Eleven of Citrus Countys 15 elementary and middle schools dropped one letter grade, according to a report released Friday by the state Department of Education. Forest Ridge Elementary School and Central Ridge Elementary School were the only schools to maintain their A grades from a year ago. Because of the grade drop, Citrus County loses its status as an academically highperforming school district, which it had held for seven straight years. When we saw the preliminary grades, Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The number of top-rated schools in Florida fell sharply again this year as the states students struggle to adjust to a wave of new standards. And the bottom line could have been much worse if state education officials had notStatewide, numbers dip Sam Himmelsuperintendent of schools. District drops to BSee GRADES/ Page A9 See RATINGS/ Page A5 Korean armistice celebrated Longtime volunteer couple leaving county City balks at paying fire fee MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerThe city of Invernesss 7,100 citizens may catch a break on the countys new $54 fire-services fee unless the city council decides to join the effort. County commissioners approved the new fees at a well-attended public hearing Tuesday night. However, both the cities of Crystal River and Inverness are exempt from the fees unless they opt in. Crystal River has its own fire department and pays neither the fireservices tax nor the new fee. Inverness, however, is part of the countys firerescue service and its property owners pay the fire tax. City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said Friday that he met July 18 with county officials to discuss the fire fee, but nothing definitive came of those talks. DiGiovanni said he told county officials the city should be treated as an individual district because its fire costs and needs are much lower than those in rural areas. He said County Attorney Richard Wesch told him the county would send the city a bill for services if it didnt join the municipal services benefit unit, or MSBU. I said, I dont know how thats going to work, DiGiovanni said he told Wesch. Wesch did not return calls for comment Friday. City Attorney Larry Haag, a former longtime county attorney, briefed Frank DiGiovanniInverness city manager. CARLY ZERVIS/For the ChronicleVeterans of the Korean War perform a gun salute in honor of the two recently discovered names of U.S. Army casualties from Citrus County: Pvt. Arthur P. Carlsen, 1st Calvalry Division, and Pfc. Richard G. Sanders, U.S. Army 2nd Infantry. The salute and cere mony at the historic downtown Inverness courthouse were also to honor the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War on July 27, 1953. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerEarly on a damp, humid morning Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse stood on the lawn of the Old Courthouse in Inverness, reading the engraved sign. Holding hands, they both read quietly information they already knew by heart. Pioneer families traversed the wild Florida terrain to settle here in 1887, in the area that became Citrus County, with the construction of a permanent courthouse in the county seat of Inverness in 1912. However, that long preceded the Drinkhouses arrival. It was in 1991, on a whim, that the Drinkhouses traveled to Citrus County and fell in love with the rural area. Like many, two years later they found themselves residents. We took a while to get settled, then we went down to the resource center to find out what we could volunteer to do, Beverly said this week. We always said that when we moved we wanted to give something to the community that we migrated to. Ron hooked into the historical society. For two retired folks, their giving something to the community turned into a six-year endeavor as the historical group was in the infancy stages of restoring the historic courthouse. I was drafted in 1994 to head the fundraising, Beverly said. The courthouse was behind in getting money to match their grant. I didnt know what I was doing, as I had never done any fundraising. I kind of got roped into it, but it was a great project. Beverly spearheaded the pounding of pavement for donations and kept the heat on state lawmakers for grants.

OcalaRabies alert issued for SW Marion Health officials issued a rabies alert for south west Marion County after a raccoon tested positive. The Ocala Star-Banner reported this is the second alert issued this month and the third this year in Marion County. A rabies alert issued July 18 for an area just north of Ocala is still in effect. An alert issued March for northern Marion County expired in May. Officials said all domestic animals should be vaccinated against rabies. They advise people to avoid contact with all wildlife, but especially raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inglis to drop police, fire A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINGLIS The town commission has cemented what was set into motion in March, when citizens in this southern Levy County hamlet voted to scrap their police and fire services and hand the work to the county sheriffs office. Thursday, the Inglis Town Commission voted 3-2 to award the sheriffs office a law enforcement contract that runs through 2017. Commissioners Michael White, Sally Price and Ann Morin voted for the contract while Drinda Merritt and Sherry Ely voted against the measure. The contract calls for the provision of three deputies for the town and one part-time supervisory deputy. The deal also stipulates the following, among other things: The sheriffs office cannot, for financial reasons, supply a law enforcement officer to patrol the town for all 24 hours of the day. The sheriffs office will make all its services available to the town, including K9, traffic enforcement and Citizens on Patrol. The financial terms of the agreement are as follows: 2013-14 $276,000; 2014-15 $276,000; 201516 $281,520, and 2016-17 $287,150.40. The sheriffs office also reserves the right to make requests for financial adjustments should the need arise. If the parties cant agree, the agreement will be terminated. The sheriffs office is responsible for all hiring. Three vehicles, which used to belong to the Inglis Police Department, will be inherited by the LCSO. Efforts to disband the police services in the town had been ongoing for several years but culminated last March, when advocates were elected to a majority of the commission seats and the measure to do away with the department passed overwhelmingly. The contract takes effect Oct. 1. Sheriffs officials had taken a lukewarm posture toward those seeking to disband the police department mainly because of financial considerations and expectations. Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum has insisted his agency will not accept any contract that is for fewer than three years and could not see the feasibility of around-the-clock services. McCallum said at the time right after the election that the cost for 24-hour, seven-day-a-week coverage would require five fulltime deputy positions be added to his office. The first year would be $396,420.50. Thats because there would be some startup costs, he said. The second would go down some to $349,387, and the third would be $361,511. What this does not include is staffing the office in Inglis, McCallum said. For that, you would be adding about $43,000 to each of those years figures. That would cover staffing their building and paying the utilities and those sorts of things. He said the towns police officers are not guaranteed employment with the sheriffs office.

Nonprofit pet clinic Guardian ad Litem training set Aug. 5 Special to the ChronicleSome 1,700 children in Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a supervisor and program attorney. Persons 21 years of age and older (young adults between the ages of 19 and 21 years of age are also eligible, working under the guidance and partnership with a certified volunteer GAL), who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of preservice training. On average, volunteers spend five to 10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. To learn more, call Lynn Sennett at 352-274-5231 or email Lynn.Sennett@ gal.fl.gov. For information and an application, visit www.guardianadlitem.org. The next training begins Monday, Aug. 5, at the Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Ave., Ocala. Town inks contract with Levy County Sheriffs Office StateBRIEFS Belafonte joins with Capitol protestersTALLAHASSEE Famed singer and entertainer Harry Belafonte is calling on Florida Gov. Rick Scott to listen to protesters who have been at the Capitol for nearly two weeks. Protesters upset with the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman want Scott to call a special session so legislators can alter the states selfdefense laws. Scott has refused. Belafonte said Friday that Scott still has a chance to act before the protests intensify and the situation becomes ungovernable. Belafonte, who has never visited Tallahassee before, was part of a large contingent that was chanting and singing in the hallway outside the governors office. Law-enforcement reports showed that 86 people spent the night in the Capitol as part of the protest. Protesters say they are prepared to continue their standoff for weeks.Woman crushed by homemade elevatorWEEKI WACHEE A Tampa Bay area woman was crushed to death by a friends homemade elevator. The Hernando County Sheriffs Office reported that 66-year-old Margaret Elizabeth Harrison went to her friends Weeki Wachee home Tuesday morning. The friend, Jean Blair, had sent the outside elevator to the first floor in anticipation of her friends arrival. But after Harrison didnt show up for more than an hour, Blair called Harrisons boyfriend. Deputies say the boyfriend came over and found Harrison underneath the lift. Officials pronounced her dead at the scene. The elevator had reportedly been built by Blairs husband from a forklift, wood and welded metal. They had never gotten a permit for the device, and building officials have since shut it down. The death has been ruled an accident. More school money means tax increaseTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott and state legislators have traveled the state this year boasting about the extra money they steered toward schools and teachers. But for some homeowners, more money for schools comes with a price: A tax increase this fall. The complicated formula used by the state to match local property tax dollars with state money has required a tax increase for nearly 20 out of the states 67 school districts. The list includes the home counties of Scott and the two leaders of the Legislature. Homeowners are starting to learn about the increases as school boards prepare to adopt budgets for the new school year. For most districts, its a small increase likely to add $20 to $30 more to the tax bill of the owner of a $225,000 home with a homestead exemption. Associated PressBarbara DeVane reaches out to kiss singer, songwriter, actor and social activist Harry Belafonte Jr. as he heads Friday to Gov. Rick Scotts office in the Capitol in Tallahassee. Dream Defenders were joined by Belafonte as they went into their 11th day of a sit-in at Scotts office. From wire reports

Birthday Some of the grateful recipients of your past favors will find a number of ways to repay you in the year ahead. They will go out of their way to help you achieve your social and material goals. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Substantial returns are in the offing from all the effort youve expended on something that has yet to yield fruit. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) One of your most valuable assets will be the ability to motivate others to get off their duffs. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your material aspects continue to look quite encouraging. Follow the same formula that youve been using and you should be able to get a profit through both direct and indirect action. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although a friend of long standing might come to you for help, ironically, you could be the party wholl derive the greatest benefits from it. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) To get others to be more effective, let them think your good ideas are theirs. By doing so, youll be the one who will end up with the greatest success. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Go out of your way to touch base with some old friends. Owing to something new thats stirring, its to your advantage to maintain as many strong relationships as you can. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Youre still in a very fortunate cycle where benefits can be derived from handling tasks and assignments as effectively as possible. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) This is an excellent day to enter into serious negotiations, provided each party is as concerned about protecting the rights of others as they are their own privileges. Aries (March 21-April 19) You have a natural ability to take something thats old and transform it into something far more useful. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Something good is likely to happen that should strengthen the bonds between you and your special someone. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Youre on a productive roll when it comes to wrapping up deals, but itll be up to you to take full advantage of favorable circumstances. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If at all possible, do not delegate any important assignments to a subordinate. TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Saturday, July 27, the 208th day of 2013. There are 157 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On July 27, 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. On this date: In 1866, Cyrus W. Field finished laying out the first successful underwater telegraph cable between North America and Europe. A previous cable in 1858 burned out after only a few weeks use. In 1909, during the first official test of the U.S. Armys first airplane, Orville Wright flew himself and a passenger, Lt. Frank Lahm, above Fort Myer, Va., for one hour and 12 minutes. In 1940, Bugs Bunny made his official debut in the Warner Bros. animated cartoon A Wild Hare. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. Anti-government extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing. Ten years ago: Comedian Bob Hope died in Toluca Lake, Calif. at age 100. Five years ago: Two bombs targeting civilians at a packed square in Istanbul, Turkey, killed 17 people. One year ago: Britain opened its Olympic Games in a celebration of Old England and new, even cheekily featuring a stunt double for Queen Elizabeth II parachuting with James Bond into Olympic Stadium.

A California judge delayed making a decision Friday on whether former child star Amanda Bynes should be put under the conservatorship of her parents. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser said there was no rush to act on the request by Bynes parents because the actress is under a two-week psychiatric hold at a hospital. Reiser scheduled a hearing on the issue Aug. 9 and said he also wants to meet one-on-one with Bynes before making a decision. The 27-year-old actress behavior has become increasingly bizarre over the past year. Bynes was put under the psychiatric hold Monday after authorities said she set a fire on the driveway of a home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, where she grew up. In May, Bynes was arrested in New York for allegedly throwing a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment. Police had come to the apartment to investigate a complaint that she had been smoking marijuana in the buildings lobby. Last year, Bynes was charged in Los Angeles with driving on a suspended license, the license having been suspended after she was charged with driving under the influence and misdemeanor hit-and-run. Bynes, who was only 13 when she landed her own hit variety program, The Amanda Show on the Nickelodeon cable network, went on to star in the TV series What I Like About You and several movies, including What a Girl Wants, Hairspray and Shes the Man.Garth Brooks is a new grandfatherNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Miley Cyrus, the 20-year-old actress-singer, is getting a onehour documentary not yet titled on the MTV network. The announcement was made Friday by MTV Programming President Susanne Daniels at the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. Cameras will follow Cyrus as she works on her new album, which is due out later this year. Her current single, We Cant Stop, is No. 2 on Billboards Hot 100 chart.

research and accountability showed that some of the school grades would drop, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said Friday. Now that we received the grades from the state, our staff on Monday will begin to reevaluate everything to look into the grades and information that we received. Our focus every year is that it is based on every individual child that he or she at least received a years worth of learning and teaching. Grades for elementary and middle schools are based primarily on standardized testing results. High school grades, which include data on graduation rates, are usually released in December. The state Board of Educations recent policy allowed schools to drop no more than one letter grade. This drop protection benefited eight of the 11 schools. We are beginning to see significant shifts in the way the tests are scored, school board member Pat Deutschman said. This is all about test scoring. Its not about student performance. The tests havent changed that much; its what it takes to pass the tests. Those numbers go up, so you have the same schools, teachers, students and curriculum. This year they are an A next year they are a C. What changed? The tests changed. This is an indication of a test that failed the students (rather) than the students that failed the tests. Citrus Springs Middle School received an incomplete grade. Student achievements exceeded 10 percent; therefore, the state evaluates the schools test score results to ensure the growth is reflective of student learning. When the irregularities are resolved or founded as sufficient data, the school grade will be assigned and released, Himmel said. Himmel said she isnt yet sure what impact the loss of a high-performing status means to the district. Being high-performing entitles the district to initiate classes sooner in the school year than other districts. Therefore, the semester ends at Christmas break, allowing students to be tested on material before the break. The classification also coincides with students taking dualenrollment courses at the College of Central Florida. Himmel said losing this classification does not guarantee the starting date of 2014-15 school year and dual enrollment will be affected. The district applies every year for a two-year permit to initiate classes in early August. The district is verifying that this status is still in effect. Deutschman said she would suggest teachers not pay attention to the drop in grades. We see consistency high level and high quality in our schools, she said. These test scores do not reflect that big of a change was made over night. I know our schools over night did not stop teaching. Our kids did not stop performing at the same level that they always have.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, JULY27, 2013 A5 000FIP2 000FF3W Lic. & Insured 352-400-3188 YOUR INTERLOCKING BRICK PAVER SPECIALIST IS IT TIME TO REFINISH YOUR POOL?

The news came as little surprise Monday night to officials and residents as Richard Powell of Powell & Jones CPA told the Dunnellon City Council. Powell unveiled his companys findings, which took almost two months to complete, to a packed house at city hall. More than 60 residents, both from the city and Rainbow Springs, came out in force to hear the news. The study revealed what most had already known Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is failing, and continuing to maintain the system would put it in even more financial jeopardy in November, when it must pay Regions Bank more than $1 million in bond obligations. Its not surprising, but its shocking, Mayor Nathan Whitt said about the findings. The city must now notify state officials as to the status of the financial quagmire its in; however, it does not mean the city is in a full-fledged state of financial distress, which would require assistance from Gov. Rick Scotts office. In putting the state on notice, Eddie Esch, interim city manager, said the city will have 45 days to prepare a plan showing how officials will guide the city onto a path of financial stability. Both Esch and John Pierpont, of Pierpont Consulting LLC, told the council they will have a plan together to present to state officials within 30 days. Esch also said the city has reached out to a company that assists cities with handling bankruptcy or financial reconstruction. Officials, Esch said, plan to ask for assistance with financial reconstruction. Now the city council is faced with the daunting task of selling Greenlight Communications as soon as possible, Pierpont said. In May, Pierpont Consulting provided the council with three options to assist with the future of Greenlight: The first option was to restructure the enterprise operation and perhaps eliminate services such as cable television. The second option was to create a public-private partnership that would allow the city to have a vested interest in the system; however, allow the program to continue to grow with outside financial support. The third option: sell the system outright and get what money it could for the fiber-to-the-home program. This information is a very significant game changer, Pierpont told the council. This information changes everything we presented, dramatically. This is without a doubt why we must move forward with an accelerated sale of (Greenlight). Currently, the fiber-to-thehome program has fewer than 500 customers and is operating off reserve funds. Key in the sale, Pierpoint told the council and audience, is customers. The more customers Greenlight has, the more the city can sell the system for. Pierpoint told the council there are three companies interested in purchasing the system outright. However, to sell the system will take time, though he pointed out the city could request that whatever company intends to purchase it must take over the day-to-day operations immediately. We do this and we do this quickly, said Pierpoint, whose consulting fee will be 3 percent of the sale price of the system. When we transfer the system, we want to transfer the operation of the system. We dont want current customers being left in the dark. In addition to selling the system, therell be plenty of work to do on the legal side, Pierpont said. Overall, the city is on the hook for more than $12 million for the ambitious undertaking the Dunnellon City Council approved in November 2010, when officials secured $7.3 million in funding from Regions Bank in Orlando. By using those funds, officials said, the city is breaking the covenants of the bond. Though not illegal, Esch said the bank could choose to come down hard on officials. I cannot see them doing it, but thats not to say they wont, he said. The city is also committed to paying more than $1 million for a lease agreement for its headend equipment. Additionally, the city borrowed more than $2 million from the reserves of the water/sewer system, which drained all of its reserve funds, as well as used bond monies used to purchase the Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls utility systems in December 2011. Well have to negotiate loan payoffs with the bank, payoffs for the head-end system, he said. We have a lot of work to do. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger told Esch and Pierpont whatever occurs in the coming weeks, its pivotal to make sure that information is made public. This whole affair has been nonsense, she said of the financial debacle. Whatever happens, I want everything on the table before anything is done. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans asked Powell if, through scouring through the numbers and expenditures, if he noticed if any illegal activity occurred, such as embezzlement or misappropriation of funds occurred. The answer is no, Powell said, noting the main problem stemmed from the 2013 Fiscal Year Budget which indicated Greenlight was expected to generate more than $4.5 million in revenue. That never happened, so as you can see where the loans and other revenues covered that significant shortfall. Three of the five council members Evans, Fleeger and Lynne McAndrew remained adamant they were kept in the dark about the true state of finances not only within Greenlight Communications, but the city as a whole. You were here, you approved these expenses, said Steve Swett, a Rainbow Springs resident. You did it. Eddie EschDunnellon interim city manager. John Pierpontof Pierpont Consulting.

We had a lot of public interest because people had a lot of pride in the restoration of the Old Courthouse, Ron said. Otherwise, it was going to be torn down and made into a parking lot. We just fought tooth and nail to prevent that. The dust settled in 2000 and the $2.4 million restoration was officially completed. Many locals credit the Drinkhouses for new life being born in the aging structure. Because of their diligence and devotion, theChroniclenamed Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse its 2000 Citizens of the Year. History, however, is not their only passion. In 1994, Ron began writing a weekly wine column for the Chronicle. I want the reader to learn something that he or she did not know before, Ron said. I try to keep it very simple and basic without a lot of big words. There is a wine mystique out there for many. It is that mystique that I try to overcome. His advice to those unfamiliar with details pertaining to wine is to pop a cork. However, at the bottom of my column they are going to have to change my residence from Oak Ridge to Jacksonville, Ron said. Thats right, they are saying goodbye to the community and joining family in Jacksonville. It is time to get closer to family, Beverly said, teary-eyed. We have enjoyed Citrus County tremendously and we hope the community feels that we have given something to them, too. We have met a lot of nice people and made a lot of good friends. We will miss them. The Drinkhouses can be contacted online at ronoct9@aol.com.

Crystal River (Hwy. 486, just east of Hwy. 44) www.outdoorpowerplace.com 000FGJ7 adopted a last-minute safety net provision that softened the final grades. The new A to F grades released Friday for elementary and middle schools show that the number of A-rated schools fell nearly 39 percent this year, while the number of Frated schools more than doubled. Grades for high schools wont be released until late this year. Last year, more than 1,200 schools received the A grade that is used by parents and businesses to identify top-rated schools. This year, the preliminary grades resulted in a drop to just 760 schools with A grades. Top education officials insisted that the changes that kicked in this year including a raise in required writing test scores led to the dramatic decline. Other recent changes include incorporating results from new end-of-course exams. This years school grades are indicative of the fact that Florida has continued to raise standards, said Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. Each year, the state hands out A to F grades that are used to reward top schools and sanction those that get failing marks. The system has been in place for more than a decade and was the centerpiece of changes first put in place under then-Gov. Jeb Bush. Some school superintendents have complained that the current school grades do not reflect true academic performance because of the impact of all the recent changes. Miami-Dade schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho on Friday tweeted out the drop in grades was artificial and that unreasonable changes to the formula have undermined the grading system. That point of view was echoed by the head of the states teachers union. Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, argued that the flurry of changes had rendered the grades meaningless as a comparison of school progress. Lower school grades dont reflect a drop in achievement by students, said Ford. They are the result of numerous changes in the grading system Bennett has defended the need to include the tougher standards because Florida is transitioning in 2014 to a new set of common core standards that could prove even tougher than those in place now. Bennett, however, said that those schools that received F grades are showing that they are need of help. Still, the number of Frated schools could have been higher. Earlier this month, the State Board of Education voted 4-3 to tweak the formula that allowed as many as 150 schools to avoid getting an F grade. The board adopted a provision recommended by Bennett that prevented any school from dropping more than one letter grade at time. The decision to change the grading standards was done over the protest of some officials who said the move would confuse parents and mask the true performance of many schools. GRADESContinued from Page A1 the city council in May about the countys plans for an MSBU. He noted the only way it could include the city was if the city council approved an ordinance opting in to the MSBU. No one from county government presented the proposal to the city council and the council never took a vote either, DiGiovanni said. He said he doubts Inverness residents would receive the same benefit of paying a higher rate for fire protection than in rural areas that are in need of the improvements that the new fee will bring. What we were questioning was being lumped in with the sprawl areas that drive this thing up, DiGiovanni said. They look at every piece of property equitably, which we dont. He said he will likely recommend the city council hire its own consultant to recommend what city homeowners and other property owners should pay for fire services. Coincidentally, city residents will also benefit from a drop in the fire tax, which county officials plan to offset with the fire fee. Except for Crystal River, the fire property tax is extended countywide. FEEContinued from Page A1 Southern states gird for fight on voter laws Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas Stricter voter identification laws, redrawn political maps fortifying Republican majorities, reducing early voting: States with GOP strongholds intensified these efforts under President Barack Obama and proclaimed victory at the Supreme Court. Now the Obama administration is signaling plans to drag some of these mostly Southern states with histories of minority discrimination into rematches after the high court knocked down a major piece of the Voting Rights Act. First up is Texas, which rushed to enact a tough voter ID law and new redistricting maps after the justices 5-4 ruling last month. North Carolina is considered to be another possible target of the administration, and officials in Alabama are also digging their heels in for another possible round with the Justice Department. Other states also are watching closely. You can imagine a very aggressive Justice Department trying to get the bar as low as possible and demanding that states be bailed in back under former voting rights protections, said Rebecca Green, co-director of the election law program at the College of William & Mary. Predictions that North Carolina is on deck grew late Thursday after its Legislature sent Republican Gov. Pat McCrory sweeping voting law changes, including the end of a popular program that registers high school students to vote in advance of their 18th birthday. Theres also a strict voter ID measure, slashing early voting by a week and the elimination of same-day registration. State elections statistics show black voters use early voting in heavy numbers and that more than 300,000 of the states residents dont have a drivers license, many of them poor and elderly. North Carolina conservatives call the moves voter integrity safeguards and were confident they will stand. I think what weve seen over the past several years is the Obama administration politicize the voting rights section in ways weve never seen before, said North Carolina state Sen. Phil Berger, the top Republican in the chamber. I do not think they are a non-partisan or neutral arbiter. North Carolina gave final approval to the measures only hours after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced he will ask a federal court to tether Texas back to provisions that require permission to change voting laws. Known as preclearance, the process had been mandatory in all or parts of 15 mostly Southern states with a history of discrimination, until the Supreme Court decision last month wiped out the preapproval. Holder called the decision flawed and said Thursday he will use every tool at our disposal in mounting a new fight over voter protection. He did not name other states in the sights of the Justice Department but vowed that Texas will not be our last. Election law experts say Texas presents the easiest but by no means assured path for the administration because a Washington federal court last year found the state to have engaged in intentional discrimination. One example cited by judges was black congressional members in Texas having economic drivers such as sporting arenas freshly carved out of their districts, while no such surgery was performed on those belonging to white incumbents. That finding makes it easier to apply Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act, a tactic rarely employed because the same effect was formerly achieved through the more muscular section of the law that is now eliminated. Holder has built his case against Texas around Section 3. Green said the Justice Department faces a tougher road in other states without what amounts to a smoking gun, such as judicial findings of intentional discrimination. She pointed toward North Carolina, where she said an argument could be made that its new election laws were driven not by race but partisanship, which is not protected under the Voting Rights Act. Associated PressTexas state Sen. Juan Chuy Hinojosa looks at maps on display prior to a Senate Redistricting committee hearing, in Austin, Texas. Attorney General Eric Holder says Texas is the first place that he will intervene to defend against what he calls attacks on the voting rights of minorities, but it is also the only state where the federal government has a clear opportunity to get involved, experts say.

Mysterious giant magnet has rock-star status Associated PressGLEN ELLYN, Ill. It skipped tolls. It had a Twitter hashtag and a GPS tracker. It even posed for photos with groupies. The 50-foot-wide, 15-ton electromagnet attracted a sensation wherever it went during its slow, delicate 3,200-mile journey from New York to suburban Chicago. The landand-sea trip culminated when scientists threw a rock stars welcome for the mysterious, shrinkwrapped cargo on Friday as it arrived at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory to help study blazing-fast particles. Oh look, they found a flying saucer! retired software developer Chris Otis recalled thinking when he saw the massive, disc-shaped device when it made a pit-stop in a Costco parking lot. Otis used his cellphone to take photos as he and others marveling the contraption wondered what would happen if it suddenly went live. Electromagnets need an electric current to work. I figure somebody at Fermilab is going to plug the damn thing in, turn it on and my watch is going to stop running, everybodys hearing aides are going to sail across the room, Otis said with a laugh. I have no idea. Turn it on and the Martians will hone in on it. Fermilab officials plan to use the magnet in a physics experiment called Muon g-2 that will study subatomic particles at their lab in Batavia, outside Chicago. The experiment will study the properties of muons, subatomic particles that live only 2.2 millionths of a second. The results of the experiment could create new discoveries in the realm of particle physics, said Chris Polly, manager of the Muon g-2 project at Fermilab. The hulking magnet is a hand-me-down from New York, where it was built in the 1990s with aluminum and steel by scientists at the Brookhaven National Lab on eastern Long Island. It has superconducting coils inside and, at the time it was built, was the largest electromagnet in the world. Brookhaven scientists no longer had a need for the electromagnet, and shipping it to the Midwest for about $3 million was cheaper than the alternative. Constructing an entirely new electromagnet could have cost as much as $30 million, Polly estimated. In any case, at least they didnt have to pay tolls on the parts of the journey that took it over land. Weve been assured that we dont have to pay tolls, but were waiting to see if we get the violation notice in the mail. Itd be pretty hard to dispute, said Fermilab spokesman Andre Salles, who was among the magnets traveling companions for about 10 days of the trip. Moving the thing, however, was in some ways as complicated and as delicate a maneuver as building it. It could not be taken apart or twisted more than about an eighth of an inch without irreparably damaging the coils, Polly said. It started its trip in late June, floating by barge down the East Coast into the Gulf of Mexico where it outran a tropical depression then up the Mississippi River, where it was photographed drifting past St. Louis arch on its way into Illinois. We had to hurry up and get going through the Gulf of Mexico and really have the tugboat pour it on, Terry Emmert Jr., vice president of Emmert International, said while recalling the race to avoid the storm. His company moved the magnet across the country. Earlier in the journey, it spent almost a week docked in Norfolk, Va., because of bad weather, but the team traveling with it found a welcome diversion. The port happened to be across the street from a minor league baseball stadium, so the barge crew spent the whole week there, Salles said. Just south of Chicago, it was hauled out of the water and strapped onto a specially made 16-axel flatbed truck for its final leg. It traveled at a mere 5 to 15 mph, with a behemoth bumper sticker informing puzzled on lookers that it was Driving discovery in particle physics. It was a night owl that traveled after dark when roads werent as crowded, staging during the day at a Costco parking lot in suburban Bolingbrook and at a forest preserve. Thankfully, no damage was done along the way. Associated PressMIAMI For the first time in history, federal health officials said Friday they will ban certain types of Medicare and Medicaid providers in three highfraud cities from enrolling in the taxpayer-funded programs for the poor as part of an effort to prevent scams. The strict moratoriums, which start Tuesday, give federal health officials unprecedented power to choose any region and industry with high fraud activity and ban new Medicare and Medicaid providers from joining the programs for six months. The administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the agency is targeting providers of home health care in eight counties in the Miami and Chicago areas. All ambulance providers would be banned in eight counties in the Houston area. The moratorium, which was first reported by The Associated Press, will also extend to Childrens Health Insurance Program providers in the same areas, agency administrator Marilyn Tavenner said in a statement. Its unclear how many providers will be shut out of the programs. There were 662 home health agencies in Miami-Dade in 2012 and the ratio of home health agencies to Medicare beneficiaries was 1,960 percent greater in Miami Dade County than other counties, according to figures from federal health officials. South Florida, long known as ground-zero for Medicare fraud, has also had several high-profile prosecutions involving that industry. In February, the owners and operators of two Miami home health agencies were sentenced for their participation in a $48 million Medicare fraud scheme. The number of home health providers in Cook County, Ill., increased from 301 to 509 between 2008 and 2012. There were 275 ambulance suppliers in Harris County, Texas, in 2012. The ratio of providers to patients in both regions was also several hundred times greater than in other counties, federal health officials said. Top Senate Republicans have criticized the agency for not using the powerful moratoriums sooner as a tool to combat an estimated $60 billion a year in Medicare fraud. Senators Chuck Grassley, who is the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, and Orrin Hatch, who is the ranking Republican on the Finance Committee, sent a letter to federal health officials in 2011 urging them to use moratoriums. While its certainly better late than never, its unfortunate that it took CMS three years to use the tools its had to protect seniors, Hatch said in a statement Friday, adding he hoped to see more action like this. Officials for the Department of Health and Services inspector general lobbied hard to ensure moratorium power was included under the Affordable Care Act as the Obama administration focuses on cleaning up fraud on the front end by preventing crooks from getting into the program in the first place. In the past, federal health officials tried to stall new provider applications from being processed, hoping to slow the number flocking to high-fraud sectors. But when providers inevitably complained, the agency had to process their paperwork. The federal agency can also revoke the IDs of suspicious providers, but those are temporary and many companies are able to reenroll later or enroll under a different name.A10SATURDAY, JULY27, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION Home 50 years and newer.

Interestrates Stocks eke out tiny gains Friday Associated PressNEW YORK A mixed batch of earnings results gave investors little direction on Friday as traders began looking ahead to a packed schedule next week. The stock market slumped in early trading, climbed steadily the rest of the day, then ended little changed. Volume was thin as traders prepared for a deluge of potentially market-moving events next week: a Federal Reserve meeting, the governments monthly employment report and much more. Traders seem to be erring on the side of caution today, said Jeffrey Kleintop, the chief market strategist for LPL Financial. Expedia plunged 27 percent, the worst fall in the Standard & Poors 500 index. The online travel agency reported earnings late Thursday that badly missed analysts expectations. Higher costs were the main culprit. Expedia lost $17.80 to fall to $47.20. The Standard & Poors 500 index inched up 1.40 points, or 0.08 percent, to 1,691.65. The index ended the week with a tiny loss, the first this month. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 3.22 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 15,558.83. The Nasdaq composite index edged up 7.98 points, or 0.2 percent, to 3,613.16. Its halftime in the second-quarter earnings season, and corporate profits are shaping up better than some had feared. Analysts forecast that earnings for companies in the S&P 500 increased 4.5 percent over the same period in 2012, according to S&P Capital IQ. At the start of July, they predicted earnings would rise 2.8 percent. Nearly seven out of every 10 companies have surpassed Wall Streets profit targets. FDA proposes rules for safer imported foods Associated PressWASHINGTON Chances are that about 15 percent of the food you eat more if your diet includes lots of fruits, vegetables and cheese comes from abroad, and the government is taking steps now to make it safer. New rules proposed Friday by the Food and Drug Administration would make U.S. food importers responsible for ensuring that their suppliers are handling and processing food safely. Imported fruit and cheese has been responsible for many recent outbreaks, including 153 recent Hepatitis A illnesses linked to a frozen berry mix sold at Costco as well as four deaths last year that were linked to listeria in Italian cheese. Imported fruits or vegetables are also the top suspect in an ongoing outbreak of cyclosporiasis, a gastrointestinal infection that has so far sickened 321 people in 13 states. Other illnesses in the past several years have been linked to imported papayas, mangoes and nuts and spices used as ingredients. An estimated 3,000 people die from foodrelated illnesses every year. The proposed rules, required by a sweeping food safety law passed by Congress in 2010, are meant to establish better checks on what long has been a scattershot effort to guard against unsafe food imported from more than 150 countries. Only around 2 percent of that food is inspected by the government at ports and borders. The guidelines would require U.S. food importers to verify that the foreign companies they are importing from are achieving the same levels of food safety required in this country. The government estimates that the rules, which would also improve audits of food facilities abroad, could eventually cost the food industry up to $472 million annually. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg used the frozen berry illnesses, linked to pomegranate seeds from Turkey, as an example of an outbreak that could have been prevented if the new rules were in place. She said it illustrates the growing complexity of the food supply. FDA investigators had to look at berries from several different countries that were included in the mix before they zeroed in on the Turkish seeds as the probable source of the illnesses. Hamburg and other FDA officials say the rules show a major shift in thinking in the way the government works to keep food safe. Like rules for domestic farmers and food companies released earlier this year, the idea is to make businesses more responsible for the safety of the food they are selling or importing by proving they are using good food safety practices. They might do that by documenting basic information about their suppliers cleanliness, testing foods or acquiring food safety audits. If they fail to verify the food is safe, the FDA could stop shipments of their food. Currently, the government does little to ensure that companies are trying to prevent food safety problems but generally waits and responds to outbreaks after they happen. Requiring better prevention was the intent when Congress passed the bill. But since then, the law has run into several obstacles, including FDA delays in issuing the rules, a lack of congressional funding and increasing opposition from some rural members of Congress who represent worried farmers. A farm bill passed in the House this month included an amendment sponsored by Rep. Dan Benishek, R-Mich., that would delay all of the food safety rules. Farmers and importers have expressed concern that the rules will require too much time, cost and paperwork. FDA regulators say the new rules are necessary as the food system becomes more complex and more global. Food often stops in several locations and passes through many different hands in a matter of days before it hits grocery shelves. And a lack of funding has given the FDA little oversight over what is being produced. The agency inspects most food companies in the United States only every five to 10 years, and it does even fewer inspections abroad. The food safety law requires the agency to step up those foreign inspections, which jumped from 300 facilities in 2010 to 1,300 last year, according to the FDA. But that is still a just a fraction of the companies that import to the United States, and limited resources may mean the number of inspections wont continue to increase. The import safety proposal doesnt include oversight for meat, which is mostly produced domestically and is regulated by the Agriculture Department, or seafood, which is already subject to regulations on import safety. About 80 percent of the seafood Americans eat is imported. The rules would also exempt smaller importers that have less than $500,000 in sales annually. The domestic food safety rules proposed in January would require U.S. farms and food processors to take new precautions against contamination such as making sure workers hands are washed, irrigation water is clean and livestock stay out of fields. Food manufacturers will have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean. The food industry, aware of the toll major outbreaks can have on sales, has been supportive of the FDA food safety proposals and worked with Congress to pass the law three years ago. A statement from the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the industrys main trade group, said the rules serve as a role model for what can be achieved when the private and public sectors work together to achieve a common goal.

Bring this to a voteI went to the fire meeting on July 23 to explain that the county cannot afford these taxes at this time, that they needed to look within the budget. Bring it up to the voters; let them vote on it. Lets try to find the money to help the firefighters. There are many libraries, there are many parks that people dont use and we need to close them. Most of the kids today and most of the young adults, including myself, a middle-age adult you use computers, you use tablets and iPhones, you can read a book on a tablet, you can watch a movie, you can get a magazine, you can get some news.County is brokeCitrus Countys broke. Its time that the county commissioners start cutting back and authorize no new spending or any special project spending or any expansion spending and move all the government workers to four-day weeks just like federal government has. Its time we see some responsibility out of these folks before we have to re-elect new ones.Duped againWell, Citrus County citizens were duped again. Three commissioners voted for a 30 percent millage tax increase and put a $54 extra fee onto every resident. This is pathetic. Do something, citizens.Thank you Adams, BaysThank you, Scott Adams; thank you, Rebecca Bays, for standing by the citizens of Citrus County. You are the only two that took an interest in our problems. Thank you.We will lose our homesWell, I might have known the county commissioners voted 3-2 to pass the millage hike a ridiculous 30 percent hike All theyre caring about is giving and padding their pocketbooks along with the other county employees We pay the same prices out here as the rest of you all do. We dont get raises, so why are we having to pay a higher tax millage of a 30 percent increase along with fire protection needs to have volunteer fire departments come out here and want donations on top of that every year? So what gives? You want the taxpayers to go broke and lose their homes and end up in shelters and have to go to food pantries in order to get groceries just because Brad Thorpe and the county commissioners want a 30 percent tax increase? How absurd. OPINION Page A12SATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 Time not right for tax increasesI also attended both meetings regarding the fire fee and the budget hearing and I, too, was disgusted and appalled, but not by Mr. (Scott) Adams. To submit such a letter regarding Mr. Adams was disrespectful to him personally and for his position as a commissioner, who along with commissioner (Rebecca) Bays voted against the fire fee and the 30 percent tax hike. Of all the information that was given at these meetings, the one thing someone comments on is gum chewing? It seems one would be more concerned if the fire department is so short-staffed, who was at the fire stations while more than 75 of his staff were at the fire tax meeting in uniform, with all their county vehicles and more than 98 sheriffs staff at the county budget hearing Tuesday. If these vehicles are in such dire shape and need to be replaced, why are they being driven to these meetings? Were these employees being paid while they were at these meetings and who paid for the gas? There was nothing casual about this meeting. It seems one would be more concerned about the request from Sheriff Dawsy for yet still more money for new equipment along with a pay raises when the good people of Citrus County are doing without to make ends meet just to exist. The people that are lucky enough to have a job are making less money than they did years ago. I do believe the police and fire staff deserve the raises along with the county staff workers, but the time is not right. Thank you, Commissioner Adams and Bays, for voting no on both the budget and the fire tax and listening to the all the citizens who showed up for this meeting. Desiree Smith Brainerd InvernessShould have stayed with volunteersI was a volunteer firefighter for 42 years in my hometown and a chief officer for five years. I started wintering in Citrus County just prior to the paid fire department being organized. My feelings at the time were that the county commissioners were making a mistake. As soon as you try to mix volunteer and paid firefighters, you start to lose the volunteers. Therefore, the equipment starts responding with an inadequate number of firefighters to handle a fire when arriving at the scene. This is still a rural area, and rural areas do fine with volunteer fire departments. Rural areas dont have the tax base to support paid fire departments, and thats what the current commissioners are learning. In my opinion, Citrus County was not ready for a paid fire department and should have stayed with the volunteers for a few more years.Robert E. Newhall former fire chief BYDOUGLASCOHN ANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONThirty-one years ago, Princess Diana thrilled the British public and the world with the first glimpse of her firstborn son, William. Diana was 20 years old, and the years that followed were mostly unhappy ones, ending in her premature death in a car chase. Williams wife, Kate, is 31 years old, and he has chosen well. The public loves her, and when the young couple appears with their newborn son, they are the embodiment of the modern monarchy the royal family has worked hard to build, learning from their mistakes with Diana, and with Prince Charles. Those who wanted to do away with the monarchy have been silenced. Polls show the British public by an overwhelming majority wants it to endure. The tourist benefits are obvious, but there are other benefits that Americans dont tend to notice. The monarchy is the physical symbol of the country, the one institution, and the one person the Queen around which everyone can rally. God save the Queen conveys the message. Americans have an eagle, a majestic symbol, but we dont say, God bless our bald eagle, and chances are not every school child in the U.S. relates to this part of their heritage. In England, everybody knows everything about the Queen, and the royal family. The concept of a living symbol is not unlike religion; its something to hold onto when times are tough, and the royal family has been assiduous in protecting that role. During World War II, the King and Queen stayed in Buckingham Palace in the heart of London, standing with the people. This was no small thing. More than 40,000 people died in London during the Blitz. Every family who was able sent their children out of the city, but not the Queen, who rejected advice from the Cabinet to send her two daughters to Canada. The children wont go without me. I wont leave the King. And the King will never leave. When King George died in 1952, their daughter, Elizabeth became Queen. She was 25 years old. Over a 60-year reign, she has handled herself with typical British reserve, departing from the script just once when she dubbed 1992, her 40th anniversary as Queen, annus horribilis. That was the year Windsor Castle burned and the British public wasnt sure they wanted to pay for the reconstruction, two of her four children were separating and divorcing, and a tell-all book, Princess Diana: Her True Story, exposed all the unhappiness in Dianas marriage to Prince Charles with X-rated details and tapes to follow. It is a tribute to Elizabeth and to the two boys that Diana and Charles brought into the world that the monarchy is now fully recovered, and looking ahead to a bright future with William and Kate. If you asked the British public who they would like to see inherit the throne, it would be these two, especially now that theyve had their first child. Is it likely in the near future, or even possible? The trend among European monarchs now is to abdicate and the reason is longevity. Kings and Queens want to turn over the keys to the castle before their sons and daughters are senior citizens themselves. The 79-year-old King of Belgium just abdicated for his 53year-old son, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abruptly announced she was stepping down three days short of her 75th birthday, turning over the throne to the oldest of her three sons. Prince Charles is 64 and deeply unpopular with the British public. In deference to Diana, an icon in death, his wife Camilla would not receive the title Queen, should he ascend to the throne. The question is whether Elizabeth, keenly aware of how the monarchy is regarded, would risk turning it over to her son or whether she would abdicate only if he relinquishes his right to the throne, and turns it over to William. Its a family drama with implications for a nations identity. Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington Merry-Go-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

In what was the bureaucratic equivalent of using a fine-point pen and a steady hand to turn an F into a B, the state Board of Education voted July 16 to extend the use of an ad hoc safety net implemented last year which prevents public schools annual state-issued letter grades from falling more than a full letter per school. The grades theoretically assess the states public schools based on FCAT scores and, for high schools, graduation rates, SAT results and participation and performance in college-level courses. The system rewards high-scoring schools with funds and levies punitive measures against flagging schools. For perennially underperforming schools, those measures can include being given the option to shut down, surrender control to the state or a private firm, convert to a charter school or submit plans for reform to the state. The move, the majority of the board reasoned, is necessary because recent tweaks to the ever-changing equation used to calculate grades would result in a significant increase in the number of schools receiving a grade of F. The decision preserves the carrot for highperforming schools and spares failing schools the stick. In an appallingly transparent attempt to legitimize overriding a system that produced results no one would like, the Florida Department of Education issued a statement claiming the boards action maintains the high standards that have raised Floridas national standing while preparing for the transition to the 2014-15 implementation of Common Core State Standards. The move makes a certain amount of sense, but its logic impugns the very standards FLDOE claims it preserves by revealing the grading scheme for what it is: A caricature of accountability based heavily on factors that have little to do with student achievement, tied to the political winds and beholden only to bureaucratic expectations. Students, no doubt, would love such a mulligan. All theyll get is the message.

Serving Citrus for over 35 years Repairs, Service, Parts Any Make or Model Letters to THE EDITOR Disappointed in your voteDear Mrs. (Rebecca) Bays and Mr. (Scott) Adams: My name is Linda Tillis, and in the spirit of full disclosure, my husband and I are registered Republicans and I am a 911 dispatcher for Citrus County. I spoke before the previous board meeting (prior to this past Tuesday) and you and I exchanged a few words during a break at the meeting. I am writing you today to tell you how disappointed I am with your recent vote. The additional tax in question with this vote was not some frivolous, feelgood idea. The safety of citizens in this county depends on the ability of the fire and sheriff departments to do its job. These good men and women are also citizens of the county. They live here, raise families here and put their lives on the line every day for the rest of the citizens. They also have to live on budgets and cut costs to make ends meet. When you voted against a tax that would supply them with the proper tools to do their job and the means to keep their families solvent, your vote was a slap in the face. The fire department is working under dire conditions with equipment that is as much as 20 years old, which leaves Citrus County liable for the safety of those fine men and women. The employees of the sheriffs office have not received a raise in five years. No fire personnel should ever make that trip to a fire and wonder if this is the day their equipment will fail. No deputy or dispatcher should ever have to do a 12-hour shift trying to save lives and have to worry during that 12 hours whether or not they will be able to afford those braces the dentist said their child must have, or whether they will be able to make the mortgage payment this month. Perhaps you should look into the cost the county would have to incur if these two departments were not already in place, and you had to negotiate with independent agencies to hire for this type of work. I guarantee you the county would not be able to bear the burden. Is it politically correct or morally right to hold these agencies hostage simply because they already exist? Again, my husband and I are deeply disappointed with your recent vote, and will most certainly be monitoring the outcome of your voting decisions in the future.Linda Tillis DunnellonNo time to allow county to decay Golf is a lot like taxes you drive hard to get to the green and then wind up in the hole. Taxation pays for essential services, or services that people want and have come to expect (or demand), or those that are mandated by the federal or state governments. The new fire tax has nothing to do with growing government, but everything to do with generating revenue to cover the necessary costs associated with providing essential fire services to everyone in our local community, and every property owner will pay the same amount. There have been multiple local studies conducted in the past, all ignored by our elected officials, that supported the need for more funding. Failure to properly fund fire services could pose a greater liability to the taxpayers if someone died as a result. Just about now depraved indifference should come to mind. Local governments have a responsibility to fund core functions or essential services, including fire and public safety. Our rights, life and property must be protected first and foremost. The people have transferred this responsibility to government because it provides greater security and efficiency at a reduced cost. An unthinkable alternative would be for everyone hiring their own private security and fire fighter, and then paying for it out of their own pockets. Many services and entitlement programs should not be funded from public revenue, and yet they are. Mob rule should never be a factor when determining appropriate action, but sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the oil. It is also bad policy for government to favor one segment of the population over another. The blow-back could be that, unintentionally, they create another subset of issues, often similar or worse than the ones they were trying to solve. Commissioner (Scott) Adams vote was predictable, since he would have no problem with Citrus returning to the stone age town of Bedrock. His McCarthy-esque and junkyard-dog style of governing is dangerous and counterproductive. His disdain and manner are divisive and offensive. Anyone that does not agree with him becomes his enemy and is subjected to his ridicule and insults. He expects everyone to be impressed by his direct pipeline to Tallahassee via Sen. (Charlie) Dean. Commissioner (Rebecca) Bays vote was political grandstanding and a flipflop, and her recitation was hypocritical and superfluous at best. Wasnt she the one pushing MSBUs/MSTUs? When governments streamline on services it costs taxpayers more in the long run. We have a good solid foundation in terms of infrastructure and essential services that took years to build and implement. This was all possible because of taxation. We should not let it deteriorate nor decay, because it will cost taxpayers double or triple to rebuild in the long run. Instead, our local government needs to eliminate those programs/ services that should never be funded from public revenue, but they are fearful of the publics response and outcry. What does scarce mean? It means that what everybody wants adds up to more than there is. There will never be enough to satisfy everybody completely. (Economist Thomas Sowell) Government can never provide everything people want and have come to expect since no one wants to pay more, nor give up anything they are already getting. Reality can be shocking and unpopular, but we will never dig ourselves out of this financial hole unless someone grabs this bull by the horns or we all have to ante up.Edna Mattos HernandoRun county like a businessOur county commissioners (with two exceptions) are letting us down and showing little respect for their constituents. They are functioning like the management of their own private company except they do not have a product/service that enables a source of income. Subsequently, the costs for operation fall on our shoulders. The horse is being put in front of the cart, recommending a budget before recommending taxes (hefty increase if needed) to provide funding. When I was in manufacturing, our yearly budget was determined based on estimated sales of product/ services. If the sales/ service did not support the budget, each department was required to submit areas where costs could be reduced or eliminated. It is time for our business managers (commissioners) to take time with each department manager, and line item by line item evaluate each expense for its current need or desire. If it is not deemed as a current (real) necessity, eliminate or reduce within funding capabilities. There are many projects and manpower requirements that if reviewed would allow substantial saving. It is time for better, with insight, cost management, not just increasing the current funding on our shoulders. Remember, we all have our own budgets to live within and cannot increase our funding by request or taxation. Leonard Manz Homosassa

Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration is planning to transfer two Guantanamo Bay detainees to Algeria, the first movement of terrorist suspects from the prison since the president announced a renewed push to close the contentious military-run facility in Cuba. The White House said Friday it was starting the transfers as part of President Barack Obamas goal to close the prison, a campaign promise that has eluded him since he took office. The move signaled a new push to reduce the population of 166 detainees at the prison, where dozens are on a hunger strike to draw attention to their indefinite detention. The White House said the two detainees will not be identified until after the transfer, which cant come until after a 30-day waiting period. Administration officials also wouldnt say what security assurances they had from the Algerian government as part of the arrangement. An administration official said the detainees were chosen because Algeria is a close U.S. ally that has successfully managed detainees in the past none of the previous 12 to be released have returned to terrorist activities, unlike some returned to other countries. The official, speaking on a condition of anonymity without authorization to publicly discuss the process, said it has been in the works since several months before Obama announced his intention this spring to push anew for closure.

US wont seek Snowdens deathWASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder assured the Russian government that the U.S. has no plans to seek the death penalty for former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden. In a letter dated Tuesday, the attorney general said the criminal charges Snowden now faces in this country do not carry the death penalty and the U.S. will not seek his execution even if he is charged with additional serious crimes. Holder said his letter follows news reports that Snowden, who leaked details of two top secret U.S. surveillance programs, has filed papers seeking temporary asylum in Russia on grounds that if he were returned to the United States he would be tortured and would face the death penalty. Snowden has been charged with three offenses in the U.S., including espionage, and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Train driver accused in SpainSANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain Spanish police said Friday they have arrested the driver of the train that sped through a curve and toppled over, killing 78 people, and plan to question him over suspected reckless driving. As blame increasingly fell on the still-hospitalized driver over Spains deadliest railway crash in decades, authorities located the trains so-called black box that is expected to shed further light on the disasters cause. Investigators said they would seek evidence of failings by Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, the 52-yearold driver, as well as the trains internal speedregulation systems in Wednesdays derailment. In an interview with The Associated Press, an American passenger injured on the train said he saw on a TV monitor screen inside his car that the train was traveling 194 kph (121 mph) seconds before the crash far above the 80 kph (50 mph) speed limit on the curve where it derailed.

The captor is now the captive, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said of 53-year-old Ariel Castro. The womens escape from Castros home two months ago at first brought joy to the city where they had become household names after years of searches, publicity and vigils, then despair at revelations of their treatment. Their rescue brought shocking allegations that Castro fathered a child with one of the women, induced five miscarriages in another by starving and punching her, and assaulted one with a vacuum cord around her neck when she tried to escape. Castro told the judge he was addicted to pornography, had a sexual problem and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. He pleaded guilty to 937 counts in the deal, which sends him to prison for life without parole, plus 1,000 years. Prosecutors agreed to take a possible death penalty charge off the table. Castro, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a bushy beard, was far more engaged than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judges questions in a clear voice, saying he understood that he would never be released from prison and adding that he expected he was going to get the book thrown at me. I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent, when I first got arrested, he said. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind. At the end of the 2 1/2hour hearing, the judge accepted the plea and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The women said in a statement they were relieved by the conviction. They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future, said the statement released on their behalf. Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. He was accused of repeatedly raping, beating and restraining the women, sometimes chaining them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom heater or inside a van. Castro fathered a 6-yearold daughter with Berry, now 27, authorities said. On the day the child was born, Christmas 2006, Castro raped one of the other women, who had helped deliver the baby. Berry told authorities that she, her child and the other women never saw a doctor during their captivity. Knight, now 32, said her five pregnancies ended after Castro starved and repeatedly punched her.

The Buccaneers have committed more than $100 million to upgrade a leaky secondary, however McCoy feels its up to him and the rest of a young defensive line to give offseason acquisitions Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson the best chance to have a huge impact. McCoy reported to training camp 10 pounds lighter than the Bucs requested. Hes eager to build on last year, when he remained healthy for an entire season for the first time in his career and began to show why he was the third overall pick in the 2010 draft. Now, the Bucs are counting on him to emerge as the leader of a unit missing Barber, the final link to Tampa Bays only Super Bowl championship. Im not really doing anything differently, just kind of taking on more of the role Ive been given. I always had somewhat of a leadership role, otherwise your peers wont vote you as a captain, McCoy said. But THE leader that spot was left open when (Barber) left, so Im just kind of filling in, not doing anything different. Just taking the leadership that I already had to a different level, McCoy added. Thats pretty much it. The Bucs were last in the NFL in pass defense in 2012, nearly setting a league record for yards allowed en route to a 7-9 record. A porous secondary was part of the problem, but an anemic pass rush also contributed to the team missing the playoffs for the fifth straight year. McCoy had a career-best five sacks, more than the first two seasons of his career combined. Tampa Bays 27 sacks overall were the third fewest in the league. Entering his fourth season, McCoy is determined to change that.

Lauderdale in Ft. Lauderdale. Crystal River is 1-0 overall and plays 6:30 p.m. tonight against Bloomingdale (Tampa), who played a late contest Friday night. The Citrus County squad overcame an early 3-0 deficit, in part due to the strong pitching of four different hurlers. Derrick Rogers (2 innings, 3 hits), Tyler Voland (1 2/3 innings, 1 hit, 1 strikeout), Jordan Humphreys (1 1/3 innings, 2 hits, 3 strikeouts) and Cory Weiand (2 innings, 1 hit, 3 strikeouts) gave up one earned run combined. Our pitching was outstanding all day and thats been our strength all season, Crystal River manager Dennis McClure said. That was a good Plantation team that we played today. Offensively, Rogers led the way by going 4 for 4 with a double and two runs while Crystal River also got contributions from Casey Purnell (3 for 4, run), Voland (2 for 4, three runs) and Zac Pattison (2 for 4, double). After starting out tight, we hit the ball well for a couple of innings, McClure said. Were proud of the way our boys battled back.

Tampa Bay win, Boston loss vaults Rays into first place in AL East Associated PressNEW YORK Jeremy Hellickson retired Yankees newcomer Alfonso Soriano with the bases loaded to preserve an early lead and the streaking Tampa Bay Rays tagged CC Sabathia once again, beating New York 10-6 Friday night. The Rays have won 20 of 23 and took sole possession of the AL East lead for the first time since June 10, 2012. Tampa Bay moved a half-game ahead of Boston. Ben Zobrist, Yunel Escobar and Evan Longoria doubled during a six-run burst in the second inning, and James Loney later homered and drove in four runs. Well supported all season, Hellickson (10-3) won his sixth straight decision. Fernando Rodney, the Rays fourth pitcher in a three-run ninth, got the last out for his 25th save. Trying to add power, the Yankees acquired Soriano from the Chicago Cubs before the game, trading a minor league pitcher to get the seven-time All-Star and lots of cash to cover much of his contract. Soriano got his chance to make a sudden impact, batting with the bases loaded, two outs in the third and the Yankees trailing 6-1. With Tampa Bays infield overshifted to the left side, he ran the count full before lofting a routine fly to right that ended the inning. The 37-year-old Soriano, who began his career with the Yankees in 1999 and drew a big ovation in his return, went 0 for 5, scored once and drove in a run. He got an RBI with a bases-loaded forceout in the ninth. Soriano did more on defense, catching a fly to start the game, making a throw that helped nail a runner and running down a foul ball. Orioles, Tillman defeat Red Sox 6-0BALTIMORE Chris Tillman pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Adam Jones homered twice and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-0 Friday night to end a three-game skid. The loss dropped the Red Sox a halfgame behind Tampa Bay in the AL East, after a 10-6 win by the Rays over the New York Yankees. Boston, which has lost six of nine, had been alone atop the division since May 27. Tillman (13-3) tied a career high with eight strikeouts in becoming the Orioles first 13-game winner since Erik Bedard in 2007. From wire reports

Minor (10-5) gave up four hits with no walks in seven innings. His sharp performance came two days after Tim Hudson was lost for the season with a broken right ankle. The Atlanta rotation also is without left-hander Paul Maholm, who isnt on the disabled list but is expected to miss at least one start because of a bruised left wrist. Wainwright (13-6), the NL leader in wins, took his first loss since a 2-1 decision to Texas on June 23.National League Marlins 2, Pirates 0MIAMI Henderson Alvarez earned his first National League victory, Giancarlo Stanton hit his 12th homer, and the Miami Marlins managed another low-scoring victory, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0. The Marlins are 4-4 since the AllStar break even though they have totaled only 15 runs. Jeff Locke (9-3) allowed only one earned run in 6 2/3 innings and had a career-high nine strikeouts, but he lost for the first time in his past 10 road starts. His ERA rose to 2.15. Alvarez (1-1) gave up just two hits in six innings and lowered his ERA to 2.64. The game was his fifth after he sat out the first half of the season with right shoulder inflammation. The shutout was only the third by the Marlins, but their starters have an ERA of 2.44 since the All-Star break.Nationals 2 Mets 1 Mets 11, Nationals 0WASHINGTON Ryan Zimmerman homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets for a doubleheader split. In the opener, Jenrry Mejia pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Daniel Murphy homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs as Mets won 11-0. Murphy had two hits for New York in the nightcap and went 6 for 9 in the day-night doubleheader. After Anthony Rendon grounded out, Zimmerman hit a 3-1 fastball from reliever LaTroy Hawkins (3-2) over the fence in right center. The Mets wasted another impressive outing by Matt Harvey, who gave up five hits and an unearned run in eight innings. Rafael Soriano (2-2) pitched the ninth and survived a first and third one-out jam.American League Blue Jays 12, Astros 6TORONTO Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs in one inning, including his sixth career grand slam, Jose Reyes, Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 12-6. Encarnacion became the first Blue Jays player in nearly 20 years to homer twice in the same inning when he accomplished the feat in the seventh against Paul Clemens (4-4) and Hector Ambriz. For Encarnacion, the home runs were his 27th and 28th of the season, the third-most in baseball behind Chris Davis and Miguel Cabrera. Colby Rasmus had four hits and Reyes three as the Blue Jays won consecutive games for the first time since their franchise-record tying 11-game winning streak ended on June 24. Brett Cecil (4-1) pitched two thirds of an inning for the win, handing the Astros their 21st loss in 26 games.Indians 11, Rangers 8, 11 inningsCLEVELAND Ryan Raburns three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor gave the Cleveland Indians a wild and sloppy 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers. After Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana singled off Frasor (0-2), Raburn pulled a 2-1 pitch onto the home-run porch in left to rescue the Indians, who blew a 7-1 lead and nearly lost to a Texas team that committed three errors and had three wild pitches. As he neared home plate, Raburn flipped his helmet high into the air and was pummeled by his teammates who doused him with water. It was the seventh walk-off win this season for the Indians, who began a stretch of 14 of 17 games at home. Bryan Shaw (1-2), Clevelands fifth reliever, stranded the go-ahead run at third in the 11th, and the Indians stayed within three games of firstplace Detroit in the AL Central.Royals 5, White Sox 1CHICAGO James Shields tossed seven shutout innings and rookie David Lough homered and drove in another run to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The Royals (49-51) have won four straight and six of eight since the AllStar break. The White Sox (40-60) have lost four of five. Shields (5-7) allowed eight hits and walked two but faced only one real scoring threat, working out of a basesloaded jam in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.09 and has been especially effective on the road, where he improved to 4-3 with a 2.50 ERA in 12 starts. Chicago starter Jose Quintana (5-3) allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings to pick up the loss.Interleague Tigers 2, Phillies 1DETROIT Alex Avilas two-run double in the fifth inning put Detroit ahead, and Doug Fister pitched eight impressive innings for the Tigers in a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Cole Hamels (4-13) was trying to protect a 1-0 lead for the Phillies when he allowed the bottom of Detroits batting order to break through. After a one-out walk to Hernan Perez, Ramon Santiago and Avila hit back-to-back doubles. Santiago was playing third base in place of slugger Miguel Cabrera, who hasnt played since Monday because of an injured left hip. Fister (9-5) allowed three hits and an unearned run. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his 10th save in 10 chances. Darin Ruf grounded out with a man on third to end it.

Before practice each day, the 25year-old gathers all of the teams firstyear defensive linemen and accompanies them onto the field to work on fundamentals. What Im doing with them, I never got. I had nobody to help me, had nobody to coach me, nobody to take me under their wing. I had to learn on the go, McCoy said. I dont want these rookies to go through the same thing. I want to be that guy, where they dont have to say: Nobody helped me, they didnt teach me. ... because the better they are, the better well all be. McCoy was the second defensive player selected in the 2010 draft behind Detroit tackle Ndamukong Suh. He struggled as a rookie, failing to notch a sack until his ninth game. He missed the final three weeks of that season with a torn left biceps, finishing with three sacks. He had one sack the following year, when he sat out 10 games and parts of two others because of injuries. Despite the limited production and being unable to stay healthy those two seasons, McCoy said he never lost confidence in his ability. The 25-year-old returned in 2012, bought into the system installed by new coach Greg Schiano, and progressively played better. He was rewarded with his first trip to the Pro Bowl, not that he felt he necessarily need that to validate his improvement. I never doubted my ability. I never doubted myself because I knew once I started to figure it out, I would start to be successful, McCoy said. You never have it figured out ever. The worst three words anybody can say is I got it. Youve never got it figured out. But once I started to pick it up, I knew it was going to roll. The Bucs, who lost Barber to retirement in May, have invested heavily in upgrading the defense this offseason. They traded for Revis before giving him a six-year, $96 million contract; Goldson signed a five-year, $41.5 million deal in free agency after helping San Francisco reach the Super Bowl last season, and two other potential starters cornerback Johnthan Banks and Spence were added in the draft. In addition, Clayborn is returning after missing most of last season with a knee injury and Bowers is healthy after missing the early portion of 2012 while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. Clayborns back, Bowers is healthy, Im healthy. ... Were going to see what happens, McCoy said. The fourth-year pro feels hes put in the work necessary to give himself a chance to do his part. He was determined to report to camp lighter than the Bucs felt he should and met his goal, though he wont say exactly what he weighs. I trust my coaches, and I trust the system. I love the program, and I trust what we do here. However, I have to step across the white lines and I have to play, McCoy said. I know my body better than anybody. So I know what I feel good at, and where Ill be most confident. That why I came in lighter than what they wanted me at. McCoys commitment has not gone unnoticed. The player said hes 10 pounds lighter than he weighed last season and dropped 25 pounds between April and arriving at camp this week. I think it all lends to just the focus and how hard hes worked to get ready for the season, Schiano said. This guy is very focused. McCOYContinued from Page B1 Associated PressHunter Mahan tees off Friday on the 17th hole during the second round at the Canadian Open golf tournament in Oakville, Ontario. Three straight birdies boosts Mahan to top Associated PressOAKVILLE, Ontario Hunter Mahan birdied the final three holes Friday for an 8-under 64 and a twostroke lead after the second round of the Canadian Open. Coming off a ninth-place tie last week in the British Open, the fivetime PGA Tour winner had eight birdies in his bogey-free round at Glen Abbey to reach 13-under 131. John Merrick was second after a 62. He tied the course record set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 and matched by Andy Bean in 1983 both when Glen Abbey played to a par of 71 and Greg Norman in 1986. Merrick had an eagle and 10 birdies, playing the back nine in 6-under 31. Bubba Watson was 9 under after a 67. Aaron Baddeley and Patrick Reed shot 68 to reach 8 under, and Tommy Gainey (64), Chris Kirk (69) and James Hahn (68) followed at 7 under. Mike Weir was the top Canadian, following his opening 73 with a 67 to move into a tie for 26th at 4 under.American Wiebe vaults into top spot at Sr. British OpenSOUTHPORT, England American Mark Wiebe shot at 5-under 65 at Royal Birkdale for a share of the lead with Germanys Bernhard Langer after the second round of the Senior British Open. Langer, the 2010 champion at Carnoustie, had a 67 to match Wiebe at 5-under 135. South Africas David Frost was a stroke back after a 68. First-round leader Gene Sauers had a 70 join Peter Fowler (69) and Mark McNulty (67) at 3 under.

Earlier this month, Gay revealed he tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took May 16. Three people familiar with the case told the AP that Gay had multiple positives this year. One of those people said one positive came at nationals and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has notified him of that result. The people did not want their names used because the doping case against Gay is ongoing and the details have not been made public. Gays representatives did not immediately respond to attempts by the AP to reach them. The sprinter has already surrendered his spot at next months world championships. If a positive test from nationals is confirmed by his B sample, those results would be vacated, though its likely they would be anyway because of his May 16 positive. The May 16 test has been confirmed by a test of the B sample, one of the people familiar with the case said. From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Todays headline race is a makeup of an earlier rain cancellation from June the 18th annual Powell Family Memorial, featuring 125 laps of Super Late Model action for a $5,000 prize. If weather spoils plans again, the Memorial, which joins Modified Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, Hornets, Figure 8s, Legends and Bandoleros on the racing card, will be rescheduled for Sunday. For the last few years, the event has been held on dirt, and we are honoredto have this event back on asphalt atour facility, CCS track promoter Don Cretty said of the Memorial. The annual Late Model event was founded by James Powell III, a former winner of the race, after a 1994 plane crash took the lives of his mother, father, aunt, uncle and twin daughters. Powells family owned and operated the Ocala Speedway for 14 years starting in the early 1980s. Beyond the legacy and generous cash prize, the race is also the sixth of the Florida United Promoters Late Model Series (FUPS) schedule this year. We are thrilled to have been able to make this all work for the Powell Family, the track and the series, FUPS series director Rick Williams said. James and I have been friends for a long time, and we are so glad to host this event for him and his family. Wayne Andersons five wins in the Powell are the most by any driver, and he has five total FUPS wins this year, including Marchs season-opening Icebreaker 100 in Inverness. His closest competitor this season is Brooksvilles Daniel Webster (293 FUPS points), who picked up a FUPS feature win on June 22 at Winter Havens Auburndale Speedway and is second in points behind Anderson (331 points). Waynes son Randy Anderson (268 points), Brandentons Jesse Dutilly (270 points), Umatillas Anthony Cataldi (241 points), Naples Billy Bigley Jr. (269 points), Lake Panasoffkees Todd Brown (third in points at Citrus), Fort Pierces David Green and Citrus pointleader Herb Neumann Jr. are among others expected to run in todays marquee race. Bushnells Chris Allen and Dunnellons Clint Foley have combined to win all but one of the Modified Mini Stock features this year. While Allen leads the points chase by 35 behind a couple of feature wins and four heat victories, Foley, a recent three-time champion, has prevailed in five of the six features hes run this year. In Street Stocks, three-time champion Curtis Flanagan holds a whopping 12 total wins (seven features) and a 70-point lead, but Tim Wilson, of Floral City, easily snagged his first feature victory a month ago in the divisions most recent outing. Also picking up a first feature victory four weeks ago was Pure Stock driver Camron Ray, whose win also earned himself a Hard Charger award. Rays 16-yearold cousin Karlin Ray maintains a safe 92-point lead in the Pure Stock standings with wins in six features and five heats. The Mini Stock class youngest member, 16-year-old Mark Patterson, added a third feature win to his mantle in the groups most recent outing. Twelve separate drivers have at least one win this season in Mini Stocks, but Dade Citys Kevin Stone leads in points by 59 thanks to a divisionleading four feature wins and perfect attendance. A convincing win by Brooksvilles Travis Nichols (two feature wins) in regular Figure 8s (Pure and Street Stocks) on June 22 culminated his triumphant return from a major crash in late April and pulled him into a second-place tie with Pnut Higginbotham (feature win) and Ronnie Schrefiels in the standings 10 points behind leader Jimmy Kruse (feature win). Apopkas Kory Abbot has a win at Citrus this year and leads the FUPS throwback Legends class in both points and wins (three) this year. The Hornet division offers cars for rent for fans to compete. Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m. and heat races begin at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand prices are $13 for adults, $9 for students and seniors and $5 for children age 11 and under (children under 42 inches are free). BUTCH CRAWFORD /Special to the ChronicleDunnellons Clint Foley leads the Modified Mini Stock class in feature wins with five. Annual event headlines full Saturday of racing at Citrus County Speedway Tebows future could depend on versatility Associated PressFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tim Tebow had a rough day throwing the ball in his first training camp practice. But he caught a short toss during a screenpassing drill. His future with the New England Patriots, if he has one, may depend on that kind of versatility rather than his questionable quarterbacking skills. And the arrest of tight end Aaron Hernandez, of course, his former teammate at Florida, could help his chances. Coach Bill Belichick wouldnt commit Friday to using Tebow only at quarterback, where his throwing mechanics were faulty while with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. I think that well use Tim wherever we feel like hes best for the team, said Belichick, always careful not to tip his hand but not averse to dropping hints that may steer observers in the wrong direction, and I know thats what hes committed to doing as well, whatever that is. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Tebow has the size to play tight end and H-back but said hes only been in the quarterback room during positional meetings with the Patriots. But he departed from his insistence that he wanted to play only that position. Im going to do what coach asks me to do, he said. Belichick values players who can contribute at several spots. If Tebow can do that, it may buy him some time to improve on a motion that leads to wobbly, floating passes. Tebow and Hernandez were college stars as teammates for three years. They were reunited when the Patriots signed Tebow, who had been released by the Jets, on June 11. Associated PressNew England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow competes during an NFL football practice Friday in Foxborough, Mass. Nows the time for Montoya Lean, mean JPM riding for his health and his job Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Juan Pablo Montoya keeps a detailed log of all his rides. Not in the stock car, but on his mountain bike. All of them, every daily 2-hour trek in sunny Miami where the stocky Colombian tries to pedal himself into shape. Hes never too far from his favorite twowheeled ride at the track, like Talladega and Charlotte, or any locale when he can find some open space and just go. Theres been so much cycling to keep track of, too: More than 70 rides, and he is closing in on 1,000 miles this year and counting. JPM, NASCAR driver, has morphed into JPM, fitness freak. His quest has even taken him to a pilates studio, where wife Connie convinced him to try a handful of classes. About the only part of his workout routine he wont detail is exactly how much weight hes dropped. But its clear by looking at his frame that hes in the best shape of his stock car career. Yes, he was tired of the flab, but not just because he was overweight, but because of what it represented. Hes doing it all with one goal in mind. I want to (expletive) succeed in this, he said. Im tired of sucking. Montoya just might turn it around in Indianapolis, because he was back on top of the Brickyard on Friday. Just like he was when he won the 2000 Indianapolis 500. Just like he could have been at least two other times in the Brickyard 400. Yes, it was only the top time in practice, but its a sign that Montoya will be a contender again at Indy. He needs to be, for the sake of his sanity and perhaps his job. Montoya is in the final year of his contract with Chip Ganassi Racing, where hes won two races in the eight years since he abruptly left Formula One for NASCAR. His only wins were on road courses, and hes not been to Victory Lane since 2010. Montoya heads into Sundays race at Indy ranked 23rd in the Sprint Cup standings with three top-10 finishes on the year. Ganassi wont be pinned down on Montoyas future as driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet. Were all trying to get results here. Were just working on results, he said. Juan has a deep history with our team, and we want to give him every opportunity to do well. All of our drivers who have deep histories with our team, we go out of our way to make sure they are given every opportunity. The opportunities have been few and far between for Montoya, who won the Indy 500 and the 1999 CART title driving for Ganassi but hasnt found the same success since reuniting with the car owner in NASCAR. Part of his struggles are linked to the rollercoaster performance of the Ganassi organization, which has failed to put together consistent seasons. The team owner ordered a massive organizational overhaul after the 2011 season, and the results are only now showing. Montoya, one of the highest regarded drivers in the world when he jumped to NASCAR, admits the struggles have been draining. Its hard to keep your head up when things are not going well, and you go to places where you know you can get a pole and run up front and get top-fives, and instead you are running 30th and are the slowest car on the track, Montoya said. Its hard because I know its not me. Associated PressSprint Cup Series driver Juan Pablo Montoya smiles Friday during practice for the Brickyard 400 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE As was the case before public hospitals came into existence, most hospital care was under the auspices of religious groups. For Jews, this posed the problem of the obtaining of kosher food, as well as the discrimination practices against Jewish doctors. Jewish hospitals were set up in major cities to alleviate these problems. One of the first hospitals to be set up for Jewish patients was the Jews Hospital of New York, now known as Mount Sinai Hospital, which was founded in 1852. It was to serve the indigent Jews, as well as new immigrants to New York. A major philanthropic contributor to this institution was American-born Sampson Simson, who donated the land on which the hospital was built at West 28th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, and served as the first president of the board of directors. Funding was also provided by private donations and government subsidies since non-Jews were also treated there. The 45-bed Jews Hospital of New York accepted its first patient on June 5, 1855. People of all faiths were welcome, especially at the emergency department, but the majority of the patients were Jews. With the outbreak of the Civil War, the demands for the hospitals services became greater, and in 1866, the hospital abandoned its sectarian charter and was renamed the Mount Sinai Hospital. Today, the hospital is one of the most prestigious in the country and is a 1,171-bed tertiary teaching hospital. Of the many commandments (mitzvot) that Jews are required to fulfill, visiting the sick, bikur cholim, is one of the most important. Helping a sick person physically or spiritually is a mitzvah that brings so much comfort to one that is ill. Calling, sending cards or visiting are wonderful ways to connect with a person who is ill. Jews have always had social service organizations to care for their poor, widows, children or indigent citizens. For this reason, Jewish settlers were allowed to settle in areas as long as they could provide social welfare for their own citizens. Giving this concept some thought, it is no surprise to me that so many Jews are Years ago I wrote a book about idols, which is just another word for sin. An idol is whatever you turn to first a person, possession, position, relationship, substance, belief or experience for comfort, security, identity, meaning, etc. Basically, anything other than God. As I wrote the book, I got halfway through it and decided I was tired of being smacked upside the head with my own idolatry. Sheesh. All I wanted to do was write about other peoples idols/sin and make a boatload of money. So, about halfway through the book I decided to write about an idol/sin that I was confident was not my problem. I dont lust after Oriental art, I dont bet on horse races, Im not a crack addict and I am certainly not one of those people who always have to be right. Except, I am one of those. At first I didnt recognize it in myself. After all, its not like Id rather be right than happy like some people, and I easily admit when Im wrong. No, my needing to be right is subtle and sneaky, and unless you knew my heart you wouldnt even recognize it in me. Or maybe you already do and youre just too polite to say anything to my face. But just in case Ive been able to dupe you, heres a heads up on what to expect upon having a conversation with me. First, be prepared to have the second-to-the-last word, because I always have the last word. (Thats because Im right.) Just so youll know what to expect, heres how it will look: Youll say something like, Its a nice day out. Then I will inform you that theres actually a 60 percent chance of rain and Hurricane Zelda is expected to hit by morning. Or youll tell me, I went to see Cats on Broadway, to which I will add, I heard they originally wanted to call it Skunks. I wont ever make anything up (other than the skunk thing just now), but I wont let anything slide by either without adding my two cents worth. I always have to add something, some bit of useless, unsolicited information that no one, not even me, cares about. Always. I just cant let anyone else have the last word. Next, be prepared to have me correct you when youre wrong, which is just a little public service gesture I like to offer, especially if you make the grave error of misusing the word anxious when you should have said eager. For example, you are eager to go to Disney World, not anxious if what you mean is you cant wait to go and are happy about it. You can be anxious to go, but only if you are filled with anxiety and dread because youre terrified of Mickey Mouse. However, dont worry. Im so good at it I can be quite winsome and polite that youll hardly notice Im knocking you down in order to build myself up. Years ago, my pastor told me about a woman at church who thought it was her spiritual gift and duty to critique his sermon each week. Every week, she would point out his errors. I remember being horrified. The nerve of that woman! Who would be so arrogant and self-righteous as to think it was her duty to point out errors in others? Oh. (I would be so arrogant and selfrighteous.) The truth is, I really hate when I do that. I hate it in others, hate when people do that to me, but I really, really hate when I do it to you. But Im getting better. Im more aware of when my mouth opens and I start talking about hurricanes and skunks on Broadway Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES Of course Im right See GRACE/ Page C4 Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO Pope Francis is praising the importance of the elderly during the Catholic Churchs festival of youth, saying grandparents are critical for passing on wisdom, family and religious heritage and are a treasure to be preserved and strengthened. Francis has made a point of not focusing just on the next generation of Catholics during World Youth Day, but on the older generation as well, part of his longstanding work caring for the elderly in Argentina and the gentle deference he shows his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Francis noted that Friday was Grandparents Day. He said: How important grandparents are for family life, for passing on the human and religious heritage which is so essential for each and every society. Francis celebrated Mass with his fellow Jesuits and heard confessions from young pilgrims in a Rio de Janeiro park on Friday ahead of one of the most solemn events of World Youth Day, a re-enactment of Christs crucifixion held at ground zero of Rios hedonistic life, Copacabana Beach. Francis was also offering a noontime prayer and meeting with a group of juvenile detainees, a priority of his ever since his days as archbishop of Buenos Aires and an expression of his belief that the Catholic Church must reach out to the most marginalized and forgotten of society. Even now as pope, he calls a group of youths in a Buenos Aires detention center every two weeks just to keep in touch. In the Rio park, a white tent was set up to receive the faithful for confession, with small makeshift confession booths off to the side. Five youths, chosen through a raffle, were selected to go to confession with Francis, the sacrament in which Catholics confess their sins and are forgiven. It was just five minutes, it followed the regular ritual of confession, but then Francis stayed and talked with us, said one of the five, Estefani Lescano, 21, a student from La Guaira, Venezuela. It was all very personal. He told us that young people have the responsibility of keeping the church alive and spreading the word of Christ. The sun finally came out on Friday, ending four days of rain that soaked pilgrims and forced the relocation of the festivals culminating Mass on Sunday. Instead, the Mass and the Saturday night vigil that precedes it will take place at Copacabana Beach rather than the mud pit that is the Guaratiba field, some 30 miles west of central Rio. On Thursday, Francis showed off his rebellious side, urging young Catholics to shake up the church and make a mess in their dioceses by going out into the streets to spread the faith. Its a message he put into practice by visiting one of Rios most violent slums and officially opening World Youth Day on a rain-soaked Copacabana Beach. Francis was elected pope on a mandate to reform the church, and in four short months he has started doing just that: He has broken longheld Vatican rules on everything from where he lays his head at night to how saints are made. He has cast off his security detail to get close to his flock, and his first international foray as pope has shown the faithful appreciate the gesture. Dubbed the slum pope for his work with the poor, Francis received a rapturous welcome in the Varginha shantytown on Thursday, part of a slum area of northern Rio so violent its known as the Gaza Strip. The 76year-old Argentine seemed entirely at home, wading into Pope tells youths to treasure elderly Judi SiegalJUDIS JOURNAL Long before Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and Blue Cross, Jews were caring for their sick in compassionate hospital settings.

The Varginha visit was one of the highlights of Francis trip to Brazil, his first as pope. The surprise, though, came during his encounter with Argentine pilgrims, scheduled at the last minute in yet another sign of how this spontaneous pope is shaking up the Vaticans staid and often stuffy protocol. He told the thousands of youngsters, with an estimated 30,000 Argentines registered, to get out into the streets and spread their faith, saying a church that doesnt go out and preach simply becomes a civic or humanitarian group.

Patrick Fagan, director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute, said surveys have found that married couples who attend church every week have the most fulfilling sex lives. In a lecture on Porn in the Dorm at the Family Research Council, Fagan said thats information that college students probably werent taught in sex education classes. He said it also suggests that a students married parents may be the go-to experts on how to have fulfilling and enjoyable sex lives.

A South Dakota church that bills itself as the first Norwegian Lutheran Church in the Dakota Territory is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The St. Paul Lutheran Church in Elk Point was founded in 1863. The parish was originally known as the Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Congregation. The church in southeastern South Dakota church has been served by 20 pastors. Church spokesman Glenn Olson told KCAU-TV that the celebration is exciting at a time when the changing face of agriculture and population shifts make it difficult for rural churches to survive.4,500 crosses go missing from Durango ski hillDURANGO, Colo. Thousands of small crosses that were planted on a Colorado ski slope to bring attention to childhood poverty have gone missing. The Durango Herald reported volunteers with the First Baptist Church of Bayfield planted 4,500 crosses in a cross pattern on the citys ski slope and had a permit from the city to keep them there for a month. Police say the crosses were removed sometime between the night of July 9 and the morning of July 10. Sgt. Rita Warfield said the crosses might have been stolen to protest religious symbols in a public park. City Manager Ron LeBlanc said he approved the churchs project, thinking it more to be freedom of expression than a religious statement.Ex-priest seeks $450,000 from Wis. archdioceseMILWAUKEE The list of creditors for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee includes those you might expect to find in a bankruptcy case a bank, pension funds and a retirees health care plan. It also includes a priest removed from the priesthood amid allegations of child sexual abuse. The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying it wouldnt have enough money if lawsuits filed by sexual abuse victims went against it. Hundreds of victims also filed claims. The claim filed by Marvin Knighton stands out because he was acquitted by a jury. But the church still removed him from the priesthood, saying two of three allegations against him had merit. Knighton is seeking back pay of $450,000.Netanyahu thanks Christians for supporting IsraelWASHINGTON Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has thanked thousands of Christians meeting in Washington for supporting the Jewish state. In a live satellite broadcast to Christians United for Israel, Netanyahu said hes an avid reader of the Bible, and that he and his son read their weekly Torah portion together every Saturday. Israels prime minister said rabbis and their students also hold Bible classes in his official residence. Netanyahu said that in addition to containing lessons for people everywhere, the Bible tells the story of the Jewish people a story he insisted is not over. Christians at the conference were urged to help the Jewish state survive amid turmoil in Egypt, civil war in Syria and Irans nuclear threat. ReligionBRIEFS From wire reports ALICIABANKS The Fayetteville ObserverFAYETTEVILLE, N.C. Stanley Ragin bowed his head. He clasped his hands in front of himself as he sat down. I thank you for life, Lord God. Im so thankful for today, he said. His eyes closed. The congregation of My Fathers House Christian Church in Fayetteville prayed with Ragin, who was dressed this Sunday morning in a peachcolored, collared shirt and pressed slacks. Every other day of the week, he wears green prison garb. Ragin, 40, is an inmate at Robeson Correctional Center in Lumberton. The pastor of the small church, which meets in a Bragg Boulevard storefront, drives 45 minutes each Sunday to bring Ragin to services. He is allowed only six hours outside the prisons barbed-wire fence, just once a week. But what Ragin has gained in those six hours, he says, has already made him a free man. The Lincoln projects in New Yorks Harlem Ragin called it home while growing up. He saw a lot before he was 18 years old: the rich hip-hop culture on street corners, and drug hustlers not far behind in what he calls the era of crack cocaine. Its where Ragin witnessed his brothers killing, something he does not like to talk about. The need to fend for himself turned Ragin to a path of drugs. Harlem, at that time, was an amusement park, so to speak. It was colorful. You hear about people driving fancy cars. I saw Porsches and BMWs. Those were people I looked up to, he said. Ragin dropped out of school in the seventh grade. He turned to running drugs across states. He could earn as much as $10,000 for one trip. It was a quick way to fund a music career and film documentaries. I tried to utilize the illegal means to finance the good means I had, he said. It cost him 11 years of his life. He served sentences on drug charges in New York, Maryland and New Jersey, but even that never phased him. It was part of the lifestyle. His three children in New Jersey were left without a father. Every time I tried to take off, I wound up getting locked up, he said. Gods been speaking to me for years and years. I was hard-headed, like most of us are. Ragin is now serving five years at Robeson Correctional on trafficking charges. In 2008, law enforcement found more than $25,000 of bundled heroin that Ragin concealed in a van while driving through Halifax County. He pleaded guilty. Ragin was not nervous about five more years in prison. The idea of where his life was heading and the family he left in New Jersey worried him more. His youngest was a newborn when he arrived at Robeson Correctional. He asked God one question. My prayer was for God to send me a teacher. No one taught me how to live. I had to learn by experience, he said. One day, Ragins case manager called him. A man named Reginald Johnston was looking to continue his ministry of working with inmates. Johnston and his fellow ministers at My Fathers House operate an outreach program called Capital Ministry Community Assistance Program Involving Training and Leadership. An aspect of the program, started in 2008, encourages church leaders to spread the gospel to jail and prison inmates. About 60 people regularly attend the church, which shares a brick building with a pawnshop in Bonnie Doone. There is no steeple, only a welcoming sign. Our ministry wants to take people in, even when their family wont, Johnston said. We want to help anyone who needs it. Each Sunday, Johnston drives to meet Ragin at the prisons gates. Ragin greets him with a smile, a firm handshake and a tight embrace. Sundays highlight Ragins week. It takes his mind off the routine of early mornings and 10-hour workdays. Ragin and Johnston spend the 45-minute car rides talking. Its not easy for Ragin to share what they discuss. Johnston is his teacher, a confidant. We talk about our weeks, days, scriptures. Its having a conversation with someone who is teaching me, Ragin said. Its enriching. Their time together is through the N.C. Department of Public Safetys Community Volunteer Leave Program. Inmates at minimum-security prisons can learn to make the transition back into the community after their release. More than 60 prisons statewide participate in the program, according to department spokesman Keith Acree. The inmates get minimal freedoms, such as attending church services or looking for work. Sponsors, such as Johnston, go through training by prison administration and must be with the inmate at all times outside prison, Acree said. Ministry looks to help inmates

Soon, bright yellow buses will be rolling down the streets of Citrus County and kids will be headed back to school for another adventurous year. But, before they pack up their backpacks, the libraries have one more special summer reading treat in store for all of the children who have diligently participated in the Citrus County Dig into Reading program a summer reading finale extravaganza. During the summer, we have wormed around in soil, dug into dinosaurs and even said argh me mateys! as we learned about pirates. Some of our programs even tied in with the statewide initiative Viva Florida 500, which is a year-long celebration of the past 500 years of modern Florida history, since the landing of Ponce de Leon in 1513. So, we learned about Floridas ancient people, Florida shipwrecks and even the geology of Florida. The summer reading program has been a great time; however, all good things must come to an end. But that doesnt mean we cant have a little last-minute fun! From 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at the Citrus County Auditorium in Inverness, kids will be treated to a summer reading finale program. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.

Learning leadership Special to the ChronicleThere are about 1,700 children in Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A guardian ad litem (GAL) is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He/she becomes familiar with the child and the childs case and makes recommendations to the court to help ensure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment for that child. Persons 21 years of age and older (young adults between the ages of 19 and 21 years of age are also eligible, working under the guidance and partnership with a certified volunteer GAL), who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training. On average, volunteers spend five to 10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. To learn more, call Lynn Sennett at 352-2745231 or email Lynn. Sennett@gal.fl.gov. For more information and an application, visit www. guardianadlitem.org.

C6SATURDAY, JULY27, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.C.J. Cherryh, a science fiction and fantasy author who has an asteroid named after her, said, Trade isnt about goods. Trade is about information. Goods sit in the warehouse until information moves them. For the last two weeks, we have been using the acronym trade to help find the right plays. We track the tricks, read the lead, audition the auction, deduce the danger, and eye the entries. Here is one more example. How should South play in four spades after West guesses well to lead a fourth-highest club five? When North raises three spades to four, he knows that there could be four top losers, but it might make or be a good sacrifice against a making four-heart contract for East-West. This deal is Easts problem. He should realize that if the defenders are going to win four tricks, they will be either three clubs (West started with queen-fourth) and the heart ace, or two clubs (West started with five clubs) and two hearts. So, East takes the first trick with his club king and cashes the club ace, noting that West plays the two, indicating that West started with five clubs. Now East must shift to a low heart. If West has the king, cashing the ace first works fine; but not here. The question is: Will South guess correctly? Finally, if West wins the third trick with the heart queen, how does he know to return a heart, not give East a club ruff? Because if East had begun with the ace-kingdoubleton of clubs, he would have won the first trick with the ace, then cashed the king.

(N) (Live)WGN News at NineBones Dear Annie: I visit my family every summer and help my aging mother with her huge yard. About a decade ago, she and my stepdad bought a house for me. It was understood that eventually I would be able to put my name on the deed, but at the time, my financial situation was overwhelming. Due to cutbacks at work and other problems, I had to declare bankruptcy. But I should have all my debts paid off in about two years. When I saw my mother today, my aunt was present. Mom made a comment about my finances that left me covered in a bucket of shame. She has never done this before. I am angry, but I suspect she has no clue what she did. I wonder whether she is losing her perception of appropriate behavior and can no longer keep a confidence. The problem is, my aunt is now curious about my financial situation and feels she has the right to inquire since my mother brought it to her attention. I dont know how to handle this. Any advice? California Dear California: It doesnt matter what your aunt thinks she is entitled to. You are not required to discuss your financial situation with anyone who isnt directly involved. When your aunt tries to get information from you, be polite but firm. Tell her, I appreciate your concern, but Id rather not discuss something so personal. Its possible your mothers comment indicated suppressed anger about this situation, and you might discuss it with her. Otherwise, please suggest she see her doctor for a complete evaluation of her mental and physical health. Dear Annie: I recently attended my 10-year high school reunion. When we started college, Facebook was just gaining traction. At the reunion, I was mingling with my classmates and catching up. If someone had posted on Facebook that they had gotten married or had a child, I would comment and say congratulations. There was one classmate who posted that she was going on a month-long trip to Europe. I told her that sounded fun. She responded by saying how awkward it was that I knew her personal business when we hadnt spoken in 10 years. If someone doesnt want others to know about their vacation plans, they shouldnt post them on their Facebook page for all to see. You can put as much or as little information as you desire on your profile. You also can control who sees it. Was it rude of me to discuss this? Awkward Turtle Dear Turtle: No. When people post things openly on Facebook, they are courting comments from anyone who sees their page, whether or not that is the intent. As you said, there are ways to limit exposure, but you have to set the controls to do so. Privacy is becoming a luxury of the past. It is ridiculous to publicize your life and then act offended when people notice. Still, the best method of handling such unpleasant encounters is to apologize for intruding and back away. Dear Annie: Betty wrote in response to N.N., suggesting that her husbands depression might be linked to celiac disease. I do not have celiac, but have battled with several serious health problems for years. I finally saw a nutritionist, who diagnosed me as highly sensitive to gluten. I thought she was a quack, but I gave it a try. After three days of eating no gluten and feeling better, I decided to have a graham cracker. For the next several days, I suffered with a migraine, cramps and an awful hangover feeling. My advice is, even if the celiac test comes back negative, he might try going without gluten to see how he feels. My nutritionist had me add more lean protein and safe carbs such as quinoa and buckwheat to my diet. Its been a year, and my symptoms and depression have much improved.

Eleven of Citrus Countys 15 elementary and middle schools dropped one letter grade, according to a report released Friday by the state Department of Education. Forest Ridge Elementary School and Central Ridge Elementary School were the only schools to maintain their A grades from a year ago. Because of the grade drop, Citrus County loses its status as an academically highperforming school district, which it had held for seven straight years. When we saw the preliminary grades, Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The number of top-rated schools in Florida fell sharply again this year as the states students struggle to adjust to a wave of new standards. And the bottom line could have been much worse if state education officials had notStatewide, numbers dip Sam Himmelsuperintendent of schools. District drops to BSee GRADES/ Page A9 See RATINGS/ Page A5 Korean armistice celebrated Longtime volunteer couple leaving county City balks at paying fire fee MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerThe city of Invernesss 7,100 citizens may catch a break on the countys new $54 fire-services fee unless the city council decides to join the effort. County commissioners approved the new fees at a well-attended public hearing Tuesday night. However, both the cities of Crystal River and Inverness are exempt from the fees unless they opt in. Crystal River has its own fire department and pays neither the fireservices tax nor the new fee. Inverness, however, is part of the countys firerescue service and its property owners pay the fire tax. City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said Friday that he met July 18 with county officials to discuss the fire fee, but nothing definitive came of those talks. DiGiovanni said he told county officials the city should be treated as an individual district because its fire costs and needs are much lower than those in rural areas. He said County Attorney Richard Wesch told him the county would send the city a bill for services if it didnt join the municipal services benefit unit, or MSBU. I said, I dont know how thats going to work, DiGiovanni said he told Wesch. Wesch did not return calls for comment Friday. City Attorney Larry Haag, a former longtime county attorney, briefed Frank DiGiovanniInverness city manager. CARLY ZERVIS/For the ChronicleVeterans of the Korean War perform a gun salute in honor of the two recently discovered names of U.S. Army casualties from Citrus County: Pvt. Arthur P. Carlsen, 1st Calvalry Division, and Pfc. Richard G. Sanders, U.S. Army 2nd Infantry. The salute and cere mony at the historic downtown Inverness courthouse were also to honor the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War on July 27, 1953. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerEarly on a damp, humid morning Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse stood on the lawn of the Old Courthouse in Inverness, reading the engraved sign. Holding hands, they both read quietly information they already knew by heart. Pioneer families traversed the wild Florida terrain to settle here in 1887, in the area that became Citrus County, with the construction of a permanent courthouse in the county seat of Inverness in 1912. However, that long preceded the Drinkhouses arrival. It was in 1991, on a whim, that the Drinkhouses traveled to Citrus County and fell in love with the rural area. Like many, two years later they found themselves residents. We took a while to get settled, then we went down to the resource center to find out what we could volunteer to do, Beverly said this week. We always said that when we moved we wanted to give something to the community that we migrated to. Ron hooked into the historical society. For two retired folks, their giving something to the community turned into a six-year endeavor as the historical group was in the infancy stages of restoring the historic courthouse. I was drafted in 1994 to head the fundraising, Beverly said. The courthouse was behind in getting money to match their grant. I didnt know what I was doing, as I had never done any fundraising. I kind of got roped into it, but it was a great project. Beverly spearheaded the pounding of pavement for donations and kept the heat on state lawmakers for grants.

OcalaRabies alert issued for SW Marion Health officials issued a rabies alert for south west Marion County after a raccoon tested positive. The Ocala Star-Banner reported this is the second alert issued this month and the third this year in Marion County. A rabies alert issued July 18 for an area just north of Ocala is still in effect. An alert issued March for northern Marion County expired in May. Officials said all domestic animals should be vaccinated against rabies. They advise people to avoid contact with all wildlife, but especially raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inglis to drop police, fire A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINGLIS The town commission has cemented what was set into motion in March, when citizens in this southern Levy County hamlet voted to scrap their police and fire services and hand the work to the county sheriffs office. Thursday, the Inglis Town Commission voted 3-2 to award the sheriffs office a law enforcement contract that runs through 2017. Commissioners Michael White, Sally Price and Ann Morin voted for the contract while Drinda Merritt and Sherry Ely voted against the measure. The contract calls for the provision of three deputies for the town and one part-time supervisory deputy. The deal also stipulates the following, among other things: The sheriffs office cannot, for financial reasons, supply a law enforcement officer to patrol the town for all 24 hours of the day. The sheriffs office will make all its services available to the town, including K9, traffic enforcement and Citizens on Patrol. The financial terms of the agreement are as follows: 2013-14 $276,000; 2014-15 $276,000; 201516 $281,520, and 2016-17 $287,150.40. The sheriffs office also reserves the right to make requests for financial adjustments should the need arise. If the parties cant agree, the agreement will be terminated. The sheriffs office is responsible for all hiring. Three vehicles, which used to belong to the Inglis Police Department, will be inherited by the LCSO. Efforts to disband the police services in the town had been ongoing for several years but culminated last March, when advocates were elected to a majority of the commission seats and the measure to do away with the department passed overwhelmingly. The contract takes effect Oct. 1. Sheriffs officials had taken a lukewarm posture toward those seeking to disband the police department mainly because of financial considerations and expectations. Levy County Sheriff Bobby McCallum has insisted his agency will not accept any contract that is for fewer than three years and could not see the feasibility of around-the-clock services. McCallum said at the time right after the election that the cost for 24-hour, seven-day-a-week coverage would require five fulltime deputy positions be added to his office. The first year would be $396,420.50. Thats because there would be some startup costs, he said. The second would go down some to $349,387, and the third would be $361,511. What this does not include is staffing the office in Inglis, McCallum said. For that, you would be adding about $43,000 to each of those years figures. That would cover staffing their building and paying the utilities and those sorts of things. He said the towns police officers are not guaranteed employment with the sheriffs office.

Nonprofit pet clinic Guardian ad Litem training set Aug. 5 Special to the ChronicleSome 1,700 children in Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a supervisor and program attorney. Persons 21 years of age and older (young adults between the ages of 19 and 21 years of age are also eligible, working under the guidance and partnership with a certified volunteer GAL), who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of preservice training. On average, volunteers spend five to 10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. To learn more, call Lynn Sennett at 352-274-5231 or email Lynn.Sennett@ gal.fl.gov. For information and an application, visit www.guardianadlitem.org.

Town inks contract with Levy County Sheriffs Office StateBRIEFS Belafonte joins with Capitol protestersTALLAHASSEE Famed singer and entertainer Harry Belafonte is calling on Florida Gov. Rick Scott to listen to protesters who have been at the Capitol for nearly two weeks. Protesters upset with the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman want Scott to call a special session so legislators can alter the states selfdefense laws. Scott has refused. Belafonte said Friday that Scott still has a chance to act before the protests intensify and the situation becomes ungovernable. Belafonte, who has never visited Tallahassee before, was part of a large contingent that was chanting and singing in the hallway outside the governors office. Law-enforcement reports showed that 86 people spent the night in the Capitol as part of the protest. Protesters say they are prepared to continue their standoff for weeks.Woman crushed by homemade elevatorWEEKI WACHEE A Tampa Bay area woman was crushed to death by a friends homemade elevator. The Hernando County Sheriffs Office reported that 66-year-old Margaret Elizabeth Harrison went to her friends Weeki Wachee home Tuesday morning. The friend, Jean Blair, had sent the outside elevator to the first floor in anticipation of her friends arrival. But after Harrison didnt show up for more than an hour, Blair called Harrisons boyfriend. Deputies say the boyfriend came over and found Harrison underneath the lift. Officials pronounced her dead at the scene. The elevator had reportedly been built by Blairs husband from a forklift, wood and welded metal. They had never gotten a permit for the device, and building officials have since shut it down. The death has been ruled an accident. More school money means tax increaseTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott and state legislators have traveled the state this year boasting about the extra money they steered toward schools and teachers. But for some homeowners, more money for schools comes with a price: A tax increase this fall. The complicated formula used by the state to match local property tax dollars with state money has required a tax increase for nearly 20 out of the states 67 school districts. The list includes the home counties of Scott and the two leaders of the Legislature. Homeowners are starting to learn about the increases as school boards prepare to adopt budgets for the new school year. For most districts, its a small increase likely to add $20 to $30 more to the tax bill of the owner of a $225,000 home with a homestead exemption. Associated PressBarbara DeVane reaches out to kiss singer, songwriter, actor and social activist Harry Belafonte Jr. as he heads Friday to Gov. Rick Scotts office in the Capitol in Tallahassee. Dream Defenders were joined by Belafonte as they went into their 11th day of a sit-in at Scotts office. From wire reports

Birthday Some of the grateful recipients of your past favors will find a number of ways to repay you in the year ahead. They will go out of their way to help you achieve your social and material goals. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Substantial returns are in the offing from all the effort youve expended on something that has yet to yield fruit. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) One of your most valuable assets will be the ability to motivate others to get off their duffs. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your material aspects continue to look quite encouraging. Follow the same formula that youve been using and you should be able to get a profit through both direct and indirect action. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although a friend of long standing might come to you for help, ironically, you could be the party wholl derive the greatest benefits from it. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) To get others to be more effective, let them think your good ideas are theirs. By doing so, youll be the one who will end up with the greatest success. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Go out of your way to touch base with some old friends. Owing to something new thats stirring, its to your advantage to maintain as many strong relationships as you can. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Youre still in a very fortunate cycle where benefits can be derived from handling tasks and assignments as effectively as possible. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) This is an excellent day to enter into serious negotiations, provided each party is as concerned about protecting the rights of others as they are their own privileges. Aries (March 21-April 19) You have a natural ability to take something thats old and transform it into something far more useful. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Something good is likely to happen that should strengthen the bonds between you and your special someone. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Youre on a productive roll when it comes to wrapping up deals, but itll be up to you to take full advantage of favorable circumstances. Cancer (June 21-July 22) If at all possible, do not delegate any important assignments to a subordinate. TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Saturday, July 27, the 208th day of 2013. There are 157 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On July 27, 1953, the Korean War armistice was signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting. On this date: In 1866, Cyrus W.

In 1940, Bugs Bunny made his official debut in the Warner Bros. animated cartoon A Wild Hare. In 1996, terror struck the Atlanta Olympics as a pipe bomb exploded at Centennial Olympic Park, directly killing one person and injuring 111. Anti-government extremist Eric Rudolph later pleaded guilty to the bombing. Ten years ago: Comedian Bob Hope died in Toluca Lake, Calif. at age 100. Five years ago: Two bombs targeting civilians at a packed square in Istanbul, Turkey, killed 17 people. One year ago: Britain opened its Olympic Games in a celebration of Old England and new, even cheekily featuring a stunt double for Queen Elizabeth II parachuting with James Bond into Olympic Stadium.

A California judge delayed making a decision Friday on whether former child star Amanda Bynes should be put under the conservatorship of her parents. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser said there was no rush to act on the request by Bynes parents because the actress is under a two-week psychiatric hold at a hospital. Reiser scheduled a hearing on the issue Aug. 9 and said he also wants to meet one-on-one with Bynes before making a decision. The 27-year-old actress behavior has become increasingly bizarre over the past year. Bynes was put under the psychiatric hold Monday after authorities said she set a fire on the driveway of a home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, where she grew up. In May, Bynes was arrested in New York for allegedly throwing a marijuana bong out the window of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment. Police had come to the apartment to investigate a complaint that she had been smoking marijuana in the buildings lobby. Last year, Bynes was charged in Los Angeles with driving on a suspended license, the license having been suspended after she was charged with driving under the influence and misdemeanor hit-and-run. Bynes, who was only 13 when she landed her own hit variety program, The Amanda Show on the Nickelodeon cable network, went on to star in the TV series What I Like About You and several movies, including What a Girl Wants, Hairspray and Shes the Man.Garth Brooks is a new grandfatherNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Miley Cyrus, the 20-year-old actress-singer, is getting a onehour documentary not yet titled on the MTV network. The announcement was made Friday by MTV Programming President Susanne Daniels at the annual Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. Cameras will follow Cyrus as she works on her new album, which is due out later this year. Her current single, We Cant Stop, is No. 2 on Billboards Hot 100 chart.

research and accountability showed that some of the school grades would drop, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said Friday. Now that we received the grades from the state, our staff on Monday will begin to reevaluate everything to look into the grades and information that we received. Our focus every year is that it is based on every individual child that he or she at least received a years worth of learning and teaching. Grades for elementary and middle schools are based primarily on standardized testing results. High school grades, which include data on graduation rates, are usually released in December. The state Board of Educations recent policy allowed schools to drop no more than one letter grade. This drop protection benefited eight of the 11 schools. We are beginning to see significant shifts in the way the tests are scored, school board member Pat Deutschman said. This is all about test scoring. Its not about student performance. The tests havent changed that much; its what it takes to pass the tests. Those numbers go up, so you have the same schools, teachers, students and curriculum. This year they are an A next year they are a C. What changed? The tests changed. This is an indication of a test that failed the students (rather) than the students that failed the tests. Citrus Springs Middle School received an incomplete grade. Student achievements exceeded 10 percent; therefore, the state evaluates the schools test score results to ensure the growth is reflective of student learning. When the irregularities are resolved or founded as sufficient data, the school grade will be assigned and released, Himmel said. Himmel said she isnt yet sure what impact the loss of a high-performing status means to the district. Being high-performing entitles the district to initiate classes sooner in the school year than other districts. Therefore, the semester ends at Christmas break, allowing students to be tested on material before the break. The classification also coincides with students taking dualenrollment courses at the College of Central Florida. Himmel said losing this classification does not guarantee the starting date of 2014-15 school year and dual enrollment will be affected. The district applies every year for a two-year permit to initiate classes in early August. The district is verifying that this status is still in effect. Deutschman said she would suggest teachers not pay attention to the drop in grades. We see consistency high level and high quality in our schools, she said. These test scores do not reflect that big of a change was made over night. I know our schools over night did not stop teaching. Our kids did not stop performing at the same level that they always have.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, JULY27, 2013 A5 000FIP2 000FF3W Lic. & Insured 352-400-3188 YOUR INTERLOCKING BRICK PAVER SPECIALIST IS IT TIME TO REFINISH YOUR POOL?

The news came as little surprise Monday night to officials and residents as Richard Powell of Powell & Jones CPA told the Dunnellon City Council. Powell unveiled his companys findings, which took almost two months to complete, to a packed house at city hall. More than 60 residents, both from the city and Rainbow Springs, came out in force to hear the news. The study revealed what most had already known Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is failing, and continuing to maintain the system would put it in even more financial jeopardy in November, when it must pay Regions Bank more than $1 million in bond obligations. Its not surprising, but its shocking, Mayor Nathan Whitt said about the findings. The city must now notify state officials as to the status of the financial quagmire its in; however, it does not mean the city is in a full-fledged state of financial distress, which would require assistance from Gov. Rick Scotts office. In putting the state on notice, Eddie Esch, interim city manager, said the city will have 45 days to prepare a plan showing how officials will guide the city onto a path of financial stability. Both Esch and John Pierpont, of Pierpont Consulting LLC, told the council they will have a plan together to present to state officials within 30 days. Esch also said the city has reached out to a company that assists cities with handling bankruptcy or financial reconstruction. Officials, Esch said, plan to ask for assistance with financial reconstruction. Now the city council is faced with the daunting task of selling Greenlight Communications as soon as possible, Pierpont said. In May, Pierpont Consulting provided the council with three options to assist with the future of Greenlight: The first option was to restructure the enterprise operation and perhaps eliminate services such as cable television. The second option was to create a public-private partnership that would allow the city to have a vested interest in the system; however, allow the program to continue to grow with outside financial support. The third option: sell the system outright and get what money it could for the fiber-to-the-home program. This information is a very significant game changer, Pierpont told the council. This information changes everything we presented, dramatically. This is without a doubt why we must move forward with an accelerated sale of (Greenlight). Currently, the fiber-to-thehome program has fewer than 500 customers and is operating off reserve funds. Key in the sale, Pierpoint told the council and audience, is customers. The more customers Greenlight has, the more the city can sell the system for. Pierpoint told the council there are three companies interested in purchasing the system outright. However, to sell the system will take time, though he pointed out the city could request that whatever company intends to purchase it must take over the day-to-day operations immediately. We do this and we do this quickly, said Pierpoint, whose consulting fee will be 3 percent of the sale price of the system. When we transfer the system, we want to transfer the operation of the system. We dont want current customers being left in the dark. In addition to selling the system, therell be plenty of work to do on the legal side, Pierpont said. Overall, the city is on the hook for more than $12 million for the ambitious undertaking the Dunnellon City Council approved in November 2010, when officials secured $7.3 million in funding from Regions Bank in Orlando. By using those funds, officials said, the city is breaking the covenants of the bond. Though not illegal, Esch said the bank could choose to come down hard on officials. I cannot see them doing it, but thats not to say they wont, he said. The city is also committed to paying more than $1 million for a lease agreement for its headend equipment. Additionally, the city borrowed more than $2 million from the reserves of the water/sewer system, which drained all of its reserve funds, as well as used bond monies used to purchase the Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls utility systems in December 2011. Well have to negotiate loan payoffs with the bank, payoffs for the head-end system, he said. We have a lot of work to do. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger told Esch and Pierpont whatever occurs in the coming weeks, its pivotal to make sure that information is made public. This whole affair has been nonsense, she said of the financial debacle. Whatever happens, I want everything on the table before anything is done. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans asked Powell if, through scouring through the numbers and expenditures, if he noticed if any illegal activity occurred, such as embezzlement or misappropriation of funds occurred. The answer is no, Powell said, noting the main problem stemmed from the 2013 Fiscal Year Budget which indicated Greenlight was expected to generate more than $4.5 million in revenue. That never happened, so as you can see where the loans and other revenues covered that significant shortfall. Three of the five council members Evans, Fleeger and Lynne McAndrew remained adamant they were kept in the dark about the true state of finances not only within Greenlight Communications, but the city as a whole. You were here, you approved these expenses, said Steve Swett, a Rainbow Springs resident. You did it. Eddie EschDunnellon interim city manager. John Pierpontof Pierpont Consulting.

We had a lot of public interest because people had a lot of pride in the restoration of the Old Courthouse, Ron said. Otherwise, it was going to be torn down and made into a parking lot. We just fought tooth and nail to prevent that. The dust settled in 2000 and the $2.4 million restoration was officially completed. Many locals credit the Drinkhouses for new life being born in the aging structure. Because of their diligence and devotion, theChroniclenamed Ron and Beverly Drinkhouse its 2000 Citizens of the Year. History, however, is not their only passion. In 1994, Ron began writing a weekly wine column for the Chronicle. I want the reader to learn something that he or she did not know before, Ron said. I try to keep it very simple and basic without a lot of big words. There is a wine mystique out there for many. It is that mystique that I try to overcome. His advice to those unfamiliar with details pertaining to wine is to pop a cork. However, at the bottom of my column they are going to have to change my residence from Oak Ridge to Jacksonville, Ron said. Thats right, they are saying goodbye to the community and joining family in Jacksonville. It is time to get closer to family, Beverly said, teary-eyed. We have enjoyed Citrus County tremendously and we hope the community feels that we have given something to them, too. We have met a lot of nice people and made a lot of good friends. We will miss them. The Drinkhouses can be contacted online at ronoct9@aol.com.

Crystal River (Hwy. 486, just east of Hwy. 44) www.outdoorpowerplace.com 000FGJ7 adopted a last-minute safety net provision that softened the final grades. The new A to F grades released Friday for elementary and middle schools show that the number of A-rated schools fell nearly 39 percent this year, while the number of Frated schools more than doubled. Grades for high schools wont be released until late this year. Last year, more than 1,200 schools received the A grade that is used by parents and businesses to identify top-rated schools. This year, the preliminary grades resulted in a drop to just 760 schools with A grades. Top education officials insisted that the changes that kicked in this year including a raise in required writing test scores led to the dramatic decline. Other recent changes include incorporating results from new end-of-course exams. This years school grades are indicative of the fact that Florida has continued to raise standards, said Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. Each year, the state hands out A to F grades that are used to reward top schools and sanction those that get failing marks. The system has been in place for more than a decade and was the centerpiece of changes first put in place under then-Gov. Jeb Bush. Some school superintendents have complained that the current school grades do not reflect true academic performance because of the impact of all the recent changes. Miami-Dade schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho on Friday tweeted out the drop in grades was artificial and that unreasonable changes to the formula have undermined the grading system. That point of view was echoed by the head of the states teachers union. Andy Ford, president of the Florida Education Association, argued that the flurry of changes had rendered the grades meaningless as a comparison of school progress. Lower school grades dont reflect a drop in achievement by students, said Ford. They are the result of numerous changes in the grading system Bennett has defended the need to include the tougher standards because Florida is transitioning in 2014 to a new set of common core standards that could prove even tougher than those in place now. Bennett, however, said that those schools that received F grades are showing that they are need of help. Still, the number of Frated schools could have been higher. Earlier this month, the State Board of Education voted 4-3 to tweak the formula that allowed as many as 150 schools to avoid getting an F grade. The board adopted a provision recommended by Bennett that prevented any school from dropping more than one letter grade at time. The decision to change the grading standards was done over the protest of some officials who said the move would confuse parents and mask the true performance of many schools. GRADESContinued from Page A1 the city council in May about the countys plans for an MSBU. He noted the only way it could include the city was if the city council approved an ordinance opting in to the MSBU. No one from county government presented the proposal to the city council and the council never took a vote either, DiGiovanni said. He said he doubts Inverness residents would receive the same benefit of paying a higher rate for fire protection than in rural areas that are in need of the improvements that the new fee will bring. What we were questioning was being lumped in with the sprawl areas that drive this thing up, DiGiovanni said. They look at every piece of property equitably, which we dont. He said he will likely recommend the city council hire its own consultant to recommend what city homeowners and other property owners should pay for fire services. Coincidentally, city residents will also benefit from a drop in the fire tax, which county officials plan to offset with the fire fee. Except for Crystal River, the fire property tax is extended countywide. FEEContinued from Page A1 Southern states gird for fight on voter laws Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas Stricter voter identification laws, redrawn political maps fortifying Republican majorities, reducing early voting: States with GOP strongholds intensified these efforts under President Barack Obama and proclaimed victory at the Supreme Court. Now the Obama administration is signaling plans to drag some of these mostly Southern states with histories of minority discrimination into rematches after the high court knocked down a major piece of the Voting Rights Act. First up is Texas, which rushed to enact a tough voter ID law and new redistricting maps after the justices 5-4 ruling last month. North Carolina is considered to be another possible target of the administration, and officials in Alabama are also digging their heels in for another possible round with the Justice Department. Other states also are watching closely. You can imagine a very aggressive Justice Department trying to get the bar as low as possible and demanding that states be bailed in back under former voting rights protections, said Rebecca Green, co-director of the election law program at the College of William & Mary. Predictions that North Carolina is on deck grew late Thursday after its Legislature sent Republican Gov. Pat McCrory sweeping voting law changes, including the end of a popular program that registers high school students to vote in advance of their 18th birthday. Theres also a strict voter ID measure, slashing early voting by a week and the elimination of same-day registration. State elections statistics show black voters use early voting in heavy numbers and that more than 300,000 of the states residents dont have a drivers license, many of them poor and elderly. North Carolina conservatives call the moves voter integrity safeguards and were confident they will stand. I think what weve seen over the past several years is the Obama administration politicize the voting rights section in ways weve never seen before, said North Carolina state Sen. Phil Berger, the top Republican in the chamber. I do not think they are a non-partisan or neutral arbiter. North Carolina gave final approval to the measures only hours after U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced he will ask a federal court to tether Texas back to provisions that require permission to change voting laws. Known as preclearance, the process had been mandatory in all or parts of 15 mostly Southern states with a history of discrimination, until the Supreme Court decision last month wiped out the preapproval. Holder called the decision flawed and said Thursday he will use every tool at our disposal in mounting a new fight over voter protection. He did not name other states in the sights of the Justice Department but vowed that Texas will not be our last. Election law experts say Texas presents the easiest but by no means assured path for the administration because a Washington federal court last year found the state to have engaged in intentional discrimination. One example cited by judges was black congressional members in Texas having economic drivers such as sporting arenas freshly carved out of their districts, while no such surgery was performed on those belonging to white incumbents. That finding makes it easier to apply Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act, a tactic rarely employed because the same effect was formerly achieved through the more muscular section of the law that is now eliminated. Holder has built his case against Texas around Section 3. Green said the Justice Department faces a tougher road in other states without what amounts to a smoking gun, such as judicial findings of intentional discrimination. She pointed toward North Carolina, where she said an argument could be made that its new election laws were driven not by race but partisanship, which is not protected under the Voting Rights Act. Associated PressTexas state Sen. Juan Chuy Hinojosa looks at maps on display prior to a Senate Redistricting committee hearing, in Austin, Texas. Attorney General Eric Holder says Texas is the first place that he will intervene to defend against what he calls attacks on the voting rights of minorities, but it is also the only state where the federal government has a clear opportunity to get involved, experts say.

Mysterious giant magnet has rock-star status Associated PressGLEN ELLYN, Ill. It skipped tolls. It had a Twitter hashtag and a GPS tracker. It even posed for photos with groupies. The 50-foot-wide, 15-ton electromagnet attracted a sensation wherever it went during its slow, delicate 3,200-mile journey from New York to suburban Chicago. The landand-sea trip culminated when scientists threw a rock stars welcome for the mysterious, shrinkwrapped cargo on Friday as it arrived at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory to help study blazing-fast particles. Oh look, they found a flying saucer! retired software developer Chris Otis recalled thinking when he saw the massive, disc-shaped device when it made a pit-stop in a Costco parking lot. Otis used his cellphone to take photos as he and others marveling the contraption wondered what would happen if it suddenly went live. Electromagnets need an electric current to work. I figure somebody at Fermilab is going to plug the damn thing in, turn it on and my watch is going to stop running, everybodys hearing aides are going to sail across the room, Otis said with a laugh. I have no idea. Turn it on and the Martians will hone in on it. Fermilab officials plan to use the magnet in a physics experiment called Muon g-2 that will study subatomic particles at their lab in Batavia, outside Chicago. The experiment will study the properties of muons, subatomic particles that live only 2.2 millionths of a second. The results of the experiment could create new discoveries in the realm of particle physics, said Chris Polly, manager of the Muon g-2 project at Fermilab. The hulking magnet is a hand-me-down from New York, where it was built in the 1990s with aluminum and steel by scientists at the Brookhaven National Lab on eastern Long Island. It has superconducting coils inside and, at the time it was built, was the largest electromagnet in the world. Brookhaven scientists no longer had a need for the electromagnet, and shipping it to the Midwest for about $3 million was cheaper than the alternative. Constructing an entirely new electromagnet could have cost as much as $30 million, Polly estimated. In any case, at least they didnt have to pay tolls on the parts of the journey that took it over land. Weve been assured that we dont have to pay tolls, but were waiting to see if we get the violation notice in the mail. Itd be pretty hard to dispute, said Fermilab spokesman Andre Salles, who was among the magnets traveling companions for about 10 days of the trip. Moving the thing, however, was in some ways as complicated and as delicate a maneuver as building it. It could not be taken apart or twisted more than about an eighth of an inch without irreparably damaging the coils, Polly said. It started its trip in late June, floating by barge down the East Coast into the Gulf of Mexico where it outran a tropical depression then up the Mississippi River, where it was photographed drifting past St. Louis arch on its way into Illinois. We had to hurry up and get going through the Gulf of Mexico and really have the tugboat pour it on, Terry Emmert Jr., vice president of Emmert International, said while recalling the race to avoid the storm. His company moved the magnet across the country. Earlier in the journey, it spent almost a week docked in Norfolk, Va., because of bad weather, but the team traveling with it found a welcome diversion. The port happened to be across the street from a minor league baseball stadium, so the barge crew spent the whole week there, Salles said. Just south of Chicago, it was hauled out of the water and strapped onto a specially made 16-axel flatbed truck for its final leg. It traveled at a mere 5 to 15 mph, with a behemoth bumper sticker informing puzzled on lookers that it was Driving discovery in particle physics. It was a night owl that traveled after dark when roads werent as crowded, staging during the day at a Costco parking lot in suburban Bolingbrook and at a forest preserve. Thankfully, no damage was done along the way. Associated PressMIAMI For the first time in history, federal health officials said Friday they will ban certain types of Medicare and Medicaid providers in three highfraud cities from enrolling in the taxpayer-funded programs for the poor as part of an effort to prevent scams. The strict moratoriums, which start Tuesday, give federal health officials unprecedented power to choose any region and industry with high fraud activity and ban new Medicare and Medicaid providers from joining the programs for six months. The administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the agency is targeting providers of home health care in eight counties in the Miami and Chicago areas. All ambulance providers would be banned in eight counties in the Houston area. The moratorium, which was first reported by The Associated Press, will also extend to Childrens Health Insurance Program providers in the same areas, agency administrator Marilyn Tavenner said in a statement. Its unclear how many providers will be shut out of the programs. There were 662 home health agencies in Miami-Dade in 2012 and the ratio of home health agencies to Medicare beneficiaries was 1,960 percent greater in Miami Dade County than other counties, according to figures from federal health officials. South Florida, long known as ground-zero for Medicare fraud, has also had several high-profile prosecutions involving that industry. In February, the owners and operators of two Miami home health agencies were sentenced for their participation in a $48 million Medicare fraud scheme. The number of home health providers in Cook County, Ill., increased from 301 to 509 between 2008 and 2012. There were 275 ambulance suppliers in Harris County, Texas, in 2012. The ratio of providers to patients in both regions was also several hundred times greater than in other counties, federal health officials said. Top Senate Republicans have criticized the agency for not using the powerful moratoriums sooner as a tool to combat an estimated $60 billion a year in Medicare fraud. Senators Chuck Grassley, who is the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, and Orrin Hatch, who is the ranking Republican on the Finance Committee, sent a letter to federal health officials in 2011 urging them to use moratoriums. While its certainly better late than never, its unfortunate that it took CMS three years to use the tools its had to protect seniors, Hatch said in a statement Friday, adding he hoped to see more action like this. Officials for the Department of Health and Services inspector general lobbied hard to ensure moratorium power was included under the Affordable Care Act as the Obama administration focuses on cleaning up fraud on the front end by preventing crooks from getting into the program in the first place. In the past, federal health officials tried to stall new provider applications from being processed, hoping to slow the number flocking to high-fraud sectors. But when providers inevitably complained, the agency had to process their paperwork. The federal agency can also revoke the IDs of suspicious providers, but those are temporary and many companies are able to reenroll later or enroll under a different name.A10SATURDAY, JULY27, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION Home 50 years and newer.

Interestrates Stocks eke out tiny gains Friday Associated PressNEW YORK A mixed batch of earnings results gave investors little direction on Friday as traders began looking ahead to a packed schedule next week. The stock market slumped in early trading, climbed steadily the rest of the day, then ended little changed. Volume was thin as traders prepared for a deluge of potentially market-moving events next week: a Federal Reserve meeting, the governments monthly employment report and much more. Traders seem to be erring on the side of caution today, said Jeffrey Kleintop, the chief market strategist for LPL Financial. Expedia plunged 27 percent, the worst fall in the Standard & Poors 500 index. The online travel agency reported earnings late Thursday that badly missed analysts expectations. Higher costs were the main culprit. Expedia lost $17.80 to fall to $47.20. The Standard & Poors 500 index inched up 1.40 points, or 0.08 percent, to 1,691.65. The index ended the week with a tiny loss, the first this month. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 3.22 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 15,558.83. The Nasdaq composite index edged up 7.98 points, or 0.2 percent, to 3,613.16. Its halftime in the second-quarter earnings season, and corporate profits are shaping up better than some had feared. Analysts forecast that earnings for companies in the S&P 500 increased 4.5 percent over the same period in 2012, according to S&P Capital IQ. At the start of July, they predicted earnings would rise 2.8 percent. Nearly seven out of every 10 companies have surpassed Wall Streets profit targets. FDA proposes rules for safer imported foods Associated PressWASHINGTON Chances are that about 15 percent of the food you eat more if your diet includes lots of fruits, vegetables and cheese comes from abroad, and the government is taking steps now to make it safer. New rules proposed Friday by the Food and Drug Administration would make U.S. food importers responsible for ensuring that their suppliers are handling and processing food safely. Imported fruit and cheese has been responsible for many recent outbreaks, including 153 recent Hepatitis A illnesses linked to a frozen berry mix sold at Costco as well as four deaths last year that were linked to listeria in Italian cheese. Imported fruits or vegetables are also the top suspect in an ongoing outbreak of cyclosporiasis, a gastrointestinal infection that has so far sickened 321 people in 13 states. Other illnesses in the past several years have been linked to imported papayas, mangoes and nuts and spices used as ingredients. An estimated 3,000 people die from foodrelated illnesses every year. The proposed rules, required by a sweeping food safety law passed by Congress in 2010, are meant to establish better checks on what long has been a scattershot effort to guard against unsafe food imported from more than 150 countries. Only around 2 percent of that food is inspected by the government at ports and borders. The guidelines would require U.S. food importers to verify that the foreign companies they are importing from are achieving the same levels of food safety required in this country. The government estimates that the rules, which would also improve audits of food facilities abroad, could eventually cost the food industry up to $472 million annually. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg used the frozen berry illnesses, linked to pomegranate seeds from Turkey, as an example of an outbreak that could have been prevented if the new rules were in place. She said it illustrates the growing complexity of the food supply. FDA investigators had to look at berries from several different countries that were included in the mix before they zeroed in on the Turkish seeds as the probable source of the illnesses. Hamburg and other FDA officials say the rules show a major shift in thinking in the way the government works to keep food safe. Like rules for domestic farmers and food companies released earlier this year, the idea is to make businesses more responsible for the safety of the food they are selling or importing by proving they are using good food safety practices. They might do that by documenting basic information about their suppliers cleanliness, testing foods or acquiring food safety audits. If they fail to verify the food is safe, the FDA could stop shipments of their food. Currently, the government does little to ensure that companies are trying to prevent food safety problems but generally waits and responds to outbreaks after they happen. Requiring better prevention was the intent when Congress passed the bill. But since then, the law has run into several obstacles, including FDA delays in issuing the rules, a lack of congressional funding and increasing opposition from some rural members of Congress who represent worried farmers. A farm bill passed in the House this month included an amendment sponsored by Rep. Dan Benishek, R-Mich., that would delay all of the food safety rules. Farmers and importers have expressed concern that the rules will require too much time, cost and paperwork. FDA regulators say the new rules are necessary as the food system becomes more complex and more global. Food often stops in several locations and passes through many different hands in a matter of days before it hits grocery shelves. And a lack of funding has given the FDA little oversight over what is being produced. The agency inspects most food companies in the United States only every five to 10 years, and it does even fewer inspections abroad. The food safety law requires the agency to step up those foreign inspections, which jumped from 300 facilities in 2010 to 1,300 last year, according to the FDA. But that is still a just a fraction of the companies that import to the United States, and limited resources may mean the number of inspections wont continue to increase. The import safety proposal doesnt include oversight for meat, which is mostly produced domestically and is regulated by the Agriculture Department, or seafood, which is already subject to regulations on import safety. About 80 percent of the seafood Americans eat is imported. The rules would also exempt smaller importers that have less than $500,000 in sales annually. The domestic food safety rules proposed in January would require U.S. farms and food processors to take new precautions against contamination such as making sure workers hands are washed, irrigation water is clean and livestock stay out of fields. Food manufacturers will have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean. The food industry, aware of the toll major outbreaks can have on sales, has been supportive of the FDA food safety proposals and worked with Congress to pass the law three years ago. A statement from the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the industrys main trade group, said the rules serve as a role model for what can be achieved when the private and public sectors work together to achieve a common goal.

Bring this to a voteI went to the fire meeting on July 23 to explain that the county cannot afford these taxes at this time, that they needed to look within the budget. Bring it up to the voters; let them vote on it. Lets try to find the money to help the firefighters. There are many libraries, there are many parks that people dont use and we need to close them. Most of the kids today and most of the young adults, including myself, a middle-age adult you use computers, you use tablets and iPhones, you can read a book on a tablet, you can watch a movie, you can get a magazine, you can get some news.County is brokeCitrus Countys broke. Its time that the county commissioners start cutting back and authorize no new spending or any special project spending or any expansion spending and move all the government workers to four-day weeks just like federal government has. Its time we see some responsibility out of these folks before we have to re-elect new ones.Duped againWell, Citrus County citizens were duped again. Three commissioners voted for a 30 percent millage tax increase and put a $54 extra fee onto every resident. This is pathetic. Do something, citizens.Thank you Adams, BaysThank you, Scott Adams; thank you, Rebecca Bays, for standing by the citizens of Citrus County. You are the only two that took an interest in our problems. Thank you.We will lose our homesWell, I might have known the county commissioners voted 3-2 to pass the millage hike a ridiculous 30 percent hike All theyre caring about is giving and padding their pocketbooks along with the other county employees We pay the same prices out here as the rest of you all do. We dont get raises, so why are we having to pay a higher tax millage of a 30 percent increase along with fire protection needs to have volunteer fire departments come out here and want donations on top of that every year? So what gives? You want the taxpayers to go broke and lose their homes and end up in shelters and have to go to food pantries in order to get groceries just because Brad Thorpe and the county commissioners want a 30 percent tax increase? How absurd. OPINION Page A12SATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 Time not right for tax increasesI also attended both meetings regarding the fire fee and the budget hearing and I, too, was disgusted and appalled, but not by Mr. (Scott) Adams. To submit such a letter regarding Mr. Adams was disrespectful to him personally and for his position as a commissioner, who along with commissioner (Rebecca) Bays voted against the fire fee and the 30 percent tax hike. Of all the information that was given at these meetings, the one thing someone comments on is gum chewing? It seems one would be more concerned if the fire department is so short-staffed, who was at the fire stations while more than 75 of his staff were at the fire tax meeting in uniform, with all their county vehicles and more than 98 sheriffs staff at the county budget hearing Tuesday. If these vehicles are in such dire shape and need to be replaced, why are they being driven to these meetings? Were these employees being paid while they were at these meetings and who paid for the gas? There was nothing casual about this meeting. It seems one would be more concerned about the request from Sheriff Dawsy for yet still more money for new equipment along with a pay raises when the good people of Citrus County are doing without to make ends meet just to exist. The people that are lucky enough to have a job are making less money than they did years ago. I do believe the police and fire staff deserve the raises along with the county staff workers, but the time is not right. Thank you, Commissioner Adams and Bays, for voting no on both the budget and the fire tax and listening to the all the citizens who showed up for this meeting. Desiree Smith Brainerd InvernessShould have stayed with volunteersI was a volunteer firefighter for 42 years in my hometown and a chief officer for five years. I started wintering in Citrus County just prior to the paid fire department being organized. My feelings at the time were that the county commissioners were making a mistake. As soon as you try to mix volunteer and paid firefighters, you start to lose the volunteers. Therefore, the equipment starts responding with an inadequate number of firefighters to handle a fire when arriving at the scene. This is still a rural area, and rural areas do fine with volunteer fire departments. Rural areas dont have the tax base to support paid fire departments, and thats what the current commissioners are learning. In my opinion, Citrus County was not ready for a paid fire department and should have stayed with the volunteers for a few more years.Robert E. Newhall former fire chief BYDOUGLASCOHN ANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONThirty-one years ago, Princess Diana thrilled the British public and the world with the first glimpse of her firstborn son, William. Diana was 20 years old, and the years that followed were mostly unhappy ones, ending in her premature death in a car chase. Williams wife, Kate, is 31 years old, and he has chosen well. The public loves her, and when the young couple appears with their newborn son, they are the embodiment of the modern monarchy the royal family has worked hard to build, learning from their mistakes with Diana, and with Prince Charles. Those who wanted to do away with the monarchy have been silenced. Polls show the British public by an overwhelming majority wants it to endure. The tourist benefits are obvious, but there are other benefits that Americans dont tend to notice. The monarchy is the physical symbol of the country, the one institution, and the one person the Queen around which everyone can rally. God save the Queen conveys the message. Americans have an eagle, a majestic symbol, but we dont say, God bless our bald eagle, and chances are not every school child in the U.S. relates to this part of their heritage. In England, everybody knows everything about the Queen, and the royal family. The concept of a living symbol is not unlike religion; its something to hold onto when times are tough, and the royal family has been assiduous in protecting that role. During World War II, the King and Queen stayed in Buckingham Palace in the heart of London, standing with the people. This was no small thing. More than 40,000 people died in London during the Blitz. Every family who was able sent their children out of the city, but not the Queen, who rejected advice from the Cabinet to send her two daughters to Canada. The children wont go without me. I wont leave the King. And the King will never leave. When King George died in 1952, their daughter, Elizabeth became Queen. She was 25 years old. Over a 60-year reign, she has handled herself with typical British reserve, departing from the script just once when she dubbed 1992, her 40th anniversary as Queen, annus horribilis. That was the year Windsor Castle burned and the British public wasnt sure they wanted to pay for the reconstruction, two of her four children were separating and divorcing, and a tell-all book, Princess Diana: Her True Story, exposed all the unhappiness in Dianas marriage to Prince Charles with X-rated details and tapes to follow. It is a tribute to Elizabeth and to the two boys that Diana and Charles brought into the world that the monarchy is now fully recovered, and looking ahead to a bright future with William and Kate. If you asked the British public who they would like to see inherit the throne, it would be these two, especially now that theyve had their first child. Is it likely in the near future, or even possible? The trend among European monarchs now is to abdicate and the reason is longevity. Kings and Queens want to turn over the keys to the castle before their sons and daughters are senior citizens themselves. The 79-year-old King of Belgium just abdicated for his 53year-old son, and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abruptly announced she was stepping down three days short of her 75th birthday, turning over the throne to the oldest of her three sons. Prince Charles is 64 and deeply unpopular with the British public. In deference to Diana, an icon in death, his wife Camilla would not receive the title Queen, should he ascend to the throne. The question is whether Elizabeth, keenly aware of how the monarchy is regarded, would risk turning it over to her son or whether she would abdicate only if he relinquishes his right to the throne, and turns it over to William. Its a family drama with implications for a nations identity. Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington Merry-Go-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

In what was the bureaucratic equivalent of using a fine-point pen and a steady hand to turn an F into a B, the state Board of Education voted July 16 to extend the use of an ad hoc safety net implemented last year which prevents public schools annual state-issued letter grades from falling more than a full letter per school. The grades theoretically assess the states public schools based on FCAT scores and, for high schools, graduation rates, SAT results and participation and performance in college-level courses. The system rewards high-scoring schools with funds and levies punitive measures against flagging schools. For perennially underperforming schools, those measures can include being given the option to shut down, surrender control to the state or a private firm, convert to a charter school or submit plans for reform to the state. The move, the majority of the board reasoned, is necessary because recent tweaks to the ever-changing equation used to calculate grades would result in a significant increase in the number of schools receiving a grade of F. The decision preserves the carrot for highperforming schools and spares failing schools the stick. In an appallingly transparent attempt to legitimize overriding a system that produced results no one would like, the Florida Department of Education issued a statement claiming the boards action maintains the high standards that have raised Floridas national standing while preparing for the transition to the 2014-15 implementation of Common Core State Standards. The move makes a certain amount of sense, but its logic impugns the very standards FLDOE claims it preserves by revealing the grading scheme for what it is: A caricature of accountability based heavily on factors that have little to do with student achievement, tied to the political winds and beholden only to bureaucratic expectations. Students, no doubt, would love such a mulligan. All theyll get is the message.

Serving Citrus for over 35 years Repairs, Service, Parts Any Make or Model Letters to THE EDITOR Disappointed in your voteDear Mrs. (Rebecca) Bays and Mr. (Scott) Adams: My name is Linda Tillis, and in the spirit of full disclosure, my husband and I are registered Republicans and I am a 911 dispatcher for Citrus County. I spoke before the previous board meeting (prior to this past Tuesday) and you and I exchanged a few words during a break at the meeting. I am writing you today to tell you how disappointed I am with your recent vote. The additional tax in question with this vote was not some frivolous, feelgood idea. The safety of citizens in this county depends on the ability of the fire and sheriff departments to do its job. These good men and women are also citizens of the county. They live here, raise families here and put their lives on the line every day for the rest of the citizens. They also have to live on budgets and cut costs to make ends meet. When you voted against a tax that would supply them with the proper tools to do their job and the means to keep their families solvent, your vote was a slap in the face. The fire department is working under dire conditions with equipment that is as much as 20 years old, which leaves Citrus County liable for the safety of those fine men and women. The employees of the sheriffs office have not received a raise in five years. No fire personnel should ever make that trip to a fire and wonder if this is the day their equipment will fail. No deputy or dispatcher should ever have to do a 12-hour shift trying to save lives and have to worry during that 12 hours whether or not they will be able to afford those braces the dentist said their child must have, or whether they will be able to make the mortgage payment this month. Perhaps you should look into the cost the county would have to incur if these two departments were not already in place, and you had to negotiate with independent agencies to hire for this type of work. I guarantee you the county would not be able to bear the burden. Is it politically correct or morally right to hold these agencies hostage simply because they already exist? Again, my husband and I are deeply disappointed with your recent vote, and will most certainly be monitoring the outcome of your voting decisions in the future.Linda Tillis DunnellonNo time to allow county to decay Golf is a lot like taxes you drive hard to get to the green and then wind up in the hole. Taxation pays for essential services, or services that people want and have come to expect (or demand), or those that are mandated by the federal or state governments. The new fire tax has nothing to do with growing government, but everything to do with generating revenue to cover the necessary costs associated with providing essential fire services to everyone in our local community, and every property owner will pay the same amount. There have been multiple local studies conducted in the past, all ignored by our elected officials, that supported the need for more funding. Failure to properly fund fire services could pose a greater liability to the taxpayers if someone died as a result. Just about now depraved indifference should come to mind. Local governments have a responsibility to fund core functions or essential services, including fire and public safety. Our rights, life and property must be protected first and foremost. The people have transferred this responsibility to government because it provides greater security and efficiency at a reduced cost. An unthinkable alternative would be for everyone hiring their own private security and fire fighter, and then paying for it out of their own pockets. Many services and entitlement programs should not be funded from public revenue, and yet they are. Mob rule should never be a factor when determining appropriate action, but sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the oil. It is also bad policy for government to favor one segment of the population over another. The blow-back could be that, unintentionally, they create another subset of issues, often similar or worse than the ones they were trying to solve. Commissioner (Scott) Adams vote was predictable, since he would have no problem with Citrus returning to the stone age town of Bedrock. His McCarthy-esque and junkyard-dog style of governing is dangerous and counterproductive. His disdain and manner are divisive and offensive. Anyone that does not agree with him becomes his enemy and is subjected to his ridicule and insults. He expects everyone to be impressed by his direct pipeline to Tallahassee via Sen. (Charlie) Dean. Commissioner (Rebecca) Bays vote was political grandstanding and a flipflop, and her recitation was hypocritical and superfluous at best. Wasnt she the one pushing MSBUs/MSTUs? When governments streamline on services it costs taxpayers more in the long run. We have a good solid foundation in terms of infrastructure and essential services that took years to build and implement. This was all possible because of taxation. We should not let it deteriorate nor decay, because it will cost taxpayers double or triple to rebuild in the long run. Instead, our local government needs to eliminate those programs/ services that should never be funded from public revenue, but they are fearful of the publics response and outcry. What does scarce mean? It means that what everybody wants adds up to more than there is. There will never be enough to satisfy everybody completely. (Economist Thomas Sowell) Government can never provide everything people want and have come to expect since no one wants to pay more, nor give up anything they are already getting. Reality can be shocking and unpopular, but we will never dig ourselves out of this financial hole unless someone grabs this bull by the horns or we all have to ante up.Edna Mattos HernandoRun county like a businessOur county commissioners (with two exceptions) are letting us down and showing little respect for their constituents. They are functioning like the management of their own private company except they do not have a product/service that enables a source of income. Subsequently, the costs for operation fall on our shoulders. The horse is being put in front of the cart, recommending a budget before recommending taxes (hefty increase if needed) to provide funding. When I was in manufacturing, our yearly budget was determined based on estimated sales of product/ services. If the sales/ service did not support the budget, each department was required to submit areas where costs could be reduced or eliminated. It is time for our business managers (commissioners) to take time with each department manager, and line item by line item evaluate each expense for its current need or desire. If it is not deemed as a current (real) necessity, eliminate or reduce within funding capabilities. There are many projects and manpower requirements that if reviewed would allow substantial saving. It is time for better, with insight, cost management, not just increasing the current funding on our shoulders. Remember, we all have our own budgets to live within and cannot increase our funding by request or taxation. Leonard Manz Homosassa

Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration is planning to transfer two Guantanamo Bay detainees to Algeria, the first movement of terrorist suspects from the prison since the president announced a renewed push to close the contentious military-run facility in Cuba. The White House said Friday it was starting the transfers as part of President Barack Obamas goal to close the prison, a campaign promise that has eluded him since he took office. The move signaled a new push to reduce the population of 166 detainees at the prison, where dozens are on a hunger strike to draw attention to their indefinite detention. The White House said the two detainees will not be identified until after the transfer, which cant come until after a 30-day waiting period. Administration officials also wouldnt say what security assurances they had from the Algerian government as part of the arrangement. An administration official said the detainees were chosen because Algeria is a close U.S. ally that has successfully managed detainees in the past none of the previous 12 to be released have returned to terrorist activities, unlike some returned to other countries. The official, speaking on a condition of anonymity without authorization to publicly discuss the process, said it has been in the works since several months before Obama announced his intention this spring to push anew for closure.

US wont seek Snowdens deathWASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder assured the Russian government that the U.S. has no plans to seek the death penalty for former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden. In a letter dated Tuesday, the attorney general said the criminal charges Snowden now faces in this country do not carry the death penalty and the U.S. will not seek his execution even if he is charged with additional serious crimes. Holder said his letter follows news reports that Snowden, who leaked details of two top secret U.S. surveillance programs, has filed papers seeking temporary asylum in Russia on grounds that if he were returned to the United States he would be tortured and would face the death penalty. Snowden has been charged with three offenses in the U.S., including espionage, and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Train driver accused in SpainSANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain Spanish police said Friday they have arrested the driver of the train that sped through a curve and toppled over, killing 78 people, and plan to question him over suspected reckless driving. As blame increasingly fell on the still-hospitalized driver over Spains deadliest railway crash in decades, authorities located the trains so-called black box that is expected to shed further light on the disasters cause. Investigators said they would seek evidence of failings by Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, the 52-yearold driver, as well as the trains internal speedregulation systems in Wednesdays derailment. In an interview with The Associated Press, an American passenger injured on the train said he saw on a TV monitor screen inside his car that the train was traveling 194 kph (121 mph) seconds before the crash far above the 80 kph (50 mph) speed limit on the curve where it derailed.

The captor is now the captive, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said of 53-year-old Ariel Castro. The womens escape from Castros home two months ago at first brought joy to the city where they had become household names after years of searches, publicity and vigils, then despair at revelations of their treatment. Their rescue brought shocking allegations that Castro fathered a child with one of the women, induced five miscarriages in another by starving and punching her, and assaulted one with a vacuum cord around her neck when she tried to escape. Castro told the judge he was addicted to pornography, had a sexual problem and had been a sexual abuse victim himself long ago. He pleaded guilty to 937 counts in the deal, which sends him to prison for life without parole, plus 1,000 years. Prosecutors agreed to take a possible death penalty charge off the table. Castro, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a bushy beard, was far more engaged than in previous court appearances when he mostly kept his head down and eyes closed. He answered the judges questions in a clear voice, saying he understood that he would never be released from prison and adding that he expected he was going to get the book thrown at me. I knew that when I first spoke to the FBI agent, when I first got arrested, he said. Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, said he could read and understand English well but had trouble with comprehension. My addiction to pornography and my sexual problem has really taken a toll on my mind. At the end of the 2 1/2hour hearing, the judge accepted the plea and declared Castro guilty. Sentencing was set for Thursday. The women said in a statement they were relieved by the conviction. They are satisfied by this resolution to the case, and are looking forward to having these legal proceedings draw to a final close in the near future, said the statement released on their behalf. Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. Each said they had accepted a ride from Castro, who remained friends with the family of one of the women and even attended vigils over the years marking her disappearance. He was accused of repeatedly raping, beating and restraining the women, sometimes chaining them to a pole in a basement, to a bedroom heater or inside a van. Castro fathered a 6-yearold daughter with Berry, now 27, authorities said. On the day the child was born, Christmas 2006, Castro raped one of the other women, who had helped deliver the baby. Berry told authorities that she, her child and the other women never saw a doctor during their captivity. Knight, now 32, said her five pregnancies ended after Castro starved and repeatedly punched her.

The Buccaneers have committed more than $100 million to upgrade a leaky secondary, however McCoy feels its up to him and the rest of a young defensive line to give offseason acquisitions Darrelle Revis and Dashon Goldson the best chance to have a huge impact. McCoy reported to training camp 10 pounds lighter than the Bucs requested. Hes eager to build on last year, when he remained healthy for an entire season for the first time in his career and began to show why he was the third overall pick in the 2010 draft. Now, the Bucs are counting on him to emerge as the leader of a unit missing Barber, the final link to Tampa Bays only Super Bowl championship. Im not really doing anything differently, just kind of taking on more of the role Ive been given. I always had somewhat of a leadership role, otherwise your peers wont vote you as a captain, McCoy said. But THE leader that spot was left open when (Barber) left, so Im just kind of filling in, not doing anything different. Just taking the leadership that I already had to a different level, McCoy added. Thats pretty much it. The Bucs were last in the NFL in pass defense in 2012, nearly setting a league record for yards allowed en route to a 7-9 record. A porous secondary was part of the problem, but an anemic pass rush also contributed to the team missing the playoffs for the fifth straight year. McCoy had a career-best five sacks, more than the first two seasons of his career combined. Tampa Bays 27 sacks overall were the third fewest in the league. Entering his fourth season, McCoy is determined to change that.

Lauderdale in Ft. Lauderdale. Crystal River is 1-0 overall and plays 6:30 p.m. tonight against Bloomingdale (Tampa), who played a late contest Friday night. The Citrus County squad overcame an early 3-0 deficit, in part due to the strong pitching of four different hurlers. Derrick Rogers (2 innings, 3 hits), Tyler Voland (1 2/3 innings, 1 hit, 1 strikeout), Jordan Humphreys (1 1/3 innings, 2 hits, 3 strikeouts) and Cory Weiand (2 innings, 1 hit, 3 strikeouts) gave up one earned run combined. Our pitching was outstanding all day and thats been our strength all season, Crystal River manager Dennis McClure said. That was a good Plantation team that we played today. Offensively, Rogers led the way by going 4 for 4 with a double and two runs while Crystal River also got contributions from Casey Purnell (3 for 4, run), Voland (2 for 4, three runs) and Zac Pattison (2 for 4, double). After starting out tight, we hit the ball well for a couple of innings, McClure said. Were proud of the way our boys battled back.

Tampa Bay win, Boston loss vaults Rays into first place in AL East Associated PressNEW YORK Jeremy Hellickson retired Yankees newcomer Alfonso Soriano with the bases loaded to preserve an early lead and the streaking Tampa Bay Rays tagged CC Sabathia once again, beating New York 10-6 Friday night. The Rays have won 20 of 23 and took sole possession of the AL East lead for the first time since June 10, 2012. Tampa Bay moved a half-game ahead of Boston. Ben Zobrist, Yunel Escobar and Evan Longoria doubled during a six-run burst in the second inning, and James Loney later homered and drove in four runs. Well supported all season, Hellickson (10-3) won his sixth straight decision. Fernando Rodney, the Rays fourth pitcher in a three-run ninth, got the last out for his 25th save. Trying to add power, the Yankees acquired Soriano from the Chicago Cubs before the game, trading a minor league pitcher to get the seven-time All-Star and lots of cash to cover much of his contract. Soriano got his chance to make a sudden impact, batting with the bases loaded, two outs in the third and the Yankees trailing 6-1. With Tampa Bays infield overshifted to the left side, he ran the count full before lofting a routine fly to right that ended the inning. The 37-year-old Soriano, who began his career with the Yankees in 1999 and drew a big ovation in his return, went 0 for 5, scored once and drove in a run. He got an RBI with a bases-loaded forceout in the ninth. Soriano did more on defense, catching a fly to start the game, making a throw that helped nail a runner and running down a foul ball. Orioles, Tillman defeat Red Sox 6-0BALTIMORE Chris Tillman pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, Adam Jones homered twice and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Boston Red Sox 6-0 Friday night to end a three-game skid. The loss dropped the Red Sox a halfgame behind Tampa Bay in the AL East, after a 10-6 win by the Rays over the New York Yankees. Boston, which has lost six of nine, had been alone atop the division since May 27. Tillman (13-3) tied a career high with eight strikeouts in becoming the Orioles first 13-game winner since Erik Bedard in 2007. From wire reports

Minor (10-5) gave up four hits with no walks in seven innings. His sharp performance came two days after Tim Hudson was lost for the season with a broken right ankle. The Atlanta rotation also is without left-hander Paul Maholm, who isnt on the disabled list but is expected to miss at least one start because of a bruised left wrist. Wainwright (13-6), the NL leader in wins, took his first loss since a 2-1 decision to Texas on June 23.National League Marlins 2, Pirates 0MIAMI Henderson Alvarez earned his first National League victory, Giancarlo Stanton hit his 12th homer, and the Miami Marlins managed another low-scoring victory, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0. The Marlins are 4-4 since the AllStar break even though they have totaled only 15 runs. Jeff Locke (9-3) allowed only one earned run in 6 2/3 innings and had a career-high nine strikeouts, but he lost for the first time in his past 10 road starts. His ERA rose to 2.15. Alvarez (1-1) gave up just two hits in six innings and lowered his ERA to 2.64. The game was his fifth after he sat out the first half of the season with right shoulder inflammation. The shutout was only the third by the Marlins, but their starters have an ERA of 2.44 since the All-Star break.Nationals 2 Mets 1 Mets 11, Nationals 0WASHINGTON Ryan Zimmerman homered with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets for a doubleheader split. In the opener, Jenrry Mejia pitched seven scoreless innings in his season debut and Daniel Murphy homered twice and tied a career high with five RBIs as Mets won 11-0. Murphy had two hits for New York in the nightcap and went 6 for 9 in the day-night doubleheader. After Anthony Rendon grounded out, Zimmerman hit a 3-1 fastball from reliever LaTroy Hawkins (3-2) over the fence in right center. The Mets wasted another impressive outing by Matt Harvey, who gave up five hits and an unearned run in eight innings. Rafael Soriano (2-2) pitched the ninth and survived a first and third one-out jam.American League Blue Jays 12, Astros 6TORONTO Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs in one inning, including his sixth career grand slam, Jose Reyes, Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 12-6. Encarnacion became the first Blue Jays player in nearly 20 years to homer twice in the same inning when he accomplished the feat in the seventh against Paul Clemens (4-4) and Hector Ambriz. For Encarnacion, the home runs were his 27th and 28th of the season, the third-most in baseball behind Chris Davis and Miguel Cabrera. Colby Rasmus had four hits and Reyes three as the Blue Jays won consecutive games for the first time since their franchise-record tying 11-game winning streak ended on June 24. Brett Cecil (4-1) pitched two thirds of an inning for the win, handing the Astros their 21st loss in 26 games.Indians 11, Rangers 8, 11 inningsCLEVELAND Ryan Raburns three-run homer in the 11th inning off Jason Frasor gave the Cleveland Indians a wild and sloppy 11-8 win over the Texas Rangers. After Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana singled off Frasor (0-2), Raburn pulled a 2-1 pitch onto the home-run porch in left to rescue the Indians, who blew a 7-1 lead and nearly lost to a Texas team that committed three errors and had three wild pitches. As he neared home plate, Raburn flipped his helmet high into the air and was pummeled by his teammates who doused him with water. It was the seventh walk-off win this season for the Indians, who began a stretch of 14 of 17 games at home. Bryan Shaw (1-2), Clevelands fifth reliever, stranded the go-ahead run at third in the 11th, and the Indians stayed within three games of firstplace Detroit in the AL Central.Royals 5, White Sox 1CHICAGO James Shields tossed seven shutout innings and rookie David Lough homered and drove in another run to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The Royals (49-51) have won four straight and six of eight since the AllStar break. The White Sox (40-60) have lost four of five. Shields (5-7) allowed eight hits and walked two but faced only one real scoring threat, working out of a basesloaded jam in the sixth inning. The veteran right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.09 and has been especially effective on the road, where he improved to 4-3 with a 2.50 ERA in 12 starts. Chicago starter Jose Quintana (5-3) allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings to pick up the loss.Interleague Tigers 2, Phillies 1DETROIT Alex Avilas two-run double in the fifth inning put Detroit ahead, and Doug Fister pitched eight impressive innings for the Tigers in a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Cole Hamels (4-13) was trying to protect a 1-0 lead for the Phillies when he allowed the bottom of Detroits batting order to break through. After a one-out walk to Hernan Perez, Ramon Santiago and Avila hit back-to-back doubles. Santiago was playing third base in place of slugger Miguel Cabrera, who hasnt played since Monday because of an injured left hip. Fister (9-5) allowed three hits and an unearned run. Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his 10th save in 10 chances. Darin Ruf grounded out with a man on third to end it.

Before practice each day, the 25year-old gathers all of the teams firstyear defensive linemen and accompanies them onto the field to work on fundamentals. What Im doing with them, I never got. I had nobody to help me, had nobody to coach me, nobody to take me under their wing. I had to learn on the go, McCoy said. I dont want these rookies to go through the same thing. I want to be that guy, where they dont have to say: Nobody helped me, they didnt teach me. ... because the better they are, the better well all be. McCoy was the second defensive player selected in the 2010 draft behind Detroit tackle Ndamukong Suh. He struggled as a rookie, failing to notch a sack until his ninth game. He missed the final three weeks of that season with a torn left biceps, finishing with three sacks. He had one sack the following year, when he sat out 10 games and parts of two others because of injuries. Despite the limited production and being unable to stay healthy those two seasons, McCoy said he never lost confidence in his ability. The 25-year-old returned in 2012, bought into the system installed by new coach Greg Schiano, and progressively played better. He was rewarded with his first trip to the Pro Bowl, not that he felt he necessarily need that to validate his improvement. I never doubted my ability. I never doubted myself because I knew once I started to figure it out, I would start to be successful, McCoy said. You never have it figured out ever. The worst three words anybody can say is I got it. Youve never got it figured out. But once I started to pick it up, I knew it was going to roll. The Bucs, who lost Barber to retirement in May, have invested heavily in upgrading the defense this offseason. They traded for Revis before giving him a six-year, $96 million contract; Goldson signed a five-year, $41.5 million deal in free agency after helping San Francisco reach the Super Bowl last season, and two other potential starters cornerback Johnthan Banks and Spence were added in the draft. In addition, Clayborn is returning after missing most of last season with a knee injury and Bowers is healthy after missing the early portion of 2012 while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. Clayborns back, Bowers is healthy, Im healthy. ... Were going to see what happens, McCoy said. The fourth-year pro feels hes put in the work necessary to give himself a chance to do his part. He was determined to report to camp lighter than the Bucs felt he should and met his goal, though he wont say exactly what he weighs. I trust my coaches, and I trust the system. I love the program, and I trust what we do here. However, I have to step across the white lines and I have to play, McCoy said. I know my body better than anybody. So I know what I feel good at, and where Ill be most confident. That why I came in lighter than what they wanted me at. McCoys commitment has not gone unnoticed. The player said hes 10 pounds lighter than he weighed last season and dropped 25 pounds between April and arriving at camp this week. I think it all lends to just the focus and how hard hes worked to get ready for the season, Schiano said. This guy is very focused. McCOYContinued from Page B1 Associated PressHunter Mahan tees off Friday on the 17th hole during the second round at the Canadian Open golf tournament in Oakville, Ontario. Three straight birdies boosts Mahan to top Associated PressOAKVILLE, Ontario Hunter Mahan birdied the final three holes Friday for an 8-under 64 and a twostroke lead after the second round of the Canadian Open. Coming off a ninth-place tie last week in the British Open, the fivetime PGA Tour winner had eight birdies in his bogey-free round at Glen Abbey to reach 13-under 131. John Merrick was second after a 62. He tied the course record set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 and matched by Andy Bean in 1983 both when Glen Abbey played to a par of 71 and Greg Norman in 1986. Merrick had an eagle and 10 birdies, playing the back nine in 6-under 31. Bubba Watson was 9 under after a 67. Aaron Baddeley and Patrick Reed shot 68 to reach 8 under, and Tommy Gainey (64), Chris Kirk (69) and James Hahn (68) followed at 7 under. Mike Weir was the top Canadian, following his opening 73 with a 67 to move into a tie for 26th at 4 under.American Wiebe vaults into top spot at Sr. British OpenSOUTHPORT, England American Mark Wiebe shot at 5-under 65 at Royal Birkdale for a share of the lead with Germanys Bernhard Langer after the second round of the Senior British Open. Langer, the 2010 champion at Carnoustie, had a 67 to match Wiebe at 5-under 135. South Africas David Frost was a stroke back after a 68. First-round leader Gene Sauers had a 70 join Peter Fowler (69) and Mark McNulty (67) at 3 under.

Earlier this month, Gay revealed he tested positive in an out-of-competition test he took May 16. Three people familiar with the case told the AP that Gay had multiple positives this year. One of those people said one positive came at nationals and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has notified him of that result. The people did not want their names used because the doping case against Gay is ongoing and the details have not been made public. Gays representatives did not immediately respond to attempts by the AP to reach them. The sprinter has already surrendered his spot at next months world championships. If a positive test from nationals is confirmed by his B sample, those results would be vacated, though its likely they would be anyway because of his May 16 positive. The May 16 test has been confirmed by a test of the B sample, one of the people familiar with the case said. From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Todays headline race is a makeup of an earlier rain cancellation from June the 18th annual Powell Family Memorial, featuring 125 laps of Super Late Model action for a $5,000 prize. If weather spoils plans again, the Memorial, which joins Modified Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, Hornets, Figure 8s, Legends and Bandoleros on the racing card, will be rescheduled for Sunday. For the last few years, the event has been held on dirt, and we are honoredto have this event back on asphalt atour facility, CCS track promoter Don Cretty said of the Memorial. The annual Late Model event was founded by James Powell III, a former winner of the race, after a 1994 plane crash took the lives of his mother, father, aunt, uncle and twin daughters. Powells family owned and operated the Ocala Speedway for 14 years starting in the early 1980s. Beyond the legacy and generous cash prize, the race is also the sixth of the Florida United Promoters Late Model Series (FUPS) schedule this year. We are thrilled to have been able to make this all work for the Powell Family, the track and the series, FUPS series director Rick Williams said. James and I have been friends for a long time, and we are so glad to host this event for him and his family. Wayne Andersons five wins in the Powell are the most by any driver, and he has five total FUPS wins this year, including Marchs season-opening Icebreaker 100 in Inverness. His closest competitor this season is Brooksvilles Daniel Webster (293 FUPS points), who picked up a FUPS feature win on June 22 at Winter Havens Auburndale Speedway and is second in points behind Anderson (331 points). Waynes son Randy Anderson (268 points), Brandentons Jesse Dutilly (270 points), Umatillas Anthony Cataldi (241 points), Naples Billy Bigley Jr. (269 points), Lake Panasoffkees Todd Brown (third in points at Citrus), Fort Pierces David Green and Citrus pointleader Herb Neumann Jr. are among others expected to run in todays marquee race. Bushnells Chris Allen and Dunnellons Clint Foley have combined to win all but one of the Modified Mini Stock features this year. While Allen leads the points chase by 35 behind a couple of feature wins and four heat victories, Foley, a recent three-time champion, has prevailed in five of the six features hes run this year. In Street Stocks, three-time champion Curtis Flanagan holds a whopping 12 total wins (seven features) and a 70-point lead, but Tim Wilson, of Floral City, easily snagged his first feature victory a month ago in the divisions most recent outing. Also picking up a first feature victory four weeks ago was Pure Stock driver Camron Ray, whose win also earned himself a Hard Charger award. Rays 16-yearold cousin Karlin Ray maintains a safe 92-point lead in the Pure Stock standings with wins in six features and five heats. The Mini Stock class youngest member, 16-year-old Mark Patterson, added a third feature win to his mantle in the groups most recent outing. Twelve separate drivers have at least one win this season in Mini Stocks, but Dade Citys Kevin Stone leads in points by 59 thanks to a divisionleading four feature wins and perfect attendance. A convincing win by Brooksvilles Travis Nichols (two feature wins) in regular Figure 8s (Pure and Street Stocks) on June 22 culminated his triumphant return from a major crash in late April and pulled him into a second-place tie with Pnut Higginbotham (feature win) and Ronnie Schrefiels in the standings 10 points behind leader Jimmy Kruse (feature win). Apopkas Kory Abbot has a win at Citrus this year and leads the FUPS throwback Legends class in both points and wins (three) this year. The Hornet division offers cars for rent for fans to compete. Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m. and heat races begin at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand prices are $13 for adults, $9 for students and seniors and $5 for children age 11 and under (children under 42 inches are free). BUTCH CRAWFORD /Special to the ChronicleDunnellons Clint Foley leads the Modified Mini Stock class in feature wins with five. Annual event headlines full Saturday of racing at Citrus County Speedway Tebows future could depend on versatility Associated PressFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tim Tebow had a rough day throwing the ball in his first training camp practice. But he caught a short toss during a screenpassing drill. His future with the New England Patriots, if he has one, may depend on that kind of versatility rather than his questionable quarterbacking skills. And the arrest of tight end Aaron Hernandez, of course, his former teammate at Florida, could help his chances. Coach Bill Belichick wouldnt commit Friday to using Tebow only at quarterback, where his throwing mechanics were faulty while with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets. I think that well use Tim wherever we feel like hes best for the team, said Belichick, always careful not to tip his hand but not averse to dropping hints that may steer observers in the wrong direction, and I know thats what hes committed to doing as well, whatever that is. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Tebow has the size to play tight end and H-back but said hes only been in the quarterback room during positional meetings with the Patriots. But he departed from his insistence that he wanted to play only that position. Im going to do what coach asks me to do, he said. Belichick values players who can contribute at several spots. If Tebow can do that, it may buy him some time to improve on a motion that leads to wobbly, floating passes. Tebow and Hernandez were college stars as teammates for three years. They were reunited when the Patriots signed Tebow, who had been released by the Jets, on June 11. Associated PressNew England Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow competes during an NFL football practice Friday in Foxborough, Mass. Nows the time for Montoya Lean, mean JPM riding for his health and his job Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Juan Pablo Montoya keeps a detailed log of all his rides. Not in the stock car, but on his mountain bike. All of them, every daily 2-hour trek in sunny Miami where the stocky Colombian tries to pedal himself into shape. Hes never too far from his favorite twowheeled ride at the track, like Talladega and Charlotte, or any locale when he can find some open space and just go. Theres been so much cycling to keep track of, too: More than 70 rides, and he is closing in on 1,000 miles this year and counting. JPM, NASCAR driver, has morphed into JPM, fitness freak. His quest has even taken him to a pilates studio, where wife Connie convinced him to try a handful of classes. About the only part of his workout routine he wont detail is exactly how much weight hes dropped. But its clear by looking at his frame that hes in the best shape of his stock car career. Yes, he was tired of the flab, but not just because he was overweight, but because of what it represented. Hes doing it all with one goal in mind. I want to (expletive) succeed in this, he said. Im tired of sucking. Montoya just might turn it around in Indianapolis, because he was back on top of the Brickyard on Friday. Just like he was when he won the 2000 Indianapolis 500. Just like he could have been at least two other times in the Brickyard 400. Yes, it was only the top time in practice, but its a sign that Montoya will be a contender again at Indy. He needs to be, for the sake of his sanity and perhaps his job. Montoya is in the final year of his contract with Chip Ganassi Racing, where hes won two races in the eight years since he abruptly left Formula One for NASCAR. His only wins were on road courses, and hes not been to Victory Lane since 2010. Montoya heads into Sundays race at Indy ranked 23rd in the Sprint Cup standings with three top-10 finishes on the year. Ganassi wont be pinned down on Montoyas future as driver of the No. 42 Chevrolet. Were all trying to get results here. Were just working on results, he said. Juan has a deep history with our team, and we want to give him every opportunity to do well. All of our drivers who have deep histories with our team, we go out of our way to make sure they are given every opportunity. The opportunities have been few and far between for Montoya, who won the Indy 500 and the 1999 CART title driving for Ganassi but hasnt found the same success since reuniting with the car owner in NASCAR. Part of his struggles are linked to the rollercoaster performance of the Ganassi organization, which has failed to put together consistent seasons. The team owner ordered a massive organizational overhaul after the 2011 season, and the results are only now showing. Montoya, one of the highest regarded drivers in the world when he jumped to NASCAR, admits the struggles have been draining. Its hard to keep your head up when things are not going well, and you go to places where you know you can get a pole and run up front and get top-fives, and instead you are running 30th and are the slowest car on the track, Montoya said. Its hard because I know its not me. Associated PressSprint Cup Series driver Juan Pablo Montoya smiles Friday during practice for the Brickyard 400 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, JULY 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE As was the case before public hospitals came into existence, most hospital care was under the auspices of religious groups. For Jews, this posed the problem of the obtaining of kosher food, as well as the discrimination practices against Jewish doctors. Jewish hospitals were set up in major cities to alleviate these problems. One of the first hospitals to be set up for Jewish patients was the Jews Hospital of New York, now known as Mount Sinai Hospital, which was founded in 1852. It was to serve the indigent Jews, as well as new immigrants to New York. A major philanthropic contributor to this institution was American-born Sampson Simson, who donated the land on which the hospital was built at West 28th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, and served as the first president of the board of directors. Funding was also provided by private donations and government subsidies since non-Jews were also treated there. The 45-bed Jews Hospital of New York accepted its first patient on June 5, 1855. People of all faiths were welcome, especially at the emergency department, but the majority of the patients were Jews. With the outbreak of the Civil War, the demands for the hospitals services became greater, and in 1866, the hospital abandoned its sectarian charter and was renamed the Mount Sinai Hospital. Today, the hospital is one of the most prestigious in the country and is a 1,171-bed tertiary teaching hospital. Of the many commandments (mitzvot) that Jews are required to fulfill, visiting the sick, bikur cholim, is one of the most important. Helping a sick person physically or spiritually is a mitzvah that brings so much comfort to one that is ill. Calling, sending cards or visiting are wonderful ways to connect with a person who is ill. Jews have always had social service organizations to care for their poor, widows, children or indigent citizens. For this reason, Jewish settlers were allowed to settle in areas as long as they could provide social welfare for their own citizens. Giving this concept some thought, it is no surprise to me that so many Jews are Years ago I wrote a book about idols, which is just another word for sin. An idol is whatever you turn to first a person, possession, position, relationship, substance, belief or experience for comfort, security, identity, meaning, etc. Basically, anything other than God. As I wrote the book, I got halfway through it and decided I was tired of being smacked upside the head with my own idolatry. Sheesh. All I wanted to do was write about other peoples idols/sin and make a boatload of money. So, about halfway through the book I decided to write about an idol/sin that I was confident was not my problem. I dont lust after Oriental art, I dont bet on horse races, Im not a crack addict and I am certainly not one of those people who always have to be right. Except, I am one of those. At first I didnt recognize it in myself. After all, its not like Id rather be right than happy like some people, and I easily admit when Im wrong. No, my needing to be right is subtle and sneaky, and unless you knew my heart you wouldnt even recognize it in me. Or maybe you already do and youre just too polite to say anything to my face. But just in case Ive been able to dupe you, heres a heads up on what to expect upon having a conversation with me. First, be prepared to have the second-to-the-last word, because I always have the last word. (Thats because Im right.) Just so youll know what to expect, heres how it will look: Youll say something like, Its a nice day out. Then I will inform you that theres actually a 60 percent chance of rain and Hurricane Zelda is expected to hit by morning. Or youll tell me, I went to see Cats on Broadway, to which I will add, I heard they originally wanted to call it Skunks. I wont ever make anything up (other than the skunk thing just now), but I wont let anything slide by either without adding my two cents worth. I always have to add something, some bit of useless, unsolicited information that no one, not even me, cares about. Always. I just cant let anyone else have the last word. Next, be prepared to have me correct you when youre wrong, which is just a little public service gesture I like to offer, especially if you make the grave error of misusing the word anxious when you should have said eager. For example, you are eager to go to Disney World, not anxious if what you mean is you cant wait to go and are happy about it. You can be anxious to go, but only if you are filled with anxiety and dread because youre terrified of Mickey Mouse. However, dont worry. Im so good at it I can be quite winsome and polite that youll hardly notice Im knocking you down in order to build myself up. Years ago, my pastor told me about a woman at church who thought it was her spiritual gift and duty to critique his sermon each week. Every week, she would point out his errors. I remember being horrified. The nerve of that woman! Who would be so arrogant and self-righteous as to think it was her duty to point out errors in others? Oh. (I would be so arrogant and selfrighteous.) The truth is, I really hate when I do that. I hate it in others, hate when people do that to me, but I really, really hate when I do it to you. But Im getting better. Im more aware of when my mouth opens and I start talking about hurricanes and skunks on Broadway Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES Of course Im right See GRACE/ Page C4 Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO Pope Francis is praising the importance of the elderly during the Catholic Churchs festival of youth, saying grandparents are critical for passing on wisdom, family and religious heritage and are a treasure to be preserved and strengthened. Francis has made a point of not focusing just on the next generation of Catholics during World Youth Day, but on the older generation as well, part of his longstanding work caring for the elderly in Argentina and the gentle deference he shows his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Francis noted that Friday was Grandparents Day. He said: How important grandparents are for family life, for passing on the human and religious heritage which is so essential for each and every society. Francis celebrated Mass with his fellow Jesuits and heard confessions from young pilgrims in a Rio de Janeiro park on Friday ahead of one of the most solemn events of World Youth Day, a re-enactment of Christs crucifixion held at ground zero of Rios hedonistic life, Copacabana Beach. Francis was also offering a noontime prayer and meeting with a group of juvenile detainees, a priority of his ever since his days as archbishop of Buenos Aires and an expression of his belief that the Catholic Church must reach out to the most marginalized and forgotten of society. Even now as pope, he calls a group of youths in a Buenos Aires detention center every two weeks just to keep in touch. In the Rio park, a white tent was set up to receive the faithful for confession, with small makeshift confession booths off to the side. Five youths, chosen through a raffle, were selected to go to confession with Francis, the sacrament in which Catholics confess their sins and are forgiven. It was just five minutes, it followed the regular ritual of confession, but then Francis stayed and talked with us, said one of the five, Estefani Lescano, 21, a student from La Guaira, Venezuela. It was all very personal. He told us that young people have the responsibility of keeping the church alive and spreading the word of Christ. The sun finally came out on Friday, ending four days of rain that soaked pilgrims and forced the relocation of the festivals culminating Mass on Sunday. Instead, the Mass and the Saturday night vigil that precedes it will take place at Copacabana Beach rather than the mud pit that is the Guaratiba field, some 30 miles west of central Rio. On Thursday, Francis showed off his rebellious side, urging young Catholics to shake up the church and make a mess in their dioceses by going out into the streets to spread the faith. Its a message he put into practice by visiting one of Rios most violent slums and officially opening World Youth Day on a rain-soaked Copacabana Beach. Francis was elected pope on a mandate to reform the church, and in four short months he has started doing just that: He has broken longheld Vatican rules on everything from where he lays his head at night to how saints are made. He has cast off his security detail to get close to his flock, and his first international foray as pope has shown the faithful appreciate the gesture. Dubbed the slum pope for his work with the poor, Francis received a rapturous welcome in the Varginha shantytown on Thursday, part of a slum area of northern Rio so violent its known as the Gaza Strip. The 76year-old Argentine seemed entirely at home, wading into Pope tells youths to treasure elderly Judi SiegalJUDIS JOURNAL Long before Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare Advantage and Blue Cross, Jews were caring for their sick in compassionate hospital settings.

The Varginha visit was one of the highlights of Francis trip to Brazil, his first as pope. The surprise, though, came during his encounter with Argentine pilgrims, scheduled at the last minute in yet another sign of how this spontaneous pope is shaking up the Vaticans staid and often stuffy protocol. He told the thousands of youngsters, with an estimated 30,000 Argentines registered, to get out into the streets and spread their faith, saying a church that doesnt go out and preach simply becomes a civic or humanitarian group.

Patrick Fagan, director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute, said surveys have found that married couples who attend church every week have the most fulfilling sex lives. In a lecture on Porn in the Dorm at the Family Research Council, Fagan said thats information that college students probably werent taught in sex education classes. He said it also suggests that a students married parents may be the go-to experts on how to have fulfilling and enjoyable sex lives.

A South Dakota church that bills itself as the first Norwegian Lutheran Church in the Dakota Territory is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The St. Paul Lutheran Church in Elk Point was founded in 1863. The parish was originally known as the Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Congregation. The church in southeastern South Dakota church has been served by 20 pastors. Church spokesman Glenn Olson told KCAU-TV that the celebration is exciting at a time when the changing face of agriculture and population shifts make it difficult for rural churches to survive.4,500 crosses go missing from Durango ski hillDURANGO, Colo. Thousands of small crosses that were planted on a Colorado ski slope to bring attention to childhood poverty have gone missing. The Durango Herald reported volunteers with the First Baptist Church of Bayfield planted 4,500 crosses in a cross pattern on the citys ski slope and had a permit from the city to keep them there for a month. Police say the crosses were removed sometime between the night of July 9 and the morning of July 10. Sgt. Rita Warfield said the crosses might have been stolen to protest religious symbols in a public park. City Manager Ron LeBlanc said he approved the churchs project, thinking it more to be freedom of expression than a religious statement.Ex-priest seeks $450,000 from Wis. archdioceseMILWAUKEE The list of creditors for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee includes those you might expect to find in a bankruptcy case a bank, pension funds and a retirees health care plan. It also includes a priest removed from the priesthood amid allegations of child sexual abuse. The archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in 2011, saying it wouldnt have enough money if lawsuits filed by sexual abuse victims went against it. Hundreds of victims also filed claims. The claim filed by Marvin Knighton stands out because he was acquitted by a jury. But the church still removed him from the priesthood, saying two of three allegations against him had merit. Knighton is seeking back pay of $450,000.Netanyahu thanks Christians for supporting IsraelWASHINGTON Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has thanked thousands of Christians meeting in Washington for supporting the Jewish state. In a live satellite broadcast to Christians United for Israel, Netanyahu said hes an avid reader of the Bible, and that he and his son read their weekly Torah portion together every Saturday. Israels prime minister said rabbis and their students also hold Bible classes in his official residence. Netanyahu said that in addition to containing lessons for people everywhere, the Bible tells the story of the Jewish people a story he insisted is not over. Christians at the conference were urged to help the Jewish state survive amid turmoil in Egypt, civil war in Syria and Irans nuclear threat. ReligionBRIEFS From wire reports ALICIABANKS The Fayetteville ObserverFAYETTEVILLE, N.C. Stanley Ragin bowed his head. He clasped his hands in front of himself as he sat down. I thank you for life, Lord God. Im so thankful for today, he said. His eyes closed. The congregation of My Fathers House Christian Church in Fayetteville prayed with Ragin, who was dressed this Sunday morning in a peachcolored, collared shirt and pressed slacks. Every other day of the week, he wears green prison garb. Ragin, 40, is an inmate at Robeson Correctional Center in Lumberton. The pastor of the small church, which meets in a Bragg Boulevard storefront, drives 45 minutes each Sunday to bring Ragin to services. He is allowed only six hours outside the prisons barbed-wire fence, just once a week. But what Ragin has gained in those six hours, he says, has already made him a free man. The Lincoln projects in New Yorks Harlem Ragin called it home while growing up. He saw a lot before he was 18 years old: the rich hip-hop culture on street corners, and drug hustlers not far behind in what he calls the era of crack cocaine. Its where Ragin witnessed his brothers killing, something he does not like to talk about. The need to fend for himself turned Ragin to a path of drugs. Harlem, at that time, was an amusement park, so to speak. It was colorful. You hear about people driving fancy cars. I saw Porsches and BMWs. Those were people I looked up to, he said. Ragin dropped out of school in the seventh grade. He turned to running drugs across states. He could earn as much as $10,000 for one trip. It was a quick way to fund a music career and film documentaries. I tried to utilize the illegal means to finance the good means I had, he said. It cost him 11 years of his life. He served sentences on drug charges in New York, Maryland and New Jersey, but even that never phased him. It was part of the lifestyle. His three children in New Jersey were left without a father. Every time I tried to take off, I wound up getting locked up, he said. Gods been speaking to me for years and years. I was hard-headed, like most of us are. Ragin is now serving five years at Robeson Correctional on trafficking charges. In 2008, law enforcement found more than $25,000 of bundled heroin that Ragin concealed in a van while driving through Halifax County. He pleaded guilty. Ragin was not nervous about five more years in prison. The idea of where his life was heading and the family he left in New Jersey worried him more. His youngest was a newborn when he arrived at Robeson Correctional. He asked God one question. My prayer was for God to send me a teacher. No one taught me how to live. I had to learn by experience, he said. One day, Ragins case manager called him. A man named Reginald Johnston was looking to continue his ministry of working with inmates. Johnston and his fellow ministers at My Fathers House operate an outreach program called Capital Ministry Community Assistance Program Involving Training and Leadership. An aspect of the program, started in 2008, encourages church leaders to spread the gospel to jail and prison inmates. About 60 people regularly attend the church, which shares a brick building with a pawnshop in Bonnie Doone. There is no steeple, only a welcoming sign. Our ministry wants to take people in, even when their family wont, Johnston said. We want to help anyone who needs it. Each Sunday, Johnston drives to meet Ragin at the prisons gates. Ragin greets him with a smile, a firm handshake and a tight embrace. Sundays highlight Ragins week. It takes his mind off the routine of early mornings and 10-hour workdays. Ragin and Johnston spend the 45-minute car rides talking. Its not easy for Ragin to share what they discuss. Johnston is his teacher, a confidant. We talk about our weeks, days, scriptures. Its having a conversation with someone who is teaching me, Ragin said. Its enriching. Their time together is through the N.C. Department of Public Safetys Community Volunteer Leave Program. Inmates at minimum-security prisons can learn to make the transition back into the community after their release. More than 60 prisons statewide participate in the program, according to department spokesman Keith Acree. The inmates get minimal freedoms, such as attending church services or looking for work. Sponsors, such as Johnston, go through training by prison administration and must be with the inmate at all times outside prison, Acree said. Ministry looks to help inmates

Soon, bright yellow buses will be rolling down the streets of Citrus County and kids will be headed back to school for another adventurous year. But, before they pack up their backpacks, the libraries have one more special summer reading treat in store for all of the children who have diligently participated in the Citrus County Dig into Reading program a summer reading finale extravaganza. During the summer, we have wormed around in soil, dug into dinosaurs and even said argh me mateys! as we learned about pirates. Some of our programs even tied in with the statewide initiative Viva Florida 500, which is a year-long celebration of the past 500 years of modern Florida history, since the landing of Ponce de Leon in 1513. So, we learned about Floridas ancient people, Florida shipwrecks and even the geology of Florida. The summer reading program has been a great time; however, all good things must come to an end. But that doesnt mean we cant have a little last-minute fun! From 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at the Citrus County Auditorium in Inverness, kids will be treated to a summer reading finale program. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.

Learning leadership Special to the ChronicleThere are about 1,700 children in Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A guardian ad litem (GAL) is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He/she becomes familiar with the child and the childs case and makes recommendations to the court to help ensure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment for that child. Persons 21 years of age and older (young adults between the ages of 19 and 21 years of age are also eligible, working under the guidance and partnership with a certified volunteer GAL), who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training. On average, volunteers spend five to 10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. To learn more, call Lynn Sennett at 352-2745231 or email Lynn. Sennett@gal.fl.gov. For more information and an application, visit www. guardianadlitem.org.

C6SATURDAY, JULY27, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.C.J. Cherryh, a science fiction and fantasy author who has an asteroid named after her, said, Trade isnt about goods. Trade is about information. Goods sit in the warehouse until information moves them. For the last two weeks, we have been using the acronym trade to help find the right plays. We track the tricks, read the lead, audition the auction, deduce the danger, and eye the entries. Here is one more example. How should South play in four spades after West guesses well to lead a fourth-highest club five? When North raises three spades to four, he knows that there could be four top losers, but it might make or be a good sacrifice against a making four-heart contract for East-West. This deal is Easts problem. He should realize that if the defenders are going to win four tricks, they will be either three clubs (West started with queen-fourth) and the heart ace, or two clubs (West started with five clubs) and two hearts. So, East takes the first trick with his club king and cashes the club ace, noting that West plays the two, indicating that West started with five clubs. Now East must shift to a low heart. If West has the king, cashing the ace first works fine; but not here. The question is: Will South guess correctly? Finally, if West wins the third trick with the heart queen, how does he know to return a heart, not give East a club ruff? Because if East had begun with the ace-kingdoubleton of clubs, he would have won the first trick with the ace, then cashed the king.

(N) (Live)WGN News at NineBones Dear Annie: I visit my family every summer and help my aging mother with her huge yard. About a decade ago, she and my stepdad bought a house for me. It was understood that eventually I would be able to put my name on the deed, but at the time, my financial situation was overwhelming. Due to cutbacks at work and other problems, I had to declare bankruptcy. But I should have all my debts paid off in about two years. When I saw my mother today, my aunt was present. Mom made a comment about my finances that left me covered in a bucket of shame. She has never done this before. I am angry, but I suspect she has no clue what she did. I wonder whether she is losing her perception of appropriate behavior and can no longer keep a confidence. The problem is, my aunt is now curious about my financial situation and feels she has the right to inquire since my mother brought it to her attention. I dont know how to handle this. Any advice? California Dear California: It doesnt matter what your aunt thinks she is entitled to. You are not required to discuss your financial situation with anyone who isnt directly involved. When your aunt tries to get information from you, be polite but firm. Tell her, I appreciate your concern, but Id rather not discuss something so personal. Its possible your mothers comment indicated suppressed anger about this situation, and you might discuss it with her. Otherwise, please suggest she see her doctor for a complete evaluation of her mental and physical health. Dear Annie: I recently attended my 10-year high school reunion. When we started college, Facebook was just gaining traction. At the reunion, I was mingling with my classmates and catching up. If someone had posted on Facebook that they had gotten married or had a child, I would comment and say congratulations. There was one classmate who posted that she was going on a month-long trip to Europe. I told her that sounded fun. She responded by saying how awkward it was that I knew her personal business when we hadnt spoken in 10 years. If someone doesnt want others to know about their vacation plans, they shouldnt post them on their Facebook page for all to see. You can put as much or as little information as you desire on your profile. You also can control who sees it. Was it rude of me to discuss this? Awkward Turtle Dear Turtle: No. When people post things openly on Facebook, they are courting comments from anyone who sees their page, whether or not that is the intent. As you said, there are ways to limit exposure, but you have to set the controls to do so. Privacy is becoming a luxury of the past. It is ridiculous to publicize your life and then act offended when people notice. Still, the best method of handling such unpleasant encounters is to apologize for intruding and back away. Dear Annie: Betty wrote in response to N.N., suggesting that her husbands depression might be linked to celiac disease. I do not have celiac, but have battled with several serious health problems for years. I finally saw a nutritionist, who diagnosed me as highly sensitive to gluten. I thought she was a quack, but I gave it a try. After three days of eating no gluten and feeling better, I decided to have a graham cracker. For the next several days, I suffered with a migraine, cramps and an awful hangover feeling. My advice is, even if the celiac test comes back negative, he might try going without gluten to see how he feels. My nutritionist had me add more lean protein and safe carbs such as quinoa and buckwheat to my diet. Its been a year, and my symptoms and depression have much improved.
