S ale ends August 2 2014. From staff reports Probe focuses on stolen checks, cash MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerConstantina Emmanuel had it all figured out. The former Citrus County community center supervisor would ask customers to make rental checks out to C.D.E. her own initials telling them that was the name of the countys checking account, investigators say. In other cases, investigators say, she simply crossed out the true check recipients and added her own name or initials. The checks were deposited in one of three personal accounts at night through an ATM so no one would ask for identification, a sheriffs investigator said. And, while the investigation is ongoing, officials believe Emmanuel, a nine-year county employee known to co-workers and customers as Dina, stole up to $250,000 from Citrus County taxpayers by depositing rent checks and cash into personal accounts. Emmanuel, arrested in February on an organized fraud charge in connection with misuse of a government-issued gasoline credit card, has not been charged with any other crime. However, investigators say a review of hundreds of transactions that Emmanuel had with renters over a five-year period show she diverted tens of thousands of rental dollars into her own bank accounts. Emmanuels attorney, Joseph Indelicato, said he hasnt heard details of the sheriffs office investigation into missing rental money, but he doubts Emmanuel Constantina Dina Emmanuelformer county employee being investigated.

Huggins and his mother, Ruthie, say they clean about 200 gallons of scallops each day for those who harvest them off the Citrus County coastline. Banner year for bay scallopsERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerOpen scallop season and the people will come. Thats exactly what happened in Citrus County this year, and businesses are booming. Our gas sales and retail have increased by 40percent on the weekends since scallop season has begun, said Michael Whetstone, president of Whetstone Oil Co Inc. in Crystal River. We sell wholesale gasoline to a lot of the local marinas, and their sales are really up. The smile on his face proved his satisfaction with the economic impact that bay scallops have brought to his business and the community. And the sight of boats keeps him feeling confident that the season wont be slowing down anytime soon. Last Saturday I went flying, and I saw five boats abreast going out of Crystal River, Whetstone said this past week. There were probably 3,000 boats out in the scalloping grounds. Adam Thomas, Citrus Countys interim tourism director, said tourists are coming from Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville and even Georgia, making 2014 already a successful scalloping season for Citrus County. Busy. Busy, busy, busy. We dont have actual numbers until after the season is over, but when I talk to hotel owners about room occupancy, the weekends are booked all the way until Labor Day in September, Thomas said. Looking at the season right now, it is at a really, really good pace. MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerThe popularity of scallops doesnt only crowd local hotels and restaurants. Boat ramps feel the pinch, too. Enter the ramp rangers. Citrus County officials this year are hoping to ward off or eliminate a constant weekend problem of boat ramps clogged with people cleaning scallops, or entrepreneurs who use county ramps and docks as a staging area for cleaning scallops and dumping shells. Blocking a boat ramp without county approval for any reason other than an emergency violates county codes. Violators can be fined up to $500 and receive 60days in jail. As scallop season neared its conclusion last year, Lecanto resident Jim Phillips complained to Commissioner Joe Meek that the Homosassa boat ramp was clogged with scallopers cleaning their catch. He said scallopers tossed empty shells back into the river or even at other boaters wanting to put in at the boat ramp. Prior to scallop season this year, Phillips wrote Meek again in hopes of preventing a similar occurrence this year at the Homosassa boat ramp. See TIDY/ Page A7 ANGELAMARIADEJESUS Staff writerThe bay scallop, Argopecten irradians, is a coastal native that has ingrained itself into local culture, not just as a meal, but as a tradition and a hobby. Families come together, some local and some not, for an opportunity that only comes once a year. Its an Easter egg hunt for grown-ups, said Joshua Snyder, a regular visitor to the Nature Coast. Snorkeling for scallops is a hunt where the scallops not only hide, but make an escape.

Associated PressBIG PINE KEY Nearly 500 divers and snorkelers submerged in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on Saturday for a concert beneath the sea broadcast by a local radio station. The 30th annual Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival, held at Looe Key Reef along the continental United States only living coral barrier reef, featured four hours of commercial-free music piped below the surface via a series of underwater speakers. We started this as an arts and cultural event 30 years ago (and) thought it would be a one-time thing, said event cofounder and coordinator Bill Becker. Its the only place we know of where music is put underwater for divers, snorkelers and the marine life. The water-themed playlist included such tunes as the Beatles Octopuss Garden and the themes from Disneys The Little Mermaid and televisions classic Flipper. Participants described the music as clear and ethereal, with underwater visibility of about 50 feet. Some divers were costumed and pretended to play quirky metal instruments sculpted by Florida Keys artist August Powers. As well as offering an unusual experience for dive and snorkel enthusiasts, the broadcast included diver awareness announcements promoting coral reef protection.A2SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LOCAL 16 Channel Water Resistant Digital Reprogrammable Wireless 5 Programs It Has Tinnitus Therapy Built In 2-Year Full Warranty Advanced Whistling Cancellations (No one will be able to hear your hearing aid whistle) $99500eachManufacturer price regularly $1995 This event includes : 30-Day Trial Free Hearing Test Free Video Ear Inspection Free In-Office DemonstrationAre you ready for a new era of hearing?SIEMENSIntroducing the new Orion Platform, with a screaming fast processor, forty processing channels, new compression architecture and a frequency response out to 10 kHz.OCALA EAST 352-861-22753405 SW COLLEGE RD, STE 207Colours Plaza, next to Red LobsterOCALA WEST 352-671-299911250 SW 93RD CT.

ERYN WORTHINGTON/Chronicle Associated PressNEW ORLEANS Federal prosecutors are appealing a judges decision to grant a new trial to a former BP engineer convicted of obstructing justice in an investigation of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The notice of appeal in the case of Kurt Mix was filed Friday in U.S. District Court, where Mix was tried, and at the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Prosecutors accused Mix of deliberately deleting text messages to and from a supervisor and a BP contractor about the amount of oil flowing from BPs Macondo well after the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion. In June, U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval threw out Mixs December 2013 conviction and granted him a new trial. He ruled that a jury forewoman tainted the deliberations by mentioning to a deadlocked jury that she had heard something outside the trial that affirmed her view of Mixs guilt. Mixs new trial currently is set for Aug. 18, although the appeal could change that. Prosecutors say Mix deleted the text messages in order to stymie a grand jury investigation of the spill. Mixs attorneys have argued there is ample evidence he shared information about the flow rate throughout the government investigation. They also said prosecutors failed to prove that Mix knew the information he deleted would be pertinent to a grand jury investigation an investigation they said he did not know about and that had not yet even begun. US appealing new trial of ex-BP engineer Special to the ChronicleVolunteers interested in supporting the Homeland Security Volunteer Team of Citrus County and disaster-related activities through participation in disaster response, recovery, training, drills and recognition events are invited to attend a Volunteer Reception Center Training from 9:30 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Aug. 5, at the Central Ridge Community Center in Beverly Hills. The training exercise is being coordinated by the Homeland Security Volunteer Team of Citrus County and is sponsored by the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of the Nature Coast Volunteer Center. The Nature Coast Volunteer Center which is the lead agency for volunteers and donations in Citrus County emergency activations hosts the training annually to prepare for any type of disaster, natural or manmade, which might require the use of volunteers. At the opening of this training session, all participants will be briefed on the different roles volunteers may serve in the event there is a local disaster. Then there will be a simulated disaster scenario, perhaps weatherrelated, that sets in motion the role-play activity where spontaneous volunteers go through the processing procedure. Volunteers will be trained to set up and operate a Volunteer Reception Center. This training will give volunteers a clear idea of their roles in the event an actual emergency occurs in Citrus County. There will be a discussion and evaluation period at the end of the exercise. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance and have the option of registering with the Nature Coast Volunteer Center so they may be called upon to serve in an actual emergency activation. The training will be at the Central Ridge Community Center, 77 Civic Circle, Beverly Hills. For registration or more information, call the Nature Coast Volunteer Center at 352-249-1275 or email ncvc@bocc.citrus.fl.us. Light refreshments will be served. Disaster response class offered

There are 171 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: In 1973, former presidential aide Alexander P. Butterfield revealed to Senate Watergate Committee staff members the existence of President Richard Nixons secret White House taping system. On this date: In 1787, the Congress of the Confederation adopted the Northwest Ordinance, which established a government in the Northwest Territory, an area corresponding to the presentday Midwest and Upper Midwest. In 1863, deadly rioting against the Civil War military draft erupted in New York City. (The insurrection was put down three days later.) In 1923, a sign consisting of 50foot-tall letters spelling out HOLLYWOODLAND was dedicated in the Hollywood Hills to promote a subdivision (the last four letters were removed in 1949). In 1974, the Senate Watergate Committee proposed sweeping reforms in an effort to prevent another Watergate scandal. In 1977, a blackout lasting 25 hours hit the New York City area. Five years ago: Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic Supreme Court nominee in history, vowed loyalty to the impartiality of our justice system at the start of her Senate confirmation hearing. One year ago: A jury in Sanford, Florida, cleared neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman of all charges in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager whose killing unleashed furious debate over racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice. Todays birthdays: Actor Patrick Stewart is 74. Actor Harrison Ford is 72. Actor Cheech Marin is 68. Actor-director Cameron Crowe is 57. Thought for Today: In every age it has been the tyrant, the oppressor and the exploiter who has wrapped himself in the cloak of patriotism, or religion, or both to deceive and overawe the People. Eugene V. Debs, American labor activist (1855-1926).Today inHISTORY CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Todays active pollen:Ragweed, chenopods, grasses Todays count: 2.9/12 Mondays count: 4.9 Tuesdays count: 4.8 To start your subscription:Call now for home delivery by our carriers:Citrus County: 352-563-5655 Marion County: 888-852-2340 13 weeks: $39.64* 6 months: $70.63* 1 year: $133.87**Subscription price includes a separate charge of .15.5 per day for transportation cost and applicable state and local sales tax.

Former Saturday Night Live star Tracy Morgan has been released from a rehabilitation facility as he heals from serious injuries he suffered in a car crash that left a fellow comedian dead, his spokesman said Saturday. The former Rock star suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike. The wreck killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair who went by the name Jimmy Mack. Comedian Ardley Fuqua and another passenger, Jeffrey Millea, were injured. On Thursday, lawyers for Morgan filed a lawsuit against Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart Stores Inc. in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, claiming the retailer was negligent when a driver of one of its tractor-trailers rammed into Morgans limousine van. The complaint claims the retail giant should have known that its driver had been awake for over 24 hours and that his commute of 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware was unreasonable. It also alleges the driver fell asleep at the wheel. Truck driver Kevin Roper, 35, of Jonesboro, Georgia, has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges. A criminal complaint also accuses him of not sleeping for more than 24 hours before the crash, a violation of New Jersey law. A report by federal transportation safety investigators said Roper was driving 65 mph in the 60 seconds before he slammed into the limo van. The speed limit on that stretch of the turnpike is 55 mph and was lowered to 45 mph that night because of construction.Popular TV journalist taken by prosecutorsBEIJING A top business journalist at Chinas state broadcaster was taken away by prosecutors, abruptly absent from his nightly newscast he was anchoring, Chinas financial news magazine Caixin reported Saturday. The sudden removal of journalist Rui Chenggang came less than two months after his boss was detained on suspicion of taking bribes during an ongoing investigation into high-level corruption at Chinas biggest state-run network. Rui has interviewed many world leaders and business magnates and is known for his nationalistic streak. He has more than 10 million followers on his Twitter-like microblog page. In 2007, he protested the presence of a Starbucks shop at Beijings Forbidden City and helped start a grassroots movement that eventually kicked the U.S. brand out of the historic site.Cake Boss helped from fogged-in boatNEW YORK Reality TVs Cake Boss has a new perspective on the ingredients for a successful boat trip after he and his family got stuck in the fog in New York Harbor. Buddy Valastro tweeted his thanks to the citys police and fire departments after the mishap Friday night. And, he added, next time his family takes the boat out at night, they need to check the forecast. The fire department says authorities were called to help people get off a boat stranded near Staten Island around 9:30 p.m. Firefighter Chris Tucker tells the Daily News he and firefighter Paul Patras used a thermalimaging camera to find the 36foot boat and tow it to safety. Valastro stars in TLCs Cake Boss. He owns Carlos Bakery, which has four locations in New Jersey. From wire reports Associated PressDirector and anchor of China Central Television Rui Chenggang moderates a session at the World Economic Forum on Jan. 29, 2011, in Davos, Switzerland.

Associated PressMIAMI Plans to develop a plot of Miami-Dade forest thats home to rare plants and endangered species is causing alarm among some environmentalists. The University of Miami sold the 88-acre tract of endangered pine rockland this month to Ram, a Palm Beach County developer planning a 185,000-squarefoot Walmart for the space, along with an LA Fitness, Chik-fil-A, Chilis and 900 apartments. To gain permission for the deal, Ram agreed to set aside 40 acres for a preserve. But outside the land reserved for preservation, a trove of rare plants has been found in recent weeks, as well as rare butterflies. About 40 species grow only in pine rocklands, which once ran from Homestead north to the Miami River. The largest remaining stretch of rockland, about 19,000 acres, is in Everglades National Park. Federal officials say theyre closely monitoring the project but are limited in what they can do. Sanctions, for example, can only be issued if endangered animals are killed. Associated PressMEDFORD, N.Y. A prosecutor says cellphone records, blood, and a palm print tie a man arrested in Florida this week to the death of a missing young mother whose body was found in the woods on Long Island. Dante Taylor was arraigned Saturday in Suffolk County Court on a second-degree murder charge in Sarah Goodes death. The 21year-olds disappearance and the discovery of her car near her home prompted a dayslong search in June. Taylor, 19, of Mastic, was arrested on an unrelated warrant Thursday in Vero Beach, Florida, and was returned to Long Island. He is jailed without bail. Prosecutor Janet Albertson said in court Saturday that Goode had been raped and beaten and her hair cut off by having it closed in a window of her car. Albertson said a piece of metal was found in Goodes skull. She said a grand jury would hear the case next week and she would seek to upgrade Taylors charge to first-degree murder. Defense lawyer Patrick OConnell declined to comment on Taylors arrest but said his client felt heartfelt sympathies and prayers for Goode and her family. Goodes relatives were shocked at the revelations, but relieved that a suspect had been arrested. Dozens of them attended the arraignment wearing T-shirts with Goodes photo and the John Lennon lyric: You may say Im a dreamer but Im not the only one. One relative was escorted from the courtroom after angrily yelling at Taylor. Goodes friend, Shannon Able, said his arrest does not make a difference. It does not bring back my friend and Jocelyns mom and everybodys sister and aunt, she said. Goode was a medical technician with a 4-year-old daughter; she lived in Medford. She vanished after an evening watching a movie on TV with some close friends June 6, police said. An older sister of Goodes called police about two days later, saying the close-knit family hadnt heard from her and that was unusual. About an hour later, police found Goodes 1999 gray BMW parked near woods around Medford. The car showed no signs of a crash or violence. The find sparked an extensive search. Ultimately, a volunteer search party of 40 to 50 people discovered her body in a thickly wooded area not far from the car. Prosecutors and police did not say whether Taylor and Goode knew each other or what investigators believe led to her death. A memorial fund has raised more than $37,000 through the online fundraising site Crowdrise to help support Goodes daughter and pay for funeral expenses. The family planned to hold a vigil Saturday night at a Long Island beach. She was a good girl, Goodes sister, Elizabeth DeMuria, said. Everybody loved her. She was the one who lit up the room when she came in the door, and now she cannot do that anymore.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 A5 000IMLS Minimum charges apply.

A memorial service will be held July23, 10:30AM, at the Crystal River United Methodist Church, Crystal River, FL. Lee was born on June14, 1931 in Sharon, PA to parents Marie Isabel Chantrey Parker and William Lee Wayne Parker, Sr. He was a member of the Sharpsville First United Methodist Church and attended Sharpsville schools, where he served as Senior Class President and participated in sports, music, and honor society. At Allegheny College he was a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity; played as a Starter on the Gators basketball team; and sang tenor with the Allegheny Singers, remaining a faithful member of the choir through the last 2012 reunion. After earning his BA degree in 1953, Lee taught American History and coached basketball in the Mercer school system. He married his high school sweetheart, Averyl Faye Smock, on August21, 1954. Shortly thereafter, Lee enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed for two years at Fort Knox, KY. Upon his return to Sharpsville, he worked in his parents business, the Parker Lumber Company, while earning a Masters Degree in Science and Education at Westminster College in 1958. Heeding a long felt call to the ministry, in 1961 Lee moved his family to Drew University, Madison, NJ, where he graduated with a Masters of Divinity Degree in 1965. Part of his graduate study included student preaching in the Everittstown and Pattenburg, NJ United Methodist Churches (UMC). With their four children, Lee and Faye returned to PA in 1965 to take a preaching position at the Linesville and Harmonsburg UMCs. Lee served there for five years before becoming pastor at the Edinboro UMC from 1970 1981. Next he was appointed minister to the West View UMC in Pittsburgh from which he retired in 1992. He proceeded to build his dream home in Treasure Lake, DuBois, PA. An energetic and committed person, Lee couldnt stay retired for longhe soon returned to preaching at the Mt. Zion UMC in DuBois. In 2003, Lee fulfilled his dream to retire to FL. A skillful communicator, Reverend Lee illuminated scripture using current references; he touched his congregation with humorous and poignant anecdotes. Creative and entertaining, he delighted parishioners of all ages with his Safari Pastor, searching for Gods truth in the jungles of life children sermons. Deeply empathetic to others tough situations, he devoted countless hours in counsel and prayer to those in need. Everyone who knew Lee felt his love. He made us laugh with his quick wit. He comforted us with the right words. He inspired us with his faith. He answered his Call. Lee is survived by his wife of sixty years, Faye, and children Linda, Donald, Christopher, Melanie, granddaughter Heather, and son-in-law Tom as well as sister Florence Parker Alexander and nieces and nephews Cynthia, Jeffery, Rodney, and Laurel.

Death ELSEWHERE Tommy Ramone, 65MUSICIANNEW YORK The Ramones always seemed too fast. Their songs rushed by, often two minutes or less of pure adrenaline. Their influence outstripped their sales. And now, with the death of drummer Tommy, all four original members of the seminal punk rock band are gone. Tommy Ramone, born Erdelyi Tamas in Budapest, Hungary, died Friday at age 65, said Dave Frey, who works for Ramones Productions and Silent Partner Management. Frey had no further details. Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee and Tommy Ramone, taking their surname from an alias Paul McCartney used to check into hotels, formed in Queens, New York, in 1974. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members were among the leaders of the original punk rock movement with songs like I Wanna Be Sedated, Blitzkrieg Bop and Rockaway Beach. Wearing ripped jeans, black leather and bad haircuts, the Ramones stripped rock down to its essentials: two guitars, drums, a singer and no solos. Their 1976 debut album had 14 songs in less than 30 minutes. The Ramones never had a Top 40 hit.A6SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Closing time for placing ad is 4 business days prior to run date.

County Attorney Kerry Parsons, in an email response to Phillips, said the county hired monitors to ensure county ordinances were not being violated at the boat ramp on weekends when the river is busiest. These employees will be provided training by (the) Sheriffs Office to enforce compliance with the proper use of the Boat ramp, she wrote. If the employees run into trouble at the boat ramp, with an individual refusing to comply with their instructions, the Sheriffs Office will intervene. She also said signs were re-worded at the boat ramp to let boaters know they cannot prevent other boaters from using the ramp. Sheriffs spokeswoman Heather Yates said the socalled ramp rangers are doing a good job of keeping the Homosassa boat ramp from clogging up. She said the sheriffs office has issued a few warnings to people, alerting them that they cannot clean their scallop shells in the ramp area or right of way. Yates said the office has not had a need as yet to ticket anyone for trespassing.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. An employee of a rental boat supplier and tours in Homosassa flipped through her bookings and could not find a boat available on Saturdays through the end of August. Scallopers patronize many of the businesses in Homosassa and Crystal River, but their presence has affected the whole county. The commercial hotel inventory is on the west side of the county, but those rooms get filled up and it fluctuates all through the east side of the county, Thomas said. It brings a great economic impact to our gas stations for boats, to our eateries and grocery stores. Thomas recommended tourists and locals take to the water Monday through Wednesday. There are still boats out there, but its less congested, he said. Plus, you will find it a little easier to get in and out of our docks and to get a hotel room.

Seven-year-old Jaden Henkel, a member of the Snyder clan, has had time to work out her scalloping strategy, but her true secret to filling a scallop bag are the tools of the trade gloves, flippers, a snorkel and a mask. I like when we get the bag full of scallops, because then we can take them home and cook them, she said, noting her family fed leftover bait to a tarpon off Petes Pier. Tim Snyder, the selfproclaimed top scalloper of the family, believes the secret to his success is all about finding the right spot, the right grass and having experience. Its just fun, said Sarah Stephenson, assistant research scientist with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If they see your shadow, she said, they swim away, so you have to chase them. You also get the chance to see other sea life. Tom Taylor, Billy John and Jimmy Morse are commercial shrimpers in Citrus County who enjoy scalloping as a hobby. By law, they are required to release every scallop they collect, but given the chance, they enjoy eating scallops any which way they come. You can eat them broiled, boiled, sauted, barbecued, Taylor said. You can do just about anything you want with scallops.

RULES TO REMEMBER A Florida saltwater fishing license is required to harvest bay scallops when using a boat. Make sure you have plenty of ice for the scallops to reside in until it is time to eat them. Open harvest season for bay scallop along Floridas Gulf Coast is through Sept.24. Aboard a vessel, scallopers may possess no more than 2gallons of whole bay scallops, per person, in the shell; or, 1pint of bay scallop meat per person. Whole bay scallops in the shell, or 1 half-gallon of bay scallop meat, may be possessed aboard any vessel at any time. Bay scallops may be harvested only by hand or with a net. While diving for the bay scallop, a red diver-down flag is required to be mounted to your boat. Boaters must remain 300 feet away from a diver-down flag. TIDYContinued from Page A1 ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleBoaters waited in line for the next opportunity to take their boat out on the Homosassa River during Fourth of July weekend, while others were trying to load onto theirs. County Attorney Kerry Parsons said the county has hired monitors to ensure county ordinances were not being violated at the boat ramp on weekends when the river is busiest. RANGERSContinued from Page A1 KNOW YOUR QUARRY Bay scallop, Argopecten irradians, sub species concentricus Gills: Scallop development is tied to water quality. If the water is dirty, mud and other particles can get caught in the gills and essentially choke them. Gonads: A mature scallop will have a brighter orange ovary, while a younger, less mature scallop will have a black ovary. Eyes: If youre going scalloping for the first time, look for the bright blue eyes. These tiny eyes are unique to the scallop species, as other mollusks like oysters and clams dont have them. Size: Scallops usually spawn from September to October, in accordance with the colder season in Florida. Scallop larvae are no larger than the tip of a pin and look like miniature, transparent versions of mature scallops. Shell: Scallops grow their own shells, and as they grow, different bands and colors appear on them. Swimming: When a scallop is swimming away from you, you might hear a soft popping noise. Thats the sound of its shells clacking together. Foot: Scallops have a foot while they are developing, but it goes away as it matures.

could have pocketed such a large amount without it being discovered long before now. If there is in fact $250,000 of taxpayer money missing, there would be a whole lot of heads rolling, he said. It seems like this number is science fiction. Clerk of Courts Angela Vick, whose office is conducting a detailed audit of Emmanuels transactions, said county supervisors were unaware of the wrongdoing because there was no system in place to catch it. Lack of oversight, thats what it boils down to, Vick said. Lack of controls, lack of oversight. Citrus County Commissioner Scott Adams, who mentioned the $250,000 figure at last weeks board meeting, said County Administrator Brad Thorpe should take responsibility for the thefts. This is his problem. Its his job, Adams said. Somebody should have picked up on it. Were talking about complete incompetence. Thorpe was unavailable for comment. Emmanuel, who worked the Parks and Recreation Division, was held in high regard by her supervisors. In September 2012, she was named the countys employee of the month for her excellent customer service, according to county records. That admiration came to a halt last December. She was fired two days after Christmas when county officials, acting on an anonymous tip, discovered numerous charges to the county-issued Wright Express gas card for her own vehicle, according to reports. She was arrested in February after investigators said she illegally charged $9,000 in fuel for vehicles belonging to her and her son. Emmanuel, 42, of Crystal River, was charged with scheming to defraud less than $20,000. Those charges are pending in circuit court. After county officials uncovered the gasoline card misuse, they asked the clerk of courts office for a full review of Emmanuels transaction activity. When Vicks office concludes the audit, it then will audit the Parks and Recreation Division. Vick said the Emmanuel review is a forensic audit. Rather than take a sampling of records to reach conclusions, auditors are poring over every single transaction Emmanuel conducted, tallying differences between Emmanuels reporting of deposits and the actual deposit receipts. Emmanuels job was to schedule and collect rent for the use of county facilities, including the Citrus County Auditorium and Citrus Springs Community Center, home to dances, weddings and church services. Sheriffs Detective Jim McIntyre said he subpoenaed Emmanuels bank records a checking account and savings account at Bank of America, and a separate checking account at Florida Credit Union. McIntyre said he discovered checks made out to Citrus County Parks and Recreation, or Citrus County Board of County Commissioners, in Emmanuels personal accounts. He said Emmanuel would cross out the countys name and write in her initials C.D.E. In other cases, he said, checks were written out only to C.D.E. McIntyre said he contacted every payor to determine whether he or she intended to write a check to the county, or to Emmanuel. Organizations that regularly rent county facilities have ledgers that show checks written to pay for rent, he said. He said he is reviewing hundreds of deposited checks. Its very time-consuming, McIntyre said. McIntyre said many people wrote the check to C.D.E. Emmanuels first, middle and last name initials. Renters told him that Emmanuel said the initials were the countys account identification. There were a lot of them, he said. One church, for example, rents the Citrus Springs Community Center for weekly services. The churchs $1,800 monthly rent checks were made out to C.D.E., McIntyre said. All three accounts were closed by the time McIntyre started his investigation. She cleared them out right after her termination, he said, declining to say how much money Emmanuel withdrew from the accounts before closing them. County Human Resources Director Sherry Anderson told the State Attorneys Office that the losses were in excess of $150,000, according to a document Adams produced at Tuesdays board meeting. The document was the summary of a June13 conversation Anderson had with a victim-witness clerk at the State Attorneys Office. The summary said Anderson did not want restitution, as they will never see a dime. It said county officials wanted Emmanuel sentenced to the maximum prison time possible and that stolen checks add up to more than $150,000. County spokeswoman Tobey Phillips said Anderson received that estimate from the sheriffs office. McIntyre, however, said he didnt think the amount would exceed $100,000. McIntyre said Emmanuels account showed large deposits of cash, which his office cannot trace. He said the clerks audit was trying to determine how much cash from renters Emmanuel deposited in her account. Vick said the forensic audit would date back to 2009 or 2010 and would look at every transaction this person touched. Vick did not want to estimate how much missing money would be discovered by her audit and the sheriffs investigation combined. Asked, however, about Adams prediction in last weeks commission meeting that the total would exceed $250,000, Vick said: I would say that could be a possibility. Indelicato, Emmanuels attorney, thinks his client is being portrayed unfairly. Shes a nice lady. She doesnt deserve to go to prison, he said. Indelicato said Emmanuel has received anonymous hate mail since her arrest on the gascard charges. Right now all were dealing with is the gascard case, he said. She hasnt been charged with any of this. Hopefully, when they do, theyll give us a heads-up so they dont yank this poor woman out of work. Indelicato declined to say where Emmanuel works, or what if anything she told him about the rent checks. Phillips, the county spokeswoman, said the countys insurance carrier would cover the financial loss, except for a $10,000 deductible. She said the county would make a claim once the investigations are concluded. Shortly after Emmanuels arrest, the county put in place new rental polices in Parks and Recreation. Several employees, not just one, may rent out facilities and collect rent. And the rent collected now goes to an account clerk, who makes bank deposits. McIntyre said he expects to wrap up his investigation in about a month. He said he then will meet with Clerk Vick and the State Attorneys Office to decide how to proceed. Thorpe acknowledged the severity of the allegations in a memo he sent county commissioners in April. Unfortunately, when one of my employees fails to act appropriately, it reflects poorly on the organization as a whole, he wrote. Im truly stunned and embarrassed by the conduct of one of my supervisors that has worked in our organization for more than nine years.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A8SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/LOCAL 000IM29 RESERVATIONS & INFORMATION: 1-888-685-1594 (toll free) www.LargoMedical.com Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Spring Hill Holiday Inn Express 3528 Commercial Way Attend a FREE Seminar: KNEE PAIN? 000IP90 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS B LIND S 1657 W.

A Louisiana physician who faces prescription drug fraud charges after his Mississippi home was raided by narcotics agents in 2011 is asking a judge to delay his trial.The Vicksburg Postreported Dr. Lawrence Francis Chenier III said in court papers that he has hired a new attorney who needs time to prepare for trial. Trial is currently set for July21 before Warren County Circuit Judge M. James Chaney. Chenier recently hired attorney Lisa Ross of Jackson after being represented by Marshal Sanders. Chaney has scheduled a hearing for Monday on the request. The 61-year-old Chenier lives in Vicksburg and has a medical practice in Tallulah, Louisiana. He is charged with 74 counts of prescription forgery and a count of conspiracy. Prosecutors argue Chenier wrote prescriptions for 13,000 pills under assumed names to his co-defendant and live-in girlfriend Patti Carr of Vicksburg. Authorities said Carr picked up painkillers hydrocodone and Lyrica at a Vicksburg pharmacy using prescriptions from Chenier. More than 300 empty pill bottles were found inside a bedroom closet at the home the couple shared in Viocklsburg. In June, Chaney declined to dismiss charges against Chenier. The judge dismissed Cheniers argument that if the prescriptions were written in Louisiana, Mississippi courts had no jurisdiction over the case. The two were arrested in September 2011. Chenier and Carr are each free on $100,000 bond. Chenier is currently listed on the roster at Madison Parish Hospital. According to the hospitals website, however, the state of Louisiana has placed his medical license on probation. Chenier received his medical degree in 1980 at Meharry Medical College in Nashville and has been in practice since 1982, records show.

BRANDONLARRABEEThe News Service ofFloridaTALLAHASSEE Everyone in Tallahassee seemed to be looking for solutions this week. After Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis threw out two of the states congressional districts, lawyers and politicos were left trying to find out what the ruling meant and how to repair the damage. Meanwhile, the states prison system was looking for a fix to a spate of bad stories about suspicious deaths of prisoners in the agencys custody. By the end of the week, the head of one prison had been suspended and the secretary of the Department of Corrections was promising to do more if necessary. Even the question of how to grow marijuana was getting stuck in the regulatory thicket, as the Department of Health and the nascent pot industry argued over the regulations that will guide the farming of a version of the plant meant to help with some health problems.BATTLE LINES REDRAWN?Candidates are already out on the trail and making their cases for re-election. But at least some of them might face a new group of voters if not this November, then in two years. In a highly anticipated ruling, or at least a ruling closely watched in Tallahassee and Washington, D.C., a Leon County judge struck down a map of the states congressional districts drawn by the Legislature in 2012. The decision marked the first time a judge had considered whether the states congressional map was valid under the antigerrymandering Fair Districts constitutional amendments, approved by voters in 2010. The answer, according to Lewis, was that a district held by Democratic Congresswoman Corrine Brown and one represented by Republican Congressman Daniel Webster fell short. According to Lewis, lawmakers and the staff members charged with the once-a-decade redistricting process tried to shield the maps drawers from political influence, even as Republican political consultants tried to find a way to manipulate the process. That being said, the circumstantial evidence introduced at trial convinces me that the political operatives managed to find other avenues, other ways to infiltrate and influence the Legislature, to obtain the necessary cooperation and collaboration to ensure that their plan was realized, at least in part, Lewis wrote. They managed to taint the redistricting process and the resulting map with improper partisan intent. There is just too much circumstantial evidence of it, too many coincidences, for me to conclude otherwise. Those most directly affected by the ruling were grappling with the fallout. Twice, Brown lashed out at Lewis, saying that her district needed to retain its largely black population base. Overturning the current District 5 map ignores the essential redistricting principle of maintaining communities of interest or minority access districts, she said. Certainly, minority communities do not live in compact, cookiecutter like neighborhoods, and excessive adherence to district compactness, while ignoring the maintenance of minority access districts, fragments minority communities across the state. While he declared unconstitutional the map that was approved by the Legislature, Lewis did not specifically say what would need to be done to fix it. He could redraw the lines himself or order lawmakers to do it. Brown is considered relatively safe no matter what happens to the lines. But Webster and GOP Congressman John Mica could see Democratic-leaning voters shifted into their Central Florida districts giving Democrats some of the gains they wanted when they pushed the amendments four years ago. Its not like a fouror five-seat change in the process, said Steve Schale, a Democratic political strategist. But you take two seats that were out of play, and you put them in play, thats going to have an impact.CORRECTIONS UNDER FIREWhile Lewis was ruling on the future of the states political system, the past of one state agency could soon be headed to the court system as well. And the issues there were matters of life and death. The Florida Department of Corrections continued to take fire this week over the deaths of prisoners, with the agencys secretary placing Dade Correctional Institution Warden Jerry Cummings on administrative leave. Secretary Mike Crews took the action during a visit to the Florida City prison, where an inmate died in 2012 under questionable circumstances. Miami-Dade police are already investigating the death of Darren Rainey, an inmate who died after guards allegedly forced him to shower in scalding hot water as punishment. I am troubled by the allegations surrounding Dade Correctional Institution and feel a change at the facility is necessary for restoring accountability across the department, Crews said in a release Thursday. This morning I also met with correctional officers in the facility and underscored that the integrity of the department will not be compromised by any bad actions. DOC has been under fire for weeks following media reports, largely those inThe Miami Herald, about the suspicious deaths of inmates. Crews trip came after four investigators for the department filed a lawsuit against the agency, saying they were essentially punished for calling attention to an inaccurate report about an inmates death. The suit, filed this week, also names as defendants Gov.Rick Scotts Office of the Inspector General, Chief Inspector General Melinda Miguel and an assistant, and two highranking officials at the Department of Corrections. It alleges that the four employees bringing the claim Aubrey Land, David Clark, Doug Glisson and John Ulm have faced retaliation for raising questions about the investigation into the death of an inmate. The punishment includes two of the four facing their own internalaffairs investigation. The plaintiffs have alleged that as a result of the exercise of their rights under the First Amendment, they have been subject to ongoing retaliation in the form of false and unwarranted internal affairs complaints which, in all likelihood, will continue unless injunctive relief is granted by this court, the suit states.BUZZKILLSOf all the groups that seem least likely to get upset over the actions of state government, those involved with the marijuana industry would seem to top the list. After all, the leafy-green substance is supposed to help people relax, right? Instead, regulators heard an earful early this week from growers, lawyers and lobbyists seeking to rake in some green from Floridas new pot industry during a standing-room-only, rulemaking workshop. At the top of the complaint list: concerns about a proposed lottery system to award five organizations the chance to grow, manufacture and dispense a type of medical marijuana approved by Floridas Republicandominated Legislature this spring. But complaints touched on other issues such as the number of dispensaries. Department of Health General Counsel Jennifer Tschetter said the agencys preliminary plan was to limit the number of dispensaries to five as outlined in the law and to bar dispensaries from shipping or transporting the final product. The state needs way more than five dispensaries, and the nursery locations are very incon venient for the patient populations, said Kerry Herndon, owner of Apopkabased Kerrys Nursery. Floridas new law makes legal in Florida certain strains of marijuana that are low in euphoriainducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabadiol, or CBD. The law specifically limits the composition of the seeds, plants and final product, usually an oil or paste, to no more than .8percent THC and at least 10percent CBD. The combination is purported to eliminate or dramatically reduce lifethreatening seizures in children with severe epilepsy. The law also allows patients who suffer from severe muscle spasms or cancer to be put on a compassionate use registry for the low-THC product as long as their doctors approve. DOH planned to use a lottery to select single dispensing organizations in regions where more than one application was submitted, but lobbyists and growers complained that the state would be putting epileptic children and other patients at risk by failing to ensure that the most capable organizations would be responsible for crafting the substance they ingest. This process seems to reward the promise to perform better than the ability to perform, said lobbyist Louis Rotundo, who represents the Florida Medical Cannabis Association. Department spokesman Nathan Dunn told reporters after the meeting that the agency would consider revising the rule to do away with the lottery and that the agency has fast-tracked regulations regarding the law, signed by Scott last month.

DANIELLEPORTTEUS Monroe NewsMONROE, Mich. When her beloved dog was diagnosed with bone cancer, Kathy Jay was stunned. The veterinarian asked whether she wanted to euthanize the animal that same day. I was numb, the Raisinville Township resident told the Monroe News. I thought, I just cant deal with this. With her head spinning, Jay said she wasnt ready and neither was Doc, her 175-pound Great Dane. Doc lived for several months after his diagnosis with the help of pet hospice and services provided by Four Paws Vet Wellness and Dr. Monica Turenne. He was a big dog and took up lots of room, but in my heart, when he was gone, there was a big void, Jay said. Hospice was a way to give him good quality of life, not necessarily quantity. Jay first noticed something was wrong with her dogs front paw in February. She thought it might be a sprain from the animal jumping in and out of the car. Instead, 7-year-old Doc had a small tumor. Amputation was not an option for such a large breed. We knew there was no way hed learn to maneuver on three legs, she said. A few days after the diagnosis, Jay called the vet and asked whether there was an option besides euthanasia. The staff initially didnt seem to have one. Then one of the workers told her about Turenne, who operates a mobile pet practice based in Ann Arbor that travels as far south as Monroe. My dog was my whole world, and I just wasnt ready to give up, Jay said. He rescued me when I had my two small strokes, and I needed to do what I could for him. Jays partner, Michael Shufelt of Monroe, also was attached to Doc. He would watch baseball games with the dog and take him to watch trains. To Jay, though, Doc was like her child. If a child is sick, a parent will do what they can, she said. For pet owners, we dont always have other places to turn to for support. As part of hospice treatment, Doc received massages and Reiki treatments. Jay learned the types of medication to give, the foods to feed and how to keep Doc comfortable during his final months of life. His tumor became as large as a melon before he died. Some days, he would be sick and then other days, not sick at all, Jay explained. Up until his last day, he still had the sparkle in his eyes. When the dog wouldnt eat, Jay called the vet, who offered advice on ways to keep fluids in the animals body. The entire time, Dr. Monica was always available to talk, she said. She told me Doc would pass when he was ready, and thats what he did. Doc died in May at home just hours before Turenne was scheduled to euthanize him. Turenne said she works with dogs and cats, but pet hospice is not for everyone. She begins with a consultation and explains what hospice is for animals. Hospice requires people to be dedicated and present for their pet in a lot of ways, the vet explained. The care is both physical and emotional. Its not just about pills. People who work outside the home or leave their pets for long periods of time likely would not fit the hospice clientele, Turenne said. Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Democrats have long claimed that Republicans abused their legislative powers to elect a disproportionate number of U.S. House members. Now a Florida court is lending credence to their complaint. The full impact of the Florida ruling plus a similar lawsuit pending in North Carolina wont be known for some while. For now, at least, they shine light on the fiercely partisan practice of gerrymandering, in which state officials draw congressional districts to help their party. Republicans and Democrats have engaged in gerrymandering for decades. Republicans refined the practice in 2011, a year after they won control of numerous state governments preparing to redraw congressional maps based on the 2010 census. Its one reason Republicans hold a solid House majority even though Americans cast 1.4 million more votes for Democratic House candidates than for GOP House candidates in 2012. Florida is a prime example of Democrats frustration. President Barack Obama carried the state twice, but Floridas U.S. House delegation has 17 Republicans and 10 Democrats. A Florida judge ruled Thursday that the GOP-controlled state Legislature illegally drew congressional districts to primarily benefit the Repub lican Party, and ordered them redrawn. The Legislature is expected to appeal the ruling, and this falls elections are unlikely to be affected. Republicans havent controlled the White House or U.S. Senate for more than five years. Yet their House majority now 234 to 199 looks safe this fall. Redistricting episodes in Florida and North Carolina help explain why. Republicans hold nine of North Carolinas 13 U.S. House seats, and they have solid prospects to make it 10. Their nominee is favored to win a district, which Obama lost by 19percentage points, being vacated by centrist Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre. In recent statewide elections, North Carolina has been about as evenly divided as a state can be. Obama narrowly won it once, and lost it once. Voters replaced a Democratic governor with a Republican in 2012. Each party has one U.S. senator, and this falls re-election bid by Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan is likely to be extremely close. The House delegation makeup, by contrast, seems more fitting for a reliably Republican state, like Georgia perhaps. The arrangement lacks elemental fairness, said state Senate Democratic leader Dan Blue, moments after attacking Republican school-spending cuts at a Raleigh news conference. The nations founders, Blue said, could not have envisioned congressional representation falling so out of balance with a states overall political sentiment. Several other states have sent more Republicans to Congress than their presidential voting patterns would suggest. Obama carried Ohio twice, but Republicans control its U.S. House delegation 12-4. Pennsylvania hasnt backed a GOP presidential nominee since 1988, but it has 13 House Republicans and five Democrats. The House makeup is similar in other states that Obama won twice, including Virginia (8-3 Republican), Michigan (9-5 Republican) and Wisconsin (5-3 Republican). The only state trending the other way is Arizona. Obama lost it twice, yet it has five House Democrats and four Republicans. A chief reason for the imbalance is the often politicized state-by-state practice of redrawing the Houses 435 districts after each once-a-decade Census. Districts are apportioned by population, with each state getting at least one House member. Americans mobility patterns also helped, as millions of liberals continue to move to urban areas. This so-called self-gerrymandering makes it easier for Republican mapmakers to pack as many Democratic voters as possible into a handful of districts. That helps Republicans win a larger number of districts by smaller but still-safe margins. In North Carolina, Republican officials drew three House districts that twisted and snaked to include as many black neighborhoods, and other likely Democratic areas, as possible. In the 2012 elections, these three districts recorded overwhelming Democratic majorities. Obama lost the other 10 districts by margins ranging from 13 to 23percentage points. Republicans won their 9-4 U.S. House edge even as North Carolinians cast more votes for Democratic House candidates overall. Democrats are asking the state Supreme Court to rule the redistricting unconstitutional. Black voters were packed so densely into three districts, they contend, that their overall political clout was unduly diminished. Weve got a red government imposed on a purple state, said Ferrel Guillory, a University of North Carolina professor who advised the plaintiffs. Republicans defend the map, noting that they followed state laws enacted when Democrats controlled the government. We would expect our maps to be vindicated completely, GOP state Sen. Bob Rucho said at the time. David Rouzer, who had been an aide to Republican Sen. Jesse Helms, came within 654 votes of ousting McIntyre in 2012 in the 7thDistrict, which includes several southeastern counties. Now that McIntyre is retiring, Rouzer is favored to win.A10SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION Total Skin Care Chemical Peeling Esthetics Laser Surgery Botox Therapy Laser Hair Removal Photofacial Rejuvenation Juvederm Obagi Offering a safe medical approach to cosmetic issues! www.dermatologyonline.com SUNCOAST DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN SURGERY CENTER Participating with: Medicare, BCBS, Cigna, Humana, Aetna, United Healthcare (specific plans) Board Certified American Board of Dermatology; American Society for Dermatology Surgery, Member American Association of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellow American Society for MOHS Surgery Routine screening and early detection of skin cancer is key to treatment.

AMYTAXIN Associated PressLOS ANGELES Adolescent girls in braids and pigtails and teenage boys wearing jeans and sneakers sat alongside their parents in the courtroom of Immigration Judge Frank Travieso to hear how long they might be allowed to stay in the United States. Travieso grabbed four thick books and dropped each one on his desk with a thud, warning the families in his Los Angeles courtroom about the thousands of pages of immigration laws and interpretations that could affect their cases and urging them to get a lawyer. This is even smaller print, he said of the 1,200page book containing regulations during the hearing last month. I am not trying to scare you, but Im trying to ensure your children get a full and fair hearing. He then sent them on their way and told them to report back in February. The scene is one that could become more common as the countrys already backlogged immigration courts brace for a deluge of tens of thousands of Central American children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months. The court system is so overwhelmed that it can currently take three years to get a hearing, and many believe the delays will only get worse in the months ahead. For many immigrants, the delays in the court system work in their favor because they know they have so long before their cases are resolved. This situation just happens to be a magnitude unlike anything we have ever seen, said Lauren Alder Reid, counsel for legislative and public affairs at the U.S. Justice Departments Executive Office for Immigration Review, which runs the courts. Immigration courts in the United States have long been troubled. The courts, overseen by the Department of Justice, have more than 375,000 cases being handled by just 243 judges, according to the agency. It can take months or years to get hearings for immigrants who arent in detention facilities, let alone a resolution. Immigration lawyers said judges are already setting hearings for 2017. The Obama administration has said it will move quickly to process thousands of immigrant children and families arriving on the Texas border fleeing violence and extortion from gangs in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Since October, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children have reached the U.S., prompting the government to set up temporary shelters and fly immigrants to other states to be processed. Officials have asked Congress for $3.7billion in emergency funding to cope with the crisis, including the hiring of more judges. After Central American immigrants are apprehended at the border, they are usually processed at one of several facilities that have been set up across Texas and the Southwest. Children are placed in shelters and reunited with family members in the U.S. before being told to report to an immigration office and ultimately given a date before a judge in a process that can take years. In immigration court, many immigrants fail to attend their hearings and are issued deportation orders. More than one in five immigrants not in federal custody were given court orders in their absence during the 2013 fiscal year, according to court statistics. Obama administration critics say the huge delays only encourage more immigrants to try to come here and turn themselves in at the border, knowing theyll be allowed to wait years for their cases to be resolved. The system is so dysfunctional, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. They get to stay, and the more time they spend here, the more difficult it is to get them removed. Vaughan said courts ought to handle cases in reverse order, tackling those on the border first to speed up deportations and deter would-be immigrants and stem the surge. Since the influx, the immigration courts have temporarily reassigned seven judges to hear cases in southern Texas and three judges to handle hearings at a recently created New Mexico detention facility via teleconferencing, Alder Reid said. She could not say how many cases have been postponed but expects the latest influx of immigrants will have a significant impact. The number of nondetained backlog cases is going to rise from overwhelming to overwhelming times ten, said Bruce Einhorn, a retired immigration judge in Los Angeles. Until we enlarge the court system, we should brace ourselves for a bloody mess. The huge flow of immigrants into the court system has also created legal issues for the immigrants themselves. Attorneys are typically not provided at government expense or required in immigration court, and children may end up in court on their own with only a relative to vouch for them. Megan McKenna, advocacy director for Kids in Need of Defense, said her organizations offices in Houston and New York were flooded this month with requests for pro-bono lawyers. She estimates the number of children lacking attorneys has jumped from about half to at least 70percent since the influx began three years ago. Immigrant advocates fearing the administration may try to curtail childrens access to the courts to cope with the crunch sued this week to try to get the government to give them lawyers. At the border, adults who fail to prove they have a fear of returning to their country could be deported more quickly and without seeing a judge. Government officials and lawmakers are debating ways to handle the childrens cases more swiftly, much like they do with Mexican youth, who often dont get a hearing in court. Unaccompanied children from Central America, however, are reunited with family and given a court date. Those abandoned or abused by their parents may apply for a special legal status, and those fleeing violence can apply for asylum at a government office. The immigration courts currently have more than 41,000 juvenile cases, including those involving unaccompanied bordercrossers as well as longtime residents facing deportation and adults who were initially apprehended as children. In immigration court in Los Angeles, Marta Vasquez, 55, was told by Travieso to bring her teenage daughter back next year with an update on her application for asylum. Vasquez, who came here fleeing an abusive husband in Guatemala nine years ago, left the building without fear that her family would be torn apart by deportation at least not any time soon.

Immigration courts backlogged by years of staffing shortages and tougher enforcement face an even more daunting challenge since tens of thousands of Central Americans began arriving on the U.S. border fleeing violence back home. FIVE THINGS TO KNOW An overlooked element in the immigration debate is the nations Immigration Court system, where many of the newly arrived migrants will have their cases resolved. Here are key facts about the court system and its struggles: OVERFLOWING CASELOAD The number of immigrants with cases before the immigration courts has jumped 7 percent since October to more than 375,000, the agencys highest caseload to date. The number of cases before the immigration courts rose by 23,000 during the previous fiscal year. WAIT TIMES The average time a pending case has been before the immigration courts is now 587days, which is about 19months, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Immigration lawyers say getting a hearing can take much longer than that. For example, in Los Angeles, the average time a case has been before the immigration court is more than two years, data show. COURT LOCATIONS The country has 59 immigration courts overseen by the U.S. Department of Justice. Some are inside detention centers, while others deal with immigrants who are not detained. The states with the biggest immigration caseloads are California, New York and Texas. DEPORTATION VERSUS RELIEF Immigration judges decided more than 140,000 initial cases during the 2013 fiscal year, which doesnt include cases reopened or returned on appeal. More than two-thirds of the immigrants were ordered deported, while about 17percent qualified for relief. Four years earlier, about 82 percent of the initial cases decided by the courts ended in deportation, according to agency statistics. NATIONALITIES The top five countries of origin of immigrants with initial cases decided by the court during the 2013 fiscal year were Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and China, according to the Justice Departments Executive Office for Immigration Review.

MARGARETFOSMOE South Bend TribuneSOUTH BEND, Ind. No one is sure when super-tight clothing, visible bra straps, flip flops and cleavage on display became ubiquitous in the workplace, but Linda Przybyszewski knows one thing: The 1960s had a lot to do with it. In the 1950s, the goal was to look sophisticated, said Przybyszewski, a University of Notre Dame history professor and author of the new book The Lost Art of Dress: The Women Who Once Made America Stylish. After the 1960s, the goal of looking sophisticated was abandoned and largely forgotten, she told the South Bend Tribune. The Lost Art of Dress chronicles the careers of a group of women in the first half of the 20th century Przybyszewski calls them the Dress Doctors who taught girls and women how to sew and dress based on principles of art, design and economy. The Dress Doctors offered advice in home economics classes, on radio shows, at womens clubs and in popular magazines. In Przybyszewskis view, American women have forgotten how to dress for work or leisure chasing trends, choosing the wrong materials, and donning garments for the sake of fad rather than elegance or sophistication. The book has struck a chord. It made the New York TimesSunday Book Review, and Przybyszewski has been interviewed on national radio shows and was featured on CBS Sunday Morning. Popular TV shows, including Downton Abbey and Mad Men, have made Americans curious about earlier eras when people dressed more formally and elegantly. At Notre, Dame, Przybyszewski her students have nicknamed her Professor Pski teaches a course titled A Nation of Slobs. Its an interdisciplinary class that examines the history of dress during the 20th century, the economics of the garment industry and the shifts in public tastes regarding clothing. I draw attention to two enormous shifts, she said. The first was during the 1920s, when hem lines rose to knee level and women abandoned corsets. The second was during the 1960s when women gave up girdles and popular fashion turned from elegance to grown women wanting to dress as youthful as possible, including in thigh-high baby doll dresses. Emma Terhaar, 20, a Notre Dame senior, took Przybyszewskis course. She said the class made her consider fashion and clothing with a more discerning eye. It made me think more about dressing my age, Terhaar said. For example, she thinks cutoff shorts are a teen style and shes moving away from that look. As a result of the course, Terhaar said shes more likely to spend a bit more money on a well-made, classic item of clothing that she expects to wear a long time. Przybyszewski grew up in suburban Chicago and has been sewing her own clothes since childhood. She still sews, sometimes on a 1952 Singer Slant-OMatic sewing machine she inherited from her grandmother. For this interview, the professor was wearing a sleeveless blueand whitestriped sundress that she sewed from a vintage dress pattern. In the 1950s, such a dress would have been appropriate for a gathering of friends on a suburban patio, she said. Worn in the city, fashion would have required a jacket, she said. There is an unwritten dress code that college students follow, including those at Notre Dame, Przybyszewski said. The accepted code is generally pants, shorts and other casual attire. If students dare to dress differently, such as wearing a tie or a tailored skirt, theyll find themselves facing such questions as, Do you have a job interview? she said. She doesnt limit her critique to women, referring to todays unofficial uniform among young men of cargo shorts, T-shirts and baseball caps. I think our standards for male clothing are so low, people are just hoping they bathe, she said. In the days of the Dress Doctors, women learned to choose clothing carefully, examining details of design, seeking out quality fabric and cuts, and expecting to wear a dress for at least three years. Americans have been chasing cheap prices for so long, weve hit bottom (in terms of quality), the professor said.A12SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION N EW P ATIENT S PECIAL We Cater To Cowards!

Expires 8/13/14 NEW PATIENT COUPON $ 50 OFF Aronia berry gaining market foothold in US Associated PressMISSOURI VALLEY, Iowa A new fruit that research says packs more antioxidants than popular superfoods like blueberries, acai berries and goji berries is establishing itself in the aisles of mainstream grocery stores, showing up in everything from juices to powdered supplements to baby food. Its rise from being a novelty item at farmers markets into a multimillion-dollar U.S. industry even includes a name change, from the common chokeberry so named centuries ago by European settlers who found the tart, astringent berry more pretty than palatable to the aronia berry, derived from its genus, Aronia melanocarpa. The native North American berry was introduced in Russia and eastern Europe in the early 20th century and has been cultivated there for juices and wines. Now, farmers throughout the upper Midwest are planting the shrubs by the thousands every year. But the industrys roots in the U.S. can be traced to Sawmill Hollow Family Farm in the Loess Hills of western Iowa, where most in the industry believe the first bushes were planted for commercial cultivation in the U.S. Andrew Pittz, 28, is the driving force behind the aronia berrys emergence. His family was looking for a crop they could cultivate on the hilly, silt-heavy soil near the Missouri River, and in 1997, Pittzs parents planted some 200 bushes. The bush grows well in the Midwest, has few pests and doesnt have to be replanted every year. The Pittz family was successful: Sawmill Hollow products now are sold in about half of HyVees 237 stores, and in all of Whole Foods 45 Midwest-region stores, according to spokeswomen for the chains. Rather than keep the berry and its economic potential under wraps, Pittz and his family have been spreading word far and wide especially throughout Iowa. The farm holds an annual field day that draws thousands in September, and Pittz planted bushes in all 99 Iowa counties last year. Even Iowa State University is helping promote the berry as a value-added crop and a good way to diversify farm income, offering grants to help people get started. We want the aronia berry to be to Iowas Heartland what the peach is to Georgia. Pittz said. His family also has taught others how to plant, grow and market the almost black-purple, pea-sized berries. They even share best practices for pruning the bushes for maximum yield, which they developed over nearly 18 years of trial and error. A mature bush at four to five years can produce up to 20 pounds. Consumers are taking notice of the potential health benefits, said Stacey Loftus, Hy-Vees health and wellness supervisor. Research published last year in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry says aronias oxygen radical absorbance capacity a standard measurement of antioxidant strength shows the berry has one of the highest values ever recorded for a fruit. I dont think this is a passing fad, she said. Antioxidants help protect cells from damage, although there are questions in the medical field as to what role antioxidants play in helping prevent human disease. Federal regulators have, in recent years, targeted companies that have made unsubstantiated health claims about antioxidant-containing products. Last year, the Federal Trade Commission upheld a judges decision that POM Wonderful made deceptive claims that its pomegranate products could treat or prevent heart disease, prostate cancer and other illnesses. The FTCs action is pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Associated PressAndrew Pittz of the Sawmill Hollow aronia berryfarmcarries aronia berry seedlings April 24 in Missouri Valley, Iowa. A few years ago, few people had ever heard of the aronia berry, a pretty but tart fruit. Now, the berry has set its sights on becoming the next superfood and is in hundreds of products worldwide.

Associated PressSOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. This is a town where people are so rich that a $2 million home can be a handymans special. A town where the thrift shop is stocked with donations of designer dresses and handbags. But Southampton, with its privet hedges, pristine beaches and some estates costing tens of millions, also is where 40 percent of children get free or reducedcost school lunches, where a food pantry serves up to 400 clients a month and where some doctors and nurses share homes owned by the local hospital because they cant afford to buy or rent. Studies show the wealth gap separating the rich from everyone else is widening, and few places in the country illustrate that as starkly as Long Islands Hamptons Americas summer playground for the haves and have-mores, where even middle-class workers struggle with the high cost of living. We have a tremendous amount of millionaires who live 3 miles from the food pantry, and they really have no idea that theres a need in this community, said Mary Ann Tupper, who retired last month after 21 years as the executive director of Human Resources of the Hamptons, a charity that assists 6,000 people annually through its food pantry and other services for the working poor. In the summer theyre working and everything is pretty good, but come the winter, all the nannies,the gardeners, the pool people, all those people are out of work, and then theres no money, Tupper said. The income disparity is tremendous. Kerry Lewendoski, who succeeded Tupper, adds: The people arent just coming here to work in the summer. They live here; they have established homes and kids enrolled in the schools. Southampton is their home, and they still have trouble getting by. Located on southeastern Long Island 80 miles from New York City, Southampton is one of several towns and villages stretching east along 40 miles of the Atlantic Ocean that collectively are known as the Hamptons. Census figures showed a 2010 population of 57,000 and a median income of $78,815. But statistics in the Hamptons are an elusive notion, since many of the summertime denizens with their multimillion-dollar incomes identify themselves as residents of New York City or elsewhere. In the first quarter of 2014, the average selling price for a home in Southampton town was $1,845,431, though some oceanfront estates go for over $100 million. Many of those who work in the Hamptons painters, landscapers teachers, even journalists live west of the region in suburban Long Island and commute as many as three hours round-trip daily. From early spring to late autumn, the one primary road in and out of the Hamptons is jammed most mornings with pickup trucks and vans filled with tradespeople headed east. Theres tons of work out here because this is where the money is, David Hahn said while trimming 16-foot hedges on a 10-acre Southampton estate where he has worked for two decades. His 30-mile commute sometimes takes up to three hours round-trip. Kimberly Piazza is a secretary in her husbands sod business and lives in the North Sea community in Southampton town, several miles north of the oceanfront estates. Coming out of the local general store, she said local milk prices are as high as $5.99 a gallon and eggs sell for up to $4 a dozen nearly double what those staples cost elsewhere on Long Island. Gasoline prices are 50 cents to a dollar more a gallon at most stations in the Hamptons. The image is that were all pretty much rich, hoity-toity, well-to-do people, she said. And while you do have some of those people, a majority of us are still working-class. At Southampton Hospital the regions primary medical facility that has 25,000 emergency room visits annually administrators wrestled for years with staffing shortages because qualified applicants could not afford the cost of living. The hospital has since purchased three houses nearby and allows 17 nurses to live there as part of their compensation package, said spokeswoman Marsha Kenny. A similar program exists for resident doctors, with a goal to keep some working full-time at the hospital when they complete their training. Last month, over the objection of neighbors, the town board unanimously approved a plan to build a 28-unit apartment complex, in part to provide affordable housing for people who work in the area. R. Couri Hay, a Manhattan public relations executive and contributing editor at Hamptons Magazine, said many of the wealthy who summer in the Hamptons are concerned about the year-round workers and participate in many philanthropic events to help local charities. All the fancy people paying $1,000 a ticket for a charity fundraiser, theyre spending this money to show support for the community, Hay said. While Hay conceded there is a wealth gap, he suggested some of the service workers reap higher rewards in summer because they charge their clients more. The fantasy is that everything in the Hamptons is because of cheap labor. Thats simply not true. I wouldnt say most people are underpaid.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 A13 000INEZ Termites Lawn & Shrub Care Grills Holiday Lighting Fire Pits Mowing & Weeding Pavers Structural Fumigation Fireplace Shrub & Tree Trimming Kitchens Ponds & Water Features Landscape Wall, Steps & Columns Irrigation Household Pest Control Mosquito Misting Systems Installed Come and see our do-it-yourself store for all of your professional pest, fertilizer, irrigation and pond needs.

In Hamptons, wealth gap perhaps most stark Forty percent of children on free or reduced lunches in playground of the rich Associated PressDALLAS Efforts to eliminate extra pay for teachers who earn advanced degrees are gaining momentum in a small but growing number of U.S. schools, stirring a national debate about how best to compensate quality educators and angering teachers who say the extra training is valuable. More than half of the nations teachers have masters degrees or higher, but the changing salary structure is giving pause to others considering the same path. Texas two largest school districts, in Houston and Dallas, recently eliminated advanced degree pay going forward, following the example of North Carolina, where lawmakers last year started phasing it out. A few other states have made tweaks to reduce how much advanced degrees factor into pay. Those championing dropping the extra pay say advanced degrees dont necessarily translate into better student test scores. They say the money is better spent elsewhere, such as on rewarding teachers deemed most effective. Y et the backlash in North Carolina grew so intense that the state is now looking at reinstating the extra pay for those teaching classes related to the subject in which they have an advanced degree. Its among teacher pay issues lawmakers are considering this summer. In April, the Wake County Public School System the largest in North Carolina with about 150,000 said more than 600 teachers had left since the beginning of the school year, an increase of 41 percent over the same period the year before. The extra pay for having a masters degree in North Carolina accounted for 10 percent of a teachers base salary from the state. In the Houston and Dallas school districts, the extra pay started at about $1,000 more annually for first-year teachers. For teachers, more training may not mean higher salaries Districts move to phase out pay for advanced degrees

Atlantic Citys crumbling casino market disintegrated even further Saturday as the owners of the Trump Plaza casino said they expect to shut down in midSeptember. Trump Entertainment Resorts told The Associated Press that no final decision has been made on the Boardwalk casino. But the company said it expects the casino to close its doors Sept. 16. Notices warning employees of the expected closing will go out to the casinos 1,000plus employees Monday. If Trump Plaza closes, Atlantic City could lose a third of its casinos and a quarter of its casino workforce in less than nine months. The Atlantic Club closed in January, the Showboat is closing next month and Revel might do likewise if a buyer cant be found in bankruptcy court. Trump Entertainment Resorts has tried for years to sell Trump Plaza, the poorest performing casino in Atlantic City. A deal to sell it last year for $20 million to a California firm fell through. It won less than $73 million from gamblers in all of last year, ranking last out of the 12 casinos that operated then. So far this year it has taken in nearly $21 million, down almost 27 percent from the same period last year.Police: Wife staged husbands suicideAVON LAKE, Ohio An Ohio woman who called 911 to report that her husband committed suicide by suffocating himself has been charged with his 2011 murder. A three-year investigation into the death of 55-year-old Michael Gabel concluded he didnt commit suicide and that his wife, Jeane Harrington, killed him, police said. She had reported Gabels death to police, saying she found him dead with plastic wrap around his head. We know that suicide in this manner is very unusual, Duane Streator, police chief of Avon Lake, told reporters Friday. Streator said there was no immediate evidence of a struggle, but the Lorain County coroner ultimately determined Gabel died of asphyxiation, blows to his head and body, and electrical burns. Harrington, 56, was arrested Thursday, and her son 11 when Gabel died was turned over to a relative. Harrington told police she owned a stun gun and had used it several times on Gabel in a fight earlier that evening that she described as mutual. She said the disagreement centered on the couples financial woes. Authorities now believe she stunned Gabel multiple times before suffocating him with industrial-strength, restaurant-grade plastic wrap.

Anxiety is gripping Lebanon following a spate of suicide bombings, and an ongoing security sweep targeting militants has triggered a wave of cancellations of hotel and flight bookings. The militants involved are said by security officials to be part of a network of alleged terrorist sleeper cells planning suicide bombings targeting security leaders and civilians alike. That has fueled concerns that Sunni extremists surging in Iraq and Syria were taking their fight to Lebanon next. Now, instead of the relatively calm summer that Lebanese had hoped would bring some badly needed cash for the economy, workers put up roadblocks to guard against car bombs. Guards at malls search shoppers more meticulously. At the World Cup Fan Park in Beirut, organizers erected metal detectors at two entrances to the open air complex with three giant screens. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA commercial airliner crosses the waxing gibbous moon Friday on its final approach to Los Angeles Airport as viewed from Whittier, Calif., one day before a supermoon. Associated PressGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Ignoring international appeals for a cease-fire, Israel on Saturday widened its range of Gaza bombing targets to civilian institutions with suspected Hamas ties and announced it would hit northern Gaza with great force to prevent rocket attacks from there on Israel. More than 156 Palestinians have been killed in five days of bombardment. One of the Israeli strikes hit a center for the disabled where Palestinians said two patients were killed and four people seriously hurt. In a second attack, on Saturday evening, an Israeli warplane flattened the home of Gazas police chief and damaged a nearby mosque as evening prayers ended, killing at least 18 people, officials said. In New York, the U.N. Security Council called unanimously for a ceasefire, while Britains foreign minister said he will discuss cease-fire efforts with his American, French and Germancounterparts today. So far, neither Israel nor Gazas Hamas rulers have signaled willingness to stop. Israel has carried out more than 1,200 air strikes this week to try to diminish Hamas ability to fire rockets at Israel, and the chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Motti Almoz, said Saturday there would be more strikes, especially in northern Gaza. We are going to attack there with great force in the next 24 hours due to a very large concentration of Hamas efforts in that area, he said. Late Saturday, the military said it was ordering Palestinians in northern Gaza to evacuate for their own safety. Gazas Interior Ministry urged residents in the area to ignore Israels warnings and to stay in their homes, saying the announcement was Israeli psychological warfare and an attempt to create confusion. Meanwhile, Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza, has fired nearly 700 rockets and mortars at Israel this week and said it wouldnt be the first to cease fire. In a sign that the conflict might widen, Israel fired into Lebanon late Saturday in response to two rockets fired from there at northern Israel. There were no injuries or damage, but Israel fears militant groups in Lebanon may try to open a second front. Israel has said its acting in self-defense against rockets that have disrupted life across much of the country.It also accuses Hamas of using Gazas civilians as human shields by firing rockets from there. Though the exact breakdown of casualties remains unclear, dozens of the dead also have been civilians. The offensive marks the heaviest fighting since a similar eight-day campaign in November 2012 to stop Gaza rocket fire. Israel has massed thousands of troops along the border in preparation for a possible ground invasion, with soldiers atop vehicles mobilized and ready to move if the order arrives. Associated PressSmoke rises after a cargo crossing between Israel and Gaza was shelled Saturday. Israeli airstrikes targeting Hamas in Gaza hit a mosque and a center for the disabled where two women were killed, raising the Palestinian death toll from the offensive to more than 150, Palestinian officials said. Security Council urges Gaza truce; no sign of lull Look! Up in the sky! Its supermoon! Because our celestial neighbor is relatively close to Earth, the the full moon Saturday appeared to be unusually large, but its just an illusion caused by its position in the sky. That distance varies because the moon follows an elliptical orbit. When its close and full, it appears bigger and brighter than normal, although the difference can be hard to detect. Two other supermoons will come later this summer on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9. Associated Press Summer supermoon Associated PressGRIGNY, France It looked like any shantytown the world over tarps to keep out the weather, scattered bits of trash that no truck would ever collect, plastic buckets to lug water. Then one of the inhabitants of this Roma camp on the northwest edge of Paris, a teenage boy named Darius, was beaten into a coma, apparently by residents of a neighboring housing project. Within hours, the Roma vanished, seeking sanctuary in a new location on the fringes of one of the worlds wealthiest cities. Three weeks later, 16-yearold Darius remains unconscious. His family is in hiding. Police have made no arrests. France is coming under increasing pressure to answer allegations that it is encouraging harassment of Europes poorest minority group in hopes that the Roma, also known as Gypsies, will leave the country. About 20,000 are living in France, a number that appears to have changed little despite a decade spent bulldozing the squats that spring up, season after season, on unclaimed land. In 2013, the number of people evicted equaled the number still here, according to government figures. With job prospects and discrimination even worse back in their homelands in Eastern Europe, Roma migrants keep coming back. French government policy on the Roma seems to be in crisis. The official in charge of Roma resettlement lost his job last week. The government will not say why, nor whether he will be replaced. Police say the Roma give contradictory accounts of attacks against them. Roma say they are scared of retribution and distrustful of authorities in a country whose image as a beacon for the downtrodden is sullied by its long record of abuse of the minority. Frances Roma policies are under criticism by Europes top human rights court as well as Amnesty International and other organizations. Despite European Union borders that opened to the Roma this year, life is about to get even more difficult for them in France: The government is launching its annual operation to destroy Roma shantytowns, scheduled with the argument that homeless children suffer less during summer vacation. The camp at the Paris suburb of Grigny is among those coming down any day. Of the 300 Roma squatting there, 10 families will be resettled. The town of 30,000, the poorest in its region and boasting the largest public housing project in Europe, has chosen the 46 people who will be offered housing based on their perceived ability to integrate. The families themselves will not know who among them has been selected until the camp comes down in what is euphemistically called a liberation of the land. We did what we could, but we cannot welcome 300 people, said Frederic Rey, the towns spokesman. Were building what we can with the means we have.

COOL, QUIET, CONTAINED EXCURSIONS Page A15SUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE AMANDAMIMS CorrespondentStalactites like icicles point down from the caverns ceilings and stalagmites rise up from the floor. These, in addition to flowstone, soda straws and other formations, make up its damp interior, coloring it shades of brown, glittering white and orange. In the cool, quiet depths, nothing stirs, save for the bats that live there, and the occasional salamander, crayfish or snake. The formations themselves are moving and growing with every drop of water that comes off the ceiling but so slowly that it will take hundreds of years to see a difference. While Florida might be better known for the underwater caves scuba divers love to explore, there are also many dry caves in the state. But only one of them offers tours to the public, and its at Florida Caverns State Park in Marianna, about 65 miles west of Tallahassee. This is the only open-air tour cavern in the state of Florida, said Adam DeWitt, a seasonal park ranger who led a tour of the caverns Thursday. A lot of people who come here are sort of state park gurus who have visited other states and been in caves and caverns before, but they say this one is one of their favorites because of the formations that are in it. They havent seen anything like it. The main cavern is 65 feet deep and the temperature inside is a cool 65 degrees, a pleasant break from the 90-degree weather above ground. There are 34 named caverns in the park, but only one is open to the public. It was discovered in 1937 when a large tree fell during a storm and exposed an entrance. The tours attract people from all walks of life and even some celebrities. DeWitt recently gave a private tour of the caverns to rapper Vanilla Ice, and a couple of low-budget science fiction movies have been filmed there. Tours last about 45 minutes and cost $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 to 12. They take place Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. The tours are a big draw to Florida Caverns State Park, but there is much more to the property including a freshwater spring swimming area and paddling, hiking and horseback riding opportunities that makes it a worthwhile family vacation spot. Many of the parks guests are families that come from other parts of Florida, Georgia and Alabama and stay at the full-facility campground in RVs or tents during long weekends and weeklong vacations. For more information about the park or cave tours, visit www.floridastate parks.org/floridacaverns or call 850482-9598.

A16SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: I am a single mother of a wonderful 5-yearold son and am expecting another baby in the winter. My sons father cheated and lied and then left me for another woman. He briefly came back, and I thought he meant to stay, but it was only a one-night stand. I became pregnant, and he left. He wants nothing to do with the children. I love my son and unborn child, but I dont know how it feels to be part of a loving couple. Ive been single for four years and am at the point where I want to settle down and marry someone special. I want the picket fence and the dog. I dont know how to meet guys, and it feels as though I will never find my better half. In the past four years, Ive been walking around heartbroken. Ive been fat, thin, wild and single. I feel so alone. I realize that my son loves me, but I have no one to sleep beside and make love to. Am I giving off some kind of loser aroma thats repelling men? Its like I have a sign printed on my head saying, Run away. Am I just meant to be alone? Miss LonelyDear Miss Lonely: More likely, you are giving off a vibe that says, Im desperate, because that is how you are coming across to us. The worst thing you can do is grab hold of the first guy who shows any interest. Place your complete focus on what is best for your mental health and most stable for your kids. Men who float in and out of your life arent the answer. Take however long you need to sort this out. In the past four years, you havent done the work to change your approach, so get some counseling. Create a solid environment where your children can thrive. (Your ex should be paying child support.) Become a woman you want your kids to respect. Then you will have a chance of finding the right guy.

Page A18SUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS C.J. RISAK CorrespondentAlbert Giacchi died 13 years ago at the age of 76. A couple of years prior to his death, he was given at least some credit due to him for what he did during World War II, when he was given the opportunity to sail once again on the S.S. Jeremiah OBrien.Citrus County is home to several merchant marines whose service during World War II allowed Allied countries like Great Britain and the Soviet Union to survive. The supplies delivered by slow-moving Liberty ships (12 knots) in huge convoys, with German U-boats and aircraft a constant threat, were instrumental. And yet, as Rose Valent Giacchis companion for the last 25 years of his life will attest, he rarely got his due. They were often called draft dodgers because they chose to serve as merchant marines, despite the danger they endured providing those muchneeded services. Giacchi was 18 in 1943 and was trying to get work to help his family, which at the time included three brothers, two older and one younger. Their mother had died when he was 9, and Albert left school in the 10th grade to try and find work in his hometown of Jersey City, New Jersey. He happened to see one of those Uncle Sam posters for the Merchant Marine, with him pointing a finger and saying, I Want You!, so he joined, Valent said. Giacchi first sailed on the S.S. Costana, serving in the engine room as a wiper, on a voyage that lasted from Sept. 2 until Sept. 27 in 1943. After that he would serve on the S.S. Front Royal, S.S. John Woolman, S.S. Jesse Billingsley, the S.S. James R. Randall, the Jeremiah OBrien, the S.S. Julia P Shaw, and the S.S. Fort Mims, also serving as a fireman water tender (FWT) and as an oiler. Giacchi left the Merchant Marine in 1947 and found work in Jersey City using the mechanical skills he developed during the service. He and Valent moved to Floral City in 1990; Valent still lives in that same house. While in the Merchant Marine, he took convoy runs to England, Italy, France, Belgium, Saudi Arabia and into the frigid waters off Murmansk in Russia, as well as to India, the Philippines and China. After leaving, he had no real desire to return until he and Valent learned of the renovation of the Jeremiah OBrien and even then, Valent had to talk him into making the trip to Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco. Giacchi, who was a crew member on the Jeremiah OBrien when the war ended in August 1945, had many of his memories about that ship and the others he sailed on brought back by that six-hour cruise. Among them were an Indian paint crew in Calcutta given rags to clean up some of their mess, rags they quickly exchanged for the shabby clothes they were wearing. Then, as Valent recalled, there were the Australian war brides that were being brought back to the U.S. aboard the Jeremiah OBrien early in 1946. They were so excited, and (crewmen) told them, Its not the land of gold, you know. And then they were so disillusioned and they were crying with their babies. Then one of (the crewmen) said, We got hillbillies there, and they said, Whats a hillbilly? They were scared. They were young, about 18 years old or something like that. Giacchis final cruise aboard the Jeremiah OBrien he would die from colon cancer two years later reminded him that he ended up getting what he wanted when he first joined the Merchant Marine: adventure and travel, the good and bad elements attached to both. And on that trip he got the coat memorializing his service. The (Jeremiah OBriens) captain called him up to the flying bridge, Valent recalled, and he said You earned this, and he gave him the jacket. Special to the ChronicleAlbert Giacchi, who died in 2001, poses with a painting of the S.S. Jeremiah OBrien, the ship he served on during World War II.

Todd Dunn, from the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, will escort two cadets to Hong Kong as part of an international exchange program for Sea Cadets from around the world. They will be there from July 28 through Aug. 5. The commanding officer of Manatee Division, which drills at U.S. Coast Guard Station Yankeetown, was surprised to hear the great news. In 2011, I was selected to go to Sweden on an exchange. I thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but decided to apply again and see what happened, Dunn said. I was very happy to be selected to lead our cadets to Hong Kong. Cadets from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Sweden, Singapore, South Korea and Japan will meet in Hong Kong to train with the Hong Kong Sea Cadet Corps, as well as take in cultural activities at famous sites in the area. It is primarily a cultural exchange, but with an emphasis on appreciation of naval service and developing a spirit of international cooperation. Although we will be the guests of Hong Kongs Sea Cadet Corps, Dunn said, we will be learning how to work and train together as part of an internationally diverse team. The two American cadets are from Michigan and California, both high performers in the Sea Cadet program. The cadets are already friends after meeting at a Sea Cadet SCUBA training in the Florida Keys two summers ago. They hadnt realized they had both applied for and been selected for the Hong Kong exchange and were surprised to see each others names on the notification emails. This year, Sea Cadets from the United States are going on International Exchanges to Bermuda, Canada, South Korea, Scotland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Cadets traveling abroad only have to pay a small fee to help defray costs with most of the travel, food and lodging being provided for them. For more information about the Sea Cadet program, visit www.sea cadets.org or email Dunn at tdunn@manateediv.org. Sea Cadet leader going to Hong Kong Lt.

We are making changes in the Adopt-a-Trail program, by doing away with the signage along the trail, and instead will have one large plaque in the kiosk at the Apopka Trailhead. Each Adopt-aTrail participant will have their name listed. The reason for this change is that the signs are outdated and many of the posts holding the signs needed to be replaced. The new system will be more streamlined and will save money as well. We do appreciate all of the time and effort that the volunteers put into this program each month. If you are unfamiliar with our Adopt-a-Trail program, volunteers select a section of the trail and agree to be responsible for picking up trash and keeping their section clean. There are 33 sections along the trail for participation by volunteers. The cleaning can be done while you are riding your bike or you can walk your section, as I do on mine. At the current time, we do have some sections available, so if you are interested, please give me a call at 352-527-3263. The 20th annual Rails to Trails Bike Ride will be on Sunday, Oct. 5, on the Withlacoochee State Trail. We are in full swing of getting our sponsorships for this ride. There will be over 1,000 cyclists coming to Inverness some the day before the ride and staying a day or so after the ride. This is a big event for the City of Inverness and the surrounding areas. We need large and small sponsors. This can be in the form of a monetary contribution or prizes to be given out on the day of the ride to preregistered riders. We also would invite you to be a volunteer on ride day. We have a job for everyone. If you would like more information on either of these requests, I can be contacted at the telephone number shown at the bottom of this article. If you would like to sign up to be a participant in the ride, you can go to www.railstotrailsonline.co m and either sign up online or download the application and after completing it, mail it to the address shown, along with your entry fee. Have you liked us on Facebook yet? You can get news, see great pictures and connect with other trail users. Heather and Bonnie post daily photos, facts and information about the trail, along with things to see. On the Facebook.com main page, search for Rails to Trails of the Withlacoochee Inc., then click on the thumbs up like button and then you can share and get a conversation going. We have had several trees down on the trail lately, caused by rain putting weight on the branches, thus causing them to break and fall on the trail. The Wednesday work crew has been doing a lot of chipping and trimming lately. When a tree falls on the trail, it needs to be taken care of ASAP This even applies to weekends and holidays. Thankfully, we seem to find someone willing to work on fast notice. It is still very hot outside now, so be sure you have plenty of water with you whether riding, walking, running, etc. Be sure to use sunscreen on exposed skin. Might not hurt to have mosquito spray with you, as well. Thank you for your comments. I can be reached at 352-527-3263.

Sponsors sought for annual bike ride on trail Al HarnageRAILS TO TRAILS ADAM SCHRECK Associated PressDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Now that hes had a taste of running the worlds busiest air hub for international passengers, Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths is determined to hang on to the honor while setting his sights on an even bigger prize: beating Atlanta for the title of busiest airport on the planet. Dubai International Airport has been creeping up the aviation traffic rankings for years, fueled largely by the rapid expansion of hometown champion Emirates and its younger sibling, low-cost carrier FlyDubai. Both airlines and the airport are owned by the emirates government. The most recent figures compiled by Airports Council International, covering the past 12 months through March 2014, show that Dubai at least for now has Heathrow beat for the crown of most international passenger traffic. It ended 2013 in second place behind the European hub. Griffiths isnt shy about calling his facility, which handled 66.4 million passengers last year, the worlds largest international airport. But the 56-yearold Briton was quick to hedge that claim during a recent interview with The Associated Press, saying he wants a bit more data and to get through a major runway overhaul thats reduced flight numbers to proclaim that quite loudly. Once weve got through summer 2014 well have a look at the numbers and see if we can accurately claim that title, hopefully forever, he said. The airport Griffiths oversees, with its mall-like duty free halls, tranquil Zen gardens and luxury car raffles, still has room to grow before it can boast being the worlds busiest airport when all flights foreign and domestic are taken into account. Griffiths thinks its just a matter of time likely before the decade is out. His airport ended last year at No. 7, with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in the top spot. But its growing much faster than the competition. Dubai is the only airport in the top 10 posting double-digit percentage point gains. Griffiths joined Dubai Airports in 2007 after a stint as managing director at Londons Gatwick, Britains second-biggest airport. He is a self-described petrolhead with a love for anything that moves and an avid organist a passion that helps inform his job and its many moving parts. Running a multi-faceted organization like an airport ... is very much like being part of an orchestra or playing the organ, he said. Youve got a lot of different strands that are moving independently of each other that you have to bring them in line so that they make perfect harmony together. Below his office, not far from where arriving passengers wait to get their passports stamped, construction workers are noisily working to expand Dubai International once again. A new concourse that will be connected to an existing terminal by automated train is due to open in the first three months of next year. It promises an eclectic mix of local and international restaurants ranging from Krispy Kreme up to an eatery boasting dishes by Wolfgang Puck. It is part of a broader $7.8 billion expansion effort meant to boost the airports capacity to 90 million passengers annually by 2018. Atlanta handled 94.4 million last year. Construction crews also are racing through the steamy summer months to complete the runway project, which involves resurfacing one strip while adding taxiways, exits and improved lighting to the other. That project, due to finish later in July, forced Griffiths team to cut just over a quarter of flights during the 80-day project. Many of them shifted operations to Dubais newest airport, Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central, which promises to be far bigger than Dubai International with an eventual capacity of 160 million passengers. It opened for cargo flights in 2010 and received its first passengers in October. Emirates breakneck growth is the engine driving Dubai Internationals expansion, Griffiths said. The carrier is the Mideasts biggest airline and the worlds largest user of both the Boeing 777 and the double-decker Airbus A380 longrange jets. Much more work still needs to be done on the new airport before Emirates can move all its operations there sometime next decade. To keep up with the increased traffic at Dubai International, officials are searching for places to park additional aircraft, working on improving passenger flow through the airport and looking for ways to manage the airspace more efficiently. Griffiths said his main obsession for now is making sure that the gap between running out of space at the old airport he expects it will see 103 million passengers by 2020 and building up enough of the new one is as small as possible. It is a very significant undertaking to be operating the worlds largest international airport while youre building from scratch what will then become the worlds largest international airport within the same city, he said. Thats the sort of opportunity that comes less than once in a lifetime. Briton boss of bustling hub Dubai Airport soars in rankings of worlds busiest Associated PressDubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths, left, a 56-year-old Briton, talks with one of his Emirati staff June 17 while he is visiting the Joint Control Room which is essentially the nerve center of operations for the airport in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Now that hes had a taste of running the worlds busiest air hub for international passengers, Griffiths is determined to hang on to the honor while setting his sights on an even bigger prize: beating Atlanta for the title of busiest airport on the planet.

Special to the ChronicleWhen a Citrus County Mosquito Control inspector responded to a call at a residence in Crystal River, the homeowner advised him that not only did she have mosquitoes, but there had been a stray cat stuck up in her tree four days. An inspection of the tree confirmed that there was indeed a cat in the crook of a tall live oak tree, approximately 35 feet up the trunk. Although he didnt seem to be in any distress, and he meowed and made gestures with his paw towards the ground perhaps hoping to reach down to the inspector on the ground he made no attempt to turn around and descend the tree. Calls by the homeowner to various county agencies were met with sympathy and an apology that there was nothing they could do. A trapper was also called and he could perhaps trap the cat, but there would be a substantial charge. The inspector called his coworker Kathy Frisbie, who around mosquito control is referred to as the cat whisperer, looking for advice. Frisbie said she would make some calls. She contacted a friend who volunteers at the Citrus County Animal Services shelter who provided several options and names that might be available. Tree trimmers, trappers and several other suggestions turned up nothing. Frisbie and a few friends went to the location that night and upon seeing the cats predicament, knew someone had to be found that could get the poor cat down. On the way home that night, parked on the side of U.S. 19, was a white bucket truck with a yellow placard on its side New England Handyman Tree Service. Frisbie contacted the owner, Charles Chuck Brown about the cats sad predicament. Brown agreed to help and met Frisbie the following morning at the tree. Its temporary tenant was still there. Brown and Frisbie ascended along the side of the huge tree in the trucks bucket, whereupon Brown plucked the cat from its precarious perch, and Frisbie wrapped a blanket around him and clutched him in her arms for the descent to the ground. No fighting, no nabbing, scratching, biting or otherwise catty reactions to a stressful situation or a stranger. The cat seemed grateful, happy to be out of the tree. Frisbie secured the cat in a carrier and asked Brown what she could pay him. She was met with the response, No charge. Youre not making any money and neither am I. Its my day off, I am an animal lover, and I would probably be home watching TV. My wife said to me go save a cat. Frisbie, on her way to an event at animal shelter, stopped at the office of Dr. Shane Henry to check for a possible microchip, which the cat miraculously had. They are attempting to locate the owner. Bob, as it turns out, is the cats name. Dr. Henry cleaned Bobs ears of mites and said that, other than being a little thin from his six-day stint up a tree, he was in good shape, purrs up a storm and is extremely friendly. A huge thank-you goes out to Charles Chuck Brown for his invaluable help in saving Bob. His generosity in bringing his truck and equipment out to help the cat at no charge was very much appreciated.

PETERSBURG Rookie Jake Odorizzi pitched into the seventh inning and Kevin Kiermaier, Matt Joyce and Ben Zobrist delivered key hits during a six-run outburst that helped the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday. Pitching a day earlier than scheduled because All-Star David Price was ill, Odorizzi (5-8) allowed three runs and six hits over 6 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander walked two and struck out seven to improve to 3-1 over his last five starts. Kiermaier and Joyce had three RBIs apiece and Zobrist finished with two. The 1-2-3 hitters in the Rays lineup also combined to drive in five runs during a six-run sixth inning. Pinch hitter Cole Figueroa drove in the first run of the inning, drawing a basesloaded walk from Drew Hutchison (6-8) to snap a 2-2 tie. The loss was the seventh in nine games for the secondplace Blue Jays, who remained three games behind division-leading Baltimore in the AL East. Despite its recent struggles, Torontos 49 wins are the most the Blue Jays have had before the All-Star break since 2006. A win Today would give them their first road series victory over Tampa Bay since April 2007, as well as 50 wins before the break for the first time since 1992. Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Yunel Escobar tags out Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes at second base Saturday during the fifth inning in St. Petersburg.Associated Press See RAYS/ Page B3 Bayshore blasts Inverness 7-2 Associated PressCLEVELAND LeBron James signed a two-year, $42.1 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers that provides flexibility for the NBAs biggest star with the leagues maximum salary expected to rise in the future. A person familiar with the negotiations said Saturday that James contract includes an option for the four-time league MVP to become a free agent next summer. However, it is strictly a business deal, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented about the agreement. By only signing for two years, James can get another contract with the Cavs before the 2016-17 season when a new television deal is expected to push the maximum contract higher. The max contract for next season is $20.7 million. Until this deal, James had never been the highest paid player on his team in 11 seasons as a pro. James announced he was returning to the Cavaliers on Friday, picking Cleveland over Miami and reversing the decision he made four years ago to sign as a free agent with the Heat.Gasol tweets hes joining Chicago BullsCHICAGO Free-agent center Pau Gasol says he has decided to join the Chicago Bulls. Gasol announced on his verified Twitter account on Saturday that he was looking forward to the new chapter of his career in Chicago. He says the choice wasnt easy and he decided on the Bulls after meditating a lot. It was unclear if Gasol had signed with the Bulls or was a part of a sign-and-trade deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he had played for parts of seven seasons. San Antonio and Oklahoma City also were believed to be in the hunt for the 34-year-old veteran. The 7-foot Gasol averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds in 60 games last season with Los Angeles. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleInverness base runner Caleb Holloway successfully slides into third base in the third inning of Saturdays 9/10 Little League game between Inverness and Bayshore at Bicentennial Park. Holloway went on to score the first run of the game for Inverness. Inverness girls lose two straight LARRYBUGG CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER Injuries continued to hamper the Inverness 11 and 12 Major Softball All Stars Saturday in the Section 7 Little League Tournament at Harly Levins Softball Complex. Inverness lost their second straight game, a 16-2, four inning loss to Pinellas Park, now 2-0. Brianna Kiernan took the pitching loss for the Citrus County girls. They were missing normal starting pitcher Bekkah Adams, out with a fractured wrist. Alanna Sloan was hurt during the game and had to leave the contest. Third baseman starter Lauren Ely was also missing due to a fractured wrist. Inverness scored both runs in the second inning. Zarrie Washington led off by reaching on an error and stealing second. One out later, Molly Bentz doubled to score Washington. Bentz later scored on an error. Washington had a single as Inveness managed just two hits. STEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER One rough inning and one facet of the game faltering is all it took for the Inverness 9/10 All Stars to lose to Bayshore 7-2 Saturday from Bicentennial Park. Bayshorecame out swinging to put up five runs in the first inning, highlighted by a pair of two-run base hits by Anthony Donovan and Jack Lennon. A wild pitch provided the other Bayshore run and Inverness was in a hole it would be unable to climb out of. The opportunity to do so came early however, in the top of the second inning. After a single by Logan Frederick, Inverness would have runners on second and third with none out. ButLennon, Bayshoressecond pitcher of the day, struck out two and induced a groundout to deflate Inverness chances. Everything was pretty good except for that first inning, said Inverness head coach Cody Williamson. I guess they werentready to show up right there, and they get you. Inverness pitching combined to limit Bayshore to two runs on four hits the rest of the way, as well as playing errorfree defense, butwere unable to string anything together offensively. We played pretty tight defense, but we had to swing the bat and we didnt get it done, Williamson said. Inverness alsofailed to score withrunners on second and third in the opening inning. Caleb Holloway drove an RBI double to theright field fence in the third, scoring Jacob Palmeri to make it 5-1. Palmeri finished 1 for 2 with three stolen bases, two walks and two runs. Cason Williamson also singled for Inverness. Donovan (2 for 3, 4 RBI)delivered another two-rundouble in the fifth for a 7-1 lead. Palmeri scored on a wild pitch in the top of the sixth, before Bayshore relieverMatt Sherer registered a strikeout to end the game. Bayshore pitching chalked up nine strikeouts on the day. Palmeri also had a solid performance from the mound, striking out seven with three hits and two walks. See SOFTBALL/ Page B3LeBron signs on for 2 years in Cleveland

Associated PressBALTIMORE Rookie Shane Greene pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning of his second major league start, Derek Jeter had two hits and an RBI and the New YorkYankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Saturday. Greene (2-0) struck out nine and walked two in his third big league appearance. The right-hander didnt give up a hit until the fifth inning and allowed only two runners past second base in 7 1-3 innings. It was Greenes second win in six days with theYankees, the first coming at Cleveland. For most of the season, the 25-year-old put up unspectacular numbers (5-2, 4.61 ERA) for Scranton-Wilkes-Barre of the International League. David Robertson, the third New York reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 23rd save. Brian McCann had three hits for theYankees, who moved within four games of the firstplace Orioles in the AL East. AMERICAN LEAGUE Red Sox 8, Astros 3HOUSTON Rookie Christian Vazquez got his first three major league hits and drove in three runs, while David Ortiz had three RBIs to break open the game in the sixth inning and lead the Boston Red Sox to an 8-3 victory over the Houston Astros.

Houstons Chris Carter homered twice.White Sox 6, Indians 2CLEVELAND Jose Abreu hit his major league-leading 29th homer, a two-run shot that sent the Chicago White Sox over the Cleveland Indians 6-2. Abreu, picked for the AL All-Star team in his rookie season, broke a scoreless tie in the fourth inning with his drive off Zach McAllister (3-5). The homer cleared the fence in right field and landed in the White Sox bullpen for Chicagos first hit. All-Star outfielder Michael Brantley hit a leadoff homer in the eighth for Cleveland. Scott Carroll (4-5) held Cleveland to two hits in five shutout innings before being pulled with a stiff lower back. The rookie right-hander has won two straight starts, in which he hasnt allowed a run over 11 2/3 innings.Tigers 5, Royals 1KANSAS CITY, Mo. Rick Porcello outdueled James Shields and the Detroit Tigers won their fifth in a row, beating the Kansas City Royals 5-1. Porcello (12-5) raised his career record against Kansas City to 8-3 while yielding six hits and one run through seven innings. Alex Avila drove in three runs, putting the Tigers in position to go for a four-game sweep on Sunday in what had been billed as an AL Central showdown. The Royals have lost six of their last eight. They are 0-6 at home against Detroit this year. Shields (9-5) went seven innings and allowed two runs.Angels 5, Rangers 2ARLINGTON, Texas Howie Kendrick celebrated his 31st birthday with three hits, including an RBI single during a four-run sixth inning as the Los Angeles Angels sent the Texas Rangers to their seventh straight loss, 5-2. Kendricks third single tied it at 2 in the sixth. The Angels chased Miles Mikolas (0-2) and pulled away for their ninth win in 10 games. The Rangers have dropped 21 of 24. Jered Weaver (10-6) went seven innings, giving up two runs and four hits. He left his last start because of tightness in his lower back. Joe Smith got his 14th save in 18 chances. Angels left fielder Collin Cowgill left the game with blood pouring from the bridge of his nose after he was struck in the face by a pitch when he squared to bunt in the eighth. The Angels said he got stitches and was taken to a hospital for further evaluation.NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 11, Cubs 6CHICAGO Chris Johnson homered twice and pitcher Mike Minor hit his second career home run, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Chicago Cubs 11-6. Johnson and Justin Upton each drove in four runs for the Braves. Johnson and Minor homered and Upton hit a three-run double as Atlanta scored six times in the fourth inning for a 9-3 lead. Minor (3-5) allowed six runs and 11 hits in six innings. He improved to 6-0 in his career against the Cubs. The Braves won for the second time in seven games. Chris Coghlan hit two doubles and drove in three runs for the Cubs, who have lost seven of nine. Edwin Jackson (5-10) lasted just 3 2/3 innings after giving nine runs, seven hits and three home runs.Mets 5, Marlins 4NEW YORK Chris Young and rookie Eric Campbell delivered big hits off the bench in the late innings to rally the surging New York Mets past the Miami Marlins 5-4. Youngs pinch-hit, two-run homer off Bryan Morris tied it at 4 in the seventh, and Campbell came through with a pinch-hit single in the eighth to put the Mets ahead. Daisuke Matsuzaka struck out 10 in six innings and New York executed a perfect suicide squeeze, improving to 7-2 on a 10-game homestand that leads into the All-Star break. Christian Yelich homered for the Marlins, who have lost four of five. With two outs in the eighth, Travis dArnaud doubled off left-hander Mike Dunn (7-5). Campbell batted for Kirk Nieuwenhuis and poked a soft single into center to give the Mets their first lead.Diamondbacks 2, Giants 0SAN FRANCISCO Aaron Hill homered, doubled and scored twice, Wade Miley pitched seven shutout innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0. David Peralta and Gerardo Parra each added two hits for the Diamondbacks, who won their fourth in six games.

Miley (5-6) allowed four hits and won his second straight start for the first time since early April. He has given up three runs over his past 22 2/3 innings.Cardinals 10, Brewers 2MILWAUKEE Adam Wainwright pitched seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals sent Milwaukee to its seventh straight loss, 10-2 as the Brewers mourned the death of shortstop Jean Seguras young son. Segura left the team and traveled home to the Dominican Republic, a day after his 9-month-old son died. The Brewers observed a moment of silence for Janniel Segura, and the clubhouse was closed before the game. The 24-year-old shortstop learned his son had died after the Brewers 7-6 loss to St. Louis on Friday night. Manager Ron Roenicke said the boy had been ill. The Cardinals pulled into a firstplace tie with Milwaukee in the NL Central. St. Louis trailed by 6 1/2 games on July 1. Frustrated Brewers star Carlos Gomez struck out swinging in the fifth inning and tried three times without success to break the bat over his leg. He slammed his helmet and tore up his batting gloves.INTERLEAGUE Twins 9, Rockies 3DENVER Kevin Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3. Correia (5-11) scattered seven hits and cooled off the power-hitting Rockies, who stranded 10 baserunners and were kept in the yard after slugging eight home runs in their previous two games. He walked one and struck out one in snapping a hard-luck threegame losing streak during which he had received no run support. The Twins were shut out in the last two losses for Correia, who helped the Twins offense with a run-scoring double for his first hit of the season and first RBI in three years.

Sauers had a 33 on the back nine to take control at Oak Tree National heading into the final round on Sunday. He is at 7 under for the tournament. Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer and Scott Dunlap are tied for second at 4 under. Langer, who has dominated the Champions Tour all season, was solid, but had several potential birdies lip out during his even-par 71. Marco Dawson, who shot a 76 on Friday, rebounded with a 69 on Saturday and is tied for fifth with Jeff Sluman and Vijay Singh.Inbee Park has 1-shot lead at Royal BirkdaleSOUTHPORT, England Inbee Park shot a 4-under 68 and took the lead in the Womens British Open after a late penalty against Ahn Sun-Ju. Park was at 4-under 212 at Royal Birkdale, one shot clear of Ahn, Shanshan Feng of China and Suzann Pettersen going into the final round. The South Korean will be trying to become only the seventh player to win four of the LPGA Tours majors. Ahn is still in the hunt, just not in the lead. After what she thought was a 69, Ahn was penalized for building a stance in a pot bunker left of the 18th green. She was assessed a two-shot penalty, turning her par into a double bogey and her score into a 71. It also made the final round wide open.Rose tied for lead after 3 rounds of Scottish OpenABERDEEN, Scotland Justin Rose set up a chance to capture back-to-back titles by shooting a 5-under 66 at the Scottish Open to move into a share of the lead with Marc Warren after three rounds. Rose and Warren (67) are on 10-under-par overall at the warm-up tournament for the British Open, one shot clear of Kristoffer Broberg of Sweden (68). Nearly three weeks after winning the Quicken Loans National at Congressional, Rose has kept up his strong form despite struggling with hayfever and, more recently, sinus problems. Warren, who held a three-shot lead midway through the third round, is looking to avenge a final-round collapse at his home Scottish Open in 2012. Rory McIlroy (68) and Phil Mickelson (70) were unable to mount considerable challenges to the leaders and are seven and eight shots off the lead, respectively.Harman grabs lead in John Deere ClassicSILVIS, Ill. Brian Harman had two eagles in a 6under 65 that gave him a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the John Deere Classic. Harmans solid performance got him to 17-under 196 for the tournament at TPC Deere Run. Three-time winner Steve Stricker is alone in second, one stroke better than Scott Brown heading into the final round. Tim Clark, Jerry Kelly, William McGirt and 2012 champion Zach Johnson are three back at 14-under 199. Clark shot a 64 to move into contention. Pinellas Park pitcher Justice McCranie was the winning pitcher. She allowed two hits, struck out three and walked one. Pinellas Park scored nine runs in the third inning. Inverness will play the last game of the tournament today at 10 a.m. against South Tampa. Pinellas Park will play at noon for the sectional title and a trip to the state tournament in Clearwater. We are 2-0 and looking to go 3-0, said Pinellas Park manager Richie Meadows. With good defense, we should win it all. It was a little slow. We put the bat on the ball and it takes care of itself. The Inverness manager was impressed with the Pinellas County team. They (Pinellas Park) have a great team, said Inverness manager Tim Adams. They are spot on. They are well-coached. Well-practiced. My girls fell short today but I am still proud of them. They have done a good job. We have one more game. We will give them what we got. We are still proud of our girls. Inverness won the District 15 title two weeks ago.9 and 10 Softball Dunnellon 14, Azalea 0Dunnellon pitcher Kaitlyn Knox pitched her team to its second straight victory, a 14-0, four inning victory over Azalea. Knox pitched just two innings, but they were perfect with six strikeouts. She also scored two runs. Alexia Wilson tripled twice and scored once. Jordyn Clark scored three runs for Dunnellon. Dunnellon can win the Section 7 Little League title today with a victory. They play Citrus Park at noon. If they win the sectional, Dunnellon will play in the state tournament in Tallahassee. SOFTBALLContinued from Page B1 The Rays, meanwhile, stopped a four-game losing streak against their division rivals, winning for just the third time in nine tries against Toronto this season. Hutchison beat Tampa Bay 4-2 on April 1 at Tropicana Field and 10-5 in Toronto on May 26, despite not pitching six innings in either outing. He didnt make it through the middle innings against them this time, either, running into trouble when the Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth on a single and two walks. The Blue Jays starter fanned Jose Molina, but watched the go-ahead run cross the plate when Figueroa walked after fouling off three pitches on a full count. RAYSContinued from Page B1

She beat Cindy Carver, a resident of Lake Panasoffkee, who took second place just like in 2013. The 46-year-old had a time of 20:52. Both beat many girls half their ages. Troy Clark, a runner at Florida Gulf Coast University, won the mens race with a time of 16:50. Hot on his tail was Tyler Fisher of Port Charlotte, who finished with a time of 16:52. It was his second straight year of taking runner-up. Stephen Brown of Land O Lakes was third among the men with a time of 17:38. Land O Lakes High School boys cross country coach Kris Keppel finished 100th with a time of 57:33. Clark had a tough time with the race. It was very humid and hard to breathe, said Clark. Its an awesome course. I love to run here. For Wachtel, it was a return to a course she conquered when she was named Jacki Waller and a star runner for New Port Richey River Ridge High School. Now, she is married to Land O Lakes High head football coach Brian Wachtel and they have two children, Mae, 5, and Eli, 2. Wachtel won the state high school 3,200-meter race in 1995 and took second in that event in 1997. She dominated in both track and cross country during her four years of high school. She is now the girls cross country coach at Pasco-Hernando State College and still lives in New Port Richey. She and her husband both ran in the San Diego Half Marathon. She has won the Gasparilla 5K. Winning as a 35year-old impressed this dedicated runner, who is more muscular and lean today than she was in high school. Winning this means more, she said. Ill take it. I am stronger than I was as a teen. Having children does that to you. When she ran in high school, she ran a two-mile course. Now, the high school runners do a 3.1or 5-kilometer run. Former Land O Lakes High star runner Danielle Shimer placed fourth with a 22:53. Recently graduated Crystal River High School runner Brandon Harris was seventh with a time of 18:11. He was the top cross country runner in Citrus County in 2013. Crystal Rivers Braylee Spiddle was seventh overall and was the top middle school girl with a time of 24:06. The Citrus Summer 5K Showdown began as a high school class project for Milton Lyons when he was a cross country runner at Citrus High School. This years race drew about 300 runners, although relatively few were from Citrus County. The weather was good this year, said Lyons, now an executive with a running shoe company in Lakeland. There was no rain. Im proud of what it has become.

Van Persie converted a penalty kick three minutes into the match after Arjen Robben was brought down by Brazil captain Thiago Silva. Blind added to the lead in the 17th with a shot from near the penalty spot after defender David Luiz made a mistake while trying to clear a cross in front of the goal. Georginio Wijnaldum rounded off the win in injury time. With the result, the Netherlands finishes a World Cup unbeaten in regular play for the first time.

Section CSUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW Ten years ago this month we officially became residents of Crystal River. Within the first 60 days we lived in our new home, we were asked by local authorities four separate times to get the heck out of town. For the previous 25 years we had lived in Inverness and enjoyed the comfort of being a good 20 miles east of the Gulf of Mexico. Our timing for coming to the waterfront on Crystal River could not have been worse. The welcoming committee was made up of Jeanne, Charley, Ivan and Frances. In 2004, those four hurricanes beat the tar out of the state of Florida and took particular aim at the west coast of Citrus County. After the fourth evacuation order, we couldnt believe this was the sort of lifestyle that flood zone residents lived. The final straw came when we had our first large-screen television delivered and I was getting ready to watch a ballgame like I was sitting in the dugout. Instead, the sheriffs office called and said it was time to leave the house again because yet another hurricane was coming our way. My wife started packing a bag, but I stood my ground. Im not leaving the TV, I told her. I have to draw the line somewhere. So we pulled in the lawn furniture and hunkered down in the house. When the storm came roaring across the county, our power was knocked out almost immediately. The waters of Crystal River started to rise, and all of a sudden the street in front of our house was about a foot underwater. The river came up and over its banks and it looked like we had rapids making the turn of the house by the garage. The wind was suddenly coming from the east, so our back porch was protected. I made one of my many bad Next time, I will listen to Mother Nature See WINDOW/ Page C3 SEAN COOPERWe named him Sean because that means gift from God, said Harry Cooper with a huge, almost mischievous smile that just keeps getting bigger when he brags about his son. Once diagnosed as never being able to read or be potty-trained, Sean has thrived on his familys support both his family at home and his family at the Key. At home, he is the computer expert, loves traveling with his mom, dad and sister and can cook up a meal to rival any chef. At the Key Training Center, he thrives on the challenges given to him at the Adult Day Training, he acts in plays, he runs races and wins medals at Field Day, he takes on any new task with a devilish grin remarkably similar to his dads and he will stop everything to rock to an Elvis tune. We moved to Citrus County when Sean was 2 because we knew we wanted him at the Key Training Center when he became an adult, Harry said. He has changed our life and all for the better, he explained, and the Key opened that door for us.LUKE RITCHIEAlthough many parents initially may feel reluctant to have their child with special needs live away from home in the care of someone else, Paulette and Tom Ritchie give ample testimony to its value in restoring their familys energy, sense of humor and perspective. And they know that Luke Ritchie finds himself surrounded by love at every turn he takes, whether he is working and learning along with his housemates at Whitten House on the Keys Lecanto campus, cycling on the trail through his neighborhood, or laughing with his family over pizza. His family mom, dad, sister and lots of aunts, uncles, cousins and neighbors will never be able MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileVolunteers assist Key clients across the Suwannee River in 2012. Each year, the Key Training Center joins with community members in a trip from Tallahassee to Lecanto that symbolizes the journey Key clients face each and every day. More than 2,000 men and women have found the doors at the Key Training Center open for them since its inception. The facility has grown from a single classroom with six clients to 27 buildings, 275 employees, a fleet of 50 buses and specially equipped vans, and currently provides education and job-skills training to more than 300 men and women. A JOURNEY OF OPPORTUNITY AND HOPE NEALEBRENNAN Special to the Chroniclechild is born and a family begins its journey one of excitement, expectation and adventure.But when that family learns the child has a developmental disability which will never be cured, which will forever make that child different and which will redefine every hope and dream harnessed by a lifetime of responsibility and uncertainty, that definition of family can fall into a black hole. For decades too recent for many to openly acknowledge, many of these families were told that the child would best be taken care of at an institution a place away from the rest of the family, a place where basic physical needs would be addressed and they would live out their days with food, shelter, necessary medications and not be a burden to the parents and siblings who were not equipped to deal with such overwhelming handicaps. In the 1960s, advocates, innovators, forward-thinking social activists and a lot of caring parents and family began introducing such thoughts as quality of life, special needs, dignity and individual rights. Not only did this new family portrait reveal that those with disabilities have an untapped supply of talents, skills and potential, but that co-existing within a normal family structure was not only a possibility but a gift. The gift, however, came with what many found to be labyrinth of conditions and glitches, all which seem to pit psychological and medical needs against financial and legislative realities, all the while battling misconceptions, biases, erroneous beliefs about those developmental disabilities and a social fear of getting too close to those who do not look or act as normal people and were labeled as retarded. And so the journey continued. Families wanting to do and be the best for their child, but not always knowing how to navigate that journey, often meandering alone and afraid. As the children grew to be adults, the barriers become more visible and harder to escape. In Citrus County, close to 50 years ago, a hand went out that has become a lifeline for families and loved ones as well as a benchmark for services, programs, education, residences and even job placement for men and women with developmental disabilities. The Key Training Center has grown to become a nationally recognized facility, respected and celebrated for its philosophy of working together with families and individuals to bring the greatest opportunities. Together with a supportive community and resourceful funding initiatives, this center continues to bring its testimonies of hope, support and strength to continue on that journey. See KEY/ Page C4

Page C2SUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 Thank you for your supportAfter 33 years of service in the property appraisers office, I was elected on June 20 at the point of qualification without opposition. Thanks to the support of the citizens of Citrus County, I will now complete the remaining two-year term as your elected property appraiser. I deeply appreciate the confidence you have shown in my abilities and qualifications. I am grateful to all those who signed over 1,300 petitions to get my name on the ballot. A special thanks to those who contributed time, treasures and talent to my campaign. I remain committed to fair and equitable valuation of properties, sound fiscal operations, resolution of taxpayer issues through informal conferences and delivery of outstanding, responsive customer service. I look forward to bringing new service initiatives as well as enhancements to what we now provide. I have tremendous gratitude to the people of Citrus County for being able to work, live and enjoy this area and all that it has to offer. I believe elected officials should be advocates for the citizens, and when you are impacted by the system I manage, I should be there to efficiently guide you through it with a servant attitude. Please to not hesitate to contact me if you should need assistance from our office.Les Cook, CFA Citrus County property appraiser As rarely as I celebrate decisions of the Roberts Supreme Court, I certainly agree with its unanimous ruling that protects the privacy rights of cellphone users from government searches without due process. I also agree with last weeks unanimous decision that ends the no-free-speech buffer zones on public streets alongside abortion clinics, which penalized the speaking presence of pro-lifers (The Courts Powerful New Consensus, Neal K. Katyal, The New York Times, June 27). But, as happens almost daily in his news releases and analyses, Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead keeps reminding us of brazen Supreme Court violations of the Constitution during this and past administrations. In a June 23 commentary, this constitutional lawyer performed a needed public service and hopefully awakened much of the media. Did you know that police officers can stop cars based only on anonymous tips? Whitehead continues: In a 5-4 ruling in Navarette v. California (2014), the court declared that police officers can, under the guise of reasonable suspicion, stop cars and question drivers based solely on anonymous tips, no matter how dubious, and whether or not they themselves witnessed any troubling behavior. This ruling came on the heels of a ruling by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in U.S. v. Westhoven that driving too carefully, with a rigid posture, taking a scenic route and having acne are sufficient reasons for a police officer to suspect you of doing something illegal, detain you, search your car and arrest you even if youve done nothing illegal to warrant the stop in the first place (The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State, John Whitehead, rutherford.org, June 23). This is the land of the free and the home of the brave? Whitehead goes on to explain another startling contempt of the Constitution: Police can break into homes without a warrant, even if its the wrong home. In an 8-1 ruling in Kentucky v. King (2011), the Supreme Court placed their trust in the discretion of police officers, rather than in the dictates of the Constitution, when they gave police greater leeway to break into homes or apartments without a warrant. Despite the fact that the police in question ended up pursuing the wrong suspect, invaded the wrong apartment and violated just about every tenet that stands between us and a police state, the court sanctioned the warrantless raid, leaving Americans with little real protection in the face of all manner of abuses by the police. Whitehead then makes this very troubling point: The cases the Supreme Court refuses to hear, allowing lower court judgments to stand, are almost as critical as the ones they rule on. Some of these cases, turned away in recent years alone, have delivered devastating blows to the rights enshrined in the Constitution. Dig this: Legally owning a firearm is enough to justify a no-knock raid by police. Justices refused to hear Quinn v. Texas (2014), the case of a Texas man who was shot by police through his closed bedroom door and whose home was subject to a no-knock, SWAT-team style forceful entry and raid based solely on the suspicion that there were legally owned firearms in his household. Now we come to how the Supreme Court is teaching our public school students on how to define themselves as American citizens: Students can be subjected to random lockdowns and mass searches at school without, I add, any probable cause that a crime has been committed. The court refused to hear Burlison v. Springfield Public Schools (2013), a case involving students at a Missouri public school who were subjected to random lockdowns, mass searches and drug-sniffing dogs by police. In so doing, the court let stand an appeals court ruling that the searches and lockdowns were reasonable in order to maintain the safety and security of students at the school. When the Supreme Court refused to hear Diane Doe v. Renfrow (1981), another Fourth Amendment case involving school searches that Ive written about previously, Justice William Brennan pointed out in his dissent that the polices massive invasion of students privacy rights omitted concentrating on particular individuals who might have been engaged in drug activity at school. Then, in a very extraordinary fury, Brennan exploded: Schools cannot expect their students to learn the lessons of good citizenship when the school authorities themselves disregard the fundamental principles underpinning our constitutional freedoms (my column, Supreme Court Teaches Students Theyre Outside Constitution, Cato.org, Oct. 16, 2013). There are more such cases, but I will leave you with this from John Whitehead: The Supreme Court let stand a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Brooks v. City of Seattle (2012), in which police officers who clearly used excessive force when they repeatedly tasered a pregnant woman during a routine traffic stop were granted immunity from prosecution. The Ninth Circuit actually rationalized its ruling by claiming that the officers couldnt have known beyond a reasonable doubt that their actions tasering a pregnant woman who was not a threat in any way until she was unconscious violated the Fourth Amendment. Doesnt that ruling make you so proud to be an American whose individual liberties are guarded by the Constitution? Its entirely impossible to believe that Obama, before he leaves office, will bestow the Presidential Medal of Freedom on John Whitehead for revealing the Supreme Courts atrocious record on these cases. This former constitutional lecturer at the University of Chicago hasnt said a word about them. Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights. He is a member of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and the Cato Institute, where he is a senior fellow. Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car.E. B.

For more than 20 years, city officials have had the proverbial carrot on a stick dangled in front of them as U.S. 41 appears on the federal todo list and then slips down as other road-widening projects skip over it or money runs short. Its difficult to understand as other county roads with similar or lower traffic counts receive upgrades. While not drawing from the same pot of money, S.R. 44, County Roads 486 and 491 have all been fourlaned since U.S. 41 first appeared on the drawing boards for similar treatment. U.S. 19, which was four-laned during the summer of 1964, will be six lanes before this stretch of U.S. 41 moves to four lanes. Much of it has to do with who yells loudest and who has the deepest pockets. Impact fees from large developers helped C.R. 486 and 491 with their facelifts, but the momand-pop businesses that rim the Inverness stretch of U.S. 41 do not have the money or political influence to be noticed by the politicos. County records show U.S. 41 between Inverness and Hernando has about the same traffic counts as U.S. 19, yet the north-south roadway on the countys west side has seen much more attention and funding. Theres a reason for that. U.S. 19 is part of the Strategic Intermodal System, or SIS. The SIS is a series of state highways that have regional importance. Both U.S. 19 and S.R. 44 are part of the SIS. U.S. 41, despite being well beyond its capacity, is not. Delaying the inevitable will only become more expensive. Those who have influence Citrus Countys state delegates, U.S. representative and members of the newly formed Hernando-Citrus Metropolitan Planning Organization must exercise their political power to improve the state of the road for the sake of the businesses and residents who need it. It is time to make the promises, which have been long and lean, come true. THE ISSUE:U.S. 41 forgotten by transportation authorities.OUR OPINION:Four-laning U.S. 41 must be a higher priority.

If this was a false report, then someone should be held accountable. What happened to all of this?Editors note:Law enforcement called off the search. The pilot was never found.Winners and losersI dont understand why were paying and supporting a private pool for possibly 40 people at a time when our streets are a disaster, were not maintaining and cutting the median strips on our county roads. It seems to me that maintenance of existing county assets is much more important than picking 40 winners for a swimming pool. The majority should rule. We should not be picking winners and losers.Creative quiltersThis is in regards to the quilters. An active Creative Quilters group meets the second Wednesday of the month at St. Annes Episcopal Church on Fort Island Trail at 9:30 a.m. Thats Crystal River. I hope this helps the person looking for quilters. Its a very active group.Fix the roadsRegarding the (July 7) article in Sound Off on Road repairs: In Sugarmill Woods, the homeowners association condemns people for the condition of their property. On West Gray Twig Court, the road is so bad as others are in this area the asphalt is cracking and getting gritty and spreading all over the driveways and lawns. All the cul-desacs, there is a sanitation cover that is covered (with) about 2 inches of grit and been this way for two years plus.

COMMENTARYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 C3 decisions of the day by going out onto the porch to see what kind of damage had been done on the backside of the house. The weather radio said gusts of 109 mph had been recorded up at the power plant site north of Crystal River. At right about that time, the winds turned and started roaring from the west. The eye must have been close. As we huddled in the corner of the back porch watching the power of Mother Nature, the roof of the big, old blue building at Petes Pier started to tear off. Huge chunks of the metal roof were suddenly airborne and started sailing across the river toward our home. If a sheet of metal of struck us in the right place going at that speed it would have cut one of us in half. We crawled on our hands and knees back into the house and got into the protected closet. Suddenly, the largescreen TV didnt seem all that important. I was even willing to sacrifice the TV, the house and the cars if God could just guarantee our safety. (And for you raccoon lovers, the two dogs and cat did get in the closet with us). The storm eventually blew over, but not before tearing up the county. While our house was fine, it took a full week before power was restored and I learned to cook all sorts of defrosting things on the gas grill. We learned to live without television, air conditioning and the fridge for the week and got a real lesson on how spoiled weve all become. The summer of 2004 was 10 years ago, and we have not been evacuated once since then. That stormy season seems like a bad dream presented by the Weather Channel. It was like all the hurricanes of the decade held back to give our family a welcoming gift to life in the flood zone. Citrus County has not had a threatening hurricane since that time. But the lesson stays with us: Mother Nature is in charge and we are simply guests. When she decides to give us another lesson in hurricanes and she will we had better each be ready with our own plan for survival and evacuation. You have my guarantee I wont be sitting on the back porch.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle. Email him at gmulligan @chronicleonline.com. A bucket list? About all I have left to do is kick it Abucket list is a list of things that one has not done but wants to do before dying. It originated from the term to kick the bucket, and its first known usage was in 2006. A short while ago, I read that on his 90th birthday former President George H. W. Bush jumped out of a perfectly good airplane and rode a parachute to the ground. Maybe that was on his very specific list, one which included a date upon which an action was to take place. I suppose thats OK, any guy or gal should be able to write their list any way they choose. Personally, Ive not yet written a bucket list and have no intention of doing so, but if I should change my mind, I think I can assure that such a list would not include skydiving at any age, and certainly not at 90. It might include making it to my 90th birthday and blowing out all of the candles, but there would be nothing about jumping out of a plane at any age. As far as I know, Cheryl doesnt have an official bucket list, either. She and I have amazingly similar tastes, and most of the things we do we enjoy doing together. We both love to travel, and if we had a list, it would probably include continuing to travel as much as is feasible and, at some point,making it to the seventh continent. Weve been to six of em, and I think setting foot on Antarctica would be on our mutual mental bucket list. Back to my sweetheart. As indicated, Ive seen no list nor have I heard her mention one, but she has indicated a few things she might want to do before kicking time comes, things Id rather avoid. Riding in a helicopter over an active volcano. Zip-lining. Going up in a hot-air balloon. Its too late on the first one, she did that in 2003 and I sucked it up and went with her for a look down into the molten heart of Kilauea. Zip-lining? Have you ever really looked at the engineering for those things? Id just as soon try flying off the roof of the house in a glider made from newspapers and sticks one more time. Going up in a hot air balloon? Two problems: It might catch on fire or the heat source could go out. Stop laughing. I know what youre thinking. But there is little I could do about a flameout, and I doubt that Id be able to talk enough to fill the canopy with hot air! Even so, as always, if Cheryl wants to do those things badly enough, Ill try to see to it that she gets the opportunities, and if she takes such chances, Ill probably take them with her. Antarctica? Thats probably the most hazardous potential activity of them all. Nowadays, some of the large cruise ships can get you close, but my informal research indicates that to actually make footfall onto the white continent is very risky. Will we ever try? Maybe. And perhaps that might be how I will complete the only other item remaining on my unofficial bucket list: kicking it.Fred Brannen, an Inverness resident, has been a Chronicle columnist since 1988 and is the author of the novel At the Bottom of Biscayne Bay.

Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE WINDOWContinued from Page C1 How do you know its us?This is to the person who feels that the Citrus County residents dont know what trash cans are because of all the trash on the side of the roads. I would venture to bet that these are not left by citizens or residents of Citrus County but by people who come through Citrus County, visit Citrus County and just throw their trash out the window. So I dont think I would be so quick to accuse the people and the residents of Citrus County. Were not DunnellonIm calling again to complain again about the sheriffs department that does not recognize Citrus Springs in the paper. They call this Dunnellon. Citrus Springs is not Dunnellon. Dunnellon is in Marion County. And how are we supposed to know what the crime is around here if they keep showing Dunnellon? The only reason I know is because I know the streets. Its getting kind of political here. Thats why most of the people are moving out of this county, because you cant get nothing done in it. Boy, I wish Dawsy would listen up and do something about it. At least show Citrus Springs instead of Dunnellon for the crime reports in the paper, break-ins and so forth.Heat hard on homelessI would like to add to (the July 9) Sound Off about Mosquito Control, that it is the one county organization that has triedto help the homeless. When I called about a problem, someone went to that campsite, talked to the people and did some extra spraying. We have compassion for homeless in the winter, but they tell me that a few cold nights are nothing compared to the 24/7 misery of summer. Now is the time they need help, particularly showering facilities.Daily dose of senseUse your turn signals. And it would be a good idea to stop at stop signs and red lights and also adhere to the speed limits.Thanks, JeffIm calling from Gainesville. My wallet was stolen, and Jeff, who I dont know from the man in the moon, Jeff at J&J Auto Sales found my fishing license and mailed it to me. So thank you for your honesty and thank you for being a Good Samaritan. I really appreciate it. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 If you think your vote doesnt count, think again.

League of Women VotersGUEST COLUMN Questions about voting? Here are your answers Letters toTHE EDITOR The peoples rebellion in CubaWith all due respect for E. D. Garcias rebuttal to Mary Gregorys letter to the editor on Cubas conditions before and after the revolution, I would like to comment that opinions about Cuba depend on which socioeconomic group you came from, and your education on the facts of the time period. It is common knowledge, and doesnt take much research to learn that before the revolution, Cuba was a playground for the wealthy (many of them American tourists) but an economic disaster for workers and small farmers. In 1954, the average per capita income in Cuba was $312, or $6 per week. Even the poorest state in the USA at that time, Mississippi, averaged a per capita income of $829. Fiftyfour percent of Cubas rural population had no toilets; malaria and TB were widespread. Before the revolution, Cuba had a 25 percent illiteracy rate, and fewer children went to school during Batistas rule than in the 1920s, yet Havana, before the revolution had more Cadillacs than any other city in the world. The unemployment rate during Batistas rule was a stubborn 25 percent. Health care in pre-revolution Cuba was extremely poor, with relatively few having access. Poor-quality medical care was available at first-aid stations set up in a limited number of cities, and also in hospital emergency rooms. These facilities were poorly equipped, and did not fulfill the demands of the majority who were poor. A higher quality of care was available to the wealthy through private practice, and mainly in cities. The infant mortality rate was 60 per 1,000 live births, and Cubans experienced a high mortality rate for curable/preventable diseases. Since the revolution, the Cuban government has concentrated on building its number of primarycare doctors, and the number of doctors per Cuban citizens is one doctor per every 157 people. They have a lower infant mortality rate than the United States, and have wiped out diseases like tuberculosis and polio. Before the revolution, farmland was concentrated in a few hands in huge privately held farms; 8 percent of the total number of farm holders controlled 71 percent of the land, set the prices depending on the United States corporate demands, while small farmers held 3.3 percent of the land. The primary agricultural product, sugar, was shipped to the United States under fixed prices and quotas, making it difficult for farmers to earn a living. If Cuban residents survived the extremes of the economy, they were concerned for their lives in the s, since Batista and his soldiers murdered at least 20,000 people who dared to go against his iron rule. Of course, there were those who did well the American Mafia was allowed to flourish, professionals and financiers did well at the expense of the workers and small farmers. When the divide in any country between the wealthy and the poor becomes so wide, historically, there is always the risk of revolution. If conditions in Cuba had been equitable, there would have been no need to rebel. The revolution was a peoples rebellion, built up over many years in response to economic and military repression. To deny this fact goes against historical facts. Mary Gregorys knowledge of Cuba didnt come from one week she spent on the island; she graduated from George Washington University with a minor in Latin American studies.

to change the fact that Luke has a disability. But each days experience has made their family better as they learn from each other, and especially from Luke. We witness miracles we might have been too busy to notice, explained Paulette. But without the Key? We cant even think about our life without the Key as part of it, Tom said. The journey has been together, and thats the way this family celebrates.ANTHONY CASHAnthony Cashs mother, father and two brothers have always understood that their familys journey may be different from others. But together they learned that the fears which often immobilize families can be readily replaced by an unconditional love. I count my blessings every day, said mother Jane. And the Key Center is definitely one of them. When Rogers ministerial commitments meant a move to Tampa, the family faced a decision that for others might have been devastating. In Tampa, the family could find no facilities that offered the programs, services and individual attention that Anthony had been receiving at the Key, and Jane would have had difficulty finding a job that would also allow her to take care of Anthony. But Anthony moved into a Key Center residence and thrived on his new independence, so much so that when the family was able to move back to Citrus County in 2010 and offered to have him move back home, Anthony proudly announced that he now lived at the Key Training Center. Just like his brothers, Anthony has his own life, but the family is as strong as ever, the parents say. They go to church together, share special holidays and activities, plan family events and seem to always have something to smile about. It is good that he is so happy, said his mother. Very good. More than 2,000 men and women have found the doors open for them at the Key Training Center since its inception. The facility has grown from a single classroom with six clients to 27 buildings, 275 employees, a fleet of 50 buses and specially equipped vans, and currently provides education and job-skills training to more than 300 men and women working, living and laughing in Citrus County. The journey may be different from that of other children, but this does not make a child with developmental disabilities less valuable, less human, less important or in less need of love and parenting. When you are able to have an organization such as the Key Training Center as an integral part of the familys foundation, the battles are less daunting, the unknowns less intimidating and the disappointments less disheartening. When a caring community adds its support and its constant encouragement, the journey crosses into an experience where each traveler is given a glimpse of courage, strength, determination, loyalty and joy that reaches the heart in ways others might not ever imagine.Neale Brennan is director of the Key Training Center Foundation.C4SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLECOMMENTARY Thursday, August 14, 2014 CITRUS COUNTY AUDITORIUM DOORS OPEN: 6PM FORUM STARTS AT 7PM Meet the local candidates and hear their positions.

Section DSUNDAY, JULY 13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY For Social Security, need the primary factor DEAR BRUCE: Next year I will be eligible to begin collecting Social Security. My husband currently collects his benefits, and my disabled daughter has also been collecting. I am told if I wait a few years to collect my Social Security benefits, I will qualify to receive my husbands Social Security benefits (upon his demise) in lieu of mine, which is the smaller of the two. However, since my adult daughter currently receives some benefits off my husbands Social Security, will I still be eligible to receive his benefits in lieu of mine? Jen DEAR JEN: I dont think your question is as simple as you indicate. You can start to collect immediately when you reach age 62, but whether you do depends upon a number of variables, not the least of which is your need for the money. If you dont necessarily need the money, the longer you hold off (up until age 70), the more money you will receive when you finally start to collect. That is a consideration that you must take into account. The fact that your daughter is receiving benefits from your husbands account has no bearing on your ability to collect. By all means you should visit a Social Security office. Find out exactly what effect it would have if you do not collect immediately. Then you can make the decision about when to start collecting. DEAR BRUCE: I am 64 years old and have very little income. I rented out one of the bedrooms in my condo. I rented it to a male who paid me a $150 deposit and $425 for the first months rent. The following month he paid me $425 toward the next month. That is all he has paid. He now owes me $850 for two more months. Can you advise me on how to get rid of him? R.B. DEAR R.B.: You didnt indicate what state you are living in, and that will impact very materially what your next step will be. In some states, you can get rid of him in a hurry and in others it becomes very difficult. Seek advice from your local authorities as to what previsions are in place for having someone removed for lack of payment. It is very likely that this will require the services of an attorney. The fact that your renter owes you $850 and has made no effort to pay you does not sit well with your situation. I would tell him that unless you have the money in five days, you will seek the advice of an attorney on how to collect the money and get rid of him. I know this isnt the advice you wanted, but unfortunately, thats the way it has to be. DEAR BRUCE: Can you explain to me what a 529 plan is and how it works? I want to make sure my daughter has enough money to attend college See MONEY/ Page D2 Associated PressA Chinese-made vehicle passes in front of a mural of revolutionary hero Ernesto Che Guevara on Monday in Havana, Cuba. A new law took effect in January letting Cubans buy cars from the government freely for the first time in decades, but the euphoria that greeted the law turned to anger when the exhorbitant prices were posted. Associated PressHAVANA Its not your typical car lot. Just steps from the Florida Straits, dozens of vehicles sit covered in grime and baking in the Caribbean sun. An elderly security guard slumps in a sleepy waiting area, and customers are nowhere to be seen. A price list hanging on the green chain-link fence hints at why: $85,000 for a 6-year-old Peugeot compact; $46,000 for a tiny 2008 Citroen C3 hatchback that would cost less than a third of that in Europe. Elsewhere, a larger, new Peugeot 508 lists for $262,000, five times its price in Britain and more than a millennium worth of paychecks in Cuba, where wages average about $20 a month. The euphoria that greeted a January reform that lets Cubans buy vehicles from the government without a special permit for the first time in decades turned to anger when the prices were posted. When authorities announced recently that just 50 cars had rolled off the lots of staterun dealerships in the first half-year, bringing in $1.3 million in sales, it was tempting to call the policy a failure. But analysts say it seems the measure was designed to work that way. At those prices, they obviously didnt want to sell many cars, said Philip Peters, president of the Virginia-based Cuba Research Center. And theyre not. Peters suggested officials simply dont see it as a priority and would rather spend what little hard currency the country has on things like food and industrial inputs. I think theres only one explanation ... the government does not want to use its foreign exchange reserves to import cars for a retail market, he said. So therefore the only way that its worth it to them, to import a car for $20,000 and then sell it retail, is to soak up $50,000 worth of liquidity. Some islanders initially hoped authorities would adjust prices downward when they got a sense of what the market would bear. That happened when cellphones first appeared in Cuba more than a decade ago. However, a recent tour of several dealerships in Havana found the same 400 percent markups as before. Not a single potential client was in sight. Employees refused to speak to reporters, though one confirmed that prices have not budged. There are no publicly available statistics on how many vehicles circulate in Cuba, but visitors to Havana marvel at how empty the streets are for a city of about 2 million people. Jorge Pinon, a Latin America energy expert at the University of Texas, said Cubas reluctance to sell cars isnt out of fear of insufficient fuel. The country gets tens of thousands of barrels of oil a day on preferential terms from Venezuela. But Pinon noted that a huge infusion of vehicles would test the creaky transportation infrastructure of Cuba, where potholes can go unfilled for years and traffic lights are scarce. In a separate measure in 2011, Cuba legalized private, person-to-person sales of used cars. But those prices started out high and have now shot even higher since Januarys reform. The only Cuban consumers who can afford it are probably musicians that have got some terrific royalty earnings on their latest record, or people who cashed out fabulously when they sold their family home, and I cant think of anybody else, Peters said. Its a very, very small sliver of the public that could think of affording such prices, and, as we see, an even smaller sliver that actually decides to do it. For years, the clearest path to an automobile in Cuba was to get a permit to buy one by completing an overseas mission for the government. A typical returnee might have cobbled together around $5,000, enough to buy a used car or a cheap Russian or Chinese model under the old pricing schedule. Rodolfo Cids quest to obtain a car began six years ago when the 55year-old Construction Ministry engineer agreed to work on a mission in Venezuela. He got a $600 cut of the $3,000 a month that Caracas paid Havana for his services. When Cid returned after three years, he got the letter authorizing him to buy a car and his name went on a waiting list. His plan was to augment his familys meager income by moonlighting as a taxi driver. Two years passed, and in 2013, he left his job at the ministry. But late last year, word emerged that all Cubans would be able to buy beginningin January, putting everyone in the same boat. The permit Cid toiled three years for was suddenly worthless. When the new prices were posted, even the used cars were several times Cids savings. They betrayed the trust that people may have in the institutions, even supporters who did what was asked of them, he said. That amount of money is absurd, Cid added. I cant afford even the smallest one. Wheels fall off Cubans automotive hopes Under economic reforms, cars more available but less affordable Associated PressMILTON, Ga. Two months before police say a high-priced prostitute calmly left a Google executive dying from a heroin overdose on his yacht, the woman panicked on the phone with a 911 dispatcher as her boyfriend lay on the floor of their home in the throes of a fatal overdose. Police said Thursday they are re-examining the death of Dean Riopelle, 53, the owner of a popular Atlanta music venue. Riopelle had been dating Alix Tichelman, 26, who is now charged with manslaughter in the November death of Google executive Forrest Hayes. She was never charged in Riopelles death. Both subjects in these cases died of heroin overdoses, so theres just several factors we want to look at to make sure that we didnt miss anything, Milton police Capt. Shawn McCarty said. It is not clear how long Tichelman may have been involved in prostitution, though police in California say she had many clients in the wealthy Silicon Valley. Police there also said that, after Hayes death, she had done online searches for how to defend herself legally after administering a lethal dose of heroin. Numerous social media postings, photos and other articles online suggest she was pursuing a career as a fetish model and a life with Riopelle one photo posted on her Facebook page shows her displaying a diamond promise ring given to her by Riopelle. Riopelle and Tichelman had been dating for about two and a half years and lived together, said Riopelles sister, Dee Riopelle. In a 2012 interview with a fetish magazine, fIXE, under the pseudonym AK Kennedy, Tichelman describes herself as a model, writer and makeup artist. One post on her Facebook page, titled simply heroin, is a poem that opens with the line: this private downward spiral-this suffocating blackhole. She also said she was interested in bondage, dominance, sadism and masochism, or BDSM. She said she and Riopelle would go to clubs, with her wearing a collar and leash. Photos that accompany her interview show her in sexually suggestive poses wearing a variety of skimpy outfits, including a studded leather jacket with thigh-high fishnet stockings. Riopelle was the lead singer of a rock n roll band called the Impotent Sea Snakes, known for its wild stage shows and sexually explicit lyrics. Online videos show the band performing at a massive music festival in Germany, with members dressed in drag. Riopelle, under the moniker is wearing a long, pink wig, a leopard-print jacket, platform boots and tight pants. Back in Georgia, Riopelle also was known for owning the Masquerade, a popular Atlanta music venue that is a popular destination for rock, punk and metal acts. Housed in a former mill, the venue is composed of three levels: heaven upstairs; purgatory on Associated PressThe house where bar owner Dean Riopelle overdosed Sept. 17, 2013, while at home with his girlfriend, Alix Tichelman, stands Thursday in Milton, Ga.

when that time comes. Reader DEAR READER: The 529 is a savings plan with tax incentives operated by your state. There are good ones and bad ones. As far as making certain your daughter has enough money to attend college, the 529 may very well be part of her future, but its going to take some research on your part to learn what the 529 plan offers, how much you can expect to receive and so forth. The information is out there, and its worth putting the effort into this research. You do not have to use only the plan your state offers. You can and should investigate other plans. DEAR BRUCE: I recently got married for the first and last time. We currently live in an apartment. It seems now its too small. We are thinking about purchasing our first home. Neither one of us have ever owned a home. My question is, do we qualify for first-time home buyers status? And if so, where do we sign up for it? Fred DEAR FRED: Congratulations! The fact that you never owned a home doesnt mean a thing. As far as qualifications are concerned, the major factors are how much money you owe, how much money you have to put down, and how much you are earning. These may seem like huge mountains to climb, but in fact, they really are not. Make an appointment at your local bank and speak to a loan officer. Be sure you have all of your facts at your disposal: income, debts, savings, etc. All these variables can and should be considered. Take your time and get all the facts before purchasing. This is a very important step and should not be rushed.Send questions to bruce@ brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered.

Just to the right of Riopelles home stand large animal enclosures, which include a barrel strung up by rope and fencing extending to the top. Riopelle went to the University of Florida and got a degree in construction engineering. But when he was told by a boss to cut his hair and wear a bigger tie, he decided engineeringwasnt for him, his sister said. He opened his first bar, also called the Masquerade, in the historic Ybor City neighborhood of Tampa, Florida, his sister said. About 25 years ago, he moved to Atlanta and opened the Masquerade there. Over the years he also opened several sports bars and a fetish bar, his sister said. He was very, very wise when it came to business sense, Dee Riopelle said. Everything Dean touched turned to gold. In September, however, his and Tichelmans lives took a dark turn. On Sept. 6, a drunken Tichelman called police, saying Riopelle threw her to the ground, according to a police report. Riopelle told officers that she had taken pills and drank alcohol, and had been stage diving and exposing her breasts that night at the Masquerade. He said he took her home because he did not approve. Riopelle also told officers that she bit him on the finger and threatened to hit herself and tell police Riopelle had beaten her. A neighbor confirmed hearing Tichelman say that. She was charged with battery and arrested; Riopelle was not. Less than two weeks later, a panicked Tichelman called 911, saying her boyfriend had overdosed on something and wouldnt respond. She told a dispatcher that his eyes were open but that he was unconscious, describing his breathing as on and off. In the 911 tapes released Thursday, she can be heard saying, Hello, Dean? Dean, are you awake? Tichelman tried for five minutes to revive him before calling 911, according to a police report. She said she had been in the shower when she heard a crash and came out to find Riopelle unconscious. Tichelman said she did not know how much drugs Riopelle had taken, but that he had been on a bender the last few days, according to the police report. Riopelle died at a hospital a week later. An autopsy report listed his death as an accidental overdose of heroin, oxycodone and alcohol. Tichelman had told the dispatcher that he had been taking painkillers and drinking. Police say surveillance video from the Google executives yacht shows Tichelmans next deadly encounter with heroin in California, on Nov. 23. Santa Cruz Deputy Police Chief Steve Clark gives the following account from the video: Tichelman prepares the heroin to a liquid and injects it into Hayes arm. Shortly after, Hayes clutches his chest, near his heart. Tichelman tries to prop him up, but he then loses consciousness. Tichelman then starts picking up her belongings, including the needle, and cleans up a counter while stepping over Hayes several times. During that time, Tichelman calmly drinks a glass of wine and surveys the scene. Tichelman then goes outside the cabin of the boat on the dock, looks back inside, then pulls down a window blind, closes a door and leaves. Never does she call 911 or call out to others in nearby boats for help. She never tries to administer any aid to him, Clark said. She is more concerned about getting herself out and concealing evidence than helping Mr. Hayes. Clark said that investigators learned that Tichelman later did online searches on how to defend herself after giving a lethal dose of heroin. Investigators also learned that Tichelman planned to leave California late last month, possibly for Georgia, and maybe even the country, Clark said.D2SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BUSINESS For More Information Call 352-563-6363 Citrus County Auditorium 3610 S Florida Ave, Inverness, FL 000IOSYwww.chronicleonline.com/healthylivingshow Audibel Hearing Aid Center Meridien Research Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute Solar Lights and More Citrus County Jazzercise Tri-County Hearing HPH Hospice Global Natural Weight Associated PressAlix Tichelman, left, of Folsom, Calif., confers with public defender Diane August on Wednesday during her arraignment in Santa Cruz Superior Court in Santa Cruz, Calif. DEATHContinued from Page D1 MONEYContinued from Page D1 Man posed as airline worker to get free travel Associated PressDALLAS Federal officials say that a Georgia man posed as an airline employee to score cheap travel and resold the tickets for thousands of dollars. The U.S. Attorneys Office in Los Angeles said that 37-year-old Gilbert Myers Jr. of Atlanta remained in custody Friday on $75,000 bond after pleading not guilty to mail-fraud charges. Officials said Myers was arrested earlier this week at a hotel in Beverly Hills, California, after agreeing to meet a ticket buyer who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent. JetBlue Airways said that it uncovered the scheme and notified law enforcement. Myers was arraigned Thursday in federal district court. He was ordered to stay in the Los Angeles area if he posts bail and told not to book air travel. A call to Myers lawyer, a public defender in Los Angeles, was not immediately returned. Airlines routinely provide free travel for their own employees and heavily discounted fares to those of other airlines if there are empty seats. Such passengers are called non-rev for non-revenue, and they can use the stand-by tickets even for personal travel. The indictment listed about a dozen times in 2012 and 2013 when Myers called an airline posing as an employee from another airline and obtained a ticket for nonrev travel. The ticket would be in the name of someone to whom Myers resold the travel, typically charging $2,000 for a year of flights, according to the indictment. In nearly all of the examples listed in the indictment, Myers made reservations on JetBlue Airways. Investigators believe that Myers fraudulently booked hundreds of flights and used other airlines, too. Some airline industry employees were baffled how anyone could scam the non-rev system by calling airline reservations centers. Many airlines use an electronic service that requires a username, password, and the users airline. Myers allegedly told his customers how to dress and what to say if somebody asked where they worked. If convicted, Myers could face up to 20 years in prison for each of four counts in the indictment.

The South Korean display panel maker said Friday the flexible display has a resolution of 1200 pixels by 810 pixels and maintains its function when it is rolled up. While that resolution would fall within the range of high-definition, images on the display would not look as sharp as the latest flat displays that boast ultra-high definition. LG touted its technology as a significant advance, saying the cylinders diameter would be just 6 centimeters (2.4 inches). It means LG Display could produce TVs that are larger than 50 inches diagonally and can be rolled up. It is based on OLED technology, an advanced display that can show images in richer colors. South Korean display makers are striving to gain an edge in flexible display technology as they see it as a way to set their products apart from their rivals in China, Taiwan and Japan. They also hope that the novel form would give consumers a reason to buy a new gadget. Last year, Samsung Electronics Co. and LG Electronics Inc. each released a smartphone with a curved display to show off their technological prowess. But it is unclear how the nascent technology would make handsets or televisions more useful. LG said its technology would make large TVs portable and it is up to the TV makers how they expand the use of the technology. The South Korean company also unveiled a semi-opaque display. Though it is not as transparent as glass, thats the direction that the company is heading. LG named it the transparent display saying its transparency has improved from existing technology. In the picture provided by LG, it is possible to see hands through the display. LG Display spokesman said it is possible to view images on the transparent display from the front and from the back. By 2017, LG aims to develop a flexible and transparent display that measures more than 60 inches diagonally, Kang In-byung, head of LG Displays R&D Center, said in a statement. Associated PressAn LG employee demonstrates an 18-inch flexible display on Wednesday in Seoul, South Korea. The South Korean display panel maker said Friday it has developed the 18-inch flexible display that can be rolled into the shape of a thin cylinder, a step closer to making a large-size display for flexible TVs. LG Display unveils 18-inch flexible display Associated PressSAN DIEGO U.S. authorities have charged a Chinese businessman with hacking into the computer systems of U.S. companies with large defense contracts, including Boeing, and stealing data on military projects. U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Marc Raimondi said Friday the case raises concern and the federal government will continue using all tools to strengthen cybersecurity. According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Los Angeles that was unsealed Thursday, Su Bin worked with two unnamed Chinese hackers to get the data on military projects from U.S. companies. Su then attempted to sell the information to state-owned Chinese firms, according to the complaint. The complaint says the activity occurred between 2009 and 2013. Su was arrested in Canada on June 28. He has a bail hearing July 18. Chinese man accused of hacking defense contractors

Dear R.S.: Well, there is a first time for everything. I am glad you wrote. I suspect you used the planter in your youth. Dear John: I have a couple of boxes of books that belonged to my dad and his older brother back when they were 8 to 12 years old. They are 78 and 80 now. The books are a miscellaneous collection of fiction, Terry and the Pirates vs. The Dragon Lady for example. They are cheap hardbounds. I was just wondering if they might be worth anything or how I could find out. I hate to just toss them. T.L., InternetDear T.L.: There is some interest in the books you have. I suggest you contact the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers. The website is www.floridabooksellers.com. Good luck. Dear John: I have the platter in the attached picture. My great aunt brought it over from England early in the last century. It has always been used for Thanksgiving turkey as long as I can remember. It is 13 inches wide and 16 1/2 inches long. It has several very definite marks on the underside. In a circle within a circle it says C&W; inside the inner circle is a figure of a kneeling man on a block with on it, and underneath the circle it says Late Mayer. There is also a diamond-shaped mark separated into sections, I have sent a picture, since it is quite complicated. I am not interested in selling it, but would like to know when and where it was made. I always enjoy reading your articles. Thank you for any information you can give me. R.R., InternetDear R.R.: You have a very attractive platter. The condition appears to be excellent, a testimonial to the care it has had over a century of use. The platter was made in England. Your photographs are good and the backstamp is quite visible. The diamond shape mark is a design registration mark. The letters Rd in the center stand for registration design; the Roman numeral at the top indicates ceramics: the letter K is the date letter for 1883; the letter G is the month February; and the number 20 is the day of the month. I was not able to find a listing for the makers mark. The pattern is Japan. Potential dollar value is $100 to $200.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

The condition appears to be excellent, a testimonial to the care it has had over a century of use. This species, which has been documented in Collier County but not Lee County, is thought to compete for food with juvenile snook and has been reported to reduce populations of mosquitofish, which help control area mosquitoes by eating mosquito larvae. African jewelfish were first documented in Hialeah in the 1960s, probably the result of aquarium releases; the species was first reported in Collier County in 2002 and Lee County in 2003. From October 2006 to February 2011, Ceilley was principle investigator for a study of freshwater fish communities in man-made and natural waterways across Babcock Ranch in Charlotte and Lee counties. Ceilleys team collected 9,059 fish from 26 species and found that the two dominant species were native mosquitofish and African jewelfish; a single 12-inch-by-6-inchby-6-inch trap would sometimes catch 150 African jewelfish. The study showed that African jewelfish not only ate native fish, but they also bit off the tails of natives, causing fungal infections that led to death. One positive discovery from the study is that African jewelfish are very cold-sensitive and suffered mass dieoffs during major cold events in 2009 and 2010. Unfortunately, many survived in the slightly warmer water of canals, and the population quickly recovered. Theyre a bad actor, Ceilley said. Theyre the lionfish of the freshwater ecosystem. They make good aquarium fish. Thats where they belong. We sure wish none of them was here, said Kelly Gestring, director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Non-Native Fishes Laboratory. Now its up to us to try to develop ways to cope with these guys. Theres no way we can get rid of them, so its important to stress prevention: Dont release them into the environment. Once theyre out there, theres not a lot we can do. EXOTICContinued from Page E11 2421 N. Lecanto Hwy., Beverly Hills 527-7842 8375 S.

Aconcerned citizen rushed into the Dunnellon Public Library one Friday in mid-June to report there was a little old lady pulling up all the lovely Boston Ferns from the front entry flower beds. The staff told her this Boston fern was an invasive alien plant and would be replaced by a Florida native species after the infestation was completely removed. The lady then asked the gardener, a volunteer Friend of the Dunnellon Public Library, how to identify the exotic pest plant. A thorough information pamphlet, SS-AGR-22, titled Natural Area Weeds: Distinguishing Native and Non-Native Boston Ferns and Sword Ferns, by Ken Langeland, professor at University of Florida, is available online at http://edis. ifas.ufl.edu. On June 6, Keith Morin at the Department of Environmental Protection in Crystal River Buffer State Park provided the Friends of Dunnellon Public Library with printed copies of 10 circulars so the friends and public could be informed. Help Protect Floridas Natural Areas from Non-Native Invasive Plants, circular 1204, also by Langeland, explains the basics. As there are similar native ferns, it is important to correctly identify problem plants. Tuberous Sword, Nephrolepis cordifolia,was first discovered naturalized in Sumter County in 1933. It was then considered desirable. By 1938, it was under cultivation in Floral City. Today it has invaded natural areas from South Florida north to Georgia in hammocks, pinelands, flatwoods and abandoned lots next to cultivated gardens. Many homeowners are still unaware how damaging this alien plant can be. Asian Sword Fern, N. multiflora,was found to be driving out all other plants on Sanibel Island, Lee County in 1954. By 1965 it had invaded Boca Chica in Monroe County. Since the 1990s, this fern has been listed by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, FLEPPC, as a Category 2 invasive. In 1999 it was upgraded to Category 1, as it actively alters native plant communities by displacing native species and the wildlife associated with those communities. A complete list is available online. The tuberous sword fern leaflets, called pinnae, often overlap the central stem, called a rachis. Its roots have brown tubers, about three-quarters of an inch in diameter, growing along them. Dig up the roots, as pulling generally leaves the tubers underground to re-sprout. Beneath desirable landscape plants, small re-emerging fronds can be killed with a diluted 1.5 to 2 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Apply carefully on a windless day, as glyphosate will kill desirable vegetation, too, if it gets on their leaves and translocates to the roots. Glyphosate strongly combines with soil particles, where it breaks down chemically within weeks. It has not been found to leach through soil into the aquifer, nor does it cause cancer in lab animals. Always follow the directions on the label. More is not better. The beds and surrounding parklands at Dunnellon Library will need constant monitoring to detect new alien invasive plants that drift in. Volunteers are needed to remove invasive plants at state, county and municipal parks, and libraries, churches, schools, trails and greenbelts. Sugarmill Woods has a serious problem with alien Skunk Vine. Rainbow Springs State Park has an ongoing struggle to remove Asian and Tuberous Sword Ferns. Read and learn to identify exotic invasives. Prevent aliens by using native plants in the garden. Remove invasive plants from your property.

TONYCARTONThe (Freeport) Journal-StandardWINSLOW, Ill. Oriana Kruszewski came to this country with her husband, Jack, from Hong Kong 43 years ago wanting to own a piece of land. She says it didnt have to be a lot of land or even the best quality ground. They were not strangers to hard work and they wanted to produce good wholesome food. Eventually they purchased 40 acres near Winslow and launched their dream Orianas Oriental Orchard. When I came here I missed certain things like the Asian pear, said Kruszewski. When I buy one here they look beautiful; they come with a jacket, but are very expensive. I wished I could grow them and thats how I got started. She calls herself a solo farmer because she works about six acres pretty much by herself. Jack still helps but works full time off the farm, and they are both getting older. All my trees I make myself, she said. I look around and when someone tells me they have a pear thats very good I taste it. If I like it I graft it on my own tree, and in a couple years I taste the pear again. If I still like it, I keep it. Grafting is a technique by which a section of a stem with leaf buds is inserted into the stock of a tree. It is used to reproduce an original cultivar, repair injured fruit trees or for topworking an established tree to one or more different cultivars. Nurseries often use a budding method to produce fruit trees. You got to love this or you wouldnt do it, Kruszewski said. In my third year I lost about 20 percent of my trees to the cold weather. I decided maybe everybody was right and I could not grow Asian pears in this part of the world, so I walked away from my trees. But later, I thought I would try again. She went back to work. Upon closer inspection, Kruszewski realized most of her root stock was still viable, so she started bud grafting them with hundreds of scions.

Yet mortgage rates now average 4.2 percent. That is still low by historical standards but up about three-quarters of a point from a year and a half ago. And should mortgage rates rise later this year and next, as many economists expect, even more homeowners will be affected. As a result, many homeowners with low rates are staying put. Others are moving and buying new homes, but keeping their old ones and renting them. Both choices mean that fewer homes are listed for sale, which drives up prices. Higher prices and limited selection have put the brakes on a housing recovery that began in 2012. And slower home sales, in turn, drag down economic growth. Fewer sales mean lower commissions for real estate agents. Sales of furniture, appliances and garden supplies also take a hit. Mark Fleming, chief economist at CoreLogic, estimates that as many as 3.6 million homeowners are unlikely to sell this year because they would have to give up a lower rate. They got the deal of the century, says Glenn Kelman, CEO of real estate brokerage Redfin. I dont think in 100 years anyone will be lending money at 3.5 percent. How do you walk away from a deal like that? Youd think Ryan Carson, an attorney in Seattle, would be ready to sell. He and his wife have one young child and they are expecting twins. They are going to hire a live-in nanny, which means there will be five people living in their four-bedroom house. I could probably use the extra space, honestly, he said. And he would make money off the sale, since his homes market value is above what he paid. But Carson, 39, has a 30year, 3.85 percent mortgage rate, so he isnt going anywhere. He refinanced into the lower rate last summer, reducing his monthly payment to $2,200 from $2,600. I have no interest right now in selling, he said. He and his wife plan to remodel instead. A shortage of homes for sale has plagued the housing market since late 2012. The number of available homes last year was the equivalent of just 4.9 months worth of sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. Thats far below the typical figure of 6 months. Inventory has recovered somewhat this year, partly because the spring buying season is underway, but it was still equal to just 5.6 months of supply in May. Meanwhile, sales of existing homes have fallen 5 percent in the past year. Yet prices rose 8.8 percent nationwide during the same period, according to CoreLogic, partly because of the limited supply. What economists call rate lock-in is one of several reasons so few houses are for sale. Another factor is that almost 40 percent of homeowners still dont have enough equity to enable them to sell. Some are underwater, with a mortgage higher than the homes value. Others may have so little equity that they cant afford to pay off the sales costs and put a down payment on their next property. We are in a uniquely difficult period for matching buyers and sellers, says Stan Humphries, chief economist at real estate data provider Zillow. Home prices are expected to keep rising in the coming months, though at a slower pace than the double-digit gains that occurred earlier this year. Higher prices should lower the number of underwater homes and enable more people to sell. But as the number of underwater homes falls, several studies suggest the impact could be offset by higher mortgage rates, which would increase the number of homeowners facing interest rate lockin. Most economists expect mortgage rates to rise later this year as the Federal Reserve ends its bond-purchase program, which is intended to keep borrowing rates low. Mortgage rate lock-in is going to be a major challenge for the housing market going forward, Humphries said. It is going to be a constant tug of war between buyers on one side ... and mortgage rate lock-in on the other side. Humphries forecasts that rates will reach 5 percent by the first three months of next year. That would mean those buying or refinancing now, at the current rates of about 4.1 percent, might never want to sell either. A 2011 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York concluded that for every $1,000 increase in a homeowners annual mortgage payment, the likelihood that homeowner would sell fell as much as 16 percent. Paul Bernard, a recruiter in New York City, says the issue has begun to interfere with some of his clients willingness to move for a new job. In one recent case, an employee at a large technology firm decided to postpone a job-related move to San Francisco partly because it would have forced him to take out a mortgage at a halfpercentage point higher than his current one. The job market in some cases is less mobile than it used to be, he said. Low rates have combined with rising rents nationwide to make renting out a home, rather than selling, more attractive. A rental index compiled by Zillow has risen 19 percent in the past year. Santiago Garcia, 30, and his wife both work from home and recently felt their 2-bedroom condominium was getting cramped. The couple was also thinking of starting a family. So in February they bought a new home in Oxford, Massachusetts, about 45 minutes from Boston. But the mortgage rate on their condo is just 2.95 percent, so they decided to keep it and rent it out. The mortgage is so low because its rate is adjustable after 10 years. Their monthly mortgage payment is only $540. But they are renting it out for $1,200 a month. The cash flow was so much, it was an easy decision, Garcia said. LEEREICH Associated PressPopeye aint the only bloke whos gotta have spinach. Some gardeners also crave it, freshly picked. This isnt spinach season, though. Spinach is sensitive to cycles of night and day, and summers short nights induce the plants to send up flower stalks, set seed and then die, instead of growing the succulent, broad leaves they do in spring and fall. Hot weather also plays a role in inducing flower stalks. Any gardener claiming to be harvesting spinach right now either lives in the tropics, where nights are never less than 12 hours long, or south of the equator. I guess if you lived in more northern climes and really loved spinach, you could cover the plants for a period each evening or morning, giving them more darkness during the two weeks when there are 10 hours or less of it naturally.Spinach kinCovering plants or moving far south seems to be more trouble than spinach justifies, especially when you could just plant a spinach substitute instead. These ersatz spinaches all bear well despite the heat and long days of summer. Some are actually close relatives of the real thing. A familiar one perhaps too familiar is redroot pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus). Youre probably already growing this spinach and yanking it out, for it is a common garden weed. For best eating, harvest the leaves while the plants are still young. Redroot pigweed is but one of many amaranths; others, such as Jacobs coat, are grown as ornamentals or forCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000IRHK 5569 W.

CHADGILLIS The News-PressFORT MYERS David Ceilley and his son Connor werent surprised last week when they pulled two clear-plastic fish traps from Owl Creek in East Lee County. Total catch: 21 African jewelfish (also known as jewel cichlids and African cichlids), four dollar sunfish and one sailfin molly. Although not surprising, the catch was disturbing because African jewelfish are an exotic (nonnative). Dollar sunfish and sailfin mollies are natives; in other words, the exotic species outnumbered the natives 4.2 to 1, at least in these two traps. The African jewelfish is one of 23 exotic (nonnative) freshwater fish species that have become established in Florida. African cichlids are the worst, said David Ceilley, a senior ecologist for Johnson Engineering. Theyre having a terribly negative impact. The biomass of jewel cichlids is massive. They can dominate a water body. Theyre prevalent in the Peace River and Caloosahatchee River and areas in between. For the past few years, an exotic saltwater fish species, the lionfish, has been in the news because it reproduces rapidly and eats huge numbers of juvenile native fish, including snappers and groupers. But how harmful are Floridas freshwater exotic fish species? We dont have many good scientific studies on how nonnative freshwater fishes are affecting native habitat and native species, said Pam Schofield, an exotic-fish expert for the U.S. Geological Service. We have observational data that show when a non-native fish becomes abundant in an area, we see changes. Blue tilapia, for example, arrived in Florida in 1961 when 3,000 were stocked in a series of Hillsborough County phosphate pits for aquatic plant control experiments and have been documented in 35 counties. Theyre so abundant, in fact, that a commercial fishery has grown up around them: In 2004 and 2005, the only years for which data are available, commercial fishermen in Florida harvested 5.8 million and 6 million pounds of blue tilapia with a dockside value of $1.79 million and $1.84 million. When blue tilapia become abundant, native fishes decrease, or vegetation decreases, Schofield said. But theres no smoking gun, no scientific studies that show they are the causative agent. Aside from the common carp, which was introduced from Europe into the Hudson River in 1831 and reached Florida in 1889, the first freshwater exotic fish documented in Florida was the Rio Grande cichlid, first reported in the Tampa area in the 1940s and Lee County in 2010 (it hasnt been reported in Collier County). Many freshwater exotics got into Florida waters when they were released from aquariums or escaped from fish farms. Pike killifish became established in the state after several specimens raised for medical research at the University of Miamis Department of Medicine were released into a local canal in 1957.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E11 E6SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000IR39 DETACHED VILLA, 2 BED, 2 BATH, 2-CAR, SOUTHGATE Detached Villa Unfurnished 2 bedrooms with a den 2 baths 2 car garage.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average rate for a 30-year loan rose to 4.15 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage increased to 3.24 percent from 3.22 percent. Mortgage rates are slightly lower than they were at the same time last year, having fallen recently after climbing last summer. Thats when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it has been using to keep long-term interest rates low. Rates have fallen modestly this year as Fed officials have signaled strongly that while they are trimming the bond purchases, they are in no rush to start boosting a key short-term rate the Fed controls. To calculate average mortgage rate, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage rose to 0.7 point this week from 0.5 point last week. The fee for a 15-year loan, popular in refinancing, increased to 0.6 point from 0.5 point last week. The average rate on a one-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 2.40 percent from 2.38 percent. The average fee was unchanged at 0.4 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage ticked up to 2.99 percent from 2.98 percent. The fee remained at 0.4 point. A prolific painter; another theory about mystery tool Dear John: I have two paintings my wife, now deceased, inherited from her parents. My wifes parents told her they purchased the paintings from Mr. Bierhals when they both lived in New Jersey. Mr. Bierhals lived in Tenafly, whild my in-laws in nearby Ridgefield. They are signed O Bierhals on the landscape of a path in the woods and A Bierhals on the still life of the vase of roses. Both are also signed on the back. Ibelieve, based on their history in my wifes family, that they are authentic Bierhals. I would be interested, if they are indeed authentic, in your opinion of their value and advice regarding who to contact for apossible sale. J.L.H., Beverly HillsDear J.L.H.: Otto Bierhals, 18791944, produced a large body of works landscapes, figurals, still life florals, and illustrations for paperback novels. His oil on canvas paintings have sold in the $300 to $3,000 range. Within the artists oeuvre, the two you have are low on the totem pole of market interest. I think it would be better to hold on to them for now. Potential dollar value in my opinion is less than $500 each. Dear John: I never wrote a Dear John letter before, but I think your mystery farm tool is a corn planter. The arm to the side weighted; the funnel closed while you stuck the point into freshly plowed ground. Then you pulled a string, which was attached to the arm, releasing one to three kernels of corn as you removed the tool from the dirt. Pull the tool up, repeat a foot further down the row, and repeat the process. R.S., Hernando John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

There is no charge to attend. her orchard began to show fruit and she was on her way. I planted and then grafted all the trees myself, she said. Based on experience, I learned. There are so many ways you can make a tree. I try my own way. I pruned by hand and watered by hand. I did everything by hand and my trees came back. Today, Orianas Oriental Orchard is USDA Certified Organic. She waters using her own underground spring and refuses to use chemical pesticides or herbicides, instead choosing a specific time to mow that she says keeps bugs from jumping into her trees. She and Jack mow the six-acre orchard area several times a season, and now tend to more than 500 trees. She annually sells more that a ton of Asian pears, pawpaws and persimmons, as well as a selection of berries, black walnuts and unusual fruit trees for home gardens at farmers markets or from their orchard. I like the farmers markets a lot because my food goes directly to the person who will enjoy it, she said. She said she might be aging, but is not ready to quit. Instead she has plans for expansion. I am building a greenhouse and will be planting ancient medicinal Chinese plants, Kruszewski said. It is something I love to do and, because I am Asian, it is already in my blood.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000IQKN 311 W.

Amaranths weedy nature is a plus when you grow them either for food or for ornament; their unique metabolism lets them thrive while most other plants are gasping in summer heat and dryness. Lambs quarters (Chenopodium alba) is another spinach or weed, depending on your perspective and taste buds. You should be able to find it in your garden now. Its sometimes called goosefoot, for the leaves resemblance to the foot of a goose. Another spinach relative common in gardens is Swiss chard. Chard is among the few greens which include kale, collards and another spinach soon to be mentioned that thrives in cool as well as warm weather. Sow chard seeds in early spring and start picking the outer leaves as soon as they are large enough to eat. Young ones keep growing from the center of the plant, which keeps bearing on into fall, often surviving even very cold winters. Winter survival makes for some fresh leaves in spring, but then the plants send up flower stalks induced, in this case, by cold weather rather than short nights. Not even distantly related to spinach but with spinach in their names are Malabar spinach (Basella rubra) and New Zealand spinach (Tetragonia tetragonioides). Sow Malabar spinach seeds indoors a few weeks before the last spring frost, and New Zealand spinach, which thrives in cool as well as hot weather, outdoors as soon as the soil thaws in spring. Dont get impatient waiting for New Zealand spinach seeds to germinate, for they are slow and erratic in doing so. In its native tropical haunts, Malabar spinach is a perennial vine that clambers up to 30 feet in height; in northern gardens, grow it as an annual reaching 4 to 6 feet. Giving it a trellis keeps the leaves off the ground and free of dirt, and makes a decorative, edible screen. Especially decorative, with purple stems and dark green leaves, is the variety Rubra. In contrast to Malabar spinach, New Zealand spinach stays earthbound, sending up just a short upright shoot from whose base sprawls ground-hugging shoots. Unrestrained, a single plant might gobble up a square yard of ground. Pluck off the fleshy, round, young Malabar spinach leaves or the shoot tips and leaves of New Zealand spinach whenever the urge for spinach strikes you. New Zealand spinach is good raw in salads, as well as cooked. If only Popeye could stay ashore long enough to plant a garden, he wouldnt have to settle for that canned spinach. JANEContinued from Page E3 SPINACHContinued from Page E5 ORCHARDContinued from Page E4 to have a space thats just simple and clean, he says. How do you design a room thats low-key and beautiful, not bland and boring?Soften every surfaceWithout warm, vibrant colors, you can create warmth in understated rooms by filling them with soft, elegant materials that look and feel appealing. Think of a camel cashmere sweater, says designer Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design in Los Angeles. Its the simplest thing in the world, but its timelessly beautiful and feels great. Materials like cashmere, silk and breathable fabrics such as linen or cotton blends bring a sense of warmth and comfort, Flynn agrees. He also recommends wood surfaces softened by white-washing, smooth stone surfaces, and broadloom carpet that adds texture and softness underfoot. Use natural and artificial lighting for a soft glow. Sheer curtains can maximize daylight, while in the evening, its about lamps, says New York-based designer Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs. Place lamps to evenly spread light throughout the space, eliminating bright spots and dark shadows. Flynn also recommends dimmers to control light precisely.Compelling shapesIn a subtle room without busy patterns or bold colors, find other ways to create interest, Call says. One strategy is using objects with interesting or intricate shapes that draw attention to workmanship and creativity. Burnham recently designed a bedroom with a large bed that featured beautiful wood carving, bringing some excitement to an otherwise subtle room. Flynn seeks out furniture with interesting detail, such as fretwork or inlaid paneling.Constrast and layerMonochrome doesnt mean only one shade; mix a variety of tans, beiges and creams into a neutral room. I usually add several shades and tints of the same neutral tone throughout the space to give it depth, Flynn says. Also use a variety of contrasting textures. Silk will maximize light, Call says, while materials like linen and cashmere absorb it. So use them together: Pair a linen sofa with silk pillows, for example, or a seagrass rug with a silk-covered chair. Think of what materials and shapes are missing, and then keep adding until they fit together like a puzzle, says Flynn. The key to a well-balanced room is a mix of natural materials.Keep it meaningfulIn a subtle but striking room, everything you do use should mean something, Burnham says. Either its an interesting shape, or the finish is unusual or the fabric is so fine and special. There are fewer items, but better ones. Your coffee table may be a neutral color and simple material, she says, but maybe its a vintage coffee table that has this amazing provenance or patina. Eliminate items that dont contribute much. If letting go of them is difficult, Burnham suggests this exercise: For everything you bring in, you take two things away. Flynn agrees: Editing plays a huge role in understated rooms, he says. In a dining room I did in Atlanta, I used all dove gray tones in the room, and every single element had highly sculptural qualities that made the play on shapes and texture the prominent story.

MELISSARAYWORTH Associated Pressaint your walls a bold color and friends will likely praise your creativity. Invest in a standout piece of furniture or striking work of art and your decorating is bound to earn compliments. But creating a noteworthy room with subtle, understated elegance is a bit more complicated. Understated style rides the fine line between too sparse and too cold, says designer Brian Patrick Flynn, creator of the FlynnsideOut design blog. A lack of objects makes a room feel unfinished, and a lack of color can also read of lifeless. But finding the right, subtle balance can be worth it. Although bold decorating has been in the spotlight for a while, a more neutral room, if well-designed, will never become tired, Flynn says.

Doing so would mean giving up an irresistible rate in exchange for a new mortgage carrying a rate up to a percentage point higher. Their monthly payments would be larger even for a house of the same price. Thats discouraging some people from selling, thereby limiting the supply of available homes and contributing to slower home sales. Its a significant shift from the way the U.S. housing market has worked for the past 30 years.

MELISSARAYWORTH Associated Pressaint your walls a bold color and friends will likely praise your creativity. Invest in a standout piece of furniture or striking work of art and your decorating is bound to earn compliments. But creating a noteworthy room with subtle, understated elegance is a bit more complicated. Understated style rides the fine line between too sparse and too cold, says designer Brian Patrick Flynn, creator of the FlynnsideOut design blog. A lack of objects makes a room feel unfinished, and a lack of color can also read of lifeless. But finding the right, subtle balance can be worth it. Although bold decorating has been in the spotlight for a while, a more neutral room, if well-designed, will never become tired, Flynn says.

Doing so would mean giving up an irresistible rate in exchange for a new mortgage carrying a rate up to a percentage point higher. Their monthly payments would be larger even for a house of the same price. Thats discouraging some people from selling, thereby limiting the supply of available homes and contributing to slower home sales. Its a significant shift from the way the U.S. housing market has worked for the past 30 years. For most of that time, whenever a homeowner decided to trade up to a better home, mortgage rates usually were lower than the last time they had bought. That helped make a new purchase seem more attractive. But that is changing.

There are so many ways you can make a tree. I try my own way. I pruned by hand and watered by hand. I did everything by hand and my trees came back. Today, Orianas Oriental Orchard is USDA Certified Organic. She waters using her own underground spring and refuses to use chemical pesticides or herbicides, instead choosing a specific time to mow that she says keeps bugs from jumping into her trees. She and Jack mow the six-acre orchard area several times a season, and now tend to more than 500 trees. She annually sells more that a ton of Asian pears, pawpaws and persimmons, as well as a selection of berries, black walnuts and unusual fruit trees for home gardens at farmers markets or from their orchard. I like the farmers markets a lot because my food goes directly to the person who will enjoy it, she said. She said she might be aging, but is not ready to quit. Instead she has plans for expansion. I am building a greenhouse and will be planting ancient medicinal Chinese plants, Kruszewski said. It is something I love to do and, because I am Asian, it is already in my blood.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE LARGEST SELECTION OF FORECLOSURES IN CITRUS COUNTY 000IQKN 311 W.

Amaranths weedy nature is a plus when you grow them either for food or for ornament; their unique metabolism lets them thrive while most other plants are gasping in summer heat and dryness. Lambs quarters (Chenopodium alba) is another spinach or weed, depending on your perspective and taste buds. You should be able to find it in your garden now. Its sometimes called goosefoot, for the leaves resemblance to the foot of a goose. Another spinach relative common in gardens is Swiss chard. Chard is among the few greens which include kale, collards and another spinach soon to be mentioned that thrives in cool as well as warm weather. Sow chard seeds in early spring and start picking the outer leaves as soon as they are large enough to eat. Young ones keep growing from the center of the plant, which keeps bearing on into fall, often surviving even very cold winters. Winter survival makes for some fresh leaves in spring, but then the plants send up flower stalks induced, in this case, by cold weather rather than short nights. Not even distantly related to spinach but with spinach in their names are Malabar spinach (Basella rubra) and New Zealand spinach (Tetragonia tetragonioides). Sow Malabar spinach seeds indoors a few weeks before the last spring frost, and New Zealand spinach, which thrives in cool as well as hot weather, outdoors as soon as the soil thaws in spring. Dont get impatient waiting for New Zealand spinach seeds to germinate, for they are slow and erratic in doing so. In its native tropical haunts, Malabar spinach is a perennial vine that clambers up to 30 feet in height; in northern gardens, grow it as an annual reaching 4 to 6 feet. Giving it a trellis keeps the leaves off the ground and free of dirt, and makes a decorative, edible screen. Especially decorative, with purple stems and dark green leaves, is the variety Rubra. In contrast to Malabar spinach, New Zealand spinach stays earthbound, sending up just a short upright shoot from whose base sprawls ground-hugging shoots. Unrestrained, a single plant might gobble up a square yard of ground. Pluck off the fleshy, round, young Malabar spinach leaves or the shoot tips and leaves of New Zealand spinach whenever the urge for spinach strikes you. New Zealand spinach is good raw in salads, as well as cooked. If only Popeye could stay ashore long enough to plant a garden, he wouldnt have to settle for that canned spinach. JANEContinued from Page E3 SPINACHContinued from Page E5 ORCHARDContinued from Page E4 to have a space thats just simple and clean, he says. How do you design a room thats low-key and beautiful, not bland and boring?Soften every surfaceWithout warm, vibrant colors, you can create warmth in understated rooms by filling them with soft, elegant materials that look and feel appealing. Think of a camel cashmere sweater, says designer Betsy Burnham of Burnham Design in Los Angeles. Its the simplest thing in the world, but its timelessly beautiful and feels great. Materials like cashmere, silk and breathable fabrics such as linen or cotton blends bring a sense of warmth and comfort, Flynn agrees. He also recommends wood surfaces softened by white-washing, smooth stone surfaces, and broadloom carpet that adds texture and softness underfoot. Use natural and artificial lighting for a soft glow. Sheer curtains can maximize daylight, while in the evening, its about lamps, says New York-based designer Jon Call of Mr. Call Designs. Place lamps to evenly spread light throughout the space, eliminating bright spots and dark shadows. Flynn also recommends dimmers to control light precisely.Compelling shapesIn a subtle room without busy patterns or bold colors, find other ways to create interest, Call says. One strategy is using objects with interesting or intricate shapes that draw attention to workmanship and creativity. Burnham recently designed a bedroom with a large bed that featured beautiful wood carving, bringing some excitement to an otherwise subtle room. Flynn seeks out furniture with interesting detail, such as fretwork or inlaid paneling.Constrast and layerMonochrome doesnt mean only one shade; mix a variety of tans, beiges and creams into a neutral room. I usually add several shades and tints of the same neutral tone throughout the space to give it depth, Flynn says. Also use a variety of contrasting textures. Silk will maximize light, Call says, while materials like linen and cashmere absorb it. So use them together: Pair a linen sofa with silk pillows, for example, or a seagrass rug with a silk-covered chair. Think of what materials and shapes are missing, and then keep adding until they fit together like a puzzle, says Flynn. The key to a well-balanced room is a mix of natural materials.Keep it meaningfulIn a subtle but striking room, everything you do use should mean something, Burnham says. Either its an interesting shape, or the finish is unusual or the fabric is so fine and special. There are fewer items, but better ones. Your coffee table may be a neutral color and simple material, she says, but maybe its a vintage coffee table that has this amazing provenance or patina. Eliminate items that dont contribute much. If letting go of them is difficult, Burnham suggests this exercise: For everything you bring in, you take two things away. Flynn agrees: Editing plays a huge role in understated rooms, he says. In a dining room I did in Atlanta, I used all dove gray tones in the room, and every single element had highly sculptural qualities that made the play on shapes and texture the prominent story.

CHADGILLIS The News-PressFORT MYERS David Ceilley and his son Connor werent surprised last week when they pulled two clear-plastic fish traps from Owl Creek in East Lee County. Total catch: 21 African jewelfish (also known as jewel cichlids and African cichlids), four dollar sunfish and one sailfin molly. Although not surprising, the catch was disturbing because African jewelfish are an exotic (nonnative). Dollar sunfish and sailfin mollies are natives; in other words, the exotic species outnumbered the natives 4.2 to 1, at least in these two traps. The African jewelfish is one of 23 exotic (nonnative) freshwater fish species that have become established in Florida. African cichlids are the worst, said David Ceilley, a senior ecologist for Johnson Engineering. Theyre having a terribly negative impact. The biomass of jewel cichlids is massive. They can dominate a water body. Theyre prevalent in the Peace River and Caloosahatchee River and areas in between. For the past few years, an exotic saltwater fish species, the lionfish, has been in the news because it reproduces rapidly and eats huge numbers of juvenile native fish, including snappers and groupers. But how harmful are Floridas freshwater exotic fish species? We dont have many good scientific studies on how nonnative freshwater fishes are affecting native habitat and native species, said Pam Schofield, an exotic-fish expert for the U.S. Geological Service. We have observational data that show when a non-native fish becomes abundant in an area, we see changes. Blue tilapia, for example, arrived in Florida in 1961 when 3,000 were stocked in a series of Hillsborough County phosphate pits for aquatic plant control experiments and have been documented in 35 counties. Theyre so abundant, in fact, that a commercial fishery has grown up around them: In 2004 and 2005, the only years for which data are available, commercial fishermen in Florida harvested 5.8 million and 6 million pounds of blue tilapia with a dockside value of $1.79 million and $1.84 million. When blue tilapia become abundant, native fishes decrease, or vegetation decreases, Schofield said. But theres no smoking gun, no scientific studies that show they are the causative agent. Aside from the common carp, which was introduced from Europe into the Hudson River in 1831 and reached Florida in 1889, the first freshwater exotic fish documented in Florida was the Rio Grande cichlid, first reported in the Tampa area in the 1940s and Lee County in 2010 (it hasnt been reported in Collier County). Many freshwater exotics got into Florida waters when they were released from aquariums or escaped from fish farms. Pike killifish became established in the state after several specimens raised for medical research at the University of Miamis Department of Medicine were released into a local canal in 1957.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E11 E6SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE C ARL M ANUCCI 352-302-9787 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000IR39 DETACHED VILLA, 2 BED, 2 BATH, 2-CAR, SOUTHGATE Detached Villa Unfurnished 2 bedrooms with a den 2 baths 2 car garage.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the nationwide average rate for a 30-year loan rose to 4.15 percent from 4.12 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage increased to 3.24 percent from 3.22 percent. Mortgage rates are slightly lower than they were at the same time last year, having fallen recently after climbing last summer. Thats when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it has been using to keep long-term interest rates low. Rates have fallen modestly this year as Fed officials have signaled strongly that while they are trimming the bond purchases, they are in no rush to start boosting a key short-term rate the Fed controls. To calculate average mortgage rate, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30-year mortgage rose to 0.7 point this week from 0.5 point last week. The fee for a 15-year loan, popular in refinancing, increased to 0.6 point from 0.5 point last week. The average rate on a one-year adjustable-rate mortgage rose to 2.40 percent from 2.38 percent. The average fee was unchanged at 0.4 point. The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage ticked up to 2.99 percent from 2.98 percent. The fee remained at 0.4 point.

My wifes parents told her they purchased the paintings from Mr. Bierhals when they both lived in New Jersey. Mr. Bierhals lived in Tenafly, whild my in-laws in nearby Ridgefield. They are signed O Bierhals on the landscape of a path in the woods and A Bierhals on the still life of the vase of roses. Both are also signed on the back. Ibelieve, based on their history in my wifes family, that they are authentic Bierhals. I would be interested, if they are indeed authentic, in your opinion of their value and advice regarding who to contact for apossible sale. J.L.H., Beverly HillsDear J.L.H.: Otto Bierhals, 18791944, produced a large body of works landscapes, figurals, still life florals, and illustrations for paperback novels. His oil on canvas paintings have sold in the $300 to $3,000 range. Within the artists oeuvre, the two you have are low on the totem pole of market interest. I think it would be better to hold on to them for now. Potential dollar value in my opinion is less than $500 each. Dear John: I never wrote a Dear John letter before, but I think your mystery farm tool is a corn planter. The arm to the side weighted; the funnel closed while you stuck the point into freshly plowed ground. Then you pulled a string, which was attached to the arm, releasing one to three kernels of corn as you removed the tool from the dirt. Pull the tool up, repeat a foot further down the row, and repeat the process. R.S., Hernando John SikorskiSIKORSKIS ATTIC Inside...

Yet mortgage rates now average 4.2 percent. That is still low by historical standards but up about three-quarters of a point from a year and a half ago. And should mortgage rates rise later this year and next, as many economists expect, even more homeowners will be affected. As a result, many homeowners with low rates are staying put. Others are moving and buying new homes, but keeping their old ones and renting them. Both choices mean that fewer homes are listed for sale, which drives up prices. Higher prices and limited selection have put the brakes on a housing recovery that began in 2012. And slower home sales, in turn, drag down economic growth. Fewer sales mean lower commissions for real estate agents. Sales of furniture, appliances and garden supplies also take a hit. Mark Fleming, chief economist at CoreLogic, estimates that as many as 3.6 million homeowners are unlikely to sell this year because they would have to give up a lower rate. They got the deal of the century, says Glenn Kelman, CEO of real estate brokerage Redfin. I dont think in 100 years anyone will be lending money at 3.5 percent. How do you walk away from a deal like that? Youd think Ryan Carson, an attorney in Seattle, would be ready to sell. He and his wife have one young child and they are expecting twins. They are going to hire a live-in nanny, which means there will be five people living in their four-bedroom house. I could probably use the extra space, honestly, he said. And he would make money off the sale, since his homes market value is above what he paid. But Carson, 39, has a 30year, 3.85 percent mortgage rate, so he isnt going anywhere. He refinanced into the lower rate last summer, reducing his monthly payment to $2,200 from $2,600. I have no interest right now in selling, he said. He and his wife plan to remodel instead. A shortage of homes for sale has plagued the housing market since late 2012. The number of available homes last year was the equivalent of just 4.9 months worth of sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. Thats far below the typical figure of 6 months. Inventory has recovered somewhat this year, partly because the spring buying season is underway, but it was still equal to just 5.6 months of supply in May. Meanwhile, sales of existing homes have fallen 5 percent in the past year. Yet prices rose 8.8 percent nationwide during the same period, according to CoreLogic, partly because of the limited supply. What economists call rate lock-in is one of several reasons so few houses are for sale. Another factor is that almost 40 percent of homeowners still dont have enough equity to enable them to sell. Some are underwater, with a mortgage higher than the homes value. Others may have so little equity that they cant afford to pay off the sales costs and put a down payment on their next property. We are in a uniquely difficult period for matching buyers and sellers, says Stan Humphries, chief economist at real estate data provider Zillow. Home prices are expected to keep rising in the coming months, though at a slower pace than the double-digit gains that occurred earlier this year. Higher prices should lower the number of underwater homes and enable more people to sell. But as the number of underwater homes falls, several studies suggest the impact could be offset by higher mortgage rates, which would increase the number of homeowners facing interest rate lockin. Most economists expect mortgage rates to rise later this year as the Federal Reserve ends its bond-purchase program, which is intended to keep borrowing rates low. Mortgage rate lock-in is going to be a major challenge for the housing market going forward, Humphries said. It is going to be a constant tug of war between buyers on one side ... and mortgage rate lock-in on the other side. Humphries forecasts that rates will reach 5 percent by the first three months of next year. That would mean those buying or refinancing now, at the current rates of about 4.1 percent, might never want to sell either. A 2011 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York concluded that for every $1,000 increase in a homeowners annual mortgage payment, the likelihood that homeowner would sell fell as much as 16 percent. Paul Bernard, a recruiter in New York City, says the issue has begun to interfere with some of his clients willingness to move for a new job. In one recent case, an employee at a large technology firm decided to postpone a job-related move to San Francisco partly because it would have forced him to take out a mortgage at a halfpercentage point higher than his current one. The job market in some cases is less mobile than it used to be, he said. Low rates have combined with rising rents nationwide to make renting out a home, rather than selling, more attractive. A rental index compiled by Zillow has risen 19 percent in the past year. Santiago Garcia, 30, and his wife both work from home and recently felt their 2-bedroom condominium was getting cramped. The couple was also thinking of starting a family. So in February they bought a new home in Oxford, Massachusetts, about 45 minutes from Boston. But the mortgage rate on their condo is just 2.95 percent, so they decided to keep it and rent it out. The mortgage is so low because its rate is adjustable after 10 years. Their monthly mortgage payment is only $540. But they are renting it out for $1,200 a month. The cash flow was so much, it was an easy decision, Garcia said. LEEREICH Associated PressPopeye aint the only bloke whos gotta have spinach. Some gardeners also crave it, freshly picked. This isnt spinach season, though. Spinach is sensitive to cycles of night and day, and summers short nights induce the plants to send up flower stalks, set seed and then die, instead of growing the succulent, broad leaves they do in spring and fall. Hot weather also plays a role in inducing flower stalks. Any gardener claiming to be harvesting spinach right now either lives in the tropics, where nights are never less than 12 hours long, or south of the equator. I guess if you lived in more northern climes and really loved spinach, you could cover the plants for a period each evening or morning, giving them more darkness during the two weeks when there are 10 hours or less of it naturally.Spinach kinCovering plants or moving far south seems to be more trouble than spinach justifies, especially when you could just plant a spinach substitute instead. These ersatz spinaches all bear well despite the heat and long days of summer. Some are actually close relatives of the real thing. A familiar one perhaps too familiar is redroot pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus). Youre probably already growing this spinach and yanking it out, for it is a common garden weed. For best eating, harvest the leaves while the plants are still young. Redroot pigweed is but one of many amaranths; others, such as Jacobs coat, are grown as ornamentals or forCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014E5 E12SUNDAY, JULY13, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000IRHK 5569 W.

TONYCARTONThe (Freeport) Journal-StandardWINSLOW, Ill. Oriana Kruszewski came to this country with her husband, Jack, from Hong Kong 43 years ago wanting to own a piece of land. She says it didnt have to be a lot of land or even the best quality ground. They were not strangers to hard work and they wanted to produce good wholesome food. Eventually they purchased 40 acres near Winslow and launched their dream Orianas Oriental Orchard. When I came here I missed certain things like the Asian pear, said Kruszewski. When I buy one here they look beautiful; they come with a jacket, but are very expensive. I wished I could grow them and thats how I got started. She calls herself a solo farmer because she works about six acres pretty much by herself. Jack still helps but works full time off the farm, and they are both getting older. All my trees I make myself, she said. I look around and when someone tells me they have a pear thats very good I taste it. If I like it I graft it on my own tree, and in a couple years I taste the pear again. If I still like it, I keep it. Grafting is a technique by which a section of a stem with leaf buds is inserted into the stock of a tree. It is used to reproduce an original cultivar, repair injured fruit trees or for topworking an established tree to one or more different cultivars. Nurseries often use a budding method to produce fruit trees. You got to love this or you wouldnt do it, Kruszewski said. In my third year I lost about 20 percent of my trees to the cold weather. I decided maybe everybody was right and I could not grow Asian pears in this part of the world, so I walked away from my trees. But later, I thought I would try again. She went back to work. Upon closer inspection, Kruszewski realized most of her root stock was still viable, so she started bud grafting them with hundreds of scions.

Aconcerned citizen rushed into the Dunnellon Public Library one Friday in mid-June to report there was a little old lady pulling up all the lovely Boston Ferns from the front entry flower beds. The staff told her this Boston fern was an invasive alien plant and would be replaced by a Florida native species after the infestation was completely removed. The lady then asked the gardener, a volunteer Friend of the Dunnellon Public Library, how to identify the exotic pest plant. A thorough information pamphlet, SS-AGR-22, titled Natural Area Weeds: Distinguishing Native and Non-Native Boston Ferns and Sword Ferns, by Ken Langeland, professor at University of Florida, is available online at http://edis. ifas.ufl.edu. On June 6, Keith Morin at the Department of Environmental Protection in Crystal River Buffer State Park provided the Friends of Dunnellon Public Library with printed copies of 10 circulars so the friends and public could be informed. Help Protect Floridas Natural Areas from Non-Native Invasive Plants, circular 1204, also by Langeland, explains the basics. As there are similar native ferns, it is important to correctly identify problem plants. Tuberous Sword, Nephrolepis cordifolia,was first discovered naturalized in Sumter County in 1933. It was then considered desirable. By 1938, it was under cultivation in Floral City. Today it has invaded natural areas from South Florida north to Georgia in hammocks, pinelands, flatwoods and abandoned lots next to cultivated gardens. Many homeowners are still unaware how damaging this alien plant can be. Asian Sword Fern, N. multiflora,was found to be driving out all other plants on Sanibel Island, Lee County in 1954. By 1965 it had invaded Boca Chica in Monroe County. Since the 1990s, this fern has been listed by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council, FLEPPC, as a Category 2 invasive. In 1999 it was upgraded to Category 1, as it actively alters native plant communities by displacing native species and the wildlife associated with those communities. A complete list is available online. The tuberous sword fern leaflets, called pinnae, often overlap the central stem, called a rachis. Its roots have brown tubers, about three-quarters of an inch in diameter, growing along them. Dig up the roots, as pulling generally leaves the tubers underground to re-sprout. Beneath desirable landscape plants, small re-emerging fronds can be killed with a diluted 1.5 to 2 percent solution of glyphosate herbicide. Apply carefully on a windless day, as glyphosate will kill desirable vegetation, too, if it gets on their leaves and translocates to the roots. Glyphosate strongly combines with soil particles, where it breaks down chemically within weeks. It has not been found to leach through soil into the aquifer, nor does it cause cancer in lab animals. Always follow the directions on the label. More is not better. The beds and surrounding parklands at Dunnellon Library will need constant monitoring to detect new alien invasive plants that drift in. Volunteers are needed to remove invasive plants at state, county and municipal parks, and libraries, churches, schools, trails and greenbelts. Sugarmill Woods has a serious problem with alien Skunk Vine. Rainbow Springs State Park has an ongoing struggle to remove Asian and Tuberous Sword Ferns. Read and learn to identify exotic invasives. Prevent aliens by using native plants in the garden. Remove invasive plants from your property.

Dear R.S.: Well, there is a first time for everything. I am glad you wrote. I suspect you used the planter in your youth. Dear John: I have a couple of boxes of books that belonged to my dad and his older brother back when they were 8 to 12 years old. They are 78 and 80 now. The books are a miscellaneous collection of fiction, Terry and the Pirates vs. The Dragon Lady for example. They are cheap hardbounds. I was just wondering if they might be worth anything or how I could find out. I hate to just toss them. T.L., InternetDear T.L.: There is some interest in the books you have. I suggest you contact the Florida Antiquarian Booksellers. The website is www.floridabooksellers.com. Good luck. Dear John: I have the platter in the attached picture. My great aunt brought it over from England early in the last century. It has always been used for Thanksgiving turkey as long as I can remember. It is 13 inches wide and 16 1/2 inches long. It has several very definite marks on the underside. In a circle within a circle it says C&W; inside the inner circle is a figure of a kneeling man on a block with on it, and underneath the circle it says Late Mayer. There is also a diamond-shaped mark separated into sections, I have sent a picture, since it is quite complicated. I am not interested in selling it, but would like to know when and where it was made. I always enjoy reading your articles. Thank you for any information you can give me. R.R., InternetDear R.R.: You have a very attractive platter. The condition appears to be excellent, a testimonial to the care it has had over a century of use. The platter was made in England. Your photographs are good and the backstamp is quite visible. The diamond shape mark is a design registration mark. The letters Rd in the center stand for registration design; the Roman numeral at the top indicates ceramics: the letter K is the date letter for 1883; the letter G is the month February; and the number 20 is the day of the month. I was not able to find a listing for the makers mark. The pattern is Japan. Potential dollar value is $100 to $200.John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

It likely dates back to 19th century England. ATTICContinued from Page E6 You have a very attractive platter. The condition appears to be excellent, a testimonial to the care it has had over a century of use. This species, which has been documented in Collier County but not Lee County, is thought to compete for food with juvenile snook and has been reported to reduce populations of mosquitofish, which help control area mosquitoes by eating mosquito larvae. African jewelfish were first documented in Hialeah in the 1960s, probably the result of aquarium releases; the species was first reported in Collier County in 2002 and Lee County in 2003. From October 2006 to February 2011, Ceilley was principle investigator for a study of freshwater fish communities in man-made and natural waterways across Babcock Ranch in Charlotte and Lee counties. Ceilleys team collected 9,059 fish from 26 species and found that the two dominant species were native mosquitofish and African jewelfish; a single 12-inch-by-6-inchby-6-inch trap would sometimes catch 150 African jewelfish. The study showed that African jewelfish not only ate native fish, but they also bit off the tails of natives, causing fungal infections that led to death. One positive discovery from the study is that African jewelfish are very cold-sensitive and suffered mass dieoffs during major cold events in 2009 and 2010. Unfortunately, many survived in the slightly warmer water of canals, and the population quickly recovered. Theyre a bad actor, Ceilley said. Theyre the lionfish of the freshwater ecosystem. They make good aquarium fish. Thats where they belong. We sure wish none of them was here, said Kelly Gestring, director of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Non-Native Fishes Laboratory. Now its up to us to try to develop ways to cope with these guys. Theres no way we can get rid of them, so its important to stress prevention: Dont release them into the environment. Once theyre out there, theres not a lot we can do. EXOTICContinued from Page E11 2421 N. Lecanto Hwy., Beverly Hills 527-7842 8375 S.
