State and federal organizations limit mosquito spray B USTER T HOMPSON Chronicle InternLECANTO Whenever a problem needs solving, the solution is usually found at the source. The Citrus County Mosquito Control District (CCMCD) in Lecanto doesnt have that luxury when attempting to rid Citrus County of mosquitoes. Since 1987, arthropod control agencies like the CCMCD have been constrained by state and federal organizations regulating lands designated as environmentally sensitive and biologically productive. Some of these areas are prime recreational and residential areas, but all of them are prime breeding sites for mosquitoes. When the CCMCD does want to spray in these protected lands, it must file a permitting plan with that specific agency and wait for a confirmation or denial. If we have to wait for a manager to respond for a day or a week, and we have to call, call, call, (the INSIDE AUGUST 6, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 117 ISSUE 365 50 CITRUS COUNTY NATIONAL NEWS: Deadly attack A gunman kills six people at a temple in Wisconsin./ Page A16 NATIONAL NEWS: Less security People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more into Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits./ Page A12www.chronicleonline.com LOCAL NEWS: Pool partyShelter dogs beat the heat to draw attention to their adoption. / Page A3 INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A14 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?How will you be voting?

PAGE A4 TODAY& next morning MONDAY Driver dies on SR 44 S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER A 49-yearold Beverly Hills man died early Sunday morning after his vehicle jumped a curb and crashed into two unoccupied vehicles. According to a preliminary report from Florida Highway Patrol, a 2004 Dodge truck was traveling east shortly before 2:30 a.m. on State Road 44 near the intersection of Rock Crusher Road. For unknown reasons, the driver reportedly lost control of the truck, drove off the roadway and struck a curb. Authorities said the truck became airborne and traveled into the parking lot of the Kangaroo gas station, where it collided with a 2000 Dodge Durango SUV and 1987 Dodge Aries. The driver suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The unoccupied vehicles received an estimated $6,000 and $3,000 worth of damage, respectively. The identity of the driver had not been released as of press time Sunday pending the notification of next of kin. FHP states the crash is still under investigation; therefore, details about the incident are subject to change.

Outpouring of complaints DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle Yards and streets in an unincorporated area of Crystal River just north of Bicentennial Park have been flooding due to the heavy rains the county has experienced. Persistent flooding has low-lying neighborhoods ire up A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The rainy season of 2012 will be memorable to many for various reasons, but for Sandra Jaeger and her neighbors in near the Crystal River Airport, its been harrowing. Even before Tropical Storm Debby, we have been flooded over here and we have tried everything to get help, but no one is helping us, Jaeger said. Emotions are frayed and Jaeger said she and her neighbors need help from the authorities in providing drainage relief. I found a syringe with blood in it the other day in my yard, and my neighbors foot is infected because of this. We dont have clean water and people are not using their septics, she said. Tom Davis, president of Crystal Aero Group Inc, which operates the airport, said parts of the facility have been under water, as well. Its because the ground is sodden and each time rain falls it gathers, Davis said. Maybe there is something clogged in the drainage systems, but I think it is because of the persistent rainfall. County officials said the excessive rains, coupled with the contours of the area, are making it ripe for flooding. Those homes are in low-lying areas, said Lindsay Ubinas, county spokeswoman. Ubinas said county crews have been out in the area, placing signage warning of water levels. Special to the Chronicle Deborah May Davenport, 47, and her estranged husband, Joseph Howard Davenport, 48, died Aug. 1 at the familys home in Inverness. Debbie Davenport: She loved her children, Inverness Editors note: On Wednesday, Aug. 1, authorities were called to an Inverness residence where the bodies of Joseph Davenport and Deborah Davenport were found. An investigation indicates the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide. In this Postscript, loved ones reflect on fond memories in the years preceding the recent tragedy. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Debbie Davenport was the kind of mom every child longs for. From willingly and enthusiastically driving a van full of girls across the state to their soccer match to working the concession stand during a high school football game not to mention making the worlds best chewy, fudgy brownies Debbie was devoted to her kids: Tiffany, 22; Joey Jr., 15, and Savanna, 14. When my mom was around, there was always fun and laughter, said Tiffany Davenport. Deborah May Davenport, 47, and her estranged husband, Joseph Howard Davenport, 48, died Aug. 1 at the familys home in Inverness. Born in Miami Beach, at age 8 Debbie moved with her family to Cinnaminson, N.J. where she grew up. Her younger sister, Cyndi Weber, remembers a fun childhood roller skating together, being in Girl Scouts together. She was a cheerleader in high school for football and basketball, and in her junior year our boys varsity basketball team went to state Group 3 championship, so that was an exciting time for her, Weber said. After high school, Debbie attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia, graduating in 1984. Her dream was to find a job in fashion, which she finally See POSTSCRIPT / Page A8 See SKEETERS / Page A7 See FLOODING / Page A8 County bugged by rules for skeeters LOCAL EFFORTS: Get food Area groups offer low-cost food options and free meals each week./ Page A6 The flooding is also causing problems at the Crystal River Airport.

Boca Raton Lynn University to host presidential debate A South Florida university is preparing for the national spotlight that comes with hosting a presidential debate. The final debate between President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney will be Oct. 22 at Lynn University in Boca Raton. The school with 2,100 students is preparing to host 2,500 members of the media for a debate expected to draw up to 70 million TV viewers. Hosting the debate is expected to cost the school roughly $4.5 million. Naples Boaters come to the rescue of diver Authorities said a couple good Samaritans came to the rescue of a stranded scuba diver off Florida. Cindy Tutino got separated from her family while diving Friday afternoon in the Gulf of Mexico. She told the Naples Daily News she tied her yellow bikini top to a flipper and waved it in the air to attract boaters. The makeshift distress flag caught the eye of David and Lyn Hunerberg in their 58foot vessel, who safely delivered Tutino to her husband and son. Niceville DNA helps close old murder case Authorities said DNA evidence has helped close a 37year-old murder case in the Florida Panhandle. Catherine Ainsworths body was found in her Niceville apartment on Aug. 30, 1975. She had been strangled and sexually assaulted. Authorities said theyve linked the crime scene to William P. Rouse, a New York man who had been based at Eglin Air Force Base at the time. Rouse died in 2006. Authorities told the Northwest Florida Daily News Rouses relatives provided two hats he frequently wore for DNA testing. Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office Investigator Travis Robinson said DNA from the hats matched DNA evidence found on a rug under Ainsworths body. Rouse had been Ainsworths neighbor. Robinson said Rouse had given conflicting stories to the cases original investigators. From staff and wire reports Page A3 MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Today, at the city council meeting, officials hope to launch a study to address disparities in the citys water rates. The city acknowledges water rates appear to be creating a situation where certain high-consumption commercial users pay more for service within the city than would be the case in some other communities. Officials cite the following possible reasons for the disparity: The city does not have a separate rate structure for residential and commercial users. The conservationbased rate structure implemented in 2007 has smaller rate tiers (in terms of the consumption thresholds) than those found in some other comparable jurisdictions. The rate for the highest consumption threshold is significantly higher than what is in place for some other comparable jurisdictions. The city has proposed a 3 percent rate increase set to begin Oct. 1. Council members will also: Hear from Capt. Danny Linhart about crime figures in the city for the second quarter of 2012; Discuss efforts to divest the city of the Yeomans Park property; Consider proposed budget adjustments for the current fiscal year; Consider making a change to tree board bylaws allowing one board member to reside outside the city limits; Hear a status updateon the project to improve Cutler Spur Boulevard.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Associated PressPORT ROYAL, Jamaica Tropical Storm Ernesto brushed past the Caribbean countrys southern coast Sunday, causing heavy rains but few problems as it took a course expected to carry it by Honduras and across the Yucatan Peninsula into the Gulf of Mexico. Forecasters at Jamaicas Meteorological Service said rain was tapering off, but light to moderate showers from squalls were still present over most of the island, especially eastern areas. In Jamaicas southern capital of Kingston, Ernesto dumped some rain but left no noticeable damage. Island authorities urged people in flood-prone areas to stay on alert. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday evening Ernesto was getting a bit more organized as it moved away from Jamaica. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Florence, which formed far out in the Atlantic, stopped strengthening by early Sunday and was no longer expected to gain strength, the hurricane center said. Jamaica gets rain as Ernesto passes to the south

This defied a Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade that abortion is legal until the fetus becomes viable, usually early in the third trimester. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Rich Nugent, Yes. Census Bureau, Senate Confirmations: Members voted, 261-116, to send President Obama a bill setting five-year terms for directors of the U.S. census to protect them from political influence. A yes vote backed a bill (S 679) that also reduces from about 1,200 to about 1,000 the number of presidential appointees other than judges subject to the Senate's cumbersome confirmation process. Nugent, No. Iran Sanctions: Members voted, 421-6, to toughen U.S. economic sanctions on Iran. A yes vote was to pass a bill denying access to U.S. financial markets to any global entity whose investments or purchases boost Iran's nuclear program. The bill (HR 1905) was to be signed by President Obama. Nugent, Yes. GOP Tax Cuts: Members passed, 256-171, a GOP bill to extend Bush-era tax cuts for all incomes through 2013. The bill also keeps estate taxes low, retains 15 percent as the capital-gains and dividends rate and allows certain credits for the working poor to expire. A yes vote backed HR 8. Nugent,Yes. Democratic Tax Cuts: Members defeated, 170-257, a Democratic bill to extend Bush tax cuts through 2013 for couples with incomes under $250,000 and singles under $200,000, or 98 percent of taxpayers. A yes vote was to also raise taxes next year on the top 2 percent of payers. (HR 8) Nugent, No. GOP Tax Code: Members passed, 232-189, a bill stating the House Republicans' wish list for any overhaul of the Tax Code debated in the next Congress. A yes vote called for making the code flatter, closing loopholes, ending breaks, cutting rates and limiting tax revenue to 18 or 19 percent of GDP (HR 6169) Nugent, Yes. Home-Mortgage Deduction: Members defeated, 188-235, a Democratic motion stating that any Tax Code overhaul should retain deductions for home mortgages and charitable contributions. The underlying bill (HR 6169) did not identify tax breaks Republicans would like to see repealed. A yes vote backed the motion. Nugent, No. Emergency Drought Aid: Members approved, 223-197, $383 million this year in drought aid for livestock producers and certain other recipients. The aid awaits Senate action. A yes vote backed the aid over criticism of House GOP leaders for having delayed a new farm bill. (HR 6233) Nugent, Yes. Cyber-Security Impasse: Senators failed, 52-46, to reach 60 votes for ending GOP blockage of a bill setting up a voluntary system to help companies fend off cyber-attacks that could cause chaos in America. A yes vote was to advance the bill (S 3414) over U.S. Chamber of Commerce arguments it is government overreach into the private sector. Bill Nelson, Y es; Marco R ubio, Did not vote.

The organization known as the Military Order of the Purple Heart, which is the only congressionally chartered veterans organization exclusively for combat-wounded veterans, was formed 80 years ago in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of Purple Heart recipients. More than 1.7 million members of the Armed Forces of the United States have been awarded the Purple Heart for their battlefield sacrifices since first adopted as a combat award by the War Department on Feb. 22, 1932. Breakfast slatedWest Citrus Elks Lodge 2693 will host a buffet breakfast and program at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, commemorating the 230th anniversary of the Purple Heart and honoring all Purple Heart recipients.

mosquito has) gone through the life cycle, said Joel Jacobson, director of the CCMCD. According to Jacobson, numerous managing authorities monitor about 40 percent of the county. I really dont understand their reasoning when they say the mosquito is a valuable part of the ecosystem, said Jacobson. Im sure (the mosquito is) a food source, but theres very little usable protein in a mosquito. A bat will go eat the larger sources of nutrients. Steve Watkins with the countys mosquito control district has hands-on experience with mosquitoes and the organizations that indirectly protect their breeding grounds. When you have areas that you cant (treat), its bad for us because we get the complaints (from people) right next to the source, but we can only treat their roads and not the source, said Watkins. Reasons for why the mosquito is considered environmentally sensitive and productive is unclear, but Jacobson wants state and federal institutions to become aware the mosquito is a major pest. A lot of times I know the federal government has inthe-lab testing, not realworld testing, and those determinations that are made are pushed down to the states, said Jacobson. Its changing slowly because the government is becoming more receptive to actual real-world data. Gradually, some establishments have recognized the importance of ridding the insect from tourist hotspots, and grant the CCMCD with easy access to their lands. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Division of Forestry has been the most beneficial in allowing us to spray, said Jacobson. I dont know if their manager knows that for people that like to go pleasure hiking, its not just realistic with a (mosquito) landing rate of 25 per minute. The CCMCDs goal for the future is to move away from adulticide spray and move to a more organic and bacterial form of larvicide, getting to the start of the mosquitoes life. I want to move away from the spray and go to pure larvicide, but in order to do that, we need to come up with some way for these people to get on the same side as us, said Jacobson.

But when it comes flooding on private property, there is not much we can do. Our crews will be out there whenever it rains to check on the homeowners to see if they need sand bags or any other assistance, Ubinas said. According to data from Southwest Florida Water Management District, 36.28 inches of rain fell between January and July this year. The average annual amounts of rainfall this area of the state receives during that period is 31.77 inches. As of Aug. 3, aquifer levels were 2.55 feet. According to the National Weather Service, there is a 50 percent chance for rain Monday.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. found a few months ago, working as a visual fashion merchandiser for Bealls, dressing mannequins. She met her husband on a blind date in New Jersey. Joe was born in Willingboro, near Philadelphia. They decided to raise their family in Florida and moved to Inverness in the mid-1990s. Debbie worked various jobs as a substitute teacher, at local restaurants like Cinnamon Sticks and Beef O Bradys but being a mom was always her top priority. Her first career was raising her family, said her aunt Bernice Hull. She did Girl Scouts with us, field trips, family vacations, Tiffany said. She went to our soccer games and cross country meets, rowing. Tiffany said a perfect example of her mothers devotion to her kids was high school grad night in Orlando the night before a state rowing competition in Tampa. At 2 a.m. Debbie drove to Orlando to get Tiffany and then drove to Tampa in time for her competition. She was just like that, and not just for her own children. She was the mom her kids friends referred to as their second mom. She loved young people, always had a plate of food or a listening ear for anyone who needed it. She had a young spirit and enthusiasm and she liked to have fun. However, she wasnt a pushover. She could be tough and a tad bit a lot bossy, said her sister. She had a playful sense of humor and loved sarcasm. She had a strong personality; she got things done, said brotherin-law Jake Weber. As for Joe Davenport, the Rev. Greg Kell, the familys pastor, said the manner in which a person dies does not define his or her whole life. Despite the tragic circumstances, the Davenport children wanted to talk about their dad, whom they also lost and loved. He was hilarious, said daughter Savanna, adding that he was a major source of entertainment for the family especially his taste in clothes. While Debbie was the style guru, Joe preferred wearing the same clothes a blue checked shirt, jean shorts, mandals (clunky sandals) and a Panama hat that was smaller than his head. He bragged about us kids all the time, Tiffany said. Joey Jr. recalled taking a twoweek trip with his dad, a commercial truck driver, in his big-rig truck. We had a tree in the back yard that had a branch over the swing set, and for whatever reason he decided to climb the tree. He was going to jump down on the swing or something, Tiffany said. But halfway he got stuck, and we had to coax him down. There was never a dull moment in the household. Debbie Davenport loved reading. She listened to classic rock the Beatles, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd. She loved to crochet and needlepoint. She was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church and a Miami Dolphins fan. She knew how to talk about football, said son Joey. Joe Davenport liked fishing and woodcrafting. Debbie took forever to get into the shower. She was the first to volunteer for anything. She recently lost 36 pounds and looked great. She finally had her dream job and was happy, really happy. She always looked for the brighter side of things, Tiffany said. She was my rock, and my best friend. She wanted her kids to give back to the community, and when they moved here, they made Inverness their home and their life, Cyndi Weber said. Thats now reflected in how this town has responded. A number of fundraisers are planned to benefit the Davenport children, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 8, at the Inverness and Crystal River Beef O Bradys locations. From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies will be volunteering as servers, donating 100 percent of their tips. Also, 15 percent of the days profits will go toward the fund. An account FBO Tiffany, Joey and Savanna Davenport is set up at Old Florida National Bank, 1777 W. Main St., Inverness. Watch the Chronicle for further information about additional fundraisers. A celebration of life memorial service for Debbie and Joe Davenport will be at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6, at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness.

J OHN S EEWER Associated PressCLEVELAND For the past three years, Taura Tates mornings have revolved around caring for a woman who suffers from the effects of a stroke and diabetes. She cooks her oatmeal for breakfast, helps with showers and makes sure she takes the right medicine. Without the help of a home health aide, the woman, whos in her 70s, would be in a nursing home instead of living on her own. But Tate has her own struggles. Up until a recent promotion, her pay amounted to what she could make at McDonalds. She doesnt get health or retirement benefits and has worked at five agencies in the Cleveland area, some simultaneously, to guarantee shell have enough clients. If they go into the hospital or go on vacation, you dont get paid, she said. Demand for home health care workers is soaring as baby boomers the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 get older and states try to save money by moving people out of more costly nursing homes. But filling more than 1 million new home care positions over the next decade will be a challenge. Most home health aides are paid about the same as maids and manicurists and dont get sick days or health insurance themselves. Many who are self-employed must pay for their own gas for driving to appointments and cover their own medical bills if theyre hurt on the job. The U.S. Labor Department projects that home health and personal care aides will be among the fastest-growing jobs over the next decade, adding 1.3 million positions and increasing at a rate higher than any other occupation. If those jobs cant be filled, many older Americans are likely to face living with relatives or in nursing homes, which will only cost families and taxpayers more money. Some aides say they have no choice but to say no when people call looking for help because they cant afford to take on someone else. Its hard because I love helping people, but at the same time Ive got three kids, said Kimberly Ingram, a home health aide in Lancaster, S.C. When you add up your miles, your gas money, you dont make nothing. Her part-time job delivering newspapers pays better when you factor in the time and travel some home care jobs need, she said. Nearly half of all home care workers live at or below the poverty level, and many receive government benefits such as food stamps, unions and advocacy groups say. The median pay a year ago was $9.70 per hour 4 cents less than fast-food workers and short-order cooks, according to the most recent statistics from the Labor Department. Agencies that supply home health workers blame states and the federal government for failing to increase reimbursement rates for Medicaid and Medicare patients at a time when costs are going up. Home health services are an easy target for cuts because theyre not required by federal law, and legislators in states with big deficits say they have no choice but to cut Medicaid spending, the second-costliest item for states behind education. At the same time, some states, including Ohio, are changing how they coordinate medical care and trying to move some of the most expensive and hard-to-treat patients into homeand community-based settings instead of nursing homes. The result, home care agencies say, is that theres little room for them to make a profit. And that means they can go only so far to attract new workers. We compete with McDonalds, Wendys and the discount stores, said Jennifer Witten, owner of Imani Home Health Co. in Cleveland. You cant afford to raise your salaries, yet you want to hire the best people. Home care agencies say trying to fill jobs will become even more difficult in a few years if the economy improves and job options increase. The real staffing challenge is 10 years away, said David Tramontana, president of Home Care by Black Stone in Cincinnati. If we cant pay them more than they get at McDonalds, were in big trouble. The qualifications and training for home care aides varies. A high school diploma isnt usually a requirement, and some states call for only on-the-job training, while others insist on more formal instruction about basic nutrition and personal hygiene at community colleges or elder care programs. Home care agencies that are reimbursed by Medicare or Medicaid must hire aides who have passed a competency test or received state certification. Despite the relatively low pay, many aides say they like the flexible hours and find the work rewarding. Tate, a home care aide since 1999, doubts she could get by if it werent for her husband, a truck driver who also has health insurance. She could make more money at a nursing home or hospital but relishes the connections she makes in home care. I get attached to the people, said Tate, who made $8.50 an hour until she received a promotion and a $2 raise earlier this summer. How could you not if youre with them every day? Sometimes youre the only person they see. Retired hospital nurse and home health aide Judith Mezey-Kirby, born a few years ahead of the baby boom, said she worries about who will take care of boomers in the coming years. Home health care workers need not only better pay, she said, but also better training on how to take care of basic needs. She had good and bad experiences with aides who help her with the laundry and chores that require heavy lifting around her home in Fairview Park, a Cleveland suburb. It needs attention bad, said Mezey-Kirby, 73. You just cant take people off the streets. Wittens company considered adding a 401(k) plan for its workers but decided it was too costly. Home aides she hires start at $8.50 per hour and can earn up to $10. Most work 30 to 40 hours a week, and all but a few have other part-time jobs, Witten said. Jareese Mitchell, a personal care attendant in Manchester, Conn., spends 30 hours a week with two quadriplegics, helping them eat, dress and bathe. He also goes to school and works three nights a week at a clothing store. Everybody has a job outside; you pretty much have to, said Mitchell, who until recently was receiving food stamps. He said he might look for different work if the pay doesnt increase. Thats not unusual. The turnover rate among home health aides is estimated to be anywhere from 30 percent to 50 percent, sometimes higher. The revolving door is especially tough on those who depend on home aides for help throughout the day. My mom gets nervous when she has brand-new people. Theres always a trust issue, said Beth Cramer, who lives with her 74-yearold mother in the Cleveland suburb of Willowick. An aide comes to the house to help her mother with dressing and cooking while Cramer is at work. Theyre doing the most intimate of intimate things, she said. Imagine a stranger walking into your house and giving you a bath. Gail Williams, a personal assistant in Tampa, Fla., said many people have no one else. You just cant quit the job because these people need you, she said. Chris Hradisky, who relies on a personal assistant to help him with meals and clean his apartment in Waukegan, Ill., said he wouldnt be on his own without help. His aides, he said, are like family. You build a bond with them.The latest installment in Aging America, the joint AP-APME project examining the aging of the baby boomers and its impact on society.N ATIONC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A UGUST 6, 2012 A11 0 0 0 C 8 F 8 or Bifocals $ 12 9 Eyecare Express 20/20 Same Day Service Even Bifocals & Safety Glasses *CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

A beekeeper said he had to be called in to gather up a swarm of thousands of bees that delayed a Delta Air Lines flight from Pittsburgh International Airport to New York. Master beekeeper Stephen Repasky told KDKA-TV he was called out Wednesday when the bees gathered on the wing of the plan as crews were getting ready to fuel the plane. Repasky said such swarms form when colonies become too large and the queen leaves half of her bees behind to find a new home. Some swarms can contain 25,000 to 30,000 bees. Repasky said its likely theres a wild honeybee colony at the airport somewhere. The beekeeper was called to remove the insects because theyre a protected species that cannot legally be killed. Hero Chihuahua NEWNAN, Ga. A Chihuahua is being hailed as a hero after authorities said it sniffed out two girls who were lost in a Georgia forest. The girls, ages 5 and 8, disappeared July 30 for a couple of hours when they were walking on trails near their neighborhood about 30 miles southwest of Atlanta. As police and firefighters began to search for the girls, neighbor Carvin Young grabbed his 3-year-old Chihuahua and joined the search. Young told CBS Atlanta the dog, Bell, picked up the girls scent and began running until she reached them. Rebecca Parga, the girls mother, said her children play with Bell almost every day, and the dog is very familiar with them. The girls, Carlie and Lacey, were scared when they were found, but were not hurt. Dog thief CORAOPOLIS, Pa. A Pittsburgh man allegedly broke into a womans apartment while drunk and stole a potato peeler, a kitchen knife and a small dog. Online court records dont list an attorney for 24-year-old Garrett Stauber, who was arrested shortly after the burglary was reported about 3 a.m. Aug. 1 in Moon Township. Township police say a woman called 911 to report that Stauber kicked in her door, took the utensils out of her dishwasher and grabbed her dog, then left. A neighbor heard what was going on and briefly scuffled with Stauber, who was found sitting shirtless on a couch in his friends apartment in the same building where he had been staying recently.Drunken snoozerPUTNAM TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities said a Michigan couple got an unexpected visit from a drunken 27-year-old neighbor who wandered into their cottage and climbed into bed with them. The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reported the man showed up in the Putnam Township bedroom around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. Police said the couple left and called 911, and officers found the man deeply asleep with his shorts partly down. According to police, the intruder said, This isnt my house, upon waking. He explained he went out drinking nearby after putting his 2and 4-year-old children to sleep at his own home a few doors down. The children were found sound asleep and placed with neighbors. Their father was booked on suspicion of illegal entry and released on bond.

Associated PressWASHINGTON People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more in Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits after they retire. Its a historic shift that will only get worse for future retirees, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. Previous generations got a much better bargain, mainly because payroll taxes were very low when Social Security was enacted in the 1930s and remained so for decades. For the early generations, it was an incredibly good deal, said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy Social Security commissioner who is now a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. The government gave you free money, and getting free money is popular. If you retired in 1960, you could expect to get back seven times more in benefits than you paid in Social Security taxes, and more if you were a low-income worker, as long you made it to age 78 for men and 81 for women. As recently as 1985, workers at every income level could retire and expect to get more in benefits than they paid in Social Security taxes, though they didnt do quite as well as their parents and grandparents. Not anymore. A married couple retiring last year after both spouses earned average lifetime wages paid about $598,000 in Social Security taxes during their careers. They can expect to collect about $556,000 in benefits, if the man lives to 82 and the woman lives to 85, according to a 2011 study by the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank. Social Security benefits are progressive, so most low-income workers retiring today still will get slightly more in benefits than they paid in taxes. Most highincome workers started getting less in benefits than they paid in taxes in the 1990s, according to data from the Social Security Administration. The shift among middleincome workers is happening just as millions of baby boomers are reaching retirement, leaving relatively fewer workers behind to pay into the system. Its coming at a critical time for Social Security, the federal governments largest program. The trustees who oversee Social Security say its funds, which have been built up over the past 30 years with surplus payroll taxes, will run dry in 2033 unless Congress acts. At that point, payroll taxes would provide enough revenue each year to pay about 75 percent of benefits. To cover the shortfall, future retirees probably will have to pay higher taxes while they are working, accept lower benefits after they retire, or some combination of both. Future generations are going to do worse because either they are going to get fewer benefits or they are going to pay higher taxes, said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury official who has studied the issue as a fellow at the Urban Institute. How can you get a better return on your Social Security taxes? Live longer. Benefit estimates are based on life expectancy. For those turning 65 this year, Social Security expects women to live 20 more years and men to live 17.8 more. But returns alone dont fully explain the value of Social Security, which has features that arent available in typical private-sector retirement plans, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP Spouses can get benefits even if they never earned wages. Children can get benefits if they have a working parent who dies. People who are too disabled to work can get benefits for life. You are buying this lifetime inflation-protected benefit that you can never run out of and that will always be there for you, Certner said. It protects your spouse, protects your family and protects you from disability. Certner noted that private pensions, retirement savings and home values took a big hit when the economy collapsed, putting a dent in the retirement plans of many Americans. Social Security is financed by a 12.4 percent tax on wages. Workers pay half and their employers pay the other half. Self-employed workers pay the full 12.4 percent. The tax is applied to the first $110,100 of a workers wages, a level that increases each year with inflation. For 2011 and 2012, the tax rate for employees was reduced to 4.2 percent, but is scheduled to return to 6.2 percent in January. The payroll tax rate was only 2 percent in 1937, the first year Social Security taxes were levied. It did not surpass 6 percent until 1962. Even with low tax rates, Social Security could afford to pay benefits in the early years because there were more workers paying the tax for each person receiving benefits than there are today. In 1960, there were 4.9 workers paying Social Security taxes for each person getting benefits. Today, there are about 2.8 workers for each beneficiary, a ratio that will drop to 1.9 workers by 2035, according to projections by the Congressional Budget Office. About 56 million people now collect Social Security benefits, and that number is projected to grow to 91 million in 2035. Monthly benefits average $1,235 for retired workers and $1,111 for disabled workers. Social Security provides most older Americans a majority of their income. About onequarter of married couples and just under half of single retirees rely on Social Security for 90 percent or more of their income, according to the Social Security Administration. Social Security is whats carrying me, said Neta Homier, a 79-year-old retired hospital worker from Toledo, Ohio. Theres no way I would have made it without it. The kids, theyre on their own, now, and Im not going to be a burden for them. Thats what it would have been if I hadnt had Social Security. Homier said she started receiving Social Security when she was 63 and now gets about $800 a month, after her Medicare premiums are deducted. At 52, Anthony Riley of Columbus, Ohio, has a different perspective. Riley said he has a private retirement account because he worries Social Security wont provide adequate benefits throughout his retirement. I use to think that it was worth paying for your Social Security, but now I dont think so, Riley said. At 22, Mackenzie Millan of Los Angeles has even greater doubts. The money that I put aside now, its not like that money is going to be waiting for me. That money is going toward someone else, she said. If I wanted Social Security 50 years from now, when I wanted to retire, I would have to hope that someone else is still working and putting money aside in their paychecks to pay for my Social Security at that point.

Time for TeddiIve known Teddi Rusnak for many years and I know she will fight for the people of this community. I fought with Teddi leading the way, to stop the current commissioners from privatizing our water and sewer. We won and Im sure we saved lots of money on water rates and knowing our water is safe to drink. Let Teddi put a fresh look in this town and with fresh ideas to promote jobs and new business to our area. Give Teddi a chance. Vote for her!Kenneth Praeger Citrus Springs Meek principled Like so many Citrus residents, I am a retiree and I am so pleased to see Commissioner Joe Meek hold to the same principles that I have held so dear all my life, regardless of conflicting circumstances. Above all else, Joe is always honest, which is a quality sometimes lacking in our elected officials. He is a locally grown family man who wants his children to grow up with pride in the community and where there is opportunity to succeed. He has told his constituents what he will do, and then he has followed through. He has set an extensive program and blistering pace to create the jobs necessary for a vibrant economic engine in Citrus County. The Economic Development Council was created in large part due to Joes vision and his personal participation in creating an environment where Citrus County is open for business. He has led this county in its effort to be business friendly within the confines of reducing the budget through improved efficiency, to ensure there is no negative impact on us old guys and especially retired veterans. So economic development, job growth, done in a prudent, rational manner has been the hallmark of Joes first term in office. In these economic times, there is still plenty to do to return Citrus County to the growth it had before the economic downturn and Joe Meek had demonstrated that he will continue to lead this resurgence. As a former Army officer I say Follow me, vote for Joe Meek. Ron Lundberg Beverly Hills Klemm the future Please consider voting for Michelle Klemm for state committeewoman representingCitrus County Republican Executive Committee. You probably will not hear about this race, since it is not a politically paying job even though it will appear on the ballot. After Michelle was elected REC chairwoman, it was obvious that she was not well studied in Roberts Rules of Order. Egad! An unforgivable faux pas! This didnt faze Michelle, and she persevered by employing the same determination she resorts to when confronted with similar difficulties she studied until she got it right. Besides being determined, Michelle is dedicated, responsible, dependable, authentic, enthusiastic and trustworthy. She is also patient, courteous and friendly, even with those that are sometimes undeserving. The Republican Party needs younger participants that can put forth new perspectives. The party needs an infusion of younger members that, hopefully, will bring in a new dawn of reasoning and understanding, passion and enthusiasm, to the old party. Hopefully, this will also bring more devotion and respect for the U.S. Constitution above all else something akin to the enthusiasm and loyalty emanating from coast-to-coast by Dr. Ron Paul supporters. I was able to tap into all facets of managerial training courses during my nearly four decades of working for corporate America. I knew how best to throw down a challenge, how to find common ground, and all the other prescribed managerial problem-solving techniques peddled, ad nauseam. Unfortunately, sometimes even the best techniques do not work, especially when you are dealing with certain types of personalities, including many politicians that are simply wrapped up tighter than mummies. This stifles any semblance of effective and productive communication from the start since they know best, and thats that. Some situations can be difficult enough without you having to stroke peoples multiple layers of selfabsorption, pompousness and misplaced egotism in order to get your point across and be taken seriously. I mention this because Michelle Klemm knows the political arena; she can roll with the punches, and will not be dissuaded from accomplishing her objectives. Please vote Michelle Klemm for REC state committeewoman. Edna Mattos Hernando Hemrick for sheriff In answer to the question, Have you had enough? my answer to Hank is, Oh my, yes I have. After speaking to Mr. Hemrick on numerous occasions about his signs, I truly believe he will make the positive necessary changes in the sheriffs department. I too believe Hank Hemrick is a true fiscal conservative who will provide a more responsible and people-friendly sheriffs office, especially in reference to our tax-dollar spendings. Budgeting in the area of a zero-based budget to the reduction of the costly air force and a return to a mostly volunteer fire department, Hank Hemrick will be a guardian of our pocketbooks. Being a former law enforcement ranking officer, I have first-hand experience with the ins and outs of law enforcement budgeting. I happened to meet Hank Hemrick at the local flea market where he was greeting and sharing ideas and well-thought-out plans for his run for the sheriff of our county. I could tell in the first five minutes that Hank was a quality guy and he believed in his ideas and it wasnt just words for me to vote for another politician. Hank wanted to hear what my concerns were as a citizen. I was impressed by his responses and vast knowledge in law enforcement budgeting as well as instincts and knowledge to curb overspending and provide transparency, an area in which a public official should have. With Hanks obvious supervisory experience this would complete the criteria for our new sheriff. I have retired here, this is a great place, and I believe that Hank Hemrick will provide a more stable and fiscally sound sheriffs office for me and my family. Please support Hank Hemrick for sheriff of our Citrus County.Ricky Ward Inverness Choose Rusnak The choice for county commissioner in District 5 is an easy one for anyone interested in good county government unfettered by special interests. In fact, the only choice is Teddi Rusnak. I have known Teddi for many years and have watched her make the right choice time after time and speak for the best interests of the vast majority of us. I watched Teddi battle county government when the operation of the county water systems was about to be handed over to private multi-national interests. When Teddi realized what was happening she rallied the troops, filled the county commission chambers with outraged people and soon changed the mind-set of the commission and they voted down the proposal. There are some things that should be kept in the hands of local government, and the most important one is our water supply. When it is placed in the hands of private industry, the pressure on the rate structure is always upward (profit factor); when it is in the government sector the pressure is always downward (tax control). This is just one of many instances I could cite where Teddi has acted successfully in our best interests. Please join with me in voting for Theodora Teddi Rusnak for Citrus County commissioner, District 5.Jim Bitter Homosassa Vote PolisenoI have known Charles Poliseno for approximately 25 years. During that time, I have seen him hold many valuable positions in Citrus County. He served his community as a member of the Inverness Volunteer Fire Department, to the point of risking his life to help rescue elderly residents from a nursing home while fire was overhead. As a paramedic with Citrus County EMS, Charles excelled in his patient care. I know of many people who received his emergency care and are still here today because of his expertise. When Charles began his career as the Public Safety director, he knew there would be many challenges. He oversaw the contract with Corrections Corporation of America and reduced the burden of cost to the taxpayers of Citrus County. With the demise of a private ambulance company, Charles helped establish Nature Coast EMS. Nature Coast EMS is recognized as an excellent pre-hospital medical provider in the state of Florida. By creating Nature Coast EMS, Charles helped reduce the cost of dollars to the taxpayers of Citrus County. I worked for Charles while employed at the Citrus County Fire Academy. During that time, I know that there were very hard decisions to make for staffing the fire service. Charles made those decisions with the understanding that he would not be popular, but he knew that his decision would benefit the residents of Citrus County. Knowing Charles personally, I can tell you that he is an upstanding citizen. He takes responsibility for his actions. He is very honest and has not been arrested or spent time in jail other than as a contract administrator. In order for you to have educated representation with a knowledge base in public administration, you need to elect Charles Poliseno as county commissioner, District 5.John C. Longacre Jr. Lecanto Vision, experienceThe race for Public Defender for the Fifth Circuit contest has two longstanding lawyers, both registered as Republicans. The fact that both are of the same political party registration and they have no political party opposition means that the victor in this contest will be determined by the Aug. 14, 2012, election outcome. After reading the Chronicle editorial on Aug. 1, I realized the importance of sharing with the readership the attributes of Bo Samaryga and the reasons why it is my belief that he should be the public defender for our circuit. Readers and those who have attended the multiple forums, meet-and-greets, etc., have heard both men share their personal backgrounds and legal experiences. Bo Samaryga is known across the circuit amongst his peers, judiciary, legislators, citizens, and equally important, his clients, to be without question a man of honor and integrity, who will bring accountability to the office of public defender. Bo Samarygas integrity as a lawyer can be validated by the fact that his Florida Bar record is above reproach with no accounts of reprimands and or suspensions. Bo is a family man (husband and father of two), experienced leader in not only areas of legal profession but served in the U.S. Army, is a lifetime member of the NRA, is a certified state mediator, businessman (law office and real estate broker), and actively involved in the community in which he lives. Bo Samaryga will be a public defender who will preserve the Constitution and statutory rights of all citizens, regardless of their ability to pay and will do so in a prudent and fiscal conservative manner. Upon review, I am confident the voters of the Fifth Circuit will agree that Bo Samargya needs to be our public defender.

The Republican Legislature and the governor voted for concealed weapons. Now we have more killings by guns than ever and the only time they dont want guns around is when it might affect them. They put out a warrant that nobody can come in with concealed weapons when theyre having their nomination party in Tampa. Theyre even blocking off streets. They dont care about who gets shot as long as its not them. I trap, too There is not one man calling in about trapping cats; we are many. I am one of them. I called Animal Control and asked if killing cats was illegal and they responded that it was not illegal if it is done in a humane manner. So much for your imaginative law.

I would like to give a special thank-you to the woman who offered me a ride home, helped me put my bike in the back of her van, as she lived in Terra Vista and thus dropped me off at my home en route to her home. My wife then took me to Allen Ridge Clinic for treatment. Thank goodness I did not suffer any broken bones. To the staff at the clinic: Great job. Fact is, between the time of my accident and when I got home from the clinic, it was right at two hours, thanks to the clinics staff.

Page A14 MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 R umors are everywhere that former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist is planning a move to the Democratic Party. And, boy, are some people livid. Republicans are calling him two-faced and launching unflattering websites ridiculing their former standardbearer. Some Democrats are equally put off about their adversary switching sides. I say, Charlie, welcome to the party! First, a history lesson. The idea of people changing political affiliations is nothing new to Florida. In the decades after the 1960s, loads of Dixie Democrats left the party for the GOP angered over President Johnsons support of the Civil Rights Act. (Pretty sure Lincoln would have found that ironic). Florida Gov. Claude Kirk ran for statewide office repeatedly as both a Democrat and Republican. But over the past 20 years, Democrats lost their overwhelming electoral dominance of voter registration, for a variety of reasons, to the point where Florida is now truly a purple state. Democrats Obama, Clinton and (I would argue) Gore all won the state, as did Republicans Bush, Scott and Crist. The truth is, its only natural, given the extreme hard right turn the Republican Party has taken, that so many folks, like Crist, feel unwelcomed or at sea. During this last primary season, Americans were aghast watching Republican debate audiences boo a gay U.S. soldier who asked a question about Dont Ask, Dont Tell. Or the chants of let em die when Republican presidential contenders were asked whether we should provide lifesaving care to an uninsured American. Yes, those voices were probably outliers, but not one of the eight people who held themselves out as presidential timber not one, including their eventual nominee had the courage to tell the audience thats not who we are. This is the same party that demands its members take oaths to never raise a tax, and purifies itself of true leaders like U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar who commit the sin of working with the opposing party to address our nations security challenges. Its no wonder that a Republican stalwart like Jeb Bush would opine that neither his father nor even Ronald Reagan would have been nominated by todays Republican Party. That is why I firmly believe the Democratic Party should embrace Republicans and independent voters who are no longer comfortable with the GOPs rigid and extreme dogma. It doesnt sacrifice our principles to invite newcomers and accept political refugees whose worldview is more aligned with ours. As the Republican Party becomes increasingly obedient to the farright wing, this isnt just smart politics; its the right thing to do. One way to really make that happen is for the Democratic Party to invite independent voters to participate in our 2014 primary for governor. These voters make up 20 percent of the electorate, and up to now have only been bystanders in the process of selecting nominees for our states highest office. By including them in the primary process, our candidates will have to reach out to them. They may like what they hear and, more importantly, our candidates may learn something if they listen. Independents, and swing voters in general, tend to determine statewide elections. In 2004 they voted for Bush; in 2008 they went for Obama. And as the Republican Party becomes increasingly divorced from the mainstream, the numbers of independent voters will only grow. Democrats have a right to include independent voters in their primary, and could with a simple internal rule change by the Florida Democratic Party. No less an authority than the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that political parties have a right of association that allows them to include unaffiliated voters in their nomination process. This is a real opportunity that should not be passed up. Too many Americans rightfully believe the electoral process is in disrepair. Trying to reverse the trend of hyper-partisanship is a righteous step that should be taken. So, to Charlie or any other voter who feels the need to make a move, our tent is pretty big and can get somewhat raucous at times, because we definitely dont walk in lockstep. But if you want a Florida whose best days are ahead, then come on in and make yourself at home. Dan Gelber was a state senator and former House Democratic leader from Miami. The hearts of the great can be changed. Homer, Illiad, 9th century B.C. Welcome to the party, Charlie 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 Nelson, Weldon the best choices in Senate race T he Democratic and Republican Party primary races for Floridas U.S. Senate seat each have a candidate who is the clear choice. In the Democratic race, incumbent Sen. Bill Nelsons stature as a public servant towers over his opponent. On the Republican ballot, former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon has demonstrated that hes best suited to represent the citizens of Florida. A native son of Florida, Nelson, 69, has a distinguished 40-year record of public service as a member of the Florida Legislature, Florida Cabinet, U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Throughout his public service, he has championed the environment, education and consumers. Although a loyalist who sides with his party on most issues, he has on occasion bucked his partys leadership. Most recently, he favors extending the Bush-era tax cuts for anyone earning less than $1 million instead of the $250,000 favored by his partys leadership. In this age of partisan politics, Nelson has called for greater bipartisanship and civility between the political parties and factions. In this regard, he has set the example by forging a mutually respectful and collegial relationship with Floridas Republican freshman senator, Marco Rubio. Nelsons challenger, Glenn Burkett, 62, can best be described as a political lightweight who is not a viable candidate. A Naples resident, Burkett is a natural health and wellness educator. A perennial candidate, Burkett ran unsuccessfully in the Democratic primary for governor in 2006 and the U.S. Senate primary in 2010, garnering 3.8 percent and 6.5 percent of the vote, respectively. The Republican primary race has been narrowed to two viable candidates: U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV and former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon. Mack, 44, is the presumptive front-runner given that his father, Connie Mack III, was a popular senator until retiring in 2001 and his great-grandfather was the legendary baseball manager and Hall of Famer Connie Mack. Also, as a sitting congressman, he has built a political network that affords him the inside track. The race, however, has revealed several shortcomings that could derail Macks U.S. Senate seat bid. Missing more than twice as many votes in the House as the average member since taking office, his work habits are questionable. His wavering policy positions appear to be guided more by opportunism than principle. Further, his arrogant refusal to meet with editorial boards, debate his GOP rivals and participate in candidate forums makes his temperament for public service suspect. Weldon, 58, a physician, was elected to the U.S. House in 1994 and served until 2008, when he decided not to seek re-election in favor of returning to his medical practice. During his 14-year tenure, he proved to be a thoughtful and collegial legislator who placed principle above partisanship, displaying a willingness to work across party lines. A social and fiscal conservative, Weldon is a serious candidate genuinely concerned about the pressing challenges facing our nation. Extremely well informed, he is a realist who has the political courage to make the tough calls that best serve our countrys long-term interests.

This is to the man in Sugarmill Woods whos catching the cats and doing away with them: Well, in Sugarmill Woods, a while back several years, it seems like someone caught all the cats and Sugarmill Woods was free of them. Then they were burdened with rats or mice like crazy. Then they wished they had the cats back. So youve got to pick you want rats or cats? Dan Gelber FLORIDA VOICES Endorsement REBUTTAL I would like to begin by thanking the Chronicle Editorial Board for inviting me to come and present my background, experience and opinions as they relate to my race for superintendent of schools. Although I disagree with the Chronicles endorsement, I do respect the freedom of speech we all have been granted. Each candidate offers their own unique vision for the future of the office they are seeking and every citizen of our county is entitled to their own opinion of each candidate. With that being said, I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to further elaborate on my professional expertise and my personal commitment to the future excellence of our school district. The most important question to ask yourself now is, Am I satisfied with the current superintendents role as the leader of our school district? If the answer to that question is yes, then read no further, as it will not matter which of the Republican candidates makes it through the primary. However, if your answer is no, then please ask yourself, Which candidate offers a better chance of beating the incumbent in November? I believe that my educational background, leadership experience and personal determination make me the only candidate to offer a chance for change in the position of superintendent. I am a firm, fair and consistent leader who will never be influenced by political pressures or ever put my own personal agenda ahead of the best interests of our district. I do not owe favors to anyone and my loyalty will always belong to the voters of this county. I am not a dissatisfied county employee with a vengeful heart. I am a concerned citizen who has been asked over and over again to step into this election and offer the voters a viable candidate for superintendent. I believe that the support and instructional personnel are the essential people who have earned the A district we so proudly boast about. However, it is those same people who have become disconnected to the administration and district office staff. I believe the priority of the superintendent should be to facilitate an effective communication system between the district office and the school-level employees so that each member of the team feels valued and supported. The biggest concern I hear about involves unfair hiring and promoting practices. Each job should be given to the best qualified applicant, and favoritism should be avoided. Our district should strive to be the best, therefore, we should treat our staff the best. After all, it is through their endless dedication, persistence and passion for teaching that makes all of our educational accomplishments possible. I believe it is necessary to clarify the Chronicles reasoning for endorsing Mrs. Balfour. Educational experience gives her the edge, in their opinion. However, what they fail to consider is that Mrs. Balfours nine-month administrative experience either ended voluntarily or involuntarily. Either way, I believe it is a fair assumption that she did not make an adequate administrator and her inability to secure any other leadership position within the Citrus County public school system in the past seven years reaffirms that. My experience during the last five years as an educator and 30 years as a coach has given me the necessary skills and leadership experience to be promoted from teacher to transition coordinator/assistant principal and finally to principal. Due to the uniqueness of Cypress Creek, I am trained and experienced in all aspects of school operations. My job incorporates teaching, counseling, testing, training, professional development, transitioning youth back into a public school, college or workplace, hiring and evaluations of staff and all aspects of financial management. The biggest misconception about Cypress Creek is that it is just a school within a prison. The truth is, our school is yearround and adheres to all county requirements as well as all state requirements, Department of Juvenile Justice requirements and all G4S requirements. While my opponent campaigns and talks about future leadership, it is my daily obligation. This experience has reinforced the necessity of a strong leader who can balance the demanding tasks handed down from multiple agencies. My leadership style encourages a supportive team that produces successful students and satisfied parents while at the same time maintains a safe and secure environment for everyone at the facility, as well as the citizens of our county. In closing, the position of school superintendent should not be used for personal gain, to boost an ego or show off accomplishments. This job demands a successful leader with experience in all aspects of education, business, and community relations. At the end of the day, what this county needs is a superintendent who acknowledges that our children, and the personnel who have direct contact with them, come first. Due to the time spent in school, it is essential that the voters elect a superintendent who will guarantee that the guardians of our children are given all that they need to be enthusiastic teachers and inspiring role models. The Republican Party offers only one candidate who can do this, Rob Cummins. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I would appreciate your support and vote. Robert J. Rob Cummins Republican candidate for superintendent of schools Cummins: Im best equipped to lead OPINIONS INVITED

Eagle Scouts return medals in protestNEW YORK For the physician in Illinois, the attorney in Kentucky, the arts editor in Oregon, their Eagle Scout medals were treasured reminders of youthful achievement. Yet each is parting with his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. I can no longer maintain any connection to an organization which actively promotes such a bigoted and misguided policy, Dr. Robert Wise of Chicago wrote to Scout headquarters in Texas. To that end, I am interested in removing all evidence that I was ever a Scout. Wise, 59, is among several former Eagle Scouts who have taken such steps following the July 17 announcement that the Boy Scouts of America, after a confidential two-year review, were sticking with the long-standing policy of excludingopenly gay youth and adults as members and leaders. Deron Smith, the Boy Scouts national spokesman, said there was no official count at his office of how many medals had been returned. Runway ruins Associated Press Pictured July 10 are ruins which scholars think may be from the legendary Arab Christian city of Hira, just a few hundred yards from the runway of the airport in the holy Shiite Muslim city of Najaf, about 100 miles south of Baghdad, Iraq. Border guards killed; Islamists suspected EL-ARISH, Egypt Masked gunmen killed 16 Egyptian soldiers Sunday at a checkpoint along the border with Gaza and Israel, the first such attack on troops and then the attackers drove off, crashing into Israel, officials said. Egypt blamed Islamist militants from Gaza and Egypts troubled Sinai Peninsula. President Mohammed Morsi said the attackers will pay dearly. The Israeli military said the attack was part of a plot to abduct an Israeli soldier, and two vehicles commandeered by the attackers crashed into Israel, where one blew up. The attack took place around sunset in the Egyptian border town of Rafah. Egyptian state TV said the attack on the checkpoint was carried out by Islamist militants. The report said 16 troops were killed in the attack coordinated between Palestinians who entered Egypt from Gaza and Egyptians in Sinai. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Page A16 MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian forces threatened Sunday to mount a decisive battle for Aleppo even as rebels clawed toward the citys ancient center under intense bombardment and strafing from warplanes. In the capital Damascus, militiamen appeared to step up guerrilla-like forays in central districts once firmly in the regimes hands. The twin fronts reflected the rising stakes for both sides and a possible significant evolution in rebel strategies. Opposition forces appear to be shifting toward more hit-and-run strikes in Damascus and elsewhere to tie up Bashar Assads forces and blur the lines between rebel and government-held territory. The biggest prize of the ambush brigades so far 48 abducted Iranians branded as spies by rebels was put on display in a video that carried a warning that all Iranians in Syria would be captured or killed because of Tehrans strong backing for Assad. Iran said those captured when their bus was commandeered on Saturday were pilgrims visiting an important Shiite shrine on the outskirts of Damascus. The abductions threaten to suck Iran deeper into Syrias civil war and the wider political brinksmanship around the region. Iran claims it has no fighting forces aiding Assad, but it has sharply amplified its criticism of countries supporting the rebels such as neighboring Turkey and Gulf states led by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In further signs of the growing proxy nature of Syrias conflict, Iran was forced to reach out to Turkey and Qatar with appeals to help return the captives. The daylight hijacking on the main airport road in Damascus also raises questions about the regimes ability to control key parts of the capital and protect the symbols of Assads power such as ministries and government offices. The pro-government Al Watannewspaper said the Syrian army is bracing itself for a decisive battle to clear Aleppo, Syrias largest city, from rebels. It gave no possible timetable. Government gunners pounded rebel-held areas to keep militiamen from expanding their hold on the city center, dominated by a medieval castle whose loss would be a deep symbolic blow for Assad. Local activist Mohammad Saeed said government warplanes joined in the attack by strafing rebel positions. Saeed and the Britishbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported heavy shelling and clashes mainly in districts flanking Aleppos historic center: Salaheddine to the southwest and al-Sukkari and Hananou to the northeast. Syrian forces vow decisive showdown for Aleppo Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. NASAs most high-tech Mars rover on Sunday zeroed in on the red planet where it will attempt a tricky celestial gymnastics routine during a seven minutes of terror plummet through the atmosphere. The Curiosity rover was poised to hit the top of the Martian atmosphere at 13,000 mph. If all goes according to script, it will be slowly lowered by cables inside a massive crater in the final few seconds. NASA was ready for the Super Bowl of planetary exploration, said Doug McCuistion, head of the Mars exploration program at NASA headquarters. We score and win or we dont score and we dont win, said McCuistion. If all goes well, mission control at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory should hear a signal at 10:31 p.m. Pacific. The space agency warned confirmation could take longer if an orbiting spacecraft thats supposed to listen for Curiosity during the descent is not in the right place. Curiositys trajectory was so accurate engineers decided to wave off a last chance to tweak its position before atmosphere entry. Not ones to tempt fate, flight controllers planned to break out the good luck peanuts before Curiosity takes the plunge as part of tradition. Curiosity was launched to study whether the Martian environment ever had conditions suitable for microbial life. The voyage to Mars took more than eight months and spanned 352 million miles. The trickiest part of the journey? The landing. Because Curiosity weighs nearly a ton, engineers drummed up a new and more controlled way to set the rover down. Sundays attempt was especially intense because NASA is testing a new landing technique. The last Mars rovers, twins Spirit and Opportunity, were cocooned in air bags and bounced to a stop in 2004. The plans for Curiosity called for a series of braking tricks, similar to those used by the space shuttle, and a supersonic parachute to slow it down. Next: Ditch the heat shield used for the fiery descent. And in a new twist, engineers came up with a way to lower the rover by cable from a hovering rocket-powered backpack. At touchdown, the cords cut and the rocket stage crashes a distance away.

Suspect killed in shootout with police Associated PressOAK CREEK, Wis. An unidentified gunman killed six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee on Sunday in a rampage that left terrified congregants hiding in closets and others texting friends outside for help. The suspect was killed outside the temple in a shootout with police officers. Police called the attack an act of domestic terrorism, but did not provide any details about the gunman or suggest a possible motive. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards did not say whether he specifically targeted the Sikh community. During a chaotic few hours after the first shots were fired, police in tactical gear and carrying assault rifles surrounded the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin with armored vehicles and ambulances. Witnesses struggled with unrealized fears that several shooters were holding women and children hostage inside. One of the first officers to respond to frantic 911 calls seeking help was shot several times as he tended to a wounded victim, and was in critical condition along with two other victims Sunday night, authorities said. We never thought this could happen to our community, said Devendar Nagra, 48, of Mount Pleasant, whose sister escaped injury by hiding as the gunman fired in the temples kitchen. We never did anything wrong to anyone. Edwards said the FBI will lead the investigation because the shootings are being treated as domestic terrorism, or an attack that originated inside the U.S. He said authorities would not say any more about their investigation until Monday morning, including the names of those killed. But it appeared the investigation had moved beyond the temple, as police and FBI agents focused on a neighborhood in nearby Cudahy. Authorities would not comment on the activity, which included evacuating several homes. Jatin Der Mangat, 38, of Racine, said his uncle Satwant Singh Kaleka, the temples president, was one of those shot, but he didnt know the extent of Kalekas injuries. When he later learned people had died, Mangat said it was like the heart just sat down. Edwards said the gunman ambushed one of the first officers to arrive at the temple as the officer tended to a victim outside. A second officer then exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was fatally shot. Tactical units went through the temple and found four people dead inside and two outside, in addition to the shooter. The three wounded were being treated at an area trauma center. Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt, who assisted the investigation, said the police officer had surgery and is expected to survive. Sikhism is a monotheistic faith founded more than 500 years ago in South Asia. It has roughly 27 million followers worldwide. Observant Sikhs do not cut their hair; male followers often cover their heads with turbans which are considered sacred and refrain from shaving their beards. There are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S., according to estimates. The majority worldwide live in India. The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin started in 1997 with about 25 families. Construction on the current temple in Oak Creek began in 2006, according to the temples website.

Associated PressAKRON, Ohio Keegan Bradley only wanted a chance to get into a playoff Sunday at Firestone. All it took was a clutch par, along with a stunning collapse by Jim Furyk, for Bradley to win the Bridgestone Invitational and wrap up a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Bradley closed with a 6under 64, and the final stroke was the most important a 15-foot putt to save par from a plugged lie in the bunker. Furyk, who led for 71 holes and looked solid throughout the final round, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey to throw away a chance at his first win since the 2010 Tour Championship. He missed the green from the fairway. His chip with one foot in the sand barely cleared the bunker and stayed in the thick collar. He hit a weak chip to 5 feet, and his bogey putt never had a chance. Furyk dropped his putter when the ball left his blade. He went from what appeared to be a certain win to a 69 and a tie for second with Steve Stricker, who made four birdies on his last five holes for a 64. Ive got no one to blame but myself, Furyk said. Theres no way I should have made more than 5. Bradley won for the first time since last year in PGA Championship, and now goes to Kiawah Island to defend his title with a lot more confidence. I still cant believe it, he said. Bradley was four shots behind going into the final round, and was six shots back when Furyk opened with three straight birdies. Bradley kept pecking away at the lead, holing a 25-foot birdie putt on the seventh, scrambling for par on the 12th, and starting the back nine with a pair of birdies. Triumph SPORTS BRIEFS Fans struck by lightning after race LONG POND, Pa. Three fans attending the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway were struck by lightning Sunday in the parking lot behind the grandstand. Pocono spokesman Bob Pleban said two fans were taken to a hospital, and there was no immediate word on their condition. The third fan was examined and released. The race was called because of rain with 98 of the 160 scheduled laps completed. The track posted warnings on its Twitter page near the end of the race encouraging fans to seek shelter as severe lightning and heavy winds are in our area. Eagles coachs son found dead BETHLEHEM, Pa. Garrett Reid, the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday morning in his room at the clubs training camp at Lehigh University. He was 29. The police chief at Lehigh, Edward Shupp, said a 911 call was made at 7:20 a.m., and that Garrett Reid was dead when a policeman arrived at the campus dormitory. A cause of death has not been determined. There were no suspicious activities, Shupp said. The 29-year-old Reid struggled with drug abuse for years and was imprisoned for a 2007 highspeed car crash in which another driver was injured. Police found heroin, which Reid admitted to using, and more than 200 pills in his car. When he surrendered to begin serving his sentence in that case, prison guards found Reid had tried to smuggle prescription pills into jail. Reid seemed to have rebounded from his problems in recent times and was assisting the Eagles strength coaches at camp in an unofficial capacity, a notuncommon sort of role for NFL coaches sons. Many of the coaches and staff stay in the Lehigh dorms. In the midst of his legal troubles in his early 20s, Reid said he got a thrill out of being a drug dealer in a lower-income neighborhood just a few miles from his parents suburban Villanova mansion. I liked being the rich kid in that area and having my own high-status life, Reid told a probation officer, according to court testimony in November 2007. I could go anywhere in the hood. They all knew who I was. I enjoyed it. I liked being a drug dealer. At his sentencing hearing, Reid told the judge: I dont want to die doing drugs. I dont want to be that kid who was the son of the head coach of the Eagles, who was spoiled and on drugs and ODd and just faded into oblivion. His younger brother, Britt, also had problems with drug use and was arrested on the same day as Garrett in 2007 for a roadrage encounter.From wire reports Andy Reid Olympics/ B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B4 Lottery numbers/B4 Entertainment/ B5 Classifieds/ B8 Yankees take on Mariners / B3 S PORTS Section B MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Gordon wins at Pocono Associated PressLONG POND, Pa.

PETERSBURG The Baltimore Orioles are having great success in onerun and extra-inning games. Taylor Teagarden broke out of a long slide with an RBI double in the 10th inning, Miguel Gonzalez threw seven scoreless innings, and the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Sunday. Baltimore has won 10 consecutive one-run games dating to June 22 and 11 straight extra-inning contests. We have a great team ... we battle, Gonzalez said. Were not going to give up. Keep working hard, getting better, and things are going to work out for us. Teagarden has just three hits in 28 at-bats overall this season, including a gamewinning homer in the 13th inning on July 14 against Detroit. We were talking in the dugout that we had the right man in the right place, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Teagarden started the season on the disabled list with a strained back and was out until mid-July. Joel Peralta (1-4) walked Mark Reynolds with one out in the 10th and threw a called third strike past Omar Quintanilla. Teagarden, in a 1-for-25 slide, lined a two-out drive to leftcenter. Luis Ayala (3-3) got three outs in the ninth, and Jim Johnson finished for his 32nd save in 35 chances as both teams pitched threehitters. Our guys did a lot of things well to make a difference in a real close game, Showalter said. Well pitched on both sides. Tampa Bay All-Star David Price, bidding for his 15th win of the season, allowed just two hits in eight innings, struck out five and walked three. Miguel matched him, and threw a lot of good pitches, Showalter said. Gonzalez scattered two hits, struck out four and walked four. Gonzalez had a very good game, Price said. In his only other start against the Rays, Gonzalez allowed seven runs in 2 2-3 innings of a 10-1 loss on July 25. I stayed within myself, and stayed confident, Gonzalez said. Kept the ball down. I knew it was going to be a tough ballgame. Price got some help in the second from right fielder Matt Joyce, who made a nice over-the-shoulder running catch on Teagardens twoout drive with two on.

Page B2 MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 Associated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica A tropical storm drenching parts of Jamaica couldnt dampen the countrys joy Sunday over another record-breaking Olympic victory by Usain Bolt. As Bolt re-established his claim to the title of worlds fastest man at the London Olympic Games, thousands of his countrymen cheered him on in an athletics building on the grounds of the national stadium, other public viewing areas and thousands of living rooms as offand-on gusty winds from the storm swept across the Caribbean country. A crowd of roughly 500 people on the grounds of the national stadium cheered wildly as Bolt crossed the finish line of the 100-meter dash in 9.63 seconds, many dancing and chanting Jamaica, Jamaica! One woman dropped to the ground, crying with relieved joy. A group of drummers pounded out a pulsing beat. Nine-year-old Lois Miller was among a group of dancing, flag-waving children. Jamaica No. 1! I knew it! I knew it, she said breathlessly. The intermittent rain and wind from Tropical Storm Ernesto forced the country to abandon plans for an outdoor viewing area at the Kingston stadium, but spectators managed to watch Bolts win in the semifinals less than a minute before a fierce squall swept in and crews had to disassemble the stage and video monitors. Bolt runs, the whole world shakes, said Patricia Ebanks, a vendor in a jerk chicken stall set up outside the stadium. At the Halfway Tree square in Kingston, several hundred people gathered at another outdoor viewing area that attracted hundreds Jamaicans, who stood in a slight drizzle to wave flags and bang kitchen pot lids and blow zuzuvelas. Many mimicked Bolts famous twofingered victory pose. Shot down the American dem, shot dem down big time. Lef dem fi dead, said triumphant fan Roy Collins, speaking in Jamaican patois. The Caribbean island is a hothouse for producing sprinters, and for weeks Jamaicans had enthusiastically debated whether Bolt or fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake would claim top honors. Its Bolt all the way for me. Hes going to take it all, Natalie Henningham, an accountant watching at the national stadium, said before the race. Nearby, George Russell shouted: No way! Blake! The rest of the field, including Americans Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin and another Jamaican, Asafa Powell, barely got a mention. Bolt all the way! The big man a go defend it! Blake have to settle for silver, Bernard Wolfe shouted to neighborhood buddies who were rooting for Blake in the Kingston community of Grants Pen. Blake, Bolts workout partner and blisteringly fast rival, had beaten the Jamaican sensation in the 100and 200-meter finals during the islands Olympic trials. Bolts subsequent withdrawal from a meet in Monaco only added to the intrigue and set up one of the most anticipated story lines of the 2012 Games.

Jamaica rejoices Associated Press Jamaicas Usain Bolt, left, celebrates winning gold alongside silver medalist Yohan Blake of Jamaica on Sunday following the mens 100-meter final in London. Olympic BRIEFS South Africas Pistorius out of 400-meter final On Sunday night, Oscar Pistorius was last in his 400-meter semifinal a day after the double-amputee made his Olympic debut. The South African finished in 46.54 seconds, way slower than his career best of 45.07 and nearly 2 seconds slower than the winner of his heat, world champion Kirani James of Grenada. James immediately walked over to Pistorius after the race and asked to trade name bibs, to keep as a souvenir. The pair shook hands and hugged. Hes an inspiration for all of us. What he does ... takes a lot of courage, just a lot of confidence, James said. Hes very special to our sport. The champions included American Sanya RichardsRoss (womens 400 meters), Ethiopias Tiki Gelana (womens marathon), Kazakhstans Olga Rypakova (womens triple jump), Hungarys Krisztian Pars (mens hammer throw) and Kenyas Ezekiel Kemboi (mens 3,000meter steeplechase). This has just been the experience of a lifetime, said Richard-Ross, who cried after a disappointing third-place finish in Beijing. Ive dreamt about this moment for 20 years. Womens boxing comes to Olympics The Olympics year of the woman hit another milestone when womens boxing made its debut in the games Sunday. The tournament began with 12 entertaining bouts featuring uppercuts, haymakers and footwork that all measure up nicely to the mens amateur sport. Russias Elena Savelyeva won the first fight with a busy jab and strong combinations. U.S. lightweight Queen Underwood lost a close bout with Britains Natasha Jonas. The crowd roared for every fighter, clearly enjoying the tight competition and disciplined styles of the worlds top female boxers. McKayla Maroney was all set to add the vault title to her team gymnastics gold with the U.S. when she made a costly mistake. She appeared to land her second vault on the backs of her heels. Her feet slid out from under her, and she plopped on the mat, a look of shock crossing her face. I really didnt deserve to win a gold medal if I fall on my butt, Maroney said. I was still happy with a silver, but its still just sad. Sandra Izbasa of Romania won the gold, and Russias Maria Paseka took the bronze. Britains Louis Smith and Hungarys Krisztian Berki finished with identical 16.066 scores on the pommel horse, but Berki got the gold because his execution score of 9.166 was .10 points better. A tiebreaker also cost Smith in Beijing, when he dropped from second to bronze on the same event. Also, Zou Kai won his fifth career gold medal, defending his title on floor exercise. He already had one gold from Chinas victory in the mens team competition last week, and has three more from the Beijing Games. Serena Williams adds Olympic title Serena Williams added another Olympic title when she teamed with sister Venus to beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 in the womens doubles final. Serena also won the womens singles tournament and is tennis first double gold medalist at an Olympics since Venus won singles and doubles at the 2000 Sydney Games. The sisters also won the doubles gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Third-seeded Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova of Russia took the bronze by beating the top-seeded U.S. pair of Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond 4-6, 6-4, 6-1. American women match scoring recordDiana Taurasi had 22 points and the U.S. womens basketball team matched their Olympic scoring record in a 114-66 rout of China. The Americans 38th consecutive victory in Olympic play gave them the top seed in the group for the quarterfinals. The U.S. will meet Canada on Tuesday. Angel McCoughtry scored 16 as the women equaled the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, but fell well short of the womens Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004. France finished undefeated in pool play, beating Russia 6554, and will play the Czech Republic in the quarters. Turkey meets Russia and Australia faces China in the other matchups in the next round. Jennings, May-Treanor on track for gold Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor beat Italy in straight sets in the quarterfinals to remain on track for a third consecutive Olympic gold medal. The Americans earned a berth in the semifinals against Beijing bronze medalists Xue Chen and Zhang Xi. The Chinese team has beaten the twotime defending Olympic champions the last three times theyve met. The No. 2 U.S. womens team of Jennifer Kessy and April Ross also advanced, beating the Czech Republic 25-23, 21-18. The Americans next play reigning world champions Juliana and Larissa of Brazil.

Associated PressNEW YORK Raul Ibanez homered and drove in three runs as Freddy Garcia and the New York Yankees wrapped up a long and losing homestand with a win, beating the Seattle Mariners 6-2 Sunday. Garcia got his 150th career victory while Ichiro Suzuki continued to be a one-hit wonder for the AL East leaders. The Yankees won for only the sixth time in 16 games. They went 4-5 against Boston, Baltimore and Seattle on their longest stay at Yankee Stadium so far this season. Garcia (5-5) hung around for five innings and preserved a one-run lead with his final pitch, retiring Kyle Seager with two runners on base.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 10, Indians 8, 10 innings DETROIT Miguel Cabreras two-run homer capped a stunning five-run rally by Detroit with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Cleveland has lost nine straight, and this one slipped away in unthinkable fashion. With two outs and nobody on and the Indians up 8-5 Chris Perez (0-3) walked Alex Avila and pinch-hitter Andy Dirks. Austin Jackson doubled home a run, and Omar Infantes two-run single tied it. Blue Jays 6, Athletics 5 OAKLAND, Calif. Edwin Encarnacion hit a home run and drove in two runs, Yunel Escobar also drove in two runs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland Athletics 6-5 Sunday to salvage a series split. Anthony Gose and Kelly Johnson also drove in runs for the Blue Jays, who have won two straight after ending a six-game losing streak. Aaron Laffey (3-2) won for the third time in four decisions after allowing four runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out four.Red Sox 6, Twins 4BOSTON Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer, Franklin Morales turned in another solid substitute start and the Boston Red Sox averted a four-game sweep with a 6-4 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. Gonzalez finished with three RBIs. Carl Crawford added three singles, an RBI and a leaping catch for the Red Sox on his 31st birthday.White Sox 4, Angels 2 CHICAGO Pinch-hitter A.J. Pierzynski tied a White Sox record by homering in his fifth consecutive game, a go-ahead, two-run drive in the seventh inning off Jason Isringhausen that led Chicago over the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 Sunday.

Gordon had been hit by a string of bad breaks this season and knew he needed wins over the final six races before the Chase cutoff to have any shot at running for a fifth championship during the 10-race playoffs. Gordon, who also won a rain-shortened race at Pocono in 2007, set the record for most career wins at Pocono with six. Kasey Kahne was second, followed by Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart. With the storms coming spotters told their drivers the heavy rain was coming Johnson was in prime position to follow last weeks win in Indy with another trip to Victory Lane. Something, though, went wrong with Johnsons car and he made contact with Kenseth. Johnson dropped back but suffered no real damage. Kenseth touched the wall and slid down the track. Hamlin had nowhere to go but into the side of the No. 17. Hamlin was taken to the infield care center and complained of abdominal discomfort but was released. Gordon, sixth in the restart necessitated by Kurt Buschs wreck, took the lead. victory over Roger Federer at the All England Club came less than a month after the Swiss great beat Murray on the same grass court. But Murray couldnt make it two gold medals Sunday. He and partner Laura Dobson lost to Belarus pair Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi 2-6, 6-3, 10-8 in the mixed doubles final later in the day. As soon as Murray finished off Federer in a rare dominant day against a player with seven Wimbledon titles the roars grew to a crescendo, the Union Jacks waving every which way. Brilliant! declared Julian Peltenburg, a Wimbledon local who brought his 8-year-old son, Monty. Its the first time. Its history here. Wimbledon and Olympic officials blocked walkways to the picnic area, holding fans back because the grounds were packed. Many of those same fans had no hesitation at ordering others around if their view of the match was impaired for a moment. Some grew testy when they couldnt join the party. Police ushered fans out afterward to keep order. For a typical championship Sunday at Wimbledon, fans camp out all night for grounds passes, looking to get seat on the hill. No chance this time. Those tickets sold out months ago. Its a good atmosphere, but its strange because usually Wimbledon is here, said Phil OConnor, 26, of London. Its a bit more raucous. Usually its quite busy and you get good support for Murray every year. Its good to see. It was also a day to be quick on ones feet. Those with tickets to the mens bronze-medal match rushed to find an open seat on the grass or at least to stand. Brits of all ages oohed and aahed with each point as it quickly became clear that after all of Murrays heartbreaking near misses, it was their guys day to shine, and right at home playing for his country. making up ground on the outside Richards-Ross got stronger, not weaker, this time over the last 100 meters. She surged to the finish, won by about a bodys length and punched her fist when she crossed the line in 49.55 seconds Sunday night to give the U.S. its first track and field gold medal of the London Olympics. I just kept saying, You can do this, you can do this, Richards-Ross said. I just dug really deep and Im very happy. Defending champion Christine Ohuruogu of Britain finished second in 49.70 and American DeeDee Trotter, decked out in red, white and blue glitter on her face, won the bronze in 49.72. This moment, though, belonged to Richards-Ross. At the end, she wrapped herself in the American flag and went to the stands to embrace her husband, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Aaron Ross, who took time off from NFL training camp to travel to London. You finally did it, you finally did it, babe, he told his wife. Enjoy the moment. Imagine what the trophy case at their house must look like. Ross has two Super Bowl rings, won when he played for the New York Giants. His wife now has an individual gold to go with two others she won in previous Olympic relays, with more possible in this years relays. The worlds top runner at this distance for much of the past four years, RichardsRoss has nonetheless been waiting impatiently for another shot at the individual gold she thought shed grab in 2008. That time, the final 100 meters of her race was a disaster. Leading coming into the stretch, she fell back dramatically, and a few minutes later, Ohuruogu was clutching the gold and Richards-Ross was crying in the lower level of the Birds Nest. Quite a different result this time around and quite a different scene at the finish. The run was phenomenal, Richards-Ross said. Its very, very challenging to get on the Olympic stage and give your best performance, to balance your emotions and physical. Its a huge weight off my shoulders. I kept telling myself, You are the champ. You are the champ. To go out there and actually accomplish it is really fantastic. three innings because of upper-back spasms and was replaced by Will Rhymes. The injury was not thought to be serious. NOTES: Showalter said the team should have a rehab program timeframe in a couple days for DH Jim Thome, on the disabled list due to a herniated disk in his neck. Thome received an epidural injection on Friday. ... Tampa Bay DH Luke Scott (right oblique) has resumed onfield batting practice. ... The Rays held their first bark in the park event, with approximately 450 dogs in attendance. A section in left field was reserved for dog owners and their pets.

Furyk had a one-shot lead playing the 18th, and got one big break when he pulled his tee shot into the trees and it ricocheted out into the fairway. Thats where it all started to go wrong. He went long of the green and the ball hopped out of the bunker and into the thick collar, forcing him to put his left foot into the sand. He flubbed the chip, just over the bunker into more thick grass, and his chip was a clunker, rolling out to just over 5 feet. Bradley also went long and plugged into the sand, and he blasted out to 15 feet behind the hole. The dynamics changed so suddenly. There was a chance for a four-way playoff if Bradley and Furyk missed, and Louis Oosthuizen made his birdie putt form just outside 12 feet. Bradley, whose putting carried him to a comeback in the PGA Championship, hit a pure stroke for the par to finish on 13-under 267. Then, it was up to Furyk to force the playoff. I hit my worst putt of the week, Furyk said. Bradley has three wins in two years on the PGA Tour, including a major and a World Golf Championship. He is only the 11th player to have won a major and a WGC. Stricker found his putting stroke at Firestone not that it was ever deep in hiding and showed that down the stretch with his closing stretch of birdies. It was an important performance for Stricker, who moved up three spots to No. 10 in the Ryder Cup standings. Furyk is No. 11, followed by Rickie Fowler at No. 12. Bradley moved to No. 4, and bumped out Hunter Mahan from the top eight for automatic spots after the PGA Championship next week. Oosthuizen closed with a 69 to finish alone in fourth. Justin Rose (67) and Rory McIlroy (68) were another shot behind. Tiger Woods played bogeyfree for a 66, his lowest score since a 65 in the second round at Bay Hill at the end of March. He was never in the tournament, 11 shots behind going into the final round, though he picked up the tiniest of consolations. He now has back-to-back finishes in the top 10 on the PGA Tour for the first time in nearly three years. And he at least heads to Kiawah Island feeling good about his game. I hit a lot of good shots and never really sniffed making a bogey all day, said Woods, who played his final 23 holes without a bogey. The nature of the course changed drastically with one-quarter inch of rain overnight, and a burst of showers that stopped play for nearly three hours Sunday morning. Shots to the green were spinning back instead of bouncing forward. Pars no longer were good enough.

Mexican singer dies at 93 MEXICO CITY Chavela Vargas who defied gender stereotypes to become one of the most legendary singers in Mexico, died Sunday at age 93. Her friend and biographer Maria Cortina said Vargas died at a hospital in the city of Cuernavaca, where she had been admitted for heart and respiratory problems. Vargas rose to fame flouting the Roman Catholic countrys preconceptions of what it meant to be a female singer: singing lusty ranchera songs while wearing mens clothes, carrying a pistol, drinking heavily and smoking cigars. Sheen donates to Reds fund CINCINNATI Actor Charlie Sheen a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan, has pledged to donate $50,000 to the teams Community Fund, matching the amount broadcaster Marty Brennaman raised for charity in return for having his head shaved on the field. Sheen and father Martin Sheen a Dayton native, were at the Reds game against Pittsburgh on Friday and saw Brennaman get his head shaved. Brennaman had promised to shave his hair if the Reds won 10 consecutive games and said he would do it publicly if fans donated at least $20,000 to the Reds fund. That drive generated $50,000, and Charlie Sheen announced Sunday he planned to match that amount. Shakespeare fest has unlikely star RENO, Nev. This summers Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival has produced an unlikely star: a pit bull named Michael who narrowly escaped euthanasia. Festival organizers and audience members say the 6-year-old American Staffordshire terrier has turned out to be a hoot in his role as Crab the dog in the comedy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona. They say Michael plays a miscreant of sorts who doesnt care to please his owner, and his different spontaneous reactions to his owners laments prompt laughter. His real owner, Michelle Okashima of Incline Village, said Michael was scheduled for euthanasia in 2006 in Reno after he was found running loose and he went unclaimed. The festival continues through Aug. 26. C HRISTY L EMIRE AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The Dark Knight Rises topped the box office for the third week in a row, making $36.4 million this past weekend. The finale in Christopher Nolans epic Batman trilogy has now made nearly $355 million domestically alone, according to Sunday estimates from Warner Bros. Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell in a new take on the thriller that provided Arnold Schwarzenegger with one of his best-loved actions roles in 1990, opened in second place with $26 million, Columbia Pictures said. And the Fox family comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days debuted at No. 3 with $14.7 million. Warner Bros. head of distribution Dan Fellman said he wasnt surprised by the films strong showing in its third week; it only dropped 41 percent compared to the 43 percent drop in week three that The Dark Knight experienced in 2008. He also said the film is getting back on track to perform at its expected pace following the opening-night shooting in Aurora, Colo., that left 12 dead and 58 others injured. The support from audiences across North America has been outstanding, Fellman said. The movie speaks for itself, and the unfortunate tragedy that took place hurt everyone. Were obviously very moved by the events that took place. The Dark Knight Rises has now set an IMAX record, he said, with nearly $48 million of the films gross coming from the large-screen format. Nolan shot more than 40 percent of the film in IMAX with the intention of having it projected that way. Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com, said he was surprised that The Dark Knight Rises held so well in its third week. It was the clear runaway favorite. I thought it would be a race for the No. 1 spot with Total Recall, he said. The Dark Knight is rising above the fray and word of mouth is just tremendous on the film and people keep going back to see it. Rory Bruer, Sonys president of worldwide distribution, said Total Recall opened close to the studios high-$20 million estimate. But it was also No. 1 in many of the dozen international markets in which it opened, including India, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand for a total of $6.2 million. It expands to Europe and Latin America in upcoming weeks. Farrell stars in this version of the futuristic Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale as a man who struggles to piece together his memory after he discovers the life hes been living is a fabrication. Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel co-star. The thing about Total Recall is that its always been made for the world stage, and were off to a good start opening in smaller markets this week, Bruer said. Overall when you consider this movie was made for such a reasonable price ($125 million), for the scenario of what we got, weve opened really well. I think were going to be very pleased with the result. Also this week, the Universal Pictures comedy Ted made an additional $5.5 million to cross the $200 million mark domestically; it also had a huge weekend internationally, taking in $32 million. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane directed for the first time and provides the voice of a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking teddy bear whos the lifelong best friend of Mark Wahlbergs character. Its very, very R-rated but its the quintessential word-of-mouth movie, Dergarabedian said. You see it and youve got to take your friends to see it so they can believe what youre saying.

B6 M ONDAY, A UGUST 6, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Eric Berne was a Canadian-born psychiatrist who created transactional analysis and wrote Games People Play. He said: A loser doesnt know what hell do if he loses, but talks about what hell do if he wins. A winner doesnt talk about what hell do if he wins, but knows what hell do if he loses. Recently I have been asked by students and by readers of this column how to count losers as declarer in a trump contract. I was then surprised to discover that I have not specifically covered this topic in any of my theme weeks. Lets lose no time in rectifying that oversight. Assuming your hand has more trumps than the dummy, you look at your 13 cards, take dummys high cards into account, and work out what tricks you might lose. You are South, in four spades. How many losers do you have? You should see four: one spade, two diamonds and one club. And given that the lead has been the diamond queen, if you win the first or second diamond trick and immediately play a trump, you should lose those four tricks. How can you eliminate that extra loser? There are two common ways of getting rid of a loser. First, you can take a discard. Look at the hearts. That suit will provide three winners, and on the third round you can discard a diamond, cutting your loser count to three. So, after taking the diamond ace, cash the heart queen (the honor from the shorter side first), play a heart to dummys king, and pitch a diamond on the heart ace. Then, with your loser count not too high, draw trumps as quickly as possible. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Locked Up Abroad Drugs, Inc. The Cannabis industry. Drugs, Inc.

During visits to Grandmas house, our daughter had to entertain herself in a spare bedroom because Grandmas dogs didnt like kids, and Grandma wouldnt lock up her babies for the sake of ours. We planned family trips, but Grandma would always cancel at the last minute. We invited her to school plays and recitals, but Grandma said they were boring and told our daughter that she had no talent. Mom has a terrible temper and would slap our daughter for things like talking while the TV was on. Grandma did give our daughter lots of gifts, and our daughter always thanked her. But the gifts were thoughtless anything Mom could pick up cheaply, with no consideration of age, gender or interests. She once bought our teenage girl a toy that was appropriate for a 3-year-old boy. My daughter is a young adult now. She is polite to her grandmother when she sees her and sends holiday cards with short notes, but otherwise avoids her. She considers Grandma to be a well-intentioned lunatic. The problem is, Grandma has decided that my daughter owes her attention since she was such a loving, wonderful grandmother, and she is upset about the very sensible boundaries our daughter is drawing for involving Grandma in her personal life. I am being blamed for the distance between them and am expected to fix it. Grandma is hypersensitive. Suggesting that she might need to do things differently makes her furious. Any ideas? In the Middle Dear Middle: You need to stay out of this as much as possible. Your daughter should continue to send cards and thank her grandmother for any gifts, and you can encourage her to periodically phone Grandma or email her with whatever updates she is willing to share. Beyond that express sympathy when Mom wants more, and ignore as much as you can. This isnt your responsibility. Dear Annie: An acquaintance sits beside me at the counter in a local diner several times a week. We both go there because neither of us likes to eat alone. Heres the problem: When Bill comes in, he sits beside me, but wont speak unless I speak to him first. I actually have waited for more than an hour, and he wouldnt talk. Once I do get him to speak, he cant hold up his end of the conversation. Hell mumble a few words, and then hes done. During a two-hour dinner, Bill said fewer than 14 words. I counted. Yet he always makes a beeline for the open stool beside me. By the way, Bill does this with everyone, not just me. I dont want to hurt his feelings, but this is so exasperating, its affecting my health. Frustrated in Texas Dear Texas: Bill sounds socially awkward. Having a conversation is difficult and stressful for him. He sits near you because, for whatever reason, you make him feel comfortable. He doesnt expect you to converse with him, although he probably appreciates the brief attempts. If you can understand that Bill considers you good company as you are, you might not feel so pressured to get him to talk, which ought to alleviate some of your frustration. Dear Annie: Patty was worried that her husband would find her uninteresting once the kids left home. One of the best empty nest activities is bridge. Its a very social activity, and strategy games are thought to help prevent dementia and other age-related problems. There are bridge clubs throughout the United States, and once you learn the game, you can travel with your spouse for a combination of bridge playing and touring. My wife and I met through bridge. Patty can get more information at the American Contract Bridge League website at acbl.org.

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.

State and federal organizations limit mosquito sprayBUSTERTHOMPSON Chronicle InternLECANTO Whenever a problem needs solving, the solution is usually found at the source. The Citrus County Mosquito Control District (CCMCD) in Lecanto doesnt have that luxury when attempting to rid Citrus County of mosquitoes. Since 1987, arthropod control agencies like the CCMCD have been constrained by state and federal organizations regulating lands designated as environmentally sensitive and biologically productive. Some of these areas are prime recreational and residential areas, but all of them are prime breeding sites for mosquitoes. When the CCMCD does want to spray in these protected lands, it must file a permitting plan with that specific agency and wait for a confirmation or denial.

According to a preliminary report from Florida Highway Patrol, a 2004 Dodge truck was traveling east shortly before 2:30 a.m. on State Road 44 near the intersection of Rock Crusher Road. For unknown reasons, the driver reportedly lost control of the truck, drove off the roadway and struck a curb. Authorities said the truck became airborne and traveled into the parking lot of the Kangaroo gas station, where it collided with a 2000 Dodge Durango SUV and 1987 Dodge Aries. The driver suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The unoccupied vehicles received an estimated $6,000 and $3,000 worth of damage, respectively. The identity of the driver had not been released as of press time Sunday pending the notification of next of kin. FHP states the crash is still under investigation; therefore, details about the incident are subject to change.Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at 352-564-2924 or swiles@chronicleonline.com. Outpouring of complaints DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleYards and streets in an unincorporated area of Crystal River just north of Bicentennial Park have been flooding due to the heavy rains the county has experienced. Persistent flooding has low-lying neighborhoods ire up A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The rainy season of 2012 will be memorable to many for various reasons, but for Sandra Jaeger and her neighbors in near the Crystal River Airport, its been harrowing. Even before Tropical Storm Debby, we have been flooded over here and we have tried everything to get help, but no one is helping us, Jaeger said. Emotions are frayed and Jaeger said she and her neighbors need help from the authorities in providing drainage relief. I found a syringe with blood in it the other day in my yard, and my neighbors foot is infected because of this. We dont have clean water and people are not using their septics, she said. Tom Davis, president of Crystal Aero Group Inc, which operates the airport, said parts of the facility have been under water, as well. Its because the ground is sodden and each time rain falls it gathers, Davis said. Maybe there is something clogged in the drainage systems, but I think it is because of the persistent rainfall. County officials said the excessive rains, coupled with the contours of the area, are making it ripe for flooding. Those homes are in low-lying areas, said Lindsay Ubinas, county spokeswoman. Ubinas said county crews have been out in the area, placing signage warning of water levels.

Debbie Davenport: She loved her children, Inverness Editors note: On Wednesday, Aug. 1, authorities were called to an Inverness residence where the bodies of Joseph Davenport and Deborah Davenport were found. An investigation indicates the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide. In this Postscript, loved ones reflect on fond memories in the years preceding the recent tragedy.NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS Debbie Davenport was the kind of mom every child longs for. From willingly and enthusiastically driving a van full of girls across the state to their soccer match to working the concession stand during a high school football game not to mention making the worlds best chewy, fudgy brownies Debbie was devoted to her kids: Tiffany, 22; Joey Jr., 15, and Savanna, 14. When my mom was around, there was always fun and laughter, said Tiffany Davenport. Deborah May Davenport, 47, and her estranged husband, Joseph Howard Davenport, 48, died Aug. 1 at the familys home in Inverness. Born in Miami Beach, at age 8 Debbie moved with her family to Cinnaminson, N.J. where she grew up. Her younger sister, Cyndi Weber, remembers a fun childhood roller skating together, being in Girl Scouts together. She was a cheerleader in high school for football and basketball, and in her junior year our boys varsity basketball team went to state Group 3 championship, so that was an exciting time for her, Weber said. After high school, Debbie attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia, graduating in 1984.

Rouse, a New York man who had been based at Eglin Air Force Base at the time. Rouse died in 2006. Authorities told the Northwest Florida Daily News Rouses relatives provided two hats he frequently wore for DNA testing. Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office Investigator Travis Robinson said DNA from the hats matched DNA evidence found on a rug under Ainsworths body. Rouse had been Ainsworths neighbor. Robinson said Rouse had given conflicting stories to the cases original investigators. From staff and wire reports Page A3MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Today, at the city council meeting, officials hope to launch a study to address disparities in the citys water rates. The city acknowledgeswater rates appear to be creating a situation where certain high-consumption commercial users pay more for service within the city than would be the case in some other communities. Officials cite the following possible reasons for the disparity:The city does not have a separate rate structure for residential and commercial users.The conservationbased rate structure implemented in 2007 has smaller rate tiers (in terms of the consumption thresholds) than those found in some other comparable jurisdictions.The rate for the highest consumption threshold is significantly higher than what is in place for some other comparable jurisdictions. The city has proposed a 3 percent rate increase set to begin Oct. 1. Council members will also:Hear from Capt. Danny Linhart about crime figures in the city for the second quarter of 2012;Discuss efforts to divest the city of the Yeomans Park property;Consider proposed budget adjustments for the current fiscal year; Consider making a change to tree board bylaws allowing one board member to reside outside the city limits; Hear a status updateon the project to improve Cutler Spur Boulevard.Chronicle reporter A.B.

DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle Associated PressPORT ROYAL, Jamaica Tropical Storm Ernesto brushed past the Caribbean countrys southern coast Sunday, causing heavy rains but few problems as it took a course expected to carry it by Honduras and across the Yucatan Peninsula into the Gulf of Mexico. Forecasters at Jamaicas Meteorological Service said rain was tapering off, but light to moderate showers from squalls were still present over most of the island, especially eastern areas. In Jamaicas southern capital of Kingston, Ernesto dumped some rain but left no noticeable damage. Island authorities urged people in flood-prone areas to stay on alert. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday evening Ernesto was getting a bit more organized as it moved away from Jamaica. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Florence, which formed far out in the Atlantic, stopped strengthening by early Sunday and was no longer expected to gain strength, the hurricane center said.

This defied a Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade that abortion is legal until the fetus becomes viable, usually early in the third trimester. A yes vote was to pass the bill. Rich Nugent, Yes. Census Bureau, Senate Confirmations: Members voted, 261-116, to send President Obama a bill setting five-year terms for directors of the U.S. census to protect them from political influence. A yes vote backed a bill (S 679) that also reduces from about 1,200 to about 1,000 the number of presidential appointees other than judges subject to the Senate's cumbersome confirmation process. Nugent, No. Iran Sanctions: Members voted, 421-6, to toughen U.S. economic sanctions on Iran. A yes vote was to pass a bill denying access to U.S. financial markets to any global entity whose investments or purchases boost Iran's nuclear program. The bill (HR 1905) was to be signed by President Obama. Nugent, Yes. GOP Tax Cuts: Members passed, 256-171, a GOP bill to extend Bush-era tax cuts for all incomes through 2013.

Democratic Tax Cuts: Members defeated, 170-257, a Democratic bill to extend Bush tax cuts through 2013 for couples with incomes under $250,000 and singles under $200,000, or 98 percent of taxpayers. A yes vote was to also raise taxes next year on the top 2 percent of payers. (HR 8) Nugent, No. GOP Tax Code: Members passed, 232-189, a bill stating the House Republicans' wish list for any overhaul of the Tax Code debated in the next Congress. A yes vote called for making the code flatter, closing loopholes, ending breaks, cutting rates and limiting tax revenue to 18 or 19 percent of GDP (HR 6169) Nugent, Yes. Home-Mortgage Deduction: Members defeated, 188-235, a Democratic motion stating that any Tax Code overhaul should retain deductions for home mortgages and charitable contributions. The underlying bill (HR 6169) did not identify tax breaks Republicans would like to see repealed. A yes vote backed the motion. Nugent, No. Emergency Drought Aid: Members approved, 223-197, $383 million this year in drought aid for livestock producers and certain other recipients. The aid awaits Senate action. A yes vote backed the aid over criticism of House GOP leaders for having delayed a new farm bill. (HR 6233) Nugent, Yes. Cyber-Security Impasse: Senators failed, 52-46, to reach 60 votes for ending GOP blockage of a bill setting up a voluntary system to help companies fend off cyber-attacks that could cause chaos in America.

Purple Heart Recognition Day Commission declares day of appreciation Special to the ChronicleCitrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a proclamation to members of the Aaron A. Weaver Chapter 776 Military Order of the Purple Heart at their regular meeting on July 24 proclaiming Aug. 7, 2012, as Purple Heart Recognition Day in Citrus County. The Purple Heart, originally known as the Military Badge of Merit, was established at the order of Gen. George Washington, 230 years ago, on Aug. 7, 1782, and is now the oldest military decoration in the world in present use. The Purple Heart is a combat award exclusively for those members of the Armed Forces of the United States who are killed, died of wounds or were wounded by an enemy instrument of war. The organization known as the Military Order of the Purple Heart, which is the only congressionally chartered veterans organization exclusively for combat-wounded veterans, was formed 80 years ago in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of Purple Heart recipients. More than 1.7 million members of the Armed Forces of the United States have been awarded the Purple Heart for their battlefield sacrifices since first adopted as a combat award by the War Department on Feb. 22, 1932. Breakfast slatedWest Citrus Elks Lodge 2693 will host a buffet breakfast and program at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, commemorating the 230th anniversary of the Purple Heart and honoring all Purple Heart recipients. The families of those who fell in combat and all combat-wounded veterans and their guests are invited. Attendees are requested to register for the free breakfast by emailing carriejenetteclemons@yahoo.com, or calling Carrie at 352-628-1633. Indicate the number in your party.

mosquito has) gone through the life cycle, said Joel Jacobson, director of the CCMCD. According to Jacobson, numerous managing authorities monitor about 40 percent of the county. I really dont understand their reasoning when they say the mosquito is a valuable part of the ecosystem, said Jacobson. Im sure (the mosquito is) a food source, but theres very little usable protein in a mosquito. A bat will go eat the larger sources of nutrients. Steve Watkins with the countys mosquito control district has hands-on experience with mosquitoes and the organizations that indirectly protect their breeding grounds. When you have areas that you cant (treat), its bad for us because we get the complaints (from people) right next to the source, but we can only treat their roads and not the source, said Watkins. Reasons for why the mosquito is considered environmentally sensitive and productive is unclear, but Jacobson wants state and federal institutions to become aware the mosquito is a major pest. A lot of times I know the federal government has inthe-lab testing, not realworld testing, and those determinations that are made are pushed down to the states, said Jacobson. Its changing slowly because the government is becoming more receptive to actual real-world data. Gradually, some establishments have recognized the importance of ridding the insect from tourist hotspots, and grant the CCMCD with easy access to their lands. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the Division of Forestry has been the most beneficial in allowing us to spray, said Jacobson. I dont know if their manager knows that for people that like to go pleasure hiking, its not just realistic with a (mosquito) landing rate of 25 per minute. The CCMCDs goal for the future is to move away from adulticide spray and move to a more organic and bacterial form of larvicide, getting to the start of the mosquitoes life. I want to move away from the spray and go to pure larvicide, but in order to do that, we need to come up with some way for these people to get on the same side as us, said Jacobson.

But when it comes flooding on private property, there is not much we can do. Our crews will be out there whenever it rains to check on the homeowners to see if they need sand bags or any other assistance, Ubinas said. According to data from Southwest Florida Water Management District, 36.28 inches of rain fell between January and July this year. The average annual amounts of rainfall this area of the state receives during that period is 31.77 inches. As of Aug. 3, aquifer levels were 2.55 feet. According to the National Weather Service, there is a 50 percent chance for rain Monday.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. found a few months ago, working as a visual fashion merchandiser for Bealls, dressing mannequins. She met her husband on a blind date in New Jersey. Joe was born in Willingboro, near Philadelphia. They decided to raise their family in Florida and moved to Inverness in the mid-1990s. Debbie worked various jobs as a substitute teacher, at local restaurants like Cinnamon Sticks and Beef O Bradys but being a mom was always her top priority. Her first career was raising her family, said her aunt Bernice Hull. She did Girl Scouts with us, field trips, family vacations, Tiffany said. She went to our soccer games and cross country meets, rowing. Tiffany said a perfect example of her mothers devotion to her kids was high school grad night in Orlando the night before a state rowing competition in Tampa. At 2 a.m. Debbie drove to Orlando to get Tiffany and then drove to Tampa in time for her competition. She was just like that, and not just for her own children. She was the mom her kids friends referred to as their second mom. She loved young people, always had a plate of food or a listening ear for anyone who needed it. She had a young spirit and enthusiasm and she liked to have fun. However, she wasnt a pushover. She could be tough and a tad bit a lot bossy, said her sister. She had a playful sense of humor and loved sarcasm. She had a strong personality; she got things done, said brotherin-law Jake Weber. As for Joe Davenport, the Rev. Greg Kell, the familys pastor, said the manner in which a person dies does not define his or her whole life. Despite the tragic circumstances, the Davenport children wanted to talk about their dad, whom they also lost and loved. He was hilarious, said daughter Savanna, adding that he was a major source of entertainment for the family especially his taste in clothes. While Debbie was the style guru, Joe preferred wearing the same clothes a blue checked shirt, jean shorts, mandals (clunky sandals) and a Panama hat that was smaller than his head. He bragged about us kids allthe time, Tiffany said. Joey Jr. recalled taking a twoweek trip with his dad, a commercial truck driver, in his big-rig truck. We had a tree in the back yard that had a branch over the swing set, and for whatever reason he decided to climb the tree. He was going to jump down on the swing or something, Tiffany said. But halfway he got stuck, and we had to coax him down. There was never a dull moment in the household. Debbie Davenport loved reading. She listened to classic rock the Beatles, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd. She loved to crochet and needlepoint. She was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church and a Miami Dolphins fan. She knew how to talk about football, said son Joey. Joe Davenport liked fishing and woodcrafting. Debbie took forever to get into the shower. She was the first to volunteer for anything. She recently lost 36 pounds and looked great. She finally had her dream job and was happy, really happy. She always looked for the brighter side of things, Tiffany said. She was my rock, and my best friend. She wanted her kids to give back to the community, and when they moved here, they made Inverness their home and their life, Cyndi Weber said. Thats now reflected in how this town has responded. A number of fundraisers are planned to benefit the Davenport children, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 8, at the Inverness and Crystal River Beef O Bradys locations. From 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies will be volunteering as servers, donating 100 percent of their tips. Also, 15 percent of the days profits will go toward the fund. An account FBO Tiffany, Joey and Savanna Davenport is set up at Old Florida National Bank, 1777 W. Main St., Inverness. Watch the Chroniclefor further information about additional fundraisers. A celebration of life memorial service for Debbie and Joe Davenport will be at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 6, at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Inverness.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com or 352-564-2927.A8MONDAY, AUGUST6, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 527-0012 SAR002402 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

JOHNSEEWER Associated PressCLEVELAND For the past three years, Taura Tates mornings have revolved around caring for a woman who suffers from the effects of a stroke and diabetes. She cooks her oatmeal for breakfast, helps with showers and makes sure she takes the right medicine. Without the help of a home health aide, the woman, whos in her 70s, would be in a nursing home instead of living on her own. But Tate has her own struggles. Up until a recent promotion, her pay amounted to what she could make at McDonalds. She doesnt get health or retirement benefits and has worked at five agencies in the Cleveland area, some simultaneously, to guarantee shell have enough clients. If they go into the hospital or go on vacation, you dont get paid, she said. Demand for home health care workers is soaring as baby boomers the 78 million Americans born between 1946 and 1964 get older and states try to save money by moving people out of more costly nursing homes. But filling more than 1 million new home care positions over the next decade will be a challenge. Most home health aides are paid about the same as maids and manicurists and dont get sick days or health insurance themselves. Many who are self-employed must pay for their own gas for driving to appointments and cover their own medical bills if theyre hurt on the job. The U.S. Labor Department projects that home health and personal care aides will be among the fastest-growing jobs over the next decade, adding 1.3 million positions and increasing at a rate higher than any other occupation. If those jobs cant be filled, many older Americans are likely to face living with relatives or in nursing homes, which will only cost families and taxpayers more money. Some aides say they have no choice but to say no when people call looking for help because they cant afford to take on someone else. Its hard because I love helping people, but at the same time Ive got three kids, said Kimberly Ingram, a home health aide in Lancaster, S.C. When you add up your miles, your gas money, you dont make nothing. Her part-time job delivering newspapers pays better when you factor in the time and travel some home care jobs need, she said. Nearly half of all home care workers live at or below the poverty level, and many receive government benefits such as food stamps, unions and advocacy groups say. The median pay a year ago was $9.70 per hour 4 cents less than fast-food workers and short-order cooks, according to the most recent statistics from the Labor Department. Agencies that supply home health workers blame states and the federal government for failing to increase reimbursement rates for Medicaid and Medicare patients at a time when costs are going up. Home health services are an easy target for cuts because theyre not required by federal law, and legislators in states with big deficits say they have no choice but to cut Medicaid spending, the second-costliest item for states behind education. At the same time, some states, including Ohio, are changing how they coordinate medical care and trying to move some of the most expensive and hard-to-treat patients into homeand community-based settings instead of nursing homes. The result, home care agencies say, is that theres little room for them to make a profit. And that means they can go only so far to attract new workers. We compete with McDonalds, Wendys and the discount stores, said Jennifer Witten, owner of Imani Home Health Co. in Cleveland. You cant afford to raise your salaries, yet you want to hire the best people. Home care agencies say trying to fill jobs will become even more difficult in a few years if the economy improves and job options increase. The real staffing challenge is 10 years away, said David Tramontana, president of Home Care by Black Stone in Cincinnati. If we cant pay them more than they get at McDonalds, were in big trouble. The qualifications and training for home care aides varies. A high school diploma isnt usually a requirement, and some states call for only on-the-job training, while others insist on more formal instruction about basic nutrition and personal hygiene at community colleges or elder care programs. Home care agencies that are reimbursed by Medicare or Medicaid must hire aides who have passed a competency test or received state certification. Despite the relatively low pay, many aides say they like the flexible hours and find the work rewarding. Tate, a home care aide since 1999, doubts she could get by if it werent for her husband, a truck driver who also has health insurance. She could make more money at a nursing home or hospital but relishes the connections she makes in home care. I get attached to the people, said Tate, who made $8.50 an hour until she received a promotion and a $2 raise earlier this summer. How could you not if youre with them every day? Sometimes youre the only person they see. Retired hospital nurse and home health aide Judith Mezey-Kirby, born a few years ahead of the baby boom, said she worries about who will take care of boomers in the coming years. Home health care workers need not only better pay, she said, but also better training on how to take care of basic needs. She had good and bad experiences with aides who help her with the laundry and chores that require heavy lifting around her home in Fairview Park, a Cleveland suburb. It needs attention bad, said Mezey-Kirby, 73. You just cant take people off the streets. Wittens company considered adding a 401(k) plan for its workers but decided it was too costly. Home aides she hires start at $8.50 per hour and can earn up to $10. Most work 30 to 40 hours a week, and all but a few have other part-time jobs, Witten said. Jareese Mitchell, a personal care attendant in Manchester, Conn., spends 30 hours a week with two quadriplegics, helping them eat, dress and bathe. He also goes to school and works three nights a week at a clothing store. Everybody has a job outside; you pretty much have to, said Mitchell, who until recently was receiving food stamps. He said he might look for different work if the pay doesnt increase. Thats not unusual. The turnover rate among home health aides is estimated to be anywhere from 30 percent to 50 percent, sometimes higher. The revolving door is especially tough on those who depend on home aides for help throughout the day. My mom gets nervous when she has brand-new people. Theres always a trust issue, said Beth Cramer, who lives with her 74-yearold mother in the Cleveland suburb of Willowick. An aide comes to the house to help her mother with dressing and cooking while Cramer is at work. Theyre doing the most intimate of intimate things, she said. Imagine a stranger walking into your house and giving you a bath. Gail Williams, a personal assistant in Tampa, Fla., said many people have no one else. You just cant quit the job because these people need you, she said. Chris Hradisky, who relies on a personal assistant to help him with meals and clean his apartment in Waukegan, Ill., said he wouldnt be on his own without help. His aides, he said, are like family. You build a bond with them.The latest installment in Aging America, the joint AP-APME project examining the aging of the baby boomers and its impact on society.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, AUGUST6, 2012 A11 000C8F8 or Bifocals $ 12 9 Eyecare Express 20/20 Same Day Service Even Bifocals & Safety Glasses *CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

A beekeeper said he had to be called in to gather up a swarm of thousands of bees that delayed a Delta Air Lines flight from Pittsburgh International Airport to New York. Master beekeeper Stephen Repasky told KDKA-TV he was called out Wednesday when the bees gathered on the wing of the plan as crews were getting ready to fuel the plane. Repasky said such swarms form when colonies become too large and the queen leaves half of her bees behind to find a new home. Some swarms can contain 25,000 to 30,000 bees. Repasky said its likely theres a wild honeybee colony at the airport somewhere. The beekeeper was called to remove the insects because theyre a protected species that cannot legally be killed. Hero Chihuahua NEWNAN, Ga. A Chihuahua is being hailed as a hero after authorities said it sniffed out two girls who were lost in a Georgia forest. The girls, ages 5 and 8, disappeared July 30 for a couple of hours when they were walking on trails near their neighborhood about 30 miles southwest of Atlanta. As police and firefighters began to search for the girls, neighbor Carvin Young grabbed his 3-year-old Chihuahua and joined the search. Young told CBS Atlanta the dog, Bell, picked up the girls scent and began running until she reached them. Rebecca Parga, the girls mother, said her children play with Bell almost every day, and the dog is very familiar with them. The girls, Carlie and Lacey, were scared when they were found, but were not hurt. Dog thiefCORAOPOLIS, Pa. A Pittsburgh man allegedly broke into a womans apartment while drunk and stole a potato peeler, a kitchen knife and a small dog. Online court records dont list an attorney for 24-year-old Garrett Stauber, who was arrested shortly after the burglary was reported about 3 a.m. Aug. 1 in Moon Township. Township police say a woman called 911 to report that Stauber kicked in her door, took the utensils out of her dishwasher and grabbed her dog, then left. A neighbor heard what was going on and briefly scuffled with Stauber, who was found sitting shirtless on a couch in his friends apartment in the same building where he had been staying recently.Drunken snoozerPUTNAM TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities said a Michigan couple got an unexpected visit from a drunken 27-year-old neighbor who wandered into their cottage and climbed into bed with them. The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reported the man showed up in the Putnam Township bedroom around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. Police said the couple left and called 911, and officers found the man deeply asleep with his shorts partly down. According to police, the intruder said, This isnt my house, upon waking. He explained he went out drinking nearby after putting his 2and 4-year-old children to sleep at his own home a few doors down. The children were found sound asleep and placed with neighbors. Their father was booked on suspicion of illegal entry and released on bond.

Associated PressWASHINGTON People retiring today are part of the first generation of workers who have paid more in Social Security taxes during their careers than they will receive in benefits after they retire. Its a historic shift that will only get worse for future retirees, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. Previous generations got a much better bargain, mainly because payroll taxes were very low when Social Security was enacted in the 1930s and remained so for decades. For the early generations, it was an incredibly good deal, said Andrew Biggs, a former deputy Social Security commissioner who is now a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. The government gave you free money, and getting free money is popular. If you retired in 1960, you could expect to get back seven times more in benefits than you paid in Social Security taxes, and more if you were a low-income worker, as long you made it to age 78 for men and 81 for women. As recently as 1985, workers at every income level could retire and expect to get more in benefits than they paid in Social Security taxes, though they didnt do quite as well as their parents and grandparents. Not anymore. A married couple retiring last year after both spouses earned average lifetime wages paid about $598,000 in Social Security taxes during their careers. They can expect to collect about $556,000 in benefits, if the man lives to 82 and the woman lives to 85, according to a 2011 study by the Urban Institute, a Washington think tank. Social Security benefits are progressive, so most low-income workers retiring today still will get slightly more in benefits than they paid in taxes. Most highincome workers started getting less in benefits than they paid in taxes in the 1990s, according to data from the Social Security Administration. The shift among middleincome workers is happening just as millions of baby boomers are reaching retirement, leaving relatively fewer workers behind to pay into the system. Its coming at a critical time for Social Security, the federal governments largest program. The trustees who oversee Social Security say its funds, which have been built up over the past 30 years with surplus payroll taxes, will run dry in 2033 unless Congress acts. At that point, payroll taxes would provide enough revenue each year to pay about 75 percent of benefits. To cover the shortfall, future retirees probably will have to pay higher taxes while they are working, accept lower benefits after they retire, or some combination of both. Future generations are going to do worse because either they are going to get fewer benefits or they are going to pay higher taxes, said Eugene Steuerle, a former Treasury official who has studied the issue as a fellow at the Urban Institute. How can you get a better return on your Social Security taxes? Live longer. Benefit estimates are based on life expectancy. For those turning 65 this year, Social Security expects women to live 20 more years and men to live 17.8 more. But returns alone dont fully explain the value of Social Security, which has features that arent available in typical private-sector retirement plans, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP Spouses can get benefits even if they never earned wages. Children can get benefits if they have a working parent who dies. People who are too disabled to work can get benefits for life. You are buying this lifetime inflation-protected benefit that you can never run out of and that will always be there for you, Certner said. It protects your spouse, protects your family and protects you from disability. Certner noted that private pensions, retirement savings and home values took a big hit when the economy collapsed, putting a dent in the retirement plans of many Americans. Social Security is financed by a 12.4 percent tax on wages. Workers pay half and their employers pay the other half. Self-employed workers pay the full 12.4 percent. The tax is applied to the first $110,100 of a workers wages, a level that increases each year with inflation. For 2011 and 2012, the tax rate for employees was reduced to 4.2 percent, but is scheduled to return to 6.2 percent in January. The payroll tax rate was only 2 percent in 1937, the first year Social Security taxes were levied. It did not surpass 6 percent until 1962. Even with low tax rates, Social Security could afford to pay benefits in the early years because there were more workers paying the tax for each person receiving benefits than there are today. In 1960, there were 4.9 workers paying Social Security taxes for each person getting benefits. Today, there are about 2.8 workers for each beneficiary, a ratio that will drop to 1.9 workers by 2035, according to projections by the Congressional Budget Office. About 56 million people now collect Social Security benefits, and that number is projected to grow to 91 million in 2035. Monthly benefits average $1,235 for retired workers and $1,111 for disabled workers. Social Security provides most older Americans a majority of their income. About onequarter of married couples and just under half of single retirees rely on Social Security for 90 percent or more of their income, according to the Social Security Administration. Social Security is whats carrying me, said Neta Homier, a 79-year-old retired hospital worker from Toledo, Ohio. Theres no way I would have made it without it. The kids, theyre on their own, now, and Im not going to be a burden for them. Thats what it would have been if I hadnt had Social Security. Homier said she started receiving Social Security when she was 63 and now gets about $800 a month, after her Medicare premiums are deducted. At 52, Anthony Riley of Columbus, Ohio, has a different perspective. Riley said he has a private retirement account because he worries Social Security wont provide adequate benefits throughout his retirement. I use to think that it was worth paying for your Social Security, but now I dont think so, Riley said. At 22, Mackenzie Millan of Los Angeles has even greater doubts. The money that I put aside now, its not like that money is going to be waiting for me. That money is going toward someone else, she said. If I wanted Social Security 50 years from now, when I wanted to retire, I would have to hope that someone else is still working and putting money aside in their paychecks to pay for my Social Security at that point.A12MONDAY, AUGUST6, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000C3V0 IS YOUR HOME KEEPING YOU Gary Headley, Owner Mechanical Engineer, Purdue University Mechanical Contractor AIR CONDITIONING An Air Conditioner for Every Budget 21,000 Service Calls with 97% Satisfaction Rating WE REPAIR ALL BRANDS Senior & Veterans Discounts Lic: CMC039568 352-726-2202 4811 S.

Time for TeddiIve known Teddi Rusnak for many years and I know she will fight for the people of this community. I fought with Teddi leading the way, to stop the current commissioners from privatizing our water and sewer. We won and Im sure we saved lots of money on water rates and knowing our water is safe to drink. Let Teddi put a fresh look in this town and with fresh ideas to promote jobs and new business to our area. Give Teddi a chance. Vote for her!Kenneth Praeger Citrus Springs Meek principledLike so many Citrus residents, I am a retiree and I am so pleased to see Commissioner Joe Meek hold to the same principles that I have held so dear all my life, regardless of conflicting circumstances. Above all else, Joe is always honest, which is a quality sometimes lacking in our elected officials. He is a locally grown family man who wants his children to grow up with pride in the community and where there is opportunity to succeed. He has told his constituents what he will do, and then he has followed through. He has set an extensive program and blistering pace to create the jobs necessary for a vibrant economic engine in Citrus County. The Economic Development Council was created in large part due to Joes vision and his personal participation in creating an environment where Citrus County is open for business. He has led this county in its effort to be business friendly within the confines of reducing the budget through improved efficiency, to ensure there is no negative impact on us old guys and especially retired veterans. So economic development, job growth, done in a prudent, rational manner has been the hallmark of Joes first term in office. In these economic times, there is still plenty to do to return Citrus County to the growth it had before the economic downturn and Joe Meek had demonstrated that he will continue to lead this resurgence. As a former Army officer I say Follow me, vote for Joe Meek.Ron Lundberg Beverly HillsKlemm the futurePlease consider voting for Michelle Klemm for state committeewoman representingCitrus County Republican Executive Committee. You probably will not hear about this race, since it is not a politically paying job even though it will appear on the ballot. After Michelle was elected REC chairwoman, it was obvious that she was not well studied in Roberts Rules of Order. Egad! An unforgivable faux pas! This didnt faze Michelle, and she persevered by employing the same determination she resorts to when confronted with similar difficulties she studied until she got it right. Besides being determined, Michelle is dedicated, responsible, dependable, authentic, enthusiastic and trustworthy. She is also patient, courteous and friendly, even with those that are sometimes undeserving. The Republican Party needs younger participants that can put forth new perspectives. The party needs an infusion of younger members that, hopefully, will bring in a new dawn of reasoning and understanding, passion and enthusiasm, to the old party. Hopefully, this will also bring more devotion and respect for the U.S. Constitution above all else something akin to the enthusiasm and loyalty emanating from coast-to-coast by Dr. Ron Paul supporters. I was able to tap into all facets of managerial training courses during my nearly four decades of working for corporate America. I knew how best to throw down a challenge, how to find common ground, and all the other prescribed managerial problem-solving techniques peddled, ad nauseam. Unfortunately, sometimes even the best techniques do not work, especially when you are dealing with certain types of personalities, including many politicians that are simply wrapped up tighter than mummies. This stifles any semblance of effective and productive communication from the start since they know best, and thats that. Some situations can be difficult enough without you having to stroke peoples multiple layers of selfabsorption, pompousness and misplaced egotism in order to get your point across and be taken seriously. I mention this because Michelle Klemm knows the political arena; she can roll with the punches, and will not be dissuaded from accomplishing her objectives. Please vote Michelle Klemm for REC state committeewoman.Edna Mattos HernandoHemrick for sheriffIn answer to the question, Have you had enough? my answer to Hank is, Oh my, yes I have. After speaking to Mr. Hemrick on numerous occasions about his signs, I truly believe he will make the positive necessary changes in the sheriffs department. I too believe Hank Hemrick is a true fiscal conservative who will provide a more responsible and people-friendly sheriffs office, especially in reference to our tax-dollar spendings. Budgeting in the area of a zero-based budget to the reduction of the costly air force and a return to a mostly volunteer fire department, Hank Hemrick will be a guardian of our pocketbooks. Being a former law enforcement ranking officer, I have first-hand experience with the ins and outs of law enforcement budgeting. I happened to meet Hank Hemrick at the local flea market where he was greeting and sharing ideas and well-thought-out plans for his run for the sheriff of our county. I could tell in the first five minutes that Hank was a quality guy and he believed in his ideas and it wasnt just words for me to vote for another politician. Hank wanted to hear what my concerns were as a citizen. I was impressed by his responses and vast knowledge in law enforcement budgeting as well as instincts and knowledge to curb overspending and provide transparency, an area in which a public official should have. With Hanks obvious supervisory experience this would complete the criteria for our new sheriff. I have retired here, this is a great place, and I believe that Hank Hemrick will provide a more stable and fiscally sound sheriffs office for me and my family. Please support Hank Hemrick for sheriff of our Citrus County.Ricky Ward InvernessChoose RusnakThe choice for county commissioner in District 5 is an easy one for anyone interested in good county government unfettered by special interests. In fact, the only choice is Teddi Rusnak. I have known Teddi for many years and have watched her make the right choice time after time and speak for the best interests of the vast majority of us. I watched Teddi battle county government when the operation of the county water systems was about to be handed over to private multi-national interests. When Teddi realized what was happening she rallied the troops, filled the county commission chambers with outraged people and soon changed the mind-set of the commission and they voted down the proposal. There are some things that should be kept in the hands of local government, and the most important one is our water supply. When it is placed in the hands of private industry, the pressure on the rate structure is always upward (profit factor); when it is in the government sector the pressure is always downward (tax control). This is just one of many instances I could cite where Teddi has acted successfully in our best interests. Please join with me in voting for Theodora Teddi Rusnak for Citrus County commissioner, District 5.Jim Bitter HomosassaVote PolisenoI have known Charles Poliseno for approximately 25 years. During that time, I have seen him hold many valuable positions in Citrus County. He served his community as a member of the Inverness Volunteer Fire Department, to the point of risking his life to help rescue elderly residents from a nursing home while fire was overhead. As a paramedic with Citrus County EMS, Charles excelled in his patient care. I know of many people who received his emergency care and are still here today because of his expertise. When Charles began his career as the Public Safety director, he knew there would be many challenges. He oversaw the contract with Corrections Corporation of America and reduced the burden of cost to the taxpayers of Citrus County. With the demise of a private ambulance company, Charles helped establish Nature Coast EMS. Nature Coast EMS is recognized as an excellent pre-hospital medical provider in the state of Florida. By creating Nature Coast EMS, Charles helped reduce the cost of dollars to the taxpayers of Citrus County. I worked for Charles while employed at the Citrus County Fire Academy. During that time, I know that there were very hard decisions to make for staffing the fire service. Charles made those decisions with the understanding that he would not be popular, but he knew that his decision would benefit the residents of Citrus County. Knowing Charles personally, I can tell you that he is an upstanding citizen. He takes responsibility for his actions. He is very honest and has not been arrested or spent time in jail other than as a contract administrator. In order for you to have educated representation with a knowledge base in public administration, you need to elect Charles Poliseno as county commissioner, District 5.John C. Longacre Jr. LecantoVision, experienceThe race for Public Defender for the Fifth Circuit contest has two longstanding lawyers, both registered as Republicans. The fact that both are of the same political party registration and they have no political party opposition means that the victor in this contest will be determined by the Aug. 14, 2012, election outcome. After reading the Chronicleeditorial on Aug. 1, I realized the importance of sharing with the readership the attributes of Bo Samaryga and the reasons why it is my belief that he should be the public defender for our circuit. Readers and those who have attended the multiple forums, meet-and-greets, etc., have heard both men share their personal backgrounds and legal experiences. Bo Samaryga is known across the circuit amongst his peers, judiciary, legislators, citizens, and equally important, his clients, to be without question a man of honor and integrity, who will bring accountability to the office of public defender. Bo Samarygas integrity as a lawyer can be validated by the fact that his Florida Bar record is above reproach with no accounts of reprimands and or suspensions. Bo is a family man (husband and father of two), experienced leader in not only areas of legal profession but served in the U.S. Army, is a lifetime member of the NRA, is a certified state mediator, businessman (law office and real estate broker), and actively involved in the community in which he lives. Bo Samaryga will be a public defender who will preserve the Constitution and statutory rights of all citizens, regardless of their ability to pay and will do so in a prudent and fiscal conservative manner. Upon review, I am confident the voters of the Fifth Circuit will agree that Bo Samargya needs to be our public defender.

Page A14MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 Rumors are everywhere that former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist is planning a move to the Democratic Party. And, boy, are some people livid. Republicans are calling him two-faced and launching unflattering websites ridiculing their former standardbearer. Some Democrats are equally put off about their adversary switching sides. I say, Charlie, welcome to the party! First, a history lesson. The idea of people changing political affiliations is nothing new to Florida. In the decades after the 1960s, loads of Dixie Democrats left the party for the GOP angered over President Johnsons support of the Civil Rights Act. (Pretty sure Lincoln would have found that ironic). Florida Gov. Claude Kirk ran for statewide office repeatedly as both a Democrat and Republican. But over the past 20 years, Democrats lost their overwhelming electoral dominance of voter registration, for a variety of reasons, to the point where Florida is now truly a purple state. Democrats Obama, Clinton and (I would argue) Gore all won the state, as did Republicans Bush, Scott and Crist. The truth is, its only natural, given the extreme hard right turn the Republican Party has taken, that so many folks, like Crist, feel unwelcomed or at sea. During this last primary season, Americans were aghast watching Republican debate audiences boo a gay U.S. soldier who asked a question about Dont Ask, Dont Tell. Or the chants of let em die when Republican presidential contenders were asked whether we should provide lifesaving care to an uninsured American. Yes, those voices were probably outliers, but not one of the eight people who held themselves out as presidential timber not one, including their eventual nominee had the courage to tell the audience thats not who we are. This is the same party that demands its members take oaths to never raise a tax, and purifies itself of true leaders like U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar who commit the sin of working with the opposing party to address our nations security challenges. Its no wonder that a Republican stalwart like Jeb Bush would opine that neither his father nor even Ronald Reagan would have been nominated by todays Republican Party. That is why I firmly believe the Democratic Party should embrace Republicans and independent voters who are no longer comfortable with the GOPs rigid and extreme dogma. It doesnt sacrifice our principles to invite newcomers and accept political refugees whose worldview is more aligned with ours. As the Republican Party becomes increasingly obedient to the farright wing, this isnt just smart politics; its the right thing to do. One way to really make that happen is for the Democratic Party to invite independent voters to participate in our 2014 primary for governor. These voters make up 20 percent of the electorate, and up to now have only been bystanders in the process of selecting nominees for our states highest office. By including them in the primary process, our candidates will have to reach out to them. They may like what they hear and, more importantly, our candidates may learn something if they listen. Independents, and swing voters in general, tend to determine statewide elections. In 2004 they voted for Bush; in 2008 they went for Obama. And as the Republican Party becomes increasingly divorced from the mainstream, the numbers of independent voters will only grow. Democrats have a right to include independent voters in their primary, and could with a simple internal rule change by the Florida Democratic Party. No less an authority than the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that political parties have a right of association that allows them to include unaffiliated voters in their nomination process. This is a real opportunity that should not be passed up. Too many Americans rightfully believe the electoral process is in disrepair. Trying to reverse the trend of hyper-partisanship is a righteous step that should be taken. So, to Charlie or any other voter who feels the need to make a move, our tent is pretty big and can get somewhat raucous at times, because we definitely dont walk in lockstep. But if you want a Florida whose best days are ahead, then come on in and make yourself at home.Dan Gelber was a state senator and former House Democratic leader from Miami.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................editorMike Arnold ..........................................HR directorSandra Frederick ............................managing editorCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest member Nelson, Weldon the best choices in Senate race The Democratic and Republican Party primary races for Floridas U.S. Senate seat each have a candidate who is the clear choice. In the Democratic race, incumbent Sen. Bill Nelsons stature as a public servant towers over his opponent. On the Republican ballot, former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon has demonstrated that hes best suited to represent the citizens of Florida. A native son of Florida, Nelson, 69, has a distinguished 40-year record of public service as a member of the Florida Legislature, Florida Cabinet, U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Throughout his public service, he has championed the environment, education and consumers. Although a loyalist who sides with his party on most issues, he has on occasion bucked his partys leadership. Most recently, he favors extending the Bush-era tax cuts for anyone earning less than $1 million instead of the $250,000 favored by his partys leadership. In this age of partisan politics, Nelson has called for greater bipartisanship and civility between the political parties and factions. In this regard, he has set the example by forging a mutually respectful and collegial relationship with Floridas Republican freshman senator, Marco Rubio. Nelsons challenger, Glenn Burkett, 62, can best be described as a political lightweight who is not a viable candidate. A Naples resident, Burkett is a natural health and wellness educator. A perennial candidate, Burkett ran unsuccessfully in the Democratic primary for governor in 2006 and the U.S. Senate primary in 2010, garnering 3.8 percent and 6.5 percent of the vote, respectively. The Republican primary race has been narrowed to two viable candidates: U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV and former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon. Mack, 44, is the presumptive front-runner given that his father, Connie Mack III, was a popular senator until retiring in 2001 and his great-grandfather was the legendary baseball manager and Hall of Famer Connie Mack. Also, as a sitting congressman, he has built a political network that affords him the inside track. The race, however, has revealed several shortcomings that could derail Macks U.S. Senate seat bid. Missing more than twice as many votes in the House as the average member since taking office, his work habits are questionable. His wavering policy positions appear to be guided more by opportunism than principle. Further, his arrogant refusal to meet with editorial boards, debate his GOP rivals and participate in candidate forums makes his temperament for public service suspect. Weldon, 58, a physician, was elected to the U.S. House in 1994 and served until 2008, when he decided not to seek re-election in favor of returning to his medical practice. During his 14-year tenure, he proved to be a thoughtful and collegial legislator who placed principle above partisanship, displaying a willingness to work across party lines. A social and fiscal conservative, Weldon is a serious candidate genuinely concerned about the pressing challenges facing our nation. Extremely well informed, he is a realist who has the political courage to make the tough calls that best serve our countrys long-term interests.

ENDORSEMENTS Rats or cats?This is to the man in Sugarmill Woods whos catching the cats and doing away with them: Well, in Sugarmill Woods, a while back several years, it seems like someone caught all the cats and Sugarmill Woods was free of them. Then they were burdened with rats or mice like crazy. Then they wished they had the cats back. So youve got to pick you want rats or cats? Dan GelberFLORIDA VOICES Endorsement REBUTTAL I would like to begin by thanking the ChronicleEditorial Board for inviting me to come and present my background, experience and opinions as they relate to my race for superintendent of schools. Although I disagree with the Chroniclesendorsement, I do respect the freedom of speech we all have been granted. Each candidate offers their own unique vision for the future of the office they are seeking and every citizen of our county is entitled to their own opinion of each candidate. With that being said, I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to further elaborate on my professional expertise and my personal commitment to the future excellence of our school district. The most important question to ask yourself now is, Am I satisfied with the current superintendents role as the leader of our school district? If the answer to that question is yes, then read no further, as it will not matter which of the Republican candidates makes it through the primary. However, if your answer is no, then please ask yourself, Which candidate offers a better chance of beating the incumbent in November? I believe that my educational background, leadership experience and personal determination make me the only candidate to offer a chance for change in the position of superintendent. I am a firm, fair and consistent leader who will never be influenced by political pressures or ever put my own personal agenda ahead of the best interests of our district. I do not owe favors to anyone and my loyalty will always belong to the voters of this county. I am not a dissatisfied county employee with a vengeful heart. I am a concerned citizen who has been asked over and over again to step into this election and offer the voters a viable candidate for superintendent. I believe that the support and instructional personnel are the essential people who have earned the A district we so proudly boast about. However, it is those same people who have become disconnected to the administration and district office staff. I believe the priority of the superintendent should be to facilitate an effective communication system between the district office and the school-level employees so that each member of the team feels valued and supported. The biggest concern I hear about involves unfair hiring and promoting practices. Each job should be given to the best qualified applicant, and favoritism should be avoided. Our district should strive to be the best, therefore, we should treat our staff the best. After all, it is through their endless dedication, persistence and passion for teaching that makes all of our educational accomplishments possible. I believe it is necessary to clarify the Chroniclesreasoning for endorsing Mrs. Balfour. Educational experience gives her the edge, in their opinion. However, what they fail to consider is that Mrs. Balfours nine-month administrative experience either ended voluntarily or involuntarily. Either way, I believe it is a fair assumption that she did not make an adequate administrator and her inability to secure any other leadership position within the Citrus County public school system in the past seven years reaffirms that. My experience during the last five years as an educator and 30 years as a coach has given me the necessary skills and leadership experience to be promoted from teacher to transition coordinator/assistant principal and finally to principal. Due to the uniqueness of Cypress Creek, I am trained and experienced in all aspects of school operations. My job incorporates teaching, counseling, testing, training, professional development, transitioning youth back into a public school, college or workplace, hiring and evaluations of staff and all aspects of financial management. The biggest misconception about Cypress Creek is that it is just a school within a prison. The truth is, our school is yearround and adheres to all county requirements as well as all state requirements, Department of Juvenile Justice requirements and all G4S requirements. While my opponent campaigns and talks about future leadership, it is my daily obligation. This experience has reinforced the necessity of a strong leader who can balance the demanding tasks handed down from multiple agencies. My leadership style encourages a supportive team that produces successful students and satisfied parents while at the same time maintains a safe and secure environment for everyone at the facility, as well as the citizens of our county. In closing, the position of school superintendent should not be used for personal gain, to boost an ego or show off accomplishments. This job demands a successful leader with experience in all aspects of education, business, and community relations. At the end of the day, what this county needs is a superintendent who acknowledges that our children, and the personnel who have direct contact with them, come first. Due to the time spent in school, it is essential that the voters elect a superintendent who will guarantee that the guardians of our children are given all that they need to be enthusiastic teachers and inspiring role models. The Republican Party offers only one candidate who can do this, Rob Cummins. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I would appreciate your support and vote.Robert J. Rob Cummins Republican candidate for superintendent of schools Cummins: Im best equipped to lead OPINIONS INVITED

Eagle Scouts return medals in protestNEW YORK For the physician in Illinois, the attorney in Kentucky, the arts editor in Oregon, their Eagle Scout medals were treasured reminders of youthful achievement. Yet each is parting with his medal out of dismay over the Boy Scouts recently reaffirmed policy of excluding gays. I can no longer maintain any connection to an organization which actively promotes such a bigoted and misguided policy, Dr. Robert Wise of Chicago wrote to Scout headquarters in Texas. To that end, I am interested in removing all evidence that I was ever a Scout. Wise, 59, is among several former Eagle Scouts who have taken such steps following the July 17 announcement that the Boy Scouts of America, after a confidential two-year review, were sticking with the long-standing policy of excludingopenly gay youth and adults as members and leaders. Deron Smith, the Boy Scouts national spokesman, said there was no official count at his office of how many medals had been returned. Runway ruins Associated PressPictured July 10 are ruins which scholars think may be from the legendary Arab Christian city of Hira, just a few hundred yards from the runway of the airport in the holy Shiite Muslim city of Najaf, about 100 miles south of Baghdad, Iraq. Border guards killed; Islamists suspectedEL-ARISH, Egypt Masked gunmen killed 16 Egyptian soldiers Sunday at a checkpoint along the border with Gaza and Israel, the first such attack on troops and then the attackers drove off, crashing into Israel, officials said. Egypt blamed Islamist militants from Gaza and Egypts troubled Sinai Peninsula. President Mohammed Morsi said the attackers will pay dearly. The Israeli military said the attack was part of a plot to abduct an Israeli soldier, and two vehicles commandeered by the attackers crashed into Israel, where one blew up. The attack took place around sunset in the Egyptian border town of Rafah. Egyptian state TV said the attack on the checkpoint was carried out by Islamist militants. The report said 16 troops were killed in the attack coordinated between Palestinians who entered Egypt from Gaza and Egyptians in Sinai. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Page A16MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressBEIRUT Syrian forces threatened Sunday to mount a decisive battle for Aleppo even as rebels clawed toward the citys ancient center under intense bombardment and strafing from warplanes. In the capital Damascus, militiamen appeared to step up guerrilla-like forays in central districts once firmly in the regimes hands. The twin fronts reflected the rising stakes for both sides and a possible significant evolution in rebel strategies. Opposition forces appear to be shifting toward more hit-and-run strikes in Damascus and elsewhere to tie up Bashar Assads forces and blur the lines between rebel and government-held territory. The biggest prize of the ambush brigades so far 48 abducted Iranians branded as spies by rebels was put on display in a video that carried a warning that all Iranians in Syria would be captured or killed because of Tehrans strong backing for Assad. Iran said those captured when their bus was commandeered on Saturday were pilgrims visiting an important Shiite shrine on the outskirts of Damascus. The abductions threaten to suck Iran deeper into Syrias civil war and the wider political brinksmanship around the region. Iran claims it has no fighting forces aiding Assad, but it has sharply amplified its criticism of countries supporting the rebels such as neighboring Turkey and Gulf states led by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. In further signs of the growing proxy nature of Syrias conflict, Iran was forced to reach out to Turkey and Qatar with appeals to help return the captives. The daylight hijacking on the main airport road in Damascus also raises questions about the regimes ability to control key parts of the capital and protect the symbols of Assads power such as ministries and government offices. The pro-government Al Watannewspaper said the Syrian army is bracing itself for a decisive battle to clear Aleppo, Syrias largest city, from rebels. It gave no possible timetable. Government gunners pounded rebel-held areas to keep militiamen from expanding their hold on the city center, dominated by a medieval castle whose loss would be a deep symbolic blow for Assad. Local activist Mohammad Saeed said government warplanes joined in the attack by strafing rebel positions. Saeed and the Britishbased Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported heavy shelling and clashes mainly in districts flanking Aleppos historic center: Salaheddine to the southwest and al-Sukkari and Hananou to the northeast. Syrian forces vow decisive showdown for Aleppo Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. NASAs most high-tech Mars rover on Sunday zeroed in on the red planet where it will attempt a tricky celestial gymnastics routine during a seven minutes of terror plummet through the atmosphere. The Curiosity rover was poised to hit the top of the Martian atmosphere at 13,000 mph. If all goes according to script, it will be slowly lowered by cables inside a massive crater in the final few seconds. NASA was ready for the Super Bowl of planetary exploration, said Doug McCuistion, head of the Mars exploration program at NASA headquarters. We score and win or we dont score and we dont win, said McCuistion. If all goes well, mission control at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory should hear a signal at 10:31 p.m. Pacific. The space agency warned confirmation could take longer if an orbiting spacecraft thats supposed to listen for Curiosity during the descent is not in the right place. Curiositys trajectory was so accurate engineers decided to wave off a last chance to tweak its position before atmosphere entry. Not ones to tempt fate, flight controllers planned to break out the good luck peanuts before Curiosity takes the plunge as part of tradition. Curiosity was launched to study whether the Martian environment ever had conditions suitable for microbial life. The voyage to Mars took more than eight months and spanned 352 million miles. The trickiest part of the journey? The landing. Because Curiosity weighs nearly a ton, engineers drummed up a new and more controlled way to set the rover down. Sundays attempt was especially intense because NASA is testing a new landing technique. The last Mars rovers, twins Spirit and Opportunity, were cocooned in air bags and bounced to a stop in 2004. The plans for Curiosity called for a series of braking tricks, similar to those used by the space shuttle, and a supersonic parachute to slow it down. Next: Ditch the heat shield used for the fiery descent. And in a new twist, engineers came up with a way to lower the rover by cable from a hovering rocket-powered backpack. At touchdown, the cords cut and the rocket stage crashes a distance away. As Curiosity approaches, NASA braces By the time this paper hits y our doorstep, the Curiosity rover will have landed or crashed. Check www.chronicle online.com to see how it fared. Suspect killed in shootout with police Associated PressOAK CREEK, Wis. An unidentified gunman killed six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee on Sunday in a rampage that left terrified congregants hiding in closets and others texting friends outside for help. The suspect was killed outside the temple in a shootout with police officers. Police called the attack an act of domestic terrorism, but did not provide any details about the gunman or suggest a possible motive. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards did not say whether he specifically targeted the Sikh community. During a chaotic few hours after the first shots were fired, police in tactical gear and carrying assault rifles surrounded the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin with armored vehicles and ambulances. Witnesses struggled with unrealized fears that several shooters were holding women and children hostage inside. One of the first officers to respond to frantic 911 calls seeking help was shot several times as he tended to a wounded victim, and was in critical condition along with two other victims Sunday night, authorities said. We never thought this could happen to our community, said Devendar Nagra, 48, of Mount Pleasant, whose sister escaped injury by hiding as the gunman fired in the temples kitchen. We never did anything wrong to anyone. Edwards said the FBI will lead the investigation because the shootings are being treated as domestic terrorism, or an attack that originated inside the U.S. He said authorities would not say any more about their investigation until Monday morning, including the names of those killed. But it appeared the investigation had moved beyond the temple, as police and FBI agents focused on a neighborhood in nearby Cudahy. Authorities would not comment on the activity, which included evacuating several homes. Jatin Der Mangat, 38, of Racine, said his uncle Satwant Singh Kaleka, the temples president, was one of those shot, but he didnt know the extent of Kalekas injuries. When he later learned people had died, Mangat said it was like the heart just sat down. Edwards said the gunman ambushed one of the first officers to arrive at the temple as the officer tended to a victim outside. A second officer then exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was fatally shot. Tactical units went through the temple and found four people dead inside and two outside, in addition to the shooter. The three wounded were being treated at an area trauma center. Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt, who assisted the investigation, said the police officer had surgery and is expected to survive. Sikhism is a monotheistic faith founded more than 500 years ago in South Asia. It has roughly 27 million followers worldwide. Observant Sikhs do not cut their hair; male followers often cover their heads with turbans which are considered sacred and refrain from shaving their beards. There are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the U.S., according to estimates. The majority worldwide live in India. The Sikh Temple of Wisconsin started in 1997 with about 25 families. Construction on the current temple in Oak Creek began in 2006, according to the temples website.

Associated PressAKRON, Ohio Keegan Bradley only wanted a chance to get into a playoff Sunday at Firestone. All it took was a clutch par, along with a stunning collapse by Jim Furyk, for Bradley to win the Bridgestone Invitational and wrap up a spot on the Ryder Cup team. Bradley closed with a 6under 64, and the final stroke was the most important a 15-foot putt to save par from a plugged lie in the bunker. Furyk, who led for 71 holes and looked solid throughout the final round, chopped up the 18th hole for a double bogey to throw away a chance at his first win since the 2010 Tour Championship. He missed the green from the fairway. His chip with one foot in the sand barely cleared the bunker and stayed in the thick collar. He hit a weak chip to 5 feet, and his bogey putt never had a chance. Furyk dropped his putter when the ball left his blade. He went from what appeared to be a certain win to a 69 and a tie for second with Steve Stricker, who made four birdies on his last five holes for a 64. Ive got no one to blame but myself, Furyk said. Theres no way I should have made more than 5. Bradley won for the first time since last year in PGA Championship, and now goes to Kiawah Island to defend his title with a lot more confidence. I still cant believe it, he said. Bradley was four shots behind going into the final round, and was six shots back when Furyk opened with three straight birdies. Bradley kept pecking away at the lead, holing a 25-foot birdie putt on the seventh, scrambling for par on the 12th, and starting the back nine with a pair of birdies. Triumph SPORTS BRIEFSFans struck by lightning after raceLONG POND, Pa. Three fans attending the NASCAR race at Pocono Raceway were struck by lightning Sunday in the parking lot behind the grandstand. Pocono spokesman Bob Pleban said two fans were taken to a hospital, and there was no immediate word on their condition. The third fan was examined and released. The race was called because of rain with 98 of the 160 scheduled laps completed. The track posted warnings on its Twitter page near the end of the race encouraging fans to seek shelter as severe lightning and heavy winds are in our area.Eagles coachs son found deadBETHLEHEM, Pa. Garrett Reid, the oldest son of Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead Sunday morning in his room at the clubs training camp at Lehigh University. He was 29. The police chief at Lehigh, Edward Shupp, said a 911 call was made at 7:20 a.m., and that Garrett Reid was dead when a policeman arrived at the campus dormitory. A cause of death has not been determined. There were no suspicious activities, Shupp said. The 29-year-old Reid struggled with drug abuse for years and was imprisoned for a 2007 highspeed car crash in which another driver was injured. Police found heroin, which Reid admitted to using, and more than 200 pills in his car. When he surrendered to begin serving his sentence in that case, prison guards found Reid had tried to smuggle prescription pills into jail. Reid seemed to have rebounded from his problems in recent times and was assisting the Eagles strength coaches at camp in an unofficial capacity, a notuncommon sort of role for NFL coaches sons. Many of the coaches and staff stay in the Lehigh dorms. In the midst of his legal troubles in his early 20s, Reid said he got a thrill out of being a drug dealer in a lower-income neighborhood just a few miles from his parents suburban Villanova mansion. I liked being the rich kid in that area and having my own high-status life, Reid told a probation officer, according to court testimony in November 2007. I could go anywhere in the hood. They all knew who I was. I enjoyed it. I liked being a drug dealer. At his sentencing hearing, Reid told the judge: I dont want to die doing drugs. I dont want to be that kid who was the son of the head coach of the Eagles, who was spoiled and on drugs and ODd and just faded into oblivion. His younger brother, Britt, also had problems with drug use and was arrested on the same day as Garrett in 2007 for a roadrage encounter.From wire reports Andy Reid Olympics/ B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B4 Lottery numbers/B4 Entertainment/ B5 Classifieds/ B8 Yankees take on Mariners / B3 SPORTSSection BMONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gordon wins at Pocono Associated PressLONG POND, Pa.

PETERSBURG The Baltimore Orioles are having great success in onerun and extra-inning games. Taylor Teagarden broke out of a long slide with an RBI double in the 10th inning, Miguel Gonzalez threw seven scoreless innings, and the Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Sunday. Baltimore has won 10 consecutive one-run games dating to June 22 and 11 straight extra-inning contests. We have a great team ... we battle, Gonzalez said. Were not going to give up. Keep working hard, getting better, and things are going to work out for us. Teagarden has just three hits in 28 at-bats overall this season, including a gamewinning homer in the 13th inning on July 14 against Detroit. We were talking in the dugout that we had the right man in the right place, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Teagarden started the season on the disabled list with a strained back and was out until mid-July. Joel Peralta (1-4) walked Mark Reynolds with one out in the 10th and threw a called third strike past Omar Quintanilla. Teagarden, in a 1-for-25 slide, lined a two-out drive to leftcenter. Luis Ayala (3-3) got three outs in the ninth, and Jim Johnson finished for his 32nd save in 35 chances as both teams pitched threehitters. Our guys did a lot of things well to make a difference in a real close game, Showalter said. Well pitched on both sides. Tampa Bay All-Star David Price, bidding for his 15th win of the season, allowed just two hits in eight innings, struck out five and walked three. Miguel matched him, and threw a lot of good pitches, Showalter said. Gonzalez scattered two hits, struck out four and walked four. Gonzalez had a very good game, Price said. In his only other start against the Rays, Gonzalez allowed seven runs in 2 2-3 innings of a 10-1 loss on July 25. I stayed within myself, and stayed confident, Gonzalez said. Kept the ball down. I knew it was going to be a tough ballgame. Price got some help in the second from right fielder Matt Joyce, who made a nice over-the-shoulder running catch on Teagardens twoout drive with two on. It seemed like that one big hit would decide the game and it did, Joyce said.

Page B2MONDAY, AUGUST 6, 2012 Associated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica A tropical storm drenching parts of Jamaica couldnt dampen the countrys joy Sunday over another record-breaking Olympic victory by Usain Bolt. As Bolt re-established his claim to the title of worlds fastest man at the London Olympic Games, thousands of his countrymen cheered him on in an athletics building on the grounds of the national stadium, other public viewing areas and thousands of living rooms as offand-on gusty winds from the storm swept across the Caribbean country. A crowd of roughly 500 people on the grounds of the national stadium cheered wildly as Bolt crossed the finish line of the 100-meter dash in 9.63 seconds, many dancing and chanting Jamaica, Jamaica! One woman dropped to the ground, crying with relieved joy. A group of drummers pounded out a pulsing beat. Nine-year-old Lois Miller was among a group of dancing, flag-waving children. Jamaica No. 1! I knew it! I knew it, she said breathlessly. The intermittent rain and wind from Tropical Storm Ernesto forced the country to abandon plans for an outdoor viewing area at the Kingston stadium, but spectators managed to watch Bolts win in the semifinals less than a minute before a fierce squall swept in and crews had to disassemble the stage and video monitors. Bolt runs, the whole world shakes, said Patricia Ebanks, a vendor in a jerk chicken stall set up outside the stadium. At the Halfway Tree square in Kingston, several hundred people gathered at another outdoor viewing area that attracted hundreds Jamaicans, who stood in a slight drizzle to wave flags and bang kitchen pot lids and blow zuzuvelas. Many mimicked Bolts famous twofingered victory pose. Shot down the American dem, shot dem down big time. Lef dem fi dead, said triumphant fan Roy Collins, speaking in Jamaican patois. The Caribbean island is a hothouse for producing sprinters, and for weeks Jamaicans had enthusiastically debated whether Bolt or fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake would claim top honors. Its Bolt all the way for me. Hes going to take it all, Natalie Henningham, an accountant watching at the national stadium, said before the race. Nearby, George Russell shouted: No way! Blake! The rest of the field, including Americans Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin and another Jamaican, Asafa Powell, barely got a mention. Bolt all the way! The big man a go defend it! Blake have to settle for silver, Bernard Wolfe shouted to neighborhood buddies who were rooting for Blake in the Kingston community of Grants Pen. Blake, Bolts workout partner and blisteringly fast rival, had beaten the Jamaican sensation in the 100and 200-meter finals during the islands Olympic trials. Bolts subsequent withdrawal from a meet in Monaco only added to the intrigue and set up one of the most anticipated story lines of the 2012 Games.

Jamaica rejoices Associated PressJamaicas Usain Bolt, left, celebrates winning gold alongside silver medalist Yohan Blake of Jamaica on Sunday following the mens 100-meter final in London. OlympicBRIEFS South Africas Pistorius out of 400-meter finalOn Sunday night, Oscar Pistorius was last in his 400-meter semifinal a day after the double-amputee made his Olympic debut. The South African finished in 46.54 seconds, way slower than his career best of 45.07 and nearly 2 seconds slower than the winner of his heat, world champion Kirani James of Grenada. James immediately walked over to Pistorius after the race and asked to trade name bibs, to keep as a souvenir. The pair shook hands and hugged. Hes an inspiration for all of us. What he does ... takes a lot of courage, just a lot of confidence, James said. Hes very special to our sport. The champions included American Sanya RichardsRoss (womens 400 meters), Ethiopias Tiki Gelana (womens marathon), Kazakhstans Olga Rypakova (womens triple jump), Hungarys Krisztian Pars (mens hammer throw) and Kenyas Ezekiel Kemboi (mens 3,000meter steeplechase). This has just been the experience of a lifetime, said Richard-Ross, who cried after a disappointing third-place finish in Beijing. Ive dreamt about this moment for 20 years.Womens boxing comes to OlympicsThe Olympics year of the woman hit another milestone when womens boxing made its debut in the games Sunday. The tournament began with 12 entertaining bouts featuring uppercuts, haymakers and footwork that all measure up nicely to the mens amateur sport. Russias Elena Savelyeva won the first fight with a busy jab and strong combinations. U.S. lightweight Queen Underwood lost a close bout with Britains Natasha Jonas. The crowd roared for every fighter, clearly enjoying the tight competition and disciplined styles of the worlds top female boxers. McKayla Maroney was all set to add the vault title to her team gymnastics gold with the U.S. when she made a costly mistake. She appeared to land her second vault on the backs of her heels. Her feet slid out from under her, and she plopped on the mat, a look of shock crossing her face. I really didnt deserve to win a gold medal if I fall on my butt, Maroney said. I was still happy with a silver, but its still just sad. Sandra Izbasa of Romania won the gold, and Russias Maria Paseka took the bronze. Britains Louis Smith and Hungarys Krisztian Berki finished with identical 16.066 scores on the pommel horse, but Berki got the gold because his execution score of 9.166 was .10 points better. A tiebreaker also cost Smith in Beijing, when he dropped from second to bronze on the same event. Also, Zou Kai won his fifth career gold medal, defending his title on floor exercise. He already had one gold from Chinas victory in the mens team competition last week, and has three more from the Beijing Games.Serena Williams adds Olympic titleSerena Williams added another Olympic title when she teamed with sister Venus to beat Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 6-4, 6-4 in the womens doubles final. Serena also won the womens singles tournament and is tennis first double gold medalist at an Olympics since Venus won singles and doubles at the 2000 Sydney Games. The sisters also won the doubles gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Third-seeded Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova of Russia took the bronze by beating the top-seeded U.S. pair of Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond 4-6, 6-4, 6-1.American women match scoring recordDiana Taurasi had 22 points and the U.S. womens basketball team matched their Olympic scoring record in a 114-66 rout of China. The Americans 38th consecutive victory in Olympic play gave them the top seed in the group for the quarterfinals. The U.S. will meet Canada on Tuesday. Angel McCoughtry scored 16 as the women equaled the 114 points they scored against Spain in 1992, but fell well short of the womens Olympic mark of 128 points set by Brazil in 2004. France finished undefeated in pool play, beating Russia 6554, and will play the Czech Republic in the quarters. Turkey meets Russia and Australia faces China in the other matchups in the next round.Jennings, May-Treanor on track for goldKerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor beat Italy in straight sets in the quarterfinals to remain on track for a third consecutive Olympic gold medal. The Americans earned a berth in the semifinals against Beijing bronze medalists Xue Chen and Zhang Xi. The Chinese team has beaten the twotime defending Olympic champions the last three times theyve met. The No. 2 U.S. womens team of Jennifer Kessy and April Ross also advanced, beating the Czech Republic 25-23, 21-18. The Americans next play reigning world champions Juliana and Larissa of Brazil.From wire reports Medal countas of Aug. 5 LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS China 30 17 14 61 United States 28 14 18 60 Britain 16 11 10 37 South Korea 10 4 6 20 France 8 8 9 25 Italy 6 5 3 14 Kazakhstan 6 0 0 6 Germany 5 10 7 22 Russia 4 16 15 35 Hungary 4 1 3 8 North Korea 4 0 1 5 Netherlands 3 1 4 8 South Africa 3 1 0 4 New Zealand 3 0 4 7 Japan 2 12 13 27 Denmark 2 4 2 8 Romania 2 4 2 8 Belarus 2 2 3 7 Cuba 2 2 1 5 Jamaica 2 1 1 4 Poland 2 1 1 4 Ukraine 2 0 5 7 Ethiopia 2 0 1 3 Australia 1 12 7 20 Canada 1 3 6 10 Czech Rep. 1 3 1 5 Sweden 1 3 0 4 Kenya 1 2 2 5 Brazil 1 1 5 7 Slovenia 1 1 2 4 Croatia 1 1 0 2 Switzerland 1 1 0 2 Iran 1 0 1 2 Lithuania 1 0 1 2 Georgia 1 0 0 1 Venezuela 1 0 0 1 Mexico 0 3 2 5 Colombia 0 3 1 4 Spain 0 2 1 3 Slovakia 0 1 3 4 Azerbaijan 0 1 2 3 India 0 1 2 3 Armenia 0 1 1 2 Belgium 0 1 1 2 Indonesia 0 1 1 2 Mongolia 0 1 1 2 Norway 0 1 1 2 Serbia 0 1 1 2 Egypt 0 1 0 1 Guatemala 0 1 0 1 Malaysia 0 1 0 1 Taiwan 0 1 0 1 Thailand 0 1 0 1 Greece 0 0 2 2 Moldova 0 0 2 2 Argentina 0 0 1 1 Hong Kong 0 0 1 1 Qatar 0 0 1 1 Singapore 0 0 1 1 COUNTRY G S B TOT Tropical storm drenches island but not joy over win Associated PressSerena Williams, left, and Venus Williams of the United States smile together on the podium after receiving their gold medals in womens doubles Sunday at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London.

Associated PressNEW YORK Raul Ibanez homered and drove in three runs as Freddy Garcia and the New York Yankees wrapped up a long and losing homestand with a win, beating the Seattle Mariners 6-2 Sunday. Garcia got his 150th career victory while Ichiro Suzuki continued to be a one-hit wonder for the AL East leaders. The Yankees won for only the sixth time in 16 games. They went 4-5 against Boston, Baltimore and Seattle on their longest stay at Yankee Stadium so far this season. Garcia (5-5) hung around for five innings and preserved a one-run lead with his final pitch, retiring Kyle Seager with two runners on base.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 10, Indians 8, 10 inningsDETROIT Miguel Cabreras two-run homer capped a stunning five-run rally by Detroit with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Cleveland has lost nine straight, and this one slipped away in unthinkable fashion. With two outs and nobody on and the Indians up 8-5 Chris Perez (0-3) walked Alex Avila and pinch-hitter Andy Dirks. Austin Jackson doubled home a run, and Omar Infantes two-run single tied it.Blue Jays 6, Athletics 5OAKLAND, Calif. Edwin Encarnacion hit a home run and drove in two runs, Yunel Escobar also drove in two runs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Oakland Athletics 6-5 Sunday to salvage a series split. Anthony Gose and Kelly Johnson also drove in runs for the Blue Jays, who have won two straight after ending a six-game losing streak. Aaron Laffey (3-2) won for the third time in four decisions after allowing four runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out four.Red Sox 6, Twins 4BOSTON Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer, Franklin Morales turned in another solid substitute start and the Boston Red Sox averted a four-game sweep with a 6-4 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. Gonzalez finished with three RBIs. Carl Crawford added three singles, an RBI and a leaping catch for the Red Sox on his 31st birthday.White Sox 4, Angels 2CHICAGO Pinch-hitter A.J.

Gordon had been hit by a string of bad breaks this season and knew he needed wins over the final six races before the Chase cutoff to have any shot at running for a fifth championship during the 10-race playoffs. Gordon, who also won a rain-shortened race at Pocono in 2007, set the record for most career wins at Pocono with six. Kasey Kahne was second, followed by Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart. With the storms coming spotters told their drivers the heavy rain was coming Johnson was in prime position to follow last weeks win in Indy with another trip to Victory Lane. Something, though, went wrong with Johnsons car and he made contact with Kenseth. Johnson dropped back but suffered no real damage. Kenseth touched the wall and slid down the track. Hamlin had nowhere to go but into the side of the No. 17. Hamlin was taken to the infield care center and complained of abdominal discomfort but was released. Gordon, sixth in the restart necessitated by Kurt Buschs wreck, took the lead. victory over Roger Federer at the All England Club came less than a month after the Swiss great beat Murray on the same grass court. But Murray couldnt make it two gold medals Sunday. He and partner Laura Dobson lost to Belarus pair Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi 2-6, 6-3, 10-8 in the mixed doubles final later in the day. As soon as Murray finished off Federer in a rare dominant day against a player with seven Wimbledon titles the roars grew to a crescendo, the Union Jacks waving every which way. Brilliant! declared Julian Peltenburg, a Wimbledon local who brought his 8-year-old son, Monty. Its the first time. Its history here. Wimbledon and Olympic officials blocked walkways to the picnic area, holding fans back because the grounds were packed. Many of those same fans had no hesitation at ordering others around if their view of the match was impaired for a moment. Some grew testy when they couldnt join the party. Police ushered fans out afterward to keep order. For a typical championship Sunday at Wimbledon, fans camp out all night for grounds passes, looking to get seat on the hill. No chance this time. Those tickets sold out months ago. Its a good atmosphere, but its strange because usually Wimbledon is here, said Phil OConnor, 26, of London. Its a bit more raucous. Usually its quite busy and you get good support for Murray every year. Its good to see. It was also a day to be quick on ones feet. Those with tickets to the mens bronze-medal match rushed to find an open seat on the grass or at least to stand. Brits of all ages oohed and aahed with each point as it quickly became clear that after all of Murrays heartbreaking near misses, it was their guys day to shine, and right at home playing for his country. making up ground on the outside Richards-Ross got stronger, not weaker, this time over the last 100 meters. She surged to the finish, won by about a bodys length and punched her fist when she crossed the line in 49.55 seconds Sunday night to give the U.S. its first track and field gold medal of the London Olympics. I just kept saying, You can do this, you can do this, Richards-Ross said. I just dug really deep and Im very happy. Defending champion Christine Ohuruogu of Britain finished second in 49.70 and American DeeDee Trotter, decked out in red, white and blue glitter on her face, won the bronze in 49.72. This moment, though, belonged to Richards-Ross. At the end, she wrapped herself in the American flag and went to the stands to embrace her husband, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Aaron Ross, who took time off from NFL training camp to travel to London. You finally did it, you finally did it, babe, he told his wife. Enjoy the moment. Imagine what the trophy case at their house must look like. Ross has two Super Bowl rings, won when he played for the New York Giants. His wife now has an individual gold to go with two others she won in previous Olympic relays, with more possible in this years relays. The worlds top runner at this distance for much of the past four years, RichardsRoss has nonetheless been waiting impatiently for another shot at the individual gold she thought shed grab in 2008. That time, the final 100 meters of her race was a disaster. Leading coming into the stretch, she fell back dramatically, and a few minutes later, Ohuruogu was clutching the gold and Richards-Ross was crying in the lower level of the Birds Nest. Quite a different result this time around and quite a different scene at the finish. The run was phenomenal, Richards-Ross said. Its very, very challenging to get on the Olympic stage and give your best performance, to balance your emotions and physical. Its a huge weight off my shoulders. I kept telling myself, You are the champ. You are the champ. To go out there and actually accomplish it is really fantastic. three innings because of upper-back spasms and was replaced by Will Rhymes. The injury was not thought to be serious. NOTES: Showalter said the team should have a rehab program timeframe in a couple days for DH Jim Thome, on the disabled list due to a herniated disk in his neck. Thome received an epidural injection on Friday. ... Tampa Bay DH Luke Scott (right oblique) has resumed onfield batting practice. ... The Rays held their first bark in the park event, with approximately 450 dogs in attendance. A section in left field was reserved for dog owners and their pets.

Furyk had a one-shot lead playing the 18th, and got one big break when he pulled his tee shot into the trees and it ricocheted out into the fairway. Thats where it all started to go wrong. He went long of the green and the ball hopped out of the bunker and into the thick collar, forcing him to put his left foot into the sand. He flubbed the chip, just over the bunker into more thick grass, and his chip was a clunker, rolling out to just over 5 feet. Bradley also went long and plugged into the sand, and he blasted out to 15 feet behind the hole. The dynamics changed so suddenly. There was a chance for a four-way playoff if Bradley and Furyk missed, and Louis Oosthuizen made his birdie putt form just outside 12 feet. Bradley, whose putting carried him to a comeback in the PGA Championship, hit a pure stroke for the par to finish on 13-under 267. Then, it was up to Furyk to force the playoff. I hit my worst putt of the week, Furyk said. Bradley has three wins in two years on the PGA Tour, including a major and a World Golf Championship. He is only the 11th player to have won a major and a WGC. Stricker found his putting stroke at Firestone not that it was ever deep in hiding and showed that down the stretch with his closing stretch of birdies. It was an important performance for Stricker, who moved up three spots to No. 10 in the Ryder Cup standings. Furyk is No. 11, followed by Rickie Fowler at No. 12. Bradley moved to No. 4, and bumped out Hunter Mahan from the top eight for automatic spots after the PGA Championship next week. Oosthuizen closed with a 69 to finish alone in fourth. Justin Rose (67) and Rory McIlroy (68) were another shot behind. Tiger Woods played bogeyfree for a 66, his lowest score since a 65 in the second round at Bay Hill at the end of March. He was never in the tournament, 11 shots behind going into the final round, though he picked up the tiniest of consolations. He now has back-to-back finishes in the top 10 on the PGA Tour for the first time in nearly three years. And he at least heads to Kiawah Island feeling good about his game. I hit a lot of good shots and never really sniffed making a bogey all day, said Woods, who played his final 23 holes without a bogey. The nature of the course changed drastically with one-quarter inch of rain overnight, and a burst of showers that stopped play for nearly three hours Sunday morning. Shots to the green were spinning back instead of bouncing forward. Pars no longer were good enough.

Mexican singer dies at 93MEXICO CITY Chavela Vargas, who defied gender stereotypes to become one of the most legendary singers in Mexico, died Sunday at age 93. Her friend and biographer Maria Cortina said Vargas died at a hospital in the city of Cuernavaca, where she had been admitted for heart and respiratory problems. Vargas rose to fame flouting the Roman Catholic countrys preconceptions of what it meant to be a female singer: singing lusty ranchera songs while wearing mens clothes, carrying a pistol, drinking heavily and smoking cigars.Sheen donates to Reds fundCINCINNATI Actor Charlie Sheen, a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan, has pledged to donate $50,000 to the teams Community Fund, matching the amount broadcaster Marty Brennaman raised for charity in return for having his head shaved on the field. Sheen and father Martin Sheen, a Dayton native, were at the Reds game against Pittsburgh on Friday and saw Brennaman get his head shaved. Brennaman had promised to shave his hair if the Reds won 10 consecutive games and said he would do it publicly if fans donated at least $20,000 to the Reds fund. That drive generated $50,000, and Charlie Sheen announced Sunday he planned to match that amount.Shakespeare fest has unlikely starRENO, Nev. This summers Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival has produced an unlikely star: a pit bull named Michael who narrowly escaped euthanasia. Festival organizers and audience members say the 6-year-old American Staffordshire terrier has turned out to be a hoot in his role as Crab the dog in the comedy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona. They say Michael plays a miscreant of sorts who doesnt care to please his owner, and his different spontaneous reactions to his owners laments prompt laughter. His real owner, Michelle Okashima of Incline Village, said Michael was scheduled for euthanasia in 2006 in Reno after he was found running loose and he went unclaimed. The festival continues through Aug. 26. CHRISTYLEMIRE AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES The Dark Knight Rises topped the box office for the third week in a row, making $36.4 million this past weekend. The finale in Christopher Nolans epic Batman trilogy has now made nearly $355 million domestically alone, according to Sunday estimates from Warner Bros. Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell in a new take on the thriller that provided Arnold Schwarzenegger with one of his best-loved actions roles in 1990, opened in second place with $26 million, Columbia Pictures said. And the Fox family comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days debuted at No. 3 with $14.7 million. Warner Bros. head of distribution Dan Fellman said he wasnt surprised by the films strong showing in its third week; it only dropped 41 percent compared to the 43 percent drop in week three that The Dark Knight experienced in 2008. He also said the film is getting back on track to perform at its expected pace following the opening-night shooting in Aurora, Colo., that left 12 dead and 58 others injured. The support from audiences across North America has been outstanding, Fellman said. The movie speaks for itself, and the unfortunate tragedy that took place hurt everyone. Were obviously very moved by the events that took place. The Dark Knight Rises has now set an IMAX record, he said, with nearly $48 million of the films gross coming from the large-screen format. Nolan shot more than 40 percent of the film in IMAX with the intention of having it projected that way. Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com, said he was surprised that The Dark Knight Rises held so well in its third week. It was the clear runaway favorite. I thought it would be a race for the No. 1 spot with Total Recall, he said. The Dark Knight is rising above the fray and word of mouth is just tremendous on the film and people keep going back to see it. Rory Bruer, Sonys president of worldwide distribution, said Total Recall opened close to the studios high-$20 million estimate. But it was also No. 1 in many of the dozen international markets in which it opened, including India, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand for a total of $6.2 million. It expands to Europe and Latin America in upcoming weeks. Farrell stars in this version of the futuristic Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale as a man who struggles to piece together his memory after he discovers the life hes been living is a fabrication. Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel co-star. The thing about Total Recall is that its always been made for the world stage, and were off to a good start opening in smaller markets this week, Bruer said. Overall when you consider this movie was made for such a reasonable price ($125 million), for the scenario of what we got, weve opened really well. I think were going to be very pleased with the result. Also this week, the Universal Pictures comedy Ted made an additional $5.5 million to cross the $200 million mark domestically; it also had a huge weekend internationally, taking in $32 million. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane directed for the first time and provides the voice of a foul-mouthed, pot-smoking teddy bear whos the lifelong best friend of Mark Wahlbergs character. Its very, very R-rated but its the quintessential word-of-mouth movie, Dergarabedian said. You see it and youve got to take your friends to see it so they can believe what youre saying.

B6MONDAY, AUGUST6, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Eric Berne was a Canadian-born psychiatrist who created transactional analysis and wrote Games People Play. He said: A loser doesnt know what hell do if he loses, but talks about what hell do if he wins. A winner doesnt talk about what hell do if he wins, but knows what hell do if he loses. Recently I have been asked by students and by readers of this column how to count losers as declarer in a trump contract. I was then surprised to discover that I have not specifically covered this topic in any of my theme weeks. Lets lose no time in rectifying that oversight. Assuming your hand has more trumps than the dummy, you look at your 13 cards, take dummys high cards into account, and work out what tricks you might lose. You are South, in four spades. How many losers do you have? You should see four: one spade, two diamonds and one club. And given that the lead has been the diamond queen, if you win the first or second diamond trick and immediately play a trump, you should lose those four tricks. How can you eliminate that extra loser? There are two common ways of getting rid of a loser. First, you can take a discard. Look at the hearts. That suit will provide three winners, and on the third round you can discard a diamond, cutting your loser count to three. So, after taking the diamond ace, cash the heart queen (the honor from the shorter side first), play a heart to dummys king, and pitch a diamond on the heart ace. Then, with your loser count not too high, draw trumps as quickly as possible. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Locked Up Abroad Drugs, Inc. The Cannabis industry. Drugs, Inc.

During visits to Grandmas house, our daughter had to entertain herself in a spare bedroom because Grandmas dogs didnt like kids, and Grandma wouldnt lock up her babies for the sake of ours. We planned family trips, but Grandma would always cancel at the last minute. We invited her to school plays and recitals, but Grandma said they were boring and told our daughter that she had no talent. Mom has a terrible temper and would slap our daughter for things like talking while the TV was on. Grandma did give our daughter lots of gifts, and our daughter always thanked her. But the gifts were thoughtless anything Mom could pick up cheaply, with no consideration of age, gender or interests. She once bought our teenage girl a toy that was appropriate for a 3-year-old boy. My daughter is a young adult now. She is polite to her grandmother when she sees her and sends holiday cards with short notes, but otherwise avoids her. She considers Grandma to be a well-intentioned lunatic. The problem is, Grandma has decided that my daughter owes her attention since she was such a loving, wonderful grandmother, and she is upset about the very sensible boundaries our daughter is drawing for involving Grandma in her personal life. I am being blamed for the distance between them and am expected to fix it. Grandma is hypersensitive. Suggesting that she might need to do things differently makes her furious. Any ideas? In the Middle Dear Middle: You need to stay out of this as much as possible. Your daughter should continue to send cards and thank her grandmother for any gifts, and you can encourage her to periodically phone Grandma or email her with whatever updates she is willing to share. Beyond that express sympathy when Mom wants more, and ignore as much as you can. This isnt your responsibility. Dear Annie: An acquaintance sits beside me at the counter in a local diner several times a week. We both go there because neither of us likes to eat alone. Heres the problem: When Bill comes in, he sits beside me, but wont speak unless I speak to him first. I actually have waited for more than an hour, and he wouldnt talk. Once I do get him to speak, he cant hold up his end of the conversation. Hell mumble a few words, and then hes done. During a two-hour dinner, Bill said fewer than 14 words. I counted. Yet he always makes a beeline for the open stool beside me. By the way, Bill does this with everyone, not just me. I dont want to hurt his feelings, but this is so exasperating, its affecting my health. Frustrated in Texas Dear Texas: Bill sounds socially awkward. Having a conversation is difficult and stressful for him. He sits near you because, for whatever reason, you make him feel comfortable. He doesnt expect you to converse with him, although he probably appreciates the brief attempts. If you can understand that Bill considers you good company as you are, you might not feel so pressured to get him to talk, which ought to alleviate some of your frustration. Dear Annie: Patty was worried that her husband would find her uninteresting once the kids left home. One of the best empty nest activities is bridge. Its a very social activity, and strategy games are thought to help prevent dementia and other age-related problems. There are bridge clubs throughout the United States, and once you learn the game, you can travel with your spouse for a combination of bridge playing and touring. My wife and I met through bridge. Patty can get more information at the American Contract Bridge League website at acbl.org.

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.
