C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWell ahead of new Wal-Marts opening in the county are the dollar stores stretching across the landscape. These are stores with the word dollar in their brand name, whether their merchandise sells for a dollar or less or a dollar or more. Residents have noticed these stores springing up generously, particularly in unexpected rural areas. Eight Dollar General stores already are open for business in Citrus County, and six more are in the works. Earlier this month, a company building these stores asked the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) for a change in INSIDE AUGUST 27, 2012 Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best Community VOLUME 118 ISSUE 20 50 CITRUS COUNTY www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial....................A8 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL: Your choice?Do you watch the presidential national conventions on TV?

Rain chance 70%. PAGE A4 TODAY& next morning MONDAY Good, bad about 11 state changes Amendments to be on ballot N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterHeres what you need to know about the 11 proposed Florida constitutional amendments on the 2012 ballot: If you are for them, vote yes if against, vote no. Also, the amendments are listed as 1 through 12, but Amendment 7 has been removed from the ballot. Five of the 11 amendments deal with taxes. According to Judy Johnson, a Marion County attorney who is well-versed in constitutional law and a member of the Marion County League of Women Voters (Citrus County does not have a chapter), Florida has one of the easiest state constitutions to amend, and there are five ways to do it by the legislature proposing a change; citizen-initiative petitions; con st itu tional convention, revision commission or budget and tax reform commission proposal. In order to pass an amendment to the constitution, after the pregnant pig amendment (in 2002), the people of Florida said several years ago that we dont want a simple majority to pass an amendment anymore. Now it must pass by 60 percent, Johnson said. Thats the easy part of understanding Florida constitutional amendments. Understanding what they say and mean is a different matter altogether. Thanks to an explanation from the Johnson and the League of Women Voters, here are the basics of each amendment, plus what the for sides say about them and what the against sides say. Amendment 1 Health Care Services: This allows Florida to opt out of the federal affordable health care act, prohibits laws or rules compelling any person or employer to provide health care coverage or participate in any health care system. It also authorizes health care providers to accept direct payment for health care services and individuals or employers to pay directly for health care services without incurring penalties or fines. For side says: Individuals ought to have the right and freedom to choose their own health care and ought not to be forced by the federal government into a particular health care program. Against side says: The U.S. Supreme Court already ruled with regards to the Affordable Health Care Act and this amendment was actually on the 2010 Florida ballot in 2010 (and removed because of inadequate language) before the U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Therefore, it has no leg to stand on if passed, so why bother? Besides, the Florida Constitution is a governing document and this is not a governing issue. Amendment 2 Veterans Disabled Due to Combat Injury Homestead Property Tax Discount: This amendment expands the current homestead See CHANGES / Page A7 See DOLLARS / Page A4 Storm passes Associated Press A person braves the rain Sunday at Clarence Higgs Beach in Key West as Tropical Storm Isaac hits the area. Isaac gained fresh muscle Sunday as it bore down on the Florida Keys, with forecasters warning it could grow into a dangerous Category 2 hurricane as it nears the northern Gulf Coast. Storm likely to give glancing blow to Citrus C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterTropical Storm Isaacs trajectory wended west Sunday, giving Citrus County a better outlook for the beginning of the week. At 5:15 p.m. Sunday, the county was taken out of the hurricane watch area. The further to the southwest that it tracks, the better for Citrus, said Citrus County Sheriffs Office Capt. Joe Eckstein, who heads the emergency operations center (EOC). Around midday Sunday, the prospects for avoiding heavy flooding and rainfall and high wind speeds were better than previously anticipated. The only protective action we are taking is to open up the sandbag sites because of the amount of flooding that we may have, but we think that its going to be minor, Eckstein said. We are not closing schools or closing government. It will be business as usual. As residents who live west of U.S. 19 could expect minor flooding, sandbag sites were opened from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the county park at the corner of Grover Cleveland Boulevard and Grandmarch Avenue in Homosassa and on State Road 44 East in Crystal River across from Dans Clam Stand. These sites were set to reopen at 7 a.m. Monday and close at noon. Another sandbag site at the Crystal River Fire Station at 650 N.W. Third Ave. would be open 24 hours, according to the EOC. Eckstein said coastal residents could expect an AGL above ground level of three feet. Thats the total amount of water that theyre predicting at high Isaac moves west in Gulf Associated PressKEY WEST Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there. It was on course to strike land on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a powerful storm that crippled New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and became a symbol of government ineptitude. Forecasters expected Isaac to pass the Keys late Sunday before turning northwest and striking as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday. The National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane warning for a large swath of the northern Gulf Coast from east of Morgan City, La. which includes the New Orleans area to Destin, Fla. A Category 2 hurricane has sustained winds of between 96 and 110 mph. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called a state of emergency and suggested that people begin leaving low-lying parts of the state. He also said he may skip a speaking engagement later this week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa unless the threat to his state subsides. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has also canceled his trip to the convention because of Isaac. Elected leaders vigilance toward tropical storms has heightened in the seven years since Katrina struck. Criticism was leveled at officials reaching all the way to the White House over what was seen as the federal governments slow and bungled response to the storm that killed 1,800. An emergency declaration was also issued in Mississippi by Gov. Phil Bryant amid concerns of storm surge threatening low-lying areas. Oil companies began evacuating workers from offshore oil rigs and cutting production in advance of Isaac.

Around THE STATE Tampa Paul: My backers will become the GOP tentCongressman Ron Paul lashed out at Republican efforts to marginalize his supporters at the upcoming party convention, telling a counter rally to stand firm because, in his words, we will become the tent eventually. The plucky GOP presidential candidate hasnt backed presumptive nominee Mitt Romney yet. He appeared Sunday evening at a rally on the edge of Tampa. Republicans officials have reduced the ranks of Paul delegates. The Texas congressman lectured his party about being too willing to intervene abroad, too timid in combating a monetary policy he sees as misguided, and too lax about preserving civil liberties. Paul told The New York Times he was denied a chance to speak because he refused to let the Romney campaign vet his remarks and give an unconditional endorsement. Jindal may skip RNC due to Isaac Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said hes considering skipping his speaking engagement at Republican National Convention because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Jindal said at a news conference Sunday afternoon he wouldnt leave his state while its threatened by the storm. Around the time he spoke, a hurricane warning was issued for parts of the state east of Morgan City, which includes the New Orleans area. He also called a state of emergency in Louisiana and suggested people leave lowlying parts of coastal parishes. Isaac is expected to be a strong Category 2 hurricane when it goes ashore along the Gulf Coast late Tuesday or Wednesday. Wednesday is the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Man with machete arrested at protest At least one arrest has been made during protests near the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Authorities said that on Sunday at about 2:15 p.m., officers spotted a man they said had a machete strapped to his leg. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said deputies ordered 31-year-old Jason Wilson to stop, but he kept walking. When deputies caught up to him, police said, he told them he did not have to stop and was allowed to carry whatever he wanted. Weapons are prohibited in areas police have designated as event zones. Police said Wilson, of Tallahassee, resisted arrest but was subdued and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office. He faces charges of carrying a prohibited item in the event zone and resisting arrest. From wire reports Page A3 MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterHaving agreed to pay an inmates $320,000 medical bill two weeks ago, commissioners will be asked Tuesday to change the rules to make inmates responsible for some medical expenses. However, the rule change will not prevent such a big expense in the future because it will apply only to medical care that is self-initiated or non-emergent in nature. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has carried the medical expenses of inmates, including those of a Pine Ridge man shot in February by a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy in the line of duty. By Florida statute, the county is financially responsible for an inmates medical care. But when the BOCC meets Tuesday, County Administrator Brad Thorpe will present to commissioners a revised administrative regulation to make the inmate responsible for reimbursement of his or her medical care if the inmate asks for non-emergency treatment. The only exception would be for an inmate who was injured by another inmate. Inmates who are proclaimed indigent will be provided care, but will still be responsible for payment of their medical care through their cash account at the county detention facility. A lien can be placed on this account for up to three years for an inmate who leaves the detention facility while owing for medical care. If the inmate would return to the detention facility within three years, the previous reimbursement requirement would apply. Refusal to provide information to establish indigent status for payment of charges may result in the removal of all gain time for which the inmate is entitled. At 1:25 p.m., the BOCC will present proclamations and conduct several public hearings. The board will be asked to approve and issue a proclamation declaring Sept. 17 through 21 Constitution Week in Citrus County, marking the 225th anniversary of the framing of U.S. Constitution by the Constitutional Convention. In public hearings at 1:30 p.m., the board will be asked to adopt and set fees and assessment rates for solid waste management for the new financial year. No rate increases to the fee schedule are proposed. At 1:45 p.m., the board will be asked to adopt the solid waste residential assessment roll and authorize the chairman to execute a resolution ratifying and confirming the residential solid waste assessment roll for the upcoming financial year. At 5:01 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing regarding a request by the owner of 27.5 acres of land at 2630 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, Lecanto, to change its zoning from residential to commercial. On the consent agenda, the board will be asked to approve and authorizethe Memorandum of Understanding Storm Debris Management Agreement between Citrus County and the city of Inverness. This states both the county and city work together to improve the delivery of services and share common responsibilities in management of storm debris following events such as tropical storms, tornados and other localized disaster events. The board also will need to approve a letter to the Southwest Florida Water Management District stating that fees generated in association with the barge canal boat ramp will be used solely for operation and maintenance of the structure or any nearby public facilities.

DAVE SIGLER /Chronicle Lady, an 11-year-old Lab-retriever mix, showed her loyalty when she jumped through a window to help Scott Powell, left, who had been attacked by a neighbor. Susan Heron, center, and Tyler Powell, right, witnessed the attacker stomp on Lady while attacking Scott. B USTER T HOMPSON Chronicle Intern HOMOSASSA A dog truly is mans best friend. That was the case on Aug. 7, during 16-year-old Scott Powells confrontation with a neighbor, which ended with the injury of Powells dog, Lady, as she tried to protect her owner. He got into the yard and suckerpunched me, and from there we started fighting and the dog jumped through the window and started biting at his ankles, Powell said. He stomped onto her leg and it broke and from there my little brother helped her into the house. I felt like she was doing what she felt was right. Powell came away with some bleeding and bruises. Powells mother, Susan Heron, also witnessed the attacks. The guy came up to the house and was having a conversation with my son. As I was walking toward the door to see who it was, he punched my son, Heron said. Our dog went thorough the screen in the livingroom window and went after the guy. Then I saw him kick her. The damages from Ladys attacker resulted in the dislocation of her leg, requiring her to receive orthopedic surgery and medications. The 11-year-old lab-retriever mix needs surgery and medication that will cost over $1,500, which the owners cannot afford. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office Animal Control Division partnered with The Humanitarians of Florida to provide basic veterinary care for the animal, but must raise money for Ladys surgery. We tried to put the leg in place, but it did not hold, Humanitarians President Maggie Hypes said. Officer Lora Peckham, supervisor of CCSOs Animal Control Division, praised Lady for her efforts. She did what she had to do. She saw that her master was in trouble and she tried to save him, and thats commendable, Peckham said. I think she would do it again. Heron wasnt surprised to see Ladys instinct to protect her master. Shes protective like that. Even when the kids growing up and the boys were wrestling, she doesnt like the fighting, she said. The offender managed to escape, and CCSO authorities are treating this as an open case.

Schedules were rearranged to fill an open Monday evening. Sandbags were in place outside the hotel housing the 800-strong California delegation. The threat of Tropical Storm Isaac left delegates to the Republican National Convention recalibrating Sunday but insistent the show will go on with just a few modifications. The GOP postponed most of Mondays lineup. A revised convention schedule shows a brief Monday session that Romneys chief convention planner said would last no more than five minutes. One that went off as planned was Sunday nights kickoff party. Delegates flowed into Tropicana Field, taking advantage of the welcome event organized by the convention host committee. The home of the Tampa Bay Rays was transformed from baseball field into a party zone featuring three separate stages that showcased acts such as country music star Rodney Atkins, belly dancers and cheerleaders. Delegates got to drink as well as take in Cuban food and local seafood. As forecast changes, convention organizers sigh, adapt

rules to make it easier to build in rural areas. Aside from expressing the opinion the county is sprouting too many big-box WalMarts, some residents have questioned the influx of these small-box stores, as Dollar General describes itself on its website. Goodlettsville, Tenn.based Dollar General Corp. is the nations largest smallbox discount retailer. We make shopping for everyday needs simpler and hasslefree by offering a carefully edited assortment of the most popular brands at low everyday prices in small, convenient locations. A shorter shopping trip for some essentials is the purpose these stores aim to serve. But at times, this commercial mission has not been appreciated. Last May, at a meeting of the Citrus County Council, a resident posed the question to County Commissioner Joe Meek: You put in four WalMarts and 20,000 dollar stores. Thats going to raise our paychecks so that the expensive stores will want to come in here? How the heck does that happen? Contacted last week, Meek, who is president of the Citrus County Economic Development Council (EDC), reiterated the countys position. Dollar General, Family Dollar and these types of stores are going through an aggressive expansion plan throughout the country, Meek said. Their business model is to open stores in areas that are seen as underserved. We appreciate their investment in Citrus County. Meek sees the presence of these stores as part of the overall recovery of the economy. At the EDC, we are focused on attracting targeted industries light manufacturing, agriculture, recycling, technological development, medical and biomedical for higher-wage jobs, Meek explained. While the Dollar General-type stores are not among our targeted industries, they fill a need in the county offering the discounted goods that is a sign of our economy now. We hope the success of these stores will attract other retail outlets and our targeted industries to the county. So far, the small-boxes have been able to build stores following the countys rules. Dollar General currently is well into constructing a store on U.S. 19 in Homosassa, as the first project for Teramore Development. Teramores second project is in the works for a site on State Road 200 in Hernando. The third store, the subject of the Aug. 16 meeting of the PDC, is planned at the intersection of North Citrus Avenue and Dunklin Street in Citronelle, but only with a rule change. After that, Clark Stillwell, attorney for Teramore, told the PDC, the company would build three more stores. To be built, the Citronelle site would need to be within a designated neighborhood commercial node, the PDC heard. However, such a node could be established only for properties along U.S. 19, according to the countys comprehensive plan. Joe Hochadel, with the countys Department of Planning and Development, made the case that because the Citronelle site was across the street from a longestablished convenience store and gas station and would serve more than 6,000 residents whose closest shopping was six miles away, the area should become a designated neighborhood commercial node. With a separate amendment to clarify the establishment of nodes along other roadways than U.S. 19, the Citronelle site would become a neighborhood commercial node as identified in the future land use element of the comprehensive plan. What staff would like to do is amend this policy to reflect the current land uses, neighborhood needs, economic conditions and basically the planning principles in general so that we can establish commercial nodes along other places than U.S. 19 where they have a need for something like this, Hochadel said. Making this change to the rules raised points from people both for and against the idea. On the one hand, some Citronelle residents wanted a nearby store and county building contractors wanted the work. On the other hand, some residents might choose a rural residential location because it was removed from retail districts. The amendment would mean a homes remoteness from commercialization could not be ensured for the future. By a 5-2 vote, the PDC passed the request. The final decision soon will be put before the BOCC.

course to pass west of Tampa, but it had already disrupted the Republicans schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds that extended more than 200 miles from its center. Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with more than 550 flights canceled at Miami International Airport and about 150 from Fort Lauderdales airport. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 16,000 customers, and flooding occurred in lowlying areas. Gov. Rick Scott said at a news conference Sunday evening that only minor damage was reported from Isaac. Wind gusts of 60 mph were reported as far north as Pompano Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale. But while officials urged residents in southeast Florida to stay home, that recommendation was ignored by surfers and joggers on Miami Beach and shoppers at area malls. In Key West, Emalyn Mercer rode her bike while decked out with a snorkel and mask, inflatable arm bands and a paddle, just for a laugh. She rode with Kelly Friend, who wore a wet suit, dive cap and lobster gloves. Were just going for a drink, Mercer said. With the ones that are brave enough like us, Friend added. Along famed Duval Street, many stores, bars and restaurants closed, the cigar rollers and palm readers packed up, and just a handful of drinking holes remained open. But people posed for pictures at the Southernmost Point, while at a marina Dave Harris and Robyn Roth took her dachshund for a walk and checked out boats rocking along the waterfront. Just a summer day in Key West, Harris said. That kind of ho-hum attitude extended farther up the coast. Edwin Reeder swung by a gas station in Miami Shores not for fuel, but drinks and snacks. This isnt a storm, he said. Its a rain storm. With a laugh, Reeder said he has not stocked up aside from buying dog and cat food. The forecast wasnt funny, however. Isaac was expected to draw significant strength from the warm, open waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but there remained much uncertainty about its path. The Gulf Coast hasnt been hit by a hurricane since 2008, when Dolly, Ike and Gustav all struck the region. Florida, meanwhile, has been hurricane-free since it was struck four times each in 2004 and 2005. Hurricane center forecasters are uncertain of the storms path because two of their best computer models now track the storm on opposite sides of a broad cone. One model has Isaac going well west and the other well east. For the moment, the predicted track goes up the middle. Florida Panhandle residents stocked up on water and gasoline, and at least one Pensacola store ran out of flashlight models and C and D batteries. Scott Reynolds, who lives near the water in Gulf Breeze, filled his car trunk with several cases of water, dozens of power bars and ramen noodles. Cigarettes Im stocking up on those too, he said. Forecasters stressed that the storms exact location remained extremely uncertain a fact not lost on Tony Varnado as he cut sheets of plywood to board up his familys beach home on Pensacola Beach. With the storms projected path creeping farther to the west, the Mandeville, La., resident joked he might be boarding up the wrong house. Im going to head back that way as soon as we are done here to make sure we are prepared if hits there, he said. Before reaching Florida, Isaac was blamed for seven deaths in Haiti and two more in the Dominican Republic, and downed trees and power lines in Cuba. It bore down on the Keys two days after the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, which caused more than $25 billion in damage just north of the island chain. In Tampa, convention officials said they would convene briefly on Monday, then recess until Tuesday afternoon, when the storm was expected to have passed. Scott canceled his plans to attend convention events on Sunday and Monday. At Miami International Airport, more than 550 flights Sunday were canceled.

exemption available to disabled veterans to those who were not Florida residents at the time they entered military service. For: Veterans are veterans whether they entered the military in New York, Montana, Ohio or Florida, and if they were injured in combat, then we should reward them with a tax break. Its the least we can do. Against: Theres already an added homestead exemption for Florida combatinjured veterans we dont need any more exemptions. In Florida, cities and counties depend on property taxes for services and they are already stressed and stretched. Florida cant afford this. Amendment 3 State Government Revenue Limitation: This amendment has two parts. Due to population and inflationary changes, it replaces the existing revenue limitation adopted about 10 years ago. That means excess revenue would be placed in the states rainy day fund, and once the fund reaches 10 percent of the prior years total budget, the state Legislature would be required to vote to either provide tax relief or reduce property taxes. The second part says the Legislature may increase the revenue limitation by a bill approved by a twothirds majority. For: Government is already overblown and overgrown. This Smart Cap amendment ensures that the state budget doesnt grow beyond Floridas families abilities to pay for it. Against: The proposed revenue cap could prevent government services from keeping up with demand. Currently, Florida doesnt even have enough revenue to fund what we need, such as good roads, etc. Besides, even if this passes, the Legislature could increase the revenue cap, so it doesnt matter what the voters say. Amendment 4 Property Tax Limitation; Property Value Decline; Reduction for Non-Homestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal: This reduces the annual growth in assessment limitation on business and rental properties and second homes from 10 percent to 5 percent and prohibits increase in the assessed value of homestead property when the market value of the property decreases. This also gives first-time homesteaders, which includes non-owners for three years, an additional tax exemption equal to 50 percent of the median just value on the property. This exemption, which applies only to non-school property taxes, is reduced 20 percent each year, diminishing to zero in five years or less. If approved, this exemption applies to property purchased on or before Jan. 1, 2012. For: This provision will stimulate Floridas economy and its real estate market, encourage people who may have had previous homes foreclosed on to buy homes, will create new jobs construction and related jobs such as house painting, carpeting, interior decorating, lighting, etc. and bring new residents to Florida, which will help reduce the glut of houses on the market. Against: This would bring new residents to Florida who wouldnt be paying their fair share of taxes yet would be using the same services as others who are paying full price. Cities and counties are already stressed and stretched, and Florida cant afford this. Amendment 5 State Courts: This amendment has several parts. It adds a requirement for a state Supreme Court justice appointed by the governor to also be confirmed by the Senate. It also authorizes repeal of a court rule by a simple majority of the Legislature instead of the current two-thirds majority, prohibits re-enactment of any repealed rule and allows the Speaker of the House of Representatives to review all files of the Judicial Qualification Commissions even if it isnt related to impeachment considerations. For: Someone besides the judicial nominating committee and the governor needs to be looking at the qualifications and background of Supreme Court nominees. Also, this amendment makes it easier to repeal a rule and might get the Supreme Court to pay more attention. Against: There are three independent arms of the state government (executive, legislative and judicial), and this amendment usurps power from both the governor and the judicial branch. In the 40 years since weve been doing things this way there hasnt been a problem, so why change it now? Amendment 6 Prohibition of Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights: This prohibits the use of public funds for abortions with the exception of rape, incest or to save the pregnant womans life. This also stipulates that the state constitution cannot be interpreted to include broader rights to abortion than those contained in the U.S. Constitution. For: This codifies whats already federal law, but just in case the federal folks change their minds, this will be in the states constitution. This will reduce the number of abortions in Florida and ensure that the privacy rights of women in regard to abortion are consistent with federal standards. Against: Theres already a federal law and Floridas right to privacy is already one of the strongest of any state constitution. This amendment interferes with a womans right to choose guaranteed by Roe v. Wade. Amendment 8 Religious Freedom: Also known as the Blaine Amendment, this deletes the current provision in the state constitution that prohibits taxpayer funding of religious institutions and would allow the state to use public money to fund religious institutions and schools. For: Religious organizations already fill a gap in providing social services that the general public can use, but are excluded from some state funding sources. If theyre providing services to state residents, they should be entitled to state funds. Against: If passed, this would ensure the creation and expansion of voucher programs for private, religious schools, and financially this is not a good time to have vouchers when the public schools are underfunded. Also, an unintended consequence could be the state interfering with the church rather than the other way around. Amendment 9 Homestead Property Tax Exemption for Surviving Spouse of Military Veteran or First Responder: This grants full homestead property relief to surviving spouses of military veterans who die from service-connected causes while on active duty or first responders killed in the line of duty. The deceased must have been a permanent resident of Florida on Jan. 1 the year they died. This amendment adds first responders to the existing exemption. If enacted, this amendment would authorize the Legislature to totally or partially exempt surviving spouses of military veterans or first responders who died in the line of duty from paying property taxes. For: If they died while trying to protect us, we ought to be able to provide benefits to their families. Its good public policy. Against: This is yet another category of exemptions that take away tax revenue to already strapped cities and counties. Whos going to pick up the slack? Amendment 10 Tangible Personal Property Exemption: This gives businesses an additional exemption on tangible property such as furniture and equipment used for the business, increasing it from the current $25,000 to $50,000. It also authorizes counties and cities to grant additional personal property and tangible tax exemptions. Pro: Lowering taxes will stimulate business growth in Florida. Also, this gives local control to city and county governments. Against: Businesses just got a $25,000 exemption and now they want it doubled? We already have enough business incentives. What we need is more revenue. Amendment 11 Additional Homestead Exemption for Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain LongTerm Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Valuation: This gives counties and cities authority to grant full homestead property exemptions to lowincome seniors (age 65 and older) who have lived in their home for at least 25 years and whose home has a just value of less than $250,000. For: This helps keep lowincome seniors in their homes and allows local control. Against: Florida already has additional homestead exemptions for seniors. Why is another exemption necessary, why now and why just seniors? Were already cashstrapped; who will pick up the slack? Amendment 12 Appointment of Student Body President to Board of Governors of State University System: This creates a new council composed of student body presidents and requires that the chair of that council replace the current Florida Student Association member on the Board of Governors. For: This is just a cleanup process replacing one group with another. Against: The Constitution is a governing document and this is not a governing issue. Therefore, it doesnt belong there.

It would be whatever your high tide number is say 2 feet and if they are saying a surge of a foot, the total amount of water would be three. Residents who dont have sandbags by Monday morning still have time to get them before the high tide comes in at 1 p.m. First, the storm will draw the tide out to below normal levels. Right now, what they are predicting if it stays on the path that its on for Citrus County, starting tonight we could have two to three feet below normal tide, so that means its going to push the water out, Eckstein said. With the high tide at 1 p.m. Monday, coastal residents should expect some flooding. On Sunday, Eckstein led a webinar briefing with emergency management staff using the countys GIS (geographic information systems) map to overlay the three feet of water at different addresses around Kings Bay. It will show the actual amount of water that would be in that area, Eckstein said. Most places that we checked were anywhere from six inches to a foot (of flooding). Although flooding is expected for Monday afternoon, Eckstein said it should not be extreme. People can start sandbagging their areas, especially if you live in the low-lying areas that typically flood, Eckstein said. Rainfall amounts also will be lighter than feared. The total amount of rain has come way down, Eckstein said. They are predicting for our area from Sunday till Tuesday somewhere between 1 to 3 inches. We could get some very strong bands that come through from tonight (Sunday) and into tomorrow, but they are going to brush right on through. Its not going to be an allday downpour. However, no one should let down their guard, because the storm brings other potential dangers. There is a risk of tornadoes because we are on the northeast side of the storm, Eckstein said. Were going to have some pretty good wind gusts, but its not going to be severe. You could, in pockets, have some severe weather. On the east side of the county, rivers could rise later in the week. The Withlacoochee could end up being an issue in about three to seven days, Eckstein said. The storm, however, should have no effect on the river on Monday or Tuesday. Eckstein said the Green Swamp in Polk County would fill up and push water through the Withlacoochee River to Citrus County, with the possibility of flooding. Whatever weather arrives Monday should come as no surprise. It just gets into that whole preparation thing, Eckstein said. Weve been talking about the storm now for five days. People should have already gone out and cut tree limbs and branches and picked up yards and stuff like that so they dont have anything blowing around. We could very easily have tropical stormforce winds, but I dont think its going to be all day. CHRIS VAN ORMER /Chronicle Employees with the countys public works department were shovel-ready Sunday afternoon to supply residents with sandbags to help stop potential flooding from Tropical Storm Isaac. The service at the countys site on State Road 44 East in Crystal River included bags already filled and loaded into vehicles. Assistant Public Works Director Larry Brock said sandbag sites distributed about 2,000 bags by 6 p.m. Sunday. CITRUS Continued from Page A1

Page A8 MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 Declare independence Much more important reasons for energy independence than our provincial but real preoccupation with gasoline prices are geopolitical sanity and economic progress. Looking at the countries listed as Middle Eastern, it appears the vast majority derive more than 50 percent and up to 90 percent of their wealth from the extraction and sale of fossil fuels or hydrocarbons. Our national involvement and the countless lives and treasure lost to try to secure these hydrocarbons is hard to rationalize, especially when we know for a fact that we have or can produce all the energy we need and have enough to export for 300plus years. The only economically viable source of usable energy now and for the foreseeable future is hydrocarbons. Nuclear power is also a very viable source, but only if we overcome our fear of its use and make that source economically viable. France produces nearly 80 percent of its electricity via this method. We carry in our individual gasoline tanks enough potentially destructive power to blow up a city block, yet give it no more of a thought than carrying a teddy bear. The threat alone, if real, of American energy independence would change the economic and geopolitical spectrum of the world. As opposed to the current drive to hobble our own and the world economies, energy independence by the United States would reduce the price of energy for the entire world. It would free vast resources the entire world could dedicate to grow out of the grinding poverty that our current selfishness imposes on many of them. If our leaders were honestly worried about the reduction of tension in the world and the growth of poor nations, they would cease and desist their current drive to restrict American growth and prosperity and, by extension, that of the rest of the world. If your neighbor is hungry and your larder full, you will always fear his intrusion. So insist that your representatives understand that we must drill, frack and mine our way to energy independence and a saner world. Robin Humphrey Crystal River Boat responsibly At the end of July and in early August, my wife and I went scalloping out of Ozello. Like thousands of others, we really enjoy this sport. The scallops make a great meal, but hours in the clear, warm water and the chance to observe a lot of wildlife are the real draws. These grass flats are very important to our area not only for scallops, but as an estuary for fish, food for manatees and a buffer for storms. Thats why I was angry at one of the nearby boats. It was a large, deep-draft cabin, offshore boat with three large outboards. When it left the area, it fouled the water with mud. When the water finally cleared, we discovered a 10-foot wide swath of destruction through the grass, and about 2 feet into the bottom, we gathered a lot of damaged scallops from the area. There are a lot of us out there, so we have a substantial impact even when we are in boats of appropriate draft and use careful anchorage. But a few incidents like this can really do a lot of damage. If you are lucky enough to have a large offshore boat, please use it offshore. Respect the environment and your expensive equipment. Dont drag it through the mud and grass. Buy or rent an appropriate shallow draft boat. You can afford it. It doesnt take an expensive boat to scallop. As a side note: I called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to find out if this activity is illegal. To my surprise, they said it isnt, although it is in the Keys. Our grass flats are very important, and as the reefs, fragile and endangered. Do they deserve some degree of legal protection? Don Clark Floral City L ets take a short trip back in time to when the predecessor to Florida TaxWatch, the Citizens Council for Budget Research, was founded in 1979. On the technology front, the revolutionary Apple II computer was 2 years old, IBM was about to release its first PC and the Windows operating system was still six years from existence. The transportation landscape looked very different as well. The nations best-selling car was the Chevrolet Impala/Caprice sedan, which boasted a fuel economy of 15 to 19 miles per gallon, equal to some of todays biggest SUVs. And a gallon of regular gas cost roughly 86 cents, compared to todays average of $3.41. These are but some of the many ways our world has changed in the past few decades, but they illustrate how much Floridas tax system has failed to follow suit. Florida TaxWatch has been urging lawmakers to increase the collection of lawfully owed tax on products purchased online (or through the mail) from out-ofstate retailers for more than a decade. Some estimates of this uncollected tax are as high as $2 billion per year in lost revenue. Look at the evolution of Black Friday, the annual shopping extravaganza where many local businesses see a significant percentage of their yearly sales. Believe it or not, there was a time when Black Friday wasnt followed by Cyber Monday. But today, online shopping has become such a normalized way of purchasing goods that many of us will often browse the local store down the street, drive home and order the product online. It ends up being cheaper, too, with no shipping and no taxes, in many cases. Florida businesses are hurting as a result, and with more companies coming online every day, there is no end in sight without the Legislature taking action. Heres an interesting fact about the development in communications technology: the first generation iPhone had more computing power than the system NASA used to send Apollo 11 to the moon. I have in front of me at the moment three devices that 20 years ago would have seemed like science-fiction creations. Technological advances in communications, much like e-commerce, have so completely outpaced the financial systems set up around them in Florida that the Communications Services Tax must be reformed. Floridas transportation system is also suffering from technological advances, but in a much different way. There may be fewer people shopping in stores, but there are certainly not fewer cars on the road. Anyone who has driven anywhere here during the school year, rush hour, or on any random Saturday can attest to that. How is it possible that the gas tax can no longer function as the main support for our transportation infrastructure needs, if there are so many more people on the roads? Its simple. Todays cars are two to three times more efficient than they were 20 years ago, we have low-rolling-resistance tires that help improve efficiency on even the worst gas-guzzlers, and the technology continues to advance. The fact is, it is long past time for Florida policymakers to step up and reform a tax system that was effective back when being on the phone meant standing in your kitchen and watching your pets trip over a curly cord stretched across the room. The president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch for the past 30 years, Dominic Calabro has had a close-up view of Floridas ever-changing fiscal and economic policies.

Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .......................................... publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................ editor Mike Arnold .......................................... HR directorCurt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Drive home desirability of nuke to Duke C itrus County leaders, citizens and businesses should not lose hope in convincing Duke Energy that repairing its nuclear power plant near Crystal River is the best thing for the county and for Duke. Duke faces a momentous businesses decision on whether to repair the damaged containment wall or shut down Crystal River No. 3 (CR3) all together. The containment wall was damaged in 2009 when workers cut a hole in it to replace the steam generators. During the work, inspectors discovered a crack had developed where the wall had been cut into. Workers repaired the crack, but discovered a second crack in the containment building when they applied tension to cables that run through the containment buildings walls. Progress Energy, which recently merged with Duke, decided at that time to remove and replace most of the concrete in the containment structure and return the nuclear unit to service. The repairs were estimated to cost a billion or more dollars, with a significant portion being covered by insurance. Duke has since said the repairs appear to be trending higher than expected, which causes concern for Citrus County residents. If Duke decides not to repair CR3, the closure of that plant would significantly cut county tax revenues, and hundreds of well-paying plant jobs would go away. Duke understands if it closes CR3 it would be placing the majority of its eggs in the natural gas basket and would also lose the stabilizing effect cheap nuclear energy generation has on its long-term fuel costs. Natural gas prices are low now, but in the past they have been quite high. Keeping nuclear energy reduces the companys exposure to natural gas market fluctuations. We encourage Duke Energy to remain diverse by keeping nuclear energy as part of its future plans. Likewise, county leaders should continue to move toward diversifying its tax base by drawing in other types of business to the area. However, county leaders, businesses and residents should not give up hope or the effort to convince Duke Energy that repairing CR3 is in the best interest of all.

Associated PressTAMPA The political risk was slight for Mitt Romney in scrapping the first day of his Florida convention in the face of Tropical Storm Isaac: TV networks werent planning to broadcast it live anyway. As the storm veered toward New Orleans, however, the decision about what to do next was fraught with peril. Romney is trying to balance celebrating his presidential nomination with being mindful of the ghost of Hurricane Katrina and the stain George W. Bushs handling of it left on the GOP You dont want to be having hoopla and dancing when you have the nation focused on tragedy and suffering, said Al Hoffman, a Republican from West Palm Beach and former finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. The next few days will test Romneys ability to both present himself to the American people as a plausible alternative to President Barack Obama and to lead a party still smarting from the image hit it took in the aftermath of the 2005 Gulf Coast devastation. Since then, Republicans have been so sensitive to the political danger around hurricanes that they delayed the start of their national convention by a day in 2008 when Hurricane Gustav bore down on the Gulf, a full 1,200 miles away from where delegates were gathering in St. Paul, Minn. Four years later, a storm again has delayed the start of the convention and again is barreling toward New Orleans, the city that Katrina so badly damaged. Memories of Katrina hung heavy over Tampa as Republican delegates traveled here to anoint the partys new standard-bearer. All over Florida a critical battleground state people were preparing for the worst. Homes and shops were boarded up in Key West. About 800 miles northwest in the Florida panhandle, the Wal-Mart in Destin had sold out of bottled water. By Sunday afternoon, Tampa was cloud-covered and windy outside the hall where Romney is to accept the nomination Thursday night. Inside, tense Romney advisers huddled to figure out how to proceed. Its a mess all around and its fraught with risk, said Sally Bradshaw, a Florida Republican and longtime senior aide to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Its not good for anybody particularly the people impacted by the storm. Weather was recognized as potential trouble when Republicans chose to hold their convention in Florida during hurricane season. Beyond safety and image concerns, Isaac presents another wrinkle for Romney: It allows Obama to show leadership and flex the levers of his administration to help people bracing for a storm. As forecasts grew grim, Obama dispatched the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist, and the White House said the president was closely monitoring the storm. The president also told the governor to let him know if there are any unmet needs or additional resources the administration could provide, including in support of efforts to ensure the safety of those visiting the state for the Republican National Convention, the White House said Sunday. The president had no immediate plans to visit. But he might as most presidents do if the damage is severe. And if he does, Romney would have to weigh whether to proceed with his convention or scrap more parts of it and cede the limelight to Obama. Mindful of the danger of appearing to put politics before safety, Vice President Joe Biden, the Obama campaigns surrogate-in-chief, canceled a campaign swing through Florida on Monday and Tuesday. Back in Tampa, Romneys convention planners were busy working to cram four carefully scripted days of speechmaking and celebration into just three. The announcement delaying the start of the convention came late Saturday, with Romney mindful of the good politics of putting safety before, well, politics. The safety of those in Isaacs path is of the utmost importance, Romney said in a tweet late Saturday. Romneys decision drew praise. Governor Romney and his team have handled the situation correctly, former Gov. Bush, a Republican, told The Associated Press. He added: There is no reason to cancel the event. Republican strategists suggested Romney celebrate without going overboard. You can tone down the happy-days-are-here-again a bit, said Rich Galen, a veteran Republican consultant in Washington. Maybe you dont have the biggest balloon drop in history.S TATEC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, A UGUST 27, 2012 A9 000C40B Home Improvement Package worth over $ 275 $ 275 Dryer Vent Cleaning worth $90 Air Conditioning Tune-Up worth $99 Carpet Cleaning up to 3 Rooms! worth $89.95 Call 726-4646 Today! 1 Regina Blvd., Beverly Hills (Across From Fire Station) 746-0330 Beverly Hills DENTAL CENTER Dentures, Partials & Bridges Invisalign (Removable Braces) Children Welcome Veneers, Bonding, & Extractions One Visit Root Canals Gum Surgery Implants One Hour Whitening Open Fridays Raphael C.

Associated PressAMMAN Dozens of bloodied bodies were buried Sunday in mass graves in a Damascus suburb where activists claim more than 300 people have been killed over the past week in a major government offensive to take back control of rebel-held areas in and around the capital. The British-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 32 more dead bodies were found in the streets of Daraya on Sunday and that they had been killed by gunfire and summary executions. Among them were three women and two children, the group said. It put the toll for the past week as at least 320. Another activist group, the Local Coordination Committees, claimed 300 bodies were discovered Saturday in Daraya and 633 people have been killed there since the government launched its assault last week. President Bashar Assad, in comments carried by state media, reiterated his long-standing claim that a foreign plot was behind the uprising against his rule and said he would not allow it to succeed whatever the price might be. It was impossible to independently verify the death tolls because of severe restrictions on media coverage of the conflict. However, activists and residents have reported excessive use of force by the regime in major battles, with indiscriminate shelling from the ground and the air. The Local Coordination Committees said some of those killed by regime forces in Daraya were buried in mass graves on Sunday. Video footage posted by the group showed bloodied bodies wrapped in colorful blankets lying next to each other with branches of date palms strewn over them. Another video posted on the Internet and dated Saturday showed dozens of bodies on the floor of a mosque in Daraya. Most of the bodies were bloodied and wrapped in blankets. The anonymous commentator said there were at least 150 bodies. Almanac forecast: Wintry and mysteryLEWISTON, Maine The weather world is full of highprofile meteorologists like NBCs Al Roker and the Weather Channels Jim Cantore. But the guy making the forecasts for the Farmers Almanac is more like the man behind the curtain. Hes cloaked in mystery. The publisher of the 196year-old almanac, which goes on sale this week, takes great pains to protect the identity of its reclusive weather soothsayer, who operates under the pseudonym Caleb Weatherbee. Calebs real name and hometown are a secret. And so is his age-old formula used for making long-term forecasts. The mystery mans forecast for the coming winter suggests people from the Great Lakes to northern New England should get out their long johns and dust off their snow shovels. Its also supposed to be wet and chilly in the Southeast, and milder for much of the rest of the nation. Even just to speak to the forecaster, the almanac would agree only to an unrecorded phone call with the man from an undisclosed location. The weather formula created by almanac founder David Young in 1818 was based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles. Since then, historical patterns, weather data and a computer have been added to the mix. The Maine-based Farmers Almanac is not to be confused with the New Hampshirebased Old Farmers Almanac. Both issue annual forecasts, with the Old Farmers Almanac scheduled for next month. Hello, pontiff Associated Press Pope Benedict XVI greets the faithful Sunday during the Angelus noon prayer at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo on the outskirts of Rome. Pussy Riot members flee to escape arrestMOSCOW Two members of the punk band Pussy Riot have fled Russia to avoid prosecution for a protest against Vladimir Putin that sent three of their bandmates to prison, the group said Sunday. Five members of the feminist group took part in a provocative performance inside Moscows main cathedral in February to protest the Russian leaders rule and his cozy relationship with the Orthodox Church. The women wore their trademark garishly colored balaclavas, which made it difficult for police to identify them, and only three were arrested. After a controversial trial that highlighted Putins crackdown on dissent since he began a third presidential term in May, the three band members were convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in prison on Aug. 17. Days later, Moscow police said they were searching for the other band members, an apparent warning to the group to stop its anti-Putin protests. Pussy Riot tweeted Sunday the two activists had fled Russia and are recruiting foreign feminists to prepare new protest actions. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS Page A10 MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON Most Americans say go ahead and raise taxes if it will save Social Security benefits for future generations. And raise the retirement age, if you have to. Both options are preferable to cutting monthly benefits, even for people who are years away from applying for them. Those are the findings of a new Associated Press-GfK poll on public attitudes toward the nations largest federal program. Social Security is facing serious long-term financial problems. When given a choice on how to fix them, 53 percent of adults said they would rather raise taxes than cut benefits for future generations, according to the poll. Just 36 percent said they would cut benefits instead. The results were similar when people were asked whether they would rather raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments for future generations 53 percent said they would raise the retirement age, while 35 percent said they would cut monthly payments. Right now, it seems like were taxed so much, but if that would be the only way to go, I guess Id have to be for it to preserve it, said Marge Youngs, a 77-year-old widow from Toledo, Ohio. Its extremely important to me. Its most of my income. Social Security is being hit by a wave of millions of retiring baby boomers, leaving relatively fewer workers to pay into the system. The trustees who oversee the massive retirement and disability program say Social Securitys trust funds will run out of money in 2033. At that point, Social Security will only collect enough tax revenue to pay 75 percent of benefits, unless Congress acts. Lawmakers from both political parties say there is a good chance Congress will address Social Security in the next year or two if the White House takes the lead. Yet so far, Social Security has not played a big role in the presidential election. About 56 million people get Social Security benefits. Monthly payments average $1,236 for retirees. The options for fixing Social Security fall into two broad categories raising taxes or cutting benefits, or some combination of the two. In previous polls, most of the options for addressing Social Security scored poorly among the public, which helps explain why Congress hasnt embraced them. But the AP-GfK poll forced people to make a choice: Raise taxes or cut benefits? Raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments? Democrats, Republicans and independents all favored raising the retirement age over cutting monthly payments. But there was a big divide on raising taxes. Sixty-five percent of Democrats and 53 percent of independents supported higher taxes, compared with just 38 percent of Republicans. The poll involved landline and cellphone interviews with 1,006 adults nationwide. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points. Poll: U.S. willing to pay more to save Social Security Most Americans value Social Security Social Security is far more important an issue for seniors than younger Americans, according to the latest AP-GfK Poll. Regardless of whom you support, who do you trust to do a better job of handling Social Security? Barack Obama: 47% Mitt Romney: 44% Dont know: 5%Neither: 4% How important is Social Security to you personally? (Percentage saying extremely or very important) NOTE: Poll of 1,006 adults conducted Aug. 16-20, 2012; margin of error .9 percentage points; may not equal 100 percent due to rounding SOURCE: GfK Roper Public Affairs & Corporate CommunicationsAP All ages 74% 54% 80% 90% Ages 18-34 Ages 35-64 65 and older Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan The son of the founder of the powerful Haqqani network was been killed in an airstrike in Pakistan, Afghanistans intelligence agency said Sunday, providing the first public confirmation of rumors that have been swirling for days about the key member of a militant group the U.S. considers one of the most dangerous in the region. The Taliban rejected reports of Badruddin Haqqanis death, however, saying he was alive and well in Afghanistan. Haqqanis death would be a serious blow to the organization founded by his father, Jalaluddin Haqqani. The group, which has ties to both the Taliban and alQaida, has been blamed for a series of high-profile attacks and kidnappings in Afghanistan, particularly in and around the capital city of Kabul, and poses perhaps the biggest threat to stability in the country. Shafiqullah Tahiri, the spokesman for Afghanistans National Directorate of Security intelligence agency, said Haqqani was killed last week in an airstrike in Pakistan. He did not provide any further details, and would not say what information the agencys operatives were basing their conclusion on. U.S. officials have declined to comment on the reports. But Tahiris account is similar to one provided Saturday by a senior Taliban leader who said Haqqani was killed in a drone strike. It also hews closely to a version provided by Pakistani officials who said Saturday they were 90 percent sure the militant commander was killed in a missile attack Tuesday in Pakistans North Waziristan tribal region. The Taliban, who are closely allied with the Haqqani network, rejected the reports. Badruddin is considered a vital part of the Haqqani structure and is believed to have played an active role in kidnappings, extortion and high-profile operations in Afghanistan. Tahiri said Haqqanis responsibilities included arranging suicide bombers, maintaining relations with other insurgent groups, recruiting Taliban fighters for the Haqqani group and overseeing operations in southeastern Afghanistan and in Kabul. Afghanistan claims key member of Haqqani network killed Associated Press This citizen journalism image provided by Shaam News Network and taken Sunday purports to show victims killed by shabiha pro-government militiamen being buried in a mass grave in Daraya, Syria. According to activist accounts, government forces retook the Damascus suburb of Daraya three days ago and have since gone on a killing spree. Reports of the death toll range widely from more than 300 to as many as 600. The Associated Press is unable to independently verify the authenticity, content, location or date of this image.

Women are being asked to start withholding sex from their husbands or partners as of Monday, said Isabelle Ameganvi, leader of the womens wing of the group Lets Save Togo. She said the strike will put pressure on Togos men to take action against President Faure Gnassingbe. Ameganvi, a lawyer, told The Associated Press that her group is following the example of Liberias women, who used a sex strike in 2003 to campaign for peace. We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo, Ameganvi said.Former South Carolina Gov. Sanford engagedBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford proposed marriage to his Argentine lover in the same way he has lived since their affair derailed his political career: combining elements of secrecy with unfiltered expressions of love, and a touch of the weird as well. Sanford confirmed Sunday hes engaged to Maria Belen Chapur. He proposed to her on Wednesday in the Bella Italia Grille, a high-end restaurant in the upscale Palermo neighborhood, around the corner from Chapurs luxury apartment, the restaurants manager said Sunday. The manager said Sanford settled on a table for two near the door, and left the engagement ring in a small box with one of the waiters, telling him to give it to Chapur when she arrived. Then he hid out in the bathroom for disabled guests, where cracking open the door provides a direct view of the table, and waited for more than an hour before she arrived, the manager said. The waiter then gave Chapur the box. She opened it and seemed puzzled to see the ring until Sanford walked up, declared his love and asked her to marry him. She quickly said yes and they kissed and cried, but no one else in the restaurant seemed to notice, the manager said. From wire reports

SPORTS BRIEFS Owens released by Seahawks as part of roster reductionRENTON, Wash. Terrell Owens NFL return lasted less than three weeks. Owens was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, part of the leaguemandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. that he had been released and the Seahawks made the move official later in the afternoon. Im no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, Im truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver. Owens wasnt the only veteran to get cut by the Seahawks. Offensive linemen Deuce Lutui and Alex Barron both had their veteran contracts terminated, while Seattle waived injured defensive back Roy Lewis (knee), tight end Cameron Morrah (toe), defensive tackle Pep Levingston (knee) and linebacker Jamison Konz (shoulder). Power wins third straight pole in Sonoma SONOMA, Calif. When Will Power won his third straight pole Saturday for the IndyCar race in Sonoma, he didnt just put himself in prime position to go for his third straight victory in wine country. That single standings point awarded to the pole winner also increased his overall IndyCar lead by nearly 17 percent. Thats how close the standings are bunched heading into the final three races of an entertaining IndyCar season. Power boosted his lead over Ryan Hunter-Reay to six points with his fourth pole of the year, and only 29 points separate the top four drivers. The race Sunday could be just as unpredictable as the standings. With three track modifications to encourage passing in a longer race, Power isnt confident hell dominate in his quest for a third straight victory at the southern end of Northern Californias wine country.Indy adds CB Davis in trade with Dolphins INDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis bruised defense finally got some help Sunday. Four days after team owner Jim Irsay ignited speculation about a possible trade with a series of Twitter posts, the Colts acquired former firstround draft pick Vontae Davis to solidify their secondary. Miami will get Indys second-round pick and a conditional, undisclosed late-round pick in the 2013 draft a steep price for a veteran cornerback who recently lost his starting job, but one the Colts found reasonable. The addition of Davis came hours after the Colts took another big defensive hit when an MRI confirmed defensive tackle Brandon McKinney injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Nick Watney salvaged a dismal season Sunday at The Barclays with a victory that could not have come at a better time. Watney turned a twoshot deficit against Sergio Garcia into a three-shot lead in a decisive four-hole stretch around the turn at Bethpage Black, and no one got closer than two shots the rest of the way. Watney made a 10-foot birdie putt on the last hole for a 2-under 69 to capture the opening playoff event for the FedEx Cup. He wound up winning by three shots over Brandt Snedeker, who birdied the last hole for a 70. Garcia made bogey on the 18th for a 75. The win means Watney goes to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings and is assured a shot at the $10 million prize at the Tour Championship next month. Perhaps more importantly, it could be a big step toward an event that doesnt pay anything at all the Ryder Cup. Winning against one of the strongest fields of the year at least puts him in the conversation to be one of four captains picks for the Sept. 28-30 matches at Medinah. Davis Love III will announce his choices after next weeks playoff event outside Boston. Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk are likely to be two of those picks, and the other two are suddenly wide open. Snedeker, already under consideration, battled to the end on a warm day on Long Island. He made a 15foot par putt on the 17th hole and closed with a birdie to be alone in second place. Complicating matters for Love is that Dustin Johnson shot 68 and tied for third, along with Garcia. Japan takes LLWS title, beats Tenn. 12-2 Associated PressSOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.

See WATNEY / Page B4 On the money See TITLE / Page B4 Associated PressDENVER Peyton Manning was magnificent in his final regular-season tuneup Sunday, throwing his first two touchdown passes for the Denver Broncos in a 29-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Manning completed 10 of 12 passes for 122 yards, including TD tosses of 10 and 5 yards to Eric Decker, and was nearly perfect. The two misses were a dropped pass by Joel Dreessen and an errant pass to Brandon Stokley, who was held on the play but didnt draw the flag. After managing one TD to go with four turnovers in his first seven possessions this preseason, Manning drove the Broncos (1-2) to scores on all three of his possessions, then put on his visor with 46 seconds left in the first quarter after staking Denver to a 17-0 lead. Alex Smith threw a 49-yard TD pass and David Akers kicked five field goals for the Niners (2-1), who outscored the Broncos backups 19-0 in the second half but lost wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to an ankle injury early in the second half. For the second straight week, the Broncos backups were awful. In blowing a 24-10 halftime lead, theyve been outscored 40-0 after halftime in the last two games. Denvers first drive stalled when the replacement officials failed to whistle cornerback Carlos Rogers for a blatant hold on a third-down pass to Stokley, and the Broncos settled for Matt Praters 53-yard field goal. Manning was money after that. He completed all six of his passes for 83 yards on a long drive that ended with his first touchdown throw in orange and blue, a 10-yard strike to Decker, who beat Rogers over the middle. The highlight of drive was a 38-yard pass to running back Lance Ball, who left the game with a rib injury. Manning was blasted by linebacker Parys Haralson in the chest right as he released his longest pass of the preseason. Manning bounced right up, raced downfield, lined up in the no-huddle and hit running back Willis McGahee for 14 yards to the San Francisco 12. It was the second time Manning, who missed all of last season with a neck injury that required four operations, had been hit hard in the preseason, and both times he responded with a big pass for the first down. Notes: Mannings passer rating of 148.6 was nearly 100 points higher than what it was (48.8) in the first two preseason games. ...

Curtis Granderson hit his 200th career homer and Soriano shook off getting hit on the side of his right hand by a line drive as the Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2. It feels fine right now, Soriano said after getting struck in the ninth inning by a shot by Jason Kipnis that was headed right at his head. It hit my glove or my hand, Im not sure which one first. Soriano recovered to get the ball and make the out, then the righthander, Asdrubal Cabrera, on a soft liner for his 33rd save in 35 chances since replacing the injured Mariano Rivera as closer. The Yankees have battled injuries all year and after being swept in three games in Chicago, felt the Tampa Bay Rays closing in on their AL East lead. Were really fortunate, manager Joe Girardi said.

Thats the way to do it, win series. AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 5, Angels 2DETROIT Prince Fielder and Delmon Young homered on consecutive pitches in the sixth inning to support Max Scherzer and help the Detroit Tigers beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 on Sunday. Scherzer (14-6) gave up one run and struck out nine over seven innings. Joaquin Benoit struck out two more in a perfect eighth, and Jose Valverde struck out another batter while closing it out. Angels starter Ervin Santana (7-11) allowed four runs and five hits over seven innings. Red Sox 8, Royals 6 BOSTON James Loney hit a tying single in his Boston debut and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in the go-ahead run as the revamped Red Sox bounced back from a nine-player trade and a 12-inning loss to beat the Kansas City Royals 8-6 Sunday. A day after he was the only major-leaguer coming to Boston in a deal that sent Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and more than $250 million in salary to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Loney went 1 for 5. Pedro Ciriaco had three hits, scored twice and drove in two runs for the Red Sox, who won for just the fourth time in 12 games.

Immediately following a 6-minute rain delay in the seventh inning, Flowers launched a two-run shot off Kevin Millwood to lead first-place Chicago to its second consecutive series sweep. Rain continued to pour until the tarp was put on to stay two batters later, and the game was called after a wait of nearly 2 hours. The start was delayed for 1 hour, 51 minutes due to showers that persisted throughout the game before it was finally stopped. NATIONAL LEAGUE Padres 5, Diamondbacks 4PHOENIX Edinson Volquez pitched seven effective innings and the San Diego Padres extended their winning streak to a season-high seven games with a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. The Padres roughed up Trevor Cahill (9-11) and had at least 10 hits (11) for the sixth time in eight games to complete their second sweep in the desert this season. Volquez (9-9) recovered after a shaky first inning and San Diegos bullpen escaped some sketchy moments of its own to win its sixth straight over Arizona.

Volstad (1-9), acquired from Miami for Carlos Zambrano, earned his first win since he beat Houston while pitching for the Marlins on July 10, 2011. The major league record for consecutive winless starts is 28, shared by Jo-Jo Reyes, Matt Keough and Cliff Curtis.Mets 2, Astros 1NEW YORK Ike Davis hit his second homer of the day with one out in the ninth inning soon after Lucas Duda cut a runner down at the plate, lifting the New York Mets to their first series win at home since early July, 2-1 over the Houston Astros on Sunday. Mets rookie Jeremy Hefner took a shutout into the ninth before giving up a tying double to Marwin Gonzalez. Gonzalez then tried to score on Ben Franciscos single. But Duda, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, made a strong throw home from his new position in left field. Cardinals 8, Reds 2CINCINNATI Matt Holliday had four hits and four RBIs to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Sunday. Allen Craig homered and drove in three runs as St. Louis handed the Reds just their second series loss in 13 sets since the All-Star break. The Cardinals have won five of six to move within six games of the NL Central-leading Reds. St. Louis 17 hits are the most allowed by Cincinnati in one game this season. Phillies 4, Nationals 1 PHILADELPHIA Cliff Lee tossed seven sharp innings to earn his first home win in nearly a year and the Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game sweep against the major league-leading Washington Nationals with a 4-1 victory on Sunday. Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer and Laynce Nix had a solo shot to back Lee (3-7). The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner hadnt won at Citizens Bank Park since September 5, going 0-6 in his previous 12 starts. Lee outpitched Jordan Zimmerman (9-8) by allowing one run and seven hits, striking out five. Marlins 6, Dodgers 2 LOS ANGELES Rob Brantly gave Miami the lead for good with his first major league home run, and the Marlins also got long balls from Giancarlo Stanton, Jose Reyes and Carlos Lee to beat the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Sunday in the finale of an 11-game road trip. Mark Buehrle (12-11) won his third straight start, allowing a run and six hits in 5 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and three walks. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth by retiring Hanley Ramirez on a popup and Andre Ethier on a grounder with the Marlins holding a 3-1 lead.

Associated PressCOQUITLAM, British Columbia Lydia Ko won the Canadian Womens Open on Sunday to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history and only the fifth amateur champion. The 15-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander closed with a 5-under 67 for a three-stroke victory. She broke the age record of 16 set by Lexi Thompson last September in the Navistar LPGA Classic in Alabama, and is the first amateur winner since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdines Invitational. To break another record, or being in the history, its amazing, and its always awesome to be able to play with the pros, Ko said. In January, Ko won the New South Wales Open in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event, a mark broken by 14-year-old Brooke Henderson in June in a 36-hole Canadian Womens Tour event in Quebec. Ko also won the U.S. Womens Amateur two weeks ago in Cleveland. I didnt cry after this one, said Ko, but (after) that one I did cry, Ko said, referencing the U.S. Womens Amateur. Yeah, to me, U.S. Amateur is a big event, and obviously this is a huge event as well. But still, as an amateur winning one of the biggest amateur events, I feel like it was a better win even though this one was awesome. Ko finished at 13-under 275 at The Vancouver Golf Club, pulling away with birdies on five of the first six holes on the back nine. She opened with consecutive 68s and shot a 72 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead into the final round. Inbee Park shot a 69 to finish second. Park chipped in for birdie on the final hole, and Ko closed with a bogey to make it closer. The pressure she was handling is really amazing, Park said. Im really happy for her. Its great for her career and I think I was just lucky to get the winners check today. U.S. Womens Open champion Na Yeon Choi, Chella Choi and Jiyai Shin tied for third at 8 under. Na Yeon Choi had a 73, and Chella Choi and Shin shot 71. The glove Ko wore in the final round will be displayed in the World Golf Hall of Fame. To have something thats mine to be up there, its amazing, and it doesnt come down or anything, she said. So it will always remain there, and itll be a good memory. Its been an awesome week. Ko plans to remain an amateur and go to college in the United States, possibly at Stanford. Kaymer gets automatic place for EuropeGLENEAGLES, Scotland Martin Kaymer of Germany has clinched the 10th and final automatic place in Europes team to defend the Ryder Cup against the United States. Nicolas Colsaerts needed a top-two finish on Sunday at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles to oust Kaymer from the No. 10 spot. The Belgian ended tied for 19th, but could still be selected Monday as one of Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabals two wild picks. Northern Irelands Rory McIlroy heads the qualifying list, followed by Justin Rose, England; Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland; Paul Lawrie, Scotland; Francesco Molinari, Italy; Luke Donald, England; Lee Westwood, England; Sergio Garcia, Spain; Peter Hanson, Sweden; and Kaymer. The Ryder Cup is Sept. 2830 at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago. Jay Don Blake wins Boeing Classic Jay Don Blake won the Boeing Classic on Sunday for his third career Champions Tour title, beating Mark OMeara with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff. Playing the par-5 18th hole for the third time in less than an hour, Blake tapped in for birdie after OMearas 15-foot birdie attempt missed on the low side of the hole. Blake and OMeara also birdied the hole in regulation for matching 4-under 68s that left them tied at 10-under 206. They missed short birdie putts on the first extra hole. OMeara pulled his second shot on the 498-yard, uphill hole, into the rough left of the green and his pitch checked up short. Blake went into the rough behind the green with his second shot, but his pitch nearly went in. Blake won twice last year on the 50-and-over tour, taking the Songdo IBD Championship in a playoff that included OMeara in South Korea and the Charles Schwab Open Cup. The playoff marked the fourth time in eight years that the event has gone to extra holes. Willie Wood, coming off his first tour victory last week in New York in the Dicks Sporting Goods Open, had a 70 to finish a stroke back. Michael Allen and defending champion Mark Calcavecchia followed at 8 under. Tom Jenkins was 9 under and two shots ahead entering the day in a bid to become the oldest winner in Champions Tour history. But the 64-year-old made four bogeys on the front nine and had a 78 to tie for 21st at 3 under. OMeara recovered from an opening 74 with a 64 on Saturday to get into contention. He birdied three of his final five holes, recovering from a double bogey on No. 11, his only blemish during the round. Blake also had just one hiccup in his round. His bogey on the par-3 13th gave OMeara the opening he needed to pull even. OMeara nearly won on the final hole of regulation, but his long eagle putt curled around the high side of the cup. Blake also had an eagle chance in regulation, but his putt from off the green slid past the edge of the hole while OMeara watched from the fairway. Associated PressBRISTOL, Tenn. With a two-handed toss of his helmet, Tony Stewart brought back everything that had been missing at Bristol Motor Speedway. It was the rock em, sock em style of racing that made the Tennessee bullring the toughest ticket in NASCAR, and fans fill the place for 55 consecutive races hoping to see bumping and banging on the track and the off-track drama it created. Progressive banking added in 2007 diluted the action, and fans turned their backs on Bristol in droves. Yet another disappointing crowd in March was the final straw for track owner Bruton Smith, who ordered changes to the track surface in the hopes the action would pick up and the fans would return. He got exactly what he wanted Saturday night, even if his idea didnt go exactly according to plan. Tempers flared again at Bristol the boiling point coming when Stewart heaved his helmet at Matt Kenseths car after the two wrecked racing for the lead and the action on track picked up enough to satisfy most fans. Five-time Bristol winner Jeff Gordon, who watched some of Bristols greatest races from the spotter stand before he began his Cup career, thought Saturday night looked a lot like old Bristol. Even though it was really tough to pass, it just reminded me of old-school Bristol, Gordon said. I think it was a success and I certainly had a lot of fun. I say they grind the whole place. Sounds awesome. I hope they do that next time. Believing the progressive banking had created too many lanes for drivers to use, Smith ordered the top groove to be ground down at Bristol. His desired effect was a tighter track that forced drivers to run around the bottom and use their bumpers to move cars out of their way. They had to use their bumpers, but it was at the top of the track where the action occurred. The new top groove picked up rubber as the race progressed, and the grip in the high line was too attractive for drivers to ignore. Denny Hamlin, who picked up his first Bristol victory, thought the racing was similar to years past. We were all running in a line and just waiting on the next guy to screw up to get around, he said. Thats what you had with the old Bristol. Thats how we had to race. I dont think we saw as much side-by-side racing, but you didnt see side-byside racing with the old Bristol. You just saw a bunch of cars in line waiting on someone to get knocked out of the way or mess up and thats the same thing we had. With it came the return of a vintage Stewart reaction following his accident with Kenseth. The three-time series champion had rallied from a lap down to run for the lead with Kenseth, but after the two came close to wrecking for at least an entire lap, they finally collided for reasons neither agreed upon. Stewart showed his displeasure by tossing his helmet at Kenseths car, and promising a rocky ride the rest of the season. Im going to run over him every chance Ive got from now til the end of the year, every chance Ive got, Stewart said. Thats the kind of responses fans expect at Bristol, where Dale Jarrett in 1993 threw his helmet at Bobby Hillin Jr.s car. Ward Burton once threw his heel guards at Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson made an obscene gesture, Gordon shoved Kenseth, Kevin Harvick charged after Greg Biffle, and, oh, the late Dale Earnhardt spun Terry Labonte in an effort to rattle his cage. On Saturday night, even Danica Patrick got into the action, angrily wagging her finger at Regan Smith after contact from him caused a race-ending wreck after shed worked her way to 19th. We were just racing hard, this is Bristol, this is why people love this track, because you see a lot of that, you see tempers flare, Patrick said. It was the perfect kickoff for the final push to set the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Hamlins win was his third of the season, and it created a four-way tie for most wins in the series. Should nothing give over the next two races between Hamlin, Johnson, Stewart and Brad Keselowski, thered be a logjam for the top seed in the 10-race Chase. And the race is still on for the final two wild card spots. A wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya was devastating for Ryan Newman, who slipped out of contention for one of the two wild-card berths. Headed into next Sundays race at Atlanta, Kasey Kahne is still holding steady for one of the spots. Kyle Busch moved into position for the second one, and he leads Gordon by 16 points. Newman fell to fourth in the wild card standings, 19 points behind Busch. And Carl Edwards, who lost the championship to Stewart last year on a tiebreaker, is still trying to find a way into the Chase. Hamlin was well aware of the repercussions as he chased down Edwards on the track, using a vintage slide job pass of Edwards to take the lead. Then he successfully defended Edwards attempt to use a crossover to take the lead back, and Hamlin preserved a win that helped him and Busch, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate. Gordon, who finished third, also had an eye on the standings. If Carl had won or Kyle had won, it would have gotten us way behind, so we kept ourselves in the battle for it, Gordon said. Weve got two more opportunities and theyre good opportunities. Im a little disappointed myself because I think we had the car and we had the track position and I got loose on new tires on that one run when we really had the guys I felt we had to beat behind us.

players jogged the traditional postgame victory lap carrying the flags for both their home country and the United States. We had such a great time in Pennsylvania and we really played a good game today. It was kind of a, Thanks, Osaka said through an interpreter. Starter Kotaro Kiyomiya struck out eight in four innings and added an RBI single for Japan. The game ended in the fifth after Osakas third homer made it a 10-run game. A day after pounding out a 24-16 win over California in the U.S. title game, the Goodlettsville, Tenn., sluggers could only muster two hits solo shots by Brock Myers and Lorenzo Butler. It was a bittersweet final game for two teams that grew close during their two weeks in South Williamsport. They exchanged customary postgame handshakes at the plate before Japan received the World Series championship banner and took their warning-track run. Tennessee was our best friends in the U.S. division, Kiyomiya said. Watney, who won for the fifth time in his career, finished on 10-under 278. In what amounted to a duel with Garcia for so much of the day, Watney fell two shots behind after he three-putted for bogey on the fifth hole and Garcia made a 40-footer for birdie on the next hole. Garcia, going for his second straight PGA Tour win, never had much of a chance after that. Watney two-putted for birdie on the seventh. On the par-3 eighth, Garcia scrambled for bogey from the bunker, while Watney holed a bending, 30-foot birdie putt to take his first lead of the day. Another twoshot swing followed on the 10th, when Garcia threeputted and Watney hit a beautiful approach to 4 feet for birdie. Both were sloppy on the back nine, but Watney hit all the right shots and seized control for good with a 10foot birdie putt on the 14th. I made more putts than I made all year, Watney said. He credits that to some tips from Darrell Kestner, the respected club pro at nearby Deepdale, a lesson set up by a friend. Kestner worked on his setup, mainly keeping Watney from leaning too far back on his heels. It paid off, Watney said. Tiger Woods, six shots behind at the start of the day, never made a move. He alternated between bogeys and birdies until the sixth hole, and his round imploded on the back nine with a three-putt double bogey on the 12th, a poor wedge that led to bogey on the par-5 13th, and a tee shot on the par-3 14th that sailed over the green and onehopped against the gallery. He closed with a 76 and tied for 38th. Woods left without speaking to CBS Sports or any other media. It was this third 72-hole tournament over par this year, the other two coming at majors. Bethpage Black didnt feel like one on Sunday. After a third round in which several players felt the greens were close to dead and nearly impossible to putt, there was plenty of water on them overnight. High scores were more a product of bad play, and it was difficult for anyone to make up too much ground because conditions were comparable throughout the day. And while it was effectively a two-man race for much of the day, there was plenty at stake in the FedEx Cup. Only the top 100 players advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship for the second of four playoff events. The biggest move belonged to Graham DeLaet of Canada, who started the week at No. 106 and was right on the bubble going into the final round. It turned out way better than DeLaet could have imagined. Despite back-toback bogeys on the front nine, he answered with four birdies on his next seven holes, and then holed out with on the 15th for eagle with a 9-iron from 161 yards. He closed with two birdies for a Sunday-best 65. Not only did he advance, DeLaet moved up 62 spots to No. 44 and should be safe for the next two tournaments. I guess a lot of people think theres too much volatility in it, but it was in my favor, DeLaet said. If you can have one really good event, you can catapult yourself up. And now I feel I have a chance to get into the Tour Championship, where this morning I was just hoping to play next week. Associated PressChampion at Wimbledon in both singles and doubles. Winner again at the All England Club in both events, four weeks later at the London Olympics. Nobody would blame Serena Williams if she felt worn down by this years jampacked tennis calendar. She doesnt see it that way, though even with the grind of the U.S. Open looming. I look forward to this, Williams said. Its almost as like a launching pad for what I want to do for the rest of the hard-court season. In a way, yes, Mondays start of the years last Grand Slam actually marks something of a new beginning the kickoff of a six-month stretch on the hard courts that winds down at the 2013 Australian Open. Call it mental gymnastics, a creative way of looking at things or whatever else might apply. What cant be denied is that in an Olympic year, the U.S. Open considered the toughest test in tennis even under normal circumstances is essentially the seasons fifth major. Indeed, many top players have had to double down on their fitness and find new, creative ways of organizing their schedules to get ready for what they hope will be a twoweek grind in the fishbowl that is Flushing Meadows. Defending champion Novak Djokovic barely took any time off following his fourth-place finish at the Olympics. He traveled to Toronto for a hard-court tuneup, played six matches and won the tournament. Then, he flew to Cincinnati, played six more matches but lost to Roger Federer in the final. No shame there, though that loss to Federer did include an uncharacteristic 6-0 whitewashing in the first set. No big deal in Cincinnati. But a half-hour mental lapse in New York could mean the end of Djokovics quest to win what has, essentially, shaped up as the tiebreaker major for 2012. Second-seeded Djokovic won the Australian Open. Rafael Nadal won the French Open. Top-seeded Federer won Wimbledon. Just for good measure, third-seeded Andy Murray won the Olympics, meaning the U.S. Open could essentially determine the player of the year in mens tennis. Some combination of Nadal absent this year because of a knee injury and the other three have occupied every spot in the finals of the past eight Grand Slam tournaments. Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Mark Sanchez looked pretty good for nearly three quarters. He just couldnt get the New York Jets into the end zone again. Tim Tebow had the play of the game, but also couldnt get that elusive preseason touchdown for the Jets. Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three plays later and the Carolina Panthers held on for a 17-12 victory Sunday night. The Jets (0-3) still have not scored a touchdown through three preseason games, an alarming display of ineptitude even though the games dont count. But Sanchez and the starters will not play Thursday night in the preseason finale at Philadelphia. The Jets lost three key players to injuries as tight ends Dustin Keller (hamstring) and Josh Baker (right knee) and linebacker David Harris (ankle) all left in the first half.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Hollywood may have run out of summer hits, but an anti-Obama documentary is helping to fill the gap. Holdover movies easily topped the weekend box office again, led by Sylvester Stallones The Expendables 2 at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend with $13.5 million. The weekends new wide releases were overshadowed by : Obamas America, which expanded from limited to nationwide release and took in $6.2 million to finish at No. 8. The documentary is a conservative critique of what the country would look like four years from now if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, Obamas America nearly matched the $6.3 million debut of the No. 7 movie, Joseph GordonLevitts action tale Premium Rush, a Sony release that played in more than twice as many theaters as the Obama documentary. The weekends other new wide releases opened weakly. Dax Shepard and Kristen Bells road-chase comedy Hit & Run, released by Open Road Films, debuted at No. 10 with $4.7 million, and the Warner Bros. fright flick The Apparition opened at No. 12 with $3 million. The weak openings are typical of late August, a dumping ground for movies without much audience appeal as the summer blockbuster season winds down and young viewers switch to back-toschool mode. Released by Lionsgate, The Expendables 2 raised its domestic total to $52.3 million after two weekends. In limited release, IFC Films Sleepwalk with Me had a huge debut with $77,400 in a single New York City theater. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass of National Public Radios This American Life, Sleepwalk with Me stars writerdirector Mike Birbiglia in a semi-autobiographical story of a stand-up comic struggling with career and romance, along with bad bouts of sleepwalking. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood .com. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. The Expendables 2, $13.5 million. 2. The Bourne Legacy, $9.3 million. 3. ParaNorman, $8.5 million. 4. The Campaign, $7.4 million. 5. The Dark Knight Rises, $7.2 million. 6. The Odd Life of Timothy Green, $7.1 million. 7.

Page B5 MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday Several significant successes are likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. Onlookers might view your objectives as unduly complicated, but youll see them as simple, because theyll be labors of love. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Insincerity will be instantly detected and result in you being labeled a shallow person. If you cant honestly find something worth praising in another, theres something wrong with you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Thinking big doesnt mean a thing unless you put your words into action. The only way you can achieve noteworthy successes is to earn them through effort and application. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Instead of viewing matters realistically, youre likely to color facts to suit your expectations. Self-deception will result in huge disappointments. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even though it might be hard to convince you otherwise, the world doesnt owe you any free rides. You shouldnt expect anything more than what you deserve. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be mindful of your behavior, or it will be far too easy for you to be overly attentive to one who doesnt deserve it while ignoring one who does. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A commitment you make might be of little importance to you but quite significant to the person to whom youre making it. Be sure to honor your word. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Pretending to be something other than what you are will be detected by your friends and will make a poor impression on them. The world will love you more if you are your own sweet self. Aries (March 21-April 19) Do not be too disappointed if someone whom youre very fond of does not live up to your expectations. Leave him or her some room to be human no one is perfect all the time. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Stop and think before you open your mouth, or you could experience one of those embarrassing moments when you say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, to the wrong person. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Thinking you have to be a big spender in order to impress someone is barking up the wrong tree. If you have to drop a lot of dough to get someones attention, then he or she isnt anybody you want to know. Cancer (June 21-July 22) When it comes to one-on-one relationships, treat everyone as an equal and forgo all forms of brinksmanship. If you try to put on any airs or affectations, someone will trump you. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Unless you keep pace with your obligations and duties, you are likely to sweep certain obligatons under the rug. If you do, youll pay a hefty price later.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday at age 82. D AVIDB AUDER Associated Press NEW YORK B y the yardstick of history, Neil Armstrong was among the most accomplished men ever to walk on the planet that he looked upon from afar one magical week in July 1969. Television news didnt seem to fully recognize the importance of the first human to walk on the moon on the weekend he died. In the hours after Armstrongs death was announced, news networks were airing canned programming jailhouse documentaries, a rerun interview with Rielle Hunter, Mike Huckabees weekend show. Menacing satellite pictures of Tropical Storm Isaac had much more air time than Armstrongs dusty hops on the lunar surface. Talk of the upcoming GOP national convention sucked up the air. A trio of factors played in to the lack of attention. First, Armstrong died in Cincinnati on a Saturday. Not just any Saturday, when news organizations have a skeletal staff, but a late August weekend. Half the country is at the beach. Its not a stretch to think inexperience on duty might have played a role in NBC News embarrassing gaffe: a website headline that read: Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on the moon, dies at age 82. (NBC called it a staffer error and said the mistake was taken down after seven minutes.) His death came as somewhat of a surprise, too. Everyone dies, of course, and most news organizations have prepared material on hand to mark the passing of famous people. In many cases, though, there is advance word that someone is very ill, giving the media a chance to prepare and plan. Armstrongs determined effort to live a quiet, private life after his astronaut days also left TV at a disadvantage. There was relatively little tape on hand to roll from interviews reminiscing about his experiences, reunions with old astronauts or public appearances. No Armstrong chats with David Letterman. No appearances in music videos. There was the moon walk, and not much else. Notable deaths often give viewers the chance to reflect, to put into perspective lives of great accomplishment or great notoriety. Not so with Neil Armstrong. His death was like his life: strangely muted given the magnitude of his achievements. First man to walk on moon gets silent treatment from TV news Last weeks winner tops weak crop of newcomers Expendables 2 draws $13.5M Associated PressLOS ANGELES Austin Chapman figured his short films must be pretty good, because theyve been sweepingmajor awards on the independent film festival circuit the past couple of years. He was never quite sure about the soundtracks, however, because Chapman, who is deaf, could never really hear them. Or any other music. Then, a month ago, he popped a brand new pair of bright orange, state-of-the art hearing aids into his ears and his world was changed forever. He cranked up Mozarts Lacrimosa and suddenly tears of joy streamed spontaneously down his face. He turned on Radiohead and Devo and an epiphany occurred. After years of scratching his head as friends around him snapped their fingers to the beat of Rolling Stones songs or got up and moved to the wave of electronic dance music created by DJ Moonboots, Chapman suddenly understood what this human fascination with sound was all about. The 23-year-old filmmaker, whose life has largely been visual, still struggles to adequately explain the rush of new sounds echoing through his head. He compares them at one point to seeing a highresolution photograph for the first time. Later, he describes the sensation as being exposed to a color youve never seen before. Finally, with a broad smile on his face he offers this analogy: Its like the first time you kiss a girl. Its like that. The experience came as he cruised around his Orange County, Calif., neighborhood with friends soon after getting the new hearing aids. He had always wanted to really hear Mozart, so his friends put on Lacrimosa, the brooding work the composer completed on his death bed in 1791. I was in the car and it was quite an experience, recalls Kyle Sinnott, Chapmans best friend since high school. He was nodding his head and moving his fingers. He cried at one point, and the same goes for everybody in the car. Everybody let out a tear. Born profoundly deaf, Chapmans condition was diagnosed when he was about a year old when his mother noticed he didnt flinch when a door was slammed behind him. Neither his parents nor his sister have a hearing impairment, and he says doctors dont really know why he was afflicted. Although he had worn his old hearing aids for only four years, they had already become outmoded. All he could make out with them were low sounds like those made by a bass guitar. He and others have been the beneficiaries of a remarkable breakthrough in digital technology in recent years that has made small hearing aids far more powerful, particularly in picking up higher-pitched sounds, says Gisele Ragusa, a University of Southern California professor and expert in deaf education. Shes watched as children were suddenly able to hear music for the first time and noticed they were often frightened until they got used to the new sounds. Shes not entirely surprised an adult would react differently, particularly after years of seeing friends enjoy something he could only hear fragments of, which she notes must have been annoying. He would probably feel elated and excited, and also have some sense of confusion at first, until he got used to recognizing what he was hearing, she said. Chapman quickly posted word of his audio breakthrough on the social network reddit.com, asking others what he should listen to next. To his amazement, within days he had more than 14,000 suggestions, everything from Beethoven to the Beatles. Associated Press Austin Chapman, 23, poses for a portrait Aug. 14 in his home in Costa Mesa, Calif. Chapman, born profoundly deaf, recently upgraded to a new set of hearing aids that allow him to hear the full tonal range of music for the first time. Deaf man hears music and cant stop listening

Winston Churchill said, It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see. When the dummy comes down, we are all used to looking ahead through the 13 tricks to come. But it is difficult to see that far. We get a general idea of how the play will go and look ahead at each subsequent trick. However, you should also look ahead during the bidding. In todays deal, take a peek at the South hand. West opens one club, North makes a takeout double, and East passes. What should South do? The choices are one diamond, one no-trump and two diamonds. The jump to two diamonds is a slight overbid. Between one diamond and one notrump, the latter has two pluses: First, it promises values (whereas one diamond might be bid with a Yarborough); second, it leaves South prepared for further competitive bidding by the opponents. Over one diamond or one no-trump, West will rebid two clubs. Then, if South had advanced with one no-trump, he could now comfortably continue with two diamonds. But after one diamond, South will be left with two diamonds, which is less descriptive. East might then compete to three clubs, but North would probably contest with three diamonds (although three clubs can be defeated by one trick). Assuming West leads a trump against three diamonds, East will win with his ace and shift to a club, causing South to lose one trick in each suit but make his contract exactly. Think ahead!

Because of the current job market, I am having difficulty finding a permanent full-time position in my field. I will most likely need to relocate to another state. The problem is my great aunt. She is a nosy gossip and occasionally puts me on the spot, asking me all kinds of questions. I am not, nor have I ever been, close to this woman. I usually see her only in church, so this is where these grillings take place. I find it highly inappropriate, but she backs me into a corner, and I end up answering her. She had the nerve to ask whether I will be allowed to move to another state. When I asked her what she meant, she alluded to the fact that my exhusband may not want me to take my son elsewhere. Annie, this woman knows perfectly well that my ex wants nothing to do with our son, and it is extremely hurtful when people bring up the subject. This man has chosen to remove himself from our sons life for the past two years. Why would she insinuate that hed block me from moving? I do not care to air my personal business to my drama queen of an aunt so she can have fodder for her gossipy life. But she is also family, and I do not want to cause controversy by telling her to mind her own business. How can I get her to stop her inquisitions in a tactful way? Niece in the Hot Seat Dear Niece : There are ways to avoid answering nunofyerbizness-type questions by obfuscation and changing the subject while remaining sweet and pleasant. But it sounds like you need to practice in front of a mirror because you get too flustered when cornered. Smile and say sweetly, Why, Aunt Bee, when I have news to share, Ill be delighted to tell you. Where did you get that lovely dress? You look 10 years younger. Then give her a big kiss on the cheek and walk away before she recovers. Repeat as needed. Dear Annie: I have a scholarship that makes my private college experience cost nearly the same as my sisters public education. Recently, my father told me that Im on my own in terms of paying for grad school, should I decide to go. This surprised me because he and my mother are currently paying for my sister to receive her masters degree. Even though I could handle taking out loans, Im a little hurt that theyd pay for my sisters entire education and not mine. How should I deal with this? Feeling Unloved in Kansas Dear Kansas: Its possible that your parents financial situation has changed recently, and although they feel obligated to continue with your sisters tuition, they cannot afford to take on any more expenses. The only way to find out why they appear to show favoritism is to ask them. But frankly, neither you nor your sister should depend on your parents to cover the cost of post-graduate degrees. Please look into scholarships, grants and other financial aid. Dear Annie : Faithful and Upset was besieged by a girlfriend who objected to his online friendships with women. While you agreed that she is insecure, you also suggested that he examine his friendships and ask himself whether she has a point. As a 64-year-old straight male in a monogamous relationship, my friendships are almost entirely with women and gay men. Why? I dont relate well to guys who want to talk sports, cars and how to barbecue. Women are much more interesting, with two of these relationships lasting decades. Fortunately, my fiancee has no issue with my friendships, which is one of the reasons I love her. In my view, Faithful is liberated from societys illogical, constraining norms.

CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterWell ahead of new Wal-Marts opening in the county are the dollar stores stretching across the landscape. These are stores with the word dollar in their brand name, whether their merchandise sells for a dollar or less or a dollar or more. Residents have noticed these stores springing up generously, particularly in unexpected rural areas. Eight Dollar General stores already are open for business in Citrus County, and six more are in the works. Earlier this month, a company building these stores asked the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission (PDC) for a change in INSIDE AUGUST 27, 2012Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOLUME 118 ISSUE 20 50 CITRUS COUNTY www.chronicleonline.com INDEX Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial....................A8 Entertainment..........B5 Horoscope................B5 Lottery Numbers......B4 Lottery Payouts........B5 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 Classifieds................B8 ONLINE POLL:Your choice?Do you watch the presidential national conventions on TV?

Rain chance 70%.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning MONDAY Good, bad about 11 state changes Amendments to be on ballotNANCYKENNEDY Staff WriterHeres what you need to know about the 11 proposed Florida constitutional amendments on the 2012 ballot: If you are for them, vote yes if against, vote no. Also, the amendments are listed as 1 through 12, but Amendment 7 has been removed from the ballot. Five of the 11 amendments deal with taxes. According to Judy Johnson, a Marion County attorney who is well-versed in constitutional law and a member of the Marion County League of Women Voters (Citrus County does not have a chapter), Florida has one of the easiest state constitutions to amend, and there are five ways to do it by the legislature proposing a change; citizen-initiative petitions; con st itu tional convention, revision commission or budget and tax reform commission proposal. In order to pass an amendment to the constitution, after the pregnant pig amendment (in 2002), the people of Florida said several years ago that we dont want a simple majority to pass an amendment anymore. Now it must pass by 60 percent, Johnson said. Thats the easy part of understanding Florida constitutional amendments. Understanding what they say and mean is a different matter altogether. Thanks to an explanation from the Johnson and the League of Women Voters, here are the basics of each amendment, plus what the for sides say about them and what the against sides say. Amendment 1 Health Care Services: This allows Florida to opt out of the federal affordable health care act, prohibits laws or rules compelling any person or employer to provide health care coverage or participate in any health care system. It also authorizes health care providers to accept direct payment for health care services and individuals or employers to pay directly for health care services without incurring penalties or fines. For side says: Individuals ought to have the right and freedom to choose their own health care and ought not to be forced by the federal government into a particular health care program. Against side says: The U.S. Supreme Court already ruled with regards to the Affordable Health Care Act and this amendment was actually on the 2010 Florida ballot in 2010 (and removed because of inadequate language) before the U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Therefore, it has no leg to stand on if passed, so why bother? Besides, the Florida Constitution is a governing document and this is not a governing issue. Amendment 2 Veterans Disabled Due to Combat Injury Homestead Property Tax Discount: This amendment expands the current homestead See CHANGES/ Page A7 See DOLLARS/ Page A4 Storm passes Associated PressA person braves the rain Sunday at Clarence Higgs Beach in Key West as Tropical Storm Isaac hits the area. Isaac gained fresh muscle Sunday as it bore down on the Florida Keys, with forecasters warning it could grow into a dangerous Category 2 hurricane as it nears the northern Gulf Coast. Storm likely to give glancing blow to Citrus CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterTropical Storm Isaacs trajectory wended west Sunday, giving Citrus County a better outlook for the beginning of the week. At 5:15 p.m. Sunday, the county was taken out of the hurricane watch area. The further to the southwest that it tracks, the better for Citrus, said Citrus County Sheriffs Office Capt. Joe Eckstein, who heads the emergency operations center (EOC). Around midday Sunday, the prospects for avoiding heavy flooding and rainfall and high wind speeds were better than previously anticipated. The only protective action we are taking is to open up the sandbag sites because of the amount of flooding that we may have, but we think that its going to be minor, Eckstein said. We are not closing schools or closing government. It will be business as usual. As residents who live west of U.S. 19 could expect minor flooding, sandbag sites were opened from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the county park at the corner of Grover Cleveland Boulevard and Grandmarch Avenue in Homosassa and on State Road 44 East in Crystal River across from Dans Clam Stand. These sites were set to reopen at 7 a.m. Monday and close at noon. Another sandbag site at the Crystal River Fire Station at 650 N.W. Third Ave. would be open 24 hours, according to the EOC. Eckstein said coastal residents could expect an AGL above ground level of three feet. Thats the total amount of water that theyre predicting at high Isaac moves west in Gulf Associated PressKEY WEST Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there. It was on course to strike land on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a powerful storm that crippled New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and became a symbol of government ineptitude. Forecasters expected Isaac to pass the Keys late Sunday before turning northwest and striking as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between New Orleans and the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday. The National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane warning for a large swath of the northern Gulf Coast from east of Morgan City, La. which includes the New Orleans area to Destin, Fla. A Category 2 hurricane has sustained winds of between 96 and 110 mph. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called a state of emergency and suggested that people begin leaving low-lying parts of the state. He also said he may skip a speaking engagement later this week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa unless the threat to his state subsides. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has also canceled his trip to the convention because of Isaac. Elected leaders vigilance toward tropical storms has heightened in the seven years since Katrina struck. Criticism was leveled at officials reaching all the way to the White House over what was seen as the federal governments slow and bungled response to the storm that killed 1,800. An emergency declaration was also issued in Mississippi by Gov. Phil Bryant amid concerns of storm surge threatening low-lying areas. Oil companies began evacuating workers from offshore oil rigs and cutting production in advance of Isaac.

AroundTHE STATE Tampa Paul: My backers will become the GOP tentCongressman Ron Paul lashed out at Republican efforts to marginalize his supporters at the upcoming party convention, telling a counter rally to stand firm because, in his words, we will become the tent eventually. The plucky GOP presidential candidate hasnt backed presumptive nominee Mitt Romney yet. He appeared Sunday evening at a rally on the edge of Tampa. Republicans officials have reduced the ranks of Paul delegates. The Texas congressman lectured his party about being too willing to intervene abroad, too timid in combating a monetary policy he sees as misguided, and too lax about preserving civil liberties. Paul told The New York Times he was denied a chance to speak because he refused to let the Romney campaign vet his remarks and give an unconditional endorsement.Jindal may skip RNC due to IsaacLouisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said hes considering skipping his speaking engagement at Republican National Convention because of Tropical Storm Isaac. Jindal said at a news conference Sunday afternoon he wouldnt leave his state while its threatened by the storm. Around the time he spoke, a hurricane warning was issued for parts of the state east of Morgan City, which includes the New Orleans area. He also called a state of emergency in Louisiana and suggested people leave lowlying parts of coastal parishes. Isaac is expected to be a strong Category 2 hurricane when it goes ashore along the Gulf Coast late Tuesday or Wednesday. Wednesday is the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.Man with machete arrested at protestAt least one arrest has been made during protests near the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Authorities said that on Sunday at about 2:15 p.m., officers spotted a man they said had a machete strapped to his leg. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said deputies ordered 31-year-old Jason Wilson to stop, but he kept walking. When deputies caught up to him, police said, he told them he did not have to stop and was allowed to carry whatever he wanted. Weapons are prohibited in areas police have designated as event zones. Police said Wilson, of Tallahassee, resisted arrest but was subdued and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office. He faces charges of carrying a prohibited item in the event zone and resisting arrest. From wire reports Page A3MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff WriterHaving agreed to pay an inmates $320,000 medical bill two weeks ago, commissioners will be asked Tuesday to change the rules to make inmates responsible for some medical expenses. However, the rule change will not prevent such a big expense in the future because it will apply only to medical care that is self-initiated or non-emergent in nature. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has carried the medical expenses of inmates, including those of a Pine Ridge man shot in February by a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy in the line of duty. By Florida statute, the county is financially responsible for an inmates medical care. But when the BOCC meets Tuesday, County Administrator Brad Thorpe will present to commissioners a revised administrative regulation to make the inmate responsible for reimbursement of his or her medical care if the inmate asks for non-emergency treatment. The only exception would be for an inmate who was injured by another inmate. Inmates who are proclaimed indigent will be provided care, but will still be responsible for payment of their medical care through their cash account at the county detention facility. A lien can be placed on this account for up to three years for an inmate who leaves the detention facility while owing for medical care. If the inmate would return to the detention facility within three years, the previous reimbursement requirement would apply. Refusal to provide information to establish indigent status for payment of charges may result in the removal of all gain time for which the inmate is entitled. At 1:25 p.m., the BOCC will present proclamations and conduct several public hearings. The board will be asked to approve and issue a proclamation declaring Sept. 17 through 21 Constitution Week in Citrus County, marking the 225th anniversary of the framing of U.S. Constitution by the Constitutional Convention. In public hearings at 1:30 p.m., the board will be asked to adopt and set fees and assessment rates for solid waste management for the new financial year. No rate increases to the fee schedule are proposed. At 1:45 p.m., the board will be asked to adopt the solid waste residential assessment roll and authorize the chairman to execute a resolution ratifying and confirming the residential solid waste assessment roll for the upcoming financial year. At 5:01 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing regarding a request by the owner of 27.5 acres of land at 2630 W.

WHERE: Citrus County Courthouse, Room 100, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. DAVE SIGLER/ChronicleLady, an 11-year-old Lab-retriever mix, showed her loyalty when she jumped through a window to help Scott Powell, left, who had been attacked by a neighbor. Susan Heron, center, and Tyler Powell, right, witnessed the attacker stomp on Lady while attacking Scott. BUSTERTHOMPSON Chronicle Intern HOMOSASSA Adog truly is mans best friend. That was the case on Aug. 7, during 16-year-old Scott Powells confrontation with a neighbor, which ended with the injury of Powells dog, Lady, as she tried to protect her owner. He got into the yard and suckerpunched me, and from there we started fighting and the dog jumped through the window and started biting at his ankles, Powell said. He stomped onto her leg and it broke and from there my little brother helped her into the house. I felt like she was doing what she felt was right. Powell came away with some bleeding and bruises. Powells mother, Susan Heron, also witnessed the attacks. The guy came up to the house and was having a conversation with my son. As I was walking toward the door to see who it was, he punched my son, Heron said. Our dog went thorough the screen in the livingroom window and went after the guy. Then I saw him kick her. The damages from Ladys attacker resulted in the dislocation of her leg, requiring her to receive orthopedic surgery and medications. The 11-year-old lab-retriever mix needs surgery and medication that will cost over $1,500, which the owners cannot afford. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office Animal Control Division partnered with The Humanitarians of Florida to provide basic veterinary care for the animal, but must raise money for Ladys surgery. We tried to put the leg in place, but it did not hold, Humanitarians President Maggie Hypes said. Officer Lora Peckham, supervisor of CCSOs Animal Control Division, praised Lady for her efforts. She did what she had to do. She saw that her master was in trouble and she tried to save him, and thats commendable, Peckham said. I think she would do it again. Heron wasnt surprised to see Ladys instinct to protect her master. Shes protective like that. Even when the kids growing up and the boys were wrestling, she doesnt like the fighting, she said. The offender managed to escape, and CCSO authorities are treating this as an open case. Family raising funds for dogs surgery after it was injured defending its master HOW TO HELP If you would like to make a donation for Ladys surgery, you can visit www.give forward.com/ladyneedssurgery, or you can mail cash or check donations made out to Ladys Surgery to Humanitarians of Florida, 1149 Conant Ave., Crystal River, FL 34428 or P.O. Box 924, Inverness, FL 34451. Associated PressTAMPA Tuesdays brunch with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and House Speaker John Boehner has been moved indoors. Schedules were rearranged to fill an open Monday evening. Sandbags were in place outside the hotel housing the 800-strong California delegation. The threat of Tropical Storm Isaac left delegates to the Republican National Convention recalibrating Sunday but insistent the show will go on with just a few modifications. The GOP postponed most of Mondays lineup. A revised convention schedule shows a brief Monday session that Romneys chief convention planner said would last no more than five minutes. One that went off as planned was Sunday nights kickoff party. Delegates flowed into Tropicana Field, taking advantage of the welcome event organized by the convention host committee. The home of the Tampa Bay Rays was transformed from baseball field into a party zone featuring three separate stages that showcased acts such as country music star Rodney Atkins, belly dancers and cheerleaders. Delegates got to drink as well as take in Cuban food and local seafood. As forecast changes, convention organizers sigh, adapt

rules to make it easier to build in rural areas. Aside from expressing the opinion the county is sprouting too many big-box WalMarts, some residents have questioned the influx of these small-box stores, as Dollar General describes itself on its website. Goodlettsville, Tenn.based Dollar General Corp. is the nations largest smallbox discount retailer. We make shopping for everyday needs simpler and hasslefree by offering a carefully edited assortment of the most popular brands at low everyday prices in small, convenient locations. A shorter shopping trip for some essentials is the purpose these stores aim to serve. But at times, this commercial mission has not been appreciated. Last May, at a meeting of the Citrus County Council, a resident posed the question to County Commissioner Joe Meek: You put in four WalMarts and 20,000 dollar stores. Thats going to raise our paychecks so that the expensive stores will want to come in here? How the heck does that happen? Contacted last week, Meek, who is president of the Citrus County Economic Development Council (EDC), reiterated the countys position. Dollar General, Family Dollar and these types of stores are going through an aggressive expansion plan throughout the country, Meek said. Their business model is to open stores in areas that are seen as underserved. We appreciate their investment in Citrus County. Meek sees the presence of these stores as part of the overall recovery of the economy. At the EDC, we are focused on attracting targeted industries light manufacturing, agriculture, recycling, technological development, medical and biomedical for higher-wage jobs, Meek explained. While the Dollar General-type stores are not among our targeted industries, they fill a need in the county offering the discounted goods that is a sign of our economy now. We hope the success of these stores will attract other retail outlets and our targeted industries to the county. So far, the small-boxes have been able to build stores following the countys rules. Dollar General currently is well into constructing a store on U.S. 19 in Homosassa, as the first project for Teramore Development. Teramores second project is in the works for a site on State Road 200 in Hernando. The third store, the subject of the Aug. 16 meeting of the PDC, is planned at the intersection of North Citrus Avenue and Dunklin Street in Citronelle, but only with a rule change. After that, Clark Stillwell, attorney for Teramore, told the PDC, the company would build three more stores. To be built, the Citronelle site would need to be within a designated neighborhood commercial node, the PDC heard. However, such a node could be established only for properties along U.S. 19, according to the countys comprehensive plan. Joe Hochadel, with the countys Department of Planning and Development, made the case that because the Citronelle site was across the street from a longestablished convenience store and gas station and would serve more than 6,000 residents whose closest shopping was six miles away, the area should become a designated neighborhood commercial node. With a separate amendment to clarify the establishment of nodes along other roadways than U.S. 19, the Citronelle site would become a neighborhood commercial node as identified in the future land use element of the comprehensive plan. What staff would like to do is amend this policy to reflect the current land uses, neighborhood needs, economic conditions and basically the planning principles in general so that we can establish commercial nodes along other places than U.S. 19 where they have a need for something like this, Hochadel said. Making this change to the rules raised points from people both for and against the idea. On the one hand, some Citronelle residents wanted a nearby store and county building contractors wanted the work. On the other hand, some residents might choose a rural residential location because it was removed from retail districts. The amendment would mean a homes remoteness from commercialization could not be ensured for the future. By a 5-2 vote, the PDC passed the request. The final decision soon will be put before the BOCC.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. LifeSouth bloodmobile schedule for August.

course to pass west of Tampa, but it had already disrupted the Republicans schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds that extended more than 200 miles from its center. Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with more than 550 flights canceled at Miami International Airport and about 150 from Fort Lauderdales airport. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 16,000 customers, and flooding occurred in lowlying areas. Gov. Rick Scott said at a news conference Sunday evening that only minor damage was reported from Isaac. Wind gusts of 60 mph were reported as far north as Pompano Beach, north of Fort Lauderdale. But while officials urged residents in southeast Florida to stay home, that recommendation was ignored by surfers and joggers on Miami Beach and shoppers at area malls. In Key West, Emalyn Mercer rode her bike while decked out with a snorkel and mask, inflatable arm bands and a paddle, just for a laugh. She rode with Kelly Friend, who wore a wet suit, dive cap and lobster gloves. Were just going for a drink, Mercer said. With the ones that are brave enough like us, Friend added. Along famed Duval Street, many stores, bars and restaurants closed, the cigar rollers and palm readers packed up, and just a handful of drinking holes remained open. But people posed for pictures at the Southernmost Point, while at a marina Dave Harris and Robyn Roth took her dachshund for a walk and checked out boats rocking along the waterfront. Just a summer day in Key West, Harris said. That kind of ho-hum attitude extended farther up the coast. Edwin Reeder swung by a gas station in Miami Shores not for fuel, but drinks and snacks. This isnt a storm, he said. Its a rain storm. With a laugh, Reeder said he has not stocked up aside from buying dog and cat food. The forecast wasnt funny, however. Isaac was expected to draw significant strength from the warm, open waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but there remained much uncertainty about its path. The Gulf Coast hasnt been hit by a hurricane since 2008, when Dolly, Ike and Gustav all struck the region. Florida, meanwhile, has been hurricane-free since it was struck four times each in 2004 and 2005. Hurricane center forecasters are uncertain of the storms path because two of their best computer models now track the storm on opposite sides of a broad cone. One model has Isaac going well west and the other well east. For the moment, the predicted track goes up the middle. Florida Panhandle residents stocked up on water and gasoline, and at least one Pensacola store ran out of flashlight models and C and D batteries. Scott Reynolds, who lives near the water in Gulf Breeze, filled his car trunk with several cases of water, dozens of power bars and ramen noodles. Cigarettes Im stocking up on those too, he said. Forecasters stressed that the storms exact location remained extremely uncertain a fact not lost on Tony Varnado as he cut sheets of plywood to board up his familys beach home on Pensacola Beach. With the storms projected path creeping farther to the west, the Mandeville, La., resident joked he might be boarding up the wrong house. Im going to head back that way as soon as we are done here to make sure we are prepared if hits there, he said. Before reaching Florida, Isaac was blamed for seven deaths in Haiti and two more in the Dominican Republic, and downed trees and power lines in Cuba. It bore down on the Keys two days after the 20th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, which caused more than $25 billion in damage just north of the island chain.

exemption available to disabled veterans to those who were not Florida residents at the time they entered military service. For: Veterans are veterans whether they entered the military in New York, Montana, Ohio or Florida, and if they were injured in combat, then we should reward them with a tax break. Its the least we can do. Against: Theres already an added homestead exemption for Florida combatinjured veterans we dont need any more exemptions. In Florida, cities and counties depend on property taxes for services and they are already stressed and stretched. Florida cant afford this. Amendment 3 State Government Revenue Limitation: This amendment has two parts. Due to population and inflationary changes, it replaces the existing revenue limitation adopted about 10 years ago. That means excess revenue would be placed in the states rainy day fund, and once the fund reaches 10 percent of the prior years total budget, the state Legislature would be required to vote to either provide tax relief or reduce property taxes. The second part says the Legislature may increase the revenue limitation by a bill approved by a twothirds majority. For: Government is already overblown and overgrown. This Smart Cap amendment ensures that the state budget doesnt grow beyond Floridas families abilities to pay for it. Against: The proposed revenue cap could prevent government services from keeping up with demand. Currently, Florida doesnt even have enough revenue to fund what we need, such as good roads, etc. Besides, even if this passes, the Legislature could increase the revenue cap, so it doesnt matter what the voters say. Amendment 4 Property Tax Limitation; Property Value Decline; Reduction for Non-Homestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal: This reduces the annual growth in assessment limitation on business and rental properties and second homes from 10 percent to 5 percent and prohibits increase in the assessed value of homestead property when the market value of the property decreases. This also gives first-time homesteaders, which includes non-owners for three years, an additional tax exemption equal to 50 percent of the median just value on the property. This exemption, which applies only to non-school property taxes, is reduced 20 percent each year, diminishing to zero in five years or less. If approved, this exemption applies to property purchased on or before Jan. 1, 2012. For: This provision will stimulate Floridas economy and its real estate market, encourage people who may have had previous homes foreclosed on to buy homes, will create new jobs construction and related jobs such as house painting, carpeting, interior decorating, lighting, etc. and bring new residents to Florida, which will help reduce the glut of houses on the market. Against: This would bring new residents to Florida who wouldnt be paying their fair share of taxes yet would be using the same services as others who are paying full price. Cities and counties are already stressed and stretched, and Florida cant afford this. Amendment 5 State Courts: This amendment has several parts. It adds a requirement for a state Supreme Court justice appointed by the governor to also be confirmed by the Senate. It also authorizes repeal of a court rule by a simple majority of the Legislature instead of the current two-thirds majority, prohibits re-enactment of any repealed rule and allows the Speaker of the House of Representatives to review all files of the Judicial Qualification Commissions even if it isnt related to impeachment considerations. For: Someone besides the judicial nominating committee and the governor needs to be looking at the qualifications and background of Supreme Court nominees. Also, this amendment makes it easier to repeal a rule and might get the Supreme Court to pay more attention. Against: There are three independent arms of the state government (executive, legislative and judicial), and this amendment usurps power from both the governor and the judicial branch. In the 40 years since weve been doing things this way there hasnt been a problem, so why change it now? Amendment 6 Prohibition of Public Funding of Abortions; Construction of Abortion Rights: This prohibits the use of public funds for abortions with the exception of rape, incest or to save the pregnant womans life. This also stipulates that the state constitution cannot be interpreted to include broader rights to abortion than those contained in the U.S. Constitution. For: This codifies whats already federal law, but just in case the federal folks change their minds, this will be in the states constitution. This will reduce the number of abortions in Florida and ensure that the privacy rights of women in regard to abortion are consistent with federal standards. Against: Theres already a federal law and Floridas right to privacy is already one of the strongest of any state constitution. This amendment interferes with a womans right to choose guaranteed by Roe v. Wade. Amendment 8 Religious Freedom: Also known as the Blaine Amendment, this deletes the current provision in the state constitution that prohibits taxpayer funding of religious institutions and would allow the state to use public money to fund religious institutions and schools. For: Religious organizations already fill a gap in providing social services that the general public can use, but are excluded from some state funding sources. If theyre providing services to state residents, they should be entitled to state funds. Against: If passed, this would ensure the creation and expansion of voucher programs for private, religious schools, and financially this is not a good time to have vouchers when the public schools are underfunded. Also, an unintended consequence could be the state interfering with the church rather than the other way around. Amendment 9 Homestead Property Tax Exemption for Surviving Spouse of Military Veteran or First Responder: This grants full homestead property relief to surviving spouses of military veterans who die from service-connected causes while on active duty or first responders killed in the line of duty. The deceased must have been a permanent resident of Florida on Jan. 1 the year they died. This amendment adds first responders to the existing exemption. If enacted, this amendment would authorize the Legislature to totally or partially exempt surviving spouses of military veterans or first responders who died in the line of duty from paying property taxes. For: If they died while trying to protect us, we ought to be able to provide benefits to their families. Its good public policy. Against: This is yet another category of exemptions that take away tax revenue to already strapped cities and counties. Whos going to pick up the slack? Amendment 10 Tangible Personal Property Exemption: This gives businesses an additional exemption on tangible property such as furniture and equipment used for the business, increasing it from the current $25,000 to $50,000. It also authorizes counties and cities to grant additional personal property and tangible tax exemptions. Pro: Lowering taxes will stimulate business growth in Florida. Also, this gives local control to city and county governments. Against: Businesses just got a $25,000 exemption and now they want it doubled? We already have enough business incentives. What we need is more revenue. Amendment 11 Additional Homestead Exemption for Low-Income Seniors Who Maintain LongTerm Residency on Property; Equal to Assessed Valuation: This gives counties and cities authority to grant full homestead property exemptions to lowincome seniors (age 65 and older) who have lived in their home for at least 25 years and whose home has a just value of less than $250,000. For: This helps keep lowincome seniors in their homes and allows local control. Against: Florida already has additional homestead exemptions for seniors. Why is another exemption necessary, why now and why just seniors? Were already cashstrapped; who will pick up the slack? Amendment 12 Appointment of Student Body President to Board of Governors of State University System: This creates a new council composed of student body presidents and requires that the chair of that council replace the current Florida Student Association member on the Board of Governors. For: This is just a cleanup process replacing one group with another. Against: The Constitution is a governing document and this is not a governing issue. Therefore, it doesnt belong there.

It would be whatever your high tide number is say 2 feet and if they are saying a surge of a foot, the total amount of water would be three. Residents who dont have sandbags by Monday morning still have time to get them before the high tide comes in at 1 p.m. First, the storm will draw the tide out to below normal levels. Right now, what they are predicting if it stays on the path that its on for Citrus County, starting tonight we could have two to three feet below normal tide, so that means its going to push the water out, Eckstein said. With the high tide at 1 p.m. Monday, coastal residents should expect some flooding. On Sunday, Eckstein led a webinar briefing with emergency management staff using the countys GIS (geographic information systems) map to overlay the three feet of water at different addresses around Kings Bay. It will show the actual amount of water that would be in that area, Eckstein said. Most places that we checked were anywhere from six inches to a foot (of flooding). Although flooding is expected for Monday afternoon, Eckstein said it should not be extreme. People can start sandbagging their areas, especially if you live in the low-lying areas that typically flood, Eckstein said. Rainfall amounts also will be lighter than feared. The total amount of rain has come way down, Eckstein said. They are predicting for our area from Sunday till Tuesday somewhere between 1 to 3 inches. We could get some very strong bands that come through from tonight (Sunday) and into tomorrow, but they are going to brush right on through. Its not going to be an allday downpour. However, no one should let down their guard, because the storm brings other potential dangers. There is a risk of tornadoes because we are on the northeast side of the storm, Eckstein said. Were going to have some pretty good wind gusts, but its not going to be severe. You could, in pockets, have some severe weather. On the east side of the county, rivers could rise later in the week. The Withlacoochee could end up being an issue in about three to seven days, Eckstein said. The storm, however, should have no effect on the river on Monday or Tuesday. Eckstein said the Green Swamp in Polk County would fill up and push water through the Withlacoochee River to Citrus County, with the possibility of flooding. Whatever weather arrives Monday should come as no surprise. It just gets into that whole preparation thing, Eckstein said. Weve been talking about the storm now for five days. People should have already gone out and cut tree limbs and branches and picked up yards and stuff like that so they dont have anything blowing around. We could very easily have tropical stormforce winds, but I dont think its going to be all day. CHRIS VAN ORMER/ChronicleEmployees with the countys public works department were shovel-ready Sunday afternoon to supply residents with sandbags to help stop potential flooding from Tropical Storm Isaac. The service at the countys site on State Road 44 East in Crystal River included bags already filled and loaded into vehicles. Assistant Public Works Director Larry Brock said sandbag sites distributed about 2,000 bags by 6 p.m. Sunday. CITRUSContinued from Page A1

Page A8MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 Declare independenceMuch more important reasons for energy independence than our provincial but real preoccupation with gasoline prices are geopolitical sanity and economic progress. Looking at the countries listed as Middle Eastern, it appears the vast majority derive more than 50 percent and up to 90 percent of their wealth from the extraction and sale of fossil fuels or hydrocarbons. Our national involvement and the countless lives and treasure lost to try to secure these hydrocarbons is hard to rationalize, especially when we know for a fact that we have or can produce all the energy we need and have enough to export for 300plus years. The only economically viable source of usable energy now and for the foreseeable future is hydrocarbons. Nuclear power is also a very viable source, but only if we overcome our fear of its use and make that source economically viable. France produces nearly 80 percent of its electricity via this method. We carry in our individual gasoline tanks enough potentially destructive power to blow up a city block, yet give it no more of a thought than carrying a teddy bear. The threat alone, if real, of American energy independence would change the economic and geopolitical spectrum of the world. As opposed to the current drive to hobble our own and the world economies, energy independence by the United States would reduce the price of energy for the entire world. It would free vast resources the entire world could dedicate to grow out of the grinding poverty that our current selfishness imposes on many of them. If our leaders were honestly worried about the reduction of tension in the world and the growth of poor nations, they would cease and desist their current drive to restrict American growth and prosperity and, by extension, that of the rest of the world. If your neighbor is hungry and your larder full, you will always fear his intrusion. So insist that your representatives understand that we must drill, frack and mine our way to energy independence and a saner world.Robin Humphrey Crystal RiverBoat responsiblyAt the end of July and in early August, my wife and I went scalloping out of Ozello. Like thousands of others, we really enjoy this sport. The scallops make a great meal, but hours in the clear, warm water and the chance to observe a lot of wildlife are the real draws. These grass flats are very important to our area not only for scallops, but as an estuary for fish, food for manatees and a buffer for storms. Thats why I was angry at one of the nearby boats. It was a large, deep-draft cabin, offshore boat with three large outboards. When it left the area, it fouled the water with mud. When the water finally cleared, we discovered a 10-foot wide swath of destruction through the grass, and about 2 feet into the bottom, we gathered a lot of damaged scallops from the area. There are a lot of us out there, so we have a substantial impact even when we are in boats of appropriate draft and use careful anchorage. But a few incidents like this can really do a lot of damage. If you are lucky enough to have a large offshore boat, please use it offshore. Respect the environment and your expensive equipment. Dont drag it through the mud and grass. Buy or rent an appropriate shallow draft boat. You can afford it. It doesnt take an expensive boat to scallop. As a side note: I called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to find out if this activity is illegal. To my surprise, they said it isnt, although it is in the Keys. Our grass flats are very important, and as the reefs, fragile and endangered. Do they deserve some degree of legal protection? Don Clark Floral City Lets take a short trip back in time to when the predecessor to Florida TaxWatch, the Citizens Council for Budget Research, was founded in 1979. On the technology front, the revolutionary Apple II computer was 2 years old, IBM was about to release its first PC and the Windows operating system was still six years from existence. The transportation landscape looked very different as well. The nations best-selling car was the Chevrolet Impala/Caprice sedan, which boasted a fuel economy of 15 to 19 miles per gallon, equal to some of todays biggest SUVs. And a gallon of regular gas cost roughly 86 cents, compared to todays average of $3.41. These are but some of the many ways our world has changed in the past few decades, but they illustrate how much Floridas tax system has failed to follow suit. Florida TaxWatch has been urging lawmakers to increase the collection of lawfully owed tax on products purchased online (or through the mail) from out-ofstate retailers for more than a decade. Some estimates of this uncollected tax are as high as $2 billion per year in lost revenue. Look at the evolution of Black Friday, the annual shopping extravaganza where many local businesses see a significant percentage of their yearly sales. Believe it or not, there was a time when Black Friday wasnt followed by Cyber Monday. But today, online shopping has become such a normalized way of purchasing goods that many of us will often browse the local store down the street, drive home and order the product online. It ends up being cheaper, too, with no shipping and no taxes, in many cases. Florida businesses are hurting as a result, and with more companies coming online every day, there is no end in sight without the Legislature taking action. Heres an interesting fact about the development in communications technology: the first generation iPhone had more computing power than the system NASA used to send Apollo 11 to the moon. I have in front of me at the moment three devices that 20 years ago would have seemed like science-fiction creations. Technological advances in communications, much like e-commerce, have so completely outpaced the financial systems set up around them in Florida that the Communications Services Tax must be reformed. Floridas transportation system is also suffering from technological advances, but in a much different way. There may be fewer people shopping in stores, but there are certainly not fewer cars on the road. Anyone who has driven anywhere here during the school year, rush hour, or on any random Saturday can attest to that. How is it possible that the gas tax can no longer function as the main support for our transportation infrastructure needs, if there are so many more people on the roads? Its simple. Todays cars are two to three times more efficient than they were 20 years ago, we have low-rolling-resistance tires that help improve efficiency on even the worst gas-guzzlers, and the technology continues to advance. The fact is, it is long past time for Florida policymakers to step up and reform a tax system that was effective back when being on the phone meant standing in your kitchen and watching your pets trip over a curly cord stretched across the room.The president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch for the past 30 years, Dominic Calabro has had a close-up view of Floridas ever-changing fiscal and economic policies.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherCharlie Brennan ............................................editorMike Arnold ..........................................HR directorCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest member Drive home desirability of nuke to Duke Citrus County leaders, citizens and businesses should not lose hope in convincing Duke Energy that repairing its nuclear power plant near Crystal River is the best thing for the county and for Duke. Duke faces a momentous businesses decision on whether to repair the damaged containment wall or shut down Crystal River No. 3 (CR3) all together. The containment wall was damaged in 2009 when workers cut a hole in it to replace the steam generators. During the work, inspectors discovered a crack had developed where the wall had been cut into. Workers repaired the crack, but discovered a second crack in the containment building when they applied tension to cables that run through the containment buildings walls. Progress Energy, which recently merged with Duke, decided at that time to remove and replace most of the concrete in the containment structure and return the nuclear unit to service. The repairs were estimated to cost a billion or more dollars, with a significant portion being covered by insurance. Duke has since said the repairs appear to be trending higher than expected, which causes concern for Citrus County residents. If Duke decides not to repair CR3, the closure of that plant would significantly cut county tax revenues, and hundreds of well-paying plant jobs would go away. Duke understands if it closes CR3 it would be placing the majority of its eggs in the natural gas basket and would also lose the stabilizing effect cheap nuclear energy generation has on its long-term fuel costs. Natural gas prices are low now, but in the past they have been quite high. Keeping nuclear energy reduces the companys exposure to natural gas market fluctuations. We encourage Duke Energy to remain diverse by keeping nuclear energy as part of its future plans. Likewise, county leaders should continue to move toward diversifying its tax base by drawing in other types of business to the area. However, county leaders, businesses and residents should not give up hope or the effort to convince Duke Energy that repairing CR3 is in the best interest of all.

Associated PressTAMPA The political risk was slight for Mitt Romney in scrapping the first day of his Florida convention in the face of Tropical Storm Isaac: TV networks werent planning to broadcast it live anyway. As the storm veered toward New Orleans, however, the decision about what to do next was fraught with peril. Romney is trying to balance celebrating his presidential nomination with being mindful of the ghost of Hurricane Katrina and the stain George W. Bushs handling of it left on the GOP You dont want to be having hoopla and dancing when you have the nation focused on tragedy and suffering, said Al Hoffman, a Republican from West Palm Beach and former finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. The next few days will test Romneys ability to both present himself to the American people as a plausible alternative to President Barack Obama and to lead a party still smarting from the image hit it took in the aftermath of the 2005 Gulf Coast devastation. Since then, Republicans have been so sensitive to the political danger around hurricanes that they delayed the start of their national convention by a day in 2008 when Hurricane Gustav bore down on the Gulf, a full 1,200 miles away from where delegates were gathering in St. Paul, Minn. Four years later, a storm again has delayed the start of the convention and again is barreling toward New Orleans, the city that Katrina so badly damaged. Memories of Katrina hung heavy over Tampa as Republican delegates traveled here to anoint the partys new standard-bearer. All over Florida a critical battleground state people were preparing for the worst. Homes and shops were boarded up in Key West. About 800 miles northwest in the Florida panhandle, the Wal-Mart in Destin had sold out of bottled water. By Sunday afternoon, Tampa was cloud-covered and windy outside the hall where Romney is to accept the nomination Thursday night. Inside, tense Romney advisers huddled to figure out how to proceed. Its a mess all around and its fraught with risk, said Sally Bradshaw, a Florida Republican and longtime senior aide to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Its not good for anybody particularly the people impacted by the storm. Weather was recognized as potential trouble when Republicans chose to hold their convention in Florida during hurricane season. Beyond safety and image concerns, Isaac presents another wrinkle for Romney: It allows Obama to show leadership and flex the levers of his administration to help people bracing for a storm. As forecasts grew grim, Obama dispatched the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist, and the White House said the president was closely monitoring the storm. The president also told the governor to let him know if there are any unmet needs or additional resources the administration could provide, including in support of efforts to ensure the safety of those visiting the state for the Republican National Convention, the White House said Sunday. The president had no immediate plans to visit. But he might as most presidents do if the damage is severe. And if he does, Romney would have to weigh whether to proceed with his convention or scrap more parts of it and cede the limelight to Obama. Mindful of the danger of appearing to put politics before safety, Vice President Joe Biden, the Obama campaigns surrogate-in-chief, canceled a campaign swing through Florida on Monday and Tuesday. Back in Tampa, Romneys convention planners were busy working to cram four carefully scripted days of speechmaking and celebration into just three. The announcement delaying the start of the convention came late Saturday, with Romney mindful of the good politics of putting safety before, well, politics. The safety of those in Isaacs path is of the utmost importance, Romney said in a tweet late Saturday. Romneys decision drew praise. Governor Romney and his team have handled the situation correctly, former Gov. Bush, a Republican, told The Associated Press. He added: There is no reason to cancel the event. Republican strategists suggested Romney celebrate without going overboard. You can tone down the happy-days-are-here-again a bit, said Rich Galen, a veteran Republican consultant in Washington. Maybe you dont have the biggest balloon drop in history.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, AUGUST27, 2012 A9 000C40B Home Improvement Package worth over $ 275 $ 275 Dryer Vent Cleaning worth $90 Air Conditioning Tune-Up worth $99 Carpet Cleaning up to 3 Rooms! worth $89.95 Call 726-4646 Today! 1 Regina Blvd., Beverly Hills (Across From Fire Station) 746-0330 Beverly Hills DENTAL CENTER Dentures, Partials & Bridges Invisalign (Removable Braces) Children Welcome Veneers, Bonding, & Extractions One Visit Root Canals Gum Surgery Implants One Hour Whitening Open Fridays Raphael C.

Associated PressAMMAN Dozens of bloodied bodies were buried Sunday in mass graves in a Damascus suburb where activists claim more than 300 people have been killed over the past week in a major government offensive to take back control of rebel-held areas in and around the capital. The British-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 32 more dead bodies were found in the streets of Daraya on Sunday and that they had been killed by gunfire and summary executions. Among them were three women and two children, the group said. It put the toll for the past week as at least 320. Another activist group, the Local Coordination Committees, claimed 300 bodies were discovered Saturday in Daraya and 633 people have been killed there since the government launched its assault last week. President Bashar Assad, in comments carried by state media, reiterated his long-standing claim that a foreign plot was behind the uprising against his rule and said he would not allow it to succeed whatever the price might be. It was impossible to independently verify the death tolls because of severe restrictions on media coverage of the conflict. However, activists and residents have reported excessive use of force by the regime in major battles, with indiscriminate shelling from the ground and the air. The Local Coordination Committees said some of those killed by regime forces in Daraya were buried in mass graves on Sunday. Video footage posted by the group showed bloodied bodies wrapped in colorful blankets lying next to each other with branches of date palms strewn over them. Another video posted on the Internet and dated Saturday showed dozens of bodies on the floor of a mosque in Daraya. Most of the bodies were bloodied and wrapped in blankets. The anonymous commentator said there were at least 150 bodies. Almanac forecast: Wintry and mysteryLEWISTON, Maine The weather world is full of highprofile meteorologists like NBCs Al Roker and the Weather Channels Jim Cantore. But the guy making the forecasts for the Farmers Almanac is more like the man behind the curtain. Hes cloaked in mystery. The publisher of the 196year-old almanac, which goes on sale this week, takes great pains to protect the identity of its reclusive weather soothsayer, who operates under the pseudonym Caleb Weatherbee. Calebs real name and hometown are a secret. And so is his age-old formula used for making long-term forecasts. The mystery mans forecast for the coming winter suggests people from the Great Lakes to northern New England should get out their long johns and dust off their snow shovels. Its also supposed to be wet and chilly in the Southeast, and milder for much of the rest of the nation. Even just to speak to the forecaster, the almanac would agree only to an unrecorded phone call with the man from an undisclosed location. The weather formula created by almanac founder David Young in 1818 was based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles. Since then, historical patterns, weather data and a computer have been added to the mix. The Maine-based Farmers Almanac is not to be confused with the New Hampshirebased Old Farmers Almanac. Both issue annual forecasts, with the Old Farmers Almanac scheduled for next month. Hello, pontiff Associated PressPope Benedict XVI greets the faithful Sunday during the Angelus noon prayer at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo on the outskirts of Rome. Pussy Riot members flee to escape arrestMOSCOW Two members of the punk band Pussy Riot have fled Russia to avoid prosecution for a protest against Vladimir Putin that sent three of their bandmates to prison, the group said Sunday. Five members of the feminist group took part in a provocative performance inside Moscows main cathedral in February to protest the Russian leaders rule and his cozy relationship with the Orthodox Church. The women wore their trademark garishly colored balaclavas, which made it difficult for police to identify them, and only three were arrested. After a controversial trial that highlighted Putins crackdown on dissent since he began a third presidential term in May, the three band members were convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in prison on Aug. 17. Days later, Moscow police said they were searching for the other band members, an apparent warning to the group to stop its anti-Putin protests. Pussy Riot tweeted Sunday the two activists had fled Russia and are recruiting foreign feminists to prepare new protest actions. From wire reports Nation BRIEF World BRIEFS Page A10MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON Most Americans say go ahead and raise taxes if it will save Social Security benefits for future generations. And raise the retirement age, if you have to. Both options are preferable to cutting monthly benefits, even for people who are years away from applying for them. Those are the findings of a new Associated Press-GfK poll on public attitudes toward the nations largest federal program. Social Security is facing serious long-term financial problems. When given a choice on how to fix them, 53 percent of adults said they would rather raise taxes than cut benefits for future generations, according to the poll. Just 36 percent said they would cut benefits instead. The results were similar when people were asked whether they would rather raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments for future generations 53 percent said they would raise the retirement age, while 35 percent said they would cut monthly payments. Right now, it seems like were taxed so much, but if that would be the only way to go, I guess Id have to be for it to preserve it, said Marge Youngs, a 77-year-old widow from Toledo, Ohio. Its extremely important to me. Its most of my income. Social Security is being hit by a wave of millions of retiring baby boomers, leaving relatively fewer workers to pay into the system. The trustees who oversee the massive retirement and disability program say Social Securitys trust funds will run out of money in 2033. At that point, Social Security will only collect enough tax revenue to pay 75 percent of benefits, unless Congress acts. Lawmakers from both political parties say there is a good chance Congress will address Social Security in the next year or two if the White House takes the lead. Yet so far, Social Security has not played a big role in the presidential election. About 56 million people get Social Security benefits. Monthly payments average $1,236 for retirees. The options for fixing Social Security fall into two broad categories raising taxes or cutting benefits, or some combination of the two. In previous polls, most of the options for addressing Social Security scored poorly among the public, which helps explain why Congress hasnt embraced them. But the AP-GfK poll forced people to make a choice: Raise taxes or cut benefits? Raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments? Democrats, Republicans and independents all favored raising the retirement age over cutting monthly payments. But there was a big divide on raising taxes. Sixty-five percent of Democrats and 53 percent of independents supported higher taxes, compared with just 38 percent of Republicans. The poll involved landline and cellphone interviews with 1,006 adults nationwide. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points. Poll: U.S. willing to pay more to save Social Security Most Americans value Social Security Social Security is far more important an issue for seniors than younger Americans, according to the latest AP-GfK Poll. Regardless of whom you support, who do you trust to do a better job of handling Social Security? Barack Obama: 47% Mitt Romney: 44% Dont know: 5%Neither: 4% How important is Social Security to you personally?

The Taliban rejected reports of Badruddin Haqqanis death, however, saying he was alive and well in Afghanistan. Haqqanis death would be a serious blow to the organization founded by his father, Jalaluddin Haqqani. The group, which has ties to both the Taliban and alQaida, has been blamed for a series of high-profile attacks and kidnappings in Afghanistan, particularly in and around the capital city of Kabul, and poses perhaps the biggest threat to stability in the country. Shafiqullah Tahiri, the spokesman for Afghanistans National Directorate of Security intelligence agency, said Haqqani was killed last week in an airstrike in Pakistan. He did not provide any further details, and would not say what information the agencys operatives were basing their conclusion on. U.S. officials have declined to comment on the reports. But Tahiris account is similar to one provided Saturday by a senior Taliban leader who said Haqqani was killed in a drone strike. It also hews closely to a version provided by Pakistani officials who said Saturday they were 90 percent sure the militant commander was killed in a missile attack Tuesday in Pakistans North Waziristan tribal region. The Taliban, who are closely allied with the Haqqani network, rejected the reports. Badruddin is considered a vital part of the Haqqani structure and is believed to have played an active role in kidnappings, extortion and high-profile operations in Afghanistan. Tahiri said Haqqanis responsibilities included arranging suicide bombers, maintaining relations with other insurgent groups, recruiting Taliban fighters for the Haqqani group and overseeing operations in southeastern Afghanistan and in Kabul. Afghanistan claims key member of Haqqani network killed Associated PressThis citizen journalism image provided by Shaam News Network and taken Sunday purports to show victims killed by shabiha pro-government militiamen being buried in a mass grave in Daraya, Syria. According to activist accounts, government forces retook the Damascus suburb of Daraya three days ago and have since gone on a killing spree. Reports of the death toll range widely from more than 300 to as many as 600. The Associated Press is unable to independently verify the authenticity, content, location or date of this image. Reports of massacre surface in Syrian town of Daraya World BRIEFS Women push sex strike to unseat presidentLOME, Togo The female wing of a civil rights group is urging women in Togo to stage a week-long sex strike to demand the resignation of the countrys president. Women are being asked to start withholding sex from their husbands or partners as of Monday, said Isabelle Ameganvi, leader of the womens wing of the group Lets Save Togo. She said the strike will put pressure on Togos men to take action against President Faure Gnassingbe. Ameganvi, a lawyer, told The Associated Press that her group is following the example of Liberias women, who used a sex strike in 2003 to campaign for peace. We have many means to oblige men to understand what women want in Togo, Ameganvi said.Former South Carolina Gov. Sanford engagedBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford proposed marriage to his Argentine lover in the same way he has lived since their affair derailed his political career: combining elements of secrecy with unfiltered expressions of love, and a touch of the weird as well. Sanford confirmed Sunday hes engaged to Maria Belen Chapur. He proposed to her on Wednesday in the Bella Italia Grille, a high-end restaurant in the upscale Palermo neighborhood, around the corner from Chapurs luxury apartment, the restaurants manager said Sunday. The manager said Sanford settled on a table for two near the door, and left the engagement ring in a small box with one of the waiters, telling him to give it to Chapur when she arrived. Then he hid out in the bathroom for disabled guests, where cracking open the door provides a direct view of the table, and waited for more than an hour before she arrived, the manager said. The waiter then gave Chapur the box. She opened it and seemed puzzled to see the ring until Sanford walked up, declared his love and asked her to marry him. She quickly said yes and they kissed and cried, but no one else in the restaurant seemed to notice, the manager said.From wire reports

Owens was released by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, part of the leaguemandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players. The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. that he had been released and the Seahawks made the move official later in the afternoon. Im no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, Im truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver. Owens wasnt the only veteran to get cut by the Seahawks. Offensive linemen Deuce Lutui and Alex Barron both had their veteran contracts terminated, while Seattle waived injured defensive back Roy Lewis (knee), tight end Cameron Morrah (toe), defensive tackle Pep Levingston (knee) and linebacker Jamison Konz (shoulder).Power wins third straight pole in SonomaSONOMA, Calif. When Will Power won his third straight pole Saturday for the IndyCar race in Sonoma, he didnt just put himself in prime position to go for his third straight victory in wine country. That single standings point awarded to the pole winner also increased his overall IndyCar lead by nearly 17 percent. Thats how close the standings are bunched heading into the final three races of an entertaining IndyCar season. Power boosted his lead over Ryan Hunter-Reay to six points with his fourth pole of the year, and only 29 points separate the top four drivers. The race Sunday could be just as unpredictable as the standings. With three track modifications to encourage passing in a longer race, Power isnt confident hell dominate in his quest for a third straight victory at the southern end of Northern Californias wine country.Indy adds CB Davis in trade with DolphinsINDIANAPOLIS Indianapolis bruised defense finally got some help Sunday. Four days after team owner Jim Irsay ignited speculation about a possible trade with a series of Twitter posts, the Colts acquired former firstround draft pick Vontae Davis to solidify their secondary. Miami will get Indys second-round pick and a conditional, undisclosed late-round pick in the 2013 draft a steep price for a veteran cornerback who recently lost his starting job, but one the Colts found reasonable. The addition of Davis came hours after the Colts took another big defensive hit when an MRI confirmed defensive tackle Brandon McKinney injured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Pagano said McKinney would likely go on injured reserve soon, ending his season.From wire reports Terrell Owens Baseball/ B2 Golf/B3 Scoreboard/B4 Entertainment/ B5 Puzzles/ B6 Comics/ B7 Classifieds/ B8 John Glenn throws first pitch in Cleveland./B2 SPORTSSection BMONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Watney has timely win at Bethpage Black Associated PressFARMINGDALE, N.Y. Nick Watney salvaged a dismal season Sunday at The Barclays with a victory that could not have come at a better time. Watney turned a twoshot deficit against Sergio Garcia into a three-shot lead in a decisive four-hole stretch around the turn at Bethpage Black, and no one got closer than two shots the rest of the way. Watney made a 10-foot birdie putt on the last hole for a 2-under 69 to capture the opening playoff event for the FedEx Cup. He wound up winning by three shots over Brandt Snedeker, who birdied the last hole for a 70. Garcia made bogey on the 18th for a 75. The win means Watney goes to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings and is assured a shot at the $10 million prize at the Tour Championship next month. Perhaps more importantly, it could be a big step toward an event that doesnt pay anything at all the Ryder Cup. Winning against one of the strongest fields of the year at least puts him in the conversation to be one of four captains picks for the Sept. 28-30 matches at Medinah. Davis Love III will announce his choices after next weeks playoff event outside Boston. Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk are likely to be two of those picks, and the other two are suddenly wide open. Snedeker, already under consideration, battled to the end on a warm day on Long Island. He made a 15foot par putt on the 17th hole and closed with a birdie to be alone in second place. Complicating matters for Love is that Dustin Johnson shot 68 and tied for third, along with Garcia. Japan takes LLWS title, beats Tenn. 12-2 Associated PressSOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Arms outstretched in the air with a smile from ear-to-ear, Noriatsu Osaka couldnt contain his glee. Neither could his teammates from Tokyo after Osakas third home run of the game put an exclamation point on Japans 12-2 victory over Tennessee in five innings in the Little League World Series title game Sunday. The 12-year-old Osaka added a triple for good measure, too, to top off his 4-for-4 afternoon. In a symbolic gesture, Japans Associated PressTokyo, Japans, players and coaches pose Sunday after winning the Little League World Series championship against Goodlettsville, Tenn., in South Williamsport, Pa.

Associated PressDenver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman (34) is tackled by San Francisco 49ers linebacker linebacker Michael Wilhoite (57) and linebacker Kenny Rowe (41) on Sunday during the second half of a preseason game in Denver. See WATNEY/ Page B4 On the money See TITLE/ Page B4 Associated PressDENVER Peyton Manning was magnificent in his final regular-season tuneup Sunday, throwing his first two touchdown passes for the Denver Broncos in a 29-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Manning completed 10 of 12 passes for 122 yards, including TD tosses of 10 and 5 yards to Eric Decker, and was nearly perfect. The two misses were a dropped pass by Joel Dreessen and an errant pass to Brandon Stokley, who was held on the play but didnt draw the flag. After managing one TD to go with four turnovers in his first seven possessions this preseason, Manning drove the Broncos (1-2) to scores on all three of his possessions, then put on his visor with 46 seconds left in the first quarter after staking Denver to a 17-0 lead. Alex Smith threw a 49-yard TD pass and David Akers kicked five field goals for the Niners (2-1), who outscored the Broncos backups 19-0 in the second half but lost wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. to an ankle injury early in the second half. For the second straight week, the Broncos backups were awful. In blowing a 24-10 halftime lead, theyve been outscored 40-0 after halftime in the last two games. Denvers first drive stalled when the replacement officials failed to whistle cornerback Carlos Rogers for a blatant hold on a third-down pass to Stokley, and the Broncos settled for Matt Praters 53-yard field goal. Manning was money after that. He completed all six of his passes for 83 yards on a long drive that ended with his first touchdown throw in orange and blue, a 10-yard strike to Decker, who beat Rogers over the middle. The highlight of drive was a 38-yard pass to running back Lance Ball, who left the game with a rib injury. Manning was blasted by linebacker Parys Haralson in the chest right as he released his longest pass of the preseason. Manning bounced right up, raced downfield, lined up in the no-huddle and hit running back Willis McGahee for 14 yards to the San Francisco 12. It was the second time Manning, who missed all of last season with a neck injury that required four operations, had been hit hard in the preseason, and both times he responded with a big pass for the first down. Notes: Mannings passer rating of 148.6 was nearly 100 points higher than what it was (48.8) in the first two preseason games. ... Broncos rookie RB Ronnie Hillman made his preseason debut after dealing with a pulled right hamstring and gained 29 yards on 10 carries.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBASEBALL Associated PressCLEVELAND Rafael Soriano and the New York Yankees dodged their way to an important win. Curtis Granderson hit his 200th career homer and Soriano shook off getting hit on the side of his right hand by a line drive as the Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2. It feels fine right now, Soriano said after getting struck in the ninth inning by a shot by Jason Kipnis that was headed right at his head. It hit my glove or my hand, Im not sure which one first. Soriano recovered to get the ball and make the out, then the righthander, Asdrubal Cabrera, on a soft liner for his 33rd save in 35 chances since replacing the injured Mariano Rivera as closer. The Yankees have battled injuries all year and after being swept in three games in Chicago, felt the Tampa Bay Rays closing in on their AL East lead. Were really fortunate, manager Joe Girardi said. New York took two of three from the Indians to open a four-game lead on the idle Rays. These are important games down the stretch, Girardi said. We need wins and to win series. Thats the way to do it, win series.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 5, Angels 2DETROIT Prince Fielder and Delmon Young homered on consecutive pitches in the sixth inning to support Max Scherzer and help the Detroit Tigers beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 on Sunday. Scherzer (14-6) gave up one run and struck out nine over seven innings. Joaquin Benoit struck out two more in a perfect eighth, and Jose Valverde struck out another batter while closing it out. Angels starter Ervin Santana (7-11) allowed four runs and five hits over seven innings.Red Sox 8, Royals 6BOSTON James Loney hit a tying single in his Boston debut and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in the go-ahead run as the revamped Red Sox bounced back from a nine-player trade and a 12-inning loss to beat the Kansas City Royals 8-6 Sunday. A day after he was the only major-leaguer coming to Boston in a deal that sent Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and more than $250 million in salary to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Loney went 1 for 5. Pedro Ciriaco had three hits, scored twice and drove in two runs for the Red Sox, who won for just the fourth time in 12 games.Twins 6, Rangers 5ARLINGTON, Texas Ben Revere had four hits, Cole De Vries won for the first time in nearly two months and the Minnesota Twins held off the Texas Rangers 6-5 Sunday to snap a five-game losing streak. The Twins avoided getting swept in the four-game series. They finished a 10game road trip with a 2-8 record. Josh Hamilton hit his 35th homer for Texas and drove in four runs, giving him a major league-leading 111 RBIs.White Sox 4, Mariners 3CHICAGO Tyler Flowers hit a goahead homer just before the final downpour and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 in a rain-shortened game Sunday for their sixth straight victory. Immediately following a 6-minute rain delay in the seventh inning, Flowers launched a two-run shot off Kevin Millwood to lead first-place Chicago to its second consecutive series sweep. Rain continued to pour until the tarp was put on to stay two batters later, and the game was called after a wait of nearly 2 hours. The start was delayed for 1 hour, 51 minutes due to showers that persisted throughout the game before it was finally stopped.NATIONAL LEAGUE Padres 5, Diamondbacks 4PHOENIX Edinson Volquez pitched seven effective innings and the San Diego Padres extended their winning streak to a season-high seven games with a 5-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday. The Padres roughed up Trevor Cahill (9-11) and had at least 10 hits (11) for the sixth time in eight games to complete their second sweep in the desert this season. Volquez (9-9) recovered after a shaky first inning and San Diegos bullpen escaped some sketchy moments of its own to win its sixth straight over Arizona.Brewers 7, Pirates 0PITTSBURGH Mark Rogers allowed three hits over five innings, Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-0 on Sunday. The Brewers won for the fifth time in six games. The Pirates have lost five of six. Rogers (2-1) won six days after picking up his first victory in the majors. He walked three and struck out five, throwing 101 pitches. Manny Parra pitched the sixth and seventh, Jose Veras struck out three around a walk in the eighth and Kameron Loe closed out the Brewers sixth shutout.Cubs 5, Rockies 0, 8 inningsCHICAGO Chris Volstad ended a 24-start winless streak Sunday, allowing three hits in 6 2-3 strong innings for his first victory in 13 months as the Chicago Cubs beat the Colorado Rockies 5-0 in a game shortened to eight innings by rain. Volstad (1-9), acquired from Miami for Carlos Zambrano, earned his first win since he beat Houston while pitching for the Marlins on July 10, 2011. The major league record for consecutive winless starts is 28, shared by Jo-Jo Reyes, Matt Keough and Cliff Curtis.Mets 2, Astros 1NEW YORK Ike Davis hit his second homer of the day with one out in the ninth inning soon after Lucas Duda cut a runner down at the plate, lifting the New York Mets to their first series win at home since early July, 2-1 over the Houston Astros on Sunday. Mets rookie Jeremy Hefner took a shutout into the ninth before giving up a tying double to Marwin Gonzalez. Gonzalez then tried to score on Ben Franciscos single. But Duda, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, made a strong throw home from his new position in left field.Cardinals 8, Reds 2CINCINNATI Matt Holliday had four hits and four RBIs to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Sunday. Allen Craig homered and drove in three runs as St. Louis handed the Reds just their second series loss in 13 sets since the All-Star break. The Cardinals have won five of six to move within six games of the NL Central-leading Reds. St. Louis 17 hits are the most allowed by Cincinnati in one game this season.Phillies 4, Nationals 1PHILADELPHIA Cliff Lee tossed seven sharp innings to earn his first home win in nearly a year and the Philadelphia Phillies completed a three-game sweep against the major league-leading Washington Nationals with a 4-1 victory on Sunday. Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer and Laynce Nix had a solo shot to back Lee (3-7). The 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner hadnt won at Citizens Bank Park since September 5, going 0-6 in his previous 12 starts. Lee outpitched Jordan Zimmerman (9-8) by allowing one run and seven hits, striking out five.Marlins 6, Dodgers 2LOS ANGELES Rob Brantly gave Miami the lead for good with his first major league home run, and the Marlins also got long balls from Giancarlo Stanton, Jose Reyes and Carlos Lee to beat the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers 6-2 on Sunday in the finale of an 11-game road trip. Mark Buehrle (12-11) won his third straight start, allowing a run and six hits in 5 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and three walks. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fifth by retiring Hanley Ramirez on a popup and Andre Ethier on a grounder with the Marlins holding a 3-1 lead.

Associated PressCOQUITLAM, British Columbia Lydia Ko won the Canadian Womens Open on Sunday to become the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history and only the fifth amateur champion. The 15-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander closed with a 5-under 67 for a three-stroke victory. She broke the age record of 16 set by Lexi Thompson last September in the Navistar LPGA Classic in Alabama, and is the first amateur winner since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdines Invitational. To break another record, or being in the history, its amazing, and its always awesome to be able to play with the pros, Ko said. In January, Ko won the New South Wales Open in Australia at 14 to become the youngest player to win a professional tour event, a mark broken by 14-year-old Brooke Henderson in June in a 36-hole Canadian Womens Tour event in Quebec. Ko also won the U.S. Womens Amateur two weeks ago in Cleveland. I didnt cry after this one, said Ko, but (after) that one I did cry, Ko said, referencing the U.S. Womens Amateur. Yeah, to me, U.S. Amateur is a big event, and obviously this is a huge event as well. But still, as an amateur winning one of the biggest amateur events, I feel like it was a better win even though this one was awesome. Ko finished at 13-under 275 at The Vancouver Golf Club, pulling away with birdies on five of the first six holes on the back nine. She opened with consecutive 68s and shot a 72 on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead into the final round. Inbee Park shot a 69 to finish second. Park chipped in for birdie on the final hole, and Ko closed with a bogey to make it closer. The pressure she was handling is really amazing, Park said. Im really happy for her. Its great for her career and I think I was just lucky to get the winners check today. U.S. Womens Open champion Na Yeon Choi, Chella Choi and Jiyai Shin tied for third at 8 under. Na Yeon Choi had a 73, and Chella Choi and Shin shot 71. The glove Ko wore in the final round will be displayed in the World Golf Hall of Fame. To have something thats mine to be up there, its amazing, and it doesnt come down or anything, she said. So it will always remain there, and itll be a good memory. Its been an awesome week. Ko plans to remain an amateur and go to college in the United States, possibly at Stanford.Kaymer gets automatic place for EuropeGLENEAGLES, Scotland Martin Kaymer of Germany has clinched the 10th and final automatic place in Europes team to defend the Ryder Cup against the United States. Nicolas Colsaerts needed a top-two finish on Sunday at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles to oust Kaymer from the No. 10 spot. The Belgian ended tied for 19th, but could still be selected Monday as one of Europe captain Jose Maria Olazabals two wild picks. Northern Irelands Rory McIlroy heads the qualifying list, followed by Justin Rose, England; Graeme McDowell, Northern Ireland; Paul Lawrie, Scotland; Francesco Molinari, Italy; Luke Donald, England; Lee Westwood, England; Sergio Garcia, Spain; Peter Hanson, Sweden; and Kaymer. The Ryder Cup is Sept. 2830 at the Medinah Country Club in Chicago.Jay Don Blake wins Boeing Classic Jay Don Blake won the Boeing Classic on Sunday for his third career Champions Tour title, beating Mark OMeara with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff. Playing the par-5 18th hole for the third time in less than an hour, Blake tapped in for birdie after OMearas 15-foot birdie attempt missed on the low side of the hole. Blake and OMeara also birdied the hole in regulation for matching 4-under 68s that left them tied at 10-under 206. They missed short birdie putts on the first extra hole. OMeara pulled his second shot on the 498-yard, uphill hole, into the rough left of the green and his pitch checked up short. Blake went into the rough behind the green with his second shot, but his pitch nearly went in. Blake won twice last year on the 50-and-over tour, taking the Songdo IBD Championship in a playoff that included OMeara in South Korea and the Charles Schwab Open Cup. The playoff marked the fourth time in eight years that the event has gone to extra holes. Willie Wood, coming off his first tour victory last week in New York in the Dicks Sporting Goods Open, had a 70 to finish a stroke back. Michael Allen and defending champion Mark Calcavecchia followed at 8 under. Tom Jenkins was 9 under and two shots ahead entering the day in a bid to become the oldest winner in Champions Tour history. But the 64-year-old made four bogeys on the front nine and had a 78 to tie for 21st at 3 under. OMeara recovered from an opening 74 with a 64 on Saturday to get into contention. He birdied three of his final five holes, recovering from a double bogey on No. 11, his only blemish during the round. Blake also had just one hiccup in his round. His bogey on the par-3 13th gave OMeara the opening he needed to pull even. OMeara nearly won on the final hole of regulation, but his long eagle putt curled around the high side of the cup. Blake also had an eagle chance in regulation, but his putt from off the green slid past the edge of the hole while OMeara watched from the fairway. Associated PressBRISTOL, Tenn. With a two-handed toss of his helmet, Tony Stewart brought back everything that had been missing at Bristol Motor Speedway. It was the rock em, sock em style of racing that made the Tennessee bullring the toughest ticket in NASCAR, and fans fill the place for 55 consecutive races hoping to see bumping and banging on the track and the off-track drama it created. Progressive banking added in 2007 diluted the action, and fans turned their backs on Bristol in droves. Yet another disappointing crowd in March was the final straw for track owner Bruton Smith, who ordered changes to the track surface in the hopes the action would pick up and the fans would return. He got exactly what he wanted Saturday night, even if his idea didnt go exactly according to plan. Tempers flared again at Bristol the boiling point coming when Stewart heaved his helmet at Matt Kenseths car after the two wrecked racing for the lead and the action on track picked up enough to satisfy most fans. Five-time Bristol winner Jeff Gordon, who watched some of Bristols greatest races from the spotter stand before he began his Cup career, thought Saturday night looked a lot like old Bristol. Even though it was really tough to pass, it just reminded me of old-school Bristol, Gordon said. I think it was a success and I certainly had a lot of fun. I say they grind the whole place. Sounds awesome. I hope they do that next time. Believing the progressive banking had created too many lanes for drivers to use, Smith ordered the top groove to be ground down at Bristol. His desired effect was a tighter track that forced drivers to run around the bottom and use their bumpers to move cars out of their way. They had to use their bumpers, but it was at the top of the track where the action occurred. The new top groove picked up rubber as the race progressed, and the grip in the high line was too attractive for drivers to ignore. Denny Hamlin, who picked up his first Bristol victory, thought the racing was similar to years past. We were all running in a line and just waiting on the next guy to screw up to get around, he said. Thats what you had with the old Bristol. Thats how we had to race. I dont think we saw as much side-by-side racing, but you didnt see side-byside racing with the old Bristol. You just saw a bunch of cars in line waiting on someone to get knocked out of the way or mess up and thats the same thing we had. With it came the return of a vintage Stewart reaction following his accident with Kenseth. The three-time series champion had rallied from a lap down to run for the lead with Kenseth, but after the two came close to wrecking for at least an entire lap, they finally collided for reasons neither agreed upon. Stewart showed his displeasure by tossing his helmet at Kenseths car, and promising a rocky ride the rest of the season. Im going to run over him every chance Ive got from now til the end of the year, every chance Ive got, Stewart said. Thats the kind of responses fans expect at Bristol, where Dale Jarrett in 1993 threw his helmet at Bobby Hillin Jr.s car. Ward Burton once threw his heel guards at Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson made an obscene gesture, Gordon shoved Kenseth, Kevin Harvick charged after Greg Biffle, and, oh, the late Dale Earnhardt spun Terry Labonte in an effort to rattle his cage. On Saturday night, even Danica Patrick got into the action, angrily wagging her finger at Regan Smith after contact from him caused a race-ending wreck after shed worked her way to 19th. We were just racing hard, this is Bristol, this is why people love this track, because you see a lot of that, you see tempers flare, Patrick said. It was the perfect kickoff for the final push to set the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field. Hamlins win was his third of the season, and it created a four-way tie for most wins in the series. Should nothing give over the next two races between Hamlin, Johnson, Stewart and Brad Keselowski, thered be a logjam for the top seed in the 10-race Chase. And the race is still on for the final two wild card spots. A wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya was devastating for Ryan Newman, who slipped out of contention for one of the two wild-card berths. Headed into next Sundays race at Atlanta, Kasey Kahne is still holding steady for one of the spots. Kyle Busch moved into position for the second one, and he leads Gordon by 16 points. Newman fell to fourth in the wild card standings, 19 points behind Busch. And Carl Edwards, who lost the championship to Stewart last year on a tiebreaker, is still trying to find a way into the Chase. Hamlin was well aware of the repercussions as he chased down Edwards on the track, using a vintage slide job pass of Edwards to take the lead. Then he successfully defended Edwards attempt to use a crossover to take the lead back, and Hamlin preserved a win that helped him and Busch, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate. Gordon, who finished third, also had an eye on the standings. If Carl had won or Kyle had won, it would have gotten us way behind, so we kept ourselves in the battle for it, Gordon said. Weve got two more opportunities and theyre good opportunities. Im a little disappointed myself because I think we had the car and we had the track position and I got loose on new tires on that one run when we really had the guys I felt we had to beat behind us.SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, AUGUST27, 2012 B3 000c9ss Publication Date: Wed., Sept. 12 Reserve your space today, call your advertising representative. 563-5592 Women in Business Featuring The 10 Most Admired Women Be included in this years Advertising Deadline: Tues., Sept. 4 Bumping, banging back at Bristol Associated PressDenny Hamlin does a burnout Saturday as he celebrates with his pit crew after winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Bristol, Tenn. 15-year-old Lydia Ko wins in Canada, makes history Associated PressLydia Ko, of New Zealand, is sprayed with water by Jiyai Shin, of South Korea, on Sunday after winning the LPGA Tours Canadian Womens Open at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam, British Columbia.

players jogged the traditional postgame victory lap carrying the flags for both their home country and the United States. We had such a great time in Pennsylvania and we really played a good game today. It was kind of a, Thanks, Osaka said through an interpreter. Starter Kotaro Kiyomiya struck out eight in four innings and added an RBI single for Japan. The game ended in the fifth after Osakas third homer made it a 10-run game. A day after pounding out a 24-16 win over California in the U.S. title game, the Goodlettsville, Tenn., sluggers could only muster two hits solo shots by Brock Myers and Lorenzo Butler. It was a bittersweet final game for two teams that grew close during their two weeks in South Williamsport. They exchanged customary postgame handshakes at the plate before Japan received the World Series championship banner and took their warning-track run. Tennessee was our best friends in the U.S. division, Kiyomiya said. Watney, who won for the fifth time in his career, finished on 10-under 278. In what amounted to a duel with Garcia for so much of the day, Watney fell two shots behind after he three-putted for bogey on the fifth hole and Garcia made a 40-footer for birdie on the next hole. Garcia, going for his second straight PGA Tour win, never had much of a chance after that. Watney two-putted for birdie on the seventh. On the par-3 eighth, Garcia scrambled for bogey from the bunker, while Watney holed a bending, 30-foot birdie putt to take his first lead of the day. Another twoshot swing followed on the 10th, when Garcia threeputted and Watney hit a beautiful approach to 4 feet for birdie. Both were sloppy on the back nine, but Watney hit all the right shots and seized control for good with a 10foot birdie putt on the 14th. I made more putts than I made all year, Watney said. He credits that to some tips from Darrell Kestner, the respected club pro at nearby Deepdale, a lesson set up by a friend. Kestner worked on his setup, mainly keeping Watney from leaning too far back on his heels. It paid off, Watney said. Tiger Woods, six shots behind at the start of the day, never made a move. He alternated between bogeys and birdies until the sixth hole, and his round imploded on the back nine with a three-putt double bogey on the 12th, a poor wedge that led to bogey on the par-5 13th, and a tee shot on the par-3 14th that sailed over the green and onehopped against the gallery. He closed with a 76 and tied for 38th. Woods left without speaking to CBS Sports or any other media. It was this third 72-hole tournament over par this year, the other two coming at majors. Bethpage Black didnt feel like one on Sunday. After a third round in which several players felt the greens were close to dead and nearly impossible to putt, there was plenty of water on them overnight. High scores were more a product of bad play, and it was difficult for anyone to make up too much ground because conditions were comparable throughout the day. And while it was effectively a two-man race for much of the day, there was plenty at stake in the FedEx Cup. Only the top 100 players advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship for the second of four playoff events. The biggest move belonged to Graham DeLaet of Canada, who started the week at No. 106 and was right on the bubble going into the final round. It turned out way better than DeLaet could have imagined. Despite back-toback bogeys on the front nine, he answered with four birdies on his next seven holes, and then holed out with on the 15th for eagle with a 9-iron from 161 yards. He closed with two birdies for a Sunday-best 65. Not only did he advance, DeLaet moved up 62 spots to No. 44 and should be safe for the next two tournaments. I guess a lot of people think theres too much volatility in it, but it was in my favor, DeLaet said. If you can have one really good event, you can catapult yourself up. And now I feel I have a chance to get into the Tour Championship, where this morning I was just hoping to play next week. Associated PressChampion at Wimbledon in both singles and doubles. Winner again at the All England Club in both events, four weeks later at the London Olympics. Nobody would blame Serena Williams if she felt worn down by this years jampacked tennis calendar. She doesnt see it that way, though even with the grind of the U.S. Open looming. I look forward to this, Williams said. Its almost as like a launching pad for what I want to do for the rest of the hard-court season. In a way, yes, Mondays start of the years last Grand Slam actually marks something of a new beginning the kickoff of a six-month stretch on the hard courts that winds down at the 2013 Australian Open. Call it mental gymnastics, a creative way of looking at things or whatever else might apply. What cant be denied is that in an Olympic year, the U.S. Open considered the toughest test in tennis even under normal circumstances is essentially the seasons fifth major. Indeed, many top players have had to double down on their fitness and find new, creative ways of organizing their schedules to get ready for what they hope will be a twoweek grind in the fishbowl that is Flushing Meadows. Defending champion Novak Djokovic barely took any time off following his fourth-place finish at the Olympics. He traveled to Toronto for a hard-court tuneup, played six matches and won the tournament. Then, he flew to Cincinnati, played six more matches but lost to Roger Federer in the final. No shame there, though that loss to Federer did include an uncharacteristic 6-0 whitewashing in the first set. No big deal in Cincinnati. But a half-hour mental lapse in New York could mean the end of Djokovics quest to win what has, essentially, shaped up as the tiebreaker major for 2012. Second-seeded Djokovic won the Australian Open. Rafael Nadal won the French Open. Top-seeded Federer won Wimbledon. Just for good measure, third-seeded Andy Murray won the Olympics, meaning the U.S. Open could essentially determine the player of the year in mens tennis. Some combination of Nadal absent this year because of a knee injury and the other three have occupied every spot in the finals of the past eight Grand Slam tournaments. Associated PressEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Mark Sanchez looked pretty good for nearly three quarters. He just couldnt get the New York Jets into the end zone again. Tim Tebow had the play of the game, but also couldnt get that elusive preseason touchdown for the Jets. Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three plays later and the Carolina Panthers held on for a 17-12 victory Sunday night. The Jets (0-3) still have not scored a touchdown through three preseason games, an alarming display of ineptitude even though the games dont count. But Sanchez and the starters will not play Thursday night in the preseason finale at Philadelphia. The Jets lost three key players to injuries as tight ends Dustin Keller (hamstring) and Josh Baker (right knee) and linebacker David Harris (ankle) all left in the first half.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Hollywood may have run out of summer hits, but an anti-Obama documentary is helping to fill the gap. Holdover movies easily topped the weekend box office again, led by Sylvester Stallones The Expendables 2 at No. 1 for the second-straight weekend with $13.5 million. The weekends new wide releases were overshadowed by : Obamas America, which expanded from limited to nationwide release and took in $6.2 million to finish at No. 8. The documentary is a conservative critique of what the country would look like four years from now if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Released by Rocky Mountain Pictures, Obamas America nearly matched the $6.3 million debut of the No. 7 movie, Joseph GordonLevitts action tale Premium Rush, a Sony release that played in more than twice as many theaters as the Obama documentary. The weekends other new wide releases opened weakly. Dax Shepard and Kristen Bells road-chase comedy Hit & Run, released by Open Road Films, debuted at No. 10 with $4.7 million, and the Warner Bros. fright flick The Apparition opened at No. 12 with $3 million. The weak openings are typical of late August, a dumping ground for movies without much audience appeal as the summer blockbuster season winds down and young viewers switch to back-toschool mode. Released by Lionsgate, The Expendables 2 raised its domestic total to $52.3 million after two weekends. In limited release, IFC Films Sleepwalk with Me had a huge debut with $77,400 in a single New York City theater. Produced and co-written by Ira Glass of National Public Radios This American Life, Sleepwalk with Me stars writerdirector Mike Birbiglia in a semi-autobiographical story of a stand-up comic struggling with career and romance, along with bad bouts of sleepwalking. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood .com. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. The Expendables 2, $13.5 million. 2. The Bourne Legacy, $9.3 million. 3. ParaNorman, $8.5 million. 4. The Campaign, $7.4 million. 5. The Dark Knight Rises, $7.2 million. 6. The Odd Life of Timothy Green, $7.1 million. 7. Premium Rush, $6.3 million. 8. : Obamas America, $6.2 million. 9. Hope Springs, $6 million. 10. Hit & Run, $4.7 million. Page B5MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday Several significant successes are likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. Onlookers might view your objectives as unduly complicated, but youll see them as simple, because theyll be labors of love. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Insincerity will be instantly detected and result in you being labeled a shallow person. If you cant honestly find something worth praising in another, theres something wrong with you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Thinking big doesnt mean a thing unless you put your words into action. The only way you can achieve noteworthy successes is to earn them through effort and application. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Instead of viewing matters realistically, youre likely to color facts to suit your expectations. Self-deception will result in huge disappointments. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Even though it might be hard to convince you otherwise, the world doesnt owe you any free rides. You shouldnt expect anything more than what you deserve. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be mindful of your behavior, or it will be far too easy for you to be overly attentive to one who doesnt deserve it while ignoring one who does. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A commitment you make might be of little importance to you but quite significant to the person to whom youre making it. Be sure to honor your word. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Pretending to be something other than what you are will be detected by your friends and will make a poor impression on them. The world will love you more if you are your own sweet self. Aries (March 21-April 19) Do not be too disappointed if someone whom youre very fond of does not live up to your expectations. Leave him or her some room to be human no one is perfect all the time. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Stop and think before you open your mouth, or you could experience one of those embarrassing moments when you say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, to the wrong person. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Thinking you have to be a big spender in order to impress someone is barking up the wrong tree. If you have to drop a lot of dough to get someones attention, then he or she isnt anybody you want to know. Cancer (June 21-July 22) When it comes to one-on-one relationships, treat everyone as an equal and forgo all forms of brinksmanship. If you try to put on any airs or affectations, someone will trump you. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Unless you keep pace with your obligations and duties, you are likely to sweep certain obligatons under the rug. If you do, youll pay a hefty price later.

SO YOU KNOW Last nights winning numbers, Page B4 Associated PressApollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong walks on the lunar surface July 20, 1969, in a picture taken by fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday at age 82. DAVIDBAUDER Associated Press NEW YORK By the yardstick of history, Neil Armstrong was among the most accomplished men ever to walk on the planet that he looked upon from afar one magical week in July 1969. Television news didnt seem to fully recognize the importance of the first human to walk on the moon on the weekend he died. In the hours after Armstrongs death was announced, news networks were airing canned programming jailhouse documentaries, a rerun interview with Rielle Hunter, Mike Huckabees weekend show. Menacing satellite pictures of Tropical Storm Isaac had much more air time than Armstrongs dusty hops on the lunar surface. Talk of the upcoming GOP national convention sucked up the air. A trio of factors played in to the lack of attention. First, Armstrong died in Cincinnati on a Saturday. Not just any Saturday, when news organizations have a skeletal staff, but a late August weekend. Half the country is at the beach. Its not a stretch to think inexperience on duty might have played a role in NBC News embarrassing gaffe: a website headline that read: Astronaut Neil Young, first man to walk on the moon, dies at age 82. (NBC called it a staffer error and said the mistake was taken down after seven minutes.) His death came as somewhat of a surprise, too. Everyone dies, of course, and most news organizations have prepared material on hand to mark the passing of famous people. In many cases, though, there is advance word that someone is very ill, giving the media a chance to prepare and plan. Armstrongs determined effort to live a quiet, private life after his astronaut days also left TV at a disadvantage. There was relatively little tape on hand to roll from interviews reminiscing about his experiences, reunions with old astronauts or public appearances. No Armstrong chats with David Letterman. No appearances in music videos. There was the moon walk, and not much else. Notable deaths often give viewers the chance to reflect, to put into perspective lives of great accomplishment or great notoriety. Not so with Neil Armstrong. His death was like his life: strangely muted given the magnitude of his achievements. First man to walk on moon gets silent treatment from TV news Last weeks winner tops weak crop of newcomers Expendables 2 draws $13.5M Associated PressLOS ANGELES Austin Chapman figured his short films must be pretty good, because theyve been sweepingmajor awards on the independent film festival circuit the past couple of years. He was never quite sure about the soundtracks, however, because Chapman, who is deaf, could never really hear them. Or any other music. Then, a month ago, he popped a brand new pair of bright orange, state-of-the art hearing aids into his ears and his world was changed forever. He cranked up Mozarts Lacrimosa and suddenly tears of joy streamed spontaneously down his face. He turned on Radiohead and Devo and an epiphany occurred. After years of scratching his head as friends around him snapped their fingers to the beat of Rolling Stones songs or got up and moved to the wave of electronic dance music created by DJ Moonboots, Chapman suddenly understood what this human fascination with sound was all about. The 23-year-old filmmaker, whose life has largely been visual, still struggles to adequately explain the rush of new sounds echoing through his head. He compares them at one point to seeing a highresolution photograph for the first time. Later, he describes the sensation as being exposed to a color youve never seen before. Finally, with a broad smile on his face he offers this analogy: Its like the first time you kiss a girl. Its like that. The experience came as he cruised around his Orange County, Calif., neighborhood with friends soon after getting the new hearing aids. He had always wanted to really hear Mozart, so his friends put on Lacrimosa, the brooding work the composer completed on his death bed in 1791. I was in the car and it was quite an experience, recalls Kyle Sinnott, Chapmans best friend since high school. He was nodding his head and moving his fingers. He cried at one point, and the same goes for everybody in the car. Everybody let out a tear. Born profoundly deaf, Chapmans condition was diagnosed when he was about a year old when his mother noticed he didnt flinch when a door was slammed behind him. Neither his parents nor his sister have a hearing impairment, and he says doctors dont really know why he was afflicted. Although he had worn his old hearing aids for only four years, they had already become outmoded. All he could make out with them were low sounds like those made by a bass guitar. He and others have been the beneficiaries of a remarkable breakthrough in digital technology in recent years that has made small hearing aids far more powerful, particularly in picking up higher-pitched sounds, says Gisele Ragusa, a University of Southern California professor and expert in deaf education. Shes watched as children were suddenly able to hear music for the first time and noticed they were often frightened until they got used to the new sounds. Shes not entirely surprised an adult would react differently, particularly after years of seeing friends enjoy something he could only hear fragments of, which she notes must have been annoying. He would probably feel elated and excited, and also have some sense of confusion at first, until he got used to recognizing what he was hearing, she said. Chapman quickly posted word of his audio breakthrough on the social network reddit.com, asking others what he should listen to next. To his amazement, within days he had more than 14,000 suggestions, everything from Beethoven to the Beatles. Associated PressAustin Chapman, 23, poses for a portrait Aug. 14 in his home in Costa Mesa, Calif. Chapman, born profoundly deaf, recently upgraded to a new set of hearing aids that allow him to hear the full tonal range of music for the first time. Deaf man hears music and cant stop listening

B6MONDAY, AUGUST27, 2012CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Winston Churchill said, It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can see. When the dummy comes down, we are all used to looking ahead through the 13 tricks to come. But it is difficult to see that far. We get a general idea of how the play will go and look ahead at each subsequent trick. However, you should also look ahead during the bidding. In todays deal, take a peek at the South hand. West opens one club, North makes a takeout double, and East passes. What should South do? The choices are one diamond, one no-trump and two diamonds. The jump to two diamonds is a slight overbid. Between one diamond and one notrump, the latter has two pluses: First, it promises values (whereas one diamond might be bid with a Yarborough); second, it leaves South prepared for further competitive bidding by the opponents. Over one diamond or one no-trump, West will rebid two clubs. Then, if South had advanced with one no-trump, he could now comfortably continue with two diamonds. But after one diamond, South will be left with two diamonds, which is less descriptive. East might then compete to three clubs, but North would probably contest with three diamonds (although three clubs can be defeated by one trick). Assuming West leads a trump against three diamonds, East will win with his ace and shift to a club, causing South to lose one trick in each suit but make his contract exactly. Think ahead!

Because of the current job market, I am having difficulty finding a permanent full-time position in my field. I will most likely need to relocate to another state. The problem is my great aunt. She is a nosy gossip and occasionally puts me on the spot, asking me all kinds of questions. I am not, nor have I ever been, close to this woman. I usually see her only in church, so this is where these grillings take place. I find it highly inappropriate, but she backs me into a corner, and I end up answering her. She had the nerve to ask whether I will be allowed to move to another state. When I asked her what she meant, she alluded to the fact that my exhusband may not want me to take my son elsewhere. Annie, this woman knows perfectly well that my ex wants nothing to do with our son, and it is extremely hurtful when people bring up the subject. This man has chosen to remove himself from our sons life for the past two years. Why would she insinuate that hed block me from moving? I do not care to air my personal business to my drama queen of an aunt so she can have fodder for her gossipy life. But she is also family, and I do not want to cause controversy by telling her to mind her own business. How can I get her to stop her inquisitions in a tactful way? Niece in the Hot Seat Dear Niece: There are ways to avoid answering nunofyerbizness-type questions by obfuscation and changing the subject while remaining sweet and pleasant. But it sounds like you need to practice in front of a mirror because you get too flustered when cornered. Smile and say sweetly, Why, Aunt Bee, when I have news to share, Ill be delighted to tell you. Where did you get that lovely dress? You look 10 years younger. Then give her a big kiss on the cheek and walk away before she recovers. Repeat as needed. Dear Annie: I have a scholarship that makes my private college experience cost nearly the same as my sisters public education. Recently, my father told me that Im on my own in terms of paying for grad school, should I decide to go. This surprised me because he and my mother are currently paying for my sister to receive her masters degree. Even though I could handle taking out loans, Im a little hurt that theyd pay for my sisters entire education and not mine. How should I deal with this? Feeling Unloved in Kansas Dear Kansas: Its possible that your parents financial situation has changed recently, and although they feel obligated to continue with your sisters tuition, they cannot afford to take on any more expenses. The only way to find out why they appear to show favoritism is to ask them. But frankly, neither you nor your sister should depend on your parents to cover the cost of post-graduate degrees. Please look into scholarships, grants and other financial aid. Dear Annie: Faithful and Upset was besieged by a girlfriend who objected to his online friendships with women. While you agreed that she is insecure, you also suggested that he examine his friendships and ask himself whether she has a point. As a 64-year-old straight male in a monogamous relationship, my friendships are almost entirely with women and gay men. Why? I dont relate well to guys who want to talk sports, cars and how to barbecue. Women are much more interesting, with two of these relationships lasting decades. Fortunately, my fiancee has no issue with my friendships, which is one of the reasons I love her. In my view, Faithful is liberated from societys illogical, constraining norms.
