Speaking rules leave some dumbfoundedCHRISVANORMER Staff writerOne county resident who regularly attends meetings of the county commission has expressed bewilderment at its interpretation of its new Public Participation Ordinance. Confusion started when the board took public comment at the beginning of its Nov.19 meeting when it did not have a chairman to direct the comments. Commissioner Joe Meeks chairmanship had expired and electing his replacement was the second item on the agenda, after taking public comment, which by ordinance has to precede all business, including electing the new board officers. The recently enacted Public Participation Ordinance allows the public to speak at commission meetings before business starts, to comment on items that are not on the published agenda and to take part in public hearing discussions, but not offer comment on motions before the board, a previous practice.

Community bounty Adams seeks ethics ruling MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus County Commissioner Scott Adams is again seeking direction from the state ethics commission to solve a potential dilemma his own. Adams wants an opinion from the state whether he has a conflict of interest in co-owing a Sumter County landfill that could have business ties to Citrus County government. Adams said he will meet this week with acting county attorney Kerry Parsons to develop a list of questions for the ethics commission so he knows what he can or cannot do as a commissioner. Im smart enough that if anybodys got any questions we need to talk about it, Adams said. The issue arose during Tuesdays county commission meeting when the county commission approved an interlocal agreement with Hernando County to transfer garbage if a declared emergency temporarily shuts down either countys landfill. Adams said he thought the proposed Hernando County tipping fees were excessive and that the county could probably get See ETHICS/ Page A8 STEPHEN E.

Families benefit from annual Thanksgiving food giveaway MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESSEleather Ruiz worked hard her entire life, raised four boys and always had enough for a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal. This year, though, times are little tougher for the 67-year-old Crystal River woman, a former Jones Restaurant cook, who said her Social Security is $1 a week too much to qualify for food stamps. So Ruiz, known better locally for her former last name, Brooks, found herself at the Inverness Walmart parking lot Saturday morning stocking up on turkey, beans and rice, and plenty of fresh vegetables thanks to a massive community wide project known as the Thanksgiving Feeding Alliance. This is my first year, Ruiz said, after being escorted to her car by Circuit Court Judge Patricia Thomas, one of more than 200 volunteers on hand for the annual food giveaway. Its a blessing to have Thanksgiving. So many people do care. The Thanksgiving food giveaway is in its 10th year or 12th, or 15th, depending on which organizer is doing the talking. It started by the Rev. Doug Alexander, pastor of The New Church Without Walls, and his church membership giving away free turkeys in old Walmart parking lot. At that time anyone who wanted a turkey could show up and they did, in large numbers. Soon, Alexander enlisted help from other agencies, such as the Salvation Army, and the Thanksgiving Food Alliance was born. About 1,000 families received turkey and the fixins Saturday at the Walmart and the We Care Food Pantry in Homosassa. Its an organized effort. Using The Salvation Armys criteria, families must meet minimum income levels to qualify. Most attending Saturday had prequalified and were given specific times to show up, to avoid a crush of people in the early morning. Still, Alexander said, some came early anyway. When I got here at 5:30, there were some people in line, he said. Scott AdamsCitrus County commissioner. Dems reach breaking point on filibusters CHARLESBABINGTON Associated PressWASHINGTON As Democrats watched Senate Republicans use filibuster powers to thwart more and more of President Barack Obamas agenda and nominees, they wondered how much worse it could get. They finally reached a breaking point this past week when party leaders concluded that what they called GOP obstruction had made a mockery of American democracy. The Senate vote Thursday to curb some filibuster powers, after years of hesitation, will go down as a singular moment. Historians may view it as an inevitable step in the relentless See ANALYSIS/ Page A10 See POINT/ Page A8 See BOUNTY/ Page A9 Point of order NewsANALYSIS Associated PressSen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin of Illinois, speak Thursday during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington after a vote to weaken filibusters and make it harder for Republicans to block confirmation of the presidents nominees for judges and other top posts.

Associated PressFORT MYERS From the outset, U.S. Rep. Trey Radel a brash and digitally savvy darling of the political right was determined to make a name for himself. And so he has. Just 10 months after being sworn in as a member of Congress, the rookie Republican who supported drug testing for food stamp recipients and championed cuts in sheepfarm subsidies, of all things pleaded guilty to cocaine possession, took a leave of absence from politics and checked into a Naples rehabilitation center. It was his purchase of 3.5 grams of cocaine from an undercover officer in Washingtons Dupont Circle neighborhood last month that caused it all to unravel. In a flash, an ambitious lawmaker known to few outside southwest Florida became Americas Cocaine Congressman, the first sitting member of Congress to be charged with a drug offense in more than three decades. I hope, like family, southwest Florida can forgive me for this. Ive let them down, Radel, 37, said in an emotional latenight press conference Wednesday that marked an embarrassing retreat from public view. But I do believe in faith, forgiveness and redemption. The unseemly distinction of a drug arrest has derailed a promising political career and divided this quiet stretch of golf courses and retirement communities with the force of a hurricane. The largest daily newspapers and a growing number of Republican leaders in the district, which includes the Gulf Coast communities of Fort Myers and Naples, are demanding his resignation. Potential challengers are openly weighing primary bids. And late-night talk show hosts are once again focused on Florida. I cant wait for the School House Rock on how a bill becomes a straw, cracked Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Whether Radel remains a politician or a punch line is an open question. His office hasnt answered questions from The Associated Press since his Wednesday news conference. Radel says he has struggled with drug and alcohol abuse off and on for years. Mike Adams, Radels first producer on the Daybreak morning show, said the two would often talk about cocaine and Radels backpacking trips through Colombia after he graduated from college. I would mention, How was the stuff? said Adams, who acknowledged his own struggles with addiction. And he would say, Oh my God, it was phenomenal. Nothing like you get here. By then, Radel was fully ensconced in the tea party movement, emceeing rallies and befriending Republican politicians, including the districts congressman, Connie Mack IV. When Mack called him to say he would be leaving the House and running for U.S. Senate, Radel launched his first political campaign. He was embroiled in a bruising, six-way GOP primary, openly targeting opponents on the Internet and facing criticism for his firms ownership of explicitly named websites. But he was backed by the local tea party movement and Republican luminaries, including Mack and Sen. Marco Rubio, and clinched the GOP nomination. He cruised to victory in November. In the House, Radel aligned himself with the tea party caucus, supporting conservative measures, including one to allow states to drug-test recipients of food stamps. One signature piece of legislation was an amendment to slash federal funds for the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center, which gives grants to sheep researchers, shearers in training and sheeprancher associations. The amendment won enthusiastic support, but the legislation to which it was attached died. Then, on Oct. 29, Radel attempted to buy $250 worth of cocaine from an undercover police officer in a Washington, D.C., neighborhood. For the next three weeks, Radel didnt skip a beat. He held a re-election fundraiser at a Naples country club, continued to cast votes and bashed Obamacare on Twitter. He did not tell House leaders about the bust until Tuesday, when reporters broke the news about the case. On Wednesday, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge and was sentenced to a years probation.A2SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE New Location Inside Crystal River Mall (Next to K-Mart) Must present coupon.

FHP is investigating the 6:30p.m. accident. From staff reports Page A3SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerHOMOSASSA Getting herself to class on time wont be much of an issue for Brenda Richards, now that shes a car owner. On Thursday, Richards took the keys to a 2003 Toyota Corolla with 50,000 miles on the odometer as part of a United Way of Citrus County program to provide cars to people who can use them to improve their lives. Amy Meek, president and chief executive officer of United Way of Citrus a nonprofit organization that works in a coalition of charitable groups to pool fundraising and support described how Richards was chosen to receive the car. Brenda is working at WTI, Meek said, referring to Withlacoochee Technical Institute. United Way was able to help her with her GED. She earned her GED. She will start a new program in January: automotive service development. To get her GED, shes been catching a ride with a friend. The GED class schedule was a little easier to attend than the schedule Richards will start in January. Its five days a week, full time, Meek said. So she needs this car. She needs to depend on her own transportation to get there every day. Thats why shes such a great candidate, because we know this is the catalyst to more success for her future. Ron Deak, general manager of Village Toyota, said he wanted occasionally to give a car to someone who needed it. Someone who didnt have a shot, Deak said. They just needed a little boost. I wanted to give a car away, but I didnt know who to give it to. Deak said he spoke about his predicament to County Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney, who was buying a vehicle at the time. Kenney put Deak in touch with Meek, who leads a panel that chooses recipients of cars. The panel includes Amy Engelken, the countys Department of Community Services director; Heidi Blanchette, director of the countys Housing Services Division; and Sam Dininno, Veterans Services officer. The panel makes sure the cars are given to people who will use them to improve their lives. Need is just one of the assessment criteria. We also look at their income to make sure they can sustain the car with insurance and repairs, Blanchette said. Thats an important factor. A charitable agency within the United Way coalition recommends a person to the panel. Its members then go through applications, select one and present it to Deak, who finds a car to offer. As Richards will study to become a mechanic, Deak also showed her around his dealerships service area and hinted she should apply for a vacancy when she becomes qualified. United Way puts woman in the drivers seat MIKEWRIGHT ChronicleA Hernando home was destroyed by fire Friday night and authorities are considering the blaze suspicious. Citrus County Sheriffs Fire Rescue responded to the 10:49 p.m. fire at 3677 E. Squaw Valley Drive to find the 1,000-square-foot house fully involved with a second structure in danger. Firefighters brought the fire under control by 11:11 p.m. and the second structure was not damaged, a news release stated. No one was home at the time. The house and its contents were valued at $57,750. The state Fire Marshals office was called to investigate due to the fire being suspicious in nature, the release stated.

For more photos from the Grand Prix, click on this story at www.chronicleonline.com. The third annual Inverness Grand Prix and Motorsports Festival got under way Saturday, with go-karts racing around the new courthouse at speeds approaching 70 mph, according to the announcer for the event. About 1,500 to 2,000 people came out for exciting go-kart racing Saturday during the third annual Inverness Grand Prix and Motorsports Festival on the Courthouse Square. This years race included several new safety measures designed to protect drivers and spectators alike. A waist-high mesh screen surrounded the length of the course, dividing spectators from the roadway. And the city invested about $8,000 in durable plastic barriers at every turn to complement hay bales, which kept skidding carts from crashing. The crowd is more than double last year, City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said. This is exhilarating.

Discovered in a private collection in Portland, the 1893 recording of Mamas Black Baby Boy by the New York-based Unique Quartet was one of only two copies known to exist and sold for $1,100. The other resides in the Library of Congress. A second Unique Quartet song, Who Broke the Lock (on the Henhouse Door)? from 1896, sold at the same auction for $1,900. The same buyer purchased both recordings, which pre-date vinyl records. The recordings were so rare that auctioneers at Saco River Auction Co. had no idea how much they might fetch. An appraiser had suggested they were worth $25,000 or more each before the auction. The cylinder recordings were played on an early-style phonograph that had the appearance of a Victrola-style player. But the music was etched in wax on cylinders instead of in the grooves of vinyl records, which were popular throughout the 20th century. The wax was so fragile that auctioneers didnt dare try to play them.DeGeneres has Oscarcast goalLOS ANGELES Ellen DeGeneres has high aspirations for her second time around hosting the Oscars. It reached the world, the talk show host said of her well-received 2007 Oscarcast. And Im trying to get world peace. So, thats my goal. My hope is by hosting the Academy Awards, right afterward, we have world peace. DeGeneres may have been exaggerating but theres no overstating her enthusiasm for the upcoming March 2 gig. I know a lot of those people, she said of the Oscar audience. Theyre on my show a lot. I love the whole business. ... I get to play with all those people in the audience and make people happy, and, hopefully, relax them. DeGeneres made her comments Friday while attending a Toys for Tots event in Los Angeles.Willie Nelsons band bus wrecksSULPHUR SPRINGS, Texas Singer Willie Nelson has suspended performances until December after three of his band members were hurt when their bus plowed into a bridge pillar in East Texas during rainy conditions. The Texas Department of Public Safety said Nelson was not aboard in the weather-related accident around 3:30a.m. Saturday on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, 75 miles northeast of Dallas. Nelson spokeswoman Elaine Schock said Paul English broke his ankle, his brother Billy English suffered a bruise hip and Tom Harkin has a cracked or bruised rib. Nelson has postponed his four remaining November tour dates: Robinsonville and Jackson, Miss.; Fayetteville, Ark.; and Lafayette, La. Trooper Sylvia Jennings said seven people were on the westbound bus, including the driver who was dealing with wet roads and high winds. From wire reports Associated PressA tube containing a wax-covered cylinder etched with an 1893 recording of the song, Mommas Baby Black Boy, by the Unique Quartet, was auctioned Saturday in Biddeford, Maine.

Special to the ChronicleDuring the second week of November, members of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office SWAT team demonstrated their physical and mental toughness at the 31st annual SWAT Roundup International (SRI) competition. CCSO team members who have full-time law enforcement positions in addition to their SWAT team responsibilities placed fifth in the final standings, challenging 59 other competitive Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams in the competitions six major events. Teams from law enforcement agencies both national and inter national competed in events that are designed to simulate real-life scenarios and challenge both individuals and the team as a unit. The round-up is a major training exercise and heated competition rolled into one. Staged at the Orange County Sheriffs Office training facility in Orlando, the weeklong event showcased international special operations teams from Hungary, Germany, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Romania, UNIPOL and more. National competitors from the Los Angeles Police Department to Boston to New Mexico many with full-time SWAT members joined with agencies across the state of Florida to round out the competition. Out of six events, the CCSOs eight-member team took first place in the tower scramble, which tasks five team members with sniper and handgun shooting, plus tower climbing and rappelling. The team placed second in the Bearcat Challenge, an event that requires a group of four to shoot at various targets while in an armored vehicle, with the ultimate goal of rescuing someone in distress. The group placed fourth in the obstacle course, tackling 15 grueling obstacles that require teamwork and a no pain, no gain philosophy. This competition is a major benefit for us, said Sgt. John Novy. It identifies the strengths and weaknesses of your team, helps you learn how to build upon those strengths and weaknesses and gives you the opportunity to overcome the weaknesses in the exigency of stress. Novy placed second in the individual Super Sniper Competition, an event that requires a high level of skill and steady nerves. We are all very proud of our SWAT team, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said about the results. These men take the word dedicationto a whole new level. To compete internationally and end up so close to the top is just an incredible accomplishment. Members of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office SWAT team who competed in the SWAT Round-up International competition in Orlando this year include, from left: Deputy Bryan Vick, Deputy Thomas Dowling, Detective Craig Callahan, Sgt. John Novy, Sgt. Bobby Lambert, Detective Jeremy Laughlin, team leader Cpl.

Can you send a fax for me? asked Charlotte, a close neighbor, on the phone one morning. I was a little perplexed. It was like asking me if she could borrow our butter churn or a bucket of coal. Who sends faxes anymore? Didnt they go out with mullets and Beanie Babies? Why not just send a scan, or an email attachment or a screenshot of whatever she was being asked to fax? Who was she sending a fax to? Had she invented some kind of time machine? Was she sending a fax to her old self in 1989 telling her not to marry that bozo Tom? I had to check, but it turns out my printer is also a scanner and a fax machine, even though I had never used it for that. Sure, I said. Come on over, or do you need me to come over there and help crank your car? Charlotte now thinks I am out of my mind. She has no idea that people once started cars by handcranking them. The only crank she knows about is me. Old technology never seems to die willingly. I worked with a writer not so long ago who insisted on using a fountain pen. If he could have, Im sure he would have used a quill. This meant that every single word he wrote had to be typed into the computer by someone else. His typist went on to become quite successful in the publishing business; the scribe, not so much. It turns out that what you write is more important than what you write with. Go to almost any lawn sale and youll find cassette tapes and vinyl records and dictaphones and VHS players and giant, coffin-sized speakers that arent as good as the tiny ones in your cars door, yet some people still buy them. People who say old vinyl records sound better than digital either have a hearing problem or a memory problem. No, I take that back. Maybe they just have a drinking problem. But even if it were true, once youve run a needle over a vinyl record a few times, you can throw high fidelity out the window and watch it smash like dish at a Greek wedding. But if you like vinyl, theres a program that will add authentic-sounding clicks and pops to the songs on your MP3 player. About 10 years ago, well into the age of cellphones, I read about a local woman who was finally getting rid of her party line. (If youre a teenager who doesnt know what a party line is, let me just say, its probably not what youre thinking.) There hadnt been another party on her line for years; she had been the last one using it. She wanted to keep it because it was amazingly inexpensive but her phone carrier wouldnt hear of it. They dragged her kicking and screaming into, oh, the 1950s. And charged her more for it. Me, I like the new stuff. The printer I talked about earlier is wireless. That doesnt mean it has no wires, it just means it has one less wire the one to the computer. It still has a power cord and it has to be plugged into a phone jack to use the fax. Maybe wireless is a little optimistic. The term should really be wirefewer, as in her party line was wireless compared to my wirefewer printer. I like that my smartphone can take pictures and let me read my email. Yet I know that when I reread this story in two or three years, Ill say, Wireless? Really? That went out ages ago. A smartphone? When is the dude going to catch up and get a phone chip implanted in his forehead like everyone else? He probably has one of those, what do you call them? Fax machines.Contact Jim Mullen at JimMullenBooks.com.COMMUNITYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 A7 See your independent Trane dealer for complete program eligibility, dates, details and restrictions.

a better deal though a private company, such as Waste Management of Central Florida. He also wondered why the agreement didnt include Marion County, since Hernando likely faces the same flooding issues as Citrus County. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said he eliminated Marion County from consideration because that county has a 20-year, $20 million arrangement to haul its waste to the Heart of Florida landfill in Lake Panasoffkee, which Adams co-owns. Parsons said Adams would have had a potential ethical conflict with a Marion County arrangement because his landfill could benefit financially. In an abundance of caution, I told Marion we were not interested, Thorpe said. Parsons said state law forbids an elected official from contracting with his own business, even if the official abstains from voting. The exception, she said, is contracts that result from sealed bids, so long as the official publicly discloses the conflict. Adams said Friday that he wants the ethics opinion for another reason. He said Hernando County is expected to seek proposals for trash disposal and Heart of Florida would submit a bid. The fact that Citrus County now has an interlocal agreement with Hernando for emergency situations, he said he wants to avoid a conflict situation. On this issue we want to be clear because Im not sure and thats why we want an opinion, Adams said. I knew there would be a possible question about this thing in Hernando County and I dont want to get in trouble. Along with approving the interlocal agreement with Hernando County, commissioners also asked Thorpe to seek bids from private landfills for use on an emergency basis. Thorpe said Friday he will hold off doing that until after Adams and Parsons hear back from the ethics commission. I wont put him in peril, Thorpe said. Adams said he wont risk his commissioner role. Im going to be a commissioner as long as the people put me in and I dont plan on doing anything wrong, he said. And if do something wrong, itll be by mistake.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Chris Lloyd spoke against the ordinance because he said it deprived the public from advising commissioners. After Lloyd spoke, another speaker, Capt. Herbert Adams of Dunnellon, commented about a recent meeting of the Citrus County Port Authority. Although county commissioners also are the port authority board members, they were not sitting as the port authority, either. Adams said the agenda of the port authority did not offer a time for public comment and the port authority has yet to schedule another meeting. Therefore, he was using the occasion of the county commissions public comment session to air his questions. Nothing wrong here: The public may speak to any subject, Lloyd agreed. However, as Adams raised points and no one on the board could respond because the chairman had yet to be elected, Meek asked County Administrator Brad Thorpe, who also is the port director, to answer Adams queries. But this was a county commission meeting and Mr. Thorpe is only allowed to wear one hat at a time, Lloyd asserted in a letter to the Chronicle. Lloyd went forward and prefaced his comments with the phrase: I wish to raise a point of order. According to Lloyd, This is the recognized and proper form in which to call the attention of the chair to an alleged violation or breach of the assemblys or meetings rules of order. Lloyds point of order was that the former county attorney, Richard Wesch, had established that county commissioners could not discuss port business unless they adjourned their regular meeting, opened a port meeting, conducted that business, adjourned the port meeting and reopened the regular meeting. This may sound clumsy, but it is the mechanism which serves to keep these two entities separate, Lloyd wrote. Rather than ruling on the point of order which takes precedence once alleged and is ruled upon right away, Ms. Parsons tried to silence me with the words: Thank you, Mr. Lloyd, you can sit down, referring to acting county attorney Kerry Parsons. Lloyd had used his one opportunity to speak. But this, he told theChronicle, was not a comment or a question it was a point of order. Lloyd said he did not know why his objection was dismissed. He has taken part in county commission meetings for 15 years as a voter and taxpayer and is a member of the Citrus County Council, a residents advocacy group. I do not take kindly to being told that I can sit down as if I were a naughty 10-year-old at Homosassa Elementary, Lloyd wrote. He said the county was breaking its own rules and Parsons should have advised Thorpe not to speak about port authority matters until the next port authority meeting. When asked to comment, Parsons said, Only a commissioner can make a point of order incidental motion. According to the Citrus County Code of Ordinances Chapter 2, Article 11, Division 2, Section 2-47 (3), If a commissioner believes that a violation of the rules of parliamentary procedure has occurred, he can raise a point of order. A second is not required. The chair can make a ruling on the question or can allow the board to debate and then rule on the question by majority vote. A point of order can only be interrupted by a privileged motion or a motion to lay on the table. As to commissioners discussing port issues during commission meetings, Parsons said the board could raise such issues but not make any decisions about them until they were seated as the port authority in a legally advertised port authority meeting.

Those who did not prequalify were directed to a Salvation Army tent. If they didnt have the proper paperwork, residents were told to come by The Salvation Army office on Monday where turkeys would be available. Volunteers manning shopping carts met recipients and led them through the different food stations to pick up a turkey, fresh vegetables from The Path and church organizations. Co-organizer Doug Lobel even stood by to make sure motorists on hand for the food giveaway didnt park at Wendys thus saving them the possibility of a parking ticket. Its a well-oiled machine, Lobel said. The alliance includes 250 volunteers, plus 30 agencies and businesses, including Walmart, Publix and Lowes. On Wednesday night, Lobel said 82 children of various ages gathered at the Citrus County Auditorium to stuff 1,000 food boxes. It teaches young people to get involved, Lobel said. Organizational meetings take place weekly for months in Inverness Mayor Bob Plaisteds living room. Its one of the greatest things in Citrus County, Plaisted said. It helps people who wouldnt normally go to a food bank. Volunteers include elected officials and business leaders. Weve got county commissioners, two judges, lawyers, doctors you name it, Alexander said. Commissioner Scott Adams and his wife Pam were, like many others, on shopping cart duty. This is what a communitys all about helping each other, Adams said. Its what we should do. A major provider is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which contributed $23,000 worth of boxed rice and beans. Bishop Robert Hoki of the Lecanto Mormon church said the church is pleased to help. If we can make Thanksgiving better than it would have been thats what its all about, he said. Judge Thomas has volunteered with the Thanksgiving Alliance from the start. All of us have so many blessings, she said. This is a piece of cake.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

march of partisanship, which severely has damaged the ability of Congress to conduct even routine business. Senate Democrats opened themselves up to future retaliation by furious Republicans in order to let Obama, a Democrat, do things many of his predecessors typically did with minimal fuss: fill executive jobs and vacant judgeships. Theyre at peace with the idea that this president, along with future presidents, deserve to, with rare exceptions, put their own people in place, said Jim Manley, who spoke Friday with his former boss, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. The current situation was untenable, Manley said, and something had to change. The final straw for Democrats came when Republicans used the filibuster, which allows 41 of the 100 senators to block almost any action, to bar Obama nominees from three vacancies on a powerful federal appeals court. Republican senators didnt pretend the nominees were unqualified, which struck some Democrats as a virtual taunt. Democrats dismissed the GOP claim that the vacancies neednt be filled at all. In Democrats eyes, the Senates 45 Republicans had turned democracy on its head. The party that lost the past two presidential elections and failed to win control of the Senate nonetheless was dictating who the president could or could not appoint to important government posts. Todays pattern of obstruction, it just isnt normal, Obama said, praising the Senates 52-48 vote to change the rules. Republicans used the filibuster as a reckless and relentless tool, he said, simply because they opposed the policies that the American people voted for in the last election. Neither party has been blameless for these tactics, the president noted. Indeed, Democrats blocked or delayed so many of President George W. Bushs appointees that Republicans, who ran the Senate in 2005, threatened to curtail filibuster powers in much the same way Democrats have done now. A bipartisan truce halted that effort, but it didnt last long. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky now says Obama and other Democrats will regret destroying a timehonored protection of minority rights in Congress, perhaps a lot sooner than you think. The solution to this problem is an election, said a visibly angry McConnell. We look forward to having a great election in 2014. Yet in a sharply divided society, U.S. elections often settle less than the winners had hoped. Bush won re-election in 2004, but got nowhere trying to partly privatize Social Security. Obama was given a second term last year after defending his landmark health care law, only to find congressional Republicans as determined as ever to undo it. House Republicans, who control their chamber by 32 seats, voted 40 times to rescind or restrict that law. In the Senate, where Republicans have a 10seat disadvantage, they increasingly turned to the filibuster to block the presidents agenda as much as possible. Both parties had a different view when the power structure was reversed. Republicans in 2005 threatened to curtail filibuster powers when they controlled the Senate. A bipartisan truce halted the effort. It didnt last long. Obama told reporters that in the 60 years before he took office, only 20 presidential nominees to executive positions had to overcome filibusters. In just under five years since I took office, nearly 30 nominees have been treated this way. Now people ask whether the Senate rules change will make things better for the government and nation, or worse. Reid said it will help the country and the Senate. Others disagree, saying the quarrels will grow even hotter. Thursdays actions did not prevent the minority party from using filibusters to block legislation or Supreme Court nominees. Sooner or later, some activists in both parties say, those barriers will fall, too. It is just a matter of time perhaps as soon as the next Congress before one party or the other eliminates the filibuster for legislation, not just judicial appointments, said John Ullyot, a GOP Senate aide during the 2005 filibuster debates. The genie is out of the bottle, he said, and theres no putting it back in. Some Republicans say they look forward to the day when a GOP president can use a simple Senate majority to revoke Obamas 2010 health care overhaul. In the meantime, advocates of bipartisanship fear that the rules change will snuff out any remaining hope of progress in Congress. Former Sen. George Voinovich, an Ohio Republican who often worked with Democrats, said Republicans justified anger makes it highly unlikely House-Senate budget negotiators will reach even a modest accord to curb deficits and redirect spending cuts to make them less damaging. Were not going to get anything, said Voinovich, who has been urging the two-party negotiators to make courageous decisions. The public is unbelievably upset at the federal government, he said, and fallout from the filibuster rules change will make matters worse. Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy, now the Senates longest-serving member, said he resisted changing filibuster rules for years, even when fellow Democrats complained. Yet over the past five years, Leahy said in a floor speech Thursday, Senate Republicans resorted to obstructionism that crossed the line from use of the Senate rules to abuse of the rules. The filibuster rules change will bring the Senate somewhat closer to the House, where the minority party has few powers. In many ways, however, the Senate and the nation have been growing more partisan for years as the realignment of American politics drives moderates from both parties. The expanding Senate obstructionism, Obama said is not what our founders envisioned. A deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to refight the results of an election, is not normal, the president said. For future generations sake, he said, we cant let it become normal. Given the level of anger over the rules change, it may be too late.Charles Babington covers Congress and politics for The Associated Press.A10SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION Mon-Fri 8:30-6 Sat 8:30-1 471 N.

MATTSOERGEL The Florida Times-UnionJACKSONVILLE, Fla. Its a nothing-special grass parking lot in LaVilla, on the edge of downtown. But the members of a fledgling group called the Cowford Archaeological Research Society see it as something quite grand. To them, this nondescript patch of land is beginning to look like the site of a lost Union fort, built in 1864 just outside the city walls of old Jacksonville. Theyve dug, and theyve found intriguing items from that era, including what they say is a nicely preserved shell casing for a Spencer rifle, which was used by Union troops. Exciting stuff. But for members of the mostly amateur archaeological group, theres a mystery in the citys vast northern marshes that they think could be far older and even more important. But its going to take bit of a hike to get there. This is some serious jungle: Dean M. Sais and George Burns, founders of the Cowford group, handed out plastic leg coverings, to guard against snakebites. There was extra water. Sais went ahead, urging his four companions to stay 10 meters apart: If you hear me yell Ow! run like hell. That means yellow jackets. Burns whacked away with a machete. The 20-minute walk passed uneventfully, though, apart from some vines that trip and branches that must be climbed over or ducked under. And soon, they were standing by their discovery. Right on the edge of one of the countless marshes in that area, it has four earth-and-oyster-shell walls, roughly rectangular, perhaps 6 feet high at its highest. In one corner, theres an opening. Could it have been a door, or is it just natural erosion? Inside the walls, the ground is low and muddy, and trees are growing up from the mud. In all, its about 115 by 80 feet. Sais got a tip from a hiker who told him about the strange find in the woods. After struggling through mud and thick vegetation, he saw it for himself. The find intrigues Sais and Burns, though they dont know what it is other than to say that its definitely manmade. They cant know until more research is done, and they say they wont dig without landowner permission. And they dont want to publicize exact locations, to prevent unscrupulous diggers from finding out. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society, its founders say, wants to do it right. Were not just a bunch of fly-by-night amateurs, Burns said. Burns is a registered professional archaeologist, with a masters degree in the field from Colorado State. Sais has worked for decades as a contract archaeologist, and he has a business selling tools of the trade. The site in the marshes could very well be something quite mundane. But they wonder: Could it be the earthworks of a fort ordered built by James Edward Oglethorpe, the British founder of Georgia, in preparation for his failed 1740 siege of the Spanish in St. Augustine? Theyve been looking for it a few hundred years, Sais said. We think weve found it. He can picture it: They could get 200 men in here, shoulder-to-shoulder, with flintlock rifles, if the Spanish attacked them. Archaeologists dream of such discoveries. And as Sais, a garrulous 60-year-old, likes to say: Everywhere you walk in Jacksonville, historys under your feet.

Surfer killed by shark off Australias west coastPERTH, Australia A 35-year-old surfer was fatally mauled by a shark Saturday off a notorious stretch of Australias west coast, police said. The shark bounced off the board of one surfer before attacking the other male off a beach near Gracetown, said Western Australia state police Sgt. Norm Giocas. The victim, whose identity was known but not immediately released, died instantly from massive injuries, Giocas said, adding that beachgoers brought his body ashore. Surfer Ryan Scanlon saw the body and told the PerthNow news website that the victim had lost his left arm and flesh from his right leg. The state Fisheries Department quickly closed beaches in the area. Marine officers were being sent with shark-catching gear to deploy in the surrounding waters as soon as possible, the department said. No details about the shark were immediately released.Egypt expels Turkish ambassadorCAIRO Egypt downgraded diplomatic relations Saturday with Turkey and expelled its ambassador from Cairo, a sharp escalation in tensions between the two countries. In a quick reaction, Turkey reciprocated by declaring the Egyptian ambassador persona non grata and downgrading relations with Egypt to the same level. Saturdays decisions, which fall short of closing diplomatic missions in the two countries, are a dramatic reversal of the warming relations between the two countries over the past year. Since Egypts 2011 uprising against autocrat Hosni Mubarak, Turkey sought to strengthen ties with the countrys new political order. Trade between the two countries increased by about 27 percent in the to $3.8 billion in the first nine months of 2012. Turkey also increased its investment in Egypt and currently has some 26 development projects in Egypt.Sunnis close Iraqi capital mosques in protestBAGHDAD Iraqi Sunni religious leaders said Saturday they closed the sects mosques in Baghdad indefinitely to protest attacks targeting clerics and worshippers, highlighting the countrys deepening sectarian rift. Sunnis previously have closed mosques as a protest tactic in the province of Basra and in the northeastern province of Diyala. The mosques later reopened after local authorities and tribal leaders promised to offer protection. Violence continued Saturday across Iraq. In the northern town of Tuz Khormato, a suicide bomber set off his explosive belt near a line of people waiting to buy bread from a baker, Mayor Shalal Abdool said. A second bomber drove an explosiveladen car into the crowd that gathered after the first explosion, Abdool said. The two attacks killed 10 people and wounded 35, he said. Tuz Khormato is about 130 miles north of Baghdad.Activists: Government airstrikes kill 44 in SyriaBEIRUT A string of government airstrikes on rebel-held areas in northernSyria killed at least 44 people Saturday, activists said, as al-Qaidalinked rebels captured one of the countrys major oil fields in the east. An attack on the rebel-held town of al-Bab near the northern city of Aleppo was the deadliest of the three raids, killing 22 people, said Rami Abdurrahman, the director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Fighter jets also bombed two rebel-held districts of Aleppo, Syrias largest city. Government warplanes missed their target in the Halwaniyeh neighborhood and sent bombs into a crowded vegetable market, killing 15 people, Abdurrahman said. Seven people died in a third airstrike in the Karam el-Beik district, according to the activist group. The Observatory has been documenting the conflict by relying on a network of activists on the ground.Zimbabwe: Foreigners must close shops by Jan. 1HARARE, Zimbabwe Zimbabwean authorities say they have given foreign shop-owners mostly Chinese and Nigerian nationals an ultimatum to shut down their businesses by Jan. 1. A top official of the black empowerment ministry said only Zimbabweans had the right to run shops that have sprung up across the country and are termed foreign businesses targeted under the nations black empowerment laws, the state-controlled Herald newspaper reported Friday. Those laws, passed in 2007, demand foreign businesses to cede 51 percent control to local blacks. The shop owners have been criticized for taking retail trade opportunities from Zimbabweans by selling cheap imports. Poor townships and city flea markets have in recent years been inundated by shops run by foreigners. According to state media, shop owners who fail to comply will be arrested.From wire reportsWORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 A13 6659 W.

Diplomats refused to spell out details of the talks, held in a five-star Geneva hotel. But comments from both sides suggested negotiations focused on detailed wording that could be key in shaping an agreement that both sides could live with. Even though diplomats were said to be close to a deal after four days of talks, they also warned against expectations that a final agreement was imminent due to the complexity of the issues and the stakes for all sides. The goal is to hammer out an agreement to freeze Irans nuclear program for six months, while offering the Iranians limited relief from crippling economic sanctions. If the interim deal holds, the parties would negotiate finalstage agreements to ensure Iran does not build nuclear weapons. Only then would the most crippling sanctions on Iranianoil sales and financial transactions be rolled back. Irans Fars news agency quotedIranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as saying the dispute is over the wording but he was unsure when a deal might be final. Since it was revealed in 2003, Irans enrichment program has grown from a few dozen enriching centrifuges to more than 18,000 installed and over 10,000 operating. The machines have produced tons of low-enriched uranium, which can be turned into weapons grade material. Iran also has stockpiled almost 440 pounds of higher-enriched uranium in a form that can be converted more quickly to fissile warhead material than the low-enriched uranium. Its supply is nearly enough for one bomb. Based on comments from diplomats, the talks on Saturday appear to have included ways Iran could retain some level of enrichment, although at a level far below whats need for weapons. While saying they are ready for compromise, the Iranians are mindful of criticism from hard-liners at home who oppose dealings with the United States. With the talks already running two days over schedule, it was unclear whether the negotiations would continue Sunday. The U.S. administration has not confirmed details of what concessions on economic sanctions it might offer. But a member of Congress and legislative aides have said the White House was considering releasing about $6 billion to $10 billion in Iranian funds frozen in foreign banks. Iran would also be allowed to sell petrochemicals and be supplied with auto parts. The aides and the member of Congress demanded anonymity because they werent authorized to divulge the estimate publicly. An anonymous senior U.S. official toldreporters last week Iran is losing $5 billion a month in lost oil sales alone and $120 billion in total from all sanctions since their imposition.

Whitehill had a goal to raise 20,000 meals for the West Texas Food Bank to help feed hungry people after seeing people living in a tent city. He started his own food drive in his neighborhood in Midland and expanded by using social media to help spread the word. He raised more than $5,000 and brought in 1,410 pounds of food to achieve his goal. Zumba instructor in prostitution bust leaves jailALFRED, Maine The Zumba instructor who ran a prostitution business in which she videotaped unsuspecting clients so her business partner could watch from his office 100 miles away has been released from jail, bringing to a close a scandal featuring sex videos, adultery and a client list with more than 100 names. Alexis Wright left the York County Jail at about 7:45 a.m. Saturday after serving nearly six months of a 10-month sentence for engaging in and promoting prostitution, as well as several welfareand tax-related charges. Wrights prostitution business came as a surprise to her fitness clients but not to police officers whod become suspicious after fielding complaints about groaning, loud music and men coming and going from an office Wright rented across the street from her studio.Judge strikes down clergy tax-free housing moneyMADISON, Wis. A federal judge has struck down a law that gives clergy tax-free housing allowances in a decision that could have farreaching financial ramifications for pastors across the U.S. In her decision Friday, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb in Wisconsin wrote that the exemption provides a benefit to religious persons and no one else, even though doing so is not necessary to alleviate a special burden on religious exercise, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation filed the lawsuit against U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and acting IRS commissioner Daniel Werfel. Under the law, passed by Congress in 1954, ministers dont pay income taxes on compensation that is designated part of a housing allowance. The Freedom From Religion Foundation says that a clergy member can use the untaxed income to purchase a home, and then, in a practice known as double dipping, deduct interest paid on the mortgage and property taxes. Its a really big deal, said Annie Laurie Gaylor, copresident of the foundation. A church currently could pay a minister $50,000 but designate $20,000 of it a housing allowance so that only $30,000 would be taxed as salary.

World BRIEFS Associated PressPolice officers stand outside properties Saturday as police conduct house-to-house enquires in the area where three women were freed in south London. Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A powerful storm system that has caused hundreds of accidents across the Western U.S. has marched eastward with predictions of widespread snow, freezing temperatures and gusty winds. The fierce weather has caused at least eight deaths and prompted advisories Saturday afternoon in New Mexico and Texas. As thick, gray clouds covered the Southwest, forecasters said the storm would sweep across the South and toward the Atlantic coast next week, causing problems for holiday travelers. Joe Harris, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the Nordic outbreak will produce a mixed bag of wily weather that will end up impacting much of the nation. In New Mexico, authorities and residents braced for the second hit of a onetwo punch that had already blanketed parts of the state with snow and freezing rain and caused a rollover accident that killed a 4-year-old girl in the eastern part of the state. Three other stormrelated deaths were reported Saturday in a crash in the Texas Panhandle involving nearly a dozen vehicles. In California, where the storm system hit first, prompting flooding and water rescues in recent days, three deaths have been linked to the storms since Thursday, as authorities found one body near downed power lines, one man crashed his vehicle into a tree and a woman was killed when a tree fell on a parked car. In Arizona, firefighters recovered the body of a man who was swept away by high waters Friday in the Santa Cruz River in the southern part of the state. The storm already has affected much of the Western U.S., causing hundreds of rollover accidents and prompting officials to cancel events and close roads. In Nevada, snow in high elevations in the rural, eastern part of the state stranded dozens of cars. No fatalities were reported and authorities got the road open again by Saturday. Forecasters said parts of both California and Arizona could expect severe weather with winter storm warnings through Saturday. Associated PressA winter storm moves into Flagstaff, Ariz., on Thursday. A strong storm system pumped Pacific moisture into Arizona on Thursday into Friday, giving the state a blast of wet weather. Storms blast Western US; East up next Associated PressNEW YORK The Federal Communications Commission might be ready to permit cellphone calls in flight. But what about the airlines? Old concerns about electronics being a danger to airplane navigation have been debunked. And airlines could make some extra cash charging passengers to call a loved one from 35,000 feet. But that extra money might not be worth the backlash from fliers who view overly chatty neighbors as another inconvenience to go along with smaller seats and stuffed overhead bins. Common courtesy goes out the window when people step in that metal tube, said James Patrick II, a frequent flier from Newnan, Ga. You think the debates and fistfights over reclining the seat back was bad. Wait until guys start slugging it out over someone talking too loud on the phone. Thats one of the reasons the countrys largest flight attendant union has come out against allowing calls in flight. The FCC is proposing to lift an existing ban, and airlines would have to decide whether to let passengers make calls. The ban would remain in effect during takeoff and landing. Delta Air Lines is the only major airline to explicitly state that voice calls wont be allowed on its flights, even if the FCC allows it. Delta says years of feedback from customers show the overwhelming sentiment is to continue prohibiting calls. Other airlines arent as firm. United Airlines says that if the FCC changes its rules, we will study it along with feedback from customers and crews. American Airlines has offered a similar approach. So has JetBlue, which says it would welcome the opportunity to explore voice calls but would prioritize making the cabin comfortable and welcoming for all. Confused yet? Well, to complicate matters even more, the airlines actually dont need to wait for the FCC. Yes, the government would need to remove the restriction for you to make normal calls in flight. But there are already plenty of ways to make calls legally over airline Wi-Fi networks, while keeping your phone in airplane mode. The airlines just choose to block such calls. If govt OKs in-flight calls, will airlines? Associated PressLONDON New details emerged Saturday in the bizarre case of three suspected female slaves allegedly held for 30 years, with police indicating the unusual household arrangement started as a collective of people with shared political beliefs. While much of the case is still a mystery, British police said the two suspects a man and a woman from India and Tanzania bonded with two of the reported victims because of commonly held political views and lived with them in a communal situation, apparently in the Brixton area of south London. We believe that two of the victims met the male suspect in London through a shared political ideology, and that they lived together at an address that you could effectively call a collective, said Metropolitan Police Commander Steve Rodhouse. The collective eventually broke up, but the two women stayed on, for reasons the police say they do not yet fully comprehend. The third woman is a 30-year-old, who apparently spent most of her life under the control of the two suspects with only closely managed contact with the outside world. Somehow that collective came to an end and the women ended up continuing to live with the suspects, Rodhouse said. How this resulted in the women living in this way for over 30 years is what (we) are seeking to establish, but we believe emotional and physical abuse has been a feature of all the victims lives. The disclosure Thursday that a 69-year-old Malaysian, a 57-yearold Irish woman and a 30-yearold Briton were freed after three decades prompted questions about how such a tragedy escaped notice for so long. Many puzzles still remained Saturday. Rodhouse refused to provide any details about the communal living situation or the political beliefs that united the group. It is not clear if they were bound by common religious views, a commitment to political or social change, or other factors. Police have said the three victims were subjected to repeated beatings and kept in place by invisible handcuffs rather than physical constraints. They have indicated sexual abuse was not involved. New information was also revealed Saturday about the two suspects, who have been freed on bail until a court hearing in January. Rodhouse said they came to Britain in the 1960s. The suspects, who have not been named or charged with any crime, are a male and female couple, both aged 67. Rodhouse said a birth certificate for the 30-year-old alleged victim has been located but that no other official documentation about her life has been found. Authorities have not indicated if she was allowed to attend school or whether she is related to either the suspects or the other two victims. Police have said the women may have been brainwashed. Abused women part of ideological collective Etna erupts; towns showered with ashMILAN Mount Etna, Europes most active volcano, has erupted again, showering volcanic ash on towns dotting the mountains slopes and nearby Taormina. The eruption Saturday did not force any evacuations, but a highway was closed for half an hour as a precaution. Authorities also briefly closed two of four air corridors serving the nearby Catania airport but air traffic was not interrupted. Etna erupts occasionally. Its last major eruption occurred in 1992.Third section of supermarket roof collapses in LatviaRIGA, Latvia A massive third section of the roof at a Latvian supermarket where at least 54 people were killed fell Saturday as emergency workers searched nearby rubble for more victims. Though no one was injured, officials suspended the effort as they considered the dangers of continuing the search in the unstable building. Latvias president described the disaster at the Maxima supermarket in Riga, the worst in the Baltic country since it regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, as murder and called for a speedy investigation into its cause. Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman Viktorija Sembele said the latest collapse occurred in an area where firefighters were not working, but the service immediately recalled its people from inside to ensure there were no casualties. The service tweeted minutes later that no one was injured. President Andris Berzins spoke bluntly about the disaster in an interview with Latvian television, though he did not single anyone out as culpable. This is a case where we need to say clearly it is the murder of an enormous number of defenseless people, and thats how we should proceed, Berzins said.

Tours launch on the Withlacoochee River at the bridge on U.S. 41, in south Dunnellon, at the site of the Blue Gator Pub. Your tour, on a 40-foot pontoon boat, will progress up the Withlacoochee River to its confluence with the Rainbow River, the second river we will enjoy today. The Rainbow River is one of Floridas designated Outstanding Florida Waters, and is created by a first magnitude spring that is the third largest in Florida, bellowing 400,000,000 gallons of fresh 72-degree water every day. It flows from underground limestone aquifer that runs under the state of Florida and is a short river measuring only 5.7 miles in length before joining the Withlacoochee River, near Dunnellon. During this float on the Rainbow River you will observe lots of Florida wildlife, such as turtles, alligators, otters, a variety of wild birds, including ibis, herons, anhingas, cormorants, and more. Of course our guide, boat Flora, fauna, and watery things provide all the entertainment one needs on the beautiful Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers except for the singing. Learn about streaked neck turtles and why they sit on logs over the river. What are the distinguishing features of anhingas and cormorants? The beak tells all. Why is there a dramatic and sharp distinction in the change of color between the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers why you can see the line? Now, I know the answers.

A16SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Dear Annie: We host Thanksgiving dinner for my husbands family every year, and I enjoy doing so, but I have a problem with my stepsons wife. They have not lived together for almost three years, but they still travel together regularly, including visits home. I have continued to include her, as well as her three children (all from previous relationships) in every invitation for the holidays. She never responds. Most of the time, they dont come. But occasionally, they show up two or three hours past dinnertime. I can make adjustments for a couple of unexpected guests, but not for five people who are that late. I would like to tell her that if I dont hear from her, she should not come at all, but my husband says that would hurt his sons feelings. What do you think? LastMinute Hostess Dear Last Minute: If all five of them are coming late, it includes your stepson, no? So why is this the wifes fault? Is your stepson incapable of using a telephone? Heres our suggestion: If you dont hear from anyone in this family before the holiday, call your stepson and ask whether they are planning to come. (If you prefer, call his wife directly.) Start your dinner on time, and if they show up two hours late, say, How nice to see you! I had no idea you were coming. There are extra plates in the kitchen. Help yourself.

In the fall of 2008 my wife, Leslye and I were discussing the evils of getting old. After traveling most of our lifetimes we wondered how much longer we would be able to continue. We both agreed that we would probably have to curtail our traveling in the future and we decided to search for what may be our final travel challenge. A few days later, we received an invitation from Princess Cruise Lines inviting us to join them on a trip around the world departing from Fort Lauderdale on Jan. 20, 2009 for 107 days. As travel challenges go, this would be a doozie. How does one pack for a 107-day trip? After visions of trading a breakfast from the ship for a bar of soap in the jungles of Vietnam, we decided to just take everything with us. So began an almost daily trip to Walmart to stock up on every necessity. Toiletries, medicines, snacks and wine were the order of the day. Find a coupon, run to Walmart. What should I wear? This became a daily discussion as we tried to find a happy medium between what to wear and available space. Fortunately, the cruise followed a warm weather route with the exception of a week in Korea and Japan. So we packed all Florida weather clothing and added an extra sweatshirt. With the logistics behind us, we moved to shots and visas. Shots turned out to be a nonevent as none were required for our travel. Visas however were completely different story as we required many of them. Visas were available on the ship as we arrived at specific ports, from the cruise line in advance, or purchased from an independent visa company. We chose to purchase the more expensive visas from a specialized travel agent. We spent about $500 each on visas, but were then ready to roll. On the morning of Jan. 20, we loaded our four suitcases, a portable wardrobe and our 13 boxes of necessities into the car and were driven by our good friends, Joe and Barbara, to the pier in Fort Lauderdale. They waved goodbye and wondered if they would ever see us again. Leslye and I have traveled extensively and we have been on many cruises, but never for so long, and we had no idea what to expect. We left our belongings at the pier, boarded the ship, and were shown to our cabin on the Royal Princes. Leslyes first words upon entering the cabin were Where are we going to put all of our stuff? Priorities being what they were, we went to lunch. Some information about the Royal Princes to help you better understand our experiences on board: Firstly She has been retired, sold and scrapped since our trip and been replaced by a mega sized Royal Princess, christened by Duchess Kate in May 2013. The Royal Princes is a small ship that is to say about 700 passengers as opposed to the 5000-plus on some of the newest ships. As you will see over the rest of these installments, this makes a big difference in the onboard experience. The world cruise is divided into four segments, roughly a quarter of the trip per segment. Passengers have the option of signing up for any segment or the full-world cruise. Of the 700 original passengers leaving Fort Lauderdale, 410 of them had signed on for the full cruise. The atmosphere on a small ship is more intimate and conducive to creating long-term friendships. Also, most of the staff remains on board for the duration of the cruise. After a while, we were all on a first name basis. Cabin choices on the Royal Princess run the gamut from sleeping in a closet in the engine room to multiroom suites. We chose a balcony cabin reasoning that with 100 warm days this would pay off. Boy did it ever. On returning from lunch, we found our belongings piled up in our cabin. I have been married to Leslye for 20-plus years, and I know when I will be in the way. I went for coffee. When I returned, everything was put away. With the exception of a cardboard box in the corner, the cabin looked like we lived here. We freshened up and then headed to deck 9 for the Sail Away party. At 5:30 p.m., the Royal Princes departed Fort Lauderdale, en route to our first stop at Georgetown, Grand Cayman. We spent day two at sea, traveling about 250 miles in rain, wind and waves. We spent the day eating, exploring the ship, eating and then getting ready for our first dinner on board. We were assigned to table 49 at the 8 p.m. seating. We meet our six fellow passengers, all of whom are taking the full cruise, and enjoying the first of many dinners. More on this later.Peter Graulich loves to travel. He first left the country in 1961 for six weeks travelling Europe and the United Kingdom with family. Since then he has visited 97 countries, every state in the United States and every national park. He has spent about 300 days on Princess Cruise Line ships. captain and entertainer, Jon Semmes, presents a constant, and often humorous, narration of interesting facts about these wild creatures and their habitat. Beautiful cypress trees, appearing at times to be dead, draped with fairylike wisps of moss, are a captivating feature on the river. The moss is not a parasite, as some first believe, but is a bromeliad in the air-plant family. The scene on the eastern side of the river, but hidden from view by a wooded area, is K.P. Hole State Park, a popular attraction, while on the western bank a few homes pop into view. You will enjoy a unending show of natures most beautiful creations. As we drift back into the Withlacoochee River, we float past swimmers, tubers, and an occasional fisherman angling for their catch of the day perhaps for lunch, as it is nearing noontime. There are 16 species of fish in the waters of this area. The Withlacoochee River, by comparison to the Rainbow River, is a long river, measuring 105 miles. Its origin is in the Green Swamp, in the vicinity of Lakeland, and is the second largest swamp in Florida after the Everglades. The river will meander through this great swamp, spawning 5 other rivers on its journey towards merging with the Rainbow River at Dunnellon. The river continues its flow through Lake Rousseau towards Yankeetown and into the Gulf of Mexico. In contrast to the Rainbow Rivers clarity, the Withlacoochee is tannic in color about the color of water after soaking a tea bag. This color differential is the result of cedar trees on the banks throughout the rivers journey, and is one of those Ah! moments when first viewed. Its common to hear that people save the best until last isnt that when we get dessert, after a meal? The same is true of this enchanting boat ride. Captain, Jon, a transplant from Alabama in 1977, saw the Rainbow River and never looked back. Jon carefully jockeys our boat into an alcove of trees and shoreline plants in Turtle Cove that appear to be thriving as a result of his regular visits bringing music and song to his solitary hideout. He breaks out his guitar and enthralls his audience of pleasure seekers from five different states with appropriate songs for the moment. Jons music, from the heart and definitely Florida folk, began when he was 13 years old and his mother, the wellknown Mem Semmes, of Florida folk music fame, thrust a guitar into Jons hands and said, You will learn to play this. The rest is history. Jon led off with Aint Florida Neat by Mindy Simmons, followed by a song written by Jons mother, Florida Man. Our drift back to the boat launch came much too soon. An eager bunch, Jons next audience, lined the dock anxiously awaiting our arrival.

We all know they are there, but really dont notice them until one goes flat or the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light comes on to tell you there is low air pressure in one of the tires. Sometimes, the TPMS light can drive you crazy when it malfunctions and stays on for no reason. However, your tires are one of the most important safety items on your car. Did you ever wonder how tires developed over the years into what they are today? The earliest tires were bands of iron (later steel) placed on wooden wheels, used on cars and wagons. The metal would be heated in a forge fire, placed over the wheel and quenched, causing it to contract and fit tightly on the wheel. A skilled worker, known as a wheelwright, performed this work. The outer metal ring served to tie the wheel segments together for use, providing a wear-resistant surface on the perimeter of the wheel. The word tire thus emerged as a variant spelling to refer to the metal bands used to tie wheels. The first practical pneumatic tire was made by John Dunlop in Ireland in 1887 for his sons bicycle, in an effort to prevent the headaches his son had while riding on rough roads. Dunlop is credited with realizing rubber could withstand the wear and tear of being a tire while retaining its resilience. The development of this technology progressed over the years based on many engineering advances. In terms of materials, the vulcanization of natural rubber (making it stronger and more elastic) is credited to Charles Goodyear and an associate. Synthetic rubbers were invented in the laboratories of Bayer in the 1920s. The materials of modern pneumatic tires are synthetic rubber, natural rubber, fabric and wire along with carbon black and other chemical compounds. They consist of a tread and a body. The tread provides traction while the body provides containment for the compressed air. Early rubber tires were solid (not pneumatic). Today, the majority of tires are pneumatic inflatable structures comprising a doughnutshaped body of cords and wires encased in rubber and generally filled with air to form an inflatable cushion. It seems the new trend is run-flat tires that have a much stiffer sidewall and can be driven on for up to 100 miles at lower speeds to get to a repair shop. If your car has the run-flats on it, as do most of the newer Corvettes, there is no spare tire provided by the manufacturer. One of the main drawbacks of the run-flats is a stiffer ride than regular tires. There are over one billion tires produced annually in about 450 tire factories around the world. Its an important safety precaution to check your tires periodically for wear and keep them inflated to the recommended air pressure. CAR JOKE: While working on a car, a mechanic accidentally swallowed some brake fluid. To his surprise, he quite liked the taste. The next day he decided to have another swig and enjoyed it so much that he told his friend. His friend said: You shouldnt be drinking brake fluid. Its bad for you. But the mechanic was becoming hooked and each day increasing his intake of brake fluid. His friend became seriously concerned. Youve got to give it up, he insisted. Brake fluid is poisonous. Dont worry, said the mechanic. I can stop anytime.

Major has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C.

Major is the son of Frank and Theresa Major of Beverly Hills. He is a 2009 graduate of Citrus High School, Inverness. IN SERVICE AUGIESALZER Special to the ChronicleAfter spending most of his 20 years of military service overseas, one gunnery sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps chose Dunnellon to be his first home after retirement.James Gilroys godmother lives here on 30 acres and she was able to sell him 10 of those acres for his home. I have never lived in one place longer than three years, Gilroy said. This is my first home. I needed someplace small and quiet, and I have peace of mind in Dunnellon. He was a logistics chief in the Marines, making sure the equipment, transportation, food and sleep arrangements were completed for the men. He also provided security for different embassies before he officially retired in 2006. It was my life, just serving others, he said. Now, Im taking a bit of time for me. Gilroy decided to use his G.I. Bill to attend classes at the Withlacoochee Technical Institute in Inverness. He graduated with honors and became a certified welder, auto mechanic and an auto body and paint expert with plans to open a garage for classic cars. If Im going to do my things I wanted to make sure it was quality work, he said. I was always crafty and this was going to be an outlet for me. But things didnt work out as he originally planned. Before actually starting school, Gilroy met Faye Mulvey and they became friends. Then, while in school, he was introduced to the plasma machine, which cuts metal with air and electricity. Everything changed. With his new education and her knowledge of computers, they decided to start a quality custom metal art business together. Gunnyz Metal Art was the obvious name for their new venture because of Gilroys past and the Z came from hot rod lingo, which is one of his specialties. I was just going to have a garage when I got out of school, Gilroy said. Instead, I sold a 1951 Ford coup to buy the machine. The plasma machine is usually used to repair parts or to create a large number of the same object, like small metal gears, according to Gilroy. When purchased, the machine comes ready to use with their computer software. We didnt get the template software package that also comes with the machine because it goes out to everyone, Mulvey said. I make my own designs and each custom piece is different and unique. The machine Gilroy was trained on in school was not exactly the same one he purchased for the business, but he managed to make it work. He figured out the machine and I figured out CAD, Mulvey said about learning the computer assisted design software. We bought the machine to do exactly what we are doing. The process to make one of the custom metal art pieces starts with Mulvey taking a photo of the object, then she makes adjustments through photo shop and uses graphics or CAD, then gives the finished artwork to Gilroy. Making sure all the metal pieces are connected together, he then cuts the design out of steel on the plasma machine and puts his finishing touches on it. Gilroy buys multiple sheets of hotrolled steel from a steel distributor. He shops around for the best price and has traveled as far as Tampa to get the best deal. The metal has turned into many custom pieces and a lot of stock pieces of horses or birds. We are both creative in our own way and it shows in our work, said Mulvey of the different pieces they create. Hot rod cars speak to him and bunnies in the garden speak to me. Three custom signs are on display at the Blue Gator in Dunnellon. They also are working on a sign of the Masonic logo for the Masonic Lodge in Trenton. The couple made a large custom sign for a specialty auto store and then created a small business card holder to match the sign. The cost of the metal art depends on the amount of time and materials needed to complete a custom project or an item they have on display. We save a lot of cost by working at home, Gilroy said. I feel real good about our prices. Gilroy and Mulvey display some of their pieces at the First Saturday Market in Dunnellon.

They had cellphones in hand, ready to snap pictures of a lifeless stadium. About an hour earlier, they emptied the Swamp in what will go down as Floridas worst loss in school history. Kevin Ellison ran for two touchdowns, Jerick McKinnon had a huge score late and fourtouchdown underdog Georgia Southern stunned Florida 26-20 Saturday without completing a pass. No lower-division team had ever beaten the Gators, who won their previous seven games against Football Championship Subdivision teams by an average of 45 points. So this was a shocker, even though Florida (4-7) lost its sixth consecutive game and secured its first losing season since 1979. Very disappointed for our program, an embarrassment (to be) in this situation, Gators coach Will Muschamp said. Its all disappointing. Its hard to measure it at this point. Georgia Southern (7-4) ran for 429 yards all of the teams offense and the most against Florida since Nebraska rolled up 524 in the 1996 Fiesta Bowl. McKinnon finished with 125 yards rushing, including a 14yard touchdown with 2:57 remaining. Ellison added 118 yards on the ground, scoring on runs of 45 and 1. Fullback William Banks also gashed the Gators, getting 94 yards up the middle. His 53yarder on a third-and-2 play set up the winning score. Florida had a chance to win it, thanks partly to two missed extra points. Skyler Mornhinweg, making his second consecutive start in place of Tyler Murphy (shoulder), got the Gators in scoring territory, but his final two throws fell incomplete. He had Quinton Dunbar open in the corner of the end zone on third down from the 17, but his pass floated high. He tried to force one to Solomon Patton on the Associated PressGeorgia Southern quarterback Kevin Ellison looks for an opening past Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis, left, and Dante Fowler Jr. (6) as he gets a block from Irving Huggins (22) during the first half Saturday in Gainesville. Bucs hit road to face Detroit Associated PressDETROIT The Detroit Lions control their playoff picture, sharing first place in the NFC North with Chicago, a team theyve beaten twice to own the potential tiebreaker. Detroit has four of its next five games at home, including Sundays matchup against Tampa Bay, and only one game remaining against a team that currently has a winning record. The Lions, though, turned a great position into only a good one by blowing a fourpoint, fourth-quarter lead in last weeks loss at Pittsburgh. We still own our destiny, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said. We can continue to hold those reins as long as we take care of business. If Detroit can avoid losing two straight for the first time this year against a team with a two-game winning streak, the franchise will take another step toward earning a spot in the postseason for the second time in three seasons. Perhaps even win a division title for the first time in two decades. When Tampa Bay (2-8) plays the Lions on the road, here are five things to watch:Megatron meets Revis IslandLions receiver Calvin Johnson is in a spectacular stretch of his twotime All-Pro career, heading into a matchup with Darrelle Revis, who shut him down in their only other meeting. Revis limited Johnson to a career-low-matching one reception for 13 yards, the fourth-lowest total of career, three years ago to help the New York Jets win at Detroit 23-20 in overtime. The Buccaneers signed the three-time All-Pro cornerback to a six-year, $96 million for games like this one, having confidence in him even though he needed major surgery on his left knee early last season with the Jets. Is he all the way back? Probably not, but he is getting real Tampa Bay Bucs (2-8) at Detroit Lions (6-4) Time: 1 p.m. today. TV: FOX.

The No. 2 Seminoles easily rolled over the Vandals. No. 2 FSU has no trouble with Idaho during 80-14 home beatdown See BUCS/ Page B6 Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Jameis Winston threw for 225 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Florida State broke a school record for points in a game in an 80-14 victory against Idaho Saturday. Florida State (11-0) topped the 77 points the Seminoles scored in 1995 against North Carolina State to remain unbeaten. The Seminoles continue to focus on football while the ongoing sexual assault investigation of Winston casts a shadow over the program. State attorney Willie Meggs said Saturday it is unlikely that a final decision will be made before Thanksgiving on whether to charge the quarterback. The lawyer of the accuser, Patricia Carroll, claims Winston raped the victim on Dec. 7, 2012. Winstons lawyer Tim Jansen said the sex between the two was consensual. Florida State is now two wins from a likely berth in the BCS championship game. The Seminoles finish the regular season at Florida (4-7), which lost 26-20 to Georgia Southern on Saturday and will be heavy underdogs against the Seminoles. Florida State should go into the Atlantic Coast Conference championship without a loss and be favored again. A trip to Pasadena for the title game is nearly within its grasp. Winston, a Heisman Trophy frontrunner, played just one series in the second half. The Seminoles have dominated throughout the season, but 66 points was the largest margin of victory since a 69-3 win against Murray State in the 2012 season opener. Devonta Freeman opened up the scoring with a 60-yard run on their seventh offensive snap of the game. That was the beginning of the punishing day for a run game that posted 336 yards rushing. He had 129 yards on 11 carries as the entire backfield got loose. James Wilder Jr. carried an entire possession on his back in the second quarter. He capped a five-play, 85-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown with 5:54 left in the second quarter. Wilder carried the ball on four of those five plays and accounted for every yard. Karlos Williams added 114 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries. Kenny Shaw recorded his first 100yard game of the season in the last home game of his career. He finished with 107 yards and two touchdowns on five receptions. Kelvin Benjamin hauled in two touchdowns on his three receptions and See FLORIDA/ Page B6 See FSU/ Page B3

Life is funny. I just got to the point of raising four kids to adulthood and then surprise we have another. Watching my youngest 8year-old daughter learn to play soccer reminds me when my oldest 25 yearold daughter played soccer in Arizona at the same age. She was an outstanding runner and when she was leading the pack, dribbling the ball to score, another girl kicked her leg attempting to bring her down and prevent her from scoring. My daughter trusted her competitors to play fair and by the rules. I was amazed how these illegal tactics started at such a young age. This example is microscopic compared to todays adult trust issues in sports. Trust is basic to our American way of life and is particularly key in sports participation. As kids, probably in an age gone by, we learned to play by the rules. Little did we realize that one of the major reasons was to avoid damage to the health and well being not only to ourselves but our competitors as well. Unfortunately as adults and in particular adult athletes, better known as college and professional athletes, too often the rules are forgotten. We are trusting and dependent on doctors to present the best scenario for our care without conflict. Rarely do we think about trust in relationship to sports and athletics and in particular the relationship to physical injuries that result from breaking that trust. Athletes must have a self-trust. Trust is a skill in which athletes let go of conscious control over movements and allow automatic execution of the skills and reactions that have been developed through training. People may better appreciate the importance of trust in team sports. As a coach, it is critically important that the team trusts you. The team has to be able to react appropriately to instructions to fully reach their potential as athletes and to function together as a team. Treating an athlete, a doctor is entrusted with the need to be knowledgeable in treating the sports injury from the perspective of the athlete or sportsman. The athlete trusts the doctor to facilitate a recovery in order to return to his or her sport. The referees, umpires and judges can only do so much to maintain the rules of the sports. Just as police officers can do only so much to maintain the rules of the road, it is trust that is incumbent on drivers to stop at red lights, not pass on the solid line or approaching hills and slow in school zones. As athletes, we have to trust other athletes to follow the rules to avoid serious injury and possibly death. A runner, not following the rules, cut into Mary Deckers lane prematurely during her famed Olympic distance race. The resulting trip, fall and defeat in this Olympic race basically ended her top-level competitive career. This minor disobedience of the rules had little physical impact on the runner. Direct violation of the rules such as helmetto-helmet and spear tackling, use of cocaine and other drugs and stimulants results in serious injury by emotionally charging and intensifying the contacts. Big running backs colliding with 200 to 300pound defensive players traveling at 4.0 seconds for 40 yards has an impact force of thousands of pounds. Multiply the intensity of that tackle with some stimulant drugs and there is an elevated potential for disaster. In boxing, Mike Tyson recently admitted he broke the trust of his competitors. He admitted to being on drugs during his fights resulting in an ear being bitten off during a clinch. A pre-eminent trust in your boxing opponent is to not bite, punch you below the belt or throw a punch after the bell. Even ultimate cage fighting has rules and the need for some level of trust between the competitors. Contrary to popular belief, the sport does have rules to which the fighters must adhere. There are 31 fouls, contestants are not allowed to strike the back of the head or spine, strike or grab the throat or gouge orifices. Fighters must wear gloves weighing between four and six pounds. Groin protectors are optional. Trust in the rules to protect from severe injuries is crucial in this sport. Just think about it in this sport. Baseball players are entrusted with not throwing a pitch at the batters head. Not being perfect, errant pitches occur. But if throwing at the head were purposeful and common place, the game would be pretty boring because the pitcher would become the 1,000-pound gorilla dominating the game. At some point we hope that the trickle down theory applies to good sportsmanship by adult athletes trying to follow rules versus how to get around them. In that vein, our young athletes might be more motivated to keep the trust and subsequently safety in their game. In our modern world of athletic conflict, we have replaced the shaking of the right hand from the days of knights and chivalry with trust to follow the rules to prevent athletic injuries. Athletes of every ilk face the issues of trust every time they train or compete and in most instances are true to their endeavors. Have a happy, safe and trusting Thanksgiving.Ron Joseph, M.D., a hand, shoulder and upper extremity orthopedic surgeon at SeaSpine Orthopedic Institute, may be reached at rbjhand@ cox.net.B2SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000GFXS Golfapalooza Demo Day! at Skyview Driving Range 2100 N.

COLLEGEFOOTBALLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 B3 now has a touchdown in six of his last seven games. The Vandals (1-10) were never competitive and that began at the line of scrimmage. They had no answer for nose guard Timmy Jernigan and couldnt create running lanes or protect the quarterback. Jernigan had a team-high 6 tackles, including 4 1/2 for loss and a season-high 2 1/2 sacks. Taylor Davis threw for 220 yards and a touchdown, but three interceptions turned into 14 points for Florida State. Linebacker Telvin Smith returned one of the interceptions 79 yards for a score in the second quarter. The Seminoles have now scored a non-offensive touchdown in three consecutive games. Idaho managed just 59 rushing yards and threw four interceptions. Dezmon Epps finished with 126 yards on seven receptions. FSUContinued from Page B1 Miami stops losing streak vs. UVA Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS Tracy Howard returned an interception 19 yards for a touchdown on the games first snap, the first of four scores created by Miamis defense, and the Hurricanes kept their divisional title hopes alive by beating Virginia 45-26 on Saturday. Stephen Morris passed for 214 yards and two touchdowns in his home finale for Miami (8-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Dallas Crawford rushed for two touchdowns, Allen Hurns had 126 receiving yards and a score and Stacy Coley had a 62yard touchdown catch for Miami. David Gilbert ran a fumble back 72 yards for a touchdown in the final minutes for Miami. Both of Crawfords scores were set up by interceptions, one by Ladarius Gunter late in the first half, the other by Kacy Rodgers II in the fourth quarter. Taquan Mizzell had two touchdowns and Kevin Parks ran for 130 yards and a score for Virginia (2-9, 0-7), which has dropped eight straight overall and lost to Miami for the first time in four years. Starting quarterback David Watford completed 10 of 25 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown for the Cavaliers, but was intercepted three times, all of them getting turned into touchdowns.Frosh leads SMU past South Florida 16-6TAMPA Freshman backup quarterback Neal Burcham lead two thirdperiod scoring drives to help SMU overcome the loss of injured starter Garrett Gilbert and beat South Florida 16-6 on Saturday night. Gilbert left with 1:21 to play in first half when he hurt his leg while attempting to slide while running the football and was assisted off the field. Gilbert, who was 19-for-23 for 138 yards and one interception, was replaced by Burcham. Gilbert entered the game leading the nation in total offense at 405.7 yards per game. Over his previous five games, the senior was even more productive, averaging 459 yards with 17 touchdowns and just one interception. SMU (5-5, 4-2) has won four of its past five and can become bowl eligible by winning one of its remaining two games. The Mustangs travel to Houston before finishing up at home against American Athletic Conference leader Central Florida. Chris Dunkley had a late fourthquarter 50-yard punt return touchdown for USF (2-8, 2-4), which has lost four straight. In addition to being ranked last in the AAC in total offense, averaging 263.7 yards per game, the Bulls were also last in scoring offense at just under 15 points per game. Associated PressMiami quarterback Stephen Morris hands off to Dallas Crawford during the second half Saturday against Virginia in Miami Gardens. Ducks loss helps Cardinal Associated PressStanford is back on top of the Pac-12 North after Arizona did to Oregon what Southern California did to the Cardinal last week. Though this upset was far more surprising and emphatic. The fifth-ranked Ducks had their national championship hopes smashed by Arizona, 42-16 on Saturday as No. 10 Stanford was routing California. The results give Stanford the Pac-12 North title for a second straight season. Oregon (9-2) might be able to get an at-large BCS bid if it can close out with a victory against Oregon State, but its looking like a bit of a long shot now. Oregon lost for the second time in three games. In the last three weeks the Ducks have lost to Stanford to give the Cardinal control of the division, then regained control when Stanford fell to USC, and now have given it away again. Stanford has a chance to reach back-to-back Rose Bowls for the first time since the 1971 and games.No. 1 Alabama 49, Chattanooga 0TUSCALOOSA, Ala. AJ McCarron passed for two touchdowns and became No. 1 Alabamas winningest quarterback. McCarron completed 13 of 16 passes for 171 yards before leaving one drive into the second half of his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Crimson Tide (11-0). He improved to 36-2 as a starter, breaking a tie with Jay Barker for the school mark. McCarron and Alabama got an easy tuneup for the Iron Bowl against No. 6 Auburn to determine the Southeastern Conference Western Division champion. The Tide produced its third shutout of the year and blocked a field goal against the FCS Mocs (8-4). Kenyan Drake ran for 77 yards and a 13-yard touchdown with starting tailback T.J. Yeldon sitting out to rest a sprained ankle. Christion Jones scored on a 75yard punt return in the second quarter.No. 4 Ohio State 42, Indiana 14COLUMBUS, Ohio Braxton Miller ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns and passed for two more Saturday to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a 42-14 victory over Indiana, extending the Buckeyes schoolrecord win streak to 23 in a row. The snowy victory clinched a division title for the Buckeyes (11-0, 70), locking up a spot opposite Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game on Dec. 7. Carlos Hyde became the first running back to go over 1,000 yards rushing in Urban Meyers 12 years as a head coach. He ran for 117 yards and two scores. Ohio States defense throttled the Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5), who came in averaging 39 points a game.Arizona 42, No. 5 Oregon 16TUCSON, Ariz. KaDeem Carey ran for 206 yards and four touchdowns while becoming Arizonas all-time leading rusher. Coming off a disappointing home loss to Washington State, Arizona (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) didnt back off the throttle of its up-tempo offense against the fast-paced Ducks. With Carey bursting through the line to punish defenders and B.J. Denker dinking and dashing with a variety of fakes, the Wildcats jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead and kept going for their first win over a topfive team since knocking off No. 1 Washington 1992. Oregon (9-2, 6-2) gave the Wildcats plenty of help with three turnovers and turning it over twice more on downs to end its national title hopes and, possibly, its fouryear run of BCS bowls.No. 7 Clemson 52, The Citadel 6CLEMSON, S.C. Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and 288 yards in the final home game of his career. The game was more of a celebration than a contest for the Tigers (10-1), who now have not lost in 28 games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents. Clemson didnt score on its first possession, but made it to the end zone the next five times it touched the ball. Boyd had touchdown passes of 8, 9, 19, 24 and 30 yards. He ended the game with 102 passing TDs in his career and tied the Tigers record of five passing TDs in a game for the sixth time. Three times Boyd has thrown for five scores in the first half. Clemson outgained The Citadel (5-7) 558 yards to 172 yards.No. 18 LSU 34, No. 9 Texas A&M 10BATON ROUGE, La. Terrance Magee rushed for a career-high 149 yards and LSUs defense pulled the plug on Johnny Manziel and Texas A&Ms video-game offense. Zach Mettenberger completed 11of-20 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns on a cold, wet and windy afternoon. Jarvis Landry highlighted his four-catch, 87-yard performances with touchdowns of 40 and 10 yards. LSU (8-3, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) piled up 324 yards on the ground and outgained Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) in total yards, 517-299. What was likely Manziels only visit to Tiger Stadium was among the worst outings of his otherwise brilliant career. He passed for 224 yards and a TD, but completed only 16 of 41, was sacked twice and intercepted twice as the Aggies road winning streak ended at 10.No. 10 Stanford 63, California 13STANFORD, Calif. Ty Montgomery matched a Stanford school record with five touchdowns, scoring the first four times he touched the ball, and the Cardinal clinched a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with Oregons loss. Kevin Hogan threw four of his five scoring passes to Montgomery, including a 9-yard completion just before halftime that put Stanford ahead 42-13. The Cardinal (9-2, 7-2 Pac12) bounced back from last weeks loss at USC but needed No. 5 Oregon to lose one of its final two games to earn a spot in the conference championship. The Ducks lost 42-16 in Tucson, and Stanfords fans led chants of Arizona! Arizona! Hogan set career highs with 329 yards passing and the five TD passes. Cal (1-11, 0-9) lost its 10th straight to finish new coach Sonny Dykes disappointing debut year.No. 12 S. Carolina 70, C. Carolina 10COLUMBIA, S.C. Connor Shaw passed for a touchdown and ran for a score in less than a quarter of work as South Carolina scored the most points in Steve Spurriers nine seasons as coach. The Gamecocks (9-2) scored on their first six possessions and surpassed their output from a 69-24 win over Troy in 2010. And it came with South Carolina resting several starters for rival Clemson next Saturday night, including defensive linemen Jadeveon Clowney and Kelcy Quarles and the Southeastern Conferences leading rusher in Mike Davis. The Gamecocks won their record 17th straight game at home and Shaw improved to 25-5 as a starter, moving past Todd Ellis wins mark The news wasnt all bad for Coastal Carolina (10-2). The Chants learned before halftime they shared a Big South championship and earned the leagues FCS playoff bid.No. 13 Michigan St. 30, Northwestern 6EVANSTON, Ill. Connor Cook threw for a career-high 293 yards, Jeremy Langford ran for 150, and Michigan State clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game. Cook threw for two touchdowns. Langford ran for two scores, and the Spartans (10-1, 7-0) reached the conference title game for the second time in three years. Langford ran 20 yards untouched for the games first touchdown in the second quarter. He sealed it with a 37-yard scoring run in the fourth after Kurtis Drummond picked off a short pass by Trevor Siemian, sending Michigan State to its seventh straight win and Northwestern (4-7, 0-7) to its seventh loss in a row.No. 19 Arizona St. 38, No. 14 UCLA 33PASADENA, Calif. Taylor Kelly passed for 225 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 99 yards and another score, and No. 19 Arizona State hung on in the fourth quarter to clinch its first Pac-12 South title with a 38-33 victory over No. 14 UCLA. Marion Grice had 95 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving for the surging Sun Devils (9-2, 7-1 Pac12), who will face Stanford in the league title game in two weeks. If Arizona State beats Arizona in the Territorial Cup game next week, the Sun Devils will host the Cardinal. Arizona State blew most of a 22point halftime lead over the Bruins (8-3, 5-3) and scored just three points in the second half, but its defense held UCLA scoreless on its final two drives.No. 15 Fresno St. 69, New Mexico 28FRESNO, Calif. Derek Carr threw for 527 yards and a schoolrecord seven touchdowns in his final regular-season home game and Fresno State clinched a spot in the Mountain West title game. Davante Adams had nine catches for 246 yards and four scores and Josh Harper added 10 for 161 and three TDs as the Bulldogs (10-0, 70) gained a school-record 820 yards and clinched first place in the West Division. They will likely host the conference championship game on Dec. 7 as long as they remain ahead of the Mountain Division winner in the BCS standings. The Lobos (3-8, 1-6) lost their 15th straight game against a ranked opponent as they struggled on offense without injured quarterback Cole Gautsche and running back Kasey Carrier and had no defensive answer to stop Carr and the Bulldogs bevy of playmakers.No. 16 Wisconsin 20, Minnesota 7MINNEAPOLIS James White rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown and No. 16 Wisconsin beat Minnesota for the 10th straight time. Jared Abbrederis had seven catches for 67 yards and a touchdown and Chris Borland recovered two fumbles and forced one to tie the NCAA record for career fumbles caused. After the game, the Badgers (9-2, 6-1 Big Ten) hoisted Paul Bunyans Axe and used it to chop the Gophers goal post when the time ran out. Aaron Hill returned an interception for a touchdown and David Cobb rushed for 68 yards for the Golden Gophers (8-3, 4-3). But Philip Nelson completed just 7 of 23 passes for 83 yards and the Gophers turned the ball over three times to snap a four-game winning streak.No. 21 Louisville 24, Memphis 17LOUISVILLE, Ky. Teddy Bridgewater threw for 220 yards and a touchdown in what could be his final home game for Louisville. The Cardinals used a 17-point surge over the second and third quarters to provide a cushion. Louisville (10-1, 6-1 American Athletic Conference) seemed in control leading 24-3 before quarterback Paxton Lynch rallied Memphis (3-7, 1-5) with a 4-yard run early in the fourth quarter and a 6-yard TD pass to Jesse Milleson with 6:07 remaining. The Tigers defense was poised to give Lynch another opportunity but Reggis Ball was penalized for roughing punter Ryan Johnson, giving the Cardinals first down at the Memphis 29 with 2:58 left. Louisville eventually turned it over on downs at the Memphis 6. But with no timeouts left, the Tigers gained just 17 yards before time expired.No. 22 Oklahoma 41, Kansas State 31MANHATTAN, Kan. Brennan Clay ran for a career-high 200 yards and two touchdowns and Sooners coach Bob Stoops moved past Barry Switzer for the most wins in school history. It was the 157th victory at Oklahoma for Stoops, and it came against his former mentor. Stoops was a defensive assistant under Kansas State coach Bill Snyder from 1989-95. Freshman Trevor Knight, filling in for the injured Blake Bell, threw for 171 yards and accounted for two TDs for the Sooners (9-2, 6-2 Big 12). He made do without running back Damien Williams and wide receiver Lacoltan Bester, who were reportedly suspended earlier in the week. Tyler Lockett had 12 catches for a school-record 278 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas State (6-5, 4-4), which had its four-game win streak end.No. 25 Duke 28, Wake Forest 21WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Anthony Boone threw three touchdown passes and No. 25 Duke held on for its seventh straight win. Brandon Connette rushed 3 yards for the go-ahead score late in the third quarter and Boone was 24 of 29 for 256 yards. The Blue Devils (9-2, 5-2 ACC) fell behind 14-0 before rallying to match the school record for victories and remain in control of the Coastal Division. Boone threw touchdown passes covering 58 and 10 yards to Jamison Crowder and 4 yards to Max McCaffrey. Thomas Brown returned a fumble 59 yards for a touchdown for Wake Forest (4-7, 2-6). Tanner Price was 12 of 27 for 124 yards in his final home game with a 6-yard touchdown to Spencer Bishop and an 11-yard touchdown run. But he was intercepted by Ross Cockrell with 2:30 left. Associated PressStanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery dives into the end zone for a touchdown past California defensive back Kameron Jackson during the first half Saturday in Stanford, Calif.

Should the Panthers stumble today at Miami, so much of the legitimacy they gained from that win could disappear. The Dolphins come off a win over San Diego despite all the inner turmoil over the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin affair, and remain firmly in the AFC wild-card race. So if anyone in the Carolinas sees this game as a slam dunk, theyd better re-evaluate. They are 5-5 and they are going to bring out their best football, Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said. But I dont see us letting down. We are going to go out and play our best football. Were trying to go up, were not trying to go down. Carolina owns the top wildcard berth in the NFC with six weeks to go. It has won six straight with an overpowering defense and timely offense. Quarterback Cam Newton is playing as well as he did in taking top offensive rookie honors in 2011. Everything is coming together for the Panthers. Which always can breed cockiness. That is one of things Ive talked to the players about everything weve done, hey, we can take a step back (with a loss), coach Ron Rivera said. And we dont want to. So we have to stay focused and focus in on who were playing. We want to be relevant. We want to remain relevant. We want to stay in the conversation. So does Miami, of course, and a victory Sunday would position it for a stretch run with nothing but conference games remaining. Obviously theyve been on a roll as far as football is concerned, playing pretty well, and were coming off a game where we feel like we can take the momentum and kind of build with it, Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake said. Try and make sure we have our season go in a positive direction. Also today, its Denver at New England, San Diego at Kansas City, Indianapolis at Arizona, Dallas at the New York Giants, Chicago at St. Louis, Tampa Bay at Detroit, Minnesota at Green Bay, the New York Jets at Baltimore, Pittsburgh at Cleveland, Tennessee at Oakland, and Jacksonville at Houston. On Monday night, its San Francisco at Washington. Off this week are Seattle (10-1), Cincinnati (7-4) Philadelphia (6-5) and Buffalo (4-7). On Thursday night, New Orleans handed host Atlanta its fifth straight loss, 17-13. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Saints (9-2) overcame a lackluster offensive showing. Brees hooked up with Jimmy Graham on a 44-yard touchdown and Benjamin Watson on a 1-yard scoring play in the first half and good enough to give the firstplace Saints a sweep of disappointing Atlanta (2-9). The Falcons will have their first losing season since 2008. Denver (9-1) at New England (7-3) Ah, Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning. Always a high-profile matchup between two all-time greats. Brady owns a 9-4 record against his rival, and Patriots coach Bill Belichick usually comes up with a defensive scheme that slows or even confounds Manning. But New England, plagued by injuries throughout the defense, might not have the talent to slow Denvers attack that is on a nearrecord pace. Its incredible to score points like that, Brady said of Denver, which has 398, 92 more than Seattle, the next most prolific team. They have a lot of guys that can make plays with the ball. Everybody contributes, thats what good offenses do. The backs contribute, the tight end contributes, the receivers contribute. Theyre all scoring touchdowns. Its not like you can just go in and stop one guy. Our defense has its work cut out for us. WR Wes Welker, who became a star in New England, returns to Foxborough after joining the Broncos this year. San Diego (4-6) at Kansas City (9-1) Now that the Chiefs have a loss and they can forget about that perfection distraction, they need to find a way to handle the enigmatic Chargers. San Diego has won four of the last five against Chiefs and has been playing opponents close, losing three straight by a combined 18 points. Kansas Citys opportunistic defense (NFL best with five defensive TDs and a plus-15 turnover differential) has 36 sacks, but will find it difficult to get to Philip Rivers, who has been trapped only 19 times. Indianapolis (7-3) at Arizona (6-4) Bruce Arians stepped in for an ill Chuck Pagano last season and won Coach of the Year in Indianapolis as an interim. He has the Cardinals job full time now, and faces the AFC South-leading Colts with an Arizona team that has won three in a row. Its a fairy tale, it really is, Arians said. I hate that to get an opportunity to be a head coach we had to go through what we had to go through last year, but it was the only way. ... This would have never happened without last year. Arizona is showing some offense lately, scoring 27 points in each of those three victories. And linebacker John Abraham has seven sacks in the last four games; his 129 career sacks are the most among active players. Indianapolis has won its last five games against Arizona dating to 1992, when Colts QB Andrew Luck was 3. San Francisco (6-4) at Washington (3-7), Monday night The defending NFC champion Niners suddenly are in a dogfight to get a wild-card playoff berth. They trail idle Seattle by 3 1/2 games and arent likely to make up that deficit in the NFC West. After two straight defeats in which the offense has sputtered, San Francisco faces a weak defense that ranks 28th overall, 26th against the pass. Much of the attention in Washington has been on whether QB Robert Griffin III was criticizing the coaches and his teammates after last Sundays loss to Philadelphia. In the midst of a flop of a season after winning the NFC East, the last thing the Redskins need is another distraction. Dallas (5-5) at New York Giants (4-6) Now that the Giants have reestablished themselves as a pretty solid team with four straight victories, they can become a challenger in the NFC East by handling up-and-down Dallas. Eli Manning has stopped throwing picks and New Yorks defense has awakened after that early-season slumber. The Cowboys come off a bye but remain undermanned because of injuries. Their defense is especially vulnerable through the air the Cowboys basically cant cover and might need a ton of points in this one. Jason Witten has been almost unstoppable by Giants with 26 receptions for 237 yards and two TDs in the last two meetings. Chicago (6-4) at St. Louis (4-6) The Bears arent losing any sleep about Jay Cutler being sidelined with a high left ankle sprain because backup quarterback Josh McCown has passed for five touchdowns with no interceptions in four games overall. The injury-plagued defense got two sacks last week from Julius Peppers, doubling his season total, and he had a season-best 11 tackles. An active Peppers is critical if Chicago is to stay in playoff contention; its tied with the Lions atop the NFC North. Rams rookie Tavon Austin became first player in NFL history with a punt return of 95-plus yards and two touchdown receptions of 55 yards or longer in last game. Bears rookie guard Kyle Long faces his older brother, Rams DE Chris Long, for the first time. Minnesota (2-8) at Green Bay (5-5) Adrian Peterson heads into his 100th career game approaching another milestone. He needs 67 yards rushing to pass Barry Sanders for thirdmost yards on the ground in the first 100 games of a career, and hes 300 yards from 10,000. The Packers have dropped three straight and wont have Aaron Rodgers back at quarterback this week. In fact, when Scott Tolzien starts for a second straight week, he will be only the third Packers QB to do so in 22 years. Brett Favre or Rodgers has been behind center during that span. Green Bay hopes to get Rodgers back for the Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit. New York Jets (5-5) at Baltimore (4-6) Ed Reed already has made one return visit to his old stomping grounds near the Inner Harbor, with Houston. The Texans cut him, he landed with the Jets, and now is back in Baltimore. Hed better hope the rest of his defensive mates come along they barely showed up in last weeks loss at Buffalo. And he should hope the Ravens defense he left behind doesnt toy with rookie QB Geno Smith the way the Bills did. Baltimore has sacks in 21 straight games. Ravens RB Ray Rice finally had a breakout last week, but New York generally is tough to run on. Pittsburgh (4-6) at Cleveland (4-6) Todays winner in this bitter rivalry can keep alive playoff hopes, although catching Cincinnati in the AFC North is a long shot. An Ohio native, Ben Roethlisberger is 15-1 against the Browns and won his last five starts against Cleveland. He comes off a strong outing in a win over the Lions: 367 yards passing and four TDs. Cleveland has lost 10 of the last 12 meetings at home with Pittsburgh. Tennessee (4-6) at Oakland (4-6) The Titans are playing the first of three straight road games. They are 2-2 away from Nashville and desperately need this one because the next two trips are to Indy and Denver. Running back Chris Johnson has four TDs rushing in the last two weeks, but Oakland ranks sixth against the run. Raiders QB Matt McGloin became the first undrafted rookie since the start of the common draft in 1967 go have TD passes and no interception in a game filling in for injured Terrelle Pryor. Jacksonville (1-9) at Houston (2-8) For those who think Houstons season cant get any worse after eight straight defeats yes, the Texans were the division favorite heading into 2013 a loss to the lowly Jaguars would be rock bottom. Houstons Andre Johnson needs 10 catches to become the 15th player to reach 900. He had career highs in receptions (14) and yards (273) in his last game against Jacksonville, so its quite possible he gets there Sunday. Associated PressCarolina quarterback Cam Newton and the Panthers need to defeat the Miami Dolphins today to keep control of an NFC wild-card spot.

Hes a lot stronger than a normal corner you would face on a regular day, Johnson said.Coaches questionedDetroits Jim Schwartz seemed to cool his potentially hot seat by leading the Lions to sole possession of first place in the NFC North. But he fired up another round of questions and criticism when a gutsy call backfired. Instead of kicking a 27-yard field goal for a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter, Schwartz called for a fake that didnt work. The Steelers scored the last two touchdowns to win 37-27. Yall say whatever you want about me dont say Im scared, Schwartz said. Schiano, meanwhile, might have improved his job security by leading Tampa Bay to two straight wins after starting 0-8 this year, and winning only one of 14 games dating back to his debut season. Schiano also dealt with the benching and release of quarterback Josh Freeman and a MRSA infections outbreak. Its been real tough, he acknowledged.On the runThe Bucs recommitted to running more three weeks ago, and rookie quarterback Mike Glennon has benefited. He attempted between 43 and 51 passes in four starts, and lost each game. With Mike James and Bobby Rainey filling in for the injured Doug Martin, Tampa Bay has rushed for 205, 140 and 186 yards, while Glennon has attempted 23, 21 and 23 passes. We had to go back to what we are, who we are, Schiano said. Rainey, an undrafted rookie cut last month by Cleveland, rushed for 163 yards and scored three touchdowns during last weeks 41-28 victory against Atlanta. They got big O-linemen that make holes for whoever is in their backfield, Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley said. Detroit has allowed its last four opponents to average fewer than 50 yards rushing after giving up an average of 125 yards in its first six games. Its a big matchup in the game, Schwartz said.Dueling defensive tacklesDetroit and Tampa Bay chose defensive tackles with back-to-back picks in the 2010 draft. Suh, selected No. 2 overall, has helped Detroit rank fifth against the run this year and he has 4 1/2 sacks. Gerald McCoy, taken one pick later, had a career-high three sacks last week to give him a career-best six this season. Both of them have lived up to their draft status, Schwartz said.Action JacksonWhen Glennon goes to the air, hes looking for Vincent Jackson. He leads the Bucs with 56 receptions for 827 yards and five scores. Jackson had 10 receptions for the second time this year against Falcons, with a season-high 165 yards and scored once. He has four 100-yard games this season and nine since signing with Tampa Bay as a free agent in 2012. BUCSContinued from Page B1 final play, but two defenders broke it up. Its very difficult for us to create explosive plays, to get anything down the field, Muschamp said. Just dont ever do it. Georgia Southern, a sixtime FCS champion making the move to the Football Bowl Subdivision next season, rushed the field and celebrated wildly. Players and coaches stopped long enough to pose for a team picture near the 30-yard line, and then the party really started. They ran toward the band and eventually settled down long enough to sing the alma mater. Someone at Florida didnt want to hear it, though. Just as the visitors got going, the hometown P .A. started blaring music louder than usual. Nonetheless, the Eagles surely will sing all the way back to Statesboro, Ga. and long into the night. There was a never a doubt in their minds, Georgia Southern coach Jeff Monken said. We didnt play a perfect game. We put ourselves in bad situations, but nobody panicked. Florida, which paid the Eagles $550,000 for this game, was left to ponder Muschamps fate. Athletic director Jeremy Foley and school president Bernie Machen said last week Muschamp was safe, but that was before the worst loss in school history and thousands of no-shows in The Swamp. Were not concerned, Florida safety Cody Riggs said. I know that a lot of people around here have Coach Muschamps back. Hes a great coach, best coach I ever had. Were not worried about that. The Gators wont be going to a bowl for the first time since 1990. They have one game remaining against rival and secondranked Florida State next Saturday to salvage something from a forgettable season. The morale on this team is at an all-time low, guard Jon Halapio said. We have a lack of leadership. We just really need to tighten up as a team. Florida had been 15-0 against FCS teams since the divisions split in 1978. Its just hurt and shock, Gators linebacker Darrin Kitchens said. Losing that type of game is embarrassing. Florida has pinned its problems on a slew of injuries. But that excuse doesnt work against Georgia Southern, which has won three in a row and played without 19 of 65 scholarship athletes. FLORIDAContinued from Page B1 Yankees near deal with McCann Associated PressNEW YORK Freeagent catcher Brian McCann and the New York Yankees are about to complete a five-year deal worth around $85 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Saturday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal wasnt finalized. The contract is expected to include a vesting option for at least another year. The deals completion is pending a physical. In an already brisk offseason throughout the majors, the McCann move would be the first major addition for the Yankees since they missed the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. They finished fourth in the AL East this year. The Yankees made finding a catcher a priority, and McCann was the best available. The seven-time AllStar played all nine of his big league seasons with the Atlanta Braves, hitting at least 20 homers for a sixth straight season before choosing to test the market after the World Series. The 29-year-old McCann returned from offseason shoulder surgery in April and hit .256 with 57 RBIs in 356 at-bats for the NL East champions. The Yankees relied heavily on career backup Chris Stewart last year after Francisco Cervelli was injured, then suspended 50 games. They had let Gold Glove catcher Russell Martin leave as a free agent in a cost-cutting move before the 2013 season. McCann bats left-handed, always a bonus for power hitters at Yankee Stadium with the short right field fence. He is a career .277 hitter with 176 home runs and 661 RBIs. The Yankees still have their own free-agent business to deal with. Star second baseman Robinson Cano is on the market and seeking a contract worth up to $300 million, and the Yankees have said they wont go that high. New York hopes to get under the 2014 tax threshold of $189 million for 2014. Not including McCanns deal, New Yorks luxury tax payroll so far is $97.1 million for seven signed players next year. Several teams have been busy since the season ended. The Detroit Tigers sent first baseman Prince Fielder to the Texas Rangers for second baseman Ian Kinsler in a swap of All-Stars with rich contracts, and the St. Louis Cardinals traded former World Series MVP David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels. Philadelphia recently resigned Carlos Ruiz, taking another top free-agent catcher off the market.Cardinals trade Freese to AngelsST. LOUIS The St. Louis Cardinals have traded former World Series MVP David Freese to the Los Angeles Angels in a four-player deal. The Cardinals also sent reliever Fernando Salas to the Angels on Friday in exchange for outfielder Peter Bourjos and prospect Randal Grichuk. The 30-year-old Freese was the MVP of the 2011 NLCS and the World Series, setting a major-league record with 21 postseason RBIs. He injured his back chasing a foul ball into the stands during spring training and never hit his stride last season. He batted .262 with nine homers and 60 RBIs, dropoffs from 2012 when he hit 20 homers with 79 RBIs and batted .293. The 26-year-old Bourjos is a career .251 hitter with speed, stealing 41 bases in 54 attempts. The 22-year-old Grichuk was an Angels first-round draft pick in 2009 and starred at Double-A Arkansas last season. Making a run Gulbis tied atop LPGA leaderboard Associated PressNAPLES Natalie Gulbis got off to a rocky start and put herself in position for a great finish. That describes her year as much as her third round Saturday in the LPGA Titleholders. Gulbis hooked a 5-iron into the water and made bogey on the par-5 opening hole, and then bounced back for a 7under 65. That gave Gulbis a share of the lead with Gerina Piller and Pornanong Phatlum of Thailand. They each had a 67. The leaders were at 11under 205, though it was far from a three-player race for the richest prize in womens golf. Stacy Lewis virtually wrapped up the Vare Trophy with a tournamentrecord 63. She was among those two shots behind. Michelle Wie shot 66 and was three shots behind.Schwartzel moves into 1-shot leadJOHANNESBURG Charl Schwartzel shot a 3under 69 to take a one-shot lead after the third round of the South African Open, the season-opening event on the European Tour. Schwartzel moved to 15under 201, with Morten Orum Madsen (69) and Marco Crespi (70) tied for second at Glendower Golf Club. South Africas Hennie Otto surged into fourth with a 65, another stroke behind.Kisner up by 2 at Pebble Beach InvitationalPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. Kevin Kisner shot a bogey-free 64 at Spyglass Hill and rallied for a two-shot lead over Jason Kokrak after three rounds of the Pebble Beach Invitational. Kisner, a PGA Tour member who won the Chile Classic in Santiago last March on the Web.com Tour, had eight birdies en route to a 13-under 201. Kokrak, one stroke behind Scott Brown after two rounds, had a 68 at Spyglass, and was alone at 203. Skip Kendall, who shot a 67, also at Spyglass, was third at 204. Chesson Hadley (67) and first-round leader Morgan Hoffmann (70) were tied at 206. Brown had a 73 at Pebble Beach and was grouped with William McGirt (70), Sam Saunders (68) and Martin Flores (66), who all played at Del Monte, at 207. Associated PressNatalie Gulbis smiles after sinking a putt on the 16th hole during the third round of the CME Group Titleholders LPGA golf tournament Saturday at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples. The day ended heading into the final round with Gulbis, Gerina Piller and Thailands Pornanong Phatlum all at 11-under par.

In the newspaper business, its usually the bad things that end up on the front page of the paper. As we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving later this week, its a good time to remember that there are plenty of good things going on in our community. Here are ten things I am thankful about:The Citrus County food bank is up and running. This Feeding America branch now provides food to dozens of local nonprofits and churches that in turn provide food to needy residents. The food bank collects surplus food from the major supermarkets in the county and then redistributes it through its warehouse in south Citrus County. The food bank is efficient and thriving thanks to the leadership of a local board of directors.Amy Meek at United Way has given the agency new leadership and enthusiasm. Instead of just raising money for local nonprofits, the United Way is working hard to improve lives one family at a time. As the saying goes, a handout helps you for one day, but a hand up gets you on your feet. The United Way now helps individuals become contributing citizens by finding education, employment and transportation solutions one family at a time. Real progress.Duke Energy has been in the news for lots of tax issues in 2013, but the real positive news is that the utility wants to build a new gas plant here. That means more jobs for the community and a new facility that will generate needed tax dollars for local government.And speaking of jobs, there has been some growth in the retail segment.

Page C2SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2013 Family touched by caring communityDear Citrus County, We would like to express our gratitude for your kindness and support over all these years and especially the last few weeks. This community was so kind to send cards, bring food, include two touching and wonderful articles in the Chronicle, attend the visitation and service, and keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Nothing gave Preacher greater joy than to be blessed with the privilege of serving as pastor of First Baptist and Cornerstone Baptist Church. He also cherished this wonderful community. Inverness is a small town compared to large cities, but it has never been small in impact or influence. Preacher was so grateful to be a part of this place where he could serve, love, always be there for someone, and know them by name. He felt so loved by the people of this dear town for which we are eternally grateful. Our family would appreciate your continued prayers, as we will keep you in ours. Thank you and God bless.The family of Dr. Babb H. Adams Astartling scandal in our so-called criminal justice system is largely unnoticed by most Americans because the media in all their forms ignore it. But the American Civil Liberties Union does not. According to a June 3 report from the ACLU, the over-policing of marijuana use combined with staggering racial bias are leading to appallingly high numbers of incarcerated black Americans: Between 2001 and 2010, there were over 8 million pot arrests in the U.S. Thats one bust every 37 seconds and hundreds of thousands ensnared in the criminal justice system. ... Marijuana use is roughly equal among blacks and whites, yet blacks are 3.73 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession (The War on Marijuana in Black and White: Report, aclu.org, June 3). Citing the ACLUs grim statistics, an August report from The Economist says blacks are almost four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession ... in some places their arrest is over eight times more likely. People with criminal records risk losing public benefits, being kicked out of public housing and suffering permanent gaps in employment and earning prospects (Waking life, economist.com, Aug. 24). In other words, their lives could be essentially over. The leading, continuing source of documented information on this brazen American prejudice is marijuana-arrests.com, an online library about marijuana possession arrests, race and police policy in New York City and beyond. The site is part of the Marijuana Arrest Research project, which examines race, police policy, and the growing number of arrests for marijuana possession and other victimless crimes in large U.S. cities, especially New York City. The organizations co-director is Harry G. Levine, a professor of sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center at City University of New York. Furthermore, Levine, whom I interviewed when I was at The Village Voicefor more than 50 years, has definitively reached a national audience in the Nov. 18 edition of The Nation magazine with his story, The Scandal of Racist Marijuana Arrests and What To Do About It. I admire The Nation for publishing this extensive array of revelations, but since its circulation is not extensive, I have chosen vital parts of it here as a public service. (As I used to tell my journalism students, I sure enjoy breaking scoops, but when another source has a crucially important story, its my responsibility to help circulate it.) Writes Levine: The vast majority (76 percent) of these arrested and charged with the crimeof marijuana possession are young people in their teens and 20s. Over the last 15 years, police departments in the United States made 10 million arrests for marijuana possession an average of almost 700,000 arrests a year. I especially hope candidates for the presidency and Congress in 2016 hear this: Police arrest blacks for marijuana possession at higher rates than whites in every state and nearly every city and county as FBI Uniform Crime Reports and state databases indisputably show. States with the largest racial disparities arrest blacks at six times the rate of whites. The list includes Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Nevada, New York and Wisconsin. If you live in any of these states, do you believe this should be the American standard of justice? Do those arrested for this victimless crime deserve to have their lives ruined forever? If you dont think so, do you plan to organize and do anything about it whether you are black, white or another race? Thanks to Harry G. Levines report, lets look at New York City, regarded by many tourists as the hippest city in America, and Chicago, which gave us the first black president: Since 1997, New York City alone has arrested and jailed more than 600,000 people for possessing marijuana; about 87 percent of the arrests are of blacks and Latinos. For years, police in New York and Chicago have arrested more young blacks and Latinos for simple marijuana possession than for any other criminal offense whatsoever. If you are black or Latino and have gone to any of the relatively few schools that actually teach American history, do you feel after knowing these documented facts that you still live in an America with a Constitution thats fair to you? Levine asks readers of all backgrounds to remember this: Young whites (age 18 to 25), however, use marijuana more than young blacks, and government studies comparing marijuana use among whites and blacks of all ages have found that both groups use it at a similar rate. And here we come to the most basic source of accountability for this triumph of modern-day Jim Crow: Such dramatic and widespread racial disparities are clearly not the product of personal prejudice or racism on the part of individual police officers. This is not a problem of training or supervision or rogue squads or bad apples. Its a systemic problem, a form of institutional racism created and administered by people at the highest levels of law enforcement and government. Think hard about that. This entrenched Jim Crow system has existed much longer than the Obama administration. Its far from the new normal. So how come We The People allow this to happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave? Oh, its the press having failed us. Yes, but are the great majority of American whites so distant from the lives of black and Latino parents, grandparents and siblings that they dont hear about members of these families being forever marred by criminal records? Any American of whatever race who feels disturbed or worse, sickened, by what Harry G. Levine has spent his life revealing should read his entire article in The Nation. Then they should confront their elected representatives with demands that they restore the victims of these vicious, unAmerican Jim Crow laws to full American citizenry.Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

The judge ruled that state law clearly says pollution control equipment should not be assessed at full value and instead should be assessed at its salvage value. The property appraiser has spent $471,000 to fight the power company on a case that looked bad from the beginning. The other 66 counties in Florida taxed pollution control one way and Citrus County did it another way. Duke is the largest taxpayer in Citrus County and the fallout from the confrontational strategy has had a devastating impact on the tax rolls of our community. When a negotiated deal could not be found between Duke and the property appraiser on their disputed $34 million tax bill, the power company paid $19 million of the bill and agreed to argue the rest in court. Duke had offered Citrus County officials $30 million; and later offered as high as $24 million to Greene, but the property appraiser wouldnt negotiate tax bills. Instead, he rolled the dice and looked to the court for support on his legal teams interpretation of the law. The $19 million payment forced the county commission to substantially raise property taxes on all other property owners in the county. Now that the court has ruled against Citrus County, all the chest thumping antiDuke comments from Greene and other politicians looks rather foolish. In another aggressive response to Dukes actions, the property appraiser sent out teams to re-value the energy complex and came back with an even higher assessed value for the companys Citrus County holdings. But Duke has already announced it is shutting down the nuclear plant and there will be at least a $900 million reduction in value because of the over-assessed pollution control equipment. Those close to the dispute say that Duke will soon file a lawsuit against Greene and the county to challenge the higher assessment for next year. That means more legal costs for the taxpayers of the community and further delays in a resolution of the conflict. As we have said from the beginning of this conflict, a negotiated settlement is in the best interest of Citrus County. The property appraiser is listening to his legal teams position that additional court fights are needed to protect the citizens and get a fair payment from the power company. This is the same legal team that has earned $471,000 of tax dollars in a failed fight. Fighting a technical legal battle with populace rhetoric and emotion might work at election time, but it is far more difficult in a courtroom. The power company, through its history as Florida Power, Progress Energy and now Duke, has been a good employer and tax payer in our community. As the largest power company in America, Duke has a responsibility to its stockholders, ratepayers, employees and the communities it serves. The priority list is in that order and just like every other company in the country, it wants to pay lower taxes. For decades utility officials have sat down and used formulas to agree on what fair tax should be paid. Via those negotiations, Duke has at times paid more than 25 percent of the total taxes in the county. Before Citrus County wastes hundreds of thousands of more dollars on legal fees, we would again urge county leadership to sit with Duke and find a compromise. This court decision should have a sobering effect on those in the property appraisers office. Duke is the largest power company in the country and their legal counsel is the best and the brightest. We need less bravado from our local officials and a real good faith effort at reopening the negotiations to find a fair tax value. Citrus County residents are sick of public officials spending our tax dollars to fight court cases. Its time for negotiations.

It is Well with My Soul, Horatio Spafford and Phillip Bliss, circa 1884.While I try to keep all of my slices of life light and cheery, it is an unavoidable truth that at times, in every life, grief is one of the slices. Helen Eva Hill Lynch, Sept. 21, 1931 Nov. 10, 2013. She was an extraordinary woman: a loving wife, the mother of five, the grandmother of 10, and the great-grandmother of 10. I cannot begin to tell Helens story in the 600 words I usually allow myself per column. So, in this writing, I will stick to recounting how special she was to me. Helen was my Cheryls mother, and for 47 of her 82 years, she was my motherin-law. I knew her when she was a young woman and she knew me when I was a young man. Many events occurred and many years passed while we were family. After someone dies, most of us remember only the good, but with every ounce of honesty I can muster, I will say as an unadorned fact that there was never a cross word between my motherin-law and me. Mother-inlaw jokes are stock-in-trade for standup comedians, but I had no harsh words to say or uncomplimentary thoughts to think about mine. Helen put up with me as her son-inlaw for well over half of her life and more than two-thirds of mine. We bonded quickly. She readily accepted me as her son-in-law when Cheryl and I married even though I had so little to offer. For almost five decades, when there was a family gathering, she and I would usually find time for a bit of one-on-one conversation. We would talk about whatever crossed our minds and, without fail, we would talk about her Sherry and my Cheryl. It made no difference that I called my sweetheart by her formal first name and Helen continued to use the nickname she gave her baby, we both knew who we were talking about, and we always came to the same conclusion: we were both blessed beyond measure to have her as a part of our lives. I suspect the storied battles between sons-in-law and mothers-in-law occur when a mother is either unable or unwilling to see a daughters shortcomings. Helen and I had no such problems. We saw eye-toeye. Though we both realized our girl is human, and as such, she is bound to have faults, neither of us could ever see them. Soon after receiving the news that her mother had passed, Cheryl began to sing the words of the first verse of It is Well With My Soul. I then held her in my arms while we both cried. Ive been here before, and now, I will do the very best I can to help Cheryl, our children and all of the other family members, with the grief we are sharing. And, I will take comfort in knowing that, regardless of circumstances, it is well. Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Thou has taught me to say, it is well Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE coming to Inverness. New businesses and new jobs are happening.Floral City is going through a renaissance of sorts and there is plenty of commercial and art activity taking place. The bike trail hub on State Road 48 is going strong and business leaders promote continued events throughout the year. Floral City is a happening place.Citrus County is one of the most giving places in the country. While our household average income may not be the highest, our citizens are supportive of so many different nonprofits, educational, environmental and social programs. We have a giving community we shouldnt forget that.The construction of County Road 486 is almost complete and the multiyear four-laning work will end. Traffic will flow smoother and the delays will soon become a distant memory.Joanna Castle is taking the Citrus County YMCA to a new level with her leadership in the county. The Y is constantly expanding programs and hopes to start construction of its Citrus facility sometime in 2014.While some branches of local government have found reasons for conflict, the city of Crystal River has entered a new era of making good things happen. The city is busy expanding parks, rebuilding roads, establishing bike trails, rebuilding the old downtown area and getting ready for the opening of the Three Sisters Springs property. A less combative leadership team is now in place at the city council and the group is making good things happen.The unemployment rate has dropped, home prices are rising and homes are actually selling. Our economy has lagged behind the rest of the state and country, but it is finally coming to life. This Thanksgiving, lets remember there are good things happening in Citrus County and be thankful for the progress we have made. More good things can happen if people work together to find solutions and common ground.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan@chronicleonline.com. WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Getting closerWednesdays paper (Nov. 14) there, Chronicle, youre getting closer about the mandate not being the law, about the vaccines you have to take so you can go to school. You havent come right out and said it yet, just like you havent followed up. Youre printing it. Youre a lot better. Youre getting closer, Chronicle. I will give you kudos on that. Youre getting there. Youre almost there. Have a great day.Getting rich at boat rampI read the news clip in the Chronicle about the display of artifacts found during the dredging of Chazz Springs. However, one statement made was false. The writer stated the display was at the campground boat ramp. Well, it is not the campground boat ramp. The boat ramp was paid for with taxpayers money and belongs to the residents of Citrus County. Our BOCC has allowed a private company to privatize our ramp and they charge $7 to park your truck and trailer.Good call, TDCWell, Im happy to see in Nov. 14s Chronicle that the TDC, after its aborted hiring of Robert Marx or rather, its attempt at hiring him for an executive directors position that it didnt know what was going to be. Im happy that it conceded that it must first decide what it wants from the executive. Is that not getting the cart before the horse? Its absolutely amazing that our government officials can work in that manner.Love the college-mall ideaImagine that; the Crystal River Mall as a college site. I think thats the best idea I have ever read in Sound Off in all these years. Thats a great idea. All those stores could be classrooms. The internal area could be a study site. There could be kiosks with coffee and meals and different things for the students to purchase if they wanted and it would be a fab ulous area. That would be wonderful for the community and I would support that 100 percent. Id go there all the time myself just to read the newspaper and Im sure I would take classes in creative writing, in fixing a vehicle, in all kinds of things financial matters. It doesnt have to be college courses, just all kinds of classes that people would want to know about. We could do that. Please, commissioners, look into that.Editors note:It may be a great idea, but its not a county commission issue. The mall is owned by a private business.Thanks for returned walletThis is a big thank you to whoever sent my wallet back to me anonymously to Floral City. I wont say my name, but a big thank you to whoever sent that back to me intact. It was so much appreciated. Thank you so much. You dont know. God bless you.Tourism is easyAbout tourism: If we already have in Citrus County Visitors and Convention Bureau, then why do we need a tourist person? Isnt that what thats all about? After you come to Citrus County and you see the manatees and you go play golf and go fishing, there is nothing else to do here. Thanks to Wheeler and BrownApplause, applause to Paula Wheeler and Ken Brown. Thank you for speaking up about permits granting commercial drilling into our aquifer for private industry to bottle our water and ship it out of our county. And if that isnt enough of a slap in the face to each citizen, they sell it and we watch them pocket the profits. You go, Wheeler and Brown. Thank you again.No room to zoomRaise the speed limit to 75? They have to be kidding. You get run over now. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 Letters toTHE EDITOR Trunk or Treat a successNature Coast EMS would like to thank the following participants with our successful fourth annual Trunk or Treat; Trooper Tod Cloud and Florida Highway Patrol, Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, Citrus County Sheriffs Office DARE program, Citrus County Fire Rescue, Citrus Memorial Health System, Nature Coast EMS Explorer Post 605, SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco), Nature Coast Clinical Research, and Nature Coast EMS team members and their families who worked on this fun event. We would also like to thank the Citrus County Chronicle, Citrus 95 and Fox 96.7 for their support in promoting our Trunk or Treat event. We hope those who attended the event with their families enjoyed themselves, and look forward to an even bigger and better community event next year.Floyd Mead clinical supervisor, Trunk or treat event chairman, Nature Coast EMSEnjoy, respect natureReferencing the letter on the death of the gopher turtle, may I comment that I have been a resident for less than a year and am in awe and wonder that across my street there resides a gopher turtle who it is my privilege to see when he or she makes an appearance along the side of our street a very gentle giant who seems to forage on the few grasses and then makes its way back into the woods. Once, fortunately, my husband was outside and the turtle was in the street. He was able to relocate the turtle before oncoming cars ran over it. Not being used to the wildlife here, I look forward to viewing the creatures still able to exist despite what we humans have done to destroy their environment. Let us be cautious and enjoy with respect and not destroy when nature provides for us.Karen Mills Sugarmill WoodsWhat are you selling us?This is in regards to the letter from Ronald Lewis on Oct. 21. It is amusing how he used the words Hitler, Nazi Germany and Obamacare in the same paragraph. The only thing that comes to mind that Obama didnt lie about is that he wants to fundamentally transform America. He has repeated loud and often, if you like your insurance, you can keep it, if you like your doctor, you can keep him or her. If Obamacare is so great, why are its proponents spending so much money trying to sell it to the American people? We need health care reform, but not at the expense of our freedom and liberty to choose to whom we pay for it. We have taken care of those less fortunate through our taxes and charities, but not as good of care as we do the foreign countries. About the U.S. Constitution and the lawof the land, where in the Constitution does it say that the president doesnt have to enforce the part of the law he doesnt like and can exempt whomever he wants? In my opinion, the members of the tea party are ordinary, patriotic citizens trying to block the socialist, communist factions in this government.Wauneta Knoop Floral CityProud of sheriffs officeI am a recent graduate of the 99th Citizens Academy. Now I understand why everyone I spoke to raved about the course. The pride, professionalism and confidence of the sheriffs office shines. I have seen the level of accountability and respect that pervades the office. To those who criticize Sheriff Dawsy, get to know the facts. If you attend this class, you will see the people who serve us have nothing to hide. Then you, like me, will feel safer and prouder to be a citizen of Citrus County. Vicky Iozzia Crystal RiverCounty needs leadershipThe editorials havent been kind to our county commissioners lately, and rightfully so, in my opinion. There is only one Citrus County, and these people need to work toward a common mission. Leadership seems nonexistent. Stop bickering, have a beer, talk with each other, find common areas that we all can support. We deserve better behavior from all you leaders. The point is they only get together when required and could give a flip about each other instead of pooling talents, strengths and supporting commonalities and solving tough issues and intellectually looking to our future. Quit the petty political agendas and go to work.Harry B. Oates HomosassaTrue meaning of friendshipWe want to thank our neighbors, Bill and Gladys Young, and Beth Foxworthy, for being there for us in the most horrible time in our lives. We had to go to Connecticut for an undetermined amount of time so we could spend time with our son Garry, who was in the last stages of pancreatic cancer. Bill and Gladys were kind enough to drive us to the airport, and when we came back a month later, they were there to pick us up, and during the time we were gone, Bill made a daily morningtrip to care for our cat Dougie and Beth came in the evenings to make sure he was fed, had water and clean kitty litter. She also spent time with him during her visits. We cant thank them enough for this. That is what good friends and neighbors do. We suffered the loss of our son, but are forever grateful for these good friends, who made it possible for us to be away for a month and not have to worry about anything at home. God bless you, dear friends. Pete and Marie Lutsky Beverly Hills

with medical cannabis, she says. So she abandoned Paris for Seattle, where shes been developing recipes for marijuana-infused chocolate truffles for recreational and medical use. Her aim is to create a beautiful package like French chocolate or pastries for people like her daughter. They could ingest discreetly and enjoy life, rather than everything being in a pill, she says. If legal pot is the Green Rush, Daniel Curylo has some unique credentials: Hes been an actual prospector. He helped put himself through college working for a company that flew him into northern British Columbia and the Yukon with a map, a compass and a heavy backpack. Hed pan for gold and take soil samples. Another source of income in those days? Growing and selling marijuana with a few other political science majors. A former techie and ex-house flipper, Curylo, 41, says his background in business development and taking risks is perfect for the legal pot world. He has invested $400,000 so far. His goal? A cannabis business park northwest of Olympia that would feature his growing operation, Cascade Crops, as well as retail stores run by his mother, father and aunt. Angel Swanson was raised on the South Side of Chicago by a mother who warned: If you see drugs, run. Decades later, the businesswoman and real estate agent found herself in Washingtonstate with a husband, seven children and a strong bias against illegal drugs the poster child for anti-cannabis, she says. That is, until one of her daughters, who had serious digestive issues and had never weighed more than 100 pounds, came home from college one day and ate a full plate of food. The girl had tried potlaced cookies, which stimulated her appetite. Swanson lost it. Do you have any idea the sacrifices that have been made for you to go to college? she remembers saying. Swanson, 52, did some research and couldnt find a reason for her daughter not to use weed. She and her husband opened a medical marijuana dispensary, The Cannabis Emporium, near Tacoma. They now want to sell recreational pot, but hope to continue to serve patients a challenge, since stores will be barred from trumpeting pots therapeutic benefits. Todd Spaits and Bilye (sounds like Billy) Miller are more gym-and-yoga than smokeand-cough. The couple doesnt use pot I much prefer a glass of scotch, Spaits says but they say they know a good business opportunity when they see one. The pair previously worked in online marketing in San Diego, and Spaits has a masters in business administration. Their most recent startup is skyfu.com, which helps restaurants monitor what people are saying about them on social media. Spaits, 39, also helps judge business plan competitions and believes his skills are perfectly honed to run a successful pot store. He and Miller, 38, who has also worked as a bartender, are excited about Washingtons grand experiment. They sought advice from friends who operate medical dispensaries in California to help draw up a revenue model. Theyre seeking a retail license in Kirkland, east of Seattle. It started with small doses that eased the aches of restaurant work. But over time, Yevgeniy Eugene Frid found himself addicted to prescription painkillers. It completely envelops your whole life. He tried to quit many times, and when he finally did, he says, cannabis played a huge role displacing the opiates with a substance much gentler on the body. Frid, 28, quit his job doing business management and marketing for a video game company when a friend asked him to help start a medical marijuana dispensary. A Greener Today opened in Seattle in 2012 and now serves about 4,000 people. Frid says his most gratifying work is helping patients get off opiates the way he did, so he has mixed feelings about applying for a recreational retail license. The future of unregulated medical marijuana in Washington is dim many state officials see it as a threat to the heavily taxed recreational system. Some medical dispensary operators believe they have little choice but to convert to the recreational market. We dont know whats happening, Frid says. For a guy with a uniform and a gun, Steve Smith was unusually welcome at medical marijuana dispensaries. Of course, he was a security guard, not a federal drug agent. Smith, 29, had a background in food marketing. His father worked for a large grocery cooperative in California. He earned a degree in agriculture business management and started marketing organic and natural products for a food broker. He liked thinking he was helping people eat better. A friend who was working in security suggested Smith do the same. Looking to keep busy and make some extra money, he took his training and became a certified security guard. The company that hired him happened to assign him to a couple of medical marijuana dispensaries. You can only work as a guard for so long before you want to open your own shop, he says. He wants to apply to open two retail marijuana shops near Tacoma. Cecilia Sivertson worked for eight years as a paralegal in the prosecutors office for Washingtons most populous county. She helped make sure people paid child support and tracked down deadbeat dads. It was a rewarding, stressful and sometimes depressing job. After her husband died in a car accident in 2001, she decided she needed a more upbeat line of work and joined a labeling business. Sivertson, 55, has epilepsy and arthritis in her hands. About two years ago, she says, she noticed improvement in both when she started using marijuana. Last spring, she began making products infused with cannabis oil under her Nanas Secret line. Her specialty is pot-infused soda with the soda concentrate produced by a client of the labeling business. The Alabama native says shes applying to become a licensed marijuana processor so her sodas and other items can be sold in retail pot stores. Paul Schrag has a simple philosophy: He hopes to use his skills to do the most good in the world. For a while, that meant working in journalism, enticed by its power to shape public discourse. Before being laid off in 2009, he worked as a reporter for the Business Examiner, a biweekly publication in Tacoma. Nowadays, it means working in the pot industry. The 40-year-old says hes been growing marijuana since 1999 and uses it to treat lifelong neck pain. He began working at a medical marijuana collective, where part of his job entails coming up with a marketing and public education plan to help erase any stigma associated with cannabis use. He believes the medical and social benefits of the plant are only just starting to be understood. He plans to work as a growers vice president of marketing, research and development, and believes his knowledge of pot and business will help. Im one of those rare cats that get both, he says.

DEAR BRUCE: My wife and I are in our 80s. Our income, savings and investments provide a very nice living for us. We also own our home. We did, however, take a terrible loss back in 2008 (stocks), but have recovered most of that. My wife and I have individual checking accounts that equal approximately $150,000. I realize this is a terrible waste, but I feel the economy is going to crash again soon. Would you please advise me on how to invest this money wisely and still get a good rate of interest? Since we have paid off the mortgage on our home, this gives us another $600,000 to add to an investment. Your comments would be greatly appreciated. L.B., via email DEAR L.B.: You ask an impossible question! You ask how to invest money wisely and get a good rate of interest, but you are afraid there is going to be a crash and you cant afford to take the risk. These are totally incompatible positions. There are people who will tell you annuities can give you a decent return. In my opinion, there is nothing wise about that. But keeping $150,000 in a checking account is absolutely a tragedy. What I would do is sit down with one or two wise, carefully selected stock brokers, explain the situation and ask what they recommend. I am sure they are going to come up BUSINESSSection DSUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE BUSINESS BRIEFS Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY From wire reports T UES DA YWASHINGTON Commerce Department releases housing starts for September and October, 8:30 a.m.; Commerce Department releases third-quarter gross domestic product, 8:30 a.m.; Standard & Poors releases S&P/Case-Shiller index of home prices for September and the third quarter, 9 a.m.; The Conference Board releases the Consumer Confidence Index for November, 10 a.m. W EDNES DA YWASHINGTON Commerce Department releases durable goods for October, 8:30 a.m.; Commerce Department releases personal income and spending for October, 8:30 a.m. Dont bet your shirt on a great 2014 for stocks STEVEROTHWELL Associated PressNEW YORK Dont bet your shirt on a repeat performance. Thats the message from some of the nations biggest investment firms as the Dow Jones industrial average has closed above 16,000 for the first time and the Standard & Poors 500 index is on the cusp of its best year in a decade with a gain of 25.9 percent. Although investment professionals still are optimistic, investors shouldnt expect such outsized gains will be repeated. The S&P 500, the Dow and other stock indexes have risen steadily as the Federal Reserve has maintained its economic stimulus to keep longterm interest rates low, and the economy has continued to strengthen. Although economic growth hasnt been spectacular, it has been strong enough enable companies to keep increasing their earnings. We asked professionals at three big money managers, T. Rowe Price, Franklin Templeton and BlackRock for their thoughts on how the stock market will shape up next year. ON T HE OUT LOOK FOR STOCKS A double-digit gain is not out of the question. Many of the tail winds for the stock market are still in place, but they may start to weaken next year. Corporate earnings are strong, but profit margins could be peaking. Interest rates are still low compared to historical levels, but will likely rise gradually, particularly if the Fed starts to pull-back on its bond-buying stimulus program. However, the biggest challenge to the stock market is that valuations have risen so much this year, says Larry Puglia, portfolio manager of T. Oil slips, but stays higher for the week NEW YORK The price of oil slipped to just under $95 Friday but still finished the week with a gain of $1 a barrel. Benchmark U.S. crude for January delivery fell 60 cents to close at $94.84 in trading in New York. The weekly increase from $93.84 a week ago was largely due to an improving U.S. jobs picture, which would mean more drivers making the daily commute. Brent crude, an international benchmark used to price oil used in many U.S. refineries, rose 97 cents to $111.05 in London. Brent has risen 4 percent since Tuesday as nuclear talks with Iran have dragged on without a deal that could relieve sanctions that have kept a substantial amount of Iranian crude from world markets. Meanwhile, gasoline prices in the U.S. are in the midst of an unusual increase for this time of year. World stocks up as Dow heads for close LONDON World stocks mostly rose Friday as the Dow was set to close at another record high, but gains were kept in check by worries the Federal Reserve will cut its monetary stimulus soon. Asian and European markets were roiled this week by Fed minutes suggesting the U.S. central bank will start reducing its $85 billion of monthly bond purchases. In Europe, Frances CAC 40 rose 0.6 percent to close at 4,278.53 while Germanys DAX gained 0.3 percent to 9,219.04. Britains FTSE 100 edged down 0.1 percent to 6,674.30. In Asia, Japans Nikkei 225 stock average rose 0.1 percent to 15,381.72 and Hong Kongs Hang Seng added 0.5 percent to 23,696.28. Seouls Kospi gained 0.6 percent to 2,006.23. otal hiring increased 26,000 to 4.6 million, the highest level since August 2008. The gain suggests employers are not only posting more jobs but are also taking greater steps to fill them. Septembers total hiring is still below the roughly 5 million people who are typically hired in sturdier job markets. The number of people who quit their jobs in September dipped from August but was still about 15 percent higher than a year earlier. People usually quit their jobs when they have another one lined up, or when they are certain they can find one. More quits is a sign of confidence in the job market. The growth in hiring, job openings and quits points to more movement in the job market, which can create opportunities for those out of work or who are looking for another job. It also shows that competition for jobs is easing. There were 2.88 unemployed people, on average, for each available job in September. Thats the lowest since August 2008 and down from 7 to 1 in July 2009, just after the recession ended. In a healthy economy, the ratio is usually about 2 to 1. Unemployment is still high at 7.3 percent. But other reports suggest the job market is healing. Earlier this month, the governments October employment report said the economy added an average of 202,000 jobs a month from August through October. Thats up sharply from an average of 146,000 in May through July. Those figures reflect net payroll gains, which are the total number of people hired minus those who were laid off, quit or retired. The net gain can increase just because fewer workers are laid off, even if hiring is flat. Fridays report on job openings and turnover provides more details than the monthly employment report. It was encouraging because it shows those job gains are increasing because of more hiring. CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER Associated Press U.S. job openings and overall hiring both reached five-year highs in September, signaling steady improvement in the job market. Unemployment fell in 28 U.S. states last month, and employers added jobs in 34 states. The gains suggest recent improvements in the job market have occurred in most regions of the country. The biggest job gains occurred in Florida, California and North Carolina. Kentucky, Washington state, and New Jersey lost the most jobs. Job growth was unchanged in Pennsylvania. The unemployment rate nationally ticked up to 7.3 percent from 7.2 percent, in part because of the 16-day partial government shutdown. The shutdown caused temporary layoffs among government workers and some contractors. Florida gained 44,600 jobs. The biggest gains were in both better-paying and lower-paying fields. Most of the gains were in construction; hotels, restaurants and entertainment; and in the professional services category, which includes accountants, engineers, and temporary workers.

Rowe Prices Blue Chip Growth fund. That is to say, investors have been willing to pay more for a companys future earnings, pushing up prices. The priceearnings ratio for S&P 500 companies has risen to 15 from 12.5 at the start of this year, according to FactSet. We still find selected stocks attractive and think that the markets OK, but I would be surprised if the market....was able to duplicate the type of gains weve had this year, says Puglia. He still thinks stocks could rise as much as 10 percent. Conrad Hermann, a portfolio manager at Franklin Templeton says that statistics show that when the market logs an annual gain of 20 percent or more, it has been followed by another year of gains on two out three occasions -for an average gain of 11.5 percent the next year. ON THE BEST INDUSTRY TO INVEST IN Technology companies are the big favorite. The tech industry should benefit from rising spending in an improving global economy, says BlackRocks chief investment strategist Russ Koesterich. He also says that technology stocks are typically less sensitive to rising interest rates than other industry groups are. Many tech stocks dont pay a dividend, making them less sensitive to higher bond yields, and with strong new products they should grow profits. That suggests if interest rates climb, tech stocks should perform better than the overall market. Tech companies are also less richly priced than some other parts of the market, while still offering good growth prospects. Those in the S&P 500 are trading at 14.4 times their projected earnings over the next 12 months. That makes them less expensive than health care stocks, which are priced at 16.7 times expected earnings, and industrial companies, which are valued at 16.1 times earnings. ON A REDUCTION OF FED STIMULUS Investors have been obsessed with the Fed all year and the stock markets biggest setbacks have come when they thought that policymakers were poised to cut back on economic stimulus. The S&P 500 has dropped in only two months this year, June and August. In both months investors sold stocks on concern that the Fed was about to stop its stimulus. Instead, the central bank surprised investors in September by continuing its stimulus and now investors are getting more accustomed to the idea the Feds efforts must end at some point. Sure, there may be a knee-jerk reaction when the Fed acts, but it wont last. Ultimately investors will see the end of stimulus as a sign that the economy is continuing to improve. Fed policymakers have also stressed that the end of stimulus will not necessarily be immediately followed by higher interest rates. It will be a positive signal to the market that the economy can stand on its own two feet and doesnt need this super aggressive Federal Reserve action, says Puglia of T. Rowe Price. ON THE BIGGEST RISKS Unsurprisingly, the dysfunction in Washington is still at the forefront of investors minds. The 16-day partial government shutdown in October hurt consumer confidence and crimped economic growth. A repeat of that political wrangling next year would likely hurt the economy again. Stocks are also vulnerable to a sharp rise in interest rates. The markets rally from its lows in March 2009 has been underpinned by low interest rates which has made stock market returns more attractive. If bond yields were to rise suddenly the economy would suffer. The Feds policy is predicated on buying bonds to hold down interest rates. If investors get nervous as the central bank cuts its bond purchases, removing a support for the market, bond yields could jump as investors dump bonds. If interest rates were to (go) back up dramatically that would probably be a bad thing, says Franklin Templetons Hermann, who manages the Franklin Flex Cap Growth fund. Were still in a very fragile economy and we dont want to suddenly tilt into another recession.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 D3 000GCHX An educational/historical event presented by the Floral City Heritage Council.

The examination process measured Swansons clinical proficiency in surgical and prosthetic dental implant techniques, in-depth knowledge of dental implants, and commitment to excellence in implant dental practice and to the American Academy of Implant Dentistrys standards for ethics and patient welfare.Buethe joins Oak Hill HospitalSPRING HILL Oak Hill Hospital welcomes David D.

The fact that you took a hit in 2008 doesnt make you an orphan; lots of us did. Also, those who stayed in have recovered, as you have. In my case, I not only recovered what I lost, but made a substantial profit in the bargain. This is indicative of the fact that historically the marketplace has always recovered. The reality is you are not going to be around forever, and when you pass away, what difference will it make? I would sit back, make the investments as I described and live a good life. You obviously have earned it. DEAR BRUCE: I know a woman who is in the process of filing for bankruptcy. She has told me she chooses not to pay her mortgage (she has a secondary house). She is self-employed and wont work more hours to solve her financial problems. The big kicker is that she has traveled around the world this year. As a responsible, hardworking mom, I suspect that she is playing the system. Irritated, via email DEAR IRRITATED: I can understand why you are irritated. Youre being responsible, and you wonder if she is playing the system. Of course she is! She is filing for bankruptcy, which means she is not paying her bills, yet she is running around the world, spending money she should be using to retire her obligations. Whether or not she will be approved for bankruptcy because she has two homes may be a problem, but what else is there to be said? This is an irresponsible person who is looking out for herself and not meeting her responsibilities. If that becomes obvious, then she will be denied bankruptcy protection. DEAR BRUCE: My husband, who is 60 years old, is looking to retire in two years. I retired five years ago. We have saved our whole lives and have a credit score of 849. Our daughter, who is going through a divorce, has some money problems. Her vehicle needs to be replaced, and she will not qualify for a car loan on her own. We would like to co-sign on a car loan with her to help her out. Can we do this without compromising our credit rating and still be OK when my husband retires? Is there anything we should do to cover ourselves? M.B., via email DEAR M.B.: I dont have any problem with what you want to do, assuming you feel that you can afford the money. There is nothing I can see that will compromise your credit rating. The only thing is, if your daughter doesnt make the payments, you are stuck with paying the balance of the loan. You ask if theres a way to cover yourselves. Unfortunately, thats not possible. Your daughter apparently has severe financial problems, and nobody wants to loan her money. Youre as good as gold and can easily get a loan, but you must understand that if she doesnt make the payments, you are directly on the hook. If you dont make the payments, then your credit rating will be compromised. DEAR BRUCE: I am a 61-yearold retired construction worker. I have approximately $135,000 in my union benefit annuity. I should do a roll-over, but Im not sure where I should re-invest. We have an adequate retirement, so we would like to place it in a very safe account. It takes six weeks to get the money out of the account, so if something drastic was to happen and the market was to go down, my account would suffer substantially. This is why I want to move the account. The account is evaluated on the day of withdrawal. W.D., via email DEAR W.D.: Your question asks for something that is absolutely not available unless you are prepared to give up all the interest the money could earn, and I think that would be a tragedy. If you want a very safe account, you will limit yourself to things such as CDs and certain savings accounts. I understand you are concerned about the money not being available for six weeks, and if the market went down, you would suffer substantially. This is a possibility, but very unlikely. If safety remains your No. 1 concern, take the money and put it into something like a five-year CD at your local bank. You realize that you are going to earn very little money and you will also be penalized by the tax man. You might also wish to consider tax-free municipal bonds. There have been substantial failures in municipalities around the country Detroit is the classic example and as a consequence, there is a certain degree of risk. But there are solid communities with little possibility of going under. You might want to consider their bonds because of the tax-free provision. It all comes back to this business of you not wanting to take any risk. I dont think at 61 years old you should be writing off the idea of taking some risk to earn a decent return on your money.

MONEYContinued from Page D1 Lawmakers urge bidding for gates in airline merger DAVIDKOENIG Associated PressDALLAS Four key members of Congress say that all airlines not just low-fare carriers should be able to bid on gates and landing rights that American Airlines and US Airways will give up after their merger. The leaders of the House and Senate transportation committees say theyre worried that unless the big airlines can bid, service between Washington and some smaller cities may be lost. The U.S. Justice Department settled a lawsuit challenging the merger earlier this month after American and US Airways agreed to give up gates and landing rights at several big airports, notably Washingtons Reagan National Airport. Officials said those assets would go to low-cost airlines because the big, socalled legacy airlines the biggest being United and Delta had stifled competition. On Friday, top Democrats and Republicans on the transportation committees released a letter that they sent to Attorney General Eric Holder urging that bidding be open to all airlines. They said that low-cost carriers dont generally fly to smaller cities, so freezing out the big airlines wont help consumers in those places. The settlement was widely viewed as likely to benefit Southwest Airlines and JetBlue Airways, two self-avowed low-cost carriers that have indicated interest in getting some of the American and US Airways landing rights at Reagan National. However, Delta had also expressed interest in picking up landing rights at Reagan National and two gates that American agreed to surrender at Dallas Love Field. We do believe that all airlines should have an opportunity to bid on the divested assets, Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter said Friday.

Mulch is raw, undecomposed organic matter. Unlike compost, mulch is generally not mixed into the soil, he noted, but is applied 2 to 4 inches deep on top of the soil around a tree or shrub. Mulch has fewer nutrients and is not meant to replace fertilizer, which should be added as a supplement. Mulching does, however, maintain soil moisture, prevent most weed seeds from germinating and keep soil temperatures constant around plants, said Martha Smith, an extension horticulturist with the University of Illinois. Which kind of mulch you choose depends on what youre growing and where. Some mulch, especially crushed rock and commercially made, color-enhanced mixtures, can beautify pathways, driveways and play areas. Good mulch is easy to apply and remove; is free of noxious weeds, insects and disease; and adds organic materials to the soil as it breaks down. There are different byproducts used across the U.S. based on local supply, Smith said. That includes pine needles in the South, hazelnut shells in the Northwest and buckwheat hulls in the Southeast. Some different mulch materials from which to choose:Shredded bark, wood chips and shavings. Easy to spread and long-lasting, but can rob the soil of nitrogen and make landscape plants turn yellow. Look for arborist chips or ground-up tree branches that can make a good mulch and often are available for the asking from tree trimmers.Gravel and stones. Stone doesnt have to be replaced like organic mulches, but it is expensive and will work into the ground. Stone is great for problem areas, though, like deep shade or in channels cut for stormwater runoff.Black plastic and straw. Both are commonly used in vegetable gardens and orchards. Plastics, however, prevent water from entering the soil, while straw contains grain seeds that can germinate.Leaves. Shredded leaves provide good insulation and weed control, although they wont allow much water to penetrate. Work them into the soil after they decompose.Others include newspapers (unattractive unless shredded), peat moss (inexpensive but acidic), shredded rubber (doesnt decompose but may smell) and landscape cloth (allows water to infiltrate but must be tacked down). Some materials to avoid:Grass clippings, especially any containing herbicides. Clippings are better left on lawns where they break down quickly and return some nutrients to the soil.Treated wood chips, charcoal and ash especially barbeque briquettes and coal ash may include compounds and chemicals harmful to pets and plants.Sawdust packs tightly and is unsightly.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013E13 E4SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000GPOX Cell: 422-4620 Office: 382-1700 REALTY, INC.

Homeowners plant them in their yards. I am fortunate to enjoy a heavily wooded lot with many naturally occurring as well as planted trees. Trees provide many intangible values shade, aesthetics, habitat for birds, squirrels and other wildlife, wind and sound attenuation, prevention of soil erosion, fruit production and carbon sequestration. These are all important benefits which enhance our quality of life. However, trees also have a tangible value they can be appraised to determine their monetary value. Why would someone need a tree appraised for dollar value? There are many reasons, and they include damage or loss of a tree or trees due to a lightning strike, vehicular damage, deliberate or inadvertent removal of a tree by a neighbor or tree service, removal of trees due to eminent domain, an IRS casualty loss, establishing an IRS basis and other reasons. As a tree appraiser, I have been involved in appraising trees for all of those reasons. Casualty losses involve a sudden and unexpected loss of trees and are somewhat narrowly defined by the IRS. The IRS defines a casualty loss as follows: a casualty loss can result from the damage, destruction or loss of your property from any sudden, unexpected or unusual event such as a flood, hurricane, tornado, fire, earthquake or even volcanic eruption. A casualty does not include normal wear and Matchstick jewelry box an example of prisoner handcrafts Dear John: This jewelry box is made entirely of burnt matches and came off a boat from Devils Island, French Guiana, sometime around 1946. It was possibly made by one of the prisoners there. It is very wellcrafted. Could you give me an idea what the value of this piece might be? M.E., InternetDear M.E.: Decorative handmade prisoner of war artifacts have been of interest in the antiques marketplace for a long time. Most collectors focus on the Napoleonic Wars era, where the highest prices are paid. Most of the wood boxes made by those prisoners were of straw, and very ornate. Collectors refer to them as Prisoner of War Straw Work. It is likely your box made of matchsticks was done by a prisoner, as you suspect. Potential dollar value is $75 to $150. Dear John: I am attaching a picture of a painting and another showing the artists name DeFaenza. The closest I was able to find was Antonio Gentili Da Faenza It was given to my mother by her brother in the 1970s and it came in to my possession after the passing of my parents. It appears to be an oil on canvas and is 49 inches wide by 25 inches tall. Admittedly, my Internet search skills are not the best. I hope you can find additional information about the artist and the painting, as well as what the value might be. Thank you for your help.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressThe dreaded mulch volcano, when shredded bark is piled high against the trunk of a tree. Too much mulch mounded against a tree eventually will rot the bark, deprive the roots of oxygen, attract insects and reduce the soils ability to dry. Instead, mulch should be spread two to four inches deep in a ring around the tree, leaving some space open near the base for water to penetrate and the tree to breathe. DEANFOSDICK Associated PressCompost or mulch? People often confuse the two, although each fulfills a different function in gardening. Which one you want depends on your needs. Compost is used to feed crops; mulch is used to suppress weeds, said Daniel McGrath, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension. Compost is decomposed organic matter that is generally higher in nutrients and relatively low in carbon compared to mulch. the artist name DeFaenza. The landscape picture is typical of the 19th century. However, I think your painting was produced in Europe in the 20th century and likely in the 1970s. The frame also appears to be of the same 1970s-vintage, not from the 19th century. Potential dollar value is catchas-catch-can.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The $13 billion settlement that JPMorgan Chase agreed to Tuesday is the largest ever between the Justice Department and a corporation. Yet it isnt likely the end of the banks legal troubles over the risky mortgage securities it sold before the financial crisis. JPMorgan has several lawsuits pending against it and the mortgage businesses it bought from Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual in 2008. Theres also an ongoing criminal investigation led by the office of U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner in Sacramento, Calif. The bank may be negotiating or litigating for years and has set aside $23 billion to cover those costs. Last month, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it said it may need up to $5.7 billion more. The deal also included settlements with New York, California and other states. It was reached after months of negotiations and could serve as a template for similar settlements with other big banks. As part of the deal, JPMorgan agreed to provide $4 billion in relief to homeowners affected by the bad loans. JPMorgan was among the major banks that sold securities that plunged in value when the housing market collapsed in 2006 and 2007. tear or progressive deterioration. The amount of the loss is the lesser of the adjusted basis of your property or the decrease in the fair market value of your property. The IRS defines the basis as your cost, increased or decreased by certain events such as improvements or depreciation. Generally a basis is established when you take possession of a property through purchase or inheritance. To determine the value of trees and landscape plants which suffered a casualty loss, a real estate appraiser would need to work with the tree and plant appraiser to determine the loss in fair market value. Casualty losses for individuals are difficult to claim, as the casualty loss must exceed 10 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI) as reported on your recent IRS tax return. This is found on Line 37 of your 1040 form and reflects your income before itemized deductions. Therefore, if your AGI is $50,000, your casualty loss would have to exceed $5,000 to even be able to file a claim for a loss. Business casualty losses are less restrictive and do not require the loss to exceed 10 percent AGI. A good example of a business casualty loss would be a commercial timber stand destroyed by a wildfire. If the timber stand can be determined to be a business enterprise, a casualty loss can be filed. Another example would be a place of business where the trees were lost due to a hurricane or tornado. A tax specialist should be consulted prior to attempting to file such a claim. Another situation involving the IRS can be to appraise trees, usually timber, when a property changes hands due to purchase or inheritance. The new owner may want to establish a new basis for his/her trees or timber and keep it separate from the land and/or building value of the property. Most people do not do this when purchasing or inheriting land, and it can prove to be a worthwhile endeavor later when the property is resold or damaged due to a casualty as explained above. A more common situation for homeowners is to file a claim for loss of trees with an insurance company. Most homeowners insurance policies have some language regarding coverage for the loss of trees due to such things as lightning strikes or damage from a vehicle hitting a tree. Often, there is a limit of $500 per tree; policies vary, and your insurance agent should be consulted in such a situation. Eminent domain is another situation where trees can be appraised for compensation. A homeowner or a place of business may have some valuable trees which will be removed due to a highway expansion or other improvements. These trees can be appraised and made a part of the real estate appraisal to determine the fair market value of the condemned property. So how does one go about determining the monetary value of trees? In general, trees are appraised based on their use. Trees in a residential or urban situation would be appraised based on their replacement cost from a nursery. If the trees are small enough to be readily replaced, an appraiser can use prices from local nurseries to determine the replacement value based on size. However, the final appraised value is depreciated from the actual replacement cost based on the condition of the tree being replaced, as well as other factors such as location and species. Determining the value of trees larger than replacement size is more complex and is based on a per square inch value of the cross-sectional area of the trunk. This is known as the basic value, which is further depreciated by the condition, location, and species of the tree. Very large trees can have considerable value; a large diameter, healthy tree in good condition and a good location may be worth tens of thousands of dollars. Trees in a rural or forested setting may be appraised from a timber value standpoint. Timber is purchased by weight (tons) and different species and sizes are used for different forest products such as mulch, poles, sawtimber, etc. Determining the value of a timber stand involves performing a cruise or inventory of the standing timber, determining the volume of the standing timber by each of the various timber products for that region, determining the market value of the timber based on recent comparable timber sales in the area, and then assigning the market values for each product to the timber found on the subject property to determine the total timber value. Such appraisals require a good deal fieldwork and market analysis to produce an accurate timber value. Sometime timber appraisals are free-standing and used when selling timber on the market; other times, they are provided to a real estate appraiser who wraps the timber value into the total value of the real estate. Should you need your trees or timber appraised, be sure to consult your insurance company or tax specialist first to determine if an appraisal is worthwhile and beneficial. If you hire a tree appraiser, be sure to determine his or her credentials and experience. Tree appraisal is a specialty, and many arborists do not have the experience or understanding to do it properly.Eric H. Hoyer is a certified arborist, a certified forester, a registered consulting arborist and a qualified tree risk assessor with Natural Resource Planning Services Inc. He can be contacted at erich@ nrpsforesters.com. On a recent trip to seven of the Hawaiian Islands, I recognized most of the gorgeous exotic flowers planted in abundance in home gardens, hotel landscapes, parking lots and roadsides. Some have escaped and naturalized in fields, forests and even in the national parks I visited. These plants were the same species as are grown in subtropical south Florida, where there is no possibility of frosty winter mornings. Ginger, Plumaria, Plumbago, Lantana, Bouganvilla, Hydrangea, Amaryllis, and the large brightly colored Hawaiian Hibiscus attracted my attention. There are about 220 species of Hibiscus. Most are tropical, evergreen shrubs suitable for south Floridas warmer zones 10 and 11. There are a few deciduous species frost-hardy enough for use in temperate-zone gardens in central Florida and the Southeastern states in zones 5 and 9. Expect temperate Rose of Sharon, Hibiscus syriacus, originally from Syria and the Middle East, to be leafless and dormant from mid-November through winter until March.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013E11 E6SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE B ILL D ECKER 352-464-0647 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000GP6L Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

bother with fancy appetizers. As Sharkey points out, guests wont remember the homemade potato chips you slaved over; theyll remember the stressed-out you. Serve simple things on interesting plates or in silver bowls, and it all looks special. For example, West Elm has Shanna Murrays gold-penned bisque stoneware salad plates. (www.westelm.com) Instead of a complicated bar, come up with one fun drink to serve as a showpiece, then add a few bottles of wine and sparkling water. If youre doing a casual Thanksgiving meal or a lunch, consider setting out an interesting variety of craft beers, as well as vegetable juices and iced tea for the non-drinkers. Better Homes and Gardens has suggestions for make-ahead nibblers such as mini gruyere puffs that can be made a month ahead and frozen, or mini meatballs in a tangy apricot sauce that can be rewarmed in a slow cooker during cocktail hour. (www.bhg.com) At Realsimple.com, youll find lots of makeahead appetizers, salads, sides, breads and desserts for Thanksgiving. If you do plan to host on Thanksgiving day, keep the menu simple. No one wants 14 different things. And dont be ashamed to get certain things from a store, or to ask people to bring something, Sharkey says. Oma Ford, executive editor at Better Homes & Gardens magazine, says shes not usually a potluck fan but its actually a wonderful way to approach the Thanksgiving feast. We often spend the holiday with friends who usually make the turkey and desserts and then ask all their guests to bring a side dish they couldnt live without. ... The sides are really the fun, interesting part of the meal, and with this approach none of the guests feels like they missed out on a favorite or traditional element of the feast. Does a friend make awesome mashed potatoes? Is a relative the pie person? Do you have a nearby market that makes yummy stuffing? Ask, order and lessen your workload. For delectable treats you can pre-order, check out Williams-Sonomas desserts from various specialists, including Platine Bakery and Taurit Or. (www.williams-sonoma. com) Serving everything buffet style takes another fussy component off the table, so to speak. Make sure there are comfortable places for everyone to perch with their plates, but put all the food and drinks in central locations. A multiple-pot slow cooker can hold stews, soups and savory vegetables. Serve-yourself beverage dispensers allow guests to refill at will. (www.kohls.com) Pier 1 has ceramic, wipe-off-marker menu boards and dish labels that can be used again and again. (www.pier1.com) Have lots of napkins placed around the party; guests appreciate not having to hunt for one. If youre using candlelight, consider flameless pillars that can be turned on and forgotten without worrying. Pottery Barns Rustic Luxe stonewashed linens have a casual yet quality vibe. Faux antler candelabras, wood and stone drink coasters, and limestone, hand-punched gourd luminaries all add tone and texture to dcor, without the fussiness. (www.potterybarn.com) Ford suggests drawing up a game plan for entertaining, and tackling as much as possible ahead of time. Set the table the day before, or the week before if you dont use your dining room all the time. Collect serving dishes for all the food youre making, and mark each with a slip of paper so you know where to put the green beans without having to think about it. Pottery Barns Design Studio blog offers a playby-play for a successful Thanksgiving dinner; there are menus, dcor options and a loose timetable on the website, www. potterybarn.com. Florida boasts three native Hibiscus: red-flowered Scarlet Hibiscus, Hibuscus coccineus,zone 8-11; pinkflowered Swamp Hibiscus,H. grandiflorusand Rose Mallow, H. moscheutos,creamy white-flowered with dark centers. Sea Hibiscus, or Mahoe, H. tiliaceus,a category 2 alien invasive from Asia, is a pest plant in south Florida as far north as Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. The large-flowered, brightly-colored tropical Hibiscus, H. rosa-sinensis,is thought to have originated in India and Southern Asia. The Chinese have been cultivating these showy flowers and creating hybrids for centuries. In Hawaii they are considered canoe plants introduced by the original Polynesian voyagersettlers. Modern hybrids sold in big box nurseries may be labeled Hawaiian hybrids. Leaves are thin and glossy green, with teeth along the margins or edges. Flower colors range from white, pink, red and orange to yellow, often with a darker or contrasting center. Single blossoms have five overlapping petals, joined at the base into a funnel-shaped tube. Double and semi-double varieties have been developed. Buds open soon after daybreak. The flowers are exceptionally large, but only last one day, whether on the bush or picked. Each morning new flowers open. In central Florida, flowering season is from May to October. In frost-free south Florida, hybrid Hibiscus may flower year-round. In an average year, Citrus County will get frost from November through to March. Protected microclimates near bodies of water the Gulf, rivers and lakes may escape cold snaps. Zone 9a usually has 10 or more frosty mornings and perhaps a hard freeze or two each winter. Hybrid Hibiscus leaves and stems will be killed to the ground if frozen. Cover the roots several feet out from the base with a thick layer of pine needles to trap warmth from the ground and prevent cold air from reaching them. Dead, frozen parts may be cut off immediately. Hibiscus needs a fullsun, protected location, like the south side of a building. Soil should be well-drained, moist to wet and humus-rich. Generally pestand disease-free, they can survive on natural rainfall and do not require fertilization. Tip prune young plants and new shoots in spring to promote bushiness. Hybrids do not set seeds, so need no deadheading. Old and woody plants may need pruning to control height and spread. Rejuvenation pruning involves sawing out the thickest stalks and lopping the rest in half while dormant in early spring locally. Easy-to-grow hybrid Hawaiian Hibiscus brings a tropical feeling to central Florida gardens.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Some expert advice and helpful products can make Thanksgiving entertaining more stylish, fun and fret-free. Kevin Sharkey, executive creative director at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, begins with a why-didnt-I-think-of-that idea: If you have performance anxiety about the day, what if you (threw the party) the night before or after? Sometimes I think the only reason to have Thanksgiving is to have sandwiches the next day. So have a great lunch or cocktail party instead, he suggests. Guests are just looking for a convivial atmosphere, so dont KIMCOOK ASSOCIATEDPRESSPreparing a Thanksgiving feast ranks high on the entertaining stress-o-meter.

bother with fancy appetizers. As Sharkey points out, guests wont remember the homemade potato chips you slaved over; theyll remember the stressed-out you. Serve simple things on interesting plates or in silver bowls, and it all looks special. For example, West Elm has Shanna Murrays gold-penned bisque stoneware salad plates. (www.westelm.com) Instead of a complicated bar, come up with one fun drink to serve as a showpiece, then add a few bottles of wine and sparkling water. If youre doing a casual Thanksgiving meal or a lunch, consider setting out an interesting variety of craft beers, as well as vegetable juices and iced tea for the non-drinkers. Better Homes and Gardens has suggestions for make-ahead nibblers such as mini gruyere puffs that can be made a month ahead and frozen, or mini meatballs in a tangy apricot sauce that can be rewarmed in a slow cooker during cocktail hour. (www.bhg.com) At Realsimple.com, youll find lots of makeahead appetizers, salads, sides, breads and desserts for Thanksgiving. If you do plan to host on Thanksgiving day, keep the menu simple. No one wants 14 different things. And dont be ashamed to get certain things from a store, or to ask people to bring something, Sharkey says. Oma Ford, executive editor at Better Homes & Gardens magazine, says shes not usually a potluck fan but its actually a wonderful way to approach the Thanksgiving feast. We often spend the holiday with friends who usually make the turkey and desserts and then ask all their guests to bring a side dish they couldnt live without. ... The sides are really the fun, interesting part of the meal, and with this approach none of the guests feels like they missed out on a favorite or traditional element of the feast. Does a friend make awesome mashed potatoes? Is a relative the pie person? Do you have a nearby market that makes yummy stuffing? Ask, order and lessen your workload. For delectable treats you can pre-order, check out Williams-Sonomas desserts from various specialists, including Platine Bakery and Taurit Or. (www.williams-sonoma. com) Serving everything buffet style takes another fussy component off the table, so to speak. Make sure there are comfortable places for everyone to perch with their plates, but put all the food and drinks in central locations. A multiple-pot slow cooker can hold stews, soups and savory vegetables. Serve-yourself beverage dispensers allow guests to refill at will. (www.kohls.com) Pier 1 has ceramic, wipe-off-marker menu boards and dish labels that can be used again and again. (www.pier1.com) Have lots of napkins placed around the party; guests appreciate not having to hunt for one. If youre using candlelight, consider flameless pillars that can be turned on and forgotten without worrying. Pottery Barns Rustic Luxe stonewashed linens have a casual yet quality vibe. Faux antler candelabras, wood and stone drink coasters, and limestone, hand-punched gourd luminaries all add tone and texture to dcor, without the fussiness. (www.potterybarn.com) Ford suggests drawing up a game plan for entertaining, and tackling as much as possible ahead of time. Set the table the day before, or the week before if you dont use your dining room all the time. Collect serving dishes for all the food youre making, and mark each with a slip of paper so you know where to put the green beans without having to think about it. Pottery Barns Design Studio blog offers a playby-play for a successful Thanksgiving dinner; there are menus, dcor options and a loose timetable on the website, www. potterybarn.com. Florida boasts three native Hibiscus: red-flowered Scarlet Hibiscus, Hibuscus coccineus,zone 8-11; pinkflowered Swamp Hibiscus,H. grandiflorusand Rose Mallow, H. moscheutos,creamy white-flowered with dark centers. Sea Hibiscus, or Mahoe, H. tiliaceus,a category 2 alien invasive from Asia, is a pest plant in south Florida as far north as Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. The large-flowered, brightly-colored tropical Hibiscus, H. rosa-sinensis,is thought to have originated in India and Southern Asia. The Chinese have been cultivating these showy flowers and creating hybrids for centuries. In Hawaii they are considered canoe plants introduced by the original Polynesian voyagersettlers. Modern hybrids sold in big box nurseries may be labeled Hawaiian hybrids. Leaves are thin and glossy green, with teeth along the margins or edges. Flower colors range from white, pink, red and orange to yellow, often with a darker or contrasting center. Single blossoms have five overlapping petals, joined at the base into a funnel-shaped tube. Double and semi-double varieties have been developed. Buds open soon after daybreak. The flowers are exceptionally large, but only last one day, whether on the bush or picked. Each morning new flowers open. In central Florida, flowering season is from May to October. In frost-free south Florida, hybrid Hibiscus may flower year-round. In an average year, Citrus County will get frost from November through to March. Protected microclimates near bodies of water the Gulf, rivers and lakes may escape cold snaps. Zone 9a usually has 10 or more frosty mornings and perhaps a hard freeze or two each winter. Hybrid Hibiscus leaves and stems will be killed to the ground if frozen. Cover the roots several feet out from the base with a thick layer of pine needles to trap warmth from the ground and prevent cold air from reaching them. Dead, frozen parts may be cut off immediately. Hibiscus needs a fullsun, protected location, like the south side of a building. Soil should be well-drained, moist to wet and humus-rich. Generally pestand disease-free, they can survive on natural rainfall and do not require fertilization. Tip prune young plants and new shoots in spring to promote bushiness. Hybrids do not set seeds, so need no deadheading. Old and woody plants may need pruning to control height and spread. Rejuvenation pruning involves sawing out the thickest stalks and lopping the rest in half while dormant in early spring locally. Easy-to-grow hybrid Hawaiian Hibiscus brings a tropical feeling to central Florida gardens.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The $13 billion settlement that JPMorgan Chase agreed to Tuesday is the largest ever between the Justice Department and a corporation. Yet it isnt likely the end of the banks legal troubles over the risky mortgage securities it sold before the financial crisis. JPMorgan has several lawsuits pending against it and the mortgage businesses it bought from Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual in 2008. Theres also an ongoing criminal investigation led by the office of U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner in Sacramento, Calif. The bank may be negotiating or litigating for years and has set aside $23 billion to cover those costs. Last month, in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, it said it may need up to $5.7 billion more. The deal also included settlements with New York, California and other states. It was reached after months of negotiations and could serve as a template for similar settlements with other big banks. As part of the deal, JPMorgan agreed to provide $4 billion in relief to homeowners affected by the bad loans. JPMorgan was among the major banks that sold securities that plunged in value when the housing market collapsed in 2006 and 2007. tear or progressive deterioration. The amount of the loss is the lesser of the adjusted basis of your property or the decrease in the fair market value of your property. The IRS defines the basis as your cost, increased or decreased by certain events such as improvements or depreciation. Generally a basis is established when you take possession of a property through purchase or inheritance. To determine the value of trees and landscape plants which suffered a casualty loss, a real estate appraiser would need to work with the tree and plant appraiser to determine the loss in fair market value. Casualty losses for individuals are difficult to claim, as the casualty loss must exceed 10 percent of your adjusted gross income (AGI) as reported on your recent IRS tax return. This is found on Line 37 of your 1040 form and reflects your income before itemized deductions. Therefore, if your AGI is $50,000, your casualty loss would have to exceed $5,000 to even be able to file a claim for a loss. Business casualty losses are less restrictive and do not require the loss to exceed 10 percent AGI. A good example of a business casualty loss would be a commercial timber stand destroyed by a wildfire. If the timber stand can be determined to be a business enterprise, a casualty loss can be filed. Another example would be a place of business where the trees were lost due to a hurricane or tornado. A tax specialist should be consulted prior to attempting to file such a claim. Another situation involving the IRS can be to appraise trees, usually timber, when a property changes hands due to purchase or inheritance. The new owner may want to establish a new basis for his/her trees or timber and keep it separate from the land and/or building value of the property. Most people do not do this when purchasing or inheriting land, and it can prove to be a worthwhile endeavor later when the property is resold or damaged due to a casualty as explained above. A more common situation for homeowners is to file a claim for loss of trees with an insurance company. Most homeowners insurance policies have some language regarding coverage for the loss of trees due to such things as lightning strikes or damage from a vehicle hitting a tree. Often, there is a limit of $500 per tree; policies vary, and your insurance agent should be consulted in such a situation. Eminent domain is another situation where trees can be appraised for compensation. A homeowner or a place of business may have some valuable trees which will be removed due to a highway expansion or other improvements. These trees can be appraised and made a part of the real estate appraisal to determine the fair market value of the condemned property. So how does one go about determining the monetary value of trees? In general, trees are appraised based on their use. Trees in a residential or urban situation would be appraised based on their replacement cost from a nursery. If the trees are small enough to be readily replaced, an appraiser can use prices from local nurseries to determine the replacement value based on size. However, the final appraised value is depreciated from the actual replacement cost based on the condition of the tree being replaced, as well as other factors such as location and species. Determining the value of trees larger than replacement size is more complex and is based on a per square inch value of the cross-sectional area of the trunk. This is known as the basic value, which is further depreciated by the condition, location, and species of the tree. Very large trees can have considerable value; a large diameter, healthy tree in good condition and a good location may be worth tens of thousands of dollars. Trees in a rural or forested setting may be appraised from a timber value standpoint. Timber is purchased by weight (tons) and different species and sizes are used for different forest products such as mulch, poles, sawtimber, etc. Determining the value of a timber stand involves performing a cruise or inventory of the standing timber, determining the volume of the standing timber by each of the various timber products for that region, determining the market value of the timber based on recent comparable timber sales in the area, and then assigning the market values for each product to the timber found on the subject property to determine the total timber value. Such appraisals require a good deal fieldwork and market analysis to produce an accurate timber value. Sometime timber appraisals are free-standing and used when selling timber on the market; other times, they are provided to a real estate appraiser who wraps the timber value into the total value of the real estate. Should you need your trees or timber appraised, be sure to consult your insurance company or tax specialist first to determine if an appraisal is worthwhile and beneficial. If you hire a tree appraiser, be sure to determine his or her credentials and experience. Tree appraisal is a specialty, and many arborists do not have the experience or understanding to do it properly.Eric H. Hoyer is a certified arborist, a certified forester, a registered consulting arborist and a qualified tree risk assessor with Natural Resource Planning Services Inc. He can be contacted at erich@ nrpsforesters.com. On a recent trip to seven of the Hawaiian Islands, I recognized most of the gorgeous exotic flowers planted in abundance in home gardens, hotel landscapes, parking lots and roadsides. Some have escaped and naturalized in fields, forests and even in the national parks I visited. These plants were the same species as are grown in subtropical south Florida, where there is no possibility of frosty winter mornings. Ginger, Plumaria, Plumbago, Lantana, Bouganvilla, Hydrangea, Amaryllis, and the large brightly colored Hawaiian Hibiscus attracted my attention. There are about 220 species of Hibiscus.

DEAN FOSDICK/Associated PressThe dreaded mulch volcano, when shredded bark is piled high against the trunk of a tree. Too much mulch mounded against a tree eventually will rot the bark, deprive the roots of oxygen, attract insects and reduce the soils ability to dry. Instead, mulch should be spread two to four inches deep in a ring around the tree, leaving some space open near the base for water to penetrate and the tree to breathe. DEANFOSDICK Associated PressCompost or mulch? People often confuse the two, although each fulfills a different function in gardening. Which one you want depends on your needs. Compost is used to feed crops; mulch is used to suppress weeds, said Daniel McGrath, a horticulturist with Oregon State University Extension. Compost is decomposed organic matter that is generally higher in nutrients and relatively low in carbon compared to mulch. the artist name DeFaenza. The landscape picture is typical of the 19th century. However, I think your painting was produced in Europe in the 20th century and likely in the 1970s. The frame also appears to be of the same 1970s-vintage, not from the 19th century. Potential dollar value is catchas-catch-can.

Make the right choice with mulch Gardeners advised to weigh different factors See MULCH / Page E13

PAGE 53

Mulch is raw, undecomposed organic matter. Unlike compost, mulch is generally not mixed into the soil, he noted, but is applied 2 to 4 inches deep on top of the soil around a tree or shrub. Mulch has fewer nutrients and is not meant to replace fertilizer, which should be added as a supplement. Mulching does, however, maintain soil moisture, prevent most weed seeds from germinating and keep soil temperatures constant around plants, said Martha Smith, an extension horticulturist with the University of Illinois. Which kind of mulch you choose depends on what youre growing and where. Some mulch, especially crushed rock and commercially made, color-enhanced mixtures, can beautify pathways, driveways and play areas. Good mulch is easy to apply and remove; is free of noxious weeds, insects and disease; and adds organic materials to the soil as it breaks down. There are different byproducts used across the U.S. based on local supply, Smith said. That includes pine needles in the South, hazelnut shells in the Northwest and buckwheat hulls in the Southeast. Some different mulch materials from which to choose:Shredded bark, wood chips and shavings. Easy to spread and long-lasting, but can rob the soil of nitrogen and make landscape plants turn yellow. Look for arborist chips or ground-up tree branches that can make a good mulch and often are available for the asking from tree trimmers.Gravel and stones. Stone doesnt have to be replaced like organic mulches, but it is expensive and will work into the ground. Stone is great for problem areas, though, like deep shade or in channels cut for stormwater runoff.Black plastic and straw. Both are commonly used in vegetable gardens and orchards. Plastics, however, prevent water from entering the soil, while straw contains grain seeds that can germinate.Leaves. Shredded leaves provide good insulation and weed control, although they wont allow much water to penetrate. Work them into the soil after they decompose.Others include newspapers (unattractive unless shredded), peat moss (inexpensive but acidic), shredded rubber (doesnt decompose but may smell) and landscape cloth (allows water to infiltrate but must be tacked down). Some materials to avoid:Grass clippings, especially any containing herbicides. Clippings are better left on lawns where they break down quickly and return some nutrients to the soil.Treated wood chips, charcoal and ash especially barbeque briquettes and coal ash may include compounds and chemicals harmful to pets and plants.Sawdust packs tightly and is unsightly.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013E13 E4SUNDAY, NOVEMBER24, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000GPOX Cell: 422-4620 Office: 382-1700 REALTY, INC.

Homeowners plant them in their yards. I am fortunate to enjoy a heavily wooded lot with many naturally occurring as well as planted trees. Trees provide many intangible values shade, aesthetics, habitat for birds, squirrels and other wildlife, wind and sound attenuation, prevention of soil erosion, fruit production and carbon sequestration. These are all important benefits which enhance our quality of life. However, trees also have a tangible value they can be appraised to determine their monetary value. Why would someone need a tree appraised for dollar value? There are many reasons, and they include damage or loss of a tree or trees due to a lightning strike, vehicular damage, deliberate or inadvertent removal of a tree by a neighbor or tree service, removal of trees due to eminent domain, an IRS casualty loss, establishing an IRS basis and other reasons. As a tree appraiser, I have been involved in appraising trees for all of those reasons. Casualty losses involve a sudden and unexpected loss of trees and are somewhat narrowly defined by the IRS. The IRS defines a casualty loss as follows: a casualty loss can result from the damage, destruction or loss of your property from any sudden, unexpected or unusual event such as a flood, hurricane, tornado, fire, earthquake or even volcanic eruption. A casualty does not include normal wear and Matchstick jewelry box an example of prisoner handcrafts Dear John: This jewelry box is made entirely of burnt matches and came off a boat from Devils Island, French Guiana, sometime around 1946. It was possibly made by one of the prisoners there. It is very wellcrafted. Could you give me an idea what the value of this piece might be? M.E., InternetDear M.E.: Decorative handmade prisoner of war artifacts have been of interest in the antiques marketplace for a long time. Most collectors focus on the Napoleonic Wars era, where the highest prices are paid. Most of the wood boxes made by those prisoners were of straw, and very ornate. Collectors refer to them as Prisoner of War Straw Work. It is likely your box made of matchsticks was done by a prisoner, as you suspect. Potential dollar value is $75 to $150. Dear John: I am attaching a picture of a painting and another showing the artists name DeFaenza. The closest I was able to find was Antonio Gentili Da Faenza It was given to my mother by her brother in the 1970s and it came in to my possession after the passing of my parents. It appears to be an oil on canvas and is 49 inches wide by 25 inches tall. Admittedly, my Internet search skills are not the best. I hope you can find additional information about the artist and the painting, as well as what the value might be. Thank you for your help.
