N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff Writer INVERNESS A t 8 months old, Blake Waters has places to go. He hasnt learned to crawl yet, but when hes down on the floor hell get up on his hands and knees and rock. He wants to get moving. Born prematurely at 36 1/2 weeks gestation, at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, Blakes doctors said he was the biggest preemie theyd ever seen. Even today hes chubby and dimpled and all smiles. But hes a sick little boy. Born with VSD (ventricular septal defect), Blake faces open-heart surgery today, July 2, at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. He was born with a hole on the bottom chamber of his heart, so when the blood is flowing its going the wrong direction, said Yahaira Waters, Blakes mother. Currently, Blake and his parents live in Alachua County where Blakes dad, Jefft Waters, is a firefighter and an EMT. Mrs. Waters family lives in Citrus County. According to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect in the United States, affecting nearly 1 percent of births each year, or 40,000. VSD is the most common, although the National Institute of Health classifies the condition as rare. Rare or common, when its your baby who has it, its a major concern. Mrs. Waters said except for having gestational diabetes, her pregnancy was normal. When he was born, and the pediatrician did a routine check and heard a heart murmur, she said. Then when he went in for his first checkup, they noticed the murmur was louder, so they referred him to a cardiologist.

Death at speedway C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterAn Ocala man was killed Saturday night in Inverness while in a sanctioned racing event. During a special figure-8 race of school buses at Citrus County Speedway, 3600 S. Florida Ave., a bus driven by Charles Chick Whitehead, 62, overturned about 9:50 p.m. and landed on its roof. Another bus that was part of the same race also struck Whiteheads overturned bus. However, no other injuries were reported. When Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire and Rescue personnel extricated Whitehead from the wreck, he was in the drivers seat, restrained by his safety harness. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Medical Examiners office from Leesburg responded to transport the body for autopsy. The sheriffs office is investigating the crash. The case remains open and active. Due to circumstances, there will be no coverage of this weeks race. Special to the Chronicle This photo, take by cellphone, shows emergency personnel responding to the overturned bus Saturday night at Citrus County Speedway. The driver, Charles Chick Whitehead, died at the scene.

For these last two years, the numbers suggest a slowing in the decline in values, said Geoffrey Greene, Citrus County property appraiser, who on Friday issued the 2012 preliminary certification of taxable values to all Citrus County taxing authorities. This is supported by additional analysis of the change in real property taxable values alone, Greene said. The decline in real property was 2.7 percent less this year as compared to 2010. So the leveling off of decreasing values we started to see last year is continuing in 2012. The 2012 preliminary tax roll reflects a total NonSchool Taxable Value for Citrus County of $8.98 billion reflective of current market conditions. This represents a 3.7 percent decrease in values from 2011. The downward trend in values continues from the peak in 2007, when values reached a high of $12.38 billion. The 2012 taxable value for schools is $9.69 billion, down 3.9 percent, which is the same as last years rate of decline. As part of the certification of the preliminary tax roll process, this tax roll has also been submitted simultaneously to the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR) for review and approval, Greene said. Property appraiser releases preliminary data for county He doesnt look sick, thats the thing. Yahaira Waters Blakes mother. Fire station raises heat Nonprofits vie for ownership C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterOld Homosassas old fire station was declared surplus property in April, but it likely will never sit vacant: At least two groups are eyeing it. Homosassa Civic Club and We Care Food Pantry are trying to impress the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) of the merits of their plans. A new possibility is if both sides agree the fire station could become a learning center. Battle lines were drawn more than three months ago at the March 27 BOCC meeting when Jim Bitter, who at that time was the president of the civic club, described a situation he said was upsetting. You start out to do something that you think is good, and you end up being just castigated from all sides, accused of things that you have no knowledge of, Bitter told the board. Bitter said he had been accused of inciting people against the food bank, which he denied. He said he found a leaflet in his front yard describing complaints about the food bank. On behalf of the civic club, Bitter had been in talks with county staff to take ownership of the fire station, which had been leased to the civic club. Then he said he found out the food pantry had applied for it, too. He said if the civic club owned the fire station, it could lease the property to the food bank. We do a tremendous amount of good down there, and, all of a sudden, we are bad people, Bitter said. I resent that. County Administrator Brad Thorpe answered that the Old Homosassa fire station had not yet been declared a surplus property, which the BOCC basically give to a nonprofit organization. All agencies have a right to ask for its use, Thorpe told the board. You will have to make a decision about the best use for that facility. The fire station was declared surplus property April 10.

This preliminary certification of taxable value establishes the basis of budget preparations and 2012 tax levy proposals by local taxing authorities. This is the first of three certifications of value required of the Property Appraisers office each year. Greene also reported on the two cities and one other smaller taxing authority within the county. Both cities of Crystal River and Inverness are seeing slightly greater declines than the county this year. Crystal River is down 4.7 percent and Inverness is down 4.2 percent, while Homosassa Special Water District experienced a decline of 2.9 percent, the lowest decline of any taxing district. The $8.98 billion taxable value reported for the county is also the base for the Citrus County Library District, Mosquito Control District, Hospital Board and Southwest Florida Water Management District. We had hoped that 2012 would be the year for turnaround, but it looks like we may have to wait for another year, Greene said. While new construction is still down this year, Greene offered some optimism. We are starting to see a leveling off in this area, as well. New construction in 2011 was $55.9 million and this year we are at $49.0 million, Greene said. There are several new projects in the works around the county at this time that gives me reason for some encouragement. Greene reminded residents that, Value refinement is a year-round process and so values are not finalized any year until the completion of the 25-day TRIM (Truth in Millage) period, which begins in mid-August. That is the time when citizens are mailed their estimates of value and proposed millage rates and taxes for the year and are provided the opportunity to challenge values. Even then, the Value Adjustment Board appeal period also can continue to affect values. Greene said he or his staff members would be open to resolve valuation questions and issues.

The next time you climb into your car in the afternoon and the seats and the steering wheel are just slightly cooler than a fully-fired charcoal grill, think of it as a reminder that its a good time to donate blood. Summer, when school is out and families hit the road for vacations, is a time when donors are in short supply, but the need for blood is as strong as ever. If its been a while since you donated, theres no better time than now. In about the time it would take to shop for groceries for a week or knock out a crossword puzzle, a blood donor can save a life. To find a donor center or a blood drive near you, call 352527-3061. Donors must be at least 17, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health to be eligible to donate. A photo ID is also required.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Third-grade students who are attending summer activities at Crystal River Primary School have been treated to a free lunch at l ocations around Citrus County, thanks to funds provided by the federal government to feed children breakfast and lunch to anyone younger than t he age of 18. Around the COUNTY From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterThe men accused in the Wednesday morning bank heist at Nature Coast Bank on North Suncoast Boulevard in Crystal River are facing additional charges, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Jason Williams, 42, and John Leikauskas, 37, now face charges on the alleged theft of two minivans and damage to the vehicles. The duo also face robbery charges stemming from the alleged robbery at the bank. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Williams entered the bank with a rag tied on his head and a long cloth covering his face, then allegedly demanded an undisclosed amount of money. According to the police report, no weapon was used. Once Williams had the cash, he fled the scene and jumped into a stolen white van driven by Leikauskas, the report said. Sheriffs deputies eventually found the van and Leikauskas near Jump Court in Homosassa.Williams was located a short time later at the homeless camp on White Dogwood Court, also inHomosassa. The vans were stolen from two different car dealerships and had the windows smashed and steering columns damaged during the thefts.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Accused robbers face more charges Suspects charged with vehicle theft Jason Williams John Leikauskas M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER It appears to be one of summers best kept secrets. Most weekdays, three Citrus County schools offer a free breakfast and lunch to anyone younger than 18 years old, regardless of the familys income level. The federally funded Summer Food Service Program is offered at Renaissance Center, Inverness Primary School and Crystal River Primary School through June and July. Food services director Roy Pistone said the program is growing steadily. Were getting there, he said. Each year gets a little better. We would like for more people to know about it. Breakfasts and lunches also feed children attending special camps or summer reading programs. He said the Renaissance site is averaging 77 children a day; IPS is 60 a day and CRPS has about 37 kids a day eating breakfast or lunch. Pistone said the program expands each year. The district offers breakfast and lunch for children attending YMCA programs at Whispering Pines Park and the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. And next year, Pistone said he would like to expand the program to a school in Citrus Springs. The idea is to provide a nutritional breakfast and lunch for children during the summer whose parents are working or otherwise not at home. He added the challenge most kids face is getting to the school for the meals. We dont have a lot of sidewalks, he said. For a student to get to one of our sites, its a challenge. Were trying to open strategic sites. The program ends June 20 at Crystal River Primary School, and July 27 at Renaissance Center and Inverness Primary. The end date gives the district time to prepare schools for the new school year, which begins Aug. 8. For more information about the summer feeding program, visit the districts food service website at cafe.citrus.k12.fl.us.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352563-3228 or mwright@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressKEY WEST A 49-year-old grandmother and veteran endurance swimmer scuttled her quest early Sunday to become the first woman to swim unaided from Cuba to the Florida Keys, unable to close the gap on the last 26 miles of a more than 100-mile ocean odyssey. Penny Palfrey had fended off painful jellyfish stings while keeping an eye on hammerhead sharks as she attempted the crossing without a shark cage. But her support team said the tricky currents of the Florida Straits proved to be her biggest obstacle, pushing her east so she ended up losing ground just as she was achingly close to her goal, her husband Chris Palfrey said. All told, the British-born Australian athlete had been swimming nearly 41 hours since plunging into balmy waters near Havana, Cuba, on Friday to start out. She was about three-quarters of the way into her swim when she gave up the effort about midnight, just 26 miles south of Floridas Key West. Palfrey treaded water as the crew briefed her on the currents and she ultimately made the decision to end the swim. Penny has been 100 percent focused on this swim for a year, so she was quite a bit upset. There were of course some tears. She didnt know what was happening until we told her, so it took a few minutes while she took that in, her husband said during a news conference in Key West. She was hospitalized Sunday, receiving IV drips and pain medication. Painful blisters and ulcers under her tongue made it difficult to talk. Her husband said it was too early to discuss the possibility of another attempt. Her doctor said she was dehydrated and had low blood pressure, but remarked her blood work was fairly normal considering the swim. She was still strong, but 41 hours of continuous swimming ... she was physically exhausted, Chris Palfrey said. It was really only her mental focus that was keeping her going. She was going really, really well but she only had a few more hours in her. The Straits are notorious for their fickle ocean currents, including the powerful Gulf Stream. But whether she encountered problems with the Gulf Stream or a side effect of that current or some other were not immediately apparent. Palfrey had sought to become the first woman to swim from Cuba to the Keys without the aid of a shark cage. Instead she had been relying on equipment that surrounded her with an electrical field to deter the predators. Her support team consisted of more than a dozen navigators, handlers and medical personnel escorting her on the 44foot catamaran Sealuver. She said she spotted a few hammerhead sharks and her crew said they delighted in dolphin pods spotted on the ocean. After Palfrey set off Friday from Cuba, a member of her crew was tweeting to fans regularly and her webpage was updated with her location every 10 minutes or so based on data from a GPS device she wore. The daunting effort has been commonly reported as a 103-mile swim, however the GPS coordinates suggest it is more like 107 miles. She faced numerous challenges, including the prospect of physical and mental fatigue and fending off dehydration, hypothermia and potentially dangerous marine life. At the rate she had been swimming, it had been estimated the crossing would have taken more than 56 hours to complete with arrival sometime Sunday in the Keys if she had kept going. Australian Susie Maroney made the crossing in 1997 at age 22, but with a shark cage. American Diana Nyad made two unsuccessful cageless attempts last year on either side of her 62nd birthday, but had to call them off due to a debilitating asthma attack and painful Portuguese man o war stings. She has announced plans to try again this summer. Nyad tweeted, Congratulations to Penny Palfrey for her valiant efforts. We all realize what a daunting stretch of sea lies between Cuba and Florida. Strong Gulf current ends swimmers attempt Palfrey ends swim from Cuba to Fla. Associated Press British-Australian swimmer Penny Palfrey begins her bid to complete a record swim from Cuba to Florida, in Havana, Cuba, on Friday. Palfreys quest ended early Sunday as tricky current kept her from finishing the swim.

Food pantrySpeaking on behalf of the food pantry, Diane Toto said her group fed 2,600 people, including 850 children. I dont know why it has to get all crazy like this, Toto said. From her viewpoint, Toto said no one had ever before complained about the food pantrys distribution system during the past five years until the ownership of the fire station became an issue. Someone had complained to Toto about people waiting in line for food misbehaving by driving on yards and even one case of someone urinating in a yard. Were going to fix it. Were not going to allow this, Toto said she responded. Food is distributed twice a month and lasts for about three hours. Toto said she sent letters telling people they would be denied food if they misbehaved and encouraged people in line to keep an eye on each other. Last week, we did find somebody and we threw him out, Toto said.Rental income This was not an issue about the food pantry, but about the fire house. Yes, the civic club wants it, Toto said. Why do they want it? They want to lease it to us to make money. We dont pay rent, but they are going to charge us rent, so weve been told. So now when they get the firehouse, theyre going to charge us more. I dont think thats fair and I dont think thats in the best interest of the community.Learning centerA peace offering was presented at last weeks BOCC meeting. Eleanor Macias, current president of the Homosassa Civic Club, read a letter describing the good work of the civic club for more than half a century. We are now moving forward with the next phase of our evolution, an Old Homosassa Learning Center, Macias said. This would be the function of the rehabilitated fire house. The location is in the heart of our community and adjoining the Homosassa Civic Club complex, thus making it an ideal location. The center would have a number of uses: tutoring children from Homosassa Elementary School, adult literacy training, teaching senior citizens the use of computers, low-cost pet vaccinations and safe boating classes among them. We will continue to provide our facility to governmental functions, food distribution programs and social services agencies, Macias said. Initial funding for the learning center would be $20,000 offered by Dr. Stephen Chambers, director of the Chambers Family Charitable Trust. Macias said the civic group would be willing to terminate its current lease early to prepare the premises for the start of the next school term. Local supportSpeaking in support, Homosassa resident and sculptor Kevin Jenkins said, When you come down that road in Old Homosassa and you see that elementary school, your eyes go to the left and you see what essentially now is a warehouse. My friend Dr. Steve Chambers came to me a couple of months ago and said, Kevin, I want to do something in Homosassa. What needs help down there? Jenkins said his own children benefitted from tutoring. Were going to talk to Diane Toto and see what we can work out to facilitate her distribution of food, because she needs a place to distribute food from, something thats safe, thats clean and thats airtight, Jenkins said. I think that can be facilitated somewhere on the civic club property. And then what youre going to see when you come into Old Homosassa, loud and proud, Old Homosassa Learning Center.

That began the roller-coaster ride families of heart babies experience doctor visits and hospital stays, medicine and procedures, treatments and sleepless nights filled with worry. He had a lot of breathing issues, Mrs. Waters said. Hed run out of breath and be fatigued. When hed feed, hed eat a little bit and have to stop and take a break. At 2 months, he had his first EKG and echocardiogram. Waiting gameWhen the doctors found the hole in Blakes heart, they hoped it would close on its own over time. If it didnt, they hoped he would get stronger as he got a little older and better able to endure surgery to repair the defect. Last month, the doctors said it was time. I didnt sleep the first month after we found out about his heart, because I was so afraid hed stop breathing, Mrs. Waters said. When my husband was home, I felt OK because hes a firefighter and an EMT. But when hed leave to go to work, Id worry. As with any parent of a sick child, Mrs. Waters has had a crash course in learning all about her sons condition, whats normal versus whats not, the danger signs and symptoms, when to call 911. Blake cant go to daycare or be around a lot of people. When his 10-year-old stepsister has a cold, she has to go to her mothers house. Its been an adjustment for all of us, Mrs. Waters said. When we first found out, my 14-year-old son was petrified if I asked him to watch the baby for just 10 minutes. Hed say, Mom, what if something happens and I wont know what to do? After eight months, the family isnt as jumpy, but theres always a looming what if that hovers around Blake who is oblivious to it all. He just smiles and wants to get down from his moms lap. He doesnt look sick, thats the thing, Mrs. Waters said. Every time we go to his appointments and I see all the other kids you never realize what people go through until you have to be at a place with all these other parents and the kids that, due to heart conditions, they cant even hold their heads up on their own. I look at them and, yeah, I understand that he has something bad, but its not as bad as it could be, she said. How to pay for it all Right now, as they count down the days until Blakes surgery, the family is fundraising to cover medical costs. The Waters have a $5,000 health insurance deductible and then need to pay 20 percent of the total costs. Most recently, they had a car wash and sold more than 350 chicken dinners, courtesy of Century Link and the Inverness Kiwanis Club. Also, Blake Waters has a Facebook page at www.facebook. com/fundraiserforblake. Blakes aunt, Jeanette Rodriguez, said so far the people of Citrus County have been wonderful in their support of her nephew. The car wash last Saturday was a success beyond what they had hoped for. As of Wednesday, they estimated they raised more than $2,800 from chicken dinner sales. The Inverness Kiwanis Club bought all the food, and Mike Fitzpatrick at Century Link did all the cooking, Rodriguez said. As for Blakes future, hell always be a heart patient, Mrs. Waters said. Hell always have a heart defect and he most likely wont be able to play any sports as he grows up. But they havent said there would be multiple surgeries needed, she said. Its more of a waiting game as he gets older, so well see. Hopefully, we wont have to go through this again.

M ATTHEWL EE Associated PressWASHINGTON The much-hyped plan to end Syrias misery and guide its transition to democracy appears to have fallen flat despite the endorsement of Western powers. Russias objections gutted the most stringent conditions on a potential interim leader in Damascus. The Syrian opposition quickly dismissed the proposal as a waste of time and with no value on the ground. The U.S. and its allies insist the plan will force Syrian President Bashar Assad from power. Russia disagrees and Assad is unlikely to acquiesce. It all leaves U.N. envoy Kofi Annans efforts to end 15 months of bloodshed no better off than before. Western nations needed to win Russias backing for the plan at an international conference Saturday in Geneva, so they dropped the demand that those whose continued presence and participation would undermine the credibility of the transition and jeopardize stability and reconciliation would be excluded from the process. That was widely understood to mean Assad and much of his inner circle, and while the West insisted, Assads main allies in Moscow resisted intensely. As a result, the plan contains no criteria for excluding anyone from the transitional government and leaves its composition entirely up to the mutual consent of Assad administration and the fractured opposition. Both sides presumably have unlimited veto power over members of the interim government, which could prolong the stalemate and keep Assad in charge. U.S. and Western officials acknowledge the possibility of that scenario. But they insist the mutual consent language puts the opposition on equal footing with Assad in determining who will be part of the governing body. Annan said he could not imagine the Syrian people would choose anyone with blood on their hands to lead them. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, going further, said the plan requires Assad to leave because there is no chance he can meet the mutual consent standard. What we have done here is to strip away the fiction that he and those with blood on their hands can stay in power, she said. Yet as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov pointed out, the plan excludes no one. Nor does it give anyone without a vested interest any authority to suggest who might or might not be acceptable. Thats why Assads foes are skeptical, at the very least. The country has been destroyed and they want us then to sit with the killer? asked opposition figure Haitham Maleh. Bassma Kodmani, a Parisbased spokeswoman for the main opposition group, the Syrian National Council (SNC), said the agreement was ambiguous and lacks a mechanism or timetable for implementation. Western officials say they expect Russia and China, which have blocked U.N. action on Syria, to make the case to Assad that he needs to step down for the good of his country. They hope, as Clinton said Saturday, that Assad will see the writing on the wall and remove himself from the equation. So far, though, neither has shown any inclination to back away from defending Assad. Clinton and her Western counterparts will take the Annan plan to a meeting of the Friends of Syria group in Paris on Friday to get a broader endorsement of the deal. This, they hope, will raise the pressure on Russia and China to convince Assad of the need to get the transition started. Should that fail and the process remain stalled, they intended to return to the U.N. Security Council for a resolution that would compel compliance. The SNC said nearly 800 people have been killed in violence across the country in the past week and more than 14,000 people have died in the 15-month-old uprising against Assads rule. Theres an urgent need for a solution because the conflict is threatening to spill across borders after Syria shot down a warplane from neighboring Turkey, which responded by setting up anti-aircraft guns along the frontier.Matthew Lee covers international affairs and U.S. foreign policy for The Associated Press. Early full-term babies may face later school woes L INDSEY T ANNER AP Medical WriterCHICAGO Even for infants born full-term, a little more time in the womb may matter. The extra time results in more brain development, and a study suggests perhaps better scores on academic tests, too. Full-term is generally between 37 weeks and 41 weeks; newborns born before 37 weeks are called premature and are known to face increased chances for health and developmental problems. Children in the study were all fullterm, and the vast majority did fine on third-grade math and reading tests. The differences were small, but the study found more kids born at 37 or 38 weeks did poorly than did kids born even a week or two later. Researchers and other experts said the results suggest that the definition of prematurity should be reconsidered. The findings also raise questions about hastening childbirth by scheduling cesarean deliveries for convenience because women are tired of being pregnant or doctors are busy rather than for medical reasons, the researchers said. Women should at least proceed with caution before electing to have an earlier term birth, said lead author Dr. Kimberly Noble, an assistant pediatrics professor at Columbia University Medical Center. The study involved 128,000 New York City public school children and included a sizable number of kids from disadvantaged families. But the authors said similar results likely would be found in other children, too. Of the children born at 37 weeks, 2.3 percent had severely poor reading skills and 1.1 percent had at least moderate problems in math. That compares to 1.8 percent and 0.9 percent for the children born at 41 weeks. Children born at 38 weeks faced only slightly lower risks than those born at 37 weeks. Compared with 41-weekers, children born at 37 weeks faced a 33 percent increased chance of having severe reading difficulty in third grade, and a 19 percent greater chance of having moderate problems in math. These outcomes are critical and predict future academic achievement, said Naomi Breslau, a Michigan State University professor and sociologist. Her own research has linked lower IQs in 6-year-olds born weighing the same as the average birth weights at 37 and 38 weeks gestation, compared with those born heavier. The study was published online Monday in Pediatrics. The research will cause quite a stir, said Dr. Judy Aschner, a pediatrics professor and neonatology director at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. There are still a lot of babies who are being delivered more or less electively at 37 and 38 weeks, with people thinking, This is no big deal these babies are full-term. I think this is a big deal, Aschner said. She was not involved in the study. Aschner said no one is recommending trying to delay childbirth for women who go into labor at 37 weeks or 38 weeks. I dont want to panic moms whose babies come at 37 weeks, she said. But those elective early deliveries really need to stop.

Jack Jacobs can proudly and truthfully say he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his valor in Vietnam. After a recent Supreme Court ruling, anyone else is free under the First Amendment to make the same claim, whether its true or not. Some military veterans say they consider the ruling a slap in the face. For Jacobs, though, it was the right decision. He said he wore the uniform to protect peoples rights even if he doesnt agree with how they exercise those rights. There are lots of things people do that revolt me, but Im happy that I fought for this country not to give them the right to do something stupid, but for the majority of the people to do the right thing, said Jacobs, 66, who earned the Medal of Honor in 1969 for carrying several of his buddies to safety from a shelled rice field despite the shrapnel wounds in his head, the streaming blood clouding his vision. Im a free-speech guy, he said. The high court ruled 6-3 on Thursday to toss out the conviction of Xavier Alvarez, a former California politician who lied about being a decorated military veteran. He had been charged under the 2006 Stolen Valor Act, which made it a crime to lie about receiving the Medal of Honor and other prestigious military recognitions. The decision invalidated the law, as the justices ruled Alvarezs fabricated story was constitutionally protected speech. For 87-year-old Murel Winans, lies about service can cause real harm and lead people to doubt the veracity of claims made by people who actually served during wartime. He said he didnt buy the free-speech argument. You feel like you never earned it, because when you tell someone what youve done, theyll say, youre lying just like those other guys, said Winans, 87, who described himself as a fresh young hillbilly from West Virginia when he landed on Normandys Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 his 19th birthday. The law was inspired by the 1998 book Stolen Valor by B.G. Jug Burkett, a Vietnam veteran. The government had argued the law was a needed tool to protect the integrity of military medals. The ruling was issued the same day as the high courts landmark decision upholding President Barack Obamas signature health care overhaul. While much of the nation watched with rapt focus on what would become of the law that requires every American to have health insurance, many people in military communities were more focused on the ruling on the Stolen Valor Act.

Interpret dreamsI just read in the Chronicle about dreaming and this person asked, I just wonder if anybody out there had a dream book. And I want to say Perry Stone has written a book, How to Interpret Dreams and Visions.Patchwork roadI would like to ask the county commissioners if they have any plans soon of fixing Ella Street from Tompkins Street to the crossing light where it meets Turner Camp Road. Ella Street is a just a patched-up mess. They need sidewalks for the kids to walk to school on both sides of the street. Its a shame the parents have to take their children on such a patched-up road and it really needs attention soon. Editor's note: The city of Inverness is responsible for most roads within city limits. Call the Public Works department to get an up-to-date status on roads planned for improvement. Mahi-mahi? I would like to know what kind of fish mahi-mahi is. Someone told me its dolphin and I just cant believe that. Ive eaten it. I like it, but what kind of fish is it? Because if its dolphin, I cant believe theyre killing dolphins to make it mahi-mahi. And also, tilapia I would like to know what kind of fish that is. Theyre sort of foreign to me and if anybody knows, I would appreciate if you could print whatever they tell you it is because I like mahi-mahi, but I do not want to eat dolphin.Editor's note: According to Wikipedia.com, mahi-mahi is a species of dolphinfish also called dorado. It is not the same as the marine mammals known as dolphins. Tilapia is the common name for nearly 100 species of fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. O PINION Page A8 MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 Waiting for equalityRecently there was a letter in the Chronicle stating the Equal RightsAmendment had been passed years ago. Regretfully, I must correct thatstatement. Equal Rights Amendment: Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridgedby the United States or by any state on account of sex. Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriatelegislation, the provisions of this article. Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date ofratification. These simple words comprise the entire text of the Equal Rights Amendment(ERA), affirming the equal application of the U. S. Constitution to females and males. The ERA was written in 1923 by Alice Paul, founder of the National WomansParty. She and the NWP considered the ERA to be the next necessary stepafter the 19th Amendment (affirming womens right to vote) in guaranteeingequal justice under law to all citizens. The ERA was introduced into every session of Congress between 1923 and 1972,when it was passed, and sent to the states for ratification. The sevenyeartime limit in the ERAs proposing clause was extended by Congress to June30, 1982, but at the deadline, the ERA had been ratified by 35 states,leaving it three states short of the 38 required for ratification. It hasbeen reintroduced into every Congress since that time. The ERA in Congress: 112th Session (2011-2012) On June 22, 2011, ERA ratification bills were introduced in the Senate (S.J.Res. 21) by lead sponsor Sen. Robert Menendez (DN.J.) and in the House of Representatives (H.J.Res. 69) by lead sponsor Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.). On March 8, 2011, Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) introduced H.J.Res. 47, whichwould remove the ERAs ratification deadline and make it part of theConstitution when three more states ratify. The Senate companion bill,S.J.Res. 39, was introduced on March 22, 2012, by Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.). (Information from www.equal rightsamendment.org). Jean Maurer Inverness TV channels Your June 15 edition included a reader wanting an SDTV, rather than a HDTV, in order to not have to pay for a cable box to receive television without the expense of a cable box. HDTVs have high-definition capabilities, but also pick up SDTV channels. If a person has a digital television, it will pick up channels from cable without a box. It picks up sub-channels, also. For instance, channel 16 from USF has 16-1 (standard definition) and 16-2 (high definition.) They actually broadcast about six or seven sub-channels from channel 16. For a person to tune those channels, the remote control will have a dash (-) near the numbers. For channel 32, you press 32. But there is a sub-channel, so press 32-2 and youll find another channel. With Brighthouse, without a box, I get about 50 channels. So, the reader should be told he can buy the HDTV and receive SDTV programming with it. Larry Franklin (NICET certified) Spring Hill I n 2005 when their city drowned, the staff of the New Orleans TimesPicayune stayed in it longer than common sense and simple prudence would dictate. People who had lost homes, loved ones and their city itself concentrated on gathering the news and putting it out. They finally left huddled in newspaper delivery trucks, water up to the headlights, decamping to Baton Rouge, 75 miles away, where they went right back to reporting the news. Last month, the paper announced it was cutting staff and suspending daily publication, moving to a three-days-a-week schedule. We draw ever closer to the once-unthinkable day some major American city has no newspaper whatsoever. All of which lends a certain pungency to something Sarah Palin said recently at a conference of conservative activists in Las Vegas. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be, she said. According to politico, she was quoting Matt Drudge. Ordinarily, you would dismiss it as just another silly thing Sarah Palin said. There is no shortage of those. But these are hardly ordinary times for journalism. So forgive me if I am disinclined to let it go. As it happens, I spent nearly a week on the Gulf Coast in Katrinas wake. One night, I had the distinct honor of sleeping in an RV in the parking lot of the Sun Herald in Gulfport, Miss., part of an army of journalists who had descended on the beleaguered city to help its reporters get this story told. Locals wore donated clothes and subsisted on snack food. They worked from a broken building in a broken city where the rotten-egg smell of natural gas lingered in the air and houses had been reduced to debris fields, to produce their paper. Shattered, cut off from the rest of the world, people in the BiloxiGulfport region received those jerry-rigged newspapers, those bulletins from the outside world, the way a starving man receives food. It made me very proud of what we do for a living. Every citizen can be a reporter, she said. No, neither Palin nor her acolytes are to blame for the state of daily newspaper journalism. Rather, the state of daily newspaper journalism only proves English majors should not be allowed to make business decisions. Only English majors could give their product away (i.e., online), then be surprised to see revenues decline. Palins sin and she is hardly alone in this is to consider professional reporters easily replaceable by so-called citizen journalists like Drudge. Granted, bloggers occasionally and only occasionally originate news. Still, I cant envision Matt Drudge standing his ground in a flooded city to report and inform. By contrast, my Miami Herald colleague, Elinor J. Brecher, was one of the reporters who rushed toward the destruction in New York City on 9/11. Another colleague, Jacqueline Charles, spends weeks at a time on the ground, reporting the devastation in Haiti. Nicholas Kristof of the New York Timesslips into dangerous places to cover genocide and sex slavery. Carolyn Cole and Brian van der Brug of the Los Angeles Times send back stunning images of the tragedies in Japan. And every day, thousands of their colleagues attend the council meetings, pore over the budgets, decipher the court rulings that help the rest of us understand our cities, nation and world. Will citizen reporters replace that function? Will they have the resources, the credibility, the knowledge, the training or even the desire to do so? No. And not all the arias sung by Palin and like-minded people to new media and the do-it-yourself journalism of ideological crank cases will change that. The function served by daily newspaper journalism is critical to the very maintenance of democracy. Its time we recognized that. I plead guilty to tooting my own professions horn. Somebody needs to.

Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.

Recently, Citrus Builders Care had to temporarily suspend its operations, primarily because a lack of volunteers and a steady stream of funding for persons under 60 years of age. Since its inception in 2006, Citrus Builders Care, a nonprofit arm of the Citrus County Builders Association, has been an integral part in making life better for the low-income, elderly and disabled in the county. Their mission has been to reduce substandard housing by providing repair services to seriously deteriorated homes. The organization also manages an annual day of service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and has partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots programs, providing support for the worthwhile program. This past January, volunteers were out building access ramps, threshold ramps, wooden steps for mobile homes and various indoor and outdoor cleanups for its annual MLK Day of Service. Last May, the group organized a Citrus Builders Care day where it helped with home repairs and various other tasks such as trimming trees. The lack of volunteers is directly related to the downturn in the building industry, when many construction trade businesses were forced out of business or to leave the county to find work. That segment of the economy has still not recovered. Grants are available for persons 60 and older through the Citrus County Senior Foundation, but that does not cover the overwhelming need to assist people 60 and younger. The suspension of this program, even temporarily, is a blow to the low-income, elderly and disabled in the county who not only lack the financial wherewithal to pay for repairs, but the ability to perform even minor repairs. Small repairs such as leaks or clogged gutters can lead to thousands of dollars in major repairs if not addressed. We know the Citrus County Builders Association will do all it can to get the program up and running again; we just hope the hiatus is short. THE ISSUE: Citrus Builders Care suspends operations.OUR OPINION: We hope it will return once economy improves.

While thinking people absolutely know and understand an American president does not directly affect gas prices, he does, however, have the opportunity to affect prices across the board.Fluxuating Regarding Falling gas prices: Im one of those Republicans youre talking about and Im telling you, the president has all kinds of control over the gas prices. Why do you think the gas prices are going lower now? He thinks its going to get him votes in November. Stupidity runs rampant in this country. You people need to wake up.Election prices This is in rebuttal to Falling gas prices. The reason why the gas prices are dropping is because its election year for President Obama.

Unemployment In reference to todays paper, Thursday (June 13), Vote logically, I agree with this employer. I worked for a company (that) employs about 20 people. Usually theyre in the closet texting or on their cell phone. They are not embarrassed to tell my supervisor they have to go and apply for their food stamps or continue welfare. They choose to work (fewer) hours because of these entitlements. My employer states there is nothing she can do because of the fact they do show up for work, so they cannot get fired and they do not want to pay for unemployment. So the fact that more people are unemployed is because they choose to be unemployed.False rumorsDeed restrictions are a farce in Citrus County. There is a house on Citrus Springs Boulevard that has landscaping trailers, other trailers, two boats, cement mixers and assorted garbage all across the backyard, and nobody seems to care. If you want to do something, lets get the area cleaned up.Not all at fault This is in response for the person (who) wrote into the Sound Off, calling the Sound Off about the Wave hello, about hes paying for the schools and the foreclosures and the food stamps and whatnot. Well, OK, I got news for this guy: Youre not the only one whos paying for this. And the people (who) arent paying for it, you know, some of them people got laid off there and surely they would love to work, but, you know, in Citrus County there aint too much to choose from. And anyway, it aint their fault that the economys in the mess its in. Blame Bush and Obama there, OK? Matching funds It was so helpful to hear the county administrator explaining how all the spending and expenses were grants and money from the state, but (he) did not explain why, in these times of money worries, that the spending keeps going on. And even though some of them are grants, there is still the matching funds the county has to make up. After all, it is all tax money coming either from the state or county. We still pay. Now more spending, over $1.5 million for building hangars at the Inverness Airport, and then more for Crystal River. Talk about places to save money. I could give plenty more airports, sidewalks, Port Citrus, mosquito control, SWAT teams, armored vehicles, helicopters. On and on it goes. Something has to change and the change is coming at the next elections. Waving hiWave hello response: I would love to wave to you in the morning when you go to work. And just remember, there but for the grace of God go you. Feel sorry for the people who dont have a job, who have school loans, who are on food stamps, whove lost their homes. Compassion is what we need. Ill wave. Good day.Too much controlIm listening to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. For heavens sake, people, turn the C-SPAN on and listen to this. We should not join the Foreign Relations Committee treaty. That treaty is too powerful. Its too powerful, for one, for nations to get together and keep taking control of everything. We should not join it. The United States should not join it. Come on, you legislators.Deed restrictionsIn reference to the person complaining in reference to Citrus Springs deed restrictions: Be advised you live in a community with a civic association (volunteer participation) and not an HOA homeowners association, which is mandatory and generates income to help pay the attorneys to send certified letters to homeowners many out of state and out of country for legal action, which is costly. The only money generated by the Citrus Springs Civic Association is yearly dues and architectural review, which is nonexistent in this housing crisis. Finally, deed restrictions are rules set by the developer and are not, I repeat, not, law unless also against county code. Different goalsSome politicians keep saying we really need a businessman in the White House. Well, Im not so sure. After all, companies have profit as a goal. Government has or at least should have the welfare and safety of the citizens as the goal.Snake in the grass Recently, while walking on a golf course located right next to a residential area, as walking across the grass and coming near a pile of brush, my husband heard a deadly rattling sound. He stopped immediately and a rattler crawled out. We also know of friends who go to a church that has a large swampy area that is infested with water moccasins. When walking near areas like that, be careful. If walking in the woods, I would strong advise wearing high, heavy boots. Being careful can save you a lot of grief.Standard TVsIm calling to answer the person about the flat-panel TVs. You can still buy an LG or a Sony probably at WalMart that will offer you standard-definition inputs. They are available and those two manufacturers make them. You can plug your cable right into the TV, so you dont have to worry about the high definition. Drink bans This is in response to the Mayor Bloomberg there in New York with his bans on Big Gulps and all this other stuff. Instead of banning all these Big Gulps and these steaks and meats and all that, maybe they ought to ban Mayor Bloomberg there and the rest of his ilk.Deed myths The deed restrictions in Citrus Springs are nothing more than a myth. No one cares. The economics have pushed everyones home value to rock level. The sloppiness and lack of deed restrictions being enforced has caused Citrus Springs home values to go below ground level. If you dont believe me, call someone and find out what your house is not worth. Garage sales that run three days a week, every week, from the same house, are ridiculous. Those are a business.O PINION C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, J ULY2, 2012 A9 Sound OFF Hot Corner: DOGHOUSES Hot Corner: COCKADOODLES No assumptions Regarding No divine doghouses, June 19: Kettle, meet pot. In the Sound Off, you say God did not create a home for the dogs when He created them. How does she know? How do you know? In my world, it is the female (who) gives life, the male (who) takes life. So why dont you wait until the end to find out? What will you do when you find out that He is a she? Dont assume Hes a he.Outside animals This is in response to No divine doghouses. I know God did not create doghouses when He created dogs, because He did not create people houses when He created people. I would never leave my dogs out in the 90-degree heat with no water. They always have water and they have shelter and they dont want to come in. They like it out there. Theyre chicken dogs; theyre yard dogs. I take very good care of my dogs and they would never die from the heat, because they do have places to go. And I am the lady who wrote about dogs should be in the yard to take care of the chickens. And to the person who wrote I should stay in my yard to take care of the chickens: When my dog pays my mortgage, I will stay in the yard to take care of the chickens. Wrong worriesIn response to No divine doghouses: Id just like to say I really wonder about people like you, why youre so worried about dogs being out in the 90-degree heat when youre not even taking into consideration how many hundreds and hundreds of children live here in Homosassa, Crystal River, Citrus County, (who) dont have a home. These are human beings out there in the heat. Quit worrying about the dogs and worry about the people. God loves the people. Share recipe?I was pretty shocked to find out that Cockadoodles had closed. I have been there almost weekly for several years, getting their wonderful wheat bread. Im wondering if somewhere still carries that wheat bread or if they would share the recipe to it since the restaurant is no longer in business.

Student attacked by chimp improvesJOHANNESBURG Doctors are reporting improvement in the condition of an American graduate student attacked by chimps he was studying in South Africa. In a statement, Mediclinic Nelspruit said Andrew F. Oberle, who had been in critical condition since Thursdays attack, was stable enough Sunday for doctors to bring him into the operating room to clean and stitch his multiple bites and attend to fractures and other injuries. Oberle remains in intensive care, but is no longer in critical condition. Two chimpanzees at the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden in eastern South Africa pulled Oberle under a fence into their enclosure. Oberle, 26, is studying anthropology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He was on his second study visit to the sanctuary for abused and orphaned chimpanzees. Associated Press A man casts one of his ballots at a polling station Sunday in Atlacomulco, Mexico.

From wire reports World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressNEW YORK Who knew the calendar could cause so much vacation heartburn? For the first time in five years, Independence Day falls on a Wednesday, leaving travelers unsure when to celebrate and worrying those who make a living off tourists. The midweek holiday seems to have travelers confused, said Anthony Del Gaudio, vice president of hotel sales for Loews Hotels, which isnt seeing the normal July 4 spike in bookings. Those who sell vacations say this years calendar gives Americans more options: Tack on Saturday through Tuesday or Thursday through Sunday to the holiday, or just take the entire week off. But consumers confidence has been waning. Now, some arent happy about having to burn an extra vacation day or two to get that long weekend. From 2008 through 2011, the work holiday fell on either Friday or Monday, so employees and their families got an automatic three-day weekend, similar to Memorial Day and Labor Day. Its irritating because everybody wants those three-, four-day holiday weekends, said Tom Donohue, who runs an HIV awareness program based in Charlottesville, Va. In recent years, hes traveled to see family in Pennsylvania, including his father whose birthday is on July 2. Theres swimming and boating on the Susquehanna River and of course fireworks. Not this year. Donohue plans to stay local, savings those days off for an actual vacation, a Caribbean cruise in October. Others are determined to have their summer holiday no matter what. Alicia Hutton, her husband and their two daughters are flying from Boston to Baltimore to see family. The parents had to take two extra days off from their jobs to make the Wednesday-Saturday trip work. Its not ideal because normally we would tack on one day to a long weekend, Hutton said. AAA, one of the nations largest travel agencies, projects 42.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home between July 3 and July 8. Thats roughly the same amount that traveled in 2007, the last time July Fourth fell on a Wednesday. Last year, when the holiday fell on a Monday, 40.3 million people traveled.

Burns, after an overnight stay in Miami, is traveling to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador for the Fourth of July holiday. Associated PressFRANCONIA, Va. A day after seeking refuge at shopping malls and movie theaters, hoping the lights would be back on when they returned, 3 million residents faced a grim reality Sunday: stifling homes, spoiled food and a looming commute filled with knocked-out stoplights. Two days after storms tore across the eastern U.S., power outages were forcing people to get creative to stay cool in dangerously hot weather. Temperatures approached 100 degrees in many storm-stricken areas, and utility officials said the power will likely be out for several more days. If we dont get power tonight, well have to throw everything away, Susan Fritz, a mother of three, said grimly of her refrigerator and freezer. Fritz came to a library in Bethesda, Md., so her son could do school work. She charged her phone and iPad at her local gym. On Sunday night, federal and state officials in the mid-Atlantic region gave many workers the option of staying home Monday to ease congestion on the roads. Federal agencies will be open in Washington, but non-emergency employees have the option of taking leave or working from home. Marylands governor also gave state workers wide leeway for staying out of the office. The storm was blamed for 14 deaths, most from trees falling on homes and cars. Meanwhile, Coast Guard officials say they have suspended the search for a man who went missing early Saturday while boating during the storm off Maryland. The bulk of the damage was in West Virginia, Washington and the capitals Virginia and Maryland suburbs. At least six of the dead were killed in Virginia, including a 90-year-old woman asleep in her bed when a tree slammed into her home. Two young cousins in New Jersey were killed when a tree fell on their tent while camping. Two were killed in Maryland, one in Ohio, one in Kentucky and one in Washington. From Atlanta to Baltimore, temperatures approached or exceeded triple digits. Atlanta set a record with a high of 105 degrees, while the temperature hit 99 at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport just outside the nations capital. Associated PressCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Melted bowling balls in the front yard were among the strange sights that met C.J. Moore upon her return Sunday to her two-story home, now reduced to ashes by the worst wildfire in Colorado history. You wouldnt think bowling balls would melt, she told The Associated Press by phone from the scene in her Mountain Shadows neighborhood, where she was among residents who were allowed temporary visits to areas most affected by the fire. More than a week after it sparked June 23, the Waldo Canyon fire was still being attacked by some 1,500 personnel. But crews working grueling shifts through the hot weekend made progress against the 26-square-mile fire. So far, the blaze, now 45 percent contained, has damaged or destroyed nearly 350 homes. It was just one of several still burning in the West, where parched conditions and searing heat contributed to the woes facing crews on hundreds of square miles across Utah, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.

Team spokesman Joel Glass confirmed a meeting between Hennigan and Howard, but declined to discuss any particulars from it. Howard is in California, rehabbing a lateseason back surgery. Yahoo Sports and ESPN.com have reported that Howard reissued a preseason trade request in that meeting and listed the Brooklyn Nets as his preferred destination. Hennigan said last week he wanted to keep all discussions with Howard confidential, and ownership has told him only to do what is in the best interest of the organization concerning Howard. Howard gave up the optout clause in his contract last season and is under contract in Orlando through the 2012-13 season. NHL free agency gets under way Ryan Suter and Zach Parise chose to take time to sort through offers from a slew of suitors on the first day of NHL free agency. I dont expect a quick decision, Suters agent, Neil Sheehy, wrote in an email Sunday to The Associated Press. P.A. Parenteau, meanwhile, was among the many NHL free agents to agree to deals Sunday. Parenteau, a 29-year-old forward coming off a 67point season with the New York Islanders, signed a four-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche just hours after hitting the market. Sheehy fielded countless phone calls, emails and messages from teams hoping to sign his coveted client. New Jersey attempted to re-sign Parise and Nashville tried to keep Suter before they hit the market, but the Devils and Predators ended up being relegated to competing with other offers. Parise and Suter are both 27, potentially entering the prime of their careers. Teams seeking a shortterm answer in net may make offers to 40-year-old goaltender Martin Brodeur, who, like Parise and Suter, has been with only one NHL team.

From wire reports Associated Press Tiger Woods acknowledges the gallery on the 18th green on Sunday after winning the AT&T National tournament at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. Associated PressBETHESDA, Md. Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National another win by Tiger Woods. Only this win didnt follow a typical script. Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71. Woods won for the third time this year, the most of anyone on the PGA Tour, and it was the 74th win of his career. That moved him past Jack Nicklaus into second place on the tour list, eight short of the record set by Sam Snead. Woods, who finished at 8-under 276, moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009. He effectively clinched the win with a 9-iron down the hill toward the peninsula green on the 18th, a shot so pure that Woods started walking and twirled the club moments after he made contact. And so ended a wild week in Washington record heat Friday, followed by a wind storm that topped dozens of trees at Congressional and forced the tournament to keep spectators out Saturday. They were back in force for the final round, and they were treated to some pretty good theater. What an incredible week, said Woods, the host of the AT&T National and a winner for the second straight time it has come to Congressional. Everybody, thank you for being patient with us. Yesterday was a silent day. I think everyone saved up for today. What an atmosphere to play in front of. There wasnt much to cheer in the final hour except for the 15th hole, when Woods holed a 20-foot birdie putt that crawled into the front of the cup, and Van Pelt matched that birdie with a 10-footer as the pressure was building. Van Pelt had him on the ropes on the par-5 16th by ripping a 345yard tee shot and having only a 6iron into the green. Woods hit a spectator in the left rough with his tee shot, laid up, and then attacked a back flag only to see the ball tumble over the green and down an 8-foot slope. Thats when Van Pelt answered with unforced errors of his own. His 6-iron was heavy and didnt quite reach the bunker, meaning he had to plant his feet in the sand and grip the wedge on the shaft. He moved it only a few yards, still in the collar of the rough, and chipped about 12 feet by the hole. Woods chip up the slope rolled 15 feet by, and he missed the putt to end his streak of 41 straight holes without a bogey. Van Pelt also missed his par putt, and they walked away from that mess still tied for the lead. On the 17th, Van Pelt caught a flier from the first cut of rough and the ball shot over the green and near the grandstand, leaving him an impossible chip. He hit Woods notches win at Congressional, nine shy of new record See WOODS / Page B8 Associated PressNEW YORK Josh Hamilton is set to lead a Texas parade to the All-Star game. Now, fans will decide if Chipper Jones gets one final appearance or whether its time for teen sensation Bryce Harper. Hamilton drew a record total of more than 11 million votes, and the slugger was among seven Rangers chosen Sunday as All-Stars. A trio of San Francisco Giants rallied in the last week to claim spots while three Yankees also made the starting lineup. I dont think the Texas Rangers have to apologize because weve got good players, AL manager Ron Washington of Texas said. I certainly didnt pick my guys being selfish, I picked them very deserving of being AllStars, bottom line. Washington fastballer Stephen Strasburg and Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey were two of the 66 players chosen by fans, managers and big leaguers for the showcase July 10 in Kansas City. So was 20-year-old Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout, who leads the AL in hitting at .339 and drew more than 800,000 write-in votes. Few of the races for starting spots were close and there seemed to be little complaining about the fans choices. OK, sure, David Wright couldve gotten the nod over Pablo Sandoval. But there certainly will be campaigning this week when it comes to Jones and Harper after they were left off for now, anyway. The NL and AL each have one spot left, with fans voting online through Thursday to select one of five candidates in both leagues. Jones and Harper are two of the NL possibilities. At 40, Jones is a seventime All-Star and plans to retire after this season. Banged up, the Atlanta third baseman has managed to hit near .300. This being my last year, it would be fun to go. Id love to take my kids, Jones said. At 19, Harper started the season in Triple-A. The Washington outfielder has dazzled since his promotion with his bat, arm and flatout hustle. Im an old-timer, so Id probably lean toward Chipper, NL manager Tony La Russa said on the TBS selection show.

Using its big hitters and some splendid pitching, Dunnellon proved too much for Central Citrus as it cruised to a 14-2 victory. We rely on pitching and defense, Dunnellon head coach Mike Michaud said. We had one rough inning there where we gave up a couple of runs, but the kids came back. Dunnellon batted first and immediately let its intentions be known by scoring the first run off Richie Foxs double. Fox had a huge game for Dunnellon, going 4 for 4 (two doubles and a single) with a two-run homer in the third, including a game-leading six RBIs. Central Citrus demonstrated some real poise at bat in the first inning. Dylan Pollizi (3 for 3 with two singles and double, one RBI) connected as well as teammate Daniel Sayadoff.

Left-hander Drew Smyly (3-3) pitched five solid innings, allowing three runs and three hits to get his first win since May 25. The rookie walked one and struck out four. Five different players drove in runs for the Tigers, who beat the struggling Rays for the third time in four days. Tampa Bay, which didnt have a hit until the fifth inning, has dropped six of its last seven games. Indians 6, Orioles 2 BALTIMORE Justin Masterson pitched seven innings of five-hit ball, Shelley Duncan homered and hit two doubles, and the Cleveland Indians beat the skidding Baltimore Orioles. Aaron Cunningham also homered for the Indians, who took three of four from the Orioles. Cleveland totaled 55 hits in the four games, including eight for extra bases in the finale. The Indians lost four their five previous series, including three straight on the road. Jim Thome went 0 for 4 in his Baltimore debut. Acquired Saturday in a trade with Philadelphia, the 41-year-old slugger struck out twice and grounded out twice. Yankees 4, White Sox 2NEW YORK Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after wasting a chance with the bases loaded his first time up against Gavin Floyd, and the New York Yankees again rode the long ball to a 4-2 win Sunday over the Chicago White Sox for a series split. Eric Chavez connected for a two-run drive in the second inning, helping New York raise its major league-leading total to 124 home runs. Twins 10, Royals 8MINNEAPOLIS Trevor Plouffe homered twice, Josh Willingham and Drew Butera had one each and the Minnesota Twins came back from four runs down to take a big lead, then held on to beat the Kansas City Royals 10-8 Sunday. With one run already across in the sixth, Willingham hit a three-run homer to tie the game at 5. Two batters later, Plouffe hit a solo shot for his second of the day. Butera added a three-run shot in the eighth. Angels 10, Blue Jays 6 TORONTO Rookie Mike Trout hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, Mark Trumbo and Alberto Callaspo added two-run shots and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6 on Sunday. Trout led off the eighth with a blast to center against Francisco Cordero (3-5) as the Angels spoiled Torontos Canada Day party and disappointed the crowd of 34,853. One out later, Albert Pujols singled and Trumbo, named an All-Star reserve before the game, followed with a drive to left, his 20th homer this season. Trout went 2 for 4 with a walk and scored three times, raising his AL-leading average to .339. Red Sox 2, Mariners 1 (10 innings) SEATTLE David Ortiz hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 for a split of the four-game series. Ryan Kalish, pinch-hitting for Brent Lillibridge, hit a one-out double off the rightcenter field wall against Seattle reliever Brandon League in the 10th. Dustin Pedroia followed with a single to right, putting runners at the corners. Ortiz, who will be the ALs designated hitter in the All-Star game, hit a 2-0 pitch to deep right field for the go-ahead run. Athletics 3, Rangers 1 ARLINGTON, Texas Yu Darvish threw a wild pitch that allowed the tiebreaking run and lost at home for the first time with the Texas Rangers, a 3-1 defeat against Oakland despite the Japanese aces 11 strikeouts in seven innings Sunday night. Brandon Moss homered for Oakland and left-hander Travis Blackley (2-2) picked off two runners while holding a Texas lineup filled with All-Stars to one run over seven innings. The fifth 10-strikeout game for Darvish (10-5) matched NL All-Star pitcher R.A. Dickey for the most in the majors this year. The 11 Ks equaled his season high.NATIONAL LEAGUEGiants 4, Reds 3 SAN FRANCISCO Angel Pagan hit a game-ending double that right fielder Jay Bruce misplayed in the wind with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the San Francisco Giants a four-game series split with a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Buster Posey poked a pitch from Jose Arredondo (4-2) down the right-field line that bounced into the stands for a two-out double. Then Pablo Sandoval was walked intentionally to set the stage for a wild finish. The crowd let out a sigh when Bruce drifted under Pagans fly ball to right until those whipping gusts along the bay carried the ball over his head. The 42,039 from the sold-out stands at AT&T Park erupted, Pagan tossed his helmet and the Giants streamed out of the dugout in celebration. Brewers 2, Diamondbacks 1MILWAUKEE Pinch runner Carlos Gomez raced home following two throwing errors after he stole second base in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over Arizona. Gomez entered after Aramis Ramirez drew a leadoff walk from Patrick Corbin (2-4). With one out, Gomez swiped second and jumped to his feet as the throw from catcher Miguel Montero ended up in center field. Outfielder Gerardo Parra picked up the ball but threw wildly to third, allowing Gomez to score the winning run. Nationals 8, Braves 4 ATLANTA Ryan Zimmerman homered and drove in four runs and Gio Gonzalez scuffled for his sixth straight road victory to help Washington beat Atlanta in 105-degree heat. Gonzalez (11-3) capped his second AllStar selection despite allowing five hits, four runs and four walks in five-plus innings. Washington, which has won four of five, took a 4-0 lead in the first off Tim Hudson (6-4). Cardinals 5, Pirates 4ST. LOUIS Allen Craig homered for the second time in three days and All-Star Yadier Molina also connected for the Cardinals. Jason Motte got the last four outs for his 17th save in 21 chances to end the Pirates four-game winning streak. Jake Westbrook (7-6) beat the Pirates for the first time in six career decisions. Cubs 3, Astros 0CHICAGO Travis Wood pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and used some nifty baserunning to set up Anthony Rizzos go-ahead single as the Chicago Cubs completed a three-game sweep of Houston. Astros star first baseman Carlos Lee said he was still undecided on whether he will accept a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was 1 for 4 with a double in the ninth. Wood (3-3) held the Astros to three hits in 7 2-3 innings. He also doubled and scored on Rizzos single in the sixth off Wandy Rodriguez (6-6). Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth for eighth save in 10 chances. He saved all three games of the series. Marlins 5, Phillies 2 MIAMI Ricky Nolasco pitched seven strong innings, Hanley Ramirez hit a tworun home run, and the Miami Marlins completed a three-game sweep of struggling Philadelphia. It was the first Marlins sweep of the Phillies since August 2009 at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies have lost five straight. All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton also homered, and Omar Infante and John Buck each had RBI doubles for the Marlins, who have won four straight. Nolasco (7-6) won and Heath Bell earned his 17th save in 21 chances. Joe Blanton (7-7) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. Padres 2, Rockies 0DENVER Kip Wells tossed seven strong innings for his first win in nearly three years, Chris Denorfia and Alexi Amarista had two hits apiece and the San Diego Padres beat Colorado. Huston Street, picked for the NL AllStar team earlier in the day, pitched a perfect ninth to pick up his 12th save in as many chances. Wells (1-1) last won on Sept. 20, 2009, when he beat the Marlins as a member of the Cincinnati Reds. Drew Pomeranz (0-3) turned in an impressive outing after being recalled from Triple-A before the game. He allowed an unearned run on two hits in six innings.

Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Spain trounced Italy 4-0 in the European Championship final on Sunday, retaining its title and extending its reign as the best team in world football. Goals from David Silva and Jordi Alba in the first half gave Spain a convincing lead. Fernando Torres and fellow substitute Juan Mata added goals in the last six minutes. Italys task was tough enough with 11 players, and it became impossible with just 10 after the 64th minute. All its substitutes were used when midfielder Thiago Motta, who had only been on the pitch for seven minutes, was taken off due to injury. The victory lifted Spain to a record third straight major title, after winning Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. The hat trick of titles is an unprecedented feat for a European team, as is successfully defending the championship. Spain even allowed Italy the majority of first-half possession, yet its trademark quick passing game was lethal when required. Spain captain Iker Casillas was outstanding in keeping Italys attack at bay for his 10th consecutive clean sheet in tournament knockout matches. The victory was the most comprehensive in a European Championship final, beating West Germanys 3-0 win over the Soviet Union in 1972. It was also a perfect response to Spains critics, who said the world and European champion had become boring. Possession was kept with endless back-and-forth passes to deny opponents the ball and stifle games, not win them, the detractors said. But Spain answered by playing its best and slickest football at Euro 2012 when most was at stake. Sergio Ramos and Xavi Hernandez had already threatened Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffons goal when Spain took the lead in the 14th minute. Andres Iniestas incisive forward pass to find Cesc Fabregas was superb. Fabregas drifted behind defender Giorgio Chiellini and surged to the byline, drawing Buffon to his near post. Silva waited eight yards out to head a crisp chip back from Fabregas into the net. Spain then increased its lead just four minutes before the break. Hernandez had been below his usual high standard at Euro 2012, but he put a weighted pass into Albas stride as the left-back burst past four Italian defenders to slip his shot past Buffon. The great Italian keeper also witnessed a master class from his friend and opposite number Casillas, who was on a winning Spanish side for the 100th time. Casillas has not conceded a goal in a knockout match since Zinedine Zidane scored for France in a 3-1 win, which knocked Spain out of the 2006 World Cup in the second round. At 1-0, Casillas twice stretched to tip crossed balls to safety, as Daniele De Rossi and then Mario Balotelli seemed poised to head goalwards. Casillas also twice went low to save shots from Antonio Cassano before Albas goal put Spain into its comfort zone. Cassano was replaced at halftime by Antonio Di Natale, who has scored the only goal Spain conceded at Euro 2012 a 1-1 draw to open its Group C campaign in Gdansk, Poland. Di Natale quickly unsettled Spain, heading just over before forcing Casillas into a double save when released into space by Andrea Pirlos clever pass. However, Motta lasted just five minutes before he appeared to pull his right hamstring and left in obvious pain. Spain cruised through the second half, to cries of Ole from its fans, before inflicting further agony on Italy. When Italy surrendered the ball in its half, Xavi collected and quickly found Torres to slide his shot past Buffon and inside the far post in the 84th minute. Minutes later, Juan Mata came off the bench like Torres, and took his Chelsea teammates pass to score into an Italian goal left unguarded yet again. It was his first shot of the tournament, and Spains final goal. Spain crushes Italy 4-0 in European Championship final Associated Press Peter Sagan of Slovakia crosses the finish line Sunday to win the first stage of the Tour de France in Seraing, Belgium. Associated PressSERAING, Belgium Peter Sagan blushed, giggled and eventually brushed off comparisons to Lance Armstrong on Sunday after becoming the youngest rider to win a Tour de France stage since the Texan nearly a generation ago. The 22-year-old Slovak gave a command performance in his debut in a full Tour stage by outsprinting Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara, who mounted a spirited and successful defense of his yellow jersey over a hilly ride in eastern Belgium in Stage 1. The standings among the top contenders to win the three-week race didnt change much after the 123mile loop from Liege to suburban Seraing featuring five low-grade climbs. Bradley Wiggins of Britain and defending champion Cadel Evans trailed close behind in a splintered pack. Overall, Wiggins is second behind Cancellara, seven seconds back, and Evans is another 10 seconds slower in eighth. Sagan, who won five of eight stages in this years Tour of California among the 13 stage victories he has this year, placed his hands on his shoulders after edging out Cancellara and Norways Edvald Boasson Hagen. It was the culmination of a tricky uphill patch with cobblestones right before the finish. The promising Slovak becomes the youngest rider to capture a Tour stage since Armstrong won his first of his 22 career Tour stage victories at age 21 in Stage 8 in 1993. The youngest of all time is Italys Fabio Battesini, who was 19 when he won one in the 1931 Tour. Sagan landed another spot in the history books: No other Tour debutant has won the first Tour road stage since Fabio Baldato of Italy 17 years ago, according to Infostrada, a Dutch sports information service. David Zabriskie of the United States won the opening time-trial in his first Tour in 2005, but that wasnt a full road stage. Asked whether he has the potential to be the next Armstrong, Sagan cautioned that such talk was a bit premature: I would like to be, but Im so young its impossible to know what the future will be. He rose to 23rd place overall, 24 seconds behind Cancellara, after entering the day in 56th place 3:49 behind after the prologue that Sagan said wasnt suited to his talents. At least two crashes marred Sundays stage amid escalating tensions within the pack near the finish, where roadside crowds drew in to get a glimpse of the whirring bicycles. High-profile riders including Spains Luis Leon Sanchez and Michael Rogers of Australia went down in one late spill, but got back up. Bad luck continued to plague Germanys Tony Martin, who went down in a crash early Sunday. The world time-trial champion poppeda flat and lost time in the prologue the day before. At one point, with his team leader Evans riding in his wake, Marcus Burghardt of Germany caused his bike to jump to avoid a plastic bottle in a downhill patch about 10 miles before the finish. Mondays second stage takes the pack on a mostly flat 129-mile jaunt slicing west across Belgium from Vis to Tournai, which could favor a sprint finish. Armstrong caliber? Not just yet, says young tour de force Kayme Hickey, who pitched almost five full innings with seven strikeouts, allowed no runs. Brandon Di Rosa, who pitched three innings, and a confident Central Citrus managed to shut out Dunnellon in the top of the second. Central Citrus then took the lead in the bottom of the inning, as Pollizi doubled, batting in Donovan Willmon (1 for 2 with a double). Pollizi then capitalizedon an error and stole home, giving Central Citrus the 2-1 lead. Then in the third inning, Dunnellons Fox struck a devastating blow to Central Citrus. Fox smacked a homer over the left-field fence following Jay Fraziars double, which brought home the tying run. As Fraziars (4 for 4 with two singles, two doubles and four RBIs) and Fox crossed the plate to give Dunnellon the 4-2 lead, the wind appeared to go out of Central Citrus sails. We played our worst game in the field of the whole tournament, Central Citrus head coach Dan Sayadoff said of the loss. We just got outmatched today. Theyre a great team and they deserve to win. They completely outplayed us in all phases. We made too many errors. Dunnellon never looked back, outhitting Central Citrus 15-6. Dunnellon smoothly added more runs every inning to win the game 14-2 for the championship. Our goal is to get our top few guys on base who can really run. (And they) came through (for us) with Fox and Fraziars (hitting big) and then (we) settled back to rely on our pitchers. Michaud said. 10-11 BASEBALL West Hernando 16, Crystal River 10Despite the score, Crystal River gave West Hernando a run. Strong efforts from the plate and mound got Crystal River close to staging a comeback before West Hernando pulled away for the win. Some standouts for Crystal River included Jon Baer, 2 for 3 with two RBIs; SJ Natteal, 2 for 3 with three RBIs; Roman Newkirk chasing down several outs in center field; and Ian Nelson pitching well. 10-11 BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS Inverness 10, Dunnellon 5 Some standouts for Inverness included Evan Badger, 3 for 4 with two doubles and a single); clutch hitters Gavin Shepherd (two RBIs) and Elijah Lindall; and Noah Cino, who pitched a full game with eight strikeouts. Vinny Muzzuppa came away with a great catch in the top of the sixth from out in right field. Inverness dedicated its championship season to the late Dr. Shawn Kersh. Dunnellon standouts included Mark Cranfield, 2 for 3 with a double and a single, three RBIs; and Trace Corne with a fantastic catch in left field. Starting pitcher Timothy Greaves and relief pitcher Conner Neil also performed well. MAJOR BASEBALL Dunnellon 7, Greater Hudson 2Standouts in Dunnellons victory included Steven Penn, two-run homer; Matthew Webb, double with two RBIs; and Trevor Vonseggern, who closed the game by keeping Greater Hudson quiet.

Coverage of that event can be found at right. Additionally, coverage of the 5K Citrus Summer Showdown published Sunday was from 2006. The 2012 race is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, July 14. The Chronicle regrets the errors. L ARRYB UGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Bob Brockett didnt train for a washing machine. The 57-year-old Lecanto resident found himself there when he swam in the Crystal River Fourth of July Triathlon Saturday at Fort Island Gulf Beach. Brockett, one of the original founders of the triathlon, finished 19th with a time of 1:09.56. I was swimming in a washing machine, Brockett said. The swim added 30 seconds to my team. The conditions were wonderful. Brockett was one of 265 participants in the popular triathlon. The race featured a former two-time world triathlon champion who ended up finishing third. The winner started in the second wave and won. If Vinnie Monseau had some physical problems during the race, he could have handled them himself. The 43-year-old Tampa resident is an emergencyroom doctor at Spring Hills Oak Hill Hospital and won the race. Former world champion Evan Evans of Palm Coast was third with a time of 1:04.18. Evans shot out to a commanding lead in the swimming and cycling legs, only to have Monseau beat him. Monseau won with a time of 1:03.32.5. I won this two years ago, Monseau said. I started in the second wave. I knew that if I could stay within three minutes of him (Evans), I would win. I didnt have to pass him to win. I love it here. Its a great experience. They do a great job here. Vincent Mahr of Orlando finished second at 1:03.36. Evans parents live in Dunnellon. The 36-year-old firefighter from Palm Coast took the early lead swimming and biking. He won the world title in 2005 and 2006. He won national titles in 2004, 2010 and 2011. It was very windy, Evans said. Tarpon Springs resident Celia Dubey was the female winner. She had a time of 1:09:01 and was 15th overall. She was the masters winner of the Memorial Day Triathlon and was a silver medalist in the Duathlon World Championships in Spain. She owns the Total Fitness Gym in Tarpon Springs and had her team compete. She also coaches triathletes. It was windy out, she said. The current was very slow. This is one of my favorite spots to race. Tampas Karina Findley took the female masters title with a time of 1:15:51. Wesley Chapel resident Justin Page was eighth overall with a time of 1:07:17.5. Race director Chris Moling was happy there was a race. (Tropical Storm) Debby is gone, Moling said. Our biggest concern was with the weather. This area (the starting area) was flooded earlier this week. Another race was canceled due to flooding. Everyone was concerned. We are all happy to be here after the storm.

ER doctor beats two-time world champ to win annual triathlon Vinnie Monseau, 43, finishes first The league that wins the All-Star game gains homefield advantage in the World Series. The NL won last year, then St. Louis became the ninth straight home team to win Game 7 in the Series. Giants catcher Buster Posey, back from a devastating injury last season, was the NL s top vote-getter and beat out Philadelphias Carlos Ruiz, the leagues leading hitter. Wright and Ruiz made the NL team as reserves. Posey, Sandoval and San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera overcame late deficits to win starting spots. Giants ace Matt Cain, who pitched a perfect game in June, made the NL pitching staff. Texas will have a teamrecord three starters. Hamilton, who hit four homers in a game earlier this season and leads the majors in RBIs, will be in the outfield with Adrian Beltre at third base and Mike Napoli at catcher. Second baseman Ian Kinsler, shortstop Elvis Andrus, starter Matt Harrison and reliever Joe Nathan also made the AL roster from Texas. The two-time AL champions began the day with a major leaguebest 50 wins. Derek Jeter became a 13time All-Star shortstop and will start for the AL with Yankees teammates Robinson Cano at second base and Curtis Granderson in the outfield. Injured New York pitcher CC Sabathia was picked, too, and will attend the festivities but not play. Prince Fielder of Detroit will start at first base. He was the MVP of last years All-Star game while playing in the NL for Milwaukee. Thrilling, everytime, Fielder said. Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp edged Milwaukees Ryan Braun by 100,000 votes for the third spot in the NL outfield. Kemp, beaten out by Braun for the NL MVP award last year, is on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring and looks doubtful to play. Braun or perhaps Pittsburgh center fielder Andrew McCutchen could wind up starting in Kemps place. Dickey, at 37, made his first All-Star team. He leads the majors with 12 wins and could become just the second knuckleballer to start an All-Star game. Dutch Leonard did it in 1943, STATS LLC said. Strasburg is 9-3 with a 2.81 ERA and tops the majors in strikeouts for the NL Eastleading Nationals. Last season at this time, he was working his way back to the big leagues while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Its going to be a tremendous experience, and its a huge honor for me. Its amazing to think where I was a year ago, so its great to see all the hard work has paid off, but its not done, he said in Atlanta. Its only the halfway point of the year. Weve still got a long ways to go. The fans, players and managers combined to pick 14 first-time All-Stars in the NL, including somersaulting Cincinnati reliever Aroldis Chapman and San Diego closer Huston Street. No way. Really? Street said. There were nine firsttimers in the AL, including designated hitter Billy Butler from the host Royals. Every team gets at least one All-Star. Selected from the Tampa Bay Rays were starting pitcher David Price and closer Fernando Rodney. The AL starters: Fielder, Cano, Jeter, Beltre, Hamilton, Granderson, Napoli, Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista and Boston DH David Ortiz. The NL starters: Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto, Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla, shortstop Rafael Furcal and outfielder Carlos Beltran of St. Louis, Kemp, Sandoval, Posey and Cabrera.

D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Its both a bear and bull market for Hollywood. The bear is Ted, Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlanes comedy for Universal Pictures about a talking teddy bear, which opened as the No. 1 movie with $54.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. And the bulls are baring it in the Warner Bros. release Magic Mike, Channing Tatum and Steven Soderberghs malestripper tale that debuted a strong No. 2 with $39.2 million. The two new movies were backed by a deep bench, with Pixar Animations Disney fairy tale Brave holding up well at No. 3 with $34 million in its second weekend. Tyler Perrys Madeas Witness Protection, the latest from the dependable breadwinner for Lionsgate Films, opened solidly at No. 4 with $26.4 million. The four movies combined to keep Hollywood in the money compared to the same weekend last year, when Transformers: Dark of the Moon launched with $97.9 million. It was an equally big weekend overseas, where two huge franchises opened. The 20th Century Fox animated sequel Ice Age: Continental Drift opened with $78 million in 34 international markets, while Sonys The Amazing Spider-Man debuted with $50.2 million in 13 markets. Amazing Spider-Man opens domestically Tuesday for the Fourth of July weekend, while Continental Drift has its U.S. debut July 13. Domestic revenues totaled $207.7 million, up 3 percent from the same weekend in 2011, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. That was quite an accomplishment, considering the Fourth of July fell on Monday last year, making it a long holiday weekend. D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Audiences are proving far more unpredictable than the movies Hollywood has created to pack them into theaters this summer. Studios have released a familiar assortment of action tales, family flicks and star-driven comedies since the summerblockbuster season began in early May. Yet while overall business has been solid, fans have been choosier than usual, spending a fortune on one superhero sensation, kicking in for a handful of midline hits and generally bypassing everything else. Movies featuring box-office heavyweights Johnny Depp (Dark Shadows), Tom Cruise (Rock of Ages) and Adam Sandler (Thats My Boy) fell flat, as did the action spectacle Battleship. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones pulled in fair crowds for Men in Black 3, though the action comedy played to a smaller audience than its predecessors. The animated tales Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted and Brave joined the action adventures Snow White & the Huntsman and Prometheus as $100 million hits. But nearing its midpoint, a summer that looked like an easy record-breaker at the start really can be summed up in two words: The Avengers. With $600 million domestically, the Marvel Comics superhero mash-up accounts for a third of Hollywoods summer revenues, taking in more than the rest of the seasons top-five movies combined. The Avengers continues a trend in which a few big movies suck up a greater portion of moviegoers money as studios focus on their so-called tent-pole releases, franchise films that cost a fortune to make but pay off like billion-dollar jackpots when they work. But The Avengers has made this summer more lop-sided than ever, and with two more colossal superhero films coming in July The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises the season could end up with three towering tent-poles and a whole lot of tadpoles down below. I dont know that Ive ever seen a summer so top-heavy, said Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. I think were going to have Avengers, Dark Knight and Spider-Man being the big, big movies of summer with a lot of other movies really bringing up the rear, like way behind. They cant all be home runs, but you need solid doubles and triples, and we havent seen that many of those so far. Hollywood went on a box-office tear the first four months of this year, with revenues running as much as 20 percent ahead of 2011s on the strength of such presummer hits as The Hunger Games, Dr. Seuss the Lorax, Jump Street, Safe House and The Vow. After The Avengers opened with a record-breaking $207 million weekend domestically, the ensemble film featuring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson kept on filling theater seats while other big releases came and went with barely a ripple. Hits usually come every Friday in summer, with the schedule so crowded and the fans so stoked that new movies generally bump the previous weekends winner out of the top spot at the box office. The Avengers remained No. 1 for three-straight weekends, a rare feat in summer. The film continues to do solid business nearly two months after its release, while some movies that came later have long since vanished from most theaters. By this point in summer, Hollywood typically has two or three $200 million and $300 million hits to brag about. So far this season, The Avengers is the only one doing enough business on its own to amount to several blockbusters and highlighting the fact that studios havent had great luck interesting viewers in much else. Im never one to solely rely on the thought that its the movies, stupid, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox, which released Prometheus. But in this case, I do think its true. The movies that have come after The Avengers just havent been compelling enough. Madagascar 3 further highlighted audience disinterest in new movies, easily remaining No. 1 in its second weekend, while Sandlers Thats My Boy and Rock of Ages, whose allstar cast includes Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine ZetaJones, opened well back in the pack. E NTERTAINMENT Page B5 MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 Superhero slam C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday Of your own volition, you might choose to undertake a demanding and serious endeavor in the year ahead. Although the route may not be an easy one, youll want to travel it because the rewards will be outstanding. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Theres a strong chance you might have to deal with someone whom you feel wronged you in the past, but dont treat this as an opportunity for payback. Just be alert it doesnt happen again. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extremely selective to whom you turn for counsel if you find yourself in need of financial advice. Go only to someone who has had a lot of success in dealing with money matters. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You know how awful you felt in the past when someone treated you in a deceitful manner, so dont do anything that would cause you to be accused of this type of behavior. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Youre likely to be quite imaginative, which is all well and good, as long as you dont view lifes developments more negatively than positively. Focus only on winning. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you find yourself feeling a trifle envious or jealous of a friend, make that energy into a motivator, no matter how painful it is. Itll pay off in spades. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You could get everyone frustrated with you if you vacillate too much on an important issue and fail to take a stance. In order to command respect, be decisive. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Usually you have a great understanding of life, and allow for the frailties in others. Today, however, youre likely to be hypercritical and do nothing but find fault with everyone. Loosen up. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although its not normal, you could be far too gullible and impulsively involve yourself in something thats way over your head, motivated purely by wishful thinking. Keep your feet on the ground. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) The major reason you and your mate could end up in opposition is likely because neither one of you is able to effectively articulate your true feelings. Voice your love. Aries (March 21-April 19) When working with unfamiliar materials or tools, you had better make it a point to keep your concentration from wandering. Too many bad things could happen if you dont. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although its not normal for you, youre not beyond taking a calculated risk when you think the circumstances call for it. Just make sure what you do is well thought out in advance. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont be surprised if people emulate the example you set, especially if youre abrasive and difficult to get along with. Others usually give back what we give out, one way or another.

B6 M ONDAY, J ULY2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. William Shakespeare suggested that Henry V said, prior to the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, If it be a sin to covet honor, I am the most offending soul. At the bridge table, every player should be a most offending soul! Last week, we looked at important spot-card plays. Now we will move to honor-card situations. Even though you watch all of the cards like a hawk, your partner rarely notices when you play a four before a three. However, if you play an honor card, even your partner will see it. Let us start with defense. How should East and West card to defeat three no-trump by South? North correctly raised one no-trump to three no-trump. He knew that everyone would admire his diamonds once he tabled the dummy. West opens with the spade queen. When leading an honor against a no-trump contract, have three touching cards or two touchers and a gap of one. So, with a suit headed by the Q-J-10 or Q-J-9, lead the queen. But with Q-J-8-x or longer, it is usually right to lead your fourth-highest. Now comes the play inexperienced players find tough. East must overtake with his king to unblock the suit. South will duck, but East returns his second spade. By continuing spades, the suit becomes established and West has an entry in the diamond king.

I mean from the time I get up in the morning until he leaves for his overnight shift, hes trying to grab my breasts or squeeze my bottom. He does this whether were at a movie theater, the museum or the zoo. He does it when were walking outside, when hes driving and even if Im trying to cook. If hes not trying to grope me, hes talking about sex. He does it in public, too, and even in front of my in-laws. Its his favorite, actually his only, topic of conversation. During the time we dated and for the first three years of our marriage, George and I had normal conversations about sports, politics, movies and books, but now its only sex, sex and more sex. Frankly, I cant take much more of this. Ive tried talking to him nicely about the constant groping, Ive gotten angry, Ive tried diplomacy, and Ive redirected his hands. Ive told him bluntly how insulting it is to be grabbed while were in a restaurant and how alarming it is when he talks about sex during a concert. But it goes in one ear and out the other. When I try to steer the conversation into other areas, he always brings it back to sex. For medical reasons, my sex drive isnt what it used to be. I try to accommodate George, and we are intimate even when Im not feeling well. George is 52 and in fairly good health. He isnt on any medications, nor has he had any injuries that would account for this. Im tired of the incessant groping and sex talk. How do I deal with this before I scream? Married to an Octopus Dear Married: Get your husband to a doctor for a complete checkup, including a neurological exam. Georges fixation on sex is making it difficult for his brain to focus on anything else. If he is unable to control himself in public or in front of his own parents, it could indicate a serious medical problem. Dear Annie: Our office atmosphere is friendly and casual, and we emphasize an open door policy to encourage this. The problem is one co-worker who constantly and loudly says, Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk! It has nothing to do with humor. If someone walked in and told him the building was on fire, his response would be, Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk! He also constantly whistles, snaps his fingers, etc. Hes a nice, considerate fellow, but hes driving some of us to close our doors, and we wonder whether theres a nice way to tell him his noisiness is a huge nuisance. Are these nervous tics that can be treated? Distracted in Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Distracted: It sounds as if your co-worker may have Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder defined by multiple involuntary motor and vocal tics. We are certain hes doing the best he can to control these sounds, so please be tolerant. You can get more information through the National Tourette Syndrome Association ( website: tsa-usa.org). Dear Annie : I read the letter from Beyond Sad, who is thinking of leaving her marriage after 40 years. I know how she feels. I left my husband after 38 years. She should go for it because she will realize how happy and relieved she will be when she isnt stressing over every little thing she does. Like my ex, no matter what you do or dont do, it will never be good enough. She is making herself sick by staying in an unhappy marriage. Being with family and friends who love you is the best therapy you can have. I never believed in a million years I could be this happy. Im single, enjoying life and not worrying how to please a man who will never tell you he loves you.

Associated PressROGERS, Ark. Ai Miyazato shot a 6-under 65 to overcome a five-shot deficit and win the NW Arkansas Championship for her second LPGA Tour victory of the year and ninth overall. The Japanese star made a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to reach 12 under for the tournament, and her victory at Pinnacle Country Club was secured when Mika Miyazato missed a 15-foot birdie attempt on No. 18. Ai Miyazato had seven birdies and one bogey in the final round to finish a stroke ahead of Mika Miyazato and Azahara Munoz. Ai Miyazato also won the LOTTE Championship in Hawaii in April. Shes the third player on the LPGA Tour to win multiple events this season, joining topranked Yani Tseng, also a three-time winner, and No. 2 Stacy Lewis, and shes projected to rise from sixth to third in the world entering the U.S. Womens Open next week. Mika Miyazato had a 67, and Munoz closed with a 65. Veronica Felibert, the rookie from Venezuela who opened the day with a fourshot lead, shot a 72 to tie for fourth at 10 under. While Felibert struggled in only her fifth LPGA tournament, the Ai Miyazato opened with a 32 on the front nine and reached 12 under after her sixth birdie of the day on the par-3 15th. Ai Miyazato fell back to 11 under after her only bogey on the day at No. 17, but she used a 3-wood to reach the front fringe of the par-5 18th in two shots. After a chip to 5 feet, she calmly sank the downhill left-to-right putt to take a one-shot lead over Munoz, who had already finished her round. Mika Miyazato was also at 12 under on the back nine, but a bogey on No. 16 left her at 11 under and needing a birdie on No. 18 to tie Ai Miyazato to force a playoff. Mika Miyazato hit the fairway on the final par-5 final hole but elected to lay up. She hit her approach shot 15 feet left of the hole, but her birdie attempt just went by to the left and kept the her winless on the LPGA Tour. Felibert started the day at 11 under after only one bogey in the first two rounds. She reached 12 under twice on the front nine, but both times she quickly gave the shots back with bogeys. Her bogey at No. 9 led to a brief three-way tie with Mika Miyazato and Inbee Park, but Felibert bogeyed Nos. 12 and 13 to fall out of the lead for good. Felibert earned $93,770 for her fourth-place tie with Park, who shot a 68 on Sunday. Ai Miyazato earned $300,00 for the victory, while Munoz and Mika Miyazato each earned $159,739. Jamie Donaldson wins Irish Open PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland Jamie Donaldson of Wales won his first European Tour title by shooting a 6-under 66 to clinch a four-stroke victory at the Irish Open on Sunday. Beginning the fourth round with a one-shot lead, Donaldson birdied five of his last seven holes to shoot a fourth straight round in the 60s to total 18under 270 and end an 11-year trophy drought that covered 255 tournaments. It feels a bit surreal, to be honest, said Donaldson, who topped a strong field that included home favorites Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington. The victory, sealed with a 25foot birdie on the last hole, ended a wild week for Donaldson. He started it by making the British Open by shooting a round of 62 in qualifying Monday before parting company with his caddie of five years on Tuesday. Two days later he made his first hole in one on tour.Daley wins Senior Players Championship PITTSBURGH Flanked by major champions and pursued by big names, Joe Daley stuck to his game. Twenty years after quitting his job as a credit salesman to turn pro, Daley wasnt going to back down. Not with his first victory on the PGA or Champions tours within reach. Not even with Fred Couples, Mark Calcavecchia and Tom Lehman among those looming. Daley won the Senior Players Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, closing with a 2-under 68 for a 14-under 266 total and a two-stroke victory over Lehman at Fox Chapel. Daley outdueled final-round playing partners Calcavecchia and Couples, the defending champion. Daley entered the day tied with Calcavecchia and a shot ahead of Couples and Lehman, who won the previous major last month. I was my competition not them, Daley said. Im my own competition. Have been for years. After he won, Daley wore the same grin he had throughout much of a weekend in which he was always near the top of the leaderboard but never the center of attention. The 51-year-old Daley became slightly choked up on the 18th green after capping his victory with a 20-foot putt for his tournament-high 24th birdie. Daley shook his head disbelievingly sand said, Wow four times before four questions were asked in his media conference. The victory earned Daley full Champions Tour status for a calendar year. Daley earned $405,000, more than double the $155,537 he made in 59 PGA Tour starts spread out between 1994-2007. through the green and had to scramble to make bogey, and Woods took the outright lead for the third time all day this time for good. He made a 6-foot par putt, taking a one-shot lead to the 18th, and played it to perfection. Brendon de Jonge of Zimbabwe, who had a oneshot lead going into the final round, didnt make birdie and closed with a 77. Adam Scott went out in 31 and was briefly tied for the lead until a few bogeys on the back nine. He had to settle for a 67, which put him alone in third at 5 under. Billy Hurley, the Annapolis graduate who spent five years in the Navy, closed with a 72 and tied for fourth along with Robert Garrigus (70), Jhonattan Vegas (71) and Seung-yul Noh, who had a 73. Woods has three wins, all in a different manner. He pulled away early at Bay Hill and played efficiently for a five-shot win; he rallied from four shots behind with an incredible chip-in late in the round and won the Memorial. This was a two-man duel he hasnt experienced in America since he was on the losing end to Y.E. Yang in the 2009 PGA Championship. Woods remains at No. 4 in the world, though this win at least gives him a mathematical chance to get back to No. 1 at the final two majors of the year. One day after spectators were kept out of Congressional because of debris from the wind storm, they returned by the thousands. The marshals were back to work, collecting a half-dozen cell phones from fans who were caught taking pictures. Yes, everything was back to normal including the guy in the red shirt. There was a five-way tie for the lead at one point, though it took only nine holes to turn the final round into a two-man race. Scott, who overslept Thursday morning and made it to the tee with only minutes to spare, ran off four straight birdies late on the front nine to reach 6 under. But after making three tough par saves on the back nine, he ran out of luck. Back-to-back bogeys took him out of the game. De Jonge didnt last very long atop the leaderboard. He pulled his tee shot into the left rough on the third hole for his first bogey, and then made four bogeys in a five-hole stretch around the turn. That made him nothing more than a spectator for the duel between Woods and Van Pelt, one player with more than 70 career wins and another guy whose only official PGA Tour win came in Milwaukee, a tournament that no longer exists. On the golf course, they looked far more equal than their records indicate. Woods twice took the outright lead with 10-foot birdie putts, on the fifth and ninth holes. Van Pelt caught him both times, with a long two-putt birdie on the par-5 sixth, and a bold approach to a back left pin on the 11th to 6 feet for birdie. Woods delivered a madefor-TV shot on the 12th hole when his tee shot left and close to a tree. He couldnt follow through without hitting the tree, and he warned the gallery that the 9-iron might snap in half. Instead, the shaft glanced off the tree and bowed at impact, while the shot sailed toward the flag and settled 30 feet away. Van Pelt was efficient. He twice missed birdie putts inside 15 feet, but he kept giving himself chances. In the end, all he made were mistakes, which rarely works against Woods.B8 M ONDAY, J ULY2, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE G OLF Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: classifieds@chronicleonline.com l website: www.chronicleon line.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle Classifieds Classifieds In Print and Online All The Time637549 000BU8L 000BU8A Trades/ Skills EXP.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff Writer INVERNESSAt 8 months old, Blake Waters has places to go. He hasnt learned to crawl yet, but when hes down on the floor hell get up on his hands and knees and rock. He wants to get moving. Born prematurely at 36 1/2 weeks gestation, at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, Blakes doctors said he was the biggest preemie theyd ever seen. Even today hes chubby and dimpled and all smiles. But hes a sick little boy. Born with VSD (ventricular septal defect), Blake faces open-heart surgery today, July 2, at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. He was born with a hole on the bottom chamber of his heart, so when the blood is flowing its going the wrong direction, said Yahaira Waters, Blakes mother. Currently, Blake and his parents live in Alachua County where Blakes dad, Jefft Waters, is a firefighter and an EMT. Mrs. Waters family lives in Citrus County. According to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defect in the United States, affecting nearly 1 percent of births each year, or 40,000. VSD is the most common, although the National Institute of Health classifies the condition as rare. Rare or common, when its your baby who has it, its a major concern. Mrs. Waters said except for having gestational diabetes, her pregnancy was normal. When he was born, and the pediatrician did a routine check and heard a heart murmur, she said. Then when he went in for his first checkup, they noticed the murmur was louder, so they referred him to a cardiologist.

During a special figure-8 race of school buses at Citrus County Speedway, 3600 S. Florida Ave., a bus driven by Charles Chick Whitehead, 62, overturned about 9:50 p.m. and landed on its roof. Another bus that was part of the same race also struck Whiteheads overturned bus. However, no other injuries were reported. When Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire and Rescue personnel extricated Whitehead from the wreck, he was in the drivers seat, restrained by his safety harness. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Medical Examiners office from Leesburg responded to transport the body for autopsy. The sheriffs office is investigating the crash. The case remains open and active. Due to circumstances, there will be no coverage of this weeks race. Special to the ChronicleThis photo, take by cellphone, shows emergency personnel responding to the overturned bus Saturday night at Citrus County Speedway. The driver, Charles Chick Whitehead, died at the scene.

Blakes mother, Yahaira Waters, along with family and friends, are organizing several fundraisers to help the family pay for the impending operation. 8-month-old with hole in his heart undergoes surgery today See HEARTS/ Page A5 Taxable values drop 3.7 percent CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterThe taxable values of properties continue to sink, but at a slower pace. For these last two years, the numbers suggest a slowing in the decline in values, said Geoffrey Greene, Citrus County property appraiser, who on Friday issued the 2012 preliminary certification of taxable values to all Citrus County taxing authorities. This is supported by additional analysis of the change in real property taxable values alone, Greene said. The decline in real property was 2.7 percent less this year as compared to 2010. So the leveling off of decreasing values we started to see last year is continuing in 2012. The 2012 preliminary tax roll reflects a total NonSchool Taxable Value for Citrus County of $8.98 billion reflective of current market conditions. This represents a 3.7 percent decrease in values from 2011. The downward trend in values continues from the peak in 2007, when values reached a high of $12.38 billion. The 2012 taxable value for schools is $9.69 billion, down 3.9 percent, which is the same as last years rate of decline. As part of the certification of the preliminary tax roll process, this tax roll has also been submitted simultaneously to the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR) for review and approval, Greene said. Property appraiser releases preliminary data for county He doesnt look sick, thats the thing.Yahaira WatersBlakes mother. Fire station raises heat Nonprofits vie for ownershipCHRISVANORMER Staff WriterOld Homosassas old fire station was declared surplus property in April, but it likely will never sit vacant: At least two groups are eyeing it. Homosassa Civic Club and We Care Food Pantry are trying to impress the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) of the merits of their plans. A new possibility is if both sides agree the fire station could become a learning center. Battle lines were drawn more than three months ago at the March 27 BOCC meeting when Jim Bitter, who at that time was the president of the civic club, described a situation he said was upsetting. You start out to do something that you think is good, and you end up being just castigated from all sides, accused of things that you have no knowledge of, Bitter told the board. Bitter said he had been accused of inciting people against the food bank, which he denied. He said he found a leaflet in his front yard describing complaints about the food bank. On behalf of the civic club, Bitter had been in talks with county staff to take ownership of the fire station, which had been leased to the civic club. Then he said he found out the food pantry had applied for it, too. He said if the civic club owned the fire station, it could lease the property to the food bank. We do a tremendous amount of good down there, and, all of a sudden, we are bad people, Bitter said. I resent that. County Administrator Brad Thorpe answered that the Old Homosassa fire station had not yet been declared a surplus property, which the BOCC basically give to a nonprofit organization. All agencies have a right to ask for its use, Thorpe told the board. You will have to make a decision about the best use for that facility. The fire station was declared surplus property April 10.

This preliminary certification of taxable value establishes the basis of budget preparations and 2012 tax levy proposals by local taxing authorities. This is the first of three certifications of value required of the Property Appraisers office each year. Greene also reported on the two cities and one other smaller taxing authority within the county. Both cities of Crystal River and Inverness are seeing slightly greater declines than the county this year. Crystal River is down 4.7 percent and Inverness is down 4.2 percent, while Homosassa Special Water District experienced a decline of 2.9 percent, the lowest decline of any taxing district. The $8.98 billion taxable value reported for the county is also the base for the Citrus County Library District, Mosquito Control District, Hospital Board and Southwest Florida Water Management District. We had hoped that 2012 would be the year for turnaround, but it looks like we may have to wait for another year, Greene said. While new construction is still down this year, Greene offered some optimism. We are starting to see a leveling off in this area, as well. New construction in 2011 was $55.9 million and this year we are at $49.0 million, Greene said. There are several new projects in the works around the county at this time that gives me reason for some encouragement. Greene reminded residents that, Value refinement is a year-round process and so values are not finalized any year until the completion of the 25-day TRIM (Truth in Millage) period, which begins in mid-August. That is the time when citizens are mailed their estimates of value and proposed millage rates and taxes for the year and are provided the opportunity to challenge values. Even then, the Value Adjustment Board appeal period also can continue to affect values. Greene said he or his staff members would be open to resolve valuation questions and issues.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. The next time you climb into your car in the afternoon and the seats and the steering wheel are just slightly cooler than a fully-fired charcoal grill, think of it as a reminder that its a good time to donate blood. Summer, when school is out and families hit the road for vacations, is a time when donors are in short supply, but the need for blood is as strong as ever. If its been a while since you donated, theres no better time than now. In about the time it would take to shop for groceries for a week or knock out a crossword puzzle, a blood donor can save a life. To find a donor center or a blood drive near you, call 352527-3061. Donors must be at least 17, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health to be eligible to donate. A photo ID is also required.

DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleThird-grade students who are attending summer activities at Crystal River Primary School have been treated to a free lunch at locations around Citrus County, thanks to funds provided by the federal government to feed children breakfast and lunch to anyone younger than the age of 18. Around theCOUNTY From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterThe men accused in the Wednesday morning bank heist at Nature Coast Bank on North Suncoast Boulevard in Crystal River are facing additional charges, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Jason Williams, 42, and John Leikauskas, 37, now face charges on the alleged theft of two minivans and damage to the vehicles. The duo also face robbery charges stemming from the alleged robbery at the bank. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Williams entered the bank with a rag tied on his head and a long cloth covering his face, then allegedly demanded an undisclosed amount of money. According to the police report, no weapon was used. Once Williams had the cash, he fled the scene and jumped into a stolen white van driven by Leikauskas, the report said. Sheriffs deputies eventually found the van and Leikauskas near Jump Court in Homosassa.Williams was located a short time later at the homeless camp on White Dogwood Court, also inHomosassa. The vans were stolen from two different car dealerships and had the windows smashed and steering columns damaged during the thefts.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Accused robbers face more charges Suspects charged with vehicle theft Jason Williams John Leikauskas MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER It appears to be one of summers best kept secrets. Most weekdays, three Citrus County schools offer a free breakfast and lunch to anyone younger than 18 years old, regardless of the familys income level. The federally funded Summer Food Service Program is offered at Renaissance Center, Inverness Primary School and Crystal River Primary School through June and July. Food services director Roy Pistone said the program is growing steadily. Were getting there, he said. Each year gets a little better. We would like for more people to know about it. Breakfasts and lunches also feed children attending special camps or summer reading programs. He said the Renaissance site is averaging 77 children a day; IPS is 60 a day and CRPS has about 37 kids a day eating breakfast or lunch. Pistone said the program expands each year. The district offers breakfast and lunch for children attending YMCA programs at Whispering Pines Park and the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. And next year, Pistone said he would like to expand the program to a school in Citrus Springs. The idea is to provide a nutritional breakfast and lunch for children during the summer whose parents are working or otherwise not at home. He added the challenge most kids face is getting to the school for the meals. We dont have a lot of sidewalks, he said. For a student to get to one of our sites, its a challenge. Were trying to open strategic sites. The program ends June 20 at Crystal River Primary School, and July 27 at Renaissance Center and Inverness Primary. The end date gives the district time to prepare schools for the new school year, which begins Aug. 8.

Associated PressKEY WEST A 49-year-old grandmother and veteran endurance swimmer scuttled her quest early Sunday to become the first woman to swim unaided from Cuba to the Florida Keys, unable to close the gap on the last 26 miles of a more than 100-mile ocean odyssey. Penny Palfrey had fended off painful jellyfish stings while keeping an eye on hammerhead sharks as she attempted the crossing without a shark cage. But her support team said the tricky currents of the Florida Straits proved to be her biggest obstacle, pushing her east so she ended up losing ground just as she was achingly close to her goal, her husband Chris Palfrey said. All told, the British-born Australian athlete had been swimming nearly 41 hours since plunging into balmy waters near Havana, Cuba, on Friday to start out. She was about three-quarters of the way into her swim when she gave up the effort about midnight, just 26 miles south of Floridas Key West. Palfrey treaded water as the crew briefed her on the currents and she ultimately made the decision to end the swim. Penny has been 100 percent focused on this swim for a year, so she was quite a bit upset. There were of course some tears. She didnt know what was happening until we told her, so it took a few minutes while she took that in, her husband said during a news conference in Key West. She was hospitalized Sunday, receiving IV drips and pain medication. Painful blisters and ulcers under her tongue made it difficult to talk. Her husband said it was too early to discuss the possibility of another attempt. Her doctor said she was dehydrated and had low blood pressure, but remarked her blood work was fairly normal considering the swim. She was still strong, but 41 hours of continuous swimming ... she was physically exhausted, Chris Palfrey said. It was really only her mental focus that was keeping her going. She was going really, really well but she only had a few more hours in her. The Straits are notorious for their fickle ocean currents, including the powerful Gulf Stream. But whether she encountered problems with the Gulf Stream or a side effect of that current or some other were not immediately apparent. Palfrey had sought to become the first woman to swim from Cuba to the Keys without the aid of a shark cage. Instead she had been relying on equipment that surrounded her with an electrical field to deter the predators. Her support team consisted of more than a dozen navigators, handlers and medical personnel escorting her on the 44foot catamaran Sealuver. She said she spotted a few hammerhead sharks and her crew said they delighted in dolphin pods spotted on the ocean. After Palfrey set off Friday from Cuba, a member of her crew was tweeting to fans regularly and her webpage was updated with her location every 10 minutes or so based on data from a GPS device she wore. The daunting effort has been commonly reported as a 103-mile swim, however the GPS coordinates suggest it is more like 107 miles. She faced numerous challenges, including the prospect of physical and mental fatigue and fending off dehydration, hypothermia and potentially dangerous marine life. At the rate she had been swimming, it had been estimated the crossing would have taken more than 56 hours to complete with arrival sometime Sunday in the Keys if she had kept going. Australian Susie Maroney made the crossing in 1997 at age 22, but with a shark cage. American Diana Nyad made two unsuccessful cageless attempts last year on either side of her 62nd birthday, but had to call them off due to a debilitating asthma attack and painful Portuguese man o war stings. She has announced plans to try again this summer. Nyad tweeted, Congratulations to Penny Palfrey for her valiant efforts. We all realize what a daunting stretch of sea lies between Cuba and Florida. Strong Gulf current ends swimmers attempt Palfrey ends swim from Cuba to Fla. Associated PressBritish-Australian swimmer Penny Palfrey begins her bid to complete a record swim from Cuba to Florida, in Havana, Cuba, on Friday. Palfreys quest ended early Sunday as tricky current kept her from finishing the swim.

Food pantrySpeaking on behalf of the food pantry, Diane Toto said her group fed 2,600 people, including 850 children. I dont know why it has to get all crazy like this, Toto said. From her viewpoint, Toto said no one had ever before complained about the food pantrys distribution system during the past five years until the ownership of the fire station became an issue. Someone had complained to Toto about people waiting in line for food misbehaving by driving on yards and even one case of someone urinating in a yard. Were going to fix it. Were not going to allow this, Toto said she responded. Food is distributed twice a month and lasts for about three hours. Toto said she sent letters telling people they would be denied food if they misbehaved and encouraged people in line to keep an eye on each other. Last week, we did find somebody and we threw him out, Toto said.Rental incomeThis was not an issue about the food pantry, but about the fire house. Yes, the civic club wants it, Toto said. Why do they want it? They want to lease it to us to make money. We dont pay rent, but they are going to charge us rent, so weve been told. So now when they get the firehouse, theyre going to charge us more. I dont think thats fair and I dont think thats in the best interest of the community.Learning centerA peace offering was presented at last weeks BOCC meeting. Eleanor Macias, current president of the Homosassa Civic Club, read a letter describing the good work of the civic club for more than half a century. We are now moving forward with the next phase of our evolution, an Old Homosassa Learning Center, Macias said. This would be the function of the rehabilitated fire house. The location is in the heart of our community and adjoining the Homosassa Civic Club complex, thus making it an ideal location. The center would have a number of uses: tutoring children from Homosassa Elementary School, adult literacy training, teaching senior citizens the use of computers, low-cost pet vaccinations and safe boating classes among them. We will continue to provide our facility to governmental functions, food distribution programs and social services agencies, Macias said. Initial funding for the learning center would be $20,000 offered by Dr. Stephen Chambers, director of the Chambers Family Charitable Trust. Macias said the civic group would be willing to terminate its current lease early to prepare the premises for the start of the next school term.Local supportSpeaking in support, Homosassa resident and sculptor Kevin Jenkins said, When you come down that road in Old Homosassa and you see that elementary school, your eyes go to the left and you see what essentially now is a warehouse. My friend Dr. Steve Chambers came to me a couple of months ago and said, Kevin, I want to do something in Homosassa. What needs help down there? Jenkins said his own children benefitted from tutoring. Were going to talk to Diane Toto and see what we can work out to facilitate her distribution of food, because she needs a place to distribute food from, something thats safe, thats clean and thats airtight, Jenkins said. I think that can be facilitated somewhere on the civic club property. And then what youre going to see when you come into Old Homosassa, loud and proud, Old Homosassa Learning Center.

That began the roller-coaster ride families of heart babies experience doctor visits and hospital stays, medicine and procedures, treatments and sleepless nights filled with worry. He had a lot of breathing issues, Mrs. Waters said. Hed run out of breath and be fatigued. When hed feed, hed eat a little bit and have to stop and take a break. At 2 months, he had his first EKG and echocardiogram.Waiting gameWhen the doctors found the hole in Blakes heart, they hoped it would close on its own over time. If it didnt, they hoped he would get stronger as he got a little older and better able to endure surgery to repair the defect. Last month, the doctors said it was time. I didnt sleep the first month after we found out about his heart, because I was so afraid hed stop breathing, Mrs. Waters said. When my husband was home, I felt OK because hes a firefighter and an EMT. But when hed leave to go to work, Id worry. As with any parent of a sick child, Mrs. Waters has had a crash course in learning all about her sons condition, whats normal versus whats not, the danger signs and symptoms, when to call 911. Blake cant go to daycare or be around a lot of people. When his 10-year-old stepsister has a cold, she has to go to her mothers house. Its been an adjustment for all of us, Mrs. Waters said. When we first found out, my 14-year-old son was petrified if I asked him to watch the baby for just 10 minutes. Hed say, Mom, what if something happens and I wont know what to do? After eight months, the family isnt as jumpy, but theres always a looming what if that hovers around Blake who is oblivious to it all. He just smiles and wants to get down from his moms lap. He doesnt look sick, thats the thing, Mrs. Waters said. Every time we go to his appointments and I see all the other kids you never realize what people go through until you have to be at a place with all these other parents and the kids that, due to heart conditions, they cant even hold their heads up on their own. I look at them and, yeah, I understand that he has something bad, but its not as bad as it could be, she said.How to pay for it allRight now, as they count down the days until Blakes surgery, the family is fundraising to cover medical costs. The Waters have a $5,000 health insurance deductible and then need to pay 20 percent of the total costs. Most recently, they had a car wash and sold more than 350 chicken dinners, courtesy of Century Link and the Inverness Kiwanis Club. Also, Blake Waters has a Facebook page at www.facebook. com/fundraiserforblake. Blakes aunt, Jeanette Rodriguez, said so far the people of Citrus County have been wonderful in their support of her nephew. The car wash last Saturday was a success beyond what they had hoped for. As of Wednesday, they estimated they raised more than $2,800 from chicken dinner sales. The Inverness Kiwanis Club bought all the food, and Mike Fitzpatrick at Century Link did all the cooking, Rodriguez said. As for Blakes future, hell always be a heart patient, Mrs. Waters said. Hell always have a heart defect and he most likely wont be able to play any sports as he grows up. But they havent said there would be multiple surgeries needed, she said. Its more of a waiting game as he gets older, so well see. Hopefully, we wont have to go through this again.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JULY2, 2012 A5 000BOYY 344-3553 2232 Hwy. 44 W., Inverness (Behind New RaceTrac Service Station) www.dynabodyfitnessclub.com OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 24 hours Mon Fri.

MATTHEWLEE Associated PressWASHINGTON The much-hyped plan to end Syrias misery and guide its transition to democracy appears to have fallen flat despite the endorsement of Western powers. Russias objections gutted the most stringent conditions on a potential interim leader in Damascus. The Syrian opposition quickly dismissed the proposal as a waste of time and with no value on the ground. The U.S. and its allies insist the plan will force Syrian President Bashar Assad from power. Russia disagrees and Assad is unlikely to acquiesce. It all leaves U.N. envoy Kofi Annans efforts to end 15 months of bloodshed no better off than before. Western nations needed to win Russias backing for the plan at an international conference Saturday in Geneva, so they dropped the demand that those whose continued presence and participation would undermine the credibility of the transition and jeopardize stability and reconciliation would be excluded from the process. That was widely understood to mean Assad and much of his inner circle, and while the West insisted, Assads main allies in Moscow resisted intensely. As a result, the plan contains no criteria for excluding anyone from the transitional government and leaves its composition entirely up to the mutual consent of Assad administration and the fractured opposition. Both sides presumably have unlimited veto power over members of the interim government, which could prolong the stalemate and keep Assad in charge. U.S. and Western officials acknowledge the possibility of that scenario. But they insist the mutual consent language puts the opposition on equal footing with Assad in determining who will be part of the governing body. Annan said he could not imagine the Syrian people would choose anyone with blood on their hands to lead them. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, going further, said the plan requires Assad to leave because there is no chance he can meet the mutual consent standard. What we have done here is to strip away the fiction that he and those with blood on their hands can stay in power, she said. Yet as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov pointed out, the plan excludes no one. Nor does it give anyone without a vested interest any authority to suggest who might or might not be acceptable. Thats why Assads foes are skeptical, at the very least. The country has been destroyed and they want us then to sit with the killer? asked opposition figure Haitham Maleh. Bassma Kodmani, a Parisbased spokeswoman for the main opposition group, the Syrian National Council (SNC), said the agreement was ambiguous and lacks a mechanism or timetable for implementation. Western officials say they expect Russia and China, which have blocked U.N. action on Syria, to make the case to Assad that he needs to step down for the good of his country. They hope, as Clinton said Saturday, that Assad will see the writing on the wall and remove himself from the equation. So far, though, neither has shown any inclination to back away from defending Assad. Clinton and her Western counterparts will take the Annan plan to a meeting of the Friends of Syria group in Paris on Friday to get a broader endorsement of the deal. This, they hope, will raise the pressure on Russia and China to convince Assad of the need to get the transition started. Should that fail and the process remain stalled, they intended to return to the U.N. Security Council for a resolution that would compel compliance. The SNC said nearly 800 people have been killed in violence across the country in the past week and more than 14,000 people have died in the 15-month-old uprising against Assads rule. Theres an urgent need for a solution because the conflict is threatening to spill across borders after Syria shot down a warplane from neighboring Turkey, which responded by setting up anti-aircraft guns along the frontier.Matthew Lee covers international affairs and U.S. foreign policy for The Associated Press. Early full-term babies may face later school woesLINDSEYTANNER AP Medical WriterCHICAGO Even for infants born full-term, a little more time in the womb may matter. The extra time results in more brain development, and a study suggests perhaps better scores on academic tests, too. Full-term is generally between 37 weeks and 41 weeks; newborns born before 37 weeks are called premature and are known to face increased chances for health and developmental problems. Children in the study were all fullterm, and the vast majority did fine on third-grade math and reading tests. The differences were small, but the study found more kids born at 37 or 38 weeks did poorly than did kids born even a week or two later. Researchers and other experts said the results suggest that the definition of prematurity should be reconsidered. The findings also raise questions about hastening childbirth by scheduling cesarean deliveries for convenience because women are tired of being pregnant or doctors are busy rather than for medical reasons, the researchers said. Women should at least proceed with caution before electing to have an earlier term birth, said lead author Dr. Kimberly Noble, an assistant pediatrics professor at Columbia University Medical Center. The study involved 128,000 New York City public school children and included a sizable number of kids from disadvantaged families. But the authors said similar results likely would be found in other children, too. Of the children born at 37 weeks, 2.3 percent had severely poor reading skills and 1.1 percent had at least moderate problems in math. That compares to 1.8 percent and 0.9 percent for the children born at 41 weeks. Children born at 38 weeks faced only slightly lower risks than those born at 37 weeks. Compared with 41-weekers, children born at 37 weeks faced a 33 percent increased chance of having severe reading difficulty in third grade, and a 19 percent greater chance of having moderate problems in math. These outcomes are critical and predict future academic achievement, said Naomi Breslau, a Michigan State University professor and sociologist. Her own research has linked lower IQs in 6-year-olds born weighing the same as the average birth weights at 37 and 38 weeks gestation, compared with those born heavier. The study was published online Monday in Pediatrics. The research will cause quite a stir, said Dr. Judy Aschner, a pediatrics professor and neonatology director at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. There are still a lot of babies who are being delivered more or less electively at 37 and 38 weeks, with people thinking, This is no big deal these babies are full-term. I think this is a big deal, Aschner said. She was not involved in the study. Aschner said no one is recommending trying to delay childbirth for women who go into labor at 37 weeks or 38 weeks.

Jack Jacobs can proudly and truthfully say he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his valor in Vietnam. After a recent Supreme Court ruling, anyone else is free under the First Amendment to make the same claim, whether its true or not. Some military veterans say they consider the ruling a slap in the face. For Jacobs, though, it was the right decision. He said he wore the uniform to protect peoples rights even if he doesnt agree with how they exercise those rights. There are lots of things people do that revolt me, but Im happy that I fought for this country not to give them the right to do something stupid, but for the majority of the people to do the right thing, said Jacobs, 66, who earned the Medal of Honor in 1969 for carrying several of his buddies to safety from a shelled rice field despite the shrapnel wounds in his head, the streaming blood clouding his vision. Im a free-speech guy, he said. The high court ruled 6-3 on Thursday to toss out the conviction of Xavier Alvarez, a former California politician who lied about being a decorated military veteran. He had been charged under the 2006 Stolen Valor Act, which made it a crime to lie about receiving the Medal of Honor and other prestigious military recognitions. The decision invalidated the law, as the justices ruled Alvarezs fabricated story was constitutionally protected speech. For 87-year-old Murel Winans, lies about service can cause real harm and lead people to doubt the veracity of claims made by people who actually served during wartime. He said he didnt buy the free-speech argument. You feel like you never earned it, because when you tell someone what youve done, theyll say, youre lying just like those other guys, said Winans, 87, who described himself as a fresh young hillbilly from West Virginia when he landed on Normandys Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 his 19th birthday. The law was inspired by the 1998 book Stolen Valor by B.G. Jug Burkett, a Vietnam veteran. The government had argued the law was a needed tool to protect the integrity of military medals. The ruling was issued the same day as the high courts landmark decision upholding President Barack Obamas signature health care overhaul. While much of the nation watched with rapt focus on what would become of the law that requires every American to have health insurance, many people in military communities were more focused on the ruling on the Stolen Valor Act.

Interpret dreamsI just read in the Chronicle about dreaming and this person asked, I just wonder if anybody out there had a dream book. And I want to say Perry Stone has written a book, How to Interpret Dreams and Visions.Patchwork roadI would like to ask the county commissioners if they have any plans soon of fixing Ella Street from Tompkins Street to the crossing light where it meets Turner Camp Road. Ella Street is a just a patched-up mess. They need sidewalks for the kids to walk to school on both sides of the street. Its a shame the parents have to take their children on such a patched-up road and it really needs attention soon.Editor's note:The city of Inverness is responsible for most roads within city limits. Call the Public Works department to get an up-to-date status on roads planned for improvement. Mahi-mahi?I would like to know what kind of fish mahi-mahi is. Someone told me its dolphin and I just cant believe that. Ive eaten it. I like it, but what kind of fish is it? Because if its dolphin, I cant believe theyre killing dolphins to make it mahi-mahi. And also, tilapia I would like to know what kind of fish that is. Theyre sort of foreign to me and if anybody knows, I would appreciate if you could print whatever they tell you it is because I like mahi-mahi, but I do not want to eat dolphin.Editor's note:According to Wikipedia.com, mahi-mahi is a species of dolphinfish also called dorado. It is not the same as the marine mammals known as dolphins. Tilapia is the common name for nearly 100 species of fish from the tilapiine cichlid tribe. OPINION Page A8MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 Waiting for equalityRecently there was a letter in the Chronicle, stating the Equal RightsAmendment had been passed years ago. Regretfully, I must correct thatstatement. Equal Rights Amendment: Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridgedby the United States or by any state on account of sex. Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriatelegislation, the provisions of this article. Section 3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date ofratification. These simple words comprise the entire text of the Equal Rights Amendment(ERA), affirming the equal application of the U. S. Constitution to females and males. The ERA was written in 1923 by Alice Paul, founder of the National WomansParty. She and the NWP considered the ERA to be the next necessary stepafter the 19th Amendment (affirming womens right to vote) in guaranteeingequal justice under law to all citizens. The ERA was introduced into every session of Congress between 1923 and 1972,when it was passed, and sent to the states for ratification. The sevenyeartime limit in the ERAs proposing clause was extended by Congress to June30, 1982, but at the deadline, the ERA had been ratified by 35 states,leaving it three states short of the 38 required for ratification. It hasbeen reintroduced into every Congress since that time. The ERA in Congress: 112th Session (2011-2012) On June 22, 2011, ERA ratification bills were introduced in the Senate (S.J.Res. 21) by lead sponsor Sen. Robert Menendez (DN.J.) and in the House of Representatives (H.J.Res. 69) by lead sponsor Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.). On March 8, 2011, Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) introduced H.J.Res. 47, whichwould remove the ERAs ratification deadline and make it part of theConstitution when three more states ratify. The Senate companion bill,S.J.Res. 39, was introduced on March 22, 2012, by Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-Md.). (Information from www.equal rightsamendment.org). Jean Maurer InvernessTV channelsYour June 15 edition included a reader wanting an SDTV, rather than a HDTV, in order to not have to pay for a cable box to receive television without the expense of a cable box. HDTVs have high-definition capabilities, but also pick up SDTV channels. If a person has a digital television, it will pick up channels from cable without a box. It picks up sub-channels, also. For instance, channel 16 from USF has 16-1 (standard definition) and 16-2 (high definition.) They actually broadcast about six or seven sub-channels from channel 16. For a person to tune those channels, the remote control will have a dash (-) near the numbers. For channel 32, you press 32. But there is a sub-channel, so press 32-2 and youll find another channel. With Brighthouse, without a box, I get about 50 channels. So, the reader should be told he can buy the HDTV and receive SDTV programming with it.Larry Franklin (NICET certified) Spring Hill In 2005 when their city drowned, the staff of the New Orleans TimesPicayunestayed in it longer than common sense and simple prudence would dictate. People who had lost homes, loved ones and their city itself concentrated on gathering the news and putting it out. They finally left huddled in newspaper delivery trucks, water up to the headlights, decamping to Baton Rouge, 75 miles away, where they went right back to reporting the news. Last month, the paper announced it was cutting staff and suspending daily publication, moving to a three-days-a-week schedule. We draw ever closer to the once-unthinkable day some major American city has no newspaper whatsoever. All of which lends a certain pungency to something Sarah Palin said recently at a conference of conservative activists in Las Vegas. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be, she said. According to politico, she was quoting Matt Drudge. Ordinarily, you would dismiss it as just another silly thing Sarah Palin said. There is no shortage of those. But these are hardly ordinary times for journalism. So forgive me if I am disinclined to let it go. As it happens, I spent nearly a week on the Gulf Coast in Katrinas wake. One night, I had the distinct honor of sleeping in an RV in the parking lot of the Sun Heraldin Gulfport, Miss., part of an army of journalists who had descended on the beleaguered city to help its reporters get this story told. Locals wore donated clothes and subsisted on snack food. They worked from a broken building in a broken city where the rotten-egg smell of natural gas lingered in the air and houses had been reduced to debris fields, to produce their paper. Shattered, cut off from the rest of the world, people in the BiloxiGulfport region received those jerry-rigged newspapers, those bulletins from the outside world, the way a starving man receives food. It made me very proud of what we do for a living. Every citizen can be a reporter, she said. No, neither Palin nor her acolytes are to blame for the state of daily newspaper journalism. Rather, the state of daily newspaper journalism only proves English majors should not be allowed to make business decisions. Only English majors could give their product away (i.e., online), then be surprised to see revenues decline. Palins sin and she is hardly alone in this is to consider professional reporters easily replaceable by so-called citizen journalists like Drudge. Granted, bloggers occasionally and only occasionally originate news. Still, I cant envision Matt Drudge standing his ground in a flooded city to report and inform. By contrast, my Miami Heraldcolleague, Elinor J. Brecher, was one of the reporters who rushed toward the destruction in New York City on 9/11. Another colleague, Jacqueline Charles, spends weeks at a time on the ground, reporting the devastation in Haiti. Nicholas Kristof of theNew York Timesslips into dangerous places to cover genocide and sex slavery. Carolyn Cole and Brian van der Brug of the Los Angeles Timessend back stunning images of the tragedies in Japan. And every day, thousands of their colleagues attend the council meetings, pore over the budgets, decipher the court rulings that help the rest of us understand our cities, nation and world. Will citizen reporters replace that function? Will they have the resources, the credibility, the knowledge, the training or even the desire to do so? No. And not all the arias sung by Palin and like-minded people to new media and the do-it-yourself journalism of ideological crank cases will change that. The function served by daily newspaper journalism is critical to the very maintenance of democracy. Its time we recognized that. I plead guilty to tooting my own professions horn. Somebody needs to.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. He can be reached via email at lpitts@miamiherald.com. Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.Thomas Jefferson, Jan. 16, 1787 Essentiality of journalism CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Recently, Citrus Builders Care had to temporarily suspend its operations, primarily because a lack of volunteers and a steady stream of funding for persons under 60 years of age. Since its inception in 2006, Citrus Builders Care, a nonprofit arm of the Citrus County Builders Association, has been an integral part in making life better for the low-income, elderly and disabled in the county. Their mission has been to reduce substandard housing by providing repair services to seriously deteriorated homes. The organization also manages an annual day of service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and has partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots programs, providing support for the worthwhile program. This past January, volunteers were out building access ramps, threshold ramps, wooden steps for mobile homes and various indoor and outdoor cleanups for its annual MLK Day of Service. Last May, the group organized a Citrus Builders Care day where it helped with home repairs and various other tasks such as trimming trees. The lack of volunteers is directly related to the downturn in the building industry, when many construction trade businesses were forced out of business or to leave the county to find work. That segment of the economy has still not recovered. Grants are available for persons 60 and older through the Citrus County Senior Foundation, but that does not cover the overwhelming need to assist people 60 and younger. The suspension of this program, even temporarily, is a blow to the low-income, elderly and disabled in the county who not only lack the financial wherewithal to pay for repairs, but the ability to perform even minor repairs. Small repairs such as leaks or clogged gutters can lead to thousands of dollars in major repairs if not addressed. We know the Citrus County Builders Association will do all it can to get the program up and running again; we just hope the hiatus is short. THE ISSUE:Citrus Builders Care suspends operations.OUR OPINION:We hope it will return once economy improves.

While thinking people absolutely know and understand an American president does not directly affect gas prices, he does, however, have the opportunity to affect prices across the board.FluxuatingRegarding Falling gas prices: Im one of those Republicans youre talking about and Im telling you, the president has all kinds of control over the gas prices. Why do you think the gas prices are going lower now? He thinks its going to get him votes in November. Stupidity runs rampant in this country. You people need to wake up.Election pricesThis is in rebuttal to Falling gas prices. The reason why the gas prices are dropping is because its election year for President Obama.

UnemploymentIn reference to todays paper, Thursday (June 13), Vote logically, I agree with this employer. I worked for a company (that) employs about 20 people. Usually theyre in the closet texting or on their cell phone. They are not embarrassed to tell my supervisor they have to go and apply for their food stamps or continue welfare. They choose to work (fewer) hours because of these entitlements. My employer states there is nothing she can do because of the fact they do show up for work, so they cannot get fired and they do not want to pay for unemployment. So the fact that more people are unemployed is because they choose to be unemployed.False rumorsDeed restrictions are a farce in Citrus County. There is a house on Citrus Springs Boulevard that has landscaping trailers, other trailers, two boats, cement mixers and assorted garbage all across the backyard, and nobody seems to care. If you want to do something, lets get the area cleaned up.Not all at faultThis is in response for the person (who) wrote into the Sound Off, calling the Sound Off about the Wave hello, about hes paying for the schools and the foreclosures and the food stamps and whatnot. Well, OK, I got news for this guy: Youre not the only one whos paying for this. And the people (who) arent paying for it, you know, some of them people got laid off there and surely they would love to work, but, you know, in Citrus County there aint too much to choose from. And anyway, it aint their fault that the economys in the mess its in. Blame Bush and Obama there, OK? Matching fundsIt was so helpful to hear the county administrator explaining how all the spending and expenses were grants and money from the state, but (he) did not explain why, in these times of money worries, that the spending keeps going on. And even though some of them are grants, there is still the matching funds the county has to make up. After all, it is all tax money coming either from the state or county. We still pay. Now more spending, over $1.5 million for building hangars at the Inverness Airport, and then more for Crystal River. Talk about places to save money. I could give plenty more airports, sidewalks, Port Citrus, mosquito control, SWAT teams, armored vehicles, helicopters. On and on it goes. Something has to change and the change is coming at the next elections. Waving hiWave hello response: I would love to wave to you in the morning when you go to work. And just remember, there but for the grace of God go you. Feel sorry for the people who dont have a job, who have school loans, who are on food stamps, whove lost their homes. Compassion is what we need. Ill wave. Good day.Too much controlIm listening to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. For heavens sake, people, turn the C-SPAN on and listen to this. We should not join the Foreign Relations Committee treaty. That treaty is too powerful. Its too powerful, for one, for nations to get together and keep taking control of everything. We should not join it. The United States should not join it. Come on, you legislators.Deed restrictionsIn reference to the person complaining in reference to Citrus Springs deed restrictions: Be advised you live in a community with a civic association (volunteer participation) and not an HOA homeowners association, which is mandatory and generates income to help pay the attorneys to send certified letters to homeowners many out of state and out of country for legal action, which is costly. The only money generated by the Citrus Springs Civic Association is yearly dues and architectural review, which is nonexistent in this housing crisis. Finally, deed restrictions are rules set by the developer and are not, I repeat, not, law unless also against county code. Different goalsSome politicians keep saying we really need a businessman in the White House. Well, Im not so sure. After all, companies have profit as a goal. Government has or at least should have the welfare and safety of the citizens as the goal.Snake in the grassRecently, while walking on a golf course located right next to a residential area, as walking across the grass and coming near a pile of brush, my husband heard a deadly rattling sound. He stopped immediately and a rattler crawled out. We also know of friends who go to a church that has a large swampy area that is infested with water moccasins. When walking near areas like that, be careful. If walking in the woods, I would strong advise wearing high, heavy boots. Being careful can save you a lot of grief.Standard TVsIm calling to answer the person about the flat-panel TVs. You can still buy an LG or a Sony probably at WalMart that will offer you standard-definition inputs. They are available and those two manufacturers make them. You can plug your cable right into the TV, so you dont have to worry about the high definition.Drink bansThis is in response to the Mayor Bloomberg there in New York with his bans on Big Gulps and all this other stuff. Instead of banning all these Big Gulps and these steaks and meats and all that, maybe they ought to ban Mayor Bloomberg there and the rest of his ilk.Deed mythsThe deed restrictions in Citrus Springs are nothing more than a myth. No one cares. The economics have pushed everyones home value to rock level. The sloppiness and lack of deed restrictions being enforced has caused Citrus Springs home values to go below ground level. If you dont believe me, call someone and find out what your house is not worth. Garage sales that run three days a week, every week, from the same house, are ridiculous. Those are a business.OPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JULY2, 2012 A9 SoundOFF Hot Corner:DOGHOUSES Hot Corner:COCKADOODLES No assumptionsRegarding No divine doghouses, June 19: Kettle, meet pot. In the Sound Off, you say God did not create a home for the dogs when He created them. How does she know? How do you know? In my world, it is the female (who) gives life, the male (who) takes life. So why dont you wait until the end to find out? What will you do when you find out that He is a she? Dont assume Hes a he.Outside animalsThis is in response to No divine doghouses. I know God did not create doghouses when He created dogs, because He did not create people houses when He created people. I would never leave my dogs out in the 90-degree heat with no water. They always have water and they have shelter and they dont want to come in. They like it out there. Theyre chicken dogs; theyre yard dogs. I take very good care of my dogs and they would never die from the heat, because they do have places to go. And I am the lady who wrote about dogs should be in the yard to take care of the chickens. And to the person who wrote I should stay in my yard to take care of the chickens: When my dog pays my mortgage, I will stay in the yard to take care of the chickens. Wrong worriesIn response to No divine doghouses: Id just like to say I really wonder about people like you, why youre so worried about dogs being out in the 90-degree heat when youre not even taking into consideration how many hundreds and hundreds of children live here in Homosassa, Crystal River, Citrus County, (who) dont have a home. These are human beings out there in the heat. Quit worrying about the dogs and worry about the people. God loves the people. Share recipe?I was pretty shocked to find out that Cockadoodles had closed. I have been there almost weekly for several years, getting their wonderful wheat bread. Im wondering if somewhere still carries that wheat bread or if they would share the recipe to it since the restaurant is no longer in business. Brooksville shopIn regard to Cockadoodledo: The rooster still crows in Brooksville. Same great help and delicious food. You might want to try it.Business manWow, the closing of Cockadoodles made news headlines. Must have been a quiet week.

Student attacked by chimp improvesJOHANNESBURG Doctors are reporting improvement in the condition of an American graduate student attacked by chimps he was studying in South Africa. In a statement, Mediclinic Nelspruit said Andrew F. Oberle, who had been in critical condition since Thursdays attack, was stable enough Sunday for doctors to bring him into the operating room to clean and stitch his multiple bites and attend to fractures and other injuries. Oberle remains in intensive care, but is no longer in critical condition. Two chimpanzees at the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden in eastern South Africa pulled Oberle under a fence into their enclosure. Oberle, 26, is studying anthropology at the University of Texas at San Antonio. He was on his second study visit to the sanctuary for abused and orphaned chimpanzees. Associated PressA man casts one of his ballots at a polling station Sunday in Atlacomulco, Mexico. Mexicos more than 79 million voters headed to the polls to elect a president, who serves one six-year term, as well as 500 congressional deputies and 128 senators. Associated PressResidents of the Cleveland Park neighborhood of Washington navigate underneath a downed tree Sunday.

Voting Landing Associated PressA Russian Soyuz TMA-03M space capsule lands Sunday about 150 kilometers southeast of the Kazakh town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan. The Soyuz capsule, which carried U.S. astronaut Donald Pettit, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko, and Netherlands astronaut Andre Kuipers, returned to Earth on Sunday after a half-year stint on the international space station, with a landing on the Kazakh steppe. From wire reports World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressNEW YORK Who knew the calendar could cause so much vacation heartburn? For the first time in five years, Independence Day falls on a Wednesday, leaving travelers unsure when to celebrate and worrying those who make a living off tourists. The midweek holiday seems to have travelers confused, said Anthony Del Gaudio, vice president of hotel sales for Loews Hotels, which isnt seeing the normal July 4 spike in bookings. Those who sell vacations say this years calendar gives Americans more options: Tack on Saturday through Tuesday or Thursday through Sunday to the holiday, or just take the entire week off. But consumers confidence has been waning. Now, some arent happy about having to burn an extra vacation day or two to get that long weekend. From 2008 through 2011, the work holiday fell on either Friday or Monday, so employees and their families got an automatic three-day weekend, similar to Memorial Day and Labor Day. Its irritating because everybody wants those three-, four-day holiday weekends, said Tom Donohue, who runs an HIV awareness program based in Charlottesville, Va. In recent years, hes traveled to see family in Pennsylvania, including his father whose birthday is on July 2. Theres swimming and boating on the Susquehanna River and of course fireworks. Not this year. Donohue plans to stay local, savings those days off for an actual vacation, a Caribbean cruise in October. Others are determined to have their summer holiday no matter what. Alicia Hutton, her husband and their two daughters are flying from Boston to Baltimore to see family. The parents had to take two extra days off from their jobs to make the Wednesday-Saturday trip work. Its not ideal because normally we would tack on one day to a long weekend, Hutton said. AAA, one of the nations largest travel agencies, projects 42.3 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home between July 3 and July 8. Thats roughly the same amount that traveled in 2007, the last time July Fourth fell on a Wednesday. Last year, when the holiday fell on a Monday, 40.3 million people traveled. Midweek July 4 causes mess for travelers Hotel officials say they are not seeing average bookings spike Associated PressPat Burns, of San Diego, prepares her luggage for check-in June 29 at Miami International Airport in Miami. Burns, after an overnight stay in Miami, is traveling to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador for the Fourth of July holiday. Associated PressFRANCONIA, Va. A day after seeking refuge at shopping malls and movie theaters, hoping the lights would be back on when they returned, 3 million residents faced a grim reality Sunday: stifling homes, spoiled food and a looming commute filled with knocked-out stoplights. Two days after storms tore across the eastern U.S., power outages were forcing people to get creative to stay cool in dangerously hot weather. Temperatures approached 100 degrees in many storm-stricken areas, and utility officials said the power will likely be out for several more days. If we dont get power tonight, well have to throw everything away, Susan Fritz, a mother of three, said grimly of her refrigerator and freezer. Fritz came to a library in Bethesda, Md., so her son could do school work. She charged her phone and iPad at her local gym. On Sunday night, federal and state officials in the mid-Atlantic region gave many workers the option of staying home Monday to ease congestion on the roads. Federal agencies will be open in Washington, but non-emergency employees have the option of taking leave or working from home. Marylands governor also gave state workers wide leeway for staying out of the office. The storm was blamed for 14 deaths, most from trees falling on homes and cars. Meanwhile, Coast Guard officials say they have suspended the search for a man who went missing early Saturday while boating during the storm off Maryland. The bulk of the damage was in West Virginia, Washington and the capitals Virginia and Maryland suburbs. At least six of the dead were killed in Virginia, including a 90-year-old woman asleep in her bed when a tree slammed into her home. Two young cousins in New Jersey were killed when a tree fell on their tent while camping. Two were killed in Maryland, one in Ohio, one in Kentucky and one in Washington. From Atlanta to Baltimore, temperatures approached or exceeded triple digits. Atlanta set a record with a high of 105 degrees, while the temperature hit 99 at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport just outside the nations capital. Associated PressCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Melted bowling balls in the front yard were among the strange sights that met C.J. Moore upon her return Sunday to her two-story home, now reduced to ashes by the worst wildfire in Colorado history. You wouldnt think bowling balls would melt, she told The Associated Press by phone from the scene in her Mountain Shadows neighborhood, where she was among residents who were allowed temporary visits to areas most affected by the fire. More than a week after it sparked June 23, the Waldo Canyon fire was still being attacked by some 1,500 personnel. But crews working grueling shifts through the hot weekend made progress against the 26-square-mile fire. So far, the blaze, now 45 percent contained, has damaged or destroyed nearly 350 homes. It was just one of several still burning in the West, where parched conditions and searing heat contributed to the woes facing crews on hundreds of square miles across Utah, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. In Colorado Springs, a line of cars a mile long queued up at a middle school checkpoint, where police checked the identification of returning residents.

Team spokesman Joel Glass confirmed a meeting between Hennigan and Howard, but declined to discuss any particulars from it. Howard is in California, rehabbing a lateseason back surgery. Yahoo Sports and ESPN.com have reported that Howard reissued a preseason trade request in that meeting and listed the Brooklyn Nets as his preferred destination. Hennigan said last week he wanted to keep all discussions with Howard confidential, and ownership has told him only to do what is in the best interest of the organization concerning Howard. Howard gave up the optout clause in his contract last season and is under contract in Orlando through the 2012-13 season.NHL free agency gets under wayRyan Suter and Zach Parise chose to take time to sort through offers from a slew of suitors on the first day of NHL free agency. I dont expect a quick decision, Suters agent, Neil Sheehy, wrote in an email Sunday to The Associated Press. P.A. Parenteau, meanwhile, was among the many NHL free agents to agree to deals Sunday. Parenteau, a 29-year-old forward coming off a 67point season with the New York Islanders, signed a four-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche just hours after hitting the market. Sheehy fielded countless phone calls, emails and messages from teams hoping to sign his coveted client. New Jersey attempted to re-sign Parise and Nashville tried to keep Suter before they hit the market, but the Devils and Predators ended up being relegated to competing with other offers. Parise and Suter are both 27, potentially entering the prime of their careers. Teams seeking a shortterm answer in net may make offers to 40-year-old goaltender Martin Brodeur, who, like Parise and Suter, has been with only one NHL team. The three-time Stanley Cup champion and four-time Vezina Trophy winner has played for the Devils since the 1991-92 season.US beats Brazil in softballs World CupOKLAHOMA CITY After the United States completed a perfect run through round-robin play at the World Cup of Softball, coach Ken Eriksen came up to rookie Amanda Chidester bearing gifts: a lineup card and the ball from her first international hit. And what a hit it was. Chidester belted a grand slam, Chelsea Thomas allowed two hits in a fiveinning shutout and the U.S. beat Brazil 9-0 on Sunday. It was the second straight run-rule victory for the Americans (5-0), who will play in the championship game Monday night against Australia (4-1) a 4-0 winner over the Netherlands on Sunday. Eriksen also coaches softball at the University of South Florida in Tampa. The Bulls made it to the first round of the 2012 Womens College World Series in Oklahoma City before being eliminated by Oklahoma. From wire reports Associated PressTiger Woods acknowledges the gallery on the 18th green on Sunday after winning the AT&T National tournament at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. Associated PressBETHESDA, Md. Congressional reopened its gates Sunday to thousands of spectators who got what they expected in the AT&T National another win by Tiger Woods. Only this win didnt follow a typical script. Caught in a tense duel with Bo Van Pelt on another sweltering day, it looked as though Woods blinked first until Van Pelt matched him with mistakes of his own. Woods closed with a 2-under 69 and won by two shots when Van Pelt finished with his third straight bogey and had to settle for a 71. Woods won for the third time this year, the most of anyone on the PGA Tour, and it was the 74th win of his career. That moved him past Jack Nicklaus into second place on the tour list, eight short of the record set by Sam Snead. Woods, who finished at 8-under 276, moved to the top of the PGA Tour money list and the FedEx Cup standings for the first time since September 2009. He effectively clinched the win with a 9-iron down the hill toward the peninsula green on the 18th, a shot so pure that Woods started walking and twirled the club moments after he made contact. And so ended a wild week in Washington record heat Friday, followed by a wind storm that topped dozens of trees at Congressional and forced the tournament to keep spectators out Saturday. They were back in force for the final round, and they were treated to some pretty good theater. What an incredible week, said Woods, the host of the AT&T National and a winner for the second straight time it has come to Congressional. Everybody, thank you for being patient with us. Yesterday was a silent day. I think everyone saved up for today. What an atmosphere to play in front of. There wasnt much to cheer in the final hour except for the 15th hole, when Woods holed a 20-foot birdie putt that crawled into the front of the cup, and Van Pelt matched that birdie with a 10-footer as the pressure was building. Van Pelt had him on the ropes on the par-5 16th by ripping a 345yard tee shot and having only a 6iron into the green. Woods hit a spectator in the left rough with his tee shot, laid up, and then attacked a back flag only to see the ball tumble over the green and down an 8-foot slope. Thats when Van Pelt answered with unforced errors of his own. His 6-iron was heavy and didnt quite reach the bunker, meaning he had to plant his feet in the sand and grip the wedge on the shaft. He moved it only a few yards, still in the collar of the rough, and chipped about 12 feet by the hole. Woods chip up the slope rolled 15 feet by, and he missed the putt to end his streak of 41 straight holes without a bogey. Van Pelt also missed his par putt, and they walked away from that mess still tied for the lead. On the 17th, Van Pelt caught a flier from the first cut of rough and the ball shot over the green and near the grandstand, leaving him an impossible chip. He hit Woods notches win at Congressional, nine shy of new record See WOODS/ Page B8 Associated PressNEW YORK Josh Hamilton is set to lead a Texas parade to the All-Star game. Now, fans will decide if Chipper Jones gets one final appearance or whether its time for teen sensation Bryce Harper. Hamilton drew a record total of more than 11 million votes, and the slugger was among seven Rangers chosen Sunday as All-Stars. A trio of San Francisco Giants rallied in the last week to claim spots while three Yankees also made the starting lineup. I dont think the Texas Rangers have to apologize because weve got good players, AL manager Ron Washington of Texas said. I certainly didnt pick my guys being selfish, I picked them very deserving of being AllStars, bottom line. Washington fastballer Stephen Strasburg and Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey were two of the 66 players chosen by fans, managers and big leaguers for the showcase July 10 in Kansas City. So was 20-year-old Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout, who leads the AL in hitting at .339 and drew more than 800,000 write-in votes. Few of the races for starting spots were close and there seemed to be little complaining about the fans choices. OK, sure, David Wright couldve gotten the nod over Pablo Sandoval. But there certainly will be campaigning this week when it comes to Jones and Harper after they were left off for now, anyway. The NL and AL each have one spot left, with fans voting online through Thursday to select one of five candidates in both leagues. Jones and Harper are two of the NL possibilities. At 40, Jones is a seventime All-Star and plans to retire after this season. Banged up, the Atlanta third baseman has managed to hit near .300. This being my last year, it would be fun to go. Id love to take my kids, Jones said. At 19, Harper started the season in Triple-A. The Washington outfielder has dazzled since his promotion with his bat, arm and flatout hustle. Im an old-timer, so Id probably lean toward Chipper, NL manager Tony La Russa said on the TBS selection show.

Using its big hitters and some splendid pitching, Dunnellon proved too much for Central Citrus as it cruised to a 14-2 victory. We rely on pitching and defense, Dunnellon head coach Mike Michaud said. We had one rough inning there where we gave up a couple of runs, but the kids came back. Dunnellon batted first and immediately let its intentions be known by scoring the first run off Richie Foxs double. Fox had a huge game for Dunnellon, going 4 for 4 (two doubles and a single) with a two-run homer in the third, including a game-leading six RBIs. Central Citrus demonstrated some real poise at bat in the first inning. Dylan Pollizi (3 for 3 with two singles and double, one RBI) connected as well as teammate Daniel Sayadoff. But Dunnellons LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Invernesss Madison Veronda singled and scored on a wild pitch to give the Inverness Major Softball All Stars a 2-1 seventh-inning victory over Crystal River and the Little League District 15 title Sunday at Harley Levins Field. Jessica Newberry was the winning pitcher while Crystal Rivers Alyssa Hamilton took the loss. Newberry tossed a four-hitter, struck out seven and walked no one. She also stole home for the only other Inverness run. Inverness was 3-0 in the tournament. That was a great game, said Inverness manager Jason Newberry. Either team could have won it. Both teams had great pitching. Its one difficult loss, said CrystalRiver manager Scott Hamilton. We had our chances but couldnt come up with the right hits.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Prince Fielder and Austin Jackson drove in runs to help the Detroit Tigers pull away from a sixth-inning tie and beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Sunday. Left-hander Drew Smyly (3-3) pitched five solid innings, allowing three runs and three hits to get his first win since May 25. The rookie walked one and struck out four. Five different players drove in runs for the Tigers, who beat the struggling Rays for the third time in four days. Tampa Bay, which didnt have a hit until the fifth inning, has dropped six of its last seven games.Indians 6, Orioles 2BALTIMORE Justin Masterson pitched seven innings of five-hit ball, Shelley Duncan homered and hit two doubles, and the Cleveland Indians beat the skidding Baltimore Orioles. Aaron Cunningham also homered for the Indians, who took three of four from the Orioles. Cleveland totaled 55 hits in the four games, including eight for extra bases in the finale. The Indians lost four their five previous series, including three straight on the road. Jim Thome went 0 for 4 in his Baltimore debut. Acquired Saturday in a trade with Philadelphia, the 41-year-old slugger struck out twice and grounded out twice.Yankees 4, White Sox 2NEW YORK Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after wasting a chance with the bases loaded his first time up against Gavin Floyd, and the New York Yankees again rode the long ball to a 4-2 win Sunday over the Chicago White Sox for a series split. Eric Chavez connected for a two-run drive in the second inning, helping New York raise its major league-leading total to 124 home runs.Twins 10, Royals 8MINNEAPOLIS Trevor Plouffe homered twice, Josh Willingham and Drew Butera had one each and the Minnesota Twins came back from four runs down to take a big lead, then held on to beat the Kansas City Royals 10-8 Sunday. With one run already across in the sixth, Willingham hit a three-run homer to tie the game at 5. Two batters later, Plouffe hit a solo shot for his second of the day. Butera added a three-run shot in the eighth.Angels 10, Blue Jays 6TORONTO Rookie Mike Trout hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, Mark Trumbo and Alberto Callaspo added two-run shots and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6 on Sunday. Trout led off the eighth with a blast to center against Francisco Cordero (3-5) as the Angels spoiled Torontos Canada Day party and disappointed the crowd of 34,853. One out later, Albert Pujols singled and Trumbo, named an All-Star reserve before the game, followed with a drive to left, his 20th homer this season. Trout went 2 for 4 with a walk and scored three times, raising his AL-leading average to .339.Red Sox 2, Mariners 1 (10 innings)SEATTLE David Ortiz hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 for a split of the four-game series. Ryan Kalish, pinch-hitting for Brent Lillibridge, hit a one-out double off the rightcenter field wall against Seattle reliever Brandon League in the 10th. Dustin Pedroia followed with a single to right, putting runners at the corners. Ortiz, who will be the ALs designated hitter in the All-Star game, hit a 2-0 pitch to deep right field for the go-ahead run.Athletics 3, Rangers 1ARLINGTON, Texas Yu Darvish threw a wild pitch that allowed the tiebreaking run and lost at home for the first time with the Texas Rangers, a 3-1 defeat against Oakland despite the Japanese aces 11 strikeouts in seven innings Sunday night. Brandon Moss homered for Oakland and left-hander Travis Blackley (2-2) picked off two runners while holding a Texas lineup filled with All-Stars to one run over seven innings. The fifth 10-strikeout game for Darvish (10-5) matched NL All-Star pitcher R.A. Dickey for the most in the majors this year. The 11 Ks equaled his season high.NATIONAL LEAGUEGiants 4, Reds 3SAN FRANCISCO Angel Pagan hit a game-ending double that right fielder Jay Bruce misplayed in the wind with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the San Francisco Giants a four-game series split with a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday. Buster Posey poked a pitch from Jose Arredondo (4-2) down the right-field line that bounced into the stands for a two-out double. Then Pablo Sandoval was walked intentionally to set the stage for a wild finish. The crowd let out a sigh when Bruce drifted under Pagans fly ball to right until those whipping gusts along the bay carried the ball over his head. The 42,039 from the sold-out stands at AT&T Park erupted, Pagan tossed his helmet and the Giants streamed out of the dugout in celebration.Brewers 2, Diamondbacks 1MILWAUKEE Pinch runner Carlos Gomez raced home following two throwing errors after he stole second base in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over Arizona. Gomez entered after Aramis Ramirez drew a leadoff walk from Patrick Corbin (2-4). With one out, Gomez swiped second and jumped to his feet as the throw from catcher Miguel Montero ended up in center field. Outfielder Gerardo Parra picked up the ball but threw wildly to third, allowing Gomez to score the winning run.Nationals 8, Braves 4ATLANTA Ryan Zimmerman homered and drove in four runs and Gio Gonzalez scuffled for his sixth straight road victory to help Washington beat Atlanta in 105-degree heat. Gonzalez (11-3) capped his second AllStar selection despite allowing five hits, four runs and four walks in five-plus innings. Washington, which has won four of five, took a 4-0 lead in the first off Tim Hudson (6-4).Cardinals 5, Pirates 4ST. LOUIS Allen Craig homered for the second time in three days and All-Star Yadier Molina also connected for the Cardinals. Jason Motte got the last four outs for his 17th save in 21 chances to end the Pirates four-game winning streak. Jake Westbrook (7-6) beat the Pirates for the first time in six career decisions.Cubs 3, Astros 0CHICAGO Travis Wood pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and used some nifty baserunning to set up Anthony Rizzos go-ahead single as the Chicago Cubs completed a three-game sweep of Houston. Astros star first baseman Carlos Lee said he was still undecided on whether he will accept a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was 1 for 4 with a double in the ninth. Wood (3-3) held the Astros to three hits in 7 2-3 innings. He also doubled and scored on Rizzos single in the sixth off Wandy Rodriguez (6-6). Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth for eighth save in 10 chances. He saved all three games of the series.Marlins 5, Phillies 2MIAMI Ricky Nolasco pitched seven strong innings, Hanley Ramirez hit a tworun home run, and the Miami Marlins completed a three-game sweep of struggling Philadelphia. It was the first Marlins sweep of the Phillies since August 2009 at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies have lost five straight. All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton also homered, and Omar Infante and John Buck each had RBI doubles for the Marlins, who have won four straight. Nolasco (7-6) won and Heath Bell earned his 17th save in 21 chances. Joe Blanton (7-7) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.Padres 2, Rockies 0DENVER Kip Wells tossed seven strong innings for his first win in nearly three years, Chris Denorfia and Alexi Amarista had two hits apiece and the San Diego Padres beat Colorado. Huston Street, picked for the NL AllStar team earlier in the day, pitched a perfect ninth to pick up his 12th save in as many chances. Wells (1-1) last won on Sept. 20, 2009, when he beat the Marlins as a member of the Cincinnati Reds. Drew Pomeranz (0-3) turned in an impressive outing after being recalled from Triple-A before the game. He allowed an unearned run on two hits in six innings.

Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Spain trounced Italy 4-0 in the European Championship final on Sunday, retaining its title and extending its reign as the best team in world football. Goals from David Silva and Jordi Alba in the first half gave Spain a convincing lead. Fernando Torres and fellow substitute Juan Mata added goals in the last six minutes. Italys task was tough enough with 11 players, and it became impossible with just 10 after the 64th minute. All its substitutes were used when midfielder Thiago Motta, who had only been on the pitch for seven minutes, was taken off due to injury. The victory lifted Spain to a record third straight major title, after winning Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. The hat trick of titles is an unprecedented feat for a European team, as is successfully defending the championship. Spain even allowed Italy the majority of first-half possession, yet its trademark quick passing game was lethal when required. Spain captain Iker Casillas was outstanding in keeping Italys attack at bay for his 10th consecutive clean sheet in tournament knockout matches. The victory was the most comprehensive in a European Championship final, beating West Germanys 3-0 win over the Soviet Union in 1972. It was also a perfect response to Spains critics, who said the world and European champion had become boring. Possession was kept with endless back-and-forth passes to deny opponents the ball and stifle games, not win them, the detractors said. But Spain answered by playing its best and slickest football at Euro 2012 when most was at stake. Sergio Ramos and Xavi Hernandez had already threatened Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffons goal when Spain took the lead in the 14th minute. Andres Iniestas incisive forward pass to find Cesc Fabregas was superb. Fabregas drifted behind defender Giorgio Chiellini and surged to the byline, drawing Buffon to his near post. Silva waited eight yards out to head a crisp chip back from Fabregas into the net. Spain then increased its lead just four minutes before the break. Hernandez had been below his usual high standard at Euro 2012, but he put a weighted pass into Albas stride as the left-back burst past four Italian defenders to slip his shot past Buffon. The great Italian keeper also witnessed a master class from his friend and opposite number Casillas, who was on a winning Spanish side for the 100th time. Casillas has not conceded a goal in a knockout match since Zinedine Zidane scored for France in a 3-1 win, which knocked Spain out of the 2006 World Cup in the second round. At 1-0, Casillas twice stretched to tip crossed balls to safety, as Daniele De Rossi and then Mario Balotelli seemed poised to head goalwards. Casillas also twice went low to save shots from Antonio Cassano before Albas goal put Spain into its comfort zone. Cassano was replaced at halftime by Antonio Di Natale, who has scored the only goal Spain conceded at Euro 2012 a 1-1 draw to open its Group C campaign in Gdansk, Poland. Di Natale quickly unsettled Spain, heading just over before forcing Casillas into a double save when released into space by Andrea Pirlos clever pass. However, Motta lasted just five minutes before he appeared to pull his right hamstring and left in obvious pain. Spain cruised through the second half, to cries of Ole from its fans, before inflicting further agony on Italy. When Italy surrendered the ball in its half, Xavi collected and quickly found Torres to slide his shot past Buffon and inside the far post in the 84th minute. Minutes later, Juan Mata came off the bench like Torres, and took his Chelsea teammates pass to score into an Italian goal left unguarded yet again. It was his first shot of the tournament, and Spains final goal. Spain crushes Italy 4-0 in European Championship final Associated PressPeter Sagan of Slovakia crosses the finish line Sunday to win the first stage of the Tour de France in Seraing, Belgium. Associated PressSERAING, Belgium Peter Sagan blushed, giggled and eventually brushed off comparisons to Lance Armstrong on Sunday after becoming the youngest rider to win a Tour de France stage since the Texan nearly a generation ago. The 22-year-old Slovak gave a command performance in his debut in a full Tour stage by outsprinting Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara, who mounted a spirited and successful defense of his yellow jersey over a hilly ride in eastern Belgium in Stage 1. The standings among the top contenders to win the three-week race didnt change much after the 123mile loop from Liege to suburban Seraing featuring five low-grade climbs. Bradley Wiggins of Britain and defending champion Cadel Evans trailed close behind in a splintered pack. Overall, Wiggins is second behind Cancellara, seven seconds back, and Evans is another 10 seconds slower in eighth. Sagan, who won five of eight stages in this years Tour of California among the 13 stage victories he has this year, placed his hands on his shoulders after edging out Cancellara and Norways Edvald Boasson Hagen. It was the culmination of a tricky uphill patch with cobblestones right before the finish. The promising Slovak becomes the youngest rider to capture a Tour stage since Armstrong won his first of his 22 career Tour stage victories at age 21 in Stage 8 in 1993. The youngest of all time is Italys Fabio Battesini, who was 19 when he won one in the 1931 Tour. Sagan landed another spot in the history books: No other Tour debutant has won the first Tour road stage since Fabio Baldato of Italy 17 years ago, according to Infostrada, a Dutch sports information service. David Zabriskie of the United States won the opening time-trial in his first Tour in 2005, but that wasnt a full road stage. Asked whether he has the potential to be the next Armstrong, Sagan cautioned that such talk was a bit premature: I would like to be, but Im so young its impossible to know what the future will be. He rose to 23rd place overall, 24 seconds behind Cancellara, after entering the day in 56th place 3:49 behind after the prologue that Sagan said wasnt suited to his talents. At least two crashes marred Sundays stage amid escalating tensions within the pack near the finish, where roadside crowds drew in to get a glimpse of the whirring bicycles. High-profile riders including Spains Luis Leon Sanchez and Michael Rogers of Australia went down in one late spill, but got back up. Bad luck continued to plague Germanys Tony Martin, who went down in a crash early Sunday. The world time-trial champion poppeda flat and lost time in the prologue the day before. At one point, with his team leader Evans riding in his wake, Marcus Burghardt of Germany caused his bike to jump to avoid a plastic bottle in a downhill patch about 10 miles before the finish. Mondays second stage takes the pack on a mostly flat 129-mile jaunt slicing west across Belgium from Vis to Tournai, which could favor a sprint finish. Armstrong caliber? Not just yet, says young tour de force Kayme Hickey, who pitched almost five full innings with seven strikeouts, allowed no runs. Brandon Di Rosa, who pitched three innings, and a confident Central Citrus managed to shut out Dunnellon in the top of the second. Central Citrus then took the lead in the bottom of the inning, as Pollizi doubled, batting in Donovan Willmon (1 for 2 with a double). Pollizi then capitalizedon an error and stole home, giving Central Citrus the 2-1 lead. Then in the third inning, Dunnellons Fox struck a devastating blow to Central Citrus. Fox smacked a homer over the left-field fence following Jay Fraziars double, which brought home the tying run. As Fraziars (4 for 4 with two singles, two doubles and four RBIs) and Fox crossed the plate to give Dunnellon the 4-2 lead, the wind appeared to go out of Central Citrus sails. We played our worst game in the field of the whole tournament, Central Citrus head coach Dan Sayadoff said of the loss. We just got outmatched today. Theyre a great team and they deserve to win. They completely outplayed us in all phases. We made too many errors. Dunnellon never looked back, outhitting Central Citrus 15-6. Dunnellon smoothly added more runs every inning to win the game 14-2 for the championship. Our goal is to get our top few guys on base who can really run. (And they) came through (for us) with Fox and Fraziars (hitting big) and then (we) settled back to rely on our pitchers. Michaud said.10-11 BASEBALLWest Hernando 16, Crystal River 10Despite the score, Crystal River gave West Hernando a run. Strong efforts from the plate and mound got Crystal River close to staging a comeback before West Hernando pulled away for the win. Some standouts for Crystal River included Jon Baer, 2 for 3 with two RBIs; SJ Natteal, 2 for 3 with three RBIs; Roman Newkirk chasing down several outs in center field; and Ian Nelson pitching well.10-11 BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPSInverness 10, Dunnellon 5Some standouts for Inverness included Evan Badger, 3 for 4 with two doubles and a single); clutch hitters Gavin Shepherd (two RBIs) and Elijah Lindall; and Noah Cino, who pitched a full game with eight strikeouts. Vinny Muzzuppa came away with a great catch in the top of the sixth from out in right field. Inverness dedicated its championship season to the late Dr. Shawn Kersh. Dunnellon standouts included Mark Cranfield, 2 for 3 with a double and a single, three RBIs; and Trace Corne with a fantastic catch in left field. Starting pitcher Timothy Greaves and relief pitcher Conner Neil also performed well.MAJOR BASEBALLDunnellon 7, Greater Hudson 2Standouts in Dunnellons victory included Steven Penn, two-run homer; Matthew Webb, double with two RBIs; and Trevor Vonseggern, who closed the game by keeping Greater Hudson quiet.JUNIOR BASEBALLDunnellon 13, Shady Hills 5Clinton Lee hit well for Dunnellon with two doubles and two singles.

Coverage of that event can be found at right. Additionally, coverage of the 5K Citrus Summer Showdown published Sunday was from 2006. The 2012 race is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, July 14. The Chronicle regrets the errors. LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Bob Brockett didnt train for a washing machine. The 57-year-old Lecanto resident found himself there when he swam in the Crystal River Fourth of July Triathlon Saturday at Fort Island Gulf Beach. Brockett, one of the original founders of the triathlon, finished 19th with a time of 1:09.56. I was swimming in a washing machine, Brockett said. The swim added 30 seconds to my team. The conditions were wonderful. Brockett was one of 265 participants in the popular triathlon. The race featured a former two-time world triathlon champion who ended up finishing third. The winner started in the second wave and won. If Vinnie Monseau had some physical problems during the race, he could have handled them himself. The 43-year-old Tampa resident is an emergencyroom doctor at Spring Hills Oak Hill Hospital and won the race. Former world champion Evan Evans of Palm Coast was third with a time of 1:04.18. Evans shot out to a commanding lead in the swimming and cycling legs, only to have Monseau beat him. Monseau won with a time of 1:03.32.5. I won this two years ago, Monseau said. I started in the second wave. I knew that if I could stay within three minutes of him (Evans), I would win. I didnt have to pass him to win. I love it here. Its a great experience. They do a great job here. Vincent Mahr of Orlando finished second at 1:03.36. Evans parents live in Dunnellon. The 36-year-old firefighter from Palm Coast took the early lead swimming and biking. He won the world title in 2005 and 2006. He won national titles in 2004, 2010 and 2011. It was very windy, Evans said. Tarpon Springs resident Celia Dubey was the female winner. She had a time of 1:09:01 and was 15th overall. She was the masters winner of the Memorial Day Triathlon and was a silver medalist in the Duathlon World Championships in Spain. She owns the Total Fitness Gym in Tarpon Springs and had her team compete. She also coaches triathletes. It was windy out, she said. The current was very slow. This is one of my favorite spots to race. Tampas Karina Findley took the female masters title with a time of 1:15:51. Wesley Chapel resident Justin Page was eighth overall with a time of 1:07:17.5. Race director Chris Moling was happy there was a race. (Tropical Storm) Debby is gone, Moling said. Our biggest concern was with the weather. This area (the starting area) was flooded earlier this week. Another race was canceled due to flooding. Everyone was concerned. We are all happy to be here after the storm.

Giants catcher Buster Posey, back from a devastating injury last season, was the NLs top vote-getter and beat out Philadelphias Carlos Ruiz, the leagues leading hitter. Wright and Ruiz made the NL team as reserves. Posey, Sandoval and San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera overcame late deficits to win starting spots. Giants ace Matt Cain, who pitched a perfect game in June, made the NL pitching staff. Texas will have a teamrecord three starters. Hamilton, who hit four homers in a game earlier this season and leads the majors in RBIs, will be in the outfield with Adrian Beltre at third base and Mike Napoli at catcher. Second baseman Ian Kinsler, shortstop Elvis Andrus, starter Matt Harrison and reliever Joe Nathan also made the AL roster from Texas. The two-time AL champions began the day with a major leaguebest 50 wins. Derek Jeter became a 13time All-Star shortstop and will start for the AL with Yankees teammates Robinson Cano at second base and Curtis Granderson in the outfield. Injured New York pitcher CC Sabathia was picked, too, and will attend the festivities but not play. Prince Fielder of Detroit will start at first base. He was the MVP of last years All-Star game while playing in the NL for Milwaukee. Thrilling, everytime, Fielder said. Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp edged Milwaukees Ryan Braun by 100,000 votes for the third spot in the NL outfield. Kemp, beaten out by Braun for the NL MVP award last year, is on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring and looks doubtful to play. Braun or perhaps Pittsburgh center fielder Andrew McCutchen could wind up starting in Kemps place. Dickey, at 37, made his first All-Star team. He leads the majors with 12 wins and could become just the second knuckleballer to start an All-Star game. Dutch Leonard did it in 1943, STATS LLC said. Strasburg is 9-3 with a 2.81 ERA and tops the majors in strikeouts for the NL Eastleading Nationals. Last season at this time, he was working his way back to the big leagues while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Its going to be a tremendous experience, and its a huge honor for me. Its amazing to think where I was a year ago, so its great to see all the hard work has paid off, but its not done, he said in Atlanta. Its only the halfway point of the year. Weve still got a long ways to go. The fans, players and managers combined to pick 14 first-time All-Stars in the NL, including somersaulting Cincinnati reliever Aroldis Chapman and San Diego closer Huston Street. No way. Really? Street said. There were nine firsttimers in the AL, including designated hitter Billy Butler from the host Royals. Every team gets at least one All-Star. Selected from the Tampa Bay Rays were starting pitcher David Price and closer Fernando Rodney. The AL starters: Fielder, Cano, Jeter, Beltre, Hamilton, Granderson, Napoli, Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista and Boston DH David Ortiz. The NL starters: Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto, Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla, shortstop Rafael Furcal and outfielder Carlos Beltran of St. Louis, Kemp, Sandoval, Posey and Cabrera.

DAVIDGERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Its both a bear and bull market for Hollywood. The bear is Ted, Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlanes comedy for Universal Pictures about a talking teddy bear, which opened as the No. 1 movie with $54.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. And the bulls are baring it in the Warner Bros. release Magic Mike, Channing Tatum and Steven Soderberghs malestripper tale that debuted a strong No. 2 with $39.2 million. The two new movies were backed by a deep bench, with Pixar Animations Disney fairy tale Brave holding up well at No. 3 with $34 million in its second weekend. Tyler Perrys Madeas Witness Protection, the latest from the dependable breadwinner for Lionsgate Films, opened solidly at No. 4 with $26.4 million. The four movies combined to keep Hollywood in the money compared to the same weekend last year, when Transformers: Dark of the Moon launched with $97.9 million. It was an equally big weekend overseas, where two huge franchises opened. The 20th Century Fox animated sequel Ice Age: Continental Drift opened with $78 million in 34 international markets, while Sonys The Amazing Spider-Man debuted with $50.2 million in 13 markets. Amazing Spider-Man opens domestically Tuesday for the Fourth of July weekend, while Continental Drift has its U.S. debut July 13. Domestic revenues totaled $207.7 million, up 3 percent from the same weekend in 2011, according to box-office tracker Hollywood.com. That was quite an accomplishment, considering the Fourth of July fell on Monday last year, making it a long holiday weekend. DAVIDGERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Audiences are proving far more unpredictable than the movies Hollywood has created to pack them into theaters this summer. Studios have released a familiar assortment of action tales, family flicks and star-driven comedies since the summerblockbuster season began in early May. Yet while overall business has been solid, fans have been choosier than usual, spending a fortune on one superhero sensation, kicking in for a handful of midline hits and generally bypassing everything else. Movies featuring box-office heavyweights Johnny Depp (Dark Shadows), Tom Cruise (Rock of Ages) and Adam Sandler (Thats My Boy) fell flat, as did the action spectacle Battleship. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones pulled in fair crowds for Men in Black 3, though the action comedy played to a smaller audience than its predecessors. The animated tales Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted and Brave joined the action adventures Snow White & the Huntsman and Prometheus as $100 million hits. But nearing its midpoint, a summer that looked like an easy record-breaker at the start really can be summed up in two words: The Avengers. With $600 million domestically, the Marvel Comics superhero mash-up accounts for a third of Hollywoods summer revenues, taking in more than the rest of the seasons top-five movies combined. The Avengers continues a trend in which a few big movies suck up a greater portion of moviegoers money as studios focus on their so-called tent-pole releases, franchise films that cost a fortune to make but pay off like billion-dollar jackpots when they work. But The Avengers has made this summer more lop-sided than ever, and with two more colossal superhero films coming in July The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises the season could end up with three towering tent-poles and a whole lot of tadpoles down below. I dont know that Ive ever seen a summer so top-heavy, said Paul Dergarabedian, analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. I think were going to have Avengers, Dark Knight and Spider-Man being the big, big movies of summer with a lot of other movies really bringing up the rear, like way behind. They cant all be home runs, but you need solid doubles and triples, and we havent seen that many of those so far. Hollywood went on a box-office tear the first four months of this year, with revenues running as much as 20 percent ahead of 2011s on the strength of such presummer hits as The Hunger Games, Dr. Seuss the Lorax, Jump Street, Safe House and The Vow. After The Avengers opened with a record-breaking $207 million weekend domestically, the ensemble film featuring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson kept on filling theater seats while other big releases came and went with barely a ripple. Hits usually come every Friday in summer, with the schedule so crowded and the fans so stoked that new movies generally bump the previous weekends winner out of the top spot at the box office. The Avengers remained No. 1 for three-straight weekends, a rare feat in summer. The film continues to do solid business nearly two months after its release, while some movies that came later have long since vanished from most theaters. By this point in summer, Hollywood typically has two or three $200 million and $300 million hits to brag about. So far this season, The Avengers is the only one doing enough business on its own to amount to several blockbusters and highlighting the fact that studios havent had great luck interesting viewers in much else. Im never one to solely rely on the thought that its the movies, stupid, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox, which released Prometheus. But in this case, I do think its true. The movies that have come after The Avengers just havent been compelling enough. Madagascar 3 further highlighted audience disinterest in new movies, easily remaining No. 1 in its second weekend, while Sandlers Thats My Boy and Rock of Ages, whose allstar cast includes Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine ZetaJones, opened well back in the pack.ENTERTAINMENT Page B5MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012Superhero slam CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday Of your own volition, you might choose to undertake a demanding and serious endeavor in the year ahead. Although the route may not be an easy one, youll want to travel it because the rewards will be outstanding. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Theres a strong chance you might have to deal with someone whom you feel wronged you in the past, but dont treat this as an opportunity for payback. Just be alert it doesnt happen again. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extremely selective to whom you turn for counsel if you find yourself in need of financial advice. Go only to someone who has had a lot of success in dealing with money matters. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You know how awful you felt in the past when someone treated you in a deceitful manner, so dont do anything that would cause you to be accused of this type of behavior. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Youre likely to be quite imaginative, which is all well and good, as long as you dont view lifes developments more negatively than positively. Focus only on winning. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you find yourself feeling a trifle envious or jealous of a friend, make that energy into a motivator, no matter how painful it is. Itll pay off in spades. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You could get everyone frustrated with you if you vacillate too much on an important issue and fail to take a stance. In order to command respect, be decisive. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Usually you have a great understanding of life, and allow for the frailties in others. Today, however, youre likely to be hypercritical and do nothing but find fault with everyone. Loosen up. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although its not normal, you could be far too gullible and impulsively involve yourself in something thats way over your head, motivated purely by wishful thinking. Keep your feet on the ground. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) The major reason you and your mate could end up in opposition is likely because neither one of you is able to effectively articulate your true feelings. Voice your love. Aries (March 21-April 19) When working with unfamiliar materials or tools, you had better make it a point to keep your concentration from wandering. Too many bad things could happen if you dont. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Although its not normal for you, youre not beyond taking a calculated risk when you think the circumstances call for it. Just make sure what you do is well thought out in advance. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont be surprised if people emulate the example you set, especially if youre abrasive and difficult to get along with. Others usually give back what we give out, one way or another.

B6MONDAY, JULY2, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.William Shakespeare suggested that Henry V said, prior to the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, If it be a sin to covet honor, I am the most offending soul. At the bridge table, every player should be a most offending soul! Last week, we looked at important spot-card plays. Now we will move to honor-card situations. Even though you watch all of the cards like a hawk, your partner rarely notices when you play a four before a three. However, if you play an honor card, even your partner will see it. Let us start with defense. How should East and West card to defeat three no-trump by South? North correctly raised one no-trump to three no-trump. He knew that everyone would admire his diamonds once he tabled the dummy. West opens with the spade queen. When leading an honor against a no-trump contract, have three touching cards or two touchers and a gap of one. So, with a suit headed by the Q-J-10 or Q-J-9, lead the queen. But with Q-J-8-x or longer, it is usually right to lead your fourth-highest. Now comes the play inexperienced players find tough. East must overtake with his king to unblock the suit. South will duck, but East returns his second spade. By continuing spades, the suit becomes established and West has an entry in the diamond king. If East plays the spade five at trick one, South has two winning plays: duck this trick and the next, or win this trick. In both cases, declarer crosses to the dummy in clubs and takes the diamond finesse, cruising home with at least one overtrick. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Snipers, Inc.

I mean from the time I get up in the morning until he leaves for his overnight shift, hes trying to grab my breasts or squeeze my bottom. He does this whether were at a movie theater, the museum or the zoo. He does it when were walking outside, when hes driving and even if Im trying to cook. If hes not trying to grope me, hes talking about sex. He does it in public, too, and even in front of my in-laws. Its his favorite, actually his only, topic of conversation. During the time we dated and for the first three years of our marriage, George and I had normal conversations about sports, politics, movies and books, but now its only sex, sex and more sex. Frankly, I cant take much more of this. Ive tried talking to him nicely about the constant groping, Ive gotten angry, Ive tried diplomacy, and Ive redirected his hands. Ive told him bluntly how insulting it is to be grabbed while were in a restaurant and how alarming it is when he talks about sex during a concert. But it goes in one ear and out the other. When I try to steer the conversation into other areas, he always brings it back to sex. For medical reasons, my sex drive isnt what it used to be. I try to accommodate George, and we are intimate even when Im not feeling well. George is 52 and in fairly good health. He isnt on any medications, nor has he had any injuries that would account for this. Im tired of the incessant groping and sex talk. How do I deal with this before I scream? Married to an Octopus Dear Married: Get your husband to a doctor for a complete checkup, including a neurological exam. Georges fixation on sex is making it difficult for his brain to focus on anything else. If he is unable to control himself in public or in front of his own parents, it could indicate a serious medical problem. Dear Annie: Our office atmosphere is friendly and casual, and we emphasize an open door policy to encourage this. The problem is one co-worker who constantly and loudly says, Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk! It has nothing to do with humor. If someone walked in and told him the building was on fire, his response would be, Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk! He also constantly whistles, snaps his fingers, etc. Hes a nice, considerate fellow, but hes driving some of us to close our doors, and we wonder whether theres a nice way to tell him his noisiness is a huge nuisance. Are these nervous tics that can be treated? Distracted in Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Distracted: It sounds as if your co-worker may have Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder defined by multiple involuntary motor and vocal tics. We are certain hes doing the best he can to control these sounds, so please be tolerant. You can get more information through the National Tourette Syndrome Association ( website: tsa-usa.org). Dear Annie: I read the letter from Beyond Sad, who is thinking of leaving her marriage after 40 years. I know how she feels. I left my husband after 38 years. She should go for it because she will realize how happy and relieved she will be when she isnt stressing over every little thing she does. Like my ex, no matter what you do or dont do, it will never be good enough. She is making herself sick by staying in an unhappy marriage. Being with family and friends who love you is the best therapy you can have. I never believed in a million years I could be this happy. Im single, enjoying life and not worrying how to please a man who will never tell you he loves you.

Associated PressROGERS, Ark. Ai Miyazato shot a 6-under 65 to overcome a five-shot deficit and win the NW Arkansas Championship for her second LPGA Tour victory of the year and ninth overall. The Japanese star made a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to reach 12 under for the tournament, and her victory at Pinnacle Country Club was secured when Mika Miyazato missed a 15-foot birdie attempt on No. 18. Ai Miyazato had seven birdies and one bogey in the final round to finish a stroke ahead of Mika Miyazato and Azahara Munoz. Ai Miyazato also won the LOTTE Championship in Hawaii in April. Shes the third player on the LPGA Tour to win multiple events this season, joining topranked Yani Tseng, also a three-time winner, and No. 2 Stacy Lewis, and shes projected to rise from sixth to third in the world entering the U.S. Womens Open next week. Mika Miyazato had a 67, and Munoz closed with a 65. Veronica Felibert, the rookie from Venezuela who opened the day with a fourshot lead, shot a 72 to tie for fourth at 10 under. While Felibert struggled in only her fifth LPGA tournament, the Ai Miyazato opened with a 32 on the front nine and reached 12 under after her sixth birdie of the day on the par-3 15th. Ai Miyazato fell back to 11 under after her only bogey on the day at No. 17, but she used a 3-wood to reach the front fringe of the par-5 18th in two shots. After a chip to 5 feet, she calmly sank the downhill left-to-right putt to take a one-shot lead over Munoz, who had already finished her round. Mika Miyazato was also at 12 under on the back nine, but a bogey on No. 16 left her at 11 under and needing a birdie on No. 18 to tie Ai Miyazato to force a playoff. Mika Miyazato hit the fairway on the final par-5 final hole but elected to lay up. She hit her approach shot 15 feet left of the hole, but her birdie attempt just went by to the left and kept the her winless on the LPGA Tour. Felibert started the day at 11 under after only one bogey in the first two rounds. She reached 12 under twice on the front nine, but both times she quickly gave the shots back with bogeys. Her bogey at No. 9 led to a brief three-way tie with Mika Miyazato and Inbee Park, but Felibert bogeyed Nos. 12 and 13 to fall out of the lead for good. Felibert earned $93,770 for her fourth-place tie with Park, who shot a 68 on Sunday. Ai Miyazato earned $300,00 for the victory, while Munoz and Mika Miyazato each earned $159,739.Jamie Donaldson wins Irish OpenPORTRUSH, Northern Ireland Jamie Donaldson of Wales won his first European Tour title by shooting a 6-under 66 to clinch a four-stroke victory at the Irish Open on Sunday. Beginning the fourth round with a one-shot lead, Donaldson birdied five of his last seven holes to shoot a fourth straight round in the 60s to total 18under 270 and end an 11-year trophy drought that covered 255 tournaments. It feels a bit surreal, to be honest, said Donaldson, who topped a strong field that included home favorites Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington. The victory, sealed with a 25foot birdie on the last hole, ended a wild week for Donaldson. He started it by making the British Open by shooting a round of 62 in qualifying Monday before parting company with his caddie of five years on Tuesday. Two days later he made his first hole in one on tour.Daley wins Senior Players ChampionshipPITTSBURGH Flanked by major champions and pursued by big names, Joe Daley stuck to his game. Twenty years after quitting his job as a credit salesman to turn pro, Daley wasnt going to back down. Not with his first victory on the PGA or Champions tours within reach. Not even with Fred Couples, Mark Calcavecchia and Tom Lehman among those looming. Daley won the Senior Players Championship on Sunday for his first Champions Tour title, closing with a 2-under 68 for a 14-under 266 total and a two-stroke victory over Lehman at Fox Chapel. Daley outdueled final-round playing partners Calcavecchia and Couples, the defending champion. Daley entered the day tied with Calcavecchia and a shot ahead of Couples and Lehman, who won the previous major last month. I was my competition not them, Daley said. Im my own competition. Have been for years. After he won, Daley wore the same grin he had throughout much of a weekend in which he was always near the top of the leaderboard but never the center of attention. The 51-year-old Daley became slightly choked up on the 18th green after capping his victory with a 20-foot putt for his tournament-high 24th birdie. Daley shook his head disbelievingly sand said, Wow four times before four questions were asked in his media conference. The victory earned Daley full Champions Tour status for a calendar year. Daley earned $405,000, more than double the $155,537 he made in 59 PGA Tour starts spread out between 1994-2007. through the green and had to scramble to make bogey, and Woods took the outright lead for the third time all day this time for good. He made a 6-foot par putt, taking a one-shot lead to the 18th, and played it to perfection. Brendon de Jonge of Zimbabwe, who had a oneshot lead going into the final round, didnt make birdie and closed with a 77. Adam Scott went out in 31 and was briefly tied for the lead until a few bogeys on the back nine. He had to settle for a 67, which put him alone in third at 5 under. Billy Hurley, the Annapolis graduate who spent five years in the Navy, closed with a 72 and tied for fourth along with Robert Garrigus (70), Jhonattan Vegas (71) and Seung-yul Noh, who had a 73. Woods has three wins, all in a different manner. He pulled away early at Bay Hill and played efficiently for a five-shot win; he rallied from four shots behind with an incredible chip-in late in the round and won the Memorial. This was a two-man duel he hasnt experienced in America since he was on the losing end to Y.E. Yang in the 2009 PGA Championship. Woods remains at No. 4 in the world, though this win at least gives him a mathematical chance to get back to No. 1 at the final two majors of the year. One day after spectators were kept out of Congressional because of debris from the wind storm, they returned by the thousands. The marshals were back to work, collecting a half-dozen cell phones from fans who were caught taking pictures. Yes, everything was back to normal including the guy in the red shirt. There was a five-way tie for the lead at one point, though it took only nine holes to turn the final round into a two-man race. Scott, who overslept Thursday morning and made it to the tee with only minutes to spare, ran off four straight birdies late on the front nine to reach 6 under. But after making three tough par saves on the back nine, he ran out of luck. Back-to-back bogeys took him out of the game. De Jonge didnt last very long atop the leaderboard. He pulled his tee shot into the left rough on the third hole for his first bogey, and then made four bogeys in a five-hole stretch around the turn. That made him nothing more than a spectator for the duel between Woods and Van Pelt, one player with more than 70 career wins and another guy whose only official PGA Tour win came in Milwaukee, a tournament that no longer exists. On the golf course, they looked far more equal than their records indicate. Woods twice took the outright lead with 10-foot birdie putts, on the fifth and ninth holes. Van Pelt caught him both times, with a long two-putt birdie on the par-5 sixth, and a bold approach to a back left pin on the 11th to 6 feet for birdie. Woods delivered a madefor-TV shot on the 12th hole when his tee shot left and close to a tree. He couldnt follow through without hitting the tree, and he warned the gallery that the 9-iron might snap in half. Instead, the shaft glanced off the tree and bowed at impact, while the shot sailed toward the flag and settled 30 feet away. Van Pelt was efficient. He twice missed birdie putts inside 15 feet, but he kept giving himself chances. In the end, all he made were mistakes, which rarely works against Woods.B8MONDAY, JULY2, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEGOLF Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: classifieds@chronicleonline.com l website: www.chronicleonline.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time637549 000BU8L 000BU8A Trades/ Skills EXP.
