Last week, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam announced the three winners of the annual award. It recognizes agricultural enterprises that are at the forefront of developing and adopting environmentally innovative farming practices. These recipients represent the best of the best in developing and implementing progressive techniques to safeguard the environment and conserve natural resources, Putnam said. All three share a commitment to protect and preserve Floridas resources while continuing to provide top-notch agricultural products for our state, our country and across the globe. Ferris Farms occupies most of Duval Island and produces oranges, grapefruit, blueberries, strawberries and cattle. The farm has harvested the first commercial flats of strawberries in the state for the past six years and produces more than 200,000 flats of strawberries and more than 250,000 pounds of blueberries each year. The farm has reduced the use of pesticides, plastic mulch and plastic drip tube and has perfected techniques to reuse 35 percent of these materials each year and reduced Dudley CalfeeFerris Farms manager honored.

with UF Health (formerly Shands). Stroke is the fifth highest cause of death in Citrus County and the fourth highest cause of death in the nation. It is the number one cause of adult disability in the U.S. In Citrus County, from 2009 to 2011 an annual average of 213 people died from stroke and an average of 775 were hospitalized each of those years. Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center treats approximately 50 people a year for stroke (who come to the hospital through the 911 system), said Dr. Mary Anne Kolar, SRRMC medical director of emergency services. Of those, many experience a better outcome because of the stroke alert system thats in place. Heres the process: Someone calls 911 and even as an ambulance is dispatched, the dispatcher is gathering information to relay to EMS staff symptoms and the time of onset. Time of onset is the most important factor for us to know, said Trish Dourm, SRRMC clinical educator and stroke champion. Knowing the exact time it happened helps us determine if theyre a candidate for TPA (Tissue Plasminogen Activator). TPA is a clot buster drug thats only effective within a short window of time after a stroke caused by a blood clot. EMS staff calls ahead to the hospital and a stroke alert is called. The person arrives and a phlebotomist is on hand to draw blood before the person is whisked off to radiology for a CT scan to determine if the stroke was caused by a clot or a bleed. If the person is a candidate for TPA, the drug is given through an IV that was inserted in the ambulance. All this takes maybe 10 minutes, from ER door to CT scan, said ER nurse Kevin Morgan. We also do an initial NIH (National Institute of Health) stroke scale, which gauges neurological function. If TPA is started, the patient is reassessed, because often when TPA starts and blood flow starts returning, theyll improve rapidly, so the NIH scale will change quickly. Next, the person goes to the Intensive Care Unit to continue TPA and be monitored for any complications. We monitor the NIH scale and start the initial consult for speech and physical therapy, said Rae Jean Nieland, RN, director of critical care. One of the big things we do is called dysphagia screening tool we have to know that you can swallow. We start working with the patient right away. If the patient requires more extensive treatment, SRRMCs alliance with UF Health allows them to immediately transfer the patient to Gainesville. While in ICU, the reasons for the stroke are investigated. We need to know why you had a stroke, what predisposed you hypertension, high cholesterol, plaque somewhere, arrhythmia? If you have one stroke, the risk for another quadruples, Dourm said. After as few as two or three days, the person is ready for intensive rehab therapy physical, occupational, speech and respiratory, if needed three hours a day for an average of about 25 days. The key is to not wait and see or even put someone in the car and drive them to the hospital if you suspect a stroke, Dourm said. Kolar added, Even if the persons symptoms are vague, its not a waste of hospital resources, like coming to the ER with a non-life-threatening condition such as a cold. When you have a symptom that falls into the category of a stroke a headache, weakness, transient change in vision or speech, dizziness any of these could be critically life-threatening. Even if its not a stroke, it could signal something that could lead to one.

Putnam noted the operation is a leading example of increasing crop yields and decreasing production cost through innovation. He called Calfee last week to give him the news. I was surprised, I really didnt see that coming, Calfee said. I really didnt think anybody noticed what we were doing on the island. Ferris Farms has been committed to protecting the environment and trying to farm as efficiently and modern as possible. Calfee said they have found that following environmental practices has actually lowered costs. Its a beautiful place and we want it to stay that way, he said. But its a farm and it has to work. He added that having this environmental leadership award and having Dale McClellan, owner of M&B Dairy in Lecanto, named Southeastern Farmer of the Year, speaks well for agriculture in Citrus County. The other two Agriculture-Environmental Leadership Awards went to Barbra Goering of The Farmton Tree Farm, a 59,000-acre forest timber operation straddling Volusia and Brevard counties, and Shane Platt of Kissimmee Park Properties in St. Cloud. His goal has been to protect the family ranch as both an economic source and as a sustainable wildlife habitat and ecological component to the region. The winners will be recognized at the Florida Farm Bureaus Convention in October. CALFEEContinued from Page A1
Associated PressSANFORD Trayvon Martins father testified Monday that he never denied it was his sons voice screaming for help on a 911 call, contradicting police officers earlier testimony at George Zimmer mans second-degree murder trial. Tracy Martin was the latest in a series of witnesses called by lawyers on both sides who are seeking to convince jurors of who was the aggressor in the confrontation that left Trayvon Martin dead. Later in the day, the judge ruled that defense attorneys may present evidence to the jury that Trayvon Martin had marijuana in his system when he died. The teens father testified he merely told officers he couldnt tell if it was his son after his first time listening to the call which captured the audio of fight between Martin and Zimmerman. I never said that wasnt my sons voice, said Tracy Martin, who added that he concluded it was his son after listening to the call as many as 20 times. Before Tracy Martin took the witness stand, the lead investigator probing Martins death testified the father had answered no when the detective asked if the screams belonged to Trayvon Martin. Officer Chris Serino played the 911 call for Tracy Martin in the days immediately following Trayvon Martins death in February 2012. He looked away and under his breath he said no, Serino said of Tracy Martin. Officer Doris Singleton backed up Serinos account. Convincing the jury of who was screaming for help on the tape is important to both sides because it would help jurors evaluate Zimmermans selfdefense claim. Relatives of Martins and George Zimmermans have offered conflicting opinions about who is heard screaming. Late in the day, Judge Debra Nelson made a key ruling out of the presence of the jury. The judge denied a prosecution request to keep out parts of a toxicology report that shows Trayvon Martin had small amounts of marijuana in his system. Prosecutors argued the information would be prejudicial. But defense attorneys said it was relevant since Zimmerman believed Martin was under the influence at the time he spotted him in his neighborhood. Most of the day was taken up by a series of Zimmermans friends called to testify that the screams on the recording were his, and the 911 call was played multiple times in the courtroom. Feral felines await new place to prowlNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Snoopy, Q-Tip, Big Gray, Whisper, Pines, Popcorn and Torty, especially Torty, are not happy. Five of these seven feral cats that had been living in Whispering Pines Park, and that volunteers from the Humanitarians of Florida had been feeding since August 2011, now live in cages inside a house belonging to the Humanitarians. Two of the cats have yet to be caught and are not being fed by the Humanitarians per a directive from the city of Inverness. On May 31, Eric Williams, assistant city manager and manager-in-training, told the Humanitarians the cats conflict with the citys agreement with the state of Florida which owns the park property as part of the state forest system to not alter the habits or habitats of the natural wildlife. The city offered other locations, which the Humanitarians said arent suitable. Since then, the Humanitarians have successfully trapped and removed five of the cats, but theyre not at all happy living in cages, and all but one are not suitable for adoption. These cats are feral, said Humanitarians president Maggie Hypes. And one is very mean. At last weeks Inverness City Council meeting, members of the Humanitarians pled their case, asking that the exiled cats be returned to their home in the park. We agree that having feral cats in the park is not an ideal situation, and we appreciate the citys offer to relocate these cats to other city property near the airport, but thats not the best option for the cats or the caregivers, Hypes said. Right now, the cats are in feline limbo, caged until the situation is resolved. In a wildlife area, feral cats present a problem when people intervene under the impression they are trying to help, said Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni. Interfering with natural surroundings to modify a natural outcome by feeding cats and/or creating cat colonies, under the land management plans criteria, is clearly inappropriate. Since last weeks city council meeting, both the Humanitarians and city admini stration have been seeking a suitable outcome. We met with Eric (Williams) on Friday and he showed us some alternative property, Hypes said Monday. Williams also volunteered to cut a path into the property so the volunteers who feed can get to the site easily. That had been one of the concerns with the location near the airport. Hypes said Humanitarians board members will discuss it together before they decide anything. But the best thing would be for them to go back to Whispering Pines Park, because thats where they have been, she said. Theyll eventually just die out and then theyll be gone. We dont understand why things have to be changed. Whispering Pines is their natural habitat, and right now theyre not happy.Around theSTATE Citrus CountyCoupons collected for troopsThe Womens Political Network of Citrus County has adopted an overseas military base to send money-saving coupons to.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, JULY 9, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Awesome Ag Day planned for children PATFAHERTY Staff writerLECANTO Citrus County children will get their annual opportunity to explore farming life and learn how food gets from the field to their tables. Plans are being finalized for Awesome Ag Day 2013, scheduled for Friday, July 26, at Lecanto High School. We are looking at about 140 kids coming out, Joan Bradshaw, director of the Citrus County Extension Service, said. They will combine hands-on farm activities and classroom time. Bradshaw provided an update on the event at Mondays meeting of the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County. Ag Day topics will include seed germination, horticulture, Fresh from Florida, forestry, nutrition, goats, cattle, rabbits and poultry. There will be a lot of activ ities going on, she said. They are partnering with the YMCA. It will also involve 4-H, Future Farmers of America, the extension service, related agencies and volunteers. She said the event came about when the alliance felt there was a need to get children to understand where their food comes and its relationship with the farm. She also provided an update on the current 4-H director vacancy. Bradshaw said the county approved filling the position and candidates will be interviewed in Gainesville, since applicants have to meet University of Florida re quire ments. She said the goal is to have the position filled by the middle of August. Chairman Dale McClellan reminded members on the upcoming Movember Shave-off event to raise funds and awareness about prostate cancer. He said the alliance supports the event, Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center is involved, theChroniclewill publish a special blue newspaper and High Octane will host a poker run fundraiser. More details will be announced. The alliance is planning a dove hunt and barbecue fundraiser again this year, that will be open to the public. It will most likely be in December.

Birthday To be successful in the year ahead, you should free yourself from all distractions and focus on your goals and objectives. If you attempt to do too much too fast, it could quickly lead to your undoing. Cancer (June 21-July 22) This may not be one of your better days for managing resources, either yours or other peoples. Even if asked to do so, dont take on any fiscal responsibilities. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If someone thinks youre acting self-serving, this person might place obstacles in your path just to trip you up. Dont give them an excuse to interfere be openly generous and altruistic. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When attempting to fulfill an ambitious objective, you should keep moderation in mind. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Any involvement that has strong elements of risk or speculation would be best avoided today. Theres a chance that your belief in losing might take precedence over your will to win. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Even though youre apt to be ambitious and industrious, you might do things the hard way, which will end up being counterproductive. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If youre trying to bluff your way through something, you had better have a good poker face. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It will take some exceptionally shrewd maneuvering on your part to come out on top in a business matter. Keep this in mind when you sit down to negotiate. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Strive to maintain harmony and balance in all of your personal and business affairs. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Sadly, others wont be as eager to help you as you are to help others. Dont embarrass yourself by requesting a favor from someone unless its absolutely necessary. Aries (March 21-April 19) Even though you try to promote cooperation, you might still run into someone who resists all such attempts. Dont be afraid to play rough. Taurus (April 20-May 20) If you find yourself having to share credit with someone you dislike, dont make your feelings obvious. Be above it all and give acknowledgement where it is due. Gemini (May 21-June 20) It isnt likely that youll get others to have faith in your ideas if you show doubt about them yourself. Have confidence or go home.

ENTERTAINMENT Colin Firth statue rises from lakeLONDON Its Colin Firth but not as we know him. Hes 12 feet tall and made of fiberglass. A statue of brooding Mr. Darcy the character played by Firth in Pride and Prejudice has been installed in Londons Serpentine Lake. The figure shows Darcy emerging from the water in a soaked shirt, recreating a scene from the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austens novel. The scene helped turn Firth into a sex symbol and is regularly voted among Britains most memorable TV moments. Lead sculptor Toby Crowther said the work took the lake scene as a starting point but also drew on other depictions of Austens romantic hero. The statue was placed in the Hyde Park lake Monday to promote a new TV channel dedicated to British drama.Randy Travis in critical conditionNASHVILLE, Tenn. Country music star Randy Travis was in critical condition Monday in a Texas hospital, a day after he was hospitalized with viral cardiomyopathy. A news release from the singers publicist said Travis was admitted to the hospital Sunday in Dallas and is in critical condition. Kirt Webster, Travis publicist, said no other details about Travis condition were available Monday. Viral cardiomyopathy is a heart condition caused by a virus. The illness is a continuation of a tough run for the 54-year-old Three Wooden Crosses singer after a handful of recent highprofile appearances, including a performance during the Country Music Association Festivals nightly concert series. Travis pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in January following his arrest last year when he was found naked after crashing his Pontiac Trans Am.Lauryn Hill starts prison sentenceDANBURY, Conn. Lauryn Hill has started serving a threemonth prison sentence in Connecticut for failing to pay about $1 million in taxes over the past decade. Ed Ross, a spokesman for the federal Bureau of Prisons, says the Grammy-winning singer reported Monday to the federal prison in Danbury. Hill started singing with the Fugees as a teenager in the 1990s before releasing her multiplatinum 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. She pleaded guilty last year in New Jersey to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. The South Orange, N.J., resident had faced a maximum sentence of one year each on three counts of failing to file taxes. Her attorney had sought probation, arguing that Hills charitable works, her family circumstances and the fact she paid back the taxes she owed should merit consideration.Kid Rock announces cruise ship tripDETROIT Kid Rock is inviting fans to set sail with him on his fifth annual Chillin the Most Cruise next year.

George was born April 23, 1935, in Philadelphia, Pa., to George P Woodward and Laura (Hankinson) Woodward. The family moved to Roslyn, Pa., in 1946, and he joined the Navy as a seaman recruit on Oct. 23, 1953, following graduation from Abington Senior High School. He attended the Navys Aerology (meteorology) school at Lakehurst, N.J.. After graduation, he was assigned duty at Naval Air Facility, Annapolis, Md., as assistant flight forecaster for the seaplanes then based there, as well as providing weather maps and meteorology instruction for the U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen. His next assignment was as flight forecaster onboard the aircraft carrier USS Lake Champlain (CVA-39). In 1956, he was transferred to the battleship USS Iowa (BB-61) where he served as the ships aerographer, responsible for all weather forecasting and for upper-air ballistic wind analysis to aid the big guns. He made a Mediterranean cruise onboard Iowa as part of the 6th Fleet, traveling up the Dardanelles to Istanbul, Turkey. In 1957, Iowa carried 700 midshipmen for their summer training cruise to Rio de Janeiro and Trinidad. For the cruise, he was appointed director of the ships choir and editor of the ships cruise book, the last one published before Iowa entered the inactive mothball fleet. After returning to the USA, he was released from active duty as a petty officer second class. He then attended West Chester (Pennsylvania) State University where he majored in biology and physical science. He worked his way through college as a summer police officer in Ocean City, N.J., and as a rock n roll singer. He graduated in 1961 with a Bachelor of Science degree, then completed graduate courses at Pennsylvania State University and the University of Florida. For several years, he taught biology and general science at Abington (Pennsylvania) High School, then left teaching to become a medical magazine editor for a pharmaceutical company in Philadelphia. In 1965, he received a direct commission in the Navy Reserve from President Lyndon B. Johnson, with the rank of Lieutenant junior grade, and held Reserve positions in Pennsylvania, California, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. He also served two-week tours onboard USS Guam, USS Iwo Jima and at the Pentagon. He participated in the 1984 recommissioning of the battleship USS Iowa, going back onboard after 27 years, with responsibilities for White House liaison and press relations. He performed a similar function for the recommissioning of the USS Wisconsin (BB-64) in 1988. He was retired from the Navy in 1990 with the rank of captain, and received a letter of appreciation for his many years of service from President George H.W. Bush. Among his decorations are the Meritorious Service Medal and two Navy Commendation Medals. George spent 10 years working for the Miller Brewing Company in the government affairs department. His last position with Miller was director of federal relations in Washington, D.C. In addition, he spent several years as a reserve lieutenant with the Santa Cruz, Calif., Sheriffs Department. He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant sister Laura; his first wife, Mary Louise (Cranmer); and his wife of 35 years, Cecelia Elise (Bodkin). He is survived by two sons, George P Buddy Woodward III, of Spartanburg, S.C., and Todd Daniel Woodward, of Eugene, Ore.; a sister, Susan Marriott of Pottstown, Pa.; and two nephews, Haydn Marriott of Skippack, Pa., and Erich Marriott of Cranford, N.J. George and Cecelia lived in the Florida Keys for 10 years, where he sang and acted with a community theater group. He also volunteered his boat and himself as driver for a Florida marine science project, reintroducing conch on the coral reefs. They moved to Sugarmill Woods in 2005, where he volunteered more than1,000 hours as a boat captain at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. He was also active in the choir and other activities at Homosassas First United Methodist Church. His hobbies included flower gardening, photography, reading (especially history of World War II and the Civil War), bird watching and foreign travel. With Cecelia, he traveled around South America, through the Baltic, in Europe and the Middle East. He was a life member of the Navy Memorial, U.S. Naval Institute and Navy League. Other memberships included the American Legion and The Veterans Association of the USS Iowa. He has directed that his ashes be spread at sea by the Neptune Society. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Georges name can be made to The Veterans Association of the USS Iowa (BB-61), 2916 N.W.

about 390 miles eastsoutheast of Barbados and was moving westnorthwest near 26 mph The center of the tropical storm was expected to churn over the Atlantic and reach the small islands on the eastern rim of the Caribbean early Tuesday and then move into the Caribbean Sea. At this point, forecasters with the U.S. National Hurricane Center expect that wind shear and interaction with the mountains of Hispaniola and Cuba will cause Chantal to start weakening in about three days and it is expected to be a tropical depression Friday over the Bahamas. But U.S. forecasters said Chantal could be near hurricane strength on Wednesday before it reaches Hispaniola, the island shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Both countries are very vulnerable to flooding and landslides from storms, but widespread deforestation and ramshackle housing in Haiti mean even moderate rains are a significant threat. In St. Lucias capital of Castries, supermarkets, gas stations and hardware stores remained open on Monday and there were few signs of islanders stocking up on emergency supplies. The economy is not at its best and as a result I dont think people have money to spend on speculative weather, said Josephine Quarless. But the government was taking no chances, ordering a midday closure of all schools until Wednesday. The director of the local meteorological office warned that parts of the island could potentially be impacted by landslides and flooding. A tropical storm warning was issued for St. Lucia, Barbados, Dominica, Puerto Rico and the French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. A tropical storm watch was in effect for the U.S. Virgin Islands and parts of the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. In Barbados, officials urged people to stay tuned to radio stations and prepare for the rapid approach of Chantal, the Atlantic seasons third named storm. This is hurricane season so we urge Barbadians to be prepared, said Kerry Hinds, deputy director of the islands emergency management department.

Odum Florida Springs Institute; and Gary Kuhl, former executive director of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. They will discuss threats to Kings Bay and actions contemplated or under way to protect the Kings Bay basin and restore it to a healthy functional state. They will respond to questions from the audience. Started up only a couple of months ago, the KBSA has responded to the degradation that is affecting Kings Bay caused by reduced flow volume and pollution. In a recent column in the Chronicle, Spivey, Knight and Tracy Colson, KBSA president, said the group will tirelessly advocate for comprehensive solutions to the reduced flows, impaired water quality, proliferation of noxious algae and loss of water clarity that have plagued Kings Bay and diminished the local economy for more than 30 years. Knight has said the bays impairments originate in the spring shed, the recharge basin that is suffering from regional drawdown that results in declining spring flow. An increasing load of nitrogen and nutrients increases the growth of algae. Efforts to restore the bay during the past half century have not solved the underlying problem of lowered spring flow and raised nitrate levels. The groups goal is to develop a plan for comprehensive restoration. In hosting the public meeting, the KSBA is seeking support to achieve its restoration goals. Group members seek to get the message out to county government, the water district, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and the governor that substantive measures are needed to restore the bay. Residents attending the meeting will get to learn why the good health of the bay is important to the county, the organizers stated. BAYContinued from Page A1 STORMContinued from Page A1

Interestrates Associated PressTrader Kevin Coulter works Monday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Stocks rise as earnings kick off; chipmakers fall Associated PressNEW YORK Cautious optimism about corporate earnings sent the stock market higher Monday. U.S. companies start reporting their secondquarter results this week, led by aluminum producer Alcoa. Other major companies that will report include JPMorgan and Wells Fargo. Analysts predict that earnings growth for companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index will come in at 3 percent in the second quarter. While that rate would be down from 5 percent in the first quarter, earnings are still expected to reach record levels. Investors and traders will search for evidence that companies are increasing revenues, not just cutting costs to boost profits. Sales growth is predicted to fall 0.3 percent in the second quarter. Well be looking to see where revenue comes in, said Jim Dunigan, an executive vice president of investments at PNC. The Dow rose 88.85 points, or 0.6 percent, to close at 15,224.69. The Standard & Poors 500 index gained 8.57 points, or 0.5 percent, to end at 1,640.46. Dell was among the big gainers in the S&P 500 index. An advisory firm recommended that company shareholders support a plan to take the computer company private. Founder Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners have offered to buy Dell for $24.4 billion, or $13.65 a share. Dell rose 41 cents, or 3.1 percent, to $13.44. The Russell 2000 index, an index of small-company stocks, closed at an alltime high 1,009.25. The index past the 1,000 mark for the first time Friday and has gained 19 percent this year, a sign that investors are more willing to take on risk. The gains have outpaced those of the Dow and S&P 500, which are up 16 percent and 15 percent, respectively. In other trading, the Nasdaq composite rose 5.45, or 0.2 percent, to 3,484.83, the smallest gain of the major indexes. The index was weighed down by a slump in Intel. The chipmaker fell after a Citigroup analyst wrote that weak PC sales and waning demand for smartphones would stunt the companys growth. Intel, which makes up 2.2 percent of the Nasdaq, fell 88 cents, or 3.6 percent, to $23.18. Other chipmakers also declined. Qualcomm dropped 96 cents, or 1.6 percent, to $59.99. In government bond trading, the yield on the 10-year government note pulled back from a two-year high of 2.74 Friday. It fell to 2.64 percent on Monday. Barnes & Noble CEO William Lynch resignsNEW YORK Barnes & Noble Inc. said William Lynch is resigning as chief executive after three years on the job. The book retailer is naming Michael Huseby as president of the company and chief executive of its Nook Media unit. The New York company also said it has promoted controller Allen Lindstrom to the post of chief financial officer. The moves come just weeks after Barnes & Noble reported that sales plummeted at its bookstores in the latest quarter and its Nook e-book devices failed to keep up with competitors. That pushed the company to a net loss that more than doubled from a year ago. Shares of Barnes & Noble slid 3.6 percent in after-hours trading.Companies abandon copper telephone linesMANTOLOKING, N.J. Robert Post misses his phone line. Post, 85, has a pacemaker that needs to be checked once a month by phone. But the copper wiring that once connected his home to the rest of the world is gone, and the phone company refuses to restore it. In October 2012, Superstorm Sandy pushed the sea over Posts neighborhood in Mantoloking, N.J., leaving hundreds of homes wrecked, and one floating in the bay. The homes on this sandy spit of land along the Jersey Shore are being rebuilt, but Verizon doesnt want to replace washed-away lines and waterlogged underground cables. Phone lines are outdated, the company says. Mantoloking is one of the first places in the country where the traditional phone line is going dead. For now, Verizon, the countrys second-largest landline phone company, is taking the lead by replacing phone lines with wireless alternatives. But competitors including AT&T have made it clear they want to follow. Its the beginning of a technological turning point, representing the receding tide of copper-wire landlines that have been used since commercial service began in 1877.Alcoa posts $119 million 2Q loss on restructuring costsNEW YORK Alcoa Inc.s second-quarter loss widened due to weak aluminum prices, although the results were slightly better than expected after excluding restructuring and legal costs. The company continues to see strong sales of aluminum products for automobiles and airplanes. Alcoa said Monday that its loss in the Aprilthrough-June quarter was $119 million, or 11 cents per share. That compared with a loss of $2 million, or break-even on a per-share basis, a year earlier.Studies: Cyberspying targeted SKorea, US militarySEOUL, South Korea The hackers who knocked out tens of thousands of South Korean computers simultaneously this year are out to do far more than erase hard drives, cybersecurity firms say: They also are trying to steal South Korean and U.S. military secrets with a malicious set of codes theyve been sending through the Internet for years. The identities of the hackers, and the value of any information they have acquired, are not known to U.S. and South Korean researchers who have studied line after line of computer code. But they do not dispute South Korean claims that North Korea is responsible, and other experts say the links to military spying add fuel to Seouls allegations. Researchers at Santa Clara, Californiabased McAfee Labs said the malware was designed to find and upload information referring to U.S. forces in South Korea, joint exercises or even the word secret.US consumer borrowing up as credit card use risesWASHINGTON Americans increased their borrowing in May at the fastest pace in a year. Borrowing in the category that includes credit cards reached its highest point since the fall of 2010. Increased borrowing typically means that consumers are feeling more confident. Americans stepped up their borrowing by $19.6 billion in May compared with April, the Federal Reserve said Monday in its monthly report on consumer credit. That was the biggest jump since a $19.9 billion rise in May 2012. Total borrowing reached a record $2.84 trillion.Companies move ahead with Bangladesh safety accordNEW YORK A group of primarily European retailers and clothing makers said Monday that it plans to inspect clothing factories in Bangladesh that make garments for the companies within the next nine months and will concentrate renovations on those that pose the biggest safety threat. The group of 70 companies includes Swedish retailer H&M, Italian clothing maker Benetton and French retailer Carrefour. Under the companies agreement, they are required to pay administrative costs for the inspections, training and other programs. And theyre also responsible for ensuring that sufficient funds are available to pay for renovations and other safety improvements. The details of the legally binding five-year pact come after negotiating with worker rights groups and other organizations on how the plan should be carried out. The plan, announced in mid-May, initially had about 30 companies signing on. The plan covers anywhere from 800 to about 1,000 of the 5,000 garment factories in Bangladesh.Firm recommends vote for Dell founders offerNEW YORK A top proxy advisory firm is recommending that Dell shareholders vote in favor of a deal that would allow the companys founder and an investment firm to buy the computer maker and take it private. Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners have offered to buy Round Rock, Texas-based Dell Inc. for $13.65 per share, or a total of $24.4 billion. Michael Dell believes he can turn the company around by taking it private and diversifying into niches, such as business software, data storage and consulting. From wire reports BusinessHIGHLIGHTS
No dogs, no catsConcerning pets, dogs in restaurants and stores: I have a dog. I have had animals, pets, all my life and I would never think of taking one into a store or a restaurant. Im also a farmer. I have had pigs and calves and sheep. I sure wouldnt take them into a restaurant or store. The sign on the door usually says, No shirt, no shoes, no service. How about No dogs, no cats. These people should not allow animals in their restaurants ... if the animal has visible proof that it is a service attendant dog, its OK.Dont let them sufferThe animal shelter story about not having fans; well, these poor animals have to live in those conditions when they take the money for bicycle lanes, for roads and for other nonsense that shouldnt be. Then the poor animals just dont have any air conditioning. I mean its bad enough that you put them to sleep. Why must they suffer beforehand? Take care of dogsI was quite disturbed about the article Dogs will die soon, that was in the C3 section of the Sunday paper (June 30) ... I think its outrageous that nobody is watering and feeding or picking up these dogs. They should be removed from that property and taken into custody.Could be avoidedTo all Citrus County residents who this applies to: Please spay and neuter your pets. Two thousand cats a year needlessly put to death. Come on, now. There are numerous low-cost programs in existence to help you. These are Gods creations. A change in Gods plan and you could have been a cat and for all the dog lovers: leave your dogs at home. Its not a treat for them to go for a ride and then roast in the car because you took longer than you thought. Wake up, people. Rubber-eating squirrelsIm calling in reference to the man who feeds the gray squirrels and says they dont destroy electrical wiring. Well, I had a Cadillac and they ate $1,100 worth of rubber off the wiring in the Cadillac. I had to take it to the garage to get it fixed and a $500 deductible is what it cost me. He can feed them all he wants to and thats good. Maybe he better just stay out there and feed them, because when he quits, theyre going to hunt something out to eat. What I did then was put a bag of mothballs, tied them under the car in the front to keep the squirrels out, but they will eat the rubber out of your car. OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, JULY 9, 2013 Jesus espoused forgiveness, toleranceThis letter is in response to two letters by Mr. Brad L. Block, Truth about Christians, and Ideas that destroy society. You are clearly using only your head, Mr. Block, for it is in a persons heart that love, kindness and humility live. In your first letter, the judgmental, hate-filled quotes you cited are actually hurting and doing harm onto others. The quotes you cited are the opinions of men, Moses and Paul, thats right, opinions of men. It must have taken you a long time to go through the entire Bible to find five small quotes filled with hatred. Wouldnt it have been better to use that time to find quotes that were loving, kind or generous? But thats just my opinion. With a very rare exceptional occasion, 99.9 percent of people who are gay are born that way. It is not a choice. If this issue was so important, why didnt Jesus himself say anything about it, at least once? If it truly mattered, wouldnt it be on the top of his list, and wouldnt he have repeated it over and over? Yet he doesnt mention a word about it. What he does mention is love thy neighbor as thyself, not love your neighbor, unless hes gay. He also speaks about tolerance, forgiveness and to never judge people. In John 6:32, Jesus says, I am telling you the truth, what Moses gave you was not the bread from Heaven. Jesus, who spoke in parables, was saying that following man-made laws, created by an ego that sees itself as separate from God, will not bring you life. The life Jesus is speaking about is the understanding of the total unicity of God. Now Jesus, that long-haired man with a beard who wore sandals and drank wine, who was a radical, completely tried to dispose of, the traditional laws of the religion, with their man-made morals, that was the power structure that was in place at that period in time. He took the power and money away from the Pharisees, which is why they had him killed. Jesus says to the Pharisees in Luke 17:20-21, The kingdom of God does not come in such as way as to be seen. No one will say, Look here it is! Or There it is! because the Kingdom of God is within you. With this small passage, Jesus takes all the power of the Pharisees away by telling them they are not needed, and God can be found within. Jesus also told a rich man in Matthew, Luke, and also in Mark 10:21, Jesus looked straight at him with love and said, Go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor. That sounds like wealth distribution to me, although, once again, this is just my opinion.James Mack Pine Ridge JOHNMCFADDEN Special to the ChronicleThe Chroniclesthoughtful editorial on July 4 made me reflect on where our nation has been and what it has become. When I first became aware of the importance of this day, we had just won the most destructive war in history. More than 418,000 of us had died to free lands that were not ours; to end the slaughter of people we did not know. At home, the GI bill released a flood of talent and genius that came to be known as The Greatest Generation. We were home to the worlds greatest artists. We had the worlds greatest schools; the worlds most advanced medical care; the worlds most free press and the most productive economy in history. Without question, we were the worlds greatest nation. AMERICAN CREED All this was possible because of a uniquely American culture founded upon the essential dignity of the individual human being, the fundamental equality of all men and the unalienable rights of freedom, justice and a fair opportunity that Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal called The American Creed. We respected the morals and ethics of Christianity. We accepted responsibility for our actions. We believed that dedication, self-sacrifice and hard work would bring success. We honored the rule of law. But it was individualism we valued most; the God-given right to do whatever we pleased as long as it was within the law and gave no harm to others. To be sure, few, if any, met those high standards but however much we may have deviated from these principles, they were overwhelmingly endorsed by the American people. Attracted by our success and knowing they could succeed here, immigrants flooded our country. Because we needed blue collar labor we created programs to accelerate their assimilation. English language classes were added to public schools curricula. States funded intensive language classes and private programs sprung up everywhere. Assimilation was not flawless, of course, and newly arrived foreigners usually encountered discrimination. But because most of them genuinely wanted to be Americans, they adopted The Creed and eventually came to be regarded as Americans, not foreigners. E PLURIBUS RETRO In the mid-1960s, liberal intellectuals launched a powerful movement advancing the ideologies of ethnic diversity and multiculturalism as an alternative to the cultural and creedal components of American identity. Instead of a single, unified nation built around a generally accepted set of ideals, they regarded the U.S. as a conglomeration of suppressed sub-national identities. They encouraged programs to enhance the status of those groups. They granted ethnic minorities privileges not offered to Anglo-Saxons. They obtained racial preferences to minorities. They worked to supplant the history of America with the history of American minorities. They downgraded the centrality of English in American life and pushed for linguistic diversity. DECONSTRUCTION Starting in 1967, the advocates of multiculturalism took advantage of the anti-war sentiment that flourished among college students. They considered our entire government to be illegitimate and thus were not bound by our laws. They were the perfect tool to spread multicultural theories. The students came to equate capitalism with the unfair distribution of wealth and power; with social alienation and economic inequality; with cultural exploitation and repression of workers. They sneered at anything associated with contemporary American life; everything from Christianity and our family values to Joe DiMaggio and cupcakes (Mrs. Robinson by Paul Simon). They supplanted our values with a culture based on free sex and free drugs. They replaced In God We Trust, with If It Feels Good, Do It. Philosophically, deconstruction created a gap between a liberal elite and the American people over the fundamental issues of what America is and what it should be. Perceptibly, ethnic diversity divided our nation into several unassimilated ethnic and linguistic groups. We have granted them the right to conduct their daily affairs as if they had never left their home country. At the same time, they benefit from the largess of our welfare programs and individual freedom. And all the while they disdain the cultural and creedal components of our culture that made those benefits and freedoms possible. At the 2005 Gold Cup Soccer match between the Mexican and American national teams, MexicanAmericans booed our National Anthem. They did so again last year. By the turn of the 21st century, the cults of multiculturalism and ethnic diversity had successfully disemboweled the most successful social, political and economic experiment in history. REQUIEM The crisis of 1941 created the greatest generation. The crisis of 2008 showed us to be corrupt and self-serving. Our Declaration of Independence affirmed that a government ... deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed was an unalienable right. According to opinion polls published between 2009 and May 2010, a majority of Americans opposed the Affordable Care Act. President Obama signed it into law anyway. It was the founders intention that laws were passed to protect individual freedoms. Today they are passed to increase government control. In the 1950s our families were the primary transmitters of morals and ethics. Last year, only half our marriages survived more than eight years, and more than half the babies born last year were born out of wedlock. We are seventh in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, third in median household income, fourth in labor force, fourth in exports, seventh in divorce rates, 49th in life expectancy and 178th in infant mortality. We used to be better than this. Seventy-five years ago, becoming white and Anglo were the means by which blacks and Hispanics overcame discrimination. We used to call ourselves Americans, not Democrats or Republicans. We used to vote for people because we favored their policies, not their race or their gender. We used to offer everyone a chance to succeed, not grant them that success gratis. We used to try to eliminate poverty not try to rescue the poor. We used to fight wars for moral reasons. We used to pass laws for moral reasons. We used to judge guilt or innocence on legal grounds. We used to be the greatest nation in the world. We are no longer that.

Under the agreement, the county will pay Schneider Electric an international energy company for improvements designed to promote energy efficiency in seven county buildings. The money will be repaid over 15 years, and Schneider guarantees the county will save enough in energy costs to make the payments or the company will pay the county the difference. Borrowing money at a time when the county is facing serious budget shortfalls seems at first counter-intuitive, and repaying money with future savings is a bit of a headscratcher. However, this program is something the county has not done before, because it represents an investment in improvements the county would have to make anyway, with a guarantee that the investments will pay for themselves one way or the other. While the improvements will be made this year and next, the first payment is not due for 16 months, when the energy-saving programs and equipment will have begun producing savings in the countys energy budget. In gambling terms, this is called betting on the come, meaning you dont have the resources now, but you expect to have them when they are needed. But Schneiders contractual commitment to make up any deficiency between the energy savings and the debt payment lowers the risk. With this proviso, this looks like a reasonable bet with minimal downside risk. Still, this project will need careful monitoring to assure that the savings are being realized. The payments will go on for the next 15 years. This is a long time, and much can change during this time. For the duration of the loan, savings need to be at least equal to and preferably more than the costs. The county needs to stay on top of the program over this time to make sure this happens. THE ISSUE:County commission to borrow money for energy improvements.OUR OPINION:Guarantees lower risk, but county needs to stay on top of program.

Fred Ferris from the TranSystems Corp. said his study essentially ruled out anything but the use of barges for the port, because the barge canals depth of 12 to 13 feet cannot accommodate container ships. He then said the ports biggest potential is as an exporter of bulk materials, such as wood pallets, stone/ aggregate and precast concrete slabs or other concrete products utilizing jumbo hopper barges to carry the cargo to other ports along the coast. When I moved to Homosassa to live on the water 17 years ago, I learned quickly the highs and lows of the tide in the Gulf vary on average plus or minus 1 to 2 feet, but if a strong wind is coming out of the Northeast, it will blow the water out of the rivers, canals and estuaries into the Gulf, and it can easily add another coastal tidal range of 3 to maybe 4 more feet of lost water level all along the Nature Coast. When that happens, the normal barge canal depth of 12 feet goes down to 8 to 9 feet of canal depth. Mr. Ferris then explained that the proposed ocean-going shallow draft barges and tugs would tow jumbo hopper barges 35 feed wide by 195 feet long, which when fully loaded with stone/ aggregate, or concrete products, will draw and/or extend 11 feet down into the water (or mud). So now we are being asked to believe that on a windy day we can somehow float 11 foot deep loaded barges in 8 to 9 feet of water in the barge canal an interesting concept, to say the least. Also as Commissioner Scott Adams pointed out, any astute and successful business man or woman when working on any project will always consider staff time and any associated expenses as a business expense allocation to the project, to know exactly what it is costing the company, and whether it is time and money well spent, which our BOCC Chairman Joe Meek thinks is the most ridiculous thing that he has ever heard. So here we have a situation where our county administrator has no idea how much money has been spent to date on the Port Citrus project, which could well be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the spending just keeps going on. Isnt it time to stop this frivolous spending on something that just doesnt make sense, or work?Winston Perry Homosassa Business as usualRecently, the Board of County Commissioners voted to accept an application to excavate a large plot of land. Protective setbacks, i.e. distances from neighboring property (including an historic cemetery), were substantially wiped out by the BOCC in 2008. One of the perpetrators of the latest outrage was carrying on about how much money could be made by mining the entire property. His numbers were based on destruction in excess of the land area designated in the application. When Commissioner Adams questioned his numbers, the man admitted what the owners intended to do and what was contained in the application was unrelated. In short, the application was, how do they put it in Parliament? Economical of the Truth. Whereupon the commissioners by a vote of three to two cheerfully agreed that just because the application was deceptive was no reason not to approve it, and approved it. In the past few months, the county government collaborated with developers who have been trying to pave the wetlands on Halls River for more than a decade. The original proposal in the 1990s was to put in a bunch of condos with boat slips. This was approved by county commissioners but shot down in court as a danger to manatees. Various proposals followed. The commissioners generally favored anything that might improve the tax base, however damaging to the environment. At the same time, they have largely wiped out the tax base applicable to the Walmart Invasion. Local residents had challenged the Halls River effort and asked that the county inform them if it was resurrected. The developers submitted a changed plan for ecological destruction. The residents were not notified. The county did not provide notification. I attended a court hearing in which the perpetrators sole argument was we posted it, you didnt catch it, so regardless of the evils of the plan we are home free! Subsequently, the courts upheld the perpetrators. Unfortunately, none of us had been searching the legal notices. On other fronts, Citrus Memorial hospital is heading for sale. Presumably if sold, it will no longer be the subject of endless and expensive legal struggles between the Foundation, which runs the place, and the Board of Trustees, which tries unsuccessfully to keep them in line. A recent article in the AARP Bulletin reported that in spite of all the hype about the economies and efficiencies of hospital sales and mergers, the only absolutely consistent result is higher costs to the patients. We can count on that absolutely. Fans of the elite plutocracy can take some satisfaction that HCA is in the running. HCA, of course, was the front runner in the Medicare fraud sweepstakes. I understand that HCA is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Bain Capital. But we can take comfort in the fact that the water district has decided to work on cleaning up Kings Bay and Crystal River generally. In the past, on the advice of their elite scientific advisers, they were touting the reduction of flow in the Chassahowitzka by 9 feet, or more than the depth of the river in many places. And they previously improved Crystal River by donating the flow of a local spring to a bottling company in Ocala. If you give away the farm to wealthy entrepreneurs, they will create jobs (mostly in Communist China) and stimulate the economy (or at least the value of their stock). Unfortunately, the recent adventures of Progress/Duke suggest that no matter how much corporate welfare you give them, they wont pay their taxes or produce either energy or jobs.Pat Condray Ozello ConvenienceThe trouble with the Ten Commandments is people only obey the ones they find convenient.Who pays fire tax?In regard to the fire tax, will people in mobile home parks pay the tax or will it be put on the park owners tab and they, in turn, raise our lot rents?

Associated PressCAIRO Egyptian soldiers and police clashed with Islamists protesting the militarys ouster of the president in bloodshed that left at least 51 protesters and three members of the security forces dead, officials and witnesses said, and plunged the divided country deeper into crisis with calls by the Muslim Brotherhoods political party for all-out rebellion against the army. The carnage outside the Republican Guard building in Cairo where toppled President Mohammed Morsi was first held last week marked the single biggest death toll since massive protests forced Morsis government from power and brought in an interim civilian administration. Even before all the bodies were counted, there were conflicting accounts on how the violence began. The pro-Morsi protesters said the troops attacked their encampment without provocation just after they had performed dawn prayers. The military said it came under a heavy assault first by gunmen who killed an army officer and two policemen, though its account of the events left many questions unanswered. Witnesses from outside the protest camp said troops appeared to be moving to clear the days-old sit-in and were firing tear gas when gunfire erupted. One said she believed the fire came from the protesters side, though others could not tell. Whatever the spark, clashes went on for three hours, with protesters hurling stones and molotov cocktails from rooftops and gunshots ringing out. Nearby clinics run by Brotherhood supporters were swamped by wounded protesters, some with gaping, bleeding wounds. More than 400 were wounded in the mayhem, officials said. Files from Navy SEAL raid on bin Laden to CIA Associated PressWASHINGTON The top U.S. special operations commander, Adm. William McRaven, ordered military files about the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Ladens hideout to be purged from Defense Department computers and sent to the CIA, where they could be more easily shielded from ever being made public. The secret move, described briefly in a draft report by the Pentagons inspector general, set off no alarms within the Obama administration even though it appears to have sidestepped federal rules and perhaps also the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. An acknowledgement by Adm. William McRaven of his actions was quietly removed from the final version of an inspector generals report published weeks ago. A spokesman for the admiral declined to comment. The CIA, noting that the bin Laden mission was overseen by then-CIA Director Leon Panetta before he became defense secretary, said that the SEALs were effectively assigned to work temporarily for the CIA, which has presidential authority to conduct covert operations. Documents related to the raid were handled in a manner consistent with the fact that the operation was conducted under the direction of the CIA director, agency spokesman Preston Golson said in an emailed statement. Records of a CIA operation such as the (bin Laden) raid, which were created during the conduct of the operation by persons acting under the authority of the CIA Director, are CIA records. Golson said it is absolutely false that records were moved to the CIA to avoid the legal requirements of the Freedom of Information Act. The records transfer was part of an effort by McRaven to protect the names of the personnel involved in the raid, according to the inspector generals draft report. But secretly moving the records allowed the Pentagon to tell The Associated Press that it couldnt find any documents inside the Defense Department that AP had requested more than two years ago, and would represent a new strategy for the U.S. government to shield even its most sensitive activities from public scrutiny.

Family killed in Alaska crash was vacationing ANCHORAGE, Alaska A family of five from South Carolina are among the victims in an Alaska plane crash that left 10 dead. The Antonakos family usually vacationed together in Myrtle Beach, S.C., each summer, but the father of Kimberly Antonakos said his daughter and her family decided to travel to Alaska from their home in Greenville, S.C., for 10 days this year instead. H. Wayne Clayton said his son-in-law Melet Antonakos sold computer software to hospitals and doctors offices, while Kimberly shuffled the three children to their many activities. The children were 16-year-old Olivia, 14-yearold Mills and 11-year-old Anastacia. Investigators have begun their probe into the crash of a de Havilland DHC3 Otter that went down shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday at the airport in Soldotna, about 75 miles southwest of Anchorage. Ex-Gov. Spitzer eying NYC comptrollerALBANY, N.Y. A person close to former Gov. Eliot Spitzer said he is planning a return to political life with a run for New York City comptroller. Spitzer, a Democrat, stepped down from the governors office in 2008 over a prostitution scandal. Spitzer has spoken in the past about the potential for the comptrollers job to look into corporate misdeeds. That would be similar to what he did as the states attorney general. Spitzer said he hoped city voters would give him a chance. Im hopeful there will be forgiveness, I am asking for it, the Democrat said.NY nun with gambling problem gets jail for theftALBION, N.Y. A Roman Catholic nun has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for stealing nearly $130,000 from two western New York parishes to support a gambling addiction. Sister Mary Anne Rapp also was ordered at Mondays sentencing to perform 100 hours of community service and repay $128,000. Rapp pleaded guilty to grand larceny in Orleans County Court in April. The 68-year-old admitted stealing from St. Marys Church in Holley and St. Marks Church in Kendall from 2006 to 2011. The thefts were discovered during an audit. Investigators have said she stole the money to feed a gambling addiction and spent the money at western New York casinos. The Sisters of St. Francis in Lewiston issued a statement expressing empathy for the two churches and continued support for Rapp. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A14TUESDAY, JULY 9, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Prayer Associated PressA woman sings a hymn Monday at a national day of prayer in Juba, South Sudan.

Husseins half brother dies of cancerBAGHDAD Saddam Husseins half brother, who was facing the gallows for his role as chief of the regimes feared security service and allegedly one of the architects of the insurgency against U.S. and allied forces in Iraq, died of cancer on Monday in a Baghdad hospital, a senior official said. Deputy Justice Minister Busho Ibrahim told The Associated Press that Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan, who had received several death sentences, was transferred to the hospital from prison as his health deteriorated at dawn. His body will be handed over to his family. He was 66. Under Saddam, alHassan served as head of intelligence and security during the 1991 Gulf War.

Under the constitutional declaration by Adly Mansour late Monday, he would create two appointed committees to work out amendments to the Islamistdrafted constitution passed under ousted President Mohammed Morsi. A referendum on the new document would be held within four months. Elections for a new parliament would be held within two months after that, around mid-February. Once the new parliament convenes, it would have a week to set new presidential elections. The declaration came after clashes with security forces early Monday left more than 50 Morsi supporters dead. Both sides exchanged blame over who sparked the bloodshed. Canada train derailment death toll rises to 13LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec Officials in Canada said the death toll in the devastating oil train derailment has reached 13.

Associated PressPresident Barack Obama talks on May 6, 2011, with U.S. Navy Vice Admiral William H. McRaven at Campbell Army Airfield in Fort Campbell, Ky., just days after McRaven led operational control of Navy SEAL Team Sixs successful mission to get Osama bin Laden.

Plane parts found in SF Bay Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Part of the tail section of an Asiana jet that crashed at San Francisco International Airport was found in the bay, and debris from the seawall was carried several hundred feet down the runway, the NTSB said Monday in releasing details that suggest the plane hit the seawall. National Transportation Safety Board chairwoman Deborah Hersman said the lower portion of the planes tail cone was found in rocks inside the seawall. A significant piece of the tail of the aircraft was in the water, and other plane parts were visible at low tide, she said. Hersman said at a news conference that investigators have reviewed airport surveillance video to determine whether an emergency vehicle ran over one of two teenage girls killed in Saturdays crash but have not been able to reach any conclusions. She called the possibility a very serious issue. More than 180 people went to hospitals with injuries. But remarkably, 305 of 307 passengers and crew survived the crash. Investigators said Asiana Airlines Flight 214 was traveling significantly below the target speed during its approach and that the crew tried to abort the landing just before it smashed onto the runway. What they dont yet know is whether the pilots inexperience with the Boeing 777 and at San Franciscos airport played a role. Asiana spokeswoman Lee Hyomin said that Lee Gang-guk, who was at the controls, had nearly 10,000 hours flying other planes but only 43 in the 777, a plane she said he still was getting used to flying. Another pilot on the flight, Lee Jeong-min, had about 12,390 hours of flying experience, including 3,220 hours on the 777, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport in South Korea. Lee was the deputy pilot, tasked with helping Lee Gang-guk get accustomed to the 777, according to Asiana Airlines. The two dead passengers have been identified as students from China who were scheduled to attend summer camp in California with dozens of classmates.

SPORTS BRIEFSRyan Howard needs knee surgery, out 6 to 8 weeksPHILADELPHIA Phillies slugger Ryan Howard needs surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss at least six to eight weeks. Howard, the 2006 NL MVP, went on the disabled list Saturday. An MRI Monday confirmed the tear in his knee. A date for surgery hasnt been set. The three-time All-Star was hitting .266 with 11 homers and 43 RBIs. He was noticeably limping during games before he was shut down.

New York Giants star receiver Victor Cruz has signed a fiveyear contract extension that runs through the 2018 season. Cruz was a restricted free agent with three years in the NFL. Last month, he signed a one-year, $2.879 million tender with the Giants, but a long-term deal was already in the works. The Giants could have matched any offers Cruz received from other teams so he didnt get any. The new deal is worth $43 million, according to media reports. Training camp opens July 26. Cruz skipped all of New York's offseason program. The 26-year-old from Paterson, N.J., was an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts in 2010, but hes become one of the most productive receivers in the NFL. Over the last two seasons, he has 168 receptions for 1,628 yards and 19 touchdowns.Daly withdraws from British Open with elbow injuryJohn Daly has withdrawn from the British Open because he will have elbow surgery that will end his PGA Tour season. Daly said the surgery on his right elbow is scheduled for Thursday. He said doctors have told him he could start rehabilitation in early September and could return to golf in the late fall. Daly said he has been playing with a torn tendon since May. He said he hit a root chipping out of the rough on the 12th hole at The Greenbrier Classic on Thursday. The surgery means Daly will miss the only two majors for which he is eligible the British Open and the PGA Championship because he is a past champion. He is being replaced in the British Open by Stephen Gallacher of Scotland.From wire reports STEPHEN E.

The 40-year-old Colon (12-3) shook off a tough-luck 3-1 defeat in his previous start to win for the ninth time in his last 10 outings. He outdueled Jeff Locke, who had a personal eight-game winning streak snapped. Locke (8-2) lost for the first time since his first start of the season April 10. Colon moved into a tie for second in the majors in victories, and has the second-most wins by a 40-year-old in As history. He allowed seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts. Coco Crisp made a diving catch in left-center to preserve Oaklands lead in the seventh off a hard-hit sinking liner from Andrew McCutchen with two men on and two outs.American League Royals 5, Yankees 1NEW YORK Jeremy Guthrie neatly handled a nemesis and a long rain delay to pitch into the seventh inning, Billy Butler homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Yankees 5-1. All-Star Alex Gordon, David Lough and Johnny Giavotella each had RBI doubles, and Alcides Escobar added a run-scoring triple to help the Royals end a five-game skid against New York. Guthrie (8-6) held the Yankees to just three hits over six innings that included a 59-minute delay for a sun shower-hailstorm in the fourth. Leading 5-1, closer Greg Holland was needed in the ninth when Lyle Overbay walked and Luis Cruz singled to start the inning against Luke Hochevar. Holland gave up a hit to Chris Stewart to load the bases. But Holland struck out Eduardo Nunez, Brett Gardner and Zoilo Almonte to end it for his 21st save.Rangers 8, Orioles 5BALTIMORE Ian Kinsler capped a six-run sixth inning with a basesloaded double, and the Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-5 in a rematch of last years AL wildcard game.

Five Miami relievers combined to retire 24 consecutive Atlanta batters before Reed Johnson walked to start the 14th against Chris Hatcher (0-1). Jason Heyward walked with one out, and Upton's double scored both runners. Gerald Laird hit a two-out, two-run single. Chris Johnson hit an RBI single with the bases loaded, and another run scored when the ball skipped past left fielder Justin Ruggiano for an error. Seven relievers for the two teams combined to retire 30 straight batters from the eighth to the 13th. David Carpenter (2-0) pitched two innings and escaped a jam in the 13th.Phillies 3, Nationals 2PHILADELPHIA John Lannan tossed four-hit ball over eight innings against his former team, Ben Revere had three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 3-2. Lannan (2-3) had four strikeouts in his longest outing in four years. The lefty registered 12 groundouts to beat the team he played for his first six seasons in the majors. Jonathan Papelbon allowed two runs in a shaky ninth to earn his 19th save in 23 tries. Dan Haren (4-10) came off the disabled list and took the loss after missing two weeks because of right shoulder inflammation. Haren allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven. Revere and Jimmy Rollins, the 1-2 hitters in Philadelphias lineup were 5 for 9 with three runs and one RBI.Brewers 4, Reds 3MILWAUKEE Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a potential goahead homer with a spectacular catch in center field in the ninth inning, saving the Milwaukee Brewer 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Jonathan Lucroy homered for the third consecutive game for last-place Milwaukee, which had dropped three of four. Jean Segura had three hits off Homer Bailey in the right-handers first start since his second career no-hitter. But Gomez made the biggest play of the game when he made a perfectly timed jump to grab Vottos drive to center for the final out of the game, sending a charge through the crowd on an otherwise sleepy night at Miller Park. Kyle Lohse (5-6) pitched into the seventh inning for his fourth consecutive winning decision.

PETERSBURG Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, hit in the head by a ball in June, hasnt ruled out pitching again in the next month. Cobb, struck in the right ear by a liner hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15, threw off a mound for the second time since being hurt before Monday nights game against Minnesota. The timeline is, obviously, getting shorter for me and thats exciting, Cobb said. Hopefully early August, maybe end of this month would be a pretty nice expectation. Right now, I am trying to get there as soon as possible. Cobb is scheduled to have another bullpen session Thursday and hopes to face hitters soon after that. Im pushing them to let me do it, Cobb said. Im trying to speed up this process as much as I can now that I feel good. Cobb had his initial mound session last Friday. His first time against hitters will have throwing from behind a protective screen, a regular practice for injured pitchers. It will be one of those situations where Im gradually put into it and Ill be able to handle the situation when it comes, Cobb said. Im extremely anxious to get out there and face hitters. No concern in my mind right now that Ill be worried when I do face them, so Id like to get out there as soon as possible. Cobb said his vertigo symptoms have greatly improved. Thats gotten immeasurably better in the last two days, he said.Orioles Davis highlights Home Run Derby fieldNEW YORK Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis, who leads the majors with 33 homers, will be one of eight participants in the Home Run Derby next Monday night during All-Star festivities at Citi Field. Davis was chosen by American League captain Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees. They will be joined on the AL squad by Detroit Tigers bopper Prince Fielder, who won the event last year and in 2009, and a player yet to be announced. New York Mets star David Wright, the National League captain, selected 20year-old Washington phenom Bryce Harper along with Colorado outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer. Major League Baseball announced the field Monday or at least most of it. Cano won the 2011 Home Run Derby in Arizona.Fan requests Browns players as pallbearersCLEVELAND The Browns are giving a jersey to the family of a fan who asked for six players to serve as pallbearers at his funeral. Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, Ohio, died on July 4 at his home. In his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch Entsminger, a lifelong Browns fan, requested six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time. Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert said Monday that the team contacted Entsmingers widow, Pat, and found out that his favorite player was Hall of Famer Lou Groza. The team will present a Groza No. 76 jersey with Entsmingers name on the back to the family Tuesday Entsmingers obituary also said he wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team.Police: Lawrence Taylors son charged with rapePOWDER SPRINGS, Ga.

Police said one girl accused Taylor of sexually assaulting her July 6, and that another accused him of having consensual sex with her last year. The elder Taylor, 54, was a linebacker for the New York Giants between 1981 and 1993 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999. Taylor was sentenced last year to six years of probation after pleading guilty to charges stemming from sex with an underage prostitute. Taylor, Jr., is being held without bond on statutory rape, aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy charges. Its unclear if he has an attorney.Atletico Madrid signs Villa from BarcelonaMADRID Atletico Madrid has reached a deal with Barcelona to sign Spain striker David Villa. Barcelona said on its website Monday that the deal is worth up to $6.6 million, with $2.7 million due this season. Villa scored 48 goals for Barcelona in 119 games since joining the Spanish giant in 2010, but he was likely to see his playing time diminish with the arrival of Brazil star Neymar. Premier League club Tottenham had reportedly also been trying to sign Villa.Cowboys lineman Josh Brent released from jailDALLAS Dallas Cowboys lineman Josh Brent is out of jail again, but under new conditions that include wearing a drug-detection patch at all times and not driving at all. Brent was freed Sunday morning on bond. Hes charged with intoxication manslaughter in a December car crash that killed Cowboys practice squad player and close friend Jerry Brown. Brent was jailed June 27 after testing positive for marijuana a second time. Prosecutors have filed a motion to have Brents $100,000 bond revoked after the two drug tests.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Co-defendant in Hernandez murder case ordered held Associated PressATTLEBORO, Mass. A man facing an accessory to murder charge in the case involving former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was ordered held without bail on Monday, and a judge ruled that search warrants that had earlier been sealed may be released. Ernest Wallace pleaded not guilty in District Court in Attleboro, Mass. The Miramar man will be held without bail until another hearing on July 22, under an agreement between his attorney and prosecutors. Details of the charge against Wallace accessory to murder after the fact were not released during the brief proceeding. Bristol County District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter declined comment on the specific allegations outside the courthouse, citing the ongoing investigation into the death of Odin Lloyd. Lloyd, a semi-pro football player, was found slain on June 17 at an industrial park in North Attleborough not far from Hernandezs home. The 27-year-old Lloyds relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee and the two men were friends. Prosecutors say Wallace, 41, and another man, Carlos Ortiz, were with Hernandez when they drove with Lloyd to the industrial park. Authorities say Hernandez orchestrated the killing because he was upset at Lloyd for talking to certain people at a nightclub a few days earlier; they have not said who fired the fatal shots. Wallace did not speak during the hearing but mouthed I love you to some people sitting in the courtroom before he was led out. Defense attorney David Meier did not immediately return a message seeking comment. A member of the Lloyd family declined to comment outside the courthouse, saying she would wait until the case was over. Meanwhile, during a separate hearing Monday in the same courthouse, a judge lifted an impoundment order on search warrants related to the case. Motions to unseal the material were filed by The Patriot Ledgerand Taunton Gazettenewspapers and their parent Gatehouse Media, supported by The Associated Press and The Boston Globe. Gregg Miliote, Sutters spokesman, said the judge allowed for their release as of 2 p.m. Tuesday unless there is an appeal. It was not immediately clear whether Hernandezs legal team would mount a challenge. A message left for attorney James Sultan wasnt immediately returned. Sutter had opposed the search warrants release but said outside court his office accepted the ruling. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder and gun charges. His lawyers argue the case against him is circumstantial and say he is eager to clear his name. A judge has denied bail for Hernandez, and he is being held in a Massachusetts jail. Ortiz, who lives in Hernandezs hometown of Bristol, Conn., was arraigned last month on a charge of illegally carrying a firearm on the day of the shooting. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf. Ortiz is due in court Tuesday morning for a so-called dangerousness hearing. Defendants who are deemed by the court to be a danger to the community may be held without bail for 90 days.

Stewart hates the game, likes the results Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Tony Stewart coasted for at least 250 miles at Daytona International Speedway, where he hardly worked up a sweat until the final hour of the race. Its a game he hates to play, dropping to the back of the pack at restrictorplate races to casually circle the track lap after lap. The strategy of waiting until the end of the race to make a frantic, final push goes against his fundamentals of racing. But he couldnt deny the results Saturday night when he found himself in position to challenge Jimmie Johnson for the win. Although he ultimately settled for second, the finish pushed him a whopping six places to 10th in points in the Sprint Cup standings. This is a 195 mph chess match, and the lap that pays is lap 160, Stewart said. A lot is said about guys that lag back like that, but were in the most competitive series in the country, and when youre running in the most competitive series in the country you have to do what you think is in the best interest of you, your car, your team and your situation to get to the end. Part of winning races is knowing to be where at what times. I know some people dont like that and some people dont agree with it, but thats what I think is the best thing to do in the interest of our race team and to ensure at the end of the day when its time to go we have a car thats capable of doing so. Stewart has used that strategy for years at Daytona and Talladega, the two tracks that NASCAR requires the use of horsepower-sapping restrictor plates. The plates control speeds and keep the cars bunched, raising the likelihood of a multicar crash when a driver makes a mistake. Now more and more drivers are simply riding around for the three quarters, choosing to wait until the end to turn it up a notch. It was frustrating to fourth-place finisher Clint Bowyer, who had voiced his boredom with Daytona several times over the weekend. I made a rule with myself at these restrictorplate tracks to be easy. You know, ride around, Bowyer said. Its boring. You want to be up there racing for every lap led. If you get wiped out it doesnt matter who caused it or whose fault it was. If you get wiped out before halfway in one of these restrictor-plate races its your own fault. You knew better than to put yourself in that situation. The final results Saturday showed that riding in the back is the best strategy for making it to the finish line. Johnson, who had the dominant car, led a racehigh 94 laps and felt confident his speed was enough to keep him out front and ahead of trouble. But Stewart, Kevin Harvick, Bowyer and Michael Waltrip all made it inside the top-five but laying back for at least half the race. David Ragan did the same thing to win at Talladega in May. But Stewart is correct in sensing that many fans dont like watching drivers take it easy. They gripe and grumble that theres no point in watching a plate race until the very end because thats when it gets exciting. So what does NASCAR do about this predicament? Series officials cant force drivers to race hard, and there doesnt seem to be any real consequence to laying back. Several years ago when Denny Hamlin was in the thick of the championship race, he lost a tandem partner while racing at the back and fell out of the draft. In danger of going a lap down and ruining his title chances, fellow Toyota driver Waltrip got out of the gas and slid back to rescue Hamlin. And NASCAR cant take the plates off unless it figures a way to slow the cars, which nobody has been able to do at the two biggest and fastest tracks in the series. But as Bowyer grumbled about how much idle time he spent at Daytona, where drivers run just a few laps of practice to tune their cars, then turn one lap on qualifying day, then sit and wait for the race to take it easy until the end, it became apparent the whole system is broken. NASCAR will never cut races from 500 or 400 miles to a 25-lap shootout, but thats basically what theyve become. Everybody sat around and waited three days to watch the final 25 laps of Saturday nights race. At minimum, NASCAR should cut the plate events, excluding the Daytona 500, down to two-day shows for the Sprint Cup Series. No team is using all its practice time, making it pointless for everyone to be at the track all those hours. As for the race itself? Who knows? Theres no incentive to race early, and theres not much NASCAR can do to change that. For now, we know what were going to watch four times a year. Well sit and watch for some wrecks, then wait for it to get crazy at the end. As he left the track with a second-place points on the same night teammates Danica Patrick and Ryan Newman both wrecked, Stewart accepted plate racing for what hes stuck with right now. With these things being as crazy as they are, if you can end up with a top-two, youre pretty happy when you leave here, he said. One out of three isnt bad in the organization. The other two got wadded up pretty good.B4TUESDAY, JULY9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressTony Stewart greets fans July 6 during driver introductions prior to the start of the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. Stewart hates the game. He couldnt hate the results, though, when his conservative approach to Saturday nights race at Daytona helped him gain six spots in the Sprint Cup standings. Murray eyes more Slam titles Associated PressLONDON The first question at the first formal news conference of the first full day of Andy Murrays new life as Wimbledon champion concerned the buzz building in Britain about whether knighthood awaits. Murray sighed and rested his chin on his left hand. I dont really know, he said Monday. I mean, its a nice thing to have, or be offered. I think just because everyones waited for such a long, long time for this thats probably why it would be suggested. But I dont know if it merits that. Everything will always be different moving forward for Murray, who became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years by beating No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in Sundays final. Pictures of Murray adorned the front pages of plenty of newspapers Monday morning, several showing him holding and kissing his gold trophy. Forget about honorifics or headlines or even reaching No. 1. All Murray wants is more Grand Slam championships to go with the two hes got at the moment. Twelve months ago, he dropped to 0-4 in major finals by losing to Roger Federer at the All England Club. Undeterred indeed, more determined than ever Murray regrouped and got better. He has played in the finals of the last four Grand Slam tournaments hes entered (he missed this years French Open with a bad back). After winning the U.S. Open in September for a career-altering breakthrough, he added a second Slam title Sunday at the place he called pretty much the pinnacle of the sport. Add a gold medal at the London Games, and its been quite a year. He had three clear goals win a Grand Slam title, win an Olympic title at home, win Wimbledon and he is now 3 for 3. Murray was asked Monday whether it could be difficult to find other aims to drive him. I hope I dont lose hunger. You know, I think I should be able to use this as motivation. I know what its like losing in a Wimbledon final, and I know what its like winning one. And, he said with a bit of a chuckle, its a lot better winning. So the hard work is worth it. His father sensed a change after the victories at the Olympics and U.S. Open. Theres a bit more of a swagger about him, my son. I noticed that, Willie Murray said Sunday. Hes more confident, I think, and it helped him. Murray, a 26-year-old Scotsman, attended the All England Club champions dinner Sunday night, then woke up after about an hours worth of sleep for the obligatory media appointments. That included posing for photos with both arms wrapped around the trophy while standing alongside the statue of Fred Perry, the British man who won Wimbledon in 1936. Now Murray plans to take some vacation before beginning preparations for playing at Flushing Meadows as the reigning champion at a major tournament for the first time. I just need to make sure I dont get sidetracked by anything. And after the next few days yeah, enjoy it and celebrate and stuff, but go away, rest up and get ready for the U.S. Open, he said. Because Ive never had to defend a Grand Slam before. That will be a new experience for me, and I look forward to that. While Murray still sits at No. 2 in the ATP rankings, behind No. 1 Djokovic, thats just fine. Murray insists he is far more interested in winning extra Grand Slam titles. Its a tough one for me, because right now Ive won two Slams and ... (won) the Olympic gold, and Im nowhere near being No. 1. I dont know exactly why that is, he said. I would rather not get to No. 1 and win more Grand Slams, than never win another Grand Slam and get to No. 1. Id rather try to win more Slams. So far this season, he is 34-5 with four titles, second on tour to Rafael Nadals seven. There is one more Grand Slam tournament remaining in 2013, the U.S. Open, and for the second year in a row, the seasons first three major titles were divided by three men. This year, Djokovic won the Australian Open (beating Murray in the final), Nadal won the French Open, and Murray put his name on the list Sunday. It sets up an intriguing hard-court stretch leading to the U.S. Open, where play begins Aug. 26. As for the long-sought victory on home turf, which the BBC said was watched by more than 17 million people in Britain, Murray said he cant quite be sure what his triumph means to the locals. They love their tennis and revere Wimbledon and had hoped someone could follow in Perrys footsteps. I do really try my best to avoid sort of everything that goes on with playing at Wimbledon, with the media coverage and the TV stuff. I try to avoid it because I just cant get wrapped up in it. And it can be a distraction, he said. But, look, I know how long its been. Its been a long time, theres been a lot of close calls. ... Itll be nice that as a nation, we dont have to look at Wimbledon as being sort of a negative. It can be viewed as a positive, Murray said, before adding: And I just hope its not another 70-odd years again. Associated PressAndy Murray kisses the trophy Sunday after defeating Novak Djokovic in the mens singles final match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London. Marlins Fernandez thrilled to be an All-Star Associated PressMIAMI Miami Marlins rookie right-hander Jose Fernandez phoned his mom one night last week and told her he had been demoted to Double-A. Given his 2.72 ERA at the time, the news sounded like a joke which it was. I told her, Hey, Mom, Im kidding. Im going to the All-Star Game, Fernandez said Monday. She started crying. Maritza Fernandez quickly forgave her sons high jinks, and shell happily accompany him to the game in New York next week. The 20-year-old was selected Saturday as the Marlins representative. He said the trip will be a learning experience, and hell be all ears in the National League clubhouse and dugout. Im going to listen to those guys, he said. Theyre the best in the game. Whatever they say must be good, because theyre the best. I dont want to be the kid who goes to everybody asking questions; thats not the way I am. But Im going to sit there and listen and learn as much as I can. Everything I get out of it is going to be good for my career. The trip also offers a chance to augment his autograph collection. Im bringing some bats, and hopefully I can get some balls, too, and have the whole team sign, he said. It would be pretty amazing. A Cuban defector who came to the United States at age 15, Fernandez ranks among the top three rookies in the majors in ERA (2.83) and strikeouts (99). Hes 5-5 for a team with the worst record in the NL, and in seven starts since June 1 he has an ERA of 1.75. Fernandez is scheduled to make his next start for the Marlins on Saturday. That means he would be available to pitch in the All-Star Game the following Tuesday. In my mind Im thinking Im going to pitch, he said. One pitch, I hope, maybe one out, two outs whatever it is, Im going to try to enjoy it. Fernandez said the All-Star he most looks forward to meeting is David Ortiz of the Red Sox. He hopes to pitch against Ortiz or Robinson Cano of the Yankees. The Marlins are expected to limit Fernandez to 170 innings this year, but if a couple of them come in the AllStar Game, thats fine with manager Mike Redmond. I want to see him pitch, Redmond said. Are you kidding me? A 20-year-old All-Star? I hope they get him in there. It would be great. Hes going to be on cloud nine, thats for sure. What an honor. Jose Fernandez
We all know that exercise helps reduce weight. This in turn helps reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Did you know that it not only reduces the risk of cancer but it also cuts down the risk of dying from cancer? Men who were the most fit at age 50 back in the 1970s were the least likely to develop lung or colon cancer 20 to 25 years later, the study, presented at a meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, or ASCO, found. And among the men who did get lung, colon or prostate cancer, the fitter they were in their early 50s, the less likely they were to die of it. Obviously, you cannot change your genes or age, but you can be more fit. If you commit to it, you can do it. Dr. Susan Lakoski of the Recently, I discussed a lot of new research data that supports a link between obesity and many different types of cancer. As most of you have heard, obesity is a health problem in this country, so severe that many term it to be an epidemic. Now, ever more disturbing data regarding obesity, findings that suggest that obesity is associated with significant increased risks for the development of colorectal adenoma (polyps) and even colorectal cancer in middleaged and older men who are undergoing screening procedures.

Stroke is the fifth highest cause of death in Citrus County and the fourth highest cause of death in the nation. It is the No. 1 cause of adult disability in the U.S. A stroke happens in the brain when a blood vessel carrying oxygen and nutrients is either blocked by a clot (ischemic stroke) or ruptures/bleeds (hemorrhagic stroke). When the part of the brain thats affected cannot get the oxygenated blood it needs, the brain cells die. The effects depend on the location of the clot or rupture and the extent of brain tissue affected. Heres what happens in your body when you have a stroke: If a stroke occurs in the back of the brain, most likely vision is affected. Stroke in the right side of the brain affects the left side of the body, which may manifest by: paralysis on the left side of the body, vision problems and/or memory loss. Stroke in the left side of the brain affects the right side of the body, which may manifest by: paralysis on the right side of the body, speech/language problems, slow, cautious behavioral style and/or memory loss. A stroke that occurs in the brain stem can affect both sides of the body and can leave someone in a locked-in state, leaving a person generally unable to speak or move any part of the body below the neck. Seizures: Sudden episodes of abnormal or erratic electrical activity in the brain, characterized by convulsions and spasms. Aphasia Mistranslation of thoughts into words, a person may know the words but cant get them out, may calls a fork a gleebite or string together a series of sounds such as buddy dun, buddy boo that make no sense to others, may not be able to grasp the word the person wants to use. Apraxia Difficulty with the physical act of speaking when there is no paralysis or weakness of speech muscles (verbal apraxia); physical inability to puff cheeks, blow a kiss, open the mouth wide, etc. (oral apraxia). Paralysis The inability to voluntarily move limbs and/or extremities, may occur. Hemiparesis A movement impairment due to weakness or inability to move one side of the body. Spasticity A form of paralysis that causes muscles to be tight and stiff. Foot drop The inability or extreme difficulty raising the top of the foot. Stroke may produce some, all or none of the following: forgetfulness, carelessness, irritability, confusion, anxiety, anger, depression or reflex crying.Warning signs of a strokeStatistical informationRisk factorsSee page C2 Feature content by Nancy Kennedy / Chronicle Information compiled from American Stroke Association, Mayo Clinic Fitness combats cancer Colorectal cancer tied to obesity 000F8UC
Nowadays we spend more time in our home. We have personal electronic devices that keep us occupied. We now can get movies directly into the house and weather extremes, be it cold or hot, keep us in the nicely controlled temperature environments of our home more so than ever. This could put us at some risk, particularly if you suffer from allergies or asthma. Asthma and allergies can be triggered from many things including household odors, pollens, viruses, dust, mold, bacteria, dust mites and insect droppings from cockroaches and if we have pets; pet dander. Then there are volatile organic compounds which basically are chemicals in carpeting, wood furniture finishes, paint, fabric of our furniture and maybe even coatings to prevent spotting. We are exposed to quite a bit of these products in our daily lives. The first thing that comes to mind is to do some cleaning. That does help to an extent but it can be counterproductive. Let me give you an example; If you are doing some basic cleaning with a dry cloth, you are just moving dust around and sending all these things I mentioned flying into the air to be inhaled, so you could actually be creating more of a problem as opposed to helping a problem. If you are vacuuming and you use an old type of vacuum cleaner that is leaky and does not have the proper filters and bags to prevent these particles from being put out in the air as quickly as they are vacuumed up, you could be making things worse. When using products that have harsh chemicals in them, strong odors can be a problem. If you have pets, pet dander, depending on how many pets you have can be an issue. In Florida, we have a lot of problems with cockroach and cockroach droppings but you have to be careful; sometimes the pesticides do more harm than inhaling the droppings from the cockroaches. Bedding is a big problem. Many of us have favorite comfortable mattresses and soft pillows that we have had for years. These are areas where dust and dust mites live and as you are in intimate contact with them for six to eight hours out of the day, that could cause a problem as well. Mold is common in Florida because we have such a humid state. For the most part, everybody has central air conditioning which helps reduce mold growth a great deal. Ideally, you should keep the humidity below 50 percent. That means regular service and cleaning and replacement of filters is recommended to get the best benefit from your central air conditioning system. So, where do you start? Well, maybe a non-ozone producing air filter might be a good idea. Get an approved vacuum cleaner that will trap things. Dust your house with a moist cloth or some of these new products that trap the dust. And, make sure your cleaning products are not so harsh. If you have a pet cat or dog, it does not matter bathe the pet frequently to knock down the dander and clean his or her bedding frequently. Dust and dust mite barriers and covers are available for mattresses and pillows and are a great idea, and washing your bedding in hot water, above 130 degrees is necessary to kill dust and dust mites and their eggs. Dont wait until the last minute and service your air conditioner. Make sure it is running at peak performance. Not only will it help your health, it will also cut down on your electric bill. Replace the filters. It might cost you a little bit, but it is worth having good health and not being sick and missing out on some of the wonderful things that we can do in this beautiful state that we live in. There are some great tips online, for example, to mix your own cleaning solutions using nontoxic household products such as vinegar and water. Here is another great tip contact the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America. It has been around for about 60 years and it has done a great job of educating patients about asthma and allergies.

Journal of Clinical Oncology. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health in Rockville, Md. prospectively evaluated the association between baseline body mass index (BMI) and risks for incidence of distal adenoma, recurrence of adenoma, and incidence of colorectal cancer. As I stated last week, this is a prospective study, one that is started and follows the participants in the trial versus a retrospective trial that asks people about their habits and such over the past decades. Among men and women age 55 to 74 years who were screened with flexible sigmoidoscopy as part of the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial, 1,213 cases of incident distal adenoma, 752 cases of recurrent adenoma and 966 cases of incident colorectal cancer were detected. The researchers found that the risks of an adenoma, or polyp, and the incidence of colorectal cancer were significantly higher in obese men (BMI, 30 kg/m) compared with normal-weight men (BMI, 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m). There was also a trend to having more polyps in obese men. No significant associations were found between obesity and either colorectal adenoma (incident or recurrent) or incident colorectal cancer in women. This is important data from a very large prospective study suggesting that obesity is important throughout the natural history of colorectal cancer, at least in men, and colorectal cancer prevention efforts should encourage the achievement and maintenance of a healthy body weight in addition to regular screenings.Dr. C.

Dr. Kenneth Cooper, who coined the word aerobics, founded the research institute in 1970. The men all took fitness tests on their first visits to the institute, and the institute later acquired their medical records. Their fitness was measured by metabolic equivalent of task, or MET. One MET is sitting on the couch. On a treadmill test that involves making someone walk briskly on an incline, the average middle-aged person, she said, can get up to about 9 METs, while athletes can achieve up to 15 METs and elite triathletes can get to about 20 METs. During the next 20 to 25 years, 2,332 of the men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, 276 with colon cancer and 277 with lung cancer. And 347 of the men died of cancer while 159 died of heart disease. All men were divided into five groups based on their fitness at that first visit, when they were around 50 years old. Those who were the most fit were 68 percent less likely to develop lung cancer and 38 percent less likely to develop colon cancer 20 years later. And if the men did develop cancer, those who were the most fit were significantly less likely to die of any of the three cancers. Every increase in fitness as measured by MET lowered the risk of dying from cancer by 14 percent and from heart disease by 23 percent. This had very little or nothing to do with obesity. Dr. Lakoski works patients to the point of exhaustion, and measures how long it takes to get there. If I can put you on a treadmill and say, You went this many minutes and you burned this many METs and that is associated with X reduction in cancer risk and cardiovascular risk thats very meaningful, she said. Then I can say you need to do this much exercise training to get this fit. People can get their heads around it. It is a personalized prescription. In short, increase your exercise as much as possible and that makes you live longer and better.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

BENNETTContinued from Page C1 GANDHIContinued from Page C1 Fixing up seniors homes as they age LAURANNEERGAARD AP Medical WriterBALTIMORE Alberta Hough struggles to feed herself a snack, her arms shaking badly from Parkinsons disease. Days earlier, the 84-year-old fell while eating, sliding off her kitchen chair. The rest of Houghs day isnt much easier to navigate. She wobbles into a bathtub with no grab bar. Her feet catch on damaged floor tiles. Part of the banister she needs to steady herself on the stairs has pulled out of the wall. At the back door, a rickety wooden ramp no longer supports the scooter that helps her get around. The environment in which you live can be as disabling as a disease, and too often, older Americans wind up in a nursing home not because theyre super-sick but because they cant get through their days safely at home. Now a major research project will bring handymen, occupational therapists and nurses into the homes of 800 low-income seniors in Baltimore to test if some inexpensive fix-ups and strategies for daily living can keep them independent longer, and save millions in taxpayer dollars spent on nursing home care. Very small changes can make a big difference, said Sarah Szanton, a Johns Hopkins University associate nursing professor who leads the project. Were not saying, Whats your blood pressure? Were focusing on function: What do they want to do? Losing independence is a leading fear as people age. But a recent poll shows that too few comprehend the changes in lifestyle needed to offset the chronic illnesses and gradual slowdown that hit just about everyone in the 70s, 80s and beyond. Asked about their choice of living situation when theyre older, Americans 40 and over say their top priorities are a one-level home with no stairs, thats close to their children and medical care, according to the poll by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Chances are, that wont be enough. For Hough, No. 1 is feeding herself without everything tumbling off the fork. Im shaking all the time, she quietly told Hopkins occupational therapist Allyson Evelyn-Gustave. Houghs other priority is not falling, and stairs are only one of her homes hazards. To Hopkins Szanton, bridging the gap between what older adults are able to do and what their homes allow them to do is key to maintaining independence. The Capable study aims to prove how. During 10 home visits over four months, the Hopkins team is tailoring interventions including about $1,100 in home repairs or modifications provided for free to help low-income seniors who are having trouble caring for themselves. Drills buzzed in Houghs house as carpenters installed a new banister and added grab bars and a raised toilet seat in the bathroom. They replaced patches of flooring to prevent trips and prepared to tackle the ramp. As for eating, Evelyn-Gustave recommended a little-known tool: utensils and cups that are specially weighted to counter Houghs tremors. Itll be easier for you to hold, she promised. The set of utensils costs only about $20, one of the affordable tips the study is generating. Houghs daughter had thought the only solution was an aide to feed her mother, which the older woman hates.

Q:I read you articles in theChronicleand have a question. I think I am being scammed by my dentist. Let me start off with some history. I am a 58-year-old male who moved to Citrus County 12 years ago from Massachusetts. I consider myself lucky in the fact that I have, what I consider, very good teeth. I have all my teeth, including my wisdom teeth, and cant remember the last time I had a cavity. I have no sensitivity and can even hold an ice cube between my teeth with no discomfort. My only issue is some recession at the gum line probably caused by using a hard toothbrush and brushing incorrectly when I was younger. I floss daily, brush with a Sonicare twice daily and also use a Waterpik twice daily. Before moving to Florida, I saw the dentist twice a year for a cleaning and X-rays when needed. I have had a dental plan ... since 1993, (and go to the only local provider that accepts my plan). Here is my issue: When I go for my cleanings, they want me to have them every three months along with a treatment of fluoride. I refuse both. During my cleaning, the hygienist keeps talking about the pockets in my gums. After the cleaning, she measures the depth of the pockets with the help of an assistant. The assistant then polishes my teeth and does an antibacterial irrigation flush at a cost of $40. In my last visit, I heard the two hygienists whispering and then the assistant came back with a recommendation that I get Arestin treatment in three areas. This normally costs $90 for each area, but with my insurance it would only be $60 each. I refused this. I had this done in one area last year and on my next visit the hygienist remarked how it had helped. This is now one of the areas they want to treat again. My sister has similar gum problems and has never been told she needs an antibacterial treatment of fluoride. We live in an overly antibacterial treated world, and I dont understand why I should need the treatments my dentists office suggests. They make me feel as if all my teeth will fall out if I dont get these treatments. The way the hygienist sells the treatments, I think shes on commission. I would appreciate your input on this. A: Thanks for your question. I will do my best to address your concerns. First, let me say that there are many people who fit the situation you described before you mentioned Here is my issue. As you know, I cannot make a diagnosis with out seeing you for and examination that includes a review of your X-rays. Cleanings every three months is a good idea if you build up a lot of plaque and calculus. Based on your description of home care, I would assume you have a pretty good handle on home care though there are people who simply build up plaque regardless of what they do at home. As for the fluoride treatment I have always felt that the use of fluoride at home by the patient on a daily basis is superior to a single use in the office. I recommend a stannous fluoride prescription rinse for home use. On the other hand, you may be referring to a fluoride varnish, in which case the ideal time for its use is after a hygiene appointment. With the gum recession you have, the use of a fluoride varnish is a great idea. This product far supersedes any fluoride application we have had in the past for sodium fluoride. Lets talk about the pockets. If you have any pockets greater than 4 mm, you have some cause for concern. The product, Arestin, that you mentioned was designed for use in 5 and 6 mm pockets after root planing and scaling or a hygiene visit. It happens to be a great product that, when used properly, can yield great results. There are times the product can be used multiple times in the same location. However, I usually have a discussion with the patient about why I am recommending its use and why it may be needed again in the future. It is important for me to be sure the patient is totally informed. You also mentioned the use of an antibacterial flush. This, too, I feel can be replaced by the regular use of prescriptions at home. I am a true believer in getting the most bang for your buck, as my father would say. I just think the regular use of the right product at home for a similar investment sometimes beats the use of a product in the office for only one time. Please understand that this is simply my opinion, and I do not know which specific products you are referring to. Your last paragraph is great. I, too, feel that antibiotics can be over used at times. It is the prudent practitioner who knows when and when not to use them. The best point you made was that you do not understand why you need the treatments your dentist suggests. It is so important that you do understand all of the issues and why specific recommendations are being made. The other thing I noticed throughout your question is you never mentioned the dentist talking with you. It is important that you get the opportunity to review these issues with your dentist. Please remember that your assistant and hygienist can be great assets to your dental care. However, it is the dentists responsibility to make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment. This is not to say that your assistant or hygienist cannot observe something and make some suggestions, but the ultimate diagnosis and treatment plan needs to come from your dentist.

Traffic accidents and accidental drug overdoses are the leading causes of death for teens in the United States. For each of these deaths, there are countless more close calls and visits to emergency rooms every day. Many needless tragedies could be prevented if teens understood the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse and received the help they need. In 2012, almost onefourth of high school students surveyed by The Partnership at Drugfree. org said they had abused prescription drugs. Onefifth of these had their first experience with drugs before the age of 14. The survey found that many students, and even some of their families, were not aware of the dangers of prescription drug abuse. It is never too early to start talking to your children about drug and alcohol abuse. Young people are particularly vulnerable to drug and alcohol abuse. In school, they associate with hundreds of peers, more than at any other time in their lives, and are easily influenced by their social groups. They are excited about trying new things, and feel a need to assert their independence from their parents. At the same time, they are often experiencing emotional turmoil: pressure to succeed in school and sports, constantly evolving social relationships, mood swings, social anxiety, hormonal changes, and disappointment at not being able to live up to unrealistic expectations. Do not assume that because your child is intelligent, he or she is mature enough to avoid substance abuse. Studies have shown that the human brain is not fully mature until a person is in his or her twenties. In teens, the parts of the brain involved in emotional responses are more active than in adults, while the parts of the brain that control emotional, impulsive responses are not yet mature. In addition, studies suggest the adolescent brain responds differently from the adult brain to the effects of drugs and alcohol. The idea that drinking alcohol is a normal rite of passage to adulthood is a myth. Even one experiment can result in a traffic accident, a violent incident or an unwanted pregnancy. While the motivation for first trying drugs and alcohol is often a desire to experiment, to escape, or to fit in with a social group, a teen may have underlying issues that contribute to abuse and even drug addiction and alcoholism. A teen who is predisposed to addiction or alcoholism can quickly find himself or herself in serious trouble. Young people seem to advance more quickly through the stages of addiction than adults. Substance abuse in teens is often associated with undiagnosed mental illness, early aggressive or disruptive behaviors, depression, ADHD and anxiety. Emotional instability, family problems, or a traumatic experience can trigger substance abuse. If your family has a history of alcoholism or drug abuse, your teen is at risk. Smoking is also a risk factor for substance abuse. Signs that a teen may be abusing drugs or alcohol include: Withdrawing from family and friends. Sudden change in relationships, friends, favorite hangouts and hobbies. Frequent irritability, mood swings, crying or laughing for little or no reason. Disrupted or abnormal sleeping and eating patterns. Deterioration of physical appearance and hygiene. Poor performance in school or at work. Hostility and aggression towards anyone who tries to impose rules. Bloodshot eyes, frequent nosebleeds, uncharacteristic lethargy or hyperactivity. Unusual smells on the breath or clothing. Presence of drug par aphernalia or pill bottles in the teens room or car. Early intervention is important. If you suspect that your teen is abusing drugs or alcohol, do not hesitate to talk to him or her about it. If you are wrong, your child will forgive you. Your pediatrician, family physician, or a trained professional can assess the extent of your teens problem and direct you to appropriate treatment, such as counseling, medication for an underlying condition, or a rehabilitation program. Know who your childs friends are and get to know their parents. Do not allow easy access to prescription drugs or alcohol in your home. Of the high school students who reported abusing prescription drugs, more than 70 percent had obtained them from family or friends. Even if your teen never drinks or takes drugs, friends might. You could save a life if you teach your child: Never get into a car driven by someone who has been drinking or taking drugs of any kind. Tell an adult if someone is vomiting, appears disoriented or unresponsive, or has a seizure. Get medical assistance immediately for anyone who is unconscious. Do not wait for them to sleep it off. Mixing drugs and alcohol can be fatal. Taking more than one prescription pill of any kind can lead to an overdose. Binge drinking and drinking games can result in alcohol poisoning. No one should consume more than one drink per hour. Tell your parent if a friend is regularly drinking, experimenting with prescription drugs, or engaging in other dangerous activities.

Urologists use several medications in the management of overactive bladder symptoms. The term overactive bladder is used to refer to urinary urge (the sudden strong urge to urinate that may be difficult to control), urge incontinence, urinary frequency and night time frequency. The most commonly used medications are anticholinergic drugs, which mean these medications block the effects of acetylcholine which acts as a transmitter of information between nerve cells and the bladder muscle. These medicines reduce the contractions of the bladder smooth muscle and allow the bladder to relax, reducing the episodes of urge incontinence or other symptoms of overactive bladder. Anticholinergic medications have been in use for several decades but have several possible side effects that are often the limiting factor in their use for many patients. The most common include dry mouth, constipation and mild drowsiness. Some may notice vision problems. Newer generation of anticholinergic medications have been very effective for many patients and urologists still rely on these medications to treat the majority of their patients with overactive bladder. Patients who fail to respond to such medications or who have unacceptable side effects have been offered the sacral nerve stimulation therapy that involves the placement of a small device near the tail bone to control the nerves to the bladder. Recently, the FDA approved a new medication that acts on the bladder by a totally different mechanism. Mirabegron (trade name Myrbetriq) acts by stimulating the beta-3 receptors of the bladder, thereby relaxing the smooth muscle. The results of several studies on patients with overactive bladder have been encouraging. Three 12-week studies have shown the medication is effective. However, it may take several weeks before patients experience the beneficial results. Since the mech an ism of action is entirely different, we do not see the same side effects as with the other medications. The most common side effects reported were increase in blood pressure, urinary retention in patients with bladder outflow obstruction, common cold symptoms, headache and interaction with a few medications. Patients with pre-existing blood pressure and prostate enlargement will need closer monitoring. It has been estimated that 33 million Americans suffer from overactive bladder and 30 percent of men and 40 percent of women experience such symptoms. The addition of a new medication to the armamentarium against overactive bladder is welcome news for patients and physicians alike. Udaya Kumar. M.D., FRCS Urol, Dip.

Plantar fasciitis is a relatively common cause of heel pain in the orthopedic and podiatric communities. Plantar fasciitis is often called and misrepresented as heel spur syndrome and the spur or enthesis visualized on radiographs is blamed as the cause of the condition. The enthesis or spur in truth is not the cause of the problem; however, it is a radiographic indication that there is traction or pulling force on the bone in that location. That is all it indicates. Spurs or entheses are only a radiographic sign that can support the diagnosis of fasciitis combined with the appropriate history and physical findings. Pain in the heel region when first arising after a period of inactivity is a classic description by a patient when obtaining a history of their complaint. The complaint indicates that the fascia has become inflamed mechanically. The inflammation is usually perpetuated by continued activity as the irritated fascia is aggravated before it can completely heal by repetitive rounds of rest, such as sleeping at night, and normal daily activity. There are many potential reasons why a person may succumb to fascitis, but a persons inherited physiologic makeup and their activity can be contributing factors. There is no cure all or simple quick fix for plantar fasciitis. Patients who receive an injection or a prescription for antiinflammatories and are rendered pain free in short order are simply not the norm regardless of hearsay. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the fascia due to mechanical issues, thus the mechanical issues should not be ignored, and just treated with medication in my opinion. There are many treatments for fascitis, but today I wanted to discuss one specific treatment that is night splinting. Equinus is the term used to describe the relationship of the foot to the leg at rest. Youll notice that when we are at rest, the ankle and foot bend down with respect to the leg. This resting position exacerbates the conditions that lead to plantar fascitis. Equinus exercises are a mainstay of treatment for plantar fascitis. Home stretching and physical therapy offer relief for the equines condition, but sleeping in this toe down position at night can negate therapy and exercises at times and certainly diminishes the effectiveness of therapy. A night splint can help this issue. A night splint is a cushioned thermoplastic device that looks almost like the back half of a leg cast. It runs from beneath the ball of the foot to just behind the knee. It has straps to secure it to the leg and foot. It can be adjusted to flex the foot towards the front of the leg producing a stretch of the Achilles tendon, calf muscle, and plantar fascia. So it prevents these tissues from contracting overnight. The night splint thus provides two benefits for plantar fascitis, or Achilles tendonitis for the matter. There are different versions of night splints that fit on the front of the leg or are made of fabric, but I feel these hybrids do not work well at all. Studies in the orthopedic literature place effectiveness of night splinting for fascitis alone at approximately a 70 percent success rate. I believe the studies and feel night splinting is a safe and effective method of treating plantar fascitis or Achilles tendonitis. There are few if any potential side effects of using a night splint. However, there are real world issues with night splints especially that of non-compliance. I always make patients aware of night splinting as a possible treatment option for plantar fascitis and its benefits. I also make patients fully aware that, unfortunately, very few patients actually use night splints. Night splints can be uncomfortable and should be worn for many hours (not minutes or an hour), such as when sleeping at night, in order to be effective. Patients often complain they cant sleep in night splints as they are too confining or uncomfortable. Patients have complained the splints cause cramping or numbness in the toes, too much heat, slide and wont stay in place, and are incompatible with frequent trips to the bathroom during the night. I have found that if there is a possible excuse to not use a night splint, most patients find a reason they feel is valid. In my practice, I have been giving patients interested in night splints information on the splint and having them purchase it on their own if they choose to make the commitment to wearing it. I find the Ossur night splint found at Orthotics and Beyond (orthoticsand beyond.com) to be the best and most cost effective night splint on the market. I have no financial interest in Ossur or the website. It is simply a good night splint in my opinion and experience. So night splint is one valuable option in treating plantar fasciitis which can be considered especially in recalcitrant cases.David B. Raynor. DPM, is a podiatrist in Inverness.

It was such a great way to raise funds for its members mission trip to Minot, N.D., for flood cleanup and rebuilding efforts. It is the second year for Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church to help. This year, the team of volunteers will include members of St. Annes Episcopal Church as well. The seven-day mission is from July 20 to July 27. The church fellowship hall was transformed into the mysterious Baldini Restaurant Mystery Dinner Theater with typical Italian dcor, including paintings by Agda Hart, director of the play. The chicken piccata dinner with angel hair pasta, green beans almandine, Italian salad, garlic bread and Baldinis Delight dessert, the strains of romantic Italian music throughout the evening, the mysterious cast serving us our meal, made for a most delightful, fun-filled evening. The candlelit room accommodated eight Italian-named tables. I was seated at the Milan table. Others were Rome, Venice, Florence, Naples, Genoa, Siena and Turin tables. We were the investigators. During the dinner, we received two multi-colored sets of clues which we shared with the other tables freely. Cristian Baldini, the restaurant owner, was superbly played by Kevin Hart. Ever the consummate boss, he treated his staff as family. He perfected the typical male Italian persona with much exuberance. Luigi Savini, the maitre d, was played by handsome George Duplain. He is in love with waitress Nadia, played by Sue Howard. Although it is well known that Cristian despises what the Mafia has done to his country and has done his best to stay clear of its influence, Luigi works for the Mafia, which has been using the restaurant to smuggle jewels kept in the kitchen and passed on, concealed within meals, to other agents. Nadia Addario, a waitress played by Sue Howard, local Key Training Center Imagination Workshop instructor, exuded charm and friendliness and her love for Luigi was evident. Unknown to the restaurant staff except Luigi, she is an undercover police operative attempting to get information on the Mafia through Luigi. On one of her many trips into the kitchen, she stabbed Manuel the chef, a suspected traitor, and during the enquiry, she poisoned Daniela, a true Italian beauty, a Mafia assassin working undercover to investigate the disappearance of certain gems within the restaurant and to seek out a suspected police informer. Anna Maria Renzetti, a darkhaired waitress played by Sylvia Giffune, perfected her fainting scene and as an emotional Italian, her loud scream got the attention of the diners, announcing the murder. Benito Pallino, kitchen porter, was played by Skip Brady. Although typically dark-haired and muscular, his rugged handsomeness does not interest Anna Maria, whom he fell in love with shortly after joining the staff. His efficient attention to the dinner guests was deeply appreciated. Daniele Calasso, played by Teo Hart, embraced the role of a friendly, comforting waitress who is, underneath, a Mafia assassin. Inspector IB Cluelessi, the detective sent to solve the crime, was played by Father Jim of Shepherd of the Hills. His flamboyant take and authentic portrayal of this role made him an excellent candidate for the local Art Center Theaters upcoming auditions a perfect fit for his retirement coming soon. Bravo! Bravo to the Shepherd of the Hills players for fine food and excellent entertainment.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

C8TUESDAY, JULY9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.J.P. Morgan of banking fame said, A man always has two reasons for doing anything a good reason and the real reason. A bridge player chooses a bid for two reasons to describe his hand as accurately as possible and to reach the right final contract. Of course, they are symbiotic, one helping the other. However, sometimes it isnt obvious what bid to make. Look at the South hand. You open one spade, and partner responds two clubs. What would you rebid? A columnist explained that with 6-4 shape, opener rebids in his six-card suit with a minimum, but shows the side suit when he has extras. That is true only when the four-card suit is a minor. When it is a major, opener always shows it. To rebid two spades here in principle denies four hearts. Now look at the West hand. What would you lead against seven hearts? The writer gave a bizarre auction before discussing the play in seven hearts after West leads a low club. South wins with his queen, then should ruff a spade, cash the heart king, play a heart to his ace, ruff another spade, ruff a club to establish the suit, draw Easts last trump, and claim, the diamond ace being the entry to the club winners. He takes one spade, three hearts, one diamond, five clubs and the three ruffs. But why would West lead a club? Perhaps he hoped that East was void in the suit. But if he had been, he probably would have made a Lightner Slam Double, asking for a lead in the first suit bid by dummy. A diamond lead defeats seven hearts. In general, do not lead suits bid by the opponents.

My husband has two children from his first marriage and a stepdaughter. His first wife had several affairs. I feel it may have been due to his lack of support for her. He was always working and never had time for his wife and kids. We married five years after his divorce. My husband and I are happy, and he is devoted to me. But he continues to work a great deal, and I am often lonely. I know it would help to have my own outside interests and hobbies and to go out with my friends, but I miss the closeness I had with my first husband. We did everything together. The problem now is his kids. We have not spoken to them in nearly three years. When his oldest granddaughter sent us a graduation invitation, I sent her a text thanking her for inviting us. She wrote back, Who is this? I do not recognize the number. That really hurt me. I gave nine years of my life to that little girl, trying to be a good step-grandmother. I wrote her back and said, Once upon a time, you called me Grandmommie. I still love and miss you. I have heard nothing more from her. My husbands children have no respect for their father because he was always gone. I tried to overcome that for many years, but it went sour. What can we do to get these problems corrected? Should we send a graduation gift? Hurting in Oklahoma Dear Oklahoma: First, while your relationship with these children seems distant, lets not mix apples and oranges. Unless your phone number is programmed into this grandchilds phone, your name would not come up when you texted, and she would not have known who was contacting her. You can call the children and grandchildren directly and ask how to warm up the relationship. But we cant promise anything will change unless your husband becomes more involved, and he does not seem inclined. But please send a graduation gift. Its a start. Dear Annie: I am at my wits end. I have tried every angle imaginable to stop an employee from showing her butt crack. I even bought her a long T-shirt. She wore it once and says she cant find it. Am I wrong to think that she should not be allowed to dress this way? She says that I am the only person who has a problem with it, but Im simply the only one willing to speak up. Firing her is not an option. Fairfield, Conn. Dear Fairfield: If there is no consequence for dressing so unprofessionally, there is no reason for her to change her clothes. Dress codes should be enforced. We recommend you talk to whoever is in charge and ask that a dress code be established and consequences spelled out including termination for someone who repeatedly and deliberately refuses to adhere to the requirements of the job. This girl undoubtedly believes her exhibitionism is appealing. But it is actually a source of ogling and amusement at her expense. She should save it for after hours. Dear No Hypocrite in Paducah, Ky., who is addicted to alcohol, criticized family members for being addicted to food. He said, How is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail? There is a HUGE difference. I grew up in a home where both of my parents were alcoholics. Alcohol changes a persons behavior toward others. Food does not. I would much rather have had obese parents than emotionally damaging alcoholics. I wouldnt have needed so many years in therapy.
