QUESTION OF THE WEEK Wendy Kalivoda It shouldnt even be a legit question. God put it here for a reason and it helps many sufferers in multiple ways. Man-made meds have multiple side effects including death. It should be treated like tobacco, only in certain places, age limit, etc. ... Mary Jo O. Tevlin Many ailments can benefit from marijuana. If a person needs it, I feel it should be available to them. Drugs like Valium and OxyContin are prescribed yet marijuana is banned? Tiffany Schultz Support it. There are way too many cases where its shown to be immediately helpful with several medical conditions. And in comparison to pain pills, the side effects are less scary! Skip Brady Actually, after reading our arrest record in the local newspaper, our prison population would be significantly reduced if pot were legalized. I cannot believe there are that many cases needing medicinal pot, and they should have the option of using it, but all my thoughts go up in smoke! Cassie Durham Marijuana has many uses, beyond medical and recreational, used in human civilizations throughout time. If the public only realized the potential of this naturally abundant plant!

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Three pharmacy employees were injured early Sunday morning in an armed robbery attempt involving a knife, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. The suspect, Jacob C. Kleintank, 31, of Alexandria, Va., was visiting family members in Inverness, according to Lindsay Blair, sheriffs office spokeswoman. Kleintank entered CVS Pharmacy at 602 W. Main St. between 9:30 and 10 p.m. Saturday, trying to get a prescription filled, but had been refused because it was an out-of-state order, according to the arrest report. Later, Kleintank returned to CVS at about 12:55 a.m. Sunday, the report stated. When he came back in, the pharmacist met him at the counter and he jumped over the counter and had a knife and tried to stab the pharmacist, Blair said on Sunday. According to the arrest report, Kleintank demanded drugs while holding a two-inch-blade knife in his right hand. The pharmacist put out his hands in defense and received multiple wounds to his hands, Blair said. Two other men employed in the store responded to the pharmacists call for help.

Regarding Duke Energy, GSG reported the utility planned to make a good faith payment of $500,000 higher than last years tax payment. But GSG said Duke likely would modify the amount with the millage rate increase, so GSG elected not to budget this amount at this time because of the uncertainty.

ONLINE POLL RESULTS PATFAHERTY Staff writerFrom the street, it looks like any other new home almost ready for occupancy. But the single-family home on a tree-shaded site in Cinnamon Ridge is probably one of the most energyefficient homes ever built in Citrus County, and the first to use a new construction technology. Instead of stick framing or concrete block construction, the home was built using a wall system made of structural insulated panels, known as SIPs. Fred Kelley of Tampa Bay Builders explained they are 30 percent stronger than block and far exceed basic qualifications. Using a plate system, the panels are bolted to the foundation. They are pre-drilled for electrical wiring and get drywall or stucco like other types of construction. We can do any house any style, he said. The home is about 2,600 square feet and situated to take advantage of the natural shade. Inside, the energy-saving touches include no air ducts in attic and air return lines. In this house, the ductwork becomes interior shelf space and pass-through vents handle the air return. He explained it keeps the air ducts in the space being cooled, instead of running through a hot attic. The system also reduces overhead square footage space that would not be used anyway, but would have to be chilled or heated. Other features keeping with green design are the floor tile, double-pane windows, wall coatings and a more efficient air conditioner. Every product here has been rated green, he said. Even the mud on the walls has no chemicals and the stucco and cement have no fly ash. These measures and filtered air help alleviate indoor pollution, a problem with a tight house. The house also has natural-gas service. Its been a learning curve, said Kelley, who will soon be breaking ground on 10 smaller, unattached single homes taking advantage of the same technology. The energy-saving home is owned by Al and Julie Crislo, who have been visiting the site, eagerly following the construction process. It is expected to be complete by the end of September. The sooner the better, Al Cislo said. His wife, Julie, agreed.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or email@example.com. PAT FAHERTY/ChronicleAl and Julie Cislo stand in front of their energy-efficient home, still under construction in Cinnamon Ridge. The home uses str uctural insulated panels instead of traditional frame construction. Fred Kelley of Tampa Bay Builders shows a sample of the structural insulated panels used in the energy-efficient home.

County accepting applications for fire assessment vacancy adjustments CHRISVANORMER Staff writerLECANTO Residents from lower-lying neighborhoods of Homosassa were invited Thursday to an open house by the Southwest Florida Water Management District to learn the latest updated information about the risk of flooding to their properties that will set future insurance rates. Current data is 10 to 30 years old, according to the water district, which has been researching areas in Homosassa River North, Homosassa River South and Homosassa South Fork watersheds. Water district staff met residents individually to show them new maps, help them find their properties and take anecdotal information about the properties. The blue areas on the maps show parts considered prone to flooding, said Mark Fulkerson, an engineer with the water district. Fulkerson pointed out flood risk areas had changed. The maps will be available for the public and the county to use, said Gene Altman, senior professional engineer. Altman said the county would take the updated maps to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for its future use in insurance rate maps. He said it would be as accurate as the technology could make it. For more information, visit WaterMatters.org/FloodRisk or phone 352-796-7211, ext. 4297.

She was 87. Harris died at her West Chatham, Mass., home of congestive heart failure, actress and family friend Francesca James said. Harris won five Tony Awards for best actress in a play, displaying a virtuosity that enabled her to portray an astonishing gallery of women during a theater career that spanned almost 60 years and included such plays as The Member of the Wedding (1950), The Lark (1955), Forty Carats (1968) and The Last of Mrs. Lincoln (1972). She was honored again with a sixth Tony, a special lifetime achievement award in 2002. Her record is up against Audra McDonald, with five competitive Tonys, and AngelaLansbury with four Tonys in the best actress-musical category and one for best supporting actress in a play. Television viewers knew Harris as the free-spirited Lilimae Clements on the prime-time soap opera Knots Landing. Harris was married three times, to lawyer Jay I. Julian stage manager Manning Gurian and writer William Erwin Carroll. She had one son, Peter Alston Gurian.The Butler stays on top with $17MNEW YORK Lee Daniels The Butler served up a second helping at the box office, topping the weekend with $17 million according to studio estimates Sunday. That was enough to lead all films on a late August weekend known as a dumping ground for studios following their summer blockbusters and before the start of the fall movie-going season. Daniels historical drama about a long-serving White House butler, starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey, last weekend opened with $24.6 million for the Weinstein Co. Three new releases failed to catch on. The teen fantasy Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, adapted from the popular youngadult book series, opened tepidly in third with $9.3 million on the weekend and $14 million since opening Wednesday. With franchise hopes, Sony Screen Gems has already started production on a sequel, again starring LilyCollins as a New York teenager who discovers she has mystical powers. Edgar Wrights pub-crawlgone-wrong comedy The Worlds End opened with $8.9 million for Focus Features. That was a better start for The Worlds End, which stars Simon Pegg, than Wrights last film with the actor: 2007s Hot Fuzz. It opened with $5.8 million. Playing in 1,549 theaters, The Worlds End did its business in less than half the theaters of The Butler or Mortal Instruments. Despite good reviews, Lionsgates home-invasion horror flick Youre Next opened weakly with $7.1 million. With a cumulative total of $52.3 million, The Butler is headed for a domestic haul of $100 million. It has followed the release pattern of another movie about race and domestic service: the 2011 drama The Help, also released in August. The Weinstein Co. hopes that The Butler will similarly lead to Oscar nominations. From wire reports Associated PressAmerican actor Ashton Kutcher, who portrays Apples Steve Jobs in the film Jobs, smiles Sunday at a promotional event hosted by the Macworld iWorld expo in Beijing, China.

one from Sumter County to recover unpaid wages. Grant explained it goes back between three and seven years. The action alleges the plaintiffs were required to work in excess of 40 hours of a week for a salaried amount, performing non-managerial functions without overtime compensation. It claims the vast majority of their hours were spent performing nonmanagerial job duties. And during the time period covered by the complaint, they were employed in the capacity of managerial employees. They were doing tax returns, said Grant. They were making less than minimum wage working 60-70-80 hours a week in violation of the Federal Labor Standards Act. The Florida defendant is TaxPrep1 Inc., based in Orange County, which owns and operates tax preparation services and does business as Jackson Hewitt Tax Service. The lawsuit intends to represent all similarly situated employees of the defendant regardless of location. He said those individuals will be notified by letters and will have to opt in if they want to be part of the class-action lawsuit. The company had 21 days to respond. Grant expects to find out during the discovery stage whether the action will extend beyond Florida. Hewitt Jackson did not respond to email requests for comment through its media information site. According its website, Jackson Hewitt, one of the nations largest income tax services, has 6,800 franchised and companyowned locations throughout the United States, including 2,800 inside Walmart stores.

Chronicle to talk about hunger in Citrus County and what she feels is her calling to help ease the hunger pains until the deeper problem is solved.CHRONICLE: For you, this is more than just bananas. You have a real passion for leftovers and surplus food. Where did that come from? LATTIN: Growing up in a family of seven my dad grew up in a family of 13 and my mom in a family of seven we learned to appreciate leftovers. We also learned that what you put on your plate, you will eat before you leave the table. So, we were very conscious of the food you take and the food you eat and the food you waste, and it became ingrained in me. Even today, food waste is intolerable to me, especially with all the people in America who are hungry all the time. Food waste should never, ever be. Theres a place for food that you may not want but someone else may want and need. CHRONICLE: That evolved into Citrus County Harvest when did you start that? LATTIN: We started Citrus County Harvest, a food recovery program, in 1999. We started with a small board of nine people ... all who had shown compassion for somebody else. We found food that was still good one of the first donors, and theyre still a donor today, is Citrus Memorial hospital. They save their food (from the cafeteria) and package it, label it, freeze it until our volunteers go by and pick it up on a weekly basis ... and deliver it to soup kitchens around the county. Harvest is still responsible for organizing and facilitating the two (semi-annual) post office food drives; however, this year were going to turn those drives over to the Community Food Bank of Citrus County, because thats why we started the food bank. We now have 15 people on our board, because in 2009 we introduced our program, Blessings in a Backpack. That program has kicked our bums. We work round the clock, and when I say we Im talking about a team of 200 volunteers who make up the duties of this program. CHRONICLE: Is it in every elementary school now? LATTIN: It will be, at least we hope it will be. Just this year we filled out a United Way request for proposal under the health (category) and applied for $15,000. If we get approved, well bring on the last elementary school, Rock Crusher Elementary. CHRONICLE: How did the Blessings in a Backpack start? LATTIN: It started as a request from Stan Curtis, the founder and CEO of USA Harvest. He called and asked us to support this program that he was starting in Kentucky. We met him in Orlando and talked to him about all the nuts and bolts of getting the program started here. It took us two years to put it all together, because we were so overwhelmed by everything that had to take place we had to raise our own money to fund it. CHRONICLE: For those who arent familiar with this backpack program, explain it. LATTIN: Typically, we provide three meals a day for Saturdays and Sundays when children arent in school. These children qualify for this program by being on the federally funded meal program, either the free or reduced (-price) breakfast and lunch program. Often, when these children go home on the weekend, they dont have food and they dont eat again until they come back to school on Monday. Youre shaking your head we did, too. We couldnt believe there was that kind of hunger and food insecurity in this county, but it exists. So, we decided were going to start this program, and were going to make it happen. We started out filling backpacks that would go to the schools for the schools to disperse to the children on Fridays. CHRONICLE: What kind of food? LATTIN: Individual, pop-top, ready-to-eat foods. That costs a little more, but the reason for that: Oftentimes these children are home alone, home without electricity, without running water, etc. So, the types of food we give them are bottled water and another drink, entres, fruits like applesauce or raisins, snacks such as crackers, Jell-O or pudding, canned meat or beans, breakfast items we get a lot of food donations from the community to support the program. This support offsets our cost for food by about $5,000 to $7,000. CHRONICLE: How much does it cost per child? LATTIN: Weve kept the cost per child per year at $100. When we did our homework this summer, we realized $100 per student doesnt cover the cost of food anymore. It did in 2009 it doesnt in 2013. A more realistic cost is $140 or $150. CHRONICLE: How many children are in the program? LATTIN: We will support up to 100 kids at each school, and were in 10 schools, so we can service up to 1,000 kids this school year every weekend for 35 weeks. Thats a lot of money. Its a lot of work. Its $10,000 per school if we hang with the $100 cost per student. That cost per student includes any schoolage siblings in the household as well. Last year, we served over 900 kids. As a board, were seeking other revenue sources, like grant applications to Publix, which is our main retailer for food. We spent over $120,000 at Publix over the last three years. Weve sought funding from the United Way ... and Bank of America, which has been a partner with us every year since we started. Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union has been an enormous partner with us every single year. Were looking for more avenues and more resources. CHRONICLE: You mentioned its no longer a backpack program last year you changed the name to Citrus County Blessings. LATTIN: Yes. Last year, two of our schools said they didnt want to use backpacks; they just wanted to use plastic bags. We know why, too. We clean and disinfect the backpacks every week when we receive them. The way it works: Teams of volunteers fill the backpacks with food every Wednesday or Thursday and theyre brought to the schools where theyre dispersed to the kids on Fridays. The backpacks come back to school on Monday and our volunteers pick them up on Wednesday. These two schools said even before we get them, the backpacks oftentimes a cat or dog has gotten into them, food is left in them, things are crawling out of them, they dont smell very good. It became hard to keep them disinfected to a point where it wasnt safe to send food home. ... We used double plastic bags provided for us by Publix, and it was an overwhelming success. Now, beginning Friday, Sept. 6, every school will be using plastic bags. They dont have to bring them back, theres no disinfecting, and we are thrilled. So, we are no longer a backpack program. CHRONICLE: Whats next for Debbie Lattin? LATTIN: To try and find a replacement for me. I would like to be retired. I retired from banking in 2005 and didnt want to do anything else but follow my passion, which is service to the community in Citrus County. I dont want to lead anything any more. I just want to be a handson helper in many areas. CHRONICLE: Are you a natural leader or a reluctant leader or both? LATTIN: I dont know how to answer that. I just do what I do because I love to help others.

the responders was stabbed beneath his left armpit, while a second employee sustained an abdominal wound. Although three pharmacy employees were injured, Blair said they were able to push the suspect to the floor and keep him there until a deputy arrived. According to the arrest report, the deputy removed the knife from the suspects right hand, handcuffed him and took him into custody. The deputy called for emergency medical services to treat the three employees. The pharmacist with injured hands was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital for further treatment. The employee with the abdominal injury was flown by Shands helicopter to Ocala Regional Medical Center. The employee with a puncture wound below his left armpit was treated by EMS and remained on scene until the store manager arrived. According to the arrest report, Kleintank was considered to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs. It was recommended that Kleintank not be allowed bond because he was considered a flight risk. He was arrested at 3:05 a.m. Sunday and charged with one count of armed robbery and three counts of aggravated battery with intent to kill. decrease in fund balances during past years. GSG also observed the traditional approach to budgeting is incremental spending based on anticipated revenue. But the incremental style is not up to the financial challenges posed by the new normal of flat or declining revenues, upward cost pressures from health care, pensions and service demands and persistent structural imbalances. GSG will recommend the county consider a priority-driven budgeting, a target-based budgeting or a zero-base budget approach. In priority-driven budgeting, resources would be allocated by goal achievement. In targetbased budgeting, the board would identify strategic priorities and rank them for funding. Zero-based budgeting would require setting the service needs and the supporting resources annually. At 2:15 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to adopt fees and assessment rates for 2013-14 for Solid Waste Management. The business plan forecast states that the county has no need to increase fees and cash reserves are adequate.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2013 County board misrepresents citizensThis citizen-voter endured two days (July 23 and 24) observing the performance of the Citrus County Board of Commis sioners. In short, it was appalling. Our county government is out of control despite vigorous citizen opposition the likes of which I have never before witnessed. Both tax-increase issues got the boards approval for final action in the fall, including a millage increase of 30 percent, which is something far and beyond anything I have heretofore witnessed or heard of anywhere! Our county government has now totally disgraced itself at the expense of working folks, while layering an additional economic burden on the backs of the underemployed. One can only hope that grassroots citizen opposition turns this around before final passage. Should it not, it will hasten my decision to seek more decent government elsewhere. This battle is not over. I await the citizen outrage to blossom. In the interim, the board members are reminded that it was our votes that appointed them to serve us. They serve at our pleasure. And it will be our votes that will remove them from their apparently imagined lofty stations at our displeasure. Be reminded: Thats how actual democracy works.Rolf Norbom Crystal RiverMissing word changes meaningMissing word to add to the editorial: Should stand your ground be repealed? The sentence as published is located near the end of the third paragraph and read as follows: (Note: I inserted a pair of parentheses where the word if should have been.) As this concept grew it was expanded to include the concept that ( ) you had a right to be where you were, you were not obligated to turn your back on a deadly threat and run for your life, you had a right to defend your existence then and there. When published, the word that was left out was if. Then the sentence would have read: ... if you had a right to be where you were ... For example, if you were invited to a gathering you have a right to be there. If you were not invited or are asked to leave, you may no longer have a right to be there. In which case, if something undesirable happens you may no longer receive any benefit from that concept. That is why the word if is critically important to the understanding of that sentence and the concept itself.Robert Best Crystal River Rep. Steve King is a flagwaving, card-carrying, all-American jerk. In a recent interview with the conservative website Newsmax, the Iowa Republican was discussing the Dreamers, young people brought to this country as small children by undocumented parents. For every one whos a valedictorian, he snarled, theres another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and theyve got calves the size of cantaloupes because theyre hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Kings remarks were immediately condemned by fellow Republican and House Speaker John Boehner as hateful and ignorant. But lets be honest. The Congressman represents an uncomfortable and undeniable streak in our history and our culture. We are a nation built by immigrants. We are also a nation that has resisted and resented each wave of newcomers as unworthy and un-American. If the blazing torch of the Statue of Liberty is a national symbol, so are the burning crosses of the Ku Klux Klan. And Kings reference to overdeveloped leg muscles is hardly new. Xenophobes have long used distorted body parts to disparage foreigners big noses, small brains, oily hair. Electing a black president whose father emigrated from Kenya is an important blow to our nativist impulses. But his opponents have repeatedly tried to discredit Barack Obama as an alien, a Muslim socialist with a funny name and floppy ears who wasnt even born in the United States. During his first campaign, a woman in Minnesota blurted out what others only whispered: I dont trust Obama. I have read about him. Hes an Arab. Four years later, the Pew Research Center reported that only 49 percent of respondents could correctly identify the president as a Christian, while 17 percent thought he was a Muslim. And they did not mean that as a compliment. Political Research Associates, a progressive think tank, summed up this tawdry tradition: This country has a long history of distrust, persecution and exclusion of those seen as having foreign ties and questionable allegiances. Major social movements have been based on the belief that certain ethnic, racial or political groups are by definition disloyal. History teaches, however, that those social movements are always wrong. America is enriched, every day, by the vigor and vitality of its immigrants. Obama was right when he said in his first inaugural, We know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. Thats why its so important for people of courage to stand up to the haters, to dress them down and call them out. People like Ralph L. Carr. Carr was born in 1887, the son of a miner, and grew up in small Colorado towns like Cripple Creek. He became a lawyer and in 1938 was elected governor. Two months after Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt ordered the forcible internment of more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans, many of them native-born citizens. Gov. Carr condemned the order and said at the time: The Japanese are protected by the same constitution that protects us. They have the same rights as we have. ... If you harm them, you must harm me. I was brought up in a small town where I knew the shame and dishonor of race hatred. I grew to despise it because it threatened the happiness of you and you and you. Carr suffered for his stance, losing a race for the Senate later that year and disappearing from public life. But today he is hailed as a hero. Last May, Colorado dedicated a new judicial center named for Carr and a plaque in the state capitol lauds him as a wise, humane man, not influenced by the hysteria and bigotry directed against the Japanese Americans during World War II. Last year, the Japanese American Citizens League created the Gov. Ralph L. Carr Award for Courage. In July, the award went to three men who were instrumental in passing a 1988 bill that awarded $1.6 billion in reparations to those unfairly detained during the war: President Ronald Reagan, a Republican, who signed the legislation; Speaker Jim Wright, a Democrat, the lead sponsor; and Glenn Roberts, the Congressional staffer who drafted the measure. We were at the awards ceremony because Glenn is Steves brother. We watched with great pride as dozens of JapaneseAmericans shook his hand, sought his autograph and introduced their children. If American history is an enduring struggle between light and darkness, between the Ralph Carrs and the Steve Kings, the Carrs will win. They have to win, if America is to live up to its own ideals.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. What we must decide is perhaps how we are valuable rather than how valuable we are.Edgar Z. Friedenberg, 1921-2000 Ralph Carrs profile in courage CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

This happens about 25 to 30 times a month. And then there is an even better chance the individual will get a shockingly high bill for that transport as much as $20,000 or more. This fact has led Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and Nature Coast EMS to discuss whether there is a way the medical expertise of EMS personnel and the helicopter owned by the sheriffs department could be put together to provide this service at a better price to Citrus County residents. Air ambulance in Citrus County is currently provided by a for-profit company. Both the sheriffs office and EMS emphasize that the conversations are in the preliminary stages, and there is still much research to be done before any decisions are made. However, Dawsy is serious enough about the idea that he and other county officials recently went to Broward County to look at their medical flight program, and a trip is planned to look at a similar program in Volusia County. According to the sheriffs office, the key questions that need to be answered are (a) does this fit with the mission of the department, (b) can the sheriffs office provide the service at the level it is being supplied now, and (c) can it be done cost-effectively? Cost is of course a key issue, because helicopters are expensive to own and to operate, and a medical helicopter does not fly all of the time. Much of the time it is on standby, but even when it is not flying, it must be ready to fly and a crew must be ready to leave at a moments notice. While the sheriffs helicopter now has to be ready at all times, having it serve as an air ambulance would require not only that the machine and pilots be available, but that the qualified medical personnel to staff it also be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Another question is whether the current helicopter could be modified to become an air ambulance, and if so, at what cost. These are answerable questions, and worth asking. Citizens of the county are already paying for owning and maintaining a helicopter and its flight crews. If these resources can be used for additional services, this could be a benefit, provided using the sheriffs office helicopter as an air ambulance does not negatively impact public safety. We encourage the sheriff and EMS to continue this dialogue and to do the math on whether the idea makes financial sense for Citrus County residents. THE ISSUE:Sheriff evaluating air ambulance service.OUR OPINION:Option worth considering, but do the math.

Missed opportunities in sheriffs budgetDuring the July 24 BOCC budget hearing, Cmdr. (Buddy) Grant was given the privilege of making the sheriffs budget presentation. While we saw a new face making this presentation, sadly we got the same old shell game. Grant spoke of budget reductions by providing a list of seven examples of positions re-classified. Unfortunately, most of these reductions took place over the past couple of years, and the 2008 mass promotion of four lieutenants to nonexistent captains positions, resulted in three captains in command of the patrol division. He also failed to mention the two massive rounds of promotions made earlier this year after the retirements of the two bureau commanders. He concluded this list by claiming savings from the retirement of their public information officer and how they reduced that position to a media relations specialist. While this is correct, this reclassification did not result in any savings to the budget. The former PIO was earning $80,000 in salary and benefits. She was also the only nonsworn administrative employee who did not have a take-home car. In fact, for the bulk of her career with CCSO she handled the media alone without a car. Approximately six years ago, the sheriff added a media relations specialist who assisted her in her duties, and was given a takehome car to do so. With the retirement of the PIO, this person was promoted to media relations manager, earning the same salary and benefits as the nowretired PIO with a takehome car. The countys PIO was then hired to fill the vacant media relations specialist position, earning $70,000 salary and benefits, with a take-home car. So actually, the budget for the now revamped media information and relations unit has increased with the addition of a second take-home car. By contrast, the city of Clearwater uses one PIO for both police and fire, with a take-home car, salary of $62,000, plus benefits. Grant also stated the BOCC had asked the sheriff to reduce his budget by $400,000, which he claimed they did by once again banking our holiday pay. Once again we have government leader(s) not understanding what a budget reduction is. As Grant pointed out, this action will be a liability for following fiscal years. This is not a reduction, as it is merely kicking the can down the budget road. This is no small matter, as it will literally gut the intended effect of the 3 percent COLA. If there is any doubt, just look at the total figures. The COLA will cost $538,047, while the banking of holiday pay will take $401,000 from the pockets of their employees, for a net gain of $137,046 shared between 376 employees. In effect the banking of holiday pay is a forced loan from the employees to the sheriff without interest. There were other savings opportunities that could have been used. The sheriff could have reduced discretionary flight time of the helicopters by 20 hours, which would have saved between $200,000 and $300,000. He could have parked the takehome cars for non-sworn administrative personnel, for fuel, maintenance, and insurance savings of between $60,000 and 100,000. He had the chance to eliminate a bureau commanders position and save close to $150,000 in salary, benefits and vehicle costs. Finally, he could have saved close to $90,000 by not filling the media relations specialist position (salary, benefits, and vehicle costs). These are just some of the savings opportunities that could have been made to cut the budget without taking the holiday pay of line employees.Steven Burch Beverly HillsUtopian wish listI read the article by Dennis Damato regarding the extension and all the benefits it will bring to Citrus County. Early on the extension was touted as a relief to traffic on (Interstate) 75, but I guess someone realized that was not going to be a big plus. I can really laugh at the thought of semis paying the tolls, stopping how many times for lights in Chiefland, Perry, etc. Now we are asking for an interchange at County Road 495. His entire position is based on a utopian wish list. Tourism and ecotourism might bring a few to the county, but until you have beaches you wont attract the hordes of tourists Damato indicates will come if we just build a $500 or $600 million highway. Why not use that state monies to expand I-75? I sure would like some proof of the economic trigger he envisions; or are we looking at another political boondoggle, spending money we do not have and probably will not have for a long time? Scott Adams principles for the counties future make a lot more sense.George Pratt HernandoOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, AUGUST26, 2013 A11 000FV2A Does your old fur need anExtreme MAKEOVER?

Gusting winds add problems Associated PressGROVELAND, Calif. For 30 years, Ike Bunney has run a dude ranch amid the tall pines and steep canyons along the North Fork of the Tuolumne River in Californias Sierra Nevada. Now his 15 horses are safe in distant pastures as wildfire on the northern edge of Yosemite National Park threatens his mountain community. Weve already evacuated the horses, said Bunney, who was maintaining vigil Sunday at his Slide Mountain Guest Ranch. I think theyre worried about the fire sparking over these hills. At the nearby Black Oak Casino in Tuolumne City, the slot machines were quiet as emergency workers took over nearly all of the resorts 148 hotel rooms. The casino is empty, said casino employee Jessie Dean. Technically, the casino is open but theres nobody there. As thick smoke portends the fires fast approach, the area has been cleared of everyone but locals and emergency workers. Dean lives on the reservation of the Tuolumne Band of MeWuk Indians and left her four children at relatives homes in the Central Valley. With winds gusting to 50 mph on Sierra mountain ridges and flames jumping from treetop to treetop, hundreds of firefighters have been deployed to protect this and other communities in the path of the Rim Fire raging north of Yosemite National Park. Eight fire trucks and four bulldozers were deployed to work near Bunneys ranch on the west side of Mount Baldy. Overnight the fire grew 7 square miles as firefighters gained little ground in slowing the now 207 square-mile blaze, said Daniel Berlant of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Today, unfortunately, we are expecting strong winds out of the south, he said. Its going to allow the fire to advance to the northeast. Fire officials are using bulldozers to clear contingency lines on the Rim Fires north side to protect the towns of Tuolumne City, Ponderosa Hills and Twain Hart. The lines are being cut a mile ahead of the fire in locations where fire officials hope they will help protect the communities should the fire jump containment lines. The high winds and movement of the fire from bone-dry brush on the ground to 100-foot oak and pine treetops have created dire conditions. Officials estimate containment at just 7 percent. Panda cub Associated PressA member of the panda team at the Smithsonians National Zoo performs the first neonatal exam Sunday on a giant panda cub born Friday, in Washington. The cub appeared to be in excellent health, zookeepers reported after a 10-minute physical exam. Mom: Pa. girl off oxygen after two lung transplantsPHILADELPHIA The mother of a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl recovering from two double lung transplants said the girl has been taken off oxygen and is doing well. Janet Murnaghan told The Associated Press on Sunday that her daughter Sarah was taken off oxygen but still gets support from a machine that helps her breathe. Murnaghan said that in the last few days Sarah has started to walk around the hospital with the aid of a walker and has even gone outside briefly. The Newtown Square girl with end-stage cystic fibrosis received the transplants at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia after a federal judge intervened in her parents lawsuit challenging national transplant rules. Sarahs first set of adult lungs failed after a transplant June 12. A second set was transplanted three days later.68 dogs found after fire at NYC homeNEW YORK Sixty-eight dogs have been rescued from a blaze in a New York City home. Fire officials said the fire in the two-story house in Staten Island was reported on Friday evening. It was extinguished in about a half hour. No injuries were reported. Officials said the owner of the single-family home was a hoarder who collected smallbreed dogs as well as trash. Some of the animals were kept in a yard next to the house. Richard Gentles of Animal Care & Control of NYC said the dogs were removed to a shelter. He said a medical team is evaluating them and caring for them. Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the blaze.Pa. county to study trail link to Flight 93 siteSHANKSVILLE, Pa. A western Pennsylvania county is exploring the possibility of extending a public trail system to the Flight 93 National Memorial. The Daily American reported Sunday that Somerset County will seek proposals for a feasibility study on the best way to extend the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail north to the Flight 93 National Memorial. The memorial honors the passengers and crew members killed when the plane crashed into a field Sept. 11, 2001, after they fought back against hijackers. Somerset County has obtained more than $100,000 in grants and donations for the project. Officials expect to hire a firm to conduct the study sometime this fall.

Mexico migrant train derails; at least 5 deadVILLAHERMOSA, Mexico An infamous cargo train carrying at least 250 Central American migrants heading to the U.S. derailed in a remote region of southern Mexico on Sunday, killing five and injuring 16, authorities said. The train company and rescue workers were bringing in two cranes to help search for more victims among the eight derailed cars of the train known as The Beast, officials said. Thousands of migrants ride its roof on their way north each year, braving brutal conditions for a chance at crossing into the U.S. The Tabasco state government said at least 250 Honduran migrants were on the train heading north from the Guatemala border. Heavy rains had loosened the earth beneath the tracks and shifted the rails, officials said. The locomotive and first car did not derail and were used to move victims to the nearest hospital, which was in the neighboring state of Veracruz. Tabasco state Civil Protection chief Cesar Burelo Burelo said the accident took place at 3 a.m. Sunday in a marshy area surrounded by lakes and forest that is out of cellphone range. The Red Cross said dozens of soldiers, marines and civilian emergency workers rushed to the area, which ambulances couldnt reach. Officials were trying to establish air or water links to the scene. Mario Bustillos Borge, the Red Cross chief in Tabasco, described the rescue as a complex situation that was making it difficult to get rapid confirmation of the true number of dead and injured. There are some very high estimates, and others that are more conservative, he told a local radio station, without providing details. Insurgent attacks in Iraq kill at least 41BAGHDAD Authorities said a spate of attacks across Iraq has killed at least 41 people, extending a wave of bloodshed roiling the country. Police and hospital officials said the attacks Sunday included two evening bombings in the city of Baqouba, about 35 miles northeast of Baghdad. One blast in a residential area there killed seven and wounded 34, while another next to a wedding party convoy killed four and wounded 17. Authorities said another bomb exploded inside a coffee shop in Baghdads Shaab neighborhood, killing three and wounding 16 others. Officials said another hit a group of youth playing football in Madain, killing four and wounding 13. Hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release the information. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA firefighter watches for spot fires Sunday during a burnout operation while battling the Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park, Calif. Fire crews are clearing brush and setting sprinklers to protect two groves of giant sequoias as a massive week-old wildfire rages along the remote northwest edge of Yosemite National Park. Yosemite fire poses challenges Syria agrees to UN probe of purported attacks Associated PressDAMASCUS, Syria Syria reached an agreement with the United Nations on Sunday to allow a team of international experts to visit the site of alleged chemical weapons attacks last week outside Damascus, state media and the U.N. said. A statement on Syrian state television said Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem and U.N. disarmament chief Angela Kane struck the deal during talks in Damascus, and that the two sides are working to finalize the date and time of the visit. The world body said that a team of U.N. experts already in Syria has been instructed to focus on investigating the purported attack on Wednesday. The mission is preparing to conduct on-site factfinding activities on Monday, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said in a statement. Anti-government activists and Doctors Without Borders say that more than 300 people were killed in the alleged toxic gas attack on the eastern suburbs of the Syrian capital. Images purporting to show the aftermath of the attack are filled with people gasping for breath and dead children unmarked by any wounds. The eastern Ghouta area where the attack took place is under opposition control, which makes arranging a trip across the front lines difficult. Rebels and the main Western-backed opposition group have said they would guarantee access and the safety of a U.N. team to facilitate an investigation. Nesirky said the Syrian government affirmed that it will provide the necessary cooperation, including the observance of the cessation of hostilities at the locations related to the incident. He added that U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon would like to reiterate that all relevant parties equally share the responsibility of cooperating in urgently generating a safe environment for the mission to do its job efficiently and providing all necessary information. The deal appears to meet the demands of the world powers, including the U.S., Britain, France and Russia, all of whom called on the Syrian government to cooperate with the U.N. and grant inspectors access to the sites. Confirming whether chemical weapons were indeed used carries enormous stakes, and could play a large role in determining the future course of Syrias civil war. It has reinvigorated debate about the possible use of foreign military action in the conflict. Last week, France said that if an independent investigation confirms that chemical weapons were indeed employed, then military force could be used in Syria. The U.S. Navy has sent a fourth warship armed with ballistic missiles into the eastern Mediterranean Sea, closer to Syria, as President Barack Obama considers a military response. A senior administration official said Sunday that the U.S. has very little doubt that chemical weapons were used in Wednesdays attack. The official said the U.S. intelligence community based its assessment, which was given to the White House, on the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured and witness accounts. That appeared to align with French assessments, as well. The U.S. official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter. In Paris, French President Francois Hollande said a body of evidence suggests that chemical weapons were used during Wednesdays attacks, and that Syrian President Bashar Assads regime was most likely behind it. According to a statement Sunday from his office, Hollande said everything leads France to believe the regime was behind the attack. It didnt elaborate. The U.N. team that will carry out the investigation arrived in Syria last week to look into three earlier purported chemical attacks. The mission is led by Swedish expert Ake Sellstrom. Associated PressBlack columns of smoke rise from heavy shelling Sunday in the Jobar neighborhood, east of Damascus, Syria. Syria reached an agreement with the United Nations on Sunday to allow a U.N. team of experts to visit the site of alleged chemical weapons attacks last week outside Damascus, state media said.

I am ... the 12-time major title winner began, haltingly, during an interview with The Associated Press. You know ... he resumed, before smiling sheepishly and pausing again. Eventually, Nadal offered something of a complicated answer. I have to say that I am very well, because the results have been amazing since I came back, he said. If I say something else, (it) will sound strange. Thats because when the years last Grand Slam tournament begins today, none of the players setting foot on the blue hard courts of Flushing Meadows possesses as much momentum or is in as fine form as the No. 2seeded Nadal. Hes won his past 10 matches heading into the first round against the 97th-ranked Ryan Harrison of the United States. Another past U.S. Open champion on this afternoons schedule is 2000-01 winner Venus Williams, a former No. 1 now ranked 60th who will be taking on recent Wimbledon semifinalist and 12th-seeded Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. At night, Williams younger sister Serena, the defending champion, plays 2010 French Open winner Francesca Schiavone of Italy, while 17-time major champion Roger Federer faces 62ndranked Grega Zemlja of Slovenia. The biggest curiosity when it comes to Nadal these days is how his knees will hold up. Theyve presented recurring problems for him over the years, particularly the left one, which kept him out of action from late June 2012 until February 2013. He missed Rafael Nadal See NADAL/ Page B3 NY avoids sweep with 2-1 win Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Curtis Granderson hit a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning and the New York Yankees avoided a three-game sweep by defeating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday. Alfonso Soriano started the winning rally with a one-out double off Jamey Wright (2-2). He stole third and came home on Grandersons fly ball to center. Mariano Rivera, making his last regular-season appearance at Tropicana Field, received a standing ovation before getting the final three outs for his 38th save. The closer is planning to retire after this season. Pinch hitter Alex Rodriguez opened the 10th with a single to center off Wright and went to second on Brett Gardners sacrifice. Rodriguez then was doubled off second after Wright grabbed a line drive by Ichiro Suzuki that appeared headed toward center field. Rodriguez, who is appealing his 211game suspension by Major League Baseball, was booed every time he came to the plate during the series. He went 2 for 9 with two strikeouts. New York manager Joe Girardi had the third baseman on the bench at the start of the series finale, due to a day game after a night game. Rodriguez didnt make his season debut until Aug. 5 after having offseason hip surgery. Evan Longoria homered and drove in two runs for the Rays. New York got a homer and two RBIs from Robinson Cano. The Yankees took a 2-1 lead in the sixth on Canos RBI double off Alex Cobb. He was easily thrown out attempting to stretch the hit into a triple. Longoria responded with his 28th homer in the bottom half. Cano had an opposite-field homer to left during the fourth. Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist took away an RBI single from Lyle Overbay later in the inning when he drove to his left and then make an accurate throw to first for the inningending out. Longoria put the Rays up 1-0 with an RBI single in the first. Yankees starter Ivan Nova avoided further damage by getting an inning-ending double play from James Loney with the bases loaded. Nova allowed six hits and tied a career high with six walks in 6 2/3 innings. Cobb gave up seven hits over 5 2/3 innings. It was the right-handers third start after missing two months after being struck in the head by a liner hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15.

It was the 14th championship game for Japan, which was making its fourth straight appearance in the title game, and ninth championship.

Associated PressAdam Scott tees off on the fifth hole Sunday during the final round of The Barclays in Jersey City, N.J. Scott won the opening tournament of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Errorless Adam Scott opens FedEx Cup playoffs with a win Associated PressJERSEY CITY, N.J. Masters champion Adam Scott won The Barclays on Sunday after everyone around him did their best to lose it. Scott played bogey-free at Liberty National, making only two birdies on the back nine for a 5-under 66 that put him in the mix of a crowded leaderboard at the top. Turns out he was the only one who stayed there. I cant believe it, to be honest, Scott said after winning the FedEx Cup playoffs opener. I just played a good round today and I came in and really didnt think it had a chance. But obviously, things went my way a lot out there. Justin Rose had a 25-foot birdie putt for the lead, ran it 5 feet by the cup and three-putted for a bogey for a 68. Kevin Chappell had a two-shot lead through 10 holes, only to play the next seven holes in 7-over par to close with a 76. Tiger Woods suffered a back spasm on the par-5 13th hole and hooked a fairway metal so far left that it landed in a swamp on the other side of the 15th fairway, leading to bogey. He dropped another shot on the 15th, and then gamely birdied the 16th and 17th holes to pull within one shot of Scott. Woods putt from the back of the 18th green was one turn short of falling to force a playoff. The last challenge came from Gary Woodland, who fell out of the lead when he hit driver on the 13th that ran into the water, leading to bogey. Woodland had birdie chances from inside 10 feet on the final three holes, and missed them all. He closed with a 73. I found a way to hang in there and grind it out and gave myself a chance on the back nine on Sunday, which is everything you can ask for, Woodland said. Scott finished at 11-under 273 and moved to a career-best No. 2 in the world. It was the second time Woods has missed a playoff by one shot at Liberty National. Woods, Woodland and Rose shared second place with Graham DeLaet of Canada, whose 65 matched the low score of the final round. DeLaet will move up to No. 9 in the Presidents Cup standings, and with one week before qualifying ends, is in good shape to make the International team. Woods had all four rounds in the 60s for the first time in a year on the PGA Tour, though it wasnt enough. He battled stiffness in his lower back all week, which he attributed to a soft bed in his hotel room the second straight year he has had back issues from a mattress at this event. In a brief interview with CBS Sports, he said it was hypothetical when asked if he would compete in the Deutsche Bank Championship, the next playoff event that starts Friday on the TPC Boston.

Woods already missed the AT&T National this year, which also benefits his foundation. I just got off and Im not feeling my best right now, he said. Rose was feeling that great, either. He was in position to win the tournament with a birdie putt, and the U.S. Open champion did not want to leave it short. Instead, he knocked it by farther than he imagined, the ball stayed on the high side of the cup the whole way. I got too aggressive, Rose said. I thought it was a putt to win the tournament. Its tough to take. Scott won for the second time this year, and at least put himself into the conversation for PGA Tour player of the year if he were to go on to win the FedEx Cup. He is No. 2 in the standings behind Woods, though the $10 million prize does not come into view until the Tour Championship. The first playoff event was packed with plenty of energy on a spectacular day across from the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. Five players had at least a share of the lead at some point in the final round. Woods put up a great fight despite his back injury. Scott played the final 24 holes without a bogey. Sunday also had some of the emotions found at Q-school for players whose season came to an abrupt end. And it was just as wild at the bottom. Only the top 100 players in the FedEx Cup advance to the second playoff event next week outside Boston. Geoff Ogilvy could have joined them except for missing a 2 1/2-foot par putt on the final hole that ultimately knocked him out of the top 100. Camilo Villegas, at No. 110, thought he needed a 6-foot par putt on the last hole to advance. He missed it and was visibly angry. More than an hour later, Aaron Baddeley appeared to be a lock to advance to Boston despite being at No. 119. Baddeley, however, bogeyed his last three holes, missing a 5-foot par putt on the 18th. That knocked him out and put Villegas back in at No. 100. Scott didnt miss anything. He made three straight birdies on the front nine, got into the mix with a 10-foot birdie on the 14th, and then chose to lay up with an iron on the 16th hole, which played about 290 yards. He holed a 15-foot birdie putt to tie for the lead, never realizing he would be there by himself when it was over. He was on the practice range, looking at a video board of Woodlands last birdie attempt, when he saw the miss. It was a good charge, but obviously I got a lot of luck, the guys struggled coming in, Scott said. Ive been in their position, too.

The 16-year-old New Zealand amateur successfully defend her title Sunday, closing with a 6-under 64 on Sunday at Royal Mayfair for a five-stroke victory and her fourth win in professional events. Last year at Vancouver Golf Club in British Columbia, the South Korean-born Ko became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months, 2 days. She also was the fifth amateur winner in tour history and the first since JoAnne Carner in the 1969 Burdines Invitational. Kos other victories in professional events came last year in the Australian tours New South Wales Open and this year in the Ladies European Tours New Zealand Womens Open. Ko had a 15-under 265 total after opening with rounds of 65, 69 and 67. Shes projected to jump from 19th to seventh in the world ranking. A stroke behind Caroline Hedwall entering the final round, Ko birdied five of the first eight holes and reached 15 under with a birdie on the par-4 12th. She dropped a stroke on the par-4 13th, parred the next four and closed with a birdie on the par-4 18th. Frances Karine Icher was second after a 67. Hedwall, the Swede coming off a record 5-0 performance last week in Colorado in the Solheim Cup in Europes blowout victory over the United States, had a 71 to tie for third at 9 under with Brittany Lincicome (69). Ko has played 14 LPGA Tour events the last two seasons, making the cut in every tournament. She also won the U.S. Womens Amateur last summer.Fleetwood wins Johnnie Walker ChampionshipGLENEAGLES, Scotland Tommy Fleetwood of England birdied the first playoff hole Sunday at the Johnnie Walker Championship to earn his first European Tour victory. Fleetwood also birdied the 18th to finish his round with a 70 and set up a threeway playoff with Scotlands Stephen Gallacher (67) and Argentinas Ricardo Gonzalez (70) after all three finished at 18-under 270 on the PGA Centenary course. Playing the par-5 18th again, Fleetwood narrowly missed an eagle putt from the fringe and then rolled in a three-footer for the win. Gallacher and Gonzalez both made par. Gallacher overcame a triple-bogey 7 on the 11th hole with a round that included five birdies and two eagles including one on the 18th to make the playoff. Its just unbelievable as its been a lifetime goal to win on the European Tour, Fleetwood said. Im sure there will be bigger and better goals in my career but this feels absolutely amazing right now. Fleetwood went into the final round of his 50th Tour event sharing the lead on 16-under with Gonzalez but slipped well off the pace to be 1 over for his round through 15 holes. However, he then eagled the 16th and birdied the last. Fleetwood was watched by his parents and ailing 14-year old dog, Maisy. She was diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks ago, Fleetwood said. So given her condition, this week is pretty special. Gallacher made a triple bogey at the 11th hole but then made up four shots in his closing five holes, including grabbing an eagle at the last. The 43-year old Gonzalo was looking to end a fouryear winless drought.From wire reports Associated PressSNOQUALMIE, Wash. John Riegger won the Boeing Classic on Sunday in his fifth Champions Tour start, holding off John Cook and Fred Couples at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. The 50-year-old Riegger birdied three of the final four holes holing a 20footer for birdie on the par-5 18th for a 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory over Cook. Riegger finished at 15-under 201. Cook closed with a 65.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE the London Olympics, last years U.S. Open and this years Australian Open. I feel more comfortable now than six months ago, thats for sure, Nadal said, then quickly added: But I still have pain some days. He was asked whether he thinks that might be the case for the rest of his career. Hopefully not, the 27-year-old Nadal said. Hopefully not. Hard courts could exacerbate the matter because of the pounding legs take on the unforgiving surface. Nadal himself maintains that there should be more tournaments played on other kinds of courts. Yet hes been successful everywhere, winning the Australian Open and U.S. Open once each, along with Wimbledon twice, to go along with his record eight championships on the slower red clay of the French Open. Nadal is 15-0 on hard courts in 2013, with his current run of victories built en route to titles at Montreal and Cincinnati. Hes on a great streak right now. Hes playing fantastic tennis. Hes playing as well as anyone in the world right now, said the 21-year-old Harrison, who will be making his Arthur Ashe Stadium debut against the tournaments 2010 champion. So Im going to have to bring a really high level out. Nadals rivals at the top of the game have taken note, too, of course. Summed up defending champion Andy Murray: Hes going to be very difficult to beat here. Top-seeded Novak Djokovic, who won the 2011 U.S. Open, said: Nadal is definitely back, and hes playing maybe the best tennis that he ever has played on hard courts. ... He seems like he changed a little bit the game. He stepped in a little bit more. He knows that now he has to be a bit more aggressive than he usually is because of, I guess, his knees and everything and because hard court is not clay. Its not his favorite surface; its faster. Im sure he worked on that. Nadal agreed with that assessment: He is making an effort to hit balls earlier than he used to. He is trying to be more aggressive. Im clearly very impressed, especially seeing him play really well on the quicker hard courts. ... Hes someone to be reckoned with. There were a lot of question marks when he came back. Especially, people thought he was just going to play on the clay courts, or most of it, and just some hard courts, said Federer, the champion in New York every year from 2004-08. Hes playing a full schedule, Federer said, and hes had an incredible season so far. All told, Nadal is 53-3 with a tourleading nine titles, more than twice as many as any other man. He reached the final at 11 of the 12 tournaments he entered.

MONDAY, AUGUST26, 2013 B5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Jack Benny said, Its not so much knowing when to speak, as when to pause. At the bridge table, its often not so much knowing when to play, as when to pause for thought. That applies in particular at trick one. The more thinking at trick one, the better you will play, whether you are the declarer or a defender. In todays deal, how should South play in five hearts after West leads the diamond king? The bidding was short but exciting. Easts four-spade opening bid would have usually been based on an eight-card suit, but was understandable since he was nonvulnerable. However, South had an easy five-heart overcall. West wondered about six diamonds, but knew it would be a wild action. (Six diamonds doubled can be defeated by seven tricks, minus 1,700.) Now to this difficult declarer-play problem. Given the opening lead, South has only 10 top tricks: seven hearts, one diamond and two clubs. Yes, the club jack might drop singleton or doubleton, but that is unlikely. And assuming it does not appear, how can declarer possibly get home? There is one chance: South must find West with the club jack. And, even harder to realize, declarer must not win the first trick. Lets assume West continues with the diamond queen. South ruffs in his hand, draws trumps, cashes the club ace, and overtakes the club queen with dummys king. Then he continues with the club 10, pitching a spade from his hand. West takes the trick, but must give the lead back to the dummy and allow declarer to discard his last two spades.

They are not particularly close, but we socialize on holidays. Bart has two daughters, a 20-year-old and a 7-year-old, both living at home in their small town. The family has lived a fairly isolated life. Bart is a pessimistic, rather unhappy and very self-absorbed guy. His wife is quiet and antisocial. My mother-in-law helps them financially and has always been available as a babysitter. My husband and I are concerned about the older daughter, Laurie. She has written very specific narratives on Facebook that have caused alarm. Laurie says she was constantly bullied as a child and recounted times when her father slapped her so hard, her nose bled and she urinated on herself. She says her ex-boyfriend was abusive, and she has attempted suicide eight times. Knowing that a minister lives next door to them, we called and asked for advice. Sadly, he stated that he is afraid to confront Bart because of his quick temper and fear of further reprisals against Laurie. He said the family is quite isolated, no one visits, and they dont see other people socially. My daughter contacted Facebook, and they left resources and the number of a suicide hotline for Laurie. She attends college, and Im sure there are counseling services there. What else can we do? Worried Aunt Dear Aunt: Laurie is fortunate to have family members who care so much about her welfare. It is difficult to assess what is true in a Facebook narrative. Laurie can post whatever she likes, and there is no way to confirm it. However, based on the ministers comments and Lauries isolated family life, it is better to err on the side of protecting her. She has been given resources through Facebook. She has counselors available at college. You also could contact her privately and let her know she can come to you if she needs help. If you believe there is ongoing physical abuse, urge her to call the Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800-799-SAFE. Dear Annie: I often babysit my 3-year-old granddaughter. She recently has developed allergies, and they suspect one trigger is my dog. Her family has a dog that stays outside. Mine is an indoor pet. My granddaughter loves the dogs. Before my granddaughter visits, I vacuum, clean, dust and put my dog in a separate room. I do not have any carpeting. The allergic reaction doesnt occur every time she visits, but Im getting the impression that her parents want me to get rid of my dog. My dog is part of the family, and I cannot see doing this. But I also dont like seeing my granddaughter suffer. What should I do? Torn Grandma Dear Torn: We know you are doing your best to keep your home dander-free for your grandchild, but its difficult to achieve that goal. Ask the parents whether you can go with them to the girls next pediatrician appointment and discuss your options. The doctor may offer alternatives that will allow you to keep your beloved animal. Dear Annie: I felt the need to respond to Disgusted Parent, whose sons teacher accused him of plagiarism. I am a middle school language arts teacher. As part of our curriculum, especially now that we have adopted the Common Core Standards, I teach my seventh graders the difference between what is and is not plagiarism. I teach them to remember that when in doubt, cite it! In spite of what Disgusted Parent said, the majority of teachers do indeed teach their students how to think, read and write. I also require them to support their thinking in their writing. If this young man used someone elses information, even if he put it in his own words, he still must cite the source Nash County, N.C.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Associated PressBRISTOL, Tenn. Matt Kenseth had old tires, a sputtering gas tank and Kasey Kahne in his rearview mirror in the closing laps of a race for the third time this season. The result was the same as it was in Las Vegas, same as it was in Kansas. Kenseth won again. He held off Kahne on Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway the third time this season the two have gone 1-2 to reclaim some of the momentum that had escaped Kenseth of late. A strong start to the season had given Kenseth three wins in his first 11 races with Joe Gibbs Racing, and win number four came six weeks later. But hed been in a slump of sorts heading into Bristol, with four finishes in the last six weeks of 15th or worse. The strong start followed by a mini-slump has made the year feel very choppy for Kenseth, who now has a Sprint Cup Series best five victories. I think if you look at the beginning of the season, I think it was better than I ever could have dreamed of, Kenseth said. We were qualifying up front every week, we were leading tons of laps in position to win races. Sitting here in August, it feels like the year has been two years long with all the different things weve had happen to our race team. The last month and a half, two months has been, I hate to say reality check because I hope this is reality all the time, but weve struggled just a little bit more, havent quite had the speed. Its been a little bit more of a struggle. It didnt seem like a struggle Saturday night as Kenseth led a race-high 149 laps then held off Kahne over a white-knuckled push to the checkered flag. Kahne first chased down Juan Pablo Montoya for second place, passing him with 17 laps to go before setting his sights on Kenseth. Although Kahne, winner of the spring race at Bristol, has two wins on the season, his place in the 12-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field isnt a lock and a win Saturday night would have cemented his berth. So he stalked Kenseth, who inadvertently wrecked him at Watkins Glen earlier this month to send Kahne over the edge. It was the fourth time this season a JGR driver had wrecked Kahne Kyle Busch was the villain three previous times and Kahne posted on Twitter he was headed to JGR headquarters to speak to whomever would come outside. Now with a chance to right all those wrongs in front of him, he stalked Kenseth for at least a dozen laps around Bristol. Whatever happened was out of Kenseths control. It was all about the windshield. I never even looked back, he said. The thing is, you cant race any different. If someone decides to run into the back of you or whatever, its going to happen. There wasnt really anything I could do differently to guard against anything or change my line or take his away because there was only one lane where my car ran good, so I just really had to look out the windshield and try to hit the marks the best I could. There wasnt a lot of extra room there, it was an intense race. Kasey has got a great reputation. Hes a really hard racer, really talented, and hes also a really fair racer, as well. I was expecting it to be about like it was, but I really thought he was going to pass me. I thought he had a good enough car to get around me there and we had just enough to hang on. In the end, Kahne raced by the book, did nothing dirty and wound up second. He wasnt very happy with himself, either. I was trying to get there, said Kahne. I would have wrecked probably both of us. It would have just been a wreck. I just tried to pass him as clean as I could, and race him as hard as I could. I thought I had him at one point. I had a good run. I tried to slide across him, but he just kept position. We were rubbing all the way down turn four. I just didnt clear him. I just didnt get it done and Im upset with myself for not figuring out how to win because I clearly had a better car at the end of the race. It was Kenseth who got the win, plus the bonus points for Chase seeding, and as it stands now hed be the top seed over five-time champion Jimmie Johnson when the Chase begins Sept. 15 at Chicago. Even if Kahne had pulled out the win, Kenseth still would have felt pretty good about his championship chances based on his Bristol performance. Im not always a huge believer in momentum as far as just looking at paper and looking at finishes, but I am a believer in momentum as far as performance, he said. I think this weekend was huge for us. Even if we would have ran second and got beat at the end, I think it would have been a very encouraging weekend. It would have been a shot in our arm, like man, we had all our speed back. We led some laps. The next 12 weeks are the most important 12 weeks of the season.AUTORACINGCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, AUGUST26, 2013 B7 Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: email@example.com l website: www.chronicleonline.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time699186 000FBZ6 000FBYV PLUMBERS WANTEDMust have valid Drivers License Apply at: 4079 S.
