Grow, 41, now of Redington Beach, left his car and the child in the Drive Time car dealership parking lot at approximately 9:38 p.m. then went to Diamond Dolls, according to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office. Authorities wouldnt say how Grow knew the girl, according to The Associated Press. He was released on $5,000 bail. The girls mother and grandparents had already removed the uninjured child from the car when deputies arrived. When Grow returned to the car, he reportedly acknowledged leaving the child unattended. Grow played linebacker for the Gators from 1989 to 1993. He went on to play a season each for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Jacksonville Jaguars, in 1994 and 1995 respectively. NEWS BRIEF Monty Grow From wire reports A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Judge Ric Howard put the final nail in the coffin of Timothy F. Gartners 14year run as a criminal. Monday, Howard sentenced Gartner, 28, to life in prison for robbing a dry cleaning business in Crystal River in 2007. The sentence is to run consecutively with other sentences Gartner has already been handed. Gartners sentence was mandatory as per Florida law and caps a series of long sentences he received in other counties. It also brings to a close a crime career Howard said was marked by inadequate sentences. Howard also called Gartner the most dangerous person he has had in his court, including two death penalty cases he had presided over. Gartner has already been sentenced to two life terms in Hernando County and a 30-year sentence in Pasco County for a series of armed robberies he committed after striking in Crystal River, according to co-prosecutor Melissa Pendergrass. Gartner has a long rap sheet, including crimes in Broward and Charlotte counties. Howard said Gartners life of crime began at 14, and his offenses were mainly grand thefts with adjudication withheld. Inadequate, said Howard, and Gartner therefore escalated by committing felonies every year since and also began using firearms in the commission of his crimes. Prosecutor Mike Anello sought enhancement based on Gartners history as a habitual offender and a prison releasee reoffender. The Career criminal gets life for robbery Timothy Gartner See PRISON/ Page A6 ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerOZELLOCarrying 327 pounds around on his 6-foot frame, Ernest Croft recognized he needed to lose weight or fall victim to his deadly disease diabetes. However, Croft a Type 2 diabetic was uneducated about the cause and consequences of his high glucose numbers. A blood glucose test measures the amount of a type of sugar in the blood known as glucose, which originates from carbohydrates. Numbers are considered normal by physicians when they are in the range of 90 to 130. I didnt know that much about diabetes, Croft said. I had a machine to test my blood and I never used it all of these years. Whenever I got it the numbers were so low that I thought, If the numbers are that low it cant be that bad. Kissing diabetes goodbye Local man dedicates himself to better diet, more exercise to combat illness MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleOzello resident Ernest Croft suffers from diabetes. He said in the past two months, he has lost nearly 70 pounds, mainly by watching his diet and staying active. He remains active by working on his four boats used to tow and salvage vessels for Sea Tow. Above, Croft works on solving an oil leak in one of his outboard motors. See DIABETES/ Page A2 Landlords knock fire fee CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCommercial property owners said Monday they find the county governments proposed fee of $60 per unit for fire protection services an unequal tax that could hurt their businesses. Notices were mailed earlier this month about the proposal by the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to add the $60 fee to each residents tax bill to fill a hole left by Duke Energys tax dispute. While the added expense may be difficult for residents, commercial property owners said the fee would hit them in ways the BOCC had not anticipated. It affects us big time, said Chris Ensing, who owns 24 apartments in Crystal River. The only reason were in rentals right now is because of Progress Energy/Duke, Ensing said. That See FEE/ Page A2 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus Memorial Health System has started a campaign hoping the public sees its side of the story, even as the hospital moves closer to a possible sale, lease or merger.

(the closure of the nuclear plant) hurt our business, too. But we dont have the luxury of raising our rents to try to get more money. We have lowered our rents because we have to cater to the local population who cant afford what the Duke people were paying. With the county raising taxes at a time when Ensing sees it necessary to lower rents, they are killing us. Theyre absolutely killing us. House rentals, with higher rates, could better absorb the $60 added expense than apartment rentals, Ensing said. Landlords competitively have been lowering rents, but would have to raise rent by $5 to pay the fire fee. The $5 a month was enough to make a renter choose a cheaper apartment. Cheryl Phillips, owner of a Lecanto mobile home park, said she plans to make her case for fairness before the BOCC. Mobile home parks are taxed on all their platted sites, Phillips said. Although my park has 91 platted sites, I only have 68 homes on it. Phillips would be taxed for all 91 platted sites, including the 23 that are vacant. These home sites are 50 by 100 feet, Phillips said. Meanwhile, my other (vacant) parcels that are 10 acres are being taxed at $3.15 (for fire protection services). My vacant mobile home lots are being taxed at $60 per lot. Matt Canning, owner of an Inverness strip mall, said he would have to pay $60 for each of six units, raising his commercial property tax almost 10 percent. How can they take that money out of the economy? Canning asked. And they did it when a lot of the property owners are up north. To Canning, the fee is another of many he has to pay to different levels of government, such as a monthly fee he has to pay for water testing. He said hed phoned all the county commissioners, but only Commissioner Scott Adams returned his call before press time Monday. Adams told the Chroniclethe fire protection services fee was going to be the deal killer for a lot of renters. Dozens of commercial property owners had contacted him, he said. The renters cant sustain that and the owners cant sustain that, Adams said. Theres going to be more vacant spaces when they cant get their return on investment. Adams said the BOCC should scale back its expenses rather than raise taxes.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com. dollars spent by the CCHB on attorneys fees rather than hospital costs. The foundation, it said, is incredulous that the county hospital board has squandered away such a huge amount of tax money. It also asked residents to help find the right home for Citrus Memorial Health System. The ad guides readers to the hospital website, www. citrusmh.com, where they can read proposals from the four hospital bidders and offer comments about which one might be the best fit for Citrus County. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty said the ads purpose is to educate the community. We want the community to have as clear an understanding as possible about the situation, he said. The ad places much blame on the CCHB for CMHS being in the situation of being sold, leased or merged. Why has this happened? Because the Citrus County Hospital Board and a small politically motivated group of people tried to wrest away control from the legally constituted Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, the dedicated professionals who made it the award-winning facility it is today, the ad stated. Beaty said Monday the ad isnt intended to cast blame, and he said the hospital boards lack of funding has not directly brought about the sale potential. We probably wouldnt be needing to sell, lease or merge as quickly as we are, he said. The trustees have to be held accountable. The larger picture is a small, independent hospital cannot compete with larger chains that can maximize buying and insurance-reimbursement potential, Beaty said. CCHB Chairwoman Debbie Ressler said she was surprised the hospital took out a full-page ad, but otherwise had no issue with the content. The message is pretty much whats out there, she said. Beaty said he hopes the public will read bidders proposals on the hospitals website and offer comments. The foundation board meets at 6 p.m. Monday in Inverness, where they may vote on selecting a bidder. Both the foundation and CCHB must agree on the same bidder for the process to proceed.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. Croft recently realized it was time to become healthy by losing weight with the help of his doctor. Dr. Elihab H. Tawfik is a board-certified internist who manages weight loss and diabetes. Having offices at both Christ Medical Centers Citrus Diabetes Treatment Center in Crystal River and Hernando Diabetes Treatment Center in Spring Hill, Tawfik educates his patients about diabetes while helping them lose weight and live healthier lives. Tawfik describes diabetes as a chronic illness with potentially serious complications including blindness, limb amputation and death. Today, many complications of diabetes are preventable. Physicians can play a key role in preventing and controlling the disease. When I started going to the Christ Medical Center, they had an instructor who gave me classes on diabetes, Croft said. That way you know what you are facing and what can happen. It has been pretty educational. They even have me seeing a foot doctor to keep my feet checked, Croft said. Diabetes affects your feet. I didnt realize it could happen that way. Every month to two months he checks my feet over. Tawfik feels one of the best ways to help control and prevent diabetes is to follow a healthy eating and exercise plan with a physicians supervision. I didnt have someone helping me set goals to lower my numbers before, Croft said. I still see the nurse that does. I didnt really know what I was dealing with before the support. They check you from head to toe and support you, said his wife, Ellen Croft. Diabetes is serious business. You need to be knowledgeable about it. Crofts diet has proven to be life changing. Prior to his physicians diet, his blood glucose numbers were bumping 200. His numbers are in the normal range now and he is down to 263 pounds in two months. He said the moment he started dieting, he saw drastic drops in his glucose numbers. He is proud of his 63pound weight loss and said the physicians diet is the easiest one he has ever followed. However, he has one goal in mind: losing enough weight to be free of diabetic medicine. This is one of Tawfiks goals for all of his patients. We are shooting for weight of 200 pounds in the next two months, Croft said. I feel 100 percent better and can do stuff. We are hoping if I keep up with this healthy pattern that I will hopefully be off of medicine and regulating my diabetes with diet. Because of Tawfiks medical advice, Croft feels his life has been saved and he encourages fellow diabetics to take the same steps toward a healthier life. Losing weight and getting healthy will help make a persons life better, Croft said. They will live longer. If they are overweight, they will find that they will feel better if they get onto the diet bandwagon.

D ON T PUT OFF THIS FREE TEST F IND OUT IF IT IS JUST WAX OR ACTUAL HEARING LOSS 000FITU NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDAS MOST TRUSTED HEARING AID CENTER According to Better Hearing Institute more than 31,500,000 Americans have hearing loss. One-third of individuals between the ages of 65 and 74 suffer from hearing loss. In fact, hearing loss is the third leading chronic disability, following arthritis and high blood pressure. And yet the full impact of hearing loss is often not communicated to the public. Research concerning the link and impact of hearing loss to Alzheimers, depression and brain function has been published in several research journals. Hearing Loss and Alzheimers A research study conducted at the University of Washingtons Department of Medicine looked at 100 cases of Alzheimers disease compared to the general population. The researchers found that 83% of those hospitalized for dementia had hearing loss. More importantly, once fit with hearing aids, 33% were classified with less severe dementia. There is strong evidence that hearing impairment contributes to the progression of cognitive dysfunction in older adults, says Sergei Kochkin, PhD, Better Hearing Institutes Executive Director. Unmanaged hearing loss can interrupt the cognitive processing of spoken language and sound, exhaust cognitive reserve, and lead to social isolation regardless of other coexisting conditions. But when an individual has both Alzheimers and hearing loss, many of the symptoms of hearing loss can interact with those common to Alzheimers, making the disease more difficult than it might be if the hearing loss had been addressed. If a loved one is displaying symptoms of not remembering dates or appointments, withdrawal, personality changes and inappropriate responses to questions, one of the first steps is to have their hearing evaluated. Hearing Loss and Brain Function The term Auditory Deprivation refers to depriving the brain of stimulation with auditory or sound signals. The term has been used for decades to describe the effects of untreated hearing loss on the ability of the brain to understand speech and other sounds. While the ear picks up and transmits the sounds around us, it is the brain that decodes and processes the signals and gives them meaning. When hearing loss is present, the presentation of sound to the brain is decreased. As the brain receives less sound, it forgets what to do with the sound. Studies published by the VA in the early 1990s showed that individuals fit with only one hearing aid had a decreased ability to understand speech on the ear without the hearing instrument. This decrease in the ability to understand speech is the result of auditory deprivation. The average individual waits at least seven years, according to hearing industry statistics, to do anything about their hearing loss. A simple hearing test could preserve the ability of their brain to understand speech, limit their exposure to possible depression and keep them actively, happily engaged in life.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Man faces child porn charges Accused of using library computersA.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterA Dunnellon man was arrested Thursday on a warrant and is facing charges of possession of child pornography. Rodney P. Martin, 46, of N. Janice Avenue, is facing three charges of possession of porn to promote photo/video with sexual content by child, knowingly possessing child porn and sale/rent/ loan/show obscene material to minor. His bond is $12,000. Citrus County Sheriffs Office detectives began investigating Martin after receiving information from the National Centers for Missing and Exploited Children about someone with the Internet handle of wolfgang6216 who had uploaded child pornography. Martin had used one of the public library locations to upload, according to the report. However, it was traced to him, and when he was confronted about his handle on the Internet and whether he uploaded a sexually suggestive photo of a naked prepubescent boy, Martin reportedly would only offer that he probably did, but said he did not remember. Asked if he had other child porn, Martin admitted he had stored some on his cell phones and that he had received the material from others who also collect child porn. He reportedly admitted to trading child porn on the Internet. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe @chronicleonline.com. Rodney Martin Process starts for trail sponsors PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe search for commercial sponsors for seven state trails opened Monday with a teleconference for interested businesses and nonprofit entities. For prices yet to be negotiated, sponsors will be able to place preapproved, specifically worded, sizerestricted signs with their logo at trailheads and access points. This is not advertising, emphasized Samantha Browne of the Office of Greenways and Trails. The purpose is not for someone to come in and put up advertising; it is to sponsor the trailhead or access point. She said it was intended to be nonintrusive, something to benefit both the sponsor and the public. Sponsorship proposals can be for one or more trails and/or select trailheads and access points. Proceeds will be split with 85 percent going for trail management and operation. The rest will go to the Transportation Trust Fund for traffic and bicycle safety education programs. The Department of Environmental Protection will track and manage funds for the sponsored locations. We dont know exactly what we are going to be getting, she said. But, we will make sure its for that trail. The 46-mile Withlacoochee State Trail runs from Citrus Springs to Dade City, with seven designated trailheads. It is the second most utilized trail on the list, after the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail. The others are Blackwater Heritage Trail, Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail, Nature Coast State Trail, General James A. Van Fleet State Trail and Palatka-Lake Butler State Trail. Browne said since the signs will be on DEP-managed property and it was not coordinated through local governments, signs cannot intrude on natural and historic settings. According to DEP figures, Withlacoochee attracted 287,635 users in 2011, up from 274,754 users in 2010. I dont like it myself, said Greg Emlinger of Hamptons Edge Trailside Bicycles in Floral City. When Im on the trail I want to get away from billboards and stuff. I dont want it looking like I-75. Potential sponsors have until Aug. 8 to submit proposals.

Town somberly absorbs verdict after Zimmerman trial Associated PressSANFORD Nearly 70 years after Jackie Robinson was run out of town, Sanford is absorbing what some see as another blow to race relations: the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin. Some black residents of this community of almost 50,000 people where the shooting took place say that while relations between black and white have improved over the years, progress has been slow and the Martin case demonstrated that problems persist. James Tillman, who is black, said Saturdays verdict just adds to his mistrust of local authorities, who have been criticized over the years for their handling of other crimes against blacks. Tillman, 47, said city officials try to portray Sanford as a quiet and laid-back town. This town here is one of the worst towns about covering things up, Tillman said, stopping his bike in front of a memorial to the 17-year-old Martin. When you put something in the closet, its going to burst back on you. Sanford, a mostly middle-class suburb of Orlando, about 25 miles away, has reacted somberly and peacefully to the verdict. The city was mostly silent the morning after the verdict, in contrast to the rallies that drew thousands not long after the shooting. Only a few people went past the permanent memorial built in the citys historically black Goldsboro neighborhood to honor the Miami teen. Standing in front of the memorial, Venitta Robinson, the minister at Allen Chapel, said she hopes the black community doesnt dwell on the verdict. Its a little disheartening, but that was the process we go through as far as having a jury, and thats the verdict that they had, and we have to respect that, said Robinson, who is black. We dont necessarily have to like it, but we have to respect it. In just the 17 months since the killing, Sanford has changed: The city, which is about one-third black, now has a black police chief and its first black city manager. Before the shooting, Sanford was best known for its antiques shops and as the southern terminus for Amtraks Autotrain, which carries tourists and their cars between Florida and the Washington area. The police department was heavily criticized for declining to charge Zimmerman at first, and he wasnt arrested until 44 days after the shooting, by order of a special prosecutor. But the distrust between Sanfords city government and its black citizens predates the Martin case by several decades. A large portion of the black community lives in Goldsboro, which was Floridas second city incorporated by AfricanAmericans when it was founded in 1891. Tensions were inflamed when an expanding Sanford annexed Goldsboro in 1911. In 1946, Sanford was the site of the botched start of Jackie Robinsons first steps toward breaking baseballs color barrier. Robinson had been sent to Sanford for his first spring training with the Brooklyn Dodgers minor-league Montreal Royals. Two days after he arrived, he was sent to the Dodgers minorleague team in Daytona Beach after getting death threats from Sanford residents. In 1997, on the 50th anniversary of Robinsons breaking into the majors, then-Sanford Mayor Larry Dale issued a proclamation apologizing for Robinsons treatment. That tension has reemerged in recent years because of several shootings of blacks and an attack on a black homeless man. In 2010 Justin Collison, the 21-year-old son of a white Sanford police lieutenant, was videotaped leaving a bar and punching a homeless man named Sherman Ware in the back of the head, causing serious injuries. Police officers arrived within minutes, looked at the video and spoke to witnesses who said the attack was unprovoked, but they let Collison go after he called his father. After the video became public and spurred protests, Collison was charged almost two months later with battery and disorderly conduct. He struck a plea bargain and was sentenced to probation, anger management and substance abuse counseling but no jail time. In February 2010, Dennis Williams was shot on the front steps of his home while he held his 9-month-old son. Police have never been able to identify a suspect. That same month, a Sanford police investigator shot and killed Nicholas Eugene Scott in his car as officers tried to arrest him in a supermarket parking lot. Prosecutors ruled the shooting justified.

ENTERTAINMENT Fans give Matthews ride to showHERSHEY, Pa. A fan on her way to a Dave Matthews concert in Pennsylvania pulled over to help a stranded bicyclist who turned out to be none other than the singer himself. Emily Kraus and her boyfriend pulled over Saturday to give a ride to a man whose bike had apparently broken down, she told WHP-TV in Harrisburg. They realized it was Matthews, who didnt have a cellphone on him to call for help. They helped him stow his bicycle on their bike rack and he got in their car for the rest of the ride. He invited them to dinner, took them backstage and got them front-row seats. Kraus said she woke up the next morning still amazed at what had happened.Atoms For Peace in dispute with SpotifyNASHVILLE, Tenn. Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich have started a small meaningless rebellion against Spotify, announcing Sunday on Twitter theyre pulling their Atoms For Peace collaboration off the streaming service over royalty payments they said are paltry. The Radiohead frontman and his friend the influential producer-musician initially put Amok up on the service but decided after six months to take the unusual step of pulling it down. Yorke wrote: Make no mistake new artists you discover on #Spotify will no get paid. meanwhile shareholders will shortly being rolling in it. Simples. Streaming payment models have gotten more attention as the mobile-friendly services continue to grow, taking a larger piece of the music marketplace. At a Spotify gathering last month in New York to tout a staffing increase, Ken Parks the companys chief content officer, said the company has already paid $500 million in royalties and was scheduled to reach $1 billion by the end of 2013. The company released a statement Monday morning noting, Much of this money is being invested in nurturing new talent and producing great new music. Were 100% committed to making Spotify the most artist-friendly music service possible and are constantly talking to artists and managers about how Spotify can help build their careers. Yorke and Godrich who said the decision only applies to the Atoms album, Yorkes solo record The Eraser and Godrichs Ultraista project and not the Radiohead catalog said theyre standing up for their fellow musicians. They believe popular artists with large catalogs probably are seeing some return.Jepsen has fun with Rays first-pitch failTORONTO Call me maybe just not to throw out a first pitch. Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen had a good laugh at herself after she spiked the ceremonial first pitch at a Tampa Bay Rays game on Sunday. Jepsen, best known for the catchy Top-40 hit Call Me Maybe, posted a text-message conversation between her and her brother on Twitter that had the hash tag sticktoyourdayjob. She also posted: So apparently I made ESPN with my fail of a pitch. LolDaddy must be so proud. The right-handed Jepsen set up from the rubber, with a catcher 18 feet away. Her pitch barely cleared the mound. When she realized where the ball went, she covered her face, laughed, and raised her hands in mock pride. The video is on YouTube at http://bit.ly/15wzkrs.

Prison Releasee Reoffender Act calls for a mandatory life sentence if a defendant is convicted of one of several felonies, including armed robbery, within three years of being released from prison. To shore up his argument, Anello called Citrus County Sheriffs Office Crime Scene Investigator Dave Cannaday to confirm that fingerprints collected from Gartner matched records of his convictions elsewhere and his recent stint in prison. Anello said Gartner has shown he is not deserving of living free in society because of his criminal conduct. Assistant Public Defender Charity Braddock asked the court to make Gartners sentence run concurrent with the other sentences he already received. But Howard said it is sad that Gartner was allowed time and again to continue terrorizing victims. He said it is unfortunate that at your tender age, we have to clothe and feed you for the rest of your life. According to reports, just before Gartner struck the Crystal River business in 2007, he was seen hanging out all day around the Touch of Quality Cleaners at 130 S.E. U.S. 19 in Crystal River. At around 6:02 p.m., after the last customer had left, Gartner reportedly entered the establishment, displayed a handgun and demanded money. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot. He apparently continued his crime spree in Hernando and Pasco counties. He was arrested later that night in Pasco.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe @chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The bitter standoff between Walmart and Washington, D.C. officials over the citys effort to impose a higher minimum wage on big-box retailers is fueling a wider debate about how far cities should go in trying to raise pay for low-wage workers and whether larger companies should be required to pay more. Walmart, the nations largest private employer, is fuming about a living wage bill approved by the D.C. Council that has an unusual twist it would apply only to certain large retailers, forcing them to pay employees at least $12.50 an hour. Thats nearly 50 percent higher than the citys minimum wage of $8.25 an hour. The measure is being cheered by unions and worker advocates who have long complained about Walmarts wages and working conditions. Opponents call it an unfair tactic that will discourage companies from doing business in the city. Walmart has threatened, if the bill becomes law, to cancel plans for three of the six stores it hopes to build in some of the citys poorest neighborhoods that are sorely in need of economic development. The measure is now before District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray. Some economists say targeting large retailers or other industries that can afford to increase wages may be an effective way to raise pay to even higher levels than a broad-based minimum wage. The districts bill applies to stores of 75,000 square feet or larger and annual corporate revenues of at least $1 billion. A large retailer can more easily absorb a pay hike than a corner store, said Arindrajit Dube, an economics professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a prominent supporter of raising the minimum wage. Large stores are less likely to shut down or cut back on employment in response to such an increase, he said. But Dube cautioned that a targeted hike might make it harder for Walmart and other big-box stores to pass on the wage hike as a price increase since smaller retailers could still keep prices low. The minimum wage in the nations capital already is higher than the federal rate of $7.25 an hour. Other cities and states that have sought to raise the minimum wage above what is required have applied the hike to all businesses. San Jose, Calif., recently raised its minimum from $8 to $10 an hour and San Franciscos rate of $10.55 an hour is the highest in the nation. Still, no other city has singled out certain businesses for higher wage rates. The Chicago City Council tried to pass a similar measure seven years ago, but it was vetoed by then-mayor Richard M. Daley. Opponents have suggested the districts bill may be subject to a legal challenge, but those prospects are uncertain. President Barack Obama has proposed raising the federal minimum to $9 an hour and boosting it annually to keep pace with inflation.

MALCOLMRITTER AP science writerNEW YORK The fearsome bite of a hungry Tyrannosaurus rex left behind new evidence that the famous beast hunted for food and wasnt just a scavenger. Researchers found a part of a T. rex tooth wedged between two tailbones of a duckbill dinosaur unearthed in northwestern South Dakota. The tooth was partially enclosed by regrown bone, indicating the smaller duckbill had escaped from the T. rex and lived for months or years afterward. Since the duckbill was alive and not just a carcass when it met the T. rex, the fossil provides definitive evidence that T. rex hunted live animals, researchers say in Mondays issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The fossil, from around 67 million years ago, indicates the T. rex bit the duckbill from behind and intended to take it for a meal, said David Burnham of the University of Kansas, an author of the report. Its not clear whether there was a chase involved, he said. Experts who didnt participate in the study said there was already ample evidence that T. rex went after live animals as well as scavenging carcasses. It brought a bone-shattering bite and teeth up to a foot long to each task. The new fossil is the first to include a T. rex tooth embedded in the bones of its prey, giving extremely strong physical evidence that the attacker was a tyrannosaur, said Thomas Holtz Jr., of the University of Maryland. Its one other bit of evidence (for hunting) fully consistent with the other data already established from lots and lots of lines of evidence, Holtz said. You might think a T. rex would take down anything in sight, but Jack Horner of Montana State University said it apparently preyed on the weak, the sick and the young instead. It makes sense that T. rex also scavenged, said Kenneth Carpenter, curator of paleontology at the Utah State University East Prehistoric Museum. If theres a free meal, why not? he asked. But decay can make carcasses toxic after a while, he said, and at that point, T. rex is going to have no choice but to hunt.Malcolm Ritter can be followed at www.twitter. com/malcolmritter.

ON THE NET Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: www.pnas.org Dont quit the day job Study: Later retirement may stave off dementiaMARILYNNMARCHIONE AP chief medical writerBOSTONNew research boosts the use it or lose it theory about brainpower and staying mentally sharp. People who delay retirement have less risk of developing Alzheimers disease or other types of dementia, a study of nearly half a million people in France found. Its by far the largest study to look at this, and researchers say the conclusion makes sense. Working tends to keep people physically active, socially connected and mentally challenged all things known to help prevent mental decline. For each additional year of work, the risk of getting dementia is reduced by 3.2 percent, said Carole Dufouil, a scientist at INSERM, the French governments health research agency. She led the study and gave results Monday at the Alzheimers Association International Conference in Boston. About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimers is the most common type. In the U.S., about 5 million have Alzheimers 1 in 9 people age 65 and older. What causes the mind-robbing disease isnt known, and there is no cure or any treatments that slow its progression. France has had some of the best Alzheimers research in the world, partly because its former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, made it a priority. The country also has detailed health records on self-employed people who pay into a Medicare-like health system. Researchers used these records on more than 429,000 workers, most of whom were shopkeepers or craftsmen such as bakers and woodworkers. They were 74 on average and had been retired for an average of 12 years. Nearly 3 percent had developed dementia but the risk of this was lower for each year of age at retirement. Someone who retired at 65 had about a 15 percent lower risk of developing dementia compared to someone retiring at 60, after other factors that affect those odds were taken into account, Dufouil said. To rule out the possibility that mental decline may have led people to retire earlier, researchers did analyses that eliminated people who developed dementia within five years of retirement, and within 10 years of it. The trend is exactly the same, suggesting that work was having an effect on cognition, not the other way around, Dufouil said. France mandates retirement in various jobs civil servants must retire by 65, she said. The new study suggests people should work as long as they want because it may have health benefits, she said. June Springer, who just turned 90, thinks it does. She was hired as a full-time receptionist at Caffi Plumbing & Heating in Alexandria, Va., eight years ago. Id like to give credit to the company for hiring me at that age, she said. Its a joy to work, being with people and keeping up with current events. I love doing what I do. As long as God grants me the brain to use Ill take it every day. Heather Snyder, director of medical and scientific operations for the Alzheimers Association, said the study results dont mean everyone needs to delay retirement. Its more staying cognitively active, staying socially active, continue to be engaged in whatever it is thats enjoyable to you thats important, she said.

THE REASONS: Researchers say the conclusion makes sense. Working tends to keep people physically active, socially connected and mentally challenged all things known to help prevent mental decline. ABOUT DEMENTIA: About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimers is the most common type. In the U.S., about 5 million have Alzheimers 1 in 9 people age 65 and older. BOOST BRAIN HEALTH You may be able to help keep your brain in shape, not just the rest of your body. A large study in France suggests that delaying retirement and working until later in life may help prevent dementia. Some other things the Alzheimers Association suggests for healthy aging: Stay active. Many studies show exercise reduces dementia risk. Stay connected join a club, travel, volunteer. Social ties boost brain health. Eat right. High cholesterol may contribute to stroke and brain cell damage, while dark vegetables and fruits may help protect brain cells. Do mentally challenging activities such as word puzzles and other things that stimulate thinking skills. Alzheimers info: www.alzheimers.gov Alzheimers Association: www.alz.org

Mondays launch of the hotline comes a week after a federal appeals court heard BPs argument that it has been forced to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in settlement money to businesses with inflated or fictitious claims. A threejudge panel from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals didnt indicate how soon it would rule in the case. Earlier this month, a federal judge appointed former FBI Director Louis Freeh to investigate alleged misconduct by a lawyer who helped administer BPs multibillion-dollar settlement with Gulf Coast residents and businesses. Court-appointed claims administrator Patrick Juneau announced in June that his office is investigating allegations that an attorney on his staff, Lionel H. Sutton III, received a portion of settlement proceeds for claims he had referred to a law firm before he started working on the settlement program. Sutton resigned on June 21, a day after Juneau delivered a report to U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier that outlined the allegations. Suttons wife, Christine Reitano, also worked as a lawyer for the settlement program, but her contract was terminated on June 26, according to a report from Juneau to Barbier dated July 2. The report doesnt specify a reason for the termination of Reitanos contract. In a statement Monday, BP claimed Juneaus office has spent substantially less on anti-fraud efforts than the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, which processed and paid claims before Barbier appointed Juneau last year to take over and administer the settlement program. This seems inappropriate given that the GCCFs fraud detection program enabled it to identify more than 7,000 claims as multi-claimant scams or even efforts at criminal fraud, the BP statement says. The GCCF referred more than half of these to the U.S. Department of Justice for criminal investigation. A spokesman for Juneau didnt immediately respond to an email seeking comment. BP said calls to the hotline can be anonymous and could entitle a caller to a reward if a tip leads to an indictment, recovery of money or denial of a claim. The company said it will review the allegations to determine whether to report them to fraud investigators with Juneaus office or law-enforcement agencies. BP sets up anti-fraud hotline for spill claims Cuba/US easing travel restrictions for diplomats Associated PressMIAMI For decades, Cuban and U.S. diplomats have faced strict limits on their travel within the Cold War enemy countries. Cuban diplomats at the United Nations in New York cannot go 25 miles beyond Columbus Circle in Manhattan or past the Beltway loop circling Washington without the permission of the U.S. State Department. U.S. Interests Section workers, meanwhile, must submit detailed itineraries to Cuban officials if they want to travel outside Havana. Recently, however, Cuban and U.S. diplomats have been increasingly, and more easily, stepping outside the once nearly insurmountable fences. On the island, U.S. officials privately said theyve had an easier time obtaining permission to travel outside the allowed perimeter. And last week, two consuls from the Cuban Interests Section in Washington made a discreet visit to Miami. There they met with U.S. companies that offer charter flights to the island and small groups of Cuban exiles to talk about the easing of regulations allowing Cubans to travel and other reforms. Earlier this year, the chief of the Cuban Interests Section delivered the keynote address at a University of Georgia law school conference on the economic embargo against Cuba. Two other Cuban officials went to Tampa in March to attend an event promoting engagement between the U.S. and Cuba. In the past, they have not had much luck, said Wayne Smith, a former chief of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, and one of the hosts of the Tampa conference, titled, Rapprochement with Cuba: Good for Tampa, Good for Florida, Good for America. The State Department usually said no, Smith said. But in this case, it was, Yes. And I would say a somewhat different tone. A more positive one. The travel is part of a larger, slow-moving thaw between the two countries and comes as both prepare for a sit-down talk on migration issues on Wednesday. Cuba and the U.S. held talks last month on resuming direct mail service. A U.S. federal judge allowed a Cuban intelligence agent to return to the island in May. Robert Pastor, director of the Center for North American Studies at American University, described the moves as cautious steps. If the overall purpose is to find out whether the Cubans are interested in a serious relationship, I think well soon find the answer is yes, he said. And then it will be better to proceed to some larger issues as well. The U.S. and Cuba do not have embassies in each others countries; diplomatic relations between the Soviet-era foes deteriorated after the 1959 communist revolution. But since 1977, both countries have operated Interests Sections under the legal protection of the Swiss embassies. Associated PressCubans wait to enter the U.S. Interests Section in January to apply for U.S. visas in Havana, Cuba. Travel is part of a larger, slow-moving thaw between the two countries and comes as both prepare for a sit-down talk on migration issues on Wednesday.

Interestrates 000F38G Stocks edge higher, giving hot start to July Associated PressNEW YORK Boeing helped the stock market edge higher Monday, extending a scorching start to July. The plane makers stock was one of the standouts as the Standard & Poors 500 index rose for an eighth straight day, its longest streak of gains since January. Boeing gained $3.79, or 3.7 percent, to $105.66 after it was found that batteries were not the cause of a fire on one of its 787 aircraft at Londons Heathrow airport Friday. Earlier this year, smoldering batteries on two 787s caused the plane to be grounded for more than three months. The gains continued a hot streak for the market this month. Stocks rose to record levels last week after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank would not ease its stimulus before the economy was ready. The central bankers comments also stemmed a rise in Treasury yields. The general bias to the market is up, said David Kelly, chief global strategist at JPMorgan Funds. You can see a clear path to economic growth in the United States. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 19.96 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 15,484.26. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.31 points, also 0.1 percent, to 1,682.50. The S&P is up 4.8 percent so far in July, putting it on track to surpass the 5 percent gain it had in January. Both the Dow and S&P are at all-time highs. The Nasdaq composite rose 7.41 points, or 0.2 percent, to 3,607.49. Small-company stocks had the biggest gains Monday. Thats a sign investors are becoming confident in taking on more risk in exchange for the possibility of greater returns. The Russell 2000 rose 6.78 points, or 0.7 percent, to 1,043.30, bringing its gains for the year to 22.8 percent. Thats far ahead of the S&Ps year-to-date gain of 18 percent. Investors will be listening to comments from Bernanke again this week for more clues about the central banks outlook for the economy. The Fed chairman will give his semi-annual testimony to Congress on Wednesday. The central bank is currently buying $85 billion of bonds a month to keep interest rates low and to encourage borrowing and hiring. The pace of companies reporting earnings will also increase this week. US probes C-Class Mercedes for lighting problemsDETROIT U.S. safety regulators are investigating about 218,000 Mercedes C-Class luxury cars because the rear lights can fail and even catch fire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the probe affects cars from the 2008 and 2009 model years. The agency said it has 21 reports of the brake lights or turn signals lights dimming or failing to light. Twinkies may be smaller than people recallNEW YORK Twinkies are back, but they may be a bit smaller than you remember. The new boxes hitting shelves this week list the spongy yellow cakes as having 270 calories and a weight of 77 grams for two cakes, or 135 calories and 38.5 grams for one cake. Right before it went out of business, the predecessor company had told The Associated Press that Twinkies were 150 calories per cake. Photos of past boxes online also indicate the weight to have been 42.5 grams per cake. A spokeswoman for Hostess, Hannah Arnold, said in an email Monday that the size change was made in mid-2012 by the predecessor company. That would mean it happened in the months leading up to its bankruptcy, as the company was trying to keep its head above water financially.Magnetic CEO, Alibaba jackpot rejuvenate YahooSAN FRANCISCO Not much had been going right for Yahoo until it lured Marissa Mayer away from Google to become its CEO last summer. The move is shaping up as the best thing to happen to Yahoo since 2005 when it invested $1 billion in what was then a littleknown Internet company in China, Alibaba. Mayers magnetism and Alibabas prosperity are now combining to transform Yahoo Inc. from a tale of woe into a comeback story that is winning over Silicon Valley and Wall Street. People are spending more time on Yahoos flagship website. Talented engineers and entrepreneurs are coming to work for the company. Investors are adding its long-languishing stock to their portfolios again. The signs of renewed interest and hope mark a dramatic change from the feelings of hopelessness that had enveloped Yahoo under the direction of six CEOs in the six years leading up to Mayers appointment.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013 Long overdueIts been a little over a year now since Club Recovery opened its doors so that different organizations can hold their meetings there. Although not affiliated with any of them, the club works to help recovering AA members to live a better life. I belong to an AA group that meets every day at 6 p.m., and to me it has been an inspiration. I watch the newcomers and those coming back. They are welcomed and nurtured back to a clean life. To me, the club is a great asset to Citrus County, long overdue its only purpose is to help others so we can have a clean community. When I go home, I pray for the club and hope you do too.Ernest Porter InvernessWho are we to judge?Trying to outlaw abortion outright by having Roe v. Wade overturned, or indirectly, by making an abortion more difficult legally, is ill-advised and misguided. You cannot legislate morality. Laws such as those against drug use, adultery and the classic case of the Prohibition amendment have failed in their purpose. Morality must be taught at home, at places of worship and in the schools. Outlawing abortion will only move abortions from a medical facility with sterile instruments to back alleys, leading to the abandonment of newborn babies or the death or serious injury to the pregnant woman. The woman who has an abortion will have to justify her actions before the highest judge of all, not to man-made laws. The first amendment in the Bill of Rights places the importance of freedom of religion even ahead of freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Furthermore, it states at the outset, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, which means that the government should not have a religion and the people are free to practice any religion they choose. Passing laws which satisfies ones religious beliefs violates the spirit and intent of the first amendment, since it is giving the government the right to practice religious beliefs which the amendment says belongs to the people, not the government. Not all Christian religions are pro-life. Others are more tolerant and believe in prochoice. In either case, who are we as mere humans (not God) to judge?Patricia Urbanek Rainbow Springs, DunnellonBOCC trust issuesRecent history suggests that trust between the voters and our Board of County Commissioners is strained. Questions remain about Ottawa Avenue and Port Citrus, which has now moved to the front burner. Im not suggesting that there is any intent to defraud the voters, but there are lingering questions in many voters minds about the use of our money to pay for studies, rights of way and other issues. This is probably why Scott Adams has become popular because he does ask questions and this seems to cause discomfort among his fellow commissioners. I think now would be a good time to put Port Citrus to a vote via a referendum, so the will of the people will be known and acted upon. Short of this, I see the negative rhetoric continuing and the possibility of strong voter reaction during the next election cycle or even some group asking the FDLE to investigate. Either way, good government and our county suffers. Jerry Alvarez Pine RidgePay for serviceI do not mind helping out people less fortunate than I am. This in mind, I need to be able to afford to take care of myself and my family. I believe everyone needs to chip in and share the costs of maintaining services in Citrus County. I propose a service fee where every home in Citrus County pays $250 per year. This fee should keep our property taxes from going up and may even decrease them. This service fee will help pay for fire and police protection, ambulance, mosquito control, hospital and health department, road maintenance, animal control, code enforcement and family protective services. There are a large percentage of homes in this county that do not pay any taxes at all. These older homes and neighborhoods require the most services. This way, taxpayers will be able to afford to live here and not forced out of their homes. This lower tax rate will also encourage taxpayers to move here. If I am forced to pay $2,000 per year for the privilege of having these services available, I feel that everyone could afford to pay $250 per year. I also feel that the county needs to cut back on their spending, starting with the commissioners, mosquito control board, school board, tax collector and property appraiser donating back part, if not all, of their county paid salaries. Justin Krumholtz Inverness As a not-soserious part of their ongoing effort to get rid of Obamacare, House Republicans in May started a Twitter fight they called #Obama careInThreeWords. Rep. Darrell Issa got things started with a tweet that said simply, Serious Sticker Shock. Rep. Michele Bachmann added IRS In Charge. Sen. Richard Burr tossed in Huge Train Wreck. Democrats hit back, weakly, with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultzs Good for America and Rep. Gregory Meeks What America Needs. And then the White House stepped in with a killer line: Its. The. Law. The tweet was accompanied by a photo of the presidents signature on the Affordable Care Act, dated March 23, 2010. Case closed: What part of Its. The. Law. dont you understand? Just to add emphasis, in early June President Obama dismissed concerns that the national health care startup was not going well. This is the way the law was designed to work, he told an audience in California. Since everyones saying how its not going to happen, I think its important for us to recognize and acknowledge that this is working the way its supposed to. Now, however, it appears the administrations bravado was all for show. At the same time Obama was expressing great confidence, White House officials were secretly meeting with representatives of big business to discuss ways to postpone enforcement of parts of the new law. And on Tuesday the White House announced that the employer mandate sometimes described as a crucial element of Obamacare will be delayed to 2015 from its scheduled start on Jan. 1, 2014. Treasury Department official Mark Mazur called the delay transition relief. We have heard concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively, Mazur wrote late Tuesday. We have listened to your feedback. And we are taking action. The move stunned Republicans in Congress, who immediately asked: Whose feedback? What businesses were meeting with the White House? What deals did they make? These communications and the decision-making process related to the delay ... have not been disclosed publicly, wrote House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Rep. Fred Upton in a letter to the Treasury Department and the Department of Health and Human Services. Along with 13 other Republican committee members, Upton demanded the administration reveal which businesses and which government officials were involved in the decision. But the bigger question for Republicans is how to handle the administrations surprise retreat. Should they focus on secrecy, as Upton & Co. are doing? Should they push the White House to explain how Obamacare can still work when large employers dont have to pay fines for not covering workers and, perhaps more importantly, dont have to report their employees health care information to the giant new Obamacare bureaucracy, so the bureaucracy can determine whether those employees are eligible to buy coverage on the exchanges? Or should Republicans just keep pressing for repeal of the whole thing? I think well almost certainly be sticking to a full repeal message all the way, says one GOP Senate aide. The question here is for the administration not us and its basically this: At what point will they realize that this law is unworkable? Probably never. When key Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett wrote, after the delay announcement, that, We are full steam ahead for the marketplaces opening on Oct. 1, she was reflecting the administrations determination to get the health care exchanges up and running no matter what. Delay the employer mandate? OK. Waive this or that rule? Fine. Just make sure the exchanges get going. Theres a reason for that. Obamacare is designed to increase the number of Americans who depend on the government to pay for health insurance. It will expand the Medicaid rolls, and it will give subsidies to millions of individuals and families to purchase insurance on the exchanges. In all, the government will be transferring hundreds of billions of dollars to Americans for health coverage. The White House knows that once those payments begin, repealing Obamacare will no longer be an abstract question of removing legislation not yet in effect. Instead, it will be a very real matter of taking money away from people. Its very, very hard to do that. So yes, retreating on the employer mandate was a big deal. But the White House would rather do that than endanger the flow of money that is the heart of Obamacare. The White House will not waver on that, no matter what Republicans say or do.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

During the difficult economic times of the past five years, however, the challenge of meeting the bottom line has adversely impacted employees in both the public and private sectors. Given county governments significant loss of property tax revenue attributed to plummeting property values, the tax dispute with Duke Energy and the shutting down of the Crystal River nuclear power plant, county government employees have particularly taken the economic punch on the chin. At last count, 114 county government positions have been eliminated through attrition and layoffs. County government employees have also absorbed a three-percent contribution to the Florida Retirement System and most have gone without any pay increase for the past five years. With county government struggling to bridge the budget gap with increased taxes and more cuts in the level of services, now is not the time for county commissioners to approve a proposed three-percent across-the-board pay raise, even though well intended. While some county employees have seen compensation increases associated with promotions, added responsibilities and skill certifications, most county employees have particularly struggled as their income has declined amid a steady rise in the cost of living. Of county governments 497 full-time employees, more than 75 percent earn $40,000 or less annually. Most in this income bracket earn less than the countys household median income of $38,189, which is significantly less than the states household median income of $47,827. Amplifying the financial challenge for these lowerincome county employees is that 29 percent of them earn $25,000 or less annually, with 23 employees paid the states minimum wage of $7.79 per hour. The purpose of a cost of living increase for employees is to make an organizations most important and valuable resource whole. With county commissioners doing a balancing act on a budget tightrope, the modest pay increase should be targeted to the countys lowerincome employees, where its needed the most. County governments lower-income employees serve us well and deserve to be made whole. THE ISSUE:Proposed county pay raise.OUR OPINION:Increases should be targeted, not across-the-board.

The president of the Humanitarians of Florida stated that theres seven feral caged cats arent happy that they arent back living in Whispering Pines Park. Id like to remind you that this park is a bird sanctuary, also a playground for children who like to play in the sand without digging into cat waste. If these seven cats are that important to you, why dont seven of you folks each take one of these pretty kitties home with you and help save a lot of birds, squirrels and, yes, young rabbits. Yes, you called it correct; these feral cats are feral and as such, do not belong in any park. I have the hatOn (July 4) someone wrote in theyd like to have Larry the Cable Guy hat.

Rude behaviorIm calling in reference to July 3, the fireworks here in Inverness. My husband and I, we went to see the fireworks and we stood at the VFW and there was this little boy, 13 years old maybe, and my husband had his hip done and his knee done, so he asked the little boy if he could just put his hand and lean on the back of his chair and the little boy said it was OK. The gentleman that was sitting maybe one chair beside him dont know if that was his dad he turned around and he just said to my husband, Get your hand off of the chair. If youre drunk, go back into the VFW. Anyway, needless to say, my husband was not drunk ... My husband and I, we explained to him that we had asked the little boy if it was OK, that my husband had hip and knee surgery done, and that the little boy said it was OK. But this guy just kept going on and just kept telling him, Youre drunk, you know, and so on. So my husband and I, we just decided to leave before the end of the fireworks. Needless to say, my husband is a Vietnam veteran and that was not a very nice thing to do to a veteran. So if you can just make a point and maybe somehow put this in the paper, I would really appreciate it.High-tech solutionI dont understand in this case of Zimmerman, that the law doesnt step in and prove whose voice that is. With todays all kinds of technology, they cant prove whose voice that was and decide who was doing what? Something isnt right.Independence Day?Well, Independence Day has come and gone and I never heard the word independence spoken except in connection with sales, sales, sales and more sales. You know, I think if our ancestors that fought the Revolutionary War had seen into the future and seen what this country has come to, they would have headed west, joined the Spanish and let the British head this country. Think about it. Sticker shockThis piece of mail we got from the county yesterday about a $60 fire tax which will probably be yearly whos been paying for this all along and now were suddenly getting a $60 bill? Isnt that a little bit much overnight?Jobs numbersSaturday, July 6: Job report of April and May shows improvement. It always shows more hiring in these months every year as the companies allow their regular employees (to) take their regular vacations then, as that is the slow period for these companies. Every company has its slow time. Correct me if I write (this) as incorrect. Put this in Sound Off to enlighten some that are not aware of such job gains and losses. Same as some hire around the holidays and other companies lay off workers. Maybe you, Mr. Editor, can explain this better to your readers.Truth sellsKudos to you for at least printing the truth. Ive started buying your paper a little bit more because youre actually starting to print the truth. If you print the truth more often, youll sell a lot more papers.Legibility pleaseI just spent $4.49 for a loaf of bread. I believe there is a law that they must put a best buy date on the loaf of bread, but they put it on so you cannot read it. If I am paying $4.49 for a loaf of bread, I would like to know whether it is fresh bread, expired or day old or whatever. I know they put the date on there but you cannot read it. Can something not be done about this? Tell about lawsuitIm inquiring about why the Chronicle will not publish this lawsuit about Internet cafes all over the state. I thought maybe it would be in the Chronicle, but I dont see it in there and I just wonder if theyre going to print it.Great fireworksI would just like to thank Inverness for all the great fireworks and Im proud to be a part of this community. Thank you. Legal paymentsThe other month you had reports in the paper on delinquent taxes that people can purchase. I didnt see Duke Energy in there with their taxes that they didnt pay. Can people buy those also? Editors note: Dukes taxes are not considered delinquent because the company made a good faith payment and then sued the property appraiser. A judge will decide whether the payment was enough or not. Fix our hospital!Dear Gov. Scott: As a taxpayer of Citrus County, I am writing this letter to request that your office intervene in the fiasco that is taking place in Citrus County with the Citrus Memorial Hospital. For several years, the two governing bodies have been squabbling over control of the hospitals finances and operation. During the past three years, the two governing bodies have squandered several hundred thousand tax dollars on lawyers and lawsuits. Because the two boards have not been capable of resolving their differences, the hospital is now up for sale. Requests for proposals by an outside consultant have resulted in several offers by public companies, but the continued squabbling is about to sabotage the efforts by the consultant to complete the sale. The editorial in todaysCitrus County Chroniclesummed it up by implying that for this issue to be resolved, might need Tallahassees oversight. I, along with a lot of other Citrus County taxpayers agree with the assessment. We are tired of this amateur mismanagement of our tax dollars and this hospital.

Elder Bush brings rare bipartisan niceness to DC Associated PressWASHINGTON Something unusual happened during former President George H.W. Bushs return to the White House Monday Republicans and Democrats actually were genuinely nice to each other. Its not something Washington sees much of these days, with senators locked in a bitter dispute over the confirmation process and the White House and Congress unable to agree on hardly any legislation. But in the midst of all the fighting, President Barack Obama took time to honor a volunteer service award Bush created 24 years ago. The ceremony in the East Room marked the awarding of the 5,000th Daily Point of Light Award, which Bush started after delivering a 1989 inaugural address that described Americans serving each other as a thousand points of light. We are surely a kinder and gentler nation because of you, Obama told Bush, sparking a sustained round of applause from the packed room and tears from daughter Dorothy Bush Koch. The Bush family, which fell out of public favor in the waning days of George W. Bushs wartime presidency, has recently been reemerging into the political spotlight that has grown more favorable now that their dynasty is out of office. The younger former President Bush has been traveling Africa to work on health projects and promoting immigration reform, and his poll numbers are at a postpresidential high. His brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has written a book on immigration reform and is keeping the door open to a presidential run in 2016. George P. Bush, Jebs oldest son, is running for statewide office in Texas. The 89-year-old George H.W. Bush, who just a few years ago parachuted out of an airplane, is no longer able to stand and spoke less than a minute at the White House Monday. But the 41st president still showed his spark with the colorful socks that are becoming his trademark and the barbs he traded with his son, Neil, chairman of the Points of Light organization. Bush simply thanked the Obamas for their hospitality and then turned the floor to Neil by telling him, Keep it short. He may not be parachuting any more, but hes taken up a new hobby and that is hes trying to be a style setter, Neil teased, pointing out his fathers red-andwhite striped socks. GQ man, were calling him, instead of 41. Obama handed out the 5,000th Point of Light Award to Floyd Hammer and Kathy Hamilton, retired farm owners from Union, Iowa. In 2004, they created Outreach, a nonprofit organization that has delivered more than 232 million meals to children suffering from hunger in the United States and east Africa. Sand art Associated PressSculptor Matt Long carves a sand castle Monday in lower Manhattan, New York. The 18-foot-high sculpture takes about three weeks to complete. Airlines, WTC owners square off in NYC courtNEW YORK The owners of the World Trade Center buildings destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks want billions of dollars in damages from aviation companies linked to the hijacked planes. A federal non-jury trial started Monday in Manhattan. The buildings owners, World Trade Center Properties, have already received nearly $5 billion in insurance proceeds. A lawyer for the airlines argued against awarding the company another $3.5 billion, saying the extra billions would be more than double the fair market value of the buildings that were destroyed. But the owners said its in line with their costs. In court papers, both sides have accused the other of unfairly characterizing their claims. The aviation companies include United, American and AMR Corp.New tiny moon found orbiting faraway NeptuneCAPE CANAVERAL Chalk up one more moon for Neptune. NASA announced the discovery of Neptunes 14th moon Monday. The Hubble Space Telescope captured the moon as a white dot in photos of Neptune on the outskirts of our solar system. The new moon Neptunes tiniest at just 12 miles across is designated S/2004 N 1. The SETI Institutes Mark Showalter of Mountain View, Calif., made the discovery. He was studying the segments of rings around Neptune when the white dot popped out, 65,400 miles from Neptune. He tracked its movement in more than 150 pictures taken from 2004 to 2009.Woman gets 10 years in Rwanda fraud caseCONCORD, N.H. A federal judge on Monday sentenced a New Hampshire woman to the maximum 10 years in prison for lying about her role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide, saying the United States cannot be a haven for those who slaughter out of hatred and ignorance. Rwanda native Beatrice Munyenyezi declined her right to address the court after U.S. District Judge Steven McAuliffe imposed her sentence. Munyenyezi, 43, was convicted in February of entering the United States and securing citizenship by lying about her role as a commander of one of the notorious roadblocks where Tutsis were singled out for slaughter. She also denied affiliation with any political party, despite her husbands leadership role in the extremist Hutu militia party.

The 91-yearold was sentenced to 90 years in jail for crimes against humanity during the countrys 1971 independence war. Leader of Mexicos Zetas cartel capturedMEXICO CITY Miguel Angel Trevino Morales, the notoriously brutal leader of the feared Zetas drug cartel, has been captured in the first major blow against an organized crime leader by a Mexican administration struggling to drive down persistently high levels of violence, a U.S. federal official confirmed. Trevino Morales, known as Z-40, was captured by Mexican Marines in Nuevo Laredo, the Mexican media reported. The U.S. official who confirmed the media reports was not authorized to speak to the press and asked not to be identified. Trevinos capture removes the leader of a corps of special forces defectors who splintered off into their own cartel and spread across Mexico, expanding from drug dealing into extortion and human trafficking. Along the way, the Zetas authored some of the worst atrocities of Mexicos drug war, slaughtering dozens, leaving their bodies on display and gaining a reputation as perhaps the most terrifying of the countrys numerous ruthless cartels.Syrian regime attacks on villages kill 29BEIRUT Syrian government troops pounded rebelheld villages around the northern city of Idlib with rockets, artillery and airstrikes, killing at least 29 people, including six children, activists said Monday. After seizing the momentum in recent months in Syrias civil war, President Bashar Assads forces are on the offensive against the rebels on several fronts, including in Idlib province along the border with Turkey. Government forces are in firm control of the provincial capital of same name, while dozens of rebel brigades control the countryside. The Britain-based Observatory for Human Rights said government shelling overnight targeted five villages near Idlib city. Eight women and six children were among the 29 people killed, according to the Observatory.Two more bodies recovered in train derailmentLAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec Police have recovered two more bodies in the wreckage of a runaway oil trains explosive derailment that killed 50 people in a Quebec town.

Peace in the nations capital Senators scrapping over nominees Associated PressWASHINGTON A showdown looming, Republicans and Democrats groped for a compromise behind closed doors Monday over confirming stalled White House appointees in a dispute that threatened what little bipartisan cooperation remains in the Senate. Nearly all 100 senators attended the rare closeddoor meeting in the Capitols Old Senate Chamber, just down the hall from where they normally debate the issues of the day with the public and news media in attendance. After two hours, Sen. Pat Roberts emerged and said the talks were continuing and had been productive. I think the mood there is How can we get out of this? said the Kansas Republican. He offered no details. Majority Leader Harry Reid insisted in advance that Republicans permit yes-or-no confirmation votes on all seven of the nominees at issue. If they wont, he declared, Democrats will change the Senates rules to strip them of their ability to delay. There was no formal response from Republicans, although Reid and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell met privately during the day. Officials said several possible compromises had been floated in various meetings and conversations. Maybe theres a little bit of a thaw, said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., as he entered the meeting. The leaders are continuing to talk, the White house is involved in discussions with some of our members. Nothing has resulted from that, but the fact that people are still talking is a positive. Officials in both parties said there had been discussions about Republicans stepping aside to permit confirmation for nearly all of the seven, with Obama agreeing to submit a replacement for at least one of two stalled appointees to the National Labor Relations Board. Republicans counter that a rules change made unilaterally by one party would profoundly alter the Senate, where both parties pay tribute to maintaining minority rights that are far stronger than in the House. Rules changes generally are made with at least two-thirds vote of the Senate, assuring bipartisan support. At the core of the dispute is the minority partys power to stall or block a yesor-no vote on nearly anything, from legislation to judicial appointments to relatively routine nominations for administration positions. While a majority vote is required to confirm presidential appointees, it takes 60 votes to end delaying tactics and proceed to a yes-or-no vote. The Democrats are threatening to change the rules only as they apply to nominations for administration positions, not judges or legislation, although Reid appeared to hedge when asked what other changes he might want to make the Senate more effective. Nothing right now, he said. Nominees at stake in filibuster fightWASHINGTON At the center of the bitter fight about filibuster rights in the Senate are seven people nominated by President Barack Obama to serve in administration agencies. They are: Richard Cordray, director, Bureau of Consumer Financial protection. Nominated July, 17, 2011. Richard Griffin, member, National Labor Relations Board. Nominated December 15, 2011.

Manny Machado whacks another double into the corner at Camden Yards. Bryce Harper belts a tape-measure home run or barrels into a catcher ... or an outfield fence ... or whatever stands in his way. The next generation of baseball stars has arrived straight from the senior prom, it seems and these guys are changing the complexion of the grand ol game. Derek Jeter is 39 and injured, left off the All-Star team for the first time in eight years. Matt Harvey is 24 and merciless, with a polished array of breaking pitches to complement 98 mph heat. Theres definitely a different breed of ballplayer coming out, Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. This seems to be one of those cycles where a lot of young players are flashing quick. No kidding. Trout and Harper, the Rookies of the Year last season, are making their second trip to the All-Star game. This time, they will be starting tonight at Citi Field after getting elected by fans with a fervor for the new boys of summer. Some of baseballs best players are among the youngest on the field. Night after night, they are putting up unprecedented numbers and turning in spectacular plays that belie a birth certificate from the 1990s. Its good for the game, Trout said. A lot of young guys are playing fearless and making a name for themselves at an early stage in their career. Not only that, they are moving merchandise. Jersey sales for Harvey, Harper and Trout rank among the top 10 this season based on purchases of Majestic tops at MLB.com, said Major League Baseball and the players association last week. Harper is 20, and Trout is all of 21. Barely old enough to drive, let alone buy a drink. Machados jersey ranked eighth, one spot behind Jeter, even though the Baltimore third baseman has spent less than a year in the majors. That didnt stop him from earning his first All-Star selection on his 21st birthday. Machado was voted in by players, a significant sign of respect from his peers. Well, mostly elders, actually. He certainly deserved it at a power-packed position after hitting 39 doubles in the first half, threatening the single-season record of 67 set by Earl Webb in 1931. In todays era, young dudes are getting better and more prepared to come up to the big leagues, said Orioles teammate Adam Jones, an All-Star himself. Its just an improvement in the game. These young dudes are phenoms, and hes put his name up there. Hes probably more mature than I am, and Im 27. Take a swing around the majors and you see its not only Trout, Harper and Machado. There is Miami rookie Jose Fernandez, a 20-year-old All-Star with a Cy Young future. Second-year shortstop Jean Segura in Milwaukee, who leads the NL in hits at age 23. Dont forget lefty Patrick Corbin (23), 11-1 with a 2.35 ERA for Arizona. And of course, Harvey, the New York Mets ace who has 29 major league starts. For me, hes the best pitcher in the game, Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross said.

Associated PressGULLANE, Scotland If given the option, Nick Faldo would prefer not to be standing over a putt to win the British Open. Im either going to win by six, Sir Nick joked Monday, or be stuck in the hay somewhere. Theres a lot better chance of the latter happening. Faldo is grabbing the clubs again for what will surely be his final Open, though his chances of being the latest 50-something player to make a serious run at the claret jug are beyond improbable. He hasnt played a truly competitive round since his last Open at St. Andrews in 2010, hasnt played much at all over the last three years. But Faldo couldnt resist the chance to celebrate his birthday he turns 56 on Thursday, the day of the opening round at a course that means so much to him. Faldo won the first of his major titles at Muirfield in 1987. Five years later, he added his name to the claret jug again at the very same place. Both times, he won by a stroke, with a par on the 72nd hole. Wow, Ive got a very special place here the 18th green at Muirfield, Faldo said. That won in my heart and my mind. While making the cut is probably about the best he can hope for, Faldo has relished the process of trying to get his game and his body back in shape to be somewhat competitive with players half his age. Hes been rehabbing his ailing left shoulder. Hes been working on his swing with those high-tech gadgets that werent around in his prime. He chatted up Gio Valiante, the sports psychologist for new U.S. Open champion Justin Rose. Ive gleaned a few gems there, Faldo said. These kids, theyve got it all now. We were still searching back in my time. Im really enjoying that. The bottom line, I hope that for the end of the week Im inspired, like all of us; that I want to play again and have another go here. I think thats really whats in mind. He figured he was done after that last Open at St. Andrews, where he shot 81 on a windy second day and didnt come close to making the cut. I didnt enjoy that, he said. But that all changed when Faldo was doing a commercial shoot a few months ago, in which he was asked to talk about his favorite courses. At first, he thought of the coastline at Pebble Beach, the towering pines at Augusta National, the history and atmosphere at St. Andrews. Then, he remembered Muirfield. That maybe sowed some seeds, he said. Later, I was in my gym at home, and I thought at the time, Youre just strong enough to have a go. It might be the last chance I get to walk with fellow Open champions. And so I kind of said, OK, Im going to go for it. Faldo is paired in the first two rounds with Fred Couples and five-time Open champion Tom Watson. Im delighted with my draw, Faldo said. If Im feeling intense, Ill go and talk to Tom. If I want to feel relaxed, Ill talk to Freddie. Thats a great threesome. In 2009, a few months shy of his 60th birthday, Watson nearly became the oldest major champion in history. He led going to the 72nd hole at Turnberry, only to make a bogey and lose in a playoff to Stewart Cink. Experience clearly counts in this tournament. A year before Watsons remarkable performance, 53-year-old Greg Norman was the leader heading to the final day at Royal Birkdale. Faldo has no illusions about making a similar run, saying it would be quite an achievement if I could hover close to making the cut. Besides, he would prefer to avoid the sort of anguish that Watson was inevitably feeling as a sixth Open title slipped away. It couldve been the greatest sporting achievement of all time, Faldo said. I would be scarred from that, if I had a putt to win the Open, even at 59. And Tom is a very strong man. He probably wont really let on, but that would scar me. So Im going to avoid having to putt to win.B2TUESDAY, JULY16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressNick Faldo gestures Monday during a practice round ahead of the British Open Golf Championship in Muirfield, Scotland.

The following are the first offerings from that request.Inside fastballsThis is for all the Tampa Bay Rays fans who are out there. OK, everybodys been talking about everything that happened this past Saturday (June 29) when Fernando Rodney supposedly threw at McGee. He was throwing at him. That was a fast ball that just got away from him and there was no need on Sundays game for Porcello to throw at Zobrist and hit him. It was a good thing that the benches did get warned because that would have gotten way, way, way out of hand. Then in the eighth inning, everybody thought Farnsworth was going to come in and throw it at McGee because Farnsworth did not have good numbers against him. Proved everybody wrong and got out. Gotta love it And also, Dewayne and Brian are excellent TV announcers. They know what theyre talking about and its a good thing they do talk about other things. You dont want to fall asleep watching a game.Show some humilityNow we have to read about LeBron James and all his magic triumphs on the basketball court. But the truth being known, hes one of the biggest whiners and complainers that plays professional sports. If things dont go his way, if you ever watch anything, hes always complaining to the refs, complaining to the players, complaining to the coaches. That guy is a joke and hes a big jerk. Yeah, hes a good ballplayer, but theres little more to professional sports than being a good ballplayer. Thats just a small percentage of it. Personality and attitude play a big part. Obviously hes missing them. It looks like, according to the latest gossip from the sports announcers, that hes losing his hair. Thats why hes wearing very large headbands these days. He ought to just accept the fact that he is a good ballplayer and show some humility and humbleness and not think that he owns the sport or owns the franchise to basketball.No love for announcersI cant believe the commentators they use to discuss the play-by-play action for the Wimbledon. In the NadalDarcis match, Boris Becker apparently was one of the commentators and he basically stunk. I never heard anybody who was yakking like he was bored to death. He spoke in a monotone, short, choppy sentences. There was no enthusiasm in his voice. Why do they pick these people to do this? This is Wimbledon. These guys just, I dont know if he was on something or not. But, boy, that was the biggest mistake of having that idiot on there. Youd think they would pick a better group of people who are more interested in the Wimbledon that could be more energetic when they do the commentating. Danica is no JimmieI dont know why theyre trying to make Danica Patrick some big idol in the racing world. Shes never going to be a Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson or Dale Earnhardt, thats for sure. So its obviously a ploy just to throw some good-looking female in there to help boost sales and get more people to come to the racetrack. Because if you ever observe the races on TV, in many of the cases, the seats are half empty. Its because of the cost. Prices went up. It used to be reasonable to go to races several years ago.I think its legalIm reading the paper this morning, July 5, about Eldrick Woods. I think if youll check in fact, I know if youll check back about the time he was really doing well on the tour, that he legally, legally changed his name to Tiger from Eldrick because everybody called him Tiger and he decided he wanted that to be his name. So I think if youll check back, youll find he legally changed his name to Tiger Woods.Questioning miraclesTheres something really strange about (Andy) Murray winning Wimbledon over his rival. That other guys just unbelie vable. I dont know how he did it Murray, in my estimation, isnt that good to beat the people hes done, because last year he could hardly do anything. And I cant believe in one years time, you know, its like a miracle. So I question sports and how legitimate everything is.Looking for schedulesI live in Hernando and we, my husband and I, like to go watch the Little League games over at Bicentennial Park in Crystal River and we have a hard time looking at the Sports page and finding out when the games are and what time and what day. And I was just wondering if theres any way they can put any kind of a schedule just giving the time and the day. Thats really all we need.See ya later, alligatorI know that everything is not about college football and I know that the Aaron Hernandez situation is a tragedy, but I cant really figure out why its never been mentioned that he is a former Florida Gator. If he were a former Florida State Seminole, the headline would consistently read, Former Seminole Aaron Hernandez has been charged with murder, but nothing about the fact that the boy was a Gator. Im sorry its happened, but I see that as a form of discrimination in the printing of the articles. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 SportsOPINIONS
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE League. Hes really good. I faced a lot of those guys in the American League last year and I cant say that I saw anyone better than him. His mound presence is as good as youll see. There are 12 All-Stars this season 24 or younger, seven in the National League. Thats the most since a dozen were selected in 1993, according to STATS a group that included Ken Griffey Jr., Mike Piazza, Gary Sheffield, Mike Mussina and Juan Gonzalez. The only player from that bunch under 23 was 21-year-old catcher Ivan Rodriguez. This year, there are four. That doesnt include Los Angeles Dodgers sensation Yasiel Puig, left out of the game after six electric weeks in the big leagues at 22. More to come from him, for sure. In all, 12 players who qualified as rookies last season made this All-Star game. So much for sophomore slumps. It is kind of amazing the level that these young guys are playing, said Yankees manager Joe Girardi, who is reminded of the mid-90s when Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra broke in at shortstop in the American League. Although fresh faces are taking over, that doesnt mean all the old guys are out. Mariano Rivera, Torii Hunter and Carlos Beltran are back, bringing decades of experience and wisdom. What impresses veterans the most about this group is the way these players carry themselves on and off the field. Harper occasionally flashes a hot temper with Washington, but opponents mostly praise them for their all-around skill and steady performance. Its different from when I first came up. Just the attention, the media coverage, the pressure, said Twins catcher Joe Mauer, a No. 1 draft pick who made his first All-Star appearance at 23. To keep everything in perspective and go out there and do your job every day and stay consistent is really what makes it pretty special. A lot of guys can come up and have immediate success right away and the league can kind of figure you out a little bit. But those guys keep going day after day and keep producing. Making them just the sort of stars baseball wants to build around. I like the fact that they play the game the right way. They seem to get it, Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan said. Theyre gifted, theyre energetic. Its good to see a young, upand-coming player that represents not only their franchise well but the game well.

Associated PressYoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics won the MLB All-Star Home Run Derby on Monday in New York. Cespedes claims Home Run Derby Athletics slugger steals the show from All-Stars Associated PressNEW YORK Yoenis Cespedes won baseballs Home Run Derby, becoming the first player left out of the All-Star game to take home the crown. The Oakland Athletics slugger beat Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round Monday night at reconfigured Citi Field, hitting the decisive drive with five swings to spare. In only his second major league season, the outfielder from Cuba dropped his bat and raised his arm when he sent his 32nd homer of the night some 455 feet to deep center field, where it caromed off the back wall of the black batters eye. He was swarmed by the American League All-Stars near the third base line. The final addition to the field, Cespedes was the fourth player not selected for the All-Star game to compete in the event.
B4TUESDAY, JULY16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000FFCJ Animated film features the Indianapolis 500 Associated PressTrapped in a mundane job at the tomato plant, Theo dreams of becoming a glamorous race car driver. He wants the fame and fortune of Indianapolis 500 winner Guy Gagne, but more than anything, Theo wants to go fast. The problem? Theo is a snail. Thats the premise behind the DreamWorks Animation movie Turbo that opens Wednesday and features the Indianapolis 500. The idea, by director, cowriter and story creator David Soren, came from watching his young sons obsession with all things fast and an annoying snail infestation in his own front yard. Its the juxtaposition of extreme slowness and speed all in my yard, Soren said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. I love an underdog story, and nobody expects anything out of a snail, the odds are stacked against them. They are the butt of slow jokes they are stepped on by kids, despised by gardeners, eaten by the French so the parallels of a snail and an underdog was the perfect match. Using a template similar to three of Sorens favorites Rocky, The Karate Kid, and Breaking Away he created an animated underdog story that pays homage to The Fast and The Furious franchise. Theo (Ryan Reynolds) finally finds his speed after being accidentally sucked into a street racers engine and getting zapped with nitrous oxide. So long, slow-poke snail. Theo becomes Turbo and he begins a push to escape the drudgery of his life in the San Fernando Valley and make it to the Indianapolis 500 to race against Gagne, his FrenchCanadian hero. For any race fan, human or mollusk, the pinnacle of achievement in the sport is the Indianapolis 500, Soren said of his decision to center the movie on The Greatest Spectacle of Racing. Its a dream come true for the snail, as well as the IndyCar Series, which cant buy a break in halting its slide in public interest. Operating the last several years with big ideas but a thin marketing budget, nothing has seemed to work in building a sustainable buzz around the series. Now it has a life-size, free advertisement of its centerpiece event and storied speedway on big screens across America. Soren tabbed three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti as a technical consultant for the racing sequences, and had full access to the speedway to ensure authenticity. When you have a snail that can go 200 mph, it was important to ground everything else in reality, Soren said. Franchitti, who with his thick hair and busy eyebrows bares an unintentionally slight resemblance to Gagne, made several trips to DreamWorks studio to lend a hand and was pleased with the final product. I sat and watched all the ins and outs of it, I was totally caught up in the story, Franchitti said. The animation is unbelievable, just incredible. But the story itself, how funny it is, theres jokes in there that kids will get and jokes adults will get. I was rolling around laughing. Reigning Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan was one of several drivers who attended the New York premiere, while the rest of the IndyCar field saw the film last week in Toronto before their doubleheader weekend. All were impressed with the realism of both their craft and the speedway. I think the movie has a great message its about getting the awareness of the Indy 500, but also a message of perseverance, Kanaan said. Scott Dixon took his two young daughters and said they immediately wanted to see the movie again, while Sebastien Bourdais said his 6-year-old was entertained from start to finish. She was just big eyes the whole time, laughing, really enjoying it, Bourdais said. Its one of these movies that you can take it with two degrees, with the adults eye and kids eye because it fits perfectly. Its the right message and its great for the IndyCar Series and Indy. Franchitti and Will Power both play reporters at the speedway in the movie. Racing great Mario Andretti plays several roles, including one of the Yellow Shirt volunteers the speedway uses each year. Andretti, who also worked on the animated Cars, isnt a huge fan of racing movies, saying they either overdo it or they totally miss it. Ive not seen anything thats realistic. But he was impressed with Sorens team and the focus on every detail. They were asking very pertinent questions about what they can incorporate in the film, such as when you go around the corner, you see the rubber marbles fly, Andretti said. It makes you appreciate the detail that goes into these things. Its a fun, fun story and it can help IndyCar. Its going to pique curiosity. When you see something in that format, you want to see the real thing. Indianapolis is still Indianapolis. This is going to strike a chord.

Turbo is a life-size advertisement for the Indianapolis 500 that just might give a boost to the fledgling IndyCar Series. RACING BRIEFNASCAR to automate rulebook, bring clarity to teams, fansCOLUMBIA, S.C. NASCAR plans to automate its rule book and revamp its appeals process in a wide-ranging effort to bring more clarity to race teams and fans. The governing body outlined several initiatives Monday it expects to implement in its three major series before the start of the 2015 racing season. The effort started eight months ago and will be an ongoing process to keep up with technology and fan interests, said Steve ODonnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. That includes converting its rule book from a word document to computer automated-design drawings that can be easily accessed by race shops to see whats allowed and what isnt. Penalties will be specifically spelled out for each type of infraction. Another area was shifting more inspection responsibility to NASCARs Research & Development operation away from the track, freeing up more time for race teams to practice instead of waiting to have their cars looked at. ODonnell said NASCAR would also improve information fans can access about pit stops.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFSPouncey apologizes for supporting HernandezPITTSBURGH Pittsburgh Steelers AllPro center Maurkice Pouncey has apologized for wearing a baseball cap supporting former college teammate Aaron Hernandez. Pouncey and his twin brother Mike, a center for the Miami Dolphins, were photographed wearing hats that read Free Hernandez during their co-birthday party in Miami on Saturday night. Hernandez played at the University of Florida with the Pounceys from 2007-09. The former New England Patriots tight end is charged with murder in the killing of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. Maurkice Pouncey posted on his Twitter account Monday he understands the seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate. Pouncey added he regrets making light of the situation and apologized if he offended anyone. The Steelers had no immediate comment.FIU dismisses starting running back RhodesMIAMI FIU has dismissed running back Kedrick Rhodes from the team for a violation of team policy. Rhodes was the Panthers leading rusher last season with 714 yards and was slated to start this year as a senior. In 2011, he ran for 1,149 yards. The school announced the dismissal on Monday but did not specify the violation. The Miami Herald reported this weekend that Rhodes had been arrested for firing a gun on campus. Without Rhodes, sophomore Shane Coleman becomes the leading returning rusher among running backs for FIU. The sophomore had eight carries for 34 yards last season.Former MLB catcher Matt Batts dead at 91BATON ROUGE, La. Matt Batts, who caught Hall of Fame pitcher Satchel Paige during a 10-year major league career, has died at age 91. Family spokesman Leo Honeycutt said Batts died Sunday at his home in Baton Rouge, where he retired after playing for five major league teams. A San Antonio native, Batts signed with the Boston Red Sox while playing for Baylor in the early 1940s. He made his major league debut with Boston in 1947 after serving in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Batts caught Paige, the first black pitcher in the American League, with the St. Louis Browns in 1951. He went on to play for Detroit, the Chicago White Sox and Cincinnati. In retirement, he ran youth baseball clinics in Louisiana.Two Broncos execs suspended for DUI arrestsENGLEWOOD, Colo. The Denver Broncos have suspended two executives who are facing drunken driving charges. Director of player personnel Matt Russell was suspended indefinitely without pay Monday, and director of pro personnel Tom Heckert was suspended for a month without pay. Executive vice president John Elways top two advisers were arrested and jailed on suspicion of drunken driving in separates incidents within a month of each other. On July 6, Russell hit two vehicles, including a police SUV in Breckenridge, injuring an officer. Russell registered a 0.246 percent breath alcohol content, three times the legal threshold for a DUI violation in Colorado, according to the arrest affidavit. Heckerts blood-alcohol content was measured at 0.162 percent upon his release seven hours after his June 11 arrest in Parker, according to a Douglas County Sheriffs Office report.Flyers bring back Hextall as assistant GMPHILADELPHIA The Philadelphia Flyers have hired a familiar face, Ron Hextall, as assistant general manager and director of hockey operations. Philadelphia general manager Paul Holmgren made the announcement on Monday, as the Flyers welcomed back one of the most successful goaltenders in franchise history. Hextall, 49, played 11 seasons for the Flyers, appearing in 489 regular-season games across three different stints with the team (1986-92, 1994-95, and 1998-99). He went 240-172-58 and posted a 2.91 goals-against average. His 45 playoff wins are the most in Flyers history. Hextall spent the last seven seasons with the Los Angeles Kings as vice president and assistant general manager. The Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012.Regis Philbin hosting Fox Sports 1 talk showNEW YORK Regis Philbins new sports talk show premieres next month with the launch of cable channel Fox Sports 1.

My patient is 39 years old and she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago. When a woman has breast cancer at an early age, it can be due to genetic changes. This is measured by the test called BRCA-1 and BRCA2. Her insurance is not covering it. The test costs almost $3,000. She cannot afford it and so she is unable to get the test. If she has genetic changes, her treatment can be radically affected. BRCA-1 and 2 testing was patented by Myriad lab. Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court took the case regarding whether this test can be patented or not. This is because genes are not a human invention; they are there since birth. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that isolated human genes may not be patented. However, artificially constructed genes are eligible for patents because they are inventions and do not exist in nature. The decision concerned patents on BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes held by Myriad Genetics. Currently, the Myriad genetic test for BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 mutations costs more than $3,000 and is not always covered by insurance. Now the Supreme Court has ruled that Myriads patents are no longer valid and other companies will be allowed to develop their own tests for these genetic mutations, prices may come down, making them affordable to more women at high risk for breast and ovarian cancers. Hopefully, it will be low enough for my patients insurance to cover it or my patient to afford it. Competition drives innovation. The cost of genetic sequencing has been coming down since 1994, but the price for doing BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing has been going up because there has been no competition. The Supreme Court decision is a victory for genetic justice. The court got it right by supporting the most vulnerable of all:HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE So you know: T he information contained in the Health & Life section is not intended to cover all possible directions, precautions, warnings, drug interactions, allergic reactions, or adverse effects and is not intended to replace consultation with a physician.

He had fallen into a depression 10 years earlier and turned to food for comfort, adding almost 150 pounds to his 6-foot frame. His triglyceride levels were at 465 (normal/healthy is below 150) and his total cholesterol level was at 249 (normal/healthy is below 200). I didnt have diabetes, but I was borderline, Camasi said. He also had neuropathy, which caused extreme pain in his feet. Neuropathy is often associated with diabetes. In denial about his weight gain, Camasi said as the number on the scale went up, hed think, I need new clothes, but never I need to lose weight. Being obese or overweight is one of the major risk factors for developing Type 2 diabetes. Jeff Camasi was on his way to developing the disease until he took control of his life, changed his eating habits and lost 110 pounds. 66people per year, on average, died from diabetes in Citrus County from 2009-11. 5,235is the average number of people each year in Citrus County who were hospitalized for diabetes between 2009-11.25.8 millionchildren and adults in the United States have diabetes 8.3 percent of the population.79 millionpeople have pre-diabetes, blood glucose levels higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

See DIABETES/ Page C2Walking the Walk/ C2 Ear, Nose & Throat/ C2 Sound Bites/C3 000FHQ6 Can cholesterol medications lower risk of esophageal cancer? Afew weeks ago, I wrote an article regarding reflux and the link between many different types of cancer. I think I received more comments and emails regarding this article than any other in quite some time. Reflux is a problem many residents of Citrus County have, and as more and more people know about the link of chronic untreated reflux and various cancers, more and more people are anxious to do something about it. But could a class of drugs that many people take for elevated cholesterol levels actually cut a persons risk of developing cancer if they also experience reflux? According to new research, the class of drugs called statins may lower the risk of esophageal cancer, particularly in patients with Barretts esophagus, a process of changes in the lower esophagus associated with chronic reflux. This study was recently published in the journal of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. In this study, researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. conducted a literature review through August 2012 to identify 13 studies that evaluated exposure to statins, and they reported the risk of developing esophageal cancer. The researchers found that the included studies reported 9,285 cases of esophageal See BENNETT/ Page C2 Important Supreme Court ruling on patents and gene testing
cancer among 1,132,969 patients. A significant reduction of 28 percent in the risk of esophageal cancer was seen among patients who took statins in this very large analysis of patients. Among the patients in this study who were known to have Barretts esophagus, comprised of 312 esophageal adenocarcinomas in 2,125 patients, after adjusting for potential confounders, statins were associated with a very significant 41 percent decrease in the risk of developing esophageal cancer. While this finding is impressive, it comes with a cost. According to the study, in order to prevent one case of esophageal cancer in patients with Barretts esophagus, you would have to treat 389 patients with statins. Still, based on an analysis of these studies, statin use may be associated with a lower risk of esophageal cancer, particularly in patients with Barretts esophagus. If you have chronic reflux, discuss these finding with your primary care physician.Dr. C.

Then one Saturday in March 2012, he stopped at a yard sale, and as he walked back to his truck a woman called out, Are you interested in losing weight? It was such a bold thing to ask it shocked me, he said. But I said, Ive been contemplating it. He went back to talk to the woman who told him about her weight loss success drinking green smoothies made from fresh vegetables and fruits and protein powder. She also introduced Camasi to her life coach, who became his life coach. Since that day, I am not the same, he said. Each morning, Camasi mixes up a smoothie his favorite is bok choy, watermelon and dark, sweet cherries with a scoop of protein powder and thats breakfast. He snacks throughout the day on nuts, carrots and other vegetables and has a salad for lunch. He has drastically reduced his high-calorie, high-fat, sugar-laden food intake and has begun working out at a local gym. Im off my cholesterol meds and Im weaning off the blood pressure med, he said. His triglyceride level is now 199 and cholesterol is at 191. Im ecstatic, he said. Im now doing presentations and motivating people. Hes eager to share his success with others and hed like to find a tennis partner. My goal is 250 pounds, and Im about 30 pounds away, he said. Its within reach I can almost touch it.

Her small right hand lay in her lap grasping an object tightly. She looked up at me and met my gaze. Its my treasure, she said as she raised her arm toward her chest. She protectively covered her right hand with her left. The girls mom patted her on the head and smiled down at her. The little girl then told me about her treasure, one her mom had just given her. She said her treasure told her that her mom was special and that a lot of people cared about her mom. She said that because of her treasure, her mom didnt get sick anymore and had time to play Barbies with her. She explained that her mom wasnt sad anymore and whenever she got angry only at her brother, not her she would call one of her new friends and her mom would soon be nice again. She also said she wasnt afraid to go to sleep anymore and strange people didnt show up at her house at night. She told me of how her mom was learning to cook dinner for her and her brother from a show on TV. She leaned forward in her chair and said in a whisper, Mommy doesnt get appressed (depressed) and leave me alone. Its scary to be alone. While the little girl was talking, her mothers eyes welled up and she fidgeted. The girl told her mom, Its OK now, youre not sick anymore and they wont take us away from you! Her mother was now crying, and the girl offered the treasure for her mother to hold. As she opened her hand, a oneyear sobriety coin lay in her palm. The mother smiled through her tears and cradled her daughters hand with the coin. The mother said it was a true treasure and that it meant a new life for all three of them. The woman sat straighter in her chair and exclaimed she just celebrated her first year of sobriety the previous week. Her sponsor had given her the coin and her daughter hadnt let go of it since that meeting. Recovery is not just for the sober individual, its for all of those people in our lives, too. I often forget how much recovery means to the loved ones who have struggled with us, feared for us, prayed for us, and fought us for the very breath we breathe. As I work with people who are gaining lengths of time in recovery, I see how cherished their daily sobriety becomes. Its a jewel they polish and nurture each moment. But it is to those family members that the treasure of recovery is so precious. They dont take for granted waking each morning after a full night of rested sleep. Peace springing from the stability of a recovering loved one is so poignantly portrayed by the little girl above. She knows the chaos and unpredictability of her mothers life while using. She will carry these memories all of her life. What a blessing that she also knows her mother in recovery. Her attachment to the coin her mothers recovery represents is a concrete symbol of the lifeline her mothers meetings and sponsor is to their family. That small coin is the symbol of the difference between life and death. All of us in recovery cherish these symbols just as this little girl. We pray each day that we never lose the freshness of our sobriety as our recovery lengthens. Yvonne Hess, M.S., LMFT, CAP, is director of Citrus County services for The Centers.

Nasal irrigation and nasal spray is a practice that has been used for thousands of years and currently there are many choices available. Nasal sprays and rinses can relieve allergic and sinus symptoms such as dryness, pressure and nasal congestion. They can help nasal symptoms when you have the flu, cold or upper respiratory infection, thin out thick mucus and postnasal drainage and help clean the nose from environmental things such as dust, smoke fumes, animal dander and pollen. Generally, a nasal irrigation solution consists of water and a small amount of salt. This makes up a mild and soothing solution. It is a good option if the patient is pregnant as opposed to using over-thecounter decongestant sprays which could pose some risk. Devices and formulas are available now to include large-volume devices like the Neti pot to small spray bottles and even variable-pressure devices, depending on the need and desire to remove dried or thick mucus. Timing of the sprays or rinses can vary depending on the patients problems and severity. Generally, an irrigation a couple of times a day is usual, but more frequent use of the spray or rinse may be needed when a patient is not feeling well. I have not seen any serious problems related to nasal spray uses other than overuse, which can dry out the mucosa, but this is usually temporary. When the spray is discontinued, the mucous blanket and moisture return to the mucosa. If one is making a homemade type of irrigation, the one thing that is very important to remember is to use a good water source. This means not using tap water, which could be contaminated with organisms that could cause infection or contain a lot of chlorine or fluoride. Distilled water appears to be much safer and if that is not available, tap water boiled for 20 minutes or more and then cooled down can be used, but is a second choice. Also, it is very important to keep the devices clean. Washing and wiping the devices with a weak soap solution is an option, or maybe even the use of Betadine, which is a product available in the pharmacy. If that is not available, a weak bleach solution of 1 part bleach to 100 parts of water can be substituted. In any case, thorough rinsing with distilled water is important to do as well. If the device you are using has parts that have to be assembled, that means there are nooks and crannies where bacteria and organisms can accumulate. So make sure these areas get cleaned, as well. Sinus irrigations and sprays are a safe and effective method of relieving nasal sinus symptoms and can be safely used with these rules being followed.

Q:I enjoy reading your articles every week in the paper. Your insight is very good and you seem to be compassionate. Hopefully, you can answer a question for me. I have had three wisdom teeth removed and my two front teeth are getting very small due to grinding, I think. I have had two crowns put on other teeth, but they either cracked or broke off and I cant see spending the money again. I see on TV commercials for New Teeth in a day. How in the world can these places possibly do this in a day, and with little or minimal pain as stated in some radio commercials for this process. Can you please explain this process to me, I am sure that I am not the only one with questions. Thank you in advance for your time and the answer. A: Thanks for your question. I, too, think that many people have the same question. I am familiar with the commercial you are talking about. Let me start by saying that what I write here is only my opinion. You can probably talk to different dentists and get different answers each time. I am going to assume you are talking about replacing one tooth with an implant rather than a full set of teeth, based on your initial comments. I will limit my discussion here to this. There is a process utilizing implants where the dentist removes a natural tooth and replaces it with an implant and crown. In order for this to be successful, there are certain criteria that need to be met. It is my opinion that these criteria are rarely met to the point where there can be confidence in a successful outcome, when the goal is teeth in an hour. Some of the criteria are as follows: 1) All of the bone surrounding the tooth has to be maintained through the extraction process. 2) When the implant is placed, initial stability of the implant has to be considerable. 3) The amount of bone available has to be correct in all directions. 4) The tissue surrounding the implant has to be manipulated in a way that leads to a favorable cosmetic result. The above list is only a partial list but covers some of the more important issues. The other thing to note is, though you can have a tooth in the place of the one lost, the case is not finished at that first appointment. The patient will need followup appointments before the case is finalized. In addition, it is also rare that it only takes an hour. Lets face it, marketing is everywhere in our lives and dentistry is not immune to it. Technically, teeth in an hour can be done, but not very often and not truly in an hour. The part that is the most true to fact here is that there can be little pain. Since the bone needs to be maintained the goal is an extremely atraumatic extraction. Combine this with the proper placement of the implant and it can be relatively pain free. As with anything, things can change during a procedure that can affect post surgery pain. If someone is considering this sort of procedure, please be sure you are going to a place where the attention to details is of utmost importance. If you find yourself in a place where things are rushed or your questions are answered in a less than satisfactory way, take a moment to think about whether or not you want your care there. Unfortunately, society has become a place of instant gratification. Though this can be a good thing, there are too many instances where it can certainly be a bad one. I hope I have answered your question. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Praise for the ruling also came from Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., and director of the National Institutes of Health. He said in a statement, The decision represents a victory for all those eagerly awaiting more individualized, gene-based approaches to medical care. The right to control exclusively the use of a patients genes could have made it more difficult to access new tests and treatments that rely on novel technologies that can quickly determine the sequence of any of the estimated 20,000 genes in the human genome. Such approaches form the cornerstone of the rapidly emerging field of personalized medicine, in which diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive strategies can be tailored to each persons unique genetic makeup.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

COMMUNITYPage C4TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Precious PawsADOPTABLE Kitties Special to the ChronicleThe choice of kittens in a variety of colors, personality and cuteness is almost unending. And there are many sweet young adult felines also looking for loving homes. Stop by and see Precious Paws cats and kittens at each of our adoption sites. Kittens and cats also are available for adoption at the Pet Supermarket on State Road 44 in Inverness during regular store hours. The Crystal River Mall adoption center is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The Floral City adoption site at 7360 S. Florida Ave. is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. Call 352726-4700 for information or visit www. preciouspawsflorida.com. Special to the ChronicleIn the four years that Precious Paws Animal Rescue Inc. has been in existence, more than 1,000 animals have found permanent homes. That means that there were 1,000 fewer animals euthanized. The volunteers at Precious Paws are proud of this fact and hope to save many more animals in the future, but cant do it alone. The rescue needs the help of animal lovers who are willing to give of their time. There are many ways pet lovers can help. One is by volunteering time at the adoption center in the Crystal River Mall. This involves caring for the cats and dogs at the center and speaking to and answering questions from the visitors who come by. Volunteers will be taught how to handle paperwork for adoptions. There are 168 hours in a week and approximately 672 hours in a month. Can you spare just four hours either in a week or a month to help this wonderful cause? Stop by the adoption center at the mall and speak to a volunteer. The summer hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Call 352-7264700 for information. Special to the ChronicleThe ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) has announced the accreditation of The Path of Citrus County of Inverness. ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising. The Path of Citrus County joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by more than 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal. When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability. We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to provide a Christian living environment that allows true rehabilitation, said Dan Busby, president of ECFA. Founded in 1992, The Path of Citrus County (www.pathofcitrus.org) seeks to allow for long-term stays so life-changing biblical teachings can take effect. They also encourage the work ethic of those without a home in Citrus County. To learn more about The Path of Citrus County and their stewardship opportunities, visit ServantMatch, ECFAs program that matches volunteers with the stewardship options of ECFA members based on ministry sectors and categories. For information about ECFA, founded in 1979, including information about accreditation and a listing of members, visit www.ECFA.org or call 800-323-9473. Stewards of Gods Earth was the theme of the Florida Conference of United Methodist Womens North Central District Day Apart Spiritual Retreat held at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. It was a day of reflection and fellowship as we hobnobbed with the animals and took a leisurely cruise on the river. Beginning with the hymn, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and the Psalms 8 and the Genesis 1:20-31 creation story, there was directed time for silent meditation on how we are stewards in how we give back what we have been given, how we love, protect and care for everything on our planet. After singing Morning Has Broken, our speaker, Sandy Barton of Bradenton, a docent at the Denver Zoo, related how she had already met Lu, the parks hippo, and they were becoming fast buddies. Fielding questions from UMW members, we learned that hippos can run for very short distances at 15 mph. Natives of Africa, they are vegetarians. At birth they can weigh 500 pounds. Fully grown, females weigh 4,000 pounds and males 5,000 pounds. We sat around designated tables with names of the various animals pictured on our name tags, and interacted all about environmental stewardship. We shared what we had seen in the wild. Some had seen panthers, alligators, bald eagles, otters, flamingoes and bears. We shared our pet experiences and their unique names and behaviors. Some of the names included Romeo for a cat, Overtaker for a dog and Cockapoo for a bird. A pet poll was taken and the oldest cat was 22 years. The oldest dog was 18 years. We learned that most pets live to be 17 years old. We agreed that being a steward is the responsibility of all of us to be good caretakers of the gifts of the environment we have been given, to be good managers and overseers. Another activity was How well do you know what the Bible has to say about the environment? Each table was given a scripture to research and share with the entire group their findings. Our speaker talked at length about the importance of recycling. There is a video eight minutes long, available at storyofstuff.com available through the Florida Conference of United Methodist Women. We were given several eyeopening statistics: There are 300 kinds of shampoos in plastic containers. The power of advertising can make us unhappy with what we have with 3,000 ads in a six-hour period of TV time. Each person generates 4.5 pounds of garbage each day. We were challenged to be good stewards of our stuff and to be good citizens instead of overconsumers. We left with a greater awareness of the way we are blessed to be a blessing as stewards of Gods Earth.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

The purpose is to educate the public on signs of abuse in older persons, such as physical trauma, withdrawal, depression, anxiety and fear of family members, friends or caregivers. Eliminating abuse to older persons is each communitys responsibility and Citrus County is concerned about the risk to older residents who suffer from neglect or are victims of financial, emotional or physical abuse, commissioners said.

TUESDAY, JULY16, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Mark Twain said, A person who wont read has no advantage over one who cant read. That can also apply to bridge. The player who does not pay any attention to the opening lead has no advantage over the player who sees it but fails to work out what information it imparts. Sometimes declarer can work out what to do just by analyzing the opening lead. In this example, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads a fourth-highest spade five? This is surely the most common two-bid auction. It is true that on this deal, three no-trump can be defeated if West is inspired enough to lead a heart, and five diamonds can always be made with a good guess in the trump suit. But if you try to get to five of a minor with two balanced hands opposite each other, you will be a big loser in the long run. Go for the nine-trick game unless you are sure it cannot make. South starts with seven top tricks: two spades, two diamonds and three clubs. And if the diamonds run, there is an overtrick waiting in the wings. But if the diamonds are 3-0, who has the tripleton? Read Wests lead. How many spades did he start with? Since South can see the two, three and four, West must have led from exactly a four-card suit. And if he is void in diamonds, he must have at least five hearts or five clubs and surely would have led from that suit length rules in notrump. So only East can be void in diamonds. Declarer should take the first trick and cash the diamond ace.

PG MotherFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: After my bitter divorce, my son decided to live with his father in another state. I have spent thousands of dollars on airplane tickets, hotels, car rentals and restaurants. I have never forgotten my two grandchildrens birthdays. Heres the rub: To save money, I have traveled alone and stayed with my son. Recently, I stayed for four days. After traveling 1,000 miles, I spent two hours in a shuttle because my son did not pick me up at the airport as promised. When I arrived at their house, there was nothing to eat. I had to ask my son to make something, as I do not feel comfortable in their kitchen. My grandson gave up his bed for me, and the room was a mess (to say the least). His bathroom sink and tub were clogged, and my daughter-inlaw expected me to clean them. I also had to ask for fresh towels. On one of the four nights, they left me alone while my daughter-in-law went to a concert with her girlfriends and stayed overnight, my grandchildren had sleepovers, and my son went to a bar (he is a hardworking alcoholic). When my granddaughter showed me her 8th grade graduation book, she talked about her loving family and mentioned her grandparents on her moms side. (They live close.) She never once mentioned my husband or me. Do I continue to travel all these miles for this type of abuse, or do I go only when I can afford a hotel and car rental? They seem to have busy lives and make no time for this grandma. I Have Feelings, Too. Dear Feelings: Its difficult to be the grandparent who lives far away. Its expensive to travel, so those visits are infrequent. It takes effort to maintain a close relationship, and it sounds as if your son and his wife prefer not to extend themselves, which is sad. You dont have to travel more often than you can afford, and be sure to invite your son and his family to visit you, as well. Then find other ways to stay in touch with the grandchildren Facebook, email, texting, Skype, letters and phone calls. They need to know you better. Dear Annie: I have learned that a college professor at a major university in my area uses obscenities while teaching his classes. He screams these diatribes at the students every day during his lectures. I saw a video of one of his classes and think the university should be informed. This is not how our young people should be taught. Should I report him to someone? Who? Frustrated Alumnus Dear Frustrated: If you think this professors teaching technique poorly represents the university, by all means say something to the dean of his department or the president of the university. Suggest they look into his videos. But understand that its up to the university to determine what action is taken, if any. Dear Annie: I am writing in response to the letter from Loveless and Discouraged, who went through a program for sex addiction and was discouraged that his wife still does not trust him. Good for the husband for trying to save his marriage, but Id like to explain his wifes side of things. I was married for 28 years to a sex addict who tried therapy, relapsed many times and eventually gave up. I wonder whether Loveless realizes the intense emotional damage done to a wife who has been repeatedly lied to and cheated on. She needs more time than he expects to focus on herself and to rebuild intimacy. Has he truly apologized? Has he tried to see this through her eyes? Has he been willing to take tests for STDs to reassure her that her health is not in danger? What is he doing to make sure this never happens again?
