Members of the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation met together to work on wording for the proposed non-binding letter of intent with HCA. The letter of intent is the start of a formal process that leads to a final 50-year contract forHCA to lease Citrus Memorial. Officials hope to have the letter of intent signed by all parties before Christmas and could have the contract finalized by summer 2014. Members said employees have suffered as the two boards publicly battled for control of the hospital since 2009. The dispute included numerous lawsuits, public ridicule of the hospital and a bleak financial picture that limited employee raises and benefits. HCA agreed to keep nearly all employees for one yearas long as they pass a drug screening and are not fired for cause. Six senior managers and about 12 mid-level directors have change of control severance contracts with the foundation that kick in with a change in hospital oversight. The contracts call for severance payouts if employees are fired without cause or their jobs change significantly. CCHB transaction attorney Ashby Burks suggested all employees could be protected if HCA agrees to include the change of control contracts with the one-year guarantee. Board members also agreed with Burks suggestion that HCA assume the employees accrued paid time off without subtracting from the $140 million purchase price. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty estimated that amount to be a minimum of $1 million. And, while not part of the letter of intent, board members said they want to use some of the net proceeds of the lease for an employee bonus. CCHB trustee Bob Priselac said he hopes employees will stay on the job after the HCA transaction occurs. We want the community to see the same faces, he said. Also Monday, board members discussed other See CMH/ Page A8 CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Everyone agreed: What a great day for a parade, huh? The balmy morning added to the enjoyable endeavor of honoring the countys military veterans with a wellattended parade that preceded the question thrown out by County Commissioner John JJ Kenney as he opened the 11th Hour Memorial Service in Courthouse Square. Kenney, who is retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, said the parade was bigger than it was last year. You wouldnt expect less from Citrus County, the best place in the world to be a veteran, Kenney said. This is their day, our day, Veterans Day. Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisted agreed, adding that Inverness is the most patriotic city in Florida. Its such a great pleasure to be a part of what quite possibly has been and is the largest parade in the Southeast United States held annually to honor our veterans, Plaisted said. This year, we gather here to honor Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. These men and women, the very essence of heroism, were not drafted. They volunteered to put their lives on the line to not only cover the backs of their brothers and sisters in arms, but to travel halfway around the world to fight for the freedom of the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan. Plaisted thanked the Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. As young as many of them are, they are courageous, valiant and true heroes, Plaisted said. The keynote speaker was Capt. Lesley Caron, Commander, 690th Military Police Company, Florida Army National Guard, grand marshal for the parade. This day is dedicated not only to the Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleRetired U.S. Army Staff Sgt.

Fla. cities used cuts to get through recessionORLANDO A new report shows three Florida cities had revenues well below their peaks two years after the recession ended. The Pew Charitable Trusts report released Monday shows Miami, Tampa and Orlando have been using job cuts and dipping into reserves to make up for revenue shortfalls in the wake of the recession. The report also says property tax collections in Tampa dropped by a third largely from 2007 to 2011 because of a change in state property tax law. The change restricted increases in assessed values to 3 percent a year. Miami has lowered its funding of pensions for city workers, while Orlando has continued to keep up with its pension obligations. The report shows Orlando shed 400 jobs, and Miami reduced spending on public safety.

The network recently announced plans to reboot the show with Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer as its star. Spencer acknowledged her new TV project on Twitter last month. Lansbury, who will accept an honorary Academy Award later this week, said Murder, She Wrote was her greatest doorway to the world. I suddenly became a worldwide-known character as Jessica Fletcher and really built an enormous audience, which I have to this day, the 88-year-old said in a weekend telephone interview from her New York home. That was the thing that really made me a star in the minds of everybody. Lansbury had three Oscar nominations and four Tony Awards when she joined the CBS drama, which aired from 1984 to 1996, earning her 12 consecutive Emmy nominations and international acclaim. Shes sensitive about the shows reinvention. I think its a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote, Lansbury said, because Murder, She Wrote will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person ... So Im sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote, even though they have access to it and its their right.Amy Robach to have double mastectomyNEW YORK A month after undergoing a mammogram on Good Morning America, ABCs Amy Robach said Monday she has breast cancer and will have a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery this week. The 40-year-old correspondent admitted she had been reluctant to have the public mammogram but went ahead after GMA anchor Robin Roberts told her that if the story saved one life, it would be worth it. It never occurred to me that life would be mine, she said. Robach joined ABC in 2012 from NBC, where she was a Weekend Today host. She logged considerable time with the cast of ABCs top-rated morning show, filling in for Roberts, who has fought back from a serious blood and bone marrow disease. Producers chose her for the mammogram story because, at 40, shes at the age when its recommended that women regularly check for breast cancer. Married with two children and a full-time job, Robach said she had found plenty of reasons to put it off. In her original story, she emerged from her mammogram telling Roberts and her GMA colleagues that it hurt much less than she thought it would.

Tom loved his family, his countless friends, his fishing partners and his hunting buddies all of whom loved him for his devotion to friends in need, generosity of time and spirit, and the humor that stayed with him until the end.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Jane; son Hugh; youngest brother Stewart; and mans best friend Lucky.

Associated PressWEST PALM BEACH Rep. Patrick Murphy had been a cautious defender of President Barack Obamas health care law for much of the last year, telling constituents in his swing-voting district that the far-fromperfect measure is critical to helping cover uninsured Americans. Then the new health care law made its disastrous debut. The federal health care website repeatedly crashed, blocking millions from browsing insurance plans. Questions about its security mounted. And cancellation notices hit people who buy their own plans, undercutting the presidents vow that those who liked their coverage could keep it. Now the South Florida lawmaker one of nine Democrats representing districts Republican Mitt Romney won in 2012 is distancing himself from the administration and heeding GOP calls to delay key parts of the health care law, illustrating the Democratic Partys challenge as it fights to keep control of the Senate and retake the House next year. Its a complete embarrassment, the Democratic freshman said recently. There are no excuses for what happened here. Nationwide, Democrats are nervous about the implications of defending an already unpopular law in the wake of the botched rollout, particularly in swing-voting districts and states. Last week, 16 Senate Democrats talked with Obama about fears the problems could hamper their re-election prospects, a day after two gubernatorial elections highlighted the partys struggles. Mirroring national polls, half of New Jersey voters and 53 percent of Virginia voters said they oppose the law. The Democratic nominees in those races won 11 percent and 14 percent of those voters, respectively. Republicans attributed Virginia nominee Ken Cuccinellis late surge in his failed bid to his vociferous opposition to the health care law. Hoping for political gain heading into 2014, the GOPs top campaign committees are tying Democrats to the laws messy launch in a series of ads targeting women, who tend to vote Democratic and often make their families health decisions. Murphy and other Democrats anxious about the issue face a test on Friday, when the House is scheduled to vote on a bill to extend the life of individual health insurance policies that otherwise face cancellation under the new law on Jan. 1 because they dont meet minimum coverage standards. The legislation isnt likely to become law, but its the latest GOP tactic to take advantage of the laws rocky launch. Seeking to blunt the fallout, Murphy and other Democrats likely facing tough re-election challenges are pushing legislation to delay the requirement that virtually all Americans have health insurance or pay a fine until the website is certified as fully operational. I am angry that this website is not functioning and until it is completely fixed, it is simply unfair to threaten people with fines, Rep. Ron Barber, DAriz., a top target for Republicans, said in a statement. Some of those same Democrats also have called on the Justice Department to investigate the government contractors who built HealthCare.gov. If the government has purchased faulty or defective services, the taxpayers deserve and should demand their money back, Democratic lawmakers from Texas, Arizona and Illinois wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder. In the Senate, 10 Democrats are lobbying for an unspecified extension of the enrollment period. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., has introduced a bill that would force insurers to reinstate canceled policies that Obama had vowed that people could keep, saying on the Senate floor: This is not to undermine the Affordable Care Act. It is to strengthen it and to keep our promise. Others, like Murphy, are calling for the firings of government officials overseeing the rollout. If I was in charge, I would make sure that some people went ahead and found a new job after this, he told The Associated Press recently. He also pledged to work with Republicans to change the law, saying Its not perfect but its not going anywhere. Lets focus on fixing it. The Democrat has sought middle ground since his victory last year in one of the countrys closest and most costly races. He was among 22 House Democrats who joined Republicans in voting for a one-year delay of the insurance mandate for individuals. He also has supported measures to repeal both a new fee on insurance companies and a tax on medical devices. His swing-voting district hugs much of Floridas Treasure Coast and stretches from the affluent beach towns and gated communities of Palm Beach and Martin counties to the more modest St. Lucie County.LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013 A7 000GAKK One Day Only! 9am-3pm Saturday, November 16, 2013 Florida Public Utilities Community Showcase At the Crystal River National Guard Armory www.CitrusBuilders.com I 352.746.9028 000GHZ1 THERES RETIREMENT.

CMHContinued from Page A1 Officials try to chase vultures from water tower Associated PressLAKE ALFRED Officials in Lake Alfred want to evict some 40 turkey vultures that have been nesting on the citys water tower. Last week, the city commission accepted a $20,332 bid from Terminix to encourage the vultures to move to another location. Turkey vultures are a protected species, so the city cant do anything that will harm them. Terminix plans to install low-voltage electric tracks around the tower to shock the birds without hurting them. I can appreciate the buzzards because most of them go to work every day, City Commissioner Albertus Maultsby said during a meeting in September. But we dont need them sitting on our water tank. The Ledgerof Lakeland reported the vultures took up residence on the water tower eight months ago. While they cant harm the water supply, officials say they can damage the tower. Their urine and regurgitated fluids are corrosive and their sharp claws and beaks can damage surfaces. City officials said theyve tried almost everything to get rid of the vultures. They even installed a buzzer to scare them. But the birds got used to the noise, said Public Works Director John Deaton. The staff also tried putting fake dead buzzards on the tower. But that didnt work either. Deaton said hes got no idea why the vultures chose to make their home on the tower. People dont want to see buzzards on their tower, he said. City Manager Ryan Leavengood said he doesnt believe the tower has been damaged. But once the equipment is installed, theyll have the tower cleaned and inspected. Weve got a big investment with the tower, Leavengood said. This is an insurance policy. And maintaining it is expensive, even without the birds. The last time the city painted the water tower it cost about $20,000. And it costs about $500 to pressure clean it. As expensive as maintenance is, repair is even more expensive, he said. Were just trying to stay ahead of it and keep it maintained as best we can.

US, Europe resume talks on new trade pactBRUSSELS The United States and the European Union sought Monday to get past a rough patch in diplomatic relations to resume talks on a free trade deal that would grow what is already the worlds biggest business relationship. Negotiators for the Obama administration and the EU say an agreement would create jobs and boost growth in the two economies, which represent almost half of global output but are still not fully recovered from recession. The trade volume in goods and services between the two economies totaled 800 billion euros ($1.08 trillion) last year. The negotiations, however, are taking place against the backdrop of European pique over reported U.S. electronic espionage of EU citizens, including high-profile leaders like Germanys Angela Merkel. The Greens in the European Parliament on Monday became the latest political group to call for the trade talks to be frozen in response.Target to open earlier on Thanksgiving DayNEW YORK Target Corp. is the latest retailer to open earlier on Thanksgiving this year. The Minneapolis-based discounter said it will open at 8 p.m. on the holiday an hour earlier than last year. Stores will remain open throughout the night and close at 11 p.m. on the day after Thanksgiving known as Black Friday. Target also will offer hundreds of deals online on Thanksgiving morning that will include almost all deals that will be available in stores. In addition, Target said it will feature 15 onlineonly daily discounts for two weeks beginning on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.Amazon, US Postal Service will deliver on SundaysNEW YORK Amazon is teaming up with the U.S. Postal Service to deliver packages on Sundays. The Seattle company announced Sunday delivery will be available this week to customers in the New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. Amazon and the Postal Service plan to roll out service to a large portion of the U.S. population next year, including the cities of Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix. Amazon expects Sunday delivery to be popular with members of its Prime service, which costs $79 a year and comes with free two-day shipping on many items on the site as well as access to Amazons TV and movie streaming service. But Sunday delivery will be available to all Amazon customers.News Corp 1Q revenue, profit misses expectationsNEW YORK News Corp. said Monday that it had an unexpected drop in revenue in the most-recent quarter, as revenue from Australian newspapers plunged. The results were short of analysts forecasts. Net income in the fiscal first quarter, which ended in September, was $27 million, or 5 cents per share. That compares with a loss of $92 million, or 16 cents per share, a year ago. Adjusted to exclude costs related to a U.K. hacking probe and other items, earnings came to $17 million, or 3 cents per share, which was below the 5 cents expected by analysts polled by FactSet.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013 A9 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,550 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 MN JJASO 1,720 1,760 1,800 S&P 500Close: 1,771.89 Change: 1.28 (0.1%) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 MN JJASO 15,520 15,660 15,800 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,783.10 Change: 21.32 (0.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1589 Declined1444 New Highs131 New Lows35 Vol. (in mil.)2,493 Pvs. Volume3,749 1,545 1,921 1240 1281 118 27 NYSE NASD DOW 15791.4515737.2215783.10+21.32+0.14%+20.44% DOW Trans.7061.057010.037049.62+32.28+0.46%+32.84% DOW Util.504.63499.30502.04-0.42-0.08%+10.80% NYSE Comp.10049.3910008.9410042.94+10.80+0.11%+18.94% NASDAQ3925.343904.723919.79+0.56+0.01%+29.82% S&P5001773.441767.851771.89+1.28+0.07%+24.24% S&P4001292.001284.521291.37+5.51+0.43%+26.55% Wilshire 500018831.9618770.5718817.49+18.86+0.10%+25.49% Russell 20001102.861096.331101.50+1.53+0.14%+29.69% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates Dow Jones hits high Associated PressNEW YORK The Dow Jones industrial average rose to another all-time high Monday on Wall Street. The market edged higher from Friday, when it got a lift from an unexpectedly strong U.S. jobs report for October. The surge in hiring made investors more optimistic that the U.S. economy is getting stronger. Stock trading volume was among the lowest of the year, and bond markets were closed for Veterans Day. Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange held a moment of silence in observance of the holiday. The Dow has advanced for five straight weeks and is up 20 percent so far this year. The last time the Dow had a bigger gain for a whole year was 2003, when it rose 25 percent. Other major indexes have also surged. Stocks have been propelled higher this year by economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve, a gradually improving economy and rising company earnings. Given that the market is up hugely this year, investors may be hesitant to put more money into stocks, said Andres GarciaAmaya, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. At the same time, I dont think people are going to leave at this point, he said. Investors have put $12.7 billion into U.S. stock mutual funds this year, after pulling money out of the stock market in each of the past five years, according to Investment Company Institute data. The Dow rose 21.32 points, or 0.1 percent, to 15,783.10 The index of 30 blue-chip stocks has closed at a record 35 times this year. The Standard & Poors 500 index gained 1.28 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,771.89, just 0.06 point below its own record high reached on Oct. 29. The Nasdaq composite rose 0.56 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 3,919.79. Stocks can rise further from these levels, but the markets rate of ascent will likely slow given the big gains over the last four and a half years, said Phil Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors. The S&P 500 is up more than 160 percent since bottoming out in March 2009. The easy money has been made, said Orlando. We can continue to go higher, but that process is going to be a grind over the next couple of years. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped last week to 2.75 percent, the highest in six weeks, after the government reported last months surge in hiring. BusinessBRIEFS Lululemons shares are wearing thin on investors, but the chains $100 yoga pants still have a strong following.The stock has been choppy since March when Lululemon pulled yoga pants that were too sheer off shelves. The product recall is expected to cost Lululemon as much as $67 million. The company restocked shelves with new pants and its shares recove red, only to fall again in June when the company began searching for a replacement for its popular CEO, Christine Day. Shares recently took another hit as investors worried about a fresh round of quality complaints and the role of the companys newly hired product chief. Shares closed Monday at $68.96, down 9 percent this year. Even so, many analysts recommend buying the stock. Sales of workout gear are growing faster than everyday clothing as people lead more active lifestyles.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 Obamacare disaster This wrongheaded power grab should be repealed and replaced. A better plan would be to give doctors and providers the tax credit for treating the poor. Obamacare gives tax credits where they do no good. It is just another big government power grab to rule the people and punish success. No website would be needed. No navigators to waste money on. All the various nefarious government programs could be eliminated. The poor would get the same treatment as the rich. Doctors should also be relieved of liability if they treat poor, uninsured people. Howard Cannon InvernessFox News and GodThis is in response to the person who did not like Fox News channel being shown on TV at hospitals, etc. Well, my dear friend, if you would check the education and credentials of these fine men and women at Fox, they would far exceed those of our other TV commentators and even the president. Check it out! And for those who want to remove God and any reference to Him ... remember ... nothing could ever destroy the church. It is a permanent building process that will never be crippled by some outside force, never be rendered obsolete, and never be stopped by any power, person or plan.Joan Barrett Homosassa The leaves are turning yellow and orange and red, and others have already fallen. You can smell the seasons in the air. Thanksgivings on my mind and a winter of more discontent. Its been a hard year doesnt it seem like every years a hard year? and I feel like sharing a few thoughts. Still, even in the age of Facebook and Twitter, thisll take more than 140 characters. You see, right now, Im feeling a little low and a bit let down. Theres been a lot of negativity thrown into the fan of public life of late. For those of us my side of 50, well, weve been through the songs to every thing, there is a season and lived long enough to know that political dysfunction may not be quite like the weather, since we can do something about it. Still, sometimes, rainy days and Mondays always get me down. Today were dysfunctional over Obamacare. The website has problems. Weve got a slow start to a new beginning in health care. But, as Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., said, Any time something is new, there is going to be some glitches. And its good to know that House Speaker John Boehner feels that even though the implementation side continues to need to be improved ... the good news is that the competition thats been created has lowered premiums significantly below where Congress thought theyd be when we put the bill together. Oh, wait. They were talking about George W. Bushs Medicare prescription drug benefit. Thats different. Never mind. Look, I know were all wired and iTuned in, but do those in the media have so little faith in American resiliency that they really believe a slow connection or a bug in the program will forever crash our hopes for the security of our familys health? The generation gap has gotten weird, I guess. The 20-somethings are the first generation raised on the widespread use of the Internet. And yet, from what I see in the classroom (teaching part-time at Georgetown University), the young people understand that we get things done in a lot of different ways. We have different tools to communicate, but the point is to communicate. Business websites crash, and businesses get them fixed and thrive afterward. Printers jam, so students write out papers longhand. People enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid by telephone, by (snail) mail, in person. Those three options still exist. The point is, there are other ways to enroll in Obamacare. Maybe the media should be informing us of solutions. Then they wouldnt be part of the problem. The website worries arent the only distractions and discouraging word. Theres the NSA snooping. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who watches the watchmen? It seems we must question even the watchman who watched the watchmen: Edward Snowden gave up everything to expose government intrusion into privacy, and went to the country whose government invented an informer in every home. More negativity, more distraction. With nothing else to do, conspiracy theorists and the partisan media groupies go back to Benghazi. Paging Jimmy Page whos to blame? It doesnt matter. Its all a shell game without solution. And the good news goes unnoticed. When Syria used chemical weapons against its own people, President Obama crafted a Teddy Roosevelt-like approach that resulted in a diplomatic solution, and no American military involvement. Everyone played Monday morning quarterback without a DVR. Wheres the instant replay on political punditry? This week, Syria met a deadline to outline its plan to destroy all its chemical weapon production plants. Where are the pronouncements and triumphal told-you-sos from the media? Maybe theyre too busy hyperventilating over a Halloween costume. No need for ghosts and ghouls this year, though, because weve been haunted enough by past partisanship: The living dead of the debt crisis and the zombies of the government shutdown returned for a sequel. And yet I return to the songs for strength and hope. Songs unite us. Songs energize. When The Beatles sang, Hey, Jude, dont make it bad take a sad song and make it better, they werent just talking about songs. They were talking about life. About politics. Which is why, when I review the negativity and the misinformation from the adults, I turn to the next generation those I teach, those that I will teach and sing, Dont let me down. Because I know they wont. Of course there are problems with Obamacares rollout. All beginnings are difficult. But there are governors governors like Republican John Kasich of Ohio and Democrat Steve Beshear of Kentucky who recognize that health care cant wait. Yes, up to 5 percent of the public who buy individual health insurance will lose their insurance carrier. Those policies may be cheap, but those policies cheat. They dont cover what Obamacare law says they must cover for good, basic insurance. In the long run, people will save money by having to pick up fewer medical bills.

A total of $4 million was budgeted. The CCHB said it will pay the hospital $2 million, budgeted for charity care and capital expenses, once the letter of intent is signed on the lease with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). However, the trustees denied the hospitals request for $2 million budgeted for debt reduction, even though they know the hospital is hurting for cash. Why? They said they need it for ongoing litigation and transaction costs. Thats absurd. However, theres no question that trustees have put themselves on the spot. There are plenty of legal expenses in the CCHBs future, including fees associated with the raft of lawsuits between the CCHB and the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation. A glimmer of good news is that most of those suits may be ended with a settlement agreement after the HCA letter of intent is signed which could be months away. That doesnt help the hospital meet current obligations. Looming large is the breach of contract suit in federal court brought by Josh Nemzoff, the hospital lease/sale transaction agent the CCHB hired, then dumped after he brought interested parties to the table. Hes suing for $750,000; we can assume that legal fees in this case may run the expense up to near $1 million if he prevails. These actions contribute nothing to the health systems declared mission of improving the health and quality of life of the people and communities we serve. Its important to point out that structuring the HCA transaction as a lease (versus a sale) keeps the CCHB on as the hospitals owner and landlord. That means that the group whose ongoing achievements include spending millions in tax dollars on legal fees will still be in place. Whats done is done, though. We look forward to the day that HCA takes over hospital management. The hospitals damaged bond rating should improve, needed investment can take place, and the hospital staff will be supported by a thriving, professional hospital management organization. Citrus Memorial can start healing and rebuilding after years of governance wars. In all this, the CCHB should step back and stay back. We dont need this type of oversight any longer.

This is quite a complex subject and its a complex process. Only one of our county commissioners was there and that was Scott Adams. So I think everybody should be grateful that at least one of our county commissioners, Scott Adams, will have some idea of whats going on with this complex process and may be able to ask some good questions, because at least he made the effort to get some information about this issue that affects every single citizen in Citrus County.

Freedom veterans, but to all veterans who served this nation proudly, Caron said, as she thanked all veterans and the community for support of veterans of all generations and support for the 690th Military Police Company, which is homestationed in Crystal River. Upon returning home from Afghanistan in 2006 and 2011, this community came together to provide a warm homecoming, something a lot of veterans did not receive. I just want to say thank you for that, Caron said. A great mentor once told me less than 1 percent of Americans wear this uniform and so Ive taken my responsibility to uphold this nations colors with pride, Caron said. As I stand before you looking at veterans of various decades World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan War Im overwhelmed with the greatness of patriotism and pride. Im honored to be part of a community that understands the sacrifices of our nations veterans. A Lecanto High School graduate, Caron is a twotime veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom. Throughout my time in the military, I have had superior leadership that has shaped who I am today, Caron said. I challenge each and every one of you to reach out to the local community and share your stories, so that the next generation knows that freedom isnt free. Caron said she recently visited Arlington National Cemetery. I was overwhelmed with emotion as I watched the changing of the guard of our nations unknown in the unfortunate vastness that is Arlington, Caron said. I ask that as a community we not wait for Veterans Day to help us remember those who gave all, but ask ourselves daily how we can say thanks to those who served.

Military suicides on the declineWASHINGTON Suicides across the military have dropped by more than 22 percent this year, defense officials said, amid an array of new programs targeting what the Defense Department calls an epidemic that took more service members lives last year than the war in Afghanistan did during that same period. Military officials, however, were reluctant to pin the decline on the broad swath of detection and prevention efforts, acknowledging that they still dont fully understand why troops take their own lives. And since many of those who have committed suicide in recent years had never served on the warfront, officials also do not attribute the decrease to the end of the Iraq war and the drawdown in Afghanistan. Still, they offered some hope that after several years of studies, the escalating emphasis on prevention across all the services may finally be taking hold. Military suicides began rising in 2006 and soared to a then-record 310 in 2009 before leveling off for two years.Slain worker had concernsPORTLAND, Ore. The longtime employee killed by a cougar this weekend at a suburban Portland animal sanctuary had expressed concerns about safety measures at the facility, her mother said Monday. Renee Radziwon of Portland was killed Saturday while cleaning a cougar enclosure at WildCat Haven in Sherwood. The 36-year-old wife and new mother had worked as an animal care technician and head keeper at the sanctuary for the past eight years. There was no one there to help her. There was no one at that sanctuary. They left her completely alone, her mother, Carol Radziwon, told the Associated Press by phone from Pennsylvania. The sanctuary did not return multiple calls for comment Monday. However, the facility said in an earlier statement that it appeared Renee Radziwon had broken its protocol by being alone in the enclosure.Students punished for self-defenseSPOKANE, Wash. Gonzaga University will review its weapons policy as two students who used a pistol to scare off an intruder appeal their probation for having guns in their university-owned apartment. Executive Vice President Earl Martin said Monday the university will try to turn the incident into a teachable moment by re-examining its no-weapons policy. Students Erik Fagan, 21, and Daniel McIntosh, 23, were informed by the university over the weekend they were on probation and could be suspended or expelled for any more violations of the universitys code of conduct, The SpokesmanReview reported.

After taking control of several appliance stores last week, Maduro vowed late Sunday to step up inspections of businesses selling shoes, clothes, automobiles and other goods to make sure they arent gouging consumers. He also said hell impose limits on profits as the government tries to curb inflation running at 54 percent. In eastern Caracas, a five-block line of bargain hunters, some waiting since Saturday, snaked from a JVG electronics store hoping for the chance to buy televisions, washing machines and refrigerators at deep discounts. Weve been waiting for this for a long time, said Sixto Mesa, a government supporter. Maduro is gambling that by expanding price controls he can regain support he has lost since winning election in April, as inflation soared to a two-decade high and the U.S. dollar shot up on the black market to nine times its official value.Argentine leader still recoveringBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentine President Cristina Fernandez needs one more weeks rest before she can go back to work after head surgery, doctors announced Monday, recommending that she not resume formal activities before Nov. 18. That would add up to a six-week absence for the normally loquacious leader, who has vastly increased executive power during her eight years in the presidency, and many Argentines have wondered out loud who has been making decisions in her stead. For a leader who is usually on television nearly every day and capable of sending dozens of Twitter messages at a time, the situation has prompted no end of conspiracy theories about her intentions. Vice President Amado Boudou, still nominally in charge, has tried to tamp down the speculation. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressTACLOBAN, Philippines Bloated bodies lay uncollected and uncounted in the streets and desperate survivors pleaded for food, water and medicine as rescue workers took on a daunting task Monday in the typhoon-battered islands of the Philippines. Thousands were feared dead. The hard-hit city of Tacloban resembled a garbage dump from the air, with only a few concrete buildings left standing in the wake of one of the most powerful storms to ever hit land, packing 147-mph winds and whipping up 20-foot walls of seawater that tossed ships inland and swept many out to sea. Help. SOS. We need food, read a message painted by a survivor in large letters on the ravaged citys port, where water lapped at the edge. There was no one to carry away the dead, which lay rotting along the main road from the airport to Tacloban, the worst-hit city along the countrys remote eastern seaboard. At a small naval base, eight swollen corpses including that of a baby were submerged in water brought in by the storm. Officers had yet to move them, saying they had no body bags or electricity to preserve them. Authorities estimated the typhoon killed 10,000 or more people, but with the slow pace of recovery, the official death toll three days after the storm made landfall remained at 942. However, with shattered communications and transportation links, the final count was likely days away, and presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said we pray it does not surpass 10,000. I dont believe there is a single structure that is not destroyed or severely damaged in some way every single building, every single house, U.S. Marine Brig. Gen. Paul Kennedy said after taking a helicopter flight over Tacloban, the largest city in Leyte province. He spoke on the tarmac at the airport, where two Marine C-130 cargo planes were parked, engines running, unloading supplies. Authorities said at least 9.7 million people in 41 provinces were affected by the typhoon, known as Haiyan elsewhere in Asia but called Yolanda in the Philippines. It was likely the deadliest natural disaster to beset this poor Southeast Asian nation. Philippine soldiers were distributing food and water, and assessment teams from the United Nations and other international agencies were seen Monday for the first time. The U.S. military dispatched food, water, generators and a contingent of Marines to the city, the first outside help in what will swell into a major international relief mission.

The nations newest state, if rural Colorado residents had their way, would be about the size of Vermont but with the population of a small town spread across miles of farmland. There wouldnt be civil unions for gay couples, legal recreational marijuana, new renewable energy standards, or limits on ammunition magazines. After all, those were some of the reasons five counties on the states Eastern Plains voted on Election Day to approve the creation of a 51st state in the first place. Secession supporters know the votes were symbolic, designed to grab the attention of a Democratic-controlled Legislature. They say the vote results emphasize a growing frustration in conservative prairie towns with the more populous and liberal urban Front Range, which has helped solidify the Democrats power. We cant outvote the metropolitan areas anymore, and the rural areas dont have a voice anymore, said Perk Odell, 80, a lifelong resident of Akron in Washington County, which voted to secede. The five counties share borders, covering about 9,500 square miles and have a combined population of about 29,200. Four of the counties Philips, Yuma, Kit Carson and Cheyenne border Kansas. They are solidly Republican areas that have long identified more with Kansas and Nebraska because of their agricultural background. Towns like Akron, population 1,700, were founded in the 1880s along railroads and thrived as agriculture producers, booming in the 1900s during grain shortages. They began a decline in 1920s that continued through the Dust Bowl and their populations have decreased or remained stagnant since then. What remains are tight-knit communities where grain silos are sometimes the tallest structures around. Other parts of the state, meanwhile, have grown. More than 80 percent of Colorados 5 million residents live on the Front Range. The counties that voted to secede currently only have two state representatives and one state senator. Long shot though it may be, supporters of the 51st state movement say they believe theyve succeeded in getting their message across that lawmakers at the states Capitol arent listening to their concerns. Republicans next year are planning to propose making state Senate seats be apportioned by land mass instead of population to grant a bigger voice to the sparsely populated areas. Republicans hold 28 of the 65 seats in the House and 17 of 35 seats in the Senate. In other states, voters who feel alienated have also recently looked to secede. Conservatives have been working to create the state of Western Maryland, saying theyre fed up with the Democratic majority in Annapolis. And Democrats in southern Arizonas Pima County, angry at Republicans controversial immigration law two years ago, also talked of seceding and creating a Baja Arizona state. Colo. voters back secession Rural areas feel theyre being ignored by liberal urban centers Associated PressWASHINGTON A year after a meningitis outbreak from contaminated pain injections killed at least 64 people and sickened hundreds, Congress is ready to increase federal oversight over compounding pharmacies that custom-mix medications. Before the bill gets to President Barack Obama for his signature, it first has to clear a hurdle put in its path by Louisiana Sen. David Vitter in his ongoing campaign to discredit the presidents health care overhaul. A test vote is scheduled for Tuesday evening. Although the bill enjoys nearly universal support in Congress, Vitter has objected to the Senate voting on it without first voting on his measure to make members of Congress disclose which of their aides are signing up for the health care law, and which are instead being allowed to remain in the Federal Employee Benefit Program. The compounding pharmacy bill is intended to avert a repeat of last years meningitis outbreak associated with the now-closed New England Compounding Center. Subsequent inspections found unsanitary conditions at the companys plant in Framingham, Mass.. Contamination problems with compounded medicines have been reported for decades. But jurisdiction over them has been murky. Pharmacies are typically regulated through state boards, but the Food and Drug Administration regulates manufacturers of medicines.

RISAK CorrespondentTwo and two. Thats the early prediction for the new district that three of the countys girls basketball teams will inhabit. Two of them Citrus and Crystal River should compete, at least by the preseason prognosis, for District 5A-6 honors. The other two Dunnellon and Lecanto appear to be in a rebuilding phase. Their competitiveness will depend on how fast they realize their abilities, and how potent those abilities are. Citrus was last years local powerhouse. The Hurricanes used the senior leadership provided by Liz Lynch and Lindsay Connors to reach the 20-victory plateau for the third straight year. But again, they couldnt surpass West Port, which tied them for first in 6A-6 and then beat them in the district title game. Citrus and Lecanto, which were both in 6A-6 last season, wont have to be concerned with West Port any longer. The Wolf Pack, with its much larger enrollment, moved up to 7A while Citrus and Lecanto fell to 5A. But the Hurricanes 20-8 last year and winners of 63 games in the past three years still have holes to fill, in particular at point guard, a position Lynch controlled for the last three years. First choice to take that spot is sophomore Nashally Morales, who played with the varsity last season. Kiersten Weaver, a junior, will also get plenty of time at that key position. The Canes also have a new coach in Dave Hamilton, who served as outgoing coach Brian Lattins assistant the last three years. For Citrus, its more a matter of reloading than rebuilding.

Atlantas mayor said the city wasnt willing match an offer from suburban Cobb County worth $450 million in taxpayer funding. Braves executives John Schuerholz, Mike Plant and Derek Schiller said the team decided not to seek another lease at 17-year-old Turner Field and began talks with the Cobb Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority in July. Plant, the executive vice president of business operations, said the team has not signed a contract with Cobb County, but hes percent certain it will happen. He said talks broke down with the Atlanta Fulton County Recreational Authority earlier this year over an extension of the teams 20-year lease, which expires after the 2016 season. The stunning news came as the NFL s Atlanta Falcons finalize plans for a new $1.2 billion retractable roof stadium near downtown, which is also scheduled to open in 2017. We started looking at our future way back in 2005, Plant said. We recognized some of the challenges the current site held for us and we recognized some of the opportunities that we were going to pursue to enhance those. Mayor Kasim Reed said the city simply didnt have the funding to match Cobb Countys offer. The Braves immediately launched a website that said the new stadium would be closer to the geographic center of the teams fan base in the sprawling northern suburbs. Bucking the trend of teams pushing for stadiums and arenas closer to the city center, the Braves are abandoning a site just south of downtown that has been their home since the team moved to Atlanta from Milwaukee in 1966. They played at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium through the 1996 season, then moved the following year into a new stadium built right across the street, initially serving as the centerpiece of the Summer Olympics. Despite its relatively young age, Plant said Turner Field needs $150 million in routine improvements and that it would cost $200 million to truly enhance the fan experience. Third Rays player in six years to be honored Associated PressNEW YORK Jose Fernandez of the Miami Marlins and Wil Myers of the Tampa Bay Rays were selected baseballs Rookies of the Year on Monday. Fernandez stood out in a very deep National League class, and the pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers Association of America panel. His debut season was so superb that hes one of three finalists for the NL Cy Young Award, with the winner to be announced Wednesday. Myers took home the American League prize after putting up impressive offensive numbers in barely half a season. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer. Myers became the third Tampa Bay player in six years to be selected Rookie of the Year, joining Jeremy Hellickson (2011) and Evan Longoria (2008). Its awesome, Myers said in an interview on MLB Network. Its a huge honor to win this. Im very excited about it. Fernandez easily topped runner-up Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The right-hander was the fourth Marlins player in 11 years to win, following Chris Coghlan (2009), Hanley Ramirez (2006) and Dontrelle Willis (2003). After the Marlins dumped nearly all of their high-priced stars last winter, Fernandez was a rare bright spot in Miamis 62-100 season. He made the All-Star team at age 20 and went 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 172 2/3 innings. The 22-year-old Myers batted .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs in only 88 games after he was called up from the minors June 18. He immediately added much-needed power to the middle of the Rays lineup, helping them reach the playoffs as an AL wild card. Myers was rated one of baseballs best hitting prospects when he was traded from Kansas City to Tampa Bay last December in a seven-player deal that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Royals. The Rays were 36-33 before Myers arrived this season and went 56-38 the rest of the way. They won a tiebreaker at Texas for the final AL playoff berth and beat Cleveland in the wild-card game before getting eliminated by eventual World Series champion Boston in the division series. Myers finished with 131 points in the balloting to 80 for Iglesias, traded from the Boston Red Sox to Detroit Tigers just before the deadline in late July. Archer and fellow pitcher Dan Straily of the Oakland Athletics each had one first-place vote. Wil Myersnamed American League Rookie of the Year. Jose Fernandeznamed National League Rookie of the Year. Bucs edge Miami to halt losing skid Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. (AP) Mike Glennon threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tackle Donald Penn and led a long fourth-quarter TD drive to put the Buccaneers ahead for good in a 22-19 victory over the embattled Miami Dolphins on Monday night. Bobby Rainey's 1-yard run capped an 80-yard drive, and the Bucs held on the final 10 minutes to become the last team in the league to win this season. Jacksonville beat Tennessee on Sunday, leaving Tampa Bay (1-8) as the league's only winless team entering the game. Playing for the first time since a bullying scandal, the Dolphins (4-5) started slowly before overcoming an early 15-0 deficit to lead 19-15 heading into the fourth quarter. Ryan Tannehill threw touchdown passes of 6 and 19 yards to Rishard Matthews, but got no help from a running game that was limited to just 2 yards rushing. The Buccaneers took the opening kick and put together an impressive nine-play, 76-yard drive for a 7-0 lead that ended when Glennon threw a 1-yard TD pass to tackle Penn, who lined up as an eligible receiver. Tampa Bay, looking for its first win this season, went ahead 10-0 when Rian Lindell made a 24-yard field goal on its second first-quarter possession. Miami running back Daniel Thomas was tackled in the end zone by Lavonte David for a safety and Lindell added a 35-yard field goal to extend the Tampa Bay advantage to 15-0 early into the second quarter. The Buccaneers were poised to add to their lead when Eric Page returned a punt 52 yards later in the second to the Miami 40, but the Dolphins defense stiffened and forced a Tampa Bay punt. Tampa Bay running back Mike James hurt his ankle during the game-opening drive and was taken off the field on a cart.

Kiah Stokes added 10 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks for the Huskies (2-0), who got a scare early in the second half when preseason All-America Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis went down trying for a rebound. She landed awkwardly on her right arm and was down screaming in pain for a few minutes before being helped to the locker room. The injury didnt slow down the Huskies, who were in the middle of a 22-6 run that spanned the halves.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The same could be said of Crystal River. The Pirates did lose five seniors from last seasons 14-10 team that finished first in the regular season in 5A-7, but three starters return in seniors Megan Wells and Katelyn Hannigan and junior Jasmyne Eason. Others to watch are juniors Kiersten Croyle and Cassidy Wardlow, as well as a couple of promising freshmen in Brianna Richardson and Kaylan Simms. At Lecanto, which went 12-13 a year ago, only three seniors Megan Straight, Marie Buckley and Miranda Barber played on last years team, but all three were starters. The Panthers suffered a blow when returning senior Paige Richards, another starter, was suspended for violating team policy. Which would qualify this as a rebuilding, not a reloading, season. Coach Brittany Szunko has said her team would be very, very young, with perhaps two sophomores and two freshmen on the floor at the same time. One of those sophomores, Deanna Moehring, did start for Lecanto last season. The other team in 5A-6 is Dunnellon, which last year was completely dependent upon the play of Tanika Jackson. In an upset of Crystal River, Jackson scored 43 of her teams 51 points. Still, the Tigers finished last in the district, and now shes gone. That does not bode well for the Tigers. The fourth Citrus County team, competing in 2A-3, is Seven Rivers Christian. The Warriors have lost a lot, having had eight seniors on last seasons team. Thats the bad news. The good news is the three returnees were all starters, including the Chroniclesplayer of the year, senior Alexis Zachar. Also back are juniors Alyssa Gage and Tessa Kacer, two other starters, as well as sophomores Katie Dreyer and Gabby Wright. The 6-foot-3 Zachar averaged 14.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and three blocks a game last season, while Gage put up 9.8 points and pulled down 3.1 rebounds. Kacer was a defensive standout (59 steals) for the 2A-3 district champs, who finished at 17-7 The Warriors will have to put together a bench and get some more scoring from another source. Coach Gary Dreyer is counting on his defense to carry the team until that happens. Again, Ocala St. John Lutheran and Leesburg First Academy figure to be Seven Rivers biggest challenges in 2A-3.Citrus HurricanesDistrict: 5A-6. Coach: Dave Hamilton. Last seasons record: 20-8, tied for 6A-6 regular-season championship, runner-up in district tournament. Key returnees: Seniors Shenelle Toxen, Treleasha Simmons, Haley Martone, Micah Jenkins and Chelby Lawler; sophomore Nashally Morales. Key losses: Liz Lynch, Lindsay Connors, Megan Rogstad and Marissa DuBois. Promising newcomers: Junior point guard Kiersten Weaver. Outlook: Citrus has lost a bit, including coach Brian Lattin. But the Hurricanes have a lot of promising pieces returning, among them Shenelle Toxen and Treleasha Simmons. Coach Lattin built a real good program, Hamilton said. I cant fill his shoes. All I can do is keep the program on the tracks. To be successful this year, weve got to be more polished. Weve got to fine-tune things. And once we get those point guards (Morales and Weaver) going, well be OK.Crystal River PiratesDistrict: 5A-6. Coach: Jason Rodgers. Last seasons record: 14-10, 5A-7 regular-season champion, runner-up in district tournament. Key returnees: Seniors Megan Wells and Katelyn Hannigan; juniors Jasmyne Eason, Cassidy Wardlow and Kiersten Croyle. Key losses: Lamechia Richburgh, Ashley Meiman and Rachel Roe. Promising newcomers: Freshmen Brianna Richardson and Kaylan Simms. Outlook: Crystal River plans to challenge Citrus for the 5A-6 championship, but that wont be easy, considering Rodgers has yet to beat the Hurricanes. I want to see (us) beat Citrus, Rodgers said. The closest Ive gotten to them is six points in six tries, but I think were in a good position against them. I think we can chase better this year than in the past. To do that, you have to be able to go to the bench, and this year I can, and not be afraid of losing much. Any of my younger players can run the offense as long as theyre not all out there at once.Lecanto PanthersDistrict: 2A-3. Coach: Brittany Szunko. Last seasons record: 12-13. Key returnees: Juniors Dedra Magee and Cheyenne Biggs; sophomores Deanna Moehring and Taylor Mitchell. Key losses: Marie Buckley, Megan Straight, Paige Richards and Miranda Barber. Promising newcomers: Freshmen Kayla Dumon and Ally Thommasson. Outlook: Although only four players from last seasons team are gone, all were starters, which could make this a difficult season for Szunko. Were giving everyone a chance to provide leadership, she said. Were working on our rotations and were experimenting with a lot of different rotations right now. We just have to focus on ourselves and see what we can do.Seven Rivers WarriorsDistrict: 2A-3. Coach: Gary Dreyer. Last seasons record: 17-7, won district tournament championship. Key returnees: Senior Alexis Zachar; juniors Alyssa Gage and Tessa Kacer. Key losses: Andrea Zachar, Kaitlen Fenton and Tiana Miele. Outlook: The Warriors won the 2A-3 title last season and will try to repeat this season, but one of their Twin Towers 6-foot-2 Andrea Zachar has graduated, as well as seven others. Still, Seven Rivers has the other Tower back, 6-foot-3 Chronicle Player of the Year Alexis Zachar, as well as starters Alyssa Gage and Tessa Kacer. We have a load of inexperience on our team, Dreyer said. I figure we have to replace about 21 points (a game), so the bulk of our points will come from Alexis and Alyssa. Defense will be the key. If, when the bench comes in, we can maintain the status quo, or even better, if were winning by more or losing by less, well be happy. We know well get a good offensive game most of the time from Alexis and Alyssa. If we can get 10 points a game from the rest of the team, we should do good.

The Pirates opened up a 38-25 lead by halftime and coasted to the nondistrict victory. Kiersten Croyle paced a balanced offensive attack with 13 points. Jasmyne Eason added 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Cassidy Wardlow also pulled down 11 boards, while Katelyn Hannigan had nine points and nabbed five steals. The Crystal River defense allowed just one Vanguard player to reach double digit points in the contest. The Pirates (1-0) host North Marion tonight in the teams home opener.Bruins beat Lightning 3-0; Tampas Stamkos injuredBOSTON Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a right leg injury, and the Boston Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Stamkos was hurt with 7:11 to play in the second period. He entered the day tied with Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby as the NHLs leading scorer. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenseman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post. His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle. The Lightning confirmed on the teams Twitter account that Stamkos suffered a broken right tibia. General manager Steve Yzerman said that Stamkos is expected to have surgery today. Djokovic beats Nadal to win ATP FinalsLONDON Defending champion Novak Djokovic beat top-ranked Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4 to win the ATP World Tour Finals on Monday, extending his winning streak to 22 matches and claiming the season-ending title for the third time. Djokovic, who has not lost a match since his defeat to Nadal in the U.S. Open final, returned superbly from the start to move his Spanish rival around the court and prevent him from dictating the points. Nadal hit only nine winners and was broken three times. Nadal and Djokovic have been dominant this season. Nadal replaced Djokovic for the No. 1 ranking last month, but the Serbian player proved again he still has the upper hand on hard courts by extending his head-to-head winning record to 13-7 on that surface.Drew Brees leads Saints past Cowboys, 49-17NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees completed 34 of 41 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints beat the Dallas Cowboys 49-17 on Sunday night.

Brees connected with Kenny Stills on a 52-yard touchdown pass, with Marques Colston on a 22-yard scoring strike, with running back Pierre Thomas for a 1-yard score and with running back Darren Sproles for a 28-yard score. Sproles also had a 3-yard touchdown run, and Mark Ingram added a 4-yard scoring run en route to a career-high 145 yards rushing. DeMarco Murray had 89 yards rushing and a touchdown for Dallas (5-5).From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS
B4TUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSNo surprise: Broncos-Pats in prime timeNEW YORK No surprise: Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are staying on Sunday night. The NFL announced its Week 12 plans Monday. Starting the previous Sunday, the league has the option to switch the prime-time game for a more appealing matchup under its flexible scheduling policy. But the Nov. 24 meeting between Mannings Broncos and Bradys Patriots in New England is as tantalizing as ever. Denver is 8-1 heading into Sundays division showdown against undefeated Kansas City. The Patriots are right behind in the AFC playoff race at 7-2 going into Monday nights game at red-hot Carolina. The Broncos will play on NBCs Sunday Night Football two straight weeks. Manning is 4-9 against Brady with Indianapolis and Denver.Cutler has ankle sprain, Tillman out 2 monthsLAKE FOREST, Ill. The Chicago Bears said quarterback Jay Cutler has a high ankle sprain and top cornerback Charles Tillman will be out for the next two months with a triceps injury. Cutler is considered week to week with the injury, which typically takes several weeks to recover from. Cutler missed a game with a groin injury, but returned for Sundays 21-19 loss to the Detroit Lions. He left the game before the start of the final Bears possession and was replaced by Josh McCown. Tillman was put on recallable injured reserve, which means he is eligible to return to practice in six weeks and play again in eight weeks. The Bears are 5-4 and have seven regular-season games remaining, starting Sunday against Baltimore.Locker out for season with injured footNASHVILLE, Tenn. Titans quarterback Jake Locker will miss the rest of the season with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot that may need surgery. Coach Mike Munchak said Monday losing Locker now is a huge blow for the Titans (4-5). The quarterback was hurt in the second quarter of a 29-27 loss to Jacksonville at the end of an option play. Locker needed crutches and a walking boot to leave the stadium. Locker is 8-10 since becoming a starter, but will wind up missing 14 of a possible 32 starts in his first two seasons. Munchak said they dont know yet if Locker will need surgery. Ryan Fitzpatrick replaces Locker with the Titans hosting Indianapolis on Thursday night.Saints unveil Ring of Honor in SuperdomeNEW ORLEANS The New Orleans Saints have affixed the names of the first three members of their Ring of Honor to the upper deck facade in the Superdome. The names of Archie Manning, Rickey Jackson and Willie Roaf were unveiled during halftime of Sunday nights game. Jackson and Roaf have both been inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the past four years. Jackson played linebacker for the Saints from 1981-93, while Roaf played left tackle for New Orleans from 1993-2001. Manning played quarterback for the Saints from 1971-82.From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSFlorida loses LB Morrison for season to injuryGAINESVILLE Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison is out for the year, becoming the teams 10th player to sustain a seasonending injury. Morrison, who leads the team with 49 tackles, tore meniscus in a knee in Saturdays 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt. Without Morrison, Mike Taylor will move to middle linebacker for Saturdays game at South Carolina and freshman Jarrad Davis will start on the outside. The Gators (4-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) have been ravaged by injuries. The list includes six starters: Morrison, quarterback Jeff Driskel, defensive tackle Dominique Easley, running back Matt Jones and offensive tackles Chaz Green and Tyler Moore. Florida also likely will be without offensive tackle D.J. Humphries against the Gamecocks. Humphries sprained his right knee two weeks ago and is doubtful to play Saturday.No. 2 FSU loses backup QB to knee injuryTALLAHASSEE Florida State backup quarterback Jacob Coker will undergo surgery on his knee today. Coach Jimbo Fisher made the announcement Monday. He said the second-ranked Seminoles wont know how long Coker will be out until after surgery and they learn how much damage there is to the QBs meniscus. Coker suffered the injury during the 59-3 win against Wake Forest. Hes appeared in seven games in 2013 and has a 102.78 quarterback efficiency rating. Coker could consider transferring after the season considering hell be behind Jameis Winston as a junior and wont likely have an opportunity to start in Tallahassee until his senior season.Huskers cast doubt on return of MartinezLINCOLN, Neb. Injured Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez might have played his last snap for the Cornhuskers. Asked on Monday about the possibility of Martinez playing again this season, coach Bo Peini said, I dont know if the chances are real good. Martinez has been limited to four games because of injuries to his shoulder, hip, abdomen and foot. Pelini said the injury to the second and third toes on his left foot has not gotten much better. Tommy Armstrong Jr. has started five games in Martinezs place. Nebraska hosts Michigan State in a key Big Ten game on Saturday.SEC names players of weekBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall and Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley are the Southeastern Conference offensive and defensive players of the week. The league also named Auburn return man/cornerback Chris Davis special teams player of the week on Monday. Marshall rushed for a career-high 214 on 14 carries with two touchdowns against Tennessee. He passed for a third touchdown. It was the highest rushing total in the SEC this season. Mosley had 12 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and two pass breakups in Alabamas win over LSU. Davis scored on an 85yard punt return and also had a 42-yarder.From wire reports BCS title game well within reach for Seminoles Associated PressTALLAHASSEE For the first time all season, Florida State controls its own destiny. The Seminoles are undefeated, ranked second in the Top 25 and the BCS standings, and have earned a berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Florida State will play in its first BCS championship game if it wins its final four games and will be significant favorites in all of them. The last time the Seminoles won the national title was in 1999. I dont think about it, I dont have to. Everybody else tells you, coach Jimbo Fisher said. I try to stay in the moment, live in the moment. ... I have enough problems with Syracuse right now. The Seminoles (9-0, 7-0 ACC) got the help they needed when Oregon lost 26-20 to Stanford on Thursday. It would have been extremely unlikely for Florida State to leapfrog an undefeated Ducks team. Running back Karlos Williams was quick to follow his coach and say the team doesnt pay attention to the hoopla surrounding the constantly fluctuating polls. Fisher has termed conversations about all the what-if scenarios clutter and outside distractions. Alabama and Oregon are clutter. The BCS standings are clutter. The ACC championship is clutter. Fisher and the Seminoles say all that matters is Syracuse (5-4, 3-2) on Saturday. Williams, however, admitted he has alerts set on his phone. Ive got the college football app, the ESPN app, of course, Williams said. By the time it happens, it pops on my phone. BCS standings came on. I was up here for study hall and went home. By the time I walked in the back door, my girlfriends watching it and my sons looking at the TV. Its something that you always look at and pay attention to. It definitely feels good to be No. 2. It feels good to be back up there where youre used to seeing that Seminole head. Williams explained that the standings and rankings means something, but he has to keep those thoughts in the back of his mind. Safety Terrence Brooks simply said, You win all your games, you should be in a good position. Thats really what Im focused on. Alabama opened the season ranked No. 1 and wont move without a loss. The Crimson Tide finish the season with Mississippi State, Chattanooga and No. 7 Auburn. They would face the Eastern division champion, likely a Top 25 opponent, in the Southeastern Conference championship. That leaves No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Baylor as the other two undefeated programs with a chance to play in Pasadena on Jan. 6. The Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0) close with Illinois, Indiana and Michigan and should go into the Big Ten title game without a loss. Those three have a combined record of 13-14. Ohio State may not play another ranked team before a bowl game. The Bears (8-0, 5-0) have the toughest remaining schedule of the three with Texas Tech, No. 12 Oklahoma State, TCU and No. 23 Texas, but probably needs losses from two of the top three to reach the championship game. Fisher has been able to keep his team focused on the moment in high-profile games against No. 8 Clemson and No. 24 Miami. The Gators (4-5, 3-4) will command that kind of national attention as an intra-state rival from the SEC, despite their losing record. In the end, Florida State has the easiest path to the BCS championship game with three regular-season games remaining against teams with a combined 10-18 record. The Seminoles would be crowned ACC champions for a second consecutive season with a win against the Coastal Division representative on Dec. 7 in Charlotte. Fisher has already been asked to compare the 2013 team to the 1993 champion Seminoles. I dont ever reflect on a team till the seasons over and its written and it does what it does, Fisher said. Weve got a lot of work between now and then. Associated PressFlorida States Levonte Kermit Whitfield, left, breaks away Saturday from Wake Forest kicker Chad Hedlund on the way to a touchdown in Winston-Salem, N.C. Jaguars vow to handle success Jacksonville moves on after first win of the season Associated PressJACKSONVILLE There was no Victory Monday for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The previously winless Jaguars eagerly went back to work Monday, no longer reveling in a 29-27 victory at Tennessee that ended a 13-game losing streak. The Jaguars (1-8) were ready to move on, though glad to end talk and speculation about possibly joining the 2008 Detroit Lions (0-16) and the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-14) as the only winless teams in NFL history. It was kind of like (giving the) middle finger to all the people who want to talk about the Jaguars not winning the game or being the worst 0-8 team in history, guard Uche Nwaneri said. Its kind of, Eat this. Thats kind of how it feels. Handling success is the next step for the rebuilding Jaguars. Coach Gus Bradley reminded players that the three most dangerous words are I got it, another way for him to keep players focused on getting better every day. It is important that we go about this journey with humility, Bradley said. Its hard. You win, youre excited, you have a great victory and you come into the locker room and everyones excited. Not to take away from that excitement, but to also have that humility part of it I think is key. If you keep that mindset, you have a better chance to improve and to get on course quickly. I thought our guys handled it really well. Bradley surely could have given his players Monday off, and no one would have complained. But he felt like that would have sent the message that theyve got things figured out after the franchises first win in nearly a year. Coach always talks about eating crumbs, and thats what were going to do, center Brad Meester said. Sometimes after you have that big win, you want to go out and eat that big meal, go out to Ruths Chris. But its about humility. Youve got to continue to stay focused and not get overconfident because youve got one win. Youve got to continue to do the things that you do, and thats what we need to do in here. The Jaguars host Arizona (5-4) on Sunday. The Cardinals have won two in a row. Jacksonville wants to avoid another letdown. The Jags played well at Denver in mid-October and felt like they had turned a corner after a rough start. But they were flat the following week at home against San Diego and lost 24-6. They dont want it to happen again. Were all excited about the first win, but all know its not about just getting one win, receiver Cecil Shorts III said. You want to pile them on. Of course, that doesnt mean the Jaguars didnt celebrate No. 1 for Bradley and general manager Dave Caldwell. Owner Shad Khan gave Bradley a game ball in a raucous locker room, and Bradley responded by giving Khan one and vowed to get everyone else in the room one. It was a very excited, about-time feeling, Shorts said. Were all excited for Gus, really. The way hes been around this building has been great. Hes been upbeat. Hes been the same person since April. We all wanted to win for him. Hes been busting his butt, and were just happy to get it for him. The Jaguars had grown accustomed to seeing games unravel against them. Slow starts, silly mistakes and untimely turnovers were common as they lost their first eight games by an average of 22 points. They witnessed the other side of it Sunday. Chris Johnson fumbled on the first play of the game, and Jacksonville turned it into a 7-0 lead. Jake Lockers interception in the second quarter helped the Jaguars make it 13-0. And when the Titans made it a onepossession game in the fourth they cut the lead to 20-13 and forced a punt they were called for holding in the end zone. The safety gave Jacksonville a little more breathing room. Cornerback Will Blackmon sealed the victory when he stripped the ball from Ryan Fitzpatrick and rambled 21 yards for a touchdown with 2:32 remaining. Believe it or not, we expect to win every week, defensive end Jeremy Mincey said. The outcome hasnt gone our way, but we expect to win. A lot of times, we shoot ourselves in the foot. This game, we didnt do it as much, and that helped us a lot. Cant nobody take any credit from the Jaguars. We played a real solid game.

000GC3T HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CommunityWelcome home ceremonies honor veterans/C6 Dr. Carlene WilsonWELLNESS CORNER Watch out for added sugars Sugar plays an important role in the body as the basic fuel for our cells. Sugars are found naturally in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. However, our bodies are not designed to consume the large quantities of refined sugars that are part of our modern diet. Human beings evolved to appreciate and seek out sweet foods because they were scarce. Technology for refining sugar did not develop until 300 A.D., and even in the early 19th century, wealthy families kept sugar locked up in special wooden sugar chests. Over the last three centuries, sugar has become cheaply and easily available. In 1700, the average American consumed 4 pounds of sugar per year; in 2010 it was 210 pounds. Sugar does have a place in our lives. It is used to preserve foods, give texture and flavor to baked goods, help yeast to rise, and balance the acidity of vinegar and tomatoes. The problem is that we are consuming much more sugar than our bodies need. Overconsumption of sugar is implicated in many health problems, including diabetes, mood disorders, obesity, cardiovascular disease,and tooth decay. During the normal process of digestion, our body slowly breaks down starches, proteins, and fats into the sugars that it needs. When we eat refined sugars, this process is bypassed and the sugar is absorbed almost immediately into the bloodstream. We experience a burst of energy, and then a letdown as our body produces insulin to try to regulate the levels of sugar in our blood. As insulin lowers our blood sugar levels, we begin to crave more sweet foods. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that we limit our daily added sugar consumption to 7 percent or less of our daily calorie intake, about 6 teaspoons (100 calories) for women and 9 teaspoons (150 calories) for men. A single 12ounce can of regular soda contains 8 to 10 teaspoons of sugar, and a glazed doughnut contains 6 teaspoons. The average American now eats about 19 teaspoons of added sugar every day. That is equivalent to 304 calories, about 16 percent of a womans daily caloric intake, and 16 percent of a mans. Sugar is added to many of the items on grocery store shelves. At least half of the added sugar in our diets comes from soft drinks, juices, fruit drinks and sports drinks. Sugar is an obvious ingredient in cakes, cookies, candy, and ice See WILSON/ Page C3 When Jean Bradford arrived at the HPH Hospice House on Aug. 21, neither her son, David, nor the hospice staff thought she would be there more than a week or two. She was so weak, I wasnt sure shed even survive the transfer, said David Bradford of his mothers trip from Cedar Creek Assisted Living. Then came cheer, in the form of her best friend Pauline King, who moved into the Hernando facility on Sept. 4. A former Sister of Mercy nun and schoolteacher, King immediately lifted Bradfords spirit when they first met Dec. 7, 2011, at Cedar Creek, and she reprised that role when she joined her friend at the hospice home. I had been feeling blue because I was sick and it was the holidays, Jean Bradford said of their initial meeting. But then I spoke to Pauline, who had a wonderful outlook. For 20 months at Cedar Creek, the women swapped stories about their lives. King shared anecdotes of her days in the convent and her experience educating rambunctious kids. Bradford spoke of her husband, six children and hobbies, including poetry, drawing and playing the harp. She was a brilliant woman, but so easy to relate to, Bradford said, adding she was surprised to learn King had been a nun.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013 C3 She was very funny, and so full of life when she told stories, Bradford said. That personality wasnt what I associated with nuns. Bradford described their friendship as a sisterhood. They shared a strong faith and gave each other strength, said David Bradford, who serves as the pastor at St. Timothys Lutheran Church in Crystal River. Their relationship continued via phone when Bradford moved to hospice. Then, one day, an aide overheard pieces of conversation from two different rooms that seemed to complement each other. After a few minutes of listening and a peek in each room, she concluded that the women, Bradford and King, were talking to each other, electronically, from across the hall. Bradford hadnt known that her best friend was once again her neighbor. The staff arranged a face-to-face reunion. They ordered a special chair so I could be with her, Bradford said. During her trips across the hall, which she tried to make daily, Bradford brought hand-drawn greeting cards with silly messages and little animals. Pauline was pretty much confined to her room, so I wanted to keep her spirits up, like she had done for me, she said. On days when Bradford felt too weak to make it across the hall, her son visited with King as a proxy. I was a human telegram, David said. I carried their messages of encouragement back and forth. On Sept. 23, when the hospice staff sensed Kings time was near, they wheeled Bradford over and propped Kings arm up on a pillow. I held her hand and started talking about the good times wed had together and in the years before we met, Bradford said. I dont have much of a voice left, but I talked on and on. She reminded King of her faith, saying I know you love the Lord and Im sure hes waiting for you with open arms. I wanted to relay peace, Bradford said. The final words King heard were Bradford singing, You are My Sunshine. That was a wonderful gift she gave her friend, said Anne Black, HPH Hospices marketing coordinator. Even for devout Christians like Pauline, theres a fear of death, but hearing a friendly voice helps calm it. A month and a half since she lost King, Bradford beams when asked about her friend. Though she requires an oxygen tank and speaking is laborious, she happily rattles off memories and praises Paulines compassion and warmth. She makes me think of butterflies, which are a symbol of freedom, said Bradford. We love to enjoy their beauty, but theyre meant to fly away. I know shes in a place of joy with her lord. A reminder of this belief, Bradford keeps drawings of butterflies on her wall. King would have said the same about Bradford, had the timing been reversed, Black said. I interviewed them about their friendship back in September, Black said. It was pulling teeth to get them say anything about themselves. Each just wanted to gush about her friend. I am not burdened with heavy sorrow, Bradford said. When I think of Pauline, its not of her passing, but of the life she had and the happiness she brought me. cream. You might be less aware of the sugar added to ketchup, sauces, breads, breakfast cereals, luncheon meats, dried fruits, low-fat salad dressings, spaghetti sauce, canned and pre-cooked foods, and salty snacks. Even processed foods we think of as healthy contain added sugar. A single serving of yogurt or an envelope of instant flavored oatmeal can contain 5 to 7 teaspoons of sugar. Sugar is added to many dishes served in restaurants because it makes the food taste good. Look at food labels to identify added sugar. The grams of sugar listed in the Nutrition Facts part of a food label include natural sugars found in ingredients such as grain, fruit and milk. To identify added sugar, look at the list of ingredients. Ingredients are listed in descending order by weight. If sugar is listed among the first four ingredients, the product is high in added sugar. Added sugar goes by many names, including high-fructose corn syrup, cane juice, cane syrup, malt syrup, molasses, honey, fruit juice concentrate, and words ending in ose such as glucose, dextrose, maltose, and fructose. Natural sweeteners such as brown sugar, agave nectar, honey and molasses have no nutritional advantage over white sugar. The best way to avoid added sugar is to eat fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy products and proteins instead of packaged and processed foods. When you buy a packaged food, be aware of its sugar content. This is especially true of many health foods and foods marketed for children, such as fruit drinks and snacks.Dr. Carlene Wilson is a board-certified internist and pediatrician in private practice in Crystal River.

Although reserved for terminally ill patients with a life expectancy of less than six months, hospice is not about dying, she said. Its about fulfilling lives. Hospice patients have access to physicians and nurses who are always on call to ease their pain as disease symptoms progress. They also have aides, volunteers and chaplains to address their emotional and spiritual needs. The HPH Hospice Home offers musical therapy, canine companions and opportunities for patients to record their histories to leave their legacy for their loved ones. We ask every patient for his or her bucket list, Black said. We work our hardest to make their dreams come true. One man, for instance, always dreamed of going to Las Vegas; the hospice staff found a local club hosting a casino night and arranged a field trip. David Bradford, who has experienced hospice as both a family member and a pastor, has seen countless people comforted in their final days. Im delighted with the care my mothers received and, as a pastor, Im privileged to be a part of a team that helps walk people through the shadow of the valley with a sense of dignity.

It was worsening and so she went to see her physician. After some work-up, she had a CT scan and it showed a pancreatic mass. A biopsy of the mass showed that it was pancreatic cancer. At the time of diagnosis, her cancer was locally advanced. In other words, it was too big to remove surgically. In pancreatic cancer, the only curative option is surgery. Since she was turned down for surgery, it was very bad news for her. The pancreas is a pear-shaped gland located in the abdomen between the stomach and the spine. It is about 6 inches in length. We do not know the exact cause of pancreatic cancer. We know that smokers are two to three times more likely to develop it. Also, obesity and fatty food increases the risk of pancreatic cancer. Family history and rare genetic conditions are uncommon causes of it. More than 95 percent of pancreatic cancers are adenocarcinoma. Almost 45,000 Americans are diagnosed each year with this kind of pancreatic cancer. Since most of the time, early stage pancreatic cancer is asymptomatic, most pancreatic cancers are diagnosed when it is somewhat advanced. In my patient too, when the diagnosis was made, it was locally advanced. Fortunately, it did not spread to the liver or any other distant organs. Unfortunately, surgery was not feasible. Until recently, this makes it incurable. Recently, there are many new advances in pancreatic cancer. There are two new chemotherapy regimens that have shown to help patients with even advanced pancreatic cancer. In the past, these patients had very poor prognosis. The newer chemotherapy regimens gives some hope. She was started on chemotherapy with FOLFIORINOX this is an aggressive chemotherapy regimen and is not for everyone. The patient needs to be committed and motivated. It carries significant side effects, including lowering blood counts, diarrhea, mouth sores, etc. My patient is extremely motivated and she has excellent family support. She is started on this chemotherapy and she has certain side effects requiring adjustment in dose. I checked her PET/CT scan after six cycles of chemotherapy. It showed her cancer shrunk by more than half. Initially, it was too big to remove, but now the tumor has shrunk. There is a good possibility that she can undergo curative surgery. In short, with modern advances, a hopeless situation can turn into a cure. I suggest to keep hopes alive, fight against cancer and not to quit.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

C4TUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Methods for nutritional support in cancer patients Last week we discussed the importance of maintaining proper nutritional intake for cancer patients. An adequate caloric intake assists in the tolerance of the treatment, recovery from the treatment, and allows us to deliver more intensive treatment programs. Occasionally, patients will require assistance with intake of nutrients, and today we will discuss options for these patients. If a patient has a normal intestinal tract capable of absorbing nutrients, the easiest and least expensive way to provide support is through the intestinal tract. This can be accomplished in one of several ways. The most common method is the utilization of what is termed a nasogastric tube. This method consists of the placement of a small, flexible tube through the nose into the stomach. These can be left in place for many weeks, with a very low risk of complications. Nutritional supplements, such as Ensure, Sustacal, or equivalent products, are then infused through the tube directly into the stomach or upper portion of the small intestine. Placement of these tubes through the nose will still allow the patient to eat and drink in a normal fashion if they desire, and supplement their caloric intake with the tube. If it is anticipated that the requirement of a tube will be longer than six to eight weeks, it is probably best to insert what is called a percutaneous gastrostomy tube, better known as a PEG tube. The PEG tube is a soft plastic tube with a larger diameter than the nasogastric tube. It is inserted directly into the stomach through the skin of the abdomen, and is utilized in the same way as the nasogastric tube. The PEG tube is held in place by rubber gaskets, and is generally tolerated extremely well. Placement of the PEG tube is performed by a surgeon or gastroenterologist, and does require some local anesthesia. This differs from the nasogastric tube, which can be easily inserted in the office without the necessity of anesthesia. Occasionally, we encounter patients who have an abnormal gastrointestinal tract and have difficulty absorbing nutrients. In this situation, physicians often resort to the utilization of what is known as Total Parenteral Nutrition, or TPN. TPN consists of the administration of dextrose (sugar), lipids, amino acids, electrolytes, minerals, and vitamins through an intravenous (IV) route. This form of therapy is very effective, however, it is also very expensive. TPN cannot be administered through a typical small vein in the arm, secondary to the fact that it will cause a great deal of irritation to small vessels with a low flow rate of blood through them. This therapy is generally administered through a central venous line in the subclavian vein located in the region of the shoulder. The subclavian vein is quite large, with a high volume of blood flow, and this minimizes the irritation of the vein from the TPN. TPN solution can be administered every day based upon the patients requirements, and requires careful monitoring of a patients blood chemistries. These represent some of the most common aggressive options available to physicians to assist in the nutritional support of cancer patients. In most patients, adequate intake of high calorie supplements can be accomplished without these procedures. Supplementation of a regular diet with the available dietary products can often be accomplished with aggressive dietary counseling and support. With this arsenal of nutritional support, it is possible to support almost all patients adequately during their cancer therapy. Once treatment is complete and the patients are able to support their nutritional needs without supplementation, these tubes or IVs can be removed without difficulty, and are removed as soon as possible to minimize associated with long-term use.Dr. C.

A primer about dentures Iam going to talk about dentures this week. Over the past few weeks, I have had a number of questions regarding dentures. I will write in general terms while trying to address the questions asked. I hope this is information that helps in your decisions on what to do with your dentures. There are a number of reasons a patient visits the dentist about denture issues. They may have broken them, they may be loose, they may not be able to chew as well as in the past, or they simply may not like the way they look in regards to their smile. Dentures break for all sorts of reasons they fall to the floor or the sink and for those of you who have animals, they get chewed on. Most problems like these are easily fixed, either in the office or with the help of a qualified lab. If your dentures are loose, a reline is often the answer. Relines can improve the fit of a denture, especially an upper denture. A reline will have no effect on how the denture looks or chews (other than the benefit from it being more stable). This is often the best solution to a problem and can cost less than having a new set of dentures made. If chewing has become a problem you are likely a long time denture wearer that has worn the teeth down from where they were originally. The only way to deal with this is to have a new set of teeth made.

Your dentist will know what is best for you. You might also like to know that the quality of the tooth affects the cosmetics of your end result. While on the subject of cosmetics, though the tooth type is very important, it is only one facet that makes a set of dentures look like real teeth. A lot of denture cosmetics come from the proper height of the dentures. Some people have the typical denture look depicted by the chin getting closer and closer to the nose you get a pouty look when your teeth are together or when chewing. The other area that makes a big difference is the fullness of your lips. As we age there is less and less tone to the tissues around the mouth. A properly made set of teeth can help support those tissues to enhance the smile. If anything written here seems as though it applies to you I would urge you to talk to your dentist about it. You will be surprised what dentistry can offer you in 2013. Just as in many scenarios we come across, when all things come together (in this case your dentist, their staff, their lab, the materials used and, of course, the patient) in harmony, awesome results can be enjoyed.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

There are six major salivary glands producing this product the parotid gland which is at the angle of the jaw, the submandibular gland and the sublingual gland, both of which are in the floor of the mouth. They are paired left and right. There are also minor salivary glands that line the oral cavity as well as the tongue and the palate but these contribute less saliva. Approximately 1 to 1.5 liters of saliva is produced in a 24-hour period. The main reason for saliva production is the presence of food in the mouth. The act of chewing can stimulate saliva as it moisturizes, lubricates the food and an enzyme in the saliva starts the initial phases of digestion. Saliva is about 99 percent water. As mentioned, there is an enzyme as well as other products, including potassium and calcium and sodium. Sometimes these byproducts can form salts or stones and a salivary gland stone can block up saliva flow and cause infection. Besides aiding digestion, saliva also has a very positive effect on the teeth and the oral cavity by inhibiting bacterial growth. Things that can affect salivary production include age, side effects of medications such as blood pressure pills Radiation therapy for head and neck cancer is known to dry out the oral cavity and there are some chronic diseases in the autoimmune family such as Sjgrens that also can create salivary problems. An excessive amount of saliva is called sialorrhea, the common terminology being drooling. This can be as a result of benign aging process or could be associated with neurologic disorders such as cerebral palsy and Parkinsons disease to name a few. One of the most common things that I see in my practice related to saliva production are diabetic patients who see a diminishment in production and as a result, dry mouth. Saliva is often maligned but it is necessary and important. It cools hot foods. It buffers acidic foods. It cleans out the oral cavity and it is the first line of defense for bacteria coming into the body. It is a very, very important byproduct of the human body. Life would be intolerable without it.

For more information, call 352-726-4700 or go to www. preciouspawsflorida.com.Special to the Chronicle NEWS NOTES The Art Center Theatres Interlude Series production of Psychic, by Sam Bobrick and directed by Jim Wellborn, was a delightful mix of mystery and comedy. It followed the life of Adam Webster, played superbly by John Hackey, an Air Force retiree who is a mechanical supervisor for Duke Energy. Websters life takes on numerous twists and turns when, time after time, his attempt at writing is subjected to rejections. At his wits end, he places a crayon-crafted Psychic Reading: $25 sign on his apartment window in order to attempt to pay the rent. Surprisingly, an assortment of people drift in for a reading, such as beautiful Laura Benson, played by Sharon Vetter in her 20th community theater show. Her role in Nunsense, as Sister Robert Anne, was her favorite. She said she loves theater because of the opportunity to escape reality and temporarily become someone else. Curious about the authenticity of Websters psychic claim, especially after Webster hands her his homemade business cards written in pencil, Laura asks him to tell her some things about herself. Each time, he bats zero with his supposed readings. Surprisingly enough, her husband, Roy Benson, played by Steve DAndrea, drops in for a reading, and after learning that Webster is a writer, says he is curious about how to murder someone. A flamboyant character, he reveals he has a mistress and is all the while planning a trip to Paris to save his marriage. With a mere slip of the tongue, he says Rita instead of Laura. As a beleaguered mystery writer, Webster begins to give Benson a lengthy list of ways to kill his wife. Benson, in turn, gives him ideas, which he carefully records to be used in his next attempt at mystery writing. As the plays plot unfolds and the line between make-believe and reality comes closer and closer, the players pull out all of the stops in their comedic portrayals. Rita, the mistress, sexy in her slinky black-sequined satin dress complete with a matching black boa (played by Kate Rogers, making her debut with the Art Center), reveals she has a yen for a wellknown gangster, Bubbles, played by Vinny De Maio, who perfected the gangster persona magnificently by bringing down the house with gales of laughter. Webster, the would-be mystery writer, is meanwhile gathering more authentic real-life situations for his next book. Some of the lines that brought believability to the shared insights include: The police lack of interest is mindboggling, by Webster, and Happiness has its own set of laws, by Laura. Soon Laura and Webster are falling in love and her readings become frequently intertwined with storyline attempts for Webster. Johnny Bubbles, portrayed by DAndrea, dressed in a pin-striped suit and a lavender shirt, was a gangster personified, who brought gales of laughter each time he appeared and spoke of his friend Fat Eddie, who took care of people who owed him money. Extremely jealous of Ritas attachment to Webster, Bubbles demands to know where they are. As frequent murders of the characters occur, and Investigator Norris Coslow, played Columbo-style by Tim Stuart, arrives and begins to read the book Webster is writing, he tells us that every case is a jigsaw puzzle with pieces that have to fit in order to solve the mystery of it all. The last page is written and we agree, this time Websters book will be published! Steve DAndreas portrayal of Roy Benson, the husband of Laura, was played with a profound depth of deception. We wanted Webster, as played by Hackey, to be published at last and we were pulling for him as he struggled along and became more adept at readings than writing. Sharon Vetter, as Laura Benson, simply owned her character with compassion for the struggling Webster. Kate Rogers, as Rita Malone, could easily walk into a casting studio and get the part of a gangsters moll. Vinny De Maio, as Bubbles, was my favorite character. Afterward, many spoke to me of his uncanny performance. Tim Stuart, popular media specialist, and a 37-year theater veteran, was a superb detective. The players drew us in and we laughed, we struggled right along with Webster, and our curiosity mounted till the final curtain came down on another excellent Art Center production.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER12, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.If you have not been playing the game long and would like to check that you have basic declarer play down pat, buy Declarer Play at Bridge: A Quizbook by Barbara Seagram and David Bird (Master Point Press). The book starts with suit contracts. There are four pages of basic instruction, then 40 quiz questions in which the reader is shown the dummy and declarers hand (single dummy, as it is called) and asked to choose a line of play. Each answer also includes a useful point to remember. Next, there are six pages about no-trump contracts, followed by 20 single-dummy problems. There are fewer examples because notrump contracts are much less complicated than suit contracts. In this example from the book, how should South play in six hearts? West leads the spade jack. Yes, Souths jump to slam is a tad optimistic. But the plays the thing. South has two losers: one diamond and one club. He has only 11 winners: two spades, six hearts, two diamonds and one club. He must establish dummys club suit. But if it is splitting 4-2, that will require three dummy entries. Luckily, there are three: the heart king, heart 10 and diamond king. After taking the first trick, cash the club ace and play another club. Suppose East wins and shifts to the diamond queen. South wins with his ace, cashes the heart ace, plays a heart to dummys 10, ruffs a club, leads a heart to the king, ruffs another club, plays a diamond to dummys king, and happily discards a minorsuit loser on the club jack, which is now a winner.

He is self-centered, controlling, a liar and a cheat. He manipulated me into buying a house I did not want, and when my mother died in this house, he kicked me out of the room we shared and made me move into the same room she died in. He lied to me about not getting paid for a year, while pocketing $40,000 and spending it on an affair with our best friends daughter. He then closed our checking account. Two years later, he bullied me into buying a business, where I worked for four years without pay. He occasionally paid me a little, but then kicked me out of the business and told me to get a real job. Annie, he tore my car apart so I couldnt drive it, and he keeps me broke all of the time. He went behind my back and put the business and home accounts in his name only. I have walked everywhere within three miles of our house looking for work, with no luck. I have no friends because he cant keep his hands off of them, and Im tired of making excuses for him. If I bring it up, he calls me a liar. When I finally told him I wanted a divorce, he said hell keep the house and the business and there is no money to give me a share. For the past year, Ive been trying to find a lawyer who will take my case for very little money and havent found one. Im stuck here and losing all hope of ever getting out. His lies and false accusations have made our kids mistrust me. I am emotionally, mentally and spiritually exhausted. I cry daily and wish it could all be over. Dont suggest counseling, because I have no money for that and cant get there unless its close enough to walk. Miserable Forever Dear Miserable: This is an abusive marriage emotionally and financially. You dont need to find a counselor within walking distance. Pick up the phone, or go online and contact the Domestic Violence Abuse Hotline at 1-800-787-3224 (thehotline.org). They will help you get out of this mess of a marriage and find a fresh start. Please dont wait. Dear Annie: I work at a library in my hometown. An 80year-old woman who uses the computer is always messing it up. Shes there 10 hours a week and does a lot of damage, but no one wants to hurt her feelings by telling her shes screwing up. This woman is also forgetful and sometimes rude. When someone offers help, she claims she doesnt need it. When she asks for assistance, she gets irritated and says, Thats what I was doing! Shes making things hard for everybody, but my boss is a pushover and wont get involved. Can we do anything? Frustrated in Indiana Dear Indiana: Were not sure how shes messing up the computer in such a way that its a major effort to put things right. Can you post a sign next to the computer with simple instructions for operation? Would the boss be willing to require a training course for all computer users so that she isnt singled out? Does no one have the patience to work with her in spite of her snappish attitude? The computer confuses her, and she doesnt want to admit her weaknesses. Be kind. Dear Annie: Tell Champs Mom that many states have passed legislation or are considering doing so to teach cursive writing in school. Students who have not been taught cursive can neither read it nor write it. Parents are just beginning to realize that their children dont have the skills to read their grandparents notes. Children want to learn cursive. Please give them the opportunity. Long Live CursiveAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
