A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS It is a concept and marriage that is proving to be a boon for senior residents of the county seeking relief for either being taken by scammers or besieged by unscrupulous salespeople. The Seniors vs. Crime program has been the forefront of efforts to reduce victimization of seniors in the county. Since 2004, the program has known only one leader Don Moran. However, on Aug. 6, New Yorker Linda Lepore replaced Moran, who retired. Lepore, a 20-year veteran of the New York City Police Department, hopes her extensive background in pursuits such as detective work and community policing will translate in her new position with Seniors vs. Crime. I hope to fill Don Morans shoes, Lepore said. Its a great program and I have been impressed by what I have seen since I started, she said. Lepore said she is spending most of her initial days on the job shadowing and learning from the plethora of capable volunteers who go to bat for the aggrieved. The volunteers are amazing, and they bring so much experience with them, Lepore said. M IKE W RIGHT Staff WriterArgenizano! Smith! Dawsy! Webb! Balfour! Himmel! Mulrain. Vick.

Clerk of Courts Betty Strifler is retiring, making way for Citrus County voters to elect a new clerk for the first time in 24 years.

Expansive natural wetland areas can effectively clean up the water that drains through them, for example, into a body of water like the Homosassa River.

Staff to urge corridor study C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff WriterCounty staff will ask to perform a corridor planning study for County Road 491 on Tuesday when the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meets. According to Vincent Cautero, Planning and Development director, county staff has been working on a widening project for the road with outside counsel Fred Busack of the Pennington law firm in Tampa by conducting meetings with property owners along the C.R. 491 corridor to introduce them to the countys objectives. A background report stated: As the meetings progress, staff discussed a range of planning and public works issues that we believe should be addressed through a major study effort. Staff has discussed the parameters of such study with (County Administrator Brad) Thorpe and our intent is to present this concept to the BOCC for their consideration and discussion. These parameters include, but are not limited to, a broad range of issues and concepts from land use districts appropriate for the area to transit stops to flexible development standards.

Pensacola Plastic flamingo accompanies soldier A Florida soldier deployed in Afghanistan is finding comfort in an unlikely Florida symbol a pink plastic flamingo. As a teenager, William Charles Salisbury stole several plastic flamingos from someones lawn. The theft was an isolated blot on his record and his grandfather said the flamingos have become a good-natured symbol in Salisburys life. Louis Riviezzo recently bought two plastic flamingos, painted them in camouflage colors and mailed them to his 30-year-old grandson. Salisbury is an Army first lieutenant who arrived in Afghanistan in July. The Pensacola News Journal reported Salisbury displays them in his base camp and sometimes straps one to his gear on missions. Miami T.S.

From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Post-merger staffing nearly complete P AT F AHERTY Staff WriterThree months after the merger of Duke Energy Corp. and Progress Energy Inc. closed, the post-merger staffing process is nearly complete. Jim Rogers, chief executive officer of Duke Energy, sent a letter to the North Carolina Utilities Commission on Oct. 3 providing an update on the merger integration process. The merger was announced in January 2011 and became effective July 2, making Duke Energy the largest electric power holding company in the United States. Rogers stated in his letter that a top priority was to complete the post-merger staffing process quickly and fairly. Our overarching principle has been to select the best talent available for each job, he wrote. I am pleased to report all business units are on track to complete essentially all staffing by the end of October 2012. Rogers noted that 1,153 employees applied for participation in the Voluntary Severance Program and nearly 450 employees had left the company under that program. He said involuntary severance had been minimized and several business units are hiring. About 130 employees are relocating as a result of the merger. In an Aug. 31 letter to the commission, Rogers said they had named the first three tiers of management using a mix of leadership talent from both companies: 65 percent from Duke Energy and 35 percent from Progress Energy. Senior leaders are roughly 60 percent Duke and 40 percent Progress. The new Duke Energy Corp. has 29,000 employees. Much of the Oct. 3 letter detailed progress in North Carolina, where Duke Energy is based. He did announce that business and financial plans for the combined company for 2012 are complete and planning for the 2013-15 cycle is under way. Senior management will present a preliminary five-year financial plan to the Duke Energy Board of Directors in the months ahead. The company will release its 2012 third-quarter earnings today, which will include the operations of Progress Energy as well as other business updates. Late last month, Progress Energy Florida announced that a decision has not yet been made on whether to repair or retire the Crystal River nuclear plant.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The City Council will do a final vote tonight on an ordinance that caused a split vote among panel members on first reading the issue of mobile vendors ability to locate on vacant lots. During its Sept. 24 meeting, the council voted 3-2 to pick a mobile vendor operation option which among other things has the following provisions: Vendors can only colocate on a site that is open to the public, holds an a ctive business license and is fully developed per the citys land development code; they would be allowed along the rights of way; be self-contained; not be left unattended for more than 30 minutes; and be allowed one temporary sign up to 12 square feet. The ordinance also addresses the types of products that could be sold from these vendor sites. Roadside vendors cannot sell bulk household goods such as furniture, animals, pets, rugs, carpets artwork, paintings, etc., according to city officials. They, however can include food products, vegetable/fruit stands and seasonal sales including fireworks, Christmas trees, pumpkins and any other seasonal sale items as approved by the city manager. Council members Maureen McNiff, Paula Wheeler and Ron Kitchen support the ordinance and believe its a sign of support for brick-and-mortar businesses that are carrying a major overhead burden. Mayor Jim Farley and Mike Gudis are opposed to it because they think its a property rights issue and that businesses regardless of overhead should be allowed to compete freely. The council will also tackle the following issues: The appointment of Judith Simpson to the Waterfront Advisory Board Seat No. 2, Tourism; consideration of a Contract with Public Resources Management Group Inc. in the amount of $19,800 to conduct a water and wastewater utility rate study; consider approval of ordinance granting a non-exclusive Electric Utility Right-of-Way Utilization franchise to Florida Power Corp., d/b/a Progress Energy Florida Inc., for a term of 15 years; consider approval of ordinance, on first reading, adjustment to rates and fees related to Water and Sewer Services; on first reading, consider amending the land development code updating the language for business tax receipts to comply with state statutes; a resolution regarding ground and surface water sources and requesting a moratorium on the issuance of new groundwater consumptive-use permits until Minimum Flows and Levels (MFLs) have been established for local waterways; and discussion of the citys code which prohibits resort housing units in any zoning districts other than commercial waterfront. Resort housing units are defined in the land development code as dwelling units, other than hotels and motels, occupied for less than three consecutive months. According to city officials, letters have recently been received from property owners and a local Realtor expressing concern over this code provision and requesting that the council consider a modification of that provision. The council, serving in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), also will discuss options about the parcel commonly called the Waddington property, the vacant lot on the southeast corner of the intersection of U.S. 19 and Citrus Avenue. The property was recently purchased by Andrew and Jennifer Petrella, who own property nearby. According to the city, the Petrellas do not have firm plans for development of the site imminently. The city says the Petrellas are considering options, but before finalizing their plans wanted to offer the city an opportunity to assume the contract for the price of $396,000. The Petrellas purchased the property Sept. 6 at an auction for $396,000 ($360,000 plus a 10 percent surcharge). The city participated in that auction and dropped out of the bidding at $340,000 because City Manager Andy Houston had a cap of $375,000. The Duke-Progress merger was announced in January 2011 and became effective July 2, making Duke Energy the largest electric power holding company in the United States.

Associated PressMIAMI Millions of uninsured Florida families and health care providers are in a purgatory of sorts. Gov. Rick Scott and the Republican-led Legislature want to privatize the states Medicaid program, but need the Obama administrations permission. The Obama administration wants to make more low-income Floridians eligible for Medicaid, but needs Scott and the Legislature to agree. The sides have been negotiating a package deal for more than a year and wont comment. Without a solution, billions of federal dollars could go to other states and many uninsured Floridians will continue to receive their health care in emergency rooms the most expensive, least effective place. Safety nets, like community health centers, say they dont have enough funding to keep up as more uninsured patients end up in their waiting rooms. So many states are in a bit of a holding pattern until after the election, said Joan Alker, co-executive director of the Georgetown University research center. Floridas Medicaid program currently costs more than $21 billion a year, with the federal government picking up roughly half the tab. It covers nearly 3 million people about half are children and consumes about 30 percent of the state budget. In an effort to cut costs, the state has been trying to privatize Medicaid rather than having government insurance, patients would be assigned to for-profit insurance companies, which would receive a per-person fee from the state and decide what services and prescriptions to cover. A five-county pilot program showed little or no savings, however, but Scott and the Legislature still want to take a revamped version of the program statewide. Meanwhile, Florida has some of the most stringent eligibility requirements in the country. A family of three with income of $11,000 a year makes too much and single residents are not covered. The Obama administration wants those requirements loosened so an estimated 2 million uninsured Floridians could be covered by Medicaid. Feds will pick up 100 percent of the tab for the first three years and at least 90 percent after, along with extra funding for technology costs. But Scott says Florida cant afford any additional costs. State economists said Florida would pass up $2.1 billion in federal money while saving $3.9 million in the next budget year if everyone eligible for the expanded program participated. The states share would increase over time, but even by the 2020-21 budget year Florida would pay $487 million compared to the federal governments $4.2 billion contribution. Legislative leaders have mostly stayed quiet on the issue and it seems unlikely that Scott, a staunch conservative who forbid state agencies from accepting money tied to Obamas health care overhaul, will change his mind. Carol Weissert, a political science professor at Florida State University, said despite Scotts strong political stance theres been relatively little backlash over his decision not to expand Medicaid. We have high uninsured populations in Florida and unfortunately they dont vote, she said. Meanwhile, Sandra Bell, a 55-year-old single mother and school crossing guard from Miami, struggles to pay her $200 a month prescription costs for diabetes and hypertension. She makes too much to qualify for Medicaid during the school year, but qualifies for Medicaid during the summer. Bell has made several trips to the emergency room in the past year because she ran out of insulin. More recently, she visited the ER to get a tooth pulled after developing a painful infection. Florida hospitals admitted nearly 200,000 uninsured patients during fiscal year 2010-11 and their emergency rooms treated 1.8 million uninsured patients thats about 1 in 5. Hospitals absorbed $2.8 billion in uncompensated costs, according to the Florida Hospital Association. Were not talking about spending a lot more money. Were talking about spending the money were already spending differently, said Bruce Rueben, the associations president. Sen. Joe Negron, who heads up health care, said hed like to see Medicaid resemble private insurance where recipients choose from a list of commercial plans tailored toward patients with different needs, including HIV and diabetes. Rather than just saying, This is the government plan for Medicaid, heres your Medicaid card, youll go where we tell you to go, this frees people to be informed medical consumers, to shop around, said the Stuart Republican. Negron said lawmakers may consider a program that Floridians can purchase if they dont qualify for Medicaid but cant afford private insurance. Perhaps there would be state involvement in that. ... Right now, Medicaid is growing so fast in cost that its really inhibiting our ability to try some creative things. As state and federal negotiations continue, more patients are relying on safety nets like community health centers. Experts say the one-stop shop helps doctors better coordinate care for the patients by monitoring them over time, saving money by diverting them from emergency rooms for less-serious issues. Borinquen Medical Centers in Miami has a state-funded ER diversion program with three local hospitals. Florida community health centers, including Borinquen, have received more than $111 million under the Obama health care plan. City and county governments are eagerly accepting the windfall, even if Scott wont. The number of patient visits to Borinquen jumped from 15,897 in 2008 to 26,123 in 2011, a two-thirds increase. But funding only increased by $250,000 during that time, said CEO Bob Linder. The center charges patients $25, even though the average visit costs about $140. More than half of those patients are uninsured. Thirty-five percent are Haitian many who were displaced by the 2010 earthquake, he said. Nineteen year-old Madochee Gregroire is ready to give birth any day and gets weekly pre-natal care even though she is unemployed and doesnt have health insurance. The teen moved to Miami from Haiti after the earthquake. When I came here people take care of you. They know that you need them.

Republican elected to a fulltime constitutional office in Citrus County. Vick, who has worked 22 years for Strifler, has the financial backing in this race, having raised $22,035, much of it in donations of $100 or less. Mulrain shows $775 in contributions, but $510 is his own money. While she is out campaigning, Vick said many people dont realize the race is on the ballot. Everywhere I go, Im asked if I have an opponent, she said. They want to know his name. Vick said she considers it an advantage that the clerks race is so low-key this year. Its so important to be out meeting people and allow people the chance to get to know me, she said. I want them to know who their clerk is. Mulrain acknowledged he didnt know much about the clerks responsibilities before his campaign. He said he researched the job before committing to the campaign. Now he spends much of his campaign time as he did at a political forum Thursday night in Citrus Hills discussing the clerks duties. I always meet people who do not understand the exact duties of the job, he said. So many people do not understand the position. During a forum, Mulrain said he thinks Vick has support of the political establishment. Im a 29-year resident, he said. I realized I wasnt the chosen candidate. Vick told the audience to choose wisely. You will hire the next clerk of the circuit court, she said. Vick said she worked her way up the ladder at the clerks office and hopes to continue as the elected clerk. I love my job, she said. Ive been doing it for a long time.

Among other items of business: On the consent agenda, Cautero will ask the BOCC to approve and authorize staff to prepare an amendment to the Future Land Use Element concerning the commercial node concept for commercial development to be discussed at future public hearings. The commercial node concept has been established to promote wellplanned, orderly commercial development within the county to discourage strip and isolated development, to reduce sprawl and to protect the countys rural character between nodes. Since the commercial node concept was adopted in the Comprehensive Plan of 1989, the character of the roadway network has changed with the future construction of the Suncoast Parkway 2 project, according to a background report. At 5:01 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to decide whether to allow Teramore Development to build a Dollar General store on a three-acre site at the junction of West Dunklin Street and North Citrus Avenue in Citronelle. At 1:30 p.m., the board will present employee service awards and proclamations. It will recognize the employee of the month for August; proclaim Oct. 15-20 as Mediation Week; proclaim Oct. 22-26 as Red Ribbon Week; proclaim its appreciation of the Friends of the Library; declare October 2012 as Friends of the Library Month; proclaim Nov. 3-12 as Veterans Appreciation Week; designate Nov. 12, 2012, as Veterans Day; and proclaim Oct. 9, 2012, as Ryan Fagan Day. The board will present a certificate of appreciation to Edward Shaw, Suzanne Green, and Wal-Mart of Homosassa for the generous contributions made to the 2012 Citrus County Library System Summer Reading Program. The agenda and background materials are available online at www.bocc.citrus.fl.us. The meeting also can be viewed live online in a small digital format. Click Agenda/Minutes at the top of the lefthand column on the countys webpage. The meeting is televised live on cable TV on Channel 622 on Bright House and Channel 9 on Comcast. The agenda is also available beforehand at the Lecanto Government Building and in the Commissioners suite on the second floor of the courthouse in Inverness. The Citrus County Port Authority will meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Citrus County Courthouse, Room 100, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. The meeting will be open to the public but will close to the public for an attorney-client session for the board to discuss a legal case styled Robert Schweickert Jr. vs. Citrus County Port Authority, a body corporate of the State of Florida; and John C. Martin Associates, LLC, a foreign limited liability company (Case No. 2012-CA1339). At the close of the attorney-client session, the meeting will be reopened to the public. According to the agenda, which is available at www.bocc.citrus.fl.us, the port attorney will report about the discussion, direction and course of action in the above-mentioned case as determined in the attorney-client session. Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. The Seniors vs. Crime program was designed as a nonprofit organization of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Attorney Generals Office to aid the vulnerable, especially seniors. The program uses civil action in an effort to recover funds from scams or dishonest transactions. The collaborative program was founded in 1989 by a retired colonel, Vern C. Thornton, of the Broward County Sheriffs Office. It started in this county in 2002. According to the programs brochure, even though its name has seniors in it, the program is open to all age groups with the common denominator being a person who has been taken advantage of or you feel someone has cheated you out of money or not delivered what they promised. According to program officials, as of July 2012, 1,553 cases have been worked by the office; $2,159.736 in funds has been recovered on behalf of citizens and volunteers have logged 25,929. Lepore said a program like this does not exist where she came from, and she hopes to spread the word about it. I dont think a lot of people know about all the things we can do help. The volunteers work really hard for people and its great to see that. Like I said, I am impressed with what I have seen and hope to add to that, Lepore said. Sgt. Chris Evan, who is head of community affairs at the sheriffs office, said Lepore was one of four or five finalists for the job, and she was picked for her impeccable credentials. She is extremely qualified and was the best among very good candidates. Her work as a detective will suit her well in this position. She will help bridge that gap of knowing how to help the community and to provide better services to people. We are glad she was selected, and I have confidence she will do a good job for us, Evan said. Lepore, 52, is married to her husband, John, and has three sons. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Great day for a bike ride Rails to Trails event cruises Withlacoochee State Trail S AMANTHA K ENNEDY CorrespondentB ike lights were on at the Withlacoochee State Trail at the break of dawn Saturday morning for the 12th annual Rails to Trails bike ride that started in Inverness. Riders were accommodated at the start of the ride with food and beverages and booths along the way where they could receive bike repairs or biking equipment for the ride. The ride was open to all people with an interest in biking. The $25 registration fee went back to the nonprofit Rails to Trails organization to help repave and revamp the trail riders were traveling on. Some people traveled 100 miles round trip that day, turning around at the Citrus Springs Trailhead, and others, like 71-year old John Monder traveled 14, simply to stay fit, or try to stay fit. Along the way, at different parts o the trail, volunteers were set up, ready to give refreshments to the riders, in order to maintain safe riding in the Florida heat. Comradery and people are what keep the ride going every year, said Ed Keyes, who was working the registration table. Although some people arent even aware that this long trail exists, new riders come every year to get a taste of a bike ride that keeps others coming back year after year. Its nice to see people getting their bikes out of their garage and riding, said 54-year old Gary Garman. Hopefully, riding their bike will be a continuous thing for them after the ride. President of the Rails to Trails of the Withlacoochee organization, Dennis Rieland and his wife moved to the county for the trail and its recreational value, and have found that giving back to the rails is one way to ensure their success. Riders were geared up and ready to go, with bikes lined up all across the sides of the trails, making a pit stop to check tire pressure and stop to grab a snack and a cup of coffee. Children were getting their helmets buckled up and preparing to take their own bicycling journey, as the ride was open to all ages as long as they had the proper gear to ride legally. Getting people familiar with the trail and getting the word out is the most we could ask for, Garman said.

Private rocket heads to space station M ARCIAD UNN AP Aerospace WriterCAPE CANAVERAL A commercial cargo ship rocketed into orbit Sunday in pursuit of the International Space Station, the first of a dozen supply runs under a mega-contract with NASA. It was the second launch of a Dragon capsule to the orbiting lab by the California-based SpaceX company. The first was last spring. This time was no test flight, however, and the spacecraft carried 1,000 pounds of key science experiments and other precious gear. There was also a personal touch: chocolatevanilla swirl ice cream tucked in a freezer for the three station residents. The companys unmanned Falcon rocket roared into the night sky right on time, putting SpaceX on track to reach the space station Wednesday. The complex was soaring southwest of Tasmania when the Falcon took flight. Officials declared the launch a success. In more good news, a piece of space junk was no longer threatening the station, and NASA could focus entirely on the delivery mission. NASA is counting on private business to restock the space station, now that the shuttles have retired to museums. The space agency has a $1.6 billion contract with SpaceX for 12 resupply missions. Especially exciting for NASA is the fact that the Dragon will return twice as much cargo as it took up, including a stockpile of astronauts blood and urine samples. The samples nearly 500 of them have been stashed in freezers since Atlantis made the last shuttle flight in July 2011. The Dragon will spend close to three weeks at the space station before being released and parachuting into the Pacific at the end of October. By then, the space station should be back up to a full crew of six. SpaceX is shooting for its next supply run in January. Carrying contestNEWRY, Maine A Finnish couple has added to their victories by taking first place in the North American Wife Carrying Championship at Maines Sunday River ski resort. Taisto Miettinen and Kristina Haapanen traveled from Helsinki, Finland where they won the World Wife Carrying Championship for Saturdays contest. The Sun Journal reported the couple finished with a time of 52.58 seconds on a course that included hurdles, sand traps and a water hole. The winners receive the womans weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. For Miettinen and Haapanen, that meant a check for $530. They shared their beer winnings with the secondand thirdplace finishers Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault of South Paris and David and Lacey Castro of Lewiston. Judge as jurorEBENSBURG, Pa. A western Pennsylvania judge spent the day in the county courthouse but not in her usual seat. Instead, Cambria County Judge Linda Fleming sat among 119 other people who reported for jury duty Thursday at the courthouse about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh. Fleming said she felt it was important to serve and not use her position as an excuse to get out of jury duty. Potential jurors watch an orientation video in which Fleming and four other judges explain the process. Fleming said a woman sitting next to her didnt recognize her in the video. Fleming was picked for a 36-member panel assigned to a criminal case. But she wasnt seated as one of the cases 12 jurors after an attorney objected. Fleming said she declined the $9 each juror is paid for the day.Dog, not burglarOREM, Utah Police in Orem, Utah, say a man who thought he was getting a call from a burglar had actually gotten a call from his dog. Authorities in the community south of Salt Lake City say the man alerted police Wednesday after he received a phone call from his home phone on his cellphone. Officials say the man heard banging and scratching noises on the line and figured it was an intruder. Police went to the mans home but didnt find anything missing or broken. The man later called officers and told them he figured out the mystery. He said his dog had grabbed the home phones receiver and apparently hit the redial button while burying it in the backyard. Fake cop ST. PETERSBURG Authorities in southwest Florida have arrested a man they say pretended to be an officer in an attempt to get free food. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies said Joseph Pineda rolled up to a McDonalds drive-through Friday saying he deserved free food because he was a cop. Authorities said he flashed a badge and gun and told restaurant employees he had just come from a sting and didnt have his wallet. Employees called the police. Pineda initially ignored commands to show his hands but eventually surrendered at gunpoint. Authorities said they found two fake police badges and a handgun in the center console. Thirty-three year-old Pineda was charged with impersonating a police officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail. Insect bites PHILADELPHIA When a natural history museum throws a party, it figures some unusual food might end up on the menu. Interested in noshing on crickets, worms and farmraised python? The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia has an event for you. Its hosting an adults-only cocktail party on Oct. 27 called Cuisine From the Collections. While many of the living plants and animals represented in the museums 18 million research specimens already are food for other species, most arent your typical kitchen staples. Other menu items will include seaweed, buffalo and rabbit. The food is provided by the museums caterer and chefs and students from Drexel Universitys Goodwin College of Professional Studies. Tickets are $100 for nonmembers. Proceeds benefit the 200-year-old institutions mission of scientific research and exploration. was the idea for the Homosassa Southfork Drainage Project. The project was born in 1998 after a survey of the mosquito control ditches that carry stormwater runoff from as far away as the east side of U.S. 19 to the headwaters of the Homosassa. That study resulted in an ambitious comprehensive watershed management plan that called for additional treatment of stormwater from those drainage ditches by constructing two wetland treatment systems, one on the northern branch of the Pepper Creek system west of U.S. 19, and one on the southern branch of that creek system east of U.S. 19. Construction of the northern branch system was called Phase 4 and was estimated to cost $3.7 million in 2002. The county acquired money to get the property for Phase 4, but funding for construction became scarce after that, and county officials have been trying to find the money to create the wetland treatment system ever since. They had worked with the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) using legislative appropriations to buy two contingent tracks the Boschert and Fishnet Motel properties which were considered ideal for the project because of the location and because much of those properties was already wetlands. The tract is behind the former Wal-Mart and the current Publix shopping centers on the west side of U.S. 19 in Homosassa Springs. County officials had been hoping the upcoming widening of U.S. 19, which is scheduled in the next couple of years through Homosassa Springs, would allow them to take the next step in the project and finish Phase 4. They had hoped the state, which must acquire land for drainage retention in its widening project, would see the value in combining the two efforts in one system and finish the west-side part of the Southfork project. Though county officials will be able to put in a road connection that was a lesser part of the western drainage project, the state officials werent ready or able to buy into the countys bigger plan, and so the county wont be in a position to finish the long-running Southfork project yet. Thats yet, county officials say, in the sense that they are hopeful they may still be able to entice the state, through land swapping or some other deal, to help finish Phase 4 as the highway project continues north through Crystal River. The DOT recently notified the county of its intention to condemn some of the county wetland drainage system property for drainage retention. When the county made its pitch of an inclusive plan, though DOT declined to be a partner, it did redesign its plan for the drainage retention areas and creation of a berm between them to accommodate the part of the countys project to connect Halls River Road just south of the shopping center to Homosassa Trail. Frink said although the road will help relieve some traffic at Halls River Road and U.S. 19, it wasnt a big priority of the project. Creation of the wetland system is the big goal, he said. As to the DOT condemnation, Frink said there is a restrictive covenant in the deed to the land which the DEP originally insisted upon when the county got the money to buy the property that says no matter who owns the land, it must be used for creating facilities to reduce pollution discharge into the Homosassa River system. He said DOT attorneys are currently reviewing the covenants, though if there was a legal hitch, DEP could release DOT from the restrictions if DEP felt the new retention areas would have a net beneficial effect on the original purpose. So the covenants probably wont change anything, and the county wouldnt want to stand in the way of the widening anyway. Although he had hoped to convince the state to partner with the county to complete at least Phase 4, Frink said the situation did allow the county to raise the issue of funding for the long-unfinished Southfork project once more, and he said he will continue to pitch the project to DOT when appropriate. County staff has really been pushing, trying to get something done out there, he said, adding that they will continue to look for state or federal funding to push the Southfork project forward. Frink said the county, for instance, will be applying with 23 other Florida counties for a share of the up to $3.6 billion in fines the BP oil company will have to pay to Florida county governments as a result of the federal Restore Act passed in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. Seven northern coastal counties will get 75 percent of that, and whether Citrus would get any money and then whether the money could even be used for Southfork or any other uses, such as expansion of coastal sewer systems, remains to be seen, Frink said, but county officials will keep probing for a way to finish Southfork.

WETLAND Continued from Page A1 Courtesy of Citrus County Public WorksThe Homosassa Southfork Drainage Project plan calls for a 37-acre wetland system that would be used to treat stormwater runoff from mosquito control drainage ditches that connect to the Homosassa River system. The county has acquired the property, but during the past decade has not been able to come up with the funding to create the system. It had hoped the state, which is getting ready to widen U.S. 19 from Homosassa Springs through Crystal River, would partner its needs for drainage retention areas with the countys project. So far, the state isnt ready to partner, though it will create a berm for a bypass that will connect Homosassa Trail with Halls River Road as part of the taking of some of the countys Southfork Phase 4 property. The project and the states proposed drainage retention areas are outlined in the aerial above between the two shopping centers and the Westwind mobile home park on the left.

LEADING DOMESTIC-POLICY VOTES OF THE 112th CONGRESS Voterama in CongressWASHINGTON As the GOP and Democratic presidential camps vent their policy disputes in attack ads and stump speeches, they are rehashing arguments heard many times before by anybody paying attention to the work of the current Congress. Whether the issue splitting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama is Medicare, tax rates, reproductive rights, Wall Street rules, oil and gas drilling, China trade, clean energy, health care or payroll equity, it already has been debated on the House and/or Senate floors and now on the congressional campaign trail, as well. As a result, the White House race and many close-fought House and Senate campaigns across the country sound a lot like one another. But while the presidential candidates are mostly pointing to the future and talking in generalities, many congressional races are dealing with the recent past in a very specific way haggling over incumbents voting records in the 112th Congress. This report spotlights 24 House and Senate votes on domestic-policy issues that have become flashpoints in the presidential race. Many of these issues will or have been discussed in formal White House and congressional debates. Some might even ring a bell with hard-to-impress undecided voters. While most have been prominent in the news, others are less publicized but equally useful in illuminating where federal candidates stand. One House vote covered here (Issue 8, below) put members on record on an issue that Romney has refused to discuss in specifics, the question of whether the popular mortgage-interest and charitablegiving deductions would have to be ended to gain revenue needed to offset tax cuts. According to an oft-quoted study by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, Romney as president would have to eliminate those and other breaks favored by the middle class to help pay the $456 billion annual cost of his economic plan, which is built around a 20 percent cut in personal rates on top of the Bush-era tax cuts. The conservative Heritage Foundation has debunked the study as based on flawed assumptions. Asked by Minutes if the devil is in the details with respect to the homemortgage and charitable deductions, Romney said: The angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs. In another recent overlap of House business and presidential politics, the GOP leadership on Sept. 20 guided passage of a bill that would block the administrations experimentation with work requirements for welfare recipients in a few states. This vote (Issue 9, below) provided fodder for the GOP to portray House Democrats as enablers of welfare dependency, a charge Romney has been leveling against Obama in ads that independent fact checkers have judged to be inaccurate. With Rep. Paul Ryan campaigning both as the GOP vice-presidential candidate and to keep his House seat in Wisconsin, his voting record (below) faces scrutiny nationally and locally. And given Ryans status as the GOP thought-leader in Congress on fiscal issues, its not surprising that policies with which he is closely identified have become major points of disagreement in the presidential campaign. This report covers a vote (Issue 2, below) on the Paul Ryan budget, which is best known for its plan to transform traditional Medicare into a voucher program. The report also covers the 2011 Budget Control Act (Issue 12, below), which is the force behind sequestration cuts in defense and domestic programs scheduled to start next year. Ryan and Obama are among several key players who hatched this draconian law in order to stave off a U.S. debt default that was only hours away. Ryan voted for it and praised it as a big step in the right direction of cutting spending. But he now decries the law in swing states for its impact on the Pentagon budget. Ryan and other House Republicans voted (Issue 1, below) to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board, which was created by Obamacare to use expert advice from outside of government to slow the growth of Medicare costs. The repeal bid died in the Senate. Ryan refers to the board in the presidential campaign as bureaucrats who would unilaterally ration care for those on Medicare. In fact, the 2010 health law gives Congress control over the membership of the panel as well as veto power over its specific proposals to control costs. Starting in 2015, the board will have power to restrain any annual spending increases for Medicare that exceed official per-capita projections tied to factors such as inflation and the Gross Domestic Product. Congress cannot reduce the sum of its proposed cuts but can change individual parts after clearing high parliamentary hurdles. The 15 panel members will serve full-time for six years and require Senate confirmation. House and Senate leaders of both parties will recommend 12 of the 15 nominees and the president will choose the others. Ryan likes to compare his premium support plan for voucherizing Medicare to the health plan for members of Congress and federal workers. Just as the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program offers a menu of commercial policies from which participants can choose, his plan would enable Medicare participants to pick from an array of private plans or stay in what is left of government-run traditional Medicare. Critics note a major difference in how the two approaches protect seniors from rising medical costs. By law, FEHB participants are entitled to have 72-to-75 percent of their premiums paid by taxpayers. By contrast, increases in Ryans vouchers are pegged to a formula based on GDP growth rather than the faster growth of health care costs. A House Budget Committee report says the Ryan plan will allow seniors to enjoy the same kind of choices in their plans that members of Congress enjoy. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., said in House debate the Ryan plan does not give seniors the deal that members of Congress give to themselves, and that should be put to rest right now. The House has conducted 1,552 roll-call votes so far in the 112th Congress, and the Senate 435. This report boils that activity down to the important votes below, all of which have split the parties both on the floors of Congress and in this years presidential and congressional campaigns.

N ANCY B ENAC Associated PressWASHINGTON It can be something as small as positioning the candidate at just the right camera angle or as big as catching the opponent in a campaignaltering slip of the tongue. Every day, the ground troops of Team Obama and Team Romney set out in pursuit of a common goal: winning the day. Moment by moment, hour by hour, they scramble, maneuver and hustle to gain an inch here, a foot there on the opposition. Driving it all is the belief that by stringing together enough small, daily victories, they can help their candidate win the one day that truly matters Nov. 6, Election Day. If they lose the day on Monday, they will work harder to win it on Tuesday. If they lose on Tuesday, theres always Wednesday or Thursday. Until time runs out. Each day opens with a mental push of the reset button. When Obama underperformed in his first debate Wednesday night, his handlers worked all the harder the next morning in briefings, conference calls, television appearances, attack ads and more to frame Romneys debate narrative as dishonest. Republican rapid responders served up rejoinders in real time. Winning the day becomes a state of mind that motivates but also has the potential to distract. Its what fires up the volunteers, the interns, the media monitors, the cable TV guests, the road warriors, the press wranglers, the local party officials and all the others who make up the infrastructure of a presidential campaign and propel it through long, wearying months and even years. It helps you get up at 5 in the morning so that the doughnuts and coffee are ready when the volunteers come in at 6 or 7, says Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant who helped create the 24-hour war room for Bill Clintons winning presidential campaign in 1992. Campaign partisans scour every word from the opposition in search of openings to exploit. Most of that turns out to be wasted effort. But no one knows what one sentence could veer offmessage and end up becoming a Moment that will reverberate in the political echo chamber. Any change in direction is something that we can grasp on to and then use to get into the news cycle and get into the narrative, says Republican National Committee spokesman Kirsten Kukowski, whose emails fly at all hours. The Democrats pounce on Romneys caught-ontape comment that its not his job to worry about the 47 percent of Americans who dont pay taxes. Tweets, email, press releases, YouTube clips fly. The Republicans pounce on Vice President Joe Bidens offhand reference to a middle class that has gotten buried over the past four years. More tweets, email, press releases, YouTube clips ensue. Both incidents have become threads in the ongoing campaign narrative.

ITS HARD TO STOP A TRANE. REALLY HARD. Senate race ads focus on Medicare, Obamacare, debt Associated PressWASHINGTON For critical Senate races, Republicans are turning to the playbook that served them so well in the 2010 elections. Theyre saturating the airwaves with political ads detailing the perils of Obamacare and the nations growing debt. Democrats have added Medicare to the equation, trying to make the case that revamping the government health care program for older people would virtually destroy it. As the Nov. 6 election fast approaches, political strategists and ad writers are pointing to what they believe this years vote is about: defending Medicare, creating jobs and standing up to powerful interests, whether its Big Oil, big banks or big Washington. Each state has distinct differences that shape the messages of each race. In conservative-leaning states such as Arizona, Montana and Indiana, the strategy for Democratic candidates is to seek distance from President Barack Obama and display a strong sense of independence. They need to get voters to forgo casting straight party-line ballots. Republicans have tried their best to reinforce links between Obama and Democratic candidates. In Arizona, Republican Jeff Flakes first ad after his primary victory pointed out that former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona was recruited by the president to run for the Senate as a Democrat, and that while Flake opposes the presidents health insurance overhaul, Carmona supports it. Obamas man in Arizona? Or Jeff Flake, Arizonas man in Washington? Some decisions are just easier than others, the ads narrator says. Linked with Obama In Montana, twins Linda and Marsha Frey contend that a vote for Democratic Sen. Jon Tester is tantamount to a vote for Obama. After all, Tester voted for the economic stimulus package and the health care overhaul, they note. They may not be twins, but they might as well be, the ladies chime. Tester won in Montana six years ago, in part because he was able to convince voters of his independence. Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg has tried to chip away at those impressions by showing how often Tester and Obama are on the same side on the issues. Enter the Frey sisters. Rehbergs team was conducting man on the street interviews for a television commercial when the sisters showed up. Rehbergs campaign manager and media consultant saw the identical twins in their matching outfits and had an idea. They had such great personalities and I started scratching my head and pulled our media guy aside and I said, Dont these two represent what weve been trying to say all along? They are a visual for what weve been trying to say: Tester and Obama are twins, said Erik Iverson, Rehbergs campaign manager. The Rehberg camp wrote a script within the hour and cut the ad that afternoon. It spent more than $100,000 to air the ads during the Republican and Democratic conventions. The more Montana voters associate Tester with Obama, the more likely he is to lose because of the presidents low favorability ratings. The ads effectiveness, Iverson said, is evident in campaigns internal polling. In February, only 1 of 5 voters surveyed by the campaign answered that Tester voted with Obamas position more than 90 percent of the time. Now, more than half do. Rehberg wins handily with that group of voters. Democratic distance To have any chance of winning, its critical for Democratic candidates in those conservative states to display their independence. In Indiana, Democrat Joe Donnelly explains in an ad that he would work across party lines to extend all the income tax cuts passed under President George W. Bush, even those for the wealthy. Hes incorporated a theme within his political ads, casting his opponent, Richard Mourdock, as an ultra-conservative ideologue who doesnt compromise. His ads end with a man named The Mourdock Way yelling out obnoxiously Hey, Donnelly, its my way or the highway. Donnellys campaign spokeswoman, Elizabeth Shappell, said internal polling shows that highway now stands out as one of the most frequently cited words that voters associate with Mourdock, who defeated Sen. Richard Lugar in the primary by rallying the tea party to his camp. Mourdock has responded with an ad of his own, called teammate. Richards a great teammate and hell work with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs, Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman says in the ad.Health care issuesThe health care overhaul that Congress passed in 2010 continues to reverberate in this years elections. GOP candidates say it represents government overreach and theyre working to counter Democratic charges that Republicans are out to eliminate Medicare. For example, in North Dakota, GOP Rep. Rick Berg says in an ad that Democrat Heidi Heitkamp supports Obamacare, cutting $716 billion from Medicare and putting a few unelected bureaucrats in charge of the program. The ad succinctly explains his plan: Repeal Obamacare and its cuts to Medicare. No changes for those 55 and over. And protects Medicare for future generations. Ads on behalf of Democrats emphasizing a GOP proposal that would replace the current fee-forservice system in Medicare with one that instead gives a subsidy to purchase their health insurance. Berg voted for such a system. Heitkamp enlists breast cancer survivor Margaret Gilmour to explain why she didnt support such a plan. Rick Berg is worth $24 million, but he voted to increase premiums by $6,400 to pay for a tax break for millionaires like himself. I wouldnt be alive today if Medicare cost that much Gilmour tells viewers. The $6,400 figure comes from a Congressional Budget Office analysis of a plan the House passed in 2011. GOP lawmakers in the House since have tweaked the proposal to give beneficiaries a choice of buying a private plan or to purchase a traditional Medicare plan. A September poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation makes clear the importance of Medicare in this years elections. It trails only the economy and the deficit as priorities for voters. The poll also found that 55 percent of Americans prefer keeping Medicare as its currently structured, while 37 percent favor a premium support system with a traditional Medicare option of the sort called for by GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.Other ads The two candidates in Florida are talking Hooters. Theres Democratic Sen. Bill Nelsons ad pointing out that Republican Connie Mack is a promoter for Hooters with a history of bar room brawling, altercations and road rage. Macks ad response: Who cares? Bill Nelson, like a typical career politician, wants to talk about Hooters and what I did as a kid. Winning the day as means to winning the election Associated Press U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona testifies Feb. 16, 2005, on Capitol Hill before the Senate Health Committee hearing on drug importation. Carmona, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, is targeted by his Democrat opponent, Jeff Flake, in the 2012 race as having been recruited by the president to run as a Democrat. As election day nears political strategists are pointing more clearly to the elections decisive issues: defending Medicare, creating jobs and standing up to powerful interest, be it Big Oil, big banks or big Washington. Arizona Republican Senate candidate and current U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., speaks Aug. 28 at a primary election night party at his home in Mesa, Ariz.

O PINION Page A10 MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 Business regulation The Crystal River City Councils latest rain dance of regulation and intervention is another blatant attack on private property rights. Now they want to control mobile vendors and the type of wares they can sell, and where. Here we have a council that, without verifiable and measurable proof, deem mobile vendors dangerous to the citys businesses. They really believe by removing these honest, hardworking mobile vendors, the businesses in Crystal River will boom and prosper. Their naivet is astounding. Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist. John Adams Private property rights are the foundation of a free society. Ordinances and regulations serve only to render private property rights useless. Unfortunately, and unless we stop this overzealous attempt by governments at all levels, this fundamental right will continue to erode. Our freedom to own property is being diminished. Real property differs from personal property because it is immobile. When you acquire land you, are also acquiring rights. These rights are also known as the bundle of rights which helps to define a persons interests in the land. However, the exercise of the bundle of rights is subject to limits imposed by the government. This means that private property rights are not absolute. Because of this, governments, especially local councils, commissions, planning board, etc., when imposing limitations through ordinances, usually use the excuse that it is being done for the public good which is not necessarily good, nor is it meant to benefit the public. Private property is now becoming communally controlled and managed. Private property ownership cannot continue to be controlled by government because history has a funny way of exposing the fallacy of government managing anything right. With appropriate and necessary regulations, private property owners can better manage their land. Private management leads to flourishing and more equitable prosperity, employment and greater efficiency in land usage than when government takes over and dictates. In addition to assaulting our symbols of liberty by creating more flag ordinances, and their never-ending attacks on private property rights, they are now attacking free markets and capitalism. What will our local tyrannical czars think of next? Edna Mattos Hernando Good job It is with pleasure I compliment American Legion Post 155 for its leadership in a fundraiser for Marine Josh White. This organization has done many things for its members and our community. This is due to outstanding leadership and I am proud, though not active due to other commitments, to say I am a member of this post. Semper Fi.Neville Anderson USMC (Ret.) Inverness W ho wins Floridas crucial 29 electoral votes in next months presidential election may well come down to who can best woo Hispanic voters. Multiple national polls show an overwhelming majority of African-American voters, and a majority of unmarried women and young voters, will vote to re-elect President Obama. By contrast, more white men and older voters will vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Among Hispanics, national polls show 73 percent of eligible voters prefer the president, up from the 68 percent who voted for him in 2008. But dont think the support among Hispanic voters nationwide translates to Florida. According to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, about 14 percent of Floridas more than 11.4 million voters are Hispanic. These include 592,434 Democrats, 463,298 Republicans and 469,288 independents. While the nations largest Hispanic population is of Mexican origin followed by those of Puerto Rican, Cuban, Salvadoran, Dominican and Guatemalan descent Floridas eligible Hispanic voters have a different profile. Almost a third are of Cuban origin, 28 percent are of Puerto Rican origin and only 9 percent of Mexican descent. Because of Floridas ethnic mix, Hispanic voters here have long favored Republican candidates, in contrast to Democratic-friendly Hispanic voters in other states. This phenomenon is largely due to the disproportionate GOP tilt of Cuban-American voters. In the U.S. Senate race two years ago, for instance, 55 percent of Hispanic voters supported Republican Marco Rubio over independent Charlie Crist (25 percent) and Democrat Kendrick Meek (20 percent.) And in the last gubernatorial election, 50 percent of Hispanic voters chose Republican Rick Scott, while 48 percent supported Democrat Alex Sink. A poll released late last month by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, after the dissemination of the Romney percent dependent upon government video, showed the president barely ahead among Floridas Hispanic voters. The president was leading by two percentage points, 49 to 47 percent within the polls 3.3 percent margin of error. By contrast, non-Hispanic white voters here preferred Romney, 53-42, while African-Americans preferred Obama over Romney, 87-8. The same poll showed 94 percent of Floridas Hispanic voters are enthusiastic and excited about voting in November, compared to 88 percent of AfricanAmerican voters and 81 percent of non-Hispanic whites. That measurement is associated with voter turnout on Election Day, possibly the decisive factor in a close election. Surprisingly, not one word was addressed to Hispanic voters by either candidate at the first presidential debate on Wednesday night. So if you know any Hispanic voters whom you want to urge to vote for your preferred presidential candidate, this would be a good time to sayBuenos dasand have a friendly chat about the issues. The conversation may well make a difference as to whether Obama or Romney carries Florida next month, give or take a chad.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARD Gerry Mulligan .......................................... publisherMike Arnold .................................................. editor Charlie Brennan ................................ editor at largeCurt Ebitz ........................................ citizen member Mac Harris ...................................... citizen member Rebecca Martin ................................ guest member Brad Bautista .......................................... copy chief GOING, GOING, GONE Water quantity and quality inseparable F ollowing on the heels of legislation enacted in 2011 that neutered Floridas landmark growth management laws, the states evolving water withdrawal policy is raising citizen concern and doubt about its commitment to assuring future water needs are met while maintaining, protecting and improving Floridas waters and the habitats they sustain. A recent rule change proposed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) purports to provide more consistent consumptive water-use permitting among the states five water management districts. Instead, as noted by the Florida Conservation Coalition and other environmental groups, it promises to threaten future water quantity and quality. As proposed, the rule change would prohibit water management districts during their compliance reviews from reducing the allowable amount of water withdrawal for previously issued consumptive-use permits in times of drought. Such an inflexible rule falsely assumes Floridas water supply is inexhaustible and water withdrawals have no impact on water quality. To the contrary, the inseparability of water quantity and water quality is clearly evident in the local controversy over the development of minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for the Chassahowitzka River and Homosassa River. The 1972 Florida Water Resources Act called for the establishment of MFLs to protect the ecology of natural systems from significant harm associated with water withdrawals. However, MFL development languished until recently. Initially welcomed by the communities of Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, the fly in the MFL ointment is that significant harm lacks precise definition. With significant harm in the eye of the beholder, residents focus on the daily reality of the rivers degradation, whereas Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) officials concentrate on their modeling data. Concerned citizens contend the transformation of sandy river bottoms to muck, dying vegetation, declining wildlife and barnacles as far inland as the Homosassa Rivers main spring are prima facie evidence that significant harm has already occurred. Conversely, SWFWMD officials view these examples of degradation as anecdotal. SWFWMD officials consider a flow reduction of up to 3 percent for the Homosassa River and 9 percent for the Chassahowitzka River with an attendant 15 percent habitat loss acceptable. Concerned citizens, on the other hand, assert that water withdrawals beyond the current 1 percent flow reduction would cause irreparable harm to the rivers and their habitats. The sharp difference in viewpoints created by the states evolving water withdrawal policy has also raised doubt among concerned citizens that the proposed consumptive-use rule change and belated push to establish MFLs are politically driven to justify development unsustainable by local water resources, not the preservation of Floridas waters. Whether the states evolving water withdrawal policy follows a political path of justifying water transfers, an environmental path of preventing irreparable harm or a balanced path that supports both water quantity and quality, the outcome will define the quality of life in Florida forever.

Associated Press Waitresses dance on tables in a beer tent on the final evening of the famous Bavarian Oktoberfest beer festival Sunday in Munich, southern Germany. Associated PressBERLIN Munichs famed celebration of beer, the Oktoberfest, is drawing to a close after some 6.4 million visitors downed an estimated 6.9 million liter mugs of Bavarian brew some 14.6 million pints. Organizers said they were satisfied with this years event, which opened Sept. 22 and ends Sunday although visitor numbers were lower than last year. Festival director Dieter Reiter said thats because the festival grounds were reduced to accommodate an agricultural fair which takes place every four years, news agency dapd reported. In 2011, the Oktoberfest drew some 6.9 million visitors, who downed well over 7 million liters. The Oktoberfest draws visitors from across the world many of whom try out traditional Bavarian dress. Reiter said: Purely from a visual point of view, there are only Bavarians. Visitors at this year's Oktoberfest, the 179th, mostly came from Germany, neighboring countries, Italy, the U.S., Asia, New Zealand and Australia. While the Oktoberfest's main draw is the towering mugs of beer, many visitors, especially families, often flock to the Oktoberfest for its fairground attractions such as roller coasters.

Union: Agents fired on each otherPHOENIX The U.S. Border Patrol agent killed last week in a shooting in southern Arizona apparently opened fire on two fellow agents thinking they were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire, the head of the Border Patrol agents union said Sunday. The two sets of agents approached an area where a sensor had been activated early Tuesday from different directions early Tuesday and encountered each other in an area of heavy brush, National Border Patrol Council president George McCubbin said. What Sandusky will find in prison HARRISBURG, Pa. Jerry Sandusky will walk into state prison with little more than a watch and wedding band. Hell be able to work a 30hour week to make a few dollars. Hell be able to watch Penn State football but not violent movies. If the former Penn State defensive coach is sentenced Tuesday to a long state prison term, he will find himself far removed from the comfortable suburban life he once led, placed under the many rules and regulations of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. Even Sanduskys own attorney believes that whatever sentence he gets, at age 68 Sandusky will likely live out his days inside a state prison. Arrested moms stay with kids NEW YORK A unique program in New York City allows mothers to live with their children in a private apartment building instead of prison while they serve out court mandates. Five families live in the building, all sent there by the district attorneys office for felony offenses. Some involve drugs, others weapons, and still others violent crime. The program has been lauded as a successful, more supportive and cheaper alternative to prison. But space is running out, and it needs funding in order to grow.Wide recall issued in meningitis case ATLANTA The pharmacy that distributed a steroid linked to an outbreak of fungal meningitis has issued a voluntary recall of all of its products, calling the move a precautionary measure. The New England Compounding Center announced the recall Saturday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted updated figures to its website Sunday showing there are 91 confirmed cases of the rare form of fungal meningitis. The states with reported cases are: Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia.Friends baffled by killing of student MOBILE, Ala. Classmates and friends are questioning why a police officer fatally shot a University of South Alabama freshman who was naked and had been banging on a window at police headquarters. Campus officials didnt give any indication that Gil Collar, 18, of Wetumpka had a weapon when he was shot. A statement issued by university spokesman Keith Ayers said Collar, who wrestled at Wetumpka High School before enrolling at South Alabama, assumed a fighting stance and chased an officer before being shot. Small plane crashes in Antigua KINGSTON, Jamaica A tiny Caribbean airline said one of its small planes has crashed during takeoff at Antiguas airport, killing the pilot.

Israel was still investigating Saturdays incident, but Hezbollah quickly emerged as the leading suspect because it has an arsenal of sophisticated Iranian weapons and a history of trying to deploy similar aircraft. Pope names two church doctorsVATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI urged the worlds bishops on Sunday to try to bring back Catholics who have left the church as he opened a threeweek meeting to reinvigorate the churchs evangelization mission. At the start of the Mass, Benedict named two new doctors of the church, conferring one of the Catholic Churchs highest honors on the 16th-century Spanish preacher, St. John of Avila, and the 12th-century German mystic, St. Hildegard of Bingen. Pension fights foreshadowed in RIPROVIDENCE, R.I. Cities and states around the country are shoring up battered retirement plans by reducing promised benefits to public workers and retirees. All told, states need $1.4 trillion to fulfill their pension obligations. The political and legal fights challenge the clout of public-sector unions and test the venerable idea that while state jobs pay less than private-sector employment, they come with the guarantee of early retirement and generous benefits. Nowhere have the changes been as sweeping as in Rhode Island, where public sector unions are suing to block an overhaul passed last year. The law raised retirement ages, suspended pension increases for years and created a new benefit plan that combines traditional pensions with something like a 401(k) account. Putin portrayed as no-nonsense leader MOSCOW Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a first-person documentary aired on his 60th birthday Sunday that the current generation of opposition leaders needs to be cast aside and he brushed aside concerns the two-year jail sentence for punk bank Pussy Riot was too severe. The documentary that aired Sunday portrayed Putin as a tireless and nononsense leader contemptuous of domestic and international criticism. It also depicts a Spartan lifestyle of daily exercise, plain breakfasts and late-night work sessions. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS N ATION & W ORLD Page A12 MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE From wire reports Turkey, Syria trade fire Associated PressAKCAKALE, Turkey Turkey and Syria fired artillery and mortars across their volatile border for a fifth consecutive day on Sunday, in one of the most serious and prolonged flare-ups of violence along the frontier. The exchange of fire stoked fears that Syrias civil war will escalate into a regional conflagration drawing in NATO member Turkey, once an ally of President Bashar Assad but now a key supporter of the rebels fighting to topple him. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had warned on Saturday that Ankara would respond forcefully to each errant Syrian shell that lands on Turkish soil. Ankaras warning was coupled by an apparent diplomatic push by the Turkish leadership to float the name of Syrian Vice President Farouk al-Sharaa as a possible figure to head a transition administration to end the conflict in the country. In an interview Saturday with Turkish state television TRT, Davutoglu said alSharaa was a figure whose hands are not contaminated in blood and therefore acceptable to Syrian opposition groups. It was not clear whether the Turkish stance was coordinated with other allies, but the candid remarks by Davutoglu suggested some consensus might be emerging over a future role for him. Al-Sharaa, 73, a close associate and longtime loyalist to the Assad family, has been a controversial figure since the start of the uprising. He appeared in public in late August for the first time in weeks, ending repeated rumors that he had defected. The regime has suffered a string of prominent defections in recent months, though Assads inner circle and military have largely kept their cohesive stance behind him. Early on in the uprising, the Syrian president delegated to al-Sharaa, a skilled diplomat, responsibility for holding a dialogue with the opposition. A Sunni from the southern town of Daraa, birthplace of the Syrian uprising, al-Sharaas silence since the start of the uprising made him a prime candidate for rumors that he broke with the regime. The Syrian opposition is deeply fragmented, and various factions would likely disagree on whether they would accept him to lead a transitional government. Associated Press Turkish troops station Sunday at the border gate with Syria, across from Syrian rebel-controlled Tel Abyad in Akcakale, Turkey. Associated Press Noorullah Hamidi, who owns a womens dress shop, poses Sunday with a photograph of his brother Hafizullha, who was killed near the shop while trying to flee street fighting during the civil war in Kabul, Afghanistan. Civil war ahead? Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Nobody wants a repeat of the bloody ethnic fighting that followed the Soviet exit from Afghanistan in the 1990s least of all 32-year-old Wahidullah who was crippled by a bullet that pierced his spine during the civil war. Yet as the Afghan war began its 12th year on Sunday, fears loom that the country will again fracture along ethnic lines once international combat forces leave by the end of 2014. It was a very bad situation, said Wahidullah, who was a teenager when he was wounded in the 19921996 civil war. All these streets around here were full of bullet shells, burned tanks and vehicles, he added, squinting into a setting sun that cast a golden glow on the bombed-out Darulaman Palace still standing in west Kabul not far from where he was wounded. People could not find bread or water, but rockets were everywhere, said Wahidullah, who now hobbles around on red-handled crutches. He goes by one name only, as do many Afghans. The dilapidated palace is a reminder of the horror of the civil war when rival factions who had joined forces against Soviet fighters before they left in early 1989 turned their guns on each other. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed. Fed up with the bloodletting, the Afghan people longed for someone anyone who would restore peace and order. The Taliban did so. But once in power, they imposed harsh Islamic laws that repressed women and they publicly executed, stoned and lashed people for alleged crimes and sexual misconduct. The Taliban also gave sanctuary to al-Qaida in the run-up to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. When the Taliban refused to give up the al-Qaida leaders who orchestrated 9/11, the U.S. invaded on Oct. 7, 2001. Eleven years later, Afghanistan remains divided and ethnic tension still simmers. The Taliban, dominated by the ethnic Pashtun majority, have strongholds in the south. Ethnic minorities such as Tajiks, Hazaras and Uzbeks live predominantly in central and northern Afghanistan. The fear is that when international forces leave, minority groups will take up arms to prevent another Taliban takeover and that members of the Afghan security forces could walk off the government force and fight with their ethnic leaders. Social media among threats to greeting cards Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Say its your birthday or youve just had a baby, maybe got engaged or bought your first house. If youre like many Americans, your friends are texting their congratulations, sending you an e-card or clicking Like on your Facebook wall. But how many will send a paper greeting card? Im really, really bad at it, said Melissa Uhl. The 25year-old nanny from Kansas City, Mo., hears from friends largely through Facebook. Once a staple of birthdays and holidays, paper greeting cards are fewer and farther between now seen as something special, instead of something thats required. The cultural shift is a worrisome challenge for the nations top card maker, Hallmark Cards Inc., which last week announced it will close a Kansas plant that made one-third of its greeting cards. In consolidating its Kansas operations, Kansas City-based Hallmark plans to shed 300 jobs. Pete Burney, Hallmarks senior vice president who overseas production, says competition in our industry is indeed formidable and that consumers do have more ways to connect digitally and online and through social media. Over the past decade, the number of greeting cards sold in the U.S. has dropped from 6 billion to 5 billion annually, by Hallmarks estimates. The Greeting Card Association, an industry trade group based in White Plains, N.Y., puts the overallsold figure at 7 billion. Brian Sword, 34, of Kansas City, said hes definitely buying and receiving fewer printed cards than he did a decade ago, though he still prefers to send them to and receive them from a small group of close friends and family.

Bernhard Langer rallied to win the SAS Championship on Sunday to take the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup points race, shooting a 9under 63 to beat Jay Don Blake by two strokes Four shots back entering the final round, Langer birdied the final two holes to finish at 13-under 203 at Prestonwood Country Club. The German star has two victories this year and 16 overall on the 50-and-over tour. Blake closed with a 68. He needed a birdie on the par-4 18th to force a playoff, but hit a tree with his drive and bogeyed the hole. Mark Wiebe also shot 68 to finish third at 10 under. Langer, who earned $315,000 and leads the Champions Tour money list with $1,818,896, had 11 one-putts during his round, including five of his last six holes. Grace wraps up win at Dunhill Links ST.

Alexander Noren of Sweden (69) was another two shots back in third. Another South African, George Coetzee, equaled the Old Course record that had been set Thursday with a 10-under 62 for a share of fifth place.

Associated PressTALLADEGA, Ala. Tony Stewart tried to block his way to victory at Talladega Superspeedway. It backfired, badly. The big one came on the last lap Sunday, when Stewarts attempt to hold on for the win instead sent his car sailing through the field and triggered a 25-car accident. Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth won under caution, and everyone else was left wondering what happened to cause so much carnage. Its not safe. Its not. Its bloodthirsty, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. If thats what people want, thats ridiculous. Stewart took full responsibility for causing the accident. He had charged to the lead on the first lap of a two-lap sprint to the finish, but got too far ahead of the pack to hang on to any drafting partners.

It was 1-all before a wild final three innings that included a key error by Oakland center fielder Coco Crisp, two game-tying wild pitches and several momentum changes. Alburquerque kept it tied in the ninth when he got Yoenis Cespedes to hit a comebacker with men on first and third and two outs. He gave the ball a quick smooch before throwing to first. I just did it, he said. It was the emotion of the game. I wasnt trying to be a hot dog. Oakland outfielder Josh Reddick wasnt thrilled. We didnt appreciate that.

The last time nine ranked teams lost in one week was Oct. 18, 2008. No team was more impressive than South Carolina. Coach Steve Spurrier has the Gamecocks ranked higher than they have been in 28 years. Have we ever been that high before? How about ? Spurrier asked during his conference call with reporters Sunday. South Carolina reached No. 2 late in the 1984 season. Well, weve still got a ways to go, he added. The Gamecocks have emerged as the leading contender in the SEC to knock off Alabama if South Carolina can get a crack at the Tide. They dont play in the regular season, but could meet in the SEC championship game. But thats a long way away especially with South Carolina heading to LSU next Saturday and Florida the week after. The Gamecocks finish, as usual, with No. 16 Clemson. The Gators havent been in the top five during the regular season since 2009. That was the end of the Tim Tebow era. Year 2 under Will Muschamp is starting to feel a bit like Urban Meyers second season at Florida. Those Gators won the national title. As for West Virginia, this just about sums it up: In the last two weeks, the Mountaineers have allowed 108 points and won both games. Next up for the Geno Smith and the Mountaineers is another trip back to Texas, this time Lubbock to face Texas Tech (4-1).MOVING UP Speaking of Meyer, Ohio State moved up four spots to No. 8 in the rankings after a 63-38 victory against Nebraska in Columbus, Ohio. Everybody knows by now the Buckeyes are playing only for pride because of an NCAA postseason ban. In a year when the Big Ten looks down, Ohio State seems capable of going undefeated. No. 25 Michigan is the only other Big Ten team ranked this week. MOVING DOWN Florida State, No. 9 LSU and No. 15 Georgia all took tumbles in the rankings after spending the whole season ranked in the top seven. The Seminoles loss was the most stunning and most damaging. The Seminoles seemed primed to make a run at playing in the BCS championship game, and the ACC is without another dominant team. IN AND OUT No. 21 Cincinnati (4-0) and No. 22 Texas A&M are ranked for the first time this season, and No. 24 Boise State and No. 25 Michigan are back after falling out earlier. In between is No. 23 Louisiana Tech, which hasnt been ranked in the Top 25 since 1999.

Colts 30, Packers 27 INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck capped a second-half comeback by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne with 35 seconds to go that gave Indianapolis a stunning 30-27 victory over Green Bay on Sunday in the Colts first game without coach Chuck Pagano. Green Bay (2-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Mason Crosby missed a 51yard field goal with 3 seconds to go. Luck then took a knee and time ran out and the team celebrated. Missing was Pagano, who is in a hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia that was recently diagnosed. Luck came through with just what Pagano wanted getting the Colts (2-2) to .500. And they did it despite trailing 213 at halftime. After Adam Vinatieri gave Indy its first lead at 22-21 with a 28-yard field goal, Aaron Rodgers threw an 8-yard TD pass to James Jones to make it 27-22 with 4:30 left before the Colts rallied. Patriots 31, Broncos 21FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady won his latest showdown with Peyton Manning with the help of a career-high 151 yards rushing from Stevan Ridley. In the 13th meeting between the star quarterbacks, and first since Manning left the Indianapolis Colts, Brady directed four scoring marches of at least 80 yards and the Patriots rushed for 252 yards. Brady improved to 9-4 against Manning, He completed 23 of 31 passes for 223 yards and one touchdown and ran for another. Manning was 31 of 44 for 345 yards and three touchdowns but lost a fumble on a third-quarter sack. The fumble led to Ridleys 8-yard run that put the Patriots (3-2) ahead 31-7 with about five minutes left in the third quarter. Manning then threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Eric Decker and 5 yards to Brandon Stokley but Denver (2-3) lost a fumble with 3:42 remaining. Steelers 16, Eagles 14 PITTSBURGH Shaun Suisham hit a 34-yard field goal as time expired. The Eagles (3-2) took the lead on a 2yard touchdown pass from Michael Vick to Brent Celek with 6:33 remaining, but the Steelers responded by driving 64 yards, including a pair of key third-down conversions by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, to set up the winning kick. Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall ran for 81 yards and a touchdown in his first game of the season as the Steelers (2-2) avoided their first twogame losing streak in three years. Vick completed 20 of 30 passes for 175 yards and two scores but fumbled twice for the Eagles, who couldnt keep their string of narrow victories going. Dolphins 17, Bengals 13 CINCINNATI Reshad Jones intercepted Andy Daltons overthrown pass at midfield with 1:22 left, preserving a win that ended two weeks of miserable, lastminute finishes for Miami. Miami (2-3) had dropped its past two games in overtime. The Dolphins held on against the Bengals (3-2), who never got anything going consistently on offense and wasted a chance for a tighter finish. Mike Nugent was wide right on a 42yard field goal try with 3 minutes left his first miss of the season giving the Dolphins a chance to run down the clock behind rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was smooth in the toughest moments. The Bengals got the ball back at their 20 following a punt with 1:45 to go, but Daltons second interception sealed it. Dalton was 26 of 43 for 234 yards with three sacks and two interceptions. Vikings 30, Titans 7MINNEAPOLIS Percy Harvin pounded his way through Tennessees defense for one touchdown rushing and another receiving for Minnesota. Harvin caught eight passes for 108 yards for the Vikings (4-1), who have given up a combined 33 points in winning three straight games. Christian Ponder threw his first two interceptions after 143 attempts without one, but he still finished 25 for 35 for 258 yards and two scores against the reeling Titans (1-4). Matt Hasselbeck, starting in place of the injured Jake Locker, went 26 for 43 for 200 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Most of those gains came near the end with the outcome no longer in doubt. 49ers 45, Bills 3 SAN FRANCISCO Alex Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns, Frank Gore ran for 106 yards and a score, and San Francisco amassed a franchise-record 621 yards. Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis each eclipsed 100 yards receiving to back Smith, who threw TD passes of 43, 28 and 10 yards and surpassed 300 yards passing for only the third time in his career. Rian Lindell kicked a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter before San Francisco scored the final 42 points to hand Buffalo (2-3) its second straight embarrassing loss. Bears 41, Jaguars 3 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs returned interceptions for touchdowns their second in six days and Chicago used stifling defense to overwhelm Jacksonville. The Bears (4-1) scored 38 unanswered points, including 35 in the second half, to win their third consecutive game. The streak has everything to do with defense. Chicago has returned five interceptions for touchdowns in the last three weeks. Tillman and Briggs returned two of the teams five interceptions for touchdowns in Monday nights 34-18 victory at Dallas. Safety Major Wright returned one the previous week against St. Louis. The Jaguars (1-4) never recovered and played the final quarter amid a chorus of boos. Seahawks 16, Panthers 12 CHARLOTTE, N.C. Russell Wilson threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate with 35 seconds left in the third quarter and Seattle came up with four sacks against Cam Newton. Wilson shook off two third quarter interceptions including one that was returned for a touchdown. Wilson threw for 221 yards, while Marshawn Lynch ran for 85 yards for the Seahawks (3-2). Newton threw for 141 yards on 12-for-29 passing, while the Panthers (1-4) managed 190 total yards. Their only touchdown came on Captain Munnerlyns 33-yard interception return early in the third quarter.Ravens 9, Chiefs 6 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ray Rice ran for 101 yards and Justin Tucker made all three of his field goal attempts. Joe Flacco threw for 187 yards and was picked off once, but the Ravens (4-1) were still able to come up with enough points to beat the Chiefs (1-4), who turned it over four times. Matt Cassel threw for 92 yards, was intercepted twice and credited with two lost fumbles before leaving in the fourth quarter with what the Chiefs described as a head injury. Brady Quinn led Kansas City to another field goal by Ryan Succop. Giants 41, Browns 27EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Victor Cruz and Ahmad Bradshaw set career bests in leading New York Giants over winless Cleveland. Cruz caught three touchdown passes from Eli Manning covering 3, 7 and 28 yards, while Bradshaw surpassed his yardage on the ground for the season with a career-high 200. He had 132 entering the game. The Giants are 9-0 in games he has rushed for 100 yards or more. New York (3-2) also forced three turnovers, including Chase Blackburns interception in the end zone midway in the fourth quarter to clinch it. The Browns are 0-5 for the first time since their return season to the NFL in 1999. Asssociated Press Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner celebrates his touchdown Sunday with teammate wide receiver Roddy White (84) during the second half in Landover, Md. Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. Robert Griffin III isnt the type of quarterback to run out of bounds, and Sean Weatherspoon knew it. The Atlanta Falcons linebacker kept up the pursuit and went for the tackle. His upper body rammed into the helmet of the rookie who doesnt shy from contact. Griffin was down and done. A mild concussion, according to Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. On a day in which the Falcons usually powerful offense was a bit out of sync, the defense had made a play that changed the game. Matt Ryan went on to lead three scoring drives in the fourth quarter Sunday, scraping together enough points for a 24-17 win that gave the Falcons their first 5-0 start in franchise history. I felt like he was still turning upfield, so I was just trying to make a play, Weatherspoon said. Most quarterbacks would probably slide out of bounds or run out of bounds, but hes a tough guy. And there was no dispute. It was a clean hit. It felt like a good play, Weatherspoon said. I think it gave us a little energy. The play turned a third-and-goal from the 3 to a fourth-and-goal from the 5 late in the third quarter. The Redskins then kicked a field goal to take 10-7 lead, and Griffins replacement, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins, managed one big play in his NFL debut that put Washington in front one more time in the fourth quarter. But, otherwise, the post-Griffin section of the game belonged to the Falcons. Julio Jones dexterously got both feet inbounds on an 18-yard catch just beyond the pylon. Matt Bryant stayed perfect on the year with a 53-yard field goal. Michael Turner ran 13 yards for the go-ahead score with 2:46 to play. The defense intercepted Cousins twice in the final two minutes. The Falcons, mistakes and all, remain the only unbeaten team in the NFC. I dont know why you want to ask me any questions, Atlanta receiver Roddy White joked as he stood at his locker. We stunk it up in early in the game. The Falcons didnt score until the final minute of the first half, but Ryan kept throwing and throwingand throwing. He finished with 34 completions on 52 attempts for 345 yards with two touchdowns and one interception a screen pass picked off by Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and run back 28 yards for the games first score. Ryan also fumbled away a snap, Atlantas first lost fumble of the season. NFL CAPSULES Falcons knock out RG3, beat Redskins 24-17 to move to 5-0

Rothko defaced at Tate ModernLONDON A vandal scrawled graffiti on a mural by modern American master Mark Rothko at Londons Tate Modern on Sunday. The mural, one of Rothkos Seagram series, was defaced when a visitor to the Tate applied a small area of black paint with a brush to the painting, the gallery said. A photograph posted on Twitter by a gallery visitor showed words, including the name Vladimir scrawled in the corner of the painting. The gallery was briefly closed Sunday after the incident. Tate Modern said police were investigating. The graffiti on the paintingalso appears to read a potential piece of yellowism. According to an online manifesto, Yellowism is an artistic movement run by two people named Vladimir Umanets and Marcin Lodyga Big Bird wings it to SNLNEW YORK In a week when Big Bird was in the news, it seemed fitting to find him perched at the parody news report on NBCs Saturday Night Live. But joining Seth Meyers at the Weekend Update anchor desk, the popular Sesame Street character declined to comment on presidential hopeful Mitt Romneys vow to cut federal funding for PBS. Explaining why, Big Bird said he didnt want to ruffle any feathers. He told Meyers how he had learned of being mentioned on Wednesdays debate. He said hed gotten a million tweets. In closing, Big Bird shared a joke. Question: Who likes debates? Answer: De fishes.

Spotlight on PEOPLE Page B4 MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Birthday The year ahead could be an exceptional one for you, both socially and materially. A few new people in your life will bring opportunities for innovation and enrichment. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Endeavors you originate or direct have better-than-average chances of producing the rewards you envision. Let others have a hand in things if they so desire, but dont share the catbird seat. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is no reason whatsoever why you cant chalk up some solid numbers in the profit column. Give your most significant financial interest the time it deserves. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Rather than trying to sway an entire group to your way of thinking, isolate its key members and sell them on your plans. Once convinced, theyll be more effective when pitching to the others. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you need someone with special talent to help you with a pet project, now is the time to seek out this persons help. A positive response could evaporate if you wait too long. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Pleasant circumstances could come out of involvements that are business-oriented. A serious meeting could turn out to be a very enjoyable experience. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Under the right circumstances, a significant financial matter could develop. If you play your cards right, you could come out ahead. Aries (March 21-April 19) This could be an exceptionally harmonious day in all your affairs, but especially so in your partnership arrangements. Strike while the iron is hot. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont leave any stones unturned in your search for ways to make or save money. This is an especially fortunate time for your financial and business and dealings. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your ability to knit together important bits and pieces of information is exceptional. Dont hesitate to use it abundantly when gauging the significance of things. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Use your own smarts instead of listening to the advice of others regarding the way a critical matter should be handled. Lady Luck is looking to be on your side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) A friend who is apt to think on a grand scale will inspire you to do likewise. Once you decide to do so, dont put any limitations on your hopes and expectations. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your material affairs are trending quite favorably. Revisit past failed plans to make some money they could work if tried again.

The sequel opened with double the earnings of its predecessor, topping this weeks box-office charts. Associated Press LOS ANGELES C ritics dont like Taken 2, but Liam Neesons action sequel has proved twice the hit among fans as the original movie was. Taken 2 led the box office with $50 million domestically over opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Thats double the haul for Neesons Taken, which took in $24.7 million in its U.S. debut in early 2009. Taken went on to become a $145 million smash for Neeson, the Academy Award-nominated star of Schindlers List who has become an unlikely action hero in his 50s. In Taken 2, Neeson returns as a retired CIA agent using his expert espionage and killing skills to take on a gang of thugs out for revenge against him and his family. He gives hope to aging men, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. When hes 80, hell probably be kicking even more butt. Taken 2, which began rolling out overseas a weekend earlier, added $55 million more in about 50 international markets to raise its worldwide total to $117 million. The previous weekends No. 1 movie at the U.S. box office, Adam Sandlers animated hit Hotel Transylvania, dropped to secondplace with $26.3 million. The Sony release raised its domestic total to $76 million, and it has taken in $29.3 million overseas for a worldwide haul of $105.3 million. Expanding into nationwide release after a limited debut a week earlier, Universals music tale Pitch Perfect moved up to thirdplace with $14.7 million. The movie stars Anna Kendrick as a college freshman spicing things up for her a cappella singing squad. Sonys sci-fi thriller Looper, starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, fell from second place to fourth with $12.2 million, lifting its domestic haul to $40.3 million. Tim Burtons animated monster tale Frankenweenie had a slow start, taking in $11.5 million to round out the top-five. The Disney release is an update of Burtons 1984 live-action short film about a boy who brings his dead dog back to life. Released by 20th Century Fox, Taken 2 gave a big boost to Hollywood revenues, which have lagged most weekends since late summer. Domestic business totaled $138 million, up 45.5 percent from the same weekend last year, when Real Steel led with $27.3 million. While the first movie got respectable reviews, Taken 2 was panned by critics as a replay of the original. Audiences rarely care what critics say, though. Most people go to the movies for a certain dose of escapism, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. It doesnt have to be high art. It doesnt have to be serious and contemplative. They go to the movies to be entertained, and my gosh, thats what this movie does. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. Taken 2, $50 million ($55 million international). 2. Hotel Transylvania, $26.3 million ($13.1 million international). 3. Pitch Perfect, $14.7 million ($480,000 international). 4. Looper, $12.2 million ($7.5 million international). 5. Frankenweenie, $11.5 million. 6. End of Watch, $4 million. 7. Trouble with the Curve, $3.9 million. 8. House at the End of the Street, $3.7 million. 9. The Master, $1.8 million. 10. Finding Nemo, $1.6 million ($600,000 international). Associated PressWASHINGTON This high-stakes debate had some props that even the presidential candidates might want at their own events. Jon Stewart came prepared with a mechanical pedestal he used to elevate himself, making the height-challenged comedian appear taller than the lanky Bill OReilly when he wanted to drive a point home. I like you much better that way, OReilly quipped at one point as he gazed up at his ideological foe. The two celebrity gabbers have claimed their stakes to polar opposite ends of the political spectrum, and on Saturday night they tangled in an event dubbed The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium. The 90-minute exchange between the Fox News anchor and the star of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show saw them banter aggressively but good-naturedly over birth control, President George W. Bush and the socalled War on Christmas. The political feud between the two TV personalities dates back more than a decade. Stewart and OReilly love to disagree, but appear to hold nothing against each other afterward. The two have appeared on each others programs since 2001, but the faceoff at The George Washington University marked their first head-to-head debate. Appearing presidential in dark jackets under a sign reading Yum, this banner tastes like freedom, the two quickly turned to talk of government spending and the 47 percent of Americans that Republican Mitt Romney said in a video are dependent on government. Asked who hed like to see as president, OReilly deadpanned: Id have to say Clint Eastwood. Well why dont we ask him, said Stewart, mocking the Hollywood actors widely panned speech in August at the Republican National Convention by getting out of his chair and staring at it while the crowd erupted in laughter. In an apparent show of bipartisanship, Stewart even sat on OReillys lap at one point. And what would you like for Christmas, little boy? OReilly said.

E NTERTAINMENTC ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M ONDAY, O CTOBER 8, 2012 B5 P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Hyman Rickover, a four-star admiral known as the Father of the Nuclear Navy, said, Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous patience. The necessary play in this deal would not be found automatically by someone who had not seen the theme before. And even then, it takes courage, whether patient or impatient. How can East-West defeat three no-trump after West leads the diamond queen? North used a transfer bid, then rebid three notrump to offer a choice of games. South starts with six top tricks: one spade, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. He will aim at a third club trick and try to make use of dummys spade suit, planning on taking two finesses. South wins the first trick and plays a low spade to dummys 10. How does East defend? If he wins, a second spade finesse will give declarer at least four spades, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. Or, if East ducks, South takes a winning heart finesse. Then he cashes the club ace and ducks a club, getting that bad news. However, he takes the next diamond, crosses to the spade ace, and repeats the heart finesse to collect two spades, three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. Whats the problem? At trick two, West must courageously play his spade king. Then, assuming declarer wins with dummys ace, East takes the second spade trick, and the contract will fail. (East uses the bidding as his guide. With three spades, South would probably have bid four spades, not passed out three notrump.) Note also that if South has the spade queen, Wests king is dead anyway. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Drugs, Inc.

He is a real loser. Andy was in the military and was discharged early with a supposed disability from a pain in his hip. He refuses to get a job, because hes disabled. Yet he plays football and basketball, roughhouses with his cousins, and spends the rest of his time playing video games and watching TV. Andy has Anna brainwashed. She is not allowed to have friends or contact her family. He also doesnt want her to work. Consequently, they dont pay their bills. His parents do. They give Andy money and enable this behavior. Worse, they put on airs to impress others and trash talk Annas family. Meanwhile, Annas family provided a home for them with the understanding that the couple would reimburse them down the road. They did this because Anna was expecting, but she subsequently miscarried. Andys family is very dysfunctional. Theyve always cleaned up his messes and made excuses for his behavior. Anna was reared in a loving, normal family atmosphere. I fear Andy has her so emotionally cowed that she has forgotten her own potential. Do we continue to keep our distance and not interfere, hoping Anna will come to her senses? Watching Through Tears Dear Watching : If Andy prevents Anna from getting a job and keeps her isolated from friends and family, it is abuse. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Give Anna the number for the Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 800799-SAFE (800-7997233). You also could call and find out what you can do. But please dont keep your distance. Anna needs to know she can count on her family to be there when she needs them. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for six years. Stan belongs to a pool league, which means the guys play in local bars. Stan and one of his buddies told us that wives are not allowed to attend games. But the other two members of the team often have their wives join them. Am I wrong for feeling left out, or should I question his motives? Peeved in Pennsylvania Dear Peeved : Obviously, Stan doesnt want you around when he plays pool. The motive could be completely innocent. He may prefer to have one night with just the guys, or he may think your presence will affect his game. But its also possible that he uses the time to drink too much or flirt with other women. Tell him youd like to come along just once to see him play, and then if you trust him, leave it alone. Dear Annie: You told In the Middle that her overweight daughter, Barbara, is an adult and her choices are her own, and so are the consequences. Are you saying Barbara chose to be fat and deserves to be the target of her relatives negative remarks? No one chooses to be fat, and there is a lot of data saying there is a genetic component and that dieting doesnt work. Barbara and her mother both need to tell Dad and Grandma that they dont want to hear any more about it and from then on walk out whenever the subject is brought up. M. Dear M.: Oh, for heavens sake. Regular readers of this column know we have said many times that weight is affected by many things, including genetics, and that negative feedback is counterproductive. Barbara may not choose to be overweight, but she does decide what she eats and how much she exercises. Those choices belong to her, and she should take responsibility for them. Mom has already asked Dad and the other relatives to stop saying unkind things about Barbaras weight, and it hasnt made a dent. Mom is stressing out and needs to step back and let Barbara handle this herself. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

just tried to keep my head and just keep hitting my golf shots, and playing the golf course how I wanted to play it and just give myself opportunities. De Jonge, from Zimbabwe, missed the fairway on the 560-yard 16th. Today, playing a little bit down breeze, all youve got to do is get one in the fairway, de Jonge said. Its almost a mid-iron in there, so that was definitely a turning point, you know, the bad tee shot there. Blixt had a 70 to finish third at 20 under. Jason Day pulled within three strokes of Moore and de Jonge with a birdie on No. 16, but closed with a double bogey on the par-4 18th. He had a 65 to finish fourth at 18 under. The only blemish was obviously the missed green on 18, Day said. But I thought I was going to shoot 59 today, just the way things were going. I was hitting it good. I was putting it good, too. I just didnt capitalize on the opportunities I had on the back nine. Moore birdied the second and third holes to take a one-stroke lead over playing partners Blixt and de Jonge, and birdied the seventh hole to move two shots ahead. De Jonge pulled even with birdies on Nos. 8 and 9 and they remained tied through 15, going to the 16th tee at 23 under. I played nicely all week, de Jonge said. Hats off to Ryan. Hee played great, especially down the stretch. He made a couple tough shots in there on 17 and 18, and he pulled them off when he needed to. Bill Lunde was fifth at 15 under after a 66. He jumped from 157th to 128th on the money list, with the final top 125 getting full tour cards for next season. John Daly, tied for sixth at 10 under after a season-best 63 on Friday, followed a 15over 86 on Saturday with a 6-over 77 on Sunday to finish last at 11-over 295. He dropped from 132nd to 137th on the money list.

The contact hooked Stewart to send him into a spin, and his car lifted into the air and sailed on its roof and then on its side over several other cars. It created chaos through the pack, which was running three-wide in a frantic dash to the finish. I just screwed up. I turned down and cut across Michael and crashed the whole field, Stewart said. It was my fault, blocking and trying to stay where I was at. I was trying to win the race and I was trying to stay ahead of Matt there and Michael got a great run on the bottom and had a big head of steam, and when I turned down, I turned across the front of his car. Just a mistake on my part but cost a lot of people a bad day. Stewart gamely waved to the crowd as he climbed from his battered car, while Jimmie Johnson sat on the ledge of Earnhardts window for a lift back to the garage. Everywhere they looked, they saw crumpled cars. Five-time Talladega winner Earnhardt said enough is enough with the carnage. If this was what we did every week, I wouldnt be doing it, he said. Ill just put it to you that way. If this was how we raced every week, Id find another job. Thats what the package is doing. Its really not racing. Its a little disappointing. It cost a lot of money right there. If this is how were going to continue to race and nothing is going to change, how about NASCAR build the cars? Itll save us a lot of money. Jeff Gordon was scored in second-place and Kyle Busch in third, but NASCAR was sorting the final order almost an hour after the finish. That was the craziest, craziest finish Ive ever experienced at Talladega, Gordon said. It was just insane. I remember when coming to Talladega was fun, and I havent experienced that in a long time. That was bumper cars at 200 mph. I dont know anybody who likes that. NASCAR Continued from Page B1 who singled for his third hit in the goahead rally. They keep us in the ballgame and some timely hits from this kid, and the rest of the guys coming off the bench, thats really been the formula. The Nationals, who had never come close to making the playoffs since moving from Montreal in 2005, overcame a wild start by 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez. They limited the Cardinals to just three hits. All the credit in the world goes to the bullpen, Gonzalez said. Ive been saying it all year. The reason why weve been so successful is these guys come in and shut it down. Rookie reliever Ryan Mattheus needed just two pitches to bail out the Nationals in the seventh with St. Louis ahead 2-1. Moore, another rookie, put them ahead soon after that, Tyler Clippard worked around an error in the eighth and Drew Storen saved it with a 1-2-3 ninth. The NL East champion Nationals led the majors with 98 wins this season, and brought postseason baseball to Washington for the first time since 1933. The Nats go for a 2-0 series lead Monday when Jordan Zimmermann opposes Jaime Garcia. This team is not hanging our heads, St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright said. We can come back and win this easily. The Cardinals made it to the best-offive division series by beating Atlanta in the wild-card matchup Friday. But St. Louis wasted a 10-strikeout gem by Wainwright, failing to capitalize enough on Gonzalezs career high-tying seven walks and frustrating its towel-waving fans. Mattheus diffused a bases-loaded, none-out threat in the seventh, getting cleanup man Allen Craig to ground into a forceout at the plate and then inducing a double-play grounder from Yadier Molina. Craig led the National League with a .400 average with runners in scoring position and Molina batted .321 in those situations. It was a big moment, Mattheus said. It gave us life. The guys said, Hey, we can win this ballgame. A standing-room-only crowd of 47,078, among the largest at 7-year-old Busch Stadium, bundled up for a game that began in 54-degree chill and featured kaleidoscope late-afternoon shadows that bedeviled hitters for several innings. Rookie shortstop Pete Kozma misplayed Michael Morses grounder for an error to open the eighth and set up the Nationals go-ahead rally. Desmond followed with a single off Mitchell Boggs, putting runners at the corners. Danny Espinsoa sacrificed, leaving runners at second and third, and Kurt Suzuki struck out. In a series of moves, the Nationals sent up Chad Tracy to pinch hit, the Cardinals switched to lefty Marc Rzepczynski and Washington subbed in Moore, who had two of their three pinch homers this season. Rzepczynski pretty much hit his location but Moore poked it to right field and both runners scored easily. I was just trying to calm myself down and try to make some things happen and not strike out up there, Moore said. As, all to Detroit. The Tigers swept Oakland in the 2006 AL championship series, winning the series on Magglio Ordonezs homer in Game 4 which was Detroits last sudden-death postseason win before Sunday. Omar Infante and Cabrera hit back-to-back singles off Grant Balfour with one out in the ninth. With runners on first and third, Prince Fielder was intentionally walked, bringing up Kelly, who had stayed in the game as the designated hitter after pinch-running the previous inning. Was looking for a fastball and I got it, Kelly said. Its a great feeling, to be able to go out there in that situation and do that. Kellys fly to right was deep enough to score Infante without a play at the plate. It was another big playoff moment for Kelly, who hit a home run last year when the Tigers beat the New York Yankees in the decisive fifth game of the division series.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterBEVERLY HILLS It is a concept and marriage that is proving to be a boon for senior residents of the county seeking relief for either being taken by scammers or besieged by unscrupulous salespeople. The Seniors vs. Crime program has been the forefront of efforts to reduce victimization of seniors in the county. Since 2004, the program has known only one leader Don Moran. However, on Aug. 6, New Yorker Linda Lepore replaced Moran, who retired. Lepore, a 20-year veteran of the New York City Police Department, hopes her extensive background in pursuits such as detective work and community policing will translate in her new position with Seniors vs. Crime. I hope to fill Don Morans shoes, Lepore said. Its a great program and I have been impressed by what I have seen since I started, she said. Lepore said she is spending most of her initial days on the job shadowing and learning from the plethora of capable volunteers who go to bat for the aggrieved. The volunteers are amazing, and they bring so much experience with them, Lepore said. MIKEWRIGHT Staff WriterArgenizano! Smith! Dawsy! Webb! Balfour! Himmel! Mulrain. Vick.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Post-merger staffing nearly complete PATFAHERTY Staff WriterThree months after the merger of Duke Energy Corp. and Progress Energy Inc. closed, the post-merger staffing process is nearly complete. Jim Rogers, chief executive officer of Duke Energy, sent a letter to the North Carolina Utilities Commission on Oct. 3 providing an update on the merger integration process. The merger was announced in January 2011 and became effective July 2, making Duke Energy the largest electric power holding company in the United States. Rogers stated in his letter that a top priority was to complete the post-merger staffing process quickly and fairly. Our overarching principle has been to select the best talent available for each job, he wrote. I am pleased to report all business units are on track to complete essentially all staffing by the end of October 2012. Rogers noted that 1,153 employees applied for participation in the Voluntary Severance Program and nearly 450 employees had left the company under that program. He said involuntary severance had been minimized and several business units are hiring. About 130 employees are relocating as a result of the merger. In an Aug. 31 letter to the commission, Rogers said they had named the first three tiers of management using a mix of leadership talent from both companies: 65 percent from Duke Energy and 35 percent from Progress Energy. Senior leaders are roughly 60 percent Duke and 40 percent Progress. The new Duke Energy Corp. has 29,000 employees. Much of the Oct. 3 letter detailed progress in North Carolina, where Duke Energy is based. He did announce that business and financial plans for the combined company for 2012 are complete and planning for the 2013-15 cycle is under way. Senior management will present a preliminary five-year financial plan to the Duke Energy Board of Directors in the months ahead. The company will release its 2012 third-quarter earnings today, which will include the operations of Progress Energy as well as other business updates. Late last month, Progress Energy Florida announced that a decision has not yet been made on whether to repair or retire the Crystal River nuclear plant.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The City Council will do a final vote tonight on an ordinance that caused a split vote among panel members on first reading the issue of mobile vendors ability to locate on vacant lots. During its Sept. 24 meeting, the council voted 3-2 to pick a mobile vendor operation option which among other things has the following provisions: Vendors can only colocate on a site that is open to the public, holds an active business license and is fully developed per the citys land development code; they would be allowed along the rights of way; be self-contained; not be left unattended for more than 30 minutes; and be allowed one temporary sign up to 12 square feet. The ordinance also addresses the types of products that could be sold from these vendor sites. Roadside vendors cannot sell bulk household goods such as furniture, animals, pets, rugs, carpets artwork, paintings, etc., according to city officials. They, however can include food products, vegetable/fruit stands and seasonal sales including fireworks, Christmas trees, pumpkins and any other seasonal sale items as approved by the city manager. Council members Maureen McNiff, Paula Wheeler and Ron Kitchen support the ordinance and believe its a sign of support for brick-and-mortar businesses that are carrying a major overhead burden. Mayor Jim Farley and Mike Gudis are opposed to it because they think its a property rights issue and that businesses regardless of overhead should be allowed to compete freely. The council will also tackle the following issues: The appointment of Judith Simpson to the Waterfront Advisory Board Seat No. 2, Tourism; consideration of a Contract with Public Resources Management Group Inc. in the amount of $19,800 to conduct a water and wastewater utility rate study; consider approval of ordinance granting a non-exclusive Electric Utility Right-of-Way Utilization franchise to Florida Power Corp., d/b/a Progress Energy Florida Inc., for a term of 15 years; consider approval of ordinance, on first reading, adjustment to rates and fees related to Water and Sewer Services; on first reading, consider amending the land development code updating the language for business tax receipts to comply with state statutes; a resolution regarding ground and surface water sources and requesting a moratorium on the issuance of new groundwater consumptive-use permits until Minimum Flows and Levels (MFLs) have been established for local waterways; and discussion of the citys code which prohibits resort housing units in any zoning districts other than commercial waterfront. Resort housing units are defined in the land development code as dwelling units, other than hotels and motels, occupied for less than three consecutive months. According to city officials, letters have recently been received from property owners and a local Realtor expressing concern over this code provision and requesting that the council consider a modification of that provision. The council, serving in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), also will discuss options about the parcel commonly called the Waddington property, the vacant lot on the southeast corner of the intersection of U.S. 19 and Citrus Avenue. The property was recently purchased by Andrew and Jennifer Petrella, who own property nearby. According to the city, the Petrellas do not have firm plans for development of the site imminently. The city says the Petrellas are considering options, but before finalizing their plans wanted to offer the city an opportunity to assume the contract for the price of $396,000. The Petrellas purchased the property Sept. 6 at an auction for $396,000 ($360,000 plus a 10 percent surcharge). The city participated in that auction and dropped out of the bidding at $340,000 because City Manager Andy Houston had a cap of $375,000. The Duke-Progress merger was announced in January 2011 and became effective July 2, making Duke Energy the largest electric power holding company in the United States.

Associated PressMIAMI Millions of uninsured Florida families and health care providers are in a purgatory of sorts. Gov. Rick Scott and the Republican-led Legislature want to privatize the states Medicaid program, but need the Obama administrations permission. The Obama administration wants to make more low-income Floridians eligible for Medicaid, but needs Scott and the Legislature to agree. The sides have been negotiating a package deal for more than a year and wont comment. Without a solution, billions of federal dollars could go to other states and many uninsured Floridians will continue to receive their health care in emergency rooms the most expensive, least effective place. Safety nets, like community health centers, say they dont have enough funding to keep up as more uninsured patients end up in their waiting rooms. So many states are in a bit of a holding pattern until after the election, said Joan Alker, co-executive director of the Georgetown University research center. Floridas Medicaid program currently costs more than $21 billion a year, with the federal government picking up roughly half the tab. It covers nearly 3 million people about half are children and consumes about 30 percent of the state budget. In an effort to cut costs, the state has been trying to privatize Medicaid rather than having government insurance, patients would be assigned to for-profit insurance companies, which would receive a per-person fee from the state and decide what services and prescriptions to cover. A five-county pilot program showed little or no savings, however, but Scott and the Legislature still want to take a revamped version of the program statewide. Meanwhile, Florida has some of the most stringent eligibility requirements in the country. A family of three with income of $11,000 a year makes too much and single residents are not covered. The Obama administration wants those requirements loosened so an estimated 2 million uninsured Floridians could be covered by Medicaid. Feds will pick up 100 percent of the tab for the first three years and at least 90 percent after, along with extra funding for technology costs. But Scott says Florida cant afford any additional costs. State economists said Florida would pass up $2.1 billion in federal money while saving $3.9 million in the next budget year if everyone eligible for the expanded program participated. The states share would increase over time, but even by the 2020-21 budget year Florida would pay $487 million compared to the federal governments $4.2 billion contribution. Legislative leaders have mostly stayed quiet on the issue and it seems unlikely that Scott, a staunch conservative who forbid state agencies from accepting money tied to Obamas health care overhaul, will change his mind. Carol Weissert, a political science professor at Florida State University, said despite Scotts strong political stance theres been relatively little backlash over his decision not to expand Medicaid. We have high uninsured populations in Florida and unfortunately they dont vote, she said. Meanwhile, Sandra Bell, a 55-year-old single mother and school crossing guard from Miami, struggles to pay her $200 a month prescription costs for diabetes and hypertension. She makes too much to qualify for Medicaid during the school year, but qualifies for Medicaid during the summer. Bell has made several trips to the emergency room in the past year because she ran out of insulin. More recently, she visited the ER to get a tooth pulled after developing a painful infection. Florida hospitals admitted nearly 200,000 uninsured patients during fiscal year 2010-11 and their emergency rooms treated 1.8 million uninsured patients thats about 1 in 5. Hospitals absorbed $2.8 billion in uncompensated costs, according to the Florida Hospital Association. Were not talking about spending a lot more money. Were talking about spending the money were already spending differently, said Bruce Rueben, the associations president. Sen. Joe Negron, who heads up health care, said hed like to see Medicaid resemble private insurance where recipients choose from a list of commercial plans tailored toward patients with different needs, including HIV and diabetes. Rather than just saying, This is the government plan for Medicaid, heres your Medicaid card, youll go where we tell you to go, this frees people to be informed medical consumers, to shop around, said the Stuart Republican. Negron said lawmakers may consider a program that Floridians can purchase if they dont qualify for Medicaid but cant afford private insurance. Perhaps there would be state involvement in that. ... Right now, Medicaid is growing so fast in cost that its really inhibiting our ability to try some creative things. As state and federal negotiations continue, more patients are relying on safety nets like community health centers. Experts say the one-stop shop helps doctors better coordinate care for the patients by monitoring them over time, saving money by diverting them from emergency rooms for less-serious issues. Borinquen Medical Centers in Miami has a state-funded ER diversion program with three local hospitals. Florida community health centers, including Borinquen, have received more than $111 million under the Obama health care plan. City and county governments are eagerly accepting the windfall, even if Scott wont. The number of patient visits to Borinquen jumped from 15,897 in 2008 to 26,123 in 2011, a two-thirds increase. But funding only increased by $250,000 during that time, said CEO Bob Linder. The center charges patients $25, even though the average visit costs about $140. More than half of those patients are uninsured. Thirty-five percent are Haitian many who were displaced by the 2010 earthquake, he said. Nineteen year-old Madochee Gregroire is ready to give birth any day and gets weekly pre-natal care even though she is unemployed and doesnt have health insurance. The teen moved to Miami from Haiti after the earthquake. When I came here people take care of you. They know that you need them.

Republican elected to a fulltime constitutional office in Citrus County. Vick, who has worked 22 years for Strifler, has the financial backing in this race, having raised $22,035, much of it in donations of $100 or less. Mulrain shows $775 in contributions, but $510 is his own money. While she is out campaigning, Vick said many people dont realize the race is on the ballot. Everywhere I go, Im asked if I have an opponent, she said. They want to know his name. Vick said she considers it an advantage that the clerks race is so low-key this year. Its so important to be out meeting people and allow people the chance to get to know me, she said. I want them to know who their clerk is. Mulrain acknowledged he didnt know much about the clerks responsibilities before his campaign. He said he researched the job before committing to the campaign. Now he spends much of his campaign time as he did at a political forum Thursday night in Citrus Hills discussing the clerks duties. I always meet people who do not understand the exact duties of the job, he said. So many people do not understand the position. During a forum, Mulrain said he thinks Vick has support of the political establishment. Im a 29-year resident, he said. I realized I wasnt the chosen candidate. Vick told the audience to choose wisely. You will hire the next clerk of the circuit court, she said. Vick said she worked her way up the ladder at the clerks office and hopes to continue as the elected clerk. I love my job, she said. Ive been doing it for a long time.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, where he gave a presentation urging directors to bring a teaching medical facility to C.R. 491 to help anchor it for growth and play a major role in the long-term development of Citrus County. Among other items of business: On the consent agenda, Cautero will ask the BOCC to approve and authorize staff to prepare an amendment to the Future Land Use Element concerning the commercial node concept for commercial development to be discussed at future public hearings. The commercial node concept has been established to promote wellplanned, orderly commercial development within the county to discourage strip and isolated development, to reduce sprawl and to protect the countys rural character between nodes. Since the commercial node concept was adopted in the Comprehensive Plan of 1989, the character of the roadway network has changed with the future construction of the Suncoast Parkway 2 project, according to a background report. At 5:01 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to decide whether to allow Teramore Development to build a Dollar General store on a three-acre site at the junction of West Dunklin Street and North Citrus Avenue in Citronelle. At 1:30 p.m., the board will present employee service awards and proclamations. It will recognize the employee of the month for August; proclaim Oct. 15-20 as Mediation Week; proclaim Oct. 22-26 as Red Ribbon Week; proclaim its appreciation of the Friends of the Library; declare October 2012 as Friends of the Library Month; proclaim Nov. 3-12 as Veterans Appreciation Week; designate Nov. 12, 2012, as Veterans Day; and proclaim Oct. 9, 2012, as Ryan Fagan Day. The board will present a certificate of appreciation to Edward Shaw, Suzanne Green, and Wal-Mart of Homosassa for the generous contributions made to the 2012 Citrus County Library System Summer Reading Program. The agenda and background materials are available online at www.bocc.citrus.fl.us. The meeting also can be viewed live online in a small digital format. Click Agenda/Minutes at the top of the lefthand column on the countys webpage. The meeting is televised live on cable TV on Channel 622 on Bright House and Channel 9 on Comcast. The agenda is also available beforehand at the Lecanto Government Building and in the Commissioners suite on the second floor of the courthouse in Inverness. The Citrus County Port Authority will meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Citrus County Courthouse, Room 100, 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness. The meeting will be open to the public but will close to the public for an attorney-client session for the board to discuss a legal case styled Robert Schweickert Jr. vs. Citrus County Port Authority, a body corporate of the State of Florida; and John C. Martin Associates, LLC, a foreign limited liability company (Case No. 2012-CA1339). At the close of the attorney-client session, the meeting will be reopened to the public. According to the agenda, which is available at www.bocc.citrus.fl.us, the port attorney will report about the discussion, direction and course of action in the above-mentioned case as determined in the attorney-client session.Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer can be reached at cvanormer@chronicle online.com or 352-564-2916. The Seniors vs. Crime program was designed as a nonprofit organization of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Florida Attorney Generals Office to aid the vulnerable, especially seniors. The program uses civil action in an effort to recover funds from scams or dishonest transactions. The collaborative program was founded in 1989 by a retired colonel, Vern C. Thornton, of the Broward County Sheriffs Office. It started in this county in 2002. According to the programs brochure, even though its name has seniors in it, the program is open to all age groups with the common denominator being a person who has been taken advantage of or you feel someone has cheated you out of money or not delivered what they promised. According to program officials, as of July 2012, 1,553 cases have been worked by the office; $2,159.736 in funds has been recovered on behalf of citizens and volunteers have logged 25,929. Lepore said a program like this does not exist where she came from, and she hopes to spread the word about it. I dont think a lot of people know about all the things we can do help. The volunteers work really hard for people and its great to see that. Like I said, I am impressed with what I have seen and hope to add to that, Lepore said. Sgt. Chris Evan, who is head of community affairs at the sheriffs office, said Lepore was one of four or five finalists for the job, and she was picked for her impeccable credentials. She is extremely qualified and was the best among very good candidates. Her work as a detective will suit her well in this position. She will help bridge that gap of knowing how to help the community and to provide better services to people. We are glad she was selected, and I have confidence she will do a good job for us, Evan said. Lepore, 52, is married to her husband, John, and has three sons. Chronicle reporter A.B.

Great day for a bike ride Rails to Trails event cruises Withlacoochee State TrailSAMANTHAKENNEDY CorrespondentBike lights were on at the Withlacoochee State Trail at the break of dawn Saturday morning for the 12th annual Rails to Trails bike ride that started in Inverness. Riders were accommodated at the start of the ride with food and beverages and booths along the way where they could receive bike repairs or biking equipment for the ride. The ride was open to all people with an interest in biking. The $25 registration fee went back to the nonprofit Rails to Trails organization to help repave and revamp the trail riders were traveling on. Some people traveled 100 miles round trip that day, turning around at the Citrus Springs Trailhead, and others, like 71-year old John Monder traveled 14, simply to stay fit, or try to stay fit. Along the way, at different parts o the trail, volunteers were set up, ready to give refreshments to the riders, in order to maintain safe riding in the Florida heat. Comradery and people are what keep the ride going every year, said Ed Keyes, who was working the registration table. Although some people arent even aware that this long trail exists, new riders come every year to get a taste of a bike ride that keeps others coming back year after year. Its nice to see people getting their bikes out of their garage and riding, said 54-year old Gary Garman. Hopefully, riding their bike will be a continuous thing for them after the ride. President of the Rails to Trails of the Withlacoochee organization, Dennis Rieland and his wife moved to the county for the trail and its recreational value, and have found that giving back to the rails is one way to ensure their success. Riders were geared up and ready to go, with bikes lined up all across the sides of the trails, making a pit stop to check tire pressure and stop to grab a snack and a cup of coffee. Children were getting their helmets buckled up and preparing to take their own bicycling journey, as the ride was open to all ages as long as they had the proper gear to ride legally. Getting people familiar with the trail and getting the word out is the most we could ask for, Garman said.

Private rocket heads to space stationMARCIADUNN AP Aerospace WriterCAPE CANAVERAL A commercial cargo ship rocketed into orbit Sunday in pursuit of the International Space Station, the first of a dozen supply runs under a mega-contract with NASA. It was the second launch of a Dragon capsule to the orbiting lab by the California-based SpaceX company. The first was last spring. This time was no test flight, however, and the spacecraft carried 1,000 pounds of key science experiments and other precious gear. There was also a personal touch: chocolatevanilla swirl ice cream tucked in a freezer for the three station residents. The companys unmanned Falcon rocket roared into the night sky right on time, putting SpaceX on track to reach the space station Wednesday. The complex was soaring southwest of Tasmania when the Falcon took flight. Officials declared the launch a success. In more good news, a piece of space junk was no longer threatening the station, and NASA could focus entirely on the delivery mission. NASA is counting on private business to restock the space station, now that the shuttles have retired to museums. The space agency has a $1.6 billion contract with SpaceX for 12 resupply missions. Especially exciting for NASA is the fact that the Dragon will return twice as much cargo as it took up, including a stockpile of astronauts blood and urine samples. The samples nearly 500 of them have been stashed in freezers since Atlantis made the last shuttle flight in July 2011. The Dragon will spend close to three weeks at the space station before being released and parachuting into the Pacific at the end of October. By then, the space station should be back up to a full crew of six. SpaceX is shooting for its next supply run in January. Carrying contestNEWRY, Maine A Finnish couple has added to their victories by taking first place in the North American Wife Carrying Championship at Maines Sunday River ski resort. Taisto Miettinen and Kristina Haapanen traveled from Helsinki, Finland where they won the World Wife Carrying Championship for Saturdays contest. The Sun Journal reported the couple finished with a time of 52.58 seconds on a course that included hurdles, sand traps and a water hole. The winners receive the womans weight in beer and five times her weight in cash. For Miettinen and Haapanen, that meant a check for $530. They shared their beer winnings with the secondand thirdplace finishers Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault of South Paris and David and Lacey Castro of Lewiston.Judge as jurorEBENSBURG, Pa. A western Pennsylvania judge spent the day in the county courthouse but not in her usual seat. Instead, Cambria County Judge Linda Fleming sat among 119 other people who reported for jury duty Thursday at the courthouse about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh. Fleming said she felt it was important to serve and not use her position as an excuse to get out of jury duty. Potential jurors watch an orientation video in which Fleming and four other judges explain the process. Fleming said a woman sitting next to her didnt recognize her in the video. Fleming was picked for a 36-member panel assigned to a criminal case. But she wasnt seated as one of the cases 12 jurors after an attorney objected. Fleming said she declined the $9 each juror is paid for the day.Dog, not burglarOREM, Utah Police in Orem, Utah, say a man who thought he was getting a call from a burglar had actually gotten a call from his dog. Authorities in the community south of Salt Lake City say the man alerted police Wednesday after he received a phone call from his home phone on his cellphone. Officials say the man heard banging and scratching noises on the line and figured it was an intruder. Police went to the mans home but didnt find anything missing or broken. The man later called officers and told them he figured out the mystery. He said his dog had grabbed the home phones receiver and apparently hit the redial button while burying it in the backyard.Fake copST. PETERSBURG Authorities in southwest Florida have arrested a man they say pretended to be an officer in an attempt to get free food. Pinellas County Sheriffs deputies said Joseph Pineda rolled up to a McDonalds drive-through Friday saying he deserved free food because he was a cop. Authorities said he flashed a badge and gun and told restaurant employees he had just come from a sting and didnt have his wallet. Employees called the police. Pineda initially ignored commands to show his hands but eventually surrendered at gunpoint. Authorities said they found two fake police badges and a handgun in the center console. Thirty-three year-old Pineda was charged with impersonating a police officer and improper exhibition of a firearm. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail.Insect bitesPHILADELPHIA When a natural history museum throws a party, it figures some unusual food might end up on the menu. Interested in noshing on crickets, worms and farmraised python? The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia has an event for you. Its hosting an adults-only cocktail party on Oct. 27 called Cuisine From the Collections. While many of the living plants and animals represented in the museums 18 million research specimens already are food for other species, most arent your typical kitchen staples. Other menu items will include seaweed, buffalo and rabbit. The food is provided by the museums caterer and chefs and students from Drexel Universitys Goodwin College of Professional Studies.

The project was born in 1998 after a survey of the mosquito control ditches that carry stormwater runoff from as far away as the east side of U.S. 19 to the headwaters of the Homosassa. That study resulted in an ambitious comprehensive watershed management plan that called for additional treatment of stormwater from those drainage ditches by constructing two wetland treatment systems, one on the northern branch of the Pepper Creek system west of U.S. 19, and one on the southern branch of that creek system east of U.S. 19. Construction of the northern branch system was called Phase 4 and was estimated to cost $3.7 million in 2002. The county acquired money to get the property for Phase 4, but funding for construction became scarce after that, and county officials have been trying to find the money to create the wetland treatment system ever since. They had worked with the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) using legislative appropriations to buy two contingent tracks the Boschert and Fishnet Motel properties which were considered ideal for the project because of the location and because much of those properties was already wetlands. The tract is behind the former Wal-Mart and the current Publix shopping centers on the west side of U.S. 19 in Homosassa Springs. County officials had been hoping the upcoming widening of U.S. 19, which is scheduled in the next couple of years through Homosassa Springs, would allow them to take the next step in the project and finish Phase 4. They had hoped the state, which must acquire land for drainage retention in its widening project, would see the value in combining the two efforts in one system and finish the west-side part of the Southfork project. Though county officials will be able to put in a road connection that was a lesser part of the western drainage project, the state officials werent ready or able to buy into the countys bigger plan, and so the county wont be in a position to finish the long-running Southfork project yet. Thats yet, county officials say, in the sense that they are hopeful they may still be able to entice the state, through land swapping or some other deal, to help finish Phase 4 as the highway project continues north through Crystal River. The DOT recently notified the county of its intention to condemn some of the county wetland drainage system property for drainage retention. When the county made its pitch of an inclusive plan, though DOT declined to be a partner, it did redesign its plan for the drainage retention areas and creation of a berm between them to accommodate the part of the countys project to connect Halls River Road just south of the shopping center to Homosassa Trail. Frink said although the road will help relieve some traffic at Halls River Road and U.S. 19, it wasnt a big priority of the project. Creation of the wetland system is the big goal, he said. As to the DOT condemnation, Frink said there is a restrictive covenant in the deed to the land which the DEP originally insisted upon when the county got the money to buy the property that says no matter who owns the land, it must be used for creating facilities to reduce pollution discharge into the Homosassa River system. He said DOT attorneys are currently reviewing the covenants, though if there was a legal hitch, DEP could release DOT from the restrictions if DEP felt the new retention areas would have a net beneficial effect on the original purpose. So the covenants probably wont change anything, and the county wouldnt want to stand in the way of the widening anyway. Although he had hoped to convince the state to partner with the county to complete at least Phase 4, Frink said the situation did allow the county to raise the issue of funding for the long-unfinished Southfork project once more, and he said he will continue to pitch the project to DOT when appropriate. County staff has really been pushing, trying to get something done out there, he said, adding that they will continue to look for state or federal funding to push the Southfork project forward. Frink said the county, for instance, will be applying with 23 other Florida counties for a share of the up to $3.6 billion in fines the BP oil company will have to pay to Florida county governments as a result of the federal Restore Act passed in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. Seven northern coastal counties will get 75 percent of that, and whether Citrus would get any money and then whether the money could even be used for Southfork or any other uses, such as expansion of coastal sewer systems, remains to be seen, Frink said, but county officials will keep probing for a way to finish Southfork.

WETLANDContinued from Page A1 Courtesy of Citrus County Public WorksThe Homosassa Southfork Drainage Project plan calls for a 37-acre wetland system that would be used to treat stormwater runoff from mosquito control drainage ditches that connect to the Homosassa River system. The county has acquired the property, but during the past decade has not been able to come up with the funding to create the system. It had hoped the state, which is getting ready to widen U.S. 19 from Homosassa Springs through Crystal River, would partner its needs for drainage retention areas with the countys project. So far, the state isnt ready to partner, though it will create a berm for a bypass that will connect Homosassa Trail with Halls River Road as part of the taking of some of the countys Southfork Phase 4 property. The project and the states proposed drainage retention areas are outlined in the aerial above between the two shopping centers and the Westwind mobile home park on the left.

(SJ Res 37) Nelson, no; Rubio, yes. 18. Democratic Tax Cuts: Senators on July 25, 2012, passed, 51-48, a bill by Democrats to extend Bush-era tax cuts through 2013 for couples with adjusted gross incomes under $250,000 and singles under $200,000 98 percent of taxpayers. A yes vote was to raise taxes next year only on the top 2 percent of taxpayers. (S 3412) Nelson, yes; Rubio, no. 19. Republican Tax Cuts: Senators on July 25, 2012, defeated, 45-54, a Republican amendment to S 3412 (above) that sought to extend Bushera tax cuts for all income levels through 2013. A yes vote backed a measure that also retained 15 percent as the capital-gains and dividends tax rate and averted an increase next year in estate taxes. Nelson, no; Rubio, yes. 20. Veterans Jobs Corps: Senators on Sept. 19, 2012, failed, 58-40, to reach 60 votes for advancing bipartisan bill to start a Veterans Jobs Corps at a deficit-neutral cost of $1 billion over five years. A yes vote backed the bill over arguments by some Republicans that it violates the Budget Control Act and adds to several other federal jobs programs for veterans that are poorly managed. (S 3457) Nelson, yes; Rubio, no. 21. Health Care Repeal: Senators on Feb. 2, 2011, rejected, 47-51, a bid to repeal the 2010 health law in its entirety. Repeal was backed by all 47 Republican senators and opposed by all members of the Democratic caucus who voted. A yes vote was to advance a House-passed repeal of Obamacare. (S 223) Nelson, no; Rubio, yes. 22. Budget Control Act: Senators on Aug. 2, 2011, joined the House, 74-26, in raising the national-debt limit so the Treasury could pay bills already incurred by the 112th Congress and previous ones and keep the U.S. out of default. A yes vote was to pass the Budget Control Act, which mandated at least $2.7 trillion in deficit reduction over 10 years that would come from domestic, defense and entitlement budgets but not tax increases. (S 365) Nelson, yes; Rubio, no. 23: Obama Jobs Bill: Senators on Oct. 11, 2011, failed, 50-49, to reach 60 votes needed to end Republican blockage of a jobs plan offered by President Obama. The bill would cost $447 billion over 10 years in tax cuts and programs such as highway and schools construction to stimulate employment, with the cost offset by raising taxes on incomes over $1 million. A yes vote was to advance the bill. (S 1660) Nelson, yes; Rubio, no. 24. China Trade Penalties: Senators on Oct. 11, 2011, passed, 63-35, a bill prodding the administration to begin trade retaliation against countries such as China that artificially devalue their currencies to gain advantage over American goods and services. A yes vote was to encourage U.S. tariffs on imports from China. (S 1619) Nelson, yes; Rubio, no. 2012 Thomas Reports Inc.

Whether the issue splitting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama is Medicare, tax rates, reproductive rights, Wall Street rules, oil and gas drilling, China trade, clean energy, health care or payroll equity, it already has been debated on the House and/or Senate floors and now on the congressional campaign trail, as well. As a result, the White House race and many close-fought House and Senate campaigns across the country sound a lot like one another. But while the presidential candidates are mostly pointing to the future and talking in generalities, many congressional races are dealing with the recent past in a very specific way haggling over incumbents voting records in the 112th Congress. This report spotlights 24 House and Senate votes on domestic-policy issues that have become flashpoints in the presidential race. Many of these issues will or have been discussed in formal White House and congressional debates. Some might even ring a bell with hard-to-impress undecided voters. While most have been prominent in the news, others are less publicized but equally useful in illuminating where federal candidates stand. One House vote covered here (Issue 8, below) put members on record on an issue that Romney has refused to discuss in specifics, the question of whether the popular mortgage-interest and charitablegiving deductions would have to be ended to gain revenue needed to offset tax cuts. According to an oft-quoted study by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, Romney as president would have to eliminate those and other breaks favored by the middle class to help pay the $456 billion annual cost of his economic plan, which is built around a 20 percent cut in personal rates on top of the Bush-era tax cuts. The conservative Heritage Foundation has debunked the study as based on flawed assumptions. Asked by Minutes if the devil is in the details with respect to the homemortgage and charitable deductions, Romney said: The angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs. In another recent overlap of House business and presidential politics, the GOP leadership on Sept. 20 guided passage of a bill that would block the administrations experimentation with work requirements for welfare recipients in a few states. This vote (Issue 9, below) provided fodder for the GOP to portray House Democrats as enablers of welfare dependency, a charge Romney has been leveling against Obama in ads that independent fact checkers have judged to be inaccurate. With Rep. Paul Ryan campaigning both as the GOP vice-presidential candidate and to keep his House seat in Wisconsin, his voting record (below) faces scrutiny nationally and locally. And given Ryans status as the GOP thought-leader in Congress on fiscal issues, its not surprising that policies with which he is closely identified have become major points of disagreement in the presidential campaign. This report covers a vote (Issue 2, below) on the Paul Ryan budget, which is best known for its plan to transform traditional Medicare into a voucher program. The report also covers the 2011 Budget Control Act (Issue 12, below), which is the force behind sequestration cuts in defense and domestic programs scheduled to start next year. Ryan and Obama are among several key players who hatched this draconian law in order to stave off a U.S. debt default that was only hours away. Ryan voted for it and praised it as a big step in the right direction of cutting spending. But he now decries the law in swing states for its impact on the Pentagon budget. Ryan and other House Republicans voted (Issue 1, below) to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board, which was created by Obamacare to use expert advice from outside of government to slow the growth of Medicare costs. The repeal bid died in the Senate. Ryan refers to the board in the presidential campaign as bureaucrats who would unilaterally ration care for those on Medicare. In fact, the 2010 health law gives Congress control over the membership of the panel as well as veto power over its specific proposals to control costs. Starting in 2015, the board will have power to restrain any annual spending increases for Medicare that exceed official per-capita projections tied to factors such as inflation and the Gross Domestic Product. Congress cannot reduce the sum of its proposed cuts but can change individual parts after clearing high parliamentary hurdles. The 15 panel members will serve full-time for six years and require Senate confirmation. House and Senate leaders of both parties will recommend 12 of the 15 nominees and the president will choose the others. Ryan likes to compare his premium support plan for voucherizing Medicare to the health plan for members of Congress and federal workers. Just as the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program offers a menu of commercial policies from which participants can choose, his plan would enable Medicare participants to pick from an array of private plans or stay in what is left of government-run traditional Medicare. Critics note a major difference in how the two approaches protect seniors from rising medical costs. By law, FEHB participants are entitled to have 72-to-75 percent of their premiums paid by taxpayers. By contrast, increases in Ryans vouchers are pegged to a formula based on GDP growth rather than the faster growth of health care costs. A House Budget Committee report says the Ryan plan will allow seniors to enjoy the same kind of choices in their plans that members of Congress enjoy. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., said in House debate the Ryan plan does not give seniors the deal that members of Congress give to themselves, and that should be put to rest right now. The House has conducted 1,552 roll-call votes so far in the 112th Congress, and the Senate 435. This report boils that activity down to the important votes below, all of which have split the parties both on the floors of Congress and in this years presidential and congressional campaigns.

NANCYBENAC Associated PressWASHINGTON It can be something as small as positioning the candidate at just the right camera angle or as big as catching the opponent in a campaignaltering slip of the tongue. Every day, the ground troops of Team Obama and Team Romney set out in pursuit of a common goal: winning the day. Moment by moment, hour by hour, they scramble, maneuver and hustle to gain an inch here, a foot there on the opposition. Driving it all is the belief that by stringing together enough small, daily victories, they can help their candidate win the one day that truly matters Nov. 6, Election Day. If they lose the day on Monday, they will work harder to win it on Tuesday. If they lose on Tuesday, theres always Wednesday or Thursday. Until time runs out. Each day opens with a mental push of the reset button. When Obama underperformed in his first debate Wednesday night, his handlers worked all the harder the next morning in briefings, conference calls, television appearances, attack ads and more to frame Romneys debate narrative as dishonest. Republican rapid responders served up rejoinders in real time. Winning the day becomes a state of mind that motivates but also has the potential to distract. Its what fires up the volunteers, the interns, the media monitors, the cable TV guests, the road warriors, the press wranglers, the local party officials and all the others who make up the infrastructure of a presidential campaign and propel it through long, wearying months and even years. It helps you get up at 5 in the morning so that the doughnuts and coffee are ready when the volunteers come in at 6 or 7, says Paul Begala, a Democratic consultant who helped create the 24-hour war room for Bill Clintons winning presidential campaign in 1992. Campaign partisans scour every word from the opposition in search of openings to exploit. Most of that turns out to be wasted effort. But no one knows what one sentence could veer offmessage and end up becoming a Moment that will reverberate in the political echo chamber. Any change in direction is something that we can grasp on to and then use to get into the news cycle and get into the narrative, says Republican National Committee spokesman Kirsten Kukowski, whose emails fly at all hours. The Democrats pounce on Romneys caught-ontape comment that its not his job to worry about the 47 percent of Americans who dont pay taxes. Tweets, email, press releases, YouTube clips fly. The Republicans pounce on Vice President Joe Bidens offhand reference to a middle class that has gotten buried over the past four years. More tweets, email, press releases, YouTube clips ensue. Both incidents have become threads in the ongoing campaign narrative.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, OCTOBER8, 2012 A9 Citrus American Italian Club 000COYX Contact Mimi 637-9501 4325 S.

ITS HARD TO STOP A TRANE. REALLY HARD. Senate race ads focus on Medicare, Obamacare, debt Associated PressWASHINGTON For critical Senate races, Republicans are turning to the playbook that served them so well in the 2010 elections. Theyre saturating the airwaves with political ads detailing the perils of Obamacare and the nations growing debt. Democrats have added Medicare to the equation, trying to make the case that revamping the government health care program for older people would virtually destroy it. As the Nov. 6 election fast approaches, political strategists and ad writers are pointing to what they believe this years vote is about: defending Medicare, creating jobs and standing up to powerful interests, whether its Big Oil, big banks or big Washington. Each state has distinct differences that shape the messages of each race. In conservative-leaning states such as Arizona, Montana and Indiana, the strategy for Democratic candidates is to seek distance from President Barack Obama and display a strong sense of independence. They need to get voters to forgo casting straight party-line ballots. Republicans have tried their best to reinforce links between Obama and Democratic candidates. In Arizona, Republican Jeff Flakes first ad after his primary victory pointed out that former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona was recruited by the president to run for the Senate as a Democrat, and that while Flake opposes the presidents health insurance overhaul, Carmona supports it. Obamas man in Arizona? Or Jeff Flake, Arizonas man in Washington? Some decisions are just easier than others, the ads narrator says.Linked with ObamaIn Montana, twins Linda and Marsha Frey contend that a vote for Democratic Sen. Jon Tester is tantamount to a vote for Obama. After all, Tester voted for the economic stimulus package and the health care overhaul, they note. They may not be twins, but they might as well be, the ladies chime. Tester won in Montana six years ago, in part because he was able to convince voters of his independence. Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg has tried to chip away at those impressions by showing how often Tester and Obama are on the same side on the issues. Enter the Frey sisters. Rehbergs team was conducting man on the street interviews for a television commercial when the sisters showed up. Rehbergs campaign manager and media consultant saw the identical twins in their matching outfits and had an idea. They had such great personalities and I started scratching my head and pulled our media guy aside and I said, Dont these two represent what weve been trying to say all along? They are a visual for what weve been trying to say: Tester and Obama are twins, said Erik Iverson, Rehbergs campaign manager. The Rehberg camp wrote a script within the hour and cut the ad that afternoon. It spent more than $100,000 to air the ads during the Republican and Democratic conventions. The more Montana voters associate Tester with Obama, the more likely he is to lose because of the presidents low favorability ratings. The ads effectiveness, Iverson said, is evident in campaigns internal polling. In February, only 1 of 5 voters surveyed by the campaign answered that Tester voted with Obamas position more than 90 percent of the time. Now, more than half do. Rehberg wins handily with that group of voters.Democratic distanceTo have any chance of winning, its critical for Democratic candidates in those conservative states to display their independence. In Indiana, Democrat Joe Donnelly explains in an ad that he would work across party lines to extend all the income tax cuts passed under President George W. Bush, even those for the wealthy. Hes incorporated a theme within his political ads, casting his opponent, Richard Mourdock, as an ultra-conservative ideologue who doesnt compromise. His ads end with a man named The Mourdock Way yelling out obnoxiously Hey, Donnelly, its my way or the highway. Donnellys campaign spokeswoman, Elizabeth Shappell, said internal polling shows that highway now stands out as one of the most frequently cited words that voters associate with Mourdock, who defeated Sen. Richard Lugar in the primary by rallying the tea party to his camp. Mourdock has responded with an ad of his own, called teammate. Richards a great teammate and hell work with Republicans and Democrats to create jobs, Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman says in the ad.Health care issuesThe health care overhaul that Congress passed in 2010 continues to reverberate in this years elections. GOP candidates say it represents government overreach and theyre working to counter Democratic charges that Republicans are out to eliminate Medicare. For example, in North Dakota, GOP Rep. Rick Berg says in an ad that Democrat Heidi Heitkamp supports Obamacare, cutting $716 billion from Medicare and putting a few unelected bureaucrats in charge of the program. The ad succinctly explains his plan: Repeal Obamacare and its cuts to Medicare. No changes for those 55 and over. And protects Medicare for future generations. Ads on behalf of Democrats emphasizing a GOP proposal that would replace the current fee-forservice system in Medicare with one that instead gives a subsidy to purchase their health insurance. Berg voted for such a system. Heitkamp enlists breast cancer survivor Margaret Gilmour to explain why she didnt support such a plan. Rick Berg is worth $24 million, but he voted to increase premiums by $6,400 to pay for a tax break for millionaires like himself. I wouldnt be alive today if Medicare cost that much Gilmour tells viewers. The $6,400 figure comes from a Congressional Budget Office analysis of a plan the House passed in 2011. GOP lawmakers in the House since have tweaked the proposal to give beneficiaries a choice of buying a private plan or to purchase a traditional Medicare plan. A September poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation makes clear the importance of Medicare in this years elections. It trails only the economy and the deficit as priorities for voters. The poll also found that 55 percent of Americans prefer keeping Medicare as its currently structured, while 37 percent favor a premium support system with a traditional Medicare option of the sort called for by GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.Other adsThe two candidates in Florida are talking Hooters. Theres Democratic Sen. Bill Nelsons ad pointing out that Republican Connie Mack is a promoter for Hooters with a history of bar room brawling, altercations and road rage. Macks ad response: Who cares? Bill Nelson, like a typical career politician, wants to talk about Hooters and what I did as a kid. Winning the day as means to winning the election Associated PressU.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona testifies Feb. 16, 2005, on Capitol Hill before the Senate Health Committee hearing on drug importation. Carmona, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Arizona, is targeted by his Democrat opponent, Jeff Flake, in the 2012 race as having been recruited by the president to run as a Democrat. As election day nears political strategists are pointing more clearly to the elections decisive issues: defending Medicare, creating jobs and standing up to powerful interest, be it Big Oil, big banks or big Washington.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 Business regulationThe Crystal River City Councils latest rain dance of regulation and intervention is another blatant attack on private property rights. Now they want to control mobile vendors and the type of wares they can sell, and where. Here we have a council that, without verifiable and measurable proof, deem mobile vendors dangerous to the citys businesses. They really believe by removing these honest, hardworking mobile vendors, the businesses in Crystal River will boom and prosper. Their naivet is astounding. Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist. John Adams Private property rights are the foundation of a free society. Ordinances and regulations serve only to render private property rights useless. Unfortunately, and unless we stop this overzealous attempt by governments at all levels, this fundamental right will continue to erode. Our freedom to own property is being diminished. Real property differs from personal property because it is immobile. When you acquire land you, are also acquiring rights. These rights are also known as the bundle of rights which helps to define a persons interests in the land. However, the exercise of the bundle of rights is subject to limits imposed by the government. This means that private property rights are not absolute. Because of this, governments, especially local councils, commissions, planning board, etc., when imposing limitations through ordinances, usually use the excuse that it is being done for the public good which is not necessarily good, nor is it meant to benefit the public. Private property is now becoming communally controlled and managed. Private property ownership cannot continue to be controlled by government because history has a funny way of exposing the fallacy of government managing anything right. With appropriate and necessary regulations, private property owners can better manage their land. Private management leads to flourishing and more equitable prosperity, employment and greater efficiency in land usage than when government takes over and dictates. In addition to assaulting our symbols of liberty by creating more flag ordinances, and their never-ending attacks on private property rights, they are now attacking free markets and capitalism. What will our local tyrannical czars think of next?Edna Mattos HernandoGood jobIt is with pleasure I compliment American Legion Post 155 for its leadership in a fundraiser for Marine Josh White.

Inverness Who wins Floridas crucial 29 electoral votes in next months presidential election may well come down to who can best woo Hispanic voters. Multiple national polls show an overwhelming majority of African-American voters, and a majority of unmarried women and young voters, will vote to re-elect President Obama. By contrast, more white men and older voters will vote for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Among Hispanics, national polls show 73 percent of eligible voters prefer the president, up from the 68 percent who voted for him in 2008. But dont think the support among Hispanic voters nationwide translates to Florida. According to Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, about 14 percent of Floridas more than 11.4 million voters are Hispanic. These include 592,434 Democrats, 463,298 Republicans and 469,288 independents. While the nations largest Hispanic population is of Mexican origin followed by those of Puerto Rican, Cuban, Salvadoran, Dominican and Guatemalan descent Floridas eligible Hispanic voters have a different profile. Almost a third are of Cuban origin, 28 percent are of Puerto Rican origin and only 9 percent of Mexican descent. Because of Floridas ethnic mix, Hispanic voters here have long favored Republican candidates, in contrast to Democratic-friendly Hispanic voters in other states. This phenomenon is largely due to the disproportionate GOP tilt of Cuban-American voters. In the U.S. Senate race two years ago, for instance, 55 percent of Hispanic voters supported Republican Marco Rubio over independent Charlie Crist (25 percent) and Democrat Kendrick Meek (20 percent.) And in the last gubernatorial election, 50 percent of Hispanic voters chose Republican Rick Scott, while 48 percent supported Democrat Alex Sink. A poll released late last month by Public Policy Polling of Raleigh, after the dissemination of the Romney percent dependent upon government video, showed the president barely ahead among Floridas Hispanic voters. The president was leading by two percentage points, 49 to 47 percent within the polls 3.3 percent margin of error. By contrast, non-Hispanic white voters here preferred Romney, 53-42, while African-Americans preferred Obama over Romney, 87-8. The same poll showed 94 percent of Floridas Hispanic voters are enthusiastic and excited about voting in November, compared to 88 percent of AfricanAmerican voters and 81 percent of non-Hispanic whites. That measurement is associated with voter turnout on Election Day, possibly the decisive factor in a close election. Surprisingly, not one word was addressed to Hispanic voters by either candidate at the first presidential debate on Wednesday night. So if you know any Hispanic voters whom you want to urge to vote for your preferred presidential candidate, this would be a good time to sayBuenos dasand have a friendly chat about the issues. The conversation may well make a difference as to whether Obama or Romney carries Florida next month, give or take a chad.Angel Castillo Jr., a former reporter and editor for the New York Times and The Miami Herald, practices employment law in Miami.

CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ..........................................publisherMike Arnold ..................................................editorCharlie Brennan ................................editor at largeCurt Ebitz ........................................citizen memberMac Harris ......................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ................................guest memberBrad Bautista ..........................................copy chief GOING, GOING, GONE Water quantity and quality inseparable Following on the heels of legislation enacted in 2011 that neutered Floridas landmark growth management laws, the states evolving water withdrawal policy is raising citizen concern and doubt about its commitment to assuring future water needs are met while maintaining, protecting and improving Floridas waters and the habitats they sustain. A recent rule change proposed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) purports to provide more consistent consumptive water-use permitting among the states five water management districts. Instead, as noted by the Florida Conservation Coalition and other environmental groups, it promises to threaten future water quantity and quality. As proposed, the rule change would prohibit water management districts during their compliance reviews from reducing the allowable amount of water withdrawal for previously issued consumptive-use permits in times of drought. Such an inflexible rule falsely assumes Floridas water supply is inexhaustible and water withdrawals have no impact on water quality. To the contrary, the inseparability of water quantity and water quality is clearly evident in the local controversy over the development of minimum flows and levels (MFLs) for the Chassahowitzka River and Homosassa River. The 1972 Florida Water Resources Act called for the establishment of MFLs to protect the ecology of natural systems from significant harm associated with water withdrawals. However, MFL development languished until recently. Initially welcomed by the communities of Chassahowitzka and Homosassa, the fly in the MFL ointment is that significant harm lacks precise definition. With significant harm in the eye of the beholder, residents focus on the daily reality of the rivers degradation, whereas Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) officials concentrate on their modeling data. Concerned citizens contend the transformation of sandy river bottoms to muck, dying vegetation, declining wildlife and barnacles as far inland as the Homosassa Rivers main spring are prima facie evidence that significant harm has already occurred. Conversely, SWFWMD officials view these examples of degradation as anecdotal. SWFWMD officials consider a flow reduction of up to 3 percent for the Homosassa River and 9 percent for the Chassahowitzka River with an attendant 15 percent habitat loss acceptable. Concerned citizens, on the other hand, assert that water withdrawals beyond the current 1 percent flow reduction would cause irreparable harm to the rivers and their habitats. The sharp difference in viewpoints created by the states evolving water withdrawal policy has also raised doubt among concerned citizens that the proposed consumptive-use rule change and belated push to establish MFLs are politically driven to justify development unsustainable by local water resources, not the preservation of Floridas waters.

Associated PressWaitresses dance on tables in a beer tent on the final evening of the famous Bavarian Oktoberfest beer festival Sunday in Munich, southern Germany. Associated PressBERLIN Munichs famed celebration of beer, the Oktoberfest, is drawing to a close after some 6.4 million visitors downed an estimated 6.9 million liter mugs of Bavarian brew some 14.6 million pints. Organizers said they were satisfied with this years event, which opened Sept. 22 and ends Sunday although visitor numbers were lower than last year. Festival director Dieter Reiter said thats because the festival grounds were reduced to accommodate an agricultural fair which takes place every four years, news agency dapd reported. In 2011, the Oktoberfest drew some 6.9 million visitors, who downed well over 7 million liters. The Oktoberfest draws visitors from across the world many of whom try out traditional Bavarian dress. Reiter said: Purely from a visual point of view, there are only Bavarians. Visitors at this year's Oktoberfest, the 179th, mostly came from Germany, neighboring countries, Italy, the U.S., Asia, New Zealand and Australia. While the Oktoberfest's main draw is the towering mugs of beer, many visitors, especially families, often flock to the Oktoberfest for its fairground attractions such as roller coasters.WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, OCTOBER8, 2012 A11 000CROT You Could Win You Could Win One night with breakfast for two in the One night with breakfast for two in the West 82 Bar & Grill, Gol f for two at the West 82 Bar & Grill, Gol f for two at the Plantation Golf Club and a half day Plantation Golf Club and a half day pontoon boat rental provided by the pontoon boat rental provided by the Adventure Center at the Plantation.* Adventure Center at the Plantation.* 9301 West Fort Island Trail Crystal River, Florida 34429 www.plantationoncrystalriver.com (352)795-4211 *All prizes are subject to availability and not good over holidays.

Union: Agents fired on each otherPHOENIX The U.S. Border Patrol agent killed last week in a shooting in southern Arizona apparently opened fire on two fellow agents thinking they were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire, the head of the Border Patrol agents union said Sunday. The two sets of agents approached an area where a sensor had been activated early Tuesday from different directions early Tuesday and encountered each other in an area of heavy brush, National Border Patrol Council president George McCubbin said.What Sandusky will find in prisonHARRISBURG, Pa. Jerry Sandusky will walk into state prison with little more than a watch and wedding band. Hell be able to work a 30hour week to make a few dollars. Hell be able to watch Penn State football but not violent movies. If the former Penn State defensive coach is sentenced Tuesday to a long state prison term, he will find himself far removed from the comfortable suburban life he once led, placed under the many rules and regulations of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. Even Sanduskys own attorney believes that whatever sentence he gets, at age 68 Sandusky will likely live out his days inside a state prison. Arrested moms stay with kidsNEW YORK A unique program in New York City allows mothers to live with their children in a private apartment building instead of prison while they serve out court mandates. Five families live in the building, all sent there by the district attorneys office for felony offenses. Some involve drugs, others weapons, and still others violent crime. The program has been lauded as a successful, more supportive and cheaper alternative to prison. But space is running out, and it needs funding in order to grow.Wide recall issued in meningitis caseATLANTA The pharmacy that distributed a steroid linked to an outbreak of fungal meningitis has issued a voluntary recall of all of its products, calling the move a precautionary measure. The New England Compounding Center announced the recall Saturday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted updated figures to its website Sunday showing there are 91 confirmed cases of the rare form of fungal meningitis. The states with reported cases are: Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia.Friends baffled by killing of studentMOBILE, Ala. Classmates and friends are questioning why a police officer fatally shot a University of South Alabama freshman who was naked and had been banging on a window at police headquarters. Campus officials didnt give any indication that Gil Collar, 18, of Wetumpka had a weapon when he was shot. A statement issued by university spokesman Keith Ayers said Collar, who wrestled at Wetumpka High School before enrolling at South Alabama, assumed a fighting stance and chased an officer before being shot.

Israel was still investigating Saturdays incident, but Hezbollah quickly emerged as the leading suspect because it has an arsenal of sophisticated Iranian weapons and a history of trying to deploy similar aircraft.Pope names two church doctorsVATICAN CITY Pope Benedict XVI urged the worlds bishops on Sunday to try to bring back Catholics who have left the church as he opened a threeweek meeting to reinvigorate the churchs evangelization mission. At the start of the Mass, Benedict named two new doctors of the church, conferring one of the Catholic Churchs highest honors on the 16th-century Spanish preacher, St. John of Avila, and the 12th-century German mystic, St. Hildegard of Bingen. Pension fights foreshadowed in RIPROVIDENCE, R.I. Cities and states around the country are shoring up battered retirement plans by reducing promised benefits to public workers and retirees. All told, states need $1.4 trillion to fulfill their pension obligations. The political and legal fights challenge the clout of public-sector unions and test the venerable idea that while state jobs pay less than private-sector employment, they come with the guarantee of early retirement and generous benefits. Nowhere have the changes been as sweeping as in Rhode Island, where public sector unions are suing to block an overhaul passed last year. The law raised retirement ages, suspended pension increases for years and created a new benefit plan that combines traditional pensions with something like a 401(k) account. Putin portrayed as no-nonsense leaderMOSCOW Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a first-person documentary aired on his 60th birthday Sunday that the current generation of opposition leaders needs to be cast aside and he brushed aside concerns the two-year jail sentence for punk bank Pussy Riot was too severe. The documentary that aired Sunday portrayed Putin as a tireless and nononsense leader contemptuous of domestic and international criticism. It also depicts a Spartan lifestyle of daily exercise, plain breakfasts and late-night work sessions. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE From wire reports Turkey, Syria trade fire Associated PressAKCAKALE, Turkey Turkey and Syria fired artillery and mortars across their volatile border for a fifth consecutive day on Sunday, in one of the most serious and prolonged flare-ups of violence along the frontier. The exchange of fire stoked fears that Syrias civil war will escalate into a regional conflagration drawing in NATO member Turkey, once an ally of President Bashar Assad but now a key supporter of the rebels fighting to topple him. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu had warned on Saturday that Ankara would respond forcefully to each errant Syrian shell that lands on Turkish soil. Ankaras warning was coupled by an apparent diplomatic push by the Turkish leadership to float the name of Syrian Vice President Farouk al-Sharaa as a possible figure to head a transition administration to end the conflict in the country. In an interview Saturday with Turkish state television TRT, Davutoglu said alSharaa was a figure whose hands are not contaminated in blood and therefore acceptable to Syrian opposition groups. It was not clear whether the Turkish stance was coordinated with other allies, but the candid remarks by Davutoglu suggested some consensus might be emerging over a future role for him. Al-Sharaa, 73, a close associate and longtime loyalist to the Assad family, has been a controversial figure since the start of the uprising. He appeared in public in late August for the first time in weeks, ending repeated rumors that he had defected. The regime has suffered a string of prominent defections in recent months, though Assads inner circle and military have largely kept their cohesive stance behind him. Early on in the uprising, the Syrian president delegated to al-Sharaa, a skilled diplomat, responsibility for holding a dialogue with the opposition. A Sunni from the southern town of Daraa, birthplace of the Syrian uprising, al-Sharaas silence since the start of the uprising made him a prime candidate for rumors that he broke with the regime. The Syrian opposition is deeply fragmented, and various factions would likely disagree on whether they would accept him to lead a transitional government. Associated PressTurkish troops station Sunday at the border gate with Syria, across from Syrian rebel-controlled Tel Abyad in Akcakale, Turkey. Associated PressNoorullah Hamidi, who owns a womens dress shop, poses Sunday with a photograph of his brother Hafizullha, who was killed near the shop while trying to flee street fighting during the civil war in Kabul, Afghanistan. Civil war ahead? Associated PressKABUL, Afghanistan Nobody wants a repeat of the bloody ethnic fighting that followed the Soviet exit from Afghanistan in the 1990s least of all 32-year-old Wahidullah who was crippled by a bullet that pierced his spine during the civil war. Yet as the Afghan war began its 12th year on Sunday, fears loom that the country will again fracture along ethnic lines once international combat forces leave by the end of 2014. It was a very bad situation, said Wahidullah, who was a teenager when he was wounded in the 19921996 civil war. All these streets around here were full of bullet shells, burned tanks and vehicles, he added, squinting into a setting sun that cast a golden glow on the bombed-out Darulaman Palace still standing in west Kabul not far from where he was wounded. People could not find bread or water, but rockets were everywhere, said Wahidullah, who now hobbles around on red-handled crutches. He goes by one name only, as do many Afghans. The dilapidated palace is a reminder of the horror of the civil war when rival factions who had joined forces against Soviet fighters before they left in early 1989 turned their guns on each other. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed. Fed up with the bloodletting, the Afghan people longed for someone anyone who would restore peace and order. The Taliban did so. But once in power, they imposed harsh Islamic laws that repressed women and they publicly executed, stoned and lashed people for alleged crimes and sexual misconduct. The Taliban also gave sanctuary to al-Qaida in the run-up to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S. When the Taliban refused to give up the al-Qaida leaders who orchestrated 9/11, the U.S. invaded on Oct. 7, 2001. Eleven years later, Afghanistan remains divided and ethnic tension still simmers. The Taliban, dominated by the ethnic Pashtun majority, have strongholds in the south. Ethnic minorities such as Tajiks, Hazaras and Uzbeks live predominantly in central and northern Afghanistan. The fear is that when international forces leave, minority groups will take up arms to prevent another Taliban takeover and that members of the Afghan security forces could walk off the government force and fight with their ethnic leaders. Social media among threats to greeting cards Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Say its your birthday or youve just had a baby, maybe got engaged or bought your first house. If youre like many Americans, your friends are texting their congratulations, sending you an e-card or clicking Like on your Facebook wall. But how many will send a paper greeting card? Im really, really bad at it, said Melissa Uhl. The 25year-old nanny from Kansas City, Mo., hears from friends largely through Facebook. Once a staple of birthdays and holidays, paper greeting cards are fewer and farther between now seen as something special, instead of something thats required. The cultural shift is a worrisome challenge for the nations top card maker, Hallmark Cards Inc., which last week announced it will close a Kansas plant that made one-third of its greeting cards. In consolidating its Kansas operations, Kansas City-based Hallmark plans to shed 300 jobs. Pete Burney, Hallmarks senior vice president who overseas production, says competition in our industry is indeed formidable and that consumers do have more ways to connect digitally and online and through social media. Over the past decade, the number of greeting cards sold in the U.S. has dropped from 6 billion to 5 billion annually, by Hallmarks estimates. The Greeting Card Association, an industry trade group based in White Plains, N.Y., puts the overallsold figure at 7 billion. Brian Sword, 34, of Kansas City, said hes definitely buying and receiving fewer printed cards than he did a decade ago, though he still prefers to send them to and receive them from a small group of close friends and family.

Bernhard Langer rallied to win the SAS Championship on Sunday to take the lead in the Charles Schwab Cup points race, shooting a 9under 63 to beat Jay Don Blake by two strokes Four shots back entering the final round, Langer birdied the final two holes to finish at 13-under 203 at Prestonwood Country Club. The German star has two victories this year and 16 overall on the 50-and-over tour. Blake closed with a 68. He needed a birdie on the par-4 18th to force a playoff, but hit a tree with his drive and bogeyed the hole. Mark Wiebe also shot 68 to finish third at 10 under. Langer, who earned $315,000 and leads the Champions Tour money list with $1,818,896, had 11 one-putts during his round, including five of his last six holes.Grace wraps up win at Dunhill LinksST. ANDREWS, Scotland Branden Grace won his fourth European Tour event of the season Sunday by shooting a 2-under 70 to protect his lead and win the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship by two shots. The South African led from the first round and finished with a 22-under total of 266 to hold off Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark, who finished second after a 68. Alexander Noren of Sweden (69) was another two shots back in third. Another South African, George Coetzee, equaled the Old Course record that had been set Thursday with a 10-under 62 for a share of fifth place.

Associated PressTALLADEGA, Ala. Tony Stewart tried to block his way to victory at Talladega Superspeedway. It backfired, badly. The big one came on the last lap Sunday, when Stewarts attempt to hold on for the win instead sent his car sailing through the field and triggered a 25-car accident. Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth won under caution, and everyone else was left wondering what happened to cause so much carnage. Its not safe. Its not. Its bloodthirsty, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. If thats what people want, thats ridiculous. Stewart took full responsibility for causing the accident. He had charged to the lead on the first lap of a two-lap sprint to the finish, but got too far ahead of the pack to hang on to any drafting partners. Kenseth was charging on the outside of him and Michael Waltrip was leading a line of traffic on the inside.

The last couple of days were tough, said Moore, the former UNLV player who lives in Las Vegas. I was shot for shot with Brendon, and he was playing some great golf. I was able to make a birdie down the stretch when it mattered to hold him off at the end. Tied with de Jonge and Jonas Blixt after the third round, Moore finished at 24-under 260 at TPC Summerlin and earned $810,000 in the Fall Series opener. Moore also won the 2009 Wyndham Championship.

The relieved reliever gave his Detroit teammates a reason to laugh in ninth inning of a tight game. Moments later, the Tigers were celebrating. Don Kelly scored the tying run on a wild pitch in the eighth, then hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth that lifted the Tigers over the Oakland Athletics 5-4 Sunday for a 2-0 lead in their AL playoff series. Detroit overcame three As leads and seesawed to victory. It was 1-all before a wild final three innings that included a key error by Oakland center fielder Coco Crisp, two game-tying wild pitches and several momentum changes. Alburquerque kept it tied in the ninth when he got Yoenis Cespedes to hit a comebacker with men on first and third and two outs. He gave the ball a quick smooch before throwing to first. I just did it, he said. It was the emotion of the game. I wasnt trying to be a hot dog. Oakland outfielder Josh Reddick wasnt thrilled. We didnt appreciate that.

The last time nine ranked teams lost in one week was Oct. 18, 2008. No team was more impressive than South Carolina. Coach Steve Spurrier has the Gamecocks ranked higher than they have been in 28 years. Have we ever been that high before? How about ? Spurrier asked during his conference call with reporters Sunday. South Carolina reached No. 2 late in the 1984 season. Well, weve still got a ways to go, he added. The Gamecocks have emerged as the leading contender in the SEC to knock off Alabama if South Carolina can get a crack at the Tide. They dont play in the regular season, but could meet in the SEC championship game. But thats a long way away especially with South Carolina heading to LSU next Saturday and Florida the week after. The Gamecocks finish, as usual, with No. 16 Clemson. The Gators havent been in the top five during the regular season since 2009. That was the end of the Tim Tebow era. Year 2 under Will Muschamp is starting to feel a bit like Urban Meyers second season at Florida. Those Gators won the national title. As for West Virginia, this just about sums it up: In the last two weeks, the Mountaineers have allowed 108 points and won both games. Next up for the Geno Smith and the Mountaineers is another trip back to Texas, this time Lubbock to face Texas Tech (4-1).MOVING UPSpeaking of Meyer, Ohio State moved up four spots to No. 8 in the rankings after a 63-38 victory against Nebraska in Columbus, Ohio. Everybody knows by now the Buckeyes are playing only for pride because of an NCAA postseason ban. In a year when the Big Ten looks down, Ohio State seems capable of going undefeated. No. 25 Michigan is the only other Big Ten team ranked this week.MOVING DOWNFlorida State, No. 9 LSU and No. 15 Georgia all took tumbles in the rankings after spending the whole season ranked in the top seven. The Seminoles loss was the most stunning and most damaging. The Seminoles seemed primed to make a run at playing in the BCS championship game, and the ACC is without another dominant team.IN AND OUTNo. 21 Cincinnati (4-0) and No. 22 Texas A&M are ranked for the first time this season, and No. 24 Boise State and No. 25 Michigan are back after falling out earlier.

Colts 30, Packers 27INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck capped a second-half comeback by throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne with 35 seconds to go that gave Indianapolis a stunning 30-27 victory over Green Bay on Sunday in the Colts first game without coach Chuck Pagano. Green Bay (2-3) had a chance to force overtime, but Mason Crosby missed a 51yard field goal with 3 seconds to go. Luck then took a knee and time ran out and the team celebrated. Missing was Pagano, who is in a hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia that was recently diagnosed. Luck came through with just what Pagano wanted getting the Colts (2-2) to .500. And they did it despite trailing 213 at halftime. After Adam Vinatieri gave Indy its first lead at 22-21 with a 28-yard field goal, Aaron Rodgers threw an 8-yard TD pass to James Jones to make it 27-22 with 4:30 left before the Colts rallied.Patriots 31, Broncos 21FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady won his latest showdown with Peyton Manning with the help of a career-high 151 yards rushing from Stevan Ridley. In the 13th meeting between the star quarterbacks, and first since Manning left the Indianapolis Colts, Brady directed four scoring marches of at least 80 yards and the Patriots rushed for 252 yards. Brady improved to 9-4 against Manning, He completed 23 of 31 passes for 223 yards and one touchdown and ran for another. Manning was 31 of 44 for 345 yards and three touchdowns but lost a fumble on a third-quarter sack. The fumble led to Ridleys 8-yard run that put the Patriots (3-2) ahead 31-7 with about five minutes left in the third quarter. Manning then threw touchdown passes of 2 yards to Eric Decker and 5 yards to Brandon Stokley but Denver (2-3) lost a fumble with 3:42 remaining.Steelers 16, Eagles 14PITTSBURGH Shaun Suisham hit a 34-yard field goal as time expired. The Eagles (3-2) took the lead on a 2yard touchdown pass from Michael Vick to Brent Celek with 6:33 remaining, but the Steelers responded by driving 64 yards, including a pair of key third-down conversions by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, to set up the winning kick. Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall ran for 81 yards and a touchdown in his first game of the season as the Steelers (2-2) avoided their first twogame losing streak in three years. Vick completed 20 of 30 passes for 175 yards and two scores but fumbled twice for the Eagles, who couldnt keep their string of narrow victories going.Dolphins 17, Bengals 13CINCINNATI Reshad Jones intercepted Andy Daltons overthrown pass at midfield with 1:22 left, preserving a win that ended two weeks of miserable, lastminute finishes for Miami. Miami (2-3) had dropped its past two games in overtime. The Dolphins held on against the Bengals (3-2), who never got anything going consistently on offense and wasted a chance for a tighter finish. Mike Nugent was wide right on a 42yard field goal try with 3 minutes left his first miss of the season giving the Dolphins a chance to run down the clock behind rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was smooth in the toughest moments. The Bengals got the ball back at their 20 following a punt with 1:45 to go, but Daltons second interception sealed it. Dalton was 26 of 43 for 234 yards with three sacks and two interceptions.Vikings 30, Titans 7MINNEAPOLIS Percy Harvin pounded his way through Tennessees defense for one touchdown rushing and another receiving for Minnesota. Harvin caught eight passes for 108 yards for the Vikings (4-1), who have given up a combined 33 points in winning three straight games. Christian Ponder threw his first two interceptions after 143 attempts without one, but he still finished 25 for 35 for 258 yards and two scores against the reeling Titans (1-4). Matt Hasselbeck, starting in place of the injured Jake Locker, went 26 for 43 for 200 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Most of those gains came near the end with the outcome no longer in doubt.49ers 45, Bills 3SAN FRANCISCO Alex Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns, Frank Gore ran for 106 yards and a score, and San Francisco amassed a franchise-record 621 yards. Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis each eclipsed 100 yards receiving to back Smith, who threw TD passes of 43, 28 and 10 yards and surpassed 300 yards passing for only the third time in his career. Rian Lindell kicked a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter before San Francisco scored the final 42 points to hand Buffalo (2-3) its second straight embarrassing loss.Bears 41, Jaguars 3JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Charles Tillman and Lance Briggs returned interceptions for touchdowns their second in six days and Chicago used stifling defense to overwhelm Jacksonville. The Bears (4-1) scored 38 unanswered points, including 35 in the second half, to win their third consecutive game. The streak has everything to do with defense. Chicago has returned five interceptions for touchdowns in the last three weeks. Tillman and Briggs returned two of the teams five interceptions for touchdowns in Monday nights 34-18 victory at Dallas. Safety Major Wright returned one the previous week against St. Louis. The Jaguars (1-4) never recovered and played the final quarter amid a chorus of boos.Seahawks 16, Panthers 12CHARLOTTE, N.C. Russell Wilson threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate with 35 seconds left in the third quarter and Seattle came up with four sacks against Cam Newton. Wilson shook off two third quarter interceptions including one that was returned for a touchdown. Wilson threw for 221 yards, while Marshawn Lynch ran for 85 yards for the Seahawks (3-2). Newton threw for 141 yards on 12-for-29 passing, while the Panthers (1-4) managed 190 total yards. Their only touchdown came on Captain Munnerlyns 33-yard interception return early in the third quarter.Ravens 9, Chiefs 6KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ray Rice ran for 101 yards and Justin Tucker made all three of his field goal attempts. Joe Flacco threw for 187 yards and was picked off once, but the Ravens (4-1) were still able to come up with enough points to beat the Chiefs (1-4), who turned it over four times. Matt Cassel threw for 92 yards, was intercepted twice and credited with two lost fumbles before leaving in the fourth quarter with what the Chiefs described as a head injury. Brady Quinn led Kansas City to another field goal by Ryan Succop.Giants 41, Browns 27EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Victor Cruz and Ahmad Bradshaw set career bests in leading New York Giants over winless Cleveland. Cruz caught three touchdown passes from Eli Manning covering 3, 7 and 28 yards, while Bradshaw surpassed his yardage on the ground for the season with a career-high 200. He had 132 entering the game. The Giants are 9-0 in games he has rushed for 100 yards or more. New York (3-2) also forced three turnovers, including Chase Blackburns interception in the end zone midway in the fourth quarter to clinch it. The Browns are 0-5 for the first time since their return season to the NFL in 1999. Asssociated PressAtlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner celebrates his touchdown Sunday with teammate wide receiver Roddy White (84) during the second half in Landover, Md. Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. Robert Griffin III isnt the type of quarterback to run out of bounds, and Sean Weatherspoon knew it. The Atlanta Falcons linebacker kept up the pursuit and went for the tackle. His upper body rammed into the helmet of the rookie who doesnt shy from contact. Griffin was down and done. A mild concussion, according to Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan. On a day in which the Falcons usually powerful offense was a bit out of sync, the defense had made a play that changed the game. Matt Ryan went on to lead three scoring drives in the fourth quarter Sunday, scraping together enough points for a 24-17 win that gave the Falcons their first 5-0 start in franchise history. I felt like he was still turning upfield, so I was just trying to make a play, Weatherspoon said. Most quarterbacks would probably slide out of bounds or run out of bounds, but hes a tough guy. And there was no dispute. It was a clean hit. It felt like a good play, Weatherspoon said. I think it gave us a little energy. The play turned a third-and-goal from the 3 to a fourth-and-goal from the 5 late in the third quarter. The Redskins then kicked a field goal to take 10-7 lead, and Griffins replacement, fellow rookie Kirk Cousins, managed one big play in his NFL debut that put Washington in front one more time in the fourth quarter. But, otherwise, the post-Griffin section of the game belonged to the Falcons. Julio Jones dexterously got both feet inbounds on an 18-yard catch just beyond the pylon. Matt Bryant stayed perfect on the year with a 53-yard field goal. Michael Turner ran 13 yards for the go-ahead score with 2:46 to play. The defense intercepted Cousins twice in the final two minutes. The Falcons, mistakes and all, remain the only unbeaten team in the NFC. I dont know why you want to ask me any questions, Atlanta receiver Roddy White joked as he stood at his locker. We stunk it up in early in the game. The Falcons didnt score until the final minute of the first half, but Ryan kept throwing and throwingand throwing. He finished with 34 completions on 52 attempts for 345 yards with two touchdowns and one interception a screen pass picked off by Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and run back 28 yards for the games first score. Ryan also fumbled away a snap, Atlantas first lost fumble of the season. NFL CAPSULES Falcons knock out RG3, beat Redskins 24-17 to move to 5-0

Rothko defaced at Tate ModernLONDON A vandal scrawled graffiti on a mural by modern American master Mark Rothko at Londons Tate Modern on Sunday. The mural, one of Rothkos Seagram series, was defaced when a visitor to the Tate applied a small area of black paint with a brush to the painting, the gallery said. A photograph posted on Twitter by a gallery visitor showed words, including the name Vladimir, scrawled in the corner of the painting. The gallery was briefly closed Sunday after the incident. Tate Modern said police were investigating. The graffiti on the paintingalso appears to read a potential piece of yellowism. According to an online manifesto, Yellowism is an artistic movement run by two people named Vladimir Umanets and Marcin Lodyga.Big Bird wings it to SNLNEW YORK In a week when Big Bird was in the news, it seemed fitting to find him perched at the parody news report on NBCs Saturday Night Live. But joining Seth Meyers at the Weekend Update anchor desk, the popular Sesame Street character declined to comment on presidential hopeful Mitt Romneys vow to cut federal funding for PBS. Explaining why, Big Bird said he didnt want to ruffle any feathers. He told Meyers how he had learned of being mentioned on Wednesdays debate. He said hed gotten a million tweets. In closing, Big Bird shared a joke. Question: Who likes debates? Answer: De fishes.Broadways Swenson, McDonald wedNEW YORK Audra McDonald and Will Swenson have tied the knot, cementing a relationship between two of Broadways best-looking and talented stars. According to a publicist for the bride, the couple married Saturday at their home in CrotononHudson in New York. The brides wedding dress was designed by Esosa. McDonald is mother to daughter, Zoe Madeline, 11, and Swenson is father to two sons, Bridger, 11, and Sawyer, 8. The couple looks forward to their new life together as husband, wife and wee posse of three, according to a statement. McDonald recently won a record-tying fifth Tony Award in a revival of Porgy and Bess. Spotlight onPEOPLE Page B4MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2012 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Birthday The year ahead could be an exceptional one for you, both socially and materially. A few new people in your life will bring opportunities for innovation and enrichment. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Endeavors you originate or direct have better-than-average chances of producing the rewards you envision. Let others have a hand in things if they so desire, but dont share the catbird seat. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is no reason whatsoever why you cant chalk up some solid numbers in the profit column. Give your most significant financial interest the time it deserves. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Rather than trying to sway an entire group to your way of thinking, isolate its key members and sell them on your plans. Once convinced, theyll be more effective when pitching to the others. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you need someone with special talent to help you with a pet project, now is the time to seek out this persons help. A positive response could evaporate if you wait too long. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Pleasant circumstances could come out of involvements that are business-oriented. A serious meeting could turn out to be a very enjoyable experience. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Under the right circumstances, a significant financial matter could develop. If you play your cards right, you could come out ahead. Aries (March 21-April 19) This could be an exceptionally harmonious day in all your affairs, but especially so in your partnership arrangements. Strike while the iron is hot. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Dont leave any stones unturned in your search for ways to make or save money. This is an especially fortunate time for your financial and business and dealings. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your ability to knit together important bits and pieces of information is exceptional. Dont hesitate to use it abundantly when gauging the significance of things. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Use your own smarts instead of listening to the advice of others regarding the way a critical matter should be handled. Lady Luck is looking to be on your side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) A friend who is apt to think on a grand scale will inspire you to do likewise. Once you decide to do so, dont put any limitations on your hopes and expectations. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your material affairs are trending quite favorably. Revisit past failed plans to make some money they could work if tried again.

The sequel opened with double the earnings of its predecessor, topping this weeks box-office charts. Associated Press LOS ANGELES Critics dont like Taken 2, but Liam Neesons action sequel has proved twice the hit among fans as the original movie was. Taken 2 led the box office with $50 million domestically over opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Thats double the haul for Neesons Taken, which took in $24.7 million in its U.S. debut in early 2009. Taken went on to become a $145 million smash for Neeson, the Academy Award-nominated star of Schindlers List who has become an unlikely action hero in his 50s. In Taken 2, Neeson returns as a retired CIA agent using his expert espionage and killing skills to take on a gang of thugs out for revenge against him and his family. He gives hope to aging men, said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com. When hes 80, hell probably be kicking even more butt. Taken 2, which began rolling out overseas a weekend earlier, added $55 million more in about 50 international markets to raise its worldwide total to $117 million. The previous weekends No. 1 movie at the U.S. box office, Adam Sandlers animated hit Hotel Transylvania, dropped to secondplace with $26.3 million. The Sony release raised its domestic total to $76 million, and it has taken in $29.3 million overseas for a worldwide haul of $105.3 million. Expanding into nationwide release after a limited debut a week earlier, Universals music tale Pitch Perfect moved up to thirdplace with $14.7 million. The movie stars Anna Kendrick as a college freshman spicing things up for her a cappella singing squad. Sonys sci-fi thriller Looper, starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, fell from second place to fourth with $12.2 million, lifting its domestic haul to $40.3 million. Tim Burtons animated monster tale Frankenweenie had a slow start, taking in $11.5 million to round out the top-five. The Disney release is an update of Burtons 1984 live-action short film about a boy who brings his dead dog back to life. Released by 20th Century Fox, Taken 2 gave a big boost to Hollywood revenues, which have lagged most weekends since late summer. Domestic business totaled $138 million, up 45.5 percent from the same weekend last year, when Real Steel led with $27.3 million. While the first movie got respectable reviews, Taken 2 was panned by critics as a replay of the original. Audiences rarely care what critics say, though. Most people go to the movies for a certain dose of escapism, said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox. It doesnt have to be high art. It doesnt have to be serious and contemplative. They go to the movies to be entertained, and my gosh, thats what this movie does. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood.com. Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday. 1. Taken 2, $50 million ($55 million international). 2. Hotel Transylvania, $26.3 million ($13.1 million international). 3. Pitch Perfect, $14.7 million ($480,000 international). 4. Looper, $12.2 million ($7.5 million international). 5. Frankenweenie, $11.5 million. 6. End of Watch, $4 million. 7. Trouble with the Curve, $3.9 million. 8. House at the End of the Street, $3.7 million. 9. The Master, $1.8 million. 10. Finding Nemo, $1.6 million ($600,000 international). Associated PressWASHINGTON This high-stakes debate had some props that even the presidential candidates might want at their own events. Jon Stewart came prepared with a mechanical pedestal he used to elevate himself, making the height-challenged comedian appear taller than the lanky Bill OReilly when he wanted to drive a point home. I like you much better that way, OReilly quipped at one point as he gazed up at his ideological foe. The two celebrity gabbers have claimed their stakes to polar opposite ends of the political spectrum, and on Saturday night they tangled in an event dubbed The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium. The 90-minute exchange between the Fox News anchor and the star of Comedy Centrals The Daily Show saw them banter aggressively but good-naturedly over birth control, President George W. Bush and the socalled War on Christmas. The political feud between the two TV personalities dates back more than a decade. Stewart and OReilly love to disagree, but appear to hold nothing against each other afterward. The two have appeared on each others programs since 2001, but the faceoff at The George Washington University marked their first head-to-head debate. Appearing presidential in dark jackets under a sign reading Yum, this banner tastes like freedom, the two quickly turned to talk of government spending and the 47 percent of Americans that Republican Mitt Romney said in a video are dependent on government. Asked who hed like to see as president, OReilly deadpanned: Id have to say Clint Eastwood. Well why dont we ask him, said Stewart, mocking the Hollywood actors widely panned speech in August at the Republican National Convention by getting out of his chair and staring at it while the crowd erupted in laughter. In an apparent show of bipartisanship, Stewart even sat on OReillys lap at one point. And what would you like for Christmas, little boy? OReilly said. The display that you saw tonight is why America is America. Robust, creative, no holds barred, OReilly told reporters after the debate. Organizers said about 1,500 people attended the event, but the main audience was intended to be online, where the event was live-streamed for $4.95.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, OCTOBER8, 2012 B5 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Hyman Rickover, a four-star admiral known as the Father of the Nuclear Navy, said, Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous patience. The necessary play in this deal would not be found automatically by someone who had not seen the theme before. And even then, it takes courage, whether patient or impatient. How can East-West defeat three no-trump after West leads the diamond queen? North used a transfer bid, then rebid three notrump to offer a choice of games. South starts with six top tricks: one spade, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. He will aim at a third club trick and try to make use of dummys spade suit, planning on taking two finesses. South wins the first trick and plays a low spade to dummys 10. How does East defend? If he wins, a second spade finesse will give declarer at least four spades, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. Or, if East ducks, South takes a winning heart finesse. Then he cashes the club ace and ducks a club, getting that bad news. However, he takes the next diamond, crosses to the spade ace, and repeats the heart finesse to collect two spades, three hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. Whats the problem? At trick two, West must courageously play his spade king. Then, assuming declarer wins with dummys ace, East takes the second spade trick, and the contract will fail. (East uses the bidding as his guide. With three spades, South would probably have bid four spades, not passed out three notrump.) Note also that if South has the spade queen, Wests king is dead anyway. (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Drugs, Inc.

He is a real loser. Andy was in the military and was discharged early with a supposed disability from a pain in his hip. He refuses to get a job, because hes disabled. Yet he plays football and basketball, roughhouses with his cousins, and spends the rest of his time playing video games and watching TV. Andy has Anna brainwashed. She is not allowed to have friends or contact her family. He also doesnt want her to work. Consequently, they dont pay their bills. His parents do. They give Andy money and enable this behavior. Worse, they put on airs to impress others and trash talk Annas family. Meanwhile, Annas family provided a home for them with the understanding that the couple would reimburse them down the road. They did this because Anna was expecting, but she subsequently miscarried. Andys family is very dysfunctional. Theyve always cleaned up his messes and made excuses for his behavior. Anna was reared in a loving, normal family atmosphere. I fear Andy has her so emotionally cowed that she has forgotten her own potential. Do we continue to keep our distance and not interfere, hoping Anna will come to her senses? Watching Through Tears Dear Watching: If Andy prevents Anna from getting a job and keeps her isolated from friends and family, it is abuse. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Give Anna the number for the Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 800799-SAFE (800-7997233). You also could call and find out what you can do. But please dont keep your distance. Anna needs to know she can count on her family to be there when she needs them. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for six years. Stan belongs to a pool league, which means the guys play in local bars. Stan and one of his buddies told us that wives are not allowed to attend games. But the other two members of the team often have their wives join them. Am I wrong for feeling left out, or should I question his motives? Peeved in Pennsylvania Dear Peeved: Obviously, Stan doesnt want you around when he plays pool. The motive could be completely innocent. He may prefer to have one night with just the guys, or he may think your presence will affect his game. But its also possible that he uses the time to drink too much or flirt with other women. Tell him youd like to come along just once to see him play, and then if you trust him, leave it alone. Dear Annie: You told In the Middle that her overweight daughter, Barbara, is an adult and her choices are her own, and so are the consequences. Are you saying Barbara chose to be fat and deserves to be the target of her relatives negative remarks? No one chooses to be fat, and there is a lot of data saying there is a genetic component and that dieting doesnt work. Barbara and her mother both need to tell Dad and Grandma that they dont want to hear any more about it and from then on walk out whenever the subject is brought up. M. Dear M.: Oh, for heavens sake. Regular readers of this column know we have said many times that weight is affected by many things, including genetics, and that negative feedback is counterproductive. Barbara may not choose to be overweight, but she does decide what she eats and how much she exercises. Those choices belong to her, and she should take responsibility for them. Mom has already asked Dad and the other relatives to stop saying unkind things about Barbaras weight, and it hasnt made a dent. Mom is stressing out and needs to step back and let Barbara handle this herself. Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

just tried to keep my head and just keep hitting my golf shots, and playing the golf course how I wanted to play it and just give myself opportunities. De Jonge, from Zimbabwe, missed the fairway on the 560-yard 16th. Today, playing a little bit down breeze, all youve got to do is get one in the fairway, de Jonge said. Its almost a mid-iron in there, so that was definitely a turning point, you know, the bad tee shot there. Blixt had a 70 to finish third at 20 under. Jason Day pulled within three strokes of Moore and de Jonge with a birdie on No. 16, but closed with a double bogey on the par-4 18th. He had a 65 to finish fourth at 18 under. The only blemish was obviously the missed green on 18, Day said. But I thought I was going to shoot 59 today, just the way things were going. I was hitting it good. I was putting it good, too. I just didnt capitalize on the opportunities I had on the back nine. Moore birdied the second and third holes to take a one-stroke lead over playing partners Blixt and de Jonge, and birdied the seventh hole to move two shots ahead. De Jonge pulled even with birdies on Nos. 8 and 9 and they remained tied through 15, going to the 16th tee at 23 under. I played nicely all week, de Jonge said. Hats off to Ryan. Hee played great, especially down the stretch. He made a couple tough shots in there on 17 and 18, and he pulled them off when he needed to. Bill Lunde was fifth at 15 under after a 66. He jumped from 157th to 128th on the money list, with the final top 125 getting full tour cards for next season.

The contact hooked Stewart to send him into a spin, and his car lifted into the air and sailed on its roof and then on its side over several other cars. It created chaos through the pack, which was running three-wide in a frantic dash to the finish. I just screwed up. I turned down and cut across Michael and crashed the whole field, Stewart said. It was my fault, blocking and trying to stay where I was at. I was trying to win the race and I was trying to stay ahead of Matt there and Michael got a great run on the bottom and had a big head of steam, and when I turned down, I turned across the front of his car. Just a mistake on my part but cost a lot of people a bad day. Stewart gamely waved to the crowd as he climbed from his battered car, while Jimmie Johnson sat on the ledge of Earnhardts window for a lift back to the garage. Everywhere they looked, they saw crumpled cars. Five-time Talladega winner Earnhardt said enough is enough with the carnage. If this was what we did every week, I wouldnt be doing it, he said. Ill just put it to you that way. If this was how we raced every week, Id find another job. Thats what the package is doing. Its really not racing. Its a little disappointing. It cost a lot of money right there. If this is how were going to continue to race and nothing is going to change, how about NASCAR build the cars? Itll save us a lot of money. Jeff Gordon was scored in second-place and Kyle Busch in third, but NASCAR was sorting the final order almost an hour after the finish. That was the craziest, craziest finish Ive ever experienced at Talladega, Gordon said. It was just insane. I remember when coming to Talladega was fun, and I havent experienced that in a long time. That was bumper cars at 200 mph. I dont know anybody who likes that. NASCARContinued from Page B1 who singled for his third hit in the goahead rally. They keep us in the ballgame and some timely hits from this kid, and the rest of the guys coming off the bench, thats really been the formula. The Nationals, who had never come close to making the playoffs since moving from Montreal in 2005, overcame a wild start by 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez. They limited the Cardinals to just three hits. All the credit in the world goes to the bullpen, Gonzalez said. Ive been saying it all year. The reason why weve been so successful is these guys come in and shut it down. Rookie reliever Ryan Mattheus needed just two pitches to bail out the Nationals in the seventh with St. Louis ahead 2-1. Moore, another rookie, put them ahead soon after that, Tyler Clippard worked around an error in the eighth and Drew Storen saved it with a 1-2-3 ninth. The NL East champion Nationals led the majors with 98 wins this season, and brought postseason baseball to Washington for the first time since 1933. The Nats go for a 2-0 series lead Monday when Jordan Zimmermann opposes Jaime Garcia. This team is not hanging our heads, St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright said. We can come back and win this easily. The Cardinals made it to the best-offive division series by beating Atlanta in the wild-card matchup Friday. But St. Louis wasted a 10-strikeout gem by Wainwright, failing to capitalize enough on Gonzalezs career high-tying seven walks and frustrating its towel-waving fans. Mattheus diffused a bases-loaded, none-out threat in the seventh, getting cleanup man Allen Craig to ground into a forceout at the plate and then inducing a double-play grounder from Yadier Molina. Craig led the National League with a .400 average with runners in scoring position and Molina batted .321 in those situations. It was a big moment, Mattheus said. It gave us life. The guys said, Hey, we can win this ballgame. A standing-room-only crowd of 47,078, among the largest at 7-year-old Busch Stadium, bundled up for a game that began in 54-degree chill and featured kaleidoscope late-afternoon shadows that bedeviled hitters for several innings. Rookie shortstop Pete Kozma misplayed Michael Morses grounder for an error to open the eighth and set up the Nationals go-ahead rally. Desmond followed with a single off Mitchell Boggs, putting runners at the corners. Danny Espinsoa sacrificed, leaving runners at second and third, and Kurt Suzuki struck out. In a series of moves, the Nationals sent up Chad Tracy to pinch hit, the Cardinals switched to lefty Marc Rzepczynski and Washington subbed in Moore, who had two of their three pinch homers this season. Rzepczynski pretty much hit his location but Moore poked it to right field and both runners scored easily. I was just trying to calm myself down and try to make some things happen and not strike out up there, Moore said. As, all to Detroit. The Tigers swept Oakland in the 2006 AL championship series, winning the series on Magglio Ordonezs homer in Game 4 which was Detroits last sudden-death postseason win before Sunday. Omar Infante and Cabrera hit back-to-back singles off Grant Balfour with one out in the ninth. With runners on first and third, Prince Fielder was intentionally walked, bringing up Kelly, who had stayed in the game as the designated hitter after pinch-running the previous inning. Was looking for a fastball and I got it, Kelly said. Its a great feeling, to be able to go out there in that situation and do that. Kellys fly to right was deep enough to score Infante without a play at the plate. It was another big playoff moment for Kelly, who hit a home run last year when the Tigers beat the New York Yankees in the decisive fifth game of the division series.
