Associated PressWASHINGTON About half the people who now buy their own health insurance and potentially would face higher premiums next year under President Barack Obamas health care law would qualify for federal tax credits to offset rate shock, according to a new private study. Many other people, however, earn too much money to be eligible for help, and could end up paying more. The estimate, being released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, tries to answer one of the biggest remaining questions about the impact of Obamas law on American families: Will consumers wince or even balk when they see the premiums for the new plans? The study found that 48 percent of families currently buying their own coverage would be eligible for tax credits next year, averaging $5,548 per family, or 66 percent of the average cost of a benchmark silver policy offered through new state insurance markets. About half of the people wont be paying the sticker price, said Gary Claxton, director of the health care marketplace project at Kaiser, an information clearinghouse on the health care system. The people who get help will get quite a lot of help. Many, but certainly not all, of the people who dont get tax credits will pay more, he said. How much more will be a function of a lot of different things. For example, some people who dont qualify for tax credits may get jobs that offer coverage, added Claxton, a co-author of the study. And the bottom line on premiums may not be clear until sometime this fall, after the Health and Human Services Department releases rates for more than 30 states where the federal government is taking the lead setting up new insurance markets for individuals and small businesses. People can enroll starting Oct. 1, and coverage becomes effective Jan. 1. Most people currently covered by employer plans are not affected. The law is likely to increase the sticker price for individually purchased coverage next year for several reasons:Insurers will have to cover people with preexisting medical conditions, whose needs are costlier to provide for.Policies must provide certain standard benefits, including prescription drugs, mental health and substance abuse treatment and rehabilitative services.

Board shelves Thorpes retirement MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus County commissioners voted 3-2 Tuesday night to allow Brad Thorpe to un-retire. Thorpe, the county administrator who announced his retirement in May, said he would stay on the job as long as hes wanted. I will tell you, if my health is good and the board wants me, Ill stay as long as I can, Thorpe said. The board may not want me in the future. Thats the risk I take as an administrator. Commissioners Dennis Damato, J.J. Kenney and Chairman Joe Meek said Thorpe is a valuable asset to the county. If we have an opportunity to keep Mr. Thorpe on board, we should jump on that, Meek said. Commissioners Scott Adams and Rebecca Bays wanted the board to continue with the process of finding Thorpes replacement. Its nothing to do with Brad as a person, Bays said. Im going to separate business from personal friendship. Its not that he doesnt have a heart for it. His direction and my direction are polar opposites. CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Not all county commissioners were on board Tuesday to send 10 county staff members to Maryland for an integrated emergency management course. In a 3-2 vote, the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners agreed to spend $1,000 for food for 10 selected staffers to attend the course, sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) from March 10 through March 13, 2014, in Emmitsburg, Md., with their travel and lodging paid for by the Department of Homeland Security.FEMA training gets nod Artifacts found in Silver Springs Archaeologists survey site Associated PressSILVER SPRINGS Scientists have uncovered a treasure trove of buried materials in Silver Springs crystal-clear waters.The Ocala Star-Bannerreported University of Florida experts estimate theyve uncovered some 10,000 artifacts, mostly ancient tools and lithic debitage, or the sharp flakes left behind during the making of arrows and spear tips.

SIDIBE Staff writerThe annual winter, man-led migration of whooping cranes to the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge was canceled for the second year in a row. But unlike last year, this years cancellation is due to budgetary issues. Michael Lusk, the manager of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge complex, said the federal sequester will make it impossible to bring the cranes here. The cranes will instead winter in St. Marks Due to a lack of funding, the ultralight aircraft flight leading the endangered whooping cranes to the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge will not occur this year.MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle See CRANES/ Page A11 See THORPE/ Page A5 Brad Thorpecounty administrator to stay in office.See FEMA/ Page A5

The child has recovered.From staff and wire reports Page A3WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE PATFAHERTY Staff writerE-learning is changing higher education. While it is also called online learning or distance learning, accessing higher education through the Internet has caught on at the College of Central Florida. For the 2012-13 academic year, 62 percent of our students took at least one e-learning course, said CF Vice President Vernon Lawter, who oversees the Citrus campus. E-learning has grown over 200 percent in the past five academic years. He said 30 percent of the full-time equivalent students were generated through distance learning and the college put out 890 distance learning sections equivalent to a group of students in a classroom. He said they have a growing population of students who prefer courses online and last year CF experienced doubledigit growth in e-learning. In response, the college can add sections when enrollment shows additional demand. E-learning comes in two forms; one involves total online content. The other, not as popular at CF, is a hybrid, using a mix of in-person and online course work. The Florida College System, which includes CF and 27 other schools, reported 33.1 percent of students were enrolled in an online/distance course for 2010-11. Its goal is 36.2 percent by 2017-18. We really are in the middle of an e-learning revolution, not just at CF, but worldwide, Lawter said. Most traditional students have grown up in a digital world. He said it gives students more options for accessing higher education with certain advantages. Students can work at their own pace, without having to travel to attend classes. All the research capabilities are right there, he added. The world is digital its a huge advantage. But he gave a caveat: E-learning students need to be more self-motivated. That concept is not lost on Rachel Baril. The Citrus County resident works parttime at CFs Citrus campus library, but is a full-time online student at Saint Leo University. She is working on her bachelor of arts degree in psychology. She said the program works well for her because she cannot get to the main campus. Baril is taking condensed courses, which accelerates the pace. You had to hit the ground running, she said. She said online learning is not difficult from the standpoint of computer use. But she recommends anyone lacking recent skills might benefit from a basic computer course. She noted while you work at your own pace, its important to know when to take a break. She said a lot of students use the library for online course work or catching up on homework for other classes. Baril said she can use the online library catalog for research and even order from the bookstore online and have textbooks sent to her. She plans on graduating in summer 2014. Online courses for credit have the same tuition structure as traditional courses. And while it seems e-learning would be cheaper to offer, it presents it own cost structure. Lawter explained it requires a huge investment in technology and support for the faculty. Students also need a resource person to contact and CF maintains a help desk. There is greater demand for online student services and more demands on the testing center. He said the expansion of elearning has been a challenge the college embraced. It is currently developing an e-learning strategic plan. Both CF and state figures show there is virtually no difference in student success rates between online and classroom learning. And state college students can access online courses from schools. Were saying as an institution, e-learning is an option at Central Florida College, not a replacement, Lawter said. Its just another improvement, an option for access. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or firstname.lastname@example.org. PAT FAHERTY/ChronicleCitrus County resident Rachel Baril is a full-time online student at Saint Leo University.

Lawter said e-learning gives students more options, but he added a caveat: E-learning students need to be more self-motivated. Students, schools embracing e-learning as viable alternative to classroom Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Property Appraisers office on Monday mailed the 2013 Truth In Millage (TRIM) notices. The TRIM notice contains important information describing three tax scenarios on Page 1. Each column contains two subsets of figures, millage rates and the tax levy for each taxing authority. Column 1 reports last years actual taxes, column 2 reports possible taxes based on rollback millage rates and column 3 reports taxes based upon proposed budgets for 2013-14. During their final budget hearings, the taxing authorities may only choose to adopt a final millage rate as reported in column 3 or reduce it but they may not go higher. Therefore, column 3 is the highest amount that a taxpayer will see on their November tax bill (not including special assessments that are reported separately). The TRIM notices are also available at http://www.pa.citrus.fl.us. Millage rates and tax levies are the responsibility of each of the taxing authorities. Phone numbers are included in the notice for those who have questions concerning the tax rate or tax amount. Dates and time of budget public hearings are also listed. If available, certain non-ad valorem assessments are also shown on Page 1 of the TRIM notice. The proposed fire services MSBU was not finalized and reported to the property appraisers office in time to place on the TRIM notice. The public should remember that while the fire fee will not appear on your TRIM notice, it will appear on your November tax bill. Anyone with questions regarding the fire services MSBU fee should call 352-341-2151. The property appraisers office can help answer value questions. A trained staff appraisers telephone number is located midway on Page 2 of the TRIM notice. For 25 days from the issuance of the TRIM notice, values can be discussed and issues resolved informally until Sept. 6, 2013. Anyone who continues to have a difference of opinion on value or other matters may timely file a petition to the Value Adjustment Board. TRIM notices mailed From theCAPITAL Report: State hospitals reduce infections, readmissionsWith dozens of hospitals banding together to make improvements, the Florida Hospital Association released a report Tuesday it claims shows patient readmissions and infections have decreased. The association began the effort in 2008, with hospitals sharing information about steps they could take to improve quality of care and prevent costly and lifethreatening complications.DOT putting SunPass inside vending machinesSunPass electronic-tolling transponders can now be found in some state welcomecenter vending machines, next to Trolli Gummi Candy, Van-O Lunch Cookies and Toast Chee crackers. In an attempt to make the transponders more convenient for motorists, the state has started to place the tollpaying devices into vending machines at official Florida Welcome Centers and at a rest area along Interstate 4 in Polk County. The state Department of Transportation on Tuesday tweeted a photo of the transponders stacked inside a vending machine, selling for $5.35 each, next to rows of snack items.Dozens of charter schools ran deficits in 2011-12Nearly 12 percent of Florida charter schools ran deficits during the 2011-12 fiscal year, and about 25 schools had what are considered material weaknesses in their financial controls, according to a new report by the state auditor general. The report found 58 of 499 charter schools that filed reports had deficits at the end of the fiscal year. The 25 schools found to have material weaknesses showed problems such as incorrect accounting treatment of transactions and inadequate separation of financial duties among school officials.Soto proposes year-round daylight-saving timeSen. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, will try again to keep the sun shining later in the day yearround in Florida. Soto has reintroduced a proposal (SB 74) that would require Florida to keep the clocks permanently set for daylightsaving time. Soto filed a similar bill in the 2013 session (SB 734), but it was not heard in committees. From wire reports

Policyholders annual out-of-pocket costs will be capped. So far, premiums reported by a number of individual states have been coming in lower than initially projected by the Congressional Budget Office. But they are higher according to industry and consultants than what people now pay for individual plans, which tend to be bare-bones coverage. However, the law also will pump in billions of dollars in federal tax credits to help the uninsured pay premiums and ease cost increases for many who are currently buying the skimpy individual policies. The money will go directly to the insurance plan, and policyholders will pay the difference a discounted sticker price, in effect. The tax credits, available on a sliding scale based on family income, will be offered to people who dont have access to affordable coverage through their jobs and buy policies through the new state markets. Those making between 100-400 percent of the federal poverty level between $11,500 and $46,000 for an individual and $23,550 and $94,200 for a family of four are eligible for some level of help. Families on the low end of the scale will pay 2 percent of their income for a benchmark plan, while those on the upper end will pay 9.5 percent. Its expected that a clear majority of customers in the new markets will be eligible for tax credits. Thats because the pool will also include uninsured people, who tend to have lower incomes than those who can currently afford to buy their own coverage. The share will vary from state to state. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius recently estimated that in Texas, as many as 9 in 10 people buying coverage in the new market will get a break on costs. People with individual coverage they buy themselves represent a small sliver of those with private insurance, only about 5 percent to 6 percent. Thats expected to grow significantly under Obamas law, which will require most uninsured Americans to get coverage. Estimates of the number of people who currently have individual coverage range as high as 19 million, but Claxton said the Kaiser study used a smaller estimate of about 10 million. Its based on an ongoing government survey that some researchers regard as more accurate.

With ad. 000FOQN Waterfront district plan unveiled A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER City leaders sought and got direction about a slice of waterfront real estate that has lain dormant without development for more than four decades. A consultant the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) hired a few months ago unveiled the Waterfront District Master Plan on Monday. The blueprint for drumming up business development in the area, according to consultant Tom Kohler of Real Estate Research Consultants, has a few key points to it: Develop a cohesive stormwater management system an attractive retention pond for the area to collect and filter any runoff from businesses before it empties into the bay. Increase the maximum building height allowance from 50 feet to somewhere between 60 and 70 feet. It shouldnt have to be by much, Kohler said. Change the land-use rules to relax the requirements about onsite permeability from 35 to 15. Permeability has to do with the ratio of area on a piece of property that can be used for stormwater retention and what can be built on. Build condos and hotels with waterfront views. Build a traffic-calming median on U.S. 19 and a gateway at Citrus Avenue to announce the citys hub. Drop the requirement about every piece of property having on-site parking, and instead encourage pooled parking. Then Kohler added perhaps the most controversial suggestion build the much-talkedabout and long-anticipated waterfront boardwalk based on what the market dictates. If you build, they would not necessarily come. Let the market dictate how it is built, he said. Kohler would like to see individual investors or property owners pay for a share of building stretches of the proposed bayfront boardwalk. City Manager Andy Houston preceded Kohler by lamenting the lack of development in the waterfront district. Last April, Houston suggested to the city council which serves as the CRA board that a consultant be hired to offer opinions on how to best get that area primed for development and attract businesses. All council members praised Kohlers presentation. Councilman Ken Brown said he has no problems with building height limits being raised in the commercial corridor of U.S. 19. Joe Chrietzberg, a longtime city resident and advocate for what he calls dynamic change in the city, implored the leaders to act sooner than later to implement the suggestions. Dont get bogged down in minutiae, Chrietzberg said. Keep your eye on the big picture. Businessman Daryl Seaton, whose hotel anchors the north end of the proposed boardwalk, said while he liked most of the suggestions, he didnt like the provision of having property owners contributing to building the boardwalk. In effect, you are holding the boardwalk hostage, Seaton said. If property owners refuse to participate, there would be docks in a place intended to have a boardwalk and waterfront access to businesses, he said. Gerry Mulligan, who spoke on behalf of the Chamber of Commerces area council, echoed Seatons concerns about the boardwalk suggestion, but otherwise liked the other suggestions. Mulligan also is the publisher of the Chronicle. During the city council meeting, council members: Approved the citys annual contract with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Heard about the latest crime numbers from the sheriffs offices west-side commander Capt. Danny Linhart. Heard an annual report from Janet Mulligan, chairwoman of the citys Waterfronts Advisory Board; Approved a courtesy measure to reimburse Crystal River Fire Department volunteer firefighters who reside outside the city limits the amount of the county MSBU fire fee. Thirteen of the 16 firefighters live outside city lines; Approved a measure to name the boardwalk currently under construction at the Academy of Environmental Science property the Gary Maidhof Walk to Nature.

HEALTHContinued from Page A1 For theRECORD Commissioner Rebecca Bays and Commissioner Scott Adams gave different reasons for not supporting the motion to approve the training. Bays said FEMA is broke from Hurricane Katrina and the training would add expenses to floodinsurance policies. She said the agency used a great deal of funding on beach renourishment. I cant support this because of whats going on with FEMA, Bays said. Adams said the training is not mandatory and that restoring services after an emergency amounts to using common sense. He said the personnel sent away on training would not be doing their regular work. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said all senior staff had to be certified for the county to get reimbursements in the event of an emergency. Commissioner Dennis Damato said the training is like buying an insurance policy in case of an emergency, that staff would be trained to get roads cleared and services restored as soon as possible. Citrus County Council president Theodora Rusnak asked what the consequence would be for not participating in the training. Commission Chairman Joe Meek said, Its not an issue until its obviously an issue and that is that in the middle of an emergency you know what you are doing. Rusnak asked if the training had any effect on cost recovery. Adams said it was not mandatory, so it had no strings attached. Along with other speakers from the public, Rusnak pointed out that training should be available through Internet teleconferences so that county employees do not have to travel and be away from their jobs. Meek said the county has to be prepared, although that it was unfortunate how FEMA offered the training. Adams singled out an item on the consent agenda to appoint Assistant County Administrator Cathy Pearson as the detention facility contract monitor. I feel that its over Ms. Pearsons head, Adams said, and explained his opinion was based in the way a consultant was approved for a Tourist Development Council contract. He recommended Water Resources Director Ken Cheek instead. Meek responded that Pearson is more than qualified. She is in no way in over her head, Meek said. The board voted 4-1 to appoint Pearson. During public comment time, Harvey Gerber, president of the Beverly Hills Recreation Association, asked for two changes to the vacant property registry ordinance regarding dealing with broken windows and height of grass. For safety purposes, banks should be required to replace broken windows on homes they hold title to with clear Plexiglass rather than board them with plywood, Gerber said. Plywood on windows indicates a vacant house that can attract illegal activity and poses risks to law enforcement personnel unable to see in such a house to check on it. Allowing a grass height of 18 inches lets banks refrain from mowing as frequently as needed for the safety of keeping insects and vermin away from occupied homes, Gerber said. He recommended a maximum height of 10 inches. Inverness resident Rocky Hensley said the $54 fire protection services municipal services benefit unit (MSBU) did not show on the TRIM notice taxpayers received this week. TRIM stands for Truth in Millage. It is not typical that a BU would go on the TRIM notice the first year of its creation, answered County Attorney Richard Wesch. In future years, it would likely be on the TRIM notice. Wesch clarified to Robert Schweickert Jr. of Inverness: There were timing issues in trying to get it on the TRIM notice that would not have met our guidelines for the adoption of the BU. Following a public hearing, the board authorized a wastewater special assessment district for Harbor Isle in Crystal River to put about 20 waterfront properties on the central sewer system at a cost of $3,621.64 each. The board directed staff to continue an effort to cut 16 trees along the south side of West Venable Street to allow safer access to the north-south runway at Crystal River Airport. Many more trees need to be cut on the undeveloped property known as Crystal River Common, but would have a wetland impact that would need to be mitigated. Staff was asked to research means of mitigation and report back. FEMAContinued from Page A1 When Thorpe announced his retirement in May, he promised to stay on the job until his replacement was hired. Twenty-eight applicants, including two top county officials and an assistant superintendent of schools, applied for the county administrators job. Board members had planned to whittle the list down to five finalists to interview. Meek, however, said last week that Thorpe had rethought retirement and was offering to stay if board members wanted him to. Meek, Damato and Kenney jumped at the offer. Brad cares. You cannot put a dollar figure on someone who cares for this county, Damato said. He said the learning curve for any of the applicant is way too high to consider replacing Thorpe. Bays and Adams, however, said the county needs a new direction. Adams, in particular, blamed previous county commissions for the countys budget shortfall, which has necessitated a 30 percent tax increase. The mess were in isnt all Brads fault, Adams said. Were in a financial nightmare. Our problem lies right here. Thorpes employment status stays as it has been. He said commissioners never formally accepted his resignation, so his status hasnt changed. His annual contract would not require any severance pay for a resignation. However, if the board fires Thorpe without cause, he will receive six months severance pay.

Scott says state will sue Georgia about water Associated PressAPALACHICOLA Florida Gov. Rick Scott disclosed Tuesday that his state is going to sue the state of Georgia, saying its increased consumption of water is limiting flows to the Apalachicola River. Scott said in a statement that Florida must take such drastic action because it has been unable to negotiate a settlement in recent decades on how to allocate water between Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Floridas step is an escalation in years of litigation. This lawsuit will be targeted toward one thing fighting for the future of Apalachicola, Scott said. This is a bold, historic legal action for our state. But this is our only way forward after 20 years of failed negotiations with Georgia. We must fight for the people of this region. The economic future of Apalachicola Bay and Northwest Florida is at stake. In the past, Florida has sued the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the ApalachicolaChattahoocheeFlint river system. But a recent ruling went against Florida in its push to limit Georgias withdrawals. Much of the problem comes from metro Atlanta taking water from Lake Lanier, a major reservoir on the Chattahoochee River near that city. Floridas oyster industry has seen a near collapse in the last two years because of reduced water flow and because of drought. Earlier in the day, U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson held a U.S. Senate field hearing where they heard about the impact that drought and reduced water flows have had on Apalachicola Bay. The federal government a day earlier declared a fishery disaster for those who harvest oysters out of the Gulf of Mexico. A federal official testified that would make oystermen eligible for aid should Congress agree to such relief. Oystermen told the senators that people are leaving the area because the huge decline in oyster harvests. They complained that Georgia is taking more than its fair share of fresh water from the river system that feeds the bay.

Rick Scottsaid lawsuit is fighting for the future of Apalachicola. Associated PressBUFFALO, N.Y. Richard Zuehlke was unpacking a box of donated household miscellany at the Goodwill store where he works when he came across a gold-trimmed black case. Inside was a Purple Heart. Such an honor shouldnt just be floating around, he thought. Another pass through the box yielded a sepia-toned portrait of Pvt. James E. Roland, whose name was engraved on the medal. Zuehlkes bosses agreed the thrift store was no place for an honor posthumously awarded to Roland for military merit during World War II. After a Facebook post and some dogged determination on the part of a Patriot Guard Rider who saw it, the medal will soon be back where it belongs with Rolands family in tiny Westover, Pa., the former mining town where hes buried. How it wound up at a Goodwill 200 miles away, though, remains anyones guess. It seemed like it may have been mailed to somebody, said Buffalo-area Patriot Guard coordinator Linda Hastreiter, who began looking for Rolands relatives after learning of the Facebook post. For 69 years its been somewhere, Hastreiter said. She began searching immediately. Nearly a month later she tracked down Mary Roland Struble, a distant cousin and Westovers mayor. Hastreiter and other members of the military advocacy group will receive the medal from Goodwill in Buffalo on Tuesday. Riders on motorcycles will escort it from DuBois, Pa., to the cemetery on Saturday and present it to Struble at Rolands gravesite. This is just totally amazing. It makes me very proud, Struble said by phone Monday. Hastreiter first looked for relatives in New York before using the Internet to find that he was buried in Westover. She called the half-dozen Rolands she could find in the town of 688 people, eventually connecting with the mayor. Struble, who said her family has a long history of military service, had known about Pvt. Roland from the towns 1990 sesquicentennial celebration. Associated PressThis photo shows Pvt. James Roland and the Purple Heart medal he earned serving in World War II. The medal was found in June by Goodwill employee Richard Zuehlke while unpacking donations. The medal will be presented to Rolands cousin, Mary Roland Struble, on Saturday, Aug. 17, during a ceremony in Westover, Pa. Mystery Purple Heart to go to vets family

Interestrates WEDNESDAY, AUGUST14, 2013 A7 Associated PressNEW YORK Major stock indexes eked out small gains Tuesday after an upturn in technology companies outweighed weakness in other parts of the market, including a drop in airlines. The gain in technology stocks was driven by Apple. The technology company surged after billionaire investor Carl Icahn said on Twitter that he held a large position in Apple and that its stock was undervalued. August is shaping up to be a lackluster month for the stock market as major indexes fail to add significantly to the gains they made in July. The Standard & Poors 500 index has drifted lower, fluctuating between small losses and gains, since closing at an all-time high Aug. 2. A sharp rise in Treasury yields also rippled through the stock market on Tuesday. The yield on the 10-year note climbed to 2.72 percent, close to its highest in two years, on the latest signs that Europe is emerging from its recession. Industrial production in the 17 countries that use the euro rose in June and investor confidence increased in Germany, the regions biggest economy. The sharp rise in yields lifted financial companies because higher interest rates could help them generate better profit margins. That helped offset declines in homebuilders and other stocks that are sensitive to rising borrowing costs. The yield is also climbing on speculation that the Federal Reserve will cut its stimulus as the economy recovers. Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said Tuesday that it was too early to say when the bank would ease back on its stimulus, but hinted that it would likely happen before the end of the year. Homebuilder stocks slid on concern that mortgage rates will climb, raising the cost of buying a home and potentially blunting a recovery in the housing market. The stocks of phone companies and utilities that typically pay big dividends also fell. Those stocks have been slumping as Treasury yields have risen, because some investors had been buying them as an alternative to bonds as a source of investment income. Airline stocks slumped after the federal government challenged the proposed merger of US Airways and American Airlines, a deal between two of the largest carriers. The government said the deal would result in substantial harm to consumers in higher fares and fees. Stock market ekes out small gains; Apple climbs Homebuilder stocks slid on concern that mortgage rates will climb, raising the cost of buying a home and potentially blunting a recovery in the housing market. Investors are rethinking their bond strategies. In July, they pulled money out of taxable bond mutual funds for a second straight month. Thats the first time thats happened since late 2008. Investors withdrew an estimated $9 billion, following a net $44 billion in June. Bondholders are waiting for guidance on whether the Federal Reserve could start scaling back its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases as soon as September. The Feds stimulus has helped keep long-term interest rates low. Rising interest rates hurt bondholders because their previously issued bonds fall in value. Those bonds pay a lower yield so their prices decline. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note has risen a full percentage point since May, fueled in part by speculation over the Fed. The rise in interest rates has led to losses for many bond funds. The Pimco Total Return fund, the worlds largest mutual fund at $261 billion, is down 3.6 percent over the past three months. Municipal bond funds also continue to post net withdrawals. Investors are concerned about a budget proposal by President Obama that would cap the amount of muni-bond income that an individual can claim as exempt from federal taxes. The city of Detroit filing for bankruptcy raised even more concerns. Muni-bond funds have recorded monthly net withdrawals since March. Investors have steadily pulled money out of bond mutual funds since the yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose above 2 percent in late May.Taxable bond fundsMunicipal bond funds -40 -30 -20 -10 0 10 20 $30 Bond fund flows (left scale, in billions) 10-yr T reasury yield (right scale) 2012 2013 1 2 3% J F M A M J J A S O N D J F M A M J J.est t h ey pu ll e d mone y I n J u ly I nvestors are ret hi n ki n g t he s i nce M reasur y T y out o f taxa bl e b on d ei r b on d strate gi es. f ue l e d i n part b y specu l at i on o a y y note h as r i sen a f u ll percenta g e ver t h e po i nt bthiilid i nterest rates h urt b on dh o ld ers Ris l on g -term i nterest rates l o w T he Feds stimulus has hel p ed p urchases as soon as Septem $ 85 billion in monthl y bond R eserve could start scalin g ba c g u id ance on w h et h er t h e F e d e B on dh o ld ers are wa i t i n g f or b illion in June. w ithdrew an estimated $ 9 bil l fi rst t i me t h ats h appene d s i n m utual f unds f or a second st r 3.6 p er c worlds man y bo T h Fed. d si n g kee p ber c k its ra l l ion, following a net $ 44 ce l ate 2008.

On Wednesday official figures are expected to show that economic growth among the 17 countries that use the euro inched up 0.2 percent in the April-June quarter compared with the previous quarter. The increase is slight. But it would end six straight quarters of a debilitating recession the longest to afflict the single-currency bloc since its creation in 1999.Air pollution takes toll on Chinas tourismBEIJING China, one of the most visited countries in the world, has seen sharply fewer tourists this year with worsening air pollution partly to blame. Numbers of foreign visitors have declined following Januarys Airpocalypse, when already eye-searing levels of smog soared to new highs. Tourists have been put off by news about smog and other problems, said Frano Ilic of travel agency Studiosus in Munich, Germany. He said the number of people booking trips to China through his company has fallen 16 percent this year.Ackman gone, but Penneys problems remainPLANO, Texas The boardroom drama may be over, but J.C. Penney is still grappling with an uncertain future. William Ackman has resigned from J.C. Penneys board as part of a deal to resolve an unusually public battle between the activist investor and the struggling department store operator. Ackmans departure provides some shortterm relief from a distraction for Penney while it tries to fix its ailing business and as the crucial back-to-school selling season heats up.Icahn tells Apple CEO to buy back more stockNEW YORK Billionaire investor Carl Icahn said Apple should buy back more stock. Icahn said on Twitter Tuesday that he spoke with Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook and told him the computer companys stock buyback needs to be boosted immediately. Icahn characterized the talk as a nice conversation and said he and Cook plan to speak again soon. Icahn tweeted that he has a large position in Apple and believes the companys stock is extremely undervalued.Average credit card debt per borrower dips in Q2LOS ANGELES Americans remain stingy about carrying credit card balances and are making more of an effort to make timely payments, trends that have helped whittle the rate of late payments on credit cards down to the lowest level in nearly 20 years. The rate of credit card payments at least 90 days overdue fell in the second quarter to 0.57 percent. Thats the lowest level since 1994, credit reporting agency TransUnion said Tuesday. The April-June card delinquency rate declined from 0.63 percent in the same period last year, and also was down from 0.69 percent in the first three months of the year.Chipotle considering change to allow antibioticsNEW YORK Chipotle Mexican Grill is reviewing a change to start using beef that has been treated with antibiotics, but said no decision has yet been made on the matter. The Denver-based chain stressed in a press release Tuesday that its beef, chicken and pork continues to come from animals that are not given antibiotics or added hormones whenever possible. But it said its considering tweaking its responsibly raised meat standards to allow meat from animals that have been given antibiotics to treat illnesses.Coke to defend safety of aspartame in new adNEW YORK Coca-Cola plans to run its first ad defending the safety of artificial sweeteners on Wednesday, a move that comes as the company looks to stem declining sales of diet soda. The print ad is set to run in USA Today in the Atlanta area, followed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Thursday and the Chicago Tribune next week. It says that diet drinks can help people manage their weight and stresses the scientific evidence showing the safety of aspartame, which is more commonly known under the NutraSweet brand name. The ad represents the next phase of a campaign Coca-Cola Co. launched in January to push back at critics who blame its sugary drinks for fueling obesity rates. The first wave of ads outlined the companys commitment to fighting obesity and pointed to the many diet options it offers. Now Coca-Cola is trying to reassure people that those lower-calorie drinks arent harmful.From wire reports
OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 A lesson in common senseThe recent commentary by Dr. Anthony Schembri was an exercise in common sense. Wouldnt if be refreshing to all levels of government if leaders took the time to examine their own broken machine and attempt to put a new solutionism in place. I believe the American people are fed up with the manner in which the politicians continue to do business as usual. We are a country, state and county with a very high level of inept-ocracy. This is a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers. This process continues to allow politicians to continue to be reelected and placed in positions that foster their continuance in office. Corruption is rampant, but the age-old comment we hear is: What difference can I make? People, we have to remake our beds or else we will all be sleeping on the floor at the feet of those that have created the unacceptable. Dr. Schembri has laid out a recipe in which we can change our direction and make it work right.George Pratt HernandoGeorge the Shelter Cat says thanksHello. George the Shelter Cat here. I apologize for taking so long to get this letter done, but the lack of opposable thumbs hinders my typing. Also many recent surrenders of cats, kittens, dogs and puppies have kept me busy greeting everyone, and I just want to remind everyone to please spay and neuter your pets. I want to thank everyone who took part in helping to celebrate my 13th birthday in June at the Citrus County Animal Services Shelter. Thanks to the visitors to the shelter that day we collected in excess of 20 pounds of food and (most importantly to me) cat treats! We also collected $117 in cash, which has been put to good use in improvements to the cat adoption area. Those donations, along with donations from some of our volunteers and supporters, went towards the purchase of three additional kennels for the cat adoption area. Thank you to Nick Nicholson for putting the new kennels together for us. These extra kennels allow more of our cats to have the opportunity to be available in the adoption areas; more of them now have the opportunity to interact with the public looking to adopt. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Also new to the adoption area are two very comfy shelves in the Meet Your Match Room that allow more vertical space for the cats to climb and relax on. Thank you to our volunteers, Leslie Ramalho and Karyl Kelley; Leslies husband, Joe; and Glen Tubman d/b/a Canvas Experts for their planning, execution and contributions to these excellent shelves! Please visit the shelter soon and check out some of the great cats, kittens, dogs and puppies waiting for their chance for adoption. Please adopt, dont shop and again, remember to spay or neuter your pets.George the Shelter Cat DOUGLASCOHNANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONPresident Obama canceled a planned summit in Moscow with Russian President Putin, citing Putins rejection of administration entreaties to return NSA leaker Edward Snowden to the U.S. to face trial. Obamas frustration with Putins intransigence on a number of issues, from nuclear arms reduction to the abrupt halting of adoptions by Americans of Russian children, set the stage for the snub. Obama no doubt felt he had taken enough guff from the Russian president; now was the time to return the volley. Granting Snowden temporary asylum was the proximate cause, but a small part of the much larger story of the deteriorating U.S.-Russian relationship. It gave Obama an excuse to skip the side trip to Moscow after he attends next months G-20 summit in St. Petersburg that Putin is hosting. Given the long and rocky history between the two superpowers, its not surprising Obama made the decision he did, but did he really think the Russians would return Snowden? In foreign policy as in all human interactions youve got to put yourself in the other guys shoes. Snowden initially fled to Hong Kong, where the Chinese essentially punted, declining to send him back to the U.S. and letting him travel on to Moscow. Putin was confronted with a guy confined to the transit lounge of the Moscow airport who was meeting with human rights activists and allegedly still in possession of a treasure trove of U.S. intelligence secrets. What if the situation were reversed, and a Russian citizen was holed up at JFK airport in New York, his passport revoked by Russian authorities, and he had inside information about the Kremlin; would the administration send him back to Russia to face an uncertain fate? The answer is no, the administration would put out the welcome mat for such an individual. Theyd call him or her a defector, and grant asylum. The same would be true if an individual allegedly in possession of secrets about China managed to reach the U.S. he or she would get asylum in a New York minute. The Russians are doing exactly what any U.S. administration would do: allow this high-profile defector or dissident to find safe harbor, and then milk it for every bit of drama and public relations advantage they can find. Sure, its annoying to Obama, but it shouldnt be a surprise. And it shouldnt be blamed for the breakdown in the U.S-Russian relationship. That was fraying well before Snowden landed in Moscow. Theres a great deal of theater on both sides of the divide. Putin has a trophy in Snowden that he can show off to the Russian people, and Obama gets a rare chance to look tough while putting nothing at risk. Its like that iconic scene from Casablanca, where the chief of police is shocked, shocked to find gambling in Ricks Caf. If Putin did agree to extradite Snowden, what kind of signal would that send? How would that be interpreted? Obama would be delighted, of course, and praise Putin for his cooperation. But what would Putin get out of the deal? He would forfeit any future opportunities to receive defectors and/or dissidents from the U.S. Anybody contemplating such a move would see Putin as an unreliable confidante, and Russia as hostile territory not the message Putin wants to send in a world of shifting alliances. The thing to watch now is what Russia does with Snowden now that hes there for at least a year. The Russian equivalent of Facebook reportedly offered him a job. Lets see how much freedom Snowden gets to enjoy, whether the world at large hears from him again, and then we can better judge Putins actions, and whether they depart from the norm or are the norm.

This spring, hundreds of pelicans also began dying, followed this summer by scores of bottlenose dolphins. The die off is an alarming indicator that the estuarys ecosystem, which not only supports wildlife but commercial fisheries, tourism and other businesses as well, is finally buckling under the strain of decades of pollution generated by coastal development. While Citrus County has yet to experience the Indian River estuarys grim statistics, mounting evidence indicates this could very well be the fate awaiting its coastal waters and estuaries in the not-too-distant future. The most recent evidence of the degradation of our coastal waters and estuaries is a 10year data collection effort in Kings Bay. Conducted by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, it confirms the bays disturbing trend of declining water quality. As revealed by the data collected, the bays waters are plagued by growing levels of chlorophyll, nitrate and phosphorus, indicating stormwater run-off, chemical fertilizers and leaking septic systems are polluting the bay. No one, however, should be surprised. In the 1970s, the spring-fed waters of Kings Bay were crystal-clear with a white, sandy bottom and strips of tape grass beds. Since then, local residents and recreational users have witnessed the steady decline of the bays water quality. Spurred by the bays decline, concerned local citizens, environmental groups and civic organizations have been beating the drum for the past two decades to galvanize public and governmental support to halt the decline so the bay could be restored to its earlier luster. While their efforts have spurred some positive steps, such as the recent public acquisition of Three Sisters Springs and Crystal Rivers water reclamation, sewer extension and stormwater management projects, progress has been incremental and piecemeal. Lacking concerted action, the bay is inexorably reaching a tipping point that could result in dire environmental and economic consequences for our county. With time our enemy, the race to save the bay demands action not more discussions and studies that merely restate the problem. County residents and governmental officials, therefore, must muster up the political will to develop and support a comprehensive restoration plan for Kings Bay thats solutions oriented before its irrevocably lost. The time for concerted action is now! THE ISSUE:Kings Bay disturbing trend. OUR OPINION:Race against time demands concerted action.

Now that theyve put paid firefighters in Pine Ridge, the volunteers are no longer needed. At one time there were almost 20 volunteers in that station. Now theyre down to almost one or two and at this time, theyre both senior men. Theres no need for volunteer firefighters anymore. Weve just been weeded out by the paid firefighters and everybody can thank the administration for doing that.More stations needed?Heres one for your tax fee for the fire business: Out in Heatherwood, there was a building that burned a couple years ago. It took 35 minutes for the fire trucks to get there and obviously there was nothing for them to do.Give back fire dept.I cant believe that anyone begrudges the fire department monetary support. What we do begrudge is that the sheriffs (office) is in charge of this money and how it is spent. Give the fire department back to the fire chief. Is (Sheriff Jeff) Dawsy smarter than the fire chief when it comes to the fire department operation? Of course not. We already pay fire taxIm addressing the comments made in Mondays paper (Aug. 5) from the people that wrote in who are pro the MSBU fire (fee). Obviously, you must work for the fire department or youre one of the people that got the 3 percent raise, because what you said was pretty dumb. We already pay to the fire (services) in our taxes. And to even think that somebody shouldnt go and put out a fire at someones house because they oppose being ripped off by paying all these bills, these taxes and MSBUs, is a pretty sad thing to state. Its ridiculous.Give tax to fire chiefIm calling in regard to taking back the fire department. Dont think people would mind so much paying a fire tax if it went directly to the fire department instead of going to the sheriff, who already has too much control. Please give the fire department back to the fire chief. I think wed be a lot happier. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects.

Dont worry, be happyDont worry, be happy. All will be well in Washington, D. C. The president doesnt have a budget, thanks to his staff and Harry Reid. Neither one has made a legitimate try to generate a budget or work towards one that could be accepted and put into practice for five years now. What does this mean to you and me? It means that there are no guidelines or limits on spending and borrowing in Washington, D. C. until the debt limit is reached again. Dont worry, be happy we will just implement programs that make us look good, and give away money that we dont have, because we can just borrow more next Monday. The people and foreign countries will think that we are just wonderful because we are giving them something for nothing. Is this ever going to end? It will end when we, the people, say no more borrowing. When you reach the debt limit, thats it, youre done borrowing. Or, it could end when the federal government cant borrow enough money to pay the bills and debt they owe. Not a happy thought and something a president doesnt want to think about or acknowledge. But how about us? This debt obligation is something we are going to have to pay off. Its going to come out of our pockets and the politicians are just going to continue to spend until we elect legislators who have the courage and the ability to say no more borrowing until we get our financial house in order. Cities in California and Michigan have gone bankrupt, and I would suspect there will be more. When will states start going bankrupt? The easy money and gifts will come to a screeching halt when bankruptcy occurs. This is something that we should try to avoid with all our might. The way things are going now it is not a question of, will we go bankrupt? The question is when will we go bankrupt? If we keep electing politicians that cant change the way that the business of government is done we are doomed to fail, sorry to say. We have a dilemma on our hands. The Republicans will never get another man elected president if they dont stop with their current platform, and the Democrats know this and just keep promising to give away the store and keep getting elected. What we need is a crusader on a beautiful, shiny horse to come along and get elected. Then we will have to elect people who he can work with to stop this runaway financial wreck from happening. It means the Washington mentality will have to change and a more realistic one be installed. This new mentality will also have to be implemented in the states, counties and cities if we are to be successful. If we dont change for the better, we are doomed to fail. If we fail, the whole world will fail, because we have allowed and encouraged them to depend on us for guidance and money. Dont worry, be happy. Lets make another deal and go down the slippery slope to defeat.Alfred E. Mason Crystal RiverMuch work still to be doneAs a white woman, I guess I take for granted that no one is going to follow me around in a store because they think I might steal something. No woman clutches her purse close to her body when I approach. No one locks their car when I walk through a parking lot. I dont feel frightened when I see a police officer in the area. While the Zimmerman jury has made their decision, which, like it or not, we must accept, I was very proud of President Barack Obama when he addressed the racial troubles that still exists and discussed some of the problems faced by people of color every day. The presidents recent informal press conference after the Zimmerman verdict made me stop and think. Have I ever been guilty of the things he said black males face every day? Probably so. The president has made me more aware of my behavior and I hope I can change it. Why is it that we can smile at a child of color, but when that same child becomes a teenager, we tend to shy away from them? Would we do the same if they were white? Do tattoos and sagging jeans automatically make us think a person is some sort of criminal? Why in the 21st century do African American parents still have to have the talk with their children regarding how to behave when they have dealings with police? So, thank you, Obama, for reminding us all that the work needs to be continued.Evlyn Skurow Crystal RiverTime to get off the busWhat a financial mess our county, our state, our country just makes you want to give up. But I cannot do this. It in a way kinda reminds me of my service in the Pacific during World War II. We were so young and thought we knew everything we were wrong. We knew little and found out the only way to survive was to depend on each other. Perhaps I am too old school but I like to think we, as Americans, can survive anything if we want to really want to. A little story, not new, but still interesting: Seems there (were) two young boys up North who became very close friends went to elementary school and high school, played on the school athletic teams. Well, during their senior (year) in high school, one of their fathers was sent on his job in the South which meant taking the family to a new location. After graduation, the other kid decided he missed his buddy and saved his money for a trip down South to see him. So the day came and he boarded the bus and fell asleep. Next thing he heard was someone yelling, Get off the bus, get off the bus and put your feet in the yellow footprints on the deck. See, he got on the wrong bus and it took him to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, S.C. He lived in a hell for the next 11 weeks. Then they sent him to Camp Pendleton a Marine base in California. From there he was assigned to a rifle company and shipped to the Central Pacific to fight the thenenemy, the Japanese. He made no less than three initial landings on those islands held by the thenenemy, the Japanese. He was awarded our nations second-highest award, the Navy Cross. After discharge he was elected by his state to serve in Congress. He served for more than 40 years and after retirement taught at a major university. Is it not about time all Americans Got off the bus? Semper Fi.Neville Anderson, Sgt. USMC retired InvernessProgram successfulThe Child Passenger Safety Program has reached the one-year anniversary of service at the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast, located in the Meadowcrest complex in Crystal River. The program offers free car seat safety inspections for all residents, providing education on the correct use and secure installation of all types of child safety seats. This is vitally important, as four out of five car seats are not used correctly and no car seat can protect a child if it is not used properly. Another key service is providing safe, new car seats for families in our community who are experiencing financial hardship. Two hundred and twenty seven children received a car seat this past year. These are offered at low cost to ensure safe transportation for all children regardless of family income. All services are by appointment at the Early Learning Coalition office. We would like to thank the following businesses, agencies and organizations who have contributed financial and in-kind support to the Child Passenger Safety Program this past year. First, the Board of Directors of the ELC for their support, The Florida Department of Transportation, Kids Central Inc., The Citrus County Tax Collectors Office, State Farm Insurance, Capital City Bank, The First Baptist Church of Crystal River, the Gulf to Lake Pilot Club of Citrus County, The Women of Sugarmill Woods, Crystal Motors, Walmart, Kmart, and fundraisers at Ruby Tuesdays, Chilis and Applebees. We are grateful to the people from these organizations who recognize the value of this program, which is to keep all Citrus County children transported as safely as possible.Sonya Bosanko executive director Sue Littnan child passenger safety coordinator Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast Crystal RiverNumbers do not add upWe give the government employees a 3-percent wage increase as a reward for increasing our taxes by 30 percent.

Just reading the stupidity that some people call in to the Sound Off. One of them: Lay off the police, lay off the fire department. As a retired firefighter, I have called in with facts and figures from the National Fire Protection Association that shows the fire department here is very under strength and under manned and we need to get that strength up to protect ourselves, to protect the firefighters and protect the property.Confused by quoteSeveral days ago in the Chronicle, there was a big article about water by A.B. Sidibe and he was quoting and interviewing Helen Spivey about water issues. Ms. Spivey mentioned the use of robo-toilets. I dont think she really meant robo-toilets. That would be inappropriate, I think, in context of what she was saying, she may have meant composting toilets. Composting toilets make total sense because they require little or no water.Charge boat ramp feesIm mad I cant get my boat out on the ramp for scalloping. Its all booked up and tied in from outof-state, out-of-town scallopers, all using our county ramps and facilities for free. We need to start charging people. We could have a nice fire department with that.Grass needs cuttingThe grass needs cut on South Barber Street. The person or bank or mortgage company that owns this property needs to come and take a look, as I drove by. This is an eyesore where I came from and the property owner should be cited. Does Beverly Hills not have any authority? The grass is full of mosquitoes and looks very bad for the neighborhood. Please drive by South Barber Street.Searching for stolen birdsI am asking anyone that has spotted three flamingos in anyones yard that were recently placed there, to call the sheriffs office. They were recently stolen from our front yard. They were made of porcelain and quite heavy. My wife, who is 76 years old, spent much time restoring them. She painted them bright pink with a dark green base. They may have been sold from a flea market or off the street. It would be greatly appreciated if they were to be found and returned. The theft has been reported to the sheriffs office.Getting rid of syntheticsI was wondering why we cant get rid of the synthetic drugs in Citrus County even though they have in Sumter County pretty well, even though they dont have anything near the (Jeff) Dawsy empire we have here to get rid of it. Just seems like resources are spent for a lot less important things, because these kids are dying and going broke over this crap and we cant do nothing about that.Use sign, not printI would like to suggest to the people who continually submit letters full of hatred and religious intolerance that their vitriol would be more appropriately vented by standing on the side of the road with a sign instead of polluting the discussion in the local newspaper.School standards questionedTaxes, taxes, taxes, thats all you hear about right now. But the one thing commissioners are not looking at is the school system. We have young children graduating; they dont even know how this country was formed. No history, not teaching them anything. Maybe we should take some money out of there.Why pay for that?Can someone please describe the duties of a school board member? I just read Sandy Balfour has resigned her job to serve on the school board. In New Jersey, board members serve for free. I thought the school superintendent was paid to be the one in charge of schools.We retired for this?Its ironic that we left the D.C. area to retire in Citrus County where we thought we would find a slowpaced and economical community. Now we find were in the middle of a power struggle with the local hospital, a biased newspaper, ridiculous money-wasting proposals, i.e., Port Citrus, and the brilliant idea to correct all the budget problems by overtaxing the population. It turns out Citrus County is not that different from the big city after all, except that now we are retired and we have to live with it all over again. How ironic. Sound OFF
CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEOPINION A10WEDNESDAY, AUGUST14, 2013 Letters to THE EDITOR Thanks for supporting CUBI would like to thank each and every one of you who continually support our mission to assist Citrus County families and individuals facing temporary hardship. With your help, Citrus United Basket (CUB) is able to provide food, financial assistance, nominally priced clothing, free childrens clothing, interview clothes, clothes to those re-entering the work force, encouragement, resources and most of all, hope to those who come to us for help. Thank you for all you do! Our summer started off with a splash. Thank you to Apopka Marine, our board of directors and everyone who participated in this years boat raffle. Thank you to everyone who sold tickets and all who donated prizes. Congratulations to our winner. It is with a grateful heart that I would like to share with you a little bit of what your help has allowed us to provide during the last few months: School is out, children are at home and families are struggling to stretch the household food dollar through the month. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our community support and CUBs amazing team of dedicated volunteers, our food distribution program has been able to offer fresh fruits: cherries, strawberries, blueberries, apricots, peaches, raspberries, grapes and watermelon. Our food pantry hope is to have available better quality, greater quantity, nutritionally based menu selections. In the past few months families have received hot dogs, deli meats, lunch meats, beef, pork, chicken and eggs, in addition to our regular staple food bag items. We have been fortunate to be able to provide our families with dog and cat food as well as pet supplies and flea and tick preventative, feminine products, incontinence products, toiletries, toilet paper and other household items. Our food pantry is open from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and services hundreds of families, with thousands of pounds each and every month. Thanks to the generosity of all of you who have donated clothing and household items, CUBs thrift store has been able to maintain our nominal pricing with most thrift store items remaining at $1, or our popular fill-a-bag for $3. Our summer shoe sale is still ongoing: Two pair for $3 is a great success. All proceeds from our thrift store go directly to support our food pantry food distribution program. Also, CUB has a generous in-kind program where we offer all childrens clothing and shoes at no cost. Clothing is also available at no charge to clients entering the workforce or preparing for job interviews. We have a wide variety of inkind medical equipment: canes, crutches, walkers and wheel chairs available at no charge. The weather is warm, the humidity is high, the AC is on and energy use is up, so the added cost of higher utility bills stresses the budget. Financial assistance is at the summer peak; we are helping many families curb the cost of high energy bills, utility assistance and rental assistance. Because of your support, CUB is able to help. We remain steadfast in our efforts to keep people in their homes. All of what we do at Citrus United Basket is possible with your help and love.

God Bless you all!Jenna Campbell executive directorAmericas leaders separate AmericansIm sick and tired of hearing elected officials and reading in the papers or listening on the so-called news networks about the black vote, the Hispanic vote, the gay vote, the Christian vote, the atheist vote, the white vote and any other group that I may have forgotten. Our leaders stink. They have promoted the segmenting of the American population to meet their personal agendas. Too many Americans are like sheep being led to the slaughter and buy into the media propaganda that loves to divide us for the sake of selling newspapers or gaining radio/TV listeners/ viewers. Hell, why dont we just divide America up into different countries and each have their own president, king, dictator or whatever they choose? We can divide up Americas land mass by population (whites get 70 percent of the land, blackAmericans 12 percent, Hispanics 14 percent, Asians 4 percent, all others can join whichever group they feel comfortable with). America was called a melting pot where the oppressed could come to fulfill their dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Where did the people go who used to come to America to become an American, to find work, to pursue happiness and live the American dream, to escape oppressing governments, to love and honor the lady with the torch and the American flag that are our welcoming symbols? Unfortunately this type of immigrant seems to be difficult to find in todays world. I guess you can tell Im fed up with the direction our leaders are taking us. What is really sad in our republic is that ultimately it is you and I who must take a great deal of the blame, as it is you and I who are in charge of the leaders we elect. In a republic (which is what we have in America) the leaders work for us, not the other way around. Can we change Americas direction? Absolutely! First we need to remove all written or verbal use of the following terms: African-American, Hispanic, Asian, white, etc. If you are an American by birth or by naturalization you should be referred to and proudly called American. Im sick and tired of these surveys that ask you to identify your ethnic background. I always check the box that says other because they dont have American listed as a choice. I was born and raised here. Why would I want to be identified as something else? Whats the purpose? Using terms to segregate Americans into subcultures is counter productive. All I ask each and every one of you is vote for what your heart knows is right for this country. Not for some self-serving agenda. Tough, but a choice we all must make. America is a melting pot of diversified people and most of us simply want a life of opportunity to succeed in our endeavors, live in a safe environment, worship in whatever beliefs you hold dear. We will lose the American dream if we continue to allow leaders to segregate us in opposing camps. We are Americans first and need to eliminate identifications that separate us.Bob Locher Crystal River Fire the managerThis is in reply to the Plenty of food stamp fraud. That store manager should be fired. You cant buy hot meals with food stamps. You cant defraud things. Thats the problem with this country.Give us the newsLast Wednesday night about 7:30, I was coming home from Hernando and I come upon a whole bunch of vehicles, several fire trucks, emergency squads, about half a dozen police cars with lights flashing, a whole bunch of people standing alongside the road. Not one thing in the paper in the morning or on the radio, and here it is Friday. Its nice if we had a reporter that worked at night to let people know whats going on in our community.Editors noteThe Chronicle always appreciates when residents call the newsroom to let us know of news events such as serious traffic accidents. Our number is 352-563-5660.Workers comp slowIm calling about workers comp issues. I want to know why in Citrus County, if you work for the sheriffs office or any county entity, it takes so long to get reimbursed for your workers comp. You know, gasoline going back and forth to go to the doctor. There are people who have been legitimately hurt and are out on legitimate workers comp plans and its taking months and months to get reimbursed. Were talking, you know, four to six months to get reimbursed for simple fuel and mileage and things like that. I think its horrendous that these people who are taking money out of their pocket, that its taking forever for them to get their money back.Renewal infoWill you put it in the paper again what you need to renew your license? Editors note: The best place to find out is through the Citrus County Tax Collectors Office. Call 352341-6513, or visit www.tc.citrus.fl.us. Law soundI have a problem with these people that are complaining about the stand your ground law. I think it is a good law and if they dont like it, they can move to some other state.Return fundsThe board of trustees for Citrus Memorial hospital voted to keep the millage rate at .245. I think this was premature, since they made this decision based on estimates, plus they have to decide which proposal to accept and if both boards manage to agree on one of these proposals and it gets consummated before year end, there will be that much more money there sitting in the pot unused. When this is all done, all riches, including any monies remaining from a sale or a lease of the hospital, should be, in good faith, returned to the rightful owner, the taxpayers. This money should not go to the BOCC to manage, nor to any other entity for any purpose.Crushing programInteresting. The Chronicle has a magnificent article promoting Ag in Citrus County by strong leaders, yet our county commission is about to abolish, disband, destroy the Master Gardeners Program and the County Extension Service. Actually, thats probably Swiftmud. Still, they crushed our Master Gardener Program, yet our surrounding counties are doing terrific. What a conundrum.Not armedWe have a Neighborhood Watch in Sugarmill Woods and they drive Citrus County patrol cars. I think it behooves Sheriff (Jeff) Dawsy to make a statement that Neighborhood Watch individuals in his vehicles are not vigilantes and are not armed. He should state that a Neighborhood Watch individual is not a trained deputy and is not permitted to carry a weapon while in that vehicle. What happened in Sanford could not happen here.

Our base budget is being cut by 8 percent this year and next year it is going to be cut by another 5 percent, he said. Last year, the endangered cranes journey from the upper Midwest to this area was repeatedly delayed by inclement weather and they ended up being crated and transported to St. Marks. Lusk said hosting the whooping cranes, which the refuge has been doing since 2007, can be expensive. Under Operation Migration, fledgling cranes which are raised in captivity learn how to migrate from the northern Midwest to the Sunshine State. They begin their journey in the fall. The Operation Migration organization provides support both from donations and volunteers in an effort to establish a stable population of the endangered bird. Most of the whooping cranes spend the warm weather months in central Wisconsin, where they use areas on or near Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, as well as other public and private lands. Whooping cranes were on the verge of extinction in the 1940s. Today, there are only about 570 birds in existence, approximately 400 of them in the wild. The only other migrating population of whooping cranes nests at Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta, Canada, and winters at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on the Texas Gulf Coast. A non-migrating flock of approximately 20 birds lives year-round in the Kissimmee region. Whooping cranes, named for their loud and penetrating calls, live and breed in wetland areas, where they feed on crabs, clams, frogs and aquatic plants. They are distinctive animals, standing 5 feet tall, with white bodies, black wing tips and red crowns on their heads. Operation Migration is part of a U.S.-Canadian partnership of government and private organizations trying to re-establish migrating flocks of whooping cranes. One flyway or route has already been reestablished, but that flock of more than 100 birds is vulnerable to extinction should a disaster strike.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Disfigured Spanish fresco a hit for artist, town Associated PressMADRID A year ago, Cecilia Gimenezs botched attempt to restore a fresco of Christ inspired ridicule and references to monkeys. Now, the 81-year-old Spanish artist is having the last laugh. The disfigured fresco has drawn more than 40,000 visitors and raised more than $66,285 for a local charity in the town of Borja since gaining worldwide attention. It has spurred the town to put the likeness on merchandise it hopes will sell for years to come. And Gimenez has even had her own art exhibit, with two dozen of her other works showing through Aug. 24 in the town of 5,000. Gimenez and a local council are to sign a deal next week to share profits from merchandise featuring the image, with the artist getting 49 percent and the council the rest, said councilor Juan Maria Ojeda, who listed the tourism and income figures.

Both defendants face up to 25 years in prison.Court wants ruling on nuke waste siteWASHINGTON In a rebuke to the Obama administration,a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been violating federal law by delaying a decision on a proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada. By a 2-1 vote, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered the commission to complete the licensing process and approve or reject the Energy Departments application for a never-completed waste storage site at Nevadas Yucca Mountain. In a sharply worded opinion, the court said the nuclear agency was simply flouting the law when it allowed the Obama administration to continue plans to close the proposed waste site. Theaction goes against a federal law designating Yucca Mountain as the nations nuclear waste repository.Mars researchers emerge from domeHONOLULU Six researchers have spent the past four months living in a small dome on a barren Hawaiian lava field at 8,000 feet, trying to figure out what foods astronauts might eat on Mars and during deep-space missions. They emerged on Tuesday with their recipes. The six researchers were selected by the University of Hawaii and Cornell University for the NASA-funded study to prepare meals from a list of dehydrated, preserved foods that are not perishable. They examined pre-prepared meals similar to what astronauts currently eat, and concocted meals in an attempt to combat malnourishment and food boredom. A favorite among the crew: Nutella, the chocolatehazelnut spread. One of the first things they did when they came out of the habitat was have a buffet breakfast.

Police officials said the mosque bombing took place on Tuesday as worshippers were leaving the mosque in the town of Madain, about 14 miles south of Baghdad. They said five people were killed and 13 were wounded in that attack. Earlier in the day, two policemen were killed as they were trying to defuse a car bomb left on the road near the northern city of Kirkuk.

Most of the prisoners were convicted of killings, including Israeli civilians and suspected Palestinian collaborators, while others were involved in attempted murder or kidnapping. The release was part of an agreement brokered by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to get Israel and the Palestinians back to the table for peace talks. In all, 104 convicts are to be released in four batches, although their freedom is contingent on progress in the peace talks.

Associated PressCONCORD, N.H. One man infected with hepatitis C hasnt been able to return to work. Another wont kiss his wife on the lips even though the blood-borne virus cant be spread that way. A woman struggles with stress and fatigue. Another worries about exposing her grandchild. All are among the dozens of patients former hospital technician David Kwiatkowski is accused of infecting with the disease, and they were prepared to testify against him at trial. Instead, Kwiatkowski is scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday to 14 federal drug charges in New Hampshire in exchange for 30 to 40 years in prison. He will be sentenced later, probably in November, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said Tuesday. Kwiatkowski has been jailed since his arrest in July 2012. His lawyers did not respond to email messages or calls seeking comment Monday or Tuesday. Originally from Michigan, Kwiatkowski worked in 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired in New Hampshire in 2011. A traveling hospital technician, he was assigned by staffing agencies to fill temporary openings around the country. Along the way, he contracted hepatitis C. According to the plea agreement filed Monday, Kwiatkowski told investigators he had been stealing drugs for more than a decade and his actions were killing a lot of people. He wasnt charged directly in anyones death, but the plea agreement says his actions played a contributing role in one persons death. Hepatitis C can cause liver disease and chronic health issues. Instead, Kwiatkowski is accused of stealing painkiller syringes from Exeter Hospitals cardiac catheterization lab and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his blood. Forty-six people in four states in hospitals where Kwiatkowski worked have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C he carries: 32 patients in New Hampshire; seven in Maryland, six in Kansas and one in Pennsylvania. One of the Kansas patients died. With his plea, Kwiatkowski will avoid criminal charges pertaining to patients outside New Hampshire. At least two dozen civil lawsuits related to his case are pending, most of them against Exeter Hospital. In Hep C infections, drug theft charges clinch deal David Kwiatkowski Associated PressPHILADELPHIA A new robot at the University of Pennsylvania has a leg up on its predecessors now that researchers have outfitted it with jumping and climbing abilities something that could make it particularly useful for such tricky propositions as military search missions or supply transport. The RHex robot project began about 15 years ago when researchers at several universities began asking what it would take for robots to traverse rugged terrain as well as animals do. You look at any machine thats been built today, and almost any animal that you can imagine will outperform that machine, said Penn engineering professor Daniel Koditschek, whos been involved in the development of RHex (pronounced Rex) since the beginning. Legged robots, unlike wheeled ones, have the animal-like ability to overcome obstacles like stairs and ledges. But until the latest iteration of RHex, developed by Koditschek and fifth-year doctoral student Aaron Johnson, legged robots couldnt negotiate gaps in terrain any better than robots with wheels. Quite frankly, what the leg robots were doing was going over terrain that a good wheeled robot could probably handle, said University of Michigan engineering professor Jessy Grizzle. What RHex is doing now is something that you couldnt imagine doing with wheels. Johnson has developed mechanisms that allow the robot to jump over gaps and holes in terrain it previously would have fallen into. And where tall ledges would typically block such a robots path, RHex can maneuver onto platforms more than four times its own height. Koditschek and Johnson designed the latest version of RHex X-RHex Lite using lightweight carbon fiber. This allows it to perform its leaping and climbing functions without consuming too much power, so the robot can keep moving after clearing an obstacle. The RHex project was originally funded by the Department of Defense division in charge of developing military technology, and the latest version is funded by the U.S. Army. But according to Roger Brockett, a professor of engineering at Harvard University, there is a wide range of research happening in robotics, and its difficult to know which approach will ultimately be the most useful. This is just one big quest from people all over the place who are trying to see if their particular take on this is going to be effective, he said. UPenns new bot a lighter alighter Associated PressThe X-RHex Lite robots ability to jump is demonstrated Tuesday at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Associated PressDALLAS American Airlines and US Airways expected to spend this week cruising toward completion of their huge merger, a deal that was worth $14 billion on paper and would create the worlds biggest airline. Instead, they were stunned Tuesday when the federal government and six states sued to block the deal, saying it would hurt competition and cost consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year in higher fares and extra fees. Antitrust regulators had done little to interfere with three other big airline mergers in the past five years, so they were not expected to stand in the way of American and US Airways. But this latest deal would leave four airlines controlling more than 80 percent of the U.S. air-travel market. The Justice Department turned the words of US Airways leaders against them. The 56page lawsuit filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., was peppered with quotes from internal emails, investor presentations and public comments in which the airlines top executives noted previous mergers had helped lead to higher fares and higher fees to check a bag or change a ticket. Mergers hurt fliers in several ways, the government says. With fewer choices, consumers cant protest added fees or higher prices. That means one airline often quickly follows the other in raising prices or charging new fees. For example, when American announced a charge for a first checked bag on May 21, 2008, United and US Airways introduced their own luggage fees just three weeks later. Similarly, over a period of just two weeks this spring, all four legacy airlines increased their ticket change fee for domestic travel from $150 to $200, the suit notes. But the real damage from five years of industry consolidation shows up in airfares. The average cost of a roundtrip domestic ticket grew to $378.62 last year, up from $351.48 in 2008, when adjusted for inflation. Tom Horton, CEO of American Airlines parent AMR Corp., noted that the companies had spent months trying to convince the Justice Department that the merger would help customers and boost competition. Since the DOJ has formed a contrary view, the matter will now be settled by the courts, Horton said. AMR has been operating under bankruptcy protection since November 2011. Its possible that the lawsuit wont ever go to trial. Analysts said the Justice Department could be seeking more time and leverage to squeeze concessions from the companies, such as giving up some of their precious takeoff and landing slots at Reagan National Airport, which would create room for new competitors at the busy airport across the Potomac River from Washington. At a news conference, Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer said the Justice Department was always prepared to discuss a settlement but that it preferred this time to seek an injunction to block the deal. Federal government, states sue to block airline merger Merger stalled
Seminoles reload, look to repeat as ACC champs Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher believes his Seminoles still have enough talent to make a run at a second straight Atlantic Coast Conference championship despite all the talent they lost to the NFL. Eleven players were selected in the NFL draft and another handful of Seminoles signed free agent contracts. Still, Fisher is confident the Seminoles will be right in the middle of things again this season. Well tweak and turn, were learning, Fisher said. The infrastructure of our program about how we do things wont change right now. A favorable schedule would also appear to benefit the Seminoles. Games at Clemson in midOctober and a season finale at archrival Florida are likely to be the only times the Seminoles may not be favored to win this season. Fishers major challenges include quarterback EJ Manuel (Buffalo Bills), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (Minnesota Vikings) and defensive end Bjoern Werner (Indianapolis Colts), who were all first-round picks in the NFL draft earlier this year. And that doesnt include other Seminoles on last years ACC championship squad who are also vying for roster spots in the NFL, like kicking specialist Dustin Hopkins, who departed after scoring 466 points. The points, and his 88 career field goals, are both NCAA marks for FBS schools. We lost a lot, but theres still a lot coming in, Fisher said. Here are five things to watch during the Seminoles season: 1. QUARTERBACK BATTLE: Jimbo Fisher says the competition is wide open between Jameis Winston and Jacob Coker. The 6-foot-4 Winston and 6-foot5 Coker are both mobile and have strong arms. Coker is talented enough to start elsewhere but Miami running back Duke Johnson is stopped for a loss Oct. 20, 2012, by Florida State linebacker Telvin Smith during a game in Miami. The in-state rivals both have an eye on the ACC title this fall.Associated Press Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Golf/B4 Tennis/B4 Medlen pitches Braves past Phillies. / B2 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Mariners push Rays streak to six Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Leadoff hitter Brad Miller homered twice to help the Seattle Mariners send the Tampa Bay Rays to their sixth straight loss with a 5-4 victory on Tuesday night. Miller has four home runs this season, which have come in a pair of two-homer games. He connected for his first two big league homers on July 19 at Houston. Tampa Bay also got two homers from its leadoff hitter, Ben Zobrist. According to the Rays, it is just the third time since 1916, when records are available, that both leadoff hitters had multihomer games. The others were June 5, 1994 (Minnesotas Chuck Knoblauch and Tony Phillips of Detroit) and July 8, 1965 (Houstons Joe Morgan and Felipe Alou of the Milwaukee Braves). After Justin Smoak ended Chris Archers night with a leadoff single in the sixth, Dustin Ackley gave Seattle a 5-4 lead on a triple off Wesley Wright. Zobrist got the Rays even at 4 on his second homer of the game, a two-run shot in the fifth against Erasmo Ramirez (4-0), who allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. Danny Farquhar pitched the ninth for his fifth save. Smoak had a two-run single through a defensive shift as the Mariners went ahead 3-2 in the fourth. Millers second homer of the game, a fifth-inning shot, made it 4-2. Archer (6-5), who left his previous start last Wednesday at Arizona after 1 2/3 innings due to right forearm tightness, gave up five runs and nine hits over five-plus innings. Miller opened the game with his first leadoff homer and the Mariners eighth this season, which extended the team record. Zobrist tied it at 1 in the bottom of the first on his first career leadoff homer and 100th overall in the majors. The Rays took a 2-1 lead later in the inning on James Loneys RBI single. Mike Peterson trades in helmet for headset Associated PressGAINESVILLE Mike Peterson is back in Gainesville, back in school and back on the field at Florida. The former Colts, Jaguars and Falcons linebacker is working as an undergraduate student assistant for coach Will Muschamp. Getting his sociology degree he needs to complete just two classes this fall and helping the Gators are the first steps to what he hopes will be a coaching career. Then again, Peterson spent his last two years under Atlanta coach Mike Smith mentoring young guys. It was a humbling experience to sit on the sidelines after being a star for so many years and being that guy, Peterson said Tuesday. To sit on the sidelines and to coach players up, coach Smith, he gave me a great opportunity. A lot of times, he would let me run the meeting, so I would actually have to get up there and explain the defense, explain the coverage. So Im comfortable in that role. Naturally, Muschamp has Peterson working with linebackers. Not only does Peterson bring 14 years of NFL experience to the sideline and meeting rooms, but his presence also frees up linebackers coach D.J. Durkin to spend more time in his new role as defensive coordinator. You talk to anybody who coached Mike, we all talk about he was a coach on the field and he obviously was a really good player, said Muschamp, who also has former players Terry Jackson, Chris Leak and Duke Lemmens on staff. But he was a guy that had a cerebral approach to the game and understanding why we did things, not just how to do it, but why. ... Hes doing a fabulous job. Hes got a huge future in this profession. Petersons past was pretty solid, too. He was a first-team, All-Southeastern Conference selection in 1998 after leading the Gators in tackles (127). The Colts drafted him the second round in 1999 and he spent the next decade-plus racking up tackles and making plays all over the field. Peterson has 883 career tackles, 21 1/2 sacks and 19 interceptions in 196 games. He might not be done, either. Peterson acknowledged Tuesday that he intentionally hasnt filed retirement paperwork with the NFL just in case a team calls him in the next couple of weeks. No need to rush. I just want to make sure when that door is closed, its all the way closed, he said.

Unless the Hurricanes defense is much improved, Morris and Johnson might have to be great for their team to have a chance. Morris passed for 3,345 yards with 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions last season, then got a good amount of attention this summer by excelling at the Manning camp, winning the skills competition there. And Johnsons freshman year saw him pile up 2,070 allpurpose yards, mostly on rushes and kickoff returns, where his big-play ability was regularly displayed. These guys have the makeup to be pretty good, said new Miami offensive coordinator James Coley, who was at Florida State last season. So the Hurricanes can run, catch and return the ball. There isnt much question there. Theres huge questions, however, on whether Miami can stop anyone. Miamis defense set a slew of records a year ago, all of them bad. By wide margins, the Hurricanes gave up more points and more yards last season than any team in Miami history, and those numbers 366 points, 5,837 yards allowed surely would have been higher if the school hadnt declined chances to play in the ACC title game and a bowl. Miami sat out its second straight postseason, self-imposing another ban because of the ongoing NCAA investigation. Optimism seems higher than it has been around Miami in either of coach Al Goldens first two seasons with the Hurricanes, and his team with most of its starters back from the club that would have been declared Coastal Division champions last year if not for the postseason ban should be poised to win more than seven games for the first time since 2009. We have the right guys on the train, See FSU/ Page B3 See MIAMI/ Page B3 Cobb expected to pitch ThursdayST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb is expected to pitch Thursday night for the first time in the majors since getting hit in the head by a ball in June. Rays manager Joe Maddon said before Tuesday nights game against Seattle that the team feels Cobb is going to be ready to face the Mariners. Cobb was struck in the right ear by a liner hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15. He has been on a minor league rehab assignment and said Thursdays game with the Mariners will probably feel like another opening day for me. Cobb is 6-2 with a 3.01 ERA in 13 starts this season. Associated PressTampa Bays Ben Zobrist pumps his fist Tuesday after hitting a two-run home run against Seattle in St. Petersburg.
Associated PressATLANTA Kris Medlen continued his late-season surge by winning his fourth straight start, Chris Johnson hit a two-run home run and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Tuesday night. Medlen (10-10) appeared to be in danger of being sent to the bullpen one month ago. In late July, Tim Hudson was lost for the season with a broken right ankle and Paul Maholm went on the 15-day DL with a bruised left wrist. Though Maholm may be only one minor league rehab start away from coming off the disabled list, Medlens spot in the rotation appears more secure. He left after walking Erik Kratz to open the eighth, getting a standing ovation after allowing one run on five hits in seven innings. After David Carpenter pitched a perfect eighth, Craig Kimbrel earned his 37th save by recording the final three outs. Chase Utley had three hits for Philadelphia, including a one-out single off Kimbrel in the ninth. Kimbrel struck out Domonic Brown and ended the game on Darin Rufs popup to first baseman Freddie Freeman. Johnson gave Atlanta a 3-0 lead in the third inning with his homer off rookie Ethan Martin (1-2). Johnson leads the National League with his .337 batting average. Martin, a right-hander who lives in Toccoa, Ga., northeast of Atlanta, lost to Medlen and the Braves for the second time in only three major league starts. Martin took a 6-4 loss to the Braves in his debut on Aug. 2 and allowed three runs on six hits and two walks in five innings Tuesday night. He had six strikeouts. The Braves took the lead in the second. Tyler Pastornicky, recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier in the day when Dan Uggla was placed on the 15-day disabled list, led off with a single and scored on Medlens two-out double over Darin Ruf in right field. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Pastornicky will start at second base as Uggla will miss at least two weeks to have Lasik eye surgery. Johnsons homer in the third drove in Justin Upton, who doubled. Ruf, sprinting toward the infield, made a diving catch of Medlens shallow pop fly in the seventh. Braves center fielder Jordan Schafer ran in to make a tumbling catch of pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsens sinking liner in the eighth. There was a moment of silence before the game in honor of Braves fan Ronald Lee Homer Jr. of Conyers, Ga., who died after falling 85 feet from the stadium to a parking lot during Monday nights game. Players from both teams bowed their heads as Homers picture was shown on the video board.American League Red Sox 4, Blue Jays 2, 11 inn.TORONTO Shane Victorino hit a two-run single in the 11th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2. Jarrod Saltalamacchia drew a oneout walk off Aaron Loup (4-5) and Will Middlebrooks followed with a single. Jacoby Ellsbury grounded into a fielders choice, with Middlebrooks forced at second and Saltalamacchia advancing to third. Ellsbury stole second before Victorino grounded a two-run single up the middle. Koji Uehara (3-0) worked 1 1/3 innings for the win as the Red Sox won for the ninth time in 13 games at Rogers Centre. Trailing 2-1, the Blue Jays tied it in the bottom of the eighth when J.P. Arencibia hit a leadoff home run off Junichi Tazawa. The homer was Arencibias 18th and his first since July 19.Yankees 14, Angels 7NEW YORK Alfonso Soriano homered twice and drove in a careerhigh six runs, Alex Rodriguez had a two-run double, and the New York Yankees bats bailed out a wild CC Sabathia for a 14-7 rout of the Los Angeles Angels. Vernon Wells homered against his former team, and leadoff batter Eduardo Nunez drove in four runs as New York equaled its highest run total of the season. The second-worst, run producing offense in the AL won by more than three runs for the first time in 26 games. Jason Vargas (6-5) gave up two homers in his first start since having surgery to remove a blood clot from near his left armpit on June 26, including Sorianos go-ahead two-run drive in the fifth.Indians 5, Twins 2MINNEAPOLIS Zach McAllister won for the first time in almost three months, Ryan Raburn homered and the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2. Coming off his worst start of the season on Thursday against Detroit, McAllister (5-7) bounced back and held Minnesota to one earned run and four hits in six innings. He struck out seven in his first win since May 23. Josh Willingham homered for the Twins in the second inning, Minnesotas 23rd straight run from a home run.Interleague Marlins 1, Royals 0, 10 inn.KANSAS CITY, Mo. Christian Yelich singled home the go-ahead run with one out in the 10th inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0 after a tidy matchup of contrasting starters. Hard-throwing Marlins prodigy Jose Fernandez and wily Royals veteran Bruce Chen each lasted seven innings before handing the scoreless game over to their bullpens. It continued to extra innings before Kansas City reliever Kelvin Herrera (4-6) brushed the jersey of the Marlins Jake Marisnick with a pitch in the 10th. Marisnick stole second and then scored on Yelichs single through the right side of the infield, his third hit of the game. Chad Qualls (3-1) earned the win for Miami, while Steve Cishek worked around a single in the bottom half of the 10th for his 25h save.

He attended three or four games a month at Turner Field and watched as many televised games as he could, his father said. He always had on a Braves hat. On Monday night, Homer was waiting out a rain delay in a fourthlevel smoking area with a 42-inch railing that would have come up to the 6-foot-6 fans midsection. Hed told his mother during a phone conversation that the rain was letting up and he was about to head to his seat for the game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Shortly afterward, he fell about 85 feet into a parking lot. While its not clear exactly why he fell, police said the death around 8:30 p.m. appears to have been an accident and didnt involve foul play. At least four witnesses told police that no one else was standing near him when he fell.From wire reports
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Golden said. I think the guys that are on the train have excellent leadership and, if theyre not the leader, theyre being really good teammates. I keep saying it, I have some trepidation no matter what because we have a long way to go as an organization, but were moving in the right direction. Five things to watch during the Hurricanes season: 1. SCHEDULE: Miami doesnt leave the Sunshine State until Oct. 17, plays seven of its 12 regular-season games at home and hosts Virginia Tech for the second straight year, a quirky gift that came because of how the schedules had to be configured in the expanded ACC. So in that regard, the Hurricanes seem to have a favorable schedule. But theyre also the only presumed Coastal contender that will meet Florida State this season. 2. STATE BATTLES: The mythicalbut-still-brag-worthy state championship should be on Miamis radar this season. The Hurricanes open at home against Florida Atlantic (Aug. 30), play host to Florida on Sept. 7, make the quick trip to face a rebuilding South Florida team three weeks later and then visit Florida State on Nov. 2. Miami has lost four of its last six games against in-state opponents from major conferences. 3. OFFENSIVE LINE: Stephen Morris and Duke Johnson are good on their own, but Miamis fortunes are tied to the group wholl block for them. Offensive line play should be a strength for the Hurricanes, with plenty of size and experience. Brandon Linder and Shane McDermott might be two of the smarter Hurricanes in years, and Seantrel Henderson says his last season will be played with purpose. If this group stays healthy, Miami will score plenty. 4. DEFENSE PAYOFF: A year ago, the Hurricanes went young on defense, out of sheer necessity in some areas and partly because Miami realized that getting players on the field more in 2012 could pay dividends in 2013. The defensive line has gotten bigger and deeper, so theres reason to think Miami might be considerably better on that side of the ball. 5. IS THIS THE YEAR?: Miami is entering its 10th ACC season and still hasnt won a single conference title. And the last time the Hurricanes so much as won a bowl game was in 2006. Another seven-win season wont be enough for a success. Predicted finish in the ACC: First in the Coastal Division. Injuries happen in training camp and the preseason, and Peterson figures some team still could find itself in need of an experienced veteran. If they give me a call tonight, it may be a little different, Peterson said. But if they give me a call a week from now, Im a loyal guy, a committed guy, and right now, Ive got a commitment to the team here. So, the longer this process goes on, its going to be harder for me to go back. But I think within the next couple weeks or so, I will definitely make an announcement. I just want to make sure that door is closed all the way before I jump into something else. If everything goes as planned, though, Peterson will get his degree along with his first real coaching experience. Its really, really different going back to school, he said. But Im excited about it. You have two dreams as a kid. Not in any particular order, but play professional sports and get a degree. Im thrilled just to be able to accomplish the latter. Awfully excited. Peterson, who grew up just a few miles outside Gainesville, only has fond memories of an NFL career that ended with him serving as a backup linebacker and special teams player. He just missed a chance to make his first Super Bowl when the San Francisco 49ers edged the Falcons 28-24 in the NFC championship game in Atlanta in January. No regrets, said Peterson, who has two sons, 6-year-old Michael Jr. and 3-year-old Gavin. You play the game to win a ring. I cant take back my 14 years. I had a great career. I met some great people and made some great plays. I was chasing it. Thats all I can do. You chase it as hard as I can chase it. You do that as hard as you can and you feel that peace. You can look at yourself in the mirror and feel good about it.

Winston has plenty of talent surrounding him with a pair of 600-yard rushers back and a playmaking receiver in Rashad Greene. Whoever it is, well be fine, senior center Bryan Stork said. Weve (offensive line) got to keep them healthy. We have the potential to be one of the best Olines in the country. 2. THE DEFENSIVE LINE: FSU is replacing four starters up front, but all of the backups have experience. At end, Mario Edwards Jr. started in the ACC championship game and Orange Bowl as a freshman (recording a combined 10 tackles), while senior Dan Hicks will likely start on the other side. And at tackle, junior Timmy Jernigan has 73 career tackles (and two starts), and senior Demonte McAllister had 33 tackles a year ago as a backup. 3. KICKING GAME: Considered one of the top place kickers in the 2012 class, Roberto Aguayo made 5 of 6 field-goal attempts in the spring game (including two from beyond 50). It was a strong start for Aguayo, who replaces the ACCs all-time leading scorer in Dustin Hopkins. 4. NEW COACHES: Fisher overhauled his staff in the offseason and hired six new assistants. Among the departures are defensive coordinator Mark Stoops, who is now the head coach at Kentucky, and offensive coordinator James Coley, who has taken the same job at Miami. Fisher has brought in Jeremy Pruitt, who won the last two national titles as Alabamas defensive backs coach, to take over the defense (linebackers coach Charles Kelly and defensive ends coach Sal Sunseri are also new). Fisher says there will be no offensive coordinator in title, but he will have three new assistants in Randy Sanders, Tim Brewster and Jay Graham. 5. TRIP-UP GAMES: FSU has gone 31-10 in Fishers three seasons, a successful transition from coach Bobby Bowden. But FSU has struggled in games it was heavily favored, losing ACC matchups to N.C. State and North Carolina in 2010, Virginia in 2011 and finally dropping a 16-point second-half lead at N.C. State in 2012. If the Seminoles are a serious contender on the national stage, they cant lose those kind of games. Predicted finish in the ACC: Second in the Atlantic Division.

Since then, there has been a major rule change that is going to affect many of my students and a lot of amateur golfers. That change is the rule concerning the anchoring of the club during the stroke. For those golfers who have been using a long putter or a belly putter, this is going to create a problem for you. You are going to have two choices either learn to putt with your long putter, but not anchored to your body, or switch back to a conventional putter. For those of you who are interested in going to a traditionallength putter but are afraid of the yips, I am going to provide you with some tips to overcome this very frustrating and sometimes debilitating problem. The first step is to decide what type of putter you want to use. There are many different types of putters and the type you use depends on the type of stroke that you use. For golfers who like to have a straight back, straight through stroke, I recommend using a centershafted putter. If you are like me and believe there is a slight ark in the putting stroke, I recommend something that is heal shafted. Other than that, just make sure you like what you are looking down at. When choosing a putter, choose one that is the proper length most golfers use putters that are to long. When we are in our set-up we want our arms hanging as straight as possible with a slight bend at the elbow. There are many set-ups and strokes out there to look at and try. However, it doesnt matter to me how you set your feet or how your posture is. What does matter to me is how you place your hands on the grip and that we are able to make a consistent stroke that returns the putter blade back to the ball the same way, over and over and over. The first step in that process is to make sure your hands are placed on the grip, so if you opened your fingers you would be able to clap your hands together, if the grip was not in the way. The second step is to make sure your grip pressure is relaxed, especially in your right thumb and index finger and DO NOT tighten them during the stroke. A great drill for this is to stroke putts with your right thumb and index finger off the club. This will help eliminate the yips and provide you with a smooth, effortless stroke. A lot of golfers are moving towards really large grips to try to eliminate the hands in the stroke. While these grips help they will not fully eliminate the problem. The third step is to make sure when you are putting you keep your head as still as possible. There are two drills I like to use to work on keeping my head still. The first drill is to set up about three feet from the hole and stroke putts trying to hear the ball go into the hole. If it does not go in, we are not that worried during this drill whether you missed on the right or the left. We are only working on keeping our head still. The second drill is to place a quarter on the putting green, then place a ball on top of the quarter. Stroke putts making sure you are looking at the quarter after the ball is gone. Both of these drills can and should be used with the grip drill from above. For more information please contact me for a lesson at Southern Woods or Sugarmill Woods. See you on the links.

Herb HurleyHERBS HINTS We are back to start giving you the information you need to prepare for the 2013-14 tennis season. We have been in touch with league and tournament organizers, team captains, tennis instructors and clubs to get updates for the new season. Some of the information is old news but still needs to be published for those who missed it the first time, and some info is new. So bear with me and lets review some of the old stuff. All the local leagues are on the lookout for new teams to add to their competition and it would be nice if you could let them know you are interested in fielding a team. There are several communities with two tennis courts, but do not have a team. Maybe you think that two are not enough courts to join a league, but it is. All local leagues, except for the Thursday morning league, only use two courts. Even the Thursday league could be played at two by playing at two different times, but its not necessary. In the other leagues you only need four players to have a team, so if your community has two courts and you can get four players together, give them a call. There is always a sub list where you can pull players if one of your own cant play. By the way, all the leagues are also looking to expand their sub lists. Call them if you are interested to join; you have about six weeks left to find teammates. For all of you who are not living in a development with courts, you can sign up for that sub list or start a team and play on county or city courts. It might be handy to see if they would let you reserve the courts for that set time every other week. So if you are ready to call, just go down the updated list to find the league you are interested in and the chairperson to contact. Come out and join our Citrus County tennis family. Also, last seasons champions appear in the first article of the new tennis season so we all know which team to beat.Tuesday Team Tennis2012-13 Champion: The Sugarmill Matchmakers.

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Key clients to present musical/ C4 Despite all the grumbling about tuition increases and student loan costs, other college expenses also are going up. The price of housing and food trumps tuition costs for students who attend twoand four-year public universities in their home states, according to a College Board survey. Even with the lower interest rates on student loans that President Barack Obama signed into law, students are eyeing bills that are growing on just about every line. Community colleges Private schools Public four-year schools The public two-year schools charged in-state students an average $3,131 last year, up almost 6 percent from the previous year. While the tuition hike was larger than at other types of schools, students at community colleges saw the smallest increase in room and board costs a 1 percent increase to $7,419. Total charges for students to attend an in-state public two-year school: $10,550.Tuition and fees at community colleges are up 24 percent beyond overall inflation over the past five years, according to the College Board. A look at typical college students budgets last year and how theyre changing: Tuition for students attending public four-year schools in their state was an average $8,655 last year, a 5 percent jump from the previous year. They paid more than that $9,205 for housing and food. These schools, like other four-year schools, posted a 4 percent jump in housing costs. Add in books and supplies, transportation and other costs and the total reaches $17,860 to attend an in-state public school, such as a student from Tallahassee attending Florida State University. When grants and scholarships are included, the average student pays $12,110 at such schools.For students who choose to attend state schools outside their home state, the costs increase to $30,911. They pay the same $9,205 price tag for room and board, but the tuition rates are more expensive. The typical student who crossed state lines to attend a public college in 2012 paid $21,706 in tuition and fees after grants and scholarships a 4 percent jump from the previous year. During the past five years, the tuition sticker price at public four-year colleges is up 27 percent beyond overall inflation. On the surface, private four-year schools are the most costly colleges, with the average students sticker price coming in at $39,518 for all expenses. Tuition and fees were $29,056 last year another 4 percent jump while room and board ran to $10,462. After grants and scholarships, the average student paid $23,840 to attend schools such as Yale or Stanford.The tuition at private schools was up 13 percent beyond overall inflation during the past five years adjusted for inflation. Associated Press Not vacation: Summer learning programs crucial PHILIPELLIOTT Associated PressWASHINGTON For many students and teachers, summer vacation was more like summer term. Reading lists. Science camps. Portfolio development. The todo list for kids and teachers sound remarkably alike. Schools are on the hook to improve student performance on high-stakes tests, administrators are eyeing more science and technology instruction, and parents are demanding more for their children. Some studies suggest students lose as much as two months of knowledge over the summer. Advocates say educators cant expect their students to succeed if they, too, spend the summer months poolside. Summer learning space is time for innovation, said Gary Huggins, chief executive officer of the National Summer Learning Association. Innovation doesnt flow easily into the school year. Thats why summer programs used the past few months to try new things. Teachers in one of Chicagos struggling elementary schools huddled for two months this summer to retool the reading curriculum for firstand second-graders. Elsewhere, more than 4,000 teachers turned to a weeklong lesson on water purification to see if parts of it could work during the school year. In New York Citys Harlem neighborhood, students spent six weeks flipping through books on everything from hiphop to Depression-era toys in an effort to spark an interest in reading and narrow the gap between the scores of rich and poor students. All were fresh approaches that could make their way into the school-year classrooms. Think of summer programs as a test drive for some lessons without the pressure, a chance to try something without consequences. If things dont work out, the side effect is that maybe students dont forget so much as they learned last year. Theres been all this work done and investment made over the last nine months and then that investment stops, said Pam Allyn, executive director of LitWorld, a literacy nonprofit. For every kid no matter where they live out of school time is really problematic. Allyn compares it to sports: If youre going for a run or playing tennis, if you take two months off, you might have some muscle memory left but youre not going to be in the same shape. That principle applies to students as well as teachers. In Chicago, principal Shawn Jackson spent the better part of his summer meeting with colleagues to redesign the reading program at Spencer Elementary Technology Academy. It took us a good two months. We took the whole summer, he said. Their answer: a stuffed animal called CY-BEAR. Each student this fall will be given a stuffed bear that they will read to, reducing anxiety to perform well in front of classmates. It sounds unusual, Jackson acknowledges, but studies have found it can help improve scores among students whose parents dont regularly read to them. That translates to needed gains; about 85 percent of Associated PressSophie Mortner, foreground right, reads aloud for youngsters attending LitCamp, a summer reading program offered through the nonprofit literacy organization LitWorld, in the Harlem neighborhood of New York. I often times pick and choose the book that I love, said Mortner, a camp counselor who assists with curriculum development. Often times they choose that book the next day to read. See SUMMER/ Page C2
Jacksons 930 students read below grade level and almost all come from low-income homes. During the school year, there are so many other variables that can come into play. Day-to-day operations, sometimes we get into their own silos, teachers have to worry about the 30 students in front of them, Jackson said. So he and his team competed in the Chicago Public Education Funds Summer Design Program, an innovation challenge that offered educators up to $10,000 to test their ideas. Most people would take the time to relax, Jackson said. Instead, he and his team rewrote the schools reading program, overhauling how his youngest students spend two hours each day. Discovery Education pulled together a free series of lessons rooted in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM, as educators brand the emphasis. One lesson on water was downloaded by 4,000 summer educators. The lesson-in-a-box offered summer school teachers a chance to try a new way to get to students interested in STEM subjects. Video, experiments, journals all ready for teachers and students to try to bring up their STEM literacy among fifthto eighth-graders. As a bonus for one of the nations biggest education companies, it could land them new customers during the regular school year if teachers liked what they saw. Teachers are teaching all day, theyre not given release time. They dont have the time among everything else to come up with these summer lessons, said Lance Rougeux, a former teacher who led the team that put together Discoverys STEM camp curriculum. Among the ready-made lessons, theres one on water in which students build boats to transport weights, measure erosion and calculate the percentage of sugar found in various beverages, while also doing relay races with sponges and other competitions. I think thats the direction people are going: to summer enrichment at a school instead of a camp where you play basketball for half the day, feed you lunch and do some crafts. Theres value in that for social development. But we can trick I hate to say it trick students to learn, Rougeux said. If all were doing is baby-sitting, we dont need summer camps. You need baby-sitting services. If the counselors pick up a trick or two to take with them back to the classrooms this fall, all the better. Thats what leaders in Harlem hoped for the 40 students who attended a LitWorld Camp. We want to do something always fun. They can read what they want. They are encouraged to feel positive about what theyre learning, said Madison Graboyes, who runs the day camp. If students show an interest in cooking or animals, hip-hop or vintage toys, leaders find books that match up with their interests. Students wrote songs based on books on hip-hop and designed their own toys based on the ones they read about from the Depression, Colonial times and ancient Egypt. Were not prescribed to a certain curriculum, she said. Were able to take our goals for what we hope our kids can get out of it and connect that to what they want. That approach perhaps can offset the knowledge loss that happens when they arent reading and counting every day. None of the kids are going to sign up for a reading or math program to be honest. Theyre going to sign up because they can have field trips and guest speakers, Tiffany Cooper Gueye, CEO of summer program giant BELL that teaches thousands of at-risk students in 12 cities including Boston, San Jose, Calif., and Baltimore. Its often the case we mitigate the summer learning loss, she added. Were actually helping them accelerating their learning.

The buildings themselves may be works of art. Many towns have art museums or galleries. But often we dont really see the art in our environment. We dont take time to stop and look. The Mini Page talked with an expert from the Smithsonian American Art Museum to learn more about the elements, or building blocks, of art.True seeing When we view art, its fun to wonder about the decisions the artist made. For example, you might ask: Why is the sculpture in the park made of metal? Why not wood? Why does an artist use certain colors? How does the light change the art? When did the artist create the work? What was going on at that time? If the art was painted during the Revolutionary War, for example, what was the artists point of view? Did that influence how the art was made or what it showed?The building blocks Artists use elements of art to create their works. These elements are: These elements allow the artist to deliver messages, make the viewer feel and think, tell stories or create beauty.Drawing the line The line is the main building block of art. It can be an outline, a shading line, straight, curved, zigzagging or spiral. Different types of lines create different feelings. For example, how does a zigzagging line make you feel? Zigzags can create strong emotions; they give a sense of energy and activity. Your eyes have to work harder, so there is more tension than if your eye just moved straight across the paper. What kind of feelings do curvy lines create? How about straight lines?

It can be strongly suggested, or implied. For example, artists dont have to draw in a black line to show the horizon, or the line where the Earth seems to meet the sky. The composition of the painting creates the horizon line, separating the sky from the ocean or the land.Creating forms When we add depth, shapes become forms with three dimensions: length, width and depth. For example, a square becomes a cube, a circle becomes a sphere and a triangle becomes a cone.Shapes form shapes. For example, three lines come together to form a triangle. Four lines form a square. One continuous line thats bent forms a circle. Shapes can be flat, or they can have depth. Winslow Homer, High Cliff, Coast of Maine, 1894, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art MuseumIn Winslow Homers High Cliff, Coast of Maine, the diagonal, or slanted, horizon line gives a feeling of energy and tension. It makes the viewer feel as if something is about to happen. William E. Norton, Maine Coast, 1875, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art MuseumLook at the horizon line in Maine Coast by William E. Norton. The horizon is an invisible straight line. This creates a calm, smooth scene. Sculptures are all 3-D. It is easy to see three dimensions in sculptures such as Nenuphar by Alexander Calder.Alexander Calder, Nenuphar, 1968, sheet steel, Smithsonian American Art Museum from The Mini Page 2013 Universal U click Sally: How many skunks does it take to make a bad odor?

Space creates forms. Positive space is the part of the picture that your eye focuses on. It is the scenery, the person or the object that is the subject of the art. Negative space is the empty space around the subject. It is the area around, above, below or within objects. It is the background of the subject.Texture Texture is how a thing feels or how it looks like it would feel. Artists use elements such as light and dark to give materials such as cloth or glass a feeling of texture.Color movement. If artists put contrasting colors, such as red and green, next to each other, the colors seem to vibrate. Single colors can seem to move too. Warm colors, such as red, orange and yellow, look like they come forward and blue, seem to move back in space. James Hampton, The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations Millennium General Assembly, 1950-1964, gold and silver aluminum foil, Kraft paper, and plastic over wood furniture, paperboard, and glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum Milton Avery, Sally Avery With Still Life, 1926, oil on cotton, Smithsonian American Art Museum In Sally Avery With Still Life by Milton Avery, the woman, the table and the bowl of apples are positive space. The background is the negative space. The way the artist treats the negative space affects how we see the positive space. For example, in this picture, the negative space is dark and empty. This makes the woman look lonely and sad. The Mini Page thanks Carol Wilson, assistant chair, in-gallery education programs, Smithsonian American Art Museum, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is about the Newbery and Caldecott honor winners. Childe Hassam, Improvisation, 1899, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art MuseumColor helps move the viewers eye around the artwork, as with Improvisation by Childe Hassam. The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations Millennium General Assembly is almost completely symmetrical. Each half has something that echoes the other half. The artist, James Hampton, was a janitor who worked on this sculpture for 14 years in his garage. He made it entirely from discarded materials he fou nd, such as old light bulbs, bits of foil and jelly glasses. John Singleton Copley, Mrs. George Watson, 1765, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum In John Singleton Copleys Mrs. George Watson, the dress looks satiny. How do you think the artist accomplishes this?Tricks of the artist Symmetry (SIM-i-tree) is when one side matches the other. For example, our bodies have symmetry; each half has an arm and a leg. Symmetry calms us. When a scene is not symmetrical, it looks out of balance. This adds energy and tension to the art. Artists use special tricks to create perspective (per-SPEK-tiv), or how the viewer sees things. For example, they use size to make things look close or far away. Things that are small seem farther away than things that are big. from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickSupersport: Michael CuddyerHeight: 6-2 Birthdate: 3-27-79 Weight: 220 Hometown: Norfolk, Va.

STEVEN LASKO/for the ChronicleThe Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Foundation has once again stepped up to help the children of Citrus County by supporting the YMCAs after-school enrichment program. The credit union foundation presented a check for $17,500 to the Citrus County YMCA board at its meeting Aug. 7. The funds are used for scholarships for children who participate in the Ys after-school enrichment program in the public schools. Pictured at center, Mary Tlachac, executive director of the Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union Foundation, presents the check. Accepting the contribution are, from left: Citrus Y chairman Gerry Mulligan, Y executive Joanna Castle, Y board member Joe Cappuccilli, Y board member Chuck Dixon and Y capital campaign co-chairwoman Jewel Lamb. Special to the ChronicleTax-Aide services of the AARP in Citrus County needs technical coordinator volunteers for the season. These are the people who support the computers and computer networks for the free program, said John Clarke, area Tax-Aide coordinator. They are far from complex, primarily consisting of simple peerto-peer networks, understanding relatively simple routers and their configuration and linking a network to the Internet through sitesupplied, dedicated IPs. While, in general, we would anticipate these folks also avail themselves of our tax counselor training, which is of course at no cost, it is not a requirement of the position, Clarke said. Clarke said this need in no way downplays the continuing critical need for tax preparation counselors and volunteers to fill administrative positions. The needs are significant there, as well. Fully 98 percent of our volunteers return year after year, Clarke said. Its, to put it simply, a gratifying, fulfilling and super feeling to know you are helping your friends and neighbors who, through no fault of their own, are struggling on a limited income. There is no charge for our services, ever. Volunteer technical coordinators position, must have some basic technical background. Beyond that, AARP will provide the one-on-one counseling and other tools needed. Visit www.aarp.org/tavolunteer and register to be an AARP TaxAide volunteer. Or, call John Clarke at 352-270-8162, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST14, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Don Hewitt, best known for creating Minutes, said, Lets give the conventions back to the politicians. If we think theres any news, we can tack it on afterward as commentary. But the conventions should be their show, not ours. Lets give the bidding conventions back to the experts. Lets concentrate on the card play, winning the necessary number of tricks. Whatever conventions are used, often the same final contract will be reached. In todays deal, South is in six no-trump. West leads the spade 10. Declarer wins with dummys king, then calls for a low club, getting ready to claim. But when East discards a heart, how should South react? South opened with a strong and artificial two clubs. North responded three clubs to show five-plus clubs and eight-plus points. Then Norths four-diamond rebid was a modern convention, Redwood Roman Key Card Blackwood in clubs. Souths reply showed four key cards (three aces and the club king, or four aces). North put his partner into six no-trump, a wise choice given the bad club break. Declarer has only 11 top winners: three spades, four hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. If he gives West the club king now, South will be forced to find the diamond queen. Instead, he should win with his club ace, then lead the club five. West must duck; otherwise, South claims. Then, after winning the trick with dummys queen, declarer plays a spade to his ace and runs the diamond jack through West. Even if the finesse loses, South has three spades, four hearts, three diamonds and two clubs for his contract.

Several times a week, a group of us go through the supermarket dumpster at night to see what theyve thrown away. Sometimes theres nothing, but other times, theres great stuff. One night, I found nine ears of corn. Another time, it was 23 packs of chicken. Ive found honeydew melons, cherries, grapes, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and all sorts of other goodies. I thoroughly boil the meat and poultry before eating it, and I wash the fruit and pour boiling water over it. It loses some color, but still tastes sweet. I cook all vegetables. The problem is, theres a stigma to this. People give us dirty looks. Were very careful not to make a mess. We leave everything spotless. But the store manager hates us. And if my mother knew about this, shed throw a fit. I cant figure out why this is so despised. Why should I have to pay all that money for food when I can get it for nothing? New York Dear New York: Most people arent willing to go through someone elses garbage in order to find edible food that isnt contaminated, rotten, partially eaten or long past the expiration date. And while we know some folks do this for economic reasons or as a protest against the system, most people find it distasteful and demeaning. We think the owners of groceries and restaurants are entitled to earn a living, too, and we would hope that still-edible food is donated to food pantries whenever possible. Dear Annie: I dont know how to get rid of my pest of a neighbor. I moved to this community three years ago, after my divorce. I befriended Joyce, a woman in her 70s who lives two doors down. Joyce wont leave me alone. When I entertain my fiance or friends, she is sure to walk over uninvited and interrupt us. On several occasions, Ive given her my business card and asked her to call first to make sure Im not busy. It hasnt worked. She also drinks my wine, and even though she has an extensive wine collection, she never offers to replace the bottle she consumed at my place. At times, Ive had to shut my curtains and hide in my bedroom until she is gone. Help. Prisoner in My Own Home in Southern California Dear Prisoner: Joyce is lonely and either clueless or deliberately obtuse. It is a kindness to include her when you can, but you also are entitled to entertain without her. So you will need to be a bit more assertive and willing to upset her. The next time Joyce comes over unannounced and unwanted, stop her at the door and say, Joyce, I have company. You will have to come back another time. If she gets teary, outraged, pushy or anything else, simply repeat that she will have to come back another time. Dont let her walk beyond the threshold. Dear Annie: This is in response to Need To Know in Saskatoon, the woman who disliked her dentist referring to her as dear. I am a busy ob-gyn. I often call my patients by some such all-purpose term of endearment when I blank out and cannot remember their given name. It only means that I am busy and forgetful and have a lot on my mind. But at the same time, I want the patient to feel closer to me than she would if I did not address her at all. Your dentist only wants you to feel relaxed and comfortable. Little Doctor Dear Doctor: That wont work if the patient finds it offensive and condescending. Some people dont mind the endearment. Those who do need to inform the doctor, and the doctor needs to take the objection seriously.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
