Jayden Dyess had been visiting with her parents. The family is from Ocala. Emergency workers rushed to the home and learned that the 2-year-old girl had been watching TV when family members last saw her. Jaydens parents were out at the time, but other family members pulled the toddler from the pool and attempted CPR. She was transported by Nature Coast EMS to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center in Crystal River. The medical examiners office also responded to the hospital and will be taking the youngster to Leesburg for an autopsy. CCSO detectives found nothing suspicious and said the toddlers death appears to be consistent with an accidental drowning. NEWS BRIEF From staff reports C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterWhen the Port Citrus project was proposed early last year, one Inverness businessman took interest because he has been using ports for years. Knowing how the port business works, Jeff Barnes followed the progress of the concept, as he said he would like to have a port in the county. Importing and exporting building products, Barnes thought it could be useful. Why wouldnt I want a port right here? Barnes asked. But the project for the barge canal filled him with dismay: Its too shallow. It wont get enough traffic to make it profitable because not enough product can be shipped out and when product is shipped in, where can it go? Barnes doubts have been echoed by many residents who dont have international trade backgrounds. Since Barnes has taken his concerns directly to Port Director Brad Thorpe, who also is the county administrator, and will have a meeting with him this week to discuss his points, the Chronicle talked with Barnes about whats wrong with the idea. Thorpe said he will wait until N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff WriterINVERNESS As Jim Smith reflected on his 30 years working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, he recalled the night he supposedly died. This was back before we had an airboat assigned to us when I was working the Flying Eagle area on foot, he said. We had gathered some intel about a group doing some night hunting way back in the swamp. We pulled in some undercover guys who infiltrated the group at a bar and found out their pattern, when they went out, he said. One night, Smith went out past midnight and heard an airboat start up and heard some gunshots. To get to them, Smith had to wade knee-deep through swamp water, and he debated doing so for awhile. After some more gunshots, he seized the opportunity and jumped into their boat, shined his flashlight into their faces and identified himself. Startled, one of the men shined a light into Smiths face then hit the gas. Thats when Smith flew out of the boat, landing on his back in the mud. I looked up and here he comes, spinning around right toward me, Smith said. He stopped the boat (inches from me) and took off. Later at the bar, the guy was telling people all about it, that he left Smith laying dead in the swamp. He was scared, Smith said. He thought he killed me. Smiths last day as an FWC investigator was Sept. 1. He officially retires Sept. 30. Now 57, he came to Inverness as his first assignment, straight from the academy at Pasco Hernando Community College, and stayed in Citrus County his entire career. They sent me here and said to be a part of the community, he said. He already had deep roots in the community. His grandmother was from the Bellamy family and grew up in Inverness. He said his Serving the wild Businessman: Project faces too many obstacles Inverness businessman Jeff Barnes has watched the conceptual stage of Port Citrus unfold with interest, since he constantly uses seaports in his business of importing and exporting building products. Barnes said he cant see how Port Citrus could become a reality.

MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Local real estate market sees upswing S HEMIR W ILES Staff WriterBusy is the name of the game when it comes to the real estate climate in Citrus County. It has picked up considerably, Sarah Spencer, president of the Realtors Association of Citrus County, said Friday. Countrywide, the National Association of Realtors stated Wednesday pending home sales rose in July to the highest level in more than two years. These numbers also reportedly remain well above last years levels. In Citrus County, new listings were up 14.2 percent for detached homes and 23.8 percent for attached properties in the month of July. Pending sales, the number of properties where offers have been accepted in a given month, increased 78.8 percent for singlefamily homes. Closed sales, a calculation of the actual sales that close in a month, increased 7.5 percent. Additionally, the median sales price jumped up 13.3 percent to $94,000 for detached homes, though they decreased 4.8 percent to $60,000 for attached properties. However, the inventory of homes for sale at the end of July decreased 37.2 percent for singlefamily units. Spencer said while rumors continue to swirl about a secret inventory of foreclosures possibly hitting the market sometime soon, the banks have been stating there is no such thing. Wondering whether its just the hopeful wishing of buyers looking for cheap homes, Spencer said the properties LABOR DAY: Pomp and pride Americans mark Labor Day with speeches, parades, and of course, picnics./ Page A10 See UPSWING / Page A5 Obama, Romney visits to Gulf highlight differences Associated PressLaPLACE, La. President Barack Obamas trip to the hurricane zone three days after rival Mitt Romney looked over flooded homes and businesses underscores the differences in the way the presidential candidates see the role of government. So far, the presidents remarks about the storm have focused on what money and resources the federal government can marshal to help. Romney, the Republican challenger, used his trip Friday to emphasize the need for charitable donations to help people recover. Obama was visiting Louisiana late Monday to hear about the damage from local officials, view the recovery efforts and make a statement likely to highlight the governments role in the crisis. Obama was slated to walk through hard-hit St. John the Baptist Parish, 30 miles outside of New Orleans. Its a small, heavily Catholic area of about 45,000 residents. The largest city is LaPlace, where several neighborhoods were inundated by water and some residents were rescued from rooftops by boats.

Martin Associates will identify the potential users of this port, Thorpe said. At the Worldwide Building Products office across from the Citrus County Courthouse, Barnes and his staff use computers to do business in buying and selling hardwood plywood. The plywood is shipped from its source currently Ecuador to the United States through seaports. We have also imported from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, Malaysia and China, Barnes said. Were port users. We are importing into the U.S. and we are evaluating the ports that ring the U.S., what their strong suits and what their weak points are. In past years, Barnes said he has imported and exported through several Florida ports: Port of Miami, Port Everglades, Riviera Beach, Jacksonville, Fernandina Beach and Manatee. Right now, he is using only Port Everglades, as others dont have shipping service with Ecuador. The business maintains inventories in Baltimore, Everglades, Houston, Los Angeles and Oakland. From those five U.S. ports, building products are taken by truck or rail to 27 inland destinations. Were involved with logistics, steamship lines, trucking, rail, Barnes said. Were constantly evaluating ports to see if there is a better option, anything thats closer to or faster to our final destination. In moving building products, Barnes has to do research and make decisions about which steamship line would be able to service his point-to-point, west coast, South America to Florida. What types of ships do the steamship lines operate? Types of ships include containerized cargo, break bulk cargo where slings lift product from the hold and bulk cargo that might be grain thats siphoned out. In addition, some ships are specialized, like auto carriers. Barnes and his staff also look at warehousing costs and facility costs at the port, and the logistic capabilities intermodal transportation from the port to the final destination. For a new port to be successful, Barnes said it would first have to identify its market. You would have to know who your customer is, Barnes said. What type of customers are you likely to have? What are their products? What are the ocean carriers that are willing to service that port and capable of servicing that port? What international destinations do they service and can you match up a steamship line with a shippers products? These are constant questions for Barnes in his business, and he cant see how Port Citrus would meet enough of the need in international shipping to be successful. You have to know those things before you put a shovel in the ground, he said. The port authority can look at the limitations and advantages of Port Citrus. First, they have 13 to 15 feet of water depth, Barnes said. Any basic small ship is going to require 35 feet. The post-Panamax ships that come through the Panama Canal will increase cargo volume. Barnes said ships this size cant get into the Port of Tampa as it is not deep enough. As Port Citrus, envisioned within the former Cross Florida Barge Canal construction, would not have the depth for ships, it would be limited to barges. Barges are open top, so that narrows it to cargo that can get wet, Barnes said. With these limitations, the port developer would have to consider what sort of products would go through Port Citrus and how they would be stored. A shipper would not commit to using a port until a plan were in place and a port operator would not commit to running it until he could see enough potential business volume for a profit. Even a business like ours, which is small, we bring maybe 1,000 containers a year through the Panama Canal, Barnes said. The quantity we could bring to Citrus, even though we have a strong presence in Florida, wouldnt begin to entice anyone. It would take 15 companies like ours. A proposed potential use for Port Citrus would be to take product from outbound shippers and put product on a barge to Tampa where it would go out internationally. If you go into Port Citrus, youre going to pay offloading and storage. Then you are going to pay a loading charge onto the barge. Then you are going to pay ocean freight onto the barge. You are going to pay offloading the barge in Tampa. You are going to pay storage and loading the international vessel when it arrives, Barnes said. No one would do that. Youd just pay the extra $150 by truck to get to Tampa in the first place. The shallowness of the canal would not be overcome by getting in and out at high tide on an adjusted schedule, one suggested solution to the inadequate depth. Ships dont adjust schedules, Barnes said. Ships cost tens of thousands of dollars a day. Ports are 24/7 operations where everyone goes to work when the vessel arrives. No one waits for the tide. Another proposed potential was for Port Citrus to be part of a marine highway. Two years ago, the U.S. Department of Transportation put together a plan to move more cargo on selected corridors of water to keep cargo off roads. The Cross Gulf Container Expansion connecting Port Manatee to Brownsville, Texas, would increase an existing container-onbarge operation. What is proposed is that a container ship would dock at a deepwater port, offload and reload onto barges that would work like a conveyor belt to smaller ports around the Gulf. Barnes said, however, the scenario is imaginary. Its actually going to be the opposite of that, Barnes said. If you look at the infrastructure thats going in place in ports like Tampa, its just about finished with being able to load a 100-car train from vessel to train. No barges would be needed. Time counts, too. If you can come into a port, then directly on a rail to your final destination, look at the time that saves versus coming into a port, discharge, store, wait for the barge service, load the barge, Barnes said. The conveyor belt theory from the large ports to the small ports really is not going to work because the large ports are making rail and truck commitments for final destinations. Shipping is not easy. Its a constant job of making pieces fit. Its like saying Inverness has an airport, Barnes said. I want to climb on a United 474 for a direct flight to Paris. There are a thousand reasons why I cant. The same is true of Port Citrus there are reasons why it cant function the way they visualize it.

PORTContinued from Page A1 House press secretary Jay Carney said natural disasters are apolitical, but he jabbed at the Republican presidential ticket and their stand on the governments role in aiding the victims. It is worth noting that last year there was an effort to underfund the money thats used to provide relief to Americans when theyve been hit by disasters, Carney said. That effort was led by Congressman Paul Ryan, who is now running to be vice president. Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said the Wisconsin congressman believes providing aid to victims of natural disasters is a critical obligation and should be treated as a high priority within a fiscally responsible budget. Aside from drawing a distinction with Romney on the role of government, Obama also will signal the advantages he has over his opponent as a sitting president. The White House publicized how much Obama has done to oversee the storm response he called governors and mayors, received briefings by weather and security advisers, and declared states of emergency before the storm hit. Since the storm hit last week, Democrats have been using the disaster issue to hammer Romney and his running mate, whose budget had proposed eliminating $10 billion a year in disaster spending and requiring Congress to pay for emergencies by cutting from elsewhere in the budget. GOP leaders blocked that proposal, and Romney hasnt said whether he agreed with Ryans proposed cuts. Residents of LaPlace spent Monday cleaning their homes, dragging out waterlogged carpets and furniture, using brooms to push out mud and debris and relying on water and bleach to clean what was left. Its gross, said Barbara Melton, 60, who has lived in her home for 23 years and never experienced flooding. Its hot, it stinks, but Im trying to get all this mud and stuff out of my house. Melton, broom in hand, smiled when talking about Obama visiting the area. Having him here and seeing the situation really helps people be able to cope with whats going on, whats happened here. Both Romneys team and the presidents insist that their visits are not aimed at political gain. But the specter of Hurricane Katrina helps explain why both men sought to tour Isaacs damage. Presidents, and would-be presidents, cant afford to get panned the way President George W. Bush did in the days after Katrina crippled New Orleans and the Mississippi and Alabama coasts in 2005, killing more than 1,800. OBAMA Continued from Page A1

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE S HEMIR W ILES Staff Wiles CRYSTAL RIVERU sing axes, shovels and a bit of elbow grease, volunteers from the First Baptist Church of Inglis flexed their muscles and minds during a scheduled work day at Faith Haven Christian Retreat Center. With clear instructions from the course operators Common Ground Adventures out of St. Petersburg, the group along with Faith Haven Vice President Harry Lewis and his son, Tim cut wood, moved notched stumps and dug holes early Saturday morning to create a new adventure course on the retreats grounds just north of Crystal River. Called river crossing, the objective of the course is to move an entire team of people from the beginning to the end of the path by placing bridges from one wooden stump, or deck, to the next. The catch is there are only three planks used to accomplish the task. Nearby, the local Civil Air Patrol cadets worked on the low ropes adventure course called the spider web. The point of the activity is to move a group of people from one side of the web to the other by passing one another or moving through the gaps in the web on ones own. Volunteers from Crystal River Church of God were also on hand Saturday morning for the work day. Scott Baggerly, who heads up the retreat center with his wife, Diane, said the purpose with each course is to have a lesson behind it. The children who use each course learn teamwork and have fun while enjoying the great outdoors. Eventually, Baggerly would like to see church groups, civic associations, youth organizations and individuals use the property as a place to learn, get away from it all and enjoy the outdoors. However, one of the biggest problems has been getting the word out about his centers existence. Theres a need for labor and funding before the entire dream can come true. Nevertheless, Baggerly said he would keep plugging away at it because he believes Citrus County needs a place like Faith Haven, especially the countys youth. Working inside Soquili Stables with the grounds growing Cracker horse herd, horse trainer Merlyn Lewis said many come to the stables to learn what it takes to care for a horse. Katrina Hudgens mucked one of the stalls while her 11-yearold daughter, Taryn, brushed Spirit, a Cracker horse that recently twisted its ankle. Hudgens, a teacher at Lecanto Primary School, said she found out about Faith Haven last school year. Her daughter attended two summer camps at the stables and fell in love. Therefore, she decided to volunteer on work days. She, too, fell in love with the center. I just love being around the horses, she said. Its a stress reliever. Eventually, Baggerly said he wants to offer equine therapy and pony sharing. For more information about Faith Haven Christian Retreat Center, visit www.faithhaven crc.org or call 352-795-7387.

Working on a dream Special to the ChronicleHeavy rains, high tides and water-holding containers create conditions for mosquito-borne disease, and that has some Citrus County residents concerned for the safety of their family, friends, pets and livestock. The Citrus County Mosquito Control District, tasked with limiting the spread of mosquitoes and other nuisance insects that spread disease among humans and animals, currently, has a bigger job to do with a smaller pool of resources. Like many other cash-strapped state and county agencies facing dire financial situations, state budget cuts are having a profound effect on the ability to control mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit, according to the Mosquito Control District. The district continues to marshal available resources to combat these public health threats and minimize human/mosquito contact. Mosquito control methods utilized are designed to be the safest, most comprehensive and effective available. Our control program consists of surveillance, inspections, source reduction, trucks/ATVs, helicopter and, when appropriate and surveys indicate the need, application of mosquito larvicides and adulticides specifically evaluated and registered by the EPA for mosquito abatement, the district said in a news release. But cuts in our mosquito control budget, coupled with increased federal and state regulatory requirements, are making it more difficult for us to use the tools necessary to protect our citizens. We need your continued support. In the meantime, individuals can do their part by eliminating or treating mosquito-breeding habitats around their homes, including discarded tires, unwashed bird baths, clogged rain gutters and unused plastic wading pools. People can also take steps to prevent bites by wearing longsleeved clothing and applying EPA-registered repellents such as DEET, picaridin, IR3535 and oil of lemon-eucalyptus.

Special to the ChronicleCitrus 20/20s Save Our Waters Week Committee, in cooperation with the Citrus County Aquatics Service Division and the Ocean Conservancy, is pleased to announce the countys 23rd annual Adopt-AShore/Coastal Cleanup is scheduled for sunrise to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. Groups of two or more are invited to join other volunteers across the county in removing debris from shorelines, waterways and the beaches of the countys lakes, rivers and oceans. People of all ages can participate. Friends, families, neighbors, club members, scout troops, and grade-school classes are needed to work together to help cleanup waterways. For folks living on the west side of the county, contact Lace BlueMcLean at 352-201-0149, or email info.citrus 2020@gmail.com. Those on the east side should contact Greg Schmukal at 352-860-2762 or by email at basscatchers @embarqmail.com, or call the Citrus County Aquatics Services directly at 352-527-7620. A program agreement will then be mailed out along with a participant sign-up sheet. Each group will be responsible for knowing the accessibility of the area being adopted, organizing and transporting the group as necessary, and the general safety of the group. Want to join an existing group or dont see an area to clean up? Go ahead and call! You will be assisted in locating a group or area to adopt. All groups must be registered by Sept. 10 to participate in this years event. More information and event forms may be downloaded at www. citrus2020.org. Supplies for the cleanup will be provided at the safety meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Lecanto Government Building, Room 166, located at 3600 W. Sovereign Path (off County Road 491) in Lecanto. This meeting will last approximately one hour and at least one representative from each adopting group must attend in order to receive supplies for their group. This event coincides with the Ocean Conservancys International Coastal Cleanup. Immediately following the cleanup, there will be volunteer appreciation luncheons on both sides of the county.

The notes offer new details about Aguiar, whose boat was last seen speeding and jumping waves hours before it washed ashore with its engines running June 19 in Fort Lauderdale. Police found no blood on the boat and no evidence of foul play. Notes compiled by several officers during the 48-hour air-and-sea search for Aguiar were obtained by the Sun Sentinel through a Freedom of Information Act request. According to the watchstander logs based on interviews and investigators notes, Aguiar was seen on camera leaving his house with a purpose and getting on a boat. Aguiar was not in a good frame of mind due to financial problems, and he had had an argument with his wife over divorce, according to the notes. He left his watch and wedding ring at home. The notes, though, dont prove that Aguiar planned a suicide, Cmdr. Darren Caprara told the Sun Sentinel. We dont truly know where something went wrong, Caprara said. We ask hundreds of questions to try and get any small detail to aid our search. What we are really trying to get to is what he could have done out there. New details about missing tycoon

He walked about half a mile roundtrip before plunking down in a green plastic chair to gaze at natures beauty and at Henry Flaglers century-old engineering marvel. I love it, the 71-year-old from Ohio said on a breezy morning last week. I love the view, the colors, the story behind it with the railroads. And, when I was young, I used to bring my kids down here. I remember the old bridge before the new one was built. Runaway Grandpa is among thousands of people who walk, jog, push strollers, bike, picnic, catch the sunrise, toast the sunset and watch for marine life on the world famous bridge, once called the Eighth Wonder of the World and now on the National Register of Historic Places. How much longer can the bridges main 2.2-mile section safely support people? Nobody knows. The steel and concrete bridge, completed exactly 100 years ago to link Marathon to the Lower Keys, is deteriorating in the harsh salt and sun environment. The main section which goes to historic Pigeon Key, a tiny island that once served as the work camp for the Florida East Coast Railway already is too unsafe for vehicles and fishermen who continuously lean on the fragile railing. Last summer, a nonprofit community group called Friends of Old Seven was formed to try to rescue the bridge. Leading the charge is Bernard Spinrad, a retired Marathon resident who formerly was Arubas director of tourism. Friends of Old Seven is working with Monroe County, the city of Marathon and the bridge owners (the Florida Department of Transportation) to come up with a bold but practical renovation plan and the $16 to $20 million needed to fund it. All sides agree it is in everybodys long-term interest to save the bridge which is a major tourist attraction to the Middle Keys but has been a bridge to nowhere to FDOT since 1982, when the new Seven Mile Bridge was completed. Weve been trying to give up the old bridges ownership for decades, said Gus Pego, FDOTs District 6 Secretary. Its a recreational facility, not a transportation facility. And what I tell commissioners and folks who ask me: Given our limited budget, wouldnt you rather we maintain the new bridge? The unique old bridge has generated plenty of free publicity for the Middle Keys. Kisha and Jen pedaled three-wheeled bikes along the bridge to win CBS Amazing Race 18. Cuban migrants were found clinging to piling of the old bridge in 2006 that led to a controversial wet foot/dry foot case that sent them back to Cuba. And in 1994, the old bridge was famously blown up in True Lies with Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Pego said the parking lot at the entrance to the north end is concrete now thanks to the True Lies crew, which needed a hard surface to launch the U.S. Marine Harriers. Spinrad said the old Seven Mile Bridge has the potential to boost the local economy even more. Hes been inspired by the cases of two other abandoned railroads that were brought to life by public and private partnerships: the High Line in New York City and Walkway Over the Hudson in upper New York. Both are roaring successes, and there are many other examples like that, Spinrad said. We are not the lone wolf out there. Longtime Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent said the county has always wanted to rescue the bridge, but other bigticket items including wastewater management and the central sewer system have taken priority. But those major county projects are winding down, and money from a multibillion-dollar BP oil spill settlement may be available for the bridge project. Under the Gulf Coast Restoration Act of 2012, 23 counties in Florida will be eligible for funding for tourism, economy revival and sustaining natural resources and ecosystems. Clearly, the bridge could fall under one of more umbrellas of shovel-ready projects that we could move forward on, Neugent said. The act is out of Congress now and passed down to a consortium to divvy up. Maybe for the old Seven Mile Bridge, the timing is right. Pego said no FDOT funding is currently in place for the bridges renovation, but the state agency would be willing to commit 50 percent of the costs, with one big condition: The county, city or another entity would take over ownership of the bridge upon completion of the work. The new owners would become responsible for maintenance and liability, which could cost around $300,000 annually. Renovating the bridge also would eliminate the need for ferry service to Pigeon Key, which now costs about $250,000 annually and is split among the county, city and FDOT. Friends of Old Seven just held a bridge design contest for architecture graduate students at Florida International University. The county kicked in $5,000 of the $12,500 cost. For the contest, called Imagine 07, the students were told to let their imaginations run wild. And they did. They came up with an underwater restaurant, water slide, a ski-lift type people mover that would run under the bridge and human fish tanks, where people could view marine life. Good luck getting permits for those endeavors in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Associated Press Norm Dilles morning ritual usually includes a trip to the old Seven Mile Bridge to take in the views. A nonprofit community group called Friends of Old Seven was formed last summer to try to rescue the bridge.

He carries a lot of the history of this county, said Smiths wife, Dotty. He knows how to get to all the places in the swamp that no one knows. Other law enforcement and game wardens call him all the time and have really depended on him. I think his retirement will be harder on them than on him. Even though Smith grew up in Weirsdale, he was familiar with Citrus County, and coming to Inverness to work was coming home; he fit right in with the community. Thirty years ago, Inverness was a small town, he said. There was a lot more places where people could go and hunt. At that time, the FWC was the Game and Freshwater Fish Commission and Smith was hired as a game warden, patrolling the east side of the county. However, he often worked the entire county alone, all hours of the day and night, always on call. He did that for 18 years. When we merged with the Marine Patrol, it added a lot of positions, he said. We have about six or eight officers now. He moved into investigations in 2001. In 2010, the job included Internet crimes, which added a whole new dimension to hunting hunters, as he calls it. That shows how far weve come, he said. Now you can sit at home with your computer and find somebody violating the law and make your whole case. As an example, somebody had called to report illegal deer hunting the person had posted photos on Facebook. Smith found the persons Facebook page and saw photos with the dates on them of a woman skinning a deer. He sent her a friend request from a fictitious Facebook account, which she accepted, then looked through her friends photos and identified the other people in the original photo, found them, interviewed them and fined them. We didnt have a deer to show as evidence, but we had pictures, he said. Smith said over the years he learned that hunting hunters is a lot like hunting game. When youre after deer hunters, you go where the deer are. You look for deer tracks. You ask, Where would I go if I was this deer hunter? He said hes gotten to know human nature, that most law breakers lie or offer excuses when caught like the guys who shot a bear in Chassahowitzka and said they thought it was a hog, but then they ended up in an Orlando parking lot at 3 a.m. trying to sell the bear hide. As for retirement, Smith said he plans to stay active. He and his wife, Dotty, want to buy a fifth-wheel trailer and head west to do work, camping at state parks or national forests. Its a good way to travel, he said. You go wherever they need a campground host; they give you a site for free, your fuel is tax deductible and a lot of the positions pay. Plus, Ill have my guns with me, and itll be coming up hunting season before you know it. Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy can be reached at nkennedy@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2927. RETIRE Continued from Page A1 available now are already cheap, and people are taking advantage of the good prices. Lately, she said she has been working with numerous baby boomers from up North who are looking for a second home, which they can rent out until they are ready to retire. They are amazed at how much the homes cost in Citrus County. In some cases, Spencer said her clients tell her the cost of their second home is half of what they paid for their home up North. In addition, buyers are also coming in with a strong understanding of what theyre looking for in a house. The consumers are smarter than they have ever been, she said. People are doing their research on the Internet and coming ready to see certain properties so they can make it a done deal, she added. Heading into the September, Spencer said many of the people looking to purchase properties would be those scrambling to find a good winter home before the weather begins to cool in the Northern states. Though for buyers, the market is a smorgasbord, Spencer said, the sellers are still taking a huge hit in the wallet. If they bought during the real estate boom, they will never recover the money they spent, she said. Nevertheless, the influx of new residents means economic stimulus on all fronts from shopping and restaurants to taxes and business development. It goes in a circle, Spencer said. I love it ... its just a revolving door.Chronicle reporter Shemir Wiles can be reached at 352-564-2924 or swiles@chronicle online.com. UPSWING Continued from Page A1

Another pilot whale dies after beaching MIAMI Another whale that was part of a pod of pilot whales that stranded on a central Florida beach has died. The juvenile whale had been at Florida Atlantic Universitys Harbor Branch Institute for rehabilitation since Saturday. Harbor Branch official Steve McCullough said the male whale died around noon Monday after unexpectedly declining. Four other juvenile pilot whales brought to the FAU facility are being treated for infections. The whales were part of a pod of 22 that stranded Saturday at Avalon State Park in St. Lucie County. The rest of the pod died of natural causes or had to be euthanized. Experts hope to stabilize the four surviving whales so they can continue their rehabilitation at SeaWorld Orlando. Eventually, they could be released back into the ocean. Casinos closed after aquarium leak HALLANDALE BEACH Two casinos at Gulfstream Park had to be closed after a 13,000-gallon aquarium sprang a leak. A seam in the aquarium in the second-floor casino cracked open early Sunday. President and general manager Tim Ritvo said two floors of slot machines and the poker room will be closed for at least a few days. Gulfstreams shops, dining rooms and simulcast area remain open. Director of gaming Mike Couch said casino employees raced to plug the leak with towels from the bar area. About 3,000 gallons of water remained in the saltwater aquarium. Couch said that was enough to keep more than a dozen fish safe and swimming until they could be moved to another aquarium. The fish include sharks, a lion fish, a puffer fish and various tropical species. Two nipped by sharks in Atlantic DAYTONA BEACH Authorities said two swimmers are recovering after being nipped by sharks in the ocean off central Florida. Volusia County Beach Patrol Capt. Tammy Marris said a 58year-old Orlando woman in 3 feet of water suffered a small puncture wound to her left ankle Sunday afternoon. The woman drove herself to a hospital. Marris told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that an 8year-old Deltona girl was bitten a couple of hours later while she was boogie-boarding in shallow water. The girl suffered minor puncture wounds to her calf and hand. Her parents took her to a hospital. Man dies in boat collision MIAMI Authorities said a 27-year-old man has died after his personal watercraft collided with a boat in Biscayne Bay. Miami Fire-Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll said a Sea Tow operator noticed the commotion and pulled one man from the water late Sunday. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Associated PressThe nations oil and gas hub along the Gulf Coast is slowly coming back to life in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac. Offshore oil platforms are beginning to ramp up production as crews are returning. Refineries are beginning to restart units as power is restored and floodwaters are cleared out. While a substantial amount of oil and gas production remains off line, production is coming back as expected. No major damage to oil platforms or refineries have been reported, and no further storm-related spikes in energy prices are expected. The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said Monday that 800,000 barrels per day of oil production remained offline, 58 percent of Gulf of Mexico production. About 100,000 barrels per day of production was restored between Sunday and Monday. At the height of the storm 1.3 million barrels per day of oil production was suspended. The U.S. consumes an average of 19 million barrels of petroleum every day. Companies have been quickly returning workers to platforms. About 12 percent of the regions platforms were still without staff. Nearly all of the Gulfs offshore platforms and rigs were evacuated last week. Nine refineries in the path of Isaac are restarting or operating at reduced rates, according to the Energy Department. One refinery has returned to full operation and one, the Belle Chasse, La., refinery operated by Phillips 66, is still shut down because it is still without power. The company said Sunday most of the floodwater had been cleared from the refinery and most refinery personnel had returned to work to prepare the plant for re-start when power was restored. On Monday, the company said there was no update to the refinerys status. The national average price of gasoline rose 11 cents last week as Isaac threatened the Gulf Coast and then swept ashore with high winds and flooding rains. But by Friday the price had leveled off to just under $3.83 per gallon. Monday, the average price declined barely by 0.2 cents, to $3.827 per gallon, according to the Oil Price Information Service, AAA and Wright Express. Thats the highest ever price for gasoline for Labor Day, though it is 11 cents below this years high of $3.94 per gallon, set April 6.

O PINION Page A8 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 Set an example Is it any wonder that bullying of every description is displayed by so many of our youth today? My dad used to say Do as I say, not as I do. Unfortunately, the study of human psychology has shown us that this is rarely the case. Children tend to imitate the behavior modeled by authority figures starting with their parents, teachers and right up the ladder to our national leaders. The political rhetoric, slander and downright bullying we are witnessing in todays political climate should cause those in high places to be more careful in how they address others, including their political foes. Shame on them for behaving this way, and shame on us for not taking a stand on it. Marsha Shappell Inverness Opinion appreciated Id like to express my appreciation to Jo Darling of Lecanto, who has so eloquently expressed her own views in letters to the editor of the Chronicle. Most recently her letters about womens rights were direct and to the point. Thanks for speaking out for us as well as for future generations, Jo! Dorothy Abel Homosassa T hursday nights convention speech, the symbolic opening of Barack Obamas general-election effort, represents an important moment in this years campaign. But no matter what the president says, and no matter how well he says it, history likely will record that the 2012 presidential race was transformed not in September but in August and not by anything that happened at the Republican National Convention in Tampa last week. Thats because this is no longer a campaign of Obama against Mitt Romney. Its a campaign of Obama against Rep. Paul Ryan. Not in a generation perhaps not ever has a vice-presidential nominee had such a transformative effect on a national political ticket. By selecting Ryan, Romney did more than signal what kind of administration the Republicans would conduct if they win the White House in November. He did more than catapult Ryan, until now a cult hero to a tiny enclave of think-tank conservatives, into a national figure and, barring a catastrophic faux pas, a presidential candidate in his own right four or eight years from now. Romneys choice transformed his presidential campaign into a conversation about Ryans personality, character and ideas. Some running mates have delivered fresh credibility and excitement to a campaign. Thats what Sen. Edmund S. Muskie did in 1968, when Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey added him to the Democratic ticket, much as Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman did when he joined Al Gore as his vice-presidential nominee in 2000. Both tickets lost close races and both running mates faltered early in their own, separate campaigns four years later. But Ryan did something that neither Muskie nor Lieberman did. He added a new ideological cast to his ticket. Not even the most ideological running mate of modern times, Henry A. Wallace, who ran with Franklin Roosevelt in 1940, did that. More recently, the selection of Joseph R. Biden Jr. as Obamas 2008 running mate didnt reposition the ticket even one degree ideologically. Neither did Gov. Bill Clintons 1992 choice of Sen. Al Gore, nor Vice President George H.W. Bushs 1988 selection of Sen. Dan Quayle. The choice of former Rep. Dick Cheney to run with George W. Bush in 2000 had a dramatic effect on the character of the ensuing Bush administration, but it had no effect on the Bush campaign, except and hardly anyone remembers this perhaps to soften rather than harden the image of the ticket. Ryans selection, on the other hand, has changed everything including future assessments of the impact of a vice-presidential nominee. Obamas speech this week will take dead aim at Romney, to be sure. He almost certainly will portray the GOP nominee as an innocuous opportunist, or worse, knowing that is precisely how many of his fellow Republicans view the former Massachusetts governor. But that no longer matters all that much, at least politically. Romneys ideas, which members of both parties consider comprehensive but suspect are not genuine, arent really the point anymore. None of this is to say that if the Republicans win, Romney wont be the top dog, make the Cabinet choices, sketch the outlines of American foreign policies and be the public face of the nation at international summits. He will. But Ryan is the Reggie Jackson of the Republicans. Hes the straw that stirs the drink. He also stirs something deep in the modern Republican Party, which for the last six elections has had a rebellious, muscular conservative undertone but each time has nominated for president a conventional Republican, steeped in establishment values and possessing conventional qualifications a vice president, two incumbent presidents, two high-profile senators who had both lost earlier nomination fights. Mush that together and you have Richard Nixon, who, remarkably, qualifies on all counts. Romney is conventional as well. Like George W. Bush, he served as governor of an important state and, like both Presidents Bush, he was reared by a prominent political father. But Romneys running mate is a House member, which is unusual but not unprecedented, and Ryan also is the author of the principal Republican budget proposal, one that takes dead aim at the spending and entitlement programs that are like the weather: Everyone talks about them, but nobody does anything about them. Much of last weeks GOP convention was designed to burnish the image of Romney, to add human dimensions to his profile, to portray him as an experienced job creator who can do what Obama has failed to do: trim unemployment substantially and get the economy moving. Seeking to make the public comfortable with an alternative to the incumbent is standard fare for a challengers convention. But what is different in 2012 is that the table-setting for the fall campaign has been altered. Nobody is talking much about Romneys ideas. People are talking about Ryans. Nobody is saying there is Republican excitement over Romney. People are talking about Ryan. This week the Democrats will spend plenty of time demonizing Romney. Theyll say he is an outsourcer, a heartless private-equity wizard whose eyes turn to the bottom line and away from the human costs of efficiency, a bloodless executive lacking in the common touch. But the ideas the Democrats will demonize wont be Romneys but Ryans. Hes the guy who makes Republican hearts flutter and who gives Democrats heartburn. Other running mates have done that, of course. Gov. Spiro Agnew of Maryland performed that duty in the 1968 campaign and then in the vice presidency. But he had no real ideas of his own. He had a kind of Murderers Row of the speech-writing craft (William Safire and Patrick J. Buchanan), but what he pedaled was invective, not ideology. This is what sets Ryan apart. He has a mind of his own, and ideas of his own. Since the spring, the political class has wondered what might happen when Obama and Romney meet for a debate. Onetime Jimmy Carter speechwriter James Fallows even filled eight Atlantic Monthly pages this month speculating on this looming meeting of titans. But that may not be the main event. The real fun will occur Oct 11. Thats when Biden and Ryan face off in front of a national audience. Skip it and youll likely miss the biggest moment of the 2012 campaign. David M.

Instead, it is a muddy path through a neighbors yard, courtesy of flooding that has blocked their road home since Tropical Storm Debby came through in June. And there is very little the county can do to alleviate the problem, because the road leading to their homes is private. The neighborhood road was developed long before current standards that require newly platted roads be built to county standards, which includes being built above the 100-year flood level. This road runs through a low-lying area that is prone to flooding during periods of heavy rain, such as in 2004 when four tropical storms moved through the state. At a meeting with residents earlier this month, county officials offered to clear the road by pumping water that now covers the road into Lake Rousseau. Since that time, officials have obtained a pump and piping from the Southwest Florida Water Management District and pumping is expected to begin this week. However, removing water only provides a temporary solution, because the road goes through a low-lying part of the subdivision, and will flood again during periods of heavy rain. The long-term solution is to raise the road, but to do that, residents will either have to pay for the work themselves, or agree to a special assessment to pay the county for improvements. This remains an unresolved issue, though county engineering officials said discussions are ongoing. It would be one issue if the problems with this particular road were unique in Citrus County, but they are not. There are miles of unpaved roads in the county that were put in by either individuals developing their own property or a developer selling lots. These roads vary in quality. In some instances, people buying property along these roads were promised they would eventually be paved. Many of these promises were hollow and the roads remain unpaved. The cautionary tale from this incident is that anyone buying property should do basic research on whether the property or the road leading to it is subject to flooding. This is information that can be easily obtained, and if an individual does not know how to do the research, they can go to the county or to the water management district for help in how to find this information. A second caution is anyone buying property on an unpaved road should expect it to remain unpaved unless they are willing to join with their neighbors and shell out money to make it happen. Private roads are just that: they are private, and they are not maintained or improved by the county unless residents pay for this improvement. As far as Wahoo Trail is concerned, we encourage residents and county officials to continue working together to find a long-term solution that will benefit everyone who uses this road on their way to and from their homes.

I have several balls signed by baseball players from the s.Curious headline Im calling to comment on the headline in todays paper (Aug. 28). They put the cart before the horse. Citrus County didnt dodge the storm; the storm dodged Citrus County. Im wondering how many people have picked that up.Undue creditI continue to be appalled at the fact that our Gov. Rick Scott is on TV in a commercial taking credit for him and the Republican Legislature funding adding $1 billion to the education in our state. Its funny because this is the same $1 billion he took away the year before. Now hes taking credit for it. Debt skyrocketingReading the comment on Republican convention funding, saying to use that money to pay off the debt, confirmed my belief that America does not realize how much a million dollars really is. If you could pay off the debt at $1 a second, you would pay off $1 trillion in 30,000 years, and were in debt 15 times that. Wake up America. If you took all the money from those you think are rich to pay off our debt, it would be about equal to taking out a gallon of water from the ocean.More sewers?I have a question relating to the new sewer system that was installed near the Plantation golf course called areas 112 and 113.

Not broken To begin with I have never met the sheriff during my 11 years here and have only spoken to him once after filing a complaint. This complaint was readily and quickly addressed by a personal phone call from Sheriff Dawsy. During my working years I learned you do not change things unless theyre broken or in need ofrepair. The campaign for sheriff seems to revolve around this scenario. Do we replace a sheriff who has built a department that has gained high state ranking for productive and innovative ideas? Should we replace a sheriff who has this county, one of the safest counties in the state of Florida per capita and at a lower rate than most counties? The continued discussion by his opponents seems to center on doing just that, by doing away with much of what he has built. This truly seems counterproductive based upon past performance and present crime statistics. I could not imagine any modern police force without the use of air support in any circumstances, and to consider doing away with something so important in modern law enforcement seems totally out of place and backwards thinking at best. The amount I pay in taxes living in a safe county, seems small by my past standards. After having lived in crimeridden Tampa and surrounding areas for 23 years, I am well-informed about living in high-crime areas. To take steps backward and reduce what I consider to be a well-run law enforcement agency seems totally inept and poorly considered. I see no reason to fix what is not broken. Perhaps adjustments are needed and refinements needed, as with any project, but surely not replacement. Jeff Dawsy has built one of the finer county sheriffs departments in Florida and is highly respected by his peers. Now is not the time to make a change, as I have had a very bad overdose of hope and change already! John Cassell Homosassa Betrayed Lynn Dostal betrays his Democratic voters ( Chronicle, Aug. 18), but where is the surprise? He said this was his intention all along, and this is shameful. When a person declares their candidacy for public office, it must be because they intend to win the election and to serve in the office sought for the good of the people who put them in office. To run a sham candidacy like this is demeaning to the office, to the voters and to the entire process, not to mention to the man himself. Dostal said all along he intended to drop out once he won the Democratic primary, but shortly before the primary, he said he would remain in the race. Was this also a false statement put out for voters who felt that voting for Dostal was a wasted vote? Was it to snooker voters to vote for him while knowing he had no intention of remaining in the race? Dostal received 4,887 votes from dedicated Democrats, apparently thinking he was the best candidate. One must wonder how they feel now. Betrayed? Lied to? Played for fools? There are some wholl say this is expected from a Democrat. Is that what true Democrats believe? I doubt it. The 1,922 who voted for Goocher must think the 4,887 are chumps but they wasted their vote as well since this was a non-race. When an American goes to the polls they vote on the candidate they believe will do the best job for them. They should not have to wonder if their vote for one candidate is really a vote for another because one is a shill. Doesnt the average American have a low enough opinion of politicians to have to wonder if a candidate really wants the position, or if this is just another political scam? Lynn Dostal shame on you for your sham campaign! Harry Cooper Hernando Muddying water Kathy Dobronyis letter in the Aug. 19 Chronicle is an attempt by the Democrats to muddy the waters with a new and different fair share strategy. Notice its now the top 2 percent that arent paying their fair share. The top 1 percent pays 38 percent of all federal income taxes. The top 10 percent pays 70 percent of all federal income taxes. The bottom 47 percent pays nothing. Since those numbers are becoming well known and understood, they shifted the jargon to say the top 2 percent arent paying their fair share. The top 2 percent are paying 50 percent of all federal income taxes. The claim that isnt fair defies all common sense, and most people recognize it for what it is, class warfare. The Democrats are using this issue in an attempt to buy the votes of the 47 percent who pay no taxes. Its all about staying in office. Its not about fixing any of the fiscal problems facing this country because even the Democrats know that the amount of money they are talking about is just a drop in the bucket. The Democratic/progressive/socialist leaders are firmly resolved to drive the bus off the cliff and build a new socialists society from the ashes of the crash, and any of them that deny that are either a liar or stupid or both. Kathy distorts facts when she said ending the Bush tax cuts on those whose income is above $250,000 would save the government nearly $1 trillion. The correct number is $800 billion, but its over ten years, and it includes estate and inheritance taxes. The correct number for federal income taxes is $50 billion a year. We are $1.5 trillion short of a balanced budget for the year. How many chunks of $50 billion are there in $1.5 trillion? If you answered 30, you are too smart to be a Democrat. The Democrats have their shorts in a knot over 1/30 of the problem and have no intentions of ever dealing with the other 29/30 of the $1.5 trillion shortfall. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Poor showing Mr. Damato is living in a dream world if he seriously thinks his poor showing in the past election was due to low voter turnout. More realistically, it was due in part to his past decision to use county money, whether it came from the road fund or the operating budget, to reimburse a developer $2.9 million dollars for Ottawa, a road to nowhere the developer had installed for the use of his present and future residents. Also his decision to have a traffic signal placed at the intersection of Ottawa and County Road 486 instead of at where traffic actually exists, at Brentwood and C.R. 486. He was lucky he squeaked by this time; maybe he wont be as lucky next time.

One-third of individuals between the ages of 65 and 74 suffer from hearing loss. In fact, hearing loss is the third leading chronic disability, following arthritis and high blood pressure. And yet the full impact of hearing loss is often not communicated to the public. Research concerning the link and impact of hearing loss to Alzheimers, depression and brain function has been published in several research journals. Hearing Loss and Alzheimers A research study conducted at the University of Washingtons Department of Medicine looked at 100 cases of Alzheimers disease compared to the general population. The researchers found that 83% of those hospitalized for dementia had hearing loss. More importantly, once fit with hearing aids, 33% were classified with less severe dementia. There is strong evidence that hearing impairment contributes to the progression of cognitive dysfunction in older adults, says Sergei Kochkin, PhD, Better Hearing Institutes Executive Director. Unmanaged hearing loss can interrupt the cognitive processing of spoken language and sound, exhaust cognitive reserve, and lead to social isolation regardless of other coexisting conditions. But when an individual has both Alzheimers and hearing loss, many of the symptoms of hearing loss can interact with those common to Alzheimers, making the disease more difficult than it might be if the hearing loss had been addressed. If a loved one is displaying symptoms of not remembering dates or appointments, withdrawal, personality changes and inappropriate responses to questions, one of the first steps is to have their hearing evaluated. Hearing Loss and Brain Function The term Auditory Deprivation refers to depriving the brain of stimulation with auditory or sound signals. The term has been used for decades to describe the effects of untreated hearing loss on the ability of the brain to understand speech and other sounds. While the ear picks up and transmits the sounds around us, it is the brain that decodes and processes the signals and gives them meaning. When hearing loss is present, the presentation of sound to the brain is decreased. As the brain receives less sound, it forgets what to do with the sound. Studies published by the VA in the early 1990s showed that individuals fit with only one hearing aid had a decreased ability to understand speech on the ear without the hearing instrument. This decrease in the ability to understand speech is the result of auditory deprivation. The average individual waits at least seven years, according to hearing industry statistics, to do anything about their hearing loss. A simple hearing test could preserve the ability of their brain to understand speech, limit their exposure to possible depression and keep them actively, happily engaged in life.

Well, we were going east in that correct lane and almost hit him. All I can tell him is its better to waste two minutes of your time to go east and then make the U-turn at the next corner where there is no median than it is to waste two months of your time in a nursing home with broken bones because another car hit you. And yes, it would have been on the drivers side that you got hit. So start obeying the rules mister, unless youre deliberately trying to shorten your life. If thats what it is, youre doing a good job at it.Get over it This is in reference to Keep Florida pristine. I am glad you love to come to Florida and enjoy your vacation time in our pristine state. But we Floridians want to walk safely down sidewalks and not become another unbelie vable number in the ever-increasing pedestrians in the hitand-runs of Florida. This is also in reference to the Hot Corner Kids Today. Again, I say I am glad you love to come to Florida and enjoy your vacation, and, in some cases, your retirement. But your retirement should not be my life sentence. You want young doctors to care for your ailments. You want young nurses to watch over you while you are in the hospital. You want all the amenities that the young provided you when you worked up North. Well, guess what? Those amenities come with a price. That price is that we are young people with children. No one asked you to hang your children on a hook so they wouldnt annoy others. The only time you want young children around you these days is if they are your grandchildren or great-grandchildren. Wake up and give yourself a shake. Florida is not the stairway to heaven for everyone who lives here. You have retired in one of the 48 lower states. You have not retired in a state where everyone is over 55 or retired. Its not all about you. Get over yourself or move to The Villages.Bad policy Twenty-eight million gallons of water coming out of Kings Bay a year to a company in Ocala and all this water leaving our county with nothing to show for it and Swiftmud thinks its OK because its state policy? Another bad policy, to say the least Why (arent) our commissioners saying anything about this? This should be front page.Manage trips This is in regards to the Convention funding. If we took all the money the president spent flying his dog and his family on vacations in the 747 separately and all the money, the taxpayers money he spent going around on all the political convention things ahead of time, this debt would have been paid way before the convention ever took place.

Depression forms in AtlanticMIAMI The 13th tropical depression of the Atlantic hurricane season has formed far out in the ocean and is posing no threat to land. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said the depression was located 1,350 miles northwest of the Cape Verde Islands on Monday afternoon and had maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. It was creeping northwest at 3 mph and was expected to continue in a northwesterly direction with no immediate threat to land. The center said the depression could strengthen into a tropical storm by Tuesday. 1812 again Associated Press Members of historic clubs wearing 1812-era uniforms take part Sunday in a staged battle re-enactment to mark the 200th anniversary of the battle of Borodino, in Borodino, about 70 miles west of Moscow. The Battle of Borodino in 1812 was the largest and bloodiest single-day action of the French invasion of Russia. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEF N ATION & W ORLD Page A10 TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated PressPESHAWAR, Pakistan A suicide car bomber rammed into a U.S. government vehicle in the northwestern city of Peshawar on Monday, killing two Pakistanis and wounding more than a dozen including two Americans in one of the worst attacks against the U.S. in Pakistan in recent years, officials said. The bombing was a vivid reminder of the danger of operating in Pakistan, especially in the northwest where Taliban and al-Qaida militants are strongest. The U.S. has persisted because its work in Pakistan is seen as key to countering militants who threaten American interests in neighboring Afghanistan and elsewhere. Insurgents have carried out scores of bombings in Peshawar in recent years, but attacks against American targets have been relatively rare because of extensive security measures by the U.S. government ones that diplomats sometimes complain limit their effectiveness and ability to move around. The U.S. said it would review its security procedures following Mondays attack, which was condemned by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. We pray for the safe recovery of both American and Pakistani victims, and once again we deplore the cowardly act of suicide bombing and terrorism that has affected so many around the world, Clinton said during a visit to Indonesia. The armored SUV from the U.S. Consulate in Peshawar was attacked as it traveled through a heavily guarded area of the city that hosts various international organizations, including the United Nations. It was unclear how the bomber penetrated the area and knew which vehicle to attack. The car driven by the bomber was packed with 240 pounds of explosives, police said. The blast ripped apart the SUV tossing its engine at least 20 feet away and started a raging fire. Rescue workers and residents rushed to put out the fire and pull away the dead and wounded. All that was left of the SUV was a charred mass of twisted metal with a red diplomatic license plate. The SUVs driver, Atif Nawaz, said the blast knocked him out. When I came to my senses, I jumped out of my car and screamed, What happened? said Nawaz, whose face and hands were badly burned. The attack killed two Pakistanis and wounded 19 other people, including police who were protecting the Americans, said senior police officer Javed Khan. Two Americans and two Pakistanis working at the U.S. Consulate in Peshawar were among the wounded, said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, who called the attack a heinous act. Bomber kills 2, wounds 2 in Pakistan U.S. vehicle targeted Associated PressTOLEDO, Ohio Parades, picnics and politicians celebrated the American worker on Labor Day, with President Barack Obama seeking votes from Ohio union members and rivals for Senate seats marching in Massachusetts and Virginia. But for many, Mondays holiday was a last chance to enjoy a final summer cookout, roller coaster ride or day at the beach. Or perhaps even a stroll from Michigans Upper Peninsula to its Lower Peninsula along the longest suspension bridge in the Western Hemisphere. In Buena Vista, Va., a small town on the western slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains, marchers dodged downpours from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac in a traditional parade featuring vintage stock cars and both candidates in the U.S. Senate race. Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican George Allen walked the 1.5-mile route separately. There was a 5-mile march in Michigan, led by Gov. Rick Snyder. He and thousands of people walked across the Mackinac Bridge linking the states Upper and Lower peninsulas in a popular Labor Day tradition. Snyder set a brisk 12minute-per-mile pace in the walk, which runs from St. Ignace in the Upper Peninsula to Mackinaw City. Labor Day is the one time pedestrians can use the bridge across the Straits of Mackinac where Lakes Huron and Michigan converge. The walk was a blast because youre with thousands of Michiganders, Snyder said in a telephone interview after arriving in Mackinaw City. Several hundred people lined streets in Buffalo, N.Y., to cheer members of about 50 unions, as well as Irish step dancers, a high school marching band and Santa Claus and Abe Lincoln impersonators. In other Labor Day events: Hundreds of unionized janitors from eastern Massachusetts rallied on Boston Common for more work, calling it crucial to building the middle class. The march came as the janitors contract is set to expire at the end of the month. In Rhode Islands capital, about 200 union members, students and Occupy Providence members marched from Brown University to the citys financial district, arguing that educational and financial institutions must help fix the economy and rebuild the middle class. Thousands of union workers packed Chicagos Daley Plaza to show support for the citys teachers in contract talks with the school district, one day before the start of classes for most public school students and a week before a threatened strike.

Rick Snyder led thousands of walkers and runners across the bridge in one of Michigans most popular Labor Day traditions. Associated PressMEXICO CITY As he nears the end of his six-year term, Mexican President Felipe Calderon leaves his country with a better-armored economy and also more armored cars. Calderon delivered his final state-ofthe-nation speech on Monday, trying to cement his legacy as the president who stabilized the economy and took on the countrys entrenched organized crime groups, putting Mexico on the road to rule of law. He boasted of expanding and cleaning up the federal police, putting nearly $160 billion in international reserves and creating more than 2 million jobs, twice the number during the term of his predecessor, Vicente Fox. Its been our generations job to assume the costs and risks of making urgent changes in politics and security, he said in the speech at the National Palace. The reform has begun to bear fruit, but real results will only be seen in the future. Still, the short-term verdict on the Calderon administration is decidedly mixed, starting with the fact that violence-weary voters in the July national elections were so weary of his tenure that they kicked his party out of the presidency and brought back the long-ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI. Mexico is a long way from having strong rule of law still, and a solid economic base has not necessarily led to the kind of jobs that people hope to have, added Andrew Selee, director of the Mexico Institute, a Washington-based think tank. Its a wellmanaged economy, but its not a dynamic economy. And thats the legacy. The sale of armored vehicles in Mexico has at least doubled since Calderon took office and the homicide rate has soared, with decapitations and mass slayings so common they often no longer make the front pages of national newspapers and with local papers often too intimidated to cover them at all. Government statistics show 21,500 homicides in the first half of 2012, compared to about 25,000 for the entire year of 2007, Calderons first full year in office. Mexican president gives farewell address Associated PressBEIRUT The Syrian regime said Monday there will be no dialogue with the opposition before the army crushes the rebels, the latest sign that President Bashar Assad is determined to solve the crisis on the battlefield even if many more of his people have to pay with their lives. The statement comes a day after activists reported that August was the bloodiest month since the uprising began in March 2011. There will be no dialogue with the opposition prior to the Syrian armys imposition of security and stability in all parts of the country, Information Minister Omran al-Zoebi told reporters at a news conference in Damascus. The opposition has long rejected any talks with the regime until Assad is removed from power. Muhieddine Lathkani, an opposition figure based in Britain, responded to the ministers comments by saying the key to any dialogue will be the departure of Assad and dismantling of the regimes security agencies that committed all these crimes. Lathkani told The Associated Press by telephone that after that happens, there could be a dialogue. Earlier in the day, the new U.N. envoy to Syria acknowledged that brokering an end to the civil war will be a very, very difficult task. Activists on Sunday said some 5,000 people were killed in August, the highest toll in the 17-month-old uprising and more than three times the monthly average. At the same time, the U.N. childrens fund, UNICEF, said 1,600 were killed last week alone, also the highest figure for the entire revolt. The two major activists groups raised their total death toll for the entire revolt to at least 23,000 and as high as 26,000. 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. Last week, Assad said in an interview that his armed forces will need time to defeat the rebels, an acknowledgement that his regime is struggling to defeat the tenacious rebels and another indication that the civil war will be even more drawn out and bloody.

Grossenbacher took control of the top spot from his outside front row starting position just two laps into the race. Sanders settled into second, with Herb Neumann Jr. (98) moving quickly to third. The first of three cautions flew at lap 5 for contact between Drew Brannon (82) and George Gorham Jr. (10). Gorham went for a spin, but Brannon took blame for the incident and tagged the rear for the restart. Grossenbacher paced the field on the restart, while Neumann went to work on Sanders for second. Neumann found his way by Sanders for second, and set his sights on the leader. Lap 10 saw the races second caution for a three-car incident in turn three. Amanda Ferguson (7) made an aggressive inside threewide pass attempt on the entry to the corner. All three drivers quickly ran out of room, sending fiberglass flying. When the dust settled, Andy Anderson (97) had gone for a spin, and Ferguson was missing almost all of her right-side body work. Once back to green, Neumann put the pressure on the leader Grossenbacher. The leader was leaving the bottom lane open, which produced several tense side-by-side racing moments. The third and final caution came at lap 15 for debris from Fergusons damaged body, and slowed the field for the final time. When the green came back out, the top two picked right back up where they left off. Neumann made several inside pass attempts, only to see Grossenbacher drive right back by off the outside of turn two. The longest green flag run of the night now had the leaders in heavy lapped traffic. Lap 30 proved to be the most important lap of the night for Neumann. Entering turn one, Grossenbacher slowed for a lapped car on the outside, and Neumann timed him perfectly on the exit of turn two. Neumann finally made the inside pass stick and got the lead. Neumann went on to take his fourth feature win of 2012, with Grossenbacher coming home second and Sanders holding out for third. Eleven Modified Mini Stocks treated the fans to one of the most exciting finishes of the night. Robbie Storer (9) moved to the lead early in the 20-lap event from his third-place starting position. Fourth-place starter Jessey Henley (3) also moved quickly to second, driving the Curry Roofing No. 3. Henley looked to have the faster car, but couldnt find a way around Storer. The top two continued to battle until lap 14, when the races only caution flew for a spin by Chris Snow (29). Storer lead on the restart, with Henley right in his tracks. With only six laps remaining, you could see the intensity ramp up at the front of the field. Henley was trying the inside and outside with no success, and Storer wasnt slipping a tire. As the leaders came to take the two-to-go sign, Henley took to the inside of the leader off of turn four, making contact with Storer, and sending the leader sliding No lack of drama at Speedway Martone forced to forfeit winnings See RACE / Page B3 Associated Press Rory McIlroy tees off Monday on the fourth hole during the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass. McIlRoy storms back, hangs on, lucks out Associated PressNORTON, Mass. In a Labor Day finish filled with some of golfs biggest names, Rory McIlroy sent his stock soaring in the Deutsche Bank Championship. McIlroy overcame a three-shot deficit Monday in five holes, and then overcame a few mistakes on the final two holes to close with a 4under 67 and escape with a one-shot victory over Louis Oosthuizen. McIlroy joined Tiger Woods as the only three-time winners on the PGA Tour this year, and with one of his wins being the PGA Championship, that might be enough for his peers to vote him player of the year. He also finally built a comfortable gap at No. 1 in the world. Oosthuizen had a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to force a playoff, only it slid by on the right side for a 71. Woods made an early charge to get back in the hunt, though he never got closer than three shots until a twoputt birdie on the par-5 18th gave him a 66. He finished in third place, two shots behind, and earned enough money to become the first player to surpass $100 million in PGA Tour earnings. Phil Mickelson also had a 66 and tied for fourth, along with Dustin Johnson, who had a 70 and likely played his way onto the Ryder Cup team. Brandt Snedeker made a strong case for a captains pick with a 65-67 weekend to finish sixth. Davis Love III will announce his four picks Tuesday morning. Associated PressNEW YORK Serena Williams didnt drop a game in advancing to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open. Roger Federer moved on with even less work when Mardy Fish pulled out of their fourth-round match for precautionary reasons. Fish missed about two months this season because of an accelerated heartbeat and had a medical procedure in May. The 30-year-old Americans third-round match against Gilles Simon went five sets, lasting more than 3 hours and ending after 1 a.m. Sunday. Afterward, the 23rd-seeded Fish did not appear at a news conference. Tournament officials said he was getting treatment, but didnt give specifics. I am really sorry for Mardy. I just want to wish him a speedy recovery, Federer said in a statement. We all want to see him back on tour soon. Williams beat 82ndranked Andrea Hlavackova 6-0, 6-0 in 57 minutes. It was the first time in 62 career victories at Flushing Meadows that the threetime U.S. Open champion enjoyed a double bagel. She was fighting really hard, Williams said. You give people any type of chance, especially in tennis, the match is never over until you shake hands. There is always a comeback available. So I didnt want to give her that opportunity or anyone that opportunity to try to come back, especially her in particular. She was getting so pumped up and she never gave up. I thought that was really incredibly positive. Williams had 31 winners and just seven unforced errors. She and sister Venus play doubles during Mondays night session in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Williams will next face Ana Ivanovic, who is finally back in a Grand Slam quarterfinal more than four years after her French Open title. The 12th-seeded Serb beat Tsvetana Pironkova 6-0, 6-4. Ranked No. 1 in the world in 2008, Ivanovic has struggled with injuries and her confidence since. Italian doubles partners Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci each won to set up a meeting in the quarterfinals. Vinci upset secondseeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 6-4. Federer, in his 34th consecutive quarterfinal at a major tournament, will meet sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych, who defeated 11thseeded Nicolas Almagro 76 (4), 6-4, 6-1 in 2 hours. At least good that I didnt stay that long on court, that I was able to save some energy, Berdych said.

The slugger went 1 for 4 with a strikeout in his first game after being sidelined six weeks with a broken left hand. Gimenez snapped a 3-all tie in the eighth with a two-out grounder that just made it to the outfield for a single off David Robertson (1-5).AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 4, Blue Jays 0 TORONTO Joe Saunders and three relievers combined on a three-hitter and the charging Baltimore Orioles blanked Toronto 4-0, cutting their AL East deficit to one game.

Cabrera then lifted a fly to center off Brayan Villarreal.Rangers 8, Royals 4 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Yu Darvish retired the first 17 batters, Texas hit five home runs and the Rangers beat the Royals in a game that turned testy. Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz homered on consecutive pitches in the sixth inning. Cruz watched his drive sail over the wall, then was hit by Louis Colemans first pitch leading off the ninth. Cruz took a few steps to the mound, but was restrained by catcher Brayan Pena. The dugouts and bullpens emptied, but only words were exchanged. Michael Young answered that by homering on the next pitch. Angels 8, Athletics 3 OAKLAND, Calif. Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer in a three-hit day, Vernon Wells had a solo shot and RBI single, and the Angels snapped the Athletics season-best nine-game winning streak. C.J.

Henley completed the pass entering turn one, but now had to wait for Storer to return the favor on the final lap. Henley survived the last lap and went on to take the victory in his first race of the 2012 season. Storer came home second, and expressed his displeasure with Henleys driving tactics in his victory-lane interview. James Ellis (98) came home third after his horrific crash just two weeks ago. Heat race winners were Ellis and Storer. Nine Street Stocks saw Curtis Flanagan (3) move by J.D. Goff (16) for the lead at lap 3 and never look back. Flanagan took the victory by almost a full straightaway over points leader Bubba Martone (98). Dora Thorne (48) raced hard to make her way toward the front, making a pass on Bill Ryan (33) for the third position with only three laps remaining. The race was tame, and ran the entire 20 laps with out a caution flag, but that doesnt mean there wasnt drama. Flanagan mounted a postrace technical protest, contesting the engine of second-place Martone. Martone was enjoying a pretty healthy points lead in the division, and seemed headed for the championship. After hours of tearing down Martones engine, he was found to have illegal connecting rods in his motor. He lost all points and money for Saturday nights events, and the discovery has severely changed the complexion of the division points standings. The new points leader is Dora Thorne, who now has a 22-point lead over Martone. Martone is now second, with Flanagan in third 45 points out of the lead. This turn of events should make for some exciting racing over the coming weeks. Flanagan was also the heat race winner. This Saturday night is the return of truck racing at the Citrus County Speedway! The Florida United Promoters Truck Series is making its second visit of the season, after the first actionpacked 50-lap event in May. Attendees get two 50-lap races this week, as the Pure Stocks will also be running a 50-lap feature. These longdistance races bring the cars out of the woodwork, and this ones sure to have a strong field. Joining them will be the Sportsman, Mini Stocks, Hornets and Legends. Gates open at 4 p.m.; qualifying will start at 5:30 and the first race will take the green flag at 6:30. RACE Continued from Page B1 McIlroy didnt make it easy on himself. The 23year-old from Northern Ireland had a three-shot lead with six holes to play, and only a clutch bogey putt on the 17th hole kept him from losing all of his lead. Oosthuizen, who had to cope with pain in his right shoulder earlier in the round, came back with two birdies on the back to get within one shot. McIlroy hit a chip over the 17th green into more rough, and it looked as if he would struggle to make bogey. Oosthuizen, however, chipped poorly to 10 feet and missed his par putt, and Boy Wonder calmly sank his 5-foot bogey putt to stay one shot ahead. I didnt finish off the way I would have liked, McIlroy said. But I got there in the end. Im very happy. McIlroy finished 20-under 264 and moved to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup, assuring he will have a shot at the $10 million bonus at the Tour Championship later this month. It was the second time this year Oosthuizen, who won the British Open by seven shots at St. Andrews two years ago, failed to win after leading going into the final round. McIlroy made an early charge with three straight birdies, but the turning point came on the fifth hole when Oosthuizen felt pain in his shoulder on a tee shot that sailed into the trees and led to double bogey. The pain went away on the back, which the South African attributed to an adrenaline rush. As always at TPC Boston, this was quite a show on a late summer day in New England. This is the tournament that delivers duels between Woods and Vijay Singh (twice) and Woods and Mickelson. This time, all had fleeting hopes of winning. McIlroy and Oosthuizen turned it into a two-man race, with Woods lurking until he couldnt convert enough putts. In the end, neither could Oosthuizen. He missed from just inside 10 feet for par on the 17th and from 12 feet on the 18th. McIlroy becomes the youngest player with five PGA Tour wins since Woods, who had 15 wins at age 23. There was other drama at the Deutsche Bank Championship, though it was not nearly as compelling as the top of the leaderboard. Charley Hoffman went from the first page of the leaderboard to an unimaginable collapse until he steadied himself at the end. Hoffman, who was 13 under after a birdie on the eighth hole, played his next nine holes in 8-over par, including a quadruple-bogey 7 on the par-3 11th. He came to the 18th needing a par to finish among the top 70 in the FedEx Cup and advance to the third playoff event next week in Indianapolis. He went over the green in two, barely chipped onto the putting surface, and then ran his putt 12 feet by the hole. He made the putt for par, and moves on. GOLF Continued from Page B1

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Michael Clarke Duncan, the hulking, prolific character actor whose dozens of films included an Oscar-nominated performance as a death row inmate in The Green Mile and such other box office hits as Armageddon, Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda, is dead at age 54. Clarke died Monday morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was being treated for a heart attack, said his fiance, reality TV personality the Rev. Omarosa Manigault, in a statement released by publicist Joy Fehily. The muscular, 6-foot-4 Duncan, a former bodyguard who turned to acting in his 30s, suffered a myocardial infarction on July 13 and never fully recovered, the statement said. In the spring of 2012, Clarke had appeared in a video for PETA, the animal rights organization, in which he spoke of how much better he felt since becoming a vegetarian three years earlier. I cleared out my refrigerator, about $5,000 worth of meat, he said. Im a lot healthier than I was when I was eating meat. Duncan had a handful of minor roles before The Green Mile brought him an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actor. In the 1999 film, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, Duncan played John Coffey, a convicted murderer with a surprisingly gentle demeanor and extraordinary healing powers. Duncans performance caught on with critics and moviegoers and he quickly became a favorite in Hollywood. He owed some of his good fortune to Bruce Willis, who recommended Duncan for The Green Mile after the two appeared together in Armageddon. Born in Chicago in 1957, Duncan was raised by a single mother whose resistance to his playing football led to his deciding he wanted to become an actor. But when his mother became ill, he dropped out of college at Alcorn State University, and worked as a ditch digger and bouncer to support her. By his mid-20s, he was in Los Angeles, where he looked for acting parts and became a bodyguard for Will Smith, Jamie Foxx and other stars. The murder of rapper Notorious B.I.G., whom Duncan had been hired to protect before switching assignments, led him to quit his job and pursue acting full-time.

The veteran comic, whose new show gets a jump on the fall season today, was first approached about a show three years ago, when his first book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, was on the best-seller lists. Associated Press NEW YORK S teve Harvey played hard-toget before deciding to become a daytime television talk-show host. The veteran comic, whose new show gets a jump on the fall season Tuesday, was first approached about a show three years ago when his first book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, was on the best-seller lists. The television production company Endemol thought the idea of Harvey giving women advice from a mans point of view made a perfect theme. Harvey said no, thanks. One of the original Kings of Comedy thought late-night was a better place for him on TV. Daytime is more sedate. He had a thriving stand-up career he wasnt ready to give up and a popular morning radio show broadcast across the country. Harvey also thought his suitors were trying to limit him. They just wanted to make a relationship show and I didnt think that was rich enough, Harvey said. I dont think you can do five years, five days a week just talking about who likes who. Harvey instead signed on as host of the game show Family Feud. His success there made producers want him more, said David Goldberg, chairman and CEO of Endemol North America. Goldberg tried again, and this time sealed the deal. Steve Harvey is Endemols first-ever talk show in the U.S., and it is competing in a tough market with new talk shows also starting this fall starring Katie Couric, Ricki Lake and Jeff Probst. A partnership with NBCs top stations, where Harveys show will air back-toback with Ellen DeGeneres, gives him a fighting chance. Harvey now feels more comfortable with the idea of trying daytime. He should: There are few surer routes to riches in the television business than a successful syndicated show. He said he also feels more comfortable asserting himself in molding the shows direction. Look, I was leery about being able to maintain who I am, he said. Not so much the edginess, but I really wanted to be frank on TV. I really wanted to say what I say. Im happy if youre a guest on my show, but if you sit over there and say something that I dont think is cool for me or my listeners, Ive got to reserve the right to say so. Just because youve got this book doesnt mean youre right about everything. Harvey said he has pushed show producers to go beyond the theme of his book in exploring ideas. One that hes borrowed from his radio show is about forgiveness, asking people carrying a longtime grudge to unburden themselves. Overprotective parents, adult children who have moved back in with their parents and people who share too much information about their children online are among the topics addressed on Steve Harvey during the shows first week. Harvey, a father of seven, can draw on plenty of experiences. Ive been unemployed, homeless, had a lot of jobs, been dirtpoor and out of it and been pretty successful, he said. Married a few times, bad credit, good credit, tax troubles, no tax troubles. Ive just about been through it all. Never been a drug user, but other than that, Ive had a pretty nice slice of life. He wrote his book on the advice of his daughters, who would be mortified when Harvey would give the third-degree to their dates but have come to learn even if it took some time that dads assessments were spot on. The young dont have it figured out yet, but life repeats itself, he said. You can text a girl, you can Skype a girl, you can Facebook a girl, but guess what? he said. Youre going to eventually have to take her to dinner. Youre going to have to look across the table and youre going to have to know what to say. Thats really what it comes down to, and that never changes. Harvey, 55, is a comedian, but as a talk-show host is not trapped in that persona, Goldberg said. The show really is aimed to entertain, for people to have fun and for people to always come away with something, he said. Harvey faces a crowded marketplace, but will be helped by the pairing with DeGeneres and an aggressive promotional campaign that included advertisements during the Olympics, said Bill Carroll, an expert in the syndication market for Katz Media. The persona hes helped create through his books should also benefit Harvey. You have to have some other reason to spend time other than hes a likable guy, he said. Carroll wasnt particularly concerned with Endemols rookie status in the genre. Its a worldwide company with plenty of successes in the U.S., including Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Wipeout and Big Brother. I liked Dave Goldberg immediately, Harvey said. I knew they had never done a talk show before, but they know how to win. The show will be recorded in Chicago in the same building where Harvey will broadcast his radio show starting at 5 a.m. local time. When thats done, hell work out, take a meeting and prep to record one or two talk shows. Harvey will keep doing Family Feud, which records in Atlanta during two intense months of work in the spring. He officially retired from live stand-up shows after an Aug. 2 performance in Las Vegas. It was, Harvey said, the hardest career decision hes ever made. How do you give up something that has defined you for 27 years? he asked. And youve been successful at it. I can go and sell out an arena in any major city in this country and earn a living. Im going to stop doing that and take a shot at doing a TV show? Yet he figures hes accomplished all he can in the stand-up realm, and its hard to keep it going with all the travel. I had to let something go to fit something else in, he said.

New breed of doctors Associated Press Leana Wen, of Boston, left, who is doing her medical residency in emergency medicine at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Womens Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, speaks Aug. 14 with Josh Kosowsky, clinical director of emergency medicine, in the emergency de partment at the hospital in Boston. Wen chose emergency medicine because the hours are more flexible than those of primary care physicia ns. Forget Marcus Welby, M.D.: Todays medical professionals want a real life L INDSEY T ANNER AP Medical Writer CHICAGO D ont call todays young doctors slackers. True, they may shun a 24/7 oncall solo practice and try to have a life outside of work. Yet they say theyre just as committed to medicine as kindly Marcus Welby from 1970s TV, or even grumpy Dr. House. The practice of medicine is in the midst of an evolution, and millennial and Gen X doctors seem to be perfectly suited for it and in some ways may be driving it. The federal health care law is speeding some of these changes, too. Its a fortunate accident, said economist and health policy expert Robert Reischauer. The two will reinforce each other. These doctors embrace technology and teamwork. They like electronic medical records and smartphone apps. And they like sharing the load with other doctors on the team. Emal Nasiri and Leana Wen are part of the new breed. Nasiri, 32, is a medical resident at the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa. He likes the idea of working in a large health plan group where doctors, specialists and other medical staff work as teams, with easy access to patients electronic medical records. That kind of setup is more likely to be wired than smaller practices, and Nasiri cant imagine working without his iPad. The older guys carry around little pharmaceutical books when going room-toroom visiting hospitalized patients, Nasiri said. He thinks thats less efficient than being able to quickly view patients electronic charts and online drug information. Wen, 29, will soon finish a residency in emergency medicine at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Womens Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. Shes also a newlywed whose husband is an information technology project manager. I want to have a balanced life that includes having time for my family, she said. She chose emergency medicine because the hours are more flexible than those of primary care doctors. That will allow her to work part-time in the ER and follow her other passions teaching, research, writing and blogging about empowering patients to get the best medical care. Wen finds her smartphone as handy as her stethoscope. Its apps help her quickly figure out proper medicine doses for critically ill patients, or translate medical H EALTH & L IFE Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Exercise and cancer O ne of the common side effects of cancer treatment is fatigue, or feeling weak or tired. In general, the common sequel to feeling tired is to take a rest. This makes sense when you do too much work and muscles are tired, and that time resting the muscles gives back energy. Does this make sense for cancer patients? A growing body of evidence suggests exercise helps improve survival, prevents declines in fitness, improves outcomes (e.g., reduces fatigue and emotional distress), and reduces the risk for certain cancers. Two such studies came out recently. In the first study of cancer patients (55 percent had prostate cancer and 32 percent had breast cancer), those who participated in aerobic exercise programs had significantly less fatigue and more vigor. In another study, the researchers looked at 40 trials of almost 3,700 cancer survivors who were randomized to an exercise program or to a control group. Physical activity included strength training, resistance training, walking, cycling, yoga, etc. They found that exercise improved quality of life, emotional well-being and social functioning. As per Dr. EdwardL. Giovannucci from Harvard University, Even though direct effects of physical activity on cancer are not definitely proven, given that physical activity is generally safe, improves quality of life for cancer patients, and has numerous other health benefits, adequate physical activity should be a standard part of cancer care. Exercise is not only important for cancer survivors or cancer patients; it is also extremely helpful in the common person to prevent cancer. Decreased physical activity appears to increase the risk for cancer. More than 60 percent of U.S. adults are not regularly active, including 25 percent who are almost entirely sedentary. It is estimated that a sedentary lifestyle is associated with 5 percent of See GANDHI / Page C8 T he public might not be aware of this, but not all doctors are physicians and not all health care providers have a full medical license. A fully licensed physician is either an M.D. or a D.O. Generally speaking, these physicians have a full license and are able to care for patients in the office, unsupervised by others and provide medical and surgical care in the hospital setting. This includes having privileges to admit and take care of patients. Over the years, things have changed that have necessitated doctors having helpers or assistants to provide care to patients This might include a situation where a doctor is practicing in a rural area and is unable to attract another fully licensed physician, but might use a physicians assistant or a nurse practitioner to help care for his patients and make sure their treatment is not delayed. This is becoming quite common and, realistically, will continue, as there is a large increase in the U.S. population. There are a number of people approaching retirement age, and as they are getting older, they are more likely to have more complex medical problems. Unfortunately, there are not enough doctors to go around. Are all doctors physicians? G ood morning! I hope you had a safe and happy Labor Day! It may still be hot outside, but its not too early to think about flu season and prevention. Although winter is the most common flu season in our part of the world, with January being a peak month, occurrences can begin as early as October. This is why it is important to get a flu shot early. Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may experience vomiting and diarrhea as well. Remember however, you can have the flu and respiratory symptoms without a fever. In Citrus County, over 17,000 people are 65 years and older. These citizens are at greater risk of severe complications from the flu because their immune defenses become weaker over time. Every year, deaths and hospitalizations due to the flu rise at record rates with this demographic. How can you keep from becoming a statistic? Get a flu shot as soon as possible. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available, because it still takes approximately two Get jump on flu season See LUCAS / Page C8 See GRILLO / Page C8 Dr. Denis Grillo EAR, NOSE & THROAT Section C TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE INSIDE Sally Borland/ Page C2 Richard Hoffmann / Page C3 Katie Lucas NATURE COAST EMS 000CFLH Little to no out of pocket expense for most Medicare Patients with secondary insurances.

Q : I take Propecia for hair loss and have experienced some sexual side effects. If I stop taking the drug will these side effects go away? A: Male pattern baldness is a very common condition. Hair loss in males may start in the late teens or early 20s and, by the age of 35 to 40, about 66 percent of male Caucasians will have some degree of hair loss. It is commonly found in the same family and is probably due to a persons genetic makeup and hormones produced. The hair loss usually begins in the front sides on the top of the head and may be extensive, depending on the persons age at the time it starts. It is now thought that hair loss is due to a hormone called dihydrotestosterone or DHT, which adversely affects the hair follicles where hair grows. Propecia (finasteride) taken as a 1 mg tablet once daily is approved to treat male pattern hair loss, also known as androgenic alopecia. Finasteride, the active ingredient in Propecia, is also approved to treat men with an enlarged prostate or BPH, but at a much higher dose. Finasteride works by blocking an enzyme that converts the hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone in the prostate gland, liver and skin. This leads to a significant reduction in DHT in the scalp, which is believed to cause hair loss in men. Unfortunately, like all drugs, Propecia can cause adverse effects in some men, including sexual side effects. These sexual side effects can include erectile dysfunction, libido disorders, ejaculation disorders and orgasm disorders. Recently (2012), a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests sexual dysfunction associated with Propecia use may last for many months or even years in some men, even after the medication is discontinued.

One declarer in six spades went down two, the two in game won 11 tricks, and one South in slam got home. How should South play in spades after West starts with the heart king and another heart? North has an awkward opening bid. It is strong enough for two clubs, but the likely start of two clubs two diamonds three diamonds risks consuming too much space. And if that had happened, what would South have bid next? In theory, three spades would show at least a five-card suit. So North opens one diamond, hoping to get past this round. Then, when South responds one spade, North has another problem. But since he has only three losers, it is hard to criticize his use of Blackwood. To find the right road to 12 tricks, count winners. Here, South must take three spades, four diamonds, two clubs, two heart ruffs on the board and a diamond ruff in hand. Declarer ruffs at trick two, cashes the diamond ace, ruffs a diamond, ruffs a heart, draws trumps, and claims.

We recently went on a cruise with them, along with my husbands brother and niece and her live-in boyfriend. At one point, my oldest daughter didnt feel well, so I took her back to the cabin for a couple of hours. When we found the rest of the family, they were having a drinkfest right in front of our 14-year-old daughter and 12year-old son. Not only that, but they were buying alcohol for the niece and her boyfriend, both of whom are under 21. From the looks of the empties on the table, this had been going on for the entire two hours. Most of them were drunk. Mind you, my husband was taking part, as well, which infuriated me. But I was even angrier with my mother-in-law, because I feel that women should be protectors of their children and grandchildren, instead of enablers. My mother-in-law even made a point to tell our daughters that the niece had been living with her boyfriend for more than a year, which seemed to put her stamp of approval on the arrangement. My kids didnt know this, nor did they need to. They dont live near their cousin. My mother-inlaw is well aware of the values we teach, but if I say anything, she says Im judging her and being disrespectful. We spent very little time with the family for the rest of the trip because they wanted to party and we wanted a more wholesome environment. How do we handle this type of situation when it comes up again? Kids First Dear Kids: Please understand that you cannot control what other people do, only how you respond. You also cannot control every environment, so use these situations as learning experiences. Talk to your kids calmly about whats going on and how you feel about it. Dont vilify your in-laws, but be prepared for their continued inappropriate behavior. Your kids undoubtedly will encounter other such situations when you are not around, and the hope is that they will remember the good judgment and values you have taught them. And please stop blaming your mother-in-law. Your husband should have been the protector of his own children. Dear Annie: My wifes uncle had a laryngectomy a few years ago. He now breathes through the stoma in his throat and also discharges phlegm through it. He doesnt cover the opening with mesh. I hate to sound uncaring, but he constantly coughs into a tissue that he then lays on our countertops, dining room table or wherever else. This is not only unsanitary, but gross. When he leaves, we have to use antibacterial wipes on everything he touched. If we were to say anything to him about this, he would be upset and probably not speak to us again. We are running out of excuses to avoid his visits and hope he reads your column and makes the connection. Germ Concerned Dear Germ: Someone who uses a tissue to expel anything should not leave it around, especially on a surface where food is served or where others have to dispose of it. This is simple courtesy. The next time your uncle visits, discreetly place a small wastebasket near him for his convenience. Dear Annie : This is in response to Disappointed in Ohio, whose girls group was resentful when one of the women began to bring along her new husband. I once belonged to such a group of retired women, which we named the Silver Belles. The time came when the husbands also retired, and sometimes, one of us would ask to bring our husband along. Instead of resenting it, we welcomed them and began to call our group the Silver Belles and Beaus. Chatsworth, Calif.

That means she doesnt have to wait for a hospital translator to arrive, and she thinks it makes patient care safer. She says those who call doctors with outside interests less committed have a fairly limited world view. We need doctors who just practice medicine, but we also need these other doctors who can improve medical care on the larger scale. It is also better to have those taking care of you to take care of themselves and their families, so I would argue that it is a healthier ... and in some ways, more balanced workforce that is emerging, Wen said. Dr. Darrell Kirch, president of the Association of American Medical Colleges, thinks these new doctors have a broader view of medicine and life than their predecessors, and calls that a positive trend. I see no evidence that indicates that their ethical commitment is any weaker, that they care any less for patients, he said. When Kirch graduated from medical school 35 years ago, he envisioned starting a small solo practice, like many of his peers. A mentor steered him into research and work at an academic medical center. But that was not the norm. A typical model was of a male physician who plunged into medicine and was supported in doing that by a totally supportive spouse or partner who often gave up any work aspirations of their own, he said. Newer doctors often have working partners and both share responsibility for raising children or caring for elderly parents, he noted. Consider some statistics: When Kirch graduated in 1977, only about 20 percent of medical school graduates were women; now nearly half are. One in five male doctors and 44 percent of female doctors employed by medical groups worked parttime last year, according to an American Medical Group Association survey. That compares with just 7 percent and 29 percent respectively in 2005. New doctors in their first year of medical residency training can no longer work 24-hour shifts. Since last year, theyve been limited to 16-hour shifts. Stricter limits began in 2003, cutting residents maximum weekly hours to 80, to improve grueling schedules and reduce medical mistakes. A 2011 survey of finalyear medical residents conducted by national physician recruitment firm Merritt Hawkins found only 1 percent wanted to work as solo practitioners, running their own small medical offices. Rising numbers of medical school graduates are seeking training programs in high-paying specialties offering flexible hours; emergency medicine and anesthesiology saw some of the biggest increases in this years medical resident match program. Those two specialties are popular among young doctors, who on average face more than $150,000 in medical school debt. The others are radiology, ophthalmology and dermatology, all offering better pay and work hours than primary-care medicine. Also rising in popularity are hospitalists, a specialty that didnt even exist a generation ago. For decades, internists and other primary-care doctors have typically provided part-time care for their patients when they were hospitalized. Increasingly, hospitalists have taken over those duties full time. They often work several 12-hour shifts in a row, with an equal number of days off the so-called seven on-seven off model. Dr. John Schumann runs the internal medicine residency program at OU-Tulsa; among the 14 young doctors who finished the program last year, nine became hospitalists, Schumann said. Nasiri, the tech-loving resident, is also considering hospitalist work. Hes getting married in November and says the long stretches of time off would be more family-friendly and allow him to pursue hobbies, including snowboarding. He views technology as improving efficiency so that spending less time doesnt necessarily mean less dedication or worse patient care. More experience with years doesnt necessarily mean better doctors if the older generation isnt keeping up with newer treatment modalities and approaches to patient care. Kirch, of the medical college association, agrees. When he visits campuses and asks students how they differ from his generation, they almost always point to the readiness with which they embrace technology. Hes noticed another trend on those visits. Schools used to show off vast medical libraries, taking pride in how many volumes were sitting on the shelves, Kirch said. Now, less is more. At one of the newest medical schools, the University of Central Florida in Orlando, they point with pride to one small room near the entrance, and in that room they hold the books and journals that cannot be accessed online. Their goal, Kirch said, is for that room to be empty. DOCTORS Continued from Page C1 cancer deaths. For people who do not smoke, exercise is one of the most important modifiable risk factors to prevent cancer. There are many different reasons why exercise reduces the risk of cancer. It includes reduction in circulating levels of insulin, hormones and other growth factors, improved immune function, etc. It does not matter what type of exercise one likes. Examples include walking, jogging, cycling, yard work, tennis, swimming, etc. You need to pick the exercise you enjoy and can do regularly. It is not important which exercise you like but it is important that you exercise regularly. Try to do it at least five days a week for 30 to 60 minutes a day. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and | oncologist. He is volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N. Lecanto Highway, Lecanto, FL 34461, email sgandhi@tampabay.rr.com or call 352-746-0707. GANDHI Continued from Page C1 Physician extenders, as they are commonly called, provide helpful relief for doctors. You may be surprised to find out that when you went to a walk-in clinic, emergency room or even your primary care doctors office, there was an individual who interviewed, examined and treated you who might have had the initials P .A. or N.P behind their name, which designates physicians assistant or nurse practitioner. Both physicians and physician extenders do their best to provide care in the burgeoning health care situation, and physician extenders help in all aspects of health care delivery, including examination, decision-making, delivery of care and even in the operating suite, assisting surgeons in procedures. So, if you see somebody who has some unusual letters after their name, do not be afraid to ask what type of health care provider they are. Most of us are doing our best to provide quality health care for everyone. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.
