MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Carol Lee Johnson, who lives in the Terra Vista community in Citrus Hills, displays the new pink Cadillac SRX she was awarded by the Mary Kay cosmetics company. This is Johnsons 16th pink Cadillac awarded to her by the company for top sales. The pearlescent pink is visible only in certain light at first glance, it may look white. Cosmetics executive earns another pink Cadillac for top sales B USTER T HOMPSON Chronicle Intern HERNANDO hen it comes to owning cars, the more the merrier, but having owned 16 without paying for them is almost unthinkable. That wasnt the case for Mary Kay future executive Carol Lee Johnson, who received a pink Cadillac SRX in June her 16th career car for selling more than $96,000 in skin care products within a six-month period. Johnson was one of 7,300 qualified independent sales members awarded one of the 1,400 specially manufactured, pearlized pink, Mary Kay Cadillacs. Founded in 1963, Mary Kays company policy is to help women achieve financial success. As a coordinator of individual sales members, Johnson said she could not have accomplished this goal without her team of more than 250 beauty consultants, four sales directors and their staff who sell directly to customers in 20 states.

Sun Myung Moon was a selfproclaimed messiah who built a global business empire. He called both North Korean leaders and American presidents his friends, but spent time in prisons in both countries. His followers around the world cherished him, while his detractors accused him of brainwashing recruits and extracting money from worshippers. These contradictions did nothing to stop the founder of the Unification Church from turning his religious vision into a worldwide movement and a multibillion-dollar corporation stretching from the Korean Peninsula to the United States.

CCHB offers to drop golden parachute lawsuit M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterINVERNESS With the future governance fate at Citrus Memorial hospital now resting with an appeals court, both sides in the dispute are eyeing a fund that was set aside a year ago for severance pay in a what-if scenario. The Citrus County Hospital Board which sued Citrus Memorial Health System over what the CCHB termed a $1.4 million golden parachute severance arrangement offered to drop the lawsuit. CMHS used the money instead for employee pay raises. Meanwhile, hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty inquired of Regions Bank, where the trust is located, the steps necessary to release the funds back to the foundation. Beaty said he has no plans for the funds. Rather, he said, the hospital could use the cash for expenses and other needs. Thats 65 days of cash just sitting there, Beaty said. The hospital foundation board set up the trust for Beaty and senior administrators whose jobs may be in peril if trustees took voting control of the foundation. Payouts would only occur to Beaty and top officials if they lost their jobs as a result of the turnover. A 2011 state law gives trustees oversight of the hospital. The foundation sued to overturn the law; a Tallahassee judge ruled in the trustees favor and the case is now awaiting a ruling of a three-judge court of appeals in Leon County. CCHB Chairman Michael Smallridge sent a letter in late July to James Sanders, chairman of the foundation board of directors. In it, Smallridge said trustees agreed they would drop the golden parachute lawsuit if the foundation made the $1.4 million available for employee pay raises. The hospital employees are deserving of a raise and the payment will go a long way to increasing the morale of the employees ... Smallridge wrote. CMHS has not responded to the offer. Regions Bank is also a defendant in the severance lawsuit because it holds the trust account. The banks attorney, Andrew Collinson, wrote an email to attorneys involved in the lawsuit to say Beaty had inquired about the funds. Collinson wrote the bank is not opposed to releasing the funds to the hospital but would do that only with a court order.

A month of recycling keeps 21 tons out of landfill Special to the ChronicleCRYSTAL RIVER What do 21 Volkswagen Beetles, three elephants and a single months worth of recycled material from the Crystal River Nuclear Plant Unit 3 (CR3) have in common? They all weigh about 21 tons. CR3 employees recently launched a comprehensive recycling initiative and are diverting approximately 85 percent of previously discarded trash, according to Jon Franke, site vice president. The plants recycling success caught the attention of Keep Citrus County Beautiful (KCCB) board members, who presented a Pride Award to the program for helping to promote responsible environmental stewardship in the community. KCCB is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 to help homeowners and businesses in Citrus County develop waste solutions and foster a litter-free community. The amount of material that CR3 has diverted from mainstream disposal in just one month is quite remarkable, KCCB president Susie Metcalfe said. Recycling programs usually require a learning curve, but CR3 employees jumped on board immediately. We hope that by recognizing their accomplishment, well inspire other area businesses to lessen their environmental footprints, she added. To launch CR3s recycling program, employees formed a task force, calling themselves the Blue Crew, a reference to the bright blue containers commonly used for recycling throughout the United States. Although CR3 had a limited recycling program for a number of years, the Blue Crew initiative is CR3s first concentrated site-wide effort to divert the majority of its office product waste into a recycling system. Led by CR3 employee volunteer Natalie Harness, the Blue Crew analyzed recycling options available to businesses in Citrus County before selecting a singlestream recycling process. With the single-stream process, employees can place all recyclable material including paper products, plastics and aluminum cans in single bins. When we conducted our research, we discovered we could save about $145,000 a year in disposal costs and also implement a program that is extremely easy and convenient for employees to use, Harness said. Plus, it is the right thing to do. Our employees are very motivated to do their part to help preserve the planet for future generations. The Blue Crew team has distributed 1,000 blue recycling bins throughout CR3, so workers have the opportunity to recycle at their work stations whether they are in an office or in the field. Recycling saves energy, creates jobs and is great for the environment, Harness said. Were happy to be a part of the solution and hope we are showing other businesses how easy it is to make a difference.

Around THE STATE Citrus County Boat fire leaves two with minor injuries Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue Service responded Sunday morning to a small fire on a boat in the Homosassa River. The countys 911 dispatch received a call at 10:17 a.m., alerting that smoke was rising from the vessel, a 20-foot Sea Pro, that had drifted about a quarter-mile from MacRaes, by marker 81. According to Gail Tierney, CCSO spokeswoman, three or four people were in the cabin of the boat and could not get the motor to crank. At some point, Tierney said, a fire flashed, causing very minor injuries to two victims, plus damaging a life preserver and boat cushion. Family and friends came alongside in another boat to evacuate the drifting vessel. The fire was out by the time Fire Rescue arrived on scene. The second vessel was towing in the inoperable boat. The boaters refused transport to a hospital, but were checked out and released by Nature Coast Emergency Medical Service onshore. The Coast Guard also responded.

IsaacOfficials said Tropical Storm Isaac hadnt dampened holiday celebrations in the Keys. Isaac had sustained winds up to 60 mph when it brushed the Keys a week ago. The storm left no significant impacts, but visitors were urged to leave before Isaac arrived. Officials estimated about $12 million in lost tourism revenues, saying deficits would have been greater had Isaac arrived during busier times. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Beached whales doing better Associated PressMIAMI Veterinarians fed fish drinks to five rescued pilot whales Sunday and kept a close eye on them, trying to nurse the mammals back to health so they can one day return to the ocean. The five whales were among a group of 22 whales beached in South Florida on Saturday. The rest died of natural causes or had to be euthanized. The two calves and three juveniles were brought to Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch Institute for rehabilitation. Experts said the animals were worn out, but mostly doing well. Theyve all been through a pretty stressful ordeal. Weve seen each of them, at one point or another, have a little bit of trouble and need a little bit of help, said Dr. Michelle Davis, senior veterinarian for SeaWorld Orlando. Some of the whales have been breathing faster than usual at times, causing them to float away from the group and become less active, she said. Several organizations were working together to care for the whales. About 10 people monitored them around the clock and one person was assigned to each whale to watch it constantly. The whales are being fed fish smoothies through a feeding tube every four hours. Wildlife experts believe the youngest whale a female under the age of 2 was still nursing. Her mother did not survive. The baby is swimming around the group, calling and whistling for the mother, so were working to become the mom, said Stephen McCulloch, Harbor Branch program manager. Experts are teaching her to drink formula from a bottle. Davis said it was not clear why the whale pod stranded at Avalon Beach State Park in St. Lucie County. Allison Garrett, a spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations fisheries service, said its possible one of the animals became sick and the rest of the pod followed it onshore. They wont leave (a sick whale). Theyll stay together, she said. The five survivors have only minor injuries and scrapes. The goal was to get the five whales strong enough to survive a roughly two-hour trip to their new home at SeaWorld, which could take about a week. Davis said she did not know how long it would be before the whales could be released back to the ocean. Until they get better, the whales will rehabilitate together in a pool. Associated Press People attend to one of five rescued pilot whales Sunday at Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch Institute in Fort Pierce. SHEMIR WILES /Chronicle Volunteer Wanda McKeever grabs a box of macaroni and cheese off the pantry shelf to place in a food bag Friday at Daystar Life Center in Crystal River. Daystar is one of the 19 agencies that will feel the changes as the United Way of Citrus County moves toward more grant-style funding. Change for charities S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterFor more than two decades, the United Way of Citrus County has served as a perpetual guiding light for agencies and individuals seeking to improve the lives of those in the community. But the past few years and looking into the future the organization has sought to refine and refocus its approach. Were taking it to a whole new level, said Amy Meek, United Way of Citrus County executive director. United Way Worldwide identified some of the fundamental building blocks for successful, fulfilling lives. In Citrus, Meek said, those blocks were broken down into three key areas of social interest education, income and health. Locally, Meek said the United Way has been digging deep to try to tackle the causes of some of the social needs instead of slapping on a proverbial Band-Aid. In the next five to 10 years, we want to see the needle move, she said. One way the United Way is initiating increased accountability is changing how it provides funding to the 19 local agencies it supports. Were phasing out just straight allocations and switching to grantstyle funding, she said. With this new method, the agencies can set goals, project outcomes and rally in one direction. There will be a way to measure if a particular program is having a true impact in the community, Meek explained. Its about getting to the root of a problem and helping change lives. Its not enough to just throw money at an issue, she added. The Band-Aids arent enough. Its not helping, she said. We need to strategically help people. Denise Kennard, executive director of Daystar Life Center in Crystal River, said with change there is a bit of apprehension, but she believes it could improve the way Daystar displays its agency. I see some positives, she said. In the meantime, Kennard said Daystar will continue to do what it can with applying for funding and helping those in need in the community. Joanna Castle, executive director of the YMCA of Citrus County, said her agency is quite familiar with the grant process and believes the funding change is great. Castle said she believes it will help the local United Way provide focus and measure how its partner agencies truly better lives. We embrace the change here at the Y, she said. Maureen Tambasco, executive director of Citrus Hearing Impaired Program Services (CHIPS), said the transition in funding in Citrus has been smooth and as it proceeds, she believes it will help agencies have more goals in mind. While some may just want to get a check, Tambasco said the new funding style would help determine what programs truly enrich peoples lives and what doesnt work.

CERT training offered Special to the ChronicleThose interested in helping neighbors following a disastrous event are encouraged to consider joining the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The program is presented free of charge, in cooperation with the Citrus Sheriff Fire Rescue Division, Citrus County Health Department, Nature Coast Emergency Medical Services and Progress Energy. The second CERT training session of 2012 is set to begin Sept. 5 at the Sheriffs Office Emergency Operations Center, 3549 Saunders Way (off County Road 491), Lecanto. There is no charge to attend. Eight consecutive weekly classes are scheduled for Wednesday nights: Sept. 5, 12, 19 and 26, plus Oct. 3, 10, 17 and 24. Each session runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and targets such topics as disaster preparedness, team organization, fire safety, triage and treatment of life-threatening injuries, disaster psychology, terrorism awareness, light search and rescue, and more. SKYWARN is another community-based program sponsored by the National Weather Service, in conjunction with the Sheriffs Office Emergency Management Section. By building networks of volunteer spotters to report severe local weather to NWS, the program helps to save lives, reduce injuries and mitigate property damage from lifethreatening storms. New spotters are trained in the last class of the CERT training session to report critical, life-saving information about tornadoes, hail, high winds and flooding. Only the Sept. 12 class will be at a different location than the EOC. The fire safety portion of the CERT training session is scheduled for the Citrus County Fire Training Center at 1300 S. Lecanto Highway, Building 26, also nearby in Lecanto. Because class size is limited, pre-registration is required. CERT trainees must attend all eight evenings of instruction in order to receive their certificate of training. Visit the sheriffs office website at www.sheriff citrus.org, and print out the CERT volunteer application from the Emergency Management tab. Then either mail it in or drop it off at the EOC as soon as possible. For more information, contact Bob Wesch, deputy director of emergency management, by emailing him at email@example.com, or calling him at 352249-2708. Second Sunshine complaint for port C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterIn the wake of county commissioners launching the concept of Port Citrus nearly 18 months ago, an Inverness man has filed several legal complaints about the way the project has been maneuvered. Last week, Robert Schweickert Jr. added a second legal challenge alleging Sunshine Law violation to the project to build a niche port in the former Cross Florida Barge Canal in the northwest area of the county. In May 2011, Schweickert alleged commissioners violated the Sunshine Law in the way they met individually with a Tampa attorney and contracted with a Tallahassee lobbyist to get Port Citrus named in legislation. That complaint was dismissed in May 2012. The latest case alleges the Sunshine Law was violated in the way a consultant firm, John C. Martin Associates LLC, was selected to conduct a feasibility study for Port Citrus. Schweickert argues the team that ranked applicants to recommend to the port authority should have met in public for the process. Furthermore, when port authority board members marked ballots to choose a firm, the lawsuit alleges another Sunshine Law violation took place because the votes were not disclosed during the meeting. In December 2011, Schweickert challenged the constitutionality of an amendment to Chapter 311 of Florida Statutes to identify Port Citrus as the states 15th deepwater port and authorize a feasibility study. This challenge is awaiting adjudication. Schweickert also has filed lawsuits claiming the county on more than one occasion ignored his requests for public records. These have been resolved or settled out of court. The case, 2012 CA 1339 A, has been posted on the clerk of courts website.

Officials capture big python in Keys MARATHON Officials have captured an 11-foot python after it slithered across a busy highway in the Florida Keys. Monroe County Sheriffs Deputy Bryan Cross spotted the reptile Friday as it crossed the Overseas Highway. He followed the snake into a heavily wooded lot and called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Sun Sentinel reported that officers captured the snake without incident. Officials believe the snake is not an escaped pet but one in a growing population of feral exotics in the area. The python was turned over to the U.S. Coast Guard. 2 Fantasy 5 players to share $136,168TALLAHASSEE Two winners of the Fantasy 5 game will collect $136,168.74 each, the Florida Lottery said Sunday.

Endangered turtle rehabs in KeysMARATHON A veterinarian said Sunday an egg-laden hawksbill sea turtle, airlifted from the U.S. Virgin Islands to the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital, is in extremely guarded condition. Dr. Doug Mader treated the 123-pound turtle Sunday. He said an ultrasound revealed more than 100 eggs, many of which were viable, although he could not confirm if they were fertile. Mader stressed the turtles condition was grave, but said he and other staff would do all they could to keep it alive because hawksbills are rare and classified as endangered. Mader said he ultimately hopes to return the turtle and any hatchlings to St. Croix.

B12 State BRIEFS New regulations in free tutoring program Apply by Sept. 5 Special to the ChronicleSupplemental Education Services (SES) tutoring is not new to Citrus County, but this years new state regulations give parents who have been ineligible a chance to receive help for their children. In past years, students had to receive freeor reduced-priced lunch and attend a public Title 1 school in need of restructuring in order to qualify. This year, students will be eligible as long as they scored a level one or a level two on their 2012 FCAT 2.0 and attend a public Title 1 school which is every elementary and primary school in Citrus County, as well as a the Renaissance Center. The change is very exciting for us, said Audra Coats-Hudson, SES coordinator for After School Programs, a nonprofit tutoring company that has been providing free tutoring to parents through SES for the past two years in Citrus County. Every year we have parents who want to get into the program but do not meet the income requirements; now they will be able to get help as well. The funding for SES comes from each districts government-allocated Title 1 funds and is paid to approved tutoring companies by the school board, which makes it free to parents. Parents can choose from dozens of providers in Citrus County who tutor in math or reading. Its great that parents have a good selection of companies but it can be hard to narrow it down, Coats-Hudson said. After School Programs is one of the few companies that was founded by educators and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, so that helps us stand out. According to the Florida Department of Educations (FDOE) website, 34 percent of third-graders scored a level one or two on the 2012 FCAT 2.0 in reading, while 36 percent of third-graders scored a level one or two in math. Among fourth-graders, 30 percent scored below a level three on reading and 32 percent scored below a level three in math. Percentages for fifthand sixth-grade students were similar, with 30 percent of fifth-graders scoring below level three in reading and 33 percent in math, while 37 percent of sixthgrader readers and 41 percent of math students scored below level three. While the new regulations allow a wider variety of students to participate, less funds this year means fewer students will actually be served; there are only 500 slots this year. If parental requests for free tutoring exceed the amount of funding available, the school district will prioritize services as it sees fit. Neither the FDOE nor the Citrus County School District promote or endorse any particular SES provider, so parents must decide for themselves which company they want to use. The initial registration for tutoring ends Sept. 5. Forms are mailed to parents of eligible students, or they may be picked up at the front office of eligible schools. Once the program is full, students will be placed on a waiting list, so parents are encouraged to sign up as soon as they can. For more information about SES tutoring with After School Programs, contact Audra Coats-Hudson, 352-229-2535, or firstname.lastname@example.org. From wire reports

O PINION Page A6 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 Affordable Care ActThe Small Business Majority represents 8,000 small-business owners nationwide. When it examined health insurance issues, it recognized the existing system was completely broken. They found the Affordable Care Act to have many advantages for small business. The health insurance exchanges will give small businesses the same bargaining power as big business. Small businesses now pay 18 percent more than big businesses for the same coverage. Getting everyone into the system is a cost containment, because now we are paying for people who use the system but arent paying for it. Another cost savings is health care organizations must expend 80 percent to 85 percent of premiums on patient care. This year, those companies are refunding several million dollars to customers, which wasnt spent on patient care. The Small Business Majority found the Affordable Care law to be a huge step in the right direction. They didnt see any downside. The employer responsibility provisions that require businesses with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance only affects 4 percent of all business and the vast majority already offer heath coverage. The Congressional Budget Office has determined the Affordable Health Act will also stop the huge cost escalation that has been experienced for years. Isnt it surprising that Gov. Romney finds the Affordable Care law so terrible even though it closely resembles the health care act he signed into law in Massachusetts? Stan Clewett Homosassa Dont give upLast year I could not walk, had tremors, dizziness and loss of balance. Doctors treated me for Parkinsons disease. My primary doctor, Dr. Beana Stanley, had her doubts about this and sent me to the Parkinsons Clinic at the University of South Florida in Tampa to see Dr. R. Hauser, head of the department. After several hours of testing, he said I did not have Parkinsons and took me off several medications that could cause my problems. I then saw Dr. Lawson, neural surgeon at Shands hospital, and he told me I also needed physical therapy. After eight weeks with Dr. Guya Gurnani and therapists Lisa and Kristin at Nature Coast, I have balance and can walk without a cane. My advice to anyone with health problems, especially senior citizens, is dont give up. Keep talking to your doctors and follow their instructions. Insist on getting better; do a lot of praying. I would like to thank all the doctors, therapists and people at the First Presbyterian Church of Inverness for their concern and prayers. Without them I could not have done it. Harry Hershey Hernando L ord help us, theyre talking race again. They meaning Republicans and Democrats. Race is a critical, sensitive and sometimes painful issue with relevance to everything from environmental policy to education reform to criminal justice to media to health care. For a politician to address it requires political courage. Thats why politicians do not address it. Usually. That changes during political season when a given pol calculates that breaking his customary silence might net some tactical advantage. Which is how we come to find Newt Gingrich last week on MSNBC piously lamenting how racist is the networks Chris Matthews. The former House speaker displayed this previously unknown concern about racial misbehavior while defending himself against charges of same. It seems Matthews had the temerity to suggest that Gingrich, in calling Barack Obama a food stamp president during the GOP primary, had engaged in dogwhistle politics designed to rouse the racial resentments of white working-class voters. Gingrich was shocked shocked! at the notion. Why do you assume food stamp refers to black? he asked. What kind of racist thinking do you have? It is apparently news to Gingrich that politicians sometimes speak in code, that when, for instance, Ronald Reagan referenced his made-up welfare queens he was really promising white voters hed make those lazy blacks get up off their behinds and work. There was a study in the s in which people had to envision a drug user, then describe the person they had envisioned. Ninety-five percent envisioned someone black. This, even though only about 15 percent of drug users actually are black. The point being that in the public mind, certain terms urban, poverty, crime carry racial weight, often at odds with reality. They are ways of saying black without saying black. The idea that Gingrich a 69year-old career politician does not know this, or realize that food stamp president is such a term, strains credulity. If hes really that much of a naif, let us hope no one has told him the truth about the Tooth Fairy. It would break the poor mans heart. Where race is concerned, Newt Gingrich is a disingenuous hypocrite. And Joe Biden is just a fool. Did the vice president really tell a largely black audience two weeks back that if Mitt Romney is elected, the GOP will put yall back in chains. Yall? Really? A slavery joke? Really? Lord, have mercy. Why didnt Biden just show up with his pants sagging while gnawing a chicken bone? It couldnt have been any less subtle. There are what? 14, 15 black Republicans in this country? So Gingrich is offending voters his party does not have. But Biden is pandering clumsily to voters his party does have and routinely ignores until just before Election Day. Black voters do not need to hear Biden say yall any more than they needed, in 2006, to hear Hillary Clinton accuse the GOP of running a plantation. What they we need is for the left and right to stop using us like hardware. What we need is for would-be leaders to approach us with agendas tailored to our concerns. Talk about how youre going to bring investment to the inner city. Talk about ending the mass incarceration of young black men under the failed War on Drugs. Talk about job training. Talk about restoring the voting rights of ex-felons. Talk about fixing schools. Do those things and you wont have to say yall. But of course, thats too much to ask. So instead, we get Gingrichs dewy-eyed innocent act and Bidens linguistic blackface, the same old buck and wing of cynicism, opportunism and nonsense. It turns out theres actually one thing more aggravating than politicians who dont talk about race. Thats politicians who do.

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 HERE TO SERVE Facility enhances mission T he Salvation Army of Citrus County recently moved into its new location a spacious 16,000square-foot Center for Worship and Service off State Road 44. The new location will house all Salvation Army services, including food bank, life-enrichment classes, teen activities and host of other programs. This change coincides with an expansion of the Salvation Armys mission moving from a group that reacts to disasters to one that offers a host of outreach services. One additional opportunity the change affords is that it partially meets a growing need in the county shelter for the homeless. The multi-use facility includes a commercial kitchen that can double as a homeless shelter in the winter when temperatures drop below 40 degrees. In Citrus County, there are an estimated 1,024 individuals of varying ages who are homeless. Some are chronically homeless and find comfort in staying at shelters or pitching a tent in the woods. While employment and the development of life skills are whats needed in the greater scheme of things, the homeless deserve the opportunity to have shelter and a feeling of security. The county currently has no coordinated plan for dealing with the homeless, nor does it have a lead agency stepping forward. With this expansion, we look forward to the Salvation Army taking on more of a leadership role in providing immediate and long-term services to address homelessness. The expansion of the Salvation Army of Citrus County has the capacity to help the countys most vulnerable and we welcome it with open arms. THE ISSUE: Salvation Army expands mission.OUR OPINION: Expansion will benefit county.

(U.S.) 19 is bad enough in a car. Dodging a horse and buggy on the road would be a big mistake. And whos going to clean up their mess? Break water rulesDont ever tell me to conserve water when they give the right to tap several thousands gallons of water out of the ground so they can bottle it and take it someplace else and sell it. Never tell us that again. Why bother? Heres how you can tell which politicians are going to do a good job and which ones are going to sit around doing as little as possible: Those who take their signs down within the first week after the election will work the same way. Theyll be on the ball and try to get things done ASAP Then there are those who leave their signs up for weeks or months after the election. Those are the ones who could care less about the people or what they can do for them. So take notice and let it help you decide who to vote for and who not to vote for.Editors note:According to the Citrus County Land Development Code, section 9210.L.3: Signs relating to individuals who are unsuccessful in any election shall be removed within seven days of their last election date. and 9210.L.4: All other political signs shall be removed within seven days following the date of the general (or last) election.

Kitten hitches ride on gas tank ROCHESTER, N.Y. A kitten that hitched a six-hour ride from Connecticut to western New York curled up on top of a cars gas tank will be put up for adoption. The cat was found by workers at Smittys Transmissions in suburban Rochester when a Connecticut couple brought in their car after dropping their son off at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The couple had heard the cat purring. The Democrat & Chronicle of Rochester reported Sunday that workers found the kitten curled in a tiny alcove above the gas tank. They named the cat Connecticut. The kitten was taken to Lollypop Farm, a shelter that takes in foster kittens, until she puts on enough weight to be spayed and adopted. Shelter workers believe the hitching kitten was feral. Woman gets four arrests in 26 hoursEPPING, N.H. Authorities say a New Hampshire woman has been arrested four times in 26 hours for blasting the AC/DC song Highway to Hell and other loud music from her home and for throwing a frying pan. Police first issued a warning to Joyce Coffey on Tuesday afternoon at her home in Epping. They said they were called back an hour later and arrested her for the loud music. Police said Coffey was arrested again five hours later. She was released and arrested again before dawn Wednesday over more loud music. Police arrested her again after her nephew said he tried to remove some of his belongings from her house and she threw a frying pan at him. Coffey was jailed Friday and couldnt be reached for comment. WMUR-TV reported a judge has recommended she use headphones. Fake coyotes vs. birds at beachHOWELL, Mich. A Michigan community thats fed up with geese fouling up a beach is hoping fake coyotes encourage the birds to land elsewhere. The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell and WHMI-FM reported the beach on Thompson Lake at Howell City Park is expected to be closed for the rest of the summer swimming season because of elevated E. coli levels. The beach was shut down this month, and goose poop is blamed. Debbie Mikula is director of the Howell Area Parks and Recreation Authority. She said the fake coyotes have shown some success in keeping the birds away. Theyre being moved at night to trick the geese into thinking theyre real. The hope is that the beach, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit, will reopen next year. Transportation is planning to widen U.S. 41 and include turning lanes onto C.R. 48. Years ago, FDOT proposed a similar widening project, but after opposition from residents, the idea was shelved. It appears its been taken off the shelf. Thats good news for some, bad news for others. For Marcia and Allen Beasley, its something they had been advocating for years. Marcia Beasley is a longtime member of the Floral City Heritage Council. Were delighted, Mrs. Beasley said. Originally, FDOT had planned to make that part of U.S. 41 a four-lane highway, which many Floral City residents opposed, including the Beasleys and fellow heritage council member Tom Ritchie. My husband and Tom went to the DOT and said, We just need a turning lane; thats all thats needed, Mrs. Beasley said. Assistant County Administrator Ken Frink said in an email to Mrs. Beasley: We asked and they listened! FDOT is planning on the turn lane as part of the resurfacing project on U.S. 41. Mrs. Beasley said the only drawback is the project will impact several local busi nesses at the intersection. But overall, it will prevent the four-laning of that area, she said. Pam Bellman, president of the Floral City Merchants Association, said a turn lane is important and needed, but shes concerned about the impact of local businesses in the immediate area. Its going to put me out of business, said Connie Jones, owner of Connies Kickstand at the northeast corner of the intersection. For the past three years, Jones customers have used the right of way in front of her shop as a parking area, which, she said, isnt enough as it is. I know the state owns (the property), but that doesnt make it any easier for me, she said. This will close me down. Across from Connies Kickstand on C.R. 48 sits Reborn Auto Center, owned by Scott Mitchelltree, who has a copy of the FDOT plans. On my side theyre only taking 4 or 5 feet, which we dont use anyhow, so I dont think it will affect us at all, he said. Mitchelltree said the intersection is infamous for drivers turning onto C.R. 48 in front of oncoming traffic. He said this will make the area safer, and it will look nicer when finished. The project is scheduled for 2013. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927. Ive got a great group of woman I work with. Im really blessed, and theyre all over the United States, Johnson said about her unit reaching the $96,000 goal in just three months. Mary Kay pays for every one of these symbolic cars. I havent made a car payment in 16 years, Johnson said. Unfortunately, Johnson doesnt get to keep the 15 previous career cars that she has acquired over the past 37 years as a Mary Kay employee. Before Johnson worked at Mary Kay in 1975, she was teacher in Minnesota, commuting 80 miles a day. A friend introduced Johnson to the idea of becoming a saleswoman, which would give her the chance to work at home and stay with her children. I had a friend who started with Mary Kay who said this might be something Id be interested in, Johnson said. I was looking at an opportunity to become an athome mom, but Mary Kays philosophy has always been faith first, family second and career third. The companys built on that golden rule and that always appealed to me. Johnsons first car was a Buick, and the emotions of owning her 16th are just the same as with the first. Oh my gosh, it was amazing, she said. Im just like a little kid in a candy store. In addition to the Cadillac, Johnson, along with her husband, Roger, will travel to Monte Carlo, Monaco, this month as a reward for reaching the Circle of Excellence by selling up to $650,000 worth of product. The FedEx package came the other day, and let me tell you I was standing on my head, Johnson said. Johnson loves her career and will keep going for more cars, more trips and more success. You never lose your excitement, Johnson said. Ill work as long as I can do it; theres no age limit. I can do it until Im a 110. church-owned hospital near his home in Gapyeong, northeast of Seoul, two weeks after being hospitalized with pneumonia, Unification Church spokesman Ahn Ho-yeul told The Associated Press. Moons wife and children were at his side, Ahn said. He was 92. Church officials planned to meet later Monday to discuss mourning and funeral arrangements. Moon founded his Biblebased religion in Seoul in 1954, a year after the Korean War ended, saying Jesus Christ personally called on him to complete his work. The church gained fame and notoriety by marrying thousands of followers in mass ceremonies presided over by Moon himself. The couples often came from different countries and had never met, but were matched up by Moon in a bid to build a multicultural religious world. Today, the Unification Church claims 3 million followers worldwide, including 100,000 members in the U.S., Ahn said. But exmembers and critics say the figure is actually no more than 100,000 worldwide. The churchs holdings included the Washington Times newspaper; Connecticuts Bridgeport University; the New Yorker Hotel, a midtown Manhattan art deco landmark, and a seafood distribution firm that supplies sushi to Japanese restaurants across the U.S. It acquired a ski resort, a professional football team and other businesses in South Korea. It also operates a foreign-owned luxury hotel in North Korea and jointly operates a fledgling North Korean automaker. The church has been accused of using devious recruitment tactics and duping followers out of money. Parents of followers in the United States and elsewhere have expressed worries that their children were brainwashed into joining. The church has pointed out that many new religious movements faced similar accusations in their early years. Moons followers were often called Moonies, a term many found pejorative. Born in 1920 in a rural part of what is today North Korea, Moon said he was 16 when Jesus Christ first appeared to him and told him to finish the work he had begun on Earth 2,000 years earlier. Moon, who tried to preach the gospel in the North, was imprisoned there in the late 1940s for allegedly spying for South Korea; he disputed the charge. When the Korean War broke out in 1950, he fled to South Korea. After divorcing his first wife, he married Hak Ja Han Moon in 1960. They have 10 surviving sons and daughters, according to the church. In South Korea, Moon quickly drew young acolytes to his conservative, familyoriented value system and unusual interpretation of the Bible. He conducted his first mass wedding in Seoul in the early 1960s, and the blessing ceremonies grew in scale over the years. A 1982 wedding at New Yorks Madison Square Garden the first outside South Korea drew thousands of participants. International and intercultural marriages are the quickest way to bring about an ideal world of peace, Moon said in a 2009 autobiography. People should marry across national and cultural boundaries with people from countries they consider to be their enemies so that the world of peace can come that much more quickly.C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, S EPTEMBER 3, 2012 A7 KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS 352/746-6921 Located County Rd. 486 & Pine Cone Lecanto, FL (1/2 Mile East of County Rd. 491) 000CAPD WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY Doors Open 4:30 PM Games Start 6:00 PM PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT ALL PAPER BINGO PRIZES $ 50 TO $ 250 WINNER TAKES ALL POT-O-GO LD Smoke-Free Environment FREE Coffee & Tea TV Monitors for Your Convenience ~ Sandwiches & Snacks ~ OUR LADY OF FATIMA CHURCH 550 U.S. HWY. 41 SOUTH, INVERNESS, FL TUESDAY AT NOON & THURSDAY AT 6:30PM $10 Package (Includes Jackpots) $5 Speed Package 000A6ES New: STINGER JACKPOT SPECIAL Progressive Bingo, increases weekly, with a maximum payout of $1199 8 speed games . . . . . . . $50 payout 18 regular games . . . . . $50 payout 2 Jackpots . . . . . . . . . . . $150 and $200 50/50 game Winner take all (If attendance is less than 100, prizes may be reduced) Blackshears II Aluminum 795-9722 Free Estimates www.blackshears.com Licensed & Insured RR 0042388 Years As Your Hometown Dealer RESCREEN SEAMLESS GUTTERS GARAGE SCREENS NEW SCREEN ROOM GLASS ROOM CONVERSIONS 000CH4L HWY. 44 CRYSTAL RIVER 000CH55 000CEEX FREE COFFEE & HOT TEA Refreshments Served at a Nominal Cost both Mon. & Thurs.

Associated PressBEIRUT Activist groups said Sunday that about 5,000 people were killed in Syrias civil war in August, the highest figure ever reported in more than 17 months of fighting as President Bashar Assads regime unleashed crushing air power against the revolt for the first time. The U.N. childrens fund UNICEF put the death toll for last week alone at 1,600, the largest weekly figure for the entire uprising. The past month witnessed large massacres and the regime was conducting wide operations to try to crush the uprising, said Omar Idilbi, a Cairo-based activist with the Local Coordination Committees group. Last months acts of violence were unprecedented. He said the increased use of the air force and artillery bombardments was behind the spike in casualties. The civil war witnessed a major turning point in August when Assads forces began widely using air power for the first time to try to put down the revolt. The fighting also reached Syrias largest city, Aleppo, which had been relatively quiet for most of the uprising. The Britain-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 5,440 people, including 4,114 civilians were killed in August. The LCC put the toll at 4,933 civilians. On Sunday, the Observatory and the LCC said more than 100 people were killed throughout Syria and the groups have been reporting 100-250 deaths per day over the past week. Syrias uprising has been the bloodiest in the Arab Spring that has already removed long-serving authoritarian leaders in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and Libya. The two main activists groups also released new death tolls for the entire uprising since March 2011. The Observatory said more than 26,000 have been killed, including more than 18,500 civilians. The LCC put the death toll at more than 23,000 civilians. The LCC does not count members of the military who are killed, but the Observatory does. That averages out to about 1,3001,500 deaths per month, making the August figure more than three times higher than average. The groups had previously reported a toll of around 20,000 more than a month ago. On Thursday, Human Rights Watch said government forces have killed scores of civilians over the past three weeks by bombarding at least 10 areas where they were lining up to buy bread at bakeries near and around Aleppo. Last week, activists reported that between 300 and 600 people were killed in the Damascus suburb of Daraya during days of shelling and a killing spree by troops who stormed the town after heavy fighting. The reason behind the high death toll is military operations, shelling, clashes and air raids, said Rami Abdul-Rahman who heads the Observatory. I would say most people are being killed during clashes and executions. UNICEF spokesman Patrick McCormick said 1,600 were killed last week alone, including some children. Associated PressOMAHA, Neb. Wildfires in northwestern Nebraska tripled in size in less than 24 hours, as strong winds pushed flames through the rugged, rural terrain. More than 285 square miles an area more than twice the size of the states largest city, Omaha had burned by Sunday afternoon, fire officials said. One of the fires had crossed into South Dakota this weekend and burned more than 50 square miles, including land on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. A day earlier, the fires had only burned roughly 93 square miles in the ranching territory thats favored by deer and turkey hunters. Weve got a very challenging situation out here because of the winds and the very dry conditions, Gov. Dave Heineman said Sunday after touring the damage and meeting with officials. Cooler weather moved through the area Saturday night, helping firefighters mostly contain two major fires the West Ash and Douthit fires near Chadron. But winds gusted up to 40 mph Sunday, helping spread the fires through drought-stricken trees and grasses. The Wellnitz fire, north of Rushville, broke through containment lines Sunday, Heineman said. The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency said it had burned roughly 150 square miles by Sunday evening. Heineman said it will likely take several more days to fully contain the fires, but he says firefighters appear to have all the resources they need to do that. Overall, the fires have destroyed at least one home in Nebraska and one in South Dakota and forced the evacuation of several small communities. Residents of the small town of Whitney, southwest of Chadron, were allowed to return home Sunday. Rushville Assistant Fire Chief Jerry Kearns said Sunday firefighters were working hard to contain the fires and protect property, but they sometimes have to make difficult choices. Kearns said its hard to watch a ranchers hay burn because of this summers ongoing drought. The Douthit fire is nearly contained, but it burned about 30,000 acres. The other fire in the area, the West Ash fire, had consumed nearly 58,000 acres by Sunday and was about half contained. Aftermath Associated Press Lovey, a cat belonging to Don Duplantier, meows Sunday from its kennel in a pirogue brought to transport him from his flooded home in Braithwaite, La., in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac. Days after Isaac, flooding remainsNEW ORLEANS Floodwater lingered in Plaquemines Parish, more than 240,000 electricity customers sweltered without power and officials north of Lake Pontchartrain kept a wary eye on waterways swollen by Hurricane Isaac. The storm made landfall Tuesday, but residents are still suffering days later. Much of New Orleans had electricity, but work crews continued to deal with toppled trees and downed power lines. North of Lake Pontchartrain, a mandatory evacuation near the Bush community was dialed back to a voluntary evacuation after authorities stabilized a lock on the Pearl River Diversion Canal. But officials said the West Pearl River was in danger of flooding. Criticism Associated Press Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in fighting apartheid, speaks Feb. 10 during a felicitation event for him in Dharmsala, India. Tutu in an op-ed piece in the Observer Sunday called for Tony Blair and George Bush to appear before an international criminal court and delivered a damning critique of the physical and moral devastation caused by the Iraq war. S. Africa to drop murder chargesJOHANNESBURG South Africas top prosecutor announced Sunday that she is withdrawing controversial murder charges against 270 miners for the killings of 34 striking co-workers shot dead by police. The National Union of Metal Workers meanwhile demanded the suspension of the officers responsible for the shootings. Sundays announcement follows a barrage of criticism from political parties, trade unions, civil society and legal experts. Even the justice minister had challenged the prosecutors decision to charge the arrested miners under an apartheid-era law that opened President Jacob Zumas government to accusations that it was acting like the former brutal white rulers. Nomqcobo Jiba, the acting director of public prosecutions, did not say why she had reversed her decision to shift the blame from the police to the miners. The murder charge against the current 270 suspects ... will be formally withdrawn, she told a news conference.

Activists say 5,000 killed in Syria in August Associated PressDETROIT A man suspected of fatally shooting two men and seriously wounding two others had to turn himself in twice before Detroit police would arrest him, authorities said. Detroit police said the 36year-old man got into an argument at a party on Saturday, retrieved a gun and opened fire. Four people were shot, and two died. The man turned himself in at a fire station about two hours later, and fire officials called police, but no officers turned up. Police said in a statement that due to area patrol units being busy handling high priority runs, no units were dispatched to the location. The man eventually went to a police station, where he was arrested. Police Chief Ralph Godbee said he has ordered an investigation into why no patrol car was sent to the fire station. Police should have made every effort to ensure that this person was taken into custody, he said in the statement sent late Saturday by the department. Police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens told The Associated Press on Sunday that the department would examine what police units were doing at the time the suspect tried to surrender, including whether they might have been involved in other aspects of the shooting investigation. Police did not immediately release the name of the suspect or the victims or provide details on the shooting investigation. They said the men who were shot ranged in age from 19 to 37. Detroit police have undergone serious personnel cuts under Mayor Dave Bings state-supervised effort to close a large budget deficit and avoid a state financial takeover. The city recently imposed a 10 percent pay cut and 12-hour work day for officers. Stephens said the police department wouldnt immediately comment on the adequacy of its staffing.

Jones-Drew arrived at the facility Sunday morning and chatted with teammates before meeting with coaches. Just shared some love with @Jones_Drew32 in the locker room, Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings posted on his Twitter page. Glad to see you back Lets work brah! The NFLs leading rusher in 2011, JonesDrew skipped the teams entire offseason in a nasty contract dispute. With coach Mike Mularkey able to fine him up to $30,000 a day plus $60,000 for a three-day, mandatory minicamp Jones-Drew could be out $1.2 million this season. He is scheduled to make $4.45 million in 2012 and $4.95 million next year. Jones-Drew wanted to renegotiate the final two years of a five-year, $31 million deal. Owner Shad Khan and general manager Gene Smith refused. Coming off a career year, Jones-Drew wants to be one of the NFLs highest-paid backs. His average salary per year ranks behind Minnesotas Adrian Peterson, Tennessees Chris Johnson, Philadelphias LeSean McCoy, Houstons Arian Foster, St. Louis Steven Jackson, Carolinas DeAngelo Williams and Seattles Marshawn Lynch.Substitute refs raising concerns as NFL season looms The NFL is poised to begin the regular season with replacement referees. With no agreement with its locked-out referee union, the league is planning to use fill-ins for at least the first week of games. Many of them are used to smallcollege officiating, so the transition is tough. Mistakes have punctuated otherwiseunimportant exhibition games. Questions about safety and quality probably will persist until the NFL and the regular refs reach a new collective bargaining agreement. Cowboys Witten, Jenkins unsure about status IRVING, Texas Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten wont know until Tuesday if he will be cleared to play in the season opener. Witten is set to have a CT scan before the team leaves for New York to determine if his lacerated spleen is healed. Owner Jerry Jones says that scan probably will dictate if the seven-time Pro Bowl tight end gets to play against the Giants on Wednesday night. Witten had limited participation in practice Sunday, but says hes doing everything he can to be ready to play if hes cleared. Also Sunday, cornerback Mike Jenkins, a USF alumnus, practiced for the first time since shoulder surgery forced him to miss offseason workouts and training camp. Jenkins feels good, but isnt sure about his chances of playing.

Price (17-5) became the ALs top winner. Jered Weaver of the Angels was set to try for his 17th win later in the day. Carlos Pena also homered as the Rays won for only the third time in nine games, pulling within 3 1/2 games of the AL East-leading New York Yankees. The Yankees begin a three-game series at Tampa Bay on Monday. Price gave up two runs, six hits and four walks while striking out five in a rebound game after a rare bad outing in Texas, where he was tagged by the Rangers for six runs and 10 hits. The All-Star lefty is 9-1 in his last 14 starts overall and improved to 12-2 lifetime against Toronto. Blue Jays ace Ricky Romero (8-13) lost his 12th straight decision. He allowed a run in the first inning, then faced seven batters in the second and all of them reached base.

For late results from the U.S. Open, see Page B4 Associated PressNORTON, Mass. Louis Oosthuizen combined one of the sweetest swings in golf with a putting stroke that was just as pure. Thats all it took for him to race by Rory McIlroy, leave Tiger Woods behind and seize control Sunday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Oosthuizen ran off seven straight birdies. He shot a 29 on the front nine of the TPC Boston. And at one point, he went 19 consecutive holes without missing a green. One last birdie on the par-5 18th gave him an 8-under 63 and a three-shot lead over McIlroy going into the Labor Day finish. McIlroy, trying to match Woods with his third PGA Tour win this year, did well just to stay in range. The PGA Championship winner started the third round with a one-shot lead and had a 4-under 67, the kind of score that should keep him atop the leaderboard. Instead, he had to answer with four birdies on the back nine just to give himself a chance Monday. Louis put on a display out there, McIlroy. It was great to watch. Thats about all anyone could do.

D enny Hamlin won his second straight Sprint Cup race, holding off Jeff Gordon in a green-white-checkered finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday. Martin Truex Jr. appeared to be positioned for his first win since 2007 until Jamie McMurray smashed the wall on the front straightaway, bringing out a caution with three laps to go. The leaders went to pit road, and Hamlins crew got him back on the track first, just ahead of Truex. While Truex struggled to get up to speed on the restart, Hamlin pulled away with Gordon right on his bumper. The four-time Cup champion desperately needed a win to improve his chances of getting into the Chase, but couldnt get by Hamlin on the final lap.
B2 M ONDAY, S EPTEMBER 3, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. For No. 25 Louisville, playing a game it could boast about was just as important as bragging rights against instate rival Kentucky. The Cardinals succeeded on both counts Sunday. Jeremy Wright ran for 105 yards and three touchdowns and Louisville opened the game with three long scoring drives en route to a 32-14 victory against the Wildcats. That claimed the Governors Cup for the second year in a row while ending a three-game home losing streak to Kentucky. More memorable for Louisville was the thorough way it was achieved. The Cardinals moved the ball at will against the Wildcats, gaining 314 of their 466 yards in the first half thanks to touchdown drives of 99, 85 and 93 yards. Partial credit for that goes to a more experienced line that protected sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and created huge holes for the running game. Wright and fellow Senorise Perry did a lot on their own, too. Nearly a third of Wrights yards came on the opening drive as he gained 30 on eight carries and ran for the first of two 1-yard scores. He added a 14-yarder in the second quarter. Perry added 108 on 16 carries including a 47-yard TD that made it 15-7. The Cardinals had 141 yards rushing after those three TD drives, nearly 20 above last seasons 121.5 average per game that ranked 93rd nationally. Their contributions almost overshadowed Bridgewater, though not by much. Last years Big East Conference rookie of the year faced little pressure from Kentucky and ended up completing 10 of his first 11 passes and 19 of 21 overall for 232 yards to nine targets. Other than a 75-yard scoring drive that briefly brought Kentucky within 87 in the first quarter, the Wildcats offense found little room against a Cardinals defense that had sophomore quarterback Maxwell Smith covered in many facets. The sophomore completed 35-of-50 passes for 280 yards. Kentucky ran for 93 yards on 19 carries. Kentucky started promisingly, driving 34 yards to Louisvilles 41 before the drive stalled on consecutive passes that started slowly and gained little yardage. The Wildcats then forced the Cardinals to start from their 1 when Kai Dominguez fumbled a linedrive punt after being hit by Martarvius Neloms. Unfazed, Louisville mounted a 15-play, 99-yard scoring drive. Bridgewater got it started with consecutive passes to Damian Copeland and Andrell Smith for 40 yards and first down at their 42. Wright then went to work, capped the drive with a touchdown, and Will Stein followed with a 2-point conversion pass to defensive end Marcus Smith. Kentucky answered with a 14-play, 75-yard scoring drive led by Smith, beginning the season as the starter. He had time to hit several targets, mixing in a 5-yard keeper. That spread things enough for him to find a wide-open Scott Radcliff in the end zone for a 3yard TD that brought the Wildcats within a point.

Associated PressCRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland Richie Ramsay captured the biggest prize of his professional golf career on Sunday, three weeks before he returns to the scene of his greatest amateur triumph to get married. Ramsay shot a 5-under 66 to win the European Masters by four strokes. The 29year-old Scotsman was in control for most of the final round in the sun-bathed Swiss Alps and finished at 16-under 267. Four players tied for second. Its just incredible, the whole day went to plan, said Ramsay, who thought the win would move his career up a notch. It definitely pushes me to another level. Ramsay earned $440,000 for his second European Tour victory, following the South African Open title in 2009. The overnight leader put the victory above his triumph in the 2006 U.S. Amateur Championship, which he won in Hazeltine, Minn. Its a bigger win than the U.S. Amateur, said Ramsay, who is now based in Atlanta. If you look at the field and the place and the way that I did it. It was a timely victory, too. Ramsay is planning to marry Angela Hudinski on Sept. 21 at the Hazeltine club where they met during the tournament that launched his international reputation. Ramsay, who is set to move up the world rankings from No. 110 into the top 70, had never before led a tour event after 54 holes, and countryman Paul Lawrie was favored Sunday as he sought back-to-back victories after winning the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. Danny Willett of England, who played in the final threesome with Ramsay and Lawrie, grabbed a share of second. Fredrik Andersson Hed of Sweden, Marcus Fraser of Australia and Frances Romain Wattel also finished at 271. Mathias Gronberg had a hole-in-one at No. 3, sinking his 7-iron from 191 yards.

Virginia Tech is going back to its defense-first roots. For all the talk about quarterback Logan Thomas and his potential to be in the Heisman Trophy discussion, the No. 16 Hokies will rely on Bud Fosters defense first, starting with Monday nights season-opening game against ACC Coastal Division rival Georgia Tech and its explosive triple option. Tevin Washington, the Yellow Jackets dual-threat quarterback, is eager to put the Hokies to the test. Were ready to go, I think, he said. Guys are motivated. Weve been working all the offseason towards Sept. 3. We want to kick the season off right and come out and play with a lot of passion. The Hokies have nine starters back on defense, and expect to continue to have an answer for Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnsons offense. Virginia Tech has won two straight in the series, and three of four. Linebacker Jeron Gouviea-Winslow and the Hokies also are motivated to end a recent trend of losing big opening games to East Carolina in 2008, Alabama in 2009 and Boise State in 2010 in three of the last four seasons. They easily handled Appalachian State in last seasons opener, 66-13. The fact that Georgia Tech, twice, has been the only other team besides the Hokies to represent the division in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game only amps up the motivation further. Its the first game, and it is Georgia Tech, GouvieaWinslow said. Johnson was unwilling to say if, or how, Washington has improved before seeing him on the field this season, but the Hokies saw plenty last season. Washington ran for three TDs in the Hokies 37-26 victory. Hes going against a defense that finished in the top 10 last year, and from everything I read coming out of there they think its the best defense theyve ever had, Johnson said. If they are, theyre really good because theyve had some good ones. Well have a little better take on it after Monday night. On defense, Thomas figures to get most of the Yellow Jackets attention. The 6-foot-6, 260-pounder threw for three scores and ran for two in the game last season, and will be in the backfield with unproven tailbacks, flanked by receivers making their first starts and behind a line with four new starters. Hes a big, versatile, really good athlete, Johnson said, joking that the team should have used 6-6, 270pound defensive tackle Emmanuel Dieke to pose as Thomas on the scout team in practice this week. Thomas last season broke Tyrod Taylors school record for total offense in a season with 3,482 yards (3,013 passing with 19 TDs, 469 rushing with 11 TDs). But the Hokies finished with back-to-back losses, 3810 to Clemson in the ACC championship game and then 23-20 to Michigan State in the Sugar Bowl.

KEY MATCHUPVirginia Techs defense against the triple option. The Hokies have nine starters back on defense, with the only newcomers at the safety spots. PLAYERS TO WATCHGeorgia Tech: Tevin Washington. He was among the national leaders in rushing yards for a quarterback last season and ran for three TDs in a loss to the Hokies. He also ranked highly in passing efficiency despite completing fewer than 50 percent of his 150 attempts. Virginia Tech: Michael Holmes. The tailback drew good reviews for his work in the spring and summer, but has yet to have to show he can provide the kind of yardage the Hokies count on from their ground attack. From wire reports Associated PressBALTIMORE After a race that had a little bit of everything, Ryan HunterReay celebrated his perfect timing and a much-needed victory. Will Power cursed the weather and his awful luck. Hunter-Reay won the Grand Prix of Baltimore on Sunday, charging to the front on a controversial restart to keep alive his hopes of capturing the IndyCar Series championship. Power could have clinched the overall title with a second straight win in Baltimore on the 2.04mile street course that winds through the heart of the city. But the pole-sitter finished sixth in a race that drew nine caution flags, was marred by rain and had eight drivers drop out before the finish. Im still trying to catch my breath, Hunter-Reay said. Those restarts were crazy, crazy, crazy. The last restart came five laps from the conclusion of the 75-lap race. While frontrunner Ryan Briscoe was waiting for the green flag, Hunter-Reay caught sight of it and took off, moving from second to first. Briscoe claimed HunterReay jumped the gun, but race officials ruled otherwise. Everyone had been going late, Hunter-Reay explained. The green flags were coming out before the leaders were accelerating, and I caught wind of that. So I just started to focus on the green flag instead of the guy next to me. Briscoe got jumped on that one, but the green flag was flying and he was sitting there in first gear. Briscoe was second, rookie Simon Pagenaud finished third and Scott Dixon came in fourth. The victory put HunterReay within 17 points of Power, who failed to hold a late advantage in points in 2010 and 2011 and is in position for yet another collapse heading into the final race of the year, on the oval in Fontana, Calif., on Sept. 15. Hunter-Reay leads the series with four victories. He won three straight races on ovals at Milwaukee and Iowa and the street course in Toronto. Power fell out of the lead around the 20th lap to make a pit stop for a change to rain tires, a concession to the drizzle that pelted several sections of the track. The other top three cars opted to stay on slick tires, so HunterReay moved in front. The rain quickly subsided, so Power pitted on Lap 28 to change back to slicks. That pushed Power back to 17th, and although he eventually worked his way back into first, that advantage disappeared when he made his final pit stop. Every weekend, we are not just the quickest, but by a bunch, Power said. And circumstances seem to prevent us from winning. Today, we lost it with the weather. Briscoe insisted that the rules require that the drivers pair off while waiting for the green flag, and he said Hunter-Reay was intentionally lagging behind. I was honestly just waiting for him to pair up because he came off the chicane and he was hanging back, Briscoe said. He accelerated from two car-lengths back before I accelerated, and thats not how restarts work. That, however, is how they worked on this day. Definitely I jumped out and Im happy about it, Hunter-Reay said. And now, the pressure is on Power heading to the finale in California. Michael Andretti, owner of the team of which HunterReay is a member, said. I think we got them worried, and we should have them worried if hes not. We did exactly what we needed to do coming into this weekend.

Chris Sale (15-6) allowed four runs and five hits in six innings. Jose Valverde allowed a run in the ninth but held on for his 28th save in 32 chances.

Following Scott Hairstons pop out, Buehrle walked Ike Davis and hit Kelly Shoppach with a pitch to load the bases. Bay then drilled a 1-0 pitch into the right-center-field seats for his seventh home run. He went 2 for 4 and raised his average to .160 with 18 RBIs. Nationals 4, Cardinals 3WASHINGTON Stephen Strasburg allowed two hits over six scoreless innings, striking out nine before being pulled as the Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals.

Desmond Jennings singled to the exact same spot to make it 4-0. B.J. Uptons routine fly ball became a single when right fielder Moses Sierra lost the ball in the sun and let it drop. With the bases loaded, Ben Zobrist hit a two-run single that ended Romeros day. An RBI grounder by Jeff Keppinger put the Rays ahead 7-0. Price had some trouble of his own in the second inning when he loaded the bases with walks to Adam Lind, Yunel Escobar and Mike McCoy, but the Jays failed to capitalize. Pena sent the first pitch he saw in the third over the center-field wall for his 17th homer. Tampa Bay did more damage in the fourth when Evan Longoria hit a groundrule double, Keppinger singled and Francisco hit an RBI double. Edwin Encarnacion hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh and Lind had an RBI single that finished Price. RAYSContinued from Page B1 and was six shots behind, along with Dustin Johnson, who kept alive his hopes of being picked for the Ryder Cup with a 65. Oosthuizen has a on the left sleeve of his shirt, a reference to the score he once had at home in Mossel Bay along the Garden Route of South Africa. This felt similar, except that I was playing with friends and not in a big tournament like this one, Oosthuizen said. For a short time, it looked as though that personal record might be in jeopardy until he settled into a string of pars on the back nine. He dropped his lone shot on the 17th when he missed the green to the left and had to scramble for bogey. The 2010 British Open champion he won by seven shots at St. Andrews was at 19-under 194. Every putt had perfect speed, said Oosthuizen, who made four putts of at least 20 feet during his streak of birdies. I told Rory, Sorry, but youve got to take it when you can. The exchange they had on the 11th hole indicated what kind of performance this was. Oosthuizen covered the flag on one of the toughest par 3s at the TPC Boston, though the ball settled 20 feet behind the cup and he narrowly missed to end the streak. McIlroy followed with a beautiful swing of his own, a towering shot that drew gently and stopped 6 feet behind the cup for birdie. McIlroy waited at the back of the green for Oosthuizen to tap in for par, held out his arm and clinched his fist and said to him, Ive got the honors. They laughed, exchanged a high-five and McIlroy told him as they headed to the 12th tee, I feel like Ive got a chance. Woods was never in the picture, though he is not out of the hunt. He got off to a slow start, not picking up a birdie until the fifth hole, but came on late with back-toback birdies to stay in the game. Hell play the final round with Johnson, who twice made bogey with a 9iron in hand and still had eight birdies on the day. Keegan Bradley, who made the cut on the number, also had a 63 and while he wont be a factor at 13 shots behind, Bradley and Oosthuizen showed that it can be done. Six years ago, Woods shot 63 in the final round to beat Vijay Singh. Im going to have to put together one of those rounds, Woods said. It wont surprise me if somebody shoots 8or 9-under par tomorrow because of where the pin locations are. Somebody is going to go out there and do it. It may be early, it may be late, who knows? But hopefully, Im one of those guys. GOLF Continued from Page B1 In the fourth round Tuesday, the last American man to win a Grand Slam title will face 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, who needed six match points to defeat Leonardo Mayer 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (9). That 20-point tiebreaker included a backhand by Mayer that somehow ricocheted off the top of a net post and landed on the court. Also advancing: defending champion Novak Djokovic, a straight-set winner against No. 31 Julien Benneteau, and No. 4 David Ferrer, who got past twotime major champion Lleyton Hewitt 7-6 (9), 4-6, 6-3, 6-0. It was last Thursday, Roddicks 30th birthday, that he surprisingly let the world know he had decided to walk away from the sport whenever this visit to Flushing Meadows ends. Sunday just so happened to be five-time U.S. Open champion Connors 60th birthday and on the very same date in 1991, Connors celebrated his 39th by coming back to beat Aaron Krickstein in five sets to reach the quarterfinals in New York, a match replayed often during rain delays in more recent times. Connors, who briefly coached Roddick, was at his rabble-rousing, crowd-goading best on that day 21 years ago, and the pupil provided a more muted rendition this time. Fognini got in on the act, too, helping make things rather entertaining. Set aside that Fognini broke Roddick to end the third set and force a fourth. Fognini is a real character, too, and he conjured up one tremendous, full-sprint, back-to-the-net, betweenthe-legs shot; after Roddick replied with a stretch volley winner into the open court to end the point, Fognini chucked his racket all the way to the service box. There was more, including when Fognini stuck his mug right up against a TV camera after one point; requested instant-replay challenges of two faults on another (both serves were, indeed, out); and kept up a stream of sailor-language muttering in Italian. The 20th-seeded Roddick certainly wont be favored against No. 7 del Potro. But Roddick is into the fourth round for the ninth time in 13 appearances in the U.S. Open, and hes 8-0 so far. There were moments when Roddick appeared sluggish Sunday, and his big serve he once owned the record for fastest, at 155 mph wasnt always what it can be. Fognini, who at 5foot-10 is four inches shorter than Roddick, actually wound up with more aces, 15 to 10. But the key moment came in the second-set tiebreaker. Fognini took the first point; Roddick the rest. At 1-all, Roddick really came alive, as did the partisan crowd, when he smacked a winner and gestured vigorously. He followed that with a pair of aces at 126 mph and 131 mph and pretty much was on his way. There was the third-set blip, of course, but otherwise Roddick stayed steady, breaking Fognini twice in a row in the fourth and raising his clenched right fist overhead after going up 4-3. After Fognini missed a backhand return on match point, Roddick rolled his head back and raised both arms overhead, then swatted a ball into the stands. The pair of pals met at the net, and Fognini pulled Roddick in for a hug. Roddick answered the fans standing ovation with one of his own, clapping overhead while standing near the middle of the court. When he sat in his changeover chair, Roddick exhaled a couple of times, taking it all in. As Fognini strode past on his way back to the locker room, he paused to slap palms with Roddick. It doesnt really matter how much energy I have, Roddick said. You just keep going. Im going to give it my all here. OPEN Continued from Page B1
Obama a huge Eastwood fan WASHINGTON President Barack Obama said hes a huge Clint Eastwood fan, even in the aftermath of the actors rambling invisible Obama monologue at the GOP convention. Obama said in an interview with USA Today released Sunday the Academy Award-winning Eastwood is a great actor, and an even better director. But Obama was coy when asked if he was offended by the performance. Eastwood talked with an imaginary Obama in an empty chair before Mitt Romneys speech at the GOP convention, saying the president has failed to deliver on his promises. Obama said, if youre easily offended, you should probably choose another profession. The president joked on Twitter after Eastwoods appearance, tweeting that this seats taken, along with a photo of him in his chair at a Cabinet meeting.

Band: No regrets despite prison BERLIN Jailed Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova said she regrets nothing about the bands antigovernment performance in a cathedral that got them convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years behind bars. Tolokonnikova told Germanys Der Spiegel magazine in an interview released Sunday her conviction with her two band ates were Russian President Vladimir Putins personal revenge which served to put a global spotlight on his govern ment. She said, I think the bottom line is that the trial against us was important because it showed the true face of Putins system. D AVIDG ERMAIN AP Movie WriterLOS ANGELES Studio executives expected their biggest summer ever this year as they loaded their lineup with huge action movies and superhero franchises. What they got were two colossal blockbusters, a handful of backup hits and plenty of duds that just didnt deliver, resulting in what may prove the lowest summer movie attendance in 20 years. While domestic revenues are projected to come in as the secondbest ever, the number of tickets sold shrank to about 532 million from the first weekend in May through Labor Day, down 4 percent from summer 2011, according to boxoffice tracker Hollywood.com. If that holds by the time final ticket sales are counted through Monday, that would be the smallest audiences Hollywood has packed in for its busiest season dating back to 1993, the earliest summer revenue data maintained by Hollywood.com. Revenues should finish at $4.27 billion from the first weekend in May through Labor Day, down 3 percent from the record of $4.4 billion set last summer, said Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian. On paper, the summer of 2012 looked like a clear record-breaker. I think a lot of us were expecting we could beat last summer just based on the titles, the sheer number of blockbuster titles that were in the mix, Dergarabedian said. But the audience is what makes and breaks the summer, and they didnt come out in the numbers we expected for a lot of these films. Summer was ending quietly over Labor Day weekend, with overall revenues through Sunday down slightly compared to the same period a year ago. Domestic sales totaled $102 million, off 4.6 percent from last years Labor Day weekend, according to Hollywood.com. The horror tale The Possession debuted as the No. 1 movie with $17.7 million from Friday to Sunday, compared to $14.6 million for the top draw a year ago, The Help, which joined Rise of the Planet of the Apes to give Hollywood a strong seasonal finish that made summer 2011 a record-breaker. Before this summer arrived, Hollywood was on a box-office tear, with revenues up as much as 20 percent over 2011s. Studio executives hoped that would continue into summer, when they had what looked like the best lineup theyve ever offered. Instead of beating last summers record, though, revenues for the season fell for the first time in seven years. The picture gets worse factoring in higher admission prices. While revenues this time were well above the $3.6 billion haul in 2005, the last time summer dollars dipped, this seasons estimated 532 million admissions is well below the 563 million tickets sold in summer 2005. In the 20-year span since 1993, Dergarabedian said the only year that comes close to this seasons attendance was summer 2010, when 534 million tickets were sold. A strong Labor Day weekend could put this summer on par with 2010 attendance, but its still a soft season considering expectations at the start, when the superhero sensation The Avengers launched with a record $207.4 million debut over the first weekend in May. The Avengers took in $618 million domestically and the Batman finale The Dark Knight Rises so far has added about $430 million, their $1.05 billion total amounting to nearly one-fourth of Hollywoods overall summer haul. Clint Eastwood Associated PressLOS ANGELES Promoters of Michael Jacksons planned 2009 comeback described in emails how they feared for the megastars stability, saying he was out of shape and consumed with self-doubt. The Los Angeles Times obtained some 250 pages of messages, most between executives at Anschutz Entertainment Group, which was financing the ill-fated This Is It concerts set for London. Some of the emails indicated that executives were concerned that Jacksons planned 50-show stand at AEGs 02 Arena would be an expensive bust. In one exchange AEGs Randy Phillips wrote his boss that Jackson was an emotionally paralyzed mess. Phillips was writing from Jacksons London hotel suite just hours before a press conference announcing the concert run. MJ is locked in his room drunk and despondent, Phillips said in an email to AEG President Tim Leiweke. I (am) trying to sober him up. In the end, the emails show, Phillips and Jacksons manager had to dress the pop star, the Times said. He is scared to death, Phillips wrote to Leiweke. Jackson arrived 90 minutes late for the press conference and made brief remarks that some of the 350 reporters described as odd and disjointed. In an interview with the newspaper, AEGs attorney Marvin Putnam suggested Phillips had exaggerated in his emails and said Jacksons behavior appeared to be a case of nerves. The Times said the messages will probably play a key role in two lawsuits set for trial next year. The shows insurers are asking a judge to nullify a $17.5 million policy that they say AEG got with false claims about Jacksons health and readiness to perform. And Jacksons heirs filed a wrongful-death suit that accuses the entertainment giant of pressuring the singer to carry on with a comeback despite indications he was too weak. Lawyers for AEG, which has denied any wrongdoing, told the Times most of the correspondence was produced as discovery in ongoing litigation. They said the messages reviewed by the newspaper were incomplete and leaked to portray the company in a negative light. Numerous emails show Lloyds of London unsuccessfully pushing for access to five years of Jacksons medical records in order to expand insurance coverage for the concerts. The insurer also wanted the singer to undergo a fourhour medical exam that would include three doctors, heart monitoring and blood work. AEGs insurance broker tried to persuade Lloyds to drop the physical, according to the email discussions. AEG suggested that Jacksons physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, could give an oral recitation of Jacksons recent medical history instead, the Times reported. Lloyds refused. A Lloyds underwriter wrote that repeated requests for written records and details about Jacksons daily fitness program were met always with no response. Spotlight on PEOPLE E NTERTAINMENT Page B5 MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 Hollywoods summer C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday: If you show strong initiative and much diligence, you wont go unrewarded in the year ahead. Set some serious goals and use your assets wisely in order to make your mark in the world both socially and materially. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Involvement with some bold and daring friends will do your cautious nature a lot of good. Keep an open mind and figure out what you can learn from these chums. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) On-the-spot decision-making wont work out too well for you at present. Take plenty of time to weigh and balance all critical issues. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) In order for the day to be meaningful, its important that you spend some time on things on important matters. If you waste your time fooling around and doing nothing, youll regret it. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) As long as you dont involve yourself with persons who take games too seriously, activities that have elements of friendly competition could be very gratifying for you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Even though you might have some disturbing factors to deal with, once you start a task or an assignment, chances are you will follow it through to its conclusion. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) There are a number of friends youve been too busy to see lately who are anxious to get together with you. If you know who they are, surprise them by contacting them for a chat. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Things will work out well for you in areas where you focus your attention. Youll be able to generate some great ideas to make or save money, if you put your mind to it. Aries (March 21-April 19) Assume the initiative instead of waiting to be taken care of by others, especially if you want certain things to be done now. Others can wait you cant. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Even if you should find yourself in a quiet, reclusive mood, you can use it productively. Clean up all those jobs that you need to do alone. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Dont allow your social interests to dominate you to a point that it causes you to set aside or reschedule several urgent matters. Important things you neglect now will jump up and bite you later on. Cancer (June 21-July 22) In order to be successful, you need to know what you want, how you want it done and when youre going to do it. What you put off doing until later will never get done. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If youve already made a decision about something, stop rehashing it and get on with it. Overanalyzing it will merely confuse you further and completely jam up your flow.

B6 M ONDAY, S EPTEMBER 3, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Wendy Carlos, a composer and innovator in electronic music, said, A nice blend of prediction and surprise seems to be at the heart of the best art. Todays deal occurred in a small duplicate. It was interesting to see the results and try to guess what had happened it was a bit late for prediction. What do you think of the given auction? At the time, one East made three clubs with an overtrick. The other three results were two diamonds down one, three diamonds down one and four diamonds down one! South should open one heart despite three of his 12 points being a singleton king. He has a nice 5-5, and it pays to bid first. This silences West. North responds one spade, East overcalls two clubs, and South rebids two diamonds. Now West should raise to three clubs. He has three decent trumps, a singleton and two potential heart tricks. And North competes to three diamonds. At this point, East should not pass. His side has at least 10 clubs, so he should be happy to bid four clubs. He might even jump to five clubs, deducing that West is short in diamonds. East should win 11 tricks in clubs, losing one spade and one diamond. The play in diamonds is much tougher. The best defense is two rounds of clubs. Probably South would ruff, cash dummys top diamonds, play a spade to his ace, and lead another spade. East wins, cashes the diamond queen, and leads a club, giving a worthless ruff-and-sluff. Now South must be careful to lose only one spade, two hearts, one diamond and one club. Be aggressive with a good trump fit, especially with short side-suits.

They have no children. My wife and I liked her husband, but he never wanted to work for anyone. He always thought he could run his own business and could never manage it. After theyd been married 10 years, we told Grace that she should get some counseling or get a divorce. A few years ago, Grace met some jerk online who thinks hes Gods gift to the world. Barry is divorced and has three daughters. We didnt know about him until we helped Grace get settled into a nice apartment. Thats when Barry moved in. Hes been there for two years and doesnt have a job, nor is he looking for one. He is on disability benefits and says its not costing Grace anything to house him. Barry has insulted my wife and me and says we dont love our daughter. None of our family members wants to be around him, which makes holidays tough. When she was married, Grace used to spend most weekends outdoors with her husband. Now all she does is sit around in pool halls so Barry can shoot pool. He is so heavy, he can barely walk. Grace doesnt like to be alone, and this is the only reason we can see that she keeps Barry around. We sought information on him online, but couldnt find anything. He said he would know if anyone tried to look him up on the Internet. This seems vaguely threatening. How can we talk to her about this without upsetting her too much? Loving Dad Dear Dad: We understand your concern, but you seem overly involved in your grown daughters love life, which may be contributing to the drama. She knows you are there to clean up after her, so she has not learned to exercise good judgment or deal with the consequences of her choices. Tell her you love her and only want the best. Suggest she get counseling to understand why she is attracted to this type of man. Then let her live her life without your cushion. Yes, there may be rough times. Listen sympathetically, but do not step in and rescue her. These are her decisions, and the results are her responsibility. Dear Annie : My two daughters think nothing of letting their opposite-sex children run around naked, alone or with a group of family members. These two cousins also bathe and use the bathroom together. The boy is 8, and the girl is 7. Is this acceptable behavior, or should they be told to keep their clothes on? Perplexed Grandma Dear Grandma : These kids are a little too old to be running around naked in public and sharing baths. Suggest to your daughters that they teach the children about respecting their bodies before one of them hits puberty. Dear Annie: Concerned is right to be concerned about her sisters memory lapses. My mother has dementia, and I am up on the signs. Treatment should be sought sooner rather than later. There are mental acuity tests to determine whether there really is a problem, and if so, there are medications that can slow down the progression of this disease. Tell her to make an appointment with a neurologist. Help her understand that an evaluation is in her best interests. If she wont go, Concerned should talk to her doctor before her next visit. She can go along and give the doctor a note expressing her concerns. Im There Dear There: A certain amount of forgetfulness is not cause for alarm. But if her sisters memory lapses are severe and interfere with functioning, a visit with a doctor will help. Thanks. Annies Snippet for Labor Day (credit Sophocles): Without labor nothing prospers.
