C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterCommissioners agreed Tuesday to pay an inmates medical bill of $320,000, while asking county staff if reimbursement would be possible. They were disappointed. Richard, has this guy got anything? Commissioner John JJ Kenney asked County Attorney Richard Wesch during a meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). I mean, can we put a lien on his life? Can we get back what we are putting out for this guy? Thats my question. Wesch responded: Commissioner Kenney, in the practice of law there is a saying about getting blood out of a stone. And I think it has relevance here. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said Wesch explored every avenue for reimbursement: To his credit, I believe he has tried every single way that we can think of to try to get money back from this. Theres no other option. Kenney responded: Just have to get the sheriffs department to go up to a .45 caliber. Thorpe presented a twoyear payment plan to meet medical expenses for Nicholas Dinovo, a Pine Ridge man shot by a sheriffs deputy in February. Dinovo later was charged with the felony of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. The county is responsible for inmates medical expenses under statute. Through negotiation with Shands Health Care in Gainesville, county staff reduced the total expense from $527,923.50 to $320,000, to be paid in quarterly installments with no interest charge. The board learned it would benefit from another calculation to the final certification amount of its Medicaid billing backlog. On Monday, the Florida Association of Counties hosted a conference call with the state Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to receive additional adjustments to the final certified amount the county owed. AHCA gave the county a reduction of $31,930.19, bringing down the debt that dates back to 2001 to $460,734.60. All Florida counties have been in a dispute with AHCA regarding patients eligibility for Medicaid reimbursements through inadequate residential addresses and other missing information. Commissioners agreed to pay the amount in 36 payments of $12,798.18. County staff already set aside $201,183.73, as settling the bills was intended. This sum will cover the first 15 payments.

S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS As a first-time candidate for office, Sandy Balfour didnt know what to expect. She had nothing to worry about. Balfour, a teacher at the Academy of Environmental Science in Crystal River, easily defeated challenger Rob Cummins Jr. on Tuesday to win the Republican primary for Citrus County superintendent of schools. Balfour had 68 percent of the vote over Cummins, who is principal at Cypress Creek Academy state juvenile prison in Lecanto. Participating in a primary has been a real learning experience, Balfour said. Im really looking forward to November. Balfour now faces Democrat incumbent Sandra Sam Himmel in the general election. She said she wont change her campaign strategy. Im going to keep the positive spirit, she said. I just see the need to keep moving forward. Cummins, who is somewhat related to Himmel his sister is married to Himmels brother said Balfour deserved to win. I think I got out of it what I put into it, he said. My opponent worked a lot harder than I did on this. Balfour, who has taught at all levels of public schools and is a former Crystal River High School assistant principal, said she thought Republicans were informed voters. The voters of Citrus County do their research, she said. With that research, they realized I was the better choice. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-5633228 or mwright@ chronicle online.com. Balfour beats Cummins in GOP primary Teacher aims to unseat incumbent Himmel as superintendent of schools Sandy Balfour won the GOP primary for the superintendent of schools. Hale unseats Murray M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS Bill Murray stared at the results, a stunned look on his face. Murray, an eightyear incumbent on the Citrus County School Board, lost his reelection bid to Lecanto High School computer teacher Susan Hale. The people have spoken, he said. I thought we are a pretty good school district. I dont understand it. People wanted a change. They found that change in Hale, a 13-year teacher and former bank human resources manager. Hale, who had never before sought public office, won the school board District 4 race Tuesday with 55.7 percent of the vote. I think it was a good, clean race, Hale said. I have a lot of respect for my opponent. I hope I can carry on the job hes done. Despite Citrus County having a top state-recognized school district, Tuesday was the second straight election in which an incumbent lost to a political newcomer. In 2010, Thomas Kennedy defeated Lou Miele. During the campaign Murray, who was reelected four years ago without opposition, urged voters to keep him with a school board that works well together in furthering education in Citrus County. Hale never criticized Murray or his work on the school board. Instead, she suggested the board should look at strategies to limit the disruption of teachers and students during the many weeks of standardized testing. Hale said her teaching experience is a plus because she interacts with educators in schools. I think voters are interested in some of the ideas I bring to the table, especially on the current issues, she said. Im in the buildings every day and I have some good ideas to make it better and make it a really good place for people to work. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Teacher beats school board incumbent Candidates, supporters make last-ditch effort to sway undecided minds DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle ABOVE: Red Worthington holds up a campaign sign for Hank Hemrick on Tuesday at the Citrus County Auditorium, which is a polling place for the Inverness Highlands and other areas. RIGHT: County commission candidates were well-represented at the Citrus County Auditorium. Julia McHugh showed her support for Charles Poliseno and Diana Kingree was on hand for Joe Meek. M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS With the mystery candidate now out of the way, Lynn Dostal said hes not going anywhere. Glowing from a convincing win in the Democrat primary for state House of Representatives District 34, Dostal said he isnt dropping from the race and looks forward to taking on Republican incumbent Jimmie T. Smith in the November election. I am jammin. I am ecstatic, Dostal said Tuesday night after defeating Robert Raymond Goocher with 72 percent of the vote. Grassroots campaigning has prevailed over big money. Dostal, a Hernando County special-education teacher who lives in Homosassa, has long believed Goocher was a Republican shill designed to take votes away from Independent Nancy Argenziano in the general election. Dostal initially left the race when Argenziano announced her intentions. He got back in when Goocher qualified for the ballot, but said he would still support Argenziano even if he won the primary. Hes changed his mind. I am so energized by the exposure and experience I have gotten, he said. I would feel like a failure if I dropped out. Goocher could not be reached for comment. Other than a brief interview with a reporter in June, he has not spoken with the press nor attended campaign functions. Dostal could not explain how Goocher managed 28 percent of the vote. There are some people either uninformed or they just dont care, he said. An independent electioneering committee flooded voter mailboxes with pro-Goocher material and, in the past few days, anti-Dostal messages. Dostal said he will meet with Democrat Party leaders in Citrus and Hernando counties in the coming days to map out a strategy. District 34 is all of Citrus and Hernando north of State Road 50, west of the Suncoast Parkway. He said Argenziano should consider giving up her campaign. Asked if Argenziano should drop out of the race, Dostal said: Absolutely!Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. Dostal wins primary for State House District 34 Homosassa man says Argenziano should quit now Lynn Dostal won the Democrat primary race for District 34 in the State House. A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterIt looks like voters werent dissuaded by Mike Graves past issues with the Florida Bar, giving him the nod to become the next public defender for the five-county Fifth Judicial Circuit. Graves beat Inverness attorney and Brooksville resident Bo Samargya 72.82 percent to 27.18 percent. In Citrus County, Graves beat his opponent 62.05 percent to 37.94 percent. In total, 146,240 votes were cast in the circuit and 14,732 in Citrus. Since no Democrat is challenging for the office, Graves will replace longtime Public Defender Howard Skip Babb. Babb, who has held the job since 1980, is retiring at the end of this year. Graves did not return the Chronicles call for comment by press time. Samargya, however, spoke highly of his campaign efforts and his opponent Tuesday night. Samargya saw this race as a warm-up for a potential run for state attorney. I called Mike (Graves) and congratulated him. The people have spoken and I respect the vote, Samargya said. We ran the campaign like we wanted to, and we ran hard. This is something that was really exciting and prepared me for the real race in four years when I run for state attorney, he said. The public defender race has been dominated by issues of trust and experience. Graves, a former chief assistant to Babb and in private practice in Tavares, ran on his nearly three decades as an attorney. He was Babbs chief assistant from 1984 to 1990. He has cited his experience working on judicial panels and various endorsements as indicators of peoples trust in his ability to be fair and do a good job. Graves has also apologized for being disciplined by the Florida Bar for not responding in a timely manner to their queries about complaints filed by his former clients. Samargya centered much of his campaign on Graves problems with the Florida Bar, raising the issue of trust. Samargya touted his experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney as reasons voters should support him. He also mentioned his military credentials and business experience. During the campaign, Graves said his public and private legal experience has prepared him for the role of public defender. The public defender oversees offices in Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter counties. The public defenders office represents criminal defendants who cannot afford to pay for a private attorney. The elected position pays $150,000 annually.Chronicle intern Buster Thompson contributed to this story.

Connie Mack IV after both easily won their primary elections on Tuesday. Nelson had almost 80 percent of the vote with 35 percent of the vote counted, while Mack had almost 60 percent of the vote in the GOP race. Mack will try to win back the seat once held by Macks father, Connie Mack III. Nelson won the seat in 2000 after the elder Mack retired. Both Nelson and the younger Mack have already been preparing for a head-to-head matchup after facing weak primary opposition. Mack, buoyed by the famous name he also shares with his great-grandfather, the Hall of Fame baseball manager, was immediately the favorite to win the nomination when he entered the race in November. Three other candidates dropped out ahead of the election, leaving former Rep. Dave Weldon as the bestknown candidate to challenge him. But Weldon entered the race just three months before the primary, leaving him little time to build a campaign in a state with more than 4 million registered Republicans. Nelson has already hit Mack with a negative ad that points out trouble Mack got into in his 20s with a bar fight, an arrest and road rage incidents. Its an attack used repeatedly by former Sen. George LeMiuex before he dropped out of the primary. Months before Mack got in the race, he was attacking Nelson with web videos and through political emails, calling him a lockstep liberal who supports President Barack Obamas major policies, including the health care overhaul. Mack has also criticized Nelson for trying to make the campaign about what I did as a kid and the work he did for a company that did promotions for Hooters restaurants instead of talking about the economy and the federal deficit. Mack, who is married to California Rep. Mary Bono Mack, was celebrating the victory with his family in Coral Gables, while Nelson was at his Orlando campaign headquarters.

The News Service of FloridaIn a move supporters said will lead to lower fuel costs and cleaner emissions, state regulators Tuesday approved a Progress Energy Florida proposal that will help lead to converting the Anclote power plant to all natural gas. The Public Service Commission allowed Progress to pass along costs for the $79 million project to customers in part of their monthly bills that reflects environmental expenses. Anclote, which is in the Pasco County community of Holiday, has burned both oil and natural gas. The project, which is expected to be finished in late 2013, will lead to it only using natural gas. The company and regulators say the project will reduce long-term fuel costs, which show up in another part of customers monthly bills. Also, they say it will help Progress comply with stricter federal pollution requirements. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The sight of hundreds of LKQ employees lining County Road 486 to say a final farewell to their friend and employer Lenny Damron as the hearse carrying his body to Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Beverly Hills spoke volumes. On Tuesday, Leonard Lenny Alfred Damron III was eulogized and laid to rest. The longtime Crystal River resident and businessman died Aug. 10. He was 61. To the community, Lenny was a business success, having grown a small salvage yard into a family business of regional note. The name Damron was synonymous with auto parts and repair in Citrus County. In 1981, he opened Damrons Auto Parts Inc. on County Road 486 near Crystal River. Eventually, he expanded his company to other locations, such as Gainesville, Melbourne and Atlanta, Ga. In 1998, Lenny Damron, along with sons Chad and Casey, sold the auto salvage business to Illinoisbased LKQ Corp. Lenny served as senior vice president managing LKQs self-service and heavy-duty truck divisions until his death. There were quite a few of us that started out in the salvage business back in the s and s, and we all had a certain amount of vision and drive. Lenny had a boatload of both, said Barney Thompson, a 30-year friend. His vision went beyond Crystal River and Ocala, beyond Orlando, beyond Florida. He always wanted to do things bigger and better, and it wasnt always about the money, although he did pretty well for himself. He wanted to accomplish things that no one else had done. He wanted to leave a legacy in the salvage industry and in this community, and that he did. In the early days, Mr. Damron kept a wrecker tow truck in his front yard, on call 24 hours a day, recalled the Rev. Lloyd Bertine, who grew up with Lenny Damron in Crystal River and later became his pastor at Gulf to Lake Church. Mr. Damron married Bertines cousin, Diane, so they were also family. I remember Diane had a Cadillac and she came home one time and Lenny had taken some parts off of it and sold them, Bertine said. People see people like Lenny and Diane and see how successful they are, but they paid a price to build their business. Karl Wilson, who now lives in Billings, Mont., said when he had hit a wall with his company, Mr. Damron bought it. I thought I had done all I could, but this man showed me there is no end, Wilson said. He was a go-getter, and if you were around him, he made you motivated. And the way he took the time to talk to my 13-year-old daughter he made her feel like family. I loved him like a father. To the community, Lenny Damron was almost larger than life. He and his family were generous supporters of various organizations the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs. Every year at Christmas, Lenny and Diane would bring in thousands of dollars worth of $50 Sweetbay gift cards so we could give them to people who need food, Bertine said. But he was also just Lenny. He was a jokester, a prankster, a master storyteller, Thompson said. He could make up a story that you knew probably wasnt true, but youd believe it. He could go from the boardroom discussing multimillion-dollar deals one minute and the next hed be jumping out from behind a door and scaring you. To his grandchildren, Caroline, Connor, Colby and Will, he was Poppy. They would come to his office and write on notepads. At home theyd spend time at Poppys playhouse. They were the joy of his life. Reading thoughts written by family members at the memorial service, Bertine said Mr. Damrons son Casey remembered how when he and his brother Chad were young, their dad would make them work at the shop, which Casey wasnt too fond of at the time. Hed give me a bucket and tell me to pick up nuts and bolts from the ground, but Id try to find ways to dodge work, he said. Id find conversion vans that would crank up so I could turn on the A/C and hide. Dad knew something was up when I stopped complaining about coming in to work. It didnt take long for Dad to catch me and end my party. Looking back, I thank my dad so much for the work ethic that he taught my brother and me, he said. He used to have a plaque on his desk that said: Only those who see the invisible can do the impossible. That sums up my dad. Lenny Damron wanted to leave a legacy, and he did. He was a man of deep Christian faith. He loved what he did, loved to work, loved his family and friends. An LKQ employee called him a silver lining on a dark day. He was optimistic, always looking for the good in any situation or person. As busy as he was, he took time for people. I cant say enough about Mr. Damron and the whole Damron family, said county commissioner and family friend Joe Meek. He was a wonderful man that raised a wonderful family and someone who set an example for a lot of people in this community to follow and look up to. He was an impressive person, and the Damrons are an impressive family. Its a sad loss.

Webb had 43.42 percent of the vote to edge his closest challenger, Steve Burch. Burch got 37.32 percent. Hank Hemrick came in third with 19.24 percent of the vote. The total vote cast was 14,624. Webb also thanked his army of volunteers for the great job they did on his behalf. I think things turned out the way they did because I have a proven track record. Everybody talks the talk, but I talk the talk and walk the walk, he said. Webb said he is going to stay on pretty much the message as he takes on Dawsy in the Nov. 6 election. Challenger Burch sounded a conciliatory note Tuesday night and was glad to see such high voter reaction toward him. Burch said he also wants to collaborate with primary winner Webb in the near future. It was a good campaign and I wish I couldve won, but I think thats a pretty good turnout, said Burch about his share of the votes. I congratulate Winn Webb and I hope to work together with Winn Webb. Hemrick did not return Chronicles call for comment at press time. From the start, Webb emphasized his local roots and familiarity with the sheriffs office, having served as a deputy for 17 years before retiring in 2008. That same year, he ran for and became a county commissioner. During the campaign Webb highlighted that experience, handling budgetary matters as a commissioner and his singular vote against the sheriffs offices efforts to merge with the formerly county-controlled fire services division. He also billed himself as the only fiscal conservative in the race. Burch, the former police chief of Crystal River, made extensive management experience the centerpiece of his campaign. Burch had touted his 28 years in law enforcement, 20 of which were spent in management positions, including positions where he made and executed budgets. He had vowed to streamline the agencys budget by making the necessary cuts required to put the agency on a sound fiscal footing. Burch began his career at Clearwater Police Department and was the last police chief in Crystal River before the sheriffs office took over operations in 2008. Burch also served a short stint as police chief in Lake City. Hemrick is a retired deputy warden of the New York City Department of Correction. Hemrick has run unsuccessfully for sheriff in 2004 and 2008. He also finished third in a threeway school board race. Throughout the campaign season, Hemrick has sounded one theme more than any his desire to ramp up the fight against the drug scourge. He also took issue with what he called the sheriffs offices top-heavy management structure, pointing to nearly $2 million in salaries and benefits in that area. He also stressed his concerns for upholding the Constitution, saying he would safeguard individual liberties while taking a tough stance on fighting drugs and aggressive driving. Webb has promised to place the agencys fixedwing plane on eBay his first day in office. Webb also wants to see an image overhaul in the agency with more emphasis on building a better rapport between residents and deputies. Fiscally, he wants to introduce line-item budgeting.

I am grateful to the citizens of Citrus County for the opportunity and the absolute honor and privilege to be able to work for them, Meek said. I will stay focused as hard as I can on growing the economy and making this a better place to call home. Meek speculated his performance drew voter support. Since being elected, I have worked very hard to make this county better and I have focused on economic development, trying to reduce costs because its where I was born and raised and I think people see that, Meek said. As far as expecting to win, Meek said: You never know. I worked as hard as I could. We walked to thousands of houses. We became very involved in a true grassroots effort. We came into the election hoping for the best and being positive and working hard. Heathcock was upbeat about his loss. I feel I did the best I could, Heathcock said. Joe is the best opponent I could ever run against. I feel he is a great guy. I dont take the easy road. He was a tough opponent and it was a hard race and I am proud. As for offering voters the choice to support him, Heathcock said the resultindicates that voters are happy with the way things have been going for the last four years. I pointed out many things that I had found out through my research, but obviously it just didnt resonate with voters, Heathcock said.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCrystal Rivers efforts to tidy up its charter passed with flying colors in Tuesdays elections. The 10 amendments to the charter all received overwhelming approval from voters. Some of the changes voters saw on the ballot include: Eliminating outdated wording related to prior elections and the resultant terms for each council seat. Conducting a charter review process at least once every 10 years rather than every four years, based on a belief a four-year cycle is excessive. Extending a review of all city ordinances to determine legality or obsolescence from at least once every five years to 10 years. Eliminating the charter provision relating to the outcome of a 1998 election. Eliminating the charter provision relative to term of office. C.R. voters approve all amendments Woods and Citrus Hills came in, that would make the game-breaker, Damato said. Im honored that the voters of Citrus County gave me a third term on the Board of County Commissioners. I think the voters like what the board has done in general. Although voters didnt push far enough for Kitchen, he said he expected to be neck and neck with Damato. I figured I had a 50-50 shot, Kitchen said, pointing out that he had spent far less money on his campaign than Damato spent on his. Please give Dennis my congratulations. I think we both ran a good, fair campaign, Kitchen said. Christopher-McPheeters said voters werent well informed about her policies and opinions regarding previous commission decisions, specifically the countys purchase of Ottawa Avenue from Citrus Hills. She also said her gender might have had a negative influence on the outcome. I wish that people would have been more informed, ChristopherMcPheeters said. For example, theChronicle gave an endorsement of my opponent, (Dennis) Damato, and made mention about Ottawa, and that another opponent mentioned about Ottawa, when I was the only candidate who opposed the Ottawa fiasco at the county commission. They werent really objective of me because Im a woman. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916.

The new test is designed to replicate what happens when a car strikes another car or a fixed object like a tree or utility pole. The test strikes 25 percent of a cars front end into a fivefoot rigid barrier at 40 miles per hour. The results dont bode well for non-luxury models, which will be the next to undergo the new test. Insurance Institute crash test results are closely watched by the auto industry and often lead to changes in design or safety features. Good scores are also frequently touted in car ads. NY regulator says bank settles Iran money probeALBANY, N.Y. New Yorks financial regulator said Tuesday his agency has reached a $340 million settlement with Standard Chartered Bank to resolve an investigation into whether the British bank schemed with the Iranian government to launder $250 billion from 2001 to 2007. The bank will pay the civil penalty to the state and will strengthen oversight of overseas transactions. Chinese companies pull out of US stock markets BEIJING Focus Media Holding Ltd. announced its chairman and private equity firms want to buy back its U.S.-traded shares and take the Shanghai-based advertising company private. Smaller companies also are withdrawing from U.S. exchanges. Associated PressNEW YORK Shoppers are starting to spend, but business owners arent so sure their customers will keep coming back. These conflicting signals confused investors, who first bought stocks and then sold them as the day progressed Tuesday. It didnt help that there were fewer stock traders in the market as is common during the summer months, which led to lower than usual trading volume. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 2.71 points at 13,172.14. It was up as much as 53 points at midday. The broader Standard & Poors 500 index lost 0.18 point to 1,403.93 and the Nasdaq composite index fell 5.54 points to 3,016.98. Earlier, investors were energized by a surprise gain in retail sales in July. That report provided evidence that American shoppers are still spending even as their counterparts in Europe and Asia slow down. However, another report showed U.S. companies werent restocking their shelves or their warehouses fast enough, a signal that they believed shoppers werent going to continue spending. U.S. retail sales rose in July by the largest amount in five months as Americans spent more on cars, furniture and clothes. The 0.8 percent gain was better than analysts were expecting and showed that U.S. consumers spend at stores after cutting back in the April to June period. JJ Kinahan, a strategist at online broker TD Ameritrade, said the increase wasnt enough to justify a significant upward move in the stock market. Consumers are still cautious, Kinahan said. Even numbers that are marginally better look good when compared to a trough. Investors did sell low-risk assets, sending the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note up to 1.73 percent from 1.66 percent late Monday. Stocks were held back by a report that U.S. companies barely increased their inventories in June. The slower restocking trend could act as a drag on overall economic growth. When businesses place fewer orders, factory production slows. The data points to the fact that the economy is stabilizing at a lower level, said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at investment bank Rockwell Global Capital. While the economy isnt slipping further, it leaves open the possibility of the Feds support for the economy to grow at a better rate. Many economists believe the Federal Reserve will try to stimulate the economy by launching another program of buying government bonds and mortgage-backed securities to keep interest rates low. They will be closely watching Fed Chairman Ben Bernankes speech on Aug. 31 at an annual economic conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo. With most European leaders and Washington away on vacation, there hasnt been much news to move the market. In the last seven trading days the Dows biggest move was a 51-point gain on Aug. 7. As is typical of late summer months, trading volumes have also been light, averaging between two and three billion shares a day, as opposed to four and five billion during the rest of the year. Home Depot jumped $1.89 to $54.71. The worlds biggest home-improvement retailer posted a 12 percent jump in net income and increased its earnings forecast for the entire year. Home Depots fortunes are closely tied to the housing market, which has been improving. On Thursday, the Department of Commerce releases the housing starts and building permits report for July. The number of declining stocks narrowly outpaced rising ones on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading volume was very light at 2.9 billion shares. Among other stocks that also made big moves: Groupon plummeted 27 percent. The online coupon companys stock closed at an all-time low of $5.51, down $2.04 after its sales growth fell short of expectations partly due to worsening conditions in Europe. Estee Lauder rose $5.12, or 9 percent, to $60.13. The beauty company, whose brands include MAC and Aveda, reported results that topped Wall Street expectations. The company also raised its revenue forecast for the year. NCR Corp. fell close to 10 percent following allegations that the ATM maker has violated sanctions and a federal corruption law by operating a subsidiary in Syria and working with blacklisted banks in the country. NCRs stock was off $2.47 at $22.65.

Page A10 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2012 Thanks, all I would like to thank all 400plus supporters and attendees at the Scott Adams barbecue fundraiser. I am honored and proud to have the type of community support we have. I would like to give special thanks for putting on the event to Scott and Angie Carnahan and Bo and Jesslynn Rooks. In an unbelievable turnout and success, lets hope our future can start looking like this. Scott Adams Inverness Business and govtHow successful was Enron Corporation? Shareholders lost nearly $11 billion when Enrons stock price, which hit a high of $90 per share in mid-2000, plummeted to less than $1 by the end of November 2001. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission began an investigation. On Dec. 2, 2001, Enron filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, a national law. Enrons $63.4 billion in assets made it the largest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history until WorldComs failure. On July 21 2002, telecommunications giant WorldCom Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection about a month after disclosing it had inflated profits by nearly $4 billion through deceptive accounting. Government is for the people, not for the businesses. Taxpayers are not shareholders. Government does not make a profit, and we do not receive dividends. With good government, our people are healthier, our roads are safer, and our air and water cleaner. With good government we sleep well at night under the protection of police, fire and sheriff departments. We have fewer workplace injuries. We are educated by teachers working hard in public schools. What does business really offer? Employment and products. Ethical businesses respect the workers and environment, but without government control, that can change with stockholder demands. Time and time again, the bottom line destroys our country. There is no government control in the chemical extraction of natural gas. This fracking is destroying our countrys water and causing earthquakes in areas that have never before experienced these catastrophes. Business and government working together for the good of the people should be the goal of our country, but too many people are denigrating government. They are too busy looking for fault in government without seeing the blessings we all enjoy daily. Many businesses look for the bottom line at the expense of our country and its citizens, but governments profitsare healthy and safe citizens.Kathy Dobronyi Inverness S ome random thoughts on Mitt Romneys selection of Paul Ryan for vice president: Have you ever voted for a candidate because of his running mate? Me neither. No president has significantly helped himself with a vice-presidential pick since 1960, when Lyndon Johnson delivered much of the South for John F. Kennedy. Far more often, the second banana hurts the ticket. Consider Sarah Palin four years ago and Dan Quayle in 1988. But John McCain was going to lose anyway, and hoped Palin would be a gamechanger. And the first President Bush was going to beat Michael Dukakis anyway, despite the arrival of Quayle. That said, with his pick, Romney helped himself with the most conservative element of the Republican Party. Because of his record as Massachusetts governor the state health care plan, his support of abortion as a U.S. Senate candidate, advocacy of an assaultweapons ban a large segment of the GOP still considers Romney too moderate, or worse, squishy. They would have liked Sen. Marco Rubio more, but 18 months in statewide office does not imbue veep-level gravitas (see: Palin, Sarah.) Speaking of Florida, our 29 electoral votes are certainly needed by President Obama, but absolutely essential for Romney. Thats why the Democrats might actually stop talking about Romneys taxes and start reminding voters here about Ryans work as budget chairman. Expect the words Medicare vouchers in Obama television spots and mailings, particularly in retirement enclaves. Scaring old people is a time-tested tactic for Florida Democrats, and the Republicans keep giving them ammunition. Even if Romney had put Betty White on his ticket, Democrats would have said that under his economic recovery plan, your grandma is a shovel-ready project. Ryan does nothing for Romney among women, black and Hispanic voters, three voting segments in which Republicans badly need to show improvement. Condoleeza Rice may have helped Romney with blacks and women and brought the foreign-policy credentials Romney lacks but it wouldnt have been nearly enough, against Obama. Rubio would have fired up the far-right part of the party, and could have spoken Spanish at campaign events in Arizona and New Mexico. Almost certainly, he would have moved Florida into the red column. But the Republican record on immigration isnt going down well with Hispanics certainly not in contrast to Obamas recent actions regarding children of undocumented immigrants. Any relaxing of the rhetoric would be labeled amnesty by the Reluctant Romney-ites of the Right, causing many to stay home. Besides, any conciliatory message would have to come from the top guy, not his understudy. When introducing him in Norfolk, Romney made a point of mentioning Ryans anti-abortion Catholicism and his Midwestern family values. Thats probably as close as the campaign wants to get to the culture wars, which fires up conservative GOP voters but makes independents uneasy. During the Republican primaries, Obama and the Democrats were decrying a supposed war on women. Now, were sure to see reminders from both sides about the coverage of birth control services under Obamas national health care plan, which appeals particularly to students and young working women. But the laws provision that employer-provided health insurance cover contraceptive services alienates devout Catholics. Then there are style points. Ryan brings 14 years of Washington experience, of which Romney has none, and some strong if controversial credentials on fiscal policy. If any powerful congressional committee chairman can run as an outsider, it will be Ryan, and the contrast to Joe Biden will be obvious. And before Democrats dismiss him as a youthful upstart, they might want to consider that, at 42, hes only a year younger than Kennedy was in 1960 and hes been in Congress five years longer than Obama was when he ran for president. A bit of trivia: Who was the last sitting House member elected vice president? In 1932, Franklin Roosevelt needed a Southerner to balance the ticket and chose House Speaker John Nance Garner of Texas. Cactus Jack is mainly remembered for saying the vice presidency aint worth a pitcher of warm spit, although many historians agree he actually referred to another bodily fluid and the polite press of the era cleaned up the quote.

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 Restrictions promote conservation O n July 31, the Southwest Florida Water Management District lifted its Phase III one-day-a-week watering restrictions that had been in place since March 10, 2012. On the surface it seems logical to lessen the watering restrictions when you have standing water left over from Tropical Storm Debby and regular summer rains. But upon closer inspection, it seems redundant to allow more watering when Mother Nature is providing more than enough water to maintain healthy vegetation. Citrus County is still under Phase I two-day-aweek watering restrictions until the end of the year. Rainfall is cyclical. Just two years ago, the district lifted a one-day-a-week restriction that had been in place for three years. In the long view, wouldnt it make more sense to stick with a one-day-a-week watering approach? Heres the logic. If the district is experiencing drought, it will invoke the one-day-a-week restriction and leave it in place for long periods of time. On the flip side, if the rains are falling regularly and the aquifer and river/lake levels are normal, why is it necessary to water more than once a week? The natural elements will take care of the rest. Additionally, lowering the restrictions can send the wrong message that conservation is no longer needed. When the district imposes stricter watering rules during the drought and lifts them when the rainfall resumes, it sends a message that we only need to be conservative when there is a drought. Conservation should be a yearround mindset that is continually practiced. With lawn watering accounting for about half of the water used by residences, limiting the amount of water used in watering lawns is the easiest conservation measure of all. Adopting long-term stringent watering restrictions would underscore the message that while more water is currently available, clean fresh water is a limited resource and we all need to conserve to assure an adequate supply of water over the long term. THE ISSUE: District eases watering rules.OUR OPINION: Take a long-term view. OPINIONS INVITED The opinions expressed in Chronicle editorials are the opinions of the newspapers editorial board.

Associated PressORLANDO One of the top young Scrabble players in the country has been kicked out of the games national championship tournament in Florida after he was caught hiding blank letter tiles, organizers said Tuesday. John D. Williams Jr., executive director of the National Scrabble Association, said a male player was ejected from the 350-player event in Round 24 of the 28-round event. The cheating was spotted by a player at a nearby table, who noticed the ejected player conceal a pair of blank tiles by dropping them on the floor, organizers said. Blank tiles can be used as wild card letters. When confronted by the tournament director, he admitted to it, organizers said. Williams, who has served as executive director for 25 years and co-authored a book on the popular Hasbro board game in 1993, said this was the first incident of cheating at a national tournament. However, he said its been known to occur at smaller, regional events. It does happen no matter what. People will try to do this, he said. Its the first time its happened in a venue this big though. Its unfortunate. The Scrabble world is abuzz. The Internet is abuzz. Williams would not identify the player by name or age because hes a minor. There are four divisions and he was competing in Division 3. He said Division 3 is equal to any great living-room player out there. In Scrabble matches, players accumulate points during one-on-one matches by pulling random letter tiles from a bag of 100 and trying to create words. A total of 98 tiles have letters on them and two are blank. Blank tiles can be used as wild card letters to complete words. The ejected player had concluded a previous game and never reinserted the blank tiles into his bag in an attempt to use them at his discretion in the next game, organizers said. Players in the national tournament format play multiple matches over the five-day event. The winner is determined by a combination of their overall record against other players and the cumulative point spread over the entire tournament. The ejected player forfeited his wins. Williams said there is usually good self-policing in the Scrabble world as players try to protect the integrity of statistics on the competitive circuit. Thats because national events draw players young and old. The leader entering Wednesdays final day of competition is National and Scrabble AllStar Champion David Gibson, a 61-year-old math teacher from Spartanburg, S.C. The winner receives a $10,000 prize. It gets pretty deep. Were one step away from drug testing, Williams joked. While Williams said this was the first time the national tournament has dealt with scandal, the incident could shine a brighter light on other advantages players have been known to employ. Even before Tuesdays cheating ejection, it was well-known that some players take minerals known as alleged brain boosters. But no steroids so far, Williams quipped. can do for Citrus County and I just feel totally honored to be elected a county commissioner. Adams said voters turned out for him, because were going to do the right thing. Were going to represent the people of Citrus County. Adams said he expected to win, because the people were so supportive the whole time. It was amazing. It was a growing experience that Ive never had before, but it is an honor to have people supporting you from all over, from all walks of life. I felt pretty good about the whole race because everybody just stayed supportive. Even when the Chronicle went negative on me, I got more support from it. Coming in second was Charles Poliseno with 6,724 votes or 27.43 percent. Poliseno said he gave it his best shot. We stuck to our game plan to run a clean, positive race, Poliseno said. We knew we wanted to run on the issues. Asked if he thought third-party mail pieces and automated phone calls against him may have swayed some voters, Poliseno said: I dont know if the negative campaigning had an impact or not. Theodora Teddi Rusnak had 4,487 votes cast for her, coming in third with 18.30 percent in her first race. Although Im disappointed with the results, Im not disappointed with my performance and Im even more amazed at all the support I got, Rusnak said. I had a wonderful team that was behind me and supported me every minute of the run. I want to thank all of the voters who voted for me as well as my very special group of supporters, my team. I think its going to be a very interesting four years ahead of us. The fourth candidate, Mike Smallridge, polled 3,449 votes or 14.07 percent. Smallridge had a good attitude about the outcome. Congratulations to Scott, Smallridge said. I can only control what I did and we worked as hard as we could. The people have spoken, so Scotts got to get to work.

ADAMS Continued from Page A1 Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Republican state Senate candidates who had the backing of top legislative leaders won their primaries with surprising ease on Tuesday. Former Senate President Tom Lee whose political career appeared to be over six years ago defeated Rep. Rachel Burgin by getting 59 percent of the vote in a Hillsborough County state senate primary. The race had gotten so heated at one point that the Republican Party of Florida chairman warned against character attacks. Meanwhile in northeast Florida former Rep. Aaron Bean won 64 percent of the vote in a tough GOP state Senate primary against Jacksonville Rep. Mike Weinstein. Today the residents of Senate District 4 did not just vote for me; they voted for positive, conservative leadership that is focused on creating jobs, helping our small businesses compete and prosper, and creating opportunities for our states children, Bean said in a statement. Several GOP Senate candidates including Rep. John Legg who won their primaries had the backing of incoming Senate President Don Gaetz. Legg who has no opponent in November won his primary with nearly 63 percent of the vote. Gaetz, R-Niceville, and other top senators were able to raise millions in contributions from outside groups that was then used to bolster the campaigns of candidates such as Bean. This historic infusion of civic commitment, practical experience and fresh ideas will change the Senate and chart Floridas course for the next decade, Gaetz said in a statement. Florida voters on Tuesday weighed in on some 70 state House and state Senate primaries. The legislative elections follow the once-a-decade job of drawing new districts. Despite the redrawn districts, 39 candidates were elected without opposition in June. Some legislators were forced to run in reconfigured districts, but most incumbent legislators won their primaries. Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, is being forced to leave the Senate due to term limits, but he easily won a GOP primary for a state House seat in Pasco County. In a hard-fought Democratic primary, Rep. Geraldine Thompson defeated Victoria Siplin, the wife of State Sen. Gary Siplin. Thompson won 56 percent of the vote for the central Florida state Senate seat. But Democratic primaries for state senate seats in Palm Beach County and MiamiDade county were considered too close to call Tuesday. GOP senators backed by leaders win easily Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, is being forced to leave the Senate due to term limits, but he easily won a GOP primary for a state House seat in Pasco County. Boy caught cheating at Scrabble tournament Players in the national tournament format play multiple matches over the five-day event. ... The winner receives a $10,000 prize. It gets pretty deep.

Morsis powers rival Mubaraks CAIRO Egypts Islamist president has given himself the right to legislate and control over the drafting of a new constitution. He has installed at the top of the powerful military a defense minister likely to be beholden to him. Under Mohammed Morsis authority, officials have moved to silence influential critics in the media. And though a civilian, he declared himself in charge of military operations against militants in the Sinai Peninsula. Over the weekend, Morsi ordered the retirement of the defense minister and chief of staff and reclaimed key powers the military seized from him days before he took office June 30. With that, Egypts first freely elected president amassed in his own hands powers that rival those of his ousted authoritarian predecessor, Hosni Mubarak. There are fears Morsi and his fundamentalist group, the Muslim Brotherhood, could turn the clock back on the countrys tumultuous shift to democratic rule and pursue their goal of some day turning the most populous Arab nation into an Islamic state. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Bombs kill 46 across Afghanistan Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Suicide bombers launched multiple attacks in a remote corner of southwestern Afghanistan near the Iranian border Tuesday, killing dozens of people including shoppers buying sweets for a Muslim holiday and leaving charred and smoldering bits of cookies and dried fruit among the bodies on the ground. A separate market bombing, this one in northern Afghanistan, brought the overall death toll to 46, most of whom were civilians. It was the deadliest day for Afghan civilians this year. The attacks in provinces on opposite ends of the country Nimroz in the southwest and Kunduz in the north come as Taliban insurgents and their allies step up their assaults in a display of force that often results in civilian carnage. Militants are especially trying to weaken the stilldeveloping Afghan security forces, who are to assume control of security across their homeland in 28 months when most foreign combat troops will have left. The Taliban want to expand their influence show that they are everywhere, said Afghan political analyst Jawid Kohistani. They want to show that the Afghan police are not strong enough so they are targeting the security forces and the government. The scope of the attacks in Nimroz, which has seen relatively few insurgent attacks over the past year, was surprising. The bombings took place in the provincial capital, Zaranj, where militants wearing suicide vests detonated their explosives in various neighborhoods, provincial police chief Musa Rasouli said. At least 25 civilians and 11 police were killed, he said. The Nimroz provincial capital lies about 6 miles from the Iranian border. Associated Press Afghans stand near a bus hit Tuesday morning by a remote control bomb on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. The bomb killed at least eight Afghan civilians who were traveling just northwest of the Afghan capital, police said. Tapped out Associated PressCHAMPAIGN, Ill. After months of record-breaking heat and drought, many rural Americans who rely on wells for water are getting an unwelcome surprise when they turn on their faucets: The tap has run dry. The lack of running water can range from a manageable nuisance to an expensive headache. Homeowners and businesses are being forced to buy thousands of gallons from private suppliers, to drill deeper or to dig entirely new wells. Mary Lakins family drained the last of its well water late last month in the small northern Indiana community of Parr. Since then, Lakin, her husband and two children have bathed and done laundry at relatives homes and filled buckets from their backyard pool every time they need to flush a toilet. Having water is just something you take for granted, she said. Its a big hassle, but were surviving. No one tracks the number of wells that go dry, but state and local governments and well diggers and water haulers report many more dead wells than in a typical summer across a wide swath of the Midwest, from Nebraska to Indiana and Wisconsin to Missouri. Its not unusual for rural wells to stop producing toward the end of a hot summer. But this year is different. Some of the same wells that are known to run dry in August or September, instead ran out in June. Water suppliers and well drillers across the Midwest say theyre working long hours to keep up with demand. Its seven days a week, man, said Carl Marion, a water hauler in Athens, Ill., north of Springfield. I work until 12 or 1 oclock every single night. Wells are typically drilled 30 or 50 feet down. Some go hundreds of feet before hitting water. And the deeper the well, the more expensive it is, with costs starting at several thousand dollars and climbing in extreme cases into tens of thousands. In the summer, when lawns, gardens, pools and livestock all drive up use, water levels can drop below a wells pump. If rain doesnt replenish the supply, sometimes the only option is to drill deeper or dig an entirely new well. Older wells are particularly vulnerable because they may not hold water as efficiently or they may have been dug in places where most of the water is gone. Its sort of Darwinism, said George Roadcap, a hydro-geologist with the Illinois Water Survey. The weak wells get shaken out at a time like this. Many people are using wells that are a hundred years old. Associated Press Tony Frost, of Frost Farms, lines up a hose Aug. 3 into a 1,000-gallon water tank in Tallula, Ill., as he fills it to take back to the farm for his cattle. After months of drought, the central Illinois creeks and ponds that the 300 cows and calves drink from on the farm are dry or close to it. Frost has to buy and haul water, about 4,000 gallons a day, split up in four trips to different pastures. Many well users find their faucets are running dry Higher retail spending lifts hopes for economy Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans increased their retail spending in July by the most in five months, opening their wallets after a frugal spring and offering hope that the slumping economy may rebound in the second half of the year. Retail spending rose in every major category, from electronics and sporting goods to furniture, building supplies and garden equipment. The report from the government followed one earlier this month that showed hiring strengthened in July. Overall retail sales rose 0.8 percent from June to July, the Commerce Department said. It was the sharpest increase since February, and it followed three months of declines. The stepped-up spending was evident in a flurry of retail earnings reports for the second quarter, which ended in late July. Home Depot, the nations largest home improvement retailer, said healthy sales of paint, bathroom accessories and kitchen installations helped lift its net income 12 percent. Macys raised its annual earnings guidance last week after reporting a 16 percent increase in net income in the second quarter. TJX Cos., which sells discounted brand names under such store banners as T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods, said its secondquarter net income jumped 21 percent on better samestore sales. People are spending a little more and feeling a little better about the economy, said James Donnelly, a sales associate at Bostonbased Tadpole, which sells childrens clothing and toys. Associated Press A Home Depot sign is seen Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn. The Home Depot Inc. is feeling more optimistic about the recovery of the housing market after customers spent more on remodeling and repair projects in the second quarter. Associated PressWASHINGTON Come January, be prepared for fewer air traffic controllers, FBI agents, border patrol officers and park rangers, as well as lower farm and winter heating subsidies. Less meat might get inspected. Furloughs will likely sweep across the government. Even the weather service could be affected. The looming funding crisis in domestic spending is the result of automatic across-the-board cuts that go into effect Jan. 2 because of Washingtons inability so far to reach a budget deal for achieving less red ink in the future. The idea behind the automatic cuts, called a sequester in Washington parlance, was to force the warring sides to agree on a deal to slash out-of-control deficits that require the government to borrow 33 cents of every dollar it spends. The sequester was intentionally designed to be harsh if the negotiators couldnt agree and they havent yet. Military personnel would be exempt from the cuts, but neither Congress nor the White House would be spared. While Republican defense hawks are up in arms over $55 billion in cuts that would slam the Pentagon next year and wreak havoc in the jobsrich defense industry, theres been little attention paid to a matching $55 billion cut from domestic programs. And those are the cuts most Americans are likely to notice. The situation on the domestic side is just as bad as the situation on the defense side, but you dont have as many contractors who are willing to lobby and scream publicly, said budget expert Richard Kogan of the liberal-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The impact of the cuts is shrouded in debate and mystery. Alarmists warn smaller airports would have to close for lack of air traffic controllers and say meat plants could be temporarily shuttered for a lack of inspectors. Others say agency managers will be able to mitigate much of the impact. Some of the biggest and most important programs are exempt from the cuts entirely: Social Security, Medicaid, food stamps, veterans health care and federal employee pensions. Medicare cuts would be limited to 2 percent. But farm subsidies would be cut, as would federal courts, the National Weather Service and food aid for pregnant women.

Morris picked as Miamis starting QBCORAL GABLES Stephen Morris went into Miamis training camp expecting to be the Hurricanes starting quarterback. With more than two weeks left, the job is his. Morris will be the starter when the Hurricanes open the season at Boston College on Sept. 1, having won the job over Ryan Williams. Morris started the first game of Miamis season a year ago at Maryland, filling the role when Jacory Harris served a one-game suspension for NCAA violations. He completed 19 of 28 passes in that game, and was just 7 for 9 the rest of the season as a backup. Former Miami DB Armstrong enrolls at NAIA Faulkner MONTGOMERY, Ala. Former Miami safety RayRay Armstrong has enrolled at Faulkner University and hopes to play for the NAIA team. Faulkner coach Brent Parker says Armstrong will practice Wednesday while awaiting clearance from the NAIA Eligibility Center. Miami kicked Armstrong off the team in July. He was suspended for four games to start last season because he broke NCAA rules by accepting gifts from a former Miami booster. He missed another game while the school checked if other violations were committed when Armstrong had dinner with a friend who works in a public relations firm that handles professional athletes. Barker says Armstrong is a solid student and we felt like being at Faulkner would be a benefit to him and potentially our football program. Cameron excited as US prepares to play Mexico The United States will be trying to beat Mexico in Mexico for the first time when the regions powers meet in an exhibition game Wednesday night. The Americans are 0-23-1 against El Tri in Mexico, including 0-19-1 in the thin air in Mexico City. Both teams are preparing for World Cup qualifiers next month, with the U.S. playing Jamaica twice. Mexico is celebrating its gold medal in the Olympics last weekend.

Gerald McCoy had only one tackle in Tampa Bays preseason opener. And no sacks but no matter. He was just happy to be on the field again. I had a blast, McCoy said. I havent played a real game since Week 5 (last season), but it felt good. McCoy is the key element of the Bucs emphasis on building a defensive line in the NFL drafts of 2010 and 2011. Starting with McCoy as the third overall pick in 2010, the Bucs (No. 26 in the AP Pro32) used their top two picks in consecutive drafts on defensive lineman. They have almost nothing to show for it. The Bucs have been last in the NFL in sacks for two straight seasons, and they gave up a league-high 156 rushing yards per game in 2011. Injuries have been a big part of the problem. DaQuan Bowers, who was drafted in the second round in 2011, will start this season on the physically unable to perform list with a torn Achilles tendon. Brian Price, drafted in the second round after McCoy, missed most of his rookie year and was traded to Chicago last month. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound McCoy played in only six games last year because of injuries to both biceps. He has missed 13 games in his Bucs investment in linemen showing slim returns Associated Press Miami Dolphins Reggie Bush runs with the ball Friday as Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy attempts to tackle at a preseason game in Miami. See BUCS / Page B3 Baxter signs with Murray State J.M. SORACCHI Staff WriterUsed to working through games quickly from the pitchers mound, Lecanto High School graduate Sheldon Baxter had a collegiate baseball offer materialize in much the same fashion. Baxter, who left Lecanto in May as one of the most accomplished athletes on the diamond in school history, will be playing Division I baseball after signing with Murray State University in Murray, Ky. Baxter himself admitted his options were limited, but he did enough in his three full years as a Panther and in workouts to convince Murray State (known as the Thoroughbreds in baseball and as the Racers in every other sport) he was worth athletic scholarship money. The southpaw starting pitcher credited Lecanto teacher Brian Donovan with helping him get connected with the Thoroughbreds. Mr. Donovan first told me about (Murray State), Baxter said. I went up there for a visit last week (and) it was really nice. The campus is very nice, theres smallish class sizes and a lot of academic support. Murray State went 23-33 overall in 2012, with an 8-19 mark in the Ohio Valley Conference. Associated PressCORTLAND, N.Y. The most important call of Tim Tebows day comes far away from the huddle. Its usually sometime at night, when football is the furthest thing on the New York Jets backup quarterbacks mind. Thats a rare moment these days for Tebow, particularly during training camp. But one of his closest friends an accountability partner, as he describes him is always a phone call away to keep his priorities in order. For No. 15, that means God is No. 1. Family comes second. Football is a distant third. Hes someone I pray with, Tebow said in a recent sit-down with The Associated Press, preferring to keep his friends identity private. Hell ask me: Hey, did you get in the Word today? Were you praying today? I have him because I need someone who is always investing in me, you know? You dont ever want to become complacent. Thats very easy to do because life gets in the way. Especially when youre one of the most popular people on the planet. Tebows every move on the field is scrutinized, from how he throws to how he runs or, as was the case early in camp, how he jogs shirtless through the rain after practice. Off the field, hes easily recognized by even the most casual of football fans.

From staff reports T he first of the par-5s at Skyview will have low handicappers looking for birdies while high handicappers look to survive. Tee ShotA great design element of this dogleg left is, it challenges the low handicapper to hit a precise drive to shorten the hole, while giving the higher handicapper room to play from the tee. A large bunker and outof-bounds guard the left side of the dogleg, making for a risky proposition for the lower handicapper looking to be rewarded with a shot reaching the green in two shots. Any shot hit solidly on a path too far to the right will go through the dogleg and down into a large waste bunker. Conversely, a very generous landing area is available for the higher handicapper to fade his or her ball to the right of the trouble. After the tee shot, however, this hole gives you very little.Lay-up, approachWhat makes this hole challenging is it funnels down into a very small playing area. The landing area for the lay-up is lined on the left by a wall of sloped rough, while the right side is guarded by a massive waste bunker. Any second shot missing to the left or right will be left with a tough third shot as the hole and its green continue to get narrower. Also, anyone lucky enough to have a shot at this green in two will be taxed with a demanding shot to a very narrow green. It is guarded by a mown collection area to the left and a long grass bunker on the right. On the greenOnce on the green, nothing on the surface will tell the player which way their putts will break. However, if the player takes in the whole of the green complex, he or she will notice the green is the lowest spot on the golf course. Looking at the green from front to back, most putts will break to the right, or away from the high side of the golf course, which sits to the players left. Wayne Larsen is a golf professional at Skyview. He can be reached at golf@citrushills.com. No. 3 at Skyview challenges all handicaps Wayne Larsen LINKS WITH LARSEN D OUG F ERGUSON AP Golf WriterKIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. The next major is eight months away. The next showdown is nine days away. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are assured of being paired together next week at The Barclays for the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs. And while these playoff events are more about making money than making history, this could become meaningful down the road. Woods has never faced a rival with this kind of potential. He has never won at least three times in a year without being looked upon as the undisputed best player in golf. For the first time in his quest to break Jack Nicklaus record in the majors, the biggest challenge for Woods is no longer overcoming a failed marriage, four knee surgeries, a tender Achilles tendon or even the fact that hes simply getting older. Its another player. McIlroy and Woods have played in the same tournament 12 times this year. McIlroy has finished ahead of Woods seven times, including wins at the Honda Classic and the PGA Championship. They tied for 40th at the Masters. McIlroy has seven top 5s in those events, along with three missed cuts. This is not about where they were at a similar stage in their careers. Woods is incomparable in that regard. McIlroy has won twice in his first 16 majors as a pro. Woods won five majors in that span, including the career Grand Slam at age 24. Its about where they are now. So dominant was McIlroy at Kiawah Island, where he had rounds of 67-66 on the weekend to win the PGA Championship by eight shots, that its easy to get caught up in all things Rory. He is only 23, younger by some four months than when Woods won his second major, and he is doing things only thought possible by Woods. A record score at the U.S. Open last summer at Congressional. A record margin of victory at the PGA Championship on Sunday at Kiawah Island. McIlroy has won two majors by a combined 16 shots. To put that in perspective, only five majors have been won by eight shots or more in the past 35 years three by Woods, two by McIlroy. But lets see how this plays out. McIlroy could turn out to be like Johnny Miller, a comet on the golf horizon in the 1970s when he fired at flags and slaughtered the competition. Miller won two majors, with a 63 on the last day at Oakmont and a 66 in the final round at Royal Birkdale. Perhaps McIlroy will be like Tom Watson, who was 10 years younger than Nicklaus. Nicklaus already had the record for most majors when Watson won his first one, although Watson kept him from winning more. He beat Nicklaus twice in 1977, in the Masters and in the Duel in the Sun at Turnberry. He beat him again in 1981 at Augusta National and kept him from a record five U.S. Open titles in 1982 at Pebble Beach when Watson chipped in for birdie on the 17th hole. McIlroy is 13 years younger than Woods. They have never gone head-tohead on Sunday in a major. Ultimately, that will be the measure. Along the way, however, McIlroy is stashing away large bits of confidence that few others could when Woods was at his peak. There is no reason for McIlroy to be intimidated. His name on the leaderboard means just as much. He is a favorite in any color shirt. The main problem for Woods has been his head. His game is in great shape, and he knows it. He is pressing to win a major, to resume his pursuit of Nicklaus and shut up the critics. But this is the wrong game to try too hard. Maybe thats one lesson to take away from Kiawah. The bigger problem could turn out to be McIlroy. Facing off at FedEx Cup Woods, McIlroy to play for top title Associated Press Tiger Woods, left, and Rory McIlroy most likely will be paired together next week at The Barclays for the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

first two NFL seasons. I truly believe if I was supposed to be injured, I was supposed to be injured so theres not really anything I could do different, he said. I know each offseason I prepare harder and harder for the upcoming seasons because I know Im already two steps back. I have to prepare that much harder so I dont miss a beat, and I think I did that. Bucs coach Greg Schiano is satisfied with what little he has seen of the former Oklahoma All-American. I think hes got some elite ability, Schiano said, but its important for everybody to stay healthy. If he cant stay healthy, he cant play. Hes had a bad stretch, a bad run. Im hoping thats all behind him because hes a key to our defense. In limited playing time at Miami on Friday night, McCoy came close to making a couple of big plays. He explained his failure to finish off the tackles as just rust. As the preseason goes on and the season gets under way, thatll be all gone. In two NFL seasons, he has just four sacks to his credit. Im really not concerned with sacks, he said. Coach wants me to do my job and if I do that, the plays will come. With the defense we run, therell be ample plays for me to make. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn, the Bucs No. 1 selection in 2011, is the only one of the four picks to live up to expectations so far, and the only one to stay healthy. Clayborn appreciates what a difference McCoy could make to a defense that got pushed around in his rookie season. Hes had a good camp so Im just excited to have him back, Clayborn said. Theres four legit starters going after the quarterback, going after the running back, so its fun to have (McCoy) out there healthy. As you saw on Friday, were out there having fun. But the Bucs failed to sack a quarterback in a game in which the Dolphins threw 50 passes. Clayborn understands that its time for the defensive line to produce. Its one thing having experience, but theres also learning a defense and learning techniques and stuff and still trying to play fast, he said. PGA TourWYNDHAM CHAMPIONSHIP Site: Greensboro, N.C.

The Dolphins unveiled their new fast-paced offense in the preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday night, going without a huddle for almost half the snaps. Miami produced only seven points in a 20-7 loss, but did succeed in establishing a faster tempo. I think its awesome, quarterback Matt Moore said after the game. I think the offensive line did a great job, receivers were lined up and you can tell looking across the ball at the defense, they were a little worn out. Miami gained 354 yards against Tampa Bay, beating their 2011 regular season average of 317.4. First-year coach Joe Philbin said the Dolphins executed the nohuddle relatively well, but added the play clock too often was lower than he would have liked when the ball was snapped. Wide receiver Legedu Naanee said the no-huddle often accomplished one of its goals, keeping the defense off balance and unable to properly line up. The DBs were looking to the sideline, he said. It was good. Weve just got to continue to get better and capitalize on it. The Dolphins went without a huddle on 33 of their 71 offensive snaps, including plays nullified by penalties. By comparison, Miami used the no-huddle on 61 plays during the entire 2011 regular season and never more than 14 times in any game. Its so much faster, said second-year center Mike Pouncey. Last year we were having trouble getting the ball snapped before the end of the play clock. Now this year were trying to snap it at 24. Were going to wear teams down by the end of the game. Its definitely going to give us an advantage. Dolphins double down on hustle Associated Press Miami Dolphins wide receiver Julius Pruitt runs Friday during the second half of an NFL preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Miami. from a few years ago accompanying the story helps. It all makes things predictably tough when youre just trying to be normal. Deep down, he understands that hes anything but. Thats why Tebow, a devout Christian, leans on his faith constantly, even during the dog days of training camp when prayers and playbooks could get muddled in his mind. Theres football, wanting to get in an extra workout, wanting to go to an extra meeting, said Tebow, who is expected to be used in a variety of ways by the Jets this season. Thats when your priorities get jumbled, maybe for an hour, maybe for a day, maybe for a week or maybe for a year. I dont want that to happen to me. Its a constant battle. Its non-stop. Thats why its always good to have people around you who hold you accountable. My friend doesnt tell me what I want to hear. He tells me what I need to hear, and thats important. Tebow works hard at maintaining his image as the guy he has always been, whether hes talking about his role on the Jets (No. 17 in the AP Pro32) or speaking to a crowd of 15,000 as he did on Easter Sunday at a church in Georgetown, Texas. He has a warm, infectious smile, looks you in the eye when he speaks and has morals that would make any parent proud. Theres also his extensive charitable efforts with the Tim Tebow Foundation, which helps needy children all over the world. Being able to score touchdowns and win games is a way to get that platform, Tebow said, leaning back in a folding chair and tapping his fingers on a table. But ultimately, if thats what you do in your life and thats what your life is based on, I dont know, I feel like thats a little bit of a meaningless life. But if you can take that and do something with it like a lot of athletes do, then youre having a life of success, a life of meaning. Its not about the games that you can win. Its about the lives you can touch. BUCS Continued from Page B1 TEBOW Continued from Page B1

Thats having an impact in the seats as has some good weather, signs of life in the economy and other factors. MLB-wide attendance is up again, about 4 percent from 2011. There are more teams that have a shot, so its given teams a lot of hope, said Lou DePaoli, chief marketing officer for the Pittsburgh Pirates. MLBs eight best season attendance totals have all come in the last eight years, and this one is on pace to keep that run going. The major league average of 31,516 through Monday was up 4.3 percent from 2011s final average of 30,229, according to STATS LLC, but remains below the pre-recession highs of 32,785 in 2007 and 32,528 the following year. The average usually declines in September, after schools are back in session. The defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals have been selling an average of 3,383 more tickets per game from last year, even after losing megastar Albert Pujols. Theyre on track to hit the 3 million mark for the 14th time in the last 15 seasons. Though the Royals are sputtering, having the All-Star game in Kansas City sparked sales a bit. Theyre up 3,204 per game. I think that shows how the economy is rebounding, said Mike Swanson, vice president of communications and broadcasting. He also pointed to the teams young core of Billy Butler, Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas thats helped create interest. The National Leagueleading Cincinnati Reds got a preseason bump from new contracts for stars Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips and Sean Marshall and the trade for Mat Latos, and theyre up 1,296 per game. Their average of 29,192 tickets sold per game is on pace to beat the Great American Ball Park record from the stadiums opening in 2003. The Detroit Tigers shelled out for prize free agent Prince Fielder and are filling 7,328 more seats per game than last year. More teams in race boost MLB attendance Past eight years have set records Associated PressTORONTO The National Hockey League Players Association had made its first proposal in the latest round of collective bargaining talks with the NHL. The union says its proposal to the league includes a smaller percentage of revenues for players and an expanded revenue sharing program to help struggling teams. Donald Fehr, the executive director of the NHL Players Association, said the proposal could stabilize the industry. Fehr said players are set to surrender as much as $465 million in revenue under the proposal if the league continues to grow at an average rate. He says that number could balloon to $800 million if the league grows at the same rate it has over the last two seasons. We do believe that the proposal the players made today, once implemented, can produce a stable industry ... that can give us a chance to move beyond the recurring labor strife that has plagued the NHL the last two decades, Fehr said. Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos and Jason Spezza were among 23 players that participated in the meeting Tuesday in Toronto. An NHL proposal last month called for a significant decrease for players in revenue share by introducing new contract restrictions, including a five-year cap on deals. The NHLPA has proposed a three-year deal for a CBA with an option for a fourth, Fehr said. The proposal would have the players accepting a lower percentage of the revenues over the first three years. The fourth year would see the CBA revert to its current terms. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday he has received the unions proposal and hopes to continue talks Wednesday. Our hope is we can take care of business in the next month, Bettman said. Thats our goal. Bettman said the owners would carefully consider the latest proposal. Its clear to me that they didnt put it together in an hour or two, and as a result were going to need to take a little bit of time to evaluate it, understand it Bettman said. If were going to respond, we want to respond appropriately. The current deal expires Sept. 15. Fehr has said the players are willing to work past Sept. 15 if an agreement hasnt been signed, as long as one is on the horizon. Bettman has already said the NHL is prepared to lock out its players if no deal is reached by then. Negotiations have been under way for seven weeks. The regular season is slated to begin on Oct. 11. Fehr said the proposal, should lead to a new CBA. Players did not believe the owners initial proposal was appropriate, he said. Both sides acknowledged negotiations are firm and constructive. The NHL has had two seasons disrupted by labor disputes over the past two decades. NHL players make first offer in talks Associated Press Washington Capitals Alex Ovechkin, center, and Ottawa Senators Jason Spezza, left, follow Donald Fehr, executive director of the NHL Players Association, on Tuesday after talking to reporters following collective bargaining talks in Toronto. Fehr: Proposal aims to help stabilize industry By the end of his sophomore season in 2010, Baxter emerged as the ace of Lecantos pitching staff and did nothing to dispel that notion in his junior and senior seasons. In fact, Baxters rise coincided with the Panthers. After a .500 season in Baxters sophomore year, Lecanto went 14-12 and 1611 the last two years, including its first regional playoff berth since 1989. The Chronicles Baseball Player of the Year in 2011, Baxter struck out 67 batters while posting a 2.36 ERA and issuing just seven walks. The left-hander was even better in 2012, going 8-3 with 81 strikeouts in 81 innings and turning in a 1.03 ERA. He could have had 20 wins over the last two years if we had more offense and made a few more plays behind him, said Lecanto baseball coach Dave Logue. Theyre getting a great player, a great pitcher and a great competitor. The former Panther tops out in the low 80s with his fastball but makes up for it by throwing four pitches (he also has a changeup, curveball and splitter) for strikes at any time. Besides his eye-popping statistics, Baxter shined in the biggest moments for his team. In the District 6A-6 semifinals with a spot in the regional playoffs on the line, Baxter threw a completegame shutout and scored the Panthers lone run in a 1-0 victory over Springstead. Baxter followed that up with a 10-strikeout game in a regional quarterfinal against South Lake but ended up on the wrong side of a one-run game. During his senior year, he also became the first Lecanto pitcher to win three Bat Games against Crystal River. That stuck out to Donovan as much as anything. Three consecutive years, he defeated Crystal River in the Bat Game, Donovan said. Hes got great character, a great family and hes a good student. Hes got the wherewithal to be a good pitcher. Theres a lot of guys who have tools at that level, Donovan continued, but when they get on the mound, they dont have the mental capacity to get through adversity ... Sheldon does. Murray State pitching coach and recruiting coordinator Chris Cole was the main point of contact with Baxter and shares a bit in common with the lefty Cole grew up in Citrus County before playing baseball before attending Hernando High School. Coles brother Zac, an assistant at University of Tennessee at Martin, is a former Crystal River High School standout who pitched in the Baltimore Orioles organization. Although the Citrus County connection is nice, Cole pointed out that Baxter wouldnt be attending Murray State if he couldnt play ball. Were not in this as a charitable organization, Cole said. Were in this to win as many games as we can. If we didnt feel like he was good enough to pitch here, we wouldnt have offered him (a scholarship). Logue thinks Murray State, and Chris Cole, will be a good fit for Baxter. I played with Chris growing up, Logue said. I know hes going to take care of (Sheldon). J.M.

The Braves began the day 5 1/2 games behind first-place Washington in the NL East, their biggest deficit since trailing by 6 games on July 5. Jonny Venters, Luis Avilan and Craig Kimbrel completed the shutout.

Left-handed reliever Josh Edgin came in to face the lefty-hitting Bruce, who sent a drive into the left-field seats. It was Bruces 23rd homer of the season and second in the Reds last two games both off lefties.Astros 10, Cubs 1CHICAGO Brett Wallace and Fernando Martinez each hit three-run homers to back Lucas Harrells eight strong innings and the Houston Astros beat the Chicago Cubs 10-1.

Kuroda held Texas hitless until Elvis Andrus infield single leading off the seventh, outpitching All-Star lefty Matt Harrison in a crisp duel at Yankee Stadium. The right-hander walked two and struck out five in his fourth career shutout and second this season. The surging Yankees won for the sixth time in seven games.

Chen allowed at least one hit in each inning but was effective in minimizing the damage. Beckett (5-10) surrendered six runs and six hits, including two home runs, in 5 1-3 innings. Its been a nightmare season for the right-hander, 1-6 in 12 starts since May 20. White Sox 3, Blue Jays 2 TORONTO Jose Quintana snapped a five-start winless streak and the Chicago White Sox held off the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 for a rare victory at Rogers Centre.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed only three singles in seven innings, and the Kansas City Royals rolled to a 5-0 win over the Oakland Athletics. Guthrie, who struck out a season-high eight, ran his scoreless streak to 15 innings. He has yielded eight hits and struck out 14 in his past two starts, victories over the As and the Chicago White Sox. Guthrie (5-12) is 2-3 in five starts with the Royals, who acquired him in a July 20 trade with Colorado for left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. Tim Collins and Greg Holland completed the shutout for Kansas City. Collins struck out all three batters he faced in the eighth inning, boosting his total to 77 a Royals strikeout record for a left-handed reliever.Tigers 8, Twins 4MINNEAPOLIS Miguel Cabrera became the first player to reach 100 RBIs this season with a run-scoring single and Doug Fister pitched eight strong innings for the Detroit Tigers in an 8-4 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Associated Press Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas and host Jay Leno talk during a taping of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in Burbank, Calif. Woodward book to take on Obama NEW YORK The U.S. economy is about to get the Bob Woodward treatment. The next book by the awardwinning investigative reporter and bestselling author will document how President Barack Obama and congressional leaders responded to the economic crisis and where we stand now. Publisher Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday the book will be called The Price of Politics and will come out Sept. 11. On Sept. 10, ABCs Diane Sawyer will have the first interview with Woodward, to be aired on World News. Woodward will sit with George Stephanopoulos on publication day for a live interview on Good Morning America. George Jones to hit road 2013 NASHVILLE, Tenn. Country music icon George Jones said hes ready for one last goround on tour before retiring from the road. Jones said in a statement Tuesday that 2013s The Grand Tour will be his last after more than 50 years on the road. He plans about 60 dates and said its hard to quit doing what he loves, but the time has come. At 81, Jones is widely considered the greatest living country singer and his contributions to the genre such as He Stopped Loving Her Today and White Lightning remain standards. Hes back on the road this year after postponing or canceling some dates due to an upper respiratory infection that led to a pair of hospital stays. The news release also says Jones will soon begin working on a new album with Dolly Parton. The Dandy comic book may end LONDON Britains longest-running comic book is facing closure after 75 years in print. The publisher of The Dandy said Tuesday it is reviewing all of its magazine titles to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing publishing industry. Circulation of the weekly comic book, first published in 1937 and best-known for cartoon cowboy Desperate Dan and Korky the Cat dropped to less than 7,500 in the second half of last year. At its peak in 1950, it sold some 2 million copies. Scotland-based DC Thomson stressed it has yet to decide on the future of The Dandy, but will ensure all of its characters live on in other platforms hinting that their adventures may soon be available only online. L YNN E LBER AP Television WriterLOS ANGELES Olympic champion Gabby Douglas basked in the Tonight spotlight and admiration of fellow guest Michelle Obama, but the teenager already is thinking ahead to 2016. Host Jay Leno, who noted Douglas last name was an anagram for USA gold, asked Monday if the gymnast intended to compete in the next Summer Games, in Rio de Janeiro. Oh, definitely, she replied, reaffirming previous statements. The 16-year-old looked like a winner, dressed in a gold metallic skirt and a fitted, black motorcycle jacket. Her hair, worn in a utilitarian bun during the Olympics, was gathered in a chic ponytail. Her best accessory were the two gold medals she carried onstage, handing one to Leno and the other to Mrs. Obama for closer inspection. I dont even deserve to hold this, Leno said later as he returned it. Douglas became the third consecutive U.S. athlete and first AfricanAmerican to win the all-around title. She and her teammates gave the U.S. its first Olympic title in womens gymnastics since 1996. Leno asked Douglas about meeting Prince Williams wife, who offered her congratulations to the team, including Aly Raisman. It was definitely an exciting experience. ... Aly told her she liked her fashion, and she was like, Well, I love your leos (leotards), Douglas said. She admitted indulging in postOlympics fast food to the wrong person: healthy eating advocate Mrs. Obama, who teased the champion. Youre setting me back, Gabby, Obama told her. Sorry! replied the athlete, who confessed to chowing down on a McDonalds breakfast sandwich to celebrate her victories. But she impressed Mrs. Obama and Leno with a detailed description of how, starting at age 6, she learned to navigate the 4-inch-wide balance beam. The host wanted to know if the dream of winning matched the reality. I think its very different, and when I mean different, its in a better way, Douglas replied. I mean, I never thought I would be doing the show with the first lady, or even you, Jay. Leno started to reply, when Mrs. Obama jumped in. Even you too, Jay! she said. On another sports-related topic, Leno put the first lady on the spot about what he called this whole kiss cam thing at a recent basketball game. Last month, she and President Barack Obama were at a U.S. Olympic mens basketball team exhibition game in Washington when the arenas Kiss Cam panned to them. She appeared to shake her head no to a smooch. Thats not what happened, Michelle Obama told Leno. I had just walked in and sat down, and I just saw my face on the Jumbotron. And Im still a little embarrassed. ... I didnt see the kiss cam part, she said. After the couple was booed, daughter Malia set them straight. She was just disgusted with us, Obama recounted. She said, Why didnt you kiss? The 14-year-old quickly proved her skills as a problem-solver. Ive arranged for you to get another chance on the kiss cam, she told her parents, according to the first lady. The president delivered, giving the first lady a big kiss on the lips and adding a peck on the forehead for good measure. Then Leno turned serious, asking Obama what shes proudest of in her husbands first term. Truly, health reform, including protection for those with pre-existing conditions, she said. GOLDEN GIRL Birthday Your progress in the year ahead is likely to be measured not only by the way you handle large issues, but by your attention to small, important matters as well. Step by step and line by line, you can make multiple impressive achievements. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) In certain situations where you are required to exercise authority over others, make your wishes known in as pleasant a way as possible, in order to get your way. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Things in general should work out rather well, due to your shrewd use of your assets and abilities. What your logic overlooks, your instincts will take care of. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Perhaps one of your greatest gifts is your ability to get along with people from all walks of life. This splendid quality is likely to be in big effect currently. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Try to focus your efforts on meaningful objectives while youre in such a good achievement cycle. Dont waste your time on matters of little significance. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It behooves you to treat developments philosophically, regardless of whether they are beneficial or harmful. A good attitude keeps things in perspective. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) An investment does not have to produce a huge profit in order to be classified as a success. Be alert for all kinds of opportunities, both big and small. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Should a difficult decision vie for your attention, face up to it courageously. Being wishy-washy is the worst thing you can do, and would more than likely cause your defeat. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Instead of just doing what is expected of you, go for broke and produce as much as you can. Your industriousness will not go unnoticed or unrewarded. Aries (March 21-April 19) Anything you can handle yourself should not be pawned off onto someone else. While youre on a roll, others may not be, so do the chores yourself and everyone will end up happy. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Be the one who moves forward on a deal, even if those with whom youre involved dont want to come on board. Conditions favor finalizing matters to your satisfaction. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Even if you have to put your salesmanship skills to the test, it shouldnt be too hard for you to come away with what you want, regardless of how tough your prospect is. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Small details could actually be of far greater significance than the larger issues. Fortunately for you, these critical factors arent likely to escape your attention.

The reality television star from the show Dog the Bounty Hunter was to appear on another reality show, Celebrity Big Brother, but he has been denied a visa. Its something that follows you the rest of your life, no matter who you become or who you are, Chapman, 59, said Monday from Honolulu, where he lives. Im not proud of it. He was 23 in Pampa, Texas, in 1976 when he was in a car outside a house where a friend had gone inside to buy marijuana, he explained. The friend got into an argument with the dealer and shot him. In Texas in the s, if you were present, you were just as guilty, Chapman said. He and the others in the group were found guilty of murder. Chapman was sentenced to five years in prison and was paroled after 18 months. I shouldnt have went and I shouldnt have been the person I was back then, he said. But hes frustrated its keeping him from visiting his fans in the UK. It feels terrible. Im dumbfounded. I cant believe it, after all these years, especially when weve been on television for the past nine years. While hes been denied a visa to visit the UK in the past, his temporary worker visa application notes he has traveled outside the United States, including to Mexico, where he went to capture serial rapist and fugitive Andrew Luster in 2003. Former Pampa Police Department Officer Charles Love, who was the responding officer in 1976, submitted a declaration saying Chapmans role in the crime was minor, and he was a model inmate until he was granted early release. Regardless of whether it will sway the UK government, Chapman said he has waited three decades for that statement, which he sees as vindication. Im so grateful for it, he said, getting emotional.

E DUCATION Section C WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Future bright for Ala. teen with epilepsy Associated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. With her senior year about to unfold, Courtney Trantham, 17, should be looking forward to the excitement of finishing high school, catching up with friends and planning for the years ahead. While her future is bright she plans to go to college and become a forensic anthropologist shes spent her summer thus far recuperating from brain surgery, the second in her short life to control the epilepsy that has been a part of her since she was a child. Until now, she has been reluctant to talk about her seizures, the storms in her brain that have kept her out of the gymnastics she loved and other physical activity. But her family hopes that by sharing her story, people will come to understand that no one should be embarrassed for having a disability, or live in fear that he or she will be made fun of. Courtney just wants to live the life of a normal teenager. For years, Courtney tried to keep the epilepsy diagnosis to herself. She only told a couple of close friends. She didnt want anyone else to know. They might think somethings different, then theyll just stop associating with me, she said. Her mother, Stacy Trantham, felt the same way for many years. She would talk about Courtneys condition with immediate family, but few others. I just couldnt, Stacy said. Every time I would start to talk about it, I would just cry. I blamed myself for a very long time, because of what Courtney was going through. Courtneys first seizure came at age 5, while she was at a relatives house. Stacy was at work; Courtney had shown no outward symptoms of illness that day. Paramedics took her to the emergency room, but a spinal tap at the hospital revealed nothing. The second seizure happened at the home of Robert Henderson, now Courtneys MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Pleasant Grove Elementary fourth grader Jeremy Hooker, 9, sits quietly and reads in the cafeteria Monday morning during the Ext ended Day Care program at the school. Students are encouraged to silently read if they dont feel like playing games or visiting with one another. Program provides secure childrens day care We primarily provide a service for the parents, wherein the child comes to us, dropped off by the parent, goes to class, comes from class in the afternoon back to us and then gets picked up by the parent, Michelle Jones, program coordinator of Extended Day Care, said. Theres no bus transportation involved, no leaving the site. She said thats because the program, for kindergarteners through fifth-graders, is in the school cafeteria. The students familiarity with the environment is one of the big benefits of the program, according to Jones. Its safe and secure, but also its known to the children, she said. The children are being cared for in the school that they are already so familiar with. They know the playgrounds, where the bathrooms are; none of its alien to them, and that puts them at ease. We have very little separation anxiety when mom or dad drops their child off. The program is conducted across the county in most of the elementary schools, including Central Ridge, Citrus Springs, Crystal River, Floral City, Forest Ridge, Hernando, Inverness, Lecanto, Pleasant Grove and Rock Crusher elementary and primary schools.

A dozen graduate students from Illinois are headed to South Dakotas Pine Ridge Indian Reservation this week to fix roofs, repair trailer skirts and build porches in a community thats constantly battling poverty and high unemployment. The 900-mile trip west is part of an ongoing effort by MBA students from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who created the not-for-profit Kola Foundation two years ago as part of a long-term commitment to build relationships with the Oglala Lakota people. Its about getting students exposed to this community, giving them the opportunity to go out there and do some good and hopefully get motivated to come back and use their skills to help out and take over next year, said Shelly Wohaldo, a second-year MBA student who serves as Kolas chief executive officer. The groups goal is to stimulate the local economy of Pine Ridge while promoting education, improving health care and fostering hope, said Wohaldo, 26. Ten of the 12 Kola volunteers making the trip this week are incoming students who will begin pursing their masters degrees this fall. The student group arranges its trips with ReMember, a Pine Ridgebased nonprofit organization that works with the Oglala Sioux Tribe to organize volunteers from churches, schools and corporations for service projects. Re-Member Director Ted Skantze said the MBA students are great kids with caring hearts, and he likes that as somebody graduates from the school, leadership positions are handed down to the next person. They have sustainability, Skantze said. Its not like theyre here today and gone tomorrow. They have genuine interest. The business schools association with Pine Ridge began in 2010 when thendean Stig Lanesskog took four students on a trip out to the reservation. Lanesskog, now an associate provost, wanted the MBA program to stress corporate and social responsibility and he was looking for ways to give students hands-on experience that could help guide future decision-making. When youre in a situation to be able to make a decision about locating your business, are you only thinking about the financial aspects? Lanesskog wondered. Can you be thinking about the other impact beyond financials? So students Adam Ratner and Nick Reynolds created the Kola Foundation, with plans to turn over leadership to new students each year. Participation by MBA students is voluntary, with no course or internship credits offered. The Kola Foundation partnered with LDS Charities in April 2011 to deliver $80,000 worth of winter clothes, hygiene kits, school kits and quilts, and a group of new students travels out to Pine Ridge each summer.

stepdad. She was playing a video game; the strobe effect of the game set off another seizure. Robert said it took probably a couple of years to get the epilepsy diagnosis. They asked for a referral to Childrens Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham, which has a team of epileptologists, neurosurgeons, technicians and nurses dedicated to the field. Stacy and Robert were told that when Courtneys brain was forming, it didnt develop as it was supposed to. There are several conditions and events that can lead to epilepsy the tendency to have recurrent seizures including brain infections and injuries. But in nearly two-thirds of the cases, there is no specific underlying cause, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Physicians typically use a battery of tests, including an EEG (electroencephalogram), CT scan and MRI, to confirm the epilepsy diagnosis. Anti-epileptic drugs become a mainstay of treatment, though close monitoring is required to assess effectiveness and possible side effects. Such drugs are successful for about twothirds of people with epilepsy, the CDC says. But for some patients, surgery becomes necessary. When doctors can determine that a patients seizures consistently arise from a single area of the brain, known as the seizure focus, surgery to remove that focus can help stop future seizures, or make them easier to control with medication. Courtney had her first surgery in fifth grade. It went perfectly, Robert said. There were no complications. We got back home, and within a couple of weeks she was back to living her normal life, he said. Robert and Stacy were protective of her and limited her activities, but Courtney recovered, and pushed herself to get caught back up to speed at Flowers Elementary School. Everything was going well. Then, in eighth grade, during some horseplay in one of her classes, Courtney was hit in the back of the head with a bottle, which caused a concussion. The seizures started coming back on a regular basis after that, Robert said. But no one was certain where the seizures were coming from. Robert said they thought that a small area that wasnt removed during the first surgery had perhaps started to form back. But we didnt actually know that the seizures were coming from the back spot until a few years down the road, Robert said. The team at Childrens continued to test Courtney for a couple of years, but to test her accurately, she has to be off her medications and have seizures while shes being watched in the hospital. It took time, and several tries, for that to happen. Either Robert or Stacy would stay with Courtney for these tests at Childrens. While both tried to make Courtney comfortable, Stacy, with a mothers instinct, tended to be more of a protector. But Robert sees it differently Stacy was protecting herself as much as she was Courtney, because watching her suffer the seizures was agonizing. Stacy doesnt disagree. Im more comfortable when shes having them, Robert said. You cant stop a seizure, you cant make it go away. You just have to ride it out until its done with. After all the testing was finished, the results pointed to the seizure focus in the area where she had the concussion in eighth grade. The whole time, we were thinking it came from the first incision, Robert said. Everyone agreed that a second surgery was necessary to control the seizures. So on April 30 of this year, she went back to Childrens for brain surgery. Her epileptologist, Dr. Pongkiat Kankirawatana, and her neurosurgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Blount, were godsends, Robert and Stacy said. Before even asking us, (Blount) would go to (Courtney), Robert said. What does she want to be back doing? She wanted to be able to drive, she wanted to go back to school, she wants a normal life again. Courtney came home on May 16. She was in pain and wanted to stay in bed, but she needed to be up and moving around. Still, her recovery has to be on her bodys terms. Even her doctor said, we have to take every corner when she takes that corner. Its when her body allows her to take it, Stacy said. Her vision has been a problem since the surgery, but is beginning to stabilize, Courtney said. There is no point in sending her to an eye specialist now, Robert said, because until her brain is completely healed from the surgery, her eyesight will likely fluctuate. Courtney said her only problem now is reading up close. She covers one eye to read; in fact, thats how she took her state graduation exam. We were at this table for a while, Stacy laughs, as theyre gathered around the kitchen table. But Courtney pushed right on through it. She will finish her senior year still homeschooled through Lee, and will continue to recover. She still takes medications, and likely will have to the rest of her life. Now, besides growing her hair back, the primary goal is for her to be seizure-free for at least six months. Then, she can apply for a permit to learn how to drive. In the meantime, Stacy will continue to stay home to care for her while Robert works. But the family said they dont want pity. Thats something that Ive always told Courtney. We dont need no one to feel sorry for us, Stacy said. Thats not what God gave you this for. This is our challenge in life, Robert said.

Chairman Board of County Commissioners Citrus County, Florida 000CBE0 0815 WCRN children on average, but some sites have as many as 90 pupils, Jones said. Doors are open throughout the school year, and on early dismissal days as well as teacher work days. Summer day care programs are also offered through WTI. The day care opens at each of the participating schools at 6:30 a.m. weekdays and students are released to class shortly before 9 a.m. In the afternoon, the students return about 3:30 p.m. and the daycare closes at 6 p.m. Parents can enroll their children in the morning or afternoon blocks or both. The cost for enrolling a child for the morning or afternoon program is $42 for two weeks of service. Parents needing both the morning and afternoon services pay $84 for two weeks. The day care workers come from all walks of life, Jones said. She said many have experience working with children in the classroom, but others have years of experience in other professions. The teachers are trained and certified to work with children. All of our teachers are required by our program to complete a 40-hour Department of Children and Families program that certifies you by the state to be allowed to work with children, she said. They also learn CPR and first aid. The supervised day care provides fun and games for the children both inside and outside, but also assists students with homework and encourages them to complete Accelerated Reading books, said Jones. Bonnie Turner, an onsite helper at the day care, is a 17-year veteran of the Extended Day Care program. As many of her Pleasant Grove Elementary School pupils sat in small groups Monday playing with puzzles, Barbie dolls and other forms of entertainment, she played the card game Uno with another group of children. I do this for the love of a child, she said. Its the dedication I have to the program and the leadership we have among us girls. We all get along so well. Turner said she and the other workers in the program become part of their students lives. After they go to middle school they remember Ms. Bonnie, Ms. Janet, Ms. Michelle, all us girls, she said. Its a small amount of time, but the love and the care we share is phenomenal. She said through nearly two decades of working with hundreds of children, one memory of a former student stands out. I was at Lecanto Primary for 15 years and one of my former students brought her baby to me to see, she said. She said, Ms. Bonnie, I cant wait for you to raise my child, my son, the way you loved me through the years.

EPILEPSY Continued from Page C1 These people saw it for themselves, so Day 1 they were invested, Ratner said. For our first year, we had to spend the first month and a half educating people about Pine Ridge so they would care. Ratner said he hopes as Kola Foundation graduates spread out into the business world, theyll continue to support the group and have their employers contribute. Wohaldo said Kola is trying to use its business knowledge and resources to spur economic development on the reservation. The group is helping to sponsor the LNI Business Plan Competition, which is each December in Rapid City as part of the annual Lakota Nations Invitational basketball tournament. And its looking at ways to provide help in developing and improving small businesses on the reservation through consulting. INDIAN Continued from Page C1
