Dozens of people flooded Facebook pages during the weekend to complain and point fingers about the WalkerFest concert that never was. Benatars tour buses exited town around 5 p.m. minutes after receiving a check for the bands fee and two hours before the scheduled performance was to begin. Benatar blamed the incident on an unsafe stage. She wrote on her website she feared the stage collapsing under the weight of her bands equipment and didnt want to place band members and the public in danger. Fireworks and horses dont mix Work could restart next weekA.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterThe harvesters could get cranking soon in Kings Bay, though not until after parties involved in a disagreement about the conduct of the bays filamentous algae cleanup draw up some papers and get them signed. The parties Save Crystal River Inc., One Rake at a Time and Save the Manatee Club met in Crystal River City Manager Andy Houstons office last week to hammer out details that should allow the mechanized bay cleanup to resume several months after the lyngbya harvesters went idle. Hopefully, we will have everything going by next week, said Art Jones, cleanup director. We already missed a lot of valuable time. The agreement is a bit cumbersome, but I think everyone wants us to get Agencies get updatesPATFAHERTY Staff writerLECANTO Local nonprofit agencies heard an explanation of United Ways new funding focus, tips on using social media and an update on 2-1-1 services. For its annual Day of Action, United Way of Citrus County focused on nonprofits. Monday it held a summit for the leaders of local nonprofits titled Live United: Driving Change Together. Amy Meek, chief executive officer of United Way of Citrus County, explained the Consensus reached in Kings Bay cleanup talks Day of Action serves nonprofits PATFAHERTY Staff writerBEVERLY HILLS Beau may be one of the biggest horses in the county, but he doesnt like fireworks. Neither do his two barn mates. And their owner, Elaine Corwin of Pine Ridge is dreading the Fourth of July fireworks season. For the giant black Percheron and many other horses, the sound of fireworks is frightening and can scare otherwise docile animals into a wild stampede. Some horses panic at the sound of fireworks, Corwin said. They run blindly when theyre panicked. Her fear for her horses and others is that they will crash through paddock fences, run into the streets, killing or injuring people and themselves. Some of them arent alarmed by the sound; others, it drives them berserk, said Dr. Richard Dunn, a veterinarian at Countryside Animal Clinic. They flee when they hear something that theyre not used to. Its their primary method of defense. And the burst of light by fireworks at night could have a similar effect. He said scared horses will sometimes run in their pasture until theyre ready to drop. He suggested if people around the county have neighbors with horses, to just be a good neighbor and think of them if contemplating using fireworks.

Why should your dentist inject you with these cosmetic treatments? My training was concentrated on head & neck anatomy. I understand where these muscles are located and how they work. We take our time to ensure proper results. I take a conservative approach to achieve a natural appearance, then have you back in 2 weeks for enhancements. We purchase directly from the manufacturer, so no counterfeit products. Volunteers pitch in to clean Kings Bay Special to the ChronicleMore than 40 YMCA summer campers and staff helped Monday with the One Rake at a Time lyngbya cleanup of the swimming area at Hunters Spring in Crystal River. They were joined by a dozen volunteers from Nature Coast EMS, seven Kings Bay Rotarians and another dozen community volunteers. More than 2 tons of lyngbya were removed. Dunn said there are things horse owners can do. He said they can try desensitizing the horse to noise; they can use sedatives or even put cotton in horses ears if they will tolerate it. As for resulting injuries, he has gotten calls for horses with lacerations from running into fences while trying to get away. The clinic has also been called about frightened horses running hours on end, becoming overheated. These horses have to be sedated and sometimes need intravenous fluids. Veterinary technician Jamie White said she can expect to spend from dusk to about 2 a.m. on July 4th outside with her four horses trying to keep them calm. I feel like if there wasnt anyone there, they might run through the fence, she said. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office emphasized, in Florida, possession or use of illegal fireworks is classified as a misdemeanor and violators can be arrested. While the sheriffs office understands residents are going to want to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, we encourage everyone to celebrate safely, spokeswoman Lindsay Ubinas said. We encourage residents to take full advantage of organized events where safety standards are being met. HORSESContinued from Page A1 We were ready, willing and able to deliver our show but the stage was not! the website states. God forbid something would have happened, as weve all seen before, and someone were to get hurt. Its simply unacceptable to put people in this position and thats exactly the position we were in. Deborah Nader said that wasnt the case. Nader, a Clearwater promoter hired by event creator Dr. Dennis Walker to produce the concert, said organizers met all the bands requests to beef up the stage and that an Inverness structural engineer had certified the stage safe by 4:45 p.m. Walker, an Inverness cardiologist, organized the event as a fundraiser for Wounded Warriors, Habitat for Humanity and United Way of Citrus County. Two weeks ago he moved it from the Citrus County Speedway to the fairgrounds livestock arena pavilion to guard against rainy weather. Walker said in a statement he was heartbroken by the cancellation. To everyone who purchased a ticket to my charity concert event, all the volunteer members of the WalkerFest committee who worked so many months and so hard, the sponsors, the advertisers, Rustic Ranch restaurant, all of the charities for which I had hoped to raise money, and all the volunteers who showed up to help on the day of the event, I need to say that although I had no control over the cancellation of the show, I am deeply saddened by what happened, and I will do my best to correct this wrong. Walker said he has not made a decision yet on how to proceed with refunds. He encouraged ticket holders to check the event website, walkerfest.org, for updates. About 1,000 tickets were sold, Walker said. Many ticket holders stood in the rain waiting for the gates to open at 5 p.m., according to numerous Facebook posts. Benatars crew arrived at about 9 a.m. Friday and found substandard staging and unsafe conditions, according to the groups website. TMC Productions of Inverness provided the stage. TMC owner Chris Moling did not return phone calls for comment. Despite the repeated attempts of our representatives insisting that the infrastructure of the stage be fixed, by approximately 5 p.m. the situation was still not resolved and it was deemed not safe to put one single piece of equipment on that stage, Benatars website states. Nader, however, said Moling provided everything the crew requested, including proof of insurance and certification from an engineer with the stages manufacturer that it was safe. She said workers added better bracing, leveling and cushioned platforms. By 4:45 p.m. 15 minutes before gates were opened the public a structural engineer with Furman and Hilpert Engineering Inc. of Inverness certified the stages safety, she said. Company coowner Fred Hilpert confirmed Naders account but declined further comment. At 5 p.m., Nader said she reluctantly handed a check to Benatars representatives on the promise Benatar would stay and perform, likely starting the concert about two hours late. Instead, the band and its crew immediately left the fairgrounds. I had to give them the check, Nader said. They were saying they would perform. There is no precedent in our company for an artist to take the check and leave. Nader would not say how much the band was paid, but she said her fee of $3,000 from Walker is 5 percent of the bands fee, which would make it about $60,000 to Benatar. She said most contracts call for the performer to receive half the fee up front. Benatar said on her website the fee was set aside for a makeup concert. She also encouraged fans to hang on to their tickets for a makeup concert. Walker said he was notified of a problem at the site at around 11 a.m. but didnt realize the seriousness of the issue until he pulled up to the fairgrounds as the Benatar buses were leaving. I have never had any direct contact with Pat Benatars organization, he said. Benatar has not contacted me regarding rescheduling the show. Fairgrounds manager Hal Porter, who was on hand assisting as a volunteer, said workers did their best. Im extremely saddened for the folks at WalkerFest. They did a lot of hard work, Porter said. I saw the stage. Im no engineer, but I certainly thought it was safe. TMC had an engineer sign off on it. I dont know how much safer you could be.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. CONCERTContinued from Page A1 Pat Benatarcanceled Friday concert.

Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder for gunning down Martin on Feb. 26, 2012, as the unarmed black teenager, wearing a hoodie on a dark, rainy night, walked from a convenience store through the gated townhouse community where he was staying. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe Suncoast Parkway could eventually link Tampa to Jacksonville, according to an official with the Florida Department of Transportation. But dont expect a direct run to Northeast Florida anytime soon. This connection could involve Citrus County through the currently delayed road project known as Suncoast Parkway 2, but it would be part of a projected plan that may be 50 years down the road. It was the subject of a presentation Thursday in Citrus Hills to the Florida Engineering Society. Making the presentation was FDOT administrator Huiwei Shen, Intergovernmental Programs, Office of Planning Policy. Shen was invited by Jeffrey Rogers, director, Citrus County Engineering Division. Forty-two people attended, including some from surrounding counties, all curious about future road projects. Eric Williams, assistant city manager/manager in training, city of Inverness, who attended with Dale Malm, Inverness interim community development director, said the presentation was very informative. According to Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston, who attended the meeting with Dave Burnell, the citys public works director, FDOT staff showed a map that projected the proposed connection beyond Suncoast Parkway 2. Asked if the map as yet linked to Jacksonville, Houston replied: Its going that way. None of it is funded right now. Its all conceptual. Houston said Shen presented information from the Florida Future Corridors Tampa Bay Northeast study area concept report, details of which can be found online at www.flfuturecorridors.org/ tampa_concept.htm. Shen said on Monday that her audience was most interested in the Tampa Bay to Northeast Florida study area. I got a lot of questions about Suncoast 2, Shen said. The Future Corridors planning initiative is actually a 50-year planning time horizon that were looking at. And connecting Tampa Bay to Jacksonville through Citrus County is just one planning choice. Suncoast 2, if we considered that alternative, its just going to be one of the recommended solutions at this point, Shen explained. As I told the engineers who were at the meeting, at this point what weve done is a very initial evaluation pulling the data together, painting a profile of the region. We havent even gotten into specific recommendations.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Study seeks route to Jacksonville Suncoast Parkway eyed as possible connection, but project is decades away CHRISVANORMER Staff writerKitties may be found stashed in every nook and cranny at the Citrus County Animal Services shelter these days, thanks to a feline population explosion. So the shelter is offering $9 cat adoptions through Saturday, courtesy of Friends of Citrus County Animal Services. We are still feeling the effects of the spring breeding season, and stray cats and kittens continue to pour in, said Pattie Amon, operations manager.Our regular cat adoption fee is very lowat $35, which includes spay/neuter, all vaccinations, feline leukemia test and a microchip, but we hope this special promotion will really be a boost to our cat adoptions. Animal Services staff and friends have been working successfully with the countys Strive for Life program approved in November to find more homes for animals and reduce the euthanasia rate. In April, Dr. Julie Rosenberger, director and staff veterinarian of Animal Services, reported to the Board of County Commissioners that 1,999 cats were euthanized last year, a rate of 67 percent of the cats taken into the shelter. Although it sounds high, the 2012 rate was lower than in previous years 79 percent in 2011, 81 percent in 2010 and 84 percent in 2009 and staff and volunteers are striving to take that statistic down. We have been lucky to transfer quite a few cats and kittens to rescue groups such as Precious Paws, Humanitarians and Home at Last, but they are sometimes as full as the shelter in terms of numbers, Amon said. A few of our registered volunteers foster kittens, and some of the shelter staff have taken the small ones home to hand feed. I personally fostered three kittens (Libby, Lacie and Landry) in my spare bathroom until they were over 2 pounds, and they found wonderful loving homes, but it was a labor. The Strive for Life program tries not only to reduce euthanasia but to reduce the numbers of animals born. At the end of the day, it is clear that the answer is to spay and neuter our pets, Amon said. Our local veterinarians offer competitive pricing to spay and neuter, and there are organizations popping up that assist with low-cost spay and neuter. One such organization is SnippetCitrus, which is constantly raising money to assist economically challenged families. They can be reached at 352-503-3237. To adopt a cat this week for $9 plus license fee, go to the shelter at 4030 S. Airport Rd., Inverness.

Kitten kaboodle MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Animal Services has found itself with a surplus of spring kittens. Operations manager Pattie Amon has a special offer for adoptions this week called $9 for 9 Lives, a discounted price on the regular adoption fee of $35, plus a $5 license fee. All cats and kittens adopted from the county shelter will have been spayed or neutered and have up-to-date on immunizations. Bonanza of kittens leads to special offer from county animal shelter Septic truck wrecks An Able Septic Service truck operated by Inverness resident Bradley Wayne St. Clair, 26, overturned on Interstate 75 at State Road 56 in Pasco County shortly after noon Monday when the driver lost control after the front right tire blew out, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. While a minor fuel leak was reported, the trucks load was contained. Able Septic is based in Crystal River. St. Clair was not injured, the FHP reported.Special to the Chronicle

Todays Highlight in History: On June 25, 1973, former White House Counsel John W. Dean began testifying before the Senate Watergate Committee, implicating top administration officials, including President Richard Nixon as well as himself, in the Watergate scandal and cover-up. On this date: In 1876, Lt. Col. Colonel George A. Custer and his 7th Cavalry were wiped out by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana. In 1910, President William Howard Taft signed the White-Slave Traffic Act, more popularly known as the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for immoral purposes. In 1962, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Engel v. Vitale, ruled 6-1 that recitation of a state-sponsored prayer in New York State public schools was unconstitutional. Ten years ago: The Recording Industry Association of America threatened to sue hundreds of individual computer users who were illegally sharing music files online. Five years ago: A divided U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that allowed capital punishment for people convicted of raping children younger than 12; the ruling also invalidated laws in five other states that allowed executions for child rape that did not result in the death of the victim. One year ago: With BeBe Winans singing God Bless America, a final steel beam was lifted atop a new World Trade Center skyscraper in New York City. Todays Birthdays: Singer Carly Simon is 68. Rock musician Allen Lanier (Blue Oyster Cult) is 67. Rock musician Ian McDonald (Foreigner; King Crimson) is 67. Actorcomedian Jimmie Walker is 66. Thought for Today: Four hostile newspapers are more to be feared than a thousand bayonets.

We are now waiting on papers to be drawn up and signed, Rose said. He said the administrative challenge filed by his organization against One Rake at a Times permit is in a 30day abeyance, or hold, while they work to hammer out a deal. We should have everything done before that time is up, Rose said. We never wanted to file a challenge and have been talking and engaging the Save Crystal River folks since, and hoped we could come to an understanding that would not harm the bay. He said both sides reached out to the other in this process and he is hoping the lines of communication can stay open while they work to implement what they agreed on. Jones said the talks were extremely positive and he knows Rose is committed to and wants to see the bay cleaned up properly. Save the Manatee Club had objected to the use of a big harvester to rid the bay of the noxious lyngbya, claiming harm was being done mostly because of the turbidity, or cloudiness, generated by the machine. The group also alleged dredging because of the manner in which the harvester was being used. The club wanted a monitoring regime instituted. The cleanup effort was voluntarily stopped, but Save the Manatee Club ended up filing a challenge to One Rake at a Times harvester permit. Meanwhile, the Southwest Florida Water Management District unveiled a monitoring regime that Save Crystal River Inc. reluctantly accepted. The water district plan calls for, among other things, specified monitoring of water samples by a qualified individual during all mechanical harvesting activities. organizations new webbased program nonprofits can use to promote their events, attract volunteers and list inkind donations they need. It has the ability to get people involved, she said. Its a great way to provide a service, not just to United Way, but to other organizations as well. Training sessions for the site are being scheduled for July 16. Meek also explained changes in how United Way funds organizations. Instead of the traditional allocation system, it now awards grants targeting specific areas. Six grants were given this funding year for programs dealing with education, income and health, which are national focuses as well. Meek said adult education is an important area, because there are 17,000 adults in Citrus County without a GED (high school equivalency diplomas) and only 15 percent of the adult population has a bachelors degree or higher. The focus on income covers job readiness and financial literacy. She said 16,000 families in the county do not have savings accounts and for many available jobs, some training or certification is required. Targeting health, Meek said the county has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the state. Providing food for the vulnerable population is another aspect of that focus. The grant money will grow each year, she said. We are really trying to target the root causes of social need. Those attending Monday also got a quick course on social media Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram by United Way intern Rita West. She explained how agencies can use these services to promote their activities and events. They also got an update on 2-1-1 services, which can be a tool for agencies and can be accessed by the public online, by email or text message.

Associated PressSTARKE A former escort service owner convicted in the slayings of two Florida women was granted a temporary stay of execution Monday, hours before he was to have received a lethal injection for one of those deaths. Marshall Lee Gore had been scheduled to die at the Florida State Prison at 6 p.m. for the 1988 slaying of Robyn Novick, a 30year-old exotic dancer.

Interestrates Associated PressMore signs of distress in Chinas economy and rising bond yields led to a broad sell-off in stocks Monday, leaving key market indexes down more than 5 percent from their record highs last month. It was the first 5 percent decline referred to on Wall Street as a pullback since November. Pullbacks that occur during bull markets tend to be nasty and brutish but short, said John Manley, chief equity strategist at Wells Fargo Funds Management. He said its common to get declines of 3 percent to 7 percent as the market restores a reverence to risk to the investing public. U.S. trading started with a slump Monday. The market recovered much of its loss, then fell back again. By the close of trading the big stock indexes were clinging to modest gains for the second quarter, which ends Friday. Before Wall Street opened for trading on Monday, Asian markets were already sharply lower, led by a 5 percent plunge in Chinas Shanghai Composite Index. That was the indexs biggest loss in four years. The decline was prompted by a government crackdown on off-balance sheet lending, which made investors worry about Chinas economic growth. The selling spread to Europe, where Frances benchmark stock index fell 1.7 percent, Germanys 1.2 percent. U.S. traders took one look at that and started dumping stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average fell as much as 248 points in the first hour of trading. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note spiked to its highest in almost two years as the sell-off brought down prices of U.S. government debt. Gold and other metals also fell. Stocks got closer to break-even around midday before falling again in the last hour. The Dow finished down 139.84 points, or 0.9 percent, at 14,659.56. The S&P 500 index fell 19.34 points, or 1.2 percent, to 1,573.09. The Nasdaq dropped 36.49 points, or 1.1 percent, to 3,320.76. All 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 fell. The biggest drop was 1.8 percent for bank and financial stocks. Bank of America fell the most among major bank stocks, giving up 39 cents, or 3.1 percent, to $12.30. The S&P 500 is down 5.7 percent from its all-time of 1,669 on May 21. The Nasdaq has fallen 5.2 from its own recent high on that day. Markets remain vulnerable to any comments from the Federal Reserve about its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, which have kept interest rates at historic lows and helped drive the stock markets rally the last four years. On Wednesday and Thursday, the S&P plunged 3.9 percent after the central bank said its bond-buying program could wrap up by the middle of next year as long as economic conditions continue to improve. Stocks edged up Friday, but still had their worst week in two months. I think investors are overreacting to the prospects of a change in Fed policy, said Gary Thayer, chief macro strategist for Wells Fargo Advisors. He noted that unemployment is down, inflation is low. These are good economic conditions. Gold fell $14.90, or 1.2 percent, to $1,277.10. Other metals were down, too. Crude oil rose $1.49, or 1.6 percent, to $95.18 per barrel. Bond sales, China news depress market Associated PressSpecialist John Alatzas works Monday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. BusinessBRIEFS Boost for cars or bust? Ethanol debate heats upWASHINGTON Its a dilemma for drivers: Do they choose a gasoline thats cheaper and cleaner even if, as opponents say, it could damage older cars and motorcycles? Thats the peril and promise of a highethanol blend of gasoline known as E15. The fuel contains 15 percent ethanol, compared with the current 10 percent norm sold at most U.S. gas stations. The higher ethanol blend is currently sold at fewer than two dozen stations in the Midwest, but could spread to other regions as the Obama administration considers whether to require more ethanol in gasoline.Neiman Marcus plans to raise up to $100 million in IPONEW YORK Luxury retailer Neiman Marcus plans to raise up to $100 million by returning to the stock market with an initial public offering. That amount is likely to change, though, as bankers gauge investor interest. The plan to go public, announced in a regulatory filing Monday, comes about eight years after private equity firms TPG Capital and Warburg Pincus bought Neiman Marcus for $5.1 billion. Neiman Marcus has benefited from affluent shoppers who are willing to drop $1,000 for a pair of shoes. During the recession, Neiman Marcus was not as hurt by the consumer spending pullback as other retailers, because the wealthy suffered less in the poor economy.New Samsung tablets mimic Galaxy phonesNEW YORK Samsung is expanding its lineup of tablet computers and making them look more like its Galaxy smartphones, as it hopes to translate its success in phones to the tablet market, where Apple is dominant. Samsung Electronics Co., the secondlargest maker of tablets after Apple, on Monday said it is putting three new tablets in the Galaxy Tab 3 series on sale in the U.S. on July 7. The cheapest, a $199 device, will have a screen that measures 7 inches diagonally. An 8-inch model will go for $299 and a 10-inch one for $399. The Tab line is Samsungs value brand, undercutting the price of similar Apple models. Samsungs premium tablets are in the Note line, which include styluses. The 7-inch and 10-inch tablets had Tab 2 equivalents, but the 8-inch model is new, and coincides closely in size with Apples iPad Mini, which came out late last year.Promise of price cut on hospital bills is in limboWASHINGTON Huge list prices charged by hospitals are drawing increased attention, but a federal law meant to limit what the most financially vulnerable patients can be billed doesnt seem to be making much difference. A provision in President Barack Obamas health care overhaul says most hospitals must charge uninsured patients no more than what people with health insurance are billed. The goal is to protect patients from medical bankruptcy, a problem that will not go away next year when Obamas law expands coverage for millions.Studies find methane in Pennsylvania drinking waterPITTSBURGH New research in Pennsylvania demonstrates that its hard to nail down how often natural gas drilling is contaminating drinking water: One study found high levels of methane in some water wells near gas wells, while another found some serious methane pollution occurring naturally, far away from drilling. The findings represent a middle ground between critics of the drilling technique, known as hydraulic fracturing, who claim it causes widespread contamination, and an industry that suggests contamination is rare or nonexistent. The contamination from drilling is not an epidemic. Its a minority of cases, said Rob Jackson, a Duke University researcher and co-author of the study released Monday. But he added the team found that serious contamination from bubbly methane is much more prevalent in some water wells within about half a mile of gas drilling sites. Methane is an odorless gas that in high concentrations can be explosive and deadly.Dissension and fiscal woes beset the Girl ScoutsNEW YORK Given the friction and financial woes facing the Girl Scouts these days, perhaps its time for a giant friendship circle. Under that long-standing tradition, a ring of Scouts clasp hands and give a little squeeze, accompanied by a silent wish of good will. Just a year after its centennial celebrations, the Girl Scouts of the USA finds itself in a different sort of squeeze. Its interconnected problems include declining membership and revenues, a dearth of volunteers, rifts between leadership and grassroots members, a pension plan with a $347 million deficit, and an uproar over efforts by many local councils to sell venerable summer camps. The tangle of difficulties has prompted one congressman to request an inquiry by the House Ways and Means Committee into the pension liabilities and the sale of camps.Vodafone launches bid for Kabel DeutschlandLONDON Britains Vodafone PLC has launched a takeover bid for Germanys biggest cable operator, Kabel Deutschland, as part of its push to dominate media services in its biggest market. The British cellphone company with wide international interests on Monday confirmed the $10.2 billion deal. Vodafone Group Chief Executive Vittorio Colao said the deal aims to tap growing German demand for fast broadband and data services.Ousted Mens Wearhouse exec. chairman quits boardNEW YORK Ousted Mens Wearhouse founder George Zimmer has quit the companys board. Zimmer was fired as the companys executive chairman last week. On Monday he submitted a letter resigning from the board. Zimmer said in the letter that its clear from his firing that the board is determined to avoid addressing his growing concerns with recent board decisions and the companys direction.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013 Get right with GodI think its important for people to realize that God is neither Republican nor Democrat. God isnt even an American. All the land, water and air on the Earth belong to Him, yet we act as if it is all ours to do with as we please. We overpump the aquifers to fill our pools, green our golf courses and grow the grass we cannot eat. We pollute and pillage all in the name of jobs. When were finished digging up tar sands, coal, and fracking for natural gas, what will be left? Only the pollution and waste. Only the destruction of the country and the world. We claim to be a Christian nation, but our destructive behaviors do not honor Him. We do not honor Him with war. We do not honor Him with our condemnation of the sick and poor. We do not honor Him with our unjust treatment of immigrants whom we bring to the United States so we can enjoy the benefits of cheap labor while vilifying and prosecuting them. We shamefully turn our southern border into a war zone while demanding more security. Our history with Mexico is shameful. Not the history of a Christian nation. The citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because they turned their backs on their neighbors. It had nothing to do with their lewd and lascivious behavior. We are not entitled to ill treat our neighbors national or global, man or animal. We are not entitled to destroy the planet. We are expected to be good stewards of the Earth and its inhabitants. In this way, we can glorify the Lord and thank Him for His many blessings.Kathy Dobronyi Inverness Edward Snowden, the youthful information technician who leaked our nations top-secret cyber-spy program, has made his mark on history. I suspect his moment of fame will last more than 15 minutes. And after all the debate about what he did, history will have to decide if its really a moment of infamy. History tells us about the changes in mankinds history. Some major changes go unnoticed in their own time. But eras of paradigm shifts get contemporary attention. People were aware of the Industrial Revolution when it was happening. Most people know were now in a Cyber Revolution. And, apparently, Snowden is warning us that we need to pay better attention. Snowden revealed that our top security entity, the National Security Agency, gathers electronic transmissions (phone calls, emails, etc.) that originate in the U.S. or traverse the country from overseas. But its not just the NSA. A telephone app soon to be sold to the public is capable of looking at an incoming call and presenting the receiver with an impressive screenshot of (the callers) personal and professional data: Facebook pictures, email contacts, mutual friends. Forbes Magazine reports that a Target employee responsible for data mining customer preferences figured out 25 products that women buy that indicate theyre pregnant. From sales slips, he can even predict with some accuracy the babys due date. So Target sends out special coupons to encourage shopping for the baby. Defense contractor Raytheon boasts in an ad that the computer chips it makes for the Patriot defense missile system are as small as a speck of pepper. Google tells me that the online ads I receive may be based on an email Id received and read. It makes me wish for the days when the biggest threat to my privacy was the giggling teenager listening in on the telephone party line. Perhaps in this age of plug-ins, Facebook and Twitter, our definition of privacy has changed. Were in an information free-forall. Or free-fall. Still, when it comes to data mining, maybe theres a difference between business and government. According to Snowden, at least, the U.S. government should be acting differently. Snowden says he doesnt want his leaking to become about him. But, it has. His choices, even his reaction in an interview, guarantee it. Snowden flew to Hong Kong to do his leaking. Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China, a nation not known for its commitment to the civil liberties that concern Snowden. He defended his choice, saying Hong Kong had a spirited commitment to free speech. Really? Freedom House, a free press advocacy organization that supports Snowden, downgraded Hong Kongs media freedom score this May, citing several violent and technical attacks against reporters, websites and media entities. And while Snowden was meeting with reporters, a publisher of a political magazine banned in China was beaten in Hong Kong. Snowden added that China was no enemy of the U.S. Again, really? Snowden must know, firsthand, how damaging Chinese hacking is to U.S. businesses, national defense and our press. Snowden is highly intelligent, informed and a walking databank of U.S. secrets. He knows he will soon be a hunted, wanted man. So maybe he chose Hong Kong because of a memorandum of understanding between Hong Kong authorities and the United Nations that has enhanced the protections there for asylumseekers and refugees. (In a Cold War-worthy ironic twist, the Russians announced theyre considering offering Snowden asylum.) Given that Snowdens choice for self-exile, Iceland, requires he be on Icelandic soil in order to apply for asylum, and that Interpol can have him taken off any plane en route, he clearly knew what was coming. Snowden apparently was staying at a $650 a night luxury hotel just up the road from the CIA station in Hong Kong. In a filmed interview, he makes reference to it, saying, Im sure theyre going to be very busy for the next week. Snowdens delighted grin reveals hes enjoying the fuss. If Snowden is reveling in the melodrama, it comes with the territory: a young male who envisions himself with only a lightsaber against the Death Star. Or a bow and arrow against Smaug. Im not discounting his idealism. He clearly is genuinely concerned about NSAs massive data-mining program. He described the U.S. spy program, meant to protect us against terrorists and enemies, as a panopticon a composite of two Greek words that means to see all. Before we try to see all, maybe we should try to see clearly, at least these two points: First, NSA surveillance is not new (see the Patriot Act of 2001) and its now regulated (see FISA, 2006). But as The Daily Shows John Oliver said, Instead of being spied on by the executive branch, it turns out were being spied on by all the branches. ... No one is saying that (the government) broke any laws; were just saying its a little bit weird that (it) didnt have to. Second, omniscient data gathering is part of the worldwide Cyber Revolution; countries and corporations with far less commitment to civil liberties than the United States are doing the same.Donna Brazile is a senior Democratic strategist, a political commentator and contributor to CNN and ABC News, and a contributing columnist to Ms. Magazine and O, the Oprah Magazine.

This has stymied government at all levels from meeting current and future challenges by supplanting consensus with polarization. Ever since Scott Adams anointed himself as county governments ardent critic upon assuming office as District 5 County Commissioner in November of last year, polarization has also supplanted the consensus needed to meet the challenges facing Citrus County. The role of critic can certainly serve to promote more efficient and transparent government, as well as the public good. Nevertheless, Adams has shunned constructive criticism for an incessant drumbeat of destructive ad hominem attacks on fellow commissioners and top county government staff members. Most recently, Adams used the forum of the Citrus County Council, an influential civic organization, to once again throw political hand grenades at his fellow commissioners by casting aspersions that they do not have the publics best interest at heart and that he absolutely does not expect them to do the right thing. At a following county commission meeting, Adams continued his ad hominem attacks with a spurious poke in the eye of County Administrator Brad Thorpe during a budget transfer discussion of grant funds. Unsuccessful in a previous attempt to fire Thorpe without cause, Adams again sowed seeds of distrust by calling for an exit audit upon Thorpes retirement despite two independent audits of the funds annually. While Adams may think he is the only commissioner who represents county residents, he is not. The voters also elected Commissioner Dennis Damato three times. Commissioner Joe Meek defeated a popular incumbent in his first run for county office and earned re-election by a comfortable margin. First-term Commissioners Rebecca Bays and J.J. Kenney also defeated incumbents to gain their seats. The role of critic can be a constructive force for good government if based on reason. However, when the role of critic plays to emotions with ad hominem attacks, it becomes a dysfunctional force that erodes trust, stymies consensus and polarizes the community. In exercising his role as critic as one member of a five-member governing body, Commissioner Adams is encouraged to be a constructive, not a dysfunctional force for governance. Given that the choice is his, he should consider that it is often easier to see the mote in another persons eye than the cinder in ones own eye.

Thank you, all!Denise Burke Crystal RiverLip service and futile actionHeads are in the sand at all levels of government in Florida, as well as across our nation. In our state, at our back door, is an abundance of evidence that politicians and administrators refuse to acknowledge the root cause of water resource depletion and degradation. Without water, the economic engine they continuously hope to exploit for themselves and their supporters, and on behalf of the public in general, will not run. Water withdrawals have lowered our precious aquifer to the point that spring flows, river ecology, natural surface retention bodies and municipal and private systems that feed on this source are on the brink of shut down. An example of this obvious disdain and practiced denial is water permitting to private business under the guise of new jobs and the economic stimulus of new business. And business pays nothing for this inventory/commodity that belongs first to nature and second to us. Stewardship baloney! The basis for this entire fiasco is people. A thousand or more each day cross our border (the state line). We build and create more infrastructure and public service. And the pressure on resources, like a cancer, manifests itself in dying chemicalladen rivers, dying estuary plant life and disappearing animals and aquatic creatures. Upside down natural responses such as the algal explosions alter natures balance. Wells have salt water intruding and/or mineral poisoning. Even rain patterns have gone negative. Our school children know that rain is not some magical occurrence or God given gift. It requires surface water and humidity from vaporization of same to charge clouds that in turn replenish water bodies and the earths substrata below. Today, demand exceeds supply and the results are negative. This aint rocket science! Vast amounts of our taxpaid money is spent on crumbling and/or depreciated capital improvements. Support services for an unchecked population expansion outpaces these tax revenues, impact fees, licensing and other ingenious methods for raising funds under the category of public welfare such as a landfill. Landfills are essential to the growth process. Once full, in just a few decades they can be reclaimed for development. They must be important, our local state senator has one. Look around. It is nothing but a Ponzi scheme. The downward spiral tightens daily. The root of all this evil? More people! Meanwhile, back at the ranch, state and local government is always in a dither about how to attract new business and get more people to come to our community. It goes without saying, that our community suffers after the carrying capacity is exceeded. Have you ever had this thought, recently? Where the ... is all this traffic coming from? Now add a recession. Did you see the 60 pages of mice type, for 1,461 properties with delinquent real estate taxes in the Chronicle(Friday, May 3)? There goes the tax base and scary plunges in revenue, on top of Dukes reneging. Too many people. A bitter pill to swallow, debate or acknowledge. Well never see a legal mandate in our state to halt the overwhelming influx of people or restrict development. Its like running from a tidal wave. Barring a natural miracle, we have exceeded our environmental balance.

Ethan is the first rhino calf born in a U.S. zoo to survive and thrive after being conceived by artificial insemination. Immigration bill clears Senate test with 67 votesWASHINGTON Sweeping immigration legislation has cleared a key Senate hurdle with votes to spare, signaling likely passage later in the week for stepped-up security along the border with Mexico and a chance at citizenship for millions living in the country illegally. The vote was 67-27, well above the 60 needed to advance. The vote came as President Barack Obama campaigned from the White House in favor of the measure, while outnumbered conservative critics attacked it without letup in speeches and electronic appeals. Senate passage on Thursday or Friday would send the issue to the House, where conservative Republicans in the majority oppose citizenship for anyone living in the country illegally.Rights case ruling favors transgender girlDENVER A Colorado civil rights panel has ruled that a suburban Colorado Springs school district likely discriminated against a 6year-old transgender girl when it prevented her from using the girls bathroom at her elementary school. Coy Mathiss family raised the issue after school officials said the first-grader could use restrooms in either the teachers lounge or in the nurses office, but not the girls bathroom at Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain. Kathryn and Jeremy Mathis have said the districts decision would end up stigmatizing their daughter, who they said had come out of her shell when they began to allow her to live as a girl, instead of a boy.Philadelphia schools hunger strike continuesPHILADELPHIA A hunger strike to protest massive layoffs in the Philadelphia school district is in its eighth day.

Investigating commander of Nazi-led unitBERLIN German prosecutors said Monday that they opened a formal preliminary investigation of a Minnesota man who was a commander of a Nazi-led unit during World War II, to determine whether there is enough evidence to bring charges and seek his extradition. The Associated Press found that 94-year-old Michael Karkoc entered the U.S. in 1949 by lying to American authorities about his role in the SS-led Ukrainian Self Defense Legion, which is accused of torching villages and killing civilians in Poland. APs evidence indicates Karkoc was in the area of the massacres, although no records link him directly to atrocities. Kurt Schrimm, the head of the special German prosecutors office responsible for investigating Nazi-era crimes, said prosecutors have opened a preliminary investigation procedure to examine the matter (and) seek documentation.Berlusconi convicted in sex-for-hire trialMILAN A Milan court on Monday convicted former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi of paying for sex with an underage prostitute during infamous bunga bunga parties at his villa and then using his influence to try to cover it up. Berlusconi, 76, was sentenced to seven years in prison and barred from public office for life a sentence that could mean the end of his two-decade political career. However, there are two more levels of appeal before the sentence would become final, a process that can take months. Berlusconi holds no official post in the current Italian government, but remains influential in the uneasy crossparty coalition that emerged after inconclusive February elections.Canadian ferry officer sentenced in deadly crashVANCOUVER, British Columbia A judge sentenced a navigating officer to four years in prison Monday for the deadly crash of passenger ferry off Canadas Pacific coast, saying the officer was distracted on the bridge by his former lover.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Decision divides Supreme Court Associated PressWASHINGTON A sharply divided Supreme Court on Monday decided to make it harder for Americans to sue businesses for retaliation and discrimination, leading a justice to call for Congress to overturn the courts actions. The courts conservatives, in two 5-4 decisions, ruled that a person must be able to hire and fire someone to be considered a supervisor in discrimination lawsuits, making it harder to blame a business for a co-workers racism or sexism. The court then decided to limit how juries can decide retaliation lawsuits, saying victims must prove employers would not have taken action against them but for their intention to retaliate. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote both dissents for the courts liberal wing, and in a rare move, read them aloud in the courtroom. She said the high court had corralled Title VII, a law designed to stop discrimination in the nations workplaces. Both decisions dilute the strength of Title VII in ways Congress could not have intended, said Ginsburg, who then called on Congress to change the law to overturn the court. In other actions, the court: Sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court for another look. The courts 7-1 decision leaves unsettled many of the basic questions about the continued use of race as a factor in college admissions. Announced that it would issue additional opinions on Tuesday as it begins to wrap up its work for the summer. Justices still have not decided major cases involving gay marriage and the Voting Rights Act.

Associated PressLebanese army soldiers help an injured soldier Monday after clashes between followers of a radical Sunni cleric Sheik Ahmad al-Assir and Shiite gunmen, in the southern port city of Sidon, Lebanon. Clashes present test for Lebanons weak military Associated PressBEIRUT Lebanons thirdlargest city of Sidon was turned into a battle zone Monday as the military fought heavily armed followers of an extremist Sunni Muslim cleric holed up in a mosque. Residents of the southern port fled machine-gun fire and grenade explosions that shook the coastal area in one of the deadliest rounds of violence, seen as a test of the weak governments ability to contain the furies unleashed by the civil war in neighboring Syria. Official reports said at least 16 soldiers were killed and 50 were wounded in two days of clashes with armed followers of Ahmad alAssir, a maverick Sunni sheik whose rapid rise is a sign of the deep frustration among many Lebanese who resent the ascendancy of Shiites to power, led by the militant group Hezbollah. More than 20 of al-Assirs supporters were killed, according to a security official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnt authorized to talk to reporters. The fierce battle that al-Assirs fighters were putting up showed how aggressive Sunni extremists have grown in Lebanon, building on anger not only at Syrias regime but also its allies in Hezbollah. Sidon is a war zone, said Nabil Azzam, a resident who returned briefly Monday to check on his home after having fled with his family a day earlier. This is the result of all the sectarian rhetoric that has been building because of the war in Syria. It was bound to happen, he said by telephone, a conversation interrupted by a burst of gunfire. Machine-gun fire and explosions from rocket-propelled grenades caused panic among residents, who also reported power and water outages. Snipers allied with al-Assir took over rooftops, terrorizing civilians, and many were asking to be evacuated from the heavily populated neighborhood around the Bilal bin Rabbah Mosque, where al-Assir preaches and where the fighting has been concentrated. The military appealed to the gunmen to turn themselves in, vowing to continue its operations until security is totally restored. By evening, the army had stormed the mosque complex, though not the mosque itself. In addition to the more than 20 followers of the cleric who were killed, dozens of them were arrested, the security official said. There was no sign of al-Assir and it was unclear if he was in the mosque or had managed to escape. Moscow urged to expel Snowden Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. assumes National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden remains in Russia, and officials are working with Moscow in hopes he will be expelled and returned to America to face criminal charges, President Barack Obamas spokesman said Monday. He declared that a decision by Hong Kong not to detain Snowden has unquestionably hurt relations between the United States and China. Snowden left Hong Kong, where he has been in hiding, and flew to Moscow but then apparently did not board a plane bound for Cuba as had been expected. His whereabouts were a mystery. The founder of the WikiLeaks secret-spilling organization, Julian Assange, said he wouldnt go into details about where Snowden was but said he was safe. Snowden has applied for asylum in Ecuador, Iceland and possibly other countries, Assange said. Obama, asked if he was confident that Russia would expel Snowden, told reporters: What we know is that were following all the appropriate legal channels and working with various other countries to make sure that the rule of law is observed. Obamas spokesman, Jay Carney, earlier Monday said the U.S. was expecting the Russians to look at the options available to them to expel Mr. Snowden back to the United States to face justice for the crimes with which he is charged. The Chinese have emphasized the importance of building mutual trust, Carney added. And we think that they have dealt that effort a serious setback. If we cannot count on them to honor their legal extradition obligations, then there is a problem. And that is a point we are making to them very directly. Snowden has given highly classified documents to The GuardianandThe Washington Postnewspapers disclosing U.S. surveillance programs that collect vast amounts of phone records and online data in the name of foreign intelligence, often sweeping up information on American citizens. He also told the South China Morning Postthat the NSA does all kinds of things like hack Chinese cellphone companies to steal all of your SMS data. Snowden arrived in Moscow on Sunday, but his whereabouts were thrown into question Monday when a plane took off from Moscow for Cuba with an empty seat booked in his name. The U.S. has revoked his passport. Edward Snowden

Three straight victories to clinch the title. From beginning to end, the Chicago Blackhawks skated away from the rest of the league. Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart in the 1:16 and the Blackhawks staged a stunning rally to win Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final 3-2 on Monday night for their second NHL championship in four seasons.

Nadal falls to 135th-ranked Darcis at Wimbledon Associated PressLONDON For the second straight year, Rafael Nadal is leaving Wimbledon early after a stunning loss to a little-known player ranked in the hundreds. In one of the tournaments greatest upsets, an ailing Nadal was knocked out in straight sets Monday by 135th-ranked Steve Darcis of Belgium the Spaniards first loss in the opening round of any Grand Slam event. The free-swinging Darcis defeated the two-time champion 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8), 6-4 on Court 1, ending Nadals 22-match winning streak and eliminating one of the Big Four of mens tennis on the very first day of the grass-court Grand Slam. After serving an ace down the middle on match point, Darcis conceded he was as surprised as everyone. Nobody was expecting me to win, he said. So I had to play a good match, relax, and enjoy the game. Thats what I did. There were no surprises for the other big names: Defending champion Roger Federer, bidding for a record eighth Wimbledon title, and second-seeded Andy Murray both won in straight sets on Centre Court. Nadal was sidelined for seven months with a left knee injury after losing in the second round of Wimbledon last year. He seemed to be struggling physically Monday. He was unable to turn on the speed or use his legs to spring into his groundstrokes, limping and failing to run for some shots. Nadal declined to blame any injury and gave full credit to the 29-year-old Darcis, who had never beaten a top-5 player before and has yet to go beyond the third round of any Grand Slam. I dont ... talk about my knee this afternoon, Nadal said. Only thing that can say today is congratulate Steve Darcis. He played a fantastic match. Everything that I will say today about my knee is an excuse, and I dont like to put any excuse when Im losing a match like I lost today. Darcis, who had won only one previous match at Wimbledon, played the match of his life Monday, going for his shots and moving Nadal from corner to corner. Darcis amassed a total of 53 winners, compared with 32 for Nadal. Of course, Rafa didnt play his best tennis, Darcis said. I could see it. So I took advantage of it, tried to fight. Maybe he was not in the best shape ever. Maybe he didnt play his best match.

Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS An NCAA panel voted Monday to expand the use of replay review in college basketball, and instituted the 10-second backcourt rule for the womens game. The Playing Rules Oversight Panel also approved a tweak to the charging-blocking foul in the mens game and gave referees leeway when it comes to penalties for accidentally elbowing an opponent above the shoulders. The approved changes from the panels conference call are effective immediately. Under the replay change, officials can use video review to confirm a shot-clock violation or determine who caused the ball to go out of bounds on a deflection involving two or more players in the final two minutes of regulation or overtime. Changes also were made for reviewing 3-pointers. For the first 36 minutes of play, officials must wait until the next media timeout to review whether a shot was a 3-point field goal. In the last four minutes of the game and the entire overtime, officials will go to the monitor immediately to determine whether a field goal was a 3. Officials also can use the monitor to determine which player committed a foul. Previously, they were only allowed to use the monitor to determine the free-throw shooter. The womens game will be played with a 10-second rule next season, meaning the team with possession must advance the ball past midcourt within 10 seconds or its a turnover. Before the change was approved, teams could use as much of the 30-second shot clock as they wanted to move the ball past half-court. The change to the chargingblocking foul and a list of points of emphasis for officials is designed to spark an offensive bump for the mens game. The defender is no longer able to slide into the offensive players path to the basket at the last moment and draw a charge. When it comes to an elbow above the shoulders, referees will be allowed to use a video monitor to determine the severity of the blow.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Jeremy Hellickson allowed one hit in seven shutout innings and rookie Wil Myers homered in his home debut, helping the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Blue Jays 4-1 on Monday night to end Torontos 11-game winning streak. Myers hit the second of three straight Tampa Bay homers in the second, connecting in his first at-bat at Tropicana Field. He received a standing ovation from a crowd of 11,407 getting its initial close-up view of the key acquisition in the offseason trade that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City for the power-hitting right fielder and other prospects. Myers drive to center off Esmil Rogers (3-3) was sandwiched between home runs by James Loney and Sam Fuld as Tampa Bay went deep three times within a span of eight pitches. Luke Scott added a bloop RBI double to make it 4-0 in the third, and that was all the support Hellickson needed. A night after scoring a seasonhigh 13 runs at home to complete a three-game sweep of Baltimore, the Blue Jays were limited to four singles and five walks. They came up short in their bid to extend the longest winning streak in the majors since Detroit won 12 straight in 2011. Hellickson (6-3) gave up J.P. Arencibias single, walked four and struck out four. He allowed only one runner past first base in the second inning, when Colby Rasmus walked and moved to third when Arencibia followed with his hit to center field. Toronto finally broke through in the eighth when it loaded the bases with one out against Alex Torres with a pair of singles and a walk. Jose Bautista grounded into a force play to drive in a run before Edwin Encarnacion flied out to end the threat. Fernando Rodney worked the ninth for the Rays, earning his 16th save in 21 opportunities. Loney, Myers and Fuld went deep off Rogers with one out in the second, just the second time in franchise history first at Tropicana Field that Tampa Bay has hit three straight homers. Evan Longoria, Willy Aybar and Dioner Navarro did it on June 9, 2008, against the Angels.American League Indians 5, Orioles 2BALTIMORE Michael Brantley homered and had four RBIs, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 for their ninth win in 12 games. Brantley put the Indians ahead with a two-run single in the sixth inning and made it 5-2 with a two-run shot in the eighth off Darren ODay. His four RBIs tied a career high, reached twice previously. Ubaldo Jimenez (6-4) allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings and Vinnie Pestano, the fourth Indians reliever, worked the ninth for his fourth save.

George Brett likes to say that hitting was always easier for him to do than say. After all, he was one of the best of his generation of any generation, really. His pursuit of the nearmythical .400 mark during his MVP season of 1980 came up just 10 points short, and to this day remains one of the most spirited cracks at it since Ted Williams reached it in 1941. But for Brett, stepping into the batters box, peering back at a pitcher and then putting the right swing on the ball came naturally. He worked his tail off, of course, but when someone would ask him to explain his sweet swing, he would usually just shrug. It was easier to do than say. Well, now hes getting paid to say rather than do. Hes three weeks into a monthlong experiment as the Kansas City Royals hitting coach, and just like Williams and scores of other greats who have tried to become coaches, Brett is finding results maddeningly slow to show. Ive seen results in batting practice. I want to see them in games, Brett said in an interview with The Associated Press. Ive seen some guys alter their swings a bit, their stances a little bit, and theyve had a little success, which is good. Some guys are working on it and it looks good in BP but it hasnt carried over to a game yet. When it carries over to a game, he added, well be OK. The question that will soon face Brett is whether hell be around to witness it. The Hall of Fame third baseman turned down numerous opportunities to coach over the years, mostly because he didnt want to deal with the daily grind. But he also didnt know whether hed be any good at it, a hard admission for someone who has always excelled in baseball. So even when the Royals reassigned hitting coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David and came calling once more, Brett accepted the interim job with reservations. He told manager Ned Yost and general manager Dayton Moore he would give it a month and see how things were working out. That month is quickly approaching an end and the results so far at least in black-andwhite terms have been modest at best and a humbling disappointment at worst. The Royals were hitting .261 when Brett put on the old No. 5. They were averaging four runs a game, and ranked near the bottom of the American League in just about every statistical category. Since he took over, the team is batting just .247 and scoring about 3.7 runs per game. Their walk rate has improved ever-so slightly, but their power numbers have declined. Theyre hitting fewer home runs and extra-base hits, which is hard to imagine given the lack of power they were already demonstrating during the early part of the season. As an offensive group, we havent come together as a team, Yost acknowledged. Were still trying to take on too much responsibility individually instead of just doing whatever it takes. But that old adage that numbers never lie? Well, Yost believe they can. In just about every relative statistic, the Royals have regressed under Brett, but there are plenty of reasons to explain it. It takes time for changes to take hold. Subtle tweaks to a swing and, more important, a mindset can sometimes take months to reflect in the numbers. In some cases, players have simply reverted to their expected mean. Alex Gordon was hitting .340 when Brett came aboard but is just .152 since, putting his season average of .288 closer to what hed be expected to bat. Lorenzo Cains average has slid from .282 to .262, more in line with what he hit last season. But in players that Brett has worked most closely with, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas among them, theres been profound improvement. Hosmers average has climbed from .262 to .275, and he is starting to pull the ball more. Moustakas has nudged his average over .200 after hitting .187 prior to Bretts arrival, often crediting his new batting coach with the improvement. Exactly what has Moustakas been told? Our little secret, he said.

Royals Brett still finding his groove as a coach
CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The injury renewed debate about what can be done to protect pitchers from batted balls. Even after J.A. Happ went through this, we were asked pretty heavily about this topic. I came right out and thought there should be something for us to have the option to do, Cobb said. I dont want it to turn into something where every pitcher on the mound has to wear something. Thats everybodys personal choice, Cobb added. Its one where you want to have a little say-so that if this incident happened again you were able to do everything you could to protect yourself, your future, your family. Cobb, who remained conscious the whole time, said he has experienced nausea, severe headaches that have begun to subside, as well as symptoms of vertigo. Still, he is beginning to feel better each day. Im having my days, the 25-yearold Cobb said. Today has been the best day by far. Cobb said he visited the doctor Monday and was told he is healing quicker than expected. There is still no timetable for him to return to the mound. Thats something you just have to let play out, Rays manager Joe Maddon said before Tampa Bay opened a three-game series against the Blue Jays, who are still without Happ. I dont like to apply finish lines to items that I really have no clue (about). I dont think anybody does, Maddon said. Even if you talk to doctors, Im sure theyre not sure how long its going to take. ... So just let it play out. Hell let us know when hes ready for that next moment, and well take it from there. After initially being reluctant to watch a replay of the line drive, Cobb said he watched it later that night or the following morning. He said he initially thought the injury wasnt that serious, and wanted to get up and walk off the field. It wasnt until after the ambulance ride to the hospital, where he later overheard a nurse talking about, how she couldnt believe this is happening again within a month that he began to think about Happ. When it happened I didnt think it was too big of a deal. ... It didnt sink in for a while, Cobb said. Once I got the CATSCAN going and they told me there was no bleeding inside the brain, from there I was kind of at ease with the whole situation. There has been speculation that Cobb, who is 6-2 with a 3.01 ERA in 13 starts this year, might not pitch again this season. He said that isnt true. Ill be ready to go as soon as my body tells me Im 100 percent, he said. But mentally, theres no doubt in my mind Ill be fine. Its just another challenge. He conceded, though, that it is difficult to imagine what it will be like when he does finally get back on a mound and faces hitters. I dont think thats something you can say until you actually go through it, Cobb said. Id love to sit up here and tell you no, that once I get out there Ill have the mindset that it happened once, its probably a pretty good chance its not going to happen to me again. But Im not going to lie. Ive had some nightmares about how bad it could have been. Its obviously in the back of my mind, but Id like to think I could pitch through it. Toews and Boston alternate captain Patrice Bergeron returned to the lineup after leaving the Blackhawks 3-1 win with injuries on Saturday. Toews scored when he got past Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara along the boards in the neutral zone. Chicagos captain skated up the right side and fired a hard shot from the right faceoff dot that beat goalie Tuukka Rask between his pads. It was Toews second goal in three games. Of Chicagos last 10 goals, Chara was on the ice for nine. Boston right wing Jaromir Jagr was shaken up in the first period. He returned for the second but left the bench, and Tyler Seguin replaced him on the second line with left wing Brad Marchand and center Bergeron. The play that led to Kellys goal began after a faceoff that rookie defenseman Torey Krug rushed in to tip toward a teammate. The puck went to Daniel Paille, standing about 40 feet on the left. He passed to Seguin, who caught the puck with his right glove in the slot and dropped it. Seguin then passed to Kelly, who scored his second goal of the playoffs 7:19 into the game. It came just seven seconds after a whistle stopped a scrum in front of the net that followed an extended period of pressure by the Bruins. Just two minutes after the goal, Chicago had one of its best chances of the period when Michal Frolik skated in with the puck behind the defense and fired a 15-foot drive from the left, but Rask made the save. Boston had another solid chance at 12:24 when Milan Lucic took a 15-foot shot from the slot that Crawford stopped. After having no power plays in Game 5, the Bruins had four failed advantages in the first two periods. With 4:01 left in the first, Shaw was struck in the face by a puck when it deflected off the shaft of his stick after Bostons Shawn Thornton shot it. He lay on the ice before getting up and skating off slowly. Toews was on Chicagos first shift of the game. Bergeron had left Game 5 with an undisclosed injury after playing just 49 seconds in the second period. Five of the last nine Cup finals have gone seven games, including in 2011 when the Bruins overcame a 3-2 series deficit and won their first championship since 1972 by winning Game 6 in Boston and Game 7 in Vancouver. In 2010, Chicago won its first NHL title since 1961 on Patrick Kanes overtime goal in Game 6 against the Philadelphia Flyers. As they did this year, the Blackhawks won Game 5 to take a 3-2 series lead. This years finals were extremely tight, with three of the first five games going to overtime. Chicago won the opener in three overtimes, then Boston won 2-1 in one extra period and 2-0. The Blackhawks regained home-ice advantage with a 6-5 overtime win in a wild Game 4 in Boston before returning home for Saturday nights win.

Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was questioned Monday about his weekend fight with an autograph-seeker that left the man hospitalized with a head injury. Pippen came in voluntarily to a Los Angeles County sheriffs substation after he was named as a suspect in the altercation outside Nobu restaurant, a celebrity hangout on the beach in Malibu. He spoke to police for about an hour and was released pending further investigation. Hes being cooperative, sheriffs spokesman Steve Whitmore said. The unidentified victim was inside the restaurant taking photos as Pippen dined with his family Sunday evening, sheriffs Capt. Patrick Davoren said. When Pippen went outside to the parking lot, the man continued taking pictures and sought the Hall of Famers autograph, Davoren said. An argument ensued that led to the violence, investigators said. The man was taken to a hospital with a head injury and was treated and released. Investigators were interviewing several witnesses to determine whether Pippen should be charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm. The 47-year-old Pippen won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Bulls and in 1996 was named one of the NBAs 50 greatest players. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.Russia to send Olympic torch into spaceSOCHI, Russia The Olympic torch has gone underwater at the Great Barrier Reef, flown on the Concorde and traveled on the back of a camel. Now Russia is taking the torch to new heights space. As part of a four-month torch relay ahead of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, the torch will make its first trip into space using a Soyuz TMA-11M manned spaceship provided by the Russian Federal Space Agency, organizers said Monday. Russian cosmonauts Sergei Ryazansky and Oleg Kotov will take the Olympic torch on a spacewalk. Nobody has done this before, said Dmitry Chernyshenko, head of Sochis organizing committee. The spacewalk by two Russian cosmonauts with the Sochi 2014 Olympic torch will be an historic moment in the history of the Olympic torch relay. The torch will be unlit for safety reasons during its visit to space in November.Kelly says no chemo, radiation necessaryBUFFALO, N.Y. Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly said he has been told by doctors that he wont need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatment after having surgery to remove cancerous cells in his jaw. The former Buffalo Bills star made the announcement at his football camp in Buffalo on Monday and his comments were posted on the Bills website. Kelly said he found out the news on Wednesday. He said he had the left side of his jaw and the teeth on that side of his mouth removed in surgery on June 7. He was released from the hospital three days later. He said hes scheduled for a follow-up with doctors in two months to see if the cancer stays away.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS
B4TUESDAY, JUNE25, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS proud of me, I think. Darcis said he didnt know whether Nadal was injured, or was just troubled by the grass conditions. Not the day to talk about these kind of things, Nadal said. I am confident that I will have a good recovery and be ready for the next tournaments. Darcis finished the match in style, serving his 13th ace as Nadal failed to chase the ball. Darcis is the lowest ranked player to beat Nadal at any tournament since Joachim Johansson ranked No. 690 defeated the Spaniard in 2006 in Stockholm. Gustavo Kuerten, in 1997, was the last reigning French Open champion to lose in the first round at Wimbledon. Nadal was coming off his eighth championship at the French Open this month. But on this day he never looked like the player who has won 12 Grand Slam titles and established himself as one of the greatest players of his generation. Last year, Nadal was ousted in the second round by 100th-ranked Lukas Rosol, a match that finished under the closed roof of Centre Court. After that loss, Nadal took the rest of the year off to recover from the knee problem, missing the U.S. Open and Australian Open. Since returning to action this year, he had made it to the finals of all nine tournaments he entered, winning seven. After winning the French Open, Nadal pulled out of a grass-court tuneup in Halle, Germany. He came to Wimbledon without any serious grass-court preparation. The opponent played well, Nadal said. I had my chances. I didnt make it. So in grass (its) difficult to adapt yourself, to adapt your game. When you dont have the chance to play before, I didnt have that chance this year, is tougher. I didnt find my rhythm. Ten years after his first Wimbledon championship, Federer opened play on Centre Court as defending champion and looked right as home as he dismantled Victor Hanescu of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-0. This was a grass-court clinic lasting 68 minutes. Federer had 32 winners, seven aces and just six unforced errors. He won 90 percent of the points when he put his first serve in. When his serve is clicking, Federer usually is unbeatable. On this day, he won his first 15 service points and 24 out of the first 25. Im happy to get out of there early and quickly, Federer said. So it was a perfect day. Last year, Federer equaled Pete Sampras and William Renshaw with seven Wimbledon titles. He is now contending to become the first man to win the tournament eight times, which would bring his total of Grand Slam titles to 18. Federer came out wearing a white collared jacket with orange trim, then quickly got down to business. He never faced a break point and broke six times. Federer has a habit of making things look easy. And so it was in the opening game when, stranded at the net, he reached behind him for a reflex forehand volley that landed in for a winner. In the third set, Federer lifted a perfect backhand lob over the 6-foot-6 Hanescu for a break and a 5-0 lead. Another Wimbledon champion, 2002 winner Lleyton Hewitt, displayed his grasscourt prowess by upending 11th-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. In a match that finished in fading light on Court 1, the 32-year-old Australian fell to his knees at the baseline, then jumped and pumped his fist as if he had just won the tournament. Playing his 15th consecutive Wimbledon and his 57th Grand Slam overall, Hewitt has bounced back from various injuries and reached the semifinals at Queens Club to serve notice he is still dangerous. I know that I can still play the game, he said. I compete against the best guys. I play well in the big tournaments. Thats why Im still playing. Murray, the U.S. Open champion who again tries to become the first British man to win the trophy since Fred Perry in 1936, got off to a strong start with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 win over Benjamin Becker of Germany. It was a tough start for me. He is a very good grass player, Murray said. I was ready and to win in three sets was a good start. Theres always nerves at the start of a Grand Slam and Im glad to get it out of the way and hopefully I can improve as it goes on. It was Murrays first match on Centre Court since he beat Federer on the grass for the gold medal at last years London Olympics a month after losing to Federer in the Wimbledon final. The two could meet in the semifinals this year. The weather was mostly cloudy but dry for the beginning of the two-week championships. Among those in the Royal Box were former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Prince Williams wife, Kate. In womens play, there was an early upset as fifth-seeded Sara Errani was eliminated by Puerto Rican teenager Monica Puig 6-3, 6-2. Puig slugged 38 winners in overwhelming Errani in the first match on Court 18. The 19-year-old Puig, playing her first grass-court tournament as a pro, completely outplayed the Italian veteran with her hard-hitting baseline game. Puig said she has been building on a recent run of success, including a thirdround showing at the French Open. Definitely pulling off some big career wins and not being afraid to close out matches, which was my problem at the beginning of the year, she said. Finally just having the confidence to close them out. In other womens matches, secondseeded Victoria Azarenka overcame a right knee injury from a scary fall beating Maria Joao Koehler of Portugal 6-1, 6-2. Azarenka screamed in pain after slipping and falling at the baseline in the second game of the second set. She sobbed on court and received medical treatment. Playing the rest of the match with a heavy wrap on her right knee, Azarenka limped noticeably but managed to win comfortably against an opponent making her Wimbledon debut. I was in such pain at the beginning, it wouldnt let go, Azarenka said. I think it calmed down. Third-seeded Maria Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion, came through a first-set tiebreaker and beat 37th-ranked Kristina Mladenovic of France 7-6 (5), 6-3. Other womens winners Monday included No. 9 Caroline Wozniacki, No. 12 Ana Ivanovic and No. 16 Jelena Jankovic. Advancing among the men were No. 6 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, No. 10 Marin Cilic, No. 15 Nicolas Almagro and No. 18 John Isner. Janko Tiparevic, seeded No. 14, lost to fellow Serb Viktor Troicki, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (5). WIMBLEDONContinued from Page B1 Associated PressLleyton Hewitt reacts Monday as he beats Stanislas Wawrinka during their mens first round singles match in Wimbledon, London. Associated PressFrances Dimitri Foulquier, left, and the United States Mario Rodriguez challenge for the ball Monday during an Under-20 World Cup Group A soccer match in Istanbul, Turkey. The teams tied 1-1. Associated PressISTANBUL The United States improved its chances of reaching the knockout stage of the Under-20 World Cup, tying France 1-1 Monday on an 85thminute goal by substitute Daniel Cuevas. I feel like they were confused, Cuevas said. They couldnt get the ball out and luckily it took a bounce my way and I got to push it in. With France and Spain having won their openers, the U.S. needs a victory in its final match against Ghana to advance outright. But it could still advance as one of the four best third-place teams. Our team is very united and we are always together and pushing forward, Cuevas said. If things dont go our way, we keep trying and keep trying until they do. Luckily we got the tie. Spain beat Ghana 1-0 in a lackluster match on Monday. In the other early game in Group B, Nigeria defeated Cuba 3-0, with Aminu Umar scoring twice in four minutes. France appeared set to beat the Americans win and advance after Yaya Sanogo scored his second goal of the tournament. His penalty in the 48th minute came after Dimitri Foulquier was sideswiped by Americas Javan Torre in the penalty area. I dont think we had a great control of the game tonight, France coach Pierre Mankowski said. It feels a bit strange because the U.S. team was hardly dangerous. But they had situations they should have never had. We conceded a penalty and a free-kick, which led to their goal. The U.S., which lost its opening match to Spain, had few chances and missed those it did have the worst when Luis Gils penalty was easily saved in the 65th. But the Americans grew more confident toward the end and it paid off when Cuevas pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area. Our team is very united and we are always together and pushing forward, Cuevas said. If things dont go our way, we keep trying and keep trying until they do. Luckily we got the tie. U.S. coach Tab Ramos was a little disappointed with the lackluster play early on but happy to come away with a draw. In a game like today we should have gotten all three points, he said. At the end of the day, it was great courage, effort by our team. US ties France 1-1 in Under-20 World Cup Heat celebrate title Associated PressMIAMI The last piece of confetti had landed, the Miami Heat championship celebration was officially over and many in the crowd of revelers were starting to make their way to the exits. Players and coaches remained on the stage. They were in no hurry to leave. Every member of the NBA champions stood and watched a giant video board play highlights of Miamis march through the playoffs, from LeBron James MVP-caliber plays on both ends to Ray Allens season-saving 3-pointer in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and countless moments in between. Its a special group, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. You know what? This season started over nine months ago with that trip to China and we were able to experience so many cool things together in the regular season. But at times, it just seems to be going by so fast. So maybe thats why the Heat arent ready to stop celebrating this title just yet. With an estimated 400,000 people lining the downtown Miami streets, the Heat held their parade and an in-arena rally afterward Monday. James stood atop a double-decker bus with a cigar in his mouth for the parade. Shane Battier blew kisses to the crowd, Dwyane Wade raised three fingers aloft and Chris Andersen flapped his arms in a nod to his Birdman moniker. Its the ultimate, James told Sun Sports, the Heat broadcast partner. Its the ultimate. This is what I came down here, to be able to have a parade at the end of the year. Im extremely blessed, man. It doesnt get any better than this. Several players held super-soaker squirt guns and sprayed water on fans, confetti dotted the streets, and horns honked from all directions. Heat managing general partner Micky Arison and team president Pat Riley stood in the front of one bus, while Spoelstra his championship cap turned backward waved and clapped at fans. Miami parties better than any city in the world, Spoelstra said. But it took nine months, nine months of incredible sacrifice, not only by these men right here but everybody in our organization, grinding it out every single day, ups and downs, highs and lows. And to have a culmination like Game 7 in front of all of you here is incredible. Wade said that without the fans, Miami wouldnt have found a way to win the title. Its humbling. Its very humbling to be here, Wade said, gazing out at the enormous crowd. I envision a lot of things. I cant say I envisioned this. This parade down Biscayne Boulevard was once a vision by Coach Riley and now weve taken this ride three times. Its special. When Riley got hired by the Heat, he talked at his introductory news conference about his vision of a parade down Biscayne Boulevard. It took Riley until 2006 to deliver on that hope, but now with three parades in eight seasons, the Heat are getting used to these celebrations. Their names are going to be respected and honored, Riley said. And thats all we have. All we have is the name on the front of the shirt, which is the Heat, and the name on the back of the shirt. And thats why we play. Miami became the sixth franchise in NBA history to win consecutive championships, after topping the San Antonio Spurs in this years finals for the third title overall for the Heat franchise, needing a Game 7 to get it done. Wade and Udonis Haslem a Miami native who said this is what its all about are the only players to be part of all three titles, and Wade insisted Monday that the city is going to be his home now for good. This is my home. Theyve treated me well since day one, Wade said. Ill be here for probably the rest of my life in this amazing city. I thank the Miamians for accepting me as one of their own.

It is not uncommon for people to think that it is just a skin cancer, do not worry. In their opinion, all skin cancers are curable and so why worry. This is not true. Most skin cancers are basal cell, squamous cell or melanoma. The first two are curable with surgery in all but advanced cases. That is not true for melanoma. Melanoma has a high risk of spreading to distant organs and if it spreads, it becomes incurable. Until now, there were very few advances in melanoma not anymore. Two new drugs were approved in the latter part of May this year. At the ASCO conference, another advance was posted: Adding a growth factor to the immune-stimulating drug ipilimumab significantly improved overall survival in patients with metastatic melanoma. GM-CSF is often given to stimulate or prime the immune system in patients who are undergoing chemotherapy. Ipilimumab removes the brakes on the immune systems attack on melanoma. The study consisted of 245 patients with metastatic melanoma. They were randomized to receive either ipilimumab alone or in combination of GM-CSF. The median overall survival for the combination treatment was 17.5 months versus 12.7 months for ipilimumab alone. This was statistically significant. Patients treated with the combination were 36 percent less likely to die than those treated with ipilimumab alone. The beauty was that combination treatment had fewer side effects and still it improved survival. Thus, this was the best of both worlds. Both these drugs are FDA approved and are available for use in the USA. Another study in melanoma, an investigational immune therapy was safe and well tolerated in patients with advanced melanoma. The drug called lambrolizumab had a 38 percent response rate and several patients saw their tumors disappear. This drug looks very promising. The drug, which is aimed at reviving the immune response to cancer, also appeared to yield long-lasting responses. The drug is the second entry in a class that is attracting increasing interest. It blocks a pathway in immune checkpoint. This renders tumor cells immune to the attack of bodys own immune mechanism. In short, a few years ago, we had no good drug in the treatment of melanoma. Today, at least four drugs have been approved and many more are in HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE So you know: T he information contained in the Health & Life section is not intended to cover all possible directions, precautions, warnings, drug interactions, allergic reactions, or adverse effects and is not intended to replace consultation with a physician.

You put your makeup on then walk outside in the summer heat and humidity and it all melts off. Whats a girl to do? Here are some tips to keep your summer face on and looking good, even on the hottest days of summer.NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerThis is the best thing Ive found for oily skin, especially living in Florida, said Crystal Price, esthetician at Suncoast Dermatology in Lecanto. The papers contain tinted mineral powder, so as you blot the oil from your face, youre applying or replacing a thin layer of foundation. Just as the name implies, tinted moisturizers are lotions or creams that contain pigment that evens out your skin tone. Make your own by combining a bit of liquid foundation with a few drops of your favorite moisturizer for sheer coverage. BB stands for beauty balm or blemish balm and, depending on the brand and formula, is a combination of moisturizer, sun screen, primer and foundation, as well as anti-aging, anti-acne and skin-brightening properties. It comes out of the tube as a white cream and adjusts to your skin color. Wear it as foundation. Good quality mineral makeup stays on your face until you take it off. However, it can look heavy during the summer when you want your face to appear more natural. One trick to create a more sheer foundation is to mix mineral foundation with a colorless mineral finishing powder (two-thirds foundation to one-third finishing powder). Wear an eye moisturizer and apply it twice a day, Price said. I also recommend every woman wear eye concealer, under the eyes and even Rice papers Tinted moisturizers Mineral makeup Eye care BB cream See FACE/ Page C3 See GANDHI/ Page C3Cigarette smoke is linked to diabetesOver the years, I have discussed the dangers associated with smoking, not only to the smoker, but to those around you who inhale secondhand smoke. And in many cases, to the unborn child of many women that I see who continue to smoke during pregnancy. Now, aside from the cancer risk, there is new scientific information linking second hand smoke to a higher risk of developing diabetes. Secondhand smoke exposure, in childhood or adulthood, is associated with an increased rate of type 2 diabetes in women, according to a study recently published in Diabetes Care. Researchers from the National Institute of Public Health in Mexico City analyzed data from 37,343 French women participating in a European study who had never smoked and were free of Type 2 diabetes, cancer or cardiovascular disease at the initiation of this study in 1992. The correlation between childhood and adult secondhand smoke exposure and type 2 diabetes was then assessed in this large population of women with a very long followup of the study participants. From 1992 to 2007, the researchers identified and validated 795 cases of women developing type 2 diabetes. Compared with women with See BENNETT/ Page C3
STEPHENSINGER Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. For jet engine maker Pratt & Whitney, a longsimmering dispute over worker illnesses was settled by a massive 11-year study that found no elevated risk of brain cancer at its plants. But for dead workers relatives who first raised concerns years ago, the matter is far from closed. Their next step hasnt been decided, and the choices are limited. Matt Shafner, a New London lawyer who represents families, said more than 90 workers compensation claims have been filed. But he wont move forward until an independent review of the study is completed, he said. Its not over, said Carol Shea, whose husband, John Shea, worked at Pratt & Whitneys North Haven plant for 35 years and died of brain cancer in 2000 at age 56. Some relatives of workers who died of brain cancer a decade or more ago are dissatisfied with the study, saying it failed to prove that the deaths of their loved ones were part of a broader problem. Todd Atcherson, whose father, Charles Atcherson, died in 1998 after working at Pratt & Whitney for about 25 years, said the enormous scope of the study health and work records of more than 200,000 employees were reviewed fail to explain the deaths of his father and a small group of other workers at the North Haven plant. They skewed out the numbers so far, they lost focus of five people who worked in the same site and all died, he said. Shea said she believes the researchers are way off. I couldnt believe they couldnt come up with anything, she said. The study, released last month, was launched in response to the perception of an unusual occurrence of glioblastoma, a common and aggressive malignant brain tumor, at the North Haven plant. It found the incidence rates of glioblastoma at the site werent related to workplace exposures. The environment at the plant featured a blue haze, a product of aerosol generated from metalworking fluids during fast, hot grinding. The study, which examined seven other Pratt & Whitney plants in Connecticut, found no statistically significant elevations in the rate of cancer among workers. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and University of Illinois at Chicago said they identified 723 workers diagnosed with tumors between 1976 and 2004 at the subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. The tumors were malignant, benign or unspecified and included 277 cases of brain cancer. Of those, 167 were at Pratt & Whitneys East Hartford site and 57 at North Haven, though North Haven workers were at greater risk of having brain cancer, the study said. But following a study of the North Haven plant, researchers said they couldnt conclude that the environment or exposures were related to the overall elevations in brain cancer. Gary Marsh, the University of Pittsburgh researcher who led the study, said that he understands family members frustrations but that the study is conclusive and definitive. Lets face it: Brain cancer is a terrible disease and anyone who suffers from it or had a loved one suffer from it wants to know why they got that disease, he said. We looked at everything conceivable as a possible cause of brain cancer. Ray Hernandez, a spokesman for Pratt & Whitney, said the company is satisfied with the studys conclusions and considers the matter closed. Since we are confident in the scientific rigor of this comprehensive study, we think it provides the best possible information about this issue, he said in an emailed statement. The study found no connection between brain cancer and the workplace and researchers found no patterns or trends of other causes of death suggestive of a workplace relationship, Hernandez said. In Connecticut, Pratt & Whitney over the years has shut down all but its Middletown and East Hartford plants. Manufacturing processes from decades ago have been transformed and havent recently raised safety issues. A few family members said they are wary of the study because it was commissioned by Pratt & Whitney at a cost of $12 million. The university researchers worked independently of Pratt & Whitney and the state Department of Public Health established an advisory group to review the progress, methods and other aspects of the study and address concerns about the studys independence. John DeLeone, a grinding machine operator at the North Haven plant from 1984 until it closed in 2002, said workers suspected that chemicals specific to that plant were lethal. He criticized the study, which was launched in 2002 in response to concerns about employee deaths at North Haven, for being overly broad rather than focusing on that plant. It seemed that only people who got sick were those who transferred from North Haven, he said. Marsh said the study adds to the body of knowledge of occupational health, used by researchers and relevant to other jet engine manufacturers, such as General Electric Co. and Rolls Royce, he said. We concluded there is no evidence of elevated health risks of this population. Thats a good thing to know, he said. But Debra Belancik, the Machinists unions safety and health representative, said the study doesnt bring any closure at all. All this work we did, all the high rates, all the funerals and wakes I went to, it kind of bothered me a little bit, she said.C2TUESDAY, JUNE25, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH & LIFE Now Accepting New Patients Inverness 3733 E Gulf to Lake Hwy 341-5520 Homomsassa 7991 S Suncoast Blvd 382-8282 Citrus Springs 10489 N Florida Ave. 489-2486 Alistair Co, MD Family Practice Maria Villacastin, ARNP Shiela Villacastin, ARNP Alexander Villacastin, ARNP Alex Villacastin, MD Catherine Sembrano-Navarro, MD Lawrence Stawkowski PA Same Day Appointments Available! 000FA6H We Practice Old Fashioned Medicine The Modern Way Half an hour to prepare for guests? Some tips Families skeptical of Pratt cancer study findings MELISSARAYWORTH Associated PressSummer is the season of inviting friends over for impromptu barbecues and lastminute, casual get-togethers. That means its also the season of cringing when you realize your house is in no condition to be seen by the guests who will be arriving any minute now. On summer evenings, my husband will invite people over after golf, says interior designer Mallory Mathison. Hell call and say, Well all be there in 30 minutes. Thats when she begins rushing around, quickly prepping their home for the soon-to-arrive guests. Whats the best way to use that half hour or so before the doorbell rings to get even the messiest home party-ready? Try breaking it down like this: 10 MINUTES OF CLEANING Most people dont mind clutter, says Evette Rios, a lifestyles blogger and a correspondent on ABCs The Chew. But they mind grime. So focus on wiping surfaces in your kitchen and bathrooms. Then grab an old sock or pair of pantyhose and use that to quickly dust surfaces in your living room and dining room. Save time by only cleaning the rooms guests will enter, suggests Donna Smallin, founder of unclutter.com. And dont feel obligated to give anyone a fullscale tour of your home. Got dishes in the sink? Theres no time to wash them, so Smallin suggests keeping an empty bin available for stashing dirty dishes under your sink. Or stash them in the oven, assuming you wont use it during the party. (Just be sure to pull them out and wash them the following morning.) Rios points out that having your dishwasher empty when the party is over will be helpful. But dont hesitate to fill it with dirty dishes if necessary. If you have carpets, a minute of quick vacuuming in major traffic areas can make a difference, Rios says, especially if you sprinkle on a bit of carpet deodorizer. 10 MINUTES HIDING CLUTTER Walk through all the rooms where guests will be and collect any clutter in an empty laundry basket, Smallin says. Stash the basket in a bedroom and close the door. If all that household clutter is collected in one place, it will be easier the next day to deal with it all and not lose track of anything. Once major clutter has been removed, Smallin says, go through the rooms and stack remaining items neatly. Magazines look much better in a neat stack, for example, than in a messy pile. Pay attention to your homes entryway, which makes a first impression, and to areas where guests will spend the most time. If you work on your homes clutter hot-spots in advance, improving the way you handle things like junk mail and other items that pile up, youll have less to deal with before a lastminute party, Smallin says. 10 MINUTES OF FINISHING TOUCHES Scenting your space is fast, easy and has a huge impact, says Rios. She suggests placing a drop of lemon-scented oil or vanilla extract on light bulbs, then turning them on. The warmth will spread the scent throughout your home. Mathison suggests lighting a few candles for their scent and flickering party atmosphere. Other ways to add a fresh scent: Rios likes to tuck scented fabric softener sheets (the kind made for use in a clothes dryer) underneath couch cushions or inside throw pillows. If you have a kitchen garbage disposal, she suggests dropping slices of lemon or lime into it and running it for just a moment. Mathison recommends gathering a few small potted plants together in a basket or filling a basket with cuttings from your garden. It makes an instant centerpiece for a dining table, whether it includes flowers or just fresh greenery. Then, scan your refrigerator and pantry for things to serve (if you havent already sent a family member to the store). Its fine to be preparing and putting out food and drinks after your guests have arrived, but its best to do the initial what am I going to serve? scrambling without an audience. Mathison always keeps a few blocks of cheese and some thinly sliced prosciutto on hand, as well as a dessert thats ready to serve. She also suggests keeping extra drinks (bottled water, soft drinks, and wine or beer) on hand, preferably chilling in a spare refrigerator in your basement or garage. Lastly, Mathison says, take 30 seconds to brush your hair, breathe deeply, and lighten your mood after rushing around cleaning and preparing. Guests will pick up on your stress, she says, so let it go before they arrive. ONCE GUESTS ARRIVE If entertaining outside is an option, usher guests outside quickly, Mathison says. Its much easier to de-clutter and clean up a patio or deck than to tidy up your whole house. Smallin suggests keeping a pretty basket filled all summer long with good-quality paper plates, plastic utensils and serving plates. When guests ask how they can help, ask them to carry the basket outside and set the table while you finish preparing food. Then, simply have fun. Life is messy, Smallin says. Just focus on the friendships and dont judge yourself. Your guests probably arent judging you. Associated PressSimple touches like a vase filled with a fresh cutting from your garden shown here can bring a party atmosphere to your deck or patio in minutes. And keeping chilled drinks on hand makes it even easier to welcome last-minute guests.
Ihad surgery to remove a cataract from my left eye this week. WOW! What a difference in my vision. Ive been developing cataracts in both eyes over the past ten years or so. Dr. Montgomery, my ophthalmologist, told me a few years ago that I would need surgery some day because they were getting more dense, but that there was no urgency about it. I asked when it would be needed, and he told me ld be the one to let him know when it was time. If theyre not bothering you, he said, we dont need to do surgery. The lens of the eye is a remarkable structure. Located towards the front of the eye, but behind the iris, It is shaped a bit like a tiny, clear, flexible football. It is totally transparent to let light through to the retina of the eye. The elasticity of the lens is important, allowing the lens to change its elliptical shape to a rounder, more globular shape to change its refractive power. This allows the eye to accommodate from far to near vision as needed. Over time, the lens loses some of its flexibility, so that by middle age it doesnt accommodate as well as before. Thats when many people need to start wearing glasses to help refract light through the eye properly. By then, the lens needs this refractory help to let light hit the retina at the best focal length. Another problem that often happens is that the lens begins to become cloudy, letting less light pass through to the retina. This cataract formation can begin at any age, but its most common as one gets older. Besides age, other risk factors for cataracts include diabetes, smoking, excess alcohol intake, high meat consumption, hypertension, and high exposure to ultraviolet light. The lens is a living part of the body, so its not surprising that lifestyle factors affect its health. Needing both hydration and nutrition, the lens is bathed and nourished by the aqueous humor a clear fluid constantly being replenished as it circulates inside the eyes. This is one way that the condition of the lens is correlated with ones overall health. During the past year I noticed increasing problems with my vision. Even with my glasses on, I needed bright light to read newspaper print, and smaller print was blurred. There also seemed to be a permanent haze in the atmosphere. For a time, I wondered if climate change might be responsible for this constant haze, but I finally realized that the problem was within me. I had reached the point of needing eye surgery. When Dr. Montgomery examined my eyes, he agreed. He scheduled me for cataract extractions and intra-ocular lens implants of both eyes. I had the left eye operation a few days ago, with the right eye to be done one week later. When he took the patch off my left eye the morning after surgery, the improved clarity of my vision amazed me. The atmospheric haze had gone away, colors were brighter, and everything looked really clear. As Im writing now in the week between surgeries, the difference in vision between the two eyes is dramatic. If I close my left eye to see the world through my right eye with its cataract, my world view is hazy, dull, and blurred. When I close my right eye, the view through my left eye and its new intra-ocular lens is bright and clear. If I look through both eyes, the clear view is what I see. What a beautiful world we live in and what a difference ones viewpoint makes.Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas. Visit his website, www.thepoweroflifestyle.com.

After also looking at the family history of diabetes and adjusting for that along with education, childhood secondhand smoke exposure, body mass index, and other potential variables such as diet and exercise, adult secondhand smoke exposure, which was defined as being either no exposure versus at least four hours per day of exposure to second hand smoke, researchers found that indeed the exposure to second hand smoke definitely correlated with a significantly higher rate of developing type 2 diabetes over ones lifetime. The beauty of this study is that it was a prospective one, enrolling participants early in life before exposure, and following them for a long time, not what we call a retrospective study where you contact people and ask them about their habits and exposures over the past 20 years. As you can imagine, a retrospective study is less reliable -who really remembers all they did twenty years ago? This prospective analysis suggests that secondhand smoke exposure in childhood and adulthood is associated with a higher rate of type 2 diabetes. Thus, if we are to curb the worldwide type 2 diabetes epidemic, it will require better diets, more exercise, and extensive and lasting changes in public policy that lets those who do not smoke live in an environment that does not expose them to second hand smoke. Limiting secondhand smoke exposure by providing smoke-free environments and improving compliance with smoking bans will, without doubt, truly be an important strategy in this effort.Dr. C.

She said if you wanted to add color, use a natural, muted color over the concealer. Tip: After you apply eye cream or moisturizer, wait at least two minutes before applying concealer or shadow or it will be a wet mess.

The trend nowadays is to allow technology to advance medical treatments. It started in the last century after World War II with the discovery of penicillin and has accelerated at a pace since that time that is unmatched. Along with societys interest in health and fitness, these two things have allowed us to live longer, enjoy life and even look better. Other less important but nevertheless associated factors include a large, growing population, aging baby boomers, lack of trained people, and the desire to keep costs down, have shaped the way medicine is headed and I believe will continue to do so for a long period of time. The advent of minimally invasive procedures is here and will continue and no one can argue that they have a place and have a positive effect on health care delivery. Small incisions mean less pain and get you out of the hospital and back up to speed quicker. But I believe we must be careful and not delude ourselves to thinking that minimally invasive procedures are the treatment for every single malady that we encounter. I believe we have to be very careful because corporations and media have a tendency to promote and spin up the benefits and we must always take into account the downside and/or complications as some technologies will never Sunshine Gardens Crystal River elder care community will offer support group meetings for Alzheimers disease caregivers at 2:30 p.m. every first and third Thursday monthly.

HEALTH NOTES SUPPORT GROUPS TAMPA On Saturday, Nov. 2, an estimated 500 cyclists will gather in Indian Rocks Beach for the fourth annual Ride to Defeat ALS, a one-day, fully supported cycling event that raises funds to fight Lou Gehrigs Disease. The Ride raises funds to support programs, services and cutting-edge research for people suffering from Lou Gehrigs Disease in Florida. Each participating cyclist raises funds that support these initiatives. While the minimum fundraising amount is $250, many participants exceed this amount, raising even more funds that go directly to those affected by ALS. Everyone has a different reason for riding to get healthy, achieve a personal goal, or to ride for a loved one impacted by ALS. No matter the reason for getting involved, The Ride to Defeat ALS unites cyclists in the mission to help people living with Lou Gehrigs Disease. The one-day ride, organized by The ALS Association Florida Chapter, was named the Event of the Year by the Florida Bicycle Association and includes three routes of varying intensity (5-mile, 25-mile, or 62-mile) for riders of all skill levels. Each route was designed for optimum safety and takes riders through scenic areas of Pinellas County, including Fort DeSoto Park. The Ride starts and ends at the Holiday Inn Harbourside in Indian Rocks Beach. Breakfast will be served pre-ride and this years afterparty includes entertainment, lunch and ice-cold beer.

Contact Sue Littnan at 352563-9939, ext. 235. See SUPPORT / Page C5 Another week has gone by and I have another neat thing to tell you about as a dentist. A very close friend of mine broke his two front teeth this week. When he broke his teeth halfway to the gums, he found himself not raising his lip when smiling for fear that someone would see how he looked. Before this happened, he had never thought of himself as being self-conscious. Knowing he was selfconscious about his appearance and that the edges were bothering him, I offered to come in on my day off to make a temporary repair. He would have to see a specialist to address some issues before we restored them permanently. After I finished the temporary repair, he looked at it and said Why cant we just leave it this way, it looks so good? We had already discussed that, because the tooth was so badly broken, the ideal solution was to place a crown on each of the broken teeth. While addressing these two teeth, we were going to extend the crowns to another tooth that was missing. He could not have replaced this missing tooth with an implant because of various reasons, and he wanted to avoid shaving down the adjacent teeth just to replace the missing tooth. Once these two teeth broke, he thought that this might be the right time to get that missing tooth replaced. This was the case until he saw my temporary solution. Though he realizes the crowns are more protective, his concern for shaving teeth down is greater. It looks as though he will leave things as they are and hope the temporary solution (which in reality is a permanent white filling, or bonding, that I was using to hold him over until we had things ready to proceed to the crowns) works for a long period of time until something breaks again. Let me get back to the neat thing. After the day had passed, I called him after dinner to joke with him about whether or not the filling was still in place. He thanked me very sincerely, saying he felt so much better with the tooth built back up and he didnt realize how he would feel with a broken tooth. As we said goodbye, he thanked me again and said, I can smile again. To me, this is neat. It is so nice to be able to make such a difference in someones life. If there is someone you know who is thinking about dentistry as a career, let them know it is one of the greatest professions there is, and encourage them to shadow a dentist for a while to see if it is right for them. By the way, I would be happy to be the dentist they shadow. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

WEEKLYContinued from Page C5 be able to replace traditional procedures. In my field of facial plastic surgery, I remember the barbed-wire-suture facelifts a few years ago that were supposedly going to replace traditional facelifts forever. That procedure has since come and gone, but what has resulted is a procedure that uses the barbed wire technology and incorporates it with a traditional procedure. That is an example of a positive benefit from a minimally invasive surgery. It started out as being one procedure and evolved into another and that will ultimately benefit patients. As doctors, we need to embrace new technology but also we need to be open-minded and even critical if we notice problems. All doctors and surgeons want their patients to be happy and not disappointed, but if a more involved and more traditional approach to a procedure or treatment is needed, we should not be apologetic but simply explain that in certain cases, minimally invasive procedures and treatments dont always work. As doctors and patients, we must embrace new technology, but we must be a little bit jaded and be suspicious and critical, do the right thing, do the right procedure and dont base it on pressure from the media and the industry.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

A hugeheaded, duck-footed mix of beagle, boxer and basset hound was the upset winner Friday at the 25th annual World's Ugliest Dog Contest. Walle, a 4-year-old mutt from Chico, Calif., who was entered at the last minute, was judged most unsightly of 30 dogs at the Northern California competition. This dog looked like he's been Photoshopped with pieces from various dogs and maybe a few other animals, judge Brian Sobel said. Walle overcame the dominance in recent years by nearly hairless Chihuahuas, Chinese cresteds or combinations of the two. Owner Tammie Barbee got the dog when he was three months old. People come up to me and say that dog is not right, Barbee said, but I love him. Judges said they were especially impressed by Walle's bizarre waddle of a walk. Walle wins $1,500 and will make several network TV appearances next week, including NBC's Today show and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. The contest at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds gets worldwide attention, with media from around the world traveling to Petaluma, about 40 miles north of San Francisco.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JUNE25, 2013 C7 000EXK3 Doctors progress toward artificial pancreasMARILYNNMARCHIONE Associated PressDoctors are reporting a major step toward an artificial pancreas, a device that would constantly monitor blood sugar in people with diabetes and automatically supply insulin as needed. A key component of such a system an insulin pump programmed to shut down if bloodsugar dips too low while people are sleeping worked as intended in a three-month study of 247 patients. This smart pump, made by Minneapolis-based Medtronic Inc., is already sold in Europe, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reviewing it now. Whether it also can be programmed to mimic a real pancreas and constantly adjust insulin based on continuous readings from a blood-sugar monitor requires more testing, but doctors say the new study suggests thats a realistic goal. This is the first step in the development of the artificial pancreas, said Dr. Richard Bergenstal, diabetes chief at Park Nicollet, a large clinic in St. Louis Park, Minn. Before we said its a dream. We have the first part of it now and I really think it will be developed. He led the company-sponsored study and gave results Saturday at an American Diabetes Association conference in Chicago. They also were published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. The study involved people with type 1 diabetes, the kind usually diagnosed during childhood. About 5 percent of the 26 million Americans with diabetes have this type. Their bodies dont make insulin, a hormone needed to turn food into energy. That causes high blood-sugar levels and raises the risk for heart disease and many other health problems. Some people with the more common type 2 diabetes, the kind linked to obesity, also need insulin and might also benefit from a device like an artificial pancreas. For now, though, its aimed at people with type 1 diabetes who must inject insulin several times a day or get it through a pump with a narrow tube that goes under the skin. The pump is about the size of a cellphone and can be worn on a belt or kept in a pocket. The pumps give a steady amount of insulin, and patients must monitor their sugar levels and give themselves more insulin at meals or whenever needed to keep blood sugar from getting too high. A big danger is having too much insulin in the body overnight, when blood-sugar levels naturally fall. People can go into comas, suffer seizures and even die. Parents of children with diabetes often worry so much about this that they sneak into their bedrooms at night to check their childs blood-sugar monitor. In the study, all patients had sensors that continuously monitored their blood sugar. Half of them had ordinary insulin pumps and the others had pumps programmed to stop supplying insulin for two hours when blood-sugar fell to a certain threshold. Over three months, low-sugar episodes were reduced by about one-third in people using the pump with the shut-off feature. Importantly, these people had no cases of severely low blood sugar the most dangerous kind that require medical aid or help from another person. There were four cases in the group using the standard pump. As a first step, I think we should all be very excited that it works, an independent expert, Dr. Irl Hirsch of the University of Washington in Seattle, said of the programmable pump. The next step is to test having it turn off sooner, before sugar falls so much, and to have it automatically supply insulin to prevent high blood sugar, too. Dr. Anne Peters, a diabetes specialist at the University of Southern California, said the study represents a major step forward for an artificial pancreas. One participant, Spears Mallis, 34, a manager for a cancer center in Gainesville, Ga., wishes these devices were available now. He typically gets lowsugar about 8 to 10 times a week, at least once a week while hes asleep. I would set an alarm in the middle of the night just to be sure I was OK. That will cause you to not get a good night of rest, he said. Besides Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson and several other research groups are working on artificial pancreas devices. Technology likely to help patients monitor blood sugar Associated PressThe MiniMed Integrated System device, which doctors are reporting as a major step toward an artificial pancreas, would constantly monitor blood sugar in people with diabetes and automatically supply insulin as needed. According to the company-sponsored study announced at an American Diabetes Association conference in Chicago, the device worked as intended in a three-month study of 247 patients. TOMLOBIANCO Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Health care advocates in Indiana are looking at an improved training system for physicians and an expanded concept of what it means to see a doctor to help serve whats expected to be a crush of new patients seeking care starting next year. Millions of people without health insurance nationwide are set to gain coverage in 2014 as part of the federal health care overhaul, commonly referred to as Obamacare. As in many states, that will exacerbate problems in Indiana surrounding access to care in rural communities where is there is already a shortage of doctors and other health care providers. I think theres especially concern about the looming retirement of a lot of older physicians, and the expectation is because of that, and the expansion of health care, those factors will combine to make the existing shortage even more acute, said state Rep. Ed Clere, R-New Albany. The state only recently determined the depth of the shortage. The passage of the health care law in 2010 exposed the lack of information in the state about availability of health care, and it took two years to compile a comprehensive report, said David Roos, executive director of the advocacy group Covering Kids and Families of Indiana. Indiana has 3,951 primary care clinicians, a catch-all description that includes physicians, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners. Rural doctor shortage in Indiana is major issue
Its always great fun to attend an evening dinner-dance at Mamas Kuntry Kitchen Cafe. Fans of Lesa and Dale Whites homestyle cooking and deejay Salem Sawyers fabulous collection of music just love to take to the dance floor in joyful abandonment, all for a good cause. Last months event was a benefit for the Breast Cancer Support Group of Citrus County. Sponsored by the Virgilio Insurance Agency and Mamas Kuntry Kitchen, door prizes were donated by Al and Madeline Markowitz, restaurant gift certificates from Little Joeys and Mamas Kuntry Kafe, the Reyna Bell family, Mark Novak, New Concepts Hair Salon and LID Investigations. Judy Bonard, a sixyear cancer survivor, was on hand to answer any questions about the support group that has grown from seven to 40 members, as they were able to reorganize and relocate to the office of Robert Boissoneaults Oncology Institute at 522 N. Lecanto Highway in Lecanto. Bonard, the support groups leader, said their mission is to assist women who are financially unable to pay for their mammograms and radiation. Its all about someone to care and share an encouraging hug at their support meetings, she said. High praise was given to Dr. Joseph Bennett and Dr. Timothy Brant, medical advisers for the group, and the business sponsors, the Virgilios and the Kuntry Kitchen Cafe. Celebrating birthdays were Ray Taylor, Louise DeSantis, Larry Richards and John Bonard. Celebrating their anniversary were Winn and Suzanne Webb. From the opening New York, New York selection to The Twist, to the Electric Slide piece, from an impromptu conga line to romantic smooth waltzes, the music flowed and we danced the night away, networked our community cause concerns, shared ideas, enjoyed our time together once more and helped bring breast cancer awareness much-needed funds.

He urged members to stop and thank these special ladies for what they do for our community, our council and our church. The auxiliary is composed of about 70 members who conduct fundraising activities like bunko games, a Spring Fling celebration, cookbook sales and quilt raffles. They also volunteer as helpers at Knights of Columbus bingo games, money collections for the intellectually disabled, Our Lady of Grace Churchs Christian Kitchen and the churchs efforts to help area homeless people. Since 2006, the Ladies Auxiliary has donated more than $29,000 to a diverse group of nonprofit charitable agencies in Citrus County. During the same period, the Ladies Auxiliary has awarded a $1,000 scholarship annually to a graduating female Catholic high school senior in the county. In addition to providing a silverware service for 192 guests in the Knights of Columbus hall in Lecanto along Norvell Bryant Highway, they also helped the Knights pay for a new icemaker and industrial refrigerator for the council hall.

TUESDAY, JUNE25, 2013 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Denis Diderot, an 18th-century French art critic, philosopher and writer, said, There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge: observation of nature, reflection and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. At the bridge table, declarer, after observing the dummy, collects facts winners and losers and reflects by combining them. Then he tries to find the best line of play without experimentation. In todays deal, how should South play in six no-trump after West leads the club jack? As soon as North opened the bidding, South knew it was either a six or seven deal. But he started quietly with a two-diamond response. However, when North raised diamonds, South launched Blackwood to learn that the diamond king was missing. South can afford one diamond loser, not two. If the suit is splitting 2-1, there are no problems. So declarer should assume a 3-0 break. If South first cashes his ace, he loses two tricks when West discards. Similarly, if declarer starts by calling for dummys queen, he fails when East has the void. The guaranteed line is to take the first trick on the board and play the diamond three. If East pitches, South wins with his ace and leads back toward dummys queen. But when East plays the two, declarer covers with his four! Here, that wins the trick and the contract is safe. But if West takes the trick, the suit must be 2-1.

RWGN News at NineFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: My older sister, Johanna, was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer two years ago. Since then, she seems to have one new lifelong dream after another that she expects my brother and me to finance. My brother has worked hard his entire life and saved his money. He tried helping Johanna with her first dream (a house) with a loan. Her husband initially told Johanna that my brother refused to help, and Johanna told him to die a miserable death. She lightened up when she found out the truth. When the bank didnt approve the deal, she did repay most of the money. Ive tried to help her, too, but I could not afford to keep giving her money. Johannas latest dream is a hobby farm. She asked my brother to give her $18,000 as an outright gift. He told her no. Johanna stopped speaking to both of us, even though I have no control over what my brother does. Heres the real problem. Her husband recently asked both of us for money and, as always, made sure to mention that she might die any moment. They have both used her possible death to guilt us into giving her money. Annie, I love my sister, but it doesnt seem right that they use this as a weapon against us. It also bothers me that Johanna stops speaking to us if we deny her. None of us is wealthy. If I had the cash, Id give it to her. But I also understand my brothers point of view. Another sibling took him for a lot of money many years ago, running up thousands of dollars in credit card debt. There is a good possibility that nothing will come of this hobby farm, and wed all be out a lot of money, and for what? We arent young anymore. What do you advise? Torn Sister Dear Torn: Its obvious you want to be a good sister to Johanna. When someone is having health problems, you should be supportive emotionally, offer to cook meals or help with errands. But there is no obligation to buy them a hobby farm or any other expensive slice of wish fulfillment. Johanna is using her illness to manipulate you, counting on your guilt to get what she wants. Too bad she cannot appreciate what you are already giving her: your love and caring. Dear Annie: My family is planning a surprise party for my moms big birthday. One sibling lives far away, but he has frequent-flier miles and can fly free. Plus, he has friends in the area with whom to stay. The others all live nearby. However, it will cost me more than $2,000 to attend (airfare, hotel and car rental). I also am not eligible for vacation and will be docked pay for the days I miss. I want very much to attend, but my siblings have rented a venue for the party and are hiring caterers, arranging valet parking, etc. I am afraid I will not be able to afford it all. Any suggestions? Not Rich Kid Sis Dear Not Rich: Please dont wait until your siblings send you a bill. Any costs that are expected to be shared should be discussed in advance and agreed to by all parties. Call your siblings and explain your dilemma. Ask what they expect from you, and tell them what you can afford. Work it out now so there are no hard feelings down the road. Dear Annie: Disgusted said that a charitable organization had sent him various free items, including a check for $2.50. Anyone who receives an unsolicited check in the mail should read the endorsement area carefully. By signing and cashing the free check, you may be entering into an agreement to buy or invest in something in which you have no interest, and it will cost much more than you think.
