A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerKings Bay stands unique in the world of manatees. It is the only place in the world where visitors can swim with and get up close and personal with the floating giants. Some overeager or curious visitors have habits of poking, holding, chasing and crowding the gentle sea cows as they rest or feed in the bay, according to officials. Those actions are explicitly barred, according to the rules of conduct, introduced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service after it designated Kings Bay as a Manatee Protection Area in 2012. And, the rules have done very little to stem what amounts to harassment of manatees, especially by some on guided-tour operators, said Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge spokesman Ivan Vicente. But the head of the local ecotourism and guided-tour operators organization rejects such claims and instead points a finger at private parties venturing into the bay aboard their own boats or in rental boats. I have seen with my own eyes people from the tour boats harassing the manatees. Some of the tour-boat captains have been good about telling their passengers about the rules, but I think some allow it for extra tips, Vicente said recently. Following the introduction of the federal rules, refuge officials introduced their own inhouse rules hinged on securing and maintaining a special-use permit for tour operators. Vicente said at the time: First strike, you are gone for a KATIEHENDRICK Special to the ChronicleKristen Howard Booth is no stranger to the spotlight.

Assistant County Administrator Cathy Pearson and Development Services Director Vince Cautero applied for the job, which became open when Thorpe announced his retirement. Other known applicants include former sheriffs office bureau commander Bob Blume Jr., who retired in February, and Kenny Blocker, assistant superintendent of schools for the Citrus County School District. In total, 47 people applied for the post but several were discounted because they didnt meet the minimum qualifications for education or experience, human resources director Sherry Anderson said. Applications were due Thursday. Thorpe announced his retirement in May, but said he would stay on the job until his replacement is hired.

Even though the Crystal River area nuclear plant, known as CR3, has been offline since 2009 and is now retired, Duke customers will continue to pay for a planned $617 million attempt to increase the plants power output. Monday, the PSC agreed to Dukes request to delay a determination on the companys request to recover about $175 million from ratepayers in 2014. About $106 million relates to the Levy County nuclear plant which, last week, Duke said it will not construct and about $69 million is for CR3. Customers already pay for those projects.

Women across the U.S. are risking their lives for black market procedures to make their buttocks bigger, often involving homeimprovement materials such as silicone injected by people with no medical training. Some want to fill out a bikini or a pair of jeans. Others believe a bigger bottom will bring them work as music video models or adult entertainers. Whatever the reason, they are seeking cheaper alternatives to plastic surgery sometimes with deadly or disfiguring results. Deaths from black market buttocks injections have been reported in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Nevada and New York. An interior decorator in Mississippi faces trial in the deaths of two women who were injected at her house. Though there is little data on the procedures or injuries they cause, doctors and authorities said they are seeing them more often. Online forums used to set up the illegal procedures have attracted thousands of responses. Some men also seek out buttocks enhancements, but the procedures are much more popular among women. Very big buttocks have been popular in hip-hop videos for years, celebrated by songs like the 1990s hit Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot, with lyrics declaring, I like big butts and I cannot lie. But Dionne Stephens an assistant professor of psychology at Florida International University who studies race, gender and sexuality in hip-hop culture said celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian have the shapely body part popular among an increasing number of women of all races and ethnicities. The problem is that some of them toss caution aside when black market procedures are the only ones they can afford. It is very scary that this is happening, Stephens said. For 46-year-old Apryl Michelle Brown, the path to a black-market injection started with people teasing her as a child about having a pancake butt. Years later, a woman walked in Browns beauty salon in California and told her she could make her butt bigger with injections. It seemed like divine intervention, Brown recalled. It was just something I felt inside of me, that I felt would make me better. I just didnt want the pancake booty anymore, she said. The following week, she was at the womans house getting injections and followed up later with more. It wasnt long before the injection sites got hard and excruciatingly painful. Brown eventually began looking for doctors to remove the material, which she learned was an industrial silicone available at a home improvement store. After surgery in 2011, a staph infection left her near death. Both hands and feet were amputated. Today, Brown has a website and speaks on the topic, trying to convince others that they are beautiful the way they are. I would never want anybody else to go through this, not even lose one finger, much less all their limbs, she said. Despite a lack of hard numbers, theres anecdotal evidence that the illegal procedures are becoming more common. In April 2007, someone posted this question on the website Topix.com: is there any truth to this madness about some type of butt injections to make your butt bigger someone enlighten me. There have been more than 14,000 responses, with new ones almost every day. Some of the responses are horror stories. More of them go like this one, posted recently: Does anyone know of a good injector in Los Angeles County? Or this one on July 10, Safe reliable injector will be in NJ the week of the 15th. Booking appointments now. Investigators said a Georgia woman who died after getting injections in Mississippi in 2012 used the Internet to find someone to inject her. First, she connected with an adult entertainer and hip hop model named Natasha Stewart, who goes by the moniker Pebbelz Da Model. The two met in New York and Gordon paid Stewart $200 for a referral, prosecutors said. Authorities said Gordon was told the injections would be performed by a trained medical professional. In March 2012, Gordon drove with a friend from Atlanta to Jackson, Miss., to the home of 53-year-old Tracey Lynn Garner, also known as Morris Garner, a floral and interior decorator with no medical training. The cost was $1,500. Early in the case, authorities referred to Garner as a man, but her attorney said she had surgery to change gender. Gordon died of blood clots in her lungs a few days later. There was so much of a silicone-like substance in her buttocks that it spilled onto the floor and all over the place when a medical examiner cut into her during the autopsy, according to an investigators testimony from September. Garner and Stewart, 40, are currently charged in Hinds County, Miss., with depraved-heart murder. They have pleaded not guilty. They are scheduled for trial next year.

The commission working to preserve the culture of slave descendants on the sea islands in four southeastern states is looking for its first executive director. The Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission announced in May that it would be seeking an executive director and this week formally opened a national search, working with Millbrooke Human Resource Consulting to fill the position. Were thrilled to be at this point. A great deal of work was accomplished, and we are ready to find the right person to run the day-to-day operation, Althea Sumpter, the vice chairwoman of the commission who is heading the search committee, said in a statement. The success of the Gullah Geechee Corridor will be partly dependent on the commission finding the right candidate for this position. The qualifications for the executive director include, among other things, knowledge of the Gullah Geechee culture, experience in fundraising and experience in strategic planning. A 272-page management plan for the corridor including parts of the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida was more than a dozen years in the making and received final approval from the U.S. Department of the Interior in May. The culture is known as Gullah in the Carolinas and Geechee in Georgia and Florida. The corridor reaches along the coast from Jacksonville, N.C., to just south of Jacksonville. The culture survived for decades because of the relative isolation of the areas sea islands but now is threated by rapid coastal development. The management plan focuses on educating people about the culture, documenting sites important to it and developing economic opportunities for those who live there. In developing the plan, public meetings were held in all four states, and more than 1,000 sites significant to the culture were identified. The executive director will be required to help oversee the implementation of the management plan. The last day to apply is Aug. 29. The effort to preserve the corridor began in 2000 when U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the first black congressman from South Carolina since Reconstruction, asked for a study of Gullah resources. Congress approved the corridor in 2006 and then the work on developing the management plan began in earnest. The commission earlier this year opened its own office in Charleston.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Mass murderer executed Associated PressSTARKE A man convicted of murdering eight people in Miami-Dade County in the late 1970s was executed Monday night at the Florida State Prison, despite his lawyers pleas that he was too mentally ill to be put to death. John Errol Ferguson, 65, died at 6:17 p.m., following a lethal injection. The execution came less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court denied a final request for a stay. Before the execution, Ferguson made a brief but unintelligible statement before 25 witnesses. At about three minutes into the procedure, he moved his head, strained his neck, moved his feet, put his head back down and closed his eyes. The entire execution took 16 minutes. About three dozen people protested across the street from the prison. Ferguson and two others were convicted of murdering six people in 1977 during a robbery at a Carol City house used by marijuana dealers. Ferguson dressed as a utility worker to gain access and let his accomplices inside. Most of the victims were friends who happened to drop by the house while Ferguson and the other men were there. The victims were blindfolded and bound, and the encounter turned violent after a mask fell off one of Fergusons gang members and his face was spotted by a victim. The decision was made to kill all eight people in the house. Two survived. At the time, it was the worst mass slaying ever in Miami-Dade County. Ferguson also was convicted of the 1978 murder of a 17-year-old couple, Brian Glenfeldt and Belinda Worley, from Hialeah. They were shot as Ferguson, dressed as a police officer, tried to rob them while they were parked at a lovers lane. Worley was raped. The randomness of the crime and the youth of the two victims stunned many in Miami. Ferguson confessed to killing the two kids after he was arrested in April 1978 for the earlier killings, court records show. Ferguson was sentenced to die in both cases; he unsuccessfully used the insanity defense in the trial over the teenagers murders. The issue of Fergusons mental stability was a current that ran through his life, and his execution came after months of court appeals. Earlier in the day, Ferguson chose to eat the same food other prisoners were being served as his final meal: A meat and vegetable patty, white bread, stewed tomatoes, potato salad, carrots and iced tea. John Fergusondied by lethal injection. Man had killed eight people in the late 1970s Civil Air Patrol visits Rays game Doctors urge sale of CMH Staff reportTwo organizations representing Citrus County physicians have shown overwhelming support for the sale of Citrus Memorial hospital. The Citrus County Medical Society and Florida Welcare Alliance met together July 30 to hear presentations from the four hospital bidders: Tampa General Hospital, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Health Management Associates (HMA) and RegionalCare Hospital Partners. After hearing presentations, about 40 physicians attending the meeting took a vote. According to a news release, a significant majority preferred for a sale of the hospital to any of the three for-profit companies HMA, HCA or RegionalCare. The three for-profit companies are recommending either a sale or money-up-front longtime lease of Citrus Memorial. Tampa General proposed an alliance with Citrus Memorial with no cash on the table and an undetermined amount of capital investment. The Citrus County Hospital Board, which owns the hospital, removed Tampa General from consideration after hearing bid presentations on July 10. The Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, which leases the hospital, voted last week to give Tampa General another opportunity to update its bid. Hospital board trustee Bob Priselac said he thought trustees would consider any serious offer from Tampa General. Members of the foundation also eliminated RegionalCare and HMA from its consideration. In the meantime, HMA announced it was being sold to Community Health Systems. An HMA representative told hospital attorney Clark Stillwell the company wanted another chance to bid. Foundation members are expected to discuss the bids further in September. Winning bid $578,600PATFAHERTY Staff writerCitrus Countys nautical landmark, Crows Nest Island, has been sold through an online auction. The property, owned by Stan Olsen, had been home to a water access-only restaurant that closed early in the last decade. The original structure dates back to the 1960s and was subsequently expanded. A power line winds its way out to provide electricity and a desalination unit provided fresh water. The site is at the mouth of the Homosassa River. The sale included the restaurant building, docks, about an acre of dry land and about 69 acres of submerged land and marsh land. The actual crows nest is gone, but the restaurant and bar equipment are still in place, and tables for outdoor dining are still on the deck. The wellweathered restaurant supply barge is still tethered to the long wood dock. The auction was announced in early July. It was handled by Fisher Auction, which conducted tours for perspective buyers. The bid floor was $90,000, plus a 10 percent buyers premium. It has been previously listed at $1.5 million according to Francis D. Santos, executive vice president of Fisher Auction. The online only auction ran from July 22 to 25. According to the Fisher Auction website, the property sold for $578,600. The sale has not closed yet and no other details were available.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

Eat balanced meals and healthy snacks and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Children play hard and they get dehydrated, Hoag said. They drink soda and juice, but its important to drink water, as well. Get daily exercise. Hoag said activity during school hours isnt enough and kids need physical activity every day adults, too. Get adequate sleep. According to information from the Centers for Disease Control, school-age children (age 5 to 10) need between 10 and 11 hours of sleep per night and children age 11 to 17 need between eight and nine hours. Your body needs time to recharge, Hoag said. Also, a lack of sleep lowers the bodys immunity and makes you more likely to come down with a cold or flu. Hoag suggests setting a regular bedtime and sticking to it. Keep immunizations up to date and get regular doctors checkups. Talk to your pediatrician about vitamins or other supplements, Hoag said. Cultivate good hygiene habits. Dont share food, drinks, hairbrushes or personal care items. Brush your teeth and wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer. Hoag said conjunctivitis (pinkeye) hasnt been a problem, even though it can be if one infected child rubs his or her eyes and goes without washing his or her hands. Also, head lice shows up at least once during the school year and can spread. Thats why its important to maintain good hygiene habits. Sharing is good, but not when it comes to sharing germs. s a parent, you want your kids to learn to share, but not when it comes to germs. As the new school year ramps up, so does the opportunity to spread cold and flu germs and dont forget pinkeye and head lice. Although no one can completely avoid germs, there are steps you and your kids can take to reduce susceptibility to getting sick. Here are five easy germ-fighting strategies from Jessica Hoag, student health specialist for Citrus County schools, to keep your kids as healthy as possible and keep their immunity high during the school year: A Nancy Kennedy

week; two strikes, you are gone for a month; and three strikes, you are out for the year. But that rule applied to the companies that owned tour outfits. Vicente said for the 2014-15 winter manatee season, the rules will make captain certification a condition for getting a special-use permit, and sanctions will apply to the individual captain who fails to properly instruct passengers about proper etiquette in interactions with manatees. I keep trying to say over and over, the manatees are here to rest and feed, period. You can swim in the water and just passively observe them. Do not harass them. How would you feel if you are resting and eating and people keep harassing you, Vicente asked. Capt. Michael Birns, president of the local Manatee EcoTourism Association (META), said the incidence of harassment from guided-tour boats has plummeted. The culture is changing, but the fact is that the majority of the captains love these animals. The ones that are breaking the rules are a conspicuous minority, Birns said. He said his organization has found that most of the rule violations are committed by private boat owners and those in rentals. He said data from renowned manatee scientist Dr. Bob Bonde shows manatee herds that congregate in Kings Bay are among the healthiest and most robust, which only supports his notion that tour operators also care about the manatees well-being and their abilities to thrive. Birns said META is working with Bonde and others to devise their own voluntary rules of conduct and, they hope, have it ready for the start of the busy winter season. We think whenever a captain is seen breaking the rules, especially if it is their first time, that could be a teachable moment, Birns said. Outgoing refuge manager Michael Lusk said he has also seen improvement in the conduct of tour captains. I am not saying there is no room for improvement, especially for the new ones, but I think a lot of captains are following the rules, Lusk added. Vicente hopes the new selfpolicing rules META is putting together and planning on implementing this year will help improve compliance.

Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO When two police officers tore little Chico from the arms of Elizete Carmona, they said it was for its own good. After all, 71-year-old women arent meant to live with endangered tufted capuchin monkeys. But the case has upset many in Brazil, where thousands of people have signed an online petition calling on Sao Paulo state environmental officials to return Chico to the only home the monkey has known for the past 37 years. Its illegal to keep wild animals as pets in Brazil, especially those classified as endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Natures Red List of threatened species, as the tufted capuchin monkey has been. But the Carmona family contends Chico is completely domesticated and might not survive the stress of separation. When the officers came to their house in the city of San Carlos on Saturday, Chico grabbed onto Carmona and hugged her tight, one of the womans sons, Everaldo Furlan, told the Globo television network. Carmona said she was devastated when he was pulled away. I dont know if I will be able to bear it, she told Globo. For me, Ive lost a son. Theyve taken my son away. Multiple calls to Sao Paulos environmental police went unanswered on Monday and officials at the Sao Carlos City Hall said they were unable to comment on the case. There was no listing for a Carmona family phone. The Carmonas adopted Chico in 1976, decades before a 1998 law that banned the acquisition and possession of wild animals. Chico was brought from central Brazil by a truck driver, who gave it away after the monkey bit one of his children. The cat-sized monkey has honey-colored eyes, golden fur and a black Mohawk atop his head. Longtime NBC News reporter John Palmer dies at 77 Associated PressWASHINGTON John Palmer, the longtime correspondent for NBC News who died Saturday after a brief illness, was remembered by former colleagues as a hardworking, gracious reporter who moved easily from war zones to the White House and who brought a reassuring voice to news broadcasts. Palmer, 77, died Saturday at George Washington University Hospital of pulmonary fibrosis, according to his wife, Nancy. God bless John Palmer, tireless reporter, always a gentleman, loving husband and doting father, former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw wrote on Twitter. He said the death of his friend of nearly 50 years was heartbreaking. Palmer worked for NBC from 1962 to 1990, and then returned to the network from 1994 until 2002. He became a familiar face to viewers of the Today show during much of the 1980s, delivering the news in a straightforward, nononsense manner at a time when the program often led in the ratings. NBC News praised Palmer in a statement Saturday as a brilliant, brave, and tireless journalist who guided viewers through many of the most significant events of the past half-century from the early days of the civil rights movement through the tragedy of 9/11. He covered five presidents and traveled to every corner of the world, always showing the empathy and compassion that helped set him apart, the statement said. His kindness is remembered by all of us, and it built lasting bonds throughout our news division. A native of Kingsport, Tenn., Palmer was a graduate of Northwestern University and held a masters degree from Columbia University. He got his start as a reporter in Atlanta in 1960, according to a news segment on Palmer that aired on the NBC Nightly News on Saturday, and two years later moved up to the network. In the 1970s, he was based in Beirut, covering the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, the war in Cyprus and the civil war in Angola. He later served as a correspondent in Paris and at the White House. In April 1980 he landed one of his biggest scoops, breaking the news of the Carter administrations failed attempt to rescue the American hostages being held in Iran. Eight U.S. servicemen died when a helicopter crashed into a C-130 transport plane at a staging area in Iran. The rescue mission had been aborted and eight Americans had died, Palmer told viewers. His reporting on the story brought him the Merriman Smith Memorial Award for excellence in presidential news coverage, making him the first broadcast journalist to receive that honor. John Palmer brought to the White House beat his foreign policy experience and a steady reassuring voice, in good times and in bad, NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell said in the tribute to Palmer that aired Saturday night. It was also at NBCs Washington news bureau that Palmer met his wife, Nancy, a Nightly News producer. In 1982, he became news anchor on the Today show during the highly successful run of Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel as co-hosts. He remained there until 1989, when he was abruptly replaced by Deborah Norville, who was being groomed for a co-host role, and handed her old job on the show that preceded it, NBC News at Sunrise. Norville succeeded Pauley shortly afterward but was herself replaced after the shows ratings plummeted. In 1986, Palmer anchored the first hours of NBCs coverage of the Challenger space shuttle disaster, as well as other special reports. Palmer left the network in 1990 to anchor a syndicated news program called Instant Recall, interviewing figures such as Carter, Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, Anwar Sadat, Jonas Salk and Chuck Yeager. He also hosted the weekly Discovery Journal on The Discovery Channel, and anchored a daily newscast on the TV channel of the Christian Science Monitor. In 1994, he was invited back to NBC as a Washington-based national correspondent. Speaking to anchor Brian Williams on NBC sister network MSNBC upon his retirement in 2002, Palmer looked back on his tenure with satisfaction, including the access it gave him to a succession of the nations chief executives. I was enriched as a kid from the East Tennessee mountains, said the Kingsport, Tenn., native, to be able to go fishing with Jimmy Carter, to go to the movies with Ronald Reagan, and to play golf with Bill Clinton. After exiting NBC, he continued to work in journalism, including through hosting roles on Retirement Living TV, a network dedicated to seniors. Several of Palmers colleagues praised him on Twitter on Saturday evening. Major Garrett, chief White House correspondent for CBS News, described Palmer as a brilliant, competitive, ethical and gentle man. Susan Page, Washington bureau chief of USA Today, said she first met Palmer at the Reagan White House and described him as one of the kindest/most joyful reporters on the beat. NBC News reporter Chuck Todd said Palmer epitomized professionalism at NBC News. And he was always generous with advice and counsel. A great news man. On Saturdays Nightly News segment, Andrea Mitchell observed that her longtime colleague loved Sinatra, golf and fishing, but most treasured being a husband and father. He and his wife, Nancy, have three grown daughters, one of whom is a producer for the Today show, one who works in the entertainment industry and one who is in Washington pursuing a journalism career.

John Sandy Woodward, who led the Royal Navy task force during the 1982 Falklands War, has died. He was 81. In announcing his death Monday, Britains defense ministry did not give a cause. But the BBC said Woodward died after a long illness. Prime Minister David Cameron said Woodward was a truly courageous and decisive leader. We are indebted to him for his many years of service and the vital role he played to ensure that the people of the Falkland Islands can still today live in peace and freedom, Cameron said. A career sailor who joined the navy at 13 and rose to command submarines, Woodward was in charge of the naval force dispatched by then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher after Argentina seized the South Atlantic islands, home to some 2,000 British residents, in April 1982. Britain retook the territory 10 weeks later, after a war that killed 649 Argentines, 255 British troops and three islanders. One of Woodwards most contentious decisions was the sinking of the Argentine warship General Belgrano, killing 323 of its crew. It was a turning point in the war, but the attack was controversial because the ship appeared to be leaving the British exclusion zone when it was sunk. Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II after the war, Woodward later published a book about the conflict, One Hundred Days. He had recently spoken out against cuts to Britains armed forces, which he said would make it impossible for Britain to recapture the Falklands if they were invaded again. First Sea Lord Adm. George Zambellas said Woodward had been undaunted by the challenge of fighting a capable enemy over 8,000 miles from the U.K., in the most demanding and extreme of weather conditions, and against uncertain odds. Woodward was later deputy chief of the defense staff before taking up a ceremonial post as flag aide-de camp to Queen Elizabeth II. Associated PressTask Force commanders, Maj. Gen. Jeremy Moore, left, commander of the Falkland Islands Land Forces, and Rear Adm. Sandy Woodward, right, overall commander of the Task Force, sit together July 5, 1982, aboard the flagship HMS Hermes during the Falklands campaign. British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday hailed the heroic command of Falklands Task Force leader Sir John Sandy Woodward, who died at 81 after a long illness.

US court: Pa. school cant ban boobies Associated PressPHILADELPHIA A federal appeals court ruled Monday that a Pennsylvania school district cannot ban I (heart) Boobies! bracelets, rejecting the districts claim that the slogan designed to promote breast cancer awareness among young people is lewd. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also concluded that school officials didnt prove the bracelets were disruptive. Because the bracelets here are not plainly lewd and because they comment on a social issue, they may not be categorically banned, Judge D. Brooks Smith wrote in the 9-5 decision. The ruling is a victory for two Easton Area School District girls who challenged the school rule in 2010 with help from the American Civil Liberties Union. Easton is one of several school districts around the country to ban the bracelets, which are distributed by the nonprofit Keep A Breast Foundation of Carlsbad, Calif. ACLU lawyer Mary Catherine Roper said the ruling supports the rights of students to discuss important topics. It explicitly says school children talk about important things, and when they (do) ... thats the kind of speech we want to protect and promote, Roper said. The teens, Brianna Hawk and Kayla Martinez, testified that they merely hoped to promote awareness of the disease at their middle school. They filed suit when they were suspended for defying the ban on their schools Breast Cancer Awareness Day. In their dissent Monday, the five judges said the majority had wrongly reasoned that schools cannot limit student speech involving social commentary, even if it could reasonably be deemed lewd, vulgar, plainly offensive, or constituting sexual innuendo. The school district kept the litigation alive, appealing when a lower court judge ruled for the girls. District solicitor John Freund complained that Smiths ruling leaves schools with little guidance about where they can draw the line. The majority, in the 74page opinion, leaves school districts in the lurch as to which standards to apply when increasingly aggressive double-entendres come into school in the guise of some social or political cause, he said. Easton officials have 90 days to decide whether to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. Freund did not expect a quick decision, and questioned whether any one district has the duty to make constitutional law for everyone else in an era of budget constraints. He believes the bracelets have a sexual undertone that invites disruption in the classroom. Middle school is a witchs brew of hormones and curiosity, Freund argued in previous court sessions, when he called the bracelets cause-based marketing energized by sexual double-entendres. The full appeals court elected to hear the school districts appeal in February rather than leave it to a three-judge panel. During those arguments, Judge Dolores Sloviter said she did not see the slogan as sexual, and told the packed courtroom that she had once lost a colleague on the court to breast cancer. increase by 89 cents per month for an average bill; customers currently pay about $3.45 a month for costs associated with CR3. Duke will recover approximately $265 million over seven years. Commissioner Eduardo Balbis raised a concern that Duke is recovering an increased rate prior to PSC approval. I am having a hard time with the 89 cent increase, he said. In this case, we are raising rates without a bit of evidence in the record. Duke attorney John T. Burnett said the increase would be refunded to customers, with interest, if the commission does not approve it. Conversely, if the money is not collected and the PSC supports Dukes position, customers would have to make up the difference with interest. Through a complex series of discussions, we came to a resolution that resolves our concerns, said Charles Rehwinkel, Office of Public Counsel (OPC). The amount that is for recovery is the amount the company proposed based on recovery amortizing the costs over a seven-year period. It results in an increase from last year just because of the way the math works. Balbis also raised an issue about the Levy plant, saying previous testimony supported its long-term feasibility. Burnett said that testimony was no longer valid. Duke requested delaying the nuclear cost recovery hearing due to the pending settlement agreement, which cancels the proposed $24.2 billion Levy nuclear plant and paves the way for Duke to recover any costs incurred for a new natural gas plant. Developed with the OPC and other parties to the process, the revisions to the 2012 settlement agreement also has provisions for recovering CR3, costs, the futures of CR1 and CR2 coal units and replacement fuel costs.

Associated PressALEXANDRIA, Va. Imagine having a child who was born with cataracts and brain damage, and develops dementia and other ailments more often found in the elderly and not knowing what would cause such ailments. Parents who share such experiences because their children have the rare genetic disease Cockayne syndrome recently gathered with their families near Washington so their kids could meet others like themselves. Scientists and researchers joined them to observe symptoms and search for ways to provide treatment. Experts say children with Cockayne syndrome are mostly happy and jovial, despite their conditions. They often experience poor growth, premature aging and sensitivity to sunlight. Some may develop bits of gray hair, wrinkled skin or high blood pressure. Those with severe cases often live only a few years, while less severe onsets can affect people into their 40s. Scientists are still searching for answers about the disease, estimated to affect one in 500,000 children. Its difficult to diagnose. Jackie Clark said she knew something wasnt right with her baby, Gigi, shortly after she was born, even though doctors said everything was fine. Soon they found Gigi had cataracts. They later found a problem with her nerve endings that made her itchy all the time. Slowly, everything started to unravel as we discovered that she couldnt hear and she wasnt developing right, Clark said. It took us five years before we were able to figure out that she had Cockayne syndrome. At that point, she was already close to the end of her lifespan. She died four months later. Now Clark leads the Share and Care Cockayne Syndrome Network and organizes a conference each year for families to meet. She said the gatherings help because the disease can be isolating. Dr. Edward Neilan, a leading researcher and pediatrician who has treated children with Cockayne at Boston Childrens Hospital, and a handful of other researchers often attend the conferences to help them search for answers in recognizing and treating the disease. Once youve seen a condition, it takes on a personal, memorable aspect to you and becomes easier to recognize he said. But if youve never seen it before and youre only relying on textbooks, its very hard to recognize something that youve never seen before. Genetic testing can detect mutations that cause the disease, but to diagnose the condition in a child, a doctor would have to suspect Cockayne in order to test the patients cells, experts said. Many patients develop a distinct facial appearance, and some families self-diagnose their children and seek help. The Share and Care Cocayne Syndrome Network is at http://cockayne syndrome.net.

Lab-grown hamburger short on flavorMARIACHENG AP medical writerLONDON The food of the future could do with a pinch of seasoning and maybe some cheese. Two volunteers who took the first public bites of hamburger grown in a laboratory gave it good marks for texture but agreed there was something missing. I miss the salt and pepper, said Austrian nutritionist Hanni Ruetzler. U.S. journalist Josh Schonwald confessed to a difficulty in judging a burger without ketchup or onions or jalapenos or bacon. Both tasters shunned the bun, lettuce and sliced tomatoes offered to them to concentrate on the flavor of the meat itself. Mark Post, the Dutch scientist who led the team that grew the meat from cattle stem cells, regretted having served the patty without his favorite topping: aged gouda cheese. That would have enhanced the whole experience tremendously, he told The Associated Press. He said he was pleased with the reviews: Its not perfect, but its a good start. Post, whose team at Maastricht University in the Netherlands developed the burger over five years, hopes that making meat in labs could eventually help feed the world and fight climate change although that goal is probably a decade or two away, at best. The first (lab-made) meat products are going to be very exclusive, said Isha Datar, director of New Harvest, an international nonprofit that promotes meat alternatives. These burgers wont be in Happy Meals before someone rich and famous is eating them. Sergey Brin, a cofounder of Google, announced that he funded the 250,000-euro ($330,000) project, saying he was motivated by a concern for animal welfare. Were trying to create the first cultured beef hamburger, he said in a videotaped message. From there, Im optimistic we can really scale up by leaps and bounds. Scientists agreed that improving the flavor probably wont be hard. Taste is the least (important) problem since this could be controlled by letting some of the stem cells develop into fat cells, said Stig Omholt, director of biotechnology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Adding fat to the burgers this way would probably be healthier than getting it from naturally chunky cows, said Omholt, who was not involved in the project. He called Mondays tasting a publicity stunt but not in a bad way. He said it was a smart way to draw public attention, and possibly investor funds, to efforts to develop lab-grown meat. Posts team made the meat from shoulder muscle cells of two organically raised cows. The cells were put into a nutrient solution to help them develop into muscle tissue, and they grew into small strands of meat. It took nearly 20,000 strands to make a single 5ounce patty, which for Mondays event was seasoned with salt, egg powder and breadcrumbs. Red beet juice and saffron were added to help the burger look more meatlike; Post said the labmade patty had a yellowish tinge. Im a vegetarian, but I would be first in line to try this, said Jonathan Garlick, a stem cell researcher at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston. He has used similar techniques to make human skin, but wasnt involved in the burger research. Experts say new ways of producing meat are needed to satisfy growing carnivorous appetites without exhausting resources. By 2050, the Food and Agriculture Organization predicts global meat consumption will double as more people in developing countries can afford it. Raising animals destined for the dinner table takes up about 70 percent of all agricultural land. The animal rights group PETA has thrown its support behind the lab-meat initiative. As long as theres anybody whos willing to kill a chicken, a cow or a pig to make their meal, we are all for this, said Ingrid Newkirk, PETAs president and co-founder. Instead of the millions and billions (of animals) being slaughtered now, we could just clone a few cells to make burgers or chops, she said. If the product is ever ready for market, national food authorities will likely require data proving the lab meat is safe; there is no precedent. Some experts said officials might regulate the process used to make such meat, similar to how they monitor beer and wine production. Only one patty was cooked Monday, and the testers each took less than half of it. Post said he would take the leftovers home so his kids could have a taste.

Egypt: Envoys seek bridge between hard choices Associated PressCAIRO Top U.S., European and Arab envoys visited a jailed Muslim Brotherhood leader Monday on a mission to ease tensions between Egypts military-backed government and supporters of ousted Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. No details of the meeting emerged, but a European Union official spoke of confidence-building measures, and the two rival camps appeared to be facing critical choices 33 days after the military overthrew democratically elected Morsi. For the military, failure to disperse the Islamists Cairo sit-ins peacefully would leave it little choice but to use force, provoking a bloodbath that would tarnish its image and cost it world support. For the Muslim Brotherhood, a deadly confrontation would risk a ban from politics and a sweeping crackdown. Already, some 250 people have been killed since Morsis ouster, including at least 130 in two major clashes between security forces and supporters of the deposed president on July 8 and again on July 26-27. The talks between U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Khairat elShater took place in the prison where the Muslim Brotherhood figure is being held. Burns was accompanied by Foreign Ministers Khalid bin Mohamed Al-Attiyah of Qatar and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, and EU envoy Bernardo Leon. No details of the meeting were given. U.S. senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham arrived in Cairo on Monday at President Barack Obamas request to press senior Egyptians for a quick return to civilian rule. A European Union official in Brussels said diplomats were working on confidence-building measures such as releasing detained Brotherhood officials, dropping charges against other group members and dispersing the pro-Morsi sit-ins held at two squares on opposite ends of the Egyptian capital. Yet neither side in the stalemate has shown much interest in making concessions. Our position of full reversal of (the) military coup is unchanged, tweeted a Brotherhood spokesman, Gehad el-Haddad. Ahmed el-Muslemani, a spokesman for Adly Mansour, the current interim president, said not a single step of the military-sponsored political road map announced the day of Morsis ouster would be changed as part of any mediation. He also ruled out a referendum on the transition plan. Mohammed Aboul-Ghar, leader of the liberal Social Democratic party, said the Brotherhood has already moved beyond Morsi but has yet to offer the militarybacked government any concessions on the sit-ins that would lure it to the negotiating table.
Jeff Bezos to buy Washington PostWASHINGTON Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos is buying The Washington Post and other newspapers for $250 million. The longtime publisher, The Washington Post Co., announced the deal Monday. Bezos is buying the paper as an individual. Amazon.com Inc. is not involved. Washington Post chairman and CEO Donald Graham called Bezos a uniquely good new owner. He said the decision was made after years of newspaper industry challenges. The company, which owns the Kaplan education business and several TV stations, will change its name but didnt say what the new name will be. Bezos said in a statement that he understands the Posts critical role in Washington and said its values wont change.Drakes cakes to return next monthNEW YORK Twinkies are already back on shelves and now the new owners of Drakes cakes say Coffee Cakes, Devil Dogs, Ring Dings and Yodels will return next month. A spokesman for McKee Foods Corp. said the company plans to bring back the snack cakes in the third week of September. The company is still deciding whether to bring back Funny Bones. McKee, which makes Little Debbie snack cakes, snapped up Drakes cakes from rival Hostess Brands after the company went out of business last year. Twinkies, CupCakes and other snacks were purchased by a pair of investment firms, Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co., which owns Pabst beer.JetBlue Airways adds first classNEW YORK JetBlue, known for shuttling vacationers from Northeast cities to the warmth of Florida and the Caribbean, is making a play for corporate road warriors. Starting next year, the allcoach airline plans to offer 16 lie-flat seats on flights between New York and Los Angeles and San Francisco. Its the first time the egalitarian carrier will have a second class of service. The transcontinental routes are the most profitable and highly contested domestic markets for airlines. Business class tickets frequently sell for $4,000 roundtrip. American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines are all in the process of putting lie-flat beds in their premium cabins on those routes. Virgin America, which also flies from coast to coast, has a traditional first class cabin with larger seats.Britt proposes CBS be sold a la carteLOS ANGELES Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt has offered to end a fourday blackout of CBS stations, saying the cable operator would allow CBS to sell its stations signal a la carte to consumers instead of being packaged with other channels. In a letter released to the media, Britt said rather than debating the point, the method would allow customers to decide for themselves how much value they ascribe to CBS programming. CBS signals have been blacked out to some 3 million Time Warner Cable subscribers in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas in a dispute over how much the cable operator has to pay for CBS programming.US Airways, AMR merger approvedAMSTERDAM European authorities have cleared US Airways Group Inc.s proposed merger with American Airlines parent company, AMR Corp. on the condition they give up one slot at Londons Heathrow airport and take steps to foster competition on the LondonPhiladelphia route.

In a federal court filing Monday, BP renewed its request for a judge to temporarily suspend settlement payments while former FBI Director Louis Freeh leads an independent investigation of the court-supervised settlement program. BP said at least two lawyers who have ruled on appeals of disputed settlement awards were partners at law firms that have represented claimants. BP also said it recently learned of allegations that someone employed by the settlement program in Mobile, Ala., helped people submit fraudulent claims in exchange for a portion of the awards.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST6, 2013 A9 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,450 1,500 1,550 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 FMAMJJ 1,640 1,680 1,720 S&P 500Close: 1,707.14 Change: -2.53 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 13,500 14,000 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 FMAMJJ 15,400 15,540 15,680 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,612.13 Change: -46.23 (-0.3%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1257 Declined1813 New Highs206 New Lows112 Vol. (in mil.)2,481 Pvs. Volume3,075 1,445 1,616 1424 1061 233 9 NYSE NASD DOW15655.2115584.8315612.13-46.23-0.30%+19.14% DOW Trans.6646.076581.966600.75-50.94-0.77%+24.38% DOW Util.506.99504.49504.52-3.95-0.78%+11.35% NYSE Comp.9679.929646.129671.60-18.47-0.19%+14.54% NASDAQ3694.193681.343692.95+3.36+0.09%+22.30% S&P5001709.241703.551707.14-2.53-0.15%+19.70% S&P4001254.401249.291253.38-0.38-0.03%+22.83% Wilshire 500018157.5718098.1718141.10-13.58-0.07%+20.98% Russell 20001063.521057.721063.01+3.15+0.30%+25.16% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates Stocks slip during a quiet day on Wall Street Associated PressNEW YORK A quiet day of trading left stock indexes mixed Monday. There was little in the way of news to shake the market out of a summertime stupor, other than a report from the Institute for Supply Management that the U.S. service sector expanded in July, helped by a rise in new orders. It was the latest piece of data that economists and investors puzzled through as they try to judge how well the U.S. economy is doing. Last Thursday, the ISM reported that manufacturing increased last month. The next day, the government reported that companies werent hiring as many workers as economists had predicted. The report out Monday wasnt enough to drive the market above its already high levels. I think its flat for a reason, said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S. Banks wealth management group. With broad indexes near alltime highs, were due for a pause. The Standard & Poors 500 index breached 1,700 points for the first time last week. An improving U.S. economy and rising corporate profits have helped push the index up 19.7 percent this year. The S&P 500 index slipped 2.53 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 1,707.14 on Monday. Utilities led eight of the 10 industry groups in the index lower. Technology and consumerstaples companies eked out gains. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 46.23 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,612.13. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite index rose 3.36 points, or 0.09 percent, to 3,692.95. Apple, the biggest company in the Nasdaq, rose after news that President Barack Obamas administration prevented a ban on imports of some iPhones and iPads. Apple gained $6.91, or 1 percent, to $469.45. In June, the U.S. International Trade Commission ruled that the Apple devices violated a patent held by Samsung and issued the ban. The Obama administration had 60 days to decide whether to let it take effect.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 2013 Learn from movies lessonsIn light of the recent article on our schools, I felt compelled to write this. As a volunteer in the elementary schools I feel the real problem is the lack of discipline the teachers are allowed to use. I am not talking about beating a child. But the kids definitely have the upper hand and they know it. It is almost impossible to teach with this lack of order. One of the other issues I see is moving the kids around constantly. They never learn to stay in one place long enough to really concentrate on what they are supposed to be learning. Both of these problems could be fixed fairly easily if we would get back to basics. Rule No. 1, the adult is in charge. Rule No. 2, let the teachers have some leeway in their teaching methods. Let them do what works best for their students. Let them make learning fun! The way things are now, the teachers spend more time babysitting and dealing with unruly kids than actual teaching. It is not their fault. They are not even allowed to sit a child in the corner facing the wall. The kids know they can do whatever they want. It really hurts the kids that do want to learn. The distractions are enormous. Why is it so difficult to see how easy it would be to correct these things? Maybe everyone should watch the movie Lean On Me starring Morgan Freeman. It is based on a true story and it worked. I would highly recommend that our school board learn from this movie.Jan Atwood Crystal River Just over five years ago, I was on a bus headed home from a missions trip to Belize. On that bus I was speaking with a man about my favorite subject movies. And at some point in this conversation the man said to me, Well you really know your stuff, have you ever though about making awebsiteor ablogand writing about film on it? I never had thought of it, but it seemed like a fun idea. So when I arrived home the first thing I did was go to the computer and look up how to make awebsite. Within 20 minutes I had designed ablogusingGoogleand was looking for a name for it. My mind first thought of my oldest middle/high school nickname,Cashmoney, and so I named the blog Cashmoney Movies (it seemed to have a nice ring). I then went on to write my first movie critique on a movie that I had just seen. The film was The Dark Knight, one of my favorite films of all time. The whole review was a single paragraph and, looking back, pretty embarrassing. But I eventually picked up on more things to think on in these reviews: character development, pacing, predictability. And not long after that, my dad came home and told me he was talking to Mr. Gerry Mulligan about my site and he wanted me to send a review to the Chroniclefor possible publication. I was thrilled of course, and I sent in what I believed was my best review up to that point. Then a few more months down the road, on March 20, 2009, I published my first review with theChronicle. That was about four and a half years ago, and since then I have written numerous reviews for the paper on some of the greatest cinematic achievements of the past couple of decades: Avatar, Harry Potter, The Artist, LesMiserables, and many more. But now, as I am preparing to leave for college a few weeks from now, and I am very sad that my time with the Chroniclehas come to an end. My last review on The Wolverine was published Friday, Aug. 2. It was a good film to end with in my critical opinion, being that he is my favorite superhero (and the film was great). The opportunity to write for this paper has not only allowed me to share my passions with others on a weekly basis, but it has given me an incredible experience that will help me immensely throughout the rest of my life. I would like to thank Mr. Mulligan for giving me the chance to write for the Citrus County Chronicle. Without his generosity and encouragement, I would have never been able express my love for journalism and cinema like I have been doing. I would like to thank Cheri Harris (who is now the Gadsden County Times editor) for guiding me in the beginning of my time with the Chronicle, and giving me friendly advice and tips for my writing. And finally, I wish to thank the readers of the Chronicle, who over the years have offered numerous accounts of encouragement, compliments, and even debate (which is the fun part). But before I sign off, I want to give a final word on what I believe to be the greatest thing the world of the silver screen has given us. I have always tried to stress in my reviews that the key aspect of film that will make it or break it, is the story. No matter how much action, or suspense, or laughs there are in a film, it will never amount to anything if there is not a good story. A good story has the power to reach the farthest corners of our imaginations, as we smile in awe at the story of a girl with ruby slippers, trying to find her way back to Kansas. A good story has the power to tug on our heartstrings and make us cringe and sigh at the tragic story of a man who wants nothing more than to escape from being pulled in to the family business, but through unfortunate events is forced to be a ruthless Godfather. A good story has the power to make us cheer and rejoice at the triumph of good, as two little hobbits, against all odds, finish the task they set out to accomplish. A good story stands the test of time, and when you look inside the story, when you dig just a little bit deeper, you find something even greater. This is not something you can find without looking, its not something that just presents itself on screen, and when and if you find it, then you will see the true greatness of a film ... its heart. Its message. Its truth. The greatest of films act as parables of our time. They are stories with messages that teach us, inspire us, and challenge us. There have been countless super hero films over the past 13 years, but when you break them down they are all about the same thing: they are about one person who has been called to stand up and pursue goodness, to defy the darkness around them. Isnt that what we all want? To pursue goodness, to make a difference, to be a light in a dark world? No wonder these films are so popular. It is the message of a film that makes it stand out. These films teach us things. They show us that there is a difference between what is right and what is easy, that with great power comes great responsibility, and that there is still some good in this world that is worth fighting for. Lessons like these can shape an individual. So I leave you with a challenge: the next time you walk into a movie theater and watch a great story, try to dig a little deeper. Find something that is really worth talking about, worth remembering, worth believing in. Because when you find the heart of a film and the truth it tells, then you will be able to appreciate its greatness even more. Since film and television have staged everything imaginable before it happens, a true event, taking place in the real world, brings to mind the landscape of films.Elizabeth Hardwick, 1916-2007 Finding the heart of cinema CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Kenney seeks win-win compromise In June, county commissioners voted 3-2 to allow limerock mining on a 22acre parcel of a 149-acre site that surrounds the historic 19th century Red Level Cemetery north of Crystal River thats the resting place for several Citrus County pioneers. Torn between the emotional pleas of family members of those interred and the legal arguments of Nature Coast Development LLC, the commission majority followed the law given that the property was previously zoned for extractive use and met the legal requirements of the countys recently updated Land Development Code. Although a vote not to follow the law could have led to legal action against the county, Commissioners J.J. Kenney and Scott Adams dissented due to two shared concerns. Mining on the 22-acre property could permanently and irrevocably alter the historic and tranquil character of the cemetery. And, with the extractive value of the 149acre site estimated at $140 million to $150 million, approval could lead to the mining of the entire 149-acre site. Despite the die being cast, Commissioner Kenney optimistically sees a ray of hope in the statements of property owner Steve Lamb and Gary Grubbs, one of the owners of Nature Coast Development. In a statement to theChroniclein 2011, Lamb expressed his interest in selling the property to the state. During the June 17 county commission meeting, Grubbs noted that Nature Coast Development would be amenable to dropping the purchase price for interested parties if compensated for its investment plus a fair markup. Given the statements by Lamb and Grubbs, Commissioner Kenney, in the spirit of nothing ventured, nothing gained, is seeking the help of State Sen. Charles Dean and State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith in encouraging the state to purchase the 149-acre site for conservation land. If Commissioner Kenneys efforts at compromise prove successful, it could be a workable solution for all concerned by preserving the cemeterys character while assuring the property rights of owner Steve Lamb and the investment costs of Nature Coast Development. We also wonder why Commissioner Adams wouldnt work toward this collaborative approach. Instead of joining with Commissioner Kenney in the hope of resolving the issue for the mutual benefit of all concerned, Commissioner Adams declared solution is to work against a sale to the state in order to call the hand of Nature Coast Development. With Commissioners Kenney and Adams both expressing strong support for preserving the historic Red Level Cemetery, it is hoped Commissioner Adams would stand with Commissioner Kenney as he seeks what could be a workable solution.

Oh please, give us all a break.Not so funnyIm calling in regards to the Doonesbury comic in the funnies in the paper. I agree with some of the callers that have been calling in about it.

SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 Laughing all the wayToday, Hospital legal bill: $8.4M. Right underneath, a picture of Bill Grant and Clark Stillwell. No wonder theyre smiling. Can you imagine how much Citrus County could do with all that money? Thats just ridiculous. Im sure theyre laughing all the way to the bank.Priorities mixed upIf my math is correct, if you take the total population of Citrus County, 140,000, divide it by the $8.4 million in legal fees spent by the hospital boards, it comes out to $60 for every citizen in Citrus County. And were complaining about a $54-a-year fire tax on each household? I think we may have our priorities wrong. CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Liam CashGUEST COLUMN Hot Corner: HOSPITAL
Taxpayers not endless moneyCommissioners: I fail to understand where you folks think a lot of U.S. taxpayers obtain funds to live on. I have been retired for 25 years, loved every minute of it, but have not had the benefit of raises in income to continue covering the ever-increasing cost of groceries, taxes, and the many other costly goods and services that are life-necessary. During my working productive income years I saved and invested portions of my income in the hopes that it would last me during my senior years. I was raised to be frugal and save when you have income for those times when situations arise, sickness, flood, hurricane, etc. unexpectedly. I did not compete with the Joneses for that new car, big house or holiday in Paris. I saved most of what I was able to accumulate during low-income times when gasoline was under $.50 a gallon, bread was under $1 a loaf and you didnt need to take out a loan to purchase your medications. Im quite sure that at least some of you were not born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but actions with taxpayers funds your collective history has been, there is an unending source of money. You know that taxpayers dont like it when you raise taxes so you get around the tax name by calling increases more pleasant names, like service fees, MSBU, etc. Apparently the saying, a rose by any other name is still a rose, sort of went over your heads. In this budget crunching time you still want to pursue grandiose ideas like the Port, the medical concourse through the center of the county, four lanes on roads, etc. A prudent person would evaluate their income and then decide on those things that are life necessary and postpone those items that would be nice but we can live without until better economic times are with us. A case in point Ive lived in Floral City for years and most of that time with a volunteer fire department. I know it would be nice to have fire response time down to say five minutes in lieu of the old times, when we got there as quick as we could. Nice, but not lifenecessary. I totally disagree with establishing a first-year amount and at the same time setting a maximum amount that could be exercised without public input. Boy, you folks want your cake and eat it, too. If this letter gets read by each of you, I will consider my time spent writing successful.Frank Heath Floral CityVolunteer for Tax-Aide groupThe first time you, as a certified Tax-Aide volunteer, sit down with someone who may be struggling on a limited income and you are able to tell the person he or she will be getting a tax refund, you will know exactly what the term warm your heart really means. Such people are often terrified they may have to fork over what few dollars they have for food or medicine to the IRS. This scene repeats itself over and over again to our volunteer Tax-Aide counselors each and every season. There are only about 25 percent of American taxpayers who can or will prepare their federal/state tax returns. Many come to AARP to have them prepared by IRS-certified volunteers at no cost. Many of these Tax-Aide volunteers responded to an offer such as this at one time. In order to become certified by the IRS, the AARP Tax-Aide program provides training, at no cost to volunteers. You do not need to be an accountant or have any financial background. However, there is a commitment you will need to make to exercise your mind and learn a new skill. AARP provides the tools and resources. And you will be helping so many people make their lives a bit easier. You will have the selfconfidence and knowledge to accomplish what only a small percentage of the American population is capable of. That is a great feeling! It is now decision time: Will you join the ranks, take a leap and learn how to lend a hand during tax season? There will be a combination of formal classroom training, as well as self-study. Last year, AARP Tax-Aide helped nearly 7,000 Citrus County citizens with a resultant total federal return of $3.86 million, without a single penny out of citizens pockets for the service.

He looked like Morris in the 9 Lives ads and had his personality. Two weeks ago, we went to the Citrus County Animal Shelter and viewed the adult cats up for adoption. We watched them interact and saw one who seemed very gentle. We held her and she began purring. She won our hearts. Her name is Sabrina, 2 to 5 years old, and snow white. She had been owned by an 89-year-old woman who passed away. Sabrina made friends with our 9-year-old gray striped Baby the first day.

Many remain closed for rest of the week Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. diplomatic posts in 19 cities in the Mideast and Africa will remain closed for the rest of the week amid intercepted chatter about terror threats, which lawmakers briefed on the information likened to intelligence picked up before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. One lawmaker said the chatter was specific as to certain dates and the scope of the operation; others said it suggested that a major terrorist attack, akin to 9/11, was being planned by the al-Qaida affiliate in Yemen. Diplomatic facilities will remain closed in Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, among other countries, through Saturday, Aug. 10. The State Department announcement Sunday added closures of four African sites, in Madagascar, Burundi, Rwanda and Mauritius. The U.S. reopened some posts on Monday, including those in Kabul, Afghanistan and Baghdad. Last week the State Department announced a global travel alert, warning that al-Qaida or its allies might target either U.S. government or private American interests. It said Americans should take extra precautions overseas and cited potential dangers involved with public transportation systems and other prime sites for tourists. Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the decision to keep certain embassies and consulates shuttered throughout the week was done out of an abundance of caution and to protect our employees, including local employees, and visitors to our facilities. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Monday the briefings he has received certainly emphasize these threats are specific and credible, equal if not more serious to the kind of chatter, as the intelligence called it, that was heard prior to 9/11. But he added: The average American should continue to be alert and vigilant and cautious but certainly not unduly alarmed or panicky. He spoke on MSNBC. The intercepted intelligence foreshadowing an attack on U.S. or Western interests is evidence of one of the gravest threats to the United States in years, said several lawmakers Sunday. Fort Hood victims to face gunman at trial Associated PressLILLINGTON, N.C. Alonzo Lunsford has trouble getting out of chairs and warns his family to wake him gently. Kathy Platoni cant shake the image of the man who died in a pool of blood at her knees. Shawn Manning still has two bullets in his body and gets easily unnerved by crowds. Survivors of the 2009 shooting rampage that claimed the lives of 13 people at the Fort Hood Army base in Texas fight these demons daily. Now after years of delay, they will come face to face with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who goes on trial in the attack starting Tuesday. After dismissing his attorneys, Hasan got permission to represent himself, putting him in the unusual position of asking questions of the very people he admits targeting. Hasan, a Muslim who argues he was protecting the Taliban from American aggression, was shot by a civilian police officer and is now in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the abdomen down. Manning dreads the courtroom confrontation. I have to keep my composure and not go after the guy, said Manning, a mental health specialist who was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan with Hasan. Im not afraid of him, obviously. Hes a paralyzed guy in a wheelchair, but its sickening that hes still living and breathing. Lunsford a now-retired staff sergeant who was shot seven times relishes the thought of staring at Hasan and telling him that he did not win. Like Manning, he carries two bullets with him one in a small wooden box, the other in his back. That man strikes no fear in my heart. He strikes no fear in my family. What he did to me was bad. But the biggest mistake that he made was I survived. So he will see me again, he said as he sat on his porch in Lillington, rubbing the shiny slug between his fingers. I will never show any fear in the face of my enemy, he added. Never. Platoni just hopes she can keep her composure enough to support the family of Capt. John Gaffaney, the friend and soldier who died next to her. The families of people who were killed struggle with a roller coaster of emotions, too. Eduardo Caraveo, whose father, Libardo Eduardo Caraveo, died, took a few weeks of leave from his job as a prison supervisor to deal with his emotions ahead of the trial. Youre going to hear stuff ... that you dont know how youre going to take, he said. Joleen Cahill, whose husband, Mike Cahill, was shot six times after he lifted a chair to try to stop Hasan, has struggled with the loneliness of an empty house. Now she wants to ensure that her anger doesnt take over during the trial. I want to be the one in control here, not him, she said. In the large hall where troops were preparing for upcoming deployments, everyone was unarmed. Everyone except Hasan. Manning, who had gotten married just a few weeks before the shooting, was almost done for the day. Platoni had left the hall and was in a nearby domeshaped building. Left behind were her friends including Caraveo sitting in a row of chairs. Then in an instant, lives were changed forever. I hear someone yell allahu akbar, recalled Manning, who had done two previous deployments in Iraq. Usually something bad is going to follow after that, so I look up at him and he started shooting. He probably fired five or six shots before he shot me in the chest. For a moment, Manning thought it was a military drill using paint balls. But then he saw the blood pouring from his chest. People were screaming. Manning crawled to a nook, trying to take cover. Too many people were there, and Hasan kept shooting him. So he played dead. Soldiers running into the nearby dome shouted there was an attack. Platoni, thinking of her friends, ran over, trying to get through the doors. But other soldiers were already bringing out the wounded. There was her friend Gaffaney, bleeding to death. The memories are there all the time when Im not otherwise actively engaged in patients or doing gardening, Platoni said. Its something that haunts me constantly. A few hope that Hasan receives the death penalty. The same way he tried to kill us. Or, if he wants to be put to death, and he wants to follow Islamic law, then he can be put to death according to Islamic law, which is by stoning, Lunsford said. I would love to be the first one, to throw the first pitch. That would be a joy. But were better than that as a people. We dont do that. Realistically, Manning said, Hasan may never be put to death. But that may not be a total disappointment. Living in a cell, paralyzed for the rest of his life, he said, is some sort of justice as well.

Police said Monday that Giovanni Pacheco, 21, was taken into custody hours after the shooting and booked into Monterey County Jail. The shooting occurred about 1:30 a.m. after a fight spilled outside of Tacos Choice restaurant. Arriving officers found a 22-year-old man dead from gunshot wounds.

US shutters diplomatic posts Argentine govt agent held in burglary Associated PressBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentine investigators have arrested a government intelligence agent in a burglary of the home of a leading opposition candidate, whose bloc could sway the balance of power in congress. Security camera videos released Monday show Tigre Mayor Sergio Massas home was robbed on July 20, allegedly by Coast Guard officer Alcides Diaz Gorgonio, who was detained hours after the crime. While Massa stopped short of blaming the government for the burglary, he also said he would not be intimidated. The agents boss, meanwhile, suggested that Massa was twisting a common crime into a political scandal. Diaz works in the security ministrys intelligence unit under Deputy Security Minister Sergio Berni, who answers to President Cristina Fernandez. Massa used to be Fernandezs Cabinet chief but split from the ruling Front for Victory party and is leading an opposition slate in this years midterm elections. Massa said the burglary case is in the hands of a local prosecutor.

And a new football season on the horizon means hope is renewed for the next three months of Friday nights. Area schools began non-contact practices Monday and are permitted to strap on the pads starting Saturday, while preseason exhibitions are just more than two weeks away. A litany of injuries, transfers and ineligibility statuses left the county teams shorthanded in the spring, which only helped to build anticipation for the fall campaign. Rayburn Greenes Citrus Hurricanes are gaining early attention with their slate of returning talent and collection of notable incoming transfers led by former Crystal River receiver Sam Franklin. Its Greenes fourth year at the school, which means he will enjoy his first class of seniors that played all four of their years under the current regime. Hell be counting on that core group to help prepare the squad for a run that includes road contests at Dunnellon, Vanguard and Gainesville. The Canes face Nature Coast Technical in the preseason. This team has great leadership, probably the best Ive ever coached, Greene said of his team on Monday. These kids know what it is around here its hard work. We dont try to sell the idea that practice is fun. Winnings fun. Our kids know that. Judging from our spring game, weve got a lot of work to do, added Greene, noting his teams struggles against South Sumter three months ago. The biggest offseason news at Lecanto was the schools decision to go independent in football after Gainesville won its petition to join 6A-5 with Forest, Citrus, Lake Weir and Vanguard. The Panthers still play their county rivals and also get a game at Dunnellon. They play host to Weeki Wachee for their fall classic on August 23. Third-year head coach McKinley Rolle is dealing with some losses from transfers and ineligibilities, but appreciates the strides made over the summer by many of his kids. This is the best summer weve had since Ive been here, Rolle said. The solid core of leaders Jonah Nightengale, Armante Young, Travis McGee stepped up, and I was proud of them for that. Jeremiah Lucas and a number of other kids stepped up in their performances. It gets you excited as a coach to see a kid come in as a freshman and improve every year with that kind of commitment. There will be a lot of new faces at Crystal River this year, most notably at the head position, where firstyear coach Nathan Varnadore is succeeding Greg Fowler. Its definitely interesting being in the head coachs seat for my first go, Varnadore said, but I enjoy it. The kids are great here. We had good turnouts over the summer, about 50 to 60 kids per day at workouts, which is really good compared to the previous numbers. The graduation of Dallas Baldner, Joe See FOOTBALL/ Page B3 D-Day in MLB Associated PressNEW YORK Defiant till the end, Alex Rodriguez is intent on evading baseballs most sweeping punishment since the Black Sox scandal. Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 and All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Monday when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. The harshest penalty was reserved for Rodriguez, the New York Yankees slugger, a three-time Most Valuable Player and baseballs highest-paid star. He said he will appeal his suspension, which covers 211 games, by Thursdays deadline. And since arbitrator Fredric Horowitz isnt expected to rule until November or December at the earliest, Rodriguez was free to make his season debut Monday night and play the rest of this year. Sidelined since hip surgery in January, Rodriguez rejoined the Yankees five hours after the suspension in a series opener at the Chicago White Sox, scheduled to play third base and bat fourth. The last seven months has been a nightmare, has been probably the worst time of my life for sure, Rodriguez said. The other 12 players agreed to their 50-game penalties before they were announced, giving them a chance to return for the playoffs. Ryan Brauns 65-game suspension last month and previous penalties bring to 18 the total number of players sanctioned for their connection with Biogenesis. At the center of it all was Rodriguez, once the greatest player of his time, reduced Monday night to saying that he was humbled, at 38, just to have the opportunity to put on this uniform again and adding if he didnt fight for his career, no one else would. A-Rods drug penalty was for his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performanceenhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years, MLB said. His punishment under the labor contract was for attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioners investigation. In Chicago, Rodriguez wouldnt deny using PEDs, saying when the time is right, there will be an opportunity to do all of that. I dont think that time is right now. He added: Its been the toughest fight of my life. By any means, am I out of the woods? This is probably just phase two just starting. Its not going to get easier. Its probably going to get harder. Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has repeatedly denied using them since. I am disappointed with the penalty and intend to appeal and fight this through the process. I am eager to get back on the field and be with my teammates in Chicago tonight, Rodriguez said in a statement. Yankees manager Joe Girardi, minutes after losing captain Derek Jeter for the third time this year, was ready to welcome A-Rod back. Im not here to judge people. Its not my job, Girardi said. Hes a player as long as hes in our clubhouse. Girardi called the suspensions another black eye for us, but were trying to clean this game up. The suspensions are thought to be the most at once for off-field conduct since 1921, when Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned eight Chicago White Sox players for life for throwing the 1919 World Series against Cincinnati: Shoeless Joe Jackson, Eddie Cicotte, Happy Felsh, Chick Gandil, Fred McMullen, Charles Swede Risberg, Buck Weaver and Claude Lefty Williams. They had been suspended by the team the previous year and were penalized by baseball even though they had been acquitted of criminal charges. As for the modern-day All-Stars, Cruz, an outfielder, leads Texas in RBIs and Peralta has been a top hitter and shortstop for Detroit, a pair of teams in the midst of pennant races. They will be eligible to return for the postseason. Others agreeing to 50-game bans included Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and outfielder Fernando Martinez; Philadelphia pitcher Antonio Bastardo; Seattle catcher Jesus Montero; New York Mets infielder Jordany Valdespin and outfielder Cesar Puello; Houston pitcher Sergio Escalona; and free agent pitchers Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto. While the players association has fought many drug penalties in the past three decades, attitudes of its membership have shifted sharply in recent years and union staff encouraged settlements in the Biogenesis probe. The accepted suspensions announced today are consistent with the punishments set forth in the Joint Drug Agreement, and were arrived at only after hours of intense negotiations between the bargaining parties, the players and their representatives, union head Michael Weiner said. For the player appealing, Alex Rodriguez, we agree with his decision to fight his suspension. We believe that the Commissioner has not acted appropriately ... The union, consistent with its history, will defend his rights vigorously. Fighting a brain tumor diagnosed a year ago, Weiner spoke in a raspy voice during a conference call and said the unions executive board will consider stiffer drug penalties when players meet in December. But the union will fight Rodriguezs discipline. Weve never had a 200-plus (game) penalty for a player who may have used drugs, he said. And among other things, I just think thats way out of line. Rodriguez is making $28 million this year, and his salary drops to $25 million next year and $21 million in 2015. If the 211-game penalty is upheld, his lost pay could range from $30.6 million to $32.7 million, depending on when exactly the suspension is served. Cruz attributed his action to a Associated PressNew York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players Monday in the most sweeping punishment since the Black Sox scandal nearly a century ago. Defiant A-Rod gets 211-game ban, will appeal; 12 others suspended in Biogenesis investigationThose players who have violated the program have created scrutiny for the vast majority of our players, who play the game the right way.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Justin Upton led off the eighth inning with a tiebreaking homer, and the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves extended their winning streak to a season-high 11 games by beating the fading Washington Nationals 3-2 Monday night. Freddie Freeman drove in Atlantas first two runs with a pair of singles in the third and fifth. Reliever David Carpenter (3-0) earned the win by retiring all five batters he faced. Uptons 20th homer came on a 3-2 pitch from Tyler Clippard (6-2), who replaced Stephen Strasburg to begin the eighth. The Nationals again failed to provide much run support for Strasburg, who struck out nine in seven innings, allowing two runs and five hits. The last five times hes allowed two earned runs or fewer, Washington lost.American League White Sox 8, Yankees 1CHICAGO Alex Rodriguez blooped a single in his first at-bat of the season hours after being hit with a long suspension, but that was it for the embattled slugger as the Chicago White Sox snapped a 10-game losing streak with an 8-1 win over the struggling New York Yankees. Rodriguez was suspended through 2014 by Major League Baseball in the Biogenesis case, a punishment he is appealing. That clearly was the biggest story on a day when New Yorks Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list because of a strained right calf and Andy Pettitte (7-9) got knocked out early. Alex Rios drove in four runs, Alexei Ramirez added four hits and Jose Quintana (6-3) pitched into the seventh for the White Sox.Astros 2, Red Sox 0HOUSTON Brett Oberholtzer threw seven shutout innings, and L.J. Hoes scored twice to lead the Houston Astros to a 2-0 win over the Boston Red Sox. Oberholtzer (2-0) allowed four hits while walking two and striking out two. In his first two career starts, Oberholtzer has thrown 14 scoreless innings, allowing seven hits. Hoes and Jonathan Villar each had two hits for the Astros, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Houston took a 1-0 lead in the fifth on a run-scoring single by Robbie Grossman, scoring Hoes who led off with a single and stole second.Tigers 4, Indians 2CLEVELAND Alex Avilas threerun homer in the ninth inning off closer Chris Perez rallied the Detroit Tigers to their ninth straight win, 4-2 over the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers were three outs away from having their lead in the AL Central cut to two games before their comeback against Perez (4-2), who had converted 11 consecutive save opportunities. After Victor Martinezs RBI single made it 2-1, Perez walked Andy Dirks before Avila drove a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left-center for his ninth homer, stunning a Cleveland crowd ready to celebrate the teams biggest win this season. Al Alburquerque (2-2) got one in the eighth and Joaquin Benoit worked the ninth for his 13th save.Royals 13, Twins 0KANSAS CITY, Mo. Jeremy Guthrie pitched a four-hitter and Eric Hosmer drove in a career-high five runs to help the Kansas City Royals rout the Minnesota Twins 13-0. The Royals, who have won 12 of their past 13 games, scored a seasonhigh 13 runs. Guthrie (12-7) won his fourth straight start to log his 12th victory, which is a career high. It was his second career shutout and he lowered his earned run average to 3.94. The right-hander retired the final 13 batters, did not allow a Twins runner to reach third base and only two touched second base. He struck out seven and walked one. Kevin Correia (7-8) was pulled after two innings and 16 batters faced, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks.National League Dodgers 3, Cardinals 2ST. LOUIS Zack Greinke pitched into the seventh inning and raised his batting average to .405 with an RBI single, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers win their 15th straight on the road with a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Nick Punto was productive subbing for injured shortstop Hanley Ramirez and the Dodgers got an RBI apiece from Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis while matching the Cincinnati Reds 15-game run in 1957. Theyre two wins shy of the NL record set by the 1916 New York Giants. Greinke (9-3) allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings for his 100th career victory, allowing two hits in the third, fourth and fifth but no runs. Paco Rodriguez earned his second career save with a perfect ninth. Adam Wainwright (13-7) gave up three runs in seven innings.

I made an error in judgment that I deeply regret, and I accept full responsibility for that error, he said in a statement. I should have handled the situation differently, and my illness was no excuse. Peralta can rejoin Detroit for a season-ending three-game series at Miami not far from the former office of Biogenesis. In a statement released by the Tigers, Peralta said in spring of 2012, I made a terrible mistake that I deeply regret. Peralta apologized to his teammates and the great fans in Detroit, saying he knows he let many good people down. MLBs investigation began last year after San Francisco outfielder and All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera tested positive for elevated testosterone, as did Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. The probe escalated in January when the Miami New Times published documents obtained from former Biogenesis associate Porter Fisher that linked several players to Biogenesis. MLB said Melky Cabrera, Colon and Grandal will not receive additional discipline and it found no violations for Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez and Baltimore infielder Danny Valencia, both linked to Biogenesis in media reports. In June, baseball struck a deal for Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch to cooperate. After holding investigatory interviews with the players, MLB presented evidence to the players union along with its intended penalties, starting the final round of negotiations. Those players who have violated the program have created scrutiny for the vast majority of our players, who play the game the right way, baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said. We continue to attack this issue on every front from science and research, to education and awareness, to fact-finding and investigative skills. SUSPENSIONSContinued from Page B1
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LaFleur, A.J. Bostic, Manuel Henriquez and Bilial Jenkins, as well as Franklins transfer to Citrus, leave significant voids to be filled on both sides of the ball. Seniors Destin Dawsy and Ty Reynolds are the most accomplished returning Pirates. Theyre two different ends of the spectrum, but theyre both leaders, Varnadore said of the standout pair. The Pirates get a big practice test in preseason at Ocalas Trinity Catholic on Aug. 23. District games at South Sumter, Dunnellon, North Marion and Eastside, as well as a home finale against Citrus, guarantee a continued heavy lift for Crystal River. Our kids need that exposure to see where were at, Varnadore said of the meeting with Trinity. Every non-district game you play is preparation for the district. We may surprise in good ways and bad ways. You just take what you have and go out and play. Dave Iwaniec, second-year head coach of Seven Rivers Christian, has more to look forward to than what first appeared back in the spring. At that juncture, the graduation of do-itall standout John Iwaniec, as well as a player shortage, loomed over the coming season. But Coach Iwaniec expects a roster of around 16 true varsity players no seniors and likes the potential infusion of talent his Warriors are getting in a handful of transfers. The passing game figures to get a boost from quarterback Sterling Gardner, who is among a contingent that Iwaniec described as having had a great summer workout. Hes made leaps and bounds in being able to throw the football, Iwaniec said of Gardner. We are going to be able to throw the football, and weve never had as much depth at a skill position as we do at running back right now. The competition is great. You see it in the weight room with some kids from bigger schools bringing with them a work ethic thats just been fantastic. The Warriors are without a preseason exhibition and take on secondyear program Legacy Charter, a fellow SSAC North Division opponent, in their opener. Iwaniec also announced Seven Rivers is breaking ground on a sports complex located across the street from the campus on Oct. 1, meaning this is the last season that Warrior home football games will be hosted at Ernie Wever Youth Park in Brooksville.

The sixth-year pro signed a one-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last month and is competing for a job to play behind Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin. Hillis rushed for nearly 1,200 yards and scored 13 touchdowns for Cleveland in 2010, however he hasnt been nearly as productive over the past two seasons with the Browns and Kansas City Chiefs. Martin ran for more than 1,400 yards as a rookie in 2012, but the Bucs dont have an established backup. They are giving Hillis, another veteran Brian Leonard and rookie Mike James a chance to earn the role. Im here, trying to do the best that I can, Hillis said. Ive been humbled over the past couple of years, and Im just happy to be in a place they want me to be and a place where I can try to produce again. Hillis entered the NFL as a seventhround draft pick in 2008 and started eight games in two seasons with the Denver Broncos. He moved to Cleveland three years old ago and flourished in a featured role with the Browns, rushing for 1,177 yards and catching 61 passes for another 477 yards. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound running back became a fan favorite during his breakout season and was selected to appear on the cover of the next years Madden video game. His career has been in decline ever since. Injuries have been a factor. And at least one former teammate, Cleveland offensive tackle Joe Thomas, was quoted last season as saying Hillis performance with the Browns slipped after the running back eager to capitalize on his success from the previous year put his desire for a new contract before the team. Hillis said his focus is on the future, trying to earn a job with the Bucs not what happened in Cleveland in 2011 or last year in Kansas City, where the 27year-old played behind three-time 1,000-yard rusher Jamaal Charles and averaged a career-low 3.6 yards per carry while running for 309 yards and one TD. Some things in life theres no rhyme or reason. I just try to take one step at a time and try to re-evaluate the situation, Hillis said. I cant go back to my past and change things. I can only move forward. Thats what Im going to do. Hillis is listed behind Martin, Leonard and James,, a sixth-round draft pick, on the depth chart for Thursdays preseason opener against Baltimore. Coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik were drawn to the running backs size, as well as the success he enjoyed with Cleveland. Hillis started 23 games over two seasons with the Browns, rushing for 1,764 yards and scoring 16 touchdowns 14 of them on the ground. I liked the way he played, and so did Mark. We felt like he was a good fit for us right now with our running back and fullback situation. Hes a guy who brings some versatility to the position. He can be the ball carrier, I think he can block. Hes a bigger back, Schiano said. If he makes the team, Hillis could wind up playing a role similar to one filled a year ago by another former 1,000-yard rusher, LeGarrette Blount, who carried 41 times for 151 yards as Martins backup. Blount was traded to New England this spring, leaving the Bucs in the market for a big back such as Hillis, and even the 225-pound Leonard, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent after spending the past four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. Hes done it in this league, and I think we needed to create quality depth, Schiano said. We have our guy in Doug, but we need to create quality depth and we need to create competition as well. Hillis, whos still learning the playbook, is excited about the opportunity. Im out here learning a little bit of everything tailback, fullback ... a little bit of everything, he said. Hopefully I will be able to establish myself and help this team win. Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers running back Peyton Hillis runs a drill during training camp July 25 in Tampa.
Buckeyes went undefeated in Meyers first Big Ten season Associated PressCHICAGO By every measure, Urban Meyers first season at Ohio State was a smashing success. The Buckeyes won all 12 games, and Braxton Miller developed into a superstar quarterback along the way. Thats all gone now, practically ancient history in football-mad Columbus. The pressure is on for a blockbuster sequel, even if Meyer himself is preoccupied with the opening scenes. Our job is to compete for championships in November. Thats all I want them to think about, Meyer said. A team is a complex animal that you got to be really careful how you approach things. Start talking about things that are way beyond even, I dont want to say expectations, but we dont talk about those things. We talk about we have to get to November to compete for a championship and thats complicated enough. It sure is. While Miller and Ohio State begin the year as the Big Ten favorite, there are plenty of potential challengers. Dynamic quarterback Devin Gardner thinks hes ready to lead Michigan back to the top of the conference. Taylor Martinez wants to put together another great year in his final season at Nebraska. Then theres Wisconsin, coming off a Rose Bowl trip and looking to make a smooth transition to new coach Gary Andersen, and Michigan State and more. I like our football team, Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. I usually dont say that. I said it after the spring. I will continue to say it because I like how theyve handled themselves on the field and off the field so far this summer. I like their work ethic, and I like how theyve represented Michigan in a lot of ways. Denard Robinson is gone after a stellar career, but Gardner is back to provide the same sort of sizzle in Michigans backfield. The 6-foot-4 junior began last season at wide receiver, and then played quarterback for the last five games. He threw for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns against five interceptions, and also had 101 yards and seven TDs on the ground. Gardner is a work in progress I have to start to checking the ball down. Always want the big play, he said but his teammates have noticed a change in the former Detroit prep star since he became the starter behind center. Hes grown right into it, senior safety Thomas Gordon said. Hes a lot more comfortable. You can see that. While Gardner is the toast of Ann Arbor, he has a ways to go to match the celebrity that Martinez enjoys in Nebraska. The senior star, who accounted for a schoolrecord 3,890 yards of offense and 33 touchdowns last season, spent more than an hour signing autographs during one recent trip to the mall. Martinez has started 39 consecutive games for the Cornhuskers and will leave the school with several offensive records. While he will go down as one of the best players ever at the powerhouse program, he doesnt seem too concerned with his legacy headed into his final year. Ive done a lot so far in my career, so Ive just got to take this season for what its worth and just enjoy it and just remember everything that happens, Martinez said.5 things to watch1. TOUGH UP FRONT: If you love the big guys up front, check out the offensive linemen of the Big Ten. Senior Jack Mewhort leads an experienced group for Ohio State, and Martinez raves about the unit at Nebraska. Michigan left tackle Taylor Lewan flirted with the NFL draft before deciding to return for one more season. He prepared for his final year by adopting a strict diet that he said helped increase his strength and quickness. Ive cheated a couple times, here and there, Lewan said. Im a sucker for ice cream. 2. DUAL THREATS: Miller, Gardner and Martinez will grab all the headlines, but they arent the only Big Ten quarterbacks who can score through the air or on the ground. Northwesterns Kain Kolter helped the Wildcats to a 10-3 record last season and their first bowl victory since 1949. Illinois Nathan Scheelhaase rushed for 303 yards and four touchdowns last year. 3. WHOS THE NEW GUY: There are two new head coaches this year, with Andersen taking over at Wisconsin and Darrell Hazell going from Kent State to Purdue. The Badgers routed Nebraska in the Big Ten title game on Dec. 1, but Bret Bielema still decided to leave for Arkansas before Wisconsins narrow loss to Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Enter Andersen, who left Utah State for quite the unusual transition with the Badgers. Theres going to be differences when you take over a program, Andersen said. Its important to put your own stamp on it. 4. SLEEPERS: Pat Fitzgerald has coached Northwestern to five consecutive bowl berths, culminating in the Wildcats 34-20 victory over Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl in January. Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State come to Evanston this year, where Northwestern doesnt enjoy much of a homefield advantage but could begin to build one with a couple victories. Indiana also could surprise people, with 19 starters back from last years 4-8 team. 5. GO DEEP: Penn State star Allen Robinson is the big name, but there are plenty of other solid receivers spread throughout the Big Ten. Kenny Bell (Nebraska), Jared Abbrederis (Wisconsin) and Jeremy Gallon (Michigan) each had over 800 yards receiving last season while averaging at least 16.9 yards per catch. Also keep a close eye on Cody Latimer (Indiana) and Corey Brown (Ohio State). Loaded Tigers led by QB Tajh Boyd Associated PressGREENSBORO, N.C. The Atlantic Coast Conference got bigger. Now its time to find out if it got better. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are finally in after nearly two years of Big East purgatory, bringing the ACC up to 14 teams and helping to solidify its status as a power conference. The league has plenty of things going for it. Its wedded to the Orange Bowl for at least 13 more years with an attractive lineup of other bowls behind it. The new grant-of-rights agreement makes it highly unlikely that anybody follows Maryland out the door. But theres still work to do as the ACC once again tries to make itself nationally relevant on the field and the leagues preseason favorite, Clemson, has the best chance to raise the profile of the conference. The Tigers have the leagues most likely Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Tajh Boyd and a schedule bookended by Southeastern Conference heavyweights Georgia and South Carolina. They made people take them seriously by beating LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl last December, and how they deal with the increased attention that came along with that victory could determine whether theyre in contention for their second ACC title in three years if not a bigger prize. I told them last year (that) we didnt handle success very good in 2011, coach Dabo Swinney said. Were going to have success again, and how we handle that is going to determine our season. And they did a much better job last year. We have to focus on Clemson and our formula for success, our preparation, he added. Thats what matters.5 THINGS TO WATCH1. PUT UP OR SHUT UP: The ACC has plenty of early season chances to raise its profile. In addition to that Clemson-Georgia game, Virginia Tech-Alabama and Miami-Florida are among the high-profile matchups that could either make people take notice of the basketball-first league or simply shrug their shoulders at another missed opportunity. It went just 4-11 in 2012 against the four other heavyweight leagues, and was winless in four finalweek matchups with the mighty Southeastern Conference. 2. CLEMSONS CHANCE: The Tigers shape up as the ACCs best shot at a serious national title contender, with Boyd, the leagues reigning player of the year throwing to 2011 breakout star Sammy Watkins. But the last time Clemson was picked to win the ACC (2008) the Tigers stumbled to a 3-4 start that led to a midseason coaching change. In the ACCs neverending fight against its public perception, the league can ill afford a faceplant from its preseason favorite. They host Florida State on Oct. 19 in a game that likely will decide the Atlantic Division race. 3. DARK HORSES: The leagues parity or is it mediocrity? usually means a team or two can come out of nowhere to challenge for a division title. Duke was in the mix in the Coastal Division last year, Virginia did it the year before, and its hard forget Wake Forests surprise run to the title in 2006. This year it could be North Carolina, which lost 10 players but has enough talent back led by QB Bryn Renner, TE Eric Ebron and DE Kareem Martin to make coach Larry Fedoras second season an interesting one. Or maybe theres a surprise coming at Maryland, where all those injuries in 2012 mean plenty of players got at least some game experience and WR Stefon Diggs could be one of the leagues top playmakers. And dont look past coach Paul Johnsons tripleoption at Georgia Tech, which returns virtually its entire offensive line. Former backup QB Vad Lee showed promise last season, rushing for nine TDs. 4. THE NEW GUYS: Unlike the ACCs 2003 expansion, nobodys expecting much of a football upgrade from Syracuse and Pitt. Those schools have combined for two 10-win seasons since 1992 and one outright Big East title in the past 15 years (Syracuse, 1998). Other new faces to keep an eye on: Boston College coach Steve Addazio will try to turn around a program coming off its first consecutive losing seasons since 1997-98, N.C. State coach Dave Doeren arrives after leading Northern Illinois to back-to-back Mid-American Conference titles and takes over for the fired Tom OBrien whos now on Virginias staff and Duke safety Jeremy Cash, an Ohio State transfer who will look to improve a defense that allowed at least 41 points to six of its final seven opponents. 5. COACHING RANKS: None of the ACCs coaches appear to be in serious danger of being fired at least, not yet. Twelve of the 14 schools have changed coaches since 2007, and the other two Virginia Techs Frank Beamer and Wake Forests Jim Grobe are institutions on their campuses. But thats not to say they arent feeling any pressure. A fifth straight losing season for Grobe would make that 2006 Orange Bowl run feel like a lifetime ago, and all eyes in Blacksburg are on Beamers overhauled offensive staff after last years out-ofcharacter 7-6 finish.B4TUESDAY, AUGUST6, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOLLEGEFOOTBALL Associated PressOhio State coach Urban Meyer celebrates a touchdown Oct. 27, 2012, by Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller during a game against Penn State in State College, Pa.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSManziel issues cloud A&M campHOUSTON Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said the university is gathering facts after a report that quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January. Speaking to the media Monday before the Aggies open camp, Sumlin said he learned of the ESPN report Sunday. ESPN said the NCAA is investigating whether the Heisman Trophy winner was paid for the autographs, which could potentially violate its amateurism rules and put his eligibility in question. Sumlin said he would not speculate whether Manziel will be his starter when the season begins Aug. 31 against Rice.LSU RB Hill reinstatedBATON ROUGE, La. LSU coach Les Miles said running back Jeremy Hill has been reinstated and may practice immediately. Miles said Hill will face further punishment from coaches which will be handled internally, leaving open the possibility that Hill could be forced to sit out some games. However, Miles declined to specify how many games, if any, Hill may have to miss, adding the Hill already has been punished substantially during his more than threemonth suspension. Miles decision came hours after a judge decided not to send Hill to jail over a probation violation stemming from a punch he threw outside a bar in late April. The coach said he reinstated Hill only after teammates on Monday afternoon voted to invite Hill back to practice. Hill led LSU in rushing last season.NC State RB due in courtRALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina State running back Shadrach Thornton is due in court later this month after being charged with assault on a female. First-year coach Dave Doeren said in a statement Monday that Thornton didnt live up to the high standards that he has for the Wolfpack players. Thornton was arrested June 6 by Wake County sheriffs deputies and charged with misdemeanor assault on a female. From wire reports

Attention to the phenomenon has increased as its inspired a line of popular parenting and psychology books addressing its nature while advising parents how to avoid its pitfalls. According to psychologists whove witnessed and studied this style of parenting, anxiety in the parent is a fundamental catalyst. Parents that we see engaging in these behaviors have this great need for control, and it generally comes from a place of anxiety, said Brenda Richter, LMHC, a psychotherapist who works with parents Inside: See PARENTS/ Page C2 Power of Lifestyle/ C3 Sound Bites/C5 Nature Coast EMS/ C2 Advances made in cancer research Isawa patient almost three years ago; she was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Initially at the time of diagnosis, it was resectable and so she had surgery. Unfortunately, it recurred after one year or so. Now, this is stage 4 and is considered incurable. She came to see me at that time. There are two major types of lung cancer: non-small cell and small cell. NSCLC comes from epithelial cells and is the most common type. Small cell lung cancer begins in the nerve cells or hormone-producing cells of the lung. The term small cell refers to the size and shape of the cancer cells as seen under a microscope.

Despite the past few weeks of torrential rain, can you believe summer is close to being over? The first day back is always hectic;not only do children go back to school, but school buses that pick up and drop off parents and teenagers who are now mobile will be back on the road. This equals even more traffic. In my tradition, here are some helpful tips and reminders for the school zones and bus rules of the road. Leave the house a little earlier than normal to allow extra time driving to work. If you travel as part of your job, remember between 2:20 and 4 p.m. any school in any area of the county will be letting out for the day, so your morning traffic will start all over again. The next few rules (laws) will save you money. (Meaning you wont get a ticket if you follow them.) If the light is flashing, slow down to the speed required. If the crossing guard tells you to stop, stop. Here are the school bus rules of the road. If you are behind a school bus and it stops to pick up or drop off students, you must stop, and no, you cannot pass it. Secondly, on a twolane highway, both directions must stop. Third, if you are on a four-lane highway with a turn lane in between, both directions, (all four lanes), must stop. Lastly, if you are on a four-lane highway with an actual median separation, only the vehicles behind the bus must stop; however, if you are in one of the lanes opposite the bus, you should still use caution. Read these rules again and set them to memory. It will serve you well if the area is being monitored by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. (And you know it will be, especially early in the school year.) Just be safe and watch for the children. Nature Coast EMS team members all too often see accidents that could have been avoided, so watch your speed, look out for children, and be aware of the school buses. I have one more request. Please put your phone down and take care of any calls or texts when you reach your destination. Best wishes to students, faculty and staff in Citrus County for a safe and happy school year. We hope you all get As! As always, be safe, take care and stay well.Katie Lucas is the public information officer at Nature Coast EMS.

If we have someone who experiences any kind of anxiety disorder, then this is how it manifests when they have children. They try to be in charge of every aspect of what goes on with that child. California psychologist Madeline Levine has written a couple of recent books dealing with the topic, including Teach Your Children Well: Why Values and Coping Skills Matter More Than Grades, Trophies, or Fat Envelopes, and The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage Are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids, and she finds a similar condition with the parents. While we dont know how much our parenting affects our children, parenting is the only thing we have control over, she said in an interview with FORA.tv. The genesis of this has to do with parents who are feeling too fragile to be able to tolerate their kids unhappiness. Helicopter parenting suggests an image of a parent that is all-too-present and excessively involved in the lives of a child, but what is often occurring is an absence that leaves a child bereft of needed emotional attention. Levine recalled a seemingly paradoxical line from one her patients who, in describing her mothers lack of attentiveness among all of the busy shuffling, said her mother seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. The child may also be deprived of a degree of agency necessary for handling decision-making and enduring challenges with a stronger sense of self. Theyre not confident in making decisions because everythings been laid out before them, Richter said,and theyve never been given the opportunity where they make a mistake but maybe learn from it. The parents dont give the kid that option and that inhibits how youre supposed to learn in society. In a recent New York Timesop-ed, psychology professors Eli J. Finkel and Grainne M. Fitzsimons offered advice for parents on managing how much help they offer children, particularly in the area of education. They suggested the dynamics involved in helicopter parenting are not unique to parent-child relationships and can ultimately help to undermine the achievement prospects of a child, friend, spouse or other. As for how much assistance meets the Goldilocks standard of just the right amount, the pair conclude that providing help is best when the recipient clearly needs it, when our help complements rather than replaces the recipients own efforts, and when it makes recipients feel that were comfortable having them depend on us. Richter said parents will often either imitate their own parents approach or go in a totally opposite direction, and she claims children raised through attachment parenting are similarlyprone toextreme responses. Those children will either be totally inhibited, where they have problems with social phobias or a general lack of confidence in themselves, she said,or we see the opposite and they enter into a rebellion stage around middle school and high school against parents that want to control everything. It kind of runs the gamut depending on the personality of child. Richters husband is a guidance counselor in Hernando County, where, like Citrus County, the International Baccalaureate diploma program was recently installed. Such advanced educational regimes can be magnets for students with high-performance parents, and the pressure involved can spark conflicts between the priorities of the parent and the students self-determination. Moreover, when children excel in the classroom, troubling signs might be tougher to discern when all the right (superficial) boxes are checked. If youre a smart kid, thats great, but its an incredible amount of pressure, Richter said of the IB program. The kid may say theyre okay with advanced placement and the honors route, but they ask how they can have a social life if theyre in the IB program. And its hard to reason with parents whove decided this is whats going to happen. There are certainly social pressures that are capable of encouraging the behaviors attributed to helicopter parenting, such as the growth of tutoring and test-prep industries and the competitiveness of college admissions. And one would assume a serious concern for the fate of ones child is certainly not worthy of social stigma. But the message from Levine and others is that the traps of hyper-parenting are counterproductive to its stated aims. You ask parents what do they want for their child and they answer that they want them to be happy, Levine said.Fortunately, there is no correlation between how happy you are in life and the school you go to, and the correlation between the school you go to and your lifetime earnings is zero. Schools not a prize. School is a match. For a society rightly concerned about too little parenting and Richter, for one, said she more frequently observes the opposite of helicopter parenting in her work hyper-parenting might appear a trivial matter for many. But parenting isnt getting any easier, and anxiety remains a fundamental condition of being human. PARENTSContinued from Page C1 Use care when kids are present Katie LucasNATURE COAST EMS B.K.

Spinach has a fascinating history. It was originally cultivated in the Far East, eventually came to Persia and then on to Europe. It was regarded as good for health in all these places. Our word spinach is derived from Persia. China today still grows more of it than other country in the world, with the U.S. being the second largest producer. Spinach has spawned more modern myths than almost any other food. Its hard to believe, but some of these myths were created and perpetuated by scientists. Popeye the sailor-man is worldfamous for promoting spinach, and some of the myths swirl around him and his creator, E. Segar. According to an article in a leading medical journal in 1981, a German scientist analyzed spinach for its iron content in the 1870s, but when his report was published, a decimal error gave spinach 10 times more iron content than it truly has. This misled laymen and scientists into giving spinach more credit as a health food than it deserved. It also misled Segar into deciding to make spinach the secret of Popeyes superhuman strength. Popeyes love of spinach in turn caused U.S. spinach consumption to rise by 33 percent in the 1930s. Scientists cite this article to emphasize the importance of checking all facts and figures carefully before publishing them. Ironically, they did not check out the article they cite carefully enough. It is full of errors. 1. No published report on the iron content of spinach by the named German scientist is known to exist. 2. There never was a known published decimal error regarding the iron content of spinach. 3. Segar did not make the iron content of spinach his reason for choosing it as Popeyes superfood. 4. Popeyes love of spinach was not the cause of a sharp rise in U.S. spinach consumption. How did these errors become established in the scientific literature? In 1981, an article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) by T.J. Hamblin stated that a decimal error in spinach iron content published more than a century earlier in Germany misled a generation of scientists. It claimed the error was not corrected until 1937 by another German scientist. This article by Hamblin was subsequently cited by many other scientists in discussing this issue. Careful detective work by Dr. Mike Sutton revealed that Hamblins article was written tongue-in-cheek, but was taken as truth by many subsequent scientists who cited it as their authority. It turns out that this journals annual Christmas issue pokes fun at a variety of topics. Hamblins article in its 1981 Christmas issue was written in that vein, but later scientists missed the humor context. The BMJ is such a prestigious medical journal that any article citing it as a source is widely accepted as authoritative, and so the decimal error myth became accepted as fact. Sutton reported his findings in the Internet Journal of Criminology in 2010. (Sutton teaches criminology.) It took that long to expose the story of the decimal error concerning iron in spinach as myth. Sutton also researched the Popeye connection, and found that Segar chose spinach as Popeyes superfood on the basis of its rich vitamin A content, not its iron content. The confusion evidently arose because Popeye sometimes referred to himself in the comic strip as a man of iron. Finally, consumption of spinach in the U.S. was rising sharply before Popeye was created by Segar. So what is the truth about spinach? It is indeed a rich source of many vital nutrients, including vitamins A, K, C, E, and several B vitamins. Its a good source of many minerals, including manganese, magnesium, potassium, calcium and copper, and its a great source of fiber and a host of flavonoids and antioxidants. And yes, with up to 6.4 mgm of iron per cup of cooked spinach, its a valid source of iron. (This decimal point is correct!) The bioavailability of iron in spinach is not quite as good as that of heme-iron in meat, but its still a good source. On the negative side, a concern about spinach is its very high oxalic acid content. Other foods that are high in oxalic acid include almonds, beets, cocoa, dark chocolate, mixed nuts, all-bran, peanut butter, rhubarb, Swiss chard, sesame seeds and buckwheat flour. The list of all foods that are moderately high in oxalic acid is too long to cite, but it includes many common favorites. In short, oxalic acid is a natural substance found in many foods. Most people who are reasonably healthy have no problem with these foods. Yet the problem is serious for people who form calcium oxalate stones in the urinary tract. This affects a relatively small percentage of people, but for them its an excruciating problem. Calcium oxalate crystals form when these chemicals are too concentrated in the urine for genetic or dietary reasons, or a combination of both. To prevent stone formation in susceptible people, they need to keep their urine diluted by drinking at least three quarts of water daily, and they must strictly avoid foods high in oxalic acid. There are at least two other very rare diseases in which oxalic acid causes critical problems, but it isnt an issue for most of us. Most nutritionists put spinach at or near the top of the list of foods that are excellent for good health. In addition to being nutritious and delicious, its a versatile food. I buy a pound or two of organic spinach every week. Its one of our favorite foods. We often eat it raw (rinsed well) in salads, using it as a substitute for lettuce. Carol puts it into several of her blended juice recipes that we enjoy several times a week. We cook spinach or its green cousins (Swiss chard or kale) for supper two or three times a week, and its a great addition to lentil soup in cool weather. Its also a good ingredient in many other recipes. Except for those who cant handle oxalic acid well, spinach is a super food! Popeye had it right. A note of caution: If you are on a blood thinner, you must follow your doctors advice about restricting spinach or any other foods rich in vitamin K that may counteract the blood thinner. You may be able to eat some spinach, but follow your doctors advice about this.Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas.

In this new study, in postmenopausal women, height is positively associated with an increased risk of all cancers and also risk of specific cancers at numerous sites in the body. This research was recently published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. In this study, researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, N.Y., analyzed data for 144,701 women participating in the Womens Health Initiative. The Womens Health Initiative is a very large study that has been following hundreds of thousands of women for many years, tracking their habits and health history. The association between height measured at enrollment and risk of all cancers and risk of specific cancers at 19 sites was assessed. The researchers found that height was positively associated with a risk of all cancers. Height also was positively linked with an increased risk of cancers of the breast, colon, rectum, uterus, kidney, ovary, and thyroid. Height was also associated with and increased risk of developing melanoma skin cancer and multiple myeloma. While this is interesting information, at this point that is all that it is. Until researchers are able to understand the genetic code that associates height with cancer, no possibility exists to correct this problem or treat cancers in any different way that we do right now. As you all know, we can choose our friends, but we cannot choose our genes.Dr. C.

Small cell lung cancer is usually not treated with surgery while surgery is the main curative option of resectable NSCLC. Surgery is a good option for stage 1 and 2 NSCLC. Once it is stage 4, like my patient, surgery does not help. My patient was started on chemotherapy and she responded very well and she achieved complete remission. I started her on maintenance chemotherapy with Alimta. Recently, an excellent study was published online July 8 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. The researchers, led by Luis G. Paz-Ares, M.D., Ph.D., from the University Hospital Virgen del Roco in Seville, Spain, evaluated 939 patients with advanced NSCLC. All participants received the standard induction chemotherapy to induce disease remission. Those who did not progress and had a good performance status were then randomized to either maintenance Alimta or placebo. Those who received Alimta lived longer. The overall survival was 16.9 months for Alimta and 14.0 months for placebo. For patients alive at two years, Alimta therapy resulted in a significant 22 percent reduction in the risk for death. In addition, one-year survival rates were significantly longer with Alimta than with placebo (58 percent vs. 45 percent), as were two-year survival rates (32 percent vs. 21 percent). This is significant in the group of patients where usual survival is less than one year. My patient is getting this maintenance Alimta for almost 2 1/2 years and is doing very well. She is tolerating the chemotherapy well. She has practically no side effects and she travels around the state and country regularly.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Iknow I have written many times about the benefits of being a dentist, but I recently had another one of those experiences. I had a patient who came to me after years of reading the Chronicleand liking what he was reading. His problem was involved and complex. It took us a few consultations before we came up with a treatment plan he was comfortable with. Once this was accomplished the goal was set and we worked toward it. Well, it was about two weeks ago that I completed the case and both he and his wife are thrilled. They love his new smile. They are happy I was able to use two previously placed implants to retain his new upper teeth, in addition to saving two of his natural teeth to retain his lower teeth. One of the benefits of doing this case was that I had two people, the patient and his wife, that understood that it was going to take time and they were comfortable with me taking the time I needed to do it right. I tell all my patients that it just is not worth rushing things. Whether in dentistry, or life in general, it always comes back to haunt you. The other beautiful thing I had going for me was the support of a phenomenal lab. Without a good lab, all of my hard work in the office would be for nothing. Lastly, I am blessed to have a staff that, I always say, could win the Dental Olympics if there were one. As I have said before in this column, dentistry is such a rewarding career. If you or someone you know is thinking about a career in dentistry I would be happy to talk with them. After 25 years of doing this I am still excited to go to work each day. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for encouraging me to stay focused in life and providing me the opportunity for a career I love.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Hodgkins is a native of Citrus County and a graduate of the University of Florida. Growing up in Citrus County, Hodgkins felt it was important to volunteer with organizations that foster character development in young people. He first learned of the important work done by Boys & Girls Clubs while in school in Gainesville. After moving back home, I knew I wanted to become involved with a youth organization and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County was the perfect fit, he said. Our clubs empower our youths to strive for their goals and create a support network that lasts a lifetime. John brings leadership and enthusiasm to the board, as well as a desire to help kids reach their potential, said Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County Board president Chad Halleen.

TUESDAY, AUGUST6, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Edward R. Murrow is a central character in the World War II book Citizens of London by Lynne Olson (Random House). Murrow said, The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue. At the bridge table, since cards are hidden, distribution information can be uncertain. Players must try to allow for as many as possible. This deal is an example. South was in four hearts. How did he play after West surprisingly led the spade three and East dropped the king under dummys ace? North and South were using two-over-one game-forcing, so three hearts was forcing. South signed off in four hearts because he had a minimum opening bid. At trick two, declarer led a heart to his ace. When West dropped the 10, South wondered if this was a singleton or from a doubleton queen-10 or 10-nine. Rather than decide immediately, declarer led his diamond queen. West won with her ace and played another spade. East took the trick with his queen and returned a diamond. Now South had an almost sure thing. He carefully played a heart to his king. Here, the queen dropped, so he drew the last trump and claimed an overtrick. But if West had discarded, South would have played on clubs, discarding spades and holding East to one trump trick. Note that if South had finessed his heart jack at trick five, he would have failed, because West would have won the trick and led a spade, East overruffing dummys heart eight with his nine.

(N) (Live)NewsVideos Dear Annie: Recently, our beautiful, intelligent, kind, responsible 20-year-old daughter told us she is a lesbian. Sharon has been sorting this out alone for the past two years, which breaks my heart. She told us that she has prayed not to be this way, tried dating men and even came up with a plan to move out of the country. Sharons father, siblings and I were surprised, but have assured her that we are thankful she told us so she can truly be herself and be happy. We love her just the same. However, Sharon has not told the rest of our family. Other relatives have made it clear that they believe gays and lesbians are disturbed and disgusting individuals who are going to hell. They have, in fact, recently stated these vile opinions to Sharon when she was last visiting. She told me it felt as if she had been punched in the stomach. Ironically, Sharons grandparents think the sun rises and sets on her. They have no idea that their divisive, hateful, dehumanizing comments apply to someone they cherish. Sharon loves her grandparents, aunts and uncles and is terrified of how they will respond when they find out. We worry that their rejection will push her back into depression. According to PFLAG, suicide is the leading cause of death among gay and lesbian youth. More than 30 percent of all reported teen suicides each year are committed by gay and lesbian youth. Fifty percent report that their parents reject them due to their sexual orientation, and 26 percent are forced to leave home because of conflicts over their sexual orientation. These are the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews we love. We will stand with Sharon and pray for the judgmental, ignorant, bigoted souls to find enlightenment on this issue. Worried in Wyoming Dear Worried: Thank you for your compassionate understanding. Sharon does not need to come out to her relatives any sooner than she is comfortable, and it helps enormously that you are so supportive. In many instances, families become more accepting when they realize the gay person is someone they know and love. We hope that is how it works out for your family. Dear Annie: My band performs at a lot of wedding receptions. We usually make plans with the family regarding what music they want. We cannot alter our music in the middle of a set just because a guest who has had too much to drink comes up to us with a song request. If the bride and groom took the time to specify the songs they do and dont want to hear, they probably are not going to be happy if we suddenly start playing The Chicken Dance. One other tip: Talking to us while we are in the middle of a song is not a good idea. Please wait until we are on a break. Frustrated Bandleader Dear Frustrated: Excellent suggestions, and heres one from us: Can you please not set the amplifiers to 11? We can hear you just fine without going deaf. Dear Annie: I read the thoughtful letter from Concerned Grandma, who is caring for her biracial 4-year-old grandson. Your response left out one of the best role models this child could have: President Barack Obama. Perhaps reading Dreams from My Father will give this dear grandmother more insight into the struggles her grandson might face as a fatherless child, as well as hope and inspiration. A photo of our biracial president might be a sweet thing for this little boy to have. In addition, the grandmother might want to seek out someone who can help reinforce and strengthen her as she stands alongside this child in a lifelong learning adventure.
