PATFAHERTY Staff writerCITRA Every tiger has a tale. The stories behind the big cats at the Endangered Animal Rescue Sanctuary define the organizations role. And its not just about tigers; there are lions, bears, leopards and monkeys, along with giant tortoises, a panther, cougars and deer. Theres even a liger, a cross between a lion and a tiger, creating the animal kingdoms largest cat. Odin, now 2 years old, is expected to reach 1,200 to 1,300 pounds. The sanctuary, known as EARS, is an ongoing effort to preserve some of the worlds most endangered species while providing them with a safe, comfortable environment. Many of the animals that made it here came from parks, shows, roadside attractions, seizures by authorities and from individuals who discovered exotic animals were more cost and responsibility than they wanted.

PETERSBURG In many ways, Democrat Charlie Crists message as he began his campaign for governor Monday was the same as when he was a Republican governor. He called for investment in clean energy, more money for schools, tax breaks for small businesses. Even the slogan is the same signs were printed up saying The Peoples Governor. Crist will be up against money and attacks like hes never seen before in a political career where he has won three statewide offices and lost two U.S. Senate races.

Youve had another contraction, Dr. Rose Sobel, checking the lines the machine drew on a paper roll, told the Homosassa mother-to-be. As contractions got stronger, excitement was rising for Andersons firstborn, who could look forward to special Halloween parties that also would celebrate his birth. Although Anderson had not been aware of the fact, the chance was pretty good for her to deliver by natural childbirth because Sobel, her obstetrician, had the lowest caesarean section rate in 2012 in the state of Florida, according to data compiled by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). What AHCAs data showed was that Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center had a rate of 22 percent for C-section deliveries compared to a statewide average of nearly 40 percent. As Sobel is the only practicing OB-GYN at Seven Rivers, the low rate is the result of her work. The rate of 22 percent includes all c-sections, whether first or subsequent deliveries. When looking at only first deliveries, Sobels rates looked even better. From 2012, we had 316 births, Sobel explained last week. The c-sections are divided into repeat C-sections vs. CHRIS VAN ORMER/ ChronicleDr. Rose Sobel, left, checks a fetal monitor Thursday for the progress of the baby Heather Anderson was soon to deliver at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center near Crystal River.

From wire reports Committee narrows down requests for HCA MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS A working group Monday night began dissecting details of what members hope will become the agreement that leases Citrus Memorial hospital to Hospital Corporation of America. The committee, comprised of two members each of the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board, is meeting weekly to finalize plans for leasing the countys only public hospital. After choosing the bidder and transaction type, the next official step is signing a non-binding letter of intent with HCA. That document is the framework for a final contract on a 50-year lease. Joining the meeting by phone were Ashby Burks, the CCHBs transaction attorney, and Trey Crabb, its transaction consultant. Board members discussed several issues Monday, including: The desire that HCA keep Citrus Memorial as an acute-care hospital for the entire length of the lease. There might be some pushback on that, Burks said. Fifty years is a long time. Committee members also wanted long-time protection of programs. Burks, however, said HCA might want to discard programs that do not earn a financial return. He said HCA would reach those conclusions after conducting the due diligence that occurs following the letter of intent, but before the final contract. Foundation board chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said the committee should insist that Citrus Memorial keep an obstetrics unit. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty said at least 70 percent of obstetric patients are on Medicaid, the federally funded, state-run insurance for low-income women and children. If they just look at the numbers, OB is going to go, Beaty said. Foundation board member Joe Brannen, whose father George cofounded Citrus Memorial in 1957, said obstetrics are vital to the hospital. I dont think we can stand to lose that service, he said. Getting an understanding of HCAs pledge for $45 million in capital improvements over five years. Board members said they want to know whether that amount includes maintenance. Learning HCAs indigent-care policy, and whether its different for emergency and nonemergency patients. Committee members said they didnt want HCA turning away non-emergency patients on inability to pay. Get in writing HCAs commitment to keep all employees on board for at least one year. The committee hopes to have the letter of intent in place before Christmas. Chronicle The 42nd Inverness Festival of the Arts got off to a wet start last weekend, but according to Pati Smith, festival chairwoman, it was a success. Sale-wise, the exhibitors said Saturday was actually better than Sunday, she said. Sunday the weather was beautiful and people came out and strolled around.

There are 56 days left in the year. This is Election Day. Todays Highlight in History: On Nov. 5, 1912, Democrat Woodrow Wilson was elected president, defeating Progressive Party candidate Theodore Roosevelt, incumbent Republican William Howard Taft and Socialist Eugene V. Debs. On this date: In 1605, the Gunpowder Plot failed as Guy Fawkes was seized before he could blow up the English Parliament. In 1872, suffragist Susan B. Anthony defied the law by attempting to cast a vote for President Ulysses S. Grant. (Anthony was convicted by a judge and fined $100, but she never paid the fine.) In 1940, President Franklin D. Roosevelt won an unprecedented third term in office as he defeated Republican challenger Wendell L. Willkie. Ten years ago: President Bush signed a bill outlawing the procedure known by its critics as partialbirth abortion; less than an hour later, a federal judge in Nebraska issued a temporary restraining order against the ban. (In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.) Five years ago: One day after being elected president, Barack Obama began filling out his new administration, selecting Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel to be White House chief of staff. One year ago: On the eve of the presidential election, President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney held rallies seven miles apart in Columbus, Ohio, as two polls showed Obama with a one-percentage-point lead over Romney.

The Pike, by Lucy HughesHallett, was awarded the $32,000 Samuel Johnson Prize on Monday. The book tells the story of DAnnunzio, a debauched Italian artist who became a national hero. Martin Rees, who chaired the judging panel, praised HughesHalletts intricate crafting of the narrative and said readers will be transfixed by her portrayal of repellent egotist DAnnunzio. Her original experimentation with form transcends the conventions of biography, Rees said. Hughes-Hallett has written two other books: Cleopatra: Histories, Dreams and Distortions and Heroes: Saviours, Traitors and Supermen. For the Samuel Johnson Prize, she beat out other finalists including Charles Moores Margaret Thatcher: The Authorized Biography; Charlotte Higgins portrait of ancient Britain, Under Another Sky; and A Sting in the Tale by bee conservationist Dave Goulson. Rees noted that the strength and variety of the other shortlisted works had given the judges a difficult task.

For the RECORD ChronicleSaturday provides an opportunity to celebrate Floridas rich folk heritage. Organizers are set for the inaugural Florida Folk Heritage and Music Festival. The event is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Dade Battlefield Historic State Park in Bushnell. The festival is the brainchild of park volunteer Jim McAlister. It is being sponsored by the Florida Folk Heritage and Music Festival Association and, in part, by the Friends of Florida Folk. McAlister said he was involved in folk festivals as a youngster and said the surroundings at Dade Park make it a desirable site for a festival. The event will include a wide variety of entertainment celebrating the state and its rich history. Historians will bring Floridas past alive through interpretive programs and presentations while some of Floridas best folk musicians tell the story of the Sunshine State through music. Guest musicians include Frank Thomas, known as the Dean of Florida Folk Music; Bill and Eli Perras; Benjamin Dehart, the Cracker Tenor; Chuck Hardwicke; Emmett Carlisle and Dora Anne, the Lullaby Lady. Both adults and youngsters will have an opportunity to visit with and watch a folk artist and learn the skills necessary for the day-to-day existence in pioneer Florida. Patrons will also have an opportunity to listen to youngsters compete in the Ann Thomas Youth Story Telling and Writing Contest. Thomas was a librarian in Polk County who was very involved in folk music, McAlister said. She died several years ago. Admission to the event is $5 per carload, with up to eight people. The park is at 7200 Sumter County Road 603. For more information about the festival, www. crackerheritagefestival. weebly.com. Folk festival set for Saturday Photo courtesy Google maps

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS The trial of the man accused of killing his long-time domestic partner and leaving her corpse behind a shed for several days is slated for next week. Officials are alleging Arthur Neil Sputa Jr., 50, was inside the house during this period nursing a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Circuit Judge Richard Ric Howard has scheduled a motion hearing for Thursday to determine if the medical examiners testimony ought to be excluded from the trial. The medical examiners initial report on the 2011 death of 59-year-old Diane Bartlett was that the manner of death was homicide, but that cause of death was undetermined. The report now reflects the cause of death and the attorney representing Sputa in the murder case claimed Monday that the change happened not because of scientific determination, but based on information supplied by a detective in the case. Attorney E. Juan Lynum, therefore, wants the medical examiner excluded from testimony at trial. Sputa was the primary suspect in the investigation of the death of Bartlett, Sputas long-time domestic partner. According to Sputas arrest report, deputies went to 6035 N. Tsala Apopka Drive off State Road 200 in Hernando for a well-being check after neighbors said the couples dog had been loose for several days. At the residence, deputies reportedly found Bartletts body lying behind a shed on the property. Investigators also heard noises coming from inside the home where they found Sputa. Sputa reportedly admitted that he and Bartlett got into a physical fight and that he hit and choked her. According to the report, he then added that he knocked her out and dragged her lifeless body to where the corpse was found, behind the shed. Sputa reportedly was told his girlfriend was dead and replied, If shes dead its from my hands. Investigators also discovered that Sputa had a gunshot wound inside his mouth allegedly a result of a botched suicide attempt after knocking out Bartlett. Sputa was hospitalized briefly before being transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. The prosecution team is Bill Catto and Rich Buxman. The attorney for a Hernando woman facing charges of aggravated child abuse for allegedly starving and severely abusing her infant daughter got her case continued pending further mental assessments. Assistant Public Defender Charity Braddock told Judge Howard she was ready for trial except for one more medical evaluation for her client, Alyssia Skinner, 23. Skinner was arrested in February on eight counts of aggravated child abuse and torture, and child negligence for allegedly confining her 17-month-old baby to a small, cluttered, filthy dimly-lit room in her mobile home. She also reportedly kept the air conditioner cranked up and withheld food from the child. The baby also went for long periods without being changed, causing rashes on the childs pelvic area and causing the room to reek of urine and feces. Investigators said medical authorities concluded the child suffered from chronic hypothermia and starvation. The baby also was diagnosed by doctors as having about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of blood on the surface of her brain, which reportedly is consistent with shaken baby cases. The babys legs were frozen and curled in a fetal position due to having to protect against the effects of the low temperatures in the room and to preserve body heat. According to Skinners arrest affidavit, even while sedated the childs legs could not be straightened because of muscle and tendondamage. Doctors also noted that the baby suffered from muscle and brain atrophy, which means they wasted away because of food deprivation for prolonged periods Jerry Wayne Corbin, 50, of Homosassa, was sentenced to five years in prison Monday and will be designated a sex offender for the rest of his life after a plea deal. Judge Howard also told him he may be subject to civil commitment should the state deem him not ready for reintegration into society. The deal was worked out between Corbins attorney Charity Braddock and prosecutor Melissa Pendergrass. Corbin was arrested in July on child pornography charges for reportedly possessing photos and videos depicting child sexual images and activities.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Self-driving cars on advisers agendas CHRISVANORMER Staff writerAutomated vehicles are cruising into view, two advisory groups will hear on Wednesday. Tampa Bay could be well positioned to start the implementation of automated technologies, which means the region would benefit from substantial business opportunities, according to a presentation to be made by Bob Clifford, executive director of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA). Clifford, consultant to Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), will make his presentation to two groups attached to the TPO: Transportation Technical Advisory Committee and Citizens Advisory Committee. Automated vehicles have the potential to reduce more than 30,000 traffic fatalities and $450 billion in economic losses that annually occur from traffic collisions in the United States, both groups will hear. The vehicles also could reduce the $200 billion in economic losses and environmental damage from traffic congestion. Two Tampa-area groups have started to work together to explore automated vehicle technology. The Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority has contracted with the University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research to examine and promote such technologies to develop an approach for the Tampa Bay region reflecting infrastructure, policy, transit, safety and planning impacts. Recent sensor, computing and artificial intelligence breakthroughs have resulted in vehicles that can drive themselves, according to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). Automated vehicles promise to revolutionize the way people travel. FDOT will host a summit on automated vehicles on Nov. 14 and 15 in Tampa. The purpose of the summit will be: T o discuss current automated vehicle technology and predicted implementation roadmaps. To engage and collaborate with public and private partners. To discuss key regulatory issues to enable the safe deployment of automated vehicle technology. T o identify a framework for multi-phased implementation of automated vehicle systems in Florida. More information about the summit is available at www.FAVS2013.org. Also on the advisers agendas: Discussion of Citrus County Federal Functional Classification. Report about the Oct. 30 workshop with Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization regarding a merger of the two groups. Discussion of TPO 2014 legislative priorities.

HELPContinued from Page A1 State BRIEF State searching evidence in inmate escape caseTALLAHASSEE State investigators are combing through thousands of phone calls and text messages that two convicted killers sent and received before they made their brief escape from a Florida prison. Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey said on Monday that its just one part of an unfolding investigation that could soon yield arrests. Bailey gave an update to a state Senate panel that was looking into how Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker were able to be released from prison using forged documents. The two killers were recaptured earlier this month. Bailey said the investigation so far showed that the men had gotten hold of a cellphone while in jail. He also told senators that authorities were analyzing computers and printers the two inmates accessed while serving at a Panhandle prison. From wire reports
a new mayor for the first time in 12 years, while Bostons mayoral race pits white collar against blue collar, and Detroits spotlights the citys bankruptcy just three of the many mayoral contests from coast to coast. Republican and Democratic strategists alike say that Tuesdays contests are more defined by candidate personalities and regionspecific issues than political trends likely to influence next years larger fight for control of Congress. Turnout is expected to be low across the country, typical for elections held in years when the White House and Congress arent up for grabs. Candidates across the country made their last pitches to voters as local elections boards made their final preparations. We cant take anything for granted. We are Republicans in New Jersey, incumbent Gov. Chris Christie told supporters Monday, although polls suggest he likely will cruise to a second term over his little-known Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono. A potential presidential candidate, Christie could become the states first Republican to exceed 50 percent of the vote in a statewide election in 25 years. And a Republican victory in a Democraticleaning state could stoke the notion within part of the GOP that a pragmatic approach is the answer to the partys national woes. To the south, a defeat of a conservative Republican in the swing-voting state of Virginia also could feed into that argument. Former national Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe is favored against Republican Ken Cuccinelli, who comes from the GOPs right flank and promotes his role as the first state attorney general to challenge the health care overhaul. Cuccinelli has been hurt both by the government shutdown that Republicans are bearing most of the blame for and by a political scandal involving accusations of lavish gift-giving by a political supporter to Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell and his family. A McAuliffe victory would break a three decade-long trend: Virginia has elected a governor from the party not occupying the White House in every gubernatorial election since 1977. Neither race will offer significant clues about the state of the electorate heading into a midterm election year. Theyre a far cry from being a crystal ball for 2014, said longtime Democratic pollster John Anzalone. These two big races are all about the individuals. The same could be said for down-ballot races across the nation. In Coralville, Iowa, population 19,000, the national tea party ally Americans for Prosperity is saturating mailboxes and telephone lines to support conservative candidates for city council as the area struggles to control its debt. The outside group, backed by the billionaire Koch brothers, spent $36 million last year mostly supporting Republican candidates and attacking Democrats in the presidential and U.S. Senate races. In Iowa, the group is showing that no race is too small to fight government spending. The issues extend beyond public debt in Colorado, where voters will decide on a tax rate for marijuana, a suggested 25 percent tax to fund school construction and regulation of the newly legal drug. Also, 11 counties in northern and eastern Colorado were taking nonbinding votes on secession and creating a new state. Mayors will be elected in some of the nations largest cities. In New York, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is the heavy favorite to succeed outgoing Mayor Michael Boomberg, with polls suggesting that hes on the verge of being the first Democrat to be elected mayor since 1989. De Blasio, an unabashed liberal, positioned himself as a clean break with the Bloomberg years, promoting a sweeping progressive agenda. He faces Republican rival Joe Lhota, former head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and a one-time deputy mayor to Rudy Giuliani. Lhota has largely campaigned on continuing the policies of both his former boss and Bloomberg. In Boston, its a race of blue-collar Democrat against white-collar Democrat as state Rep. Martin Walsh and City Councilor John Connolly vie for the chance to succeed longtime Mayor Thomas Menino. Walsh, a union laborer before being elected to the state House, has highlighted his life story, including surviving cancer as a boy and overcoming alcoholism as a young adult. Connolly, a corporate attorney, has focused on education issues. Polls suggest the race will be close. Detroit may feature the nations most unusual contest. Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon and former Detroit Medical Center chief Mike Duggan are competing for a mayors title that will have little immediate power as the debtridden metropolis is guided through the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history by a state-appointed emergency manager.

LAURANNEERGAARD AP medical writerWASHINGTON Debating whether to seek a strep test for that sore throat? One day there could be an app for that: Researchers are developing a home scorecard that aims to prevent thousands of unnecessary trips to the doctor for this common complaint. More than 12 million people make doctors visits for a sore throat every year. Usually the culprit is a virus that they just have to wait out with a little TLC. In fact, the risk of strep throat is low enough for adults that doctors may skip testing them, deciding not to bother after running down a list of symptoms. That can leave patients wondering why they spent hours in the waiting room and had to pay the doctors bill. If you could know that your risk was low enough that you wouldnt even be tested, you might actually save yourself a visit, said Dr. Andrew Fine, an emergency physician at Boston Childrens Hospital. The trick: Combine some of the symptoms that doctors look for with a bit of computer data to tell if strep throat is circulating in your geographical region. If the bugs in your neighborhood, that increases the chances that youve caught it, said Dr. Kenneth Mandl, a Harvard professor and informatics specialist with Boston Childrens. As a first step, Fine and Mandl turned to the records of more than 70,000 sore-throat patients who got strep tests and had their symptoms recorded at CVS MinuteClinics in six states between 2006 and 2008. They determined those peoples risk of strep using the experimental scorecard approach and checked the computer models accuracy against the strep test results. Nationally, identifying those with less than a 10 percent chance of strep throat could save 230,000 doctor visits a year, the team reported Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. The method wasnt perfect: It meant 8,500 strep cases would have been missed, or the diagnosis delayed, concluded the government-funded study. But Mandl said its unlikely that would lead to lasting harm as most of those infections would clear up on their own, or persisting pain eventually would send patients to the doctor. And he noted that the rapid strep tests that doctors use in their offices can miss cases, too. Much more research is needed to prove if the method would work in everyday life and if a mobile app or a phone call to the doctor would be the best approach. The Boston team has begun the next step: Parents of kids who come to the hospitals emergency room for a strep test are handed a digital tablet and asked to fill out the scorecard first. Researchers will see how the combination of symptoms and local infection trends compare with actual strep test results. Sore throats are a challenge. Strep throat, caused by bacteria named Group A streptococcus, is to blame for only about 10 percent of cases in adults, and 30 percent in children. Its hard to tell who needs a strep test based on symptoms alone, cautioned Dr. Chris Van Beneden of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which helped fund the new research. But what is clear: Doctors should be sure its strep before prescribing antibiotics because those bacteria-fighting drugs have no effect on viruses. Yet research published last month in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine found 60 percent of adults who sought care for a sore throat received antibiotics. Unneeded antibiotic use can spur development of drug-resistant germs. The Boston team looked at the flip side of the issue: Who could safely skip a strep check? Because strep is most common in children ages 5 to 15, doctors usually test youngsters with a sore throat for the bacteria. For anyone 15 or older, Mandl said doctors may skip a test depending on symptoms. While a cough and runny nose are more typical of a cold virus, strep symptoms might include a fever, enlarged lymph nodes, tonsils with swelling or pus and lack of a cough. Associated PressNEW YORK Theyre in a mystical business with few guarantees, so perhaps anyone could foresee tension between psychics and the law. In two prominent examples, self-declared clairvoyants were recently convicted of big-money scams in New York and Florida, where one trial featured a romance-writing titan as a victim. But beyond those cases is a history of legal wrestling over fortunetelling, free speech and fraud. While the recent trials involved general fraud charges, numerous cities and states have laws banning or restricting soothsaying itself. Authorities say they aim to distinguish between catering to peoples interest in the supernatural and conning them. Still, some psychics feel anti-fortunetelling laws are unfair to them and to people who believe seers have something to offer. New York psychic Jesse Bravo decries seers who make impossible promises or press clients to consult, and pay, them frequently. There are a lot of predators out there, he said. But Bravo, an investment banker who moonlights as a medium, rues the disclaimer hes compelled to give clients: Readings are for entertainment only. Unless solely for amusement, telling fortunes or using occult powers to give advice is a misdemeanor under New York state law. Its a little insulting, he said. I believe in what I do, and the people who are coming to me believe in what I do. ... But thats OK the state doesnt have to believe in what I do. For all those who discount psychics, a 2009 survey for the Pew Research Centers Religion & Public Life Project found about one in seven Americans has consulted one. Some visits evolve into extended and expensive relationships. Best-selling historical-romance novelist Jude Deveraux paid psychic Rosa Marks about $17 million over 17 years, she testified at Marks recent federal fraud trial in West Palm Beach, Fla., according to newspaper reports. The psychic said she could transfer the spirit of Deverauxs dead 8year-old son into another boys body and reunite them, among other claims, the writer said. When I look back on it now, it was outrageous, she testified. I was out of my mind. Marks lawyer argued that Deverauxs account was unreliable and that Marks was being blamed for some relatives confessed schemes. Marks, based in New York and Florida, was found guilty and could get up to 20 years in prison on the top charge alone when sentenced this year. Two weeks later, a Manhattan jury convicted seer Sylvia Mitchell of bilking two clients out of tens of thousands of dollars. Mitchell linked their problems to past lives and negative energy and prescribed cures such as giving her five-figure sums to hold, according to testimony. Mitchells lawyer said her psychic efforts were sincere, even if their effectiveness wasnt proved or disproved. Shes due to be sentenced this month, with the top charge carrying up to 15 years in prison. A private investigator who specializes in such cases said theyre about proving clients were exploited, not about passing judgment on clairvoyancy. In such cases, youre dealing with a confidence scheme, said Bob Nygaard, whos based in New York City and Boca Raton, Fla. It becomes clear to you the script (the psychics) are following. Some states and communities have concluded fortunetelling is so rife with rip-offs that it should be regulated or prohibited, at least as a paid business. Many laws are decades old. But the Detroit suburb of Warren in 2010 began requiring many psychics to get licenses that entail fingerprinting and criminal background checks. Meanwhile, St. Johnsbury, Vt., repealed its venerable soothsaying ban in 2008 amid concerns that it outlawed feng shui, the traditional Chinese practice of harmonizing ones environment for health and financial benefits. A federal appeals court upheld a psychic-licensing law in Chesterfield County, Va., this February. But courts recently nixed fortunetelling bans as free speech infringements in other places, including Alexandria, La., and Montgomery County, Md. Fortunetelling may be pure entertainment, it may give individuals some insight into the future, or it may be hokum, but Montgomery Countys prohibition on paid psychic readings has a chilling effect on constitutionally protected speech, Marylands Court of Appeals wrote in 2010. Longtime tarot card reader Mary K. Greer feels authorities should go after unscrupulous psychics with fraud laws, not fortunetelling restrictions. But soothsayers need to emphasize that they cant pledge complete accuracy, Greer said. She tells clients to see her as a guide who helps elicit their own insights. She, Bravo and some other psychic readers said they make it a point not to see any given client more than once or twice a year. Matthew Jack Jr., 75CRYSTAL RIVERMatthew G.

the very first, the primary C-section. Our C-section rate was 22 percent. Thirtynine of the 70 were repeats. Therefore, 31 births were primary C-sections, showing a primary rate of less than 10 percent, which is an important consideration. Once you have a C-section, unfortunately, you have to have a C-section for the next one, Sobel said. Following a c-section, the lower abdominal muscles can be weakened to the point where the area can rupture during the next baby delivery. If it does rupture, the baby can die, Sobel said, adding that many hospitals will not offer the option because it could pose an unnecessary risk. Therefore, a lower rate of primary c-sections means mothers will have more choices with future births. Choosing to deliver by c-section with a first baby is not popular. I dont get any requests for that at all, Sobel said. However, c-section delivery for a first baby has been known to be preferred in some other cultures, she said. What Sobel did to lower the rate was simply to give the mother-to-be more than the traditionally recommended time in labor. Sobel pulled out a textbook chart that showed a rate between time in labor and cervical dilation and recommendations for lengths of labor. If you didnt dilate a certain amount by every hour or have no dilation for two hours, youd go for a C-section, Sobel said. Actually, they did some studies and they found that if the baby looked good on the monitor, then you could give that baby a little bit more time and those babies that would have had the C-section would go on to deliver. Having been trained to give the mother just two hours, Sobel said she was interested to try out the results from studies that advised that women in labor should be allowed a little more time. And lo and behold, they did deliver, Sobel said. Sobel also pointed out that Seven Rivers low rate for C-sections is based on her work alone. Therefore, larger hospitals with many obstetricians could have higher average rates simply because of some doctors advising against continuing the labor period, which would raise the overall C-section rate. But individual doctors might match her rate. As the babys health is of utmost importance, the question of a C-section is not a major issue. If the doctor says you have to have a C-section, most mothers dont really mind, Sobel said. Sobel, who this year is chief of surgery, has been with Seven Rivers since 2002. She served at the naval hospital in Pensacola before choosing to move to Citrus County. My husband wanted to be by the water so badly, Sobel said to explain her choice. Sobel and her husband have a son who is a senior at Crystal River High School.

We just let them be who they are, explained co-founder Gail Bowen. For the older animals, that means letting them live out their days with attention to their special needs. While the nonprofit sanctuary houses a variety of exotic animals, one species stands out. There is something magical about tigers, said Jaye Parrett, EARS founder and public face. Parrett is a retired Marion County deputy whose long career handling animal-cruelty cases inspired her efforts through EARS. They have an aura. Everyone who visits EARS says when they drive through that gate, something takes over them, she said, citing their role in Chinese medicine. Thats what theyre feeling that tiger medicine. The sanctuary has 23 tigers of various ages. Beyond their size and striking colors, they show an attitude and air of nonchalance, typical of domestic cats. Unlike the black bears that seem to ham it up for attention and rush to food like dogs, tigers remain aloof, eating when they feel like it, stretching in the sun and only acknowledging humans when they need a head rub. But they also like to swim and be submerged in water. They are let out each day in a turnout area, a 30,000-square-foot brush area with a filtered pool. Every single tiger can walk out and swim and be comfortable and run and be a tiger, said Parrett. But without peoples support it wouldnt be possible. Last year, it cost $247,000 to operate the facility, which dates to 1988. The big cats are costly, requiring a large quantity of fresh meat each day. I could feed a thousand dogs for what it costs to feed a tiger, said Parrett, who also coordinates a food supply network for other sanctuaries throughout the country. She and Bowen are volunteers, like everyone connected to EARS. But tigers arent the most expensive diners at the sanctuary. That honor goes to the two large tortoises that enjoy saladbar-size portions of fresh produce. Taking care of the animals and keeping the facility clean is a seven-day-a-week routine. Bowen lives on site and spends much of her time doing those chores. Helping her out is where outside volunteers like Mellodie Farfaglia of Inverness come in. Farfaglia, owner of Mellodies Body Image Gym, has been donating a day a week to the sanctuary since August, after visiting EARS with her mother on a day-pass tour. I fell in love, said Farfaglia. This is therapy. In addition to helping out with the obvious animal chores, she collects donations of bleach, which is used daily in large quantities to clean and sanitize. She has also recruited her daughter and son-in-law as sanctuary volunteers.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.ALIA DOCTORContinued from Page A1 If a doctor says you have to have a C-section, most mothers dont really mind.Dr. Rose Sobelobstetrician.

Veterans Appreciation Week TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL CITRUS COUNTY October 26 November 17, 2013 Honoring our Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans 000GHGD Stocks higher Associated PressThere was no dramatic rally and no records were set. But stocks finished with small gains sprinkled across industries from airlines to steelmakers as the big indexes continued to trade near record highs. All 10 industries tracked in the Standard & Poors 500 index rose. Twice as many stocks rose as fell. The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies rose more than one percent, the biggest gain among U.S. market benchmarks. And some industries rose sharply, including steelmakers, homebuilders, and airlines. While Mondays gains were modest, they continued a powerful rally in the market that has driven the S&P 500 index up nearly 24 percent this year. The S&P 500 closed at records seven times in October, most recently on Oct. 29, when it set its current all-time high of 1,771.95 On Monday the S&P 500 increased 6.29 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 1,767.93. Energy stocks had by far the biggest gains among 10 industries in the S&P 500, followed by technology and consumer discretionary stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 23.57 points, or 0.15 percent, to 15,639.12 and the Nasdaq composite also gained 14.55 points, or 0.37 percent, to 3,936.59. Homebuilders gained after Tri Pointe Homes said it would combine with Weyerhaeusers home building business in a $2.7 billion deal. Last week homebuilders fell after the Federal Reserve said in a policy statement that the recovery in that sector has slowed somewhat in recent months. Tri Pointe rose 77 cents, or 5 percent, to $16.15. D.R. Horton rose 31 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $18.82. KB Home rose 28 cents, or 1.7 percent, to $16.88. Steelmakers rose after Goldman Sachs said the steel sector appears to be heading to a sustainable recovery. AK Steel Holding rose 40 cents, or almost 9 percent, to $5. US Steel rose $1.13, or 4.4 percent, to $26.91. Steel Dynamics Inc. rose 41 cents, or 2.2 percent, to $18.85. So far during the third-quarter earnings season, 68 percent of companies that have reported have beaten analysts estimates, according to S&P Capital IQ. But 60 of the 78 companies that provided fourth-quarter forecasts came in lower than analysts were expecting. Generally earnings have been OK, but revenues have been a little bit light, said Lawrence Creatura, portfolio manager for the Clover Small Value Fund at Federated Investors. Management teams seem to be getting it done through cost-cutting rather than vibrant organic growth. The economy is growing slowly, stubbornly slowly, Creatura said. With just 14 companies reporting earnings on Monday, some investors were on the sidelines. The pace picks up on Tuesday. Investors were also looking ahead to Twitters highly anticipated public offering Thursday and the Labor Departments employment survey on Friday. Eleven other companies are also expected to bring IPOs this week. That means this week will be tied for the busiest of the year. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.60 percent from 2.62 percent. Chevron stock is one of the worst performers in the Dow Jones industrial average this year, up 9.2 percent. That trails the performance of the Dow by 10 percentage points.The nations second-biggest oil company said Friday that its third-quarter net income fell 6 percent. Profit from refining operations fell 45 percent and higher operating costs offset higher oil and gas production and prices.But is this a buying opportunity for investors? Financial analysts are split. Pavel Molchanov of Raymond James called the latest quarterly results not ideal but said there were no major disappointments. He maintains an Overweight rating on the stock and a price target of $130.00. One potential catalyst for the stock is Chevrons investment in liquefied natural gas export water production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. The company expects to spend a record $36.7 billion this year on those projects along with others.Chevron stock is trading nearly 8 percent below its 52-week high set in July, but investors may want to take a closer look.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013 A man of faith?I have to admit that after I read the article about our president in the Religion section of the Saturday Chronicle, I was stunned and confused. The implication of the article is that this is a man of deep faith, as indicated by his daily devotions and seeking scripture to influence his decision. I have a hard time reconciling his implied righteousness with his frequent public demonstrations of a complete lack of humility for anyone who opposes him or his policies. In addition, the fact that our government and military have become hostile and intolerant towards people of faith does not reflect a righteous leader as implied in this article. Perhaps the article is further example of how the liberal media (especially AP) paints a picture of the president to suit their bias. I find it odd that when George Bush was in the White House, the media constantly lambasted him for his religious beliefs and practices. Now the same media cast a righteous person as someone to behold and admire! What have I missed here?Floyd Ford Crystal River Soon after I began reporting on education in the 1950s, I found the principal of Public School 119, an elementary school in Harlem. His office was always open to parents and often to kids. Dr. Elliott Shapiro knew the names of many of his students and paid particular attention to those who especially needed help. In largely black neighborhoods of New York City in those days, there was an active parents movement to have more black principals in public schools. But Shapiro was so respected by many parents of kids at P .S. 119 that they called him the principal of the neighborhood because they felt so welcome there. For most of a year, I spent many days in the school, getting to know him, the teachers and a number of the students. That experience was responsible in large part for my continuing to write on education from then on, as I also kept looking for other principals continually involved with their students. A few weeks ago, I found such an administrator: Seventy-yearold Joann Barbeosch, principal at P.S. 94, an elementary school in Little Neck, Queens. She has been paralyzed from a spinal cord injury and can no longer get to the second floor, where she has access to the classrooms. Instead, she is moored in a cramped first-floor utility room with no ventilation (Paralyzed NYC Principal Holed Up in Cramped Room Waiting for Wheelchair Lift, Susan Donaldson James, abcnews.com, Oct. 16). Students and parents are angrily agitating for the New York City Department of Education to install a lift or elevator, but, as of this writing, shes still marooned. And dig this: In New York City, whose self-described education mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is finishing his third term, the principal would not elaborate on her situation at the school because of a DOE policy that prevents employees from speaking publicly. Have the kids at P .S. 94 heard of the First Amendment? Im told Principal Barbeosch will soon be liberated, but its still vital for students, parents and principals around the country to know she was the center of a community of learning at that elementary school. Parent Gia Ann Bonavita told ABC News: Before, she was all over the place. Kids would constantly pass her office ... Her door was always open and she was in plain sight. She was there and could hear what was going on. According to Bonavita, whose two daughters go to P.S. 94, Principal Barbeosch had a very open-door policy. In my experience, whenever we had an issue, we could always speak to her and surprisingly enough, you never had to make an appointment. An employee of the DOE told the New York Post: This is her life. Her life is school. Watching kids learn, and just being there (Disabled principal stuffed away in schools basement, Laura Italiano, New York Post, Oct. 14). An active, available principal who helps make school a communal learning experience for all involved may positively affect the current splintered state of teachers job satisfaction in American schools: Anywhere between 40 and 50 percent of teachers will leave the classroom within their first five years (that includes the nine and a half percent that leave before the end of their first year) (Why Do Teachers Quit? And Why Do They Stay? Liz Riggs, theatlantic.com, Oct. 18). In this Atlantic article, Richard Ingersoll, a professor of education at the University of Pennsylvania who previously taught in public and private schools, said that one of the reasons he quit teaching was just a lack of respect. Teachers in schools do not call the shots. They have very little say. Theyre told what to do; its a very disempowering line of work. Not in all schools. But in many. Adding to Ingersolls explanation is Emma (no last name given), who formerly taught at a Kansas public school: It stems from this sense that teachers arent real people. But many kids, Ive found, also feel that theyre not real people in school. Like the suddenly surprised fifth-grader in one former Bronx, N.Y., school, which at the time was beginning to focus on individual students rather than on collective standardized tests. You know, this kid said to me, here they know my name! But when there is a principal like Joann Barbeosch or Elliott Shapiro visibly focused on how students can keep discovering their capabilities and on how teachers can stay motivated, educators seldom want to leave. Elliott Shapiro was like the head of a family at P.S. 119. In a Feb. 23, 2003, New York Timesobituary, Wolfgang Saxon wrote of the former Harlem elementary school principal, who died at 91: People of the neighborhood honored Dr. Shapiro for his years of outstanding service to the children and parents of the Harlem community with a dinner in 1964 at Riverside Church. The event drew 450 guests and helped start a college scholarship fund for black students. Principals still have much to learn from Dr. Shapiro. For example, he once said to me: If we do give tests, lets give them on a one-to-one basis one child to each tester. That way, the test would involve real communication between the tester and the child. If a test is being given to a group of 30, how can one tester know which children are daydreaming that morning and which didnt have any breakfast? (from my book Our Children Are Dying, Viking Press, 1966).Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights. He is a member of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and the Cato Institute, where he is a senior fellow. I dont make jokes.

The hospital governance controversy that has torn this community apart for more than three years finally seems headed toward a conclusion. Both of the battling governing boards agree that Citrus Memorial hospital should be taken over by HCA, the nations largest hospital management firm. And both boards agree that a long-term lease is the best option for the community. While we have maintained that a sale of the hospital was the best option to bring finality to the issue, a poorly written state statute that manages the process involving public hospitals makes the lease the only logical avenue. If the hospital was sold using this existing untested legislation, too many restrictive requirements would control how the proceeds from the sale should be spent. By having a long-term lease, the projected $90 million in proceeds from the transaction could be used to meet real community needs in Citrus County. Both the governing board and foundation board have agreed that the proceeds from the deal should become part of a new foundation that is created to meet health care needs of people in our community. All parties involved appear to agree that the foundation principal will not be spent and only the earnings from the $90 million investment will be used to meet the broad community needs. Negotiations are under way to create the framework for who sits on the foundation board. We favor a large communitybased board that is not dominated by any of the political factions that got us involved in this very expensive controversy in the first place. We also like the idea that two of the positions on this new foundation board could be elected by the citizens of Citrus County. Critical to this happening is the concurrence of the county commission. Our elected commission has statutory claims to the hospital proceeds, so it is imperative that the board helps develop what the new foundation will look like and has complete buy-in. The members of the county commission have said publicly they have no designs on using the proceeds for other purposes, but their support of new foundation is necessary to make sure no legal challenges arise. One of the other reasons we originally liked the idea of the hospital sale was that it would be great to see the hospital governing board go away along with the taxing authority it currently holds. The hospital board can levy a 3-mill property tax for all property in Citrus County. Without a public hospital, we see no reason for the taxing authority to continue. Under the lease, the governing board and taxing authority can still exist. We would urge Sen. Charlie Dean to push through legislative changes this next session that reduces the taxing levy to .1 of a mill. This is a real opportunity to reduce the tax burden that exists in our community. This expensive and painful ordeal is almost over. While there is great personal animosity between the individuals involved in this dispute, we urge all involved to work as quickly as possible to sign off on the details. The rebuilding of Citrus Memorial needs to begin. That cannot happen until the keys are turned over to the new owners.

Theyd have to dredge. 2. The manatee lovers will be screaming at the top of their lungs that the big propellers are going to be chopping the manatees in half. I really dont see where this is going. Theres nothing to import. Theres nothing to export. Just dont understand why theyre still wasting money.More money wastedBoy, that ports really moving forward. Another $36,000 for attorneys fees for a Sunshine violation. ... And the consultant says, Hey, you need to get somebody to pay for it, somebody else to come in and do the business of a port. How much did we pay that consultant to tell us absolutely nothing we didnt already know? Just pathetic. Wake up, commissionWhen will our county commissioners wake up and understand were just throwing good money after bad and bad money after good? Now were paying $36,000 of taxpayers money to settle a lawsuit. They keep saying theyre not going to use taxpayers money. Of course they are. Now the feasibility study says we have to build the port on land that we dont own and the company that owns it doesnt show any interest in selling it. Time to give up, go home and forget about it.

Mike Michaud of Maine had endured more than a dozen elections without anyone discussing his sexuality. Now everyone knows hes gay including his mother. Michaud said Monday he told his mom that he was gay just hours before he released an op-ed in which he came out publicly. He said he wrote the piece to end whisper campaigns, insinuations and push-polls that were dogging his gubernatorial campaign. With Michauds announcement, there are now seven members of the U.S. House who are openly gay, along with one member of the U.S. Senate. There are no openly gay governors.Paul dismisses plagiarism claimsNASHVILLE, Tenn. For days now, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has sought to dismiss criticism over similarities between his speeches and material on Wikipedia, accusing footnote police and hacks and haters of unfairly criticizing him. It all began last week when MSNBC host Rachel Maddow accused the senator of lifting passages about the 1997 science fiction film Gattaca from the movies Wikipedia entry when he made a speech on Oct. 28 supporting Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli. The passages are similar, with only a few words changed here and there. Then the website Buzzfeed reported that a Paul speech in June describing the movie Stand and Deliver also included substantial similarities to its Wikipedia entry. Questioned last week about the matter, Paul initially downplayed the allegations. By Sunday, he was acknowledging sloppy speechwriting while criticizing those who had made the plagiarism allegations. The footnote police have really been dogging me for the last week. I will admit that, he told ABCs This Week. And I will admit, sometimes we havent footnoted things properly.Court halts horse slaughterALBUQUERQUE, N.M.

When asked by the host of The John Oakley Show if he has ever used crack, Ford responded by saying only that he was not a drug addict or an alcoholic.

He defiantly questioned the legitimacy of the court and proclaimed himself still Egypts leader. His fellow Muslim Brotherhood members chanted, Down with military rule! Morsis long-awaited trial got off to a chaotic start Monday, with outbursts and interruptions, and it was quickly adjourned until Jan. 8. The dramatic first public appearance for Morsi since the July 3 military coup that removed him from power was meant to be a step toward due process. Instead, it highlighted the challenges facing Egypts interim authorities as they attempt to close a chapter of his presidency, while his Islamist supporters seek to disrupt the effort. Morsi and 14 co-defendants seven of whom are still at large are charged with inciting the killing of protesters who massed outside the presidential palace in December 2012 and demanded that he call off a referendum on a new Islamist-drafted constitution. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON Space is vast, but it may not be so lonely after all: A study finds the Milky Way is teeming with billions of planets that are about the size of Earth, orbit stars just like our sun, and exist in the Goldilocks zone not too hot and not too cold for life. Astronomers using NASA data have calculated for the first time that in our galaxy alone, there are at least 8.8 billion stars with Earth-size planets in the habitable temperature zone. The study was published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. For perspective, thats more Earth-like planets than there are people on Earth. As for what it says about the odds that there is life somewhere out there, it means just in our Milky Way galaxy alone, thats 8.8 billion throws of the biological dice, said study coauthor Geoff Marcy, a longtime planet hunter from the University of California at Berkeley. The next step, scientists say, is to look for atmospheres on these planets with powerful space telescopes that have yet to be launched. That would yield further clues to whether any of these planets do, in fact, harbor life. The findings also raise a blaring question, Marcy said: If we arent alone, why is there a deafening silence in our Milky Way galaxy from advanced civilizations? In the Milky Way, about 1 in 5 stars that are like our sun in size, color and age have planets that are roughly Earths size and are in the habitable zone where life-crucial water can be liquid, according to intricate calculations based on four years of observations from NASAs now-crippled Kepler telescope. If people on Earth could only travel in deep space, youd probably see a lot of traffic jams, Bill Borucki, NASAs chief Kepler scientist, joked Monday. The Kepler telescope peered at 42,000 stars, examining just a tiny slice of our galaxy to see how many planets like Earth are out there. Scientists then extrapolated that figure to the rest of the galaxy, which has hundreds of billions of stars. For the first time, scientists calculated not estimated what percent of stars that are just like our sun have planets similar to Earth: 22 percent, with a margin of error of plus or minus 8 percentage points. Kepler scientist Natalie Batalha said there is still more data to pore over before this can be considered a final figure. There are about 200 billion stars in our galaxy, with 40 billion of them like our sun, Marcy said. One of his co-authors put the number of sun-like stars closer to 50 billion, meaning there would be at least 11 billion planets like ours. Study: Galaxy teeming with planets Researchers estimate Milky Way has 8.8 billion worlds similar to Earth Associated PressWASHINGTON For years, President Barack Obamas personal favorability ratings served as a political firewall that sustained him through an economic recession, grueling fights with congressional Republicans, and the grind of a re-election campaign. But after a rough start to Obamas second term, Americans increasingly view the president unfavorably. And perhaps most concerning for the White House: an Associated Press analysis of public polling shows it has become more difficult over time for Obama to fully rebound from dents in his favorability ratings. Its a slow cumulative effect, Republican pollster David Winston said, adding that personal favorability is a much harder number to move if it starts to go south. The publics increasingly negative view of Obama may be less of a concern for his future given that he is barred from running for reelection. But the president still needs a strong connection with the public in order to rally Americans around his policy proposals and, in turn, to show Congress he remains politically relevant at a time when lame duck status is lurking. The presidents advisers need only look at Obamas predecessor, George W. Bush, to see the impact of a crumbling relationship with the public. Positive impressions of the Republican trailed off in the beginning of 2005 amid public frustration with the Iraq war and the governments flawed response to Hurricane Katrina. Bushs favorability rating never recovered and he struggled to fulfill significant policy goals throughout the rest of his presidency. A series of recent polls show Obamas personal favorability now leaning negative, including an NBC News/Wall Street JournalPoll released last week that found positive views of Obama at the lowest point of his presidency and down 6 points from earlier in October. The drop follows the 16-day government shutdown, the cascade of problems during his health care laws rollout, and another flood of revelations about U.S. government spying. Throughout Obamas presidency, his job approval and personal favorability ratings have generally risen and fallen in tandem. But his favorability numbers, which often reflect the publics gut-level reaction to a politician, generally remained the more positive of the two measures. That, the presidents supporters argue, made the public more likely to give him a chance even when they disagreed with his policies or the direction the country was headed. His strong likability was seen as a particular asset during his 2012 re-election campaign. For the president, its meant that people have cared about what he had to say because they liked him, said Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster. The question for the White House now is whether that dynamic will hold if the publics personal opinions of the president continue to sour. An Associated Press-GfK poll from early October found that 52 percent of Americans didnt think Obama was very honest and were split on whether he was even likable. Obama hits slump Associated PressPresident Barack Obama speaks Monday at an Organizing for Action event in Washington. Polls: President starts to struggle with favorability ratings Associated PressLOS ANGELES The health care overhaul might get a Hollywood rewrite. The California Endowment, a private foundation that is spending millions to promote President Barack Obamas signature law, recently provided a $500,000 grant to ensure TV writers and producers have information about the Affordable Care Act that can be stitched into plot lines watched by millions. The aim is to produce compelling prime-time narratives that encourage Americans to enroll, especially the young and healthy, Hispanics and other key demographic groups needed to make the overhaul a success. We know from research that when people watch entertainment television, even if they know its fiction, they tend to believe that the factual stuff is actually factual, said Martin Kaplan of the University of Southern Californias Norman Lear Center, which received the grant. The public typically gets as much, if not more, information about current events from favorite TV programs as mainstream news outlets, Kaplan said, so people learn from these shows. California Republican strategist Jonathan Wilcox, who has taught a course on politics and celebrity at USC, said the attempt to engage Hollywood was coming too late to influence views, and he doubted fictionalized TV would play into families decisions about health care. This is an attempt to use entertainment pop culture to fix a political challenge, he said. It will be received as a partisan political message, no matter how cleverly its delivered. Hollywood can be a forceful shaper of style and public sentiment. A survey conducted several years ago for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation found that among those who said their feelings toward gays and lesbians had become more favorable, many said a contributing factor was seeing more gay and lesbian characters on TV and in movies. Vice President Joe Biden has credited the 1998-2006 TV sitcom Will & Grace, which featured a gay character, with doing more to educate the public than almost anything anybodys done so far.Supporters eye Hollywood to boost health care law
Lecanto blanks county rival Citrus 3-0JAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentINVERNESS Lecanto sophomore Stephanie Bandstra opened the scoring early for the Panther girls soccer team Monday evening at Hurricane Stadium with a goal in the first two minutes of play. Bandstra would also add the final nail-in-the-coffin goal in the 60th minute to lead Lecanto past the Citrus Hurricanes 3-0. The game was the first meeting for the two intracounty rivals this season. Stephanie (scored) on two balls with some nice crosses, Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin said. She did a really great job and stepped it up. Lecantos first goal came off a Lexi Moore free kick which curved perfectly to Bandstra for the header to the far corner of the net. Moore would get the assist on the first goal before scoring a goal of her own in the 36th minute off a penalty kick putting Lecanto up 2-0 at the half. Lecanto (1-2-1) maintained possession for the majority of the first 40 minutes of play. Citrus (0-1-2) struggled to connect in the offensive zone and left many dumped balls too close to Panther goalkeeper Meagan Houpt, who scooped them up. Houpt (two saves) went untested in the first half as the Canes failed to produce a single shot on goal. The Lady Panthers outshot Citrus 11-2 in the game. The second 40 minutes saw improved movement by the Lady Canes, producing their first shots of the game. Despite the amped up intensity, poor accuracy by Citrus on the pass and lack of constant pressure in the Panther zone saw Lecanto regain its composure in the final 20 minutes. Lecanto freshman Emma Van Cleef set up the third Panther goal by keeping a ball inbound at the left by-line, before feeding a pass to the waiting Bandstra in the box. Bandstra fired immediately, but her first shot ricocheted off Citrus goalkeeper Elizabeth Rinaldi (seven saves), who jumped and fell to make the initial save. Fortunately for Bandstra, the rebound came back to her position and she easily pounded the ball past the sprawled Rinaldi for the goal. Were making some adjustments on the team, Lattin said. The girls did a really good job of acclimating to new positions and the veterans did a great job of working with the new players coming into the program. Most importantly, they played with a lot of heart. They hustled to everything and fought for every ball and they played an 80-minute game. I couldnt have asked for anything better, Lattin added. If we continue with that attitude for the rest of the season, I dont see why we cant be successful. First-year Citrus head coach Mark Cassidy saw many areas the Canes need to improve on, but is optimistic they will meet the challenge as the season progresses. We had trouble maintaining possession, Cassidy said. We had a little trouble with our heads being down on the dribble. I need to see the girls get their heads up a little bit, get a little bit better field vision. A little bit better on distribution (of the ball). Were still waiting for that one player to step up and attack the net, Cassidy continued. Lecanto played a great game. Theyre well coached. They have great team speed. My hats off to them, they did a great job tonight.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins and NFL havent disclosed the nature of the misconduct that led to Incognitos suspension. Martin, a tackle, remained absent from practice Monday one week after he suddenly left the team. Also missing was Incognito, suspended indefinitely late Sunday by Miami for his treatment of Martin. The team and NFL continued their investigation into allegations by Martins representatives that he was bullied, and Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said it was Miami owner Stephen Ross who asked league commissioner Roger Goodell for assistance with that probe. The NFL Players Association also planned to look into the matter. Since April 10, 2012, when the players first came here and I was the head coach, every decision Ive made, everything weve done in this facility has been done with one thing in mind, Philbin said Monday. Thats to help our players and our organization reach their full potential. Any type of conduct, behavior that detracts from that objective is not acceptable and is not tolerated. The 319-pound Incognito, a ninth-year pro, is white. The 312-pound Martin, who is in his second NFL season, is black. Its unclear whether Dolphins coaches and management had any inkling of harassment between players before Martin left the team, and Philbin declined to answer a question about the locker-room culture because of the ongoing investigation. Recent rumblings of locker-room dissension have also included complaints by young players that theyre pressured to pay more than their share when team members socialize together. Philbin also said he was unaware of hazing incidents that involved Incognito such as hacking into a teammates Facebook page on the HBO series Hard Knocks, which chronicled the Dolphins training camp in 2012.

Former Miami star was shot in 2007 Associated PressMIAMI A 23-year-old man was convicted of second-degree murder Monday in the 2007 slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor, who was shot outside his own bedroom after witnesses said he confronted young men who had broken into his home looking for money. The jury deliberated about 16 hours over four days before returning the verdict in the trial of Eric Rivera Jr., who admitted in a videotaped confession to police days after Taylors death that he fired the fatal shot after kicking in the bedroom door. At the trial, he said on the witness stand that his confession was given only under police pressure and amid purported threats to his family. Rivera was also convicted of armed burglary. Although Rivera did not get the maximum first-degree murder conviction, he still faces a potential life prison sentence. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy did not immediately set a sentencing date but will hold a related hearing on Dec. 10. Rivera sat quietly at the defense table with his lawyers after the verdict was announced, showing no reaction or emotion. The courtroom was packed with Taylor and Rivera family members and about two dozen security personnel but there were no outbursts. Neither prosecutors, Taylors family nor the family of the football players girlfriend would comment after the hearing.

Bass took a header from forward Gabe Charles off a Pirates throw-in and fired the ball top left past goalkeeper Willie Niethammer with 27:07 left. Crystal River keeper Kyle Kidd did the rest with strong play in goal, saving all seven shots he faced, including several heading to the top of the net. Im happy with what were seeing because were a young team. This year, we might have our lumps and everything, but I think well get over it, Bass said of the win. Starting a team that only had a few practices together because of other sports wrapping up, Crystal River shook off the rust quickly into the match. After a few minutes of unsure passes and ball control issues, the Pirates settled down and communication improved. The Pirates couldnt generate much offense all game putting just four shots on goal but its midfielders and defense proved too much for the Leopards. Most of the five shots Hernando put on goal were from 20 or more yards away. Kidd made a huge save at the end of first half stoppage time, punching the ball away just below the crossbar on a Habib Garcia shot. Kidd was later bailed out 10 minutes into the second half after coming out of goal to chase down a through pass. Garcia made a move and got past Kidd and kicked a shot on goal.

OSU guard leads AP preseason AllAmerica team Associated PressA lot of people were shocked when Marcus Smart announced he would return to Oklahoma State for his sophomore season. Nobody should be surprised the Cowboys point guard was a unanimous selection to The Associated Press preseason AllAmerica team. Smart was on every ballot from the 65-member national media panel Monday, a no-brainer since he was expected to be among the first players chosen if he had declared for the NBA draft. The last unanimous preseason All-America was Ohio States Jared Sullinger in 2011-12. After averaging 15.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 3.0 steals last season in winning the Big 12 player of year award, it was how the Cowboys fared in the NCAA tournament that had a lot to do with his coming back. I felt like we had a lot more to accomplish, Smart said of the loss to Oregon in Oklahoma States opening game of the NCAA tournament. We were a lot better team than that. Thats just not the way we wanted to go out. It helped me a little bit to get motivated to come back this year. Smart was joined on the preseason All-America team by seniors Doug McDermott of Creighton and Russ Smith of Louisville, sophomore Mitch McGary of Michigan and freshman Andrew Wiggins of Kansas. The 6-foot-4 Smart, who also won the Wayman Tisdale Award as the countrys top freshman, said hes also coming back to improve on his 1.3-to-1 assist-turnover ratio and his 40 percent shooting from the field, including just 29 percent from 3-point range. Still, he said the decision to pass up millions of dollars and return to Stillwater was the most difficult thing in my life. McDermott, the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year last season after averaging 23.2 points and 7.7 rebounds, was on all but two ballots. He enters the season with a chance at joining an exclusive group. A two-time first-team AllAmerica, McDermott could become just the 11th player to be a three-time postseason selection and the first since Patrick Ewing of Georgetown and Tisdale at Oklahoma from 198385. The 6-8 forward is one of four returning starters for the Bluejays and coach Greg McDermott, Dougs father. Creighton moves to the Big East this season. Im looking at this season as an opportunity to embrace a new challenge, he said. We know its much more physical and there are a lot more athletes than were used to. Weve prepared ourselves pretty well. We know its going to be a grind and were looking forward to that. The 6-foot Smith, who received 52 votes, averaged 18.7 points and 2.9 assists in helping the Cardinals win the national championship. He wont have the graduated Peyton Siva with him in the backcourt but coach Rick Pitino will still be calling the shots. I realized how much I loved playing with my teammates and how much fun it is to win, Smith said of returning for his senior year, and this is part of the purpose of being a national champion. Obviously, I wasnt a clear cut first-round pick, so coming back was mainly because of coach, my teammates, the Louisville campus, the community, graduating. Wiggins, just the second freshman to earn preseason honors since the team was first selected for the 1986-87 season, averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds as a senior at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep School. He was on 42 ballots and joins Harrison Barnes of North Carolina in 2010-11 as the only freshmen to earn preseason honors. Wiggins is a member of an outstanding freshman class at Kansas and there arent many people who expect him to be a sophomore in Lawrence. The national magazine covers, the constant attention and comparisons to the like of LeBron James havent been a problem for the 6-8 Wiggins, whose father Mitchell played at Florida State and in the NBA. It kind of grew on me over the years to where Im used to it, Wiggins said of the attention. I just think of it as a blessing. A lot of people dont get an opportunity to be showcased like that. McGary, who averaged 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds, caught the countrys attention during the Wolverines run to the NCAA title game when he averaged 14.3 points and 10.7 rebounds. The 6-10 McGary, who received 34 votes, has been slowed by a lower back condition heading into this season. Right now Im day to day doing stuff on the court, light shooting, limited in what I can do, what theyre allowing me to do, McGary said last week. Theres no target date or anything.

The Yankees also extended offers to a trio of players: second baseman Robinson Cano, outfielder Curtis Granderson and pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. Players accepting are signed for next season. If a player signs elsewhere, his former team gets an extra draft pick at the end of the first round next June as compensation. Others receiving the offers were Atlanta catcher Brian McCann, Cincinnati outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, Cleveland pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, Kansas City pitcher Ervin Santana, St. Louis outfielder Carlos Beltran, Seattle designated hitter Kendrys Morales and Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz. Free agents can start talking contract with all teams today. The amount of the qualifying offer, which increased by $800,000 this year, is set by baseballs collective bargaining agreement as the average of the 125 highest contracts. Among the nine players who received the offers last year, the only ones to stay with their teams were Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, Kuroda and Washington first baseman Adam LaRoche. If a new club signs a player who received a qualifying offer, that team gives up a high draft pick. The top 10 overall selections in the draft cannot be forfeited, and a team signing multiple qualified players would lose a corresponding amount of selections. Cruz served a 50-game suspension this year; he was among 14 players disciplined by Major League Baseball after its investigation of the Biogenesis anti-aging clinic. In 108 games before his suspension in August, Cruz hit .269 with 27 homers and 76 RBIs. He returned for the AL wild-card tiebreaker and went 0 for 4. Among those who did not receive offers were pitchers Bronson Arroyo of Cincinnati, Matt Garza of Texas, Roy Halladay of Philadelphia, Tim Hudson of Atlanta, Josh Johnson of Toronto and Fernando Rodney of Tampa Bay.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE In the confession, Rivera said the group of five young men, all from the Fort Myers area, had driven to Taylors house planning to steal large amounts of cash he kept inside. They thought Taylor, 24, would be out of town at a game against Tampa Bay, but didnt realize until it was too late that he was home with a knee injury. Taylors thengirlfriend, Jackie Garcia Haley, and their 18-month-old daughter, were also home at the time. They were not hurt. Four other men were also charged in the case and three will be tried later. Venjah Hunte, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and burglary charges in a deal that calls for a 29-year prison sentence. Testifying in his own defense, Rivera claimed it was Hunte who brought the 9mm handgun and who shot Taylor. Rivera insisted that he was not told about the burglary plot until the group was driving toward Miami, and that he stayed in the car outside Taylors house the whole time. The murder weapon was never found. Police say it was stuffed in a sock and thrown into the Everglades. Legal experts said Mondays verdict appeared to be a compromise, with at least some jurors doubting the confession and questioning whether Rivera, who was 17 at the time, truly pulled the trigger but not that he played a role in the burglary plot. They believed that he was part of the burglary and was present when it occurred, said David S. Weinstein, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice. There was no eyewitness to put the gun in Riveras hand and that is what at least one juror needed to convict him of first-degree murder. Taylor, a Pro Bowl safety who had starred at the University of Miami, was shot in the upper thigh, damaging his femoral artery and causing massive blood loss. Witnesses say Taylor was shot when he confronted the group with a machete outside his bedroom. A medical examiner said he was essentially dead on arrival at a hospital on Nov. 26, 2007, although doctors did manage to restart his heart for a while. watched the show. If the review shows that this is not a safe atmosphere, I will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that it is, Philbin said. I have that obligation to the players that I coach on a daily basis and I will do that. Before being suspended, Incognito posted several tweets saying he wanted his name cleared. Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth, Incognito tweeted, quoting Buddha. Agents for the two players didnt respond Monday to requests for comment. Martin is with his family in Los Angeles for counseling. Incognito has long had a reputation as one of the NFLs dirtiest players. During his first four years, he led the league in penalties for unnecessary roughness, and the St. Louis Rams got fed up with his undisciplined play and released him during the 2009 season. Theres certain people out there who are just punks, and he wants to be that kind of guy, former Seahawks and Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson said Monday. But because hes a lineman, he gets away with a lot of stuff that people dont see. ... Incognito is way worse than anybody I ever played against. However, there have been fewer such complaints since Incognito joined the Dolphins in 2010. Last year he was voted by the leagues players into the Pro Bowl for the first time. He was the co-winner of the Dolphins Good Guy Award, given to the teams most cooperative player by the local media. He also won frequent praise from Dolphins coaches for his leadership, and this year he was voted by teammates to serve as a member of the Dolphins player council. Philbin said the Dolphins had a team meeting on the matter. Predictably, it was not a topic many players wanted to say much about. Im concentrating on football, Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. At Nebraska, Incognitos career was cut short when he was suspended in 2004 before his junior season following a locker room altercation with a teammate. He also ran into problems with the law while with the Cornhuskers, and they said he repeatedly violated team rules. Martin protected Andrew Lucks blind side at Stanford before joining Miami as a second-round draft pick in 2012. He has been a starter since the beginning of his rookie season, but has struggled while dividing his time between left and right tackle. I can only answer for myself, and yes, I would, tight end Michael Egnew the player whose Facebook page was hacked by Incognito said when asked if he would welcome Martin back to the team. For the first six games this year, Incognito and Martin were the two players protecting Ryan Tannehills blind side, which may help explain his league-high 35 sacks. I think laughter can be a healthy, productive thing, Philbin said. But not in a demeaning way at the expense of an individual.

The team also went down a man at the 17:20 mark when forward Kyle Dove was double yellow carded for unsporting behavior. The Leopards could not exploit the advantage, failing to put quality shots on goal and missing opportunities on four corner kicks. Even with a man down, we were able to keep them out of the net, head coach Bobby Verlato said. The shutout was well earned the defense and the keeper basically won that game for us.

B4TUESDAY, NOVEMBER5, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSJaguars tweak roster to replace WR BlackmonJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed receiver Justin Blackmon on the suspended list and released safety Dwight Lowery from injured reserve. The team also waived tight end D.J. Williams, signed receiver Kerry Taylor off Arizonas practice squad and promoted tight end Danny Noble from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Blackmon was suspended for the rest of the season Friday for another violation of the NFLs substance-abuse policy. Lowery spent the last seven weeks on IR with a concussion. The team said he would be cut when healthy. Taylor played in three games for Arizona this season, totaling three catches for 40 yards. He also has spent time with Green Bay, New England, San Francisco and Minnesota. Noble spent the past four weeks on Jacksonvilles practice squad.Bills cut Flynn; Manuel cleared to practiceORCHARD PARK, N.Y. The Buffalo Bills have released quarterback Matt Flynn in another indication rookie starter EJ Manuel is ready to return from injury. Flynn was cut Monday, three weeks after the Bills signed the sixth-year player. The Bills were in need of experienced depth with Manuel sidelined by a sprained right knee. Manuel has been cleared for practice after missing four games. He could return as early as Sunday, when Buffalo (3-6) travels to Pittsburgh (2-6).Texans coach to stay hospitalized after collapseHOUSTON Texans coach Gary Kubiak will remain hospitalized until at least today after collapsing on the field at halftime of Houstons 27-24 loss to Indianapolis. The team said the 52year-old Kubiak experienced dizziness and a light-headed feeling during Sunday nights game before being taken by ambulance to a hospital. The Texans have not said what caused the problem, saying only that Kubiak has gone through a battery of tests and is with his family. Kubiak hunched over and dropped to his knees at the 24-yard line and he was immediately surrounded by medical personnel. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and put in an ambulance. Kubiak has been head coach in Houston since 2006. The Texans were a trendy Super Bowl pick in the offseason and started 2-0, but the season had turned into a disaster even before Sunday night.Del Rio named Broncos interim head coachENGLEWOOD, Colo. Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio will be in charge of the Denver Broncos while head coach John Fox recovers from heart surgery. Del Rio went 68-71 from 2003-11 as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars before joining Foxs staff last season. Del Rio will still serve as Denvers defensive coordinator. The Broncos are ranked 24th in defense this season, but they were missing star linebacker Von Miller and cornerback Champ Bailey for much of the first half of the season. Fox needs aortic valve replacement surgery and will miss several weeks. He was taken to a hospital near his Charlotte, N.C., home Saturday when he began feeling dizzy while playing golf during the Broncos bye week.From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSRadio host fired, tweeted bounty on the SeminolesCORAL GABLES A former Miami defensive lineman who tweeted that he would pay $1,000 to any Hurricane who takes ... out a Florida State player has lost his job as a sports radio host. Dan Sileo was fired Monday by WMEN, one day after posting the nowdeleted tweet. Sileo said he only intended the tweet as a joke. The South Florida-based station said his actions have no place in sports. Sileo has been criticized for on-air incidents in the past at other stations, including when he said last year he wanted Miami defenders to pull a knife on quarterbacks who run on them, and did not respond to a request for comment. He played for the Hurricanes in the mid-1980s and appeared in 10 NFL games with Tampa Bay in 1987.Knights prepare for showdown with HoustonORLANDO UCF has a chance to take a firm grasp of the race for the American Athletic Conference championship race this week when it hosts Houston. The 19th-ranked Knights (6-1, 3-0) and Cougars are the only remaining unbeaten teams in the league, with the winner of Saturdays matchup becoming the undisputed favorite to capture the AACs spot in a BCS bowl game. The Knights are coming off a bye-week, just like they were earlier this year when they upset preseason conference-favorite Louisville on the road. Houston is averaging more than 40 points per game this season, and leads the nation with 29 takeaways on defense.SEC names football players of the weekBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Auburn tailback Tre Mason, South Carolina defensive back Victor Hampton and Georgia placekicker Marshall Morgan are the Southeastern Conference players of the week. Mason ran for 168 yards and four touchdowns on 32 carries in Auburns win over Arkansas. He set career highs for touchdowns and carries. Hampton had eight tackles, including six solo stops, in South Carolinas win over Mississippi State. He also broke up three passes and forced and recovered a fumble. Morgan kicked three field goals in Georgias 23-20 win over Florida, including a 49-yarder. Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk is freshman of the week. Teammate Justin Britt received offensive line honors and Georgias Garrison Smith is defensive lineman of the week.ASUs Graham gets a scare on recruiting tripTEMPE, Ariz. Arizona State coach Todd Graham was still a little shaken Monday after a small plane he was riding in with his son during a weekend recruiting trip plummeted about 25,000 feet before leveling off. Graham and his son Bo, Arizona States running backs coach, were flying to Dallas to watch a recruit play when they were startled by a loud noise as the plane hit 35,000 feet. Within a few minutes, the plane started into a dive as the pilots fought to control it. The Grahams sat in the back wearing oxygen masks. The pilots were able to level the plane off at 10,000 feet and made an emergency landing in Albuquerque, N.M. The Grahams waited a few hours before continuing their trip on another plane.From wire reports Going bowling? Florida hoping to extend streaks Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida could have two significant streaks at stake Saturday against Vanderbilt. The Gators dont really want to talk about either of them. Not only does Florida have a 22-game winning streak on the line against the Commodores, coach Will Muschamps team probably needs a victory to extend the nations second-longest active bowl streak. The Gators (4-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) have gone bowling in each of the last 22 seasons, dating to former coach Steve Spurriers second year in Gainesville. That streak could be in jeopardy if Florida doesnt beat Vandy (4-4, 1-4). The Gators have games remaining against No. 13 South Carolina (7-2), lower-division Georgia Southern (4-4) and third-ranked Florida State (8-0) and theres only one gimme in the group. So the Vandy game is big really big. Were definitely trying to make a bowl, quarterback Tyler Murphy said. Thats definitely a goal. We want to make a bowl. But were really focused on just beating Vanderbilt. ... Were kind of in a hole right now, so were just looking to keep fighting and find our way out. Florida has dropped three in a row thanks to a combination of inept offense, porous defense, slow starts, costly penalties and missed opportunities. The Gators trailed 20-0 Saturday against rival Georgia, which scored on its first four possessions. Florida rallied, cutting the lead to 23-20 early in the fourth quarter, but faltered down the stretch while trying to put together a game-tying or gamewinning drive. Making matters worse, Muschamps defense couldnt get off the field during the final possession, surrendering an 8-minute, 17-second drive that was aided by Darious Cummings personal-foul penalty. The Gators were penalized seven times for 70 yards. They were flagged four more times for unsportsmanlike conduct, but all were offsetting. That type of game, the emotions were high, we were coming back, safety Jaylen Watkins said. A few guys kinda let their emotions get too high, and it really defeated the goal of winning the game. But that comes with the atmosphere. We have to be more disciplined in that point, especially when were making a good comeback and everything. Florida leads the SEC in penalties and yards, on pace to top the league in those categories for the third consecutive season. Its something we coach every day, Muschamp said Monday. Obviously, were not doing a very good job. Its something we emphasize, something we talk about. We talked about this is an emotional game. We gotta learn to walk away from those situations, and its something Im going to address with the team again today. He has no plans to talk about bowl eligibility, although thats on many minds in Gainesville. He doesnt believe his players need extra incentive down the stretch. Motivation is what you saw in the second half (against Georgia), those guys playing for each other, Muschamp said. Weve got a closeknit football team, a team thats got character and you wouldnt have seen that in the second half if that wasnt the case. So our guys will play. Theyll play hard. Although Florida wasnt bowl eligible in 1990, it wasnt because of its record. The Gators finished 9-2 and ranked No. 12 that season, but missed the postseason because of NCAA sanctions. The last time Florida failed to win enough games to become bowl eligible was 1986, when former coach Galen Halls group went 6-5. Nonetheless, this situation is nothing new at Florida. Just two years ago, in Muschamps first season, the Gators needed wins against Vanderbilt and lowerdivision Furman to extend their bowl streak. They won both and later beat Ohio State in the Gator Bowl to avoid their first losing season since 1979. Everybody is real disappointed right now, Watkins said. Weve lost three in a row and definitely canceled out our chances in the East. Now the main goal is to become bowl eligible. Its pretty weird, but back in 2011, it was kind of the same feeling. We did become bowl eligible and we did have a lot to play for that year. Associated PressFlorida head coach Will Muschamp holds his hand on his head Saturday as he watches the final moments of a 23-20 loss to Georgia in Jacksonville. The second-longest active bowl streak in the nation could be in jeopardy if the Gators lose to Vanderbilt this weeked. Buccaneers not satisfied Playing Seahawks close not enough Associated PressTAMPA The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers arent taking solace in giving the NFC-best Seattle Seahawks one of their toughest games of the season. The reality is the Bucs (0-8) found yet another way to lose Sunday, blowing a three-touchdown lead and wasting an efficient performance by rookie quarterback Mike Glennon in a 27-24 overtime loss on the road. Tampa Bay has led four games in the fourth quarter and lost all of them in the final 89 seconds of regulation or overtime, falling to 0-7 in games decided by three points or less under embattled second-year coach Greg Schiano. That made for a long, crosscountry flight home, one that provided lots of time to watch tape of the game and mull over another missed opportunity. Tough loss, but theres a lot of good things on that tape. ... Things we can build off of, Schiano said Monday, while also stressing that the Bucs cant be satisfied with playing the heavily-favored Seahawks (8-1) close. That was a good football team, in their house. Weve got to build on that, the coach added. What you cant do is come back and say that was good effort. Theres no moral victories. Theres one team that wins and one that loses. We lost, so weve got to find a way to win (the next) game. Glennon completed 10 of his first 11 passes, helping Tampa Bay to a 21-7 halftime lead at CenturyLink Field, one of the toughest places to play in the NFL because of crowd noise. The third-round draft pick out of North Carolina State not only handled the environment but extended his streak of passing attempts without an interception to 141 a three plus-game stretch that began during the second half of a home loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 13. The rookie finished 17 of 23 for 168 yards and two touchdowns against the Seahawks, who failed to force a turnover for the first time this season. The Bucs rushed for a seasonhigh 205 yards and Glennon posted a career-best quarterback-rating of 123.1 in his fifth start. Those are things that are getting us excited and encouraged. Three games without an interception. Thats how we have to play the game, Schiano said. Im mad at myself for not getting us there sooner. Sundays loss leaves the Bucs winless at the seasons mid-point for the first time since 1985, when they opened 0-9 before finishing 2-14. Theyve dropped 13 of 14 dating to last year. Second-year safety Mark Barron, who had an interception and 10 tackles against Seattle, said despite the teams record, morale remains high. It obviously hurts, but I think everybodys fine, Barron said. Weve just got to figure out how to get a win. Rookie Mike James rushed for a career-best 158 yards in his second start in place of the injured Doug Martin, one of four starters the Bucs played without in Seattle. The offense converted seven of eight thirddown situations in the first half, but went 1 for 7 the rest of the way while Russell Wilson was leading the biggest comeback in Seahawks history. Schiano expects injured safety Dashon Goldson (knee) to be back in the lineup against Miami next Monday night. Hes also clinging to hope that Martin (shoulder) and guard Carl Nicks (MRSA) will play again this season. The team continues to come together more and more, and I think thats going to be critical in the second half of the season, Schiano said. Weve just got to get over that hump and get that first one. I do believe well get going, the coach added. Theres some positive things going on with this team. We just need to keep building on that.

wo thirds of people with diabetes die from heart disease or stroke. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure and the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults. About 60percent to 70 percent of people with diabetes suffer mild to severe forms of nerve damage causing pain in the feet or hands, as well as other nerve problems. The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $245 billion. Of the types of diabetes, type 1, in which the body does not produce insulin that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy, is not preventable; only 5 percent of people with diabetes have type 1. The more common type 2 diabetes, in which your body stops using insulin properly, is generally caused by lifestyle factors that can be controlled. Sometimes this form of diabetes can be reversed with diet and exercise. Section CTUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 000GIG1 HEALTH& LIFE According to the American Diabetic Association, nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. Another 79 million Americans have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. In 2010, 10 percent of adults in Citrus County had been diagnosed with diabetes. 1.Maintain a healthy weight. Obesity is the number one contributing factor to developing type 2 diabetes. In 2010, 61 percent of adults in Citrus County were reported to be overweight or obese. If you need to lose weight, seek a nutritionally well-balanced weight loss program and stick to it. 2 Stay active. Exercise helps the body use glucose more efficiently. It also helps keep weight low and some exercises build muscle mass. 3.Watch what you eat. Eating foods high in sugars, fats and cholesterol contribute to raised blood glucose levels, which stimulate the need for insulin production. Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, dietary fiber and lean meats. Reduce or avoid empty-calorie snacks and alcohol, which converts to sugar in the body. 4.Manage your glucose levels. Avoid loading up on a lot of sugar-laden foods dont eat an entire chocolate layer cake! Also, avoid going long periods of time without eating followed by binge eating. 5.Manage your cholesterol. You want your HDL (healthy) cholesterol number higher than your LDL (lousy) and your triglycerides number lower than 150. Cholesterol and triglycerides are fats in the blood. Cholesterol can clog arteries and lead to heart disease. High cholesterol is a contributing factor to diabetes. 6.Dont smoke. Smoking causes all kinds of health problems. As a diabetes risk factor, it raises LDL cholesterol and blood pressure, among other things. 7.Lower your blood pressure. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly a third of all American adults have high blood pressure and two-thirds people with diabetes either having high blood pressure or take medications to lower it. When blood pressure is high, the heart has to work harder and the risk for heart disease, stroke and other problems increases. 8.Know your genetic risks. There are some diabetes risks you cant change or control, but you can be aware and be vigilant in other risk-reducing areas: age (risk increases as you get older), race (African Americans, Mexican Americans, American Indians, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans are at a higher risk), family history and gender (men have a higher rate of developing diabetes and heart disease). 9.Gestational diabetes in pregnancy. Women who have had gestational diabetes are more than seven times as likely to develop type 2 diabetes as women who have not. 10.Learn all you can about prevention and get tested. Get regular medical checkups, including blood tests. For more information, visit the American Diabetes Association online at diabetes.org or the American Heart Association at heart.org.

This is considered stage 0 breast cancer and it is almost always curable with surgery. There is a small but definite risk of cancer in the opposite breast and the risk is about 4 percent to 5 percent in 10 years. She elected to go for removal of both the breasts this is called Contralateral (opposite side) Prophylactic (preventive) Mastectomy (removal of breast) or CPM. Later on, she had reconstructive surgery for both the breasts. This is not medically necessary, but she absolutely wanted it. This is not an isolated case. This scenario is happening more and more commonly in the United States. The rate of CPM has been increasing in the USA at an alarming level. CPM greatly lowers the risk of developing breast cancer in the healthy breast, but it does not increase survival. Also, when both the breasts are removed, complications after surgery are also higher. Among women who do not carry a genetic mutation, cancer experts do not recommend CPM because the risk of developing cancer in the healthy breast is fairly low. Between 3 percent and 9 percent of these women who choose lumpectomy or unilateral mastectomy (removal of only the breast containing cancer) will go on to develop breast cancer in the opposite breast. So, why do women opt for CPM? This was addressed in the Sept. 17 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. Women with breast cancer, especially younger women, are choosing to have their healthy breast removed because of mistaken beliefs about the effectiveness of mastectomy and unfounded fears about the risks for contralateral disease. Dr. Tuttle, one of the editorialists, said he is very concerned that women do not appear to be making wellinformed decisions about their care. Many women have unrealistic expectations of what having their opposite breast removed will do, he said. We did a study that was published last year in which the women we interviewed thought their average risk of getting cancer in the opposite breast over 10 years was more than 30 percent, when the actual risk is about 4 percent to 5 percent. The take-home message is that unless a woman has a BRCA gene mutation as I reported in my article last month, CPM is not indicated it does not help and should not be done.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Proper nutrition especially important for cancer patients When dealing with cancer patients and their illness, oncologists must also pay careful attention to the overall nutritional status of each individual patient. Progressive weight loss and poor nutrition are common findings among many cancer patients. This state of malnourishment can impact our ability to administer therapy, and impact the patients day to day sense of well being. When possible, malnourished cancer patients should be identified prior to the initiation of any type of therapy, and aggressive attempts to improve the nutritional intake should be initiated at once. This will assist in the delivery of a planned course of therapy for their cancer. Cancer patients often suffer from what has been described as cachexia, a group of symptoms that includes weight loss, loss of body mass, weakness, and possibly organ malfunction. Although it often occurs in patients with advanced disease, it can also be seen in patients with localized cancers. The amount of cachexia is also related to the type of cancer and to the extent of the cancer treatment which is required. Many factors play a role in this complicated process of malnutrition. A decrease in the intake of proper amounts of nutrients will lead to cachexia. Often, loss of appetite is an important symptom of a cancer. This poor intake can also be related to side effects from therapy, making it difficult to ingest proper amounts of nutrition, by altering a patients sense of taste of certain foods, or by decreasing a patients taste sensitivity. Certain tumors can also mechanically interfere with the ability to take in an adequate amount of nutrition, such as cancer of the esophagus, throat or stomach. This mechanical block to nutrition can greatly decrease the caloric intake of a patient. Another factor is related to the increased demand for energy placed upon the body with a cancer is present. This increase use of energy by a cancer places a high demand on the body. Certain cancers can also cause abnormalities in the metabolism of proteins in the body. Cancer therapy can also play a major role in the ability to ingest an adequate amount of calories. Surgery will require an additional increase in the energy requirement of a patient to assist in the recovery and healing process that follows a surgical procedure. Often, cancer patients have lost weight prior to surgery, and their ability to deal with this stress is impaired. Chemotherapy may also alter a patients nutritional status. These effects may be due to the effect of the normal cells of the body, or due to side effects of therapy, such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, which may interfere with the ability to consume and absorb appropriate amounts of nutrients. Chemotherapy may also alter taste sensation and cause an aversion to certain foods. Radiation therapy can also interfere with a patients nutritional status secondary to nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or local irritation of the mouth, throat or esophagus, which may limit the intake of calories. These side effects vary widely from one type of cancer to another, and are also related to the location of the body receiving radiation treatments. The clinical relevance of malnutrition and cancer therapy has been difficult to document. Many trials have been undertaken to evaluate the response of treatment with intensive nutritional support, and most have shown no difference in treatment outcome. It is, however, clear that malnutrition can contribute to the overall sense of well being the patient experiences, and in severe cases, can lead to serious medical problems. Therefore, aggressive nutritional support is an important part of all cancer therapy. It improves a patients sense of well being, and will allow the oncologist to proceed with cancer therapy without interruption secondary to malnutrition. This may also allow the oncologist to administer more aggressive treatment. To date, definitive improvements in the control or cure of cancer have not been linked to improvements in nutrition. This, however, does not mean that aggressive nutritional management is not important, since many factors play a role in a successful outcome. One must never forget that a patients sense of well being is also important in their participation with a treatment protocol. Next week, we will discuss some of the means available to us to assist in the nutritional support of cancer patients.Dr. C.

Currently, there are several methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, which is called MRSA, a strain of pseudomonas that to this day is not responding to any antibiotic known to man; a drug-resistant form of gonorrhea, that, while not deadly, infects up to a million people a year and can cause infertility; clostridium difficile (C. Diff), which causes severe diarrhea and kills about 14,000 people a year, it is also associated with antibiotic use and overuse. Most doctors, including otolaryngologists (ENT doctors) use antibiotics. It is important to our practices to combat infection. However, there is a clear and present danger with overuse of antibiotics. For the past 10 or 20 years, the Centers for Disease Control ad Prevention in Atlanta has been monitoring usage and information. There are statistics that suggest that drug-resistant bacteria affect more than 2 million Americans a year and are fatal to more than 20,000 of them. The way things work is the antibiotic kills all types of bacteria, including the good ones, allowing the bad ones to become resistant and flourish, eliminating their weaker competitors to be killed off and the resistant bacteria to prevail. Contributing factors include the fact that doctors try to please patients by giving them antibiotics when they do not necessarily need them. They estimate 50 percent of antibiotic prescriptions are unnecessary. The widespread practice of giving animals antibiotics, keeping livestock healthy to grow nice and fat for market, could be a recipe for disaster. A recent news story reported that 80 percent of all antibiotics used go to livestock. Not only prescribing unnecessary antibiotics but using very potent antibiotics when they are not necessary makes bacteria resistant to the drug after several generations. Research data saw a jump of antibiotic use from the 1980s to the 1990s with a tapering off from the 1990s to 2000. However, lately there is a jump in usage again, which is very disconcerting. Be your own advocate. Next time you have a cold, wait a few days, do not expect you can get an antibiotic and a get a cure within 24 hours and talk with your doctor. Ask him, Is that antibiotic really necessary or can my body fight this problem off on its own? Overuse of antibiotics can be very short-sighted. It takes a team effort. We all need to work together doctors, patients, nurses, hospitals, etc. Otherwise, we have a very scary future ahead of us.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

Over-the-counter medications often misused Good morning! Well its here; the weather has finally started to cool down, (some). As the weather changes, our bodies react as well and cold and flu season sets in. So, first things first: get your flu shot today. Stop by Nature Coast EMS administration office on Homosassa Trail in Lecanto. The office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except holidays. Next item on the agenda: over-the-counter medications. We have all used them at one time or another to treat cold and flu symptoms. This may scare you and quite frankly, I hope it does, because I want you to pay attention to the next few facts about over the counter medication the most frequently used, what they can do to you over time, how often you should or shouldnt take, the risks involved and how to prevent and/or suspect overdosing in children. An over-the-counter medicine overdose occurs when more medicine is taken than is safe to take. Misuse of over-thecounter medications has become a high risk issue involving people who either mistakenly or deliberately take more medicine than needed. Taking more medicine than the required dose, will not make you get better sooner. Some medications, even when taken properly, can build up in their systems causing the risk of injury or death. because the drug is being taken over longer periods of time than safely recommended. Here are some of the more common over-the-counter medications often misused. Acetaminophen is the most common, affecting the liver, and will generally result in a slow, painful failure of the bodys systems. Acetaminophen is the generic name for the medication found in Tylenol and as a secondary medication in some prescription narcotics and in a large number of forms and concentrations. Acetaminophen is used for fevers and/or pain. Cough and cold medicines may include one or more of the following types of medicine: Analgesics and antipyretics. Analgesics are used to decrease pain, and antipyretics are used to decrease a fever. Common names for these medicines include acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen. I hope you see where Im going with this information. If you take one over the counter medication with acetaminophen for pain, then another for your cold, you may have already doubled the amount of acetaminophen recommended. Its all about reading carefully. Always read the label before you take multiple over-thecounter medications and if youre still unsure, call your pharmacist and ask. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Antihistamines are used for a runny nose and can be found in many cold medicines, and antitussives are cough suppressants. Decongestants are for stuffy nose and sinuses and an expectorant loosens mucus and allows coughing to help clear the lungs. If you are a parent or guardian of young children, especially infants and toddlers, here are a few important tips to always remember. Never give a child medicine that is meant for adults. Lowering the dose of an adult mediation and giving to a young child can be deadly. When giving medicine meant for a young child, you need to know their weight, age and whether or not they have any allergies. Always use the small cup, or dispenser that comes with childrens medication. Never use a spoon from the kitchen and never give them more than one medication at a time unless prescribed by their pediatrician. The key is to always keep medicine out of reach of children, and it may sound crazy but this includes middle and high school students. Whether it is prescribed or over the counter, you should be the only one who dispenses medicine to your children. If necessary, keep it under lock and key. If an overdose is ever suspected, call 9-1-1 immediately and if possible, provide the bottle to our EMTs and paramedics. Medicine can be good when used properly and its up to you to protect yourself and loved ones. From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving! And as always, be safe, take care and stay well!

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER5, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Moliere said, If you suppress grief too much, it can redouble. At the bridge table, suppressing knowledge about responders redouble can cause grief. Yesterday, we learned that after the opener bids one of a suit and the next player makes a takeout double, responders redouble promises at least 10 high-card points and denies good support for partners suit. In todays deal, you will see that responder redoubles, then supports his partners heart suit. This shows exactly three-card support and game-invitational values, 10-12 support points and eight losers. (With a stronger hand, responder would jump-rebid three hearts, a game force.) Opener leaps to four hearts. Note that openers second-round pass was forcing. Either the opening side buys the contract or the intervening side plays in something doubled for penalty. And if South had immediately rebid in hearts, it would have shown a minimum (or subminimum) opening bid. Also, Easts two-diamond advance promised no strength. He was just indicating a preference for that suit over spades and clubs. Against four hearts, West leads the diamond queen. East takes dummys king with his ace, cashes the diamond 10, then shifts to a spade. How should South continue? West surely has the spade king for his double. So South is threatened with four losers: one spade, one heart and two diamonds. He should win with his spade ace, cash the club king, play a club to dummys queen, and discard the spade queen on the club ace. Then he leads a trump and claims shortly thereafter.

R MotherMotherRules Dear Annie: I am a mother of three children, but its the oldest my husband and I worry about. When John went to college, he started drinking a lot. I asked him about it then, and he admitted that he might have a problem, but he did nothing about it. That was 10 years ago. He has had two DWIs since, and he drinks every day. I found out from his girlfriend that he actually gets into the shower with a beer in his hand. I recently noticed that the whites of his eyes are yellow, which Im told is a sign of liver damage. Weve tried talking with John, but he denies he has a problem. My daughter and her friends have gone out socially with John, and she says he is fun to be with and then suddenly a switch flips and he yells and curses. He once did it when he and my daughter were alone in the car, and she was so scared, she called the police. John has had many girlfriends, but they all leave. He is good most of the time, and hes a hard worker. His current girlfriend has tried different ways to get him to stop drinking, but he wont do it. We are so afraid he is going to die from all the booze, or that he will get into an accident and kill himself or someone else. How can I get him to see that he is an alcoholic? Please help before we end up having to bury our son. Two Scared Parents Dear Parents: Your son will not stop drinking until he is ready, and you cannot make that happen. His alcoholism may also mask other problems, such as depression, and he might be willing to discuss those issues with a doctor. You also could try an intervention, but please do so only with the assistance of a professional. Right now, contact Al-Anon (alanon.alateen.org) for support and information. Give the website for Alcoholics Anonymous (aa.org) to John and tell him you love him. Thats all you can do. The rest is up to your son. Dear Annie: Ive been a public librarian for 15 years. Despite signs that clearly state, No Cell Phones, patrons largely ignore them. I once had a father who turned his cell on and played loud music for his toddler daughter in the same room where people were doing research. He then got offended when I asked him to turn it off. Do these people have no clue about which building they walked into? Where, in this entire country, is there a refuge from noise? Why cant there still be sanctuaries where people can go to think, do homework and write creatively? Im not saying libraries have to be as quiet as churches, but people who want to talk on their cells need to have respect for others and do so outside of the library. Shhh, Library Dear Library: People arent quiet in church anymore, either. The solution is enforcement. We recall a time when noisy people were told to be quiet by the librarian and were asked to leave if they didnt comply. We recommend you do this whether or not patrons are offended. Your rules apply. If your library has a separate childrens room, that would be a good place to direct parents with rambunctious young children, as well as those who chat or play music without using headphones. (We can see libraries having cellphone rooms in the near future.) Dear Annie: Please pass along this information to Proud Mom, whose military son isolates himself from his peers. We have a Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association in every state, and most of the chapters are near military bases. We are veterans who help veterans, young and old, active or retired, whether theyve seen combat or not. Our website is combatvet.org.
