How safe are you? Statistics show county is safer than before A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterIf Citrus County resident Stephanie Bookers personal safety index and crime data are any indication, officials claims about being the second safest county per population in the state does indeed hold water. I feel extremely safe here, said the former Clearwater resident. We have neighborhood watch where we live and we rely on each other for support. The police are always there when you need them. There may be some issues with drugs in the county, but compared to other places, this is a very safe place, Booker added. Booker and her friend Shirley Keller, who were recently at a swim activity at Bicentennial Park, said as educators in the county, they consider themselves pretty perceptive and aware of their surroundings. If you really look at the crime and safety issue objectively, we really do have it good here, Keller added. Jack Uher and his wife Renate moved here in 2001 from Indiana after looking at potential destinations in the Carolinas and other states. It just felt right here. I like to fish and be outdoors, so we purchased a home in Sugarmill Woods and have been happy since, Uher said. The sheriffs office is doing a great job and we feel safe here, he said. The sheriffs office is giving credit for the relative safety of the county to various initiatives by the agency chief among them is Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) and partnerships with the school system. When Sheriff Jeff Dawsy was asked the same question, he tossed out a few statistics: Florida is the sixth worst state for violent crimes and is surpassed only by California INSIDE JULY 30, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 358 50 CITRUS COUNTY www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A12 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Which primary election race/races are of greatest concern to you?

Emergency dispatch received a call at 1 p.m. that a 13-year-old from Sebring had gone underwater in the barge canal north of Crystal River and did not return to the surface. The body of Brent Latrell Patterson Jr. was recovered at about 3:25 p.m. by the Citrus County Sheriff s Office Dive Team, according to Gail Tierney, CCSO spokeswoman. Patterson had been swimming with another 13-yearold boy, his cousin, about 2.6 miles west of the U.S. 19 bridge that crosses the barge canal in northwest Citrus County. Tierney said Patterson had been swimming with his cousin when he began struggling in the water and went under. Patterson had been in the water about 15 minutes before dispatch received the call, according to Tierney. Patterson was part of a family group that included two adults and two youths, including the 13-year-old cousin and another boy, who were from the Ocala area in Marion County. Responding agencies included the CCSO dive team, boat, ground deputies and helicopter, the Inglis Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers and Nature Coast EMS. The body was taken to the medical examiner s office in Leesburg. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. Eyes, ears on crime DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Inverness Highlands Crime Watch Unit volunteers Helene and Edwin Graham check out a lift station in the county. The couple enjoys volunteering with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and feels the crime watch units provide a valuable service to not only the agency but to Citrus County residents. Crime Watch volunteers patrol county S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterINVERNESS Firsthand, Edwin and Helene Graham see the difference the Crime Watch units make. The couple patrols the Inverness Highlands area. Edwin has been a volunteer crime watchman for 15 years. Helene has been doing it for five years. A retired law enforcement officer from New York, Edwin said he decided to volunteer with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a way to give back to the community and help the sheriffs office. Up North, he said, there were similar programs, and he saw what an impact they made in helping reduce crime and being the extra eyes and ears for the law enforcement officers. Edwin has been in charge of the Inverness Highlands unit for the past 13 years. The responsibilities of all the volunteers who patrol are pretty easy: be observant and call in anything suspicious. I believe we provide a valuable service to the sheriffs office and the county, he said. Helene, who most spends her volunteer time at the Shirley Keller We really do have it good here. Stephanie Booker I feel extremely safe here. Kings Bay sewer plan pulls owners together C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterResidents within two areas of a special assessment district are exploring setting up an organization to deal with the county and the city of Crystal River about their concerns. We want to continue the program that was offered on Dec. 13 when I was asked to represent the property owners with staff, said Norman Hopkins, a property owner within the wastewater special assessment district formed by an interlocal agreement between Citrus County and the city of Crystal River. We want to get a seat at the table before anything else is enacted that raises more problems. A public hearing to finalize the assessment roll for the project to install a public sewer line was pulled from the agenda at the July 24 meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by an attorney for the residents, Peter Aare. The hearing was postponed to 9 a.m. Aug. 20. According to Aare, residents within the assessment area would form a formal group to address the assessment only and carry out no other functions of a homeowners association. Hopkins referred to a Dec. 13 meeting of the BOCC when he raised issues and was told he could discuss them with county staff. However, Hopkins said after Tuesdays meeting his issues raised Dec. 13 had not been addressed. The residents would form a body to discuss these issues with the county. We are trying to get to a position where property owners will be consulted and can vote, Hopkins said. The issues arise from the last of 11 phases of a project that dates back to a 1999 grant that was part of a statewide effort to reduce contamination to the groundwater by eliminating septic tanks at private residences around Kings Bay. Property owners point out that their properties are in an unincorporated area, and they have been resistant to hooking up to city sewer services. We are not against the See SEWER / Page A5 PUBLIC HEARING A special meeting to conduct a public hearing to take comment about the adoption of two resolutions related to the 2010 Citrus County/City of Crystal River Wastewater Special Assessment District Areas 112 and 113 has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Aug. 20 in Room 100 at the Citrus County Courthouse, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. One dead, one hurt in Citrus Springs One Citrus Springs man was found dead and another wounded Sunday following a domestic disturbance. Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) deputies were dispatched just after 4 p.m. Sunday to a domestic disturbance in progress at 2250 W. Summer Place in Citrus Springs. When they arrived at the residence, they found a 69-year-old man, Harold Gene Brown, dead from knife wounds, and his stepson, Michael Staton, 56, also suffering from stab wounds, according to Gail Tierney, CCSO spokeswoman. The younger man was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital for treatment. Browns wife, who is Statons biological mother, also was in the home when the disturbance occurred. The medical examiners office will transport Browns body to Leesburg for autopsy. CCSO detectives and crime scene technicians responded to the scene, and a homicide investigation is under way. CRIME RATES The percentage of reported crimes cleared by arrest (or else exceptionally cleared) by the sheriffs office in its own jurisdiction increased marginally from 30.8 percent in 2010 to 31.3 percent in 2011. In Crystal River, however, the clearance rate rose dramatically from 40.0 percent in 2010 to 48.7 percent in 2011. All of these numbers rank above Floridas statewide clearance rate of 24.2 percent. The sheriffs office reported 4,988 arrests in 2011, fewer than the 5,695 reported in 2010. Within the city limits of Crystal River, however, there were 621 arrests in 2011, up from the 587 reported in 2010. Source: Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Jeff Dawsy Citrus County sheriff.

J ESSE W ASHINGTON AP National WriterPHILADELPHIA Ask Americans how race relations have changed under their first black president and they are ready with answers. Ashley Ray, a white woman, hears more people debating racial issues. I know a lot of people who really thought we were OK as a nation, a culture, and now they understand that were not, she said. Karl Douglass, a black man, sees stereotypes easing. White people deal with me and my family differently, he said. Jose Lozano, who is Hispanic by way of Puerto Rico, believes prejudice is emerging from the shadows. Now the racism is coming out, he said. In the afterglow of Barack Obamas historic victory, most people in the United States believed that race relations would improve. Nearly four years later, has that dream come true? Americans have no shortage of thoughtful opinions, and no consensus. As the nation moves toward the multiracial future heralded by this son of an African father and white mother, the events of Obamas first term, and what people make of them, help trace the racial arc of his presidency. Shortly before the 2008 election, 56 percent of Americans surveyed by the Gallup organization said that race relations would improve if Obama were elected. One day after his victory, 70 percent said race relations would improve and only 10 percent predicted they would get worse. Just weeks after taking office, Obama said, There was justifiable pride on the part of the country that we had taken a step to move us beyond some of the searing legacies of racial discrimination. Then he joked, But that lasted about a day. Or, rather, three months. By July 2009, the black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates was arrested for yelling at a white police officer who questioned whether Gates had broken into his own home. Asked to comment, Obama said he didnt know all the facts, but Gates was a personal friend and the officer had acted stupidly. The uproar was immediate. Obama acknowledged afterward, I couldve calibrated those words differently. Ed Cattaneo, a retired computer training manager from Cape May, N.J., points to that episode as evidence of how Obama has hurt race relations. Hes made them terrible, said Cattaneo, who is white. He also sees Obama as siding against white people through actions such as his Justice Departments decision to drop voter intimidation charges against New Black Panthers and in a program to turn out the black vote called African-Americans for Obama. Larry Sharkey, also white, draws different conclusions from the past four years. Attitudes are much better, Sharkey said as he slices raw meat in a Philadelphia butcher shop. He remembers welcoming a black family that moved next door to him 20 years ago in Claymont, Del. A white neighbor advised him not to associate with the new arrivals, warning, Your property values are going to go down. That kind of thing would never happen today, Sharkey said. As Obama dealt with fallout from the Gates affair during the summer of 2009, the tea party coalesced out of opposition to Obamas stimulus and health care proposals. The vast majority of tea party members were white. A small number of them displayed racist signs or were connected to white supremacist groups, prompting the question: Are Obamas opponents motivated by dislike of the presidents policies, his race or both? As that debate grew, Obama retreated to the raceneutral stance that has been a hallmark of his career. An October 2009 Gallup poll showed a large drop in racial optimism since the election, with 41 percent of respondents saying that race relations had improved under Obama. Thirty-five percent said there was no change and 22 percent said race relations were worse. The president has discussed race in occasional speeches to groups such as the National Urban League or the National Council of La Raza, and in interviews with Hispanic and black media outlets. But he usually walks a careful line, allowing the nation to get used to the idea of a black president without doing things to make race seem a central aspect of his governance. There is a totally different psychological frame of reference that this country has never had, said William Smith, executive director of the National Center for Race Amity at Wheelock College. He cites evidence of progress from the mindset of children in his programs to new history curriculums in Deep South schools. To me, thats a quantum leap, Smith said. Douglass, a real estate agent from Columbus, Ga., said white people seem less surprised to see him with his wife and daughter in places such as an art museum or a foreign language school. I think white people deal with me and my family differently since an AfricanAmerican man is leader of the free world and a nuclear black family lives in the White House, he said. But Steven Chen, an AsianAmerican graduate student in Philadelphia, points to racial rhetoric he has heard directed toward Obama, in person and online, as proof that race relations have deteriorated. He also has observed a more visible sign of division: fewer Obama T-shirts. When he was elected, it was an American thing. People of all races wore them, said Chen. Today its a distinctly black phenomenon. Ray, a graduate school administrator from Chicago, is uncertain whether race relations have remained the same or gotten worse. Its good that people are talking about race more, she said, but I know quite a few people who are sick of those discussions and blame him for all of it. In the summer of 2010, race and politics collided again when Arizona Republicans passed an immigration law that critics said would lead to racial profiling of Hispanics. Lozano, the police sergeant, remembers that when Obama visited Arizona and met with the governor, who supported the law, she wagged an angry finger in the presidents face. That was ugly, Ive never seen anything like that, said Lozano, who also is vice president of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers. Theres no way that would have ever happened to a white president. By the fall of 2010, Republicans had triumphed in the midterm elections and made history by electing Hispanic and Indian-American governors in New Mexico, South Carolina, and Nevada. Two black Republicans also went to Congress, from South Carolina and Florida. Less than a year later, an August 2011 Gallup poll showed a further decline in racial optimism: 35 percent said race relations had improved due to Obamas election, 41 percent said no change, and 23 percent said things were worse. Around this time, some black lawmakers and pundits openly complained about the presidents refusal to specifically target any programs at high black unemployment. An interviewer from Black Entertainment Television asked Obama why not. Thats not how America works, Obama replied. Then came this Februarys killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, whose father is white and mother is from Peru. Authorities initially declined to charge Zimmerman with a crime, causing a polarizing uproar. This time, when asked about the case, Obama delivered a carefully calibrated message. He said all the facts were not known, the legal system should take its course and that if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon. The comment was factual, but it still strikes Cattaneo as a coded message to black people that Obama is on their side. A lot of people I talk to cant understand why a man whos half-white and halfblack is so anti-white. This April, in a poll by the National Journal and the University of Phoenix, 33 percent felt race relations were getting better, 23 percent said they were getting worse, and 42 percent said they were staying about the same.

Around THE STATE Everglades City Man who lost hand to gator facing charges An airboat captain whose hand was bit off by a 9-foot alligator faces charges of feeding of a gator. Collier County Jail records show 63-year-old Wallace Weatherholt was charged Friday with unlawful feeding of an alligator and later posted $1,000 bond. His next court date is Aug. 22. The arrest was first reported by the Fort Myers News-Press Weatherhold was attacked June 12 as he was giving an Indiana family a tour of the Everglades.

Weatherholts hand was found but could not be reattached. Feeding alligators is a second-degree misdemeanor.Miami Police: Three shot after man visits family Police in Miami were searching Sunday for a man accused of shooting at least three people in an apparent domestic dispute and who has said he will not surrender. The victims injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. Erin Cash, 23, was wanted on charges of attempted murder. Miami-Dade Police Detective William Moreno said the incident started when officers responded to a call at 8 a.m. from a woman who claimed she had been beaten by Cash, her childs father. Cash then fled the scene with the couples 3-year-old son and threatened to harm the mother and child, Moreno said. Cash later dropped off the boy at his mothers house unharmed. Police said Cash then drove around looking for his girlfriends brother and began firing shots once he found him. Another brother and a bystander were also shot as Cash continued shooting, police said. The car was left abandoned at the home address listed for Cash.

when it comes to cyber crimes. But the fact remains, we are still the second-safest county per populous. Only Santa Rosa County in the Panhandle is safer, he said. Dawsy believes the ILP program which the agency began implementing in 2009 and a program called STP (safeschool interagency team for prevention) are paying dividends. We are being very aggressive, innovative and creative in going after the bad guys, but we also building great relationships with the community so they can help us make things even safer, Dawsy said. He said the STP program helps identify kids who may be going through difficulties because of a tumultuous home life, open channels of communication and offer counseling when and if it is needed. He said the agencys work with Seniors vs. Crime is helping residents address problems with swindlers. Lt. Justin Ferrara said one element of ILP policy is gaining community involvement. It takes time for something like this to take hold, but I think we are getting everybody in the agency involved in it. Everyone knows their roles, and the community is being engaged and they, too, involved, Ferrara said. Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) involves the collection and analysis of information on habitual offenders and their affiliates. The method began in the U.K. back in the early 1990s, but quickly gained currency as law enforcement agencies began tackling terrorism. It has since taken root in the U.S. and Florida. Hillsborough County uses the technique and Pasco County also is experimenting with it. Most of the crimes are committed by a small portion of the community, and we identify those people and keep an eye on them, Ferrara said. He said engaging the community and counting on its vigilance should help stem most crimes of opportunity. Make it hard for the criminal. Simple things like locking your doors and windows (car or home), not leaving valuable things in plain view will go a long way in stopping some of those crimes, Ferrara said. Crime nationwide has been on the wane recently. The Federal Bureau of Investigations is reporting a decrease of 4 percent in the number of violent crimes in 2011 compared to figures from 2010. The violent crime category includes murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. In Florida, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is reporting a 41year low in crime. The number of violent crimes (murder, forcible sex offenses, robbery and aggravated assault) was down by 3.7 percent, according to the agency. Officials show a 0.2 percent decrease in the number of murders, a 0.1 percent decrease in forcible sex offenses, a 1.8 percent decrease in robberies and a 5 percent drop in aggravated assault. Nonviolent crime (burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft) in Florida increased 0.4 percent. Burglary and larceny each rose 0.7 percent. The number of motor vehicle thefts decreased by 4.4 percent.

We are against the way the assessment was structured and the burden it puts on the property owners. In October, the BOCC voted 4-1 to establish a municipal services benefits unit (MSBU) for the last phase of the sewer project and to create a special assessment district. The project cost is $4.6 million. The grant is $3.9 million. The cost to connect to the citys wastewater system is $3,425. The assessment fee has been listed at $2,310 per land parcel. By law, each property owner would have to hook up to the service within 365 days of it becoming available. Each owner would need to disconnect from the septic system and take the septic tank out of service by hiring a licensed plumber. Speaking to the Chronicle Hopkins outlined several issues about the project. For one, Hopkins said the city and the county are working from the wrong type of agreement. Residents want an interlocal boundary agreement such as drafted for the Plantation Inn, Hopkins said. We would take that and adapt it to current circumstances to preserve the right of the property owners to determine their own destiny. Another sticking point is the financing of the project. In 2002, Hopkins said, the original state grant required the county to provide a matching fund of 15 percent. The county transferred the requirement to the city. In 2004, the city took a loan to cover its matching fund. Therefore, it had 100 percent funding from the state, Hopkins said. Effectively, the liability of the city to put up a 15 percent matching fund was transferred to the property owners, Hopkins said. According to Hopkins, the loan would be no liability to the city, but the loans terms are not being transferred to the property owners. While the city has to pay back the loan to the state in installments every six monthly over 20 years it is asking for the money up front from the property owners. Further, Hopkins questioned the connection fee of $3,425 on each land parcel, whether a house was on it or not. He said the $3,425 was an arbitrary figure arrived at as a legacy figure of $2,740 that city taxpayers pay plus a 25 percent surcharge permissible when administrative and engineering costs are not separately funded. Hopkins said the surcharge should not apply in this case, because the administrative and engineering costs are included in disbursements by the state. Hopkins also maintained the city would use the assessment fees to help pay for a separate project, a connection pipeline to the Crystal River Energy Complex. That is not a permitted use of those funds, Hopkins said.

The biggest thrill, she said, is not knowing what theyre going to come across. In one particular incident, Helene said, she had been keeping an eye on a home for someone who was on vacation. The home originally had two motor homes in the yard, but one day while patrolling she noticed one of the motor homes was gone. Naturally, I called in, she said. Though it turned out a neighbor had bought the motor home and took it with permission from the homeowner, Helene said one could never be too careful. Edwin said Sgt. Chris Evan, who heads up the volunteer unit, always reminds the volunteers it is better for a deputy to be called and it turn out to be a false alarm than for volunteers to not call at all and fail to report an actual crime. Evan said the volunteers who work in all different departments of the sheriffs office are invaluable. If we didnt have those people, whos going to do it? he said. In 2011 alone, Crime Watch volunteers patrolled 378,089 miles and checked 67,231 homes, 14,572 construction sites and 32,062 county sites. So they have been busy, he said. In addition to patrolling, Evan said the Crime Watch volunteers also perform home checks for people on vacation, help look for missing persons, help hand out sex offender flyers and call in other types of concerns, like abandoned vehicles and damaged sites. Edwin also said as volunteers, they also help with special events like directing traffic at parades. It relieves the sworn dep uties from having to do it, Helene said. So we do the dirty work, she joked. While patrolling, Helene said many of the volunteers take the opportunity to educate residents about ways to reduce crime by doing simple things like locking their car doors or securing their garages so people dont walk off with expensive equipment or break into homes. They also like to focus attention to certain areas that are prone to crime. I feel like a lot of people dont know what we do and the service we provide, she said. Of his 720 volunteers, Evan said 500 of them are with the patrol unit. Many of them are retired, but the sheriffs office has volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. Some are young and aspire to a career in law enforcement, and some are clients from the Key Training Center. Nevertheless, though Evan oversees a good number of volunteers, he said there is always a need for more. Currently the biggest needs are in fingerprinting in Lecanto and community patrol on the west side of the county, especially Crystal River. For more information or to request an application form, call Evan at 352-527-3701, or email him at cevan@sheriffcitrus.org. People can also pick up an application at any of the agencys offices throughout the county. To download a volunteer application, go to www. sheriffcitrus.org and click on the Volunteers tab.

According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more.

A10 M ONDAY, J ULY30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE O PINION Letters to the EDITOR Corporate crime Recently, it was been announced that GlaxoSmithKline is to pay more than $3 billion in fines, penalties, etc. for Medicare fraud and related misconduct. This achievement makes GSK the clear champion in Medicare fraud, exceeding as it does not only our governors former continuing enterprise (HCA $1.7 billion in 2003) but even Pfizers formerly impressive $2.3 billion payment in 2009. Curiously, between HCA and Pfizer (i.e. when HCA still proudly held the record) an outfit referred to in the press as the Armenian mafia was nailed for Medicare fraud amounting to less than half HCAs amount. Some journalists, apparently forgetting HCA, temporarily gave the Armenian mafia credit for setting a record. Curiously, it was mentioned that 26 members of the latter were being held on criminal charges. But reports are silent about criminal charges, if any, for the executives responsible for vastly larger swindles. Unfortunately, the Armenian mafia does not qualify for admission to our elite, white-collar kleptocracy as being Gods Elect and Natures Noblemen. They didnt steal enough. More recently, a local employer wrote bitterly to the Chronicle about an employee who requested fewer work hours so as not to lose food-stamp eligibility. He was kind enough to mention that the employees livein girlfriend had done so as well. Apparently, modifying earnings to achieve a slight increase in living standards is contemptible. And he was a sinner to boot! Another champion of virtue called in relating that most employees spent their time on personal phone calls (presumably from broom closets.) But Ill bet both the employer and his cheering section voted to elect the godfather of HCA governor of Florida.Patrick Condray Ozello Broken branches A recent article in the Chronicle should be of great concern to all citizens of Florida. Apparently, State Rep. Scott Plakon asked Gov. Rick Scott to have the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate three Florida Supreme Court justices for using a state employee to notarize election documents. Scott was more than willing because he wants to replace them with judges who will do what he wants. This is the governor whose health care corporation which he founded was found guilty of 14 criminal charges and paid over a billion dollars in fines. The investigation was done and founded. The judges used staff that notarizes everything else for them to notarize their election forms. The judges do not have opponents. The ballot actions are just a vote of confidence not an election. The state attorney declined to file any charges because he felt the violations were trivial and not serious enough to warrant charges. These actions are probably equivalent to an employee using the office copy machine for personal business. Now an Atlanta, Ga.-based organization (the Southeastern Legal Foundation) has filed a legal action against the judges. One can only wonder what its interest in this issue is and who funds it. I feel very uneasy when the executive and legislative branches of government attempted to manipulate the Florida Supreme Court. The court is supposed to be independent from the other branches, but it appears the governor and some elements of the legislature want to stack the deck. It should also be remembered that the Florida Legislature is known nationally as being ethically challenged. Once can only wonder how many non-governmental tasks the governors staff and the legislative staff do for their elected bosses. This action stinks of dirty politics and every citizen of Florida needs to let the governor and the Legislature know to keep their hands off the Florida Supreme Court and respect the separation of the branches of government. Roger B. Krieger Beverly Hills Public wronged I am shaking my head as I read the paper (July 7) about the CEO of Citrus Memorial getting a huge retirement payout. I was shaking my head the other day when the paper reported that the CEO of Progress Energy was going to receive a huge payout. Both of these companies are and have been ill-directed, and yet the management finds it perfectly alright to pay off the head honchos who chose the incorrect path not only for the company but the people who use the facilities. There are many complaints about the hospitals handling of emergency care and funding. The hospital doesnt even have enough money to pay for all of its services and is in debt. That same situation goes for Progress Energy, with the exception that the company has been billing customers 12 percent on their bills to build a new venue in Levy County that will probably never be built. It is most certainly a concern for many folks struggling to pay their bills to read of these gross lack of concern for the public to hand over extra payouts for executives who only care about themselves and not the people who they are supposed to be serving. It is about time that big companies stopped paying off their executives and let them retire on the pensions or 401Ks they have earned like everyone else. I am still shaking my head, because I know that this is just me letting steam off and my thoughts on this issue will absolutely go nowhere. Just a lot of other folks like me feeling the same way. Just for the record, I am mad as hell and I dont want to take it anymore. Patricia Maynard Hernando No more negativity I am a Democrat. Since moving to Citrus County seven years ago, it has been something I have not broadcast freely. I listen to all the vitriol, hatred and animosity from people who have their conservative beliefs. I just dont get it. How does all this hatred fit in with believing you should treat your neighbor as yourself? Does everyone actually hate themselves as much as they do others? Im even more surprised when I find out people, who need the most help from other people, feel the same way about this president as the rich self-entitled people do. The most vocal people I know have yet to return their Social Security checks or give up getting Medicare in order to prove their point. To me its all hot air, spewed by people who are being led by their general malcontent at what is going on in their lives and need someone else to blame. It is a shame Democrats (in this county) are disappearing. Ive been involved in politics since my kids were in school. Whether its the PTA, HOA or any other organization, there are politics involved. On a grand scale like our government, the stakes and anger are much higher. Speaking only for myself, I choose not to spend my time in negativity, name-calling and selfrighteousness. Republicans are entitled to their beliefs. Dont expect me to agree with you, nor will I fight with you over it. Sheila Jacobs Lecanto Parkway vs. U.S. 19 Sorry, Chris Van Ormer, Chronicle staff writer, widening of U.S. 19 is not what we all support. In fact, I believe you will find a minority in support of it. What you will find is a split. Those who believe the (Suncoast) parkway should be extended, but abandoned because of opposition for environmental and selfish reasons; those who agree with widening it; and those who believe, notwithstanding ever increasing use, it should be left as is. Most of us who live in Homosassa and many Crystal River residents believe the parkway should be extended without delay. Please restudy it and report your findings to the citizens, the county and state. We want the parkway extension, since a significant majority of our traffic from the south is via U.S. 98, not U.S. 19, thus eliminating traffic throughout Homosassa and Crystal River. Im an environmentalist, but widening 19 is costly, short term and, I believe, provides little environmental benefits over that of extending the parkway.Frances Harbin Homosassa Editors note: The quoted material in the July 16 story was from this paragraph: An item of great concern is the widening of (U.S.) 19, which we all support, Im sure, but only to the extent it does not affect either runway, said Tom Davis, Crystal River Airports manager, speaking Thursday (July 12) to the Citrus County Aviation Advisory Board. Letters to the EDITOR Values diminishedWhen did an exaggeration of the truth become not a lie? And if it is a lie, when did it become OK for the next leader of the free world to spend millions of dollars telling that lie? Did the rules change and someone forgot to tell me about it? When they get in office, will they stop lying, or does this carry over into everything they say and do? Is it now OK for the people elected to public office to make rules and regulations that apply to you and me but not to them? Do you believe that its OK to do or say anything if it will further your cause? What has happened to the values that we used to value? Are you a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, a liberal, a conservative or are you an American? When was the last time you checked something out for yourself instead of listening to the talking heads? How many times have I heard someone say, I dont discuss politics or religion? Well, why not? There are very few things in this world that affect your life more than these two things. If you dont know enough about it to discuss it, then learn. If you cant or wont learn, please dont vote and also please dont reproduce. The minority opinion rules because it is the vocal opinion and believes that anything they can say or do to further their cause is justified. The only way that this will ever change is for the majority to put their differences aside and do what is right based on the values that our forefathers gave us in the Constitution. Did you notice I said discuss, and not argue? Any fool can argue, but a discussion is based on facts and mutual respect. Too few people even bother to vote, and if we all think its a done deal, then it is a done deal. We are sheep being led to the slaughter. If you want to soar with the eagles, you have to stop hanging out with the turkeys. W. J. (Jack) Fowler Homosassa Consent of the governed Some Americans foolishly believe the consent to govern is determined by the federal government, and independent of each other, the executive, judicial and legislative branches believe this, too. These members take an oath to support the Constitution, but do they? The Supreme Court declared the discretion of the federal agents to be sovereign over the states when they ruled on the Arizona immigration laws, effectively making the Ninth and 10th Amendments irrelevant. They forgot The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. The National Defense Authorization Act and its amendments grant enormous powers to the president. This act will deny Americans the fundamental rights enshrined in the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and 14th Amendments, and it will subvert civilian authority over the military. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg prefers the South African Constitution to the U.S. Constitution because she prefers to bequeath rights instead of protecting them, and Chief Justice John Roberts just granted enormous unconstitutional power to the federal government. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) originated in the Senate; it passed using reconciliation. Labeling it a tax bill, makes it unconstitutional. Article 1, Section 7 states: All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives The Constitution is also clear on what types of taxation can be imposed. The PPACA does not fall under any enumerated category. Additionally, PPACA, with its hundreds of power-transferring provisions, will also transfer to the executive branch departments and agencies unconstitutional powers to interpret, define, execute and legislate many of its nebulous provisions, effectively barring Congress from any further legislative actions and/or input. How can the House of Representatives approve funding if the legislation did not originate in the House, and it is not a constitutional tax? Government is out of control. We need to remind our government that it was instituted to protect our rights and our property, and That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.... Edna Mattos Hernando Influencing oil prices For the benefit of those who are naive enough to think the president of these United States can control the price of gas, should give some serious thought as to whether or not to vote in our upcoming election in November. Having been involved in the transportation of oil (crude and refined products) most of my 40-plus years of going to sea, and I might add in the capacity of chief officer in large oceangoing crude carriers gives me the knowledge and expertise to have an understanding of much of what goes on in this industry. You can rest assured that these oil companies on a worldwide scale are controlled by none other than the oil cartel, which includes the Mideast oil producers. These oil producers are very sophisticated at what they do and are for the most part in control. I will admit that the Wall Street stockbrokers do have an influence from time to time in some of the price fluctuation, but this also can and often is brought on by the actions of the oil companies. There is a story to be told and Im dreadfully sorry that a large percentage of our citizens are so ill-informed as to what goes on with the oil companies. I would urge you, American citizen, to get involved and vote, but please know who and what youre voting for. It is my opinion that our democracy is in jeopardy and is in need of not Republicans or Democrats, but Americans! Earl Herring retired member of the International Masters, Mates & Pilots Beverly Hills Release all records A number of Democrats have been in the news demanding Gov. (Mitt) Romney release more or all of his federal tax returns. Among the more notable are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. I feel it is a fair request. However, all elected members of Congress should have to release the past 12 years of their federal tax returns first and it should be required going forward as long as they are in office. So far, only 17 of the 535 members of Congress have released their tax returns. What are they hiding? These people introduce and vote on legislation that could have a positive or negative effect on their investments and or family holdings. Thus this information should be available to the voting public. Some have used this information to their personal advantage in the past. In addition to Congress releasing personal information, I feel President Obama should release information about his past that he has sealed to keep it from the public. This information should include college records and papers from Occidental, Columbia and Harvard. The information would show what classes he took, his thoughts at that time, professors that may have influenced him and how well he performed in class. Also medical records, law practice client records, Illinois state senate records and many more which he has sealed from the public. Past presidents have released their records or the news media has been able to find them. This leads to the question, what is President Obama hiding? Also, why hasnt the news media asked or been able to find this information? It leads you to think that todays reporters arent as qualified as their predecessors or they are much more biased than in the past. They may also tell us only what they what us to know. These people want all of this information about the man running for president; however, we dont know very much about the man who is currently president. Yet this doesnt bother these people even though our economy and our freedoms are going down the tubes.

Police: Naked man flees hospital, steals Jeep MAYSVILLE, Ky. Police in northeastern Kentucky said a naked man bolted from a hospital in Maysville and stole a Jeep before fleeing to Ohio where he stole some clothing. Maysville Police Sgt. Chris Neal said 34-yearold Justin Young didnt want to stay for treatment at Meadowview Regional Medical Center on Thursday, so he fled into a nearby corn field. Neal told The Ledger Independent that Young took a Jeep from a farm and drove to Ohio. Once there, Neal said, Young went into a home and took some clothing. Neal said Young left the Jeep behind at the home near Ripley, Ohio. Neal said a felony theft warrant has been issues for Young stemming from his taking the Jeep. Deputies: N.M. brother admits robbing sisterGALLUP, N.M. A New Mexico man is facing charges after sheriffs deputies said he confessed to robbing his sister. The Gallup Independent reported 25-year-old Joshua Malone was booked this week on burglary charges in connection with a break-in at the Thoreau home of Jamy Malone. According to the McKinley County Sheriffs Office, Jamy Malone told deputies someone had used a rock to break a window and steal a number of items, including a 32-inch flat-screen television, a laptop computer, two Navajo rugs, DVDs and a Navajo basket. She told deputies her brother later called her to admit that he stole the items. The brother said he sold some of the items at a truck stop. It was unclear if he had an attorney.Louisville man charged with stealing book on ethics LOUISVILLE, Ky. University of Louisville police said a Prospect man is getting a tough lesson on ethics that probably cant be found in a book. The Courier-Journal reported that campus police arrested Terry J. Davis on Wednesday and charged him with stealing a textbook called Resolving Ethical Issues from the University of Louisvilles Health Sciences Center. Police say Davis later tried to sell the book to Grays College Bookstore in Louisville. The arrest report said surveillance video cameras captured the theft and attempt to sell the book. Minn. bikini parade falls far short of recordMADISON LAKE, Minn. Only an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny number of bikini-wearers turned out to strut their stuff in a southern Minnesota town. Organizers had hoped for hundreds of women to march Saturday in what was billed as the Worlds Largest Bikini Parade. But the number of bikini-wearing women and a couple of men in bikini tops at the Paddlefish Days Parade in Madison Lake fell far short of the world record. The (Mankato, Minn.) Free Press reported Saturday the number appeared to be 39. Women were told they could wear shorts over their bikini bottoms once it was clear the record of 451 was unattainable. A majority of City Council members opposed the bikini parade. Some said it was inconsistent with the festivals family-oriented nature.Polish sea resort giving sand away for freeWARSAW, Poland Too busy for a vacation, but long for a beach? Try Poland. Authorities said the pure, light sand in the town of Leba in the countrys north is up for grabs after moving dunes in Slowinski National Park started to clog up the beach and local waterways. Leba tourism official Pawel Dabrowski said Thursday that the sand is getting into a canal leading into the towns picturesque port, and constantly needs to be dredged out at high cost. He said the sand is for free, except for a 82 zloty ($24) administrative fee for trucks. Man charged for refusing to leave N.C. jail WENTWORTH, N.C. A man whod just been released from jail in northern North Carolina was arrested again for refusing to leave the jail after authorities wouldnt give him a ride to a motel. The News & Record of Greensboro reported 37-year-old Rodney Dwayne Valentine was charged with trespassing. Valentine was released from the Rockingham County jail Saturday morning after being behind bars since May 22. The sheriffs office said he asked them to drive him to a local motel and they refused. Deputies charged Valentine with second-degree trespassing when he had refused to leave the jail by Saturday afternoon.

Page A12 MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 Those left behind The disparity between Chinas Communist Party and democracy in United States is narrowing. The impact of corporations and banks in both countries is beginning to disrupt the normal proceedings as to how a county views itself. The gap between the haves and have-nots in both countries is widening. In 2010, China experienced 127,000 demonstrations throughout the country over the widening gaps. The politburo and key leaders of the party are all rich. Those who have power within the party are known to accept bribes and kickbacks, thus allowing the corporations and banks the power to build construction sites such as low-wage factories, skyscrapers, dams, railroads and to force the peasants (have-nots) off their land without any kind of compensation. This same displacement of people in our country isnt as dramatic as what we see in China. China has a population of 1.5 billion people, most of which are peasants. Peasant is a term that applies to the agricultural poor. The United States population is 300 million. The term peasant has never been used in the United States. Although what is happening to this very low class, such as people sleeping under bridges, on park benches and in tents, and having to beg for money, puts them in a class similar to the Chinese peasant. The U.S. Congress is similar to the Chinese politburo. Our congressmen and senators allow lobbyists into the Capitol building to write their own legislation. Like the Chinese politburo, these American legislators accept bribes and kickbacks. How does an elected person who makes $174,000 a year become a millionaire? The politicians have given carte blanche to the corporations allowing them to destroy our environment and the middle class. China presently is outshining the United States, but for how long? There is no question the Chinese have-nots will rise up against their leaders. What will happen in the United States? As a nation, we will continue to decline as long as our voters live in their man caves with a refrigerator full of beer and a giant TV set on all-day football. L.M. Eastman Lecanto Drink prices In the past couple of weeks, I had the occasion to visit three restaurants I used to visit on a regular basis because each served a particular meal that I enjoyed. Two of these restaurants had been totally remodeled in the last six weeks, and all three, at lunchtime, were mostly empty. The items I enjoy at each establishment have increased in price, just as groceries have. That is to be expected. However, the cost of iced tea and soft drinks had increased more than 100 percent. I dont understand why a glass of soda or iced tea is $1.95 when a whole liter of cola is less than a dollar, and tea bags cost about 3 cents apiece. When you add 20 percent for the tip and 40 cents more in taxes, you end up paying $2.35 for a glass of tea or soda. Accordingly, my new policy when dining out is that any cost over a dollar for coffee, tea or a soft drink will be deducted from my tip. Let the business owner pay their staff a fair wage. Ellen Bass Floral City Am I my brothers keeper? Genesis 4:9 A few words about the tragedy in Aurora, Colo.: In Dark Knight Triumphant, the second chapter of a four-part Batman graphic novel, there is an incident in which a goggle-eyed, mentally disturbed young man with orange hair shoots up a movie theater. Three people are killed. That scene, published in 1986, carries a new and frightful resonance now. How could it not? The week before last in Aurora, a goggle-eyed and perhaps mentally disturbed young man with orange hair allegedly shot up a theater playing a midnight showing of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. A dozen people were killed, 58 wounded. Life imitates art imitating life. That graphic novel was a sensation far beyond the comic book shops. Rolling Stone noted its bold thematic twists. The Los Angeles Times called it a vivid psychological study. The Washington Postpraised its edgy realism. Writer and artist Frank Miller pictured an aged Batman coming out of retirement to save a Gotham City overrun by nihilistic terrorists. Batmans town had become a lawless place where the good people were cowed mute by fear. It was a new take on the ancient central conceit of the American superhero myth. Meaning the idea that we are watched over from the rooftops above by a man (or woman) with powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men and women, a capable somebody who will fight what we cannot. Look! Up in the sky! Its a bird, its a plane, its somebody who will see that the bad thing doesnt happen and that the bad people get whats coming to them, somebody who will, just when things look hopeless, save us. Lord knows we could use some saving. Could have used it at Columbine and at Virginia Tech. Could have used it in Tucson. Could have used it in Aurora. You know what happened there, of course. How a man left the theater and returned through the exit door wearing body armor. How he threw smoke grenades. How he started shooting. In a place of escapism, where people had gone to enjoy the fantasy of a man who could fight what we cannot, bedlam broke loose and chaos reigned. As, periodically, they must. In a gunbesotted nation where the right of each citizen to possess as many weapons of mass destruction as he or she wants is considered sacred and inviolable, who can expect otherwise? We are all vulnerable, always. And yet, vulnerability is not surrender. That awful night in Aurora, Jonathan Blunk, a 26-year-old Navy veteran, shielded his girlfriend from bullets with his own body. He died. Matt McQuinn, 27 and Alex Teves, 24, also shielded their girlfriends. They died, too. Stephanie Davis, 21 years old, dropped down to the floor where Allie Young, 19, was bleeding out from a bullet wound to the neck. Allie told her to run, but Stephanie wouldnt. She stayed there, applying pressure to the wound even as the gunman kept shooting. Both young women survived. In an instant, called upon to be heroes, ordinary people in an ordinary suburb became exactly that. Frank Miller wrote about a vigilante who came back to save the people. We cannot know if that inspired the man in Colorado you will not read his name here to do what police say he did or whether his inspiration came from something else equally senseless. What we can know is that in the awful moment of decision, people covered one another, took care of one another, saved one another. It is the single hopeful note from the carnage of that evening, the one example worth holding and cherishing and carrying forward from this awful time, not least because it gives the lie to that central conceit of the American superhero myth. You see, heroes dont come from above. Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL, 33132. Readers may contact him at lpitts@miamiherald.com.

No, just human CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .......................................... publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................ editor Mike Arnold .......................................... HR directorSandra Frederick ............................ managing editor Curt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Medicaid mess needs resolution M edicaid is the federalstate medical assistance program that provides access to health care for low-income families and individuals. Medicaid also assists aged and disabled people with the costs of nursing-facility care and other medical expenses. Eligibility for Medicaid is usually based on a familys or individuals income and assets. Earlier this year, the state presented Citrus County with a bill for $844,000 for what it said was the countys share of unpaid Medicaid expenses stretching back to the year 2001. That figure included a 15 percent discount from the original sum of $1.1 million. Thats a big number, but nowhere near the amounts demanded of some neighboring counties. After some pretty vigorous pushback, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), Floridas Medicaid program administrator, reviewed all the data again and recently announced new, reduced bills to the counties. The exact numbers will be issued Aug. 1, and the counties have until Sept. 1 to accept or contest them. If a county accepts the revised number, it earns a 15 percent discount, bringing the total down further. Statewide, it was revealed the counties had been overbilled by about $200 million, more than half of what AHCA originally said they owed. Citrus Countys new number dropped nearly 30 percent, to less than $608,000, and may possibly be as low as about $516,000 with the discount. Payments will actually be withholdings from the states revenue sharing over the next 36 months. While its good news that the numbers have become more manageable, its still clear the system is flawed. AHCA identified several major reasons for the changes. The largest by far, representing almost half the dollar volume, was address adjustments, or those claims for which ACHA could not verify the county of residence based on information in the system. This was also the major issue cited by counties disputing the original assessments. The counties had complained they did not have database resources to verify addresses before submitting Medicaid bills. One positive step was recently taken, allowing counties access to the residency information maintained by the Department of Children and Families, which acts as ACHAs agent by enrolling people in Medicaid. With this resource, county officials can eliminate duplications and errors at the front end of the process. The entire episode demonstrates that its better to do things right the first time. Especially with a severely strained budget, the state cannot tolerate this kind of sloppiness and waste from state agencies. While Citrus County devoted the time of two employees to the investigative process, some other counties had to hire outside help to sort through the morass of records for the past 10-plus years. Theres no such thing as a good excuse for such poor performance. THE ISSUE: State review of disputed Medicaid bill lowers cost to county.OUR OPINION: Welcome news, but the system still neeeds fixing.

We have the same problem, but its not from cats. Its from a neighbors dog, except he doesnt dig up flowerbeds. He cant stand walking in wet grass, so if it has rained, he goes over onto the neighbors sidewalks and driveways and does it there. You try to walk down your sidewalk and have to watch every step you take, to avoid stepping in his poop. Our neighbor admits its his, but says that its not even as large as a golf ball, so why should it bother anybody? Well, just try walking out there in the dark with a pair of thong shoes on and see if it bothers anybody. But she doesnt care. We used to throw it away, but now we just throw it over into her flowerbeds to fertilize her plants. She has no consideration for other people.Make it illegal Someone had written in a woman at a convenience gas station store purchased $40 worth of lottery tickets and a bunch of other food staples, milk and something else, and paid for them with food stamps and EBT card. That is obviously so foolish. Anybody thats receiving food stamps ought to be kept from buying lottery tickets. They ought to pass a rule or something that says if you are on food stamps or on welfare, youre not allowed. All the stores and agencies should not be allowed to give them or sell them lottery tickets. And if they do and they win, then that ought to be taken away from them.

Balloonrise Associated Press Hot air balloonists compete Sunday in the Great Texas Balloon Race and the U.S. National Hot Air Balloon Championship at the East Texas Regional Airport in Longview, Texas. Panetta to Mideast; Syria high on agenda U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta began a fiveday Mideast trip Sunday to consult with the new Islamist leaders of Tunisia and Egypt and to meet with longstanding allies Israel and Jordan. High on the agenda at each stop is expected to be the accelerating crisis in Syria, which potentially has grave implications for Israel. The Jewish state fears the unrest will spill over the border and that the long-quiet Golan Heights, captured from Syria in 1967, will become a new Islamist front against Israel. Panettas press secretary, George Little, said the trip is intended to affirm a U.S. commitmentto stability in the Middle East and North Africa at a time the U.S. military is shifting more of its attention to Asia. In Tunis, Panetta plans to meet with his Tunisian counterpart as well as President Moncef Marzouki, whose moderate Islamist Ennahda Party had been banned under the previous government.

Vietnams Communist government is now considering whether to allow same-sex couples to marry or legally register and receive rights. I think, as far as human rights are concerned, its time for us to look at the reality, Justice Minister Ha Hung Cuong said Tuesday. The number of homosexuals has mounted to hundreds of thousands. Its not a small figure. They live together without registering marriage. They may own property. We, of course, have to handle these issues legally. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Page A14 MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressJERUSALEM Standing on Israeli soil, U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the Jewish state and said the United States has a solemn duty and a moral imperative to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability. Make no mistake, the ayatollahs in Iran are testing our moral defenses. They want to know who will object and who will look the other way, he said. We will not look away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and commitment to Israel. The presidential election hovered over the speech. The Old City formed a made-for-television backdrop behind Romney, while some of his campaign donors listened in the audience. Romneys declaration that Jerusalem is Israels capital was matter-of-fact and in keeping with claims made by Israeli governments for decades, even though the United States, like other nations, maintains its embassy in Tel Aviv. He did not say if he would order the embassy moved if he wins the White House, but strongly suggested so in a CNN interview. My understanding is the policy of our nation has been a desire to move our embassy ultimately to the capital (Jerusalem), he said, adding, I would only want to do so and to select the timing in accordance with the government of Israel. His remarks on the subject during his speech drew a standing ovation from his audience, which included Sheldon Adelson, the American businessman who has said he will donate millions to Romneys campaign. Romneys embrace of Israel was on display throughout the day when he met with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and other leaders. He also visited the Western Wall, Judaisms holiest site, where he was mobbed by worshippers. In addition, Romney met with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. In his remarks, Romney steered clear of overt criticism of President Barack Obama, even though he said the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran has only become worse in the past five years. Israel is the second of three stops on an international trip for Romney in the weeks before he claims the Republican nomination at his partys national convention in Tampa, Fla. A stop in Poland will complete his trip. Associated Press Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney places a prayer note Sunday as he visits the Western Wall in Jerusalem. In Israel, Romney pledges US commitment Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian tanks and artillery pounded rebelheld neighborhoods inthe commercial hub of Aleppo on Sunday in a bid to retake control as President Bashar Assads regime accused regional powerhouses Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey of trying to destroy the country. Activists say opposition fighters control large swathes of territory across Syrias largest city. The government has been struggling for a week to beat back their assault and stem the tide of recent rebel advances in the civil war. The head of the main opposition group, the Syrian National Council, called for international help in arming the rebels to face the regimes heavy weaponry, particularly tanks. If the international community cannot act, they should support the opposition with anti-tanks missiles and anti-aircraft rockets, Abdel Basset Sida told the Gulf News during a stopover in Abu Dhabi. We seek international supporters to arm our uprising against the regime. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have expressed willingness to help fund the rebels and they are believed to be funneling money through Turkey to the opposition, which is using it to purchase arms and equipment. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem railed against interference by the regions Sunni powers in a rare public criticism of his Middle East neighbors. He accused them of supporting the rebels at the behest of Israel. Israel is the mastermind of all in this crisis, he said during a news conference in Tehran. They (Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey) are fighting in the same front.

Olympians statuesque bodies a reminder of flagging fitness Associated Press LONDON W eve all been there before. Walking down the street or shopping for a shirt when we find ourselves chest-to-belt buckle with some impossibly tall, muscled platinum member of the human race whose inescapable physical perfection reminds us that its been a few days er, weeks uh, months since we hit the gym. At glittering Westfield Mall on the edge of Olympic Park, uncomfortable encounters between muscle and mush are remarkably frequent. At least here the Adonises wear team uniforms, so theres no mistaking them for regular people who are simply much more fit than you. These are Olympians. No wonder they look better than the rest of us. Still, its hard to hold back feelings of inferiority, whether you are a girthful Londoner, a pasty journalist or one of the multitudes of candy apple-shaped tourists who have come from around the world to witness the games. Flabbiness knows no borders. Its intimidating, said Richard Perry, a Londoner buying a soft, sugared concoction at the malls Mr. Pretzel concession stand Saturday as two mammoth Australian Olympians strutted past. Its like they are from a different planet. Indeed, the superhuman bodies of many of the men and women competing in the games are a stark reminder of how far the rest of us have fallen. The host country may be expecting a record haul of gold medals, but its people really pack on the British pounds. This is the fattest country in Europe, with a quarter of the population officially obese. A 2009 study found one in six Britons were too lazy to get up to change the channel if they couldnt find the remote, and would instead continue watching a program they were not interested in. Americans are even more overweight: More than a third of adults are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The average American logs four hours a day in front of the television, not to mention time spent online or texting friends. Perry, the pretzel purchaser, said he was cautiously optimistic the Games would inspire him to shed his modest paunch. Others were unmoved. They look great, gushed Lucy Harley, a young Apple Store employee who insisted she was comfortable with her average level of fitness and realistic about her laziness. If I wanted to look like that, I would dedicate more time to sport, she shrugged, making it clear she wasnt about to. Some athletes who were window-shopping as they waited for events to begin were happy to share advice and words of comfort with the mushy multitudes. In some sports, like weightlifting, we even have fat athletes, offered Marouane Mrabet, a lean Tunisian volleyballer who was sampling some massage cream. He said anybody who wanted to get in shape should work out for half an hour a day, and insisted they would notice a difference in their physique very quickly. Just dont expect to look like an Olympian. For an athlete? No. Thirty minutes is not enough, he laughed. This is nothing.

Associated PressLONDON The hiccups outnumbered the highlights, and for a while the U.S. racked up fouls faster than points. The opener wasnt artistic. However, it was enough easily enough. Kevin Durant scored 22 points in his Olympic debut, Kevin Love added 14 and LeBron James had eight assists as the American mens basketball team overcame some sloppy moments with a 98-71 win Sunday over France. We know everybody else expects us to win by 40 points, said Carmelo Anthony. For us, a wins a win. We expect every game to be like this one. Seeking a second straight gold medal to match the redemptive one they captured in Beijing four years ago, the Americans expected a tough test from a French team featuring San Antonio guard Tony Parker and five other NBA players. And although the U.S. was never in real SPORTS BRIEFS N. Koreas Park wins Evian Masters by two shots EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France Inbee Park of South Korea ended her four-year wait for an LPGA Tour title when she shot a 6under 66 on Sunday to win the Evian Masters, beating veteran Karrie Webb and overnight co-leader Stacy Lewis by two shots. It was Parks second LPGA Tour title and the first since the U.S. Open in 2008. She finished with a 17-under 271. It feels great. It was four years ago but it feels longer than that, Park said. I finished the round with some really strong putting today. The 24-year-old Park made birdies on the last three holes to coast home. After yesterday, a lot of players were in contention so I knew I had to shoot a good score out there, Park said. The greens were a lot quicker than the last five years. I like the fast greens, so I think that really suited me as well. Lewis, who shared the overnight lead with Park, made a run at the end, but her long putt for eagle on the 18th came too late. I actually played really good. I had probably four or five putts that I thought I made and just lipped out, said Lewis, who was runner-up last year to Japans Ai Miyazato, also by two shots. Its huge for me, because I didnt play well yesterday, didnt play my best today, and still I was right there. Fred Couples wins close Senior British Open in Scotland TURNBERRY, Scotland Fred Couples won the Senior British Open by two strokes over Gary Hallberg on Sunday after holing a 25-foot putt to finish with consecutive birdies. The 1992 Masters champion shot a 3-under 67 in the final round to finish at 9-under 271 on the Ailsa course and win his first tournament in Britain. Hallberg shot a 66, equaling the best round of the day with American Mark Calcavecchia and Carl Mason. English pair Barry Lane (69) and Mason and American Dick Mast (67) had a share of third at 4 under. Overnight leader Bernhard Langer dropped five shots in five holes on the way home to shoot a 75 and slip into a tie for sixth. Ive never won an Open Championship, so this is the next best thing. And I believe I now get into the (British) Open at Muirfield next year, which is great, Couples said. It was a fun day out there. Bernhard and I were neck and neck for a long time. Then I saw Gary had birdied the 17th to draw level, so I knew I needed to birdie 17. I hit a couple of great shots down 17 and two-putted for birdie, then the hole got in the way for my birdie putt at 18. Its my biggest senior tour win by far on a truly great golf course. I can now say I won the Senior British Open at Turnberry in really challenging weather.From wire reports Inbee Park Olympics/ B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B4 Lottery numbers/B4 Entertainment/ B6 Classifieds/ B8 Tampa Bay Rays beat Angels in Los Angeles/ B3 S PORTS Section B MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Fourth win for Johnson Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Jimmie Johnson stamped another exclamation point on his racing resume, winning his fourth career Brickyard 400 with a dominant drive at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday. With the victory, Johnson joined Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon as the only NASCAR drivers to win four times at the historic 2.5-mile track, which has hosted stock car racing since 1994. Four wins? Im at a loss for words, Johnson said in victory lane. Kyle Busch finished second, followed by Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Gordon. Polesitter Denny Hamlin was sixth. It was a rough day for Matt Kenseth, who came into Sundays race with the Sprint Cup Series points lead but was taken out of the race in a late collision with Joey Logano. Johnson also won the Brickyard in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Theyre that good, and they deserve it, Gordon said. The victory puts Johnson among some legendary names in the historic tracks record books. Gordon is the only other fourtime Brickyard 400 winner. Only three drivers have won four Indianapolis 500s: A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears; Mears was one of Johnsons racing heroes growing up.

Chasing the gold Associated Press American center Tyson Chandler, left, hangs on the hoop in front of French center Ronny Turiaf during the mens basketball preliminary round Group A match between the United States and France on Sunday in London. Associated PressLONDON Payback. This time, it was France chasing down the United States and Ryan Lochte, no less to win another riveting relay at the Olympics. With Michael Phelps looking much stronger than he did the night before, the Americans built a commanding lead over the first three legs of the 400meter freestyle relay Sunday and never really had to worry about the defending world champions from Australia. When Lochte dove into the water on the anchor leg, he was a half-body length ahead of the field and looking to add another gold to his dominating victory Saturday in the 400 individual medley. Not so fast. Or, should we say, not nearly fast enough. Yannick Agnel, playing the chaser role that Jason Lezak did for the Americans four years ago in this same event, sliced through the water and was right on Lochtes shoulder as they made the flip at the far end of the pool. With about 25 meters to go, they were stroke for stroke.

One big par at the end made him a winner Sunday at the Canadian Open. Piercy won for the second time in his career when he closed with a 3under 67, and William McGirt and Robert Garrigus stumbled on the closing stretch at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to finish a stroke back. McGirt, atop the leaderboard for much of the final round, had his first three-putt bogey of the week on the 15th hole when he ran a 45-foot putt some 15 feet by the hole. Tied for the lead playing the 18th, he put his approach into the bunker and blasted out to 18 feet, missing the par putt that would have forced a playoff. McGirt closed with a 69. Garrigus, the 54-hole leader, missed six putts inside 8 feet. The last one was the most costly. He three-putted from long range just off the green on the 16th, missing an 8footer for par that left him one shot behind. He missed a 15-foot birdie See PIERCY / Page B4 Fred Couples

Associated PressLONDON Five things to know about Sunday, Day 2 of the London Olympics: Whoa! North Korean lifts three times body weight for gold. Niger rower inspires Olympic crowd. Organizers turn to troops, teachers and students to fill empty seats. Durant leads U.S. past France in hoops opener. Rhode wins recordbreaking skeet gold for U.S. North Koreas Om Yun Chol said he wanted to lift a big weight and make the other athletes nervous. He definitely nailed that strategy. Om, standing all of 5 feet and 123 pounds, won a gold medal by confidently lifting an Olympic-record 370 pounds in the clean and jerk at the London Games. Only a handful of people have lifted more than three times their body weight, and this one came out of nowhere. Om was in the B group with lower-ranked competitors and lifted weights of 160 and 165 kilograms on his first two attempts early in the day. He got the crowd roaring when it was announced he would go for 168 kilograms the Olympic record. Among the few lifters who have cleared three times their body weight are Halil Mutlu and Naim Suleymanoglu, also of Turkey, known as the Pocket Hercules. A rower from Niger also captivated an Olympic crowd on Sunday when he trudged to the finish in last place in a single sculls repechage. With the packed grandstand cheering him on at Dorney Lake, 35-year-old Hamadou Djibo Issaka pushed though the pain and found enough energy to finish nearly 1 minute, 40 seconds behind the winner. After hearing the finishing horn, he slumped over in his boat, totally spent. After a few seconds, he lifted his head and saluted the crowd while wearing a wide grin. Djibo Issaka learned how to row only three months ago and has a technique that can generously be described as crude. He received a wild card from the IOC Tripartite Commission, which allows each National Olympic Committee to enter up to five athletes for the Summer Games. It went well, he said in French to The Associated Press. I passed the finish line. It was great. First lady Michelle Obama was part of a big crowd that watched the U.S. mens basketball team open tournament play with a 9871 win over France. Kevin Durant scored 22 points and LeBron James finished with nine points, eight assists and five rebounds. It wasnt perfect, said James, who had nine points, eight assists and five rebounds. Weve still got room for improvement. Kimberly Rhode also put on a show at the Royal Artillery Barracks, winning the gold medal in womens skeet shooting to become the first American to take an individual-sport medal in five consecutive Olympics. Rhode tied the world record and set an Olympic mark with 99 points. She also set an Olympic record in qualifying, missing only one of her 75 shots. The rest of the Olympic action Sunday: SWIMMING This was one sweet victory for France. Yannick Agnel rallied the French to the gold medal in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay, pulling ahead of American star Ryan Lochte on the final lap. France clocked 3 minutes, 9.93 seconds, and the Americans settled for silver in 3:10.38. Russia took bronze in 3:11.41. Pre-race favorite Australia was fourth. It was revenge for the French, who lost a close race to the Americans in Beijing four years ago. U.S. star Michael Phelps still won the 17th Olympic medal of his career and first silver to go along with 14 golds and two bronzes. Hes one away from tying the mark for most career medals held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. Dana Vollmer had a triumphant return to the Olympics, setting a world record while winning gold in the 100 butterfly. The American was third at the turn but powered to the wall for a time of 55.98 seconds. Vollmer, who made the Olympics as a 16-year-old in 2004, was a huge disappointment when she failed to make the team for Beijing in 2008. Camille Muffat of France edged American Allison Schmitt by less than half a stroke to win the 400 freestyle, and South Africas Cameron van der Burgh set a world record to win the 100 breaststroke. GYMNASTICS The U.S. women had the top score in qualifying, but the big story was world champion Jordyn Wieber. Wieber, a heavy favorite, is out of the all-around competition after finishing behind teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas. Countries are limited to two gymnasts in the allaround and event finals. The 17-year-old Wieber was sobbing as she made her way past reporters, so distraught she couldnt speak to them. A quote attributed to her and distributed by the London Games internal news agency said: It is a bit of a disappointment. It has always been a dream of mine to compete in the all-around final of the Olympics. Russia, runner-up to the Americans at last years world championships, was 1.4 points back with a score of 180.429. Beijing Olympics champion China was third (176.637), followed by European champion Romania (176.264) and Britain (170.656). TENNIS Maria Sharapova won her Olympic debut indoors, beating Shahar Peer of Israel 6-2, 6-0, and Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and David Ferrer were among the seeded winners on the mens side at Wimbledon. Playing under Wimbledons retractable roof on Centre Court because of rain, No. 3 Sharapova served well, returned aggressively and swept the final eight games. Sharapova carried the Russian flag in the opening ceremony after missing the 2008 Olympics because of a shoulder injury. Play was curtailed because of rain, with 32 matches postponed before they started and four suspended in progress. Only 12 matches were completed. VOLLEYBALL So far, so good for the defending champion U.S. mens team, which opened Olympic play by sweeping Serbia behind Matt Andersons 18 points. Captain Clay Stanley added 13 points in the 25-17, 25-22, 25-21 victory at Earls Court. In early matches Sunday, Bulgaria swept Britain, 2518, 25-20, 26-24, and Russia defeated Germany 31-29, 2518, 25-17. Australia, coached by Jon Uriarte, lost to Argentina 25-21, 25-22, 25-20. Son Nicolas Uriarte is a setter on the Argentine team. EQUESTRIAN Zara Phillips, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, wowed the home crowd and a few relatives in her Olympic equestrian debut. The 31-year-old Phillips registered a slight mistake on her appropriately named horse, High Kingdom, and earned 46.1 penalty points at Greenwich Park, placing her 24th out of 74 riders with two disciplines to go in the eventing dressage competition. Her grandfather, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and her mother, Princess Anne, were in the VIP seats as Phillips put High Kingdom through the paces of a standard dressage test to demonstrate the horses obedience. BEACH VOLLEYBALL Scattered showers sent fans at the picturesque Horse Guards Parade scurrying for shelter during the second day of the beach volleyball tournament, dampening what had been a festive mood but not deterring the second half of the field from making its 2012 Games debut. Emanuel Rego, a fivetime Olympian and defending world champion from Brazil, teamed with Alison Cerutti to beat Clemens Doppler and Alexander Horst 19-21, 21-17, 16-14. Elsa Baquerizo McMillan and Liliana Fernandez Steiner of Spain also rallied, edging Marleen van Iersel and Sanne Keizer of the Netherlands 14-21, 2116, 15-11. Defending gold medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser of the United States, and the No. 2 American womens team, April Ross and Jennifer Kessy, each won in straight sets. BOXING Freddie Evans maintained Britains perfect start to its home Olympic boxing tournament with an 18-10 victory over Algerian welterweight Ilyas Abbadi. Evans earned a solid victory in the final bout of the afternoon session, delighting the sold-out crowd waving dozens of Union Jacks and giving repeated standing ovations. Custio Clayton earned Canadas first Olympic boxing victory in eight years with a 12-8 decision over Mexicos Oscar Molina. Frances Alexis Vastine beat German welterweight Patrick Wojcicki 16-12, and Thailands Saylom Ardee lost an agonizing decision to Kazakhstans Gain Zhailauov in the most entertaining early fights at ExCel. Dominican lightweight Wellington Arias was impressive in a 17-8 victory over Colombias Eduar Marriaga, but earned the dubious honor of facing Ukraines top-seeded Vasyl Lomachenko in the second round Thursday.BASKETBALL Pau Gasol had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead Spain to a 97-81 victory over China in their Olympic mens opener. Spain got off to a slow start and had a 19-17 lead at the end of the first quarter. But it went on a 7-0 run in the second quarter to grab a cushion and was never seriously challenged the rest of the game. Yi Jianlian of the Washington Wizards had 30 points and 12 rebounds for China. SOCCER Powerhouse Spain was eliminated, Brazil and Japan wrapped up spots in the quarterfinals and host Britain is back on track with one round of qualifying matches to go in the mens tournament. Spain was hoping to add Olympic gold to the World Cup and European Championship titles held by the countrys full national team. But it lost 1-0 to Honduras and is without a goal in the tournament heading into its last game against Morocco on Wednesday. Neymar set up two goals and scored from a free kick to help Brazil beat Belarus 3-1, and Japan forward Kensuke Nagai had an 84thminute goal to secure a 1-0 win over Morocco. Britain posted an emphatic 3-1 victory over United Arab Emirates that knocked the Middle Eastern team out of the tournament. Mexico rebounded from a first-round loss by beating Gabon 2-0. Two-time Olympic champion Uruguay lost 2-0 to Senegal. Egypt played to a 1-1 draw against New Zealand, while South Korea beat Switzerland 2-1.DIVING Wu Minxia and partner He Zi won the first diving gold medal of the Olympics, moving China one step closer to a sweep of the eight events in London. They led throughout the five-dive round and totaled 346.20 points in the 3-meter synchronized event. Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant finished second with 321.90 points, ending Americas diving medal drought that extended to the 2000 Sydney Games. It was the first Olympic synchro medal for the U.S. China won seven of eight golds as the host country four years ago in Beijing and swept the golds at last years world championships in Shanghai. Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel earned the bronze with 316.80 for Canadas first medal of the games. CYCLING Marianne Vos of the Netherlands won the gold medal in the womens road race in a rain-drenched sprint, leaving Britains Elizabeth Armitstead with silver and the host countrys first medal of the London Olympics. Vos, the former world champion, made a daring move past Russias Olga Zabelinskaya to emerge from the three-rider breakaway. Zabelinskaya won bronze after a frantic finish through a driving rain that was reminiscent of four years ago in Beijing.

Troops, students, teachers to fill seats Associated PressLONDON Troops, teachers and students are getting free tickets to fill prime seats that were empty at some Olympic venues on the first full day of competition. Organizing chief Sebastian Coe answered widespread criticism Sunday by predicting that seats left unused, largely by Olympic and sports officials, will not be an issue as the games proceed. It is obvious, some of those seats are not being used in the early rounds, he said at a briefing. He declined to blame Olympic sponsors, whom he had earlier promised to name and shame if they did not use their allocations. Sponsors, including CocaCola and Visa, defended their use of allotted tickets 8 percent of the 8.8 million available tickets. The issue is sensitive for Olympic organizers and British sports fans after hundreds of thousands of people failed to get tickets in an initial public ballot. There is not a single person who thinks it is shambolic, Coe insisted, adding no one would object to free tickets for military personnel who stepped up to the mark this month to help solve a security staffing crisis at venues. Coes organizing team has long promised to fill venues and avoid a similar problem from the Beijing Olympics. He said he was jammed in shoulder to shoulder with Olympic officials to see swimming finals including the first Ryan LochteMichael Phelps duel on Saturday evening. He also pointed to record crowds lining the mens road race route, and for rowing events at Eton Dorney. Those venues are stuffed to the gunnels. The public are in there, Coe said. Yet broadcast images of signature Olympic events, such as gymnastics and swimming, revealed rows of empty seats for qualifying rounds Saturday. Tennis at Wimbledons Centre Court was sparsely attended just weeks after the Grand Slam event sold out. Army personnel attended gymnastics sessions Sunday morning at North Greenwich Arena during down time from security duties. There are a whole bunch of the military actually sitting in those seats at the moment. We can and we have moved them in there, Coe said. Students and teachers from east London neighborhoods also would get late calls for free tickets, having already been accredited in a planned reallocation program. Some ticket holders will get upgrades inside venues, Coe said. Some blame for the opening day embarrassment was falling on accredited people, including the Olympic family, athletes, and some sponsors and media, organizers said. Coe said it was typical at Olympics for sports and national team officials to be dragged to any number of venues, and be too busy to attend events in the opening days. I dont think you will be seeing this as an issue long term during the games. He went on to defend sponsors, whose legal rights to protect their brand at the Olympics often fuel criticism. I am not sure naming and shaming is what we are into at the moment. Sponsors are turning up, Coe said. Still, British Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt had said Saturday that no-shows were suspected to be corporate guests. We think it was accredited seats that belonged to sponsors, Hunt said. But if theyre not going to turn up, we want those tickets to be available for members of the public, because that creates the best atmosphere. Coca-Cola and Visa said they gave most of their allocated seats to prize winners in promotional offers. CocaCola said its competitions allowed people to choose the event they really wanted to attend. We have also invited some long-standing partners, employees, and customers to attend the games. We believe that usage levels of our tickets have been extremely high so far, the company said. Visa said it made great efforts to ensure that our ticket allocations are fully used. Organizers will use further tactics to boost attendance and offer more opportunities to see Olympic events. Releasing tickets for walk-up sales allowed for about 1,000 seats to be sold for gymnastics Saturday, and the Wimbledon policy of recycling tickets has been adopted. Coe said almost 300 people saw handball matches Saturday by buying cheap tickets 5 British pounds ($7.87) for adults, 1 pound ($1.57) for children which were handed in for resale by the original ticket holders on leaving the venue. Associated Press Members of the military sit in unoccupied sponsors seats during the artistic gymnastics team qualification Sunday at the Summer Olympics in London. Organizing chief Sebastian Coe said troops and local students will be given tickets to fill empty seats at Olympic venues. Olympics HIGHLIGHTS

WPHarrell, Fick. T:27. A,453 (40,981). Associated PressANAHEIM, Calif. Zack Greinke was outpitched by Jeremy Hellickson in his Los Angeles Angels debut, losing to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 Sunday. Obtained Friday from Milwaukee, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out eight. Greinke (0-1), eligible for free agency after the season, was 9-3 with a 3.44 ERA in 21 starts with the Brewers. Hellickson (6-6) pitched two-hit ball through six innings, striking out five and walking none. Fernando Rodney got three outs for his 30th save in 31 attempts, tying Baltimores Jim Johnson for the AL lead. With runners on first and second, Rodney fell behind Albert Pujols 3-0 in the count before inducing a game-ending, double-play grounder.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 6, Athletics 1 BALTIMORE Rookie Wei-Yin Chen struck out a career-high 12, Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat Oakland to avoid a threegame sweep. It was a rare setback for the As, who fell to 18-4 this month. Chen (9-6) allowed one unearned run, three hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings against a torrid Oakland team that had scored 40 runs in its previous four games. Rangers 2, White Sox 0 ARLINGTON, Texas Scott Feldman tied a career high by pitching eight shutout innings, and Texas snapped a two-game skid with a victory over the Chicago White Sox. David Murphy had three hits, including a double, and Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz each scored a run. Feldman (5-6) gave up seven hits and retired eight of the last 10 batters he faced. He threw only 88 pitches in matching the eight shutout innings he tossed two other times, the last being June 2, 2010, also against the White Sox in Chicago. Tigers 4, Blue Jays 1TORONTO Jhonny Peralta hit two home runs, Doug Fister pitched eight innings and the Detroit Tigers beat Toronto to avert a three-game sweep. The Tigers had lost three in a row and four of five to fall out of the AL Central lead. Jose Valverde closed for his 20th save in 24 chances as Detroit avoided being swept in Toronto for the first time since Sept. 5-7, 2003. Twins 5, Indians 1MINNEAPOLIS Justin Morneau hit a two-run homer, Brian Duensing threw six smooth innings as a late fill-in for Francisco Liriano and the Minnesota Twins finished a three-game sweep of Cleveland. Duensing needed only 70 pitches to finish six frames and yield to the bullpen after scattering five singles without a walk. Mariners 7, Royals 6 SEATTLE Felix Hernandez shook off a line drive to his left wrist and threw seven strong innings, and the Seattle Mariners beat Kansas City for a fourgame sweep. Seattle swept Kansas City in a fourgame set for the first time since May 2001. NATIONAL LEAGUEReds 7, Rockies 2 DENVER The Cincinnati Reds posted their 10th straight win and matched their best streak in 14 years, with Mat Latos pitching eight strong innings and Drew Stubbs homering Sunday in a 7-2 victory over Colorado. The Reds winning streak is their longest since they took 10 in a row in 1998. They are two short of the franchise record. Jay Bruce also homered and Stubbs drove in three runs for the Reds, who have won 17 of 19. Astros 9, Pirates 5HOUSTON The Houston Astros ended their team-record losing streak at 12 games, beating Pittsburgh behind three hits and three RBIs from Marwin Gonzalez. Hours after Houston traded third baseman Chris Johnson to Arizona, Jordan Schafer homered and drove in three runs. Houston, a big league-worst 35-68, won for only the third time in 28 games but has traded players with salaries totaling $49 million. Lucas Harrell (8-7) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings. Dodgers 4, Giants 0 SAN FRANCISCO Clayton Kershaw pitched a five-hitter for his second shutout of the season, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat San Francisco to complete a threegame sweep of the NL West leader. Luis Cruz drove in two runs, and Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, James Loney and Mark Ellis had two hits apiece for Los Angeles (56-47), which closed within one percentage point of San Francisco (55-46). Mets 5, Diamondbacks 1 PHOENIX R.A. Dickey rebounded from his first loss in three months to gain his National League-leading 14th win, and the New York Mets beat Arizona 5-1. Dickey (14-2) allowed an unearned run and four hits in seven innings, striking out eight, walking three and hitting a batter. The knuckleballer matched Tampa Bays David Price for the major league lead in wins. Marlins 5, Padres 4 (10 innings) MIAMI With scouts from about a dozen teams watching, Josh Johnson tied a career high with six walks as the Miami Marlins rallied from a two-run deficit and beat San Diego in 10 innings. Johnson, the 2010 NL ERA champion, allowed two runs one earned and two hits in five innings with four strikeouts. Miami, a disappointing 47-54 following a $191 million free-agent spending spree, already has dealt Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, and Anibal Sanchez in recent weeks and has discussed possible trades involving Johnson. Johnson is 54-30 with a 3.13 ERA for Marlins over the past eight years and is signed through next season at $13.75 annually. Justin Ruggiano hit a game-ending single off Brad Brach (0-2) after Jose Reyes doubled leading off and Carlos Lee was intentionally walked. San Diego loaded the bases with two outs in the 10th against Ryan Webb (4-2), but Chase Headley flied out. Cubs 4, Cardinals 2CHICAGO Anthony Rizzo hit a tworun homer in the 10th inning that lifted the Chicago Cubs over St. Louis. Starlin Castro led off the 10th with a single against Trevor Rosenthal (0-1) and Rizzo followed with his seventh homer. James Russell (5-0) worked an inning for the win. The Cubs are 12-3 in their last 15 home games. Nationals 11, Brewers 10 (11 innings) MILWAUKEE Michael Morse hit a tying, two-run homer in the ninth inning, then delivered a two-run double in the 11th that sent the Washington Nationals over Milwaukee. Bryce Harper drew a leadoff walk from Jose Veras (3-4) in the 11th and Ryan Zimmerman singled. One out later, Morse doubled down the left-field line for an 11-9 lead. Morses homer with one out in the ninth off John Axford made it 9-all. The NL East-leading Nationals rallied for four runs in the eighth to tie it at 7. The Brewers have lost nine of 10. Craig Stammen (4-1) pitched 2 1-3 hitless innings for the victory. Tyler Clippard allowed a solo home run to Corey Hart to open the bottom of the 11th, but earned his 20th save in 22 chances. Braves 6, Phillies 2 ATLANTA Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones homered off Roy Halladay, and the Atlanta Braves completed a threegame sweep of the last-place Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta has won five straight. Tim Hudson (10-4) gave up two runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Jonny Venters, Chad Durbin, Eric OFlaherty and Cristhian Martinez followed with twohit relief. In danger of ending a streak of consecutive playoff appearances at five, Philadelphia is last in the NL East this late in a season for the first time since Aug. 12, 2002, STATS LLC said. Halladay (4-6), a two-time Cy Young Award winner, allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.

putt on the 18th to force a playoff and had to settle for a 70. Piercy won while sitting in the clubhouse. Moments earlier, he two-putted for par from 50 feet on the 18th to finish on 17-under 263 and tie the oldest 72-hole scoring record on the PGA Tour. Johnny Palmer had a 263 when he won the Canadian Open in 1952 at St. Charles in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was the second time Piercy has won on the PGA Tour in the last year. He picked up his first win at the Reno-Tahoe Open last year, which is held next week for players who dont get into the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone. Now, Piercy is headed to his first World Golf Championship, and then off to the PGA Championship. More perks arrive next year when Piercy goes to Augusta National for the first time to play in the Masters. Piercy ran off four straight birdies starting on the second hole, a streak that concluded with consecutive two-putt birdies. He reached the par-5 fourth hole in two, and then drove the 296-yard fifth hole. In what amounted to a three-man race on a warm, sunny day at Hamilton, Piercy looked as if he took himself out of the hunt when he ran into trouble off the tee at the 14th, had to play out of the trees and make a 6-foot putt to escape with bogey. But he answered that bogey by chipping in for birdie on the 15th, and then hung on for pars. McGirt, who had never seriously challenged to win in his two years on tour, played in the last group over the final two rounds and played with poise. He took the outright lead by using a hybrid to chip from behind the ninth green, the ball rolling into the cup for an unlikely birdie. McGirt was steady from there until blasting his 45-foot birdie putt well past the cup for a bogey on the 15th. He failed to birdie the par5 17th when he went from the right rough to deep rough above the green to the left, and failed to hit the 18th green from the fairway. The small consolation for McGirt is not having to return to Qschool. His tie for second secures his card for next year, and he is all but assured getting into at least two of the FedEx Cup playoff events. I would have loved to have won the golf tournament, McGirt said. But I played very well all week. Garrigus might have wanted to break that long putter, which cost him dearly. He missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the third hole, and that summed up his round. He missed from 7 feet for birdie on the fourth and the eighth holes, and then missed from 8 feet on the ninth and badly missed a 4foot birdie putt on the 238yard 13th after one of his best tee shots of the final round. But he hung around, and when a 25-foot birdie putt finally fell on the 14th, he mockingly pumped his fist to celebrate. That left him one shot out of the lead, but he gave it back with another miss on his par putt at the 16th. Josh Teater (66), Bud Cauley (66) and Chris Kirk (68) tied for fourth, three shots behind. Vijay Singh closed with a 67 to tie for seventh. what still is considered one of the Sprint Cup Series most prestigious races. After drawing huge crowds for more than a decade after the first NASCAR race at Indianapolis in 1994, attendance has been sagging in recent years. The frontstretch stands were fairly full but there were sparse crowds in the turns. Jeff Burtons flat tire brought out a caution with 36 laps to go, giving the leaders an opportunity to make their final pit stops. Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Gordon and Busch all took four tires on their stops but Biffle only took two tires, allowing him to come out of the pits first. The race restarted with 31 laps to go, with Biffle taking the lead and Johnson fighting off Busch to hold on to second. Biffles lead didnt last long, as Johnson went around him on the front stretch with 29 laps to go. Joey Logano then spun and collected Kenseth, leaving his car banged-up and smoldering. Kenseth was OK but his points lead was gone. Everybody was just running everybody in the back, and you could see it was just a matter of time before the wreck happened, Kenseth said. Johnson got a flawless restart when the race went back to green with 20 laps to go, then pulled away from Busch in the closing laps of the race. Keselowski was going for a weekend sweep after winning the Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis on Saturday. And for a while, it looked like he might pull it off. Keselowski and the No. 2 team experimented with a different pit stop strategy than the rest of the leaders, attempting to set up the possibility of stretching their fuel mileage at the end of the race. Keselowski pitted on lap 91, while the rest of the leaders pitted under caution four laps later. But Keselowskis car got loose after the race restarted on lap 101, and he slid back to seventh a significant setback, given how hard it is to pass at Indianapolis. It was a rough day for Carl Edwards, whose engine began losing power only a handful of laps into the race. In his first race with new crew chief Chad Norris, Edwards qualified second and went into Sunday hopeful that it was a good omen for turning around what has been a fairly disappointing season. Edwards was running third in the early stages of the race, but began dropping in the field after mechanical problems hit. He had to make a lengthy pit stop, losing two laps to the leaders.

That position switch couldnt have worked out better for him or the Vikings. He was 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, taken with the fourth overall draft pick out of Pittsburgh, when he came to Minnesota. In college, he was a stand-up outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme, but the Vikings used a 4-3 alignment and asked him to frequently drop back in coverages he wasnt comfortable with. So when an injury to Mark Mullaney in 1986 created a spot at defensive end, Doleman was moved to the line. He used a unique blend of speed, technique and strength to amass 150 1/2 sacks over 15 seasons in the league, 10 of those with the Vikings. Doleman will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Canton, Ohio, next weekend. Im glad they moved him, to be honest with you, because I didnt like practicing with him, a guy that big, doing drills with you every day, said Scott Studwell, the college scouting director for Minnesota who played middle linebacker for the Vikings. Doleman is the fourth former Vikings player in the past five years to enter the Hall, following defensive tackle John Randle, guard Randall McDaniel and tackle Gary Zimmerman.

Face the Nation to keep new format BEVERLY HLLS, Calif. Face the Nationis remaining an hour long. CBS News says the Sunday interview program will stick with its hour length beyond its provisional expansion that began in April. Until then, the broadcast had been only 30 minutes in duration, half the length of rival shows Meet the Press on NBC and This Week on ABC. Roughly one-third of CBS stations still arent airing the second half-hour each week. CBS News president David Rhodes says the announcement Sunday is meant to assure holdouts the shows expansion wont be short-lived. The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association conference. Face the Nation, with Bob Schieffer anchoring, has grown in viewership in recent months and is now the top-rated Sunday morning public-affairs show.Tom Jones forced to cancel Olympic gig LONDON Tom Jones has apologized to fans after pulling out of an Olympic celebration concert in London after contracting bronchitis. The 72year-old Welsh crooner had been due to entertain tens of thousands of people at the outdoor concert in Hyde Park on Saturday. He was replaced by British singer Will Young The concert was part of the BT London Live series that is offering fans without Olympic tickets an opportunity to listen to music and watch sports on big screens. Metallica burns it up in Mexico MEXICO CITY Metallica vocalist James Hetfield warned things could get perilous at the start of the bands fifth tour of Mexico, saying Were very focused on how dangerous this show is. The audience of more than 22,000 believed it too. Many of the fans were visibly terrified Saturday night as the band re-enacted its burn-down-the-stage performance from 1998s Cunning Stunts video album. At one point a technician fled across the stage like a human torch in a Mexico City show that featured explosions, pyrotechnics, laser lights and the odd giant coffin. Hours earlier Hetfield said the tour would cover the bands 31 years of performing. Metallica has scheduled seven more shows at MexicoCitys Sports Palace before heading to dates in the U.S. and Canada. Spotlight on PEOPLE Page B5 MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday Friends who have proven to be loyal in the past will be your most reliable allies once again in the year ahead. It will pay to nurture these relationships by being supportive of your allies whenever you can. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Onlookers might believe you to be a better talker than a doer. This can easily be corrected, however, if you act first and leave the conversation until later. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Exercise restraint in your commercial dealings and dont jump on the first offer you receive. Thoroughly study all that is involved, both the obvious points and the subtleties. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Friends and associates will quickly become rattled about a critical situation if you are too indecisive. Once youve studied the matter, make your best judgment call and abide by it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Manage the people in your charge with a gentle hand, because they will respond more favorably to kindness than to demands or anger. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Instead of handling your resources with prudence, you could easily succumb to your more extravagant impulses. Remember, what you waste now wont be there when you really need it. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be extremely careful not to play favorites in your involvements with friends. If you do, knowingly or unknowingly, you wont like the results one bit. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Theres a chance youll become involved in an endeavor in which all the real power will reside in the hands of another. Should this happen, dont fight what you cant change. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Historically, when you spend impulsively, you seldom walk away with a good deal. If youre not careful, it could be one of those times when youll repeat this pattern. Aries (March 21-April 19) Friends who want to support you might turn reluctant if you come off as too self-serving. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Taurus (April 20-May 20) The biggest thing you might have to overcome is a lack of belief in your capabilities. If you dont have any faith in yourself, why should others? Gemini (May 21-June 20) Not everyone with whom youll be involved will be in accord with your way of thinking, but show a willingness to have a meeting of the minds and good things will happen. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If youre not careful, you could find yourself in the unenviable position of having others making all the decisions for you. Once you lose control, it could be difficult to regain it.

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 James Hetfield Tom Jones Associated PressLOS ANGELES The Dark Knight Rises stayed atop the box office for the second straight weekend, making just over $64 million. But its lagging behind the staggering numbers of its predecessor, 2008s The Dark Knight. The final piece in Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy has now grossed more than $289 million in its first 10 days in theaters. It dropped 60 percent from its opening weekend of $160.9 million. By comparison, The Dark Knight took a 53 percent drop in its second weekend with a gross of nearly $75.2 million and a 10-day cumulative gross of $313.8 million. Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., declined to comment on the Sunday estimates again out of respect for the victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting. But people are still going to the movies, and they did so even last weekend, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. If anything hurt the numbers for all movies this weekend, he said, it was Friday nights opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which drew a record-setting 40.7 million viewers in the United States. For a film that opened as big as this did, considering the situation and what happened last weekend and all that, I would say this is a very strong showing, Dergarabedian said.

Todays HOROSCOPE Associated Press The Netherlands Marianne Vos competes in the womens cycling road race final Sunday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. NBC caught flak on social media websites for airing the event while coverage of the mens basketball team languished on cable. D AVIDB AUDER Associated PressNEW YORK In the age of social media, NBC now has millions of television critics who make their opinions known about every aspect of Olympics coverage instantly. Theyve even set up their own hashtag on Twitter: #nbcfail. The online complaints focused Saturday on NBCs decision to air the marquee swimming event won by American Ryan Lochte on tape delay in prime time, and Friday on the network not streaming the opening ceremony online. Sundays critics started early: people wondering why the U.S. mens basketball teams opening game aired on a cable network while womens cycling was shown on NBC. The conversation is so active that NBCs executive producer of the games, Jim Bell, took to Twitter to answer critics and even change the way NBC is doing something in response. #nbcfail is filled with a lot of crying and snark and humor, but NBC can actually learn something from it, said Jeff Jarvis, a media critic who writes the Buzzmachine.com blog. Complaints about tape delayed coverage are an evergreen with Olympics held on foreign soil. But the London Games are the first with Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites in full flower, in a mobile phone era where people carry computers that instantly deliver news in their pockets. It has amplified the impatience of viewers who want to see events on their large-screen TVs instantly and havent been mollified by NBCs decision to stream the events live online. James Poniewozik, Time magazine TV critic, tweeted that NBC tape delay coverage is like the airlines: its interest is in giving you the least satisfactory service you will still come back for. That drew a quick response from NBCs Bell: You do know that all sports events are being streamed live right? I do, indeed! replied Poniewozik. Have enjoyed it. Apparently a lot of folks still prefer watching it on TV. NBC says it saves big events for prime-time airing because that is when most viewers are available to watch them and where the network makes the bulk of its advertising revenue. Since prime time on the U.S. East Coast coincides with 1 a.m. London time, there are no events to air live then. NBC representatives noted that there were 39 hours of live events Sunday on NBC and its affiliated networks. Even as it defends its approach, NBC clearly hears those critics. One of Bells Facebook posts highlighted coverage of Sundays cycling race by saying it was all-caps LIVE. The network advertised its live streaming on the prime-time broadcast. Jonathan Wald, who produces Piers Morgans CNN talk show and used to work at NBC, tweeted that the medal for most Olympic whining goes to everyone who complains about what happens every four years. Tape delay. The advent of Twitter makes it seems as if theres a lot of unhappiness when the majority of viewers are watching NBC on tape delay and appear satisfied with it, Wald said in an interview. NBC can point to television ratings justifying their approach. The Nielsen company said the opening ceremony drew more than 40 million people Friday, the most ever for one of those Olympic events. Saturdays first night of coverage was seen by 28.7 million, another record, beating every other first night of Olympic competition. In Beijing four years ago, 24 million watched on the corresponding night. Jarvis said he believes NBC could satisfy fans by, for example, televising events like Lochtes race live in the afternoon and then repeating it at night. He acknowledges, though, that hes not the one whod potentially be risking millions of dollars in advertising revenue if such a decision cut into prime-time viewing. Some of the online complaints seem to take special glee in bashing NBC, with a few describing it like an Olympic sport of its own. Some are quite personal, like the CNN producer who tweeted Sunday: No USA basketball in my hotel room. Why they arent putting it on NBCs main channel is beyond me! Bell, in some of his back-and-forth with online critics Sunday, answered one tweeter who described herself as a St. Louis mom and complained about NBCs Nightly News on Saturday airing results of events that hadnt been shown on the network yet. Bell tweeted that hed look into it, and shortly after told her that Nightly News would announce a spoiler alert to tell people to avert their eyes if they didnt want to see results. Not everyone online is a critic. On Sunday, the U.S. Olympic sailing team tweeted that it was by far the greatest sailing TV coverage in Olympic history. On social media, critics of NBCs coverage plentiful and loud

However, inexperienced players tend to do things in reverse. They underbid good-fit deals and get carried away with a misfit, hoping to find something that does not exist. In todays deal, look at the North hand. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade, and he rebids two hearts. What would you do now? Souths two-heart rebid shows at least a six-card suit, fewer than four spades and 12 to 14 points. (Yes, he has only 11 high-card points, but that hand is worth a one-bid.) Your sides combined highcard power is 22 to 24, insufficient for game unless you have either a good fit or a long, running suit. In this instance, you know there isnt a good fit and you have no reason to assume you can run nine tricks in three no-trump. You have only two sensible options: pass and no bid! Now lets look at two hearts. West leads the diamond jack. East takes dummys queen with his ace and returns the suit. How should South continue? Declarer has four side-suit losers (one spade, two diamonds and one club), so can afford only one trump loser. The best play is low to the queen. This succeeds whenever East has king-third or kingfourth. To start with low to the 10 wins only when East has jack-third, which is less likely. After the queen wins, declarer cashes his heart ace and drives out Easts king.

Several months ago, I caught him talking to a woman online, and Im worried its happening again. In spite of my suspicions, however, when Ive checked his activity, I see nothing. (I realize he could be deleting things.) Last night, we went out for dinner, and we werent in the door five minutes before he was standing in the bedroom with his tablet in his hands checking his email. When I tell him Id like him to spend more time with me instead of his computer, he gets angry. What can I do? My Husband Doesnt Listen to Me Dear Listen to Me: Are you objecting because your husband is addicted to his computer or because you think he is using it to cheat? Our concern is that he becomes angry when you broach the subject. This defensiveness is a way to protect his behavior. If you simply want more of his attention, first determine whether you are being too clingy, and then find effective ways to distract him. However, if you simply dont trust him, that is a more serious issue, and we recommend counseling with or without him. Dear Annie : I used to have a lot of friends, and then I went through a major depression. I tried not to lean on them too much, but I did need to talk. I was universally abandoned. I was no longer fun. I was too frightened and depressed to go out. I couldnt listen endlessly to their problems anymore. I wanted them to listen to mine. But I was careful not to suck the life out of them. In fact, some friends never knew I was depressed. So, here I am with 350 Facebook friends from high school, college, work and church. Yet none of them calls. I saw these same people through multiple calamities. They will respond if I contact them, but thats it. They are happy to like my Facebook status or comment on a photo, but no one invites me anywhere. When I was at rock bottom, I often contemplated suicide. I sought help and got medication and counseling and am better. Im sure if I died, these same people would show up at my funeral and say wonderful things about me. If anyone sees themselves in this, please check out your roster of friends and show some friendliness. I sure could use some. Lost in the City Dear Lost: We suspect that when you went through an extended period of staying home, your friends developed the habit of enjoying themselves without you. Youve made great steps in recovery, but might not be high on their list of social contacts. And please remember that 350 Facebook friends do not equal one or two real-life, supportive friends. You will need to make the next several moves, inviting people to go out to dinner, a movie, an art exhibit, a fashion show, whatever appeals to you. Once they remember how much they enjoy your company, things will improve. And if these friends continue to be distant, its time to find some new ones. Dear Annie : Id like to weigh in about having flowers at funerals. My mother was adamant on this subject. She always told me that if I couldnt bring her flowers when was alive, she sure didnt want them when she was dead. So my brother and I gave her flowers whenever we could. At her funeral, we had a single red rose on her casket. It was her favorite flower. Im sure the people attending the service thought we were being cheap, but I felt we kept to her wishes. Im sorry about the florists loss of income, but my mothers preferences were much more important. Chattaroy, Wash.

enough left to hold off the towering, 20-year-old Frenchman, one of the sports real rising stars. I gave everything in the last 50 until he cracked, Agnel said. In the last 10 meters, I saw that he was really cracking. Agnel touched in 3 minutes, 9.93 seconds, having gone exactly one second faster than Lochte over the last 100 meters. Lochte and the Americans dropped to silver in 3:10.38, while Australia the favorite didnt even get a medal. Russia took the bronze in 3:11.41, edging the team from Down Under by 0.22 for the last spot on the podium. We knew the Australians would be very strong, but they were very nervous, perhaps like us in 2008, said Clement Lefert, who swam the third leg for the French. We were very relaxed, like the Americans in 2008. And four years later, he added, we got our revenge. Phelps settled for his 17th career medal and first silver to move a step closer to becoming the most decorated Olympian ever. At least Im in a medal today, Phelps said ruefully, referring to a fourth-place finish in his first race of the London Games. But silver was a bitter disappointment for the Americans, who now know how the French felt four years ago. France had the lead in Beijing and its best sprinter, Alain Bernard, going out on the final leg. But Lezak swam the fastest relay leg in history, drafting Bernard along the lane rope and beating him by a scant 0.08 seconds to keep Phelps on track for his record eight gold medals. It was one of the greatest races in Olympic history. This one wasnt too shabby, either. We put out our best four guys and we went out there to try to win it, Lochte said. But we came up short. So, I mean, Im kind of bummed because when you go up on the blocks you always want to win. But serving our country, getting a medal, you cant be mad about that. trouble it only led 22-21 after one quarter there were enough flaws (14 turnovers, 26 fouls) to keep coach Mike Krzyzewski and his staff busy and this superstar-laden squad from feeling too comfortable. It wasnt perfect, said James, who only took six shots while setting up his teammates. Weve still got room for improvement. We had too many turnovers, too many fouls and we had a couple of defensive rebounds we could have come up with. But overall, we played a pretty good game for as close to 40 minutes as possible. Kobe Bryant had said this team could beat the 1992 Dream Team that changed international hoops forever at the Barcelona Games. That matchup is mythical, but the London Games arent, and this U.S. team will have to play much better in upcoming games if it plans to maintain American dominance. We know we have to keep going for 40 minutes and play hard, said Bryant, who only played 12 minutes. Afterward, Parker, who nearly missed these games after undergoing surgery for a freak eye injury, didnt want to concede anything to the Americans. But when asked if the U.S. team can be beat, he took a contemplative pause before responding. Theyre going to be very, very tough to beat, Parker said. At times, the Americans offense was erratic. The U.S. missed its first six 3-pointers and settled too quickly for jump shots instead of driving to the basket. But France wasnt able to capitalize as the U.S. turned up its pressure on defense and forced 18 turnovers. With first lady Michelle Obama on hand to cheer on the U.S., Durant, Anthony and Tyson Chandler added nine rebounds apiece for the Americans, who will next play Tuesday against Tunisia, beaten 60-56 by Nigeria in the tournament opener. As they left the floor, the U.S. players stopped to hug Mrs. Obama, who can report back to her commander in chief husband that his favorite team has taken its first step toward gold. Parker, playing with goggles to protect a surgically repaired left eye, scored 10 points but France fell to 0-5 in Olympic competition against the USA. Ali Traore scored 12 points to lead France, which got few uncontested looks from the outside and missed 20 of 22 3-pointers. They pressured us from the start until the end, said France coach Vincent Collet. With the U.S. leading 5236 at halftime, Durant opened the second half with a 3-pointer, Bryant dropped one from long range and after James dunked an alley-oop pass from Deron Williams, the Americans led 64-43. Au revoir, France. The U.S. teams lead ballooned to 78-51 after three quarters, allowing Krzyzewski to rest Bryant, James and Durant for most of the fourth quarter. With the game well in hand, Krzyzewski even gave 19year-old Anthony Davis, the top pick in Junes NBA draft, his first taste of Olympic play. Durant had struggled to score during a recent exhibition tour, prompting James to give his close friend and teammate a pep talk. I told K.D. to be himself, James said. We need the K.D. who scores. We dont need the K.D. who defers. Unlike his peers, Krzyzewski has the luxury of a deep bench, and he was forced to go it early and often in the first half, when the Americans got into foul trouble. They were called for 18 personals and complained about some of the calls. Anthony and Russell Westbrook spent the final six minutes of the second quarter on the bench after picking up their third fouls.

Little Bear is an awesome companion. Hes a 2-year-old shepherd mix whose owner gave him up due to housing issues. He learns quickly, knows some basic commands and is very laid-back and well mannered in the house, preferring to rest on the floor wherever his human is. While he gets along well with other dogs on walks and on public outings, he would do best in a home without other dogs or cats. He is heartworm negative and has already been microchipped. His adoption fee of $60 includes vaccinations, neutering, free obedience class and a month of free pet insurance. Meet him to see if hes the perfect dog for you.

How safe are you? Statistics show county is safer than before A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterIf Citrus County resident Stephanie Bookers personal safety index and crime data are any indication, officials claims about being the second safest county per population in the state does indeed hold water. I feel extremely safe here, said the former Clearwater resident. We have neighborhood watch where we live and we rely on each other for support. The police are always there when you need them. There may be some issues with drugs in the county, but compared to other places, this is a very safe place, Booker added. Booker and her friend Shirley Keller, who were recently at a swim activity at Bicentennial Park, said as educators in the county, they consider themselves pretty perceptive and aware of their surroundings. If you really look at the crime and safety issue objectively, we really do have it good here, Keller added. Jack Uher and his wife Renate moved here in 2001 from Indiana after looking at potential destinations in the Carolinas and other states. It just felt right here. I like to fish and be outdoors, so we purchased a home in Sugarmill Woods and have been happy since, Uher said. The sheriffs office is doing a great job and we feel safe here, he said. The sheriffs office is giving credit for the relative safety of the county to various initiatives by the agency chief among them is Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) and partnerships with the school system. When Sheriff Jeff Dawsy was asked the same question, he tossed out a few statistics: Florida is the sixth worst state for violent crimes and is surpassed only by California INSIDE JULY 30, 2012Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOLUME 117 ISSUE 358 50 CITRUS COUNTY www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A12 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL:Your choice?Which primary election race/races are of greatest concern to you?

Emergency dispatch received a call at 1 p.m. that a 13-year-old from Sebring had gone underwater in the barge canal north of Crystal River and did not return to the surface. The body of Brent Latrell Patterson Jr. was recovered at about 3:25 p.m. by the Citrus County Sheriff s Office Dive Team, according to Gail Tierney, CCSO spokeswoman. Patterson had been swimming with another 13-yearold boy, his cousin, about 2.6 miles west of the U.S. 19 bridge that crosses the barge canal in northwest Citrus County. Tierney said Patterson had been swimming with his cousin when he began struggling in the water and went under. Patterson had been in the water about 15 minutes before dispatch received the call, according to Tierney. Patterson was part of a family group that included two adults and two youths, including the 13-year-old cousin and another boy, who were from the Ocala area in Marion County. Responding agencies included the CCSO dive team, boat, ground deputies and helicopter, the Inglis Police Department, the U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers and Nature Coast EMS. The body was taken to the medical examiner s office in Leesburg. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. Eyes, ears on crime DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleInverness Highlands Crime Watch Unit volunteers Helene and Edwin Graham check out a lift station in the county. The couple enjoys volunteering with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and feels the crime watch units provide a valuable service to not only the agency but to Citrus County residents. Crime Watch volunteers patrol countySHEMIRWILES Staff WriterINVERNESS Firsthand, Edwin and Helene Graham see the difference the Crime Watch units make. The couple patrols the Inverness Highlands area. Edwin has been a volunteer crime watchman for 15 years. Helene has been doing it for five years. A retired law enforcement officer from New York, Edwin said he decided to volunteer with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a way to give back to the community and help the sheriffs office. Up North, he said, there were similar programs, and he saw what an impact they made in helping reduce crime and being the extra eyes and ears for the law enforcement officers. Edwin has been in charge of the Inverness Highlands unit for the past 13 years. The responsibilities of all the volunteers who patrol are pretty easy: be observant and call in anything suspicious. I believe we provide a valuable service to the sheriffs office and the county, he said. Helene, who most spends her volunteer time at the Shirley KellerWe really do have it good here. Stephanie BookerI feel extremely safe here. Kings Bay sewer plan pulls owners together CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterResidents within two areas of a special assessment district are exploring setting up an organization to deal with the county and the city of Crystal River about their concerns. We want to continue the program that was offered on Dec. 13 when I was asked to represent the property owners with staff, said Norman Hopkins, a property owner within the wastewater special assessment district formed by an interlocal agreement between Citrus County and the city of Crystal River. We want to get a seat at the table before anything else is enacted that raises more problems. A public hearing to finalize the assessment roll for the project to install a public sewer line was pulled from the agenda at the July 24 meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by an attorney for the residents, Peter Aare. The hearing was postponed to 9 a.m. Aug. 20. According to Aare, residents within the assessment area would form a formal group to address the assessment only and carry out no other functions of a homeowners association. Hopkins referred to a Dec. 13 meeting of the BOCC when he raised issues and was told he could discuss them with county staff. However, Hopkins said after Tuesdays meeting his issues raised Dec. 13 had not been addressed. The residents would form a body to discuss these issues with the county. We are trying to get to a position where property owners will be consulted and can vote, Hopkins said. The issues arise from the last of 11 phases of a project that dates back to a 1999 grant that was part of a statewide effort to reduce contamination to the groundwater by eliminating septic tanks at private residences around Kings Bay. Property owners point out that their properties are in an unincorporated area, and they have been resistant to hooking up to city sewer services. We are not against the See SEWER/ Page A5 PUBLIC HEARING A special meeting to conduct a pub lic hearing to take comment about the adoption of two resolutions related to the 2010 Citrus County/City of Crystal River Wastewater Special Assessment District Areas 112 and 113 has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Aug. 20 in Room 100 at the Citrus County Courthouse, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. One dead, one hurt in Citrus SpringsOne Citrus Springs man was found dead and another wounded Sunday following a domestic disturbance. Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) deputies were dispatched just after 4 p.m. Sunday to a domestic disturbance in progress at 2250 W. Summer Place in Citrus Springs. When they arrived at the residence, they found a 69-year-old man, Harold Gene Brown, dead from knife wounds, and his stepson, Michael Staton, 56, also suffering from stab wounds, according to Gail Tierney, CCSO spokeswoman. The younger man was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital for treatment. Browns wife, who is Statons biological mother, also was in the home when the disturbance occurred. The medical examiners office will transport Browns body to Leesburg for autopsy. CCSO detectives and crime scene technicians responded to the scene, and a homicide investigation is under way. CRIME RATES The percentage of reported crimes c leared by arrest (or else exceptionally cleared) by the sheriffs office in its own jurisdiction increased marginally from 30.8 percent in 2010 to 31.3 percent in 2011. In Crystal River, however, the clearance rate rose dramatically from 40.0 percent in 2010 to 48.7 percent in 2011. All of these numbers rank above Floridas statewide clearance rate of 24.2 percent. The sheriffs office reported 4,988 ar rests in 2011, fewer than the 5,695 reported in 2010. Within the city limits of Crystal River, however, there were 621 arrests in 2011, up from the 587 reported in 2010.Source: Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Jeff DawsyCitrus County sheriff.

JESSEWASHINGTON AP National WriterPHILADELPHIA Ask Americans how race relations have changed under their first black president and they are ready with answers. Ashley Ray, a white woman, hears more people debating racial issues. I know a lot of people who really thought we were OK as a nation, a culture, and now they understand that were not, she said. Karl Douglass, a black man, sees stereotypes easing. White people deal with me and my family differently, he said. Jose Lozano, who is Hispanic by way of Puerto Rico, believes prejudice is emerging from the shadows. Now the racism is coming out, he said. In the afterglow of Barack Obamas historic victory, most people in the United States believed that race relations would improve. Nearly four years later, has that dream come true? Americans have no shortage of thoughtful opinions, and no consensus. As the nation moves toward the multiracial future heralded by this son of an African father and white mother, the events of Obamas first term, and what people make of them, help trace the racial arc of his presidency. Shortly before the 2008 election, 56 percent of Americans surveyed by the Gallup organization said that race relations would improve if Obama were elected. One day after his victory, 70 percent said race relations would improve and only 10 percent predicted they would get worse. Just weeks after taking office, Obama said, There was justifiable pride on the part of the country that we had taken a step to move us beyond some of the searing legacies of racial discrimination. Then he joked, But that lasted about a day. Or, rather, three months. By July 2009, the black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates was arrested for yelling at a white police officer who questioned whether Gates had broken into his own home. Asked to comment, Obama said he didnt know all the facts, but Gates was a personal friend and the officer had acted stupidly. The uproar was immediate. Obama acknowledged afterward, I couldve calibrated those words differently. Ed Cattaneo, a retired computer training manager from Cape May, N.J., points to that episode as evidence of how Obama has hurt race relations. Hes made them terrible, said Cattaneo, who is white. He also sees Obama as siding against white people through actions such as his Justice Departments decision to drop voter intimidation charges against New Black Panthers and in a program to turn out the black vote called African-Americans for Obama. Larry Sharkey, also white, draws different conclusions from the past four years. Attitudes are much better, Sharkey said as he slices raw meat in a Philadelphia butcher shop. He remembers welcoming a black family that moved next door to him 20 years ago in Claymont, Del. A white neighbor advised him not to associate with the new arrivals, warning, Your property values are going to go down. That kind of thing would never happen today, Sharkey said. As Obama dealt with fallout from the Gates affair during the summer of 2009, the tea party coalesced out of opposition to Obamas stimulus and health care proposals. The vast majority of tea party members were white. A small number of them displayed racist signs or were connected to white supremacist groups, prompting the question: Are Obamas opponents motivated by dislike of the presidents policies, his race or both? As that debate grew, Obama retreated to the raceneutral stance that has been a hallmark of his career. An October 2009 Gallup poll showed a large drop in racial optimism since the election, with 41 percent of respondents saying that race relations had improved under Obama. Thirty-five percent said there was no change and 22 percent said race relations were worse. The president has discussed race in occasional speeches to groups such as the National Urban League or the National Council of La Raza, and in interviews with Hispanic and black media outlets. But he usually walks a careful line, allowing the nation to get used to the idea of a black president without doing things to make race seem a central aspect of his governance. There is a totally different psychological frame of reference that this country has never had, said William Smith, executive director of the National Center for Race Amity at Wheelock College. He cites evidence of progress from the mindset of children in his programs to new history curriculums in Deep South schools. To me, thats a quantum leap, Smith said. Douglass, a real estate agent from Columbus, Ga., said white people seem less surprised to see him with his wife and daughter in places such as an art museum or a foreign language school. I think white people deal with me and my family differently since an AfricanAmerican man is leader of the free world and a nuclear black family lives in the White House, he said. But Steven Chen, an AsianAmerican graduate student in Philadelphia, points to racial rhetoric he has heard directed toward Obama, in person and online, as proof that race relations have deteriorated. He also has observed a more visible sign of division: fewer Obama T-shirts. When he was elected, it was an American thing. People of all races wore them, said Chen. Today its a distinctly black phenomenon. Ray, a graduate school administrator from Chicago, is uncertain whether race relations have remained the same or gotten worse. Its good that people are talking about race more, she said, but I know quite a few people who are sick of those discussions and blame him for all of it. In the summer of 2010, race and politics collided again when Arizona Republicans passed an immigration law that critics said would lead to racial profiling of Hispanics. Lozano, the police sergeant, remembers that when Obama visited Arizona and met with the governor, who supported the law, she wagged an angry finger in the presidents face. That was ugly, Ive never seen anything like that, said Lozano, who also is vice president of the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers. Theres no way that would have ever happened to a white president. By the fall of 2010, Republicans had triumphed in the midterm elections and made history by electing Hispanic and Indian-American governors in New Mexico, South Carolina, and Nevada. Two black Republicans also went to Congress, from South Carolina and Florida. Less than a year later, an August 2011 Gallup poll showed a further decline in racial optimism: 35 percent said race relations had improved due to Obamas election, 41 percent said no change, and 23 percent said things were worse. Around this time, some black lawmakers and pundits openly complained about the presidents refusal to specifically target any programs at high black unemployment. An interviewer from Black Entertainment Television asked Obama why not. Thats not how America works, Obama replied. Then came this Februarys killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, whose father is white and mother is from Peru. Authorities initially declined to charge Zimmerman with a crime, causing a polarizing uproar. This time, when asked about the case, Obama delivered a carefully calibrated message. He said all the facts were not known, the legal system should take its course and that if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon. The comment was factual, but it still strikes Cattaneo as a coded message to black people that Obama is on their side. A lot of people I talk to cant understand why a man whos half-white and halfblack is so anti-white. This April, in a poll by the National Journal and the University of Phoenix, 33 percent felt race relations were getting better, 23 percent said they were getting worse, and 42 percent said they were staying about the same.A2MONDAY, JULY30, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000BO4M CARPET TILE WOOD VINYL LAMINATE SERVING CITRUS COUNTY SINCE 1975 527-1811 FREE ESTIMATES 44 W.

Jan Brewer points Jan. 25 during an intense conversation with President Barack Obama after he arrived at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, in Mesa, Ariz.

Miami-Dade Police Detective William Moreno said the incident started when officers responded to a call at 8 a.m. from a woman who claimed she had been beaten by Cash, her childs father.

when it comes to cyber crimes. But the fact remains, we are still the second-safest county per populous. Only Santa Rosa County in the Panhandle is safer, he said. Dawsy believes the ILP program which the agency began implementing in 2009 and a program called STP (safeschool interagency team for prevention) are paying dividends. We are being very aggressive, innovative and creative in going after the bad guys, but we also building great relationships with the community so they can help us make things even safer, Dawsy said. He said the STP program helps identify kids who may be going through difficulties because of a tumultuous home life, open channels of communication and offer counseling when and if it is needed. He said the agencys work with Seniors vs. Crime is helping residents address problems with swindlers. Lt. Justin Ferrara said one element of ILP policy is gaining community involvement. It takes time for something like this to take hold, but I think we are getting everybody in the agency involved in it. Everyone knows their roles, and the community is being engaged and they, too, involved, Ferrara said. Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) involves the collection and analysis of information on habitual offenders and their affiliates. The method began in the U.K. back in the early 1990s, but quickly gained currency as law enforcement agencies began tackling terrorism. It has since taken root in the U.S. and Florida. Hillsborough County uses the technique and Pasco County also is experimenting with it. Most of the crimes are committed by a small portion of the community, and we identify those people and keep an eye on them, Ferrara said. He said engaging the community and counting on its vigilance should help stem most crimes of opportunity. Make it hard for the criminal. Simple things like locking your doors and windows (car or home), not leaving valuable things in plain view will go a long way in stopping some of those crimes, Ferrara said. Crime nationwide has been on the wane recently. The Federal Bureau of Investigations is reporting a decrease of 4 percent in the number of violent crimes in 2011 compared to figures from 2010. The violent crime category includes murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. In Florida, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is reporting a 41year low in crime. The number of violent crimes (murder, forcible sex offenses, robbery and aggravated assault) was down by 3.7 percent, according to the agency. Officials show a 0.2 percent decrease in the number of murders, a 0.1 percent decrease in forcible sex offenses, a 1.8 percent decrease in robberies and a 5 percent drop in aggravated assault. Nonviolent crime (burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft) in Florida increased 0.4 percent. Burglary and larceny each rose 0.7 percent. The number of motor vehicle thefts decreased by 4.4 percent.

We are against the way the assessment was structured and the burden it puts on the property owners. In October, the BOCC voted 4-1 to establish a municipal services benefits unit (MSBU) for the last phase of the sewer project and to create a special assessment district. The project cost is $4.6 million. The grant is $3.9 million. The cost to connect to the citys wastewater system is $3,425. The assessment fee has been listed at $2,310 per land parcel. By law, each property owner would have to hook up to the service within 365 days of it becoming available. Each owner would need to disconnect from the septic system and take the septic tank out of service by hiring a licensed plumber. Speaking to the Chronicle, Hopkins outlined several issues about the project. For one, Hopkins said the city and the county are working from the wrong type of agreement. Residents want an interlocal boundary agreement such as drafted for the Plantation Inn, Hopkins said. We would take that and adapt it to current circumstances to preserve the right of the property owners to determine their own destiny. Another sticking point is the financing of the project. In 2002, Hopkins said, the original state grant required the county to provide a matching fund of 15 percent. The county transferred the requirement to the city. In 2004, the city took a loan to cover its matching fund. Therefore, it had 100 percent funding from the state, Hopkins said. Effectively, the liability of the city to put up a 15 percent matching fund was transferred to the property owners, Hopkins said. According to Hopkins, the loan would be no liability to the city, but the loans terms are not being transferred to the property owners. While the city has to pay back the loan to the state in installments every six monthly over 20 years it is asking for the money up front from the property owners. Further, Hopkins questioned the connection fee of $3,425 on each land parcel, whether a house was on it or not. He said the $3,425 was an arbitrary figure arrived at as a legacy figure of $2,740 that city taxpayers pay plus a 25 percent surcharge permissible when administrative and engineering costs are not separately funded. Hopkins said the surcharge should not apply in this case, because the administrative and engineering costs are included in disbursements by the state. Hopkins also maintained the city would use the assessment fees to help pay for a separate project, a connection pipeline to the Crystal River Energy Complex. That is not a permitted use of those funds, Hopkins said.

The biggest thrill, she said, is not knowing what theyre going to come across. In one particular incident, Helene said, she had been keeping an eye on a home for someone who was on vacation. The home originally had two motor homes in the yard, but one day while patrolling she noticed one of the motor homes was gone. Naturally, I called in, she said. Though it turned out a neighbor had bought the motor home and took it with permission from the homeowner, Helene said one could never be too careful. Edwin said Sgt. Chris Evan, who heads up the volunteer unit, always reminds the volunteers it is better for a deputy to be called and it turn out to be a false alarm than for volunteers to not call at all and fail to report an actual crime. Evan said the volunteers who work in all different departments of the sheriffs office are invaluable. If we didnt have those people, whos going to do it? he said. In 2011 alone, Crime Watch volunteers patrolled 378,089 miles and checked 67,231 homes, 14,572 construction sites and 32,062 county sites. So they have been busy, he said. In addition to patrolling, Evan said the Crime Watch volunteers also perform home checks for people on vacation, help look for missing persons, help hand out sex offender flyers and call in other types of concerns, like abandoned vehicles and damaged sites. Edwin also said as volunteers, they also help with special events like directing traffic at parades. It relieves the sworn dep uties from having to do it, Helene said. So we do the dirty work, she joked. While patrolling, Helene said many of the volunteers take the opportunity to educate residents about ways to reduce crime by doing simple things like locking their car doors or securing their garages so people dont walk off with expensive equipment or break into homes. They also like to focus attention to certain areas that are prone to crime. I feel like a lot of people dont know what we do and the service we provide, she said. Of his 720 volunteers, Evan said 500 of them are with the patrol unit. Many of them are retired, but the sheriffs office has volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. Some are young and aspire to a career in law enforcement, and some are clients from the Key Training Center. Nevertheless, though Evan oversees a good number of volunteers, he said there is always a need for more. Currently the biggest needs are in fingerprinting in Lecanto and community patrol on the west side of the county, especially Crystal River. For more information or to request an application form, call Evan at 352-527-3701, or email him at cevan@sheriffcitrus.org. People can also pick up an application at any of the agencys offices throughout the county. To download a volunteer application, go to www. sheriffcitrus.org and click on the Volunteers tab.

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.

According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301.

A10MONDAY, JULY30, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OPINION Letters to theEDITOR Corporate crimeRecently, it was been announced that GlaxoSmithKline is to pay more than $3 billion in fines, penalties, etc. for Medicare fraud and related misconduct. This achievement makes GSK the clear champion in Medicare fraud, exceeding as it does not only our governors former continuing enterprise (HCA $1.7 billion in 2003) but even Pfizers formerly impressive $2.3 billion payment in 2009. Curiously, between HCA and Pfizer (i.e. when HCA still proudly held the record) an outfit referred to in the press as the Armenian mafia was nailed for Medicare fraud amounting to less than half HCAs amount. Some journalists, apparently forgetting HCA, temporarily gave the Armenian mafia credit for setting a record. Curiously, it was mentioned that 26 members of the latter were being held on criminal charges. But reports are silent about criminal charges, if any, for the executives responsible for vastly larger swindles. Unfortunately, the Armenian mafia does not qualify for admission to our elite, white-collar kleptocracy as being Gods Elect and Natures Noblemen. They didnt steal enough. More recently, a local employer wrote bitterly to the Chronicleabout an employee who requested fewer work hours so as not to lose food-stamp eligibility. He was kind enough to mention that the employees livein girlfriend had done so as well. Apparently, modifying earnings to achieve a slight increase in living standards is contemptible. And he was a sinner to boot! Another champion of virtue called in relating that most employees spent their time on personal phone calls (presumably from broom closets.) But Ill bet both the employer and his cheering section voted to elect the godfather of HCA governor of Florida.Patrick Condray OzelloBroken branchesA recent article in the Chronicleshould be of great concern to all citizens of Florida. Apparently, State Rep. Scott Plakon asked Gov. Rick Scott to have the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate three Florida Supreme Court justices for using a state employee to notarize election documents. Scott was more than willing because he wants to replace them with judges who will do what he wants. This is the governor whose health care corporation which he founded was found guilty of 14 criminal charges and paid over a billion dollars in fines. The investigation was done and founded. The judges used staff that notarizes everything else for them to notarize their election forms. The judges do not have opponents. The ballot actions are just a vote of confidence not an election. The state attorney declined to file any charges because he felt the violations were trivial and not serious enough to warrant charges. These actions are probably equivalent to an employee using the office copy machine for personal business. Now an Atlanta, Ga.-based organization (the Southeastern Legal Foundation) has filed a legal action against the judges. One can only wonder what its interest in this issue is and who funds it. I feel very uneasy when the executive and legislative branches of government attempted to manipulate the Florida Supreme Court. The court is supposed to be independent from the other branches, but it appears the governor and some elements of the legislature want to stack the deck. It should also be remembered that the Florida Legislature is known nationally as being ethically challenged. Once can only wonder how many non-governmental tasks the governors staff and the legislative staff do for their elected bosses. This action stinks of dirty politics and every citizen of Florida needs to let the governor and the Legislature know to keep their hands off the Florida Supreme Court and respect the separation of the branches of government.Roger B. Krieger Beverly HillsPublic wrongedI am shaking my head as I read the paper (July 7) about the CEO of Citrus Memorial getting a huge retirement payout. I was shaking my head the other day when the paper reported that the CEO of Progress Energy was going to receive a huge payout. Both of these companies are and have been ill-directed, and yet the management finds it perfectly alright to pay off the head honchos who chose the incorrect path not only for the company but the people who use the facilities. There are many complaints about the hospitals handling of emergency care and funding. The hospital doesnt even have enough money to pay for all of its services and is in debt. That same situation goes for Progress Energy, with the exception that the company has been billing customers 12 percent on their bills to build a new venue in Levy County that will probably never be built. It is most certainly a concern for many folks struggling to pay their bills to read of these gross lack of concern for the public to hand over extra payouts for executives who only care about themselves and not the people who they are supposed to be serving. It is about time that big companies stopped paying off their executives and let them retire on the pensions or 401Ks they have earned like everyone else. I am still shaking my head, because I know that this is just me letting steam off and my thoughts on this issue will absolutely go nowhere. Just a lot of other folks like me feeling the same way. Just for the record, I am mad as hell and I dont want to take it anymore. Patricia Maynard HernandoNo more negativityI am a Democrat. Since moving to Citrus County seven years ago, it has been something I have not broadcast freely. I listen to all the vitriol, hatred and animosity from people who have their conservative beliefs. I just dont get it. How does all this hatred fit in with believing you should treat your neighbor as yourself? Does everyone actually hate themselves as much as they do others? Im even more surprised when I find out people, who need the most help from other people, feel the same way about this president as the rich self-entitled people do. The most vocal people I know have yet to return their Social Security checks or give up getting Medicare in order to prove their point. To me its all hot air, spewed by people who are being led by their general malcontent at what is going on in their lives and need someone else to blame. It is a shame Democrats (in this county) are disappearing. Ive been involved in politics since my kids were in school. Whether its the PTA, HOA or any other organization, there are politics involved. On a grand scale like our government, the stakes and anger are much higher. Speaking only for myself, I choose not to spend my time in negativity, name-calling and selfrighteousness. Republicans are entitled to their beliefs. Dont expect me to agree with you, nor will I fight with you over it.Sheila Jacobs LecantoParkway vs. U.S. 19Sorry, Chris Van Ormer, Chroniclestaff writer, widening of U.S. 19 is not what we all support. In fact, I believe you will find a minority in support of it. What you will find is a split. Those who believe the (Suncoast) parkway should be extended, but abandoned because of opposition for environmental and selfish reasons; those who agree with widening it; and those who believe, notwithstanding ever increasing use, it should be left as is. Most of us who live in Homosassa and many Crystal River residents believe the parkway should be extended without delay. Please restudy it and report your findings to the citizens, the county and state. We want the parkway extension, since a significant majority of our traffic from the south is via U.S. 98, not U.S. 19, thus eliminating traffic throughout Homosassa and Crystal River. Im an environmentalist, but widening 19 is costly, short term and, I believe, provides little environmental benefits over that of extending the parkway.Frances Harbin HomosassaEditors note: The quoted material in the July 16 story was from this paragraph: An item of great concern is the widening of (U.S.) 19, which we all support, Im sure, but only to the extent it does not affect either runway, said Tom Davis, Crystal River Airports manager, speaking Thursday (July 12) to the Citrus County Aviation Advisory Board. Letters to theEDITOR Values diminishedWhen did an exaggeration of the truth become not a lie? And if it is a lie, when did it become OK for the next leader of the free world to spend millions of dollars telling that lie? Did the rules change and someone forgot to tell me about it? When they get in office, will they stop lying, or does this carry over into everything they say and do? Is it now OK for the people elected to public office to make rules and regulations that apply to you and me but not to them? Do you believe that its OK to do or say anything if it will further your cause? What has happened to the values that we used to value? Are you a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, a liberal, a conservative or are you an American? When was the last time you checked something out for yourself instead of listening to the talking heads? How many times have I heard someone say, I dont discuss politics or religion? Well, why not? There are very few things in this world that affect your life more than these two things. If you dont know enough about it to discuss it, then learn. If you cant or wont learn, please dont vote and also please dont reproduce. The minority opinion rules because it is the vocal opinion and believes that anything they can say or do to further their cause is justified. The only way that this will ever change is for the majority to put their differences aside and do what is right based on the values that our forefathers gave us in the Constitution. Did you notice I said discuss, and not argue? Any fool can argue, but a discussion is based on facts and mutual respect. Too few people even bother to vote, and if we all think its a done deal, then it is a done deal. We are sheep being led to the slaughter. If you want to soar with the eagles, you have to stop hanging out with the turkeys.W. J. (Jack) Fowler HomosassaConsent of the governedSome Americans foolishly believe the consent to govern is determined by the federal government, and independent of each other, the executive, judicial and legislative branches believe this, too. These members take an oath to support the Constitution, but do they? The Supreme Court declared the discretion of the federal agents to be sovereign over the states when they ruled on the Arizona immigration laws, effectively making the Ninth and 10th Amendments irrelevant. They forgot The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. The National Defense Authorization Act and its amendments grant enormous powers to the president. This act will deny Americans the fundamental rights enshrined in the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and 14th Amendments, and it will subvert civilian authority over the military. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg prefers the South African Constitution to the U.S. Constitution because she prefers to bequeath rights instead of protecting them, and Chief Justice John Roberts just granted enormous unconstitutional power to the federal government. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) originated in the Senate; it passed using reconciliation. Labeling it a tax bill, makes it unconstitutional. Article 1, Section 7 states: All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives. The Constitution is also clear on what types of taxation can be imposed. The PPACA does not fall under any enumerated category. Additionally, PPACA, with its hundreds of power-transferring provisions, will also transfer to the executive branch departments and agencies unconstitutional powers to interpret, define, execute and legislate many of its nebulous provisions, effectively barring Congress from any further legislative actions and/or input. How can the House of Representatives approve funding if the legislation did not originate in the House, and it is not a constitutional tax? Government is out of control. We need to remind our government that it was instituted to protect our rights and our property, and That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed....Edna Mattos HernandoInfluencing oil pricesFor the benefit of those who are naive enough to think the president of these United States can control the price of gas, should give some serious thought as to whether or not to vote in our upcoming election in November. Having been involved in the transportation of oil (crude and refined products) most of my 40-plus years of going to sea, and I might add in the capacity of chief officer in large oceangoing crude carriers gives me the knowledge and expertise to have an understanding of much of what goes on in this industry. You can rest assured that these oil companies on a worldwide scale are controlled by none other than the oil cartel, which includes the Mideast oil producers. These oil producers are very sophisticated at what they do and are for the most part in control. I will admit that the Wall Street stockbrokers do have an influence from time to time in some of the price fluctuation, but this also can and often is brought on by the actions of the oil companies. There is a story to be told and Im dreadfully sorry that a large percentage of our citizens are so ill-informed as to what goes on with the oil companies. I would urge you, American citizen, to get involved and vote, but please know who and what youre voting for. It is my opinion that our democracy is in jeopardy and is in need of not Republicans or Democrats, but Americans!Earl Herring retired member of the International Masters, Mates & Pilots Beverly HillsRelease all recordsA number of Democrats have been in the news demanding Gov. (Mitt) Romney release more or all of his federal tax returns. Among the more notable are Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. I feel it is a fair request. However, all elected members of Congress should have to release the past 12 years of their federal tax returns first and it should be required going forward as long as they are in office. So far, only 17 of the 535 members of Congress have released their tax returns. What are they hiding? These people introduce and vote on legislation that could have a positive or negative effect on their investments and or family holdings. Thus this information should be available to the voting public. Some have used this information to their personal advantage in the past. In addition to Congress releasing personal information, I feel President Obama should release information about his past that he has sealed to keep it from the public. This information should include college records and papers from Occidental, Columbia and Harvard. The information would show what classes he took, his thoughts at that time, professors that may have influenced him and how well he performed in class. Also medical records, law practice client records, Illinois state senate records and many more which he has sealed from the public. Past presidents have released their records or the news media has been able to find them. This leads to the question, what is President Obama hiding? Also, why hasnt the news media asked or been able to find this information? It leads you to think that todays reporters arent as qualified as their predecessors or they are much more biased than in the past. They may also tell us only what they what us to know. These people want all of this information about the man running for president; however, we dont know very much about the man who is currently president. Yet this doesnt bother these people even though our economy and our freedoms are going down the tubes.Bob Balogh Homosassa LETTERS GUIDELINES Read policies regarding letters to the editor on Page A12 today.

Police: Naked man flees hospital, steals JeepMAYSVILLE, Ky. Police in northeastern Kentucky said a naked man bolted from a hospital in Maysville and stole a Jeep before fleeing to Ohio where he stole some clothing. Maysville Police Sgt. Chris Neal said 34-yearold Justin Young didnt want to stay for treatment at Meadowview Regional Medical Center on Thursday, so he fled into a nearby corn field. Neal told The Ledger Independent that Young took a Jeep from a farm and drove to Ohio. Once there, Neal said, Young went into a home and took some clothing. Neal said Young left the Jeep behind at the home near Ripley, Ohio. Neal said a felony theft warrant has been issues for Young stemming from his taking the Jeep.Deputies: N.M. brother admits robbing sisterGALLUP, N.M. A New Mexico man is facing charges after sheriffs deputies said he confessed to robbing his sister. The Gallup Independent reported 25-year-old Joshua Malone was booked this week on burglary charges in connection with a break-in at the Thoreau home of Jamy Malone. According to the McKinley County Sheriffs Office, Jamy Malone told deputies someone had used a rock to break a window and steal a number of items, including a 32-inch flat-screen television, a laptop computer, two Navajo rugs, DVDs and a Navajo basket. She told deputies her brother later called her to admit that he stole the items. The brother said he sold some of the items at a truck stop. It was unclear if he had an attorney.Louisville man charged with stealing book on ethicsLOUISVILLE, Ky. University of Louisville police said a Prospect man is getting a tough lesson on ethics that probably cant be found in a book. The Courier-Journal reported that campus police arrested Terry J. Davis on Wednesday and charged him with stealing a textbook called Resolving Ethical Issues from the University of Louisvilles Health Sciences Center. Police say Davis later tried to sell the book to Grays College Bookstore in Louisville. The arrest report said surveillance video cameras captured the theft and attempt to sell the book.Minn. bikini parade falls far short of recordMADISON LAKE, Minn. Only an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny number of bikini-wearers turned out to strut their stuff in a southern Minnesota town. Organizers had hoped for hundreds of women to march Saturday in what was billed as the Worlds Largest Bikini Parade. But the number of bikini-wearing women and a couple of men in bikini tops at the Paddlefish Days Parade in Madison Lake fell far short of the world record. The (Mankato, Minn.) Free Press reported Saturday the number appeared to be 39. Women were told they could wear shorts over their bikini bottoms once it was clear the record of 451 was unattainable. A majority of City Council members opposed the bikini parade. Some said it was inconsistent with the festivals family-oriented nature.Polish sea resort giving sand away for freeWARSAW, Poland Too busy for a vacation, but long for a beach? Try Poland. Authorities said the pure, light sand in the town of Leba in the countrys north is up for grabs after moving dunes in Slowinski National Park started to clog up the beach and local waterways. Leba tourism official Pawel Dabrowski said Thursday that the sand is getting into a canal leading into the towns picturesque port, and constantly needs to be dredged out at high cost. He said the sand is for free, except for a 82 zloty ($24) administrative fee for trucks.Man charged for refusing to leave N.C. jailWENTWORTH, N.C. A man whod just been released from jail in northern North Carolina was arrested again for refusing to leave the jail after authorities wouldnt give him a ride to a motel. The News & Record of Greensboro reported 37-year-old Rodney Dwayne Valentine was charged with trespassing. Valentine was released from the Rockingham County jail Saturday morning after being behind bars since May 22. The sheriffs office said he asked them to drive him to a local motel and they refused. Deputies charged Valentine with second-degree trespassing when he had refused to leave the jail by Saturday afternoon.

Page A12MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 Those left behindThe disparity between Chinas Communist Party and democracy in United States is narrowing. The impact of corporations and banks in both countries is beginning to disrupt the normal proceedings as to how a county views itself. The gap between the haves and have-nots in both countries is widening. In 2010, China experienced 127,000 demonstrations throughout the country over the widening gaps. The politburo and key leaders of the party are all rich. Those who have power within the party are known to accept bribes and kickbacks, thus allowing the corporations and banks the power to build construction sites such as low-wage factories, skyscrapers, dams, railroads and to force the peasants (have-nots) off their land without any kind of compensation. This same displacement of people in our country isnt as dramatic as what we see in China. China has a population of 1.5 billion people, most of which are peasants. Peasant is a term that applies to the agricultural poor. The United States population is 300 million. The term peasant has never been used in the United States. Although what is happening to this very low class, such as people sleeping under bridges, on park benches and in tents, and having to beg for money, puts them in a class similar to the Chinese peasant. The U.S. Congress is similar to the Chinese politburo. Our congressmen and senators allow lobbyists into the Capitol building to write their own legislation. Like the Chinese politburo, these American legislators accept bribes and kickbacks. How does an elected person who makes $174,000 a year become a millionaire? The politicians have given carte blanche to the corporations allowing them to destroy our environment and the middle class. China presently is outshining the United States, but for how long? There is no question the Chinese have-nots will rise up against their leaders. What will happen in the United States? As a nation, we will continue to decline as long as our voters live in their man caves with a refrigerator full of beer and a giant TV set on all-day football.L.M. Eastman LecantoDrink pricesIn the past couple of weeks, I had the occasion to visit three restaurants I used to visit on a regular basis because each served a particular meal that I enjoyed. Two of these restaurants had been totally remodeled in the last six weeks, and all three, at lunchtime, were mostly empty. The items I enjoy at each establishment have increased in price, just as groceries have. That is to be expected. However, the cost of iced tea and soft drinks had increased more than 100 percent. I dont understand why a glass of soda or iced tea is $1.95 when a whole liter of cola is less than a dollar, and tea bags cost about 3 cents apiece. When you add 20 percent for the tip and 40 cents more in taxes, you end up paying $2.35 for a glass of tea or soda. Accordingly, my new policy when dining out is that any cost over a dollar for coffee, tea or a soft drink will be deducted from my tip. Let the business owner pay their staff a fair wage.Ellen Bass Floral City Am I my brothers keeper? Genesis 4:9Afew words about the tragedy in Aurora, Colo.: In Dark Knight Triumphant, the second chapter of a four-part Batman graphic novel, there is an incident in which a goggle-eyed, mentally disturbed young man with orange hair shoots up a movie theater. Three people are killed. That scene, published in 1986, carries a new and frightful resonance now. How could it not? The week before last in Aurora, a goggle-eyed and perhaps mentally disturbed young man with orange hair allegedly shot up a theater playing a midnight showing of the new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. A dozen people were killed, 58 wounded. Life imitates art imitating life. That graphic novel was a sensation far beyond the comic book shops. Rolling Stone noted its bold thematic twists. The Los Angeles Timescalled it a vivid psychological study. The Washington Postpraised its edgy realism. Writer and artist Frank Miller pictured an aged Batman coming out of retirement to save a Gotham City overrun by nihilistic terrorists. Batmans town had become a lawless place where the good people were cowed mute by fear. It was a new take on the ancient central conceit of the American superhero myth. Meaning the idea that we are watched over from the rooftops above by a man (or woman) with powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men and women, a capable somebody who will fight what we cannot. Look! Up in the sky! Its a bird, its a plane, its somebody who will see that the bad thing doesnt happen and that the bad people get whats coming to them, somebody who will, just when things look hopeless, save us. Lord knows we could use some saving. Could have used it at Columbine and at Virginia Tech. Could have used it in Tucson. Could have used it in Aurora. You know what happened there, of course. How a man left the theater and returned through the exit door wearing body armor. How he threw smoke grenades. How he started shooting. In a place of escapism, where people had gone to enjoy the fantasy of a man who could fight what we cannot, bedlam broke loose and chaos reigned. As, periodically, they must. In a gunbesotted nation where the right of each citizen to possess as many weapons of mass destruction as he or she wants is considered sacred and inviolable, who can expect otherwise? We are all vulnerable, always. And yet, vulnerability is not surrender. That awful night in Aurora, Jonathan Blunk, a 26-year-old Navy veteran, shielded his girlfriend from bullets with his own body. He died. Matt McQuinn, 27 and Alex Teves, 24, also shielded their girlfriends. They died, too. Stephanie Davis, 21 years old, dropped down to the floor where Allie Young, 19, was bleeding out from a bullet wound to the neck. Allie told her to run, but Stephanie wouldnt. She stayed there, applying pressure to the wound even as the gunman kept shooting. Both young women survived. In an instant, called upon to be heroes, ordinary people in an ordinary suburb became exactly that. Frank Miller wrote about a vigilante who came back to save the people. We cannot know if that inspired the man in Colorado you will not read his name here to do what police say he did or whether his inspiration came from something else equally senseless. What we can know is that in the awful moment of decision, people covered one another, took care of one another, saved one another. It is the single hopeful note from the carnage of that evening, the one example worth holding and cherishing and carrying forward from this awful time, not least because it gives the lie to that central conceit of the American superhero myth. You see, heroes dont come from above.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for the Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL, 33132. Readers may contact him at lpitts@miamiherald.com.

Medicaid also assists aged and disabled people with the costs of nursing-facility care and other medical expenses. Eligibility for Medicaid is usually based on a familys or individuals income and assets. Earlier this year, the state presented Citrus County with a bill for $844,000 for what it said was the countys share of unpaid Medicaid expenses stretching back to the year 2001. That figure included a 15 percent discount from the original sum of $1.1 million. Thats a big number, but nowhere near the amounts demanded of some neighboring counties. After some pretty vigorous pushback, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), Floridas Medicaid program administrator, reviewed all the data again and recently announced new, reduced bills to the counties. The exact numbers will be issued Aug. 1, and the counties have until Sept. 1 to accept or contest them. If a county accepts the revised number, it earns a 15 percent discount, bringing the total down further. Statewide, it was revealed the counties had been overbilled by about $200 million, more than half of what AHCA originally said they owed. Citrus Countys new number dropped nearly 30 percent, to less than $608,000, and may possibly be as low as about $516,000 with the discount. Payments will actually be withholdings from the states revenue sharing over the next 36 months. While its good news that the numbers have become more manageable, its still clear the system is flawed. AHCA identified several major reasons for the changes. The largest by far, representing almost half the dollar volume, was address adjustments, or those claims for which ACHA could not verify the county of residence based on information in the system. This was also the major issue cited by counties disputing the original assessments. The counties had complained they did not have database resources to verify addresses before submitting Medicaid bills. One positive step was recently taken, allowing counties access to the residency information maintained by the Department of Children and Families, which acts as ACHAs agent by enrolling people in Medicaid. With this resource, county officials can eliminate duplications and errors at the front end of the process. The entire episode demonstrates that its better to do things right the first time. Especially with a severely strained budget, the state cannot tolerate this kind of sloppiness and waste from state agencies. While Citrus County devoted the time of two employees to the investigative process, some other counties had to hire outside help to sort through the morass of records for the past 10-plus years. Theres no such thing as a good excuse for such poor performance. THE ISSUE:State review of disputed Medicaid bill lowers cost to county.OUR OPINION:Welcome news, but the system still neeeds fixing.

We have the same problem, but its not from cats. Its from a neighbors dog, except he doesnt dig up flowerbeds. He cant stand walking in wet grass, so if it has rained, he goes over onto the neighbors sidewalks and driveways and does it there. You try to walk down your sidewalk and have to watch every step you take, to avoid stepping in his poop. Our neighbor admits its his, but says that its not even as large as a golf ball, so why should it bother anybody? Well, just try walking out there in the dark with a pair of thong shoes on and see if it bothers anybody. But she doesnt care. We used to throw it away, but now we just throw it over into her flowerbeds to fertilize her plants.

Panetta to Mideast; Syria high on agendaU.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta began a fiveday Mideast trip Sunday to consult with the new Islamist leaders of Tunisia and Egypt and to meet with longstanding allies Israel and Jordan. High on the agenda at each stop is expected to be the accelerating crisis in Syria, which potentially has grave implications for Israel. The Jewish state fears the unrest will spill over the border and that the long-quiet Golan Heights, captured from Syria in 1967, will become a new Islamist front against Israel. Panettas press secretary, George Little, said the trip is intended to affirm a U.S. commitmentto stability in the Middle East and North Africa at a time the U.S. military is shifting more of its attention to Asia. In Tunis, Panetta plans to meet with his Tunisian counterpart as well as President Moncef Marzouki, whose moderate Islamist Ennahda Party had been banned under the previous government.

From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Page A14MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressJERUSALEM Standing on Israeli soil, U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the Jewish state and said the United States has a solemn duty and a moral imperative to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability. Make no mistake, the ayatollahs in Iran are testing our moral defenses. They want to know who will object and who will look the other way, he said. We will not look away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and commitment to Israel. The presidential election hovered over the speech. The Old City formed a made-for-television backdrop behind Romney, while some of his campaign donors listened in the audience. Romneys declaration that Jerusalem is Israels capital was matter-of-fact and in keeping with claims made by Israeli governments for decades, even though the United States, like other nations, maintains its embassy in Tel Aviv. He did not say if he would order the embassy moved if he wins the White House, but strongly suggested so in a CNN interview. My understanding is the policy of our nation has been a desire to move our embassy ultimately to the capital (Jerusalem), he said, adding, I would only want to do so and to select the timing in accordance with the government of Israel. His remarks on the subject during his speech drew a standing ovation from his audience, which included Sheldon Adelson, the American businessman who has said he will donate millions to Romneys campaign. Romneys embrace of Israel was on display throughout the day when he met with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and other leaders. He also visited the Western Wall, Judaisms holiest site, where he was mobbed by worshippers. In addition, Romney met with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. In his remarks, Romney steered clear of overt criticism of President Barack Obama, even though he said the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran has only become worse in the past five years. Israel is the second of three stops on an international trip for Romney in the weeks before he claims the Republican nomination at his partys national convention in Tampa, Fla. A stop in Poland will complete his trip. Associated PressRepublican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov.

In Israel, Romney pledges US commitment Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian tanks and artillery pounded rebelheld neighborhoods inthe commercial hub of Aleppo on Sunday in a bid to retake control as President Bashar Assads regime accused regional powerhouses Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey of trying to destroy the country. Activists say opposition fighters control large swathes of territory across Syrias largest city. The government has been struggling for a week to beat back their assault and stem the tide of recent rebel advances in the civil war. The head of the main opposition group, the Syrian National Council, called for international help in arming the rebels to face the regimes heavy weaponry, particularly tanks. If the international community cannot act, they should support the opposition with anti-tanks missiles and anti-aircraft rockets, Abdel Basset Sida told the Gulf News during a stopover in Abu Dhabi. We seek international supporters to arm our uprising against the regime. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have expressed willingness to help fund the rebels and they are believed to be funneling money through Turkey to the opposition, which is using it to purchase arms and equipment. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem railed against interference by the regions Sunni powers in a rare public criticism of his Middle East neighbors. He accused them of supporting the rebels at the behest of Israel. Israel is the mastermind of all in this crisis, he said during a news conference in Tehran. They (Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey) are fighting in the same front.

Olympians statuesque bodies a reminder of flagging fitness Associated Press LONDON Weve all been there before. Walking down the street or shopping for a shirt when we find ourselves chest-to-belt buckle with some impossibly tall, muscled platinum member of the human race whose inescapable physical perfection reminds us that its been a few days er, weeks uh, months since we hit the gym. At glittering Westfield Mall on the edge of Olympic Park, uncomfortable encounters between muscle and mush are remarkably frequent. At least here the Adonises wear team uniforms, so theres no mistaking them for regular people who are simply much more fit than you. These are Olympians. No wonder they look better than the rest of us. Still, its hard to hold back feelings of inferiority, whether you are a girthful Londoner, a pasty journalist or one of the multitudes of candy apple-shaped tourists who have come from around the world to witness the games. Flabbiness knows no borders. Its intimidating, said Richard Perry, a Londoner buying a soft, sugared concoction at the malls Mr. Pretzel concession stand Saturday as two mammoth Australian Olympians strutted past. Its like they are from a different planet. Indeed, the superhuman bodies of many of the men and women competing in the games are a stark reminder of how far the rest of us have fallen. The host country may be expecting a record haul of gold medals, but its people really pack on the British pounds. This is the fattest country in Europe, with a quarter of the population officially obese. A 2009 study found one in six Britons were too lazy to get up to change the channel if they couldnt find the remote, and would instead continue watching a program they were not interested in. Americans are even more overweight: More than a third of adults are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The average American logs four hours a day in front of the television, not to mention time spent online or texting friends. Perry, the pretzel purchaser, said he was cautiously optimistic the Games would inspire him to shed his modest paunch. Others were unmoved. They look great, gushed Lucy Harley, a young Apple Store employee who insisted she was comfortable with her average level of fitness and realistic about her laziness. If I wanted to look like that, I would dedicate more time to sport, she shrugged, making it clear she wasnt about to. Some athletes who were window-shopping as they waited for events to begin were happy to share advice and words of comfort with the mushy multitudes. In some sports, like weightlifting, we even have fat athletes, offered Marouane Mrabet, a lean Tunisian volleyballer who was sampling some massage cream. He said anybody who wanted to get in shape should work out for half an hour a day, and insisted they would notice a difference in their physique very quickly. Just dont expect to look like an Olympian. For an athlete? No. Thirty minutes is not enough, he laughed. This is nothing.

The superhuman bodies of many of the men and women competing in the games can be a stark reminder of how far the rest of us have fallen.

Associated PressLONDON The hiccups outnumbered the highlights, and for a while the U.S. racked up fouls faster than points. The opener wasnt artistic. However, it was enough easily enough. Kevin Durant scored 22 points in his Olympic debut, Kevin Love added 14 and LeBron James had eight assists as the American mens basketball team overcame some sloppy moments with a 98-71 win Sunday over France. We know everybody else expects us to win by 40 points, said Carmelo Anthony. For us, a wins a win. We expect every game to be like this one. Seeking a second straight gold medal to match the redemptive one they captured in Beijing four years ago, the Americans expected a tough test from a French team featuring San Antonio guard Tony Parker and five other NBA players. And although the U.S. was never in real SPORTS BRIEFSN. Koreas Park wins Evian Masters by two shotsEVIAN-LES-BAINS, France Inbee Park of South Korea ended her four-year wait for an LPGA Tour title when she shot a 6under 66 on Sunday to win the Evian Masters, beating veteran Karrie Webb and overnight co-leader Stacy Lewis by two shots. It was Parks second LPGA Tour title and the first since the U.S. Open in 2008. She finished with a 17-under 271. It feels great. It was four years ago but it feels longer than that, Park said. I finished the round with some really strong putting today. The 24-year-old Park made birdies on the last three holes to coast home. After yesterday, a lot of players were in contention so I knew I had to shoot a good score out there, Park said. The greens were a lot quicker than the last five years. I like the fast greens, so I think that really suited me as well. Lewis, who shared the overnight lead with Park, made a run at the end, but her long putt for eagle on the 18th came too late. I actually played really good. I had probably four or five putts that I thought I made and just lipped out, said Lewis, who was runner-up last year to Japans Ai Miyazato, also by two shots. Its huge for me, because I didnt play well yesterday, didnt play my best today, and still I was right there.Fred Couples wins close Senior British Open in ScotlandTURNBERRY, Scotland Fred Couples won the Senior British Open by two strokes over Gary Hallberg on Sunday after holing a 25-foot putt to finish with consecutive birdies. The 1992 Masters champion shot a 3-under 67 in the final round to finish at 9-under 271 on the Ailsa course and win his first tournament in Britain. Hallberg shot a 66, equaling the best round of the day with American Mark Calcavecchia and Carl Mason. English pair Barry Lane (69) and Mason and American Dick Mast (67) had a share of third at 4 under. Overnight leader Bernhard Langer dropped five shots in five holes on the way home to shoot a 75 and slip into a tie for sixth. Ive never won an Open Championship, so this is the next best thing. And I believe I now get into the (British) Open at Muirfield next year, which is great, Couples said. It was a fun day out there. Bernhard and I were neck and neck for a long time. Then I saw Gary had birdied the 17th to draw level, so I knew I needed to birdie 17. I hit a couple of great shots down 17 and two-putted for birdie, then the hole got in the way for my birdie putt at 18. Its my biggest senior tour win by far on a truly great golf course. I can now say I won the Senior British Open at Turnberry in really challenging weather.From wire reports Inbee Park Olympics/ B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B4 Lottery numbers/B4 Entertainment/ B6 Classifieds/ B8 Tampa Bay Rays beat Angels in Los Angeles/ B3 SPORTSSection BMONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Fourth win for Johnson Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Jimmie Johnson stamped another exclamation point on his racing resume, winning his fourth career Brickyard 400 with a dominant drive at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday. With the victory, Johnson joined Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon as the only NASCAR drivers to win four times at the historic 2.5-mile track, which has hosted stock car racing since 1994. Four wins? Im at a loss for words, Johnson said in victory lane. Kyle Busch finished second, followed by Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Gordon. Polesitter Denny Hamlin was sixth. It was a rough day for Matt Kenseth, who came into Sundays race with the Sprint Cup Series points lead but was taken out of the race in a late collision with Joey Logano. Johnson also won the Brickyard in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Theyre that good, and they deserve it, Gordon said. The victory puts Johnson among some legendary names in the historic tracks record books. Gordon is the only other fourtime Brickyard 400 winner. Only three drivers have won four Indianapolis 500s: A.J. Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears; Mears was one of Johnsons racing heroes growing up. Formula One ace Michael Schumacher won the U.S. Grand Prix five times on Indys road course configuration.

Chasing the gold Associated PressAmerican center Tyson Chandler, left, hangs on the hoop in front of French center Ronny Turiaf during the mens basketball preliminary round Group A match between the United States and France on Sunday in London. Associated PressLONDON Payback. This time, it was France chasing down the United States and Ryan Lochte, no less to win another riveting relay at the Olympics. With Michael Phelps looking much stronger than he did the night before, the Americans built a commanding lead over the first three legs of the 400meter freestyle relay Sunday and never really had to worry about the defending world champions from Australia. When Lochte dove into the water on the anchor leg, he was a half-body length ahead of the field and looking to add another gold to his dominating victory Saturday in the 400 individual medley. Not so fast. Or, should we say, not nearly fast enough. Yannick Agnel, playing the chaser role that Jason Lezak did for the Americans four years ago in this same event, sliced through the water and was right on Lochtes shoulder as they made the flip at the far end of the pool. With about 25 meters to go, they were stroke for stroke. But Lochte, who had already competed in 1,200 meters of racing over the first two days, simply didnt have US men rout France 98-71 in basketball French get revenge for 2008 relay loss See BASKETBALL/ Page B8 Associated PressFrances Yannick Agnel, right, and American Ryan Lochte compete in the mens 4x100-meter freestyle relay final Sunday at the Aquatics Centre in London.

One big par at the end made him a winner Sunday at the Canadian Open. Piercy won for the second time in his career when he closed with a 3under 67, and William McGirt and Robert Garrigus stumbled on the closing stretch at Hamilton Golf & Country Club to finish a stroke back. McGirt, atop the leaderboard for much of the final round, had his first three-putt bogey of the week on the 15th hole when he ran a 45-foot putt some 15 feet by the hole. Tied for the lead playing the 18th, he put his approach into the bunker and blasted out to 18 feet, missing the par putt that would have forced a playoff. McGirt closed with a 69. Garrigus, the 54-hole leader, missed six putts inside 8 feet. The last one was the most costly. He three-putted from long range just off the green on the 16th, missing an 8footer for par that left him one shot behind. He missed a 15-foot birdie See PIERCY/ Page B4 Fred Couples

Associated PressLONDON Five things to know about Sunday, Day 2 of the London Olympics: Whoa! North Korean lifts three times body weight for gold. Niger rower inspires Olympic crowd. Organizers turn to troops, teachers and students to fill empty seats. Durant leads U.S. past France in hoops opener. Rhode wins recordbreaking skeet gold for U.S. North Koreas Om Yun Chol said he wanted to lift a big weight and make the other athletes nervous. He definitely nailed that strategy. Om, standing all of 5 feet and 123 pounds, won a gold medal by confidently lifting an Olympic-record 370 pounds in the clean and jerk at the London Games. Only a handful of people have lifted more than three times their body weight, and this one came out of nowhere. Om was in the B group with lower-ranked competitors and lifted weights of 160 and 165 kilograms on his first two attempts early in the day. He got the crowd roaring when it was announced he would go for 168 kilograms the Olympic record. Among the few lifters who have cleared three times their body weight are Halil Mutlu and Naim Suleymanoglu, also of Turkey, known as the Pocket Hercules. A rower from Niger also captivated an Olympic crowd on Sunday when he trudged to the finish in last place in a single sculls repechage. With the packed grandstand cheering him on at Dorney Lake, 35-year-old Hamadou Djibo Issaka pushed though the pain and found enough energy to finish nearly 1 minute, 40 seconds behind the winner. After hearing the finishing horn, he slumped over in his boat, totally spent. After a few seconds, he lifted his head and saluted the crowd while wearing a wide grin. Djibo Issaka learned how to row only three months ago and has a technique that can generously be described as crude. He received a wild card from the IOC Tripartite Commission, which allows each National Olympic Committee to enter up to five athletes for the Summer Games. It went well, he said in French to The Associated Press. I passed the finish line. It was great. First lady Michelle Obama was part of a big crowd that watched the U.S. mens basketball team open tournament play with a 9871 win over France. Kevin Durant scored 22 points and LeBron James finished with nine points, eight assists and five rebounds. It wasnt perfect, said James, who had nine points, eight assists and five rebounds. Weve still got room for improvement. Kimberly Rhode also put on a show at the Royal Artillery Barracks, winning the gold medal in womens skeet shooting to become the first American to take an individual-sport medal in five consecutive Olympics. Rhode tied the world record and set an Olympic mark with 99 points. She also set an Olympic record in qualifying, missing only one of her 75 shots. The rest of the Olympic action Sunday:SWIMMINGThis was one sweet victory for France. Yannick Agnel rallied the French to the gold medal in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay, pulling ahead of American star Ryan Lochte on the final lap. France clocked 3 minutes, 9.93 seconds, and the Americans settled for silver in 3:10.38. Russia took bronze in 3:11.41. Pre-race favorite Australia was fourth. It was revenge for the French, who lost a close race to the Americans in Beijing four years ago. U.S. star Michael Phelps still won the 17th Olympic medal of his career and first silver to go along with 14 golds and two bronzes. Hes one away from tying the mark for most career medals held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. Dana Vollmer had a triumphant return to the Olympics, setting a world record while winning gold in the 100 butterfly. The American was third at the turn but powered to the wall for a time of 55.98 seconds. Vollmer, who made the Olympics as a 16-year-old in 2004, was a huge disappointment when she failed to make the team for Beijing in 2008. Camille Muffat of France edged American Allison Schmitt by less than half a stroke to win the 400 freestyle, and South Africas Cameron van der Burgh set a world record to win the 100 breaststroke.GYMNASTICSThe U.S. women had the top score in qualifying, but the big story was world champion Jordyn Wieber. Wieber, a heavy favorite, is out of the all-around competition after finishing behind teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas. Countries are limited to two gymnasts in the allaround and event finals. The 17-year-old Wieber was sobbing as she made her way past reporters, so distraught she couldnt speak to them. A quote attributed to her and distributed by the London Games internal news agency said: It is a bit of a disappointment. It has always been a dream of mine to compete in the all-around final of the Olympics. Russia, runner-up to the Americans at last years world championships, was 1.4 points back with a score of 180.429. Beijing Olympics champion China was third (176.637), followed by European champion Romania (176.264) and Britain (170.656).TENNISMaria Sharapova won her Olympic debut indoors, beating Shahar Peer of Israel 6-2, 6-0, and Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and David Ferrer were among the seeded winners on the mens side at Wimbledon. Playing under Wimbledons retractable roof on Centre Court because of rain, No. 3 Sharapova served well, returned aggressively and swept the final eight games. Sharapova carried the Russian flag in the opening ceremony after missing the 2008 Olympics because of a shoulder injury. Play was curtailed because of rain, with 32 matches postponed before they started and four suspended in progress. Only 12 matches were completed.VOLLEYBALLSo far, so good for the defending champion U.S. mens team, which opened Olympic play by sweeping Serbia behind Matt Andersons 18 points. Captain Clay Stanley added 13 points in the 25-17, 25-22, 25-21 victory at Earls Court. In early matches Sunday, Bulgaria swept Britain, 2518, 25-20, 26-24, and Russia defeated Germany 31-29, 2518, 25-17. Australia, coached by Jon Uriarte, lost to Argentina 25-21, 25-22, 25-20. Son Nicolas Uriarte is a setter on the Argentine team.EQUESTRIANZara Phillips, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, wowed the home crowd and a few relatives in her Olympic equestrian debut. The 31-year-old Phillips registered a slight mistake on her appropriately named horse, High Kingdom, and earned 46.1 penalty points at Greenwich Park, placing her 24th out of 74 riders with two disciplines to go in the eventing dressage competition. Her grandfather, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and her mother, Princess Anne, were in the VIP seats as Phillips put High Kingdom through the paces of a standard dressage test to demonstrate the horses obedience.BEACH VOLLEYBALLScattered showers sent fans at the picturesque Horse Guards Parade scurrying for shelter during the second day of the beach volleyball tournament, dampening what had been a festive mood but not deterring the second half of the field from making its 2012 Games debut. Emanuel Rego, a fivetime Olympian and defending world champion from Brazil, teamed with Alison Cerutti to beat Clemens Doppler and Alexander Horst 19-21, 21-17, 16-14. Elsa Baquerizo McMillan and Liliana Fernandez Steiner of Spain also rallied, edging Marleen van Iersel and Sanne Keizer of the Netherlands 14-21, 2116, 15-11. Defending gold medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser of the United States, and the No. 2 American womens team, April Ross and Jennifer Kessy, each won in straight sets.BOXINGFreddie Evans maintained Britains perfect start to its home Olympic boxing tournament with an 18-10 victory over Algerian welterweight Ilyas Abbadi. Evans earned a solid victory in the final bout of the afternoon session, delighting the sold-out crowd waving dozens of Union Jacks and giving repeated standing ovations. Custio Clayton earned Canadas first Olympic boxing victory in eight years with a 12-8 decision over Mexicos Oscar Molina. Frances Alexis Vastine beat German welterweight Patrick Wojcicki 16-12, and Thailands Saylom Ardee lost an agonizing decision to Kazakhstans Gain Zhailauov in the most entertaining early fights at ExCel. Dominican lightweight Wellington Arias was impressive in a 17-8 victory over Colombias Eduar Marriaga, but earned the dubious honor of facing Ukraines top-seeded Vasyl Lomachenko in the second round Thursday.BASKETBALLPau Gasol had 21 points and 11 rebounds to lead Spain to a 97-81 victory over China in their Olympic mens opener. Spain got off to a slow start and had a 19-17 lead at the end of the first quarter. But it went on a 7-0 run in the second quarter to grab a cushion and was never seriously challenged the rest of the game. Yi Jianlian of the Washington Wizards had 30 points and 12 rebounds for China.SOCCERPowerhouse Spain was eliminated, Brazil and Japan wrapped up spots in the quarterfinals and host Britain is back on track with one round of qualifying matches to go in the mens tournament. Spain was hoping to add Olympic gold to the World Cup and European Championship titles held by the countrys full national team. But it lost 1-0 to Honduras and is without a goal in the tournament heading into its last game against Morocco on Wednesday. Neymar set up two goals and scored from a free kick to help Brazil beat Belarus 3-1, and Japan forward Kensuke Nagai had an 84thminute goal to secure a 1-0 win over Morocco. Britain posted an emphatic 3-1 victory over United Arab Emirates that knocked the Middle Eastern team out of the tournament. Mexico rebounded from a first-round loss by beating Gabon 2-0. Two-time Olympic champion Uruguay lost 2-0 to Senegal. Egypt played to a 1-1 draw against New Zealand, while South Korea beat Switzerland 2-1.DIVINGWu Minxia and partner He Zi won the first diving gold medal of the Olympics, moving China one step closer to a sweep of the eight events in London. They led throughout the five-dive round and totaled 346.20 points in the 3-meter synchronized event. Abby Johnston and Kelci Bryant finished second with 321.90 points, ending Americas diving medal drought that extended to the 2000 Sydney Games. It was the first Olympic synchro medal for the U.S. China won seven of eight golds as the host country four years ago in Beijing and swept the golds at last years world championships in Shanghai. Emilie Heymans and Jennifer Abel earned the bronze with 316.80 for Canadas first medal of the games.CYCLINGMarianne Vos of the Netherlands won the gold medal in the womens road race in a rain-drenched sprint, leaving Britains Elizabeth Armitstead with silver and the host countrys first medal of the London Olympics. Vos, the former world champion, made a daring move past Russias Olga Zabelinskaya to emerge from the three-rider breakaway.

Troops, students, teachers to fill seats Associated PressLONDON Troops, teachers and students are getting free tickets to fill prime seats that were empty at some Olympic venues on the first full day of competition. Organizing chief Sebastian Coe answered widespread criticism Sunday by predicting that seats left unused, largely by Olympic and sports officials, will not be an issue as the games proceed. It is obvious, some of those seats are not being used in the early rounds, he said at a briefing. He declined to blame Olympic sponsors, whom he had earlier promised to name and shame if they did not use their allocations. Sponsors, including CocaCola and Visa, defended their use of allotted tickets 8 percent of the 8.8 million available tickets. The issue is sensitive for Olympic organizers and British sports fans after hundreds of thousands of people failed to get tickets in an initial public ballot. There is not a single person who thinks it is shambolic, Coe insisted, adding no one would object to free tickets for military personnel who stepped up to the mark this month to help solve a security staffing crisis at venues. Coes organizing team has long promised to fill venues and avoid a similar problem from the Beijing Olympics. He said he was jammed in shoulder to shoulder with Olympic officials to see swimming finals including the first Ryan LochteMichael Phelps duel on Saturday evening. He also pointed to record crowds lining the mens road race route, and for rowing events at Eton Dorney. Those venues are stuffed to the gunnels. The public are in there, Coe said. Yet broadcast images of signature Olympic events, such as gymnastics and swimming, revealed rows of empty seats for qualifying rounds Saturday. Tennis at Wimbledons Centre Court was sparsely attended just weeks after the Grand Slam event sold out. Army personnel attended gymnastics sessions Sunday morning at North Greenwich Arena during down time from security duties. There are a whole bunch of the military actually sitting in those seats at the moment. We can and we have moved them in there, Coe said. Students and teachers from east London neighborhoods also would get late calls for free tickets, having already been accredited in a planned reallocation program. Some ticket holders will get upgrades inside venues, Coe said. Some blame for the opening day embarrassment was falling on accredited people, including the Olympic family, athletes, and some sponsors and media, organizers said. Coe said it was typical at Olympics for sports and national team officials to be dragged to any number of venues, and be too busy to attend events in the opening days. I dont think you will be seeing this as an issue long term during the games. He went on to defend sponsors, whose legal rights to protect their brand at the Olympics often fuel criticism. I am not sure naming and shaming is what we are into at the moment. Sponsors are turning up, Coe said. Still, British Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt had said Saturday that no-shows were suspected to be corporate guests. We think it was accredited seats that belonged to sponsors, Hunt said. But if theyre not going to turn up, we want those tickets to be available for members of the public, because that creates the best atmosphere. Coca-Cola and Visa said they gave most of their allocated seats to prize winners in promotional offers. CocaCola said its competitions allowed people to choose the event they really wanted to attend. We have also invited some long-standing partners, employees, and customers to attend the games. We believe that usage levels of our tickets have been extremely high so far, the company said. Visa said it made great efforts to ensure that our ticket allocations are fully used. Organizers will use further tactics to boost attendance and offer more opportunities to see Olympic events. Releasing tickets for walk-up sales allowed for about 1,000 seats to be sold for gymnastics Saturday, and the Wimbledon policy of recycling tickets has been adopted. Coe said almost 300 people saw handball matches Saturday by buying cheap tickets 5 British pounds ($7.87) for adults, 1 pound ($1.57) for children which were handed in for resale by the original ticket holders on leaving the venue. Associated PressMembers of the military sit in unoccupied sponsors seats during the artistic gymnastics team qualification Sunday at the Summer Olympics in London. Organizing chief Sebastian Coe said troops and local students will be given tickets to fill empty seats at Olympic venues. OlympicsHIGHLIGHTS

WPHarrell, Fick. T:27. A,453 (40,981). Associated PressANAHEIM, Calif. Zack Greinke was outpitched by Jeremy Hellickson in his Los Angeles Angels debut, losing to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 Sunday. Obtained Friday from Milwaukee, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner allowed two runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out eight. Greinke (0-1), eligible for free agency after the season, was 9-3 with a 3.44 ERA in 21 starts with the Brewers. Hellickson (6-6) pitched two-hit ball through six innings, striking out five and walking none. Fernando Rodney got three outs for his 30th save in 31 attempts, tying Baltimores Jim Johnson for the AL lead. With runners on first and second, Rodney fell behind Albert Pujols 3-0 in the count before inducing a game-ending, double-play grounder.AMERICAN LEAGUEOrioles 6, Athletics 1BALTIMORE Rookie Wei-Yin Chen struck out a career-high 12, Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat Oakland to avoid a threegame sweep. It was a rare setback for the As, who fell to 18-4 this month. Chen (9-6) allowed one unearned run, three hits and four walks in 5 2-3 innings against a torrid Oakland team that had scored 40 runs in its previous four games.Rangers 2, White Sox 0ARLINGTON, Texas Scott Feldman tied a career high by pitching eight shutout innings, and Texas snapped a two-game skid with a victory over the Chicago White Sox. David Murphy had three hits, including a double, and Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz each scored a run. Feldman (5-6) gave up seven hits and retired eight of the last 10 batters he faced. He threw only 88 pitches in matching the eight shutout innings he tossed two other times, the last being June 2, 2010, also against the White Sox in Chicago.Tigers 4, Blue Jays 1TORONTO Jhonny Peralta hit two home runs, Doug Fister pitched eight innings and the Detroit Tigers beat Toronto to avert a three-game sweep. The Tigers had lost three in a row and four of five to fall out of the AL Central lead. Jose Valverde closed for his 20th save in 24 chances as Detroit avoided being swept in Toronto for the first time since Sept. 5-7, 2003.Twins 5, Indians 1MINNEAPOLIS Justin Morneau hit a two-run homer, Brian Duensing threw six smooth innings as a late fill-in for Francisco Liriano and the Minnesota Twins finished a three-game sweep of Cleveland. Duensing needed only 70 pitches to finish six frames and yield to the bullpen after scattering five singles without a walk.Mariners 7, Royals 6SEATTLE Felix Hernandez shook off a line drive to his left wrist and threw seven strong innings, and the Seattle Mariners beat Kansas City for a fourgame sweep. Seattle swept Kansas City in a fourgame set for the first time since May 2001.NATIONAL LEAGUEReds 7, Rockies 2DENVER The Cincinnati Reds posted their 10th straight win and matched their best streak in 14 years, with Mat Latos pitching eight strong innings and Drew Stubbs homering Sunday in a 7-2 victory over Colorado. The Reds winning streak is their longest since they took 10 in a row in 1998. They are two short of the franchise record. Jay Bruce also homered and Stubbs drove in three runs for the Reds, who have won 17 of 19.Astros 9, Pirates 5HOUSTON The Houston Astros ended their team-record losing streak at 12 games, beating Pittsburgh behind three hits and three RBIs from Marwin Gonzalez. Hours after Houston traded third baseman Chris Johnson to Arizona, Jordan Schafer homered and drove in three runs. Houston, a big league-worst 35-68, won for only the third time in 28 games but has traded players with salaries totaling $49 million. Lucas Harrell (8-7) allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings.Dodgers 4, Giants 0SAN FRANCISCO Clayton Kershaw pitched a five-hitter for his second shutout of the season, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat San Francisco to complete a threegame sweep of the NL West leader. Luis Cruz drove in two runs, and Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, James Loney and Mark Ellis had two hits apiece for Los Angeles (56-47), which closed within one percentage point of San Francisco (55-46).Mets 5, Diamondbacks 1PHOENIX R.A. Dickey rebounded from his first loss in three months to gain his National League-leading 14th win, and the New York Mets beat Arizona 5-1. Dickey (14-2) allowed an unearned run and four hits in seven innings, striking out eight, walking three and hitting a batter. The knuckleballer matched Tampa Bays David Price for the major league lead in wins.Marlins 5, Padres 4 (10 innings)MIAMI With scouts from about a dozen teams watching, Josh Johnson tied a career high with six walks as the Miami Marlins rallied from a two-run deficit and beat San Diego in 10 innings. Johnson, the 2010 NL ERA champion, allowed two runs one earned and two hits in five innings with four strikeouts. Miami, a disappointing 47-54 following a $191 million free-agent spending spree, already has dealt Hanley Ramirez, Omar Infante, and Anibal Sanchez in recent weeks and has discussed possible trades involving Johnson. Johnson is 54-30 with a 3.13 ERA for Marlins over the past eight years and is signed through next season at $13.75 annually. Justin Ruggiano hit a game-ending single off Brad Brach (0-2) after Jose Reyes doubled leading off and Carlos Lee was intentionally walked. San Diego loaded the bases with two outs in the 10th against Ryan Webb (4-2), but Chase Headley flied out.Cubs 4, Cardinals 2CHICAGO Anthony Rizzo hit a tworun homer in the 10th inning that lifted the Chicago Cubs over St. Louis. Starlin Castro led off the 10th with a single against Trevor Rosenthal (0-1) and Rizzo followed with his seventh homer. James Russell (5-0) worked an inning for the win. The Cubs are 12-3 in their last 15 home games.Nationals 11, Brewers 10 (11 innings)MILWAUKEE Michael Morse hit a tying, two-run homer in the ninth inning, then delivered a two-run double in the 11th that sent the Washington Nationals over Milwaukee. Bryce Harper drew a leadoff walk from Jose Veras (3-4) in the 11th and Ryan Zimmerman singled. One out later, Morse doubled down the left-field line for an 11-9 lead. Morses homer with one out in the ninth off John Axford made it 9-all. The NL East-leading Nationals rallied for four runs in the eighth to tie it at 7. The Brewers have lost nine of 10. Craig Stammen (4-1) pitched 2 1-3 hitless innings for the victory. Tyler Clippard allowed a solo home run to Corey Hart to open the bottom of the 11th, but earned his 20th save in 22 chances.Braves 6, Phillies 2ATLANTA Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones homered off Roy Halladay, and the Atlanta Braves completed a threegame sweep of the last-place Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta has won five straight. Tim Hudson (10-4) gave up two runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Jonny Venters, Chad Durbin, Eric OFlaherty and Cristhian Martinez followed with twohit relief. In danger of ending a streak of consecutive playoff appearances at five, Philadelphia is last in the NL East this late in a season for the first time since Aug. 12, 2002, STATS LLC said. Halladay (4-6), a two-time Cy Young Award winner, allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.

putt on the 18th to force a playoff and had to settle for a 70. Piercy won while sitting in the clubhouse. Moments earlier, he two-putted for par from 50 feet on the 18th to finish on 17-under 263 and tie the oldest 72-hole scoring record on the PGA Tour. Johnny Palmer had a 263 when he won the Canadian Open in 1952 at St. Charles in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was the second time Piercy has won on the PGA Tour in the last year. He picked up his first win at the Reno-Tahoe Open last year, which is held next week for players who dont get into the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone. Now, Piercy is headed to his first World Golf Championship, and then off to the PGA Championship. More perks arrive next year when Piercy goes to Augusta National for the first time to play in the Masters. Piercy ran off four straight birdies starting on the second hole, a streak that concluded with consecutive two-putt birdies. He reached the par-5 fourth hole in two, and then drove the 296-yard fifth hole. In what amounted to a three-man race on a warm, sunny day at Hamilton, Piercy looked as if he took himself out of the hunt when he ran into trouble off the tee at the 14th, had to play out of the trees and make a 6-foot putt to escape with bogey. But he answered that bogey by chipping in for birdie on the 15th, and then hung on for pars. McGirt, who had never seriously challenged to win in his two years on tour, played in the last group over the final two rounds and played with poise. He took the outright lead by using a hybrid to chip from behind the ninth green, the ball rolling into the cup for an unlikely birdie. McGirt was steady from there until blasting his 45-foot birdie putt well past the cup for a bogey on the 15th. He failed to birdie the par5 17th when he went from the right rough to deep rough above the green to the left, and failed to hit the 18th green from the fairway. The small consolation for McGirt is not having to return to Qschool. His tie for second secures his card for next year, and he is all but assured getting into at least two of the FedEx Cup playoff events. I would have loved to have won the golf tournament, McGirt said. But I played very well all week. Garrigus might have wanted to break that long putter, which cost him dearly. He missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the third hole, and that summed up his round. He missed from 7 feet for birdie on the fourth and the eighth holes, and then missed from 8 feet on the ninth and badly missed a 4foot birdie putt on the 238yard 13th after one of his best tee shots of the final round. But he hung around, and when a 25-foot birdie putt finally fell on the 14th, he mockingly pumped his fist to celebrate. That left him one shot out of the lead, but he gave it back with another miss on his par putt at the 16th. Josh Teater (66), Bud Cauley (66) and Chris Kirk (68) tied for fourth, three shots behind. Vijay Singh closed with a 67 to tie for seventh. what still is considered one of the Sprint Cup Series most prestigious races. After drawing huge crowds for more than a decade after the first NASCAR race at Indianapolis in 1994, attendance has been sagging in recent years. The frontstretch stands were fairly full but there were sparse crowds in the turns. Jeff Burtons flat tire brought out a caution with 36 laps to go, giving the leaders an opportunity to make their final pit stops. Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Gordon and Busch all took four tires on their stops but Biffle only took two tires, allowing him to come out of the pits first. The race restarted with 31 laps to go, with Biffle taking the lead and Johnson fighting off Busch to hold on to second. Biffles lead didnt last long, as Johnson went around him on the front stretch with 29 laps to go. Joey Logano then spun and collected Kenseth, leaving his car banged-up and smoldering. Kenseth was OK but his points lead was gone. Everybody was just running everybody in the back, and you could see it was just a matter of time before the wreck happened, Kenseth said. Johnson got a flawless restart when the race went back to green with 20 laps to go, then pulled away from Busch in the closing laps of the race. Keselowski was going for a weekend sweep after winning the Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis on Saturday. And for a while, it looked like he might pull it off. Keselowski and the No. 2 team experimented with a different pit stop strategy than the rest of the leaders, attempting to set up the possibility of stretching their fuel mileage at the end of the race. Keselowski pitted on lap 91, while the rest of the leaders pitted under caution four laps later. But Keselowskis car got loose after the race restarted on lap 101, and he slid back to seventh a significant setback, given how hard it is to pass at Indianapolis. It was a rough day for Carl Edwards, whose engine began losing power only a handful of laps into the race. In his first race with new crew chief Chad Norris, Edwards qualified second and went into Sunday hopeful that it was a good omen for turning around what has been a fairly disappointing season. Edwards was running third in the early stages of the race, but began dropping in the field after mechanical problems hit. He had to make a lengthy pit stop, losing two laps to the leaders.

That position switch couldnt have worked out better for him or the Vikings. He was 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, taken with the fourth overall draft pick out of Pittsburgh, when he came to Minnesota. In college, he was a stand-up outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive scheme, but the Vikings used a 4-3 alignment and asked him to frequently drop back in coverages he wasnt comfortable with. So when an injury to Mark Mullaney in 1986 created a spot at defensive end, Doleman was moved to the line. He used a unique blend of speed, technique and strength to amass 150 1/2 sacks over 15 seasons in the league, 10 of those with the Vikings. Doleman will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Canton, Ohio, next weekend. Im glad they moved him, to be honest with you, because I didnt like practicing with him, a guy that big, doing drills with you every day, said Scott Studwell, the college scouting director for Minnesota who played middle linebacker for the Vikings. Doleman is the fourth former Vikings player in the past five years to enter the Hall, following defensive tackle John Randle, guard Randall McDaniel and tackle Gary Zimmerman.

Face the Nation to keep new formatBEVERLY HLLS, Calif. Face the Nationis remaining an hour long. CBS News says the Sunday interview program will stick with its hour length beyond its provisional expansion that began in April. Until then, the broadcast had been only 30 minutes in duration, half the length of rival shows Meet the Press on NBC and This Week on ABC. Roughly one-third of CBS stations still arent airing the second half-hour each week. CBS News president David Rhodes says the announcement Sunday is meant to assure holdouts the shows expansion wont be short-lived. The announcement was made at the Television Critics Association conference. Face the Nation, with Bob Schieffer anchoring, has grown in viewership in recent months and is now the top-rated Sunday morning public-affairs show.Tom Jones forced to cancel Olympic gigLONDON Tom Jones has apologized to fans after pulling out of an Olympic celebration concert in London after contracting bronchitis. The 72year-old Welsh crooner had been due to entertain tens of thousands of people at the outdoor concert in Hyde Park on Saturday. He was replaced by British singer Will Young. The concert was part of the BT London Live series that is offering fans without Olympic tickets an opportunity to listen to music and watch sports on big screens.Metallica burns it up in MexicoMEXICO CITY Metallica vocalist James Hetfield warned things could get perilous at the start of the bands fifth tour of Mexico, saying Were very focused on how dangerous this show is. The audience of more than 22,000 believed it too. Many of the fans were visibly terrified Saturday night as the band re-enacted its burn-down-the-stage performance from 1998s Cunning Stunts video album. At one point a technician fled across the stage like a human torch in a Mexico City show that featured explosions, pyrotechnics, laser lights and the odd giant coffin. Hours earlier Hetfield said the tour would cover the bands 31 years of performing. Metallica has scheduled seven more shows at MexicoCitys Sports Palace before heading to dates in the U.S. and Canada. Spotlight onPEOPLE Page B5MONDAY, JULY 30, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday Friends who have proven to be loyal in the past will be your most reliable allies once again in the year ahead. It will pay to nurture these relationships by being supportive of your allies whenever you can. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Onlookers might believe you to be a better talker than a doer. This can easily be corrected, however, if you act first and leave the conversation until later. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Exercise restraint in your commercial dealings and dont jump on the first offer you receive. Thoroughly study all that is involved, both the obvious points and the subtleties. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Friends and associates will quickly become rattled about a critical situation if you are too indecisive. Once youve studied the matter, make your best judgment call and abide by it. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Manage the people in your charge with a gentle hand, because they will respond more favorably to kindness than to demands or anger. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Instead of handling your resources with prudence, you could easily succumb to your more extravagant impulses. Remember, what you waste now wont be there when you really need it. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be extremely careful not to play favorites in your involvements with friends. If you do, knowingly or unknowingly, you wont like the results one bit. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Theres a chance youll become involved in an endeavor in which all the real power will reside in the hands of another. Should this happen, dont fight what you cant change. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Historically, when you spend impulsively, you seldom walk away with a good deal. If youre not careful, it could be one of those times when youll repeat this pattern. Aries (March 21-April 19) Friends who want to support you might turn reluctant if you come off as too self-serving. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself. Taurus (April 20-May 20) The biggest thing you might have to overcome is a lack of belief in your capabilities. If you dont have any faith in yourself, why should others? Gemini (May 21-June 20) Not everyone with whom youll be involved will be in accord with your way of thinking, but show a willingness to have a meeting of the minds and good things will happen. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If youre not careful, you could find yourself in the unenviable position of having others making all the decisions for you. Once you lose control, it could be difficult to regain it.

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 James Hetfield Tom Jones Associated PressLOS ANGELES The Dark Knight Rises stayed atop the box office for the second straight weekend, making just over $64 million. But its lagging behind the staggering numbers of its predecessor, 2008s The Dark Knight. The final piece in Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy has now grossed more than $289 million in its first 10 days in theaters. It dropped 60 percent from its opening weekend of $160.9 million. By comparison, The Dark Knight took a 53 percent drop in its second weekend with a gross of nearly $75.2 million and a 10-day cumulative gross of $313.8 million. Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros., declined to comment on the Sunday estimates again out of respect for the victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting. But people are still going to the movies, and they did so even last weekend, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. If anything hurt the numbers for all movies this weekend, he said, it was Friday nights opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which drew a record-setting 40.7 million viewers in the United States. For a film that opened as big as this did, considering the situation and what happened last weekend and all that, I would say this is a very strong showing, Dergarabedian said.

TodaysHOROSCOPE Associated PressThe Netherlands Marianne Vos competes in the womens cycling road race final Sunday at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. NBC caught flak on social media websites for airing the event while coverage of the mens basketball team languished on cable. DAVIDBAUDER Associated PressNEW YORK In the age of social media, NBC now has millions of television critics who make their opinions known about every aspect of Olympics coverage instantly. Theyve even set up their own hashtag on Twitter: #nbcfail. The online complaints focused Saturday on NBCs decision to air the marquee swimming event won by American Ryan Lochte on tape delay in prime time, and Friday on the network not streaming the opening ceremony online. Sundays critics started early: people wondering why the U.S. mens basketball teams opening game aired on a cable network while womens cycling was shown on NBC. The conversation is so active that NBCs executive producer of the games, Jim Bell, took to Twitter to answer critics and even change the way NBC is doing something in response. #nbcfail is filled with a lot of crying and snark and humor, but NBC can actually learn something from it, said Jeff Jarvis, a media critic who writes the Buzzmachine.com blog. Complaints about tape delayed coverage are an evergreen with Olympics held on foreign soil. But the London Games are the first with Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites in full flower, in a mobile phone era where people carry computers that instantly deliver news in their pockets. It has amplified the impatience of viewers who want to see events on their large-screen TVs instantly and havent been mollified by NBCs decision to stream the events live online. James Poniewozik, Time magazine TV critic, tweeted that NBC tape delay coverage is like the airlines: its interest is in giving you the least satisfactory service you will still come back for. That drew a quick response from NBCs Bell: You do know that all sports events are being streamed live right? I do, indeed! replied Poniewozik. Have enjoyed it. Apparently a lot of folks still prefer watching it on TV. NBC says it saves big events for prime-time airing because that is when most viewers are available to watch them and where the network makes the bulk of its advertising revenue. Since prime time on the U.S. East Coast coincides with 1 a.m. London time, there are no events to air live then. NBC representatives noted that there were 39 hours of live events Sunday on NBC and its affiliated networks. Even as it defends its approach, NBC clearly hears those critics. One of Bells Facebook posts highlighted coverage of Sundays cycling race by saying it was all-caps LIVE. The network advertised its live streaming on the prime-time broadcast. Jonathan Wald, who produces Piers Morgans CNN talk show and used to work at NBC, tweeted that the medal for most Olympic whining goes to everyone who complains about what happens every four years. Tape delay. The advent of Twitter makes it seems as if theres a lot of unhappiness when the majority of viewers are watching NBC on tape delay and appear satisfied with it, Wald said in an interview. NBC can point to television ratings justifying their approach. The Nielsen company said the opening ceremony drew more than 40 million people Friday, the most ever for one of those Olympic events. Saturdays first night of coverage was seen by 28.7 million, another record, beating every other first night of Olympic competition. In Beijing four years ago, 24 million watched on the corresponding night. Jarvis said he believes NBC could satisfy fans by, for example, televising events like Lochtes race live in the afternoon and then repeating it at night. He acknowledges, though, that hes not the one whod potentially be risking millions of dollars in advertising revenue if such a decision cut into prime-time viewing. Some of the online complaints seem to take special glee in bashing NBC, with a few describing it like an Olympic sport of its own. Some are quite personal, like the CNN producer who tweeted Sunday: No USA basketball in my hotel room. Why they arent putting it on NBCs main channel is beyond me! Bell, in some of his back-and-forth with online critics Sunday, answered one tweeter who described herself as a St. Louis mom and complained about NBCs Nightly News on Saturday airing results of events that hadnt been shown on the network yet. Bell tweeted that hed look into it, and shortly after told her that Nightly News would announce a spoiler alert to tell people to avert their eyes if they didnt want to see results. Not everyone online is a critic. On Sunday, the U.S. Olympic sailing team tweeted that it was by far the greatest sailing TV coverage in Olympic history. On social media, critics of NBCs coverage plentiful and loud

B6MONDAY, JULY30, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Barry Manilow said, Misfits arent misfits among other misfits. Last week we looked at bidding aggressively when we had a good fit with partner. Obviously, the antithesis applies: When your partnerships hands do not have a fit, be circumspect. However, inexperienced players tend to do things in reverse. They underbid good-fit deals and get carried away with a misfit, hoping to find something that does not exist. In todays deal, look at the North hand. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade, and he rebids two hearts. What would you do now? Souths two-heart rebid shows at least a six-card suit, fewer than four spades and 12 to 14 points. (Yes, he has only 11 high-card points, but that hand is worth a one-bid.) Your sides combined highcard power is 22 to 24, insufficient for game unless you have either a good fit or a long, running suit. In this instance, you know there isnt a good fit and you have no reason to assume you can run nine tricks in three no-trump. You have only two sensible options: pass and no bid! Now lets look at two hearts. West leads the diamond jack. East takes dummys queen with his ace and returns the suit. How should South continue? Declarer has four side-suit losers (one spade, two diamonds and one club), so can afford only one trump loser. The best play is low to the queen. This succeeds whenever East has king-third or kingfourth. To start with low to the 10 wins only when East has jack-third, which is less likely. After the queen wins, declarer cashes his heart ace and drives out Easts king.

Several months ago, I caught him talking to a woman online, and Im worried its happening again. In spite of my suspicions, however, when Ive checked his activity, I see nothing. (I realize he could be deleting things.) Last night, we went out for dinner, and we werent in the door five minutes before he was standing in the bedroom with his tablet in his hands checking his email. When I tell him Id like him to spend more time with me instead of his computer, he gets angry. What can I do? My Husband Doesnt Listen to Me Dear Listen to Me: Are you objecting because your husband is addicted to his computer or because you think he is using it to cheat? Our concern is that he becomes angry when you broach the subject. This defensiveness is a way to protect his behavior. If you simply want more of his attention, first determine whether you are being too clingy, and then find effective ways to distract him. However, if you simply dont trust him, that is a more serious issue, and we recommend counseling with or without him. Dear Annie: I used to have a lot of friends, and then I went through a major depression. I tried not to lean on them too much, but I did need to talk. I was universally abandoned. I was no longer fun. I was too frightened and depressed to go out. I couldnt listen endlessly to their problems anymore. I wanted them to listen to mine. But I was careful not to suck the life out of them. In fact, some friends never knew I was depressed. So, here I am with 350 Facebook friends from high school, college, work and church. Yet none of them calls. I saw these same people through multiple calamities. They will respond if I contact them, but thats it. They are happy to like my Facebook status or comment on a photo, but no one invites me anywhere. When I was at rock bottom, I often contemplated suicide. I sought help and got medication and counseling and am better. Im sure if I died, these same people would show up at my funeral and say wonderful things about me. If anyone sees themselves in this, please check out your roster of friends and show some friendliness. I sure could use some. Lost in the City Dear Lost: We suspect that when you went through an extended period of staying home, your friends developed the habit of enjoying themselves without you. Youve made great steps in recovery, but might not be high on their list of social contacts. And please remember that 350 Facebook friends do not equal one or two real-life, supportive friends. You will need to make the next several moves, inviting people to go out to dinner, a movie, an art exhibit, a fashion show, whatever appeals to you. Once they remember how much they enjoy your company, things will improve. And if these friends continue to be distant, its time to find some new ones. Dear Annie: Id like to weigh in about having flowers at funerals. My mother was adamant on this subject. She always told me that if I couldnt bring her flowers when was alive, she sure didnt want them when she was dead. So my brother and I gave her flowers whenever we could. At her funeral, we had a single red rose on her casket. It was her favorite flower. Im sure the people attending the service thought we were being cheap, but I felt we kept to her wishes. Im sorry about the florists loss of income, but my mothers preferences were much more important. Chattaroy, Wash.

enough left to hold off the towering, 20-year-old Frenchman, one of the sports real rising stars. I gave everything in the last 50 until he cracked, Agnel said. In the last 10 meters, I saw that he was really cracking. Agnel touched in 3 minutes, 9.93 seconds, having gone exactly one second faster than Lochte over the last 100 meters. Lochte and the Americans dropped to silver in 3:10.38, while Australia the favorite didnt even get a medal. Russia took the bronze in 3:11.41, edging the team from Down Under by 0.22 for the last spot on the podium. We knew the Australians would be very strong, but they were very nervous, perhaps like us in 2008, said Clement Lefert, who swam the third leg for the French. We were very relaxed, like the Americans in 2008. And four years later, he added, we got our revenge. Phelps settled for his 17th career medal and first silver to move a step closer to becoming the most decorated Olympian ever. At least Im in a medal today, Phelps said ruefully, referring to a fourth-place finish in his first race of the London Games. But silver was a bitter disappointment for the Americans, who now know how the French felt four years ago. France had the lead in Beijing and its best sprinter, Alain Bernard, going out on the final leg. But Lezak swam the fastest relay leg in history, drafting Bernard along the lane rope and beating him by a scant 0.08 seconds to keep Phelps on track for his record eight gold medals. It was one of the greatest races in Olympic history. This one wasnt too shabby, either. We put out our best four guys and we went out there to try to win it, Lochte said. But we came up short. So, I mean, Im kind of bummed because when you go up on the blocks you always want to win. But serving our country, getting a medal, you cant be mad about that. trouble it only led 22-21 after one quarter there were enough flaws (14 turnovers, 26 fouls) to keep coach Mike Krzyzewski and his staff busy and this superstar-laden squad from feeling too comfortable. It wasnt perfect, said James, who only took six shots while setting up his teammates. Weve still got room for improvement. We had too many turnovers, too many fouls and we had a couple of defensive rebounds we could have come up with. But overall, we played a pretty good game for as close to 40 minutes as possible. Kobe Bryant had said this team could beat the 1992 Dream Team that changed international hoops forever at the Barcelona Games. That matchup is mythical, but the London Games arent, and this U.S. team will have to play much better in upcoming games if it plans to maintain American dominance. We know we have to keep going for 40 minutes and play hard, said Bryant, who only played 12 minutes. Afterward, Parker, who nearly missed these games after undergoing surgery for a freak eye injury, didnt want to concede anything to the Americans. But when asked if the U.S. team can be beat, he took a contemplative pause before responding. Theyre going to be very, very tough to beat, Parker said. At times, the Americans offense was erratic. The U.S. missed its first six 3-pointers and settled too quickly for jump shots instead of driving to the basket. But France wasnt able to capitalize as the U.S. turned up its pressure on defense and forced 18 turnovers. With first lady Michelle Obama on hand to cheer on the U.S., Durant, Anthony and Tyson Chandler added nine rebounds apiece for the Americans, who will next play Tuesday against Tunisia, beaten 60-56 by Nigeria in the tournament opener. As they left the floor, the U.S. players stopped to hug Mrs. Obama, who can report back to her commander in chief husband that his favorite team has taken its first step toward gold. Parker, playing with goggles to protect a surgically repaired left eye, scored 10 points but France fell to 0-5 in Olympic competition against the USA. Ali Traore scored 12 points to lead France, which got few uncontested looks from the outside and missed 20 of 22 3-pointers. They pressured us from the start until the end, said France coach Vincent Collet. With the U.S. leading 5236 at halftime, Durant opened the second half with a 3-pointer, Bryant dropped one from long range and after James dunked an alley-oop pass from Deron Williams, the Americans led 64-43. Au revoir, France. The U.S. teams lead ballooned to 78-51 after three quarters, allowing Krzyzewski to rest Bryant, James and Durant for most of the fourth quarter. With the game well in hand, Krzyzewski even gave 19year-old Anthony Davis, the top pick in Junes NBA draft, his first taste of Olympic play. Durant had struggled to score during a recent exhibition tour, prompting James to give his close friend and teammate a pep talk. I told K.D. to be himself, James said. We need the K.D. who scores. We dont need the K.D. who defers. Unlike his peers, Krzyzewski has the luxury of a deep bench, and he was forced to go it early and often in the first half, when the Americans got into foul trouble. They were called for 18 personals and complained about some of the calls. Anthony and Russell Westbrook spent the final six minutes of the second quarter on the bench after picking up their third fouls.B8MONDAY, JULY30, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEOLYMPICS 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 Time697161 000BU8L 000BU8A 000C10E Able to work early morning hours before 6am Must be 18 years old Florida drivers license and insuranceIf interested come to the Meadowcrest Plant between 1 and 2 am, drive around to the back and ask for a district manager.1624 N.

Little Bear is an awesome companion. Hes a 2-year-old shepherd mix whose owner gave him up due to housing issues. He learns quickly, knows some basic commands and is very laid-back and well mannered in the house, preferring to rest on the floor wherever his human is. While he gets along well with other dogs on walks and on public outings, he would do best in a home without other dogs or cats. He is heartworm negative and has already been microchipped. His adoption fee of $60 includes vaccinations, neutering, free obedience class and a month of free pet insurance. Meet him to see if hes the perfect dog for you.
