Kerry, speaking to reporters at the State Department, said last weeks attack should shock the conscience of the world. The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable and despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured it is undeniable, said Kerry, the highest-ranking U.S. official to confirm the attack in the Damascus suburbs that activists say killed hundreds of people. This international norm cannot be violated without consequences, he added. Officials said President Barack Obama has not decided how to respond to the use of deadly gases, a move the White House said last year would cross a red line. But the U.S., along with allies in MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleGospel Island resident Ricky Willis sits back and relaxes on a recent Tuesday morning on the shores of Little Lake Henderson in Inverness.

During an informational hearing Monday, attorney Mark Herdman requested the board to abstain from the hearing of his client Beth Stone because of a story published in Sundays Chronicle.Stone a third-grade teacher was suspended without pay in June as a member of the instructional staff for allegedly providing misleading information regarding Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) results, according to a school investigation report. What I am comfortable with is moving this to an administrative law of action that knows nothing about this, Herdman said. Attorney Bruce Carney, who represented the school board in the hearing, said he did not read the published article; however, the relinquishing of the hearing was dependent on the board members prior knowledge of the case. His argument was more of a fundamental fairness, Carney said to the board members. If you were to deny his motion, you would go through the process of the hearing. You may have to go back and redo it, if an appellant court says because someone may have read it and had an opinion about it.

Foundation votes for cooperation MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS The two sides in the Citrus Memorial hospital dispute are halfway to an agreement that sets a firm date for choosing a bidder for the hospitals sale or lease. The Citrus Memorial Health Foundation voted unanimously Monday night on a resolution of cooperation with the Citrus County Hospital Board aimed at delaying the hospitals default on a $5.6 million SunTrust Bank loan. At the same time, the resolution sets a Sept. 26 deadline for both the foundation and hospital board to agree on a bidder and transaction type. The board of trustees meets at 5:15 p.m. Thursday and is expected to ratify the resolution, CCHB attorney Bill Grant said. Four companies Hospital Corp. of America (HCA), Heath Management Associates (HMA), RegionalCare Hospital Partners and Tampa General Hospital have bid to buy or lease Citrus Memorial. Tampa General had suggested an affiliation but its chief executive officer said last week that TGH would also consider a lease. Its uncertain whether all four are still in the running.

Its nothing unusual for press coverage, board member Pat Deutschman said. To me, it didnt have anything but basic details. It was appropriate for the press to receive the information, Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel said. School board attorney Wes Bradshaw, who represented Himmel for the hearing, said the concern was not about press coverage itself, but timing of the story being printed the day before the hearing. It is a matter of public record after a certain point in time, Bradshaw said. It was more about timing than it was coverage. But it was public record and the press is able to publish it. The matter will be heard before a state hearing officer. Her suspension and recommendation for dismissal resulted after Stone administered an additional STAR test to three students in order to increase their scores after their initial scores were lower than she expected, the investigation report stated. She later admitted to the re-testing, but insisted she wanted to see if the three students could score higher for her own curiosity. Stone has been on the instructional staff for the Citrus County School District since August 2006. Prior to her teaching career in Citrus County, Stone had 15 years of experience at three other schools, according to her personnel file which included no prior reprimands or disciplinary actions. HEARINGContinued from Page A1 Internal probe finds no fraud at BP claims center Associated PressNEW ORLEANS The head of security for the administrator of BPs multibillion-dollar settlement with Gulf Coast residents and businesses said an internal probe of alleged misconduct by an employee of a Mobile, Ala., claims center hasnt turned up any evidence of fraud. BP said it received a tip in July that someone who worked at the Mobile office helped people submit fraudulent claims in exchange for some of the settlement money. But David Welker, a former FBI supervisor who now works for court-supervised claims administrator Patrick Juneau, said in a letter dated Aug. 22 that his investigation found no evidence of fraud in any of the claims handled by the employee. BP cited the employees alleged misconduct in its Aug. 5 request for a federal judge to temporarily suspend all settlement payments. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier rejected a similar request by BP in July, but he hasnt ruled yet on the companys renewed bid to suspend payments. In a court filing Sunday, two of the plaintiffs attorneys who brokered the settlement with BP said the company hasnt presented any evidence that any claim was improperly calculated or paid. There is not even an argument, much less an evidentiary showing, to support the injunction of the entire settlement program, wrote the lawyers, Stephen Herman and James Roy. In his letter to a BP official, Welker said the Mobile employee accused of misconduct has helped 124 people. All of those claims were placed on hold. The employees mother filed a claim, but she denied any wrongdoing and withdrew it, Welker said. We have found no evidence to support the allegation of fraud pertaining to any of these claims, Welker wrote. In fact, we have learned that (the employee) referred 32 of these claimants for fraud review by the (settlement program), leading to the detection of a significant multi-claimant scheme. Europe, appeared to be laying the groundwork for the most aggressive response since Syrias civil war began more than two years ago. Two administration officials said the U.S. was expected to make public a more formal determination of chemical weapons use on Tuesday, with an announcement of Obamas response likely to follow quickly. The officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations. The international community appeared to be considering action that would punish Assad for deploying deadly gases, not sweeping measures aimed at ousting the Syrian leader or strengthening rebel forces. The focus of the internal debate underscores the scant international appetite for a large-scale deployment of forces in Syria and the limited number of other options that could significantly change the trajectory of the conflict. We continue to believe that theres no military solution here thats good for the Syrian people, and that the best path forward is a political solution, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said. This is about the violation of an international norm against the use of chemical weapons and how we should respond to that. The Obama administration was moving ahead even as a United Nations team already on the ground in Syria collected evidence from last weeks attack. The U.S. said Syrias delay in giving the inspectors access rendered their investigation meaningless and officials said the administration had its own intelligence confirming chemical weapons use. What is before us today is real and it is compelling, Kerry said. Our understanding of what has already happened in Syria is grounded in facts. The U.S. assessment is based in part on the number of reported victims, the symptoms of those injured or killed and witness accounts. Administration officials said the U.S. had additional intelligence confirming chemical weapons use and planned to make it public in the coming days. Officials stopped short of unequivocally stating that Assads government was behind the attack. But they said there was very little doubt that it originated with the regime, noting that Syrias rebel forces do not appear to have access to the countrys chemical weapons stockpile. Assad has denied launching a chemical attack. The U.N. team came under sniper fire Monday as it traveled to the site of the Aug. 21 attack. Its unclear whether Obama would seek authority from the U.N. or Congress before using force. The president has spoken frequently about his preference for taking military action only with international backing, but it is likely Russia and China would block U.S. efforts to authorize action through the U.N. Security Council.

SIDIBE Staff writerA couple who admitted to being awake for two days were arrested Friday and charged with methamphetamine production and use, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. John Michael Gancedo, 22, and Felicia Lynn Witfoth, 23, of Daphne Lane, Dunnellon, were charged with manufacturing meth with a child younger than 16 years old present in the residence and possession of drug paraphernalia. Gancedo faces an extra charge of possession of a listed chemical (hydrogen chloride, HCL) used in the manufacture of a controlled substance. Bond for Gancedo is $150,500 and bond for Witfoth is $100,500. Deputies responded to complaints about drug activity at the residence and were immediately greeted with the strong odor of chemicals as they began their search of the residence. The initial responding deputy then contacted the agency Tactical Impact Unit, which took over the investigation. According to the CCSO report, unit investigators were told by Gancedo and Witfoth where to find the ingredients used in the manufacture of meth, including lye, funnels, coffee filters and other chemicals. During his first interview with investigators, Gancedo reportedly said he was a helper during cook times for the meth and not the primary cook. However, when Witfoth was interviewed, she said Gancedo was the one who did the cooking in the far bathroom of the trailer they shared and that she would assist him by bringing chemicals and cold medicine to complete the process. She also reportedly admitted that a young child had been present in the house when the cooking was going on. Witfoth told investigators she and Gancedo had been awake for more than 48 hours because of their use of the drugs. Gancedo and Witfoth were arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or email@example.com.

He grew up in that house, as did his mother. Amidst the property he owns in Floral City, just north of the traffic light at 41 and Orange Avenue, sits Frog Holler, a garden center and antiques business owned by Lisa Jones. In back of that sits Frog Holler Pickin Parlor, a wooden stage venue that Bellot, Jones and other Floral City merchants hope will help stop the traffic from zooming past and get people to stay awhile and enjoy what Floral City has to offer. It started with a tiki bar, Bellot said. We sell tiki bars, and I had the tiki man build me a big tiki bar, he said, pointing to the covered wooden stage at the back of his property. We decided it would be a great place for bluegrass jams and people coming in to play old country music. Its a bring your own cooler and chairs venue, he said. Well have hot dogs and drinks, weve got animals for the kids, theres plenty of parking and a little bonfire going for the liars club, Bellot said. Were down-home country here. Bellot, Jones and a friend from Inverness, Dave Neihofs, envisioned using the stage to host concerts, open-mike events, fundraising events and local political campaign events. Last election, we had two or three big parties out back here, and every one of them got elected but one, Bellot said. On Saturday, more than 100 people came out to a practice opening with the Moon Shine Creek Band playing bluegrass. We lasted a couple hours before it started raining, Neihofs said Monday. But we were pleased. Saturdays event was practice for the venues grand opening scheduled to coincide with the Floral City Merchants Association annual Bikes & BBQ event Oct. 4 and 5. Were going to do a big fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, Neihofs said. He added that theyre looking for bluegrass and country musicians who want to play at the Holler, also clogging groups who want to dance. The reason Im doing this is for Floral City, Bellot said. I want to give people down here something to do. Ive lived here all my life, and its been a quiet little community, and they need some entertainment.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Florida Public Service Commission has scheduled a two-day hearing in October on the revised Duke Energy settlement agreement, which effectively halts the proposed Levy County nuclear plant. The settlement was announced early this month and will affect the companys base electricity rates beginning January 2014. The other parties in the settlement are the Office of Public Counsel, representing Florida rate payers, the Florida Industrial Power Users Group, the Florida Retail Federation and White Springs Agricultural Chemicals. The revisions to the 2012 settlement agreement relate to the Crystal River nuclear plant costs, the insurance settlement, the proposed Levy project, the future of Crystal River units 1 and 2 and longrange electricity needs in Florida. Duke Energy also reaffirmed it is evaluating various sites including Citrus County, south of the Levy County site, for a new state-of-the-art, clean-burning natural gas-fired plant. The company has ruled out converting older coal burning plants CR 1 and 2 to natural gas. Duke spokesperson Sterling Ivy said that is not an option. He explained, both units are nearly 40 years old and reaching the end of their operational license. In addition, there would be safety and security issues with the ongoing decommissioning of CR3, putting a natural gas line so close to the nuclear plant. Despite Dukes shift on the Levy plant, the agreement will continue to allow the company to recover $350 million for project costs from ratepayers within five years. The remainder of the insurance settlement on CR3, $163 million, will be credited to customers through the fuel adjustment cost beginning in January. Duke requested the PSC defer its determination on nuclear cost recovery for CR3 and Levy project issues to 2014 and approve the revised settlement, continuing the nuclear charge on customer bills. The PSC hearing is set for Oct. 16 and 17.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.

Jon Gosselin accessed email, bank accounts and other private information for a book called Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, according to the federal lawsuit. The 2012 book was written by Jon Gosselins friend and business partner, tabloid writer Robert Hoffman, but pulled from the market after two days because the information had been illegally obtained, the lawsuit said. Jon violated a federal antihacking statute in order to publish salacious, scandalous and defamatory information about Kate, said her lawyer A. Jordan Rushie. Its damaged her reputation. The couple starred in the TLC show Jon & Kate plus 8, detailing life with their twins and sextuplets, before they separated in 2009 and later divorced.Career criminal banned from Brooklyn courtNEW YORK A career criminal who once stalked Friends star Jennifer Aniston has been banned from the Brooklyn federal courthouse for stalking a female judge. The Daily News said David Hester-Bey can only enter the building to file papers in civil cases until an evidence hearing in October.

A federal judge signed off Monday on a deal to dismiss a discrimination lawsuit against celebrity cook Paula Deen. A civil lawsuit accusing the former Food Network star and her brother of race discrimination and sexual harassment was officially dismissed when U.S. District Court Judge William T. Moore Jr. in Savannah approved a deal reached by attorneys in the case last week. The order closed the case with prejudice, meaning former Deen employee Lisa Jackson cant sue again over the same issues. Both sides agreed to pay their own court costs and legal fees. No other terms of the deal were disclosed.

Associated PressNEW YORK Muriel Mickie Siebert, who started as a trainee on Wall Street and became the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, has died of complications of cancer at age 80. Siebert died Saturday at Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York. Her death was confirmed by Jane Macon, a director of Siebert Financial and a partner at the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright. Siebert was founder and president of brokerage firm that bears her name, Muriel Siebert & Co. Inc. The company went public in 1996 as Siebert Financial Corp. Macon said Siebert was a fabulous woman, a trailblazer and a pioneer who set a high standard for those who entered the financial world after her. She always pushed the doors open and kept them open for other people to follow. Siebert, who was born in Cleveland and moved to New York in 1954 at age 22, started her career as a trainee in research at Bache & Co. earning a $65 a week. She went on to become an industry specialist in airlines and aerospace and later became a partner at brokerages including Brimberg & Co. She bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange in December 1967 after months of struggling with the male-dominated business world that initially resisted her efforts to join. She established her investment firm the same year and transformed it into a discount brokerage house in 1975. Siebert took a leave of absence from the company in 1977 and placed it in a blind trust to be run by the employees when she was appointed the first woman superintendent of banking for the State of New York by Gov. Hugh Carey. She served five years. Siebert also is a former appointee to the New York State Commission on Judicial Nomination and the National Womens Business Council. Siebert, who lived in New York City, never married and did not have any children. Clinton Hurlstone, 96INVERNESSClinton T.

Schneider, 83, of Crystal River, Fla., and Minocqua, Wis., died Friday, Aug. 23, 2013, at his summer home in Minocqua. Herb was born Oct.10, 1929, to Herbert B. and Rose Schneider in Adams, Wis. He graduated from Adams-Friendship High School in 1947. Herb was inducted into the schools Athletic Hall of Fame on Oct.12, 2001. Herb was a three-sport athlete. He received honors in football, basketball and track. As the starting center, Schneider was named to the AllConference first team in 1947. After graduation, he spent two years in the Navy on the USS Coral Sea, but was called home to take care of his two orphaned brothers. Herb married Betty Mann in Arkdale, Wis., in 1951. They had two daughters, Pamalla and Cindy, and later two grandchildren, Herbie and Rose. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. Herb was always interested in law enforcement and loved nature. It was his dream in life to become a game warden. He was an Adams County game warden, a deputy sheriff and a member of the Wisconsin State Patrol before becoming a state warden in March 1958. He was soon assigned to Stevens Point and was known as C-165. He was transferred to Woodruff in April 1973 and worked there as a field warden until his retirement Oct. 1, 1983. He relished working in the field and chose to remain a field warden throughout his career despite chances for promotion. During his tenure at Stevens Point, Schneider became wellknown to the staff at the University for his expertise and assistance in developing their conservation studies. He spent endless hours tutoring students. Many of these students were inspired by Schneider and did become state conservation wardens. While at Stevens Point, Herb and William Bablitch, district attorney at the time, received a $1,500 reward for apprehending the slayers of elk at Jordan Park. They used the money to set up a scholarship fund for natural resource students. In February 1973, UW-SP College of Natural Resources named Schneider Outstanding Conservationist of the Year at its annual banquet. While at Woodruff, Herbs persistent monitoring of water and shoreline alteration permits led to protection for these valuable resources. He started a new chapter of the Izaak Walton League to help protect the bountiful resources surrounding the Woodruff-Minocqua area. His efforts did and will make a difference to those who enjoy the outdoors. After retirement, Herb and Betty spent the winters in Florida and summers in Minocqua. Herb enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He enjoyed reading, fishing, hunting and playing golf. While in Florida one winter in February, Herb had two holes-in-one in a two-week span. Herb is survived by his wife, Betty; daughters, Pamalla R. Schneider of Stevens Point and Cindy A. Cyra (Greg) of Minocqua; grandchildren, Herbert J. Coulthurst of Madison and Rose Schneider of Stevens Point; and brother, Robert Schneider of St. Petersburg. Herbs wishes were to be cremated. A memorial service will be at 11:30a.m. Friday, Aug.30, 2013, with visitation at 10:45a.m. at Calvary Lutheran Church, 8632 U.S. 51, Minocqua, WI 54548. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Betty Schneider, 7420 Golfway Court, Minocqua, WI 54548. A scholarship will be established in Herbs name for law enforcement at the UW-SP College of Natural Resources, and a memorial in Herbs name at the Calvary Lutheran Church. C-165 is 1042. The Schneider family would like to thank the Hospice staff, and the Oncology and Cardiology departments of the Marshfield Clinic for their care and compassion during Herbs illness.

LOUIS Richard Dick Thien, a veteran journalist who played a pivotal role in developingUSA Todayfor Gannett Co. Inc., has died. He was 73. Thien died Friday of natural causes at Missouri Baptist Hospital in suburban St. Louis, his son, Mark Thien, said Monday. Thien was a two-time cancer survivor.

The Associated Press named Thien one of the 12 best editors in the country in 1986. It was among many awards he won in a career that spanned more than four decades. Thien grew up in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 1963. He was a first lieutenant in the Army in the 1960s.

Teco power plant project gets thumbs upAn administrative law judge has recommended that Gov. Rick Scott and the state Cabinet approve a plan by Tampa Electric Co. to upgrade and expand the capacity of the Polk Power Station. Judge Bram D.E. Canter on Friday issued a 35-page recommended order, which is part of a process in which Scott and the Cabinet decide whether to certify such projects. Canters recommendation said some residents expressed concerns about transmission lines related to the project, but he wrote that it should be approved. The project would provide additional clean and reliable energy, additional jobs during construction, an increased property tax base, and increased economic activity in the form of purchases of goods and services, the recommended order said. The Polk Power Station is in southwest Polk County, near the Hillsborough County line. The project involves converting four generating units at the site to what are known as combined cycle units, which would improve efficiency in producing electricity and boost the output of the plant. Canters recommendation said construction is expected to start in January 2014.Adkins to host meetings on sex offender lawsAmid questions about the effectiveness of Floridas sexoffender laws, Rep. Janet Adkins, R-Fernandina Beach, has scheduled a meeting next week in Jacksonville to address the issue. The SunSentinel of South Florida has run a series of stories this month indicating the state has repeatedly failed to stop sex offenders from committing additional attacks. Also, the state has been rocked by high-profile incidents such as the murder this summer in Jacksonville of 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle, who was abducted by a sex offender, authorities say. Adkins has scheduled the hearing for 2 p.m. Sept. 4.Report: State still grappling with income issuesWhile Gov. Rick Scott travels the state touting job growth and an unemployment rate below the national average, a report released last week by state analysts points to some continuing economic problems such as a lack of income growth and persistent home foreclosures. Florida had a 1.5 percent decline in personal income during the first quarter of 2013, compared to the last quarter of 2012. The report, posted online by the Legislatures Office of Economic and Demographic Research, said housing is generally improving but that Florida had the highest foreclosure rate in the country in July 2013. Also, the report noted that while the states unemployment rate dropped from 9.4 percent in December 2011 to 7.1 percent in July 2013, a large part of that drop 47.8 percent stemmed from people dropping out of the labor force or delaying entry to the labor force.

Mike Fasano, a New Port Richey Republican who was appointed this month as Pasco County tax collector.

The Republicans are Bill Gunter of New Port Richey, Jeromy Harding of New Port Richey and James Mathieu of Port Richey, according to the state Division of Elections website. The Democrat is Amanda Murphy of New Port Richey. Qualifying will end at noon Tuesday. A primary will be held Sept. 17, and the special general election is scheduled for Oct. 15.Smith proposes neighborhood watch changesSenate Minority Leader Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, has filed a measure that would prohibit neighborhood crime-watch participants from confronting or attempting to apprehend potentially questionable individuals. The bill (SB 122) also would prohibit people from using the states controversial stand your ground law as a defense if they leave places of safety to initiate confrontations. It also would require law enforcement to issue reasonable guidelines for the operation of neighborhood crime-watch programs. Smiths proposal comes in the wake of the July 13 acquittal of Sanford resident George Zimmerman, a neighborhoodwatch volunteer, in the February 2012 shooting of teen Trayvon Martin. It was initially up to the Sanford police to decide whether Zimmerman would go free under stand your ground, and no charges were brought for weeks after the shooting. However, calls for an arrest grew, especially after the release of a 911 tape in which a police dispatcher told Zimmerman not to track Martins movements. While Zimmermans attorney didnt raise the stand-your-ground law as a defense, the jury instructions advised that Zimmerman could be acquitted if jurors deemed he wasnt engaged in an unlawful activity as he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force.

Memory care Short term and long term stays decided whether to reconsider. The foundation narrowed its choice to Tampa General or HCA. Both companies are scheduled to make presentations at a joint meeting of the foundation and hospital board either Sept. 16 or Sept. 18. Along with setting a deadline to choose a bidder, hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty said he believes the resolution will be enough to hold SunTrust Bank off from calling in its loan on April 2, as it is now scheduled to do. The loan will be in default Oct. 1 because the hospital is not meeting the bond covenant of having at least 65 operational days of cash on hand. The hospital has about 41 days cash on hand and will have about 45 days at the end of September, finance officer Mark Williams said. Beaty and Williams had earlier considered taking out another loan to pay the SunTrust bond and give the hospital enough cash on hand to satisfy the 65day covenant of an $8.3 million bond with Compass Bank. The cooperative agreement eliminates pursuing another loan. A default would trigger the hospital boards taking over the hospital from the foundation, according to the lease. The resolution requires both banks to agree to delay any default action to give time for both boards to select and negotiate with a new hospital owner or lease-holder.

For the RECORD Associated PressCLEARWATER Teachers, school officials, politicians and other education leaders on Monday kicked off a three-day summit in hopes of reaching a consensus on the next round of changes for Floridas public schools. It was clear even from the beginning that there remains a wide gulf and even some distrust about what changes should be made to the states education standards and its well-known A-to-F school grading system. Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for the hastily-arranged summit following a summer that included the abrupt resignation of Education Commissioner Tony Bennett and a backlash over the states current grading system. It comes nearly a year after the Republican governor embarked on a listening tour where he personally visited schools. The summit also comes when the state is the middle of a huge transition to a new set of standards and potentially a new high-stakes test to replace the current Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Interim Education Commissioner Pam Stewart repeatedly said that the summit was an opportunity for state officials to listen to others involved in education and create a plan for the future. I think we are focused on moving the bar forward, Stewart said. There are some things that we want to take a closer look at and make sure that we are on the right track. But Miami-Dade Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said that state officials need to fix problems with the states current system of ranking and evaluating schools before they move to new standards. We need to recognize at some point this became a runaway train that needs to get back on track, Carvalho said. I think at this point theres a great deal of skepticism across the state as to what the validity and reliability of our accountability system really is. And we have an opportunity to fix it. Summit kicks off amid distrust about schools
Orders for long-lasting US factory goods plungeWASHINGTON Orders for long-lasting U.S. factory goods fell sharply last month as demand for commercial aircraft plummeted and businesses spent less on computers and electrical equipment. Orders for durable goods plunged 7.3 percent in July, the Commerce Department said Monday. Its the steepest drop in nearly a year. Excluding the volatile transportation category, orders fell just 0.6 percent. Both declines followed three straight months of increases. Core capital goods fell 3.3 percent. These are considered a good measure of businesses confidence in the economy and include machinery, computers and heavy trucks, while excluding volatile aircraft and defense. The drop followed four straight months of gains. The drop suggests the third quarter is off to a weaker start than some had hoped.Treasury says US will hit debt limit in mid-Oct.WASHINGTON Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is telling Congress that the U.S. government will hit its borrowing limit in midOctober and urged lawmakers to reach a budget deal before then. Lew said in a letter to Speaker John Boehner that the government is running out of accounting maneuvers it has used to avoid hitting the $16.7 trillion borrowing limit. He pressed Congress to raise the borrowing limit before then so Treasury can keep paying the governments bills. Earlier this year, Congress temporarily suspended the borrowing limit so lawmakers could focus on other budget debates. Treasury has kept the government operating for several months through its bookkeeping maneuvers. A smaller deficit this year has also helped.Penneys largest investor to sell entire stakeNEW YORK J.C. Penneys largest investor and former board member, William Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management, is selling his nearly 18 percent stake in the company. The move to sell 39.1 million shares of the company, announced in a regulatory filing, comes two weeks after Ackman resigned from J.C. Penneys board. The planned sale comes as Penney is trying to recover from a botched up transformation plan that was spearheaded by its former CEO Ron Johnson and resulted in disastrous results. The news sent shares down nearly 3 percent to $12.99 per share in after hours-trading after closing down 15 cents to $13.35 in the regular session.Economists: Future deficits top US fiscal problemNEW YORK The biggest fiscal challenge facing the U.S. is the size of projected deficits in the 2020s and 2030s, according to a survey of business economists. The National Association for Business Economics surveyed 220 of its members in July and August. The survey found that members were more concerned about the size of deficits in the next two decades than current deficits or deficits over the next 10 years: 43 percent of the economists named budget gaps in the 2020s and 2030s as the top fiscal challenge, compared with 37 percent who chose projected deficits over the next 10 years.

Secretary of State John Kerry said there was undeniable evidence of a large-scale chemical weapons attack in Syria last week, and his remarks suggested that the administration was edging closer to a military response. Major indexes had been holding onto slight gains on Monday until the last hour of trading. Thats when Kerrys televised talk appeared to jolt it lower, said Stephen J. Carl, head equity trader at the Williams Capital Group. The S&P 500 index ended with a loss of 6.72 points, or 0.4 percent, at 1,656.78. The index was up two points just before Kerry began reading his statement. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 64.05 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 14,946.46. The Nasdaq composite slipped 0.22 of a point, or 0.01 percent, to 3,657.57. A handful of corporate deals gave the market a lift in the early going. Amgen surged following its announcement late Sunday that the biotech giant plans to buy Onyx Pharmaceuticals for $10.4 billion. The acquisition would give Amgen three approved cancer treatments and several other potential drugs. In economic news, the government reported that orders for long-lasting manufactured goods plunged 7.3 percent last month, the steepest drop in nearly a year. Demand for commercial aircraft sank and businesses spent less on computers and electrical equipment. Jack Ablin, the chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank in Chicago, said its likely investors are looking past the one bad economic report because so many major events loom ahead. The Federal Reserve will start a two-day meeting Sept. 17, during which officials will discuss phasing out support for the economy. After that, Germany holds national elections that could change how the region handles rescue loans for troubled countries. Stocks down after Kerrys Syria remarks BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
If you think all things having to do with health insurance are confusing now, just wait until Oct. 1. Thats opening day for insurance enrollment in the new health care marketplace (also called health care exchange) mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Florida is one of the states that declined to set up its own marketplace, instead handing the responsibility back to the federal government. In anticipation of open enrollment, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded grant monies in Florida to crank up a navigator program, intended to help people shop for and obtain health insurance in the marketplace. The University of South Florida recently received a $4.2 million grant, the largest in Florida. USF will work with 10 partner organizations, covering all but three southeast Florida counties, deploying trained navigators throughout communities to help educate people about insurance options and how to obtain coverage. Using these navigators is optional. Enrollment will be available individually online for those who are comfortable using the computerbased tools and application. HHS representatives have said that these counselors must complete at least 20 hours of training before they start working with consumers, and must comply with privacy and security standards. They point out that those who use navigators will have eligibility verified in the same manner as applicants to other government programs. Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi have raised objections to how the navigator program is being implemented. They say that training was cut from 30 hours to 20 in the rush to get ready for October, and there are doubts on whether safeguards are in place to protect personal financial information. Bondi is leading a group that includes 12 other Republican state attorneys general, asking HHS to require standardized background screenings for navigators. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DWeston, also the Democratic National Committee Chair, blasted Scott and Bondi for hypocrisy. She pointed out that had Florida chosen to set up a state-based exchange, Florida would be in a position to dictate how the navigators are trained and deployed. But it didnt. Political sniping aside and it should be put aside there are real concerns with the health care marketplace processes. First, we can all agree that massive online registration programs are bound to experience glitches. Count on it. And a bad experience trying to go it alone may drive people to seek the help of a navigator. Second, we already know that information security is something to strive for, but it cannot be guaranteed. We have heard more than just a few times about hackers getting into computerized records of banks, retailers, financial services firms and government records. We already give plenty of private information to people in order to obtain services we want or need. It will be the same with this program and these navigators. Government at all levels must do everything it can to support the integrity of the health care marketplace program, and protect citizens and their private information. If that takes more training, do it. If it takes stricter background checking, do it. If it takes special certification programs, do it. Whatever it takes, do it. The citizens who so deeply need health care insurance deserve the smoothest, safest process possible. HEALTH CARE MARKETPLACE BYDOUGLASCOHN ANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONThe summer is coming to a close, and no single issue has taken hold of the town hall meetings that members of Congress traditionally host when theyre back home in their districts. In part, thats because the politicians arent all that eager to have these open-ended, unscripted exchanges with constituents. Democrats are under fire from the left for the administrations over-reach in its collection of meta-data, and Republicans are facing demands that they shut down the government as means of defunding Obamacare. Republicans are having the harder time of it because they campaigned on repealing Obamacare, and they led constituents to believe that it would be possible to repeal and replace the law they hate so much. Now they are ducking the issue. Just a dozen senators signed a letter to Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., saying they would not back a continuing resolution to fund the government if it includes money for the implementation of Obamacare. Republican leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who is facing a primary challenge from a wellfunded Tea Party candidate, has so far refused to say whether he would back a government shut-down. On the campaign trail this August, liberal groups have been trailing conservatives and taking every opportunity that arises to present the other side. The law prohibits insurance companies from refusing coverage to people who have a pre-existing condition; it eliminates the lifetime caps that people with chronic conditions face when they battle serious illness for a long time, and it lets young people up until the age of 26 stay on their parents policy. When the insurance exchanges mandated by the law go into effect on October 1, people will be able to shop online for the policy best suited to their needs, just as they do for other consumer-friendly services. Whats not to like? Republicans say Obamacare means more government and more bureaucracy, and thats why they are opposed. House Republicans have voted 40 times to repeal the law, knowing full well each time that it is a fruitless exercise. If it passed the House on a party-line vote, it would stall in the Democratic-led Senate. Even if it managed somehow to pass the Senate, there is no way President Obama would sign into law legislation that repeals his signature achievement. It is a non-starter, period. So why then do Republicans persist? The short answer is theyve been doing it so long, they dont know what else to do. Its reflexive, and theyve got the repeal part down. Where they have failed is the second half of their repeal and replace mantra. They havent offered anything that would take the place of Obamacare should they succeed in dismantling the Affordable Care Act. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., in his new role as co-host of CNNs remake of its venerable show, Crossfire, has been chiding his party to come up with ideas about what Republicans would do should they succeed in regaining power. Its the challenge they face on every issue. Having President Obama in the White House has been a convenient foil, letting them off easy when it comes to offering an agenda that would serve as a road map should they recapture the Senate next year, or the White House in 2016. The assumption is that the Republicans are not stupid enough to shut down the government over Obamacare, but other epic fights lay ahead. The debt ceiling must be raised again for the government to pay its bills, and the spending cuts mandated by sequester extended, modified or lifted. Summer will soon become fall, and the politicians will be back in Washington. Will they perform knowing the consequences for the economy, and for their constituents? Dont bet on it. Just saying, No, isnt governing.

Dr. Declan Hagerty of Inverness Surgical Associates, Dr. William V. Harrer of Citrus Hematology and Oncology Center and Dr. Jean Patrick, ER doctor at Citrus Memorial hospital, went above and beyond what I have experienced with other doctors. When my brother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma this past Christmas Eve and he had no medical or health insurance, they worked hard to make sure he obtained the treatment he needed. He is now in remission, and I am eternally thankful to them and their staffs for their dedication, not only to their professions, but to their patients as well. We are blessed to have them in the midst of our community. Thank you!Phyllis Helt LecantoForever in memoryFriday night, I went to a wake in Lecanto. It was an experience I wont forget for a long time. The VFW was outside standing at attention and two at the door greeting. A very patriotic sight to see. Inside the line for seeing the family was out to the door. All seats were full and the lines were full. Almost every person was in black and hardly a dry eye in the room. To be thought of that much, he must have been a very special person. He will be remembered for a long time for the giving person he was. I hope we can treat people we know and meet while we are here to let them know God loves them. My prayers go out to the family.

The health care marketplace will be used by those currently uninsured or who are purchasing individual health insurance. Those covered by employer plans will not be affected. The numbers below identify only the uninsured in an area encompassing Citrus and Sumter counties. (Florida Public Use Microdata Area, or PUMA, No. 1201600). These data were provided by Enroll America, compiled from reports from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Total number of uninsured, from birth through age 64 38,379. That represents 26.3 percent of residents in the PUMA. The age breakdown: 18 or younger 9 percent 19 to 25 14 percent 26 to 34 17 percent Income ranges: 53 percent are at less than or equal to 138 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). They may be eligible for Medicaid or for shopping in the health care marketplace 41 percent are between 139 and 400 percent of FPL, and thus possibly eligible for federal subsidy assistance on purchasing insurance through the marketplace. 6 percent are at greater than 400 percent FPL; no subsidy is available. Source: http://www.enrollamerica.org/maps 35 to 54 45 percent 55 to 64 15 percent Just saying, No, isnt governing Not close to 30 percentIve been reading a lot about the tax increases and Im not nearly sharp as I used to be, but I know what 30 percent is and I know how much tax I paid last year. Let me tell you, somethings been wrong somewhere in these calculations. I suspect its been the effort to arouse people perhaps by the media. But when I look at my TRIM notice, my actual tax increase, if the budget adjustments are made, is closer to 3 percent than to 30 percent. And if those budget changes are not made, my taxes next year will actually be less. I may be the exception; I may be closer to the rule. All I know for sure is, I didnt get a 30 percent increase in my taxes. It wasnt anyplace close to being that much.Explain thisGot a (TRIM) document today in the mail stating This is not a bill. However, there was a detailed breakdown of taxes for 2014. Compared to last years real estate tax bill, this was 12 percent higher. Inflation is nowhere near 12 percent. Whats your excuse, county tax collector? Editors note:The tax collector doesnt set the tax rate. The local governments, such as county commission and school board, set the tax rate.What cutbacks?Hey, Sound Off, youre going to be busy tonight. I got my TRIM bill. They raised the market value of my home 35 percent. Didnt the Chronicle put out a thing about three months ago saying property values were down 3 percent across the county again? Every department got more money. Wheres the cutbacks? Every single department got more money and yet they swear theyre cutting back. I just dont know what to do.Pay attention to issueResponse to Sell hospital now, Aug. 15.

Sell the hospitalIm just calling to say I totally agree with all these articles, the ads, the fullpage ad on the back of the front page of Wednesdays paper (Aug. 7). We (the county) need to get rid of Citrus Memorial. The hospital board, the hospital foundation are wasting taxpayer money fighting each other. We dont need to be putting money into the bottomless pit like that. Lets find a buyer, sell the hospital and reduce the taxes on the people of Citrus County.Leave cats aloneThis is for the city council members, plus Bob Plaisted, Frank DiGiovanni and the city attorney on the feral cat problem. The cats should be able to live out their lives in Whispering Pines Park. Clarify gun lawThis call is in regards to todays editorial, Shooting law ignores local reality. I believe if you check and find out, no one is permitted to go out into the woods and shoot indiscriminately. Any and all shooting like this must be done on private property. So we could use a little clarity here, possibly someone could clarify this. Work out problemsSuggestion: How about (Charlie) Dean, (Jeff) Dawsy and the local politicians get together for the sake of us taxpayers, smoke the peace pipe, bury the hatchet and work on our tax problems. Step 1: Get rid of the hospital board. They are bleeding us dry for their egos. Save our hospital. Air potato killersWhen are we going to learn? We have an air potato vine problem in Florida, apparently. Theyre going to introduce the air potato beetle from Asia to eat those and they only eat those and then they believe theyll die when theyve eaten all the potato vines. Well, what if they dont? Weve got to quit introducing foreign animals and plant life to this state. Everything will grow here. If they start eating the orange leaves or grape leaves, what then? Stop introducing species that are not native to this state and if it turns out bad, whos in trouble?Nice articleI want to thank the Citrus Chronicle so much for the wonderful article they did on Dr. Carlos Gonzalez. He was truly a friend and a great man and the lifetime achievement article you did was just wonderful. Thank you so much.Everyone paysNot only homeowners pay the fire tax.

Excuse me already, but several years ago, I had already looked, and the 80-year lease the Citrus County Hospital Board agreed to with the Citrus County Hospital Foundation in 1990 had virtually no rental income it was a win-win for everyone except the taxpayers of Citrus County who did pay for the construction of the Citrus Memorial hospital and formed the Citrus County Hospital Board back in the 1940s, as described on the CCHB website, To operate the hospital system and provide medically necessary health care for all Citrus County residents, regardless of their ability to pay. The citizens of Citrus County have provided millions of dollars for indigent care and for the needs of the hospital during the years, along with significant legal expenses. In my letter I merely suggested the CCHB consider leasing the Citrus Memorial hospital meaning the county could collect real money on a permanent basis, not with the 80year lease that has been a charade, that for years has not even netted Monopoly money to the taxpayers. I have owned rental property and have found there is more income by renting than selling in the long run while retaining the value of ownership. In the case of CMH, the citizens would still have some control of our multimillion dollar investment by leasing. Quite possibly in a sale we would not receive a total return on the taxpayers investment with out-of-town wheelerdealers looking for a hospital bargain for their corporate coffers. Furthermore, I appreciate Mr. Sprotts advice, Quit worrying about the indigent and uninsured, Obamacare will take care of that. The county will be required to pay for indigent care with or without Obamacare, and how many people who could not afford to pay for its mandates will be knocking at CMH for medical care? Let us consider leasing CMH with a real return on taxpayers investment unless Donald Trump gives us an offer we cant refuse.Renee ChristopherMcPheeters Crystal RiverConfused by hospital articlesRe: Citrus Memorial hospital newspaper articles Mike Wright, July 29; my Aug. 6 Sound Off; staff report, Aug. 6. Personally, my knowledge of the Citrus Memorial hospital troubles concerning finances and legal issues is quite limited. Nonetheless, you and your well-informed staff could be very helpful when trying to inform me and probably most of your readers by being meticulously precise. (Some time ago I believe Mike Wright did try to define all the entities involved. I failed to keep that article.) Many of your articles confused me enough that I at times gave up trying to unravel the nuances. A recent example illustrates one type of imprecision found in your articles. In the story Mike Wright referred to the Citrus Memorial Health System spending money for legal fees while addressing the CCHB and CCHF (Citrus County Hospital Board and Health Foundation respectively). I called Sound Off and questioned what the Citrus Memorial Health System entity really was, i.e., the hospital? An editors note stated Citrus Memorial Health System owns the hospital, care clinics, and some test facilities such as at Allen Ridge. How Citrus Memorial Health System fits into CCHB and CCHF was not clear. Here is the main point about preciseness: A staff report article on Aug. 6, in paragraph one, talks of the sale of Citrus Memorial hospital. Then paragraph six states the Citrus County Hospital Board, CCHB, owns the hospital. So does CCHB own the Citrus Memorial Health System comprised of the hospital and the outlying facilities mentioned above? See what I mean about be precise? Does the system own the hospital? Does the board own the hospital? You have a can of worms to deal with and some limited space to try to cover all of the issues and entities involved. Still I urge you to try to be as precise as you can possibly be to help us readers. You never try to be confusing, but please keep in mind the lack of knowledge and familiarity of us poor readers.Sam Williams HomosassaMike Wrights note: Well ... it is confusing. Citrus Memorial Health System (CMHS) is the corporate name for Citrus Memorial hospital and other hospital-related properties, such as walk-in clinics and Allen Ridge medical complex. Citrus County Hospital Board (CCHB) is the hospital owner. However pay attention here CMHS has title to some properties, joint-ventures and equipment that the CCHB has no connection with. All the property, whether owned by CCHB or CMHS, is included in the transaction discussions. If this doesnt help, call me at 352-563-3228 or send an email to mwright @chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama bestowed the nations highest military honor, the Medal of Honor, on Army Staff Sgt. Ty Carter on Monday, saluting the veteran of the war in Afghanistan as the essence of true heroism, one still engaged in a battle against the lingering emotional fallout of war. Carter risked his life to save an injured soldier, resupply ammunition to his comrades and render first aid during intense fighting in a remote mountain outpost four years ago. As these soldiers and families will tell you, theyre a family forged in battle, and loss, and love, Obama said as Carter stood at his side and members of his unit watched in the White House East Room. Then as an Army specialist, Carter sprinted from his barracks into a ferocious firefight, a day-long battle on Oct. 3, 2009, that killed eight of his fellow soldiers as they tried to defend their outpost at the bottom of a valley and surrounded by high mountains from the onslaught of a much larger force of Taliban and local fighters. Still suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Carter stood nearly emotionless during the ceremony, although a faint smile crossed his face near the end that turned into a broad grin as Obama hung the metal and its blue ribbon around his neck and the audience which included 40 members of the recipients family answered with a rousing standing ovation. Later, Carter told reporters outside the White House that receiving the medal had been one of the greatest experiences for his family and that he would strive to live up to the responsibility. He also said he wanted to help the American public to better understand the invisible wounds still inflicting him and thousands of others. Only those closest to me can see the scars, Carter said, reading his statement. He said Americans should realize that those suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome are not damaged, they are just burdened by living when others are not. Obama praised Carter for talking openly about the disorder for some time. Obama said that Carter, like many veterans, at first resisted seeking help, but later accepted counseling. Carter, 33, is a former Marine who later enlisted in the Army and is currently assigned to the 7th Infantry Division at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state. He grew up in Spokane, Wash., and also has received a Purple Heart and many other military medals. Nation BRIEFS World BRIEFS Palestinians call off round of talks after clashQALANDIA REFUGEE CAMP, West Bank Palestinian negotiators called off a planned round of peace talks Monday after Israeli soldiers killed three protesters during clashes following an arrest raid in the West Bank, officials said. The violence, the deadliest incident in the area in years, dealt a new blow to U.S.-led peace efforts, which resumed late last month after a nearly fiveyear break. Palestinian officials have accused the Israelis of stonewalling and using the process as a cover to build new Jewish settlements. It was not known when talks will resume, but Palestinian officials said they could begin again as early as today. They spoke anonymously as they were not authorized to talk to media. Mondays clashes broke out when Israeli forces entered the Qalandia refugee camp, just outside of Jerusalem, on an overnight arrest raid. Shai Hakimi, a spokesman for the paramilitary border police, said hundreds of Palestinians poured into the streets and hurled firebombs, concrete blocks and rocks at officers. The Israeli military said soldiers rushed to the scene to provide backup and opened fire after they felt their lives were in imminent danger. An official at a Ramallah hospital confirmed three deaths and more than a dozen wounded. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.Police: treasure hunters attack Greek monasteryATHENS, Greece Police have arrested three armed men who allegedly broke into a Greek monastery, tied up monks and planned to search for treasure with a mechanical digger. They were caught Sunday when a friar who avoided capture phoned police before the digging could start at the Orthodox Monastery of St. George near Aliartos, northwest of Athens. It was rebuilt in modern times on medieval ruins. The four monks who were captured along with the mother of one of them were not hurt. Police said four other suspects in the attack are being sought, and quoted the captured suspects as saying they had planned to search for buried coins, not religious artifacts. Illegal treasure hunting has become increasingly popular during Greeces economic crisis.

WelcomePage A12TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013 NATION& WORLD Second suspect arrested in death of WWII veteranSPOKANE, Wash. Spokane Police on Monday arrested a second teen suspect in last weeks beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran who authorities said likely fought back against his attackers. The second suspect was arrested without incident early Monday morning at a friends house in Spokane, police said. The first suspect turned himself in last week. Both suspects are 16 years old and face charges of murder and robbery in the death of Delbert Belton last Wednesday. The two individuals we believe are responsible for the robbery and murder of Mr. Belton are in custody, Police Chief Frank Straub said at a news conference on Monday morning. Belton, who was wounded in the battle for Okinawa, was beaten to death in his vehicle as he waited for a friend in the parking lot of an Eagles Lodge in north Spokane. Straub said it appeared that Belton fought back against his attackers, and that may have contributed to the severity of the beating his received. Beltons wallet was taken, Straub said. Both suspects have criminal records for assault, Straub said.Dog fighting crackdown nets 12 arrestsMONTGOMERY, Ala. An investigation into organized dog fighting and gambling in the Southeast resulted in 12 arrests and the seizure of 367 pits bulls in one of the nations largest crackdowns on the bloody exhibitions. Federal, state and local officials announced the arrests Monday. They stemmed from raids Friday on homes in Alabama and Georgia and the seizure of more than $500,000 in cash that investigators believe was tied to illegal gambling on dog fights. Court-appointed attorneys for some of the defendants said they plan to plead not guilty at an arraignment Wednesday. The defendants are charged with conspiring to promote and sponsor dog fights and arranging for dogs to be at the fights in several south and east Alabama counties and in Holly Springs, Miss., between 2009 and 2013. Federal, state and local officials simultaneously served search warrants Friday to make arrests and seize dogs in Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. Officials said some pit bulls were so malnourished their ribs were sticking out and others had bad wounds that required emergency care.

UN at site of alleged attack Convoy hit by snipers in Syria Associated PressDAMASCUS, Syria U.N. experts collected samples and testimony from Syrian doctors and victims of an alleged chemical weapons attack Monday following a treacherous journey through government and rebelheld territory, where their convoy was hit by snipers. As Washington said there was undeniable evidence that Syria used chemical weapons and Western powers stepped up calls for swift military action, President Bashar Assads government vowed to defend itself against any international attack, warning that such an intervention would ignite turmoil across the region. It also would bring the U.S. closer to a conflict that has killed more than 100,000 people since Assad cracked down on Arab Spring-inspired protesters in March 2011. It would essentially pit the U.S. and regional allies Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar in a proxy war against Iran, which is providing weapons to the Syrian governments counterinsurgency, along with Hezbollah, the militant Lebanese group that also has aided Assads forces militarily. Assad told a Russian newspaper that any military campaign against his country was destined to fail. Support for some sort of international military response was likely to grow if it is confirmed that Assads regime was responsible for the Aug. 21 attack in the Damascus suburbs that activists say killed hundreds of people. The group Doctors Without Borders put the death toll at 355. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said chemical weapons were used in Syria and he accused Assads regime of destroying evidence. He said the U.S. has additional information about the attack and will make it public in the days ahead. Assad has denied launching a chemical attack, blaming the rebels instead, and has authorized a U.N. team of experts currently in Syria to investigate, although the U.S. said it was a step that came too late to be credible. Snipers opened fire on the U.N. convoy, hitting one of the vehicles carrying a team on its way to investigate the Aug. 21 incident. Martin Nesirky, a spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon, said one of the U.N. vehicles was deliberately shot at multiple times in the buffer zone between rebeland government-controlled territory, adding that the team was safe. US-Egypt alliance to remain Associated PressWASHINGTON The White House is reluctantly preparing to accept an Egyptian government that could be a democracy in name only, two years after the U.S. supported the overthrow of its dictator in the name of democracy. The U.S. is still holding out hope that Egypts military-backed interim leaders will cede power once elections scheduled for early next year are held and that an inclusive government will be formed under a publicly drafted constitution. But if that doesnt happen and the militarys bloody crackdowns last week of political opponents dampen those hopes the Obama administration cannot afford to distance itself from even an authoritarian Egypt. I dont think the White House was under the illusion that some sort of liberal and enlightened system was going to emerge from the ashes of the dictator in Egypt, said Tamara Cofman Wittes, who served as deputy assistant secretary of state from 2009 to 2012. She said the White House needs to develop a long-term strategy to nudge a military-run Egypt in a democratic direction. This is not about getting an ideal democracy, said Wittes, now director of the Saban Center for Mideast policy at the Brookings Institution in Washington. Its about the fact there will not be stability in Egypt without a more inclusive government. The Egyptian military, responding to popular unease over democratically elected President Mohammed Morsis policies, overthrew the civilian government on July 3, setting up an interim government and calling for elections early next year. U.S. officials believe it could be months, and perhaps years, for the Egyptian government to settle from the internal turmoil that began with the Arab Spring uprisings in 2011 that ousted autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak. Washington has been working more closely to promote democracy there since then than it has in years past. Egypt has long been a key U.S. ally, in large part because of its peace agreement with Israel, access to the Suez Canal and efforts to curb terrorism, particularly in the Sinai Peninsula, a feared haven for militants. Obama is reviewing the U.S. relationship with Egypt, and said in a CNN interview aired last Friday that theres no doubt that we cant return to business as usual, given whats happened. Still, the U.S. officials said democracy remains a possibility for Egypt even if it may take longer than U.S. leaders hope to emerge. Obama awards Medal of Honor to Afghan war veteran
Citrus, Lecanto volleyball teams shift into Class 5A with Crystal RiverC.J. RISAK CorrespondentNew season, new district. It wont be the same for three of the four schools that compete in volleyball in Citrus County. The Florida High School Athletic Association has shifted Lecanto and Citrus into Class 5A, putting both into a district with Crystal River and Dunnellon. Those four schools will make up 5A-6 for at least the next two years. So whos the favorite? Two schools posted superb records last season: Crystal River, competing in 5A-7 at the time, was regular season and district tournament champ, notching a 21-7 overall record and a 9-1 mark in district matches. Lecanto, playing in 6A-6 last season, ran up an 18-6 overall record, tying West Port for the top spot at 6-2. The Panthers lost to the Wolf Pack in five memorable sets in the tournament final. Both suffered considerable losses to graduation, with Lecanto losing seven players and Crystal River six. Still, those two teams figure to rebuild quickly and, together with an improving Citrus squad (6-20 overall in 2012, 1-7 in 6A-6), should be in the district title hunt. While that landscape has changed, in 2A-3 nothing has been altered. Seven Rivers Christian lost key players in Andrea Zachar, Danielle St. Martin and Allison Green, but the Warriors should still challenge Gainesville Cornerstone and Ocala St. John Lutheran for district supremacy. Gone from the Lecanto team are outside hitter Marie Buckley, libero Savannah Weller and setter Courtney Rymer. But coach Alice Christian is impressed with her teams work ethic thus far, figuring they will rebound quickly. Our teams pretty young, she admitted. We did graduate seven from last year, but this years team is good too. We have a lot of girls with a good attitude. Among those are junior outside hitter/setter Olivia Grey, junior Section BTUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013SPORTS Looking at the preseason Heisman Trophy favorites. / B4 Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 College football/B4 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE First-round Slam win for Venus matters Waiting to play Royals rout Hellickson, Rays Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. The Royals Jeremy Guthrie held down Wil Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays over five innings and Kansas City rolled to an 11-1 victory Monday in the makeup of a snowed-out game from early May. Guthrie (13-10) allowed six hits and three walks but twice delivered timely strikeouts. He fanned Kelly Johnson with two aboard to end the third inning, and then struck out David DeJesus on a called third strike to leave the bases loaded in the fourth. Rays manager Joe Maddon argued that the call and was tossed by plate umpire Greg Gibson. Jeremy Hellickson (10-8) allowed five runs in just 2 2/3 innings for Tampa Bay. It was the struggling right-handers shortest start since June 30, 2012, when he went the same distance in a game against Detroit before getting pelted in the leg by a line drive. Salvador Perez hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs, Billy Butler homered and drove in three, and Mike Moustakas also drove in a pair as the Royals won their second straight following a seven-game slide in which their biggest problem was scoring runs. James Loney drove in the only run for the Rays, who no doubt rued having to make the quick trip to Kansas City in the midst of a six-game homestand. They began the day a game back of the Red Sox in the AL East and lead the American League wildcard standings. Hellickson fell to 0-5 in his last six starts. Hes made it through five innings once. Floridas Jones, Morrison hope to return at Miami Associated PressGAINESVILLE The Florida Gators plan to have starting running back Matt Jones and middle linebacker Antonio Morrison back in the lineup when they visit Miami next week. Jones, hit with a viral infection in July, is nearing full strength, according to Florida coach Will Muschamp. Jones has been ruled out for Saturdays opener against Toledo, but should be cleared soon. As a freshman last season, Jones ran for 275 yards and three touchdowns on 52 carries. I certainly think hell be available next week, Muschamp said. We havent put pads on him yet and he hasnt been out in the heat yet. He has been in the heat as far as running is concerned, but theyre just worried about a relapse from a standpoint of coming back too early. Were waiting on the blood work to get back today. Ill know more later. Morrison, a sophomore, would have been an opening-day starter if not for two offseason arrests. He allegedly punched a nightclub bouncer July 16 when the man declined to give him discounted admission. He agreed to deferred prosecution. He was arrested again five days later for barking at a police dog and resisting arrest, which prompted Muschamp to announce a two-game suspension. The charges in that incident were dropped shortly afterward. After a thorough review of Antonio Morrisons situation and how he has handled his punishment, Im going to suspend him for this game only, Muschamp said Monday, referring to the season opener. I just dont feel like his actions warranted a twogame suspension. Thats where we are with that. Morrison played every game Will Muschamp See GATORS/ Page B4 Chronicle file photoSeven Rivers Christian School senior Alexis Zachar is one of the top returning players in the county as the 2013 high school volleyball season opened Monday.

Sister Serena Williams also cruises at US Open Associated PressNEW YORK For years and years, a first-round victory by Venus Williams at a major tournament would hardly merit a mention. She is, after all, a seven-time Grand Slam singles champion. Shes been the runner-up another seven times. She was ranked No. 1, owns Olympic gold medals, and is second to her younger sister Serena among active women in several key categories, including Grand Slam match wins, with 215. And yet nowadays, at age 33, two years removed from being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that saps energy, hampered much of this season by a bad lower back, and her ranking down to 60th, Williams entered Day 1 at the 2013 U.S. Open having won a total of three matches over the past five Grand Slam tournaments. Plus, she was facing 12thseeded Kirsten Flipkens, who was a semifinalist at Wimbledon last month and beat Williams on a hard court this month. Looking very much like the player she used to be, Williams smacked serves at up to 120 mph, returned superbly, covered the court well enough to hit a handful of swinging volley winners, and beat Flipkens 6-1, 6-2 Monday to reach the second round at Flushing Meadows. Flipkens, for one, was not surprised in the least to see Williams play that way. To Flipkens, this was not an upset no matter what the rankings indicate. If Venus is there if shes fit, if shes focused shes a top-10 player, Flipkens said. Everybody who knows a little bit of the game of tennis can see that. Today, she was like a top-10 player. Williams, who topped the WTA rankings in 2002, hasnt cracked the top 10 since she was No. 9 in March 2011. She hasnt been past the third round at a Grand Slam tournament since a fourth-round exit at Wimbledon later that year.

Associated PressTORONTO R.A. Dickey pitched into the seventh inning, Jose Reyes sparked Toronto's offense and the Blue Jays snapped a 10-game losing streak against the New York Yankees with a 5-2 victory on Monday night. Alex Rodriguez hit his 650th home run, a leadoff drive in the fifth, but the Yankees lost for the ninth time in 13 road games this month. Rodriguez is 10 homers away from tying Willie Mays for fourth on the career list, which would secure a $6 million bonus for the third baseman. Derek Jeter went hitless in his return to New York's lineup. Jeter, who started at shortstop and batted second, finished 0 for 3 with a walk, grounding into a double play in the third. Reyes walked and scored in the third, and doubled and scored in Toronto's three-run fifth as the Blue Jays beat the Yankees for just the second time in 14 meetings this season. Toronto had lost 10 straight to its division rival since an 8-4 home win on April 21. Dickey (10-12) allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in 6 1/3 innings to win for the first time since Aug. 5 at Seattle. The knuckleballer was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in his three previous starts. It was Dickey's first victory over the Yankees since May 21, 2011, when he played for the New York Mets. American League Athletics 8, Tigers 6DETROIT Coco Crisp and Daric Barton each drove in two runs, and the Oakland Athletics beat Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers 8-6. Cabrera hit his 43rd homer, bolstering his pursuit of another Triple Crown, but Barton had a tiebreaking RBI single in Oaklands two-run sixth inning. Crisp also had a solo homer during his three-hit performance. A.J. Griffin (11-9) allowed four runs and seven hits in five-plus innings, but managed to win for the first time since July 29. The right-hander was 0-2 with a 3.47 ERA in his previous four starts.National League Cardinals 8, Reds 6ST. LOUIS Allen Craig hit his first career grand slam with two out in the seventh inning, helping the St. Louis Cardinals rally for an 8-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Matt Holliday also had a long threerun homer as St. Louis moved into sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time since July 29. The Cardinals lead idle Pittsburgh by a half-game and Cincinnati by 3 1/2 games in the top-heavy division. Rookie Carlos Martinez (1-1) pitched two innings for his first major league win and Edward Mujica worked a perfect ninth for his 35th save. Zack Cozart had two hits and three RBIs for the Reds, who blew leads of 4-0 and 5-3. Jay Bruce hit his 25th homer in the eighth.Phillies 2, Mets 1NEW YORK Philadelphias Cliff Lee outpitched Zack Wheeler after the Mets learned All-Star starter Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, Cody Asche had a two-run triple, and the Phillies beat New York 2-1. Lee (11-3) gave a bullpen taxed by an 18-inning loss Saturday a muchneeded rest. He allowed a run and five hits in eight innings to win for the first time in seven starts since July 5. He also made several nice plays in the field. Asche hit his first major league triple with two outs in the fourth as the Phillies improved to 7-4 under new manager Ryne Sandberg and won for the second time in 15 road games.

As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the first major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons. Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner-up Mike Trout. His 126 RBIs were best in the league, too, eight better than Davis. In home runs, though, Davis held a 46-42 advantage. And if the Baltimore Orioles slugger can make that lead stand up, then Cabreras bid for a repeat performance will be denied. As far as me being the obstruction for him doing it again, I hope he does do it again, Davis said. That would be awesome. Hes a great hitter. He deserves everything that he gets. My goal is not to go out there and keep Miguel Cabrera from winning the Triple Crown. Its to do everything I can to put us in position to win, whether that means I hit 10 more home runs or two more home runs. Ive had a productive year so far, but if we dont make the playoffs, it doesnt really mean a lot. A productive year? Thats putting it mildly. Davis ranks 10th in the AL with a .302 batting average, has already surpassed his previous career high RBI total by 33 and leads everyone in both leagues in home runs. Most importantly, hes got four more homers than Cabrera, who last year became the first player to win the Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski did it in 1967. Davis understands the significance of the accomplishment. Obviously when somebody does something like that, not only is it extremely hard to do, but it doesnt happen very often, he said. You have to appreciate that. Only two players in baseball history have won it twice: Rogers Hornsby in 1922 and 1925, and Ted Williams in 1942 and 1947. No one will argue that Cabrera is among the finest righthanded hitters ever to play the game. In most years, 42 homers with a week to play in August would be good enough for the league lead. Not this year. Cabrera has been in catch-up mode for months behind the man nicknamed Crush. We dont worry about him, Cabrera insisted. We focus on what we can do here in Detroit. Davis wont measure his success in 2013 by the numbers of home runs he hits. Hes more focused on the numbers in the victory column for Baltimore. Associated PressBaltimores Chris Davis follows through on a two-run home run July 14 against Toronto in Baltimore. Only Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history. Cabrera, star of the Detroit Tigers, has a shot at becoming the first player to win the Triple Crown in successive years. But he has to overcome Davis, who has four more home runs with five weeks to play.
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE in the first round in two of her previous four appearances at majors, including at the French Open in May; she sat out Wimbledon for the only time in her career in June. I stay positive because I know I can play great tennis. Sometimes you just have to go through more than what you want to go through, the American said after winning the first four games and the last four games against Belgiums Flipkens. Sometimes you have to have losses. Their match was the days second in Arthur Ashe Stadium, and owing perhaps to the early hour or the stricter security measures, including new metal detectors, that led to long delays for spectators entering the grounds there were thousands of empty blue seats in the 23,000-capacity arena. The place was full for the night session, when Serena Williams began her title defense with a 6-0, 6-1 victory, a performance so thoroughly impressive that her opponent, 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone, was prompted in a brief moment of levity to seek comfort by hugging a ball boy. The match lasted exactly an hour, and light rain began falling right after it ended, delaying play, including 17-time major champion Roger Federers match against 62nd-ranked Grega Zemlja of Slovenia. Earlier on Ashe, 12-time major champion Rafael Nadal delivered a straightforward, straight-set victory over 21-year-old American Ryan Harrison, part of a series of smooth performances by top players. Flipkens was one of two seeded women to lose, along with No. 29 Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia. Three seeded men exited during Mondays afternoon session: No. 11 Kei Nishikori, No. 27 Fernando Verdasco and No. 30 Ernests Gulbis. Sloane Stephens, a 20-year-old American seeded 15th, very nearly was on the list of losers, dropping the opening set, then trailing 42 in the third and 3-1 in the closing tiebreaker, before coming back to edge 110th-ranked Mandy Minella of Luxembourg 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5). Stephens heard plenty of support from the crowd, of course. She also picked out one particular voice in the stands that tried to remind her of at least one reason to be motivated. Someone yelled to me, If you dont get it together, this lady is going to take your second round prize money! I was like, Oh, God, Stephens recounted. Shes one of a crop of young women from the U.S. seen as potential successors to the Williams sisters as tennis standard-bearers for the country; the 19 Americans in the main draw are the most at a Grand Slam tournament in seven years. By reaching the semifinals at the Australian Open in January, then the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, Stephens only increased expectations particularly when competing on home turf. Theres more eyes on me, said Stephens, who is based in Coral Springs. Just the whole being here at the U.S. Open is a bit overwhelming. Literally everywhere you go, every single person knows who you are, as opposed to when youre at the French Open or when youre at Wimbledon. middle hitter Shannon Fernandez, junior outside hitter Annalee Garcia and junior outside hitter Morgan Christian. All recorded substantial time on varsity last season. A lot of them have come a long way, Christian said. I think well do better than what most people think well do. That sentiment is echoed at Crystal River, which rolled to its district title last season before losing in the first round of regional play. The Pirates lost ChroniclePlayer of the Year Casidy Newcomer, as well as Emily Laga and Sabrina Scott. There is rebuilding to do, but thus far coach Mike Ridley believes its gone well. I think its going to be very competitive between Lecanto, Citrus and us, he said. Dunnellon is building its program, but it should be close. Despite the losses, Crystal River does have six players back who saw considerable action on varsity. They include seniors Aspen Phillips at setter, Samantha Pauley at libero, Olivia Hudson at middle blocker, defensive specialists Laynee Nadal and Delaney Owens and outside hitter Marissa Pool. One alteration for the Pirates is the addition of three promising freshmen to the varsity squad: Kaylan Simms (middle blocker), Kaite Eichler (setter) and Natalie Ortiz (outside hitter). Ridleys team last year was all seniors and juniors. Its a blend of experience and newcomers, he said. Well be in the mix. Were trying to raise our game. Same holds true at Citrus, which welcomes a new coach well, sort of. Sandra VanDerVort takes over for David Assumpcao; she served as his assistant last season. With all but three players back, things are looking up for the Hurricanes. Still, those losses defensive specialist Liz Lynch, setter Jessica Liptrap and libero Lindsey Connors wont be easy to replace. But VanDerVort is confident. I am very excited about this season, she said. I feel very confident Citrus High School will be making headlines this season. Leading the Canes are returnees Amy and Kelly Abramowich, both seniors who will share team captaincy. Amy will be a setter, Kelly an outside hitter. Also back are seniors Haley Martone, an outside hitter, and middle hitters Kendra Kirby, Shenelle Toxen and Leah Stanley and junior middle hitter Jordan Josey. Sophomore Adriana Espinoza will take over as libero, and newcomer Morgan Cleary, a sophomore, joins returning senior Melanie Dodd as a defensive specialist. Seven Rivers may have lost one Zachar in Andrea, but the 6-foot-3 senior Alexis, a dominating force in the middle, returns and will be joined by younger sister Amanda, a sophomore outside hitter. Still, the Warriors lost eight seniors from last seasons 14-12 team. It is a lot to replace, Seven Rivers coach Wanda Grey said. But we do have four girls who were on varsity last year, and with the girls coming up I think well be better than last year. These girls communicate real well together. Theyre a hustling group. Joining Alexis Zachar as a returnee are juniors Alyssa Gage, a middle hitter/setter, Kim Iwaniec, a setter/outside hitter and Julia Eckart, an outside hitter. Tessa Kacer will take over at libero and Michaela Wallace will fill a spot at outside hitter; both are juniors. Holly Passord and Jacqueline Miller are senior defensive specialists, and sophomore Katie Dreyer is an outside hitter. How quickly these players evolve will be a key component if Seven Rivers hopes to catch Cornerstone and St. John Lutheran in the 2A-3 race.Citrus High SchoolCoach: Sandra VanDerVort, first season.

The Bucs also announced Monday that receivers Carlton Mitchell and Derek Hagan, defensive ends Ernest Owusu and Markus White, quarterback Adam Weber, fullback Spencer Larsen and safety Troy Nolan were waived. The team signed tight end Mike Shanahan, who has been in training camp with the New York Jets. Gaitor (knee) and Smith (foot) were competing for backup jobs.Mets ace Harvey has torn ligament in elbowNEW YORK Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, a potentially devastating injury for the pitcher that had given the foundering New York Mets reason to be hopeful about their future. For now, the 24-year-old Harvey and the Mets hope that he will be able to avoid reconstruction surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament. A full prognosis will not be made until swelling in the elbow goes down in about two weeks. The seventh pick overall of the 2010 draft, Harvey is 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA. He has a league-leading 191 strikeouts in 178 1/3 innings pitched and was a top candidate for the NL Cy Young Award.Tracy McGrady announces retirement from NBATracy McGrady said he is retiring from the NBA.

for Florida last year and started three times. He was eighth on the team with 34 tackles. Muschamp declined to specify how Morrison has been punished aside from missing the Toledo game, but was satisfied with his apology and willingness to work his way back into good standing with the program. I think hes remorseful about the whole situation, Muschamp said. Weve moved forward. Guys make mistakes and have poor judgment at times. Next weeks game will be the first between No. 10 Florida and Miami since 2008, and could be the last time the schools play in the regular season. This game will complete a home-andhome contract, and both programs have indicated no intention of signing another one. Florida also announced that offensive tackle Chaz Green will need seasonending surgery to repair a torn labrum he suffered last week. Green, a redshirt junior, was expected to start at right tackle against Toledo. The Gators already are going into the season without starting right guard Jon Halapio, who has not practiced since tearing his left pectoral muscle while weightlifting in July. Halapio has been ruled out for the first two games, and the team hopes to get him back Sept. 21 against Tennessee. Without those two, Florida will start red-shirt senior Kyle Koehne at right guard and Nebraska transfer Tyler Moore at right tackle. Contending QBs Boyd of Clemson and Georgias Murray meet Saturday night Associated PressTo win the Heisman Trophy, a player needs the right combination of numbers and narrative, highlight plays and signature victories. Johnny Manziels Heisman run last season was fueled by dizzying stats, a brilliant performance in Texas A&Ms upset victory against Alabama, complete with a couple of did-you-see-that? plays, and the fact that he was trying to become the first freshman to win college footballs most prestigious individual award. Here are six (or so) Heisman contenders and what has to happen for them to win the big bronze statue.Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. Assuming Johnny Football plays the entire season, he should put up more video-game numbers in a potent offense. Even so, itll be hard for him to top last season and anything less wont have the same wow-factor. There is room for improvement in one category: victories. The Aggies went 10-2 in the regular season last year. Make that 13-0 or 12-1, with a Southeastern Conference title and a berth in the BCS championship game, and Manziel could join Archie Griffin as the only two-time Heisman winners. Marqise Lee, WR, USC. Heisman voters are generally not impressed by wide receivers. Only two (Tim Brown in 1987 and Desmond Howard in 1991) have won it. Lee is coming off the most prolific season (118 catches and 1,721 yards) by a receiver in Pac-12 history. It was good enough for a distant fourth in the Heisman voting, despite USCs disappointing fall from preseason No. 1 to 7-6. Far less is expected of the 24th-ranked Trojans this season and Lee will have a first-year starting quarterback getting him the ball. If Lee has another huge year and USC can reach the Pac-12 title game and maybe knock off Notre Dame along the way the story will be how he carried the new QB(s). At the least that makes him a Heisman finalist.Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson and Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia. Boyds eighth-ranked Tigers host Murrays fifthranked Bulldogs on Saturday to open the season. The winning quarterback in what figures to be a high-scoring game between two of the best offenses in the country likely shoots to the top of the Heisman watch lists. How much does that matter in September? Generally, as Denard Robinson and Geno Smith can attest, not much. Though Georgias front-loaded schedule (South Carolina on Sept. 7, and LSU on Sept. 28), gives Murray a shot to get a huge jump on the competition. Boyd has three big tests to pass (Georgia, Florida State, Oct. 19, and at South Carolina, Nov. 30) in an otherwise ho-hum schedule. Clemson needs to go at least 2-1 in those games and win the Atlantic Coast Conference for Boyd to win the Heisman.AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama. The Crimson Tide are almost too good to have a Heisman winner. With so much talent surrounding McCarron (receiver Amari Cooper, tailback T.J. Yeldon, etc.) its hard for him to stand out. And his raw numbers will always lag behind other top quarterbacks because of Alabamas balance and ability to easily dispatch so many opponents. To separate himself from the pack, McCarron will need more moments like he had at LSU last season, when he led the Tide to a lastminute, game-winning touchdown. Another trip to the BCS title game is also a must for a McCarron Heisman.Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina. If Clowney is going to be the first defensive player to win the Heisman, hell need to put up a huge sack total. The official NCAA record is 24 by Terrell Suggs of Arizona State in 2002. The late Derrick Thomas had 27 for Alabama in 1988 before sacks became an official stat. The magic sack number for Clowney? Twenty sounds about right. Also, hell probably need to score a touchdown and/or pick off a pass. And lead the Gamecocks to the SEC title game. Despite all the hype, realistically, Clowney is a long shot to win the Heisman.Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon. Mariotas problems are similar to McCarrons. As good as Mariota is, the Ducks are loaded. Do-everything-back DeAnthony Thomas might be the most dynamic and dangerous player in the country. The Ducks propensity to pound their opponents provides plenty of fourth-quarter rest for Mariota. And anything less than a trip to the BCS title game for Mariota and the Ducks, will seem like a disappointment. Oregon will need to be just about perfect to have its first Heisman winner. EXTRA POINT: Six more prime Heisman contenders: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville; Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford; Jordan Lynch, QB, Northern Illinois; Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State; Casey Pachall, QB, TCU; Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor.

Technical coordinators needed for Tax-Aide/C6 Community: Section CTUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013 HEALTH& LIFE Spend time with friends, children and family. Walking and talking go hand-in-hand and you might even make new friends along the way. Explore your local area its the best way to discover hidden places you might not know are there. Enjoy green spaces and nature fresh air, peace and quiet, and a place for the kids to run around. Or just take time to relax by yourself. Getting enough exercise can be a daily struggle. Theres never enough time, energy, or sunny weather; the pets have a yard to play in, and you worked all week. Fortunately, something most of us do every day is an easy form of exercise: walking. Wearing a pedometer a little device that counts steps you take can show how much you walk each day, whether its at work, in the grocery store, to and from the car, or around the house. Once you have an idea of how much you walk without realizing it, making ways to walk can be fun walk around the block to get the mail, park in the back of the lot at stores, or take your dog on a sightseeing tour of the neighborhood. Walking is one of the easiest exercised to fit into your daily routine and you might even enjoy it. Inside: Cancer & Blood Disease/ C2 Urology Today/C3 Sound Bites/C5 Health Notes/C2 Did you know? Know your environment Safety first Know your bodyWalking just 1 mile burns more than 100 calories. A mile is only about a 20-minute walk. Choose routes that are well used, and well lit if you walk at night. Know where youre going if you dont know the area well, take a map or leaflet. Be prepared to change your route if you feel unsafe for any reason. Take a cell phone and/or tell someone where youve gone if youre going on a long walk. If youre wearing headphones, make sure you can hear traffic and are aware of everything thats going on around you. Take care on busy roads and road crossings, and paths used by cyclists. Make sure youre wearing comfortable clothes and shoes. Unless youre sure its not going to rain, take a jacket its easier than holding an umbrella. A hat can keep you warm in winter and protect you from the sun in summer. Take some food and water if youre going on a longer walk. A small backpack is more comfortable to walk with, and is better for your back than an ordinary bag. Stand up straight but relaxed and look ahead. Try to swing your arms in time with your stride. Breathe deeply and in rhythm with your steps if you can.

But in the past 30 to 40 years, it has become a field of study of its own. While the principles have a broad application to outpatient care, it might be a little bit more relevant for the elderly patient population. This is a time in life where we want to maintain our autonomy and self-governing. This respect is something all of us want in the autumn of our life. Doctors with the help of HIPA guidelines Healthy diet may reduce cancer risk Over the past few years, more and more data has been published looking at the effect of a healthy diet and a persons risk of many different disease processes, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and many more. Many studies have shown strong links between a healthy diet and a lower risk of developing cancer, and several have also shown that people who have already been diagnosed with cancer and have been treated also have a better outcome and lower risk of the cancer returning CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Dr. C.

HEALTH& LIFE CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEC2TUESDAY, AUGUST27, 2013 WEEKLY SUPPORT MEETINGS HEALTH NOTES Breast cancer and blood pressure medications Breast cancer is the commonest cancer in women in the U.S. (excluding skin cancer). More than 230,000 women and roughly 2,400 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. What causes breast cancer? There are many causes, including family history of breast cancer, certain genes, estrogen, etc., but in many cases, we do not know the cause. Recently, one study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association a very prestigious journal. It drew lots of attention. This study suggested that certain medications for high blood pressure, called calcium channel blockers, more than double the risk of breast cancer. This is true if these medications are taken for long duration, more than 10 years. The population-based study in the three-county SeattlePuget Sound metropolitan area included women aged 55 to 74 years. 1,907 women with breast cancer were compared with 856 without cancer. Researchers measured the risk of breast cancer and examined the recency and duration of use of different medications for high blood pressure. The researchers found that calcium channel blockers more than double the risk of breast cancer if they were taken for more than 10 years. Other medications for high blood pressure did not increase the risk of breast cancer. There are many different kinds of calcium channelblocker medications. It did not matter whether they were short acting or long acting. Medications for high blood pressure are the most commonly prescribed class of drugs in the United States and in 2010 totaled an estimated 678 million prescriptions were filled for it. Calcium channel blockers are among the most frequently prescribed medications in the United States; they accounted for nearly 98million of the more than 678million prescriptions filled in 2010. However, despite the widespread use of these agents, there have been few studies examining the relationship between different types of these medications and breast cancer risk, and results are inconsistent. This is the first study to observe that long-term use of calcium channel blockers is associated with breast cancer risk. We must realize that this is an observational study and so it is not a final study. This finding must be confirmed before we can put it into practice. I do not think any of my readers who are taking one of the calcium channel blockers should consider switching it just because of this study.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

TUESDAY, AUGUST27, 2013 C3CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUPS Impending crisis of bacterial antibiotic resistance The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Infectious Diseases Society of America and many other organizations have labeled the rising levels of resistance to antibiotics as a crisis situation. Antibiotics have proven dramatically effective in the fight against infectious diseases over the past 70 years. The success of the antibiotics against killer diseases such as tuberculosis, plague and syphilis has been one of the main reasons for the increase in longevity from the 1950s to 1990s. Despite the phenomenal success of the antimicrobial agents, the widespread use of these drugs over many years has caused bacteria and other microbes to adapt and become resistant, making the drugs less effective. Patients infected with such organisms that are resistant to drugs are prone to have more serious infections that lead to longer hospital stays. Patients may even die as a result. The problem is compounded by the fact pharmaceutical companies are hardly investing in newer antibiotics because the profit margin is very low. The last major antibiotic class introduced was quinolones (Ciprofloaxin and Levofloxacin group) developed 40 years ago. There is widespread abuse of antibiotics in the U.S. According to Drs. Bartlett and associates, specialists in infectious diseases, though we have only 4.6 percent of the world population, our antibiotic use accounts for 46 percent of the global market. There are several urgent steps that Drs. Bartlett and associates, writing in Medline, recommend that we undertake to combat the oncoming crisis: 1. Collect data on antibiotic use and drug resistance, as has been done for many years in the European Union. This will help better identify areas to take corrective action. 2. Stop antibiotic use on the farm: 80 percent of all antibiotics used are used in the farm. This leads to resistant bacteria and genes that are eventually transmitted to patients. 3. Prudent use of antibiotics by the medical community (antibiotic stewardship): avoiding unnecessary use, use of shortest effective course and changing from intravenous to the oral form of the antibiotics as soon as practical to hasten the discharge of patients. 4. Public education about avoiding inappropriate use of antibiotics: consumers expect even viral infections such as the common cold to be treated with a course of antibiotics. Such therapy is not only unnecessary but may even be harmful as it alters the bacteria normally present in the bowel. This may result in severe bowel disorders and antibiotic resistance. 5. Use of rapid diagnostic tests to diagnose resistant bacteria faster: such tests will become more common in the future. 6. Develop newer drugs: the current expensive model of drug research and development, and outdated FDA approval processes need to be replaced with innovative approaches using a private-public partnership, federal support for research and encouraging novel drug testing initiatives such as the Antibiotic Resistance Network funded by the National Institute of Health. 7. Integrate antibiotic resistance initiatives into health care reform: Health care professionals should be encouraged to follow best practices to prevent infections that can save lives and billions of dollars. 8. Creating a plan for the U.S.: The European Union has funded their antibiotic resistance program to the tune of $220 million annually. We do not have a comparable initiative in the USA. It is only by creating awareness among the public and the medical community of one of the greatest risks to human health by the increasing bacterial antibiotic resistance can we build the momentum to collectively formulate strategies for corrective action.

protect patient information. Patients need to be free from outside controlling influences and hopefully progress the mental and physical capability for decision-making. Doctors can help in this area by stressing informed consent. In short, giving you all the options and allowing you to make your own decisions. Many of our patients here in Citrus County tend to have some hearing and/or visual problems that can make communication difficult. Add to that dementia occurring with age, which can make for a difficult decision-making process. Also, as we age, we sometimes have multiple medical problems that can lead to very complex decision-making. In some instances, families are around to help with that process. But with or without families, it may be more time consuming and take multiple visits to accomplish the goal. Another thing that is evident is lack of planning. None of us want to think about bad things happening to us, but that is a possibility and being prepared is the best defense. Events directives, which describe exactly what you would like done in certain circumstances while you are at the hospital, need to be in place and power of attorney issues for health care is very important as well. Repeat office visits with your doctor provide an opportunity for you to initiate that discussion so that if and when that time comes that you are in the emergency room or Intensive Care Unit, you know that your wishes will be respected and you dont have to make any snap decisions that you may regret later. This is very important in light of the fact that patients have different opinions about whether they want treatment withheld or withdrawn and if they want extraordinary measures taken to prolong ones life. Artificial nutrition and hydration via tube feedings helps babies and non-terminally sick patients return to normal activity and grow and thrive. However, it could be futile in a terminally ill patient and prolong an unnecessary and unpleasant event. At this point in time, society cannot come to an agreement about how health care should be delivered and used, which may not be a bad thing. And while we still have this choice, it would be a great time to discuss your desires with family members and your physician. You just cant be too prepared.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

The move across medicine and dietary circles it to encourage a diet that is more plant based than animal based, low in fat and carbohydrates. Now, a new study confirms this theory, showing that a healthy diet may protect against pancreatic cancer. In this new study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., calculated what they called the Healthy Eating Index 2005 (HEI-2005) score for 537,218 men and women participating in the National Institutes of HealthAmerican Association of Retired Persons Diet and Health Study. This study consisted of following this very large population of people with food frequency questionnaires, sent to participants on a regular basis, and returned to the NCI between the years of 1995 and 1996. It is a very large population of participants, but depends on honest reporting. Over the life of the study, the researchers found that there were 2,383 cases of pancreatic cancer. The promising finding was that there was a reduced risk of pancreatic cancer when the researchers compared participants who met the most dietary guidelines with those who met the fewest guidelines. And, as one would expect, there was a significant correlation when looking at the participants body mass index, with, as expected, a higher risk of pancreatic cancer in those participants with a high BMI. Specifically, overweight or obese men compared to normal-weight men had a significantly higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer, whereas men in the normal weight category did not show this link. As one would expect, those who eat well and exercise will have a lower BMI, thus a lower risk of pancreatic cancer. Overall, the findings continue to support previous studies that have shown that consuming a high-quality diet, along with a regular program of exercise, and thus maintaining a normal BMI, may reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer.Dr. C.

TUESDAY, AUGUST27, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Removal of canine teeth leads to replacement questions Q:In July of this year, my two lower front canines were found to be vertically fractured and have two cysts. On Aug. 12, the two cysts and canines were extracted, leaving a wide gap, with no temporary teeth. I plan to have tooth implants, and I will very likely need a bone grafting surgery before this, and these take time. I have the following questions:Can I just do nothing, i.e., leave a wide gap between my two lower front teeth for up to 18 months before dental implantsupported prostheses are constructed? Will adjacent teeth shift and will there be dental problems? How many months after tooth extraction will the teeth start to shift? How many months after tooth extraction will dental problems arise? Will using a mouth guard (before the prostheses are in place) prevent tooth shifting and dental problems, and will it affect bone graft and dental implant surgeries? When should I start wearing a mouth guard? A: This is a very involved situation with some very good questions. Let me first say that in order for you to get a true second opinion, you will need to see a different dentist than the one you have already seen. If you have not seen an oral surgeon for the implant portion of this case, you might benefit from a consultation with one. They are not only familiar with implants, but highly trained in surgery. There has been a general trend for general dentists to place dental implants recently. Unless they are trained extensively in the surgical placement of implants and the management of any circum stances that could arise, I feel the best choice for the placement of implants is a trained surgeon. Please know that my answers regarding your questions are in general terms, in response to my understanding of your question as you have written it. If a cyst was removed, there was some degree of bone loss. In situations such as this, a bone graft is always a good idea. The success of an implant relies, in great part, on the quality and quantity of bone it is put in. Not only do you have the lack of bone where the root of the tooth was, but also where the cyst was. As for the movement of teeth: I have seen teeth move in only a few days, as related to the placement of a new crown, where the patient had lost the temporary and not made us aware. The tooth in front of the canine is very small and slender and, as a result, could easily move into the space of the removed tooth. Even though the tooth behind the canine is larger, there is a higher tendency for it to move forward than for a front tooth to move backward. Tooth movement is an issue. The use of a mouth guard, or more specifically, a temporary partial denture, is a great idea. You should use this as soon as your dentist says it is OK to use it. The type of graft done will have something to do with when you can start wearing one. Without the use of this prosthesis, you will likely experience problems you will have to address at a later date. If, on the other hand, you do not care to replace the missing teeth you will probably not care if there were tooth movement. This is your decision to make. As an aside, before the use of implants, replacing the canines was a difficult and more involved procedure. I think it is great that dentistry has such a great alternative to the way this would have been handled in the past. I hope that I have helped you understand your options.

COMMUNITYPage C6TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Precious Paws ADOPTABLES Marnie Special to the ChronicleMarnie is a sweet kitten with an inquisitive face.

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 peer-to-peer networks, understanding relatively simple routers and their configuration and linking a network to the Internet through site supplied 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. Last month, United Methodist Women from across Florida gathered at Florida Southern College for our annual school. Formerly called the School of Christian Mission, it was our inaugural Mission U School. Margaret Williams and I represented the Crystal River UMW for the four-day conference. The studies this year helped us to delve into the issue of poverty, to become acquainted with one of the oldest groups of people on earth, Roma of Europe, and to live sacramentally while walking justly. It was a journey we would share with our local UMW units throughout the year. Our theme was Learn, Act, Transform. Women, youths and children attended and had a variety of opportunities to understand the mission of our church in the world context and the responsibilities we have to fulfill that mission while strengthening the leadership of UMW. We experienced focus groups on mental health, viewed mission audio-visuals, and visited the learning center where UMW units shared their projects with extensive displays and informative brochures. In between classes we could learn a craft and view a Methodist heritage display. Morning devotions were conducted in the prayer and meditation room at the start of each day. The literature room was stocked with study books, devotional books and various leadership supplies. There were Hispanic, Haitian and Korean coordinators for classes offered in their given language. Conference and district leadership development sessions were held to equip us for our upcoming year in our local church. I took the Poverty class and Margaret took the Roma Europe class. In the Poverty class, we shared ways that we can minster to those in need, besides volunteering in food distribution and food pantries, as I do. Our class provided an opportunity for each of us to fully participate in the morning worship, discussions, research and study. As we listened to stories of faith and how others were able to respond to the challenges people in poverty face, we networked and bonded. There are many missing pieces in the lives of the poor and we can help put the puzzling conditions of their lives together again. In addition to providing food and clothing, school supplies and meals, we can offer job training and placement and counseling with the varied issues they are facing. We can scout out low-income housing for them. Some of the class exercises were a penny wars activity, where we were given pennies to purchase food for our family with a limited income and we had to decide how to stretch the money for our familys needs. Another exercise involved a dirty laundry clothesline strung across the front of the class, where we hung up things that are being done to the poor that should not be done and things that should be done. We wrote letters about what we were committed to do about poverty when we return to our local unit, then sealed it and gave it to a classmate to mail to us in December, to evaluate. On our last day of class, we came forward with a pebble to drop into a bowl of water and we said aloud: I will make a ripple of hope for those who are experiencing poverty. This quote on our classroom wall said it all: Humankind was not woven into the web of life. We are but one thread woven within it. Whatever we do to the weak, we do to ourselves, by Chief Seattle. In the Living Sacramentally and Walking Justly Class, there were many worship and transformation learning exercises. We shared our life stories, our similarities and differences and hopefully these reflections will lead to positive action. We studied in-depth the sacraments of baptism, communion and prayer, and how we can stay on track. We learned that we are continually growing in our relationships with each other and God as His representatives in the world, telling of His mercy, grace and love by the way we live. We agreed that the gift of each day given to us does not have to limit our tomorrows, and that as we study a scriptural passage, our lifetime experiences, including assumptions, will affect it. This years Mission U Experience spoke to us of justice (changing situations by the way we live and think) and breaking the cycle of poverty by calling us to do different things with different people.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, AUGUST27, 2013 C7 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In The Devils Dictionary, Ambrose Bierce defined prescription as a physicians guess at what will best prolong the situation with least harm to the patient. At the bridge table, the prescription for success is trying not to have to guess what to do, but what will have mathematically the best chance to succeed. In this deal, South is in four spades. West leads the club queen. Since East is marked with the club ace, declarer plays low from the board at tricks one and two, but still loses the first three tricks. East then shifts to the spade six. After drawing trumps, how should declarer continue? South opened three spades, showing a respectable suit, some 6-10 high-card points and about seven winners. Here, North would have done well to respond three no-trump, but if Souths suit needed establishing, that contract could have gone down several tricks. Raising to four spades was normal. South has only nine winners: seven spades, one heart and one diamond. At first glance, it looks as though he needs one of the red-suit finesses to work. But which one should he take? It seems to be a pure guess. However, he can improve his odds slightly. Declarer should play a diamond to dummys ace, ruff a low diamond in his hand, return to dummy with a trump, and ruff another diamond. Here, the king drops, establishing dummys queen and allowing South to claim. But if the diamond king is still out there somewhere, declarer cashes the rest of his trumps, planning to take the heart finesse at trick 12.

I HATE sex. Everyone, including my boyfriend of seven years, thinks theres something wrong with me. Im sure there is, but I have hated having sex since I was first intimate. I cant believe he has stayed with me this long. I dont like to be touched by anyone. As soon as someone gets close, I move away so they dont accidentally brush against me. I force myself to have sex with my boyfriend and pretend I enjoy it because I know its not fair to deny him. But the whole time we are being intimate, Im thinking, Is this ever going to end? What is wrong with me? Maryland Miss Dear Maryland: Sex should be a pleasurable activity. There are people who are disinterested or ambivalent about sex. But someone who dislikes being touched may have psychological issues that were not resolved or sensory issues that were never addressed. We commend you for being willing to work on this. Please talk to your doctor and also contact AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) at aasect.org. They may be able to guide you toward a healthier, happier outlook. Dear Annie: I am a firsttime grandma to a beautiful baby girl. We live in the same town. I offered to be the caregiver at their home, but my daughter-in-law prefers to take the baby with her on a 50-mile round-trip to a daycare near her job. I was devastated by that decision, but accepted it. What Im having trouble understanding is how often I see the baby. During my few short visits, I have not felt comfortable in their home. I communicate with my son because my daughter-in-law seems very standoffish. I told my son I dont wish to be a burden on their household routine, but twice I made arrangements to see the baby only to be told on the day of that visit that I had to leave after 30 minutes. The last visit was five weeks ago. I phoned my son and begged to see the baby more often. He agreed at the time that once a week (depending on their schedule) was not unreasonable. I set up an hour visit for this week, and when I arrived at their door, they were preparing to leave the house. My visit, which meant so much to me, was totally forgotten. My son and his wife have known each other only 13 months. Between the pregnancy, the marriage, the birth and moving into their home, I know its been stressful, so Ive tried to be patient. What is a reasonable expectation for visiting the new baby? Want To Know My Granddaughter Dear Want: There is no definitive timetable for visiting. It depends on the flexibility and schedules of those involved, as well as the willingness of the participants. Your daughter-in-law apparently is not keen on having you around, and your son is caught in the middle. Dont push. Instead, make it your goal to become closer to your daughter-in-law. Be her friend. Call her. Ask how shes doing. Let her know you value her and think shes a good wife and mother. See whether you can arrange an excursion to the mall or a concert whatever interests her. If you can help her to be more comfortable around you, the visits will likely increase. Dear Annie: Please tell Need Help, the teenager who has mood swings, that most teachers check their email throughout the summer and during school vacations. No matter when it is, most of us are just an email away. We still care about our students, regardless of whether its summertime, winter vacation or spring break. That letter broke my heart. It sounds like a student I had this year. I hope he emails me. Teacher in Louisville, Ky.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Associated PressCHICAGO Thousands of Chicago children whose schools were shuttered last spring walked to new ones on the first day of school Monday under the watchful eye of police officers and newly hired safety guards there to provide protection as the kids crossed unfamiliar streets many of them gang boundaries. No incidents of trouble were reported, police said. While that didnt surprise parents and grandparents, they said they were still concerned that the citys obvious show of first-day force wont keep their children safe in the weeks and months to come. I think its just show-and-tell right now, said Annie Stovall, who walked her granddaughter, 9-year-old Kayla Porter, to Gresham Elementary School, which is about five blocks farther from home than Kaylas previous South Side school. Five, six weeks down the road, lets see whats going to happen. Kathy Miller stood in front of Gresham Elementary with her three children, waiting for a bus that would take them to another school. She scoffed at the Safe Passage program, in which guards clad in neon vests line Chicago streets, saying it wont be long before brightly colored signs announcing the programs routes will be riddled with bullets. Those signs dont mean nothing, she said. The preparation and show of force shows whats at stake for Chicago Public Schools, the nations third-largest school district, after it closed almost 50 schools last spring in the hopes of improving academic performance and saving millions of dollars. About 12,000 of the districts 400,000 students were affected by the closures. For months, parents, teachers and community activists have warned that forcing children to pass through some of the citys more impoverished and dangerous neighborhoods where some already walking in the middle of the street to avoid being ambushed by gang members to get to school puts them at undue risk. Statistics suggest those concerns are valid. An analysis of Chicago crime data by WBEZFM found that in 2013, there have been 133 shootings and 38 homicides in and around areas that have been newly marked as Safe Passage routes. And if the attention Chicago received after a 15-year-old honor student was killed about a mile from President Barack Obamas home in January is any indication, there is no doubt a similar media firestorm will occur if a child is caught in gang crossfire on the way to or from school. One officer standing outside Gresham Elementary summed up the pressure the police department and City Hall are under this year, joking that children better not get a splinter or well all be out of a job. With the hope of preventing problems, the financially strapped city hired 600 workers at a rate of $10 an hour to supplement a Safe Passage program that has existed since 2009, launched the same year a Chicago honors students beating death was videotaped. Police worked with residents and CPS to map out routes near 52 of the so-called welcoming schools that are taking in students from the closed schools. Along those routes, the city has put up scores of Safe Passage signs. Mayor Rahm Emanuel also deployed city departments to repair sidewalks, replace street lights, paint over graffiti and board up nearly 300 abandoned buildings. On Monday, Emanuel didnt mention Safe Passage, focusing instead on changes that have been made for this school year, starting with a full day of kindergarten. But last week, he told about 1,000 people at a training session that the program is about more than just building a route to school. It is about building a route to college, career and beyond ... he said. Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Monday he was pleased with how things were going, particularly in what he saw as evidence of community and parent involvement. Im seeing small groups of kids being walked to school by their parents, or their older brothers or sisters, McCarthy told reporters. This goes to the heart of what weve been talking about since Ive been here, which is ... to me, this is an opportunity. This is true community policing. But crime statistics and shootings, like the one in the Uptown neighborhood last week along a Safe Passage route, only underline what parents say is a fact of life: Danger lurks. They will ride to school for the rest of their life, as long as Im in Chicago, Jennifer Press said, explaining her determination to keep her kids out of harms way and from gangs from preying on them. She was at Gresham Elementary to register her 4-year-old daughter there because the preKindergarten class at a school closer to her home is full. For her part, 9-year-old Kayla professed she wasnt worried about all the gangs and the dangers of the streets that shes heard her grandmother, Annie Stovall, and other grown-ups talk about as long as her grandmother and aunt who walked with her to school are nearby. Im going to be OK, as long as theyre with me, she said.
