The designation is based on a combination of factors including school grades, meeting classsize requirements and annual audits. Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel congratulated district employees by email Friday, which coincided with the last day of school. This only happens when there are great teachers, hard-working students, and supportive staff and families, Himmel wrote. Our entire community shares this award. District officials also learned Friday the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, scores for third-graders and eighth-graders improved so much that Citrus was one of three counties singled out for improvement by the Department of Education. Citrus third-graders improved their reading scores by 1 percentage point. Citrus eighthgraders improved their writing scores by 4 percentage points. Writing scores for middle and high school exceeded the state average, district officials said. Mike Wright Staff writer NEWS BRIEF Citrus celebrates County efforts helped cut flood insurance rates PATFAHERTY Staff writerFrom the Panhandle to the Keys, including Citrus County, Florida is highly susceptible to flooding. About 41 percent of the state is in a flood zone. From 1993 to 2012, Florida experienced 1,014 reported flooding events that rang up more than $3.7 billion in flood insurance claims plus $975 million in crop damages. And if those numbers did not make his point about the importance of flood mitigation programs, Frank Koutnik cited the recent flooding in Pensacola, which caused more than $100 million in damages with cleanup continuing. He said the rain that caused that flooding 24 inches in 24 hours set a new state record. It was previously held by Yankeetown, with 22 inches in 24 hours. Koutnik, a former Florida Division of Emergency Management official, is now a consultant with the Disaster Strategies and Ideas Group. He has been traveling the state informing residents and local officials about flood insurance and flood mitigation programs. He was in Citrus County Friday as part of the ongoing public information initiative on flood protection and floodplain management. Carl Jones, Citrus Countys floodplain manager, was able to add some local flood details. He pointed out that during the no-name storm of 1993, Crystal River City Hall had 3 feet of water. Its a serious issue in this county, he said. Koutnik warned the audience that flood insurance is going up. However, Advisory council wants county to keep centerCHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe Beverly Hills Advisory Council last week agreed to offer county government $20,000 to spend on the swimming pool at the Central Ridge Community Center. But the offer is good only if the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) agrees to operate the center within the public parks system and no longer seeks to sell memberships to use the facility and no longer considers selling it. The county must keep ownership of the center and make it a community park, Rosella Hale, council president, told theChroniclethis week. No more membership stuff we cant do it if it stays membership, Hale said. We can only work on something thats totally county (owned). We dont have to worry about it ever getting sold or for the benefit of a certain group. Hale will speak about the offer at Tuesdays BOCC meeting when the board will consider whether to continue to operate B.H. group offers county $20K to keep pool WHAT: Citrus County Board of County Commissioners meeting.

This county has grown us from little caterpillars to butterflies; our cocoons are ready to shed. Our class of 2014 will relish every opportunity that has been thrown our way, and we will not be doubted, because as we have proven with the heart displayed in our victories this year, our dreams are not bigger than life, they are our future.Haley Martone As the sun began to set to the west of Citrus High School, so did it, too, upon the students who called it home for the past four more or less years of their lives. Columns of blackand gold-clad seniors made their way to the football field Friday evening, as milder temperatures and a cool breeze heralded an end and a new beginning. Parents, family members and friends gathered to celebrate the students and the fruits of their labor. Thunderous applause roared, hoots and hollers rang out and tears flowed as the Citrus High School Class of 2014 stepped out of their old lives and into their new ones.Logan Mosby
because of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014, the increases will not be as radical as originally expected. Your rates are going to go up, he said. Even with the passage of this new law, someday, somebody is going to pay the actual rates. The new law lowers the recent rate increases on some policies, prevents some future rate increases and implements a surcharge on all flood insurance policy holders. With limited exceptions, flood insurance premiums cannot increase more than 18 percent annually. The new law also sets first year premiums for newly mapped flood hazard properties. Koutnik emphasized that regular home insurance does not cover flood damage and urged people to be familiar with their insurance policies. Florida has 38 percent of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policies in place, but remains a donor state, paying in more money than it receives in claims. The county was recently remapped for flood hazard zones. Jones said the maps take effect Sept. 26. Residents can go to the county building department to determine the status of their property. Koutnik also discussed the Community Rating System, a component of the NFIP that provides discounts on flood insurance premiums for communities undertaking flood protection activities. Citrus County currently has a rating of 6, which means residents of unincorporated areas of the county get a 20 percent discount on flood insurance premiums. It is working toward a 5, which would increase the discount to 25 percent Crystal River and Inverness are not in the program. Citing damage from past storms, Koutnik urged residents and officials to take hurricanes seriously, especially if an evacuation is ordered. We want to mitigate three things, he said, disruption of the economy, displacement of people and destruction of infrastructure. We want you to be able to go home to a home, he said.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

The advisory council administers the Beverly Hills municipal services benefit unit (MSBU), an annual assessment set up by the BOCC in 2001 to provide roadway mowing beyond what the county already provides in the community and fund beautification, street lighting or other essential services. The $20,000 for the pool would be drawn from the MSBU. Its $9 on your taxes every year and with that $9 we have put in 111 street lights that we maintain. We do plantings on the median strips, Hale said. We do extra mowings of the medians. The council also maintains the entrance at Forest Ridge Boulevard. Were in the process of having new Welcome to Beverly Hills signs made, Hale said. County government accepted the deed to the former Beverly Hills Recreation Center in September 2011 because of the insolvency of the Beverly Hills Recreation Association. Documents that created the Beverly Hills development stipulated that the county would be obligated to assume ownership of the recreation association property if the association became insolvent. The associations board deeded the property to the county, which has added it to the Parks and Recreation Division. Since accepting the facility, the county has tried to get it to pay its own way by selling memberships, but that plan has fallen short. Even before the county took over the facility, Hale said the advisory council spent $6,000 to repair the lake fountain. That was as far as we could go, Hale said. Anything we do has to be for what they call the good of the ground. Its got to benefit the ground; its got to benefit everybodys property values. Up to $5,000 of the $20,000 would be spent for lighting around the swimming pool to discourage vandalism, Hale said. The pool through the years has been the target of vandals, the most recent indent being on April 30, when repairs cost about $3,500. The remaining $15,000 would be allocated to maintenance. Hale said the advisory council would then give $15,000 a year for maintenance, which is a hefty commitment from the MSBU that draws about $60,000 because of the foreclosures in Beverly Hills. That is a big chunk, Hale said. We wanted to show the county that making this a community park would be the best thing for the property values of this community. At its May 13 meeting, the BOCC reviewed its Capital Improvement Program, which included two projects at the Central Ridge Community Center: $50,000 for Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades and $116,090 for pool renovations. Both expenses would be funded from ad valorem taxes. Id like to see the pool and the vacant land turned into a county park and bifurcating the building out of that and have the people out there run the building, Commissioner Dennis Damato said at the CIP presentation, in anticipation of the May 27 presentation.

County offers many boat ramps Foreign trade missions absent from Scotts 2014 calendar The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE The states chief business recruiter peddles the presence of the governor as opening doors for Florida businesses during past international trade missions. However, as Gov. Rick Scotts re-election effort moves deeper into campaign mode, the muchtraveled governor isnt penciled in to join any foreign trade missions this year. A Scott spokesman said decisions about upcoming trips will be made at an appropriate time. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the economic-development agency Enterprise Florida said that of the investment and trade development missions currently on the agencys schedule for the rest of this year, only one would fit the mold of the 10 trips Scott has led since taking office in 2011. That would be a return in July to the Farnborough International Airshow in southeast England. As of now, Scott, who led a delegation of nearly 90 people to the air show two years ago, isnt on the passenger manifest, Enterprise Florida spokesman Sean Helton said in an email. Florida Commerce Secretary Gray Swoope, who is also the president and chief executive officer of Enterprise Florida, highlighted the impact of Scott on trade missions during the agencys board of directors meeting Thursday at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Youve seen our boss, the chairman of this board, go in there, open the door from the leadership of the countries that were in, to the business leadership, and introduce Florida products to that market, and its been successful, Swoope said. Enterprise Florida claims the Scott-led trips to Panama, Canada, Brazil, Israel, Spain, the United Kingdom, Colombia, Chile, France and Japan have resulted in sales topping $474 million for the companies that have participated in the missions. Such numbers, however, remain suspect to some. Dan Krassner, executive director of the nonpartisan group Integrity Florida, continues to push for better public accounting from Enterprise Florida, which has its expenses covered by private and public dollars. The public might be suspicious that deals are being prearranged for photo ops rather than put together by state officials, Krassner said. If there was more transparency about how the publics money is being spent to increase trade, then the costs and benefits could be better understood. In addition to Farnborough, Enterprise Florida plans to travel this year to the securityfocused Cansec 2014 in Ottawa, Canada; China for a trade mission; Singapore and Malaysia for trade development; and the Electronica 2014 show in Munich, Germany. Scott has taken more foreign trips than his predecessor Charlie Crist, then a Republican, did during four years in the governors office. Former Gov. Jeb Bush, who served eight years, went on 16 business-related missions to other countries. The last trip Scott participated in was to Japan in November. He was expected to be part of a trade delegation to the Dominican Republic, the states ninth-largest trading partner, in February. But he withdrew days before the event. Instead he attended the National Governors Associations winter meeting in Washington, D.C. Enterprise Florida claims the Scott-led trips ... have resulted in sales topping $474 million for the companies that have particiapted in the missions.
TallahasseeFla. Bar calls for diversity on benchSeeking more diversity in the judiciary, The Florida Bar Board of Governors on Friday approved a series of recommendations that focus heavily on judicial nominating commissions. A Bar special task force put together a 22-page report that includes calling for diverse appointments in filling 78 upcoming vacancies on nominating commissions. Those commissions play a key role because they propose judicial candidates to Gov. Rick Scott, who makes appointments. The report said 26 of the nominating-commission vacancies will be filled directly by Scott, while 52 will be filled from slates of lawyers proposed by the Bar. The report noted that Scott has rejected entire slates from the Bar on 18 occasions, unlike previous governors who had not rejected entire slates. The occasion to fill 78 vacancies on judicial nominating commissions creates a golden opportunity to reaffirm the importance of a fair, impartial and independent judiciary that reflects the rich diversity of Floridas population, the report said. MiamiFWC: 62 killed in 2013 boating accidents Sixty-two people were killed in boating accidents last year and there have been 11 deaths so far this year, according to a state boating accident report released Friday. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released its 2013 Boating Accident Statistical Report ahead of Memorial Day weekend, detailing boating accidents and their causes. Failing to have a proper lookout was a leading cause of boating accidents and in fatal accidents, drowning was the leading cause of death, according to the statistical report. Often, accidents can be prevented by more careful operation, Lt. Seth Wagner said in a statement. It is critical for operators to maintain a proper lookout and focus on what is going on around their boat at all times. Wildlife officials stressed the importance of wearing a life jacket. The commission is responsible for reviewing, analyzing and compiling boating accident data for the state. The leading type of accident continues to be boaters colliding with other boats or objects, Wagner said.

DelandMan accused of theft of grave markersA Florida man is accused of stealing grave markers from his employer and selling them as scrap metal. The Volusia County Sheriffs Office arrested 31year-old Daniel Monahan on Thursday. He faces multiple counts of dealing in stolen property. The owner of Volusia Monuments said among the stolen items are yellow brass markers with names and birth and death dates. He said they went missing over the past two months, but there was no sign of a break-in. Deputies inquired about his employees, and learned Monahan was the only one. Investigators then checked metal recycling businesses and learned that Monahan produced a fake letter from his employer giving him permission to sell the items. Monahan earned more than $1,500. Investigators said he told them he used it to support a prescription pill addiction. From staff and wire reports Around theSTATE STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE From wire reports Taxwatch urges Scott to cut turkeys JIMTURNER The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A dog park in Jacksonville, a fountain in Palm Beach and money to help people get to the planned 1,000-foot-tall SkyRise Miami were among $121million in budget projects that Florida TaxWatch says Gov. Rick Scott needs to strike with his line-item veto. In releasing its annual list of budget turkeys Friday, TaxWatch officials urged Scott to veto 107 projects from a 431-page, $77.1billion fiscal plan that lawmakers approved early this month. The TaxWatch list includes one project, construction of a performing arts center at Pasco-Hernando State College worth $10million, from House Speaker Will Weatherfords district. Another 10 projects, at a combined cost of nearly $6million, are recommended to be slashed from the counties fully or partially included in the Panhandle district of Senate President Don Gaetz. Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, offered a sharp rebuke to the list. Florida TaxWatch has once again shown, Gaetz said in a news release, that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriation, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince wellmeaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle. Scott has until June4 to act on the budget, which will take effect with the start of the new fiscal year July1. Kurt Wenner, TaxWatchs vice president for tax research, said the projects on the list arent being questioned on their merits, but rather for failing to go through the normal budget process. There were an awful lot of member projects in the budget this year, Wenner said. I think everybody knew there were going to be, there was more money. Wenner said the budget would never get done if there wasnt backroom dealing. But the group is opposed to new projects being introduced during those talks. The business-backed organization uses two main criteria to select turkeys: first, whether the project was inserted into the budget during the final negotiations between the House and the Senate; and second, whether the spending was requested by a state agency. Thats why Wenner said a $12million gantry crane at Port Tampa Bay is on the list, but none of the $171.9million allocated for projects related to the Everglades and the Indian River Lagoon were targeted. Scott has been touring the state pitching his desire to have the state spend $300million on seaport improvements if given a second term. Wenner said the crane would help the state, but is on the list because it was added during budget talks between the House and Senate. We think it has great economic development benefits, Wenner said. If there is something we think is valuable, we will keep it on the list, but we will let the governor know we think there is something valuable there. Other projects pitched for vetoes include $2.5million for a Tarpon Springs Superfund site redevelopment; $5million for a Miami-Dade College gymnasium; $2 million for Cocoa Beach seawall improvements; $3million for the Mossy Head Industrial Park in Walton County; $123,000 for a Riverside Avondale Preservation dog park in Jacksonville; $150,000 for single-gender schools in Broward County; and $350,000 for the restoration of an Addison Mizner-designed fountain in Palm Beach.

Many of the fifth-graders started their formal education as kindergartners when the school was opened six years ago and are now graduating out of elementary school. Dedicated newsman dies NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS As a newsman, Jim Twitty, the former Tampa TribuneCitrus-Hernando bureau chief, lived and breathed getting the story. Hes the only guy I ever knew who slept with a police scanner on all night at home, which led to some great story leads, recalled George Wilkens, former Tampa Tribunereporter. I always knew if my phone rang at 2a.m. it was either bad news from family or it was Jim Twitty. Jim Twitty, of Inverness, died Thursday at age 78. Wilkens said his phone rang late one night, and it was Twitty. He never said Hello. He just said, You got film in your camera? Citrus High School. Fully involved. As I drove from my house on Moccasin Slough, I could see the orange glow from the fire. We ended up being the only paper there while it was ablaze. Twitty started the first Inverness/Citrus County bureau for The Tampa Tribune from a cementblock storage shed behind his house. It had no air conditioning and the only electricity came from his house via an extension cord across the yard. Eventually, the Tribune opened an office in Inverness and Twitty was officially named bureau chief. Thats when Wilkens came to work for him. He covered some big stories for the Tribuneover the years race riots in Gainesville, the slaying of a highway patrol trooper near Inglis, Wilkens said. Tim Hess, who was a Chroniclephotographer in the 1980s, remembered Twitty as one of the nicest, most mild-mannered newspaper guys he has ever known, and one of the most dedicated. When I started here, we had three daily newspapers and theChroniclewas two days a week, all competing with each other, Hess said. But even though we were all competitors, we would all sit together at breakfast at a greasy spoon in Inverness; all the journalists got along really good. We were all friends, and that made for healthy competition. In later years, Twitty became a columnist for the Tribunezoned editions and then when the Tribuneclosed its Citrus County bureau, Twitty transferred to the downtown Tampa newsroom where he worked as a copy editor until retiring in 1998. After that, he could usually be found helping out at his son Ricks computer repair shop in downtown Inverness. Jim always had his finger on the pulse of what was going on in Inverness, Hess said. He was a great family guy and a real mainstay of Inverness. Funeral arrangements are pending.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The couple rented the fort, located next to Florences famed Boboli Gardens, for $410,000 and a Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony, spokeswoman Elisa Di Lupo told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Belvedere Fort was built in 1590, believed using plans by Don Giovanni de Medici Located near the Arno River, it offers a panoramic view of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills.Kathleen Turner seeks satisfaction on London stageLONDON Heres a tip: Dont tell Kathleen Turner what to do. The 59-year-old actress, whose career stretches from 1980s movie hits Body Heat and Romancing the Stone to Tony-nominated stage roles, does not like being pigeonholed. Cast early on as a sex symbol, even in animated form she was the voice of sultry Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? shes long refused to be stuck with the limited parts Hollywood provides for women over 40. But she knows its a strategy that brings risks. I did The Graduate here in London when I was 46, and that was full nudity for 20 seconds, but it was a big hoopla, said Turner, who is back in Britain with Stephen Sachs play Bakersfield Mist. The producer said, Great, well take it to Broadway. And I said, No we wont. Sex in the States is just so screwed up, peoples heads are so weird I dont need the fuss. So I went off and did another play. And then I was sent a film script that described the character as but still attractive. And that pissed me off so badly I called up the producer of The Graduate and said, Were going to Broadway. So at 48, I was naked onstage in New York. Im very proud of that. Turner tells the story with a smoky laugh. She seems like a woman who enjoys a challenge and has the complex roles to prove it, despite battling rheumatoid arthritis since the 1990s. She was nominated for a Tony for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? on Broadway, and recently played Bertolt Brechts Mother Courage in Washington. Im attracted to characters that I might fail at, Turner said. She still takes TV and movie parts, most recently in the slapstick sequel Dumb and Dumber To. But she finds the process of movie-making, with its endless retakes and long delays, boring.

For the RECORD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A Republican Party of Florida official testified Friday that congressional maps he drew and turned over to a GOP consultant were identical to those submitted to the Legislature by a member of the public months later as lawmakers held hearings on how they should redraw the states political lines. Frank Terraferma was shown his maps alongside those submitted under someone elses name at a public hearing three months later and agreed that seven congressional districts were the same. But Terraferma, who runs state House campaigns for the state party, said he didnt know his maps were turned in at the public hearings until seeing them in the courtroom Friday. The testimony came in the fifth day of a trial to determine whether GOP leaders ignored a 2010 constitutional amendment requiring them to draw congressional districts that do not protect incumbents or members of a certain party. A coalition of groups including the League of Women Voters is suing the Legislature claiming GOP leaders used a shadow process to disguise their intention to draw maps to politically benefit Republicans. The new political boundaries were approved in 2012. Terraferma testified he worked with consultant Rich Heffley and Republican National Committee officials as he prepared maps. Heffley was paid $10,000 a month by the Republican Party of Florida to help with redistricting. But Terraferma said he wasnt drawing the maps for legislators to consider. Instead Terraferma, who was often sarcastic during his testimony, said he was drawing maps for a variety of reasons. When asked by lawyer David King for examples, he said, Its fun, to be honest with you. King questioned whether Terraferma and Heffley intended all along to have a third party turn in the maps so their names wouldnt be attached to them. Terraferma simply said he didnt turn in a map himself, but he acknowledged that he could have. GOP staffer drew congressional maps Chiefland CitizenThe Levy County Sheriffs Office is working a chain of information to crack down on methamphetamine manufacturing and busted the fourth lab in the past four weeks. The effort in Levy County started April 27, when a theft investigation led to the discovery of an active meth lab at a Chiefland residence. A man and woman were arrested in that operation. Three days later, deputies arrested a man at his Chiefland residence where he admitted having an active meth lab. On May 15, the sheriffs office participated in a raid on a Crystal River residence where a man serving probation from Levy County was found with an active meth lab and 505 grams of meth oil considered trafficking weight under state law and carrying a 15-year mandatory sentence upon conviction. Citrus deputies arrested Vince Baker and charged him with manufacturing meth, possessing meth, possessing a listed chemical used to manufacture meth and violation of probation. This past Monday, a citizens tip led to a residence on Northwest 85th Street in Bronson where three men were waiting on one last ingredient to cook a batch of meth. They were arrested and sheriffs deputies are still seeking a fourth man in connection with that case. Deputies also found a shotgun at the residence. Arrested were: Daniel Larkins, 29, Richard Sanders, 25, and Ronald Kingsley, 24. Larkins is charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth. His bond is $25,000. Sanders is charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and tampering with a witness. His bond is $175,000. Kingsley is charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His bond is $125,000. Working off information gleaned from the Monday arrests, Deputies Keagon Weatherford and Clint Anderson and his K-9 partner, Nero, stopped Michael Tipler, who was wanted on warrants in Gilchrist and Dixie counties, while he was driving a 2003 Pontiac van with an active meth lab in it. Also in the van when it was stopped in the 3600 block of U.S. Highway 27A were Edward Garcia and Harris Garcia. The three were arrested, and with information developed from the traffic stop, deputies found a meth lab disposal site in a neighborhood behind the Bronson Speedway in Bronson. The site contained components created during the manufacturing of meth. The process involves the mixing of ingredients including lithium and other solvents. All are capable of causing great bodily harm. Tipler, 26, who was wanted on a Gilchrist County warrant for violation of probation on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a Dixie County warrant for aggravated battery on an officer, possession of listed chemicals for meth production, fleeing and attempting to elude law enforcement and possession of drug paraphernalia, is now charged in Levy with production and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. His bond was $60,000. He has no bond on the two out-ofcounty warrants. Harris Garcia, 21, was charged with production and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. His bond is $60,000. Harris Garcia is also facing two counts of grand theft auto and dealing in stolen property. He had been identified as a suspect in the theft of at least two vehicles in the Bronson area. Edward Garcia, 22, was charged with production and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. His bond was $60,000. In past interviews, deputies and police officers have said meth is a highly addictive drug that can be manufactured using readily available chemicals anyone can buy off the shelf. Attempts to control the manufacture of the drug by limiting purchases of over-the-counter sinus medication have not stopped production of the drug by amateur chemists. And with the reformulation to a one-cook method that can be made without the use of a kitchen in something as simple as an empty plastic soda bottle, some have taken to making the crystal meth in moving vehicles. Thats because the production of meth not only produces noxious fumes, but volatile chemical mixes that can be disposed of by tossing the used plastic bottle out of the vehicle window. In each instance, members of the Chiefland Fire Rescue Haz-Mat team and the Levy County Sheriffs Office Drug Task Force have worked the cases. They have been trained and certified to clean up the meth manufacturing chemicals and render the former labs safe. Levy County Sheriffs Lt. Scott Tummond said the first Bronson lab investigation was helped tremendously by a tip provided by a concerned citizen. He said the sheriffs office encourages the public to call 352-486-5111 or Crime Stoppers at 877-3498477 to report suspicious activity.

State releases third-grade reading, math FCAT scores Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A little more than half of third-grade students scored at passing levels on Floridas standardized exam in math and reading in 2014, according to results released Friday. Fifty-seven percent of third-graders scored at a level 3 or higher on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in 2014, the same as the previous year. Fifty-eight percent reached the passing score in math, also unchanged from 2013. Those scores have been largely static over the last four years: Third-grade students had the same reading performance in 2011; in math, 56 percent reached a passing level in 2011, two points lower than in 2014. Florida third-grade students must score a level 2 or higher in reading on the FCAT in order to advance to the next grade. Nineteen percent scored a level 1 in 2014, though it was still unknown how many of those students would be held back. This year marks the last administration of the FCAT. Students will take a new exam aligned with the Common Core standards, recently renamed the Florida Standards, next year. The new benchmarks were created by a coalition of state officials and education leaders and have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. The standards have undergone some tweaks in Florida after hearings were held around the state, fielding more than 19,000 comments from teachers, parents and others. The standards establish what a child should know to be prepared for college and the workforce. The FCAT results released Friday showed continuing disparities in performance by race and English language proficiency. Seventy percent of white students reached a passing level 3 or higher on the reading exam, compared to 52 percent of Hispanic students and 39 percent of black students.
Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa The Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday that a 92year-old Belle Plaine woman cannot lay claim to her husbands assets after his September 2012 death because they had signed a postnuptial agreement in Florida two decades earlier waiving rights to each others property. The court ruled that Velma Hussemann must abide by the 1991 agreement even though Iowa does not recognize such property agreements signed by couples after theyre married. Since their agreement was completed in Florida, the court said, that states laws apply. The case presented Iowas high court with its first opportunity to decide whether Iowa should enforce postnuptial agreements signed in states that allow them. The unanimous ruling written by Justice Edward Mansfield pointed out that the Iowa Supreme Court over a century ago found that a contract between a husband and wife limiting her interest in his estate is of no validity whatever. Herbert and Velma Hussemann were married in February 1991 in Florida. Both had previous marriages and children from their prior relationships. They entered into a postnuptial agreement in Citrus County, Florida, shortly after they were married. Under the agreement, each was to retain his or her own property. And any property they acquired after being married would belong to the person whose name was on the title. Herbert had been represented by a lawyer in negotiating the agreement, but Velma had not, according to the agreement. Court documents indicated that his assets at the time of the agreement primarily included bonds, certificates of deposit and a mutual fund. Her assets included income from a home loan and life insurance. On the day the agreement was signed, Herbert also created a trust in which he placed his assets. It made no provision for Velma and left all assets to his sons, Herbie and Robert. The couple moved from Florida to Belle Plaine in 2005 and lived there until Herbert died Sept. 17, 2012, at age 91. Velma and her daughter, Marcella Ritter, filed a petition to claim her spousal share of Herberts trust. They argued the postnuptial agreement cannot be enforced in Iowa because that would violate the states established public policy against them. Herberts sons challenged the petition and asked the Iowa courts to uphold the agreement. A district court judge upheld the agreement, and Velma Hussemann appealed. The Iowa Supreme Court concluded the couple entered into the agreement that was legal under Florida law when all their ties were to that state. In our mobile society, we doubt that parties who enter into a valid contract in their home state and live under that contract for 14 years would expect that contract to be nullified simply because they move to another state, the court wrote. About 30 states allow postnuptial agreements. Margaret Beagan, 98INVERNESSMargaret Beagan, 98, of Inverness, Florida, passed away May22, 2014, at Diamond Ridge Health and Rehab, Lecanto.

Obituaries Iowa court upholds Florida postnuptial agreement Flag flies for D-Day Associated PressHOUSTON The clouds were low. The sea was rough. A cacophony of shouting men and the constant boom of exploding shells filled the air. Waves of American, British and Canadian soldiers landed on Normandys beaches. The hospital ship filled rapidly with the injured, and the USS Texas began taking on casualties. Through the battle smoke, they gazed from the landing craft and saw security: an enormous red, white and blue flag. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the June6, 1944, invasion, the flag that was aloft will go on public display Friday for the first time since World WarII in an exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, thanks to a crewman who gifted the flag. It was a firsthand witness to one of the most epic battles in history, said Andy Smith, manager of the vessel that is now a memorial in the Port of Houston called the Battleship Texas. The USS Texas also was present when the American flag was raised at Iwo Jima in 1945. The USS Texas 17-by-9 foot battle flag was raised on its mast June5, as 156,000 Allied soldiers prepared to cross the English Channel and face the Germans. The USS Texas, which already had fought in World WarI, was tasked with drawing enemy fire so the troops could land, Smith said. The flag told the other Allied powers this ship was a friend. Working in unison, the crew fired more than 255 rounds of 14-inch shells in just 34 minutes. The rounds came so fast and so furiously, the troops on the beach were relieved when they saw the USS Texas and its constant barrage, Ernest Hemingway described as a correspondent for Colliers magazine. Shes firing, and shes moving, and she gets as close to the shore as she can, Smith said. Part of her mission is to be a target. The days pass in a blur of fighting. By June 25, the USS Texas, flag unfurled, is at Cherbourg, battling to capture the port city. On the bridge is navigator Emil Saul, helmsman Chris Christiansen and dozens of crewmen. Suddenly, there was an explosion. We got struck there. Wiped out completely, said Saul, remembering the moment when the German shell destroyed the bridge. Christiansen was killed, and 11 were wounded, including Saul, who spent nearly three years in the hospital recovering. The crew, though, didnt forget. They awarded Saul the massive battle flag, a token for his sacrifice. For years, as Saul finished school, got married, raised two daughters and enjoyed a long career with the Coast Guard, the massive wool and linen flag with just 48 stars remained carefully folded in storage. The years passed, and the flag remained hidden. Now, due to a collaboration between Smith and the Houston Museum of Natural Science, which has the space and conditions to display the flag, it will be the centerpiece of a D-Day anniversary exhibit. We are losing these crew members at an alarming rate ... the veterans of World War II are dying off regularly, Smith added. We just dont know how much longer we have and we really wanted to get this flag viewable to those guys. Associated PressThis image provided by Battleship Texas Archives shows former crewman Emil Saul next to the USS Texas in 2005. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the June6, 1944, D-Day invasion, the flag that was aloft will go on public display Friday for the first time since World WarII in an exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science thanks to Saul, who gifted the flag.

Americans are house hunting again after a pause, sending sales up 6.4 percent last month and pushing homebuilder shares higher. The technology giant announced another round of job cuts, as many as 16,000, bringing total potential layoffs to 50,000. Margins are growing more healthy and the shoe store topped Wall Street expectations thanks to improving comparable-store sales. Despite the entry of retail giant Wal-Mart into its turf, the videogame-seller continues to surprise investors with big profits. The retailer took a hefty first-quarter loss, with restructuring costs and tough business conditions weighing on sales. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed at a record high Friday, helped by a stronger-than-expected report on the housing market and positive news out of the retail industry.

Interestrates 000IBQ0 Inching higher Associated PressStocks are bumbling along this year after a gangbuster 2013. The upward grind is underscored by the Standard & Poors 500 index, which closed above 1,900 for the first time on Friday. The index has eked out a gain of 2.8 percent this year compared with a 16 percent increase over the same period last year. Other major indexes havent fared any better. The Dow Jones industrial average and the Nasdaq composite are barely positive for 2014. The markets five-year bull run has slowed as investors become more evenly split between those that remain optimistic on the outlook for stocks and the economy, and those that think its time for a sell-off. Investors havent seen a correction, Wall Streetspeak for a drop of 10 percent of more, for an unusually long time. People have been waiting for this huge correction, but as soon as we have even a little bit of a pullback, people see the value in it, and theyre jumping in, said Karyn Cavanaugh, senior market strategist at Voya Investment Management. Cavanaugh believes that there will be a spring snapback, in the economy. Company earnings, already at record levels, will keep climbing and support stock prices. The S&P 500 rose 8.04 points, or 0.4 percent, to close at 1,900.53. The index first rose above 1,900 during trading on May 13, but fell back to close below that level. The Dow climbed 63.19 points, or 0.4 percent, to end at 1,606.27. The Nasdaq rose 31.47 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,185.81. Investors bid up homebuilder stocks following news that sales of new U.S. homes increased last month. Lennar rose $1.55, or 4 percent, to $40.54. D.R. Horton rose 92 cents, or 4.1 percent, to $23.57. The Commerce Department reported that sales of U.S. new homes rose 6.4 percent in April after slumping in the previous two months. On Friday, investors favored stocks that stand to fare better than others in a strengthening economy. Gains were led by technology, materials and consumer discretionary stocks. The S&P 500 has gained 180 percent since bottoming out in March, 2009 during the Great Recession. Stocks are now in the second-longest bull market since 1946, according to data from S&P Capital IQ. The index has also gone 2 years without a correction. Typically those declines occur once every 18 months. Associated PressTrader Peter Tuchman, right, works Friday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Stocks inched higher early Friday in quiet trading ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. S&P 500 closes above 1,900 for first time BusinessHIGHLIGHTS American new-home sales rose 6.4 percent in AprilWASHINGTON Sales of U.S. new homes recovered in April after slumping in the previous two months. But Americans are still buying new homes at a slower pace than they did a year ago. The Commerce Department said Friday that sales of new homes rose 6.4 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 433,000. That compares with an upwardly revised annual pace of 407,000 in March, when purchases fell 6.9 percent. Buying had dropped 4.4 percent in February, in part because of winter snowstorms.Reynolds expanding e-cigarette productionRICHMOND, Va. Reynolds American Inc. is expanding its Tobaccoville, North Carolina, manufacturing complex as it plans national distribution of its Vuse brand electronic cigarette this summer, the company said Friday. The owner of nations second-biggest tobacco company did not disclose the costs related to the ramp-up, which will include a multi-million dollar investment for high-speed manufacturing equipment, for competitive reasons but said the move would create more than 200 jobs over the next four years.Court tosses out federal rule to reduce energy useWASHINGTON A federal appeals court on Friday overturned an electricity regulation in which utilities pay energy users in the wholesale market to reduce consumption. The court ruled 2-1 that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission directive encroaches on states authority to regulate the retail power market, a position taken by utilities, which also oppose the regulation on grounds that it is too generous to major energy users. In an approach known as demand response, electricity users are paid to reduce their consumption in response to rising prices.US gains trade victory in auto dispute with ChinaGENEVA The United States has scored a victory before the World Trade Organization in a case that challenged Chinas imposition of penalty tariffs on the sale of $5 billion in U.S.made vehicles in China. A WTO panel ruled Friday that Chinas tariffs violated international trade rules. The ruling came during a week when the U.S. Justice Department charged five Chinese military officers with hacking into U.S. companies computer systems to steal trade secrets. The two developments pointed to intensifying trade tensions between the worlds two biggest economies. The dispute panel for the Geneva-based WTO sided with the United States in its ruling. It said China had acted inconsistently in imposing the anti-dumping requirements in violation of its WTO commitments.Workers in tech case likely to get average of $4KSAN FRANCISCO Nearly 60,000 hightech workers are likely to receive an average of $4,000 apiece in a settlement of a classaction lawsuit alleging Apple and Google conspired in an illegal cartel of Silicon Valley employers that secretly refused to recruit each others engineers. The estimate is based upon an analysis of court documents in the case, including the terms of a $324.5 million settlement outlined for the first time in a filing made late Thursday. The final amounts paid to each of the eligible workers will vary depending on their salaries during the four-year period covered by the lawsuit. A federal judge still must approve the settlement, which is already facing resistance from one of the workers representing the entire class. A hearing on the settlement is scheduled for June 19 in a San Jose, California, federal court.From wire reports
Teen parenthood challengingThe unwed teen pregnancy rated in Citrus County is of great concern since it is one of the highest of any county in the state. Many teens with a young child never complete their education and often spend their lives on a round of welfare unless there is welcome support by family. I know of two instances where there was loving support by the teens parents and the endings were happy. But without support, teens often find the responsibility and care of an infant overwhelming. Occasionally, it results in abusive treatment of the child, or due to lack of education, a child living in a home of welfare repeats the pattern. It, therefore, appears that there is a great need for better sex education for our young people, including the availability of contraceptives. Also needed are videos showing the results of motherhood as a teen, the responsibility and sacrifices needed for baby care and nurturing, not just suddenly feeling all grown up and having a monthly welfare check. To help prevent teen pregnancy, lets not just have ASPIRE teaching abstinence until marriage, but give teens the means to postpone pregnancy until they are emotionally mature.Meredith Bradley Citizens for Informed TeensStarting up drum and bugle corpA group of experienced drum and bugle corps folks, including myself, are in the process of returning a drum and bugle corps presence to Inverness and Citrus County. The organization will be permanently based here and will be for the benefit of the young people in our area who have an interest in the activity. We plan to make the organization open to anyone older than 12 years old; no prior music background is needed. We need your help in making this a reality. If you would like to volunteer, consider making a donation. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a child who would be interested in participating, please feel free to contact me.Benny Pisani Inverness The Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1 and ends Nov. 30; May 25 through 31 is designated National Hurricane Preparedness Week. But from a practical standpoint, theres nothing magical about the June and November dates, and there are plenty of hazards having nothing to do with hurricane-force winds that could disrupt our lives. Think about this: The big weather events in Citrus County in 2004/2005 which some erroneously label hurricanes were tropical storms, at best, in this area. The local effects of those storms offered just a hint of what could happen with an actual hurricane. Weve had localized flooding and wind-damaged trees in the absence of tropical cyclones, too. And dont forget that tornadoes have visited Citrus and other nearby counties. There are planned, controlled burns in the state forest routinely, and although weve not experienced runaway fire it could happen. The point is that it doesnt have to be a hurricane to present an emergency. It could be flooding, fire, sinkholes, industrial accidents, horrendous vehicle accidents or other disasters. The follow-up point is that we all need to stay informed about threats and have emergency plans and emergency supply kits. There are many ways to stay informed. Low-cost weather radios with varied alert functions are widely available. Pick one up, and keep extra batteries for it. Sign up for CodeRED with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, and choose the alerts on which you want to be notified include landline phones and cellphones. Remember that phones tied to cable service will not function if cable service is disrupted, and cellphones wont work if towers are down. For weather threats, we now have access online to radar images via phone, tablet or computer, as well as through our favorite TV weather broadcasts. Investigate the online sites that provide updates, including local emergency operations, national and regional weather sites and others. In preparing for potential emergencies, heres one thing most folks forget: arrange with an out-of-town friend or relative to be an emergency contact (choose someone far enough away not to be affected by the same emergency). Make sure all family members have the information with them always. Be sure to tell the contact your plans and whereabouts. Also, let others know to contact them if you get lost or something bad happens. If you or a family member has special medical needs, be sure to complete the Special Needs Registration Form available through the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Emergency Operations Center. You and your family should have an emergency plan that includes how to reach each other and a meeting point if your home is not available. Write it down. Practice it. Your emergency supplies kit should contain everything you and your family will need to be self-sufficient for at least three days. That includes food, water (figure a gallon per person per day), appropriate clothing, medications (dont forget pets!), personal assistance devices, hygiene and first-aid supplies, electronic device chargers, flashlights, radios and extra batteries, tools and repair supplies, kitchen utensils, a way to heat food if needed and a way to purify water. Also, consider what to take if you have to evacuate, and make a go-bag to grab quickly. Ensure that important papers are secure and available. Getting your personal house in order includes outside as well as inside. If severe weather is on the way, your yard should be free of anything that the wind could turn into a missile to break windows or injure people. (Remember, large trailertrucks have been flung through the air in storms; patio furniture wont stand a chance). Make sure the foliage is trimmed, too. Businesspeople need to make emergency plans, also. Especially in Citrus County, home to many small businesses, well-crafted disaster planning will contribute to business continuity.

The state also has, according to Anthony Sanders, ,000 campaign finance laws. He exaggerates, but understandably. As an attorney for Minnesotas chapter of the Institute for Justice, a libertarian public-interest law firm, Sanders represents several Minnesotans whose First Amendment rights of free speech and association are burdened by an obviously arbitrary, notably complex and certainly unconstitutional restriction. Linda Runbeck is a Republican state legislator who is allowed to spend in her campaign most spending finances dissemination of speech only $62,600. She is not challenging this speech limit, although it is so low it prevents her from advertising on this citys television stations, whose broadcasts reach many of the states voters. Rather, she is challenging the special sources provision that makes even more onerous the $1,000 limit on what any person can give her. Once she has received $12,500 in contributions of between $500 and $1,000, the $1,000 contribution limit is cut in half: All subsequent contributors can give a maximum of $500. When a contributor gives more, Runback must return the money or contact the giver and ask if it can be divided as two contributions coming from the giver and his or her spouse. Van Carlson is one of Runbecks constituents. He is only moderately affluent, but he wants to be able to give at least the permissible $1,000 to legislative candidates. If, however, 12 others have already given $1,000 to one of them, he can give only $500 to that candidate. As IJs Sanders says, No other state restricts what ordinary people can give to candidates because of what other ordinary people have already given. The special sources restriction was vulnerable to a constitutional challenge even before April, when the Supreme Court decided the McCutcheon case. In it the court invalidated the $48,600 aggregate limit on contributions to candidates for federal offices. The unreasonableness of this was obvious: If a person could give the $2,600 maximum to 18 candidates without a danger of corruption or the appearance thereof, why would giving $2,600 to a 19th candidate pose this danger? The court has repeatedly held that prevention of quid pro quo corruption (contributions purchasing specific favors) or the appearance of it is the only permissible reason for contribution limits. And the court has repeatedly stressed that leveling the playing field equalizing candidates quantities of permissible political speech is an impermissible reason for limiting contributions: The concept that government may restrict the speech of some elements of our society in order to enhance the relative voice of others is wholly foreign to the First Amendment. That, however, was among the Minnesota Legislatures rationales for the special sources limit. Conceivably, the Legislature was not entirely altruistic with rules that are more handicapping to challengers than to officials who enjoy the many advantages of incumbency. Eugene McCarthy, a Democrat who represented Minnesota in the U.S. Senate from 1959 to 1971, said that in Washington anything said three times is deemed a fact. It is constantly said that todays campaign regulations are post-Watergate reforms. Many were indeed written after the Nixon-era scandals. But the push for more government regulation of political speech began because Democrats were dismayed by what McCarthy accomplished in 1968. McCarthys challenge to President Lyndon Johnson for that years Democratic presidential nomination was potent only because five wealthy liberals who shared McCarthys opposition to the Vietnam War gave him substantial sums. Stewart Motts $210,000 would be $1.4 million in todays dollars. The five donors seed money enabled McCarthy to raise $11 million ($75 million today). Today, the most a wealthy quintet could give to help an insurgent against an incumbent would be $13,000 (five times the individual limit of $2,600). But of course. Class solidarity unites incumbent politicians of all stripes, and all the laws that ever have regulated campaigns, or ever will regulate them, have had or will have one thing in common: They have been, or will be, written by incumbent legislators. This is why such laws are presumptively disreputable and usually unconstitutional. Which Minnesotas special sources regulation is in saying that it is fine for 12 people to give Runback $1,000, but Minnesota would somehow be injured if Van Carlson then gave her $1,000. On Monday, a federal judge enjoined enforcement of this limit. The Supreme Courts rulings against federal restrictions of political speech are now scythes for mowing down states restrictions.

Associated PressSANTA ANA, Calif. Neighbors say Isidro Garcia is a doting father, loyal husband and good provider for his family. That doesnt mean hes not all the things prosecutors say he is: an abusive rapist who kidnapped a 15-yearold girl and eventually made her his wife. The narrative that unfolded around the couple this week in a Los Angeles suburb spans a decade, but the criminal case against Garcia centers on a three-month period when he is accused of grooming the teen through sexual abuse and taking her from her Santa Ana home. Authorities focused on the early allegations of abuse because they occurred in the county and are not subject to a statute of limitations, according to Whitney Bokosky, deputy district attorney for Orange County. She said the charges may be amended or expanded as the case moves forward. Nobody is saying this girl was tied up in some basement somewhere. This was more of a mental kind of prison she was living in, Bokosky said. Garcia, 41, is charged with rape, kidnapping and three counts of lewd acts on a child dating back to 2004. A lawyer for Garcia, who is being held on $1 million bail, said the woman lied about being abused because the couple is separating. Police say Garcia, who had been dating the girls mother, drugged and abducted the victim, telling her that her family wasnt looking for her and that if she contacted authorities, she would be deported. In 2007, he forced her to marry and fathered a daughter, now 3, with her, police said. Garcia was arrested Monday after the woman, now 25, went two blocks from her apartment to a police station in Los Angeles Countys Bell Gardens and accused him of domestic violence. Authorities then connected her to a 2004 missing-person report filed by her mother. Police have not identified the woman. The story has transfixed many who wonder how the woman could keep quiet for so long, and it prompted comparisons to other high-profile kidnappings, including one involving three women who were locked up in Cleveland and broke free after about a decade. While police said Garcia initially locked up the woman, she later got a job, had her own car and neighbors said they seemed like a loving couple. Steve Meister, a criminal defense attorney and former Los Angeles County prosecutor, said the lack of charges stemming from the years the woman lived with Garcia and neighbors reports that she appeared happy highlight potential challenges to her credibility. In any case, but especially a sexual assault case, you cant pick and choose what of the victims story you want to believe. You either believe them or you dont, Meister said. Thats how district attorneys should analyze it because that is how a jury is going to see it. Lawrence Rosenthal, a professor at Chapman Universitys Fowler School of Law, said he believes the victims age and the statute of limitations influenced how prosecutors approached the case. Some prosecutors might have pursued additional rape charges, he said, but not all, adding that kidnapping carries a potential life sentence. Other prosecutors would say it is a waste of time Ive got a slam-dunk on plenty of serious charges, Rosenthal said, adding that he tells his law students to think about criminal cases like movies. I tell them you want to pick the frame of the film you think is the easiest to charge, and it may be the prosecutors have approached this case in the same way. Since Garcias arrest, neighbors of the couple have rushed to his defense, describing him as dedicated family man. Law enforcement officials have cautioned against blaming the victim. The case bears some similarities to the story of Pennsylvania teen Tanya Kach, who ran away with a security guard and only broke away after spending years locked in a bedroom as his captive, said Lawrence H. Fisher, a lawyer who represented Kach in a civil suit and coauthored a book with her. The guard is now serving a fiveto 15-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to sex assault and other charges in 2007.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, MAY24, 2014 A9 000I56S 1 Regina Blvd., Beverly Hills (Across From Fire Station) 746-0330 Beverly Hills DENTAL CENTER Dentures, Partials & Bridges Fast Braces Children Welcome Veneers, Bonding, & Extractions One Visit Root Canals Gum Surgery Implants One Hour Whitening Open Fridays Raphael C.

Now 32, the Virginia resident has made more than 6,000 jumps and is competing for a spot on the U.S. Parachute Team. This week, she and about 75 others converged at Skydive City a well-known DZ or drop zone about an hour north of downtown Tampa for the United States Parachuting Associations canopy piloting national championship. Canopy piloting is all about fast canopies and drama and high-speed action, said James Hayhurst, director of competition for the USPA. Its an exciting event. Canopy piloting is a subset of the skydiving sport, and those that practice it are called swoopers. During competition, swoopers jump from a plane at 5,000 feet. They must maneuver the parachute sometimes with twists and turns and then skim the surface of a pond in between a series of buoys. Then the pilots must perform either a 75-degree turn, a precision landing inside a 2-by-2-meter area, or a distance glide. The swoopers reach speeds of up to 90 miles an hour as they descend. Its all designed to test the parachutists ability to control the chute also known as a canopy and how accurately they can land. The sport canopy parachutes are more rectangular and look different from a rounded top parachute. This is on the edge, said Hayhurst. This is sport. Of all the disciplines in our sport, these guys are closest to the edge. Its completely different than the recreational event that someone might do when they make a tandem jump. Thats a different universe, really. The skydivers look peaceful as they gracefully float in the sky after jumping from the plane. But as they approach the ground, the parachutes make a loud buzzing noise and its apparent that theyre sailing through the air at a fast clip. Its not necessarily scary to jump out of the plane anymore, laughed Edgeington. I get competition nerves when Im at something like this. So thats probably the most nervewracking thing, is getting ready to compete. Trying to perform and do your best. Hopefully not mess up. This weeks contest will crown the national champions and select eight people for the U.S. Parachute Team for the World Championship, which will be held at Skydive City in Zephyrhills in November. Hayhurst said canopy piloting is mostly performed by very fit people in their 20s and 30s. Because of the fast approach speeds, canopy piloting can be riskier than other types of recreational parachuting. Earlier in the week, a competitor received some bumps and bruises after a rough landing; Hayhurst said the swooper was checked out at the hospital and is OK. This is a young man and young womens game, said Hayhurst. Its physical.

Kidnap victim faces credibility test Associated PressIsidro Medrano Garcia, 42, talks with his defense attorney Charles Frisco as he appears before Judge Craig Robison on Thursday during his arraignment at the Orange County jail in Santa Ana, Calif. Prosecutors on Thursday filed five felony charges against Garcia, including rape and kidnapping to commit a sexual offense. He did not enter a plea, and his arraignment was continued until June. He is being held on $1 million bail. Commander: Navy must improve female retention rate Associated PressPEARL HARBOR, Hawaii The Navy retains female sailors at half the rate it holds on to men. One result is that it doesnt have enough senior enlisted women on some ships stationed overseas, leaders of the Navy say. The Navys top commander for personnel said the service has repeatedly learned problems develop if a ship has many junior enlisted females but no senior enlisted women on board to mentor them. Vice Adm. William Moran told reporters during a visit to Pearl Harbor on Thursday he thinks the fundamental reason is that women want to start families and need more time to do so. This often makes women choose between staying in uniform and starting a family, he said. What can we do different that doesnt make that choice so hard? Or gives them an opportunity to go and then come back? Moran said. Women account for 19 percent of all sailors in the Navy, but they make up just 10 to 11 percent of the senior enlisted ranks. Moran called retaining women at a rate that allows the Navy to sustain the workforce one of the Navys most significant challenges. The poor retention rate is the same across ranks, Moran said, from officer to junior enlisted. Moran said commanders are talking to sailors to learn what changes could be made to encourage women to stay. Were looking at everything we can possibly do to change that dynamic, he said. The Navy currently offers women six weeks of paid maternity leave. New mothers may also defer deployments for a year. Adoptive mothers are eligible for three weeks of paid maternity leave and may defer deployments for four months. The Navy has already experimented with reforms. A pilot program allows men and women to take sabbaticals, for example. Other senior leaders including Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and the chief of naval operations have made addressing the low retention rate for women a priority. Legislation before the U.S. Congress may also help. The Military Opportunities for Mothers Act would enable women giving birth an additional six weeks off unpaid, for a total of three months of maternity leave. The bill aligns military maternity leave with guidelines for other federal employees, U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, DIllinois, who introduced the legislation with Rep. Kristi Noem, a Republican from South Dakota, said in a news release on the legislation. The bill would allow commanders to recall women to duty if needed. The House passed the legislation Wednesday as an amendment to a defense spending bill.
NATION& WORLD Page A10SATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Election time Associated PressSupporters welcome Ukrainian presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko on Thursday during a rally in Priluki, Ukraine. The presidential election is scheduled for Sunday. Putin promises to respect Ukraines electionST. PETERSBURG, Russia President Vladimir Putin pledged Friday that Russia will respect the results of Ukraines presidential election, a strong indication the Kremlin wants to cool down the crisis. But new violence and rebel vows to block the balloting made prospects for peace appear distant. New clashes were reported between pro-Russia separatists and government forces in eastern Ukraine as Kiev continued an offensive to try to halt the uprising. Associated Press reporters saw two dead Ukrainian soldiers near the village of Karlivka, and another body near a rebel checkpoint, both in the Donetsk region. A rebel leader said 16 more people died Friday in fighting there 10 soldiers, four rebels and two civilians but there was no immediate way to verify his statement.Reward offered for missing South Korea ferry ownerSEOUL, South Korea South Korea is offering a $50,000 reward for information about a mysterious missing billionaire who authorities say owns a ferry that sank last month, leaving more than 300 people dead or missing. Yoo faces allegations of tax evasion, embezzlement and professional negligence. Prosecutors have said they suspect that the April 16 ferry sinking may have happened because Chonghaejin illicitly funneled profits to Yoos family, and so failed to spend enough money on safety and personnel. His son, Yoo Dae-gyun, faces embezzlement allegations.Syrian TV: 39 die in attack on campaign tentBEIRUT Syrian state TV said the toll from a mortar attack on an election campaign tent packed with supporters of President Bashar Assad is 39 people killed and 305 wounded. The TV showed pictures of Assad supporters in a tent in the southern city of Daraa dancing. It then showed people lying dead and wounded on the ground, including children. It was the first death toll provided by the government for the attack, which opposition activists earlier said killed 21. The attack was the first to target a campaign event, heightening fears in government strongholds that rebels will escalate attacks in an attempt to disrupt the balloting scheduled to take place on June 3. World BRIEFS From wire reports Poll: Little love for health care law Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama celebrated when sign-ups for his health care law topped 8 million, far exceeding expectations after a slipshod launch. Most Americans, however, remain unimpressed. A new Associated PressGfK poll finds that public opinion continues to run deeply negative on the Affordable Care Act, Obamas signature effort to cover the uninsured. Forty-three percent oppose the law, compared with just 28 percent in support. The pattern illustrates why the health care law remains a favored target for Republicans seeking a Senate majority in the midterm elections. The poll does have a bright spot for the administration: Those who signed up for coverage arent reeling from sticker shock. Most said they found premiums in line with what they expected, or even lower. But even that was diminished by another finding: More than one-third of those who said they or someone in their household tried to enroll, were ultimately unable to do so. For the White House, its an uncomfortable reminder of the technical problems that paralyzed the HealthCare.gov website for weeks after it went live last fall. Obamas health care law offers subsidized private coverage to middle-class people who have no health plan on the job, and it expands Medicaid to pick up low-income uninsured adults. But last falls launch of new health insurance markets was paralyzed with technical problems. The debacle contributed to the departure of health secretary Kathleen Sebelius. After Congress approved the law in 2010, a political backlash over its Medicare cuts, tax increases and new regulations helped Republicans win the House. This fall the GOP is following a similar strategy with the Senate at stake. Associated PressPresident Barack Obama speaks at the White House on April 17 in Washington. The Obama administration celebrated when sign-ups for the health care law crossed the 8-million mark after a stumbling start, but most Americans are unimpressed. Shift of illegal crossings accelerates Associated PressMcALLEN, Texas A shift by immigrant smugglers to target the toughto-defend U.S.-Mexico border in southernmost Texas has accelerated this year as the Border Patrol scrambles to shift its resources from states farther west, according to an internal agency report obtained by The Associated Press. From Oct. 1 through May 17, agents in the southernmost tip of Texas made more than 148,000 arrests, on pace to match last years total in less than eight months, according to the intelligence report. That compares with nearly 63,000 arrests in the Tucson, Arizona, sector, which it surpassed for the first time just last year. The Rio Grande Valley sector averaged nearly 1,100 arrests per day from May 11-17, according to the document. What these numbers look like on the ground is a near-constant flow of people across the Rio Grande. The arrests do not represent the full level of traffic, only those who are caught, but the reports hourly breakdowns showed the arrests never stopped. Heat maps illustrating concentrations of arrests glowed bright red along miles of the Rio Grande south of McAllen. When a delegation of state agriculture commissioners from around the country visited the McAllen Border Patrol station Wednesday, they were told about 1,400 arrests were made the night before. They saw more than 1,000 immigrants, many mothers with infants or solo teenagers, being held in spaces intended to accommodate only a fraction of that. In a statement Friday, Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Marsha Catron addressed the governments efforts to deal with unaccompanied children, who have contributed to the crowded conditions at Border Patrol stations and overwhelmed available shelter space. Last week, the government announced it would once again temporarily house as many as 1,000 of the children at a San Antonio Air Force base. DHS has designated someone to coordinate efforts, sent additional senior staff to the region and expanded awareness campaigns in the immigrants home countries.

Sonya Ann Gardner, 35, is jailed on a $1 million bond on two counts of attempted capital murder of a child, according to police records. Witnesses said her son, Jydesmon Gardner, was walking by the apartment when he heard screams.

The fire has burned approximately 4,800 acres, but firefighters took advantage of cooler, calmer weather Friday to get an upper hand on a blaze burning in a scenic Arizona canyon as Memorial Day travelers were forced to alter their travel plans because of the fire. Witnesses give account of how Thai coup unfolded Associated PressBANGKOK Thailands all-powerful army chief started the extraordinary meeting by asking participants to give a progress report on their homework. The participants were the countrys most important political rivals, plus four Cabinet ministers from the embattled government, election commissioners and senators. The homework: solving a crisis so complex it has split the Southeast Asian nation for nearly a decade, fueling repeated spasms of bloodshed and upheaval. They didnt know it then, but they only had about two hours to figure it all out. Just after 4:30 p.m. Thursday, the conference room would be sealed by soldiers, and the man who called the meeting, Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha, would become Thailands new ruler. Accounts of those pivotal moments at a military complex in Bangkok known as the Army Club, relayed by two lawmakers who were present and Thai media, indicate that Prayuth had no intention of engaging in the kind of protracted negotiation necessary to mediate a conflict that reignited last year when protesters took to the streets. The sequence of events raises questions about whether the meeting was a ruse to neutralize anyone who might oppose the coup. That it happened so swiftly suggests Prayuth was already planning to do what demonstrators pushed for all along: overthrow the government, if the two sides could not reach a compromise. Two days earlier, when Prayuth declared martial law, the 60-year-old officer insisted he was only trying to restore stability and force all sides to talk. On Wednesday, he summoned rival factions and Cabinet officials who had no choice but to show up. After that two-hour meeting, everyone was told to come back with proposals to end the crisis, said a lawmaker who attended who spoke on condition of anonymity. Gen. Prayuth Chan-ochastaged coup.

A Denver Broncos executive charged with crashing into two cars while driving drunk was sentenced Friday to seven months in jail after he pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and careless driving resulting in injury. Matt Russell, the teams director of player personnel, was charged after his vehicle ran into a police SUV and injured an officer in Colorados Summit County on July 6. Summit County Court Judge Edward Casias sentenced Russell to jail time. He also approved Russell for work release and participation in a court-ordered treatment plan as part of his sentence. Russell was also ordered to perform 120 hours of community service. Russell was arrested while celebrating his 40th birthday. He hit two vehicles, including the police SUV in Breckenridge, injuring an officer. He registered a 0.246 percent breath alcohol content, three times the legal threshold for a DUI violation in Colorado, according to the arrest affidavit.Irsay formally charged with misdemeanorsNOBLESVILLE, Ind. Prosecutors charged Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay with two misdemeanor counts Friday stemming from his intoxicated driving arrest near his home in March. Hamilton County prosecutors said Irsay was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a schedule I or II controlled substance or its metabolite in the body, which carry maximum penalties of 60 days in jail and $500 fines for each count. A probable cause affidavit said Irsay was driving under the influence of oxycodone and/or hydrocodone, both powerful painkillers. Irsay was arrested near his home at about 3 a.m. on March 16 with $29,000 in cash and bottles of prescription drugs in his vehicle. Police said Irsay denied being drunk and told an officer he had taken several prescription medications during the day. A police report said the 54-year-old billionaire was so disoriented that officers made him sit on the hood of a patrol car to keep him from falling, and that he had trouble reciting the alphabet. Police had filed four preliminary felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, charges that each carried possible sentences of six months to three years in prison. Prosecutors took weeks before deciding to file the misdemeanor charges instead. Colts spokesman Avis Roper declined immediate comment. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is still reviewing the matter. The NFLs Personal Conduct Policy applies to all league personnel and holds all of us accountable. We are reviewing the matter and will take appropriate action in accordance with the policy, he said in an email.From wire reports Associated PressLos Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling sits with his wife Shelly on Nov. 12, 2010, during a game between the Clippers and the Detroit Pistons in Los Angeles.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES Donald Sterling is turning his ownership stake in the Los Angeles Clippers over to his estranged wife, and she is in talks with the NBA to sell the team, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press on Friday. The individual, who wasnt authorized to speak publicly about the deal, said the couple reached the agreement after weeks of discussion. Donald Sterling is out, and there will be new owners, the individual told the AP Neither Shelly Sterling nor her attorney had any comment Friday.

She wants to be able to say, Im selling the team, not the NBA is selling the team, and have meaningful control over that transaction, the individual told the AP Donald Sterling was banned for life and fined $2.5 million by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver after the release of a recording last month in which Sterling made racist remarks involving blacks, which comprise the majority of players in the league. Sterling told female friend V. Stiviano not to bring blacks to Clippers games during a recorded conversation. Sterling specifically mentioned Magic Johnson, and then criticized the NBA Hall of Famer again as a poor role model during a TV interview.

Associated PressDETROIT Anibal Sanchez gave Detroit a much-needed quality start, and the Tigers snapped their four-game losing streak with a 7-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night. Austin Jackson and Andrew Romine homered for Detroit, and Ian Kinsler doubled three times against his former team. Sanchez (2-2) allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings. He struck out five without a walk. Scott Baker (0-1) allowed six runs and eight hits for the Rangers, who put Prince Fielder on the disabled list before the game with what is likely to be a season-ending neck problem. Romines solo homer in the sixth was the first of his career. The AL Central-leading Tigers were finally facing some adversity after allowing 31 runs in their previous four games. They fell behind again when Sanchez allowed two runs in the second, but Baker didnt hold the lead for long. Jackson tied it with a two-run homer in the second, and Kinsler and Miguel Cabrera started the Detroit third with back-to-back doubles. Detroit scored two more runs in the fifth on an RBI double by Kinsler and a run-scoring grounder by Torii Hunter. Sanchez, who won the 2013 ERA title in the American League, hadnt made it through seven innings this season before Friday. This was his second start since missing around three weeks with a finger injury on his throwing hand. Mitch Moreland opened the scoring for Texas with a two-run double, but Sanchez allowed only three harmless singles after that. Baker, the 10th pitcher to start a game for the Rangers already this season, couldnt hold off the Tigers in the middle innings. Even Romine got in on the act, ending a 2-for-35 stretch with a homer down the line in right that gave the Tigers a 6-2 lead. Kinsler, traded from Texas to Detroit for Fielder in an offseason blockbuster, scored three times. He came home on Hunters RBI groundout in the seventh.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 8, Indians 4BALTIMORE Chris Davis homered and had four RBIs, Adam Jones had three hits and scored three runs and the Baltimore Orioles beat Cleveland 8-4 Friday night to snap the Indians four-game winning streak. Nelson Cruz hit his 15th homer and Nick Markakis had four hits for the Orioles, who have 38 runs and 62 hits in their last five games. Davis hit a two-run double in the third inning and put Baltimore up 5-4 in the fifth with his seventh homer, the fourth in four games. Bud Norris (3-4) gave up four runs, six hits and three walks in six innings to earn his first win in four starts since May 1. Making his second major league appearance, Clevelands T.J. House (0-1) allowed five runs and 11 hits in six innings.Blue Jays 3, Athletics 2TORONTO Liam Hendriks won his season debut, Steve Tolleson hit a two-run home run and the Toronto Blue Jays were victorious for the ninth time in 11 games with a 3-2 defeat of the Oakland Athletics on Friday night. Brandon Moss homered for the seventh time in 18 games for the Athletics, who lost their second straight following a five-game winning streak. Oaklands loss was just its third in the past 14 games overall. Toronto evened its home record at 11-11 and beat Oakland for the fourth time in 12 meetings north of the border. Promoted from Triple-A to face the Athletics, who came in with the best record in the majors, Hendriks (1-0) allowed one run and three hits in 5 2-3 innings. The right-hander walked three and struck out three. Scott Kazmir (5-2) took the loss.NATIONAL LEAGUE Reds 5, Cardinals 3CINCINNATI Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer off Shelby Miller, who had won his last six decisions, and Devin Mesoraco added a solo shot as the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Friday night and tightened the top of the NL Central. The Reds moved within three games of the second-place Cardinals, who have won seven of their last nine games while staying right behind the division-leading Brewers. Cincinnati is 3-4 against St. Louis this season and trying to end a longstanding trend this weekend. The Reds have lost nine of their last 10 series against the Cardinals. Miller (6-3) lost his first two starts before winning six straight decisions, the best such streak of his career. He allowed five runs in five innings. Homer Bailey (4-3) escaped numerous threats during his six innings. Aroldis Chapman gave up a hit in the ninth while getting his fourth save.Brewers 9, Marlins 5MIAMI Mark Reynolds hit a pair of two-run homers Friday and the Milwaukee Brewers won a record-setting slugfest at Marlins Park, beating Miami 9-5. Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones hit two solo homers apiece for Miami, and Khris Davis homered for Milwaukee. The teams combined for seven homers, the most since the pitcher-friendly ballpark opened in 2012. Reynolds homered in the fourth and again in the fifth, increasing his season total to 11. It was his 20th career multihomer game. Milwaukee didnt need slugger Ryan Braun, who sat out after a flareup of the oblique strain that sent him to the disabled list earlier this season. The Brewers hope he can rejoin the lineup by Sunday.Pirates 4, Nationals 3PITTSBURGH Charlie Morton worked into the sixth inning to snap a lengthy losing streak and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Friday night. Morton (1-6) allowed one run on five hits in 5 2-3 workmanlike innings for his first victory since last September. Pedro Alvarez hit his ninth home run of the season after being dropped from fourth to sixth in the lineup. Ike Davis, who replaced Alvarez as the cleanup hitter, went 2 for 4 with two runs scored. Jason Grilli picked up his first save since April 14 in his return from the disabled list. The Pirates have won three straight and four of five. Jordan Zimmerman (3-2) labored through six innings to lose for the first time in over a month. Denard Span had two of Washingtons eight hits. The Nationals left 11 runners on base while losing their third straight. AL Associated PressTexas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor avoids Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera after getting the force out during the fifth inning Friday in Detroit. Torii Hunter hit into the play and beat the throw to first.

He has the right to appear at a New York hearing on June 3 in front of the other owners and make a presentation before the leagues board of governors votes on terminating his ownership. He is entitled to a lawyer at the hearing, but strict courtroom rules of evidence would not apply. It will take three-quarters of the owners to terminate Sterlings ownership, and the league says also that of Shelly Sterling. She has no plans to sue the NBA, the individual told the AP. Shes trying to make nice. Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, the board chairman, will preside over the June 3 hearing. If three-fourths of the other 29 owners vote to sustain the charge, Sterling will be forced to sell the team he has owned since 1981. Silver has said he is confident he has the 23 votes that are necessary. If Sterling does not respond to the charge within five business days, or does not appear at the hearing, it would be deemed an admission of the total validity of the charges as presented, according to the NBA constitution. Donald Sterlings attorney had asked for a three-month delay, which the league rejected. His attorney had no comment Friday. Article 14a of the NBAs constitution, which deals with the consequences of termination of ownership, allows the interest of a terminated owner to be placed under the management and control of the commissioner. He would then have the power to exercise all of the rights that belonged to that owner, including the right to transfer all or any portion of that interest at such prices and terms that the commissioner deems reasonable and appropriate. Ultimately, any sale of the team would have to be approved by the leagues owners. Shelly Sterling initially had said she would fight to keep her 50 percent share of the team even if her husband is forced to sell, but the league has made it clear that all ownership interests in the Clippers will be terminated if the other owners vote to sever his control at the June hearing. NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement Friday that the league is continuing to follow the process for terminating the Clippers ownership. One owner, speaking to the AP on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the sale, said the league would have to be certain the buyer had no connection to the Sterling family. Miami Heat star LeBron James was one of the first and strongest voices to speak out after the recording of Donald Sterlings comments was posted online last month. We dont want this to linger around our sport, James said Friday after practice. The quicker it gets done, the sooner we can move on. STERLINGContinued from Page B1 Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas PGA Tour rookie Brice Garnett opened with an eagle Friday on way to a 4-under 66 and the second-round lead at Colonial. At 7-under 133, Garnett had a one-stroke lead over Robert Streb and Chris Stroud, who made five putts from more than 20 feet in a 64. Streb shot 68. Adam Scott, playing as No. 1 in the world for the first time, shot a 68 to get to 1 under. He has made the cut his last 34 PGA Tour events, the longest active streak. Matt Kuchar, ranked No. 4 in the world, had a chance to move to the top with a victory. But he missed the cut by a stroke, shooting 72-70. First-round leader Dustin Johnson had a 70 drop into a tie for fourth at 5 under.Catriona Matthew leads Airbus LPGA ClassicMOBILE, Ala. Catriona Matthew remained atop the Airbus LPGA Classic leaderboard Friday, birdieing four of the last seven holes to take a one-stroke advantage over Charley Hull into the weekend.

Matthew had six birdies and a bogey on the par-4 ninth in her afternoon round. The Scot won the last of her four LPGA Tour titles in 2011. Hull also dropped a stroke on No. 9, the final hole of her morning round. The English player birdied Nos. 6-8 and had five birdies in a seven-hole stretch before closing with her lone bogey of the week. Anna Nordqvist, Jessica Korda and Hee Young Park were 10 under. Nordqvist had a 66, Korda shot 67 and Park had a 66.Lowry, Bjorn lead BMW PGA after second roundVIRGINIA WATER, England Shane Lowry birdied his closing two holes for a 2-under 70 Friday to join Thomas Bjorn in the lead after the second round of the BMW PGA Championship. Lowry overcame a double bogey on the ninth hole by making four birdies on his back nine to erase a twoshot deficit to Bjorn, who carded a 72. The duo was four shots clear of the field with 10-under totals of 134. Spains Rafa Cabrera-Bello (73) and former BMW PGA winner Luke Donald (67) were tied for third.Tom Watson has share of Senior PGA leadBENTON HARBOR, Mich. Tom Watson shot a 3under 68 on Friday for a share of the lead in the Senior PGA Championship with fellow Hall of Famer Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie and three other players. The 64-year-old Watson, playing alongside Langer and Montgomerie, had five birdies and a double bogey to reach 4-under 138 after two rounds at Harbor Shores. Langer also had a 68, and Montgomerie shot 69 to join Watson, Bart Bryant, Steen Tinning and Kiyoshi Murota atop the leaderboard. Bryant shot 67, Tinning 66 and Murota 65. Murota, from Japan, had the best round of the day, chipping in for eagles on the par-5 fifth and ninth. PGA Tour rookie Garnett leads at Colonial

Figure 8s leader riding a streak of three straight feature wins SEANARNOLD CorrespondentEric Sharrone struggles to recall his earliest days in racing, but he knows his current streak the best hes experienced. The 29-year-old Floral City racecar driver and owner has reeled off three feature wins in a row in the Pro Figure Eights class at the Citrus County Speedway. Two of the wins have come from back-row starts, and his most recent came after he and his team rebuilt the front of the drivers side after he crashed into the wall during practice. Sharrone may be in the middle of a personal high point in racing, but hes no newbie to the sport. His family name runs deep in local racing, as both his parents have been behind the wheel. More recently, Erics cousin Jeremy won Mini Stocks points championships in 2011 and 2012. Erics white No. 32 was acquired through a trade with its original builder, Erics uncle Tim Sharrone. It doesnt take (a special) motor, Sharrone said of the car. Nothing has been changed motor-wise. Its just been trial and error. You cant get itany better, I think. It doesnt spin its tires anymore. But Id sell it any day to build a better one. Erics younger brother Deric Sharrone is part of Erics MTS Racing, named after Erics 3year-old son Mason Tanner Sharrone. Derics No. 59, a black street stock owned by Eric, is expected to run in todays debut of the Street and Pure Stock Figure Eights class. Family friend and fellow Pro Figure Eights competitor Thomas Peet also drives one of Erics cars, and finished second to Sharrone on April 12. (Peets) got all the shocks, and weve got the cars, Sharrone said. He talks to guys in California that run this type of suspension. Its a full-time job, working on these cars, he added. Deric, Thomas and I, and our old ladies, Melissa and Amanda, who put up with us, we take care of everything, and work at it all week long. Eric Sharrone also owns a Pure Stock that has yet to receive a number. His 32 is currently the focal point for the team, as he sits with a 19-point lead in the standings. Its the priority, now that were leading in points, Sharrone said. We want another championship. Sharrones first foray into racing was in a blue Pontiac, in what he describes as a street-legal junker class. He finished first in his second race, but was disqualified for having a chain on the bumper. He won Rookie of the Year in 2001, in the Hobby Stocks division. His first official win was a long time coming, but hes accumulated 23 wins since. While many drivers get their starts in smaller classes like gokarts, Sharrone took what was available. No one ever had go-karts, or anything else, around me, he said. I never played sports or nothing in school, I just always worked on cars. After some time off, Sharrone entered the Street Stock Figure 8s class in 2010, before winning the points title in 2011. I was scared to death when in my first Figure 8 race, he recalled. Theres no comparison from oval racing to Figure 8s. The adrenaline is five times more intense. Theres just no comparison. Pro Figure 8s return to Citrus on June 14. BUTCH CRAWFORD /For the ChronicleEric and Deric Sharrone and family. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentSuper Late Models and regular Figure 8s (Pure and Street Stocks) make their debut today at the Citrus County Speedway, joining Street Stocks, Pure Stocks and Pro and Rookie Hornets for todays racing action in Inverness. Last years six features in the Late Model class at Citrus yielded six unique winners, including Herb Neumann Jr. (98), Dale Sanders (1), Wayne Anderson (50), Mike Bresnahan (69), Scott Grossenbacher (09) and T.J. Duke (82). Citrus veterans Neumann and Sanders finished No. 1 and 2, respectively, in the standings. Neumann, a combined 14-time champion, scored his seventh title in the Late Model class since 2001, while also prevailing in the Open Wheel Modified class in his son Curtis No. 01. Todd Brown (No. 23), of Lake Panasoffkee, finished third in points. Anderson, of Wildwood, won an additional four Late Model races at Citrus in 2013 under the Florida United Promoters Series (FUPS). Daniel Webster, of Brooksville, last Saturdays feature winner in the Sportsman class at Citrus, also prevailed in a Late Model FUPS event in Inverness last season, en route to capturing the Late Model FUPS points championship. Behind a pair of wins on the season, Jimmy Kruse (82) wrapped up his second consecutive Figure 8s points title on his last visit to Citrus on Oct. 19. Travis Nichols led the division with three wins, while Pnut Higginbotham won twice in finishing second in points. Floral City brothers Deric and Eric Sharrone finished first and second, respectively, in the 2013 Figure 8s finale, in a pair of No. 59 cars owned by Eric. In oval Street Stocks, Tim Wilson (8) extended his win total to nine with his sixth feature win last Saturday. Wilson faced strong competition from heat winner Nicholas Malverty (29), before the latter experienced car trouble. Floral Citys Dora Thorne (48) took second in the feature, while Homosassas Camron Ray (9) finished third. Wes Wilson, of Floral City, won the most recent Pure Stocks feature in wire-to-wire fashion on May 10. Two-time winner Larry Welter Sr. came in second that night to add to his points lead. Michael Hart (99) won his first race at Citrus in last Saturdays Pro Hornet feature. Joe Marsicek rode the same 99 to victory in the Rookie Hornet feature. Qualifying runs begin at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand admission prices are $13 for adults, $9 for seniors and students (ages 12 to 17), and $5 for children ages 11 and under (children under 42 inches are free). Family passes for two adults and two students or children are $30.SPORTSMAN DRIVERS FINED AND SUSPENDEDAaron Williamson and Brandon Morris were each issued a fine and suspension by the Citrus County Speedway for misconduct during last Saturdays Sportsman feature. Williamson, of Lakeland, received a $500 fine and a two-race suspension for deliberately crashing Morris into the third wall on lap 22. Morris was given a $100 fine and one-race suspension for reaching into Williamsons car and grabbing him after the crash. Neither driver finished the race. The two tangled up in their prior race at Citrus on April 26, when Morris appeared to initiate contact from the top lane while Williamson rode below him on the back stretch of lap 48, sending Williamsons car sliding into the infield. Morris, who is coming off a points title in FUPS, went on to win the race, while Williamson, a winner in this years seasonopener, was left to take fourth after being penalized. (Williamson) is probably mad at me, Morris said that night in victory lane. But next time he gasses it up and almost runs me into the fence again, hes going to get moved again. Both drivers are among the best local competitors in the Sportsman class, as each have claimed at least four points championships. Today: Super Lates, Fig 8s Chaves wins Indy Lights with last-lap passINDIANAPOLIS Gabby Chaves lost by inches last year. He won by a couple feet this time around. The young driver from Belardi Auto Racing atoned for a heartbreaking defeat last year by passing Matthew Brabham on the final lap Friday to win the Indy Lights race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in one of the closest finishes in the history of the track. Chaves put the nose of his red No. 5 car ahead of Brabhams blue and white No. 83 as the two cars zipped across the famed yard of bricks. The official margin was 0.0050 seconds, or just about twice margin that separated Chaves from winner Peter Dempsey a year ago in the closest finish in Indianapolis history. The best way I can describe it is black and white, night and day, Chaves said. Chaves had spent the final five laps jockeying for second place with Zach Veach, who wound up third. All that jostling appeared to give Brabham some breathing room on the final lap, but Chaves pulled close down the back stretch and then moved high going through the final turn. It was a drag race to the finish line, and for a moment, Chaves was not sure who had won. I looked up at the pylon and I still saw the 83 in first and thought, Aww, man, Chaves said. It wasnt until I got to turn 1, the short chute, that everyone in the radio was screaming. I said, I dont know what youre saying but Im pretty sure the message is clear.Associated Press
RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Unlike the ancient Israelites, Im not in the habit of naming rocks. Not being judgmental, just never thought to do so. Apparently, the Philistines were set to slaughter the Israelites. Full-on assault, take no prisoners. If you recall from the story of David and Goliath, the Philistines were huge, mean and scary. So, when the Israelites heard about the upcoming attack, they went to their leader, Samuel, and begged him to ask God to save them. God answered with thunder so fierce that not only did it rattle the Philistines teeth, but it so confused them that they went in the wrong direction. The Israelites pursued them and, after a major smack down, took most of them out and sent the rest running (1 Samuel 7, paraphrase mine). To commemorate the victory, Samuel took a rock and named it Ebenezer, which means stone of help. Samuel said, Thus far the Lord has helped us. In other places in the Bible, people have taken stones and set them in places as memorials, visible reminders of something God had done for them. In AA, people who reach milestones in their sobriety, such as 90 days or six months without a drink, are often given a token. Some people carry these tokens in their pockets or wear them around their necks so they can see and touch them and remember that they were once and still are powerless except for God helping them. On a shelf on my bookcase at home I have three yet un-named rocks that I picked up on the beach in Mexico where my parents live. For many years I felt emotionally separated from my mom my fault, not hers. But after that visit a few years ago, and ever since, Ive sensed a difference in my soul, like God healed something. The rocks are just rocks, but theyre not. Theyre Ebenezers. Thus far the Lord has helped me. The hymn Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, written back in the 1700s, talks about Ebenezers. One verse goes: Here I raise mine Ebenezer; hither by thy help Im come; and I hope, by thy good pleasure, safely to arrive at home. Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God; he, to rescue me from danger, interposed his precious blood. In the world of Christianity, theres a movement to modernize hymns and a counter-movement to keep the archaic, old fashioned words like hither and raise mine Ebenezer. Some churches sing Here I raise to thee an altar in place of the raising Ebenezer line so modern people wont think it means lifting up a miniature Charles Dickens character, a tiny Scrooge in a top hat and black wool coat. But to omit Ebenezer is to omit something deeply wonderful. We raise and sing about our Ebenezers to remember all the ways God has been our help thus far. Just recently, I had a brief moment of doubt. I started thinking that maybe what I believe is a fairy tale and that my certainty is just delusion. Then I raised mine Ebenezer, or maybe God raised it for me, bringing to mind the days and years before I believed when I was nearly paralyzed with fear all the time, unable to sleep, certain that a B-52 bomber would crash through my bedroom window while I slept. I remembered the day I believed, May 30, 1978, and how it was the day God delivered me from crippling fear, how instantaneously, the B-52 bombers (we lived on an Air Force base at the time) were redirected away from my window, how my paralyzing fear and dread of death went away. It was nothing I had done. God had saved me. He had spared me. He had delivered me. All I had done was realize my powerlessness to save myself and cry out to him and he answered. In moments of doubt, in times of trouble, when I have nowhere else to turn, I raise mine Ebenezer and remember that Jesus sought me when a stranger, wandering from the fold of God and that he, to rescue me from danger, interposed (intervened with) his precious blood. Thus far, the Lord has helped me, and he will continue to do so, because he is faithful.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. And the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the coasts thereof did Israel deliver out of the hands of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites. I Samuel: 12-14 Special events Red Level Baptist Church will have a yard sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.

Board met privately about Bible classOKLAHOMA CITY Emails to school board members and school administrators in a district that approved a Bible-based curriculum show they broke into small groups for meetings with the programs chief backer to circumvent a law requiring government bodies to meet in public. The emails obtained by The Associated Press show the April 14 meetings with Steve Green and other members of the Museum of the Bible curriculum team, the president of the Hobby Lobby arts and crafts store chain, occurred just hours before the Mustang School Board approved the course as an elective.UK rebukes diplomat over death sentenceLONDON The British government has summoned a senior Sudanese diplomat to express its anger at the death sentence handed to a Christian woman who refused to renounce her faith. Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but whose mother was an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia, was convicted of apostasy May 15 for marrying a Christian, and given four days to repent and escape death. She was sentenced after that period expired. Human rights groups and Western governments have condemned the sentencing of the 26-year-old, who is eight months pregnant. Britains Foreign Office said Monday it had summoned Sudans charge daffaires, Bukhari Afandi, and urged him to try to overturn the sentence. Sudans penal code criminalizes the conversion of Muslims to other religions, which is punishable by death.Judge dismisses IRS suit from atheistsLOUISVILLE, Ky. A federal judge in Kentucky has dismissed a lawsuit brought by an atheist group challenging tax exemptions for churches and religious groups in the federal tax code. U.S. District Judge William O. Bertelsman ruled that American Atheists Inc. was speculating about being potentially injured by the tax code or treated differently from other organizations because its never sought to be classified as a religious organization and receive the attendant tax benefits. The New Jersey-based American Atheists sued the IRS in federal court in northern Kentucky in 2013 saying the tax-exempt status granted to religious organizations is discriminatory and should be ruled unconstitutional.Group knocks funding for Bible theme parkSIOUX CITY, Iowa A national group says Iowa shouldnt fund a planned Christian-themed park in Sioux City and should take back a $140,000 grant. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, of Madison, Wisconsin, said in a letter to Iowa officials last week that giving grant money to The Shepherds Garden violates the U.S. and Iowa constitutions. Iowa Economic Development Authority spokeswoman Tina Hoffman said state money from the Vision Iowa grant would pay only for green space at the park and not for any of the projects religious elements. Garrett Smith is a member of The Shepherds Garden board of directors and said the project is Christian in focus but nondenominational. He said the group didnt seek state funding for the parks religious elements, specifically to avoid any issues about public funding for religion. instructor Greg Gunn at 352-428-6348 or email email@example.com or visit www.topgunnkarate.com.

Associated PressVATICAN CITY Pope Francis insists his weekend pilgrimage to the Middle East is a strictly religious commemoration of a key turning point in Catholic-Orthodox relations. But the delicate, three-day mission will test his diplomatic skills as he navigates Israeli-Palestinian tensions after the failure of the latest round of peace talks and fallout from Syrias civil war. For a pope who embraces spontaneity and shuns papal protocol and security, the potential pitfalls are obvious. Not to mention the fact that Francis stated purpose for traveling to Jordan, Israel and the West Bank has little to do with the geopolitical headlines of the day. Francis has said his pilgrimage is designed to mark the 50th anniversary of the historic meeting in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and the spiritual leader of the worlds Orthodox Christians, Patriarch Athenagoras. Their iconic 1964 embrace with the diminutive Paul almost dwarfed by the bearded, 6-foot, 4inch Patriarch of Constantinople ended 900 years of mutual excommunications and divisions between Catholic and Orthodox stemming from the Great Schism of 1054, which split Christianity. It was the first meeting of a pope and ecumenical patriarch since 1437, when Patriarch Joseph II was forced to kiss the feet of Pope Eugene IV in a sign of subservience. This meeting just opened the way ... for reconciliation, the GreekOrthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem, Theophilos III, told The Associated Press in a recent interview in his offices in Jerusalems Old City. The highlight of the trip that begins Saturday will be a prayer service led by Francis and Athengoras successor, Bartholomew I, inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where the faithful believe Jesus was crucified and resurrected. The service itself will be historic, given that the three main Christian communities that share the church Greek-Orthodox, Armenian and Roman Catholic will pray together at the same time. Prayer services at the ancient church are usually separate, with each Catholic and Orthodox community jealously guarding its turf, scheduling individual services and getting into occasional fistfights over infractions stark evidence of the divisions that remain five decades after Paul VI and Athenagoras made a first step toward Christian unity. And tellingly, no representative of the Russian Orthodox Church is expected to attend. Nevertheless, the Vatican is touting the service as an important step in the tortured millennium of Catholic-Orthodox division that began to heal in 1964. During his weekly general audience, Francis asked for prayers. It will be a strictly religious trip, he said, adding that he also wanted to pray for peace in the land that has suffered so much. In a strong indication that Francis priorities arent exclusively religious, his secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, said the pope would be bringing a very strong message of peace just weeks after the latest round of IsraeliPalestinian peace talks ended in failure. I truly hope that the fruit would be to help all those responsible and all those of good will to take courageous decisions on the path to peace, Parolin told Vatican Television on the eve of the trip. While ecumenical relations are getting the place of honor on this trip, interfaith relations with Muslim and Jews are getting relatively little attention. Unlike the 2000 visit to the Holy Land by St. John Paul II and the 2009 visit by Pope Benedict XVI, no interfaith gathering of Israels chief rabbis and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, who is in charge of Jerusalems Islamic holy places, is planned. Francis will meet with the Jewish and Muslim leaders separately, and he is bringing along two old friends from Argentina as part of his papal delegation, Rabbi Abraham Skorka and a leader of Argentinas Islamic community, Omar Abboud. But the absence of a joint encounter with the local leaders of the three main religions of the Holy Land has drawn some criticism that Francis is losing an opportunity to promote interfaith dialogue, even while ensuring that such an encounter isnt exploited by participants, as occurred in the past. If he comes to the Holy Land and doesnt take an initiative for the sake of peace, thats a disappointment, said Rabbi David Rosen, the head of interreligious affairs at the American Jewish Committee and a veteran of Catholic-Jewish dialogue. Skorka told reporters this week that his presence on the delegation and friendship with the pope showed that interfaith dialogue was possible and that it is possible to bring Rome and Jerusalem closer together.C4SATURDAY, MAY24, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION SAR005713Special Event or Weekly Services Please CallDarrell Watson 564-2917For Information On Your Religious Advertising And Deadlines.

C6SATURDAY, MAY24, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ellen Key, a Swedish author who died in 1926, said, The educator must above all understand how to wait; to reckon all effects in the light of the future, not of the present. I teach a lot of classes, especially during the early part of the year. I see some mistakes made time and time again. This deal highlights one of the most common. After East opens one heart as dealer, South makes a takeout double, and West passes, what should North do? Assuming the advancer (the doublers partner) does not have a hand suitable for notrump, an inexperienced player answers a takeout double by bidding the suit that he prefers at a minimum level regardless of high-card count. He expects partner to be psychic in divining how many points he holds. By an unpassed hand, a new suit shows about 0-8 points. A single jump in a suit promises 9-11 points. And with a hand as strong as Norths, one should start with a cue-bid of the openers suit. This is artificial, just indicating 12 points or more. (A passed hand should lower those ranges by two points.) After this cue-bid, the hunt is on for a fit. Here, South rebids two spades, North raises to three spades, and South goes on to four spades. West leads the heart three. East takes two tricks with his king and ace, then shifts to the club jack. How should South play the trumps? There are only 13 high-card points missing. Ergo, East must have the spade king. Declarer should play a spade to dummys ace and continue with a low spade. When the king luckily appears, the contract is home.

They had no family nearby, so they were fixtures at our table for all of the major holidays. We genuinely liked their company. We vacationed together on several occasions, and we came to treat them like family. We hadnt heard from them in a while, so I decided to phone. Imagine my shock when they casually mentioned that they had left Seattle and moved to Florida without a word of goodbye. Their coolness on the phone made it clear that they no longer have any interest in being in our lives. I am deeply hurt by their behavior and am at a loss to understand what on Earth we could have done to deserve this callous treatment. I will not attempt to rekindle this relationship, but I still find it distressing and unfathomable. What is your take on this? Upset in Seattle Dear Seattle: We agree that this behavior is both surprising and unkind, but consider yourself well rid of a couple who obviously did not value the friendship as much as you did. Moving away without informing you means you are not very high up on the list of people they care about. Sorry. Dear Annie: I hope this may be of some help to senior citizens. My brothers wife died last year, and he has been lost ever since. He started calling me to ask what the date is. I came up with the idea of giving him an extra cellphone and charger that I didnt need. I showed him how to plug it in to charge every Sunday night. Now when he cant remember the date, all he has to do is open the phone. It also helps in case of emergency, because the phone allows him to call 911. He cant make any other calls on it, but he feels much more secure, and the phone does not need to be activated. Cadyville Dear Cadyville: Some readers may ask how this is different from a calendar and a landline, but we think its a great idea because your brother can take the phone with him wherever he goes. (When calling 911 from a deactivated phone, however, the operator will not be able to determine your location without your giving it.) Dear Annie: I would like to commend Newbury Park, Calif., on his success in turning his life around by taking responsibility for his health and making the necessary changes for his weight loss. Having been an operating room nurse since 1979, I have seen the results of our obesity epidemic. The health problems caused by obesity and smoking are debilitating to the person and extremely sad to see. Kidney disease, vascular insufficiency and cardiac disease are serious health problems that lead to myriad treatments with varying degrees of success. The best thing a person can do for themselves is exactly what Newbury Park and his wife did, which is take responsibility for their own health. I can only imagine how difficult it was for them to lose so much weight and change their eating and exercise habits, but the results speak for themselves. If more people were willing to take charge of their own health and help reverse the large amount of money spent dealing with these preventable diseases, we might help bridge the regrettable divide in our country caused in part by the issue of health care.
