been a nearly two-decade quest for an-
swers and closure.

Health care

reform could

miss deadline

Exchanges must be set up

by Oct. 1 throughout US
Staff writer
The next important date for health care re-
form is looming, but one area insurance ex-
pert and one federal agency are not sure the
program will be on schedule.
Health insurance exchanges for individuals
called "marketplaces" are scheduled to go live
Oct. 1. They will enable individuals to make
coverage choices that could be implemented
Jan. 1. The law also calls for the establishment
of Small Business Health Options Programs to
be established on the same schedule.
It is the next implementation phase of the
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,
passed in 2010. By 2014, everyone must have
coverage or pay a tax. The law mandates new
minimum standards for employee coverage.
"The main purpose of the law is coverage;
the goal is to get people covered," explained
Richard Mackiewicz, vice president of sales
for Florida Insurance Brokers. "The cost of
covering the uninsured will drive everyone's
costs up."
Mackiewicz, speaking at the June Citrus
County Chamber of Commerce lunch, said
there are an estimated 35 million uninsured
and the law requires everyone to have health
insurance by 2014. Each state is supposed to
have a health insurance marketplace offering
four levels of coverage. States can decide how
they operate their marketplaces or use one
supported by the federal government.
The law calls for the establishment of state-
based Small Business Health Options Pro-
grams on the same schedule with the federal
government option. It also provides small
business tax credits.
According the Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS), 18 states have com-
mitted to setting up their own marketplaces
for individuals and another seven are part-
nering with HHS.
"Different states are looking at different
plans," he said. "Florida has not decided."
In theory, the marketplaces will be online
for consumer review by Oct. 1 and operational
by Jan. 1. But Mackiewicz said he does not
think the system will be ready in time for in-
dividuals or for small businesses.
His views were validated somewhat this
past week as the Government Accountability
Office issued a pair of reports questioning
whether the exchanges will be functioning by
Oct. 1. Both reports found that many state ac-
tivities remain to be completed, and some are
behind schedule.
The report on small business exchanges
said additional missed deadlines could affect
implementation. Both concluded whether the
exchanges will be ready by October 2013 can-
not yet be determined.
Commenting on the reports, HHS expressed
confidence that the exchanges will be open-
ing and functioning in every state by Oct. 1.

Special to the Chronicle
Think back to when you
were 7 years old. What did
you want to be when you
grew up? A firefighter? A
superhero? An astronaut?
For 7-year-old Eva Bel-
lon, her wish was always to
grow up to be a doctor And
now, after nearly a decade
of post-high school studies,
Bellon's wish has come
Bellon is a 2004 gradu-
ate of Dunnellon High
School. While many of her
classmates finished col-
lege long ago, Bellon re-
ceived her degree from the
Florida State University
College of Medicine on
May 18 and will begin her
three-year residency at
Daytona's Halifax Medical
Center shortly Her
specialty will be family
Bellon's family threw
her a graduation party
June 8 where both her
mother, Jeanie Bellon, and
grandmother, Lela Mae
Evers, spoke about Eva as
a child and described how
she was always motivated
to help others.
Jeanie Bellon related a
story of a Fourth of July
visit to Daytona years ago
when there was a fire-
works accident. Eva of-
fered her flashlight to
assist and vowed she
would be more of a help
The amount of work re-
quired to earn a degree in
medicine is enormous,
and Bellon seemed keenly
aware of that all through
her years in public school.
While most of the motiva-
tion came from within, she
credits several teachers
with inspiring her as a
"I took all of the AP
classes that I could," said
Bellon, who noted if DHS
had offered AP physics
and chemistry at the time,
she would have enrolled
in them.
As Bellon was earning
high marks in her high
school classes, she also in-
volved herself in as many
clubs as she could, includ-
ing National Honor Soci-
ety, the Academic Team,
Key Club, drama and the
yearbook staff.
"You have to remember
it only happens once, so
you have to make the best
of it," Bellon said of high
school. "Doing stuff like
yearbook, drama, A-Team
and Key Club just made
high school worth it; it's
why I loved high school.
But I was ready to leave it
behind and accomplish my
goals. High school was a
stepping stone to bigger
Bellon earned accept-
ance to FSU's honors pro-
gram after high school,
and with some scholar-
ships, along with money
she earned working during
summers and occasionally
during the school terms,
she was able to pay for her
entire undergraduate de-
gree herself.
In 2008, she graduated
cum laude with a degree
in biological science. At
FSU, Bellon remained ac-
tive in campus life, taking
advantage of the free con-
certs on campus and was
part of a co-ed profes-
sional fraternity Alpha Chi
Sigma. She also continued
her involvement in
community-service proj-
ects such as Relay for Life,
working with Boy Scouts to
help them earn their sci-
ence badges and as a camp
counselor at Camp Boggy
Creek for ill children.
After earning her bach-
elor's degree, Bellon took
10 months off to care for a
family member and pre-
pare for the MCAT before
entering the FSU's College

of Medicine. She com-
pleted her last two years of
medical school at the Day-
tona campus.
It was shortly after be-
ginning her first year of
medical school that Bellon
found herself experienc-
ing a very serious medical

setback: a massive bilat-
eral pulmonary embolism.
In December 2009, Bel-
lon broke her right ankle
playing Frisbee and had to
wear an ankle boot. Right
before her first test in Jan-
uary, she began to experi-
ence some calf pain.
Suspecting a clot, she
went to get it checked out
on a Wednesday, but tests
did not reveal a clot.
"I had my first unit
exam that Friday, so I
thought maybe it was just
anxiety," said Bellon, who
was also experiencing
shortness of breath. She
took that exam Friday, but
by Saturday, Bellon began
coughing up the blood that
was hemorrhaging into
her lungs. She spent eight
days in the hospital.
"I got through it with
God's help," said Bellon.
She was lucky to be alive,
and was offered a year off
without penalty, but chose
to continue.
"I feel like I aged 15 to
20 years," said Bellon, who
was on the blood thinner
Coumadin for eight
months and now must
wear compression stock-
ings at work and be care-
ful when sitting for long
"My memory was af-
fected, going without oxy-
gen," she added. "I went
from being an A/B-plus
student to fighting for Bs
and Cs, but I did it!"
"I never gave up, but
there were times when I
grew weary," said Bellon.

League of Women Voters is back

Staff writer

This is not your mother's
League of Women Voters.
That's the message of
the newly re-formed
League of Women Voters
of Citrus County that
meets every second Tues-
day at the Central Ridge
Library in Beverly Hills.
Library doors open at
10 a.m. and the meeting
gets started by 10:15 or 10:30.

"We had a league in Cit-
rus County, but it dis-
banded about 12 years ago,"
said league co-president
Susan Moore. "We've been
meeting since January,
gathering interest, and
now we're up to about 30
members almost as
many as Marion County"
There are 4,000 mem-
bers in chapters statewide.
Moore said her mother
had been a league presi-
dent, but times have

changed since those days.
"Resources for research
now are incredible," she
said. "I can get email and
Facebook alerts from state
and national leagues and
share that information with
members almost instanta-
neously so we can keep up
to date on critical issues."
She said another aspect
of a more modem league is
regular opportunities for
trips to Cuba for members to
learn about the history and

culture and share our cul-
ture with the Cuban people.
The main purpose and
goal of the League of
Women Voters is to pro-
vide nonpartisan informa-
tion to voters about issues,
presenting all sides with-
out making any judgments
or adding opinions.

Ham radio emergency system tested

Staff writer

Ham radio operators from
the Citrus County Ama-
teur Radio Club took part
in a nationwide emer-
gency communications
drill Saturday
It's called Amateur
Radio Emergency Field
Day and it tests the readi-
ness of operators to re-
spond in the event of a
call-up by local, state or

federal authorities.
By this afternoon,
radio amateurs will have
camped outside of the
Crystal River Mall for 24
hours, making contact
with some of more than
35,000 radio amateurs
gathered with their
clubs, groups or friends
in remote locations.
"I have been a ham for
over 20 years," said Alan
Wentzel, KE4TIO. "It's
one of those relaxing mo-
ments. When you are

tired of watching televi-
sion, you can turn the
radio on and talk to some-
one around the world."
They continue their
"calling" today until
2 p.m. They invite the
public to join them in con-
tacting someone around
the world on the radio.

A4 SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2013

Today's Birthday Many new oppor-
tunities will present themselves if you
focus on developing better relation-
ships. If everyone is willing to make
some adjustments, wonderful benefits
will result.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -Although
you might think your way of doing
things is far superior to your mate's, you
could be wrong. Keep an open mind.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Find a suit-
able way to openly discuss your griev-
ances. Nothing will change until you
speak up.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The poor
behavior of an arrogant friend doesn't
have to spoil a social event. Simply
smile and disengage yourself from this
person's presence, even it's just long
enough to calm down.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don't allow
yourself to get involved in a contest, es-
pecially if you're operating at a disad-
vantage. If you can't overcome the
odds, walk away and do something
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Jumping
to conclusions makes it difficult for you
to honestly evaluate someone else's
position. Don't make a judgment call
based on limited information.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -A
need for instant gratification could se-
verely distort your sense of values.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The
support from another that you were
counting on might not be forthcoming.
Make sure you have a Plan B ready.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Before
generously offering to help another
with a complicated endeavor, you need
find out what you're getting into.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If you
suspect a friend might throw a monkey
wrench in your plans, you don't have to
exclude him or her. Just let this person
know that the majority will rule.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Make
sure you don't take credit for doing
something in which you only played a
minor part. It could be an embarrass-
ment for you later.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) It's OK to
start looking ahead to the future, but
not to the degree that you totally ignore
what is going on right now. Both time
frames must be considered.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Pru-
dence is a must in the management of
your financial resources, but not to the
point that you deny yourself everything
that brings you pleasure.


Deen fans vent
outrage at network
Deen's fans are serving up
deep-fried outrage to the Food
Network for its decision to dump
the Southern comfort-food
queen after she acknowledged
using racial slurs in the past.
Outside Deen's Savannah
restaurant The Lady & Sons on
Saturday, fan Marilynne Wil-
son said she's stunned that the
cable network "jumped the gun"
by announcing it wouldn't
renew the celebrity cook's con-
tract about an hour after she
apologized in an online video
Meanwhile, Food Network's
Facebook page is bombarded
by comments from angry Deen
fans promising they'll change the
channel for good.

outspoken online, making

Gaza singer wins
'Arab Idol'
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -
Palestinians relished a rare mo-
ment of pride and national unity
Saturday after a 23-year-old wed-
ding singer from a refugee camp
in the Gaza Strip won "Arab Idol,"
a regional TV singing contest
watched by millions of people.
With the announcement of
Mohammed Assaf's victory,
fireworks lit up the sky over the

Thousands who had watched
the final show on outdoor

Today in

Today is Sunday, June 23, the
174th day of 2013. There are 191
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight:
On June 23, 1888, abolitionist
Frederick Douglass received one
vote from the Kentucky delegation
at the Republican convention in
Chicago, effectively making him the
first black candidate to have his
name placed in nomination for U.S.
president. (The nomination went to
Benjamin Harrison.)
On this date:
In 1757, forces of the East India
Company led by Robert Clive won
the Battle of Plassey, which effec-
tively marked the beginning of
British colonial rule in India.
Ten years ago: A divided
Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision,
allowed the nation's colleges and
universities to select students
based in part on race, as long as
race was not the determining factor.
Five years ago: Outraged at the
turmoil in Zimbabwe, the U.N. Se-
curity Council declared that a fair
presidential vote was impossible
because of a "campaign of vio-
lence" waged by President Robert
Mugabe's government.
One year ago: Syria and Turkey
desperately sought to ease ten-
sions following an incident in which
Syria shot down a Turkish recon-
naissance plane, saying the plane
had entered its airspace.
Today's Birthdays: Supreme
Court Justice Clarence Thomas is
65. "American Idol" ex-judge Randy
Jackson is 57. Actress Frances Mc-
Dormand is 56. Actress Selma Blair
is 41. Rock singer KT Tunstall is 38.
Rhythm-and-blues singer Virgo
Williams (Ghostowns DJs) is 38.
Singer-songwriter Jason Mraz is
36. Actress Melissa Rauch is 33.
Rock singer Duffy is 29. Country
singer Katie Armiger is 22.

without understanding in this life is
a heap worse than suffering when
you have at least the grain of an
idea what it's all for." Mary Ellen

I think it is important to let people

right; you are definitely doing it
My family has operated a pizzeria
in Queens for the past 32 years so I
think I know ,'- 1l iw' g about pizza.
My parents now live in Citrus
Hills and I visit them a few times a
year. We have patronized many
restaurants in Citrus County and
have found them wanting. My
parents called me several weeks ago
to tell me they had found a good
pizzeria in Florida. Needless to say I
,, 'it ,i "Yeah right." Over the years
we have tried every pizza place in
Citrus County and they were all bad
(Frozen dough balls, canned sauce,
poor service & bad d&or)
When we pulled into the parking
lot I ;,i,,,glJ "Here we go again".
However, being a former Marine I
did like the Marine flag proudly
displayed out front. I walked in the
door I T;,',,glit wow, what a shock.
The outside is absolutely deceiving
when compared to the open clean
interior dining area. The color
scheme & wallpaper were inviting
the overhead lattes work, paintings
and lighting created an ambiance
nicer ;Ji., expected.
A friendly server ;Jiat knew my
parents by name greeted us with a
smile, followed by the owners liaut
made us feel very welcome.
We had Garlic Knots T;lat were
outstanding & a Bleu cheese delight
salad with a nice glass of wine.
The pizza was true New York style
with a flavored crust and just the
right amount of olive oil needed to
blend the flavors of the pizza
toppings. EF L I, tlhigj was so good I
made my parents take me back the
next night.
The waitress recommended the
Chef Anthony's special Calzone. I
can say ;lia it was truly the best
Calzone I ever had.
Keep up the Good Work

dies at 74

Associated Press
The endangered Lakota
language has lost one of
its greatest supporters.
Albert White Hat, who
was instrumental in
teaching and preserving
the American Indian
language and translated
the Hollywood movie
"Dances with Wolves"
into Lakota for its actors,
died June 11 surrounded
by loved ones at a South
Dakota hospital. The 74-
year-old had prostate
cancer and other health
issues, according to fam-
ily and friends.
White Hat, a member
of the Rosebud Sioux
Tribe, authored several
books on writing and
reading Lakota, a lan-
guage fluently spoken by
fewer than 6,000 people.
The average age of those
speakers is 60, and less
than 14 percent of the
Lakota population in
South Dakota and North
Dakota where the vast
majority of Lakota
speakers live speak
their native tongue.
The first native Lakota
speaker to publish a
Lakota textbook and
glossary, White Hat was
considered an activist for
traditional ways of living,
according to his daugh-
ter, Emily White Hat. He
even created an orthog-
raphy for the language,
which he had taught
since 1975, and was head
of the Lakota Studies De-
partment at Sinte Gleska
University on the Rose-
bud Indian Reservation.
She said her father be-
lieved in sharing the
Lakota way of life with
both tribal members and
non-Native Americans.
He believed "there was
always an opportunity to
educate," Emily White
Hat said. "Even though
some questions may be
off the wall, he believed it
was better to take the op-
portunity than to be mis-
led about who we are."
One of those opportu-
nities came when White
Hat provided the trans-
lation for the Lakota di-
alogue in the 1990 film
"Dances with Wolves."
White Hat was born on
the outskirts of St. Fran-
cis, S.D., on the Rosebud
reservation. He spoke
only Lakota until his
teens, when he started
learning English in

She believes her sister
was murdered and thinks
her husband at the time
knows more than he is
"I know my sister is not
alive. I knew that when he
(Willis) walked back into
the house that night and I
asked him where my sister
was. The look on his face
and the fact that he never
answered me told me a
lot," Savoy said. She also
recalls having a vision of
her sister's eyes while they
were gone to the store.
Savoy believes that was
the moment harm befell
her sister.

mother's home shortly
after Margo's disappear-

"Right now, I just want
to be a voice for my sister,"
she said. "I cry a lot about
her and would like to see
her get some justice."

told police he walked to
the A to Z Beverages store

arrested and charged with
murder two months after
Margo reportedly van-
ished. Willis was convicted
in 1996 in that case and
has been in prison serving
a life term.
The Citrus County Sher-

in Margo's disappearance.
Savoy said detectives
promised to send investi-

Willis is being held to con-

Margo's picture on buses
so anyone with informa-

help solve the case.

For re-enactors, Gettysburg is pinnacle of hobby

Associated Press
The commander of the
Confederate army
marched to the front of the
makeshift classroom in
jeans and a dress blue
shirt to deliver battle plans
to his top lieutenants, com-
plete with a PowerPoint
presentation and laser
Gen. Robert E. Lee
would have been proud, if
not perplexed, in seeing
how Brian Gesuero took
charge of the preparations
for recreating the Battle of
This year's commemora-
tion has even more signifi-
cance, given that it's the
150th anniversary of the
Civil War, and Gettysburg
will represent the pinna-
cle of the re-enactment ca-
reers of thousands of Civil
War buffs.
"This will be special, dif-
ferent than the other ones.
It's the turning point of the
war," said Gesuero, 44, a
firefighter from Federals-
burg, Md. "This is our one
chance to do it right."
Actually, the 150th an-
niversary of Gettysburg is
so big that it's getting two
separate re-enactments.
A group called the Blue-
Gray Alliance expects
more than 10,000 re-enac-
tors to take part in its
event, June 28 to 30.
This group has also held
large-scale re-enactments,
in honor of the Civil War's
150th anniversary, at Vicks-
burg, Shiloh, Twin Rivers
and Wilson's Mill.
The National Park Serv-
ice official events start
June 30. The battle was
fought July 1 to 3, 1863, at
locations that have be-
come legendary to war
buffs, like Devil's Den, the
Wheatfield and Little
Round Top. Gettysburg
was the bloodiest conflict
of the Civil War, with more
than 51,000 casualties.
But the re-enactments
themselves occur on pri-
vate property, not the ac-
tual battlefield.

Associated Press
In this June 5 photo, a monument sits atop a ridge once held by Union troops, above
the field of Pickett's Charge, in Gettysburg, Pa. This year's Gettysburg commemoration
has even more significance, and Gettysburg will represent the pinnacle of the
re-enactment careers of thousands of Civil War buffs. Tens of thousands of visitors are
expected for the 10-day schedule of events that begin June 29 to mark the 150th
anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg that took place July I to 3, 1863.

Civil War re-enactors Jake Jeanette, left, and Bill
McElwee discuss plans June 1 for the re-enactment of
the Battle of Gettysburg at a field near Gettysburg, Pa.

The Gettysburg Anniver-
sary Committee has more
than 10,000 participants
registered for the second
gathering July 4 to 7 on
fields at the Redding Farm
north of town.
It's the group to which
Gesuero, along with fed-
eral counterpart Allen
Baldwin, methodically
presented re-enactment
The groups had dis-
cussed holding just one re-
enactment, similar to the

135th anniversary in 1998.
Back then, two events
were eventually combined
into one large battle.
Not this time around.
The topic's touchy to all
sides, but essentially the
groups couldn't reconcile
differences over how to
run the events.
The federal commander
for the Blue-Gray Alliance
event, Bob Minton, said his
group is proud to have se-
cured the Bushey Farm,
the site of the 135th an-

niversary re-enactment.
That piece of land contains
a long sloping ridge that re-
sembles the battleground
for Pickett's Charge, the fa-
mous confrontation on the
final day of the battle.
"It really gave us an op-
portunity for a wonderful
piece of ground," said
Minton, a Fostoria, Ohio,
resident who works for an
electrical supply company
Pride is also evident in
the voices of members of
the Gettysburg Anniver-
sary Committee.
Jake Jeanette, of Swans-
boro, N.C., was assigned
the distinction of depicting
Confederate Gen. Lewis
Armistead, who fixed his
hat to the point of his
sword in leading his
brigade before being mor-
tally wounded at a spot
considered the Confeder-
acy's northernmost ad-
vance in the war.
"If we can pull these
things off... it's going to be
something to remember,"
said Jeanette, wearing a
gray hat with a yellow "CS"

anniversary of the Civil War's Battle of Gettysburg
in Gettysburg, Pa. Each re-enactment group
expects more than 10,000 participants at their
events, with war buffs donning wool uniforms and
bearing weapons firing blanks appropriate for
the time.
* The re-enactments will take place on private
properties on the weekends bookending the actual
July 1 to 3 battle anniversary. Official events at
Gettysburg National Military Park begin June 30.

the case the last few
years," Meek told the edi-
torial board. "But if we or I
can be of assistance, we're
going to do that."
The sale of the hospital
would not only increase
the county's tax base, but
would correct other finan-
cial issues, Nemzoff told
CCHB trustees, the Citrus
Memorial Health Founda-
tion board of directors,
CMHS CEO Ryan Beaty,
other hospital staff and
members of the public who
attended the presentation.
"Who's going to guaran-
tee your debt?" Nemzoff
asked. "You're $53 million
in debt. You're at or near
default levels. You do not
want to go into default on a
bond issue, because you
will lose control of your hos-
pital to your bond holders."
The hospital employees'
pension plan is $30 million
"Someone needs to
guarantee those pen-
sions," Nemzoff said.
The proposal selected
would need to be from a
health care provider that
would offer financial
strength and organiza-
tional stability.
A hospital employee
asked whose responsibil-

ity it would be to make
sure the pension plan was
fully funded. Nemzoff said
the purchaser would write
a check that would include
enough money to fully
fund the pension.
The $30 million would
cover the gap that would
occur if all hospital em-
ployees retired at the
same time. Bill Grant,
CCHB attorney, said cur-
rently the pension is meet-
ing its obligations toward
employees as they retire.
Combining the $53 mil-
lion of long-term debt for
bond obligations and the
$30 million to fully fund
the pension plan, the hos-
pital has an obligation of
$83 million to deduct from
the purchase price. Pur-
chase proposals ranged
from $133 million from
Hospital Corporation of
America, to $120 million
from Health Management
Associates (HMA) to $99
million from Regional
Care Hospital Partners.
HMA also proposed a joint
venture as a separate bid
for $70 million. The fifth
proposal from Tampa Gen-
eral Hospital offered no
money for a merger, and it
would not assume long-
term debt and pension
funding responsibility.
All five bidders agreed
to assume the hospital's
existing policies and pro-
cedures with respect to in-
digent and charity care.
Nemzoff warned both
the hospital trustees and
the hospital foundation di-
rectors that they need to
accept a bid.

bloody skirmish.
The re-enactors are mainly a friendly,
chatty bunch, eager to indoctrinate any-
one curious about the hobby especially
for the 150th anniversary
Ken Janson is traveling from Chilo-
quin, Ore., as captain of a group that por-
trays Hurt's Battery, light artillery from
Alabama during the Civil War. But this re-
enacting crew is based on the West Coast,
and it's lugging two cannons and three
horses with them, too, to take part in both
Gettysburg events this year
"I figured driving that far, we might as
well do as much as we can," said Janson,
a retired teacher who will turn 66 while
at Gettysburg.
Janson said he has no emotional or po-
litical allegiance to the Confederacy any
more than he does to the Union. He's
simply fascinated by the period and the
complex nature of the war and its
"I admit it, I'm just a big kid and I love
making big noises with cannons," he said
in a phone interview.
But for him, re-enacting is more than
just about faux battles. He especially en-
joys the interactions with visitors to the
re-enactor camps and yes, the partici-
pants will stay in tents, too, as the real
soldiers did.
"Just to get people to think that (the
war) was way more complicated than
what people believed," he said.
Minton, the federal commander,
started getting involved around the time
the 1993 movie "Gettysburg" was re-

in danger of default on its
bonds," Nemzoff said. "The
hospital has limited access
to capital. They don't have
a lot to spend on its needs.
You can see from some of
these bids one of them
said we'll put $30 million
in, one of them said we'll
put $35 million in, one of
them said we'll put $50 mil-
lion in that's how much
money these companies
think your hospital needs.
You can't afford to put any
of those amounts in. You
don't have the cash and
you can't borrow any more
money You don't have ac-
cess to capital."
If all offers were re-
jected, the bidders would
go away and move onto an-
other venture, Nemzoff
said, warning that it would
be difficult to solicit more
proposals. As the taxing
authority, the CCHB would
have to raise its millage
rate, which is currently at
0.2450 mills to raise
$2,089,624, according to its
budget adopted by the
county. One mill equals $1
for every $1,000 of as-
sessed property value.
"If this hospital does not
recover and continues to
slide, there are going to be
two choices you as an or-
ganization are going to
have," Nemzoff said. "One
is to increase taxes and two
is to close the hospital."
However, Nemzoff said,
if raising taxes would solve
the problem, "they would
have done it already"

Don't want mug shot online? Then pay up, sites say

AP national writer

After more than seven
years and a move 2,800
miles across the country,
Christopher Jones thought
he'd left behind reminders
of the arrest that capped a
bitter break-up. That was,
until he searched the In-
ternet last month and
came face-to-face with his
2006 police mug shot.
The information below
the photo, one of millions
posted on commercial
website mugshots.com, did
not mention that the apart-
ment Jones was arrested
for burglarizing was the
one he'd recently moved
out of, or that Florida pros-
ecutors decided shortly af-
terward to drop the case.
But, otherwise, the digital
media artist's run-in with
the law was there for any-
one, anywhere, to see. And
if he wanted to erase the
evidence, says Jones, now
a resident of Livermore,
Calif., the site's operator
told him it would cost $399.
Jones said he was an-
gered by the terms of the
offer, but no more so than
scores of other people
across the country discov-
ering that past arrests -
many for charges eventu-
ally dismissed or that re-
sulted in convictions later
expunged make them
part of an unwilling, but
potentially enormous cus-
tomer base for a fast-
proliferating number of
mug shot websites.
With a business model
built on the strengths of
technology, the weak-
nesses of human nature
and the reach of the First
Amendment, the sites are
proving that, in the Inter-
net age, old assumptions
about people's ability to
put the past behind them
no longer apply
The sites, some charging
fees exceeding $1,000 to
"unpublish" records of
multiple arrests, have
prompted lawsuits in Ohio
and Pennsylvania by peo-
ple whose mug shots they
posted for a global audi-

ence. They have also
sparked efforts by legisla-
tors in Georgia and Utah to
pass laws making it easier
to remove arrest photos
from the sites without
charge or otherwise curb
the sites.
But site operators and
critics agree that efforts to
rein them in treads on un-
certain legal ground, made
more complicated because
some sites hide their own-
ership and location and
purport to operate from
outside the U.S.
"The First Amendment
gives people the right to do
this," said Marc G. Epstein,
an attorney in Hallandale,
Fla. who said he repre-
sents the operator of
mugshots.com, which lists
an address on the
Caribbean island of Nevis.
"I don't think there was
ever a First Amendment
that contemplated the per-
mutations of communica-
tion that we have now."
Operators of some sites
say they're performing a
public service, even as

they seek profit.
"I absolutely believe
that a parent, for instance,
has a right to know if their
kid's coach has been ar-
rested. ... I think the public
has a right to know that
and I feel they have a right
to know that easily, acces-
sibly and not having to go
to a courthouse," said
Arthur D'Antonio III, CEO
of justmugshots.com, a
Nevada-based site that
started in early 2012 and
now claims a database of
more than 10 million ar-
rest photos.
But critics are skeptical.
"I can't find any public
interest that's served if you
are willing to take it (a mug
shot) down if I give you
$500. Then what public in-
terest are you serving?,"
said Roger Bruce, a state
representative from the At-
lanta area who authored a
law, set to take effect July 1,
requiring sites to remove
photos free for those ar-
rested in Georgia if they
can show that charges have
since been dismissed.

Scott Ciolek, a Toledo
lawyer who last year
brought suit against four
sites on behalf of two
Ohioans dismayed to find
their arrest photos online,
said the mug shot publish-
ers are taking advantage of
people's embarrassment
to unfairly squeeze them
for profit.
"The individuals who
are victims of these extor-
tions want as little atten-
tion on them as possible, if
you know what I'm say-
ing," Ciolek said.
The mug shot sites are
just the latest ventures
harnessing the Internet to
aggregate information that
previously would have
taken considerable time,
trouble or expense for or-
dinary people to uncover.
That power underlies sites
like ancestrycom, which
compiles genealogical in-
formation including birth
and death certificates,
census and immigration
records and other public
documents in a forum that
makes it much easier than

previously possible for
Americans to trace their
family roots.
Arrest records are also
widely considered to be
public information and
have long been collected
by reporters making the
rounds of police stations
and courthouses. But be-
fore the advent of the web,
an arrest on a charge of,
say, disorderly conduct
might have been printed
in a local newspaper's po-
lice blotter and then
mostly been forgotten.
The mug shot sites' oper-
ators use "web-scraping"

programs to easily collect
information from scores of
police websites and as a
Texas lawsuit filed by one
site operator against an-
other shows, sometimes
even to snatch those same
photos from competitors.
What used to be strictly
local is now global, and a
new tension results: Re-
lease of information
widely regarded as neces-
sarily public is, in aggre-
gated form, viewed
as potentially violating
"Certainly the world has
changed in terms of the ac-
cessibility of historical in-
formation," said Jeff
Hermes, director of the
Digital Media Law Project
at Harvard University's
Berkman Center for Inter-
net & Society. "My concern
is that efforts to create a
so-called 'right to be for-
gotten' run the risk of be-
coming laws that allow
individuals to edit history,
and that's dangerous, es-
pecially if it winds up
being applied to public
governmental records."
But some of those whose
photos have turned up on
the sites say charging peo-
ple to erase the evidence
of an arrest is abusive.
Phillip Kaplan, one of
the two people who
brought the Ohio lawsuit,
said he thought he had
moved past the embarrass-
ment of June 2011 when
police, responding to com-
plaints of a loud porch-
front party he was
attending during the city's
Old West End festival,
charged him with failure

to disperse. Kaplan, who is
35, said he declined an
offer by prosecutors to
plead guilty to a lesser
charge, and eventually the
case was dismissed.
In the meantime,
though, Kaplan walked
into a convenience store to
find his mug shot on the
cover of the weekly Buck-
eyes Behind Bars, along-
side the headline "Hot
Summer for Sex Offend-
ers." The publication says
on its website that it
charges $59 to those
who've been arrested and
want to avoid having their
photo printed. Soon after,
friends told him his mug
shot was published on
some of the online sites
and later he was asked
about the arrest during a
job interview.
Kaplan said he under-
stands the value to the
public of publishing arrest
photos, particularly of sex-
ual predators.
"That makes sense," he
said, but not for lesser
charges. "I mean, should
there be a jaywalkers'
Jones, whose April 2006
arrest by sheriff's deputies
near Orlando, Fla., turned
up online, said he suspects
the availability of his mug
shot might be affecting his
search for employment.
"I've been putting out so
many r6sum6s, and peo-
ple's reactions are just
funny. They're really ex-
cited, they've seen my r6-
sum6 somewhere and
then all of a sudden it's
like I have an infectious
disease," said Jones, who
is 34 and now a college stu-
dent in California.
The lawsuit filed on Ka-
plan's behalf, though, does
not go after the websites for
posting the photos. Instead,
it accuses the sites of vio-
lating Ohio's publicity
rights law by wrongfully
using people's images for
commercial purposes.
Ciolek, the lawyer, said he's
fielded more than 20 calls a
day from people interested
in joining the suit since fil-
ing it last December
A separate suit by a Sick-
lerville, N.J., man, Dary-
oush Taha, filed in U.S.
District Court in Philadel-
phia in December, charges
that officials in Bucks
County, Pa., failed to re-
move a 1998 mug shot
taken after police inter-
vened in a parking lot dis-
pute between Taha and his
girlfriend. Taha accepted
placement into a program
called Accelerated Reha-
bilitative Disposition and
after completing commu-
nity service in 2000 his
record was automatically
expunged. But his photo
remained on the jail web-
site and in 2011 was repub-
lished by mugshots.com.
"Listen, the whole pur-
pose behind having your
records expunged is to
give you a second opportu-
nity when you make a mis-
take," said Alan
Denenberg, the lawyer for
Taha in the suit against po-
lice, other agencies and
the website. But Denen-
berg said that while he had
served the suit on a
Delaware firm that regis-
tered mugshots.com as a
limited liability corpora-
tion in the state, he has no
idea who owns the website
or where it operates.
The mugshots.com site
says it is owned by Open-
bare Dienst Internationale
LLC a name whose first
two words are Dutch for
"public service" and
lists an address in Nevis
that belongs to a different
corporate registration
agent. People who want to
remove their arrest photos
are directed to a link for a
partner, Unpublish LLC,
which lists the address of
yet another registration
agent, in the South Ameri-

can country of Belize. A
phone number for Unpub-
lish, listed on its Internet
domain paperwork, rings

to a fourth registry agent,
also in Belize.
Epstein, who says he
handles some public rela-
tions functions for the site
as well as providing legal
counsel, would not provide
details of its ownership or
location, and a message
left for the operator with
one of the Belize agents
was not returned.
"We know we're going to
be talked down. We under-
stand it. Nobody likes
meter maids, nobody likes
traffic tickets and nobody
likes mug shots, but we op-
erate legally and in the
realm of what we do, to-
tally accurately," Epstein
A competitor, mugshots
world.com, lists an address
in Russia, with a number
on its registration paper-
work that rings to a fax
D'Antonio, who said he
started justmugshots.com
while working as chief
technology officer of a
Minneapolis Web market-
ing company and recently
relocated to a Nevada city
he would not identify, was
otherwise forthcoming.
He said he started the
site after a friend asked for
help manipulating Web
searches to "push down" a
mug shot from his arrest
on an alcohol-related
charge. D'Antonio said
that, in the process of
doing so, he looked into
the law covering mug
shots, discovered they
were public information
and realized, with his com-
puter skills, that presented
a business opportunity.
But he acknowledges
that publishing the photos
and charging people to
take them down contra-
dicts the sentiment of
helping his friend. He said
he has tried to act respon-
sibly by removing photos
at no cost for those who
can show all charges have
been dismissed, they were
found not guilty, were
younger than 18 at the
time or for those who have
since died.
"Then it becomes a bal-
ancing act and it's a very,
very tough line to walk and
one that we absolutely take
very seriously, but there's
very little black and white
to it," D'Antonio said. He
said he expects the busi-
ness of aggregating and
publishing largely over-
looked public records to
evolve rapidly, and thinks
eventually his company
could partner with local
governments, doing work
now handled by the agen-
cies while offering them a
new source of revenue.
Some of the mug shot
sites list numerous affili-
ated sites, often breaking
down arrests by state.
Bruce, the Georgia legisla-
tor, said calls to numbers
listed on some sites were
answered by what sounded
like the same person,
prompting concerns that a
payment to erase a photo
from one site might prompt
the same photo to turn up
on another.
But Epstein, the Florida
lawyer, said the site he
represents is "not Whack-
amole-y. You don't hit the
head down in one portion
of the arcade game and it
pops up somewhere else.
That's not our model at
The new Georgia law at-
tempts to curb the for-
profit mug shot sites,
requiring them to remove
photos at no charge for

charges are dismissed, an
idea that site operator
D'Antonio said he sup-
ports. But the legislator ac-
knowledges the law's
protections are limited in
scope and its effectiveness
will become clear only
when it is tested in court.
Some of those whose ar-
rest photos have turned up
online, though, see little
recourse for their

Super full moon
shines brightly
permoon" rises this morning.
The biggest and brightest
full moon of the year graces
the sky early Sunday as our
celestial neighbor swings
closer to Earth than usual.
While the moon will ap-
pear 14 percent larger nor-
mal, sky watchers won't be
able to notice the difference
with the naked eye. Still, as-
tronomers say it's worth
looking up and appreciating
the cosmos.
"It gets people out there
looking at the moon, and
might make a few more peo-
ple aware that there's inter-
esting stuff going on in the
night sky," Geoff Chester of
the U.S. Naval Observatory
said in an email.
Some viewers may think
the supermoon looks more
dazzling, but it's actually an
optical illusion. The moon
looms larger on the horizon
next to trees and buildings.
The moon will come within
222,000 miles of Earth and
turn full around 7:30 a.m.
Eastern time, making it the
best time to view.

after a system-wide com-

Full service was restored

but the Dallas-based airline

Connell said. South Fork
Mayor Kenneth Brooke esti-
mated that 1,000 to 1,500
people were forced to flee.
Some business owners
were being allowed back
into South Fork during the
day Saturday to tie up is-
sues left unattended in the
rush to leave.
Officials, meanwhile,
closely monitored an arm of
the blaze moving toward the
neighboring town of Creede.
The blaze had been fu-
eled by dry, hot, windy
weather and a stand of
dead trees, killed by a bee-
tle infestation.

BAGHDAD A suicide
bombing inside a Shiite
mosque during evening
prayers and other attacks
north of Baghdad killed 23
people in Iraq on Saturday,
as officials announced pre-
liminary results for local
elections in two provinces
that showed the bloc of the
country's speaker of par-
liament in the lead.
The attacks are the lat-
est in a wave of killing that
has claimed more than
2,000 lives since the start

of April. It is the bloodiest
and most sustained spate
of violence to hit Iraq
since 2008.
The deadliest attack
happened after sunset
when a suicide bomber
blew himself up inside a
Shiite mosque in the vil-
lage of Sabaa al-Bour,
about 20 miles north of
Baghdad. It killed 14 and
wounded 32, police said.
The community used to
be a religiously mixed area
that was home to both Sunni
and Shiite Muslims, but the
Sunnis were displaced by

members of the Mehdi
Army Shiite militia during
the post-invasion wave of
sectarian killing that
peaked in 2006 and 2007,
according to police.
Many large religious
sites in Iraqi cities are sur-
rounded by concrete blast
walls and armed check-
points, but police said the
village mosque had no pro-
tective barriers.
At least five of the vic-
tims died in ambulances
as they made their way
from the remote village to
the nearest hospital in

BEIRUT Syrian gov-

their attack against rebel
strongholds north of the
capital, Damascus on Sat-

The fighting in Damascus

of 210 pounds to the dollar
compared with 47 when the

the 10th row, leaving the

Cars from art deco period exhibited in Nashville

Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. They are
long, low, sleek and sexy
Many of the cars at a new exhibit
called "Sensuous Steel" are one of a
kind. Others are or were owned by fa-
mous people. What binds them to-
gether is their art deco design and
the venue where they are showcased:
the Frist Center for the Visual Arts,
which was built in 1933-34 as the
city's main post office.
Many of the cars were never pro-
duction vehicles, but harken from a
time when an automobile was a per-
sonal expression.
A 1929 Cord L-29 Cabriolet sports a
tangerine hue called Taliesin. It was
owned by architect Frank Lloyd

Sensuous Steel opened June 14
and runs through Sept. 15.

Wright who said it was "becoming to
his house" of that name his sum-
mer home in Wisconsin.
A dark gray open-cockpit speedster
has no equal. It was built for Edsel
Ford in 1934 when Ford was the pres-
ident of the auto manufacturing com-
pany his father began. It's a model
40 but the coachwork is one of a kind.
It is on loan for the exhibition from
the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in
Grosse Point Shores, Mich.
The speedster, a 1934 Voison Type
C-17 Aerosport Coupe, and several

other vehicles in the collection are
what special curator of the exhibit
Ken Gross calls "bespoke cars."
"If you like it, then we'll build it for
you," Gross said of the way many of
these cars came into being.
That meant there were no presses
to form a long line of look-alike fend-
ers and body panels. In a process that
Gross likened to making medieval
armor, wooden forms were built and
sheet metal usually aluminum -
was meticulously hammered into the
desired shape by craftsmen. The
process could take more than 2,000
hours. The custom-made body was
then mated to a suitable chassis and
engine to fulfill the buyer's desires.
Make no mistake about these cars
being all show. There is muscle

We never know when our
lives might be changed
forever in an instant. Cars
are great machines for many rea-
sons, but they also can be very
deadly There is a member of the
Nature Coast Mustang club who
has an incredible life story and
love of cars, particularly Mus-
tangs. He also has a great positive
attitude after experiencing a trau-
matic event that would destroy
most of us.
Brian Fowler, who is currently
the vice president of the club, had
a life-changing car accident more
than 17 years ago. He was involved
in a very serious early-morning
crash in which his car caught fire
and burned a significant portion
of his lower body He then spent
six and a half months in the hospi-
tal fighting infections and recover-
ing from his injuries. Brian lost
his entire right leg and had severe
burns on his left leg and other
parts of his body He had numer-
ous painful skin-graft surgeries
and lots of physical therapy
Brian still has to deal with the
residual effects of the injuries,
mostly skin related, and some in-
ternal issues. He also has some is-
sues with strength, endurance and
gravity as his crutches can slip on
the most inopportune occasions -
although I must say that he han-
dles those crutches very well and I
think he can outrun me.
Originally from Florida, Brian
moved around a bit as a Air Force
brat and has been a "petrol head"
as long as he can remember, play-
ing with Hot Wheels cars and build-
ing car models as a kid. He still
builds model cars today. He has a
lightly modified 2008 Mustang that
he doesn't consider a "show car," al-
though it is a beautiful car It's his
daily driver but he usually keeps it
clean and looking good.
Brian has worked on his own
cars since he first started driving.
As a high school kid flipping burg-
ers, paying a repair shop was out
of the question, so he had to learn
to fix things himself. He still does
as much of the work on his car as
physically possible and does a
great job getting the car ready for
cruise-ins and shows. He has only
recently started showing his car.
At a show where there were more
than 300 participants, he won an
award getting second place in his
class, which is a difficult feat since
there were so many cars in his
class. When he went up to ac-
cepted his award, he was beaming
with a huge smile and the crowd
was cheering for him, more than
for any of the other winners be-
cause most of us knew it took him
much more effort to get his car in
"show clean" condition than the
rest of us.

D ear Annie: My
teacher friends
and I are hoping
you can help us out with
a problem that comes up
every year at graduation.
As physical education,
band and music teach-
ers, we are with the
same students
for several
years and de-
velop some

Wichita, Kan.
Dear Wichita: A gradu-
ation announcement re-
quires nothing more
than your best wishes.
(An invitation to a gradu-
ation is redundant be-
cause, as faculty, you are
already invited.) An invi-
tation to a party usually
necessitates a gift (if you
attend), and if you are in-
vited along with your
colleagues, you can give
a group gift. However,
many graduates deeply
appreciate a personal
letter from a teacher ex-


pressing positive
thoughts about the stu-
dent. That, too, is a gift
Dear Annie: I read the
letter from "Sick and
Tired of Being Sick and
Tired," who has been
battling lupus for 17
years and feels obligated
to share a
medical up-
date when
friends ask,
"How are
you?" I loved
her suggestion
of greeting
others with "It
is so good to
see you." What

When car rental


aren't honored

Associated Press

We're sorry, sir, but we
don't have any cars left
That was my unpleas-
ant welcome to Michigan
by Hertz.
I had a reservation.
They saw the reservation.
The problem: Hertz
hadn't actually saved me
a car
So here I was, just off a
plane in Kalamazoo, suit-
case in tow and no car. I
wasn't the only one
stranded and I later
learned from my cab
driver it happens
somewhat regularly
After the initial shock,
all that kept flashing
through my head was a
1991 Seinfeld episode
where a car rental firm
doesn't have Jerry's
reserved car.
"But the reservation
keeps the car here. That's
why you have the reserva-
tion," Seinfeld says. "You
know how to take the
reservation, you just don't
know how to hold the
reservation. And that's re-
ally the most important
part of the reservation:
the holding."
Reserving a car is dif-
ferent than almost any
other travel product
Airfare is typically non-
refundable once you pur-
chase a ticket Hotel rooms
can be canceled up to a
certain point usually 4
p.m. the night of arrival.
But there's typically no
penalty for reserving a car
and never picking it up.
That leaves the indus-
try with many more reser-
vations than actual
So just like airlines sell
more tickets on planes
than seats, car rental
agencies sometimes don't
have enough cars to meet
their demand.
"During the course of a
year, this phenomenon is
a rare occasion and oc-
curs less than 1 percent of
the time," Paula Rivera, a
spokeswoman for Hertz
Global Holdings Inc., par-
ent company of Hertz,
Dollar and Thrifty, said
via email.
If a reserved car class is
not available, it is Hertz's
policy to provide a com-
plimentary upgrade to the
next available car class.
In situations like mine

where there are no cars
left at the airport, Hertz
will let customers rent
from a competitor and
pay the difference, or pay
for a cab to and from your
hotel, asking you to return
the next morning when
more cars might be
The company will also
provide a $50 voucher for
a future rental.
Alice Pereira, a spokes-
woman for Avis Budget
Group, Inc., outlined a
nearly identical policy at
her company A represen-
tative for Enterprise
Holdings, the parent of
Alamo Rent A Car, Enter-
prise Rent-A-Car and Na-
tional Car Rental, did not
respond to numerous re-
quests for comment.
For me, a solution
wasn't so simple. Every-
body else in Kalamazoo
was out of cars and Hertz
said it would be days until
they got more vehicles.
I had an early meeting
for work the next day and
needed a car Luckily, the
airport in Grand Rapids,
Mich. 58 miles away -
did have some cars
available. An hour and
$150 cab ride later, I was
finally in a car.
When I returned the
car three days later, Hertz
took the $150 off my bill
and gave me one of those
$50 vouchers.
So what can you do to
prevent a similar fate?
Not much.
Hertz's Rivera told me
that for travelers whose
plans are concrete, they
can prepay for their rental
"which helps to ensure
availability upon arrival."
The company also lets
customers in some loca-
tions reserve specific
model cars, which
helps make sure you get
the right size vehicle.
Rates for those cars, how-
ever, are typically higher
than a generic "interme-
diate" or "compact"
It also pays to sign up
for the rental firms' loy-
alty program, which is
Rivera said members of
Hertz's Gold Plus Re-
wards program "by virtue
of their loyalty, are served
first." In my case, my
membership didn't help
- but I got the sense that
nothing would have.

Associated Press
A 2013 Honda Civic is shown in Detroit. Porsche and GMC have the highest-quality vehicles in a new survey of
U.S. car owners. But the survey suggests overall quality is falling because of glitches with new technology, like
navigation and voice recognition systems.

Car quality dinged by tech glitches

Associated Press

DETROIT Car buyers in-
creasingly want high-tech features
like voice recognition and naviga-
tion. But they're not very forgiving
of the car company when those
systems fail.
The top complaints in J.D.
Power's closely-watched survey of
new vehicle owners, released
Wednesday, involved technologies
that drivers are clamoring for.
Voice recognition systems either
didn't recognize commands or did-
n't work at all. Bluetooth systems
had trouble connecting with driv-
ers' phones.
The result: Just when automak-
ers had reached their highest-ever
levels of quality as they did in
J.D. Power's 2012 survey-- tech-
nology glitches are dragging their
scores down.
"I've had companies tell me they
would rather develop a new car
from the ground up than a new en-
tertainment system," said Tom
Mutchler, program manager of vehi-
cle interface at Consumer Reports.
This year's survey questioned
83,442 owners and lessees of 2013
model year vehicles in their first
90 days of ownership. They were
contacted at random through state
registration data.
Porsche, GMC, Lexus, Infiniti
and Chevrolet topped the rank-
ings, with owners reporting fewer
than 100 problems per 100 vehi-
cles. The worst-performing brands
were Scion, Fiat, Mitsubishi, Nis-
san and Mini. Their owners re-
ported 135 problems or more.
The industry average was 113
problems per vehicle. Quality has
gotten so good, industry-wide, that
the difference between the high-
est-ranking and lowest-ranking
brands in J.D. Power's survey

amounts to just two problems per
Brands that bore the brunt of
owner dissatisfaction often had
the newest gadgetry Cadillac's
newATS sedan is equipped with
the CUE touch screen infotain-
ment system, which has been
panned by critics who say it
doesn't always respond to the
touch. Cadillac fell 10 places in
the rankings. Nissan, which
dropped 17 spots, was hurt by
problems with features in its new
Altima. Car owners have com-
plained in online forums that the
Altima's voice recognition system
doesn't always understand them,
and the car's Bluetooth system has
trouble connecting to their
J.D. Power, which has been con-
ducting the survey since 1987, said
the top complaints used to con-
cern mechanical defects, such as
engine noise, that could be readily
fixed at a dealership. Now, owners
complain about design or technol-
ogy flaws that aren't easy for a
dealer to remedy For example,
wind noise the third most com-
mon complaint this year is re-
lated to the vehicle's design, not
its mechanical parts.
'"Automakers are investing bil-
lions of dollars into designing and
building vehicles and adding tech-
nologies that consumers desire
and demand. But the risk is that
the vehicle design, or the technol-
ogy within the vehicle, in some
cases may not meet customer
needs," said David Sargent, vice
president of J.D. Power's global
automotive business.
Sargent said automakers could
mitigate the problems by teaching
owners more about their high-tech
features or by providing more fre-
quent software updates.
Aaron Bragman, the Detroit

bureau chief for the car-buying
site Cars.com, said automakers
are held to a different standard
than smartphone makers.
"With your phone, that's a
$200 piece of electronics, so you
don't expect it to have the same
kind of reliability But the car is
the second most expensive piece
of equipment that most people
ever purchase, after their house,"
he said.
Car companies have little
choice but to keep giving con-
sumers the high-tech features they
expect, said Consumer Reports
Mutchler. He thinks the issues will
get sorted out in the end, possibly
with the intervention of tech
companies like Apple Inc.
"It's not that the touch screen is
bad or the technology is bad.
Some have just had really crummy
implementation" he said.
Some manufacturers boosted
their scores by simplifying infotain-
ment systems for drivers. Chrysler's
UConnect system is quick and intu-
itive, and its features are duplicated
on hard knobs and buttons, so driv-
ers don't rely entirely on a smudgy
touch screen, Bragman said. Audi
lets drivers control functions using
a knob near the cup holders. Audi,
Chrysler and Dodge all moved up in
this year's survey compared with
last year
While touch screen systems that
control the radio, climate controls
and other features are cheaper
than those with knobs and buttons,
Bragman expects manufacturers
to back off them a little and re-
place the hardware. That way, if
the screens go out, drivers can still
have access to their controls.
Ford has said it plans to
reintroduce dials and knobs after
getting dinged for the quality
of its MyFordTouch dashboard

Brian has such a great attitude and sense of humor
dealing with his handicap. He often jokes about two-
legged people and even his email address contains a
bit of humor as he tagged himself "monopod."
CAR JOKE A car mechanic received a repair
order that read: "Check for clunking sound when
going around corners". So he took the car out on a test
drive and, sure enough, whenever he went around a
corner, he heard a clunk. However, he quickly located
the problem and returned the repair order to the serv-
ice manager with the notation: "Removed bowling ball
from trunk."

Myers' grand slam not enough for Rays

Yankees beat

Tampa Bay 7-5

on Wells'double

Associated Press
NEW YORK Wil Myers ac-
complished a feat that Yankee
Stadium hadn't seen in more
than 33 years.
It wasn't enough for the
Tampa Bay Rays to win after
their bullpen blew a late lead.
Myers hit a grand slam for his
first career home run, but the
New York Yankees scored four
times in the seventh inning for a
7-5 victory Saturday
The Rays trailed 3-1 in the

sixth when CCu abathia (8-5) in-
tentionally walked Evan Longo-
ria with two outs to get to Myers,
one of baseball's top prospects.
The rookie came in hitting
.190 in five games since he was
called up from the minors at the
beginning of the week. He'd had
exactly one hit in four straight
games before going 3 for 4 on
Saturday in his first start as a
designated hitter
Longoria was 2 for 2 with a
double and a solo homer that
had accounted for the Rays'
lone run when the Yankees in-
tentionally walked him. On a 1-
2 count, Myers hit a high fly to
center Brett Gardner jumped
at the fence and the ball
bounced off the webbing of his
glove and into the stands,
though it appeared to already

be over the wall when ne
touched it.
"It was just awesome to be
down two strikes and the crowd
cheering and to be able to put a
swing like that on it," Myers
said. "Just a cool experience."
The last time Yankee Sta-
dium was the site of a visiting
player hitting a grand slam for
his first homer was 1980, when
Detroit's Ricky Peters did it.
With the Rays leading 5-3,

'Hawks swoop in

Associated Press
Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy, center, celebrates with center Jonathan Toews and defenseman Duncan Keith after
scoring a goal Saturday against the Boston Bruins in the second period during Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup Rnals in Chicago.

Kane scores twice to put Chicago one win away from Stanley Cup title

Associated Press
CHICAGO Patrick Kane and the
Chicago Blackhawks have that look again,
and another Stanley Cup is within reach.
Kane scored two goals, Corey Crawford
made 24 saves and the Blackhawks beat
the Boston Bruins 3-1 on Saturday night
to take a 3-2 lead in the finals.
Kane had a terrific postseason when
Chicago won it all in 2010, including the
winning score in a 4-3 overtime victory in
Philadelphia that secured the title. Now
he's picking up steam as the Blackhawks
move closer to another championship, col-
lecting seven goals in the last seven games.
Dave Bolland added an empty-net
score and Jonathan Toews had two assists
before leaving with an injury The captain
took a big hit in the second period and did
not play in the third.
The Bruins also lost one of their key play-
ers when Patrice Bergeron was injured in
the second. It was unclear what happened
to the star center, but the team said he was

taken to a hospital for observation.
Game 6 is Monday night in Boston.
Zdeno Chara scored in the third period
for Boston, which lost consecutive games
for the first time since the first round
against Toronto. Tuukka Rask made 29
saves, keeping the Bruins close while they
scrambled to generate quality chances.
Chara got a nice pass from David Krejci
from behind the net and beat Crawford on
the glove side to make it 2-1 at 3:40 in the
third period. The whistling slap shot by
the big defenseman came after he was on
the ice for five of Chicago's goals in the
Blackhawks' 6-5 overtime victory Wednes-
day night.
The location of Chara's third postsea-
son goal brought to mind the glove-side
difficulties for Crawford in Game 4. But
he held up just fine coming off the worst
postseason game of his career
He gloved Daniel Paille's slap shot
early in the third, and the Blackhawks
helped their embattled goaltender by
turning up the pressure on Rask after the

Bruins cut it to one. Kane forced Rask to
make a couple of nice stops, and Michael
Frolik also made a run to the net.
The Blackhawks survived one last push
by the Bruins after they pulled Rask, and
the crowd of 22,274 roared when the over-
head videoboard showed the No. 1 and the
Stanley Cup on the screen, signifying the
team is one victory away from its fifth title.
Boston and Chicago returned to the ice
three days after they played the highest-
scoring game in this year's NHL playoffs.
There were five goals in the second pe-
riod alone, matching the total from the
previous two games combined, and Brent
Seabrook's overtime score lifted the
Blackhawks to the series-tying victory
It was a marked departure from the first
three games of the finals, and raised ques-
tions about what the play would be like in
the last part of the series. The answer, at
least in Game 5, was a return to the strong
team defense and disciplined play It
meant little room to maneuver in both
offensive zones.

Rey hits for cycle

vs. Crystal River

in 26-14 victory

leading the Dunnellon 9 and 10
Baseball Little League All Stars to
a 26-14 District 15 victory over

ting a single, double, triple and an
inside-the-park three-run home
run in that order

Dunnellon manager Ryan
Townsend said. "He is fast for a big
guy He delivered. We have to play
hard to beat Crystal River"

Giants right fielder Hunter Pence
made a diving catch to rob Placido

lowed one run over eight sharp in-
nings, Adrian Gonzalez ended a wild
Edinson Volquez's no-hit bid with a
homer in the sixth and the Los Ange-
les Dodgers beat the San Diego
Padres 6-1.
In his first game in San Diego since
breaking his collarbone in a brawl with
Carlos Quentin, Greinke had a season-
high eight strikeouts. He allowed four
hits and only pitched to two batters over
the minimum through seven innings in
his longest outing of the season.
Hanley Ramirez homered into the
third deck in left field and the Dodgers
capitalized on several Padres miscues
to snap a three-game losing streak.


Tigers 10, Red Sox 3
DETROIT Max Scherzer won his
11th straight decision to start the sea-

son and Victor Martinez hit a first-in-
ning grand slam to lead the Detroit
Tigers to a 10-3 victory over the
Boston Red Sox.
Scherzer (11-0) allowed two runs in
the first, including a towering solo
homer by David Ortiz, but Martinez's
drive put the Tigers ahead to stay.
Martinez also hit an RBI double in
the fifth, and Scherzer shut down
Boston after the first. He allowed two
runs and six hits in seven innings.

Blue Jays 4, Orioles 2
TORONTO Jose Bautista hit a
tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning
and the Toronto Blue Jays won their
10th straight game, beating the Balti-
more Orioles 4-2.
Maicer Izturis hit a solo homer in
the fifth and Bautista had a two-run
drive in the eighth for Toronto, on its
longest winning streak since a 10-
game run late in 2008. The Blue Jays,
who are 14-4 this month, are one vic-
tory from matching the franchise
record. Toronto had 11-game winning
streaks in 1987 and 1998.

White Sox 3, Royals 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -Alejandro
De Aza drove in Jordan Danks with a
sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, sending
the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory
over the Kansas City Royals.
Jesse Crain (2-1) got through a
shaky eighth inning for the White Sox,
putting a runner on third with one out
and then leaving him there. Addison
Reed handled a perfect ninth for his
21st save.
Dayan Viciedo led off the ninth with
a single off Aaron Crow (3-3), and Jeff
Keppinger drew a walk to reach base
for the fourth time.

Indians 8, Twins 7
CLEVELAND Michael Bourn had
three hits and three RBIs to help
Corey Kluber win his third consecutive
start as the Cleveland Indians won
their fourth straight with an 8-7 victory
against the Minnesota Twins.
Cleveland took advantage of five
first-inning walks to score six runs.
Jason Kipnis added three hits to pace
the Indians, who are 8-2 since losing
eight in a row.
Kluber (6-4) gave up three runs in
5 2/3 innings. The right-hander has al-
lowed four earned runs in 21 2/3 in-
nings in his last three starts.


Astros 4, Cubs 3
CHICAGO Ronny Cedeno's
squeeze bunt scored Justin Maxwell
with the tiebreaking run in the ninth in-
ning to lead the Houston Astros over
the Chicago Cubs 4-3.
J.D. Martinez tied the game with a
three-run homer in the sixth for Houston.
Jose Cisnero (2-0) pitched two
scoreless innings for the win, escap-
ing a bases-loaded jam in the eighth.
Jose Veras earned his 15th save in 18

Rangers 4, Cardinals 2
ST. LOUIS Nelson Cruz got the
decisive hit for the second straight
game with a two-run homer in the third
inning and Martin Perez prevailed in a
matchup of rookie starters as the Texas
Rangers beat the St. Louis Cardinals.
Shelby Miller (8-5) allowed two
homers for the second time in three
starts and didn't make it out of the sixth.
A.J. Pierzynski also hit a two-run
homer for Texas, which goes for a
three-game sweep on tonight with
Nick Tepesch (3-6, 4.84) facing Adam
Wainwright (10-4, 2.37).

Police search Hernandez's home again

Associated Press

Mass. State police offi-

home of New England Pa-
triots tight end Aaron Her-
nandez again Saturday as

Aaron Hernandez returns to
his home Friday in North At-
tleboro, Mass. State police of-

home of the New England Pa-
triots tight end again Saturday
as they continue to investi-
gate the killing of a semi-pro
football player whose body

Associated Press

they continue to investigate
the killing of a semi-pro
football player whose body
was found nearby
The search of Hernan-
dez's sprawling home and
vehicle in North Attleboro
began in the afternoon
lasted for more than three
hours and involved several
officers, including one with
a crowbar, and locksmiths.
Detectives and uniformed
officers who searched the
home, its backyard and
playhouse did not comment
to reporters on what they
were looking for or what
caused them to return to the
house located not far from

where the Patriots practice.
Police have previously
searched in and around the
home as they try to figure
out who killed Odin Lloyd.
A jogger found Lloyd's
body in an industrial park
about a mile from Hernan-
dez's home on Monday
Family members said Fri-
day that Lloyd had been dat-
ing the sister of Hernandez's
fiancee for about two years.
They said the two men were
friends who were together
the night Lloyd died.
Authorities have ruled
Lloyd's death a homicide.
A spokeswoman for the
Bristol District Attorney's of-

fice declined to comment on
the investigation Saturday A
state police spokesman re-
ferred questions to the dis-
trict attorney's office.
An attorney for Hernan-
dez has said he would not
comment on the searches.
Police in nearby Provi-
dence, R.I., said they had as-
sisted Massachusetts state
police and North Attlebor-
ough police with activity re-
lated to the Hernandez
investigation at a strip club
named Club Desire. It was
unclear if they believed
Lloyd and Hernandez might
have been at the club in the
days before Lloyd died.



No close contest in men's flag football

Special to the Chronicle

The men's flag football
league kicked off three
more contests Thursday
night at Homosassa Area
Recreation Park.
Game 1
Pink 46, Orange 22
Although the Orange squad
played hard and brought a full
team, Pink came to win and
that is what it did in its 24-point
Game 2
Blue 37, Purple 20
The contest started off with

Blue scoring the game's first
two touchdowns.
Purple seemed a little off its
game but answered with a
touchdown of its own.
Blue, though, was just too
much in claiming a 17-point
Game 3
Green 32, Gold 0
Green came out on fire
both offensively and defen-
sively, never letting its oppo-
nent get anything going.
The outcome was never in
doubt as Green pitched an
impressive shutout against

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade jumps to dunk the ball during the second half in Game 7 of the NBA
Finals on Thursday against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami.

Not 100 percent

Wade needed

knee drainedfor

Game 7 ofFinals

Associated Press

MIAMI Dwyane Wade's
knee problems were more trou-
blesome during the playoffs
than he ever acknowledged.
In an interview with The As-
sociated Press, Wade revealed
Saturday that his right knee
pained him so much that he
contemplated asking to play
limited minutes in Game 7 of
the Eastern Conference finals,
and that his left knee was
drained and required about
eight hours of game-day ther-
apy just so he could play in
Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
"I went through a lot," said
Wade, who's now a three-time
NBA champion. "But I'm at
peace now."
Wade also received platelet-
rich plasma therapy late in the
regular season to combat three
bone bruises around his right
knee, which was his biggest
source of frustration and pain
during the playoffs. Wade said
two of the bruises healed, but a
third directly under the
kneecap remained a big prob-
lem, especially since that area
was also affected by tendinitis.
Wade underwent an MRI to
rule out additional problems
during the East finals against
Indiana, and said he was driv-
ing into a meeting with Heat
coach Erik Spoelstra before
Game 7 of that series -not long
after saying in the immediate
aftermath of the Game 6 loss to
the Pacers that he needed the
ball more to tell him that he
felt he should only play short
minutes because his ineffec-
tiveness was hurting the team.

Spoelstra had other ideas, and
Wade decided to scrap his plan.
"I felt like if I was going to be
playing the way I was playing,
and hurting the way I was hurt-
ing, I wasn't going to be able to
help us move on to the next
round," Wade said. "I was
going to say play me short min-
utes only, and give Mike Miller
and guys other opportunities.
But I came into the meeting,
and all Spo was about was giv-
ing me more opportunities and
getting me ways to be more
successful. So I was like, 'Well,
changed my mind."'
Following the MRI that was
done late in the Indiana series,
Wade said the team's athletic
trainers amended his treat-
ment plan slightly, and he
started seeing immediate im-
provement. He scored 21
points in the East-clincher
against the Pacers, then scored
a total of 57 points by far his
best two-game stretch of the
playoffs in Games 4 and 5 of
the NBA Finals against the San
Antonio Spurs.
But early in Game 6 of the
title series, Wade's collided
with the Spurs' Manu Ginobili.
Before long, Wade's surgically
repaired left knee, which kept
him out of last summer's Lon-
don Olympics, had swollen up
"like a coconut."
He needed treatment during
the game, even missing the start
of the second half. Wade got a
large amount of fluid drained
from the knee on Wednesday,
then got more than three hours
of treatment at the arena
Thursday morning and about
4 1/2 more hours of work done
in the afternoon, going almost
all the way up to the moment
the Heat took the floor to warm
up for Game 7.
Wade played 39 minutes in
the finale, scoring 23 points on
11 for 21 shooting.
"We know what he was deal-

ing with," Spoelstra said after
Game 7. "Really, he should be
commended for being out there
and doing whatever it takes,
putting himself out there for
criticism, possible criticism, be-
cause he wasn't 100 percent.
And he just helped us win. That
was the bottom line. It was a
selfless effort for two months.
And some players probably
wouldn't have played."
Wade said the right knee pain
was at times the second-worst
thing he's dealt with, injury-
wise, in his 10-year career, be-
hind only the shoulder he
dislocated in 2007 in an awk-
ward collision with then-Hous-
ton forward and current Heat
teammate Shane Battier.
The late-season knee prob-
lems took some shine off a year
where Wade averaged 21.2
points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.1 as-
sists on a career-best 52 percent
shooting, yet still had his skills
often questioned. Only Heat
teammate LeBron James, Okla-
homa City's Russell Westbrook
and the Los Angeles Lakers'
Kobe Bryant averaged as much
in all three of those categories
this season as Wade did.
"The toughest part of it is,
you work all season to get
healthy coming off of knee sur-
gery," Wade said. "And when I
finally got the way, everybody
saw in my play that I was play-
ing great, some of the best bas-
ketball in the role I have on this
team. Then I get the bone
bruises, and something I
worked hard for was getting
taken away, and I dealt with it
for three months. It was disap-
pointing, frustrating. It hurt. I
was able to mask it some nights.
Some nights, not"
In the end, it was all worth-
while. Wade will soon be getting
his third ring- "3 for No. 3," as
the shirts many of his friends
wore amid the Heat celebration
pointed out.

Watson drops into 3-way tie at Travelers

Associated Press

CROMWELL, Conn. Bubba Watson
made three bogeys in his last six holes
Saturday to help create a three-way tie
after three rounds at the Travelers
Watson, Graham DeLaet, who tied for
the low round of the day with a 65, and
Charley Hoffman are all at 10-under par
heading into Sunday's final round at the
TPC of River Highlands. Watson shot an
even-par 70.
Justin Rose, less than a week after his
U.S. Open victory, sits at 7-under par and
in a tie for seventh place after a second
straight 68.
Watson made three birdies on his

opening nine holes and was ahead by
four shots after the third. But bogeys on
Nos. 13, 15 and 17 brought the 2011 Mas-
ters champion back to the field.
Watson, who won the 2010 Travelers, is
trying to become the seventh player to
win this event at least twice. Arnold
Palmer and Phil Mickelson have also
done it.
Lewis leads group atop NW
Arkansas Championship
ROGERS, Ark. Stacy Lewis made four
straight birdies and eight overall to shoot a 6-

players atop the leaderboard at 10 under after
the second round of the LPGA NW Arkansas

Lewis, the world's No. 2 player, earned an
unofficial win at the rain-shortened event as
an amateur in 2007. She is the local favorite
this week, having played collegiately at
Chie Arimura and Beatriz Recari both
equaled Lewis' 65 and are tied entering the
final round with So Yeon Ryu.
I.K. Kim and defending champion Ai
Miyazato tied for the lowest round of the day,
each shooting a 7-under 64.
First-round leader Mika Miyazato shot a 70
and is three shots back.

GLENVIEW, Ill. Craig Stadler grabbed the

outright lead at the Encompass Championship
on Saturday, birdieing three of the four par-5s in
a 7-under 65 Saturday that put him two shots
ahead of Bob Tway and Jeff Sluman.
Stadler's second round at North Shore
Country Club included an inward nine of 4-
under 32 that left him at 12-under 132. Tway
also scored 65 and Sluman had 66 that in-
cluded eight birdies and two bogeys.
David Frost was fourth three strokes back
after a 67 that included six birdies.
Steve Pate, Mark Calcavecchia, Tom
Lehman and Bernhard Langer are tied for fifth
at 8 under. Calcavecchia and Langer added
69s to their opening 67s, while Pate and
Lehman scored shot 66 in the second round.
Stadler had a share of the overnight lead
with a Langer and Duffy Waldorf.

17th major on tap for Serena?

Wimbledon starts

on Monday

Associated Press

LONDON Nothing drives
Serena Williams the way disap-
pointment does.
"It's the biggest factor for me.
Like, if I lose, all hell breaks
loose, literally Literally! I go
home, I practice harder, I do
more," she said. "I don't like to
lose. ... I hate losing more than I
love winning. It could be a game
of cards I don't like it. I really
don't like it"
Well, the way Williams has
been playing tennis lately, there's
been very little not to like. When
Wimbledon starts Monday, she
will be an overwhelming favorite
to win her sixth title at the All
England Club and second in a
row. Williams enters the grass-
court Grand Slam tournament
43-2 in 2013 and on a 31-match
winning streak, the longest on
the women's tour in a single sea-
son in 13 years.
"It happens in sports: You're
going to lose. I learned that
you're not going to win all of
them. And there have been a few
matches that I wasn't disap-
pointed in," said Williams, who
at 31 is the oldest player to be
ranked No. 1 in WTA history
"But there were some that I
was disappointed in," she added,
"and it's actually helped me to
get better."
Case in point: A little more than
a year ago, Williams arrived at the
French Open unbeaten for the
season on red clay and anticipat-
ing a charge at the title. Instead,
she lost in the first round, the only
opening-match exit from a major
tournament in her career
"It really was a shock for her.
She really worked on rebuilding
herself to become perhaps
stronger than ever," said Patrick
Mouratoglou, the French coach
who began collaborating with
Williams shortly after that defeat
"The more you eat, the hun-
grier you get," Mouratoglou said.
"When you win, when you
achieve the exceptional, you
don't want it to stop."
Since that dark day at Roland
Garros, Williams is 74-3, includ-
ing trophies at three of the past
four Slams and the WTA Cham-
pionships, plus gold at the Lon-

don Olympics.
That run of nearly uninter-
rupted success began 12 months
ago at Wimbledon, and most re-
cently resulted in her first
French Open championship in 11
years, with a straight-set victory
over defending champion Maria
Sharapova. That was Williams'
13th consecutive win against
Sharapova; their rivalry took a
nasty off-court turn Saturday,
when Sharapova's pre-Wimble-
don news conference included a
verbal shot at Williams.
Sharapova was asked about a
recent Rolling Stone article
where the author surmised that
critical comments by Williams
directed at an unnamed, top-five
player were referring to Shara-
pova. Williams is quoted as say-
ing: "She begins every interview
with 'I'm so happy I'm so lucky'
- it's so boring. She's still not
going to be invited to the cool
parties. And, hey, if she wants to
be with the guy with a black
heart, go for it."
"At the end of the day, we have
a tremendous amount of respect
for what we do on the court,"
Sharapova said Saturday "I just
think she should be talking about
her accomplishments, her
achievements, rather than
everything else that's just getting
attention and controversy"

Williams has been linked to
Mouratoglou, but neither has
confirmed their relationship ex-
tends beyond tennis. When
Mouratoglou was asked about
the topic at the French Open, he
smiled and replied: "Sorry I
don't understand the question."
Between the lines, given the
way Williams' best-in-the-game
serve and generally dangerous
strokes only get better on the
slick grass, it's difficult to pick
against her during the upcom-
ing fortnight.
There are four men, mean-
while, who all have real reason to
like their chances, a quartet
that's combined to collect 32 of
the past 33 Grand Slam tourna-
ments: defending champion
Roger Federer, owner of a record
17 Grand Slam titles, including
seven at Wimbledon; No. 1-
ranked Novak Djokovic, who
won Wimbledon in 2011; two-
time champion Rafael Nadal,
whose record eighth French
Open trophy this month raised
his career haul to 12 major titles;
and Andy Murray, the runner-up
last year at the All England Club
and reigning U.S. Open cham-
pion who wants to give Britain its
first male title winner at Wimble-
don since Fred Perry in 1936.
Federer and Nadal could meet
in the quarterfinals, with the win-

ner potentially getting Murray in
the semifinals, because all three
wound up on the same side of the
draw. Djokovic, meanwhile, is on
the other half and at most would
need to beat only one of that other
trio to earn the championship.
Some people would say that I
was lucky with the draw,"
Djokovic said Saturday "But
look, you know, it's a Grand
Slam, so I don't think that there
is any easy way to the title."
Williams, though, stands alone
atop the women's game at the
Her serve, which she can con-
sistently hit at more than 120
mph (190 kph), is clearly unri-
valed, and she leads the tour this
season in aces, service games
won, break points saved and first
serve points won. Her return is
terrific, too, and Williams leads
the way in first serve return
points won, while ranking sec-
ond in return games won.
"I don't see a weakness,"
three-time Wimbledon cham-
pion John McEnroe said. "She's
playing the best tennis of her ca-
reer. She's not only in the best
place I've ever seen, I think she's
the best player that's ever lived.
I said that a while ago, but she's
cementing it in everyone's mind.
She's just a level above anyone.
There's no doubt about it"

Driver dies in 24 Hours of Le Mans race

Associated Press

SONOMA, Calif. As Jamie
McMurray turned a corner on
the season with a string of solid
finishes, he picked Sonoma
Raceway as an upcoming track
he was looking forward to racing.
It seemed like a strange se-
lection considering McMurray
has just one top-10 finish at
Sonoma in 10 career starts.
But he showed his comfort
level on the 1.99-mile road
course Saturday with a surprise
pole-winning run. He topped
Marcos Ambrose, a race fa-
vorite, with a lap at 94.986 mph.
"I felt like I've always raced
really well here," McMurray
said of choosing Sonoma as a
place he thought he could win
this year.
"For me, the last restarts have
really got me. When you have a
restart at this track, guys go
from top-five to 30th in about 20
seconds. It can be a track that if
you have a caution at the end,
you can lose a lot."
It was McMurray's ninth ca-
reer Sprint Cup pole, but first of
the year. He also won the pole at
Sonoma in 2007.
Ambrose wound up second
with a lap at 94.924 in
NASCAR's first use of the group
qualifying format. Both Am-
brose and McMurray were to-
gether in the final group, and
Ambrose initially had the pole
position. But McMurray
snatched it away, and Ambrose
made a second attempt to grab
it back but came up just short.
"The motor quit running com-
ing to the green flag, so I lost all
of my momentum coming to the
green flag," Ambrose said. "I
thought about just bailing out of
that lap and trying to roll
around for a second lap, but I
wasn't sure about engine tem-
peratures and the tires go away

ready stressed them out and if I
could have made up time, so I

It's not the first engine issue
Ambrose has had at Sonoma:
He was dominating the race in
2010 and leading under caution
when he turned his engine off
and lost the race. So he was fu-
rious when an engine problem
spoiled what he thought would
be a pole-winning run for
today's race.
"I pretty much lost my mind
there and was really mad and

just had to get my composure
back to finish the lap off," he
said. "It was good enough for the
front row, so I'm proud of that
but disappointed obviously that
we didn't get the pole position."
Carl Edwards qualified third
and was followed by teammate
Greg Biffle as Ford drivers took
three of the first four spots. Al-
though it was Edwards' best
qualifying effort at Sonoma, he
had thought the new format
meant he'd get more laps in and
have a shot at the pole.

minimum merits

STEVE STACKHOUSE/Special to the Chronicle
Minimum flows have been set for the Chassahowitzka (above) and Homosassa rivers. The Southwest Florida Water Management
District uses minimum flows and levels (MFL) in its water-use permitting program. MFLs are meant to ensure withdrawals do not cause
significant harm to water resources or the environment. In the case of this water management district, "significant harm" is defined as
a 15 percent loss of habitat.

State failing to protect springs from contributors ofpollution

Special to the Chronicle

Mr Greg Munson, a Florida
Department of Environ-
mental Protection (FDEP)
deputy secretary, presented
commentary in the Citrus
County Chronicle on June 11, 2013 (Other
Voices), and made his case for how the
FDEP and Gov. Rick Scott are protecting
our springs. He explained the theory of
research, regulation and restoration, sug-
gesting this leads to results. The water
management district programs to develop
minimum flows and levels (MFL) were
touted with explanation that these rules
will result in recovery plans to restore
spring flows.
Mr Munson, in the absence of facts,
theory is fine.
"Recovery plans" are not generic band-
ages. Such need, as you suggest, is a tacit
admission the FDEP has failed its mis-
sion. If the state had been diligent in pro-
tecting our surface- and groundwater
resources, we would not be having this
MFL rules adopted by water district
governing boards are law in Florida. As
part of that rule development, a recovery
plan may result from technical analysis
by water district staff, but it is a plan spe-
cific to a particular water body
Absent a recovery plan specific to an
adopted rule, an MFL rule determination
in and of itself absolutely will not result
in restoration of flow volume to a spring
system. Recovery plans are so rare they
are a novelty.
Evidence of that is found in recently de-
veloped rules by the Southwest Florida
Water Management District (SWFWMD)
which justify further reduction of flows to
the Chassahowitzka River and Homosassa
River in the order of three times current
consumption or more. Florida Depart-

ment of Environmental Protection has
identified both as impaired water bodies
in accordance with the Clean Water Act.
One would think "impaired" might be the
smoking gun that started the restoration
of these Outstanding Florida Waters.
Don't be silly, of course it wasn't.
MFL rules are developed without a
shred of consideration for non-point
source anti-degradation provisions of the
Clean Water Act. The water management
district specifically defers such consider-
ation to water use permitting, wherein
large-scale contributors of pollution such
as agri-business are exempted by state
Thus, the scientific basis for MFL rule
development is incomplete and of ques-
tionable merit. In part, this path has led
to the sorry mess we have on our collec-
tive hands. Once productive, economi-
cally and ecologically, many Florida
springs and rivers have been rendered
into impaired water status by multiple
pollutant sources with the full acquies-
cence of the state.
In some cases, springs no longer exist
due to unbridled impacts to ground water
resources. It is shameful.
Minimum flows and levels are used to
ensure water withdrawals do not cause
significant harm to water resources or
the environment In the case of
SWFWMD, "significant" is defined as
15 percent of habitat destruction.
In years past, the state launched a pro-
gram that allowed for certain water bod-
ies to be designated as Outstanding
Florida Waters (OFW).
There are standards to be met, such as
water quality, which allow such designa-
tion. This was embraced by the citizens
and resulted in all Springs Coast rivers,
from Weeki Wachee to the Withlacoochee,
being so designated. The people invested
time and energy in belief that the magic
of these waters would be protected.

The law so states:
Chapter 62-302.700, EA.C.; Special Pro-
tection, Outstanding Florida Waters, Out-
standingNational Resource Waters
(1) It shall be the Department policy to
afford the highest protection to Outstand-
ing Florida Waters and OutstandingNa-
tional Resource Waters. No degradation
of water quality other than that allowed
in subsections 62-4.242(2) and (3), EA.C., is
to be permitted in Outstanding Florida
Waters and Outstanding National Re-
source Waters, respectively, notwithstand-
ing any other department rules that allow
water quality lowering.
The Lower Withlacoochee River, a des-
ignated OFW, is now as impaired as the
sign heralding that status. The fishing is
fine, but "catching" is mostly a memory
Swimmers are seldom seen. Seventy per-
cent of the river flow west of Holder origi-
nates from springs or other groundwater
Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc.
(WAR) petitioned the state for OFW desig-
nation of the Lower Withlacoochee River,
just as others did for different waterways.
The state's maintenance of that contract
is a metaphorical slap in the face.
We are in this together and it is respect-
fully suggested it will take all of us to re-
pair the damage. It is time to bring this
into the sunshine; to let the sordid affair
be judged by the public that pays for state
When one opens dialog with the people
on this subject, effective discourse neces-
sitates the use of cold, unabridged facts.

Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc.,
which was organized in 1984 in response
to quality of life threats posed by
activities that have a high potential to

This leaves the board eval-
uating bids to purchase the
hospital from Health Man-

Hitting a wall in Berlin

The question of whether
Barack Obama's second
term will be a failure was
answered in the affirmative be-
fore his Berlin debacle, which
has recast the question, which
now is: Will this term be silly,
even scary in its detachment
from reality?
Before Berlin,
Obama set his steep
downward trajectory
by squandering the
most precious post- I
election months on
gun-control futilities,
and by a subsequent r
storm of scandals
that have made his
unvarying project Georg
ever bigger, more ex- OTI
pansive, more intru- VOI
sive and more
coercive government
- more repulsive. Then came
Wednesday's pratfall in Berlin.
There he vowed energetic
measures against global warm-
ing ("the global threat of our
time"). The 16-year pause of
this warming was not predicted
by, and is not explained by, the
climate models for which, in his
strange understanding of re-
spect for science, he has for-
sworn skepticism.
Regarding another threat, he
spoke an almost meaningless
sentence that is an exquisite ex-
ample of why his rhetoric can-
not withstand close reading:
"We may strike blows against
terrorist networks, but if we ig-
nore the instability and intoler-
ance that fuels extremism, our
own freedom will eventually be
endangered." So, "instability
and intolerance" are to blame
for terrorism? Instability
where? Intolerance of what by
whom "fuels" terrorists? Ter-
rorism is a tactic of destabiliza-
tion. Intolerance is, for
terrorists, a virtue.
It is axiomatic: Arms control
is impossible until it is unim-
portant. This is because arms


control is an arena of competi-
tion in which nations negotiate
only those limits that advance
their interests. Nevertheless,
Obama trotted out another
golden oldie in Berlin when he
vowed to resuscitate the ca-
daver of nuclear arms control
with Russia. As though Russia's
arsenal is a pressing
problem. And as
though there is rea-
S son to think Presi-
s dent Vladimir Putin,
who calls the Soviet
Union's collapse "the
greatest geopolitical
catastrophe of the
century," is inter-
ested in reducing the
e Will arsenal that is the
IER basis of his other-
DES wise Third World
country's claim to
great power status.
Shifting his strange focus
from Russia's nuclear weapons,
Obama said "we can ... reject
the nuclear weaponization that
North Korea and Iran may be
seeking." Were Obama given to
saying such stuff off the cuff,
this would be a good reason for
handcuffing him to a
teleprompter But, amazingly,
such stuff is put on his
teleprompter and, even more
amazingly, he reads it aloud.
Neither the people who
wrote those words nor he who
spoke them can be taken seri-
ously North Korea and Iran
may be seeking nuclear
weapons? North Korea may
have such weapons. Evidently
Obama still entertains doubts
that Iran is seeking them.
In Northern Ireland before
going to Berlin, Obama sat next
to Putin, whose demeanor and
body language when he is in
Obama's presence radiate dis-
dain. There Obama said: "With
respect to Syria, we do have dif-
fering perspectives on the prob-
lem, but we share an interest in
reducing the violence." Differ-
ing perspectives?

Obama wants to reduce the
violence by coaxing Syria's
Bashar al-Assad, who is win-
ning the war, to attend a confer-
ence at which he negotiates the
surrender of his power Putin
wants to reduce the violence by
helping with lavish materiel
assistance and by preventing
diplomacy that interferes -
Assad complete the destruction
of his enemies.
Napoleon said: "If you start
to take Vienna take Vienna."
Douglas MacArthur said that all
military disasters can be ex-
plained by two words: "Too
late." Regarding Syria, Obama
is tentative and, if he insists on
the folly of intervening, tardy
He is giving Putin a golden op-
portunity to humiliate the na-
tion responsible for the
"catastrophe." In a contest be-
tween a dilettante and a dicta-
tor, bet on the latter
Obama's vanity is a wonder of
the world that never loses its
power to astonish, but really: Is
everyone in his orbit too lost in
raptures of admiration to warn
him against delivering a speech
soggy with banalities and bro-
mides in a city that remembers
John Kennedy's "Ich bin ein
Berliner" and Ronald Reagan's
"Tear down this wall"?
With German Chancellor An-
gela Merkel sitting nearby,
Obama began his Berlin
speech: '"As I've said, Angela
and I don't exactly look like pre-
vious German and American
leaders." He has indeed said
that, too, before, at least about
himself. It was mildly amusing
in Berlin in 2008, but hardly a
Noel Coward-like witticism
worth recycling.
His look is just not that inter-
esting. And after being point-
less in Berlin, neither is he,
other than for the surrealism of
his second term.

imaginary playmates in a loony-
bin, we'd have a lot of bins full of

starts to school and has other
things to occupy his mind."
It did.
After telling her the story, I
asked my wife, "Do you think

Cheryl laughed and replied,
"Yes. You always have and al-
ways will. But, have no fear,

I suppose she's right. I've prob-

Slow down growth plans
Citrus County needs corrective
Reading old news articles about the
future growth of Citrus County makes
me wonder if anyone in government had
a backup plan in case of a failure. A par-
ticular article stands out dated July 31,
2011, by Geoff Greene, our county tax
In the article, he supports the Sun-
coast Parkway and Port Citrus projects.
He stated that this project will bring
new residents into Citrus County and
broaden the tax base. He states that
Progress Energy is going to repair the
nuclear plant and more high paying jobs
will be located in Citrus County and
growth will continue. Well, here we are
in June 2013. This is the future, and
what a mess we're in.
Progress Energy/Duke Energy an-
nounced that they are closing the plant
Progress/Duke have merged and since
the merger have not paid their fair
share of taxes to Citrus County. The fall
of the housing market has created 374
foreclosures of homes in this county.
The tax base has eroded and we must
cut services in all areas from schools to
police and fire.
The Duke/Progress tax mess is going
to cost us more to litigate. Where is the
growth we once envisioned? The only
growth I see is a tax increase that is
going to come to adjust the base for the
services we need. It is time to rethink
and stop this mad rush to growth.
Duke is about 26 percent of our tax
base and the residential sector is about
49 percent I believe you get the picture
now. We are going to need a tax increase
in order to stay afloat. If we take the $18
million loss from the residential sector
and add Duke's failure to pay its $16
million, that comes to $34 million. That
is the reality of trying to grow too fast
and relying on one major source of tax
I am asking all residents to get in
touch with the Citrus County Board of
County Commissioners and put a stop to
all spending on the Port Citrus project
and Suncoast Parkway until at least we
see the outcome of the lawsuit brought
forward by Duke. This is going to be a
costly battle.
Look at Duke's past history in other
states and you'll see they won all their

Civilization's crucial moment
On May 9, 2013, for the first time in
human history, the concentration of car-
bon dioxide in the atmosphere reached
400 parts per million. That's higher than
it's been in at least 3 million years. It
has been relentlessly increasing since
the dawn of the industrial revolution,
and with it, the average global tempera-
ture has risen 1.5 degrees. The last time
carbon dioxide surpassed 400 parts per
million, the temperature of the Earth
rose to more than 6 degrees higher than
today and sea levels up to 131 feet
We're on a path that will take us to
those same conditions by the end of the
century The current warming is making
natural weather events more extreme.
Wildfires are beginning earlier in the
year and lasting longer.
Droughts alternate with record down-
pours and flooding. Devastating heat
racked Australia this past winter and the
U.S. last spring and summer, and deadly
heatwaves killed more than 35,000 peo-
ple in Europe in 2003 and 15,000 in Rus-
sia during 2010. Thirty million people
were displaced in 2012 because of cli-
mate-related events. Last year was the
36th consecutive year with temperatures
above the 20th century average.
As polar ice melts, many low-lying
areas across the world and in the U.S.
become vulnerable to rising seas.
Higher sea levels reinforced storm
surges from hurricanes Katrina and
Sandy Sea levels are rising four times
faster than the global average, from
Cape Hatteras to Boston. Three 1,000-
year floods have occurred in Minnesota
in the past eight years. Three-fourths of
Florida's population lives near the
coast. The Florida Oceans and Coastal
Council in 2009 published a report dis-
cussing coastal vulnerability and pre-
dicted the expected 40-inch sea level
rise this century will submerge more

than 9 percent of Florida's land area,
jeopardizing an infrastructure worth
more than 2 trillion dollars.
Insurance companies are paying out
more claims due to the increased risks
of storm surge. The World Bank in 2012
warned if we don't alter the path we're
on now, one that will likely take us past
six degrees, we threaten to "make the
world our children inherit a completely
different world than we are living in
The International Energy Association
(IEA), in its 2012 Energy Outlook
stressed that no more than one-third of
proven fossil fuel reserves can be ex-
tracted and keep the world from heating
more than 3.5 degrees, but in its mid-
term report, it described a world ignor-
ing its moral responsibility.
We're so focused on becoming more
energy self-sufficient, we ignore the fact
that not only are we destroying the
world around us, we're accepting the
human toll it's costing us. On our pres-
ent course we aren't engineering a bet-
ter world for our grandchildren, we're
condemning them to a hellish new one.
Climate change is not a political
issue; it is a purely scientific one.
Ninety seven percent of scientists
knowledgeable of climate science agree
the climate is warming and humans are
causing it by burning fossil fuels.
What should we do? We must con-
vince our elected officials to force pro-
ducers to pay the real economic costs of
oil, coal and natural gas production by
eliminating subsidies, enacting a carbon
tax on their extraction and passing the
taxes on to the public. In addition, two
thirds of known reserves must remain
in the ground. Leveling the playing field
will allow clean, renewable energy
sources to become a major part in our
energy needs. Then we must learn to
conserve, repair and recycle in order to
protect our diminishing natural

Constitution's original intent
I'm responding to Peter Poland's let-
ter: "Context still matters."
The federal government the founding
generation created was to be limited to
those powers ceded to it. One need only
look at the preamble to the Bill of
Rights to see the plain sense and inten-
tion that supports this. If implied pow-
ers were meant to be anything the
federal government chose it to be, then
this, in effect, would nullify the Consti-
tution. You cannot overlook the logical

progression of incorrect interpretations.
The concerns regarding the "weak-
ness of the central government under
the Articles of Confederation" were re-
solved with the new Constitution. The
addition of the Bill of Rights was de-
manded by the federalists and anti-
federalists, especially as a precaution
that the newly created government
would not expand the enumerated pow-
ers, and usurp the unalienable rights
belonging to the people. Love it or hate
it, but the Lockean natural rights theory
is still embodied in the original mean-
ing of the Constitution, which Peter
Poland ignores.
The 9th and 10th Amendments origi-
nated in the ratifying debates. The 9th
Amendment implicitly acknowledges
the federal government has implied, in-
cidental powers, but these powers
should not be construed broadly be-
cause they are limited, and the people's
rights are preserved in other ways. The
10th Amendment embodies a similar
caution while reminding us the designa-
tio unius maxim applied to the Constitu-
tion's enumerated powers, expressly
excludes the theory the federal govern-
ment enjoys un-enumerated powers
arising from the "inherent sovereign au-
thority." Peter Poland is taking James
Madison out of context when referring
to the 10th Amendment, in addition to
completely ignoring the 9th Amendment
Peter Poland lacks understanding of
the constitutional tradition in which our
founding generation deeply believed,
which included natural and British
laws. "Self-defense, or self-preservation,
is one of the first laws of nature, which
no man ever resigned upon entering
into Society." (Zephaniah Swift, author
of America's first legal text, 1792) This is
considered an individually guaranteed
inalienable right.
Peter Poland stated my referencing
George Mason as the Father of the Bill
of Rights "is a stretch." He obviously
doesn't know what James Madison pre-
sented to the Congress, June 8, 1789,
was almost an exact copy of Virginia's
proposal, which was almost an exact
copy of Mason's Master Draft. When
Mason prepared the Master Draft, he
drew heavily from the Virginia Declara-
tion of Rights that he wrote 12 years ear-
lier Mason also borrowed provisions
from the Declarations of Rights of Penn-
sylvania, Maryland, and the Virginia
Constitution, which he also authored.
New York, North Carolina and Rhode
Island also replicated mostly Mason's
Master Draft. The amendments in the
Bill of Rights were based on the Vir-
ginia Declaration of Rights, which

Mason also drafted in 1776.
Peter Poland defends the revisionist
interpretation and the annotated consti-
tution, which changes in interpretation
according to the political wind. I sup-
port the theory of originalism. We will
never agree. Nevertheless, I have en-
joyed these discussions.
Many are bastardizing originalism
and our history Those who support
these distortions, might as well believe
that war is peace, evil is good, slavery is
freedom and ignorance is strength.
Our Constitution is an unequaled his-
torical achievement; unbalancing any
part of it would damage the safeguards
erected that protect our liberty
Originalism does not remove contro-
versy, but it does cabin it within a prin-
cipled constitutional tradition that
makes real the Rule of Law. Without
that, we are destined, as Aristotle
warned, to fall into the "rule of men."

Too much Tiger Woods
Something is rotten in Denmark, or in
my mind, the television coverage of pro-
fessional golf. Never in the many years I
have watched golf on television has the
play of a contender 20 strokes off the
lead justified coverage, unless it was a
hole-in-one or some other extraordi-
nary play
Ah, but wait, this isn't the PGA Tour
anymore is it? It quite obviously is the
Tiger Woods Tour I guess we don't care
who is actually in the lead if Eldric is
But what do I know? I'm just a guy
who likes to watch good golf.

Follow service dog rules
Regarding Andrea Phillips's letter to
the wditor concerning service dogs I
am in no way against a disabled person
using a qualified service dog to go wher-
ever they need to go. I realize that the
ADA allows them to do so. Just to let you
know, service dog vests can be pur-
chased on eBay and can be made. They
don't automatically make a dog a serv-
ice dog. I understand that the training
for service dogs is costly But I have al-
ways understood that real service dogs
are not to be petted and so forth while
they are "on duty." They are not out
there to make "friends."
They are working. If you take your
service dog into department stores/gro-
cery stores, then why don't you also take
it into restaurants? Wouldn't you need it
there as well? I am disabled also, but
my disability does not require a service
dog. My complaint is that I believe that
there are people who are using this to
take their regular dog with them every-
where. If you are truly disabled, I don't
have a problem with a service dog any-
where. But if anyone is doing this with-
out formal training, please stop. It's a
slap in the face to "real" service dogs.
Also, please show a certification card to
the store/restaurant manager that states
you have a fully trained service dog on
duty for your disability.

No one listening
I am writing this letter due to a situa-
tion involving a student loan problem
and I believe I am not the only one
going through this.
In 1977, I took out a loan for $5,000
and to this day the government is still
trying to collect it
I recently filed papers to stop pay-
ment, which is coming out of my Social
Security check monthly My argument is
with our "system" that does nothing to
resolve situations.
We are surrounded by answering ma-
chines, "pat" answers, runarounds and
continuous misinformation in many de-
partments supposedly there to help us.
No wonder there are many people who
are not able to control their emotions
when trying to resolve something.
It honestly feels that there is actually
no one there who cares or actually lis-
tens. Our government is supposed to be
for the people, and I as an individual
feel this is far from the truth.

Letters to the EDITOR

Concerning 'The Original
Intent of our Constitution'
I find I have a great deal of sympathy
for the position in which Mr. Poland
finds himself. The common fallacy in
his line of thinking has been fostered by
over a century of progressive/positivist
teachings in our schools. I should know.
I am a retired teacher
After retirement I, like others, discov-
ered the truth. Unfortunately, Mr Poland
seems to have bought into the superfi-
cial stories and quick Internet answers
instead of an in-depth type of research.
Please read the complete notes of the
Constitutional Convention 1787 as
recorded by James Madison. As he often
shorted opposing speeches and opin-
ions, these need to be supplemented by
letters and notes of the Convention by
the Honorable Robert Yates, James Wil-
son, Charles Pinckney, George Mason
and Gunning Bedford to name a few.
David 0. Stewart's The Summer of
1787, shows Madison's role at the con-
vention as far less than contemporary
history records. On page 105, Stewart
reveals, "..how the traditional view of
Madison as 'Father of the Constitution'
does not reflect the reality of the
Madison himself took no credit but ac-
knowledged "many heads and many
hands" with the creation of the Consti-
tution. Although he spoke more than
any other delegate, he was on the losing
side of the argument a majority of times.
He was elected to only one committee
on Style at the end, that Gouverneur
Morris dominated. Madison's plan (the
Virginia Plan) saw little success at the
Convention. His ideas were overshad-
owed by other plans, ideas and compro-
mises presented. Charles Pinckney's
complete draft (32 or more of his points
included), William Paterson's small
states plan, plus the Articles of Confed-
eration considered in the Committee of
Detail, had far more influence on the
final document.
In 1840, 53 years after the event, notes
of the Convention finally came to light,
when they were sold by Dolly to Con-
gress. As the last living signer, an aura
had grown around Madison as the Fa-
ther of the Constitution, that he himself
denied. This though should not deni-
grate his great life of service and devo-
tion to our fledgling republic.
In respect to The Bill of Rights, Madi-
son was more editor and promoter, not
the author. Many scholarly works con-

sider George Mason as the source and
inspiration. The letter that was sent
with the Bill of Rights to the state legis-
latures says they were written "in order
to prevent misconstruction or abuse of
its (the Constitution's) powers, that fur-
ther declaratory and restrictive clauses
should be added."
The Federalist Papers help explain
that the "enumerated powers" of Article
I, Section 8, were indeed to restrict the
powers of the central government (see
Federalist 15, 32, 33, and 45). The litera-
ture of the time reinforces this numer-
ous times. As Jefferson pointed out,
anyone could find particular words or
phrases and torture from it a meaning
that was never intended.
The most convincing evidence comes
from the great Nationalist, James Wil-
son, author of the disputed clauses in
the Committee of Detail. October 6,
1787, he gave a famous speech, insisting
that the Constitution required no Bill of
Rights because the National Govern-
ment would exercise only those powers
delegated to it by the positive grant ex-
pressed in the instrument of union (in
other words, Article I, Section 8).
Mrs. Mattos has done her homework.
We need more scholars of her dedica-
tion to educate the community.

Turn off sprinklers
According to my rain gauge I live in
Citrus Hills we had well over 6 inches
of rain in the last week. Coming home
last night and this morning, I find peo-
ple with their lawn sprinklers going.
People, even if you have your own well,
you're just wasting water. Any-
body will tell you (that) too a
much water sometimes is detri- ,
mental to grass. All homes are
supposed to have an automatic
cutoff. People, use some sense.
If we've had that much rain,
turn your sprinklers off. It
doesn't take but a second to go
out there and switch it off.
Beautiful flowers CALI
Yes, I believe those beautiful 5630
wildflowers along our (U.S.) 19
are absolutely beautiful and they just
keep blooming and blooming. They're
starting to die a little bit now, but they
last a long time. Thank you very much.
Finding death reports
This is in response to a June 10
Sound Off. It was called "Disputes death
report." This person is looking to get a
coroner's report or autopsy report. You
might try by dialing this number. It's the
District 5 medical examiner's office. The
office is in Leesburg and the number is
352-326-5961. I'm not sure what coun-
ties are included under District 5 but I
know there's several. So it might be at
least a place to start. Or you could call
the police department in the county
where your daughter passed away. Hope
this helps.




Refunds for plastic
I'm here drinking some bottled water.
It says "5 cent refund" ... in states like
Hawaii, Maine, Oregon. Now I know that
might be a little bit much for a refund,
but you know, even if it was 2 cents or
the same amount as aluminum cans, it
can't be very much. Imagine
|N just how much our streets
MUN would be cleaner. People, you
I know, I myself have gone
around for the cans even
S though they don't amount to
much at all. But I see a lot of
these bottles. I sure would like
to be picking up more of them
4 as I go along, and have it count
for something. Just an idea.
0579 Just a thought.
Adaptive colony
I know this sounds like I'm making
this up, but I just read that there are a
new breed of ants that have invaded, I
believe, Texas, Florida and Alabama,
that actually eat through wire. I was
wondering whether anyone had heard
anything about this and could help and
just explain.
Faulty workmanship
I bought a tape, supposedly for my
birthday. You know what? It is a piece of
crap. It's made in Mexico. What is going
on in the United States of America? I
am sick of it.
Blind fear
Running scared of coyotes only
proves that you have vision in at least
one eye.

We reach out to all branches of the mili-
tary- Marines, Army, Navy, Coast
Guard and Air Force to help if
needed in any way we can.
Our staff and membership work very
hard along with the Citrus Marine Corps
League Auxiliary to make this the suc-
cess it has become to give to our injured
warriors of Florida who so bravely gave
to give us the freedom we live with today.
When they sign on that dotted line they
have no idea what harm may come their
way but they are there to defend our
country, no question asked. Honor,
courage and dedication are their commit-
ment to their God, their country and the
families they leave behind as they are
sent into harm's way. In return we ready
ourselves for those who have come in
line with the misfortunes of battle to help
make their return home a little more
comfortable and to show our apprecia-
tion and gratitude to them in any way we
can help. We thank them for their great
service so we can have a better America.

Women of Citrus County
hold Power of the Purse
Thank you to the more than 100
women who attended the first Power of
the Purse held at Black Diamond and
hosted by the Women's Leadership
Council of the United Way of Citrus
County. This event featured more than
40 purses up for silent auction and
seven live auction items that were val-
ued from $275 to $690 and in many cases
sold for even more. Raffle tickets were
available for $10 for armlengths of tick-
ets, and two purse combinations were
raffled off during the live auction. Many
of the purses were paired with trinkets
and/or tickets to events and places. The
event raised more than $7,000 for use in
Citrus County.
Power of the Purse is a signature
event for United Ways across the coun-
try and is a kickoff event for the
Women's Leadership Council (WLC).
This committee is comprised of women
who provide annual gifts of $1,000 or
more and are committed to the princi-
ples that will continue to make this a
great community. The United Way WLC
program embraces social philanthropy
while assisting women and children
within the community. Members will do
more than just socialize and learn about
critical community needs; they will be
involved in volunteer projects that im-
pact women and children and the
health of our community.
In addition to the unselfish attendees,
many generous benefactors stepped for-
ward with both new and gently used
bags as well as accessories. We thank
our donors: Amy Mangan, Duke Energy;
Amy Meek; Belk; Connors Gifts; Cotton
Club; Daisy Bazo; Donna Pearcey; Dr.

The United Way appreciates the gen-
erous donation of time and resources
that were given and is pleased to offer
this new council that harnesses the
Power of the Purse. We thank all those
who participated and hope to see you
all at next year's event, made better and
bigger through your suggestions!

Hot Corner: PETS

Good for your soul
I don't have to look up
"animal" in the dictionary.
I'm a nurse and I know
dogs don't pass MRSA,
Staphylococcus aureus,
around the community like
people do. And dogs don't
pass viruses like the com-
mon cold and flu. What
are you so afraid of? I bet
you appreciate the officer
of the law that is a dog
when you're searching for
your lovedone one or some
guy who just robbed you
or finds drugs that are ru-
ining our young adults.
Some dogs can even find
cancer in people. Dogs
just want to be loved by
people. That's their whole
goal in life, is to please us
and be craved by us. All I
said was open your heart
a little when you see one
in the store because you
don't know all the circum-
stances for them being in
there with their owner.
Dogs can also sense your
moods and feelings and
try to comfort people, like
God is communicating
through them. You should
get a dog. They're good for
your soul.

Animal haters
For all you animal
haters: Not all service ani-
mals need to wear cloth-
ing anymore to let you
know that they're service
animals. A lot of them are
for emotional purposes
and the people are allowed
to take them to stores and
allowed to take them to
restaurants and they have
little cards stating so.
Maybe all you animal
haters should stay home
and stay out of the stores
and stay out of the restau-
rants if you don't like

being in public with people
and their pets. Stay home
and eat at home.
Allow in public
There is something to
say about people that
don't like or respect ani-
mals. Most of these ani-
mals are probably cleaner
than the people complain-
ing about them. In Ger-
many, they are not only
accepted, but people are
encouraged to bring their
animals to restaurants -
good dining restaurants.
Here they're not. So the
only outing that these poor
little animals get are like
trips to the stores. I agree
that maybe not grocery
stores, but general stores
they should be allowed to
go in. It's terrible having to
leave them at home 24/7
because of people like you
that have these nasty
A bit too much
I'm reading in the Chron-
icle June 16, Sunday,
about all the pets, why
people should leave them
home. I have another rea-
son. I had a booth in a flea
market one time with a
cover on the table all the
way down to the floor and
a male dog came and
lifted his leg and wet on it.
Now that's a little bit too
much and another lady
put her little darling puppy
on the table and it was
shaking and scared to
death and it just piddled
all over the place and ru-
ined everything on my
table. And also, my friend
has a doctor who has a big
dog in the office and I
don't think that's right.
Insulted by calls
I'm rather insulted by
some of the messages

about leaving animals, in-
cluding service animals, at
home. I have shrapnel in
my neck and my back, a
fused neck. I'm going to
read the American Disabil-
ities Act of 1990. Busi-
nesses may ask two
questions: 1. Is this a serv-
ice dog? 2. What task does
this service dog perform?
Businesses may not ask
about the person's disabil-
ity, require identification
for the dog, charge addi-
tional fees for the dog, re-
fuse entry, isolate,
segregate or treat this per-
son less favorable than
other patrons. A service
dog is not to be required
to leave the premises un-
less it is out of control and
the animal owner does not
control it and it poses a di-
rect threat to the safety
of others, i.e., severe
allergies. ...
Bring them in
Don't bring the dogs
into the store. Don't leave
them in the car. Humbug.
Bring them in. They'll ap-
preciate the A/C. Leave
those brats outside 'til
they learn some manners.
Unconditional love
I'm calling about today's
article about no pets in
public. Well, to the person
who wrote about "An ani-
mal is an animal": Well,
they probably don't own
an animal. And look
around you, I think in this
day and age I would rather
have an animal in a store
than some of these people
that don't take baths. They
just don't do anything. So
as far as "An animal is an
animal," well, they're
wrong. Try having one and
maybe you'll find out that
they love you uncondition-
ally, not like people do.

Sound OFF

Try random testing
I'm calling the Chronicle in reference
to the Sound Off, "Use common sense,"
where it says most drivers don't realize
what a yellow flashing light means, that
they should put a big sign in. I'd like to
know, how did they get their license? You
have to take a written test. So here you
go; every time you renew your license,
get people out at random and give them
the written test on signs to see if they
pass. It's common sense. You've had this
already in your driver's manual unless
somebody just passed you.
Misplaced blame
I just finished reading the front page
story in Tuesday's paper (June 11) about
the two young men that were arrested on
drug warrants and sicced their dog on
the sheriff's deputies. I think it's about
time here in Citrus County that we do
something positive for these types of
dogs. They're a very smart dog. They're a
very friendly dog. They're very outgoing.
They're willing to please. They can be
used with therapy. They love agility. We
have enough dedicated and responsible
owners here that we really should have
some kind of pit bull support club. There
should be a place for them to work out
some of their energy. We should be able
to model for some of the younger people
in town that it's much more fun to teach
your dog agility than it is to teach your
dog to harm another dog or to harm a
human being. These two young men are
the problem behind the breed, not the
dog itself. It's men like the ones that
made the front page.
Why water now?
Have to ask why we're using water
trucks to go up and down (State Road)
44 watering the weeds between (S.R.) 44
and the sidewalk that was put in when
we've had so much rain and they're actu-
ally watering when we're having heavy
downpours at the same time while not
cutting the weeds alongside the grass,
which are now approaching 4 feet. Just
some more wasted money and wasted
energy in the wrong direction by the
Bad first impression
I was on the Withlacoochee bike trail
for the first time on June 6 and I came

across the severed head of a cat along
with its front legs, nothing else. I'm won-
dering what kind of (people) live here, be-
cause we just moved here about a week
and a half ago and right now my impres-
sion of Floral City is not really that good.
Looking for Hen House
In today's paper, Tuesday, June 11,
there was a complimentary article about
the Hen House Restaurant. Where in the
world is it? It sounds like it would be a
nice place to go. Can you folks find out?
Stop watering lawns
Every day now we get heavy down-
pours in the late afternoon and yet peo-
ple still have their sprinklers going twice
a week, like our lawns really need more
water. Then later when they get to the
point of such low water levels that we're
told that we can only water once a week,
those are the first to complain about it.
Well, if they had used common sense
and didn't water their lawns during the
rainy season, they might still have some
to use when we get real dry. But people
know nothing about planning ahead.
They think only about what they want
now and the heck with the future.
Looking for services
In today's paper and today is Tues-
day, June 11 -you have an article on
the Ag Alliance. In it there's a particular
sentence "... and an apparent lack of
community awareness of the services
available," speaking about the Agricul-
tural Department. Please, could you tell
us exactly what are the community serv-
ices that are available to us? I'd just like
to know.
Editor's note: A good place to start
would be to call the county's extension of-
fice at 352-527-5700.
Looking for consensus
It was refreshing to see Rebecca Bays
yesterday at the county commissioners
meeting begin to show some fiscal re-
sponsibility in her discussions and in her
positions and votes on some budget is-
sues and try to further control and un-
derstand the spending. Hopefully some
of the other commissioners will finally
understand that this is the major issue
with the citizens and join with her and
Scott Adams, who seems to be the
leader in trying to cut spending.

Front-porch reality show
I love my front porch. From my worn-
out chair, I have track-side seating for
the Homosassa Speedway, a.k.a. Fish-
bowl Drive. The straightaway from the
bridge crossing the headwaters of the
Homosassa River to newly constructed
Tradewinds condo development is ex-
actly 1 mile. Thank God most of the
motorists pay no attention to the
25 mph and then 45 mph posted speed
limits; otherwise, life on my front
porch would be rather boring.
I thoroughly enjoy watching as the
speeders, intent on reaching the finish
line first, pass slower non-speeders on
a double yellow line and, in passing,
say "Howdy-do" to the slow drivers. At
least that's what I think is being said
since I can't really hear above the
noise of the racing engines. Obviously,
they can't hear either as they often use
sign language to convey the message.
One hot summer night, I witnessed a
snazzy new Mustang take on a vintage
'68 Camaro. From a complete stop the
two launched forward with squealing
tires, side by side, power-shifting and
roaring down the one mile stretch. I
waited for the crash of metal on metal as
I was certain they could not stop in time
to negotiate dead-man's curve (the point
where Fishbowl Drive joins Yulee).
I usually don't venture on foot be-
yond my front porch. The highway isn't
a safe place for wild life, pets, kids or
old folks like me. Even roadside trees
endure life-threatening danger The
animals, kids and old geezers shouldn't
be on the roadway anyway unless they
are driving fast, raising heck and talk-
ing to other people with sign language.
The trees just can't help themselves
and fall across the roadway out of
sheer terror, I'm sure.
More often than not the flashing
blue and red lights by the raceway in-
dicate another motorist has been cor-
ralled and summarily ticketed. I love
flashing blue and red lights as they
bring back fond memories of my disco
days. I'm always ready with coffee and
donuts for the officers as a show of my
appreciation for a job well done. I have
suggested that if a full-time officer
were posted out front, enough speed-
ing ticket revenue would be realized to
purchase a year's supply of donuts for
the entire sheriff's department Appar-
ently no action is imminent.
But, it's a great place to watch the
police do their work. Once I saw a
FWC cop pull off the shoulder just
across the street in front of my grand-
stand view. A minute later a county
deputy pulled off behind him, and then
a second deputy car stopped behind
both of their vehicles. Wow! Three cop
cars. Must be some kind of desperados
in the neighborhood. The uniformed
men worked their way through the
woods to the river bank. I waited with
baited breath. Several minutes later
they escorted a young mother and fa-
ther and two dripping wet young scally-
wags not more than 10 years old back
to their patrol cars. Aha. Trespassing
on state park property. I'm so happy to
see my tax dollars at work right in front
of me on the Homosassa Speedway
Yep. My front porch seat is just as ex-
citing as going to Friday night bingo or
counting mosquito bites. Got to go now

mosassa Turns," is about to start.

What was original intent?
Over a working history (about 35 to
40 years) an earner, as well as the em-
ployer, contributed a portion of monies
earned, into Social Security. But unfor-
tunately, the worker, because of an un-
timely demise, could not collect any
I'm curious? Why hasn't the govern-
ment provided compensation to the
heir(s) of the worker, who had reached
the age of retirement, but prematurely
Is their a stipulation in the Social Se-
curity Act, addressing this issue?
Shouldn't the funds accumulated be-
long to the rightful heirs of the de-
ceased worker?
Why should the government retain
what is, legitimately not theirs? Not one
red cent was put in by them! Have the
retentions been an unlawful deception?
There must be innumerable occur-
rences when families are dishonestly
deprived of their rightful inheritance! I
would guesstimate it runs into millions
if not billions, of confiscated dollars.
If I were an ambitious attorney, I
would study the original documents to

ascertain if, in fact, the government has
the lawful authority to keep private ac-
cumulated funds.
This subterfuge couldn't have been
the original intent of those legislatures

Support our veterans
Memorial Day is a day of remember-
ing the men and women who died
while serving our country and for most
Americans a central event of this sa-
cred day is to attend a parade with
marching bands and proud military
veterans who receive rousing cheers
from the private sector Unfortunately,
this honorable effort appears to need
greater emphasis in our local area.
I noted the Chronicle listed few Me-
morial Day ceremonies, mostly occur-
ring at veterans organizations, and no
parades were scheduled in Inverness,
Floral City, Dunnellon, etc. In fact, the
front page was dedicated to a county
employee story and Memorial Day re-
porting was placed on inside pages.
During a VFW Post 4252 ceremony,
where I was keynote speaker, I said it
was unfortunate that people attending
functions honoring our heroes were
mostly veterans, or their family mem-
bers. We have to honor ourselves on
our days of honor At our ceremony, for
example, I would estimate there were
only three or four members of the pub-
lic in attendance. I have no firsthand
knowledge if this humiliating head
count was similar at other ceremonies,
however, based upon other functions I
have been privileged to speak at or at-
tend over the past 25 years similar
numbers were noted in most instances.
At our ceremony I talked about the
lack of public support to veterans not
only at Memorial Day functions but
other military veteran related pro-
grams in our communities throughout
the year This includes fundraising ac-
tivities by the Disabled American Vet-
erans, Citrus County's Operation
Welcome Home, Honor Flight, Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars Posts, American
Legion Posts, etc., where proceeds are
used to help veterans and their fami-
lies. Again, it is clearly visible the ma-
jority of supporters and those directly
involved are primarily veterans or
their family members.
I wish I could be angered by this un-
fortunate situation but I am simply sad-
dened. We must consider that due to
their age, World War II veterans are
leaving us in great numbers, Korean
War veterans are beginning to do the
same and we Vietnam War veterans
are getting a wee bit gray haired. Too,
let us not forget those who fought in re-
cent wars that are suffering horribly
from multiple tours of duty Each vet-
eran deserves better support by our
community. They fought for you in hor-
rific situations, millions have died to
maintain our freedoms and they de-
serve our honor
Another important group to remem-
ber are the families of veterans who
have experienced pure hell as they
worried about the safety of dad, mom,
son or daughter while struggling in
households with inadequate income,
trying to maintain a dual parent role,
while receiving little support from the
outside world. We owe them our under-
standing and complete support.
There are numerous programs
throughout the year and most are pub-
lished in the Chronicle. When you read
them, please take the time to get in-
volved to remember and honor Amer-
ica's heroes.
By getting involved you will provide
a statement every military veteran and
family member wants to hear -
"Thank you for serving America."
John Stewart, secretary

Our mistake
Mr Obama is practicing a policy of
appeasement. He believes that he can
placate the enemies of America. Beng-
hazi proves this. There has been no ret-
ribution, no drone strikes, no surgical
military strikes, no black ops in re-
sponse to this attack.
This doctrine failed in the late '30s
when practiced by Neville Chamber-
lain and it will fail now. The only thing
in question is to what degree it will
fail. The thing that's really astounding
is we willingly chose this man to rule
over us.

Letters to the EDITOR


Don't buy yellow
fire trucks
I know I would personally
surprise a lot of people with
the fact that I support this
new proposed fire tax by the
county commissioners. My
only question would be the
dollar amount of the charge.
But my biggest concern is if
we are going to use this gen-
erated money to support new
equipment. Are we actually
going to turn in new equip-
ment, trade in, so to speak?
Or is it going to be utilized as
backup in some of the older
distant stations so that we
don't end up with a deal like
we go this pan scraper out at
the landfill. But I suppose our
sheriff, with all his wisdom,
could prevent that. I just also
hope he doesn't buy yellow
trucks, because I've seen yel-
low fire trucks. He seems to
have a thing for toys with
Class warfare
in reverse
Regarding the MSBU/ MSTU
fire tax: By all means, make
those widows living on $500,
$600 or $700 a month and the
families struggling to pay their
mortgage on a $50,000,
$60,000 or $70,000 house ...
while giving a break to those in
the $200,000 to $250,000
house. I think this is called re-
verse class warfare.
Fire tax is
I'm calling about the so-
called fire tax here in Citrus
County. It seems it's going to
be very discriminatory toward
people with lower-cost homes
than people with higher-cost

homes. That seems to be very
unethical to have people who
are having their homes with
less value being charged more.
raising taxes
Why didn't the county com-
missioners just raise our
taxes? This fire protection bull
crap we already pay that.
We already pay for it. It's
nothing but a tax increase.
Joe Meek, Damato, Bays,
Kenney they need to go.
They all need to go. The sher-
iff's budget has not been
touched. There's money
wasted in this county left and
right and they want to cry
and say, "We can't cut any
more." Well, bring in private
businesspeople to look at

"IT A FiR'ST is P"

that budget. We'll balance the
budget. They don't seem to
be able to. It's all pro-govern-
ment. And Nixon did not take
us off the gold standard. Why
would you print that?
Not everyone pays
for protection
In the June 13 article on the
fire in the hole, Meek made a
comment, "All will pay some." I
think he meant to say, "Some
will pay all," because as I un-
derstand it, only property own-
ers will be assessed this fee.
Also, on the second page,
under "Meek," it says, "Overall,
though, it is a fair and equi-
table way to pay for the service
that everybody requires." Well,
I still can't see where every-
body is going to be paying.

Rising US wealth doesn't

generate spending surge

Associated Press
WASHINGTON- The stock mar-
ket rallied to record heights last
month, home prices have re-
bounded and the wealth of Ameri-
can households returned to where
it was before the Great Recession.
That's just what Federal Reserve
Chairman Ben Bernanke said he
wanted when the Fed announced a
third round of bond purchases last
The purchases weren't just

meant to push interest rates down
and make it cheaper for businesses
and consumers to borrow the
traditional aim of the Fed's easy
money policies. They were also de-
signed to pump up stock and house
prices, making Americans feel
richer and more willing to spend -
a process economists call the
"wealth effect"
But the wealth effect may not
have had the economic impact
Bernanke hoped it would. Sure,

Oil falls as policy,
China hit market
NEW YORK The price of oil
slid again Friday on the prospect
of a tighter supply of cash and
slower growth in China.
U.S. benchmark crude fell $1.14,
to $94 in New York The decline ex-
tends a sharp plunge that saw U.S.
oil fall from nearly $100 per barrel
in morning trading Thursday
Brent crude, which is used to
price oil used by many U.S. re-
fineries to make gasoline, fell
$1.38 to $100.77.
The average retail price of gaso-

slowly over the past week, but re-
main 12 cents higher than last year

Greece jolts market
after turbulent week
LONDON Greece returned to
stalk the financial markets Friday at
the end of a turbulent week that's
been dominated by a signal from the
U.S. Federal Reserve that it may be
done with its monetary stimulus.
Though trading had shown signs
of settling down, developments in
Athens provided investors with a
clear reminder that the country's
problems are a long way from being

Buying and

selling cars

no easy chore

DEAR BRUCE: In another
year, we will most likely be
buying a new vehicle,
mainly because our family size will
be increasing. We want to be as
smart as possible about this and
plan to sell our current vehicle on
the open market since we'll never
get the real value for it from a car
Also, since we have always be-
lieved in bigger down payments as
a way to finance less and pay
things off sooner, we would like to
make a larger down payment on
the new car We did this with our
house and got a good jump-start on
the equity. But is it wise to do this
when buying a car as it will only
depreciate with time?
Cindy, via email
DEAR CINDY: You raise two es-
sential questions. First, is selling the
vehicle on the open market a smart
way to go? It may or may not be.
If you are concerned about your
car's ability to maintain its value
or fear the engine is ready to leave
us, I would feel more comfortable
trading the car in and letting the
dealer handle it. In today's world,
used cars are doing relatively well,
and you should be able to get a de-
cent return.
However, if you wish to sell it
yourself, you can still think about
trading it in if it doesn't work out.
Second, as to the down payment,
you're right: The more you put

is up 11 percent since the bond-buying policy was
announced in mid-September, despite plummeting
Wednesday and Thursday on news that the Fed
could end the purchases by the middle of 2014. And
overall household wealth hit $70.3 trillion at the
end of March, regaining the $12.7 trillion lost in the
But Americans still aren't shopping with enough
gusto to add much momentum to the economy. Con-
sumer spending actually fell in April from March.
And economic output 70 percent of which comes
from consumer spending is expected to grow at
an annual rate of just 2 percent from April through
June, down from a 2.4 percent rate the first three
months of 2013.
The biggest gains aren't going to the vast majority of
Americans. Many families are still nursing big losses
on the value of their home, and the big drop in home
prices from 2006 through 2011 has undermined their
confidence. Moreover, their incomes have been
crimped by a weak labor market and tax hikes that
took effect in January

Stacks of paperwork awaited members of the House Agriculture Committee Wednesday on Capitol Hill in
Washington, as it met to consider proposals to the 2013 Farm Bill. The House's broad rejection of the
massive farm bill could signal a shift in the way Congress views agriculture policy.

Rejection of farm bill leaves few options

Associated Press

broad rejection of a massive farm
bill could signal a shift in the way
Congress views agriculture policy
Farm issues once had enormous
clout on Capitol Hill, but the
healthy agriculture economy and
an increased interest in cutting
spending have worked against
farm-state lawmakers who are now
trying to push a farm bill through
for a third year in a row.
The five-year, half-trillion

dollar measure would have ex-
panded some subsidies while sav-
ing about $4 billion annually
overall, including a 3 percent cut
in the almost $80 billion-a-year
food stamp program. The vote
Thursday was 234-195 against the
bill, with 62 Republicans voting
"no," arguing it was too expensive.
House Agriculture Committee
Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla.,
said after the vote that the com-
mittee is assessing its options.
But just before the vote, he sig-
naled that he was not optimistic
he would be able to get another

bill to the floor
"I can't guarantee you'll see in
this Congress another attempt,"
he said.
Lucas and other rural lawmak-
ers argue that a farm bill is
needed to avert crises stemming
from bad weather or price col-
lapses. They could push for an
extension of the 2008 farm bill,
which expires in September, or
negotiate a new bill with the Sen-
ate and try again. Some conserva-
tives have suggested separating
the farm programs from the food
stamps into separate bills.

Duke Energy assistance program planned

Special to the Chronicle

OCALA- Workforce Connec-
tion will hold a worker assistance
program for Duke Energy em-
ployees who may find themselves
in need of options due to the clos-
ing of the Crystal River Nuclear
Power Plant.
The program is designed to
give interested workers and their
spouses or guest an overview of
re-employment and training op-
portunities, financial aid and
other community resources. It
will take place from 5 to 8 p.m.
Wednesday, July 10, at the College
of Central Florida's Learning and
Conference Center, 3800 S.
Lecanto Highway, in Lecanto.
Some 600 full-time employees
work at the nuclear power plant,
which is currently in the process
of being decommissioned by
Duke Energy. The company is
working with its employees to
help as many as possible make
the transition to positions in
other Duke Energy organizations.

The worker assistance program is
being held in cooperation with
Duke Energy and is offered in ad-
dition to employee services pro-
vided by the company
There is no charge to attend
the program which, in addition to
Workforce Connection, is spon-
sored by the college, Withla-
coochee Technical Institute and
United Way of Citrus County Re-
freshments will be provided cour-
tesy of Duke Energy. Those
interested in taking part are
asked to sign up at www.
In addition, to better serve
Duke Energy employees inter-
ested in re-employment services
and/or unable to attend next
month's program, Workforce Con-
nection is offering extended
hours at its One-Stop Career Cen-
ter The center, which remains
open until 6:30 p.m. each Thurs-
day in June, is at 1103 E. Inver-
ness Blvd., in Inverness.
Workforce Connection CEO

Rusty Skinner said that while
Duke Energy is making every ef-
fort to move affected workers into
positions elsewhere within the
company, not everyone may be
able to make that move.
"We understand and appreci-
ate the lengths Duke Energy is
going to in order to ensure that
this closing creates as minimal an
impact as possible on its work-
force and this community," Skin-
ner said. "But because the
operation of this plant has em-
ployed so many people here for
so long, and has been so vital to
Citrus County, we felt it was im-
portant to offer our assistance.

need a job at the end of all this,

down, the less you finance and the
quicker you pay it off. You'll want to
start shopping for the financing, as well.
The dealer may offer you low-interest
or even 0-interest financing, but that
may not necessarily be the best deal.
How can 0 percent interest not be a
good deal? If you pay cash, borrowing
the money elsewhere, oftentimes you
can get a substantial reduction in price
or a cash refund.
Either way, the answers are not al-
ways clear Who said this should be
DEAR BRUCE: I am a 49-year-old
male and recently divorced. I am
$28,000 in credit card debt My income
is $72,000 a year My mortgage is
$110,000 and car payment is $260 a
Although I can make the unsecured
credit card payments, I am thinking of
liquidating the $28,000. I have stocks in
various companies. The money I would
be using to make the monthly credit
card payment, I would invest in a de-
ferred compensation program available
through my employer
I just can't see paying 12 percent to 15
percent interest on unsecured loans. If I
sell my stock, I will be debt-free except
for the house payment and car payment.
What is your advice?
--J.K, via email
DEAR J.K: Sounds like a plan to me.
I agree, paying 12 percent to 15 percent
on an unsecured loan is not a good idea.
If you sell the stock, you will be debt-
free, and you can start making payments
to rebuild the savings.
If you recognize that you don't have
the discipline to make those payments,
you might want to consider shopping
around for a lower credit card rate. But
you seem to know which way to go and
why, and you seem to have the disci-
pline to carry it off. If that's the case, go
in peace and start a new life.
DEAR BRUCE: We have a Roth IRA
that is maturing soon. I have a very good
rate. Do you mind telling me where I
can get a 5 percent reinvestment?
J.L., via email
DEAR J.L.: It's no big secret. In my
opinion, 5 percent is not a difficult num-

ber to obtain. It does involve taking a
certain degree of risk in the market.
There is nothing wrong with some risk,
and without the risk you won't get any-
thing on your investment.
I am suggesting that you go to a good
broker, sit down and tell him or her
what you would like to accomplish: get-
ting at least 5 percent or more by invest-
ing in good, substantial stocks that are
paying decent dividends. This requires
the discipline to hang in there when
things are going down, as they will, and
looking over your portfolio regularly Do
not panic with the ups and downs of the
market. In time, the market will go up in
DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I are
in the process of buying the house and
land where he grew up.
He has 32 acres, and his sister has 10
acres and the house. My husband origi-
nally paid her $20,000 to make this fair
His sister died a few years ago. Her
husband lived there until he moved into
an assisted living community closer to
his daughters two years ago. The house
has been for sale these two years for an
exorbitant price. The brother-in-law and
his oldest daughter are horrendous to
work with, and my husband has to try to
reason with them concerning the price.
But this is not my problem. My prob-
lem is: What happens to me should my
husband pass away before me? Where
will I go?
His land and the house will immedi-
ately go to his two adult children (first
wife passed away). This house is in the
country and not anywhere close to my
friends or family or his friends and fam-
ily I will not live here. I can almost
guarantee you that his kids will sell and
buy their own homes where they want
to live. Not in this little town, for sure.
I hate to be unreasonable; I want
what is fair for all involved. This land is
very important to my husband, and he
will see to it that the house and land
stays in his family This will be our re-
tirement home in a few years.
Do I just have to move out and give
the house to them if he passes away be-
fore me? This is what my husband
thinks I should do since it is their inher-
itance. I think this is so unfair! My sug-
gestion is to sell it to them at what we
have paid on it and then assume the
note. Am I wrong?

I also feel the $20,000 my husband
originally paid should be considered
part of the purchase price we have to
pay the brother-in-law. The home is
being purchased in both of our names.
This is scary to me to think I will have
nowhere to go and his kids will receive
a free home we had to pay for Do you
have any suggestions? We have talked
with a real estate attorney, but he is the
father of my husband's son's wife.
KL., via email
DEAR K.L.: You say the house is to be
in your and your husband's names. At
least half the house will belong to you
should your husband predecease you. If
it is titled (as it should be) to the sur-
vivor, then it will be entirely yours.
Since you don't want to live in the
house, you should be able to work out
some kind of deal where the children
from his first marriage could buy out
your interest. If they don't want to buy it,
put the house on the market
The idea of the house going to your
husband's adult children is absurd. You
are his wife, and you should get the
house. He can certainly say you will be
obliged to sell the house and give them
first right to refusal, which means they
can buy the house for whatever you are
offered for it. I don't see anything unfair
DEAR BRUCE: I have a house that
has a second mortgage. We owe more
than the house is worth. Is there anyone
who can help get refinancing?
WW, via email
DEAR WW: There are some govern-
ment programs being advertised exten-
sively on the radio. You might wish to
respond and see what they have to offer
The ads say that in some cases, even
though a home is upside-down (meaning
more is owed on it than it's worth), you
can still get some refinancing on these
special programs. I wouldn't get my
hopes up too high on that.
One thing that is certain, though: In
most parts of the country, real estate is
starting to recapture its value. I don't
expect to see the sky-high values of five
or six years ago, but if you can afford the
payments, you might consider keeping
them up. The likelihood is that the ma-
jority of your deficit will wiped out.
In the absence of that, you might wish
to investigate a short sale. In other
words, you would go to the lender and
say, "The house is worth $100,000, but
the most I can get for it is $90,000. If you

will accept $90,000, I will sell it to get
out from under it."
DEAR BRUCE: I have a repossessed
vehicle loan from back in 2009. It is in
collections, and I have creditors cir-
cling. I am sure they have sold the vehi-
cle, but I do not know how to get that
The last creditor I talked with said I
owed $8,000, due immediately, which is
what I owed when I lost it. But being in
contact with friends and a family
lawyer, I'm told that they can only col-
lect fair market value and/or whatever
is left on the loan from the resale. I was
advised, from this lawyer, just to ride it
out, not to talk to any collectors and wait
for it to disappear
I hate having this over my head and
would love some resolution, one way or
another Any information, advice,
help or suggestions you can give me
would be appreciated more than you
could know.
Ryan, via email
DEAR RYAN: I am not sure that what
your friends and family lawyer are
telling you is the way you should con-
sider going. Since it's been a number
f years, that loan has been sold once or
twice already and will be sold again by
the company that owns it now but isn't
collecting. That new company will
get aggressive in collecting what is
You have every right to insist that the
company provide the amount that was
due on the loan when the repossession
took place, how much it was sold for,
and the interest that has been accruing
over the last three or four years. You
can probably settle it for 15 cents or
20 cents on a dollar That might be the
way to go.
If you hang in there for a couple of
years, it probably will go away, but it
will stay on your credit report certainly
for five to 10 years. If that's important to
you, you might wish to negotiate a

Business DIGEST

Health Center at
Brentwood noted
LECANTO Health Cen-
ter at Brentwood, a proud
member of the Consulate
Health Care family, has been
recognized as a 2013 recipi-
ent of the Bronze Commit-
ment to Quality award for its
dedication to improving the
lives of residents through im-
proved care. The award is
one of three distinctions pos-
sible through the National
Quality Award program, pre-
sented by the American
Health Care Association and
National Center for Assisted
Living (AHCA/NCAL).
The program honors health
care centers across the nation
that have demonstrated their
commitment to improving
care for seniors and individu-
als with disabilities.
Consulate Health Care cur-
rently serves as the industry's
largest post-acute provider in
the State of Florida, so it is no
surprise that of the 42 awards
issued nationally in their
name, an impressive 37
bronze awards were pre-
sented to locations in Florida,
including Health Center at
Brentwood, in Lecanto.
"In an age of changing
health care, Health Center at
Brentwood has remained
committed to prioritizing qual-
ity care above all else," said
Mark Parkinson, president
"This facility is an example of
the great things that can be
accomplished when we com-
mit to person-centered care."
Implemented by AHCA/
NCAL in 1996, the National
Quality Award Program is

centered on the core values
and criteria of the Baldrige
Performance Excellence Pro-
gram. The program assists
providers of long-term and
post-acute care services in
achieving their performance
excellence goals.
The program has three lev-
els: bronze, silver and gold.
Centers begin the quality im-
provement process at the
bronze level, where they de-
velop an organizational profile
with essential performance el-
ements such as vision and
mission statements and an
assessment of customers' ex-
pectations. Bronze applicants
must demonstrate their ability
to implement a performance
improvement system. A team
of trained Examiners reviews
each bronze application to de-
termine if the center has met
the criteria. As a recipient of
the Bronze Commitment to
Quality award, Health Center
at Brentwood may now begin
developing approaches to
achieve performance levels
that meet the criteria required
for the Silver Achievement
in Quality award.
"This award is not simply a
plaque that facilities hang on
the wall and forget," said
Ed McMahon, chair, AHCA/
NCAL National Quality Award
Board of Overseers. "Facili-
ties such as Health Center at
Brentwood receive this award
because they're committed to
the constant journey of im-
proving quality care."
The awards are sponsored
by AHCA/NCAL's Associate
Business Member, My In-

search Corporation). My

Cleaning the kitchen cabinets

Dear Sara: I have oak
cabinets, and over
the years the grease
still builds up. I wash them
regularly, but I am not satis-
fied with the results. Do you
have any ideas what to use
on the cabinets to get the
buildup removed without
harming the wood? Lisa,
Dear Lisa: I have used
Murphy's Oil Soap, a combi-

nation of one part white
vinegar to four parts olive
oil, or mineral spirits and a
microfiber cloth with good
results. Here's a recipe that
can be used to clean the
buildup on older cabinets,
Cabinet Cleaner
1 part vegetable oil
2 parts baking soda
Combine and apply with a
cloth. Use an old toothbrush

in corners and crevices.
Dear Sara: Would a
pumpkin bread/loaf tin be a
suitable plan B for the
"bread trough" you use for
your no-knead bread? -

Dear Sara: How much should
I pay for a handmade crocheted
or knitted baby afghan? Prices
on eBay range from $29.95 up to
$175. I know a lot of work goes
into making these, but what is a
decent price? I tried to make
one while I was pregnant and I
ended up throwing the whole
thing (needle and all) in the
garbage. I'm going to try again
soon, but I don't think it'll turn
out. I've tried reading the pat-
tern books, but they're hard to
understand like trying to read a
foreign language. Tammy,
Dear Tammy: If you are inter-
ested in giving it another try, I
would try online video tutorials.
It's much easier to follow a video
than a flat pattern book. You
could learn one or two basic cro-
chet stitches and make your
own. I can't say that I'd pay more

than $100 for a baby blanket,
even if it was quilted. I have cro-
cheted baby blankets, and if I
were to sell one, I'd price it
under $35, depending on the
yarn I used. I'd put the word out
I'm sure between family and
friends, someone could gift you
a handmade baby blanket Also,
if you're not horribly opposed to
secondhand items, there are
many handmade baby afghans
available at thrift stores and
garage sales.
Cleaning your bathtub can be
a chore. To clean your tub with
ease, make a homemade
cleaner. Use 12 ounces of vine-
gar (heat it in the microwave)
and 12 ounces of Dawn dish-
washing liquid. Combine and
pour into a large spray bottle.
Spray your tub, scrub using a
bath puff, loofah or pantyhose

stuffed with a washcloth, then
rinse. For stubborn buildup,
leave the cleaning mixture on
for a few hours, then scrub away
The first reader tip shares an-
other way to clean your tub:
Second use for dryer sheets: I
scrub my tub out with used dryer
sheets. They don't scratch, and
they work well on soap scum. -
Trisha, Indiana
Keep your home tidy: Once I
got the house decluttered, I set
up household rules. The first
rule was training everyone to
put items back after they have
used them. When it comes to
bringing new stuff in the home,
there has to be a need and a
place for it first. If I want to buy
a new piece of clothing, it's
bought knowing that a similar
item will be thrown away or do-
nated if still in good condition. I
also have a lockbox in my room.

If the kids leave something lying
around after they go to bed, that
item goes in the lockbox and the
child can buy it back for $1. If the
child doesn't buy it back after a
month, it gets donated or tossed.
The item my kids have to buy
back the most is homework. The
money they pay me goes in the
family fun jar. Peach, North
Use an electric teapot: The
largest drains on my electrical
power are those elements that
heat. I shut off my huge 40-gallon
water heater at the electrical
panel. When I need hot water, I
use an electric teapot (Aroma
brand). It holds 1.5 liters of
water, which is enough to do the
dirty dishes. The water is boiling
hot in just a few minutes. I also
have a bucket in the shower to

containing all the pieces.
The dice are extremely
small, about 1/4 of an inch.
There are small bamboo
pieces there also.
The box has a cover
which, when lifted, reveals
five separate drawers con-
taining the tiles. There are
no markings on the box
My question is this: Are
the tiles ivory, as I do not
believe plastic was avail-
able in 1939? Does this
game hold any value?
Where I live, there are
about 10 people who
would like to learn this
game. Any information you
can pass on would be ap-
preciated. TB.S.,
Dear T.B.S.: Mahjong
sets were made in large
quantities during the late
19th and on into the 20th
century. The game contin-
ues to be played, al-
though it is not as
popular as it was prior to
World War II.
Plastic as an ivory looka-
like product has been in

use for more than 100
years, so your pieces could
be ivory, bone, or plastic.
Without several good pho-
tographs, all I can say is
dollar values range from
$50 to $200, depending on
material and how decora-
tive the box is.
New sets are available,
and there are numerous
mahjong clubs in Florida.
If you do a Google search
for mahjong clubs, you
may find one close to you.

college students Alejandro Velez
and Nikhil Arora were just a few
months short of careers in corpo-
rate banking when they learned
in a class lecture that it was possi-
ble to grow gourmet mushrooms on leftover
coffee grounds.
Velez was so struck by the idea that he
stayed after class to see if he could learn more.
Well, no, said the professor, he didn't have any
extra information. But he could connect Velez
with the one other student who'd asked about
the concept- Arora.
That was back in 2009, and since then the
two have be-

waste. The company has grown to more than
30 employees and received an Empactl00
award from the White House last fall, recog-
nizing it as one of the top 100 entrepreneurial
companies in the United States.
Their idea is to tap into the resurging inter-
est in good food and in knowing where that

food comes from, helping even city
dwellers get in touch with their
inner farmer.
"Everyone wants to connect with
their food," says Arora.
The pair started small, experi-
menting in Velez's fraternity
kitchen. At that point, Velez had
signed an offer to work in invest-
ment banking, but Arora says, they
thought, "what the heck, let's give
this thing a shot," and started 10
test buckets of mushrooms right be-
fore spring break.
When they returned, they found
that nine of the buckets were
washouts. But one was so gorgeous
they took it to Chez Panisse, the fa-
mous Berkeley restaurant founded
by Alice Waters, a pioneer in the
eat fresh, eat local movement, as
well as to the local Whole Foods
Market. Spurred by the interest
that initial crop generated as
well as a $5,000 grant for social in-
novation from the University of
California Berkeley they came to
a decision: Banking could wait

The first challenge was figuring
out how to grow the mushrooms.
They spent about eight months
"just knee-deep in coffee grounds,"
says Arora.
Their first sale was 3.14 pounds
to Whole Foods. Soon, they were
growing 500 pounds a week. That's
when they launched the grow-your-
own kits.
"We realized that our real pas-
sion was around creating this expe-
rience," says Arora. "We had all
these people asking if they can do
it at home."
The kit comes as a box that can
be set on a window sill, and just
needs to be opened and misted
twice a day (the mister is included).
Available at Home Depot, Whole
Foods and other stores, as well as
online, the kits cost $19.95 and
grows up to 1.5 pounds of pearl oys-
ter mushrooms on soil that is 100
percent recycled-plant waste. The
company has switched from coffee
waste to corn husks, wheat bran
and sawdust as the growing
medium, and has partnered with
Gourmet Mushrooms in Sebastopol
to produce the kits. The

the types of 'heads' (low pressure,
low volume sprinklers, typically) that
may be used with new installations."
Numerous states and some munic-
ipalities also are starting to offer tax
incentives for installing low-water-
use irrigation systems, Gibson said.
Water shortages already impact
every continent, according to the
United Nations. "Around 1.2 billion
people, or almost one-fifth of the
world's population, live in areas of
physical scarcity, and 500 million peo-
ple are approaching this situation."
Depleted water supplies are both a
natural and human-made phenome-
non, the agency says. "There is
enough freshwater on the planet for
six billion people but it is distributed
unevenly and too much of it is wasted,
polluted or unsustainably managed."
Planet, the national landscape in-
dustry association, lists five strate-
gies for smarter watering:
Making your soil healthier.
Break up and amend the soil 12 to 18
inches deep so plant roots can pen-
etrate deeper. "The most important
thing in landscaping is soil prepara-
tion and choosing plants suited to
the micro-climate where they're
going," said Kurt Bland a Planet
spokesman and president of Bland
Landscaping Co. in Apex, N.C.

Grouping plants with similar
water needs together. "Doing so will
create less stress on the plants,
which will help keep them disease-
free under low water conditions,"
the trade association says.
Choosing the right grasses for
lawns. "Turf grass is incredibly re-
silient and genetically geared to go
dormant in drought conditions," a
Planet handout says. 'Ask a profes-
sional for what drought tolerant
species will do well in your lawn
based on sun exposure and soil type."
Creating an irrigation plan that in-
cludes reclaimed water and low-con-
sumption drip systems. "Drip
irrigation, while saving water, can in-
crease vegetable yields and plant
growth," said Robert Kourik, author of
"Drip Irrigation for Every Landscape
and All Climates" (Metamorphic Press,
2009.) "The improper use of irrigation
creates a too-wet and too-dry cycle.
This adds more stress to the roots and
less-than-ideal growth. Drip irrigation
promotes the best growth possible."
Mulching, which retains mois-
ture, smothers weeds and adds nu-
trients to the soil.
"Water rates as they increase are
getting people's attention," Bland
said. "Ordinances requiring moni-
tors limiting how much water can be
used also seem to be working."

ST LOUIS One of every
three bites of food we con-
sume depends on pollina-
tion by honeybees, but these
overlooked contributors to
our food system are continu-
ing to die in stubbornly per-
plexing ways.
Beekeeping groups have
held exhaustive confer-
ences. Researchers have or-
ganized task forces. The U.S.
Department of Agriculture
has contributed some of its
stretched resources to track-
ing down the cause of the
mysterious deaths, and in a
report issued last month, de-
livered a frustratingly com-
plex answer: Many factors
may be responsible, from
stress to pesticides.
Now agricultural and
chemical heavyweights are
getting into the mix. Mon-
santo Co., which two years
ago bought an Israeli bee re-
search company, hosts an in-
dustry conference on bee
health at its headquarters in
Creve Coeur this month.
Bayer CropScience is build-
ing a 5,500-square-foot "bee

health center" in North Car-
olina, and with fellow chem-
ical giant, Syngenta, has
developed a "comprehen-
sive action plan" for bee
"The beekeeping industry
has always crawled on its
hands and knees to USDA
and universities, begging for
help," said Jerry Hayes, a
bee industry veteran re-
cently hired by Monsanto to
run its bee research efforts.
"Now we have this very large
company involved that
knows how important bees
are to agriculture."
And to the bottom line.
Bees pollinate up to $20 bil-
lion in American agricul-
tural crops, a number that
gets the attention of the in-
dustry Monsanto, for one,
owns Seminis, the country's
largest fruit and vegetable
seed producer and many
of those seeds depend on
bees. Beyond that, Monsanto
and its rivals have a finan-
cial interest in developing a
marketable cure that has so
far remained elusive.
But as researchers, and
now the private sector, puz-
zle over the issue, some sci-
entists and environmental

groups are pointing to a
major culprit: The very com-
panies working for solutions,
they contend, are a main
cause of bee deaths in the
first place.
In 2006, beekeepers
started noticing that bees
were abandoning their
hives, a phenomenon scien-
tists dubbed Colony Collapse
Disorder. Since then, the
American bee population
has dropped by an average
of 30 percent every year,
sending researchers, bee-
keepers and farmers into a
head-scratching frenzy to fig-
ure out the cause.
Specifically and somewhat
narrowly, the disorder is
being blamed on mites and
viruses. More broadly, re-
searchers say, it's a symptom
of an agricultural system
that relies too heavily on
chemicals and monocul-
tures, including the vast
swaths of corn and soybeans
in the Midwest.
While bees, historically,
have not foraged on these
crops for food, the wide-
spread presence of single
crops means fewer dining
options for the bees and
that could be leading to

weakened immune systems.
"We have been systemati-
cally eliminating flowers
that bees require for nutri-
tion and survival," explained
Marla Spivak, a University of
Minnesota entomologist and
one of the country's most
prominent bee researchers.
"We started using lots of in-
secticides, necessary be-
cause monoculture put out
feasts for crop pests. Insecti-
cides are designed to kill in-
sects, which depending on
the dose can also kill bees."
The finger, increasingly, is
getting pointed at a particu-
lar class of insecticides,
called neonicotinoids, that
have become widely used
over the last decade, largely
because they are thought to
be less toxic to mammals.
These neonicotinoids, man-
ufactured by Bayer and Syn-
genta, are used as seed
coatings on most of the corn
and soybeans planted in the
U.S. Most corn and soybean
crops grown here contain ge-
netically engineered traits
developed by Monsanto -
although there is no estab-
lished link between those

traits and bee health.
Some recent studies
suggest neonicotinoids -
by some estimates the
most widely used insecti-
cides in the world are
highly toxic to bees.
Published last year, a
study by Purdue Univer-
sity found that dead bees
that had foraged in and
around corn fields con-
tained high levels of neon-
icotinoid compounds. The
study was prompted by
massive bee die-offs that
happened in the spring,
when corn planters were
spewing neonicotinoid-
containing dust.
"I know, definitively, that
there's a relationship be-
tween treated seed and
spring die-offs," said
Christian Krupke, the
study's lead author. "It
(neonicotinoids) blows out
behind the planter and
gets in the air, it lands on
dandelions. It lands on the
bees, even."
While Krupke says
there's no direct link be-
tween neonicotinoids and
Colony Collapse Disorder,
he said, "anything that's a
stressor to bees is a con-
cern now. We know they're
weaker because of it."
The industry, however,
flatly denies any link be-

tween bee health and
the neonicotinoids it
"There's no scientific
evidence linking neonics
with bee health -period,"
said Dave Fischer, director
of environmental toxicity
and risk assessment at
Bayer CropScience.
Bayer, he explained, re-
lies heavily on bees for
pollination, particularly in
its canola fields in Canada,
where it brings in 70,000
hives a year to pollinate
"It would be a poor busi-
ness model if we were poi-
soning the bees we depend
on," he noted.
The debate over neoni-
cotinoids is likely to get
more heated, particularly
in the wake of a two-year
European Union ban on
the compounds, announced
on April 29. The vote on the
matter was split with 15
of the 27 EU members vot-
ing for the ban.
"It's a controversial sub-
ject," said Gene E. Robin-
son, director of the Bee
Research Facility at the
University of Illinois. "Not
all studies agree with each
other. It's a subject that
bears more scrutiny"
It's also one that some
researchers think is al-
most unnecessary
While the industry
claims the use of neoni-
cotinoids on seeds boosts
yields by 6 to 12 bushels an

acre, many question that.
Krupke has done side-
by-side field trials to de-
termine whether the seed
treatments improve yield.
"We have not found any
difference in yield or root
damage nothing," he
said. "It doesn't mean it
never works. But it means
we certainly don't need to
be putting it on every ker-
nel of corn."
Environmental groups
agree, and have called for
an EU-style mindset until
links are more solidly
'Any kind of reasonably
cautious approach -
given the severity of the
problem would dictate
that we should act sooner
rather than later," said
Doug Gurian-Sherman, of
the Union of Concerned
Scientists, a Washington-

based science advocacy
group. "And that would be

secticides, especially since
we know they have such

Neal Bergman remem-
bers a seven-year stretch
in the 2000s when crop
planes doused cotton
fields in the Missouri
Bootheel with the insecti-
cide malathion.
"They sprayed 400,000
acres of cotton every
week," he said. "It didn't
matter how the wind was
blowing or what time of
day it was. They sprayed
over people, over animals,
over beehives -
For Bergman, who oper-
ates the state's largest bee
operation, it was the dous-
ing of beehives, naturally,

that worried him most. He
says his bee population
plummeted, costing him $1
million and almost putting
him out of business.
Since then, he's been
wary and working hard
to keep his bees alive. He
uses several medicines
and gives his hives protein
"I don't think the pollen
they get is as good any-
more," Bergman said.
"And that's where they get
their protein."
Bergman, echoing many
beekeepers, says more co-
ordination is required
among farmers so they
don't spray chemicals
when the bees are foraging
a particular crop. The la-
bels on the chemicals say
that farmers shouldn't
apply them when bees are
present but some don't
pay attention, and enforce-
ment is lax.
Human behavior, he says,

beekeepers in urban and
suburban areas have
started keeping bees in the
hope that they can con-
tribute to a solution.
Robert Sears, president
of the Eastern Missouri
Beekeepers Association,
says he thinks that there's
a greater awareness of the
problem, and that bee-
keepers are learning to
maintain healthy hives
with a multi-pronged ap-
proach, using medicines
and good hive manage-
ment techniques.
"I think the best practices
are moving in the direction
of using soft chemicals and
organic treatments," he
said. "There are also me-
chanical ways to manipu-

But time, many worry, is
getting short.
