He risked decades in jail for the disclosures if the U.S. can extradite him from Hong Kong, where he has taken refuge. Edward Snowden, 29, who said he worked as a contractor at the National Security Agency and the CIA, allowed The Guardian and The Washington Postnewspapers to reveal his identity Sunday. Both papers have published a series of top-secret documents outlining two NSA surveillance programs. One gathers hundreds of millions of U.S. phone records while searching for possible links to known terrorist targets abroad, and the second allows the government to tap into nine U.S. Internet companies to gather all Internet usage to detect suspicious behavior that begins overseas. The revelations have reopened the post-Sept. 11 debate about individual privacy concerns versus heightened measures to protect the U.S. against terrorist attacks. The NSA has asked the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the leaks. Government lawyers are now in the initial stages of an investigation into the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by an individual Official claims huge, grave damage Edward Snowden claims surveillance programs open to abuse.

SIDIBE Staff WriterTwo men are in custody after one of the men reportedly turned his 65-pound pit bull loose on deputies twice as they tried to serve a warrant on Sunday. The men also jammed Deputy Andy Cox in a doorway catching his foot under the door as he tried to enter the residence, according to a report by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Charles Winston McCray, 38, and Dwann D. McCray, 31, Crystal River, are facing charges of aggravated assault/battery on a law enforcement officer. Dwann M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerDr. John Gelins association with Citrus Memorial hospital spans four decades, so he knows a thing or two about doing things the old way. Hes used to jotting down prescriptions and medical tests on forms and telling nurses what so-and-so needs. So when the hospital started moving into the 21st century with paperless technology, he wasnt exactly jumping for joy. This is probably the most radical change in my practice since I started here, said Dr. Gelin, who runs the Citrus Primary Care office in Floral City. Citrus Memorial Health System kicked off its $4.7 million Cerner program on May 1. Every patient-related aspect from admissions to discharge is now computerized. The hospital is virtually paperless. CMHS has the potential to earn back $5 million over five years from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid by meeting a number of objectives in the meaningful use of electronic health-record technology. Cerner and a team of CMHS employees, including Dr. Gelin, spent two months at the start of the year testing the programs in various scenarios to work out the bugs. Then information technology director Tyler Whetstone and other IT specialists MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Dr. John Gelin, in his Floral City office, explains how new paperless computer technology is a safer way to practice medicine.

Dunnellon 20170 E. Pennsylvania Ave 352-502-4337 000EPE3 with authorized access, said Nanda Chitre, Justice Department spokeswoman. President Barack Obama said the programs are authorized by Congress and subject to strict supervision of a secret court, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said they do not target U.S. citizens. But Snowden claims the programs are open to abuse. Any analyst at any time can target anyone. Any selector. Anywhere, Snowden said in a video on the Guardianswebsite. I, sitting at my desk, had the authority to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email. Some lawmakers have expressed similar concerns about the wide reach of the surveillance. I expect the government to protect my privacy. It feels like that isnt whats been happening, said Sen. Mark Udall, DColo., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Again, theres a line, but to me, the scale of it and the fact the law was being secretly interpreted has long concerned me, he said Sunday on CNN, adding that at the same time, he abhors leaks. Senate intelligence committee chairman, Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California, contends the surveillance does not infringe on U.S. citizens privacy, and that it helped disrupt a 2009 plot to bomb New York Citys subways and played a role in the case against an American who scouted targets in Mumbai, India, before a deadly terrorist attack there in 2008. Feinstein spoke on ABCs This Week. Clapper decried the revelation of the intelligencegathering programs as reckless and said it has done huge, grave damage. The spokesman for the Director of National Intelligence Shawn Turner said intelligence officials are currently reviewing the damage that has been done by these recent disclosures. The disclosures come as the White House deals with managing fallout from revelations that it secretly seized telephone records of journalists at The Associated Press and Fox News. Snowden said he was a former technical assistant for the CIA and a current employee of defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, which released a statement Sunday confirming he had been a contractor with them in Hawaii for less than three months, and promising to work with investigators. Snowden could face many years in prison for releasing classified information if he is successfully extradited from Hong Kong, according to Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer who represents whistleblowers. Hong Kong, though part of China, is partly autonomous and has a Western-style legal system that is a legacy from the territorys past as a British colony. A U.S.-Hong Kong extradition treaty has worked smoothly in the past. Hong Kong extradited three al-Qaeda suspects to the U.S. in 2003, for example. But the treaty comes with important exceptions. Key provisions allow a request to be rejected if it is deemed to be politically motivated or that the suspect would not receive a fair trial. Beijing may also block an extradition of Chinese nationals from Hong Kong for national security reasons. The government could subject him to a 10 or 20 year penalty for each count, with each document leaked considered a separate charge, Zaid said. Snowden told the Guardian newspaper he believes the government could try to charge him with treason under the Espionage Act, but Zaid said that would require the government to prove he had intent to betray the United States, whereas he publicly made it clear he did this to spur debate. My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them, Snowden told the Guardian The government could also make an argument that the NSA leaks have aided the enemy as military prosecutors have claimed against Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, who faces life in prison under military law if convicted for releasing a trove of classified documents through the Wikileaks website. They could say the revelation of the (NSA) programs could instruct people to change tactics, Zaid said. That could add more potential jail time to the punishment. Snowden told the Posthe was not going to hide. Allowing the U.S. government to intimidate its people with threats of retaliation for revealing wrongdoing is contrary to the public interest, he said in the interview published Sunday. Snowden said he would ask for asylum from any countries that believe in free speech and oppose the victimization of global privacy. Snowden told The Guardian he lacked a high school diploma and served in the U.S. Army until he was discharged because of an injury, and later worked as a security guard with the NSA at a covert facility at the University of Maryland. Associated Press Demonstrators hold signs supporting whistleblower Edward Snowden Monday in New Yorks Union Square Park. LEAK Continued from Page A1 McCray is facing additional charges of resisting an officer with violence and aggravated assault with intent to commit a felony. Charles bond is $5,000 while Dwanns bond is $15,000. When deputies arrived at the residence with a warrant and a K-9 partner, Cox could hear the man later identified as Dwann McCray yelling and screaming curse words at the officers and threatening to get a gun and start shooting, according to the report. Dwann McCray also made threatening gestures, mimicking the use of a firearm, the report stated. Cox, in his report, said he could hear Dwann McCray instruct a pit bull to get em. Dwann McCray then came out the back door and Cox could see the dog. The deputy drew his weapon at low ready as the dog charged, but the dog was intercepted by another deputy and handed to Charles McCray, who returned it to the house. Now outside, Dwann McCray reportedly continued his yelling and screaming and re-released the dog to go get em, the arrest report states. Deputy Cox re-drew his firearm and pointed it at the dog, which promptly stopped and headed back inside the house. Cox chased after Dwann McCray, who was trying to follow the dog back into the house. Cox said Dwann McCray slammed the door on him, and both McCrays attempted to block his entry. The deputys foot was pinned in the door jam until he was able to break free, damaging his boot in the process, the report stated. The report stated both men then exited the house and were arrested.

Around the STATE Citrus County WalkerFest concert to be moved indoors Organizers of the WalkerFest concert featuring Pat Benatar have moved the June 21 concert location from the Citrus County Speedway to the Citrus County Fairgrounds livestock pavilion in Inverness. The decision to move the concert location was to protect fans from chance of rain. The livestock pavilion is covered. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity, United Way of Citrus County and the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Florida Highway Patrol said 22-year-old Steven Lee Lynch was walking in the road early Sunday morning when he was hit by the car driven by 23-yearold Elizabeth Hart. According to troopers, the deputy didnt see Lynch until the last minute. The Ocala Star-Banner reported the stretch of the two-lane Baseline Road near Belleview is dark and unlighted. The speed limit is 55 mph. Lynch was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition to the intensive care unit. Ocala Police find baby in car, mom inside barPolice said a 22-year-old woman left her month-old baby in a car while she went inside an Ocala bar. An anonymous 911 caller alerted authorities after 1 a.m. Monday. Ocala police officers found the sweating baby inside the 2001 Mercury Sable. The baby was in a car seat with the front window open. The Ocala Star-Banner reported Britney Jean Rohdy was inside the Suite 306 Bar and Lounge. Rohdy told the officer she came to the bar to look for someone and had been inside less than 10 minutes. But the bar owner told police she had been there since at least 12:30 a.m. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Corrections A headline on Page A1 of Mondays edition, BOCC to adopt $60 fee for fire service, was incorrect.

P AT F AHERTY Staff writer LECANTO With Citrus Countys bleak budget outlook, the Agricultural Alliance is continuing efforts to keep a positive spotlight on the extension service. The alliance, which maintains an agriculture education and advocacy role, has often addressed extension issues, especially short staffing and an apparent lack of community awareness of the services available. The service is a federal, state and local partnership that receives funding from the state and the county. Maintaining the service and supporting 4-H are alliance priorities. Monday, Joan Bradshaw, director of Citrus County Extension, provided an on update the current 4-H director vacancy. She said the University of Florida will pick up the benefits and pay 10 percent of the salary and the county will pay 90 percent. The position, which is considered UF faculty, will be posted and open for three weeks. This is summer and theres lots going on in 4-H, she said. Bradshaw also reported on plans for the third annual Awesome Ag Day, tentatively set for late July at Lecanto High School. The purpose of the event is to educate children from Citrus YMCA on how food goes from a farm to their dinner table. It will involve 4-H, FFA and related agencies and volunteers. Bradshaw said the extension service is hosting a state review team this week. They will be here three days going over each program looking for strengths and what we need to work on, she said. The dilemma we are in here as a community is how to support and pay for extension, chairman Dale McClellan said, citing the unfilled horticultural agent position. We need to understand how serious this is ... it concerns me we dont have a community thats more vocal about it. Jenette Collins, Citrus County Land Development director, provided an update on the County Road 491 corridor project. It could be a catalyst for development in that area, she said. Regarding the countys location between the Tampa area counties and rural counties to the north, vice chairman Larry Rooks noted the potential for an operation to process biosolids for fertilizer. A plant here or near here would be good for agriculture, he said. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. Ag Alliance: Dont overlook extension service Group is concerned for programs future as county tightens budget belt N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Thank you for your patience; were almost done. Thats the word from the city of Inverness regarding the North Apopka road construction project between Dampier Street and the Withlacoochee State Trail. The $375,000 project, known as Bicycle Boulevard, is designed to give bicyclists a safe connection from the trail to the downtown area. According to Katie Cottrell, the citys public works director, theyve had a few complaints about the road work, such as questioning why couldnt they do one side of the road at a time. As Cottrell explained, its not feasible to do that on such a small road. Its a heavily traveled road, so weve asked people to go very slowly, she said. Most recently, construction crews have been sweeping and inspecting the surface for potholes. In addition to the road resurfacing, the project also includes embedded lanes for bicycle traffic, the addition of a traffic calming median with trees and landscaping, a crosswalk at the state trail and amber lights alerting motorists when someone is at the trail waiting to cross Apopka. Also, the parking area and a walkway at Liberty Park are being redone, changing it from crushed shell and gravel to paved surfaces. Despite the recent rain, the project is on schedule and on budget. Our goal is to have it fully usable and substantially complete by our July 3 patriotic event, Cottrell said, adding that a ribbon-cutting ceremony will most likely be the following week. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Motorists slowly make their way along Inverness North Apopka Avenue as construction along the busy road keeps the pace of travel slow. City of Inverness seeks patience as it wraps up work on North Apopka Theyre getting there Associated PressSANFORD On the first day of his trial Monday, George Zimmerman got a look at some of the people who might decide whether he committed second-degree murder when he fatally shot 17year-old Trayvon Martin. The first group of 100 potential jurors filled out questionnaires about themselves and their ability to serve on the jury as prosecutors and defense attorneys sought to find six objective members and four alternates. In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases, when the death penalty is being considered. By the time the all-day session concluded, attorneys had interviewed four potential jurors, asking them what they had heard about the case on television, in newspapers and on the Internet. A woman in her 50s who watches TV game shows said she believed she could be unbiased even though she knew some basic facts of the case. Another woman in her late 30s who recently moved from Chicago and works in a nursing home, said she only had a passing familiarity with the case mainly images she saw of people wearing T-shirts with Martins face on them. I really dont know anything about the case, said the woman, known as Juror B29. But I believe at the end of the day, you have to listen to both sides. Juror B30, a 65-year-old man with hearing loss, said he recalled Martins parents going public about their concerns over the lack of an immediate arrest last year and more recently testimony over whether voice-recognition experts should be allowed to testify at trial. Zimmerman was present in the jury holding room as his defense attorneys and prosecutors introduced themselves to the potential jurors. The more opportunities for the potential jurors to interact with the defendant, even if the defendant is just sitting there, the better, said Orlando defense attorney David Hill, who has no connection to the case. Jurors have to see him as a human being in the flesh, not a theoretical person accused of a crime. Any possible way they can connect with him is good from the defense point of view. Jury selection begins for trial George Zimmerman charged in killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin Associated PressTALLAHASSEE After years of fierce lobbying, behind-thescenes battles and even protests, Florida on Monday officially designated two of its public universities as preeminent research universities. The Florida Board of Governors, acting on a new state law, gave the designation to two of the states best-known and established schools: the University of Florida and Florida State University. The decision which happened quickly during a Monday conference call not only brings with it prestige but also extra money. State legislators set aside millions for both schools as a reward for the new designation. The idea is that the extra money will help push both UF and FSU to more success. UF wants to be one of the nations top 10 public universities, while FSU would like to elevate its status as well. FSU, which has its main campus in Tallahassee, wants to someday join UF as the only other state university that is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. UF, FSU designated top research universities George Zimmerman Clarification A story on Page 1A of Sundays Chronicle Countys budget cant strip down staffs pay, requires clarification. The $167,000 savings that would result in cutting higher-paid county staff salaries did not include the countys contribution to payroll deductions.

Birthday Some wonderful goals can be met in the coming months, as long as you dont get bogged down by ineffective alliances. Avoid this by, first and foremost, always striving to be your own person. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Watch out for a hotshot salesperson with a dazzling pitch, who will attempt to palm off what is clearly inferior merchandise. Dont let your guard down for one minute. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Much give-and-take might be required between you and your one-and-only. A lack of consideration on your part would do great harm, with wounded feelings resulting. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If a friend who has been kind to you many times in the past is now in need of your support, dont disappear. Its time to step up. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont put needless strain on a good friendship by making too many unreasonable demands. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You may operate with great effectiveness in a competitive development, but your accomplishments will mean little if you use tactics that are dishonest or underhanded. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Surprisingly, someone who always endorses your ideas might be diametrically opposed to your way of thinking. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If this should turn out to be a financially trying day, dont further aggravate the situation by yielding to extravagant inclinations. Live within your means. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Normally, you strive to be considerate with everyone you encounter. However, for some reason today, you might put your interests above all others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its not like you to fail to display proper gratitude to those who do you special favors, yet that might be the case today. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Owing to an inability to accurately judge anothers character, you could form a relationship with someone who has a questionable reputation. Aries (March 21-April 19) To acquire something you want, you might deliberately step on someones toes. Taurus (April 20-May 20) If you find that companions are not as infatuated with your plans as you are, be prepared to either compromise or go your way alone. Todays HOROSCOPES Today is Tuesday, June 11, the 162nd day of 2013. There are 203 days left in the year. Todays Highlights in History: On June 11, 1963, in one of the most shocking images of the Vietnam War era, a Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc, set himself afire on a Saigon street to protest the government of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem. (The scene was captured in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken by Malcolm Browne of The Associated Press.) On this date: In 1770, Captain James Cook, commander of the British ship Endeavour, discovered the Great Barrier Reef off Australia by running onto it. In 1776, the Continental Congress formed a committee to draft a Declaration of Independence calling for freedom from Britain. In 1962, three prisoners at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay staged an escape, leaving the island on a makeshift raft; they were never found or heard from again. Ten years ago: A suicide bomber killed 16 victims in a Jerusalem bus blast; two Israeli rocket strikes against Hamas fugitives killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza City. Five years ago: President George W. Bush, during a visit to Germany, raised the possibility of a military strike to thwart Tehrans presumed nuclear weapons ambitions. One year ago: Testimony began in the trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, accusing of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. (Sandusky was later convicted and sentenced to at least 30 years in prison.) Todays Birthdays: U.S. Rep. Charles Rangell, D-N.Y., is 83. Actor Gene Wilder is 80. Actress Adrienne Barbeau is 68. Rock musician Frank Beard (ZZ Top) is 64. Thought for Today: A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. David Brinkley (1920-2003).

After several years of studying imperiled butterflies, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service believes the Zestos (Epargyreus zestos oberon) and rockland grass (Hesperia meskei pinocayo) skippers are likely extinct. The Zestos skipper was last observed at the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden on Stock Island in 2004. That butterfly had not been observed on mainland Florida for decades. The rockland grass skipper was last observed at Everglades National Park in 2000, wildlife officials said in a statement. The Zestos skipper wasnt considered imperiled globally because it is found throughout the Bahamas and eastern Antilles. It was only recently discovered that the Zestos skipper in Florida was a distinct subspecies, but it was gone before conservationists could protect it. The rockland grass skipper was also believed extinct in the 1980s until it was briefly rediscovered on Big Pine Key in 1999. But it disappeared again before it could be saved, according to wildlife officials. Butterfly scientists and activists have done extensive surveys in recent years in public conservation lands throughout South Florida and the Keys to determine the status of imperiled butterflies. Several wildlife groups have united to monitor the federally endangered Schaus swallowtail and Miami blue butterflies in the Florida Keys. The Miami blue butterfly was believed extinct after Hurricane Andrew, until a small population was discovered seven years later in a Keys state park. That population has since disappeared, despite a University of Florida breeding program that released 30,000 of the butterflies in the Upper Keys to try to expand its range. Now Miami blues are found only on a remote island within the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuge. Officials attribute declining butterfly populations to diminishing habitats, poaching, insecticides and threats from predators such as fire ants. Wildlife officials say two species extinct led employees through months of training that continues today. Still, physicians, particularly those with years of experience, are complaining the training is too time consuming and the technology too slow. At a recent Citrus Memorial Health Foundation meeting, one physician said some patients are being discharged a day or two later than needed because of new system. Whetstone said the system significantly improves patient care because it cuts down on the potential for errors. He acknowledged some doctors are impatient. Its hard for a lot of these guys to accept the change, Whetstone said. It just takes time. Dr. Gelin, while admitting being intimidated by the new system, has embraced it. Among other things, the Cerner system drastically cuts down on the potential for communication errors between physicians and pharmacists or diagnostic testing. Rather than prescriptions or orders scribbled on a notepad, they are entered by code in the computer. The system will flag drug interactions that could cause problems for the patient. Dr. Gelin has created a template for numerous diagnoses so that he can quickly check off the tests and medications necessary for patients. If you can eliminate medical errors, thats one major advantage, he said. Its cleaner. I dont have to read Dr. Xs writing and he doesnt have to read mine. This is the safe way to practice medicine.

They are concerned that the mine will so change the character of the area as to permanently and irrevocably alter the character of the cemetery as a place for peaceful contemplation and family gatherings. Mining zoning cases are heard by a special master instead of the Planning and Development Commission. Special master Katherine R. English recommended the county commission approve the mining request. Brown Dumas III, a trustee with Red Level Cemetery, told the special master last year the trustees are concerned about overall noise, vibration from trucks, drag lines and blasting affecting the headstones that are 150 years old and cant be fixed. One major concern was a rock wall that was very old and maintained for historical benefit. Dumas said he did not like the increased traffic and the effect on wildlife. In addition, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mills, who own adjacent property, expressed concern at the special masters hearing for potential offsite flooding of adjacent wetlands in the southeast corner of the property. Another adjacent resident, Paula Locklear, told English that her family land was homesteaded in 1883. Locklear was concerned with changes surrounding her property as her family has enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. She was concerned that mining haul trucks would use a road only 600 feet from her residence and would raise dust and noise. The applicant, Clark A. Stillwell for Nature Coast Development LLC and Tallahassee Road LLC, is proposing a master mining plan on about 149 acres to establish a limerock mine. The total area proposed to be mined is about 24 acres on the western portion of the site. The property has a future land use designation for extractive uses, which was imposed on it as part of the countys 1989 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. English heard the application April 25, 2012. On May 9, 2013, she recommended the Citrus County Board of County (BOCC) approve the application for a planned development overlay subject to 14 conditions. The application must go through the process because the new mine proposes impact to wetlands and surface waters that must be approved by the BOCC as a planned unit development and the new mine within an extractive district proposes an office building having less than the required setback from the abutting industrial property at the site of the entrance. Board members will be asked to allow the development. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressHONG KONG By holing up in Hong Kong, the American defense contractor who says he leaked information on classified U.S. surveillance programs has found an unlikely refuge from extradition. It might be temporary, however. Hong Kongs protection of Edward Snowden is not a given. As a former British colony, the territory has a well-established, Westernstyle legal system. It is home to a boisterous media and outspoken public that ardently defend their rights to expression. And though a semi-autonomous part of China, it ultimately answers to Beijing, which is often at odds with Washington. That combination of sturdy legal institutions and strong political backing made Hong Kong an attractive place to take shelter, said Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, whose reports last week that exposed widespread U.S. government programs to collect telephone and Internet records were based on information from Snowden. There were no good options for him, so it just became a question of weight of all the various factors, Greenwald said in Hong Kong on Monday. There were probably other places that were more democratic but that would be more likely to hand him over to the United States because they wouldnt want to resist the pressure that the United States would undoubtedly apply to get him. However, the U.S. is one of the largest investors in Hong Kong, a major business center for East Asia. The U.S. and Hong Kong also have an extradition treaty and routinely cooperate on requests to transfer criminals; in one high-profile case, Hong Kong extradited three alQaeda suspects to the U.S. in 2003. While Beijing at times stands up to Washington, it may not want to for Snowden. Beijing has often criticized foreign governments for harboring critics of its Communist government. China also is seeking U.S. cooperation on retrieving corrupt Chinese officials who have fled to America, often with sizeable assets. Cyberhacking and cyberespionage have emerged as the newest friction in relations that Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping pledged over the weekend to improve. I cant imagine that after all this effort, theyre going to let this one thing make a mess of it, said David Zweig, an expert on Chinese politics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Still, the extradition treaty gives Hong Kong ways to say no. The U.S. and Hong Kong concluded the treaty with Beijings blessing on the eve of the territorys hand back from Britain to China in 1997. Provisions allow one side to refuse a request if its deemed to be politically motivated or if the suspect is unlikely to receive a fair trial. Beijing may also have a veto. The treaty allows Beijing to refuse to extradite a Chinese national for reasons of national security. A study by the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1997 suggests Beijing may have wider discretion to prohibit any extradition, not just of Chinese nationals, on national security grounds.

NSA leaker could be latest to seek help in Iceland Associated PressREYKJAVIK, Iceland From seafaring Vikings to digital dissenters, Iceland has always attracted outsiders. This North Atlantic island nation has welcomed eccentric chess master Bobby Fischer, WikiLeaks secretspiller Julian Assange and the online freedom advocates of the Pirate Party. Could its next guest be Edward Snowden, the American intelligence contractor who leaked secrets from the National Security Agency? In an interview published Sunday outing himself as the source behind stories about the U.S. spy agencys online surveillance programs, Snowden floated the idea of heading to Reykjavik. He told The Guardian newspaper he was inclined to seek asylum in a country that shared his values and the nation that most encompasses this is Iceland. That has left many in this tiny seafaring nation, population 320,000, flattered, if bemused. I think it would be great for (Snowden) to come to Iceland, Bjorn Sigurdarson, an executive at the University of Iceland, said Monday. The actions by the U.S. government are disturbing and if we could protect him here, we should. But its a little funny how our tiny country is in the news about this. Iceland may be a global minnow, but it has a tradition of providing a haven for the outspoken and the outcast. Descendants of Viking settlers in a country that for centuries made its living from the sea, Icelanders have never lacked confidence. The country has produced global figures from genre-bending musicians such as Bjork to the credit-fueled capitalists who snapped up businesses around the world before Icelands economy collapsed in 2008. Facing a harsh environment prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and deep freezes has forged a hardy nation unafraid to go its own way and stand up to bigger countries. Iceland has faced off against Britain over fishing rights in the Cod Wars of the 1970s and continues to hunt whales in the face of wide international opposition. In 2005, the chess-loving country risked the anger of the United States by offering citizenship to Fischer, who was wanted in the U.S. on charges of breaking international sanctions against the former Yugoslavia by playing a chess match there in 1992. Fischer lived in Iceland until his death in 2008. More recently, Iceland stood up to strong pressure from the British and Dutch governments during the 2008 financial crisis, when it refused to reimburse those countries citizens who lost money in an Icelandic savings bank that went bankrupt. The country also was an early base for the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. Icelands Pirate Party, founded on a program of direct democracy, digital innovation and media freedom, won three of the 63 seats in Icelands parliament, the Althingi, in Aprils national election. Its members are pushing Icelandic authorities to extend a hand to Snowden, who revealed his identity Sunday from a hotel in Hong Kong. We have called in our lawyers and are ready to assist him if he comes to Iceland, said Smari McCarthy, a Pirate Party member and founder of the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, a group campaigning to give Iceland even stronger freedom of speech protections. He said the group was planning to meet with the interior minister to discuss a possible asylum request for Snowden. Icelandic Interior Ministry spokesman Johannes Tomasson, however, said the government has not had contact with the 29-year-old American. We have not received any application, and so his idea of maybe seeking asylum here is for us just speculation, he said. To apply for asylum, Snowden must be on Icelandic soil. His current whereabouts are unknown. Edward Snowden intelligence contractor. Associated Press Wild lupins and dandelions bloom May 31, 2008, in front of the Perlan, on skjuhld Hill, in Reykjavik, Iceland. In an interview outing himself as the source behind stories of the National Security Agencys online surveillance programs, Edward Snowden floated the idea of heading to Reykjavik. Hong Kong is unlikely refuge for US secrets leaker Associated Press Glenn Greenwald, left, a reporter of The Guardian walks out from his hotel room in Hong Kong on Monday. Greenwald reported a 29-year-old contractor who claims to have worked at the National Security Agency and the CIA allowed himself to be revealed Sunday as the source of disclosures about the U.S. governments secret surveillance programs, risking prosecution by the U.S. government.

T UESDAY, J UNE 11, 2013 A7 Apple revamps look of iPhone, iPad softwareSAN FRANCISCO Apple is throwing out most of the real-world graphical cues from its iPhone and iPad software, like the casinogreen felt of its Game Center app, in what it calls the biggest update since the iPhones launch in 2007. The new operating system, called iOS 7, strives for a clean, simple, translucent look. Apple is redesigning all its applications and icons to conform to the new look, driven by long-time hardware design chief Jony Ive. Apple demonstrated the new software at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday. The new design direction was widely expected and will show up on iPhones, iPad and iPod Touches this fall, the company said. Obama nominates Furman as top economic adviser WASHINGTON President Barack Obama has nominated Jason Furman, a veteran White House economic official, as chairman of the presidents Council of Economic Advisers. Obama called Furman, 42, one of the most brilliant economic minds of his generation. He said Furman never forgets hes fighting for the middle class and those who aspire to join it. If confirmed by the Senate, Furman would replace Alan Krueger, who is returning to his former post as a professor at Princeton University.American, US Airways name post-merger leadershipDALLAS The new American Airlines will have more top executives from smaller but more successful US Airways than from the current American. Five US Airways executives will follow their current CEO, Doug Parker, when he takes control after the airlines complete their proposed merger. Three executives from American parent AMR Corp. were named to the new companys leadership team. AMR and US Airways Group Inc. hope to complete their proposed merger this summer. The deal still needs approval by U.S. antitrust regulators and AMRs bankruptcy creditors.McDonalds says cheap eats helped lift sales NEW YORK Cheap eats and new menu items helped McDonalds boost a key sales figure in May, bouncing back from a decline the previous month. The worlds biggest hamburger chain said Monday that global sales rose 2.6 percent at restaurants open at least a year, helped by an extra Friday in the month. In the U.S., the figure rose 2.4 percent, as the Dollar Menu and its new chicken wraps and egg white breakfast sandwiches lifted results. In Europe, the figure rose 2 percent, as declines in Germany and France were offset by strong results in the United Kingdom and Russia. Microsoft hypes next-gen Xbox One games at E3 LOS ANGELES Microsoft has its head in the cloud with Xbox One. The company focused on how cloud computing will make games for its next-generation Xbox One console more immersive during its Monday presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the gaming industrys annual trade show. Microsoft announced last week that the successor to the Xbox 360 must be connected to the Internet every 24 hours to operate, and the system would ideally always be online. The upcoming consoles cloud computing capabilities were demonstrated by fleshing out dense environments in third-person openworld games like the zombie-fighting sequel Dead Rising 3 and cartoony shooter Sunset Overdrive. The racing simulator Forza MotorSport 5 introduced a feature called drivatar, which mimics players driving styles and allows their drivatars to play for them offline.Travelers to buy Canadian insurer for about $1.1 billionNEW YORK Property and casualty insurer The Travelers Cos. will spend about $1.1 billion in cash to buy The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Co. and strengthen its reach north of the U.S. border. The New York-based insurer said Monday The Dominions distribution network and customer base will help Travelers bolster its commercial lines business and presence in Canada. Travelers will use debt and possibly preferred stock to help pay for the deal. It expects that the acquisition will have no significant impact on this years earnings per share and will provide a slight boost to 2014.

But investors just yawned. Stocks budged higher when trading opened, shortly after the S&P agency raised its outlook for the U.S. governments debt rating and credited the strengths of the economy. But the gains proved both modest and fickle, and the market spent most of the day flitting between small gains and losses. At days end, the Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 were lower, but just barely. The Nasdaq composite was slightly higher. It was a marked change from Friday, when the Dow jumped 207 points after a jobs report that investors viewed as positive. Trading volume was light, and there were no major economic reports or company announcements. The 10 industry sectors in the S&P were split down the middle, with half rising and half falling, but none moved dramatically. The best performer, telecommunications, was up 0.8 percent. The worst, consumer discretionary, was down 0.3 percent. Booz Allen Hamilton slid after a company employee said he had leaked information about secret government surveillance programs. The consulting companys stock dropped 46 cents, or 2.6 percent, to $17.54. The S&Ps statement harkened back to August 2011, when the agency slashed its rating of the U.S. governments debt because Congress was in a heated battle over whether to raise government spending limits. The downgrade, an embarrassment to the United States, also sent the stock market into a tailspin. The Dow plunged 634 points, or more than 5 percent, on the first trading day after the downgrade. The market had triple-digit swings throughout that fall. On Monday, S&P upgraded its outlook on the U.S. debt rating to Stable from Negative. That doesnt restore the U.S. governments top-shelf credit rating, but it does mean that S&P is unlikely to cut the rating again in the near future. S&P cited the Federal Reserves willingness to keep interest rates low, which is meant to spur borrowing and spending, and its bond purchasing program, which is meant to encourage investors to buy stocks and other riskier assets. S&P also noted approvingly that Congress had agreed to raise some taxes this year, notably the Social Security tax that most workers pay, which has helped shrink the governments budget deficit.

Thanks again for all who made a donation, on behalf of the members of Xi Epsilon Chi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, Inverness. Flo HaywardDont cast stonesIs anyone else sick and tired of the phony Republican outrage over each and every action taken (or not taken) by the Obama administration? First, let me say that Benghazi, the IRS actions and the Associated Press issues are important and we the people have a right to know if any crime was committed. Unless and until such allegations can be proven, however, can Republicans please remember they are living in a glass house themselves? Benghazi? Four Americans died during this attack and that is terrible. Keep in mind, however, that more than 12 Americans died during attacks on our embassies, consulates and other government buildings during the prior administration. Most of these attacks were outside of Iraq and Afghanistan and, therefore, cannot be dismissed as a hazard of a war zone. And, how many thousands of young Americans died and continue to die because the prior administration altered intelligence information and outright lied about WMDs just so they could justify invasion of Iraq? So, why are Republicans now demonstrating a lynchmob mentality? Since the Secretary of State in charge during the Benghazi attack is currently a hands-down leader in the 2016 presidential race, I cant help but wonder if this outrage is more political in nature than it is in finding the truth. The IRS? Doesnt anyone remember Nixons enemies list? Or the IRS investigation into the NAACP during the Bush years? The Associated Press? If there indeed is no legal justification for this, heads should roll. Freedom of the press should not be jeopardized. By all means investigate all these issues, but please spare us the Republican dog-andpony show. Hopefully, their minds are not so closed that an honest attempt to find the truth can be accomplished.Evlyn Skurow Crystal River F or decades, Florida has been recognized for its clear springs, attracting millions of visitors from across the world to view and swim in the refreshing waters on a sunny day. At the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the states Water Management Districts, we recognize that we cant take our precious springs for granted. Thats why we have been busy implementing the three Rs of environmental protection: Research, Regulation and Restoration, all leading to the most important R: Results. Water Management Districts set minimum flows by rule for the amount of water in springs needed to protect the environment. These minimum flows are based on extensive science and are often peer-reviewed by independent scientists. While there have been only 22 minimum flows set for springs since the legislature established the requirement in 1972, the Water Management Districts under Gov. Scott are on track to set 49 additional minimum flows and levels for springs before the end of 2014, more than doubling efforts of the past two decades. The minimum flows will result in a recovery plan to restore spring flows. These recovery plans can address the approximately 5 to 10 percent decline in spring flows that appear to be caused by withdrawals, rather than drought. As part of a comprehensive approach to improving our springs, simultaneously the DEP continues to develop restoration plans for reversing pollution. The DEP adopts plans that identify the projects, financial resources and schedules necessary to restore springs that contain excessive pollution. By the end of 2014, the DEP will have adopted restoration plans expected to benefit more than 250 springs boosted further by the $10 million investment in springs projects approved by Gov. Scott and the Florida Legislature for this fiscal year. These restoration plans are also based on the best available science and undergo rigorous analysis and community input, providing a vigorous one-two punch of research and regulation for springs. In addition, the DEP seeks conservation land purchases with a focus on protecting springs and improving water quality and quantity. As part of that effort, the governor and cabinet in March approved two major land purchases to benefit springs. A 690-acre portion of land around Wakulla Springs and a 599-acre property on the Suwannee River will help protect surrounding springs. Gov. Scott this month approved $70 million for Florida Forever conservation land purchases, and the DEP will focus a significant portion of this budget on springs protection. The Water Management Districts have committed to spending nearly $11 million this year for springs protection and restoration activities, while the DEP with support from the Florida Legislature, has more than doubled the amount spent on springs over the previous three fiscal years combined. The DEP has also taken on the task of turning Silver Springs attraction, a longstanding theme park, into a state park. Onsite buildings will be renovated this year, while scientifically sound nutrient reduction projects are implemented. This decision was made only after extensive public debate. The DEP and Water Management Districts are addressing problems caused by withdrawals by setting minimum flows, necessary recovery plans, and establishing water quality standards and action plans for springs. Collectively, the DEP and the Water Management Districts share a sense of urgency about our springs never shown before and are constantly working to protect and preserve these Florida icons. Greg Munson is the DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.

Last year, the county billed Duke for $36 million in property taxes, but the utility claimed the appraised value of its property was too high, and refused to pay the full bill, sending the county only $19 million as a good faith payment and challenging the rest of the tax bill in court. This led county Property Appraiser Geoff Greene to commission a $330,000 outside appraisal of the utilitys assets in the county. This appraisal concluded Dukes property has been significantly undervalued because of the utilitys method for calculating the value of property, which is generally the original cost of the property minus depreciation. The appraisal company said this approach does not reflect the actual current value of the property. The new appraisal puts the value of Dukes Citrus County properties at almost $3.7 billion, which at current millage rates would generate a tax bill of more than $54 million. With the suit brought by Duke last year regarding its 2012 tax assessment and the much higher assessment generated by the new appraisal, the stage is set for ongoing litigation that will likely continue for at least a couple of more years unless some settlement is reached in the meantime. The dollars separating what Duke claims it owes and what the county believes it owes are significant, and for the utility, the cost of litigation is just another cost of doing business one that ultimately goes into the rates customers pay. As a consequence, continued litigation seems likely. This is a bad situation, but it is one created by the regulations under which utilities operate. These regulations will allow Duke to recover from its customers about $1.7 billion for the shuttered nuclear plan expenses beginning in 2017, even though the plant will never generate another kilowatt of electricity. This fact made the decision to close the plant much less painful for the company, since customers will pick up most of the tab. We would much prefer for Duke and the county to reach an amicable resolution and for us to move forward without more litigation, but given the chasm separating the two, this does not appear likely. The most likely outcome is continuing litigation until there is a final judicial order saying who is right and who is wrong in the dispute. This cannot come soon enough. THE ISSUE: New appraisal boosts Dukes taxable value.OUR OPINION: Duke/county battle likely to continue.

Discount nice Im calling to say thank you for the nice surprise I received today. I was having lunch at the Hen House and I received my bill and on my bill there was a star and because of that star, I was given a nice discount on my lunch and Id like to say thank you very much to Kim, the owner of the Hen House, and to all her staff. All of her waitresses are the nicest people youd ever want to meet and when youre a widow living on a fixed income, every little bit helps. Thank you again, Kim, and thank you to all the waitresses at the Hen House. Use common sense In response to the editors note about making left turns at Meadowcrest off (U.S.) 19: Yellow light is most welcome. We need your note on flashing yellow lights in big headlines for the young and others to see. It seems that most of them dont realize what a flashing yellow light means. So you not only need to know the traffic rules, but use some common sense in driving.Restored faithI just read the article about Surprise to honor fallen hero in this mornings newspaper (May 31) about the restoration of Sgt. Robert Surbers truck that is being restored so his sister can use it when she gets out of basic training. I think it s fab ulous. It restored my faith in people around this area and even though Im a guy, it brought tears to my eyes. Thank God there are people like that still here. I want to give all of you a great big thanks. God bless you.Wasted dollarsI still would like to know why the hospital wasnt put up for sale before we spent $3 million or $4 million of the taxpayers money and giving it to lawyers.Needed help A few months ago in your column, someone was upset about an eyesore home and yard on their street. Just a thought: Maybe that person was having a problem, you know, having a financial problem and they could have used your help with their grass and etc., instead of your criticism.Our mistake This is Friday, May 31, and Im reading in the Scene in the paper, A brief history of the Citrus County Cruisers. I would like to congratulate Ken McNally for writing the article and I am a member of the club. But Ive got to say, if youre going to be in charge of the Car Corner, you really need to learn the difference between a 1955 Chevrolet and the 1957 Chevrolet theyre showing the picture of. I love them both, but he made a mistake.Editors note:The mistake was the Chronicles. Ken had it correct in the original. Road repair drags Im wondering how much longer we must endure the snails pace repair on a twoblock stretch of North Apopka Avenue. Totally ridiculous potholes. Its unbelie vable. How much longer before its repaired? Are they going to take another two or three months just with one or two people looking at it every day.Lower taxes When politicians increase taxes for Duke Energy, the people will end up paying higher rates. What we really need is lower taxes and smaller government. Realistic blaming Why is the liberal tendency to blame every hitch in societys collective gallop on someone or something other than the actual offender? Guns cause crime. Freedom causes terrorism. Wealthy people cause poverty. SUVs cause bad weather. Junk food causes Michael Moores waistline. And criticizing those who hold the aforementioned nonsense to be true is racist. Following the Newtown, Conn., massacre, liberals decried gun ownership and the National Rifle Association for its purported role in the horror and demanded draconian infringements on the Bill of Rights. Oddly, the millions of legal gun owners nationwide were uninvolved in the Newtown massacre but passing useless laws (like the ones Connecticut already had) restricting lawabiding Americans rights and blaming guns while counterproductive was dramatically easier. After all, blaming guns for the violence that has turned cities like Chicago and Detroit into gladiatorial arenas is unlikely to cost the Democrat Party the support of the gladiators. Thats dishonest, and dishonesty is easy. As the civilized world reeled in horror at the savage brutality of the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby, our leftleaning friends raced to reassure us that Muslims present no danger. Even as the Woolwich murder shook our collective sense of security, the socialist paradise of Sweden was rocked by anti-integration riots perpetrated not by xenophobic red-state types nor even by racist Republicans, but Muslim immigrants. President Obama, who declared to the United Nations in the wake of the Benghazi massacre that the future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, recently delivered another speech that condemned terror without acknowledging the religious identity proudly crowed by both the Woolwich butchers and the Stockholm rioters. While our president takes pains to avoid insulting the prophet of Islam some Democrats following the Boston Marathon attacks offered wishes that the perpetrators would be white Americans. This is denial, and denial is easy. Can it be that Islam and terrorism share a direct causal relationship? It seems to me that liberals tend to worry more about hurting the delicate feelings of Tawhal, Dariq and Hassan than they do about reporting the identity and motivation of those who seek to murder Tom, Dick and Harry. We live in a nation that not only tolerates the blatant religious hatred proclaimed by Islam extremists like the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Nation of Islam, but offers those hate-mongers constitutional protections. Thats ignorance, and ignorance is easy. The list of similar hypocrisies goes on. Liberals despising rich people at least, rich people who dont host fundraisers for Obama. To the left, wealth is a zero-sum concept. If, say, George Soros has billions of dollars, then someone in Oakland, Calif., must be living in squalor. Soros does have billions of dollars, and theres no shortage of squalor in Oakland. But the latter has nothing to do with the former. And villainizing Soros isnt going to remove squalor from Oakland. Theres nothing wrong with envying those who are better off, as long as that envy inspires you to improve your surroundings and not degrade theirs. Thats greed, and greed is easy. Its human nature to seek the simplest answers. Fundamentally, the simplest explanations are likely the correct ones. The solutions to most of the problems we face as a nation are, in fact, quite simple. Blame criminals for crime. Blame terrorists for terrorism. Blame the culture of envy for the rise of poverty. Blame the responsible parties for the problems they create. That might not be easy, but it is simple. Gerard Del Vecchio Hernando Fed up Inglis, Citrus Countys neighbor across the barge canal bridge, is a small town of about four square miles, bordering the lower Withlacoochee River. The focal point of the citys commercial activity is the intersection of State Road 40 with U.S. 19. The city had an evolutionary election back in March. Big changes were resoundingly voted in for a town of more than 1,600 with a registered voter roll of over 900 citizens. Seven town charter amendments and the election of one incumbent and two newcomers to the town council put a new face on local politics. Of more than 400 voters polling that day, 58 percent said yes to change, across the ballot. The election results were altered when a member of the opposition, Gordon Fulwood, brought suit to reverse the seven amendments. In two hearings, a judge ruled two amendments did not meet the requirements of Florida law or administrative code. The opposition was represented by council who prepared a wellresearched brief and presented same in a forthright argument. The lame-duck council instructed the city attorney not to take any action whatsoever. He did as instructed and told the judge why. She masterfully kept a straight face. Fulwood can be thanked for his efforts because the nullification has had a more positive effect than negative on what the change advocates hope to accomplish. That doesnt mean that change will come easy, but it will come. Inglis is the last incorporated town of its size in our area to maintain a municipal police and fire department. Its best management practices didnt make it out of the last century. Repeatedly, its CPA firm, auditing under state mandate, has warned the city that its controls and overall financial management procedures were not adequate. Glaring proof of that came with the arrest of the towns accounts payable clerk who for several years added herself to the official vendors list and was able to steal more than $20,000. The Inglis Police Department patrols an area approximately two miles by two miles. The police chief gave the March 2013 activity report to the city council liaison, Commissioner Andrew White, from which he reported, including the following: The department logged 4,524 miles, with a total time worked of 836 man hours 26.97 man hours per day for 31 days. Eight arrests were made, two of which were felonies. 195 calls were answered and 469 security checks made. No distinction is made as to drive-bys, door rattles, stakeouts, etc. You can do the probable math on the miles driven/gas consumed, alone. No wonder the new town council voted to rescind the policy of officers driving their patrol cars out of the town while off duty. Recently, one of the towns firefighters, who is on a popular social media site, was ratted out by an anonymous source. Demonstrating his professional mindset by example was a picture of him and another male mooning the camera, and more than a half dozen, foolish, suggestive and vulgar other photos. He blamed someone else for tagging the mug uh moon shot. In summary, true change is not always good. However, this is the United States of America. When voters decide, subterfuge, whining, libel, threats hollow or real, or intimidation are not going to change the results. If you dont like the way your local politics are going, get out and campaign for change. Do it with honor and real sincerity. The rest of us are fed up with anger, malice, revenge and cowardice.

Authorities said 10 elderly women escaped unharmed when the limousine they were in burst into flames while idling in Northern California. The Sunday morning fire in Walnut Creek comes a little more than a month after five nurses were killed while trapped inside a burning limousine on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. Fire officials said they were called to a gated community in Walnut Creek around 11:35 a.m. Sunday for a vehicle fire and quickly put out the burning 2009 Lincoln Town Car. Many of the women are in their 90s. They were apparently headed to Sonoma to celebrate a friends 96th birthday.Son, 4, fatally shoots father PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. Police in an Arizona town are piecing together the death of a man who was shot by his 4-year-old son. Authorities said Fridays shooting in Prescott Valley of 35-year-old Justin Stanfield Thomas appeared to be a tragic accident. Police said Thomas and his son had traveled from Phoenix to a friends home in Prescott Valley for a surprise visit when the boy found a loaded gun, asked a question about it and pulled the trigger. Prescott Valley police Sgt. Brandon Bonney said Monday that investigators are trying to determine whether the tenant had a reasonable amount of time to secure the weapon. No children lived in the house. Firearms experts say owning weapons carries a certain responsibility and that young children should be taught to avoid handling them. School boasts 24 sets of twins WILMETTE, Ill. A Chicago-area middle school is hoping to claim the world record for the most sets of twins in one grade. Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette has 24 sets of twins in fifth grade. Thats about 10 percent of the class, which has about 475 students. One set of twins is leading the effort to receive Guinness World Records recognition. School officials said Guinness required documentation and birth certificates. The students are awaiting confirmation, which could take several weeks. Three schools currently share the record with 16 pairs of twins in one grade. They are Valley Southwoods Freshman High School in West Des Moines, Iowa; Staples High School in Westport, Conn.; and Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Ill. Federal statistics show about 33 twins per 1,000 births in 2010.

Afghan Taliban attack NATO HQKABUL, Afghanistan Seven Taliban fighters with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns launched a rare assault on NATOs operational headquarters at the military section of Kabuls international airport on Monday. All seven militants were killed. Gunfire and explosions from the pre-dawn battle could be heard in many parts of Kabul. No one was killed except the attackers. The Taliban, who claimed responsibility for the airport attack, have been testing Afghan security forces as foreign combat troops pull back more than a decade after the U.S.-led invasion to oust the Taliban regime.Iraq hit by wave of bombings; 47 killed BAGHDAD A wave of car bombings rocked central and northern Iraq on Monday, killing at least 47 people. Attackers initially targeted market-goers early in the morning, then turned their sights on police and army posts after sunset. Mondays deadliest single attack hit Diyala province when three parked car bombs exploded virtually simultaneously around a wholesale fruit and vegetable market at the height of business in the town of Jidaidat al-Shatt. The town is just outside the provincial capital of Baqouba, about 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. The blasts killed 15 people and wounded 46. Shortly after midday, another car bomb went off near a fish market in the northern Baghdad suburb of Taji, killing seven shoppers and wounding 25, police said. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressBERLIN The swollen Elbe River breached another levee early Monday on its relentless march toward the North Sea, forcing German authorities to evacuate 10 villages and shut down one of the countrys main railway routes. As the surge from the Elbe pushed into rural eastern Germany, there was some relief further upstream as the river slipped back from record levels in Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt state. To the south, the Danube hit a record high Sunday evening in the Hungarian capital, Budapest, then began to ease back Monday. Officials said the city escaped significant damage, and Prime Minister Viktor Orban said soldiers and rescue workers would shift their focus further south. Weeks of heavy rain this spring have sent the Elbe, the Danube and other rivers such as the Vltava and the Saale overflowing their banks, causing extensive damage in central and southern Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. At least 22 flood-related deaths have been reported. The German city of Magdeburg grappled over the weekend with water levels more than 16 feet above normal, but the Elbe retreated by about a foot on Monday. More than 23,000 residents had to leave their homes on Sunday. Officials said an electricity substation in the city was no longer in danger of flooding which would have made the situation worse by cutting off power to the drainage pumps. Further downstream, a levee at Fischbeck, west of Berlin, was breached overnight, prompting officials to evacuate 10 villages in the area. Germanys national railway said it had to close a bridge near Fischbeck that is used by trains linking Berlin to Cologne, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. Some trains were being diverted via other bridges to the north and south, causing significant delays, and others were canceled. The low-lying old district of Lauenburg, a riverside town east of Hamburg, was evacuated as authorities prepared for floodwaters to peak there later this week. Soldiers and volunteers have worked frantically over the past week to fill sandbags and reinforce flood defenses across central Europe. Even with all those efforts, we should accept that we humans should be humble, that even in the 21st century we dont completely control nature that is one lesson from this situation, SaxonyAnhalts interior minister, Holger Stahlknecht, told ZDF television. In Budapest, the Danube peaked late Sunday about a foot above the previous record, set in 2006. River levels across the Czech Republic were falling Monday, although thunderstorms during the night caused some local flash floods. The national police chief, Martin Stovicek, said the countrys death toll reached 11 after a Slovak man drowned in a river near the southwestern town of Susice. Associated Press The village of Fischbeck is flooded by the Elbe river Monday after a dike broke.

Swollen Elbe River breaches new levee Ten villages evacuated in Germany; death toll reaches 11 in Czech Republic Associated Press National Intelligence Director James Clapper prepares to testify April 18 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. When the federal government went looking for phone numbers tied to terrorists, it grabbed the records of just about everyone in America. Why every phone number? Well, you have to start someplace, Clapper told NBC News on Monday. Associated PressWASHINGTONW hen the federal government went looking for phone numbers tied to terrorists, it grabbed the records of just about everyone in America. Why every phone number? Well, you have to start someplace, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC News on Monday. That breadth, that willingness to sweep up enormous information on Americans with no ties to terrorists, is making it hard for the Obama administration to tamp down controversy over a separate program, called PRISM, to monitor Internet traffic. In short, critics ask, if looking for terrorists means collecting every Americans phone records, how can anyone believe the president when he says Americans arent being monitored on the Internet? The Internet program came to light last week in documents published by The Washington Postand Guardian newspapers. It allows the NSA to reach into the data streams of U.S. companies and grab emails, video chats, pictures and more. Just how much the government seizes is unclear. Clapper says it is narrowly focused on foreign targets, and technology companies say they turn over only information thats required by court order. But after reading a leaked court document last week that allowed NSA to sweep up millions of American phone records, Trevor Timm of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said, The question is how broad the orders are theyre giving these companies. PRISM was born late in George W. Bushs administration, but its bloodline can be traced to the frenzied aftermath of 9/11. It used to be that, when the federal government wanted to read a foreigners Yahoo or Microsoft emails, it needed a judges approval. After the attacks, Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to get to skip that oversight and read U.S.-based email accounts in real time. When the New York Timesrevealed the existence of that program, the Bush administration appealed to Congress, saying court approval was too arduous. There were too many emails to monitor. Getting warrants for each one took too long. Sometimes, the government would sweep up Americans emails, but not intentionally. As a matter of due course, if youre targeting something foreign, you could inadvertently intercept an American, said Michael McConnell, the director of national intelligence at the time. Congress agreed. No more warrants. With that, PRISM was born. Now, the government needs only explain to Congress and a secret court exactly how it intends to collect information like emails, Skype video conferences and Facebook messages. Once the court approves the collection rules, the government can grab anything it wants. Judging from the documents released by the Postand Guardian PRISM takes a lot of data and quickly. An NSA document said PRISM was the eavesdropping program used most by the agency. The law says the government must limit its surveillance to people reasonably believed to belocated outside the United States. But everything hinges words such as targeting and collecting, which have unique meanings in the spy world. As the classified court order released last week shows, officials can grab phone logs from everybody and still say they havent targeted or collected information on a single American. Only when an analyst reaches into the archives and looks at the information has something been collected. Clapper uses a library analogy: The government can fill its shelves with books containing the phone numbers of Americans, who theyre talking to, how long they talk and where they call from. That doesnt count as collection. To me, collection of U.S. persons data would mean taking the books off the shelf, opening it up and reading it, he said. To which Timm replied: Clapper has a different definition of collect than most human beings. Born of post-9/11 fervor, domestic spy program casts wide net The law says the government must limit its surveillance to people reasonably believed to be located outside the U.S. But everything hinges words such as targeting and collecting, which have unique meanings in the spy world.

Johnson had reached a deal with prosecutors calling for community service and counseling instead of jail. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh said she would tack on an additional three months probation because Johnson had failed to meet with his probation officer during three previous months. It was all set until Johnson, when asked by McHugh if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear as football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and at that McHugh said she wouldnt accept the deal. I dont know that youre taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this? McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. The whole courtroom was laughing. Im not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isnt a joke. Johnson, 35, tried to apologize and insisted he meant no disrespect. Johnson was on probation after pleading no contest to head-butting his then-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada, during an altercation last August. This is your courtroom. I have no intent to make this a joke. Its not funny, Johnson told the judge. My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face. But McHugh, who could have given Johnson up to a year in jail, was not moved. Johnson then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail. Swickle declined comment on whether he would ask the judge to reduce her sentence. Fan freed in Auburn tree-poisoning caseOPELIKA, Ala. The University of Alabama fan who poisoned Auburn Universitys landmark oak trees at Toomers Corner has been released from jail and cleared to leave the state. Harvey Updyke Jr., 64, left the Lee County jail in Opelika on Monday morning after serving 76 days following his guilty plea. Attorney Andrew Stanley said Updyke was on his way to Louisiana where he will live with his wife, Elva. Hes very sincere. He wants to go back to Louisiana and never wants to be heard from ever again, Stanley said. Updyke also was arrested last September, accused of making a threatening remark to workers at a Lowes store in Hammond, La. Updyke pleaded guilty in March to one count of unlawful damage of an animal or crop facility. He was sentenced to 6 months in jail and credited with 104 days for time already served. Updyke was arrested after a man calling himself Al from Dadeville Updykes middle name is Almorn phoned Paul Finebaums radio show claiming he poured herbicide around the 130-year-old oaks after Auburns win over rival Alabama during the 2010 national championship season.

The most popular equipment Merion was not a golf club but a squeegee. More heavy rain at the U.S. Open flooded a bunker by the 11th green and filled fairways with large puddles and tiny stream. The course was closed for four hours during the first full day of practice, and then shut down for good later in the afternoon. Brandt Jobe played three holes when he heard a horn to stop play. Jim Herman managed to play one hole. Practice rounds are important because only a dozen or so players have ever seen this 100-year-old course, which has not hosted a U.S. Open in 32 years. Workers were busy running squeegees across the greens and fairways during the afternoon before another downpour arrived. After the rain this morning, its going to be very sloppy now, Ernie Els said. Youre not going to see a firm U.S. Open this year, Im sorry. I dont care if they get helicopters flying over the fairways, its not going to dry up. Were going to have a soft golf course this week all week. The forecast was for mostly dry conditions Tuesday and Wednesday,followed by a 40 percent chance of rain on Thursday for the opening round. Merion received more than 3 inches of rain on Friday, and Mondays downpours three of them didnt help. The low point on the East course is the 11th hole, and a bunker was filled with water from an overflowing stream. Course superintendent Matt Shaffer said the base sand was left alone. Workers removed the silt and put about three tons of new sand in the bunker, tamped it down and we were ready to go. For now, officials were hopeful. Shaffer said Merion has had two big rains, and both times 11th green has stayed above water. And while there were tiny streams running through fairways and large pools of water on sections of the greens, the water appeared to drain quickly.

Associated Press Associated PressTim Tebow may still have a future in the NFL after all. The New England Patriots seem to think so and plan to sign him on Tuesday if he passes a physical. He wont be a starting quarterback, of course, with Tom Brady on hand in Foxborough. But certainly hes an intriguing reclamation project yet another chance for coach Bill Belichick to torture the New York Jets, who failed to find a role for Tebow last season. And that could make for quite a Boston Tea-bow Party. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that Tebow will join the Patriots minicamp on Tuesday and sign with the team, pending the medical exam. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. Even when Tebow signs, there is no guarantee he will play.

I think they regained that, Duncan said. Obviously we were glad to win a game here in Game 1. Our goal was to get two. But they got the one tonight. We get to go back home. We got a game here. We have three at home, so were excited about that. But if we play like we did tonight, thats not going to matter. The teams took Monday off, with the series resuming Tuesday night. The Spurs will also host Game 4 on Thursday and Game 5 on Sunday. The finals were once as much a part of June as the heat in this city deep in the heart of Texas. San Antonio won four titles in a nine-year span starting in 1999, but hasnt hosted a game in the NBAs championship round since the Spurs took a 2-0 lead over LeBron James and Cleveland in 2007. The Heat are just 3-22 in San Antonio, though they did win this year even while James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers sat out the late-season meeting. James had no cause for concern after Game 2, which validated his belief that he can depend on his teammates until he gets rolling, as he did late in the third quarter and well into the fourth. But a little doubt seemed to creep into the Spurs Big Three, unusual for a group that has been there, done that. Duncan, Parker and Ginobili have teamed for 99 postseason victories together, second-most in NBA history, a trio that is well aware of how quickly things can change in the playoffs. They changed really quickly in this series, about the time it took James to turn Tiago Splitters dunk attempt into a forever finals highlight with a blocked shot. Of course if you look at the result, being 1-1, its not bad. But you dont want to play like this in an NBA Finals, Ginobili said. You dont want to give them that much confidence, and you feeling bad about yourself. Satisfied but shaken, Spurs bring Finals home Associated PressCHICAGO When it comes to power plays in the Stanley Cup finals, the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins might just prefer to keep going with everyone on the ice. The last two teams in the NHL playoffs have been lousy with the man advantage and terrific at killing penalties during the postseason. When the Blackhawks are forced to play a man down, Michael Frolik and Marcus Kruger are so persistent it almost resembles an even-strength situation. And the Bruins have hulking defenseman Zdeno Chara and goalie Tuukka Rask, who is swallowing everything at the net these days. Heading into Game 1 on Wednesday night, goals on special teams have been so scarce for these teams that a couple for either side could tip the series in one direction. The special teams are kind of key, if you want to (have) success, Frolik said after Chicago held an optional practice on Monday. We try to talk about it all the time about that and make sure were on the same page. Its especially going to be key right now. Weve got to make we are ready for the challenge. So far, so good on that front for the Bruins and Blackhawks. With Frolik and Kruger tying up the action on top of the zone, Chicago has allowed just three goals in 58 powerplay opportunities for an astounding 94.8 percent kill rate. Los Angeles got two of them in the Western Conference finals, but one was a meaningless goal by Tyler Toffoli at the very end of the Blackhawks 4-2 victory in Game 2. The 92.5 percent finish for the 2000 New Jersey Devils is the best playoff rate for a Stanley Cup champion in the last 25 years, according to STATS. Pittsburgh had converted an NHLbest 28.3 percent of its power-play chances heading into the Eastern Conference finals against Boston, but the high-powered Penguins went 0 for 15 with the man advantage during the Bruins impressive four-game sweep. One of the lasting images from Bostons postseason run came with Pittsburgh on the power play in the second period of Game 3. Bruins forward Gregory Campbell broke his right leg when he dove to block Evgeni Malkins hard shot, then limped around for more than 30 seconds until Boston cleared the zone and he was able to get off the ice. Campbells gutsy display served as inspiration for the Bruins, and they went on to finish off the Penguins with a 1-0 victory on Friday. But Campbell will miss the remainder of the playoffs, presenting a challenge for the series against Chicago. Special teams could be crucial in Stanley Cup AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 3, Tigers 2KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jeremy Guthrie pitched impressively into the seventh inning, Salvador Perez hit a two-run triple and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 for their sixth straight victory. Guthrie (7-3) limited the Tigers to a two-run homer by Miguel Cabrera in 6 1-3 innings in helping the Royals to extend their longest winning streak since they won seven straight in September 2011. He gave up six hits and walked three. Aaron Crow replaced Guthrie after he gave up a single to Avisail Garcia and he hit Andy Dirks with an 0-2 pitch. Crow retired Torii Hunter on a fly to shallow right and struck out Cabrera to end the threat. Cabrera, who tops the American League with 90 hits and 69 RBIs, hit his 18th home run in the second after Hunter doubled. Perezs one-out triple in the third scored Alcides Escobar and Eric Hosmer after they each singled. Lorenzo Cains two-out infield single scored Perez with the go-ahead run. Doug Fister (5-4), who is 0-3 in five starts since a victory May 14 over Houston, went the distance. He allowed three runs on nine hits. Greg Holland worked a flawless ninth for his 13th save in 15 opportunities. The Royals are 7-2 in June after losing 20 of 28 games in May. The pitching staff has a 1.44 ERA in June. The Royals improved to 8-3 since George Brett was named the interim hitting coach on May 30. *Note: Standings do not reflect the results of Mondays game between the Red Sox and Rays. 2013 Tampa Bay Rays schedule June 11 vs Boston June 12 vs Boston June 13 vs Kansas City June 14 vs Kansas City June 15 vs Kansas City June 16 vs Kansas City June 18 at Boston June 19 at Boston June 20 at N.Y.

Former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist sees the logic in the move. If you can find a club thats mature enough to handle it as an organization, then youre going to find the right spot for him, Sundquist said. What I mean by that is all the media mania and that sort of thing. The club says, Look, this is the reason were bringing him on. We feel he can bring X, Y, Z and A, B, C to the table. Explain it to Tim, explain it to the media, explain it to your fan base and explain it to your organization. That description seems to fit New England perfectly. One of the NFLs most polarizing players, Tebow spent a lost season in 2012 with the New York Jets, playing sparingly behind struggling starter Mark Sanchez. Some fans thought he got a raw deal and deserved more of a chance; others thought he lacked the skills to be a pro quarterback. He was released in April with barely a shrug hardly the ending most Jets fans envisioned considering his super-hyped welcome to the Big Apple. Tebow won two national titles at Florida and was a first-round draft pick in 2010 by Denver. As a rookie, Tebow threw just 82 passes in nine games, starting three. But in 2011, he started 11 games, throwing for 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and took the Broncos to a wild-card win over Pittsburgh before an AFC divisional playoff loss to New England, 45-10. Despite the Broncos playoff run, he was traded to New York the following offseason when Denver signed Peyton Manning. Tebow threw only eight passes for the Jets, completing six, ran 32 times for 102 yards and was used mostly to protect the punter. Unfortunately, coach Rex Ryan said in a statement when Tebow was released, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. The Patriots have Ryan Mallett as the backup to Brady; they released QB Mike Kafka on Monday. Asked if Tebow had signed, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight. Tebows NFL career appeared over when the Jets couldnt trade him at draft time and wound up cutting the left-handed quarterback, who won the 2007 Heisman Trophy. But now he is headed to New England, where the man who drafted him as coach of the Broncos, Josh McDaniels, is an offensive assistant under Belichick. And apart from winning Super Bowls, Belichick likes nothing better than sticking it to the Jets. Hes had a running feud with Ryan for nearly four seasons, in part because Ryan once said he wasnt hired to kiss Belichicks rings. Belichick was Jets coach for one day in 2000, infamously resigning with a hand-written note. He soon joined New England, and has been regularly beating the Jets for more than a decade. Revitalizing Tebows career would be another big step toward humiliating New Englands archrival. Tebow has been criticized for his throwing motion but has said he wants to play quarterback, not switch positions. Still, the Patriots might need help at tight end after Rob Gronkowski underwent a fourth operation for a broken forearm and faces back surgery. At 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds, Tebow has the size to play that spot. Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy Brown, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater at defensive back when injuries hit that position. Belichick also has been willing to gamble on players discarded by other teams. Some have succeeded, like wide receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss and running back Danny Woodhead. Some havent, including wide receiver Chad Johnson and defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth. The media circus that surrounded Tebow in Denver and with the Jets also could be minimized by Belichick, who keeps a tight lid on players interactions with reporters. TEBOW Continued from Page B1 Sports BRIEFS Lionel Hollins out as Memphis Grizzlies coach The Memphis Grizzlies have decided to part with the winningest coach in the franchises history, telling Lionel Hollins they will not be renewing his contract as head coach coming off their first trip to the Western Conference finals. Hollins confirmed Monday night to The Associated Press that he had been told his contract would not be renewed. Hollins contract had been set to expire June 30, but the Grizzlies issued a statement Monday night saying that Hollins was no longer with the organization. Jason Levien, chief executive officer and managing partner of the Grizzlies, said they decided after talks with Hollins and his agent to go in a different direction and thanked the veteran coach for his work with the franchise since its start in Vancouver. Hollins, who won an NBA title as a player with Portland in 1977, had been with the franchise for 10 of its first 12 seasons and was the interim head coach first in 199900 when he replaced Brian Hill after a 4-18 start in Vancouver and again for four games in 2004-05 after Hubie Brown resigned. Pistons hire Maurice Cheeks as new coach DETROIT Maurice Cheeks is getting a third shot to be an NBA head coach. The Detroit Pistons are desperately hoping he makes the most of the opportunity he was given Monday. Cheeks was 284-286 in the regular season and 5-11 during three postseasons while leading the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers, a team he helped win an NBA title as a point guard. Detroit fired Lawrence Frank in April, a day after finishing 29-53. Frank was 54-94 in two seasons with the Pistons. Cheeks becomes the franchises fourth coach in six seasons following Frank, John Kuester and Michael Curry and ninth since the 1999-2000 season. Memento dispute settled, Kobes parents say sorryNEWARK, N.J. Kobe Bryant reached a settlement with a New Jersey auction house that allows his mother sell a small amount of his memorabilia, while also getting an apology from his parents, who thanked him for his financial support. Kenneth Goldin, founder of southern New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions, said Monday his company and the Los Angeles Lakers star had reached a settlement. Through a publicist, an attorney for Bryant also confirmed the dispute had been resolved. Citing a confidentiality agreement, Goldin wouldnt discuss details of the settlement beyond identifying the six items to be auctioned, including two uniforms worn by Bryant at Lower Merion High School outside Philadelphia and two 2000 NBA championship rings Bryant gave to his parents. In an emailed statement, Bryants parents wrote: We regret our actions and statements related to the Kobe Bryant auction memorabilia. We apologize for any misunderstanding and unintended pain we may have caused our son and appreciate the financial support that he has provided to us over the years. We also would like to apologize to Goldin Auctions for their inadvertent involvement in this matter and thank them for their assistance. Oudins defense ends in first round at Aegon ClassicBIRMINGHAM, England Melanie Oudins defense of her Aegon Classic title lasted only 57 minutes Monday, with the American losing 6-3, 6-1 to Croatian qualifier Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round. Oudin beat Jelena Jankovic in straight sets in last years final of the grass-court tournament, winning her only WTA title. The 21-year-old was a quarterfinalist at the 2009 U.S. Open but has struggled with her consistency since. Eighth-seeded Maria Joao Koehler, No. 10 Hsieh Su-wei and No. 11 Ayumi Morita were also eliminated in the first round. Hewitt rallies past Russell in Queens first roundLONDON Former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt rallied past Michael Russell of the United States 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the first round at the Queens Club on Monday. The Australian has won this Wimbledon tuneup four times as well as the 2001 U.S. Open and 2002 Wimbledon. He has now won 111 matches on grass. Roger Federer leads among current players with 112. Hewitt sent a forehand into the net to drop the opening set. He ran away with the second set after saving six break points in the second game to lead 2-0. After an early exchange of breaks in the decider, Hewitt broke to lead 5-3. Cincinnati Bengal Adam Pacman Jones arrestedCINCINNATI Court documents show Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones has been arrested and jailed on an assault charge after police said he tried to hurt a woman. A police complaint states Jones is accused of striking the Cincinnati woman shortly before midnight June 5. The police report lists the injury as apparently minor. Jones was arrested Monday. A message left for his agent hasnt been returned. Court documents show Jones was released on his own recognizance with his arraignment on the misdemeanor charge scheduled for Tuesday. Its not the first time Jones has been in trouble. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar months earlier.US faces Panama in World Cup qualifyingSEATTLE Ask FIFA and the organization says it sees no problem with playing on a quality artificial field. U.S. Soccer still does. Playing on a temporary grass field is the situation that will face the United States on Tuesday night when the men face Panama in a World Cup qualifier. The U.S. (2-1-1) improved to seven points in the 10-game final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region after winning at Jamaica last Friday night 2-1. The U.S. trails Costa Rica (2-1-1) on goal difference and is ahead of Mexico (1-0-4) on goals scored. Its not an ideal surface, but U.S. Soccer wanted to reward Seattle for the support it has shown for soccer in recent years with the Sounders in the MLS. From wire reports

B4 T UESDAY, J UNE 11, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE G OLF F ew other American courses have the kind of history found at Merion Golf Club. This is the course where Bobby Jones completed his impregnable quadrilateral more commonly known as the Grand Slam in 1930 when he won the U.S. Amateur. Its where Ben Hogan completed a remarkable comeback from a near-fatal car accident by hitting a 1-iron to the 18th green for par in the final round to get into a playoff in 1950, which he won the next day. There are no flags on the greens, rather red wicker baskets are attached to the top of each pin. Merion has hosted 18 USGA championships dating to 1904, more than any other golf course. But when David Graham won the U.S. Open in 1981, the prevailing thought was that Merion was history when it came to hosting the toughest test in golf. The U.S. Open had become too big. Merion was considered small, not only the length of the golf course (6,996 yards) but the 111-acre property left little room for staging such a big tournament. Ultimately, the USGA did not want to turn its back on a course considered one of the best in the land. When we closed up in 1981, its not as if the course didnt play well, but we really thought this was the last time at least at a national open championship you would ever see Merion played on TV, USGA executive director Mike Davis said. And really, it had nothing to do with the golf course in terms of a test of golf. But it had everything to do with, How do you fit a modern day U.S. Open on this 111 acres? They have managed by capping ticket sales at 25,000 a day, down from an average of 40,000 at other courses. And theyre using the backyards of homes along the perimeter of the course, along with Haverford College, to stage hospitality areas. As for the golf course? No one ever doubted it could provide a stern test, even though it is short by modern standards. The opening stretch has a pair of par 5s early (one of them at 628 yards) and a 256-yard par 3. Merion offers a breather with a seven-hole stretch in the middle that features four par 4s under 400 yards. Then it saves a haymaker for the end of the round with the 521-yard closing hole. If conditions are soft, Davis believes it could yield more birdies than any other U.S. Open. All he cares is that it identifies the best player. I thought they had skipped over Merion, and I didnt know why, because I thought Merion was a great course, said Jack Nicklaus, who lost in an 18-hole playoff to Lee Trevino at Merion in the 1971 U.S. Open. I dont think its all about what you shoot. Its about whos the best player on e s r u o c f l o g t a h t The best player remains Tiger Woods, who has won four times on the PGA Tour this year and is e h t u B d l r o w e h t n i 1 o N t a k c a b has gone five years since winning his 14th major in the 2008 U.S. Open. Davis believes more players are capable of winning at Merion than at other U.S. Opens, a major that has never been kind to favorites. Throw out Woods, and the last time a player from the top five in the world ranking won the Open was Curtis Strange in 1989. Webb Simpson is the defending champion, and he will try to join Strange (1988-89) and Hogan (1950-51) as the only back-toback winners in the last 75 years. Woods and Matt Kuchar are the only players who have won more than once this year. Of the top 20 players in the world at the start of the year, 14 have yet to win on the PGA Tour this season. Not since 2006 at Royal Liverpool has Woods won a major on a course he has never seen. He has company. Merion has been out of the picture for so long that only 11 players in the field have competed here in the 1989 U.S. Amateur, the 2005 U.S. Amateur and the 2009 Walker Cup. That short list includes Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler. For others, it will be a new experience one the USGA is happy to provide. Its obviously historic, said 2006 U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy. Its buried in a really nice neighborhood in Philadelphia. It has the basket pins. Its one of the courses all the architecture aficionados talk about it. Its nice when you play an Open where they take you to a place you want to play.

RETURN TO MERION FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 32 YEARS Even though it has hosted a record 18 USGA championships, the U.S. Open has not been played at Merion Golf Club since David Graham won in 1981. The 32 years is the \277 fth-longest time between U.S. Opens for a golf course. SHORTEST GOLF COURSE FOR A MAJOR IN NINE YEARS The scorecard for Merion will be 6,996 yards at par 70, making it the shortest course for any major championship since Shinnecock Hills (also 6,996 yards) in the 2004 U.S. Open. The difference? Merion has \277 ve par 4s that are under 400 yards. FIRST MAJOR IN THREE DECADES WITHOUT FLAGS The signature of Merion is the wicker baskets instead of \300 ags that are attached to the pins red for the front, orange for the back. The idea came from course designer Hugh Wilson, though exactly what inspired him remains unknown. Wickers were used at three of the four previous Opens at Merion. The exception was 1950. LONG PUTTERS RECORD AT MAJOR CHAMPIONS Four of the last six majors have been won by players using an anchored putting stroke, with Adam Scott at the Masters completing this version of a Grand Slam. This much is known: A long putter (belly or broom) anchored to the body can only be used in three more U.S. Opens. The putters will be illegal on Jan. 1, 2016. 1 350 yards, par 4: This likely will be an iron off the tee, which leaves a wedge to the green. A sycamore tree to the right might keep players from trying to drive the green. A dozen bunkers line the \277 nal 100 yards into the green. Its a gentle opening hole. 2 556 yards, par 5: The fairway has been shifted to the right to tighten the landing area, and it brings in an out-of-bounds to the right. The left side features some of the thickest rough on the course. For the second shot, players can try to reach the green or lay up short of a cross bunker about 35 yards in front of the green. 3 256 yards, par 3: Two tee boxes will be used, measuring 219 yards and 256 yards. The green slopes severely from back left to front right, and it is surrounded by bunkers. One of them short and right of the green is one of the deepest at Merion. The toughest recovery is anything left of the green. 4 628 yards, par 5: A new tee box brings the fairway bunkers into play. It will be tough to keep the drive in the fairway because the landing area slopes from right-to-left. For the second shot, players cant see over a cross bunker. The green is fronted by a creek, increasing the risk of going for the green in two. 5 504 yards, par 4: One of the most demanding driving holes, bends hard to the left with a stream running down the left side of the entire hole, and the fairway slopes to the left. The approach can be bounced onto the green, which is the most severely sloped on the course. The worst place to be is right of the green, for that leads to exceptionally fast putts. 6 487 yards, par 4: Another long par 4 features a partially blind tee shot over a crest to a bowl-shaped fairway. The green is pitched from back left to the front, and the tricky part is a false front. The options are to run the approach onto the green or \300 y it to the middle of the green. 7 360 yards, par 4: This starts a stretch of \277 ve holes that are all under 375 yards and could be the place to pick up birdies. Most players will opt for a long iron off the tee to a partially blind, angled landing area. A tee shot too far to the right will \300 irt with out-of-bounds and overhanging trees. 8 359 yards, par 4: Another long iron or fairway metal to a curved landing area with thick native grass on both sides of the fairway. That leaves a wedge to a small green protected by deep rough and a large bunker in the front. The green has several contours and slopes from back left to front right. Par is dif \277 cult for those missing the green. 9 236 yards, par 3: This plays downhill to a green shaped like a kidney, with ragged bunkers on both sides and water in front and to the right of the green. It could be about a 6-iron for front hole locations, and long irons to carry the left bunker when the hole location is back and left. 10 303 yards, par 4: Every player can reach the green, but the tee shot must be shaped severely from right-to-left to get around the corner. The safe play is a mid-iron to a narrow fairway. Any shot that misses the green to the left will wind up in deep fescue that could make it tough to get the next shot on the green. 11 367 yards, par 4: Another long iron off the tee, and utterly important to \277 nd the fairway, which drops from the tee box to create a blind shot and is \300 anked by Baf\300 ing Brook on the left. Anyone missing the fairway might have to play short of the brook, which hugs the front, right and rear of the teardrop-shaped green. This could be the ultimate birdie-orbust hole at Merion. 12 403 yards, par 4: This sharp dogleg right features a fairway that slopes severely to the right. The right side of the fairway leaves a more level lie, though it is framed by extremely penal rough on the right. The green slopes from back left to front right, making it tough to save par on any shot that is long or left. 13 115 yards, par 3: This de\277 nes the extreme difference at Merion all the other par 3s are over 200 yards, and this is a sand wedge. The oval-shaped green might be the smallest on the course with challenging contours. The view of the green is obscured from the tee by a huge bunker in front. 14 464 yards, par 4: This is where some players might \277 nd out if there is any rust on the driver. There are bunkers in the landing area and high native grass to the left. The second shot will be a mid-iron to a large, contoured green. Anything missing the green to the left could bounce off the closely mown knoll and \300 irt with out-of-bounds. 15 411 yards, par 4: Players can do whatever they want off the tee, though its an intimidating shot with a long iron or driver. The hole bends to the right, with three deep bunkers protecting the right side and out-of-bounds on the left. Going into the bunkers makes it tough to get onto the green. The putting surface features some of the most severe slopes at Merion. 16 430 yards, par 4: A fairway metal likely will be the choice on the famous Quarry Hole to stay short of the hazard. The green features a pronounced depression in the front night. This might be the last realistic chance at birdie. 17 246 yards, par 3: Players will face tee shots of 246 yards and 195 yards, a dramatic hole with amphitheater seating. The hole is slightly downhill to a green that has a deep ridge in the front that must be carried from the tee. The slopes feed balls to the back right portion of the green. Front hole locations are the most dif \277 cult. 18 521 yards, par 4: Merion has one of the most famous 18th holes because of Ben Hogan and his 1-iron on the 72nd hole of the 1950 U.S. Open. The drive is partially blind over the quarry to a landing zone that pitches downhill and steeply to the left at 300 yards. WOODS MAHAN SCHWARTZEL This golf course is not built on sand, so its got the heavier soils, USGA executive director Mike Davis said. But it is maybe the best draining golf course I have ever seen. If you walk this course, you know theres hardly any flat lies at Merion. Merion is 6,996 yards on the scorecard, the shortest U.S. Open course since Shinnecock Hills in 2004. The rough is thicker than usual compared with most recent U.S. Opens, though soft greens are a recipe for low scoring no matter the golf course. Congressional was softened significantly by rain, and Rory McIlroy shattered the scoring record at 16-under 268 for an eight-shot win. As for the week, it rained so much at Bethpage Black in 2002 that the tournament barely finished 72 holes on Monday, with Lucas Glover winning. Els mentioned the firm fairways because thats what can make Merion tricky. Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy were among those who came to Merion early, and they all spoke about the experience necessary to find the right angle off the tee to keep the ball in the fairway. Geoff Ogilvy played Sunday for the first time and mentioned the best driver would fare well but not necessarily the straightest driver. With soft fairways, it becomes more of a target. Obviously with it being a little soft, it becomes a little more simple than what it was, Scott said. The ball is just going to stop where it lands. Davis said the USGA would try to move the hole locations to some of the higher spots on the greens to avoid standing water if it rains on Thursday. As for the fairways, even with standing water, the U.S. Open could be played as long as players could move the ball to a dry spot that didnt add significant distance to their shots. The next two days could be crucial. We just need a little bit of sunshine, Shaffer said.

I recently saw a patient who presented with a clot in a superficial vein of the leg. This is usually not a serious condition. He was a heavy smoker who quit smoking a few years ago. I advised him to get a CT scan of his chest as per recent recommendations. It showed lung cancer. Hopefully, he will be cured of the cancer in the future. A study is published in NEJM (New England Journal of Medicine). The National Lung Screening Trial found that CT scans were highly sensitive in detecting lung cancer in smokers, when compared with chest X-rays. In this study, almost 26,000 participants underwent CT scans and almost the same number underwent chest Xrays. These were all heavy smokers. A total of 7,191 participants (27.3 percent) in the low-dose CT group and 2,387 (9.2 percent) in the chest Xray group had a positive screening result. If there was cancer, the CT scan picked it up in 94 percent of cases. The problem is if the CT scan picked up a mass, it may or may not be cancer and it turned out to be cancer in only about 27 percent of cases. A positive result means there was a mass or nodule in the lung, which required follow up by either further scan or, in some cases, a biopsy of the mass. Sometimes, what looks like cancer may turn out to be inflammation or a benign noncancerous mass. buse of prescription drugs has become almost epidemic in the U.S., yet many drug abusers do not realize they have a problem. Many people mistakenly think prescription drugs are safe because a doctor prescribed them. Whenever you use a medication for the wrong purpose or in larger amounts than prescribed, you are abusing prescription drugs. When taken correctly, prescription drugs make our lives easier and help us to manage illness and pain. However, a prescription drug can be dangerous if it is not taken as instructed or is combined with other medications or alcohol. Here are some guidelines for prescription drug safety: Tell your doctor honestly about all the medications you are taking, including overthe-counter drugs and vitamin supplements, and about your alcohol consumption. Never take someone elses prescription medication to try to relieve your symptoms. Each body responds to drugs differently, and you could have an adverse reaction. Do not keep prescription drugs where children can reach them or where visitors to your home can access them. Dispose of leftover prescription drugs when you no longer need them. Do not suddenly stop taking a prescription drug or attempt to wean yourself off a drug without a doctors supervision.

Those who are uninsured or underinsured often face delays in testing and treatment for many different health issues. We also know certain racial groups also face the same challenges, and now new data supports the fact black patients continue to have longer waits from diagnosis of prostate cancer to treatment, compared with Caucasian patients, according to a study recently published in Cancer. In this study, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiologic and End Results-Medicare linked database to analyze potential differences in the time it took to treat 2,506 black and 21,454 Caucasian patients diagnosed with localized prostate cancer between 2004 and 2007. All of the patients in this study were treated within 12 months; however differences based upon race were noted. The researchers found that, among all risk groups, the time from diagnosis to definitive treatment with either surgery or radiation therapy was longer for black patients. This difference was most pronounced in high-risk cancer patients, those who have a very high PSA level or a high Gleason score. Racial differences persisted for any treatment at all in the analysis, from diagnostic procedures and testing to the actual treatment itself. In high-risk disease compared with low-risk disease, and in more recent years, the delay to definitive treatment was longer than had been measured before, showing that we are actually losing ground on trying to eliminate these disparities. To summarize, black prostate cancer patients experienced longer time from diagnosis to treatment than Caucasian patients. black patients appear to experience disparities across all aspects of this disease process, and together these factors play an important role in the observed differences in rates of recurrence and mortality among black and Caucasian prostate cancer patients, with black having a higher chance of recurrence and death from prostate cancer than Caucasian patients.

S ixteen-year-old Megan Webb takes unsteady steps in the physical therapy room at Ranken Jordan, a pediatric specialty hospital in Maryland Heights, Mo. The Belleville West teen is recovering from a traumatic brain injury, which she suffered during a car crash that left her friend dead earlier this year. With her physical therapist Melissa Rentfrow following closely behind, Megan walked unassisted up and down a hallway at Ranken Jordan during a recent therapy session. She wears an orthopedic brace to stabilize her left leg and uses a cane as needed. At times, Rentfrow holds onto a fabric belt with handles around Megans waist. Rentfrow said its a gait belt used to help stabilize individuals with balance issues. Rentfrow also wrapped a long strip of white fabric around Megans left leg. It helps stabilize her leg and keeps her left toes from going in, her mother, Tracy Webb, explained. Walking is just the warm-up for Megan. She then moves on to the Total Gym machine to work on strengthening her left leg. Rentfrow said the brain injury affected Megans left side more. Next, Megan walks on a treadmill and then maneuvers up and down stairs. In addition, Rentfrow shows Megan, a varsity volleyball standout, and her mother stretching exercises she can do at home. No matter what crazy exercises Rentfrow comes up with, she said Megan never complains. Prior to her physical therapy session, Megan practiced counting money and making the correct change during an occupational therapy session. Megan is in the day treatment program at Ranken Jordan. For six hours every weekday, Megan does speech, occupational and physical therapies as well as homebound schoolwork. Its definitely all worth it, Tracy said. Well do whatever it takes. Megan recently got Botox injections in her left leg to help relax the muscle and increase her range of motion, Tracy said. Megan has also tested out a WalkAide brace on her left leg, which electrically stimulates it to work as it should, according to Tracy. Tracy has been by her daughters side since the crash occurred Jan. 26. Tracy said she had no choice but to give up the new job she secured prior to Megans accident so she could care for her daughter. Another one will come when the time is right, Tracy said. Megans friend and the driver of the car, Stephen Zehner, 18, died in the crash. Im sad he died. We were pretty close, Megan said. Hes watching (over) us. Megan doesnt remember anything about the crash. Its all a blur, she said. I remember getting in the car and I put on my seat belt, and he didnt. Megan credits Stephens girlfriend, Anna Kreeb, with saving her life. She found me first, Megan said. Tracy said it was terrible to get that phone call the night of the crash. It was surreal, she said. There was no doubt in my mind she was going to be OK. Stephens mother, Ginger Zehner-Denton, 39, of Mascoutah, was charged May 15 with unlawful delivery of alcohol, a class 4 felony. According to court records, Zehner-Denton allegedly purchased a six-pack of beer and a pint of whiskey between Jan. 25 and 26 and provided the alcohol to Zehner. The death of Stephen Zehner occurred as a result of such delivery, the court records state. Megan spent three months at St. Louis Childrens Hospital recovering from her extensive injuries, which included a brain injury, broken ribs, a hairline fracture to her pelvis and bruised spleen, kidney and lungs. She was released from the hospital April 25. I hated it, she said of her lengthy hospital stay. While in the hospital, Tracy said her daughter was a perfect patient. She didnt complain once. However, at one point, Megan did flip off her physical therapist at childrens hospital, Tracy recalled. Megan spent her first six weeks at the hospital unconscious. Megan is participating in a research study at Childrens Hospital, Tracy said, and is receiving really good follow-up care. Associated Press Physical therapist Melissa Rentfrow works with Megan Webb, 16, during her rehabilitation program May 13 at Ranken Jordan, a pediatric specialty hospital in Maryland Heights, Mo. The teen from Belleville West High School in Belleville, Ill., is recovering from a traumatic brain injury, which she suffered during a car crash that left her friend dead earlier this year.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J UNE 11, 2013 C3 Communication takes investment of time, effort Q : I am having such a hard time communicating with my dentist. He is a man of very few words. I trust him; however, I wish he would communicate more directly to me rather than through his nurse. Why is it that doctors and dentists have such a hard time communicating with patients? Please print my concerns, as I am sure many people share my feelings. What should I do, short of leaving his office and going elsewhere? Thank you in advance. A: This is a good question, one that I, too, feel many people have on their minds. Lets start with you saying that you trust him. Apparently, he has done something in the past that leads you to say that. People do not generally get the trust of someone unless they have earned it. It seems that through his actions he has earned your trust despite that fact that you have other issues with him. This leads me to another issue that has been in the newspapers lately the changing face of health care. Some doctors and dentists are being forced to spend less time with their patients because of the changes that have taken place in the insurance industry. We are all aware of them. Insurance companies are charging more and giving less. Doctors are being forced to delegate tasks to others so they can see the next patient. Some patients have been in a situation where they feel as though they are in an assembly line. I hear it from many of the new patients in my practice. The personal service is gone, and many people are tired of it. Please remember that even though doctors and dentists are health care providers, they are also running a business. As part of running a business, they have certain obligations to uphold. Some doctors and dentists choose to make ends meet by seeing more patients and accepting a reduced fee. Others have chosen to see fewer patients and charge a higher fee. It may be your dentist falls into the first category. Those of us who chose the second category have the ability to spend more time with each patient and deliver a quality of care that some people value more. We can get to know the patient, what the issues at hand are, and make them feel like a person who has the undivided attention of their health care provider. You have probably heard of a doctor tailoring the care based on a patients health insurance. Some of us have chosen to provide health care based on the patients best interests. That being said it could also be that your dentist simply does not have good communication skills. Dental school teaches students dentistry. Unless your dentist realizes he is lacking in that department, he would not seek out the continuing education courses that could teach him them. As you are aware, communication is so important in life. Whether it is in the office, with your spouse, children or friends, communications can make or break a situation. As for your question of whether to leave him or not that is up to you. If you have tried to communicate to no avail, chances are that is the way it is going to be. As you can see, there is a lot that can go into answering this question. I could go on, but I think you get the gist of it. I hope this helped you. Thank you for the question.

Alcohol abuse can be divided into three main categories: psychological, medical, and social. In most instances, the various problems that occur because of excessive drinking cannot be separated from one another. Alcoholism is rather unique in that it is not only a chronic disease but also a disorder of behavior. The consumption of alcohol differs in different societies. Drinking to the extent that it exceeds the normal social customs of a community will lead one to poor health and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. In addition to the alcohol found commonly in beer, wine and spirits, some of the stronger spirits contain various components that add taste and flavor that could potentially be even more toxic than the alcohol itself. An example is the wood aging that is done with certain alcoholic beverages that expose us to resins that we normally would not consume. Besides the notable problem that alcohol causes to the liver, other organs are affected as well. A high intake of alcohol can raise the risk of broken bones by approximately 20 percent some studies suggest. Patients who suffer from gout can have double the amount of attacks if they exceed a recommended two-drink-a-day limit. Our circulatory system can be adversely affected by alcohol. This includes aggravation of high blood pressure and increased risk of bleeding. We all know a glass or two of wine has been recommended to cut the risk of a blood clot type of stroke, but excessive amounts of alcohol can cause an increased chance of bleeding in the brain, a different type of stroke but equally as devastating. Abnormal or irregular heartbeat can be precipitated by drinking too much. Alcohol is primarily metabolized by the liver, but its effect on the neurologic system and brain can wreak havoc. In the early stages, it can cause drunkenness and blackouts with short-term memory loss. Longterm it can cause premature aging of the brain and dementia. Tremors, shakes, or the jitters are usually a sign of alcohol withdrawal. End-stage damage to the brain can even include hallucinations, which means patients hear and see things that dont really exist. Younger victims can fall prey just as well as older ones and have the added concern of females drinking to excess and causing what is known as fetal alcohol syndrome. All aspects of the babys development can be affected and can result in an abnormal pregnancy and birth. Alcohol, it seems, can trigger many cancers, as well. Women who drink frequently and liberally have about a onethird increased risk of breast cancer compared to light drinkers. Colon and rectal cancers are 25 percent higher in heavy drinkers. It is well established that heavy drinkers have a high incidence of mouth, throat, and esophageal cancers, which are very aggressive and very devastating. Various problems that arise from excessive drinking are very complicated and can do irreparable harm to the individual as well as to friends and family. Unfortunately, in many cases the physical and psychological injury that occurs is difficult, if not impossible to reverse.

are particularly dangerous because they have an effect on the brain, and sudden withdrawal can cause panic attacks and seizures. Do not be ashamed to tell your doctor if you are abusing drugs, or if you are suffering from a condition such as depression, insomnia, or anxiety which might lead you to abuse prescription drugs. Your doctor can help you. Follow your doctors instructions and read the information on prescription labels. Do not combine medications without your doctors or pharmacists supervision. Report any unpleasant side effects, such as constipation, that might discourage you from taking your medication as prescribed. Work together with your doctor to manage your symptoms and use prescription drugs responsibly. Prescription drug addiction can occur when you are prescribed certain medication for a prolonged period, such as pain medication for an injury or after surgery, or medication to relieve anxiety. Prescription drug addiction creeps up on you gradually. Consider this when you start taking a medication more frequently or in larger doses than the doctor prescribed, or when you begin taking, say, pain medication to try to relieve depression, anxiety, or sleeplessness essentially not using medication for its prescribed purpose. You initially develop drug tolerance, meaning that your body no longer responds to the medication in the same way and the doctor must prescribe a stronger dose or a different drug. Gradually, you become physically dependent on the drug and develop a need for it to feel normal; some may have cravings for it. When the effects of the drug wear off, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, shaking, sweating, nervousness, insomnia, aches and pains or vomiting. While tolerance and physical dependence are physical changes in the body, they do not necessarily mean you are addicted. Speak with your doctor, who can help to differentiate. When you no longer need the medication, your doctor will gradually reduce the dosage, giving your body time to adjust. An addict will continue to take drugs even when the consequences are obviously harmful and unpleasant, and is unable to stop even when he or she wants to. Addiction is dangerous. Most addicts find they need stronger and stronger doses of a drug to get the same effects, which can lead to a drug overdose. Many medications are intended for only short-term use and can cause permanent damage to the heart, liver or brain when used for extended periods of time. Since drugs affect perception and impair coordination and judgment, an addict is likely to be injured in a fall, cause a traffic accident or make unwise decisions. Performance at school or work deteriorates. Changes in behavior and personality may drive away friends and family members, as the addict becomes self-absorbed and withdrawn. Drug addiction not only hurts the addict it puts family members in danger. Three types of prescription medications are likely to cause addiction because of how they act on the brain: opioids (hydrocodone, oxycodone and morphine), tranquilizers (benzodiazapines such as sedatives Xanax, Valium) and stimulants (Ritalin, Adderall and Desoxyn). The signs of addiction may vary depending on the type of drug, but they include: Taking higher doses than prescribed Stealing pills from other family members Seeking prescriptions from multiple doctors Continually losing or misplacing prescriptions or medications so that they have to be replaced Appearing to be sedated, euphoric, or unusually energetic and wired up Excessive mood swings or hostility Abnormal changes in sleeping habits Lapses in judgment, inattention, mistakes, injuries and accidents Forgetting appointments, missing important events, being late for work or school Unusual money behaviors, such as not paying bills, borrowing from friends, spending sprees, or using someone elses credit card without asking Stashing pill bottles in multiple locations around the house Secretive and manipulative behavior, telling half-truths, confessing one thing to one family member and telling another story to someone else Withdrawal from family and social relationships Dont ignore the warning signs. If you think you or someone you love might be addicted to prescription drugs, talk to your doctor. Drug addiction is a chronic disease, and the earlier it is treated the better the outcome. Medications are available to treat addiction to pain killers and other medications. Treatment may take place at home or in a rehabilitation facility. For all types of drugs, treatment begins with a period of detoxification. This is typically followed by counseling and behavioral therapy to address underlying emotional and psychological problems that contributed to the addiction. Detoxification should take place under medical supervision because the body could undergo severe and potentially dangerous reactions, including pain, nausea and seizures. The detoxification period is only the beginning of a long process of recovery. Family members must always be vigilant for signs of return to drug use, particularly during times of stress or instability in the addicts life.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, J UNE 11, 2013 C5 A stepwise approach to diagnosing problems D iagnostic modalities can aid in the diagnosis of medical problems, but experience of the treating doctor and the history of and physical examination of the problem are of utmost importance, in my opinion, and should obviously be performed first. The history and nature of the complaint helps the doctor, nurse or other health care professional narrow down the potential causes of the problem. Think of doctors as troubleshooters, of sorts. The more pertinent information given to the doctor regarding the problem is invaluable in my opinion. Think about it. The patient is living with the problem, often knows what caused it, and usually has a good idea of what makes it better or worse. Who better than to tell another about the ailment? I chose my words carefully about information, however. An anecdote about how the Army rejected a recruit for flat feet in 1940 does not aid in the diagnosis of gout today. Time is valuable, and the more directed a visit with the doctor to the problem at hand can be, the better. I put information a patient tells me about their problem into what I call body system baskets. Does the description fit into the vascular or neurologic basket? I weigh the baskets when I am satisfied with the interview to narrow down the possible causes of a problem and then have a better idea of what to order, try, or refer to next. The history and physical examination of a patient and their complaint was the only way to come to a diagnosis before the advances of laboratory testing and radiographs were available. We now have CT, MR and bone scans available, to name a few. These tests should be ordered and performed when necessary, but obviously should not be overutilized due to cost issues, which are a reality of life. I find these test help me when I am either stumped as to what the problem is, when a patient has a difficult time describing the history and presentation of their problem, or when I cannot see pathology I would expect on in-office radiographs. I had two occurrences recently where the symptoms were vague, clouding the history and nature of the cause of the malady. Patients called and relayed what I had suggested was not helping. I relayed to both patients that the options would be either a cortisone injection for treatment or obtaining an MR exam to see what the radiographs could not. One patient opted for the MR, and it was the right choice. The MR showed pathology quite clearly that my physical exam and radiographs could not. Injection of cortisone in this patients case would have been contraindicated. The MR then put us on path to a better chance of resolution of this problem. I had a feeling with the other patient that an injection would be the wrong choice. The feeling I had was from experience doing my job at that point in trying to help the patient. The patient and I were prepared to perform an injection, but something on the last visit told me to lean toward the MR. The MR once again showed an issue where an injection would not have helped, and a different course to help the patient was mapped out. I use advanced testing and labs in trying to help patients. I firmly believe the obtaining of the patients history and that of the patients complaint in addition to the physical exam is the most important part in the medical diagnosis problem. Many issues can be solved on the initial visit, but others cant. Advanced diagnostic testing can be inconvenient, timeconsuming, uncomfortable, expensive and scary. Advanced diagnostic testing greatly aids in the diagnosis of insidious medical pathologies and is available. Try to have an open mind with advanced diagnostic modalities if your doctor finds them necessary. They can help aid in the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems, saving time and morbidity in most cases. David B. Raynor.

It cut down the mortality by 20 percent and that is extremely significant. The American Cancer Society, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and American College of Chest Physicians have recommended CT lung cancer screening. The American Cancer Society has recommended screening for high-risk individuals ages 55 to 74 who have smoked a pack or more of cigarettes a day for 30 years or more, and who are still smoking or who quit less than 15 years ago. Unfortunately, insurance companies are still not covering the CT scan for screening purposes. I hope this changes soon. Meantime, I suggest all smokers who fulfill the above criteria to consider having a CT scan and talk to your doctor. If you have symptoms like cough or shortness of breath, your insurance may cover it anyway. My patient got the CT scan and it showed a lung mass and biopsy showed it as cancer. He hopefully will be cured from this. He had no symptoms of the cancer and if I did not do the scan, the cancer would have grown and very likely, I would have detected it at a later stage. At that time, it might not have been curable. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

I t was the unexpected blossoming of romance as the Art Center Theater players drew us into the beauty of recaptured love. Romance in D was written by James Sherman and directed by Fran Scott, a stalwart 20-year supporter of theater in Citrus County. Performing, directing, singing, Scott does it all with an uncanny ability and a sincerity that shines through each theatrical production. Peter Abrams, as George Fox, portrays a character that relishes being on a combination of Groucho Marx, Woody Allen and Buster Keaton. As he attempts to cheer up his daughter, Isabel, who is in the midst of a divorce, he brings out boxes of movies in the hopes that they will sway her attempts at suicide. With campy remarks such as, Being alone is beneficial, and, The only thing that will fix your situation is a few laughs, and, Youll like Buster Keaton, its silent, he fails miserably. Isabel, played superbly by Kelly Lapp, just wants to be alone. The setting is two adjacent apartments in Chicago, where Charles Norton, portrayed by Howard Christ as an aloof musicologist, is drawn into the drama of Isabels misery, who, as a poet, turns on the gas and puts her head in the oven. Norton, reluctantly at first, comes to her rescue. A yes and no limited conversationalist, Christs portrayal of the Norton character was genuine, as gently and unobtrusively they are drawn to each other in their respective needs. With lines like, Music is the most effective form of communication, and If everyone loved music, the world would be a better place, and as the Norton character gives Isabel a CD and player, we begin to root for the two as the relationship gently unfolds. In the eight scenes of Act I, the interchange of the players is a transformative revelation that is reflective, comedic, gentle and indicative of a directors mission to draw the audience into the plot and leave them with a takeaway thought or two to ponder. Abrams and Chris McMillan, as Helen, the mother of Charles, delighted us with their evolving relationship discussing their son and daughter; Helen popping in with soothing chicken soup, sandwiches, finding they have so much in common. The scene where Emily Dickinsons take on how to be a recluse and the Isabel and Charles Norton characters playing Scrabble in near silence showed star quality brought to fruition by director Scott. Finally, as Isabel shares one of her poems with Charles and he, a Bernstein fan, proclaims there is Humor in Music and her poems last line reads, Come out, come out wherever you are, we begin to feel there is hope for the two. Act II finds the players at their best; Helen making potato pancakes, revealing their innermost needs, in split-second timing. Love bloomed gloriously on the Art Centers stage, and once more the dedicated efforts of the volunteer cast and crew brought joy to a most appreciative audience.

T UESDAY, J UNE 11, 2013 C7 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Gioacchino Rossini, an Italian opera composer who died in 1868, said, One cannot judge Lohengrin from a first hearing, and I certainly do not intend to hear it a second time. At the bridge table, do not judge a deal totally from your first glance; give it a second look to check that you have not missed something. So, have a second slice of toast this morning. South is in four spades. West leads the heart king and continues with the heart queen. How should declarer plan the play? Pre-empts are a pain. Souths sequence shows a very strong four-spade bid, because an immediate four-spade overcall would also be strong. When you intervene over a pre-empt, assume your partner has six or seven points and base your actions appropriately. So, jumping straight to four spades suggests around a working 20-count. This sequence promises more. Here, of course, North couldnt care less! South has nine top tricks: six spades, one diamond and two clubs. At first glance, he needs the club finesse to work. However, there is a second chance diamonds might break 3-3. After ruffing the second heart, declarer should cash the spade ace, then play the diamond ace and another diamond. Suppose East wins and leads a third heart. Declarer ruffs high and plays another diamond. In a moment, South will draw trumps ending with dummys spade 10 and cash the high diamond. But note that if diamonds had split 4-2, the club finesse would still have been available. For more on this deal, tune in tomorrow.

(N) (Live) NewsVideos D ear Annie: My sons estranged wife has reported him to child protective services six times and to the police for various things shes invented over the past three years. Due to her false accusations, he has been arrested three times. He has been found innocent of all charges, but she persists. She charged him with violating a restraining order and appeared in court last week flanked by bodyguards supplied by victim services. This charge was thrown out. My son has never touched her, but she has convinced many people that he is dangerous. She is such a good liar that she actually believes her own stories, which makes her even more convincing. My son has become so paranoid, he barely leaves his house. He is so depressed that he can barely function and is unable to work. She is slowly killing him. Is there anything he can do besides continue to defend himself? The lawyers costs have become a nightmare for our whole family. There must be something more we can do besides waiting for her next dramatic step. Worried Family Members Dear Worried: Your husband may need to go on the offensive. What his ex-wife is doing is harassment, and he should ask his lawyer about suing her. He also can search for a divorce support group in his area or online and get into low-cost therapy for his own well-being. He needs to get his life back. Dear Annie: My dear friends daughter recently married. When she first got engaged, she announced a small wedding, and I offered to make silk flowers. I do this professionally and had most of the supplies. Months later, it turned into a huge event. I also was in the middle of a major move. I agonized over finding the exact color and got frustrated when I needed to do more flowers than I had originally planned. I also had to buy additional supplies because what I had in mind wasnt acceptable to the bride. Since I had moved, I needed to find new suppliers. I spent hours running around and emailing the bride about her specifications. I knew it was going to cost me hundreds more than I planned, so several months before the actual wedding, I opted out of attending. I was newly unemployed and simply could not afford it. But I found the perfect bling that the bride wanted and sent the flowers to her. I never received so much as a thank you. Her last email was, Are you still coming? I refused to answer. Not once did she ask, How are you? So Bridezilla had her day, and now my friend is not speaking to me. Was I wrong not to attend? I told my friend I wasnt coming. The Friend Who Wasnt There Dear Friend: You are never obligated to attend a wedding unless you are a participant. And your flowers were a lovely gift for which the bride should have thanked you and over which she undoubtedly drove you nuts. However, when the bride asked whether you were coming to the wedding, it was rude of you to ignore her email. Perhaps if you apologize first, the friendship can recover. Dear Annie : To Frustrated Daughter-in-Law, whose mother-in-law doesnt get out and do things, has it ever occurred to her to ask her mother-in-law to go with her to these places? I am a widow, and after a lifetime of having someone with you, it is hard to do things by yourself. I prefer having someone I know go with me, but no one wants to be bothered taking me anywhere, so I sit at home. If she would take her mother-in-law to these places, Mom could see how much fun it could be, perhaps make a friend and then take it from there on her own.

He risked decades in jail for the disclosures if the U.S. can extradite him from Hong Kong, where he has taken refuge. Edward Snowden, 29, who said he worked as a contractor at the National Security Agency and the CIA, allowed The Guardianand The Washington Postnewspapers to reveal his identity Sunday. Both papers have published a series of top-secret documents outlining two NSA surveillance programs. One gathers hundreds of millions of U.S. phone records while searching for possible links to known terrorist targets abroad, and the second allows the government to tap into nine U.S. Internet companies to gather all Internet usage to detect suspicious behavior that begins overseas. The revelations have reopened the post-Sept. 11 debate about individual privacy concerns versus heightened measures to protect the U.S. against terrorist attacks. The NSA has asked the Justice Department to conduct a criminal investigation into the leaks. Government lawyers are now in the initial stages of an investigation into the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by an individual Official claims huge, grave damage Edward Snowdenclaims surveillance programs open to abuse.

SIDIBE Staff WriterTwo men are in custody after one of the men reportedly turned his 65-pound pit bull loose on deputies twice as they tried to serve a warrant on Sunday. The men also jammed Deputy Andy Cox in a doorway catching his foot under the door as he tried to enter the residence, according to a report by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Charles Winston McCray, 38, and Dwann D. McCray, 31, Crystal River, are facing charges of aggravated assault/battery on a law enforcement officer. Dwann MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerDr. John Gelins association with Citrus Memorial hospital spans four decades, so he knows a thing or two about doing things the old way. Hes used to jotting down prescriptions and medical tests on forms and telling nurses what so-and-so needs. So when the hospital started moving into the 21st century with paperless technology, he wasnt exactly jumping for joy. This is probably the most radical change in my practice since I started here, said Dr. Gelin, who runs the Citrus Primary Care office in Floral City. Citrus Memorial Health System kicked off its $4.7 million Cerner program on May 1. Every patient-related aspect from admissions to discharge is now computerized. The hospital is virtually paperless. CMHS has the potential to earn back $5 million over five years from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid by meeting a number of objectives in the meaningful use of electronic health-record technology. Cerner and a team of CMHS employees, including Dr. Gelin, spent two months at the start of the year testing the programs in various scenarios to work out the bugs. Then information technology director Tyler Whetstone and other IT specialists MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDr. John Gelin, in his Floral City office, explains how new paperless computer technology is a safer way to practice medicine.

Dunnellon 20170 E. Pennsylvania Ave 352-502-4337 000EPE3 with authorized access, said Nanda Chitre, Justice Department spokeswoman. President Barack Obama said the programs are authorized by Congress and subject to strict supervision of a secret court, and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said they do not target U.S. citizens. But Snowden claims the programs are open to abuse. Any analyst at any time can target anyone. Any selector. Anywhere, Snowden said in a video on theGuardianswebsite. I, sitting at my desk, had the authority to wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president if I had a personal email. Some lawmakers have expressed similar concerns about the wide reach of the surveillance. I expect the government to protect my privacy. It feels like that isnt whats been happening, said Sen. Mark Udall, DColo., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Again, theres a line, but to me, the scale of it and the fact the law was being secretly interpreted has long concerned me, he said Sunday on CNN, adding that at the same time, he abhors leaks. Senate intelligence committee chairman, Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California, contends the surveillance does not infringe on U.S. citizens privacy, and that it helped disrupt a 2009 plot to bomb New York Citys subways and played a role in the case against an American who scouted targets in Mumbai, India, before a deadly terrorist attack there in 2008. Feinstein spoke on ABCs This Week. Clapper decried the revelation of the intelligencegathering programs as reckless and said it has done huge, grave damage. The spokesman for the Director of National Intelligence Shawn Turner said intelligence officials are currently reviewing the damage that has been done by these recent disclosures. The disclosures come as the White House deals with managing fallout from revelations that it secretly seized telephone records of journalists at The Associated Press and Fox News. Snowden said he was a former technical assistant for the CIA and a current employee of defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, which released a statement Sunday confirming he had been a contractor with them in Hawaii for less than three months, and promising to work with investigators. Snowden could face many years in prison for releasing classified information if he is successfully extradited from Hong Kong, according to Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer who represents whistleblowers. Hong Kong, though part of China, is partly autonomous and has a Western-style legal system that is a legacy from the territorys past as a British colony. A U.S.-Hong Kong extradition treaty has worked smoothly in the past. Hong Kong extradited three al-Qaeda suspects to the U.S. in 2003, for example. But the treaty comes with important exceptions. Key provisions allow a request to be rejected if it is deemed to be politically motivated or that the suspect would not receive a fair trial. Beijing may also block an extradition of Chinese nationals from Hong Kong for national security reasons. The government could subject him to a 10 or 20 year penalty for each count, with each document leaked considered a separate charge, Zaid said. Snowden told theGuardiannewspaper he believes the government could try to charge him with treason under the Espionage Act, but Zaid said that would require the government to prove he had intent to betray the United States, whereas he publicly made it clear he did this to spur debate. My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them, Snowden told the Guardian. The government could also make an argument that the NSA leaks have aided the enemy as military prosecutors have claimed against Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, who faces life in prison under military law if convicted for releasing a trove of classified documents through the Wikileaks website. They could say the revelation of the (NSA) programs could instruct people to change tactics, Zaid said. That could add more potential jail time to the punishment. Snowden told the Posthe was not going to hide. Allowing the U.S. government to intimidate its people with threats of retaliation for revealing wrongdoing is contrary to the public interest, he said in the interview published Sunday. Snowden said he would ask for asylum from any countries that believe in free speech and oppose the victimization of global privacy. Snowden told The Guardianhe lacked a high school diploma and served in the U.S. Army until he was discharged because of an injury, and later worked as a security guard with the NSA at a covert facility at the University of Maryland.

Charles bond is $5,000 while Dwanns bond is $15,000. When deputies arrived at the residence with a warrant and a K-9 partner, Cox could hear the man later identified as Dwann McCray yelling and screaming curse words at the officers and threatening to get a gun and start shooting, according to the report. Dwann McCray also made threatening gestures, mimicking the use of a firearm, the report stated. Cox, in his report, said he could hear Dwann McCray instruct a pit bull to get em. Dwann McCray then came out the back door and Cox could see the dog. The deputy drew his weapon at low ready as the dog charged, but the dog was intercepted by another deputy and handed to Charles McCray, who returned it to the house. Now outside, Dwann McCray reportedly continued his yelling and screaming and re-released the dog to go get em, the arrest report states. Deputy Cox re-drew his firearm and pointed it at the dog, which promptly stopped and headed back inside the house. Cox chased after Dwann McCray, who was trying to follow the dog back into the house. Cox said Dwann McCray slammed the door on him, and both McCrays attempted to block his entry. The deputys foot was pinned in the door jam until he was able to break free, damaging his boot in the process, the report stated. The report stated both men then exited the house and were arrested.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

According to troopers, the deputy didnt see Lynch until the last minute. The Ocala Star-Banner reported the stretch of the two-lane Baseline Road near Belleview is dark and unlighted. The speed limit is 55 mph. Lynch was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition to the intensive care unit.OcalaPolice find baby in car, mom inside barPolice said a 22-year-old woman left her month-old baby in a car while she went inside an Ocala bar.

PATFAHERTY Staff writer LECANTO With Citrus Countys bleak budget outlook, the Agricultural Alliance is continuing efforts to keep a positive spotlight on the extension service. The alliance, which maintains an agriculture education and advocacy role, has often addressed extension issues, especially short staffing and an apparent lack of community awareness of the services available. The service is a federal, state and local partnership that receives funding from the state and the county. Maintaining the service and supporting 4-H are alliance priorities. Monday, Joan Bradshaw, director of Citrus County Extension, provided an on update the current 4-H director vacancy. She said the University of Florida will pick up the benefits and pay 10 percent of the salary and the county will pay 90 percent. The position, which is considered UF faculty, will be posted and open for three weeks. This is summer and theres lots going on in 4-H, she said. Bradshaw also reported on plans for the third annual Awesome Ag Day, tentatively set for late July at Lecanto High School. The purpose of the event is to educate children from Citrus YMCA on how food goes from a farm to their dinner table. It will involve 4-H, FFA and related agencies and volunteers. Bradshaw said the extension service is hosting a state review team this week. They will be here three days going over each program looking for strengths and what we need to work on, she said. The dilemma we are in here as a community is how to support and pay for extension, chairman Dale McClellan said, citing the unfilled horticultural agent position. We need to understand how serious this is ... it concerns me we dont have a community thats more vocal about it. Jenette Collins, Citrus County Land Development director, provided an update on the County Road 491 corridor project. It could be a catalyst for development in that area, she said. Regarding the countys location between the Tampa area counties and rural counties to the north, vice chairman Larry Rooks noted the potential for an operation to process biosolids for fertilizer. A plant here or near here would be good for agriculture, he said. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. Ag Alliance: Dont overlook extension service Group is concerned for programs future as county tightens budget belt NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Thank you for your patience; were almost done. Thats the word from the city of Inverness regarding the North Apopka road construction project between Dampier Street and the Withlacoochee State Trail. The $375,000 project, known as Bicycle Boulevard, is designed to give bicyclists a safe connection from the trail to the downtown area. According to Katie Cottrell, the citys public works director, theyve had a few complaints about the road work, such as questioning why couldnt they do one side of the road at a time. As Cottrell explained, its not feasible to do that on such a small road. Its a heavily traveled road, so weve asked people to go very slowly, she said. Most recently, construction crews have been sweeping and inspecting the surface for potholes. In addition to the road resurfacing, the project also includes embedded lanes for bicycle traffic, the addition of a traffic calming median with trees and landscaping, a crosswalk at the state trail and amber lights alerting motorists when someone is at the trail waiting to cross Apopka. Also, the parking area and a walkway at Liberty Park are being redone, changing it from crushed shell and gravel to paved surfaces. Despite the recent rain, the project is on schedule and on budget. Our goal is to have it fully usable and substantially complete by our July 3 patriotic event, Cottrell said, adding that a ribbon-cutting ceremony will most likely be the following week.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleMotorists slowly make their way along Inverness North Apopka Avenue as construction along the busy road keeps the pace of travel slow. City of Inverness seeks patience as it wraps up work on North Apopka Theyre getting there Associated PressSANFORD On the first day of his trial Monday, George Zimmerman got a look at some of the people who might decide whether he committed second-degree murder when he fatally shot 17year-old Trayvon Martin. The first group of 100 potential jurors filled out questionnaires about themselves and their ability to serve on the jury as prosecutors and defense attorneys sought to find six objective members and four alternates. In Florida, 12 jurors are required only for criminal trials involving capital cases, when the death penalty is being considered. By the time the all-day session concluded, attorneys had interviewed four potential jurors, asking them what they had heard about the case on television, in newspapers and on the Internet. A woman in her 50s who watches TV game shows said she believed she could be unbiased even though she knew some basic facts of the case. Another woman in her late 30s who recently moved from Chicago and works in a nursing home, said she only had a passing familiarity with the case mainly images she saw of people wearing T-shirts with Martins face on them. I really dont know anything about the case, said the woman, known as Juror B29. But I believe at the end of the day, you have to listen to both sides. Juror B30, a 65-year-old man with hearing loss, said he recalled Martins parents going public about their concerns over the lack of an immediate arrest last year and more recently testimony over whether voice-recognition experts should be allowed to testify at trial. Zimmerman was present in the jury holding room as his defense attorneys and prosecutors introduced themselves to the potential jurors. The more opportunities for the potential jurors to interact with the defendant, even if the defendant is just sitting there, the better, said Orlando defense attorney David Hill, who has no connection to the case. Jurors have to see him as a human being in the flesh, not a theoretical person accused of a crime. Any possible way they can connect with him is good from the defense point of view. Jury selection begins for trial George Zimmerman charged in killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin Associated PressTALLAHASSEE After years of fierce lobbying, behind-thescenes battles and even protests, Florida on Monday officially designated two of its public universities as preeminent research universities. The Florida Board of Governors, acting on a new state law, gave the designation to two of the states best-known and established schools: the University of Florida and Florida State University. The decision which happened quickly during a Monday conference call not only brings with it prestige but also extra money. State legislators set aside millions for both schools as a reward for the new designation. The idea is that the extra money will help push both UF and FSU to more success. UF wants to be one of the nations top 10 public universities, while FSU would like to elevate its status as well. FSU, which has its main campus in Tallahassee, wants to someday join UF as the only other state university that is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. UF, FSU designated top research universities George Zimmerman Clarification A story on Page 1A of Sundays Chronicle Countys budget cant strip down staffs pay, requires clarification. The $167,000 savings that would result in cutting higher-paid county staff salaries did not include the countys contribution to payroll deductions.

Birthday Some wonderful goals can be met in the coming months, as long as you dont get bogged down by ineffective alliances. Avoid this by, first and foremost, always striving to be your own person. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Watch out for a hotshot salesperson with a dazzling pitch, who will attempt to palm off what is clearly inferior merchandise. Dont let your guard down for one minute. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Much give-and-take might be required between you and your one-and-only. A lack of consideration on your part would do great harm, with wounded feelings resulting. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If a friend who has been kind to you many times in the past is now in need of your support, dont disappear. Its time to step up. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Dont put needless strain on a good friendship by making too many unreasonable demands. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You may operate with great effectiveness in a competitive development, but your accomplishments will mean little if you use tactics that are dishonest or underhanded. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Surprisingly, someone who always endorses your ideas might be diametrically opposed to your way of thinking. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If this should turn out to be a financially trying day, dont further aggravate the situation by yielding to extravagant inclinations. Live within your means. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Normally, you strive to be considerate with everyone you encounter. However, for some reason today, you might put your interests above all others. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Its not like you to fail to display proper gratitude to those who do you special favors, yet that might be the case today. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Owing to an inability to accurately judge anothers character, you could form a relationship with someone who has a questionable reputation. Aries (March 21-April 19) To acquire something you want, you might deliberately step on someones toes. Taurus (April 20-May 20) If you find that companions are not as infatuated with your plans as you are, be prepared to either compromise or go your way alone.TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Tuesday, June 11, the 162nd day of 2013. There are 203 days left in the year. Todays Highlights in History: On June 11, 1963, in one of the most shocking images of the Vietnam War era, a Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc, set himself afire on a Saigon street to protest the government of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem. (The scene was captured in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken by Malcolm Browne of The Associated Press.) On this date: In 1770, Captain James Cook, commander of the British ship Endeavour, discovered the Great Barrier Reef off Australia by running onto it. In 1776, the Continental Congress formed a committee to draft a Declaration of Independence calling for freedom from Britain. In 1962, three prisoners at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay staged an escape, leaving the island on a makeshift raft; they were never found or heard from again. Ten years ago: A suicide bomber killed 16 victims in a Jerusalem bus blast; two Israeli rocket strikes against Hamas fugitives killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza City. Five years ago: President George W. Bush, during a visit to Germany, raised the possibility of a military strike to thwart Tehrans presumed nuclear weapons ambitions. One year ago: Testimony began in the trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, accusing of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. (Sandusky was later convicted and sentenced to at least 30 years in prison.) Todays Birthdays: U.S. Rep. Charles Rangell, D-N.Y., is 83. Actor Gene Wilder is 80. Actress Adrienne Barbeau is 68. Rock musician Frank Beard (ZZ Top) is 64. Thought for Today: A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.

After several years of studying imperiled butterflies, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service believes the Zestos (Epargyreus zestos oberon) and rockland grass (Hesperia meskei pinocayo) skippers are likely extinct. The Zestos skipper was last observed at the Key West Tropical Forest and Botanical Garden on Stock Island in 2004. That butterfly had not been observed on mainland Florida for decades. The rockland grass skipper was last observed at Everglades National Park in 2000, wildlife officials said in a statement. The Zestos skipper wasnt considered imperiled globally because it is found throughout the Bahamas and eastern Antilles. It was only recently discovered that the Zestos skipper in Florida was a distinct subspecies, but it was gone before conservationists could protect it. The rockland grass skipper was also believed extinct in the 1980s until it was briefly rediscovered on Big Pine Key in 1999. But it disappeared again before it could be saved, according to wildlife officials. Butterfly scientists and activists have done extensive surveys in recent years in public conservation lands throughout South Florida and the Keys to determine the status of imperiled butterflies. Several wildlife groups have united to monitor the federally endangered Schaus swallowtail and Miami blue butterflies in the Florida Keys. The Miami blue butterfly was believed extinct after Hurricane Andrew, until a small population was discovered seven years later in a Keys state park. That population has since disappeared, despite a University of Florida breeding program that released 30,000 of the butterflies in the Upper Keys to try to expand its range. Now Miami blues are found only on a remote island within the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuge. Officials attribute declining butterfly populations to diminishing habitats, poaching, insecticides and threats from predators such as fire ants. Wildlife officials say two species extinct led employees through months of training that continues today. Still, physicians, particularly those with years of experience, are complaining the training is too time consuming and the technology too slow. At a recent Citrus Memorial Health Foundation meeting, one physician said some patients are being discharged a day or two later than needed because of new system. Whetstone said the system significantly improves patient care because it cuts down on the potential for errors. He acknowledged some doctors are impatient. Its hard for a lot of these guys to accept the change, Whetstone said. It just takes time. Dr. Gelin, while admitting being intimidated by the new system, has embraced it. Among other things, the Cerner system drastically cuts down on the potential for communication errors between physicians and pharmacists or diagnostic testing. Rather than prescriptions or orders scribbled on a notepad, they are entered by code in the computer. The system will flag drug interactions that could cause problems for the patient. Dr. Gelin has created a template for numerous diagnoses so that he can quickly check off the tests and medications necessary for patients. If you can eliminate medical errors, thats one major advantage, he said. Its cleaner. I dont have to read Dr. Xs writing and he doesnt have to read mine. This is the safe way to practice medicine.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. PROGRAMContinued from Page A1 buried loved ones there are opposed to a mine being developed. They are concerned that the mine will so change the character of the area as to permanently and irrevocably alter the character of the cemetery as a place for peaceful contemplation and family gatherings. Mining zoning cases are heard by a special master instead of the Planning and Development Commission. Special master Katherine R. English recommended the county commission approve the mining request. Brown Dumas III, a trustee with Red Level Cemetery, told the special master last year the trustees are concerned about overall noise, vibration from trucks, drag lines and blasting affecting the headstones that are 150 years old and cant be fixed. One major concern was a rock wall that was very old and maintained for historical benefit. Dumas said he did not like the increased traffic and the effect on wildlife. In addition, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mills, who own adjacent property, expressed concern at the special masters hearing for potential offsite flooding of adjacent wetlands in the southeast corner of the property. Another adjacent resident, Paula Locklear, told English that her family land was homesteaded in 1883. Locklear was concerned with changes surrounding her property as her family has enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. She was concerned that mining haul trucks would use a road only 600 feet from her residence and would raise dust and noise. The applicant, Clark A. Stillwell for Nature Coast Development LLC and Tallahassee Road LLC, is proposing a master mining plan on about 149 acres to establish a limerock mine. The total area proposed to be mined is about 24 acres on the western portion of the site. The property has a future land use designation for extractive uses, which was imposed on it as part of the countys 1989 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. English heard the application April 25, 2012. On May 9, 2013, she recommended the Citrus County Board of County (BOCC) approve the application for a planned development overlay subject to 14 conditions. The application must go through the process because the new mine proposes impact to wetlands and surface waters that must be approved by the BOCC as a planned unit development and the new mine within an extractive district proposes an office building having less than the required setback from the abutting industrial property at the site of the entrance. Board members will be asked to allow the development. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com.

Associated PressHONG KONG By holing up in Hong Kong, the American defense contractor who says he leaked information on classified U.S. surveillance programs has found an unlikely refuge from extradition. It might be temporary, however. Hong Kongs protection of Edward Snowden is not a given. As a former British colony, the territory has a well-established, Westernstyle legal system. It is home to a boisterous media and outspoken public that ardently defend their rights to expression. And though a semi-autonomous part of China, it ultimately answers to Beijing, which is often at odds with Washington. That combination of sturdy legal institutions and strong political backing made Hong Kong an attractive place to take shelter, said Guardianjournalist Glenn Greenwald, whose reports last week that exposed widespread U.S. government programs to collect telephone and Internet records were based on information from Snowden. There were no good options for him, so it just became a question of weight of all the various factors, Greenwald said in Hong Kong on Monday. There were probably other places that were more democratic but that would be more likely to hand him over to the United States because they wouldnt want to resist the pressure that the United States would undoubtedly apply to get him. However, the U.S. is one of the largest investors in Hong Kong, a major business center for East Asia. The U.S. and Hong Kong also have an extradition treaty and routinely cooperate on requests to transfer criminals; in one high-profile case, Hong Kong extradited three alQaeda suspects to the U.S. in 2003. While Beijing at times stands up to Washington, it may not want to for Snowden. Beijing has often criticized foreign governments for harboring critics of its Communist government. China also is seeking U.S. cooperation on retrieving corrupt Chinese officials who have fled to America, often with sizeable assets. Cyberhacking and cyberespionage have emerged as the newest friction in relations that Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping pledged over the weekend to improve. I cant imagine that after all this effort, theyre going to let this one thing make a mess of it, said David Zweig, an expert on Chinese politics at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Still, the extradition treaty gives Hong Kong ways to say no. The U.S. and Hong Kong concluded the treaty with Beijings blessing on the eve of the territorys hand back from Britain to China in 1997. Provisions allow one side to refuse a request if its deemed to be politically motivated or if the suspect is unlikely to receive a fair trial. Beijing may also have a veto. The treaty allows Beijing to refuse to extradite a Chinese national for reasons of national security. A study by the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1997 suggests Beijing may have wider discretion to prohibit any extradition, not just of Chinese nationals, on national security grounds.

NSA leaker could be latest to seek help in Iceland Associated PressREYKJAVIK, Iceland From seafaring Vikings to digital dissenters, Iceland has always attracted outsiders. This North Atlantic island nation has welcomed eccentric chess master Bobby Fischer, WikiLeaks secretspiller Julian Assange and the online freedom advocates of the Pirate Party. Could its next guest be Edward Snowden, the American intelligence contractor who leaked secrets from the National Security Agency? In an interview published Sunday outing himself as the source behind stories about the U.S. spy agencys online surveillance programs, Snowden floated the idea of heading to Reykjavik. He told The Guardiannewspaper he was inclined to seek asylum in a country that shared his values and the nation that most encompasses this is Iceland. That has left many in this tiny seafaring nation, population 320,000, flattered, if bemused. I think it would be great for (Snowden) to come to Iceland, Bjorn Sigurdarson, an executive at the University of Iceland, said Monday. The actions by the U.S. government are disturbing and if we could protect him here, we should. But its a little funny how our tiny country is in the news about this. Iceland may be a global minnow, but it has a tradition of providing a haven for the outspoken and the outcast. Descendants of Viking settlers in a country that for centuries made its living from the sea, Icelanders have never lacked confidence. The country has produced global figures from genre-bending musicians such as Bjork to the credit-fueled capitalists who snapped up businesses around the world before Icelands economy collapsed in 2008. Facing a harsh environment prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and deep freezes has forged a hardy nation unafraid to go its own way and stand up to bigger countries. Iceland has faced off against Britain over fishing rights in the Cod Wars of the 1970s and continues to hunt whales in the face of wide international opposition. In 2005, the chess-loving country risked the anger of the United States by offering citizenship to Fischer, who was wanted in the U.S. on charges of breaking international sanctions against the former Yugoslavia by playing a chess match there in 1992. Fischer lived in Iceland until his death in 2008. More recently, Iceland stood up to strong pressure from the British and Dutch governments during the 2008 financial crisis, when it refused to reimburse those countries citizens who lost money in an Icelandic savings bank that went bankrupt. The country also was an early base for the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. Icelands Pirate Party, founded on a program of direct democracy, digital innovation and media freedom, won three of the 63 seats in Icelands parliament, the Althingi, in Aprils national election. Its members are pushing Icelandic authorities to extend a hand to Snowden, who revealed his identity Sunday from a hotel in Hong Kong. We have called in our lawyers and are ready to assist him if he comes to Iceland, said Smari McCarthy, a Pirate Party member and founder of the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, a group campaigning to give Iceland even stronger freedom of speech protections. He said the group was planning to meet with the interior minister to discuss a possible asylum request for Snowden. Icelandic Interior Ministry spokesman Johannes Tomasson, however, said the government has not had contact with the 29-year-old American. We have not received any application, and so his idea of maybe seeking asylum here is for us just speculation, he said. To apply for asylum, Snowden must be on Icelandic soil. His current whereabouts are unknown. Edward Snowdenintelligence contractor.

TUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013 A7 Apple revamps look of iPhone, iPad softwareSAN FRANCISCO Apple is throwing out most of the real-world graphical cues from its iPhone and iPad software, like the casinogreen felt of its Game Center app, in what it calls the biggest update since the iPhones launch in 2007. The new operating system, called iOS 7, strives for a clean, simple, translucent look. Apple is redesigning all its applications and icons to conform to the new look, driven by long-time hardware design chief Jony Ive. Apple demonstrated the new software at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday. The new design direction was widely expected and will show up on iPhones, iPad and iPod Touches this fall, the company said.Obama nominates Furman as top economic adviserWASHINGTON President Barack Obama has nominated Jason Furman, a veteran White House economic official, as chairman of the presidents Council of Economic Advisers. Obama called Furman, 42, one of the most brilliant economic minds of his generation. He said Furman never forgets hes fighting for the middle class and those who aspire to join it. If confirmed by the Senate, Furman would replace Alan Krueger, who is returning to his former post as a professor at Princeton University.American, US Airways name post-merger leadershipDALLAS The new American Airlines will have more top executives from smaller but more successful US Airways than from the current American. Five US Airways executives will follow their current CEO, Doug Parker, when he takes control after the airlines complete their proposed merger. Three executives from American parent AMR Corp. were named to the new companys leadership team. AMR and US Airways Group Inc. hope to complete their proposed merger this summer. The deal still needs approval by U.S. antitrust regulators and AMRs bankruptcy creditors.McDonalds says cheap eats helped lift salesNEW YORK Cheap eats and new menu items helped McDonalds boost a key sales figure in May, bouncing back from a decline the previous month. The worlds biggest hamburger chain said Monday that global sales rose 2.6 percent at restaurants open at least a year, helped by an extra Friday in the month. In the U.S., the figure rose 2.4 percent, as the Dollar Menu and its new chicken wraps and egg white breakfast sandwiches lifted results. In Europe, the figure rose 2 percent, as declines in Germany and France were offset by strong results in the United Kingdom and Russia.Microsoft hypes next-gen Xbox One games at E3LOS ANGELES Microsoft has its head in the cloud with Xbox One. The company focused on how cloud computing will make games for its next-generation Xbox One console more immersive during its Monday presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the gaming industrys annual trade show. Microsoft announced last week that the successor to the Xbox 360 must be connected to the Internet every 24 hours to operate, and the system would ideally always be online. The upcoming consoles cloud computing capabilities were demonstrated by fleshing out dense environments in third-person openworld games like the zombie-fighting sequel Dead Rising 3 and cartoony shooter Sunset Overdrive. The racing simulator Forza MotorSport 5 introduced a feature called drivatar, which mimics players driving styles and allows their drivatars to play for them offline.Travelers to buy Canadian insurer for about $1.1 billionNEW YORK Property and casualty insurer The Travelers Cos. will spend about $1.1 billion in cash to buy The Dominion of Canada General Insurance Co. and strengthen its reach north of the U.S. border.

Travelers will use debt and possibly preferred stock to help pay for the deal.

But investors just yawned. Stocks budged higher when trading opened, shortly after the S&P agency raised its outlook for the U.S. governments debt rating and credited the strengths of the economy. But the gains proved both modest and fickle, and the market spent most of the day flitting between small gains and losses. At days end, the Dow Jones industrial average and the S&P 500 were lower, but just barely. The Nasdaq composite was slightly higher. It was a marked change from Friday, when the Dow jumped 207 points after a jobs report that investors viewed as positive. Trading volume was light, and there were no major economic reports or company announcements. The 10 industry sectors in the S&P were split down the middle, with half rising and half falling, but none moved dramatically. The best performer, telecommunications, was up 0.8 percent. The worst, consumer discretionary, was down 0.3 percent. Booz Allen Hamilton slid after a company employee said he had leaked information about secret government surveillance programs. The consulting companys stock dropped 46 cents, or 2.6 percent, to $17.54. The S&Ps statement harkened back to August 2011, when the agency slashed its rating of the U.S. governments debt because Congress was in a heated battle over whether to raise government spending limits. The downgrade, an embarrassment to the United States, also sent the stock market into a tailspin. The Dow plunged 634 points, or more than 5 percent, on the first trading day after the downgrade. The market had triple-digit swings throughout that fall. On Monday, S&P upgraded its outlook on the U.S. debt rating to Stable from Negative. That doesnt restore the U.S. governments top-shelf credit rating, but it does mean that S&P is unlikely to cut the rating again in the near future. S&P cited the Federal Reserves willingness to keep interest rates low, which is meant to spur borrowing and spending, and its bond purchasing program, which is meant to encourage investors to buy stocks and other riskier assets. S&P also noted approvingly that Congress had agreed to raise some taxes this year, notably the Social Security tax that most workers pay, which has helped shrink the governments budget deficit.

Thanks again for all who made a donation, on behalf of the members of Xi Epsilon Chi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, Inverness.Flo HaywardDont cast stonesIs anyone else sick and tired of the phony Republican outrage over each and every action taken (or not taken) by the Obama administration? First, let me say that Benghazi, the IRS actions and the Associated Press issues are important and we the people have a right to know if any crime was committed. Unless and until such allegations can be proven, however, can Republicans please remember they are living in a glass house themselves? Benghazi? Four Americans died during this attack and that is terrible. Keep in mind, however, that more than 12 Americans died during attacks on our embassies, consulates and other government buildings during the prior administration. Most of these attacks were outside of Iraq and Afghanistan and, therefore, cannot be dismissed as a hazard of a war zone. And, how many thousands of young Americans died and continue to die because the prior administration altered intelligence information and outright lied about WMDs just so they could justify invasion of Iraq? So, why are Republicans now demonstrating a lynchmob mentality? Since the Secretary of State in charge during the Benghazi attack is currently a hands-down leader in the 2016 presidential race, I cant help but wonder if this outrage is more political in nature than it is in finding the truth. The IRS? Doesnt anyone remember Nixons enemies list? Or the IRS investigation into the NAACP during the Bush years? The Associated Press? If there indeed is no legal justification for this, heads should roll. Freedom of the press should not be jeopardized. By all means investigate all these issues, but please spare us the Republican dog-andpony show. Hopefully, their minds are not so closed that an honest attempt to find the truth can be accomplished.Evlyn Skurow Crystal River For decades, Florida has been recognized for its clear springs, attracting millions of visitors from across the world to view and swim in the refreshing waters on a sunny day. At the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the states Water Management Districts, we recognize that we cant take our precious springs for granted. Thats why we have been busy implementing the three Rs of environmental protection: Research, Regulation and Restoration, all leading to the most important R: Results. Water Management Districts set minimum flows by rule for the amount of water in springs needed to protect the environment. These minimum flows are based on extensive science and are often peer-reviewed by independent scientists. While there have been only 22 minimum flows set for springs since the legislature established the requirement in 1972, the Water Management Districts under Gov. Scott are on track to set 49 additional minimum flows and levels for springs before the end of 2014, more than doubling efforts of the past two decades. The minimum flows will result in a recovery plan to restore spring flows. These recovery plans can address the approximately 5 to 10 percent decline in spring flows that appear to be caused by withdrawals, rather than drought. As part of a comprehensive approach to improving our springs, simultaneously the DEP continues to develop restoration plans for reversing pollution. The DEP adopts plans that identify the projects, financial resources and schedules necessary to restore springs that contain excessive pollution. By the end of 2014, the DEP will have adopted restoration plans expected to benefit more than 250 springs boosted further by the $10 million investment in springs projects approved by Gov. Scott and the Florida Legislature for this fiscal year. These restoration plans are also based on the best available science and undergo rigorous analysis and community input, providing a vigorous one-two punch of research and regulation for springs. In addition, the DEP seeks conservation land purchases with a focus on protecting springs and improving water quality and quantity. As part of that effort, the governor and cabinet in March approved two major land purchases to benefit springs. A 690-acre portion of land around Wakulla Springs and a 599-acre property on the Suwannee River will help protect surrounding springs. Gov. Scott this month approved $70 million for Florida Forever conservation land purchases, and the DEP will focus a significant portion of this budget on springs protection. The Water Management Districts have committed to spending nearly $11 million this year for springs protection and restoration activities, while the DEP, with support from the Florida Legislature, has more than doubled the amount spent on springs over the previous three fiscal years combined. The DEP has also taken on the task of turning Silver Springs attraction, a longstanding theme park, into a state park. Onsite buildings will be renovated this year, while scientifically sound nutrient reduction projects are implemented. This decision was made only after extensive public debate. The DEP and Water Management Districts are addressing problems caused by withdrawals by setting minimum flows, necessary recovery plans, and establishing water quality standards and action plans for springs. Collectively, the DEP and the Water Management Districts share a sense of urgency about our springs never shown before and are constantly working to protect and preserve these Florida icons.Greg Munson is the DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration.

Last year, the county billed Duke for $36 million in property taxes, but the utility claimed the appraised value of its property was too high, and refused to pay the full bill, sending the county only $19 million as a good faith payment and challenging the rest of the tax bill in court. This led county Property Appraiser Geoff Greene to commission a $330,000 outside appraisal of the utilitys assets in the county. This appraisal concluded Dukes property has been significantly undervalued because of the utilitys method for calculating the value of property, which is generally the original cost of the property minus depreciation. The appraisal company said this approach does not reflect the actual current value of the property. The new appraisal puts the value of Dukes Citrus County properties at almost $3.7 billion, which at current millage rates would generate a tax bill of more than $54 million. With the suit brought by Duke last year regarding its 2012 tax assessment and the much higher assessment generated by the new appraisal, the stage is set for ongoing litigation that will likely continue for at least a couple of more years unless some settlement is reached in the meantime. The dollars separating what Duke claims it owes and what the county believes it owes are significant, and for the utility, the cost of litigation is just another cost of doing business one that ultimately goes into the rates customers pay. As a consequence, continued litigation seems likely. This is a bad situation, but it is one created by the regulations under which utilities operate. These regulations will allow Duke to recover from its customers about $1.7 billion for the shuttered nuclear plan expenses beginning in 2017, even though the plant will never generate another kilowatt of electricity. This fact made the decision to close the plant much less painful for the company, since customers will pick up most of the tab. We would much prefer for Duke and the county to reach an amicable resolution and for us to move forward without more litigation, but given the chasm separating the two, this does not appear likely. The most likely outcome is continuing litigation until there is a final judicial order saying who is right and who is wrong in the dispute. This cannot come soon enough. THE ISSUE:New appraisal boosts Dukes taxable value.OUR OPINION:Duke/county battle likely to continue.

Discount niceIm calling to say thank you for the nice surprise I received today. I was having lunch at the Hen House and I received my bill and on my bill there was a star and because of that star, I was given a nice discount on my lunch and Id like to say thank you very much to Kim, the owner of the Hen House, and to all her staff. All of her waitresses are the nicest people youd ever want to meet and when youre a widow living on a fixed income, every little bit helps. Thank you again, Kim, and thank you to all the waitresses at the Hen House. Use common senseIn response to the editors note about making left turns at Meadowcrest off (U.S.) 19: Yellow light is most welcome. We need your note on flashing yellow lights in big headlines for the young and others to see. It seems that most of them dont realize what a flashing yellow light means. So you not only need to know the traffic rules, but use some common sense in driving.Restored faithI just read the article about Surprise to honor fallen hero in this mornings newspaper (May 31) about the restoration of Sgt. Robert Surbers truck that is being restored so his sister can use it when she gets out of basic training. I think it s fab ulous. It restored my faith in people around this area and even though Im a guy, it brought tears to my eyes. Thank God there are people like that still here. I want to give all of you a great big thanks. God bless you.Wasted dollarsI still would like to know why the hospital wasnt put up for sale before we spent $3 million or $4 million of the taxpayers money and giving it to lawyers.Needed helpA few months ago in your column, someone was upset about an eyesore home and yard on their street. Just a thought: Maybe that person was having a problem, you know, having a financial problem and they could have used your help with their grass and etc., instead of your criticism.Our mistake This is Friday, May 31, and Im reading in the Scene in the paper, A brief history of the Citrus County Cruisers. I would like to congratulate Ken McNally for writing the article and I am a member of the club. But Ive got to say, if youre going to be in charge of the Car Corner, you really need to learn the difference between a 1955 Chevrolet and the 1957 Chevrolet theyre showing the picture of. I love them both, but he made a mistake.Editors note:The mistake was the Chronicles. Ken had it correct in the original.Road repair drags Im wondering how much longer we must endure the snails pace repair on a twoblock stretch of North Apopka Avenue. Totally ridiculous potholes. Its unbelie vable. How much longer before its repaired? Are they going to take another two or three months just with one or two people looking at it every day.Lower taxesWhen politicians increase taxes for Duke Energy, the people will end up paying higher rates. What we really need is lower taxes and smaller government. Realistic blamingWhy is the liberal tendency to blame every hitch in societys collective gallop on someone or something other than the actual offender? Guns cause crime. Freedom causes terrorism. Wealthy people cause poverty. SUVs cause bad weather. Junk food causes Michael Moores waistline. And criticizing those who hold the aforementioned nonsense to be true is racist. Following the Newtown, Conn., massacre, liberals decried gun ownership and the National Rifle Association for its purported role in the horror and demanded draconian infringements on the Bill of Rights. Oddly, the millions of legal gun owners nationwide were uninvolved in the Newtown massacre but passing useless laws (like the ones Connecticut already had) restricting lawabiding Americans rights and blaming guns while counterproductive was dramatically easier. After all, blaming guns for the violence that has turned cities like Chicago and Detroit into gladiatorial arenas is unlikely to cost the Democrat Party the support of the gladiators. Thats dishonest, and dishonesty is easy. As the civilized world reeled in horror at the savage brutality of the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby, our leftleaning friends raced to reassure us that Muslims present no danger. Even as the Woolwich murder shook our collective sense of security, the socialist paradise of Sweden was rocked by anti-integration riots perpetrated not by xenophobic red-state types nor even by racist Republicans, but Muslim immigrants. President Obama, who declared to the United Nations in the wake of the Benghazi massacre that the future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam, recently delivered another speech that condemned terror without acknowledging the religious identity proudly crowed by both the Woolwich butchers and the Stockholm rioters. While our president takes pains to avoid insulting the prophet of Islam some Democrats following the Boston Marathon attacks offered wishes that the perpetrators would be white Americans. This is denial, and denial is easy. Can it be that Islam and terrorism share a direct causal relationship? It seems to me that liberals tend to worry more about hurting the delicate feelings of Tawhal, Dariq and Hassan than they do about reporting the identity and motivation of those who seek to murder Tom, Dick and Harry. We live in a nation that not only tolerates the blatant religious hatred proclaimed by Islam extremists like the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Nation of Islam, but offers those hate-mongers constitutional protections. Thats ignorance, and ignorance is easy. The list of similar hypocrisies goes on. Liberals despising rich people at least, rich people who dont host fundraisers for Obama. To the left, wealth is a zero-sum concept. If, say, George Soros has billions of dollars, then someone in Oakland, Calif., must be living in squalor. Soros does have billions of dollars, and theres no shortage of squalor in Oakland. But the latter has nothing to do with the former. And villainizing Soros isnt going to remove squalor from Oakland. Theres nothing wrong with envying those who are better off, as long as that envy inspires you to improve your surroundings and not degrade theirs. Thats greed, and greed is easy. Its human nature to seek the simplest answers. Fundamentally, the simplest explanations are likely the correct ones. The solutions to most of the problems we face as a nation are, in fact, quite simple. Blame criminals for crime. Blame terrorists for terrorism. Blame the culture of envy for the rise of poverty. Blame the responsible parties for the problems they create. That might not be easy, but it is simple.Gerard Del Vecchio HernandoFed upInglis, Citrus Countys neighbor across the barge canal bridge, is a small town of about four square miles, bordering the lower Withlacoochee River. The focal point of the citys commercial activity is the intersection of State Road 40 with U.S. 19. The city had an evolutionary election back in March. Big changes were resoundingly voted in for a town of more than 1,600 with a registered voter roll of over 900 citizens. Seven town charter amendments and the election of one incumbent and two newcomers to the town council put a new face on local politics. Of more than 400 voters polling that day, 58 percent said yes to change, across the ballot. The election results were altered when a member of the opposition, Gordon Fulwood, brought suit to reverse the seven amendments. In two hearings, a judge ruled two amendments did not meet the requirements of Florida law or administrative code. The opposition was represented by council who prepared a wellresearched brief and presented same in a forthright argument. The lame-duck council instructed the city attorney not to take any action whatsoever. He did as instructed and told the judge why. She masterfully kept a straight face. Fulwood can be thanked for his efforts because the nullification has had a more positive effect than negative on what the change advocates hope to accomplish. That doesnt mean that change will come easy, but it will come. Inglis is the last incorporated town of its size in our area to maintain a municipal police and fire department. Its best management practices didnt make it out of the last century. Repeatedly, its CPA firm, auditing under state mandate, has warned the city that its controls and overall financial management procedures were not adequate. Glaring proof of that came with the arrest of the towns accounts payable clerk who for several years added herself to the official vendors list and was able to steal more than $20,000. The Inglis Police Department patrols an area approximately two miles by two miles. The police chief gave the March 2013 activity report to the city council liaison, Commissioner Andrew White, from which he reported, including the following: The department logged 4,524 miles, with a total time worked of 836 man hours 26.97 man hours per day for 31 days. Eight arrests were made, two of which were felonies. 195 calls were answered and 469 security checks made. No distinction is made as to drive-bys, door rattles, stakeouts, etc. You can do the probable math on the miles driven/gas consumed, alone. No wonder the new town council voted to rescind the policy of officers driving their patrol cars out of the town while off duty. Recently, one of the towns firefighters, who is on a popular social media site, was ratted out by an anonymous source. Demonstrating his professional mindset by example was a picture of him and another male mooning the camera, and more than a half dozen, foolish, suggestive and vulgar other photos. He blamed someone else for tagging the mug uh moon shot. In summary, true change is not always good. However, this is the United States of America. When voters decide, subterfuge, whining, libel, threats hollow or real, or intimidation are not going to change the results. If you dont like the way your local politics are going, get out and campaign for change. Do it with honor and real sincerity. The rest of us are fed up with anger, malice, revenge and cowardice.Steve Kesterson Sr. InglisOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013 A9 000F6R9 Are you tired of getting a cheap come on price, only to be told that your hearing loss is too bad for the sale priced hearing aid to work?

Authorities said 10 elderly women escaped unharmed when the limousine they were in burst into flames while idling in Northern California. The Sunday morning fire in Walnut Creek comes a little more than a month after five nurses were killed while trapped inside a burning limousine on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. Fire officials said they were called to a gated community in Walnut Creek around 11:35 a.m. Sunday for a vehicle fire and quickly put out the burning 2009 Lincoln Town Car. Many of the women are in their 90s. They were apparently headed to Sonoma to celebrate a friends 96th birthday.Son, 4, fatally shoots fatherPRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. Police in an Arizona town are piecing together the death of a man who was shot by his 4-year-old son. Authorities said Fridays shooting in Prescott Valley of 35-year-old Justin Stanfield Thomas appeared to be a tragic accident. Police said Thomas and his son had traveled from Phoenix to a friends home in Prescott Valley for a surprise visit when the boy found a loaded gun, asked a question about it and pulled the trigger. Prescott Valley police Sgt. Brandon Bonney said Monday that investigators are trying to determine whether the tenant had a reasonable amount of time to secure the weapon. No children lived in the house. Firearms experts say owning weapons carries a certain responsibility and that young children should be taught to avoid handling them.School boasts 24 sets of twinsWILMETTE, Ill. A Chicago-area middle school is hoping to claim the world record for the most sets of twins in one grade. Highcrest Middle School in Wilmette has 24 sets of twins in fifth grade. Thats about 10 percent of the class, which has about 475 students. One set of twins is leading the effort to receive Guinness World Records recognition. School officials said Guinness required documentation and birth certificates. The students are awaiting confirmation, which could take several weeks. Three schools currently share the record with 16 pairs of twins in one grade. They are Valley Southwoods Freshman High School in West Des Moines, Iowa; Staples High School in Westport, Conn.; and Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Ill. Federal statistics show about 33 twins per 1,000 births in 2010.

Afghan Taliban attack NATO HQKABUL, Afghanistan Seven Taliban fighters with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns launched a rare assault on NATOs operational headquarters at the military section of Kabuls international airport on Monday. All seven militants were killed. Gunfire and explosions from the pre-dawn battle could be heard in many parts of Kabul. No one was killed except the attackers.

Attackers initially targeted market-goers early in the morning, then turned their sights on police and army posts after sunset. Mondays deadliest single attack hit Diyala province when three parked car bombs exploded virtually simultaneously around a wholesale fruit and vegetable market at the height of business in the town of Jidaidat al-Shatt. The town is just outside the provincial capital of Baqouba, about 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. The blasts killed 15 people and wounded 46. Shortly after midday, another car bomb went off near a fish market in the northern Baghdad suburb of Taji, killing seven shoppers and wounding 25, police said. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressBERLIN The swollen Elbe River breached another levee early Monday on its relentless march toward the North Sea, forcing German authorities to evacuate 10 villages and shut down one of the countrys main railway routes. As the surge from the Elbe pushed into rural eastern Germany, there was some relief further upstream as the river slipped back from record levels in Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt state. To the south, the Danube hit a record high Sunday evening in the Hungarian capital, Budapest, then began to ease back Monday. Officials said the city escaped significant damage, and Prime Minister Viktor Orban said soldiers and rescue workers would shift their focus further south. Weeks of heavy rain this spring have sent the Elbe, the Danube and other rivers such as the Vltava and the Saale overflowing their banks, causing extensive damage in central and southern Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. At least 22 flood-related deaths have been reported. The German city of Magdeburg grappled over the weekend with water levels more than 16 feet above normal, but the Elbe retreated by about a foot on Monday. More than 23,000 residents had to leave their homes on Sunday. Officials said an electricity substation in the city was no longer in danger of flooding which would have made the situation worse by cutting off power to the drainage pumps. Further downstream, a levee at Fischbeck, west of Berlin, was breached overnight, prompting officials to evacuate 10 villages in the area. Germanys national railway said it had to close a bridge near Fischbeck that is used by trains linking Berlin to Cologne, Frankfurt and Amsterdam. Some trains were being diverted via other bridges to the north and south, causing significant delays, and others were canceled. The low-lying old district of Lauenburg, a riverside town east of Hamburg, was evacuated as authorities prepared for floodwaters to peak there later this week. Soldiers and volunteers have worked frantically over the past week to fill sandbags and reinforce flood defenses across central Europe. Even with all those efforts, we should accept that we humans should be humble, that even in the 21st century we dont completely control nature that is one lesson from this situation, SaxonyAnhalts interior minister, Holger Stahlknecht, told ZDF television. In Budapest, the Danube peaked late Sunday about a foot above the previous record, set in 2006. River levels across the Czech Republic were falling Monday, although thunderstorms during the night caused some local flash floods. The national police chief, Martin Stovicek, said the countrys death toll reached 11 after a Slovak man drowned in a river near the southwestern town of Susice.

Swollen Elbe River breaches new levee Ten villages evacuated in Germany; death toll reaches 11 in Czech Republic Associated PressNational Intelligence Director James Clapper prepares to testify April 18 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. When the federal government went looking for phone numbers tied to terrorists, it grabbed the records of just about everyone in America. Why every phone number? Well, you have to start someplace, Clapper told NBC News on Monday. Associated PressWASHINGTONWhen the federal government went looking for phone numbers tied to terrorists, it grabbed the records of just about everyone in America. Why every phone number? Well, you have to start someplace, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told NBC News on Monday. That breadth, that willingness to sweep up enormous information on Americans with no ties to terrorists, is making it hard for the Obama administration to tamp down controversy over a separate program, called PRISM, to monitor Internet traffic. In short, critics ask, if looking for terrorists means collecting every Americans phone records, how can anyone believe the president when he says Americans arent being monitored on the Internet? The Internet program came to light last week in documents published by The Washington Postand Guardiannewspapers. It allows the NSA to reach into the data streams of U.S. companies and grab emails, video chats, pictures and more. Just how much the government seizes is unclear. Clapper says it is narrowly focused on foreign targets, and technology companies say they turn over only information thats required by court order. But after reading a leaked court document last week that allowed NSA to sweep up millions of American phone records, Trevor Timm of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said, The question is how broad the orders are theyre giving these companies. PRISM was born late in George W. Bushs administration, but its bloodline can be traced to the frenzied aftermath of 9/11. It used to be that, when the federal government wanted to read a foreigners Yahoo or Microsoft emails, it needed a judges approval. After the attacks, Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to get to skip that oversight and read U.S.-based email accounts in real time. When the New York Timesrevealed the existence of that program, the Bush administration appealed to Congress, saying court approval was too arduous. There were too many emails to monitor. Getting warrants for each one took too long. Sometimes, the government would sweep up Americans emails, but not intentionally. As a matter of due course, if youre targeting something foreign, you could inadvertently intercept an American, said Michael McConnell, the director of national intelligence at the time. Congress agreed. No more warrants. With that, PRISM was born. Now, the government needs only explain to Congress and a secret court exactly how it intends to collect information like emails, Skype video conferences and Facebook messages. Once the court approves the collection rules, the government can grab anything it wants. Judging from the documents released by the Postand Guardian, PRISM takes a lot of data and quickly. An NSA document said PRISM was the eavesdropping program used most by the agency. The law says the government must limit its surveillance to people reasonably believed to belocated outside the United States. But everything hinges words such as targeting and collecting, which have unique meanings in the spy world. As the classified court order released last week shows, officials can grab phone logs from everybody and still say they havent targeted or collected information on a single American. Only when an analyst reaches into the archives and looks at the information has something been collected. Clapper uses a library analogy: The government can fill its shelves with books containing the phone numbers of Americans, who theyre talking to, how long they talk and where they call from. That doesnt count as collection. To me, collection of U.S. persons data would mean taking the books off the shelf, opening it up and reading it, he said. To which Timm replied: Clapper has a different definition of collect than most human beings. Born of post-9/11 fervor, domestic spy program casts wide net The law says the government must limit its surveillance to people reasonably believed to be located outside the U.S. But everything hinges words such as targeting and collecting, which have unique meanings in the spy world.

Basketball/B2 Hockey/B2 Baseball/ B2 Sports briefs/ B3 Scoreboard/B3 Golf/B4 Section BTUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE SPORTS BRIEFSRear slap gets Johnson 30 days in jailFORT LAUDERDALE Former NFL star Chad Johnson was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail for a probation violation in a domestic violence case by a judge who angrily rejected a no-jail plea deal after Johnson playfully slapped his attorney on the backside in court. Johnson had reached a deal with prosecutors calling for community service and counseling instead of jail. Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh said she would tack on an additional three months probation because Johnson had failed to meet with his probation officer during three previous months. It was all set until Johnson, when asked by McHugh if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear as football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and at that McHugh said she wouldnt accept the deal. I dont know that youre taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this? McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. The whole courtroom was laughing. Im not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isnt a joke. Johnson, 35, tried to apologize and insisted he meant no disrespect. Johnson was on probation after pleading no contest to head-butting his then-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada, during an altercation last August. This is your courtroom. I have no intent to make this a joke. Its not funny, Johnson told the judge. My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face. But McHugh, who could have given Johnson up to a year in jail, was not moved. Johnson then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail. Swickle declined comment on whether he would ask the judge to reduce her sentence.Fan freed in Auburn tree-poisoning caseOPELIKA, Ala. The University of Alabama fan who poisoned Auburn Universitys landmark oak trees at Toomers Corner has been released from jail and cleared to leave the state.

He wants to go back to Louisiana and never wants to be heard from ever again, Stanley said. Updyke also was arrested last September, accused of making a threatening remark to workers at a Lowes store in Hammond, La. Updyke pleaded guilty in March to one count of unlawful damage of an animal or crop facility. He was sentenced to 6 months in jail and credited with 104 days for time already served.

The most popular equipment Merion was not a golf club but a squeegee. More heavy rain at the U.S. Open flooded a bunker by the 11th green and filled fairways with large puddles and tiny stream. The course was closed for four hours during the first full day of practice, and then shut down for good later in the afternoon. Brandt Jobe played three holes when he heard a horn to stop play. Jim Herman managed to play one hole. Practice rounds are important because only a dozen or so players have ever seen this 100-year-old course, which has not hosted a U.S. Open in 32 years. Workers were busy running squeegees across the greens and fairways during the afternoon before another downpour arrived. After the rain this morning, its going to be very sloppy now, Ernie Els said. Youre not going to see a firm U.S. Open this year, Im sorry. I dont care if they get helicopters flying over the fairways, its not going to dry up. Were going to have a soft golf course this week all week. The forecast was for mostly dry conditions Tuesday and Wednesday,followed by a 40 percent chance of rain on Thursday for the opening round. Merion received more than 3 inches of rain on Friday, and Mondays downpours three of them didnt help. The low point on the East course is the 11th hole, and a bunker was filled with water from an overflowing stream. Course superintendent Matt Shaffer said the base sand was left alone. Workers removed the silt and put about three tons of new sand in the bunker, tamped it down and we were ready to go. For now, officials were hopeful. Shaffer said Merion has had two big rains, and both times 11th green has stayed above water. And while there were tiny streams running through fairways and large pools of water on sections of the greens, the water appeared to drain quickly.

The New England Patriots seem to think so and plan to sign him on Tuesday if he passes a physical. He wont be a starting quarterback, of course, with Tom Brady on hand in Foxborough. But certainly hes an intriguing reclamation project yet another chance for coach Bill Belichick to torture the New York Jets, who failed to find a role for Tebow last season. And that could make for quite a Boston Tea-bow Party. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that Tebow will join the Patriots minicamp on Tuesday and sign with the team, pending the medical exam.

They were satisfied, yet shaken. The San Antonio Spurs had taken home-court advantage away from the Miami Heat, but then the reigning champions took them apart. So as they prepared to bring the NBA Finals back home for the first time in seven years, the veterans struggled with how they were supposed to sum up their situation. Getting one in South Florida was an accomplishment, but nothing that provided them any momentum after the Heats 103-84 victory Sunday in Game 2. Not after tonight. I think they regained that, Duncan said. Obviously we were glad to win a game here in Game 1. Our goal was to get two. But they got the one tonight. We get to go back home. We got a game here. We have three at home, so were excited about that. But if we play like we did tonight, thats not going to matter. The teams took Monday off, with the series resuming Tuesday night. The Spurs will also host Game 4 on Thursday and Game 5 on Sunday. The finals were once as much a part of June as the heat in this city deep in the heart of Texas. San Antonio won four titles in a nine-year span starting in 1999, but hasnt hosted a game in the NBAs championship round since the Spurs took a 2-0 lead over LeBron James and Cleveland in 2007. The Heat are just 3-22 in San Antonio, though they did win this year even while James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers sat out the late-season meeting. James had no cause for concern after Game 2, which validated his belief that he can depend on his teammates until he gets rolling, as he did late in the third quarter and well into the fourth. But a little doubt seemed to creep into the Spurs Big Three, unusual for a group that has been there, done that. Duncan, Parker and Ginobili have teamed for 99 postseason victories together, second-most in NBA history, a trio that is well aware of how quickly things can change in the playoffs. They changed really quickly in this series, about the time it took James to turn Tiago Splitters dunk attempt into a forever finals highlight with a blocked shot. Of course if you look at the result, being 1-1, its not bad. But you dont want to play like this in an NBA Finals, Ginobili said. You dont want to give them that much confidence, and you feeling bad about yourself. Satisfied but shaken, Spurs bring Finals home Associated PressCHICAGO When it comes to power plays in the Stanley Cup finals, the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins might just prefer to keep going with everyone on the ice. The last two teams in the NHL playoffs have been lousy with the man advantage and terrific at killing penalties during the postseason. When the Blackhawks are forced to play a man down, Michael Frolik and Marcus Kruger are so persistent it almost resembles an even-strength situation. And the Bruins have hulking defenseman Zdeno Chara and goalie Tuukka Rask, who is swallowing everything at the net these days. Heading into Game 1 on Wednesday night, goals on special teams have been so scarce for these teams that a couple for either side could tip the series in one direction. The special teams are kind of key, if you want to (have) success, Frolik said after Chicago held an optional practice on Monday. We try to talk about it all the time about that and make sure were on the same page. Its especially going to be key right now. Weve got to make we are ready for the challenge. So far, so good on that front for the Bruins and Blackhawks. With Frolik and Kruger tying up the action on top of the zone, Chicago has allowed just three goals in 58 powerplay opportunities for an astounding 94.8 percent kill rate. Los Angeles got two of them in the Western Conference finals, but one was a meaningless goal by Tyler Toffoli at the very end of the Blackhawks 4-2 victory in Game 2. The 92.5 percent finish for the 2000 New Jersey Devils is the best playoff rate for a Stanley Cup champion in the last 25 years, according to STATS. Pittsburgh had converted an NHLbest 28.3 percent of its power-play chances heading into the Eastern Conference finals against Boston, but the high-powered Penguins went 0 for 15 with the man advantage during the Bruins impressive four-game sweep. One of the lasting images from Bostons postseason run came with Pittsburgh on the power play in the second period of Game 3. Bruins forward Gregory Campbell broke his right leg when he dove to block Evgeni Malkins hard shot, then limped around for more than 30 seconds until Boston cleared the zone and he was able to get off the ice. Campbells gutsy display served as inspiration for the Bruins, and they went on to finish off the Penguins with a 1-0 victory on Friday. But Campbell will miss the remainder of the playoffs, presenting a challenge for the series against Chicago. Special teams could be crucial in Stanley Cup AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 3, Tigers 2KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jeremy Guthrie pitched impressively into the seventh inning, Salvador Perez hit a two-run triple and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 for their sixth straight victory. Guthrie (7-3) limited the Tigers to a two-run homer by Miguel Cabrera in 6 1-3 innings in helping the Royals to extend their longest winning streak since they won seven straight in September 2011. He gave up six hits and walked three. Aaron Crow replaced Guthrie after he gave up a single to Avisail Garcia and he hit Andy Dirks with an 0-2 pitch. Crow retired Torii Hunter on a fly to shallow right and struck out Cabrera to end the threat. Cabrera, who tops the American League with 90 hits and 69 RBIs, hit his 18th home run in the second after Hunter doubled. Perezs one-out triple in the third scored Alcides Escobar and Eric Hosmer after they each singled. Lorenzo Cains two-out infield single scored Perez with the go-ahead run. Doug Fister (5-4), who is 0-3 in five starts since a victory May 14 over Houston, went the distance. He allowed three runs on nine hits. Greg Holland worked a flawless ninth for his 13th save in 15 opportunities. The Royals are 7-2 in June after losing 20 of 28 games in May. The pitching staff has a 1.44 ERA in June. The Royals improved to 8-3 since George Brett was named the interim hitting coach on May 30.*Note: Standings do not reflect the results of Mondays game between the Red Sox and Rays. 2013 Tampa Bay Rays scheduleJune 11 vs Boston June 12 vs Boston June 13 vs Kansas City June 14 vs Kansas City June 15 vs Kansas City June 16 vs Kansas City June 18 at Boston June 19 at Boston June 20 at N.Y.

Former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist sees the logic in the move. If you can find a club thats mature enough to handle it as an organization, then youre going to find the right spot for him, Sundquist said. What I mean by that is all the media mania and that sort of thing. The club says, Look, this is the reason were bringing him on. We feel he can bring X, Y, Z and A, B, C to the table. Explain it to Tim, explain it to the media, explain it to your fan base and explain it to your organization. That description seems to fit New England perfectly. One of the NFLs most polarizing players, Tebow spent a lost season in 2012 with the New York Jets, playing sparingly behind struggling starter Mark Sanchez. Some fans thought he got a raw deal and deserved more of a chance; others thought he lacked the skills to be a pro quarterback. He was released in April with barely a shrug hardly the ending most Jets fans envisioned considering his super-hyped welcome to the Big Apple. Tebow won two national titles at Florida and was a first-round draft pick in 2010 by Denver. As a rookie, Tebow threw just 82 passes in nine games, starting three. But in 2011, he started 11 games, throwing for 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and took the Broncos to a wild-card win over Pittsburgh before an AFC divisional playoff loss to New England, 45-10. Despite the Broncos playoff run, he was traded to New York the following offseason when Denver signed Peyton Manning. Tebow threw only eight passes for the Jets, completing six, ran 32 times for 102 yards and was used mostly to protect the punter. Unfortunately, coach Rex Ryan said in a statement when Tebow was released, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. The Patriots have Ryan Mallett as the backup to Brady; they released QB Mike Kafka on Monday. Asked if Tebow had signed, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight. Tebows NFL career appeared over when the Jets couldnt trade him at draft time and wound up cutting the left-handed quarterback, who won the 2007 Heisman Trophy. But now he is headed to New England, where the man who drafted him as coach of the Broncos, Josh McDaniels, is an offensive assistant under Belichick. And apart from winning Super Bowls, Belichick likes nothing better than sticking it to the Jets. Hes had a running feud with Ryan for nearly four seasons, in part because Ryan once said he wasnt hired to kiss Belichicks rings. Belichick was Jets coach for one day in 2000, infamously resigning with a hand-written note. He soon joined New England, and has been regularly beating the Jets for more than a decade. Revitalizing Tebows career would be another big step toward humiliating New Englands archrival. Tebow has been criticized for his throwing motion but has said he wants to play quarterback, not switch positions. Still, the Patriots might need help at tight end after Rob Gronkowski underwent a fourth operation for a broken forearm and faces back surgery. At 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds, Tebow has the size to play that spot. Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy Brown, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater at defensive back when injuries hit that position. Belichick also has been willing to gamble on players discarded by other teams. Some have succeeded, like wide receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss and running back Danny Woodhead. Some havent, including wide receiver Chad Johnson and defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth. The media circus that surrounded Tebow in Denver and with the Jets also could be minimized by Belichick, who keeps a tight lid on players interactions with reporters.

Hollins confirmed Monday night to The Associated Press that he had been told his contract would not be renewed. Hollins contract had been set to expire June 30, but the Grizzlies issued a statement Monday night saying that Hollins was no longer with the organization. Jason Levien, chief executive officer and managing partner of the Grizzlies, said they decided after talks with Hollins and his agent to go in a different direction and thanked the veteran coach for his work with the franchise since its start in Vancouver. Hollins, who won an NBA title as a player with Portland in 1977, had been with the franchise for 10 of its first 12 seasons and was the interim head coach first in 199900 when he replaced Brian Hill after a 4-18 start in Vancouver and again for four games in 2004-05 after Hubie Brown resigned.Pistons hire Maurice Cheeks as new coachDETROIT Maurice Cheeks is getting a third shot to be an NBA head coach. The Detroit Pistons are desperately hoping he makes the most of the opportunity he was given Monday. Cheeks was 284-286 in the regular season and 5-11 during three postseasons while leading the Portland Trail Blazers and Philadelphia 76ers, a team he helped win an NBA title as a point guard. Detroit fired Lawrence Frank in April, a day after finishing 29-53. Frank was 54-94 in two seasons with the Pistons. Cheeks becomes the franchises fourth coach in six seasons following Frank, John Kuester and Michael Curry and ninth since the 1999-2000 season.Memento dispute settled, Kobes parents say sorryNEWARK, N.J. Kobe Bryant reached a settlement with a New Jersey auction house that allows his mother sell a small amount of his memorabilia, while also getting an apology from his parents, who thanked him for his financial support. Kenneth Goldin, founder of southern New Jersey-based Goldin Auctions, said Monday his company and the Los Angeles Lakers star had reached a settlement. Through a publicist, an attorney for Bryant also confirmed the dispute had been resolved. Citing a confidentiality agreement, Goldin wouldnt discuss details of the settlement beyond identifying the six items to be auctioned, including two uniforms worn by Bryant at Lower Merion High School outside Philadelphia and two 2000 NBA championship rings Bryant gave to his parents. In an emailed statement, Bryants parents wrote: We regret our actions and statements related to the Kobe Bryant auction memorabilia. We apologize for any misunderstanding and unintended pain we may have caused our son and appreciate the financial support that he has provided to us over the years. We also would like to apologize to Goldin Auctions for their inadvertent involvement in this matter and thank them for their assistance.Oudins defense ends in first round at Aegon ClassicBIRMINGHAM, England Melanie Oudins defense of her Aegon Classic title lasted only 57 minutes Monday, with the American losing 6-3, 6-1 to Croatian qualifier Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round. Oudin beat Jelena Jankovic in straight sets in last years final of the grass-court tournament, winning her only WTA title. The 21-year-old was a quarterfinalist at the 2009 U.S. Open but has struggled with her consistency since. Eighth-seeded Maria Joao Koehler, No. 10 Hsieh Su-wei and No. 11 Ayumi Morita were also eliminated in the first round.Hewitt rallies past Russell in Queens first roundLONDON Former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt rallied past Michael Russell of the United States 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the first round at the Queens Club on Monday. The Australian has won this Wimbledon tuneup four times as well as the 2001 U.S. Open and 2002 Wimbledon. He has now won 111 matches on grass. Roger Federer leads among current players with 112. Hewitt sent a forehand into the net to drop the opening set. He ran away with the second set after saving six break points in the second game to lead 2-0. After an early exchange of breaks in the decider, Hewitt broke to lead 5-3.Cincinnati Bengal Adam Pacman Jones arrestedCINCINNATI Court documents show Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones has been arrested and jailed on an assault charge after police said he tried to hurt a woman. A police complaint states Jones is accused of striking the Cincinnati woman shortly before midnight June 5. The police report lists the injury as apparently minor. Jones was arrested Monday. A message left for his agent hasnt been returned. Court documents show Jones was released on his own recognizance with his arraignment on the misdemeanor charge scheduled for Tuesday. Its not the first time Jones has been in trouble. He pleaded guilty in January 2012 to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He had been accused of shouting profanities and trying to pull away as police arrested him at a Cincinnati bar months earlier.US faces Panama in World Cup qualifyingSEATTLE Ask FIFA and the organization says it sees no problem with playing on a quality artificial field. U.S. Soccer still does. Playing on a temporary grass field is the situation that will face the United States on Tuesday night when the men face Panama in a World Cup qualifier. The U.S. (2-1-1) improved to seven points in the 10-game final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region after winning at Jamaica last Friday night 2-1. The U.S. trails Costa Rica (2-1-1) on goal difference and is ahead of Mexico (1-0-4) on goals scored. Its not an ideal surface, but U.S. Soccer wanted to reward Seattle for the support it has shown for soccer in recent years with the Sounders in the MLS.From wire reports

B4TUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE GOLF Few other American courses have the kind of history found at Merion Golf Club. This is the course where Bobby Jones completed his impregnable quadrilateral more commonly known as the Grand Slam in 1930 when he won the U.S. Amateur. Its where Ben Hogan completed a remarkable comeback from a near-fatal car accident by hitting a 1-iron to the 18th green for par in the final round to get into a playoff in 1950, which he won the next day. There are no flags on the greens, rather red wicker baskets are attached to the top of each pin. Merion has hosted 18 USGA championships dating to 1904, more than any other golf course. But when David Graham won the U.S. Open in 1981, the prevailing thought was that Merion was history when it came to hosting the toughest test in golf. The U.S. Open had become too big. Merion was considered small, not only the length of the golf course (6,996 yards) but the 111-acre property left little room for staging such a big tournament. Ultimately, the USGA did not want to turn its back on a course considered one of the best in the land. When we closed up in 1981, its not as if the course didnt play well, but we really thought this was the last time at least at a national open championship you would ever see Merion played on TV, USGA executive director Mike Davis said. And really, it had nothing to do with the golf course in terms of a test of golf. But it had everything to do with, How do you fit a modern day U.S. Open on this 111 acres? They have managed by capping ticket sales at 25,000 a day, down from an average of 40,000 at other courses. And theyre using the backyards of homes along the perimeter of the course, along with Haverford College, to stage hospitality areas. As for the golf course? No one ever doubted it could provide a stern test, even though it is short by modern standards. The opening stretch has a pair of par 5s early (one of them at 628 yards) and a 256-yard par 3. Merion offers a breather with a seven-hole stretch in the middle that features four par 4s under 400 yards. Then it saves a haymaker for the end of the round with the 521-yard closing hole. If conditions are soft, Davis believes it could yield more birdies than any other U.S. Open. All he cares is that it identifies the best player. I thought they had skipped over Merion, and I didnt know why, because I thought Merion was a great course, said Jack Nicklaus, who lost in an 18-hole playoff to Lee Trevino at Merion in the 1971 U.S. Open. I dont think its all about what you shoot. Its about whos the best player on . esruoc flog taht The best player remains Tiger Woods, who has won four times on the PGA Tour this year and is eh tuB dlrow eht ni 1 .oN ta kcab has gone five years since winning his 14th major in the 2008 U.S. Open. Davis believes more players are capable of winning at Merion than at other U.S. Opens, a major that has never been kind to favorites. Throw out Woods, and the last time a player from the top five in the world ranking won the Open was Curtis Strange in 1989. Webb Simpson is the defending champion, and he will try to join Strange (1988-89) and Hogan (1950-51) as the only back-toback winners in the last 75 years. Woods and Matt Kuchar are the only players who have won more than once this year. Of the top 20 players in the world at the start of the year, 14 have yet to win on the PGA Tour this season. Not since 2006 at Royal Liverpool has Woods won a major on a course he has never seen. He has company. Merion has been out of the picture for so long that only 11 players in the field have competed here in the 1989 U.S. Amateur, the 2005 U.S. Amateur and the 2009 Walker Cup. That short list includes Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler. For others, it will be a new experience one the USGA is happy to provide. Its obviously historic, said 2006 U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy. Its buried in a really nice neighborhood in Philadelphia. It has the basket pins. Its one of the courses all the architecture aficionados talk about it. Its nice when you play an Open where they take you to a place you want to play.

Olin Dutra won the first one in 1934. It also hosted the event in 1950 (Ben Hogan); 1971 (Lee Trevino); and 1981 (David Graham). Its one of the top courses in the country, and though not particularly long, it will challenge every ounce of skill and patience the worlds best golfers have to offer.

The 32 years is the fth-longest time between U.S. Opens for a golf course. SHORTEST GOLF COURSE FOR A MAJOR IN NINE YEARS The scorecard for Merion will be 6,996 yards at par 70, making it the shortest course for any major championship since Shinnecock Hills (also 6,996 yards) in the 2004 U.S. Open. The difference? Merion has ve par 4s that are under 400 yards. FIRST MAJOR IN THREE DECADES WITHOUT FLAGS The signature of Merion is the wicker baskets instead of ags that are attached to the pins red for the front, orange for the back. The idea came from course designer Hugh Wilson, though exactly what inspired him remains unknown. Wickers were used at three of the four previous Opens at Merion. The exception was 1950. LONG PUTTERS RECORD AT MAJOR CHAMPIONS Four of the last six majors have been won by players using an anchored putting stroke, with Adam Scott at the Masters completing this version of a Grand Slam. This much is known: A long putter (belly or broom) anchored to the body can only be used in three more U.S. Opens. The putters will be illegal on Jan. 1, 2016. 1350 yards, par 4: This likely will be an iron off the tee, which leaves a wedge to the green. A sycamore tree to the right might keep players from trying to drive the green. A dozen bunkers line the nal 100 yards into the green. Its a gentle opening hole. 2 556 yards, par 5: The fairway has been shifted to the right to tighten the landing area, and it brings in an out-of-bounds to the right. The left side features some of the thickest rough on the course. For the second shot, players can try to reach the green or lay up short of a cross bunker about 35 yards in front of the green. 3 256 yards, par 3: Two tee boxes will be used, measuring 219 yards and 256 yards. The green slopes severely from back left to front right, and it is surrounded by bunkers. One of them short and right of the green is one of the deepest at Merion. The toughest recovery is anything left of the green. 4 628 yards, par 5: A new tee box brings the fairway bunkers into play. It will be tough to keep the drive in the fairway because the landing area slopes from right-to-left. For the second shot, players cant see over a cross bunker. The green is fronted by a creek, increasing the risk of going for the green in two. 5 504 yards, par 4: One of the most demanding driving holes, bends hard to the left with a stream running down the left side of the entire hole, and the fairway slopes to the left. The approach can be bounced onto the green, which is the most severely sloped on the course. The worst place to be is right of the green, for that leads to exceptionally fast putts. 6 487 yards, par 4: Another long par 4 features a partially blind tee shot over a crest to a bowl-shaped fairway. The green is pitched from back left to the front, and the tricky part is a false front. The options are to run the approach onto the green or y it to the middle of the green. 7 360 yards, par 4: This starts a stretch of ve holes that are all under 375 yards and could be the place to pick up birdies. Most players will opt for a long iron off the tee to a partially blind, angled landing area. A tee shot too far to the right will irt with out-of-bounds and overhanging trees. 8 359 yards, par 4: Another long iron or fairway metal to a curved landing area with thick native grass on both sides of the fairway. That leaves a wedge to a small green protected by deep rough and a large bunker in the front. The green has several contours and slopes from back left to front right. Par is dif cult for those missing the green. 9 236 yards, par 3: This plays downhill to a green shaped like a kidney, with ragged bunkers on both sides and water in front and to the right of the green. It could be about a 6-iron for front hole locations, and long irons to carry the left bunker when the hole location is back and left. 10 303 yards, par 4: Every player can reach the green, but the tee shot must be shaped severely from right-to-left to get around the corner. The safe play is a mid-iron to a narrow fairway. Any shot that misses the green to the left will wind up in deep fescue that could make it tough to get the next shot on the green. 11 367 yards, par 4: Another long iron off the tee, and utterly important to nd the fairway, which drops from the tee box to create a blind shot and is anked by Baf ing Brook on the left. Anyone missing the fairway might have to play short of the brook, which hugs the front, right and rear of the teardrop-shaped green. This could be the ultimate birdie-orbust hole at Merion. 12 403 yards, par 4: This sharp dogleg right features a fairway that slopes severely to the right. The right side of the fairway leaves a more level lie, though it is framed by extremely penal rough on the right. The green slopes from back left to front right, making it tough to save par on any shot that is long or left. 13 115 yards, par 3: This de nes the extreme difference at Merion all the other par 3s are over 200 yards, and this is a sand wedge. The oval-shaped green might be the smallest on the course with challenging contours. The view of the green is obscured from the tee by a huge bunker in front. 14 464 yards, par 4: This is where some players might nd out if there is any rust on the driver. There are bunkers in the landing area and high native grass to the left. The second shot will be a mid-iron to a large, contoured green. Anything missing the green to the left could bounce off the closely mown knoll and irt with out-of-bounds. 15 411 yards, par 4: Players can do whatever they want off the tee, though its an intimidating shot with a long iron or driver. The hole bends to the right, with three deep bunkers protecting the right side and out-of-bounds on the left. Going into the bunkers makes it tough to get onto the green. The putting surface features some of the most severe slopes at Merion. 16 430 yards, par 4: A fairway metal likely will be the choice on the famous Quarry Hole to stay short of the hazard. The green features a pronounced depression in the front night. This might be the last realistic chance at birdie. 17 246 yards, par 3: Players will face tee shots of 246 yards and 195 yards, a dramatic hole with amphitheater seating. The hole is slightly downhill to a green that has a deep ridge in the front that must be carried from the tee. The slopes feed balls to the back right portion of the green. Front hole locations are the most dif cult. 18 521 yards, par 4: Merion has one of the most famous 18th holes because of Ben Hogan and his 1-iron on the 72nd hole of the 1950 U.S. Open. The drive is partially blind over the quarry to a landing zone that pitches downhill and steeply to the left at 300 yards. WOODS MAHAN SCHWARTZEL This golf course is not built on sand, so its got the heavier soils, USGA executive director Mike Davis said. But it is maybe the best draining golf course I have ever seen. If you walk this course, you know theres hardly any flat lies at Merion. Merion is 6,996 yards on the scorecard, the shortest U.S. Open course since Shinnecock Hills in 2004. The rough is thicker than usual compared with most recent U.S. Opens, though soft greens are a recipe for low scoring no matter the golf course. Congressional was softened significantly by rain, and Rory McIlroy shattered the scoring record at 16-under 268 for an eight-shot win. As for the week, it rained so much at Bethpage Black in 2002 that the tournament barely finished 72 holes on Monday, with Lucas Glover winning. Els mentioned the firm fairways because thats what can make Merion tricky. Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy were among those who came to Merion early, and they all spoke about the experience necessary to find the right angle off the tee to keep the ball in the fairway. Geoff Ogilvy played Sunday for the first time and mentioned the best driver would fare well but not necessarily the straightest driver. With soft fairways, it becomes more of a target. Obviously with it being a little soft, it becomes a little more simple than what it was, Scott said. The ball is just going to stop where it lands. Davis said the USGA would try to move the hole locations to some of the higher spots on the greens to avoid standing water if it rains on Thursday. As for the fairways, even with standing water, the U.S. Open could be played as long as players could move the ball to a dry spot that didnt add significant distance to their shots. The next two days could be crucial. We just need a little bit of sunshine, Shaffer said.

Irecently saw a patient who presented with a clot in a superficial vein of the leg. This is usually not a serious condition. He was a heavy smoker who quit smoking a few years ago. I advised him to get a CT scan of his chest as per recent recommendations. It showed lung cancer. Hopefully, he will be cured of the cancer in the future. A study is published in NEJM (New England Journal of Medicine). The National Lung Screening Trial found that CT scans were highly sensitive in detecting lung cancer in smokers, when compared with chest X-rays. In this study, almost 26,000 participants underwent CT scans and almost the same number underwent chest Xrays. These were all heavy smokers. A total of 7,191 participants (27.3 percent) in the low-dose CT group and 2,387 (9.2 percent) in the chest Xray group had a positive screening result. If there was cancer, the CT scan picked it up in 94 percent of cases. The problem is if the CT scan picked up a mass, it may or may not be cancer and it turned out to be cancer in only about 27 percent of cases. A positive result means there was a mass or nodule in the lung, which required follow up by either further scan or, in some cases, a biopsy of the mass. Sometimes, what looks like cancer may turn out to be inflammation or a benign noncancerous mass. buse of prescription drugs has become almost epidemic in the U.S., yet many drug abusers do not realize they have a problem. Many people mistakenly think prescription drugs are safe because a doctor prescribed them. Whenever you use a medication for the wrong purpose or in larger amounts than prescribed, you are abusing prescription drugs. When taken correctly, prescription drugs make our lives easier and help us to manage illness and pain. However, a prescription drug can be dangerous if it is not taken as instructed or is combined with other medications or alcohol. Here are some guidelines for prescription drug safety:Tell your doctor honestly about all the medications you are taking, including overthe-counter drugs and vitamin supplements, and about your alcohol consumption. Never take someone elses prescription medication to try to relieve your symptoms. Each body responds to drugs differently, and you could have an adverse reaction.Do not keep prescription drugs where children can reach them or where visitors to your home can access them. Dispose of leftover prescription drugs when you no longer need them.Do not suddenly stop taking a prescription drug or attempt to wean yourself off a drug without a doctors supervision.

Those who are uninsured or underinsured often face delays in testing and treatment for many different health issues. We also know certain racial groups also face the same challenges, and now new data supports the fact black patients continue to have longer waits from diagnosis of prostate cancer to treatment, compared with Caucasian patients, according to a study recently published in Cancer. In this study, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill used data from the Surveillance, Epidemiologic and End Results-Medicare linked database to analyze potential differences in the time it took to treat 2,506 black and 21,454 Caucasian patients diagnosed with localized prostate cancer between 2004 and 2007. All of the patients in this study were treated within 12 months; however differences based upon race were noted. The researchers found that, among all risk groups, the time from diagnosis to definitive treatment with either surgery or radiation therapy was longer for black patients. This difference was most pronounced in high-risk cancer patients, those who have a very high PSA level or a high Gleason score. Racial differences persisted for any treatment at all in the analysis, from diagnostic procedures and testing to the actual treatment itself. In high-risk disease compared with low-risk disease, and in more recent years, the delay to definitive treatment was longer than had been measured before, showing that we are actually losing ground on trying to eliminate these disparities. To summarize, black prostate cancer patients experienced longer time from diagnosis to treatment than Caucasian patients. black patients appear to experience disparities across all aspects of this disease process, and together these factors play an important role in the observed differences in rates of recurrence and mortality among black and Caucasian prostate cancer patients, with black having a higher chance of recurrence and death from prostate cancer than Caucasian patients.Dr. C.

Sixteen-year-old Megan Webb takes unsteady steps in the physical therapy room at Ranken Jordan, a pediatric specialty hospital in Maryland Heights, Mo. The Belleville West teen is recovering from a traumatic brain injury, which she suffered during a car crash that left her friend dead earlier this year. With her physical therapist Melissa Rentfrow following closely behind, Megan walked unassisted up and down a hallway at Ranken Jordan during a recent therapy session. She wears an orthopedic brace to stabilize her left leg and uses a cane as needed. At times, Rentfrow holds onto a fabric belt with handles around Megans waist. Rentfrow said its a gait belt used to help stabilize individuals with balance issues. Rentfrow also wrapped a long strip of white fabric around Megans left leg. It helps stabilize her leg and keeps her left toes from going in, her mother, Tracy Webb, explained. Walking is just the warm-up for Megan. She then moves on to the Total Gym machine to work on strengthening her left leg. Rentfrow said the brain injury affected Megans left side more. Next, Megan walks on a treadmill and then maneuvers up and down stairs. In addition, Rentfrow shows Megan, a varsity volleyball standout, and her mother stretching exercises she can do at home. No matter what crazy exercises Rentfrow comes up with, she said Megan never complains. Prior to her physical therapy session, Megan practiced counting money and making the correct change during an occupational therapy session. Megan is in the day treatment program at Ranken Jordan. For six hours every weekday, Megan does speech, occupational and physical therapies as well as homebound schoolwork. Its definitely all worth it, Tracy said. Well do whatever it takes. Megan recently got Botox injections in her left leg to help relax the muscle and increase her range of motion, Tracy said. Megan has also tested out a WalkAide brace on her left leg, which electrically stimulates it to work as it should, according to Tracy. Tracy has been by her daughters side since the crash occurred Jan. 26. Tracy said she had no choice but to give up the new job she secured prior to Megans accident so she could care for her daughter. Another one will come when the time is right, Tracy said. Megans friend and the driver of the car, Stephen Zehner, 18, died in the crash. Im sad he died. We were pretty close, Megan said. Hes watching (over) us. Megan doesnt remember anything about the crash. Its all a blur, she said. I remember getting in the car and I put on my seat belt, and he didnt. Megan credits Stephens girlfriend, Anna Kreeb, with saving her life. She found me first, Megan said. Tracy said it was terrible to get that phone call the night of the crash. It was surreal, she said. There was no doubt in my mind she was going to be OK. Stephens mother, Ginger Zehner-Denton, 39, of Mascoutah, was charged May 15 with unlawful delivery of alcohol, a class 4 felony. According to court records, Zehner-Denton allegedly purchased a six-pack of beer and a pint of whiskey between Jan. 25 and 26 and provided the alcohol to Zehner. The death of Stephen Zehner occurred as a result of such delivery, the court records state. Megan spent three months at St. Louis Childrens Hospital recovering from her extensive injuries, which included a brain injury, broken ribs, a hairline fracture to her pelvis and bruised spleen, kidney and lungs. She was released from the hospital April 25. I hated it, she said of her lengthy hospital stay. While in the hospital, Tracy said her daughter was a perfect patient. She didnt complain once. However, at one point, Megan did flip off her physical therapist at childrens hospital, Tracy recalled. Megan spent her first six weeks at the hospital unconscious. Megan is participating in a research study at Childrens Hospital, Tracy said, and is receiving really good follow-up care.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013 C3 Communication takes investment of time, effort Q:I am having such a hard time communicating with my dentist. He is a man of very few words. I trust him; however, I wish he would communicate more directly to me rather than through his nurse. Why is it that doctors and dentists have such a hard time communicating with patients? Please print my concerns, as I am sure many people share my feelings. What should I do, short of leaving his office and going elsewhere? Thank you in advance. A: This is a good question, one that I, too, feel many people have on their minds. Lets start with you saying that you trust him. Apparently, he has done something in the past that leads you to say that. People do not generally get the trust of someone unless they have earned it. It seems that through his actions he has earned your trust despite that fact that you have other issues with him. This leads me to another issue that has been in the newspapers lately the changing face of health care. Some doctors and dentists are being forced to spend less time with their patients because of the changes that have taken place in the insurance industry. We are all aware of them. Insurance companies are charging more and giving less. Doctors are being forced to delegate tasks to others so they can see the next patient. Some patients have been in a situation where they feel as though they are in an assembly line. I hear it from many of the new patients in my practice. The personal service is gone, and many people are tired of it. Please remember that even though doctors and dentists are health care providers, they are also running a business. As part of running a business, they have certain obligations to uphold. Some doctors and dentists choose to make ends meet by seeing more patients and accepting a reduced fee. Others have chosen to see fewer patients and charge a higher fee. It may be your dentist falls into the first category. Those of us who chose the second category have the ability to spend more time with each patient and deliver a quality of care that some people value more. We can get to know the patient, what the issues at hand are, and make them feel like a person who has the undivided attention of their health care provider. You have probably heard of a doctor tailoring the care based on a patients health insurance. Some of us have chosen to provide health care based on the patients best interests. That being said it could also be that your dentist simply does not have good communication skills. Dental school teaches students dentistry. Unless your dentist realizes he is lacking in that department, he would not seek out the continuing education courses that could teach him them. As you are aware, communication is so important in life. Whether it is in the office, with your spouse, children or friends, communications can make or break a situation. As for your question of whether to leave him or not that is up to you. If you have tried to communicate to no avail, chances are that is the way it is going to be. As you can see, there is a lot that can go into answering this question. I could go on, but I think you get the gist of it. I hope this helped you. Thank you for the question.

Alcohol abuse can be divided into three main categories: psychological, medical, and social. In most instances, the various problems that occur because of excessive drinking cannot be separated from one another. Alcoholism is rather unique in that it is not only a chronic disease but also a disorder of behavior. The consumption of alcohol differs in different societies. Drinking to the extent that it exceeds the normal social customs of a community will lead one to poor health and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. In addition to the alcohol found commonly in beer, wine and spirits, some of the stronger spirits contain various components that add taste and flavor that could potentially be even more toxic than the alcohol itself. An example is the wood aging that is done with certain alcoholic beverages that expose us to resins that we normally would not consume. Besides the notable problem that alcohol causes to the liver, other organs are affected as well. A high intake of alcohol can raise the risk of broken bones by approximately 20 percent some studies suggest. Patients who suffer from gout can have double the amount of attacks if they exceed a recommended two-drink-a-day limit. Our circulatory system can be adversely affected by alcohol. This includes aggravation of high blood pressure and increased risk of bleeding. We all know a glass or two of wine has been recommended to cut the risk of a blood clot type of stroke, but excessive amounts of alcohol can cause an increased chance of bleeding in the brain, a different type of stroke but equally as devastating. Abnormal or irregular heartbeat can be precipitated by drinking too much. Alcohol is primarily metabolized by the liver, but its effect on the neurologic system and brain can wreak havoc. In the early stages, it can cause drunkenness and blackouts with short-term memory loss. Longterm it can cause premature aging of the brain and dementia. Tremors, shakes, or the jitters are usually a sign of alcohol withdrawal. End-stage damage to the brain can even include hallucinations, which means patients hear and see things that dont really exist. Younger victims can fall prey just as well as older ones and have the added concern of females drinking to excess and causing what is known as fetal alcohol syndrome. All aspects of the babys development can be affected and can result in an abnormal pregnancy and birth. Alcohol, it seems, can trigger many cancers, as well. Women who drink frequently and liberally have about a onethird increased risk of breast cancer compared to light drinkers. Colon and rectal cancers are 25 percent higher in heavy drinkers. It is well established that heavy drinkers have a high incidence of mouth, throat, and esophageal cancers, which are very aggressive and very devastating. Various problems that arise from excessive drinking are very complicated and can do irreparable harm to the individual as well as to friends and family. Unfortunately, in many cases the physical and psychological injury that occurs is difficult, if not impossible to reverse.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

are particularly dangerous because they have an effect on the brain, and sudden withdrawal can cause panic attacks and seizures.Do not be ashamed to tell your doctor if you are abusing drugs, or if you are suffering from a condition such as depression, insomnia, or anxiety which might lead you to abuse prescription drugs. Your doctor can help you.Follow your doctors instructions and read the information on prescription labels. Do not combine medications without your doctors or pharmacists supervision. Report any unpleasant side effects, such as constipation, that might discourage you from taking your medication as prescribed. Work together with your doctor to manage your symptoms and use prescription drugs responsibly. Prescription drug addiction can occur when you are prescribed certain medication for a prolonged period, such as pain medication for an injury or after surgery, or medication to relieve anxiety. Prescription drug addiction creeps up on you gradually. Consider this when you start taking a medication more frequently or in larger doses than the doctor prescribed, or when you begin taking, say, pain medication to try to relieve depression, anxiety, or sleeplessness essentially not using medication for its prescribed purpose. You initially develop drug tolerance, meaning that your body no longer responds to the medication in the same way and the doctor must prescribe a stronger dose or a different drug. Gradually, you become physically dependent on the drug and develop a need for it to feel normal; some may have cravings for it. When the effects of the drug wear off, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, shaking, sweating, nervousness, insomnia, aches and pains or vomiting. While tolerance and physical dependence are physical changes in the body, they do not necessarily mean you are addicted. Speak with your doctor, who can help to differentiate. When you no longer need the medication, your doctor will gradually reduce the dosage, giving your body time to adjust. An addict will continue to take drugs even when the consequences are obviously harmful and unpleasant, and is unable to stop even when he or she wants to. Addiction is dangerous. Most addicts find they need stronger and stronger doses of a drug to get the same effects, which can lead to a drug overdose. Many medications are intended for only short-term use and can cause permanent damage to the heart, liver or brain when used for extended periods of time. Since drugs affect perception and impair coordination and judgment, an addict is likely to be injured in a fall, cause a traffic accident or make unwise decisions. Performance at school or work deteriorates. Changes in behavior and personality may drive away friends and family members, as the addict becomes self-absorbed and withdrawn. Drug addiction not only hurts the addict it puts family members in danger. Three types of prescription medications are likely to cause addiction because of how they act on the brain: opioids (hydrocodone, oxycodone and morphine), tranquilizers (benzodiazapines such as sedatives Xanax, Valium) and stimulants (Ritalin, Adderall and Desoxyn). The signs of addiction may vary depending on the type of drug, but they include:Taking higher doses than prescribedStealing pills from other family membersSeeking prescriptions from multiple doctorsContinually losing or misplacing prescriptions or medications so that they have to be replacedAppearing to be sedated, euphoric, or unusually energetic and wired upExcessive mood swings or hostilityAbnormal changes in sleeping habitsLapses in judgment, inattention, mistakes, injuries and accidentsForgetting appointments, missing important events, being late for work or schoolUnusual money behaviors, such as not paying bills, borrowing from friends, spending sprees, or using someone elses credit card without askingStashing pill bottles in multiple locations around the house Secretive and manipulative behavior, telling half-truths, confessing one thing to one family member and telling another story to someone elseWithdrawal from family and social relationships Dont ignore the warning signs. If you think you or someone you love might be addicted to prescription drugs, talk to your doctor. Drug addiction is a chronic disease, and the earlier it is treated the better the outcome. Medications are available to treat addiction to pain killers and other medications. Treatment may take place at home or in a rehabilitation facility. For all types of drugs, treatment begins with a period of detoxification. This is typically followed by counseling and behavioral therapy to address underlying emotional and psychological problems that contributed to the addiction. Detoxification should take place under medical supervision because the body could undergo severe and potentially dangerous reactions, including pain, nausea and seizures. The detoxification period is only the beginning of a long process of recovery. Family members must always be vigilant for signs of return to drug use, particularly during times of stress or instability in the addicts life.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013 C5 A stepwise approach to diagnosing problems Diagnostic modalities can aid in the diagnosis of medical problems, but experience of the treating doctor and the history of and physical examination of the problem are of utmost importance, in my opinion, and should obviously be performed first. The history and nature of the complaint helps the doctor, nurse or other health care professional narrow down the potential causes of the problem. Think of doctors as troubleshooters, of sorts. The more pertinent information given to the doctor regarding the problem is invaluable in my opinion. Think about it. The patient is living with the problem, often knows what caused it, and usually has a good idea of what makes it better or worse. Who better than to tell another about the ailment? I chose my words carefully about information, however. An anecdote about how the Army rejected a recruit for flat feet in 1940 does not aid in the diagnosis of gout today. Time is valuable, and the more directed a visit with the doctor to the problem at hand can be, the better. I put information a patient tells me about their problem into what I call body system baskets. Does the description fit into the vascular or neurologic basket? I weigh the baskets when I am satisfied with the interview to narrow down the possible causes of a problem and then have a better idea of what to order, try, or refer to next. The history and physical examination of a patient and their complaint was the only way to come to a diagnosis before the advances of laboratory testing and radiographs were available. We now have CT, MR and bone scans available, to name a few. These tests should be ordered and performed when necessary, but obviously should not be overutilized due to cost issues, which are a reality of life. I find these test help me when I am either stumped as to what the problem is, when a patient has a difficult time describing the history and presentation of their problem, or when I cannot see pathology I would expect on in-office radiographs. I had two occurrences recently where the symptoms were vague, clouding the history and nature of the cause of the malady. Patients called and relayed what I had suggested was not helping. I relayed to both patients that the options would be either a cortisone injection for treatment or obtaining an MR exam to see what the radiographs could not. One patient opted for the MR, and it was the right choice. The MR showed pathology quite clearly that my physical exam and radiographs could not. Injection of cortisone in this patients case would have been contraindicated. The MR then put us on path to a better chance of resolution of this problem. I had a feeling with the other patient that an injection would be the wrong choice. The feeling I had was from experience doing my job at that point in trying to help the patient. The patient and I were prepared to perform an injection, but something on the last visit told me to lean toward the MR. The MR once again showed an issue where an injection would not have helped, and a different course to help the patient was mapped out. I use advanced testing and labs in trying to help patients. I firmly believe the obtaining of the patients history and that of the patients complaint in addition to the physical exam is the most important part in the medical diagnosis problem. Many issues can be solved on the initial visit, but others cant. Advanced diagnostic testing can be inconvenient, timeconsuming, uncomfortable, expensive and scary. Advanced diagnostic testing greatly aids in the diagnosis of insidious medical pathologies and is available. Try to have an open mind with advanced diagnostic modalities if your doctor finds them necessary. They can help aid in the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems, saving time and morbidity in most cases. David B. Raynor.

It cut down the mortality by 20 percent and that is extremely significant. The American Cancer Society, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and American College of Chest Physicians have recommended CT lung cancer screening. The American Cancer Society has recommended screening for high-risk individuals ages 55 to 74 who have smoked a pack or more of cigarettes a day for 30 years or more, and who are still smoking or who quit less than 15 years ago. Unfortunately, insurance companies are still not covering the CT scan for screening purposes. I hope this changes soon. Meantime, I suggest all smokers who fulfill the above criteria to consider having a CT scan and talk to your doctor. If you have symptoms like cough or shortness of breath, your insurance may cover it anyway. My patient got the CT scan and it showed a lung mass and biopsy showed it as cancer. He hopefully will be cured from this. He had no symptoms of the cancer and if I did not do the scan, the cancer would have grown and very likely, I would have detected it at a later stage. At that time, it might not have been curable. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society. Write to 521 N.

It was the unexpected blossoming of romance as the Art Center Theater players drew us into the beauty of recaptured love. Romance in D was written by James Sherman and directed by Fran Scott, a stalwart 20-year supporter of theater in Citrus County. Performing, directing, singing, Scott does it all with an uncanny ability and a sincerity that shines through each theatrical production. Peter Abrams, as George Fox, portrays a character that relishes being on a combination of Groucho Marx, Woody Allen and Buster Keaton. As he attempts to cheer up his daughter, Isabel, who is in the midst of a divorce, he brings out boxes of movies in the hopes that they will sway her attempts at suicide. With campy remarks such as, Being alone is beneficial, and, The only thing that will fix your situation is a few laughs, and, Youll like Buster Keaton, its silent, he fails miserably. Isabel, played superbly by Kelly Lapp, just wants to be alone. The setting is two adjacent apartments in Chicago, where Charles Norton, portrayed by Howard Christ as an aloof musicologist, is drawn into the drama of Isabels misery, who, as a poet, turns on the gas and puts her head in the oven. Norton, reluctantly at first, comes to her rescue. A yes and no limited conversationalist, Christs portrayal of the Norton character was genuine, as gently and unobtrusively they are drawn to each other in their respective needs. With lines like, Music is the most effective form of communication, and If everyone loved music, the world would be a better place, and as the Norton character gives Isabel a CD and player, we begin to root for the two as the relationship gently unfolds. In the eight scenes of Act I, the interchange of the players is a transformative revelation that is reflective, comedic, gentle and indicative of a directors mission to draw the audience into the plot and leave them with a takeaway thought or two to ponder. Abrams and Chris McMillan, as Helen, the mother of Charles, delighted us with their evolving relationship discussing their son and daughter; Helen popping in with soothing chicken soup, sandwiches, finding they have so much in common. The scene where Emily Dickinsons take on how to be a recluse and the Isabel and Charles Norton characters playing Scrabble in near silence showed star quality brought to fruition by director Scott. Finally, as Isabel shares one of her poems with Charles and he, a Bernstein fan, proclaims there is Humor in Music and her poems last line reads, Come out, come out wherever you are, we begin to feel there is hope for the two. Act II finds the players at their best; Helen making potato pancakes, revealing their innermost needs, in split-second timing. Love bloomed gloriously on the Art Centers stage, and once more the dedicated efforts of the volunteer cast and crew brought joy to a most appreciative audience.

TUESDAY, JUNE11, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Gioacchino Rossini, an Italian opera composer who died in 1868, said, One cannot judge Lohengrin from a first hearing, and I certainly do not intend to hear it a second time. At the bridge table, do not judge a deal totally from your first glance; give it a second look to check that you have not missed something. So, have a second slice of toast this morning. South is in four spades. West leads the heart king and continues with the heart queen. How should declarer plan the play? Pre-empts are a pain. Souths sequence shows a very strong four-spade bid, because an immediate four-spade overcall would also be strong. When you intervene over a pre-empt, assume your partner has six or seven points and base your actions appropriately. So, jumping straight to four spades suggests around a working 20-count. This sequence promises more. Here, of course, North couldnt care less! South has nine top tricks: six spades, one diamond and two clubs. At first glance, he needs the club finesse to work. However, there is a second chance diamonds might break 3-3. After ruffing the second heart, declarer should cash the spade ace, then play the diamond ace and another diamond. Suppose East wins and leads a third heart. Declarer ruffs high and plays another diamond. In a moment, South will draw trumps ending with dummys spade 10 and cash the high diamond. But note that if diamonds had split 4-2, the club finesse would still have been available. For more on this deal, tune in tomorrow.

(N) (Live) NewsVideos Dear Annie: My sons estranged wife has reported him to child protective services six times and to the police for various things shes invented over the past three years. Due to her false accusations, he has been arrested three times. He has been found innocent of all charges, but she persists. She charged him with violating a restraining order and appeared in court last week flanked by bodyguards supplied by victim services. This charge was thrown out. My son has never touched her, but she has convinced many people that he is dangerous. She is such a good liar that she actually believes her own stories, which makes her even more convincing. My son has become so paranoid, he barely leaves his house. He is so depressed that he can barely function and is unable to work. She is slowly killing him. Is there anything he can do besides continue to defend himself? The lawyers costs have become a nightmare for our whole family. There must be something more we can do besides waiting for her next dramatic step. Worried Family Members Dear Worried: Your husband may need to go on the offensive. What his ex-wife is doing is harassment, and he should ask his lawyer about suing her. He also can search for a divorce support group in his area or online and get into low-cost therapy for his own well-being. He needs to get his life back. Dear Annie: My dear friends daughter recently married. When she first got engaged, she announced a small wedding, and I offered to make silk flowers. I do this professionally and had most of the supplies. Months later, it turned into a huge event. I also was in the middle of a major move. I agonized over finding the exact color and got frustrated when I needed to do more flowers than I had originally planned. I also had to buy additional supplies because what I had in mind wasnt acceptable to the bride. Since I had moved, I needed to find new suppliers. I spent hours running around and emailing the bride about her specifications. I knew it was going to cost me hundreds more than I planned, so several months before the actual wedding, I opted out of attending. I was newly unemployed and simply could not afford it. But I found the perfect bling that the bride wanted and sent the flowers to her. I never received so much as a thank you. Her last email was, Are you still coming? I refused to answer. Not once did she ask, How are you? So Bridezilla had her day, and now my friend is not speaking to me. Was I wrong not to attend? I told my friend I wasnt coming. The Friend Who Wasnt There Dear Friend: You are never obligated to attend a wedding unless you are a participant. And your flowers were a lovely gift for which the bride should have thanked you and over which she undoubtedly drove you nuts. However, when the bride asked whether you were coming to the wedding, it was rude of you to ignore her email. Perhaps if you apologize first, the friendship can recover. Dear Annie: To Frustrated Daughter-in-Law, whose mother-in-law doesnt get out and do things, has it ever occurred to her to ask her mother-in-law to go with her to these places? I am a widow, and after a lifetime of having someone with you, it is hard to do things by yourself. I prefer having someone I know go with me, but no one wants to be bothered taking me anywhere, so I sit at home. If she would take her mother-in-law to these places, Mom could see how much fun it could be, perhaps make a friend and then take it from there on her own.
