C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerINVERNESS The first step was taken Tuesday to change the appearance of next years tax bills with the inclusion of a flat fee for fire services. At a special meeting, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), by a 4-1 vote, agreed to proceed with the implementation of a municipal services benefit unit (MSBU) for fire services. The rate under discussion is $100 down to $53 per residential unit. To keep our options open as we progress through the budget discussion, we would suggest that the board entertain an MSBU rate at $100 down to $53, County Attorney Richard Wesch advised the board as membersformed the motion. Wesch explained that similar to the MSBU for solid waste management, which is set at $25 per year but could be raised to as much as $100 per year, the fire service MSBU rate could be reevaluated annually. In a nutshell, we would like a motion to proceed at a rate from $100 to $53, Wesch said. Weschdiscussed the exemption policy, advising adoption of exemptions for government parcels and institutional taxexempt parcels, but taking no action on hardship exemption or vacancy credit for mobile home/RV parks. Commissioner Dennis Damato moved approval, seconded by Commissioner John JJ Kenney. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said she would like to see more of the current fire services tax (a municipal services taxing unit or MSTU that is based on taxable value) moved to the MSBU. Commission Chairman Joe Meek said under the motion Bays request was possible because the range of $100 to $53 offered a big window. Keep in mind that if the BU rate is at $100, your TU millage will drop from its current level of 0.8014 to 0.2144, Wesch replied.

Shes friendly and bubbly, utterly guileless, warm and welcoming. She loves life. Everything is awesome. You are her friend, even if you just met her. Born with Williams syndrome, a genetic condition present at birth, Katelyn is one of about 20,000 people in the U.S. with this curious condition that is marked by uber-friendliness and social ability; a lack of bias, prejudice and distrust; innate musical gifts and high verbal skills. On the down side, those with Williams syndrome often experience life-threatening cardiovascular problems, developmental delays and learning disabilities. Most adults with Williams syndrome live at home or in some sort of supportive housing. Currently, 20-year-old Katelyn is in the transition program for culinary arts at Withlacoochee Technical Institute. Its been my dream forever, she says. She would love to own her own bakery some day. Whether thats a realistic goal or not doesnt keep her from dreaming. Its in her DNA to be optimistic. Katelyn developed her love for baking when she worked at Publix in the bakery at a job training program as a student at Citrus High School. She loved it and they loved her, said Katelyns mother, Katie Taulbee. She graduated from CHS with a special diploma. Prior to that, she attended special education and mainstream classes at Floral City Elementary School and went to CREST for middle school, which she loved. Mrs. Taulbee said Katelyn was a blue baby at birth an indication of a possible heart defect. After being sent to All Childrens Hospital, doctors found a mild heart problem, which meant regular checkups with a cardiologist. At her checkup when she was 3 1/2, her cardiologist said she looks WILLIAMS SYNDROME May is Williams Syndrome Awareness Month. To read more about it, visit online at www.williams-syndrome.org.

However, Seven Rivers already has an alliance with Munroe, based on cardiology expertise. The Naples-based company will operate the Ocala hospital in partnership with the University of Floridas Shands Hospital. Gary D. Newsome, Health Managements president and CEO, confirmed they are negotiating a long-term lease for the 421-bed facility. Building market networks will improve Seven Rivers owner to lease Ocala hospital See HOSPITAL / Page A2 N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Glenn Kilgus had a huge heart. Both he and Rose, his wife of 22 years, were survivors of heart disease and avid, generous supporters of the American Heart Association and cardiac research. He believed that was our purpose in life, that if you can give, you give, Mrs. Kilgus said. Glenn Arthur Kilgus died April 11. He was 81. He had the kindest heart, said Katie Lucas, Nature Coast EMS public information officer. I knew him when I worked with the Cattle Barons Ball and the (Citrus Memorial) hospitals Heart Ball. Glenn never said no. He and his wife, they didnt just give money, they got involved and participated in committee meetings. He had good ideas, and he wanted to help and to do things for people. Born and raised in Chicago, Glenn didnt marry until he met Rose when he was in his late 50s. They worked together at Cotter & Company and drank a lot of coffee together, Mrs. Kilgus said. I was his first and only love, she said. When they married 22 years ago, Mrs. Kilgus had three children from a previous marriage. He was an awesome dad, said stepdaughter Anita Rose Beinor. He was so grateful that he had married into a family where he instantly inherited three children family meant everything to him. Glenn Kilgus: A huge heart Glenn Kilgus See KILGUS / Page A2

assessment, the lower the TU millage could become. Commissioner Scott Adams said he did not support the MSBU, and alone voted no when the vote was called. I think the ad valorem tax base is the way to go, Adams said. I think this board creating another tax, which I do feel MSBUs and TUs are, are just another tax, isnt the right way to go. The next step will be a public hearing on May 14. Before Damato madehis motion, Adams asked for a public referendum for residents to vote on whether they wanted MSBUs and MSTUs. Kenney seconded the motion for discussion only. If youre talking a referendum, youre talking 2014 or a special election and youre talking money; were trying to do the right thing, Kenney said. We were hired to do this job, and if were not doing this job, well find out in 2014. Only Adams voted in favor of his motion. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy told the board funding was needed for safety. He said some of his frontline vehicles are 1989 models. Some of the old firehouses have structural issues and, with population shifts, are now in the wrong locations. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com. When Glenn and Rose moved to Florida in 1994, they immediately got involved in the community, with Glenn opening his wallet and putting to good use his innate ability to get people to open theirs. He loved going to all the local restaurants, and hed stop at every table talking to people, Beinor said. On his way out hed tell the restaurant managers, who all knew him, Ill be hitting you up for a donation soon, and they rarely, if ever, said no to Glenn Kilgus. He read the Chronicle from cover to cover, clipping coupons, Beinor said. Hed take note of every pancake breakfast for Scouts and go to every car wash. Anything involving kids, he would give to. He made handmade cypress clocks and gave them away to organizations raising funds. He and Rose delivered meals to the homebound for the county and belonged to a number of clubs the New York Club (even though he was from Chicago), the Filipino Club, the Eagles and the German-American and Italian clubs, MOPAR, the Highlands Civic Association. Were party people, explained Mrs. Kilgus. Glenn loved people. Beinor said if her dad asked, How are you? he sincerely wanted to know. He was caring and compassionate, she said. By the time he was done talking to people, he knew everything about them. Glenn Kilgus was naturally curious. He loved thrift stores and flea markets, especially Cowboy Junction, and loved to snoop through things people were selling. He was an avid reader, about history and war. His teams were the Chicago Bears and Cubs. He loved Joes Family Restaurant and the Rustic Ranch and Frosties from Wendys. He was gallant, a gentleman, and looked dapper in a tuxedo. He also loved calling people who lived in Chicago whenever he heard about a snowstorm. Its 80 degrees here in Florida, hed say and then laugh. But he would also invite them to come and visit. He made you feel good to be around him, Katie Lucas said. He inspired you to be better. He made you want to be a better person.

Children with Williams syndrome have a characteristic look: a small, upturned nose, wide mouth with a long upper lip length and puffiness around the eyes. Those with blue or green eyes often have a white lacey starburst pattern on their irises. On the spectrum, Katelyns condition is considered mild, Katelyns father, Terry Taulbee, said. She has mostly outgrown her heart problems. Shes petite, with a wide grin and a mane of enviably blonde curls. One of her biggest challenges is learning to distrust people and be more aware of stranger danger. This summer, as she did last summer, Katelyn will be attending the Academy of Country Musics Lifting Lives program, a music camp in Nashville designed for young people with developmental disabilities. The campers work with country music artists and perform on stage at the Grand Ole Opry. Katelyn doesnt play an instrument, but she can sit at the piano and tap away and it sounds very melodic, Mrs. Taulbee said. She loves to sing. She loves to dance. She dances and Hula-hoops at the same time. While in Nashville, the campers also participate in research studies at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. This year the camp is exclusively for those with Williams syndrome, with an emphasis on stranger danger. At 20, Katelyn has a boyfriend, Mikey, who also has Williams syndrome. They met when she was 4 at a conference in St. Petersburg, where Mikey lives. They lost touch for about 10 years, then serendipitously met in a gift shop in North Carolina in 2011. I turned around and saw him and said, Mikey! and he said, Katelyn! His mom gave us their number, and we reconnected, she says, crying. Im crying because Im so happy. He makes my life so much better. Mrs. Taulbee said Williams syndrome conferences and events theres a Walk for Williams Saturday, May 11, at Demens Landing Park in St. Petersburg are smile therapy because you cant help but smile when youre among such genuinely happy people. Katelyn considers Williams syndrome a blessing because, unlike most people whose moods change, shes happy all the time. Shes good at cheering people up, Mrs. Taulbee said. Even in uncomfortable situations, like a funeral or if someones in the hospital, and you dont know what to say, Katelyn always knows what to say.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.

Partnerships like these build improved access to care and better position us to compete. Newsome added he expects the acquisition pipeline will remain very active in the near future with results to share in the next few months. Speaking by webcast on first quarter results, he described 2013 as a transition year as heath care reform details become known. He said first-quarter results did not meet expectations. We have seen a decline in volumes across the board, he said. These are challenging times as we work through the shortterm pressures of reform. Based on recent acquisitions and joint venture activity, I believe our growth prospects are as bright as ever. The companys stated strategy is to acquire underperforming non-urban general acute care hospitals that are available at a reasonable price. Health Management has owned Seven Rivers since 2003. It currently owns/leases 23 hospitals in Florida, 71 nationwide, including Brooksville Regional Hospital and Spring Hill Regional Hospital. Citrus County has had long established quality cardiology expertise, said Joyce Brancato, Seven Rivers CEO. Seven Rivers Regional Medical Centers alliance with Munroe Heart was initiated to complement and augment the care that was already being provided to our residents. She said the alliance with the Munroe Heart physicians Robert Feldman, M.D.; Gregory von Mering, M.D.; Richard Han, M.D.; and Edward Santoian, M.D. brings a level of advanced cardiac care not previously available. For example, a number of these physicians do a procedure called TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement) which is a new type of heart valve repair using highly advanced techniques and equipment. Brancato explained the pre-procedure workup is done locally, then the patient goes to Ocala for the procedure. The alliance has allowed us to implement best practices and facilitates a streamlined admission for the patient, she said. Following the procedure, the patient is returned back home to Citrus County for follow-up by their own physician. Seven Rivers also has alliances with the University of Florida and Shands HealthCare.

P AT F AHERTY Staff writerE nergy efficiency, often cited as our fifth fuel after coal, petroleum, nuclear and alternative, is the force behind some new single-family homes. Weve started to look at designing houses differently, said Fred Kelley of Tampa Bay Build ers, to see if we can look at how each ingredient impacts the other ingredients in longevity, healthiness and energy efficiency. It was a process started about five years ago as they reviewed Energy Star ratings and other measures including Home Energy Ratings System (HERS), looking for alternatives to traditional home building. We started treating the house as a system. he said. If you design a system so everything works together, you get to analyze each thing. The process led to a new wall system made of structural insulated panels, known as SIPs. Kelley said they are 30 percent stronger than block and far exceed basic qualifications. Its simple technology, but it does things you cant do with stick framing or block, he said, citing the insulation factor as an example. But they discovered the house would be too tight, meaning outside air would be needed. So they took that as an opportunity to double filter it for cleaner inside air. That was just the product of a problem, he said, but it started our thinking again. Floor temperature came into play, and the cost of air conditioning required to keep it comfortable. They found the more flooring tile used, the lower the air conditioning bill. Next they looked at the air-conditioning system and how to make it more efficient. The result was improving the duct-vent system for about a 20 percent efficiency gain. With savings from lower a/c electric costs, they could afford a more efficient unit to further reduce operating costs. LED lighting, placement of windows and landscaping offered additional energy savings. It was a lot of little things, Kelley said. Everything works together. They have expanded the concept to include more ecofriendly, healthier and natural products such as porcelain tile, bamboo flooring, and carpet and paint with no off-gases. There is less construction waste, and reduced water consumption is another factor. Its backwards of how everything was done in the past, Kelley said. You dont have a house design, its a system. You can take any house any style, use my system and make it at least 80 percent more efficient. But the turndown has not helped, building costs have not changed, and the available housing inventory poses another problem. So their challenge became what to build, at a price that will attract buyers. The result will be a 10-home project that Kelley calls a small community in The Preserve at Cinnamon Ridge off Rock Crusher Road. The unattached, single-family homes will be 1,500 square feet, 80 percent energy efficient, high indoor air quality with a solar panel option. They will sell for about $150,000. We think there is a niche for that right now, a market in that range, he said. Weve found a product we think will sell. Understanding a green home can be a challenge, Kelley has set up a model as a learning center to show how the components work together. For the rest of this development, every house will be that way, he said. Ive built my last block home. Around the COUNTY Man killed in vehicle accident A man was killed in an vehicle accident Wednesday on North Meeting Tree Boulevard. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 2007 Dodge Nitro was traveling north on the road when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle traveled off the road onto the right shoulder and hit a tree. The driver of the vehicle was transported to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, where he later died.Traffic signal being activated today The traffic signal at North Meadowcrest Boulevard and State Road 44 will be fully operational starting today. Meadowcrest, east of Crystal River, is bordered by S.R. 44 and County Road 486. The light is on the south side of Meadow crest on S.R. 44, in front of the Family Dollar store. The signal became necessary after the West Citrus Gov ern ment Center opened last year, as well as Family Dollar. Workers will be on hand for the next couple of days to monitor the signal. Tribute to honor fallen officers The National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers (NARLEO) plans a special tribute to fallen officers at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 15, at Cooter Pond Park in Inverness.

EMT, paramedic classes set May 23 The next Nature Coast EMS emergency medical technician class begins Monday, May 23, at the Nature Coast EMS Administration building, 3876 W. Country Hill Drive in Lecanto. The EMT program course is 16 weeks and is designed to prepare students to provide basic life support measures as a member of an ambulance crew, at the scene of an accident, during transport to a hospital or medical facility and in the medical facility. It will prepare students to sit for the Florida Bureau of EMS EMT Certification Exam. To register, contact student services and complete an application.

Park tenants to confront shareholders Chris Van Ormer Staff writerA Homosassa man is taking his fight against rising lot rents for residents of manufactured home parks to Chicago this week to confront park shareholders. There are privately held landlease companies who understand it is better to develop a partnership relationship that works best as a business model, said Edward Green, the Walden Woods resident who was behind a bill that failed in this years state legislative session to stabilize rent increases. Instead of killing the goose that lays golden eggs, some have realized its better to work together and prosper for a longterm relationship. Green, who already has started work on moving another bill next year, forms half the Florida delegation from the National Manufactured Home Owners Association attending the May 7 and 8 shareholders meeting in Chicago of Equity Life Style Properties (ELS), the nations largest corporate owner of manufactured home communities. Green is accompanied by Pam Bournival of Sarasota, along with representatives from Washington, Oregon, Utah, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Colorado, Maryland, Virginia, New York and Minnesota. Association members plan to emphasize how seniors and lowincome households need affordable housing. Although corporations must generate a return on investment, aggressive profits are destroying the market, Green said. The association has said corporations have attempted to seek increases as high as 25 percent from seniors on fixed incomes. It intends to work with management of companies such as ELS and other major leased-land corporations to stabilize rents to more reasonable levels.

He could sing and bring the house down, the Rev. Larry Powers said at the memorial celebration of life for Dr. Robert F. Dr. Bob Blackburn on Tuesday at the Inverness Church of God. Blackburn, a longtime Citrus County Christian minister, died May 3. He was 72. At Tuesdays service, a recording of Blackburn singing The Lords Prayer caused friends and family both to smile and to weep. He had an amazing tenor voice, said nephew Robert McFarland. He inspired me and influenced me with his professionalism. He was called to sing. When Blackburn served as pastor at the First United Methodist Church in Inverness in the 1990s, he formed and directed the Liberty Choir, which became known for large-scale, theatrical productions, Easter cantatas and patriotic extravaganzas that packed the house. He liked everything big and bold and spectacular. He built the grand sanctuary at the Methodist church on Pleasant Grove Road, with its ceiling beams so huge they had to be delivered by trailer in the middle of the night when traffic down State Road 44 from Interstate 75 could be shut down. Bob was a celebration, McFarland said. He wore blue suede shoes. Dr. Bob was dapper, always dressed well, his dark hair and beard always meticulously groomed. He brought an aura of professionalism and a spirit of worship wherever he went to sing, and he went all over and would sing anywhere, said Bishop Steven Foster of Released Ministries in Orlando. Wherever you asked Dr. Bob to go and sing, he would go, because he knew people needed to hear about Jesus. Bob was my traveling compadre and my friend. Dr. Bob was not without fault, nor were his life and ministry without failure. An asterisk will always be next to his name. In 1997, Blackburn left the Methodist church in shame after pleading no contest to charges of misdemeanor sexual harassment after a church secretary accused him of making sexual advances toward her. As a result, he lost everything. His wife divorced him and many in the community shunned him. He found it difficult to find work. Those were dark days and years for him. Everyone experiences down time when you need a friend, Powers said. Im thankful God allowed me to be a friend to Bob when he needed one and we were friends. Blackburn went on to use his own brokenness to minister to others, eventually working with a number of churches Victory Christian Center in Dunnellon, House of Power in Hernando, House of Love in Hernando, Released Ministries in Orlando and others. He sang about hope, grace, redemption and forgiveness. A favorite song of his was, Try Again. In 2000, Blackburn told the Chronicle Everyone has, or will have, a moment of shame, of sin, of guilt, and only the blood of Jesus can wash it away. ... Vince Lombardi once said, The greatest achievement is not in never falling, but in getting up after you fall. There is hope in Jesus, and all of us need a second chance. He was a servant, said Merle Foster, Bishop Fosters wife. He believed if you got a prayer through to God, it was going to be answered. He was ready to go, and now hes singing in heaven. Local minister Dr. Bob Blackburn laid to rest Tuesday Robert Blackburn Dr. Bob died May 3 at 72. Signs warn of predators Associated PressSTARKE Brian Speer thought he had completed all of his obligations when he registered in Bradford County as a convicted sex predator after serving an eight-year prison sentence for child molestation. But now, in addition to submitting to a public registry for sex offenders, he has a permanent reminder of his crime posted right in his front yard: a bright red sign reading, Brian Speer is a convicted Sexual Predator and lives at this location. The sign is one of 18 the Bradford County Sheriffs Office erected in mid-April outside the homes of convicted sex predators. The signs have been praised by many residents in the small rural county southwest of Jacksonville, but some question whether the new measure reaches too far and could be harassment against people who have served jail terms and already submit to the public registry. Neighboring Baker County started a similar program six years ago. I think its a lot of bull, said Speer, who was convicted of lewd or lascivious molestation in 2004. I believe that anybody that has any criminal background should have a sign in front of their house if we have one in front of ours. Bradford officials say they are working within the discretion afforded by state statutes, which mandate that the Florida Department of Law En force ment use the Internet to notify the public of all sexual predators and requires a sheriff or police chief conduct community notification of a sexual predators presence. It does not specify how that community notification must take place. It traditionally has been done through fliers, print and television media, and websites, but Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith thought his office could do more.

Birthday An endeavor that youre ready to write off might take on new life in the coming months. Although you might not get what you initially hoped, youll still turn a nice profit. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You might feel that you cant accomplish something without assistance. Normally, you work far better when alone, and today will be no different. Gemini (May 21-June 20) By all means, be helpful to those who genuinely need assistance, but know when someone else can handle something without your interference. Cancer (June 21-July 22) You should be realistic about your expectations for social engagements. If you dont, you could end up disappointed. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Normally, you have the tenacity to achieve your desired results. However, you might be too willing to throw in the towel today. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Most of the time, you tend to be a very flexible person, but you can be very rigid as well, if youre not careful. Dont cling to untenable positions. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If someone requests you make good on a debt or obligation, do your best to do so, even if you have more time. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There are always two sides to every issue. Try to be flexible in your outlook, so you dont overlook a quality solution. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You might think youre only temporarily shelving an unpleasant task, but this brief respite could turn into an eternity. Better to just get down to it. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If your attitude is glum rather than gregarious, youll only make yourself and those around you miserable. Buck up or go home. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you fail to attend to certain domestic responsibilities, you will amass an extraordinary level of guilt. You shouldnt let this happen. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Its best not to discuss something youre passionate about with a pessimistic associate. By the time he or she is through commenting, you might wrongly feel like ditching the whole thing. Aries (March 21-April 19) It behooves you to be as prudent as possible in the management of your funds. Dont borrow what could be difficult to repay.

Underwood steps in for Faith Hill who announced last month she would not be back for a seventh season. Underwood will sing a new version of Waiting All Day for Sunday Night, the network said Tuesday. Producer Fred Gaudelli said after Hill informed him in February, Underwood was the only performer he pursued. She was under consideration for the role when NBC first broadcast the Sunday night NFL games in 2006. Pink sang the opening tune, set to Joan Jetts I Hate Myself for Loving You, for that first season before Hill came on. A former American Idol champion and six-time Grammy winner, Underwood is married to hockey star Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators. The 30year-old Oklahoma native sang the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl. Underwood is signed up to star in NBCs live broadcast of The Sound of Music this year. Michael Jackson show to debut LAS VEGAS Michael Jackson spent his life breaking music industry records. Four years after his death, the pop stars estate has delivered another first: Jackson is now the only person, place or thing to have inspired two Cirque du Soleil shows. The troupe presented a sneak peak of its new Jackson tribute show, ONE, at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino Tuesday in Las Vegas. The show appears to share many features with Cirques touring arena Michael Jackson show, THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR. In both, performers dance, somersault and glide above the crowd in dramatic riffs on Jacksons number one hits. In the new show, the songs are longer and the choreography is designed for the smaller scale of a theater. ONE opens June 29. Both shows are co-produced by the Jackson estate. George Jones show goes on as tribute NASHVILLE, Tenn. Before he passed away last month, George Jones had scheduled a star-packed final concert for November. It turns out the show will go on. Jones widow, Nancy said Tuesday that Garth Brooks Kid Rock and several more performers have agreed to keep the Nov. 22 date and appear in tribute to Jones at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The show was previously sold out. Jones died April 26 at a Nashville hospital at 81. Thousands attended a memorial last week in Nashville to celebrate a defining male voice of country music. Nancy Jones also said Charlie Daniels Jamey Johnson The Oak Ridge Boys Montgomery Gentry and Travis Tritt have signed on. Lineup updates will appear on Jones website, georgejones.com. From wire reports Associated Press Carrie Underwood performs April 7 during the 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Underwood will take over the theme song for Sunday Night Football. She will sing a new version of Waiting All Day for Sunday Night, the network said Tuesday.

Associated PressLONDON When Ray Harryhausen was 13, he was so overwhelmed by King Kong that he vowed he would create otherworldly creatures on film. He fulfilled his desire as an adult, thrilling audiences with skeletons in a sword fight, a gigantic octopus destroying the Golden Gate Bridge, and a six-armed dancing goddess. On Tuesday, Harryhausen died at Londons Hammersmith Hospital, where he had been receiving treatment for about a week. He was 92. Biographer and longtime friend Tony Dalton confirmed the specialeffects titans death, saying it was too soon to tell the exact cause. He described Harryhausens passing as very gentle and very quiet. Ray did so much and influenced so many people, Dalton said. He recalled his friends wonderfully funny, brilliant sense of humor and love of Laurel and Hardy, adding that, His creatures were extraordinary, and his imagination was boundless. Though little known by the general public, Harryhausen made 17 movies that are cherished by devotees of film fantasy. George Lucas, who borrowed some of Harryhausens techniques for his Star Wars films, commented: I had seen some other fantasy films before, but none of them had the kind of awe that Ray Harryhausens movies had. The late science fiction author Ray Bradbury, a longtime friend and admirer, once remarked: Harryhausen stands alone as a technician, as an artist and as a dreamer. ... He breathed life into mythological creatures he constructed with his own hands. Harryhausens method was as old as the motion picture itself: stop motion. He sculpted characters from 3 inches to 15 inches tall and photographed them one frame at a time in continuous poses, thus creating the illusion of motion. In todays movies, such effects are achieved digitally. Harryhausen admired the three-dimensional quality of modern digital effects, but he still preferred the old-fashioned way of creating fantasy. Jason and the Argonauts (1963) demonstrated the intricacy of Harryhausens tricks. He had three live actors dueling seven skeletons. It took four months to produce a few minutes on the screen. The great-grandson of African explorer David Livingstone, Ray Frederick Harryhausen was born in Los Angeles on June 19, 1920. He is survived by his wife, and daughter Vanessa.

Microsoft touching up Windows 8 to address gripesSAN FRANCISCO Microsoft is retooling the latest version of its Windows operating system to address complaints and confusion that have been blamed for deepening a slump in personal computer sales. The tune-up announced Tuesday wont be released to consumers and businesses until later this year. The changes, part of a software package given the codename Blue, are a tacit acknowledgment of the shortcomings in Windows 8, a radical overhaul of Microsoft Corp.s ubiquitous operating system. With the makeover it released last October, Microsoft hoped to play a more prominent role in the growing mobile device market while still maintaining its dominance in PCs. But Windows 8s design, which emphasizes interactive tiles and touch controls, seems to have befuddled as many people as it has impressed. One leading research firm, International Data Corp., says Windows 8 contributed to a 14 percent decline in worldwide PC sales during the first three months of the year the biggest year-over-year drop ever.Bangladesh garment accident death toll passes 700 DHAKA, Bangladesh Hundreds of survivors of last months collapse of a building housing garment factories in Bangladesh protested for compensation Tuesday, as the death toll from the countrys worst-ever industrial disaster passed 700. The police control room overseeing the recovery operation said the death toll stood at 705 on Tuesday afternoon as workers pulled more bodies out of the wreckage of the eightstory building that was packed with workers at five garment factories when it collapsed on April 24. The factories were making clothing bound for major retailers around the world. The disaster is the worst ever in the garment sector, surpassing the 1911 garment disaster in New Yorks Triangle Shirtwaist factory, which killed 146 workers, and more recent tragedies such as a 2012 fire that killed about 260 people in Pakistan and one in Bangladesh that killed 112, also in 2012. It is also one of the deadliest industrial accidents ever.US job postings fell in March; hiring slowedWASHINGTON U.S. employers posted fewer job openings in March compared with February and slowed overall hiring, underscoring a weak month of job growth. The Labor Department said Tuesday that job openings fell 1.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted 3.8 million jobs. Total hiring declined 4.3 percent to 4.3 million. The unemployed faced heavy competition in March. There were 3.1 unemployed people, on average, for each job opening. Thats above the ratio of 2 to 1 that is typical in a healthy economy.Survey: US home prices up 10.5 percent in past yearWASHINGTON A survey shows U.S. home prices rose 10.5 percent in March compared with a year ago, the biggest gain since March 2006. Core Logic, a real estate data provider, said Tuesday that annual home prices have now increased for 13 straight months. Prices are rising in part because more buyers are bidding on a limited supply of homes for sale. Prices increased in 46 states over the past year 11 of them posting double-digit gains. And when excluding distressed sales, which include foreclosures and short sales, prices rose in every state. A short sale is when a home sells for less than what is owed on the mortgage. US consumers cut back on credit card use in MarchWASHINGTON Americans cut back on using their credit cards in March, suggesting many were reluctant to take on high-interest debt to make purchases. Consumer borrowing rose just $8 billion in March from February to a seasonally adjusted $2.81 trillion, the Federal Reserve said Tuesday. It was the smallest increase in eight months.

US 19 352-795-7223 Associated PressNEW YORK The Dow Jones industrial average punched through another milestone Tuesday, closing above 15,000 for the first time just two months after recovering the last of its losses from the 2008 financial crisis. Good economic reports, strong corporate earnings and fresh support from central banks helped ease investor concerns about another economic slowdown. Many had been on the lookout for signs that a spring swoon would derail the rally, as happened in each of the past three years. Instead, the Dow continued its epic ascent of 2013, which has seen it climb 1,952 points almost 15 percent since Jan. 1. The thing thats been driving stocks is rising confidence, said James Paulsen, chief investment strategist at Wells Capital Management. Economic growth, job creation and the housing market have been better than expected. The Dow closed at 15,056.20, up 87.31 points, or 0.6 percent. The Standard & Poors 500 index added 8.46 points to a record 1,625.96, a gain of 0.5 percent. It has jumped 199 points this year, or 14 percent. The record close extends the stock markets comeback from the depths of the financial crisis. Both indexes reached all-time highs earlier this year, then kept rising, largely driven by optimism that the U.S. economy will keep gaining strength. We dont think people are giving enough credit to the strength of the economy, said Ryan Detrick, a senior technical strategist at Schaeffers Investment Research. We still like the market. Detrick said he was particularly encouraged by the resurgence in smaller stocks, which suggested a broad recovery beyond larger companies. The Russell 2000 index gained eight points to close at 967.82. It has risen 14 percent this year. The S&P has climbed higher for six straight months the longest stretch of gains since a seven-month run that started in March 2009, when the market hit a financial crisis low, and ended in October 2009. All 10 industries in the S&P 500 have joined in the rally. Health care companies have led the way, up 19 percent.

A special thank you to our entertainment (The Brenda Kaye, Deep Water Band): they played county and oldie rock and roll for more than six hours for our members. ... Thank you all. Margaret Neighbarger Inverness Stop discrimination My name is Zlatko Kendic. My wife and I have lived in Homosassa for six years. We have both tried to get a job, filling out a lot of applications, but no jobs. We feel that because we have a European last name its discrimination. I dont think that is right. We are all human beings, regardless what our last names are. This problem is only here in Homosassa and Crystal River. The thing is mostly all the people that live here are not even born here, but they have American last names and we dont. We dont think this is fair. We had a deputy come to our house and she asked me twice are you Russian? Russian is all together different than Bosnian or Serbian. They are both in Europe, but speak different languages. These people need to go back to school to learn history and geography and they will then understand that its different. This is not the only problem. There are more problems. Please, people, stop discriminating. Zlatko Kendic Homosassa Good time at bingo On April 17, 2013, the VFW Post 10087 in Beverly Hills had an afternoon of bingo for some nursing facilities in the area. On hand were residents from Life Care of Citrus County, Diamond Ridge, Nature Coast, Woodland Terrace and Barrington Place. There were 45 residents along with volunteers from the ladies and mens auxiliary from VFW Post 10087 and also ladies auxiliary from VFW Post 4252 came to help. A good time was had by all and we are looking forward to doing this again soon. Gerry Martin Beverly Hills A group of rich Republicans is raising money to support same-sex marriage. By doing so, they reveal a fundamental split in conservative ranks between two very different philosophies. On one side are Western or frontier conservatives, who truly believe in small government and individual choice. On the other are Southern or evangelical conservatives, who think government should be used to enforce moral values and determine personal decisions. One key supporter of gay marriage is Paul E. Singer, a billionaire hedge fund manager who has contributed heavily to many conservative causes. Hes a Jewish guy from New Jersey, not a Westerner, but he also has a gay son who is married to his partner. And when it comes to social issues, Singer identifies with the pragmatic, live-and-letlive tradition of the frontier. The concept of gay unions fits very well within our framework of individual liberty and our belief that strong families make for a stronger society, Singer toldThe New York Times. The institution of marriage is in very bad shape in this country, yet gay and lesbian couples want very much to be part of it. ... This should be what we want as conservatives, for people to cherish and respect this model and to want it for themselves. Singer represents a long and distinguished tradition that once flourished in the Republican Party. Barry Goldwater, dubbed Mr. Conservative when he ran for president on the GOP ticket in 1964, exemplified that tradition by supporting Planned Parenthood and backing a womans right to manage her own reproductive system. The organization even gives an annual award named for Goldwater, who represented Arizona in the U.S. Senate for more than 30 years and died in 1998. His granddaughter, C.C. Goldwater, now sits on the board of Planned Parenthoods Arizona affiliate, and she produced a documentary about her famous forebear that includes an interview with her mother, Joanne. My father, said Goldwaters daughter, being conservative, he felt that the government should not decide what women do with their bodies. With the movement of Southern states into the Republican Party a trend that started, ironically, with Goldwaters campaign of 1964 the Goldwater version of conservatism has been eclipsed by what might be called the Helms version: a philosophy advanced by Jesse Helms, the late senator from North Carolina, and fundamentalist preachers like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. It is a philosophy inspired more by religion than experience, by preachers more than ranchers, by following rules rather than solving problems. At its core, that philosophy says: Theres a right way and a wrong way to live, and government should regulate private behavior on social issues like abortion, marriage and prayer. Many Westerners have never cottoned to that view of conservatism. Sen. John McCain, who represents Goldwaters home state of Arizona, famously and accurately denounced Robertson and Falwell as agents of intolerance during his failed bid for the Republican nomination in 2000. The political tactics of division and slander are not our values, he said. Falwell is long dead and Robertson is largely retired, but their banner of intolerance is now carried aloft by radio talk show hosts who enforce party orthodoxy and denounce heretics who dare to stray from sacred doctrine. Republican pollster Frank Luntz offered a glimpse into the struggle splintering the GOP when he spoke recently at the University of Pennsylvania. Luntz thought he was speaking off the record, but a student recorded his candid observations and leaked them to Mother Jones magazine. Radio hosts he specifically mentioned Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin get great ratings, and they drive the message, and its really problematic, said Luntz. As an example he mentioned Sen. Marco Rubio, the Florida Republican who is getting destroyed by Limbaugh, Levin & Co. for trying to find a legitimate, long-term, effective solution to immigration that isnt the traditional Republican approach. What Luntz understands is that radio hosts do not have the best interests of the Republican Party at heart. What they care about is great ratings, and to get them, they have to emphasize divisions and exploit grievances. No matter that Rubio is bravely trying to save the Republican Party from itself. Legitimate and effective compromises dont sell on talk radio; only conflict and anger do. Republicans like Paul Singer and Frank Luntz are trying to free their party from the agents of intolerance, the Grand Inquisitors who dictate doctrine and drive away women and gays, young people and immigrants. But the odds are against them. Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at stevecokie@gmail.com. Live not as though there were a thousand years ahead of you.

Such was the case last week when the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce took the time to give recognition to people who have done some really good things. One of the most emotional moments at the chambers annual awards banquet came when Joe Silvestro was honored for his leadership in starting the Little League program in the county. Joe passed away March 26, but the chamber went on and presented the Charles B. Fitzpatrick award posthumously to Silvestros son-inlaw Joe Fallon and other members of his family who gathered at the event. Joe Silvestros story is a microcosm of the good things that happen in Citrus County. He moved to Citrus from State Island, N.Y., in the early 1970s and opened a real New York deli in Inverness. While the deli remains thriving today, it was Joes leadership in starting the Little League program and being the chief umpire for the better part of three decades that won him the love of his community. The chamber presented its Corporate Citizen Award to Steve and Jewel Lamb of the Crystal Motor Car Company for their leadership with the Feed Citrus food bank, United Way and the YMCA. Others recognized during the event included: Rebecca Martin was recognized for her leadership with the Business Womans Alliance. Courtney Pollard of theChronicle was recognized for her work with the young professionals at the chamber and was awarded the Mandi Warren Richards Rising Star Award. Paul Cash of Williams, McCraine, Wardlow and Cash PA was recognized with the Rick Quinn Distinguished Citizen Award for his volunteer work with the food bank, YMCA and the Rotary Club. Art Jones of One Rake at a Time was given the Outstanding Leadership Graduate Award for his work on cleaning up Kings Bay with his group that has enlisted hundreds of volunteers. Mike McCarthy and Sibex were recognized with the J.L. Hassell Award for business. The Key Training Center was recognized as the nonprofit organization of the year and given the John Barnes Community Award. Kassidy Lundy was recognized with the Shawn Harrison Outstanding Youth Service Award. The Plantation Inn was recognized with the Walt Connors Small Business Award. Arnold Virgilio was recognized with the Dr. O.J. Humphries Community Service Award. Nancy Hautop was named the Ambassador of the Year.

I cant believe you wrote this Sound Off. I read it and it absolutely made me sick to my stomach. A neighbor of mine was recently killed by someone who obviously couldnt hear the motorcycle. Another 90-year-oldsomething person killed somebody maybe because they couldnt hear the motorcycle. The louder the cycles are, the better. I like it because I always know where they are and you can hear them and you can see them and you know theyre there. There are way too many old people around here who have no respect for the motorcycles and cant hear themselves. This is a horrible thing to say. It would be so much harder not to know that theyre there if theyre very, very quiet. Its the older bikes that you dont hear sometimes.No kids neglected hereThis is to answer the person who wrote in the Sounding Off called Gambled away. They were talking about what about the parents of the children that went without food and paying the light bill. They have no idea what the Internet cafes were.

No intent to defraud This letter was read at the Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 23, 2013. I would like to make this available to the public that were unable to attend the meeting. At the Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 9, 2013, I had two issues to address. The first was an anonymous letter addressing the employment of Mark Kenney. I believe this issue has been resolved by the facts provided at this meeting. Unfortunately, is seems the second issue is still unresolved. At this point I would like to address the issue again. There have been many references made to an $800,000-plus fraud at the landfill. I will emphasize again that first and foremost, there was no fraudulent activity that took place between the Citrus County Landfill and Citrus Recycling. I am sure everyone would like some light shed on how this $800,000 figure was established. Once again, a local company interested in procuring the contract for the recycling materials of Citrus County compiled figures for pricing and, based on tonnage, came up with what could only be considered an estimate of possible revenue, and presented this to the Solid Waste Division. This money was never lost or stolen from the county; it was simply an individuals estimate of what revenue might be realized at current market prices. At the time, this person had just recently ventured into recycling. It was their assumption that pricing for materials were made from quotes on the OBM, which is a paper posted monthly reflecting current market prices. It is common knowledge in the industry that this is strictly a base for pricing. Prices are determined in various ways, sometimes by a contract that guarantees an outlet for materials, and at other times prices are based on quality, quantity and supply and demand. Prices fluctuate from day to day, or month to month. Some might ask why, if there was no fraud, money was given back to Citrus County. This is a very brief summary of the situation: Each and every container was weighed at the landfill scale. The containers were brought back to my facility, where they were unloaded. Individual materials were weighed, processed, and the trash from the materials deducted. These weights served a dual purpose.They provided us with the figures used to pay the organizations and the figures used to bill the county for processing fees. Therefore, at the time the county was overbilled, the organizations were also overpaid. The same tonnage was used in both instances. There was nothing to benefit from overbilling. In fact, it was the exact opposite. As an example, I will use pricing on aluminum cans, since this commodity produced the highest return rate at the time. The organizations were paid $0.32 cents per pound, or $640 per ton. I was paid $29.75 per ton for processing fees. If weights were increased, I would actually be losing $610.75 per ton on this material. So now we ask: Intent to defraud, or errors and inconsistencies addressed and reconciled? There were numerous errors on certified weight tickets produced by the landfill. I was notified of discrepancies between the landfill scale weights and weights provided by my company. I immediately, not a day or a week later, asked that the processing fees be withheld until this issue was resolved. An extensive audit and reconciliation of records took place. As I stated before, these records are available for review at the Lecanto Government Building. Mr. Stephens is more than willing to address any questions regarding this issue and can be reached at 352-5277670. At this point, I would like to let Commissioner Adams know, if there are any questions or issues he feels need to be addressed concerning the audit, Mr. Brock, Mr. Frink, Mr. Stephens and I will set an appointment for a joint meeting to ensure this issue is completely resolved to his satisfaction. Once again, thank you for your time. Sandy Messina, Citrus Recycling Lecanto Right to bear arms fundamental Re: Peter Poland, Ph.D. letter, April 17. Mr. Poland asserts the Second Amendment only applies to a well regulated militia. Whos right? Lets go back in time. As history records, a small group of delegates representing the 13 states met in Philadelphia from May 25 to Sept. 17, 1787, to form a central government. During this period they wrote the Constitution. (Pennsylvania had the largest delegation.) First and foremost, the delegates were to represent the interests of their respective states, which were many and varied. Further, the states were sovereign entities and held a deep distrust of a strong central government. They feared over time it might grow in power and usurp the states rights. (I wonder where they ever got that idea!) There was rancorous, often bitter debate between the delegates. Finally they agreed upon a document which set forth the structure and powers of this new central government, with one proviso: that in one year they would return with a set of rights the new Constitution would guarantee. Now its time to look at Pennsylvanias constitution of 1776. It stands in history as the most democratic constitution of any of the original 13 states. Prior to that, the state operated under a Charter of Privileges. The new Pennsylvania constitution had enumerated rights: XIII. That the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the state; and as standing armies in the time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not be kept up; And that the military should be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. In 1790, the state of Pennsylvania held a constitutional convention and further addressed the rights of its citizens: Right to Bear Arms, Section 21. The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned. When the First Congress convened under the new Constitution, it honored its pledge to consider the Bill of Rights. The 10 amendments were submitted in 1789 and were ratified on Dec. 15, 1791. Amendment 2 of the Bill of Rights: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. As one can see from the Pennsylvania constitution, the right of the individual to keep and bear arms was ingrained in the culture. That is why its delegates, and delegates from like-minded states, demanded the Second Amendment. Another important note: A few years back, the United States Supreme Court ruled that everywhere the term the people appears in the Constitution, it means the average citizen! David M.

Police facing questions Associated PressCLEVELAND One neighbor said a naked woman was seen crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard of the house a few years ago. Another heard pounding on the homes doors and noticed plastic bags over the windows. Both times, police showed up, the neighbors say, but never went inside. Police also paid a brief visit to the house in 2004. Now, after three women who vanished a decade ago were found captive at the peeling, rundown house Monday in a discovery that exhilarated the city, Cleveland police are facing questions for the second time in four years about their handling of missing-person cases and are conducting an internal review to see if they overlooked anything. City Safety Director Martin Flask said Tuesday that investigators had no record of any tips or calls about criminal activity at the house in the years after the victims vanished, but were still checking their police, fire and emergency databases. The three women were rescued after one of them kicked out the bottom portion of a locked screen door and used a neighbors telephone to call 911. Help me. Im Amanda Berry, she told a 911 dispatcher. Ive been kidnapped and Ive been missing for 10 years and Im, Im here, Im free now. Berry, 27, Michelle Knight, 32, and Gina DeJesus, about 23, had apparently been held captive in the house since their teens or early 20s, said Police Chief Michael McGrath. Three brothers, ages 50 to 54, were arrested. One of them, former school bus driver Ariel Castro, owned the home, situated in a poor neighborhood dotted with boarded-up houses just south of downtown Cleveland. No immediate charges were filed. A 6-year-old girl believed to be Berrys daughter was also found in the home, said Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba. He would not say who the father was or where the child was born. The women were reported by police to be in good health and were reunited with family members but remained in seclusion. Police would not say how the women were taken or how they were hidden in the same neighborhood where they had vanished. Investigators also would not say whether they were kept in restraints inside the house or sexually assaulted. Four years ago, in another part of town, Clevelands police force was heavily criticized following the discovery of 11 bodies in the home and backyard of Anthony Sowell, who was convicted and sentenced to death. The victims families in the Sowell case accused police of failing to properly investigate the disappearances because most of the women were addicted to drugs and lived in an impoverished neighborhood. For months, the stench of death hung over the house, but it was blamed on a sausage factory next door. In the wake of public outrage over the killings, a panel formed by the mayor recommended an overhaul of the citys handling of missing-person and sex crime investigations. This time, two neighbors said they called police to the Castro house on separate occasions in recent years. Elsie Cintron, who lives three houses away, said her daughter once saw a naked woman crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard several years ago and called police. But they didnt take it seriously, she said. Another neighbor, Israel Lugo, said he heard pounding on some of the doors of Castros house in November 2011. Lugo said officers knocked on the front door, but no one answered. They walked to side of the house and then left, he said. Neighbors also said they would see Castro sometimes walking a little girl to a neighborhood playground. And Cintron said she once saw a little girl looking out of the attic window of the house. Police did go to the house twice in the past 15 years, but not in connection with the womens disappearance, officials said. On Tuesday, a sign hung on a fence decorated with dozens of balloons outside the home of DeJesus parents read Welcome Home Gina. Police identified the three suspects as Ariel Castro, 52; Pedro Castro, 54; and Onil Castro, 50. Attempts to reach Ariel Castro in jail were unsuccessful. Associated PressWARREN, Mich. Lester Stiggers has been a wanted man for 43 years, but he hasnt been hiding. He lives in a onebedroom apartment, window blinds partly closed, along a busy road in a Detroit suburb. He gets by on $700 a month in Social Security benefits, usually making trips outside only to see a doctor. He needs an inhaler and 10 pills a day for his diabetes, high blood pressure and other ailments. Since he fled prison in Arkansas in 1970, Stiggers, a convicted murderer, has been a quirk of justice, living openly in one state while wanted in another. But his time as a free man may be coming to an end as the result of a twist in a decades-old saga involving the dark history of one states prison system and the social views of another states governor. Stiggers was one of two young black men given asylum in Michigan in the 1970s by William Milliken, a Midwestern governor who believed in using his powers broadly to address injustice. The fugitives claimed they were victims of unfair treatment in the South. The cases have largely been forgotten over the years and, until this spring, Stiggers thought he had been, too. By sending a letter seeking Stiggers return, Arkansas abruptly renewed its efforts to bring him back to prison where he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life. And Michigan is considering it. The man at the center of the tale is now 63. Im an invalid now. Im half dead, Stiggers said. What would their interest be to have me back? Stiggers was sent to a state prison farm at the age of 15 after he was convicted of killing his father, whom he said beat him and his mother regularly. Stiggers said he never talked about the abuse at his trial because his lawyer advised him not to testify. When Stiggers was allowed a five-day furlough for good behavior a privilege no longer available to those convicted of such serious crimes he went to Michigan, where his mother lived. Hes been there ever since. When Arkansas requested his return at the time, Milliken refused, citing, in part, the cruel and unusual treatment in Arkansas prisons. The Supreme Court clarified extradition law in 1987, creating a precedent that forced Michigan to return Phillip Chance, a convicted murderer also given sanctuary by Milliken, to Alabama in 1996. To the extent that he deserves mercy, its up to Arkansas to show mercy. Michigans hands are tied, said Curt Benson, a law professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Grand Rapids, Mich. Stiggers said he has justified Michigans faith in him. I dont smoke. I dont drink. I dont do nothin, he said during an hour-long interview. I walked away from a lot of fights. ... They told me to stay out of trouble. In 43 years, Stiggers said, hes never set foot outside the state he fled to and he hopes he never will.

Sanford back in political officeCHARLESTON, S.C. Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford on Tuesday revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat in a district that hasnt elected a Democrat in three decades. The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote. Sanford saw his political career disintegrate four years ago when he disappeared for five days, telling his staff he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. He returned to admit he had been in Argentina with his mistress. Weight-loss surgery for Gov.New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie secretly underwent a weight-loss surgery in February that experts said could help him if he gets exercise and watches what he eats.

Wuerffel was selected to the College Football Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Frazier of Nebraska also to be honored Associated PressNEW YORK The only time Tommie Frazier and Danny Wuerffel shared the field during their brilliant college careers, Fraziers Nebraska team trampled Wuerffel and Florida in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl to win the national championship. Wuerffel and the Gators bounced back from that record-breaking 62-24 smackdown to take the title the next season. The former quarterbacks will cross paths again in December, when they are inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Wuerffel and Frazier, along with Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne, highlighted the latest Hall of Fame class of 12 players and two coaches announced by the National Football Foundation on Tuesday. The rest of the players to be inducted in Manhattan are: Miami Heisman winner Vinny Testaverde, whose selection was announced Monday; Ted Brown of North Carolina State; Tedy Bruschi of Arizona; Jerry Gray of Texas; Steve Meilinger of Kentucky; Orlando Pace of Ohio State; Rod Shoate of Oklahoma; Percy Snow of Michigan State; and Don Trull of Baylor. The new Hall of Fame coaches are Wayne Hardin, who led Navy and Temple, and Bill McCartney of Colorado. Florida and Nebraska fans have been eagerly awaiting the inductions of their beloved All-Americans for years. Wuerffel won the Heisman in 1996, when he led the Gators to the national championship, throwing for 3,625 yards and 39 touchdowns in coach Steve Spurriers Fun-n-Gun offense. Im thankful for what college football has meant in my life ... and how it allowed me to help other people, said Wuerffel, who appeared at a news conference with Bruschi at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange in Times Square. Wuerffel finished his college career as one of the most prolific passers in major college football history with 10,875 yards and 114 touchdown passes. After a short NFL career, he retired to dedicate himself to ministry work in New Orleans, where he played from 1997-99 with the Saints. Frazier was a four-year starter at Nebraska, running coach Tom Osbornes option attack, and helped the Huskers to national titles in 1994 and His famous tackling-breaking 75-yard touchdown run put an exclamation point on Nebraskas 62-24 victory over Wuerffel and Florida in that Fiesta Bowl. Ive seen that run a lot of times, Wuerffel said. That loss helped propel the Gators into next season, Wuerffel said. I think most people would say the 1995 team was more talented, he said. I think (the loss to Nebraska) helped that team mature. Frazier finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1995 as a senior and finished his career with 5,476 total yards of offense and 79 total touchdowns. Floridas Wuerffel selected for college HOF Citrus season comes to a close Blue Jays earn another come-from-behind victory Canes drop 9-3 decision at Springstead S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentSPRING HILL The Citrus defense unraveled in the fifth inning as Springstead sent 15 batters to the plate and tallied all nine of its runs en route to advancing to its first-ever regional baseball final with a 9-3 triumph on Tuesday. The Eagles victory marked their fourth of the season over the Hurricanes (14-15 overall) and earned them a home game versus todays regional semifinal winner between Edgewater and undefeated Melbourne. Citrus led 1-0 before back-toback infield errors kicked off the bottom of the fifth and helped jumpstart Springsteads onslaught. Thirteen batters, five hits, four walks and one error later, the Eagles (19-8) had all but clinched the home playoff tilt with a 9-1 advantage. It was a great ballgame until all that happened, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said. Thats our season in a nutshell. Unfortunately, defense has been our nemesis all year. Hopefully, we can become a team that can pitch out of that. Springstead definitely took advantage of the first few errors and then got some pretty good breaks. Senior pitcher Ryan Nicholl was backed by an error-free Springstead defense and the nine-run inning as he needed just one strikeout while surrendering eight hits, two walks and three earned runs for a complete-game win. Canes junior starter Ben Torontos Happ hit in head by line drive Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive and taken off the field on a stretcher during Torontos 6-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. In a frightening scene at Tropicana Field, Desmond Jennings second-inning liner caromed squarely off the left side of Happs head with a loud thwack! that could be heard up in the press box. The ball went all the way into the bullpen in foul territory halfway down the right-field line. Happ dropped face down at the front of the mound, holding his head with his glove. The pitcher was taken to a hospital for tests but the Blue Jays had no update on his condition immediately after the game. Jennings ended up on third base with a two-run triple. Team trainers, paramedics and medical officials rushed to Happs aid. The Blue Jays grabbed a 6-4 lead in the ninth on Maicer Itzuris solo homer and an RBI double by Melky Cabrera off Joel Peralta (0-2). Toronto, which trailed by three early on, tied it at 4 in the eighth on Jose Bautistas RBI double. Steve Delabar (3-1) threw two scoreless innings before Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his ninth save. The Blue Jays have won three in a row for the first time this season. Tampa Bay starter Roberto Hernandez went six innings, allowing one run and five hits. He had seven strikeouts and one walk.

FHSAA regional semifinal BASEBALL St. John Lutheran avenges district final loss to Seven Rivers Christian STEPHEN E. LASKO /For the Chronicle Seven Rivers Christian Schools Adam Gage beats the throw to second base as St. John shortstop Ryan Oltz attempts to field the ball Tuesday during a Class 2A regional semifinal baseball game at Dazzy Vance Field in Homosassa. The Warriors saw their season come to an end in a 5-0 loss to the visiting Saints. C.J. RISAK CorrespondentHOMOSASSA For most of the baseball season, everything has gone right for Seven Rivers Christian. But in Tuesdays Class 2A regional semifinal against district nemesis Ocala St. John Lutheran, everything went awry. The Saints scored single runs in each of the first three innings, more than enough support behind the stellar pitching of freshman Josh Harper, who stymied Seven Rivers on five hits in guiding St. John to a 5-0 victory. We made a few mistakes and we didnt score any runs, said Warriors coach Jim Ervin after the disappointing loss. St. John, now 11-15, advances to play Deltona Trinity Christian Friday. Seven Rivers ends its season at 17-3. We accomplished a lot as a baseball team this year, Ervin said. Yes, were disappointed but we did a lot. All I want to say about tonights game is, yes, mistakes did hurt us but when you dont score any runs, its not going to matter. The Warriors had chances, their best coming in the first inning. St. John got a run in the top half of the opening inning on a one-out single by Ryan Oltz he proved to be the Warriors biggest headache and a walk to Harper. After Anthony DiLavore popped out, Oltz tried to steal third. Pitcher Adam Gages throw to third got past third baseman Parker Pillsbury, allowing Oltz to score. In the bottom of the first, Gage followed Cory Weiands single with a double to left-center field, putting runners at second and third with one out. But Weiand was tossed out at home on Lance Moshers grounder to third and Pillsbury grounded out to end the threat. Matters continued to spiral downward for the Warriors after that. St. John scored in the second without the benefit of a hit when Alex Rodriguezs fly to left field was dropped. A wild pitch moved him to second, a ground out got him to third and another wild pitch scored him to make it 2-0. Oltz pushed the advantage to 3-0 in the third, sending a one-out pitch from Gage over the left-center field fence for a home run. The Saints got their fourth run thanks to Oltz in the fifth when he reached base on a one-out infield single off of Weiand, who relieved Gage. Oltz moved to second on a ground out and a balk called against Weiand put him at third. A walk to DiLavore put runners at the corners, and Oltz scored on a failed pickoff attempt on DiLavore. A single followed by an error on a grounder by Oltz produced the Saints final run in the seventh. I think our focus was there tonight, said St. John coach Russ Harper. I think Josh did a great job with his location, with his focus on his pitches. And we had an approach at the plate, and we executed it. We tried to be aggressive on the base paths tonight.

There are several communities with two tennis courts but no team. Maybe you think you need more courts to join a league, but two is all you need. All local leagues, except for the Thursday morning league, only use two courts. Even the Thursday league could be played on two, by playing at two different times, but that is not really handy. In the other leagues, you only need four players to field a team, so if your community has two courts and you can get four players together, contact one of the chairpersons. There is always a sub list from where you can pull players if one of your own cant play. All the leagues are also looking to expand their sub lists. Call them to let them know if you are interested to join and you have four months to find teammates. For all of you who are not living in a development with courts, you can sign up for that sub list or start a team and play on county or city courts. It would be advisable to see if they would let you reserve the courts for certain times every week. There are all kinds of options to join the local tennis family. The JCT (junior circuit tennis) moved their Tournament of Champions to the summer, date will be announced. Players who would like to enter should email jjeanette3saj @aol.com.

Eric van den Hoogen ON TENNIS Best players baffled by Fla. golf course Associated PressPONTE VEDRA BEACH The Players Championship should consider changing the name of its course to the TPC Mystery. The reason The Players is talked about as the next best thing to a major is because the field is the strongest and deepest in golf. Until the PGA Tour recently created a spot for the Senior Players Championship winner, anyone who teed it up on the TPC Sawgrass had as good a chance as the next guy. The mystery is trying to determine whose game best suits the golf course. The list of winners is impressive, though it doesnt offer concrete clues except that two-thirds are major champions. More curious is how infrequently some of the games best players are even in the mix late Sunday afternoon. Start with Tiger Woods. He was runner-up in 2000 to Hal Be the right club today Sutton. He won in 2001 with that putt on the island-green 17th that was better than most. And thats it. He tied for 10th one year and finished eighth another. Woods has played 15 times in his career, and he was at the height of his powers for more than half those years, when he could fall out of bed and contend. But at Sawgrass, hes had only two serious chances at winning. Theres no course that less people have worked out than this one, Geoff Ogilvy said upon leaving Sawgrass last year. You get one or two chances in your career and you take them. Its a tournament Tiger has played 15 times and hes only contended twice. Theres something odd there. Maybe thats the genius of the golf course. Or maybe thats the flaw of the golf course. But its not just Woods. Phil Mickelson has won 41 times on the PGA Tour, second only to Woods in the last 25 years, with four major championships. He won The Players in 2007, right after switching over to Butch Harmon as his swing coach. And that was the only time he seriously contended at Sawgrass. He tied for third in 2004, but he was five shots behind Adam Scott. Vijay Singh, with 34 wins and three majors, was runnerup to Woods in 2001. In his 19 other appearances, he never finished higher than eighth. Singh won 17 times from 2003 through 2005. He didnt record a top 10 at The Players those years he missed the cut in 2003 and broke 70 twice. Ernie Els, another fourtime major champion in the Hall of Fame, never had a good look at winning The Players. Those are the Big Four of their generation. Thats a collective 72 appearances, two wins and only four chances at winning. Why? No idea, said Padraig Harrington, who has ideas on everything. Im not sure how you would put it down. You pick four players, and its not like all four have the exact same game. Only four chances between them? Associated Press Tiger Woods plays a practice round Tuesday for The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach.

Freshman left-hander Austin Bogart entered in relief for Wright after the Eagles batted around and scored six, but walks and a bunt single by junior Blake Laftery led to three more runs before sophomore Brooks Brasher forced senior third baseman Will Perdomo to fly out to center for the final out of the decisive frame. Laterty (2 for 2) scored twice in the fifth for Springstead, and Nicholl (2 for 3), junior catcher Danny Schonborn (two-run single) and junior left fielder Sean Nascimento each had two RBIs. Thats what weve been doing lately, Springstead head coach Jim Diven said of his teams fifth-inning comeback. We get behind a little bit but they know they can win no matter what part of the game its in. Its difficult to get up for a game like this after beating Citrus three times. Brasher (2 for 4, double) scored Citrus first run on a fourth-inning base hit to right by senior third baseman Tyler Beagan (2 for 3, RBI). Sophomore shortstop Robert Wilkinson drove in Beagan and fellow Cane sophomore Alex Barbee with a hardhit double to right-center in the sixth. Junior catcher Cody Bogart went 2 for 4 for Citrus, and Eagles senior first baseman Brandon Brosher reached base three times with a pair of walks and a first-inning single. Offensively, I liked the way we competed, said Brady Bogart, whose Canes reached the regional finals last season. Were proud of our young kids as well as (seniors) Beagan and Kyle Tobin to be able to play in these postseason games. We feel like weve started something pretty good here and hopefully we can keep this going. Were expecting to play a few extra weeks after every season. Certainly their strategy on the bases paid dividends. The Saints stole four bases, not including the run scored on the failed pickoff attempt, and also forced a balk. Only two of their runs were earned, two scoring on errors and another on a wild pitch. We werent very disciplined at the plate, Ervin said. And they were very aggressive on the bases, much more than they had been. They have great team speed. St. John had six hits in the game, with Oltz collecting three of them. Also, the Saints committed just one error in the game; Seven Rivers had four. Josh Harper gave up five hits and three walks, but he struck out seven. Weiand had three of the Warriors hits in the game and Gage collected the other two. Beating a team four times in a season is very tough, said Ervin, noting the Warriors had beaten St. John in two of their previous three meetings. And we start four seventh-graders.

John Tavares scored with 9:49 left, and the New York Islanders tied their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night with a wild 6-4 victory. Only the final lead was safe in Game 4. Tavares slammed in his own rebound in front after Brad Boyes fed him following a turnover by Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. It was the Islanders third one-goal advantage in the game and the one that earned them a 2-2 tie in the highly entertaining series that has featured 5-4 and 6-4 finishes at Nassau Coliseum. Tavares was serenaded with cheers of M-V-P from the frantic crowd that is believing an upset is possible. Casey Cizikas shoved in a shot with 1:16 left to add some much-needed insurance. Captain Mark Streit scored twice, and Brian Strait and Kyle Okposo also had goals, and Evgeni Nabokov made 27 saves for the eighth-seeded Islanders. Game 5 is Thursday in Pittsburgh.Senators 3, Canadiens 2, OT OTTAWA Kyle Turris scored 2:32 into overtime, lifting the Ottawa Senators past the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 to grab a 3-1 lead in their playoff series.

Cory Conacher scored with 22.6 seconds to go in regulation to force overtime. Mika Zibanejad had the other goal for the Senators, who got 26 saves from Craig Anderson. P.K. Subban and Alex Galchenyuk scored 62 seconds apart in the second period for Montreal. Price made 30 saves two nights after allowing all six goals in Ottawas 6-1 victory in Game 3. He was injured on Conachers tying goal late in the third period. Game 5 is Thursday night in Montreal in a series that has seen a little bit of everything. Late Monday night Red Wings 3, Ducks 2, OTDETROIT Damien Brunner scored with 4:50 left in overtime, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 3-2 series-evening win over the Anaheim Ducks. Pavel Datsyuk scored a second gametying goal for the Red Wings with 6:33 left in regulation. Brendan Smith made it 1-1 early in the third.

Iman Shumpert added 15 points, including a sensational follow dunk in the first half, and Raymond Felton scored 14 as the Knicks turned a close game into a blowout over the final 15 minutes. Paul George scored 20 points for the Pacers, who had a two-point lead and momentum when coach Frank Vogel called timeout with a little more than 3 minutes left in the third quarter. By the time the Pacers made their next basket, the Knicks had opened a 26-point advantage. Game 3 is Saturday at Indianapolis. Late Monday night Spurs 129, Warriors 127, 2 OTSAN ANTONIO Manu Ginobilis 3-pointer from the wing with 1.2 seconds left in double overtime lifted the San Antonio Spurs to a thrilling 129-127 victory over the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Currys 44 points in Game 1 of their Western Conference second round series. The Spurs trailed by 16 points with 4 minutes left in regulation before going on an 18-2 run to close the fourth quarter and force overtime. They trailed 127-126 with 3.9 seconds left in the second overtime before Ginobili hit his 3-pointer off a cross-court inbounds pass from Kawhi Leonard.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 4, Royals 3 BALTIMORE Matt Wieters drove in three runs, including the tiebreaker in the eighth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on a soggy night at Camden Yards. After blowing a three-run lead, the Orioles went back on top in the eighth. Adam Jones drew a leadoff walk from Tim Collins (1-1) and advanced when Luke Hochevar threw wildly to first base on a pickoff attempt. Wieters then lofted an opposite-field fly to left that landed just inside the foul line for a double. Tommy Hunter (2-1) worked 1 1/3 innings of relief and Jim Johnson got three straight outs for his 12th save. It was the fourth win in five games for the Orioles, who moved within a game of first-place Boston in the AL East.Indians 1, Athletics 0 CLEVELAND Zach McAllister and two relievers combined on a shutout and the Cleveland Indians scored an unearned run in the fifth inning for their eighth win in nine games, 1-0 over the Oakland Athletics.

The win ends a six-game skid for the Astros. The road woes continued for the Angels, who have dropped eight of their past 10 away from Anaheim. Jose Altuve also homered for Houston, and the Astros took advantage of three errors by catcher Hank Conger to score five unearned runs. Houston trailed by two entering the third inning before Carters teamleading seventh homer capped a five-run inning and gave the Astros a 6-3 lead.

Mesoraco connected for his first career pinch-hit homer off Craig Kimbrel (0-1), who blew a save for the second time in his last three appearances. Kimbrel went to a full count on Mesoraco before the catcher homered into the first row in center. Four pitches later, Choo hit his second homer of the game, giving him a team-leading seven. It was his second career game-ending homer. Jonathan Broxton (1-1) retired three batters in the ninth for Cincinnatis fourth win in five games. Cubs 2, Cardinals 1CHICAGO Travis Wood pitched impressively into the seventh inning to outduel Lance Lynn, Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run homer and the Chicago Cubs snapped the St. Louis Cardinals six-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory. The Cardinals streak was their longest since an eight-game run July 11-21, 2010. Wood (2-3) allowed one run and five hits while striking out eight in 6 2/3 innings for his first win since April 27 at Miami. Lynn (5-1) was trying to become the National Leagues first pitcher to win six games. INTERLEAGUE Mets 1, White Sox 0, 10 inn. NEW YORK Matt Harvey pitched one-hit ball for nine innings in a nearly perfect performance and the New York Mets permitted just one baserunner all game in beating the Chicago White Sox 1-0 in the 10th. Harvey allowed only an infield single by Alex Rios with two outs in the seventh he was safe, barely. The right-hander struck out a career-high 12 and was pulled when the game went to extra innings. Pinch-hitter Mike Baxter lined an RBI single with one out in the 10th off Nate Jones (0-3). Mets reliever Bobby Parnell (3-0) retired all three batters in the 10th.

Looking For A New Friend?Shop our Pets column in the Classified Section. 794601 Job satisfaction motivates educators I t is hard to believe another school year is coming to a close. A friend of mine, who is very successful in the business world, asked me recently Why do you do what you do? I thought for a moment well maybe a couple of moments and told her its all about satisfaction. I said to her, Think back to when you were a student in school I am sure you have special memories of a teacher who had a significant impact on your life. Well, we as teachers have special memories, too. We remember the joy in students eyes when they passed an industry certification exam. We remember the excitement when a student won a state or national competition. We remember when a student who was all thumbs completed their first programmable logic controller assignment. We remember the pride a student displayed when they got a job that paid big money. E DUCATION Section C WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Denise Willis GUEST COLUMN See WILLIS / Page C2 ACT exam going digital Tests could begin as early as 2015 Associated PressWASHINGTON Goodbye, No. 2 pencils. Hello, iPads. Starting as early as spring 2015, the ACT college admissions exam will go digital, reflecting students tech savvy and the demand for quicker results. The tests will still have the familiar multiple-choice options for college hopefuls, but they will also expand to include interactive portions, such as a simulated science lab for students to conduct experiments or space for students to explain concepts in their own words. The days of paper-andpencil admission testing are changing, Jon Erickson, president of ACTs education division, said during an interview ahead of the companys announcement this week that it would shift to iPads, laptops and desktop computers and away from the familiar optical scan bubble sheets. Were attempting to meet students where they are today, he said. Several states already use computers for statewide tests, and Iowa-based ACT works with 22 of them, from Alaska to Florida. But testing in Kentucky was suspended last week after ACT officials discovered glitches. Problems with other vendors forced Indiana, Minnesota and Oklahoma to delay their highstakes testing. In part, that is why ACT is not rushing to start online offerings See ACT / Page C2 Tiny private school stands out for its approach D OUG E RICKSON Wisconsin State JournalWESTFIELD, Wis. As the Rev. Richard Sunderlage entered the elementary classroom at Resurrection Lutheran School one recent morning, all five students shot up out of their desks. Students at the school are required to stand whenever an adult enters the room. They also must address their elders as maam or sir. Such rules set the school apart, but so do many other things. It is tiny just 12 students in first grade through high school and it is not affiliated with a church. Even rarer, it charges no tuition or fees. We dont want there to be any barriers, said Sunderlage, the schools driving force. Now in its third year, the school appears to be the only no-tuition, no-fees, first-through-12th-grade private school in the state, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. Matt Kussow, executive director of the Wisconsin Council of Religious & Independent Schools, said he is not aware of any others. Good Shepherd Lutheran School in Wisconsin Rapids also is Access and comfort level of students will continue to be on the top of our mind. Jon Erickson president of ACTs education division. Tuition free for the 12 pupils See SCHOOL / Page A4 Resurrection Lutheran School founder Rev. Richard Sunderlage talks with third-grader Brianna Wolfe, left, and fifth-grader Sydney Minigh during a class in Westfield, Wis. Associated Press hether its a grand gift or a simple thank-you note, this is the week to show teachers your appreciation. May 6 to 10 is Teacher Appreciation Week in Florida, and schools throughout the county are hosting special activities to make teachers feel special. Citrus County students have taken the time to thank the men and women who devote themselves to educating children across the globe. Below are letters written by local students who wanted to express their gratitude for their past and present influential educators. Eryn Worthington, staff writer Mrs. Paprzycki is most definitely the best teacher in the world! Im lucky to have her for the second and third grade. She is patient and she rewards us for doing well. She has a way of keeping us focused and not scolding. She knows how to challenge us. Allison Wilson Lecanto Primary School Mr. Shelly is my favorite teacher this year. Mr. Shelly is there for me anytime I need him. I have a feeling that after eighth grade he will be sad to see me go. Coach Shelly is my P.E. teacher and he is good at his job. Lillian Haass Crystal River Middle School I have been greatly influenced by every one of my teachers in the five short years I have attended Seven Rivers Christian School. Its very hard to pick just one teacher, but if I have to, it would be Mrs. Dreyer. She has opened up my world to different types of literature and has taught me to love books. Before Mrs. Dreyer, I used to prefer watching the movie, now Id rather read the book. Beau Russ Seven Rivers Christian School Its a rare and beautiful thing for a child to have a solid, steady adult mentor in her life. Its even more astonishing for that mentor to be loving and selfless, the woman I aspire to be. Ive never had Mrs. Cash as an academic teacher. But as my high school mentor, shes taught me more about the value of love and friendship than any teacher could. Allison Green Seven Rivers Christian School When I think of one teacher who has influenced me the most, I think of my secondgrade teacher,Mrs. Morrison. She has tremendously helped me improve my reading skills.I still have to ask mymom to help me withsome of thedifficult words, but my AR level is much higher than I hoped for.Mrs. Morrison knows little tricks that make it easier for meto read, and she has also showed them to my mom. Mrs. Morrison is the best teacher! Caroline Russ Seven Rivers Christian School My sixth-grade geography/ history teacher, Mr. Verlato, is my favorite teacher. He is always supportive, does his best to come to school sick or healthy, funny and strict, something everyone needs. He does his best so we know what we need to do. He is the best teacher I have. Destiny Clem Crystal River Middle School Mr. (Frank) Laga is my favorite because he has impacted my life majorly. He has taught us that we are not like everyone else, we are average. Also he has taught us that we are AVID kids always trying to make something out of ourselves because nothing will get handed to you. Not even college. Jennifer Gonzalez Crystal River Middle School My most influential teacher is Mrs. Ashley Crowe. She is always helping out with the students. She always has our class under control because they can get a little rambunctious. Sometimes she gives out fun activities so we dont get bored. Mrs. Crowe helps us do our homework. Gayle Shear, Crystal River Middle School June Dreyer Heather Paprzycki Gary Shelly Wendy Cash Frank Laga Ashley Crowe Robert Verlato Donna Morrison To read more of what students said about their teachers, go to www.chronicle online.com.

We remember the speeches students made at the National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony when they talked about how WTI gave them a new start on life. Sure, there are times when I wonder if we will get through the year on what is left in the budget. There are times when I need to stretch every dollar to get the most of what we need. There are times when I contemplate how various legislative decisions will impact my school. But when the day is done or when another school year comes to a close, I can sit back and say proudly to my friend, Yes, I do all this for the satisfaction it brings. Its a special satisfaction that few people outside of education ever experience. I will take a short hiatus from my monthly article to enjoy the summer and work on the 2013-14 student handbook, the course catalog, grants, new curriculum offerings, professional development and the many other projects. My next article will appear in August. I extend a special thank you to the Chronicle and to all my readers for the support you have provided throughout the year. Denise R.

Resurrection Lutheran turns no one away. It has had as many as 33 students and could hold up to 100. The school, about 70 minutes north of Madison in Marquette County, exists to counter public schools, which are not doing a good job of teaching basic skills or controlling violence and bad language, said Sunderlage, a Lutheran minister who makes his living as an acupuncturist. He last served a congregation in 2001, in nearby Adams County. In 2009, Sunderlage, his wife, Marcia, and another couple bought two sections of the old Westfield High School for $75,000 $25,000 down and the rest on a land contract. Resurrection Lutheran School, which runs entirely on donations and fundraising, opened the next year. Since then, Sunderlage said he and his wife have taken out second mortgages on their house and his office building to keep the school afloat. He appeared not at all apprehensive about this. When God told Noah to build an ark, Noah built an ark. He didnt ask how much it would cost, Sunderlage said. God tells you to build a school, you build a school. That is pretty much the business model: Do the work; God will provide. The school runs on a meager annual budget of about $50,000, part of which comes from a companion thrift store in the building. The only paid staff members are two teachers, one full-time, one part-time. Sunderlage serves as a third teacher. His wife runs the school office and thrift store. Neither is paid. It takes a rare man to stand on his faith and do what hes doing, said the Rev. Curtis Leins, assistant presiding pastor of the American Association of Lutheran Churches, Sunderlages church body. Sunderlage was ordained a minister in the Missouri Synod Lutheran denomination, but switched to the muchsmaller AALC a couple of years ago because he said he felt a lack of enthusiasm for the school among Missouri Synod leaders. The school is not accredited but does provide graduates with a high school diploma. The school has submitted paperwork to the state Department of Public Instruction affirming that it offers a sequential curriculum and provides at least 875 instructional hours each school year. State law does not provide DPI with any authority to verify information provided by private schools, said Patrick Gasper, a DPI spokesman. The school has had two graduates so far both last year and they were accepted to Madison Area Technical College, although one decided not to immediately enroll, Sunderlage said. John Eyerly, superintendent of the Westfield School District, said its too early to gauge the schools impact on the district. Its not high-profile yet, he said. I dont know that its in a lot of peoples consciousness. Eyerly said he didnt know enough about the schools curriculum to judge its academic rigor. In addition to basic skills courses such as reading and math, the school teaches four foreign languages and the Bible. for the tests, which help determine, in part, if applicants get into their chosen schools and what scholarships they receive. ACT officials stress that the traditional, 215-question fill-in-the-bubble tests still would be available for those who prefer the paperand-No. 2 pencil option. Access and comfort level of students will continue to be on the top of our mind, Erickson said. We dont want to measure a students computer skills or fears. The most important part will be measuring their learning in school and college readiness standards. The new testing format still two years away and optional even then comes as 45 states and the District of Columbia align their classrooms with Common Core standards, which stress students reasoning skills over rote memorization.
