NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER At 12 years old, Mandi (no last name) is a student at Crystal River Middle School. With green scaled skin, blue hair and pointy ears, shes both a typical middle school student and atypical. Mandi, according to her creator, Shawn Surface, is a Nereid, a sea nymph, much like a mermaid. She can live both in and out of the water. Mandi, a comic book limited series due out this summer, follows a year in the life of Mandi as she learns to live as a lander, with friends, enemies, worries and secrets just like any other girl her age, and so much more. Kids dont read books much any more, but they do read comic books, Surface said in a telephone interview. Mine has no harsh language or gory details or violence, although later in the series it takes a dark turn. The artist/writer lives in Orlando. He said he chose Crystal River as a setting because its known for its rivers and waterways as well as being a sanctuary for manatees. Why a sea nymph? I have a grown daughter, and she was one of the main inspirations behind this, and I wanted to leave something for her, he said. I was also inspired by the Little Mermaid and the movie Lady in the Water that M. Night Shyamalan did years ago. Mandi is a mythological being, one of the daughters of a sea god named Nereus. Surface said some think of comics as nerd stuff, but they have long been a way for artist/writers to tell their stories. Comics are still big, he said. Surface said he has been drawing ever since he could hold a pen and has been doing comics art since 2005. I used to go to (comics) conventions like Megacon thats here in Orlando as a regular customer, he said. Then I had some friends invite me to spend a weekend with them on the other side of the table, put my shingle up and doodle on some paper and people liked it and I started selling my art. He said his usual way of drawing is pretty detailed, but he chose a more simple style for Mandi. I chose to do Mandi in a more cartoony style, with an Anime look to it, with big eyes and simple features, to appeal to a younger age group, he said.

The House bill, sponsored by Sarasota Republican Greg Steube, passed 71-44. We have inadvertently made schools ... a sterile target, said Rep. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala, who voted for the measure. We are not safe when we create an environment where those who are deranged can go and do reckless damage. The issue has been argued nationwide since school shootings at Connecticuts Sandy Hook Elementary, Virginia Tech University, Columbine High School in Colorado and others. One side says Story celebrates environment House passes guns in school bill Money supports Lutheran ministryNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHERNANDO Combining a to-do from his bucket list with a desire to help feed the hungry of Citrus County, Bob Kohm, 67, will embark on a bicycle trek from Key West to Fort Kent, Maine, this week to raise funds for the S.O.S. (Serving Our Savior) food pantry ministry that operates out of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Hernando. Kohms wife, Dianne, is going along as support, although she will travel by car. They estimate it will take three or four months, biking three to five hours a day. Were calling this a mosey trip, Kohm said. Were taking our time, seeing the sights, visiting friends and relatives. We dont have to be back until September. Kohm, who said hes always been athletic, suffered a skiing accident eight years ago that damaged his spinal cord. I cant run anymore, but miraculously I can bike, he said. Back in the 1970s, I had read a National Geographic article about a guy who biked from Fort Kent to Key West, and at the time, I thought it was a neat idea, a good way to see the eastern United States, he said. Weve already driven Route 17, but you see so much more when youre going slower. So, now that were retired and have the time, we can do this, he said. You have to do it while youre still vertical. He said they moved to Terra Vista in Hernando in 2013 and found the church shortly after that and got involved with S.O.S. Its been very rewarding, he said. At Terra Vista, its a pocket of affluence, so you dont see the real need of this county, and its tremendous ... the people who come for food, they say thank you, but really, they give so much to me. This is something I can do to help raise money to help buy food. We just gave out about 250 hams for Easter and we give out turkeys for Thanksgiving.

Bike trek to raise funds for food pantry Orlando artist creates childrens comic book based in Crystal River MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerA customer writes a $20,000 check to his home builder, expecting that the builder will use that money to pay companies providing materials such as windows and framing for the customers new house. The builder, however, instead uses that money to pay other debts, even on other homes hes building. The customer soon receives notices from the subcontractors and suppliers that they havent been paid. Those notices are followed by liens that could result in foreclosure lawsuits if the liens are not paid. Now what? Robert and Judi Meisel paid the lien holders close to $80,000 to avoid being sued because their Citrus Springs-based builder, Gold Crest Homes Inc., ignored the liens and abandoned the Pine Ridge house. The Meisels, of Cape Cod, Mass., say theyre out about $300,000 to Gold Crest owners Michael and Kathy Gilbert for a home that is 60 percent complete. They filed complaints with the county and the state Department of Business and Professional Regulation. They also asked the sheriffs office to investigate, and sent Lien law cases hard to prove Regionals: Pirates prepared for semifinal showdown /B1VOL. 119 ISSUE 265 See LIEN/ Page A5 See GUNS/ Page A2 See COMIC/ Page A2 See TREK/ Page A5
armed officials are better equipped to handle emergency situations. The other argues that the presence of more guns in schools increases the odds of another incident. Supporters of the Florida bill stressed that each school district would have the choice to arm officials if the measure passed. Under the legislation, the armed officials would have to be former or current law enforcement officers or former or current military officers. They would be required to pass background screening, possess a concealed weapon license, and annually participate in active shooter training and firearm proficiency training. The bill also requires schools to conduct active shooter and hostage drills. Local law enforcement would conduct the training. You cannot prevent evil from occurring in this country, Steube said. Lets give our children a chance if somebody walks through that door somebody there armed to be able to (have a) properly trained response to the shooter. The Senate version of the bill has been stuck in a committee since midMarch. It is unclear whether it can advance to the floor for a vote with just days remaining in the 2014 session. produce the pages, its quicker. Mandi is being published by Surfaces company, Peacenik Press. I have quite a few stories Im developing, but Mandis the first one out of the chute, he said. He added that he has been posting his art on the Deviantart.com site, a free art community website, which has helped him get the word out about Mandis debut. Plus I go to quite a few conventions, he said. Saturday, May 3, is Free Comic Book Day.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Racing against the clock, Florida legislators have reached a deal on most of the spending that will be included in a new $75 billion state budget. House and Senate budget negotiators worked the entire weekend and did not publicly agree to most spending items until a late-night session held at the Capitol right before midnight Sunday. They agreed to pay raises for some state workers, but not for the majority of them. Legislators signed off on a proposal to boost spending on public school students, but still not enough to reach the levels in place right before the recession forced a wave of spending cuts. There is also money in the budget to hire more child protective investigators, as well as money to help the states beleaguered springs and to start work cleaning up and restoring Indian River Lagoon. Excess water and pollution levels rose in the water body last year after the Army Corps of Engineers diverted water away from Lake Okeechobee during the rainy season. I feel like its a really strong budget I feel we can be proud of, said Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart and the Senate budget chief. Left undone: School and college construction projects and details directing the agencies how to spend the money. The budget needs to be on the desk of legislators by Tuesday in order to end the session on time. Florida law requires a 72-hour cooling off period before a final vote is taken on the budget. Florida legislators entered their annual session with a projected $1.2 billion surplus due to the states recovering economy. The Republican-controlled Legislature has already passed a nearly $400 million rollback in annual auto registration fees that was a top priority of Gov. Rick Scott. Lawmakers plan to pass an additional $100 million in tax cuts this coming week although a final agreement has not been reached on that package. It appears likely that legislators will at least endorse a three-day back-to-school sales tax holiday for shoppers.

Inverness concert slated for May 15 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerA bank is foreclosing on the home of an Inverness man who is now serving prison time for raping teenage girls at his house after they were drunk or passed out from using drugs. Bruce McQuillin, 50, was sentenced in September to eight years in prison followed by five years probation after he pleaded no-contest to numerous charges involving molestation of teenage girls at his house during weekend drinking and drug parties. A judge adjudicated him guilty. Following his prison term, McQuillin will be a registered sexual predator, according to court records. McQuillin was arrested in November 2012 and held without bond prior to his prison sentence. McQuillin is serving his sentence at the Jefferson Correctional Institute in Monticello. In May 2007, McQuillin took out a 30-year, $140,000 mortgage from Nationstar Mortgage LLC of Tampa on his home. As of Jan. 1, 2013, McQuillin owed $108,857 and hadnt made a payment since, according to court records. On April 14, Nationstar sued McQuillin to foreclose on the home. The case is pending in circuit court. Report: Man sentenced in sex case in line to lose home Bruce McQuillin From staff and wire reports Legislative BRIEFS Craft beer bill ready for Senate voteA bill that would restrict take-home sales of cans, bottles and kegs of beer at Florida breweries is ready for a Senate vote. The bill was amended Monday over questions that it could hurt breweries. The bill would allow bottle and can sales at breweries, but they would be limited to no more than 20 percent of the total beer production. The restriction wouldnt apply to breweries that produce less than 2,000 kegs of beer a year. It also would restrict keg sales to one per person per day. The benefit to brewers is a provision that would legalize half-gallon refillable beer containers that are the industry standard in 47 states. The Florida Brewers Guild opposes the bill because currently there are no limits on packaged beer sales at breweries.Senate OKs bill targeting foreign lawsForeign laws would be banned in Florida courts for certain family-related cases under a bill the Senate sent to the House on Monday. The Senate voted 24-14 to approve the proposal (SB 386) by Umatilla Republican Alan Hays, who has pushed various versions of the measure the past couple of years. The current bill would restrict courts and arbitration tribunals from applying foreign law and legal codes to matters of divorce, alimony, division of marital assets, child support and child custody. The bill has been criticized as anti-Muslim and targeted at Sharia religious law followed in some Islamic countries. The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent letters to Republican lawmakers on April 7 asking them to reject the bill they claim is intended to marginalize American Muslim and other minority communities. Flood insurance bill gets OKAfter homeowners received a major scare about rate increases, the Florida House on Monday approved a bill aimed at drawing more private insurers to write flood-insurance coverage in the state. House members voted 98-11 to approve the bill (SB 542). The Senate approved the bill earlier, but the measure will have to return to the Senate because of changes made in the House. Lawmakers began looking for ways to expand private coverage after it appeared that tens of thousands of Florida homeowners could get hit with massive increases under the National Flood Insurance Program. While Congress has alleviated those concerns, state lawmakers have continued working on the issue. House sponsor Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater, questioned whether the federal government and Congress would take care of flood-insurance needs.House backs Alzheimers researchPointing to the prevalence of Alzheimers disease in Florida, the House on Monday unanimously approved a bill (HB 709) that would create a new research program and lead to standards for memorydisorder clinics. This is a looming issue for our state and our nation, bill sponsor Matt Hudson, RNaples, said. The bill would create the Ed and Ethel Moore Alzheimers Disease Research Program named after Hudsons grandparents that would help fund research at universities and research institutes into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of the disease.

Fox jumped into the theater game Monday by announcing it will broadcast a three-hour live version of the musical Grease that will feature a young ensemble cast that has yet to be named. NBC got a ratings boost last December with its live broadcast of The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood. It said its working on a live production of Peter Pan for next December. Grease features such songs as Summer Nights, Greased Lightnin, We Go Together and Youre the One That I Want. It was made into a 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The live version will be a production of Paramount Television.Celebrity joins carriage horse fightNEW YORK More celebrities are choosing sides in the debate over carriage horses in New York City. Jillian Michaels a trainer who appears on NBCs The Biggest Loser weight-loss competition, joined an anti-carriage rally on the steps of City Hall on Monday. The rally was sponsored by the animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Michaels said she feels its inhumane to make the animals work in Central Park and on Manhattans streets. Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to ban the carriages and replace them with vintage-looking electric cars. But he may not have enough votes in the City Council to pass a law. Alec Baldwin, Pink and Lea Michele also support the ban. Actor Liam Neeson has been the most vocal celebrity wanting to keep the carriages.

an email to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, saying the Gilberts are guilty of misapplication of funds. Bondi forwarded the email to the State Attorneys Office, where it landed with Assistant State Attorney Mark Simpson, who oversees such cases. Simpson said proving fraud or theft cases with contractors is just about impossible without proving that the builder used a customers funds for personal gain. At this point we have no proof, he said. Simpson said the state lien law, which holds property owners liable for payments to subcontractors and suppliers, leaves little room for prosecuting builders who dont pay their bills. I have to prove a theft, he said. In contracting thats very hard to do. The reason is that once a customer pays the builder, unless those funds are deposited into an account specifically set up to make payments on his house, the builder can use the money for any business purpose even if its not associated with that specific project. What did they do with that money? Simpson said. If its for business purposes, youve got a dead loser on your hands. Gold Crest is apparently out of business. Their signs were removed from the office on Pine Ridge Boulevard, their phone is disconnected and the website was shut down. Kathy Gilbert, who now owns a separate small business in the county, has said she wont comment on the advice of her attorney. The Gilberts attorney, Robert Butts of Gainesville, could not be reached for comment. more than $1,800, even before he has pedaled his first mile. All money raised will go directly to S.O.S. The Kohms are funding this trip themselves. Mrs. Kohm will be posting photos and updates along the way to a Facebook page at Facebook.com/S.O.S. Food Pantry Bike Ride. Its amazing how God pushes you to where he wants you to be, Kohm said. He led us to this church and then to helping feed people with S.O.S., and then this trip. Its amazing how things go.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Eighty-three cadets were treated to dinner and decorations Sunday at Crystal River High School as the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps marked the end of another active year. Lt. Cmdr. Wayne Walker (retired), aided by Senior Chief Ira Sparkman, led the presentations. Walker said when he joined six years ago, only 104 cadets were in the program. As the unit has 193 cadets and is expected to hit 200 or more next year, Walker said the school board has been asked for a third instructor. Our program is not about putting cadets into the military, but we are proud when they sign up, Walker said. This year we have 17 active seniors. Eight of those will join our military forces after graduation. Walker reported that during the year 10 cadets went to sailor camp. Some cadets were in the leadership program in the British Virgin Islands. A group of about 50 cadets visited Mayport Naval Station. We took on the blood drive this year as a program for our community service within the unit with outstanding results, Walker said, attributing 300 units of blood to cadets efforts, led by AnastassiaDaigneau. We marched in homecoming parades, marched in the veterans parade, marched in the Christmas parade, Walker said, and the unit won awards for their presentation. The cadets directed traffic and carried out other community service works at the countys festivals. The program, Walker said, is about leadership and character development. For more than an hour, cadets were called forward to accept awards for orienteering, leadership, exemplary appearance, academic excellence, exemplary conduct, physical training and military aptitude. Many of the countys veterans groups presented awards to individual cadets and made donations to support the program. In addition to decorations, some students were awarded scholarships. Citrus County School Board member Sandy Balfour told the audience of about 350 that she talked to many cadets that evening and heard positive responses from them. I know what Im going to be doing. I feel value. People care about me. People want me to be successful. I feel more pride. I feel good about myself. Those were the words that were resonating as I talked to individuals, Balfour said. Any program that can pull the numbers in year after year after year is doing something right. At the end of the evening, Walker announced the command for next year. They are: Jessica Rummel, commanding officer; Tyler Prestidge, executive officer; and Matthew Rider, operations officer.

State BRIEF Floridas high school graduation rate among lowestMIAMI Floridas high school graduation rate is among the lowest in the nation. A report released Monday found Floridas 75 percent graduation rate is about five percentage points lower than the nationwide average. Across the U.S., about 80 percent of high school students graduate, a new milestone. The report was based on U.S. Department of Education statistics from 2012. Researchers say the nationwide progress means the national graduation rate could reach 90 percent by 2020. From wire reports

She was 81. German news agency dpa on Sunday cited her nephew Walter Zweig as saying the author died Friday after a short, serious illness. Zweig was born in 1932 in Leobschuetz, now part of Poland. In 1938, her family fled the Nazi persecution of Jews and moved to Kenya, where she attended a British school. Zweig returned to Germany in 1947 and worked as a journalist for many years before she began writing novels. Of her more than two dozen books Nowhere in Africa, first published in 1995, was the most successful, retelling the story of her familys time in Kenya. A movie adaptation won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 2003.Rashad Harden, 34DJ RASHADCHICAGO Rashad Harden, a house music and footwork pioneer who performed as DJ Rashad, was found dead this weekend of an apparent drug overdose, authorities said Sunday. He was 34. Chicago Police spokeswoman Janel Sedevic said a friend found Hardens body Saturday afternoon in an apartment on the citys West Side. There was no sign of injury but narcotics and drug paraphernalia were found near his body, she said. An autopsy was conducted Sunday but the Cook County Medical Examiners Office said it is waiting for the results of toxicology tests to determine a cause of death. Hardens death comes just days before his EP was scheduled for release and less than a month after fellow house music star Frankie Knuckles also died in the city. Harden, a resident of Calumet City, was poised for a breakout year, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. His fifth album received his best reviews, he was scheduled to play clubs all over the world and his latest EP, We On 1, was scheduled to be released Monday. Its just a tragic loss of a great musical genius, said longtime friend and collaborator Morris Harper, who performs as DJ Spinn and who was scheduled to appear with Rashad in Detroit on Saturday night. Rashad was considered a pioneer of footwork an electronic-oriented music genre that originated in Chicago. Once known as juke, footwork is named for its quick dance moves and is known for what Rolling Stone calls a frenzied and hypnotic style of dance music that features heart-racing BPMs and, often, chopped-up loops of popular rap, R&B and pop vocals.A6TUESDAY, APRIL29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 302 N.E. 3rd St., Crystal River, FL www.waverleyflorist.com Waverley Florist Serving all of Citrus County 352.795.1424 800.771.0057 Fresh & Silk Flower Arrangements for All Occasions 000HU8J 000HWM9 355 NE 10th Avenue Crystal River, FL 34429 352-228-4967 www.cremationcenterofthenaturecoast.com Call the Chronicle or your advertising representative to reserve your space 563-5592 Graduation 2014 Tell the special graduate in your life how much you care.

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK It was a choppy ride for the stock market on Monday that ended with major U.S. indexes closing mostly higher. Traders were pulled in multiple directions. Stocks opened higher, fell in the afternoon, and then rose again in the last hour of trading. Bank stocks fell after Bank of America said a financial error would force it to cancel its stock buyback plan and dividend increase, while health-care stocks rose after U.S. drug giant Pfizer renewed its pursuit of a merger with British rival AstraZeneca. Formerly highflying technology stocks fell again, dragging the Nasdaq composite index into the red. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 6.03 points, or 0.3 percent, to close at 1,869.43. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 87.28 points, or 0.5 percent, to 16,448.74 and the Nasdaq edged down 1.16 points, or 0.03 percent, to 4,074.40. The Nasdaq erased most of a 61-point loss. Bank of America sank $1.00, or 6.3 percent, to $14.95 after it unexpectedly announced it would suspend its stock buyback program and dividend increase. The bank discovered an error in how it calculates its capital ratio, a crucial measure of a banks financial strength. The Federal Reserve asked the bank to put its buyback and dividend increase on hold until the error was fixed. Goldman Sachs and Citigroup each 1 percent following BofAs announcement. JPMorgan Chase edged down 0.4 percent. High-risk technology stocks were another area of weakness Monday as investors continue to cut their exposure to highgrowth names and turn their focus to larger dividend-paying companies. Amazon fell $7.25, or 2.5 percent, to $296.58 after falling 10 percent on Friday. Netflix lost $7.87, or 2.4 percent, to $314.21 and Facebook fell $1.57, or 2.7 percent, to $56.14. In contrast, old technology companies such as Microsoft, Apple and IBM, which have more mature businesses and pay quarterly dividends, rose 2 percent or more Monday. High-growth technology and biotechnology stocks have been falling for several weeks now. The Nasdaq is down 3 percent in April, while the S&P 500 and Dow are roughly flat. Traders say the selling has been coming from large investors, who have been moving out of highgrowth stocks and into safer investments. The Russell 2000, an index made up mostly of smaller companies, is down nearly 5 percent this month. When you have so many investors doing the same thing at the same time, you get these exaggerated moves in some of these stocks, said Ian Winer, director of equity trading at Wedbush Securities. Stocks burble slightly higher Associated PressSteven Kaplan, left, shares a light moment Monday with a fellow trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. BusinessBRIEFS Toyota moving US base from California to TexasTORRANCE, Calif. Toyota is moving its U.S. headquarters from California to Texas to get closer to its Midwest assembly plants and improve communication between units now spread over several states. Toyota will break ground this year on a new environmentally-friendly headquarters in Plano, Texas, about 25 miles north of Dallas. Small groups of employees will start moving to temporary office space there this year, but most will not move until late 2016 or early 2017 when a new headquarters is completed. The new campus will bring together approximately 4,000 employees from sales, marketing, engineering, manufacturing and finance. That includes 2,000 employees at the current headquarters in Torrance, Calif.; 1,000 employees at Toyota Financial Services, which is also in California; and 1,000 employees from Toyotas engineering and manufacturing center in Erlanger, Ky. Toyota also plans to expand its technical center near Ann Arbor, Mich., and move approximately 250 parts procurement positions there from Georgetown, Ky., where the Camry and Avalon sedans are made. That will free up space for approximately 300 production engineers to move from Erlanger to Georgetown. Jim Lentz, Toyotas CEO for North America, said the new headquarters will enable faster decision making. Its one of the most significant changes in Toyotas 57-year history in the U.S., Lentz told The Associated Press. We needed to be much more collaborative, said Lentz. Larry Dominique, the president of ALG, an automotive consulting and forecasting firm, said Texas is a cheaper place to do business than California, which has higher corporate taxes and more onerous work rules like paid family leave. Toyota has had a presence in California since 1957, when it opened its first U.S. headquarters in a former Rambler dealership in Hollywood. The following year Toyotas first in the U.S. market it sold 287 Toyopet Crown sedans and one Land Cruiser.New solar installation rules likely to raise costsHONOLULU A Hawaii state board has issued new rules for solar panel installation that will require journeyman electricians to do more of the work. That move is expected to raise the costs of installing the panels. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that the Board of Electricians and Plumbers will require that electricians handle bonding and grounding the system. Those are safety measures that keep people from getting shocked by diverting current into the earth. Solar energy systems contractors have handled that step. Leslie Cole-Brooks, the executive director of the Hawaii Solar Energy Association, said solar panels are now made such that an electrician isnt needed to ground and bond the systems safely. She said the rules change will make installations slower and more expensive.Labor secretary announces new job grants to statesWASHINGTON Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez said the government is making a fresh $150 million installment to a federal program to help train workers who have lost their jobs in high-demand industries through no fault of their own. Perez told reporters on Monday that states can apply for grants ranging from $500,000 to $6 million so they may, in his words, connect job-seekers with well-paying jobs so they can return to the workplace. It brings federal spending on related programs to roughly $1 billion over just the past three months.General Dynamics secures $17.65 billion contractGROTON, Conn. General Dynamics says it has secured a $17.65 billion contract to build submarines for the U.S. Navy. The company said Monday that its subsidiary Electric Boat will be responsible for building 10 additional Virginia-class submarines as part of the agreement. It plans to build two ships per year for the next five years with the help of its partner Newport News Shipbuilding, a unit of Huntington Ingalls Industries. Electric Boat and Newport News Shipbuilding already have delivered 10 of these submarines to the Navy, and eight additional submarines are under construction. Shares of General Dynamics Corp., based in Falls Church, Va., closed at $107.39, down $1.62. Shares of Huntington Ingalls, based in Newport News, Va., closed at $99.08, down $1.48.Microsoft warns of Internet Explorer security gapREDMOND, Wash. Microsoft says a security gap in Internet Explorer could allow an attacker to take complete control of a computer if the user clicks on a malicious link. The vulnerability affects versions 6 through 11 of the Web browser. Microsoft Corp. said Saturday it was aware of limited, targeted attacks that tried to exploit the security gap. The company is working on a fix which it plans to provide in a software update on May 13. In the meantime, Microsoft encourages customers to enable a firewall, apply all software updates and install anti-malware software.Google: Driverless cars are mastering city streetsLOS ANGELES Google says cars it has programmed to drive themselves have started to master the navigation of city streets and the challenges they bring, from jaywalkers to weaving bicyclists a critical milestone for any commercially available self-driving car technology. Despite the progress over the past year, the cars have plenty of learning to do before 2017, when the Silicon Valley tech giant hopes to get the technology to the public. None of the traditional automakers has been so bullish. Instead, they have rolled out features incrementally, including technology that brakes and accelerates in stop-and-go traffic or keeps cars in their lanes. Googles self-driving cars already can navigate freeways comfortably, albeit with a driver ready to take control. In a new blog post, the projects leader said test cars now can handle thousands of urban situations that would have stumped them a year or two ago. From wire reports
OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 2014 Avante staff exemplary in its careMy 94-year-old mother Dottie recently spent three months at Avante at Inverness Rehabilitation Hospital, recovering from a broken thigh bone and subsequent surgery. Although Mom lives in Fort Lauderdale and had her surgery there this past Christmas, I felt it was best to have her rehabilitation closer to where I live, here in Citrus County. There are many local choices for rehab hospitals, and since I was unfamiliar with these facilities, I turned to the Internet for some help. My research revealed that Avante at Inverness received the highest possible rating (5 out of 5 stars) given by US News and World Report, one of the few rehab centers in Citrus County to achieve such a distinction. This top ranking and the facilitys location across the street from Citrus Memorial hospital were crucial in my choice of Avante. (http//health. usnews.com/best-nursinghomes/area/fl/avante-atinverness-inc-105308) My initial impression of Avante was that of a small, somewhat worn facility. Private rooms are rare and the food served can best be described as adequate. From day one, however, I noted that the patient rooms, bathrooms and common areas were kept in an extremely clean condition. An additional initial plus was the competence and professionalism exhibited by the administrators and admissions officers. Perhaps most importantly, I wish to comment on the staff at Avante. I am a retired physician and my wife is a retired nurse. We both have worked and trained in Harvard-affiliated hospitals in Boston, which are often considered to be the worlds medical mecca for exemplary care. But we have come to recognize over our career lifetimes that patient outcomes are not determined by the name on the front door of the facility or the amenities in the visitors lounge. Physical and mental improvement is most directly influenced by the individual care that is given at the bedside, and additionally in my mothers case, in the Physical Therapy Department. It is in these areas where Avante truly shines and justifies its five-star rating. Words such as intelligent, caring, compassionate, friendly, competent, responsive and attentive come to mind in describing the Avante staff. Their mood is unusually upbeat with lots of smiles and laughter. A patient receiving an occasional hug and kiss on the cheek is not a rarity. Regular activities and entertainment often make the patients forget they are in a rehabilitation hospital. To the residents of Citrus County, we wish to point out this hidden gem right here in your back yard. To the administrators, admissions officers, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing aides, physical therapists, occupational therapists, kitchen staff, social worker, maintenance workers and others at Avante of Inverness, I salute you and give you heartfelt thanks from our entire family. My mother, Dottie, has benefited greatly from your personal efforts.Ted Silver, M.D., and Sally Silver, R.N. Hernando Recently Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesnt have one. But Clintons words make a lot more sense when seen not as a nonanswer to a specific question, but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the Women in the World meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Timescolumnist Thomas Friedman, asked softball after softball. (Sample: Noting Clintons daughter Chelsea, Friedman asked: What have you learned from her?) Toward the end, Friedman turned to Clinton and said: When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of, and what do you feel was unfinished, maybe love to have another crack at someday? Clinton and the audience laughed, because another crack at someday seemed an obvious back-door way of asking whether Clinton will run for president in 2016. But then she answered, and revealed something critically important about her intentions. Look, I really see my role as secretary, and in fact, leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race, Clinton said. I mean, you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasnt been finished may go on to be finished ... The answer seemed to concede that there is no single, momentous thing Clinton can point to as having achieved during her years as the nations top diplomat. As she went on, Clinton instead linked herself to President Obamas achievements at least the Democratic version of them not in the field of foreign affairs, but at home. We had the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, we had two wars, we had continuing threats from all kinds of corners around the world, Clinton said. Obama told her his top priority had to be dealing with the economic crisis, so he asked her to represent us around the world. Clintons job was to make it clear to the rest of the world that we were going to get our house in order. But what did in order mean? Clinton described it this way: We were going to stimulate and grow and get back to positive growth and work with our friends and partners. On the basis of that stimulate and grow policy, Clinton continued, the United States returned to strength and can now deal with foreign crises like Ukraine without having to worry about a world economic collapse. I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense, she said. That, you know, once again, people began to rely on us, to look at us as, you know, setting the values, setting the standards. Clinton promised to provide a lot of particulars in her upcoming memoir, due in June. But those last few words are likely to be the books message: She restored American leadership. Without any landmark achievement, she will claim credit along with the president, of course for restoring Americas place in the world. Its a vague and highly debatable argument. And in the end, at the Women in the World gathering, Clinton seemed to rely mostly on the Obama administrations domestic accomplishments or at least her version of them to shore up the case for her performance as Secretary of State. That is pretty much a non sequitur. But in a larger sense, the relay race image may turn out to be the key to Hillary Clintons run for president. The campaign theme is pretty easy to sketch out. Her husband, President Bill Clinton, took the baton and ran with it, starting a period of great American progress. President George W. Bush dropped it, disastrously, but then Barack Obama picked up the Clinton baton and led America to recovery. Now its time to pass the baton yet again. Should American voters give it to another Republican, who will surely mess things up like Bush, or should they hand it to Hillary Clinton, who will continue the magnificent work her husband began more than 20 years ago? The relay race theme allows Hillary Clinton to surf on her husbands and her old boss accomplishments, reaching many years into the past, without showcasing her own lackluster record. For Democrats, it will be a happy story. For everyone else, it could be a hard sell.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

You get the coffee started and head outside to pick up the paper. Walking down the driveway, you feel summer surround you immediately. Its August, and it will be 90 by noon. You survey your lawn, note the brown patches, curse the watering restrictions and hope for rain. As you pick up the paper, a headline catches your eye: Well permit causes concern. Back at the table, you read that the manager of the nearby national wildlife refuge is scratching his head over the water management districts issuance of a withdrawal permit thats going to allow a Marion County company to pull 76,700 gallons of water a day out of the aquifer from a site in Crystal River to sell to a bottler at a time when, amid a two-year drought, flows to rivers and springs are steadily declining. As you read on, it gets worse: Its a 10-year permit, the withdrawals wont be metered, and the permit cost the company less than your monthly water bill. You look back at your lawn. Now youre angry. If it seems unfair, thats because it is. For decades now, the drivers of state water policy have been urging and enforcing conservation by homeowners while simultaneously permitting private companies to pull tens of millions of gallons from the aquifer. In the same breath, water management districts tell you how important it is to follow watering restrictions, set up rain barrels and use low-flow fixtures and appliances and they tell you that these permits arent cause for concern and that their environmental impact is negligible. If that seems inconsistent, thats because it is: The folks employed by the district know very well that those kinds of permits are irresponsible, but they dont have the authority to deny the requests because state law mandates approval based on the companys fulfillment of minimal criteria. If that doesnt inspire you to conserve water, were not surprised. Just as we all share the water that flows beneath us, we all share a stake in its stewardship. If were serious about the need to preserve our natural resources, its going to take more than the efforts of individuals: Its going to take government action, especially at the state level. Until state agencies start treating commercial use of water as we do residential use of water and that means metering, monitoring and realistic pricing were only flirting with responsibility. To that end, heres something that should inspire you: Crystal River is bucking the tide. The city is set to break ground on a pipeline thats going to pump nearly a million gallons of reclaimed water a day to Duke Energys complex north of town, sparing the company the need to pull that water from the ground. Its a project that reminds us that while most of us are powerless to circumvent the misguided state policies that force water management districts to issue permits they know counteract their mission, were not helpless. THE ISSUE:Crystal River well plan will significantly reduce groundwater withdrawals by Duke Energy.OUR OPINION:Citys efforts laudable and necessary, but not enough. LETTERto the Editor Elected to spendThe people of Citrus County do not recognize that the BOCC has been paid for years to sit on chairs so they can spend thousands of dollars to buy new ones. Any decisions that they need to make, they hire someone else to make them. If the people of Citrus County do not realize this, they are not well educated in this field. Im not saying theyre stupid; Im just saying they are not educated under these circumstances and its about time people started paying attention.Speed up and signalIts almost amusing to read some of these articles in the paper on Sound Off. But the one that really got my attention was the one that wrote on Dangerous roads, claiming that (County Road) 491 in Beverly Hills is a speedway now and people are doing 70 mph. I guess Id like to know how theyre clocking. Do they have a device to do that? The police and state troopers are the only ones thats supposed to be able to do that. But theres a lot of people that ride that left lane that are not making a left turn. Theyre driving very slow and Ill let you guess their age and they block it so you dont know if theyre going to pull to the right or what theyre going to do. People should stay on one side of the road, allow a passing lane, as it was designed originally, and if they have to make a turn, thats what a turn signal on a car is for. And probably 90 percent of the people in this county dont even know what that stick is for beside the steering wheel probably just to hang their keychain on. But if you make a signal to properly turn, youd have no problem at all. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects.

Lecanto, Florida 34461 Remote Parking Free Transporation Realtors Assoc. Hwy 44, 7/10 of a mile east of Hwy 491 www.HPH-Hospice.org Taxpayers merit first considerationI detected recently, a rise in discontent with the decisions affecting our county. I refer to the Sugarmill Woods invasion; the $96,000 landfill study; the tollway extension; the $4 million buy, rent or build Meadowcrest property; CMH hospital transfer; the (always popular) Ottawa causeway; shovelready lots and plots; and probably everything Scott Adams and Rebecca Bays vote no on. Though there are many complaints, few solutions or causes have surfaced. A cause and effect situation with the cause absent. A few weeks ago when I read the Chroniclespecial on the new and influential Economic Development Council, I felt a vacuum forming. I support the concept, but not the unintended consequences. The article listed by priority, in bold-face type, what is commonly referred to as purpose or goals, priorities. Can you remember No. 1? Never mind, I dont either, but I do know what was not No. 1. Our goal is first and foremost to research, record and commit to addressing the existing, current needs and wants of the community taxpayer residents. If you look at the questionable expenses that have caused the public to rise in protest, they are mostly, if not all, expenses to favor the future residents or visitors to our county, not necessarily what our current residents first need and want. Space allowing, I could enumerate the illogical decisions as viewed by the taxpayers, though not necessarily by the local government or the BOCC. Sugarmill Woods is an example: Those in power will consider allowing the construction of homes for some 5,000 people (many in another county) who in 15 or 20 years will be on the tax rolls, while the current residents who have been paying taxes for maybe decades are then in their graves. And in the process, this messy construction and destructive traffic simultaneously ruins these residents street landscape and lowers property values in the process. A Perfect Storm. I dont live in Sugarmill Woods, but taxpayers, Citrus Countys customers, do. Find another way. The tollway extension has robbed our attention for beyond 10 years. Advocates fought long and hard, but through attrition the fight has waned. Most folks who moved to our county 10 to 15 years ago did not come praying that a toll road would someday service their grandchildren. How many hours and dollars have been wasted by everybody on this futuristic gift to mankind? The state will decide. It may appear to some that county priorities have shifted to a grand scheme often given in return for a study (citizen expense) that may not parallel our community priorities. We used to be described, not complimentarily, as a sleepy little fishing village. There are many who escaped Chicago or Detroit or Miami and sought a sleepy little village. I believe most citizens can tolerate some growth. Many know it is impossible to hide our gem from the crowds. Many wonder if we have to lure them, cajole them, bribe them to share, and maybe consume, our Shangri-La. If it needs explanation, the message here is protect, repair and respect the needs of county citizens first. Protect us from intruders who will rob us of our tax-paid-for rights and services. Stand by Sugarmill Woods. And, here is a zinger revive Beverly Hills. How could you not? The BOCC hopes it will go away it needs life support! Why would we allow a ghetto to grow in the center of our county? It will be that if the county does not step up with a plan to revive Beverly Hills. I dont live there either, but a lot of deserving residents do.Ted LaPorte Hernando Maintain GOP controlRecently I observed a group of political panelists discussing the reluctance of some states to take the federal funding for Medicaid. After all, they said the money is entirely free. All panelists agreed. Obviously, no thought was given to their statements. Free is never free. Someone always pays. In this case, as in many cases, that money is either borrowed or created with Federal Reserve notes. Either way, taxpaying individuals pay, since their earnings are diluted whenever the federal government distributes dollars it does not have. The bigger issue here is what happens to the states when the federal government changes the rules or when the subsidy expires. Once the program in instituted, the states could be in a real bind if the feds renege. How many times have the rules been changed in regard to health insurance (often called health care) in the past few months? Obamacare is here to stay unless it totally destroys our economy. In the meantime, the administration is going to great lengths in an effort to keep irresponsible elected officials in office. If the American people do not wake up this year and force a change, we may never have a chance to recover. This year, assuring Republican control of the Senate and maintaining Republican control of the House is the best hope we have. Then it will be up to the voting public to insist that the new Congress give us truly responsible leadership. Robert E. Hagaman Homosassa Letters to THE EDITOR
U.S. Rep pleads not guilty to fraudNEW YORK U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm has been indicted on mail, wire and tax fraud charges, but he said the case is trumped up. The Staten Island Republican was arrested Monday and pleaded not guilty to a 20-count federal indictment. He has been released on $400,000 bail. Grimm said the government framed him. He said investigators couldnt make a campaign finance case against him stick, so they trumped up the fraud accusations. He said he is the victim of a political witch hunt. Grimm is a former FBI agent who left the bureau in the mid-2000s. He was elected in 2010.Wreckage of plane found RICHMOND, Calif. Authorities said they located the wreckage of a small plane that crashed into San Francisco Bay after colliding with another aircraft Monday. Contra Costa County sheriffs spokesman Jimmy Lee said crews located the Cessna on but could not immediately say whether the pilot was also found. The search began Sunday afternoon when the Cessna 210 and a Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20 collided in mid-air. The pilot of the vintage airplane landed safely, but the Cessna crashed into the water. The names of the pilots havent been released. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating. Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE From wire reports Storms rip through Midwest, South Associated PressJACKSON, Miss. Authorities in Mississippi said at least one person died and dozens of people were injured a tornado outbreak Monday. Lee County Coroner Carolyn Gillentine Green said a woman died in a traffic accident during the storm in Verona, south of Tupelo. Green said the vehicle may have been blown off of Palmetto Road or hydroplaned. The victim was not immediately identified. University of Mississippi Medical Center spokesman Jack Mazurak said at least 45 people were injured in Winston County. The medical center is a communications hub for emergencies set up after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. Evacuations were underway at the Winton Medical Center, which was heavily damaged. No deaths were reported there, but at least six patients were being taken to hospitals in Columbus, Mazurak said. Deborah Pugh, spokeswoman for the Northeast Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, said the hospital admitted 24 patients. She said 20 had minor injuries and were expected to be treated and released. Four others were undergoing further evaluation. Gov. Phil Bryant earlier in the day declared a state of emergency in advance of the expected bad weather. In Georgia, forecasters issued a tornado watch Monday that included 17 counties in northwest Georgia. The tornado watch was set to expire at 3 a.m. Tuesday. Forecasters earlier Monday evening also issued a tornado warning for Coweta, Meriwether, Troup and Heard counties in western Georgia. In Arkansas, a half-mile-wide tornado carved an 80-mile path of destruction through the Little Rock suburbs Sunday evening, killing at least 15 people, flattening rows of homes, shredding cars along a highway and demolishing a brand-new school before it even had a chance to open. Officials said the death toll could have been worse if residents hadnt piled into underground storm shelters and fortified safe rooms after listening to forecasts on TV and radio, getting cellphone alerts or calls or texts from loved ones, and hearing sirens blare through their neighborhoods. Also on peoples minds: memories of a weaker tornado that smashed through on April 25, 2011. It took nearly the same path and killed at least four people. You had people breaking down because they were reliving three years ago, Kimber Standridge said of the scene inside the community shelter, which she said was packed with perhaps more than 100 people. Standridge and a friend had gathered up seven children they were watching and sped through the streets just minutes before the twister hit. When they shut the doors, we knew it was on us, Standridge said. Everybody hunkered down. There were a lot of people doing prayer circles, holding hands and praying. Caro and Standridge said the shelter was so solid they barely felt or heard the tornado. It was among a rash of twisters and violent storms across the Midwest and South that killed 17 people in all on Sunday. With forecasters warning of more of the same Monday across the South, a large tornado damaged homes and downed trees and power lines around Tupelo, Miss. There were no immediate reports of any injuries. Most of the dead in Arkansas were killed in their homes in and around Vilonia, population 3,800. Firefighters on Monday searched for anyone trapped amid the piles of splintered wood and belongings strewn across yards. Hospitals took in more than 100 patients. The tornado that hit the town and nearby Mayflower was probably the nations strongest so far this year on the 0-to-5 EF scale, with the potential to be at least an EF3, which means winds greater than 136 mph, National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Hood said. It wrecked cars and trucks along Interstate 40 north of Little Rock. Also among the ruins was a new $14 million intermediate school that had been set to open this fall. Survey: China lending a global threat Associated PressWASHINGTON Just as the global economy has all but recovered from debt-fueled crises in the United States and Europe, economists have a new worry: China. They see a lending bubble there that threatens global growth unless Beijing defuses it. Thats the view that emerges from an Associated Press survey this month of 30 economists. Still, the economists remain optimistic that Beijings high-stakes drive to reform its economy the worlds secondlargest will bolster Chinese banks, ease the lending bubble and benefit U.S. exporters in the long run. The source of concern is a surge in lending by Chinese banks. The lending was initially encouraged by the government during the 2008 global financial crisis to fuel growth. On Monday, the International Monetary Fund issued a warning about Chinas private debt. It released a report citing rising vulnerabilities in Chinas financial system, including lending outside traditional banks. Lending by that shadow banking system now equals onequarter of Chinas economy, the report said. Ukraine mayor shot, protestors attackedKIEV, Ukraine The mayor of Ukraines secondlargest city was shot in the back Monday and hundreds of men attacked a peaceful pro-Ukraine rally with batons, bricks and stun grenades, wounding dozens as tensions soared in Ukraines volatile east.

An NAIA school and a member of the Appalachian Athletic Conference, Point (located in West Point, Georgia) will provide Clark with the platform he wants. Theyre a Christian college and I wanted to go to a smaller school, Clark said. Just because of the smaller classes, and I didnt want to get overwhelmed, I wanted to get a feel for the school. What Clark a 5-foot-9, 185-pound fullback gave Citrus was an inside threat, a runner who could pound the ball up the middle, between the tackles, with the leg drive to turn a small gain into a big one. Thats something Clark did well: In his senior season, he gained 565 yards rushing, the second-highest total on the team. But perhaps more impressive was his 6.1 yards per carry average. Hes going to be an excellent player for them because he fits their program very well, former Citrus assistant coach Chris Stephenson said. What they do, thats what he does best.

That message will come today, when NBA Commissioner Adam Silver holds a news conference in New York where he could reveal sanctions the league will impose on Sterling. A suspension of indefinite length and hefty fine Silver can issue one of up to $1 million without approval of owners are possible options. However, it remains unclear how far Silvers powers can reach at this point, even though the NBA constitution gives the commissioners office a lot of latitude to protect the games best interest. Many players simply want Sterling ousted, with Lakers star Kobe Bryant tweeting he should not continue owning the clippers. It needs to be handled in the right way, Rivers said. I dont even know what the right way is. I have a hunch. But I dont know. The Clippers had Monday off, with Rivers saying he wanted his team to try and regroup mentally after a whirlwind weekend where Sterlings alleged comments were revealed, first by TMZ and then in another recording posted on Deadspin. The NBA has not said if it was able to authenticate the tapes, but Sterlings wife told KABC-TV in Los Angeles that it was her husband on the recordings. Rivers, who has declined a chance to speak with his boss, believes Sterling is on the tape. I cant tell you how upset I am, Rivers said.

Associated PressCHICAGO Alejandro De Aza hit a two-run homer and Adam Eaton and Marcus Semien had two-run doubles, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 7-3 comeback victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. White Sox slugger Jose Abreu, named American League coplayer of the week earlier in the day, went 2 for 4 with a walk and an RBI, his 32nd. But it was the lesser trio that did most of the damage, driving in five of the seven runs. The White Sox (14-13) move above .500 by taking three of four from Tampa. It was Chicagos third series win this season. Andre Rienzo (2-0) allowed five hits and three runs two earned in six innings to get the win. Jake Odorizzi (1-3) allowed eight hits and four runs in 4 1/3 innings to get the loss.American League Athletics 4, Rangers 0ARLINGTON, Texas Sonny Gray threw a three-hitter for his first career complete game and the Oakland Athletics beat Texas 4-0 in Rangers ace Yu Darvishs shortest outing in the major leagues. Gray (4-1) allowed only three singles while striking out six. Texas got only one runner to third base against the righthander, who threw two wild pitches in the sixth after Robinson Chirinos singled. Darvish (1-1) was gone after 3 1/3 innings, pulled after walking No. 9 batter Eric Sogard for the second time. Those were the only two walks for the righthander, who allowed four runs and six hits while throwing 83 pitches (45 strikes). Darvish is winless his last nine home starts. Josh Donaldson had a two-run single in the third, and the As made it 4-0 an inning later when Josh Reddick had an RBI triple before coming home on Daric Bartons sacrifice fly. Gray, in his 16th career start, threw 73 of his 108 pitches for strikes. Oakland and Texas entered tied for the AL West lead and the leagues best record at 15-10. The Rangers, shut out for the first time this season, had swept a three-game series in Oakland last week. Darvish made his 66th start for the Rangers since signing with them from Japan before the 2012 season. His shortest previous MLB outing had been four innings at Seattle on May 21, 2012, and he had since gone at least five innings in 56 consecutive starts.

George Kelly hit two and Ross Youngs and Dave Bancroft hit the others. 1931 Wes Ferrell of the Cleveland Indians pitched a 7-0 no-hitter over the St. Louis Browns, including his brother Rick. Wes also knocked in four runs with a homer and a double. 1933 In a strange play at home plate, catcher Luke Sewell of the Washington Senators tagged out two Yankees runners on the same play. Lou Gehrig had held up, thinking a fly ball would be caught. Dixie Walker closed up on him, and both were tagged out trying to score. 1981 Steve Carlton struck out Montreals Tim Wallach in the first inning of the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 victory over the visiting Expos to become the sixth major league pitcher and first left-hander to strike out 3,000 batters. 1986 Roger Clemens set a major league record by striking out 20 batters as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners 3-1. 1987 Andre Dawson had five hits and hit for the cycle to lead the Chicago Cubs to an 8-4 victory the San Francisco Giants. 1988 The Baltimore Orioles ended their 21-game losing streak by winning their first game of the season, 9-0 over the Chicago White Sox on a combined fourhitter by Mark Williamson and Dave Schmidt. 1994 Kirk Rueter of Montreal became the first major league pitcher since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 to start his career with a 10-0 record when the Expos beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2. 2001 Geoff Jenkins homered twice, tying a major league record with five homers in two games to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-0 win over the Montreal Expos. Jenkins is the 22nd player to hit five in two games and the first NL player to do it in 10 years. 2005 In the first matchup between 300-game winners in almost 18 years, the Cubs Greg Maddux outdueled the Astros Roger Clemens in Chicagos 3-2 win over Houston. Maddux earned his first win of season and 306th of his career, allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings. 2006 Albert Pujols set a major league record with his 14th homer in April, a tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning that sent St. Louis to a 2-1 victory over Washington. Pujols broke the mark for homers in April held by Ken Griffey Jr. (1997) and Luis Gonzalez (2001). 2007 Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki had an unassisted triple play in the seventh inning of the Rockies 9-7 win over Atlanta. It was the 13th unassisted triple play in major league history and the first since 2003. 2010 Toronto catcher John Buck homered in each of his first three at-bats to lead the Blue Jays to a 6-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. 2013 Brandon Moss hit his second home run of the night with two outs in the bottom of the 19th inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 10-8 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The teams were on the field for 6 hours, 32 minutes. By time, it was the longest game ever played in Oakland and the longest in Angels history.

Instead, manager Fredi Gonzalez faces a different problem for the Braves, who were off on Monday: How does he make room for another arm in a rotation enjoying the majors best opening month in 100 years? Theres no weak link as the starters 1.57 ERA easily leads the majors. The rotation was a big question after Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm departed as free agents. The issue reached crisis stage when Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy needed season-ending Tommy John surgeries in spring training. Veterans Ervin Santana and Aaron Harang have joined Julio Teheran and Alex Wood as the staffs new leaders on the firstplace Braves. Minor, who was a projected top starter, is expected to come off the disabled list this week. Rookie David Hale could lose his spot, but its no easy decision for Gonzalez. Hale is 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in four starts and is coming off an outstanding win. Hale allowed only two hits over eight innings in a 4-1 win over the Reds on Saturday night, facing the minimum 21 batters over his last seven innings. A tough call? Sure, Gonzalez said. Were pitching well, were playing well. You dont want to disrupt that. The staff has posted numbers through 24 games unmatched by any modern staff including the Braves rotation of the 1990s with 2014 Hall of Fame inductees Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, plus John Smoltz. According to STATS, the 1.57 ERA through 24 games matches baseballs best start since the 1914 White Sox opened with a 1.36 mark. The 1915 Phillies starters also had a 1.57 ERA through 24 games. This year, St. Louis is second in the majors with its 2.24 ERA. At 17-7, the NL East-leading Braves open a series at Miami on Tuesday night. Wood will face Marlins ace Jose Fernandez in a rematch of a memorable duel on April 22 when the two combined for 25 strikeouts and no walks in Miamis 1-0 win. Low-scoring games are the rule for the Braves this month. Atlanta completed a three-game sweep of the Reds on Sunday with a 1-0 win in 10 innings, with Teheran matching Johnny Cuetos eight scoreless innings. The Braves already have played five 1-0 games including two hard-luck losses by Wood. Id rather have it this way than the other, when youre scoring 14 runs and giving up 13 every night, Gonzalez said. Our bats will pick up, sooner or later. Its fun. Every once in a while, you look at the scoreboard and somebody is beating somebody 8-2 in the ninth and you go, I wish Id get one of those every once in a while, he said. Before this year, the best opening month for a Braves rotation in the modern era was a 2.37 ERA in 1997, according to STATS. Harang, who leads the majors with his 0.85 ERA, is the biggest surprise. The 35-year-old journeyman was released by Cleveland in spring training and signed with the Braves. Teheran, seventh at 1.47, said matching scoreless innings with Cueto helps him believe he deserves to be ranked with baseballs best starters. Now I feel like one of those guys, said Teheran, who was 14-8 with a 3.20 ERA in his 2013 breakout season. Teheran is only 23. I know how good he can be, Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons said. Hes proving to people that he deserves to be the ace for the team. Wood also is 23. Minor and Hale are 26. Minor was 13-9 with a 3.21 ERA last year. He had urinary tract surgery on Dec. 31, which pushed back his spring schedule. He then developed the shoulder soreness and was shut down in spring training. Entering this season, Minor had the fourth-best ERA (2.90) since the 2012 AllStar break, so the Braves have to make room for the left-hander. Hale could be sent to the minors or to the bullpen. An even tougher decision could come soon when Floyd, recovering from Tommy John surgery early in the 2013 season with the White Sox, also is ready. Gonzalez just shook his head as he avoided the question. One at a time, please, he said. Associated PressAtlanta starting pitcher Julio Teheran throws Sunday in the first inning against the Cincinnati Reds in Atlanta.
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE in both the shortand long-term. Rivers team will host Golden State about 8 1/2 hours after Silver is scheduled to speak in a crucial Game 5 of the teams Western Conference firstround series, knotted now at two games apiece. Meanwhile, the Clippers are already taking hits in other ways over Sterlings alleged comments. CarMax and Virgin America announced they are ending their sponsorships of the team, and Kia Motors America plans to suspend its advertising and sponsorship activities with the franchise. Insurer State Farm said it will be taking a pause in our relationship with the organization, though the popular ad campaign featuring Clippers guard Chris Paul will continue, as will the companys initiatives with the NBA. Los Angeles-based AQUAhydrate launched by rap mogul Sean P Diddy Combs and actor Mark Wahlberg also said it was suspending its sponsorship in the wake of Sterlings alleged intolerable comments ... until the NBA completes its investigation. Losing sponsors would not seem to be an issue that only hurts the Clippers, either. It could potentially impact bottom lines across the league because of revenue sharing and Basketball Related Income, or BRI. The opportunity before Commissioner Silver to take an uncompromising stand against any form of prejudice in the NBA is unprecedented in the league, said Marc H. Morial, the president and CEO of the National Urban League. The NAACP said it has decided not to honor Sterling with a previously announced lifetime achievement award from its Los Angeles chapter. The NAACP also plans to return an undisclosed amount of donations the Clippers owner has made to the organization. Several team owners have condemned the alleged remarks in recent days, including Charlottes Michael Jordan, Miamis Micky Arison, Washingtons Ted Leonsis and Indianas Herb Simon. Regardless of what happens today, the saga surely will continue. And if Sterling is suspended, someone would likely have to be appointed to run the team, if even on an interim basis. Plus, there are numerous legal issues at play, including whether the recording was legally made and the matter of Sterlings wife suing the woman purported to be on the tape with Sterling. Those issues, however, are not expected to play an immediate role in how the league decides to proceed. Clearly, theres things that have happened, but I dont know what they could have done in the past, Rivers said. I know now that there seems to be proof that they can do something now. And so Im not worried about the past Im worried about now and how we handle this. I think this is going to be handled the right way. I really have a lot of faith in Adam and the league.

Simply put, Clark has all the ingredients to be a successful college-level player, including one that Stephenson said showed in particular whenever he played defense: He likes to hit. Clark said he may get a look on defense, but likely hell be utilizing his skills at running back. Im a downhill running back, he said. I can do a little bit of outside (running). He knows his strengths, and he knows what he has to do better. Right now, I have to improve my acceleration and my top-end speed, he said. If that requires more time in the weight room, Clarks ready for the challenge. Thats something he said hell miss most about Citrus. Ill miss the hard work and dedication. Its like a family, he said. Stephenson believes Clark will make an immediate impression with the Skyhawks. Hes incredibly strong, he said. Hes got that elusive quickness and his leg drive, when he gets the ball he doesnt lose a yard. Its a testament to what hes done in the weight room. Hes just a great athlete. Hes so intelligent, he makes great decisions. Looks like he made another one. CLARKContinued from Page B1 Crystal Rivers Tiffany MacDonald survived a few rocky moments to earn the pitching win. The Pirates also have an experienced pitcher in McCale Wilson if needed. The key offensive hits against Lake Weir showed that the Pirates, just like the Rattlers, can get offense from a variety of sources. Bridget Whitleys fifthinning double broke a 4-4 tie, and an error on Wilsons ensuing grounder added another run. Alexa Macks tworun double in the seventh put the game out of reach. We have been working very hard on our team hitting its goals, Rash said. Last week the girls came to practice, set a standard goal and went out Thursday night and delivered what they had practiced. These girls are capable of anything they set their minds to. For Crystal River to succeed, its defense must be very effective. Fortunately for the Pirates, they have senior shortstop Marissa Pool and junior catcher Dani Gomez. Both are extremely strong at their positions, and against Belleview, theyll have to be. Gomez in particular. The Rattlers have 151 stolen bases in 154 attempts, with seven players in double figures in steals. Day has 35 stolen bases and Oglesby has 27, with three others with more than 15. That could be quite a challenge for Gomez, but thus far this season she has been spectacular in denying base stealers. If the Pirates can put runs on the board early and limit their mistakes, while keeping the Rattlers base runners under control, they could be the ones to advance to the Regional final.

B4TUESDAY, APRIL29, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Hall of Fame coach Jack Ramsay dies at 89 Led Portland to 1977 NBA title Associated PressMIAMI Jack Ramsay, a Hall of Fame coach who led the Portland Trail Blazers to the 1977 NBA championship before he became one of the NBAs most respected broadcasters, has died following a long battle with cancer. He was 89. His family announced his death, saying he led the greatest life that one could lead. Ramsay coached in the NBA for parts of 21 seasons before embarking on a second career as an NBA analyst for ESPN. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2004 and later battled growths and tumors that spread to his legs, lungs and brain, as well as prostate cancer and most recently a marrow syndrome. His affinity for fitness never wavered, though. Ramsay, who competed in at least 20 triathlons during his life, worked out regularly into his 80s, even as he battled the various forms of cancer. He often spoke of his love of swimming in the Gulf of Mexico near his home in Naples, or jogging in a pool or from wall to wall in his hotel room when on NBA assignments. Hes probably forgotten more about the game than I know, Miami Heat coach and president Pat Riley once said of Ramsay, whom he counted as a close friend. Ramsay also spent several years late in life caring for his wife, Jean, who was diagnosed in 2001 with Alzheimers disease. She died in 2010. He was that rarest of men with a unique style that was inspirational and motivational about basketball and life itself, said Paul Allen, who owns the Trail Blazers. Ramsay enjoyed enormous popularity within the league. To commemorate his 89th birthday this year, Portland coach Terry Stotts wore a loud checkered jacket and open-collared shirt for a Blazers game a nod to how Ramsay dressed when he coached the club. Jacks life is a beacon which guides us all, Bill Walton, who was on Ramsays 1977 title team in Portland, told USA Today in 2007. He is our moral compass, our spiritual inspiration. He represents the conquest of substance over hype. He is a true saint of circumstance. John T. Ramsay was born Feb. 21, 1925, in Philadelphia and enrolled at Saint Josephs in 1942, eventually becoming captain of the basketball team there for his senior season. He earned a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 1949, explaining the Dr. Jack moniker by which most players and fans knew him. Ramsays biggest impact on Hawk Hill would be when he started coaching his alma mater in 1955. He was wildly successful there, going 234-72 and taking the Hawks to the NCAA tournament seven times and the Final Four in 1961. Great man, Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson, who played at Saint Josephs, wrote on Twitter. The Greatest Hawk ever. He will be missed but never Forgotten. To Ramsay, the most significant part of the Saint Josephs years was this: I met my wife there, he said. He was a founding father of sorts for the growth of the Big 5, the annual Philadelphia basketball series involving Saint Josephs, La Salle, Penn, Villanova and Temple. Ramsay became coach of the Philadelphia 76ers in 1968, joined the Buffalo Braves in 1972 and brought his craft to Portland in 1976. With a team featuring Walton and Maurice Lucas, he delivered an NBA championship in his first season, beating the 76ers in six games in the final series. For me, it was a once-in-alifetime experience and one that I will cherish forever, Ramsay said in a 1997 interview. Indeed, that was his lone NBA title. Walton got hurt the next year, crippling Portlands chances of getting back to championship form during that era. Ramsay coached the Blazers for nine more seasons without another trip to the finals. He spent the final three years of his NBA coaching career in Indiana, resigning from the Pacers in 1988 after the team started 0-7. Ramsay was 864-783 in his NBA career and in 1996 was honored as one of the leagues top 10 alltime coaches. When he left the Pacers, Ramsay carefully did not use the word retire, and began working as a television analyst on 76ers games. Eventually, he worked on Heat television broadcasts for eight seasons before moving full time to ESPN for radio and TV commentating before the 2000-01 season. So grateful that his path crossed ours, his former Heat broadcast partner Eric Reid wrote on Twitter early Monday. Hall of Fame coach and man. Ramsays funeral is Thursday. Associated PressThis undated photo provided by Saint Josephs University shows the schools basketball coach Jack Ramsay, center, when his team won his 200th career game. Ramsay, a Hall of Fame coach who led the Portland Trail Blazers to the 1977 NBA championship before he became one of the leagues most respected broadcasters, has died following a long battle with cancer. He was 89. Bucs kicker recovered from Achilles injury Associated PressTAMPA Connor Barth says he never doubted he would kick again for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The seventh-year pro missed all of last season after tearing the Achilles tendon in his right foot during a charity basketball game. Hes recovered from the injury and confident hell perform as well as ever in 2014. Barth is the most accurate field goal kicker in franchise history, converting 84.3 percent of his attempts since joining the Bucs in 2009. He was hurt last summer, shortly before the start of training camp, leaving the team scrambling for a replacement. And while no could have blamed him for questioning whether hed ever regain his pre-injury form, Barth insists the thought never entered his mind. You never want to think like that. Ive always had a positive attitude. I always feel I can come back strong from things, Barth said. Fifteen years ago, maybe yes my career would have been over, he added. But the technology now, and the way these doctors can do different surgeries, I honestly think itll be stronger than its ever been. The former North Carolina standout was headed toward the second season of a four-year, $13.2 million contract when he was injured during a charity basketball game in his hometown of Wilmington. He began kicking again in October and by January rebuilt strength in his right leg to the point he was hitting 61-yard field goals. Barth made a clubrecord 92.9 percent of his field goal attempts in 2011, when he hit 26 of 28. He set a team single-season mark with six of 50-plus yards in 2012, and led the NFL with 33 field goals of 40-plus yards over those two seasons. The 28-year-old said it was difficult sitting out a year ago, when the Bucs struggled to a 4-12 record. It was tough. I never missed a game all the way back to high school, Barth said. But I got a year off to rest my leg. I guess thats the positive thing out of it. The Bucs signed Lawrence Tynes as a replacement, but the veteran kicker who helped the New York Giants win two Super Bowls never got on the field for a game. He was sidelined by an ingrown toenail on his kicking foot early in training camp, then was diagnosed with a MRSA infection in August. The team eventually brought in Rian Lindell, who had been released by Buffalo, to handle the job. Barth, who proclaimed hes completely healed, is excited to be back on the field during offseason workouts. He also participated in last weeks voluntary minicamp. He said theres a positive vibe in the locker room, and that new coach Lovie Smith has a lot to do with it. Its just different around here. I think were going to have a good year, Barth said, noting that in six seasons with Tampa Bay and the Kansas City Chiefs hes yet to be part of a team thats made the playoffs. We have a lot of really good players. Weve just got to put it together. Associated PressTampa Bays Connor Barth follows through on a kick April 23 during a voluntary minicamp practice in Tampa. The sixth-year pro missed all of last season after rupturing the Achilles tendon in his right foot during a charity basketball game, and hes confident hell return as good as ever in 2014.

California Chrome has 77-year-old trainer dreaming Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Art Sherman knows what its like to be at the Kentucky Derby with a brilliant colt that wins the race. He just hasnt done it in 59 years. In 1955, Sherman was an 18-year-old exercise rider for Swaps, a California-bred chestnut colt who beat Nashua to wear the garland of roses on the first Saturday in May. I was just a kid then and just glad to be learning, he said. Now hes 77 and bringing his own California-bred chestnut to Churchill Downs, where California Chrome is the likely favorite. The colt with the modest pedigree and impressive resume traveled outside his home state for the first time Monday. He flew to Churchill Downs, where hell start getting used to the surface with a jog Tuesday. Hell look around and know hes at a racetrack and feel right at home, Sherman said. Thats the way he is. California Chrome has won his last four races by a combined 24 1/4 lengths, including the $1 million Santa Anita Derby. Hes the kind of horse you dream about, Sherman said. California Chrome finished first in the Derby points leaderboard that determines the maximum 20-horse field for the 1 1/4-mile race. Hes won six of 10 career starts and has already topped $1 million in earnings. Pretty impressive for a colt from humble beginnings. His mother, named Not For Love, won just one race. She was purchased for $8,000 by Steve Coburn and Perry Martin, a move that prompted a trainer to call them dumb asses for getting involved in racing. Feeling inspired, Coburn and Martin named their operation DAP Racing, which stands for Dumb Ass Partners. Their silks include an image of a donkey. Sherman has his first Derby starter because Coburn and Martin contacted him about training their horse. Hes old school and hes a regular guy, Coburn said. He doesnt have a huge barn and hes able to spend quality time with every horse he has in his barn. Sherman is based at Los Alamitos Racecourse in Orange County, Calif., 30 miles and a world away from Santa Anita, the mecca of racing in Southern California. Once a former jockey and racing official, Sherman took out his trainers license in 1980. His son, Alan, assists him with California Chrome, easily the best horse thats ever been in their barn. Come Saturday evening, Sherman, Coburn, Perry and jockey Victor Espinoza hope to be tasting victory. I know theres always a question until theyve done it, but I really think this horse will go a mile and a quarter, no problem, Sherman said. Hes doing everything right.

So here it is, my annual tirade regarding children, water, swimming lessons and life vests. Young children and/or anyone who cannot swim or tread water, should wear life jackets, when they are on a boat and any time they are around any body of water; period. Wearing a life jacket is important, but wearing one that is properly fitted is the key to safety. If the jacket is too small, or too large, it will not provide the correct protection intended. Always keep an eye on your kids around water, and I dont mean just a swimming pool, lake or ocean; this also includes the bathtub. Never assume anything. How many times have you heard or read, I only turned my back for a second? Unfortunately, a second is all it takes. Always designate someone to watch the kids around water, and dont assume because adults are around the pool, or on the boat, that they are watching your children. Take the positive approach and be prepared. LOCK, LOOK, LEARN. Pools or spas should be surrounded on all four sides by a fence at least 4-feet high, with self-closing and selflatching gates. Talk to your children about not playing around the pool without adult supervision and always designate a water watcher. Arrange for swimming lessons, and when necessary, make sure life jackets are fitted properly. I want to take this opportunity to tell you about Caylas Coats and an upcoming fundraiser benefiting the organization. In 2010, Cayla Barnes was a beautiful 20-month-old little girl who sadly drowned on a hot July afternoon in Citrus County. Since then, her parents, Sean and Jessica Barnes, have turned a devastating loss into a wonderful nonprofit organization known as Caylas Coats, with help from the community. Katie LucasNATURE COAST EMS Warmer weather is here, which is usually a good thing. However, warmer weather can also be not so good. In the news the other day, a college football player died while trying to swim against a riptide during spring break. Although Citrus County may not have a beach like Clearwater, Pensacola or Daytona, any body of water can pose of threat if safety measures arent taken. See SAFETY/ Page C3

In Print Online All The Time www.chronicleonline.com Learning to deal with fatigue and cancer Cancer is a scary word. When people think about cancer, and its treatment, which can include chemotherapy, lots of people get very nervous. They think chemotherapy can cause pain, but that is absolutely not true. One of the other common concerns is nausea and vomiting, but with modern medicine, that is becoming less and less common. What is the main problem after cancer treatment? The answer is fatigue. Cancer-related fatigue is a persistent feeling of physical, emotional or mental tiredness or exhaustion related to cancer and/or its treatment. Cancer-related fatigue is different from feeling tired when you have a long day. For most people, after a hard day of work, you take a rest and you feel better. So the common tendency for patients with cancer is to take a rest when they feel tired or fatigued. This is not correct. Cancer patients get tired after less activity than people who do not have cancer. Also, cancer-related fatigue is not completely relieved by sleep and rest and may last for a long time. Therefore, I advise my cancer patients to remain active in spite of fatigue. Cancer fatigue can be due to many different causes. Fatigue can be due to treatment of cancer. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery can all cause fatigue. Patients treated with chemotherapy usually feel the most fatigue in the days right after each treatment. Then the fatigue decreases until the next treatment. Other causes of fatigue in cancer patients include anemia, and that can be from treatment. Some patients benefit from erythropoietin injections to correct anemia. Some patients may need blood transfusions too. The bodys energy comes from food. Fatigue may occur if the body does not take in enough food to give the body the energy it needs. Nutrition may get affected by poor appetite, which makes patients to eat less or decreased absorption in some cases. Anxiety and depression are the most common psychological causes of fatigue in cancer patients. The emotional stress of cancer can cause physical problems, including fatigue. Its common for cancer patients to have changes in moods and attitudes. Patients may feel anxiety and fear before and after a cancer diagnosis. These feelings may cause fatigue. The effect of the disease on the patients physical, mental, social, and financial well-being can increase emotional distress. About 15 percent to 25 percent of patients who have cancer get depressed, which may increase fatigue caused by physical factors. Insufficient sleep worsens fatigue. Pain medications or other medicines can contribute to fatigue too. In short, fatigue in cancer is usually multifactorial. Trying to address the causes that can be corrected can ameliorate it. The patient should continue to be as active as possible rather than taking a rest. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Detection key to surving ovarian cancer Today, I will finish our series of articles regarding cancers of the female genital tract with a discussion of cancer of the ovary. Ovarian cancer is one of the more aggressive tumors seen by oncologisst and surgeons, with estimates of 21,980 cases in 2014, and 14,270 deaths. Due to the aggressive nature of this disease, only about 40 percent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will survive for five or more years. It is unfortunately a difficult cancer to detect in its early stages, and is often diagnosed in an advanced stage. Many of the cases are seen in children and young women, however about 40 percent of cases are seen in women beyond the age of menopause. Several risk factors have been identified and are associated with an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. The most prevalent risk factor identified is a positive family history of ovarian cancer. The risk is also slightly increased in women who do not have children and those who are older when they first conceive. This is felt to be related to the uninterrupted monthly cycles of ovulation which continue until either menopause or pregnancy. A break in this cycle appears to decrease the risk of ovarian cancer. This is also probably the reason the use of birth control pills appears to decrease the risk of ovarian cancer by interfering with this process of ovulation. The most common symptoms of ovarian cancer are abdominal pain and swelling, a fullness or pressure in the pelvic area and indigestion symptoms. Occasionally, pelvic pain is a very early sign of ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, it is often not diagnosed until the tumor has spread to many locations of the abdomen. Secondary to the location of the ovaries, tumors which rupture have easy access to the entire abdominal cavity and can easily spread and implant in other areas and begin to grow. The evaluation of ovarian cancer involves a battery of blood test and x-rays such as CT scans and chest x-rays among others. Surgery is the mainstay of both diagnosis and treatment of this disease. An initial surgical exploration and removal of all tumor possible allows us to properly stage the extent of the disease and make further treatment recommendations based upon these surgical findings. The general management of ovarian cancer consists of the surgical removal of the tumor with a total hysterectomy and of biopsies of multiple areas within the abdomen to assist in the staging of the extent of the disease. In most patients, except those with very early ovarian tumors, surgery is followed by additional therapy that may consist of hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of the above. If the tumor is very advanced at the time of presentation, the surgery may be delayed and chemotherapy started to decrease the size and extent of the tumor. If this is successful, surgery can be performed later to remove any residual disease during a hysterectomy. Unfortunately, ovarian cancer continues to be diagnosed in advanced stages fairly frequently. Over the past 10 years, a great deal of progress has been made in early screening of patients who have a positive family history. It will be with these screening tools that we begin to make greater advances in the early detection and treatment of this disease. Discussion must also take place regarding the prophylactic removal of the ovaries with a total hysterectomy in women with a high risk of ovarian cancer once they have conceived all of the children they plan to conceive. If the risk is high and the ovaries are removed, the source of future problems is also removed. Progress can and will be made in improving the cure rate of ovarian cancer.Dr. Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist.

Q:I just found out I had a loose bridge that was three teeth long. The dentist cut the bridge in front of the back tooth and found that the other tooth was too far-gone to be saved. It has been removed. Now I have two teeth missing and I am confused as to what is the best way to replace them. Can you help? A: This is a great question. I deal with this situation all the time in the office. You can relax, as it is pretty easy to make a good decision once you know what your options are. To follow is a list of options. I will explain each of them in terms to help you make a good decision on how to replace the missing teeth. Your options are as follows: 1. Leave the teeth missing. 2. Replace them with another bridge this time a four-tooth bridge 3. Have two implants placed so that crowns can be put on them 4. Use a removable partial denture. We are going to eliminate the first option since I already know you want to replace the teeth. The second option is a very viable option since four-tooth bridges can last a very long time, as long as the supporting teeth are sound and judged a good anchor by your dentist. It avoids the surgery of option three and take less time. The downside is there are times that you will be shaving down a perfectly good tooth just to support the bridge. If this is the case and you are opposed to this, option three is a great alternative. The third option is a great way of replacing teeth; however, it does involve at least two surgeries, unless you are a candidate for placement of the implant and crown (or healing screw) at the same appointment. It has the benefit of not involving the adjacent teeth, but it usually ends up being more costly. The last choice is another good choice but it involves a removable appliance, whereas the above two options are permanent solutions. A partial is usually less favorable if you are replacing teeth on one side of the dental arch, rather than both sides. It is also more apt to get food stuck under it and be more uncomfortable. If only a few teeth are being replaced it can be cost competitive with the other options. However, the more teeth that need replacing, the more attractive this option is from a cost standpoint. I hope this is clear enough to help you make a good decision. When I talk with patients, we usually have a good dialogue that allows questions. Once this is done, it is usually clear which direction is best for the patient. There are times when the patient needs a little time to ponder it at home. When this is the case a second consultation usually helps to arrive at a good decision. Best of luck.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Years ago, I used to hear people talk about medicine as being part art and part science. I still think that that is true to some degree, but now I think we almost have to add a third component air traffic controller for medicine. Let me take a few paragraphs to explain why I feel this way. Medicine, like air traffic, years ago was less busy and congested. Doctors now have to have a bit of a talent of juggling and prioritizing other factors besides patient care. Let me give you an example electronic medical records, computerization of the patients history, and the recently enacted Affordable Care Act that is not crystal clear in its rules. Doctors are facing increasing challenges to provide good medical care. We have always been driven by desire to improve health care delivery, and safety, but more and more demands are being heaped upon us by patients being older, sicker, hospital bureaucracies, the entanglement and confusion of government and its paperwork. The patients expectations are much higher. We read about it in the paper, hear about it in the news increased longevity and striving for perfection and achieving perfect outcomes in all situations, which is impossible. Lets take the issue of safety. If safety was the only guideline, I would operate or see one patient a day, a week or a month, depending on the level of severity and I would have redundant systems, i.e., extra staff on hand that would ensure the patient was cared for around the clock. That might produce a perfect outcome and great patient satisfaction, but for the other patients, that could not be seen in that time period it would not be very wise or practical situation. So, just as the air traffic controller has to juggle shifts and balance airplanes coming into one site, the physician has to see multiple patients and address all of their needs and make sure he or she does it safely and effectively. More demands by more patients who are older and sicker on a decreasing doctor population could be a recipe for disaster, and at the very least, decreased patient care quality and patient satisfaction. It is interesting to note that the medical profession as a whole, including doctors, doctors associations and hospitals, have looked to other industries to provide safe, economical, effective and economically sound medicine. The industries that have been looked at and admired for their records of safety and efficiency include auto racing pit crews, which can bring a car in that is hurtling along at 100 mph plus, fill it with gas, clean the windshield, change the tires and have it back out on the road up to 100 mph within seconds. Also, the airline industry, particularly pilots with their cockpit checklist that reminds them of what is important and what needs to be looked at, done before a safe takeoff occurs. Patient safety and outcomes are very important to doctors and in this age of increased pressure from all sides, we need to keep focused and do the best that we can.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT C8TUESDAY, APRIL29, 2014 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.This week, we are looking at strong jump shifts. The opener bids one of a suit and responder makes a single jump in a new suit. Responder shows 13-16 high-card points and either a one-suiter with an excellent suit (in principle, with a play for at most one loser opposite a low singleton), or a two-suiter with at least nine cards divided 5-plus 4-plus in the responders suit and the openers suit. In the old days, a strong jump shift promised some 17-19 high-card points. This was not a good idea. First, a hand that strong almost never came up; and second, with that amount of power, responder did best to make a quiet response to learn as much as possible about the distribution and strength of his partners hand before naming the final contract. In todays deal, responders second jump showed that his suit was completely solid. North, after rebidding two no-trump to find out which hand-type his partner had, used Blackwood before signing off in six hearts. After West leads the club queen, how should South proceed? Declarer is faced with three losers in his hand: one diamond and two clubs. He does not have time to play a diamond to establish a discard, because East would win with his ace and cash the club king. South must win with dummys club ace, play a heart to his ace, and take the three spade tricks, discarding his diamond loser. Then declarer gives up a club. In a moment, he ruffs his final club with dummys heart eight and claims (MSNBC) 42 41 42 P o liti cs N a ti on (N)H ar db a ll With Ch r i s Matthews (N) All I n With Ch r i s H ayes (N) Th e R ac h e l M a dd ow Show (N) Th e L as t W or d With Lawrence ODonnell All I n With Ch r i s H ayes (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Life Below Zero Kentucky Justice PGAlaska State Troopers Alaska State Troopers Life Below Zero Alaska State Troopers (NICK) 28 36 28 35 25Sponge.Sponge.Sponge.Sam & Full HseFull HseFull HseFull HseFull HseFull HseFriendsFriends (OWN) 103 62 103 Dr. Phil Dr. Phil NeighborNeighborNeighborNeighborNeighborNeighborNeighborNeighbor (OXY) 44 123 The Bad Girls ClubThe Bad Girls ClubThe Bad Girls ClubThe Bad Girls ClubMariaCelebrityThe Bad Girls Club (SHOW) 340 241 340 4 The Longest Yard (2005, Comedy) Adam Sandler.

Cliff wants to marry me, but Ive turned him down. The problem is, he wants us to get married and each live in our own houses. We are both 67 years old. Right now, Cliff spends weekends at my place. When I suggest going to his house on the occasional weekend, he says no, claiming he hasnt had time to clean or there are no groceries or my bed is more comfortable and my TV is bigger, etc., etc. When I suggested we purchase a house together, Cliff said he will never leave his house. Ever. He thinks I should put my stuff in storage and move in with only my clothes. I feel so defeated. Cliff says he loves me, but admits he likes to live by himself. We tried counseling, but he doesnt like what they say to him. I broke up with him and have even gone out on a few dates, but it only makes me miss him more. Any advice? Ohio Dear Ohio: Cliff sounds set in his ways and nervous about changes to his environment. He thinks if he keeps his house exactly as it is, his life will stay exactly the same, and he finds great comfort in that. You arent going to win this fight without negative repercussions, so decide whether marriage is your goal. There is no reason the two of you cannot continue as you are and take marriage off the table altogether. But if you want to marry and actually live together, Cliff is not your guy. Dear Annie: How can I get my wife to travel? We have been married for 55 years and have not taken any long vacations together. Years ago, I traveled for work and loved it. My wife has never held an outside job. She stayed home to raise our four children and now takes care of our great-grandson. My wife inherited some money from a relative, but she hoards it for herself. We can afford to travel, but she wont. Please help me out. I want to see places before I die. Sam in Atlanta Dear Sam: You will have to see them without your wife. There may be myriad reasons why she doesnt wish to travel. She could be afraid of flying or of unfamiliar places; she could find travel uninteresting or exhausting; she may not want to leave her greatgrandson; she may think she is too old. You could ask whether she would take a short trip to a nearby place say a weekend in Savannah or a minivacation with your great-grandson and then perhaps convince her to travel farther afield. If she absolutely refuses, look into going on your own through group tours or traveling with friends. But dont expect her to use her inheritance money for your pursuits. Youll have to find another way to pay for this. Dear Annie: Heres my response to Not a Lawyer, whose family told him that lawyers dont give out free advice: A doctor and a lawyer were walking out of church one morning after services. The doctor couldnt stop complaining that wherever he went people approached him asking medical questions and wanting free advice. The lawyer explained that he, too, was once the target of people asking him for free advice, but he found a way to end it. How did you manage it? asked the doctor. Oh, that was easy, the lawyer replied. I started sending out bills, and soon enough the problem was solved. The following week, the doctor opened a letter from the lawyer that contained a bill for his services. My wife and I enjoy reading your column every day.
