Toddler drowns in InvernessCitrus County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to 9121 E. Tsala Apopka Drive in Inverness on Tuesday in reference to a missing toddler. Upon arrival, deputies discovered 3-year-old Tristan Costello had been pulled from the water near the residence. They began CPR immediately and Tristan was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital where he was pronounced dead. Sheriffs detectives are investigating to determine what happened.Car pulled from water off OzelloOn Sunday, sheriffs deputies responded to North Pirate Point in Ozello in reference to a submerged vehicle. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the body of a 67-year-old Homosassa woman was inside the vehicle, a white Ford Escort. Friends of the victim who had seen her earlier that day stated she indicated that she was moving out of the home where she was staying. According to a family member, she suffered from depression and was antisocial. One friend recalled her commenting about a year ago that she wasnt happy and wanted to drive her car into the river. Although the exact cause of death has not been determined by the medical examiners office, it is suspected that the victim committed suicide. At this time, no foul play is suspected, although detectives continue to investigate. Its the Chronicles practice not to publish names of the deceased in cases suspected to be suicide.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Four Citrus County Sheriffs deputies lost their jobs during the past couple of weeks three resigned while facing the possibility of being fired for falsifying documents and a fourth was fired outright for what Commander Buddy Grant called gross misconduct for interactions involving an 18-year-old woman. Deputies Charles Schanel, Thomas Peruche and Chad Doyle all resigned Nov. 22 after a Citrus County Sheriffs Office internal affairs investigation revealed that the three, independent of each other, falsified paperwork for offduty work they did not perform. Meanwhile, Deputy Thomas Matos was fired Nov. 24 after a similar internal investigation concluded he committed gross violations including untruthfulness, willful disregard of duties, dissemination of internal agency information and moral character involving his conduct with a young woman. Matos firing came on the heels of repeated warnings last summer about his relationship with the young woman. In August, Matos agency shirt was found by other deputies who were conducting a security check on the womans car late one night at Bicentennial Park. When Matos was reportedly confronted about it, he said he loaned the uniform shirt to the woman to dry off two nights earlier after she was found only in her undergarments, after hours, swimming at Bicentennial Park pool. Grant said the investigation of Matos revealed several conflicting accounts of his interactions with the woman, including sharing internal agency email information Four lose jobs with sheriffs office Three deputies resign, one fired in separate cases of reported misconduct See DEPUTIES/ Page A5 AMANDAMAUGHAN CorrespondentLECANTOWhat God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. On a winters day in 1943, Marvin and Grayce stood in the chapel of Albright College and heard those immortal words. On Dec 4., the couple will celebrate seven decades together as husband and wife. For Marvin and Grayce Weibley, this is a precious milestone. Both in their early 90s, the Pennsylvania natives recall the first time they met: It was at a church barbecue in Shillington, Pa. Marvin had accompanied his cousin and was sitting alone on the sidelines. I looked over and saw him sitting there, and I knew he was a visitor, said Grayce. So, I went over and asked him if he would like to have a hot dog, and he said that would be nice. They began chatting, and a twoyear courtship followed. It all started over a hot dog, Marvin said with a smile. While they were dating, Marvin worked as an apprentice for Westinghouse Electric Company in Philadelphia, and Grayce worked in Reading. On the weekends, he drove home to see her. She explained that one weekend, he showed up with a ring. When she asked him what it meant, Marvin shied away from declaring it an engagement ring. Weeks passed and she was still uncertain if they were engaged. Grayce said, Finally, one day he said, OK, when is your birthday? When you are 22, well get married. The day after her 22nd birthday, the couple walked down the aisle. It was a modest wedding, Seven-decade journey MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleMarvin and Grayce Weibley will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary today.

Bitterness over court battles from the investors last attempt to develop in Yankeetown was obvious at Mondays council workshop. Nonetheless, representatives gave an upbeat presentation on a new development concept for two riverfront sites owned by the investors. Attorney Joe Gaynor from Clearwater explained the ownership of the property has been restructured, with three of the former investors stepping in to take over when the property went into foreclosure. Gaynor said they are not developers, but investors, and once the project is entitled receives the necessary planning and zoning they will seek a developer. He said it would probably be built in phases, using a model home to see what the market dictates. Our concept is there is something that could be developed on that property, which in fact would be in the interest of the community, he said. What we looked at is what we thought would fit the needs of the developer and the community and be marketable in the current economy. My clients sort of inherited this, he said.

Associated PressLONGWOOD A woman was injured in an encounter with a bear while walking her dog, and wildlife officers set up a trap Tuesday to try to capture the animal, officials said. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said in a news release that Susan Chalfant was hurt Monday evening in the Orlando suburb of Longwood. Chalfant was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment and her condition wasnt immediately available. The dog wasnt injured. A neighbor on a 911 call said Chalfant was bleeding from the head. Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were patrolling the neighborhood where Chalfant was hurt and set up a trap in the yard where the bear was last seen. Florida has had a series of recent sightings of bears in urban or suburban settings when they are usually on the hunt for food in garbage cans. Special to the ChronicleNinety-one marijuana plants were recovered Monday from a house at 914 West Keller St. in Citrus Hills. ChronicleAfter receiving information on possible suspicious activity at a house in Citrus Hills, a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy investigated Monday and noticed a broken well in the front yard of 914 West Keller St. that was gushing water into the street. After looking around the residence, Deputy Robert Williams noticed suspicious pipes coming out of the side of the house, according to the sheriffs office. Williams contacted Detective Aidan Marshall of the Tactical Impact Unit (TIU) for assistance. Marshall responded to the scene and found probable cause for a search warrant. Once TIU arrived on scene and entered the residence, they found the house had been converted into a large-scale marijuana grow operation. Three bedrooms were converted to rooms to grow marijuana. After assessing the scene, detectives noticed the house was being powered by stolen electricity. Duke Energy responded to the scene to investigate the meter. Ninety-one plants were recovered, with half reaching mid-level growth with plants 4 feet tall. The plants were not ready to be harvested or sold. The residents were not home and no arrests were made. The investigation is ongoing. Those with any information regarding this case are asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Citrus County. You can remain anonymous.

TallahasseeTeachers earn good marks on evaluationsNearly 98 percent of Floridas classroom teachers are effective or highly effective according to ratings released by state officials. The ratings released Tuesday are part of the states contentious evaluation system that was first passed by state legislators two years ago. Only 306 teachers out of nearly 190,000 across the state were given unsatisfactory rankings. This years ratings are very similar to ones released in 2012. But the scores varied widely among districts. Some districts reported they had as many as eight times the number of highly effective teachers as other districts. When asked about the discrepancy, state education officials said local districts have flexibility over deciding how to evaluate teachers. The evaluations have come under fire, because part of the evaluations is based on test scores. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Nativity scene on display in state Capitol Shotgun shack chic Floral City woman restores historic homeCHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS The vintage cottage had seen better days. But now its days are better than ever in its century of existence, and its new owner would like to know its secrets. When this one came up for sale, we said, Ah, thats historic. Lets jump on that, said Diane Calfee, new owner of the small house on Lake Street that she has refurbished. Its historic, although we have modernized it. It was actually a shotgun house. In order for it to be a vacation rental, we had to alter it. We built two closets and we made that hallway. Calfee, who moved to Floral City six years ago, said she and her husband love living in a rural county and a small-town community. They are members of the Citrus County Historical Society and active with such events as Floral City Heritage Days, which starts Friday evening. With an interest in county history, Calfee would like to learn more about the house on Lake Street. Im trying to research it, Calfee said. Id like to find out who owned it or if anything happened here. The old house now boasts modern comforts with vintage charm. The original shotgun house, where one room opens onto another without hallways, built in the early years of the 20th century, now has hallways and closets. These old houses didnt have closets. You didnt have anywhere to put anything, Calfee explained. She added a second full bathroom to make a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The original back porchalreadywas enclosed when Calfee bought the house, so she turned it into a dining room off the kitchen. The passageway was spacious enough to fit in a laundry alcove of a washer and dryer behind folding doors. Outside, she added a porch with rocking chairs, a picket fence and landscaping. It had been shored up underneath and it had a new roof, Calfee said in describing the condition of the house, which had sat vacant for some time before it was sold. We had to put complete air conditioning in.We had to put the flooring in.A lot of plumbing, a lot of electrical. We had some great contractors. The contractors have Calfees husband, Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City, as a regular customer. The original kitchen and bathroom cabinets were updated with a blue shade of paint and new vintage-looking knobs. I tried to decorate in what I call French country, Calfee said. Everything in here has been previously loved. Buying foreclosures and fixing them up for resale is part of Calfees business background. This time, the house was not a foreclosure. Calfee bought it as an investment property and, for the first time, she got to furnish and decorate it. Ive had a great time, Calfee said. I can tell you where every vintage shop is. I have shopped just about daily. A lot of the furniture is older. We have some antiques in here. The dining room and living room both boast a chandelier and the living room also contains an antique pump organ. This is going to be a rental and you can get a rental that has regular furniture, Calfee said. I wanted this to have interesting things in it, like the little chandeliers. We tried to stay with the old pictures. A lot of them are French advertisements. Calfee seeks to appeal to tourists who like the small-town life and outdoor activities offered around Inverness. We love this area because when I advertise this as a rental, they can walk downtown, Calfee said. The bike trail is three blocks away. They can walk down to the farmers market. They can walk to restaurants. Were in our cars too much anyway. When Im on vacation I would like to go to a town. We just got back from St. Augustine. There, you park your car and you just walk everywhere. And I like that. I like that Ive been able to purchase in an area thats close enough to do that. Although the house is a rental property, Calfee has stamped it with her own identity. This is our house, Calfee said. We can still enjoy it and have have fun with it and buy little antiques for it, but let others enjoy it, too. Kathy Turner-Thompson, the countys historical resources officer, told the Chroniclethat the house likely was built for employees of the Hanbury Lumber Company that operated a private logging railroad in the early 20th century. Calfee asked that anyone with information call her at 813-967-5580.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-5642916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. ChronicleOne of the joys of Christmas is the music. On Sunday, Dec. 8, Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church presents the Marion Civic Chorale and The Sounds of Christmas. This free concert is part of the Light Shine humanities program, sponsored by Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church in Lecanto, the Florida Humanities Council and theCitrus CountyChronicle. This will be their third time with us, and they always draw a huge crowd when they perform, said George Krueger, member of Shepherd of the Hills. Were hoping many people from the community will attend. Music selections include Vivaldis Gloria, What Sweeter Music, I Saw Three Ships, Still, Still, Still and Ring Out Ye Bells. The chorale is made up of some 50-plus singers, soloists from South Florida, a pianist, plus four other instruments, Krueger said. The church is at 2540 W. Norvell Bryant Highway, Lecanto.

BELOW: Since the house is around a century old, Calfee is curious about its history. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A private group placed a Nativity scene in the Florida state Capitol on Tuesday in an event that included prayers, children singing Christmas carols and a celebration of Jesus birth. Up next, the atheists get their say. The Capitol rotunda is open to any group that applies through the state Department of Management Services as long as their displays follow guidelines on size and other restrictions. The Florida Nativity Scene Committee decided to use that opportunity to display the biblical scene of Jesus birth. We are not trying to offend anyone, but we are taking a stand for Christ in Christmas, a stand for truth and religious freedom, said Pam Olsen, who organized the event. And what better place to do this than the heart of our state government. American Civil Liberties Union of Florida executive director Howard Simon immediately thought of two better places. They may now have a right to do that, but there are better places, Simon said. There are houses of worship and there are each of our homes if we choose to commemorate the holidays. Samuel Voran, 19 months old, points to a Christmas Nativity scene installed Tuesday in the Florida Capitol, the first Nativity scene in decades inside the rotunda.Associated Press

TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Wednesday, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2013. There are 27 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County, Virginia, where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. (Some suggest this was the true first Thanksgiving in America, ahead of the Pilgrims arrival in Massachusetts.) On this date: In 1783, Gen. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York. In 1945, the Senate approved U.S. participation in the United Nations by a vote of 65-7. In 1991, Associated Press correspondent Terry Anderson, the longest held of the Western hostages in Lebanon, was released after nearly seven years in captivity. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush scrapped import tariffs hed imposed earlier to help the battered U.S. steel industry. Five years ago: U.S. automakers drew fresh skepticism from lawmakers during a Senate Banking Committee hearing over their pleas for an expanded $34 billion rescue package they said was needed for them to survive. One year ago: A homeless man, Naeem Davis, was taken into custody in New York City in the death of a man whod been pushed in front of a subway train; Davis would be charged with second-degree murder. Todays Birthdays: Game show host Wink Martindale is 80. Actor Jeff Bridges is 64. Actress Marisa Tomei is 49. Actor-comedian Fred Armisen is 47. Rapper Jay-Z is 44. Actress-model Tyra Banks is 40. Country singer Lila McCann is 32. Thought for Today: Theres much to be said for challenging fate instead of ducking behind it.

The U.S. attorneys office in Atlanta said Tuesday that Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis faces two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors said Davis, whos 33, was indicted by a federal grand jury Nov. 19. Prosecutors say Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found to have a gun on Sept. 12. and was found to have a different gun in his possession two days later, on Sept. 14. Prosecutors said he acted erratically and threatened people on both occasions.Stewart picked for NASCAR coverDAYTONA BEACH Tony Stewart smoked the field in a fan vote and will grace the cover of the NASCAR video game. Stewarts fan base seemed to rally around the injured driver, who missed the final months of the season after breaking his right leg in an Aug. 5 sprint car crash. Stewart, the three-time Sprint Cup champion, took 69 percent of the vote in the final round to defeat Jeff Gordon. During the five-week contest conducted on Facebook, Stewart dominated each round of the competition. He won nearly one-fifth of the more than 700,000 votes. He has appeared on the cover twice before, but this is the first time he was selected by fans. NASCAR is scheduled for release in early 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.Bob Dylan charged with hate speechPARIS French authorities have filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan over a 2012 interview in which he is quoted comparing Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. The charges of public insult and inciting hate were filed against the musician in midNovember, Paris prosecutors office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said Tuesday. They stem from a lawsuit by a Croatian community group in France over remarks in an interview in Rolling Stone magazine in September 2012. Speaking about race relations in the United States, Dylan was quoted as saying: If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.

about deputies being warned to stay away from her. Matos reportedly even shared information with the woman about the location of agency patrol personnel. Grant said when he told Matos to refrain from contact with the woman, Matos immediately contacted the woman following that conversation. Matos worked less than four years with the agency. I think it sends a strong message that unprofessional conduct, especially around the safety of our personnel, will not be tolerated, Grant said. If your personal wants and desires are more important than your work, you dont have a place in this agency. Meanwhile, Grant said Schanel, Peruche and Doyle basically violated agency policy by submitting documents for offduty security work that they didnt do. We found internally that they were getting dual compensation. They would be working a shift for the agency, but then would fill out an activity log saying they were also working, for example, at Pine Ridge when in fact they did not work the detail, Grant said. He said work details, such as those entered into by homeowners associations and deputies for offduty work, often dont involve regular reporting or monitoring. Grant said deputies are given activity forms to log what they did during those details. The three deputies patently violated standard operating procedures by lying about working when they clearly didnt, Grant said. He said one of the deputies drove his mother to the doctors office when he claimed he was working. It comes down to credibility. How am I supposed to trust someone who falsified documents and stole from the agency and others after they get paid for work they didnt do? Grant said. How can anyone believe them if they go to court to testify, after they did what they did? Schanel is a 13-year veteran of the agency, while Peruche and Doyle are fiveand nine-year veterans respectively. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy also weighed in on the conduct of the officers Tuesday. This is an embarrassment to me, my employees, this agency and to the citizens we serve, Dawsy said. Although I would like to say officer misconduct will never happen again, I cant guarantee that. I can guarantee, however, that we will continue to selfpolice and we will continue to follow through with comprehensive internal affairs investigations just like we did here. The four deputies had been under investigation for several months. Grant said the first three were investigated after a supervisor alerted officials about discrepancies in log activities. Then we decided to do a full audit of all details, Grant said. He said a lot of deputies are involved in off-duty work, and that going forward, the agency will now conduct audits. past plan was very grandiose. The proposed project is for 60 units on two parcels totaling 7.7 acres. The larger site, 5.28 acres, would have three eightunit buildings and four four-unit buildings. They would be a maximum of 40 feet tall, two stories built over one level of parking. There would be 30 boat slips on the river. There would be an onsite package plant for sewage. The plant would serve both sites and the effluent would be pumped to an offsite spray field on other property owned by the investors. The second site, 2.42 acres, would have one eight-unit building and three four-unit buildings. They would all be two stories, built over parking spaces with 17 boat slips. The proposed units would be about 750 square feet with a kitchen, not designed for full-time tenants, but rather to attract people who would stay for a few weeks. There is a very residential scale to the project, said Cynthia Tarapani, planning consultant for the investors. Residents queued up to voice concerns and raise questions. The 40-foot buildings would require new fire equipment, which the county would have to purchase, said Jack Schofield. We do not have a big enough fire department. Jean Holbrook had concerns on the environmental impacts and adverse affect on the towns character. Other residents had issues with road maintenance, boat traffic, the proposed sewage treatment, manatee safety, parking for boat trailers and especially the density. Several residents brought up the previous lawsuits and insisted any new development meet current town standards. It would need at least a dozen changes to the comp plan and would go to the voters, said city attorney Ralf Brookes. He suggested they possibly have another meeting. This was to see what they had, he said. It was not a formal submission. He asked they go back and refine it before they go to the next step. Were open to suggestions, said Gaynor. I hope we can prove to the city that we can do something thats good for both of us. It may be impossible and we just put it up for auction. with a small gathering of friends and family. A dinner was held at a hotel in Reading after the ceremony. Then we went back to our apartment in Darby and the next day back to work, Grayce said. Sadly, the couple never had a honeymoon. The country was at war and the prospect of taking a vacation was impractical. You had to work seven days a week. So we really couldnt get a week or two weeks honeymoon, Marvin said. Everything was rationed. To get extra gasoline was almost impossible. Having completed the apprenticeship program, Marvin was no longer exempt from the draft. The newlyweds had been married for just six months when he entered the Marines. Stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., with the rank of corporal, Marvin trained dogs in the K-9 Corps. To be near her husband, Grayce got a job at the quartermaster depot. The day I found out that I was pregnant was the day he got his orders to ship to the Pacific, said Grayce. Expecting her first child and having a husband fighting overseas, she found strength in prayer. I just prayed and hoped for the best. God is in control and the whatevers are in His hands, not mine. Her prayers were answered, and Marvin returned home safely. He resumed his employment with Westinghouse and the two raised a family. Marvin Jr. was born in 1945 and their daughter, Gayle, arrived in 1950. As the children were growing up, Grayce worked outside the home. She was an assistant principal at Penncrest High School, and a secretary at The Bartol Research Foundation, a science foundation that drew physicists from around the globe. My mother was a secretary to these 60 physicists, and she used to type up all of their theses. It was a big deal, and she was not able to talk about it, daughter Gayle said. After being employed there for several years, a heart attack forced Grayce to quit. She directed her energy toward writing and found fulfillment in authoring hundreds of inspirational articles, some of which appeared in Guideposts Magazine and Billy Grahams Decision Magazine. Marvin retired from Westinghouse after 44 years. The Weibleys moved around quite a bit, but eventually settled in Citrus County nine years ago. They are active members of Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church and enjoy spending time with friends. Suzanne Panarisi is a neighbor who has known Marvin and Grayce for roughly eight years. We became friends very quickly, she said. They are wonderful, loving, caring people. When you think of their anniversary and all the years theyve been together its just unbelievable! The couple celebrated their anniversary early while visiting Gayle and her husband, David, in California. The two-week trip was topped off by dinner at the historic Cliff House in San Francisco. We were able to sit out in the middle of the mountain, and the waterfalls, and have dinner. The food was exquisite and the ambiance was special, said Gayle. It was really a memorable night. In 70 years of marriage, the Weibleys have experienced both blessings and tragedies. The loss of their son, Marvin Jr., and the untimely death of their only grandchild, Wendy, are painful memories. To couples, Grayce offered this advice: God gives you the grace to do what you have to do. And no, its not always a bed of roses, but theres usually a life lesson you can learn from every difficult situation. With this outlook, the Weibleys look toward the future knowing that whatever life brings, they will face it together.

Charles Schirmer State students below global peers in math, science Associated PressMIAMI Florida teens scored lower than their international peers in math and science and about the same in reading, results from a global test released Tuesday show. Overall, the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment shows U.S. students continuing to stagnate in math, reading and science while students in places like Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore top the rankings in every subject. The average U.S. 15year-old student scored lower than the international average and about average in science and reading. The problem is not that our 15-year-olds are performing worse today than before, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Tuesday in announcing the results with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the Parisbased organization that develops and administers the PISA exam. The problem is theyre simply not making progress. Angel Gurria, secretary general of the OECD, said the results come at a crucial time. The ongoing economic crisis has only increased the urgency of developing peoples skills, both in the education system and in and for the workplace, he said. Florida was one of three states to get statespecific results. The other two states were Massachusetts and Connecticut. All three opted to have separate samples of public school student performance in order to get the state-level scores. Students in Florida scored an average of 467 on a 1,000-point scale in math, lower than the international average of 494 and U.S. average of 481. Both Massachusetts and Connecticut scored higher, with averages of 514 and 506, respectively. In science, Florida students scored an average of 485 points, lower than the international average of 501 but about the same as other students in the U.S. Again, both Massachusetts and Connecticut saw higher averages of 527 and 521. Reading scores for Florida students were about the same as both the international and U.S. averages. Despite the comparatively lower Florida scores, state education officials said students have shown improvement in recent years.

Houston said a ban on open alcohol could remedy complaints registered by area residents. I think this will handle a lot of the noise problems and cut some of the congestion, he said. The city council is expected to consider the ordinance in January. The Three Sisters Springs working group, a spinoff of the citys waterfronts advisory board, convened in June to address problems related to the ever-increasing overcrowding issue at the popular springs. Group members include homeowners, a sheriffs captain, a tour boat operator and representatives of state and federal governments. Former Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge manager Michael Lusk was named to the group; interim manager Andrew Gude attended Tuesdays meeting in city hall. Group members also discussed the need of county, state and federal agencies to coordinate enforcement. We try to get out there as much as we can, Citrus County Sheriffs Capt. Danny Linhart said. Gude noted that his agencys enforcement is often limited to manatee harassment. Im not sure my guys can enforce non-federal laws in non-federal waters, he said. Houston said he would meet with agency representatives to determine enforcement duties. Other group recommendations to the city council included establishing a mooring field in the canal outside Three Sisters Springs to reduce congestion. The mooring field would be a floating cable system with metal pilings. Approval of a mooring field would be required by the Department of Environmental Protection. Group members said a mooring field would ensure canal access to property owners who now say boats block the channel.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER4, 2013 A7 000GRQY Sunshine For Your Loved One Our Story + Your Story = 311 NE 4th Ave. Crystal River Assisted Living Facility Lic. # 12230 www.sgwseniors.com (352) 563-0235 Our compassionate staff is ready to help.

Interestrates 000GS8Z Stocks sink as US consumer spending worries deepen Associated PressNEW YORK After eight weeks of gains, maybe the stock market pullback long anticipated by investors has arrived. Stocks fell Tuesday, dragged lower by the Detroit automakers and consumer-focused companies such as GameStop and Amazon.com. The market could be headed for its first weekly decline since early October, putting at risk a remarkable rally that has sent indexes to record highs. The declines do not come as a surprise to large investors, many of whom have been predicting a pullback. The S&P 500 has surged 26 percent this year, on track for its best year since the dot-com bull market of the late 1990s. Stocks cannot go straight up all the time. For stocks to pause, decline or even enter a correction, a Wall Street term for when an index falls 10 percent or more, would all be considered normal after eight straight weeks of gains. The markets may have stalled out here, but that must be taken in the context of what has been a great year, said Alec Young, global equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 94.15 points, or 0.6 percent, to 15,914.62. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 5.75 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,795.15 and the Nasdaq composite fell 8.06 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,037.20. Companies that depend heavily on consumer spending had some of the biggest losses. GameStop, the video game retailer, sank $1.02, or 2 percent, to $45.95, one of the worst declines in the S&P 500 index. Amazon.com fell $7.64, or 2 percent, to $384.66. Automakers fell. General Motors lost 97 cents, or 3 percent, to $38.14 and Ford fell 50 cents, or 3 percent, to $16.56, despite what auto industry analysts considered mostly positive sales reports for November. The sell-off auto stocks cams as a surprise to industry analysts. Chrysler said sales rose 16 percent in November compared with a year ago, while GM and Fords sales increased 14 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Overall, the industry reported a 9 percent year-over-year sales gain. Investors are waiting for several economic reports later this week that could influence whether the Fed will pare back its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program, which is designed to keep interest rates low and stimulate the economy. When you look at how markets have performed this year, some investors may have decided to cash in, put their feet up and drink eggnog, said Lawrence Creatura, a portfolio manager with Federated Investors. On Friday, the government will release its monthly job market survey, one of the most closely watched indicators of the U.S. economy. Economists expect that employers created 180,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate remained steady at 7.2 percent, according to FactSet, a financial information provider. price-earnings ratios to rise, so corporate 1,400 2,000 2013 2014 J F M A M J J A S O N D 1,426.19 1,795.15 25.9% Wall Street strategists expect the change p p rice-earnin g s ratios to rise, so cor po o rate 2,000 20 2 0 1 .9% 1,795.15 4 14 c h an ge 1,400 M M J 1,426.19 N S J all Street strate g ists exp e W e ct the BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Employers step in to prevent worker burnoutLONDON Volkswagen turns off some employees' email 30 minutes after their shifts end. Goldman Sachs is urging junior staff to take weekends off. BMW is planning new rules that will keep workers from being contacted after hours. This surge in corporate beneficence isn't an indication that employers are becoming kinder and gentler: It's about the bottom line. After years in which the ease of instant communication via email and smartphones allowed bosses to place greater and greater demands on white-collar workers, some companies are beginning to set limits, recognizing that successful employees must be able to escape from work.Americans turn to mobile devices for Cyber MondayNEW YORK Power up and shop. Millions of Americans logged on to e-commerce sites Monday to take advantage of deals ranging from free shipping to hundreds of dollars off electronics and half-price clothing on what was expected to be the busiest Internet shopping day of the year. And many of those purchases were made using mobile devices. The spending surge associated with Cyber Monday came after a disappointing Thanksgiving holiday weekend in stores. It also showed that shoppers are increasingly comfortable buying on tablets and smartphones.Holiday weekend gives a boost to auto salesDETROIT Americans proved last month that they're head over heels about small sport utility vehicles. They also wanted to buy more than just video game consoles and bigscreen TVs on Black Friday. November auto sales rose 9 percent above a year ago, with a solid piece of the gains coming over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Sales ran at an annual pace of 16.4 million cars and trucks last month, the best in almost seven years. The numbers gave further evidence that the small SUV is replacing the car as the vehicle of choice for families and aging baby boomers.From wire reports

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 Pleased with Kenney running againWe are citizens of Citrus County and are pleased to note that Commissioner JJ Kenney is running for commissioner for District 2. We intend to vote for him in the upcoming election. Here is why: When first elected, he did not enter that office with any preconceived ideas of what that office entailed. Rather, he took time to learn the goals and needs of that office prior to any action on his part. Nor did he seek that office for any kind of vengeance against fellow commissioners. For the record, Mr. Kenney did not serve his country in a highly paid income tax-free position as a foreign contractor overseas. He served his country as a U.S. Marine in Vietnam. I encourage my fellow veterans and citizens to cast their vote for his re-election.Neville Anderson Inverness GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. We reach an American landmark on Friday that will be noted by few and celebrated by none. It is the 40th anniversary of the confirmation of Gerald R. Ford as vice president. On the surface theres little reason to mark the ascension of anyone to a position that John Adams, the first man to occupy the vice presidency, described with some accuracy as the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived. There have been 47 vice presidents, and it would be surprising if you could name a quarter of them. Theres even less reason to note this occasion for a man such as Ford, one of 14 vice presidents to become president. For those who ascended, their most significant moments were in the White House, not in the humble vice-presidential cubbyholes where presidents tucked them away so they wouldnt be a nuisance. That said, the vice presidency and presidency of Gerald Ford stand apart. He was the first vice president to move to the post under the 25th amendment, which provides for a president to fill a vacancy in the vice presidency and for that nominee to be confirmed by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. Only Ford and his own vice president, Nelson A. Rockefeller, have become vice president by that route. Ford A Norman Rockwell painting come to life, in the words of George H.W. Bush at Fords funeral was also the first president to gain the office without a direct vote of the people, a condition he noted in his very first address as chief executive when he asked Americans to confirm me as your president with your prayers. Ford became vice president at the height of perhaps the greatest constitutional crisis in American history. President Richard M. Nixon was on the defensive about Watergate, his impeachment not just possible but likely, his vice president, Spiro T. Agnew, having already resigned amid corruption charges. The country was reeling; Washington was in upheaval. The nation needed a vice president, but even more it needed a sense of stability. On Oct. 12, 1973, the telephone rang in the Ford home in Alexandria, Va. Dad, said Susan Ford, then 16, the White House is calling. Two hours later, Ford was at the executive mansion for the nationally televised announcement of his nomination as vice president. None of this was entirely a surprise. Ford, then the House minority leader, had been asked to collect names of possible vice presidents from House members. The final tally was kept by Rose Mary Woods, Nixons executive assistant. Ford got 80 votes. The next closest was Rockefeller, with 35. Nixon knew Ford, the two having met on the Michigan congressmans first day in Washington in 1949. And Nixon was comfortable with him, though the broader situation, without precedent in American history, was one of immense discomfort for both men. Ford was chosen because he was confirmable, says Joel Goldstein, a St. Louis University Law School expert on the vice presidency. But he set a high standard for the vice presidency. The evening that Ford was introduced as the presidents selection, Nixon described the next vice president as someone who had served 25 years with distinction. Everyone in the East Room Washingtons grandees, with a decidedly Republican tint knew by midsentence who that was. Every member of the crowd stood and cheered. The very next day, Rep. Gerald R. Ford of Michigans fifth congressional district marched for the 25th time in the Red Flannel Day parade in Cedar Springs, Mich. The vice-presidential confirmation hearings were pro forma but no breeze. Sen. Claiborne Pell, the Rhode Island Democrat, asked if congressional leaders would have ready access to the new vice president. Ive had an opendoor policy as minority leader, Ford said. He was asked whether he thought Nixon would survive. I think so, he said. Its going to take a lot of help from a lot of people. In truth, Ford dreaded what might happen, and he understood that if he succeeded Nixon he would have to deal with more than simply the fallout of Watergate. There was an economic crisis, continued conflict in Vietnam, uncertainty overseas, a lack of public trust in government. Early in August 1974, White House chief of staff Alexander M. Haig called Ford and asked if he were ready to assume the presidency in a short period of time. Fords answer: If it happens, Al, I am prepared. A week later in the Oval Office, Nixon told Ford: Jerry, you will become president. I know you will do a good job. Ford answered: Mr. President, you know I am saddened by this circumstance. You know I would have wished it to be otherwise. I was hoping you could continue. Under the circumstances, I think your decision (to resign) is the right one. He added: I am ready to do the job, and I think I am fully qualified to do it. The meeting between Nixon and Ford lasted one hour and 10 minutes. It was agonizing. Ford just wanted to be out of that room, away from the awkwardness that had overwhelmed both men. The silence of the car awaiting him outside the White House provided a great refuge. In his first days as president, Ford displayed perfect pitch. I have not campaigned either for the presidency or the vice presidency, he said upon taking office. I am indebted to no man and only to one woman my dear wife as I begin this very difficult job. Later, the pardon of Nixon took some of the luster off the new president, though many historians now believe Ford was right to rid himself and the presidency of such a monumental distraction. Even so, his was a presidency where routine ruled, which, given the circumstances, was a substantial achievement. His accomplishments, former newsman and Ford domestic policy adviser James Cannon wrote in a biography published this spring, were methodically achieved by steadiness and common sense. It was the lack of drama that marked Fords life and his administration. Seldom has routine been so remarkable. In historys mirror, Fords presidency is bigger than it appeared at the time.David M.

Whod have thought the conservative voice of Southwest Florida would get popped in a cocaine sting in Washington, D.C.? Not Gov. Rick Scott. Not Florida Republican Party Chairman Lenny Curry. Not state Attorney General Pam Bondi. They and other party leaders wisely are telling freshman U.S. Rep. Radel to resign. As other Republicans gear up their candidacies, Rep. Radel isnt likely to get many calls asking for his endorsement. Theres something about living to a higher ethical standard be it fact or fiction thats expected of those we send to the nations Capitol. Party lines are irrelevant when it comes to poor personal decisions and substance abuse. In the end, Republicans, Democrats and people of all party affiliations are human and, as such, are flawed and vulnerable. One thing that makes Rep. Radels particular situation hypocritical, though, is his support of drug testing food stamp beneficiaries. Since elected officials are on the public dole, they should be the first to be subjected to drug testing. Funny that they dont see it that way. So now this congressman who had strong support from tea party conservatives has pleaded guilty to buying 3 1/2 grams of coke. He is taking a leave of absence from Congress and undergoing rehabilitation. While rehab is a positive albeit predictable step, Rep. Radel needs to do the right thing: resign. If and when he squares away his drug problem and works through the family-related consequences of his actions, he could go on to do great things. Right now, though, the right thing is to exit Congress. Under the Integrity heading of his website, heres what then-candidate Trey Radel had to say: Ive been consistently talking about conservative values and the problems in Washington on TV and on 92.5 FOX News radio for years. Ive also bought, run and sold businesses in Southwest Florida then a few months ago, duty called. My heart told me that when my little son Jude was grown up, I had to be able to tell him Your Father didnt just talk about it. He did something about it. Rep. Radel has brought discredit to his reputation and his office. Its time he did something about it. THE ISSUE:Congressmans cocaine arrest.OUR OPINION:Trey Radel should heed partys call for resignation.

LETTERSto the Editor A question of constitutionalityThe Nov. 19 Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting was opened by Clerk of the Court Angela Vick. On the dais was chairman of the board Joe Meek. Also, there was the first vice chairman of the board, JJ Kenney, along with the second vice chairman of the board, Rebecca Bays. All these are elected members of the board and appeared to be of sound mind and body. It was noted several times during the early portions of the meeting that it was without a chairman due to the apparent expiration of the entire leadership of the board and no action could be taken. This is basically saying at some point in time that the county was without leadership and due to rules of sequencing Vick was required to run the government and open the meeting. I would charge that Vicks first order of business should have been to return the county government to its proper order of leadership. I believe Meek should have opened the meeting stating his term of leadership is expiring while requesting nominations for the next term. Upon the election of new leadership, an oath of office should have been administered by Vick. There appears to be a weakness in this process. Maybe a staggering of the terms of office for the chairman, first vice chair and second vice chair are in order to allow the smooth flow of governing our county is not jeopardized.Herbert H. Adams DunnellonTurn off those cellphonesI just want to say I am sick and tired everywhere I go of hearing peoples cellphones go off and then their loud conversations. It is very disturbing and rude when you are in church, movies, restaurants and just about everywhere else that cellphones go off. I like to enjoy my restaurant meal without listening to someones conversation. I think when they are in a public place they need to turn that cellphone off just to be considerate of others. Enough is enough! When driving, how can you be on a cellphone and text at the same time unless you want to meet your maker? You also may take another life texting. So why not be kind and turn the cellphone off when you are in a public place? Unless youre a doctor, or it is an emergency, would be the only time to leave it on. Other than that, please be considerate of others and leave it off or on vibrate. I hope this message gets across to those who couldnt care less about others around them.

Associated PressWASHINGTON To say that new academic standards have yielded strange bedfellows would be an understatement. Republican-onRepublican infighting? Teacher unions linking arms with tea partiers? President Barack Obama working in tandem with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and energy giant Exxon? When it comes to CommonCore, forget the old allegiances. Traditionally Democratic-leaning groups dont like the standardized tests and are finding allies among small-government conservatives. The Obama administration wants more students leaving high school ready for college courses or their first jobs, a goal shared by big corporations. The standards, adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, essentially exchanged state-by-state benchmarks for one uniform guide about what skills a student should have at each grade level. For instance: all third-graders should know how to find the perimeter of a shape. How an educator at the front of a classroom teaches that is up to each school. Look at two potential contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Says Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal: We need Louisiana standards, not Washington, D.C., standards. Counters former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: If youre comfortable with mediocrity, fine. Im not. Both see their education records as a political asset. Each has placed a bet on whether the standards keep enraging small-government activists or whether they fade by the time Iowa and New Hampshire start the nominating process. Democrats arent spared the intra-party strife, either. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said critics of the standards engage in political silliness. The head of the American Federation of Teachers, meanwhile, compares the implementation of the standards to the rollout of the federal health care law. You think the Obamacare implementation is bad? said Randi Weingarten, who supports the standards goals but has been vocal about the role of testing. The implementation of the CommonCore is far worse. Such divisions are as common as unusual alliances. Obama is getting a hand from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent $36 million to help Republican candidates in 2012. For the chamber, the nations largest business coalition, a skilled and educated workforce is good for the bottom line. There have been efforts to roll back the standards at statehouses in Florida, Missouri, Ohio and Pennsylvania. And several states are revisiting the decision to partner with other states to develop tests.

No anomalies found in train brake systemNEW YORK Investigators looking into a deadly New York City train derailment said no anomalies have been found with the trains brake system. The Metro-North Railroad commuter train was traveling Sunday at 82 mph as it approached a 30 mph zone and jumped the tracks along a sharp curve. Four passengers died. The National Transportation Safety Board said investigators havent found any evidence of brake trouble during the trains nine previous stops and no problems with track signals. NTSB member Earl Weener said Tuesday there were no anomalies. The rail employees union said veteran engineer William Rockefeller was injured in the wreck and has cooperated with investigators. It said the NTSB investigation will show there was no criminal intent with the operation of his train. But Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said Rockefeller should be disciplined for unjustifiable speed.Ghost hunters in Pa. are mistaken for burglarsGETTYSBURG, Pa. Police in Pennsylvania are investigating a complaint concerning a ghost hunt that went bust after a police officer mistakenly thought it was a burglary in progress. The Gettysburg Times reported Tuesday that the Thanksgiving night ghost tour ended with two tourists and their guide being detained at gunpoint. A patrolman passing a closed store in Gettysburg said he saw flashlights inside, so he went in and handcuffed and searched the three ghost hunters. Police called the owner, who confirmed the tour operator had permission to use the allegedly haunted Civil War-era building. The first Union general killed in the Battle of Gettysburg was brought to the building after being fatally wounded.In your face, selfie! Science also top wordNEW YORK Look alive, selfie.

Judge: Irish police colluded in IRA murderLONDON Irish police colluded in the 1989 murder of two senior Northern Ireland police officers by the Irish Republican Army, a judge-led inquiry found Tuesday. The inquiry looked into the circumstances around the death of Harry Breen and Bob Buchanan, who were ambushed and shot by militants in March 1989 in south Armagh. The two officers, who werent armed, were attacked when they were crossing the border into Northern Ireland shortly after a meeting in an Irish police station in the town of Dundalk. In a report, Judge Peter Smithwick, who has spent the past eight years gathering evidence on whether the militants received help in ambushing the two officers, said he was satisfied there was collusion in the murders. Smithwick concluded that the timing of the murders suggested that the information to trigger the IRA operation was likely leaked from the Dundalk police station, although he didnt put the blame on any individual. Tuesdays report was the first time that Ireland has confirmed the longtime suspicion among Northern Irelands Protestant majority that Irish police colluded with the IRA. Breen and Buchanan were the two highest-ranking Northern Ireland police officers to be murdered by the IRAs dominant faction, the Provisionals, which killed nearly 300 police as part of the underground armys failed 1970-1997 campaign to force Northern Ireland out of the U.K.French report: No proof Arafat was poisonedPARIS Extensive reports by French scientists into Palestinian leader Yasser Arafats death have ruled out poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow said Tuesday. The results contradict earlier findings by a Swiss lab, and mean its still unclear how Arafat died nine years ago. Scientists from several countries have tried to determine whether polonium played a role in his death in a French military hospital in 2004. Palestinians have long suspected Israel of poisoning him, which Israel denies. After a 2012 report that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafats clothing, Arafats widow filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered. As part of that investigation, French investigators sought Arafats remains exhumed and ordered genetic, toxicology, medical, anatomical and radiation tests on them. Suha Arafat and her lawyers were notified Tuesday of the results. She told reporters in Paris that they exclude the possibility of poisoning by polonium, a rare and extremely lethal substance. World BRIEFS From wire reports Judge clears way for Detroit bankruptcy Associated PressDETROIT Detroit is eligible to shed billions of dollars of debt that accumulated during the citys decades-long decline, including cutting pensions for thousands of workers and retirees, a judge ruled Tuesday in a decision that shifts the epic bankruptcy case into a new and delicate phase. Judge Steven Rhodes, who wondered aloud why the bankruptcy had not happened years ago, said pensions can be altered just like any contract because the Michigan Constitution does not offer bulletproof protection for employee benefits. But he signaled a desire for a measured approach and warned city officials that they must be prepared to defend any deep reductions. This once proud and prosperous city cant pay its debts. Its insolvent, Rhodes said in formally granting Detroit the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. At the same time, it also has an opportunity for a fresh start. The ruling came more than four months after Detroit filed for Chapter 9 protection. Rhodes agreed with unions and pension funds that the citys emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, had not negotiated in good faith in the weeks ahead of the July filing, a key condition under federal law. But he said the number of creditors more than 100,000 and a wide array of competing interests probably made that impossible. Detroit could have and should have filed for bankruptcy long before it did. Perhaps years, the judge said. The decision set the stage for officials to confront $18 billion in debt with a plan that might pay creditors just pennies on the dollar and is sure to include touchy negotiations over the pensions of about 23,000 retirees and 9,000 workers. Orr says pension funds are short by $3.5 billion. Rhodes promised that he would not lightly or casually sign off on just any cuts. Associated PressFormer Florida Gov.

Associated PressU.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe smile together Tuesday during a joint press conference following their meeting at Abes official residence in Tokyo. Biden voiced strong opposition Tuesday to Chinas new air defense zone above a set of disputed islands, showing a united front with an anxious Japan as tension in the region simmered. For Biden in China, tense reunion with Xi Jinping Associated PressTOKYO In what was supposed to be a warm reunion, Vice President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet instead today in a climate fraught with tension over an airspace dispute that has put Asia on edge. A day before seeing Xi, Biden stood in Japan and publicly rebuked China for trying to enforce its will on its neighbors, escalating the risk of a potentially dangerous accident. Although Biden had hoped to focus on areas of cooperation as the U.S. seeks an expanded Asia footprint, Chinas declaration of a new air defense zone above disputed islands in the East China Sea has pitted the U.S. and China against each other, creating a wide gulf that Biden will seek to bridge during his two-day trip to Beijing. Despite Washingtons preference not to get involved in a territorial spat, concerns that Chinas action could portend a broader effort to assert its dominance in the region has drawn in the U.S., putting Biden in the middle as he jets from Japan to China to South Korea on a weeklong tour of Asia. We, the United States, are deeply concerned by the attempt to unilaterally change the status quo in the East China Sea, Biden said after meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. This action has raised regional tensions and increased the risk of accidents and miscalculation. To that end, Biden said he would raise those concerns with Chinas leaders with great specificity during his Beijing visit. Although the U.S. has repeatedly said it rejects the zone, Biden has avoided calling publicly for Beijing to retract it, wary of making demands that China is likely to snub. Rather, the U.S. hopes that with enough pressure, China will refrain from strictly enforcing the zone, essentially nullifying it for practical purposes. The East China Sea zone covers more than 600 miles from north to south, above international waters separating China, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. China says all aircraft entering the zone must notify Chinese authorities beforehand or face unspecified defensive measures. The new round of tensions with China comes as the U.S. is striving to increase its own engagement, influence and military presence in Asia, in part as a hedge against Chinas growing power.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Citrus played two games after the holiday at the Dunnellon Thanksgiving Tournament, beating both Ocala St. John and Ocala Forest. The Hurricanes carried that momentum over to Tuesdays match at Seven Rivers Christian, and it showed their defense was the decisive force in their 54-23 girls basketball victory. That was the key, said Citrus coach Dave Hamilton, his team now 7-1, our defense. Were coming together slowly on offense, but as Ive always said, its defense that wins championships. Weve had a hard schedule, we played St. John and Forest last week at the Dunnellon (Thanksgiving) tournament, and we won them both. Seven Rivers wasnt easy, they were a tough opponent, Hamilton continued. We had to come to play tonight, and we did. Im very proud of the girls, we had a nine-girl performance. That was apparent from the start. The Hurricanes used their full-court and half-court trapping defenses to perfection against a very young and inexperienced Seven Rivers team that lost eight seniors and three starters from last seasons squad.

The Panthers won the meet 70-17 in the Lecanto High School cafeteria over the Pirates. It was our opportunity to get back off the holiday and get our competition under our belt, Lecanto coach Bob LeCours said. I came back worrying about their weight. They maintained their weight during Thanksgiving. I am very impressed with these kids. Im so happy about that. The lack of weight gain means the girls are focused on their lifting. That could mean they are serious when they get to the long Christmas vacation. The serious lifters will keep on hitting the weight room because they want that trip to the state meet February in Kissimmee. The Pirate girls surprised their coach by keeping up with their lifting. All my girls, Im proud of them, said Crystal River coach Randy Owens. They did some work on their own on their week off. They did their own thing. I have a very young squad with a lot of freshman. They are increasing at least five pounds a meet. I have seven or eight freshmen girls that are working hard. I have some seniors who are working hard.

PETERSBURG Catcher Ryan Hanigan and reliever Heath Bell are eager to try to help the Tampa Bay Rays get back to the playoffs. Hanigan was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds and Bell from the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade Tuesday. The deal was announced after Hanigan agreed to a $10.75 million, three-year contract that runs through 2016 and includes a club option for 2017. Tampa Bay sent minor league pitcher Justin Choate and a player to be named to the Diamondbacks. Arizona dealt left-hander David Holmberg to Cincinnati. Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman called a Hanigan a tremendously talented defensive catcher who can also help the Rays offensively. He takes a lot of pride in what he does behind the plate and we also like what he can do in the batters box, especially against left-handed pitching, Friedman said. Hes a guy weve had our eye on for a while. and so when we had the opportunity to acquire him, we were aggressive to do so.

Heart, Van Cleef said in a no-nonsense voice. The North Carolina native moved to Citrus County and started attending Lecanto Primary School in the fourth grade. Van Cleef began playing youth soccer about the same time. Van Cleef has played all four years of her prep soccer career for the Panthers, and the program has reaped the benefits of her talents, as she has been an integral part of two District 4A-4 championship titles. More than halfway through the current 2013-14 season, the defender expects to win another district title before her tour of the Lecanto hills is over. I want us to be district champs and hopefully go on from there, Van Cleef said. I think we can do it. Weve really joined together a lot as a team, and I think we can do whatever we put our minds to. As long as we all play together, and as a team, like weve been doing, we should be fine, she added. Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin sees Van Cleefs experience in championship games as a key part of her role on the team, but that isnt all that she brings to the Lady Panthers. She has had the opportunity to play for two district titles and that experience helps, Lattin said.

Woods made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera when he was a 16-year-old junior in high school. Tiger Woods closes chapter on California childhood Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Of all the memories from Tiger Woods roots in Southern California, its easy to overlook the time he made an appearance in the Tournament of Roses parade. OK, so he wasnt the grand marshal. And he had just turned 18. Woods, coming off his first U.S. Amateur title, rode on the Chiropractic Centennial Foundation float that required seven tons of flowers to build. He wasnt the only celebrity on the float on Jan. 2, 1995. Also riding were singer Lee Greenwood, Hall of Fame baseball player Joe Morgan and Olympic champion speedskater Cathy Turner. The majestic float was toward the end of the order, trailed only by the Icelandic Horse Adventure Society and the International House of Pancakes. For sure, there were far greater moments with a golf club in his hand. Woods was only a toddler when he first went head-to-head with Sam Snead. It was only two holes, and Woods made bogey on both of them. Now, he is only four victories from breaking Sneads record for career PGA Tour victories. Woods made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera in the 1992 Nissan Open when he was a 16-yearold junior in high school. He might have made the cut if not for a growth spurt during the week that made the shaft in his driver too short. More on that later. He never won what he often referred to as his hometown event at Riviera. He made up for it by winning five times at Sherwood Country Club, and that doesnt include his win over David Duval at the illustrious Showdown at Sherwood in what amounted to Monday Night Golf. Woods returns to Sherwood this week, in effect closing a chapter on golf in the area he always called home. The Tiger Woods Learning Center, a superb complex that recently received a Golden Bell Award for excellence in education, remains his tie to Southern California. And the Tiger Woods Foundation headquarters will stay in Irvine. But he stopped playing Riviera in 2006 after he narrowly made the cut. The only regular event in California that Woods still plays is in Torrey Pines, a two-hour drive from his hometown of Cypress in Orange County. The only time Los Angeles area golf fans could see him play was the World Challenge, a holiday event that attracts an 18-man field of players from the top 50 in the world. This is the last year at Sherwood. Woods is moving the event to Isleworth, his old home in central Florida. Then, it could be headed to the Bahamas. When he won the Canadian Open in 2000 with that 6-iron out of a bunker and over the water, his late father, Earl, said that day, In every tournament, hell hit shots that people will be talking about for 30 years. One thing is certain Woods leaves a trail of stories behind. Here are some from his time in Southern California.Tiger vs. Slammin SammyWoods was just starting kindergarten when he was invited to join Snead at Calabasas Country Club just north of LA. They played two holes, starting with a par 3. Woods hit into a creek fronting the green, and Snead suggested he just pick it up and drop it. That kind of ticked me off, so I decided to play it out of the water, Woods once recalled. I knocked it on the green and two-putted for my 4.The debutWoods missed his first seven cuts on the PGA Tour, starting with the 1992 Nissan Open in his debut at age 16. He opened with a 72 and was in reasonable shape to make the cut until what his father said was a growth spurt. Woods shot 75 the next day and headed back to high school. I was hitting the ball good the first few days of the week, but then I suddenly outgrew my club shaft, Woods said a year later.The end of RivieraA beautiful afternoon off Sunset Boulevard turned nasty without warning, and Woods was on his back nine at Riviera without rain gear in 2006. He bogeyed two of his last three holes for a 74 to presumably miss the cut until three more players dropped shots coming in and Woods made the cut on the number. He was to be paired Saturday with J.B. Holmes, a big-hitting rookie who had just smashed his way to victory in Phoenix. The next morning, Woods was a no-show. He withdrew because of the flu, and he has not been back to Riviera since.The power moveIt was baking hot in August for the Showdown at Sherwood in 1999, a nationally televised exhibition against David Duval, who had returned to No. 1 in the world. Because it was not an official PGA Tour event, the caddies wore shorts. A PGA Tour rules official ordered them to change into pants. Duvals caddie complied. Woods caddie, Steve Williams, did not. The rules officials made it clear to Williams that if he did not change into trousers, it would be the last time he caddied on the PGA Tour. Woods, listening to this conversation, interrupted by saying, Guess Ill be playing in Europe next year. Williams wore shorts. Woods won the match. And it wasnt long before shorts were approved for caddies on the PGA Tour.

And a lot of that comes from the commitment that she shows, not only during the season, but during the offseason as well. Lattin further believes that Van Cleefs unique dichotomy of being very competitive yet fun and easygoing gives her a strong leadership role on the team. Shes always done that extra bit and shes very competitive, Lattin said. It definitely rubs off on the younger kids because her being a senior they dont want to disappoint her. I think she definitely drives the competitiveness amongst the whole team. Ive gotten to know her very well and those are things that you cherish as a coach, Lattin added.Shes a lot of fun, she works hard but she also likes to have fun. Shes like one of the team clowns and always gets the team laughing. She has a great attitude. Van Cleef also plays competitive soccer for the Gainesville Soccer Alliance and hopes to continue her soccer playing days in college. She plans on majoring in forensic science, with possible designs of attending St. Andrews College, in her birth state of North Carolina, to pursue this goal. Individually, I just want to get better all-around. Take it to the next level, Van Cleef said. Other than soccer, she likes to fish, go camping, and be outside with friends and family. Ever since I was a little kid, like me and my cousins would go out and get into adventures, and I just really like stuff like that, Van Cleef said Van Cleef held Lattin in high regard. I love coach Lattin, as a person and as a coach, Van Cleef said. Shes been with me for four years, so shes more like a second mom to me. Lattin hopes to see the example Van Cleef has set during four years of Lecanto varsity soccer in some of the younger players just starting out in the program. She is going to be missed, Lattin said. Not only by the team but by the coaches; shes a great kid, a special kid. Through Monday, Lecanto is 6-4-1 on the season through the first month of play and seeded second in District 4A-4 behind undefeated Forest. Individual Results 1011. Cheyenne Adkins (L) 75-90-165; 2.

Shonzicohr Brooks (CR) 100-175-275. Hanigan, 33, is expected to become Tampa Bays primary catcher, even though he and Friedman said they wont head into spring training with a preconceived notion. The trade was completed a day after free agent catcher Jose Molina was re-signed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract. Well figure out matchups, well figure out what makes the most sense on any given night, but we feel like he makes our team better, Friedman said. Whether thats 70 games, 80 games, 90 games, 100 games, I dont know yet. Well figure that out as the season gets underway. Bell will be a candidate to become the Rays closer a job held the past two seasons by Fernando Rodney, who is a free agent. For the Diamondbacks, giving up the hard-throwing right-hander was a cost-saving move. The deal saves the team $5.5 million of Bells $9 million salary and Miami is paying the other $3.5 million as part of the threeteam trade in October last year. Arizona general manager Kevin Towers gains flexibility in trying bolster depth and plug holes. Weve still got some bench pieces we need to put together, We still have interest in bringing back Eric Chavez, Towers said, adding that the Diamondbacks also remain in the market for a starting pitcher and perhaps a corner outfielder with power. Hes also excited about the prospects headed for Arizona from Tampa Bay, particularly the player to be named. Someone we value a lot as a prospect, Towers said. Thats not to take anything away from Mr. Choate, but I would say that probably is the key player in the deal. Hanigan is a .262 career hitter who spent the past seven seasons with the Reds. He batted .198 with two homers and 21 RBIs in 75 games in 2013, when he spent two stints on the disabled list one because of a strained left oblique muscle and the other a sprained left wrist. Friedman is confident the catcher is healthy and will return to the really good player hes always been. Hanigan is looking forward to getting to know the pitching staff and play for manager Joe Maddon, whos led the Rays to the playoffs four of the past six seasons. The numbers speak for themselves in terms of the competitiveness of the team year after year. Its a great thing they have going, Hanigan said. Everybody Ive talked to has great things to say about Joe and the organization, the atmosphere they create to compete, Hanigan added. Im just looking forward to helping the team out. Theyve got a lot of young arms. Theyve got a lot of good pitching. Im excited to get to know these guys. Bell, 36, has 168 saves in 10 seasons with the New York Mets, San Diego, Miami and the Diamondbacks. He led the majors with 132 saves for the Padres from 2009-11 and his 166 saves over the past five seasons are third the majors after Jonathan Papelbons 173 and Mariano Riveras 170. Bell was 5-2 with a 4.11 ERA with 15 saves in 69 appearances for the Diamondbacks last season. He will have an opportuinity to win the closers job in Tampa Bay, although Friedman stressed the Rays didnt necessarily acquire him with that in mind. I think I have a shot of winning that job, the ninth-inning job, but I see my role as being to come in to spirng training and show them what I can do, Bell said. They always say I dont run from run from anybody, I dont back down from anybody. I go right after everybody, the reliever added. I kind of feel like I just want to help the team out the best way I can. The Reds traded a catcher they no longer needed for a left-handed pitching prospect. Devin Mesoraco, their first-round draft pick in 2007, emerged as an everyday catcher last season when Hanigan was hurt LIFTContinued from Page B1 that lesson: The Warriors, who had won their first four before losing this one, had 15 turnovers and did not score a point, trailing 16-0 heading into the second. Alexis Zachar scored both their first point a free throw four seconds into the second and her teams first basket with 2:27 left in the half, after Seven Rivers started 0 for 14 from the field. By that time it was 31-5; Zachar scored all eight of her teams first-half points and finished with 14. Obviously Im very disappointed with the result, but were a young team, and we knew there would be bumps in the road, Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer said. And Citrus is a well-coached team and their fast break is very good. They gave us exactly what we expected. Citrus is a better team than we are right now, Dreyer continued. But losing to them on Dec. 3 gives us a lot of time to improve. This is a great opportunity for us to learn what we need to, to get better. While the Hurricanes defense has been consistent all season, the offense has been up and down. It wasnt really tested in this game, not with the defense it forced 24 first-half turnovers and 37 in the game setting the tempo and leading to easy baskets. But Citrus had something else that was sorely missing from the Warriors lineup: depth. Shenelle Toxen, Kiersten Weaver and Shally Morales each scored 12 points to pace the Hurricanes. For now, Seven Rivers has just two reliable scorers in Zachar and Alyssa Gage, and Gage was limited to three points in this game. Once we took their big girl (Zachar) out of the picture, it changed the whole game, Hamilton said. Seven Rivers cant afford to let this outcome bother them. The Warriors travel to play District 2A-3 rival St. John on Thursday in the two teams only regular-season meeting in what could decide the districts top seed. Citrus plays 5A-6 opponent Dunnellon on Thursday. CANESContinued from Page B1 VAN CLEEFContinued from Page B1 RAYSContinued from Page B1

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE HOMOSASSA At 82, Karl Schulz no longer teaches school, but that doesnt mean he has stopped investing in students lives. After 21 years teaching middle school and high school shop classes in California, he moved to Homosassa 15 years ago. I was a business major at San Jose State College until I saw the shop program, he said from his home in the Riverhaven area of Homosassa. I like fixing and building things. He had taken wood shop and metal shop classes in high school and was inspired by his teachers. I also took drafting, which I used when I built my first house, he said. I drew up the plans, dug the foundation, pounded in well over half of all the nails and did the finish electrical work. He actually built two houses, doing much of the work himself. Since retiring he has kept his skills sharp by building and repairing things for the Homosassa Elks Lodge and constructing animal and bird boxes, many for the wildlife park. Schulz said its a shame that not too many students are learning hands-on skills today and that shop programs in schools are dying out for lack of funding. Kids are missing out on a lot of basic skills, he said. They arent learning how to make and fix things, how to think things through and how things work. Although long retired, Schulz still has a heart for kids. When he first moved to Homosassa, he wanted to do something meaningful for students, so he set about establishing a scholarship fund. I used to buy and sell land, and when I first came here I started looking for things to invest in and bought five building lots for $4,000 each, and then sold one of them for $26,000, he said. Schulz donated the remaining three lots to the school district for a scholarship program. The sale netted $76,000 and Schulz sold a building in California and added $24,000, bringing the fund to $100,000. They use the interest for $1,000 scholarships, he said. Its open to any student, but I (stipulated) that its not for the top students, but for kids who come from behind, who make an effort. Schulz also invests in Homosassa Elementary Schools fifth-grade students. At the end of the school year, each student who is moving on to sixth grade gets an envelope with 10 $2 bills and a note from Schulz with instructions to spend one bill now and then one each year, graduate from high school and attend at least two years of college. Two-dollar bills are unusual, so it gets them to think, he said. By the time they spend the last one, they will have had 10 years of school. I tell them, Set your future goals now and always keep them in mind. Keep your grades up, apply for scholarships, get a job, save your money and do what is necessary to prepare for your future. There are usually about 40to 60-fifth grade students at the school each year. Chris Bosse, Homosassa Elementary School principal, said he has never met anyone like Schulz, who literally puts his money where his mouth is. We give out the envelopes as part of our end-ofyearcelebration, he said. We the kids, the parents, everyone think its awesome that someone in the community believes so much in our students success. Schulz said in the old Flash Gordon series there was a character with a huge head, because he had spent so much time thinking that his brain got so big, he said. Today, all kids do is play video games. Theyre all going to have huge thumbs.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline.com NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleRetired shop teacher Karl Schulz still likes working with tools and machines and laments the ebbing away of shop programs in middle and high schools. Nancy Kennedy Staff writer Teaching your children to not compare gifts A sense of entitlement can take away a childs joy when he earns his own way. Help your children earn what they get, and learn the value of being grateful for what they have. When I was 16 my parents gave me a small hatchback car for Christmas. I was so excited, I didnt even wait to open other presents. I jumped in my tiny used car like it was a magic carpet and sped down the ice-laden streets at 4 am. After the Christmas break was over, I proudly drove my little car to school, parked next to my friends Jaguar and locked the doors. When I turned around I saw a group of boys sniggering and pointing at my tiny prize. Whats that Symonds? A jalopy? I was shocked. I knew what it had meant for my parents to buy this car, I was intensely grateful. But their comment instilled shame in me, shame I knew I shouldnt feel. My sister complained because her friends were given brand-new very expensive vehicles for birthdays and Christmas. Every teen wants to be the one with the nicest gift. What I didnt realize was that my parents gave us a great gift. They taught us to work hard for what we wanted and allowed us to feel the true joy of finally achieving a goal, like the joy I felt when I bought my first nice car on my own. Entitlement is rampant today, comparing what you have to what others have, never makes anyone feel happy. So what can we do to teach our children that comparison gets us nowhere fast? Someone will always have more than they do. Be the example. If you have ever said, I wish I had a boat like John. or, Wouldnt it be nice if we could buy a house like that, understand your children are listening to you. They are learning how to feel, and live, from your example. Try instead to make comments like, I am so glad we have this car paid off, and I get the opportunity to learn how to fix it. or, Isnt it nice to make small improvements on our house, one step at a time. Expressing gratitude for what you have can teach your children that more is not better. Sometimes more is simply deeper in debt or Shannon Symonds and Erin Oscarson FamilyShare See GIFTS/ Page C3 Inside:Annual Nutcracker performance planned for Saturday/C6

Being happy when we have enough for our needs teaches children to appreciate life no matter what home they own or car they drive. Have a family economy. Allow your children to earn money, or free time, or even objects through work. Teaching them they have the power to earn certain things, and the work involved, will teach them that everything comes with a price. They will soon learn the price they are willing to pay. I remember when my 7-year-old son wanted a toy, I gave him chores he could do to earn it. It was fairly expensive and took him three months to earn. When he finally took his money to the store and bought the toy, he was ecstatic. A few days later he didnt look very happy. I asked him why. He said, Im not sure this toy was worth the money. I was so happy he was learning value. Allow older children to manage a budget. Teach children that money and lifestyle is earned not an entitlement. Allow them to experience adulthood in a safe environment. One mother took the money she would have spent on school clothes, toys, entertainment and sports and put it in a bank account. She gave each of her children a fake checkbook. When they did chores they earned money. If they spent all their money at the movies and didnt have enough for school clothes she didnt rescue them. She encouraged them to keep a budget and taught them about budgeting. She also let them suffer the natural and logical consequences of breaking that budget. This gave the family many opportunities to discuss entitlement and to appreciate earning their own way. Help your children find a cause. Stepping outside themselves to work for a greater good can have a powerful effect on your children. When your children work hard to collect donations for the local homeless shelter, or raise money for a sick child or hospital, they get to see the gratitude expressed from the receiving party. This will teach your children the power of giving, and serving others. Correct the problem. If you see your child bullying, or teasing another for what they dont have. Stop it. You, the parent, have the power to help your teen see others in an empathetic way. Set the example. If you see someone begging or in need, be aware of what you say and how you respond to them. Parents are the solution to the entitlement epedemic. You can be the change. Take some time this month to help your children understand the poison of comparison, and the blessing of gratitude.

Winter KingdomsExplore Your National Parks In the winter, many of our 401 national parks are transformed into magical lands. In colder areas, animals come out to play, and everything grows peaceful, quiet and sparkling with crystals of snow and ice. The Mini Page talked with a National Park Service ranger to find out more about our national parks in the winter.Winter wonderlands In the north and on the mountains, winter has a dramatic effect. National parks such as Denali in Alaska and Rocky Mountain in Colorado are snowcovered. Although snow and ice may cut off some parks from the rest of the world, many remain open. Trails and campgrounds are less crowded in parks in colder climates. The snow makes it easier to spot tracks from animals such as bobcats and deer. In parks in warmer climates, such as Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, leaves fall off the trees. This allows visitors to gain a clear vision of the landscape and wildlife. In the warmest climates, many parks have their peak, or top, season in the winter. People ock to parks such as the Everglades in Florida to escape the cold. photo courtesy NPSThe Gibbon wolf pack comes out to play in the winter quiet of Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone spreads through parts of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. In 1973, the northern Rocky Mountain wolf was listed as endangered. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service named Yellowstone as an area where wolves could recover. Its efforts were successful, and the wolf is no longer endangered. photo by Schultz, courtesy NPSIn Yellowstone National Park, steam and spray from geysers begin to freeze on the way down. Visitors can hear ice crystals clink as they fall to the ground. photo courtesy NPSDeath Valley National Park in California and Nevada is about 70 degrees on winter days.

On the Web: At the library: Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickWinter Safety Tips Winter visits Some parks close most of their entrances to cars during the winter. For example, in Yellowstone, only one road, on the northern edge, is open after heavy snowfalls. That road is plowed so residents of a nearby town are not stranded. Some park lodges remain open during the winter. Many parks allow people to camp out in the winter, but some of those parks do not camping requires special gear.Staying safe ranger before exploring a park in winter. Learn what routes are safe, and stay with adults. Some areas may close temporarily to protect the land and animals. In the winter, some wildlife and plants may be especially fragile. Take lessons before trying a new skill, such as snowboarding or skiing. In cold-area parks, wear layers of clothes, including warm socks, shoes or boots, gloves or mittens, and hats. Some areas are so cold that you will need to wear special sure to wear proper safety gear for all activities. photo courtesy NPSCross-country skiiers in Acadia National Park in Maine seem to be alone in the winter wilderness.

For example, in the summer, Yellowstone visitors are lucky if they spot one bighorn sheep, but in the winter, visitors might see thousands of them. Animals often come down from the mountains in the winter. In Denali, rangers use sled dogs to travel through the park. Some animals go into hibernation in the winter. This means animals such as bears are usually absent. If you are going wildlife watching, be respectful of the animals, and time, and people can scare animals away from their feeding grounds. This is the animals home, so please dont disturb them.Winter sports Many national parks offer lessons in winter sports, such as snowshoeing. Rangers lead hiking, skiing and other tours. There are different activities in different parks. Visitors can climb mountains, climb ice, ice fish, snowshoe, cross-country ski, downhill ski, snowboard, ice skate, sled, hike, ride with sled dogs and go snowmobiling. In Acadia National Park, visitors can bring their own dogs to skijor (SKIon skis over the ice and snow.Winter celebrations Some national parks have special winter and holiday festivals. For example, Denali has a winter festival that features winter camping demonstrations. Rangers plow the roads deeper into the park so people can explore. Historical sites may put up special holiday decorations. Many parks offer winter skyviewing parties where people can view the night skies through telescopes. In the winter, the air is drier and skies are clearer. People from city lights.photo courtesy NPSThis mountain climber in Denali National Park in Alaska has a prime view of the park.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER4, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Judith Viorst, a novelist and poet, said, Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands and then to eat just one of the pieces. Strength at the bridge table is the capacity to stop an opponent with four good trumps from winning more than one trick with them. However, doing that may require imagination. In todays deal, South is in six hearts. West leads the spade queen. South takes the trick with his ace and cashes the heart ace. Easts spade discard is a bad blow. How can South recover? It is unusual to bid a slam after a single raise, but the South hand has few losers. His three-club rebid was a help-suit game-try. And when North jumped to four hearts to say that he had club assistance, it was a fair gamble for South to bid the slam. There seem to be two unavoidable trump losers. However, if South can get his trump length reduced, he might be able to endplay West. This requires finding the West hand with exactly 3-4-4-2 distribution. Declarer plays a diamond to dummys ace, ruffs a diamond in his hand, cashes the spade king, ruffs his last spade on the board, trumps another diamond, cashes the club ace, leads a club to dummys king, and ruffs the last diamond. Everyone is down to three cards. South retains the king-jack of hearts and a low club. West has three trumps. So, when declarer leads his last club, West is forced to ruff and play away from his heart queen. Six hearts bid and made!

He has two children now. We always have been close, but Im so sad that my daughter-in-law wont let me be a grandmother. Their first year of marriage, they alternated holidays and combined our families. When they had their first child, however, Rhonda said it was too much, and now all holidays are spent with her family. They are wonderful people, but she is not willing to share her toddlers time with her husbands family, including his siblings. I do not get the privilege of babysitting or having the kids over to my house for the day. I am not allowed to pick them up or bring them places. I live nearby, but they never stop over. Rhonda is socially immature, and I believe she is naive as well as selfish. She holds all power and control and is judgmental and unkind. She gives every excuse to avoid us. Her family has tried to reason with her, to no avail. My son is terribly hurt by this and tries his best to include me for a short visit at least once a month. I am grateful, but not satisfied. I am fun-loving, happy, giving, appreciative and accepting. I make the most of whatever time I am allowed. But Rhonda is negative, self-centered and rude and does her best to spoil the visit. Ive tried several times to discuss this with her, have prayed and have shared words of wisdom and scripture, but nothing breaks through. My son prefers to avoid a confrontation. Should I also give up? Grandmother Missing Out Dear Grandmother: How sad that Rhonda denies her children the privilege of knowing all of their grandparents. Would your son be willing to bring the kids to your home for a visit without Rhonda? And if you can manage it, consider inviting the entire family, including Rhondas folks, to your place now and then. We also recommend you work on ways to warm up the relationship with Rhonda. Surely you can find something to admire about her and keep quiet about the rest. We hope, in time, she will realize that what goes around comes around. Dear Annie: My husband and I frequently go out to dinner with several other couples. One of the wives is a vegetarian. Thats fine, but she sometimes makes a scene with the server. She argues about the way things are prepared and accuses the waitstaff of lying. Its become quite embarrassing, and some of our other friends refuse to go out with her anymore. It recently happened again. My husband and I were mortified when she sent her meal back and accused the waiter of giving her the wrong dish. It ruined our night. I think we should say something, but my husband thinks it will ruin the friendship. Any suggestions? Carnivore in Florida Dear Carnivore: It is not unheard of for restaurants to prepare vegetarian meals with chicken broth or beef stock without declaring it. However, it is rude to accuse the waitstaff of lying and cause a scene. We recommend you do a search in your area for vegetarian restaurants when socializing with this couple. Otherwise, let them know you wont be going out to eat with them because it is obviously too stressful.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G11 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS G2Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS The Floral City Heritage Hall Museum is featuring a display about the Seminole Indian presence in the Floral City area and the wars that ensued. There are panels of information, artifacts and a dugout canoe on permanent loan from the Eden Family of Inverness. The exhibit was created by Tom Ritchie, Frank Peters, Bill Metcalfe, Ken and Kate Hughes, Doug Welin and Carl Steelfox. Here is the introduction to the display: The three Seminole Wars of Florida that occurred in the 19th century played a very important role in both the history and development of our state. The First Seminole War occurred in 1818, when U.S. military forces invaded Spanish Florida in order to punish marauding Seminoles, seized territories that were important to U.S. interests, and retrieved escaped slaves (who found refuge there since slavery was illegal under Spanish authority). The Seminoles continued giving safe haven to escaped slaves even after Spanish Florida was transferred to the U.S. in 1821, and this caused strife with the new white settlers attempting to establish plantation-styled, slave-dependent agriculture in Florida. During the first decade of American control of Florida, several treaties and the establishment of a large Seminole reservation failed to stem conflicts over land, resources, trade restrictions and escaped slaves, so in 1830, it was decreed that all Seminoles must be resettled to the Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma). A majority of Seminoles resisted this forced movement and the Second Seminole War began in late December, 1835. This war lasted seven years and ended with more than 3,000 Seminoles relocated to the Indian Territory. However, a small population was allowed to remain in the remote Everglades of South Florida, since it was believed this region was useless and undesirable to white settlers. Unfortunately, even these people were soon pressured with encroachment by white settlers, and another war broke out in 1855. This small, restricted war lasted three years and was concluded when most of the Seminole combatants and their families agreed to leave Florida. Even then, a handful of Seminoles remained behind in hiding and eventually gained formal standing, developing into the present-day Seminole Tribe of Florida. Special to the ChronicleFrank Peters, Floral City Heritage Hall Museum director, looks at some of the artifacts, which are part of the current Seminole Indian display.

G10Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G3 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS Blue Banner Tour of Historic HomesHISTORIC D. A. TOOKE HOUSE 8560 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by William and Janet Weber In 1900 or a year or two before, this house was built for H. D. Bassett, a phosphate mine superintendent. He first served the Black Diamond Mine at New Hope and later served as superin tendent for the Bradley Mine south side of Floral City. A photo from 1934 reveals that the house originally had a wrap-around porch from front to back. But with the popularity of the automobile, the side porch was removed in favor of a porte coche, allowing the auto close proximity to the house. The original free-standing garage remains at the back of the house. During that exterior renovation, battered columns were added across the front of the house to complement the columns on the porte coche. HISTORIC J.T. LOVE HOUSE 8580 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Gregory and Sandra Cross James Thaddeus Love built his house around 1915. He was the grandson of J.P. Formy-Duval, early landowner of what was the original area of town. Current owners have been restoring and rehabilitating the house over the years. Inside, the living room walls reveal the original beaded board and all floors are original. Complementary rehabilitation of the kitchen and bathroom has been accomplished and the house exhibits a fresh coat of paint on its exterior A challenge to the owners has been the large patio addition on the rear of the house made by a previous owner, but the challenge shall be met. When the roofing on the front porch had to be replaced, the owners had rollroofing hand cut to match the main roof. This is only one example of the care taken by many of owners of these historic homes in Floral City. FLORAL CITY CHURCH OF CHRIST 8599 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) This church structure was built in 1945 after being founded as early as 1910 at Cove Bend east of the town and near the river. L. M. Black and Carey Dillinger (who was a cousin of the notorious John Dillinger a most-wanted criminal in the 1920s and 1930s) headed up the building committee. E. Arnold Zellner donated materials from his ranch east of town on Trails End Road. When members of the Whitelaw family came to the Cove Bend area from Tennessee, they were joined by a few members of the Church of Christ who were meeting in the school building there. Those early settlers included the Johnson, Lewis, Peterson and Rooks families. After the Cove Bend school structure was sold, members met in the Floral City Community Building during World War II, while materials were collected for the present construction. Carey Dillinger made wooden pews and the design was so well accepted that other churches in the county requested him to make pews for them. It is one of several buildings in Floral City that was constructed with a basement. The church owns the large lot across the street with a pavilion and this is the area that the church so generously uses to support Floral City Heritage Days annually. FLORAL CITY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 8480 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) In 1884, the Methodist community, led by master builder Geor ge Higgins and assisted by George Robinson, built this gothic vernacular structure. Restrained touches of gothic are seen in the shape and tracery of the church windows. Some original amethyst glass remains. The color was developed as sun hit the glass, which contains manganese. Manganese was obtained from Germany; therefore, when World War I broke out, the American source was cut off and antique glass found today may be dated to that period. This splendid church is considered the focal point for the National Floral City Historic District and is eligible on its own for the National Register of Historic Places. Restoration of the interior and exterior of the building was accomplished in 1992. It was restored to its founding date and contains no electricity. The removal of an addition at the back revealed a lovely bay window behind the pulpit. Two original pews have been retained at the back of the church. From the book, A Time to Remember, the History of the Floral City Methodist Church by Ann Luff, a perspective of the phosphate boom period is given when, in 1891, it was suggested that Sunday was no more than any other day. The mines did not operate, but stores were open all day and delivery wagons ran as usual. That was a shocking scene for many of the day. BERRY HOUSE 8212 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Ann and Bill Covington This home was built in 1883, the same year Floral City was founded. James Fleming, the first postmaster of the town, operated from this building before it was moved in 1893 from the old section of town near Aroostook Way to its present location on the south side of Orange Avenue, west of the U.S. 41 traffic light. The home retains its original two-story style, but the porchover-porch across the front is gone. Other modifications and additions have been made over years. Florida folk artist Polly Bernard was the last owner before current owners Bill and Ann Covington purchased the historic structure. D. A. Tooke HouseHomesfrom Page 9 J.T.

Orange Ave. (no ticket) Master Gardener Amanda Mullen (Only the garden is open, not the house) Perfected with individual vignettes at every turn, The Enchanted Garden best describes the garden at the Historic Griner House. Beyond the limerock driveway and wayside seating area, there lies a fairyland world. Large wooden gates open to many gar den rooms connected by narrow painted-stone paths, each leading to the next. Ancient brick encircles a halfsubmersed swimming pool; an old picnic table dabbled with shades of purple paint sits nearby and off to one side is another seating area, secluded by a mature fringe tree full with seed pods. A short tunnel of vines ends at a hidden painted door leading to yet another garden path. Turn another direction to encounter Cherokee roses climbing the lattice arbor with painted lavender roses on pavers and an inviting bench. Return toward the house and there is a large outdoor room covered entirely with passion vine, bougainvillea and other vines. The stately old camellia bushes form the foundation of this garden. Those and some of the other plants were laid out more than 55 years ago by the gardeners mother, Eva Rae Griner, whose roots ran deep in Floral Citys early days. HISTORIC TOOKE-SPIVEY HOUSE 8532 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Pam Bellman The Tooke family members were early settlers to the Floral City area. Generally, they were farmers and merchants during the phosphate boom period of the area s history. A number of historic houses along Orange Avenue bear the Tooke name. Irwin Tooke and his wife, Billie, were the builders of this home, around 1908. They also built the home across the street, which has been significantly altered. Several variations of this wood-framed, bungalow-style dwelling can be found in the area. This home displays the battered columns typical of the bungalow style. Brick posts support these battered columns. Typical of early homes, the house was built without built-in closets; however, the house retains its original windows, doors and woodwork. As a contributing historic building, the home is within The Floral City Historic District, which was listed in 1993 on the National Register of Historic Places.

Tickets are $10 for all private homes. Tickets may be purchased at any one of the homes with a blue banner in front or at the Information Tent next to the Ferris Grove Sales Store on U.S. 41. The tour is selfguided and entry may begin at any one of the sites. Some historic buildings do not requite a ticket. Most sites are within walking distance. THE W. H. DUNN HOUSE 8050 S. Bedford Road (ticket requir ed) Owned by Harvey and Astrid Dunn This home is located 3/4 mile west of U.S. 41 from the traffic light. Driving to this site is recommended. The phosphate boom of the 1890s to early 1900s is showcased at Floral City Heritage Days. Dur ing this time, one of two major mining companies in Citrus County, the Florida Mutual Mine Company, built this house in 1907, not as a home, but for a field office. It has been described as a place for the owners and stockholders to go when they needed to conduct business in the area. There was a housekeeper or caretaker who lived there and maintained the house. The company owned several mines in the area and the field superintendent for these Floral City mines was William Harvey Dunn, grandfather of the current owner, the Rev. Harvey Dunn. W. H. Dunn came to the region from Alabama and married Nannie L. Hemrick, a Georgia schoolteacher. Some of their children were born at other local mines: the Rev. Dunns father was born at the Ten Cent Mine and three of his aunts were born at the Three Penny Mine. However, the Rev. Dunns twin aunt, Hazel, and uncle, Hampton, were born in this Mutual Mine house. Hampton Dunn is known to Citrus County history buffs as the author of Back Home, a History of Citrus County, Florida, one of two dozen books compiled or authored by Hampton during his colorful life. He has been described as a reporter, author, editor, soldier, historian, preservationist, crusader for traffic safety and that rare individual who is recognized as a hometown hero. He served in World War II as a reporter and was managing editor of Tampa Bay Daily Times and chairman of the board of AAA Auto Club South. In 1916 the house, which had been the Field Office, became the property of W. H. Dunn and the downstairs bedroom now called The Babies Room is where Hampton and his twin sister, Hazel, were born that year. That room includes one of the eight original fireplaces (the house has nine working fireplaces). These are served by only two chimneys because the fireplaces are back-toback and above each other downstairs and upstairs. Grandfather Dunn wired the house in 1916. You will notice some of the old wiring upstairs, where you will see knob-and-tubestyle wiring, the Rev. Dunn said. The original house was sided with board n batten; later, novelty siding was added. After the Rev. Dunn obtained the house in 1973, insulation and vinyl siding were added. In 1928, the roof was changed from a gablestyle to a hip-style roof and that is when the batten was removed and the novelty siding added. John Ogden, a local carpenter, did the work, the Rev. Dunn said. The house has remained in the Dunn family since 1916, although it was vacant for about 20 years before the current owners moved in. Another interesting feature of the house is the fact that the front of the house faces an old abandoned mine road, which existed long before Bedford Road. Therefore, one drives into the property from the back and side of the house, not the front. HISTORIC DUVAL HOUSE 7801 S. Old Floral City Rd. (ticket requir ed) Owned by the Duval Preservation Trust Built in 1866 by John Paul Formy-Duval when he left Ocala after the Civil W ar, the Duval House is the oldest remaining residence in Citrus County. Before the upstairs was completed, he discovered that it was not on his property so he moved a mile west to Duval Island, where he built a similar house. After the Duval family moved out, it had a succession of occupants until the mid-1930s, when it was acquired by the Metz family. The placement of the house on the property is unlike surrounding homes. The front of this house with its porch-over-porch faces the east and the back of the house faces Old Floral City Road. Extensive additions have occurred over the years to the west and south sides of the building. The upstairs of the Duval House was never finished remaining very much as it was in the 1860s and the second story can only be reached from an enclosed stairway opening onto the front porch. There is no access to the upstairs from the interior of the lower floor. Typical of several historic homes in Floral City, the front yard contains a large cistern used to store rainwater which was collected by roof gutters. The house remained in the possession of the Metz family until acquired in early 2012 by the Duval Preservation Trust, which has initiated the restoration project for this important historic building. REID HOUSE 8300 E. Magnolia A ve. (requires ticket) Owned by Brian and Kelli Villio John Duren is credited with building this simple wood-frame venacular-style house, circa 19021907. It was most likely to be used as a boarding house, as it originally had three separate rooms, each with its own entrance of f a porch. This explains the two front doors opening onto such a small porch. A porch on the west side of the house existed until about 1976, when it was enclosed and became a kitchen and a proper indoor bathroom was installed. Corrie T. Roux purchased the home from Duren in 1907 and kept ownership until January 1933, when she traded it to her daughter, Nannie Roux Reid. Nannie moved into this downtown area of Floral City and lived here until she passed away in 1975. Over the next 25 years or so, the house passed through various owners and was generally used as rental property. When Dave and Thelma Noble purchased the home in October 2006, it was in very poor condition and the existing owners had received approval from the Citrus County Historic Resources Advisory Board and permission from the Citrus County Community Development Division to have the house demolished. Along with the help of family, friends, and neighbors in Floral City, the Nobles successfully saved the house and enhanced the property. One of the rooms still has an original cedar tongue and groove wall and flooring. Other rooms in the house have original bead-board walls. While new materials were used to replace some of the damaged areas, as much of the original wood as possible was reworked and saved. The property was sold in July 2013 to Brian and Kelli Villio for use as a private residence. The community is grateful to the Nobles for rescuing one of Floral Citys historic buildings from demolition. FLORAL CITY COMMUNITY BUILDING 8370 E. Orange Ave. (no ticket) Owned by Citrus County Leased by Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. The Floral City Womans Club received a gift of land in 1929 from 10 prominent local businessmen. Around 1933, the club turned over the land deed to the county in exchange for the building of a clubhouse with federal funds under the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Construction was supervised by local builder John Ogden. Due to the numerous abandoned phosphate mines in the area, lime rock became the choice of construction material. The building is one of the 26 contributing buildings within the National Historic District and served as a service club for soldiers during World War II. Until 1996, the building was maintained and operated by a board composed of local organizations. In 1996 the Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. entered into a 30-year lease for the building with the Citrus County Commission and utilizes their building fund to rehabilitate the structure.

When Dave and Thelma Noble purchased the home in October 2006, it was in very poor condition and the existing owners had received approval from the Citrus County Historic Resources Advisory Board and permission from the Citrus County Community Development Division to have the house demolished. Along with the help of family, friends, and neighbors in Floral City, the Nobles successfully saved the house and enhanced the property. One of the rooms still has an original cedar tongue and groove wall and flooring. Other rooms in the house have original bead-board walls. While new materials were used to replace some of the damaged areas, as much of the original wood as possible was reworked and saved. The property was sold in July 2013 to Brian and Kelli Villio for use as a private residence. The community is grateful to the Nobles for rescuing one of Floral Citys historic buildings from demolition. FLORAL CITY COMMUNITY BUILDING 8370 E. Orange Ave. (no ticket) Owned by Citrus County Leased by Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. The Floral City Womans Club received a gift of land in 1929 from 10 prominent local businessmen. Around 1933, the club turned over the land deed to the county in exchange for the building of a clubhouse with federal funds under the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Construction was supervised by local builder John Ogden. Due to the numerous abandoned phosphate mines in the area, lime rock became the choice of construction material. The building is one of the 26 contributing buildings within the National Historic District and served as a service club for soldiers during World War II. Until 1996, the building was maintained and operated by a board composed of local organizations. In 1996 the Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. entered into a 30-year lease for the building with the Citrus County Commission and utilizes their building fund to rehabilitate the structure.

Orange Ave. (no ticket) Master Gardener Amanda Mullen (Only the garden is open, not the house) Perfected with individual vignettes at every turn, The Enchanted Garden best describes the garden at the Historic Griner House. Beyond the limerock driveway and wayside seating area, there lies a fairyland world. Large wooden gates open to many gar den rooms connected by narrow painted-stone paths, each leading to the next. Ancient brick encircles a halfsubmersed swimming pool; an old picnic table dabbled with shades of purple paint sits nearby and off to one side is another seating area, secluded by a mature fringe tree full with seed pods. A short tunnel of vines ends at a hidden painted door leading to yet another garden path. Turn another direction to encounter Cherokee roses climbing the lattice arbor with painted lavender roses on pavers and an inviting bench. Return toward the house and there is a large outdoor room covered entirely with passion vine, bougainvillea and other vines. The stately old camellia bushes form the foundation of this garden. Those and some of the other plants were laid out more than 55 years ago by the gardeners mother, Eva Rae Griner, whose roots ran deep in Floral Citys early days. HISTORIC TOOKE-SPIVEY HOUSE 8532 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Pam Bellman The Tooke family members were early settlers to the Floral City area. Generally, they were farmers and merchants during the phosphate boom period of the area s history. A number of historic houses along Orange Avenue bear the Tooke name. Irwin Tooke and his wife, Billie, were the builders of this home, around 1908. They also built the home across the street, which has been significantly altered. Several variations of this wood-framed, bungalow-style dwelling can be found in the area. This home displays the battered columns typical of the bungalow style. Brick posts support these battered columns. Typical of early homes, the house was built without built-in closets; however, the house retains its original windows, doors and woodwork. As a contributing historic building, the home is within The Floral City Historic District, which was listed in 1993 on the National Register of Historic Places.

A. TOOKE HOUSE 8560 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by William and Janet Weber In 1900 or a year or two before, this house was built for H. D. Bassett, a phosphate mine superintendent. He first served the Black Diamond Mine at New Hope and later served as superin tendent for the Bradley Mine south side of Floral City. A photo from 1934 reveals that the house originally had a wrap-around porch from front to back. But with the popularity of the automobile, the side porch was removed in favor of a porte coche, allowing the auto close proximity to the house. The original free-standing garage remains at the back of the house. During that exterior renovation, battered columns were added across the front of the house to complement the columns on the porte coche. HISTORIC J.T. LOVE HOUSE 8580 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Gregory and Sandra Cross James Thaddeus Love built his house around 1915. He was the grandson of J.P. Formy-Duval, early landowner of what was the original area of town. Current owners have been restoring and rehabilitating the house over the years. Inside, the living room walls reveal the original beaded board and all floors are original. Complementary rehabilitation of the kitchen and bathroom has been accomplished and the house exhibits a fresh coat of paint on its exterior A challenge to the owners has been the large patio addition on the rear of the house made by a previous owner, but the challenge shall be met. When the roofing on the front porch had to be replaced, the owners had rollroofing hand cut to match the main roof. This is only one example of the care taken by many of owners of these historic homes in Floral City. FLORAL CITY CHURCH OF CHRIST 8599 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) This church structure was built in 1945 after being founded as early as 1910 at Cove Bend east of the town and near the river. L. M. Black and Carey Dillinger (who was a cousin of the notorious John Dillinger a most-wanted criminal in the 1920s and 1930s) headed up the building committee. E. Arnold Zellner donated materials from his ranch east of town on Trails End Road. When members of the Whitelaw family came to the Cove Bend area from Tennessee, they were joined by a few members of the Church of Christ who were meeting in the school building there. Those early settlers included the Johnson, Lewis, Peterson and Rooks families. After the Cove Bend school structure was sold, members met in the Floral City Community Building during World War II, while materials were collected for the present construction. Carey Dillinger made wooden pews and the design was so well accepted that other churches in the county requested him to make pews for them. It is one of several buildings in Floral City that was constructed with a basement. The church owns the large lot across the street with a pavilion and this is the area that the church so generously uses to support Floral City Heritage Days annually. FLORAL CITY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 8480 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) In 1884, the Methodist community, led by master builder Geor ge Higgins and assisted by George Robinson, built this gothic vernacular structure. Restrained touches of gothic are seen in the shape and tracery of the church windows. Some original amethyst glass remains. The color was developed as sun hit the glass, which contains manganese. Manganese was obtained from Germany; therefore, when World War I broke out, the American source was cut off and antique glass found today may be dated to that period. This splendid church is considered the focal point for the National Floral City Historic District and is eligible on its own for the National Register of Historic Places. Restoration of the interior and exterior of the building was accomplished in 1992. It was restored to its founding date and contains no electricity. The removal of an addition at the back revealed a lovely bay window behind the pulpit. Two original pews have been retained at the back of the church. From the book, A Time to Remember, the History of the Floral City Methodist Church by Ann Luff, a perspective of the phosphate boom period is given when, in 1891, it was suggested that Sunday was no more than any other day. The mines did not operate, but stores were open all day and delivery wagons ran as usual. That was a shocking scene for many of the day. BERRY HOUSE 8212 E. Orange A ve. (ticket required) Owned by Ann and Bill Covington This home was built in 1883, the same year Floral City was founded. James Fleming, the first postmaster of the town, operated from this building before it was moved in 1893 from the old section of town near Aroostook Way to its present location on the south side of Orange Avenue, west of the U.S. 41 traffic light. The home retains its original two-story style, but the porchover-porch across the front is gone. Other modifications and additions have been made over years. Florida folk artist Polly Bernard was the last owner before current owners Bill and Ann Covington purchased the historic structure. D. A. Tooke HouseHomesfrom Page 9 J.T.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G11 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS G2Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS The Floral City Heritage Hall Museum is featuring a display about the Seminole Indian presence in the Floral City area and the wars that ensued. There are panels of information, artifacts and a dugout canoe on permanent loan from the Eden Family of Inverness. The exhibit was created by Tom Ritchie, Frank Peters, Bill Metcalfe, Ken and Kate Hughes, Doug Welin and Carl Steelfox. Here is the introduction to the display: The three Seminole Wars of Florida that occurred in the 19th century played a very important role in both the history and development of our state. The First Seminole War occurred in 1818, when U.S. military forces invaded Spanish Florida in order to punish marauding Seminoles, seized territories that were important to U.S. interests, and retrieved escaped slaves (who found refuge there since slavery was illegal under Spanish authority). The Seminoles continued giving safe haven to escaped slaves even after Spanish Florida was transferred to the U.S. in 1821, and this caused strife with the new white settlers attempting to establish plantation-styled, slave-dependent agriculture in Florida. During the first decade of American control of Florida, several treaties and the establishment of a large Seminole reservation failed to stem conflicts over land, resources, trade restrictions and escaped slaves, so in 1830, it was decreed that all Seminoles must be resettled to the Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma). A majority of Seminoles resisted this forced movement and the Second Seminole War began in late December, 1835. This war lasted seven years and ended with more than 3,000 Seminoles relocated to the Indian Territory. However, a small population was allowed to remain in the remote Everglades of South Florida, since it was believed this region was useless and undesirable to white settlers. Unfortunately, even these people were soon pressured with encroachment by white settlers, and another war broke out in 1855. This small, restricted war lasted three years and was concluded when most of the Seminole combatants and their families agreed to leave Florida. Even then, a handful of Seminoles remained behind in hiding and eventually gained formal standing, developing into the present-day Seminole Tribe of Florida. Special to the ChronicleFrank Peters, Floral City Heritage Hall Museum director, looks at some of the artifacts, which are part of the current Seminole Indian display.

Toddler drowns in InvernessCitrus County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to 9121 E. Tsala Apopka Drive in Inverness on Tuesday in reference to a missing toddler. Upon arrival, deputies discovered 3-year-old Tristan Costello had been pulled from the water near the residence. They began CPR immediately and Tristan was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital where he was pronounced dead. Sheriffs detectives are investigating to determine what happened.Car pulled from water off OzelloOn Sunday, sheriffs deputies responded to North Pirate Point in Ozello in reference to a submerged vehicle. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the body of a 67-year-old Homosassa woman was inside the vehicle, a white Ford Escort. Friends of the victim who had seen her earlier that day stated she indicated that she was moving out of the home where she was staying. According to a family member, she suffered from depression and was antisocial. One friend recalled her commenting about a year ago that she wasnt happy and wanted to drive her car into the river. Although the exact cause of death has not been determined by the medical examiners office, it is suspected that the victim committed suicide. At this time, no foul play is suspected, although detectives continue to investigate. Its the Chronicles practice not to publish names of the deceased in cases suspected to be suicide.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Four Citrus County Sheriffs deputies lost their jobs during the past couple of weeks three resigned while facing the possibility of being fired for falsifying documents and a fourth was fired outright for what Commander Buddy Grant called gross misconduct for interactions involving an 18-year-old woman. Deputies Charles Schanel, Thomas Peruche and Chad Doyle all resigned Nov. 22 after a Citrus County Sheriffs Office internal affairs investigation revealed that the three, independent of each other, falsified paperwork for offduty work they did not perform. Meanwhile, Deputy Thomas Matos was fired Nov. 24 after a similar internal investigation concluded he committed gross violations including untruthfulness, willful disregard of duties, dissemination of internal agency information and moral character involving his conduct with a young woman. Matos firing came on the heels of repeated warnings last summer about his relationship with the young woman. In August, Matos agency shirt was found by other deputies who were conducting a security check on the womans car late one night at Bicentennial Park. When Matos was reportedly confronted about it, he said he loaned the uniform shirt to the woman to dry off two nights earlier after she was found only in her undergarments, after hours, swimming at Bicentennial Park pool. Grant said the investigation of Matos revealed several conflicting accounts of his interactions with the woman, including sharing internal agency email information Four lose jobs with sheriffs office Three deputies resign, one fired in separate cases of reported misconduct See DEPUTIES/ Page A5 AMANDAMAUGHAN CorrespondentLECANTOWhat God hath joined together, let no man put asunder. On a winters day in 1943, Marvin and Grayce stood in the chapel of Albright College and heard those immortal words. On Dec 4., the couple will celebrate seven decades together as husband and wife. For Marvin and Grayce Weibley, this is a precious milestone. Both in their early 90s, the Pennsylvania natives recall the first time they met: It was at a church barbecue in Shillington, Pa. Marvin had accompanied his cousin and was sitting alone on the sidelines. I looked over and saw him sitting there, and I knew he was a visitor, said Grayce. So, I went over and asked him if he would like to have a hot dog, and he said that would be nice. They began chatting, and a twoyear courtship followed. It all started over a hot dog, Marvin said with a smile. While they were dating, Marvin worked as an apprentice for Westinghouse Electric Company in Philadelphia, and Grayce worked in Reading. On the weekends, he drove home to see her. She explained that one weekend, he showed up with a ring. When she asked him what it meant, Marvin shied away from declaring it an engagement ring. Weeks passed and she was still uncertain if they were engaged. Grayce said, Finally, one day he said, OK, when is your birthday? When you are 22, well get married. The day after her 22nd birthday, the couple walked down the aisle. It was a modest wedding, Seven-decade journey MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleMarvin and Grayce Weibley will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary today.

Bitterness over court battles from the investors last attempt to develop in Yankeetown was obvious at Mondays council workshop. Nonetheless, representatives gave an upbeat presentation on a new development concept for two riverfront sites owned by the investors. Attorney Joe Gaynor from Clearwater explained the ownership of the property has been restructured, with three of the former investors stepping in to take over when the property went into foreclosure. Gaynor said they are not developers, but investors, and once the project is entitled receives the necessary planning and zoning they will seek a developer. He said it would probably be built in phases, using a model home to see what the market dictates. Our concept is there is something that could be developed on that property, which in fact would be in the interest of the community, he said. What we looked at is what we thought would fit the needs of the developer and the community and be marketable in the current economy. My clients sort of inherited this, he said.

Associated PressLONGWOOD A woman was injured in an encounter with a bear while walking her dog, and wildlife officers set up a trap Tuesday to try to capture the animal, officials said. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said in a news release that Susan Chalfant was hurt Monday evening in the Orlando suburb of Longwood. Chalfant was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment and her condition wasnt immediately available. The dog wasnt injured. A neighbor on a 911 call said Chalfant was bleeding from the head. Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were patrolling the neighborhood where Chalfant was hurt and set up a trap in the yard where the bear was last seen. Florida has had a series of recent sightings of bears in urban or suburban settings when they are usually on the hunt for food in garbage cans. Special to the ChronicleNinety-one marijuana plants were recovered Monday from a house at 914 West Keller St. in Citrus Hills. ChronicleAfter receiving information on possible suspicious activity at a house in Citrus Hills, a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy investigated Monday and noticed a broken well in the front yard of 914 West Keller St. that was gushing water into the street. After looking around the residence, Deputy Robert Williams noticed suspicious pipes coming out of the side of the house, according to the sheriffs office. Williams contacted Detective Aidan Marshall of the Tactical Impact Unit (TIU) for assistance. Marshall responded to the scene and found probable cause for a search warrant. Once TIU arrived on scene and entered the residence, they found the house had been converted into a large-scale marijuana grow operation. Three bedrooms were converted to rooms to grow marijuana. After assessing the scene, detectives noticed the house was being powered by stolen electricity. Duke Energy responded to the scene to investigate the meter. Ninety-one plants were recovered, with half reaching mid-level growth with plants 4 feet tall. The plants were not ready to be harvested or sold. The residents were not home and no arrests were made. The investigation is ongoing. Those with any information regarding this case are asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Citrus County. You can remain anonymous.

TallahasseeTeachers earn good marks on evaluationsNearly 98 percent of Floridas classroom teachers are effective or highly effective according to ratings released by state officials. The ratings released Tuesday are part of the states contentious evaluation system that was first passed by state legislators two years ago. Only 306 teachers out of nearly 190,000 across the state were given unsatisfactory rankings. This years ratings are very similar to ones released in 2012. But the scores varied widely among districts. Some districts reported they had as many as eight times the number of highly effective teachers as other districts. When asked about the discrepancy, state education officials said local districts have flexibility over deciding how to evaluate teachers. The evaluations have come under fire, because part of the evaluations is based on test scores. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Nativity scene on display in state Capitol Shotgun shack chic Floral City woman restores historic homeCHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS The vintage cottage had seen better days. But now its days are better than ever in its century of existence, and its new owner would like to know its secrets. When this one came up for sale, we said, Ah, thats historic. Lets jump on that, said Diane Calfee, new owner of the small house on Lake Street that she has refurbished. Its historic, although we have modernized it. It was actually a shotgun house. In order for it to be a vacation rental, we had to alter it. We built two closets and we made that hallway. Calfee, who moved to Floral City six years ago, said she and her husband love living in a rural county and a small-town community. They are members of the Citrus County Historical Society and active with such events as Floral City Heritage Days, which starts Friday evening. With an interest in county history, Calfee would like to learn more about the house on Lake Street. Im trying to research it, Calfee said. Id like to find out who owned it or if anything happened here. The old house now boasts modern comforts with vintage charm. The original shotgun house, where one room opens onto another without hallways, built in the early years of the 20th century, now has hallways and closets. These old houses didnt have closets. You didnt have anywhere to put anything, Calfee explained. She added a second full bathroom to make a two-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The original back porchalreadywas enclosed when Calfee bought the house, so she turned it into a dining room off the kitchen. The passageway was spacious enough to fit in a laundry alcove of a washer and dryer behind folding doors. Outside, she added a porch with rocking chairs, a picket fence and landscaping. It had been shored up underneath and it had a new roof, Calfee said in describing the condition of the house, which had sat vacant for some time before it was sold. We had to put complete air conditioning in.We had to put the flooring in.A lot of plumbing, a lot of electrical. We had some great contractors. The contractors have Calfees husband, Dudley Calfee, general manager of Ferris Farms in Floral City, as a regular customer. The original kitchen and bathroom cabinets were updated with a blue shade of paint and new vintage-looking knobs. I tried to decorate in what I call French country, Calfee said. Everything in here has been previously loved. Buying foreclosures and fixing them up for resale is part of Calfees business background. This time, the house was not a foreclosure. Calfee bought it as an investment property and, for the first time, she got to furnish and decorate it. Ive had a great time, Calfee said. I can tell you where every vintage shop is. I have shopped just about daily. A lot of the furniture is older. We have some antiques in here. The dining room and living room both boast a chandelier and the living room also contains an antique pump organ. This is going to be a rental and you can get a rental that has regular furniture, Calfee said. I wanted this to have interesting things in it, like the little chandeliers. We tried to stay with the old pictures. A lot of them are French advertisements. Calfee seeks to appeal to tourists who like the small-town life and outdoor activities offered around Inverness. We love this area because when I advertise this as a rental, they can walk downtown, Calfee said. The bike trail is three blocks away. They can walk down to the farmers market. They can walk to restaurants. Were in our cars too much anyway. When Im on vacation I would like to go to a town. We just got back from St. Augustine. There, you park your car and you just walk everywhere. And I like that. I like that Ive been able to purchase in an area thats close enough to do that. Although the house is a rental property, Calfee has stamped it with her own identity. This is our house, Calfee said. We can still enjoy it and have have fun with it and buy little antiques for it, but let others enjoy it, too. Kathy Turner-Thompson, the countys historical resources officer, told the Chroniclethat the house likely was built for employees of the Hanbury Lumber Company that operated a private logging railroad in the early 20th century. Calfee asked that anyone with information call her at 813-967-5580.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-5642916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. ChronicleOne of the joys of Christmas is the music. On Sunday, Dec. 8, Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church presents the Marion Civic Chorale and The Sounds of Christmas. This free concert is part of the Light Shine humanities program, sponsored by Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church in Lecanto, the Florida Humanities Council and theCitrus CountyChronicle. This will be their third time with us, and they always draw a huge crowd when they perform, said George Krueger, member of Shepherd of the Hills. Were hoping many people from the community will attend. Music selections include Vivaldis Gloria, What Sweeter Music, I Saw Three Ships, Still, Still, Still and Ring Out Ye Bells. The chorale is made up of some 50-plus singers, soloists from South Florida, a pianist, plus four other instruments, Krueger said. The church is at 2540 W. Norvell Bryant Highway, Lecanto.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A private group placed a Nativity scene in the Florida state Capitol on Tuesday in an event that included prayers, children singing Christmas carols and a celebration of Jesus birth. Up next, the atheists get their say. The Capitol rotunda is open to any group that applies through the state Department of Management Services as long as their displays follow guidelines on size and other restrictions. The Florida Nativity Scene Committee decided to use that opportunity to display the biblical scene of Jesus birth. We are not trying to offend anyone, but we are taking a stand for Christ in Christmas, a stand for truth and religious freedom, said Pam Olsen, who organized the event. And what better place to do this than the heart of our state government. American Civil Liberties Union of Florida executive director Howard Simon immediately thought of two better places. They may now have a right to do that, but there are better places, Simon said. There are houses of worship and there are each of our homes if we choose to commemorate the holidays. Samuel Voran, 19 months old, points to a Christmas Nativity scene installed Tuesday in the Florida Capitol, the first Nativity scene in decades inside the rotunda.Associated Press

TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Wednesday, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2013. There are 27 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On Dec. 4, 1619, a group of settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County, Virginia, where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. (Some suggest this was the true first Thanksgiving in America, ahead of the Pilgrims arrival in Massachusetts.) On this date: In 1783, Gen. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army officers at Fraunces Tavern in New York. In 1945, the Senate approved U.S. participation in the United Nations by a vote of 65-7. In 1991, Associated Press correspondent Terry Anderson, the longest held of the Western hostages in Lebanon, was released after nearly seven years in captivity. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush scrapped import tariffs hed imposed earlier to help the battered U.S. steel industry. Five years ago: U.S. automakers drew fresh skepticism from lawmakers during a Senate Banking Committee hearing over their pleas for an expanded $34 billion rescue package they said was needed for them to survive. One year ago: A homeless man, Naeem Davis, was taken into custody in New York City in the death of a man whod been pushed in front of a subway train; Davis would be charged with second-degree murder. Todays Birthdays: Game show host Wink Martindale is 80. Actor Jeff Bridges is 64. Actress Marisa Tomei is 49. Actor-comedian Fred Armisen is 47. Rapper Jay-Z is 44. Actress-model Tyra Banks is 40. Country singer Lila McCann is 32. Thought for Today: Theres much to be said for challenging fate instead of ducking behind it.

The U.S. attorneys office in Atlanta said Tuesday that Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis faces two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors said Davis, whos 33, was indicted by a federal grand jury Nov. 19. Prosecutors say Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found to have a gun on Sept. 12. and was found to have a different gun in his possession two days later, on Sept. 14. Prosecutors said he acted erratically and threatened people on both occasions.Stewart picked for NASCAR coverDAYTONA BEACH Tony Stewart smoked the field in a fan vote and will grace the cover of the NASCAR video game. Stewarts fan base seemed to rally around the injured driver, who missed the final months of the season after breaking his right leg in an Aug. 5 sprint car crash. Stewart, the three-time Sprint Cup champion, took 69 percent of the vote in the final round to defeat Jeff Gordon. During the five-week contest conducted on Facebook, Stewart dominated each round of the competition. He won nearly one-fifth of the more than 700,000 votes. He has appeared on the cover twice before, but this is the first time he was selected by fans. NASCAR is scheduled for release in early 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.Bob Dylan charged with hate speechPARIS French authorities have filed preliminary charges against Bob Dylan over a 2012 interview in which he is quoted comparing Croatians to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. The charges of public insult and inciting hate were filed against the musician in midNovember, Paris prosecutors office spokeswoman Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre said Tuesday. They stem from a lawsuit by a Croatian community group in France over remarks in an interview in Rolling Stone magazine in September 2012. Speaking about race relations in the United States, Dylan was quoted as saying: If you got a slave master or Klan in your blood, blacks can sense that. That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood.

about deputies being warned to stay away from her. Matos reportedly even shared information with the woman about the location of agency patrol personnel. Grant said when he told Matos to refrain from contact with the woman, Matos immediately contacted the woman following that conversation. Matos worked less than four years with the agency. I think it sends a strong message that unprofessional conduct, especially around the safety of our personnel, will not be tolerated, Grant said. If your personal wants and desires are more important than your work, you dont have a place in this agency. Meanwhile, Grant said Schanel, Peruche and Doyle basically violated agency policy by submitting documents for offduty security work that they didnt do. We found internally that they were getting dual compensation. They would be working a shift for the agency, but then would fill out an activity log saying they were also working, for example, at Pine Ridge when in fact they did not work the detail, Grant said. He said work details, such as those entered into by homeowners associations and deputies for offduty work, often dont involve regular reporting or monitoring. Grant said deputies are given activity forms to log what they did during those details. The three deputies patently violated standard operating procedures by lying about working when they clearly didnt, Grant said. He said one of the deputies drove his mother to the doctors office when he claimed he was working. It comes down to credibility. How am I supposed to trust someone who falsified documents and stole from the agency and others after they get paid for work they didnt do? Grant said. How can anyone believe them if they go to court to testify, after they did what they did? Schanel is a 13-year veteran of the agency, while Peruche and Doyle are fiveand nine-year veterans respectively. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy also weighed in on the conduct of the officers Tuesday. This is an embarrassment to me, my employees, this agency and to the citizens we serve, Dawsy said. Although I would like to say officer misconduct will never happen again, I cant guarantee that. I can guarantee, however, that we will continue to selfpolice and we will continue to follow through with comprehensive internal affairs investigations just like we did here. The four deputies had been under investigation for several months. Grant said the first three were investigated after a supervisor alerted officials about discrepancies in log activities. Then we decided to do a full audit of all details, Grant said. He said a lot of deputies are involved in off-duty work, and that going forward, the agency will now conduct audits. past plan was very grandiose. The proposed project is for 60 units on two parcels totaling 7.7 acres. The larger site, 5.28 acres, would have three eightunit buildings and four four-unit buildings. They would be a maximum of 40 feet tall, two stories built over one level of parking. There would be 30 boat slips on the river. There would be an onsite package plant for sewage. The plant would serve both sites and the effluent would be pumped to an offsite spray field on other property owned by the investors. The second site, 2.42 acres, would have one eight-unit building and three four-unit buildings. They would all be two stories, built over parking spaces with 17 boat slips. The proposed units would be about 750 square feet with a kitchen, not designed for full-time tenants, but rather to attract people who would stay for a few weeks. There is a very residential scale to the project, said Cynthia Tarapani, planning consultant for the investors. Residents queued up to voice concerns and raise questions. The 40-foot buildings would require new fire equipment, which the county would have to purchase, said Jack Schofield. We do not have a big enough fire department. Jean Holbrook had concerns on the environmental impacts and adverse affect on the towns character. Other residents had issues with road maintenance, boat traffic, the proposed sewage treatment, manatee safety, parking for boat trailers and especially the density. Several residents brought up the previous lawsuits and insisted any new development meet current town standards. It would need at least a dozen changes to the comp plan and would go to the voters, said city attorney Ralf Brookes. He suggested they possibly have another meeting. This was to see what they had, he said. It was not a formal submission. He asked they go back and refine it before they go to the next step. Were open to suggestions, said Gaynor. I hope we can prove to the city that we can do something thats good for both of us. It may be impossible and we just put it up for auction. with a small gathering of friends and family. A dinner was held at a hotel in Reading after the ceremony. Then we went back to our apartment in Darby and the next day back to work, Grayce said. Sadly, the couple never had a honeymoon. The country was at war and the prospect of taking a vacation was impractical. You had to work seven days a week. So we really couldnt get a week or two weeks honeymoon, Marvin said. Everything was rationed. To get extra gasoline was almost impossible. Having completed the apprenticeship program, Marvin was no longer exempt from the draft. The newlyweds had been married for just six months when he entered the Marines. Stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., with the rank of corporal, Marvin trained dogs in the K-9 Corps. To be near her husband, Grayce got a job at the quartermaster depot. The day I found out that I was pregnant was the day he got his orders to ship to the Pacific, said Grayce. Expecting her first child and having a husband fighting overseas, she found strength in prayer. I just prayed and hoped for the best. God is in control and the whatevers are in His hands, not mine. Her prayers were answered, and Marvin returned home safely. He resumed his employment with Westinghouse and the two raised a family. Marvin Jr. was born in 1945 and their daughter, Gayle, arrived in 1950. As the children were growing up, Grayce worked outside the home. She was an assistant principal at Penncrest High School, and a secretary at The Bartol Research Foundation, a science foundation that drew physicists from around the globe. My mother was a secretary to these 60 physicists, and she used to type up all of their theses. It was a big deal, and she was not able to talk about it, daughter Gayle said. After being employed there for several years, a heart attack forced Grayce to quit. She directed her energy toward writing and found fulfillment in authoring hundreds of inspirational articles, some of which appeared in Guideposts Magazine and Billy Grahams Decision Magazine. Marvin retired from Westinghouse after 44 years. The Weibleys moved around quite a bit, but eventually settled in Citrus County nine years ago. They are active members of Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church and enjoy spending time with friends. Suzanne Panarisi is a neighbor who has known Marvin and Grayce for roughly eight years. We became friends very quickly, she said. They are wonderful, loving, caring people. When you think of their anniversary and all the years theyve been together its just unbelievable! The couple celebrated their anniversary early while visiting Gayle and her husband, David, in California. The two-week trip was topped off by dinner at the historic Cliff House in San Francisco. We were able to sit out in the middle of the mountain, and the waterfalls, and have dinner. The food was exquisite and the ambiance was special, said Gayle. It was really a memorable night. In 70 years of marriage, the Weibleys have experienced both blessings and tragedies. The loss of their son, Marvin Jr., and the untimely death of their only grandchild, Wendy, are painful memories. To couples, Grayce offered this advice: God gives you the grace to do what you have to do. And no, its not always a bed of roses, but theres usually a life lesson you can learn from every difficult situation. With this outlook, the Weibleys look toward the future knowing that whatever life brings, they will face it together.

Charles Schirmer State students below global peers in math, science Associated PressMIAMI Florida teens scored lower than their international peers in math and science and about the same in reading, results from a global test released Tuesday show. Overall, the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment shows U.S. students continuing to stagnate in math, reading and science while students in places like Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore top the rankings in every subject. The average U.S. 15year-old student scored lower than the international average and about average in science and reading. The problem is not that our 15-year-olds are performing worse today than before, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Tuesday in announcing the results with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the Parisbased organization that develops and administers the PISA exam. The problem is theyre simply not making progress. Angel Gurria, secretary general of the OECD, said the results come at a crucial time. The ongoing economic crisis has only increased the urgency of developing peoples skills, both in the education system and in and for the workplace, he said. Florida was one of three states to get statespecific results. The other two states were Massachusetts and Connecticut. All three opted to have separate samples of public school student performance in order to get the state-level scores. Students in Florida scored an average of 467 on a 1,000-point scale in math, lower than the international average of 494 and U.S. average of 481. Both Massachusetts and Connecticut scored higher, with averages of 514 and 506, respectively. In science, Florida students scored an average of 485 points, lower than the international average of 501 but about the same as other students in the U.S. Again, both Massachusetts and Connecticut saw higher averages of 527 and 521. Reading scores for Florida students were about the same as both the international and U.S. averages. Despite the comparatively lower Florida scores, state education officials said students have shown improvement in recent years.

Houston said a ban on open alcohol could remedy complaints registered by area residents. I think this will handle a lot of the noise problems and cut some of the congestion, he said. The city council is expected to consider the ordinance in January. The Three Sisters Springs working group, a spinoff of the citys waterfronts advisory board, convened in June to address problems related to the ever-increasing overcrowding issue at the popular springs. Group members include homeowners, a sheriffs captain, a tour boat operator and representatives of state and federal governments. Former Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge manager Michael Lusk was named to the group; interim manager Andrew Gude attended Tuesdays meeting in city hall. Group members also discussed the need of county, state and federal agencies to coordinate enforcement. We try to get out there as much as we can, Citrus County Sheriffs Capt. Danny Linhart said. Gude noted that his agencys enforcement is often limited to manatee harassment. Im not sure my guys can enforce non-federal laws in non-federal waters, he said. Houston said he would meet with agency representatives to determine enforcement duties. Other group recommendations to the city council included establishing a mooring field in the canal outside Three Sisters Springs to reduce congestion. The mooring field would be a floating cable system with metal pilings. Approval of a mooring field would be required by the Department of Environmental Protection. Group members said a mooring field would ensure canal access to property owners who now say boats block the channel.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER4, 2013 A7 000GRQY Sunshine For Your Loved One Our Story + Your Story = 311 NE 4th Ave. Crystal River Assisted Living Facility Lic. # 12230 www.sgwseniors.com (352) 563-0235 Our compassionate staff is ready to help.

Interestrates 000GS8Z Stocks sink as US consumer spending worries deepen Associated PressNEW YORK After eight weeks of gains, maybe the stock market pullback long anticipated by investors has arrived. Stocks fell Tuesday, dragged lower by the Detroit automakers and consumer-focused companies such as GameStop and Amazon.com. The market could be headed for its first weekly decline since early October, putting at risk a remarkable rally that has sent indexes to record highs. The declines do not come as a surprise to large investors, many of whom have been predicting a pullback. The S&P 500 has surged 26 percent this year, on track for its best year since the dot-com bull market of the late 1990s. Stocks cannot go straight up all the time. For stocks to pause, decline or even enter a correction, a Wall Street term for when an index falls 10 percent or more, would all be considered normal after eight straight weeks of gains. The markets may have stalled out here, but that must be taken in the context of what has been a great year, said Alec Young, global equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 94.15 points, or 0.6 percent, to 15,914.62. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 5.75 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,795.15 and the Nasdaq composite fell 8.06 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,037.20. Companies that depend heavily on consumer spending had some of the biggest losses. GameStop, the video game retailer, sank $1.02, or 2 percent, to $45.95, one of the worst declines in the S&P 500 index. Amazon.com fell $7.64, or 2 percent, to $384.66. Automakers fell. General Motors lost 97 cents, or 3 percent, to $38.14 and Ford fell 50 cents, or 3 percent, to $16.56, despite what auto industry analysts considered mostly positive sales reports for November. The sell-off auto stocks cams as a surprise to industry analysts. Chrysler said sales rose 16 percent in November compared with a year ago, while GM and Fords sales increased 14 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Overall, the industry reported a 9 percent year-over-year sales gain. Investors are waiting for several economic reports later this week that could influence whether the Fed will pare back its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program, which is designed to keep interest rates low and stimulate the economy. When you look at how markets have performed this year, some investors may have decided to cash in, put their feet up and drink eggnog, said Lawrence Creatura, a portfolio manager with Federated Investors. On Friday, the government will release its monthly job market survey, one of the most closely watched indicators of the U.S. economy. Economists expect that employers created 180,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate remained steady at 7.2 percent, according to FactSet, a financial information provider. price-earnings ratios to rise, so corporate 1,400 2,000 2013 2014 J F M A M J J A S O N D 1,426.19 1,795.15 25.9% Wall Street strategists expect the change p p rice-earnin g s ratios to rise, so cor po o rate 2,000 20 2 0 1 .9% 1,795.15 4 14 c h an ge 1,400 M M J 1,426.19 N S J all Street strate g ists exp e W e ct the BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Employers step in to prevent worker burnoutLONDON Volkswagen turns off some employees' email 30 minutes after their shifts end. Goldman Sachs is urging junior staff to take weekends off. BMW is planning new rules that will keep workers from being contacted after hours. This surge in corporate beneficence isn't an indication that employers are becoming kinder and gentler: It's about the bottom line. After years in which the ease of instant communication via email and smartphones allowed bosses to place greater and greater demands on white-collar workers, some companies are beginning to set limits, recognizing that successful employees must be able to escape from work.Americans turn to mobile devices for Cyber MondayNEW YORK Power up and shop. Millions of Americans logged on to e-commerce sites Monday to take advantage of deals ranging from free shipping to hundreds of dollars off electronics and half-price clothing on what was expected to be the busiest Internet shopping day of the year. And many of those purchases were made using mobile devices. The spending surge associated with Cyber Monday came after a disappointing Thanksgiving holiday weekend in stores. It also showed that shoppers are increasingly comfortable buying on tablets and smartphones.Holiday weekend gives a boost to auto salesDETROIT Americans proved last month that they're head over heels about small sport utility vehicles. They also wanted to buy more than just video game consoles and bigscreen TVs on Black Friday. November auto sales rose 9 percent above a year ago, with a solid piece of the gains coming over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Sales ran at an annual pace of 16.4 million cars and trucks last month, the best in almost seven years. The numbers gave further evidence that the small SUV is replacing the car as the vehicle of choice for families and aging baby boomers.From wire reports

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 Pleased with Kenney running againWe are citizens of Citrus County and are pleased to note that Commissioner JJ Kenney is running for commissioner for District 2. We intend to vote for him in the upcoming election. Here is why: When first elected, he did not enter that office with any preconceived ideas of what that office entailed. Rather, he took time to learn the goals and needs of that office prior to any action on his part. Nor did he seek that office for any kind of vengeance against fellow commissioners. For the record, Mr. Kenney did not serve his country in a highly paid income tax-free position as a foreign contractor overseas. He served his country as a U.S. Marine in Vietnam. I encourage my fellow veterans and citizens to cast their vote for his re-election.Neville Anderson Inverness GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. We reach an American landmark on Friday that will be noted by few and celebrated by none. It is the 40th anniversary of the confirmation of Gerald R. Ford as vice president. On the surface theres little reason to mark the ascension of anyone to a position that John Adams, the first man to occupy the vice presidency, described with some accuracy as the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived. There have been 47 vice presidents, and it would be surprising if you could name a quarter of them. Theres even less reason to note this occasion for a man such as Ford, one of 14 vice presidents to become president. For those who ascended, their most significant moments were in the White House, not in the humble vice-presidential cubbyholes where presidents tucked them away so they wouldnt be a nuisance. That said, the vice presidency and presidency of Gerald Ford stand apart. He was the first vice president to move to the post under the 25th amendment, which provides for a president to fill a vacancy in the vice presidency and for that nominee to be confirmed by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. Only Ford and his own vice president, Nelson A. Rockefeller, have become vice president by that route. Ford A Norman Rockwell painting come to life, in the words of George H.W. Bush at Fords funeral was also the first president to gain the office without a direct vote of the people, a condition he noted in his very first address as chief executive when he asked Americans to confirm me as your president with your prayers. Ford became vice president at the height of perhaps the greatest constitutional crisis in American history. President Richard M. Nixon was on the defensive about Watergate, his impeachment not just possible but likely, his vice president, Spiro T. Agnew, having already resigned amid corruption charges. The country was reeling; Washington was in upheaval. The nation needed a vice president, but even more it needed a sense of stability. On Oct. 12, 1973, the telephone rang in the Ford home in Alexandria, Va. Dad, said Susan Ford, then 16, the White House is calling. Two hours later, Ford was at the executive mansion for the nationally televised announcement of his nomination as vice president. None of this was entirely a surprise. Ford, then the House minority leader, had been asked to collect names of possible vice presidents from House members. The final tally was kept by Rose Mary Woods, Nixons executive assistant. Ford got 80 votes. The next closest was Rockefeller, with 35. Nixon knew Ford, the two having met on the Michigan congressmans first day in Washington in 1949. And Nixon was comfortable with him, though the broader situation, without precedent in American history, was one of immense discomfort for both men. Ford was chosen because he was confirmable, says Joel Goldstein, a St. Louis University Law School expert on the vice presidency. But he set a high standard for the vice presidency. The evening that Ford was introduced as the presidents selection, Nixon described the next vice president as someone who had served 25 years with distinction. Everyone in the East Room Washingtons grandees, with a decidedly Republican tint knew by midsentence who that was. Every member of the crowd stood and cheered. The very next day, Rep. Gerald R. Ford of Michigans fifth congressional district marched for the 25th time in the Red Flannel Day parade in Cedar Springs, Mich. The vice-presidential confirmation hearings were pro forma but no breeze. Sen. Claiborne Pell, the Rhode Island Democrat, asked if congressional leaders would have ready access to the new vice president. Ive had an opendoor policy as minority leader, Ford said. He was asked whether he thought Nixon would survive. I think so, he said. Its going to take a lot of help from a lot of people. In truth, Ford dreaded what might happen, and he understood that if he succeeded Nixon he would have to deal with more than simply the fallout of Watergate. There was an economic crisis, continued conflict in Vietnam, uncertainty overseas, a lack of public trust in government. Early in August 1974, White House chief of staff Alexander M. Haig called Ford and asked if he were ready to assume the presidency in a short period of time. Fords answer: If it happens, Al, I am prepared. A week later in the Oval Office, Nixon told Ford: Jerry, you will become president. I know you will do a good job. Ford answered: Mr. President, you know I am saddened by this circumstance. You know I would have wished it to be otherwise. I was hoping you could continue. Under the circumstances, I think your decision (to resign) is the right one. He added: I am ready to do the job, and I think I am fully qualified to do it. The meeting between Nixon and Ford lasted one hour and 10 minutes. It was agonizing. Ford just wanted to be out of that room, away from the awkwardness that had overwhelmed both men. The silence of the car awaiting him outside the White House provided a great refuge. In his first days as president, Ford displayed perfect pitch. I have not campaigned either for the presidency or the vice presidency, he said upon taking office. I am indebted to no man and only to one woman my dear wife as I begin this very difficult job. Later, the pardon of Nixon took some of the luster off the new president, though many historians now believe Ford was right to rid himself and the presidency of such a monumental distraction. Even so, his was a presidency where routine ruled, which, given the circumstances, was a substantial achievement. His accomplishments, former newsman and Ford domestic policy adviser James Cannon wrote in a biography published this spring, were methodically achieved by steadiness and common sense. It was the lack of drama that marked Fords life and his administration. Seldom has routine been so remarkable. In historys mirror, Fords presidency is bigger than it appeared at the time.David M.

Whod have thought the conservative voice of Southwest Florida would get popped in a cocaine sting in Washington, D.C.? Not Gov. Rick Scott. Not Florida Republican Party Chairman Lenny Curry. Not state Attorney General Pam Bondi. They and other party leaders wisely are telling freshman U.S. Rep. Radel to resign. As other Republicans gear up their candidacies, Rep. Radel isnt likely to get many calls asking for his endorsement. Theres something about living to a higher ethical standard be it fact or fiction thats expected of those we send to the nations Capitol. Party lines are irrelevant when it comes to poor personal decisions and substance abuse. In the end, Republicans, Democrats and people of all party affiliations are human and, as such, are flawed and vulnerable. One thing that makes Rep. Radels particular situation hypocritical, though, is his support of drug testing food stamp beneficiaries. Since elected officials are on the public dole, they should be the first to be subjected to drug testing. Funny that they dont see it that way. So now this congressman who had strong support from tea party conservatives has pleaded guilty to buying 3 1/2 grams of coke. He is taking a leave of absence from Congress and undergoing rehabilitation. While rehab is a positive albeit predictable step, Rep. Radel needs to do the right thing: resign. If and when he squares away his drug problem and works through the family-related consequences of his actions, he could go on to do great things. Right now, though, the right thing is to exit Congress. Under the Integrity heading of his website, heres what then-candidate Trey Radel had to say: Ive been consistently talking about conservative values and the problems in Washington on TV and on 92.5 FOX News radio for years. Ive also bought, run and sold businesses in Southwest Florida then a few months ago, duty called. My heart told me that when my little son Jude was grown up, I had to be able to tell him Your Father didnt just talk about it. He did something about it. Rep. Radel has brought discredit to his reputation and his office. Its time he did something about it. THE ISSUE:Congressmans cocaine arrest.OUR OPINION:Trey Radel should heed partys call for resignation.

LETTERSto the Editor A question of constitutionalityThe Nov. 19 Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting was opened by Clerk of the Court Angela Vick. On the dais was chairman of the board Joe Meek. Also, there was the first vice chairman of the board, JJ Kenney, along with the second vice chairman of the board, Rebecca Bays. All these are elected members of the board and appeared to be of sound mind and body. It was noted several times during the early portions of the meeting that it was without a chairman due to the apparent expiration of the entire leadership of the board and no action could be taken. This is basically saying at some point in time that the county was without leadership and due to rules of sequencing Vick was required to run the government and open the meeting. I would charge that Vicks first order of business should have been to return the county government to its proper order of leadership. I believe Meek should have opened the meeting stating his term of leadership is expiring while requesting nominations for the next term. Upon the election of new leadership, an oath of office should have been administered by Vick. There appears to be a weakness in this process. Maybe a staggering of the terms of office for the chairman, first vice chair and second vice chair are in order to allow the smooth flow of governing our county is not jeopardized.Herbert H. Adams DunnellonTurn off those cellphonesI just want to say I am sick and tired everywhere I go of hearing peoples cellphones go off and then their loud conversations. It is very disturbing and rude when you are in church, movies, restaurants and just about everywhere else that cellphones go off. I like to enjoy my restaurant meal without listening to someones conversation. I think when they are in a public place they need to turn that cellphone off just to be considerate of others. Enough is enough! When driving, how can you be on a cellphone and text at the same time unless you want to meet your maker? You also may take another life texting. So why not be kind and turn the cellphone off when you are in a public place? Unless youre a doctor, or it is an emergency, would be the only time to leave it on. Other than that, please be considerate of others and leave it off or on vibrate. I hope this message gets across to those who couldnt care less about others around them.

Associated PressWASHINGTON To say that new academic standards have yielded strange bedfellows would be an understatement. Republican-onRepublican infighting? Teacher unions linking arms with tea partiers? President Barack Obama working in tandem with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and energy giant Exxon? When it comes to CommonCore, forget the old allegiances. Traditionally Democratic-leaning groups dont like the standardized tests and are finding allies among small-government conservatives. The Obama administration wants more students leaving high school ready for college courses or their first jobs, a goal shared by big corporations. The standards, adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, essentially exchanged state-by-state benchmarks for one uniform guide about what skills a student should have at each grade level. For instance: all third-graders should know how to find the perimeter of a shape. How an educator at the front of a classroom teaches that is up to each school. Look at two potential contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Says Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal: We need Louisiana standards, not Washington, D.C., standards. Counters former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: If youre comfortable with mediocrity, fine. Im not. Both see their education records as a political asset. Each has placed a bet on whether the standards keep enraging small-government activists or whether they fade by the time Iowa and New Hampshire start the nominating process. Democrats arent spared the intra-party strife, either. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said critics of the standards engage in political silliness. The head of the American Federation of Teachers, meanwhile, compares the implementation of the standards to the rollout of the federal health care law. You think the Obamacare implementation is bad? said Randi Weingarten, who supports the standards goals but has been vocal about the role of testing. The implementation of the CommonCore is far worse. Such divisions are as common as unusual alliances. Obama is getting a hand from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent $36 million to help Republican candidates in 2012. For the chamber, the nations largest business coalition, a skilled and educated workforce is good for the bottom line. There have been efforts to roll back the standards at statehouses in Florida, Missouri, Ohio and Pennsylvania. And several states are revisiting the decision to partner with other states to develop tests.

The Metro-North Railroad commuter train was traveling Sunday at 82 mph as it approached a 30 mph zone and jumped the tracks along a sharp curve. Four passengers died. The National Transportation Safety Board said investigators havent found any evidence of brake trouble during the trains nine previous stops and no problems with track signals. NTSB member Earl Weener said Tuesday there were no anomalies. The rail employees union said veteran engineer William Rockefeller was injured in the wreck and has cooperated with investigators. It said the NTSB investigation will show there was no criminal intent with the operation of his train. But Gov.

Police in Pennsylvania are investigating a complaint concerning a ghost hunt that went bust after a police officer mistakenly thought it was a burglary in progress. The Gettysburg Times reported Tuesday that the Thanksgiving night ghost tour ended with two tourists and their guide being detained at gunpoint. A patrolman passing a closed store in Gettysburg said he saw flashlights inside, so he went in and handcuffed and searched the three ghost hunters. Police called the owner, who confirmed the tour operator had permission to use the allegedly haunted Civil War-era building. The first Union general killed in the Battle of Gettysburg was brought to the building after being fatally wounded.In your face, selfie! Science also top wordNEW YORK Look alive, selfie.

Judge: Irish police colluded in IRA murderLONDON Irish police colluded in the 1989 murder of two senior Northern Ireland police officers by the Irish Republican Army, a judge-led inquiry found Tuesday. The inquiry looked into the circumstances around the death of Harry Breen and Bob Buchanan, who were ambushed and shot by militants in March 1989 in south Armagh. The two officers, who werent armed, were attacked when they were crossing the border into Northern Ireland shortly after a meeting in an Irish police station in the town of Dundalk. In a report, Judge Peter Smithwick, who has spent the past eight years gathering evidence on whether the militants received help in ambushing the two officers, said he was satisfied there was collusion in the murders. Smithwick concluded that the timing of the murders suggested that the information to trigger the IRA operation was likely leaked from the Dundalk police station, although he didnt put the blame on any individual. Tuesdays report was the first time that Ireland has confirmed the longtime suspicion among Northern Irelands Protestant majority that Irish police colluded with the IRA. Breen and Buchanan were the two highest-ranking Northern Ireland police officers to be murdered by the IRAs dominant faction, the Provisionals, which killed nearly 300 police as part of the underground armys failed 1970-1997 campaign to force Northern Ireland out of the U.K.French report: No proof Arafat was poisonedPARIS Extensive reports by French scientists into Palestinian leader Yasser Arafats death have ruled out poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow said Tuesday. The results contradict earlier findings by a Swiss lab, and mean its still unclear how Arafat died nine years ago. Scientists from several countries have tried to determine whether polonium played a role in his death in a French military hospital in 2004. Palestinians have long suspected Israel of poisoning him, which Israel denies. After a 2012 report that traces of radioactive polonium were found on Arafats clothing, Arafats widow filed a legal complaint in France seeking an investigation into whether he was murdered. As part of that investigation, French investigators sought Arafats remains exhumed and ordered genetic, toxicology, medical, anatomical and radiation tests on them. Suha Arafat and her lawyers were notified Tuesday of the results. She told reporters in Paris that they exclude the possibility of poisoning by polonium, a rare and extremely lethal substance. World BRIEFS From wire reports Judge clears way for Detroit bankruptcy Associated PressDETROIT Detroit is eligible to shed billions of dollars of debt that accumulated during the citys decades-long decline, including cutting pensions for thousands of workers and retirees, a judge ruled Tuesday in a decision that shifts the epic bankruptcy case into a new and delicate phase. Judge Steven Rhodes, who wondered aloud why the bankruptcy had not happened years ago, said pensions can be altered just like any contract because the Michigan Constitution does not offer bulletproof protection for employee benefits. But he signaled a desire for a measured approach and warned city officials that they must be prepared to defend any deep reductions. This once proud and prosperous city cant pay its debts. Its insolvent, Rhodes said in formally granting Detroit the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. At the same time, it also has an opportunity for a fresh start. The ruling came more than four months after Detroit filed for Chapter 9 protection. Rhodes agreed with unions and pension funds that the citys emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, had not negotiated in good faith in the weeks ahead of the July filing, a key condition under federal law. But he said the number of creditors more than 100,000 and a wide array of competing interests probably made that impossible. Detroit could have and should have filed for bankruptcy long before it did. Perhaps years, the judge said. The decision set the stage for officials to confront $18 billion in debt with a plan that might pay creditors just pennies on the dollar and is sure to include touchy negotiations over the pensions of about 23,000 retirees and 9,000 workers. Orr says pension funds are short by $3.5 billion. Rhodes promised that he would not lightly or casually sign off on just any cuts. Associated PressFormer Florida Gov.

Associated PressU.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe smile together Tuesday during a joint press conference following their meeting at Abes official residence in Tokyo. Biden voiced strong opposition Tuesday to Chinas new air defense zone above a set of disputed islands, showing a united front with an anxious Japan as tension in the region simmered. For Biden in China, tense reunion with Xi Jinping Associated PressTOKYO In what was supposed to be a warm reunion, Vice President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet instead today in a climate fraught with tension over an airspace dispute that has put Asia on edge. A day before seeing Xi, Biden stood in Japan and publicly rebuked China for trying to enforce its will on its neighbors, escalating the risk of a potentially dangerous accident. Although Biden had hoped to focus on areas of cooperation as the U.S. seeks an expanded Asia footprint, Chinas declaration of a new air defense zone above disputed islands in the East China Sea has pitted the U.S. and China against each other, creating a wide gulf that Biden will seek to bridge during his two-day trip to Beijing. Despite Washingtons preference not to get involved in a territorial spat, concerns that Chinas action could portend a broader effort to assert its dominance in the region has drawn in the U.S., putting Biden in the middle as he jets from Japan to China to South Korea on a weeklong tour of Asia. We, the United States, are deeply concerned by the attempt to unilaterally change the status quo in the East China Sea, Biden said after meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. This action has raised regional tensions and increased the risk of accidents and miscalculation. To that end, Biden said he would raise those concerns with Chinas leaders with great specificity during his Beijing visit. Although the U.S. has repeatedly said it rejects the zone, Biden has avoided calling publicly for Beijing to retract it, wary of making demands that China is likely to snub. Rather, the U.S. hopes that with enough pressure, China will refrain from strictly enforcing the zone, essentially nullifying it for practical purposes. The East China Sea zone covers more than 600 miles from north to south, above international waters separating China, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. China says all aircraft entering the zone must notify Chinese authorities beforehand or face unspecified defensive measures. The new round of tensions with China comes as the U.S. is striving to increase its own engagement, influence and military presence in Asia, in part as a hedge against Chinas growing power.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Citrus played two games after the holiday at the Dunnellon Thanksgiving Tournament, beating both Ocala St. John and Ocala Forest. The Hurricanes carried that momentum over to Tuesdays match at Seven Rivers Christian, and it showed their defense was the decisive force in their 54-23 girls basketball victory. That was the key, said Citrus coach Dave Hamilton, his team now 7-1, our defense. Were coming together slowly on offense, but as Ive always said, its defense that wins championships. Weve had a hard schedule, we played St. John and Forest last week at the Dunnellon (Thanksgiving) tournament, and we won them both. Seven Rivers wasnt easy, they were a tough opponent, Hamilton continued. We had to come to play tonight, and we did. Im very proud of the girls, we had a nine-girl performance.

It was our opportunity to get back off the holiday and get our competition under our belt, Lecanto coach Bob LeCours said. I came back worrying about their weight.

PETERSBURG Catcher Ryan Hanigan and reliever Heath Bell are eager to try to help the Tampa Bay Rays get back to the playoffs. Hanigan was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds and Bell from the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade Tuesday. The deal was announced after Hanigan agreed to a $10.75 million, three-year contract that runs through 2016 and includes a club option for 2017. Tampa Bay sent minor league pitcher Justin Choate and a player to be named to the Diamondbacks. Arizona dealt left-hander David Holmberg to Cincinnati. Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman called a Hanigan a tremendously talented defensive catcher who can also help the Rays offensively. He takes a lot of pride in what he does behind the plate and we also like what he can do in the batters box, especially against left-handed pitching, Friedman said. Hes a guy weve had our eye on for a while. and so when we had the opportunity to acquire him, we were aggressive to do so.

Heart, Van Cleef said in a no-nonsense voice. The North Carolina native moved to Citrus County and started attending Lecanto Primary School in the fourth grade. Van Cleef began playing youth soccer about the same time. Van Cleef has played all four years of her prep soccer career for the Panthers, and the program has reaped the benefits of her talents, as she has been an integral part of two District 4A-4 championship titles. More than halfway through the current 2013-14 season, the defender expects to win another district title before her tour of the Lecanto hills is over. I want us to be district champs and hopefully go on from there, Van Cleef said. I think we can do it. Weve really joined together a lot as a team, and I think we can do whatever we put our minds to. As long as we all play together, and as a team, like weve been doing, we should be fine, she added. Lecanto head coach Roselle Lattin sees Van Cleefs experience in championship games as a key part of her role on the team, but that isnt all that she brings to the Lady Panthers.

Woods made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera when he was a 16-year-old junior in high school. Tiger Woods closes chapter on California childhood Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Of all the memories from Tiger Woods roots in Southern California, its easy to overlook the time he made an appearance in the Tournament of Roses parade. OK, so he wasnt the grand marshal. And he had just turned 18. Woods, coming off his first U.S. Amateur title, rode on the Chiropractic Centennial Foundation float that required seven tons of flowers to build. He wasnt the only celebrity on the float on Jan. 2, 1995. Also riding were singer Lee Greenwood, Hall of Fame baseball player Joe Morgan and Olympic champion speedskater Cathy Turner. The majestic float was toward the end of the order, trailed only by the Icelandic Horse Adventure Society and the International House of Pancakes. For sure, there were far greater moments with a golf club in his hand. Woods was only a toddler when he first went head-to-head with Sam Snead. It was only two holes, and Woods made bogey on both of them. Now, he is only four victories from breaking Sneads record for career PGA Tour victories. Woods made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera in the 1992 Nissan Open when he was a 16-yearold junior in high school. He might have made the cut if not for a growth spurt during the week that made the shaft in his driver too short. More on that later. He never won what he often referred to as his hometown event at Riviera. He made up for it by winning five times at Sherwood Country Club, and that doesnt include his win over David Duval at the illustrious Showdown at Sherwood in what amounted to Monday Night Golf. Woods returns to Sherwood this week, in effect closing a chapter on golf in the area he always called home. The Tiger Woods Learning Center, a superb complex that recently received a Golden Bell Award for excellence in education, remains his tie to Southern California. And the Tiger Woods Foundation headquarters will stay in Irvine. But he stopped playing Riviera in 2006 after he narrowly made the cut. The only regular event in California that Woods still plays is in Torrey Pines, a two-hour drive from his hometown of Cypress in Orange County. The only time Los Angeles area golf fans could see him play was the World Challenge, a holiday event that attracts an 18-man field of players from the top 50 in the world. This is the last year at Sherwood. Woods is moving the event to Isleworth, his old home in central Florida. Then, it could be headed to the Bahamas. When he won the Canadian Open in 2000 with that 6-iron out of a bunker and over the water, his late father, Earl, said that day, In every tournament, hell hit shots that people will be talking about for 30 years. One thing is certain Woods leaves a trail of stories behind. Here are some from his time in Southern California.Tiger vs. Slammin SammyWoods was just starting kindergarten when he was invited to join Snead at Calabasas Country Club just north of LA. They played two holes, starting with a par 3. Woods hit into a creek fronting the green, and Snead suggested he just pick it up and drop it. That kind of ticked me off, so I decided to play it out of the water, Woods once recalled. I knocked it on the green and two-putted for my 4.The debutWoods missed his first seven cuts on the PGA Tour, starting with the 1992 Nissan Open in his debut at age 16. He opened with a 72 and was in reasonable shape to make the cut until what his father said was a growth spurt. Woods shot 75 the next day and headed back to high school. I was hitting the ball good the first few days of the week, but then I suddenly outgrew my club shaft, Woods said a year later.The end of RivieraA beautiful afternoon off Sunset Boulevard turned nasty without warning, and Woods was on his back nine at Riviera without rain gear in 2006. He bogeyed two of his last three holes for a 74 to presumably miss the cut until three more players dropped shots coming in and Woods made the cut on the number. He was to be paired Saturday with J.B. Holmes, a big-hitting rookie who had just smashed his way to victory in Phoenix. The next morning, Woods was a no-show. He withdrew because of the flu, and he has not been back to Riviera since.The power moveIt was baking hot in August for the Showdown at Sherwood in 1999, a nationally televised exhibition against David Duval, who had returned to No. 1 in the world. Because it was not an official PGA Tour event, the caddies wore shorts. A PGA Tour rules official ordered them to change into pants. Duvals caddie complied. Woods caddie, Steve Williams, did not. The rules officials made it clear to Williams that if he did not change into trousers, it would be the last time he caddied on the PGA Tour. Woods, listening to this conversation, interrupted by saying, Guess Ill be playing in Europe next year. Williams wore shorts. Woods won the match. And it wasnt long before shorts were approved for caddies on the PGA Tour.

And a lot of that comes from the commitment that she shows, not only during the season, but during the offseason as well. Lattin further believes that Van Cleefs unique dichotomy of being very competitive yet fun and easygoing gives her a strong leadership role on the team. Shes always done that extra bit and shes very competitive, Lattin said. It definitely rubs off on the younger kids because her being a senior they dont want to disappoint her. I think she definitely drives the competitiveness amongst the whole team. Ive gotten to know her very well and those are things that you cherish as a coach, Lattin added.Shes a lot of fun, she works hard but she also likes to have fun. Shes like one of the team clowns and always gets the team laughing. She has a great attitude. Van Cleef also plays competitive soccer for the Gainesville Soccer Alliance and hopes to continue her soccer playing days in college. She plans on majoring in forensic science, with possible designs of attending St. Andrews College, in her birth state of North Carolina, to pursue this goal. Individually, I just want to get better all-around. Take it to the next level, Van Cleef said. Other than soccer, she likes to fish, go camping, and be outside with friends and family. Ever since I was a little kid, like me and my cousins would go out and get into adventures, and I just really like stuff like that, Van Cleef said Van Cleef held Lattin in high regard. I love coach Lattin, as a person and as a coach, Van Cleef said. Shes been with me for four years, so shes more like a second mom to me. Lattin hopes to see the example Van Cleef has set during four years of Lecanto varsity soccer in some of the younger players just starting out in the program. She is going to be missed, Lattin said. Not only by the team but by the coaches; shes a great kid, a special kid. Through Monday, Lecanto is 6-4-1 on the season through the first month of play and seeded second in District 4A-4 behind undefeated Forest. Individual Results 1011. Cheyenne Adkins (L) 75-90-165; 2.

The trade was completed a day after free agent catcher Jose Molina was re-signed to a $4.5 million, two-year contract. Well figure out matchups, well figure out what makes the most sense on any given night, but we feel like he makes our team better, Friedman said. Whether thats 70 games, 80 games, 90 games, 100 games, I dont know yet. Well figure that out as the season gets underway. Bell will be a candidate to become the Rays closer a job held the past two seasons by Fernando Rodney, who is a free agent. For the Diamondbacks, giving up the hard-throwing right-hander was a cost-saving move. The deal saves the team $5.5 million of Bells $9 million salary and Miami is paying the other $3.5 million as part of the threeteam trade in October last year. Arizona general manager Kevin Towers gains flexibility in trying bolster depth and plug holes. Weve still got some bench pieces we need to put together, We still have interest in bringing back Eric Chavez, Towers said, adding that the Diamondbacks also remain in the market for a starting pitcher and perhaps a corner outfielder with power. Hes also excited about the prospects headed for Arizona from Tampa Bay, particularly the player to be named. Someone we value a lot as a prospect, Towers said. Thats not to take anything away from Mr. Choate, but I would say that probably is the key player in the deal. Hanigan is a .262 career hitter who spent the past seven seasons with the Reds. He batted .198 with two homers and 21 RBIs in 75 games in 2013, when he spent two stints on the disabled list one because of a strained left oblique muscle and the other a sprained left wrist. Friedman is confident the catcher is healthy and will return to the really good player hes always been. Hanigan is looking forward to getting to know the pitching staff and play for manager Joe Maddon, whos led the Rays to the playoffs four of the past six seasons. The numbers speak for themselves in terms of the competitiveness of the team year after year. Its a great thing they have going, Hanigan said. Everybody Ive talked to has great things to say about Joe and the organization, the atmosphere they create to compete, Hanigan added. Im just looking forward to helping the team out. Theyve got a lot of young arms. Theyve got a lot of good pitching. Im excited to get to know these guys. Bell, 36, has 168 saves in 10 seasons with the New York Mets, San Diego, Miami and the Diamondbacks. He led the majors with 132 saves for the Padres from 2009-11 and his 166 saves over the past five seasons are third the majors after Jonathan Papelbons 173 and Mariano Riveras 170. Bell was 5-2 with a 4.11 ERA with 15 saves in 69 appearances for the Diamondbacks last season. He will have an opportuinity to win the closers job in Tampa Bay, although Friedman stressed the Rays didnt necessarily acquire him with that in mind. I think I have a shot of winning that job, the ninth-inning job, but I see my role as being to come in to spirng training and show them what I can do, Bell said. They always say I dont run from run from anybody, I dont back down from anybody. I go right after everybody, the reliever added. I kind of feel like I just want to help the team out the best way I can. The Reds traded a catcher they no longer needed for a left-handed pitching prospect. Devin Mesoraco, their first-round draft pick in 2007, emerged as an everyday catcher last season when Hanigan was hurt LIFTContinued from Page B1 that lesson: The Warriors, who had won their first four before losing this one, had 15 turnovers and did not score a point, trailing 16-0 heading into the second. Alexis Zachar scored both their first point a free throw four seconds into the second and her teams first basket with 2:27 left in the half, after Seven Rivers started 0 for 14 from the field. By that time it was 31-5; Zachar scored all eight of her teams first-half points and finished with 14. Obviously Im very disappointed with the result, but were a young team, and we knew there would be bumps in the road, Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer said. And Citrus is a well-coached team and their fast break is very good. They gave us exactly what we expected. Citrus is a better team than we are right now, Dreyer continued. But losing to them on Dec. 3 gives us a lot of time to improve. This is a great opportunity for us to learn what we need to, to get better. While the Hurricanes defense has been consistent all season, the offense has been up and down. It wasnt really tested in this game, not with the defense it forced 24 first-half turnovers and 37 in the game setting the tempo and leading to easy baskets. But Citrus had something else that was sorely missing from the Warriors lineup: depth. Shenelle Toxen, Kiersten Weaver and Shally Morales each scored 12 points to pace the Hurricanes. For now, Seven Rivers has just two reliable scorers in Zachar and Alyssa Gage, and Gage was limited to three points in this game. Once we took their big girl (Zachar) out of the picture, it changed the whole game, Hamilton said. Seven Rivers cant afford to let this outcome bother them. The Warriors travel to play District 2A-3 rival St. John on Thursday in the two teams only regular-season meeting in what could decide the districts top seed. Citrus plays 5A-6 opponent Dunnellon on Thursday. CANESContinued from Page B1 VAN CLEEFContinued from Page B1 RAYSContinued from Page B1

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE HOMOSASSA At 82, Karl Schulz no longer teaches school, but that doesnt mean he has stopped investing in students lives. After 21 years teaching middle school and high school shop classes in California, he moved to Homosassa 15 years ago. I was a business major at San Jose State College until I saw the shop program, he said from his home in the Riverhaven area of Homosassa. I like fixing and building things. He had taken wood shop and metal shop classes in high school and was inspired by his teachers. I also took drafting, which I used when I built my first house, he said. I drew up the plans, dug the foundation, pounded in well over half of all the nails and did the finish electrical work. He actually built two houses, doing much of the work himself. Since retiring he has kept his skills sharp by building and repairing things for the Homosassa Elks Lodge and constructing animal and bird boxes, many for the wildlife park. Schulz said its a shame that not too many students are learning hands-on skills today and that shop programs in schools are dying out for lack of funding. Kids are missing out on a lot of basic skills, he said. They arent learning how to make and fix things, how to think things through and how things work. Although long retired, Schulz still has a heart for kids. When he first moved to Homosassa, he wanted to do something meaningful for students, so he set about establishing a scholarship fund. I used to buy and sell land, and when I first came here I started looking for things to invest in and bought five building lots for $4,000 each, and then sold one of them for $26,000, he said. Schulz donated the remaining three lots to the school district for a scholarship program. The sale netted $76,000 and Schulz sold a building in California and added $24,000, bringing the fund to $100,000. They use the interest for $1,000 scholarships, he said. Its open to any student, but I (stipulated) that its not for the top students, but for kids who come from behind, who make an effort. Schulz also invests in Homosassa Elementary Schools fifth-grade students. At the end of the school year, each student who is moving on to sixth grade gets an envelope with 10 $2 bills and a note from Schulz with instructions to spend one bill now and then one each year, graduate from high school and attend at least two years of college. Two-dollar bills are unusual, so it gets them to think, he said. By the time they spend the last one, they will have had 10 years of school. I tell them, Set your future goals now and always keep them in mind. Keep your grades up, apply for scholarships, get a job, save your money and do what is necessary to prepare for your future. There are usually about 40to 60-fifth grade students at the school each year. Chris Bosse, Homosassa Elementary School principal, said he has never met anyone like Schulz, who literally puts his money where his mouth is. We give out the envelopes as part of our end-ofyearcelebration, he said. We the kids, the parents, everyone think its awesome that someone in the community believes so much in our students success. Schulz said in the old Flash Gordon series there was a character with a huge head, because he had spent so much time thinking that his brain got so big, he said. Today, all kids do is play video games. Theyre all going to have huge thumbs.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline.com NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleRetired shop teacher Karl Schulz still likes working with tools and machines and laments the ebbing away of shop programs in middle and high schools. Nancy Kennedy Staff writer Teaching your children to not compare gifts A sense of entitlement can take away a childs joy when he earns his own way. Help your children earn what they get, and learn the value of being grateful for what they have. When I was 16 my parents gave me a small hatchback car for Christmas. I was so excited, I didnt even wait to open other presents. I jumped in my tiny used car like it was a magic carpet and sped down the ice-laden streets at 4 am. After the Christmas break was over, I proudly drove my little car to school, parked next to my friends Jaguar and locked the doors. When I turned around I saw a group of boys sniggering and pointing at my tiny prize. Whats that Symonds? A jalopy? I was shocked. I knew what it had meant for my parents to buy this car, I was intensely grateful. But their comment instilled shame in me, shame I knew I shouldnt feel. My sister complained because her friends were given brand-new very expensive vehicles for birthdays and Christmas. Every teen wants to be the one with the nicest gift. What I didnt realize was that my parents gave us a great gift. They taught us to work hard for what we wanted and allowed us to feel the true joy of finally achieving a goal, like the joy I felt when I bought my first nice car on my own. Entitlement is rampant today, comparing what you have to what others have, never makes anyone feel happy. So what can we do to teach our children that comparison gets us nowhere fast? Someone will always have more than they do. Be the example. If you have ever said, I wish I had a boat like John. or, Wouldnt it be nice if we could buy a house like that, understand your children are listening to you. They are learning how to feel, and live, from your example. Try instead to make comments like, I am so glad we have this car paid off, and I get the opportunity to learn how to fix it. or, Isnt it nice to make small improvements on our house, one step at a time. Expressing gratitude for what you have can teach your children that more is not better. Sometimes more is simply deeper in debt or Shannon Symonds and Erin Oscarson FamilyShare See GIFTS/ Page C3 Inside:Annual Nutcracker performance planned for Saturday/C6

Being happy when we have enough for our needs teaches children to appreciate life no matter what home they own or car they drive. Have a family economy. Allow your children to earn money, or free time, or even objects through work. Teaching them they have the power to earn certain things, and the work involved, will teach them that everything comes with a price. They will soon learn the price they are willing to pay. I remember when my 7-year-old son wanted a toy, I gave him chores he could do to earn it. It was fairly expensive and took him three months to earn. When he finally took his money to the store and bought the toy, he was ecstatic. A few days later he didnt look very happy. I asked him why. He said, Im not sure this toy was worth the money. I was so happy he was learning value. Allow older children to manage a budget. Teach children that money and lifestyle is earned not an entitlement. Allow them to experience adulthood in a safe environment. One mother took the money she would have spent on school clothes, toys, entertainment and sports and put it in a bank account. She gave each of her children a fake checkbook. When they did chores they earned money. If they spent all their money at the movies and didnt have enough for school clothes she didnt rescue them. She encouraged them to keep a budget and taught them about budgeting. She also let them suffer the natural and logical consequences of breaking that budget. This gave the family many opportunities to discuss entitlement and to appreciate earning their own way. Help your children find a cause. Stepping outside themselves to work for a greater good can have a powerful effect on your children. When your children work hard to collect donations for the local homeless shelter, or raise money for a sick child or hospital, they get to see the gratitude expressed from the receiving party. This will teach your children the power of giving, and serving others. Correct the problem. If you see your child bullying, or teasing another for what they dont have. Stop it. You, the parent, have the power to help your teen see others in an empathetic way. Set the example. If you see someone begging or in need, be aware of what you say and how you respond to them. Parents are the solution to the entitlement epedemic. You can be the change. Take some time this month to help your children understand the poison of comparison, and the blessing of gratitude.

Winter KingdomsExplore Your National Parks In the winter, many of our 401 national parks are transformed into magical lands. In colder areas, animals come out to play, and everything grows peaceful, quiet and sparkling with crystals of snow and ice. The Mini Page talked with a National Park Service ranger to find out more about our national parks in the winter.Winter wonderlands In the north and on the mountains, winter has a dramatic effect. National parks such as Denali in Alaska and Rocky Mountain in Colorado are snowcovered. Although snow and ice may cut off some parks from the rest of the world, many remain open. Trails and campgrounds are less crowded in parks in colder climates. The snow makes it easier to spot tracks from animals such as bobcats and deer. In parks in warmer climates, such as Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, leaves fall off the trees. This allows visitors to gain a clear vision of the landscape and wildlife. In the warmest climates, many parks have their peak, or top, season in the winter. People ock to parks such as the Everglades in Florida to escape the cold. photo courtesy NPSThe Gibbon wolf pack comes out to play in the winter quiet of Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone spreads through parts of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. In 1973, the northern Rocky Mountain wolf was listed as endangered. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service named Yellowstone as an area where wolves could recover. Its efforts were successful, and the wolf is no longer endangered. photo by Schultz, courtesy NPSIn Yellowstone National Park, steam and spray from geysers begin to freeze on the way down. Visitors can hear ice crystals clink as they fall to the ground. photo courtesy NPSDeath Valley National Park in California and Nevada is about 70 degrees on winter days.

On the Web: At the library: Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickWinter Safety Tips Winter visits Some parks close most of their entrances to cars during the winter. For example, in Yellowstone, only one road, on the northern edge, is open after heavy snowfalls. That road is plowed so residents of a nearby town are not stranded. Some park lodges remain open during the winter. Many parks allow people to camp out in the winter, but some of those parks do not camping requires special gear.Staying safe ranger before exploring a park in winter. Learn what routes are safe, and stay with adults. Some areas may close temporarily to protect the land and animals. In the winter, some wildlife and plants may be especially fragile. Take lessons before trying a new skill, such as snowboarding or skiing. In cold-area parks, wear layers of clothes, including warm socks, shoes or boots, gloves or mittens, and hats. Some areas are so cold that you will need to wear special sure to wear proper safety gear for all activities. photo courtesy NPSCross-country skiiers in Acadia National Park in Maine seem to be alone in the winter wilderness.

For example, in the summer, Yellowstone visitors are lucky if they spot one bighorn sheep, but in the winter, visitors might see thousands of them. Animals often come down from the mountains in the winter. In Denali, rangers use sled dogs to travel through the park. Some animals go into hibernation in the winter. This means animals such as bears are usually absent. If you are going wildlife watching, be respectful of the animals, and time, and people can scare animals away from their feeding grounds. This is the animals home, so please dont disturb them.Winter sports Many national parks offer lessons in winter sports, such as snowshoeing. Rangers lead hiking, skiing and other tours. There are different activities in different parks. Visitors can climb mountains, climb ice, ice fish, snowshoe, cross-country ski, downhill ski, snowboard, ice skate, sled, hike, ride with sled dogs and go snowmobiling. In Acadia National Park, visitors can bring their own dogs to skijor (SKIon skis over the ice and snow.Winter celebrations Some national parks have special winter and holiday festivals. For example, Denali has a winter festival that features winter camping demonstrations. Rangers plow the roads deeper into the park so people can explore. Historical sites may put up special holiday decorations. Many parks offer winter skyviewing parties where people can view the night skies through telescopes. In the winter, the air is drier and skies are clearer. People from city lights.photo courtesy NPSThis mountain climber in Denali National Park in Alaska has a prime view of the park.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER4, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Judith Viorst, a novelist and poet, said, Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands and then to eat just one of the pieces. Strength at the bridge table is the capacity to stop an opponent with four good trumps from winning more than one trick with them. However, doing that may require imagination. In todays deal, South is in six hearts. West leads the spade queen. South takes the trick with his ace and cashes the heart ace. Easts spade discard is a bad blow. How can South recover? It is unusual to bid a slam after a single raise, but the South hand has few losers. His three-club rebid was a help-suit game-try. And when North jumped to four hearts to say that he had club assistance, it was a fair gamble for South to bid the slam. There seem to be two unavoidable trump losers. However, if South can get his trump length reduced, he might be able to endplay West. This requires finding the West hand with exactly 3-4-4-2 distribution. Declarer plays a diamond to dummys ace, ruffs a diamond in his hand, cashes the spade king, ruffs his last spade on the board, trumps another diamond, cashes the club ace, leads a club to dummys king, and ruffs the last diamond. Everyone is down to three cards. South retains the king-jack of hearts and a low club. West has three trumps. So, when declarer leads his last club, West is forced to ruff and play away from his heart queen. Six hearts bid and made!

He has two children now. We always have been close, but Im so sad that my daughter-in-law wont let me be a grandmother. Their first year of marriage, they alternated holidays and combined our families. When they had their first child, however, Rhonda said it was too much, and now all holidays are spent with her family. They are wonderful people, but she is not willing to share her toddlers time with her husbands family, including his siblings. I do not get the privilege of babysitting or having the kids over to my house for the day. I am not allowed to pick them up or bring them places. I live nearby, but they never stop over. Rhonda is socially immature, and I believe she is naive as well as selfish. She holds all power and control and is judgmental and unkind. She gives every excuse to avoid us. Her family has tried to reason with her, to no avail. My son is terribly hurt by this and tries his best to include me for a short visit at least once a month. I am grateful, but not satisfied. I am fun-loving, happy, giving, appreciative and accepting. I make the most of whatever time I am allowed. But Rhonda is negative, self-centered and rude and does her best to spoil the visit. Ive tried several times to discuss this with her, have prayed and have shared words of wisdom and scripture, but nothing breaks through. My son prefers to avoid a confrontation. Should I also give up? Grandmother Missing Out Dear Grandmother: How sad that Rhonda denies her children the privilege of knowing all of their grandparents. Would your son be willing to bring the kids to your home for a visit without Rhonda? And if you can manage it, consider inviting the entire family, including Rhondas folks, to your place now and then. We also recommend you work on ways to warm up the relationship with Rhonda. Surely you can find something to admire about her and keep quiet about the rest. We hope, in time, she will realize that what goes around comes around. Dear Annie: My husband and I frequently go out to dinner with several other couples. One of the wives is a vegetarian. Thats fine, but she sometimes makes a scene with the server. She argues about the way things are prepared and accuses the waitstaff of lying. Its become quite embarrassing, and some of our other friends refuse to go out with her anymore. It recently happened again. My husband and I were mortified when she sent her meal back and accused the waiter of giving her the wrong dish. It ruined our night. I think we should say something, but my husband thinks it will ruin the friendship. Any suggestions? Carnivore in Florida Dear Carnivore: It is not unheard of for restaurants to prepare vegetarian meals with chicken broth or beef stock without declaring it. However, it is rude to accuse the waitstaff of lying and cause a scene. We recommend you do a search in your area for vegetarian restaurants when socializing with this couple. Otherwise, let them know you wont be going out to eat with them because it is obviously too stressful. Dear Readers: Sunday, Dec. 8, is The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting in memory of all the children who have died. Please light a candle in the evening at 7 p.m., local time, and remember them with love.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G11 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS G2Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS The Floral City Heritage Hall Museum is featuring a display about the Seminole Indian presence in the Floral City area and the wars that ensued. There are panels of information, artifacts and a dugout canoe on permanent loan from the Eden Family of Inverness. The exhibit was created by Tom Ritchie, Frank Peters, Bill Metcalfe, Ken and Kate Hughes, Doug Welin and Carl Steelfox. Here is the introduction to the display: The three Seminole Wars of Florida that occurred in the 19th century played a very important role in both the history and development of our state. The First Seminole War occurred in 1818, when U.S. military forces invaded Spanish Florida in order to punish marauding Seminoles, seized territories that were important to U.S. interests, and retrieved escaped slaves (who found refuge there since slavery was illegal under Spanish authority). The Seminoles continued giving safe haven to escaped slaves even after Spanish Florida was transferred to the U.S. in 1821, and this caused strife with the new white settlers attempting to establish plantation-styled, slave-dependent agriculture in Florida. During the first decade of American control of Florida, several treaties and the establishment of a large Seminole reservation failed to stem conflicts over land, resources, trade restrictions and escaped slaves, so in 1830, it was decreed that all Seminoles must be resettled to the Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma). A majority of Seminoles resisted this forced movement and the Second Seminole War began in late December, 1835. This war lasted seven years and ended with more than 3,000 Seminoles relocated to the Indian Territory. However, a small population was allowed to remain in the remote Everglades of South Florida, since it was believed this region was useless and undesirable to white settlers. Unfortunately, even these people were soon pressured with encroachment by white settlers, and another war broke out in 1855. This small, restricted war lasted three years and was concluded when most of the Seminole combatants and their families agreed to leave Florida. Even then, a handful of Seminoles remained behind in hiding and eventually gained formal standing, developing into the present-day Seminole Tribe of Florida. Special to the ChronicleFrank Peters, Floral City Heritage Hall Museum director, looks at some of the artifacts, which are part of the current Seminole Indian display.

G10Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G3 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS Blue Banner Tour of Historic HomesHISTORIC D. A. T OOKE HOUSE 8560 E. Orange A ve. (ticket requir ed) Owned by W illiam and Janet W eber In 1900 or a year or two before, this house was built for H. D. Bassett, a phosphate mine super intendent. He first served the Black Diamond Mine at New Hope and later served as superintendent for the Bradley Mine south side of Floral City. A photo from 1934 reveals that the house originally had a wrap-around porch from front to back. But with the popularity of the automobile, the side porch was removed in favor of a porte coche, allowing the auto close proximity to the house. The original free-standing garage remains at the back of the house. During that exterior renovation, battered columns were added across the front of the house to complement the columns on the porte coche. HISTORIC J.T. LOVE HOUSE 8580 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Gregory and Sandra Cross James Thaddeus Love built his house around 1915. He was the grandson of J.P Formy-Duval, early landowner of what was the original area of town. Current owners have been restoring and rehabilitating the house over the years. Inside, the living room walls reveal the original beaded board and all floors are original. Complementary rehabilitation of the kitchen and bathroom has been accomplished and the house exhibits a fresh coat of paint on its exterior. A challenge to the owners has been the large patio addition on the rear of the house made by a previous owner, but the challenge shall be met. When the roofing on the front porch had to be replaced, the owners had rollroofing hand cut to match the main roof. This is only one example of the care taken by many of owners of these historic homes in Floral City. FLORAL CITY CHURCH OF CHRIST 8599 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) This church structure was built in 1945 after being founded as early as 1910 at Cove Bend east of the town and near the river L. M. Black and Carey Dillinger (who was a cousin of the notorious John Dillinger, a most-wanted criminal in the 1920s and 1930s) headed up the building committee. E. Arnold Zellner donated materials from his ranch east of town on Trails End Road. When members of the Whitelaw family came to the Cove Bend area from Tennessee, they were joined by a few members of the Church of Christ who were meeting in the school building there. Those early settlers included the Johnson, Lewis, Peterson and Rooks families. After the Cove Bend school structure was sold, members met in the Floral City Community Building during World War II, while materials were collected for the present construction. Carey Dillinger made wooden pews and the design was so well accepted that other churches in the county requested him to make pews for them. It is one of several buildings in Floral City that was constructed with a basement. The church owns the large lot across the street with a pavilion and this is the area that the church so generously uses to support Floral City Heritage Days annually. FLORAL CITY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 8480 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) In 1884, the Methodist community led by master builder George Higgins and assisted by George Robinson, built this gothic vernacular structure. Restrained touches of gothic are seen in the shape and tracery of the church windows. Some original amethyst glass remains. The color was developed as sun hit the glass, which contains manganese. Manganese was obtained from Germany; therefore, when World War I broke out, the American source was cut off and antique glass found today may be dated to that period. This splendid church is considered the focal point for the National Floral City Historic District and is eligible on its own for the National Register of Historic Places. Restoration of the interior and exterior of the building was accomplished in 1992. It was restored to its founding date and contains no electricity. The removal of an addition at the back revealed a lovely bay window behind the pulpit. Two original pews have been retained at the back of the church. From the book, A Time to Remember, the History of the Floral City Methodist Church by Ann Luff, a perspective of the phosphate boom period is given when, in 1891, it was suggested that Sunday was no more than any other day. The mines did not operate, but stores were open all day and delivery wagons ran as usual. That was a shocking scene for many of the day. BERRY HOUSE 8212 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Ann and Bill Covington This home was built in 1883, the same year Floral City was founded. James Fleming, the first postmaster of the town, operated from this building before it was moved in 1893 from the old section of town near Aroostook Way to its present location on the south side of Orange Avenue, west of the U.S. 41 traffic light. The home retains its original two-story style, but the porchover-porch across the front is gone. Other modifications and additions have been made over years. Florida folk artist Polly Bernard was the last owner before current owners Bill and Ann Covington purchased the historic structure. D. A. Tooke HouseHomesfrom Page 9 J.T.

Orange Ave. (no ticket) Master Gardener Amanda Mullen (Only the garden is open, not the house) Perfected with individual vignettes at every turn, The Enchanted Garden best describes the garden at the Historic Griner House. Beyond the limerock driveway and wayside seating area, there lies a fairyland world. Lar ge wooden gates open to many garden rooms connected by narrow painted-stone paths, each leading to the next. Ancient brick encircles a halfsubmersed swimming pool; an old picnic table dabbled with shades of purple paint sits nearby and off to one side is another seating area, secluded by a mature fringe tree full with seed pods. A short tunnel of vines ends at a hidden painted door leading to yet another garden path. Turn another direction to encounter Cherokee roses climbing the lattice arbor with painted lavender roses on pavers and an inviting bench. Return toward the house and there is a large outdoor room covered entirely with passion vine, bougainvillea and other vines. The stately old camellia bushes form the foundation of this garden. Those and some of the other plants were laid out more than 55 years ago by the gardeners mother, Eva Rae Griner, whose roots ran deep in Floral Citys early days. HISTORIC TOOKE-SPIVEY HOUSE 8532 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Pam Bellman The Tooke family members were early settlers to the Floral City area. Generally they were farmers and merchants during the phosphate boom period of the areas history. A number of historic houses along Orange Avenue bear the Tooke name. Irwin Tooke and his wife, Billie, were the builders of this home, around 1908. They also built the home across the street, which has been significantly altered. Several variations of this wood-framed, bungalow-style dwelling can be found in the area. This home displays the battered columns typical of the bungalow style. Brick posts support these battered columns. Typical of early homes, the house was built without built-in closets; however, the house retains its original windows, doors and woodwork. As a contributing historic building, the home is within The Floral City Historic District, which was listed in 1993 on the National Register of Historic Places.

The tour is selfguided and entry may begin at any one of the sites. Some historic buildings do not requite a ticket. Most sites are within walking distance. THE W H. DUNN HOUSE 8050 S. Bedford Road (ticket r equired) Owned by Harvey and Astrid Dunn This home is located 3/4 mile west of U.S. 41 from the traf fic light. Driving to this site is recommended. The phosphate boom of the 1890s to early 1900s is showcased at Floral City Heritage Days. During this time, one of two major mining companies in Citrus County, the Florida Mutual Mine Company, built this house in 1907, not as a home, but for a field office. It has been described as a place for the owners and stockholders to go when they needed to conduct business in the area. There was a housekeeper or caretaker who lived there and maintained the house. The company owned several mines in the area and the field superintendent for these Floral City mines was W illiam Harvey Dunn, grandfather of the current owner, the Rev Harvey Dunn. W H. Dunn came to the region from Alabama and married Nannie L. Hemrick, a Georgia schoolteacher Some of their children were born at other local mines: the Rev. Dunns father was born at the Ten Cent Mine and three of his aunts were born at the Three Penny Mine. However, the Rev Dunns twin aunt, Hazel, and uncle, Hampton, were born in this Mutual Mine house. Hampton Dunn is known to Citrus County history buffs as the author of Back Home, a History of Citrus County, Florida, one of two dozen books compiled or authored by Hampton during his colorful life. He has been described as a reporter, author editor, soldier historian, preservationist, crusader for traffic safety and that rare individual who is recognized as a hometown hero. He served in W orld W ar II as a reporter and was managing editor of Tampa Bay Daily T imes and chairman of the board of AAA Auto Club South. In 1916 the house, which had been the Field Office, became the property of W H. Dunn and the downstairs bedroom now called The Babies Room is where Hampton and his twin sister, Hazel, were born that year. That room includes one of the eight original fireplaces (the house has nine working fireplaces). These are served by only two chimneys because the fireplaces are back-toback and above each other downstairs and upstairs. Grandfather Dunn wired the house in 1916. You will notice some of the old wiring upstairs, where you will see knob-and-tubestyle wiring, the Rev. Dunn said. The original house was sided with board n batten; later, novelty siding was added. After the Rev. Dunn obtained the house in 1973, insulation and vinyl siding were added. In 1928, the roof was changed from a gablestyle to a hip-style roof and that is when the batten was removed and the novelty siding added. John Ogden, a local carpenter, did the work, the Rev. Dunn said. The house has remained in the Dunn family since 1916, although it was vacant for about 20 years before the current owners moved in. Another interesting feature of the house is the fact that the front of the house faces an old abandoned mine road, which existed long before Bedford Road. Therefore, one drives into the property from the back and side of the house, not the front. HISTORIC DUV AL HOUSE 7801 S. Old Floral City Rd. (ticket r equired) Owned by the Duval Preservation T rust Built in 1866 by John Paul Formy-Duval when he left Ocala after the Civil War, the Duval House is the oldest remaining residence in Citrus County. Before the upstairs was completed, he discovered that it was not on his property so he moved a mile west to Duval Island, where he built a similar house. After the Duval family moved out, it had a succession of occupants until the mid-1930s, when it was acquired by the Metz family. The placement of the house on the property is unlike surrounding homes. The front of this house with its porch-over-porch faces the east and the back of the house faces Old Floral City Road. Extensive additions have occurred over the years to the west and south sides of the building. The upstairs of the Duval House was never finished remaining very much as it was in the 1860s and the second story can only be reached from an enclosed stairway opening onto the front porch. There is no access to the upstairs from the interior of the lower floor. Typical of several historic homes in Floral City, the front yard contains a large cistern used to store rainwater which was collected by roof gutters. The house remained in the possession of the Metz family until acquired in early 2012 by the Duval Preservation T rust, which has initiated the restoration project for this important historic building. REID HOUSE 8300 E. Magnolia Ave. (requir es ticket) Owned by Brian and Kelli V illio John Duren is credited with building this simple wood-frame venacular -style house, circa 19021907. It was most likely to be used as a boarding house, as it originally had three separate rooms, each with its own entrance off a porch. This explains the two front doors opening onto such a small porch. A porch on the west side of the house existed until about 1976, when it was enclosed and became a kitchen and a proper indoor bathroom was installed. Corrie T. Roux purchased the home from Duren in 1907 and kept ownership until January 1933, when she traded it to her daughter, Nannie Roux Reid. Nannie moved into this downtown area of Floral City and lived here until she passed away in 1975. Over the next 25 years or so, the house passed through various owners and was generally used as rental property. When Dave and Thelma Noble purchased the home in October 2006, it was in very poor condition and the existing owners had received approval from the Citrus County Historic Resources Advisory Board and permission from the Citrus County Community Development Division to have the house demolished. Along with the help of family, friends, and neighbors in Floral City, the Nobles successfully saved the house and enhanced the property. One of the rooms still has an original cedar tongue and groove wall and flooring. Other rooms in the house have original bead-board walls. While new materials were used to replace some of the damaged areas, as much of the original wood as possible was reworked and saved. The property was sold in July 2013 to Brian and Kelli V illio for use as a private residence. The community is grateful to the Nobles for rescuing one of Floral Citys historic buildings from demolition. FLORAL CITY COMMUNITY BUILDING 8370 E. Orange A ve. (no ticket) Owned by Citrus County Leased by Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. The Floral City W omans Club received a gift of land in 1929 from 10 prominent local businessmen. Around 1933, the club turned over the land deed to the county in exchange for the building of a clubhouse with federal funds under the W orks Progress Administration (WPA). Construction was supervised by local builder John Ogden. Due to the numerous abandoned phosphate mines in the area, lime rock became the choice of construction material. The building is one of the 26 contributing buildings within the National Historic District and served as a service club for soldiers during World W ar II. Until 1996, the building was maintained and operated by a board composed of local organizations. In 1996 the Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. entered into a 30-year lease for the building with the Citrus County Commission and utilizes their building fund to rehabilitate the structure.

Tickets are $10 for all private homes. Tickets may be purchased at any one of the homes with a blue banner in front or at the Information Tent next to the Ferris Grove Sales Store on U.S. 41. The tour is selfguided and entry may begin at any one of the sites. Some historic buildings do not requite a ticket. Most sites are within walking distance. THE W H. DUNN HOUSE 8050 S. Bedford Road (ticket r equired) Owned by Harvey and Astrid Dunn This home is located 3/4 mile west of U.S. 41 from the traf fic light. Driving to this site is recommended. The phosphate boom of the 1890s to early 1900s is showcased at Floral City Heritage Days. During this time, one of two major mining companies in Citrus County, the Florida Mutual Mine Company, built this house in 1907, not as a home, but for a field office. It has been described as a place for the owners and stockholders to go when they needed to conduct business in the area. There was a housekeeper or caretaker who lived there and maintained the house. The company owned several mines in the area and the field superintendent for these Floral City mines was W illiam Harvey Dunn, grandfather of the current owner, the Rev Harvey Dunn. W H. Dunn came to the region from Alabama and married Nannie L. Hemrick, a Georgia schoolteacher Some of their children were born at other local mines: the Rev. Dunns father was born at the Ten Cent Mine and three of his aunts were born at the Three Penny Mine. However, the Rev Dunns twin aunt, Hazel, and uncle, Hampton, were born in this Mutual Mine house. Hampton Dunn is known to Citrus County history buffs as the author of Back Home, a History of Citrus County, Florida, one of two dozen books compiled or authored by Hampton during his colorful life. He has been described as a reporter, author editor, soldier historian, preservationist, crusader for traffic safety and that rare individual who is recognized as a hometown hero. He served in W orld W ar II as a reporter and was managing editor of Tampa Bay Daily T imes and chairman of the board of AAA Auto Club South. In 1916 the house, which had been the Field Office, became the property of W H. Dunn and the downstairs bedroom now called The Babies Room is where Hampton and his twin sister, Hazel, were born that year. That room includes one of the eight original fireplaces (the house has nine working fireplaces). These are served by only two chimneys because the fireplaces are back-toback and above each other downstairs and upstairs. Grandfather Dunn wired the house in 1916. You will notice some of the old wiring upstairs, where you will see knob-and-tubestyle wiring, the Rev. Dunn said. The original house was sided with board n batten; later, novelty siding was added. After the Rev. Dunn obtained the house in 1973, insulation and vinyl siding were added. In 1928, the roof was changed from a gablestyle to a hip-style roof and that is when the batten was removed and the novelty siding added. John Ogden, a local carpenter, did the work, the Rev. Dunn said. The house has remained in the Dunn family since 1916, although it was vacant for about 20 years before the current owners moved in. Another interesting feature of the house is the fact that the front of the house faces an old abandoned mine road, which existed long before Bedford Road. Therefore, one drives into the property from the back and side of the house, not the front. HISTORIC DUV AL HOUSE 7801 S. Old Floral City Rd. (ticket r equired) Owned by the Duval Preservation T rust Built in 1866 by John Paul Formy-Duval when he left Ocala after the Civil War, the Duval House is the oldest remaining residence in Citrus County. Before the upstairs was completed, he discovered that it was not on his property so he moved a mile west to Duval Island, where he built a similar house. After the Duval family moved out, it had a succession of occupants until the mid-1930s, when it was acquired by the Metz family. The placement of the house on the property is unlike surrounding homes. The front of this house with its porch-over-porch faces the east and the back of the house faces Old Floral City Road. Extensive additions have occurred over the years to the west and south sides of the building. The upstairs of the Duval House was never finished remaining very much as it was in the 1860s and the second story can only be reached from an enclosed stairway opening onto the front porch. There is no access to the upstairs from the interior of the lower floor. Typical of several historic homes in Floral City, the front yard contains a large cistern used to store rainwater which was collected by roof gutters. The house remained in the possession of the Metz family until acquired in early 2012 by the Duval Preservation T rust, which has initiated the restoration project for this important historic building. REID HOUSE 8300 E. Magnolia Ave. (requir es ticket) Owned by Brian and Kelli V illio John Duren is credited with building this simple wood-frame venacular -style house, circa 19021907. It was most likely to be used as a boarding house, as it originally had three separate rooms, each with its own entrance off a porch. This explains the two front doors opening onto such a small porch. A porch on the west side of the house existed until about 1976, when it was enclosed and became a kitchen and a proper indoor bathroom was installed. Corrie T. Roux purchased the home from Duren in 1907 and kept ownership until January 1933, when she traded it to her daughter, Nannie Roux Reid. Nannie moved into this downtown area of Floral City and lived here until she passed away in 1975. Over the next 25 years or so, the house passed through various owners and was generally used as rental property. When Dave and Thelma Noble purchased the home in October 2006, it was in very poor condition and the existing owners had received approval from the Citrus County Historic Resources Advisory Board and permission from the Citrus County Community Development Division to have the house demolished. Along with the help of family, friends, and neighbors in Floral City, the Nobles successfully saved the house and enhanced the property. One of the rooms still has an original cedar tongue and groove wall and flooring. Other rooms in the house have original bead-board walls. While new materials were used to replace some of the damaged areas, as much of the original wood as possible was reworked and saved. The property was sold in July 2013 to Brian and Kelli V illio for use as a private residence. The community is grateful to the Nobles for rescuing one of Floral Citys historic buildings from demolition. FLORAL CITY COMMUNITY BUILDING 8370 E. Orange A ve. (no ticket) Owned by Citrus County Leased by Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. The Floral City W omans Club received a gift of land in 1929 from 10 prominent local businessmen. Around 1933, the club turned over the land deed to the county in exchange for the building of a clubhouse with federal funds under the W orks Progress Administration (WPA). Construction was supervised by local builder John Ogden. Due to the numerous abandoned phosphate mines in the area, lime rock became the choice of construction material. The building is one of the 26 contributing buildings within the National Historic District and served as a service club for soldiers during World W ar II. Until 1996, the building was maintained and operated by a board composed of local organizations. In 1996 the Floral City Lions Foundation Inc. entered into a 30-year lease for the building with the Citrus County Commission and utilizes their building fund to rehabilitate the structure.

Orange Ave. (no ticket) Master Gardener Amanda Mullen (Only the garden is open, not the house) Perfected with individual vignettes at every turn, The Enchanted Garden best describes the garden at the Historic Griner House. Beyond the limerock driveway and wayside seating area, there lies a fairyland world. Lar ge wooden gates open to many garden rooms connected by narrow painted-stone paths, each leading to the next. Ancient brick encircles a halfsubmersed swimming pool; an old picnic table dabbled with shades of purple paint sits nearby and off to one side is another seating area, secluded by a mature fringe tree full with seed pods. A short tunnel of vines ends at a hidden painted door leading to yet another garden path. Turn another direction to encounter Cherokee roses climbing the lattice arbor with painted lavender roses on pavers and an inviting bench. Return toward the house and there is a large outdoor room covered entirely with passion vine, bougainvillea and other vines. The stately old camellia bushes form the foundation of this garden. Those and some of the other plants were laid out more than 55 years ago by the gardeners mother, Eva Rae Griner, whose roots ran deep in Floral Citys early days. HISTORIC TOOKE-SPIVEY HOUSE 8532 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Pam Bellman The Tooke family members were early settlers to the Floral City area. Generally they were farmers and merchants during the phosphate boom period of the areas history. A number of historic houses along Orange Avenue bear the Tooke name. Irwin Tooke and his wife, Billie, were the builders of this home, around 1908. They also built the home across the street, which has been significantly altered. Several variations of this wood-framed, bungalow-style dwelling can be found in the area. This home displays the battered columns typical of the bungalow style. Brick posts support these battered columns. Typical of early homes, the house was built without built-in closets; however, the house retains its original windows, doors and woodwork. As a contributing historic building, the home is within The Floral City Historic District, which was listed in 1993 on the National Register of Historic Places.

G10Wednesday, December 4, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWednesday, December 4, 2013 G3 FLORALCITYHERITAGEDAYS Blue Banner Tour of Historic HomesHISTORIC D. A. T OOKE HOUSE 8560 E. Orange A ve. (ticket requir ed) Owned by W illiam and Janet W eber In 1900 or a year or two before, this house was built for H. D. Bassett, a phosphate mine super intendent. He first served the Black Diamond Mine at New Hope and later served as superintendent for the Bradley Mine south side of Floral City. A photo from 1934 reveals that the house originally had a wrap-around porch from front to back. But with the popularity of the automobile, the side porch was removed in favor of a porte coche, allowing the auto close proximity to the house. The original free-standing garage remains at the back of the house. During that exterior renovation, battered columns were added across the front of the house to complement the columns on the porte coche. HISTORIC J.T. LOVE HOUSE 8580 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Gregory and Sandra Cross James Thaddeus Love built his house around 1915. He was the grandson of J.P Formy-Duval, early landowner of what was the original area of town. Current owners have been restoring and rehabilitating the house over the years. Inside, the living room walls reveal the original beaded board and all floors are original. Complementary rehabilitation of the kitchen and bathroom has been accomplished and the house exhibits a fresh coat of paint on its exterior. A challenge to the owners has been the large patio addition on the rear of the house made by a previous owner, but the challenge shall be met. When the roofing on the front porch had to be replaced, the owners had rollroofing hand cut to match the main roof. This is only one example of the care taken by many of owners of these historic homes in Floral City. FLORAL CITY CHURCH OF CHRIST 8599 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) This church structure was built in 1945 after being founded as early as 1910 at Cove Bend east of the town and near the river L. M. Black and Carey Dillinger (who was a cousin of the notorious John Dillinger, a most-wanted criminal in the 1920s and 1930s) headed up the building committee. E. Arnold Zellner donated materials from his ranch east of town on Trails End Road. When members of the Whitelaw family came to the Cove Bend area from Tennessee, they were joined by a few members of the Church of Christ who were meeting in the school building there. Those early settlers included the Johnson, Lewis, Peterson and Rooks families. After the Cove Bend school structure was sold, members met in the Floral City Community Building during World War II, while materials were collected for the present construction. Carey Dillinger made wooden pews and the design was so well accepted that other churches in the county requested him to make pews for them. It is one of several buildings in Floral City that was constructed with a basement. The church owns the large lot across the street with a pavilion and this is the area that the church so generously uses to support Floral City Heritage Days annually. FLORAL CITY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 8480 E. Marvin St. (no ticket) In 1884, the Methodist community led by master builder George Higgins and assisted by George Robinson, built this gothic vernacular structure. Restrained touches of gothic are seen in the shape and tracery of the church windows. Some original amethyst glass remains. The color was developed as sun hit the glass, which contains manganese. Manganese was obtained from Germany; therefore, when World War I broke out, the American source was cut off and antique glass found today may be dated to that period. This splendid church is considered the focal point for the National Floral City Historic District and is eligible on its own for the National Register of Historic Places. Restoration of the interior and exterior of the building was accomplished in 1992. It was restored to its founding date and contains no electricity. The removal of an addition at the back revealed a lovely bay window behind the pulpit. Two original pews have been retained at the back of the church. From the book, A Time to Remember, the History of the Floral City Methodist Church by Ann Luff, a perspective of the phosphate boom period is given when, in 1891, it was suggested that Sunday was no more than any other day. The mines did not operate, but stores were open all day and delivery wagons ran as usual. That was a shocking scene for many of the day. BERRY HOUSE 8212 E. Orange Ave. (ticket required) Owned by Ann and Bill Covington This home was built in 1883, the same year Floral City was founded. James Fleming, the first postmaster of the town, operated from this building before it was moved in 1893 from the old section of town near Aroostook Way to its present location on the south side of Orange Avenue, west of the U.S. 41 traffic light. The home retains its original two-story style, but the porchover-porch across the front is gone. Other modifications and additions have been made over years. Florida folk artist Polly Bernard was the last owner before current owners Bill and Ann Covington purchased the historic structure. D. A. Tooke HouseHomesfrom Page 9 J.T.

There are panels of information, artifacts and a dugout canoe on permanent loan from the Eden Family of Inverness. The exhibit was created by Tom Ritchie, Frank Peters, Bill Metcalfe, Ken and Kate Hughes, Doug Welin and Carl Steelfox. Here is the introduction to the display: The three Seminole Wars of Florida that occurred in the 19th century played a very important role in both the history and development of our state. The First Seminole War occurred in 1818, when U.S. military forces invaded Spanish Florida in order to punish marauding Seminoles, seized territories that were important to U.S. interests, and retrieved escaped slaves (who found refuge there since slavery was illegal under Spanish authority). The Seminoles continued giving safe haven to escaped slaves even after Spanish Florida was transferred to the U.S. in 1821, and this caused strife with the new white settlers attempting to establish plantation-styled, slave-dependent agriculture in Florida. During the first decade of American control of Florida, several treaties and the establishment of a large Seminole reservation failed to stem conflicts over land, resources, trade restrictions and escaped slaves, so in 1830, it was decreed that all Seminoles must be resettled to the Indian Territory (modern-day Oklahoma). A majority of Seminoles resisted this forced movement and the Second Seminole War began in late December, 1835. This war lasted seven years and ended with more than 3,000 Seminoles relocated to the Indian Territory. However, a small population was allowed to remain in the remote Everglades of South Florida, since it was believed this region was useless and undesirable to white settlers. Unfortunately, even these people were soon pressured with encroachment by white settlers, and another war broke out in 1855. This small, restricted war lasted three years and was concluded when most of the Seminole combatants and their families agreed to leave Florida. Even then, a handful of Seminoles remained behind in hiding and eventually gained formal standing, developing into the present-day Seminole Tribe of Florida. Special to the ChronicleFrank Peters, Floral City Heritage Hall Museum director, looks at some of the artifacts, which are part of the current Seminole Indian display.
