In an address at the Disabled American Veterans convention in Orlando, Obama also announced a national plan to guide mental health research, as well as commitments from 250 community colleges and universities to help veterans earn college degrees or get the credentials they need to find jobs. A chief concern for veterans is the backlog of disability claims for compensation for illness and injury caused by military service. After years of military service, you shouldnt have to wait years for the benefits youve earned, Obama said. The number of claims ballooned after Obama made it easier for Vietnam veterans who were exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange to get benefits. Access to benefits also was eased for sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder and Gulf War veterans afflicted with malaria, Looming matter Overgrown trees threaten neighborA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerHERNANDO These days, Rex DeMeritt and his wife, Carol, spend a lot of their time eyeing a couple of hulking longleaf pines with a precipitous lean toward their house. A third is lying in a portion of their backyard alive and thriving. It fell about five months ago, missing their roofline by about 15 feet. The fallen tree and the others, which are leaning houseward, are sitting on an earthen berm, the result of long-ago pit mining in the neighboring property, according to Rex DeMeritt. Erosion has taken its toll and weakened the root systems of the trees, and now the trees hang over the DeMeritt house like a dark canopy. We are worried all the time. Each time it rains heavily or when our grandchildren are here, we are worried the trees will come down and hurt us or the children, DeMeritt said. He said he has found the neighbors number and called to discuss the potential dangers he is facing and asked for the trees to be cut down, but has met with negative results. He has also called the Citrus County Code Enforcement Division, which sent out investigators twice, but they, too, told him it is a civil matter. And according to DeMeritt, to make matters worse, the family cannot afford to retain an attorney at this time. What am I supposed to do? Wait until I am dead before I can get help? The neighboring property is registered as Half-Ass Ranch LLC and the registered agent is Charles McGee of Fort Pierce. When the Chroniclecontacted McGee, he declined comment, only saying he thought he had a meeting MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleInverness resident Rex DeMeritt says the trees on the property adjacent to his land are dangerously close to his home. He and his wife fear if one falls, it will destroy their home and injure anyone inside. See OBAMA/ Page A7 See LOOMING/ Page A7 CR council to receive waterfront report Monday A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The Crystal River City Councils meeting Monday promises to be heavy on issues as lofty as building heights and the scope and shape of the long-promised bayfront boardwalk to the nature of the next public safety contract. However, late word has it that talks may be forthcoming to address a perceived inequity regarding law enforcement services among city, county and sheriffs office officials. The promise of those talks will cause a recommendation of approval for the 2013-14 contract between the sheriffs office and the city, according to City Manager Andy Houston. At 6 p.m. the council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency, will hear from consultant Tom Kohler of Real Estate Research Consultants Inc. about how to proceed with the citys efforts to establish a flourishing commercial waterfront district. Last April, the CRA board approved a study of a proposed Waterfront Development District. The study is to address everything from what could be acceptable building heights on the commercial waterfront district and how to proceed with the long-sought boardwalk, which is designed to hug the shoreline behind Crackers Restaurant and will wend its way toward the downtown hub on Citrus Avenue. The study also looked at some of the following: The citys current Land Development Code. Determining the best mechanism for moving forward with a Attorney: No conflict representing CMH, TGH in transaction talks MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerWhen Citrus Memorial hospital officials wanted to seek out other private, nonprofit hospitals for a possible transaction, they asked attorney for Jim Kennedys help. Kennedy, with the Tampa law firm Carlton Fields, represents Citrus Memorial Health Foundation as its outside counsel and plays a lead role in the foundations ongoing litigation with the Citrus County Hospital Board. Kennedy also is considered a legal expert in health care in Florida. He counts many hospitals among his clientele. Of the hospitals Kennedy contacted, only one Tampa General Hospital showed enough interest to offer a bid for Citrus Memorial. Tampa General is familiar to Kennedy because it also is one of his clients. Tampa Generals bid, however, was quickly dismissed by the hospital board after hearing presentations from four bidders. Citrus Memorial and Tampa General continued talks. After all, both the foundation and hospital board must agree on the same bidder so the fact that CCHB eliminated Tampa General did not deter Citrus Memorial officials. Kennedy arranged a meeting with Citrus Memorial Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty and his counterpart at Tampa General. See ATTORNEY/ Page A8 See COUNCIL/ Page A8

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Todd Snipes was fired Friday for unprofessional conduct. County officials said Snipes showed horrible judgment made worse during a racially charged atmosphere. Snipes is accused of writing a post on Facebook after George Zimmermans acquittal in the 17-yearolds death that read: Another thug gone. Pull up your pants and be respectful. Bye bye thug r.i.p. Snipes was a Volusia lifeguard for 24 years and a law enforcement officer for 15. An official said Snipes apologized but that his remorse was not in any way proportionate to this damage.From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, AUGUST 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHe was a hospital director of more than 300 employees for 25 years, but no one knew his secret. James Kennedy was director of New England Memorial Hospital in Stoneham, Mass., and had severe dyslexia. His son, school board member Thomas Kennedy, said his dyslexia did not handicap his father in handling his responsibilities: multimillion dollar budgets, policymaking, human resources and handling purchases for the hospital. James Kennedy died Friday. He was 79. What was unique about my father was he did all of this while hiding from the world that he was illiterate, Thomas said. My father was diagnosed with the severest form of dyslexia.He spent his entire professional life having to overcome things that many people take for granted. His dyslexia was so severe that professors during the 1970s and s were fascinated by his learning strategies. When my father attended business classes at the University of Massachusetts, he took all of his tests orally, Thomas said. His professors were so impressed they did case studies on him and shared the accommodations he used to overcome his disability were perhaps equal to earningtwo doctors degrees. During these studies, three of his four children werediagnosed with dyslexia. Dad would hire intellectually disabled students and had no problems making sure they had opportunities to work at their fullest capabilities, Thomas said. He knew someone with disabilities was more capable sometimes than the professional world. He never wanted me to be ashamed of any challenges that either I had or his workers had, he continued. But it was interesting because he was always nervous (about) people knowing of his challenges. The only people that knew were his secretary, his immediate vice president and the president of the hospital. Thomas said his fathers life lessons have shaped his desire to working with ESE (Exceptional Student Education) students. When I got into office, my dad asked me to start sharing his story with students, he said. So the students could know that they, too, could be successful and they should not let any of their challenges hold them back from their successes in life. Thomass mother, Clarine Kennedy, campaigned in Massachusetts to ensure ESE students received their services. He said he grew up having both an advocate for a mother and an amazing supporter in my dad that pretty much said there is nothing that you can not do. Thomas running for the school board office made his father proud. When I was sworn in, my family stood up there with me, Thomas said. My dad put his hand on the Bible next to mine and recited the oath with me. He heard Sam Himmel say Put your hand on the Bible. Without thinking and being so proud, he just put his hand next to mine. I remember (school board attorney) Wes Bradshaw whispering in my ears, I think we swore your parents in with you. James and Clarine Kennedy moved to Citrus County in 1990. He was an honorably discharged National Guard veteran. He truly was a hero to me, Thomas said. I am proud to be his son. He is a man that I love so dearly. They had four children together: Cherie KennedyMilliron, Cindy KennedySilver, James Kennedy Jr. and Thomas Kennedy. He was an active member of the Hernando Seventhday Adventist Church. The love from the community has been overwhelming,Thomas said. It gives me more reason of why I have fallen in love with our community. I dontknow if I couldve done thisas easily and this has been the hardestthing I have ever had to go through. I feel so blessed to be in Citrus County. Services will be conducted at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16, at Brown Funeral Home in Lecanto. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to Hernando Seventh-day Adventist or Crystal River United Methodist churches food pantries. James Kennedy passes away at 79 School board members father moved to county in 1990; services Friday NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHERNANDODuring the height of the Vietnam War, Larry Tropf voluntarily enlisted in the Army and served two tours in Vietnam as part of the 713th Artillery. I left Vietnam on a stretcher, he said. After a four-year military hitch he returned home to Pittsburgh, Pa. But once a veteran, always a veteran. Now in his mid-60s, last year he had a hip replacement and double bypass heart surgery and the Citrus County Veterans Service Foundation helped him through that tough time. Founded in 2004, the not-forprofit foundation has provided about $30,000 a year in financial assistance to honorably discharged Citrus County veterans or their surviving spouses who need urgent, emergency help. The most common requests are for help with paying electric bills, rent or gas money to get to the V.A. clinic in Gainesville or to a job interview. Grants are capped at $500. Requests go through Sam Dininno, Citrus Countyveterans service officer, who disburses the funds. Back when Royce Carter was the county veterans service officer, veterans would come in all the time needing emergency financial assistance, and, of course, the county doesnt provide that, explained Curt Ebitz, the foundations founder and current vice president. Royce would call individual veterans in the community who might have the means and the will to make a donation and took care of it that way. The foundation was created so more veterans could be helped. Last year was a bad year, Tropf said. We were backed up on some medical bills, so I went to them and they helped me out. That $200 made a difference. As a war-injured veteran, Tropf knows firsthand the difficulties veterans face, and he especially feels for the veterans who are on their second and third combat tours in Afghanistan. Its on your mind, what youve been through, he said, but these kids are coming home and being sent right back. The strain it must put on them. Thats why theres so much PTSD, he said, referring to post-traumatic stress disorder. Ebitz said the foundation and the work it does to help veterans has gone largely unrecognized, and they want to get the word out. Weve given out over a quarter-million dollars, he said. The ninth annual Citrus County Veterans Foundation Golf Tournament will take place Sept. 7 at Citrus Hills. For information, visit the foundations website at www.citrusvf.org. Call Sam Dininno, county veterans service officer, at 352527-5915.

Birthday Take advantage of any opportunities to increase your knowledge in your chosen field of endeavor in the coming months. The effort will prove worth it in the long run. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Though you are likely to be an old softy today, to achieve anything of significance, you might have to be a bit more thickskinned than usual. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It isnt likely you will appreciate being told what to do and when and how to do it, so its best to avoid associates who always try to impose their ways on you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Someone you know socially could turn out to be a pretty tough customer when engaged in business. Limit your expectations about getting any great deals. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If youre negotiating a matter of considerable importance, it might be wise to have a capable someone serve as a buffer. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If some of your assignments and responsibilities are being rearranged, dont volunteer to take on more than you can handle. Be realistic. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If the root cause of your discomfort has yet to be eradicated, try to avoid a group in which certain members make you feel uneasy. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Dont rely on Lady Luck to bail you out of choppy waters. Instead of rooting for you, she might help others trip you up even more. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Forgo any temptations to boast about or exaggerate your accomplishments. Instead of looking good in the eyes of others, you might do the opposite. Aries (March 21-April 19) Financial mistakes could have a larger price than youre prepared to pay, so you may need to be careful when it comes to your money. Dont take any risks. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Usually, you appreciate the value of compromise and the wisdom of making concessions. Today, however, you might dig in on an issue that moves you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Go ahead and extend a helping hand to someone, but dont let a clever manipulator use your gesture against you. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Your thinking might not be as clear as usual. For some reason, you might treat serious matters too indifferently.

Its roster of participants is impressive: former President Bill Clinton, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer three Baldwins, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Simon, Jackson Pollock and Kurt Vonnegut to name just a few. Organizers of the annual East Hampton Artists & Writers softball games are a little fuzzy about when they got their start most peg it to around 1948, when artists including Pollock, Willem de Kooning and others organized casual pickup games on summer afternoons in their yards. Today they have become one of the premier events in the Hamptons, New Yorks summer resort for the haves and havemores. Ive played against some of the greatest house painters in the world, joked reporter Carl Bernstein, making a common, good-natured accusation that his opponents pepper their rosters with ringers to gain a competitive advantage. This years game, billed as the 65th and slated for Aug. 17, is expected to draw thousands to watch writers such as Bernstein, Richard Reeves and Mike Lupica play artists including Domingo Zapata and Eric Ernst and actors Josh Charles, Lori Singer and others. With the support of corporate sponsors and deep-pocketed donors, the game is expected to raise $100,000 for eastern Long Island charities.Avengers strike at Disney expoANAHEIM, Calif. A few friends of The Avengers touched down at the D23 Expo. Tom Hiddleston Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins from Thor: The Dark World and Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and Chris Evans from Captain America: The Winter Soldier appeared on stage Saturday at the celebration of all things Disney. Hiddleston apologized for not donning his Loki costume, which he wore earlier this summer at Comic-Con. Evans jokingly invited the crowd at Californias Anaheim Convention Center to join him at Disneyland across the street.

Publicist Nicole Perna said the Look At Me Now singer suffered a non-epileptic seizure early Friday morning while he was working in a Los Angeles studio. A doctor examined the 24year-old, but he wasnt hospitalized. Perna said what she referred to as the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity contributed to Browns illness. The singer has been on felony probation since the 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna. A judge revoked his probation last month and ordered a hearing in a May 12 hit-and-run case. In February, authorities investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean did not press charges.

He recalled that she told him: Never forget that you got to see Kennedy the night before he died. When he was 18, Beef read that the burial plot next to Oswalds was available. He bought it for $17.50 down and 16 monthly payments of $10. Beef said he has often asked himself why he wanted it. It meant something to me in life, is the only answer he can come up with. Beef moved to New York, married, had two children and divorced. He did some freelance comedy writing using the name Nick Beef, a moniker he came up with while joking around with a friend. His mother died in late 1996 and he returned to Texas to arrange her funeral. He told the Timesthat during his stay, he visited his burial plot and decided to buy a gravestone with the exact dimensions as Oswalds. He told the cemetery official to inscribe it Nick Beef. He has no plans to ever be buried there. He said he would prefer to be cremated. Associated PressNEW YORK For years, curiosity seekers visiting the Fort Worth, Texas, grave of Lee Harvey Oswald have wondered about the simple headstone next door, marked Nick Beef. It turns out Nick Beef is alive and living in New York.The New York Timesreported the 56-year-old man who uses that name purchased the cemetery plot next to Oswalds in 1975 and had the granite marker placed there in 1997. Beef, born Patric Abedin, now lives in Manhattanand calls himself a nonperforming performance artist. On Nov. 21, 1963, President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, landed at the former Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth as part of a two-day Texas tour. Beef, then 6 years old, was sitting on the shoulders of a military police officer in the crowd when the first couple passed just a few feet away. Oswald shot Kennedy the next day. Young Patric used to sometimes visit Oswalds grave with his mother. Carl Balyeat, 70INVERNESSCarl L.

REX C. CURRY/The New York TimesA headstone marking the grave of Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated President John F. Kennedy in 1963, lies next to a marker inscribed with Nick Beef on Aug. 6 at Shannon Rose Hill Cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas. Associated PressKITTERY, Maine Tom Mader remembers the USS Miami when it was a metal hull filled with shipbuilders putting the final touches on the nuclearpowered submarine at Electric Boat in Connecticut. He was the skipper when the submarine was commissioned in 1990. As a plank owner a Navy ships original crew member he cant help but be disappointed that the firedamaged submarine is going to be cut up for scrap instead of going back to sea to serve its country. I can speak for all of the plank owners: Its emotional for us to see one of the ships that we helped test and build and put to sea be laid to rest, the retired Navy captain said from his home in Benicia, Calif. Destined for premature retirement, the USS Miami will have an asterisk next to its name when its removed from the Navys rolls of active warships because an arsonist caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, effectively sinking the ship. The blaze started in May 2012 when a shipyard worker set fire to a box of rags and grew into an inferno that took 100 firefighters 12 days to douse. The submarine based in Groton, Conn., suffered severe damage to forward compartments including living quarters, a command and control center, and the torpedo room. Seven people were hurt. The worker who set the fire said he was suffering from anxiety and wanted to leave work early. Hes serving a 17year prison sentence. The most sickening part to me is that we didnt lose this submarine due to enemy attack or terrorism. We lost it due to an American citizen wanting to leave work, said David Padgett, a plank owner living in Mystic, Conn. She was a good ship. She had a lot of good years left in her. With the Navy short of submarines in particular, the Pentagon wanted to repair the 23-year-old submarine and send it back to sea for five more deployments. But the $450 million repair grew to $700 million when new damage was discovered. The high cost, along with sequestration, combined to scuttle the repairs. Despite marker, Nick Beef alive and well The USS Miami arrives in port April 26, 2004, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Pentagon wanted to repair the submarine and send it back to sea, but $450 million in repairs grew to $700 million, so instead it will be removed from service.Associated Press For vets, Miamis retirement too soon, even if appropriate

West Nile virus or other infectious diseases. The backlog is shrinking due to some aggressive steps taken by the Department of Veterans Affairs, including requiring claims processors in its 56 regional benefits offices to work overtime and moving from a manual to a computerized system to help speed the judgment of claims, administration officials said. About 780,000 claims are pending. About 496,000 are considered backlogged after the 20 percent reduction Obama highlighted, down from 611,000 at the end of March, said White House press secretary Jay Carney. A claim is considered backlogged if it has been in the system for 125 days, or roughly four months. Even with that progress, Obama acknowledged the amount of work still needed to eliminate the backup by 2015 as VA Secretary Eric Shinseki has promised. Today I can report that we are not where we need to be, but we are making progress, Obama said. So after years when the backlog kept growing, finally the backlog is shrinking. The president also announced the release of a comprehensive national plan to improve the ability to prevent, diagnose and treat PTSD and traumatic brain injuries and mental health issues earlier and better, and to reduce suicides, according to a briefing paper the White House released Saturday before the president spoke. Beyond the claims issue, Republican lawmakers have started to hammer the VA on the issue of patient safety. A congressional hearing in Atlanta this past week focused on poor patient care linked to four deaths. Another hearing is scheduled for next month in Pittsburgh, where five veterans died as a result of a Legionnaires disease outbreak in 2011-12. Several dozen protesters greeted Obama as he arrived at the hotel. Some held signs that said Kenyan Go Home, Impeach Obama, and Obama Lies. Obama met privately with DAV members before the speech, the White House said. Afterward, he headed to Marthas Vineyard, Mass., for a family vacation. planned with DeMeritt in a week to work things out. Unfortunately, said Jenette Collins, the head of the countys land development division, the county does not have any laws addressing something like this. It is a private matter, Collins said. Jackie Gorman, the city of Crystal Rivers planning director, said they, too, run into similar issues involving trees and offered the following tips to diffuse such situations: Reach out to the neighbors, but do it in non-confrontational manner even offer to help take down the tree. Make them understand that it is better to resolve it this way than to wait until later when someone gets hurt, Gorman said. Write a letter to them and their insurance company, if you know it, and explain what is going on. Gorman said insurance companies generally understand the liabilities entailed in these kinds of situations, especially if there is the potential for people to get badly hurt. She said the DeMeritts could also inform their insurance company, which can easily reach out to the neighbors insurer. Getting rid of trees is not cheap anymore. Gone are the days when tree cutters will come cut your tree for the lumber, Gorman added. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

The eventual result was the hospital foundation board voting to give Tampa General until mid-September to submit another bid to include financial incentives such a capital investment. Kennedy and Citrus Memorial officials say there is no conflict with Kennedy representing both Citrus Memorial and Tampa General. Its not a conflict until theres a decision, and then the conflict kicks in and we address it, said Inverness attorney Clark Stillwell, Citrus Memorials general counsel. Stillwell referred to an agreement signed by Kennedy and hospital officials that states Kennedy will not represent Citrus Memorial if both hospitals sign a transaction letter of intent. If that happens, the agreement states, Kennedy will represent Tampa General and Stillwell or another attorney will represent Citrus Memorial in negotiating a final contract. Kennedy said the conflict letter addresses only the transaction issue. His law firm will continue to represent Citrus Memorial in its legal issues with the hospital board regardless of the transactions outcome. Kennedy said it isnt unusual to represent two non-competing parties, especially in the limited field of health care. This seems very normal to me, he said. Stillwell said he has experience representing both parties in a transaction. Asked to name an example, he said he represented both Citrus Publishing, which publishes the Citrus County Chronicle, and landowner Stan Olsen when the newspaper wanted to buy land to expand its printing plant. Our firm was involved on both sides of the transaction, he said. Both parties signed a waiver, the deal closed and it was successful. Kennedy attended the July 10 hospital board meeting where trustees heard presentations from four bidders Tampa General, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Health Management Associates (HMA) and RegionalCare Hospital Partners. After the presentations, trustees voted to eliminate Tampa General from consideration because it offered an affiliation with no cash in the transaction. It promised an undetermined amount of capital investment; however, as a nonprofit, it would continue to receive a property tax exemption just as Citrus Memorial enjoys. Since then, trustees said they would listen to a renewed offer from Tampa General. They did not oppose the foundations vote to give Tampa General until September to update its bid. Along with seeking another bid from Tampa General, the foundation said it also wanted to consider a letter of intent with HCA. Kennedy said he was disappointed with the trustees initial decision to eliminate Tampa General. I thought the not-for-profit participant would be a good fit for the process, he said. The hospitals share a similar vision and values. Tampa General has a long tradition of serving the poor. master site development plan for the district. Recommendations for encouraging incentives for private investment within the district. Recommendations for improving public access to the area. Following the CRA meeting, the council will have its regular meeting at 7 p.m., at which the issue of equity regarding what the city pays for law enforcement services is going to be raised. The citys contract with the sheriffs office for policing services in the next year has been held up as officials tried to work out differences. The way Houston sees it, residents of Crystal River are paying 3.914 mills or $291.40 for law enforcement services. He says $130 of that amount or 1.3 mills is collected by the county for road patrol. That is patrol, Houston contends, residents do not benefit from because the city has had a contract with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for enhanced services, which includes patrol officers, since 2008. Houston wants the cities to be excused from paying their portion to the county. We already have law enforcement services because of our contract. We should not have to pay for service that is going to county residents and we are not getting here in the city, Houston added. City officials tried to make their case to the sheriffs office and county officials. The city wanted the county to introduce a Municipal Services Taxing Unit for road patrol in which the city would be exempted, but county officials jettisoned that idea. City officials then tried to get the sheriffs office to trim its contract. Commander Buddy Grant of the sheriffs office said the contract between his agency and city calls for enhanced services and that is what the agency is delivering. Any reductions in the contract, he added, will have to mean corresponding reductions in the services. If we give them a break on the contract, but continue with the enhanced services, that would not be fair to the other residents of the county, Grant said. He said the agency is not a taxing authority, which therefore makes the issue something the county and city should work out. But County Commissioners Dennis Damato and J.J. Kenney said the matter is between the sheriffs office and the city because it was the city that wanted enhanced services and willingly entered into a contract with the sheriffs office. If they are not happy with the contract, they should talk to the sheriffs office about that contract, but the money they are paying to the county for road patrol is because the citys residents are residents of the county, Damato said. Thursday, Houston said he talked to Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and County Administrator Brad Thorpe and both are amenable to sitting down in the future to come to an understanding. The sheriffs office said Dawsy is going to try to broker a deal between the county and city. Houston told the Chroniclehe would recommend to the city council to go ahead and OK the sheriffs office contract for the upcoming year. The city council also will: Hear the latest crime numbers from the sheriffs offices west-side commander Capt. Danny Linhart. Get an annual report from Janet Mulligan, chairwoman of the citys Waterfronts Advisory Board. Consider approval of a measure to reimburse Crystal River Fire Department volunteer firefighters who reside outside the city limits the amount of the county municipal services benefit unit fire fee. Thirteen of the 16 firefighters live outside city lines. Consider approval to name the boardwalk currently under construction at the Academy of Environmental Science property as the Gary Maidhof Walk to Nature. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

CARLOSFRIAS The Palm Beach PostWEST PALM BEACH Maybe a horse kicked him. Maybe he got his leg caught in a door. The only thing Renee Gumbs knew when she got her hands back on the Great Dane puppy she had sold to a couple on a farm in California was that his right rear leg was shattered, and his life was in danger. Enzo would never be a show dog, not now. But the bigger question was whether she would have to put him to sleep. As late as a decade ago, it would have been no question at all: Enzo would have died. An injury that severe and the cost to try to repair it was beyond most peoples means. But today, technology and disposable income have met at a crossroads. You dont even think about it. You just call and schedule the surgery, Gumbs said. Nowadays, anything you can do for a person, you can do for an animal. About $5,000 and months of rehab yes, rehab, in a pool and on a treadmill later, Enzo is the spoiled, beloved pride of this Palm Beach Gardens Great Dane breeder. And although Gumbs has the means the guesthouse and three-car garage of her Intracoastal home have been converted into air-conditioned kennels, complete with fullsize beds and a staff of seven to care for her dogs average families are also taking advantage of medical advances. Because dogs and cats arent just pets anymore. Theyre members of the family. Nationally, pets are living longer, according to statistics by Banfield Pet Hospitals. The average dog lives 11 years 11.3 years in Florida, according to information from more than 2 million dogs seen in their hospitals last year. Cats, which live 12.1 years on average nationally, have an 11.8-year lifespan in Florida. Veterinary medicine has changed over the years, and its driven by public demand, no question about it, said Dr. Robert Roy, who three years ago built a $7 million, 33,000-square-foot facility for Palm Beach Veterinary Specialists that is one of a handful popping up across the state to give pets humanquality care. These specialty pet hospitals dwarf most human clinics. Veterinary cardiologists perform openheart surgery, oncologists treat cancers with chemotherapy and radiation, orthopedists repair knees and joints, even dermatologists and ophthalmologists treat pets for skin and eye disorders. Ten years ago is caveman medicine compared to what we can do today, said Dr. Ken Simmons of Lake Worths Simmons Veterinary Hospital. My clients are people with furry family members, and they come in expecting that their pet is going to get the kind of care they would expect for their kids dermatology, gynecology. They want it all. Enzo the Great Dane got his knee reconstructed by Roy, whose clinic looks like a satellite human hospital, complete with a staff of more than 85 people, including 20 specialty veterinarians and radiologists. In his facility, Roy has installed a pacemaker in a beagle, overseen a dogs cataract surgery, and directed chemotherapy for cats. The occasional exotics come through the doors, from iguanas to turtles and parrots. But a nearly endless stream of dogs and cats with advanced medical needs keeps the staff working 24 hours a day. Its really a comprehensive facility for pets, said Roy, 55. From the outside, on the corner of Kirk Road and Forest Hill Boulevard, it looks like a medical campus, lined with palm trees and neutral stucco walls. And even through the sliding glass doors it looks like any human hospital, with dark wood, granite, cool fluorescent lighting and generic furniture, and the smell only of disinfectant. The hospital is sprawling: Theres an auditorium for lectures, four operating rooms, a human-caliber MRI machine, a human CAT scan machine for actual cats. High-tech Xray machines give instant results on iPads. Theyve done arthroscopic surgery and regularly do open-heart and brain surgery to remove tumors. In the fall, theyll add a linear particle accelerator, so the vet oncologists will have the latest technology to blast cancers with radiation as well as chemotherapy. Pets are such an integral part of peoples lives down here, said Michele Tucker, who oversees the medical operations and has worked for Roy for 12 years. They have a different perspective of a pet within a family, and thats why we can have a facility like this. For those who travel across the state so their pets can be treated here, the hospital has a family room with a pull-out bed, flat-screen television and a private entrance. Outside, theres a memorial park where owners who have to make end-of-life decisions for their pet can have them euthanized outdoors, under the blanket of nature, rather than the cold interior of a hospital. In short: Now, theres almost nothing they cant do to treat a sick pet like a sick person. Associated PressMIAMI BEACH The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will conduct an independent review of the investigation into the death of a teenager who died after being shocked with a Taser by police. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Saturday the agency will review the Miami Beach Police Departments investigation into the death of 18-year-old Israel Hernandez-Llach. Miami Beach officials and the teens family requested the review. I have complete confidence in the integrity and capacity of the Miami Beach Police Department to conduct a fair and thorough investigation, Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales said. But the role of the FDLE will provide further assurance to the public of the thoroughness and transparency of the investigation. Hernandez-Llach was a graffiti artist known as Reefa. Police said they spotted him spray-painting a shuttered fast food restaurant in Miami Beach early Tuesday. He then allegedly led police on a foot chase, ignoring their orders to stop. Police said he was shocked with a Taser once in the chest and then showed signs of distress. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died. Plessinger said the FDLE will review and advise Miami Beach authorities if there is anything they note police conducting the investigation need to look into. Hernandez-Llachs family members, teachers and friends said the teen was a talented artist who had works displayed in galleries and museums around South Florida.

ALLENG. BREED Associated PressArmy Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan admits pulling out a pistol, shouting Allahu akbar (God is great) and opening fire on unarmed people, killing 13 of them. All, he says, in an effort to stop them from going to Afghanistan and killing his fellow Muslims. Concluding he was on the wrong side in Americas war, he told jurors at his courtmartial that he switched sides. So, victims and others are demanding, why is the November 2009 attack at Fort Hood being tried as a case of workplace violence and not as an act of terror? Military law expert Scott L. Silliman says the answer is simple. Because the Uniform Code of Military Justice does not have a punitive article for terrorism. They really didnt have an option, says Silliman, director emeritus of Duke Universitys Center on Law, Ethics and National Security in Durham, N.C. He was an active-duty officer. The crime occurred on a military installation. ... It was obvious he was going to face a court-martial. Victims of the shooting rampage filed a lawsuit last year over the administrations decision to treat the incident as workplace violence. They say that designation has robbed them of benefits and made them ineligible to receive the Purple Heart, awarded to service members wounded in battle. On Monday, the staff of the magazine National Review launched a petition drive directed at Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, arguing that the Army psychiatrist should be tried as an enemy combatant for what they consider an Act of Terror. By not designating this event as such an act, it disrespects the lives of the 13 who lost their lives that day, and dozens more who were injured, the petition reads. This is outrageous and I call on you to change the official designation now before proceedings against Hasan go further. While Silliman understands the outrage, he says transferring the case to civil courts where a terror charge could attach was just not possible. It would have been totally unprecedented to have that sort of thing occur, says Silliman, who has served as senior attorney at two large military installations and three major Air Force commands. Now, if the crime had occurred off the post, then there might have been what we call concurrent jurisdiction between the civilian authorities and the military authorities. Why cant the administration call this an act of terror without charging Hasan as a terrorist? According to a widely quoted Pentagon position paper opposing Purple Hearts for the victims that would allow the defense to argue that Hasan cannot receive a fair trial because a branch of government has indirectly declared that Major Hasan is a terrorist that he is criminally culpable. Reed Rubinstein, one of the attorneys representing a number of the shooting victims and their families, calls that argument disingenuous. The National Counterterrorism Center and State Department both counted the incident among terror attacks that year, he notes. The White House and Department of Defense have balked, he argues, because too many people didnt heed warning signs that Hasan was becoming increasingly radical leading up to his deployment to Afghanistan. The truth of the matter is, it comes down to politics, the Washington attorney says. It comes down to covering up the political correctness that was the proximate cause of this attack in the first instance. Rubinstein is not calling for a terrorism charge but argues the government could administratively rule this was an act of terror so his clients can qualify for more benefits and the Purple Heart, which comes with its own set of recognitions and privileges. Hasan is representing himself during the court-martial. Because he faces the death penalty, military law precluded him from entering a guilty plea. But he conceded in his opening statement Tuesday, as he has previously, that he did the shooting. Military prosecutors could have added a civilian charge of terrorism, says Geoffrey Corn, a retired lieutenant colonel and former military lawyer. But he argues that would have added an unnecessary layer of complexity with little, if any, benefit. Its never been done in a military court before, says Corn, a professor at the South Texas College of Law. Was he motivated by a terrorist agenda? Certainly. Will they present that evidence? Certainly. But the crimes he committed were premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder. Corn says it would be difficult to make the case for Hasan as an enemy combatant. While Hasan may have been inspired by alQaida and even had contact with known terror suspects, it does not appear he received orders from the group, Corn says. Rubinstein terms the governments refusal to call the shooting incident a terrorist attack for purposes of awarding benefits a kick in the teeth to the victims. They have to hear about workplace violence, he says. Theyre told that what happened to them was no big deal. Pay no attention to the fact that he was a jihadist. Never mind that we knew and the FBI knew. But his career, because of his ethnicity and his religion, was more important to us than your lives. Forget all that. Government attorneys have asked a federal judge to postpone the civil case, which seeks to reclassify the incident so as to make combat-related pay and other benefits available to the victims, until after the courtmartial and post-trial processing are completed. That could take up to nine months. Victim Shawn Manning estimates he has lost $2,000 a month in pay and benefits because of the decision to classify the injuries as resulting from workplace violence rather than combat or terrorist-related. Had his injuries been classified that way, the military would have paid the difference between his civilian and reserve salary, offered him better medical benefits and granted him greater disability payments. And Hasan is still collecting his major pay, growls Manning, who now works as a civilian mental health specialist at Fort Lewis, Wash. Thats not correct, agrees former Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who was shot seven times and still carries one slug in his back. He and Manning spoke to The Associated Press before a military judges order this week not to discuss the case. Silliman says that, too, is the way the military system operates. Remember, he is innocent until determined otherwise, he says. Hes going to be drawing full pay as a United States Army major ... until a sentence is awarded in the case and that sentence is approved by the convening authority.

Irecently saw a show on TV about cryogenics the science of freezing your brain after you die so that someday, when they find the cure for whatever killed you, they can insert your brain into a new body and you can pick up where you left off. Riding that motorcycle. Im not a doctor or a scientist, but it seems to me that there are two big problems with this idea, even if they ever figure out how to do it. One: What body are they going to put your frozen brain into? Maybe Ive missed something, but dont most bodies already have a brain in them? Are they going to take out my brain so they can put in yours? That doesnt sound fair, even if they freeze my brain to reinstall later. Excuse me, new brain, but I was here first. And if they use clones, well, it seems to me the clone might have a few things to say about it, like Youre not taking my brain! It seems wed be back to square one theyd have to take out one brain to put in another. And, really, is your brain that much more wonderful than anyone elses? Now, there is some debate about this. Half the time Sue doesnt think I have a brain, but other times she wonders if I only have half a brain. Either way, Im pretty sure she wouldnt pay to have it frozen. Shed rather spend the money on HBO or Starz or Netflix. It would be cheaper and certainly more entertaining. And what would I do while my brains frozen? What if it takes 50 years, or 100, to cure me? Would I have to answer 50 years worth of email when I woke up? What if they put me in a body thats worse than the one I had when I died? Will I have to learn how to use an even smarter phone than I have now? What will a house cost 50 years from now a hundred million dollars? Where will I make that kind of money? As a greeter at Space Mart? The second thing that bothers me is the freezing part. I drank a milkshake a little too fast a few years ago and it hurt like crazy. A brain freeze. So what if having your brain really frozen, really hurts? How are you going to tell anyone? Your mouth, along with the rest of your body, was burned to ashes and thrown into the ocean off of Maui or someplace. So they wake you up 50 years later and youre out of work, your wife is now married to Walt Disney and your head hurts like someone has worked you over with a nail gun. People will be telling jokes that you wont get because you havent seen the holograms theyve been watching, and you wonder who to vote for in our new 57-party political system. Youll have to learn how to text (or whatever replaces it), something you havent even done in this life. Then theres the health issue. Have you ever taken a steak out of the freezer thats been accidentally overlooked for, oh, six or seven years? Would you eat it? I would, but would a normal person like you eat it? Most likely youre thinking, why take a chance? Well, what do you think your brain will look like after its been on ice for 50 or 100 years? Maybe the cryogenic freezer lost power once every 15 years for a couple of hours. Maybe a little bit longer. You no longer qualify for a new body, because you left a few IQ points on the freezer wrap. So they put what was left of your brain in some teenagers cellphone, where you get to correct his spelling mistakes all day long because its the one job left where humans are better than machines.Contact Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks.com. Do you remember a very interesting and different car from the 1960s the Chevrolet Corvair? It was a compact produced for the 1960 to 1969 model years. It was the only American-designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rearmounted, air-cooled engine. The Corvairs legacy was affected by controversy started by Ralph Nader regarding its safety due to handling issues. However, the National Highway Safety Administration subsequently had a safety review conducted and concluded the Corvairs possessed no greater potential for loss of control than their contemporaries in extreme situations. The Corvair faced competition from the Ford Mustang, Chevys own Camaro and other pony cars. It had been costly to produce, yet was not offered at a premium price; not a highprofit earner for Chevrolet. Although almost 2 million Corvairs were produced during its 10-year run, you dont see too many of them around today. You can see a number of these amazing cars in a local car club for Corvair enthusiasts the Nature Coast Corvair Club. The club was started in January 1998 by a few local Corvair owners. Their first meeting was attended by 19 people and several of them joined the club that night. Since they had enough members for sanctioning by the Corvair Society of America (CORSA), they applied for and received sanctioning by CORSA in June 1998. They currently have 37 members in the club who own 17 Corvairs from 1963 through 1969. The vehicles are two-doors, four-doors, hard-tops, convertibles, turbos and a customized Corvair Hot Rod purchased from California. Several of the members got together and built an autocross racing Corvair, which has taken first place in St. Augustine several times. There are also members in the club with orphan vehicles (nonCorvairs) such as Ford, Studebaker, Chevy and Buick, as orphan owners are also permitted to join the club. They welcome anyone who is interested in preservation of classic cars to become members. The club holds an annual car and truck show with proceeds benefiting local charities. There were more than 160 classic cars older than 25 years at their show this past March in Inverness. Kathy Neumann, club treasurer, was kind enough to provide the information about the club for this article. Kathy got into cars when she was 12 years old. She and her family have been involved with vehicles, such as go-karts, classic cars, drag racing, motorcycles, stock cars and especially Corvairs for many years. They currently have a 1966 Corvair Corsa Turbo convertible, but have had as many as five Corvairs at one time. In 1983, Kathy and her husband, Herb, moved their upholstery business from Long Island, N.Y., to Inverness, which is now owned and operated by their two sons. If you own a Corvair or a classic car 25 years or older and want to join the club, call Club President Ted Rockentine at 352-8601205, George Neumann at 352-302-9058 or Kathy at 352-344-4210. Car joke: A motorist accidentally hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. Feeling guilty about the incident, he asked the farmer how much the animal was worth. About $300 today, replied the farmer, but in six years it would have been worth $900. So realistically, Im $900 out of pocket. Thats what I want as compensation. The motorist wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. Here is a check for $900, he said. Its postdated six years from today.

A12SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEVETERANS The Citrus County Veterans Services Department is looking for veterans who have recently transitioned from the military (or returning reservist from tours of active duty) to Citrus County within the past two years. The office will schedule a seminar to discuss benefits and solicit ideas. Call 352-527-5915 to reserve a seat. For more information about the Citrus County Veterans Office, visit www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/ commserv/vets.Of SPECIAL NOTE Ive been asked several times this past month if a veteran must be disabled in order to register with the Veterans Administration and make use of the medical benefits offered at their clinics and labs. I personally doublechecked with the VA Clinic on Marc Knighton Court in Lecanto and confirmed that a veteran need not be disabled in order to register with the VA for benefits, including medical and laboratory services. There are several facets of this registration and these benefits vets and their families need to be aware of. First, a veteran does need proof of other than dishonorable discharge from military service, also known as a DD-214, which will have the veterans name, personal identifying information, rank(s), dates and locations of service, as well as other information which might include merits, ribbons or medals earned during the tour of service. Some veterans may have more than one DD-214, containing differing information, depending on the type and location(s) of service. Try to have all the applicable paperwork when you register with the VA to avoid a delay in the enrollment process. Somewhere between 30 days to a few months later, a letter should arrive in the mail announcing acceptance into the program, along with a welcome packet with names and phone numbers of resources. Some time after that, an appointment will be scheduled with a VA physician for an initial exam and a lab for a blood analysis. A photo ID card will be produced, which the veteran will need to present often, so keep it in a safe but easily accessible place. This card has a magnetic strip on the back, so be cautious about damaging that strip. Replacing this card is time-consuming, difficult and better if avoided. VA benefits can include medical examinations, prescriptions, eye exams and glasses (some frames may bring an additional cost). Pulmonary, cardiac and blood work are also provided through the VA, as is hospitalization and nursing home care. The nursing home need not be a VA facility; as a matter of fact, the HPH Hospice House in Lecanto is part of the VA system and qualifies under these benefits. Demographic forms and a means test are completed periodically, which gives the veteran the option to reveal financial information including assets and bank balances. If the veterans total assets are below a certain amount, then there is no co-pay for services rendered or for prescriptions provided by mail from the pharmacy at the Gainesville location. If a veteran declines to reveal financial information or lists income and assets of more than a certain amount, then a co-pay is determined based on the amounts involved. It is worth the time to read through this form and see what money you can save. Travel beneficiary reimbursement is another benefit that many dont know about or forget to file. This is a per-mile reimbursement (typically lower than the federally determined rate), and it is listed as one-way. The key is that if you go to the clinic, for instance, and then go back home, that counts as two one-way trips. There is a deductible that must be met before the whole amount may be awarded, but there is no minimum number of miles to qualify for this claim. There are deductibles to be met and other details which Ill include in next months column. Ill also discuss the partial funeral expense reimbursement. Although Id had it explained to me by VA representatives and I had read it in the printed information brochure provided by the VA that the veterans disability was not a requirement for this, Ive since seen a letter from the VA stating that no reimbursement shall be forthcoming because the veteran in question was not disabled. The letter also states there is no indication of representation by any VA Service Officer, in spite of our local veterans service officer filing the claim for via the computer in his office. Ill be investigating this and will provide an update in my future columns. See you on Sept. 7 at our first yard sale of the season, and Sept. 11 for more on these issues.Barbara L.

Associated PressMIDLOTHIAN, Va. When a stray bullet pierced the top of Brendon Mackeys head, the 7-yearold was on his way to a July Fourth fireworks celebration with his dad and other family members. He died the next day in a Richmond hospital, a bullet lodged at the base of his skull, sparking a methodical, door-to-door search for a most elusive killer: celebratory gunfire. Police believe someone fired a shot into the air within a 5,200-foot radius of Brendon. Witnesses heard a little pop, then Bryan Mackey looked back and saw his sons limp body on the ground, Chesterfield County Police Lt. Randy Horowitz said. Forensic experts at the state crime lab have identified the bullet as a .40caliber class, and the likely weapon has been narrowed to five types of handguns, Horowitz said. Theyve appealed for anyone who fired a gun into the dimming night sky or neighbors who might have witnessed someone doing so to come forward. No one has. To date, investigators have knocked on doors at about half of the 1,800 residences within the likely range of where the shot was fired, with no luck. The area of the canvass includes a dense collection of homes and townhouses, many tucked in woods, and parts around the Swift Creek Reservoir in this fast-growing suburb west of Richmond. Marie Harris, who played the board game Battleship with her son before he headed off to the fireworks, said Brendon was a high-energy boy who loved animals. She described how he was just beginning to take an interest in girls, and had started to tame a cowlick with hair gel. We were waiting for him to bloom, to catch up with the other kids, she said of her slight, thin son. Harris has a simple desire: an apology. That would mean the most, and I would want it to be sincere, she said.Against the oddsBy any reckoning, Brendons death defied mathematical odds. He was among thousands of people headed to the reservoir for a fireworks show and was walking on a winding road under a thick canopy of trees. Of the more than 10,000 U.S. gun deaths annually, there are no comprehensive statistics on how many people are killed by random gunfire, according to an FBI spokesman. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokeswoman said that agency, too, was unaware of any U.S. data on the incidence of stray gunfire, but cited a Puerto Rican report that underscores that a firearm aimed into the skies can return to Earth with enough force to maim and kill. That study found 18 people were injured and one killed during 2004 New Years Eve celebrations in Puerto Rico, based on an analysis by several island agencies. A widely cited study by doctors at a medical center in Los Angeles between 1985 and 1992 identified 118 injuries believed to have come from bullets falling from the sky nationwide.More deathsOn July Fourth, Brendons death was not the only fatality related to random gunfire in the U.S. In Oakland, a 23-year-old man was found shot and died two days later. Four men have been charged. In St. Petersburg, Fla., a 38year-old man was injured by a stray bullet. No one is charged. In the greater Miami area, law enforcement hammers home the message with a No Stray Bullets campaign ahead of July Fourth. A 5-year-old Miami girl died in January 1997 after being hit by a stray bullet. Despite the campaign, a teenager was shot in the head this year during a celebration of the Miami Heats NBA championship win. He survived. Firing weapons into the sky is a global issue and an accepted expression of celebration in parts of the Middle East and Latin America, among other regions of the world. In Phoenix, officials have been aggressive in attempting to curb random gunfire, which police attribute in part to a Latin American population that settled in the area. The problem was driven home in June 1999, when 14-yearold Shannon Smith was killed by a bullet fired into the air more than a mile away. She was struck in the head while talking on the phone in her backyard. Her parents worked with elected officials, and one year later, the careless discharge of a firearm within the city was elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony. Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Smiths killer hasnt been found. You dont know when you shoot a gun where that bullets going to come down, said Thompson, a 30-year police veteran. Some people believe it goes to the moon, it just goes into space. Thompson said the tougher law was just a first step. He said education and reaching out to various communities have been critical. The campaign has been effective, Thompson said. He cites figures that reports of New Years Eve shots have declined from nearly 1,000 in 1998-99 to 271 in 2009-10.Brendons LawIn Virginia, state Sen. Henry L. Marsh III is proposing Brendons Law to stiffen penalties for people who randomly fire guns into the air and for injuries or deaths that result. Marsh attended Brendons funeral and has reached out to his mother. Marsh said the proposed legislation is still being researched. It would make it clear that random, celebratory shooting is a crime, he said. NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 A13 MANAGERS SPECIALS 000FQEK Hwy. 44 W.

Beauty queen faces feloniesSALT LAKE CITY Prosecutors filed charges of bomb possession Friday against a recently crowned Utah beauty pageant winner. Kendra McKenzie Gill was arrested last weekend with three accomplices for what one described as a prank. All four face the same set of four felony charges, prosecutor Blake Nakamura said Friday. The 18-year-olds were arrested Saturday after driving around neighborhoods and allegedly tossing plastic bottles filled with caustic chemicals at people they knew. Nobody was injured. Felony bomb possession is punishable by 1 to 15 years in prison.NTSB: Pilot in crash wasnt certifiedNOXEN, Pa. The pilot of a helicopter that crashed in rural Pennsylvania last month, killing all five people on board, wasnt certified to fly using only on-board instruments, according to federal investigators. A preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Administration also states there was no indication the pilot obtained a weather briefing before taking off July 27 from TriCities Airport in Endicott, N.Y., bound for Jake Arner Memorial Airport in Lehighton shortly before the crash in Wyoming County. The pilot told air traffic controllers in Wilkes-Barre that the helicopter was flying using instruments rather than visual indicators and he asked to be directed to the nearest airport, the report said. A spokeswoman for Robinson Helicopter Co., the Torrance, Calif.-based company that owns the craft, said they believe the helicopter was caught in a thunderstorm.Teen safe; alleged abductor killedCASCADE, Idaho The man suspected of abducting 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and killing her mother and brother was killed in Idaho and the teen is safe, San Diego Sheriff William D. Gore said Saturday. Forty-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed by FBI tactical agents after a campsite was spotted from the air, according to Gore. He said San Diego sheriffs authorities have notified Hannahs father that she was rescued. He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his daughter, Gore said. Plans are being made to reunite the two, probably by Sunday morning, according to Gore.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressThis combination photo shows James Lee DiMaggio, 40, left, and Hannah Anderson, 16. Associated PressBAGHDAD A wave of car bombings targeting those celebrating the end of Ramadan across Iraq killed 69 people Saturday, a bloody reminder of the inability of Iraqi authorities to stop violence threatening to spiral out of control. Violence has been on the rise across Iraq since a deadly crackdown by government forces on a Sunni protest camp in April, and attacks against civilians and security forces notably spiked during Ramadan. The surge of attacks has sparked fears that the country could see a new round of widespread sectarian bloodshed similar to that which brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007. The bloodshed also comes after Iraqi security forces promised to step up efforts to increase security to protect the public during the Eid al-Fitr celebrations that mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. This years Ramadan was the most violence since 2007, with 671 people killed. My shops windows were smashed and smoke filled the whole area, said shoe shop owner Saif Mousa, who survived an attack near his store in New Baghdad. I went outside of the shop and I could hardly see because of the smoke. ... At the end, we had a terrible day that was supposed to be nice because of Eid. Many of the attacks occurred within an hour of each other, suggesting a level of coordination in the assaults. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, though security forces and civilians are frequently targeted by al-Qaidas Iraq branch. Police said the deadliest of Saturdays attacks took place when a suicide bomber drove his explosive-laden car into a residential area in the town of Tuz Khormato, killing eight people and wounding dozens, Mayor Shalal Abdool said. The town is about 130 miles north of the Iraqi capital. The death toll in Saturdays attacks is the highest single-day total since July 20, when 71 people were killed in a series of attacks. More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq in July, the highest monthly death toll in five years, according to the United Nations. Associated PressCars try to navigate their way through New York City on Thursday, Aug. 14, 2003, during a blackout that hit U.S. and Canadian cities. Ten years after the blackout affected 50 million people, utilities and analysts say changes made in the aftermath make a similar outage unlikely today, though shifts in where and how power is generated raise new reliability concerns for the U.S. electric grid system. Wave of bombings in Iraq kills 69 Associated PressSecurity forces and civilians inspect the scene of a car bombing Saturday near a mosque in Kirkuk, 180 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq. Associated PressThe U.S. electrical grid is better managed and more flexible a decade after its largest blackout but remains vulnerable to increasingly extreme weather, cybersecurity threats, and stress caused by shifts in where and how power is produced. Many worry the grid isnt fully prepared for the new and emerging challenges, even though an analysis conducted for The Associated Press shows maintenance spending has steadily increased since North Americas largest blackout. This job of reliability is kind of impossible, in the sense that theres just so many things that could happen that its hard to be sure that youre covering all the bases, said William Booth, a senior electricity adviser with the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The industry has mostly addressed the failures blamed on a tree branch in Ohio that touched a power line and set off outages that cascaded across eight states and parts of Canada the afternoon of Aug. 14, 2003, darkening computer screens, halting commuter trains, and cutting lights and air conditioners for 50 million people. Grid operators who didnt initially realize what was happening now have a nearly real-time view of the system and are better equipped to stop problems from growing. Utilities share more information and systematically trim trees near high-voltage power lines. Electricity customers have been giving the grid a bit of breathing room. Power demand has remained flat or even fallen in recent years as lighting, devices, appliances, homes and businesses have gotten more efficient and economic growth has been sluggish. All that reduces stress on the grid. At the same time, aging coal and nuclear plants are shutting down in the face of higher maintenance costs, pollution restrictions and competition from cheap natural gas. Renewable generation such as wind turbines and solar panels are being installed, adding power thats difficult to plan for and manage. Temperatures and storms are getting more extreme, according to federal data, and that increases stress on the grid by creating spikes in demand or knocking out lines or power plants. Some regulators and policymakers are increasingly worried about cyberattacks that could target systems that manage power plants or grids. The grid that exists today wasnt designed for what everybody wants to do with it, said Joe Welch,CEO of ITC Holdings Corp., the largest independent transmission company in the U.S. The electric power industry did respond directly to the issues that sparked the blackout. An analysis of spending on maintenance and transmission equipment by more than 200 utilities nationwide conducted for the AP by Ventyx, a software and data services firm that works with electric utilities, shows that spending rose sharply in the years after the blackout. Maintenance spending for overhead lines increased an average of 8.2 percent per year from 2003 to 2012. In the period before the blackout, from 1994 to 2003, that spending grew 3 percent on average per year. Most outages residents experience stem not from the bulk system, but from smaller failures in distribution systems managed by local utilities and regulated by states. Not including storm-related outages, the average U.S. customer goes without power 1.2 times annually for a total of 112 minutes, according to PA Consulting Group. Ten years later, grid girded but still vulnerable The U.S. electrical grid is a complex system of power plants, transmission lines and local distribution networks that deliver power to homes and businesses. It comprisesthree major grids Eastern, Western and Texas divided into hundreds of smaller sections. A summary of how power flows on the system and who oversees it:GENERATIONThe roughly 6,000 power plants nationwide use coal, natural gas, nuclear fission, wind or sun to generate electricity.TRANSMISSIONA network of high-voltage power lines delivers large amounts of power over long distances, from power plants to substations in population centers. There are 450,000 miles of transmission lines in the U.S., organized in networks designed to be able to continue to deliver power even if part of the network fails.BULK POWERThe power plants and transmission networks make up the bulk power system. The responsibility for setting standards and tracking the performance of this equipment was given to the North American Electric Reliability Corp. after the blackout, as the result of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Prior to that, NERC promoted reliability through voluntary standards in a system that depended on peer pressure and the interests of various entities in the industry.DISTRIBUTIONThis network of smaller lines and equipment delivers lowvoltage power from substations to customers through overhead lines and underground cables. Failures in this system from weather or other factors are responsible for most of the outages customers experience. Distribution is handled by hundreds of different investorowned utilities, municipal utilities and cooperatives. It is regulated at the state level.Sources: U.S. Department of Energy, American Society of Civil Engineers, Associated Press research

After sufficient food was grown they would bestow the surplus to orphans and widows in a nearby township Rosendal, South Africa. In November 2012, Shannon, a former Citrus Springs Middle School eighth-grade language arts teacher, and Corn, a former Seven Rivers Hospital night nurse, packed their two children and followed their dream to the Eastern Free State of South Africa. We wanted to move back to South Africa for a long time, Shannon said in an email. Corn has an advanced degree in community nursing. She wanted to help where she could with neonatal care, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)awareness and prevention. I was going to look for a way to help in an educational way. Adjusting to culture, climate and continents is what they call home. Corn actually grew up here and the farm we bought is next to the farm she grew up on, Shannon said. Interesting geographic fact we are at the same latitude (just south instead of north) as Brooksville, but we are close to 5 000 ft. Almost no one has an air conditioner around here. Summer highs are in the mid 80s, lows are in the mid 60s. Winters are cold at night between 20 and 35 in the morning, days in low 60s. They have been getting some snow every second or third year lately.Former Citrus County residents open kitchen in AfricaBy Eryn Worthington Staff writer Special to the ChronicleTOP: Corn Stones calling in life was to help nourish children mentally and physically.

Rosendal has three stores which are the size of a large living room and the nearest grocery store is 35 minutes away. When they first arrived in South Africa, they wondered if they made a wise decision. When we first arrived, we had no vehicle. I began wondering what we had done left good jobs, good schools and a comfortable home and lifestyle, Shannon wrote. Less then a week here and some friends felt led to give us a Land Rover Defender.

Veterans & ServiceGROUPS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentHarold Phillips describes himself as a farm boy who grew up in a small town outside Saginaw, Mich.He tried to join the U.S. Air Force when the Korean War started, but the volunteers outnumbered the help at the wars beginning. I didnt want to join the Army, but then a Navy recruiter said hed take me, Phillips said. From 1951 to 1954, Phillips served on the USS Frank E. Evans, a destroyer that cruised just off the Korean coast. During the conflict, the Evans primary mission was providing fire support for U.S. troops. The ship was part of a four-destroyer group that also included the USS Cunningham, USS Blue and USS McKean. Phillips, now 81, was 19 when he joined the Navy, and he had just an eighth-grade education. Still, he climbed the promotion ladder and was a petty officer first class within two years, directing the fire control of the Evans 5-inch batteries. We provided fire support for the Marines and Army most of the time, Phillips said. There was no North Korean Navy to deal with Their fishermen got hell, he said. They didnt come out there. That didnt mean life aboard ship was without its perils. The main problem was mines, Phillips recalled. That was one of the things that scared me the most. There were floating mines and anchored ones. One time our sonar detected that we were right on top of an anchored minefield. We had to stop and back out, and we found out we were right on top of 60 mines. Fire-support missions by the destroyer group meant getting close enough to shore to come under fire from shore batteries. I remember getting up out of my bunk one night and a shell hit the side of the ship right at my bunk, but just dented us, he said. We were turning at the time, and it didnt explode, it just deflected off of us. The dangers werent all man made. In 1953, a typhoon that Phillips said lasted at least a month nearly tore the Evans apart. It was the scariest time I had, he said. It tore open the blowers (air systems) and the 5-inch guns, it caved them in, and it cracked seams into the hull. We had a heckuva time staying afloat. There were something like 80foot waves. Phillips earned three battle stars, awarded when the ship came under enemy fire. Although the North Koreans were well supplied with Sovietbuilt MIG 15 jet fighter planes, Phillips said they never threatened the U.S. Navy ships patrolling the coast. However, the Evans crew watched the air battles in the skies high above. We picked up a lot of pilots who were shot down, Phillips said. I give a lot of credit to those Marines and guys in the Army, he added. Some of those guys really went through hell.

A17SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: Ive always known that my husbands widowed mother runs his life. She picks out his clothes and even decided which house we should buy. I thought after we married Id have a more prominent place in his life. Wrong! Every decision is still made by his mother. He acts as if Im not smart enough. Meanwhile, his mother completely ignores me. She plans holiday gatherings and everything else with no regard for my preferences or schedule. She calls his cellphone constantly. Im seriously thinking about taking our 4-yearold and walking out. Im not sure he would notice. I love my husband, but he doesnt have time for me. Any suggestions? Im ready to explode. Second Best in Michigan Dear Second Best: In order for your husband to put you first, he must be willing to do so, and he will have to simultaneously fend off his mothers objections. You will have to explain why the change is crucial to the health of your marriage and then seek counseling. Dear Annie: Could you ask those people who live in the forests in western states why they build their houses so they will burn down? They must do it on purpose, because they have been doing it over and over for years. You can build a house so it wont burn so easily. Its very simple: Just build it out of steel, masonry, stucco, tile and drywall, all readily available at the local hardware store. Any builder today will know how to do it, and I dont think it would cost much more to build and would surely be a lot less expensive to insure. Retired Architect in Dayton, Ohio Dear Dayton: We have no idea why people build homes with particular materials in places prone to fires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters. We assume it has to do with the cost, the use of natural materials and a specific preference for the aesthetics.

After six or so weeks here, a friend introduced us to Pastor John and Nsoaki, Shannon wrote. He took us to where they were building the church in low socio-economic area where most of the people live in shanty houses (corrugated steel houses). We started talking and that was when we found our visions were so similar. He told us how he wanted to start a soup kitchen for the children in the area not getting enough of a proper diet. Along the same lines, they wanted to have Granny Gardens provide a place and support for the grandmothers that were raising grandchildren to grow their own food. They also wanted to start an English Christian school, and one of the later projects is a safe house for abused children and women. We hit it off right at the start, and visited the church the first Sunday of the year for the first service in their new building (after renting space at the school for 10 years). Shannon said they planned on getting acquainted with South Africa as their new home before reaching out to others. Instead, they became full time missionaries and are apart of the community more than we imagined. Three months ago, the soup kitchen Thsepo Generation which means hope generation opened its doors. The first day one child showed up. However, their belief and prayer for more children was answered as seven children were fed the next day. Today, they are feeding nearly 50 children. The children that we aim to serve come from the home of an unemployed, single parent, and the child is likely not getting proper nutrition, he said. Most of the children are very thin and often small for their age. Corn with her nursing background can see the signs of malnourishment. Before the children eat, the adults lead them in music and devotionals. And then after their meal, they are introduced to physical activity. Someone from the town has donated lots of soccer balls, cones, basketballs, so then they spend some time playing soccer, or the girls netball, with the goal of teaching teamwork and leadership, Shannon said. Shannon and other volunteer are currently in the process of completing the cob house, where he will begin educating the students. At the moment, Pastor John and I are working on getting the school set up for next year (school year starts in January), Shannon wrote. We are going to start with pre-school and kindergarten the first year. Then we will add a couple of grades a year, and will use the ACE system. (Accelerated Christian Education, based in Largo, FL, I believe) The system of ACE where the students work at their own pace, fast or slow, works wonderfully in this kind of situation. When Im done with the house, Id like to start a reading program, he continued. The childrens first language is Sesotho, but most schools switch to English as the medium of instruction from third grade onwards. Weve had some interesting experiences with people that have finished tenth grade but dont understand English. So for them to really be able to move forward educationally, they need to get English down pat.

However, despite what he had learned aboard ship, he still had no high school diploma. That was an obstacle, but for Phillips it was solvable. He earned his diploma after just one year in night school, then enrolled in the engineering school at Lawrence Institute of Technology outside of Detroit, getting his Bachelor of Science degree.

Oak Hill finally had enough elements for a strong test Saturday in the PGA Championship, and Jim Furyk was up for the fight. Grinding to the end in swirling wind that cast doubt on so many shots, Furyk closed with two big putts one for birdie to regain the lead, one for par to keep it that gave him a 2-under 68 and a one-shot lead over Jason Dufner going into the final round. Coming off an 18-foot birdie putt on the 17th, Furyk hit his 3-wood so badly on the 472-yard closing hole that he couldnt have reached the green even if he had been in the fairway. He hit a solid shot over the bunkers and back into the fairway, watched his third shot spin off the green onto the fringe, and he gave an emphatic fist pump Furyk vaults back into lead at PGA Jim Furyk hits out of a bunker on the 11th hole Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y.Associated Press SPORTS BRIEFSEmotional Griffey honored by Seattle MarinersSEATTLE Ken Griffey Jr. became the seventh member of the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame during a lengthy, emotional ceremony. Griffey made a long walk from center field on Saturday night to just in front of home plate for the ceremony that was supposed to last about 30 minutes but went nearly an hour. Griffey received a long standing ovation and most fans in the lower bowl of the stadium stood throughout the entire ceremony. Griffey was brought to tears when his son Trey a football player at Arizona made a surprise appearance with a video message, saying, I cant be more proud of you and the way you did it. Ken Griffey spoke for nearly 25 minutes in a completely unscripted speech.LeBron James gives back to hometown and alma materAKRON, Ohio NBA star LeBron James has kicked off another school year in his hometown of Akron with his foundations second annual I Promise Family Reunion. The LeBron James Family Foundation event has evolved from a bike giveaway to an education initiative that includes nearly 700 students. At his alma mater St. VincentSt. Mary High School on Saturday, James welcomed a new class of third-graders to the program. The students are required to complete a two-week camp over their summer vacation and then they become eligible to for new bike, helmet, a school uniform and backpack tags. James told the crowd that its important for children to know how important they are to the future and that their dreams can become a reality. James also outfitted the high schools fall sports teams with new Nike uniforms and is building a new gymnasium thats scheduled to be completed in the fall. From wire reports Associated PressLOS ANGELES Zack Greinke scattered six hits through 6 1-3 innings, Adrian Gonzalez homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Tampa Bay 5-0 Saturday despite the Rays hidden ball trick. Skip Schumaker added four hits for the NL West leaders. Tampa Bay lost its fourth straight, matching their longest skid this year. Most everything went well for the Dodgers, except when Tampa Bay got tricky. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tagged out an unsuspecting Juan Uribe when he lifted his foot off the bag while chatting with coach Tim Wallach in the fourth inning. The rarely seen play occurred after A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, with all three runners moving up as center fielder Wil Myers threw toward the plate. First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball behind the mound. He flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who then quickly tossed the ball to Longoria while no one seemed to be looking. Longoria stood behind Uribe and waited for the right moment to trap him. Umpire Angel Hernandez was right on the play, watching the whole time, and made the out call. Greinke (10-3) struck out seven and walked one. The 2009 AL Cy Young winner is 6-1 with a 2.49 ERA in his 10 home starts. The Dodgers bullpen finished the job, lowering its ERA since the All-Star break to 1.89. Former Rays left-hander J.P Howell retired both batters he faced in the seventh and rookie Chris Withrow pitched two scoreless innings. Roberto Hernandez (6-12) gave up five runs and eight hits in four innings. Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist tries to throw out the Los Angeles Dodgers Nick Punto at first base during the first inning Saturday in Los Angeles.

Austin Jackson followed a fourhit, three-double night Friday with a homer and triple against the organization that drafted him. Don Kelly had a two-run single after Phil Hughes (4-11) was lifted in a four-run fifth to help the AL Central leaders win for the 17th time in 21 games since the All-Star break.American League Blue Jays 5, Athletics 4TORONTO Josh Reddick hit two home runs, a day after connecting three times for Oakland, but the Toronto Blue Jays got shots from Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes to beat the Athletics 5-4.

It was Reddicks fourth career multihomer game.Red Sox 5, Royals 3KANSAS CITY, Mo.

Mike Trout reached base for a 40th consecutive game.National League Marlins 1, Braves 0ATLANTA The Atlanta Braves 14-winning streak ended with a 1-0 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored the lone run on reliever Jordan Waldens wild pitch in the ninth inning. The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchises longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight. Adeiny Hechavarria led off the Miami ninth with a triple and scored on the wild pitch by Walden (4-2). Marlins starter Nate Eovaldi allowed one hit in seven innings.

Third baseman Jack Hannahan had three of the errors two on off-target throws to first base, another on a grounder that got through him. All San Diego managed off the errors was two unearned runs. Venable hit his team-high 15th homer in the eighth inning off reliever Manny Parra.Nationals 8, Phillies 5WASHINGTON Jayson Werth launched a two-run homer in the seventh inning for his 1,000th career hit, highlighting a five-run rally that sent the Washington Nationals over the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5.

Tyler Clippard surrendered Domonic Browns 26th home run in the eighth and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 29th save.Cubs 6, Cardinals 5ST. LOUIS Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro hit a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to cap a three-run rally and the Chicago Cubs beat the Cardinals 6-5 to win a series in St. Louis for the first time in nearly three years. Matt Holliday homered for twice St. Louis. The Cubs trailed 4-2 entering the eighth, but tied it 4-4 on Darwin Barneys two-out, two-run double by off reliever Trevor Rosenthal (1-3). Navarro followed with his fifth pinch-hit RBI of the season to give Chicago a 5-4 lead.Mets 4, Diamondbacks 1PHOENIX Rookie Wilmer Flores drove in three runs to extend his RBI streak to four games, Zack Wheeler pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the New York Mets beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1. Flores, called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, had a run-scoring single off Brandon McCarthy (2-6) in the fourth inning and a two-run single in the eighth, giving him eight RBIs in his first five games in the majors.

Chris Davis hit his majors-leading 42nd home run for the Orioles leading off the eighth against Santiago Casilla, then grounded out against closer Sergio Romo to end it with a runner on first.

Elvis Andrus added a two-run homer as the Rangers extended their winning streak to a season-high six games.

B4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Serena Williams advances to Toronto final American set to meet Cirstea for Rogers Cup final Associated PressTORONTO Top-seeded Serena Williams advanced to the Rogers Cup final Saturday night, beating third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 7-6 (3), 6-4. The 2001 and 2011 Rogers Cup champion will face Romanias Sorana Cirstea, a 6-1, 7-6 (5) winner over fourth-seeded Li Na of China in the afternoon semifinal. Williams has seven tournament victories this year and 53 overall. In her last event, she won the Swedish Open on July 21. The 27th-ranked Cirstea ousted two former world No. 1s in Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki this week and beat sixth-seeded Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinals. A new day, a new match, Cirstea said. It doesnt matter who I beat the day before or what Ive done. Its just another day where I have to get out there and do the things to show the work that Ive put in. Williams has played Cirstea twice and handily won both meetings. Cirstea won her lone WTA Tour in 2008 at Tashkent. Radwanska and Williams traded breaks twice in the first set, with the Pole keeping up with Williamss imposing power game. Radwanska dashed corner-tocorner at the baseline to make returns and led 6-5, but Williams held serve to force a tiebreaker. In the tiebreaker, Williams blasted a cross-court winner for a 6-3 advantage, then aced set point. Williams called for a medical timeout early in the second set because of gastrointestinal issues. She looked slightly out of sorts early in the set, going down a break and screaming at the ground after blowing an easy overhead smash. But that didnt last. Williams broke back and took a 4-3 lead by running Radwanska around the court with blistering offensive groundstrokes. She won a nearly 10-minute game to pull ahead 5-4 and broke Radwanska to finish off the match in 1 hour, 52 minutes. Associated PressSerena Williams returns the ball Saturday against Agnieszka Radwanska during the semifinal of the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

SportsBRIEFS Giants upend Steelers Associated PressPITTSBURGH Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for a 57yard touchdown pass and the New York Giants beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 18-13 in the preseason opener for both teams Saturday night. Cruz slipped by William Gay and Troy Polamalu, then outran Ryan Clark to score on his first reception since signing a $43 million contract in the offseason. Manning finished 2 of 5 for 73 yards. The Giants scored on both drives the offensive starters were in the game. Ben Roethlisberger completed 4 of 8 passes for 36 yards for Pittsburgh, leading the Steelers to a field goal on their second possession. Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones, the 17th overall pick in the draft, recovered a fumble in his professional debut. Running back LeVeon Bell, the teams second-round pick, did not play due to a sore left knee.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 B5 when his 15-foot par putt curled in the left side of the cup for par. Obviously, I made a bad swing, Furyk said. This week, I havent let too much bother me. It was a nice way to finish the day. Sunday doesnt figure to be any easier not the course, and not with the guys chasing him. Dufner thought he had missed another putt on the 18th hole until gravity pulled the ball into the side of the cup for a par that gave him a 71. Sure, it was eight shots worse than his record-tying 63 on a soft course Friday, but at least he got into the final group at the PGA Championship for the second time in three years. Henrik Stenson, a runner-up at the British Open three weeks ago, dropped only one shot over the last 16 holes and ran in a pair of 12-foot birdie putts for a 69 and was two shots behind. Swedens odds of winning a major have never been this high. Stenson will play in the penultimate group with Jonas Blixt, who had a 66. The surprise was Masters champion Adam Scott, who was poised to seize control at any moment. Scott blasted a driver on the uphill, 318-yard 14th hole that was so pure he snatched his tee from the ground as the ball was still rising. It stopped 25 feet below the cup, and he had an eagle putt to tie for the lead. The Australian twoputted for birdie, and two holes later fell back with a double bogey on the 16th. Scott escaped further damage with a 15-foot par save on the 17th and managed a 72. He was four shots behind, along with Steve Stricker, who had a 70. Those were the only five players within five shots of the lead. Whether more join the chase depends on Furyk, who was at 9-under 201. Still with an outside chance was Rory McIlroy, who came to life with three birdies over his last six holes for a 67. McIlroy, trying to join Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington as the only repeat winners of the PGA in the stroke-play era, knocked in a 40-foot birdie putt on the 17th and then showed more emotion than he has all year when he chipped in for birdie on the 18th. It was good to feel the sort of rush again, McIlroy said. He was at 207, still six shots behind. Woods, meanwhile, will have to wait eight more months to end his drought in the majors. He opened with two bogeys in three holes and shot a 73 to fall 13 shots behind. It was a shocking performance from the worlds No. 1 player, mainly because he was coming off an eightshot win at Firestone that included a 61. Woods has made only seven birdies in 54 holes four of them on par 3s. British Open champion Phil Mickelson was even worse. He sprayed the ball all over Oak Hill on his way to a 78, matching his highest score ever in the PGA Championship. Furyk wasnt overly excited when he opened this championship with a 65 to share the lead with Scott, and he has kept his eyes in front of him since then. He wasnt even sure what the leaderboard looked like, except that his name was at the top. Im comfortable with where Im at, Furyk said. Theres a crowded leaderboard at the top, and instead of really viewing it as who is leading and who is not, Im really viewing it as I need to go out there tomorrow and put together a good, solid round of golf. Fire a good number and hope it stacks up well. No one looked terribly comfortable at the start, not with the swirling wind and water hazard that winds its way along the front nine. U.S. Open champion Justin Rose fell apart early with back-to-back double bogeys that sent him to a 42. He wound up with a 77. Scott opened with a 20-foot birdie putt, only to follow with back-to-back bogeys. And when Dufner ended his string of pars by driving into the creek on No. 5 for double bogey, it appeared that this tournament was wide open. Associated PressJason Dufner watches his tee shot on the fourth hole Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y. PGAContinued from Page B1 A-Rod sits a night after striking out 3 times Yankees player calls fans reaction overwhelming Associated PressNEW YORK Alex Rodriguez had a day off to think about the overwhelming reception he received in his season debut at Yankee Stadium. A-Rod did not play Saturday in the New York Yankees 9-3 loss to Detroit, a game that began about 13 hours after Rodriguez struck out three times in four at-bats during a 10-inning victory over the Tigers. Just a day, its a quick turnaround and hes coming off an injury, manager Joe Girardi said. If we dont have that late night maybe I play him today. Rodriguez left the ballpark Friday night without talking to the media, but he was upbeat and smiling throughout a chat in front of his locker before Saturdays game. The one topic he wouldnt discuss: a report that said he was given a letter by the Yankees stating that they are thinking of fining him for violating the collective bargaining agreement in late July. Citing anonymous sources, ESPNNewYork reported the Yankees could fine him for seeking an unapproved second opinion on his strained quadriceps. He can also be penalized for failing to show up for work July 12 after meeting with Major League baseball officials conducting the investigation into Biogenesis, the now-closed Florida anti-aging clinic. Maybe they sent it to my lawyers, but Im not really going to talk about that, Rodriguez said. A call to general manager Brian Cashman on Saturday was not returned. Coming off January hip surgery, Rodriguez played his first game in New York since a horrendous postseason and since appealing the 211-game doping suspension he was given last week. He received a mix of cheers and boos throughout the pregame and a good number of fans stood and applauded during his first at-bat against Detroits Rick Porcello. But any good vibes quickly turned to jeers when he struck out. I was having a hard time keeping my emotions in check, Rodriguez said of the welcome. So much better than I even dreamed of. I just felt the love walking around the city. What people are screaming, pretty incredible. This city is the greatest city in the world. Rodriguez was booed throughout his first three games of the season in Chicago. And he expects to hear plenty for the rest of the year. For the last 14 years theres always been a mix. Do you ever get 100 percent of anything? Rodriguez asked. Associated PressNew York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez fields balls during batting practice Friday before a game against the Detroit Tigers. Driver posts lap of 128.241 mph at Watkins Glen Associated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. When rain cut short Sprint Cup practice at Watkins Glen International and he struggled to find balance in his car, Marcos Ambrose blasted his team in the garage. I did lose my cool, Ambrose said. I didnt feel like we made enough progress for the race and for qualifying. I just didnt think it was feeling right. I just didnt quite feel like we were good enough. He is now. Ambrose shattered the Cup track record on Saturday to win the pole for the Cheez-It 355 on Sunday, turning a fast lap of 128.241 mph in the No. 9 Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports to easily eclipse the mark of 127.020 set a year ago by Juan Pablo Montoya. It was the 12th track record set this year in qualifying for the new Gen-6 car. For Ambrose, it was his third career pole and first at The Glen as he seeks his third straight victory at the historic road course in upstate New York. Its a very special moment for me. They did a good job to calm me down and not overreact to what I was saying, and it worked out really well, Ambrose said of his crew. We were catching up all day yesterday. This has not been the best qualifying track for me, Ambrose said. Im proud of today. Getting the pole was awesome. The car felt great. I think that bodes really well for tomorrow. If we can keep this form down, I think that our car will be good for the race, and when you have track position, thats going to help us a lot. Clint Bowyer qualified second and Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. was third, followed by AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch. Max Papis, subbing for the injured Tony Stewart in the No. 14, qualified 29th. Stewart, who has a Cup-record five wins at Watkins Glen, is sidelined with a broken right leg suffered Monday in a sprint car race in Iowa. Reigning Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, in the hunt for a berth in the Chase for the championship, will start eighth, while chase contender Kurt Busch qualified 13th. Hendrick Motorsports struggled as Jimmie Johnson was 18th, Kasey Kahne 19th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 25th and Jeff Gordon 28th. Ambrose won the past two races at Watkins Glen with some good fortune, besting Keselowski and Kyle Busch twice in a pair of stunning finishes. He started fifth in 2011 behind Kyle Busch, who won the pole, and was third off the grid last year behind pole-winner Montoya. It just helps our situation, Ambrose said. The last two years Ive come back through the field. Weve had luck on our side. I was doing it the hard way. This year, if you have a good day, you can be in control longer. Were very focused on staying in front. Nationwide race goes to Keselowski Associated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. Brad Keselowski has always had a fondness for Watkins Glen International, and that fondness just grew a bit more. The reigning Sprint Cup champion, who had finished second three times in the past two years at The Glen, led 49 laps in the Nationwide Zippo 200 and finally notched that elusive first career road course victory Saturday. I dont know, its hard to explain. I can remember coming here with my dad (in the 1990s), just always having a love affair with this track, said Keselowski, runner-up to Marcos Ambrose in the past two Cup races at the track. Theres something about this track. I have a very deep appreciation for it. Its been a great race track for me. Keselowski passed Joey Logano for the lead with 16 laps to go, then held off Sam Hornish Jr. in a dominant performance for Penske Racing. Keselowski, who finished second to Carl Edwards despite leading more than half of this race a year ago, won for the fourth straight time over five months in NASCARs secondtier series. It was his 24th career Nationwide win, tying him with Tommy Houston for eighth place on the career list. Brian Vickers was third, followed by Regan Smith and Elliott Sadler. Logano finished 21st after running out of gas on the final lap, his teams fuel strategy backfiring. Hornish won the pole and set sail with Keselowski at the outset after Kyle Busch crashed on the first turn of the 82-lap race. Kyle getting torn up, it was pretty apparent that all three of our cars had a shot to win the race if we just didnt do something dumb, Keselowski said. So I tried to not do something dumb the whole race. Busch wasnt so fortunate. He started second but lost control of his No. 54 Toyota. Associated PressMarcos Ambrose celebrates in the pits after qualifying on the pole Saturday for todays Sprint Cup race in Watkins Glen, N.Y. Ambrose took the pole with 128.241 miles per hour.

B6SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Ray Lewis III following dads path at Miami Associated PressCORAL GABLES For Miami freshman Ray Lewis III, there is no escaping his fathers shadow. The kid doesnt mind that reality, either. Ray Lewis name and image are on the fence that surrounds the Hurricanes practice field. His words are displayed along one of the walls of the teams new locker room. His resume two-time Super Bowl winner, 13-time Pro Bowler, quite possibly the greatest inspirational-speech-giver of all time is known by just about anyone who follows football. Now his son is getting into the family business. Lewis III decided to follow his fathers college path and enroll at Miami, where hes learning how to play defensive back and isnt even listed on the teams most recent depth chart. But there will be plenty of intrigue in how he develops with the Hurricanes, more because of his surname than anything else though he insists that its not a burden to carry his fathers name around. If I let it, I feel like it could, Lewis III said Friday at the teams media day. But my mom did a great job raising me and I feel like she never let that get to me, either. I already know theres going to be expectations. I know people are going to expect a lot. People are going to think a lot. People are going to make assumptions before they even get to know me. But like I said, if I let that get to me, I wouldnt be playing. Theres no shortage of current Miami players with family trees that have deep, longstanding Hurricane roots. Defensive end Anthony Chickillo is a third-generation Hurricane, and his cousin Wyatt Chickillo is a freshman on this years team. Freshman quarterback Kevin Olsen is the brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who starred at Miami. Wide receiver Greg Golden, another freshman, is the nephew of Hurricanes head coach Al Golden and the son of Greg Golden Sr., a Miami walk-on during the Howard Schnellenberger era. Its my dream school, Greg Golden said. So for many Hurricanes, this season will be a family affair. And for Lewis III, it might be particularly special now that hes at his mothers alma mater and that his father who retired after last season will have more time than ever to see him play. Ray Lewis was around the Hurricanes at times during the summer, when they were going through 7on-7 drills to get ready for training camp, and his son said he savored the experience of having his dad around his new team. The one thing I can tell you about Ray-Ray is he is a learner, Al Golden said. He is a learner. He is a football kid, he really is. I mean, everything you teach him, he learns and he improves. Now, hes got a long way to go because he doesnt have the number of reps over his whole career playing that position and the comfort level, but hes a learner and just a guy who figures things out. Ray Lewis has talked several times in recent months about the symmetry of it all, how his last game Baltimores win in the Super Bowl over San Francisco came in the same week that his son signed with Miami. Everybody knows my dad is an NFL icon, said Lewis III, who was a running back during his high school days at Lake Mary Prep near Orlando, collecting nearly 1,900 yards as a senior there. Hes an NFL Hall of Famer. Hes done great over his lifetime. Associated PressRay Lewis III is the son of retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who also attended Miami. Lewis III said its more of a blessing than a burden to follow in his fathers footsteps. Jags tiff no big deal Blackmon, Babin argue on sidelines Friday Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley had receiver Justin Blackmon and defensive end Jason Babin in his office Saturday morning, hours after the two got into it on the sideline during the teams preseason opener. Bradley was pleased with what he heard, too. Im not going to say that there was (nothing) between Justin and Jason Babin, but it was more like, Just back up when Gus is telling you to back up, Bradley said. Its one of those things, and it probably appeared bigger. ... But it was a lot smaller than what I initially thought. It started when Blackmon, sitting out because of a groin injury, began jawing with Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll in the second quarter. The Jaguars were upset with a tackle and made it known to Carroll. Blackmon was the closest and most vocal of the bunch, escalating the tiff to the point where Bradley took notice. Thats when veteran defensive end Jason Babin stepped in, apparently telling Blackmon to calm down, which drew a reaction from his teammate. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew eventually calmed Blackmon down and escorted him to the locker room. Were handing it inside the building and trying to move on, Jones-Drew said. Blackmon, meanwhile, skipped the teams open media session Saturday. Babin downplayed the spat, even reacting to questions as if he was unaware anything happened. Just an emotional game, he said. Its how its done, you know? Its football. Whatever happens Sunday, happens Sunday, and thats it. Getting to the QB Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a better pass rush, and according to coach Greg Schiano, that means they need a better DaQuan Bowers. Schiano has been on his thirdyear defensive end during practices and after all summer long. Its certainly not anything personal. We both want the same thing, Schiano said Saturday. He wants to be an every-down player and we need an everydown defensive end, so were just trying to get there. Bowers was the only Bucs regular to play the entire first half Thursday night in a 44-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason opener. His performance drew mixed reviews from Schiano. I felt like I needed it, Bowers said. Im an unproven defensive end in this league. I felt like I needed the extra work. I talked to coach about it. He agreed, I agreed, so we came up with a plan. Even after investing premium picks on three defensive linemen, including Bowers, in the 2010 and 2011 drafts, the Bucs have ranked among the bottom teams in the NFL in sacks every year. Last year, they had the worst pass defense in the league (379.9 yards per game) while recording only 27 sacks. That was one of our issues, Schiano said. We havent had that yet, with a four-man front or a three-man front getting to the quarterback consistently. Until we do it, there needs to be concern. The 6-foot-4, 288-pound Bowers, a second-round pick in 2011, has 4 1/2 sacks in 26 games. Staying on the field as a full-time player might be the solution to that lack of production. I think its a lot harder than the average person thinks, said Bowers, whose career has been slowed by Achilles and knee surgeries. I think coach Schiano said it best: when youre a starting pitcher you have a lot more pitches than a closer, so you know you just have to get ready to go. You have to bring your A game and be prepared. Im a firm believer that theres no missed opportunities in this league. If I dont take advantage of it, then somebody on the street will. Schiano intends to make sure Bowers taps his potential. DaQuan has what we refer to as heavy hands, Schiano said. Hes strong so when he puts his hands on you, you feel it. When he plays with good pad level and does that, hes a force, but when he doesnt, hes not a force. I think its just practicing being a consistent player. Coach is a straightforward guy and I respect him, said Bowers. He said he wanted more out of me, so its my job to come out here and give him more, give him all that I have until I dont have any more.NotesFormer Bucs receiver Keyshawn Johnson was in camp to do an ESPN interview with cornerback Darrelle Revis. In the season opener Sept. 8, Revis will be in a situation similar to the one Johnson was in 2000, when he faced his former team, the New York Jets, in a September game. It was the same story two picks, blah-blah-blah, bunch of money, the hype, so well put it in the can and use it for Week 1, Johnson said. That way I wont have to come down here and fight the media that week to get an interview from him. . Guard Carl Nicks, who missed most of last season with a toe injury, has been working with the first team in practice, but no decision was announced on whether he will play at New England. . The Bucs will practice against the Patriots on Tuesday and Wednesday in New England before playing Friday night. . .The Bucs signed safety Troy Nolan.

Buccaneers coach Schiano pushing defensive end Bowers to provide pass rush Associated PressJacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon catches balls during warmups before an NFL preseason game Friday against the Miami Dolphins in Jacksonville. Blackmon sat out the game because of a groin injury. Clowney out, QB Shaw off target in SC scrimmage Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina All-America defensive end Jadeveon Clowney sat out Saturdays scrimmage because of a sore shoulder, while Gamecocks quarterback Connor Shaw was off target in his first action since an offseason foot surgery. Still, Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier thought it was a solid showing his offense in the 90minute session at Williams-Brice Stadium. Overall, I would say the offense played a little bit better today, Spurrier said. Some of the second (team) offensive linemen showed some improvement, so that was encouraging. Its hard for Gamecock fans to be hopeful when they see Clowney in street clothes instead of his fearsome No. 7 uniform. Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said theres nothing to worry about. Ward said Clowneys condition wasnt serious and the defensive lineman wasnt expected to play much anyway as coaches got a look at South Carolinas younger defenders. I guess he bruised it, but its fine, Ward said. We werent going to play him anyway. Count on the Gamecocks to protect their defensive leader throughout fall camp as the team prepares for its opener against North Carolina on Aug. 29. Clowney is the reigning Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year and finished sixth in Heisman Trophy balloting. He had 13 sacks and a school-record 23 1/2 tackles for loss last fall. What Ward needed to see was his young linebackers the Gamecocks lost five seniors from one of the most solid groups on the 2012 defense. In addition, one of the expected starters for this year in Cedrick Cooper has been out with dislocated left elbow. Linebacker T.J. Holloman led the way with an interception of Shaw early in the scrimmage. I think theyre doing some good things, but again, theyre not there yet, Ward said. Neither, apparently, is Shaw, who was 3 of 10 passing with an interception. South Carolinas senior holds the schools best winning percentage at 17-3 as a starter. But he hadnt seen any live action since coming out in the final minute of South Carolinas 33-28 Outback Bowl victory over Michigan. While that game will be most remembered for Clowneys helmetpopping hit on Wolverines running back Vincent Smith, it was Shaws backup, Dylan Thompson, who came and delivered the game-winning, 32-yard touchdown throw to receiver Bruce Ellington with 11 seconds left. Thompson also passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns as the Gamecocks won at Clemson, 27-17, with Shaw sidelined because of injury. Spurrier has flatly stated several times this summer that Shaws the starter, although, he would try and work Thompson into the mix. Thompson led the Gamecocks on two touchdown drives during the scrimmage. He finished 5 of 7 with 74 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown. Spurrier said Shaws back was a bit sore after more than a week of practice.

OK, forget about that last item, but the rest of the news in Citrus County has been pretty dismal lately. Our local economy has been knocked down, our taxpayers are facing large tax increases for the first time in decades, and our largest retail center and our county hospital are on the critical-care list. I, by the power vested in me as publisher of this newspaper, hereby place a moratorium on really bad news for the rest of the year. Lets collectively cut this negative stuff out. Here are the headlines that I officially approve of for the second half of the year:Duke announces plans to build new gas plant in Citrus County; 400 new construction jobs will be created.Hospital compromise reached and new owner is approved.

See WINDOW/ Page C3 Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Build it and they will come Iwould like to share my positive thoughts and ideas for the proposed intersection of the Suncoast Parkway 2 and County Road 495. The five areas I would like to highlight are economic development, community redevelopment, ecotourism, quality-of-life issues and land-use community standards for Parkway intersections.ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENTWhat would happen if an interchange is not established at Suncoast Parkway 2 and County Road 495? With only three current proposed interchanges of local and state roadways, northand southbound traffic would bypass the city of Crystal River, its businesses and community. With the closing of Progress Energy/Dukes nuclear power plant and the impending closing and demolition of the coal-fired plants, the interchange should be viewed as an economic stimulus for the city of Crystal River. The proposed interchange would bring a new vitality and sustainability that does not currently exist.COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENTThe city of Crystal Rivers Community Redevelopment Agency is rapidly approaching its sunset after 30 years of existence. A Suncoast Parkway 2 interchange with County Road 495 will bring a new set of guests, visitors, customers and possible residents to Crystal Rivers business community. It would be an economic trigger that would give Crystal River property owners the confidence to invest in upgrading their commercial properties and businesses. This unique community transportation investment by the state would create a new, very positive business climate for future investment, creating new jobs, enhanced commerce and a stabilized tax base.TOURISMThe proposed interchange would be a new conduit linking guests and visitors to Crystal Rivers ecotourismrelated venues.

Local residents unhappy with the flow rate set for the river by the Southwest Florida Water Management District will be challenging the rate at a hearing at the districts Brooksville headquarters.The meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 10 at 2379 Broad St. Our waters: Destroyed in the name of the law Preoccupied as we are all with keeping up with the myriad chores of modern life, many have not noticed that Floridas water policies and laws have failed to a large degree. Our planet is about 75 percent covered by water. Of this vast quantity of water, only 1 percent to 2 percent is fresh water, and with few exceptions, only those portions found in the aquifer are of sufficient quality so as to be potable without treatment. We are wholly dependent upon a resource that can be preserved and maintained, but under the cover of law, in Florida, it often is not. Wateris our lifeblood. We depend upon it each and every day of our existence. Our surface waters are transporta tion conduits and powerful economic engines. We use the water in our aquifer for residential water supply, irrigation, agriculture and industrial applications with hardly a second thought. We are past the point where a second thought is glaringly necessary. Florida promotes development as an economic enterprise. Development is defined by Florida Statute 380 as the carrying out of any building activity or mining operation, the making of any material change in the use or appearance of any structure or land, or the dividing of land into three or more parcels. Such activities are dependent upon water, and 80 percent of Floridas water supply currently comes from our aquifer. We are already using aquifer water faster than it is being replenished. We have allowed our freshwater aquifer to become contaminated with salt water, nitrates Principles for planning the countys future There will be a hearing before the Florida Department of Environmental Protection secretary at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the SWFWMD headquarters in Brooksville, at 2379 Broad St., because local residents and organizations are challenging ineffective water management policy.

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 11, 2013 Dont stop flow of nutritious foodsEarlier this month the U.S. House of Representatives, on a party-line vote, broke with tradition by stripping from the farm bill the Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps). Whats left in the bill is billions of dollars of subsidies mostly for farming conglomerates. The U.S. Senate passed a much more balanced bill last month. Over the past 18 years, our government has doled out an average of $7 billion per year of taxpayer funds to support the livestock and dairy industries. Instead, their products should be taxed to reimburse state and federal governments for the uncounted billions in increased medical costs and lost productivity associated with their consumption. Conversely, a sound national nutrition program based on vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fruits and nuts can save additional billions in reduced social costs. I am all in favor of reducing our national deficit, government waste and medical costs. But thats not going to happen by taking nutritious food from the mouths of 47 million of our societys least privileged members.Cecil Casterelli Crystal River EDNAMATTOSRe: Technological imperative, guest column, Aug. 4, by Rep. Jimmie T. Smith .Rep. Jimmie Smith pushes the technological component of Common Core State Standards Initiatives (CCSS), which targets language arts, English and math. CCSS should be understood by every parent, teacher and taxpayer. Floridas government agreed to enact these standards before they were even written in order to receive grant money from the federal governments Race to the Top Fund (RTTT). CCSS is not a state initiative, nor were these standards developed by any state legislator, educator or expert. These standards were developed by two special interests consortia National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Officers both heavily funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Gates Foundation. In 2004, Bill Gates signed an agreement with the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to develop and promote international strategic partnerships. It seeks to use information and communication technologies (ICTs) to accelerate social and economic development acting through the collaboration of a range of stakeholders. These priorities include education and learning in the area of mainstreaming ICT into socio-economic development programmes. These standards are the first top-down, federally driven nationalized educational standards in our history. All children will be on the same playing field a one-size-fitsall approach within a state and from state to state and, ultimately, country to country. However, there are no international benchmarks to compare. Florida legislators do not know what the outcome will be. These standards have not been tested. This is not a collegeand career-preparedness curriculum, and Floridas students are being used as lab rats to further globalization and to enrich those heavily involved in its creation and implementation. Under the CCSS, local school boards will only have 15 percent jurisdiction over curricula and standards. The testing will go on for weeks instead of days. The stress factor for students will be double that of FCAT. Parents will lose complete authority over their childrens educational needs. Instead, authority will go to the federal government or any group/ agency they wish to appoint. Five out of the 29 validation committee members (including the only two educational experts on the committee) refused to sign off on CCSS because they consider CCSS to be inferior in standards and in content; and because there is no evidence that the standards are of any benefit. The road Rep. Smith is paving will take students to a place where elementary grade testing will determine their education curriculum. The state will determine career needs, the alternative career path a student should take, and who can go to college and become a professional. Russia adopted vocational and technical education with relatively decent results at first. It covered enormous specializations to better serve employers. The relevance was artificial because it was established within a central economic planning and centralized job placement. Russia pushed students to have job-specific skills before entering the workforce, assuming students would enter predictable careers requiring predictable knowledge in predictable technologies. Vocational training across the board became predictable. Their out -of-control predictability did not correlate with market demands and changes, and this created a huge imbalance. The vocational system was affected by the economy and the shift in employer needs. The government assumed responsibility for subsidizing food and teachers salaries. Twenty-plus years later, the countrys vocational and technical education model is still undergoing changes. In the 1970s, Chicago experimented with a similar program of outcome-based education called mastery learning (ML), headed by professor Benjamin Bloom. ML was a huge failure and ended in disgrace in 1982. It increased the illiteracy rate, and it was blamed for extremely low test scores. This turned into a national scandal of incompetency and disgrace for poorly planned and tested education experiments. The nearly $16 billion in additional costs is nearly four times the federal governments RTTT grant awards. State and local taxpayers will foot 90 percent of the bill for K-12. The federal governments push to get states to adopt national standards and tests amounts to one big unfunded mandate. And the huge technological component costs have not been completely determined because its a moving target. There are constitutional issues that will be challenged in court. Only states have the right to direct education. The General Educational Provisions Act (GEPA) states: No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system. Under GEPA law, and the Ninth and 10th Amendments, we have the right as a state to determine educational programs. CCSS will open the door for more state charter schools, similar to the thousands of learning institutions created in Russia. Its imperative we have a much broader discussion on what the purpose of our education system is and what its future will look like for our students, as Smith writes. But first, it should not enrich proponents of alternative education, nor should it be sold to the highest bidder and international foreign interests. This discussion must include parents, educators and experts, and not be controlled by government elitists, special and/or foreign interests. Education must be kept out of the hands of the federal government and private self-serving groups at the state and national levels.

The immediate local fallout is that there will not be the 2,000 or more good-paying construction jobs, and there will not be the several hundred wellpaid jobs for permanent plant staffing. The long-term consequence is that with the shuttering of the Crystal River nuclear plant (CR3) and the planned closing of two of the four coal plants at the Crystal River site, Duke will become even more reliant on natural gas as the fuel for the generation of electricity. According to reports filed with the state Public Service Commission, the company expects to produce almost three-fourths of its electric power from gas within the next decade. Natural gas is currently cheap, and natural gas power plants are much cheaper to build than nuclear plants, so this is a good strategy for a company focused on quarterly or annual earnings, and the strategy could benefit customers if gas remains cheap. However, the history of the first two units at the Crystal River energy complex gives us one example of how dangerous it is to make assumptions about the future price of fuel for generating plants. Units 1 and 2 were initially built as coal-burning units in the 1960s, but shortly after their construction they were converted to burn oil, which was then cheaper than coal. But following the 1973 oil embargo, the price of oil soared and the units were converted back to coal, which was then cheaper than oil. And like the price of oil, the price of natural gas can fluctuate dramatically. During the past decade, the wholesale price of natural gas has varied from a little over $4 per thousand cubic feet to more than $12 per thousand cubic feet. This price volatility matters because a power plant is a long-term investment 60 years or more for a coal or nuclear plant and about half that for a natural gas plant. Changes in the price of fuel can make what is cheap today expensive tomorrow. Today, natural gas is cheap, primarily due to a recovery technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. But this is a controversial method. Should there be restrictions on this recovery method, or should the government impose a carbon tax to reduce greenhouse emissions, the price of natural gas could jump substantially. Nuclear fuel, on the other hand, is both relatively cheap and the price is more stable than that of oil or gas. A nuclear plant would act as a hedge against increases in the price of gas, but a nuclear plant takes years to license and build. Dukes decision on the Levy County plant takes this option off the table for many years into the future. Although the company says it will still seek a license for the Levy County plant and could revive the project, the decision to cancel the engineering contract makes eventual construction even more unlikely, and certainly much further into the future. Building nothing but naturalgas generating capacity makes short-term economic sense for the company and its shareholders. What it means for customers over the long term is unclear and potentially risky, because the cost of fuel used to generate electricity is passed directly to customers. We can hope low natural gas prices will persist without disruptions in the supply, because Duke has left itself few options and little wiggle room should gas prices soar or supplies be interrupted.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 C3 If all goes according to schedule, this column will appear on Aug. 11, but, today, as it is being written, is Aug. 1. It is my birthday my 68th birthday. Ive always enjoyed my birthdays. So far, this one has been no exception. My Cheryl has a small, family birthday dinner planned for us this evening at one of the local restaurants. But, already, sheand I have watched an old movie a classic, The Maltese Falcon together. Im sure wed seen it before, but thats one of the advantages of getting older: You forget the details about such things and have no problem at all enjoying em again. Also, my monthly toe appointment was today, and my pedicurist, Patty, presented me with a cupcake, candle and all. One of the main things I enjoy about my birthday is that it causes me to reflect on earlier times and the people who have been a part of my life as it has progressed. Of course, no other person even comes close to ever being as important in my world as Cheryl, but I had 20 birthdays before she and I became us. Up until then, it was my boyhood family, and my mother was the kingpin, but there were also the townspeople of Lacoochee. Our house was at the north end of a small business district that spanned no more than 100 yards. Things were different then, and by the time I was 5 years old, my mother felt no fear about sending me alone to the stores to fetch whatever needed fetching. I knew all of the storekeepers, including the postmistress and the justice of the peace. I knew them, they knew me and Mama knew their watchful eyes were an assurance of my well-being. At that stage in my life, my nickname was Button, and thats what virtually everyone in town called me. But, as time passed, my mother thought the nickname had run its course. When I started to school, she asked everyone to please begin calling me by my given name, Fred not Button, not Freddy, not Junior, but Fred. Most folks cooperated, but a few did not. One of those who refused to honor her request was the local justice of the peace, Gregg OBerry. His nickname was Judge. He seemed to like his nickname, and I suppose he thought I liked mine, so to him, I remained Button. Even after I started working at the bank, Judge OBerry continued to call me Button. When he would come into the bank and one of the other tellers would ask, May I help you? he would always politely decline by saying, No, thank you. Ill wait for Button. Another was my mothers sister, Dot. When Cheryl and I moved to Orlando in 1969, my contact with Judge OBerry became very infrequent; and, of course, he died many years ago. But Aunt Dot continued to call me Button on a regular basis until she passed in December 2011 at the age of 93. Yes, birthdays bring memories; and, on this one, at least for a moment, with a just a tiny twinge of nostalgic melancholy, I am fondly remembering my being a boy called Button.Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist.

The Central Florida Water Initiative is currently attempting to identify possible water sources to supply the areas future needs through 2035. Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) Director of Resource Management Mark Hammond was recently quoted in the Orlando Sentinelsaying Our preliminary finding is that traditional groundwater sources can meet some, but not all projected needs. The year 2035 is fewer than 22 years away, less time than it will take to develop alternative supply sources. Until then, we will keep pumping ground water at a furious pace, thus continuing the slide which puts us deeper in the quagmire of impaired waters. Be they springs, lakes or an estuary, much of our economy is dependent on maintaining their health. All Citrus County coastal river systems are predominately spring-fed, and all are designated as Outstanding Florida Waters. All are also now on the EPA Impaired Waters List. Removing that smudge from waters which contribute nearly $100 million per year to Citrus Countys economy will be expensive, but it must be done. It is reasonable to defend these waters if only for the economic contribution to our lives and future generations. The foolishness must stop. Heres the message: Your children will carry the burden of decisions and water policies administered today, and tomorrow, by the state of Florida. Your failure to recognize and react to policies which threaten the well-being of your offspring renders you complicit in the condemnation of their future. Though the threat is more subtle than an invasion, its magnitude is no less. What can you do? Well, get involved and argue in defense of your water so that it will be a legacy and not a liability. Join other concerned citizens and make your voice be heard. SWFWMD sets minimum flows and levels (MFLs) standards by formulating rules in Florida Administrative Code. In setting MFLs for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers, SWFWMD determined tripling the current level of flow reduction is acceptable despite current use and resultant pollutant contributions, which have led to their status as impaired waters. This rationale was supported by deferring Clean Water Act requirements from the rule development analysis to permitting review at a later date. The merit of that policy is worthy of challenge due to its manifest failure to protect our waters. There will be a hearing before the secretary of the state Department of Environmental Protection at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the SWFWMD headquarters in Brooksville because local residents and organizations are challenging ineffective water management policy. You are invited to attend the hearing and lend your support for our most valuable resource. Public input will be heard beginning at approximately 2 p.m. Dan Hilliard a director with Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., which was organized in 1984 in response to quality of life threats posed by activities that have a high potential to degrade groundwater and surface water quality. Sisters Springs Park. The Suncoast Parkway 2 interchange this close to the City of Crystal River is a vital link to our ecotourism experiences, as it will bring visitors from both north and south. Our local hospitality industry, bars, restaurants, shops and businesses will enjoy an enhanced customer base.QUALITY-OF-LIFEISSUESMy proposed Citrus County Trail Network Project is currently in the comment phase of its development. It includes a vital connection point to the city of Crystal River through the extension of the existing Crosstown Trail northward from the Old Train Depot to the Suncoast Parkway 2. This connectivity feature was first unveiled in the countys Supplemental Information for Partnership Progress dated Feb. 12, 2013. A major trailhead with associated amenities and vehicle parking are also proposed for that location. This proposed trail extension would connect the city of Crystal River to the Gulf of Mexico via the W ithlacoochee Bay Trail, Citrus Countys Central Ridge planned service area and all locations southward to Tampa along the Parkways existing trail system. The final version of the Trail Network Project will be installed in the countys Comprehensive Land Use Plan for future funding by the Parkway Authority, the state of Florida, the state Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Transportation. The proposed interchange should be viewed as a connection point to the Parkways motorized and nonmotorized features for inbound and outbound movement in both north and south directions.LAND-USECOMMUNITYSTANDARDS FORPARKWAYINTERSECTIONSThe Citrus County Comprehensive Land Use Plan provides strict development standards for local roadway connections to the Suncoast Parkway 2 extension through our county. These Interchange Management Areas (IMAs) provide:Modern development to our community standards;The promotion of aesthetically pleasing development;Recognition of the importance of the interchange areas as gateways to our community;Protection of the integrity and safety of the roadways through acceptable access management practices. More than seven years ago, the Board of County Commissioners desired to make sure Citrus Countys interchanges with Suncoast Parkway 2 do not look like the intersection of Interstate 75 with State Road 44 at Wildwood. The Interchange Management Areas are the assurance that proposed development in those corridors would be controlled and managed by the countys Comprehensive Land Use Plan. As the District 1 Commissioner since 2004, I have always voted in favor of the Suncoast Parkway 2 extension through Citrus County. I fully support and endorse the Parkway project with an interchange at County Road 495. I respectfully ask you to join me with your support of this worthwhile transportation project.Dennis Damato is the Citrus County commissioner for District 1, which includes Crystal River. DAMATOContinued from Page C1 WINDOWContinued from Page C1 WATERSContinued from Page C1 Hot Corner:BRAD THORPE Could have predicted itIn May when our county administrator announced his retirement, it kind of surprised me a little bit, but I didnt think much about it. The more I thought about it, the first part of June I started telling my neighbors, You watch, that guys going to pull the same thing the sheriff did. Hell retire and then hell unretire. In the meantime, our administrators driven half our county staff away. I cant envision working for that man now with the staff that would be left there. There certainly cant be too much goodwill feelings.For how long?Hey, I thought Thorpe was really interested in retiring and being with his family time and all that kind of stuff, doing all this private stuff. Hell stick around here as long as the county needs him. How long you think the countys going to need him? Well, theyre going to need him til they can assign a port authority leader and then theyre going to make him the port authority person.Here we go againThe Chronicles headline today (that) Thorpe may not retire, its certainly no surprise. The rumors been around for weeks that commissioners ... were going to ask him to stay and not look at the applicants that were applying. Here we go again. Same old, same old.Wish you wellNo thanks, Brad. We dont really want you to come back as the county administrator. We wish you well in your retirement and hopefully well get new blood that will learn to cut spending, balance budgets and be all-around honest and truthful to the citizens and improve our county the way the elderly would love to have it.Time to move onI would just like to say ... Jeff Dawsy and our man there, Thorpe they both said they were going to retire and get out of politics and out of the county. And what did they do? They reneged themselves. They need to get on with their lives. Off they goBrad Thorpe wants to stay and Meek agrees. In my opinion, both of them should go.Stick to resignationReading the edition of the Aug. 7 Chronicle, the incompetent commissioners are at it again. They think Thorpe is the only capable politician to run this county. Why should he stay when he already resigned? There are 28 applicants in the wings. The commissioners missed the boat several years ago when they had a county administrator who was known nationally and would have got the county on the right track. They badgered him until he left. Why do they want to pander to Thorpe when he and the commissionershave run this county into the ground? Meeks says Thorpe can stay if it works for his personal situation. Meek should want someone who works for the citizens of the county, not the personal wants of Thorpe. Thorpe says he will stabilize the county. What has he been doing since were in such a disaster? How can he stabilize us? Give me a break. Been on the rumor millI just read the article today in the paper regarding Brad Thorpe offering to remain as county administrator. This topic has been circulating around the county for the past couple of weeks. It seems as if none of the county commissioners want to review the 28 candidates and would rather keep Thorpe in his position. Whats this all about?Would miss the salaryWell, I see Brad Thorpe is pulling a flip-flop just like Sheriff Dawsy. Im going to retire, but then they dont retire. All those huge salaries and benefits start looking pretty good when you leave, plus all the power.No money for budgetThe taxpayers did not ask for bloated government. How in the world can Mr. Thorpe present a budget with millions of dollars not there to fund the budget? Theres no money. Mr. Thorpe was part of the problem as a commissioner and an administrator. Sound OFF Dogs have their placeI just want to say that I am a dog lover, but I think theres a time and place for dogs. I was just in Walmart yesterday and some woman walks in and is walking around the store and comes in to Dunkin Donuts with a dog that is not a service dog. I think that only service dogs, such as seeing-eye dogs and service dogs, should be allowed in any store or restaurant. Please keep your dog at home, people. They have food in these areas. I wonder what the health department would say if somebody called them.Mall suggestionsAbout the (Crystal River) Mall: Why not a Sams or a Costco? That would take care of a lot of the whole site and it would still draw tourists north and south and it would put a lot of people to work.

Vali Nasr, The Indispensable Nation: American Foreign Policy in Retreat (Doubleday, 2013, 300 pages)MICHAELFRANCIS Special to the ChronicleThe author of this book is a faculty member and administrator at Johns Hopkins University arguably the best international studies program in America. He was brought into the Obama foreign policy team by Richard Holbrooke, the controversial troubleshooter who played a pivotal role in ending Yugoslavias ethnic wars. It was widely reported that Obama resisted the appointment of Holbrooke, but yielded to Hillary Clintons insistence. The author was part of Holbrookes team that concentrated on, among other things, using diplomatic negotiations to end the conflict in Afghanistan. Holbrooke unexpectedly died in December of 2010. This book is intended as a blueprint for a more productive American foreign policy. The author expresses disappointment with Obamas global strategy of retreat, while avoiding tarring Clinton with the same brush. Who knows? She might succeed Obama in the White House. If it is Clinton, one can see this book as Nasrs making a case for being appointed to an important foreign policy position. But in the meantime, this book offers profound and nuanced observations of global conflicts. Holbrooke was an advocate of forceful diplomatic maneuvering and called for immediate negotiations with the Taliban. However, President Obama wanted to use the U.S. military presence to transform the Afghan army into an effective fighting force in order to give the Hamid Karzai government a stronger position when negotiations began. Unfortunately, during the past few years, the Karzai administration has become increasingly corrupt and rigid, and so far the talks have bogged down before they started. In The Indispensable Nation, Nasr analyzes the options facing Washington as we attempt to halt violence in the Middle East and pursue our broader international interests. One could call his position muscular global liberalism. It is liberal in the sense of advocating free trade, global trade agreements, development-assistance projects and more effective international organizations. The United States, he argues, should use aggressive diplomacy to strengthen its links to Russia, China, Turkey and other important nations. This liberalism would seek to replace military might with an activist foreign policy unsurprisingly, in light of the limited results of our military engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan. Much of the book deals with the Middle East. His discussion of the Sunni/Shiite divisions and the Wahhabi influence in Saudi Arabia, the Alawite influence in Syria and other schisms within Islam are illuminating and cover issues Americans frequently overlook. He sees Turkey as vital to peace because it is a relatively prosperous country in the Middle East more modernized and less vulnerable to slipping into conflicts over religion. Obviously, recent events in Turkey cast some doubts as to its stability, but it remains to be seen how destabilizing these protests will be. He details the importance of Saudi Arabias oil, but suggests Washington has been overly submissive to the Saudi royal family and its support of Islamic extremism in other countries. Key to our being able to bring some sort of peace to the Middle East is the settlement of the Israeli/ Palestinian situation. He faults Obama for not pushing Israel harder to make concessions. Regarding Washingtons conflict with Iran over its nuclear research program, Nasr argues that the Unites States botched those talks by setting compliance prerequisites that were politically impossible for Iran. The sanctions have crippled the Iranian economy, but have not produced concessions at the bargaining table. This has increasingly drawn Russia and China into support of Tehran, especially as a trading partner. Recent elections in Iran suggest some softening, but that remains to be seen. His view of the Iraqi situation is that the United States pulled its troops out before the political system matured, and that supporting the Nouri al-Maliki government was a disaster, having strengthened Irans predominate Shiite position against the Sunnis. In Egypt, the United States was hopeful about the election of Mohammed Morsi, but unfortunately his Muslim Brotherhood allies wanted to settle old rivalries. Morsis election was welcomed, but now old religious and political scores are being settled by the Brotherhood. Nasr criticizes Washington for not earlier pushing serious reform in Egypt a country with an enormous and immoveable bureaucracy that clearly needs to be dismantled. As for the Arab Spring, Nasr says Washington has given up hope and blames Obama for the debacle. Nasrs advocacy of a foreign policy based on diplomacy rather than military power is an attractive one and could potentially help control our debt problems. In his emphasis on the Middle East and Asia, he skips over the unsettling problem of nuclear weapons proliferation. Perhaps this is understandable in view of the geographical focus on the book, but proliferation is still a major global problem. Traditionally, America has liked Teddy Roosevelts policy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick. Is it ready for a smaller stick and more emphasis on diplomatic and economic pressure as the basis of a new global policy? It certainly would be easier for the American taxpayer. Alas, as many have pointed out, we live in a brutal and unjust world. Nasrs book offers a thoughtful and informed roadmap for the future of U.S. foreign policy not dependent on military interventions but, at the risk of sounding pessimistic, it will take a political miracle to break our addiction to using military force in global affairs.Michael Francis is a Sugarmill Woods resident who taught international politics and U.S. foreign policy at the University of Notre Dame for 39 years prior to retiring.

Small, mostly unknown names are leading the surge in stock markets. Companies like Entravision Communications, a Spanish-language media company; SunPower, a maker of solar panels, and MannKind, a biopharmaceutical company, have more than tripled in value. All are part of the Russell 2000, an index of small-company stocks that has outperformed other major indexes in 2013. The Russell 2000, as its name implies, includes about 2,000 companies with a market value ranging from $129 million to $3.3 billion. The index broke through 1,000 for the first time on July 5 and closed Friday at 1,048. It has jumped 23 percent this year. Thats better than the Standard & Poors 500 index, which is up 19 percent, and the Dow Jones industrial average, which has gained 18 percent. The Russells performance is even more impressive over the past 4 1/2 years. The index is up 205 percent since a bull market in stocks began in March 2009; the S&P 500 is up 150 percent. That suggests investors are slightly more comfortable buying stocks of smaller, riskier companies, than they are holding shares of big, multinational companies, like Exxon Mobil and Apple. The S&P 600, another index that tracks small-company stocks, is also reflecting the popularity of small caps. That index is up 24 percent this year. Investors have poured a net $18.2 billion into small-company mutual funds this year, according to Lipper, a company that tracks funds. If that Oil rises near $106 on strong China data NEW YORK The price of oil rose more than 2 percent Friday as positive economic news from China outweighed expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve would soon start withdrawing its bond-buying program. Benchmark crude for September delivery gained $2.57, or 2.5 percent, to close at $105.97 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil still finished with a loss of 97 cents. Meanwhile, U.S. drivers are paying a nickel less on average at the gas pump than they were a week ago. The national average for a gallon of gasoline fell a penny overnight to $3.58. Thats the lowest average price since July 13. China, the worlds No. 2 economy after the United States, reported Friday that Julys producer prices the price of goods as they leave factories fell less rapidly than a year earlier, a sign that demand may be improving. Global markets rise after positive news LONDON Another round of largely better-than-expected Chinese economic data lifted Asian and European stock markets on Friday, though Wall Street lagged as trading volumes were low due to the summer lull. In Europe, Britains FTSE 100 index rose 0.8 percent to close at 6,583.39 while Germanys DAX rose 0.2 percent to 8,338.31. The CAC-40 in France gained 0.3 percent to 4,076.55. Earlier in Asia, Japans Nikkei 225 index ended 0.1 percent higher at 13,615.19. The mood in China was a bit more positive after the figures. The Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.4 percent to 2,052.24.

Customers can buy original and limited edition works of art from more than 150 prominent galleries and dealers via Amazon Art. The announcement came Tuesday, a day after Seattlebased Amazon.com Inc. announced that its CEO, Jeff Bezos had purchased The Washington Post. Amazon Art features 40,000 works from more than 4,500 artists. The wide range of works includes folk art, impressionism and modern art. Prices range widely, too. Theres a photograph by Clifford Ross for $200 and a painting by Norman Rockwell for $4.85 million.

The marriage between the newspaper industry and technology has never been consummated, but it could happen at The Washington Postnow, said media analyst Ken Doctor of Outsell Inc. Although Bezos bought The Postwith his own money, most experts believe he is likely to tether the newspaper to Amazon.com Inc.s products. He might also infuse the newspaper with some of the customer-first concepts that helped turn the Seattle company from an online book store into a multi-dimensional business that sells a multitude of merchandise and runs data centers that power other websites around the world. Just having his brain in the room will force people to confront digital in a way they havent before, predicted Jerry Ceppos, a former newspaper editor who is now dean of mass communications at Louisiana State University.

Creditors wont care about a divorce DEAR BRUCE: Our daughter divorced a year ago. In the divorce agreement, she retained the car that she and her exhusband were paying for. She was to refinance it as soon as possible to have his name taken off. After the divorce, she was out of work and could not obtain a loan. When she did get a job, no bank would give her a loan due to her low income. Her ex-husband sent her a letter stating he will take her to court to make her settle the car situation. She wrote him back explaining the problem and saying he can have the car and take over the loan if he wants it. He has remarried and has a better-paying job. She would love to sell the car, but cant get the amount that is still owed on the car. A couple of days ago, she was let go. Now she has no job to make payments. Her credit and her exhusbands credit will be blemished if she cant make the payments. Is there anything she can do? P .C., via email DEAR P.C.: Your daughter certainly has her hands full. The reality is that the car is under water. There is no way she is going to get her ex-husband to take over the payments. And due to her circumstances, it would be more difficult to find anybody to refinance the See MONEY/ Page D3 See POST/ Page D4 See WALL STREET/ Page D4

I would make this very clear in a letter to the ex-husband: If he could provide some reasonable way to achieve the result he wants, she will follow it. The alternative is that, since she cant make the payment or have the payment transferred to her responsibility alone, the creditor will immediately go to her ex-husband. The holders of the paper only recognize that they have two signatures on the loan. They are not going to care about the divorce agreement. She might be able to get a short sale approved by the creditor. That means that the creditor would accept less and write off the difference. DEAR BRUCE: I would like to start an online womens apparel business. I have only $1,000 in savings. Is it possible to get off the ground with such a small amount of money? W.M., via email DEAR W.M.: I am not going to tell you its impossible, but almost. You might be able to do some business on eBay. The problem is, where are you going to get the merchandise with only $1,000 in savings? Unless you specialize in something like older garments that you will have to go out and find one at a time, I think you are heading up a very steep hill. Youll have to invest a lot of time in scrounging up the garments and listing them on eBay and selling them. Youll have to start slowly, but this could give you a decent start. DEAR BRUCE: We are a retired couple. We have our investments in a mutual fund, which pays us interest quarterly. Our money market, savings and checking are all in our sons name. We also have our childrens name on our condo title, as well as other assets. Is it necessary for us to have a will to avoid probate? We would not want our children to go through probate if we can avoid it. J.L., Las Vegas DEAR J.L.: I am somewhat in the dark as to why you are avoiding going through probate. If everything is as you said and there are no assets in your name, you should have a will just in case something is overlooked. It doesnt have to be filed for probate if there is nothing to be distributed under the will. But I think you are living a dangerous life with everything in your childrens names. If they have any financial difficulties, the creditors are going to come right after your assets. In my opinion, your money market, savings, checking, condo, etc., should be in your own name, but if you are comfortable, so be it. I would be scared to death. DEAR BRUCE: I recently read your article regarding time-shares. I know you dont like them, but they do serve some purposes. One of the couples was talking about spending $25,000 for a weeks vacation. I can offer them mine in Orlando, Fla., for $12,000. Its a two-bedroom, two-bath and sleeps six. The maintenance is $400 a year. We have enjoyed ours for several years, but our lifestyle has changed. U.S., via email DEAR U.S.: I dont recall the article where I said a couple is spending $25,000 for a weeks vacation. That is one hell of a vacation! What you are saying is that you have a time-share in Orlando for $12,000, with maintenance of $400 a year. That would be a bargain, other things being equal, but I dont believe that they are. The chances are that your time-share is not worth $12,000. I cant imagine that you will be able to get anything close to that amount. The fact that you have enjoyed it but your lifestyle has changed is understandable, but getting $12,000 for most time-shares is an impossible dream. DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I have four credit cards with approximately $5,000 in charges on each that we have been paying off. We always look for credit cards with better financing options. Once we find one, we transfer balances and close the old accounts. It seems we average about seven months on a card. Right now were paying 0 percent on all the cards, but transfer to other cards when the current deal expires. Will all of this shifting around of debt hurt our credit rating? Reader, via email DEAR READER: The constant transferring of money and opening new accounts is going to have an adverse effect on your credit rating. How adverse is another matter. The fact that you are doing all this juggling and paying 0 percent speaks well for your ability to juggle. Even if your credit rating is suffering to some degree, it is clearly offset by the interest that you are not paying. What you should be doing is trying to get the $20,000 paid off by making as large a payment as you can. It should be larger than the minimums because there is no interest to be paid. The maneuvering is OK, but the major thing is to get that rather substantial credit card debt in line. DEAR BRUCE: The company I work for asked me to participate in their 401(k) plan. They asked me to sign a paper noting that I could not withdraw or transfer the funds if I left their employment, as I have done. Is this legal? W.S., via email DEAR W.S.: I dont know what it was you signed. You should get a copy of this document and take it to an attorney who specializes in these matters. It may well be that youre restricted to a certain time period each year as to when you can withdraw it. The fact that I am not aware of such an arrangement does not make it illegal. First, get ahold of the document you signed. Second, have it reviewed by an attorney. The third step will be dictated by what you find. Send questions to bruce@bruce williams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns. Owing to the volume of mail, personal replies cannot be provided. MONEYContinued from Page D1 T-Mobile gains key customers ANICKJESDANUN Associated PressNEW YORK The iPhone and new pricing plans helped T-Mobile gain customers under contract plans for the first time in at least two and a half years, a major boost for a wireless carrier often dismissed as an afterthought in a market dominated by AT&T and Verizon. Contract customers are the most lucrative for wireless carriers. T-Mobile US Inc. added a net 688,000 contract customers in the April-June quarter, compared with a loss of 557,000 in the same period a year ago. In fact, it was the first gain since the fourth quarter of 2010, when T-Mobile started reporting comparable figures. Part of the boost came because the carrier began selling Apples iPhone for the first time in April. Although T-Mobiles gains through the iPhone might suggest a one-time occurrence rather than a sustainable comeback, T-Mobile said the iPhone accounted for only 26 percent of smartphone sales in the quarter, excluding sales through MetroPCS, which merged with T-Mobile on April 30. Other phones did well, including Samsungs Galaxy S4. The S4, which came out during the quarter, accounted for 18 percent of smartphone sales. T-Mobile credited new pricing plans, known as Simple Choice, with attracting new customers. In March, T-Mobile dropped its conventional two-year service contracts in favor of selling phones with installment plans. The price for voice, text and data services fell to reflect the new installment charge for a phone. But once customers pay off the phone after two years, or for customers who already have phones, their monthly bill goes down. Craig Moffett, an analyst at Moffett Research, said T-Mobiles gains in contract customers were five times analysts expectations of 140,000. We are witnessing what happens when the first credible price cutter arrives in an overpriced and saturated market, he said. 000FQFV DRYER VENT CLEANING DONT LET YOUR DRYER START A FIRE!

D4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS Speaker inspires many to be all they can be Afew years ago, I introduced you to Scott Burrows, a motivational speaker who truly is an inspiration. He not only could talk the talk, but he most assuredly could walk the walk which he did, literally, at the close of the Florida Workforce Development Super Heroes Summit I attended. In fact, Burrows walked right off the stage, down the center aisle and out the door to the auditorium. The crowd was on its feet cheering, and I venture to say there wasnt a dry eye in the house. This week, I was privileged to see Burrows again. And again, the audience was gobsmacked into a standing ovation. Why such emotional approbation? Burrows is a quadriplegic. Not was, but is. A nationally ranked scholar athlete and fierce competitor, he had played college football at Florida State University under Bobby Bowden and was a top-ranked kickboxing champion whose last victory aired on ESPN shortly before the horrific car accident in November 1984 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. He was 20 years old. And so it was with extraordinary effort that before our stunned eyes, Burrows manages to hoist himself out of his wheelchair and, clutching a golf club as a cane, makes a purposeful beeline for the exit. Cue the video of Burrows as an avid golfer and also doing things many of us dont, or wont: skydiving, scuba diving and playing wheelchair rugby a game originally, and aptly, dubbed murderball. He has also earned a degree in finance and a seat at the Premier Association of Financial Professionals Million Dollar Round Table, launched a successful career as an international entrepreneur and is a respected author and speaker. Talk about vision. Talk about mindset. Talk about grit. I dont know about you, but there were days when I thought I was so mired in tough times that I struggled just to get out of bed in the morning, and here is someone who gets out of his wheelchair. My question to you is this: Are you out of work and struggling to get back on your feet? Are you an employer who may be afraid of taking that first tentative step toward expanding your staff? If so, then take a chapter from Burrows book, Vision, Mindset, Grit: How to Stand Up When Life Paralyzes You. It starts with vision, the conviction, that you will find reemployment or, if you are an employer, that you will find your next great employee. Next, set your mind to it; mindset, Burrows tells us, is what you do with what you can control. You may not think so, but lack of employability skills or experience is not beyond your control. Workforce Connection has trained placement specialists, workshops and resources to help your vision come into clear focus. Lastly, dont let your fear handicap or paralyze you into inaction. Burrows said he was willing to fail but unwilling to quit. Youve got to have the grit, the determination, to pull yourself out of your own figurative wheelchair, and take that first step. It may not be easy, but were here to help ensure you take that step in the right direction. Workforce Connection services are offered at no charge.

The newspaper is the anchor of a division that lost $54 million at The Washington Post Co. last year while generating revenue of $582 million 39 percent less than it did in 2005. There is no map, and charting a path ahead will not be easy, Bezos wrote in a Monday letter sent to Postemployees after his surprise acquisition was announced. We will need to invent, which means we will need to experiment. According to an Amazon spokesman, Bezos wasnt available to be interviewed Tuesday about his plans for thePost. Bezos purchase of The Postmakes him the latest billionaire to funnel some of his money into the ailing newspaper industry. Berkshire Hathaway Inc. CEO Warren Buffett has assembled a portfolio of more than 30 small and mediumsized newspapers while Boston Red Sox owner John Henry recently agreed to pay $70 million for his hometown newspaper, The Boston Globe. Buffett, renowned for investing in outof-favor companies, also happens to be one of the largest shareholders in The Washington Post Co., which is selling its namesake newspaper to Bezos. Buffetts penchant for going against the grain and focusing on long-term investments are qualities Bezos has embraced with phenomenal success. Amazons nearly two-decade history under Bezos leadership suggests The Postis likely to try things that other newspapers steeped in tradition have never dared to attempt. Ever since he was a little kid, it got deeply ingrained into Jeff that experimentation is the answer to everything, said Hal Gregerson, who interviewed Bezos for his 2011 book, The Innovators DNA. Exploring the edges is one of Jeffs counterintuitive skills. If you go back to when he started Amazon, he was paying attention to something out of the corner of his eye and turned it into something that others didnt see. Its impossible to predict the bright ideas Bezos might explore, partly because reviving the Postwould probably take years to pull off. Experts are floating a host of possibilities. Bezos could, for instance, deploy the technology that Amazon uses to recommend books, movies and music to consumers to enable the Postto automatically tailor digital news packages to each readers interests. He might impose more fees to read the Postscontent online. At the same time, he might bundle free subscriptions as part of Amazons Kindle Fire tablet or for consumers who buy Amazons Prime service for free shipping. He could even include special offers in the printed edition for discounted or free Amazon.com deliveries. The Postand other newspapers might not be around that much longer, unless radical changes are made. Some of the biggest newspapers already have had to seek refuge in bankruptcy court to reshuffle their finances during the past five years and the outlook still looks grim. Based on his recent conversations with publishers, analyst Doctor believes revenue is likely to continue to slip for the next five years, too. Newspapers have been suffering because their main source of revenue advertising sold in their print editions has been falling sharply during the past eight years as marketers discovered they could target their messages at prospective customers more effectively through Googles search engine, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and a variety of other digital outlets. Most newspapers have intensified their focus on their own digital editions during the past few years, but still havent been able to overcome this fundamental problem: digital ads typically sell for 10 percent to 50 percent less than print ads. That gap is the chief reason that the annual print ad revenue at U.S. newspapers has plummeted 60 percent in just seven years, dropping from $47.4 billion in 2005 to $18.9 billion last year, according to the Newspaper Association of America. Over the same stretch, the industrys digital ad revenue has climbed from $2 billion in 2005 to $3.4 billion last year. Bezos has been making rapid inroads in digital advertising at Amazon. The companys annual ad revenue is expected to total about $835 million this year, up 37 percent from $610 million last year, according to estimates from the research firm eMarketer. But newspapers are mired in such a deep financial hole that it will be difficult for even a savvy Internet executive like Bezos to find a workable solution at The Post, said Christopher Harper, a journalism professor at Temple University. Its not really a business deal, its almost an investment in a nonprofit, Harper said. Its one Bezos can easily afford to make. The purchase price works out to just 1 percent of Bezos estimated $25 billion fortune. In the U.S., the median charitable contribution works out to nearly 5 percent of annual discretionary income, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Bezos is also in a better position to absorb ongoing losses at The Washington Postthan the newspaper would have been had it remained part of a publicly held company under pressure to deliver better returns for a larger pool of shareholders. One of the smartest things is moving toward private ownership, said Ellen Shearer, a journalism professor at Northwestern University. I think thats what a lot of papers need right now, particularly The Post. Its likely that some of his ideas will fail, but that probably wont bother Bezos. In his inaugural letter to Amazon shareholders in 1997, Bezos emphasized, Its all about the long term. He has attached that proclamation to each annual letter hes written since. Indeed, it took Amazon nearly a decade before it turned its first annual profit. Even now, the company doesnt make as much money as most analysts think it should, partly because Bezos is continually investing in new ideas and equipment that he believes will make the business even more lucrative. After subtracting the $3 billion of losses sustained during its early years, Amazon has earned a combined $2 billion since its inception. In comparison, Google Inc. a company born four years later than Amazon is now earning more than $3 billion every three months. Bezos strategy at Amazon.com has worked well so far, gracing so far with a market value of $137 billion. One thing that Bezos seems to be is patient, said Jeff South, a former newspaper editor and reporter who is now a journalism professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. He was with Amazon, losing money quarter after quarter. He seemed to say we know what were doing, its going to take time. Hopefully, that can transfer to newspapers. After getting to know Bezos while interviewing him for his book, Gregerson is convinced the Postpurchase is a case of business mixing with personal passion. Jeff loves books, he loves journalism, he loves writing, he loves ideas and he love to make things happen, Gregerson said. Thats a quality 90 percent of executives dont have. They dont love the essence of what they are doing as much Jeff does. I dont know what answers he will have in terms of a 10-year plan for thePost, but I think there is a good probabilPOSTContinued from Page D1 BUSINESS DIGEST Seven Rivers appoints new staff leadership CRYSTAL RIVER Seven Rivers Regional Medical Centers mission to serve the community with excellence in health care is strengthened by the support of the affiliated medical staff and its leadership.

Labor dept. launches smartphone contestWASHINGTON As part of the 75th anniversary of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the U.S. Department of Labors Wage and Hour Division is challenging innovative minds to develop a smartphone application that will transform the way the public is able to use departmental enforcement data. By providing consumers with information at their fingertips about which businesses have treated their workers fairly and lawfully, the creator of this application will help empower consumers to make informed choices about where to bring their business. The DOL Fair Labor Data Challenge calls for creating a smartphone app that integrates the departments publicly available enforcement data with consumer ratings websites, geopositioning sites, and other relevant data sets, such as those available from state health boards. The app we would like to see developed would work with existing social media and would allow consumers to see if an establishment that they want to frequent has been in compliance with federal labor laws, said Laura Fortman, principal deputy administrator of the Wage and Hour Division.

Here are the factors behind the rise in smallcompany stocks.MORERISK, MORERETURNTypically, small-company stocks are riskier investments than larger companies. The companies tend to be relatively young; its harder for them to raise money to expand; and they are more vulnerable during downturns because they arent as diversified as big companies. But in times of economic growth and rising stock markets, like now, demand for small-company stocks goes up because investors are more comfortable taking on risk. And small companies can reward risk-takers with bigger returns. The S&P 500 has risen 22 of the last 30 years. In those years when the broader market gained, the Russell outperformed the S&P 500 about 64 percent of the time. The indexs best year was 2003, when it soared 45 percent, compared with 26 percent for the S&P 500.BETTERGROWTHIn an economy that is expanding slowly, rather than powering ahead, many companies are finding growth hard. When corporations finish reporting second-quarter results, revenue for companies in the Standard & Poors 500 is forecast to have declined 0.6 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012. But smaller companies entering new niches can grow quickly. Digital marketing is one area of strong growth as smartphones and tablet computers soar in popularity. The majority of Americans now own a smartphone of some kind, according to a survey published by the Pew Research Center on June 5. Smartphone adaptation among U.S. adults has climbed to 56 percent from only 35 percent two years ago.ACQUISITIONTARGETSHigher growth rates make some small companies tempting acquisitions for larger rivals, who can boost their revenue growth by absorbing them. Many of the big gainers in the Russell this year are acquisition targets. The reason? Big companies often pay a premium to acquire a company. When investors think a deal may be coming, their buying boosts a small companys stock price. WALL STREETContinued from Page D1

The seeds did not sprout until after the rains came and the soil had warmed to more than 75 degrees in late June this year. Mike wondered if the wildlife had eaten them all, or if they had rotted or died over the winter. He walked over to tell me of his surprise at finding little iris plants all along the border. I went looking for seedlings that had sown themselves around my property. There were many that needed to be moved to better locations. I dug them from the lawn and beds then planted them in small groups of three to five plants 3 to 4 feet back from the sand path walking trail along the east border planting bed. The irises will get more than 2 feet tall by next year, when they will flower for the first time. In the Iris family, this original Chinese Iris, Iris domestica, was often called Blackberry Lily or Leopard Lily in the past. It had been named Belamcandachinensis until accurate DNA testing proved the error. It has been grown as a cultivated garden perennial for millennia in Asia. The strap-like flat leaves fan out from a root tuber that develops as the plant grows. Leaves are about 1.5 inches wide on mature plants; they last only one season, and die off after the flower stem has set seed. New leaves sprout from the established tuber and roots. These last remain evergreen over winter in Central Florida. Further north, cover them with a few inches of pine needle mulch to insulate against frost. Slender flower stems emerge from the clump in summer to fall starting in July locally. Six slim petals about an inch long form a flower around pollentipped stamens. The flowers are quite un-irislike. Petals are apricot to deep orange-red. Some forms can have yellow petals. Petals are often speckled with dark spots, hence the name Leopard Iris (not lily). Common names vary from country to country and from gardener to gardener. Seeds soon form in pods that open to reveal a tight cluster of hard black seeds resembling a blackberry in form hence the common name Blackberry Iris. After years of calling this lovey Iris something else, it is hard to remember to say iris. However, I do not want to misinform young Michael and Emma who have just started to learn about gardening in their first house. Chinese Domestic Iris, Blackberry Iris or Leopard Iris whichever you call it grows well in full sun. Soil should be humus-rich and well-drained. They enjoy lots of water in hot weather, so thrive in Floridas hot, wet summers. They grow best in cold zones 8 to 11.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Some garden flowers are annuals that grow from seed each year, flower, set seed and then die. New seedlings sprout the following season. Other plants are perennials that last for several years. Perennials also have a fixed life span of a few to many years. As perennials get old and produce fewer flowers, gardeners replace them with younger plants made from divisions, cuttings or seeds. Plant propagation is one of the joys of gardening.

This time of year, Citrus County is experiencing intense heat characteristic of the dog days of summer, along with a regular dousing of afternoon showers. These weather conditions are ideal for mosquito breeding. You may have not given it much thought, but you can limit mosquito populations by diligently limiting breeding sites around your home. If there are any hidden places around your home where water collects, such as water-holding containers, storm drains, clogged rain gutters, swimming pools, ornamental ponds, etc. you may be breeding mosquitoes! All mosquitoes need water to pass through their life stages. Adult flying mosquitoes can rest in grass, shrubbery or other foliage, but they never breed there. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water where they hatch in a day or two. Other mosquitoes lay their eggs in old tires, tin cans and other such waterholding containers. The mosquitoes may remain unhatched for weeks, months or until they are covered with water. The mosquito wigglers or larvae grow quickly and turn into tumblers or pupae. Then the skin of the tumbler opens and out climbs a hungry adult mosquito. Scout your yard and implement the following actions: 1. Empty, drain, remove, cover or turn upside down things that can hold water.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E9 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The Golden Girl WEEKS REALTY, 5 BEVERLY HILLS BLVD.

Throw out old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, and other containers or keep them upside down so no water can enter them. 2. Empty any small plastic wading pools weekly. Store them indoors when not in use. Properly maintain your swimming pool and keep it covered so as not to collect water. 3. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Dont let runoff water from your air conditioner collect in shady areas. 4. Change water and scrub birdbaths once a week. 5. Empty and refill pets water pans daily. 6. Discard old tires or store them indoors. 7. Tip wheel barrows or other garden carts on end to avoid collecting water. As everyone knows, mosquitoes are troublesome pests which can cause itchy bites and transmit viruses. The best way to avoid being bitten is to stay clear of mosquito-infested areas and wear protective clothing and insect repellent.The more skin you cover with layers of clothing, the fewer bites you will receive. Female mosquitoes feed on blood to help their eggs develop. When mosquitoes bite, they release saliva into the bite area. Allergic reactions to the saliva cause the itchy bumps and swollen hives some people get after being bitten. If a mosquito is carrying a virus, that virus can be transferred toCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E5 E8SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000FPV5 311 W.

Mosquito-borne diseases currently of public health concern in Florida include St. Louis encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus encephalitis, and dengue fever. Another option is applying topical repellents. Repellents are used to repel mosquitoes they do not kill them. The best repellents provide protection for a long period of time per application. Current repellents are either synthetic or plant-derived chemicals available in spray, wipe-on, foam or lotion formulas. DEET is a highly effective repellent. DEET may not be on a products labelits chemical names might be listed instead: N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide, N,Ndiemethylbenzamide In addition to DEET, the CDC added the following to its list of recommended repellents: Picaridin (chemical name: 1-Piperidinecarboxylic acid; 2-(2-hydroxyethyl);1-methyl propylester), and oil of lemoneucalyptus (chemical name: p-menthane 3,8-diol (PMD)). The EPA has determined that correct and normal usage of DEET is not a health concern. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using DEET products with a 30 percent concentration or less on children. Insect repellents shouldnt be used at all on children younger than 2 months old.

Once its cool, place the bread in a plastic bag, which will help soften the crust and make it a bit more like store-bought. Sandwich Bread 3 cups lukewarm water. 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. 2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 packets). 1 tablespoon salt. 1/2 cup butter (or shortening or salad oil). 10 cups of flour. In a large, warmed bowl, add 1 cup lukewarm water, 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir until yeast is dissolved. Stir in 2 cups lukewarm water, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, salt and butter. Beat ingredients, then stir in 9 cups of flour, adding them 1 cup at a time. Use the last cup of flour to flour your countertop surface for kneading. Knead until dough becomes elastic, approximately five minutes. After kneading, put the dough in a large, oiled bowl and flip to coat both sides with oil. Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm place. Let it rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough to remove air bubbles and divide into three pieces. Shape into loaves and put into greased loaf pans. Cover pans with dishtowels and place in a warm area for another hour. Loaves should double in size. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. It is ready when it turns golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a cooling rack.Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugal village. com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

FRUGALContinued from Page E4 MOSQUITOESContinued from Page E5 AMYLORENTZEN Associated PressIf theres somewhere in your home that needs livening up but its not practical to use real plants, consider using faux flowers and greenery. And dont worry about it. Decorators, or maybe your mother, used to tell you to skip the fake stuff if you wanted to stay classy. But improved manufacturing and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation. The technology has come a long way. They look so real now its hard to tell, says Kathie Chrisicos, designer and president of Bostonbased Chrisicos Interiors.Selection savvyWhen youre shopping for faux, pay attention to detail. Manufactured plants and flowers should have the variations in color, texture and density that live plants do, including the look of new growth and old growth, says Doug Hopeman, owner of the Nashville, Tenn.-based Artificial Plants and Trees. Visible stems, branches and trunks should appear realistic. The ability to create the minute, intricate detail of everything about the plants and trees helps make them more natural-looking than they were 10 years ago, he says. You can choose from an array of products. People often choose real plants that arent native to their region, so dont feel limited to the varieties found near you when buying artificial ones, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores. When it comes to creativity, there is no right or wrong way to choose, she says. The great thing is that artificial flowers and plants offer the flexibility to choose what you want when you want, regardless of the season or your region. Current trends in greenery include palms and succulents, as well as potted herbs such as lavender and rosemary, and small leafy plants and ivies. Peonies, mums, dahlias, sunflowers and hydrangeas are among popular silk florals.Perfect presentationArtificial plants are easy to manipulate. You can bend stems and branches to make them reach toward natural light or fit into a certain space or container, and then change it up so it doesnt always look the same. Ive had people tell me my plant was really growing when, in fact, Im just repositioning it occasionally, Pearson says. To arrange petals, stems and foliage on artificial products, check out photos of live plants online. For Stephanie Norris, the designer behind San Diego-based Cre8tive Designs Inc., using faux plants requires choosing the right containers, and accessories such as real soil, sand and stones. Its a little more texture, she says. Its dressing it up, which is really the finishing touch with using an artificial plant.Outdoor interestSome homeowners mix artificial greenery into their landscaping in areas where live plants dont thrive. Its that side of your house that has no light, and every season youre putting new topiaries out there, Hopeman says. Thats the perfect opportunity for an artificial plant. Norris says she mixes artificial with live plants at her home for a lusher look. Among her favorites are small boxwoods sold by IKEA.Minimal maintenanceBecause you dont have to prune, water or fertilize faux foliage and florals, theyre perfect for people who dont have a green thumb, who travel a lot or who have allergies. While we all love real plants, sometimes real plants just arent practical, Pearson says. Keeping artificial plants looking their best usually requires no more than dusting or wiping with a damp cloth. Many can be rinsed off in the shower or outdoors with a hose on a gentle setting. Youll want to replace faux plants whenever you see signs of fading. Hopeman says faux plants are a great choice for a drab or dark area where nothing will grow. And, of course, you should still buy your wife fresh flowers, he adds. Fake plants can add life to dull spaces Associated PressA Michaels Outdoor Vase with an artificial floral arrangement. People often choose plants that arent native to their region, so don't feel limited to a variety of flower or plant found in your locale, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores.

There was a great sale on strawberries recently at the local farm, but I didnt have much time that night to put them up, so I passed. I usually wash, crush or slice my berries, add sugar and bag them in gallon-sized bags. But could I freeze the berries whole? I wonder if I could wash, pat dry, hull and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then transfer them to a larger container with an airtight lid in the freezer. Have you done it this way with success? Most of our strawberries are used in smoothies, so texture after thawing is not an issue. Susan, emailDear Susan: Yes, you can freeze them whole, exactly the way that youre planning on trying. I prefer this method for freezing whole strawberries, but you can put them in a freezer bag immediately if your plans are to just use them for smoothies. Id remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Not an ideal way to go about it because they tend to clump together, but its better than losing out on the sale or having them rot because you dont have enough time. Dear Sara: How can I remove a bluish-green ring stain in my porcelain toilet bowl? I have tried Bar Keepers Friend, vinegar, baking soda and a combination of vinegar and baking soda, with no success. D.L., VirginiaDear D.L.: Sounds like mineral deposits. Try dropping a couple of Efferdent denturecleaning tablets into the bowl. Leave overnight and then clean the toilet as usual. Dear Sara: I grew up on homemade bread, but my husband never had it until we got together. He likes it for buttered bread, but not much else. I need to find a recipe thats as close to store-bought as I can, as our local bread outlet has closed and I know its cheaper to make at home. Any suggestions? S.B., Maine See FRUGAL / Page E8 Figure looks to be work of noted Austrian sculptor Dear John: I am interested in selling the porcelain parrot lamp in the attached photo. It is approximately 18 inches from tabletop to head. I cannot find any markings on the base. Are you able to give us any information on this lamp? D.G., InternetDear D.G.: I think your porcelain figural parrot lamp was made in Germany between World I and II. The underside of the parrot should be examined for a makers mark; it could make a considerable difference in potential dollar value. If the parrot is not glued to the base, remove it and see if it is marked. Let me know what you discover. Dear John: I have two schoolbooks. One is an arithmetic book from the year 1866, called Rudiments of Arithmetic by Van Antwerp, Bragg & Co. The other book is Universal History from the Creation of the World to the Decease of George III, 1820, New York Harper & Brothers, Publishers. On the cover of the history book it has Ohio School Library. They are both in fair condition, but there is some wear on the arithmetic book. Can you tell me what they are worth, if anything, and who might want them? M.B., InternetDear M.B.: I was not able to find any specific collector interest in the two books. You might consider a donation to the local library. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I have a friend who is not in good health and has a room full of sports memorabilia. He has agreed to dispose of it. He is amenable to having someone come, appraise it, and market it for a commission, natch. It consists of letters from famous sports figures, autographed pictures, autographed hockey pucks, and hundreds of baseball cards. Do you know someone in the area who might be qualified and able to help him? B.C., InternetDear B.C.: Wow, sounds like a nice collection. I suggest you contact an auction company that specializes in sports memorabilia. Lelands is one of the big boys on the block in the category of sports memorabilia. Before you contact them, make an informal list of the collection. The website is www. lelands.com. Let us know how things work out. Dear John: I have a porcelain tea set, including a pot, sugar bowl with lid, five cups and six saucers, which was given to my family by T.V. Soong, brother of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, in 1914.

There was a great sale on strawberries recently at the local farm, but I didnt have much time that night to put them up, so I passed. I usually wash, crush or slice my berries, add sugar and bag them in gallon-sized bags. But could I freeze the berries whole? I wonder if I could wash, pat dry, hull and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then transfer them to a larger container with an airtight lid in the freezer. Have you done it this way with success? Most of our strawberries are used in smoothies, so texture after thawing is not an issue. Susan, emailDear Susan: Yes, you can freeze them whole, exactly the way that youre planning on trying. I prefer this method for freezing whole strawberries, but you can put them in a freezer bag immediately if your plans are to just use them for smoothies. Id remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Not an ideal way to go about it because they tend to clump together, but its better than losing out on the sale or having them rot because you dont have enough time. Dear Sara: How can I remove a bluish-green ring stain in my porcelain toilet bowl? I have tried Bar Keepers Friend, vinegar, baking soda and a combination of vinegar and baking soda, with no success. D.L., VirginiaDear D.L.: Sounds like mineral deposits. Try dropping a couple of Efferdent denturecleaning tablets into the bowl. Leave overnight and then clean the toilet as usual. Dear Sara: I grew up on homemade bread, but my husband never had it until we got together. He likes it for buttered bread, but not much else. I need to find a recipe thats as close to store-bought as I can, as our local bread outlet has closed and I know its cheaper to make at home. Any suggestions? S.B., Maine See FRUGAL / Page E8 Figure looks to be work of noted Austrian sculptor Dear John: I am interested in selling the porcelain parrot lamp in the attached photo. It is approximately 18 inches from tabletop to head. I cannot find any markings on the base. Are you able to give us any information on this lamp? D.G., InternetDear D.G.: I think your porcelain figural parrot lamp was made in Germany between World I and II. The underside of the parrot should be examined for a makers mark; it could make a considerable difference in potential dollar value. If the parrot is not glued to the base, remove it and see if it is marked. Let me know what you discover. Dear John: I have two schoolbooks. One is an arithmetic book from the year 1866, called Rudiments of Arithmetic by Van Antwerp, Bragg & Co. The other book is Universal History from the Creation of the World to the Decease of George III, 1820, New York Harper & Brothers, Publishers. On the cover of the history book it has Ohio School Library. They are both in fair condition, but there is some wear on the arithmetic book. Can you tell me what they are worth, if anything, and who might want them? M.B., InternetDear M.B.: I was not able to find any specific collector interest in the two books. You might consider a donation to the local library. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I have a friend who is not in good health and has a room full of sports memorabilia. He has agreed to dispose of it. He is amenable to having someone come, appraise it, and market it for a commission, natch. It consists of letters from famous sports figures, autographed pictures, autographed hockey pucks, and hundreds of baseball cards. Do you know someone in the area who might be qualified and able to help him? B.C., InternetDear B.C.: Wow, sounds like a nice collection. I suggest you contact an auction company that specializes in sports memorabilia. Lelands is one of the big boys on the block in the category of sports memorabilia. Before you contact them, make an informal list of the collection. The website is www. lelands.com. Let us know how things work out. Dear John: I have a porcelain tea set, including a pot, sugar bowl with lid, five cups and six saucers, which was given to my family by T.V. Soong, brother of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, in 1914.

Throw out old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, and other containers or keep them upside down so no water can enter them. 2. Empty any small plastic wading pools weekly. Store them indoors when not in use. Properly maintain your swimming pool and keep it covered so as not to collect water. 3. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Dont let runoff water from your air conditioner collect in shady areas. 4. Change water and scrub birdbaths once a week. 5. Empty and refill pets water pans daily. 6. Discard old tires or store them indoors. 7. Tip wheel barrows or other garden carts on end to avoid collecting water. As everyone knows, mosquitoes are troublesome pests which can cause itchy bites and transmit viruses. The best way to avoid being bitten is to stay clear of mosquito-infested areas and wear protective clothing and insect repellent.The more skin you cover with layers of clothing, the fewer bites you will receive. Female mosquitoes feed on blood to help their eggs develop. When mosquitoes bite, they release saliva into the bite area. Allergic reactions to the saliva cause the itchy bumps and swollen hives some people get after being bitten. If a mosquito is carrying a virus, that virus can be transferred toCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E5 E8SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000FPV5 311 W.

Mosquito-borne diseases currently of public health concern in Florida include St. Louis encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus encephalitis, and dengue fever. Another option is applying topical repellents. Repellents are used to repel mosquitoes they do not kill them. The best repellents provide protection for a long period of time per application. Current repellents are either synthetic or plant-derived chemicals available in spray, wipe-on, foam or lotion formulas. DEET is a highly effective repellent. DEET may not be on a products labelits chemical names might be listed instead: N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide, N,Ndiemethylbenzamide In addition to DEET, the CDC added the following to its list of recommended repellents: Picaridin (chemical name: 1-Piperidinecarboxylic acid; 2-(2-hydroxyethyl);1-methyl propylester), and oil of lemoneucalyptus (chemical name: p-menthane 3,8-diol (PMD)). The EPA has determined that correct and normal usage of DEET is not a health concern. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using DEET products with a 30 percent concentration or less on children. Insect repellents shouldnt be used at all on children younger than 2 months old.

Once its cool, place the bread in a plastic bag, which will help soften the crust and make it a bit more like store-bought. Sandwich Bread 3 cups lukewarm water. 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. 2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 packets). 1 tablespoon salt. 1/2 cup butter (or shortening or salad oil). 10 cups of flour. In a large, warmed bowl, add 1 cup lukewarm water, 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir until yeast is dissolved. Stir in 2 cups lukewarm water, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, salt and butter. Beat ingredients, then stir in 9 cups of flour, adding them 1 cup at a time. Use the last cup of flour to flour your countertop surface for kneading. Knead until dough becomes elastic, approximately five minutes. After kneading, put the dough in a large, oiled bowl and flip to coat both sides with oil. Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm place. Let it rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough to remove air bubbles and divide into three pieces. Shape into loaves and put into greased loaf pans. Cover pans with dishtowels and place in a warm area for another hour. Loaves should double in size. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. It is ready when it turns golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a cooling rack.Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugal village. com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

FRUGALContinued from Page E4 MOSQUITOESContinued from Page E5 AMYLORENTZEN Associated PressIf theres somewhere in your home that needs livening up but its not practical to use real plants, consider using faux flowers and greenery. And dont worry about it. Decorators, or maybe your mother, used to tell you to skip the fake stuff if you wanted to stay classy. But improved manufacturing and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation. The technology has come a long way. They look so real now its hard to tell, says Kathie Chrisicos, designer and president of Bostonbased Chrisicos Interiors.Selection savvyWhen youre shopping for faux, pay attention to detail. Manufactured plants and flowers should have the variations in color, texture and density that live plants do, including the look of new growth and old growth, says Doug Hopeman, owner of the Nashville, Tenn.-based Artificial Plants and Trees. Visible stems, branches and trunks should appear realistic. The ability to create the minute, intricate detail of everything about the plants and trees helps make them more natural-looking than they were 10 years ago, he says. You can choose from an array of products. People often choose real plants that arent native to their region, so dont feel limited to the varieties found near you when buying artificial ones, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores. When it comes to creativity, there is no right or wrong way to choose, she says. The great thing is that artificial flowers and plants offer the flexibility to choose what you want when you want, regardless of the season or your region. Current trends in greenery include palms and succulents, as well as potted herbs such as lavender and rosemary, and small leafy plants and ivies. Peonies, mums, dahlias, sunflowers and hydrangeas are among popular silk florals.Perfect presentationArtificial plants are easy to manipulate. You can bend stems and branches to make them reach toward natural light or fit into a certain space or container, and then change it up so it doesnt always look the same. Ive had people tell me my plant was really growing when, in fact, Im just repositioning it occasionally, Pearson says. To arrange petals, stems and foliage on artificial products, check out photos of live plants online. For Stephanie Norris, the designer behind San Diego-based Cre8tive Designs Inc., using faux plants requires choosing the right containers, and accessories such as real soil, sand and stones. Its a little more texture, she says. Its dressing it up, which is really the finishing touch with using an artificial plant.Outdoor interestSome homeowners mix artificial greenery into their landscaping in areas where live plants dont thrive. Its that side of your house that has no light, and every season youre putting new topiaries out there, Hopeman says. Thats the perfect opportunity for an artificial plant. Norris says she mixes artificial with live plants at her home for a lusher look. Among her favorites are small boxwoods sold by IKEA.Minimal maintenanceBecause you dont have to prune, water or fertilize faux foliage and florals, theyre perfect for people who dont have a green thumb, who travel a lot or who have allergies. While we all love real plants, sometimes real plants just arent practical, Pearson says. Keeping artificial plants looking their best usually requires no more than dusting or wiping with a damp cloth. Many can be rinsed off in the shower or outdoors with a hose on a gentle setting. Youll want to replace faux plants whenever you see signs of fading. Hopeman says faux plants are a great choice for a drab or dark area where nothing will grow. And, of course, you should still buy your wife fresh flowers, he adds. Fake plants can add life to dull spaces Associated PressA Michaels Outdoor Vase with an artificial floral arrangement. People often choose plants that arent native to their region, so don't feel limited to a variety of flower or plant found in your locale, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores.

This time of year, Citrus County is experiencing intense heat characteristic of the dog days of summer, along with a regular dousing of afternoon showers. These weather conditions are ideal for mosquito breeding. You may have not given it much thought, but you can limit mosquito populations by diligently limiting breeding sites around your home. If there are any hidden places around your home where water collects, such as water-holding containers, storm drains, clogged rain gutters, swimming pools, ornamental ponds, etc. you may be breeding mosquitoes! All mosquitoes need water to pass through their life stages. Adult flying mosquitoes can rest in grass, shrubbery or other foliage, but they never breed there. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water where they hatch in a day or two. Other mosquitoes lay their eggs in old tires, tin cans and other such waterholding containers. The mosquitoes may remain unhatched for weeks, months or until they are covered with water. The mosquito wigglers or larvae grow quickly and turn into tumblers or pupae. Then the skin of the tumbler opens and out climbs a hungry adult mosquito. Scout your yard and implement the following actions: 1. Empty, drain, remove, cover or turn upside down things that can hold water.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E9 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The Golden Girl WEEKS REALTY, 5 BEVERLY HILLS BLVD.

Some garden flowers are annuals that grow from seed each year, flower, set seed and then die. New seedlings sprout the following season. Other plants are perennials that last for several years. Perennials also have a fixed life span of a few to many years. As perennials get old and produce fewer flowers, gardeners replace them with younger plants made from divisions, cuttings or seeds. Plant propagation is one of the joys of gardening.

Michael an envelope of hard black seeds from the domestic Chinese Irises growing in my garden. He scattered a few dry seeds at the bases of the crape myrtles he had planted along his roadside property line facing my home. The seeds did not sprout until after the rains came and the soil had warmed to more than 75 degrees in late June this year. Mike wondered if the wildlife had eaten them all, or if they had rotted or died over the winter. He walked over to tell me of his surprise at finding little iris plants all along the border. I went looking for seedlings that had sown themselves around my property. There were many that needed to be moved to better locations. I dug them from the lawn and beds then planted them in small groups of three to five plants 3 to 4 feet back from the sand path walking trail along the east border planting bed. The irises will get more than 2 feet tall by next year, when they will flower for the first time. In the Iris family, this original Chinese Iris, Iris domestica, was often called Blackberry Lily or Leopard Lily in the past. It had been named Belamcandachinensis until accurate DNA testing proved the error. It has been grown as a cultivated garden perennial for millennia in Asia. The strap-like flat leaves fan out from a root tuber that develops as the plant grows. Leaves are about 1.5 inches wide on mature plants; they last only one season, and die off after the flower stem has set seed. New leaves sprout from the established tuber and roots. These last remain evergreen over winter in Central Florida. Further north, cover them with a few inches of pine needle mulch to insulate against frost. Slender flower stems emerge from the clump in summer to fall starting in July locally. Six slim petals about an inch long form a flower around pollentipped stamens. The flowers are quite un-irislike. Petals are apricot to deep orange-red. Some forms can have yellow petals. Petals are often speckled with dark spots, hence the name Leopard Iris (not lily). Common names vary from country to country and from gardener to gardener. Seeds soon form in pods that open to reveal a tight cluster of hard black seeds resembling a blackberry in form hence the common name Blackberry Iris. After years of calling this lovey Iris something else, it is hard to remember to say iris. However, I do not want to misinform young Michael and Emma who have just started to learn about gardening in their first house. Chinese Domestic Iris, Blackberry Iris or Leopard Iris whichever you call it grows well in full sun. Soil should be humus-rich and well-drained. They enjoy lots of water in hot weather, so thrive in Floridas hot, wet summers. They grow best in cold zones 8 to 11.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

In an address at the Disabled American Veterans convention in Orlando, Obama also announced a national plan to guide mental health research, as well as commitments from 250 community colleges and universities to help veterans earn college degrees or get the credentials they need to find jobs. A chief concern for veterans is the backlog of disability claims for compensation for illness and injury caused by military service. After years of military service, you shouldnt have to wait years for the benefits youve earned, Obama said. The number of claims ballooned after Obama made it easier for Vietnam veterans who were exposed to the herbicide Agent Orange to get benefits. Access to benefits also was eased for sufferers of post-traumatic stress disorder and Gulf War veterans afflicted with malaria, Looming matter Overgrown trees threaten neighborA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerHERNANDO These days, Rex DeMeritt and his wife, Carol, spend a lot of their time eyeing a couple of hulking longleaf pines with a precipitous lean toward their house. A third is lying in a portion of their backyard alive and thriving. It fell about five months ago, missing their roofline by about 15 feet. The fallen tree and the others, which are leaning houseward, are sitting on an earthen berm, the result of long-ago pit mining in the neighboring property, according to Rex DeMeritt. Erosion has taken its toll and weakened the root systems of the trees, and now the trees hang over the DeMeritt house like a dark canopy. We are worried all the time. Each time it rains heavily or when our grandchildren are here, we are worried the trees will come down and hurt us or the children, DeMeritt said. He said he has found the neighbors number and called to discuss the potential dangers he is facing and asked for the trees to be cut down, but has met with negative results. He has also called the Citrus County Code Enforcement Division, which sent out investigators twice, but they, too, told him it is a civil matter. And according to DeMeritt, to make matters worse, the family cannot afford to retain an attorney at this time. What am I supposed to do? Wait until I am dead before I can get help? The neighboring property is registered as Half-Ass Ranch LLC and the registered agent is Charles McGee of Fort Pierce. When the Chroniclecontacted McGee, he declined comment, only saying he thought he had a meeting MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleInverness resident Rex DeMeritt says the trees on the property adjacent to his land are dangerously close to his home. He and his wife fear if one falls, it will destroy their home and injure anyone inside. See OBAMA/ Page A7 See LOOMING/ Page A7 CR council to receive waterfront report Monday A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The Crystal River City Councils meeting Monday promises to be heavy on issues as lofty as building heights and the scope and shape of the long-promised bayfront boardwalk to the nature of the next public safety contract. However, late word has it that talks may be forthcoming to address a perceived inequity regarding law enforcement services among city, county and sheriffs office officials. The promise of those talks will cause a recommendation of approval for the 2013-14 contract between the sheriffs office and the city, according to City Manager Andy Houston. At 6 p.m. the council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency, will hear from consultant Tom Kohler of Real Estate Research Consultants Inc. about how to proceed with the citys efforts to establish a flourishing commercial waterfront district. Last April, the CRA board approved a study of a proposed Waterfront Development District. The study is to address everything from what could be acceptable building heights on the commercial waterfront district and how to proceed with the long-sought boardwalk, which is designed to hug the shoreline behind Crackers Restaurant and will wend its way toward the downtown hub on Citrus Avenue. The study also looked at some of the following: The citys current Land Development Code. Determining the best mechanism for moving forward with a Attorney: No conflict representing CMH, TGH in transaction talks MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerWhen Citrus Memorial hospital officials wanted to seek out other private, nonprofit hospitals for a possible transaction, they asked attorney for Jim Kennedys help. Kennedy, with the Tampa law firm Carlton Fields, represents Citrus Memorial Health Foundation as its outside counsel and plays a lead role in the foundations ongoing litigation with the Citrus County Hospital Board. Kennedy also is considered a legal expert in health care in Florida. He counts many hospitals among his clientele. Of the hospitals Kennedy contacted, only one Tampa General Hospital showed enough interest to offer a bid for Citrus Memorial. Tampa General is familiar to Kennedy because it also is one of his clients. Tampa Generals bid, however, was quickly dismissed by the hospital board after hearing presentations from four bidders. Citrus Memorial and Tampa General continued talks. After all, both the foundation and hospital board must agree on the same bidder so the fact that CCHB eliminated Tampa General did not deter Citrus Memorial officials. Kennedy arranged a meeting with Citrus Memorial Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty and his counterpart at Tampa General. See ATTORNEY/ Page A8 See COUNCIL/ Page A8

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Todd Snipes was fired Friday for unprofessional conduct. County officials said Snipes showed horrible judgment made worse during a racially charged atmosphere. Snipes is accused of writing a post on Facebook after George Zimmermans acquittal in the 17-yearolds death that read: Another thug gone. Pull up your pants and be respectful. Bye bye thug r.i.p. Snipes was a Volusia lifeguard for 24 years and a law enforcement officer for 15. An official said Snipes apologized but that his remorse was not in any way proportionate to this damage.From staff and wire reports Page A3SUNDAY, AUGUST 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHe was a hospital director of more than 300 employees for 25 years, but no one knew his secret. James Kennedy was director of New England Memorial Hospital in Stoneham, Mass., and had severe dyslexia. His son, school board member Thomas Kennedy, said his dyslexia did not handicap his father in handling his responsibilities: multimillion dollar budgets, policymaking, human resources and handling purchases for the hospital. James Kennedy died Friday. He was 79. What was unique about my father was he did all of this while hiding from the world that he was illiterate, Thomas said. My father was diagnosed with the severest form of dyslexia.He spent his entire professional life having to overcome things that many people take for granted. His dyslexia was so severe that professors during the 1970s and s were fascinated by his learning strategies. When my father attended business classes at the University of Massachusetts, he took all of his tests orally, Thomas said. His professors were so impressed they did case studies on him and shared the accommodations he used to overcome his disability were perhaps equal to earningtwo doctors degrees. During these studies, three of his four children werediagnosed with dyslexia. Dad would hire intellectually disabled students and had no problems making sure they had opportunities to work at their fullest capabilities, Thomas said. He knew someone with disabilities was more capable sometimes than the professional world. He never wanted me to be ashamed of any challenges that either I had or his workers had, he continued. But it was interesting because he was always nervous (about) people knowing of his challenges. The only people that knew were his secretary, his immediate vice president and the president of the hospital. Thomas said his fathers life lessons have shaped his desire to working with ESE (Exceptional Student Education) students. When I got into office, my dad asked me to start sharing his story with students, he said. So the students could know that they, too, could be successful and they should not let any of their challenges hold them back from their successes in life. Thomass mother, Clarine Kennedy, campaigned in Massachusetts to ensure ESE students received their services. He said he grew up having both an advocate for a mother and an amazing supporter in my dad that pretty much said there is nothing that you can not do. Thomas running for the school board office made his father proud. When I was sworn in, my family stood up there with me, Thomas said. My dad put his hand on the Bible next to mine and recited the oath with me. He heard Sam Himmel say Put your hand on the Bible. Without thinking and being so proud, he just put his hand next to mine. I remember (school board attorney) Wes Bradshaw whispering in my ears, I think we swore your parents in with you. James and Clarine Kennedy moved to Citrus County in 1990. He was an honorably discharged National Guard veteran. He truly was a hero to me, Thomas said. I am proud to be his son. He is a man that I love so dearly. They had four children together: Cherie KennedyMilliron, Cindy KennedySilver, James Kennedy Jr. and Thomas Kennedy. He was an active member of the Hernando Seventhday Adventist Church. The love from the community has been overwhelming,Thomas said. It gives me more reason of why I have fallen in love with our community. I dontknow if I couldve done thisas easily and this has been the hardestthing I have ever had to go through. I feel so blessed to be in Citrus County. Services will be conducted at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16, at Brown Funeral Home in Lecanto. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to Hernando Seventh-day Adventist or Crystal River United Methodist churches food pantries. James Kennedy passes away at 79 School board members father moved to county in 1990; services Friday NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHERNANDODuring the height of the Vietnam War, Larry Tropf voluntarily enlisted in the Army and served two tours in Vietnam as part of the 713th Artillery. I left Vietnam on a stretcher, he said. After a four-year military hitch he returned home to Pittsburgh, Pa. But once a veteran, always a veteran. Now in his mid-60s, last year he had a hip replacement and double bypass heart surgery and the Citrus County Veterans Service Foundation helped him through that tough time. Founded in 2004, the not-forprofit foundation has provided about $30,000 a year in financial assistance to honorably discharged Citrus County veterans or their surviving spouses who need urgent, emergency help. The most common requests are for help with paying electric bills, rent or gas money to get to the V.A. clinic in Gainesville or to a job interview. Grants are capped at $500. Requests go through Sam Dininno, Citrus Countyveterans service officer, who disburses the funds. Back when Royce Carter was the county veterans service officer, veterans would come in all the time needing emergency financial assistance, and, of course, the county doesnt provide that, explained Curt Ebitz, the foundations founder and current vice president. Royce would call individual veterans in the community who might have the means and the will to make a donation and took care of it that way. The foundation was created so more veterans could be helped. Last year was a bad year, Tropf said. We were backed up on some medical bills, so I went to them and they helped me out. That $200 made a difference. As a war-injured veteran, Tropf knows firsthand the difficulties veterans face, and he especially feels for the veterans who are on their second and third combat tours in Afghanistan. Its on your mind, what youve been through, he said, but these kids are coming home and being sent right back. The strain it must put on them. Thats why theres so much PTSD, he said, referring to post-traumatic stress disorder. Ebitz said the foundation and the work it does to help veterans has gone largely unrecognized, and they want to get the word out. Weve given out over a quarter-million dollars, he said. The ninth annual Citrus County Veterans Foundation Golf Tournament will take place Sept. 7 at Citrus Hills. For information, visit the foundations website at www.citrusvf.org.

Birthday Take advantage of any opportunities to increase your knowledge in your chosen field of endeavor in the coming months. The effort will prove worth it in the long run. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Though you are likely to be an old softy today, to achieve anything of significance, you might have to be a bit more thickskinned than usual. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It isnt likely you will appreciate being told what to do and when and how to do it, so its best to avoid associates who always try to impose their ways on you. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Someone you know socially could turn out to be a pretty tough customer when engaged in business. Limit your expectations about getting any great deals. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If youre negotiating a matter of considerable importance, it might be wise to have a capable someone serve as a buffer. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If some of your assignments and responsibilities are being rearranged, dont volunteer to take on more than you can handle. Be realistic. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If the root cause of your discomfort has yet to be eradicated, try to avoid a group in which certain members make you feel uneasy. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Dont rely on Lady Luck to bail you out of choppy waters. Instead of rooting for you, she might help others trip you up even more. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Forgo any temptations to boast about or exaggerate your accomplishments. Instead of looking good in the eyes of others, you might do the opposite. Aries (March 21-April 19) Financial mistakes could have a larger price than youre prepared to pay, so you may need to be careful when it comes to your money. Dont take any risks. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Usually, you appreciate the value of compromise and the wisdom of making concessions. Today, however, you might dig in on an issue that moves you. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Go ahead and extend a helping hand to someone, but dont let a clever manipulator use your gesture against you. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Your thinking might not be as clear as usual. For some reason, you might treat serious matters too indifferently.

Its roster of participants is impressive: former President Bill Clinton, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer three Baldwins, Dustin Hoffman, Paul Simon, Jackson Pollock and Kurt Vonnegut to name just a few. Organizers of the annual East Hampton Artists & Writers softball games are a little fuzzy about when they got their start most peg it to around 1948, when artists including Pollock, Willem de Kooning and others organized casual pickup games on summer afternoons in their yards. Today they have become one of the premier events in the Hamptons, New Yorks summer resort for the haves and havemores. Ive played against some of the greatest house painters in the world, joked reporter Carl Bernstein, making a common, good-natured accusation that his opponents pepper their rosters with ringers to gain a competitive advantage. This years game, billed as the 65th and slated for Aug. 17, is expected to draw thousands to watch writers such as Bernstein, Richard Reeves and Mike Lupica play artists including Domingo Zapata and Eric Ernst and actors Josh Charles, Lori Singer and others. With the support of corporate sponsors and deep-pocketed donors, the game is expected to raise $100,000 for eastern Long Island charities.Avengers strike at Disney expoANAHEIM, Calif.

Publicist Nicole Perna said the Look At Me Now singer suffered a non-epileptic seizure early Friday morning while he was working in a Los Angeles studio. A doctor examined the 24year-old, but he wasnt hospitalized. Perna said what she referred to as the continued onslaught of unfounded legal matters and the nonstop negativity contributed to Browns illness. The singer has been on felony probation since the 2009 beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna. A judge revoked his probation last month and ordered a hearing in a May 12 hit-and-run case. In February, authorities investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean did not press charges.

He recalled that she told him: Never forget that you got to see Kennedy the night before he died. When he was 18, Beef read that the burial plot next to Oswalds was available. He bought it for $17.50 down and 16 monthly payments of $10. Beef said he has often asked himself why he wanted it. It meant something to me in life, is the only answer he can come up with. Beef moved to New York, married, had two children and divorced. He did some freelance comedy writing using the name Nick Beef, a moniker he came up with while joking around with a friend. His mother died in late 1996 and he returned to Texas to arrange her funeral. He told the Timesthat during his stay, he visited his burial plot and decided to buy a gravestone with the exact dimensions as Oswalds. He told the cemetery official to inscribe it Nick Beef. He has no plans to ever be buried there. He said he would prefer to be cremated. Associated PressNEW YORK For years, curiosity seekers visiting the Fort Worth, Texas, grave of Lee Harvey Oswald have wondered about the simple headstone next door, marked Nick Beef. It turns out Nick Beef is alive and living in New York.The New York Timesreported the 56-year-old man who uses that name purchased the cemetery plot next to Oswalds in 1975 and had the granite marker placed there in 1997. Beef, born Patric Abedin, now lives in Manhattanand calls himself a nonperforming performance artist. On Nov. 21, 1963, President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, landed at the former Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth as part of a two-day Texas tour. Beef, then 6 years old, was sitting on the shoulders of a military police officer in the crowd when the first couple passed just a few feet away. Oswald shot Kennedy the next day. Young Patric used to sometimes visit Oswalds grave with his mother. Carl Balyeat, 70INVERNESSCarl L.

REX C. CURRY/The New York TimesA headstone marking the grave of Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated President John F. Kennedy in 1963, lies next to a marker inscribed with Nick Beef on Aug. 6 at Shannon Rose Hill Cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas. Associated PressKITTERY, Maine Tom Mader remembers the USS Miami when it was a metal hull filled with shipbuilders putting the final touches on the nuclearpowered submarine at Electric Boat in Connecticut. He was the skipper when the submarine was commissioned in 1990. As a plank owner a Navy ships original crew member he cant help but be disappointed that the firedamaged submarine is going to be cut up for scrap instead of going back to sea to serve its country. I can speak for all of the plank owners: Its emotional for us to see one of the ships that we helped test and build and put to sea be laid to rest, the retired Navy captain said from his home in Benicia, Calif. Destined for premature retirement, the USS Miami will have an asterisk next to its name when its removed from the Navys rolls of active warships because an arsonist caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, effectively sinking the ship. The blaze started in May 2012 when a shipyard worker set fire to a box of rags and grew into an inferno that took 100 firefighters 12 days to douse. The submarine based in Groton, Conn., suffered severe damage to forward compartments including living quarters, a command and control center, and the torpedo room. Seven people were hurt. The worker who set the fire said he was suffering from anxiety and wanted to leave work early. Hes serving a 17year prison sentence. The most sickening part to me is that we didnt lose this submarine due to enemy attack or terrorism. We lost it due to an American citizen wanting to leave work, said David Padgett, a plank owner living in Mystic, Conn. She was a good ship. She had a lot of good years left in her. With the Navy short of submarines in particular, the Pentagon wanted to repair the 23-year-old submarine and send it back to sea for five more deployments. But the $450 million repair grew to $700 million when new damage was discovered. The high cost, along with sequestration, combined to scuttle the repairs. Despite marker, Nick Beef alive and well The USS Miami arrives in port April 26, 2004, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Pentagon wanted to repair the submarine and send it back to sea, but $450 million in repairs grew to $700 million, so instead it will be removed from service.Associated Press For vets, Miamis retirement too soon, even if appropriate

West Nile virus or other infectious diseases. The backlog is shrinking due to some aggressive steps taken by the Department of Veterans Affairs, including requiring claims processors in its 56 regional benefits offices to work overtime and moving from a manual to a computerized system to help speed the judgment of claims, administration officials said. About 780,000 claims are pending. About 496,000 are considered backlogged after the 20 percent reduction Obama highlighted, down from 611,000 at the end of March, said White House press secretary Jay Carney. A claim is considered backlogged if it has been in the system for 125 days, or roughly four months. Even with that progress, Obama acknowledged the amount of work still needed to eliminate the backup by 2015 as VA Secretary Eric Shinseki has promised. Today I can report that we are not where we need to be, but we are making progress, Obama said. So after years when the backlog kept growing, finally the backlog is shrinking. The president also announced the release of a comprehensive national plan to improve the ability to prevent, diagnose and treat PTSD and traumatic brain injuries and mental health issues earlier and better, and to reduce suicides, according to a briefing paper the White House released Saturday before the president spoke. Beyond the claims issue, Republican lawmakers have started to hammer the VA on the issue of patient safety. A congressional hearing in Atlanta this past week focused on poor patient care linked to four deaths. Another hearing is scheduled for next month in Pittsburgh, where five veterans died as a result of a Legionnaires disease outbreak in 2011-12. Several dozen protesters greeted Obama as he arrived at the hotel. Some held signs that said Kenyan Go Home, Impeach Obama, and Obama Lies. Obama met privately with DAV members before the speech, the White House said. Afterward, he headed to Marthas Vineyard, Mass., for a family vacation. planned with DeMeritt in a week to work things out. Unfortunately, said Jenette Collins, the head of the countys land development division, the county does not have any laws addressing something like this. It is a private matter, Collins said. Jackie Gorman, the city of Crystal Rivers planning director, said they, too, run into similar issues involving trees and offered the following tips to diffuse such situations: Reach out to the neighbors, but do it in non-confrontational manner even offer to help take down the tree. Make them understand that it is better to resolve it this way than to wait until later when someone gets hurt, Gorman said. Write a letter to them and their insurance company, if you know it, and explain what is going on. Gorman said insurance companies generally understand the liabilities entailed in these kinds of situations, especially if there is the potential for people to get badly hurt. She said the DeMeritts could also inform their insurance company, which can easily reach out to the neighbors insurer. Getting rid of trees is not cheap anymore. Gone are the days when tree cutters will come cut your tree for the lumber, Gorman added. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

The eventual result was the hospital foundation board voting to give Tampa General until mid-September to submit another bid to include financial incentives such a capital investment. Kennedy and Citrus Memorial officials say there is no conflict with Kennedy representing both Citrus Memorial and Tampa General. Its not a conflict until theres a decision, and then the conflict kicks in and we address it, said Inverness attorney Clark Stillwell, Citrus Memorials general counsel. Stillwell referred to an agreement signed by Kennedy and hospital officials that states Kennedy will not represent Citrus Memorial if both hospitals sign a transaction letter of intent. If that happens, the agreement states, Kennedy will represent Tampa General and Stillwell or another attorney will represent Citrus Memorial in negotiating a final contract. Kennedy said the conflict letter addresses only the transaction issue. His law firm will continue to represent Citrus Memorial in its legal issues with the hospital board regardless of the transactions outcome. Kennedy said it isnt unusual to represent two non-competing parties, especially in the limited field of health care. This seems very normal to me, he said. Stillwell said he has experience representing both parties in a transaction. Asked to name an example, he said he represented both Citrus Publishing, which publishes the Citrus County Chronicle, and landowner Stan Olsen when the newspaper wanted to buy land to expand its printing plant. Our firm was involved on both sides of the transaction, he said. Both parties signed a waiver, the deal closed and it was successful. Kennedy attended the July 10 hospital board meeting where trustees heard presentations from four bidders Tampa General, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Health Management Associates (HMA) and RegionalCare Hospital Partners. After the presentations, trustees voted to eliminate Tampa General from consideration because it offered an affiliation with no cash in the transaction. It promised an undetermined amount of capital investment; however, as a nonprofit, it would continue to receive a property tax exemption just as Citrus Memorial enjoys. Since then, trustees said they would listen to a renewed offer from Tampa General. They did not oppose the foundations vote to give Tampa General until September to update its bid. Along with seeking another bid from Tampa General, the foundation said it also wanted to consider a letter of intent with HCA. Kennedy said he was disappointed with the trustees initial decision to eliminate Tampa General. I thought the not-for-profit participant would be a good fit for the process, he said. The hospitals share a similar vision and values. Tampa General has a long tradition of serving the poor. master site development plan for the district. Recommendations for encouraging incentives for private investment within the district. Recommendations for improving public access to the area. Following the CRA meeting, the council will have its regular meeting at 7 p.m., at which the issue of equity regarding what the city pays for law enforcement services is going to be raised. The citys contract with the sheriffs office for policing services in the next year has been held up as officials tried to work out differences. The way Houston sees it, residents of Crystal River are paying 3.914 mills or $291.40 for law enforcement services. He says $130 of that amount or 1.3 mills is collected by the county for road patrol. That is patrol, Houston contends, residents do not benefit from because the city has had a contract with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for enhanced services, which includes patrol officers, since 2008. Houston wants the cities to be excused from paying their portion to the county. We already have law enforcement services because of our contract. We should not have to pay for service that is going to county residents and we are not getting here in the city, Houston added. City officials tried to make their case to the sheriffs office and county officials. The city wanted the county to introduce a Municipal Services Taxing Unit for road patrol in which the city would be exempted, but county officials jettisoned that idea. City officials then tried to get the sheriffs office to trim its contract. Commander Buddy Grant of the sheriffs office said the contract between his agency and city calls for enhanced services and that is what the agency is delivering. Any reductions in the contract, he added, will have to mean corresponding reductions in the services. If we give them a break on the contract, but continue with the enhanced services, that would not be fair to the other residents of the county, Grant said. He said the agency is not a taxing authority, which therefore makes the issue something the county and city should work out. But County Commissioners Dennis Damato and J.J. Kenney said the matter is between the sheriffs office and the city because it was the city that wanted enhanced services and willingly entered into a contract with the sheriffs office. If they are not happy with the contract, they should talk to the sheriffs office about that contract, but the money they are paying to the county for road patrol is because the citys residents are residents of the county, Damato said. Thursday, Houston said he talked to Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and County Administrator Brad Thorpe and both are amenable to sitting down in the future to come to an understanding. The sheriffs office said Dawsy is going to try to broker a deal between the county and city. Houston told the Chroniclehe would recommend to the city council to go ahead and OK the sheriffs office contract for the upcoming year. The city council also will: Hear the latest crime numbers from the sheriffs offices west-side commander Capt. Danny Linhart. Get an annual report from Janet Mulligan, chairwoman of the citys Waterfronts Advisory Board. Consider approval of a measure to reimburse Crystal River Fire Department volunteer firefighters who reside outside the city limits the amount of the county municipal services benefit unit fire fee. Thirteen of the 16 firefighters live outside city lines. Consider approval to name the boardwalk currently under construction at the Academy of Environmental Science property as the Gary Maidhof Walk to Nature. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

CARLOSFRIAS The Palm Beach PostWEST PALM BEACH Maybe a horse kicked him. Maybe he got his leg caught in a door. The only thing Renee Gumbs knew when she got her hands back on the Great Dane puppy she had sold to a couple on a farm in California was that his right rear leg was shattered, and his life was in danger. Enzo would never be a show dog, not now. But the bigger question was whether she would have to put him to sleep. As late as a decade ago, it would have been no question at all: Enzo would have died. An injury that severe and the cost to try to repair it was beyond most peoples means. But today, technology and disposable income have met at a crossroads. You dont even think about it. You just call and schedule the surgery, Gumbs said. Nowadays, anything you can do for a person, you can do for an animal. About $5,000 and months of rehab yes, rehab, in a pool and on a treadmill later, Enzo is the spoiled, beloved pride of this Palm Beach Gardens Great Dane breeder. And although Gumbs has the means the guesthouse and three-car garage of her Intracoastal home have been converted into air-conditioned kennels, complete with fullsize beds and a staff of seven to care for her dogs average families are also taking advantage of medical advances. Because dogs and cats arent just pets anymore. Theyre members of the family. Nationally, pets are living longer, according to statistics by Banfield Pet Hospitals. The average dog lives 11 years 11.3 years in Florida, according to information from more than 2 million dogs seen in their hospitals last year. Cats, which live 12.1 years on average nationally, have an 11.8-year lifespan in Florida. Veterinary medicine has changed over the years, and its driven by public demand, no question about it, said Dr. Robert Roy, who three years ago built a $7 million, 33,000-square-foot facility for Palm Beach Veterinary Specialists that is one of a handful popping up across the state to give pets humanquality care. These specialty pet hospitals dwarf most human clinics. Veterinary cardiologists perform openheart surgery, oncologists treat cancers with chemotherapy and radiation, orthopedists repair knees and joints, even dermatologists and ophthalmologists treat pets for skin and eye disorders. Ten years ago is caveman medicine compared to what we can do today, said Dr. Ken Simmons of Lake Worths Simmons Veterinary Hospital. My clients are people with furry family members, and they come in expecting that their pet is going to get the kind of care they would expect for their kids dermatology, gynecology. They want it all. Enzo the Great Dane got his knee reconstructed by Roy, whose clinic looks like a satellite human hospital, complete with a staff of more than 85 people, including 20 specialty veterinarians and radiologists. In his facility, Roy has installed a pacemaker in a beagle, overseen a dogs cataract surgery, and directed chemotherapy for cats. The occasional exotics come through the doors, from iguanas to turtles and parrots. But a nearly endless stream of dogs and cats with advanced medical needs keeps the staff working 24 hours a day. Its really a comprehensive facility for pets, said Roy, 55. From the outside, on the corner of Kirk Road and Forest Hill Boulevard, it looks like a medical campus, lined with palm trees and neutral stucco walls. And even through the sliding glass doors it looks like any human hospital, with dark wood, granite, cool fluorescent lighting and generic furniture, and the smell only of disinfectant. The hospital is sprawling: Theres an auditorium for lectures, four operating rooms, a human-caliber MRI machine, a human CAT scan machine for actual cats. High-tech Xray machines give instant results on iPads. Theyve done arthroscopic surgery and regularly do open-heart and brain surgery to remove tumors. In the fall, theyll add a linear particle accelerator, so the vet oncologists will have the latest technology to blast cancers with radiation as well as chemotherapy. Pets are such an integral part of peoples lives down here, said Michele Tucker, who oversees the medical operations and has worked for Roy for 12 years. They have a different perspective of a pet within a family, and thats why we can have a facility like this. For those who travel across the state so their pets can be treated here, the hospital has a family room with a pull-out bed, flat-screen television and a private entrance. Outside, theres a memorial park where owners who have to make end-of-life decisions for their pet can have them euthanized outdoors, under the blanket of nature, rather than the cold interior of a hospital. In short: Now, theres almost nothing they cant do to treat a sick pet like a sick person. Associated PressMIAMI BEACH The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will conduct an independent review of the investigation into the death of a teenager who died after being shocked with a Taser by police. FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said Saturday the agency will review the Miami Beach Police Departments investigation into the death of 18-year-old Israel Hernandez-Llach. Miami Beach officials and the teens family requested the review. I have complete confidence in the integrity and capacity of the Miami Beach Police Department to conduct a fair and thorough investigation, Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales said. But the role of the FDLE will provide further assurance to the public of the thoroughness and transparency of the investigation. Hernandez-Llach was a graffiti artist known as Reefa. Police said they spotted him spray-painting a shuttered fast food restaurant in Miami Beach early Tuesday. He then allegedly led police on a foot chase, ignoring their orders to stop. Police said he was shocked with a Taser once in the chest and then showed signs of distress. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died. Plessinger said the FDLE will review and advise Miami Beach authorities if there is anything they note police conducting the investigation need to look into. Hernandez-Llachs family members, teachers and friends said the teen was a talented artist who had works displayed in galleries and museums around South Florida.

ALLENG. BREED Associated PressArmy Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan admits pulling out a pistol, shouting Allahu akbar (God is great) and opening fire on unarmed people, killing 13 of them. All, he says, in an effort to stop them from going to Afghanistan and killing his fellow Muslims. Concluding he was on the wrong side in Americas war, he told jurors at his courtmartial that he switched sides. So, victims and others are demanding, why is the November 2009 attack at Fort Hood being tried as a case of workplace violence and not as an act of terror? Military law expert Scott L. Silliman says the answer is simple. Because the Uniform Code of Military Justice does not have a punitive article for terrorism. They really didnt have an option, says Silliman, director emeritus of Duke Universitys Center on Law, Ethics and National Security in Durham, N.C. He was an active-duty officer. The crime occurred on a military installation. ... It was obvious he was going to face a court-martial. Victims of the shooting rampage filed a lawsuit last year over the administrations decision to treat the incident as workplace violence. They say that designation has robbed them of benefits and made them ineligible to receive the Purple Heart, awarded to service members wounded in battle. On Monday, the staff of the magazine National Review launched a petition drive directed at Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, arguing that the Army psychiatrist should be tried as an enemy combatant for what they consider an Act of Terror. By not designating this event as such an act, it disrespects the lives of the 13 who lost their lives that day, and dozens more who were injured, the petition reads. This is outrageous and I call on you to change the official designation now before proceedings against Hasan go further. While Silliman understands the outrage, he says transferring the case to civil courts where a terror charge could attach was just not possible. It would have been totally unprecedented to have that sort of thing occur, says Silliman, who has served as senior attorney at two large military installations and three major Air Force commands. Now, if the crime had occurred off the post, then there might have been what we call concurrent jurisdiction between the civilian authorities and the military authorities. Why cant the administration call this an act of terror without charging Hasan as a terrorist? According to a widely quoted Pentagon position paper opposing Purple Hearts for the victims that would allow the defense to argue that Hasan cannot receive a fair trial because a branch of government has indirectly declared that Major Hasan is a terrorist that he is criminally culpable. Reed Rubinstein, one of the attorneys representing a number of the shooting victims and their families, calls that argument disingenuous. The National Counterterrorism Center and State Department both counted the incident among terror attacks that year, he notes. The White House and Department of Defense have balked, he argues, because too many people didnt heed warning signs that Hasan was becoming increasingly radical leading up to his deployment to Afghanistan. The truth of the matter is, it comes down to politics, the Washington attorney says. It comes down to covering up the political correctness that was the proximate cause of this attack in the first instance. Rubinstein is not calling for a terrorism charge but argues the government could administratively rule this was an act of terror so his clients can qualify for more benefits and the Purple Heart, which comes with its own set of recognitions and privileges. Hasan is representing himself during the court-martial. Because he faces the death penalty, military law precluded him from entering a guilty plea. But he conceded in his opening statement Tuesday, as he has previously, that he did the shooting. Military prosecutors could have added a civilian charge of terrorism, says Geoffrey Corn, a retired lieutenant colonel and former military lawyer. But he argues that would have added an unnecessary layer of complexity with little, if any, benefit. Its never been done in a military court before, says Corn, a professor at the South Texas College of Law. Was he motivated by a terrorist agenda? Certainly. Will they present that evidence? Certainly. But the crimes he committed were premeditated murder and attempted premeditated murder. Corn says it would be difficult to make the case for Hasan as an enemy combatant. While Hasan may have been inspired by alQaida and even had contact with known terror suspects, it does not appear he received orders from the group, Corn says. Rubinstein terms the governments refusal to call the shooting incident a terrorist attack for purposes of awarding benefits a kick in the teeth to the victims. They have to hear about workplace violence, he says. Theyre told that what happened to them was no big deal. Pay no attention to the fact that he was a jihadist. Never mind that we knew and the FBI knew. But his career, because of his ethnicity and his religion, was more important to us than your lives. Forget all that. Government attorneys have asked a federal judge to postpone the civil case, which seeks to reclassify the incident so as to make combat-related pay and other benefits available to the victims, until after the courtmartial and post-trial processing are completed. That could take up to nine months. Victim Shawn Manning estimates he has lost $2,000 a month in pay and benefits because of the decision to classify the injuries as resulting from workplace violence rather than combat or terrorist-related. Had his injuries been classified that way, the military would have paid the difference between his civilian and reserve salary, offered him better medical benefits and granted him greater disability payments. And Hasan is still collecting his major pay, growls Manning, who now works as a civilian mental health specialist at Fort Lewis, Wash. Thats not correct, agrees former Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, who was shot seven times and still carries one slug in his back. He and Manning spoke to The Associated Press before a military judges order this week not to discuss the case. Silliman says that, too, is the way the military system operates. Remember, he is innocent until determined otherwise, he says. Hes going to be drawing full pay as a United States Army major ... until a sentence is awarded in the case and that sentence is approved by the convening authority.

Irecently saw a show on TV about cryogenics the science of freezing your brain after you die so that someday, when they find the cure for whatever killed you, they can insert your brain into a new body and you can pick up where you left off. Riding that motorcycle. Im not a doctor or a scientist, but it seems to me that there are two big problems with this idea, even if they ever figure out how to do it. One: What body are they going to put your frozen brain into? Maybe Ive missed something, but dont most bodies already have a brain in them? Are they going to take out my brain so they can put in yours? That doesnt sound fair, even if they freeze my brain to reinstall later. Excuse me, new brain, but I was here first. And if they use clones, well, it seems to me the clone might have a few things to say about it, like Youre not taking my brain! It seems wed be back to square one theyd have to take out one brain to put in another. And, really, is your brain that much more wonderful than anyone elses? Now, there is some debate about this. Half the time Sue doesnt think I have a brain, but other times she wonders if I only have half a brain. Either way, Im pretty sure she wouldnt pay to have it frozen. Shed rather spend the money on HBO or Starz or Netflix. It would be cheaper and certainly more entertaining. And what would I do while my brains frozen? What if it takes 50 years, or 100, to cure me? Would I have to answer 50 years worth of email when I woke up? What if they put me in a body thats worse than the one I had when I died? Will I have to learn how to use an even smarter phone than I have now? What will a house cost 50 years from now a hundred million dollars? Where will I make that kind of money? As a greeter at Space Mart? The second thing that bothers me is the freezing part. I drank a milkshake a little too fast a few years ago and it hurt like crazy. A brain freeze. So what if having your brain really frozen, really hurts? How are you going to tell anyone? Your mouth, along with the rest of your body, was burned to ashes and thrown into the ocean off of Maui or someplace. So they wake you up 50 years later and youre out of work, your wife is now married to Walt Disney and your head hurts like someone has worked you over with a nail gun. People will be telling jokes that you wont get because you havent seen the holograms theyve been watching, and you wonder who to vote for in our new 57-party political system. Youll have to learn how to text (or whatever replaces it), something you havent even done in this life. Then theres the health issue. Have you ever taken a steak out of the freezer thats been accidentally overlooked for, oh, six or seven years? Would you eat it? I would, but would a normal person like you eat it? Most likely youre thinking, why take a chance? Well, what do you think your brain will look like after its been on ice for 50 or 100 years? Maybe the cryogenic freezer lost power once every 15 years for a couple of hours. Maybe a little bit longer. You no longer qualify for a new body, because you left a few IQ points on the freezer wrap. So they put what was left of your brain in some teenagers cellphone, where you get to correct his spelling mistakes all day long because its the one job left where humans are better than machines.Contact Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks.com. Do you remember a very interesting and different car from the 1960s the Chevrolet Corvair? It was a compact produced for the 1960 to 1969 model years. It was the only American-designed, mass-produced passenger car to feature a rearmounted, air-cooled engine. The Corvairs legacy was affected by controversy started by Ralph Nader regarding its safety due to handling issues. However, the National Highway Safety Administration subsequently had a safety review conducted and concluded the Corvairs possessed no greater potential for loss of control than their contemporaries in extreme situations. The Corvair faced competition from the Ford Mustang, Chevys own Camaro and other pony cars. It had been costly to produce, yet was not offered at a premium price; not a highprofit earner for Chevrolet. Although almost 2 million Corvairs were produced during its 10-year run, you dont see too many of them around today. You can see a number of these amazing cars in a local car club for Corvair enthusiasts the Nature Coast Corvair Club. The club was started in January 1998 by a few local Corvair owners. Their first meeting was attended by 19 people and several of them joined the club that night. Since they had enough members for sanctioning by the Corvair Society of America (CORSA), they applied for and received sanctioning by CORSA in June 1998. They currently have 37 members in the club who own 17 Corvairs from 1963 through 1969. The vehicles are two-doors, four-doors, hard-tops, convertibles, turbos and a customized Corvair Hot Rod purchased from California. Several of the members got together and built an autocross racing Corvair, which has taken first place in St. Augustine several times. There are also members in the club with orphan vehicles (nonCorvairs) such as Ford, Studebaker, Chevy and Buick, as orphan owners are also permitted to join the club. They welcome anyone who is interested in preservation of classic cars to become members. The club holds an annual car and truck show with proceeds benefiting local charities. There were more than 160 classic cars older than 25 years at their show this past March in Inverness. Kathy Neumann, club treasurer, was kind enough to provide the information about the club for this article. Kathy got into cars when she was 12 years old. She and her family have been involved with vehicles, such as go-karts, classic cars, drag racing, motorcycles, stock cars and especially Corvairs for many years. They currently have a 1966 Corvair Corsa Turbo convertible, but have had as many as five Corvairs at one time. In 1983, Kathy and her husband, Herb, moved their upholstery business from Long Island, N.Y., to Inverness, which is now owned and operated by their two sons. If you own a Corvair or a classic car 25 years or older and want to join the club, call Club President Ted Rockentine at 352-8601205, George Neumann at 352-302-9058 or Kathy at 352-344-4210. Car joke: A motorist accidentally hit and killed a calf that was crossing the road. Feeling guilty about the incident, he asked the farmer how much the animal was worth. About $300 today, replied the farmer, but in six years it would have been worth $900. So realistically, Im $900 out of pocket. Thats what I want as compensation. The motorist wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. Here is a check for $900, he said. Its postdated six years from today.

A12SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEVETERANS The Citrus County Veterans Services Department is looking for veterans who have recently transitioned from the military (or returning reservist from tours of active duty) to Citrus County within the past two years. The office will schedule a seminar to discuss benefits and solicit ideas. Call 352-527-5915 to reserve a seat. For more information about the Citrus County Veterans Office, visit www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/ commserv/vets.Of SPECIAL NOTE Ive been asked several times this past month if a veteran must be disabled in order to register with the Veterans Administration and make use of the medical benefits offered at their clinics and labs. I personally doublechecked with the VA Clinic on Marc Knighton Court in Lecanto and confirmed that a veteran need not be disabled in order to register with the VA for benefits, including medical and laboratory services. There are several facets of this registration and these benefits vets and their families need to be aware of. First, a veteran does need proof of other than dishonorable discharge from military service, also known as a DD-214, which will have the veterans name, personal identifying information, rank(s), dates and locations of service, as well as other information which might include merits, ribbons or medals earned during the tour of service. Some veterans may have more than one DD-214, containing differing information, depending on the type and location(s) of service. Try to have all the applicable paperwork when you register with the VA to avoid a delay in the enrollment process. Somewhere between 30 days to a few months later, a letter should arrive in the mail announcing acceptance into the program, along with a welcome packet with names and phone numbers of resources. Some time after that, an appointment will be scheduled with a VA physician for an initial exam and a lab for a blood analysis. A photo ID card will be produced, which the veteran will need to present often, so keep it in a safe but easily accessible place. This card has a magnetic strip on the back, so be cautious about damaging that strip. Replacing this card is time-consuming, difficult and better if avoided. VA benefits can include medical examinations, prescriptions, eye exams and glasses (some frames may bring an additional cost). Pulmonary, cardiac and blood work are also provided through the VA, as is hospitalization and nursing home care. The nursing home need not be a VA facility; as a matter of fact, the HPH Hospice House in Lecanto is part of the VA system and qualifies under these benefits. Demographic forms and a means test are completed periodically, which gives the veteran the option to reveal financial information including assets and bank balances. If the veterans total assets are below a certain amount, then there is no co-pay for services rendered or for prescriptions provided by mail from the pharmacy at the Gainesville location. If a veteran declines to reveal financial information or lists income and assets of more than a certain amount, then a co-pay is determined based on the amounts involved. It is worth the time to read through this form and see what money you can save. Travel beneficiary reimbursement is another benefit that many dont know about or forget to file. This is a per-mile reimbursement (typically lower than the federally determined rate), and it is listed as one-way. The key is that if you go to the clinic, for instance, and then go back home, that counts as two one-way trips. There is a deductible that must be met before the whole amount may be awarded, but there is no minimum number of miles to qualify for this claim. There are deductibles to be met and other details which Ill include in next months column. Ill also discuss the partial funeral expense reimbursement. Although Id had it explained to me by VA representatives and I had read it in the printed information brochure provided by the VA that the veterans disability was not a requirement for this, Ive since seen a letter from the VA stating that no reimbursement shall be forthcoming because the veteran in question was not disabled. The letter also states there is no indication of representation by any VA Service Officer, in spite of our local veterans service officer filing the claim for via the computer in his office. Ill be investigating this and will provide an update in my future columns. See you on Sept. 7 at our first yard sale of the season, and Sept. 11 for more on these issues.Barbara L.

Associated PressMIDLOTHIAN, Va. When a stray bullet pierced the top of Brendon Mackeys head, the 7-yearold was on his way to a July Fourth fireworks celebration with his dad and other family members. He died the next day in a Richmond hospital, a bullet lodged at the base of his skull, sparking a methodical, door-to-door search for a most elusive killer: celebratory gunfire. Police believe someone fired a shot into the air within a 5,200-foot radius of Brendon. Witnesses heard a little pop, then Bryan Mackey looked back and saw his sons limp body on the ground, Chesterfield County Police Lt. Randy Horowitz said. Forensic experts at the state crime lab have identified the bullet as a .40caliber class, and the likely weapon has been narrowed to five types of handguns, Horowitz said. Theyve appealed for anyone who fired a gun into the dimming night sky or neighbors who might have witnessed someone doing so to come forward. No one has. To date, investigators have knocked on doors at about half of the 1,800 residences within the likely range of where the shot was fired, with no luck. The area of the canvass includes a dense collection of homes and townhouses, many tucked in woods, and parts around the Swift Creek Reservoir in this fast-growing suburb west of Richmond. Marie Harris, who played the board game Battleship with her son before he headed off to the fireworks, said Brendon was a high-energy boy who loved animals. She described how he was just beginning to take an interest in girls, and had started to tame a cowlick with hair gel. We were waiting for him to bloom, to catch up with the other kids, she said of her slight, thin son. Harris has a simple desire: an apology. That would mean the most, and I would want it to be sincere, she said.Against the oddsBy any reckoning, Brendons death defied mathematical odds. He was among thousands of people headed to the reservoir for a fireworks show and was walking on a winding road under a thick canopy of trees. Of the more than 10,000 U.S. gun deaths annually, there are no comprehensive statistics on how many people are killed by random gunfire, according to an FBI spokesman. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokeswoman said that agency, too, was unaware of any U.S. data on the incidence of stray gunfire, but cited a Puerto Rican report that underscores that a firearm aimed into the skies can return to Earth with enough force to maim and kill. That study found 18 people were injured and one killed during 2004 New Years Eve celebrations in Puerto Rico, based on an analysis by several island agencies. A widely cited study by doctors at a medical center in Los Angeles between 1985 and 1992 identified 118 injuries believed to have come from bullets falling from the sky nationwide.More deathsOn July Fourth, Brendons death was not the only fatality related to random gunfire in the U.S. In Oakland, a 23-year-old man was found shot and died two days later. Four men have been charged. In St. Petersburg, Fla., a 38year-old man was injured by a stray bullet. No one is charged. In the greater Miami area, law enforcement hammers home the message with a No Stray Bullets campaign ahead of July Fourth. A 5-year-old Miami girl died in January 1997 after being hit by a stray bullet. Despite the campaign, a teenager was shot in the head this year during a celebration of the Miami Heats NBA championship win. He survived. Firing weapons into the sky is a global issue and an accepted expression of celebration in parts of the Middle East and Latin America, among other regions of the world. In Phoenix, officials have been aggressive in attempting to curb random gunfire, which police attribute in part to a Latin American population that settled in the area. The problem was driven home in June 1999, when 14-yearold Shannon Smith was killed by a bullet fired into the air more than a mile away. She was struck in the head while talking on the phone in her backyard. Her parents worked with elected officials, and one year later, the careless discharge of a firearm within the city was elevated from a misdemeanor to a felony. Phoenix Police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Smiths killer hasnt been found. You dont know when you shoot a gun where that bullets going to come down, said Thompson, a 30-year police veteran. Some people believe it goes to the moon, it just goes into space. Thompson said the tougher law was just a first step. He said education and reaching out to various communities have been critical. The campaign has been effective, Thompson said. He cites figures that reports of New Years Eve shots have declined from nearly 1,000 in 1998-99 to 271 in 2009-10.Brendons LawIn Virginia, state Sen. Henry L. Marsh III is proposing Brendons Law to stiffen penalties for people who randomly fire guns into the air and for injuries or deaths that result. Marsh attended Brendons funeral and has reached out to his mother. Marsh said the proposed legislation is still being researched. It would make it clear that random, celebratory shooting is a crime, he said. NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 A13 MANAGERS SPECIALS 000FQEK Hwy. 44 W.

Beauty queen faces feloniesSALT LAKE CITY Prosecutors filed charges of bomb possession Friday against a recently crowned Utah beauty pageant winner. Kendra McKenzie Gill was arrested last weekend with three accomplices for what one described as a prank. All four face the same set of four felony charges, prosecutor Blake Nakamura said Friday. The 18-year-olds were arrested Saturday after driving around neighborhoods and allegedly tossing plastic bottles filled with caustic chemicals at people they knew. Nobody was injured. Felony bomb possession is punishable by 1 to 15 years in prison.NTSB: Pilot in crash wasnt certifiedNOXEN, Pa. The pilot of a helicopter that crashed in rural Pennsylvania last month, killing all five people on board, wasnt certified to fly using only on-board instruments, according to federal investigators. A preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Administration also states there was no indication the pilot obtained a weather briefing before taking off July 27 from TriCities Airport in Endicott, N.Y., bound for Jake Arner Memorial Airport in Lehighton shortly before the crash in Wyoming County. The pilot told air traffic controllers in Wilkes-Barre that the helicopter was flying using instruments rather than visual indicators and he asked to be directed to the nearest airport, the report said. A spokeswoman for Robinson Helicopter Co., the Torrance, Calif.-based company that owns the craft, said they believe the helicopter was caught in a thunderstorm.Teen safe; alleged abductor killedCASCADE, Idaho The man suspected of abducting 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and killing her mother and brother was killed in Idaho and the teen is safe, San Diego Sheriff William D. Gore said Saturday. Forty-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed by FBI tactical agents after a campsite was spotted from the air, according to Gore. He said San Diego sheriffs authorities have notified Hannahs father that she was rescued. He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his daughter, Gore said. Plans are being made to reunite the two, probably by Sunday morning, according to Gore.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressThis combination photo shows James Lee DiMaggio, 40, left, and Hannah Anderson, 16. Associated PressBAGHDAD A wave of car bombings targeting those celebrating the end of Ramadan across Iraq killed 69 people Saturday, a bloody reminder of the inability of Iraqi authorities to stop violence threatening to spiral out of control. Violence has been on the rise across Iraq since a deadly crackdown by government forces on a Sunni protest camp in April, and attacks against civilians and security forces notably spiked during Ramadan. The surge of attacks has sparked fears that the country could see a new round of widespread sectarian bloodshed similar to that which brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007. The bloodshed also comes after Iraqi security forces promised to step up efforts to increase security to protect the public during the Eid al-Fitr celebrations that mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. This years Ramadan was the most violence since 2007, with 671 people killed. My shops windows were smashed and smoke filled the whole area, said shoe shop owner Saif Mousa, who survived an attack near his store in New Baghdad. I went outside of the shop and I could hardly see because of the smoke. ... At the end, we had a terrible day that was supposed to be nice because of Eid. Many of the attacks occurred within an hour of each other, suggesting a level of coordination in the assaults. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks, though security forces and civilians are frequently targeted by al-Qaidas Iraq branch. Police said the deadliest of Saturdays attacks took place when a suicide bomber drove his explosive-laden car into a residential area in the town of Tuz Khormato, killing eight people and wounding dozens, Mayor Shalal Abdool said. The town is about 130 miles north of the Iraqi capital. The death toll in Saturdays attacks is the highest single-day total since July 20, when 71 people were killed in a series of attacks. More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq in July, the highest monthly death toll in five years, according to the United Nations. Associated PressCars try to navigate their way through New York City on Thursday, Aug. 14, 2003, during a blackout that hit U.S. and Canadian cities. Ten years after the blackout affected 50 million people, utilities and analysts say changes made in the aftermath make a similar outage unlikely today, though shifts in where and how power is generated raise new reliability concerns for the U.S. electric grid system. Wave of bombings in Iraq kills 69 Associated PressSecurity forces and civilians inspect the scene of a car bombing Saturday near a mosque in Kirkuk, 180 miles north of Baghdad, Iraq. Associated PressThe U.S. electrical grid is better managed and more flexible a decade after its largest blackout but remains vulnerable to increasingly extreme weather, cybersecurity threats, and stress caused by shifts in where and how power is produced. Many worry the grid isnt fully prepared for the new and emerging challenges, even though an analysis conducted for The Associated Press shows maintenance spending has steadily increased since North Americas largest blackout. This job of reliability is kind of impossible, in the sense that theres just so many things that could happen that its hard to be sure that youre covering all the bases, said William Booth, a senior electricity adviser with the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The industry has mostly addressed the failures blamed on a tree branch in Ohio that touched a power line and set off outages that cascaded across eight states and parts of Canada the afternoon of Aug. 14, 2003, darkening computer screens, halting commuter trains, and cutting lights and air conditioners for 50 million people. Grid operators who didnt initially realize what was happening now have a nearly real-time view of the system and are better equipped to stop problems from growing. Utilities share more information and systematically trim trees near high-voltage power lines. Electricity customers have been giving the grid a bit of breathing room. Power demand has remained flat or even fallen in recent years as lighting, devices, appliances, homes and businesses have gotten more efficient and economic growth has been sluggish. All that reduces stress on the grid. At the same time, aging coal and nuclear plants are shutting down in the face of higher maintenance costs, pollution restrictions and competition from cheap natural gas. Renewable generation such as wind turbines and solar panels are being installed, adding power thats difficult to plan for and manage. Temperatures and storms are getting more extreme, according to federal data, and that increases stress on the grid by creating spikes in demand or knocking out lines or power plants. Some regulators and policymakers are increasingly worried about cyberattacks that could target systems that manage power plants or grids. The grid that exists today wasnt designed for what everybody wants to do with it, said Joe Welch,CEO of ITC Holdings Corp., the largest independent transmission company in the U.S. The electric power industry did respond directly to the issues that sparked the blackout. An analysis of spending on maintenance and transmission equipment by more than 200 utilities nationwide conducted for the AP by Ventyx, a software and data services firm that works with electric utilities, shows that spending rose sharply in the years after the blackout. Maintenance spending for overhead lines increased an average of 8.2 percent per year from 2003 to 2012. In the period before the blackout, from 1994 to 2003, that spending grew 3 percent on average per year. Most outages residents experience stem not from the bulk system, but from smaller failures in distribution systems managed by local utilities and regulated by states. Not including storm-related outages, the average U.S. customer goes without power 1.2 times annually for a total of 112 minutes, according to PA Consulting Group. Ten years later, grid girded but still vulnerable The U.S. electrical grid is a complex system of power plants, transmission lines and local distribution networks that deliver power to homes and businesses. It comprisesthree major grids Eastern, Western and Texas divided into hundreds of smaller sections. A summary of how power flows on the system and who oversees it:GENERATIONThe roughly 6,000 power plants nationwide use coal, natural gas, nuclear fission, wind or sun to generate electricity.TRANSMISSIONA network of high-voltage power lines delivers large amounts of power over long distances, from power plants to substations in population centers. There are 450,000 miles of transmission lines in the U.S., organized in networks designed to be able to continue to deliver power even if part of the network fails.BULK POWERThe power plants and transmission networks make up the bulk power system. The responsibility for setting standards and tracking the performance of this equipment was given to the North American Electric Reliability Corp. after the blackout, as the result of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. Prior to that, NERC promoted reliability through voluntary standards in a system that depended on peer pressure and the interests of various entities in the industry.DISTRIBUTIONThis network of smaller lines and equipment delivers lowvoltage power from substations to customers through overhead lines and underground cables. Failures in this system from weather or other factors are responsible for most of the outages customers experience. Distribution is handled by hundreds of different investorowned utilities, municipal utilities and cooperatives. It is regulated at the state level.Sources: U.S. Department of Energy, American Society of Civil Engineers, Associated Press research

After sufficient food was grown they would bestow the surplus to orphans and widows in a nearby township Rosendal, South Africa. In November 2012, Shannon, a former Citrus Springs Middle School eighth-grade language arts teacher, and Corn, a former Seven Rivers Hospital night nurse, packed their two children and followed their dream to the Eastern Free State of South Africa. We wanted to move back to South Africa for a long time, Shannon said in an email. Corn has an advanced degree in community nursing. She wanted to help where she could with neonatal care, HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)awareness and prevention. I was going to look for a way to help in an educational way. Adjusting to culture, climate and continents is what they call home. Corn actually grew up here and the farm we bought is next to the farm she grew up on, Shannon said. Interesting geographic fact we are at the same latitude (just south instead of north) as Brooksville, but we are close to 5 000 ft. Almost no one has an air conditioner around here. Summer highs are in the mid 80s, lows are in the mid 60s. Winters are cold at night between 20 and 35 in the morning, days in low 60s. They have been getting some snow every second or third year lately.Former Citrus County residents open kitchen in AfricaBy Eryn Worthington Staff writer Special to the ChronicleTOP: Corn Stones calling in life was to help nourish children mentally and physically.

Rosendal has three stores which are the size of a large living room and the nearest grocery store is 35 minutes away. When they first arrived in South Africa, they wondered if they made a wise decision. When we first arrived, we had no vehicle. I began wondering what we had done left good jobs, good schools and a comfortable home and lifestyle, Shannon wrote. Less then a week here and some friends felt led to give us a Land Rover Defender. Things just started coming together. But this was only the beginning of their surprises. See AFRICA/ Page A18 Retirement celebration

Veterans & ServiceGROUPS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentHarold Phillips describes himself as a farm boy who grew up in a small town outside Saginaw, Mich.He tried to join the U.S. Air Force when the Korean War started, but the volunteers outnumbered the help at the wars beginning. I didnt want to join the Army, but then a Navy recruiter said hed take me, Phillips said. From 1951 to 1954, Phillips served on the USS Frank E. Evans, a destroyer that cruised just off the Korean coast. During the conflict, the Evans primary mission was providing fire support for U.S. troops. The ship was part of a four-destroyer group that also included the USS Cunningham, USS Blue and USS McKean. Phillips, now 81, was 19 when he joined the Navy, and he had just an eighth-grade education. Still, he climbed the promotion ladder and was a petty officer first class within two years, directing the fire control of the Evans 5-inch batteries. We provided fire support for the Marines and Army most of the time, Phillips said. There was no North Korean Navy to deal with Their fishermen got hell, he said. They didnt come out there. That didnt mean life aboard ship was without its perils. The main problem was mines, Phillips recalled. That was one of the things that scared me the most. There were floating mines and anchored ones. One time our sonar detected that we were right on top of an anchored minefield. We had to stop and back out, and we found out we were right on top of 60 mines. Fire-support missions by the destroyer group meant getting close enough to shore to come under fire from shore batteries. I remember getting up out of my bunk one night and a shell hit the side of the ship right at my bunk, but just dented us, he said. We were turning at the time, and it didnt explode, it just deflected off of us. The dangers werent all man made. In 1953, a typhoon that Phillips said lasted at least a month nearly tore the Evans apart. It was the scariest time I had, he said. It tore open the blowers (air systems) and the 5-inch guns, it caved them in, and it cracked seams into the hull. We had a heckuva time staying afloat. There were something like 80foot waves. Phillips earned three battle stars, awarded when the ship came under enemy fire. Although the North Koreans were well supplied with Sovietbuilt MIG 15 jet fighter planes, Phillips said they never threatened the U.S. Navy ships patrolling the coast. However, the Evans crew watched the air battles in the skies high above. We picked up a lot of pilots who were shot down, Phillips said. I give a lot of credit to those Marines and guys in the Army, he added. Some of those guys really went through hell.

A17SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: Ive always known that my husbands widowed mother runs his life. She picks out his clothes and even decided which house we should buy. I thought after we married Id have a more prominent place in his life. Wrong! Every decision is still made by his mother. He acts as if Im not smart enough. Meanwhile, his mother completely ignores me. She plans holiday gatherings and everything else with no regard for my preferences or schedule. She calls his cellphone constantly. Im seriously thinking about taking our 4-yearold and walking out. Im not sure he would notice. I love my husband, but he doesnt have time for me. Any suggestions? Im ready to explode. Second Best in Michigan Dear Second Best: In order for your husband to put you first, he must be willing to do so, and he will have to simultaneously fend off his mothers objections. You will have to explain why the change is crucial to the health of your marriage and then seek counseling. Dear Annie: Could you ask those people who live in the forests in western states why they build their houses so they will burn down? They must do it on purpose, because they have been doing it over and over for years. You can build a house so it wont burn so easily. Its very simple: Just build it out of steel, masonry, stucco, tile and drywall, all readily available at the local hardware store. Any builder today will know how to do it, and I dont think it would cost much more to build and would surely be a lot less expensive to insure. Retired Architect in Dayton, Ohio Dear Dayton: We have no idea why people build homes with particular materials in places prone to fires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters. We assume it has to do with the cost, the use of natural materials and a specific preference for the aesthetics.

After six or so weeks here, a friend introduced us to Pastor John and Nsoaki, Shannon wrote. He took us to where they were building the church in low socio-economic area where most of the people live in shanty houses (corrugated steel houses). We started talking and that was when we found our visions were so similar. He told us how he wanted to start a soup kitchen for the children in the area not getting enough of a proper diet. Along the same lines, they wanted to have Granny Gardens provide a place and support for the grandmothers that were raising grandchildren to grow their own food. They also wanted to start an English Christian school, and one of the later projects is a safe house for abused children and women. We hit it off right at the start, and visited the church the first Sunday of the year for the first service in their new building (after renting space at the school for 10 years). Shannon said they planned on getting acquainted with South Africa as their new home before reaching out to others. Instead, they became full time missionaries and are apart of the community more than we imagined. Three months ago, the soup kitchen Thsepo Generation which means hope generation opened its doors. The first day one child showed up. However, their belief and prayer for more children was answered as seven children were fed the next day. Today, they are feeding nearly 50 children. The children that we aim to serve come from the home of an unemployed, single parent, and the child is likely not getting proper nutrition, he said. Most of the children are very thin and often small for their age. Corn with her nursing background can see the signs of malnourishment. Before the children eat, the adults lead them in music and devotionals. And then after their meal, they are introduced to physical activity. Someone from the town has donated lots of soccer balls, cones, basketballs, so then they spend some time playing soccer, or the girls netball, with the goal of teaching teamwork and leadership, Shannon said. Shannon and other volunteer are currently in the process of completing the cob house, where he will begin educating the students. At the moment, Pastor John and I are working on getting the school set up for next year (school year starts in January), Shannon wrote. We are going to start with pre-school and kindergarten the first year. Then we will add a couple of grades a year, and will use the ACE system. (Accelerated Christian Education, based in Largo, FL, I believe) The system of ACE where the students work at their own pace, fast or slow, works wonderfully in this kind of situation. When Im done with the house, Id like to start a reading program, he continued. The childrens first language is Sesotho, but most schools switch to English as the medium of instruction from third grade onwards. Weve had some interesting experiences with people that have finished tenth grade but dont understand English. So for them to really be able to move forward educationally, they need to get English down pat.

He earned his diploma after just one year in night school, then enrolled in the engineering school at Lawrence Institute of Technology outside of Detroit, getting his Bachelor of Science degree.

Oak Hill finally had enough elements for a strong test Saturday in the PGA Championship, and Jim Furyk was up for the fight. Grinding to the end in swirling wind that cast doubt on so many shots, Furyk closed with two big putts one for birdie to regain the lead, one for par to keep it that gave him a 2-under 68 and a one-shot lead over Jason Dufner going into the final round. Coming off an 18-foot birdie putt on the 17th, Furyk hit his 3-wood so badly on the 472-yard closing hole that he couldnt have reached the green even if he had been in the fairway. He hit a solid shot over the bunkers and back into the fairway, watched his third shot spin off the green onto the fringe, and he gave an emphatic fist pump Furyk vaults back into lead at PGA Jim Furyk hits out of a bunker on the 11th hole Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y.Associated Press SPORTS BRIEFSEmotional Griffey honored by Seattle MarinersSEATTLE Ken Griffey Jr. became the seventh member of the Seattle Mariners Hall of Fame during a lengthy, emotional ceremony. Griffey made a long walk from center field on Saturday night to just in front of home plate for the ceremony that was supposed to last about 30 minutes but went nearly an hour. Griffey received a long standing ovation and most fans in the lower bowl of the stadium stood throughout the entire ceremony. Griffey was brought to tears when his son Trey a football player at Arizona made a surprise appearance with a video message, saying, I cant be more proud of you and the way you did it. Ken Griffey spoke for nearly 25 minutes in a completely unscripted speech.LeBron James gives back to hometown and alma materAKRON, Ohio NBA star LeBron James has kicked off another school year in his hometown of Akron with his foundations second annual I Promise Family Reunion. The LeBron James Family Foundation event has evolved from a bike giveaway to an education initiative that includes nearly 700 students. At his alma mater St. VincentSt. Mary High School on Saturday, James welcomed a new class of third-graders to the program. The students are required to complete a two-week camp over their summer vacation and then they become eligible to for new bike, helmet, a school uniform and backpack tags. James told the crowd that its important for children to know how important they are to the future and that their dreams can become a reality. James also outfitted the high schools fall sports teams with new Nike uniforms and is building a new gymnasium thats scheduled to be completed in the fall. From wire reports Associated PressLOS ANGELES Zack Greinke scattered six hits through 6 1-3 innings, Adrian Gonzalez homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Tampa Bay 5-0 Saturday despite the Rays hidden ball trick. Skip Schumaker added four hits for the NL West leaders. Tampa Bay lost its fourth straight, matching their longest skid this year. Most everything went well for the Dodgers, except when Tampa Bay got tricky. Rays third baseman Evan Longoria tagged out an unsuspecting Juan Uribe when he lifted his foot off the bag while chatting with coach Tim Wallach in the fourth inning. The rarely seen play occurred after A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, with all three runners moving up as center fielder Wil Myers threw toward the plate. First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball behind the mound. He flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who then quickly tossed the ball to Longoria while no one seemed to be looking. Longoria stood behind Uribe and waited for the right moment to trap him. Umpire Angel Hernandez was right on the play, watching the whole time, and made the out call. Greinke (10-3) struck out seven and walked one. The 2009 AL Cy Young winner is 6-1 with a 2.49 ERA in his 10 home starts. The Dodgers bullpen finished the job, lowering its ERA since the All-Star break to 1.89. Former Rays left-hander J.P Howell retired both batters he faced in the seventh and rookie Chris Withrow pitched two scoreless innings. Roberto Hernandez (6-12) gave up five runs and eight hits in four innings.

Austin Jackson followed a fourhit, three-double night Friday with a homer and triple against the organization that drafted him. Don Kelly had a two-run single after Phil Hughes (4-11) was lifted in a four-run fifth to help the AL Central leaders win for the 17th time in 21 games since the All-Star break.American League Blue Jays 5, Athletics 4TORONTO Josh Reddick hit two home runs, a day after connecting three times for Oakland, but the Toronto Blue Jays got shots from Jose Bautista and Jose Reyes to beat the Athletics 5-4.

It was Reddicks fourth career multihomer game.Red Sox 5, Royals 3KANSAS CITY, Mo.

Mike Trout reached base for a 40th consecutive game.National League Marlins 1, Braves 0ATLANTA The Atlanta Braves 14-winning streak ended with a 1-0 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored the lone run on reliever Jordan Waldens wild pitch in the ninth inning. The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchises longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight. Adeiny Hechavarria led off the Miami ninth with a triple and scored on the wild pitch by Walden (4-2). Marlins starter Nate Eovaldi allowed one hit in seven innings.

Third baseman Jack Hannahan had three of the errors two on off-target throws to first base, another on a grounder that got through him. All San Diego managed off the errors was two unearned runs. Venable hit his team-high 15th homer in the eighth inning off reliever Manny Parra.Nationals 8, Phillies 5WASHINGTON Jayson Werth launched a two-run homer in the seventh inning for his 1,000th career hit, highlighting a five-run rally that sent the Washington Nationals over the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5.

Tyler Clippard surrendered Domonic Browns 26th home run in the eighth and Rafael Soriano pitched the ninth for his 29th save.Cubs 6, Cardinals 5ST. LOUIS Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro hit a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to cap a three-run rally and the Chicago Cubs beat the Cardinals 6-5 to win a series in St. Louis for the first time in nearly three years. Matt Holliday homered for twice St. Louis. The Cubs trailed 4-2 entering the eighth, but tied it 4-4 on Darwin Barneys two-out, two-run double by off reliever Trevor Rosenthal (1-3). Navarro followed with his fifth pinch-hit RBI of the season to give Chicago a 5-4 lead.Mets 4, Diamondbacks 1PHOENIX Rookie Wilmer Flores drove in three runs to extend his RBI streak to four games, Zack Wheeler pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the New York Mets beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-1. Flores, called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, had a run-scoring single off Brandon McCarthy (2-6) in the fourth inning and a two-run single in the eighth, giving him eight RBIs in his first five games in the majors.

Elvis Andrus added a two-run homer as the Rangers extended their winning streak to a season-high six games.

B4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Serena Williams advances to Toronto final American set to meet Cirstea for Rogers Cup final Associated PressTORONTO Top-seeded Serena Williams advanced to the Rogers Cup final Saturday night, beating third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 7-6 (3), 6-4. The 2001 and 2011 Rogers Cup champion will face Romanias Sorana Cirstea, a 6-1, 7-6 (5) winner over fourth-seeded Li Na of China in the afternoon semifinal. Williams has seven tournament victories this year and 53 overall. In her last event, she won the Swedish Open on July 21. The 27th-ranked Cirstea ousted two former world No. 1s in Jelena Jankovic and Caroline Wozniacki this week and beat sixth-seeded Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinals. A new day, a new match, Cirstea said. It doesnt matter who I beat the day before or what Ive done. Its just another day where I have to get out there and do the things to show the work that Ive put in. Williams has played Cirstea twice and handily won both meetings. Cirstea won her lone WTA Tour in 2008 at Tashkent. Radwanska and Williams traded breaks twice in the first set, with the Pole keeping up with Williamss imposing power game. Radwanska dashed corner-tocorner at the baseline to make returns and led 6-5, but Williams held serve to force a tiebreaker. In the tiebreaker, Williams blasted a cross-court winner for a 6-3 advantage, then aced set point. Williams called for a medical timeout early in the second set because of gastrointestinal issues. She looked slightly out of sorts early in the set, going down a break and screaming at the ground after blowing an easy overhead smash. But that didnt last. Williams broke back and took a 4-3 lead by running Radwanska around the court with blistering offensive groundstrokes. She won a nearly 10-minute game to pull ahead 5-4 and broke Radwanska to finish off the match in 1 hour, 52 minutes. Associated PressSerena Williams returns the ball Saturday against Agnieszka Radwanska during the semifinal of the Rogers Cup in Toronto.

SportsBRIEFS Giants upend Steelers Associated PressPITTSBURGH Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for a 57yard touchdown pass and the New York Giants beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 18-13 in the preseason opener for both teams Saturday night. Cruz slipped by William Gay and Troy Polamalu, then outran Ryan Clark to score on his first reception since signing a $43 million contract in the offseason. Manning finished 2 of 5 for 73 yards. The Giants scored on both drives the offensive starters were in the game. Ben Roethlisberger completed 4 of 8 passes for 36 yards for Pittsburgh, leading the Steelers to a field goal on their second possession. Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones, the 17th overall pick in the draft, recovered a fumble in his professional debut. Running back LeVeon Bell, the teams second-round pick, did not play due to a sore left knee.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 B5 when his 15-foot par putt curled in the left side of the cup for par. Obviously, I made a bad swing, Furyk said. This week, I havent let too much bother me. It was a nice way to finish the day. Sunday doesnt figure to be any easier not the course, and not with the guys chasing him. Dufner thought he had missed another putt on the 18th hole until gravity pulled the ball into the side of the cup for a par that gave him a 71. Sure, it was eight shots worse than his record-tying 63 on a soft course Friday, but at least he got into the final group at the PGA Championship for the second time in three years. Henrik Stenson, a runner-up at the British Open three weeks ago, dropped only one shot over the last 16 holes and ran in a pair of 12-foot birdie putts for a 69 and was two shots behind. Swedens odds of winning a major have never been this high. Stenson will play in the penultimate group with Jonas Blixt, who had a 66. The surprise was Masters champion Adam Scott, who was poised to seize control at any moment. Scott blasted a driver on the uphill, 318-yard 14th hole that was so pure he snatched his tee from the ground as the ball was still rising. It stopped 25 feet below the cup, and he had an eagle putt to tie for the lead. The Australian twoputted for birdie, and two holes later fell back with a double bogey on the 16th. Scott escaped further damage with a 15-foot par save on the 17th and managed a 72. He was four shots behind, along with Steve Stricker, who had a 70. Those were the only five players within five shots of the lead. Whether more join the chase depends on Furyk, who was at 9-under 201. Still with an outside chance was Rory McIlroy, who came to life with three birdies over his last six holes for a 67. McIlroy, trying to join Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington as the only repeat winners of the PGA in the stroke-play era, knocked in a 40-foot birdie putt on the 17th and then showed more emotion than he has all year when he chipped in for birdie on the 18th. It was good to feel the sort of rush again, McIlroy said. He was at 207, still six shots behind. Woods, meanwhile, will have to wait eight more months to end his drought in the majors. He opened with two bogeys in three holes and shot a 73 to fall 13 shots behind. It was a shocking performance from the worlds No. 1 player, mainly because he was coming off an eightshot win at Firestone that included a 61. Woods has made only seven birdies in 54 holes four of them on par 3s. British Open champion Phil Mickelson was even worse. He sprayed the ball all over Oak Hill on his way to a 78, matching his highest score ever in the PGA Championship. Furyk wasnt overly excited when he opened this championship with a 65 to share the lead with Scott, and he has kept his eyes in front of him since then. He wasnt even sure what the leaderboard looked like, except that his name was at the top. Im comfortable with where Im at, Furyk said. Theres a crowded leaderboard at the top, and instead of really viewing it as who is leading and who is not, Im really viewing it as I need to go out there tomorrow and put together a good, solid round of golf. Fire a good number and hope it stacks up well. No one looked terribly comfortable at the start, not with the swirling wind and water hazard that winds its way along the front nine. U.S. Open champion Justin Rose fell apart early with back-to-back double bogeys that sent him to a 42. He wound up with a 77. Scott opened with a 20-foot birdie putt, only to follow with back-to-back bogeys. And when Dufner ended his string of pars by driving into the creek on No. 5 for double bogey, it appeared that this tournament was wide open. Associated PressJason Dufner watches his tee shot on the fourth hole Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Pittsford, N.Y. PGAContinued from Page B1 A-Rod sits a night after striking out 3 times Yankees player calls fans reaction overwhelming Associated PressNEW YORK Alex Rodriguez had a day off to think about the overwhelming reception he received in his season debut at Yankee Stadium. A-Rod did not play Saturday in the New York Yankees 9-3 loss to Detroit, a game that began about 13 hours after Rodriguez struck out three times in four at-bats during a 10-inning victory over the Tigers. Just a day, its a quick turnaround and hes coming off an injury, manager Joe Girardi said. If we dont have that late night maybe I play him today. Rodriguez left the ballpark Friday night without talking to the media, but he was upbeat and smiling throughout a chat in front of his locker before Saturdays game. The one topic he wouldnt discuss: a report that said he was given a letter by the Yankees stating that they are thinking of fining him for violating the collective bargaining agreement in late July. Citing anonymous sources, ESPNNewYork reported the Yankees could fine him for seeking an unapproved second opinion on his strained quadriceps. He can also be penalized for failing to show up for work July 12 after meeting with Major League baseball officials conducting the investigation into Biogenesis, the now-closed Florida anti-aging clinic. Maybe they sent it to my lawyers, but Im not really going to talk about that, Rodriguez said. A call to general manager Brian Cashman on Saturday was not returned. Coming off January hip surgery, Rodriguez played his first game in New York since a horrendous postseason and since appealing the 211-game doping suspension he was given last week. He received a mix of cheers and boos throughout the pregame and a good number of fans stood and applauded during his first at-bat against Detroits Rick Porcello. But any good vibes quickly turned to jeers when he struck out. I was having a hard time keeping my emotions in check, Rodriguez said of the welcome. So much better than I even dreamed of. I just felt the love walking around the city. What people are screaming, pretty incredible. This city is the greatest city in the world. Rodriguez was booed throughout his first three games of the season in Chicago. And he expects to hear plenty for the rest of the year. For the last 14 years theres always been a mix. Do you ever get 100 percent of anything? Rodriguez asked. Associated PressNew York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez fields balls during batting practice Friday before a game against the Detroit Tigers. Driver posts lap of 128.241 mph at Watkins Glen Associated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. When rain cut short Sprint Cup practice at Watkins Glen International and he struggled to find balance in his car, Marcos Ambrose blasted his team in the garage. I did lose my cool, Ambrose said. I didnt feel like we made enough progress for the race and for qualifying. I just didnt think it was feeling right. I just didnt quite feel like we were good enough. He is now. Ambrose shattered the Cup track record on Saturday to win the pole for the Cheez-It 355 on Sunday, turning a fast lap of 128.241 mph in the No. 9 Ford for Richard Petty Motorsports to easily eclipse the mark of 127.020 set a year ago by Juan Pablo Montoya. It was the 12th track record set this year in qualifying for the new Gen-6 car. For Ambrose, it was his third career pole and first at The Glen as he seeks his third straight victory at the historic road course in upstate New York. Its a very special moment for me. They did a good job to calm me down and not overreact to what I was saying, and it worked out really well, Ambrose said of his crew. We were catching up all day yesterday. This has not been the best qualifying track for me, Ambrose said. Im proud of today. Getting the pole was awesome. The car felt great. I think that bodes really well for tomorrow. If we can keep this form down, I think that our car will be good for the race, and when you have track position, thats going to help us a lot. Clint Bowyer qualified second and Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr. was third, followed by AJ Allmendinger and Kyle Busch. Max Papis, subbing for the injured Tony Stewart in the No. 14, qualified 29th. Stewart, who has a Cup-record five wins at Watkins Glen, is sidelined with a broken right leg suffered Monday in a sprint car race in Iowa. Reigning Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, in the hunt for a berth in the Chase for the championship, will start eighth, while chase contender Kurt Busch qualified 13th. Hendrick Motorsports struggled as Jimmie Johnson was 18th, Kasey Kahne 19th, Dale Earnhardt Jr. 25th and Jeff Gordon 28th. Ambrose won the past two races at Watkins Glen with some good fortune, besting Keselowski and Kyle Busch twice in a pair of stunning finishes. He started fifth in 2011 behind Kyle Busch, who won the pole, and was third off the grid last year behind pole-winner Montoya. It just helps our situation, Ambrose said. The last two years Ive come back through the field. Weve had luck on our side. I was doing it the hard way. This year, if you have a good day, you can be in control longer. Were very focused on staying in front. Nationwide race goes to Keselowski Associated PressWATKINS GLEN, N.Y. Brad Keselowski has always had a fondness for Watkins Glen International, and that fondness just grew a bit more. The reigning Sprint Cup champion, who had finished second three times in the past two years at The Glen, led 49 laps in the Nationwide Zippo 200 and finally notched that elusive first career road course victory Saturday. I dont know, its hard to explain. I can remember coming here with my dad (in the 1990s), just always having a love affair with this track, said Keselowski, runner-up to Marcos Ambrose in the past two Cup races at the track. Theres something about this track. I have a very deep appreciation for it. Its been a great race track for me. Keselowski passed Joey Logano for the lead with 16 laps to go, then held off Sam Hornish Jr. in a dominant performance for Penske Racing. Keselowski, who finished second to Carl Edwards despite leading more than half of this race a year ago, won for the fourth straight time over five months in NASCARs secondtier series. It was his 24th career Nationwide win, tying him with Tommy Houston for eighth place on the career list. Brian Vickers was third, followed by Regan Smith and Elliott Sadler. Logano finished 21st after running out of gas on the final lap, his teams fuel strategy backfiring. Hornish won the pole and set sail with Keselowski at the outset after Kyle Busch crashed on the first turn of the 82-lap race. Kyle getting torn up, it was pretty apparent that all three of our cars had a shot to win the race if we just didnt do something dumb, Keselowski said. So I tried to not do something dumb the whole race. Busch wasnt so fortunate. He started second but lost control of his No. 54 Toyota. Associated PressMarcos Ambrose celebrates in the pits after qualifying on the pole Saturday for todays Sprint Cup race in Watkins Glen, N.Y. Ambrose took the pole with 128.241 miles per hour.

B6SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Ray Lewis III following dads path at Miami Associated PressCORAL GABLES For Miami freshman Ray Lewis III, there is no escaping his fathers shadow. The kid doesnt mind that reality, either. Ray Lewis name and image are on the fence that surrounds the Hurricanes practice field. His words are displayed along one of the walls of the teams new locker room. His resume two-time Super Bowl winner, 13-time Pro Bowler, quite possibly the greatest inspirational-speech-giver of all time is known by just about anyone who follows football. Now his son is getting into the family business. Lewis III decided to follow his fathers college path and enroll at Miami, where hes learning how to play defensive back and isnt even listed on the teams most recent depth chart. But there will be plenty of intrigue in how he develops with the Hurricanes, more because of his surname than anything else though he insists that its not a burden to carry his fathers name around. If I let it, I feel like it could, Lewis III said Friday at the teams media day. But my mom did a great job raising me and I feel like she never let that get to me, either. I already know theres going to be expectations. I know people are going to expect a lot. People are going to think a lot. People are going to make assumptions before they even get to know me. But like I said, if I let that get to me, I wouldnt be playing. Theres no shortage of current Miami players with family trees that have deep, longstanding Hurricane roots. Defensive end Anthony Chickillo is a third-generation Hurricane, and his cousin Wyatt Chickillo is a freshman on this years team. Freshman quarterback Kevin Olsen is the brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who starred at Miami. Wide receiver Greg Golden, another freshman, is the nephew of Hurricanes head coach Al Golden and the son of Greg Golden Sr., a Miami walk-on during the Howard Schnellenberger era. Its my dream school, Greg Golden said. So for many Hurricanes, this season will be a family affair. And for Lewis III, it might be particularly special now that hes at his mothers alma mater and that his father who retired after last season will have more time than ever to see him play. Ray Lewis was around the Hurricanes at times during the summer, when they were going through 7on-7 drills to get ready for training camp, and his son said he savored the experience of having his dad around his new team. The one thing I can tell you about Ray-Ray is he is a learner, Al Golden said. He is a learner. He is a football kid, he really is. I mean, everything you teach him, he learns and he improves. Now, hes got a long way to go because he doesnt have the number of reps over his whole career playing that position and the comfort level, but hes a learner and just a guy who figures things out. Ray Lewis has talked several times in recent months about the symmetry of it all, how his last game Baltimores win in the Super Bowl over San Francisco came in the same week that his son signed with Miami. Everybody knows my dad is an NFL icon, said Lewis III, who was a running back during his high school days at Lake Mary Prep near Orlando, collecting nearly 1,900 yards as a senior there. Hes an NFL Hall of Famer. Hes done great over his lifetime. Associated PressRay Lewis III is the son of retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who also attended Miami. Lewis III said its more of a blessing than a burden to follow in his fathers footsteps. Jags tiff no big deal Blackmon, Babin argue on sidelines Friday Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley had receiver Justin Blackmon and defensive end Jason Babin in his office Saturday morning, hours after the two got into it on the sideline during the teams preseason opener. Bradley was pleased with what he heard, too. Im not going to say that there was (nothing) between Justin and Jason Babin, but it was more like, Just back up when Gus is telling you to back up, Bradley said. Its one of those things, and it probably appeared bigger. ... But it was a lot smaller than what I initially thought. It started when Blackmon, sitting out because of a groin injury, began jawing with Miami Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll in the second quarter. The Jaguars were upset with a tackle and made it known to Carroll. Blackmon was the closest and most vocal of the bunch, escalating the tiff to the point where Bradley took notice. Thats when veteran defensive end Jason Babin stepped in, apparently telling Blackmon to calm down, which drew a reaction from his teammate. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew eventually calmed Blackmon down and escorted him to the locker room. Were handing it inside the building and trying to move on, Jones-Drew said. Blackmon, meanwhile, skipped the teams open media session Saturday. Babin downplayed the spat, even reacting to questions as if he was unaware anything happened. Just an emotional game, he said. Its how its done, you know? Its football. Whatever happens Sunday, happens Sunday, and thats it. Getting to the QB Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a better pass rush, and according to coach Greg Schiano, that means they need a better DaQuan Bowers. Schiano has been on his thirdyear defensive end during practices and after all summer long. Its certainly not anything personal. We both want the same thing, Schiano said Saturday. He wants to be an every-down player and we need an everydown defensive end, so were just trying to get there. Bowers was the only Bucs regular to play the entire first half Thursday night in a 44-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason opener. His performance drew mixed reviews from Schiano. I felt like I needed it, Bowers said. Im an unproven defensive end in this league. I felt like I needed the extra work. I talked to coach about it. He agreed, I agreed, so we came up with a plan. Even after investing premium picks on three defensive linemen, including Bowers, in the 2010 and 2011 drafts, the Bucs have ranked among the bottom teams in the NFL in sacks every year. Last year, they had the worst pass defense in the league (379.9 yards per game) while recording only 27 sacks. That was one of our issues, Schiano said. We havent had that yet, with a four-man front or a three-man front getting to the quarterback consistently. Until we do it, there needs to be concern. The 6-foot-4, 288-pound Bowers, a second-round pick in 2011, has 4 1/2 sacks in 26 games. Staying on the field as a full-time player might be the solution to that lack of production. I think its a lot harder than the average person thinks, said Bowers, whose career has been slowed by Achilles and knee surgeries. I think coach Schiano said it best: when youre a starting pitcher you have a lot more pitches than a closer, so you know you just have to get ready to go. You have to bring your A game and be prepared. Im a firm believer that theres no missed opportunities in this league. If I dont take advantage of it, then somebody on the street will. Schiano intends to make sure Bowers taps his potential. DaQuan has what we refer to as heavy hands, Schiano said. Hes strong so when he puts his hands on you, you feel it. When he plays with good pad level and does that, hes a force, but when he doesnt, hes not a force. I think its just practicing being a consistent player. Coach is a straightforward guy and I respect him, said Bowers. He said he wanted more out of me, so its my job to come out here and give him more, give him all that I have until I dont have any more.NotesFormer Bucs receiver Keyshawn Johnson was in camp to do an ESPN interview with cornerback Darrelle Revis. In the season opener Sept. 8, Revis will be in a situation similar to the one Johnson was in 2000, when he faced his former team, the New York Jets, in a September game. It was the same story two picks, blah-blah-blah, bunch of money, the hype, so well put it in the can and use it for Week 1, Johnson said. That way I wont have to come down here and fight the media that week to get an interview from him. . Guard Carl Nicks, who missed most of last season with a toe injury, has been working with the first team in practice, but no decision was announced on whether he will play at New England. . The Bucs will practice against the Patriots on Tuesday and Wednesday in New England before playing Friday night. . .The Bucs signed safety Troy Nolan.

Buccaneers coach Schiano pushing defensive end Bowers to provide pass rush Associated PressJacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon catches balls during warmups before an NFL preseason game Friday against the Miami Dolphins in Jacksonville. Blackmon sat out the game because of a groin injury. Clowney out, QB Shaw off target in SC scrimmage Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. South Carolina All-America defensive end Jadeveon Clowney sat out Saturdays scrimmage because of a sore shoulder, while Gamecocks quarterback Connor Shaw was off target in his first action since an offseason foot surgery. Still, Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier thought it was a solid showing his offense in the 90minute session at Williams-Brice Stadium. Overall, I would say the offense played a little bit better today, Spurrier said. Some of the second (team) offensive linemen showed some improvement, so that was encouraging. Its hard for Gamecock fans to be hopeful when they see Clowney in street clothes instead of his fearsome No. 7 uniform. Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said theres nothing to worry about. Ward said Clowneys condition wasnt serious and the defensive lineman wasnt expected to play much anyway as coaches got a look at South Carolinas younger defenders. I guess he bruised it, but its fine, Ward said. We werent going to play him anyway. Count on the Gamecocks to protect their defensive leader throughout fall camp as the team prepares for its opener against North Carolina on Aug. 29. Clowney is the reigning Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year and finished sixth in Heisman Trophy balloting. He had 13 sacks and a school-record 23 1/2 tackles for loss last fall. What Ward needed to see was his young linebackers the Gamecocks lost five seniors from one of the most solid groups on the 2012 defense. In addition, one of the expected starters for this year in Cedrick Cooper has been out with dislocated left elbow. Linebacker T.J. Holloman led the way with an interception of Shaw early in the scrimmage. I think theyre doing some good things, but again, theyre not there yet, Ward said. Neither, apparently, is Shaw, who was 3 of 10 passing with an interception. South Carolinas senior holds the schools best winning percentage at 17-3 as a starter. But he hadnt seen any live action since coming out in the final minute of South Carolinas 33-28 Outback Bowl victory over Michigan. While that game will be most remembered for Clowneys helmetpopping hit on Wolverines running back Vincent Smith, it was Shaws backup, Dylan Thompson, who came and delivered the game-winning, 32-yard touchdown throw to receiver Bruce Ellington with 11 seconds left. Thompson also passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns as the Gamecocks won at Clemson, 27-17, with Shaw sidelined because of injury. Spurrier has flatly stated several times this summer that Shaws the starter, although, he would try and work Thompson into the mix. Thompson led the Gamecocks on two touchdown drives during the scrimmage. He finished 5 of 7 with 74 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown. Spurrier said Shaws back was a bit sore after more than a week of practice.

See WINDOW/ Page C3 Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Build it and they will come Iwould like to share my positive thoughts and ideas for the proposed intersection of the Suncoast Parkway 2 and County Road 495. The five areas I would like to highlight are economic development, community redevelopment, ecotourism, quality-of-life issues and land-use community standards for Parkway intersections.ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENTWhat would happen if an interchange is not established at Suncoast Parkway 2 and County Road 495? With only three current proposed interchanges of local and state roadways, northand southbound traffic would bypass the city of Crystal River, its businesses and community. With the closing of Progress Energy/Dukes nuclear power plant and the impending closing and demolition of the coal-fired plants, the interchange should be viewed as an economic stimulus for the city of Crystal River. The proposed interchange would bring a new vitality and sustainability that does not currently exist.COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENTThe city of Crystal Rivers Community Redevelopment Agency is rapidly approaching its sunset after 30 years of existence. A Suncoast Parkway 2 interchange with County Road 495 will bring a new set of guests, visitors, customers and possible residents to Crystal Rivers business community. It would be an economic trigger that would give Crystal River property owners the confidence to invest in upgrading their commercial properties and businesses. This unique community transportation investment by the state would create a new, very positive business climate for future investment, creating new jobs, enhanced commerce and a stabilized tax base.TOURISMThe proposed interchange would be a new conduit linking guests and visitors to Crystal Rivers ecotourismrelated venues.

To maintain Citrus Countys quality of life. 2. Honest, accountable and transparent government. 3. Maintain Citrus Countys natural resources. 4. Government that works for the peoples best interest. 5. Affordable living by keeping government responsible and limiting its growth when necessary. 6. Having good future planning (roads, etc.) at a pace the taxpayer can afford based on population growth. We will sell no wine before its time. Ive been in office for approximately eight months. Our mission statement has run into much resistance from the old guard that protects certain sacred cows or should I say, special interests. We can make this mission a reality in the upcoming election. These principles will benefit all taxpayers and be businessand job-friendly. It takes true public servants with no special agendas to make this happen. Lets be clear: We are fighting for the right future of Citrus County. I am honored to be one of your county commissioners.

Local residents unhappy with the flow rate set for the river by the Southwest Florida Water Management District will be challenging the rate at a hearing at the districts Brooksville headquarters.The meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 10 at 2379 Broad St. Our waters: Destroyed in the name of the law Preoccupied as we are all with keeping up with the myriad chores of modern life, many have not noticed that Floridas water policies and laws have failed to a large degree. Our planet is about 75 percent covered by water. Of this vast quantity of water, only 1 percent to 2 percent is fresh water, and with few exceptions, only those portions found in the aquifer are of sufficient quality so as to be potable without treatment. We are wholly dependent upon a resource that can be preserved and maintained, but under the cover of law, in Florida, it often is not. Wateris our lifeblood. We depend upon it each and every day of our existence. Our surface waters are transporta tion conduits and powerful economic engines. We use the water in our aquifer for residential water supply, irrigation, agriculture and industrial applications with hardly a second thought. We are past the point where a second thought is glaringly necessary. Florida promotes development as an economic enterprise. Development is defined by Florida Statute 380 as the carrying out of any building activity or mining operation, the making of any material change in the use or appearance of any structure or land, or the dividing of land into three or more parcels. Such activities are dependent upon water, and 80 percent of Floridas water supply currently comes from our aquifer. We are already using aquifer water faster than it is being replenished. We have allowed our freshwater aquifer to become contaminated with salt water, nitrates Principles for planning the countys future There will be a hearing before the Florida Department of Environmental Protection secretary at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the SWFWMD headquarters in Brooksville, at 2379 Broad St., because local residents and organizations are challenging ineffective water management policy.

Page C2SUNDAY, AUGUST 11, 2013 Dont stop flow of nutritious foodsEarlier this month the U.S. House of Representatives, on a party-line vote, broke with tradition by stripping from the farm bill the Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps). Whats left in the bill is billions of dollars of subsidies mostly for farming conglomerates. The U.S. Senate passed a much more balanced bill last month. Over the past 18 years, our government has doled out an average of $7 billion per year of taxpayer funds to support the livestock and dairy industries. Instead, their products should be taxed to reimburse state and federal governments for the uncounted billions in increased medical costs and lost productivity associated with their consumption. Conversely, a sound national nutrition program based on vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fruits and nuts can save additional billions in reduced social costs. I am all in favor of reducing our national deficit, government waste and medical costs. But thats not going to happen by taking nutritious food from the mouths of 47 million of our societys least privileged members.Cecil Casterelli Crystal River EDNAMATTOSRe: Technological imperative, guest column, Aug. 4, by Rep. Jimmie T. Smith .Rep. Jimmie Smith pushes the technological component of Common Core State Standards Initiatives (CCSS), which targets language arts, English and math. CCSS should be understood by every parent, teacher and taxpayer. Floridas government agreed to enact these standards before they were even written in order to receive grant money from the federal governments Race to the Top Fund (RTTT). CCSS is not a state initiative, nor were these standards developed by any state legislator, educator or expert. These standards were developed by two special interests consortia National Governors Association and Council of Chief State School Officers both heavily funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Gates Foundation. In 2004, Bill Gates signed an agreement with the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to develop and promote international strategic partnerships. It seeks to use information and communication technologies (ICTs) to accelerate social and economic development acting through the collaboration of a range of stakeholders. These priorities include education and learning in the area of mainstreaming ICT into socio-economic development programmes. These standards are the first top-down, federally driven nationalized educational standards in our history. All children will be on the same playing field a one-size-fitsall approach within a state and from state to state and, ultimately, country to country. However, there are no international benchmarks to compare. Florida legislators do not know what the outcome will be. These standards have not been tested. This is not a collegeand career-preparedness curriculum, and Floridas students are being used as lab rats to further globalization and to enrich those heavily involved in its creation and implementation. Under the CCSS, local school boards will only have 15 percent jurisdiction over curricula and standards. The testing will go on for weeks instead of days. The stress factor for students will be double that of FCAT. Parents will lose complete authority over their childrens educational needs. Instead, authority will go to the federal government or any group/ agency they wish to appoint. Five out of the 29 validation committee members (including the only two educational experts on the committee) refused to sign off on CCSS because they consider CCSS to be inferior in standards and in content; and because there is no evidence that the standards are of any benefit. The road Rep. Smith is paving will take students to a place where elementary grade testing will determine their education curriculum. The state will determine career needs, the alternative career path a student should take, and who can go to college and become a professional. Russia adopted vocational and technical education with relatively decent results at first. It covered enormous specializations to better serve employers. The relevance was artificial because it was established within a central economic planning and centralized job placement. Russia pushed students to have job-specific skills before entering the workforce, assuming students would enter predictable careers requiring predictable knowledge in predictable technologies. Vocational training across the board became predictable. Their out -of-control predictability did not correlate with market demands and changes, and this created a huge imbalance. The vocational system was affected by the economy and the shift in employer needs. The government assumed responsibility for subsidizing food and teachers salaries. Twenty-plus years later, the countrys vocational and technical education model is still undergoing changes. In the 1970s, Chicago experimented with a similar program of outcome-based education called mastery learning (ML), headed by professor Benjamin Bloom. ML was a huge failure and ended in disgrace in 1982. It increased the illiteracy rate, and it was blamed for extremely low test scores. This turned into a national scandal of incompetency and disgrace for poorly planned and tested education experiments. The nearly $16 billion in additional costs is nearly four times the federal governments RTTT grant awards. State and local taxpayers will foot 90 percent of the bill for K-12. The federal governments push to get states to adopt national standards and tests amounts to one big unfunded mandate. And the huge technological component costs have not been completely determined because its a moving target. There are constitutional issues that will be challenged in court. Only states have the right to direct education. The General Educational Provisions Act (GEPA) states: No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system. Under GEPA law, and the Ninth and 10th Amendments, we have the right as a state to determine educational programs. CCSS will open the door for more state charter schools, similar to the thousands of learning institutions created in Russia. Its imperative we have a much broader discussion on what the purpose of our education system is and what its future will look like for our students, as Smith writes. But first, it should not enrich proponents of alternative education, nor should it be sold to the highest bidder and international foreign interests. This discussion must include parents, educators and experts, and not be controlled by government elitists, special and/or foreign interests. Education must be kept out of the hands of the federal government and private self-serving groups at the state and national levels.

The immediate local fallout is that there will not be the 2,000 or more good-paying construction jobs, and there will not be the several hundred wellpaid jobs for permanent plant staffing. The long-term consequence is that with the shuttering of the Crystal River nuclear plant (CR3) and the planned closing of two of the four coal plants at the Crystal River site, Duke will become even more reliant on natural gas as the fuel for the generation of electricity. According to reports filed with the state Public Service Commission, the company expects to produce almost three-fourths of its electric power from gas within the next decade. Natural gas is currently cheap, and natural gas power plants are much cheaper to build than nuclear plants, so this is a good strategy for a company focused on quarterly or annual earnings, and the strategy could benefit customers if gas remains cheap. However, the history of the first two units at the Crystal River energy complex gives us one example of how dangerous it is to make assumptions about the future price of fuel for generating plants. Units 1 and 2 were initially built as coal-burning units in the 1960s, but shortly after their construction they were converted to burn oil, which was then cheaper than coal. But following the 1973 oil embargo, the price of oil soared and the units were converted back to coal, which was then cheaper than oil. And like the price of oil, the price of natural gas can fluctuate dramatically. During the past decade, the wholesale price of natural gas has varied from a little over $4 per thousand cubic feet to more than $12 per thousand cubic feet. This price volatility matters because a power plant is a long-term investment 60 years or more for a coal or nuclear plant and about half that for a natural gas plant. Changes in the price of fuel can make what is cheap today expensive tomorrow. Today, natural gas is cheap, primarily due to a recovery technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. But this is a controversial method. Should there be restrictions on this recovery method, or should the government impose a carbon tax to reduce greenhouse emissions, the price of natural gas could jump substantially. Nuclear fuel, on the other hand, is both relatively cheap and the price is more stable than that of oil or gas. A nuclear plant would act as a hedge against increases in the price of gas, but a nuclear plant takes years to license and build. Dukes decision on the Levy County plant takes this option off the table for many years into the future. Although the company says it will still seek a license for the Levy County plant and could revive the project, the decision to cancel the engineering contract makes eventual construction even more unlikely, and certainly much further into the future. Building nothing but naturalgas generating capacity makes short-term economic sense for the company and its shareholders. What it means for customers over the long term is unclear and potentially risky, because the cost of fuel used to generate electricity is passed directly to customers. We can hope low natural gas prices will persist without disruptions in the supply, because Duke has left itself few options and little wiggle room should gas prices soar or supplies be interrupted.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 C3 If all goes according to schedule, this column will appear on Aug. 11, but, today, as it is being written, is Aug. 1. It is my birthday my 68th birthday. Ive always enjoyed my birthdays. So far, this one has been no exception. My Cheryl has a small, family birthday dinner planned for us this evening at one of the local restaurants. But, already, sheand I have watched an old movie a classic, The Maltese Falcon together. Im sure wed seen it before, but thats one of the advantages of getting older: You forget the details about such things and have no problem at all enjoying em again. Also, my monthly toe appointment was today, and my pedicurist, Patty, presented me with a cupcake, candle and all. One of the main things I enjoy about my birthday is that it causes me to reflect on earlier times and the people who have been a part of my life as it has progressed. Of course, no other person even comes close to ever being as important in my world as Cheryl, but I had 20 birthdays before she and I became us. Up until then, it was my boyhood family, and my mother was the kingpin, but there were also the townspeople of Lacoochee. Our house was at the north end of a small business district that spanned no more than 100 yards. Things were different then, and by the time I was 5 years old, my mother felt no fear about sending me alone to the stores to fetch whatever needed fetching. I knew all of the storekeepers, including the postmistress and the justice of the peace. I knew them, they knew me and Mama knew their watchful eyes were an assurance of my well-being. At that stage in my life, my nickname was Button, and thats what virtually everyone in town called me. But, as time passed, my mother thought the nickname had run its course. When I started to school, she asked everyone to please begin calling me by my given name, Fred not Button, not Freddy, not Junior, but Fred. Most folks cooperated, but a few did not. One of those who refused to honor her request was the local justice of the peace, Gregg OBerry. His nickname was Judge. He seemed to like his nickname, and I suppose he thought I liked mine, so to him, I remained Button. Even after I started working at the bank, Judge OBerry continued to call me Button. When he would come into the bank and one of the other tellers would ask, May I help you? he would always politely decline by saying, No, thank you. Ill wait for Button. Another was my mothers sister, Dot. When Cheryl and I moved to Orlando in 1969, my contact with Judge OBerry became very infrequent; and, of course, he died many years ago. But Aunt Dot continued to call me Button on a regular basis until she passed in December 2011 at the age of 93. Yes, birthdays bring memories; and, on this one, at least for a moment, with a just a tiny twinge of nostalgic melancholy, I am fondly remembering my being a boy called Button.Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist.

The Central Florida Water Initiative is currently attempting to identify possible water sources to supply the areas future needs through 2035. Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) Director of Resource Management Mark Hammond was recently quoted in the Orlando Sentinelsaying Our preliminary finding is that traditional groundwater sources can meet some, but not all projected needs. The year 2035 is fewer than 22 years away, less time than it will take to develop alternative supply sources. Until then, we will keep pumping ground water at a furious pace, thus continuing the slide which puts us deeper in the quagmire of impaired waters. Be they springs, lakes or an estuary, much of our economy is dependent on maintaining their health. All Citrus County coastal river systems are predominately spring-fed, and all are designated as Outstanding Florida Waters. All are also now on the EPA Impaired Waters List. Removing that smudge from waters which contribute nearly $100 million per year to Citrus Countys economy will be expensive, but it must be done. It is reasonable to defend these waters if only for the economic contribution to our lives and future generations. The foolishness must stop. Heres the message: Your children will carry the burden of decisions and water policies administered today, and tomorrow, by the state of Florida. Your failure to recognize and react to policies which threaten the well-being of your offspring renders you complicit in the condemnation of their future. Though the threat is more subtle than an invasion, its magnitude is no less. What can you do? Well, get involved and argue in defense of your water so that it will be a legacy and not a liability. Join other concerned citizens and make your voice be heard. SWFWMD sets minimum flows and levels (MFLs) standards by formulating rules in Florida Administrative Code. In setting MFLs for the Homosassa and Chassahowitzka rivers, SWFWMD determined tripling the current level of flow reduction is acceptable despite current use and resultant pollutant contributions, which have led to their status as impaired waters. This rationale was supported by deferring Clean Water Act requirements from the rule development analysis to permitting review at a later date. The merit of that policy is worthy of challenge due to its manifest failure to protect our waters. There will be a hearing before the secretary of the state Department of Environmental Protection at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the SWFWMD headquarters in Brooksville because local residents and organizations are challenging ineffective water management policy. You are invited to attend the hearing and lend your support for our most valuable resource. Public input will be heard beginning at approximately 2 p.m. Dan Hilliard a director with Withlacoochee Area Residents Inc., which was organized in 1984 in response to quality of life threats posed by activities that have a high potential to degrade groundwater and surface water quality. Sisters Springs Park. The Suncoast Parkway 2 interchange this close to the City of Crystal River is a vital link to our ecotourism experiences, as it will bring visitors from both north and south. Our local hospitality industry, bars, restaurants, shops and businesses will enjoy an enhanced customer base.QUALITY-OF-LIFEISSUESMy proposed Citrus County Trail Network Project is currently in the comment phase of its development. It includes a vital connection point to the city of Crystal River through the extension of the existing Crosstown Trail northward from the Old Train Depot to the Suncoast Parkway 2. This connectivity feature was first unveiled in the countys Supplemental Information for Partnership Progress dated Feb. 12, 2013. A major trailhead with associated amenities and vehicle parking are also proposed for that location. This proposed trail extension would connect the city of Crystal River to the Gulf of Mexico via the W ithlacoochee Bay Trail, Citrus Countys Central Ridge planned service area and all locations southward to Tampa along the Parkways existing trail system. The final version of the Trail Network Project will be installed in the countys Comprehensive Land Use Plan for future funding by the Parkway Authority, the state of Florida, the state Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Transportation. The proposed interchange should be viewed as a connection point to the Parkways motorized and nonmotorized features for inbound and outbound movement in both north and south directions.LAND-USECOMMUNITYSTANDARDS FORPARKWAYINTERSECTIONSThe Citrus County Comprehensive Land Use Plan provides strict development standards for local roadway connections to the Suncoast Parkway 2 extension through our county. These Interchange Management Areas (IMAs) provide:Modern development to our community standards;The promotion of aesthetically pleasing development;Recognition of the importance of the interchange areas as gateways to our community;Protection of the integrity and safety of the roadways through acceptable access management practices. More than seven years ago, the Board of County Commissioners desired to make sure Citrus Countys interchanges with Suncoast Parkway 2 do not look like the intersection of Interstate 75 with State Road 44 at Wildwood. The Interchange Management Areas are the assurance that proposed development in those corridors would be controlled and managed by the countys Comprehensive Land Use Plan. As the District 1 Commissioner since 2004, I have always voted in favor of the Suncoast Parkway 2 extension through Citrus County. I fully support and endorse the Parkway project with an interchange at County Road 495. I respectfully ask you to join me with your support of this worthwhile transportation project.Dennis Damato is the Citrus County commissioner for District 1, which includes Crystal River. DAMATOContinued from Page C1 WINDOWContinued from Page C1 WATERSContinued from Page C1 Hot Corner:BRAD THORPE Could have predicted itIn May when our county administrator announced his retirement, it kind of surprised me a little bit, but I didnt think much about it. The more I thought about it, the first part of June I started telling my neighbors, You watch, that guys going to pull the same thing the sheriff did. Hell retire and then hell unretire. In the meantime, our administrators driven half our county staff away. I cant envision working for that man now with the staff that would be left there. There certainly cant be too much goodwill feelings.For how long?Hey, I thought Thorpe was really interested in retiring and being with his family time and all that kind of stuff, doing all this private stuff. Hell stick around here as long as the county needs him. How long you think the countys going to need him? Well, theyre going to need him til they can assign a port authority leader and then theyre going to make him the port authority person.Here we go againThe Chronicles headline today (that) Thorpe may not retire, its certainly no surprise. The rumors been around for weeks that commissioners ... were going to ask him to stay and not look at the applicants that were applying. Here we go again. Same old, same old.Wish you wellNo thanks, Brad. We dont really want you to come back as the county administrator. We wish you well in your retirement and hopefully well get new blood that will learn to cut spending, balance budgets and be all-around honest and truthful to the citizens and improve our county the way the elderly would love to have it.Time to move onI would just like to say ... Jeff Dawsy and our man there, Thorpe they both said they were going to retire and get out of politics and out of the county. And what did they do? They reneged themselves. They need to get on with their lives. Off they goBrad Thorpe wants to stay and Meek agrees. In my opinion, both of them should go.Stick to resignationReading the edition of the Aug. 7 Chronicle, the incompetent commissioners are at it again. They think Thorpe is the only capable politician to run this county. Why should he stay when he already resigned? There are 28 applicants in the wings. The commissioners missed the boat several years ago when they had a county administrator who was known nationally and would have got the county on the right track. They badgered him until he left. Why do they want to pander to Thorpe when he and the commissionershave run this county into the ground? Meeks says Thorpe can stay if it works for his personal situation. Meek should want someone who works for the citizens of the county, not the personal wants of Thorpe. Thorpe says he will stabilize the county. What has he been doing since were in such a disaster? How can he stabilize us? Give me a break. Been on the rumor millI just read the article today in the paper regarding Brad Thorpe offering to remain as county administrator. This topic has been circulating around the county for the past couple of weeks. It seems as if none of the county commissioners want to review the 28 candidates and would rather keep Thorpe in his position. Whats this all about?Would miss the salaryWell, I see Brad Thorpe is pulling a flip-flop just like Sheriff Dawsy. Im going to retire, but then they dont retire. All those huge salaries and benefits start looking pretty good when you leave, plus all the power.No money for budgetThe taxpayers did not ask for bloated government. How in the world can Mr. Thorpe present a budget with millions of dollars not there to fund the budget? Theres no money. Mr. Thorpe was part of the problem as a commissioner and an administrator. Sound OFF Dogs have their placeI just want to say that I am a dog lover, but I think theres a time and place for dogs. I was just in Walmart yesterday and some woman walks in and is walking around the store and comes in to Dunkin Donuts with a dog that is not a service dog. I think that only service dogs, such as seeing-eye dogs and service dogs, should be allowed in any store or restaurant. Please keep your dog at home, people. They have food in these areas. I wonder what the health department would say if somebody called them.Mall suggestionsAbout the (Crystal River) Mall: Why not a Sams or a Costco? That would take care of a lot of the whole site and it would still draw tourists north and south and it would put a lot of people to work.

Vali Nasr, The Indispensable Nation: American Foreign Policy in Retreat (Doubleday, 2013, 300 pages)MICHAELFRANCIS Special to the ChronicleThe author of this book is a faculty member and administrator at Johns Hopkins University arguably the best international studies program in America. He was brought into the Obama foreign policy team by Richard Holbrooke, the controversial troubleshooter who played a pivotal role in ending Yugoslavias ethnic wars. It was widely reported that Obama resisted the appointment of Holbrooke, but yielded to Hillary Clintons insistence. The author was part of Holbrookes team that concentrated on, among other things, using diplomatic negotiations to end the conflict in Afghanistan. Holbrooke unexpectedly died in December of 2010. This book is intended as a blueprint for a more productive American foreign policy. The author expresses disappointment with Obamas global strategy of retreat, while avoiding tarring Clinton with the same brush. Who knows? She might succeed Obama in the White House. If it is Clinton, one can see this book as Nasrs making a case for being appointed to an important foreign policy position. But in the meantime, this book offers profound and nuanced observations of global conflicts. Holbrooke was an advocate of forceful diplomatic maneuvering and called for immediate negotiations with the Taliban. However, President Obama wanted to use the U.S. military presence to transform the Afghan army into an effective fighting force in order to give the Hamid Karzai government a stronger position when negotiations began. Unfortunately, during the past few years, the Karzai administration has become increasingly corrupt and rigid, and so far the talks have bogged down before they started. In The Indispensable Nation, Nasr analyzes the options facing Washington as we attempt to halt violence in the Middle East and pursue our broader international interests. One could call his position muscular global liberalism. It is liberal in the sense of advocating free trade, global trade agreements, development-assistance projects and more effective international organizations. The United States, he argues, should use aggressive diplomacy to strengthen its links to Russia, China, Turkey and other important nations. This liberalism would seek to replace military might with an activist foreign policy unsurprisingly, in light of the limited results of our military engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan. Much of the book deals with the Middle East. His discussion of the Sunni/Shiite divisions and the Wahhabi influence in Saudi Arabia, the Alawite influence in Syria and other schisms within Islam are illuminating and cover issues Americans frequently overlook. He sees Turkey as vital to peace because it is a relatively prosperous country in the Middle East more modernized and less vulnerable to slipping into conflicts over religion. Obviously, recent events in Turkey cast some doubts as to its stability, but it remains to be seen how destabilizing these protests will be. He details the importance of Saudi Arabias oil, but suggests Washington has been overly submissive to the Saudi royal family and its support of Islamic extremism in other countries. Key to our being able to bring some sort of peace to the Middle East is the settlement of the Israeli/ Palestinian situation. He faults Obama for not pushing Israel harder to make concessions. Regarding Washingtons conflict with Iran over its nuclear research program, Nasr argues that the Unites States botched those talks by setting compliance prerequisites that were politically impossible for Iran. The sanctions have crippled the Iranian economy, but have not produced concessions at the bargaining table. This has increasingly drawn Russia and China into support of Tehran, especially as a trading partner. Recent elections in Iran suggest some softening, but that remains to be seen. His view of the Iraqi situation is that the United States pulled its troops out before the political system matured, and that supporting the Nouri al-Maliki government was a disaster, having strengthened Irans predominate Shiite position against the Sunnis. In Egypt, the United States was hopeful about the election of Mohammed Morsi, but unfortunately his Muslim Brotherhood allies wanted to settle old rivalries. Morsis election was welcomed, but now old religious and political scores are being settled by the Brotherhood. Nasr criticizes Washington for not earlier pushing serious reform in Egypt a country with an enormous and immoveable bureaucracy that clearly needs to be dismantled. As for the Arab Spring, Nasr says Washington has given up hope and blames Obama for the debacle. Nasrs advocacy of a foreign policy based on diplomacy rather than military power is an attractive one and could potentially help control our debt problems. In his emphasis on the Middle East and Asia, he skips over the unsettling problem of nuclear weapons proliferation. Perhaps this is understandable in view of the geographical focus on the book, but proliferation is still a major global problem. Traditionally, America has liked Teddy Roosevelts policy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick. Is it ready for a smaller stick and more emphasis on diplomatic and economic pressure as the basis of a new global policy? It certainly would be easier for the American taxpayer. Alas, as many have pointed out, we live in a brutal and unjust world. Nasrs book offers a thoughtful and informed roadmap for the future of U.S. foreign policy not dependent on military interventions but, at the risk of sounding pessimistic, it will take a political miracle to break our addiction to using military force in global affairs.Michael Francis is a Sugarmill Woods resident who taught international politics and U.S. foreign policy at the University of Notre Dame for 39 years prior to retiring. He served as a chairman of the Department of Government and International Studies for six years, was director of Notre Dames 20 different foreign studies programs for five years, and held various other teaching and administration positions at the university.C4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARY 000FNOR August 12th 5:30 pm Celebrity Cat Pawty At Fat Cat Restaurant, Citrus Ave. in Crystal River Entrance Fee: $15 Ticket fee is good for 1 free glass of wine and hors doevres.

Small, mostly unknown names are leading the surge in stock markets. Companies like Entravision Communications, a Spanish-language media company; SunPower, a maker of solar panels, and MannKind, a biopharmaceutical company, have more than tripled in value. All are part of the Russell 2000, an index of small-company stocks that has outperformed other major indexes in 2013. The Russell 2000, as its name implies, includes about 2,000 companies with a market value ranging from $129 million to $3.3 billion. The index broke through 1,000 for the first time on July 5 and closed Friday at 1,048. It has jumped 23 percent this year. Thats better than the Standard & Poors 500 index, which is up 19 percent, and the Dow Jones industrial average, which has gained 18 percent. The Russells performance is even more impressive over the past 4 1/2 years. The index is up 205 percent since a bull market in stocks began in March 2009; the S&P 500 is up 150 percent. That suggests investors are slightly more comfortable buying stocks of smaller, riskier companies, than they are holding shares of big, multinational companies, like Exxon Mobil and Apple. The S&P 600, another index that tracks small-company stocks, is also reflecting the popularity of small caps. That index is up 24 percent this year. Investors have poured a net $18.2 billion into small-company mutual funds this year, according to Lipper, a company that tracks funds. If that Oil rises near $106 on strong China data NEW YORK The price of oil rose more than 2 percent Friday as positive economic news from China outweighed expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve would soon start withdrawing its bond-buying program. Benchmark crude for September delivery gained $2.57, or 2.5 percent, to close at $105.97 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil still finished with a loss of 97 cents. Meanwhile, U.S. drivers are paying a nickel less on average at the gas pump than they were a week ago. The national average for a gallon of gasoline fell a penny overnight to $3.58. Thats the lowest average price since July 13. China, the worlds No. 2 economy after the United States, reported Friday that Julys producer prices the price of goods as they leave factories fell less rapidly than a year earlier, a sign that demand may be improving. Global markets rise after positive news LONDON Another round of largely better-than-expected Chinese economic data lifted Asian and European stock markets on Friday, though Wall Street lagged as trading volumes were low due to the summer lull. In Europe, Britains FTSE 100 index rose 0.8 percent to close at 6,583.39 while Germanys DAX rose 0.2 percent to 8,338.31. The CAC-40 in France gained 0.3 percent to 4,076.55. Earlier in Asia, Japans Nikkei 225 index ended 0.1 percent higher at 13,615.19. The mood in China was a bit more positive after the figures. The Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.4 percent to 2,052.24.

Customers can buy original and limited edition works of art from more than 150 prominent galleries and dealers via Amazon Art. The announcement came Tuesday, a day after Seattlebased Amazon.com Inc. announced that its CEO, Jeff Bezos had purchased The Washington Post. Amazon Art features 40,000 works from more than 4,500 artists. The wide range of works includes folk art, impressionism and modern art. Prices range widely, too. Theres a photograph by Clifford Ross for $200 and a painting by Norman Rockwell for $4.85 million. The online marketplace offers detailed information about the artist, work, provenance and exhibition history.

The marriage between the newspaper industry and technology has never been consummated, but it could happen at The Washington Postnow, said media analyst Ken Doctor of Outsell Inc. Although Bezos bought The Postwith his own money, most experts believe he is likely to tether the newspaper to Amazon.com Inc.s products. He might also infuse the newspaper with some of the customer-first concepts that helped turn the Seattle company from an online book store into a multi-dimensional business that sells a multitude of merchandise and runs data centers that power other websites around the world. Just having his brain in the room will force people to confront digital in a way they havent before, predicted Jerry Ceppos, a former newspaper editor who is now dean of mass communications at Louisiana State University. Bezos, 49, made it clear that he has no magicAssociated PressAmazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is revered as one of the brightest minds in corporate America, but even he is still puzzling over how to reverse the financial slide threatening The Washington Post and other major U.S. newspapers. Creditors wont care about a divorce DEAR BRUCE: Our daughter divorced a year ago. In the divorce agreement, she retained the car that she and her exhusband were paying for. She was to refinance it as soon as possible to have his name taken off. After the divorce, she was out of work and could not obtain a loan. When she did get a job, no bank would give her a loan due to her low income. Her ex-husband sent her a letter stating he will take her to court to make her settle the car situation. She wrote him back explaining the problem and saying he can have the car and take over the loan if he wants it. He has remarried and has a better-paying job. She would love to sell the car, but cant get the amount that is still owed on the car. A couple of days ago, she was let go. Now she has no job to make payments. Her credit and her exhusbands credit will be blemished if she cant make the payments. Is there anything she can do? P .C., via email DEAR P.C.: Your daughter certainly has her hands full. The reality is that the car is under water. There is no way she is going to get her ex-husband to take over the payments. And due to her circumstances, it would be more difficult to find anybody to refinance the See MONEY/ Page D3 See POST/ Page D4 See WALL STREET/ Page D4

BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 D3 INTERNET ADVERTISING For information on how your business can advertise on the Chronicle Website call563-5592 automobile. I would make this very clear in a letter to the ex-husband: If he could provide some reasonable way to achieve the result he wants, she will follow it. The alternative is that, since she cant make the payment or have the payment transferred to her responsibility alone, the creditor will immediately go to her ex-husband. The holders of the paper only recognize that they have two signatures on the loan. They are not going to care about the divorce agreement. She might be able to get a short sale approved by the creditor. That means that the creditor would accept less and write off the difference. DEAR BRUCE: I would like to start an online womens apparel business. I have only $1,000 in savings. Is it possible to get off the ground with such a small amount of money? W.M., via email DEAR W.M.: I am not going to tell you its impossible, but almost. You might be able to do some business on eBay. The problem is, where are you going to get the merchandise with only $1,000 in savings? Unless you specialize in something like older garments that you will have to go out and find one at a time, I think you are heading up a very steep hill. Youll have to invest a lot of time in scrounging up the garments and listing them on eBay and selling them. Youll have to start slowly, but this could give you a decent start. DEAR BRUCE: We are a retired couple. We have our investments in a mutual fund, which pays us interest quarterly. Our money market, savings and checking are all in our sons name. We also have our childrens name on our condo title, as well as other assets. Is it necessary for us to have a will to avoid probate? We would not want our children to go through probate if we can avoid it. J.L., Las Vegas DEAR J.L.: I am somewhat in the dark as to why you are avoiding going through probate. If everything is as you said and there are no assets in your name, you should have a will just in case something is overlooked. It doesnt have to be filed for probate if there is nothing to be distributed under the will. But I think you are living a dangerous life with everything in your childrens names. If they have any financial difficulties, the creditors are going to come right after your assets. In my opinion, your money market, savings, checking, condo, etc., should be in your own name, but if you are comfortable, so be it. I would be scared to death. DEAR BRUCE: I recently read your article regarding time-shares. I know you dont like them, but they do serve some purposes. One of the couples was talking about spending $25,000 for a weeks vacation. I can offer them mine in Orlando, Fla., for $12,000. Its a two-bedroom, two-bath and sleeps six. The maintenance is $400 a year. We have enjoyed ours for several years, but our lifestyle has changed. U.S., via email DEAR U.S.: I dont recall the article where I said a couple is spending $25,000 for a weeks vacation. That is one hell of a vacation! What you are saying is that you have a time-share in Orlando for $12,000, with maintenance of $400 a year. That would be a bargain, other things being equal, but I dont believe that they are. The chances are that your time-share is not worth $12,000. I cant imagine that you will be able to get anything close to that amount. The fact that you have enjoyed it but your lifestyle has changed is understandable, but getting $12,000 for most time-shares is an impossible dream. DEAR BRUCE: My husband and I have four credit cards with approximately $5,000 in charges on each that we have been paying off. We always look for credit cards with better financing options. Once we find one, we transfer balances and close the old accounts. It seems we average about seven months on a card. Right now were paying 0 percent on all the cards, but transfer to other cards when the current deal expires. Will all of this shifting around of debt hurt our credit rating? Reader, via email DEAR READER: The constant transferring of money and opening new accounts is going to have an adverse effect on your credit rating. How adverse is another matter. The fact that you are doing all this juggling and paying 0 percent speaks well for your ability to juggle. Even if your credit rating is suffering to some degree, it is clearly offset by the interest that you are not paying. What you should be doing is trying to get the $20,000 paid off by making as large a payment as you can. It should be larger than the minimums because there is no interest to be paid. The maneuvering is OK, but the major thing is to get that rather substantial credit card debt in line. DEAR BRUCE: The company I work for asked me to participate in their 401(k) plan. They asked me to sign a paper noting that I could not withdraw or transfer the funds if I left their employment, as I have done. Is this legal? W.S., via email DEAR W.S.: I dont know what it was you signed. You should get a copy of this document and take it to an attorney who specializes in these matters. It may well be that youre restricted to a certain time period each year as to when you can withdraw it. The fact that I am not aware of such an arrangement does not make it illegal. First, get ahold of the document you signed. Second, have it reviewed by an attorney. The third step will be dictated by what you find. Send questions to bruce@bruce williams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns. Owing to the volume of mail, personal replies cannot be provided. MONEYContinued from Page D1 T-Mobile gains key customers ANICKJESDANUN Associated PressNEW YORK The iPhone and new pricing plans helped T-Mobile gain customers under contract plans for the first time in at least two and a half years, a major boost for a wireless carrier often dismissed as an afterthought in a market dominated by AT&T and Verizon. Contract customers are the most lucrative for wireless carriers. T-Mobile US Inc. added a net 688,000 contract customers in the April-June quarter, compared with a loss of 557,000 in the same period a year ago. In fact, it was the first gain since the fourth quarter of 2010, when T-Mobile started reporting comparable figures. Part of the boost came because the carrier began selling Apples iPhone for the first time in April. Although T-Mobiles gains through the iPhone might suggest a one-time occurrence rather than a sustainable comeback, T-Mobile said the iPhone accounted for only 26 percent of smartphone sales in the quarter, excluding sales through MetroPCS, which merged with T-Mobile on April 30. Other phones did well, including Samsungs Galaxy S4. The S4, which came out during the quarter, accounted for 18 percent of smartphone sales. T-Mobile credited new pricing plans, known as Simple Choice, with attracting new customers. In March, T-Mobile dropped its conventional two-year service contracts in favor of selling phones with installment plans. The price for voice, text and data services fell to reflect the new installment charge for a phone. But once customers pay off the phone after two years, or for customers who already have phones, their monthly bill goes down. Craig Moffett, an analyst at Moffett Research, said T-Mobiles gains in contract customers were five times analysts expectations of 140,000. We are witnessing what happens when the first credible price cutter arrives in an overpriced and saturated market, he said. 000FQFV DRYER VENT CLEANING DONT LET YOUR DRYER START A FIRE!

D4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS Speaker inspires many to be all they can be Afew years ago, I introduced you to Scott Burrows, a motivational speaker who truly is an inspiration. He not only could talk the talk, but he most assuredly could walk the walk which he did, literally, at the close of the Florida Workforce Development Super Heroes Summit I attended. In fact, Burrows walked right off the stage, down the center aisle and out the door to the auditorium. The crowd was on its feet cheering, and I venture to say there wasnt a dry eye in the house. This week, I was privileged to see Burrows again. And again, the audience was gobsmacked into a standing ovation. Why such emotional approbation? Burrows is a quadriplegic. Not was, but is. A nationally ranked scholar athlete and fierce competitor, he had played college football at Florida State University under Bobby Bowden and was a top-ranked kickboxing champion whose last victory aired on ESPN shortly before the horrific car accident in November 1984 that left him paralyzed from the chest down. He was 20 years old. And so it was with extraordinary effort that before our stunned eyes, Burrows manages to hoist himself out of his wheelchair and, clutching a golf club as a cane, makes a purposeful beeline for the exit. Cue the video of Burrows as an avid golfer and also doing things many of us dont, or wont: skydiving, scuba diving and playing wheelchair rugby a game originally, and aptly, dubbed murderball. He has also earned a degree in finance and a seat at the Premier Association of Financial Professionals Million Dollar Round Table, launched a successful career as an international entrepreneur and is a respected author and speaker. Talk about vision. Talk about mindset. Talk about grit. I dont know about you, but there were days when I thought I was so mired in tough times that I struggled just to get out of bed in the morning, and here is someone who gets out of his wheelchair. My question to you is this: Are you out of work and struggling to get back on your feet? Are you an employer who may be afraid of taking that first tentative step toward expanding your staff? If so, then take a chapter from Burrows book, Vision, Mindset, Grit: How to Stand Up When Life Paralyzes You. It starts with vision, the conviction, that you will find reemployment or, if you are an employer, that you will find your next great employee. Next, set your mind to it; mindset, Burrows tells us, is what you do with what you can control. You may not think so, but lack of employability skills or experience is not beyond your control. Workforce Connection has trained placement specialists, workshops and resources to help your vision come into clear focus. Lastly, dont let your fear handicap or paralyze you into inaction. Burrows said he was willing to fail but unwilling to quit. Youve got to have the grit, the determination, to pull yourself out of your own figurative wheelchair, and take that first step. It may not be easy, but were here to help ensure you take that step in the right direction. Workforce Connection services are offered at no charge. Learn more by calling our Citrus County team at 352-637-2223.Laura Byrnes, APR, is Workforce Connections communications manager and a Florida Certified Workforce Professional.

The newspaper is the anchor of a division that lost $54 million at The Washington Post Co. last year while generating revenue of $582 million 39 percent less than it did in 2005. There is no map, and charting a path ahead will not be easy, Bezos wrote in a Monday letter sent to Postemployees after his surprise acquisition was announced. We will need to invent, which means we will need to experiment. According to an Amazon spokesman, Bezos wasnt available to be interviewed Tuesday about his plans for thePost. Bezos purchase of The Postmakes him the latest billionaire to funnel some of his money into the ailing newspaper industry. Berkshire Hathaway Inc. CEO Warren Buffett has assembled a portfolio of more than 30 small and mediumsized newspapers while Boston Red Sox owner John Henry recently agreed to pay $70 million for his hometown newspaper, The Boston Globe. Buffett, renowned for investing in outof-favor companies, also happens to be one of the largest shareholders in The Washington Post Co., which is selling its namesake newspaper to Bezos. Buffetts penchant for going against the grain and focusing on long-term investments are qualities Bezos has embraced with phenomenal success. Amazons nearly two-decade history under Bezos leadership suggests The Postis likely to try things that other newspapers steeped in tradition have never dared to attempt. Ever since he was a little kid, it got deeply ingrained into Jeff that experimentation is the answer to everything, said Hal Gregerson, who interviewed Bezos for his 2011 book, The Innovators DNA. Exploring the edges is one of Jeffs counterintuitive skills. If you go back to when he started Amazon, he was paying attention to something out of the corner of his eye and turned it into something that others didnt see. Its impossible to predict the bright ideas Bezos might explore, partly because reviving the Postwould probably take years to pull off. Experts are floating a host of possibilities. Bezos could, for instance, deploy the technology that Amazon uses to recommend books, movies and music to consumers to enable the Postto automatically tailor digital news packages to each readers interests. He might impose more fees to read the Postscontent online. At the same time, he might bundle free subscriptions as part of Amazons Kindle Fire tablet or for consumers who buy Amazons Prime service for free shipping. He could even include special offers in the printed edition for discounted or free Amazon.com deliveries. The Postand other newspapers might not be around that much longer, unless radical changes are made. Some of the biggest newspapers already have had to seek refuge in bankruptcy court to reshuffle their finances during the past five years and the outlook still looks grim. Based on his recent conversations with publishers, analyst Doctor believes revenue is likely to continue to slip for the next five years, too. Newspapers have been suffering because their main source of revenue advertising sold in their print editions has been falling sharply during the past eight years as marketers discovered they could target their messages at prospective customers more effectively through Googles search engine, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and a variety of other digital outlets. Most newspapers have intensified their focus on their own digital editions during the past few years, but still havent been able to overcome this fundamental problem: digital ads typically sell for 10 percent to 50 percent less than print ads. That gap is the chief reason that the annual print ad revenue at U.S. newspapers has plummeted 60 percent in just seven years, dropping from $47.4 billion in 2005 to $18.9 billion last year, according to the Newspaper Association of America. Over the same stretch, the industrys digital ad revenue has climbed from $2 billion in 2005 to $3.4 billion last year. Bezos has been making rapid inroads in digital advertising at Amazon. The companys annual ad revenue is expected to total about $835 million this year, up 37 percent from $610 million last year, according to estimates from the research firm eMarketer. But newspapers are mired in such a deep financial hole that it will be difficult for even a savvy Internet executive like Bezos to find a workable solution at The Post, said Christopher Harper, a journalism professor at Temple University. Its not really a business deal, its almost an investment in a nonprofit, Harper said. Its one Bezos can easily afford to make. The purchase price works out to just 1 percent of Bezos estimated $25 billion fortune. In the U.S., the median charitable contribution works out to nearly 5 percent of annual discretionary income, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy. Bezos is also in a better position to absorb ongoing losses at The Washington Postthan the newspaper would have been had it remained part of a publicly held company under pressure to deliver better returns for a larger pool of shareholders. One of the smartest things is moving toward private ownership, said Ellen Shearer, a journalism professor at Northwestern University. I think thats what a lot of papers need right now, particularly The Post. Its likely that some of his ideas will fail, but that probably wont bother Bezos. In his inaugural letter to Amazon shareholders in 1997, Bezos emphasized, Its all about the long term. He has attached that proclamation to each annual letter hes written since. Indeed, it took Amazon nearly a decade before it turned its first annual profit. Even now, the company doesnt make as much money as most analysts think it should, partly because Bezos is continually investing in new ideas and equipment that he believes will make the business even more lucrative. After subtracting the $3 billion of losses sustained during its early years, Amazon has earned a combined $2 billion since its inception. In comparison, Google Inc. a company born four years later than Amazon is now earning more than $3 billion every three months. Bezos strategy at Amazon.com has worked well so far, gracing so far with a market value of $137 billion. One thing that Bezos seems to be is patient, said Jeff South, a former newspaper editor and reporter who is now a journalism professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. He was with Amazon, losing money quarter after quarter. He seemed to say we know what were doing, its going to take time. Hopefully, that can transfer to newspapers. After getting to know Bezos while interviewing him for his book, Gregerson is convinced the Postpurchase is a case of business mixing with personal passion. Jeff loves books, he loves journalism, he loves writing, he loves ideas and he love to make things happen, Gregerson said. Thats a quality 90 percent of executives dont have. They dont love the essence of what they are doing as much Jeff does. I dont know what answers he will have in terms of a 10-year plan for thePost, but I think there is a good probabilPOSTContinued from Page D1 BUSINESS DIGEST Seven Rivers appoints new staff leadership CRYSTAL RIVER Seven Rivers Regional Medical Centers mission to serve the community with excellence in health care is strengthened by the support of the affiliated medical staff and its leadership.

Labor dept. launches smartphone contestWASHINGTON As part of the 75th anniversary of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the U.S. Department of Labors Wage and Hour Division is challenging innovative minds to develop a smartphone application that will transform the way the public is able to use departmental enforcement data. By providing consumers with information at their fingertips about which businesses have treated their workers fairly and lawfully, the creator of this application will help empower consumers to make informed choices about where to bring their business. The DOL Fair Labor Data Challenge calls for creating a smartphone app that integrates the departments publicly available enforcement data with consumer ratings websites, geopositioning sites, and other relevant data sets, such as those available from state health boards. The app we would like to see developed would work with existing social media and would allow consumers to see if an establishment that they want to frequent has been in compliance with federal labor laws, said Laura Fortman, principal deputy administrator of the Wage and Hour Division.

Here are the factors behind the rise in smallcompany stocks.MORERISK, MORERETURNTypically, small-company stocks are riskier investments than larger companies. The companies tend to be relatively young; its harder for them to raise money to expand; and they are more vulnerable during downturns because they arent as diversified as big companies. But in times of economic growth and rising stock markets, like now, demand for small-company stocks goes up because investors are more comfortable taking on risk. And small companies can reward risk-takers with bigger returns. The S&P 500 has risen 22 of the last 30 years. In those years when the broader market gained, the Russell outperformed the S&P 500 about 64 percent of the time. The indexs best year was 2003, when it soared 45 percent, compared with 26 percent for the S&P 500.BETTERGROWTHIn an economy that is expanding slowly, rather than powering ahead, many companies are finding growth hard. When corporations finish reporting second-quarter results, revenue for companies in the Standard & Poors 500 is forecast to have declined 0.6 percent compared with the second quarter of 2012. But smaller companies entering new niches can grow quickly. Digital marketing is one area of strong growth as smartphones and tablet computers soar in popularity. The majority of Americans now own a smartphone of some kind, according to a survey published by the Pew Research Center on June 5. Smartphone adaptation among U.S. adults has climbed to 56 percent from only 35 percent two years ago.ACQUISITIONTARGETSHigher growth rates make some small companies tempting acquisitions for larger rivals, who can boost their revenue growth by absorbing them. Many of the big gainers in the Russell this year are acquisition targets. The reason? Big companies often pay a premium to acquire a company. When investors think a deal may be coming, their buying boosts a small companys stock price. WALL STREETContinued from Page D1

Michael an envelope of hard black seeds from the domestic Chinese Irises growing in my garden. He scattered a few dry seeds at the bases of the crape myrtles he had planted along his roadside property line facing my home. The seeds did not sprout until after the rains came and the soil had warmed to more than 75 degrees in late June this year. Mike wondered if the wildlife had eaten them all, or if they had rotted or died over the winter. He walked over to tell me of his surprise at finding little iris plants all along the border. I went looking for seedlings that had sown themselves around my property. There were many that needed to be moved to better locations. I dug them from the lawn and beds then planted them in small groups of three to five plants 3 to 4 feet back from the sand path walking trail along the east border planting bed. The irises will get more than 2 feet tall by next year, when they will flower for the first time. In the Iris family, this original Chinese Iris, Iris domestica, was often called Blackberry Lily or Leopard Lily in the past. It had been named Belamcandachinensis until accurate DNA testing proved the error. It has been grown as a cultivated garden perennial for millennia in Asia. The strap-like flat leaves fan out from a root tuber that develops as the plant grows. Leaves are about 1.5 inches wide on mature plants; they last only one season, and die off after the flower stem has set seed. New leaves sprout from the established tuber and roots. These last remain evergreen over winter in Central Florida. Further north, cover them with a few inches of pine needle mulch to insulate against frost. Slender flower stems emerge from the clump in summer to fall starting in July locally. Six slim petals about an inch long form a flower around pollentipped stamens. The flowers are quite un-irislike. Petals are apricot to deep orange-red. Some forms can have yellow petals. Petals are often speckled with dark spots, hence the name Leopard Iris (not lily). Common names vary from country to country and from gardener to gardener. Seeds soon form in pods that open to reveal a tight cluster of hard black seeds resembling a blackberry in form hence the common name Blackberry Iris. After years of calling this lovey Iris something else, it is hard to remember to say iris. However, I do not want to misinform young Michael and Emma who have just started to learn about gardening in their first house. Chinese Domestic Iris, Blackberry Iris or Leopard Iris whichever you call it grows well in full sun. Soil should be humus-rich and well-drained. They enjoy lots of water in hot weather, so thrive in Floridas hot, wet summers. They grow best in cold zones 8 to 11.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant.

Some garden flowers are annuals that grow from seed each year, flower, set seed and then die. New seedlings sprout the following season. Other plants are perennials that last for several years. Perennials also have a fixed life span of a few to many years. As perennials get old and produce fewer flowers, gardeners replace them with younger plants made from divisions, cuttings or seeds. Plant propagation is one of the joys of gardening.

This time of year, Citrus County is experiencing intense heat characteristic of the dog days of summer, along with a regular dousing of afternoon showers. These weather conditions are ideal for mosquito breeding. You may have not given it much thought, but you can limit mosquito populations by diligently limiting breeding sites around your home. If there are any hidden places around your home where water collects, such as water-holding containers, storm drains, clogged rain gutters, swimming pools, ornamental ponds, etc. you may be breeding mosquitoes! All mosquitoes need water to pass through their life stages. Adult flying mosquitoes can rest in grass, shrubbery or other foliage, but they never breed there. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water where they hatch in a day or two. Other mosquitoes lay their eggs in old tires, tin cans and other such waterholding containers. The mosquitoes may remain unhatched for weeks, months or until they are covered with water. The mosquito wigglers or larvae grow quickly and turn into tumblers or pupae. Then the skin of the tumbler opens and out climbs a hungry adult mosquito. Scout your yard and implement the following actions: 1. Empty, drain, remove, cover or turn upside down things that can hold water.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E9 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The Golden Girl WEEKS REALTY, 5 BEVERLY HILLS BLVD.

Throw out old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, and other containers or keep them upside down so no water can enter them. 2. Empty any small plastic wading pools weekly. Store them indoors when not in use. Properly maintain your swimming pool and keep it covered so as not to collect water. 3. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Dont let runoff water from your air conditioner collect in shady areas. 4. Change water and scrub birdbaths once a week. 5. Empty and refill pets water pans daily. 6. Discard old tires or store them indoors. 7. Tip wheel barrows or other garden carts on end to avoid collecting water. As everyone knows, mosquitoes are troublesome pests which can cause itchy bites and transmit viruses. The best way to avoid being bitten is to stay clear of mosquito-infested areas and wear protective clothing and insect repellent.The more skin you cover with layers of clothing, the fewer bites you will receive. Female mosquitoes feed on blood to help their eggs develop. When mosquitoes bite, they release saliva into the bite area. Allergic reactions to the saliva cause the itchy bumps and swollen hives some people get after being bitten. If a mosquito is carrying a virus, that virus can be transferred toCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E5 E8SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000FPV5 311 W.

Mosquito-borne diseases currently of public health concern in Florida include St. Louis encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus encephalitis, and dengue fever. Another option is applying topical repellents. Repellents are used to repel mosquitoes they do not kill them. The best repellents provide protection for a long period of time per application. Current repellents are either synthetic or plant-derived chemicals available in spray, wipe-on, foam or lotion formulas. DEET is a highly effective repellent. DEET may not be on a products labelits chemical names might be listed instead: N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide, N,Ndiemethylbenzamide In addition to DEET, the CDC added the following to its list of recommended repellents: Picaridin (chemical name: 1-Piperidinecarboxylic acid; 2-(2-hydroxyethyl);1-methyl propylester), and oil of lemoneucalyptus (chemical name: p-menthane 3,8-diol (PMD)). The EPA has determined that correct and normal usage of DEET is not a health concern. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using DEET products with a 30 percent concentration or less on children. Insect repellents shouldnt be used at all on children younger than 2 months old.

Once its cool, place the bread in a plastic bag, which will help soften the crust and make it a bit more like store-bought. Sandwich Bread 3 cups lukewarm water. 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. 2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 packets). 1 tablespoon salt. 1/2 cup butter (or shortening or salad oil). 10 cups of flour. In a large, warmed bowl, add 1 cup lukewarm water, 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir until yeast is dissolved. Stir in 2 cups lukewarm water, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, salt and butter. Beat ingredients, then stir in 9 cups of flour, adding them 1 cup at a time. Use the last cup of flour to flour your countertop surface for kneading. Knead until dough becomes elastic, approximately five minutes. After kneading, put the dough in a large, oiled bowl and flip to coat both sides with oil. Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm place. Let it rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough to remove air bubbles and divide into three pieces. Shape into loaves and put into greased loaf pans. Cover pans with dishtowels and place in a warm area for another hour. Loaves should double in size. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. It is ready when it turns golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a cooling rack.Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugal village. com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

FRUGALContinued from Page E4 MOSQUITOESContinued from Page E5 AMYLORENTZEN Associated PressIf theres somewhere in your home that needs livening up but its not practical to use real plants, consider using faux flowers and greenery. And dont worry about it. Decorators, or maybe your mother, used to tell you to skip the fake stuff if you wanted to stay classy. But improved manufacturing and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation. The technology has come a long way. They look so real now its hard to tell, says Kathie Chrisicos, designer and president of Bostonbased Chrisicos Interiors.Selection savvyWhen youre shopping for faux, pay attention to detail. Manufactured plants and flowers should have the variations in color, texture and density that live plants do, including the look of new growth and old growth, says Doug Hopeman, owner of the Nashville, Tenn.-based Artificial Plants and Trees. Visible stems, branches and trunks should appear realistic. The ability to create the minute, intricate detail of everything about the plants and trees helps make them more natural-looking than they were 10 years ago, he says. You can choose from an array of products. People often choose real plants that arent native to their region, so dont feel limited to the varieties found near you when buying artificial ones, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores. When it comes to creativity, there is no right or wrong way to choose, she says. The great thing is that artificial flowers and plants offer the flexibility to choose what you want when you want, regardless of the season or your region. Current trends in greenery include palms and succulents, as well as potted herbs such as lavender and rosemary, and small leafy plants and ivies. Peonies, mums, dahlias, sunflowers and hydrangeas are among popular silk florals.Perfect presentationArtificial plants are easy to manipulate. You can bend stems and branches to make them reach toward natural light or fit into a certain space or container, and then change it up so it doesnt always look the same. Ive had people tell me my plant was really growing when, in fact, Im just repositioning it occasionally, Pearson says. To arrange petals, stems and foliage on artificial products, check out photos of live plants online. For Stephanie Norris, the designer behind San Diego-based Cre8tive Designs Inc., using faux plants requires choosing the right containers, and accessories such as real soil, sand and stones. Its a little more texture, she says. Its dressing it up, which is really the finishing touch with using an artificial plant.Outdoor interestSome homeowners mix artificial greenery into their landscaping in areas where live plants dont thrive. Its that side of your house that has no light, and every season youre putting new topiaries out there, Hopeman says. Thats the perfect opportunity for an artificial plant. Norris says she mixes artificial with live plants at her home for a lusher look. Among her favorites are small boxwoods sold by IKEA.Minimal maintenanceBecause you dont have to prune, water or fertilize faux foliage and florals, theyre perfect for people who dont have a green thumb, who travel a lot or who have allergies. While we all love real plants, sometimes real plants just arent practical, Pearson says. Keeping artificial plants looking their best usually requires no more than dusting or wiping with a damp cloth. Many can be rinsed off in the shower or outdoors with a hose on a gentle setting. Youll want to replace faux plants whenever you see signs of fading. Hopeman says faux plants are a great choice for a drab or dark area where nothing will grow. And, of course, you should still buy your wife fresh flowers, he adds. Fake plants can add life to dull spaces Associated PressA Michaels Outdoor Vase with an artificial floral arrangement. People often choose plants that arent native to their region, so don't feel limited to a variety of flower or plant found in your locale, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores.

There was a great sale on strawberries recently at the local farm, but I didnt have much time that night to put them up, so I passed. I usually wash, crush or slice my berries, add sugar and bag them in gallon-sized bags. But could I freeze the berries whole? I wonder if I could wash, pat dry, hull and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then transfer them to a larger container with an airtight lid in the freezer. Have you done it this way with success? Most of our strawberries are used in smoothies, so texture after thawing is not an issue. Susan, emailDear Susan: Yes, you can freeze them whole, exactly the way that youre planning on trying. I prefer this method for freezing whole strawberries, but you can put them in a freezer bag immediately if your plans are to just use them for smoothies. Id remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Not an ideal way to go about it because they tend to clump together, but its better than losing out on the sale or having them rot because you dont have enough time. Dear Sara: How can I remove a bluish-green ring stain in my porcelain toilet bowl? I have tried Bar Keepers Friend, vinegar, baking soda and a combination of vinegar and baking soda, with no success. D.L., VirginiaDear D.L.: Sounds like mineral deposits. Try dropping a couple of Efferdent denturecleaning tablets into the bowl. Leave overnight and then clean the toilet as usual. Dear Sara: I grew up on homemade bread, but my husband never had it until we got together. He likes it for buttered bread, but not much else. I need to find a recipe thats as close to store-bought as I can, as our local bread outlet has closed and I know its cheaper to make at home. Any suggestions? S.B., Maine See FRUGAL / Page E8 Figure looks to be work of noted Austrian sculptor Dear John: I am interested in selling the porcelain parrot lamp in the attached photo. It is approximately 18 inches from tabletop to head. I cannot find any markings on the base. Are you able to give us any information on this lamp? D.G., InternetDear D.G.: I think your porcelain figural parrot lamp was made in Germany between World I and II. The underside of the parrot should be examined for a makers mark; it could make a considerable difference in potential dollar value. If the parrot is not glued to the base, remove it and see if it is marked. Let me know what you discover. Dear John: I have two schoolbooks. One is an arithmetic book from the year 1866, called Rudiments of Arithmetic by Van Antwerp, Bragg & Co. The other book is Universal History from the Creation of the World to the Decease of George III, 1820, New York Harper & Brothers, Publishers. On the cover of the history book it has Ohio School Library. They are both in fair condition, but there is some wear on the arithmetic book. Can you tell me what they are worth, if anything, and who might want them? M.B., InternetDear M.B.: I was not able to find any specific collector interest in the two books. You might consider a donation to the local library. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I have a friend who is not in good health and has a room full of sports memorabilia. He has agreed to dispose of it. He is amenable to having someone come, appraise it, and market it for a commission, natch. It consists of letters from famous sports figures, autographed pictures, autographed hockey pucks, and hundreds of baseball cards. Do you know someone in the area who might be qualified and able to help him? B.C., InternetDear B.C.: Wow, sounds like a nice collection. I suggest you contact an auction company that specializes in sports memorabilia. Lelands is one of the big boys on the block in the category of sports memorabilia. Before you contact them, make an informal list of the collection. The website is www. lelands.com. Let us know how things work out. Dear John: I have a porcelain tea set, including a pot, sugar bowl with lid, five cups and six saucers, which was given to my family by T.V. Soong, brother of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, in 1914.

I wonder if I could wash, pat dry, hull and lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze them, then transfer them to a larger container with an airtight lid in the freezer. Have you done it this way with success? Most of our strawberries are used in smoothies, so texture after thawing is not an issue. Susan, emailDear Susan: Yes, you can freeze them whole, exactly the way that youre planning on trying. I prefer this method for freezing whole strawberries, but you can put them in a freezer bag immediately if your plans are to just use them for smoothies. Id remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag. Not an ideal way to go about it because they tend to clump together, but its better than losing out on the sale or having them rot because you dont have enough time. Dear Sara: How can I remove a bluish-green ring stain in my porcelain toilet bowl? I have tried Bar Keepers Friend, vinegar, baking soda and a combination of vinegar and baking soda, with no success. D.L., VirginiaDear D.L.: Sounds like mineral deposits. Try dropping a couple of Efferdent denturecleaning tablets into the bowl. Leave overnight and then clean the toilet as usual. Dear Sara: I grew up on homemade bread, but my husband never had it until we got together. He likes it for buttered bread, but not much else. I need to find a recipe thats as close to store-bought as I can, as our local bread outlet has closed and I know its cheaper to make at home. Any suggestions? S.B., Maine See FRUGAL / Page E8 Figure looks to be work of noted Austrian sculptor Dear John: I am interested in selling the porcelain parrot lamp in the attached photo. It is approximately 18 inches from tabletop to head. I cannot find any markings on the base. Are you able to give us any information on this lamp? D.G., InternetDear D.G.: I think your porcelain figural parrot lamp was made in Germany between World I and II. The underside of the parrot should be examined for a makers mark; it could make a considerable difference in potential dollar value. If the parrot is not glued to the base, remove it and see if it is marked. Let me know what you discover. Dear John: I have two schoolbooks. One is an arithmetic book from the year 1866, called Rudiments of Arithmetic by Van Antwerp, Bragg & Co. The other book is Universal History from the Creation of the World to the Decease of George III, 1820, New York Harper & Brothers, Publishers. On the cover of the history book it has Ohio School Library. They are both in fair condition, but there is some wear on the arithmetic book. Can you tell me what they are worth, if anything, and who might want them? M.B., InternetDear M.B.: I was not able to find any specific collector interest in the two books. You might consider a donation to the local library. Potential dollar value is catch-as-catch-can. Dear John: I have a friend who is not in good health and has a room full of sports memorabilia. He has agreed to dispose of it. He is amenable to having someone come, appraise it, and market it for a commission, natch. It consists of letters from famous sports figures, autographed pictures, autographed hockey pucks, and hundreds of baseball cards. Do you know someone in the area who might be qualified and able to help him? B.C., InternetDear B.C.: Wow, sounds like a nice collection. I suggest you contact an auction company that specializes in sports memorabilia. Lelands is one of the big boys on the block in the category of sports memorabilia. Before you contact them, make an informal list of the collection. The website is www. lelands.com. Let us know how things work out. Dear John: I have a porcelain tea set, including a pot, sugar bowl with lid, five cups and six saucers, which was given to my family by T.V. Soong, brother of Madame Chiang Kai-shek, in 1914.

Throw out old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums, and other containers or keep them upside down so no water can enter them. 2. Empty any small plastic wading pools weekly. Store them indoors when not in use. Properly maintain your swimming pool and keep it covered so as not to collect water. 3. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets. Dont let runoff water from your air conditioner collect in shady areas. 4. Change water and scrub birdbaths once a week. 5. Empty and refill pets water pans daily. 6. Discard old tires or store them indoors. 7. Tip wheel barrows or other garden carts on end to avoid collecting water. As everyone knows, mosquitoes are troublesome pests which can cause itchy bites and transmit viruses. The best way to avoid being bitten is to stay clear of mosquito-infested areas and wear protective clothing and insect repellent.The more skin you cover with layers of clothing, the fewer bites you will receive. Female mosquitoes feed on blood to help their eggs develop. When mosquitoes bite, they release saliva into the bite area. Allergic reactions to the saliva cause the itchy bumps and swollen hives some people get after being bitten. If a mosquito is carrying a virus, that virus can be transferred toCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E5 E8SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000FPV5 311 W.

Mosquito-borne diseases currently of public health concern in Florida include St. Louis encephalitis, eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus encephalitis, and dengue fever. Another option is applying topical repellents. Repellents are used to repel mosquitoes they do not kill them. The best repellents provide protection for a long period of time per application. Current repellents are either synthetic or plant-derived chemicals available in spray, wipe-on, foam or lotion formulas. DEET is a highly effective repellent. DEET may not be on a products labelits chemical names might be listed instead: N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide, N,Ndiemethylbenzamide In addition to DEET, the CDC added the following to its list of recommended repellents: Picaridin (chemical name: 1-Piperidinecarboxylic acid; 2-(2-hydroxyethyl);1-methyl propylester), and oil of lemoneucalyptus (chemical name: p-menthane 3,8-diol (PMD)). The EPA has determined that correct and normal usage of DEET is not a health concern. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using DEET products with a 30 percent concentration or less on children. Insect repellents shouldnt be used at all on children younger than 2 months old.

Once its cool, place the bread in a plastic bag, which will help soften the crust and make it a bit more like store-bought. Sandwich Bread 3 cups lukewarm water. 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. 2 tablespoons yeast (or 2 packets). 1 tablespoon salt. 1/2 cup butter (or shortening or salad oil). 10 cups of flour. In a large, warmed bowl, add 1 cup lukewarm water, 1 teaspoon granulated sugar and yeast. Let stand 10 minutes, then stir until yeast is dissolved. Stir in 2 cups lukewarm water, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, salt and butter. Beat ingredients, then stir in 9 cups of flour, adding them 1 cup at a time. Use the last cup of flour to flour your countertop surface for kneading. Knead until dough becomes elastic, approximately five minutes. After kneading, put the dough in a large, oiled bowl and flip to coat both sides with oil. Loosely cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm place. Let it rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough to remove air bubbles and divide into three pieces. Shape into loaves and put into greased loaf pans. Cover pans with dishtowels and place in a warm area for another hour. Loaves should double in size. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. It is ready when it turns golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a cooling rack.Sara Noel is the owner of Frugal Village (www.frugal village. com), a website that offers practical, money-saving strategies for everyday living.

FRUGALContinued from Page E4 MOSQUITOESContinued from Page E5 AMYLORENTZEN Associated PressIf theres somewhere in your home that needs livening up but its not practical to use real plants, consider using faux flowers and greenery. And dont worry about it. Decorators, or maybe your mother, used to tell you to skip the fake stuff if you wanted to stay classy. But improved manufacturing and materials are giving artificial plants and silk flowers a fresh reputation. The technology has come a long way. They look so real now its hard to tell, says Kathie Chrisicos, designer and president of Bostonbased Chrisicos Interiors.Selection savvyWhen youre shopping for faux, pay attention to detail. Manufactured plants and flowers should have the variations in color, texture and density that live plants do, including the look of new growth and old growth, says Doug Hopeman, owner of the Nashville, Tenn.-based Artificial Plants and Trees. Visible stems, branches and trunks should appear realistic. The ability to create the minute, intricate detail of everything about the plants and trees helps make them more natural-looking than they were 10 years ago, he says. You can choose from an array of products. People often choose real plants that arent native to their region, so dont feel limited to the varieties found near you when buying artificial ones, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores. When it comes to creativity, there is no right or wrong way to choose, she says. The great thing is that artificial flowers and plants offer the flexibility to choose what you want when you want, regardless of the season or your region. Current trends in greenery include palms and succulents, as well as potted herbs such as lavender and rosemary, and small leafy plants and ivies. Peonies, mums, dahlias, sunflowers and hydrangeas are among popular silk florals.Perfect presentationArtificial plants are easy to manipulate. You can bend stems and branches to make them reach toward natural light or fit into a certain space or container, and then change it up so it doesnt always look the same. Ive had people tell me my plant was really growing when, in fact, Im just repositioning it occasionally, Pearson says. To arrange petals, stems and foliage on artificial products, check out photos of live plants online. For Stephanie Norris, the designer behind San Diego-based Cre8tive Designs Inc., using faux plants requires choosing the right containers, and accessories such as real soil, sand and stones. Its a little more texture, she says. Its dressing it up, which is really the finishing touch with using an artificial plant.Outdoor interestSome homeowners mix artificial greenery into their landscaping in areas where live plants dont thrive. Its that side of your house that has no light, and every season youre putting new topiaries out there, Hopeman says. Thats the perfect opportunity for an artificial plant. Norris says she mixes artificial with live plants at her home for a lusher look. Among her favorites are small boxwoods sold by IKEA.Minimal maintenanceBecause you dont have to prune, water or fertilize faux foliage and florals, theyre perfect for people who dont have a green thumb, who travel a lot or who have allergies. While we all love real plants, sometimes real plants just arent practical, Pearson says. Keeping artificial plants looking their best usually requires no more than dusting or wiping with a damp cloth. Many can be rinsed off in the shower or outdoors with a hose on a gentle setting. Youll want to replace faux plants whenever you see signs of fading. Hopeman says faux plants are a great choice for a drab or dark area where nothing will grow. And, of course, you should still buy your wife fresh flowers, he adds. Fake plants can add life to dull spaces Associated PressA Michaels Outdoor Vase with an artificial floral arrangement. People often choose plants that arent native to their region, so don't feel limited to a variety of flower or plant found in your locale, says Jo Pearson, a creative expert with Michaels Stores.

This time of year, Citrus County is experiencing intense heat characteristic of the dog days of summer, along with a regular dousing of afternoon showers. These weather conditions are ideal for mosquito breeding. You may have not given it much thought, but you can limit mosquito populations by diligently limiting breeding sites around your home. If there are any hidden places around your home where water collects, such as water-holding containers, storm drains, clogged rain gutters, swimming pools, ornamental ponds, etc. you may be breeding mosquitoes! All mosquitoes need water to pass through their life stages. Adult flying mosquitoes can rest in grass, shrubbery or other foliage, but they never breed there. Some mosquitoes lay their eggs in standing water where they hatch in a day or two. Other mosquitoes lay their eggs in old tires, tin cans and other such waterholding containers. The mosquitoes may remain unhatched for weeks, months or until they are covered with water. The mosquito wigglers or larvae grow quickly and turn into tumblers or pupae. Then the skin of the tumbler opens and out climbs a hungry adult mosquito. Scout your yard and implement the following actions: 1. Empty, drain, remove, cover or turn upside down things that can hold water.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013E9 E4SUNDAY, AUGUST11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The Golden Girl WEEKS REALTY, 5 BEVERLY HILLS BLVD.

Some garden flowers are annuals that grow from seed each year, flower, set seed and then die. New seedlings sprout the following season. Other plants are perennials that last for several years. Perennials also have a fixed life span of a few to many years. As perennials get old and produce fewer flowers, gardeners replace them with younger plants made from divisions, cuttings or seeds. Plant propagation is one of the joys of gardening.
