PATFAHERTY Staff writerBeverly Hills vs. The Villages in pickle ball? It could happen. More local opportunities for seniors are just a part of Kurt McColleys vision for sports in Citrus County. McColleys admitted passion is youth basketball, an area he has been active in on state and local levels. His nonprofit organization, Hoops-Link-Inc., began as a youth basketball program built on his years of experience with the United States Specialty Sports Association, Florida Elite and the Citrus Wildcats. Ive become very involved on the state level in competitive basketball, both boys and girls, he said. And recently, he has been working with the county as it pursues sports tourism. He said they ran basketball tournaments here in the spring, bringing in about 75 teams. The next basketball tournament scheduled for late September is expected to attract 10 to 20 high school teams. He said serious athletes play year round, complementing their high school seasons with sanctioned events by other organizations. And this is where the opportunity lies, not just in basketball, but baseball, softball, flag football and other sports. Hoops-Link will be pursuing a wide range of Non-native bug introduces deadly fungusA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIts a speck of a beetle, barely as big as Abraham Lincolns nose on the penny, but the damage it is causing has reached epidemic proportions. It bores its way into the innards of a redbay tree through a pinholesized opening and goes on to introduce a fungus that moves to promptly kill the tree. The deadly fungus is called Laurel Wilt because redbays belong in the laurel family of trees. When the bark is peeled off an infected tree it reveals a dark brown wood rather than a lighter shade. The leaves also wilt brown. Redbays in the Southeastern U.S. are under assault from the ambrosia beetle said to originate from Asia. The fungus can kill nearly all mature redbay trees in a stand within three to five years, according to the Florida Forest Service. The service said at one site in Florida, mortality of monitored redbay trees greater than 1 inch in diameter increased from 10 percent to 92 percent in just 15 months. According to Kimberly Burch, the senior forester in Citrus County, entomologists began seeing dying redbays in southern South Carolina a decade ago and slowly the stand of wilted redbays began showing up southward into Florida. We first saw it in Citrus County on Gospel Island Road in 2009, Burch said.

As she approached, spectators waded into waist-high water and surrounded her, taking pictures and cheering her on. I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, youre never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport, but it is a team, she said on the beach. I have to say, Im a little bit out of it right now, Nyad said. She gestured toward her swollen lips, and simply said seawater. Her team said she had been slurring her words while she was out in the water.

sports events. Were going to start a flag football league in January, he said. This will develop a program and get it out there competing and building relationships just like we do in basketball. Were going to try this sport and that sport, and see what happens, he said. Well see what kind of reaction we get from the community and if there ever is a facility built, by the time we get there well know what will work. He agreed the county is well-set for outdoor fields, but indoor venues are lacking. However, the gyms that are here are good and close to each other, which simplifies tournament scheduling. Were looking to expand into many types of games and sports, he said, citing competitive badminton for seniors and pickle ball tournaments. Were going to explore that, he said. It may or may not work, but were going to find out. His next step is to reach out to people involved in all these various sports to start networking and set plans in motion. McColley also wants to organize a youth sports expo to bring all the various leagues and organizations together under one roof, providing an opportunity for interaction and sharing information. It would be amazing for the parents, he said. A great opportunity to see what all we have.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.A2TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000FSDD TEXT .

Stop in & see why relationships blossom daily.8733 West Yulee Drive, Homosassa000FVGC The fungus will attack what I will call the plumbing system of the tree and restrict the movement of water and food, Burch added. She said by disrupting the flow of the flow of nutrients in the stem of the tree, the fungus quickly kills it. A tree can die in a matter of weeks, Burch said. And, according to Burch, scientists are scrambling with pilot projects in hopes of coming up with a counter to arrest its spread. Researchers are currently using a fungicide, which is injected in the root system of the redbays to help prevent the fungus from getting a hold. Burch said that work has shown some promise, but so far nothing seems to be slowing the spread of the fungus. Eric Hoyer, an arborist and consultant with Natural Resource Planning Services Inc., said he and his wife first noticed the infestation in the county about two years ago. It is pretty bad in Fort Cooper State Park, Hoyer said. It kind of stands out when you see a lot of wilted brown leaves in a sea of green, he added. The rest of the state is not faring any better. Most of the states counties are showing signs of the fungus. I found out that Hernando County has also been affected. I think we are yet to get any confirmation of cases in Pasco County, which would make them the only county in this area that has not been affected, Burch said. She said a few counties in the southeast corner of the state have been spared so far. Laurel wilt is also known to attack avocado, sassafras and pondspice.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. KEEPING IT AT BAYThe following strategies may help reduce the spread and impact of laurel wilt: Avoid the movement of firewood, tree trimmings or m ulch from redbays and other laurel family hosts out of counties in which laurel wilt is known to occur. Avoid long-distance transport of firewood in general. Whenever possible, leave wood from dead and d ying redbays and other laurel family hosts on site instead of transporting it. If the wood is to be transported, dispose of it as locally as possible. Burying, covering, burning or chipping host tree material at its original site or a disposal site is pr eferable to leaving it intact in the open environment. Chipping wood from an infested tree might not destroy all of the ambrosia beetles due to their extremely small size, but should reduce the suitability of the wood as breeding material. Although the pathogen has not yet been documented to spr ead by this means, consider cleaning/sterilizing saws and pruning blades after cutting an infected tree and before using them on uninfected host tree species. Nursery stock in the laurel family showing signs of wilt, sapwood discoloration or ambrosia beetle attack should not be sold or transported, and should be reported to the division of plant industry. Preliminary research suggests that root-flare injections with the systemic fungicide propiconaz ole may help prevent development of laurel wilt in redbay trees.

Police officials said 23year-old Ronald Sexton had gone to a neighbors home early Monday with a pit bull dog and was yelling at the neighbors pit bull, which was inside a fenced yard. When the neighbor told Sexton to stop, police said Sexton pulled a handgun from his pants. The neighbor called 911. Police said when three officers arrived, they told Sexton to get on the ground. They said he began to comply but then pulled his gun and pointed it at one of the officers. They fired, killing him. The names of the officers have not been released. Under standard procedures, they were placed on paid leave while the shooting is investigated. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Journey Stories exhibit chronicles key moments in Americas historyERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS Imagine traveling hundreds of miles across diverse terrains in a horse and buggy. It may not be as tough for some to remember the first automobile to hit the roads. A Smithsonian exhibit Journey Storiesopened Saturday at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in Inverness which chronicles these key moments in Americas history through the migratory experience. Even though the modes of transportation have changed over time the reasons that people travel remains the same, said Kathy TurnerThompson, museum services manager. It is from a national perspective over all but it follows national and local history. I like to say all history begins locally. This talks about the Spanish, French and English exploration. Florida experienced all three. Journey Stories guides visitors from the arrival of immigrants on ships to wagon trains rolling westward, from railroads to farmers in rickety trucks during the 1930s. It also examines the growth and abolition of slavery. The collection is on loan from the Smithsonian Institution and a grant from the not-for-profit Florida Humanities Council paid for the Florida stops. This is the second one that we have had, Turner-Thompson said. We have been really fortunate to be able to get two because usually they only send these out to communities once. Journey Stories features photographs, paintings and written and audible accounts from colonial times through the westward expansion and beyond. It covers all of the different modes of travel and the people who left their native lands and came to the U.S. to settle, said Sharon Curtis of the exhibit. Turner-Thompson and Curtis invite the public to visit the exhibition and learn more about how the modes of transportation evolved. You are today what we were before, Curtis said. All of this coming before us helped create who and what we are today, but how many of us have seen it, understood it, appreciated it or paid attention to it. All of the hard work it took to claim this claim and develop this country. All of this before us is what created us today. The Smithsonian exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Oct. 12. Admission is free. For more information, call 352341-6436 or email Katherine.turner @bocc.citrus.fl.us.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or email@example.com.

Robert Truax, 76HOMOSASSA SPRINGSRobert Charles Truax, Commander, Ret., USN, was born Thursday, Oct. 15, 1936, to Clair and Muriel (Whitcomb) Truax in Rochester, Minn., and died peacefully on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013, in Homosassa Springs, Fla. Bob has been an inspiration to his family and friends during his life and was proud of his many military and civic accomplishments. He attended Rochester High School and then enlisted in the Minnesota National Guard in 1953, attaining the rank of sergeant. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1959, was later commissioned as an officer and completed training as a naval aviator, receiving his wings in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1959. Bob married Patricia Clark in 1960 in Jacksonville, Fla., and embarked on his career as a naval aviator in Pensacola, Fla. He was later stationed at the Bureau of Naval Personnel in Arlington, Va., and later in Long Beach, Calif. He completed missions between 1966 and 1968 in the South China Sea, aboard the carrier USS Kearsarge, air-traffic control officer. He flew P2V5-Fs and P-3 Orions for VP-16, VP-11. After his service during the Vietnam War, Bob served at various naval stations including Brunswick, Newport and Keflavik, Iceland, and final duty station in Washington, D.C. He was honorably discharged in 1979. Subsequent to his naval service, Bob held civilian positions with Information Spectrum Inc. in the D.C. area before retiring and moving to Inverness, Fla., in 1996. During his military career, Bob received a bachelors degree from the University of R.I. and a masters degree from Providence College in Rhode Island. In retirement, Bob was an active community leader: past president POA for Greenbrier II, 3rd Degree member of the Knights of Columbus, substitute teacher for Citrus County and past president MOAA, an active member of the American Legion and the Naval Aviators Association. Bob and Patricia enjoyed a full life, raising two children while serving and traveling with the U.S. Navy. Heidi (Truax) Radam, born in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1962 and Alan Scott Truax born in Orlando, Fla., in 1963. Heidi and Bob Radam reside in Virginia Beach, Va., Scott and Kathy Truax reside in Manassas, Va. Additionally, Bob is survived by grandchildren Robert Happ Radam, Walter Radam, Katie Anna Radam, Hanna Claire Truax and Holden Gower Truax; brothers David and Joseph (Minneapolis); sisters Evie (Michael) Showalter of Shawnee, Kan., and Mary (David) Michenfelder of St. Charles, Minn.; and dear friend Jan Torppa, Hernando, Fla. Words will scarcely describe the impact Bob has had on the lives of his family, friends and associates. He was universally known for his compassion and willingness to help in difficult circumstances. He had an ability to get involved, solve problems in a diplomatic way and volunteer his time whenever he could. He was devoted to his family and never missed an opportunity to unite with his immediate and extended relatives, and also his past squadron members. He will be missed. There will be a Memorial Service of Remembrance with military honors honoring Bobs life at Fero Funeral Home, 5955 N. Lecanto Highway, Beverly Hills, FL 34465 at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013.

US flag flies over NJ bridge FORT LEE, N.J. The largest free-flying American flag in the world flew over the George Washington Bridge in honor of Labor Day. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unfurled the flag Monday under the upper arch of the bridges New Jersey tower. Its meant to honor working men and women across the country. The flag is 90 feet long by 60 feet wide, with stripes measuring about 5 feet wide and stars about 4 feet in diameter. The Port Authority said the flag was flown from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday.Drug agents plumb call recordsSEATTLE Newly released documents show that, for at least six years, drug agents have had nearimmediate access to billions of phone call records dating back decades in a collaboration with AT&T that officials have taken pains to keep secret. The program, first reported Monday by The New York Times, is called the Hemisphere Project. Its paid for by the federal government, and it allows investigators armed with subpoenas to mine the companys vast database to help track down drug traffickers who frequently switch cellphones to avoid detection. Thats a different approach from that of the National Security Agency, which has come under fire for maintaining its own collections of call records. The Associated Press independently obtained a series of slides detailing the Hemisphere program. They show the database includes not just records of AT&T customers, but of any call that passes through an AT&T switch. Investigators who request searches of the database are instructed to never refer to Hemisphere in any official document.Hackers attack Marine website WASHINGTON A Marine Corps spokesman said the Marines recruiting website was tampered with and redirected temporarily, but no information was put at risk. The spokesman, Capt. Eric Flanagan, would not say who was responsible for the hacking, but the site was redirected to a message from the Syrian Electronic Army, a hacker group thats claimed responsibility for disrupting The New York Times website, Twitter and other media sites the group sees as sympathetic to Syrias rebels. The message to the Marine Corps was a plea for Americans to fight alongside the Syrian army and not aid the rebels. Regina Marshall, 97HOMOSASSARegina I. Marshall, 97, of Homosassa, passed away Sunday, Aug. 24, 2013, at her home in Sugarmill Woods.

she was taken by ambulance to a hospital. I just wanted to get out of the sun, she said. It was Nyads fifth try to complete the approximately 110-mile swim. She tried three times in 2011 and 2012. Her first attempt was in 1978. Its historic, marvelous, said Jose Miguel Diaz Escrich, the Hemingway Marina commodore who helped organize the Cuba side of Nyads multiple attempts. I always thought she could do it given her internal energy, her mental and physical strength, her will of iron, said Diaz Escrich, whom Nyad has described as a longtime friend. More than the athletic feat, she wants to send a message of peace, love, friendship and happiness ... between the people of the United States and Cuba, he said. Her last try was cut short amid boat trouble, storms, unfavorable currents and jellyfish stings that left her face puffy and swollen. This time, she wore a full bodysuit, gloves, booties and a mask at night, when jellyfish rise to the surface. The new silicone mask caused bruises inside her mouth, making it difficult for her to talk, she told her team when she was about 2 miles from land. Doctors traveling with Nyad were worried about her slurred speech and her breathing, but they didnt intervene, according to Nyads website. Nyads journey began Saturday morning when she jumped from the seawall of the Hemingway Marina into the warm waters off Havana. She stopped from time to time for nourishment, but she never left the water. The support team accompanying her had equipment that generated a faint electrical field around her, which was designed to keep sharks at bay. A boat also dragged a line in the water to help keep her on course. Sumaya Haddin, of Miami, had been tracking Nyads swim before her familys trip to Key West this weekend. She was surprised to see Nyads flotilla from a parasail off Smathers Beach on Monday morning. She thought Nyad wasnt due for another day. You couldnt see her, you could just see the boats. It was very exciting, she said. Haddin said Nyad still had her fighting spirit when she got to the beach. Getting into the ambulance, she had her peace sign up, her fist up. She was still fired up. Australian Susie Maroney successfully swam the Strait in 1997 with a shark cage, which besides protection from the predators, has a drafting effect that pulls a swimmer along. In 2012, Australian Penny Palfrey swam 79 miles toward Florida without a cage before strong currents forced her to abandon the attempt. This June, her countrywoman Chloe McCardel made it 11 hours and 14 miles before jellyfish stings ended her bid. In 1978, Walter Poenisch, an Ohio baker, claimed to have made the swim using flippers and a snorkel. Critics say there was insufficient independent documentation to verify his claim. Nyad first came to national attention in 1975 when she swam the 28 miles around the island of Manhattan in less than eight hours. In 1979, she swam the 102 miles from North Bimini, Bahamas, to Juno Beach in 27.5 hours. Nyad is also an author of three books, a motivational speaker and has been a reporter and commentator for NPR. on Crystal Rivers Conference Center, 9301 W. Fort Island Trail, Crystal River. This is our annual United Way kick-off, said United Way of Citrus County CEO Amy Meek. We have our kick-off every year. Typically, we have done a luncheon. Last year, we did a breakfast. It has always been the same thing. We really wanted to dress it up and do something different and fun. Another United Way has this event called the Moo Claw. Its a steak and crab claw theme. United Way is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with other local organizations in uniting efforts in fundraising and support in identifying and resolving pressing community issues while making measurable changes in Citrus County. Their main focus includes education, income and health. It will be a lot of fun and an opportunity for people to come out and have a good time and learn more about United Way and how they can get involved in the campaign this year, Meek said. The dinner and dancing event will fill every hungry belly with steak and crab claws while attendees learn more about United Way and the united efforts in Citrus County. The Suzanne Smith Band will then get everyone onto their feet to dance the night away. I hope to see a lot of great people there, Meek said, smiling. We already have a ton of great people registered from the community. But we would love to see some fresh faces people that maybe dont traditionally attend or people who want to find out more about United Way. Tickets are $75 per person or $700 per table, and all net proceeds benefit United Way of Citrus County. Reservations must be made by Sept. 10. What we are trying to do in the community is so big that it is going to take all of us, Meek said. Its not just one person or organization that can make it happen.

Common Core doomed to failA major federal program is being promoted in our education system. Its title is Common Core Curriculum. The expressed intent of the program sounds good. However, just as in any government program, there are details that we are expected to just not concern ourselves with; then, when the problems arise, the solution will naturally be that we must spend more money on the program. Never mind that the actual problem is not addressed. The program, on the surface, would put the same subject matter in every grade in every school at the same time. That way when a student moves from one school to another everything will match. However, we all know that could not happen unless all schools are required to teach to the lowest common denominator. Some schools are far superior to other schools. Any effort to change that always has the effect of lowering standards. Of course, the education experts would insist that lowering the standards would promote greater self-esteem. How many kids, when they become adults and have learned the minimum or less, have great self-esteem? The parts of the program that are not being openly discussed are the ones of greater concern. As best I can tell, the old School to Work plan will show up in some form. Several years ago, when I was a candidate for state representative, someone suggested I inquire about School to Work at the Missouri Department of Education. I was told that they knew nothing about it. When I was told to ask about Missouris Roadway to Success, I immediately received the document. In the first paragraph it mentioned School to Work prominently. The major thrust of the program was to steer students by middle school to occupations chosen by the education system and channel the students on this path through the remaining years of primary and secondary education. Employers were to be given quotas for hiring the students being trained. This system appears to likely be part of the plan for Common Core: It is doomed to failure. One only has to look at what happened in the recent economic downturn to see the problems. If thousands of machine operators are trained in the schools and the many factories are assigned these students, naturally the federal government will demand that the employers hire these students. If the business volume does not support such hiring, then the plan would be to subsidize the industry. How well do you think that will work? Let the school system develop winning curriculums and move education forward.Robert E. Hagaman HomosassaEducation system inferiorPat Deutschman offered up another of her effusive pieces. Titled, Tests failing students, she left out the usual ooeygooey, fuzzy-wuzzy hokum and went hardball. She railed that the dirty, heartless rascals at the state Board of Education turned her Lake Woebegone school district into Gone with the Wind when they lowered its rating from A to B. In switching from the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test to the new Common Core Standards Test, a realignment took place. Common Core has tougher standards. We hear a great deal about standardized tests most of it bad and most of it political but few people know why or how they came into existence. Back in the 1960s, it became obvious that students entering college were less prepared than those of the past. The problem was also showing up on international academic tests and recognized by business and community leaders. In 1983, the National Commission on Excellence in Education issued A Nation at Risk. In frank terms, it spelled out how inferior our public education system had become. This report impacted the country in profound ways. The Excellence in Education Movement was born. It needed a way to measure a students academic proficiency and standardized tests evolved from this basic necessity. Now back to Ms. Deutschmans piece. She writes, Enough is enough. Our students, despite what popular radio pundits profess, are equally competitive with students from other countries given the same demographics. Here are a few countries that routinely outperform our students: Russia, China, Singapore, England, Hong Kong and Korea. There are about 15 more; all have demographics to deal with. As for the radio pundits, theyve aligned themselves with a rather large group. The following is a partial list of agencies, commissions, groups and think tanks going back to 1980 which conducted studies and issued reports in an attempt to address this crisis: U.S. Department of Education, Education Commission of the States, National Council on Education Standards, National Governors Association, American Education Research Association, American Federation of Teachers, National Center on Education and the Economy, Andrew Mellon Foundation, National Assessment of Education Progress, National Education Goals Panel, Presidents Education Policy Advisory committee, Brookings Institution, Education Policy Advisory Committee, Coalition of Essential Schools, Council for Basic Education, Council of Chief State School Officers, Education Excellence Network, Education Leaders Council, Thomas B.

An hour later, after falling asleep, the phone rings. Its the power company. They woke us up to tell us the power would not be on until 4 oclock. It came on about 7 this morning. Its really laughable. Theyre calling us to say it wont be on for another few hours and waking us out of a sound sleep.Why the half day?Id like to know why the kids got off a half a day today and none of the parents were told about it.

Look in the mirrorIn todays Chronicle dated Aug. 15, Joe Meek stated, Its time for you to do something other than just be against everything. Well, Meek, it seems you vote for everything. Nothing is too expensive for you. Spend, spend, spend thats your motto. Instead of listening to the voters, you and your thugs do whatever it takes to bankrupt Citrus County. So before you criticize Adams about not voting to your liking, you should look in the mirror and see the guy who spends money like there is no tomorrow. And the way you spend money, there will be no tomorrow.Doesnt feel goodLet me see if I have this straight: Commission Chairman Joe Meek expects the taxpayers to feel warm and fuzzy because this 30 percent tax hike will in reality be less than that because our property values are plummeting. So we are supposed to feel good that our No. 1 investment, our homes, are worth half as much as they were six years ago. And if and when our home values come back up, does anyone expect Mr. Meek to adjust the millage rate back to 2012 levels? Of course not. Commissioners will take that added revenue and build another road to nowhere or a port we dont want and cant use or maybe a county space station.Taxes up, up, upWake up, Joe. So, Mr. Meek, youre telling us that our taxes are going up but not to worry because our home values are going down? So what happens when values start going back up? Will our new tax be going away? Not! OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 Ode to a fallen brotherEven though its been sometime after we lost you, the pain is as real as it was that very day you were taken from us. As for myself Im still struggling, Shaun. Struggling to be a whole person. I think back to the fun times we had and wonder where the time went. No longer will those inside jokes be spoken again and no longer will the camera film a shot the same way again. Even more, I still find it a struggle to be a good husband and father because I feel this emptiness inside of me, even though Im not alone in anyway. I still feel the emptiness because youre not here. But the pain and loss is felt even more when I look into your sons little eyes. When I see pictures of him or hear of him reaching a new milestone, you should be the one there to witness it. I hope sometime in his young life, when you were still with us, he was able to take a mental picture of you in his mind and heart. The one burning question I do have for myself is why. Why do I find in my heart that Im to blame? Is it because Im the older brother and so Im supposed to protect and care for the younger? But Im trying, Shaun; God knows Im trying to bring it all together as the time passes. I will keep on without you, although Ill hate every day of it, but I must do it for my wife and kids. I will get our movie done no matter what. As for our trials, endeavors, and the fun times we shared together, I shall hold onto those memories with an iron grip and make new ones in your honor. Who knows, maybe Ill write a book about us? Who knows little bro, who knows. Until we meet again, Your brother BillyBilly Baxter Jr. Crystal River WASHINGTONBarack Obamas foreign policy dream cordial relations with a Middle East tranquilized by smart diplomacy is in a death grapple with reality. His rhetorical writhings illustrate the perils of loquacity. He has a gluttons rather than a gourmets appetite for his own rhetorical cuisine, and has talked America to the precipice of a fourth military intervention in the crescent that extends from Libya to Afghanistan. Characterizing the 2011 Libyan project with weirdly passive syntax (It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions), he explained his sashay into Libyas civil war as pre-emptive: I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action. With characteristic self-satisfaction, Obama embraced the doctrine R2P responsibility to protect civilians and Libya looked like an opportunity for an inexpensive morality gesture using high explosives. Last August, R2P reappeared when he startled his staff by offhandedly saying of Syrias poison gas: A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. The interesting metric whole bunch made his principle mostly a loophole and advertised his reluctance to intervene, a reluctance more sensible than his words last week: Syrias recidivism regarding gas is going to require Americas attention and hopefully the entire international communitys attention. Regarding that entirety: If community connotes substantial shared values and objectives, what community would encompass Denmark, Congo, Canada, North Korea, Portugal, Cuba, Norway, Iran, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Poland and Yemen? Words, however, are so marvelously malleable in the Obama administration, the Oxford English Dictionarys definition of coup (a change in the government carried out violently or illegally) somehow does not denote what happened in Egypt. Last week, an Obama spokesman said: We have made the determination that making a decision about whether or not a coup occurred is not in the best interests of the United States. So convinced is this White House of its own majesty and of the consequent magic of its words, it considers this a clever way of saying the law is a nuisance. Section 508 of the Foreign Assistance Act forbids aid to any country whose duly elected head of government is deposed by military coup until the president determines that a democratically elected government has been restored. Secretary of State John Kerry was perhaps preparing to ignore this when he said something Egypts generals have not had the effrontery to claim that the coup amounted to restoring democracy. Perhaps Section 508 unwisely abridges presidential discretion in foreign policy, where presidents arguably deserve the almost unfettered discretion they, with increasing aggressiveness, assert everywhere. And perhaps if Obama were not compiling such a remarkable record of indifference to law, it would be sensible to ignore his ignoring of this one. But remember Libya. Since the War Powers Resolution was passed over Richard Nixons veto in 1973, presidents have at least taken care to act consistent with its limits on unilateral presidential war-making. Regarding Libya, however, Obama was unprecedentedly cavalier, even though he had ample time to act consistent with the Constitution by involving a supportive Congress. As Yale Law Schools Bruce Ackerman then argued: Obama has overstepped even the dubious precedent set when President Bill Clinton bombed Kosovo in 1999. Then, the Justice Departments Office of Legal Counsel asserted that Congress had given its consent by appropriating funds for the Kosovo campaign. It was a big stretch, given the actual facts but Obama cant even take advantage of this same desperate expedient, since Congress has appropriated no funds for the Libyan war. The president is simply using money appropriated to the Pentagon for general purposes to conduct the current air campaign. Obama is as dismissive of red lines he draws as he is of laws others enact. Last week, a State Department spokeswoman said his red line regarding chemical weapons was first crossed a couple of months ago and the president took action presumably, announcing (non-lethal) aid to Syrian rebels although were not going to outline the inventory of what we did. The administration now would do well to do something that the head of it has an irresistible urge not to do: Stop talking. If a fourth military intervention is coming, it will not be to decisively alter events, which we cannot do, in a nation vital to U.S. interests, which Syria is not. Rather, its purpose will be to rescue Obama from his words. George Wills email address is email@example.com.

Inverness City Council voted recently to adopt an agreement with SS Solutions, a staff leasing company based in St. Augustine. The company specializes in providing government agencies with personnel, especially employees in the Florida Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP) who have reached their mandatory retirement date and desire to keep working in their same position without incurring a financial penalty. The move will allow DiGiovanni to continue training his successor and building the team that will lead the city in the coming years. DiGiovanni would also like to see through a number of projects he has begun, including the restoration of the Valerie Theater, various streetscaping plans and the continued revitalization of the downtown area. There is a lot to be done, but DiGiovannis vision in the past has been so true it is hard for anyone to doubt he will succeed in the next few years. His plan, for now, is to work another three years and see how it goes and whether he will need to stay a full five more years. The council has been effusive in their praise of DiGiovanni and the job hes done managing the city. And for his part, DiGiovanni is a great advocate for Inverness. DiGiovanni knows there will be change when he leaves; however, having these extra years will ensure that change is positive. THE ISSUE:Frank DiGiovanni staying on.OUR OPINION:This move is good for Inverness.

Ive been critical of the sheriff taking over the fire department right from the beginning when he announced he could run it more economically. After reading the Chronicle interview, I wonder how Dawsy could have the audacity, nerve, gall and egobuilding need to take over the reins of the fire department from Chief (Morabito). Whose bright idea was this besides Dawsys? Did it come from the commissioners? Who voted on this? I vote to give fire department back to Chief Morabito.Investigate ordinanceThis is to answer the Awakened by mowers article that was in Sundays paper (Aug. 18). If you are so concerned about being woken up, why dont you call the sheriffs department and find out what the ordinance is instead of asking somebody else to do it for you? Either that or maybe youre not really afraid of being woken up. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects.

Enforce restrictionsIm calling about the article in the Greenbelt Gazette regarding deed restrictions, the hidden costs. I read this article and what I got from this is that these violators are being let go or not pursued because of the costs of pursuing the rules and regulations in Sugarmill. And this to me is an open invitation for anybody that is in violation to wait the association out, because they say they cant afford to prosecute or do anything about violations of the deed restrictions in Sugarmill. And I dont understand why they posted this in the Greenbelt ( Gazette). It just gives ammunition to the violators to do what they do. And as far as Sugarmill itself, I see deterioration of what this environment used to look like. Shucks, HuckWhen Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, was published, most critics failed to review it. The Concord, Mass., public library banned it from its shelves. They felt it as trash and suitable only for the slums. That committee would faint at the books available in todays libraries.Dont be sillyThis is in response to the letter (Thumbs down for feral cats decision) on Aug. 20 by Judy Staples concerning the decision on political correctness for the good of the government laws on the feral cat issue. She spoke about people voting for intelligent politicians. I think thats an oxymoron.Miss local weatherDoes anyone know how we can contact Bright House cable Channel 63, the Weather Channel? We used to have a real good local On the 8s. Now they show everywhere but (it) doesnt show Citrus County. We sure miss that. We depended a lot on that Citrus County weather report. Id sure like to call them or something to tell them to put it back on.Editors note: Contact The Weather Channel at 770-226-0000.Thanks!I would like to say thank you to the Citrus Family Center in Lecanto for helping more than 100 kids and families (by) providing school supplies and bicycle helmets. Helicopter leads to money pitThats a really bad idea from Sheriff Jeff Dawsy to use his helicopter for an air ambulance service. First of all, government should never compete with private industry, saying they can provide a cheaper service. Thats not how our country is supposed to work, and only powergrubbing politicians dare to suggest that it should operate in that manner. I wish our local officials would quit wasting money on boondoggles to that capital of socialism, Broward County, looking for really bad ideas. We dont have the tax base to operate like they do down there. Second of all, government is an extremely poor user of resources. There is nothing government does that private industry doesnt do better, cheaper, and more efficiently. Line dancing classes at the IRS is just a small example. Government at all levels has inflated salaries, overly generous benefit packages and retirement obligations that are crippling American cities, counties and states. For Dawsy to suggest he can provide an air ambulance service cheaper than private companies is absurd. He demonstrated a couple of election cycles ago that he has no clue of the helicopters true operating costs, throwing out a number thousands of dollars an hour too low. Part of his inability to understand how much that helicopter really costs to operate is government doesnt use or understand depreciation. They have an unlimited source of funds in the taxpayer, so why worry about replacing equipment. Private industry realizes that things wear out and they need to have capital available to replace used-up and obsolete equipment. Fixed-wing aviation operates under a maintenance system called IRAN, which means inspect, repair as necessary. Rotary-wing aviation operates under a maintenance system called TBO, which means time before overhaul. Every part on a helicopter has a useful life designated in hours of operation. When it reaches that number, it must be completely overhauled or replaced. If you take an 8-year-old helicopter that you really cant put a correct cost number to, and double its use, your maintenance expenses are going to increase exponentially. Dont even mention crew costs. They are going to increase tenfold. The $20,000 helicopter rides cited in the article are just an example of what happens with government meddling in our medical system. The article does go on to suggest most bills are settled for much less. I recently ran up a $100,000 hospital bill and I didnt even stay the night. I was in at 6 a.m. and out by 2 p.m. The hospital settled for $8,000. At that discount rate, the helicopter ride is worth about $1,600. The sheriff has a small single-engine helicopter, and this service is best provided with a twinengine craft for safety reasons. That will of course provide a reason to upgrade the helicopter. I see where this idea is going. I hope the rest of you do, also. I have no idea of the qualifications of the officers flying the sheriffs helicopter, but that enters into the equation also. Many law enforcement agencies tend to train law enforcement personnel to fly instead of hiring highly qualified aviators. As a result, the law enforcement pilots tend to be inexperienced compared to a military-trained aviator.

The formula, called Cinnatrol promotes healthy blood sugar levels by effectively metabolizing glucose into energy. In a research study, all patients taking just one capful of the liquid (one ounce) daily, dramatically lowered their blood sugar levels compared to a placebo group. Another scientific study found that an ingredient in Cinnatrol made insulin 20 times more capable of converting blood sugar to energy. While individual results vary, one patient in the study lowered his blood sugar from 220-245 to the 100-130 range in only 28 days, despite being instructed not to change his dietary habits or physical activity. Some patients, under their doctors care, have been able to reduce or eliminate their need for diabetic drugs. Scientists say that Cinnatrol helps diabetic drugs to work more efficiently. Study results can be found at www.cinnatrol.com Cinnatrol is available without a prescription at pharmacies and nutrition stores or call 877-581-1502.

Cops: NY tot shot in stroller NEW YORK Police investigating the death of a 1year-old boy who was shot in his stroller during a walk on a city street believe his father was the intended target, Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Monday. Authorities have some leads in the killing of Antiq Hennis in Brooklyn on Sunday night and believe his death may be gang-related, Kelly said. Antiqs father, Anthony Hennis, had just gone to pick up the boy at the home of the babys mother, Cherise Miller, and take him to visit Hennis grandmother, Kelly said. Hennis, 21, put the boy in the stroller and was pushing him across a street in the Brownsville neighborhood when shots rang out at about 7:20 p.m., police said.Six dead in Pa. head-on crashKANE, Pa. A 12-yearold cheerleader with an infectious smile and a 6-year-old boy described as a scrappy competitor in a variety of sports are among six people killed in a headon crash on a northwestern Pennsylvania highway. State police in McKean County said a sport utility vehicle crossed the center line Saturday afternoon and hit an approaching sedan in Allegheny National Forest, killing 6-year-old Jarrett Costanzo and 12-year-old Olivia Douglas and injuring two other people. Also killed were four St. Marys residents in the car: Gary Beimel, 62, David Cuneo, 54, Elaine Beimel, 55, and Florence Donachy, 81.

World BRIEFS Syria warns of war Associated PressPARIS Syrias president warned Monday that the Middle East is a powder keg and potential Western military strikes against his country risk triggering a regional war. In an interview with French newspaper Le Figaro, Bashar Assad also was quoted as saying that Syria has challenged the U.S. and France to provide proof to support their allegations that Damascus has used chemical weapons, but that the leaders of both countries have been incapable of doing that, including before their own peoples. President Barack Obama and his French counterpart, Francois Hollande, have accused Assads regime of carrying out a deadly chemical attack against rebel-held suburbs of Damascus on Aug. 21. The Syrian government denies the allegations, and blames opposition fighters. Obama initially seemed poised to launch military action, but abruptly announced on Saturday he would first ask Congress for authorization. Hollande also has called for a forceful response against Assad, but is awaiting a decision from Washington first. If the U.S. and France decide to strike, Assad said everyone will lose control of the situation. Chaos and extremism will spread. The risk of a regional war exists, he added. Asked whether France, which has been a staunch supporter of the opposition, has become an enemy of Syria, Assad said that whoever contributes financially and militarily to terrorists is an enemy of the Syrian people. The French people are not our enemy, but the policy of their government is hostile to the Syrian people. Insofar as French government policy is hostile to the Syrian people, this state will be its enemy, he said. Bashar Assadpresident of Syria. Assad: Risk of regional conflict if West strikes in Middle East Special courts for veterans expanding across US Associated PressPHILADELPHIA Former National Guardsman Paul Piscitelli is in Philadelphia Municipal Court to answer to drug and theft charges. Elijah Peters, who served in the Army in Afghanistan and Iraq, was arrested twice for assault. Like all the defendants appearing before Judge Patrick Dugan on a recent Wednesday, Piscitelli and Peters are veterans who chose to have their cases handled in a special court established for those formerly in the military. More than justice is meted out. Before the judge takes the bench, a volunteer approaches the veterans one by one, offering help with such things as rsumwriting and job hunting. A second volunteer steers them to longdistance runs and fitness classes. A representative from a community college discusses the advantages of higher education. Theres also a worker from the local Veterans Affairs medical center whos checking to make sure defendants are getting doctor appointments, disability benefits, housing vouchers or any other benefit to which theyre entitled. This is the touchy, feely, kissy, huggy court, explained Janet DiTomasso, who helps administer the Philadelphia court. The veterans court operates under the philosophy that many of the defendants who have run into trouble with the law need treatment, not incarceration. Some courts only take misdemeanor cases. Some only handle veterans who received an honorable discharge. The Philadelphia court has set few limits. The city has been at the forefront of an experiment that has mushroomed across the nation. In 2008, there were just five veterans courts in the United States. By the end of last year, there were 166. Dugan, the judge, is an Army Reserve captain who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He has been at the helm of the court from the start. The veterans who appear before him face a range of charges that stem primarily from substance abuse. Sometimes that abuse started in the military. Sometimes, it was a problem before a veteran ever thought about enlisting. Dugan is determined to give them a second chance, and sometimes a third or a fourth.

ON THE NET Justice for Vets: www .justiceforvets.org Flu vaccines get a boost Some promise more protectionLAURANNEERGAARD AP medical writerWASHINGTON Flu vaccination is no longer merely a choice between a jab in the arm or a squirt in the nose. This fall, some brands promise a little extra protection. For the first time, certain vaccines will guard against four strains of flu rather than the usual three. Called quadrivalent vaccines, these brands may prove more popular for children than their parents. Thats because kids tend to catch the newly added strain more often. These four-in-one vaccines are so new that theyll make up only a fraction of the nations supply of flu vaccine, so if you want a dose, better start looking early. But thats only one of an unprecedented number of flu vaccine options available this year. Allergic to eggs? Egg-free shots are hitting the market, too. Plus theres growing interest in shots brewed just for the 65and-older crowd, and a brand that targets the needle-phobic with just a skin-deep prick. Were moving away from the one-size-fits-all to choosing the best possible vaccine for an individuals age and condition, said Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious disease specialist at the Mayo Clinic. The flip side of that, he said, is that this will be a confusing year as doctors and consumers alike try to choose. Federal health officials recommend a yearly flu vaccine for nearly everyone, starting at 6 months of age. On average, about 24,000 Americans die each flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some questions and answers about the different vaccine varieties to choose from: Q: Whats the difference between those new four-strain vaccines and the regular kind? A: For more than 30 years, the vaccine has offered protection against three influenza strains two common Type A strains called H1N1 and H3N2, and one strain of Type B. Flu strains continually evolve, and the recipe for each years vaccine includes the subtypes of those strains that experts consider most likely to cause illness that winter. Type A flu causes more serious disease and deaths, especially the H3N2 form that made last year such a nasty flu season. But the milder Type B flu does sicken people every year as well, and can kill. Two distinct Type B families circulate the globe, making it difficult to know which to include in each years vaccine. Adding both solves the guesswork, and a CDC model estimates it could prevent as many as 485 deaths a year depending on how much Type B flu is spreading. Q: How can I tell if Im getting the four-strain vaccine? A: All of the nasal spray version sold in the U.S. this year will be this new variety, called FluMist Quadrivalent. The catch is that the nasal vaccine is only for healthy people ages 2 to 49 who arent pregnant. If you prefer a flu shot, ask the doctor or pharmacist if the four-strain kind is available. Younger children, older adults, pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions all can use flu shots. Fourstrain versions are sold under the names Fluzone Quadrivalent, Fluarix Quadrivalent and FluLaval Quadrivalent. Manufacturers anticipate producing between 135 million and 139 million doses of flu vaccine this year. Only about 30 million doses will offer the four-strain protection. Q: How soon should I be vaccinated? A: Early fall is ideal, as its impossible to predict when flu will start spreading and it takes about two weeks for protection to kick in. But later isnt too late; flu season typically peaks in January or February. Q: How much does flu vaccine cost? A: The vaccine is covered by insurance, and Medicare and some plans dont require a copay. Drugstore vaccination programs tend to charge about $30; expect the quadrivalent versions to be slightly more expensive. Q: Who should seek it? A: Type B flu tends to strike children more than the middle-aged, Poland noted. And he said its not a bad idea for seniors, who are more vulnerable to influenza in general. But the CDC doesnt recommend one vaccine variety over another, and the American Academy of Pediatrics said either kind is fine just get vaccinated.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 TV, lottery/B3 Auto racing/B4 College football/B4 Sports briefs/ B4 Final in-state showdown between Florida and Miami? / B4 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Stenson finally cashes in at TPC Boston Earns first trophy of a stellar golf season Associated PressNORTON, Mass. A great summer of golf finally paid off for Henrik Stenson. Stenson made three straight birdies to race by a fast-fading Sergio Garcia, and he holed a bunker shot for birdie on the 17th hole to turn back a final threat from Steve Stricker and win the Deutsche Bank Championship. Stenson was runner-up in the British Open and a World Golf Championship, and he tied for third at the PGA Championship. All that was missing was a trophy, and he took care of that on Labor Day at the soggy TPC Boston by closing with a 5-under 66 for a two-shot win over Stricker. The 37-year-old Swede moved to the top of the FedEx Cup standings after two playoff events, assuring him his first trip to the Tour Championship and a clear shot at the $10 million prize. Im just pleased I won here, said Stenson, who tied the tournament record at 22-under 262. This was a big goal of mine to win a golf tournament after all those nice finishes. My family is here. Im going to see my kids in a little bit. Its all good. Stensons win was only part of the high drama Monday, so much that Tiger Woods became an afterthought. He closed with a 73 and tied for 65th. The best image of him all day was walking back out to the course after a rain delay with he and his 6-year-old daughter dressed in matching red. Brendan Steele thought his season was over when the final round was halted for two hours because of rain. Steele made a birdie putt on the 15th when play resumed, hit a 9-iron to 2 feet for birdie on the 16th and closed with two more birdies to sneak into the top 70 in the FedEx Cup and advance to the third playoff event in two weeks at Conway Farms north of Chicago. Federer stunned at US Open Associated PressNEW YORK Right from the start, Roger Federer looked very little like, well, the Roger Federer who routinely reached the final weekend at Grand Slam tournaments. In the opening game of his fourth-round match at the U.S. Open, the owner of 17 major titles got passed at the net twice, sailed a backhand long, then missed two forehands to get broken. In the second game, the man who has spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than anyone else dumped a backhand into the net, then shanked two other backhands several feet wide. No longer the dominant presence he once was, Federer lost in the round of 16 at Flushing Meadows for the first time in a decade, surprisingly beaten 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-4 by 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain on Monday night. I kind of self-destructed, which is very disappointing, said Federer, who made 43 unforced errors and managed to convert only 2 of 16 break points. It was a frustrating performance. Only the latest in a series. This caps a poor-byhis-standards Grand Slam season for Federer, whose record trophy collection includes five from the U.S. Open. Revis likely to start Sunday Associated PressTAMPA Darrelle Revis likely will make his debut for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the star cornerbacks old team, the New York Jets. Although theres been no official announcement, the three-time All-Pro has been practicing without any reported setbacks and teammates are confident Revis will start Sundays season opener. Were going to have all our pieces, finally, and it should be good, defensive end Adrian Clayborn said Monday. Well see. Revis is recovering from knee surgery that sidelined him most of last season with the Jets. The Bucs gradually increased his workload in practice during training camp, however the seventh-year pro did not see any game action during the preseason. Coach Greg Schiano is not concerned. The objective since late April, when Revis was acquired in exchange for the 13th overall pick in the draft, has been to not rush the rehabilitation process in hopes of having him ready to face his old team. As long as there are no setbacks that remains the plan, Schiano said. Revis and All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson were brought in this offseason to bolster a secondary that nearly set a NFL record for passing yards allowed in 2012. Revis was given a new six-year, $96 million contract, and Goldson received a five-year, $41.25 deal in free agency after helping San Francisco reach the Super Bowl last season. Rookie Johnthan Banks, a second-round draft pick competing for the cornerback job on the side opposite Revis, feels the secondary has played together enough in practice to be Darrelle Revis See REVIS/ Page B3 Associated PressHenrik Stenson raises his club Monday after making birdie from the bunker on the 17th green during the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass.

Winston was nearly flawless, completing 25 of 27 passes and running for 25 yards and a score as the Seminoles gave the Panthers a rude welcome to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 126 yards and a score and Nick OLeary hauled in three touchdown passes for Florida State. The Panthers had been pointing to the opener from the moment the program announced the move from the Big East to the ACC nearly two years ago. Playing in front of a rare sell-out, Pitt simply couldnt keep up with the defending league champions. Tom Savage passed for 201 yards and a touchdown for Pitt but also threw a pair of interceptions. Or, as many interceptions as Winston had incompletions. Winston won the starting job during training camp, edging out Jacob Coker to become just the third freshman to start a season opener for the Seminoles. Dont plan on him giving up the gig anytime soon. A star outfielder on the school baseball team, Winston is considered the latest in a line of two-sport threats at Florida State, a list that includes Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders and 1992 Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward. Ward, however, didnt become a star until he finally cracked the starting lineup as a junior. Winston appears to already be there a game into his career. Winston connected on his first 11 passes, missing on his 12th when wide receiver Kenny Shaw couldnt quite get his right foot all the way inbounds. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound kid from Hueytown, Ala., nicknamed Famous Jameis did a little bit of everything. Twice he pulled himself free from a defensive linemans grasp to find a receiver downfield. He converted a first-and-28 with a 36-yard strike to Greene and even served as the lead blocker for Devonta Freeman when the running back broke into the secondary. Pitts defense, which ranked 17th in the country last season, appeared unsure on how to stop him. Wary of the speed of Florida States wide receivers, the Panthers gave Greene and company plenty of room to maneuver.

Associated PressBOSTON Doug Fister rebounded from a miserable start with seven shutout innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Monday in a matchup of teams with the ALs best records. The Tigers won despite missing Miguel Cabrera for the third straight game. He has been sidelined by a strained abdomen, though general manager Dave Dombrowski said the star has been more hampered by a groin problem. Prince Fielder and Andy Dirks each drove in a run for the AL Central-leading Tigers, who won for the fourth time in five games. The AL East-leading Red Sox lost for just the second time in nine games.American League Yankees 9, White Sox 1NEW YORK Derek Jeter ended a slump with two hits and two RBIs, Alex Rodriguez reached base twice in an eight-run fourth inning and the New York Yankees battered the Chicago White Sox 9-1 in a game interrupted nearly two hours by rain.

Coco Crisp hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the fifth that was confirmed by a video review, and the Oakland Athletics pulled into a first-place tie with Texas atop the AL West by beating the Rangers 4-2. Yoenis Cespedes homered leading off the second inning and Chris Young added an RBI single in Oaklands fourth straight win. Crisp homered for the third straight game to help the As (79-58) move a season-best 21 games over .500.Royals 3, Mariners 1KANSAS CITY, Mo. Felix Hernandez lost his fourth straight start and Will Smith struck out a career high eight to help the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1. The Mariners right-hander hadnt lost four straight starts since 2008. He also left in the seventh inning with a cramp in his lower back. Smith (2-1) pitched 4 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to pick up the victory.Twins 10, Astros 6HOUSTON Rookie Chris Colabello homered twice, including a tiebreaking grand slam in the ninth inning, to lift the Minnesota Twins to a 10-6 win over the Houston Astros. It was the first career grand slam for Colabello, who ended an 0-for-23 skid with a single on Sunday.National League Braves 13, Mets 5ATLANTA Freddie Freeman homered, doubled and tied a career high with five RBIs, powering the Atlanta Braves past the New York Mets 13-5. Freeman put the Braves ahead with a two-run double off Daisuke Matsuzaka in the first inning. Freeman made it 6-1 with a three-run homer a dozen rows deep into the right-field seats in the second. Jordan Schafer got four hits and stole three bases for Atlanta before leaving with a lower back strain. Andrelton Simmons drove in three runs.Marlins 4, Cubs 3CHICAGO Henderson Alvarez hit his first career home run and pitched six innings before exiting with a hamstring injury, and the Miami Marlins beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3. Alvarez smacked a three-run shot off Travis Wood in the second inning and also had a single and a sacrifice bunt. Alvarez (3-3) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings before he left with a tight right hamstring in his first career appearance against the Cubs. Steve Cishek earned his 29th save in 31 chances for the Marlins.Reds 7, Cardinals 2CINCINNATI Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto homered as Cincinnati roughed up Adam Wainwright for the second start in a row, leading Mat Latos and the Reds to a 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the opener of a four-game series between the NL Central rivals. Latos (14-5) gave up four hits in his first complete game of the season.Pirates 5, Brewers 2MILWAUKEE Neil Walker hit a three-run homer, Charlie Morton pitched seven strong innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat Milwaukee 5-2 to retake the NL Central lead. The Pirates moved one game ahead of St. Louis, which lost earlier in the day at Cincinnati. Morton (7-3) gave up seven hits and one earned run. He walked two and struck out six while winning his fourth straight decision. Mark Melancon pitched the ninth for his 10th save in 12 chances.Padres 4, Giants 1SAN DIEGO Ian Kennedy beat an NL West opponent for the first time in 12 starts this season, pitching the San Diego Padres past the San Francisco Giants 4-1. Huston Street worked a spotless ninth to earn his 26th save in 27 chances.Dodgers 10, Rockies 8DENVER Clayton Kershaw surrendered a career-high 11 hits in five shaky innings and got the win and Yasiel Puig scored the go-ahead run before leaving with a strained right knee as the surging Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 10-8. Puig was called out for interference on the bases in the first inning. He then hurt his knee on an awkward slide into third base and gingerly jogged home on Hanley Ramirezs sacrifice fly in the sixth, before being replaced in right field.Phillies 3, Nationals 2PHILADELPHIA Carlos Ruiz hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Philadelphias two-run eighth inning, helping the Phillies edge the Washington Nationals 3-2. Cesar Hernandez started the winning rally with a two-out walk against Tyler Clippard (6-3). He came around to score on Jimmy Rollins double. After Chase Utley was walked intentionally, Ruiz drove in Rollins with a single to left. B.J. Rosenberg (1-0) recorded the final out of the eighth for the win and Jonathan Papelbon finished for his 24th save in 30 chances.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE He exited in the semifinals at the Australian Open in January, the quarterfinals at the French Open in early June, and the second round of Wimbledon against a player ranked 116th, to boot in late June. That ended Federers record run of reaching at least the quarterfinals at 36 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments. Now, thanks to Robredo, Federer has a new, unwanted streak: Two consecutive losses before the quarterfinals at majors. This is the first season since 2002 that Federer did not reach at least one final at any of the four Grand Slam tournaments. That year also marked the last time Federer was ranked lower than he is now at No. 7. The story of my life: When I lose, people are shell-shocked to see me play this way, Federer said. Heading into Monday, the buzz at the U.S. Open was all about looking ahead to a potential quarterfinal between Federer and his nemesis, Rafael Nadal. Owners of a combined 29 Grand Slam trophies, they have played each other 31 times including in eight major finals but never in New York. Federers loss means they wont fix that gap in their rivalry this week. When Federers match was ending, the second-seeded Nadal was just getting started in Arthur Ashe Stadium, and the Spaniard wound up improving to 19-0 on hard courts in 2013 with a 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 victory over 22nd-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany. Nadal, who won the 2010 U.S. Open but missed it last year with a left knee injury, erased the only break point he faced against Kohlschreiber and has not lost a service game so far through four matches. In the three womens matches that were played Monday, No. 10 Roberta Vinci and unseeded Flavia Pennetta set up an all-Italian quarterfinal with victories. Vinci beat yet another woman from Italy, 136th-ranked qualifier Camila Giorgi, 6-4, 6-2, while Pennetta defeated No. 21 Simona Halep of Romania 6-2, 7-6 (3). Azarenka or Ivanovic will face Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia, who got past American wild-card entry Alison Riske, a 23-year-old who grew up in Pittsburgh, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2. In mens action, No. 4 David Ferrer of Spain, the runner-up to Nadal at the French Open this year, moved on by beating No. 18 Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia 7-6 (2), 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3). In the quarterfinals, Ferrer will play No. 8 Richard Gasquet, who entered the day 1-15 in fourth-round Grand Slam matches but erased a match point and withstood 39 aces from No. 10 Milos Raonic to win 6-7 (4), 7-6 (4), 2-6, 7-6 (9), 7-5 on Court 17. A long line of fans snaked across the grounds when Federer-Robredo was moved from Ashe to much smaller Armstrong, which holds about 10,000 spectators and has a lot less room separating the playing surface from the stands. Federer, accustomed to playing in Ashe, last competed in Armstrong in 2006. He said that was not a factor in Monday's outcome, though. The blame, instead, belonged with his inability to hit his strokes the way he wanted. effective as a unit in the opener. Weve been together since OTAs and we know what Revis can do, Banks said. Hes been practicing with us the past two weeks. We pretty much know each other. It will grow as the season goes. The Bucs reconvened for practice Monday after having the weekend off. Schiano said its too early to tell if another projected starter, guard Carl Nicks, will play against the Jets. Nicks missed the final nine games of last season and is recovering from surgery on his left big toe. His comeback stalled last month when he was diagnosed as having a MRSA infection in a blister on the side of his left foot. He hasnt practiced since. Like Revis, Nicks did not play a down during the preseason. The Bucs are exploring a number of different options, including the prospect of moving center Jeremy Zuttah to left guard, if Nicks is out. Tackle Gabe Carimi and backup center Ted Larsen are other possibilities. We have guys on our roster, well just choose one of them. They all can play guard, Schiano said.

It feels like I just missed the cut, Els said when he finished. But the Big Easy was given a big reprieve. K.J. Choi made a bogey on the par-5 18th. Charley Hoffman made bogey on the 17th. Kevin Chappell missed an 8-foot birdie putt on the last hole. That combination was enough for Els to grab the 70th spot by a fraction of a point. Strickers third runner-up finish this year allowed him to move into the top 10 and qualify for the Presidents Cup team, despite playing a part-time schedule. That put the 10th spot up for grabs between Webb Simpson and Zach Johnson, who were playing together on the other side of the course. They were tied at 8 under big advantage to Simpson until the former U.S. Open champion dropped two shots on the last four holes. Johnson faced a 25-foot birdie putt on his last hole that determined whether he made the team, and he poured it in the middle. Johnson last week gave up a chance to earn points by skipping The Barclays to be in his brothers wedding. Lost in all this commotion was Jordan Spieth, the 20-year-old Texan dressed in a shirt with the Dallas Cowboys silver-and-blue colors. He went birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle at the end of his round for a 62 right before the rain delay. With such soft conditions, his 17under 267 was never going to hold up. Spieth wound up tied for fourth, and is No. 10 in the FedEx Cup standings. He is assured of becoming the first player since Woods in 1996 to start a season with no status and reach the Tour Championship. Woods, however, did it in seven tournaments. U.S. captain Fred Couples announces his two wild-card picks for the Presidents Cup on Wednesday, and Spieth is sure to get plenty of attention. Graham DeLaet of Canada started slowly and finished with two birdies for a 69 to finish alone in third and lock up a spot on his first Presidents Cup team for the International squad. Garcia had a two-shot lead at the start of the final round and gave it away quickly, starting with a threeputt for bogey on the par-5 second hole. He missed several short putts and went out in 39, falling too far back to catch up. Stenson, who hit his second shot into the hazard on the second hole to make bogey, atoned for that mistake with three straight birdies to take the lead, and he kept the mistakes to a minimum on the back nine. Stricker was two shots behind and had a long eagle putt on the 18th. Behind him, Stenson hit his approach into the bunker on the 17th. Right when the tournament was in doubt, Stenson holed the bunker shot to effectively wrap up the win. Im really pleased with how I bounced back, Stenson said. He was talking about his early bogey, but he could have been talking about his career. The big Swede already made one great comeback to reach No. 5 in the world. He was outside the top 200 and his game in disarray at the start of the 2012 season. But he pulled himself out of another slump, and this win took him to No. 6 in the world ranking.Deutsche Bank ChampionshipMonday, At TPC Boston, Norton, Mass.

Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. And then there were five. Five spots, that is, still up for grabs in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Among those jockeying for one of the coveted berths is Martin Truex Jr., who gamely finished third Sunday night at Atlanta while driving with a broken right wrist. Truex had to drive through the field from 18th after an unscheduled pit stop with just more than 100 laps remaining to check on a potential loose wheel. Most impressive was this: Truexs cast appeared to be melting late in the race. The cast just inside my hand here got all soft, he said. You can see it moves real soft like theres nothing there and its kind of broke right here between my thumb. It hurts like hell when youre in there just steering the car. When youre steering back and forth here and youre out of control and youre holding on and youre sawing on the wheel and all the tires, it felt like every time I moved it, somebody was hitting it with a hammer. But Truex, with one win on the season and 13th in points, is in decent shape headed into Richmond, where the Chase field will be decided Saturday night. Hes holding down the second wild card, while Kasey Kahne has clinched at least the first wild card because hes got two wins. Not in as a great a position is four-time champion Jeff Gordon, who is winless on the year and still trying to sneak inside the top 10 in the standings. He moved a notch closer Sunday with a sixth-place finish, but trails Kurt Busch by six points for the 10th and final spot. Based on the aggression Gordon showed early and often Sunday at Atlanta, hell be charging hard at Richmond after a spot in the Chase. There was some postrace tension between Gordon and Carl Edwards that apparently began when Gordon slid in front of Edwards early in the race to claim position. It triggered hard racing between them for the remainder of the race that Gordon tried to discuss with Edwards after in two different conversations. I have a problem with a guy when I apologize for sliding him and he proceeds to tell me all the things that I did wrong in the race, Gordon said after the first conversation with Edwards. I didnt hear him apologizing for any of the things that he did. I tried to have a regular conversation and that didnt seem to be possible with him. Edwards was angry that Gordon cut him off early in the race. We dont agree on what happened and finally he got frustrated enough with the conversation that he just walked away, which might be smart, Edwards said. He just slide-jobbed me and I thought it was really out of character for him and I didnt understand what was going on there. I did everything I could not to wreck us both. The two had a second conversation in the motorhome that seemed to satisfy both on how theyll race each other at Richmond. Edwards is already locked into the Chase field but every position will count for Gordon, who will be battling with such winless drivers as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Busch, and defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski for a spot in the Chase. None is in as much trouble as Keselowski, who is poised to become the first defending champion since Tony Stewart in 2006 to fail to make the Chase the year after winning the title. Keselowski, who was already on dangerous ground, dropped to 15th in the standings Sunday night when his engine failed 18 laps from the finish. Hes now 28 points out of 10th, winless on the year, and could miss the Chase even if he wins Saturday night at Richmond. We dont dictate our own fate, which is never good, Keselowski said. Obviously, we have the speed and performance to get there, but we havent put together the execution or the luck. Theres only so much you can control.B4TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressGAINESVILLE The Florida-Miami series has provided memorable moments, tantalizing trash talk and enough football fodder to maintain bitterness for decades. Good thing, too, because after Saturdays game between the 10th-ranked Gators and the Hurricanes in Miami, the in-state rivals might not play each other for a while at least not in the regular season. You never say never, but its really, really difficult, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday. Foley pointed to the potential of the Southeastern Conference moving to a nine-game league schedule as well as lost revenue from a home-and-home series. People dont want to hear this, but its the fact of the matter, he said. When you take a home game out of here, it cost you significant dollars. ... You cant do that every other year and try to run a sports program at the level were trying to run it. I think everybody thinks thats not a big deal. Well, its a big deal. Florida set aside $700,000 over the last four years to offset the loss of a home game in 2013, Foley said. The best chance the series has of being renewed aside from a bowl game would be as a neutral-site venture, Foley said. Maybe thats what the future holds somewhere down the road, he said. Obviously, I wont be making this decision forever. I just think its very hard for the University of Florida to play this game. Were excited to go down there. Obviously, a great rivalry, great history, great tradition, but its just a difficult game to play on any kind of consistent basis. Even on an inconsistent basis, Florida and Miami has been one to watch. The rivalry began in 1938 and continued annually until Florida dropped Miami in 1988 because the Gators wanted to play a more national schedule. Florida promptly replaced the Hurricanes with Montana State. Miami fans said the Gators were pulling out because the Hurricanes were dominating them on the field and on the national scene. After a 13-year hiatus, Florida and Miami renewed the rivalry in the 2001 Sugar Bowl. Just a few nights before Miamis 37-20 win, a handful of players from both teams most notably Miamis Bryant McKinnie and Floridas Alex Brown mixed it up on Bourbon Street. That was just the latest in a long list of heated moments for these teams. There was the Florida Flop in 1971, when Florida defenders literally dropped to the ground and let the Hurricanes score, allowing the Gators to get the ball back and quarterback John Reaves to break Jim Plunketts record for NCAA career passing yards. There was the peach pelting in 1980, when Florida fans angry that the Gators trailed Miami 28-7 late in Gainesville threw peaches at the Hurricanes, who were headed to the Peach Bowl. Miami coach Howard Schnellenberger was so furious he ordered a field goal to add to the final margin. The Bourbon Street Brawl intensified the angst two decades later, and it grew even more with the most recent meeting five years ago. Leading 23-3 with 1:56 to play in Gainesville, coach Urban Meyer could have called for a few kneeldowns and started celebrating Floridas first win in the series since 1985. Instead, he had Tim Tebow throwing. Tebow even took a shot at the end zone before the Gators settled for a 29-yard field goal with 25 seconds remaining. The Hurricanes said Meyer was running up the score. Sometimes when you do things, and people see the type of person that you really are, you turn a lot of people off, Miami coach Randy Shannon said after the game. I wont say more than that, but it helped us. It helped us more than you will ever know. Former Hurricanes and NFL star Warren Sapp was less diplomatic, calling Meyer a classless dirtbag. No doubt the Hurricanes and their fans are eager for the rematch, which is the first in Sun Life stadium and features an extra 1,314 seats. We cant barricade ourselves in from all the excitement thats in South Florida right now that surrounds this game, Hurricanes coach Al Golden said. But its really important for us to be mature and focused and draw on some of our experience from last year. Miami officials have said theres been no willingness from the Gators to talk about scheduling more games. Florida fans might not be so eager. Theyre already upset about having only about 900 tickets (out of a 12,500 allotment) in the lower bowl at Sun Life. If the series does continue, Golden would welcome it. I dont think theres any question, he said. Were going to play those types of games with Nebraska coming up and Notre Dame coming up. It has great significance in the state, so I would be for it, for sure. SPORTS BRIEFSFormer boxer Tommy Morrison dead at 44OMAHA, Neb. Tommy Morrison, a former heavyweight champion who gained fame for his role in the movie Rocky V, has died. He was 44. Morrisons former manager, Tony Holden said his longtime friend died Sunday night at a Nebraska hospital. The family would not disclose the cause of death. Morrison tested positive for HIV in 1996. In 1993, Morrison beat George Foreman to win the World Boxing Organization heavyweight title. He lost to Lennox Lewis in 1995. Morrison was born in Arkansas and grew up in Oklahoma.Jags QB Gabbert could start against ChiefsJACKSONVILLE Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert could be ready to start in Sundays regular-season opener against Kansas City. He threw passes in practice Monday and after suffering a hairline fracture of the thumb on his throwing hand in the teams second preseason game against the New York Jets. Gabbert missed the final two preseason games against Philadelphia and Atlanta. The QB did some light throwing over the weekend and increased his throws in Mondays practice. Only two players were held out of Mondays practice defensive end Jeremy Mincey and offensive guard Will Rackley. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said both should be ready to return on Wednesday. Running back Justin Forsett, who has been sidelined since the first week of training camp, practiced Monday.Belichick doesnt rule out Tebow returnFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Could the door be open for quarterback Tim Tebow to return to the New England Patriots? Patriots coach Bill Belichick on Monday declined to rule out bringing back the popular but underperforming quarterback some time this season. The Patriots have only two quarterbacks on the active roster. If starter Tom Brady or backup Ryan Mallett are injured, they would need another. Tebow was released Saturday when NFL teams were required to cut their rosters to 53 players.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Community:Read about the months upcoming community events/C5Inside: Nature Coast EMS/ C2 Ear, Nose & Throat/ C2 Sound Bites/C4 Health Notes/C3 Age is no bar Ihave a 94-year-old white female patient who was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, almost three years ago. This condition is more common in elderly patients. In a patient with a myelodysplastic syndrome, the blood stem cells (immature cells) do not become healthy red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. The immature blood cells, called blasts, do not work the way they should and either die in the bone marrow or soon after they go into the blood. This leaves less room for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets to form in the bone marrow. When there are fewer healthy blood cells, infection, anemia, or easy bleeding may occur. We Can weekend planned Each year, the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute sponsors a half-day retreat for cancer patients and their families known as the We Can Weekend. This event is a retreat with a family-centered approach to dealing with and coping with cancer. On Sept. 28, the 15th annual We Can Weekend will take place at the Citrus Hills Golf and Country Club. The day has been designed for individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer, and their families. Cancer is a disease that affects everyone in the family, Cleaning house may seem like a mundane task, but you can really work up a sweat as you wash, wax, fold and sweep.

We have all heard the numbers and we know the statistics. We are now living longer today. But quality is still an issue. Some of us are living longer but not necessarily quality lives. Here are a few tips on how to live long and healthy lives. 1. Exercise your brain by learning something new or doing something challenging. It doesnt matter how old you are. Push yourself away from the TV. Read a book. Play games such as crosswords. Throw that calculator away and do some adding and subtracting and dividing and multiplying in your head. If you have to check, go ahead and use some paper. But try doing it without a calculator. Do these things and worry less because you may not be aware, but there is a strong correlation between worrying and Alzheimers disease. 2. Have a connection with friends and family. People that isolate themselves and become loners tend to be sicker. There is no way to test or measure the importance of having loving and friendly relationships with friends and family. It brings many rewards. 3. See your doctor as recommended. Regularly scheduled visits and screening can catch problems in early phases and avoid major problems down the road. I know it is an inconvenience sometimes it seems, but it is well worth it. 4. Balance. This includes eating the right food and also the right amounts. Body fitness and exercise are likewise important. Getting the right amount of rest can reduce your stress, and have a healthy sex life if physically possible. Research has suggested that it is a major de-stressor, especially for men. 5. Last but not least, try to see some humor in life. So much sadness exists in our world but it is so important to rise above that sometimes to keep ourselves healthy and happy. European studies suggested that key body chemicals are influenced directly by sadness, which studies suggest are strongly correlated to heart disease.

Stephanie Gomes, P.A. Joseph Starnes, P.A. 000FYM4 Texting and driving never a good idea Good morning! I hope you had a safe and fun Labor Day! September has just begun and Halloween displays have been up for 2 weeks in some of the stores! My question is why? There is no need to rush. It wont make you a better person, by having your decorations up a month before they need to be, which leads me to more important questions. Why do you need to answer the phone while youre driving? Why do you need to make a call while youre driving, and the biggest question, why is texting more important than watching the traffic and people all-around you? Ill give you the answer to all three. None are important enough to risk your life and the lives of those around you. I bring this up, because a government official recently brought the issue up again, regarding legislation regulating drivers and cell phone use. Here is a brief from the Chronicle: State Rep. Irv Slosberg, a Boca Raton Democrat, filed a bill (last week) that would bar youths under age 18 from using mobile phones while driving. HB5 also seeks to stop texting while driving and would not allow minors to talk on cell phones while they drive. Be sure that this will happen sometime in the near future and may not just affect young drivers. I just want everyone to use good judgment and pull over if they really need to text someone back, or dial a number. Too many people have been critically injured and/or died because someone thought it was more important to send a text than to watch the road. Our team members see it more often than you could possibly imagine. Think about it. The minimal time texting is five seconds, where at 55 miles an hour you could drive the length of a football field without looking at the road, basically blind. That is truly scary to me. 13 percent of drivers 18 to 20 years old admitted to talking and or texting at the time of a reported crash. Please be smart and pull over or wait until you reach your destination. Now, here is some nice news to share with you and we hope you will join us! Nature Coast EMS team members save lives every day, but what you may not know it that we also volunteer for various projects in Citrus County, from building a Habitat for Community House, and wrapping Christmas presents for the Resource Center to deep cleaning the kitchen at the Bobby Orvis Building on the Key Training Center Lecanto campus to get it in shape for a new adult day care.

Call Candy 563-3206 to reserve your space. My patient presented with anemia. Initially, she was started on Procrit it is synthesized erythropoietin. In the human body, erythropoietin is secreted by the kidneys and it stimulates bone marrow to make more RBCs or red blood cells. This helps correct anemia. My patient was initially started on Procrit and she responded well. It is given once a week as an injection. After a couple of years, she stopped responding to Procrit. She started requiring PRBC transfusion. At this time, I had a long discussion with my patient and her family. All decided to start her on treatment with Vidaza. It is the first drug in the U.S. to be approved for patients with MDS. It is the only drug which has shown to improve overall survival in these patients with MDS. It is a kind of chemotherapy and at her age in the 90s, obviously there was some reservation in starting it. Though she was 93 when I started her on Vidaza, she was living by herself at home. Her son was actively helping her but she could take care of herself. Once she started this new treatment, she started feeling better. Her fatigue improved. Her MDS improved, too. She has been on this drug for almost one year. She is tolerating it well. She no longer requires any more blood transfusion. Her anemia has improved, too. Thus, she is 94 and still taking this treatment and is feeling better after treatment than what she felt before getting it. Many times, a person feels, I am too old to get any treatment for cancer, and that is not true. You need to evaluate the benefit and risk and take treatment if benefit outweighs the risk, and not take if it is other way around. Treatment can always be stopped if the person gets unexpected or excessive side effects. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

NOTESContinued from Page C3 Dentistry makes a difference Not every job allows you to feel that you have made a difference in someones life. Dentistry is one of the careers in which it is very possible to be able to make the above statement ring through. In fact, in the past few months, I was in the process of making it happen but had no idea to what extent it would be true. A few months ago, a middle-aged lady came to me with some pretty broken-down teeth, infections in her jaw and an overall sense of desperation about her mouth. She was in search of a solution, even if it involved a new set of teeth in the form of dentures. I remember it like yesterday. She was depressed about her situation, even embarrassed. She had a hard time looking me in the eyes and would cover her mouth when she spoke. She kept her upper lip down over her teeth intentionally and wouldnt dream of smiling. She was out of a job and embarrassed to go look for one, the way she felt. After a new-patient exam and consultation, she decided, with my guidance, to have all of her teeth removed, except for her two lower canines and a molar. I explained the way I would handle her situation and told here we were going to take out all of her upper back teeth first, leaving whatever front teeth she had so she would not be completely toothless while we continued with her care. We also took out the remaining lower teeth, with the exception of the three we were holding on to. While the extraction sites healed, we proceeded to get her gums healthy around the teeth we saved, as well as whitened the teeth and placed any necessary fillings. Some of you who read this column regularly realize that what I am explaining is the process of making an immediate denture up top and a conventional partial denture on the bottom. As we proceeded with making her dentures, we paid attention to tooth size, shape and position, as well as color and relationship to each other. When the teeth were finally made, she was ready for the last step. Once the dentures were made, I removed her remaining upper teeth and placed the denture we were working so hard on the same day an immediate denture. At that same visit, I placed the lower partial. As I usually do, I saw her back in one week to find out how she was doing. She was doing remarkably well. In fact, she was smiling and thanked me for changing her life. Her attire had changed a bit and she was wearing makeup. After seeing her for a few more follow-up appointments, it was apparent that all the work and effort paid off. She had a few concerns while going through the process, but now realized everything that I said would happen, actually did. Her areas of concern were no longer an issue now was she had a smile, she no longer hid her mouth with her hand, and she stated that I gave her her life back again. I cannot describe the feeling to have made such a difference in someones life!Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Precious Paws Rescue has several adult and special-needs cats that would love to be in a home. They miss living with a special person, curling up on a lap or just gazing out a window. They are up to date on all veterinary care, litterbox trained and socialized. In an effort to move these cats into a more personal home environment, preferably as the only pet in the household, PPR is looking for longterm foster families. Each cat will remain an official PPR foster. All necessary veterinary care, food and litter will be provided by PPR. The foster family will provide shelter and love. Those unable to adopt or foster can help by sponsoring one of the felines with an $18 monthly donation in the selected felines name to Precious Paws Rescue. PPR is an all-volunteer charity organization dedicated to decreasing the number of homeless pets through rescuing, fostering and adopting. PPR sponsors a low-cost spay/neuter program for cats and dogs to further help reduce the number of unwanted pets. For more information about adopting, fostering or sponsoring a Precious Paws rescue cat, call 352726-4700 and a volunteer will return your call. Foster homes sought for cats
C6TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER3, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.George Jean Nathan, a drama critic and an editor who died in 1958, said, An optimist is a fellow who believes a housefly is looking for a way to get out. At the bridge table, players tend to be optimists or pessimists. In this deal, for example, look at the East and North hands. East is defending against four spades. West leads the club jack. What should East do? In Standard American, Souths three-spade rebid shows extra values (usually 15-17 highcard points) and a good six-card suit. It is game-forcing after Norths two-over-one response. If you are using two-over-one gameforce, then three spades promises a solid suit and sets it as trumps. The responder is asked to control-bid (cue-bid) if interested in a slam. Here, North has a borderline hand. He could justify a four-diamond or four-heart controlbid. But since South has no side first-round control, he would sign off in four spades. The dummy is depressing. East knows that if declarer needs a diamond finesse, it is working. East can see two club winners. Maybe West has a trump trick (but not if South has shown a solid suit). What other chance is there? None, apparently. Well, there is one West might be void of diamonds. After winning with his club king, East should shift to a diamond. Here, West ruffs, returns a club to Easts ace, and receives another ruff for down one. Houseflies, be gone! Some players would find this ruff, but only at trick three. They cannot resist immediately cashing available tricks. Take your time and think through the deal.

(N) WGN News at NineFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: I am a college student who is about two years from graduating. I have been living with my parents while I am in school, because its cheaper than living on campus. A few years ago, I decided, for several reasons, to move from Ohio to Florida when I graduate. Although my parents have told me my entire life to do what I want to do, they are against this move. When I first told them about this decision, they thought I was just dreaming. However, as my college education is winding up, they are trying to convince me to stay. They will not let up with their reasons for me to continue to live here. I keep telling my family that moving is not a final goodbye. They are welcome to visit anytime, and I surely will return to Ohio now and then. But this information hasnt convinced them to stop badgering me. I dont think I can take the pressure anymore. What do I do? Pressured Family Dear Pressured: Your family wants you to stick around because they will miss you terribly if you move away. They foresee you marrying someone from Florida and raising a family there, where you will have only periodic contact. You see this as developing your independence. They see it as a permanent separation. If you can understand their underlying fear and sadness, it will help you respond more compassionately to their badgering. But this is your decision to make, whether or not they agree, so please have the courage of your convictions, which includes the ability to withstand the pressure. Dear Annie: I have an account at a local bank. Every time anyone enters the bank, a greeter meets us with good wishes, hellos and What are your plans for the day? The tellers chitchat with customers at the window, asking How are you? and What are you doing for the holiday? This takes up time when people are waiting for service. How do you tell them to shut up and get the line moving when you only want to do business and get out? Waiting for Your Answer Dear Waiting: Most of this friendliness does not take up as much time as you think. Employees can be both friendly and efficient. You can say hello to a greeter without stopping to tell your life story. Tellers can chat while they cash checks, enter deposits or do any number of things. It only becomes a problem if the teller cannot multitask or when the chatting continues after the transaction is finished. If you notice this happening, you should register a complaint with the bank manager. Dear Annie: You gave good advice to Lonely for Friends. I have been fortunate to make and keep many friends. Heres my advice: To keep friends, they must be nurtured like a garden. When you are with a potential friend: 1. Ask about them. Try not to be self-absorbed. Show interest and care when they speak. 2. Discuss books, movies, current affairs (without the politics). 3. Invite them to your home and make another date while together. 4. Send a note by email, snail mail or even text message letting them know you enjoyed being together. 5. Remember their birthday or the next big holiday. 6. Be there as a friend when lifes difficulties happen and celebrate the good times. 7. Be lighthearted and fun to be around. To have a friend, one must be a friend. This also makes for better relations with coworkers. Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookie of life.
