As sheriff's deputies cautiously sur-

aware of the gunman and his potential
for harm.
They knew of his fondness for

weapons. They knew of his depressed
mental state. They knew of threats to his
wife and son.
They also knew he was ready to die in
a violent fashion.
Deputies knew plenty about David Bar-
clay and what he was capable of doing that

That's because as they moved in posi-

Crystal River City Council. The park is also going to be the site of an experimental living shoreline plan the

Hunter Springs Park plan would remove barriers

Staff writer
t is an emerging idea de-
signed to help bay-front
communities and landown-

and create valuable wetlands
where bulkheads used to exist.
This city and the Southwest
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict are working on the concept
of a living shoreline or an
emergent shelf- for one of the
city's popular parks, Hunter
Springs Park.
City officials are massaging a
conceptual plan to reconfigure
and beautify the park and the
water district will help pay to
construct a living shoreline.

Warnings on 'gaming'

patient waits go back years

Associated Press
this week confirming that 1,700 vet-
erans were "at risk of being lost or
forgotten" at a Phoenix hospital
was hardly the first independent
review that documented long wait
times for some patients seeking
health care from the Department
of Veterans Affairs and inaccurate
records that understated the depth
of the problem.
Eleven years ago, a task force es-
tablished by President George W
Bush determined that at least
236,000 veterans were waiting six
months or more for a first appoint-
ment or an initial follow-up. The
task force warned that more veter-
ans were expected to enter the sys-
tem and that the delays threatened
the quality of care the VA provided.
Two years ago, a former hospital
administrator told senators during
an oversight hearing that VA hospi-
tals were "gaming the system" and
manipulating records to make it ap-
pear that wait time standards, the
criteria for awarding manager and
executive bonuses, were being met

Since 2005, the department's in-
spector general has issued 19 re-
ports on how long veterans have to
wait before getting appointments
and treatment at VA medical facil-
ities, concluding that for many, suf-
ficient controls don't exist to
ensure that those needing care get
For example, in October 2007,
the VA inspector general told the
Senate Committee on Aging that
"schedulers at some facilities were
interpreting the guidance from
their managers to reduce waiting
times as instruction to never put
patients on the electronic waiting
list. This seems to have resulted in
some 'gaming' of the scheduling
That's virtually identical to lan-
guage in a 2010 VA memorandum,
and again in the latest inspector
general's report this week that led
dozens of members of Congress to
call for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki
to resign. He abided by those
wishes Friday, telling Obama that
he had become a distraction as the

country describe

VA experiences

Associated Press
The U.S. Department of Veter-
ans Affairs became an explosive
political story this week, culmi-
nating with the resignation of VA
Secretary Eric Shinseki.
The final straw appeared to be
a report that described chronic
wait times at the Phoenix hospi-
tal and found that about 1,700
veterans in need of care were
"at risk of being lost or forgot-
ten." The VA and independent
investigators with the Office of
Inspector General are still in the
process of uncovering problems
at dozens of other VA facilities
around the country while some
lawmakers are calling for crimi-
nal probes.

Americans and their cars: A love affair on fumes?

Associated Press

The '57 Chevy was still a
year away when the launch
of the interstate highway
system kicked U.S. car cul-
ture into high gear But six
decades later, changing
habits and attitudes suggest
America's romance with
the road may be fading.
After rising almost con-
tinuously since World War
II, driving by U.S. house-
holds has declined nearly
10 percent since 2004, with
a start before the Great
Recession suggesting eco-
nomics is not the only
cause. "There's something
more fundamental going
on," said Michael Sivak of
the University of Michigan
Transportation Research
The average American
household now owns
fewer than two cars, re-
turning to the levels of the
early 1990s.
More teens and 20-
somethings are waiting to
get a license. Less than
70 percent of 19-year-olds
now have one, down from
87 percent two decades ago.
"I wonder if they've de-
cided that there's another,
better way to be free and to
be mobile," said Cotten

tory of Automobility in

placed by shopping online

tions and choices.

where two-wheel commut-
ing has doubled since
2000. It's still a small per-
centage, but more resi-
dents are testing the idea
of leaving cars behind.
A second light rail line
opens in June. Street cor-
ners sprout racks of blue-
and-green shared bikes.
About 45 percent of those
who work downtown com-
mute by means other than a
car, mostly by express bus.
That syncs with figures
showing Americans took a
record 10.7 billion trips on
mass transit last year, up
37 percent since 1995.
"There's a lot of people
who want the less-driving
lifestyle, definitely," says
Sam Newberg, an urban
planning consultant and
transportation blogger.

They include Kimani
Beard, 40, who used to
drive for a package ex-
press company Now he's a
graphic and apparel de-
signer who walks or bikes
to a coffee shop a few days
a week, with its Wi-Fi pro-
viding an instant office.
"I don't want to drive
anywhere," he said. "I've
spent my time behind the
wheel, but I think I've
done enough."
Meanwhile, some are re-
thinking the paradigm of
vehicle ownership.
In the suburbs just north
of Chicago, Eugene Dunn
and Justin Sakofs live four
miles apart, but met only
because Dunn's 2005 Pon-
tiac broke down.
Dunn, 43 and a math
tutor, takes a train to work
But getting to his second
job, refereeing youth bas-

ketball on weekends, re-
quired a car he didn't have.
Luckily, Sakofs, the di-
rector of a Jewish day
school, had a Nissan he
didn't need from sundown
Friday to sundown Satur-
day, when his Sabbath
observance precludes
driving. They found each
other through RelayRides,
whose app pairs individ-
ual car owners with neigh-
bors looking to rent.
"Right now, I just need

and make money," Dunn
Car culture is about an
emotional attachment that
can be hard to measure.
A good place to start is
Carlson's Drive-In in
Michigan City, Indiana,
where a car hop arrives at

the window before you
turn off the ignition.
"It definitely takes you
back to an older time,"
says Barry Oliver, recalling
teen nights driving the
strip and stopping here.
Places like Carlson's
were destinations for
Americans embracing
driving as recreation. As
recently as the 1990s, Indi-
ana had nearly 60 vintage
drive-ins. Today just five
or six are left. Drive-in
movie theaters, which
numbered 4,300 nationally
in 1957, have dwindled to
just 350.
Where does that leave
car culture?
"Gear heads live here,"
says Todd Davis, a Lans-
ing, Michigan native visit-
ing the R.E. Olds
Transportation Museum
from Orlando. Away from
Michigan, "it's not like
But Davis' cousin, Sol
Jaffee, isn't convinced.
"Kids will always be in-
terested in cars! I mean,
cars are America, don't
you think?"
But at Wisconsin's
Oshkosh North High
School, enrollment in dri-
ver's education, no longer
required for graduation or
subsidized by the state, has
declined 40 percent.
Like other states, Wis-
consin eliminated funding
for driver's ed, raising the
price of in-school pro-
grams. Today's young peo-
ple often rely on parents
for rides, said driver's ed
teacher Scott Morrison.
And then there's Facebook
and other social media.
While most students still
look forward to the free-
dom conferred by a li-
cense, a small but

self-aware contingent says
it can wait.
"I've never really
needed" to drive, said sen-
iorAshwinraj Karthikeyan.
"It's almost like a rite of pas-
sage for people to drive, but
I know offhand probably
about 15 or 20 people who
don't have their license."

Private island dreams

have a large cost

The News-Press
100 acres and a mansion
built in the 1920s, Little
Bokeelia has what an is-
land needs for the big
leagues: a 10-minute boat
ride's worth of privacy,
electricity from the main-
land and its own reverse
osmosis water plant
Little Bokeelia's price is
in the big leagues as well:
It's listed at $24.5 million,
putting it on the upper
edge of Southwest
Florida's most exclusive
residential submarket
But it's not alone.
The urge to live on one's
own landmass has driven
people to pursue their
dreams on islands large
and small with varying
degrees of success.
That's because the same
features that make islands
alluring privacy and re-
mote location also are
pitfalls that eliminate
many potential buyers,
said real estate agent
Klaus Lang of Michael
Saunders & Co. in Sara-
sota, who represents the
owners of Little Bokeelia.
For one thing, he said,
"The challenge we have is
that all the water in South-
west Florida's not very
deep. If we'd been able to
get a 100-, 150-foot boat in
there, we'd have been able
to sell it in a few weeks."
That same tricky access,
of course, also enhances
the privacy of an island
that's only a 10-minute
ride from the mainland.
Also, Lang noted, the very
rich travel differently than
you and me. "People who
would buy this island, they
probably have the means to
come by helicopter"
But not everyone has a
helicopter, and Fort Myers
businessman Dale Christie
hopes that he can use his
island Pelican Island
just off San Carlos Island
near Fort Myers Beach -
to capitalize on that.
Christie bought the is-
land for $110,000 in 1994 in
a foreclosure sale from the
Federal Deposit Insur-
ance Co. after the real es-
tate crash of the early '90s.
"The thought was to put
a home on the island," he
Technical issues involved
in building on a small island
can be daunting, as Sal
Sabella knows all too well.
Sabella, who grew up in

Cape Coral and now oper-
ates Adquarters, a Fort
Lauderdale advertising
and marketing company,
bought Little Shell Island
in the mouth of the
Caloosahatchee River for
$50,000 in 2003.
In its heyday in the
1970s, the island was home
to the landmark Little Red
Door restaurant and over
the years a piano bar and
a watering hole for the
fishing community
When Sabella bought it,
however, Little Shell was
abandoned and badly
eroded. Still, he hoped to
put up a landmark of his
own: a lighthouse-shaped
weekend getaway vacation
"I've always wanted to
own an island, and I
thought that was ideal," he
said. "Unfortunately, that
one didn't work out"
The island had been two
acres in the '70s, Sabella
said, but had dwindled to
little more than a quarter
acre by the time he bought
"It wasn't big enough,"
he said. "There just wasn't
enough land to secure
Sabella sold Little Shell
for $175,000 in 2008 after
spending thousands of dol-
lars trying to find a way to
build there.
But the dream dies
hard. Asked if he'd ever
own an island again,
Sabella wouldn't rule out
the possibility
"Under the right cir-
cumstances," he said after
a long pause.

GOP elects new state leader

The News Service
of Florida

TAMPA Florida Republi-
cans on Saturday elected a new
leader in a split vote that under-
scored the challenges Gov Rick
Scott faces from within his own
party in his re-election effort.
With a 106-69 vote, GOP ac-
tivists elected Clay County Real-
tor Leslie Dougher as
chairwoman of the Republican
Party of Florida to fill the re-
mainder of the term of outgoing
state party chief Lenny Curry
The quarterly meeting of the
state executive committee also
provided an opportunity for Re-
publicans to fire up their base
and engage in a little Charlie
Crist-bashing less than six
months before the final ballots
are cast in the governor's race.
Dougher, 50, quickly

Became the
heir-apparent to
the leadership
post after Curry
announced his
intention to step
down early this
month. The

Pary of Florida. of leading Re-
publicans, in-
cluding state Sen. John
Thrasher, a onetime RPOF
chairman from St. Augustine
who serves as Scott's campaign
chairman and who nominated
Dougher Saturday morning.
"We are on the precipice, my
friends in the Republican Party,
of really making this state, as
Gov. Scott loves to say, the best

place to live, the best place to
work and the best place to raise
a family and do business,"
Thrasher said. "But we can't get
there if we let extraordinary is-
sues get in the way of that
But in a large white tent out-
side the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay,
Republicans appeared divided
on which direction the party
should go, with 40 percent of the
173 committee members throw-
ing their support behind Eric
Miller, a 47-year-old military vet-
eran who also once challenged
disgraced RPOF former chair-
man Jim Greer
Lake County state committee-
woman Patricia Sullivan of Mt.
Dora nominated Miller, saying
later that the choice "would
have re-energized a lot of grass-
roots activists disillusioned with
some of the decisions the party

has made, pointing to controver-
sial Common Core educational
standards as an example.
Speaking with reporters after
her election, Dougher dis-
counted her margin of victory
"It just means people have a
differing view Right now it's all
about party unity and bringing it
together and supporting our gov-
ernor and getting him re-
elected," said Dougher, who also
holds the position of "chair of
chairs," and is chairwoman of
the RPOF "county caucus."
Scott also downplayed the
"Oh gosh. People are excited.
They're excited that Leslie
Dougher will do a great job.
They're excited that we cut taxes
$500 million. We've cut taxes 40
times. Excited about all the job
openings, the dramatic change
in our economy," Scott told re-

porters after the meeting. "This
is going to be a great election
year for Republicans because
we're doing exactly what we
talked about in 2010."
Others were less enthusiastic
about Scott's evolution since tak-
ing office.
Scott campaigned on a tea party
platform in his first bid for gover-
nor four years ago, pledging to
bring an 'Arizona-style" immigra-
tion law to the state and, in his
first year in office, vetoing a
record $615 million from the
budget, which included $305 mil-
lion of land-buying authority
But, in an effort to reach out to
Hispanic voters who could play a
deciding role in November's elec-
tion, Scott this legislative session
endorsed a measure that will
allow undocumented immigrants
to pay in-state tuition rates at state
colleges and universities.

Man attacked by
bull hospitalized
Polk County deputies say
a 61-year-old Lakeland
man who was gored by a
bull and crawled to safety is
hospitalized and recovering.
Junior Ezar Bessinger
was attacked Wednesday
and suffered broken bones
and gashes covering his
upper body.
The Lakeland Ledger re-
ported that Bessinger was
at the Cattleman's Live-
stock Auction and loading
two bulls and a cow into a
chute that led to a tractor-
trailer when one of the bulls
turned on him.
The black-and-white bull
rammed Bessinger,
stomped him and gored him
several times with its horns.

Milestone nothing short of a miracle

Former Lecanto High School student Steven Geary displays the Lecanto High School diploma he received during last week's
commencement ceremony. Geary, who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy as well as autism, received a standing ovation from
his class while receiving his diploma.

Despite disability,

Staff writer

HOMOSASSA At 3 years
old, Steven Geary picked up a
microphone at his father's
church and pretended to sing.
Born with mild autism and
the more serious Duchenne
muscular dystrophy, he has
only wanted to be like other
At 15, thanks to the Children's
Dream Fund, he and his family
were treated to a seven-day
Nickelodeon cruise where he
got to meet SpongeBob
SquarePants and get slimed but
not before being guest of honor
at a Celebration of Life party at
Pizza Hut with 50 of his friends
and family
Now 18 and in a wheelchair
for the past 10 years, Steven re-
cently reached another mile-
stone when he graduated with
his class at Lecanto High School.
"They called my name -
Steven Patrick Geary," he said.
What he didn't say was how
his class stood and cheered for
him and kept cheering for him
for nearly a minute.
"It was breathtaking," his fa-

Steven Geary attains goal ofgraduatingfrom high school

their, Steve Geary, said.
To his family, it was nothing
short of a miracle.
Just days before, Steven was in
the intensive care unit with
pneumonia atAll Children's Hos-
pital in St Petersburg, his third
bout of pneumonia in two years.
He was so sick that his family
wasn't sure he would survive.
But Steven was determined
to reach his goal of graduating
with his friends.
The school had arranged for
the Gearys to park their van
close to the stadium so Steven
could be comfortable and have
easy access to the stage.
Words cannot express the
family's gratitude.
'Anything we have ever
needed, they've helped us get
it," the elder Geary said.
"They've gone above and be-
yond, and we love them for it."
Last year, the school let
Steven take a pottery class.
Even though he was unable to
make any pottery, the teacher
let him create metal sculptures,
with the assistance of an aide.
They even arranged for his best
friend since Pre-K to be in the
class with him.

"Whenever he missed school,
which was a lot, they'd send
him cards," Steven's mother,
Kim Geary, said. "They've done
so much for him."
The only son with three older
sisters, Steven is the delight of
his family
"He is the most positive boy
I've ever known," said grand-
mother Linda Herrin. "He loves
people and cares more about
others than he does himself."
One of his teachers nick-
named him "Miles of Smiles"
because of his infectious grin
and upbeat attitude.
"He's the reason I'm in nurs-
ing school," said his sister,
Brittany O'Neal. "He's my
The day after graduation,
with Steven still sick, she took
care of him, helped him with
his breathing treatments when
their mother left for Tennessee
to visit their sister who had just
had a baby
"He means the world to me,"
O'Neal said. "I'd do anything to
take care of him."
Even though his disease is
progressing, Steven has goals
he's determined to reach. In a

few weeks there's going to be a
party for him. Later this sum-
mer he hopes to go to Indiana
for his church's youth camp.
He wants a new guitar to play
and he's waiting for "Halo" to
come out so he can play it on
his Xbox.
In the fall, his goal is to con-
tinue to take ESE classes a few
days a week at his now-alma
mater, Lecanto High School. He
can do that until age 21, his
mother said.
Steven really wants to work
in pest control with his brother-
in-law He wants to play his gui-
tar and sing 'Amazing Grace,"
get dressed up in nice slacks
and a tie he loves wearing
ties and go out for pizza.
"Everybody says he's an
angel," Mrs. Geary said.
The family lives one day at a
time, seeing Steven reach his
milestones. A family of strong
Christian faith, they don't rule
out a miracle healing.
In 1999, when Steven was only
3, his dad told the Chronicle,
"Even if he stays this way all his
life, it would be OK It won't
change God, and it won't change
us except make us stronger"

Kentucky man
auctioning rare
comic collection
tucky man is auctioning off his
rare comic book collection that
includes the first appearances of
Superman and Batman.
John Wise collected the valu-
able comic books over three
decades. About 175 comic
books are being auctioned indi-
vidually online.
The comics sold for as little as
10 cents when they were pub-
lished in the late 1930s and
1940s. But now collectors will
pay hundreds of thousands of
dollars for the first editions.
Among the offerings is a pris-
tine issue of Flash Comics No. 1
from 1940, which is expected to
fetch the highest price at the
auction ending Tuesday.
Wise first started collecting
comics at age 12, and sold his
first collection to buy a car as a
Simpsons mural
coming to the real
city of Springfield, Oregon, said
a mural featuring "The Simp-
sons" will be painted on the side
of the Emerald Art Center.
Series creator Matt Groening
grew up in Portland and told
Smithsonian magazine two
years ago that he named Spring-
field after the one in Oregon.
City spokesman Niel Laudati
told The Register-Guard that
Groening will have input on the
mural, and the project resulted
from discussions between the city
and 'The Simpsons" producers on
commemorating the link between
the real and fictitious Springfields.
The mural is expected to be
completed by the end of the

Associated Press
The new arena version of "Jesus Christ Superstar" has
abruptly canceled its 54-city tour just days before its launch
in New Orleans. Producers quietly pulled the plug on the
project Friday without explanation. It was to star punk legend
John "Johnny Rotten" Lydon, left, JC Chasez, Michelle
Williams and Brandon Boyd. The tour was to start June 9 at
Lakefront Arena in New Orleans and include stops in Detroit,
Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis, Phoenix, Seattle, Las Vegas,
Denver, New York City, Boston and Philadelphia.

Laudati said the artwork will
depict Homer lounging in a ham-
mock, Bart climbing a tree,
Marge painting and Lisa and
Maggie riding a bike.
Singer Ray J
arrested at
Beverly Hills hotel
Police arrested singer Ray J at a
Beverly Hills hotel after they said
he became belligerent with staff,
kicked out a patrol car window
and spit at an officer.
A statement from the Beverly
Hills Police Department said offi-
cers were summoned to the
hotel Friday evening to investi-
gate a report that the 33-year-old
singer had inappropriately
touched a woman at the bar.
Officers found the contact was
incidental, and the singer agreed

to leave.
Police said Ray J, whose legal
name is William Ray Norwood,
then refused to leave, became
unruly and used his feet to shat-
ter a patrol car window after
being taken into custody.
Psy's 'Gangnam
Style' hits 2 billion
YouTube views
NEW YORK- It's 2 billion
and counting for Psy and his ir-
repressible "Gangnam Style."
The South Korean pop star's
surprise hit has become the first
YouTube video to surpass 2 billion
views, crossing the mark around
shortly before midnight Friday.
The unlikely viral star holds
the record for most overall views
and most views in a day with 38
million for his "Gangnam Style"
followup "Gentleman."

Amanda Barclay said her

opened the spare bedroom
door anyway to look.
After closing the door,
Kline quickly and quietly
opened the bedroom win-

They ran down the
street to the closest neigh-

Kline told 911 that she

New focus on anti-women violence

AP national writer

Nearly 300 schoolgirls
abducted in Nigeria. A
pregnant Pakistani woman
stoned to death by her
family for marrying the
man she loved. Wide-
spread rape in many war
zones. And in California, a
murderous rampage by a
disturbed young man who
had depicted sorority
members as a prime
From across the world,
startling reports of vio-
lence against women sur-
face week after week. The
World Health Organization
has declared the problem
an epidemic, calculating
that one in three women
worldwide will experience
sexual or physical vio-
lence most often from
their husband or male
Yet even as they decry
the violence and the abun-
dance of misogynistic rhet-
oric, women's rights
activists see reasons for
"The violence has been
happening forever it's
not anything new," said
Serra Sippel, president of
the Washington-based
Center for Health and
Gender Equity "What's
new is that people in the
United States and globally
are coming around to say
'enough is enough,' and
starting to hold govern-
ments and institutional
leaders accountable."
Even in India where
just this past week, two
teenage cousins were
raped and killed by attack-
ers who hung their bodies
from a mango tree there
are signs of change. Public
outrage over the 2012 gang
rape and murder of a

23-year-old student led the
government to expedite
legislation increasing
prison terms for rapists. In
April, a court sentenced
three men to death for rap-
ing a photojournalist in
In the United States, the
military says it's stepping
up efforts to combat sexual
assault in the ranks and
President Barack Obama's
administration is cam-
paigning against sexual vi-
olence at colleges and
universities. A month ago,
for the first time, the De-
partment of Education re-
vealed its list of schools
under investigation for
how they have responded
to the problem.
On May 8, Sen. Barbara
Boxer, D-Calif, and sev-
eral of her colleagues in-
troduced the International
Violence Against Women
Act, a bill intended to
make anti-women violence
a higher diplomatic prior-
ity for the United States.
And from June 10 to 13 in
London, British Foreign
Secretary William Hague
and actress Angelina Jolie
will co-chair the first-ever
Global Summit to End
Sexual Violence in
"It's absolutely essential
that we shed a light on how
pervasive this problem is,"
said Julia Drost, policy ad-
vocate for Amnesty Inter-
national USAs women's
human rights program.
"From the top on down -
world leaders to family
members people need
to take responsibility."
In some important re-
spects, the May 23 ram-
page in California was
different from the sys-
temic violence against
women that abounds in
much of the world. The as-

sailant, Elliot Rodger, had
been plagued by mental
health problems for years,
and four men were among
the six University of Cali-
fornia, Santa Barbara stu-
dents that he killed.
Nonetheless, accounts of
Rodger's hostility to
women, and his bitterness
over sexual rejection, led
to an outpouring of com-
mentary and online debate
over the extent of misogyny
and male entitlement. On
Twitter, using hashtags
such as #YesAllWomen,
many women worldwide
shared their experiences
with everyday harassment
and sexism.
"People are beginning to
make the connection be-
tween the violence and
how women are treated on
a day-to-day basis," said
Liesl Gerntholtz, executive
director of the Women's
Rights Division of Human
Rights Watch.
She welcomed the ever-

expanding ability of
women around the world
- and their male allies -
to show solidarity and
voice anger via social
"It's an issue that's being
taken seriously in a way
that it wasn't before," she
said. "Governments are ac-
knowledging there's a re-
sponsibility of the state to
prevent violence against
women even in the
home and bring perpe-
trators to justice."
The next crucial step,
according to Gerntholtz
and other activists, is to
engage more men and
boys in efforts to break
down gender stereotypes
and condemn anti-women
Yet even as Rodger's
rampage prompted an out-
cry against misogyny, it
also sparked a backlash
from men and women who
said it was wrong to sug-
gest the California killings

reflected a broader prob-
lem of sexism in the U.S.
"Sure, this guy hated
women, but this is a hatred
we should be able to rec-
ognize as insanity," said

cultural programs for the
Independent Women's
Forum. "This has nothing
to do with violence against
Rodger "hated everyone,
he was a misanthrope,"
said Christina Hoff Som-
mers, a resident scholar at
the American Enterprise

Institute who often writes
skeptically about contem-
porary feminism.
"Is there misogyny in
American culture? Yes,"
she said. "But we also have
a problem with male-bash-
ing and hatred of men."
Sommers questioned
the efforts to link develop-
ments in the United States
to the violence and dis-
crimination faced by
women abroad.
"We're a society where
women are equal before
the law ... though certain
activists don't like to hear
that," she said. "Creating
this idea that women in
America are an oppressed
class, that we are held
back by patriarchy similar
to our sisters living under
Sharia law that's just
In contrast, Terry
O'Neill, president of the
National Organization for
Women, said it was appro-
priate to draw interna-
tional parallels. She
contended that govern-
ment neglect of anti-
women practices has been
widespread, whether in
developing nations where
girls are blocked from at-
tending school or in the

administration tried to address
the VAs troubles.
The series of reports over the
years also raises questions about
whether Congress should have
done more to solve the problems
that have so grabbed the nation's
attention in recent weeks.
"Anyone in Congress who
thinks they've done enough for
the VA is simply deluding them-
selves," Democratic Sen. Jay
Rockefeller of West Virginia said
in response to Shinseki's resig-
nation. "Year after year, when
members of Congress have had
the opportunity to provide legit-
imate funding increases for the
VA, they've done just enough to
skirt by"
Pointing to the Bush task force
report from 2003, Joseph Vi-
olante, legislative director for

Disabled American Veterans,
said the problem of access to
health care has been known for
a decade.
"In our mind, a lot of the prob-
lem that is taking place on the
health care side is due to a lack
of sufficient funding, and that's
Congress's jurisdiction. We think
they've fallen short over the
years," Violante said.
Rep. Jeff Miller, the chairman
of the House Committee on Vet-
erans Affairs, said money is not
the problem at the VA. He notes
that the president has traveled
the country touting the spending
increases that have occurred in
VAs budget during his presi-
Spending for VA medical care
has nearly doubled in less than
a decade, from $28.8 billion in
2006 to $56 billion last year
"They can't even spend the
money that we appropriated to
them. If money could have
solved this problem, it would

have been solved a long time
ago," Miller said. "It is manipu-
lation and mismanagement that
has created the crisis that exists
Miller, who became chairman
of the House Committee on Vet-
erans Affairs in 2011, makes the
case that the investigations that
have been undertaken by the
VAs inspector general and the
Government Accountability Of-
fice were generally conducted at
the request of members of Con-
gress. When he has sought to fol-
low up about whether the VA
was meeting investigators' rec-
ommendations, Miller said he
has been stonewalled.
The committee has had an ac-
rimonious relationship with VA
leadership and even developed
a section on its website called
"Trials in Transparency" that
list some of the more than 100
requests for information made
by the committee that it says are
still outstanding.

The problems in Phoenix,
Miller said, came to light be-
cause of his committee's work
with a whistleblower that VA
would not pay attention to, Dr
Samuel Foote, who retired after
spending nearly 25 years with
the department
Foote said up to 40 veterans
may have died while awaiting
treatment at the Phoenix hospi-
tal and that staff, at the instruc-
tion of administrators, kept a
secret list of patients waiting for
appointments to hide delays in
care. He believes administrators
kept the off-the-books list to im-
press their bosses and get
bonuses. The IG said that while
its work was not complete, it had
substantiated significant delays
in access that negatively im-
pacted the quality of care at the
Phoenix hospital. The IG has not
substantiated whether any vet-
erans in Phoenix died due to a
delay in treatment.
But it's clear that media

As the investigations un-
fold, The Associated Press
reached out to veterans in
Arizona and several other
states to recount their ex-
periences with VA medical
care. Some described de-
lays and oversights. Others
said they were pleased
with their care.
The ongoing investiga-
tions are currently focused
on scheduling, delays in
care and allegations that
VA managers instructed
employees to falsify
records. But independent
reports dating back a
decade have found that,
while access is a problem,
VA care has consistently
been equal to or better
than that in the private
Here is what some vet-
erans had to say:
Vietnam veteran Dan
Dominey has been in pain
for months because, he
said, the VA hospital in
Phoenix delayed his care.
The 66-year-old former
Marine fell and broke his
back in December
Dominey, of Mesa, Ari-
zona, said he had been
using the VA for health care
for about eight years, and

he thought the service had
been fine. But he never suf-
fered any serious injuries
or illnesses until now
"They've never been
quick about getting me an
appointment. But then
again, I never needed any-
thing right away until this
back situation happened,"
Dominey said.
At first, the self-
employed welder didn't
know how serious the in-
jury was, so he kept work-
ing, suffering through the
He finally went to the VA
hospital in Phoenix in Jan-
uary, about a month after
the accident.
At the clinic, VA doctors
first performed X-rays,
then weeks later an MRI,
and nearly a month later a
bone scan.
Dominey said he was
eventually referred mis-
takenly by the VA to a pri-
vate neurologist, and he
finally got an appointment
with an outside neurosur-
geon. By the time the VA
had scheduled him for sur-
gery, it was already mid-
May, nearly six months
after the injury
What Dominey heard
next was disheartening.
He said the doctor shook
his head in frustration and
told him the procedure
likely wouldn't work now
because it had been too

long since the injury
The wound should heal
on its own, he was told, but
it could be another year
with constant pain and
"I could have avoided
months of pain," Dominey
Thales Elliott has relied
on VA medical care since
he lost both his legs in
Vietnam. After 46 years,
Elliott has no complaints
about his treatment.
"I wouldn't bad-mouth
them because they've
taken good care of me,"
said Elliott, 79, of Augusta,
Georgia, who serves as
commander of a local
chapter of the group Dis-
abled American Veterans.
Elliott was serving in the
Army in Vietnam when a
fellow soldier triggered an
exploding booby trap that
shredded both of Elliott's
legs. After coming home,
he was fitted with pros-
thetic legs and learned to
walk again using a cane.
Decades later, he still
drives a car and is inde-
pendent enough to live
Elliott said the only in-
convenience he has en-
countered with the VA was
two years ago when he
went to the emergency
room with a sharp pain in
his midsection. An X-ray

turned up nothing, so doc-
tors gave him some medi-
cine and sent him home.
But he remained in too
much pain to lie down or
sit up. The next day, he got
to see his primary care
doctor, who discovered El-
liott had a kidney stone.
"Other than that, I
haven't had any problem
with them," he said. "I get
my medicine, and I see a
doctor once or twice a
Veteran Justin Grimes
has had nightmares almost
daily since 2006 after he
returned from fighting in
Iraq. The retired sergeant
from Nashville, Ten-
nessee, who served in both
the Army and Marine
Corps said he has spent
two years wading through
paperwork and red tape
and still has not been able
to make an appointment
online to see a psycholo-
gist or sleep specialist with
the VA
Grimes, who said he
does not know if he has
missed a step in the
process, he has been un-
able to take time from
work to go into a VA hospi-
tal and spend the day wait-
ing to see someone in
person about getting an
"It's very frustrating,
and with everything going

on in the VA, I don't have
much faith in them right
now," he said.
His father paid for a pri-
vate psychologist. But
Grimes said he didn't see
immediate results and
could not afford to keep
Grimes, 33, said he had
to quit his accounting job
because of exhaustion and
frustration. He recently
moved from Nashville to
Valley Center, California,
north of San Diego, where
he works as a manager at
Archi's Acres, an organic
farm and training center
for veterans.
He said the physical ex-
ertion of running the farm
helps ease his anxiety, but
he still suffers from insom-
nia and hopes to get
help from eye-movement
therapies and other
"I'm sure if I was bleed-
ing out, the ER would see
me right away But it's frus-
trating to try to get care for
other things, and it's hard
to get care for mental
health," Grimes said.
When Joseph Shaffer
was transferred to the VAs
Denver hospital after 28
days at a private facility
following a major stroke in
2012, his wife, Valerie, was
"You hear a lot of people

complain" about VA care,
Valerie Shaffer said. "But,
for the most part, I could-
n't be happier"
The nurses and doctors
were caring and attentive
during the three months
Shaffer spent hospitalized.
"They took super care of
him in the ICU," she said.
Before he was released,
nurses visited their house
to make sure they had
equipment to make the
home accessible for
Joseph's more limited
Joseph Shaffer, a 60-
year-old Vietnam veteran,
still can't speak. But his
wife said that his return
visits to the VA for therapy
and checkups are full of
"He's such a flirt. He
needs 10 hugs before he
gets out of there," she said.
Valerie Shaffer is the of-
fice manager at the Col-
orado state office of
Veterans of Foreign Wars
and said that veterans she
refers to the VAs Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder
program are universally
happy with it.
However, she said it can
be difficult to get a new ap-
pointment at the VA.
She and her husband
are growing tired of being
directed to the emergency
room to deal with new
problems that arise.

reports citing a specific number
of 40 veteran deaths gave a
human element to the story that
triggered greater urgency from
the public, veterans groups and
In a matter of weeks, the
American Legion went from
being a strong supporter of Shin-
seki to asking for his resignation.
"For some reason, something
triggered the media's appetite
for this story when we've been
asking VA to participate and give
us information. I don't know if it
was the number of 40 veterans,"
Miller said.
As he gave his final speech as
VA secretary, Shinseki acknowl-
edged that he once viewed the
department's problems concern-
ing wait times as limited.
"I no longer believe it. It is sys-
temic. I was too trusting of some,
and I accepted, as accurate, re-
ports that I now know to have
been misleading with regard to
patient wait times," he said.

Judge: Jodi Arias
can still face
death penalty
PHOENIX--Ajudge de-
nied a motion from Jodi Arias'
defense team this week to
have the death penalty re-
moved as a sentencing op-
tion for the woman whose
murder trial became an inter-
national sensation.
Arias' attorneys argued that
banning a defense aide from
making jail visits last March
affected the aide's relation-
ship with the entire defense
team and her ability to pre-
pare for Arias' new punish-
ment trial in September.
Maricopa County sheriff's
officials said mitigation spe-
cialist Maria De La Rosa
was banned for a week
after she took a drawing by
Arias out of the jail.
Arias, 33, was convicted
of first-degree murder last
year in the 2008 killing of
her lover, but jurors couldn't
reach a decision on sen-
tencing. The case captured
headlines worldwide and
became a cable television
staple with its tales of sex,
lies and a brutal killing.

Amanda Skorjanc, left, and Natasha Huestis embrace Saturday at a memorial to the mudslide victims in Oso,
Wash. Huestis lost her daughter, Sanoah Violet Huestis, and her mother, Christina Jefferds, in the mudslide.
Skorjanc and her infant son survived but had been critically injured. A little more than two months after their
neighborhood was destroyed and 43 people killed, the highway through the heart of the slide reopened to
vehicle traffic.

New drugs making a dent

in lung, ovarian cancer

Associated Press

CHICAGO New drugs are mak-
ing a dent against some hard-to-treat
cancers, but some results raise fresh
questions about whether the benefit
is worth the cost.
For the first time in a decade, an
experimental drug has extended the
lives of patients with advanced lung
cancer who relapsed after standard
chemotherapy But the drug used in
the study gave patients just six extra
weeks of life on average, and costs
$6,000 per infusion as currently sold
to treat a different form of cancer
Eli Lilly and Co.'s drug, Cryamza,
was discussed Saturday at a cancer
conference in Chicago, where other
studies showed:
The drug Imbruvica, sold by
Pharmacyclics Inc. and Janssen
Biotech, substantially improved sur-
vival and could set a new standard
of care for relapsed chronic lym-
phocytic leukemia, or CLL, the most
common leukemia in adults. Doctors
say the pill more precisely targets
cancer and is a good option for older
people who can't tolerate standard
chemotherapy infusions.
Two experimental pills from As-
traZeneca PLC worked much better
than one alone against ovarian cancer
that resisted or came back after stan-
dard chemo. The drugs significantly
prolonged the time women lived with-
out their disease worsening.
Cyramza is sold now to treat stom-
ach cancer and fights the formation
of blood vessels that feed tumors.
French researchers led a study with
1,253 patients who relapsed after
initial treatment of advanced lung
cancer, a more common disease.
All were given the chemo drug

Associated Press
An infusion drug to treat cancer is
administered in September 2013 to a
cancer patient at Duke Cancer
Center in Durham, N.C. According to
a study that was discussed Saturday
at a cancer conference in Chicago,
Eli Lilly and Co.'s experimental drug
Cyramza has extended the life of
patients with advanced lung cancer
who relapsed after standard
docetaxel and half also received
Cyramza infusions every three
weeks. Median overall survival was
10.5 months for those on the combo
and 9 months for the others; there
were significantly more side effects
with the combo.
The value of another expensive
drug seemed clearer, doctors said.
Imbruvica won approval earlier this
year for treating chronic lympho-
cytic leukemia based on a small

study that found it delayed the time
until the disease got worse.
Ohio State University's Dr John C.
Byrd led a more definitive study in
nearly 400 patients who did not re-
spond or had a relapse after standard
chemo. They were given Imbruvica or
Arzerra, a GlaxoSmithKline drug
often used in such cases.
One-year survival was 90 percent
for those on Imbruvica and 81 per-
cent for those originally assigned to
get Arzerra. Imbruvica also reduced
the chances of the disease getting
worse by 78 percent.
Ovarian cancer usually is treated
with surgery and chemo but about
80 percent of patients relapse, said
Dr. Joyce Liu of the Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute in Boston.
She led a federally funded study
of 90 such women to test cediranib, a
drug that blocks tumor blood vessel
formation, plus olaparib, part of a
new class of experimental drugs
called PARP inhibitors, which keep
cancer cells from repairing damage
to their DNA
The ovarian cancer study was the
first time these two drugs had been
tested together The combo delayed
by more than eight months the time
it took for the disease to get worse
compared to olaparib alone.
It's too soon to know whether the
combo will prolong survival; partic-
ipants are still being tracked.
Cediranib seemed headed for the
scrap heap after failing studies on
lung and colon cancer, but this is the
second study to suggest it works
against ovarian cancer AstraZeneca
said it may seek the drug's approval
for ovarian cancer later this year
The price of either drug has not
been set.

Saturday in the gang rape
and slaying of two teenage
cousins found hanging from
a tree in northern India, as
a top state official said he
was recommending a fed-

case that has triggered na-
tional outrage.
The three suspects de-
tained in the attack in Uttar
Pradesh state are cousins
in their 20s from an ex-
tended family, and they face
murder and rape charges,
crimes punishable by the
death penalty, said police
officer N. Malik. Two other
suspects from the same vil-
lage are also being sought,
he said.
Facing growing criticism
for a series of rapes, au-
thorities in Uttar Pradesh,
which has a long-standing
reputation for lawlessness,
also arrested two police offi-
cers and fired two others
Friday for failing to investi-

woman who refused to re-

Cameron said the treat-

Ibrahim "is barbaric and has
no place in today's world."
Blair described the case as
a "brutal and sickening dis-
tortion of faith."
Cameron told Saturday's

per that the British govern-
ment was pressing Sudan to
annul the sentence.
Ibrahim, whose father was
Muslim but who was raised
by her Christian mother, was
convicted of apostasy for
marrying a Christian and
sentenced to hang.

Summertime means barbecues, picnics and long, hot days. Here on the Nature
Coast, it also means plenty of splashing in cold, clear springs and paddling a river
in a canoe or kayak. Here are three summer adventures you won't want to miss
out on this season.

Tube down the Rainbow River
Tubing is a timeless summer activ-
ity that's almost a rite of passage for
people living in Florida. Whether
you're a kid or just young at heart, a
float down the cool, clear Rainbow
River is a perfect way to escape the
heat while enjoying the outdoors. Ex-
pect to see turtles, fish, birds and
other wildlife as you move with the
current on two- or four-hour float

down the river
There are a few options for tubing
the Rainbow River You can go it alone
and bring your own tube, which will
save you a few bucks, but a much eas-
ier option is renting a tube from the
Rainbow Springs State Park conces-
sionaire (a two-hour float) or from the
KP Hole park (four-hour float) for a
small fee and catching a shuttle to the
launch point or from the tubing exit
back to the park when you're finished.

The tubing entrance at Rainbow
Springs State Park is at 10830 South-
west 180th Avenue Road. K.P Hole is
at 9435 S.W 190 Avenue Road.
Check the parks' websites for tub-
ing guidelines and rules. Visit
http://wwwrainbowspringspark. com
for more information on tubing with
the state park and
for more about KP Hole.

Honest, maybe,

but still sexist

D ear Annie: I had
to respond to
"Not a Prude"
and "Another Woman
Speaking Out," who said
they are disgusted with
the appearance of fe-
males on national news
programs wearing low-
cut blouses and short
dresses. All of my male
friends and I have our
own opinion on this sub-
There is
nothing more
attractive and
sexy than a
smart, knowl-
edgeable pro-
female in
today's busi-
ness environ-
ment. If that
female hap-
pens to be ANN
good-looking MAIL
with a nice ___
figure and
great legs, it is an asset
she needs to use.
I suspect most of us
guys would not watch a
news program if the
women, regardless of
their abilities, were fat
and ugly or wore only
long pants and suit jack-
ets. That's just the way it
is. Bob in North Car-
Dear Bob: Well, we
give you points for hon-
esty, but your attitude is
the very definition of
sexist Women in the
media are role models


for young girls and
should look professional
-just like the men. Pre-
ferring a newscast that
presents women as sex
symbols indicates a
mindset that hasn't
evolved since the 1950s.
Women have spent
decades trying to banish
such old-fashioned
thinking. Today's parents
would not appreciate
others judging
their daugh-
ters' profes-
capabilities by
whether they
also are eye
candy The fact
that some
women are
willing to de-
base them-
selves in order
E'S to be hired and
admired by
B X men like you
does not make
it appropriate or accept-
able and only under-
scores the pressure
many women still feel to
conform to such out-
dated attitudes.

reluctance in ..............
F red Sim onson's iiiii ... ..,ii. .iiiiiiiii ............

JL response when
asked what he did duri ng
his time in the
U.S. Navy during
World War II. His
reason: He wants
people to know
about the branch of
the Navy he served in
- the Armed Guard,
rather than his own
personal involvement.
Only after explaining that both c.1 n
be achieved, and that the best way to
do this would be through his recount-
ing of what he personally experien: ed.
was he convinced. His insistence v .,
hardly unusual; most veterans inter-
viewed express a similar sentiment
So who were the Armed Guard? The
U.S. Navy Armed Guard, first estab-
lished during World War I, was re-
formed after the outbreak of World
War II to combat the threat of Ger-
many's attack on the U.S. merchant
fleet. German U-boats were a constant
threat for the slow-moving Liberty
Ships, whose supplies were vital for
both Great Britain and the
Soviet Union.

Like so many others, Simonson opted
to join the Navy.
"If I joined the Army, who knows where
I'd be and what I'd be doing, in a foxhole
somewhere, in the rain and the snow and
the mud and the ice," the native of Dun-
more, Pennsylvania, said." So, I joined
the Navy."
Following 13 weeks of boot camp, Si-
monson was assigned to the Navy's
Armed Guard. This was hazardous duty;
German U-boats and aircraft were a con-
stant threat to supply convoys which em-
barked from U.S. ports bound for
England and Russia.
Simonson was trained at the Armed
Guard Gunnery School in Little Creek,
Virginia; his first assignment was aboard
a tanker, the SS Penote. Later he would
serve on Liberty ships, the SS William
Paca and the SS Edward Canby, making
countless runs to ports in England as well
as North Africa and through the Mediter-
ranean Sea and Red Sea en route to the
Persian Gulf.
"We sailed the North Atlantic, the
South Atlantic, the Mediterranean, we
went to Iceland," Simonson recalled.
He was one of nearly 145,000 men who
served with the U.S. Armed Guard in
World War II, initially manning the guns
on merchant ships. The typical Armed
Guard contingent aboard a Liberty-type
ship was 28, with one officer They would
man two anti-aircraft machine gun bat-
teries and a three-inch or five-inch deck
gun. Armed Guard personnel were re-
quired to be adept at handling all the
weapons aboard a ship, in all types of

The true whine connoisseurs


The Porters

e all complain about air travel the size of
the seats, the delays, the jet lag, the turbu-
lence, the crying babies, the other passen-
gers, paying through the nose for luggage I could
go on and on (and often do). But for all our complain-
ing, we can get from New York to L.A., door-to-door,
in 10 or 12 hours. Half a day
It took Lewis and Clark two years to go from St.
Louis to the Pacific. And that was after two years of
preparation. Their clothes rotted on their bodies. It
took wagon trains months to go from Nebraska to
Oregon and many people died along the way Yet we
complain about the peanuts they give us on a long
flight, like if we go without food for four hours, we
may start eating the sleeping passengers next to us.
Yes, air travel has become a soul-sucking, body-
numbing experience, but compared to the long his-
tory of human experience, or even compared to 50
years ago, we have it sooooo good.
I saw a 100-year-old aerial picture of a nearby town
recently and I was surprised by how little had
changed; most of the buildings and roads were still
familiar, and the downtown was completely recogniz-
able. Then I noticed that in the back yard of almost
every house stood a tiny white building an out-
house. That may sound charming and rustic to some
of you, but not if you live in a place with a real winter
As a kid in Nebraska, I used to hear stories about
people who went out to use the necessary during the
middle of a blizzard and were never seen again. Of
course, if they were from my family, I don't think any-
one looked for them very hard or very long.
We all complain about things that, not so very long
ago, would have been seen as near miracles. Ever
tapped your foot while waiting in line at the grocery
store? "Oh, why is she writing a check in the express
lane?" 'All day long, and as soon as I get in line they
have to change the register tape?"
How indignant we get, forgetting that not so very
long ago, if you didn't plant it, weed it, water it and
harvest it, you didn't eat it. Where would you have



gotten a banana 200 years ago? A pineapple? A
macadamia nut? Who had a refrigerator to put their
groceries in 100 years ago, or a freezer?
Things we take for granted dandruff shampoo,
indoor plumbing, air conditioning, satellite radio,
smart phones, credit cards, cable TV, microwave
ovens, the Internet are all life-changers that many
of us would find it hard to live without. We have it so
good, and we still find so many things to whine about.
I heard a friend whining about empty handicapped
parking spots in front of the mall a few days ago, and
it was so bizarre, it was funny He was acting as if
being disabled was a privilege, a dream come true
because it meant they got great parking spots. I won-
der what limb he'd like to lose or disease he'd like to
have that would make that an even trade. How many
times have you heard yourself say, "57 channels and
nothing ofn" instead of saying, "I'm so lucky to have a
TV to be able to know what's going on in Russia and
Egypt the minute it happens" or "I'm so lucky to be
able to see shows I liked over and over again."
We complain so easily, so thoughtlessly over the
smallest slights and inconveniences that it must be
deep in our nature to complain. It must give us some
kind of satisfaction and pleasure or we wouldn't do it
so much, or so often.
The bottom line is that flying isn't fun, but com-
plaining about it is.

George Groves lands a punch on
Carl Froch on Saturday during
their IBF and WBA World Super
Middleweight title fight at
Wembley Stadium in London.
Froch beats Groves,
retains WBA, IBF titles
LONDON Carl Froch
knocked out British rival George
Groves in the eighth round to
retain his WBAand IBF super-
middleweight titles in a rematch
in front of 80,000 fans at Wem-
bley Stadium on Saturday.
Froch floored Groves with a
huge right hook with about 30
seconds remaining in the
round, with the referee immedi-
ately stopping one of most
hyped fights in the country's
boxing history. He improved to
33-2, with 24 knockouts.
"This is the greatest moment
of my boxing career," Froch said.
Groves (19-2, 15 KOs) had
started slower but grew into the
fight, only to be knocked down
with Froch's biggest punch of
the bout.
"I feel like I let myself down,"
said Groves, who had vowed to
send Froch into retirement with
a victory. "Fair play, he got me
with the punch."
Froch dominated the center
of the ring but only first con-
nected with a left hand in the
third round that rocked Groves.
Froch's punches were gener-
ally ragged, and he walked into
some punches by Groves in
the sixth and seventh rounds.
The ending was conclusive,
though, with Froch swinging ini-
tially with his left and following it
up with a massive right that left
Groves in a heap on the canvas.

Spring football saw the intro-
duction of five new offenses
and four new head coaches
between area schools. That
much change was bound to
yield uneven performances, yet most
teams exceeded expectations. Here are
three things we learned from each
team's spring football exhibitions.
Citrus Hurricanes (9-2 in 2013, lost
28-20 to Clearwater Countryside)
With Desmond Franklin now at
quarterback and his cousin Sam
Franklin outmatching opposing defen-
sive backs, we can expect plenty of big-
strike capabilities from the Citrus
offense in the fall. Desmond Franklin,
fighting a bad ankle, finished 7 for 13
passing for 158 yards against Country-
side, and ran for a 65-yard score off an

option keeper Sam Franklin hauled in
five balls, including a 30-yard touchdown
pass in the waning minutes of the open-
ing quarter
The Hurricanes have a returning
pair of talented backs in John Bronson
and Breon Whaley, but will have to wait
for a healthier offensive line to see how
well they can replace backs like James
Pouncey, Tyric Washington and Javian
Clark. CHS managed just 75 rushing
yards from its running backs, with 23 of
those coming on Bronson's final pair of
The 'Canes' defense proved it can
still deliver blows and stuff the run, even
while shorthanded, but it was vulnerable
against a sharp Cougar passing attack that

Crystal River Pirates (3-7 in 2013, beat
Hernando 28-3)
With nine of its 11 starters back,
Crystal River's offense is poised for big
improvements under new offensive co-
ordinator Tony Branch and his
Delaware Wing-T system. Head coach
Nathan Varnadore hopes it can help
take pressure off his defense, like it did
on a 10-play, 75-yard scoring drive
capped off by a 31-yard rushing TD by
Khyrel Harvey in the opening quarter
against Hernando.
Though the Pirates ran away with a
25-point win, Varnadore was frustrated
with his team's mental errors and vari-
ous self-inflicted wounds.

Kyle Busch 2-for-2 at Dover

with Nationwide win

Associated Press

DOVER, Del. Kyle Busch
heard the critics who said he was
too good, too dominant, too
loaded with the best equipment
to keep dropping down levels
and routinely romping his way
toward victories.
His response from Victory
Lane? "Too bad,"
Busch raced to his second vic-
tory of the weekend at Dover, tak-
ing the checkered flag Saturday
in the Nationwide Series race to
set himself up for a tripleheader
"I do it for the pure love of
the sport and just wanting to be
out there," Busch said. "I'll keep
doing it as long as we can do it."
Busch followed his dominant
win Friday night in the Truck Se-
ries with another stellar run in
Nationwide. He led 124 of 200
laps for his 66th career victory in
NASCAR's second-tier series. He
has 134 wins spread over
NASCAR's three major series,
though he has yet to win a Cup
championship or marquee races
such as the Daytona 500, Brick-
yard 400, Coca-Cola 600 or All-
Star race.
"I've got a 134 of 'em now and
none of them mean nothing,"
Busch said. "Hopefully, someday,
the big ones come."
Busch had a three-race sweep
in 2010 at Bristol, which he called

the green flag dropped, Busch

Watson takes a one-shot lead at Memorial

Associated Press

DUBLIN, Ohio -
Bubba Watson has been
coming to Muirfield
Village ever since his
rookie year on the PGA
Tour Nine years later, he
might have finally figured
it out.
He had only five rounds
in the 60s in his previous
eight trips. Even with a
bogey on his final hole
Saturday, he had a
3-under 69 for his third
straight round in the 60s
this week. Watson is
11 under on the par 5s.
He walked off the
course with a one-shot
lead over Scott Langley in
the Memorial. Not bad for
a guy who has never fin-
ished better than a tie for
"It's all about maturity,"
Watson said. "Thinking
around the golf course a
lot better it's my ninth
year on tour, so better
thinking on the golf course
is creating better shots.
Hitting a lot more greens.
Hitting a lot more
fairways. Putting a little
better this year When you
add all that up, it turns
into better scores.
Watson was at 12-under
204 and in position for his
third win of the year
"I have a shot," Watson
said. "I'd like the same
score tomorrow and let
the boys beat me if they
can beat me."
Plenty of them should
have a chance. With a
bogey on the final hole,
Watson's lead shrunk to
one shot over Langley,
who had a 67 to make it an
all-southpaw final pairing
Sunday Langley has not
been in the final group
since his rookie debut two
years ago in Honolulu.
The most famous Lefty,
Phil Mickelson, had a 72
and was 10 shots out of
the lead while coping
with reports he is in-
volved in a federal inves-
tigation of insider
trading. Mickelson con-

first round this week.
Otherwise, he went about
his business on the golf
"It's not going to change
the way I carry myself,"
Mickelson said. "Honestly,
I've done nothing wrong.
I'm not going to walk
around any other way"
Hideki Matsuyama of
Japan made birdie on his
last hole for a 69 and was
two shots behind. Adam
Scott, the No. 1 player in
the world and coming off a
win at the Colonial last
week, made eagle on the
15th that sparked another
surge up the leaderboard.
With a bogey on the last
hole, he had a 68 and still
was only three shots
"It's going to be tough,"
Scott said about his
three-shot deficit to the
Masters champion. "He's
playing great this year,
and I just have to post a
number I'm in a good po-
sition where I can possibly

The 36-hole leader had
a tough enough time. Paul
Casey, who started Satur-
day with a three-shot lead.
That was gone in three
holes when Watson made
a pair of birdies, and
Casey missed more than

his share of putts that

ended with a double
bogey for a 76. He still was
in range, however, part of
a large group at 8-under
208 that included Jordan
Spieth (67), Charl
Schwartzel (67) and Byron
Nelson winner Brendon

ing birdie chances of 7

3 1/2 feet on the 14th hole,
a chance to build some
But he rolled in a 12-
foot birdie on the 15th and
was back in control until
the 18th. Watson pulled
his approach well right of
the green, and his chip
ran through the green and
into the fringe against the
collar. Using a fairway
metal to chip, it appeared
that the club moved his
ball before the stroke,

though Watson says he
didn't touch it and
television replays made it
clear that the ball didn't
leave its position.
Langley doesn't hit the
ball as long as Watson. His
game is about efficiency
and control, and he has
shown that by taking a
streak of 40 straight holes
without a bogey into the
final round. Much like
Watson, he saw the simple
pleasures of a round at
Muirfield Village.
"Any time you shoot in
the 60s here, pretty happy
about it," Langley said.
"Tough place."
Langley grew up in the
Midwest and went to
school at Illinois. He has
played plenty in the
Columbus area in college
and says he "never
cracked an egg" whether
he was at the Scarlett
Course at Ohio State or
Scioto. The good news for
Langley? Muirfield
Village is in Dublin.

Former FIFA exec

accused of corruption

in World Cup vote

Associated Press

LONDON -A former member ofFIFAs exec-
utive committee was accused Sunday of making
payments totaling $5 million to senior football of-
ficials in return for support for Qatar's success-
ful bid for the 2022 World Cup.
British newspaper The Sunday Times said it
has obtained millions of secret documents prov-
ing that Mohamed Bin Hammam, a Qatari who
used to be FIFA vice president, was lobbying on
his country's behalf ahead of the vote in Decem-
ber 2010.
Under a front-page headline of "Plot to buy the
World Cup," the newspaper alleged that Bin
Hammam made dozens of payments to top foot-
ball officials in Africa as well as Reynald Temarii
and Jack Warner, the former FIFA executive
committee members for Oceania and CONCACAEF
The allegations come less than two weeks be-
fore the start of the World Cup in Brazil and bring
fresh scrutiny on the 2010 vote, which awarded
football's biggest tournament to the tiny desert
state and currently is under investigation by
FIFAs independent ethics prosecutor
The Sunday Times said that Bin Hamman de-
clined to respond to the allegations and that
members of Qatar's bid committee denied any
link to the former FIFA official, saying he played
no secret role in their campaign.
Qatari organizers did not immediately respond
to The Associated Press' request for comment.
Bin Hammam, one of the most controversial
figures in FIFAs recent history, is no longer a
committee member of world football's governing
body after being caught up in a corruption scan-
dal surrounding his failed campaign for its pres-
idency in 2011.
The Sunday Times is alleging, however, that he
exploited his position at the heart of FIFA when
he was an executive committee member to help
to secure votes from key members of its 24-man
ruling committee that helped Qatar win the right
to host the World Cup. Qatar defeated bids from the
United States, Japan, South Korea and Australia.

"Defensively, we were misaligned a lot," Var-
nadore said, "and stupid penalties let Hernando
get down there and kick a field goal. And there
were a couple times on offense where our biggest
enemy was the turf monster, where guys were
tripping in open space."
With three sacks and two forced fumbles, a
lighter Jacob Lafleur showed himself as a new
catalyst on defense at defensive end and middle
"Lafleur showed up to play and took it to a new
level," Varnadore said, "and the kids fed offhis play"
Lecanto Panthers (2-8 in 2013, varsity lost 21-0
in three quarters against Lake Minneola)
New Lecanto head coach Greg Harper said
his team's lack of conditioning limited its per-
formance against Lake Minneola, especially late
in the game, but he expects it to improve in the fall.
"That was on me," he said. "I told the kids this
spring wasn't going to be about conditioning, it
was going to be about putting in our base offense
and defense, and we accomplished that. I liked
the way the kids worked over the spring."
Harper was encouraged by the play of up-
and-comers James Luciana, Antonio Crumbley
and Peter Forges. Luciana was frequently in on
plays from his linebacker position, while Crum-
bley, at cornerback and tailback, and Forges, a
linebacker and tailback, stood out on both sides
of the ball in the spring.
Like many of the teams, the Panthers need to
get more proficient and healthier at run-
ning their new base systems before we can ex-
pect to see a more comprehensive offering from
their respective units.
"There's still a lot of stuff for the guys to learn
before we move on to the stuff the kids probably
refer to as the more-fin stuff," Harper said. "I didn't
expect us to be hitting all cylinders in the spring."
Seven Rivers Christian Warriors (0-9 in 2013,
beat Citrus Park Christian School 59-13)
One year after losing all nine of its games by
an average of 40 points, Seven Rivers Christian
could be competing for a conference title this
fall. Behind 204 rushing yards and four TDs from
Nate Winstead, the Warriors surpassed its total
scoring output from 2013 by 21 points in a 46-
point blowout of Tampa's Citrus Park Christian.
Though facing inherent roster limitations,
head coach Rayburn Greene isn't compromising
his program's demands, and is counting on his
team's endurance for an edge.
"We didn't water our stuff down at practice,
and the kids responded and hung in there. They
played a very physical brand of football in the
game," he said. "I'm not going to compromise
what we do in order to have a few more kids."
While Greene didn't have the available
pieces to install his double-wing offense, his
team's clean execution (no fumbled exchanges)
of its no-huddle I-formation helped yield more
than 400 yards on the ground.
Dunnellon Tigers (6-4 in 2013, beat Starke
Bradford 21-0 in first half, lost 9-6 to Newberry
in second)
Dunnellon's new spread no-huddle offense
under Coach Price Harris could be a boon for
senior-to-be Kane Parks and running back Josh
Williams. Parks totaled 198 receiving yards and

four TDs, while Williams, a sophomore in the
fall, chipped in 75 yards on just five carries in the
jamboree against Newberry and Bradford.
Last year's leading Tiger tacklers, lineback-
ers Cole Fagan and Zahid Hujurat appear poised
to lead the defense in the fall after the departure
of Keiwan Jones. Hujurat recorded a team-high
nine tackles in the spring exhibition, while
Fagan added seven and a sack.
The Tigers figure to be better in the air than
in recent years, as its passing attack was good for
285 yards.
"We've still got to be better up front," Harris said,
"and we had a couple of blown assignments. The
quarterbacks did a really good job that was part
of the reason we were so successful. It was a good
spring- a lot of tough kids with a lot of charac-
ter When you have that, you can be successful."

Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts starts to slide as Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Sean Rodriguez
gets the throw on Bogaerts' double Saturday in the first inning in Boston.

After three, Sox eye sweep of Rays

Associated Press

BOSTON Rubby De La Rosa
pitched seven shutout innings in
his first big league start in nearly
three years, Brock Holt hit his first
career homer and the Boston Red
Sox won their sixth straight with a
7-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.
The teams kept it clean a day
after having their second benches-
clearing scrum in less than a week.
Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr each
hit two-run homers, and Jonathan
Herrera had three singles as the
Red Sox continued to rebound from
a recent 10-game losing streak.
De La Rosa (1-0), recalled ear-
lier in the day from Triple-A Paw-
tucket, made his first start for the
Red Sox.


Yankees 3, Twins 1
NEW YORK Masahiro Tanaka
shut down Joe Mauer and the other
Minnesota hitters while lowering his
AL-leading ERA to 2.06, and Brian
McCann lined a go-ahead double in
the eighth inning that sent the New
York Yankees over the Twins 3-1.
Tanaka (8-1) permitted only an un-
earned run in eight innings. The her-
alded rookie from Japan gave up four
singles, just two leaving the infield.
Tanaka walked two and bounced
two wild pitches. But he was espe-
cially sharp against Mauer, the three-
time AL batting champion.
Mauer, who faced Tanaka in spring
training, struck out on three pitches in
the first inning with a runner on third.
Mauer fanned on four pitches with
runners on second and third in the
third, then tapped into a double play
and later grounded out.
Yankees first baseman Mark Teix-
eira left in the sixth because of sore-
ness in his surgically repaired right
wrist, the same problem that forced
him to miss three games this week.

Blue Jays 12, Royals 2
TORONTO Juan Francisco had
three hits and four RBIs, Marcus Stro-
man won his first career start and the
Toronto Blue Jays used a seven-run
first inning to rout the Kansas City
Royals 12-2.
Adam Lind went 3 for 5 with three
RBIs as the AL East-leading Blue Jays
snapped a two-game losing streak
and finished May with a record of 21-9.
Toronto has won 15 of its past 19.
Stroman (2-0) allowed one run and
five hits in six innings. The right-han-
der walked none and struck out six.
Todd Redmond worked the final
three innings for his first save.
The Blue Jays gave Stroman all the
support he would need with a 12-batter
first inning against Royals right-hander
Aaron Brooks, who was also making
his first career start. Toronto set a
team record when the first eight bat-
ters reached safely against Brooks.

Orioles 4, Astros 1
HOUSTON Nelson Cruz hit his
major league-leading 20th home run
and drove in three runs to back a solid
start by Chris Tillman, and the Baltimore
Orioles snapped a four-game skid with
a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros.
Tillman (5-2) allowed one run on
four hits over 6 2/3 innings to bounce
back after allowing 14 runs combined in
his last two starts. Zach Britton pitched
a scoreless ninth for his fourth save.

Nationals 10, Rangers 2
WASHINGTON -Anthony Rendon
went 4 for 5 and hit one of four Wash-
ington home runs, and Doug Fister al-
lowed four hits in six innings as the
Washington Nationals routed the
Texas Rangers 10-2.
Adam LaRoche, Jose Lobaton, and
pinch-hitter Scott Hairston also home-
red in Washington's offensive surge.
The Nationals have racked up 24
runs and 42 hits in their last three games.

Padres 4, White Sox 2
CHICAGO Will Venable had a
season-high four hits and drove in two
runs to help the San Diego Padres
beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2.
Tyson Ross (6-4) limited the White
Sox to two runs on five hits in six innings,
and Huston Street remained perfect in
17 save chances this season.
San Diego improved to 20-4 this
season when scoring four or more runs.
Indians 7, Rockies 6
CLEVELAND Mike Aviles hit a
three-run homer in the second and
added the go-ahead single in the
eighth inning to help the Cleveland In-
dians beat the Colorado Rockies 7-6.
Bryan Shaw (2-1) pitched 1 2/3
scoreless innings. Cody Allen worked
the ninth for his third save as the Rock-
ies fell to 2-6 on their nine-game trip.


Cardinals 2, Giants 0
ST. LOUIS Michael Wacha
worked six innings of three-hit ball in
his fifth rain-delayed start of the sea-
son and Oscar Taveras homered in
his second career at-bat for the St.
Louis Cardinals in a 2-0 victory over
the San Francisco Giants.
Yusmeiro Petit (3-3) gave up two
hits in six innings for the Giants, but
one of them was Taveras' 418-foot
drive in the fifth. Petit subbed for in-
jured Matt Cain, placed on the 15-day
disabled list with a hamstring injury, for
the second straight start.
The Cardinals have piled up 6 hours,
30 minutes of idle time in Wacha's
starts, with delays of 51 and 47 min-
utes Saturday.

Cubs 8, Brewers 0
MILWAUKEE -Anthony Rizzo hit
two two-run homers and Jason Ham-
mel tossed seven strong innings, lift-
ing the Chicago Cubs to an 8-0 victory
over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Both of Rizzo's homers came on full-
count pitches and went deep to right,
the second one into the second deck to
give the Cubs a four-run lead in the sixth.
It was more than enough support
for Hammel (6-3), who frustrated the
Brewers by mixing a fastball in the low
90s with a tough slider. He allowed
just four hits while striking out a sea-
son-high eight.
The Cubs chased Brewers starter
Wily Peralta (4-5) in the five-run sixth
that started with a single from Hammel,
who later scored on Rizzo's homer.

Braves 9, Marlins 5
MIAMI Jason Heyward and
Freddie Freeman each drove in a pair
of runs to help lead the Atlanta Braves
to a 9-5 win over the Miami Marlins.
Ervin Santana (5-2) won for the first
time since May 10 against the Cubs
as he allowed three runs and seven
hits in six innings. He struck out four.
Craig Kimbrel got the last two outs
for his 15th save of the season, which
tied him with John Smoltz for the most
saves in franchise history with 154.
Derek Dietrich and Casey McGe-
hee each drove in two runs and Chris-
tian Yelich had three hits for the Marlins.

Mets 5, Phillies 4
had an RBI single with two outs in the
14th inning, leading the New York
Mets to a 5-4 victory over the Philadel-
phia Phillies in the second straight
marathon game between the teams.
New York needed 5 hours, 32 min-
utes to win this one after losing to the
Phillies 6-5 in a 14-inning game Friday
night that took 5:23 to complete.
The Phillies and Mets have played
37 innings in three games with two more
still to play in the rare five-game series.

Dodgers 12, Pirates 2
LOS ANGELES Hanley Ramirez
homered twice, drove in five runs and
scored four times, tying career highs
in all three categories and leading the
Los Angeles Dodgers to a 12-2 rout of
the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-2) breezed to his third
straight victory, allowing two runs and
10 hits with four strikeouts and no walks.
Jamey Wright was credited with his
second save in 19 major league sea-
sons, after pitching the final three in-
nings and allowing one hit.

The Rio 2016 Olympic golf course is seen under con-
struction May 13 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Grass has
been going down for several weeks at the course. That
changed Saturday, when Rio organizers confirmed that
a state prosecutor could halt work on the course un-

regulations and other requirements under Brazilian law.


concerns could

halt work on

Olympic course

Associated Press

Like other delayed ven-
ues for the beleaguered
Rio 2016 Olympics, work
on the golf course has
fallen behind schedule.
But grass has been
going down for several
weeks at the course,
which has created an
upbeat mood as golf pre-
pares to return to the
Olympics after a 112-
year absence.
That changed Satur-
day when Rio organizers
confirmed that a state
prosecutor could halt
work on the course un-
less the developer
shows it is following en-
vironmental regulations
and other requirements
under Brazilian law.
Rio 2016 spokesman
Mario Andrada con-
firmed the inquiry on
Saturday and said devel-
opers had been asked to
provide documentation
that would allow the
work to continue.
"The state prosecutor
is asking for the papers
to show the work is pro-
ceeding according to the
law," Andrada told The
Associated Press. "We
believe all the rules are
being followed."
Any delay would be
another blow to Rio's
troubled Olympics. The
International Olympic
Committee has dis-
patched a special trou-
bleshooter to accelerate
Rio's work, and recently
IOC vice president John
Coates called Rio's
preparations the "worst"
in memory.
Construction on the
privately developed
course, located about 15
miles west of Rio's fa-
mous Ipanema and Co-
pacabana beaches, had
been delayed by an on-
going legal dispute over
land ownership,
protests by environmen-
talists centered on the
loss of a wetland area,
and teething problems
for a sport new to
Plans call for the
course to be public
after the Olympics, al-
though it's being built
in a luxury apartment
development where
units are selling for a
minimum of $2.5 mil-
lion with many priced
much higher.
In a recent interview
with AP, American golf
architect Gil Hanse said
the course should be
fully grassed by Novem-
ber, and could be
playable midway
through 2015. He said it
would not be "tourna-
ment ready" until a few
months before the
games begin on Aug. 5,
"I think we are as or-
ganized as we have ever
been," he said. "Going
forward we have to
make sure we don't all
of a sudden start to rush
the finish work. Be-
cause ultimately the de-
tails of the finished
surface are what play-
ers are going to see. You
need to lavish lots of
time and attention on
the details of the fin-
ished surfaces."
Hanse said a test

event is likely before the
Olympics, although
Peter Dawson, head of
the International Golf
Federation, suggested it
might be difficult.
The course itself
could be dwarfed by
what's going up around
it in Barra da Tijuca, the
site for the Olympic
Park and many games'
Developers plan to
build 160 luxury apart-
ments in four 20-story
towers overlooking the
course. A key player in
the project is Italy-born
Pasquale Mauro, one of
the largest landowners
in the Barra area.
The opulent marble
and glass units most
from 2,850 square feet to
6,975 square feet are
selling for between $2.5
and $7 million with com-
pletion set for a year
after the Olympics end.
One building features
a 14,100 square-foot
penthouse serviced by
six elevators, two bed-
rooms for maids, and
one master bedroom for
the "governess."
The development will
have an Italian flavor -
called Riserva Golf-
Vista Mare Residenziale
- and is billed in sales
literature as "Rio de
Janeiro's most exclusive
Among the amenities
are squash and tennis
courts, swimming pools
in every building, a 50-
meter outdoor pool, a
golf simulator, ferry
service across the la-
goon to the sea, a dance
studio, gym and a multi-
purpose court for bas-
ketball or three-man
"Besides the workout
academy, there are five
massage rooms and a
martial arts room to
help quell day-to-day
tension," the sales liter-
ature says.
A spokeswoman for
the Rio city government,
which is supervising the
private-sector project,
said the course would be
public for 10 years after
the Olympics. It's not
clear how the course
will be run after that.
Hand-painted signs
near the course suggest
not everyone is happy
"Golf for Whom?"
reads one.
The course got other
unwanted attention late
last year when broad-
snooted caimans that
survive in a fetid lagoon
nearby wandered on the
course. The alligator-
like creatures took
refuge in ponds on the
golf course, and are a
common sight in the
area where population
growth has pushed them
from a bordering man-
grove swamp, which has
been polluted with raw
sewage from unplanned
development in the
"They seem to be
happy to co-exist with us
now," Hanse said of the
wildlife. "The birds have
been back in droves. I've
seen the alligators
swimming around, but I
actually haven't run into
them. It's our hope they
find this an acceptable

Baylor's 7-2 win knocks Lady Noles out of WCWS

Associated Press

Jordan Strickland hit a pair
of two-run homers, Heather
Stearns and Whitney Canion
combined on a five-hitter
and Baylor beat Florida State
7-2 on Saturday in a Women's
College World Series
(WCWS) elimination game.
Baylor (48-15) advanced
to play Kentucky later Sat-
urday in another elimina-
tion game. Florida State
(55-9) managed only two
runs in its two WCWS
games, losing 3-0 to Oregon
in the first round.

Florida State's national
player of the year, pitcher
Lacey Waldrop, struggled
for a second straight game.
After giving up 10 hits to
Oregon, Waldrop (38-7)
surrendered six hits to the
Bears in four innings, in-
cluding three in a three-
run second inning
highlighted by Strickland's
first homer Clare Hosack
and Linsey Hays hit sharp
singles before Strickland's
shot over the left-center
field wall.
Meanwhile, Stearns-
making her first start since
May 3 against Iowa State

- struck out the side in
the first inning and gave
up four hits while striking
out seven in 4 2/3 innings.
"Heather Stearns hasn't
thrown in a long, long
time," Baylor coach Glenn
Moore said. "For her to
come out and pitch a game
like that against Florida
State, a great hitting team,
I can't say enough good
things about her It was an
exceptionally well-pitched
"Jordan swung the bat
and really stepped up. I
think our whole team was
more relaxed this time."

Robin Landrith's RBI
single keyed a two-run
fourth that put the Bears
up 5-0.
In the fifth, the Semi-
noles got a two-out, two-
run double from Briana
Hamilton off Stearns (14-
4). But with the potential
tying run at the plate, Can-
ion Baylor's ace re-
tired Kelly Hensley and
finished the game with her
second save of the season.
Strickland followed in
the sixth with her second
homer It was her third
multi-homer game of the
season, with the others

coming in consecutive
games against Oklahoma
State on April 18-19.
"We had a completely
different approach today,"
Strickland said. "We knew
it was one-and-done and
we weren't ready for this
season to be done yet. We
just came in with a lot of
intensity today and just
kind of were working to
put it all together
"For me, once I stepped
to the plate in the seven-hole,
it was more relaxed because
the hitters in front of me
had been doing their jobs
and they were on base."

Hays finished 3-for-3 with
two stolen bases and three
runs scored for Baylor
Florida State was mak-
ing its first WCWS appear-
ance in 10 years.
"What an outstanding
venture for our program,"
Florida State coach Lonni
Alameda said. "This sen-
ior class has been out-
standing in guiding us to
be relentless in the pursuit
of being here. We've really
enjoyed this. We've en-
joyed the support.
"Everything we're learn-
ing right now as a program
is going to get us back here."

College players could

get $40 million from

proposed settlement

Associated Press

A $40 million settle-
ment has been completed
that will pay college foot-
ball and basketball play-
ers dating to 2003 for the
use of their likenesses in
NCAA-branded video
The payouts could go to
more than 100,000 ath-
letes, including some cur-
rent players, who were
either on college rosters
or had their images used
in video games made by
EA (EA) featuring college
teams. Lawyers for the
plaintiffs say it would be
the first time college ath-
letes will be paid for the
commercial use of their
Depending on how

the settlement, the pay-
ments could range from
as little as $48 for each

"We're incredibly
pleased with the results
of this settlement and the
opportunity to right a
huge wrong enacted by
the NCAA and EA against
these players and their
rights of publicity," said
Steve Berman, one of the
lead attorneys in the case.
"We've fought against in-
tense legal hurdles since
filing this case in 2009 and
to see this case come to
fruition is a certain victory."
The settlement is with
EA and Collegiate Licens-
ing Co., which licenses
and markets college
sports, and does not in-
clude the NCAA. The case
against the NCAA is
scheduled for trial early
next year.
Plaintiffs in the case,
which dates to 2009, con-

with EA and Collegiate

NCAA that could reshape
the way college sports op-
erate. That case, featur-
ing former UCLA
basketball star Ed O'Ban-
non and others as lead
plaintiffs, goes to trial
June 9 in Oakland,
According to docu-
ments filed with the court
late Friday, attorneys for
O'Bannon and 20 other
plaintiffs say they have al-
ready run up legal fees
exceeding $30 million
and expenses of more
than $4 million in press-
ing their case. They are
seeking an injunction
that would stop the NCAA
from enforcing rules that
prohibit athletes from
profiting from their play
in college.
O'Bannon, who led
UCLA to a national title
in 1995, is also part of the
group settling with EA
Sports and Collegiate Li-
censing Co. Also covered
by the settlement are
suits brought by former
Arizona State quarter-
back Sam Keller, former
West Virginia football
player Shawne Alston
and former Rutgers
player Ryan Hart.
According to the filing,
a pool of money will be
available to players after
attorneys take 33 percent
of the proposed settle-
ment and up to $2.5 mil-
lion in expenses. Named
plaintiffs like O'Bannon
and Keller will receive
$15,000, while others who
joined the suit later
would get $2,500 or $5,000.
The majority of the
money, however, will go to
athletes who file for
claims, a group that attor-
neys say could contain be-
tween 140,000 and 200,000
players who were on foot-
ball and basketball ros-
ters from 2003 on. The
final payouts will depend
on how many of those ath-
letes file claims in the
class-action case.
EA Sports announced
last year it would stop
making the long-running
NCAA football videogame
series because of the liti-
gation and other issues in
securing licensing rights.

Monfils and Fognini combined
for more than twice as many un-
forced errors (137) as winners (66).
Nadal's play was considerably
cleaner: During the entire
course of his 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 win
against 65th-ranked Leonardo
Mayer of Argentina, the No. 1-
seeded Spaniard made 10 un-
forced errors two in the first
set, three in the second, five in
the third.
He's dropped a total of 19
games through three matches.
More worrisome would be his
back, which also acted up in Jan-
uary during a loss to Stan
Wawrinka in the Australian
Open final.
"During my career, I had (a)
few problems. ... Hopefully will
not be (the) case" the rest of the
way in Paris, Nadal said.
Against Mayer, Nadal aver-
aged only 102 mph on first serves,
with a top speed of 114 mph.
That was down from an aver-
age of 111 mph and top of 122 mph
in the first round last Monday
Through two matches, Nadal
faced five break points and lost
serve twice. He dealt with eight
break points Saturday, losing

The last time Nadal won 31
matches in a row in Paris, he
failed to get No. 32, losing in the
fourth round in 2009 to Robin
Soderling a defeat that later
was blamed, in part, on injured
knees. That remains the
Spaniard's lone setback in 63
matches at the tournament.
Next for Nadal is 83rd-ranked
Dusan Lajovic of Serbia, who
beat Jack Sock of the United
States 6-4, 7-5, 6-3. Another
American, Donald Young, lost in
five sets to Guillermo Garcia-
Lopez of Spain, leaving No. 10
John Isner as the last U.S. man.
Before this French Open, La-
jovic had a 10-21 career record
in tour-level matches, never win-
ning two in a row
"I saw him play a few times on
TV Sure, it's great to have new
players on tour, young players on
the tour that are coming strong.
Hopefully not too strong," Nadal
said with a smile. "We'll see on
Monday I hope to be ready"
Asked whether he would seek
advice from another Serbian,
No. 2 Novak Djokovic, before
facing Nadal, Lajovic joked:
"Yeah, I will try to ask everybody
(for) some tips."
That won't help if Nadal pro-
duces shots of the sort he did
when Mayer served at 5-all in the
second set-a stretching, scoop-
ing backhand lob to break.
As Mayer watched the shot sail

overhead, he waved his left hand
to signal to the ball to go out,
then rolled his eyes when it
curled in. Nadal pumped his fist,
ahead 6-5 and on his way to
reaching the fourth round for the
10th time in 10 French Opens.
Monfils will take on Garcia-
Lopez for a quarterfinal berth.

We may hate change, but change has found us

Some of us are
agents of change.
And sometimes change
just happens to us.
Citrus County is going
through a transition right
now, and it's not just about
the recent high school grad-

Think about it for a

tal for more than 50 years
and it is about to be

Every major adminis-

ernment has resigned or
retired, creating the need
for a new leadership team.
Crystal River City Man-
ager Andy Houston is going

to retire this month and
new leadership will take
over at city hall.
Sen. Charlie Dean is in
the final two years of his po-
litical career after holding
elected office for nearly 35
years. His senate tenure
ends in 2016 because of
term limits.
And Sheriff Jeff Dawsy
says that he will not seek re-
election in 2016. (And this
time he means it.)

And let's not forget, it
was just last year that our
county's largest private
business Progress En-
ergy was purchased by
Duke Energy. That has been
a huge change for employ-
ees and the community es-
pecially for those who were
employed at the now-closed

We collectively hate
change because there is
great risk involved. We

know what we have now
and we're not too sure what
change might bring.
The Boston Red Sox once
wanted change, so they
traded Babe Ruth (who fre-

Ted hugs his young daughter, Claudia. Claudia Williams has recently published a memoir to share with the world her memories of the man remembered

1966 Hall of Fame induction, wanted to share her

Unfulfilled promises: The

VA medical services debacle

Editor's note: The following
opinion piece was emailed to
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, U.S.
Rep. Jeff Miller (Chairman
House Veterans Affairs Com-
mittee), and U.S. Rep. Richard
Nugent (member of the House
Armed Services Committee).
y all accounts, the pres-
ent Veterans Affairs
medical service program
is woefully overwhelmed with
demand, underwater technically
hampered by the American
Federation of Government Em-
ployees-driven personnel prac-
tices, and is led by people who
fail to appreciate
and balance the in- Robert (
compatibilities of GUI
institutional preser- COLI
vation versus mission ____
The achievements of the VA
are hampered by a number of
compelling factors. Among these
are the rapidly growing number
of eligible veterans, the thwart-
ing of services delivery capac-
ity due to existing demographic
constraints, a demonstrated
penchant for believing that the
construction of more of the same
facilities would be a cost-effective
measure, the challenges of op-
erating a business in a manner
that will enhance recruitment
and retention of top-grade
physicians, nurses and allied
health providers who can offer
more than an altruistic presence.
These and the apparent ab-
sence of effective congressional
oversight are but some of the
known impediments that have
thus far added up to the
achievement of a zero-gain con-
coction. Enough already!
A new prescription needs to
be carefully thought out And yes,
the promise can be kept if the
architecture of our medical serv-
ices delivery system to veterans
can be effectively integrated with
the ongoing health services de-
livery systems now existent in
every state and municipality in
this great country For too long
we have assumed that the serv-
ices delivered to deserving vet-
erans are best managed by
another layer in our government
bureaucracy This approach has
indeed provided services qual-
ity that range from poor to
mediocre and only sometimes
to outstanding (Walter Reed -
non-VA is a good example)
depending on the proximity to
and availability of medical
teaching institutions who house
state-of-the-art physicians and
who provide Interns who are
highly motivated to provide the
very best. We need to capitalize
on expertise and facilities such
as these and with established
leading hospitals which are in-
deed more accessible to our
veteran population.
With the present VA program,
a great deal of money, time and
effort are devoted to transport-
ing veterans to distant VA care
facilities of which there are ap-
proximately 160 throughout the
nation (not counting the many
lesser contact points that exist).
The Disabled American Veter-
ans (DAV) does provide a laud-
able program which transports
veterans to and from the vari-
ous VA service facilities, but not
without the veterans themselves


doing the heavy lifting and so-
liciting of donations to help de-
fray costs ofvehicles. In addition,
veterans are compensated for
using their own vehicles and or
other modes of transportation
to get them to the distant serv-
ice points. While this is an ex-
pense that might be considered
comparatively small, it is in-
deed unnecessary for the most
part. Consider that if a given
veteran can report to a private
or public medical facility
nearby his or her residence, get
at least the same or perhaps
even better and faster evalua-
tion and service, the VA could
save these travel
rawford dollars; but more
-ST importantly, the toll
JMN taken on the ill vet-
eran is also lessened
to a great extent.
Does that make sense?
Far greater and more benefi-
cial savings can be achieved by
contracting with municipal/pri-
vate medical facilities which
typically have in residence the
trained expert personnel and
needed state-of-the-art equip-
ment. The stuff is there and is
most likely superior to that of
most stand alone VA-operated
facilities. As to expanding the
capacity of these local facilities,
most likely it can be demon-
strated that their expansion, as
necessary, would be more cost-
effective than any GSA-man-
aged new construction program.
How is this done? The pres-
ent VA-manned medical admin-
istrative component can be
downsized, refocused and relo-
cated in smaller regional/area
offices. Primarily they could be
tasked to manage the eligibility
process, audit and manage fee
for services/hospital costs reim-
bursement processes, and con-
duct quality assurance reviews
of case handling matters in sup-
port of the approved service
providers. Such offices, in many
cases, could for the sake of
economy- be co-located with
Social Security District and
Branch offices which are wide-
spread throughout the nation.
These offices are engaged in
processes which are somewhat
similar to the intake, schedul-
ing, and case processing func-
tions undertaken by the VA in
conjunction with local veteran's
affairs offices. Additionally,
SSA and VA are already part-
ners in systems data exchange
programs and each agency is
involved in the adjudication of
disability claims. Whatever (if
any) location scheme is
adopted, it is important to pre-
serve the distinctiveness of VA
assisted medical services while
minimizing the huge-central-
ized and somewhat clumsy bu-
reaucracy that presently cannot
get out of its own way
The division of administra-
tive tasks between the local
medical institutions and the
satellite VA offices would need
to be carefully thought out so as
to preclude duplication of ef-
fort and confusion. Further, the
integrity of the VA program
should not be compromised in
any effort to institute cost-effec-
tive geographical placement of
these administrative services
offices or in the selection of

tion, the avoidance of an im-
pression of preferential
treatment for veterans vis-a-vis
others by the local population is
essential in this age of political
No guarantee however, that
staff lethargy won't threaten the
productivity of these adminis-
trative components no matter
where they're located in the fu-
ture if personnel policies and
practices are not carefully re-
vised to emphasize and assure
quality of service over mainte-
nance of staff comfort. The
present mentality must not sur-
vive the proposed transition.
There remains and obvious
question as to what to do with
the "superfluous" bricks and
mortar facilities that the VA has
created throughout the country
Well, in many instances these
facilities can either be leased to
existing hospital corporations
or municipalities, as may be ap-
propriate, if they are indeed
salvageable. In any case, retain-
ing many of these facilities in
the inventory of the VA would
be prohibitive from a cost
standpoint Many of these prop-
erties might well be gifted to
state/local governments for con-
version to other compatible
uses. In some instances they
could be converted into living
facilities for certain classes of
eligible veterans.
This approach to revising the
mechanism for providing im-
portant medical services to our
veterans should be considered,
critiqued, and weighed against
the present system that is in-
deed broken and probably not
worth fixing given the mix of
unmanageable circumstances
listed above. Institutional re-
sistance to changes of this order
of magnitude is expected. Re-
gardless, significant change is
warranted. Great care needs to
be exercised in pursuing the
creation of such an architecture
given that the Affordable Care
Act, with its' inherent problems,
and the ongoing turbulence of
private-sector hospital merg-
ers/acquisitions driven by the
scramble survive the high costs
of providing services. These cir-
cumstances cloud the issues
and most likely will continue to
confound the Congress as they
are now so doing.
It is indeed one thing to damn
the VA while vocally and edito-
rially advocating for the care of
our veterans; yet it is still an-
other to put aside criticism and
political finger pointing and to
get on with the business of pro-
moting solutions to the problem
which is abundantly apparent
to all. It's not enough to say that
our veterans deserve the finest
as we indeed are witness to the
fact that this is not now the
case, nor will it be in the fore-
seeable future if we keep doing
the same things over again
while expect different results.
Just maybe this is one change
we can believe in! Can it be done?

family seemed daunting and un-
achievable. This book includes
the best stories that reflect or il-
lustrate who each one of us -
my father, my brother and myself
- was, and is, in the Williams
family, so that the reader can
come to his or her own conclu-
sions. Ift's a story about a family,
the family that surrounded a
phenomenal and flawed -
man. I answer a lot of questions
and reveal a lot of things that I
didn't have to. But it's certainly
going to let you appreciate who
they were and I am as people."

The book starts with the au-
thor's still-vivid recollections of
a Boston Red Sox old-timers'
game in 1982. Before that game,
Claudia Williams, raised with
John-Henry by their mother Do-
lores Wettach on a secluded Ver-
mont farm following her parents'
divorce when she was 3, didn't
know her father was famous, let
alone one of the most accomplished
baseball players of all time.
"I was more excited that my
brother was on the field as an
honorary batboy," she recalled.
"Then they started talking about
this guy whose numbers were
huge, records that still stand.
And the last thing I heard was
the announcer say he served two
hitches in the Marines. The
crowd didn't just go wild, it came
alive, and my mom looks down
and says, 'That's daddy' At 10
years old, I could feel the elec-
tricity in the air. It's one of my
fondest memories of him."

From there, Williams lays bare
a series of detailed accounts of
her life around her father and
brother, who died of leukemia in
2004 at age 35, just 20 months
after his father passed, and the
insights she picked up along the
way She says the book evolved
from what was supposed to be a
collection of "nice, fluffy, puffy
wonderful little stories about
what I learned from my father"
Its finished form goes deeper, re-
counting how she learned to
navigate her father's tumultuous
temper, which earned him the
nickname "The Beast" from his
family, her own struggles to be
taken seriously as an athlete by
her family she qualified for
nationals in triathlon and the
burden of trying to live up to her
father's accomplishments and
standards, as well as her quest to
emulate the best of what she saw
in her father, while refusing to
rely on the benefits of his celebrity
She addresses her father's
troubled relationships with women,
including his first daughter Bar-
bara Joyce (Mary-Jo). She writes
about his passion for helping
those less fortunate, as seen in his
works for The Jimmy Fund and
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
She relates his condemnations
of baseball's and society's -
unequal treatment toward black
players, illustrated through his
Hall of Fame speech in 1966. One
story in the book involves former
MLB pitcher James "Mudcaf't"
Grant and his misplaced luggage
in New Orleans, during the Jim
Crow era in the South.
"Mud told a phenomenal story

John-h n

(involving my dad) when he was
inducted into the Ted Williams
Hall of Fame," Williams said. "I
loved it so much I slipped it into
the book before the deadline.
Dad's allegiance and dedication
to children who had cancer, and
the way he stood up for the Negro
League players and fellow black
players, were the two things I'm
most proud of for my dad."
In the book, Williams goes into
the strain the memorabilia in-
dustry put on her family, and the
scrutiny it drew to her brother as
well as John-Henry's embattled
financial and business role in
the family She also notes her fa-
ther's unconventional phone eti-
quette, recalls the first time she
brought a boyfriend home from
college to meet Ted Williams,
her father's appreciation of con-
temporary ballplayers, and the
bittersweet times she shared
with her father and brother in
the years before their deaths.
Hoping to help the public un-
derstand her family's motiva-
tions, Williams also discusses
the multitude of factors that led
to the oft-publicized and contro-
versial agreement- against the
wishes of Bobby-Jo to have
the remains of her father, and
later her brother, sent to the
Alcor Life Extension Founda-
tion in Arizona for cryonic
preservation. Williams points to
her father's ambivalent and
often contentious feelings on re-
ligion, most notably after his vis-
its with children suffering from
cancer, his curiosity and apti-
tude for science and his wish to
give John-Henry and Claudia some
comfort as he confronted death.

"Everyone already knows about
this private family decision that
we made," she said. "Now, I'm
telling you how we got there. It
came from an evolution, from life
experiences, and once we dis-
covered it, it sounded like it was
for us. I'm not trying to convince
anyone of cryonics, and I'm not
asking anyone to like it. But I am
asking people to respect it, be-
cause it was our family decision,
made out of love, and it should
have been private. So I'm asking
people to read my story on how
we got there, so that they might
think twice before criticizing.
"There are numerous, legiti-
mate and sound doubts over
whether cryonics will work. But
we signed up for the hope, for
the chance. People don't buy lot-
tery tickets because they know
they're going to win. They buy
them for the hope, the dream."

Wettach, who moved nearer
her daughter after being diag-
nosed with dementia, is also an
important character in Williams'
memoir and, in more than one
way, a crucial figure behind the
book's existence. Williams offers
the story of how her mother and
father met on a plane in New
Zealand and the modeling ca-
reer Wettach sacrificed to raise
a family Williams describes her
sometimes rocky relationship
with her mother, which led the
daughter to escape into her ath-
letic training and later spend
long stretches in Europe, first
during high school in the Inter-
national Baccalaureate pro-
gram, and later during her

college and post-collegiate
years, teaching English and
training as a triathlete.
"Simply put," Williams said, "I
made a promise to my mom when
she had a stroke and was diag-
nosed. I promised I would tell a
story of the husband (Ted Williams)
that nobody knew, the son (John-
Henry) that nobody knows, and
that I would protect and preserve
their legacy and honor them."

"Ted Williams, My Father,"
paints an introspective journey
for Williams, one that surprised
the author as she reckoned with
the emotionally charged memories.
"I tell the good and the bad,"
she said. "I tell some stories in
there that were hard to tell, hard
for me to realize how I felt when
I was writing them."
She now sees herself in her fa-
ther's image more than ever
"The thing I learned the most
about writing this book is just
how much I'm like my father
One of my dad's life lessons to
his kids was, 'Don't be afraid to
push the envelope and be differ-
ent. And whatever you do, do it
with passion.' When I'm criti-
cized, it's for the very attributes
that my dad instilled in me. My
heart is on the line, and I'm
damn proud of it.
"I needed to prove myself as a
daughter and as a woman," she
added. "And there was a beauti-
ful reward on the other side -
we had a fantastic relationship.
Is he like your average dad? Ab-
solutely not! But I'm glad. I'm my

father's daughter"

Starting with Ted Williams
Day in 1991, on which Claudia
surprised her father by throwing
out the ceremonial first pitch at
Fenway after learning to throw
from a couple of college friends,
Williams' memoir details sev-
eral trips, ceremonies and func-
tions she joined her father and
brother for that served as cap-
stones to the familial bond be-
tween the three in the final
decade of Ted Williams' life.
"He often turned to us to be by
his side at these gatherings,"
Williams writes. "My father ap-
preciated how my brother and I
had matured, and he saw us as
important traveling companions
to have with him. We were be-
ginning to form something of a
traveling trio."
Williams discusses being with
her father when he received the
Presidential Medal of Freedom
in 1991, her graduation trip
through California with just her
father and brother, when she
first visited Ted Williams' child-
hood neighborhood in San
Diego, and when the three vis-
ited Cape Canaveral to watch
Williams' friend, former U.S.
senator and astronaut John
Glenn, launch into space at the
age of 77. The latter event which
included amusing brushes be-
tween Ted Williams and younger
entertainment celebrities, was
particularly moving for the family
"I did not expect to feel the
emotions that wrapped around
us, but there they were,"
Williams writes in the book. "...
when we turned to look at each
other in amazement, we all had
tears in our eyes. We were liter-
ally blown away Dad spoke first.
"For months afterward, he
would attempt to describe it
over and over to anybody who
would listen."

Shortly before her brother
died, Claudia Williams made an-
other promise, this one to her
brother: If he survived, he would
go to medical school to become
a doctor and she would become
a nurse. In "Ted Williams, My
Father," Williams discusses car-
ing for her father with her
brother after her father's health
went into sharp decline.
Williams attended nursing
school while she wrote the book,
and graduated last month, around
the time of the book's release.
Her training even led to the book's
final story, which recounts a sur-
prising connection she made
with a patient an avid fan of her
father who didn't realized he
was being treated by the daugh-
ter of "The Splendid Splinter"
"I don't recommend it,"
Williams said of her double-duty
pursuits. "Don't go to nursing
school and write a book at the
same time. No sooner did I get in
the middle of this book and I'm
looking at deadlines that I got
my first B. This is no ghost writer
that wrote this book. This is me.
It's my words.
"It absolutely killed me be-
cause I was getting all As," she
added, channeling her father's
perfectionism. "I didn't get all
As in nursing school, but I did
accomplish something that makes
me feel very good, and you'll see
why if you read the book."

methods and standards
lacked substantial scien-
tific support. Statewide
adoption was coerced by
the U.S Department of
Education using "stimu-
lus" grants, "Race to the
Top" awards and waivers
from the No Child Left
Behind Act.
Supporters of Common
Core believed that set-
ting uniform goals to be
achieved by all students
would tell them and their
teachers that they are ca-
pable of higher levels of
performance. Similar
standards had been
shown to improve out-
comes in private schools
and even in some inner-
city charter schools. But
educators in those
schools are less con-
strained in dealing with
the disadvantages some
children bring to class.
They don't have to accept
behavior and discipline
problems and they don't
have to babysitt" stu-
dents with severe learn-
ing disabilities.
Perhaps the group that
framed the Common
Core standards had no
better choice. They knew,
but perhaps dared not
admit, that the real and
insurmountable problem
is the nature of public
students themselves.
Beginning with the
1960s student revolt
against anything that was
"establishment" or tradi-
tional, including preva-
lent morals and norms of
behavior, our society
began the process of be-
coming coarse, vulgar,
disrespectful, less disci-
plined, less ambitious
and more entitled. The
stable family unit gave
way to the unstable, im-
poverished single-parent
family Substance abuse,
early onset of sexual ac-
tivity and children born
to unmarried women be-

came the new norm. To
the extent that our chil-
dren reflect those socie-
tal changes, they become
less able to be taught,
less motivated to learn
and achieve. I think it no
coincidence that meas-
ured student achieve-
ment began to drop in
the 1960s and has contin-
ued to drop every year
Because Common
Core does not address
the societal issues caus-
ing public schools to
continue to underper-
form, it cannot be ex-
pected to significantly
affect student perform-
ance. Its methodology is
unproven. It does gives
the federal government
an undue influence over
educational standards at
the expense of states
and local boards. Per-
sonal, very private, data
collected from students
will ultimately become
available to the federal
government. The
process of converting to
Common Core is time-
consuming, costly and
Coercion by the fed-
eral Department of Edu-
cation flies in the face of
laws prohibiting creation
of a uniform federal edu-
cation standard. In the
near future, Common
Core may be found to be
I believe we would do
well to reconsider adop-
tion of Common Core.

Winn-Dixie angels
I would like to say that I know
God has His angels looking out
over us all the time. I went to the
Winn-Dixie in Lecanto yesterday,
May 14, in the evening, to pick up
some cough medicine and a little
Tylenol and I got a few little
things. When I used my debit card,
it said insufficient funds for the
amount. I went to the ATM to
check it and it still wouldn't go
through. As I came back to tell the
cashier I would have to replace the
things because I didn't have
enough money, one of God's an-
gels, a very nice-looking young
couple, said, "Don't worry about
it," they would pay my bill. I was
very surprised by this and told
them, no, it was fine, I would put
the things back. And they insisted,
no, that it was something that they
wanted to do. And I just wanted to
thank them. I do not know their
names. God bless them and God
bless the people of Citrus County.
Thank you.

Don't like that tune
I would like to (talk) on the subject
of playing music. Supposedly there
is a noise ordinance in the little town
of Hernando, but yet we're not allowed
to play music at anything, any sound
level, because our neighbor does not
like it and calls the cops repeatedly.
If there is not a noise ordinance, why
are we not allowed to play music?
Cops come out. Is it because we live
in the poorer section of Hernando
that we get harassed by the cops?
We'd like to know the answer to this.
Editor's note: We don't have the
answer to that question, but we're
sure Hernando does not have a noise
ordinance. The county does, though,
which includes Hernando.
Duke holds the cards
Let's get something straight: The

what they're going to do and if they
don't, then the board members on

Tax lien must

be resolved

before buying

new building

EAR BRUCE: I am starting a
small business, and one of
the buildings I am looking at
has a tax lien against it from the pre-
vious owner How will that affect a
potential small-business loan? Will a
bank allow me to use part of the
loan to pay off the tax lien, or does
that have to be paid out-of-pocket?
DEAR J.H.: If the bank will
allow you to borrow money to re-
tire the lien, that would be the sim-
plest way to handle the matter
Failing that don't buy the building
unless the lien is satisfied by the
previous owner at the same time the
sale is consummated. The last thing
you need is to have your life compli-
cated with a lien of this kind. It
should be very simple to settle.
DEAR BRUCE: I'm contemplat-
ing getting a reverse mortgage. I'm
65 and my wife is 71. What is your
opinion on this type of mortgage,
pro and con?
DEAR S.C.: I have no problem
with reverse mortgages as such. In
proper circumstances, they allow
access to monies that would other-
wise be sitting dormant. If you
have determined that you aren't
worried about heirs, a reverse
mortgage has to be recommended.
That having been advised, the
problem is that you are 65. Reverse
mortgages are available for people
as young as 62, that is true, but for a
very small percentage. If this is the
only avenue available to you, go for
it But recognize that you will be al-
lowed to borrow a whole lot less be-
cause of your relative youth than
you would if you were older
DEAR BRUCE: I am 70 years old
and I have an annuity that has ma-
tured. If I redeem it, the capital
gains would be a little over $40,000.
The guaranteed value (excluding
death benefit) is $72,000, which is
the original investment amount. If
I withdraw from it, I reduce the
value of the guaranteed amount.
I would like to roll this over into
another annuity so I can guarantee
the full amount and not have to pay
capital gains taxes. At present, I
don't need the money but would like
to have it available should I need to
withdraw monthly amounts.
I have talked to several advisers
who seem to be more self-serving
than helpful.
DEAR EDWARD: You are very
fortunate that you have an annuity
that has matured and is ready to be
redeemed. The problem is, I cannot
tell you which way to go without a
lot more specific information, nor
could anyone else. It all depends not
only on this circumstance in your
life, but also on other factors.
There are many good and suc-
cessful advisers whom you can ap-
proach and depend on to help you
with this. It's going to cost you, as
well it should. If you go cheap, the
chances are you are going to get
lousy advice.
DEAR BRUCE: Please share the
names of safe mutual funds I can
invest in without the services of a
DEAR JIMMIE: It is not my pol-
icy to provide specific names of
companies, but there are dozens
and dozens of no-load mutual
funds that would serve your pur-
pose adequately You will have to
do a little bit of looking up, and
that doesn't require a great deal of
intellect or experience.
It certainly is worth the effort to
do this research because there are
many no-load companies that are
better than the load companies.
Accept this as a challenge. The in-
formation is out there.

Karma Resale Shoppe

When you visit Karma Resale Shoppe, you will enter into an artfully displayed shop
exuding casual elegance and will be cheerfully greeted by Louise Clark. Louise has
lived in Citrus County since the early 197os, has a degree in fashion merchandising,
owned a popular resale shop in Floral City and has owned Karma Resale Shoppe
since fall 2013.
After being first astonished that this shop is indeed in Citrus County and not Miami or New York, you
will discover that her merchandise only looks expensive. You will find in immaculate condition a variety
of carefully selected, gently used women's apparel, shoes, handbags, jewelry and, in the near future,
giftworthy home decor. Resale items are not consigned, but purchased outright on an as-needed
basis. Louise says the word retirement is simply not in her vocabulary and is passionate about what she
does. She believes every woman is beautiful and can be stylishly attired without spending a lot of money.
Her delightful distinctive shop has become a gathering place where friendships between customers
have been formed, and many of her patrons travel great distances for a unique shopping experience
at affordable prices. Louise's motto for her shop is that it is "A Fun and Chiconomical Place to Shop"
and invites you to come visit. Karma is located at 109 N. Apopka Ave., across the street from the new
Courthouse in Inverness.

Employee of the Year

Seven Rivers Regional '

names Employee of the Year ,

Special to the Chronicle
Regional Medical Center has named
Susan Brooks, LPN, as 2013 Employee
of the Year This award is the highest
honor bestowed on a hospital employee
each year Susan was chosen from
among 460 employees for the honor
"Health care requires a special blend
of great people skills, tireless energy
and the ability to work well under pres-
sure," said Joyce Brancato, chief execu-
tive officer "People who work in
healthcare share the common desire to
help others and make a difference in
people's lives. It's a pleasure to recog-
nize our employees for their dedication
to our patients and to providing out-
standing care."
Employees are nominated for the
award by their hospital peers based on
their commitment to patient care, their
professionalism and their contributions
on the job.
Brooks has worked for Seven Rivers
Regional Medical Center since July
1998. She began her nursing career 40

S years ago, working the
night shift in a labor and
delivery unit. Later she
S became a school nurse.
Now, Susan cares for
medical and surgical pa-
....tients on the third floor
S of the hospital. When
Susan questions arise, it is
Brooks Susan's clinical expert-
ise and bedside experi-
ence that make her a favorite resource
for students, co-workers and leadership.
"From the time I was 6 years old, I
knew I wanted to be a nurse. My grand-
mother was a nurse in England. And
now, much of my family works in health-
care. They are nurses, doctors and ad-
ministrators," said Brooks. "Our calling
in life is to serve others. We've chosen
healthcare as our way to do that."
Brooks' manager knows why she was
selected as employee of the year
"She always goes the extra mile to
help others without being asked; she is
so in-tune with her work environment
and the needs of her co-workers," said
Carol DeFalco, nurse manager

Notice is hereby given that the West Central Florida Metropolitan Planning Organiza-
tions Chairs Coordinating Committee (CCC), which includes the counties of Citrus,
Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota, will conduct a
Public Hearing on Friday, June 13, 2014 at 10:00 am in Room 1 of the Polk State Col-
lege, Advanced Technology Center, 310 Technology Drive, Bartow, FL 33830.
The purpose of the public hearing is to afford the public the opportunity to comment
on the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 1 and District 7 2014
Regional Multi-Use Trails (MUT) Enhancement Program and 2014 Transportation
Regional Incentive Program (TRIP).
Each year the CCC updates its list of Regional Priorities for its Multi-Use Trails Element.
An extensive set of criteria were used to select and rank regional project priorities.
The priority list is used to guide the allocation of new funds intended for the
construction of regional trails and enhancement projects.
State funds are made available through the TRIP Program to help local governments
and others pay for transportation projects that benefit regional travel. To be eligible
for TRIP funding, projects must be regionally significant, identified on the CCC's
Regional Long Range Transportation Plan, and appear in local governments' Capital
Improvements Elements (CIE). Also, there must be a commitment for the remaining
matching funds.
Lists and maps of the regionally-significant TRIP transportation project priorities and
regional multi-use trails (MUT) project priorities for FDOT Districts 1 & 7 can be
accessed at htto://, or contact your local
Transportation Planning Organization (Citrus County TPO: 1-800-998-7433).
Any person requiring reasonable accommodation at this meeting because of a dis-
ability or physical impairment should contact the Citrus County Administrator's Of-
fice, 110 North Apopka Avenue, Inverness, FL 34450, (352)341-6560, at least two (2)

phone (352)341-6580.
In accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rghts Act of 1964 and other nondiscrimination
laws, public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin,
age, sex, religion, disability, or family status.

Average US 30-year loan

rate down to 4.12 percent

Associated Press

rates on fixed mortgages fell this
week for a fifth straight week. The
spring home-buying season has
started slowly, but it may be aided by
the low rates.
Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said
Thursday the average rate for a 30-
year loan edged down to 4.12 per-
cent from 4.14 percent last week.
The average for the 15-year mort-
gage declined to 3.21 percent from
3.25 percent.
Warmer weather has yet to boost
home-buying as it normally does.
Rising prices and higher interest

rates beginning in mid-2013 have
made homes less affordable for
would-be buyers. At the same time, a
limited supply of homes is available
to buy New construction has focused
increasingly on rental apartments,
instead of single-family homes.
Mortgage rates still are nearly a
full percentage point above record
lows reached about a year ago.
U.S. home prices rose in March,
data released Tuesday showed, but
the gains are decelerating as fewer
Americans can afford to buy

How to help your daffodils make more daffodils

Preserving 'baby' bulbs is key to success sc i

Associated Press
Now that daffodil bloom time has
passed, some gardeners might be
wondering where their flowers
were. If some plants remained all
leaves, with few or no flowers, why
was that?
It might be that overhanging trees
have made the location too shady
But the more likely culprit is the
plant's age.
As a daffodil bulb gets older, baby
bulbs, called offsets, develop snug-
gled up against its side. You can pic-

ture this most clearly if you realize
that a daffodil bulb is, essentially, a
compressed stem. That stem is the
"plate" at the base of the bulb, and
the leaves are the fleshy scales up
and around it.
Just as any stem eventually makes
side branches, a bulb also, with time,
"branches." These branches the

These daffodil bulbs have multiplied
so much that they're too crowded
to keep flowering well.

offsets likewise beget their own
babies. So what you have over time
is a lot of bulbs of varying sizes
packed into a very small space.
The offsets won't flower until they
reach a certain size. If they are too
crowded, they have trouble reaching
that size. The result: few or no
blooms. (It pays, then, when pur-
chasing bulbs, to get large ones; they
make more flowers their first
Give the bulbs
more elbow room
The obvious solution is to give
each developing bulb more room.
Dig up the bulbs and separate them
as soon as the foliage turns brown.
The youngest ones, the ones that
have just split off from their moth-
ers, are spoon-shaped. Older ones
are round and, if large enough, will
each house a single flower bud, pos-
sibly two. The larger the bulbs, the
better the blooms.
No need to plant the divided bulbs
back in the ground immediately
Bulb nurseries store their daffodil
bulbs out of the soil in a cool room. It
is during the summer, when the
bulbs are apparently dormant, that
buds inside the bulbs morph into
flower buds. Optimum conditions for
this change in daffodils are when
storage is at 75 percent humidity and
temperatures are around 60 degrees.
Easiest of course, is just to stick the
bulbs back in the ground, giving each
one enough room to develop and
make babies for a few years.
With good conditions, a spoon-
shaped baby becomes a small flow-
ering bulb after a year, and in
another year that small flowering
bulb can make two flower buds. After
another year, the "double-nose," as
it's called, is making offsets of its own.

Associated Press
A new daffodil called 'Georgie Boy,'
named to mark the birth of Prince
George, is shown at the Chelsea
Rower Show May 19 in London.
Daffodil futures
Daffodils like moderately rich soil
that stays moist but is not soggy Be-
cause most bulb growth takes place
after flowering, let the foliage re-
main undisturbed until it chooses to
die down, even if it's not all that
pretty in its final throes.
No tying it up or tucking it be-
neath other plants' leaves either, as
is sometimes recommended for hid-
ing the foliage out of sight. The
leaves need light to fatten up their
attendant bulbs.
Daffodils do not need this digging
and dividing operation every year,
which is one reason they are among
the best bulbs for naturalizing. Don't
begrudge them the operation when
it is finally needed, for you can
never have too many daffodils.

The National Association of Real-
tors said Thursday that its season-
ally adjusted pending home sales
index rose 0.4 percent to 97.8 last
month. The index remains 9.2 per-

Pending sales are a barometer of
future purchases. A one- to two-
month lag usually exists between a
signed contract and a completed
sale. The index indicates that
home buying has barely increased
in May

partly reflects the slight decline in
mortgage rates and the economic
rebound from the brutal winter But

Let's grab our nets and catch a few of the most in-
triguing recent examples:
In his "Pheromone" series, artist and designer
Christopher Marley of Salem, Oregon, marries his pas-
sion for crisp design with a fascination for insects, sea
organisms and birds by arranging them simply yet art-
fully on plain backgrounds in shadow boxes. A stripey
mountain kingsnake seems poised to meander north of
the frame in which he resides. A prion urchin looks like
a tiny alien spacecraft, sprung from the confines of the
ocean floor Dozens of beetles are arranged like the iri-
descent squadron of an entomological army Butterflies
form kaleidoscopic prisms.
The displays are an arresting mix of science and art
The specimens, which died of natural or incidental
causes, come from museums, breeders and zoos around
the world, Marley says. (
New York artist George Venson creates birds, snakes
and octopuses in vibrant, painterly hues, and then
arranges the images on wallpaper He wants the walls to
"come alive," and there's a sense of movement in each
design. Snakes slither through backgrounds of ink, acid
green or ruby (
In Osborne & Little's exotic Komodo wallpaper col-
lection, holographic foil lizards skitter across a black,
silver or gold background. (
Los Angeles designer Paul Marra's Snake Lantern
forges two sinuous creatures into the form of a steel and
brass pendant lantern. (
Sculptor Mike Libby once found a dead beetle and got
to thinking about how it had moved. He began dissect-
ing and experimenting at the same time taking apart
an old wristwatch, and using those pieces until he'd
come up with the first of an ongoing collection of fan-
tastical steampunk arachnids, bees and other creepy
crawlies. He uses real insect carcasses and bits from
watches, vintage typewriters and old sewing machines
to fashion carapaces, wings, antennae and pincers for
his mechanical menagerie. (
As Aristotle put it: "In all things of nature there is
something of the marvelous."

chases, which have helped
keep long-term interest
rates low. Indeed, the Fed
has announced four de-
clines in its monthly bond
purchases since Decem-
ber because the economy
appears to be steadily
healing. But the Fed has
no plans to raise its bench-
mark short-term rate from
record lows.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen
has told Congress that the
economy is improving but
noted that the job market
remains "far from satisfac-
tory" and that inflation is
still below the Fed's target
rate. She said she expects
the Fed's near-zero target
for short-term rates to re-
main appropriate for a
"considerable time" after
the bond purchases end.

under twice-weekly irriga-
tion until they are ready to
plant in gardens, meadows,
roadsides or flower boxes.
There are more than a
dozen species and hun-
dreds of pots ready to
adopt after a month in the
licensed backyard nursery
The plant inspector comes
twice a year or on re-
quest, if needed. This year
hundreds of "Florida-
friendly" plants are being
donated to Dunnellon Pub-
lic Library for their buffer
zone and planting beds.
Most Coreopsis have
cheerful, sunny yellow ray
flowers with a central disk
of darker contrasting color
One wetland species, C
nudata, in north Florida,
has pink flowers. It is not
tolerant of central
Florida's heat zone 10.
Different species have
flowers 1 to 2 inches in di-
ameter The "petals,"
properly called ray flow-
ers, have dentate or
toothed tips. Bloom period
is long-lasting, from spring
through to fall locally
Gardeners can depend
on these colorful plants in
natural settings or more
formal garden beds. Core-
opsis are easy to grow,
have few pest or disease
problems, require no fer-

tilization or supplemental
irrigation and are a delight
to see. Cut flowers last sev-
eral days in a vase.
Heights range from 1.5
to 2 inches tall. One
species can grow to 4 feet
tall in its natural wet habi-
tat. Plants are upright,
open and of moderate
growth. The fine-textured
foliage has mostly opposite
bright green leaves.
Tolerant of a wide range
of soil and climate condi-
tions, Coreopsis blooms
best in full sun with well-
drained yet moist soil. If
soil is very sand,y amend it
with decayed organic
humus. Humus retains soil
moisture and releases nu-
trients slowly as plants
need them for growth.
Overwatering causes
lanky, tall, thin plants that
may topple over or need
Colorful Coreopsis
brightens roadsides, natu-
ralistic gardens and flower
beds all summer There is
a place in every garden for
Florida's state wildflower

sional gardener and con-

Special to the Chronicle
This unusual looking tool was found
in the garage of an old house. A
manufacturer's mark indicates that it
was mass-produced, as opposed to
being a homemade item. Can John's
readers identify it?


Continued from Page E6

engraving on the side of the silver
box reads: "Challenge Horn Pre-
sented by a Member To No. 6. Co. 1st
A.VA." On the reverse side, it reads
"Won by Battery Sergeant Major A.
Paton 1889."
Thank you for your consideration
of this request. TE., Internet
Dear T.E.: Snuffboxes have been a
category of collecting for a long time.
They were made of gold, silver,
bronze, brass, wood, various animal
horns and more.
The photograph you included is
out of focus. I need better photos in
order to see the detail and finish the
DearJohn: I have a question for you.
I have a waterfall bed and dresser
with round original mirror, probably
from the 1940s. How much would they
be worth? They are actually mine. The
bed has the original slats.
Thank you for your time. I would
like to sell them. -B.S., Internet
Dear B.S.: Waterfall furniture is
often called Art Deco Waterfall. In
the Art Deco collecting category it is
low on the totem pole of collector
Waterfall furniture was manufac-
tured in large quantities between
World War I and II in a wide range
of quality Generally speaking, it
sells at very affordable prices. If you
can use it, it would be better kept
than sold. If you like, send several
good, clear photographs and I will
be more specific.
DearJohn: Attached are photos of
an item we found in the garage of an
old house my brother bought in
We were fascinated with this tool
and wondered what it was used for
and how No one has seen anything
like it. There are faint, unreadable
markings from the manufacturer on
the tongue, so we know it is not a
homemade item.
All our inquiries and research
have told us nothing, but have led us
to you! Hopefully you can inform us
about what this is and if there is any
value. Thank you in advance for
your time and efforts. We look for-
ward to reading your articles every
Sunday -J.C, Internet
DearJ.C.: I do not know what your
tool was made for A guess would be
farm tool category, perhaps a crop
planter of some type. Perhaps one of

our readers will recognize it.
Martin J. Donnelly is a nationally
recognized tool expert and has au-
thored several books on tools and
tool collecting. I suggest you contact
him about your tool. The website is Let us know
