According to a U.S. Coast Guard report, Steeds husband reported her missing after their 14foot johnboat drifted away while they were snorkeling for scallops. Sea Tow reported that Steed survived the 17hour ordeal in the water by making her way east. Too far out to make her way to land, Steed used her goggles to collect and drink rainwater from the nights four-hour storm, finding a PVC marker to rest on during the worst of the storm.

Family loses everything in house fireJerry Reed, his wife and three children came home to Citrus Springs on Friday to find only the walls of their newly purchased, 5,000-squarefoot home standing. The family was out of town attending a funeral when officials notified Reed that his home had been destroyed by fire, killing three of the familys four dogs. The fire was ruled accidental, with lightning as the probable cause, according to Citrus County Fire Marshall Ken Clamer. Everythings gone, Reed said. Though he knew it had occurred, he had no idea to what extent the lightning strike damaged his home. Weve got amazing friends and family that have been helping us out, he said. Theyve come forth to assist with salvaging what few items havent been destroyed, but the bare necessities of life were lost with the house. Donations of food, water and clothes are welcome.

Proving far less damaging than feared, Hurricane Arthur left tens of thousands of people without power Friday in a swipe at North Carolinas dangerously exposed Outer Banks, then brought lousy Fourth of July beach weather to the Northeast as it veered out to sea. The weather along the narrow barrier islands whose beaches draw hundreds of thousands of tourists every summer had already cleared by Friday afternoon as Arthur scooted north and its outer bands scraped the Delaware and New Jersey shores. Forecasters did predict a second landfall Saturday evening in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada. While state and local officials worked to restore access to Hatteras Island and help those who had suffered storm and flooding damage, the effects of the hurricane were mostly confined to that part of the state. Farther south, the beaches were once again packed with people soaking up the sun. The North Carolina beaches are open for business and theyre open for tourists, Gov. Pat McCrory said. The umbrellas are going up as we speak right Racer focuses on fun Woman finds success in a traditionally male-dominated sportEDYOUNGBLOOD Special to the ChronicleThe small animals at Humanitarians of Florida are grateful for Dora Thornes compassionate and gentle touch. The guys racing Central Floridas circle tracks, not so much. This breadth of interest and experience from animal welfare to the rough-and-tumble world of stock car racing clearly illustrates the extent to which Floral Citys Thorne will go to explore her inner landscape and test her limitations. She sums up her quest for meaningful experience nicely on her Facebook page: Id rather look back at my life and say I cant believe I did that instead of saying I wish I had. Thorne moved to Florida in her early 20s, by which time she had already established an adventurous lifestyle. I left home in New Jersey in my late teens and hitchhiked all over the United States, she said, making a living in mens work like construction, roofing, tree trimming, lineman and bartending. I went wherever excitement and a means to make a living took me. Exploring for new experiences was my life. In Florida, Thorne met her husband, Frank, and settled down somewhat. But in no way did she give up her active lifestyle. With a lifelong interest in animals, she took work as a veterinary assistant, a surgical assistant at Humanitarians of Florida, an animal control officer and an animal abuse investigator. She also has a private large animal wound care service. I love them all, but I think I prefer working with large animals, Thorne STEPHEN E.

Hurricane leaves thousands without power See ARTHUR/ Page A7 Duke wants self-build optionPATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Florida Public Service Commission could decide by September whether Duke Energy can build its proposed natural gas power plant in Citrus County. While the concept has received strong local support, several entities are challenging the need for the $1.5 billion project, including two other power companies and two large power users. Last October, Duke issued a request for proposals for the project. It received 12 submittals, including its own selfbuild option. Seven projects were involved from five power companies and all but one relied on natural gas. None of the proposals actually met MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerA memo sent to the Citrus County attorney in February by a Tallahassee attorney regarding the Citrus Memorial transaction was not meant to suggest the county intended to seek some of the proceeds from the deal, county officials said.

I love horses, especially, and have done all the rodeo cowgirl stuff barrel racing and so on. In 2010, Thorne saw an ad for a demolition derby at Citrus County Speedway. She had never been in a race car but thought it sounded like fun. She made a deal to set up an old Cadillac for the derby and signed up to drive. There must have been something about her that seemed competitive (or foolish), because that same evening she was recruited to drive a school bus in a figure-8 race. She was hooked by the fun and excitement of racing and bought a used Street Stock Camaro. She painted it with No. 48, which was her age when she started her racing career. I made every mistake possible my rookie season (2011), Thorne recalled. But I got a lot of help and advice and good will from the other drivers, probably because I wasnt a threat to anybody. When I asked Street Stock champion Curtis Flanagan for advice, he said, Just start in the back and try to keep up. But her second season 2012 was something different. She had bashed up the car so badly that during the off season they cut off the chassis from the firewall forward and installed a new front suspension. Now it handled really well, and I had a good engine built by Flanagan, Thorne said. With good equipment, Thorne focused on the points race for the season. She entered every event, won two finals, finished well in most of the others, and won the 2012 Citrus County Speedway Street Stock Championship. Things were different for the 2013 season, Thorne said. It got a lot rougher on the track because I was no longer the harmless nice lady at the back of the pack. Curtis said he no longer had the time to do my engine work, and our friendship became distant, at best. But Thornes success brought in a lot of new sponsors. These included Robert Todd Racing, the Woodshed Pub, Raymond Frankart Roofing, RyanMarkland Signs and others. I have a lot of good people pulling for me, and I am grateful to them all, Thorne said. Thornes strategy has changed for the 2014 season. I am not going for the Citrus County Speedway Championship, Thorne said. It is still my home track, but I am exploring other tracks in Central Florida. That season championship was a real confidence booster, and I am finding that to continue to learn, it is helpful to try other tracks and learn from other drivers. She adds, I am focusing on this being fun. I like serious competition, but I am not going to let title-seeking ruin it for me. At my age, the fun is more important. It appears that fun is not the only benefit of Thornes active lifestyle. At 52, Thorne is a handsome woman. She has blue/gray eyes that sparkle with mischief, and the lines in her face seem to have been fashioned by smiles, not by worry. Her blond and graying hair is kept in a long pony tail (the better to quickly stuff into a helmet), and her near-6foot frame is lean with muscular definition, especially on her tattooed upper arms. While she refuses to regard herself a feminist role model, a younger woman could do worse than take cues from her style and attitude. Thorne admits that it is not unusual for fans to ask her what she thinks of the top-tier celebrity driver Danica Patrick. She says, I just grin and say, Theres no comparison. Im better. That, she adds, always gets a good laugh and lets people know I dont take myself too seriously.Ed Youngblood can be reached at jungleeddy@ aol.com. RACERContinued from Page A1 STEPHEN E.

Grant said a public records request of the county for all materials related to the transaction with Hospital Corporation of America resulted in the February memo from attorney Lynn Hoshihara that said the transaction was actually partially a lease and partially a sale. Hoshihara said the county was entitled by law to half the proceeds of the sale and that officials should begin determining the expected value of the sale items. Hoshihara works with Encinosa. The law firm acts as an extended county attorney with Kerry Parsons. Encinosa said Parsons sought an opinion in February because the hospital board wanted the county to waive any rights it could have under state law in regards to the transaction. She said the request was nothing more than to provide direction, not a formal legal opinion. County officials did not act on Hoshiharas suggestion that the county begin to determine the potential sale proceeds in the HCA transaction. This is obviously a very limited legal inquiry that was never more fully fleshed out because, to my knowledge, the County was never actually presented with a proposed interlocal agreement or waiver nor ever made privy to the actual details of the proposed sale/lease/hybrid transaction, she wrote. Grant said he was happy to see Encinosa clear up the issue. The county is not pursuing what they said in the first opinion, he said. Its a very large removal of an impediment. I think everybody sees everybodys working together. Dukes capacity requirement. However, they were evaluated against Dukes self-build option, which was determined to be $282 million cheaper than the next lowest cost alternative. Subsequently, in May, Duke announced plans to self-build a state of the art, natural gas-fired plant in Citrus County to supply 1,640 megawatts of power in 2018. The company said building a natural gas plant was the most costeffective option to serve future demand, provide system-wide reliability and meet a 2018 inservice timeline. As proposed, the plant will be located on 400 acres near the existing Crystal River Energy Complex. It will get natural gas through the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline or an existing pipeline. It will take advantage of power transmission lines and other infrastructure at the complex. Duke also maintains it has a financing advantage over the other bidders. The plant will be built in two phases. The first 820-megawatt phase is scheduled to come on line by May 1, 2018, with the second phase by Dec. 1. 2018. By comparison, Dukes four coalfired plants at the Crystal River complex produce 2,290 megawatts, while the retired nuclear plant averaged 860 megawatts. Construction and related activities are expected to add several million dollars to the local economy. An estimated 600 to 700 construction jobs will be created during the height of the project. Once construction is complete, at least 40 permanent workers will be needed to operate the plant. Calpine Corp., a national wholesale power company, owns a natural gas plant in Auburndale, Florida. It proposed selling the output of that facility, 508 megawatts, and offered a free option to sell the plant to Duke during the third year of the arrangement for $300 million. In filings with the commission, Calpine stated it believes Duke and its customers will be better served by purchasing the Auburndale plant to avoid having to build that capacity. NRG Florida LP operates a turbine gas power plant southeast of Orlando that is interconnected with Duke Energy. It objects to Dukes plan as a retail electric customer that would be affected by the availability of power and rates it would have to pay. The effect on customer rates is also a concern of the Florida Industrial Power Users Group and White Springs Agricultural Chemicals. The commission has scheduled a hearing on the proposed plant for Aug. 26-27 and Sept. 3. Issues to be considered will include overall need, cost effectiveness, the need for fuel diversity and energy conservation or renewable sources.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, JULY 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Today is bargain time at the Citrus County Animal Shelter. In honor of Independence Day, all dogs can be adopted for a fee of $17.76. The preowned cat special offer of $14 for the first cat and $7 for the second and subsequent cats has been extended through today. Ordinarily, the fee for dogs is $60 and $35 for cats. In addition, adopters need to buy a $5 county license. The discount for the dog adoption fee is being absorbed by Adopt A Rescued Pet, while the cat adoption fee has been subsidized by Friends of Citrus County Animal Services. The shelter is bursting at the seams, with more than 100 of each, cats and dogs, posted on its website that need a furever home. Our kennels are filled to overcapacity and animals continue to come in at an alarming rate, said Billie Lombardo, volunteer coordinator. Both dogs and cats need to find immediate homes, either through fostering or adoption. Its been a real push lately, with strays coming in or surrenders, said Heidi Blanchette, Animal Services interim acting director. In the midst of the canine crowd, with two dogs in each kennel, Gabby, a 3-year-old terrier and pit bull mix, needs the seclusion of a maternity home. If somebody wanted to adopt her, they could go through the adoption process, Blanchette said. If an adopter goes in today to adopt Gabby, the special offer fee of $17.76 will apply for the mother and unborn pups. Gabby, who is brindle in color, weighs about 48 pounds. A new owner would need to have her spayed after the pups are born. That would be included in the adoption fee. No one knows how far along in her pregnancy Gabby is. The duration of a dogs pregnancy can fall in the range of 58 to 68 days. In the meantime if Gabby is not adopted, Blanchette would like to find foster care for the dog, but the person would need to have completed a twohour foster training session, which will not be offered again until July 30. To sign up, call or email Billie Lombardo at 352746-8408 or Billie.lombardo@ bocc.citrus.fl.us. With so many animals, extra human hands are appreciated. Potential volunteers can apply by submitting a completed application that is available on www.citruscritters.com, scroll down and click on Volunteering on the right or they can go to the shelter at 4030 S. Airport Road, Inverness, and fill out an application in person during office hours. The office hours for adoptions are as follows: Monday closed; Tuesday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday and holidays Closed.

The San Jose, California, man fell far short of his record last year of 69 dogs and buns, but he still easily beat second-place finisher Matt Stonie, also of San Jose, who downed just 56. Chestnut, 30, took a quick timeout before the annual Nathans Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island to make it official with his longtime girlfriend, Neslie Ricasa who is also a competitive eater.

Cumias remarks and postings, including tweets and retweets that were degrading to women, were abhorrent to SiriusXM, its spokesman Patrick Reilly said Friday. The shock jock was fired late Thursday, Reilly said. Cumias response Friday on Twitter included an obscenity in relation to SiriusXM. He said he was fired over material that was not aired and was not illegal. Earlier this week, Cumia posted tweets and photos about what he said was an attack on him as he took photos in Times Square. He said a woman, angered at being photographed, called him a white mother (expletive) and then repeatedly punched him. He said he defended himself without hitting back. In subsequent tweets about the confrontation, Cumia let loose a string of profanity and insults against the black woman, including describing her as pig face worthless and using an anti-female expletive. This was an animal. I shoulda smashed its face, he wrote. In later tweets, after being condemned as a racist in some Twitter postings, Cumia said he was the victim and was being unfairly derided over his views of violence in the black community. Asked by one Twitter poster if he had reported the attack to authorities, Cumia responded that he could take punches without wasting the polices time.Clinton book sells 26,000 copies in its third weekNEW YORK Hillary Rodham Clintons book Hard Choices is on track to be one of the years top nonfiction books despite another slip in sales.

Its her fourth time participating in the gathering, she said earlier this week as she listened to friends strum a guitar and sing along to a Cee-Lo Green song. The prayer is one of her favorite parts of the gathering, she said. Authorities said its not all peace and quiet on the mountain: On the eve of the celebration, they arrested 18 people suspected of crimes ranging from drug possession to grabbing the reins and bridle of an officers horse. Others were arrested in connection with shoplifting, drunken driving and public urination, Wasatch County Sheriffs Chief Dep. Jared Rigby said in an email statement. The gathering has rankled nerves this month in neighboring Heber City, overloading the local jail with people charged with misdemeanors, officials said. A roving federal court room also rolled up to a meadow about a mile away from the expansive campsite. A judge processed the charges that included drug possession. Last year, the gathering drew 10,000 to Montana, where officials put together a list of advice for other forest service workers policing the gathering in future years. In the last two weeks, police have made about 65 arrests at the Utah gathering. The group was originally formed in the wake of the Vietnam War. Its creed revolves around nonviolence, and it has convened every year since 1972. No official leaders head the group, but members refer to organizers as focalizers. Most defer to a council of elders, who set guidelines and urge members to avoid drinking alcohol on the vast campsite.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, JULY5, 2014 A5 000IPHU Contact: Citrus County Mosquito Control District www.citrusmosquito.org 352-527-7478 MOSQUITOES? 776 N.

Horns son Marlen said his father died Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia, after a brief illness. He declined to provide further details. Horns career spanned five decades, 50 albums and five Grammy nominations. He played the flute, clarinet and saxophone in concert tours and recording sessions with such artists as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington and Chico Hamilton. His album Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts won Grammys in 1966 for best original jazz composition and photographic cover album. Horn studied transcendental meditation alongside the Beatles with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Horns albums Inside the Taj Mahal and Inside the Great Pyramid laid the groundwork for the New Age music genre and earned him the nickname Father of New Age Music.

DeathELSEWHERE From wire reports Billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife dies Associated PressPITTSBURGH Richard Mellon Scaife, the billionaire heir to the Mellon banking and oil fortune and a newspaper publisher who funded libertarian and conservative causes and various projects to discredit President Bill Clinton, has died. He was 82. Scaife died early Friday at his home, his newspaper, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reported. Scaifes death comes less than two months after he announced in a first-person, front-page story in hisPittsburgh Tribune-Reviewthat he had an untreatable form of cancer. Some who dislike me may rejoice at the news, wrote Scaife, who acknowledged making political and other enemies. Naturally, I cant share their enthusiasm. He was the grand-nephew of Andrew Mellon, a banker and secretary of the Treasury who was involved with some of the biggest industrial companies of the early 20th century. Forbes magazine estimated Scaifes net worth in 2013 at $1.4 billion. The intensely private Scaife became widely known in the 1990s when first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton said her husband was being attacked by a vast right-wing conspiracy. White House staffers and other supporters suggested Scaife was playing a central role in the attack. Several foundations controlled by Scaife gave millions of dollars to organizations run by critics of Clinton, including $1.7 million for a project at the conservative American Spectator magazine to dig up information about his role in the Whitewater real estate scandal. Scaife rarely gave interviews, but in a sit-down with George magazine editor John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1998, he called President Clinton an embarrassment. In the interview, Scaife denied that his money helped support an effort to hurt the president, but he suggested Clinton might be linked to the deaths of dozens of administration officials and associates, including White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster and onetime Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. Fosters death was determined to be a suicide; Brown died in a plane crash. Scaife also accused Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel whose investigation led to Clintons impeachment in the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, to be a mole working for the Democrats. Scaifes stance toward the Clintons softened years later. In an interview published in early 2008, he told Vanity Fair magazine he and the former president had a very pleasant lunch the previous summer, and I never met such a charismatic man in my whole life. Clinton gave Scaife an autographed copy of his book, and Scaife said he later sent $100,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative. (Scaife also said philandering is something that Bill Clinton and I have in common.) Scaifes newspaper also endorsed Hillary Rodham Clintons bid for president in 2008. Despite funding many causes dear to conservatives, Scaife was libertarian on many social issues. He supported Planned Parenthood and abortion rights, supported legalizing same-sex marriage and marijuana, and opposed the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Scaife bought the TribuneReviewin suburban Pittsburgh in 1969, using its editorial pages to trumpet his views. I fell in love with newspapers as a boy, when my father bought me editions from around the country and abroad, Scaife told readers in the column announcing his cancer diagnosis. The day I became a newspaper publisher, buying theTribune-Review, remains one of the proudest, happiest moments of my life. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett said in a statement Friday that Scaifes passing marks the departure of a man whose vision and generosity shaped the citys progress and our nations course. He said his contributions helped to preserve Pittsburghs landmarks. Corbett also cited Scaifes investment in think tanks that he said reshaped our nations political dialogue and delivered the opening salvos in the Reagan revolution, replacing tired nostrums with vigorous new ideas for progress. Scaife was a longtime supporter of Republicans, backing presidential candidate Barry Goldwater in 1964 and heavily funding the 1968 campaign of Richard Nixon. In 1972, Scaife donated $1 million to Nixon in 334 separate checks to avoid paying gift taxes. After The Associated Press wrote a story about the money, Scaife insisted theTribune-Review get rid of its AP service. He ordered us to come in and take out the wire machines that night, Pat Minarcin, then APs Pittsburgh bureau chief, told The Wall Street Journalfor a 1995 story. Scaife also made headlines in recent years during a bitter divorce battle with Margaret Ritchie Battle Scaife, his second wife. The divorce was finalized in 2012. His first marriage, to Frances Gilmore Scaife, also ended in divorce. A Pittsburgh native, Richard Mellon Scaife was born in 1932, the son of Sarah Cordelia Mellon and Alan Magee Scaife. His mother was an alcoholic, and his upbringing has been described as cold and unhappy. He and his sister were raised by nannies. He went to Yale but was expelled during his freshman year after a he rolled a beer keg down a flight of stairs, breaking the legs of a classmate, according to a 1999 story inThe Washington Post. Scaife admitted to becoming an alcoholic, and he had a reputation for having a fiery temper. He reportedly quit drinking in 1990 after going to the Betty Ford Clinic. The Tribune-Reviewreported Scaife is survived by a daughter, Jennie K. Scaife, a son, David N. Scaife, a daughter-in-law, Sara Scaife; and two grandchildren.

OPINION Page A6SATURDAY, JULY 5, 2014 Beyond the glory of revolutionThis is in response to Mary B. Gregorys letter of June 3, 2014, Will Cuba Abandon its Freedoms. Its unfortunate shes based her opinions on a one-week visit to Cuba in 2004. Fact: Cuba had an excellent education system prior to the revolution. There was also no need to pick potatoes and other vegetables as a requirement to continue their education, like they do now. I know this to be true because I was one of the regular, ordinary Cubans there before the revolution and have visited twice recently since I left at 26 years old in 1961. Fact: Cuba had excellent health care before the revolution. You could go to the hospital and get the best specialist at no cost. Maybe in the whole week she visited Cuba, Ms Gregory didnt have time to inspect the current condition of the clinics, hospitals, etc. Most likely, she took what she heard from the regular people for granted. Fact: Before the revolution, Cubans could leave the country freely and visit any place in the world they chose and then return to resume their daily lives. Does Ms Gregory realize that for the past 50 years (since the beginning of the revolution) young Cubans are restricted from traveling abroad unless their destination is a communist/socialist country? I would like to know what kind of freedom Ms Gregory is talking about. I suggest she visit Key West to view the exhibit of countless makeshift vessels employed by regular Cubans, risking their lives (and often losing them) to flee their country for freedom in the U.S. The high-ranking officials conveniently left via airliner. Ms Gregory points out that Charlie Crist wants to meet with regular Cubans, not bureaucrats but then states its unlikely hell be able to do so. So, according to Ms. Gregory, she was able to meet with ordinary Cubans but Crist, a high-profile politico, will be unable to do so? With all due respect, Ms. Gregory, please acquire some knowledge of Cubas history and living standards in place prior to the revolution. You may change your opinion as to the glories of the revolution.E.D. Garcia Homosassa DOUGLASCOHNANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTON The nationwide battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party continues unabated. Moderate Sen. Thad Cochran defeated a Tea Party challenger in Mississippi, but Rep. Eric Cantor, himself a non-moderate conservative, was defeated by a more conservative Tea Party challenger in Virginia. Now, Virginias Republican-controlled House of Delegates, dominated by the partys conservative wing, continues to block the expansion of Medicaid, knowing they will be denying health coverage to 400,000 Virginians, including veterans and the disabled. Virginia is whats known as a donor state, routinely sending more to the federal government than it gets back. The impasse over expanding Medicaid makes the gap even bigger. You dont even have to count the lost health and wellbeing for people denied coverage to see the folly of the states Republican representatives. The feds will pay the entire cost for the first several years, and then upwards of 90 percent after that. Its a no-brainer, and the only reason Republicans are standing in the way is ideology. They say its because they dont trust the federal government to deliver on its promise, and fear theyll be left holding the bag. But that fear has proved groundless with other social safety net programs, like Medicare and Social Security, so the impasse is really purely ideological. If anyone can bridge the gap, its Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. A moderate, business-oriented Democrat, who knows how the game is played, and who has worked at the nexus of money and politics his entire career. One of Bill Clintons closest friends, he raised millions for Democrats and is a multi-millionaire himself. Hes been so successful at leveraging power, politics and money, hes a triple threat, and hes in a real standoff with the GOP Although Virginia is regarded as a purple state, and the top three elected officials are all Democrats, pockets of the state are deep red. The surprise defeat of Majority Leader Eric Cantor at the hands of a Tea Party-backed college professor has left Republicans even more frightened of anything that might label them moderate. A betting person would put his or her money on McAuliffe to devise a way around the GOP to expand Medicaid and do whats right for the citizens of Virginia. Hes got just one term in office; Virginia governors cant run for reelection, at least not consecutively. McAuliffe is clever, and hes determined to keep his campaign promise. He ran on a commitment to expand Medicaid, and hes looking at ways he can do that legally if not legislatively. Its not an ideological thing for McAuliffe, hes happy to change the name and expand coverage on Republican terms if thats what it takes. In Kentucky, they call the program Kynect. Virginia could play with the name too, take away any connection to Obamacare, call it GOPcare; maybe that will work. The Richmond TimesDispatchreported that Republicans sought access to McAuliffes suite in the state capitol on Fathers Day Sunday so they could drop off a copy of the state budget bill. Why the rush? Under state law, the governor has just seven days to respond and perhaps figure a way to get Medicaid into the package. Slipping the bill into McAuliffes deserted office on a Sunday crunched the time, making an already difficult decision tougher. According to an account inThe Washington Post, Republican House Speaker William J. Howell called the chief of Capitol Police away from his Fathers Day festivities to escort House staffers into McAuliffes private office suite. It was all perfectly legal, just highly unusual. Earlier this month, a Democratic state senator resigned to take a job on a commission, effectively handing control of the Virginia Senate to the Republicans. The former lawmaker has since declined the commission job, but the FBI is investigating. And all this is to deny health coverage to people who need it. Go figure. There are no grades of vanity, there are only grades of ability in concealing it.Mark Twain, Notebook (1935) The GOPs nationwide civil war continues in Virginia CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

While free enterprise is fundamental to the American way, it comes with rules and regulations. The boards 4-1 ruling against revising the code to allow more latitude for the temporary tent sales reflects a desire to have a balanced playing field for local auto dealerships. Those dealerships own real estate, provide essential infrastructure, contribute to the tax base, employ local residents and provide customer service to those with whom they do business. While the issue can be viewed from a broad perspective, at the center is a local commercial Realtor who owns property near Lowes and Olive Garden west of Inverness. At one time, having out-of-county auto dealers setting up for temporary sales on her property was allowed. County code, however, was changed to require such sales be situated on acreage owned by a like business aka car dealerships. The request to revise the code to allow offsite retail sales events stems primarily from that Realtors desire to use her property for auto tent sales. Clearly, however, other property owners could benefit should the rules be eased. Understandably, a smattering of representatives from local car dealerships, chamber of commerce officials and a representative from the Citrus County Auto Dealers Association were on hand to discourage the easing of the county code. Reasons ranged from concern over fly-by-night sales outfits and customer-service fears, to the impact on brickand-mortar operations, to infrastructure impacts such as arterial and collector roads. While one commissioner suggested the auto dealer representatives at the meeting suck it up and relent to competition from those who sell cars from temporary tents, he failed to acknowledge that those present are stalwart competitors and not only that, but Citrus County taxpayers and employers. In the end, crafting county code for a very selective purpose could have opened Pandoras Box. The commission made the right decision. THE ISSUE:Tent sales.OUR OPINION:Commission decision makes sense.

Just because its legal to allow massive groundwater pumping and distant delivery doesnt make it ethical. Remember at voting time that the Republicancontrolled Florida House and Speaker Bill Weatherford, responding to giant agricultural lobbies, wouldnt even consider bringing a springs restoration bill to a vote this year.

The Gutter Coast.EMTs capable and gentleLast month my wife had both knees replaced. She has since fallen twice. We called 911 both times. Two EMTs arrived promptly. They were professional, knowledgeable and very courteous. They very gently picked my wife up from the floor. They were capable and gentle. These men were on duty the evening of June 27. People like this make it safer to live in Inverness. God bless them both and all those who do this tough job. Thank you, thank you. Thanks for the tipId like to thank Nancy Kennedy for the write-up she did on the Bookaneeers Used Book Store. I went up there that same day to see what this woman had there and it was fantastic. If youre like me and go through three books a week, its worth a trip to Beverly Hills to do business there. I bought a bunch of paperback books for 10 cents each, but there are others for more than that in both paper and hardcovers. You go from room to room where she has everything sorted by their category. I used to waste money on gas riding around looking for books at yard sales. But now Ill just drive up there when Im getting low on reading material.Invisible BogeymenSunday, June 29s Chronicle Opinion section, there we have Ms. Spivey going on and on about boogeymen jumping out of trees and these dangerous noodle-boarders and things like that. She should give it a rest. People are better educated and go out of their way to make sure that when theyre out there, that other people follow the rules too. And as far as her wanting to cut the springs off; no, you dont own it, you know, and it should be accessible to the public. And with the greater knowledge and the greater education, things are just fine. Shes just seeing bogeymen that arent there.Hope water rates dont riseIm just calling about these new high-tech water meters that the city installed in parts of the Highlands here.

Advocate asks Duke to refund $54 millionTALLAHASSEE Floridas consumer advocate is asking state regulators to require Duke Energy to refund $54 million the utility collected from rate payers for a failed nuclear power plant project in Levy County. The Office of Public Counsel on Wednesday filed a request with state regulators, asking them to require Duke to refund the money. Duke has sued contractor Westinghouse Electric Co. for failing to complete work on the failed $24.7 billion Levy nuclear project. The public counsels request is meant to ensure that any money won by Duke in that suit goes back to customers, who paid $54 million for the project. The Tampa Bay Times reported that Floridas Duke Energy customers are already paying $1.5 billion for the Levy project through electric rates, though the plant will never generate power.Man pleads guilty to rhino horn traffickingMIAMI A South Florida man has pleaded guilty to illegally trafficking in the horns of the black rhinoceros in violation of the Endangered Species Act. A federal judge is scheduled in September to sentence 76-year-old Gene Harris of Miami following his guilty plea this week. Harris could get up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. According to court records, Harris sold a variety of wildlife products, including taxidermy mounts. In 2011, he arranged for a customer in California to buy two black rhinoceros horns from a seller in Phoenix, Arizona, for $60,000. Court documents show Harris was paid a $10,000 finders fee. Black rhinoceros horns are prized commodities in many Asian countries, where they are turned into ornamental carvings and other items.Arrests made in $2 million baby formula theft ringORLANDO Three Florida women have been charged with running a $2 million baby formula theft ring. Sheriffs officials in Brevard and Pinellas counties said the women stole large quantities of baby formula and shipped them to New York, Wisconsin and California. They said the scheme generated $2 million. Alicia Tondreau-Leve, Guilyanna Guzman and Alexis Lyn Dattadeen are charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering, which is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.420 veterans honored by Scott PENSACOLA More than 400 more Florida veterans have received honors from Gov. Rick Scott. The governor held ceremonies Thursday in Pensacola and Panama City as part of a week of events honoring veterans in the lead-up to the Fourth of July. In Pensacola, 227 veterans were given the Governors Veterans Service Award in an event at the headquarters of the 153rd Cavalry. In Panama City, 193 veterans received the award at the headquarters of the 1-153rd Cavalry. Scott held similar ceremonies earlier this week in West Palm Beach, Orlando and Jacksonville.Prosthetist offers artificial eye to mauled girlNAPLES A southwest Florida prosthetist is offering to provide an artificial eye to a 3-year-old Mississippi girl mauled by her grandfathers pit bulls. Victoria Wilcher is scheduled to fly to Naples next week for a preliminary examination with Raymond E. Peters of the Center for Custom Prosthetics. Peters has been making artificial eyes for 50 years. This child has a high hill to climb, he told the Naples Daily News. Peters will make a mold for a custom-fitted eye, which a Las Vegas physician will attach in a later surgery, and he will paint the artificial eyes iris by hand. Children such as Victoria need a few fittings a year because theyre growing and their faces can become distorted if the molds dont keep pace with their growth, Peters said. An artificial eye can cost up to $4,500. These products can make a person whole again. They can walk out in public and not hang their heads, Peters said. Victoria was mauled by three pit bulls in April at her grandfathers home. She lost her right eye and suffered multiple facial fractures. Victorias family has said the girl was asked to leave a KFC restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi, because her scars disturbed customers. The restaurant chain said an investigation concluded there was no proof that any employee asked her to leave, but it did pledge $30,000 to help pay Victorias medical bills.State issues nine demands to oil companyFORT MYERS The state is giving an oil company drilling in southwest Florida two weeks to comply with nine demands or face penalties. Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Herschel Vinyard issued a letter late Thursday to Texas-based Dan A. Hughes Co. outlining steps the drilling company needs to take to restore public confidence in its activities in Collier County. Among other demands, the state wants the company to hold three public meetings to discuss present and future operations and to allow media access to operations to ensure that previous violations are not continuing. Vinyard also wants revisions for a state-required groundwater monitoring plan and frequent status reports on safety mechanisms. A message left Friday at the companys Beeville, Texas, headquarters for spokesman David Blackmon was not immediately returned. An attorney for the family said Wednesday that they stand by their claim and want the donation given to the foundation of the Las Vegas doctor who will work on her face. Peters said the dispute hasnt deterred him from wanting to help Victoria. Ive always been a giver, a helper, he said. You get more gratification out of that than taking.Audubon urges people to protect beach birdsSIESTA KEY Audubon Florida is asking beach-going Floridians to help protect coastal birds by leaving personal fireworks at home and attending official displays instead on this holiday weekend. Julie Wraithmell, Audubon Floridas Director of Wildlife Conservation, said large and small fireworks explosions are especially frightening to coastal birds and their dependent chicks. Birdwatchers said two recent incidents highlight the need for increased awareness of Floridas coastal nesting birds. In June, a Least Tern colony was destroyed by visitors with unleashed dogs on Disappearing Island near New Smyrna Beach. Also in June, Snowy Plover, Black Skimmer and Least Tern nests were crushed by a motorcycle rider that ignored signs on Siesta Key. Wraithmell said folks on the beach should respect posted areas, even if they dont see birds.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, JULY5, 2014 A7 5987 S.

The goal for the inmates serving short-term county sentences was to ease their transition back into the community by learning patience and coping skills and by giving them responsibility and accountability The director of the sheriffs department of corrections told The Florida Times-Unionthat the dogs reduced stress for both inmates and officers. Dogs open everybody up, said Tara Wildes. This is bringing about positive change ... If youre going to change, you have to be open. After temperament evaluations, each dog was matched with an inmate, with shy dogs put with outgoing inmates and enthusiastic dogs going to quiet inmates. The inmates taught the dogs to follow commands such as properly walking on a leash. The dogs stayed with the inmates at all times, sleeping in kennels beside their beds. It changed my whole outlook on life, said James Mitz, who is serving a year for battery.

Police say mom kills kindergarten teacher in classPARIS Police said the mother of a pupil at a French pre-school stabbed a teacher to death in front of her class Friday, the last day of the school year. French President Francois Hollande expressed outrage at this abominable drama and sent the education minister to the school in Albi in southern France. A police official in Albi said the mother attacked the teacher Friday morning at the Edouard Herriot pre-school. The official would not comment on possible reasons for the attack. The teacher was leading a class of 5and 6-yearolds, according to the Albi mayors office. Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the teacher was 34 years old. RTL radio reported that the mother previously had problems with the police after allegedly abandoning her 15-year-old child earlier this year and failing to help police search for the child.Ukraine claims winning ground in rebellious eastKIEV, Ukraine Fighting in eastern Ukraine left at least nine Ukrainian soldiers dead Friday, as government troops pressed their offensive against pro-Russian insurgents using heavy artillery and combat jets and prospects of a truce appeared dim. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Ukraine was ready to conduct another round of talks between representatives from Ukraine, Russia and the rebels today, but didnt name their venue. Two previous rounds of such negotiations held during a 10-day cease-fire have yielded no visible progress, but they brought the warring parties together for the first time.Clashes break out at Palestinian funeralJERUSALEM Israeli police clashed with rockthrowing Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem on Friday as thousands mourned at the funeral for an Arab teen who Palestinians say was killed by Israeli extremists in a revenge attack. Palestinian militants, meanwhile, fired rockets and mortars from the Gaza Strip into Israel, and the Jewish state later carried out several airstrikes on what it described as Hamas terror targets in Gaza. There were no immediate reports of casualties. Also, the Israeli military said its troops opened fire after spotting two Palestinians planting explosives near the Gaza border fence. During the procession, scores of masked Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli police on duty nearby, and they responded with stun grenades, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. He said more than 2,000 people attended the funeral. World BRIEFS From wire reports Germany summons US envoy over spy case German man arrested Wednesday Associated PressBERLIN Germany summoned the U.S. ambassador in Berlin on Friday following the arrest of a man reported to have spied for the United States, heightening friction between the two countries over alleged U.S. eavesdropping in Germany. U.S. Ambassador John B. Emerson was called in in connection with an investigation by the federal prosecutor, the German Foreign Ministry said in a statement. The U.S. envoy was asked to help in the swift clarification of the case, it added. Federal prosecutors say a 31-year-old German man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of spying for foreign intelligence services. They did not identify the suspect or the intelligence services. German government spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters that Chancellor Angela Merkel been personally informed of the arrest. He declined to comment on reports by Der Spiegel magazine and the dailySueddeutsche Zeitungthat the man worked for Germanys foreign intelligence service, known by its German acronym BND. The newspapers, which didnt identify their sources, said the man was suspected of passing on information about a German parliamentary committee investigating the activities of U.S. and other intelligence agencies in Germany. He claimed to have worked with U.S. intelligence since 2012, they reported. Seibert said members of the parliamentary panel had also been informed of the arrest. Reports that the National Security Agency spied on German citizens, including on Merkels cellphone, have caused friction between Berlin and Washington since they were first published last year, based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Martina Renner, a member of the opposition Left Party on the parliamentary panel, said the case indicated that anyone who examined Snowdens revelations in detail was subject to scrutiny by U.S. intelligence agencies. Her panel heard testimony Thursday from two former NSA employees, Thomas Drake and William Binney. If the media reports (about the case) are confirmed then there cant just be a legal response, there also has to be a political response, she said. In his testimony, Drake claimed that cooperation between the NSA and Germanys BND greatly increased after the 9/11 terror attacks in the United States. He described the German spy agency as an appendage of the NSA. Seibert said Merkel discussed foreign policy matters in a telephone conversation with President Barack Obama late Thursday. He said the conversation focused on Ukraine but wouldnt say whether the arrest was also discussed. The U.S. National Security Council declined to comment Friday and BND didnt immediately return a call seeking comment. Associated PressJohn David Dowdle holds 23-month-old Blakely Dowdle as she laughs Friday while being sprayed with water by the Germantown Fire Department during the Poplar Estates Fourth of July parade in Germantown, Tenn. Fireworks, hurricane and music help mark nations 238th birthday Associated PressThe United States marks 238 years as an independent nation as it celebrates the Fourth of July with fireworks, food and music. Nature and politics also play a role this year, with Hurricane Arthur crashing holiday parties along the East Coast and subdued festivities in Moscow amid growing anti-American sentiment over the crisis in Ukraine. Here are some highlights of Independence Day celebrations across the globe:FIRE IN THE SKYThe Macys Fourth of July fireworks show in New York City is the nations largest. Macys says more than 1,600 shells will be launched per minute during the 25-minute display over the East River. Among the celebrities performing at the event are the Zac Brown Band, Enrique Iglesias and Ariana Grande. Other major fireworks shows are being held in Chicago on Lake Michigan and in San Francisco over the bay.WEATHER WORRIESThe first hurricane of the season, Arthur, forced many East Coast cities to switch the dates of their Fourth of July celebrations. Boston officials moved the annual Boston Pops July 4 concert and fireworks from Friday to Thursday. Then they cut short the concerts so the fireworks could begin. Shortly after the dazzling display thundered to a close, a drenching rain began falling. Meanwhile, several cities in Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey moved their fireworks shows to either Saturday or Sunday. Augusta, Maine, moved its fireworks to Aug. 2. When it crossed North Carolinas Outer Banks late Thursday, Arthur narrowly missed becoming the first hurricane to make landfall on July Fourth, according to National Hurricane Center research that dates to the 1850s. In Phoenix, the first dust storm of the summer arrived with blinding winds that forced the cancellation of holiday plans, knocked out power and grounded flights.INSPIRING MUSICIn Washington, composer John Williams is to debut a new arrangement of The StarSpangled Banner featuring choirs, trumpets, an orchestra and cannons on the National Mall. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the national anthem. Francis Scott Key was inspired by the sight of the flag over Baltimores Fort McHenry in September 1814 after a 25-hour British bombardment. Thousands of people celebrated the Fourth in the nations capital under clear skies, despite initial fears rain could ruin their fun. Visitors to the Mall gazed at the White House and the Washington Monument and strolled through the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, which featured food, music and cultural demonstrations.INDEPENDENCE HALLVice President Joe Biden, addressing the annual Celebration of Freedom ceremony at Independence Hall, said the lessons of the civil rights movement show that the struggle for freedom that began in Philadelphia more than two centuries ago is not over.EX-PATS IN CANADAJulie Buchanan, treasurer of Democrats Abroad, planned to celebrate at a Toronto bar with red, white and blue sparklers, about 125 of her American ex-pat friends, and life-size cut-outs of President Barack Obama and the first lady. We really miss the patriotism of America; so many of us crave that sense of pride and camaraderie from back home, said Buchanan, an Alabama native who moved to Toronto from Memphis, Tennessee, in 2000.MOSCOW PARTIESThe national anthems of both Russia and the United States played at the traditional July 4 garden party held at the stately residence of the American ambassador in Moscow. But far fewer Russians than usual came, either because they were unwilling to be seen associating with American diplomats or because their anti-American statements had gotten them scratched off of the guest list.

Djokovic, Federer to final Old guard tops new in Wimbledon semifinals Associated PressLONDON Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic will meet for the Wimbledon title after the old guard held off the new in the semifinals Friday at the All England Club. Federer, chasing his record eighth Wimbledon championship, swept past Canadas Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 to reach his 25th Grand Slam final. Federer, who owns 17 major titles, broke once in each set and won 61 of 80 points on serve to make it back to a Slam final for the first time since winning Wimbledon in 2012. The top-seeded Djokovic ran off six of the final seven points in the tiebreaker to beat Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (7) to advance to his third Wimbledon final in four years. Its also Djokovics 14th Grand Slam final and 10th in his last 13 majors. Djokovic won the 2011 Wimbledon title and lost in last years final to Andy Murray. The 32-year-old Federer will be playing in his ninth Wimbledon final on Sunday. If he wins, he will hold the outright record for mens titles, which he currently shares at seven with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw. Federer would also become the oldest mens Wimbledon champion since the Open era began in 1968. The Swiss great has slipped in the rankings the past two years and failed to get to any Grand Slam finals. This could represent his best chance for another major title. Federer, who has lost only one set and been broken just once the whole tournament, was asked how Back to coaching hoops Rob McDougal named coach for Seven Rivers boysSEANARNOLD CorrespondentIt all added up to the perfect equation for Rob McDougal. The Crystal River High School algebra teacher and former girls soccer coach was looking to join Seven Rivers Christian School, where his three daughters attend, and he wanted to get back into coaching basketball. When longtime Warrior boys basketball coach Jim Ervin stepped down at the end of the season, the perfect opportunity arose for McDougal, leading to his recently being named the new varsity boys basketball coach at Seven Rivers, where he is also set to teach math starting this fall. McDougal takes over a program that posted a 212-93 record in 14 seasons under Ervin. It reached the Class 1A State Regional Finals in 2011, before missing the state playoffs the last two seasons at the Class 2A level. It returns just two players from last years 6-12 squad. I was just so impressed by the school, said McDougal, who celebrated his 15-year wedding anniversary with his wife Jennifer the week of his hiring. The people there work hard and have a lot of integrity, and I was moved by the way the school was affecting my kids. Thats when I started talking with (Head of School) Dana James, and let him know if the opportunity presented itself Id love to be a part of the school. As I was talking to Dana about teaching there, he mentioned that their boys basketball position was also going to be available because Coach Ervin had stepped down. I started thinking along those lines, talked with my wife, and the timing felt right to get back into basketball. After some good discussions with (Athletic Director) Gary Dreyer, he thought it was a good fit. Before moving to Florida 12 years ago, McDougal coached boys basketball at Tri-County See HOOPS/ Page B3 Associated PressRoger Federer plays a return Friday to Milos Raonic during their mens singles semifinal match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London.

Brazil won 2-1 and will face Germany next week in the semifinals. Associated PressFORTALEZA, Brazil Brazil made its way into the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 12 years, with goals coming from defenders Thiago Silva and David Luiz in a 2-1 win over Colombia on Friday. Brazil, which had been eliminated in the quarterfinals at the last two World Cups, will next play Germany on Tuesday in Belo Horizonte. Silva gave Brazil the lead in the seventh minute, scoring with his left knee after a corner from Neymar passed through the Colombian defense. He celebrated the goal by pointing to the emblem on his jersey and shouting, This is Brazil, this is Brazil. Luiz added the second from a free kick in the 69th, sending a swerving long-range shot off the side of his foot into the top of the net. Colombia got one back in the 80th. James Rodriguez scored his tournamentleading sixth goal from the penalty spot after Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar brought down substitute Carlos Bacca inside the area. Rodriguez tried to control the pace of the match at the Arena Castelao, but it was Brazil that created most of the scoring chances as Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina had to make a series of saves in the first half alone. The Colombians tried to pressure in the end after Rodriguezs penalty, but Brazil held on with tough defending. There was a lot of talk about Rodriguez and Neymar before the match, but the 22-year-old forwards didnt really live up to expectations. Rodriguez scored the late penalty but was otherwise mostly ineffective, as was Neymar before he left on a stretcher after being hit on the back late in the match. Silva was the crucial player for Brazil, See POWERS/ Page B3
Associated PressDETROIT Evan Longoria homered, Ben Zobrist doubled twice and the Tampa Bay Rays finally broke through offensively against Detroit, beating the Tigers 6-3 on Friday night.

Tampa Bay had seven extra-base hits Friday, including a two-run triple by Sean Rodriguez in the sixth. Alex Cobb (4-6) allowed three runs and five hits in five-plus innings for the Rays, and their bullpen allowed only one baserunner. Brad Boxberger pitched two perfect innings of relief, Joel Peralta worked the eighth, and Jake McGee finished for his fourth save. Detroits Drew Smyly (4-8) allowed five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. There were three hit batsmen, and umpires warned both benches in the sixth. After the warnings, Rays manager Joe Maddon argued and was ejected.AMERICAN LEAGUE Yankees6, Twins 5MINNEAPOLIS Brian Roberts hit three doubles and a triple, and the New YorkYankees used their bullpen to hang on for a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins. David Huff (2-0) struck out three in three perfect innings of relief for the victory after starter Chase Whitley faltered, and Jacoby Ellsbury hit a tworun single in the second to finish off Twins starter Kyle Gibson (7-7).

Melky Cabrera couldnt corral Nick Puntos double with one out in the 12th inning, sending the Oakland Athletics to a 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Derek Norris was walked by Chad Jenkins (0-1) leading off the 12th inning. After Jed Lowrie lined out, Punto hit a slicing double down the line in left. Cabrera moved to his right to cut off the ball, which squirted by his glove for an error. Norris scored from first for an odd ending to a game highlighted by stellar pitching performances by starters Tommy Milone of Oakland and Marcus Stroman and both bullpens.White Sox 7, Mariners 1CHICAGO Jose Abreu hit his 27th home run, Chris Sale struck out a season-high 12 in a complete game and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 7-1.

Ventura allowed six hits and struck out four in the longest outing of his career. Salvador Perez and Christian Colon, making his first major-league start, had three hits apiece while Lorenzo Cain snapped an 0 for 11 skid with an RBI single in the third and a run-scoring double in the fifth.NATIONAL LEAGUE Pirates 8, Phillies 2PITTSBURGH Andrew McCutchen went 4 for 5 and finished a home run short of a cycle, and Jordy Mercer drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-2 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies. Mercer had two of Pittsburghs 13 hits, and each of the Pirates eight position players who started the game had at least one. Pittsburgh jumped on starter Roberto Hernandez in the first inning and scored four runs on five hits and sent nine men to the plate. All the runs scored with two outs against Hernandez, who threw 45 pitches in his inning.Reds 4, Brewers 2CINCINNATI Alfredo Simon moved into a tie for the National League lead with his 11th win and Billy Hamilton homered as the Cincinnati Reds snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Skip Schumaker and Joey Votto had run-scoring doubles for the Reds, who were coming off being swept in a three-game series at San Diego.

The Central Division-leading Brewers dropped their fourth straight, matching their longest losing streak of the season.Cubs 7 Nationals 2WASHINGTON Justin Ruggiano homered for the second straight game for the Chicago Cubs, who used another solid outing from Jason Hammel to beat the Washington Nationals 7-2.

He has six hits and seven RBIs in his last two games. Chris Coghlan had two hits and scored three times as the Cubs collected 14 hits in their fourth consecutive victory. Hammel (8-5) gave up two runs in six-plus innings.Padres 2, Giants 0SAN DIEGO Eric Stults pitched seven strong innings to win for the first time in nearly two months and Alexi Amarista homered to lead the San Diego Padres to a 2-0 win over the San Francisco Giants. Stults (3-11), winless in his last nine starts, was victorious for the first time since a 9-3 victory over Miami on May 10. The lefty held the Giants to four hits with six strikeouts and two walks as he snapped a six-start losing streak. Matt Cain (1-7) pitched well but had little to show for it as he lost his fourth consecutive decision and is winless in seven starts. The Padres won their season-high fifth straight game as they faced the Giants for the first time since they were no-hit by Tim Lincecum on June 25 in San Francisco. Lincecum is scheduled to start on Sunday.Cardinals 3, Marlins 2ST. LOUIS Lance Lynn bounced back from his worst start of the season with 6 2/3 scoreless innings and the St. Louis Cardinals placed consecutive two-out RBI doubles just out of right fielder Giancarlo Stantons reach in a three-run sixth of a 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins. Stanton, who entered with an NLleading 21 homers and 61 RBIs, was 0 for 4. He punched the padded wall in frustration after his glove failed him for the second time, and Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi (5-4) also showed frustration when he slammed his glove into the dugout on his way off the field after the inning. The first four Marlins reached safely in the ninth before Trevor Rosenthal earned his 26th save in 29 chances. Christian Yelichs RBI single eluded a sliding Matt Holliday in left and Stanton walked with the bases loaded before Casey McGehee grounded into a game-ending double play.Braves 5, Diamondbacks 2ATLANTA Freddie Freeman drove in two runs, Ervin Santana won his second straight start, and the Atlanta Braves stretched their winning streak to eight games with a 5-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE much it would mean to lift the Wimbledon trophy once more. A lot, he said. I must say Im unbelievably proud every time I can walk the grounds here and keep on playing this tournament. I know I dont have 10 left, so Ill try to enjoy it as much as I can. Clearly, the first one was unbelievably special in 2003. And that I was able to play so successful for so many years here at Wimbledon has been an unbelievable thrill and that I get another chance to go through these kind of emotions is great. Federers dominance against the eighth-seeded Raonic was total. Raonic, the first Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam semifinal, had 17 aces but also had four double faults and conceded seven break points. Federer was clinical throughout and saved the only break point he faced. Federer holds a career 18-16 advantage against Djokovic, but this will be only their second meeting in a major final. Federer beat him for the U.S. Open title in 2007. Overall, Federer has a 6-5 edge in Grand Slam matches. Theyve faced each other only once before at Wimbledon, with Federer winning in four sets in the 2012 semifinals. The final matchup means that one of the so-called Big Four in mens tennis Federer, Nadal, Djokovic or Andy Murray will walk away with a Grand Slam trophy for the 36th time in 38 majors. One of the four has won Wimbledon title the past 11 years, seven for Federer. Djokovic, who has lost in his last two major finals and three of the past four, is going for his seventh Grand Slam title.

The center back headed Toni Kroos free kick in off the underside of the bar in the 13th minute in one of the few chances created in muggy conditions at Maracana stadium. POWERSContinued from Page B1 Regional Technical High School in Franklin, Mass., from 1998 to 2000, heading the varsity squad in 1999 and 2000. He was the girls soccer coach at Crystal River from 2003 to 2006, before going into business and then returning to CRHS as a teacher in 2011. With his three young daughters Maeve, Mia and Reese getting into soccer, McDougal, who played soccer in college, spent the last three years coaching competitive travel teams. Ive always coached my daughters, he said. I feel like theyve got a good foundation, and there are some good coaches in the area. So dads going to do what he really loves to do, and thats coach basketball. I think they know how much I love coaching. They like when Im Dad, when Im wishing them luck and cheering for them. Its not the same dynamic when youre their coach. Dreyer said McDougal, whos never coached at a school with fewer than 1,000 to 1,500 students, showed an understanding of the challenges of coaching at SRCS, where most student-athletes compete in multiple, overlapping sports. There were just 29 boys at the high school level during the most recent school year. He has a willingness to work within, for lack of a better term, the Seven Rivers system, Dreyer noted. When his first practice comes up in the last Monday of October, the majority of his players will be playing football for at least another week or two. You want to get going, jump right in and be prepared for your first game, but youre not going to have those kids to even shoot around. I was really impressed with his enthusiasm and his willingness to work within what were able to do at our school. He had already looked at videotape of our kids from last year. McDougal said conditioning will be a key priority for his program, especially given the likelihood of a smaller roster. A lot of your coaching style is predicated on the players that you have, he said. I want us to be great at the things we can control as a team. Those things are our conditioning, our effort and our team defense. When the ball leaves your hand, you cant ultimately control whether the shot goes in or not. But you can control how you take care of the defensive end and how you take care of the basketball. Were going to be in shape, were going to work hard on fundamentals and defense.

Billy Hurley III shot a 7-under 63 on Friday to take a onestroke lead after the second round of the Greenbrier Classic. Hurley played bogey-free in shooting his lowest score of the season. The former U.S. Navy officer says it was pretty cool that it occurred on Americas birthday. Hurley is at 9-under 131, a stroke ahead of Kevin Chappell and Chris Stroud. Chappell had a 65 and Stroud shot 66. Troy Matteson had a 61 to vault into fourth place at 7 under. He has made the cut in all five years of the Greenbrier Classic. Brice Garnett, Steve Stricker and Chris Kirk were 6 under. Garnett shot 66, Stricker 68 and Kirk 69. First-round leader Jonas Blixt, the defending champion, had three early bogeys and shot 73 to drop to 3 under. FedEx Cup points leader Jimmy Walker missed the cut.Kasey Kahne nips Smith at Daytona finish lineDAYTONA BEACH Kasey Kahne nipped Regan Smith at the Daytona International Speedway finish line Friday night for his first Nationwide Series victory since 2007. Kahne weaved his way through traffic during a two-lap overtime sprint to the finish, but didnt appear to be in the mix for a shot at the win as Smith pulled away from the pack. But as the field hurtled through the final turn, Kyle Larson jumped out of line and made it three-wide behind Smith. Kahne moved into the top lane and, using a push from Ryan Sieg, charged alongside Smith and beat him to the line. Smith, who won the season-opener at the track in February, wound up second. Sieg was a career-best third. It was Kahnes first Nationwide victory since 2007 at Bristol.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

On a Roll SEANARNOLD Correspondent Kevin Harrods No. 34 Modified Mini Stock wasnt even finished with tech inspection last Saturday before his team was contemplating a bid for three wins in a row in the class. Theres reason for optimism for the Harrod clan, even beyond his back-to-back wins in Mod Minis on June 14 and June 28. The 41year-old Inverness driver has prevailed in three features in three weeks, including his June 21 win in Dr. Shannon Kennedys No. 20, and hes posted four topthree finishes in five Mod Mini features this season. With a little help from his brother-in-law, shocks guru Rick Knecht, the recently-acquired green-and-black 34 is dialed in to excel on the turns, where Harrod prides himself in 4-cylinder stock racing We bought this car pretty much together and put a new Johnson motor in it, Harrod said in discussing the success of the first-year car. We came out here and the car didnt do bad, but then when (Knecht) built four new shocks for this thing it really came alive out here. The big thing with these cars is the handling getting them through these corners. You hear Rick Knechts name a lot out here. Hes the shock guyhe really is. It makes a world of difference on the handling out here on this track. With this short track and these 4-cylinders, you need all you can get. Outside of a couple years in a Sportsman, Harrod has spent most of his 20 years of racing in Minis and Mod Minis, where he secured a points titles at Citrus County Speedway in 2008 as well as one at Auburndale Speedway of Winter Haven in 2003. Hes been voted a Fan Favorite at Citrus, and has won his fair share of 50-lappers. The 4-cylinder is where its at for me, Harrod explained. Im not really a V8 driver. The corner speed is where its at in these little 4-cylinders, and thats my thing. We just really like the 4-cylinder. After 19 years, I really know them. He says his recent successful foray into regular Minis was a one-off deal. Kennedy is a friend and sponsor, through his Floral City Animal Clinic, as well as competitor of Harrods. After starting from the pole in the June 14 Mod Mini feature, Kennedy, in the No. 51, lost his lead to Harrod around lap six, eventually finishing second, while Harrod dominated the field for the victory. In the Mini Stock win, Harrod began the final lap even with Bill Ryan, another driver sponsored by Kennedys clinic. We had a lot of fun with (racing Kennedys No. 20), Harrod said. It was just a onetime thing. He left it and said get in it and go. I think hes selling that car. Harrod also gets sponsorship support from All About Septic and IRRU Family Social Club of Floral City, an establishment hes especially proud to be affiliated with due to its charity work. Theyre a club and bar, but they do a lot for families and battered children, Harrod said of IRRU. Thats where a lot of their money goes. Harrod and his wife Rita recently became proud godparents to their three-week-old greatniece Ryleigh Cate. His racing enterprise is, through and through, a family operation. My dad (Ron) was in racing, and he drove the pace car at Citrus for years, so weve always been into racing, Harrod said. If there was a race within a 100 miles, my momma was there, and we all went to it. My brother Michael helps me on the car constantly. My nephew Michael Darren was here (Saturday) helping us. My whole family gets into it. Tim Karagines helps me on the car all the time, he added. Harrods least favorite part about racing is what he calls the drama, which was fresh on Harrods mind after last Saturdays contentious Mod Mini feature, which saw Jason Reynolds get disqualified for hitting Richard Kuhns No. 47 after the race ended. Theres a lot (of drama) that goes with racing, Harrod said. I guess with anything you have to take the good with the bad. My favorite thing about racing is just going in circles. Mod Minis race again next Saturday, July 12. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentThe Citrus County Speedway celebrates Independence Day weekend with todays lineup of Non-Winged Sprints, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Three-Quarter Midgets, Hornets and a 50-lap Pure Stocks special. Pure Stocks begin qualifying at 5:30 p.m., and front gates open at 4 p.m. Sprint drivers will hold an autograph session during intermission, if weather permits.

After collecting three feature wins since the beginning of May, Sport Allen, of Pinellas Park, currently has the hot hand in Florida Sprints.

For the year at Citrus, Welter Sr. has tallied six top-three finishes, including a pair of wins.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, JULY 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 794604Sundays ClassifiedsAdvertising local job opportunities.APPLY NOW! RELIGION BRIEFS There is an old Jewish joke that goes: How did the first Jews come to America? The answer is yiddle by yiddle. Jokes aside, it has been 360 years since Jacob Barsimson, an Ashkenazi Jew, landed in what is now New York City. Barsimson, a trader from the Netherlands, is credited with meeting the boat carrying 23 of his coreligionists from Recife, Brazil, who came to the American shores seeking freedom from oppression in Brazil where the Inquisition had followed them from the Iberian Peninsula. The Inquisitions policies against Jews and the political climate of the day were the catalytic forces that led the small band to seek asylum in a country where they could practice their religion in safety and could participate as full citizens in the political affairs of the colony of New Amsterdam. Unfortunately, these 23 were not greeted warmly by the governor of New Amsterdam, Peter Stuyvesant. History has not painted Old Peg Leg (an allusion to his artificial wooden leg) as a very pleasant man. His cantankerous nature was well known and his dislike of the Jews was no secret. Escaping Catholicism led into becoming a member of the Dutch Reformed Church, a stipulation for citizenship in the New Amsterdam colony. It would seem that the refugees had gone out of the frying pan into the fire. Jacob Barsimson petitioned Stuyvesant for a plot of land for a burial ground. Jewish communities even before they build synagogues, purchase land for a cemetery as well as for building a mikveh, ritual bath. These acts are essential for setting up a Jewish community. The request was denied since the land was not needed immediately but after much prevail, notably from the Jews of Amsterdam, the request was granted. Still, the Jews were treated as separate citizens, unable to vote, hold public office, engage in retail, practice handicrafts, serve in the militia or hold public worship meetings and practice Judaism freely. Stuyvesant also made each male older than 16 and younger than 60 pay a tax of 65 stivers a month for exemption of guard duty. Jacob Barsimson then advocated that the Jews be allowed to serve in the militia to protect the walls of the colony from raiders. This was an important step in trying to become equal with their Christian neighbors. The Jewish settlers wished to become an active and contributing entity of the colony, not second-class citizens. Stuyvesant wanted to rid the Brazilian Jewish refugees from New Amsterdam; however, many Portuguese Jews who had arrived Holland in 1593 were escapees of the Inquisition and were also investors of the Dutch India Company which paid Stuyvesants salary, therefore under much pressure from these investors, the Jews were allowed to remain in the colony. In time, the Jews were allowed to stand guard duty beside their Christian neighbors and eventually became full citizens of New Amsterdam. Through the efforts of Barsimson and others, Jewish life in New Amsterdam flourished and the beginnings of American Jewry took root. When the British conquered New Amsterdam, the name was changed to New York and the Jews were granted British citizenship. In the years that have followed since the first Jews arrived in the New World, their contributions to every aspect of American society have been truly remarkable and in this land of freedom they have grown and prospered. As we celebrate our independence this Fourth of July, let us pause and remember those who have made this country great, the sweat and toil of the African Americans, the travail of the Chinese who built the railroads, the Poles, the Slavs, the Irish, and others who worked in the coal mines and in manufacturing, the Hispanics who have and continue to work our fields and crops and have contributed to the culture and economic worth of this country. We salute all those nations who have sent their people to us. May we continue to welcome all those who come to our shores for a better life.

Its Feed the Sheep day, and the church hall is bustling with activity. A small room next to the kitchen serves as a food pantry where volunteers pack boxes of food for waiting families. They do their best not to bump into each other while hurrying to pack boxes of food. Its the busiest day of the week for St. Margarets. Most all of our food is donated. The church supplies the meat. Father does a lot of shopping for us, said Alberta Forster, a food pantry volunteer. Although Wednesday is not Forsters normal volunteer day, on this particular busy day she is helping Les Lovejoy pack boxes of food while Barbara Brotherton checks people in. The food pantry distributes food once a month; however, if someone is in need, the church wont turn them away. We make sure children get the food they need. They get different things than the adults do, said Lovejoy. When packing boxes both volunteers make sure children have certain food items they need like canned fruit, juice and nutritional vegetables. The number of family members determines the amount of food that is given. Hopefully, there will be plenty available for those in need. We just used our last can of fruit today. We know more will come in but we can always use donations of food, said Forster. Feed the Sheep is a welloiled program whose leader, Cathy Smith, is at the helm every week. She and several other volunteers arrive early to get in the kitchen to start working on lunch. She estimates she feeds 50 to 80 people each week. The days menu includes roast beef, parsley potatoes, salad and bread and butter. The aroma beckons visitors to the church in search of a good meal. For most people, this will be the best meal of the day and quite possibly their only meal of the day. We do this every week. We want everyone to feel comfortable here and feel welcome. The church is here for them, said Smith. Smith is like a grandmother to many of the people who begin arriving for lunch. Children run up to her for a hug. Smith has been volunteering to Feed the Sheep for the past 15 years. For the past 10 years, she has been leading the program in an effort to make sure no one goes hungry. Nearly half of her volunteers are not members of the church. They come because they want to help Smith get things done. Volunteers enjoy preparing food for hungry visitors. Once the day is over, they too enjoy a good meal before its time to start cleaning the kitchen. They all look forward to returning the following week to do it all over again. I volunteer every week. I come here for myself because it makes me feel good. Im not a member of the church but my family is, said Steve Klobb, as he stirs the potatoes. Its almost noon and volunteers scramble to put the finishing touches on the meal before they begin serving. Everyone takes their places. Tables of people will be called up one at a time. Feeding Gods sheepSt. Margarets volunteers help hungry in Citrus ROCHELLE KAISER/ChronicleWhen it comes time to Feed the Sheep, it takes several volunteers to help fill plates of food. Helping to keep the kitchen running smoothly are Phil Largesse; Cathy Smith, leader; Steve Klobb; and Wayne Wood. On one of the busiest days of the week, Alberta Forster and Les Lovejoy pack several boxes of food for people in need. Both know what food is needed and take extra precautions to provide nutritious food for children.ROCHELLE KAISER/Chronicle See SHEEP/ Page C7

Bradshaw St. Learn More at www.1umc.org 000GWUE Back when I was neurotically obsessive about making bracelets and loved them to distraction, I ran out of room on my wrists to wear them all and made some for my car to wear car bracelets, if you will. Using green glass and pewter alphabet letter beads, I made three car bracelets to hang on my rear view mirror, spelling out grace, hope and mercy. I hung them on my mirror where they jangled and sparkled in the sunlight with every mile I drove, reminding me that Gods grace, hope and mercy go with me wherever I go until one day the mercy bracelet broke and the beads spilled all over the inside of my car. Although I searched everywhere, I could only find the M, R and C beads. I still dont know where the E and Y disappeared to probably the same place as my youth. So, I drove around for about a week without mercy, which is tragic. Without mercy, you die. Theres a story about a mother who approached French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, seeking pardon for her son who was about to be sentenced for his crimes. The emperor told her, Justice demands death. I dont ask for justice, the mother said. I plead for mercy. Napoleon replied, But your son does not deserve mercy. It would not be mercy if he deserved it, and mercy is all I ask for, the mother said. Taking pity on the woman, Napoleon told her, Then mercy is what I will grant. Of all of Gods attributes, I love his mercy the best. Mercy is getting what we dont deserve. If youve even been a teenage girl who sneaked out of the house to meet a boy your parents have forbidden you to see and have gotten caught, then you know what it is to plead for mercy. If youve ever stood by and watched your child in pain, helpless to make things better, then you know what it is to plead for mercy. On the flip side, if youve ever had a kid scribble I love you on a bedroom door with permanent marker, you understand an inkling of mercy from Gods perspective. The crime deserves punishment, but mercy prompts a hug instead. The prophet Micah wrote, Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives You do not stay angry forever, but delight to show mercy (Micah 7:18). Mercy is getting what we dont deserve. See why I love it best? The modern hymn, Wonderful, Merciful Savior gives praise to the Almighty, infinite Father, faithfully loving (his) own. Here in our weakness you find us falling before your throne, we sing. Thats us, pleading for mercy. I cant say for certain, but Im pretty sure Jesus never denied anyone mercy who ever begged him for it. As Micah says, God delights to show mercy. Its his thing. Its his delight. Thats why I made my car a mercy bracelet, so I would never forget that his mercies are new every morning, as if I ever could or would forget. After I drove around for about a week without mercy, at least without my mercy car bracelet, I bought another Y and another E alphabet beads, restrung the bracelet and hung it back on my mirror, back in its place along with grace and hope, for I dont think you can or should separate the three. Grace saves us. Hope points us to God and mercy brings us near. All was well with my soul, until I noticed that I had misspelled mercy, spelling it m-e-c-r-y instead, which made me laugh. Actually, I thought, mecry isnt all that inaccurate since mercy is something that me cries for Give me mercy, not justice! Please dont give me what I deserve. Jesus told his followers, Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy. But I wonder if thats not also true backwards, that those to whom God shows mercy in turn show it to others. Maybe those who are stingy with their mercy dont fully understand just how much mercy theyve received. The New Testament writer James warns that judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who is not merciful, that mercy triumphs over judgment. Mercy rules, mercy reigns and Gods mercy endures forever. Maybe everyone needs a bracelet as a reminder.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

In just a few short weeks, our young people will return to the classroom for the majority of their day. The flip side of that is when 50 million kids in America leave school, approximately 15 million kids, 25 percent, are left unguided and possibly unsafe. In Citrus County, according to the 2012 Kids Care Data, there are more than 15,000 school-enrolled youths. That translates to close to 4,000 young people in our own county with the potential to go home to empty homes or homes that are unable to provide a safe and positive environment. When we leave our kids behind, the hope for our countys future is left in the past, too. If our county is to succeed, it is imperative that we redefine the opportunity equation for all kids: it takes the knowledge, skills and behaviors kids learn both in and out of school to put them on a path to a great future. Applying the school plus out-of-school equation is how we help our youths graduate with a plan for the future to become successful, healthy and engaged citizens. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County provides the out-of-school portion of the equation. Whether the issue is one of safety or being left to their own devices, the clubs youth development programs between the hours of 2 and 6 p.m. keep our young people safe and engaged in fun learning situations. Having a neighborhood club that offers a positive, safe and fun environment is the goal of Boys & Girls Clubs. Our mission is to assist and empower the young people that need our help to learn to make healthy lifestyle choices regarding nutrition, education, exercise and relationships. We encourage you to support Boys& Girls Clubs of Citrus County, thereby supporting our youths and our countys future. Get involved. Tour the clubs. Visit us at bccitrus.org and like us on Facebook at Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County. Order through amazonsmiles.com and choose us as your charity. Attend our fundraising events. Join our board. Consider sponsoring a child for $75 a month or $750 for the entire after-school program. Nothing is more powerful than the opportunity to positively impact a life. And remember, when school is out clubs are in! Boys & Girls Clubs is funded through donations and various grants including those from the Florida Department of Education, Kids Central Inc. and United Way.

SATURDAY, JULY5, 2014 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Charles Baudouin said, No matter how hard you work for success, if your thought is saturated with the fear of failure, it will kill your efforts, neutralize your endeavors and make success impossible. That can apply at the bridge table. In todays deal, though, South has to try to neutralize the threat of Easts heart suit. South is in three no-trump and West leads the heart six. What should declarer do? South starts with seven top tricks: one spade, one heart (given the lead), four diamonds and one club. At least two more tricks are available from the club suit. But is there any danger? If, at trick one, declarer plays low from the dummy and wins Easts nine with his king, then, when he takes the losing club finesse, West will lead his second heart and the defenders will win one club and four hearts. The result will be the same if South plays dummys heart 10 and takes Easts jack with his king. Instead, declarer should call for dummys queen. East has to take the trick with his ace; otherwise, South gets two heart tricks. But what does East do now? If he leads another heart, he gives declarer two tricks in the suit. So he shifts to the spade king. South could win that trick, but does better to duck it. Whatever happens after that, declarer takes at least one spade, one heart, four diamonds and three clubs (and can squeeze East in the majors for an overtrick). Finally, the curious may work out how EastWest can defeat three no-trump if declarer allows East to win trick one with his heart nine.

R (WGN-A) 18 18 18 18 20Funny Home VideosFunny Home VideosFunny Home VideosFunny Home VideosBones Bones Dear Annie: I had to respond to Frustrated with Noise, who had a problem with children crying in church. Obviously, this person doesnt have children. How are these kids supposed to learn how to behave in church if their parents do not have them participate in the services? Yes, loudly screaming children should be removed until they can calm down, but otherwise the children should remain. As a young mother, I attended church alone with my two young sons. Once, the baby started crying, and I did not want to leave my 4year-old in the pew, and he was unwilling to leave with me. When I later apologized to the wonderful Franciscan friar who was the officiate that day, he simply stated, No worries. He was just singing his praises to God. We should all take this attitude toward our youngest church members. Experienced Church Mom Dear Mom: Our mail was divided evenly on this one. Read on: From Florida: I am a childrens pastor with many years of experience. Every church I have served in has had a fully staffed nursery with loving, trained volunteers and a well-equipped and exceptionally clean environment. But when we suggest parents take advantage of these services, some of them act as if we are trying to sell their children. It is the responsibility of the parents to realize that not everyone is overjoyed listening to their child cry, scream or otherwise disrupt the service. We are pleased to help, but we cant care for children if parents wont bring them to us! Fargo, N.D.: As a pastor, I am keenly interested in knowing how people feel about having children in worship services. It is very important for people of all ages to be welcome during every worship service in the church. Any congregation or parishioner who feels otherwise needs to take a good look at the Bible. Did children listen silently when Jesus was speaking? Of course not. But does Jesus create a separate room for the children? Does he tell the parents to get control or get out? No. In fact, Jesus says, Let the little children come to me! Church is not a social club for adults. Church is a place where people of all ages are to be welcomed and loved unconditionally. Texas: I liked your response, but heres the problem. Most churches are so desperate to get bodies in the door, they wont attempt to instruct parents in how to behave. These parents, like the children they coddle, wont see themselves in this letter. Theyll say, Its just a little crying spell, and shell get over it in a minute. But if it happens week after week, it means the child is exerting control. Instead of raising children, these parents are raising their own little center of the universe, teaching them that if they scream enough theyll get what they want. We have self-centered parents raising another generation of kids even more self-centered. Boston: My father was a minister. It was most troubling to him, too, dealing with this touchy subject. One Sunday morning while preaching, a child started crying. The mother got up to leave, and my father stopped speaking. A loud snore broke the silence. My father said, I can preach over a crying baby, but not over the snoring of adults. There was applause as the mother sat back down. What happens when babies cry on airplanes? Theres no place to send them, so please be understanding. Huntington, Vt.: Be grateful that a young family is coming to your church. Make a joyful noise. In Vermont (and probably elsewhere), we are lucky if anyone comes to church. Church is dying here. Ill take the childs loud noise, crying and screaming any day. Every town needs a church.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Pollock takes her place at the bread and butter station. She is handed a filled plate of food then places bread and butter on it before handing it to the person in line. Pollock enjoys coming to the church on Wednesdays to volunteer. My motto is stay out of the way and dont make suggestions, she said. Pollock enjoys being at the church on Wednesday. Its an opportunity for her to have social time. She said shed probably be just sitting at home if she wasnt at church. Being at church means she can enjoy being with volunteers and other residents she often sees regularly. Kitchen volunteers laugh, and they all say theyve tried to get fired, but Smith just wont do it. They all enjoy each others company and dont consider what they do as work. They prefer to think of their time in the kitchen as giving back to a community they love. Its important for people to know about us, said Smith. For more information on the Feed the Sheep program or the food pantry, contact St. Margarets Episcopal Church at 352-726-3153. Feed the Sheep is held every Wednesday at the church at 114 N.
