Issues werent debated in some anonymous forum. They were out in the open, on the avenue, at City Hall or the courthouse. Politics was local and it was personal to the folks who grew up in Citrus County, before northerners invaded and the population spread away from Crystal River and Inverness. It was a constant source of conversation at the Tolle dinner table. After all, Kay Tolles father, Hugh Barco, was tax assessor for 22 years. Her husband, Ed, had the same job for 10 years and also served on the Crystal River City Council. Their daughter, Laura Lou Fitzpatrick, spoke warmly of the memories Monday. My mom and dad loved politics, she said. Mom was behind the scenes. Mrs. Tolle, a fourthgeneration Citrus Countian, died Friday, Aug. 3, 2012. She was 86.

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS A man accused of brandishing a laser-equipped pistol, threatening to shoot people with it and harassing patrons at a local bar was taken into custody Sunday night, according to the Citrus County Sheriff Office. Jason Thomas Foster, 40, who lives on North Golf Harbor Path near Inverness, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and driving under the influence (DUI). His bond is $8,500. According to Fosters arrest affidavit, when investigators arrived at Coachs Bar and Restaurant, a man told them he had just been threatened by an intoxicated individual carrying a gun. The witness said Foster approached him on the sidewalk near the bar and asked if he wanted to hang out. He declined. He told investigators that Foster then became angry and reached in his pocket and turned on a green laser and told him the laser was attached to a firearm for better aim. Foster reportedly then threatened to shoot the man. According to the report, the man fled to his vehicle where he, too, reportedly had a firearm. When investigators talked to witnesses at the bar, an employee said she recalled Foster as someone who was bugging other patrons. She reportedly told investigators she yelled at Foster to move to another side of the bar in a bid to separate him from other patrons. She alleged Foster then pulled a black gun with a green laser attached to show her. She said Foster even turned on the laser and said to her they dont know who they are messing with. The witness reportedly asked Foster to leave the bar, which he did. Two other witnesses said Foster approached them and asked if they were gay and threatened to shoot them, but said he never brandished a weapon. At the same time that investigators were talking to witnesses at the bar about Foster, he was pulled over in a traffic stop on Gospel See ARREST / Page A4 Right now, because of the high tide (rain water), were getting a lot of flood water and salt marsh mosquitoes, said Director of the CCMCD Joel Jacobson. All it takes is one tablespoon of water to breed more than 200 mosquitoes, and four days for them to become biting adults. Arboviruses, or mosquito-transmitted disease, are a high concern for the CCMCD due to the high influx of mosquitoes. These viruses include: malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, dengue fever and dog heartworm. Mosquitoes cannot transmit the AIDS virus. Even in times of drought, animals, such as birds, will gather in large numbers at small water sources, allowing mosquitoes to travel easily from bird to bird to human. Its called a fibonacci sequence, said Jacobson. Container breeders, spawning from manmade sites and materials, are also a more direct route to people, but are still easily preventable. Here are a few ways to defend yourself from mosquitoes and even prevent more mosquitoes from appearing.

M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Voters wont find state Sen. Charlie Deans name on any ballot this election season, but that doesnt mean the veteran politician is sitting out the campaign. Dean, who was re-elected to another four-year term with opposition, has supported financially two of the three Republican candidates for Citrus County sheriff. And he also speaks highly of Scott Adams, one of four candidates in the county commission District 5 race and a business associate in several Sumter County solid-waste disposal companies. Dean, R-Inverness, doesnt say he supports Adams for county commission and he didnt want to criticize anyone else Dean, Adams share business interests See DEAN / Page A5 Senator supporting two candidates in GOP sheriff race Sen.

N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterHERNANDO The marks of membership into this exclusive group include a red heart-shaped pillow and a vertical scar that resembles a zipper running down a persons chest. On April 26, Gerretje Bink, 81, became the 2,000th person to undergo openheart surgery at Citrus Memorial Health System since the hospital opened its $14.2 million heart unit in 2004. After three and a half months, Bink is doing well, she said from her home in Hernando. As of Monday, the heart unit has performed 2,052 open heart surgeries, averaging four or five surgeries per week, hospital spokeswoman Katie Mehl. Hospital CEO Ryan Beaty said, Im proud of the physicians, nurses and techs who have gotten us to this significant milestone. Its an honor to have healed so many hearts in Citrus County. I was very healthy before or so I thought, Bink said. However, looking back, she said there had been warning signs that she didnt think were significant at first. In January, Binks husband of 58 years, Idsard, died. A month or so later, she sat at her kitchen table with her daughter, Diane Marks, talking about things she wished she had done, such as visiting New York City. So, they planned a trip, a girls getaway, six of them in all. A couple of days before our trip, Mom had a cough, Marks said. They wrote it off as a cold coming on. Bink was short of breath as well, which they thought was caused by excitement or nerves. The night before they left, Bink had a hard time sleeping, and her legs were cramping and jittery. Again, they thought it was nerves. The women went to New York, saw the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, went to Macys, saw Wicked on Broadway and the whole time Bink had trouble breathing, especially walking four flights of stairs to her granddaughters apartment. Everywhere, I had to stop to take a breath, she said. She thought it was the fumes from the traffic, the air inside the subway. Once back home it didnt go away, plus she kept falling asleep. Bink went to her family doctor who told her there was something wrong, which began a series of cardiac tests. I was home in bed one night and my grandson was staying with me, Bink said. I got a jolt in my chest and I told my grandson, Call your mom; something is wrong. Marks came right away and took her mom to the CMHS emergency room where she was admitted for pneumonia and further tests. After 10 days she was diagnosed with a collapsed heart valve and two blocked arteries and needed openheart surgery. I said, Surgery? At my age? Ill have to think about it. I was scared, and it was so soon since my husband died, she said. All my kids were there and the doctors told them I would be OK. She said she was comforted when heart surgeon Dr. Peter Kim prayed with the entire family. Bink said the surgery went well and she didnt experience as much pain as she had anticipated, adding that she is getting stronger every day. She keeps the heart pillow given to every heart surgery patient on her bed alongside another heart pillow her children gave her for Mothers Day. Marks said the experience has brought the family closer together. I call her every morning and every evening just to check and ask, How was your day? I want to have that constant contact, she said. I dont want to take her life for granted. It happened too fast with my dad, and I dont want to have any regrets.

SIDIBE Staff WriterSteve Burch has made his experience as a budget manager one of the cornerstones of his campaign for Citrus County sheriff. So when his opponent for the Republican nomination, Winn Webb, publicly questioned Burchs budget credentials at the recent Chronicle Political Forum by claiming he presided over a bloated budget, Burch felt he had to respond. Burch, who was Crystal River Police chief from 2004 to 2008, said Webbs claim that Burch inherited a $1.1 million budget and grew it to $1.9 million in his last year in office is not an entirely true characterization. According to figures provided to the Chronicle by the city of Crystal River, the budgets approved by city officials were as follows: 2004 $1.3 million; 2005 $1.6 million; 2006 $1.9 million; 2007 $1.6 million. The $1.9 million was because we had $125,000 in grants and the housing boom caused us to plan for things we thought would expand our areas of work. But you can see, when the economic climate and boom changed, we adjusted our budget, Burch said. Webb said he was quoting numbers he got from the citys finance department and that the figures confirm the point he was trying to make. The fact is, his budgets grew, and if you are going to call yourself a fiscal conservative, well, show something that backs that claim, Webb said. And, grants are taxpayers money. Government doesnt make money, they only take and spend, Webb said. Despite the increase in his budget during his tenure, Burch believes he made the right fiscal decisions trying to anticipate future coverage. Burch shared a memo he wrote to city officials in June of 2007, anticipating the impending budgetary crunch and offering cuts and other measures commensurate with funding cuts. It shows we were streamlining the structure of the department while addressing the safety needs of the city, Burch said. Burch, Webb and Hank Hemrick are vying for the GOP nod Aug. 14 to take on incumbent Jeff Dawsy in November.Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe can be reached at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Burch, Webb dispute budget figures M ATTHEWB ECK Staff writerPINE RIDGE A three-car crash along West Pine Ridge Boulevard on Monday morning required two drivers to be transported to the hospital, one by helicopter. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Mick Whitsel explained how the 11 a.m. crash occurred. A 2006 Ford work van driven by John Ferguson of Beverly Hills was stopped in the southbound lane of West Pine Ridge Boulevard attempting to turn east onto West Ranger Street, as Citrus Springs resident Katherine Burns, also heading south on the same road, slowed behind the van. The trooper said as Burns 2008 Toyota minivan slowly rolled, preparing to stop behind the work van, as a Honda driven by Richard Tangeman of Crystal River approached from behind the other two vehicles. Trooper Whitsel said the driver of the Toyota observed the gentleman in the Honda coming up pretty quick behind her so she attempted to turn to the left to keep from getting hit from behind. The trooper said of Tangeman, at the last minute he tried to cut to the right, but his left front hit her right rear. He said the side of Burns vehicle then hit the van, causing minor damage to the bumper and doors of the van. The impact from the car and minivan threw Tangeman to slam face first into the windshield of his car, shattering the windshield and leaving an outward dent in the glass. His face hit the windshield pretty hard, Trooper Whitsel said. After the impact between the three vehicles, the Honda careened along the west shoulder of the road and through a thick stand of trees in the front yard of a home. The car came to a stop after slamming into an oak tree. The crash resulted in injuries to two of the three drivers. The trooper said Tangemans injuries were attributable to the lack of a safety restraint. If he was wearing his seat belt he probably wouldnt have gotten hurt at all, he said. You can see his faceprint in the glass, it drove him right into the windshield. The trooper said that seatbelts save lives and they need to be worn by all occupants in a vehicle. One of the main important things to wearing a seat belt is maintaining control of your vehicle, he said. If you get into a hard crash like this, and it knocks you off course, you have the potential of coming out from behind the steering wheel. If youre not behind the steering wheel, youre not going to be able to drive that car. You have to be able to maintain control of your vehicle. Tangeman was transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville with head trauma. Burns was transported to Citrus Memorial after complaining of neck pain. The driver of the work van didnt report any injuries. Charges are pending. Chronicle staff writer Matthew Beck can be reached at 352-5642919 or mbeck@chronicle online.com.

Wreck puts 2 in hospital Trooper: Driver of one car wasnt wearing seat belt C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterA landowners petition to essentially remove part of a proposed road southeast of the Crystal River area received the support last week of the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC). Furman and Hilpert Engineering applied on behalf of owners Earnest and Joy Gallion to remove a portion of North Gulf Avenue within the Gallions property. The vacated section of roadway would stop North Gulf Avenue from connecting from the west side of West Gulf-to-Lake Highway as its northern point to North Marion Way as its southern point. North Gulf Avenue would terminate behind the Family Dollar store on West Gulf-to-Lake Highway opposite the entrance to Meadowcrest. According to the petition, a portion of the roadway has been constructed, while the remainder of the roadway location is vacant and heavily wooded. The unconstructed portion of the roadway also may contain wetlands. Another re-plat would need to be done to provide roadway access for other tracts of land. County staff from several divisions reviewed the request. The Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Operations Center had no objection. Most utility companies had no objection, although the Withlacoochee River Electric Co-op and the Mosquito Control District requested easements for their access. Initially, the countys engineering division questioned whether the request was consistent with the countys comprehensive plan. Later, it recommended approval. The petition now will go before the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for its approval. The PDC postponed hearing a conditional-use request by Mike Scott Plumbing for land application of treated domestic septage and sanitary waste in an agricultural district on land along South Pleasant Grove Road in Inverness owned by Ella and John Thomas. The applicant proposes to spread domestic septage across 12 acres of land currently used for pasture. The land is otherwise vacant and is part of two larger parcels that contain a single-family residence and agricultural outbuildings. The request is scheduled to be continued on Sept. 20.

Panel weighs in on road issue Miami-Dade mulls lifting ban on pit bulls Associated PressMIAMI A 23-year-old ban on pit bulls, passed after the vicious mauling of a 7-year-old girl, is up for a vote in Miami-Dade County. Pit bull advocates blame the ban on overheated emotions and say they are working to free dogs from unfair imprisonment. But the girl who was mauled, now a 31-year-old hospital administrator, says the bans critics are playing on the emotions of animal lovers at the expense of public safety. If a ballot measure repealing the ban is approved Aug. 14, Miami-Dade County would join the rest of Florida, which prohibits breed-specific laws. MiamiDades ban was grandfathered in. The county commission put the measure on the ballot after the state Legislature rejected a bill that would have overturned Miami-Dades exemption. The ban also made news last winter when the Miami Marlins acquired pitcher Mark Buehrle, who owns a pit bull. Buehrle and his family eventually bought a home in neighboring Broward County so they could keep their dog, Slater. Jamie Buehrle, the pitchers wife, has joined pit bull advocates pushing to overturn the Miami-Dade ordinance. It obviously angers me because thats like basing just on looks and not the actual personality of a dog, said Jamie Buehrle, with Slater on a leash beside her. Its just discrimination, theres no other way around it, theres no other way to describe it. But Melissa Moreira, whose mauling prompted the ban, wants the ordinance to remain on the books. I think that if I were bit by a poodle, I wouldnt have had to have eight major reconstructive plastic surgeries, said Moreira, whose face and scalp still show faded but distinct scars. The dog attacked her, her mother and grandmother as they were carrying groceries into their house. It pulled back Moreiras scalp, exposed the bone on her forehead and left her upper lip hanging. As one neighbor fought the dog, another fatally shot it with a handgun. The people pushing to own pit bulls are just putting themselves at risk. Theyre not taking into account what might happen, and its not safe behavior, Moreira said. Getting reliable statistics on dog bites is difficult no government agency tracks them nationally. Director of Miami-Dade animal services, Alex Munoz, said roughly 3,000 dog bites are reported to the county each year, but the agency doesnt break down the data by breed. If you asked me if there was a predominance of pit bull bites versus other dogs, we dont see a predominance of pit bull bites, Munoz said. Some say its that the ban works. Some say its just because theyre no different from any other dog. Advocates: Breed unfairly demonized

ARREST Continued from Page A1 Pelosi backs Reids comments on Romney Associated PressBOCA RATON House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi came to the defense of Sen. Harry Reid on Monday over his comments about Mitt Romneys taxes. Reid outraged some Republicans with his remarks last week that hed been told the GOP presidential candidate didnt pay taxes for 10 years, without identifying his source. Pelosi defended the Senate majority leader, saying though it remains to be seen whether the allegation is true, she doesnt believe Reid did anything wrong in publicizing it. If he has said somebody told him that, some credible source, then I believe that, she told reporters after an appearance at a Boca Raton retirement community. She continued: Thats up to Gov. Romney to release his returns and disprove the rumors. Democrats have pressed Romney to release additional years of tax returns, suggested he has something to hide in his finances and tried to make his personal wealth a campaign issue. Pelosi appeared with congressional candidate Lois Frankel and sought to convince seniors that Democrats are the most ardent defenders of Medicare and Social Security. She criticized Romney, who has voiced support for a House Republican plan that would shift Medicare from a fee-for-service program into one where future retirees buy insurance using subsidies. Thats just not what Medicare is about, Pelosi said. We cannot have our seniors be at the mercy of the health insurance industry. This is a guarantee. We cannot turn it into a gamble.

Mosquito Protection Cover up: wear clothing that covers most of your skin. Use repellents: Those with up to 30 percent DEET are recommended. Picardin, oil of lemon, eucalyptus and IR3535, a spray alternative to DEET, are also effective. Not all repellents are safe to use on children. Always read instruction labels before using. Repair torn screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering home. Drain standing water round your home. Mosquito Breeding Sites Low areas that hold water for several days. River and stream floodplains. Drainage ditches that hold water. Overflowing septic tanks. Tires and bird baths. Unmaintained swimming pools. Tree holes. Containers that hold water: cans, bottles, flower pots, buckets, etc. How To Eliminate Breeding Sites Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. Remove old tires, or drill drain holes in those use din playgrounds. Turn over or remove empty plastic pots. Pick up all beverage containers and cups. Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Pump out bilge pumps on boats. Change water in birdbaths, animal feeding dishes and plant trays at least once a week. Remove vegetation or obstructions that prevent the flow of water in drainage ditches. For more information on mosquito-borne illnesses, breeding sites and other tips, visit the Florida Department of Healths website at www.myfloridaeh. com or visit the the Citrus County Mosquito Control District at www.citrus mosquito.com.

General & Cosmetic Dentistry HONEST PROFESSIONAL COMPASSIONATE Most Insurance Accepted Se Habla Espaol Hugh Tolle, and a bevy of grandchildren and greatgrandchildren whom she adored. One son, Edgar Tolle III, died of cancer in 1975. Mrs. Tolle was born Sept. 18, 1925, in Crystal River to Hugh and Edna Eubanks Barco, both from pioneer Citrus County families. She attended school in Inverness and continued her education at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, graduating with a bachelors degree. She met Ed while at college and they were married March 14, 1946. As a mom, Mrs. Tolle was both loving and stern, from the time her children were young to their growing up into successful business people. She was the leader of our house, Fitzpatrick said. Mom was very strong with everything we did, our corporations, Heritage Village. She was a great businesswoman. She taught us everything as mothers do, but she lived it. That was the example I followed. When Moms happy, everybodys happy. Citrus County School Board member Ginger Bryant, who taught five or six of Mrs. Tolles grandchildren in Crystal River, recalled Mrs. Tolles grace. She was a grand lady, Bryant said. She lived a good life. She just exuded everything southern. Along with her husband, Mrs. Tolle was a force in the Citrus County Democratic Party for many years. She did so not with a heavy hand but, rather, with charm. When Kay spoke, it was with a smile and kindness, said state Sen. Charlie Dean, who grew up in Inverness and was a Democratic sheriff. If she was talking about some issue, youd better be listening because she knew what she was talking about. Former Chronicle Publisher David Arthurs said Mrs. Tolle deserved her standing. To my way of thinking she always had the best interest in the community at heart, Arthurs said. Fitzpatrick said her mother taught the children manners. Our family had always been into politics, she said. You behaved in a certain way. People are watching you! Mom had always been so strong. She was full of life and she loved her family. Mrs. Tolle died of pancreatic cancer. Doctors told her about two months ago that she had just a short time remaining. She amazed me, Fitzpatrick said. Im not sure I ever saw my mom shed a tear during that time. She handled it with grace. She made sure the details were taken care of and she wanted her family to come and visit her. I wouldnt trade that time for anything in the world. Of her mothers life, she added: It was an amazing journey.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

MOSQUITO Continued from Page A1 in the race. However, Dean said he is fond of Adams, whom he has known since Adams was a child. I know him to be a very honest man, Dean said. I have a great deal of admiration and respect how much he has matured. According to state Division of Corporation records, Dean is a director in companies that list Adams as vice president and Deans son, Charlie Dean Jr., as president. They are: Sumter Recycling and Solid Waste Disposal Inc.; Goodfellas Roll-Off Waste Disposal Inc.; Sumter Class I & Solid Waste Disposal Inc.; and ACMS Inc. Both Adams and Sen. Dean are listed as directors in a fifth company, 3Corp Management Inc. ACMS is a landfill in Lake Panasoffkee. According to Adams candidate financial disclosure form, ACMS is worth $2.4 million; Adams lists his total net worth at $5.7 million higher than any other commission candidate. As a citizen hes honest and hes approachable and hes sincere, Dean said. As a business partner hes very capable. As for sheriff candidates Steve Burch and Winn Webb, an organization called Nature Coast Conservative Coalition donated $500 each to their campaigns. The coalition is a committee of continuous existence that supports political candidates in Florida. Dean founded the committee in 2007; his son, Charlie Dean Jr., now is listed as its chairman. Dean, whose political battles with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy on funding for child-protection services are widely known, said he thinks both Burch and Webb are capable of beating the incumbent. Theyre two great Republicans, he said. Both are good law enforcement people. Dean said he would also support Hank Hemrick if he wins the Republican primary. I like Hank, he said. Hes a good man.

DEAN Continued from Page A1 State BRIEFS Firefighters rescue nine ducklings BRADENTON Firefighters came to the rescue of nine ducklings stuck in a southwest Florida storm drain. A frantic male duck caught the attention of Don McLucas as he got into his car in Bradenton on Sunday. Then McLucas heard some noises coming from the nearby storm drain. The ducklings and their mother were caught behind the drains grate. McLucas went to the nearest firehouse for help. Capt. Matt Sawyer told The Herald that his firefighters have had to rescue ducklings before, but the small birds usually try to flee into even more hard-to-reach spaces. On Sunday, the firefighters removed the storm drains covers and climbed down to the ducks to lift them out one by one. Sea turtle nest count on the rise DAYTONA BEACH Wildlife officials said sea turtle nest counts are up, particularly on central Florida beaches. In Volusia County, turtles have dug 2,884 nests so far this year, up from 2,356 nests all last year. That includes nests dug on Canaveral National Seashore, which stretches into Brevard County. In Flagler County, turtles have dug 555 nests so far this year, compared with 444 in 2011. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission scientist Blair Witherington said Flagler and Volusia beaches help the state gauge how sea turtles are doing overall. Witherington told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that nest counts are up about 50 percent statewide over last year. From wire reports GOT A NEWS TIP?

We have a responsibility to balance an elite games with sport for all, Adams said. We try to make it as level a playing field as possible. That is more possible when national Olympic committees and sport federations receive government money. When they dont, or when there isnt enough money to go around, athletes have little choice but to go it alone eking out a living and scrambling for sponsorship deals when they can get them. That includes the United States. The U.S. Olympic Committee is a nonprofit that gets no help from the federal government. Nick Symmonds, a fourtime U.S. outdoor track champion in the 800-meter, auctioned a spot on his shoulder on eBay for $11,100 for a temporary tattoo with the name of the highest bidder. Hanson Dodge Creative, a marketing firm, made the winning bid, but Symmonds had to cover the shoulder because of IOC rules preventing athletes from hawking their brands during the Olympics. Japanese equestrian rider Kenki Sato has one of the more unusual jobs: Hes a monk at his familys Buddhist temple near Nagano, the site of the 1998 Winter Games. Sato acknowledged he was probably the only Olympian with such a profession, but said the discipline of his day job he sometimes spends 19 hours a day meditating helps him while hes riding. Before the competition starts, I concentrate. Im behaving more like a monk, he said. But of all the extracurricular jobs among the 2012 crop of Olympians, perhaps Logan Campbells raised the most eyebrows. The New Zealand taekwondo fighter opened a high-end brothel in 2009 in Auckland to finance his training and travel schedule ahead of the Olympics, so his family wouldnt have to bear the burden. Prostitution is legal in New Zealand. At the time, taekwondo wasnt getting any funding at all, Campbell said earlier this year. So it was pretty much to get good at the sport, you had to get international competition, and there wasnt any funding for us. Campbell, who competes Thursday, sold the brothel in 2010 after he was criticized by Taekwondo New Zealand and the national Olympic committee and, more importantly, after sponsors started funding the sport. Darrell Bree Sr., 77HERNANDO Darrell R. Bree Sr., 77, of Hernando, died Sunday, Aug. 5, 2012, at his home. Heinz Funeral Home & Cremation, Inverness. Fred Persechino, 72 FLORAL CITYFred Anthony Persechino, 72, Floral City, died Aug. 4, 2012, at Lakeshore Villas Rehab Center in Tampa under the loving care of his family.

Associated Press Japans Kenki Sato and his horse Chippieh compete Monday in the equestrian cross-country stage at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Sato is a monk at his familys Buddhist temple. Even among Olympians, a tale of haves and have-nots Associated PressLONDON Over his remarkable career, Michael Phelps has struck sponsorship deals with Speedo, Subway, Under Armour athletic wear, Omega watches and Procter & Gamble. But not everyone at the London Games can be showered with corporate largesse like the most decorated Olympian of all time. Most work one, two, even seven jobs while finding time to train to face fully funded pros. In this battle of haves and have-nots at the London Games, the have-nots include a bartender, a Buddhist monk, a onetime brothel owner and a man renting his body. Irish boxer Darren ONeill quit his job teaching at Holy Trinity Primary School in Dublin to train full-time for the Olympics and isnt sure hell get the job back when he goes home. He also had to give up hurling, a rough-andtumble native Irish sport that combines elements of field hockey, rugby and soccer. It is dominant in his hometown, hurlingmad Kilkenny. I enjoyed the teaching as a release from boxing, too, and took a risk in leaving, he said. It was a tough decision, same as leaving the hurling, but boxing gave me more personal satisfaction. ONeill lost last week in his second bout, to Stefan Hartel of Germany, but hell go back to find a handpainted banner on the school roof that says GOOD LUCK MR. ONEILL. Lance Brooks, an American discus thrower, worked as a bouncer and bartender and whats known as a barbacker restocking the cooler and taking out the trash when he moved to Denver five years ago and started to train. He also worked Colorado Rockies baseball games, coached at a local high school, worked at an oil-change service and did construction all before his coach told him to cut out some of the jobs or lose his trainer. Mark Adams, a spokesman for the International Olympic Committee, said the IOC distributes more than 90 percent of its revenue from TV rights and sponsorship deals to national Olympic committees, in part to ease the burden on athletes. The IOC has its own program, Solidarity, that provides training, equipment and travel money for particularly needy athletes.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is quietly feuding with the GOP-controlled Legislature over who should have a say over more than $300 million intended to help homeowners. Florida is directly receiving $334 million as part of its share of a national $25 billion settlement with five of the nations largest mortgage lenders. This is separate from an estimated $8 billion also expected to go to help homeowners and borrowers in the state. The settlement was announced six months ago and finalized in early April. But since that time, Bondi has not announced any plans on how the states share of the money would be spent. Thats because Bondi the states top legal officer has asserted that her office can spend the money without first getting approval from state legislators. Legislative leaders, however, contend that Floridas constitution gives the Legislature the power to make spending decisions. I do think it has to be authorized by the Legislature, said Sen. J.D. Alexander, RLake Wales and the Senate budget chief. Alexander, however, said that legislators would likely give great deference to how Bondi wants to spend the money. Im sure there would be a general desire to be respectful of Attorney General Bondis leadership, he added. The settlement was announced back in February with great fanfare by the federal government and 49 of the nations attorney generals. The payout settles allegations of widespread robo-signing of foreclosure documents and other fraudulent practices involving loans to struggling homeowners. Florida, as one of the states hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis, received one of the largest shares of the landmark settlement. THE FINAL WORDING OF THE SETTLEMENT STATES THAT 10 PERCENT OF FLORIDAS SHARE SHALL BE PAID TO THE STATE AS A PENALTY, MEANING THE MONEY GOES DIRECTLY INTO STATE COFFERS. BUT THE REMAINING MONEY CANNOT BE RELEASED UNLESS BONDI ORDERS IT. That hasnt happened so far because Bondi and her staff have been holding meetings with legislative staff about the attorney generals insistence that she be allowed to spend the money without getting prior apS TATEC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 7, 2012 A9 000C43I www.chronicleonline.com Buy a Dinner and Help Fight Alzheimers!

Rick Scott will have a speaking role at the Republican National Convention later this month, the GOP confirmed after releasing a list of some of the speakers for the event. Scott has been mostly on the periphery of national GOP politics, and there have been questions about what role he would play in the RNC gathering in Tampa. Hes not as strong a public speaker as a number of other GOP leaders, and his message that the economy, at least here, is looking up and jobs are being created is at odds with the national message of the party and its presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who are trying to make the case that the jobs picture is dismal. The Tampa Bay Timesreported that the RNC is set to announce several speakers for the Aug. 27-30 convention, where Romney will be officially tapped as the partys nominee. A few other GOP governors will also speak, notably South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, both minorities. Haley is of Indian descent and Martinez is Hispanic as the Republicans try to reach out to minority voters. The partys last presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, is also set to appear, as are former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the Times reported. Still to be named is a keynote speaker. Pundits have floated several likely candidates for that coveted post, most prominently New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan has also been mentioned as someone likely to have a major role. Rubio has also been frequently mentioned as a possible running mate pick for Romney. The first speakers on the schedule were first reported by The Tampa Bay Times late Sunday and were confirmed to The Associated Press by Republican officials. Convention officials have not yet released the schedule. The outline doesnt include any mention of when Scott will get to speak, including whether it will be in one of the coveted primetime slots.

Associated PressMIAMI The historic but empty federal courthouse in downtown Miami is a costly symbol of the governments sluggishness at selling or finding new purposes for some 14,000 vacant or underused properties nationwide, Republican lawmakers said at a House panel hearing Monday. Unfortunately, this will be a pattern from sea to shining sea, said U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Its very frustrating. Mica and fellow Republican Reps. Jeff Denham of California and Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida held the fourth in a series of subcommittee hearings into federal property management practices inside the David W. Dyer Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, which has been vacant four years since a new courthouse opened across the street. The courthouse is owned by the General Services Administration, which said it has only about 124 excess properties on the governmentwide list of 14,000 cited by Mica. The property hearings, which continue Aug. 17 at the Los Angeles federal court complex, follow several previous GSA scandals that spotlighted costly staff conferences and payment of exorbitant bonuses to agency officials. The panel previously held hearings in the Washington, D.C., area spotlighting unused properties such as the Old Post Office Annex, the Cotton Annex and the Old Georgetown Plant. all of which are GSAowned and have sat vacant for years. Opened in 1933, the 166,577square-foot Dyer building is on the National Register of Historic Places. But it has been deteriorating for years and has an extensive mold problem in South Floridas hot and humid climate. Still, maintaining the vacant structure costs taxpayers about $1.2 million a year, Mica said. Among many other cases, the main courtroom where Mondays hearing was held was the site of the 1992 drug and racketeering conviction of former Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega and the 1973-74 tax evasion trial of mobster Meyer Lansky, who was acquitted. Last week, just as the hearing was announced, GSA said it filed a Request for Information asking Miami developers and the business community for suggestions on what to do with the Dyer building. It seems the GSA only takes action when we hold hearings, Denham said. John Smith, a regional commissioner for GSAs Public Buildings Service, said the original plan was to move other federal offices into the Dyer building but an estimated $60 million renovation cost halted that plan. Under the new proposal, if new tenants moved in it would still likely cost at least $10 million to separate the Dyer building from other judicial offices in the downtown complex. Were looking at any and all possibilities, Smith told the panel. Smith added that 34 GSA real estate assets in the Southeast region have been disposed of in the past 10 years, generating about $24 million. Associated Press The David W. Dyer courthouse, a vacant federal building, is seen Monday in Miami. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., held a hearing Monday at the courthouse where they questioned General Services Administration (GSA) and U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) officials during an ongoing investigation to stop the federal government from wasting billions of dollars of taxpayers money by sitting on its assets and mismanaging valuable federal-owned properties.

Best Buy founder offers to buy company, take it privateNEW YORK Best Buys co-founder is looking to make a buy of his own, offering to take the electronics seller private only months after leaving as the companys chairman. Best Buy said it would consider the offer but called it highly conditional. And analysts are skeptical that former Chairman Richard Schulzes opening offer of $24 to $26 per share would get a deal done and that it could be tricky to line up investment firms to help pay for it. Over the past year, Best Buy has announced a major restructuring plan and fired CEO Brian Dunn amid allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a female employee. Knight avoids collapse with $400 million lifeline NEW YORK Knight Capital Group survived a near-death experience on Monday, lining up Wall Street firms to lend it badly needed cash after the brokerage lost $440 million last week when a malfunction in its trading system flooded the market with erroneous trades. But the rescue, which came down to the wire, had a steep price: control of the firm. And its still not certain that Knight will make it through the episode intact. Knights new investors will gain a 73 percent stake in the company and three board seats. The value of current shareholders stake will also be heavily diluted. USDA: Corn, soy crops slightly worse amid droughtCHAMPAIGN, Ill.

The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.100 percent, down from 0.110 percent last week. Another $28 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.135 percent, down from 0.145 percent last week. The three-month rate was the lowest since threemonth bills averaged 0.095 on July 23. The six-month rate was the lowest since these bills averaged 0.130 on June 4. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,997.47 while a six-month bill sold for $9,993.17. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.101 percent for the three-month bills and 0.137 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable-rate mortgages, was 0.17 percent last week, unchanged from the previous week. Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. stocks edged higher on a day marked by uncharacteristic quiet following a turbulent week. In the absence of major economic news, stocks were riding a tailwind of optimism from the most recent U.S. job numbers released last week and hope for more action by European authorities to address that regions debt crisis. On Monday, beleaguered stock trading company Knight Capital Group said it has lined up $400 million in financing that will allow the firm to continue to operate. Knight was fighting for survival after a disastrous software glitch in its systems sent the trading of dozens of stocks into chaos last week. Best Buys stock soared after its founder offered to buy the company. Markets fell the first four days of last week after investors were disappointed by the lack of specific action from central banks in Europe and the U.S. to support the economy. The Dow lost 197 points from Monday through Thursday. The Dow soared 217 points on Friday, however, following a surprisingly strong jobs report. The U.S. economy generated 163,000 jobs last month, the fastest pace since February and far more than economists were expecting. The upturn was seen as a sign that the U.S. may be resilient enough to pull out of a midyear slump and grow modestly, even as the rest of the world slows down. Investors drove markets higher Monday on hopes that the positive momentum will continue. Stock indexes also rose in Europe. Speculation has been building that the European Central Bank will support struggling countries like Spain and Italy by buying bonds issued by those governments. Germanys DAX and the CAC-40 in France both rose a little less than 1 percent. Spains IBEX 35 soared 4.4 percent despite a five-hour blackout from a technical problem that halted trading for much of the day. Mutual fund managers and hedge funds have sizable holdings in cash and they need to put those to work, said Richard Cripps, chief investment officer for Stifel Financial. Theres optimism over the progress made in Europe and also constructive news from the U.S. economy. Knight Capitals stock fell 98 cents, or 24 percent, to $3.07 Monday. Its down 70 percent since last Tuesday, the day before a software malfunction caused its computer systems to send erroneous orders flooding into the market. Knight said a group of investors agreed to buy $400 million of preferred stock that can be converted into a 73 percent stake in the firm. Knight takes orders for stock trades from brokers like TD Ameritrade and ETrade and banks. It then routes them to the exchanges where stocks are traded, like the New York Stock Exchange.

O PINION Page A12 TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 C onservatives worry that if Barack Obama is reelected, todays trillionplus federal deficits and ballooning national debt will continue to grow far into the future. Conservatives worry that if Obama is re-elected, the implementation of Obamacare will lay the foundation for a single-payer federal health care system. And conservatives worry that if the president is re-elected, the Justice Department will continue to crush state initiatives dealing with issues like immigration and voter ID; that the presidents ideology-driven green energy programs will lead to billions more in wasted spending; and that Obama will undermine desperately needed entitlement reform. All those are serious concerns. But perhaps the biggest conservative worry about a second Obama administration involves something far bigger: that after eight years of President Obama, more Americans will be dependent on government than ever before, with still more on track to become dependent in the future. Three examples: First, on July 12, the Obama administration issued a directive that could result in the removal of the work requirement from the landmark 1996 welfare reform law. The work requirement was the heart of that reform, and removing it would mean, in the words of conservative welfare expert Robert Rector, the end of welfare reform as we know it. It will likely also mean more people on welfare, should Barack Obama who has opposed welfare reform from the very beginning win a second term. Second, the Obama administration has made a far-reaching effort to increase the number of Americans on food stamps. As National Reviews Rich Lowry reported recently, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 17 million in 2000, to 30 million in 2008, to 46 million today. That increase is far more than is warranted by the economic downturn. The Obama administration wants that number to go even higher. To cite one example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture which now spends two-thirds of its budget on food stamps and other welfare programs created an aggressive Spanish-language outreach program to encourage immigrants, whether legal or not, to enroll for food stamps. (Lest anyone put all the blame on Obama, it should be said that former President George W. Bush also increased the number of Americans on food stamps, one of a number of Bush initiatives that made him unpopular with conservatives.) Finally, a key purpose of Obamacare is to increase the number of Americans covered by Medicaid, the federal health system for the poor. Obamacare expands Medicaid coverage to those with up to 133 percent of poverty-level income; for the first few years at least, all the extra cost will be paid by the federal government. More people on welfare, food stamps, Medicaid; that has been the trend under the first Obama administration and most certainly would be the trend perhaps an accelerated trend under a second Obama term. The economic downturn undoubtedly meant that more people would receive temporary government assistance, but the effect of Obamas policies has been to expand dependence far beyond that. A few months ago, conservatives laughed when the Obama campaign came up with The Life of Julia: A look at how President Obamas policies help one woman over her lifetime. Obama told the story of a fictional girl who received Head Start before kindergarten; got an Obamaprovided $10,000 tax credit to go to college; got a job as a Web designer; and enjoyed free contraceptives courtesy of Obamacare; got a government loan to start a small business; and ultimately headed into retirement and coverage by Social Security and Medicare. Conservatives scoffed at the whole thing. Julias world ... may be the most self-revealing parody of liberalism ever conceived, wrote columnist Charles Krauthammer, noting that Julia is swaddled and subsidized throughout her life by an all-giving government and the only time shes on her own is at her gravesite. But the Obama campaign is entirely serious about ensuring that Americans spend much of their lives receiving one government benefit or another. And if the president is reelected, Obamas expanded nanny state will be here to stay. As the administration well knows, once the government confers benefits on citizens, withdrawing those benefits can be enormously unpopular, a move few politicians will wish to risk. So in four more years, Barack Obama could make great strides toward the goal of making more and more Americans dependent on government. Yes, issues like debt and deficits are important. But dependency could be the biggest issue of all on the ballot this November.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner. That which deceives us and does us harm also undeceives and does us good. Joseph Roux, 1886 A more dependent nation? 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 ENDORSEMENT Joe Meek deserves second term I n the District 3 race for Citrus County Commission, incumbent Joe Meek faces businessman Shannon Heathcock in the Republican primary election. The winner of the primary will be elected to office. Heathcock, the owner of Dash Transport, is a veteran, high school graduate and is a strong supporter of youth sports. Hes an advocate for eliminating duplication in government services and opposes any functions of government that compete with the private sector. While he advocates eliminating government red tape, would like a policy encouraging veteran-owned businesses that could secure government contracts, and touts mobility fees as an option to replace transportation impact fees, he offers few specificson how to achieve those goals and to what degree they would positively impact the county. While incumbents have track records that can be dissected, incumbent Meek uses the commissions actions during his first term in office as the springboard to why he deserves another term. In the past four years, Meek has jumped into the role of county commissioner headfirst. His involvement and accomplishments are impressive. Meek, who has a B.S. degree from the University of South Florida and who owns JMC Development and Investment Corp. which provides capital and investment as well as assistance to build affordable homes points to these accomplishments of the commission as actions for voters to consider: Cutting $44 million from the county budget while maintaining services. Eliminating more than 100 government jobs. Lowering impact, building and redevelopment fees. Reducing discretionary spending on purchases and programs. As with Shannon Heathcock, Meek says hes seeking ways to further streamline government operations to increase efficiency. In his role as a commissioner and concerned citizen, Meek has served as president of the Economic Development Council, advocating the need for diversification of the local economy. He is chairman of the Citrus, Levy, Marion Workforce Board; a member of the Value Adjustment Board, the Council of Governors of the Tampa Bay Partnership, the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization, the Chamber of Commerce, YMCA Advisory Board, We Care Food Pantry and is a YMCA Capital Campaign Board member. As a young father and native Citrus Countian, Joe Meek seeks to foster a community that will be attractive to todays youths, causing them to consider pursuing their careers in the county they know as home. Shannon Heathcock seems earnest in his desire to serve the citizens of Citrus County, but it is Joe Meek who has a clear track record of contributing to the betterment of the community as a citizen and as an official. Voters are encouraged to elect Joe Meek to a second term as the District 3 Citrus County commissioner. THE ISSUE: Citrus County Commission District 3. OUR OPINION: Re-elect incumbent Joe Meek.

COMMENTS will be edited for length, libel, personal or political attacks and good taste. Editors will cut libelous material. OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. Byron York OTHER VOICES C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Endorsement REBUTTAL I would like to thank the Chronicle for the opportunity to respond to its endorsement of the incumbent in the County Commission District 1 race where I am the challenger. The basis of the endorsement is rather simple and straightforward, so my response will be as well. This race is about a clear difference between two candidates. The Chronicle said, We endorse Damato because we believe county government has made good progress over the past four years. The editorial Board also said, Damato has done a good job during his eight years on the commission. My response is if you truly believe that, then you should vote for the incumbent. But if you do not agree with those statements, then I would like to suggest me, Ron Kitchen, as someone with a positive proactive plan and the demonstrated experience to help turn around the current situation of Citrus County. The Chronicle said the following of my campaign: Ron Kitchen, a veteran city official from Crystal River who also has served as mayor, is a serious candidate. He has articulated a strong position in the campaign and does a very good job of connecting with disaffected voters Kitchen is critical of county government and promises change. He favors across-the-board budget cuts and has found support from those critical of Damatos actions on such issues as Port Citrus, Meadowcrest and Ottawa. Over the past two years, I have listened to people all over the county. Most people I have talked with believe decisions are made before the public is heard. Most believe what the incumbent calls accomplishments were done deals and the outcome was determined well in advance and benefited only a few powerful friends and supporters. Also I have found that most believe that deficit spending is out of control and the incumbent has no plan to stop it, other than tax increases. What I am asking citizens to do is very direct; You be the judge. Please go to the Supervisor of Elections website at www.votecitrus.com and look at my resume and background and that of the incumbent. Then compare and you, not the Chronicle make the decision on who you think would make the best commissioner for the next four years. During your deliberations, please consider the following: The county has not had a balanced budget in the past four years and even this year is continuing to pay the bills by taking from trust funds and reserves with no plan to cut the spending. In just the past three years spending exceeded revenues by over $30 million. Two million dollars was borrowed and added to the debt to renovate a building in Meadowcrest that the county does not own, for a need that is questionable. Government fund debt is up 37 percent in the last four years and since 2004 the population of the county has increased by 12 percent, but the budget has increased by over 100 percent. If you think this is a good job and wish to continue in this direction, then the incumbent is your man. If, on the other hand, you would like someone who: asks the hard questions and listens with an open mind to all points of view; someone who has a proven record of working with other elected officials to reduce spending and produce positive results; and someone who will always treat you as the purpose of his work and not an interruption of it, then I believe I am your choice. I would appreciate your vote for me, Ron Kitchen ,in this election. The choice in this race is very clear and most important the choice is yours. Ronald Kitchen Jr. Republican candidate County Commission District 1 Ron Kitchen: You be the judge Great publicity On Wednesday, Aug. 1, several of my friends and I went to Spring Hill to have lunch at the Chick-fil-A on Cortez Boulevard. What a sight to behold! There was a very long line of autos in the drive-through line, so many we decided to go inside. We had to park across the street in the mall parking lot and walk over. This too was a very long line, and we didnt realize how long until after we finally got inside the building, where the line zigzagged around the tables. Credit goes to those who work there. They had their hands full, and then some. Never without a smile and a word of welcome. Everyone was enjoying the moment, talking about everything from the reason so many of us were there to the upcoming elections in November. Military personnel, firefighters, veterans and We the People had a great lunch together. The food was delicious, the service good, and the reason excellent. That evening in Tampa, I was approached by several others who told me about their experiences in Tampa and how wonderful the turnout was. Dan Cathy could not have paid enough for the great publicity he is receiving from this event. Robert H.

Rusnak sensible I am responding to your editorial of July 22, regarding the county budget. I am afraid that I do not understand how our county commissioners can go happily along without heeding all the warnings that are before them. We cannot keep raiding our reserves and legal funds, because they too will run dry. And what if we need them? The one answer I see is to elect Teddi Rusnak. She is the one person, if elected to the commission, who can set our financial sails on the right course. If you doubt what I am saying I would encourage you to go to teddi4commish.com and listen to what she has to say about zero-based budgets. She makes a great deal of sense, so I urge you to listen to what she says and then on the 14th vote for Teddi Rusnak, District 5, for commissioner.Hedda Smith Lecanto Kudos to Himmel At times we have all encountered frustrating moments when attempting to contact various offices or companies only to find we are placed on hold and compelled to listen to music they have selected for their phone system. If you want to start your day with a pleasant experience, by all means contact the main office, or any school, in the Citrus County School District and you will have the distinct pleasure of listening to the classic God Bless America while holding for your party to answer. You will definitely feel a sense of unity and be reminded of how fortunate we are to live in this free society, the United States of America. Kudos to our superintendent of schools, Sam Himmel, for implementing this practice in our school district and hopefully every school district across America will adopt the same practice. Arnold Virgilio Vietnam veteran Mary-Ann Virgilio Inverness Burch inspires It is our pleasure to endorse Chief Steven Burch as your best choice for Citrus County sheriff. Although each of the Republican candidates brings their own skill set of talent and experience, Chief Burch possesses the required qualifications that are needed to perform in this highly specialized position. He served as the police chief of the Crystal River Police Department (CRPD) from Aug. 30, 2004, to Jan. 31, 2008, coming to our city with 24 years of service with the Clearwater Police Department, where he served as a lieutenant and Traffic Section commander. His arrival during one of the worst hurricane seasons in our history was Crystal Rivers first opportunity to observe his exquisite leadership abilities. His level of dedication to the department, and to the citizens they served, was commendable, demonstrating a commitment to community policing, improved officer training, and public safety. He was a role model in our city, working to improve the lives of citizens in all socioeconomic classes, and sought grants and innovative methods to accomplish goals with minimal financial impact to our budget. His administrative abilities were also utilized outside of his own department, having been appointed to act as city manager in the absence of our administrator, and served on several local and statewide committees. During his tenure we saw increases in arrests, citations and forfeitures, which were accompanied with corresponding reductions in crime and alcohol related crashes. Chief Burch was an inspiration to the department and made improvements in training, equipment and policies. He brings to the table the education, experience and dedication to the integrity of the law enforcement career that is needed in Citrus County. Please give him serious consideration as you choose who you will vote for in this primary.John and Gail Kostelnick Crystal River Why Steve Burch? I have been a friend of Steven Burch for some time now and have grown to know him on both a professional and personal level, and it is with this understanding that I can honestly say that he is the right person for the job of sheriff of Citrus County. Not only does Mr. Burch have all the necessary requirements for this position, but he has a tremendous desire to serve the people of Citrus County and I am confident that he will be accessible to the people. While working with Steven Burch as a private investigator for Quick Search Investigations, he has proven to be dependable, hard working, knowledgeable, honest, and passionate, and these are but a few of the many words that can be used to describe him. I completely support Steve Burch and the platform in which he is running. The citizens of Citrus County deserve better, and Mr. Burch is that man. Luis Olivero Hernando Support Damato As a longtime resident and retired business owner here in Citrus County, I would like to say I am proud to call Dennis Damato my friend. I am also pleased to have him represent me as my commissioner. Over the years I have worked with Mr. Damato on civic projects and boards. I always had a great appreciation for his dedication, input and willingness to get the job done. His approach as our commissioner will assure him of my vote. I would ask you, too, to join me in his re-election. Ron Dillon Sr. Pine Ridge Faith in Kitchen The primary election is nearing and District 1 of the County Commission will be decided at the primary this year. After attending forums and listening to the candidates, plus looking back at their past county activity history, I feel strongly that Ron Kitchen is the only candidate that truly has county constituents foremost in his mind. He, in my opinion, is the only candidate of District 1 who will go into a debate with an open mind and listen, repeat, listen to the people before casting his vote. That is refreshing. I became a resident of Crystal River in 1999, becoming active in city and county politics almost right away because of issues in the city. Many issues were fiercely fought at that time as the city was so divided. Similar to the county today. Mr. Kitchen always listened to the people, giving them a chance to air their views before commenting. In the beginning, as mayor, he could not vote, but was given that power later on in a referendum, proving that the people had faith in him. This is exactly what our county needs now. Someone who will not only listen but actually hear our opinions. The people care about the budget, the port, Meadowcrest, Ottawa, the sewers, the CCSO budget and on and on. We want to not only be heard, but listened to also. I guarantee that Ron Kitchen will not be looking at the ceiling, reading a paper or in general looking bored as we, the public, speak. He will hear you. As I said, that will be refreshing. If you want to be heard and listened to, then vote for Ron Kitchen for District 1. Gail Jannarone Crystal River Adams best choice In year 2000, three Republicans ran in the Citrus County Commission District 5 race: Millie King, Scott Adams, and Jim McIntosh. Adams ran a clean and smart campaign, and he won the primary. At that time, winning required a 50 percent-plus-one tally, and Adams lost to King in a runoff. Though Adams was somewhat of a diamond in the rough in 2000, looking back, I now believe he was the best candidate running in District 5, and that includes the Democrat who eventually won the seat. In his youth, Adams admits to having been a bit of a scalawag. He was nothing worse, and records show that; moreover, hes more than a decade past his devil-may-care stage. Thus, I am endorsing businessman Scott Adams for Citrus County Commission District 5. Its not because his time has come, but because its our time to elect a type other than what we have had for too many years. Believe me: Scott Adams is a credible, common sense guy who, as commissioner, will stand up against the entrenched, highly predisposed status quo. Please vote for Scott Adams. James M. McIntosh Lecanto Scott honest As a neighbor to Scott Adams, I have found Scott to be honest, generous, and a man whose word truly is his bond. Citrus County born, Mr. Adams, or Scott, as he prefers to be called, has started and operated several businesses in the area, created jobs, written paychecks, and has learned the value of a dollar in the process. He is not afraid to negotiate or litigate to protect Citrus County residents from unnecessary taxes or foolishly spent tax revenues. His goal is to make life better for all of us. I am voting for Scott Adams and I hope you will too.

The policy is also responsible for increased food prices and shortages. Now that we have a drought, our food prices and gasoline prices will go through the roof. The government will again do their usual dance against oil companies why we shouldnt drill for more oil and refusing to build the Canadian pipeline. Just more lies to the American people to control their own poorly thought out green agenda, at a very high cost to the taxpayer.Claude Strass Homosassa LETTERS to the Editor

Auction accident Associated Press Officers discuss the case of a freak accident Monday at the Kalona Sale Barn, in Kalona, Iowa. A pickup truck used to conduct a busy Iowa livestock auction sped into a crowd without warning Monday, killing one person and injuring at least five others, authorities said. Joplin mosque razed in blaze JOPLIN, Mo. Investigators said it will take a few days to determine if the fire that destroyed a southwest Missouri mosque was arson. Michael Kaste, special agent in charge of the FBIs Kansas City office, said Monday the agency is taking the investigation into the fire at the Islamic Society of Joplin very seriously. He said the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms together have about 30 investigators working to determine the cause. No injuries were reported. Jasper County officials said patrols at the mosque had been stepped up since a July 4 fire there was determined to be arson. The FBI has released a video of a man appearing to set the July 4 fire and is offering a $15,000 reward in that case. Remembrances Associated Press Israeli Olympic judo silver medalist Yael Arad lights one of 11 candles Monday at Guildhall in London in memory of those killed during a terrorist attack at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, where 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team were killed. Japan marks date of Hiroshima bombingTOKYO Japan marked the 67th anniversary of the worlds first atomic bomb attack with a ceremony Monday that was attended by a grandson of Harry Truman, the U.S. president who ordered the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. About 50,000 people gathered in Hiroshimas peace park near the epicenter of the 1945 blast that destroyed most of the city and killed as many as 140,000 people. A second atomic bombing Aug. 9 that year in Nagasaki killed tens of thousands more and prompted Japan to surrender to the World War II Allies. The ceremony, attended by representatives of about 70 countries, began with the ringingof a temple bell and a moment of silence. Flowers were placed before Hiroshimas eternal flame, which is the parks centerpiece. Trumans grandson, Clifton Truman Daniel, and the grandson of a radar operator who was on both of the planes that dropped the atomic bombs, joined in the memorial. Ari Besers grandfather, Jacob Beser, was the only person who directly took part in both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.

Associated PressOAK CREEK, Wis. Before he strode into a Sikh temple with a 9mm handgun and multiple magazines of ammunition, Wade Michael Page played in white supremacist heavy metal bands with names such as Definite Hate and End Apathy. The bald, heavily tattooed bassist was a 40-year-old Army veteran who trained in psychological warfare before he was demoted and discharged more than a decade ago. A day after he killed six worshippers at the suburban Milwaukee temple, fragments of Pages life emerged in public records and interviews. But his motive was still largely a mystery. So far, no hatefilled manifesto has emerged, nor any angry blog or ranting Facebook entries to explain the attack. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards suggested Monday that investigators might never know for certain why the lone attacker targeted a temple full of strangers. We have a lot of information to decipher, to put it all together before we can positively tell you what that motive is if we can determine that, Edwards said. Page, who was shot to death by police, joined the Army in 1992 and was discharged in 1998. Page wrote frequently on white supremacistwebsites, describing himself as a member of the Hammerskins Nation, a skinhead group rooted in Texas that has offshoots in Australia and Canada, according to the SITE Monitoring Service, a Maryland-based private intelligence firm that searches the Internet for terrorist and other extremist activity. In November, Page challenged a poster who indicated he would leave the U.S. if Herman Cain were elected president, writing in reply, Stand and fight, dont run. In an April message, Page said: Passive submission is indirect support to the oppressors. Stand up for yourself and live the 14 words, a reference to a common whitesupremacist mantra. Page joined the military in Milwaukee in 1992 and was a repairman for the Hawk missile system before switching jobs to become one of the Armys psychological operations specialists assigned to a battalion at Fort Bragg, N.C. He never deployed overseas in that role, Army spokesman George Wright said. Page was demoted in June 1998 for getting drunk while on duty and going AWOL, two defense officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Page entered the temple as several dozen people prepared for Sunday services. He opened fire without saying a word. The president of the temple died defending the house of worship he founded. Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, managed to find a simple butter knife in the temple and attempted to stab the gunman before being shot twice, his son said Monday. Amardeep Singh Kaleka said FBI agents hugged him, shook his hand and told him his father was a hero. Whatever time he spent in that struggle gave the women time to get cover, he said. Federal officials said the gun used in the attack had been legally purchased. Page was issued five pistol-purchase permits in 2008 in North Carolina, paying a $5 fee for each. Gunman in temple attack was white supremacist Wade Page NEW DELHI The Sikh faith has roughly 27 million followers worldwide, and the vast majority live in India. Here are some answers about the religion and its history. Q: How did the Sikh religion originate? A: It was founded in 1469 by Guru Nanak, who preached monotheism and equality, in reaction to the Hindu caste system. Q: What is Sikhs historical role in India? A: Sikhs at one point controlled a powerful kingdom in what is today western India and parts of Pakistan. The British captured it in a bloody war in 1849. Around that time, the British army formed a Sikh regiment that still exists in the Indian military. Though Sikhs comprise about 2 percent of Indias population, they make up a far higher percentage of the military. Q: What are the customs of their faith? A: Traditional Sikh men dont cut their beards or their hair. Most cover their heads in yards of cloth elaborately wrapped into a turban. Sikh men all take the name Singh, meaning lion. Q: What is their current role? A: Sikhs hold some of Indias most important positions. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Army Chief Gen. Bikram Singh, and Montek Singh Ahluwalia, head of the financially powerful planning commission, are all Sikh. Their temples, or gurdwaras, often run free kitchens giving food to all comers. They are sometimes found on street corners during hot summer months handing out cool drinks of ice, milk and rosewater to passing drivers. Q: What has been the reaction in India to the shooting at a U.S. temple? A: Giani Gurbachan Singh, the Sikhs highest-ranking priest, called the shooting a security lapse by the U.S. government and called on worshippers in the United States to adopt all possible security measures at their temples, including closed-circuit cameras. Associated Press Sikhism: A primer Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. NASA celebrated the precision landing of a rover on Mars and marveled over the missions first photographs Monday grainy, black-and-white images of Martian gravel, a mountain at sunset and, most exciting of all, the spacecrafts white-knuckle plunge through the Red Planets atmosphere. Curiosity, a roving laboratory the size of a compact car, landed right on target late Sunday night after an eight-month, 352-millionmile journey. Cheers and applause echoed through NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and engineers hugged, highfived and thrust their fists in the air after signals from space indicated the vehicle survivedthe harrowing descent through Mars pinkish atmosphere. Everybody in the morning should be sticking their chests out and saying, Thats my rover on Mars, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said on NASA TV. Extraordinary efforts were needed for the landing because the rover weighs one ton, and the thin Martian atmosphere offers little friction to slow a spacecraft down. Curiosity had to go from 13,000 mph to zero in seven minutes, unfurling a parachute, then firing rockets to brake. In a Hollywood-style finish, cables delicately lowered it to the ground at 2 mph. We have ended one phase of the mission much to our enjoyment, mission manager Mike Watkins said. But another part has just begun. The nuclear-powered Curiosity will dig into the Martian surface to analyze whats there and hunt for some of the molecular building blocks of life, including carbon. It wont start moving for a couple of weeks, because all the systems on the $2.5 billion rover have to be checked out. Color photos, panoramas and video will start coming in the next few days. But first NASA had to use tiny cameras designed to spot hazards in front of Curiositys wheels. So early images of gravel and shadows abounded. A high-resolution camera on the orbiting 7-yearold Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, flying 211 miles directly above the plummeting Curiosity, snapped a photo of the rover dangling from its parachute about a minute from touchdown. The parachutes design can be made out in the photo.

SPORTS BRIEFS Jets players involved in scuffle during practice CORTLAND, N.Y. Tebowmania turned into Wrestlemania for the New York Jets during one big training camp throwdown. About 20 players were involved in a brief brawl during a chippy practice Monday after running back Joe McKnight and safety DAnton Lynn tangled after a play. Lynn, the son of Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn, shoved McKnight out of bounds after a swing pass from Greg McElroy. An angry McKnight then fired the football at Lynn. That was a first, Lynn said. Thats never happened to me before, so I lost my temper for a second. The two got into it, with McKnight charging Lynn and throwing a punch that didnt land. If youre fighting, I mean, are you going to just love-tap him? McKnight said. I mean, youre going to try to hit him. Its a fight. Offensive and defensive players ran over to the two and a pileup ensued, with players rolling through advertisement placards and into an area where reporters were watching. Several reporters scattered as the players jumped on each other and wrestled a few feet in front of a barricade where fans sit. Coach Rex Ryan, along with several players, including Tim Tebow, ran over to break up the melee by pulling players off the pile. Meanwhile, several other players jokingly acted as if they were taking swings at each other. McKnight said Ryan told him: Keep playing hard. It all lasted about a minute, and the Jets (No. 17 in the AP Pro32) went back to team drills as if nothing happened with none of the players suffering any apparent injuries. The two said they would talk to each other, and things would be smoothed over.Seminoles start practice with Penn State transfer TALLAHASSEE Florida State started preseason practice Monday with one big addition and an electrifying loss. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said offering a scholarship to 6-foot-4, 252-pound tight end Kevin Haplea, a Penn State transfer, was an easy decision and that he had plenty of candidates to replace speedy, shifty senior Greg Reid. Fisher, who said he sensed a quiet confidence among his players, last week dismissed Reid for violating team rules three weeks after he was charged with marijuana possession. Reid not only started at cornerback, but had emerged as Florida States best punt returner since Deion Sanders.

After each driver took their shot at the time clock, Jeremy Sharrone (32) showed he knew the fast way around, taking top qualifier honors with a fast lap of 16.06 seconds. Jeff Eberly (01) was the second fastest qualifier with a lap of 16.18 seconds, and Ashlee Williamson third with a 16.33-second lap. Once qualifying was over, the drivers starting positions were in the hands of the fans the starting field invert would be up to the fans. To no ones surprise, the fans wanted a full-field invert, leaving Sharrone starting in the very last row. Jeff Eisenhauer (73) benefitted from the inversion, starting on the pole position alongside Matthew Jenkins (10), who was making his first start of 2012. Eisenhauer jumped out to an early lead, but third starter Shawn Jenkins (43) made his way to the top spot by lap 3. The first caution flew at lap 16 for the stalled car of Matthew Jenkins, and reset the field for a restart. Shawn Jenkins scooted away on the restart, but behind him the top three qualifiers were coming fast. Lap 18 saw Jenkins out front, but Eberly had made his way to the third position. Lap 28 saw the second and final caution of the night for a spin involving Jesse Mallory (50). Jenkins had his hands full, as the top three qualifiers were right on his tail for the restart. Once back to green, Sharrone made his way by Eberly and Williamson to take the second spot with only 12 laps left. Sharrone set his sights on the leader Jenkins, and went to work. Sharrone looked for racing room with the leader, and finally found a hole on lap 43, moving to the lead. Eberly followed Sharrone by Jenkins, and tried to hang with the new leader.

US racks up wins Durant, US men roll over Argentina 126-97 Associated PressLONDON Kevin Durant shot the U.S. mens Olympic basketball team out of trouble, and right into the top seed in their group. Durant scored 17 of his 28 points during the Americans explosive 42point third quarter, turning a onepoint game into a blowout that sent the U.S. soaring into the quarterfinals with a 126-97 victory over Argentina on Monday night. The NBA scoring champion matched the Argentines total in the period, going 5 of 6 from 3-point range, the last one from beyond 25 feet. The Americans didnt stop shooting and scoring until Carmelo Anthony made a 3-pointer in the final second of the quarter while taking what he and the U.S. bench right behind him felt was a cheap shot from Argentinas Facundo Campazzo, setting off an exchange of words and technical fouls. The Americans (5-0) will play Australia (3-2) in a quarterfinal game Wednesday. LeBron James added 18 points, getting the Americans first seven of the third quarter before Durant took over. Chris Paul finished with 17. Two nights after surviving their first real test in a 99-94 victory over Lithuania, it seemed the Americans might be headed for another tight finish. Argentina shot 56 percent in the first half and the U.S. led just 60-59. Minutes later, it was effectively over. Durants 3-pointer after James surge gave the U.S. 10 points in 2:10 of the second half, and he made back-to-back 3s midway through the Suhr brings home pole vault gold for US Associated PressLONDON Jenn Suhr walked with a purpose over to the stands to see her husband, who gingerly wrapped an American flag around her shoulders while she sobbed into his chest. Yes, theyve come a long way together. From training in a pair of huts connected together to form a jumping pit to winning an Olympic gold medal on her sports grandest stage. Suhr, who won the silver medal in Beijing and has since fought through an Achilles injury and a long, mysterious, sometimes-debilitating illness that turned out to be a gluten allergy, got the Olympic gold she needed to round out her resume. Its very emotional, she said. Its something you work very hard for for four years. And heartbreak and joy and some more heartbreak. To overcome it and come out on top, is something that whenever I thought of, I started crying. I knew it was going to be emotional. She vaulted 15 feet, 7 inches to defeat Cubas Yarisley Silva, who cleared the same height but lost on a tiebreaker because she had one more miss in the competition. Suhr also beat twotime defending Olympic champion Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia, who failed to become the first woman to win the same individual track and field event at three consecutive Olympics. Isinbayeva settled for bronze with a vault of 15-5 (4.70). To beat Yelena and her resume and her record, its an honor, Suhr said. Thats the only thing I can say, to have someone so good in the field and come out on top, it really is an honor. Its a special title in that situation.

Page B2 TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 Associated PressMANCHESTER, England The U.S. womens soccer team is back in the Olympic gold medal match after a wild come-from-behind 4-3 win over Canada with a goal in the final minute of extra time. Now the Americans will be out to avenge one of the most gut-wrenching losses in the programs history. Alex Morgan gave the U.S. its first lead of the night in the third minute of injury time Monday, completing the win over Canada in the Olympic semifinals at Old Trafford. Morgans 6-yard header, on a long cross from Heather OReilly, looped high into the net over goalkeeper Erin McLeod for the winning goal. Megan Rapinoe scored in the 54th and 70th minutes, and Abby Wambach in the 80th for the U.S. The Americans overcame three one-goal deficits, all due to a hat trick from Canadas Christine Sinclair, who scored in the 22nd, 67th and 73rd minutes. In many ways the win was reminiscent of the landmark comeback victory against Brazil in last years World Cup. Even when they scored their third goal, there was something in me that knew that we had more, that we could give more, Wambach said. I dont know what that means, quite honestly. I dont know if its just confidence until the end, but this team has a belief in itself, even when the going gets rough. Next comes the game the U.S. players have been eyeing for more than a year, a rematch with Japan on Thursday at Wembley Stadium with gold on the line. The top-ranked Americans lost to Japan on penalty kicks in the World Cup final last summer, a stunning blow that became a source of motivation as the players prepared for this years Olympics. This is redemption for us, midfielder Carli Lloyd said. We know how hard it was for us after that game. It hurt us for a really long time. The U.S. team has played in the title match in every Summer Games since womens soccer was introduced in Atlanta in 1996, winning the gold in 1996, 2004 and 2008 and the silver in 2000. The Americans advanced by continuing their dominance of the neighbor to the north, extending their unbeaten streak against Canada to 27 games (23-0-4). The Americans lead the alltime series 44-3-5, the last loss coming at the Algarve Cup in 2001. But it wasnt easy. Sinclair was an imposing force, scoring her 141st, 142nd and 143rd goals in international play. Shes now even with Wambach for No. 2 on the alltime list, both chasing Mia Hamms world record of 158. Canada coach John Herdman said before the game that the run of futility against the Americans was on the minds of his players, and he addressed it with them in the run-up to the match. He also injected some pregame intrigue by accusing the Americans of using highly illegal, overly physical tactics on free kicks and corner kicks. Certainly, his team gave one of its most spirited efforts on the biggest stage ever for a game between the neighboring rivals, scoring the most goals the U.S. has allowed since a 5-4 win by the Americans over Australia in May 2008. The game included a pair of U.S. goals resulting from moments rarely seen in soccer, including a corner kick that curled in for a goal and a goalkeeper whistled for holding the ball too long. Canada coach John Herdman felt the goalkeeper call was a miscarriage of justice, and he also felt referee Christiana Pedersen of Norway missed a hand ball in the penalty in front of the U.S. goal.

Olympic BRIEFS American fighter disqualified for doping American judo fighter Nick Delpopolo apologized after he was expelled from the Olympics for doping, blaming the disqualification on his unintentional consumption of something baked with marijuana. Delpopolo is the first of the 10,500 London Games athletes to fail an in-competition doping test. The International Olympic Committee said it disqualified him from the 73-kilogram class, where he placed seventh. He beat opponents from Hong Kong and Belgium, then lost to fighters from South Korea and Mongolia. The IOC added that he tested positive for metabolites of cannabis after competing on July 30, the day of his event. The judoka from Westfield, N.J., said his positive test was caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana before he left for the Olympics. I apologize to U.S. Olympic Committee, to my teammates, and to my fans, and I am embarrassed by this mistake, he said in a statement released by the USOC. I look forward to representing my country in the future, and will rededicate myself to being the best judo athlete that I can be. Defending Olympic 50K race walk champion Alex Schwazer also tested positive for doping, and the Italian Olympic Committee said he had been removed from the team. Schwazer was scheduled to compete on Saturday.Russias Mustafina rallies to win even bars In gymnastics, Gabby Douglas was nowhere near the podium this time. The allaround champion, who also helped the United States to team gold, finished last on uneven bars. Russias Aliya Mustafina rallied to the victory. Toward the end of the Olympics, you get mentally and physically tired and youre just like drained, Douglas said. I tried to fight through it as much as I could. Mustafina, who injured her left knee in April 2011, gave Russia its first gold in womens gymnastics in London. This completed her medal set following a silver in team competition and bronze in all-around. Arthur Zanetti finished first on still rings for Brazils first gymnastics medal, and Yang Hakseon of South Korea added the gold on vault to his world title. US gets first two boxing medals Flyweight Marlen Esparza and middleweight Claressa Shields clinched the U.S. teams first two boxing medals. Esparza patiently outboxed Venezuelas Karlha Magliocco, and the 17-year-old Shields closed furiously in an 18-14 win over Swedish veteran Anna Laurell. The Americans were in awe of the decibel-busting atmosphere in the Olympic debut of womens boxing. I had to keep myself calm out there, said Shields, who somehow managed to hear instructions her personal coach, Jason Crutchfield, shouted from the stands. I didnt want to be overanxious, but it was kind of like, Wow. Ireland lightweight Katie Taylor and top-seeded flyweight Ren Cancan of China also won. The rest of the Olympic action Monday: VOLLEYBALL David McKienzie scored 17 points and the defending champion U.S. mens team clinched a top tournament seed with a win over Tunisia. Sean Rooney added 12 points in the 25-15, 25-19, 2519 win, which set up a quarterfinal against Italy on Wednesday. The United States was coming off a five-set loss to Russia, which ended an 11-match winning streak in Olympic play, dating to the Americans undefeated march to the gold medal at the Beijing Games. SHOOTING Matt Emmons finally made his way to the podium in the 50meter three-position rifle event at the Olympics. The U.S. marksman held on to win the bronze medal at the London Games. Italys Niccolo Campriani set Olympic marks of 1,180 in qualifying and 1,278.5 for his overall score, easily topping silver medalist Kim Jong-hyun of South Korea. Emmons won a 50-meter prone rifle gold at Athens and silver in the event at Beijing, but is best-known for his Olympic three-position misfortunes. In mens trap, Giovanni Cernogoraz of Croatia beat world champion Massimo Fabbrizi in a shoot-off for the gold. Kuwaits Fehaid Aldeehani won another shoot-off for the bronze. CYCLING Jason Kenny won the sprint for Britains fifth gold medal out of a possible seven in track cycling. Kenny earned his first win against three-time world champion Gregory Bauge of France. The 24-year-old from Bolton, outside Manchester, made good on the British teams decision to enter him in the event instead of defending champion Chris Hoy.

Braves 6, Phillies 1 Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Ben Sheets pitched into the eighth inning and Jason Heyward homered to lead the streaking Atlanta Braves to a 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. Sheets (4-1) had his longest outing since joining Atlantas rotation on July 15 after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He allowed one run on seven hits while walking one and striking out none. Freddie Freeman drove in two runs, Brian McCann went 2 for 3 with an RBI and Dan Uggla had a pair of hits for the Braves, who have won 11 of 13 overall. AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 7, Yankees 2DETROIT Justin Verlander matched a career high with 14 strikeouts and got home-run support from Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, leading the Detroit Tigers over the New York Yankees 7-2 Monday night. Verlander (12-7) threw 132 pitches, his most in a regularseason game, and sent the Tigers to their fifth straight win. Verlander gave up two unearned runs after his fielding error extended the fifth inning. The AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner wound up going eight innings, and got a huge roar when he left the mound. Detroit has won 19 of its last 23 home games. The AL Eastleading Yankees have lost 11 of 17 overall. Twins 14, Indians 3CLEVELAND Justin Morneau homered twice and drove in four runs, Joe Mauer had three RBIs and Ryan Doumit hit a three-run homer to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 14-3 victory over Cleveland on Monday night, the Indians 10th straight loss. Ben Revere had four of the Twins 14 hits and extended his hitting streak to 20 games while Josh Willingham hit his 29th homer, matching his career-high. The Twins, who homered three times in their 10-run second, fell one run shy of their biggest inning in franchise history. Minnesota has scored 11 runs in an inning four times. Red Sox 9, Rangers 2 BOSTON Dustin Pedroia had three of Bostons eight doubles, Aaron Cook pitched seven solid innings and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Monday night. Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford each doubled twice and Adrian Gonzalez once as the Red Sox increased their major league high to 248 doubles, 35 more than the secondplace New York Mets. And Crawford and Gonzalez drove in three runs each. Cook (3-5) regained control of his sinker after going 0-4 in his previous five starts. Of his 21 outs, 15 came on groundballs. He allowed six hits, walked two and struck out one. Orioles 3, Mariners 1 BALTIMORE Chris Tillman took a three-hit shutout into the eighth inning to extend a run of successful starts by Baltimore pitchers, and the Orioles beat Jason Vargas and the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Monday night. Nick Markakis homered and Mark Reynolds had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who have won six of eight to improve to 58-51. Baltimore didnt record its 58th win last year until Sept. 9, one day after its 85th defeat. Tillman (5-1) gave up one run, five hits and a walk in 7 1-3 innings. In two outings against Seattle this year, the right-hander has allowed one earned run in 15 2-3 innings. NATIONAL LEAGUE Pirates 4, Diamondbacks 0 PITTSBURGH Erik Bedard allowed two hits over seven innings Monday night and the Pittsburgh Pirates opened a season-long 11-game homestand with a 4-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Bedard did not walk a batter and faced just one over the minimum, striking out five. He retired 17 in a row until his final batter, Paul Goldschmidt, singled. Goldschmidt was thrown out at second base trying to stretch the hit by left fielder Starling Marte to end the seventh. Bedard (6-12) leads the majors in losses but lowered his home ERA to 2.38. Pittsburgh has won 23 of its past 29 games at PNC Park. Jason Grilli and Chad Qualls each worked a perfect inning to preserve the shutout, the Pirates sixth this season and second in the past week. period to make it 85-68. He nailed consecutive 3s again later in the quarter, the latter from beyond the hash line, a distance that most players would never consider pulling up from. Durant, who holds the U.S. scoring record with 38 points in the 2010 world championship, might have threatened that if not for the lopsided score. He checked out for good about a minute into the fourth quarter. Manu Ginobili scored 16 points for Argentina (3-2), which would have won Group B via tiebreaker if it had blown out the U.S. Instead, it finished third and will face Brazil in the quarterfinals. A crowd featuring former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and ex-heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield was treated to an offensive show in the first half with little more defense than the NBA All-Star game. A basket on one end was answered quickly by a shot on the other in what was shaping up as a thriller between the last two Olympic champions. But the U.S. simply has too much offense, even if the defense could use some tightening up. In the end, Sharrone was too strong on this night, and went on to take the victory in the classs biggest race of the season. Eberly came home a strong second, with Williamson moving by Jenkins for third at the checkers. Sharrone pocketed $600 for his efforts, taking the win, fast-qualifier and hardcharger awards for the night. Thirteen Open-Wheel Modifieds had one of the wildest finishes of the season in their 40-lap feature event. Last years division champion Doug Miller (53) benefitted from the four-row inversion, and jumped to the lead from his pole position at the drop of the green. Outside pole-sitter Josh Todd (289) slid into the second spot, with third starter Richie Smith (42) on their tails. The first caution was waved at lap 8 for contact between Steven Hise (2) and Jason Garver (27). Once reset, the field came to green with the top three drivers resuming their battle. Smith wasted no time going to work on Todd for second, making the outside pass to take the second position. Lap 17 saw the next caution for contact between Gator Hise (43) and Wayne Morris (198). Hise expressed his displeasure by running into Morris under caution, which resulted in a black flag for Hise. Miller had his hands full on the restart, with Smith right in his tire tracks at the drop of the green. Smith finally found the room he needed on lap 29, moving by Miller for the lead. The last caution of the night came on lap 34, bunching up the field for a six-lap sprint to the checkers. Smith tried to run away on the restart, but Miller was right on his bumper trying to retake the lead. As the cars took the white flag, the aggression ramped up. As Smith came off of turn 4 coming to the checkered flag, Miller made contact with the rear of his car, turning the leader sideways. Smith collected his car and stood on the gas, sliding sideways across the finish line to take his first feature win of 2012. The chaos sent cars in every direction coming to the checkered flag. Millers car became airborne, landing on top of Smith and Steven Hise in a mangled mess of sheet metal in turn 1. Jarrett Snowden (4) found a way through the smoke and spinning cars to take the third spot as the checkers fell. Heat race winners were brothers Steven and Gator Hise. Twenty Sportsman cars took the green for their 25lap feature, with Ernie Reed (55) and Andy Nichols (66) on the front row. Reed jumped out to the early lead before a lap 2 caution for contact between Nichols and George Gorham Jr. (10) sent Nichols for a spin. Gorham Jr. took blame for the incident, sending himself to the rear, and Nichols back to his position. Reed lead on the restart, but caution flew again just as the field came up to speed. Reed went go for a spin after contact from the second-running Brandon Morris (56). Morris took blame for the incident, sending himself to the rear, and Reed back to the lead for the restart. Once everything settled down, the drivers got down to racing. Reed continued to lead until lap 9, when eighth-place starter Aaron Williamson (13) took over the top spot from Reed. Williamson would survive one more late-race caution to record his second feature win of 2012. Coming home a strong second was Cody Johnson (90) with one of his best runs of the season, and Andy Nichols rounded out the top 3.

Associated PressSALZBURG, Austria Operagoers attending Salzburg Festivals new production of Puccinis La Boheme expected the worst when the man with the microphone stepped out, shortly before show-time but then came the good news. Piotr Beczala, who had received rave reviews at last weeks premiere, had lost his voice, they were told, but instead of the show being stripped of its star performer, his voice would be replaced by one of the hottest names in opera today. Enter Jonas Kaufmann, and Saturdays audience settled into a mode of gleeful anticipation of a special evening to come, particularly after the decision to let Bezcala act and Kaufmann provide the singing from the sidelines. They were not disappointed. Kaufmann performed brilliantly between chews of what appeared to be a hastily organized sandwich and gulps of mineral water. He was supposed to be only the voice, with Bezcala miming the words and action but the audience was hard put to keep its eyes on the stage. Formally, Kaufmann is at the Salzburg Festival this year to sing in another role and on Saturday he was supposed to be resting up for a performance on Sunday. But more of that later. As he threw himself into the role of the poor poet in love with the consumptive seamstress Mimi, Kaufmann accented his broad, full-throated and awe-inspiring Wagnerian tenor with gestures and facial expressions reflecting his total identification with the role of a man tossed and turned by the forces of love and despair. Though that wasnt the plan, Kaufmann essentially reduced Beczala to window-dressing. He even occasionally verged on upstaging Mimi no small feat, considering that she was portrayed by Anna Netrebko, the Russian diva who imbues any role with star presence worthy more of Hollywood than the opera stage. Netrebkos lush voice, perfect intonation, masterful control and passionate interpretations are always a treat, and she again lived up to expectations as Mimi, particularly considering that the opera one of the worlds most popular has never been performed at the Salzburg Festival before this year. Previous highbrow festival directors had considered it trashy. But back to Kaufmann and forward to Richard Strauss Ariadne auf Naxos, an opera written only a few decades later than La Boheme but as different as day and night. While La Boheme tells the story straight, Ariadne is an opera within a play. The prologue depicting backstage preparations for the performance of an opera is then followed by that opera a work based on Greek mythology exploring the purity of real love. But the rich burgher who commissioned the work suddenly decides to combine it with a farcical musical comedy. It is a prescription for chaos that instead turns into delightful musical theater created only as Strauss could have done. It all isnt complicated enough, however, for director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, who has added yet another layer to the Salzburg production. He weaves in the love story of librettist Hugo von Hoffmannsthal and Ottonie von Degenfeld-Schonburg, a young widow. She is said to have been the model for Ariadne, who longs for death after being abandoned by her lover and finds love in the arms of Bacchus, played by Kaufmann. Kaufmann on Sunday was in brilliant voice, just a day after his impromptu La Boheme stint and Bechtolfs conceit works brilliantly, with the curtain going down on three couples arm-inarm: Bacchus and Ariadne; the rich burgher and Zerbinetta, the leader of the comic troupe; and Hugo and Ottonie. Salzburg Festival opens Birthday An endeavor in the year ahead might not get off to the auspicious start that you hoped it would. However, dont let this discourage you, because tenacity will help you reap the rewards you desire. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you have to contend with an individual who is unyielding and stubborn, attempting to convert him or her to your way of doing things could turn out to be an exercise in futility. Let it go. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont assume any new financial obligations, especially if you are already straining to take care of some old debts. One more straw could break the camels back. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Before accusing your mate or anyone else of dragging his or her feet, make sure youre doing everything that is required of you. Theres a chance that youve dropped the ball. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Should you find yourself being asked to perform a task or assignment that you find distasteful, rather than make a fuss over it, do what is requested with a smile. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Do what you can to steer clear of a controversial situation that involves two of your friends. Your well-meaning input could complicate matters rather than help resolve them. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Disagreements with family need to be kept private. Instead of acquiring support, airing your disputes in public merely makes everyone look bad in the eyes of others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You should strive to be supportive of associates who express their ideas and/or plans. If you feel compelled to comment, make sure that what you say is constructive, not critical. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Before taking on any longterm obligation at this point in time, review the possibilities from all angles. If you are impulsive about it, you could create difficulties that would last a long while. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you find yourself stymied by a lack of support, be both patient and persevering. There isnt anyone who cant be won over. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont expect your colleagues to do things for you that you could easily do for yourself. Whether theyre friends or co-workers, others will resent being manipulated. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It might provide you with temporary pleasure to put frivolous interests ahead of duties, but it wont equal the guilt youll feel and/or blame youll collect on account of not doing your job. Cancer (June 21-July 22) There wont be any free rides currently. Only hard work and persistence will help you achieve goals worthy of the effort. Youll need to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Federal prosecutors on Monday announced a deal to drop a criminal case against Gibson Guitar Corp. after the instrument maker acknowledged its importations of exotic wood violated environmental laws. Nashville-based Gibson agreed to pay a $300,000 penalty, forfeit claims to about $262,000 worth of wood seized by federal agents and contribute $50,000 to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to promote the conservation of protected tree species. The agreement is fair and just in that it assesses serious penalties for Gibsons behavior while allowing Gibson to continue to focus on the business of making guitars, U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin said in a statement. Gibson didnt immediately respond to messages left Monday seeking comment. The privately held company is considered one of the top makers of acoustic and electric guitars, including the iconic Les Paul introduced in 1952. Gibsons decision to cooperate with the federal Lacey Act banning the import of endangered wood products stood in contrast to a publicity campaign mounted in protest after agents raided Gibson facilities in Memphis and Nashville. Republicans and tea party members had rallied behind CEO Henry Juszkiewicz at the time he denounced the raids as overzealous federal regulation that threatened American jobs. We feel totally abused, Juszkiewicz said immediately after the August 2011 raid. He vowed at the time the company would fight aggressively to prove our innocence. Soon afterward he was invited by House Speaker John Boehner to attend a joint session of Congress in which President Barack Obama delivered a speech on jobs. A few weeks later a company spokesman claimed that a federal agent had lied in affidavits claiming the CEO knew the wood seized by authorities was illegally imported. Those affidavits supporting the search warrant that authorized the raids alleged that shipments of imported Indian ebony and rosewood were given false labels to circumvent import restrictions. The settlement says a Gibson employee learned during a 2008 trip to Madagascar the source of some of the ebony wood that was seized that it was illegal to import unfinished wood and sent a report about it to his superiors, including company President David Berryman. The exotic woods used in such guitars are considered integral to the sound. And artists who have played Gibson instruments range widely from Chet Atkins and Maybelle Carter in country to Pete Townshend of The Who and Eric Clapton in rock to Larry Carlton and Paul in jazz. George Gruhn, who owns a vintage guitar shop in Nashville, said he wasnt surprised that Gibson officials accepted the settlement. Regardless of the merits of the case on either side, it would have cost more than that by far to pursue it, he said. Even if they thought they conceivably they could win, it would have probably cost more than $1 million to do it. Gruhn said the resolution of the Gibson case doesnt ease his concerns about the Lacey Act, which initially halted the trade in endangered wildlife goods, like ivory, but in 2008 added rare woods to the import ban. The problem is that virtually every instrument prior to 1970 contains Brazilian rosewood, he said. Even on a Gibson LGO, which was their cheapest student guitar. Justice and Interior Department officials said in a September letter that those who unknowingly possess an instrument made from illegally imported materials dont have a criminal problem. Last year, Blackburn and fellow U.S. Reps. Jim Cooper of Nashville, a Democrat, introduced legislation they said would protect people from charges for unknowingly possessing illegally imported wood, and would require the federal government to establish a database of forbidden wood sources.

Fast friends DREW NASH /The Times-NewsFriends Justin Kelley, 15, right, and Matt Lowe, 14, play a video game July 19 at Lowes home while Justins brother, Chris Kel ley, 20, watches in the background in Jerome, Idaho. The boys met at a MuscularDystrophy Association camp in McCall over the summer. Idaho teens bond over letters, videogames, muscular dystrophy T ETONAD UNLAP Times-News TWIN FALLS, Idaho F or one afternoon, Matt Lowe and Justin Kelley were just teenage boys. They played video games, eyes transfixed on the screen, their wheelchairs side by side as their hands clutched game controllers. Matt, 14, was showing Justin, 15, how to play a Halo 3 mini-game called Jenga Tower. Dont shoot. Thats not how you play the game, Matt said. Matt pushed a button on his wheelchair to recline and get more comfortable, as Justin said: I think Im winning. In an hour, Justin would have to make the two-hour ride from Matts Jerome home back to Nampa. These treasured visits could be more frequent if Matt could travel easily, and their two families hope donations will help them buy a van Matt can ride in. During Justins July 19 visit, Matts older sister, Shanna, 19, sat on Matts bed with Justins brother, Chris, 20. Matts baseball cap collection hung above them, and Halo Reach and Angry Birds posters on one wall. A nightstand was stacked with games like Max Payne 3 and Gears of War 3. Next to Matts bed was a letter Justin wrote to Matt after the two returned to their separate homes following a McCall camp in June. Matt, I have sent you an extra headset. Hope it will come in handy. I have a lot of fun playing Xbox Live with you. Glad I went to camp and met you and now we are friends, Justin wrote. The boys met at the Muscular Dystrophy Association camp, a weeklong camp for children with neuromuscular disease. Matt and Justin have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic condition caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptoms emerge in early childhood; the disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it affects girls. Muscle weakness is one the first symptoms and can begin as early as age 3. It first affects the muscles of the hips, pelvic area, thighs and shoulders then later the skeletal muscles in the arms, legs and trunk, and by the early teens, the heart and respiratory muscles. Justins father, Doug Kelley, remembers thinking that his son was just a late bloomer. At 4 years old, Justin was having a hard time getting up and running. Then his muscles started swelling up.

Now, even more data has been presented showing that some cancer treatments may not be as effective in obese people as they are in those of a normal body mass. For years, experts have been questioning if hormone-suppressing drugs are the best treatment for obese women with breast cancer because they still have higher levels of estrogen than normal weight women, even after treatment.

It affects almost one in six men in the United States once in their lifetime. In most cases, it is a slow-growing cancer. It grows so slowly in many men that it would not kill most people. Still, in some patients, prostate cancer is fastgrowing and spreads to other parts of the body, mainly bones. In these patients, it can kill.

This is roughly 11 percent of 242,000 people diagnosed each year in the United See GANDHI / Page C6 W e are all aware of the hearing loss problem that affects the older adult population, but what we might not think about is the hearing loss problem that is affecting our teens and young adults. Noise exposure in the work place decades ago caused many of our older adult patient population to lose their hearing. The industrial revolution here in America and the postWorld War II buildup when there were numerous factories building numerous products, everything from washing machines to cars to airplanes, exposed people to noise. Over the years, this became a problem that was addressed, and certain rules, regulations and laws were instituted to safeguard employees in these situations. As a result, nowadays most facilities protect and guard their employees ears. Teenagers and young adults most likely do not work in these types of environments, as most products in the United States are imported. We do not build much of anything in the United States, but we do buy things, and among the things we buy are audio technology in the form of cell phones, iPods and stereo equipment for our homes and cars.

C2 T UESDAY, A UGUST 7, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE H EALTH& L IFE Truvada drug combo reduces risk of HIV infection Q : What can you tell me about the drug recently approved to reduce HIV risk? A: On July 16, the FDA approved Truvada, the first drug for reducing the risk of sexually acquired human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Truvada is a twodrug combination medication that was originally approved in 2004 to treat HIVinfected adults and children 12 years or older used in conjunction with other HIV medications. Truvada is now also approved to be taken once daily and used together with safer sex practices to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV infection in adults who do not have HIV, but are at high risk of becoming infected. In two large clinical studies, Truvada reduced the risk of HIV infection by 42 percent in about 2,500 HIV-negative gay and bisexual men and transgender women, and by 75 percent in about 4,800 heterosexual couples in which one partner was infected with HIV and the other was not. Before Truvada is prescribed, health care professionals need to weigh the risk versus benefit as follows: The person must be tested to ensure that he or she is HIV negative, and this test should be repeated every three months thereafter. Flu-like symptoms such as fever or muscle aches are a red flag because they could indicate the presence of early, acute HIV infection, even if test results are negative. There is a window of four to five weeks with some tests, and up to three months with others, in which the antibodies that indicate HIV infection do not appear in the blood. Safety concerns tied to Truvada have to do with its effect on the bones and kidneys. While effects observed in clinical trials were mild and reversible with discontinuation of the medication, people with a history of bone or kidney ailments should be regularly monitored to ensure their continued health. It is recommended that the person also be tested for hepatitis B, because worsening of hepatitis B infections has been reported in those who have both HIV and hepatitis B when treatment with Truvada was stopped. In addition, the FDA requires a strategy to reduce the risks of using Truvada which includes a training program for prescribers to help them counsel patients on several key points including the following: The drug should not become a substitute for a condom, but rather, an adjunct to condom use and other preventive measures. The antiretroviral must be taken daily, because its effectiveness strongly correlates to adherence. Intermittent use might spur on the development of Truvadaresistant HIV. Monitoring a patients HIV status after the start of preexposure prophylaxis is crucial because if a patient subsequently becomes infected, he or she should switch from the standalone antiretroviral to the combination of antiretrovirals for treating (as opposed to preventing) HIV infection. Also, an HIVpositive patient who continues to take Truvada by itself risks the development of a drug-resistant virus. About 1.2 million Americans have HIV infection with about 50,000 adults and adolescents newly diagnosed each year. The overall rate of HIV infection has remained stable at least since 2004. A key goal of anti-HIV drugs is to help stop HIV from reproducing. HIV is a virus that attacks your immune system, which is made up of millions of cells that help fight against infection and disease. Once HIV enters the body, the virus infects specialized immune system cells known as CD4 cells and multiplies (replicates) inside these cells. These new viruses are released into the blood and go on to infect other CD4 cells. As CD4 cells are attacked and destroyed by HIV, the immune system becomes less able to fight infection and disease. Anti-HIV drugs work by helping to stop or inhibit certain steps during the HIV replication process. When used in combination, anti-HIV therapies can help reduce the amount of HIV in the blood (viral load). Truvada works to prevent the HIV virus from establishing itself and multiplying in the body.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 7, 2012 C5 Old dentures a sore spot for one reader Q : After reading your column last week, I started to think about a few things with my dentures. I am 68 years old and have been wearing dentures since my 20s. I am currently wearing my third set, which is about 15 years old. I have noticed the teeth have worn down and I cannot chew like I used to. My biggest problem is I have a sore right behind my last tooth on the bottom left. It seems as though the denture is settling into the gums. No matter what I do, I cannot get rid of this sore. In the past, I would have a sore, baby it, and it would go away. This one wont go away. Do you have any idea what this could be and if there is something that can be done to help me? A: Thanks so much for your question. I am glad my column got you thinking. I might actually have the answer for you, as what you are describing is not uncommon. Since you did not mention it, I am going to assume you have a full denture on the top and a partial on the bottom. This is a very common scenario, and I know you have lower teeth since you mentioned the sore behind the last tooth on the left. As for not being able to chew as well, you might be right on target. The worn teeth over the years are probably not as efficient as they used to be. Having a new set of teeth made will definitely help with this. Unfortunately, there is not much else that can be done when the teeth are worn beyond their usefulness. As for the sore on the bottom I bet it has to do with the partial denture. There are many times a denture is made without the use of a rest seat. A rest seat is a small dimple that is made on the back of the last tooth so the metal of the partial can rest into it. This helps with settling of the denture. It is especially important if the same denture is worn for many years without having had a reline. What happens is, as bone is lost (this occurs naturally) the denture settles towards the gums. If the rest is not there, the patient gets a significant sore right behind the last tooth. No matter what the patient does, the pain persists. An adjustment by a dentist might help for a short period of time, but it is guaranteed to come back again. The best solution is to make a new denture with the use of a rest seat. I am pretty certain this is what you are experiencing. I would suggest you go to your dentist and see if I am on target. You will likely need a new set of teeth. The good news is your problem should be solved! Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Write to 4805 S.

dont understand. When are you legally supposed to stop for a school bus? The first and easiest law to remember: if you are behind a school bus and it stops to pick up or drop off students, you MUST stop and NO, you cannot pass it. Second: on a two-lane highway, both directions MUST stop. Third: if you are on a fourlane highway with a turn lane in between, both directions (all four lanes), MUST stop. And fourth: if you are on a four-lane highway with an actual median separation, only the vehicles behind the bus must stop; however, if you are in one of the lanes opposite the bus, you should still use caution. School buses are one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, riding a bus to school is 13 times safer than riding in a passenger vehicle and 10 times safer than walking to school. The reality of school bus safety is that more children are hurt outside the bus than inside as passengers. Most of the children who lose their lives in busrelated crashes are pedestrians, 4 to 7 years old, who are hit by the bus or by motorists illegally passing a stopped school bus. Citrus County school buses have flashing strobetype lights and are equipped with stop signs that activate during pickups and drop-offs. One thing to remember is that children dont always cross the street at intersections and many wear headphones or earplugs while listening to music and may not be aware of their surroundings. Keeping them safe is still up to you whether they step off the bus or walk home, so always drive with caution. Now, here are a few ideas to keep you from losing your temper in those early morning and late afternoon driving times. I recommend leaving the house earlier than normal to allow extra time for school traffic and do so for at least a week or two. Remember that crossing guards are not on duty to make you late for work; they are working to keep our children safe. Here is one more thing: if the school zone lights are flashing or the time of day is stated, slow down to the legal speed; 20 miles per hour is NOT a suggestion. Its against the law, very stiff fines are issued, and someone could get hurt or worse if you exceed the school zone speed limit. Nature Coast EMS team members all too often see accidents that could have been avoided, so watch your speed, look out for children, and be aware of the school buses. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff in Citrus County for a safe and happy school year. We hope you all get As! As always, be safe, take care and stay well!

LUCAS Continued from Page C1 Whether we acknowledge it or not, it is a fact young Americans who use this technology are losing their hearing faster today than any generations prior. We are talking about millions of young Americans, some of them younger than 18, who have lost part if not all of their hearing. Some estimates suggest 20 percent of American teens have some form of hearing loss. Noises above 85 decibels can cause hearing damage. To give you some idea, generalized traffic noise is about 70 decibels, but a lawnmower or a rock concert can exceed 100 to 120 decibels and do damage. An iPod played at 90 percent to 100 percent of its volume longer than 90 minutes a day can cause damage to the inner ear that is not reversible or correctible. This exposure to loud music can destroy the sensory cells of the inner ear and once one-fourth or onethird of these sensory cells are damaged, hearing loss starts and the hearing will never be recovered. Many of us who are in our 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s can appreciate the preciousness of hearing and/or can relate to hearing loss, as we have started noticing some problems. Unfortunately, the millions of young Americans see themselves as bulletproof and are not aware of the damage that they are incurring. Simple things that do not change the lifestyle of young Americans can be implemented to help prevent hearing loss. Pay attention to your noisy environment, whether it is play time or the workplace. If you cannot get away from the noise, wear ear protection. The simple task of lowering the volume of the TV, radio, computer, stereo, car radio, iPod or MP3 player works wonders. If you like to do noisy things like riding motorcycles, ATVs or have a job that exposes you to loud noise, filter the noise out. Wear some appropriate approved ear plugs and you can do the same when you go to concerts and night clubs. They are very small in many cases and are very inconspicuous and most people will not even know what you are doing all the while you are taking care to preserve your hearing. Do not use cotton or wool as an ear plug, as it will not do the proper job of protecting your hearing. I think we all understand that loud noise such as an explosion can damage your ear, but what I do not think we understand is that repeated exposure for longer than a 90-minute period of time to less-loud noise can equally damage the ear over time. Protect your ears and your hearing, as they are precious. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

The Kelley family moved to Idaho about a year ago from California, and the Idaho MDA soon contacted them with an invitation to this summers camp. Doug describes Justin as introverted, somebody who doesnt like to be the center of attention. He prefers to stay home on most days. Justin didnt even want to go to MDA camp, and it was hard for Doug to send him. But Doug made him go anyway, stipulating that Chris attend as a counselor. When Justin returned from camp, Doug and his wife, Tracey, said their usually quiet boy couldnt stop talking about his new friend Matt. My boy wants to get up and hang out with Matt, Doug said. In the past, children with DMD were not expected to survive past their teen years. But according to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, due to advances in cardiac and respiratory care its become common for those with DMD to live into their 30s. As a toddler, Matt was really happy, said his mother, Alauna Block, as she pointed to a photo of her sons round, smiling face. When they go in the wheelchair, they dont want to be exposed to the world, Block said. Alauna recalled a year when the family learned, shortly after picking up Matt from camp, that a fellow camper and friend had died during his ride home from camp. Alauna said she reminds her son that on any day anyone can die. We just enjoy what moments we have to spend, she said. I just take it one day at a time. When Matt underwent surgery for scoliosis in 2011, Alauna said, he told her when he woke up: Mom, I didnt die. She often asks Matt what he thinks about his situation. He has simply told her, Ill be all right ... Im just living in the here and now, she said. Anytime the Kelleys intend to visit Matt, Doug said, Justin wakes right up and doesnt mind the long ride. They open up when they are with each other, Alauna said. So far friendships are hard to come by ... they connect on a different level. When Justin visits, its a time for the two friends to hang out, chat, play video games and go to a restaurant together. Its not every day that Matt gets the opportunity to leave his house. In May, Alauna had to get rid of her van because it was developing more mechanical problems and the 8-foot metal ramp she attached was so steep and dangerous she feared Matt would fall over while being loaded. Matt often has doctors appointments in Boise, and more than once Alauna was afraid the van would break down between Boise and Jerome. To get to camp this year, Matt used a rental van donated by Access Vans, an adaptive vehicle services company in Boise. But there are many times that Matt and his family would just like to be able to go to the store or a restaurant safely and easily. A Twin Falls woman gave them a van that belonged to her sister who had cerebral palsy and died recently. It was really, really neat she would do that, Alauna said. The two families are trying to raise money to purchase a van that would fit all Matts needs. An account was opened at Pioneer Federal Credit Union called Operation Matt Mobile. A webpage (www.operationmattmobile.org) shares Matts story and is a place to make online donations. If Matts parents can buy a van, hell be able to leave his house to go to the store and visit Justin in Nampa. (Justin) literally is so excited to do something for his friend because its going to be life-changing for him, too, Doug said. FRIENDS Continued from Page C1 and found that hormonesuppressing drugs did greatly decrease estrogen levels in obese women, however, those levels still more than doubled a normal weight womans level. The experts published their study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, hoping their findings will help doctors provide the best treatment for overweight and obese women. Scientists say that women receiving treatment for breast cancer should not be affected by these findings, while emphasizing that the effect of obesity was modest. However, in my opinion, it is even more of a reason for those of you who have had breast cancer and weigh more than you should to increase your level of activity. More than three quarters of breast cancers need estrogen to grow, so one of the best ways to treat it is by stopping the hormones ability to increase. As we already know, women with obesity have higher levels of estrogen than normal weight women. This new research shows that in overweight women, hormone-suppressing drugs (like Arimidex and other aromatase inhibitors, as the class of drugs is called) considerably decrease their levels, but those levels are still higher during treatment than normal weight women who receive the same treatment. And the goal is to have the levels as low as possible. In this study, researchers found that women with higher BMIs had more estrogen remaining in their blood after treatment than healthy-weight women, which is consistent with previous suggestions that aromatase inhibitors might be slightly less effective in these obese women. Their findings were based on laboratory studies, so researchers would need to carry out clinical trials to tell us whether women with a higher BMI would benefit from changes to their treatment. Women with higher BMIs should certainly not be alarmed by this finding or stop taking their treatment. This study takes us a step closer to understanding which of the treatment options available might be the most suitable for individual women. However, obese women should become proactive, and try to lose some weight. Two aromatase inhibitors were examined anastrozole and letrozole (a more potent drug). Fifty-four postmenopausal women were examined who were treated at the Edinburgh Breast Unit, and who had estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. The women were treated with either three months of adjuvant anastrozole then three months of letrozole, or the drugs in the opposite order. Forty-four of those patients were able to give data before and after treatment on their BMI and estrogen levels. Their levels of estradiol in the blood were measured. The results showed that before treatment, women with higher BMIs also had higher estrogen levels. Women with BMIs between 30 and 35 had about three times more plasma estrogen than women with a BMI of 25 or less. The research also showed that women with BMIs between 30 and 35 still had levels of plasma estrogen three times higher than healthy weight women after letrozole treatment. Why does this matter? It is simple. Aromatase inhibitors have played an increasing role in breast cancer treatment over the past decade, so it is important to understand the factors that affect how well they work in individual women in order to allow doctors to choose the best possible drug from the range available. As we move to more personalized treatments for each individual, weight may play a large role. Dr. C.

Our goal should be to find this fast-growing and more dangerous cancer and treat it early with either surgery or radiation therapy. PSA is a blood test that was developed to detect prostate cancer early. It definitely helps detection of early cancer, but it does not distinguish between slow-growing and somewhat benign prostate cancer from aggressive and fast-growing cancer that may kill the patient. It is a simple blood test. In the United States, most doctors recommend it to all men older than 50. If the PSA level is high, standard recommendation is to do a prostate biopsy as an outpatient to detect whether the patient had cancer or not. This is because PSA can go up not only in patients with cancer, but also due to BPH or benign prostate enlargement or infection in the prostate. This leads to many patients without cancer who undergo prostate biopsy. It also leads to treatment with surgery or radiation in many patients with slowgrowing prostate cancer. This cancer is unlikely to cause any harm to the patient in most cases. Of course, treatment can cause side effects like impotence or urinary incontinence. The USPTF or United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended against PSA testing in all healthy men without any symptoms. Their reasoning was that the test helps some but hurts many more due to the above-mentioned reasons. This was not well received by urologists and many physicians who commonly treat cancer. This is because if we do not do PSAs at all, many patients with aggressive cancer would die who could have been helped by early detection and treatment. Recently, the ASCO or American Society of Oncology made wiser recommendations. This is the largest organization of cancer experts in the united States. The ASCO developed the following recommendations for PSA testing in men with no symptoms of the disease: For men expected to live 10 years or less, general screening is not recommended because the risks appear to outweigh the benefits for most men. For men expected to live longer than 10 years, patients should talk about PSA testing with their doctors to find out if it is an appropriate test for them. In short, every man older than 50 should discuss this issue with his doctor. Everyones philosophy of life, risk tolerance, risk of cancer is different. The patient, along with his own doctor, can make the best decision that suits him. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

P atients sometimes do not realize how important a role they play in obtaining a correct diagnosis for their medical problem through their history or description of the problem. Medical issues and injuries do have classic textbook cases and relatively easy diagnoses, such as an ingrown toenail, laceration or broken bone following trauma. Laboratory results, radiographs and other diagnostic tests can confirm or make certain diagnoses. However, there are certain conditions which may be more nebulous and difficult to diagnose. A patient who complains that their toes are crooked probably has hammertoes. A patient who complains of heel pain that is terrible with their first step, then seems to improve until they rest and get up again, probably has plantar fasciitis. Tingling sensations in both feet identically primarily noticed in bed at night likely is the earliest stage of peripheral polyneuropathy. These straightforward diagnoses are not always the case with other conditions. A patient with a large bump near the great toe that is irritated with shoes probably has a bunion. The bump could also look like a bunion to even the trained eye, but really be a hallux rigidus, and treatment indicated for bunions used on hallux rigidus will fail. This holds true for all the specialties in medicine. A thorough description of the problem and course can be vital to making the correct diagnosis. This is the case as the patient, not the physician, is connected to and experiences the problem. Thus, the patient is the best source of information in most cases. A good description of the problem helps me many times make an accurate diagnosis. What makes it better or worse? When is it most noticeable during the day? Is there a particular time of day the symptoms are worse? What have you or others tried to help? Do the symptoms travel? Do shoes influence the problem and if so what shoes in particular? Has this occurred before? What does it feel like? Patients often do not think these questions are important in diagnosis, but they are. A physician is looking for an adjective for the presentation of the discomfort or pain to help make the diagnosis to help the patient. Simply saying it hurts is usually not helpful. Rather a more detailed description of the pain is much more helpful. Descriptions of burning, tingling, electric, numb and cramping point me in the neurologic or circulation direction. Cramping with exercise or lying down points more toward circulation. A feels like description points to a nerve issue, such as, It feels like socks are bunched up under my toes even if I am not wearing socks. Aching points me toward an orthopedic problem. Pain after rest points me toward tendon, ligament, or joint pathologies, etc. There are times when some information a patient relates regarding a problem is irrelevant, and time is more and more limited in medicine, unfortunately. However, there are times when I am having a hard time making a diagnosis based on what I see and what the patient has related until they make one statement that seems to open a door. Sometimes a patient will say I dont know if this means anything, but ... and that bit of information helps fill in gaps in the diagnostic process significantly. Heel pain is an example. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. Many patients self-diagnose or are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, but not all are plantar fasciitis. Patients who consistently deny that their symptoms are worse when first arising to their feet have to be considered for another cause, especially in light of failing to respond to prior treatments. Patients who relate increased symptoms the longer they are on their foot may have a bursitis instead, even if a spur shows up on a radiograph. Pain in the heel that does not respond to a heel cushion or an injection of cortisone that worsens in a standing posture can be due a pinched nerve in the lumbar spine in absence of any back pain or symptoms. Radiographs, lab work, CT scan, MRI and bone scan will not diagnose this particular problem causing lumbar radiculopathy. A nerve conduction test can confirm a neurologic diagnosis, but a suspicion of the diagnosis is the only impetus that would cause a physician to order this test with a complaint of heel pain in most cases. A pinched nerve causing heel pain is not a common cause of heel pain; however, statements in a patients history can tip a physician to give this consideration or differential diagnosis. Back in podiatry school, my professors said you must listen to the patient and ask the right questions before you treat. Patients will tell you the diagnosis 85 percent of the time alone without any tests if you simply listen to their symptoms. My professors were right.

Searching for scouts Two Recruitment Fairs slated for Citrus County in August Honoring American heroes Special to the Chronicle Citrus 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 as Purple Heart Recognition Day in Citrus County. The Purple Heart, originally known as the Military Badge of Merit, was established by the general orders 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. Friends and family of Irvin and Jewel Bohrer recently gathered at North Fauci Point in Crystal River to raise the walls of their new Habitat home. I went to an orientation and submitted the application for home ownership but never thought that I would be approved, said Bohrer. It took about three months for the family to obtain enough of the required 500 sweat equity hours for work to begin on their home. Construction is expected to be completed in October. Persons interested in entering the Habitat housing program must attend a mandatory orientation course from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Realtors Association of Citrus County building, 714 S. Scarboro Ave., Lecanto. For more information, call the Habitat office at 352-563-2744 or visit the webpage at www.habitatcc.org.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A UGUST 7, 2012 C9 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee said, While we believe that cost-benefit analysis is an important tool to inform agency decisionmaking, the results of the cost-benefit analysis do not trump existing law. This week we are looking at how a declarer who has too many losers in a trump contract can eliminate those he cannot afford. Yesterday we looked at discarding. One of Thompsons words highlights the second common method. South is in four spades. How many losers does he have, and what should he do after winning the first trick with his heart ace? Souths jump to four spades is a slight overbid, but we love that vulnerable game bonus! South, looking at his own hand and taking dummys honor cards into account, should see four losers: two diamonds and two clubs. (He has only nine winners: six spades, two hearts and one club.) The key is the club suit. Whenever declarer has a side suit with more cards in his hand than on the board, he should plan to ruff losers in the dummy. Note that South starts with six trump tricks. If he ruffs a loser in his hand, he still has only six trump winners. But if he ruffs on the board, he gains a seventh trump trick. Declarer should cash the club ace and play another club. He wins, say, the heart return, ruffs the club jack high in the dummy, draws trumps, and claims. Finally, note that if South errs by drawing two rounds of trumps before playing on clubs, West should take his sides club trick and lead his last trump to kill the club ruff.

Nancy recently took a fourmonth leave due to stress and anxiety. During her absence, Joe and I went to lunch a few times and dinner on one occasion. Nothing romantic happened. I planned to let Nancy know at the time, but didnt think it was important enough to send an email. I left her a voicemail to call me and hoped wed get together during her leave. Unfortunately, I didnt get the chance. When she came back, Nancy accused me of swooping in and taking over Joe. I have tried talking to her, but shes angry that I didnt tell her during her leave. I explained that I tried, but she never called me back. She claims I crossed her territory and now cant be trusted. She believes I was plotting all along. I also suspect that she is spreading rumors about me, saying I want to sleep with Joe. Thats not true. I am trying my best not to let this bother me. Joe has spoken to her, but I dont have any idea what he said. The problem is, it is extremely uncomfortable in the office now. Although I love my work, I may need to look for a new job. It upsets me that someone could be so cruel, even though I tried my best to be supportive during her leave. Any suggestions for coping with Nancy? Coworker Dear Co-worker: Nancy seems very proprietary toward Joe, and unless they are a romantic couple, he should set her straight. Her behavior is unprofessional and disruptive. But you are not entirely blameless. Having lunch and dinner with your boss could be misconstrued, and you were well aware that this would bother Nancy. You should have made a greater effort to speak to her during her absence. Apologize sincerely for unintentionally stepping on her toes, reassure her that you have no interest in Joe, and then let her make the next move. If time does not alleviate the situation, you may opt to take it up with human resources. Dear Annie: My husband is retired, while I still work four days a week. He hires someone to cut the grass, but I trim the bushes, pull the weeds, wash the windows and do all the housecleaning and laundry. He will help cook because I dont have time and he likes to eat. So what does he do all day? He hangs out with his friends, goes for a walk or to the gym, attends Bible study classes and visits the sick. I think maybe I should get sick and see if he will visit me. Overworked in Ohio Dear Ohio : While its admirable that your husband visits the sick, he apparently believes that retirement means he is free from all obligations except those he willingly chooses. This is unfair to you. First try talking to him about it, explaining that you see no reason to have two jobs while he has none. Tell him that pitching in and doing his share will help your marriage. But you also are taking on more than you need to. If you can afford it, hire someone to do the more difficult, timeconsuming chores. Leave his laundry where it falls, and let him handle it. You can make choices, too. Dear Annie : Disgusted in Louisiana took issue with your response to Desperate Housewife that all couples need to tend to their marriages and flirt with their spouses. I am sorry to hear how unhappy she is. I have been married to the love of my life for 50 years. Yes, perhaps the passion from long ago is gone, but we flirt, snuggle and have date night, and my heart still flutters when he enters the room. I cannot imagine my life without him. Growing old together is exactly what we treasure. Happy in El Paso Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Issues werent debated in some anonymous forum. They were out in the open, on the avenue, at City Hall or the courthouse. Politics was local and it was personal to the folks who grew up in Citrus County, before northerners invaded and the population spread away from Crystal River and Inverness. It was a constant source of conversation at the Tolle dinner table. After all, Kay Tolles father, Hugh Barco, was tax assessor for 22 years. Her husband, Ed, had the same job for 10 years and also served on the Crystal River City Council. Their daughter, Laura Lou Fitzpatrick, spoke warmly of the memories Monday. My mom and dad loved politics, she said. Mom was behind the scenes. Mrs. Tolle, a fourthgeneration Citrus Countian, died Friday, Aug. 3, 2012. She was 86.

SIDIBE Staff WriterINVERNESS A man accused of brandishing a laser-equipped pistol, threatening to shoot people with it and harassing patrons at a local bar was taken into custody Sunday night, according to the Citrus County Sheriff Office. Jason Thomas Foster, 40, who lives on North Golf Harbor Path near Inverness, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony and driving under the influence (DUI). His bond is $8,500. According to Fosters arrest affidavit, when investigators arrived at Coachs Bar and Restaurant, a man told them he had just been threatened by an intoxicated individual carrying a gun. The witness said Foster approached him on the sidewalk near the bar and asked if he wanted to hang out. He declined. He told investigators that Foster then became angry and reached in his pocket and turned on a green laser and told him the laser was attached to a firearm for better aim. Foster reportedly then threatened to shoot the man. According to the report, the man fled to his vehicle where he, too, reportedly had a firearm. When investigators talked to witnesses at the bar, an employee said she recalled Foster as someone who was bugging other patrons. She reportedly told investigators she yelled at Foster to move to another side of the bar in a bid to separate him from other patrons. She alleged Foster then pulled a black gun with a green laser attached to show her. She said Foster even turned on the laser and said to her they dont know who they are messing with. The witness reportedly asked Foster to leave the bar, which he did. Two other witnesses said Foster approached them and asked if they were gay and threatened to shoot them, but said he never brandished a weapon. At the same time that investigators were talking to witnesses at the bar about Foster, he was pulled over in a traffic stop on Gospel See ARREST/ Page A4 Right now, because of the high tide (rain water), were getting a lot of flood water and salt marsh mosquitoes, said Director of the CCMCD Joel Jacobson. All it takes is one tablespoon of water to breed more than 200 mosquitoes, and four days for them to become biting adults. Arboviruses, or mosquito-transmitted disease, are a high concern for the CCMCD due to the high influx of mosquitoes. These viruses include: malaria, yellow fever, encephalitis, dengue fever and dog heartworm. Mosquitoes cannot transmit the AIDS virus. Even in times of drought, animals, such as birds, will gather in large numbers at small water sources, allowing mosquitoes to travel easily from bird to bird to human. Its called a fibonacci sequence, said Jacobson. Container breeders, spawning from manmade sites and materials, are also a more direct route to people, but are still easily preventable. Here are a few ways to defend yourself from mosquitoes and even prevent more mosquitoes from appearing. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Mosquito Control surveillance coordinator Bill Kellner uses a laptop computer to view a mosquito under a microscope Wednesday morning at the Mosquito Control District office in Lecanto. Intense magnification of the flying pests is used to determine the species of each bug examined. Joldi Standard, surveillance technician for the Citrus County Mosquito Control, uses a dropper to capture a mosquito larvae for examination. MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER Voters wont find state Sen. Charlie Deans name on any ballot this election season, but that doesnt mean the veteran politician is sitting out the campaign. Dean, who was re-elected to another four-year term with opposition, has supported financially two of the three Republican candidates for Citrus County sheriff. And he also speaks highly of Scott Adams, one of four candidates in the county commission District 5 race and a business associate in several Sumter County solid-waste disposal companies.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterHERNANDO The marks of membership into this exclusive group include a red heart-shaped pillow and a vertical scar that resembles a zipper running down a persons chest. On April 26, Gerretje Bink, 81, became the 2,000th person to undergo openheart surgery at Citrus Memorial Health System since the hospital opened its $14.2 million heart unit in 2004. After three and a half months, Bink is doing well, she said from her home in Hernando. As of Monday, the heart unit has performed 2,052 open heart surgeries, averaging four or five surgeries per week, hospital spokeswoman Katie Mehl. Hospital CEO Ryan Beaty said, Im proud of the physicians, nurses and techs who have gotten us to this significant milestone. Its an honor to have healed so many hearts in Citrus County. I was very healthy before or so I thought, Bink said. However, looking back, she said there had been warning signs that she didnt think were significant at first. In January, Binks husband of 58 years, Idsard, died. A month or so later, she sat at her kitchen table with her daughter, Diane Marks, talking about things she wished she had done, such as visiting New York City. So, they planned a trip, a girls getaway, six of them in all. A couple of days before our trip, Mom had a cough, Marks said. They wrote it off as a cold coming on. Bink was short of breath as well, which they thought was caused by excitement or nerves. The night before they left, Bink had a hard time sleeping, and her legs were cramping and jittery. Again, they thought it was nerves. The women went to New York, saw the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, went to Macys, saw Wicked on Broadway and the whole time Bink had trouble breathing, especially walking four flights of stairs to her granddaughters apartment. Everywhere, I had to stop to take a breath, she said. She thought it was the fumes from the traffic, the air inside the subway. Once back home it didnt go away, plus she kept falling asleep. Bink went to her family doctor who told her there was something wrong, which began a series of cardiac tests. I was home in bed one night and my grandson was staying with me, Bink said. I got a jolt in my chest and I told my grandson, Call your mom; something is wrong. Marks came right away and took her mom to the CMHS emergency room where she was admitted for pneumonia and further tests. After 10 days she was diagnosed with a collapsed heart valve and two blocked arteries and needed openheart surgery. I said, Surgery? At my age? Ill have to think about it. I was scared, and it was so soon since my husband died, she said. All my kids were there and the doctors told them I would be OK. She said she was comforted when heart surgeon Dr. Peter Kim prayed with the entire family. Bink said the surgery went well and she didnt experience as much pain as she had anticipated, adding that she is getting stronger every day. She keeps the heart pillow given to every heart surgery patient on her bed alongside another heart pillow her children gave her for Mothers Day. Marks said the experience has brought the family closer together. I call her every morning and every evening just to check and ask, How was your day? I want to have that constant contact, she said. I dont want to take her life for granted. It happened too fast with my dad, and I dont want to have any regrets.Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927.A2TUESDAY, AUGUST7, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000C5G6 We specialize in: Cataract surgery with premium lens implants including toric and multifocal Laser eye surgery in office Medical, Laser and Surgical treatment of glaucoma Treatment of diabetic eye disorders Complete eye examinations Contact lenses including multifocal, monovision, toric, colored and gas permeable lenses Cornea transplantation and DSAEK surgery Our optical boutique has something for everyone quality eyewear, designer frames, sunglasses, UV a nd premium scratch-resistant coatings, digitally surfaced lenses, prescription sports eyewear and frame repair.

The Chronicle regrets the error. Readers can alert The Citrus County Chronicle to any errors in news articles by emailing newsdesk@ chronicleonline.com or by calling 352-563-5660. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterSteve Burch has made his experience as a budget manager one of the cornerstones of his campaign for Citrus County sheriff. So when his opponent for the Republican nomination, Winn Webb, publicly questioned Burchs budget credentials at the recent ChroniclePolitical Forum by claiming he presided over a bloated budget, Burch felt he had to respond. Burch, who was Crystal River Police chief from 2004 to 2008, said Webbs claim that Burch inherited a $1.1 million budget and grew it to $1.9 million in his last year in office is not an entirely true characterization. According to figures provided to the Chronicleby the city of Crystal River, the budgets approved by city officials were as follows: 2004 $1.3 million; 2005 $1.6 million; 2006 $1.9 million; 2007 $1.6 million. The $1.9 million was because we had $125,000 in grants and the housing boom caused us to plan for things we thought would expand our areas of work. But you can see, when the economic climate and boom changed, we adjusted our budget, Burch said. Webb said he was quoting numbers he got from the citys finance department and that the figures confirm the point he was trying to make. The fact is, his budgets grew, and if you are going to call yourself a fiscal conservative, well, show something that backs that claim, Webb said. And, grants are taxpayers money. Government doesnt make money, they only take and spend, Webb said. Despite the increase in his budget during his tenure, Burch believes he made the right fiscal decisions trying to anticipate future coverage. Burch shared a memo he wrote to city officials in June of 2007, anticipating the impending budgetary crunch and offering cuts and other measures commensurate with funding cuts. It shows we were streamlining the structure of the department while addressing the safety needs of the city, Burch said. Burch, Webb and Hank Hemrick are vying for the GOP nod Aug. 14 to take on incumbent Jeff Dawsy in November.Chronicle reporter A.B.

Burch, Webb dispute budget figures MATTHEWBECK Staff writerPINE RIDGE A three-car crash along West Pine Ridge Boulevard on Monday morning required two drivers to be transported to the hospital, one by helicopter. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Mick Whitsel explained how the 11 a.m. crash occurred. A 2006 Ford work van driven by John Ferguson of Beverly Hills was stopped in the southbound lane of West Pine Ridge Boulevard attempting to turn east onto West Ranger Street, as Citrus Springs resident Katherine Burns, also heading south on the same road, slowed behind the van. The trooper said as Burns 2008 Toyota minivan slowly rolled, preparing to stop behind the work van, as a Honda driven by Richard Tangeman of Crystal River approached from behind the other two vehicles. Trooper Whitsel said the driver of the Toyota observed the gentleman in the Honda coming up pretty quick behind her so she attempted to turn to the left to keep from getting hit from behind. The trooper said of Tangeman, at the last minute he tried to cut to the right, but his left front hit her right rear. He said the side of Burns vehicle then hit the van, causing minor damage to the bumper and doors of the van. The impact from the car and minivan threw Tangeman to slam face first into the windshield of his car, shattering the windshield and leaving an outward dent in the glass. His face hit the windshield pretty hard, Trooper Whitsel said. After the impact between the three vehicles, the Honda careened along the west shoulder of the road and through a thick stand of trees in the front yard of a home. The car came to a stop after slamming into an oak tree. The crash resulted in injuries to two of the three drivers. The trooper said Tangemans injuries were attributable to the lack of a safety restraint. If he was wearing his seat belt he probably wouldnt have gotten hurt at all, he said. You can see his faceprint in the glass, it drove him right into the windshield. The trooper said that seatbelts save lives and they need to be worn by all occupants in a vehicle. One of the main important things to wearing a seat belt is maintaining control of your vehicle, he said. If you get into a hard crash like this, and it knocks you off course, you have the potential of coming out from behind the steering wheel. If youre not behind the steering wheel, youre not going to be able to drive that car. You have to be able to maintain control of your vehicle.

Wreck puts 2 in hospital Trooper: Driver of one car wasnt wearing seat belt CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterA landowners petition to essentially remove part of a proposed road southeast of the Crystal River area received the support last week of the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC). Furman and Hilpert Engineering applied on behalf of owners Earnest and Joy Gallion to remove a portion of North Gulf Avenue within the Gallions property. The vacated section of roadway would stop North Gulf Avenue from connecting from the west side of West Gulf-to-Lake Highway as its northern point to North Marion Way as its southern point. North Gulf Avenue would terminate behind the Family Dollar store on West Gulf-to-Lake Highway opposite the entrance to Meadowcrest. According to the petition, a portion of the roadway has been constructed, while the remainder of the roadway location is vacant and heavily wooded. The unconstructed portion of the roadway also may contain wetlands. Another re-plat would need to be done to provide roadway access for other tracts of land. County staff from several divisions reviewed the request. The Department of Fire Rescue and Emergency Operations Center had no objection. Most utility companies had no objection, although the Withlacoochee River Electric Co-op and the Mosquito Control District requested easements for their access. Initially, the countys engineering division questioned whether the request was consistent with the countys comprehensive plan. Later, it recommended approval. The petition now will go before the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for its approval. The PDC postponed hearing a conditional-use request by Mike Scott Plumbing for land application of treated domestic septage and sanitary waste in an agricultural district on land along South Pleasant Grove Road in Inverness owned by Ella and John Thomas. The applicant proposes to spread domestic septage across 12 acres of land currently used for pasture. The land is otherwise vacant and is part of two larger parcels that contain a single-family residence and agricultural outbuildings. The request is scheduled to be continued on Sept. 20.

Panel weighs in on road issue Miami-Dade mulls lifting ban on pit bulls Associated PressMIAMI A 23-year-old ban on pit bulls, passed after the vicious mauling of a 7-year-old girl, is up for a vote in Miami-Dade County. Pit bull advocates blame the ban on overheated emotions and say they are working to free dogs from unfair imprisonment. But the girl who was mauled, now a 31-year-old hospital administrator, says the bans critics are playing on the emotions of animal lovers at the expense of public safety. If a ballot measure repealing the ban is approved Aug. 14, Miami-Dade County would join the rest of Florida, which prohibits breed-specific laws. MiamiDades ban was grandfathered in. The county commission put the measure on the ballot after the state Legislature rejected a bill that would have overturned Miami-Dades exemption. The ban also made news last winter when the Miami Marlins acquired pitcher Mark Buehrle, who owns a pit bull. Buehrle and his family eventually bought a home in neighboring Broward County so they could keep their dog, Slater. Jamie Buehrle, the pitchers wife, has joined pit bull advocates pushing to overturn the Miami-Dade ordinance. It obviously angers me because thats like basing just on looks and not the actual personality of a dog, said Jamie Buehrle, with Slater on a leash beside her. Its just discrimination, theres no other way around it, theres no other way to describe it. But Melissa Moreira, whose mauling prompted the ban, wants the ordinance to remain on the books. I think that if I were bit by a poodle, I wouldnt have had to have eight major reconstructive plastic surgeries, said Moreira, whose face and scalp still show faded but distinct scars. The dog attacked her, her mother and grandmother as they were carrying groceries into their house. It pulled back Moreiras scalp, exposed the bone on her forehead and left her upper lip hanging. As one neighbor fought the dog, another fatally shot it with a handgun. The people pushing to own pit bulls are just putting themselves at risk. Theyre not taking into account what might happen, and its not safe behavior, Moreira said. Getting reliable statistics on dog bites is difficult no government agency tracks them nationally. Director of Miami-Dade animal services, Alex Munoz, said roughly 3,000 dog bites are reported to the county each year, but the agency doesnt break down the data by breed. If you asked me if there was a predominance of pit bull bites versus other dogs, we dont see a predominance of pit bull bites, Munoz said. Some say its that the ban works. Some say its just because theyre no different from any other dog. Advocates: Breed unfairly demonized

ARRESTContinued from Page A1 Pelosi backs Reids comments on Romney Associated PressBOCA RATON House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi came to the defense of Sen. Harry Reid on Monday over his comments about Mitt Romneys taxes. Reid outraged some Republicans with his remarks last week that hed been told the GOP presidential candidate didnt pay taxes for 10 years, without identifying his source. Pelosi defended the Senate majority leader, saying though it remains to be seen whether the allegation is true, she doesnt believe Reid did anything wrong in publicizing it. If he has said somebody told him that, some credible source, then I believe that, she told reporters after an appearance at a Boca Raton retirement community. She continued: Thats up to Gov. Romney to release his returns and disprove the rumors. Democrats have pressed Romney to release additional years of tax returns, suggested he has something to hide in his finances and tried to make his personal wealth a campaign issue. Pelosi appeared with congressional candidate Lois Frankel and sought to convince seniors that Democrats are the most ardent defenders of Medicare and Social Security. She criticized Romney, who has voiced support for a House Republican plan that would shift Medicare from a fee-for-service program into one where future retirees buy insurance using subsidies. Thats just not what Medicare is about, Pelosi said. We cannot have our seniors be at the mercy of the health insurance industry. This is a guarantee. We cannot turn it into a gamble.

Mosquito Protection Cover up: wear clothing that covers most of your skin. Use repellents: Those with up to 30 percent DEET are recommended. Picardin, oil of lemon, eucalyptus and IR3535, a spray alternative to DEET, are also effective. Not all repellents are safe to use on children. Always read instruction labels before using. Repair torn screens to prevent mosquitoes from entering home. Drain standing water round your home. Mosquito Breeding Sites Low areas that hold water for several days. River and stream floodplains. Drainage ditches that hold water. Overflowing septic tanks. Tires and bird baths. Unmaintained swimming pools. Tree holes. Containers that hold water: cans, bottles, flower pots, buckets, etc. How To Eliminate Breeding Sites Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters. Remove old tires, or drill drain holes in those use din playgrounds. Turn over or remove empty plastic pots. Pick up all beverage containers and cups. Check tarps on boats or other equipment that may collect water. Pump out bilge pumps on boats. Change water in birdbaths, animal feeding dishes and plant trays at least once a week. Remove vegetation or obstructions that prevent the flow of water in drainage ditches. For more information on mosquito-borne illnesses, breeding sites and other tips, visit the Florida Department of Healths website at www.myfloridaeh. com or visit the the Citrus County Mosquito Control District at www.citrus mosquito.com.

One son, Edgar Tolle III, died of cancer in 1975. Mrs. Tolle was born Sept. 18, 1925, in Crystal River to Hugh and Edna Eubanks Barco, both from pioneer Citrus County families. She attended school in Inverness and continued her education at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, graduating with a bachelors degree. She met Ed while at college and they were married March 14, 1946. As a mom, Mrs. Tolle was both loving and stern, from the time her children were young to their growing up into successful business people. She was the leader of our house, Fitzpatrick said. Mom was very strong with everything we did, our corporations, Heritage Village. She was a great businesswoman. She taught us everything as mothers do, but she lived it. That was the example I followed. When Moms happy, everybodys happy. Citrus County School Board member Ginger Bryant, who taught five or six of Mrs. Tolles grandchildren in Crystal River, recalled Mrs. Tolles grace. She was a grand lady, Bryant said. She lived a good life. She just exuded everything southern. Along with her husband, Mrs. Tolle was a force in the Citrus County Democratic Party for many years. She did so not with a heavy hand but, rather, with charm. When Kay spoke, it was with a smile and kindness, said state Sen. Charlie Dean, who grew up in Inverness and was a Democratic sheriff. If she was talking about some issue, youd better be listening because she knew what she was talking about. Former ChroniclePublisher David Arthurs said Mrs. Tolle deserved her standing. To my way of thinking she always had the best interest in the community at heart, Arthurs said. Fitzpatrick said her mother taught the children manners. Our family had always been into politics, she said. You behaved in a certain way. People are watching you! Mom had always been so strong. She was full of life and she loved her family. Mrs. Tolle died of pancreatic cancer. Doctors told her about two months ago that she had just a short time remaining. She amazed me, Fitzpatrick said. Im not sure I ever saw my mom shed a tear during that time. She handled it with grace. She made sure the details were taken care of and she wanted her family to come and visit her. I wouldnt trade that time for anything in the world. Of her mothers life, she added: It was an amazing journey.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

MOSQUITOContinued from Page A1 in the race. However, Dean said he is fond of Adams, whom he has known since Adams was a child. I know him to be a very honest man, Dean said. I have a great deal of admiration and respect how much he has matured. According to state Division of Corporation records, Dean is a director in companies that list Adams as vice president and Deans son, Charlie Dean Jr., as president. They are: Sumter Recycling and Solid Waste Disposal Inc.; Goodfellas Roll-Off Waste Disposal Inc.; Sumter Class I & Solid Waste Disposal Inc.; and ACMS Inc. Both Adams and Sen. Dean are listed as directors in a fifth company, 3Corp Management Inc. ACMS is a landfill in Lake Panasoffkee. According to Adams candidate financial disclosure form, ACMS is worth $2.4 million; Adams lists his total net worth at $5.7 million higher than any other commission candidate. As a citizen hes honest and hes approachable and hes sincere, Dean said. As a business partner hes very capable. As for sheriff candidates Steve Burch and Winn Webb, an organization called Nature Coast Conservative Coalition donated $500 each to their campaigns. The coalition is a committee of continuous existence that supports political candidates in Florida. Dean founded the committee in 2007; his son, Charlie Dean Jr., now is listed as its chairman. Dean, whose political battles with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy on funding for child-protection services are widely known, said he thinks both Burch and Webb are capable of beating the incumbent. Theyre two great Republicans, he said. Both are good law enforcement people. Dean said he would also support Hank Hemrick if he wins the Republican primary. I like Hank, he said. Hes a good man.Chronicle reporter Mike Wright can be reached at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. DEANContinued from Page A1 StateBRIEFS Firefighters rescue nine ducklingsBRADENTON Firefighters came to the rescue of nine ducklings stuck in a southwest Florida storm drain. A frantic male duck caught the attention of Don McLucas as he got into his car in Bradenton on Sunday. Then McLucas heard some noises coming from the nearby storm drain. The ducklings and their mother were caught behind the drains grate. McLucas went to the nearest firehouse for help. Capt. Matt Sawyer told The Herald that his firefighters have had to rescue ducklings before, but the small birds usually try to flee into even more hard-to-reach spaces. On Sunday, the firefighters removed the storm drains covers and climbed down to the ducks to lift them out one by one.Sea turtle nest count on the riseDAYTONA BEACH Wildlife officials said sea turtle nest counts are up, particularly on central Florida beaches. In Volusia County, turtles have dug 2,884 nests so far this year, up from 2,356 nests all last year. That includes nests dug on Canaveral National Seashore, which stretches into Brevard County. In Flagler County, turtles have dug 555 nests so far this year, compared with 444 in 2011. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission scientist Blair Witherington said Flagler and Volusia beaches help the state gauge how sea turtles are doing overall. Witherington told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that nest counts are up about 50 percent statewide over last year. From wire reports GOT A NEWS TIP?

We have a responsibility to balance an elite games with sport for all, Adams said. We try to make it as level a playing field as possible. That is more possible when national Olympic committees and sport federations receive government money. When they dont, or when there isnt enough money to go around, athletes have little choice but to go it alone eking out a living and scrambling for sponsorship deals when they can get them. That includes the United States. The U.S. Olympic Committee is a nonprofit that gets no help from the federal government. Nick Symmonds, a fourtime U.S. outdoor track champion in the 800-meter, auctioned a spot on his shoulder on eBay for $11,100 for a temporary tattoo with the name of the highest bidder. Hanson Dodge Creative, a marketing firm, made the winning bid, but Symmonds had to cover the shoulder because of IOC rules preventing athletes from hawking their brands during the Olympics. Japanese equestrian rider Kenki Sato has one of the more unusual jobs: Hes a monk at his familys Buddhist temple near Nagano, the site of the 1998 Winter Games. Sato acknowledged he was probably the only Olympian with such a profession, but said the discipline of his day job he sometimes spends 19 hours a day meditating helps him while hes riding. Before the competition starts, I concentrate. Im behaving more like a monk, he said. But of all the extracurricular jobs among the 2012 crop of Olympians, perhaps Logan Campbells raised the most eyebrows. The New Zealand taekwondo fighter opened a high-end brothel in 2009 in Auckland to finance his training and travel schedule ahead of the Olympics, so his family wouldnt have to bear the burden. Prostitution is legal in New Zealand. At the time, taekwondo wasnt getting any funding at all, Campbell said earlier this year. So it was pretty much to get good at the sport, you had to get international competition, and there wasnt any funding for us. Campbell, who competes Thursday, sold the brothel in 2010 after he was criticized by Taekwondo New Zealand and the national Olympic committee and, more importantly, after sponsors started funding the sport.

Associated PressJapans Kenki Sato and his horse Chippieh compete Monday in the equestrian cross-country stage at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Sato is a monk at his familys Buddhist temple. Even among Olympians, a tale of haves and have-nots Associated PressLONDON Over his remarkable career, Michael Phelps has struck sponsorship deals with Speedo, Subway, Under Armour athletic wear, Omega watches and Procter & Gamble. But not everyone at the London Games can be showered with corporate largesse like the most decorated Olympian of all time. Most work one, two, even seven jobs while finding time to train to face fully funded pros. In this battle of haves and have-nots at the London Games, the have-nots include a bartender, a Buddhist monk, a onetime brothel owner and a man renting his body. Irish boxer Darren ONeill quit his job teaching at Holy Trinity Primary School in Dublin to train full-time for the Olympics and isnt sure hell get the job back when he goes home. He also had to give up hurling, a rough-andtumble native Irish sport that combines elements of field hockey, rugby and soccer. It is dominant in his hometown, hurlingmad Kilkenny. I enjoyed the teaching as a release from boxing, too, and took a risk in leaving, he said. It was a tough decision, same as leaving the hurling, but boxing gave me more personal satisfaction. ONeill lost last week in his second bout, to Stefan Hartel of Germany, but hell go back to find a handpainted banner on the school roof that says GOOD LUCK MR. ONEILL. Lance Brooks, an American discus thrower, worked as a bouncer and bartender and whats known as a barbacker restocking the cooler and taking out the trash when he moved to Denver five years ago and started to train. He also worked Colorado Rockies baseball games, coached at a local high school, worked at an oil-change service and did construction all before his coach told him to cut out some of the jobs or lose his trainer. Mark Adams, a spokesman for the International Olympic Committee, said the IOC distributes more than 90 percent of its revenue from TV rights and sponsorship deals to national Olympic committees, in part to ease the burden on athletes. The IOC has its own program, Solidarity, that provides training, equipment and travel money for particularly needy athletes.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is quietly feuding with the GOP-controlled Legislature over who should have a say over more than $300 million intended to help homeowners. Florida is directly receiving $334 million as part of its share of a national $25 billion settlement with five of the nations largest mortgage lenders. This is separate from an estimated $8 billion also expected to go to help homeowners and borrowers in the state. The settlement was announced six months ago and finalized in early April. But since that time, Bondi has not announced any plans on how the states share of the money would be spent. Thats because Bondi the states top legal officer has asserted that her office can spend the money without first getting approval from state legislators. Legislative leaders, however, contend that Floridas constitution gives the Legislature the power to make spending decisions. I do think it has to be authorized by the Legislature, said Sen. J.D. Alexander, RLake Wales and the Senate budget chief. Alexander, however, said that legislators would likely give great deference to how Bondi wants to spend the money. Im sure there would be a general desire to be respectful of Attorney General Bondis leadership, he added. The settlement was announced back in February with great fanfare by the federal government and 49 of the nations attorney generals. The payout settles allegations of widespread robo-signing of foreclosure documents and other fraudulent practices involving loans to struggling homeowners. Florida, as one of the states hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis, received one of the largest shares of the landmark settlement. THE FINAL WORDING OF THE SETTLEMENT STATES THAT 10 PERCENT OF FLORIDAS SHARE SHALL BE PAID TO THE STATE AS A PENALTY, MEANING THE MONEY GOES DIRECTLY INTO STATE COFFERS. BUT THE REMAINING MONEY CANNOT BE RELEASED UNLESS BONDI ORDERS IT. That hasnt happened so far because Bondi and her staff have been holding meetings with legislative staff about the attorney generals insistence that she be allowed to spend the money without getting prior ap-STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST7, 2012 A9 000C43I www.chronicleonline.com Buy a Dinner and Help Fight Alzheimers!

Rick Scott will have a speaking role at the Republican National Convention later this month, the GOP confirmed after releasing a list of some of the speakers for the event. Scott has been mostly on the periphery of national GOP politics, and there have been questions about what role he would play in the RNC gathering in Tampa. Hes not as strong a public speaker as a number of other GOP leaders, and his message that the economy, at least here, is looking up and jobs are being created is at odds with the national message of the party and its presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who are trying to make the case that the jobs picture is dismal. The Tampa Bay Timesreported that the RNC is set to announce several speakers for the Aug. 27-30 convention, where Romney will be officially tapped as the partys nominee. A few other GOP governors will also speak, notably South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, both minorities. Haley is of Indian descent and Martinez is Hispanic as the Republicans try to reach out to minority voters. The partys last presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, is also set to appear, as are former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee; former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, the Timesreported. Still to be named is a keynote speaker. Pundits have floated several likely candidates for that coveted post, most prominently New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan has also been mentioned as someone likely to have a major role. Rubio has also been frequently mentioned as a possible running mate pick for Romney. The first speakers on the schedule were first reported by The Tampa Bay Timeslate Sunday and were confirmed to The Associated Press by Republican officials. Convention officials have not yet released the schedule. The outline doesnt include any mention of when Scott will get to speak, including whether it will be in one of the coveted primetime slots.

Associated PressMIAMI The historic but empty federal courthouse in downtown Miami is a costly symbol of the governments sluggishness at selling or finding new purposes for some 14,000 vacant or underused properties nationwide, Republican lawmakers said at a House panel hearing Monday. Unfortunately, this will be a pattern from sea to shining sea, said U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Its very frustrating. Mica and fellow Republican Reps. Jeff Denham of California and Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida held the fourth in a series of subcommittee hearings into federal property management practices inside the David W. Dyer Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, which has been vacant four years since a new courthouse opened across the street. The courthouse is owned by the General Services Administration, which said it has only about 124 excess properties on the governmentwide list of 14,000 cited by Mica. The property hearings, which continue Aug. 17 at the Los Angeles federal court complex, follow several previous GSA scandals that spotlighted costly staff conferences and payment of exorbitant bonuses to agency officials. The panel previously held hearings in the Washington, D.C., area spotlighting unused properties such as the Old Post Office Annex, the Cotton Annex and the Old Georgetown Plant. all of which are GSAowned and have sat vacant for years. Opened in 1933, the 166,577square-foot Dyer building is on the National Register of Historic Places. But it has been deteriorating for years and has an extensive mold problem in South Floridas hot and humid climate. Still, maintaining the vacant structure costs taxpayers about $1.2 million a year, Mica said. Among many other cases, the main courtroom where Mondays hearing was held was the site of the 1992 drug and racketeering conviction of former Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega and the 1973-74 tax evasion trial of mobster Meyer Lansky, who was acquitted. Last week, just as the hearing was announced, GSA said it filed a Request for Information asking Miami developers and the business community for suggestions on what to do with the Dyer building. It seems the GSA only takes action when we hold hearings, Denham said. John Smith, a regional commissioner for GSAs Public Buildings Service, said the original plan was to move other federal offices into the Dyer building but an estimated $60 million renovation cost halted that plan. Under the new proposal, if new tenants moved in it would still likely cost at least $10 million to separate the Dyer building from other judicial offices in the downtown complex. Were looking at any and all possibilities, Smith told the panel. Smith added that 34 GSA real estate assets in the Southeast region have been disposed of in the past 10 years, generating about $24 million. Associated PressThe David W. Dyer courthouse, a vacant federal building, is seen Monday in Miami. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., held a hearing Monday at the courthouse where they questioned General Services Administration (GSA) and U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) officials during an ongoing investigation to stop the federal government from wasting billions of dollars of taxpayers money by sitting on its assets and mismanaging valuable federal-owned properties.

Best Buy founder offers to buy company, take it privateNEW YORK Best Buys co-founder is looking to make a buy of his own, offering to take the electronics seller private only months after leaving as the companys chairman. Best Buy said it would consider the offer but called it highly conditional. And analysts are skeptical that former Chairman Richard Schulzes opening offer of $24 to $26 per share would get a deal done and that it could be tricky to line up investment firms to help pay for it. Over the past year, Best Buy has announced a major restructuring plan and fired CEO Brian Dunn amid allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a female employee.Knight avoids collapse with $400 million lifelineNEW YORK Knight Capital Group survived a near-death experience on Monday, lining up Wall Street firms to lend it badly needed cash after the brokerage lost $440 million last week when a malfunction in its trading system flooded the market with erroneous trades. But the rescue, which came down to the wire, had a steep price: control of the firm. And its still not certain that Knight will make it through the episode intact. Knights new investors will gain a 73 percent stake in the company and three board seats. The value of current shareholders stake will also be heavily diluted.USDA: Corn, soy crops slightly worse amid droughtCHAMPAIGN, Ill. The Department of Agriculture says the condition of countrys corn and soybean crops hasnt gotten much worse in the past week but large portions remain in poor shape amid widespread drought.

European aerospace giant Airbus said Monday it plans to double the $12 billion it now spends with U.S. suppliers amid strong airplane sales, explaining the company has a backlog that is disturbingly healthy. Airbus America Chairman Allan McArtor told representatives from 114 companies at an aviation supplier conference in Kansas that 40 percent of what his company uses to build its planes comes from U.S. companies. Kansas aerospace industry encompasses more than 450 companies and accounts for more than 32,000 direct jobs. The France-based company has an engineering center in Wichita where it employs more than 350 people, making the Wichita facility its largest engineering center outside of Europe.Justice Department probes HCA cardiology careHCA Holdings Inc. said Monday the Justice Department wants information about heart procedures performed at some of its locations. The nations biggest hospital operator also said in an unusual posting on its website that The New York Times may soon run news stories on patient care at its hospitals. The Times declined to comment when contacted by The Associated Press. HCA said the civil division of the U.S. Attorneys office in Miami has asked for information about reviews that assess the medical necessity of some interventional cardiology services.Teva Pharmaceutical discloses SEC bribery investigationNEW YORK Teva Pharmaceutical, the largest generic drug company in the world, said it is the target of a federal bribery investigation into its business in Latin America. Teva said the Securities and Exchange Commission has subpoenaed documents and is looking into its compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which makes it illegal for people or companies to make payments to officials of foreign governments in order to get or keep business.From wire reportsBUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST7, 2012 A11 Advance Capital I: Balanc p 16.81+.03 RetInc 9.00+.01 Alger Funds B: SmCapGr 6.76+.06 AllianceBern A: BalanA p 16.78+.04 GlbThGrA p 59.51+.93 SmCpGrA 38.04+.36 AllianceBern Adv: LgCpGrAd 29.39+.22 AllianceBern B: GlbThGrB t 51.07+.81 GrowthB t 26.82+.15 SCpGrB t 30.34+.28 AllianceBern C: SCpGrC t 30.50+.28 Allianz Fds Instl: NFJDvVl 12.38+.04 SmCpVl 30.21+.14 Allianz Funds C: AGICGrthC 26.22+.05 Amer Beacon Insti: LgCapInst 20.87+.07 Amer Beacon Inv: LgCap Inv 19.78+.07 Ameri Century 1st: Growth 27.73+.02 Amer Century Adv: EqGroA p 23.77+.05 EqIncA p 7.82...

The Treasury Department auctioned $32 billion in three-month bills at a discount rate of 0.100 percent, down from 0.110 percent last week. Another $28 billion in six-month bills was auctioned at a discount rate of 0.135 percent, down from 0.145 percent last week. The three-month rate was the lowest since threemonth bills averaged 0.095 on July 23. The six-month rate was the lowest since these bills averaged 0.130 on June 4. The discount rates reflect that the bills sell for less than face value. For a $10,000 bill, the three-month price was $9,997.47 while a six-month bill sold for $9,993.17. That would equal an annualized rate of 0.101 percent for the three-month bills and 0.137 percent for the six-month bills. Separately, the Federal Reserve said Monday that the average yield for oneyear Treasury bills, a popular index for making changes in adjustable-rate mortgages, was 0.17 percent last week, unchanged from the previous week. Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. stocks edged higher on a day marked by uncharacteristic quiet following a turbulent week. In the absence of major economic news, stocks were riding a tailwind of optimism from the most recent U.S. job numbers released last week and hope for more action by European authorities to address that regions debt crisis. On Monday, beleaguered stock trading company Knight Capital Group said it has lined up $400 million in financing that will allow the firm to continue to operate. Knight was fighting for survival after a disastrous software glitch in its systems sent the trading of dozens of stocks into chaos last week. Best Buys stock soared after its founder offered to buy the company. Markets fell the first four days of last week after investors were disappointed by the lack of specific action from central banks in Europe and the U.S. to support the economy. The Dow lost 197 points from Monday through Thursday. The Dow soared 217 points on Friday, however, following a surprisingly strong jobs report. The U.S. economy generated 163,000 jobs last month, the fastest pace since February and far more than economists were expecting. The upturn was seen as a sign that the U.S. may be resilient enough to pull out of a midyear slump and grow modestly, even as the rest of the world slows down. Investors drove markets higher Monday on hopes that the positive momentum will continue. Stock indexes also rose in Europe. Speculation has been building that the European Central Bank will support struggling countries like Spain and Italy by buying bonds issued by those governments. Germanys DAX and the CAC-40 in France both rose a little less than 1 percent. Spains IBEX 35 soared 4.4 percent despite a five-hour blackout from a technical problem that halted trading for much of the day. Mutual fund managers and hedge funds have sizable holdings in cash and they need to put those to work, said Richard Cripps, chief investment officer for Stifel Financial. Theres optimism over the progress made in Europe and also constructive news from the U.S. economy. Knight Capitals stock fell 98 cents, or 24 percent, to $3.07 Monday. Its down 70 percent since last Tuesday, the day before a software malfunction caused its computer systems to send erroneous orders flooding into the market. Knight said a group of investors agreed to buy $400 million of preferred stock that can be converted into a 73 percent stake in the firm. Knight takes orders for stock trades from brokers like TD Ameritrade and ETrade and banks. It then routes them to the exchanges where stocks are traded, like the New York Stock Exchange.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 Conservatives worry that if Barack Obama is reelected, todays trillionplus federal deficits and ballooning national debt will continue to grow far into the future. Conservatives worry that if Obama is re-elected, the implementation of Obamacare will lay the foundation for a single-payer federal health care system. And conservatives worry that if the president is re-elected, the Justice Department will continue to crush state initiatives dealing with issues like immigration and voter ID; that the presidents ideology-driven green energy programs will lead to billions more in wasted spending; and that Obama will undermine desperately needed entitlement reform. All those are serious concerns. But perhaps the biggest conservative worry about a second Obama administration involves something far bigger: that after eight years of President Obama, more Americans will be dependent on government than ever before, with still more on track to become dependent in the future. Three examples: First, on July 12, the Obama administration issued a directive that could result in the removal of the work requirement from the landmark 1996 welfare reform law. The work requirement was the heart of that reform, and removing it would mean, in the words of conservative welfare expert Robert Rector, the end of welfare reform as we know it. It will likely also mean more people on welfare, should Barack Obama who has opposed welfare reform from the very beginning win a second term. Second, the Obama administration has made a far-reaching effort to increase the number of Americans on food stamps. As National Reviews Rich Lowry reported recently, the number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 17 million in 2000, to 30 million in 2008, to 46 million today. That increase is far more than is warranted by the economic downturn. The Obama administration wants that number to go even higher. To cite one example, the U.S. Department of Agriculture which now spends two-thirds of its budget on food stamps and other welfare programs created an aggressive Spanish-language outreach program to encourage immigrants, whether legal or not, to enroll for food stamps. (Lest anyone put all the blame on Obama, it should be said that former President George W. Bush also increased the number of Americans on food stamps, one of a number of Bush initiatives that made him unpopular with conservatives.) Finally, a key purpose of Obamacare is to increase the number of Americans covered by Medicaid, the federal health system for the poor. Obamacare expands Medicaid coverage to those with up to 133 percent of poverty-level income; for the first few years at least, all the extra cost will be paid by the federal government. More people on welfare, food stamps, Medicaid; that has been the trend under the first Obama administration and most certainly would be the trend perhaps an accelerated trend under a second Obama term. The economic downturn undoubtedly meant that more people would receive temporary government assistance, but the effect of Obamas policies has been to expand dependence far beyond that. A few months ago, conservatives laughed when the Obama campaign came up with The Life of Julia: A look at how President Obamas policies help one woman over her lifetime. Obama told the story of a fictional girl who received Head Start before kindergarten; got an Obamaprovided $10,000 tax credit to go to college; got a job as a Web designer; and enjoyed free contraceptives courtesy of Obamacare; got a government loan to start a small business; and ultimately headed into retirement and coverage by Social Security and Medicare. Conservatives scoffed at the whole thing. Julias world ... may be the most self-revealing parody of liberalism ever conceived, wrote columnist Charles Krauthammer, noting that Julia is swaddled and subsidized throughout her life by an all-giving government and the only time shes on her own is at her gravesite. But the Obama campaign is entirely serious about ensuring that Americans spend much of their lives receiving one government benefit or another. And if the president is reelected, Obamas expanded nanny state will be here to stay. As the administration well knows, once the government confers benefits on citizens, withdrawing those benefits can be enormously unpopular, a move few politicians will wish to risk. So in four more years, Barack Obama could make great strides toward the goal of making more and more Americans dependent on government. Yes, issues like debt and deficits are important. But dependency could be the biggest issue of all on the ballot this November.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner. That which deceives us and does us harm also undeceives and does us good.Joseph Roux, 1886 A more dependent nation? CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................editorMike Arnold ..........................................HR directorSandra Frederick ............................managing editorCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest member ENDORSEMENT Joe Meek deserves second term In the District 3 race for Citrus County Commission, incumbent Joe Meek faces businessman Shannon Heathcock in the Republican primary election. The winner of the primary will be elected to office. Heathcock, the owner of Dash Transport, is a veteran, high school graduate and is a strong supporter of youth sports. Hes an advocate for eliminating duplication in government services and opposes any functions of government that compete with the private sector. While he advocates eliminating government red tape, would like a policy encouraging veteran-owned businesses that could secure government contracts, and touts mobility fees as an option to replace transportation impact fees, he offers few specificson how to achieve those goals and to what degree they would positively impact the county. While incumbents have track records that can be dissected, incumbent Meek uses the commissions actions during his first term in office as the springboard to why he deserves another term. In the past four years, Meek has jumped into the role of county commissioner headfirst. His involvement and accomplishments are impressive. Meek, who has a B.S. degree from the University of South Florida and who owns JMC Development and Investment Corp. which provides capital and investment as well as assistance to build affordable homes points to these accomplishments of the commission as actions for voters to consider:Cutting $44 million from the county budget while maintaining services.Eliminating more than 100 government jobs.Lowering impact, building and redevelopment fees.Reducing discretionary spending on purchases and programs. As with Shannon Heathcock, Meek says hes seeking ways to further streamline government operations to increase efficiency. In his role as a commissioner and concerned citizen, Meek has served as president of the Economic Development Council, advocating the need for diversification of the local economy. He is chairman of the Citrus, Levy, Marion Workforce Board; a member of the Value Adjustment Board, the Council of Governors of the Tampa Bay Partnership, the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization, the Chamber of Commerce, YMCA Advisory Board, We Care Food Pantry and is a YMCA Capital Campaign Board member. As a young father and native Citrus Countian, Joe Meek seeks to foster a community that will be attractive to todays youths, causing them to consider pursuing their careers in the county they know as home. Shannon Heathcock seems earnest in his desire to serve the citizens of Citrus County, but it is Joe Meek who has a clear track record of contributing to the betterment of the community as a citizen and as an official. Voters are encouraged to elect Joe Meek to a second term as the District 3 Citrus County commissioner. THE ISSUE:Citrus County Commission District 3.OUR OPINION:Re-elect incumbent Joe Meek.

COMMENTSwill be edited for length, libel, personal or political attacks and good taste. Editors will cut libelous material. OPINIONS expressed are purely those of the callers. Byron YorkOTHER VOICES CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Endorsement REBUTTAL I would like to thank the Chroniclefor the opportunity to respond to its endorsement of the incumbent in the County Commission District 1 race where I am the challenger. The basis of the endorsement is rather simple and straightforward, so my response will be as well. This race is about a clear difference between two candidates. The Chroniclesaid, We endorse Damato because we believe county government has made good progress over the past four years. The editorial Board also said, Damato has done a good job during his eight years on the commission. My response is if you truly believe that, then you should vote for the incumbent. But if you do not agree with those statements, then I would like to suggest me, Ron Kitchen, as someone with a positive proactive plan and the demonstrated experience to help turn around the current situation of Citrus County. The Chroniclesaid the following of my campaign: Ron Kitchen, a veteran city official from Crystal River who also has served as mayor, is a serious candidate. He has articulated a strong position in the campaign and does a very good job of connecting with disaffected voters Kitchen is critical of county government and promises change. He favors across-the-board budget cuts and has found support from those critical of Damatos actions on such issues as Port Citrus, Meadowcrest and Ottawa. Over the past two years, I have listened to people all over the county. Most people I have talked with believe decisions are made before the public is heard. Most believe what the incumbent calls accomplishments were done deals and the outcome was determined well in advance and benefited only a few powerful friends and supporters. Also I have found that most believe that deficit spending is out of control and the incumbent has no plan to stop it, other than tax increases. What I am asking citizens to do is very direct; You be the judge. Please go to the Supervisor of Elections website at www.votecitrus.com and look at my resume and background and that of the incumbent. Then compare and you, not the Chronicle, make the decision on who you think would make the best commissioner for the next four years. During your deliberations, please consider the following: The county has not had a balanced budget in the past four years and even this year is continuing to pay the bills by taking from trust funds and reserves with no plan to cut the spending. In just the past three years spending exceeded revenues by over $30 million. Two million dollars was borrowed and added to the debt to renovate a building in Meadowcrest that the county does not own, for a need that is questionable. Government fund debt is up 37 percent in the last four years and since 2004 the population of the county has increased by 12 percent, but the budget has increased by over 100 percent. If you think this is a good job and wish to continue in this direction, then the incumbent is your man. If, on the other hand, you would like someone who: asks the hard questions and listens with an open mind to all points of view; someone who has a proven record of working with other elected officials to reduce spending and produce positive results; and someone who will always treat you as the purpose of his work and not an interruption of it, then I believe I am your choice. I would appreciate your vote for me, Ron Kitchen ,in this election. The choice in this race is very clear and most important the choice is yours.Ronald Kitchen Jr. Republican candidate County Commission District 1 Ron Kitchen: You be the judge Great publicityOn Wednesday, Aug. 1, several of my friends and I went to Spring Hill to have lunch at the Chick-fil-A on Cortez Boulevard. What a sight to behold! There was a very long line of autos in the drive-through line, so many we decided to go inside. We had to park across the street in the mall parking lot and walk over. This too was a very long line, and we didnt realize how long until after we finally got inside the building, where the line zigzagged around the tables. Credit goes to those who work there. They had their hands full, and then some. Never without a smile and a word of welcome. Everyone was enjoying the moment, talking about everything from the reason so many of us were there to the upcoming elections in November. Military personnel, firefighters, veterans and We the People had a great lunch together. The food was delicious, the service good, and the reason excellent. That evening in Tampa, I was approached by several others who told me about their experiences in Tampa and how wonderful the turnout was. Dan Cathy could not have paid enough for the great publicity he is receiving from this event.Robert H.

Rusnak sensibleI am responding to your editorial of July 22, regarding the county budget. I am afraid that I do not understand how our county commissioners can go happily along without heeding all the warnings that are before them. We cannot keep raiding our reserves and legal funds, because they too will run dry. And what if we need them? The one answer I see is to elect Teddi Rusnak. She is the one person, if elected to the commission, who can set our financial sails on the right course. If you doubt what I am saying I would encourage you to go to teddi4commish.com and listen to what she has to say about zero-based budgets. She makes a great deal of sense, so I urge you to listen to what she says and then on the 14th vote for Teddi Rusnak, District 5, for commissioner.Hedda Smith LecantoKudos to HimmelAt times we have all encountered frustrating moments when attempting to contact various offices or companies only to find we are placed on hold and compelled to listen to music they have selected for their phone system. If you want to start your day with a pleasant experience, by all means contact the main office, or any school, in the Citrus County School District and you will have the distinct pleasure of listening to the classic God Bless America while holding for your party to answer. You will definitely feel a sense of unity and be reminded of how fortunate we are to live in this free society, the United States of America. Kudos to our superintendent of schools, Sam Himmel, for implementing this practice in our school district and hopefully every school district across America will adopt the same practice.Arnold Virgilio Vietnam veteran Mary-Ann Virgilio InvernessBurch inspiresIt is our pleasure to endorse Chief Steven Burch as your best choice for Citrus County sheriff. Although each of the Republican candidates brings their own skill set of talent and experience, Chief Burch possesses the required qualifications that are needed to perform in this highly specialized position. He served as the police chief of the Crystal River Police Department (CRPD) from Aug. 30, 2004, to Jan. 31, 2008, coming to our city with 24 years of service with the Clearwater Police Department, where he served as a lieutenant and Traffic Section commander. His arrival during one of the worst hurricane seasons in our history was Crystal Rivers first opportunity to observe his exquisite leadership abilities. His level of dedication to the department, and to the citizens they served, was commendable, demonstrating a commitment to community policing, improved officer training, and public safety. He was a role model in our city, working to improve the lives of citizens in all socioeconomic classes, and sought grants and innovative methods to accomplish goals with minimal financial impact to our budget. His administrative abilities were also utilized outside of his own department, having been appointed to act as city manager in the absence of our administrator, and served on several local and statewide committees. During his tenure we saw increases in arrests, citations and forfeitures, which were accompanied with corresponding reductions in crime and alcohol related crashes. Chief Burch was an inspiration to the department and made improvements in training, equipment and policies. He brings to the table the education, experience and dedication to the integrity of the law enforcement career that is needed in Citrus County. Please give him serious consideration as you choose who you will vote for in this primary.John and Gail Kostelnick Crystal RiverWhy Steve Burch?I have been a friend of Steven Burch for some time now and have grown to know him on both a professional and personal level, and it is with this understanding that I can honestly say that he is the right person for the job of sheriff of Citrus County. Not only does Mr. Burch have all the necessary requirements for this position, but he has a tremendous desire to serve the people of Citrus County and I am confident that he will be accessible to the people. While working with Steven Burch as a private investigator for Quick Search Investigations, he has proven to be dependable, hard working, knowledgeable, honest, and passionate, and these are but a few of the many words that can be used to describe him. I completely support Steve Burch and the platform in which he is running. The citizens of Citrus County deserve better, and Mr. Burch is that man.Luis Olivero HernandoSupport DamatoAs a longtime resident and retired business owner here in Citrus County, I would like to say I am proud to call Dennis Damato my friend. I am also pleased to have him represent me as my commissioner. Over the years I have worked with Mr. Damato on civic projects and boards. I always had a great appreciation for his dedication, input and willingness to get the job done. His approach as our commissioner will assure him of my vote. I would ask you, too, to join me in his re-election.Ron Dillon Sr. Pine RidgeFaith in Kitchen The primary election is nearing and District 1 of the County Commission will be decided at the primary this year. After attending forums and listening to the candidates, plus looking back at their past county activity history, I feel strongly that Ron Kitchen is the only candidate that truly has county constituents foremost in his mind. He, in my opinion, is the only candidate of District 1 who will go into a debate with an open mind and listen, repeat, listen to the people before casting his vote. That is refreshing. I became a resident of Crystal River in 1999, becoming active in city and county politics almost right away because of issues in the city. Many issues were fiercely fought at that time as the city was so divided. Similar to the county today. Mr. Kitchen always listened to the people, giving them a chance to air their views before commenting. In the beginning, as mayor, he could not vote, but was given that power later on in a referendum, proving that the people had faith in him. This is exactly what our county needs now. Someone who will not only listen but actually hear our opinions. The people care about the budget, the port, Meadowcrest, Ottawa, the sewers, the CCSO budget and on and on. We want to not only be heard, but listened to also. I guarantee that Ron Kitchen will not be looking at the ceiling, reading a paper or in general looking bored as we, the public, speak. He will hear you. As I said, that will be refreshing. If you want to be heard and listened to, then vote for Ron Kitchen for District 1.Gail Jannarone Crystal RiverAdams best choiceIn year 2000, three Republicans ran in the Citrus County Commission District 5 race: Millie King, Scott Adams, and Jim McIntosh. Adams ran a clean and smart campaign, and he won the primary. At that time, winning required a 50 percent-plus-one tally, and Adams lost to King in a runoff. Though Adams was somewhat of a diamond in the rough in 2000, looking back, I now believe he was the best candidate running in District 5, and that includes the Democrat who eventually won the seat. In his youth, Adams admits to having been a bit of a scalawag. He was nothing worse, and records show that; moreover, hes more than a decade past his devil-may-care stage. Thus, I am endorsing businessman Scott Adams for Citrus County Commission District 5. Its not because his time has come, but because its our time to elect a type other than what we have had for too many years. Believe me: Scott Adams is a credible, common sense guy who, as commissioner, will stand up against the entrenched, highly predisposed status quo. Please vote for Scott Adams.James M. McIntosh LecantoScott honestAs a neighbor to Scott Adams, I have found Scott to be honest, generous, and a man whose word truly is his bond. Citrus County born, Mr. Adams, or Scott, as he prefers to be called, has started and operated several businesses in the area, created jobs, written paychecks, and has learned the value of a dollar in the process. He is not afraid to negotiate or litigate to protect Citrus County residents from unnecessary taxes or foolishly spent tax revenues. His goal is to make life better for all of us. I am voting for Scott Adams and I hope you will too.

The policy is also responsible for increased food prices and shortages. Now that we have a drought, our food prices and gasoline prices will go through the roof. The government will again do their usual dance against oil companies why we shouldnt drill for more oil and refusing to build the Canadian pipeline.

A pickup truck used to conduct a busy Iowa livestock auction sped into a crowd without warning Monday, killing one person and injuring at least five others, authorities said. Joplin mosque razed in blazeJOPLIN, Mo. Investigators said it will take a few days to determine if the fire that destroyed a southwest Missouri mosque was arson. Michael Kaste, special agent in charge of the FBIs Kansas City office, said Monday the agency is taking the investigation into the fire at the Islamic Society of Joplin very seriously. He said the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms together have about 30 investigators working to determine the cause. No injuries were reported. Jasper County officials said patrols at the mosque had been stepped up since a July 4 fire there was determined to be arson. The FBI has released a video of a man appearing to set the July 4 fire and is offering a $15,000 reward in that case.

Japan marks date of Hiroshima bombingTOKYO Japan marked the 67th anniversary of the worlds first atomic bomb attack with a ceremony Monday that was attended by a grandson of Harry Truman, the U.S. president who ordered the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. About 50,000 people gathered in Hiroshimas peace park near the epicenter of the 1945 blast that destroyed most of the city and killed as many as 140,000 people. A second atomic bombing Aug. 9 that year in Nagasaki killed tens of thousands more and prompted Japan to surrender to the World War II Allies. The ceremony, attended by representatives of about 70 countries, began with the ringingof a temple bell and a moment of silence. Flowers were placed before Hiroshimas eternal flame, which is the parks centerpiece. Trumans grandson, Clifton Truman Daniel, and the grandson of a radar operator who was on both of the planes that dropped the atomic bombs, joined in the memorial. Ari Besers grandfather, Jacob Beser, was the only person who directly took part in both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.

Associated PressOAK CREEK, Wis. Before he strode into a Sikh temple with a 9mm handgun and multiple magazines of ammunition, Wade Michael Page played in white supremacist heavy metal bands with names such as Definite Hate and End Apathy. The bald, heavily tattooed bassist was a 40-year-old Army veteran who trained in psychological warfare before he was demoted and discharged more than a decade ago. A day after he killed six worshippers at the suburban Milwaukee temple, fragments of Pages life emerged in public records and interviews. But his motive was still largely a mystery. So far, no hatefilled manifesto has emerged, nor any angry blog or ranting Facebook entries to explain the attack. Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards suggested Monday that investigators might never know for certain why the lone attacker targeted a temple full of strangers. We have a lot of information to decipher, to put it all together before we can positively tell you what that motive is if we can determine that, Edwards said. Page, who was shot to death by police, joined the Army in 1992 and was discharged in 1998. Page wrote frequently on white supremacistwebsites, describing himself as a member of the Hammerskins Nation, a skinhead group rooted in Texas that has offshoots in Australia and Canada, according to the SITE Monitoring Service, a Maryland-based private intelligence firm that searches the Internet for terrorist and other extremist activity. In November, Page challenged a poster who indicated he would leave the U.S. if Herman Cain were elected president, writing in reply, Stand and fight, dont run. In an April message, Page said: Passive submission is indirect support to the oppressors. Stand up for yourself and live the 14 words, a reference to a common whitesupremacist mantra. Page joined the military in Milwaukee in 1992 and was a repairman for the Hawk missile system before switching jobs to become one of the Armys psychological operations specialists assigned to a battalion at Fort Bragg, N.C. He never deployed overseas in that role, Army spokesman George Wright said. Page was demoted in June 1998 for getting drunk while on duty and going AWOL, two defense officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. Page entered the temple as several dozen people prepared for Sunday services. He opened fire without saying a word. The president of the temple died defending the house of worship he founded. Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, managed to find a simple butter knife in the temple and attempted to stab the gunman before being shot twice, his son said Monday. Amardeep Singh Kaleka said FBI agents hugged him, shook his hand and told him his father was a hero. Whatever time he spent in that struggle gave the women time to get cover, he said. Federal officials said the gun used in the attack had been legally purchased. Page was issued five pistol-purchase permits in 2008 in North Carolina, paying a $5 fee for each. Gunman in temple attack was white supremacist Wade Page NEW DELHI The Sikh faith has roughly 27 million followers worldwide, and the vast majority live in India. Here are some answers about the religion and its history. Q: How did the Sikh religion originate? A: It was founded in 1469 by Guru Nanak, who preached monotheism and equality, in reaction to the Hindu caste system. Q: What is Sikhs historical role in India? A: Sikhs at one point controlled a powerful kingdom in what is today western India and parts of Pakistan. The British captured it in a bloody war in 1849. Around that time, the British army formed a Sikh regiment that still exists in the Indian military. Though Sikhs comprise about 2 percent of Indias population, they make up a far higher percentage of the military. Q: What are the customs of their faith? A: Traditional Sikh men dont cut their beards or their hair. Most cover their heads in yards of cloth elaborately wrapped into a turban. Sikh men all take the name Singh, meaning lion. Q: What is their current role? A: Sikhs hold some of Indias most important positions. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Army Chief Gen. Bikram Singh, and Montek Singh Ahluwalia, head of the financially powerful planning commission, are all Sikh. Their temples, or gurdwaras, often run free kitchens giving food to all comers. They are sometimes found on street corners during hot summer months handing out cool drinks of ice, milk and rosewater to passing drivers. Q: What has been the reaction in India to the shooting at a U.S. temple? A: Giani Gurbachan Singh, the Sikhs highest-ranking priest, called the shooting a security lapse by the U.S. government and called on worshippers in the United States to adopt all possible security measures at their temples, including closed-circuit cameras.Associated PressSikhism: A primer Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. NASA celebrated the precision landing of a rover on Mars and marveled over the missions first photographs Monday grainy, black-and-white images of Martian gravel, a mountain at sunset and, most exciting of all, the spacecrafts white-knuckle plunge through the Red Planets atmosphere. Curiosity, a roving laboratory the size of a compact car, landed right on target late Sunday night after an eight-month, 352-millionmile journey. Cheers and applause echoed through NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and engineers hugged, highfived and thrust their fists in the air after signals from space indicated the vehicle survivedthe harrowing descent through Mars pinkish atmosphere. Everybody in the morning should be sticking their chests out and saying, Thats my rover on Mars, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said on NASA TV. Extraordinary efforts were needed for the landing because the rover weighs one ton, and the thin Martian atmosphere offers little friction to slow a spacecraft down. Curiosity had to go from 13,000 mph to zero in seven minutes, unfurling a parachute, then firing rockets to brake. In a Hollywood-style finish, cables delicately lowered it to the ground at 2 mph. We have ended one phase of the mission much to our enjoyment, mission manager Mike Watkins said. But another part has just begun. The nuclear-powered Curiosity will dig into the Martian surface to analyze whats there and hunt for some of the molecular building blocks of life, including carbon. It wont start moving for a couple of weeks, because all the systems on the $2.5 billion rover have to be checked out. Color photos, panoramas and video will start coming in the next few days. But first NASA had to use tiny cameras designed to spot hazards in front of Curiositys wheels. So early images of gravel and shadows abounded. A high-resolution camera on the orbiting 7-yearold Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, flying 211 miles directly above the plummeting Curiosity, snapped a photo of the rover dangling from its parachute about a minute from touchdown. The parachutes design can be made out in the photo.

SPORTS BRIEFSJets players involved in scuffle during practiceCORTLAND, N.Y. Tebowmania turned into Wrestlemania for the New York Jets during one big training camp throwdown. About 20 players were involved in a brief brawl during a chippy practice Monday after running back Joe McKnight and safety DAnton Lynn tangled after a play. Lynn, the son of Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn, shoved McKnight out of bounds after a swing pass from Greg McElroy. An angry McKnight then fired the football at Lynn. That was a first, Lynn said. Thats never happened to me before, so I lost my temper for a second. The two got into it, with McKnight charging Lynn and throwing a punch that didnt land. If youre fighting, I mean, are you going to just love-tap him? McKnight said. I mean, youre going to try to hit him. Its a fight. Offensive and defensive players ran over to the two and a pileup ensued, with players rolling through advertisement placards and into an area where reporters were watching. Several reporters scattered as the players jumped on each other and wrestled a few feet in front of a barricade where fans sit. Coach Rex Ryan, along with several players, including Tim Tebow, ran over to break up the melee by pulling players off the pile. Meanwhile, several other players jokingly acted as if they were taking swings at each other. McKnight said Ryan told him: Keep playing hard. It all lasted about a minute, and the Jets (No. 17 in the AP Pro32) went back to team drills as if nothing happened with none of the players suffering any apparent injuries. The two said they would talk to each other, and things would be smoothed over.Seminoles start practice with Penn State transferTALLAHASSEE Florida State started preseason practice Monday with one big addition and an electrifying loss. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said offering a scholarship to 6-foot-4, 252-pound tight end Kevin Haplea, a Penn State transfer, was an easy decision and that he had plenty of candidates to replace speedy, shifty senior Greg Reid. Fisher, who said he sensed a quiet confidence among his players, last week dismissed Reid for violating team rules three weeks after he was charged with marijuana possession. Reid not only started at cornerback, but had emerged as Florida States best punt returner since Deion Sanders.From wire reports Olympics/ B2 Baseball/ B3 Scoreboard/B3 Lottery numbers/B3 Lottery payouts/B4 Entertainment/ B4 US women defeat Canada. / B2 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Sharrone sweeps race Special to the ChronicleSixteen Mini Stocks started the night of hot racing action with time-trial qualifying for the Floral City Animal Clinic 50 lap feature. After each driver took their shot at the time clock, Jeremy Sharrone (32) showed he knew the fast way around, taking top qualifier honors with a fast lap of 16.06 seconds. Jeff Eberly (01) was the second fastest qualifier with a lap of 16.18 seconds, and Ashlee Williamson third with a 16.33-second lap. Once qualifying was over, the drivers starting positions were in the hands of the fans the starting field invert would be up to the fans. To no ones surprise, the fans wanted a full-field invert, leaving Sharrone starting in the very last row. Jeff Eisenhauer (73) benefitted from the inversion, starting on the pole position alongside Matthew Jenkins (10), who was making his first start of 2012. Eisenhauer jumped out to an early lead, but third starter Shawn Jenkins (43) made his way to the top spot by lap 3. The first caution flew at lap 16 for the stalled car of Matthew Jenkins, and reset the field for a restart. Shawn Jenkins scooted away on the restart, but behind him the top three qualifiers were coming fast. Lap 18 saw Jenkins out front, but Eberly had made his way to the third position. Lap 28 saw the second and final caution of the night for a spin involving Jesse Mallory (50). Jenkins had his hands full, as the top three qualifiers were right on his tail for the restart. Once back to green, Sharrone made his way by Eberly and Williamson to take the second spot with only 12 laps left. Sharrone set his sights on the leader Jenkins, and went to work. Sharrone looked for racing room with the leader, and finally found a hole on lap 43, moving to the lead. Eberly followed Sharrone by Jenkins, and tried to hang with the new leader.

US racks up wins Durant, US men roll over Argentina 126-97 Associated PressLONDON Kevin Durant shot the U.S. mens Olympic basketball team out of trouble, and right into the top seed in their group. Durant scored 17 of his 28 points during the Americans explosive 42point third quarter, turning a onepoint game into a blowout that sent the U.S. soaring into the quarterfinals with a 126-97 victory over Argentina on Monday night. The NBA scoring champion matched the Argentines total in the period, going 5 of 6 from 3-point range, the last one from beyond 25 feet. The Americans didnt stop shooting and scoring until Carmelo Anthony made a 3-pointer in the final second of the quarter while taking what he and the U.S. bench right behind him felt was a cheap shot from Argentinas Facundo Campazzo, setting off an exchange of words and technical fouls. The Americans (5-0) will play Australia (3-2) in a quarterfinal game Wednesday. LeBron James added 18 points, getting the Americans first seven of the third quarter before Durant took over. Chris Paul finished with 17. Two nights after surviving their first real test in a 99-94 victory over Lithuania, it seemed the Americans might be headed for another tight finish. Argentina shot 56 percent in the first half and the U.S. led just 60-59. Minutes later, it was effectively over. Durants 3-pointer after James surge gave the U.S. 10 points in 2:10 of the second half, and he made back-to-back 3s midway through the Suhr brings home pole vault gold for US Associated PressLONDON Jenn Suhr walked with a purpose over to the stands to see her husband, who gingerly wrapped an American flag around her shoulders while she sobbed into his chest. Yes, theyve come a long way together. From training in a pair of huts connected together to form a jumping pit to winning an Olympic gold medal on her sports grandest stage. Suhr, who won the silver medal in Beijing and has since fought through an Achilles injury and a long, mysterious, sometimes-debilitating illness that turned out to be a gluten allergy, got the Olympic gold she needed to round out her resume. Its very emotional, she said. Its something you work very hard for for four years. And heartbreak and joy and some more heartbreak. To overcome it and come out on top, is something that whenever I thought of, I started crying. I knew it was going to be emotional. She vaulted 15 feet, 7 inches to defeat Cubas Yarisley Silva, who cleared the same height but lost on a tiebreaker because she had one more miss in the competition. Suhr also beat twotime defending Olympic champion Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia, who failed to become the first woman to win the same individual track and field event at three consecutive Olympics. Isinbayeva settled for bronze with a vault of 15-5 (4.70). To beat Yelena and her resume and her record, its an honor, Suhr said. Thats the only thing I can say, to have someone so good in the field and come out on top, it really is an honor. Its a special title in that situation.

Page B2TUESDAY, AUGUST 7, 2012 Associated PressMANCHESTER, England The U.S. womens soccer team is back in the Olympic gold medal match after a wild come-from-behind 4-3 win over Canada with a goal in the final minute of extra time. Now the Americans will be out to avenge one of the most gut-wrenching losses in the programs history. Alex Morgan gave the U.S. its first lead of the night in the third minute of injury time Monday, completing the win over Canada in the Olympic semifinals at Old Trafford. Morgans 6-yard header, on a long cross from Heather OReilly, looped high into the net over goalkeeper Erin McLeod for the winning goal. Megan Rapinoe scored in the 54th and 70th minutes, and Abby Wambach in the 80th for the U.S. The Americans overcame three one-goal deficits, all due to a hat trick from Canadas Christine Sinclair, who scored in the 22nd, 67th and 73rd minutes. In many ways the win was reminiscent of the landmark comeback victory against Brazil in last years World Cup. Even when they scored their third goal, there was something in me that knew that we had more, that we could give more, Wambach said. I dont know what that means, quite honestly. I dont know if its just confidence until the end, but this team has a belief in itself, even when the going gets rough. Next comes the game the U.S. players have been eyeing for more than a year, a rematch with Japan on Thursday at Wembley Stadium with gold on the line. The top-ranked Americans lost to Japan on penalty kicks in the World Cup final last summer, a stunning blow that became a source of motivation as the players prepared for this years Olympics. This is redemption for us, midfielder Carli Lloyd said. We know how hard it was for us after that game. It hurt us for a really long time. The U.S. team has played in the title match in every Summer Games since womens soccer was introduced in Atlanta in 1996, winning the gold in 1996, 2004 and 2008 and the silver in 2000. The Americans advanced by continuing their dominance of the neighbor to the north, extending their unbeaten streak against Canada to 27 games (23-0-4). The Americans lead the alltime series 44-3-5, the last loss coming at the Algarve Cup in 2001. But it wasnt easy. Sinclair was an imposing force, scoring her 141st, 142nd and 143rd goals in international play. Shes now even with Wambach for No. 2 on the alltime list, both chasing Mia Hamms world record of 158. Canada coach John Herdman said before the game that the run of futility against the Americans was on the minds of his players, and he addressed it with them in the run-up to the match. He also injected some pregame intrigue by accusing the Americans of using highly illegal, overly physical tactics on free kicks and corner kicks. Certainly, his team gave one of its most spirited efforts on the biggest stage ever for a game between the neighboring rivals, scoring the most goals the U.S. has allowed since a 5-4 win by the Americans over Australia in May 2008. The game included a pair of U.S. goals resulting from moments rarely seen in soccer, including a corner kick that curled in for a goal and a goalkeeper whistled for holding the ball too long. Canada coach John Herdman felt the goalkeeper call was a miscarriage of justice, and he also felt referee Christiana Pedersen of Norway missed a hand ball in the penalty in front of the U.S. goal.

OlympicBRIEFS American fighter disqualified for dopingAmerican judo fighter Nick Delpopolo apologized after he was expelled from the Olympics for doping, blaming the disqualification on his unintentional consumption of something baked with marijuana. Delpopolo is the first of the 10,500 London Games athletes to fail an in-competition doping test. The International Olympic Committee said it disqualified him from the 73-kilogram class, where he placed seventh. He beat opponents from Hong Kong and Belgium, then lost to fighters from South Korea and Mongolia. The IOC added that he tested positive for metabolites of cannabis after competing on July 30, the day of his event. The judoka from Westfield, N.J., said his positive test was caused by my inadvertent consumption of food that I did not realize had been baked with marijuana before he left for the Olympics. I apologize to U.S. Olympic Committee, to my teammates, and to my fans, and I am embarrassed by this mistake, he said in a statement released by the USOC. I look forward to representing my country in the future, and will rededicate myself to being the best judo athlete that I can be. Defending Olympic 50K race walk champion Alex Schwazer also tested positive for doping, and the Italian Olympic Committee said he had been removed from the team. Schwazer was scheduled to compete on Saturday.Russias Mustafina rallies to win even barsIn gymnastics, Gabby Douglas was nowhere near the podium this time. The allaround champion, who also helped the United States to team gold, finished last on uneven bars. Russias Aliya Mustafina rallied to the victory.

Mustafina, who injured her left knee in April 2011, gave Russia its first gold in womens gymnastics in London. This completed her medal set following a silver in team competition and bronze in all-around. Arthur Zanetti finished first on still rings for Brazils first gymnastics medal, and Yang Hakseon of South Korea added the gold on vault to his world title.US gets first two boxing medalsFlyweight Marlen Esparza and middleweight Claressa Shields clinched the U.S. teams first two boxing medals.

The Americans were in awe of the decibel-busting atmosphere in the Olympic debut of womens boxing. I had to keep myself calm out there, said Shields, who somehow managed to hear instructions her personal coach, Jason Crutchfield, shouted from the stands.

Braves 6, Phillies 1 Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Ben Sheets pitched into the eighth inning and Jason Heyward homered to lead the streaking Atlanta Braves to a 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. Sheets (4-1) had his longest outing since joining Atlantas rotation on July 15 after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He allowed one run on seven hits while walking one and striking out none. Freddie Freeman drove in two runs, Brian McCann went 2 for 3 with an RBI and Dan Uggla had a pair of hits for the Braves, who have won 11 of 13 overall.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 7, Yankees 2DETROIT Justin Verlander matched a career high with 14 strikeouts and got home-run support from Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, leading the Detroit Tigers over the New York Yankees 7-2 Monday night. Verlander (12-7) threw 132 pitches, his most in a regularseason game, and sent the Tigers to their fifth straight win. Verlander gave up two unearned runs after his fielding error extended the fifth inning. The AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner wound up going eight innings, and got a huge roar when he left the mound. Detroit has won 19 of its last 23 home games. The AL Eastleading Yankees have lost 11 of 17 overall.Twins 14, Indians 3CLEVELAND Justin Morneau homered twice and drove in four runs, Joe Mauer had three RBIs and Ryan Doumit hit a three-run homer to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 14-3 victory over Cleveland on Monday night, the Indians 10th straight loss. Ben Revere had four of the Twins 14 hits and extended his hitting streak to 20 games while Josh Willingham hit his 29th homer, matching his career-high. The Twins, who homered three times in their 10-run second, fell one run shy of their biggest inning in franchise history. Minnesota has scored 11 runs in an inning four times.Red Sox 9, Rangers 2BOSTON Dustin Pedroia had three of Bostons eight doubles, Aaron Cook pitched seven solid innings and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-2 on Monday night. Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford each doubled twice and Adrian Gonzalez once as the Red Sox increased their major league high to 248 doubles, 35 more than the secondplace New York Mets. And Crawford and Gonzalez drove in three runs each. Cook (3-5) regained control of his sinker after going 0-4 in his previous five starts. Of his 21 outs, 15 came on groundballs. He allowed six hits, walked two and struck out one.Orioles 3, Mariners 1BALTIMORE Chris Tillman took a three-hit shutout into the eighth inning to extend a run of successful starts by Baltimore pitchers, and the Orioles beat Jason Vargas and the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Monday night. Nick Markakis homered and Mark Reynolds had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who have won six of eight to improve to 58-51. Baltimore didnt record its 58th win last year until Sept. 9, one day after its 85th defeat. Tillman (5-1) gave up one run, five hits and a walk in 7 1-3 innings. In two outings against Seattle this year, the right-hander has allowed one earned run in 15 2-3 innings.NATIONAL LEAGUE Pirates 4, Diamondbacks 0PITTSBURGH Erik Bedard allowed two hits over seven innings Monday night and the Pittsburgh Pirates opened a season-long 11-game homestand with a 4-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Bedard did not walk a batter and faced just one over the minimum, striking out five. He retired 17 in a row until his final batter, Paul Goldschmidt, singled. Goldschmidt was thrown out at second base trying to stretch the hit by left fielder Starling Marte to end the seventh. Bedard (6-12) leads the majors in losses but lowered his home ERA to 2.38. Pittsburgh has won 23 of its past 29 games at PNC Park. Jason Grilli and Chad Qualls each worked a perfect inning to preserve the shutout, the Pirates sixth this season and second in the past week. period to make it 85-68. He nailed consecutive 3s again later in the quarter, the latter from beyond the hash line, a distance that most players would never consider pulling up from. Durant, who holds the U.S. scoring record with 38 points in the 2010 world championship, might have threatened that if not for the lopsided score. He checked out for good about a minute into the fourth quarter. Manu Ginobili scored 16 points for Argentina (3-2), which would have won Group B via tiebreaker if it had blown out the U.S. Instead, it finished third and will face Brazil in the quarterfinals. A crowd featuring former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and ex-heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield was treated to an offensive show in the first half with little more defense than the NBA All-Star game. A basket on one end was answered quickly by a shot on the other in what was shaping up as a thriller between the last two Olympic champions. But the U.S. simply has too much offense, even if the defense could use some tightening up. In the end, Sharrone was too strong on this night, and went on to take the victory in the classs biggest race of the season. Eberly came home a strong second, with Williamson moving by Jenkins for third at the checkers. Sharrone pocketed $600 for his efforts, taking the win, fast-qualifier and hardcharger awards for the night. Thirteen Open-Wheel Modifieds had one of the wildest finishes of the season in their 40-lap feature event. Last years division champion Doug Miller (53) benefitted from the four-row inversion, and jumped to the lead from his pole position at the drop of the green. Outside pole-sitter Josh Todd (289) slid into the second spot, with third starter Richie Smith (42) on their tails. The first caution was waved at lap 8 for contact between Steven Hise (2) and Jason Garver (27). Once reset, the field came to green with the top three drivers resuming their battle. Smith wasted no time going to work on Todd for second, making the outside pass to take the second position. Lap 17 saw the next caution for contact between Gator Hise (43) and Wayne Morris (198). Hise expressed his displeasure by running into Morris under caution, which resulted in a black flag for Hise. Miller had his hands full on the restart, with Smith right in his tire tracks at the drop of the green. Smith finally found the room he needed on lap 29, moving by Miller for the lead. The last caution of the night came on lap 34, bunching up the field for a six-lap sprint to the checkers. Smith tried to run away on the restart, but Miller was right on his bumper trying to retake the lead. As the cars took the white flag, the aggression ramped up. As Smith came off of turn 4 coming to the checkered flag, Miller made contact with the rear of his car, turning the leader sideways. Smith collected his car and stood on the gas, sliding sideways across the finish line to take his first feature win of 2012. The chaos sent cars in every direction coming to the checkered flag. Millers car became airborne, landing on top of Smith and Steven Hise in a mangled mess of sheet metal in turn 1. Jarrett Snowden (4) found a way through the smoke and spinning cars to take the third spot as the checkers fell. Heat race winners were brothers Steven and Gator Hise. Twenty Sportsman cars took the green for their 25lap feature, with Ernie Reed (55) and Andy Nichols (66) on the front row. Reed jumped out to the early lead before a lap 2 caution for contact between Nichols and George Gorham Jr. (10) sent Nichols for a spin. Gorham Jr. took blame for the incident, sending himself to the rear, and Nichols back to his position. Reed lead on the restart, but caution flew again just as the field came up to speed. Reed went go for a spin after contact from the second-running Brandon Morris (56). Morris took blame for the incident, sending himself to the rear, and Reed back to the lead for the restart. Once everything settled down, the drivers got down to racing. Reed continued to lead until lap 9, when eighth-place starter Aaron Williamson (13) took over the top spot from Reed. Williamson would survive one more late-race caution to record his second feature win of 2012. Coming home a strong second was Cody Johnson (90) with one of his best runs of the season, and Andy Nichols rounded out the top 3.

She managed to convince vegetable-hating Leno to nibble on apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, green peppers and zucchini. Associated PressSALZBURG, Austria Operagoers attending Salzburg Festivals new production of Puccinis La Boheme expected the worst when the man with the microphone stepped out, shortly before show-time but then came the good news. Piotr Beczala, who had received rave reviews at last weeks premiere, had lost his voice, they were told, but instead of the show being stripped of its star performer, his voice would be replaced by one of the hottest names in opera today. Enter Jonas Kaufmann, and Saturdays audience settled into a mode of gleeful anticipation of a special evening to come, particularly after the decision to let Bezcala act and Kaufmann provide the singing from the sidelines. They were not disappointed. Kaufmann performed brilliantly between chews of what appeared to be a hastily organized sandwich and gulps of mineral water. He was supposed to be only the voice, with Bezcala miming the words and action but the audience was hard put to keep its eyes on the stage. Formally, Kaufmann is at the Salzburg Festival this year to sing in another role and on Saturday he was supposed to be resting up for a performance on Sunday. But more of that later. As he threw himself into the role of the poor poet in love with the consumptive seamstress Mimi, Kaufmann accented his broad, full-throated and awe-inspiring Wagnerian tenor with gestures and facial expressions reflecting his total identification with the role of a man tossed and turned by the forces of love and despair. Though that wasnt the plan, Kaufmann essentially reduced Beczala to window-dressing. He even occasionally verged on upstaging Mimi no small feat, considering that she was portrayed by Anna Netrebko, the Russian diva who imbues any role with star presence worthy more of Hollywood than the opera stage. Netrebkos lush voice, perfect intonation, masterful control and passionate interpretations are always a treat, and she again lived up to expectations as Mimi, particularly considering that the opera one of the worlds most popular has never been performed at the Salzburg Festival before this year. Previous highbrow festival directors had considered it trashy. But back to Kaufmann and forward to Richard Strauss Ariadne auf Naxos, an opera written only a few decades later than La Boheme but as different as day and night. While La Boheme tells the story straight, Ariadne is an opera within a play. The prologue depicting backstage preparations for the performance of an opera is then followed by that opera a work based on Greek mythology exploring the purity of real love. But the rich burgher who commissioned the work suddenly decides to combine it with a farcical musical comedy. It is a prescription for chaos that instead turns into delightful musical theater created only as Strauss could have done. It all isnt complicated enough, however, for director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, who has added yet another layer to the Salzburg production. He weaves in the love story of librettist Hugo von Hoffmannsthal and Ottonie von Degenfeld-Schonburg, a young widow. She is said to have been the model for Ariadne, who longs for death after being abandoned by her lover and finds love in the arms of Bacchus, played by Kaufmann. Kaufmann on Sunday was in brilliant voice, just a day after his impromptu La Boheme stint and Bechtolfs conceit works brilliantly, with the curtain going down on three couples arm-inarm: Bacchus and Ariadne; the rich burgher and Zerbinetta, the leader of the comic troupe; and Hugo and Ottonie.Salzburg Festival opens Birthday An endeavor in the year ahead might not get off to the auspicious start that you hoped it would. However, dont let this discourage you, because tenacity will help you reap the rewards you desire. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you have to contend with an individual who is unyielding and stubborn, attempting to convert him or her to your way of doing things could turn out to be an exercise in futility. Let it go. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont assume any new financial obligations, especially if you are already straining to take care of some old debts. One more straw could break the camels back. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Before accusing your mate or anyone else of dragging his or her feet, make sure youre doing everything that is required of you. Theres a chance that youve dropped the ball. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Should you find yourself being asked to perform a task or assignment that you find distasteful, rather than make a fuss over it, do what is requested with a smile. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Do what you can to steer clear of a controversial situation that involves two of your friends. Your well-meaning input could complicate matters rather than help resolve them. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Disagreements with family need to be kept private. Instead of acquiring support, airing your disputes in public merely makes everyone look bad in the eyes of others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You should strive to be supportive of associates who express their ideas and/or plans. If you feel compelled to comment, make sure that what you say is constructive, not critical. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Before taking on any longterm obligation at this point in time, review the possibilities from all angles. If you are impulsive about it, you could create difficulties that would last a long while. Aries (March 21-April 19) If you find yourself stymied by a lack of support, be both patient and persevering. There isnt anyone who cant be won over. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont expect your colleagues to do things for you that you could easily do for yourself. Whether theyre friends or co-workers, others will resent being manipulated. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It might provide you with temporary pleasure to put frivolous interests ahead of duties, but it wont equal the guilt youll feel and/or blame youll collect on account of not doing your job. Cancer (June 21-July 22) There wont be any free rides currently. Only hard work and persistence will help you achieve goals worthy of the effort. Youll need to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Federal prosecutors on Monday announced a deal to drop a criminal case against Gibson Guitar Corp. after the instrument maker acknowledged its importations of exotic wood violated environmental laws. Nashville-based Gibson agreed to pay a $300,000 penalty, forfeit claims to about $262,000 worth of wood seized by federal agents and contribute $50,000 to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to promote the conservation of protected tree species. The agreement is fair and just in that it assesses serious penalties for Gibsons behavior while allowing Gibson to continue to focus on the business of making guitars, U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin said in a statement. Gibson didnt immediately respond to messages left Monday seeking comment. The privately held company is considered one of the top makers of acoustic and electric guitars, including the iconic Les Paul introduced in 1952. Gibsons decision to cooperate with the federal Lacey Act banning the import of endangered wood products stood in contrast to a publicity campaign mounted in protest after agents raided Gibson facilities in Memphis and Nashville. Republicans and tea party members had rallied behind CEO Henry Juszkiewicz at the time he denounced the raids as overzealous federal regulation that threatened American jobs. We feel totally abused, Juszkiewicz said immediately after the August 2011 raid. He vowed at the time the company would fight aggressively to prove our innocence. Soon afterward he was invited by House Speaker John Boehner to attend a joint session of Congress in which President Barack Obama delivered a speech on jobs. A few weeks later a company spokesman claimed that a federal agent had lied in affidavits claiming the CEO knew the wood seized by authorities was illegally imported. Those affidavits supporting the search warrant that authorized the raids alleged that shipments of imported Indian ebony and rosewood were given false labels to circumvent import restrictions. The settlement says a Gibson employee learned during a 2008 trip to Madagascar the source of some of the ebony wood that was seized that it was illegal to import unfinished wood and sent a report about it to his superiors, including company President David Berryman. The exotic woods used in such guitars are considered integral to the sound. And artists who have played Gibson instruments range widely from Chet Atkins and Maybelle Carter in country to Pete Townshend of The Who and Eric Clapton in rock to Larry Carlton and Paul in jazz. George Gruhn, who owns a vintage guitar shop in Nashville, said he wasnt surprised that Gibson officials accepted the settlement. Regardless of the merits of the case on either side, it would have cost more than that by far to pursue it, he said. Even if they thought they conceivably they could win, it would have probably cost more than $1 million to do it. Gruhn said the resolution of the Gibson case doesnt ease his concerns about the Lacey Act, which initially halted the trade in endangered wildlife goods, like ivory, but in 2008 added rare woods to the import ban. The problem is that virtually every instrument prior to 1970 contains Brazilian rosewood, he said. Even on a Gibson LGO, which was their cheapest student guitar. Justice and Interior Department officials said in a September letter that those who unknowingly possess an instrument made from illegally imported materials dont have a criminal problem. Last year, Blackburn and fellow U.S. Reps. Jim Cooper of Nashville, a Democrat, introduced legislation they said would protect people from charges for unknowingly possessing illegally imported wood, and would require the federal government to establish a database of forbidden wood sources.

Fast friends DREW NASH/The Times-NewsFriends Justin Kelley, 15, right, and Matt Lowe, 14, play a video game July 19 at Lowes home while Justins brother, Chris Kelley, 20, watches in the background in Jerome, Idaho. The boys met at a MuscularDystrophy Association camp in McCall over the summer. Idaho teens bond over letters, videogames, muscular dystrophy TETONADUNLAP Times-News TWIN FALLS, Idaho For one afternoon, Matt Lowe and Justin Kelley were just teenage boys. They played video games, eyes transfixed on the screen, their wheelchairs side by side as their hands clutched game controllers. Matt, 14, was showing Justin, 15, how to play a Halo 3 mini-game called Jenga Tower. Dont shoot. Thats not how you play the game, Matt said. Matt pushed a button on his wheelchair to recline and get more comfortable, as Justin said: I think Im winning. In an hour, Justin would have to make the two-hour ride from Matts Jerome home back to Nampa. These treasured visits could be more frequent if Matt could travel easily, and their two families hope donations will help them buy a van Matt can ride in. During Justins July 19 visit, Matts older sister, Shanna, 19, sat on Matts bed with Justins brother, Chris, 20. Matts baseball cap collection hung above them, and Halo Reach and Angry Birds posters on one wall. A nightstand was stacked with games like Max Payne 3 and Gears of War 3. Next to Matts bed was a letter Justin wrote to Matt after the two returned to their separate homes following a McCall camp in June. Matt, I have sent you an extra headset. Hope it will come in handy. I have a lot of fun playing Xbox Live with you. Glad I went to camp and met you and now we are friends, Justin wrote. The boys met at the Muscular Dystrophy Association camp, a weeklong camp for children with neuromuscular disease. Matt and Justin have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic condition caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptoms emerge in early childhood; the disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it affects girls. Muscle weakness is one the first symptoms and can begin as early as age 3. It first affects the muscles of the hips, pelvic area, thighs and shoulders then later the skeletal muscles in the arms, legs and trunk, and by the early teens, the heart and respiratory muscles. Justins father, Doug Kelley, remembers thinking that his son was just a late bloomer. At 4 years old, Justin was having a hard time getting up and running. Then his muscles started swelling up.HEALTH& LIFE Last week, I discussed the health problems associated with physical inactivity and obesity. Now, even more data has been presented showing that some cancer treatments may not be as effective in obese people as they are in those of a normal body mass. For years, experts have been questioning if hormone-suppressing drugs are the best treatment for obese women with breast cancer because they still have higher levels of estrogen than normal weight women, even after treatment. The Institute of Cancer Research in London and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust conducted a study Dr. C. Joseph BennettAMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY Obesity may affect treatment See BENNETT/ Page C6 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE PSA helps or hurts Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United States. It affects almost one in six men in the United States once in their lifetime. In most cases, it is a slow-growing cancer. It grows so slowly in many men that it would not kill most people. Still, in some patients, prostate cancer is fastgrowing and spreads to other parts of the body, mainly bones. In these patients, it can kill. In fact, every year in United States, 28,000 people die due to it. This is roughly 11 percent of 242,000 people diagnosed each year in the United See GANDHI/ Page C6 We are all aware of the hearing loss problem that affects the older adult population, but what we might not think about is the hearing loss problem that is affecting our teens and young adults. Noise exposure in the work place decades ago caused many of our older adult patient population to lose their hearing. The industrial revolution here in America and the postWorld War II buildup when there were numerous factories building numerous products, everything from washing machines to cars to airplanes, exposed people to noise. Over the years, this became a problem that was addressed, and certain rules, regulations and laws were instituted to safeguard employees in these situations. As a result, nowadays most facilities protect and guard their employees ears. Teenagers and young adults most likely do not work in these types of environments, as most products in the United States are imported. We do not build much of anything in the United States, but we do buy things, and among the things we buy are audio technology in the form of cell phones, iPods and stereo equipment for our homes and cars.

A: On July 16, the FDA approved Truvada, the first drug for reducing the risk of sexually acquired human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Truvada is a twodrug combination medication that was originally approved in 2004 to treat HIVinfected adults and children 12 years or older used in conjunction with other HIV medications. Truvada is now also approved to be taken once daily and used together with safer sex practices to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV infection in adults who do not have HIV, but are at high risk of becoming infected. In two large clinical studies, Truvada reduced the risk of HIV infection by 42 percent in about 2,500 HIV-negative gay and bisexual men and transgender women, and by 75 percent in about 4,800 heterosexual couples in which one partner was infected with HIV and the other was not. Before Truvada is prescribed, health care professionals need to weigh the risk versus benefit as follows: The person must be tested to ensure that he or she is HIV negative, and this test should be repeated every three months thereafter. Flu-like symptoms such as fever or muscle aches are a red flag because they could indicate the presence of early, acute HIV infection, even if test results are negative. There is a window of four to five weeks with some tests, and up to three months with others, in which the antibodies that indicate HIV infection do not appear in the blood. Safety concerns tied to Truvada have to do with its effect on the bones and kidneys. While effects observed in clinical trials were mild and reversible with discontinuation of the medication, people with a history of bone or kidney ailments should be regularly monitored to ensure their continued health. It is recommended that the person also be tested for hepatitis B, because worsening of hepatitis B infections has been reported in those who have both HIV and hepatitis B when treatment with Truvada was stopped. In addition, the FDA requires a strategy to reduce the risks of using Truvada which includes a training program for prescribers to help them counsel patients on several key points including the following: The drug should not become a substitute for a condom, but rather, an adjunct to condom use and other preventive measures. The antiretroviral must be taken daily, because its effectiveness strongly correlates to adherence. Intermittent use might spur on the development of Truvadaresistant HIV. Monitoring a patients HIV status after the start of preexposure prophylaxis is crucial because if a patient subsequently becomes infected, he or she should switch from the standalone antiretroviral to the combination of antiretrovirals for treating (as opposed to preventing) HIV infection. Also, an HIVpositive patient who continues to take Truvada by itself risks the development of a drug-resistant virus. About 1.2 million Americans have HIV infection with about 50,000 adults and adolescents newly diagnosed each year. The overall rate of HIV infection has remained stable at least since 2004. A key goal of anti-HIV drugs is to help stop HIV from reproducing. HIV is a virus that attacks your immune system, which is made up of millions of cells that help fight against infection and disease. Once HIV enters the body, the virus infects specialized immune system cells known as CD4 cells and multiplies (replicates) inside these cells. These new viruses are released into the blood and go on to infect other CD4 cells. As CD4 cells are attacked and destroyed by HIV, the immune system becomes less able to fight infection and disease. Anti-HIV drugs work by helping to stop or inhibit certain steps during the HIV replication process. When used in combination, anti-HIV therapies can help reduce the amount of HIV in the blood (viral load). Truvada works to prevent the HIV virus from establishing itself and multiplying in the body.Richard P. Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years.

I am 68 years old and have been wearing dentures since my 20s. I am currently wearing my third set, which is about 15 years old. I have noticed the teeth have worn down and I cannot chew like I used to. My biggest problem is I have a sore right behind my last tooth on the bottom left. It seems as though the denture is settling into the gums. No matter what I do, I cannot get rid of this sore. In the past, I would have a sore, baby it, and it would go away. This one wont go away. Do you have any idea what this could be and if there is something that can be done to help me? A: Thanks so much for your question. I am glad my column got you thinking. I might actually have the answer for you, as what you are describing is not uncommon. Since you did not mention it, I am going to assume you have a full denture on the top and a partial on the bottom. This is a very common scenario, and I know you have lower teeth since you mentioned the sore behind the last tooth on the left. As for not being able to chew as well, you might be right on target. The worn teeth over the years are probably not as efficient as they used to be. Having a new set of teeth made will definitely help with this. Unfortunately, there is not much else that can be done when the teeth are worn beyond their usefulness. As for the sore on the bottom I bet it has to do with the partial denture. There are many times a denture is made without the use of a rest seat. A rest seat is a small dimple that is made on the back of the last tooth so the metal of the partial can rest into it. This helps with settling of the denture. It is especially important if the same denture is worn for many years without having had a reline. What happens is, as bone is lost (this occurs naturally) the denture settles towards the gums. If the rest is not there, the patient gets a significant sore right behind the last tooth. No matter what the patient does, the pain persists. An adjustment by a dentist might help for a short period of time, but it is guaranteed to come back again. The best solution is to make a new denture with the use of a rest seat. I am pretty certain this is what you are experiencing. I would suggest you go to your dentist and see if I am on target. You will likely need a new set of teeth. The good news is your problem should be solved! Dr. Frank Vascimini is a Homosassa dentist. Write to 4805 S.

dont understand. When are you legally supposed to stop for a school bus? The first and easiest law to remember: if you are behind a school bus and it stops to pick up or drop off students, you MUST stop and NO, you cannot pass it. Second: on a two-lane highway, both directions MUST stop. Third: if you are on a fourlane highway with a turn lane in between, both directions (all four lanes), MUST stop. And fourth: if you are on a four-lane highway with an actual median separation, only the vehicles behind the bus must stop; however, if you are in one of the lanes opposite the bus, you should still use caution.School buses are one of the safest forms of transportation on the road today. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, riding a bus to school is 13 times safer than riding in a passenger vehicle and 10 times safer than walking to school. The reality of school bus safety is that more children are hurt outside the bus than inside as passengers. Most of the children who lose their lives in busrelated crashes are pedestrians, 4 to 7 years old, who are hit by the bus or by motorists illegally passing a stopped school bus. Citrus County school buses have flashing strobetype lights and are equipped with stop signs that activate during pickups and drop-offs. One thing to remember is that children dont always cross the street at intersections and many wear headphones or earplugs while listening to music and may not be aware of their surroundings. Keeping them safe is still up to you whether they step off the bus or walk home, so always drive with caution. Now, here are a few ideas to keep you from losing your temper in those early morning and late afternoon driving times. I recommend leaving the house earlier than normal to allow extra time for school traffic and do so for at least a week or two. Remember that crossing guards are not on duty to make you late for work; they are working to keep our children safe. Here is one more thing: if the school zone lights are flashing or the time of day is stated, slow down to the legal speed; 20 miles per hour is NOT a suggestion. Its against the law, very stiff fines are issued, and someone could get hurt or worse if you exceed the school zone speed limit. Nature Coast EMS team members all too often see accidents that could have been avoided, so watch your speed, look out for children, and be aware of the school buses. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff in Citrus County for a safe and happy school year. We hope you all get As! As always, be safe, take care and stay well!Katie Lucas is the public information officer at Nature Coast EMS. She can be reached at 352-249-4730 or katie.lucas@nature coastems.org.

LUCASContinued from Page C1 Whether we acknowledge it or not, it is a fact young Americans who use this technology are losing their hearing faster today than any generations prior. We are talking about millions of young Americans, some of them younger than 18, who have lost part if not all of their hearing. Some estimates suggest 20 percent of American teens have some form of hearing loss. Noises above 85 decibels can cause hearing damage. To give you some idea, generalized traffic noise is about 70 decibels, but a lawnmower or a rock concert can exceed 100 to 120 decibels and do damage. An iPod played at 90 percent to 100 percent of its volume longer than 90 minutes a day can cause damage to the inner ear that is not reversible or correctible. This exposure to loud music can destroy the sensory cells of the inner ear and once one-fourth or onethird of these sensory cells are damaged, hearing loss starts and the hearing will never be recovered. Many of us who are in our 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s can appreciate the preciousness of hearing and/or can relate to hearing loss, as we have started noticing some problems. Unfortunately, the millions of young Americans see themselves as bulletproof and are not aware of the damage that they are incurring. Simple things that do not change the lifestyle of young Americans can be implemented to help prevent hearing loss. Pay attention to your noisy environment, whether it is play time or the workplace. If you cannot get away from the noise, wear ear protection. The simple task of lowering the volume of the TV, radio, computer, stereo, car radio, iPod or MP3 player works wonders. If you like to do noisy things like riding motorcycles, ATVs or have a job that exposes you to loud noise, filter the noise out. Wear some appropriate approved ear plugs and you can do the same when you go to concerts and night clubs. They are very small in many cases and are very inconspicuous and most people will not even know what you are doing all the while you are taking care to preserve your hearing. Do not use cotton or wool as an ear plug, as it will not do the proper job of protecting your hearing. I think we all understand that loud noise such as an explosion can damage your ear, but what I do not think we understand is that repeated exposure for longer than a 90-minute period of time to less-loud noise can equally damage the ear over time. Protect your ears and your hearing, as they are precious. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

GRILLOContinued from Page C1C6TUESDAY, AUGUST7, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE They really want to run and play sports but they cant, Doug said. The Kelley family moved to Idaho about a year ago from California, and the Idaho MDA soon contacted them with an invitation to this summers camp. Doug describes Justin as introverted, somebody who doesnt like to be the center of attention. He prefers to stay home on most days. Justin didnt even want to go to MDA camp, and it was hard for Doug to send him. But Doug made him go anyway, stipulating that Chris attend as a counselor. When Justin returned from camp, Doug and his wife, Tracey, said their usually quiet boy couldnt stop talking about his new friend Matt. My boy wants to get up and hang out with Matt, Doug said. In the past, children with DMD were not expected to survive past their teen years. But according to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, due to advances in cardiac and respiratory care its become common for those with DMD to live into their 30s. As a toddler, Matt was really happy, said his mother, Alauna Block, as she pointed to a photo of her sons round, smiling face. When they go in the wheelchair, they dont want to be exposed to the world, Block said. Alauna recalled a year when the family learned, shortly after picking up Matt from camp, that a fellow camper and friend had died during his ride home from camp. Alauna said she reminds her son that on any day anyone can die. We just enjoy what moments we have to spend, she said. I just take it one day at a time. When Matt underwent surgery for scoliosis in 2011, Alauna said, he told her when he woke up: Mom, I didnt die. She often asks Matt what he thinks about his situation. He has simply told her, Ill be all right ... Im just living in the here and now, she said. Anytime the Kelleys intend to visit Matt, Doug said, Justin wakes right up and doesnt mind the long ride. They open up when they are with each other, Alauna said. So far friendships are hard to come by ... they connect on a different level. When Justin visits, its a time for the two friends to hang out, chat, play video games and go to a restaurant together. Its not every day that Matt gets the opportunity to leave his house. In May, Alauna had to get rid of her van because it was developing more mechanical problems and the 8-foot metal ramp she attached was so steep and dangerous she feared Matt would fall over while being loaded. Matt often has doctors appointments in Boise, and more than once Alauna was afraid the van would break down between Boise and Jerome. To get to camp this year, Matt used a rental van donated by Access Vans, an adaptive vehicle services company in Boise. But there are many times that Matt and his family would just like to be able to go to the store or a restaurant safely and easily. A Twin Falls woman gave them a van that belonged to her sister who had cerebral palsy and died recently. It was really, really neat she would do that, Alauna said. The two families are trying to raise money to purchase a van that would fit all Matts needs. An account was opened at Pioneer Federal Credit Union called Operation Matt Mobile. A webpage (www.operationmattmobile.org) shares Matts story and is a place to make online donations. If Matts parents can buy a van, hell be able to leave his house to go to the store and visit Justin in Nampa. (Justin) literally is so excited to do something for his friend because its going to be life-changing for him, too, Doug said. FRIENDSContinued from Page C1 and found that hormonesuppressing drugs did greatly decrease estrogen levels in obese women, however, those levels still more than doubled a normal weight womans level. The experts published their study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, hoping their findings will help doctors provide the best treatment for overweight and obese women. Scientists say that women receiving treatment for breast cancer should not be affected by these findings, while emphasizing that the effect of obesity was modest. However, in my opinion, it is even more of a reason for those of you who have had breast cancer and weigh more than you should to increase your level of activity. More than three quarters of breast cancers need estrogen to grow, so one of the best ways to treat it is by stopping the hormones ability to increase. As we already know, women with obesity have higher levels of estrogen than normal weight women. This new research shows that in overweight women, hormone-suppressing drugs (like Arimidex and other aromatase inhibitors, as the class of drugs is called) considerably decrease their levels, but those levels are still higher during treatment than normal weight women who receive the same treatment. And the goal is to have the levels as low as possible. In this study, researchers found that women with higher BMIs had more estrogen remaining in their blood after treatment than healthy-weight women, which is consistent with previous suggestions that aromatase inhibitors might be slightly less effective in these obese women. Their findings were based on laboratory studies, so researchers would need to carry out clinical trials to tell us whether women with a higher BMI would benefit from changes to their treatment. Women with higher BMIs should certainly not be alarmed by this finding or stop taking their treatment. This study takes us a step closer to understanding which of the treatment options available might be the most suitable for individual women. However, obese women should become proactive, and try to lose some weight. Two aromatase inhibitors were examined anastrozole and letrozole (a more potent drug). Fifty-four postmenopausal women were examined who were treated at the Edinburgh Breast Unit, and who had estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. The women were treated with either three months of adjuvant anastrozole then three months of letrozole, or the drugs in the opposite order. Forty-four of those patients were able to give data before and after treatment on their BMI and estrogen levels. Their levels of estradiol in the blood were measured. The results showed that before treatment, women with higher BMIs also had higher estrogen levels. Women with BMIs between 30 and 35 had about three times more plasma estrogen than women with a BMI of 25 or less. The research also showed that women with BMIs between 30 and 35 still had levels of plasma estrogen three times higher than healthy weight women after letrozole treatment. Why does this matter? It is simple. Aromatase inhibitors have played an increasing role in breast cancer treatment over the past decade, so it is important to understand the factors that affect how well they work in individual women in order to allow doctors to choose the best possible drug from the range available. As we move to more personalized treatments for each individual, weight may play a large role. Dr. C.

Our goal should be to find this fast-growing and more dangerous cancer and treat it early with either surgery or radiation therapy. PSA is a blood test that was developed to detect prostate cancer early. It definitely helps detection of early cancer, but it does not distinguish between slow-growing and somewhat benign prostate cancer from aggressive and fast-growing cancer that may kill the patient. It is a simple blood test. In the United States, most doctors recommend it to all men older than 50. If the PSA level is high, standard recommendation is to do a prostate biopsy as an outpatient to detect whether the patient had cancer or not. This is because PSA can go up not only in patients with cancer, but also due to BPH or benign prostate enlargement or infection in the prostate. This leads to many patients without cancer who undergo prostate biopsy. It also leads to treatment with surgery or radiation in many patients with slowgrowing prostate cancer. This cancer is unlikely to cause any harm to the patient in most cases. Of course, treatment can cause side effects like impotence or urinary incontinence. The USPTF or United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended against PSA testing in all healthy men without any symptoms. Their reasoning was that the test helps some but hurts many more due to the above-mentioned reasons. This was not well received by urologists and many physicians who commonly treat cancer. This is because if we do not do PSAs at all, many patients with aggressive cancer would die who could have been helped by early detection and treatment. Recently, the ASCO or American Society of Oncology made wiser recommendations. This is the largest organization of cancer experts in the united States. The ASCO developed the following recommendations for PSA testing in men with no symptoms of the disease: For men expected to live 10 years or less, general screening is not recommended because the risks appear to outweigh the benefits for most men. For men expected to live longer than 10 years, patients should talk about PSA testing with their doctors to find out if it is an appropriate test for them. In short, every man older than 50 should discuss this issue with his doctor. Everyones philosophy of life, risk tolerance, risk of cancer is different. The patient, along with his own doctor, can make the best decision that suits him.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Patients sometimes do not realize how important a role they play in obtaining a correct diagnosis for their medical problem through their history or description of the problem. Medical issues and injuries do have classic textbook cases and relatively easy diagnoses, such as an ingrown toenail, laceration or broken bone following trauma. Laboratory results, radiographs and other diagnostic tests can confirm or make certain diagnoses. However, there are certain conditions which may be more nebulous and difficult to diagnose. A patient who complains that their toes are crooked probably has hammertoes. A patient who complains of heel pain that is terrible with their first step, then seems to improve until they rest and get up again, probably has plantar fasciitis. Tingling sensations in both feet identically primarily noticed in bed at night likely is the earliest stage of peripheral polyneuropathy. These straightforward diagnoses are not always the case with other conditions. A patient with a large bump near the great toe that is irritated with shoes probably has a bunion. The bump could also look like a bunion to even the trained eye, but really be a hallux rigidus, and treatment indicated for bunions used on hallux rigidus will fail. This holds true for all the specialties in medicine. A thorough description of the problem and course can be vital to making the correct diagnosis. This is the case as the patient, not the physician, is connected to and experiences the problem. Thus, the patient is the best source of information in most cases. A good description of the problem helps me many times make an accurate diagnosis. What makes it better or worse? When is it most noticeable during the day? Is there a particular time of day the symptoms are worse? What have you or others tried to help? Do the symptoms travel? Do shoes influence the problem and if so what shoes in particular? Has this occurred before? What does it feel like? Patients often do not think these questions are important in diagnosis, but they are. A physician is looking for an adjective for the presentation of the discomfort or pain to help make the diagnosis to help the patient. Simply saying it hurts is usually not helpful. Rather a more detailed description of the pain is much more helpful. Descriptions of burning, tingling, electric, numb and cramping point me in the neurologic or circulation direction. Cramping with exercise or lying down points more toward circulation. A feels like description points to a nerve issue, such as, It feels like socks are bunched up under my toes even if I am not wearing socks. Aching points me toward an orthopedic problem. Pain after rest points me toward tendon, ligament, or joint pathologies, etc. There are times when some information a patient relates regarding a problem is irrelevant, and time is more and more limited in medicine, unfortunately. However, there are times when I am having a hard time making a diagnosis based on what I see and what the patient has related until they make one statement that seems to open a door. Sometimes a patient will say I dont know if this means anything, but ... and that bit of information helps fill in gaps in the diagnostic process significantly. Heel pain is an example. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. Many patients self-diagnose or are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, but not all are plantar fasciitis. Patients who consistently deny that their symptoms are worse when first arising to their feet have to be considered for another cause, especially in light of failing to respond to prior treatments. Patients who relate increased symptoms the longer they are on their foot may have a bursitis instead, even if a spur shows up on a radiograph. Pain in the heel that does not respond to a heel cushion or an injection of cortisone that worsens in a standing posture can be due a pinched nerve in the lumbar spine in absence of any back pain or symptoms. Radiographs, lab work, CT scan, MRI and bone scan will not diagnose this particular problem causing lumbar radiculopathy. A nerve conduction test can confirm a neurologic diagnosis, but a suspicion of the diagnosis is the only impetus that would cause a physician to order this test with a complaint of heel pain in most cases. A pinched nerve causing heel pain is not a common cause of heel pain; however, statements in a patients history can tip a physician to give this consideration or differential diagnosis. Back in podiatry school, my professors said you must listen to the patient and ask the right questions before you treat. Patients will tell you the diagnosis 85 percent of the time alone without any tests if you simply listen to their symptoms.

Then its time for a change. I ask you for your support and your vote. HEMRICK FOR SHERIFF www.HemrickforSheriff.com See GROUPS/ Page C11

Searching for scouts Two Recruitment Fairs slated for Citrus County in August Honoring American heroes 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 as Purple Heart Recognition Day in Citrus County. The Purple Heart, originally known as the Military Badge of Merit, was established by the general orders 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. Friends and family of Irvin and Jewel Bohrer recently gathered at North Fauci Point in Crystal River to raise the walls of their new Habitat home. I went to an orientation and submitted the application for home ownership but never thought that I would be approved, said Bohrer. It took about three months for the family to obtain enough of the required 500 sweat equity hours for work to begin on their home. Construction is expected to be completed in October. Persons interested in entering the Habitat housing program must attend a mandatory orientation course from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Realtors Association of Citrus County building, 714 S. Scarboro Ave., Lecanto.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST7, 2012 C9 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee said, While we believe that cost-benefit analysis is an important tool to inform agency decisionmaking, the results of the cost-benefit analysis do not trump existing law. This week we are looking at how a declarer who has too many losers in a trump contract can eliminate those he cannot afford. Yesterday we looked at discarding. One of Thompsons words highlights the second common method. South is in four spades. How many losers does he have, and what should he do after winning the first trick with his heart ace? Souths jump to four spades is a slight overbid, but we love that vulnerable game bonus! South, looking at his own hand and taking dummys honor cards into account, should see four losers: two diamonds and two clubs. (He has only nine winners: six spades, two hearts and one club.) The key is the club suit. Whenever declarer has a side suit with more cards in his hand than on the board, he should plan to ruff losers in the dummy. Note that South starts with six trump tricks. If he ruffs a loser in his hand, he still has only six trump winners. But if he ruffs on the board, he gains a seventh trump trick. Declarer should cash the club ace and play another club. He wins, say, the heart return, ruffs the club jack high in the dummy, draws trumps, and claims. Finally, note that if South errs by drawing two rounds of trumps before playing on clubs, West should take his sides club trick and lead his last trump to kill the club ruff.

Nancy recently took a fourmonth leave due to stress and anxiety. During her absence, Joe and I went to lunch a few times and dinner on one occasion. Nothing romantic happened. I planned to let Nancy know at the time, but didnt think it was important enough to send an email. I left her a voicemail to call me and hoped wed get together during her leave. Unfortunately, I didnt get the chance. When she came back, Nancy accused me of swooping in and taking over Joe. I have tried talking to her, but shes angry that I didnt tell her during her leave. I explained that I tried, but she never called me back. She claims I crossed her territory and now cant be trusted. She believes I was plotting all along. I also suspect that she is spreading rumors about me, saying I want to sleep with Joe. Thats not true. I am trying my best not to let this bother me. Joe has spoken to her, but I dont have any idea what he said. The problem is, it is extremely uncomfortable in the office now. Although I love my work, I may need to look for a new job. It upsets me that someone could be so cruel, even though I tried my best to be supportive during her leave. Any suggestions for coping with Nancy? Coworker Dear Co-worker: Nancy seems very proprietary toward Joe, and unless they are a romantic couple, he should set her straight. Her behavior is unprofessional and disruptive. But you are not entirely blameless. Having lunch and dinner with your boss could be misconstrued, and you were well aware that this would bother Nancy. You should have made a greater effort to speak to her during her absence. Apologize sincerely for unintentionally stepping on her toes, reassure her that you have no interest in Joe, and then let her make the next move. If time does not alleviate the situation, you may opt to take it up with human resources. Dear Annie: My husband is retired, while I still work four days a week. He hires someone to cut the grass, but I trim the bushes, pull the weeds, wash the windows and do all the housecleaning and laundry. He will help cook because I dont have time and he likes to eat. So what does he do all day? He hangs out with his friends, goes for a walk or to the gym, attends Bible study classes and visits the sick. I think maybe I should get sick and see if he will visit me. Overworked in Ohio Dear Ohio: While its admirable that your husband visits the sick, he apparently believes that retirement means he is free from all obligations except those he willingly chooses. This is unfair to you. First try talking to him about it, explaining that you see no reason to have two jobs while he has none. Tell him that pitching in and doing his share will help your marriage. But you also are taking on more than you need to. If you can afford it, hire someone to do the more difficult, timeconsuming chores. Leave his laundry where it falls, and let him handle it. You can make choices, too. Dear Annie: Disgusted in Louisiana took issue with your response to Desperate Housewife that all couples need to tend to their marriages and flirt with their spouses. I am sorry to hear how unhappy she is. I have been married to the love of my life for 50 years. Yes, perhaps the passion from long ago is gone, but we flirt, snuggle and have date night, and my heart still flutters when he enters the room. I cannot imagine my life without him. Growing old together is exactly what we treasure. Happy in El Paso Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
