Local students win High School Fishing World FinalsThis year, the big one didnt get away. Local students Brandon Branch and Hunter McPherson won the 2014 High School Fishing World Finals on Saturday, beating out a field of 21 teams to bring home glory, a college scholarship and a few creature comforts. Branch and McPherson, students of Crystal River High School and Citrus High School, respectively, made the finals in 2013, but finished in 14thplace. This year, the team set out on Lake Dardanelle in Russellville, Arkansas, on the tournaments final day and brought back five fish weighing a total of 16pounds, 8ounces enough to secure victory. For their win, the boys will each receive a $4,000 college scholarship, a 50-inch flatscreen TV, $500 in Cabelas gift cards and, of course, a world championship trophy.

Partly cloudy.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning SUNDAY Brad Bautista/staff writer Once we have the proof Associated PressHRABOVE, Ukraine International monitors moved gingerly Saturday through fields reeking of the decomposing corpses of the victims of a Malaysian airliner shot down over rebel-held eastern Ukraine, trying to secure the sprawling site in hopes that a credible investigation of the disaster can be conducted. The crash that killed all 298 people aboard the plane two days earlier intensified the already-high animosity on all sides of the conflict. The Ukrainian government and separatist rebels accuse each other of shooting down the Boeing 777 with a surface-toair missile. Many see the hand of Russia, either for its alleged support of the insurgents or perhaps firing the missile itself. The crash site is near the Russian border. Amid wide calls for an international investigation, doubts arose about whether the evidence was being compromised before inspectors ever reach the scene. Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed in a phone call on Saturday that the sides should enter talks and stop fighting, according to a Kremlin statement. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. counterpart John Kerry took a similar view, a Foreign Ministry statement said.

Page A3SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE From staff reports Associated PressMIAMI Federal officials say a developer building a Walmart on a tract of disappearing forest between two national parks in South Florida should stop all work until a survey of endangered wildlife is completed. TheMiami Heraldreported that in a letter sent to Ram Realty Services, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said at least eight threatened species, including the federally protected Florida bonneted bat and two endangered plants, could inhabit roughly 140 acres of pine rockland in Miami-Dade County. Ram should first obtain a federal permit before proceeding with any work that could threaten protected species, said Craig Aubrey, a field supervisor for the wildlife service. We want to work with them to make sure theres a project that balances the economic development with the needs of the species there, Aubrey said. Its not just one species. Theres a lot of sensitive resources out there. Aubrey said federal wildlife officers are concerned that the project will damage critical habitat outside a 40-acre section set aside as a preserve. Ram Chairman Peter Cummings said the company is reviewing the recommendations and plans to meet with wildlife officials. We will take no action that disturbs the natural environment before resolving the Services concerns, Cummings said. The environment will be a valuable asset for the community we plan to create. Environmentalists expressed concerns about the development plans after the University of Miami this month sold an 88-acre tract of endangered pine rockland to Ram, a Palm Beach County developer planning a 185,000-squarefoot Walmart for the space, along with restaurants and 900 apartments. Ram agreed to set aside 40 acres for a preserve. Just a sliver remains of about 165,000 acres of pine rocklands that once stretched from Homestead to the Miami River. The rare rocklands occur in just two places in the world Miami-Dade County and the Bahamas and provide habitat for a host of animals, insects and plants found no place else on Earth. Feds warn project pits Walmart against wildlife Rare pine rockland habitat home to at least eight threatened or endangered species Ferris exhibit returns to Floral City museumPATFAHERTY Staff writerThe late L.G. Doc Ferris was bigger than life and remains a legend in Citrus County. FLORAL CITY HERITAGE MUSEUM /Special to the ChronicleIn 1961, L.G. Doc Ferris was instrumental in getting Floral City a fire engine. He and his friend, attorney Charles Fitzpatrick of Inverness, went to Wisconsin to pick up the truck and drove it back to Floral City, stopping for a celebration in Inverness. living billboard and shipping a box of oranges to the governor of every state except California. He sent oranges to the White House and conducted personal tours of the groves in his Cadillac convertibles. He also was involved in selling land back in 1953 with Ferris Groves Lakeshore Estates. But Doc Ferris claimed he wasnt a developer, he just wanted neighbors. And while the groves are closely linked to Floral City, the Doc Ferris story actually starts in Homosassa, where Ferris father was an investor during the land boom of the mid 1920s. The exhibit tells how the subsequent real estate bust sent the elder Ferris to Duval Island and its then-languishing orange grove. A whole panel is devoted the famous fire truck he picked up in Wisconsin in 1961 and drove back to Floral City, stopping for a celebration in Inverness. In addition to the famous fruit stand in Floral City, Ferris built others, including an elaborate store on U.S. 19 in Crystal River. It has since been demolished and the site redeveloped. As for what draws people in to experience the Ferris exhibit, I think it is the man himself, said Peters. People really want to know about him. His name has been part of the 20th-century history of Floral City for so long. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. He put Floral City on the map as he promoted Ferris Groves and his beloved oranges. Everything about him was big, bold and flashy, including his personal life and contributions to the community. He left an enduring legacy of local agriculture and one of the most famous roadside fruit stands in the South. The Floral City Heritage Hall Museum has brought those times back with its current exhibit, The Ferris Years: From Ferris Wheels and Citrus Groves to Livestock and Berry Fields. The popular production has returned for a second run, taking visitors from the areas early Depression-era days through Docs fame and success to a modern-day farm known for its strawberries, blueberries and environmental practices, as well as its storied oranges. The extensive exhibit includes large informative story panels, a collection of photographs, memorabilia from the groves, newspapers and advertisements and items linked to Ferris, including his infamous poker table. Its a retrospective on the growth and development of the region, covering the land boom, the citrus industry, celebrities, roadside attractions, wealth, politics and changing times. The photographs and graphics have been digitized and are displayed in slideshow format on a large TV screen. We have broken it into two eras, explained Frank Peters, one of the Floral City Heritage Council volunteers who put the display together. We have the Doc Ferris era, which is the beginning of Ferris Groves, on nine 3-by-6-foot panels. Then we have five panels that are after Docs death and after his widow, Harriet Ferris, decided to sell the groves out on Duval Island. Then onto the present day. He said the great thing about the current owner is that he has kept the property out of the hands of developers and continues to use it as an agriculture operation, protecting the environment and the history. This is an important history for Floral City. Peters said, noting Doc Ferris was a promoter and, once he decided to resurrect the groves, he was like a P.T. Barnum. He really promoted Floral City. In addition to being an employer, he put Floral City on the map. Doc Ferris considered himself a comedian and poet, often turning his creative abilities into publicity stunts such as the WANT TO GO?The Ferris Years: From Ferris Wheels and Citrus Groves to Livestock & Berry Fields is the current exhibit at the Floral City Heritage Hall Museum. It is scheduled to run through June 2015. The museum, which includes the Heritage Country Store, is in the Floral City Town Center on Orange Avenue, one block east of U.S. 41. The museum is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Friday and Saturday and by special request. For more information, visit floralcityhc.org. L.G.

A lawyer for Kasems daughter Kerri Kasem said Friday that when he went to give a Tacoma funeral home a copy of the restraining order, he was informed it no longer had the remains. They said they could not disclose where he had gone or where he would end up, said the lawyer, Scott Winship Tim Grant, funeral director at Gaffney Funeral Home & Cremation Services, confirmed Friday that Kasems body was no longer there. I cannot discuss the actual arrangements themselves, but hes no longer in our care, he said. Kasems wife of the past 34 years, Jean Kasem filled out a death certificate dated July 15 listing an address in Jerusalem, Israel, according to a copy filed in Pierce County Superior Court. The document listed removal from state as the intended means of disposing the remains, the Urgel Bourgie funeral home in Montreal as the place of disposition, and July 14 as the date of disposition. A man who answered the phone at Urgel Bourgie on Friday evening said it had disposed of no such remains and had no one by the name of Casey Kasem in its computer system. Teruyuki Olsen, a lawyer for Kasems wife, refused to comment Friday or provide any information about what happened to Kasems body. Kasem, the radio host of American Top 40 and voice of animated television characters like Scooby-Doos sidekick Shaggy, died June 15 at a hospital in Gig Harbor. He was 82.Johnson calls Christie a buddy despite videoLOS ANGELES Dwayne Johnson says he considers New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a buddy despite making Christie take down an online video that featured the Hollywood star. I know Gov. Christie. Weve met a couple of times, the wrestlerturned-action star said Friday. But in no way was I associated with what he had going on. ... I saw it. I was like, Well, I dont have anything to do with it, so now youve got to pull it down. Christies office last week removed Johnson from a trailer it posted to YouTube for a mock summer blockbuster titled No Pain. No Gain, a riff on the title of Johnsons film Pain & Gain. The trailer features clips of Christie warning of an impending budget crisis, along with dramatic music and sound effects. The clip is cut together with scenes of explosions and a car chase.

BUSTERTHOMPSON Contributing writerThe voices of 90 choir members from Arizona, California and Florida filled the voids of silence in Northern France in remembrance for those who gave their lives during Operation Overlord, or D-Day, marking the 70th anniversary of allied paratroop and boat landings in Normandy. Singers ranging from ages 24 to 85 performed at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, La Trinit Church in Paris, and in Sainte-Mre-glise, in memory of the Allied assault on the Normandy coastline that began June6, 1944. Members of the Citrus Community Concert Choir were part of the 2014 Salute to Valor Music Festival last month. Margot Konerding, of Citrus Springs, is a tenor with the choir and noticed the difference between the choirs rehearsals and standing on the stages in front of the hundreds in attendance. When you see that and you really get to feel that, what comes out of your throat is totally different, Konerding said. What we sang made different sense and just went deeper ... Ill never forget that. For Konerding, the moments before each performance struck not just the chords of her voice, but her memories of witnessing wartime in Europe herself as a child. I was very moved by each and every one of them. For me it was an experience I wont forget, she said. Ranging from the grand to the petite, the interiors of the churches provided some of the best acoustics the choir could have hoped for. Saint-Mre-glise was the smallest church, but it had the most fantastic acoustics, said Konerding. You have to picture almost 100 voices singing in a beautiful acoustic arena. Although residents of the areas werent informed of the ceremonies until a few days prior, each venue hosting the Salute to Valor choir was full with attendees. There was not much advertising. People just came, each one was packed, and that was very gratifying, Konerding said. The 172-acre Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial has 10 separate gravesite areas, totaling 9,387 headstones. Leading from a 22-foot statue in the memorial of The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves, a reflecting pool connects to a westward pathway, which divides the sites and meets at a chapel in the center of the cemetery. You look down on a long reflecting pool, then you see the gravesites, said Konerding. Its one thing to see it on the TV, but when youre there its very, very peaceful. The appreciation expressed for the musical performances was humbling. We got standing ovations, Konerding said. We did encores. Thats unheard of.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY20, 2014 A5 MANAGERS SPECIALS 000INP5 Hwy. 44 W.

Sadly, her mother died during childbirth and she was raised by her Aunt Polly, her mothers sister. Ellens father had been badly injured during World WarI, having lost a leg in battle, and he died when Ellen was just 13. After her fathers death, she and her siblings were lovingly cared for by their Aunt Polly and Uncle Jimmy, who raised the children as their own. Ellen received her registered nurse degree and became matron and director of nursing at Victoria Hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, where she worked for over 30 years. She was highly thought of and much-loved by her staff and patients. She enjoyed traveling and visited many countries, including India, Australia and the Holy Land. Her love of travel led to her accompanying the Phoenix Choir to America, where she met her future husband, Heinz Pistoll. They were later married and enjoyed 24 very happy years together until his death on June20, 2014. After being a winter visitor from Washington state for 20 years, she and Heinz relocated permanently to Florida, where she was very involved in the Inverness Garden Club and First Presbyterian Church. Left to cherish her memory is her twin brother Robert and his wife Irene; her brother-in-law Tommy Pattison; her cousin Nan Russell; Margaret and Janie of Scotland; Heinzs children Carl Silski, Ohio, Larry Pistoll, Washington, and Lynn Pistoll, New Zealand; Linda Tuttle, Washington; eight grandchildren; and six greatgrandchildren.

Three candidates are vying for the one open seat District3, from which 16-year board member Pat Deutschman is retiring when her term ends in November. The District4 race is to fill the remaining two years of the term won in 2012 by Susan Hale, who resigned less than two months after taking office. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Sandy Balfour, who lost the superintendent of schools race to incumbent Sandra Sam Himmel in 2012, to complete Hales first two years. And its the school board, not the county commission, that collects the largest chunk of property taxes (about 60percent). It oversees the safety and education of 15,000 students and is the countys largest employer with more than 2,000 teachers, administrators and support staff. At a forum Thursday night hosted by the Citrus Hills Civic Association, school board candidates had the first crack to explain their platforms. Heres a sampling of what each said:DISTRICT 1 Tom Corkery, a General Motors Corp. retiree, said he is running for office to change what he believes is a low graduation rate coupled with high taxes. I am not a happy camper, he said. H. Dean Morrison, who has taught in the school district and also Cypress Creek Academy, the juvenile prison in Lecanto, said operating a school district is not the same as running a business, where profit is the bottom line. Its all about our kids, he said. Our kids are the bottom line. Incumbent Thomas Kennedy, the board chairman, pointed to many of the districts successes, including being one of just 10 A-plus school districts in Florida. Our district has continued to be a state leader, he said.DISTRICT 3 Doug Dodd, who retired from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office as a captain in February after 26 years on the job, helped to start the school resource officer program and was an SRO for 10 years. Dodd said his focus would be on school safety. And he wants students to participate in learning that emphasizes patriotism. I want our students to continue learning about our country, he said. Quinton Herrin Jr., a retired air traffic controller, is a regular at school board meetings. I am not an opportunist and Im not running as an afterthought, he said. Herrin doesnt put much faith in statistics that show Citrus County ranking among the states highest on test scores. He said the U.S. ranks poorly compared to other countries. Our kids are the least ignorant of the ignorant, he said. Sheila Whitelaw is a familiar face to the school board, having served from 1994 to 1998 before losing a re-election bid to Deutschman. Whitelaw now teaches ninth-grade reading at South Sumter High School. Whitelaw said her classroom experience gives her an edge. I know what works and what doesnt, she said.DISTRICT 4 Beverly Howard has taught in Citrus County schools since 2001 and was the district Teacher of the Year in 2011. Its time for me to give back to the community, she said. Howard said she supports a rigorous curriculum that allows students who dont attend college to find a job when they graduate from high school. Incumbent Sandy Balfour has served on the board for about 13 months, since her appointment. Balfour, a former teacher at the Academy of Environmental Sciences, also is a member of the College of Central Florida Board of Trustees. Balfour said she does her research before board meetings. My vote is an educated vote, she said.DISTRICT 5 Donna Fletcher works at the Academy of Environmental Sciences, where she wears many hats, including administrative secretary, data entry clerk and acting guidance counselor. Fletcher said she supports more funding for classroom instruction and wants to open the lines of communication between the board and public. Incumbent Linda Powers, who has served 10 years on the school board, is a former teacher and counselor in Citrus County schools. Powers said she supports a stronger emphasis on vocational education. I used to be called the cheerleader of vocational education, she said, when I was at the middle school.A8SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWORLD/LOCAL Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Crystal River Hampton Inn 1103 N Suncoast Blvd. Attend a FREE Spine Seminar: call 1-888-847-8876 to RSVP.

LASKO/For the ChronicleJason Isaacs crosses the finish line Saturday in Lecanto to win the Key Training Centers 38th annual event, Run for the Money. Again. Isaacs also won the run in 2013. escorted them through the final steps of the Run for the Money. Runners crossed 180 miles from the Capitol in Tallahassee to the Key Training Center campus in Lecanto for the annual Run for the Money. While the grueling journey is to raise awareness about the developmentally disabled, it is especially significant in that it brings attention to the need for donations to cover the expenses of Key clients who dont receive government support. The community support was just phenomenal, said Neale Brennan, Key Foundation director. It was amazing to see the families, neighbors, friends and pets that could physically become apart of the run. Everyone just kept coming and joining in. I kept seeing different-colored T-shirts and it was great to see them a part of this and loving it. The clients, of course, were so excited to be the honorary captains of their own Walk a Mile in My Shoes team. Sixteen Key resident runners sported a T-shirt bearing the color for their team, as friends, families, businesses, civic organizations and church groups more than 200 participants sponsored a team in Walk a Mile in My Shoes, which took place moments before the finale. Teams of 10 or more sponsored an honorary Key client as its captain and made the onemile walk through the Lecanto campus. They finished just in time to join the welcome-home parade for the runners. During the run you become drained, but when you come around that corner and see those clients, it gives you a boost of energy as you see who you are running for, said runner Michael Williams. Indeed, the runners felt the community support, as well. When we got into Citrus County, everyone was honking and waving, said runner Stephanie Stevens. Some of the people came out and gave us water, also. Each of the runners will tell you they ran to support the clients and in hopes of raising revenue to support them financially. Throughout the day, the Key Training Centers Run for the Money Telethon aired. The program was hosted by community personalities and featured stories and interviews with clients, families, volunteers and staff. The total money raised was $205,903.54, which included $78,776 from the Reach for the Stars Auction on July 11.

RUNNERSContinued from Page A1 meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Friday, the U.S. pointed blame at the separatists, saying Washington believes the jetliner likely was downed by an SA-11 missile and we cannot rule out technical assistance from Russian personnel. The government in Kiev said militiamen have removed 38 bodies from the crash site and have taken them to the rebel-held city of Donetsk. It said the bodies were transported with the assistance of specialists with distinct Russian accents. The rebels are also seeking large transports to carry away plane fragments to Russia, the Ukrainian government said Saturday. In Donetsk, separatist leader Alexander Borodai denied that any bodies had been transferred or that the rebels had in any way interfered with the work of observers. He said he encouraged the involvement of the international community in assisting with the cleanup before the conditions of the bodies worsens significantly. Ukraine called on Moscow to insist that the pro-Russia rebels grant international experts the ability to conduct a thorough, impartial investigation into the downing of the plane echoing a demand that President Barack Obama issued a day earlier from Washington. On Saturday, in the village of Hrabove, one passengers body was seen still strapped into an airline seat, with bare toes peeking out under long jeans. Another body was flung face-up into a field of blue flowers. Treatment of the victims remains, left in the open air under a hot summer sun punctuated by bursts of rainfall, has provoked outrage and distress. The news we got today of the bodies being dragged around, of the site not being treated properly, has really created a shock in the Netherlands, Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans told the Ukrainian president in Kiev. People are angry, are furious at what they hear. Timmermans demand ed the culprits be found. Once we have the proof, we will not stop until the people are brought to justice, he said. Merkel and Putin agreed on Saturday that an independent, international commission led by the International Civil Aviation Organization, ICAO, should be granted swift access to the crash site, German government spokes man Georg Streiter and the Kremlin said. The commission should examine the circumstances of the crash and recover the victims, said Streiter, adding that Merkel urged Putin to use his influence over the separatists to make that happen. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said in a video statement the international community is demanding separatists provide free access to the crash site, that the victims bodies are properly recovered and the evidence is secured. Russia has a key role to play in that through its influence on the separatists and the worlds eyes will be on Russia to see that she delivers on her obligations over the next few hours, he said.

A developer had sought to use the 213-foot stub-out to access 40 landlocked acres he owns. Residents, fearing the potential impact of traffic on their neighborhood, requested that county government vacate the property to, in effect, thwart the developers plan. After a contentious six months, the county commission voted in favor of the residents application to vacate the stub-out. They are seen here preparing to remove the Application Pending sign that had been posted after theyd made the formal request to county government. JOE DUBE/Special to the Chronicle Habitat seeks hand-me-downs CHRISVANORMER Staff writerFurniture, house wares and building supplies are the specialty of ReStore, Habitat for Humanity of Citrus Countys thrift store but not clothing. And yet, residents should not be surprised to see ReStore donation boxes specifying clothing and shoes. The house-building charity that put 16 families into new homes last year and is on schedule to do the same this year is seeking donations of old garments in addition to the dining sets, cabinets and sinks it usually attracts. ReStore has never turned away clothing donations, but now it is campaigning for more of them. What has ReStore been doing with old clothes? We actually sell them to Suncoast Textile Recycling out of Tampa, said Wendy Malik, director of ReStore operations. They either turn around and sell it or they give it away. They recycle it, but if its not usable they turn it into insulation and other stuff. They give to charities. They sell to other countries. On its website, the recycler states: Suncoast Textile Recycling has been forming partnerships with nonprofit organizations turning clothing, shoes, belts, purses, linens and cell phones into funding opportunities. I wish we could do clothing, Malik said. Its a great moneymaker. Were run on volunteers. We just dont have the workforce to do clothing the way that you need to do it properly. All the linens sold by ReStore are washed, dried and folded, so that they are clean to put onto beds when the buyer takes them home. But laundering clothing would be too labor-intensive, and also would take up a lot of floor space. Increasing its clothing recycling is a new opportunity to raise construction funds. The ReStores responsibility is to support the house building, so every penny we make goes into building homes and paying salaries, Malik said. Theres a company called Collection Box that approached us and said: Would you be interested in recycling? Collection Box Inc. is a partner with Suncoast Textile Recycling, Malik said. Now, when we go out to pick something up, well take the bag of clothing, said Bob Swain, donations coordinator. We do whole house clean-outs with whole closets full of clothes. Weve already entered into agreements with a couple of locations (around Inverness), said Carmen Bruno, Inverness ReStore manager. What we are looking for is more businesses that will give us a small piece and we are talking about a 4-by4 (-foot) section of a parking space. Once we can get about 10 agreements, boxes will be brought in and our subcontractor will service the boxes. A regular route will run throughout the county to pick up the donated clothing and shoes from the boxes. It will be as transparent as we can make it, Bruno said. We dont want to impact the business owner. If a collection box needs immediate attention, a business owner can call Habitat for a speedy response, Malik said. If they call me and say, Wendy, we have a mattress outside of our box, one of our box trucks is going to go right over there, Malik said. And if they dont, well jump in his pickup and well go clean it up. Were not going to make your business look junky. Messy collection boxes for forprofit companies that place them on business sites without the owners consent have become an eyesore as debris piles around them. We will get rid of that box that they dont want and put in one our own, Malik said. We would remove that box, no charge, no problem. Our collection guy told us, anybody who wants those boxes gone, well be happy to get rid of them.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. COLLECTION BOXES Habitat for Humanity of Citrus County pledg es to maintain clean and wellserviced collection boxes and also to remove for-profit boxes that suddenly appear. Business owners who want to offer collection box space to Habitat should call Wendy Malik or Carmen Bruno at 352-342-1800.

Page A10SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Things looking up Associated PressVolunteer Matt Moore leans out to check his progress as he removes a wall panel on the historic Clay House in the Zion Hill District on Saturday in Nacogdoches, Texas. The African-American Heritage Project group bought the house with hopes of restoring it and opening a community center and history museum. High winds push growing wildfireWINTHROP, Wash. Pushed by howling, erratic winds, a massive wildfire in north-central Washington was growing rapidly and burning in new directions Saturday. Road closures and evacuations were changing regularly, as hot weather and winds with gusts up to 30 mph were pushing the fire over ridge tops and toward a cluster of small towns northeast of Seattle. As of Saturday morning, the lightning-caused fire had scorched nearly 340 square miles in the Methow Valley. The fire was measured at 260 square miles Friday.Lightning a threat in ND oil patchWILLISTON, N.D. Three massive fires since the beginning of June have highlighted the threat lightning poses in the North Dakota oil patch, and in each case it was tanks that store the toxic saltwater associated with drilling not the oil wells or drilling rigs that were to blame. The lightning-sparked fires destroyed the groups of silo-like storage tanks at the three locations, which are among more than 440 sites in North Dakota where so-called saltwater is stored before being pumped into permanent disposal sites miles underground. In each case, the fires burned for days, spewing noxious black smoke into the air and literally salting the earth. Although disposal tanks arent likely more susceptible to lightning strikes than similar structures that jut out over the prairie, their fiberglass components and combustible contents make it very likely theyll go up in flames when they are hit. Youre creating the perfect mixture for ignition, said Bruce Kaiser, president of the Clearwater, Florida-based Lightning Master Corporation. Counterintuitively, its the water tanks that blow up, not the oil tanks.Cubs sue over fake mascotCHICAGO The Chicago Cubs have filed a lawsuit against several people whom the team accuses of being behind a fake mascot that has been engaging in bad behavior near Wrigley Field, including getting into a bar fight that was captured on video and posted online. The team filed its lawsuit on Friday in federal court in Chicago against John Paul Weier, Patrick Weier and three other unnamed individuals whom the team says dress in the bear costume, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The team accuses those behind the fake mascot of demanding tips for photos, making rude, profane and derogatory remarks and gesticulations, and punching a man at a bar near the ballpark. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS Sun and sea Associated PressA sunbather lies on a rock over as operations to refloat the luxury cruise ship Costa Concordia continued Saturday on the tiny Tuscan island of Isola del Giglio. Once the ship has refloated it will be towed to Genoas port, about 200 nautical miles, where it will be dismantled. Thirty months ago it struck a reef and capsized, killing 32 people. Paris police wound coin thief in MetroPARIS Police in the French capital said they shot and wounded a thief with about $135,000 in gold coins in a rare chase in the Paris Metro. The thief had stolen the coins Saturday afternoon from a shop after hitting the seller on the head with a crowbar. The thief ducked into the entrance of the nearby Grands Boulevards Metro station after taking two shelves of gold coins from the specialty shop. He fired at a team of police who pursued him, and officers fired back, wounding an arm, police said.In retaliation, Russia bans AmericansMOSCOW Russia has placed a U.S. lawmaker and 12 other people connected with the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq on its list of those banned from entering the country. In a statement Saturday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said congressman Jim Moran, a Democrat from Virginia, was banned in response to the July 2 U.S. ban on Russian parliament member Adam Delimkhanov. He said Moran had been repeatedly accused of financial misdeeds, but didnt elaborate. The other 12, including Guantanamo commander Rear Adm. Richard Butler and Lynndie England, a former soldier convicted of abusing prisoners in Abu Ghraib, were banned in response to the United States adding 12 names in May to the socalled Magnitsky List of Russians sanctioned for human rights abuses. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA woman passes by posters that express Polish opposition to Russia on Monday in Warsaw, Poland. Associated PressGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Israeli bulldozers on Saturday demolished more than a dozen tunnels the military said were being used by Hamas gunmen to sneak beneath the southern border of the Jewish state and carry out attacks on its soldiers and civilians. Palestinians reported intensified airstrikes and shelling as the death toll from Israels ground offensive rose to at least 342 Palestinians. Several Israelis have also died since fighting began more than 10 days ago. Israeli soldiers uncovered 34 shafts leading into about a dozen underground tunnels, some as deep as 30 yards, the military said. Still, Palestinian gunmen disguised in Israeli uniforms managed to infiltrate Israel from Gaza using another tunnel and on Saturday killed two Israeli soldiers and injured several others, the military said. At least one Palestinian was killed in the clash. Hamas said 12 of its fighters participated in the attack and that the group took some of the soldiers weapons back to their hideouts. In two other confrontations, Palestinian gunmen jumped out of tunnels and shot at soldiers who returned fire. Two of the gunmen were killed. Another militant died when the explosive vest he was wearing went off, the military said. In one instance, the militants were found with tranquilizers and handcuffs, indicating they intended to abduct Israelis, according to the military. It was the second day that Palestinians had used their network of underground tunnels to penetrate Israel in the current round of fighting. Israel embarked on its ground offensive on Thursday, the same day 13 heavily armed Palestinians sneaked through a tunnel from Gaza and emerged inside Israel near a southern community. The militants were killed by an airstrike after they popped out of the tunnel. Clashes persisted into late Saturday, with heavy fighting reported in several parts of Gaza. Shimon Daniel, a retired brigadier general and former head of the Israeli militarys engineer corps, said the military knew that Hamas had a large number of tunnels designed to assault Israel. I think finding 13 tunnels in such a short time is a great achievement, he told Channel 10 TV. Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Kidra said the new round of airstrikes raised the death toll from the offensive to at least 342 Palestinians, many of them civilians. In Israel, a Gaza rocket killed a man near the southern city of Dimona and wounded four people, police said, marking the second Israeli civilian casualty from the fighting. Early Saturday, Israeli tank fire killed at least five members of the Al Zawaydi family at their home in Beit Lahiya, including two children. In a separate incident, tank shell fire killed three members of the Hamooda family in their home, among them two children. In Gaza City, two boys and a 12-month-old infant neighbor were killed Friday evening following the break of the Ramadan fast. Associated PressIsraeli forces flares light up the night sky Saturday in the northern Gaza Strip. Israel demolishes alleged Hamas tunnels Associated PressWARSAW, PolandPolands foreign minister had sharp words on the downing of the Malaysia Airlines jumbo jet in Ukraine blaming the crash on Russiabacked bandits. But throughout most of central and eastern Europe, leaders withheld judgment, expressing shock but refusing to say more until more facts are in. The caution is not surprising: Several former Soviet satellite states have developed closer economic ties to Russia in recent years, making them unwilling to take a strong stand against Moscow in the Ukraine conflict. Though all have condemned Russias annexation of Crimea, they are divided over what to do beyond that, differences dictated largely by the depth of those economic ties and whether they feel at risk themselves from Moscows might. With uncertainty surrounding Thursdays plane crash, most have little to gain from pointing fingers, especially since the tragedy, which killed 298 people, is unlikely to blunt Russias growing clout in the region, experts say. No one should expect change in the relations between Russia and any of the central European countries unless clear evidence of Moscows involvement is presented, said Dariusz Kalan, an analyst with the Polish Institute of International Affairs. Even then, a radical turn would be unlikely since the political, economic and energy contacts are so developed. A temporary and mostly rhetorical chill of relations with Russia is the heaviest reply that the region can afford, Kalan added. Other experts argued, however, that confirmation of Russian involvement in the crash would force the region to take a harder stance against Moscow. In some ways, divisions in the former Soviet bloc mirror tensions further West: France and Germany have continued to cultivate business ties with Russia, while the United States has taken a stronger line. On the plane crash, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said theres still no clarity, showing more caution than the United States, with President Barack Obama linking the crash to sophisticated equipment ... coming from Russia. But Russias old Soviet bloc neighbors do face uniquely wrenching choices. The region has a history of dependence on Russian oil and natural gas. Economic ties deepened further after the global financial crisis of 2008-09 pushed several countries to forge new economic deals with Russia. When Western markets shrank, export-oriented countries like the Czech Republic turned to Russia, China and elsewhere for new opportunities. Those who back the toughest stance toward Russia are Poland, the three Baltic states and Romania all countries that fear for their own safety due to proximity to Russia and which, unlike their neighbors, are trying to limit Russian influence at home. The large numbers of ethnic Russians in Estonia and Latvia 25 and 30 percent of the populations respectively add to Baltic anxieties. Hungary and Bulgaria have been pursuing new deals that increase their energy dependence on Russia. Bulgaria is probably the most pro-Russian country in the region, with sympathies born of a Slavic brotherhood rooted in past alliances. Associated PressBAGHDAD The message played over loudspeakers gave the Christians of Iraqs second-largest city until midday Saturday to make a choice: convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death. By the time the deadline imposed by the Islamic State extremist group expired, the vast majority of Christians in Mosul had made their decision. They fled. They clambered into cars and headed for the largely autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq or other areas protected by the Kurdish security forces. Their departure marks the latest and perhaps final exodus of Christians fromthe city, emptying out communities that date back to the first centuries of Christianity, including Chaldean, Assyrian and Armenian churches. Iraq was home to an estimated 1 million Christians before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein. Since then, militants have frequently targeted Christians across the country, bombing their churches and killing clergymen. Under such pressures, many Christians have left the country. Church officials now put the community at around 450,000. Most of Mosuls remaining Christians fled when the Islamic State group and an array of other Sunni militants captured the city on June 10 the opening move in the insurgents blitz across northern and western Iraq. As a religious minority, Christians were wary of how they would be treated by hard-line Islamic militants. For those Christians who remained in the city, the order first made over loudspeakers and later in leaflets made clear their status. Under threat, Christians flee Mosul Ukraine crisis shows divisions in old Soviet bloc

EXCURSIONS Page A11SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE AMANDAMIMS CorrespondentEditors note: This is the first in a two-part series on outdoor destinations in Northwest Florida.For adventure seekers, the Florida Panhandle is a diverse and oftentimes wild place, from its islands to its rushing tannic rivers and out-of-the-way springs. Here are a few spots to add to your adventure bucket list. Econfina CreekPushed into downed trees and limbs, you wrestle with the current and sharp curves of the water. You paddle harder, but the coffee-colored creek is moving faster than you can maneuver, and its almost a constant struggle to keep your canoe going straight and out of the snags. To the side of the dark water, a blue-green color emerges when the creek meets its match in a deep, clear spring that gushes with so much force deep below the surface that it creates a firm line against the rushing brown water. You pause to appreciate it until you remember there are more springs like it ahead of you, so you continue paddling with the current in search of them. This is Econfina Creek. Its well traveled but still feels wild and, at times, even undiscovered, this fast-moving water that snakes its way through woods and carves steep limestone banks alongside it. The area around Econfina Creek, not to be confused with Econfina River, in southwest Jackson County, was once home to Choctaw and Creek people. Now the waterway is a favorite among paddlers in part because of its 11 named springs, where many stop to rest, snorkel or swim. Rental canoes and kayaks and shuttle services are available at Econfina Creek Canoe Livery in Youngstown, 1.5 hours west of Tallahassee. From the launch, its a 3.5-hour paddle to the liverys pickup spot, which covers a section of the creek and six spring areas. For more information, visit the canoe liverys website at www.canoeeconfina creek.net. Trips on the 26-mile creek are not limited to the section the livery offers the entire paddling trail is 24 miles long. But only experienced paddlers should use the upper portion of the trail.Blackwater RiverSilky smooth, the color of tea. Fast enough to cruise with ease and slow enough to jump in and cool off without being swept away. Atlantic white cedars towering on high banks above you might make give the impression youve traveled well beyond Florida, but you havent. The Blackwater River stretches 56 miles from Alabama to Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico. Its pure, tannic water, white-sand beaches and easy current make it ideal for paddling and tubing. There are several places along the river to put in, and a good spot for a day paddle is Blackwater River State Park near Milton, about 2.5 hours west of Tallahassee. The nearby outfitter, Blackwater Canoe, offers tube, canoe and kayak rentals and shuttle services. With campgrounds for tents and RVs within short walking distance of the river, the state park makes an ideal home base for a weeklong vacation. Watch for alligators, deer and river otters while youre there. For more information, visit www.floridastateparks.org/blackwater river or www.blackwatercanoe.com. Adventure awaits in the Panhandle AMANDA MIMS/For the ChronicleABOVE: Paddlers pass one of several springs on Econfina Creek. BELOW LEFT: Paddlers and tubers float along the Blackwater River, which starts in Alabama and runs through Northwest Florida into the Gulf of Mexico. BELOW RIGHT: The many springs on Econfina Creek make it a popular paddling destination.

A12SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 30 years. We have four wonderful children, all college graduates with great jobs in their chosen careers. They are also involved in long-term relationships with people we like and respect. So whats the problem? One of my daughters is at least 40 pounds overweight and doesnt seem to be doing anything about it. No one else in our family has a weight problem. We have always led an active lifestyle and encouraged healthy eating habits. We first noticed our daughters weight gain when we visited her at college. Her roommates were overweight, and she said they all ate when they were stressed. She seems to have continued with those bad habits. Whenever I try to discuss this with her, she shuts me down and says she doesnt want to talk about it. Her boyfriend is also overweight, so Im sure that doesnt help. I worry that if she doesnt get a handle on this while shes young, it will become more difficult as she gets older. Do you have any suggestions that will help me encourage her to lose weight? Frustrated Mom Dear Mom: Your daughter knows she is overweight and probably doesnt like it any more than you do. But losing weight is difficult, and she must be motivated. Since her college friends and her boyfriend also have weight issues, she may have come to see her size as acceptable, and her eating habits also reflect the way she has been living for the past few years. We know how hard it is for you to see your daughter struggle with something that will have an impact on her health, but she is an adult, and this is a do-ityourself project. Just tell her you love her and want her to be healthy, and hope that she will do the rest on her own.Email anniesmailbox @comcast.net, or write to: Annies Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 737 Third St., Hermosa Beach, CA 90254.

SUSANMONTOYABRYAN Associated PressALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Not many people have been to Coyote Canyon, a remote spot on the nations largest American Indian reservation. Bordered by sandstone outcroppings and dotted with pinon and juniper, the location served as a perfect backdrop for an unprecedented venture into high-tech public art by the Navajo Nation and the state of New Mexico. With the canyon as their blank canvas, Navajo teacher and artist Bert Benally and Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei teamed up for the Pull of the Moon installation in late June. Benally was on the ground in western New Mexico while Ai, who has been banned from leaving China, participated from afar. The goal was to temporarily transform the landscape through sand drawings, sculpture and sound. While the public couldnt visit the site, organizers with the Navajo Nation Museum and New Mexico Arts had every bit of the project documented with photographs and video so it could be virtually replicated for the rest of the world to see. In the last two weeks, they have been working feverishly in preparation for Wednesdays public launch some 220 miles away in Santa Fe. Aside from a two-dimensional documentary, the scene at Coyote Canyon that June night will be screened inside a giant digital dome. Clouds will be drifting overhead as the flames from Benallys piece illuminates the desert surroundings along with the interlocking stencils created with dozens of pounds of powdered porcelain sent by Ai from China. Theres just so much that went into it that we made the decision to have a more cutting-edge technology format. It will bring it more to the people in a way that will make them feel like theyre right there, said Eileen Braziel, the projects coordinator. In a matter of days, nature reclaimed the site, erasing any signs of the artists creations. It was part of New Mexico Arts TIME project, or Temporary Installations Made for the Environment. The latest TIME installation marks a new kind of public art for New Mexico, where most art resides on the walls of public buildings, is permanently on display in common areas or integrated into architecture. Over the last two decades, the states public art program has placed more than 2,500 pieces. What the state is doing is changing up, in a big way, what art in public places means, Braziel said. For the Navajos, its about changing outside perceptions of tribal members and forging new roads for Native artists. Were experimenting and seeing where these new roads will lead, said Navajo Nation Museum Director Manuelito Wheeler. The Pull of the Moon digital dome will be on display this weekend on Museum Hill, and organizers plan to take the exhibition on tour.TRAVELCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, JULY20, 2014 A13 GREAT GETAWAY 209 N.

Associated PressNEW YORK The World Cup is over but the Brazilian party will go on in New York City. Over nine days, having begun Friday, nearly 20 acts representing a cross section of Brazilian popular music will play at venues across the city for the fourth annual Brasil Summerfest. The festival may do little to avenge Brazils spectacular World Cup flame out, but at the very least it will show that the South American country has more than soccer: They still have their samba. Hopefully all the artists will be happy because soccer is a sensitive topic to talk about in Brazil, said Brasil Summerfest founder Petrit Pula, adding that he thinks the festival will get a boost from the Cup, because youre thinking about Brazil all the time, youre hearing, youre watching a sporting event thats taking place in Brazil and here you have a Brazilian music festival. While Spanish-language sounds are amply represented in New York City, Portuguese-language Brazilian music has long flown below the radar. Pula aims to change that. There was never really a platform for these Brazilian musicians, he said. When he tried to persuade producers at Central Parks Summerstage to do something to change that, he couldnt seal the deal until he took one of them down to Brazil to hear great music together. It was supposed to be a day or two but it turned out to be week and now its growing fast, he said. This years acts range from Bebel Gilberto, daughter of bossa nova giant Joao Gilberto, to Lenine, who spikes intricate rhythms from Brazils northeast with dashes of electronica. One of the most intriguing acts is Roge, who will play at the City Winery on July 22. The modern samba star has a surferboy image many liken to a Brazilian Jack Johnson, a comparison Roge chafes at. Our sounds have very different roots. I have a swing, a dance beat that he doesnt have. But you know, having a beach life style, being a beach character, I can see that we share a similar image but I dont see it in the sound, Roge said. Best of Brazilian music coming to New York City

Page A14SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE VETERANS Special to the ChronicleDepartment Commander Jay Conti Sr., a member of American Legion Post 155, Crystal River, was elected state commander of Florida at the 96th annual Department Convention in Orlando on June 14. Conti earned his eligibility through his 21 years of service in the U.S. Navy from 1981 to 2001. Conti was born Sept. 25, 1962, in Mineola, New York, to Alfonso and Antoinette Conti, who are now deceased. He has lived in Florida for the past 45 years; his parents moved from New York when he was 7 years old (1969). He has been married to his Citrus High School sweetheart, the former Toni Bruns of Inverness, for 33 years. They have two daughters, one son and one grandson. Toni Conti is an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary and just completed a term as American Legion Auxiliary, 4th District president. Conti entered the U.S. Navy on March 3, 1981. After completing basic training in Orlando, and Operations Specialist School in Dam Neck, Virgina, he and Toni were married at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Inverness. He was not only a sailor, but also a leader in many ways. He managed, supervised and operated the Navys most sophisticated radar and communications equipment in the Combat Information Center War Room of the many naval ships he served, as well as being one of the Navys TOP air intercept control supervisors. Conti controlled numerous U.S. and its Allied fighter jets and had more than 3,000 live successful career intercepts in both combat and training missions. He honed his skills as an air intercept controller while stationed at Naval Air Station Key West, then the home of the U.S. Navys East Coast Top Gun School. These tours of duty took Conti around the world numerous times. He deployed on many ships on six Mediterranean, one Persian Gulf and one South American deployments, as well as other deployments to Europe, Central America, Africa and the Caribbean. He has seen service in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, as well as sailing in the Mediterranean, Black, Red, Norwegian, Aegean, Caribbean, Arabian, Baltic, North, Irish and Celtic seas, including the Gulf of Mexico and Persian Gulf. Further service was in other waterways, including dodging icebergs of South America (Chilean Inner Waterway) and sailing the Panama, Suez, Kiel (Germany) and All-Burg (Denmark) canals. He retired from active service as a senior chief petty officer on Nov. 19, 2001. Conti has served in many positions through the years including post commander, post vice commander, adjutant, finance officer, district vice commander and district commander and is a graduate from the National American Legion College Class of 2009. Conti, a member of the National Security Council, has also served at the department as sergeant-at-arms (2012-13) and vice commander (2013-14). As a life member of VFW 4337, AMVETS 447, DAV 70, Fleet Reserve 186, ANAVICUS, Citrus County Veterans Association, 40 & 7 Voiture 1219, and the Legion Riders, Conti has made a point to encourage initiatives across the veterans community throughout the state. Conti is dedicated to fighting and advocating for veterans rights, with great attention to the needs of veterans, active-duty servicemen and servicewomen and their families. The commanders motto, Full Speed Ahead for Veterans, has been a mainstay within the veterans community in the state of Florida by providing support and assistance. With current membership of 130,000 veterans in Florida and 2.5 million members worldwide, the American Legion is the nations largest veterans organization. The American Legion was founded in 1919 on the four pillars of a strong national security, veterans affairs, Americanism and youth programs. For more information, call the American Legion Department of Florida at 407-295-2531, ext. 239, or email Commander@floridalegion.org.

The benefit will feature refreshments, a 50/50 drawing, silent auction, music provided by Jo Jo Jones and a live radio broadcast. Corrines Hair & Nails will offer complimentary haircuts, with all donations benefitting the children. Make an appointment by calling 352-746-0010.

There has been a significant shortfall in government money allotted to children with parents lost in war. The American Legion wants to ensure higher education is a possibility for children whose parents have been killed while serving our country. These children are the innocent casualties of war and helping to provide them an education is a powerful way for our community to show our thanks, Roby said.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Recreation/B4 Football/ B4 Auto racing/B4 McCarthy gets first win with Yankees, 7-1 over Reds./B2 SPORTSSection BSUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 000IPN9 Price throws 8 shutout innings; Rays top Twins Associated PressMINNEAPOLIS Pushing the Tampa BayRaysback toward .500 might be David Prices way of dampening trade rumors. The All-Star left-hander pitched eight scoreless innings to win five straight starts for the first time in his major league career, and the Tampa BayRaysbeat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 Saturday night for their fourth consecutive victory. Price (10-7) gave up four hits, matching his season low, and struck out nine to increase his major league-leading total to 173. He got in trouble only once, giving up consecutive singles to Chris Parmelee and Eduardo Escobar in the fifth before Eduardo Nunez grounded into an inning-ending double play. Jake McGee got two outs for his eighth save in nine chances, completing a five-hitter. Phil Hughes (10-6) allowed five runs and 11 hits in seven innings, matching the most hits against a Twins starter this season. He is 3-4 with a 5.63 ERA in his last seven starts. Tampa Bay took a 3-0 lead in the second on Jose Molinas RBI single and Sean Rodriguezs 10th home run of the season, a twodrive into the second deck in left. It was the 10th home this season off Hughes, who allowed 35 in 2012 and 24 last year. TheRaysmade it 5-0 in the seventh on Molinas RBI groundout and Rodriguezs runscoring single. Minnesota scored in the ninth against Juan Carlos Oviedo on Kurt Suzukis one-out, RBI single. NOTES: Twins 1B Joe Mauer took grounders before the game with coaches Joe Vavra and Paul Molitor. It was Mauers first baseball activity since he went on the 15-day DL on July 2 because of a strained right oblique. He said theres certain things he does right now that he still feels it, coughing and sneezing and things like that, definitely feels it, so hes obviously not ready to take swings or any of that stuff, manager Ron Gardenhire said. ... Gardenhire gave a day off to OF Josh Willingham, who is 2 for 10 in his career against Price and batting .208 this season. Willys fine, hes healthy. Hes just missing his pitch right now. ... Ben Zobrists first-inning single off Hughes was his first hit against the former Yankees pitcher in 17 career at-bats. ... Tampa Bay will try for the sweep on Sunday when it starts RHP Chris Archer (5-5), who is 2-0 and hasnt allowed an earned run in two career starts against the Twins. Minnesota RHP Kevin Correia (5-11) is 1-2 over his last three starts despite opponents hitting .242 against him. Associated PressTampa Bay Rays starting pitcher David Price throws against the Minnesota Twins Saturday in the first inning of a baseball game in Minneapolis. Majka wins 14th stage on Tour Associated PressRISOUL, France Rafal Majka of Poland won the 14th stage of the Tour de France a second day of punishing Alpine climbs and over the highest point on the race as Vincenzo Nibali again extended his overall lead by finishing second on Saturday. Majka led a breakaway on the final climb in the 177-kilometer (110-mile) roller-coaster course over two infamous climbs, including the 2,360-meter (7,742foot) Izoard pass, and a finish up to Risoul ski station. The one-two result was the flip of Fridays entree into the Alps: Nibali won, and Majka was second. Majkas victory was the first on this Tour by his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank team, which lost main leader Alberto Contador when he crashed out injured on Stage 10. The stage didnt shake up the top five standings. Nibali strengthened his hold on the yellow jersey, making the Tour from here to the finish in eight days in Paris looking more and more like a race for podium spots behind him. Nibali crossed 24 seconds behind Majka, followed by JeanChristophe Peraud in third, two seconds slower. Two French riders, Thibaut Pinot and Romain Bardet, conducted a two-man sprint and crossed another 24 seconds back. American Tejay van Garderen was fifth, 54 seconds back of the Polish rider. Alejandro Valverde lost a minute to Nibali. Overall, the Italian leads second-place Valverde by 4:37, and third-place Bardet by 4:50. Todays stage offers some relief after the Alps: Stage 15 is a flat 222-kilometer (138-mile) course from Tallard to Nimes. Associated PressRory McIlroy of Northern Ireland celebrates Saturday playing a birdie on the 14th hole during the third day of the British Open Golf championship at the Royal Liverpool golf club, Hoylake, England. Associated PressHOYLAKE, England Rory McIlroy looks as if he has just thrown a knockout punch at the British Open, and it was only Saturday. When he rolled in a 10-foot eagle putt on the final hole for a 4-under 68, he straightened his back, stared defiantly at thousands of fans crammed into the horseshoe arena around the 18th green at Royal Liverpool and lightly pumped his fist. He went from being tied for the lead to six shots ahead of Rickie Fowler in just over an hour. And suddenly, the biggest challenge facing the 25year-old from Northern Ireland was reminding himself that he had one more round left. McIlroy cant afford to picture his name etched on the base of that silver claret jug. He cant think about what it will be like next April to drive down Magnolia Lane at Augusta National with a shot at becoming the sixth player to capture the career Grand Slam. Im not taking anything for granted, McIlroy said. He knows that from experience, good and bad. He blew a four-shot lead at the Masters in 2011 and shot 80 in the final round. He had an eight-shot lead at the U.S. Open two months later and set two scoring records to win by eight. And just two months ago, McIlroy came from seven shots behind to win by seven. It looks like a lost cause for Fowler, Sergio Garcia and anyone else trying to chase down a guy who has won both his majors by eight shots. The six-shot lead was the largest at The Open since Tiger Woods led by six at St. Andrews in 2000. Even so, McIlroy was doing his best to preach caution.

New York won the first two in a three-game interleague series, leaving Cincinnati with five straight losses on the road. Acquired from Arizona in a July 6 trade, McCarthy (1-0) struck out nine and walked none over six innings in his second start for the Yankees and first at home. He threw 71 of 99 pitches for strikes, improving to 3-0 in his last four outings after winning only once in his initial 16 starts this season.AMERICAN LEAGUE RedSox2, Royals 1BOSTON Rubby De La Rosa pitched seven solid innings and Mike Napoli hit a tiebreaking homer to lift the BostonRedSoxto a 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

Joe Kelly (2-1) gave up four hits, struck out four and walked one in his second outing since a three-month stint on the disabled list caused by a strained left hamstring. He retired his last 13 batters as the Cardinals won for the eighth time in 10 games. Kelly didnt get a decision on July 11, when he gave up six runs over three innings during the Cardinals 7-6 win at Milwaukee. Trevor Rosenthal, the Cardinals third reliever, got his 30th save in 34 chances when Andre Either grounded into a game-ending double play.Phillies2, Braves 1ATLANTA Cole Hamels held the Braves to four hits through seven innings, Jimmy Rollins hit a two-run homer, and the PhiladelphiaPhilliesbeat Atlanta 2-1.

Grady Sizemore reached base four times, going 3 for 4 and scoring on Rollins homer.Giants 5,Marlins3MIAMI All-Star Tim Hudson pitched into the eighth inning and got the run support he needed as the San Francisco Giants beat the MiamiMarlins5-3. Hunter Pence drove in two runs and Pablo Sandoval had three hits for the Giants, who have won four of five. Giancarlo Stanton hit his National League-best 23rd home run for Miami, which has lost six straight. Hudson (8-6) came into the game with just five runs of support in his last five starts, but the Giants jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the fourth inning, which was enough for the 39-year old veteran.

His previous low was 1 1-3 innings at the Marlins on June 18, 2010, according to STATS.

And Ive been on the right side of it and Ive been on the wrong side of it. You cant let yourself think forward. Youve just got to completely stay in the moment, and thats what Im going to try to do for all 18 holes tomorrow. History is on his side. No one has ever lost a six-shot lead in the 121 years that The Open has been contested over 72 holes. Boy Wonder would not seem to be a candidate. What you have with him is hes just so explosive, Jim Furyk said after a 71 left him 10 shots behind. He won the U.S. Open by eight shots. He obviously doesnt have any issue as the front-runner, and has no issue trying to extend that lead, much like Tiger used to. McIlroy was at 16-under 200. If Im able to go out and get off to a good start, maybe I can put a little bit of pressure on him, Fowler said after a 68. Because hes definitely in control of the golf tournament right now. Fowler tried to do his part on a cloudy Saturday with occasional rain, but not nearly what the R&A expected when it went to a two-tee start of the first time in history. Fowler, who was six shots behind going into the third round, ran off three straight birdies to start the back nine and shared the lead when McIlroy made bogey on No. 12. It all changed so quickly. Fowler made a bogey on the 14th hole. McIlroy, playing in the group behind, drilled a 35-foot birdie putt that put his lead back to two shots. Rickie was just getting close to me, McIlroy said. I could hear the cheers in front of me. I just wanted to get ahead. To hole a putt like that was huge. And thats when he turned it on. McIlroy blasted a drive on the par-5 16th hole and hit 4-iron from 252 yards over a pot bunker to the left side of the green and made a 15-foot eagle putt. That restored his lead to five shots, for Fowler had driven into a pot bunker and made a bogey. Fowler recovered with a superb shot out of the pot bunker on the 18th to tap-in range for birdie. That put the American into the final group for the second straight major, both times a long way out of the lead. He trailed Martin Kaymer by five shots going into the last day of the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2. Fowler didnt get closer than four shots from Kaymer in the final round. Garcia, who played in final group with Woods at Royal Liverpool in 2006, certainly had his chances. He was only three shots behind at the turn until missing a short birdie putt on No. 12 and failing to convert so many other chances. Garcia had a 69 and was seven shots behind, along with Dustin Johnson (71). Its going to be difficult, Garcia said. But well give it a shot. This was Rorys show, just like it was at Congressional, just like it was at Kiawah Island when he won the 2012 PGA Championship. And yet the biggest crowd belonged to Woods, the sports biggest star who is playing his first major since back surgery four months ago. Woods narrowly made the cut on Friday, opened with two straight birdies and that was about all the excitement. He made another double bogey, another triple bogey and shot 73. Woods was 19 shots out of the lead. The biggest challenge for McIlroy might be to avoid looking ahead. It was hard. Asked what it would mean to be one major away from a Grand Slam at 25, McIlroy said, It would mean a lot of hype going into Augusta next year. Id be in pretty illustrious company, he said. OPENContinued from Page B1 Dunnellon 1, Northeast 0After topping West Pasco 3-2 yesterday in Game 1 of sectionals, Dunellon put together another win Saturday over Northeast 1-0.

The big win for Inverness came after an 11-7 victory over West Pasco on Friday.Citrus Park 11, Crystal River 3Crystal River couldnt manage to advance in the sectional tournament after suffering an 11-3 blowout to Citrus Park on Saturday. The loss followed a 4-2 beating Friday to Largo. From staff reports SPORTS BRIEFS Associated PressSYLVANIA, Ohio Lee-Anne Pace made a name for herself as an amateur in her native South Africa, then proved herself with eight wins on the Ladies European Tour. Now shes ready to make waves in the U.S. Pace shot a 3-under 68 on Saturday to grab a share of the third-round lead with Laura Diaz in the Marathon Classic. She can barely express what a breakthrough win on the LPGA Tour might bring. Itll mean quite a lot to be able to come out here and play well, she said after recovering from bogeys at 11th and 12th holes with three late birdies. It already has made my week. I was so tired in the beginning of the week and now this has happened, so Im very excited. Pace could have foundered after losing the two shots to par. But she came right back to birdie the next two holes and then added another at the par-5 17th to join Diaz at 11-under 202. The 33-year-old, in her 10th year as a pro, wants to keep it simple in the final round at Highland Meadows. I play a very similar type of game every time I go out there: Hit the fairways and try to hit the green and make the putt. And so far its been working, she said. Hopefully, coming down the stretch its going to be enough. It was a day of highs and lows for Diaz, the leader since birdieing her first five holes in an opening 62. She led by four and then three strokes after the first two rounds. Chasing her first win since 2002, she could have regained the outright lead but left a 7-foot birdie putt short on the 18th to finish with a 71. Up by three shots on the fourth hole on Saturday, the 39-year-old faltered with a double-bogey. After pull-hooking her drive under a pine tree, she and caddie Pete Smith moved away some twigs and the ball moved. The gallery around her let out a collective gasp. She quickly assessed herself a one-shot penalty and ended up punching back to the fairway, hitting to the green and two-putting for the double. By the time Diaz got to the tee at No. 9, rookie Jaye Marie Greens torrid play had pulled her into a tie for the lead. Playing one group ahead, Pace would nail a 20-foot birdie putt from the fringe to join them. But before Paces putt, Diaz hit the shot of the day. Officials had moved the tees up on the 255-yard, par-4 hole to allow players to go for the green off the tee. Pace and playing partner So Yeon Ryu, the 2012 winner of the Marathon, vacated the putting surface to allow Diaz and Lydia Ko to hit their drives. Diazs ball landed 25 yards short of the green and had a bead on the pin before edging past. Diaz later rolled in the 10-foot downhill eagle putt to regain a twoshot lead. Diaz bogeyed the 12th. The lead remained one shot until Pace hit into the deep rough near the bunker fronting the par-5 17th, dropped a delicate gap wedge to 8 feet and then rolled in the birdie putt to forge the tie. Diaz consistently left birdie putts short all day. Asked if a player can ever forget how to win after a long respite, she said, I cant say that I knew how to do it then, and I dont know that I know how to do it now. Green applied pressure with a low round early on the cloudy day.

BOWLERS OF THE WEEK: Dorine Fugere, 124 pins over her average, Andrew Allen, 88 pins over his average, and Bryan Craig and David Howell, 122 pins over their average. Parkview LanesNEWS Associated PressMINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Vikings will suspend special teams coordinator Mike Priefer without pay for three games this season and donate $100,000 to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights groups in response to former punter Chris Kluwes allegations of anti-gay slurs and taunts made by Priefer. The Vikings announced the punishment Friday as part of a summary of findings by outside lawyers hired in January to investigate Kluwes accusations, which included a claim he was released because of his gay-rights advocacy. The Vikings said Priefers ban could be reduced to two games at their discretion, provided he attends individualized antiharassment, diversity and sexual-orientation sensitivity training. Such education has been required for all Vikings employees, coaches and players on an annual basis for the past several years, the team said, and the improvements for the programs will be considered. Chris Madel, a former Justice Department attorney, and Eric Magnuson, a former chief justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court, from the Minneapolisbased law firm Robins, Kaplan, Ciresi and Miller, recently presented their report to the Vikings after interviewing 31 people and examining 121 gigabytes of data. Priefer was questioned three times. According to a 29-page analysis of the investigation by employment law consultants Littler Mendelson and Donald Prophete, commissioned by the Vikings and released Friday, Priefer initially denied making a remark Kluwe alleged about putting all the gays on an island and nuking it but later acknowledged he might have. Long snapper Cullen Loeffler told the investigators he heard the same comment Kluwe did, but that he assumed Priefer was joking. Also in the analysis of the investigation released by Mendelson and Prophete:Vikings officials were nearly unanimous in deciding Kluwes 2012 season was substandard, and the report said Priefer actually gave Kluwe a higher grade than any of the front-office evaluators. The Vikings have maintained the move to cut Kluwe was strictly football-based after they drafted Jeff Locke in the fifth round and Kluwe was due to make $1.45 million in the 2013 season at age 31.The investigators asked former Chicago general manager Jerry Angelo and former NFL punter Craig Hentrich to analyze Kluwes performance as well, and Hentrich gave Kluwe a C grade overall.The report also cited anecdotes from several interviewees about the penchant for off-color behavior by Kluwe, whose Internet and Twitter criticisms of various institutions and individuals have often contained obscene language. According to the report, Kluwe poked fun at Tom Kanavy, the strength and conditioning coach at the time, in a vulgar manner that made light of the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal at Penn State, where Kanavy attended and later worked. In a statement from the team, Priefer apologized to owners Mark Wilf and Zygi Wilf, the organization, the fans, his family, the LGBT community, Kluwe and anyone else that I offended with my insensitive remark. Added Priefer, who was hired by the Vikings in 2011: I regret what has occurred and what I said. I am extremely sorry, but I will learn from this situation and will work on educating others to create more tolerance and respect. Kluwe, however, said Friday he will still sue the team for discrimination, against his gayrights activism and agnostic beliefs, as well as defamation and wrongful interference of his contract. His attorney, Clayton Halunen, said the complaint will be filed in Hennepin County District Court as early as Monday, seeking $10 million in damages. They announced earlier this week their impending lawsuit and did not reach a settlement agreement with the team. Here we have this company, this Minnesota company whos getting $400 million out of taxpayers funds to build the stadium, and yet they are violating state law by engaging in discriminatory conduct, and that is unacceptable, Halunen said. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: We support our teams enforcing their workplace policies and commend the Wilfs for doing a thorough investigation and taking appropriate steps in response to the findings. The Wilf brothers, in a joint statement provided by the team, said Madel and Magnuson were in full control of the investigation at all times. They said theyre pleased Mendelson and Prophete concluded that there was no wrongdoing by the Vikings in releasing Kluwe. We are very disappointed with some of the findings contained within the report, the Wilfs said. As we have said in the past, we consistently strive to create and believe we have a supportive, respectful and accepting environment for our players, coaches and staff, and we strongly disassociate the club from the statement that Coach Priefer made. Coach Priefer is a good man, and we know that he deeply regrets the comment. We do not believe that this error in judgment should define him.

Kluwe intends to sue the team over allegations of anti-gay conduct by a coach, his lawyer said. Associated PressThe pace car holds the race cars in the in the pits Saturday as rain delays the start of the first IndyCar auto race of the weekend doubleheader in Toronto. Associated PressTORONTO IndyCars weekend doubleheader will be crammed into a single day because Saturdays race was called for rain. IndyCar has scheduled two 75-lap races today. The first one will have a rolling start at 10:30 a.m. and the second one is set for a standing start at 4:15 p.m. The order for the second race will be set by points, as of Saturday. Both races will be telecast on NBCSN. IndyCar officials originally had decided to make Saturdays race a 90-minute or 65-lap race once it started. But with rain falling into the night, officials decided to call the race. Obviously, we all wanted to get the race in today, but this was the correct call, series points leader Helio Castroneves said. We really tried to start the race, but it was clear that we were going to wreck a lot of cars. The PPG Chevy is very fast, so whenever we start the race we will be fine. Castroneves has the pole for the second race. Will Powers car wrecked during warm-up laps. The pace car also spun before officials decided to pull the cars from the track and red flag the race. Sebastien Bourdais won his first open-wheel pole since 2007 earlier in the day. Bourdais lap of 58.9479 seconds (107.179 mph) on the 1.7-mile, 11-turn temporary street circuit at Exhibition Place earned him his 32nd career pole. He won his first pole since Sept. 2, 2007, at Assen, Netherlands, driving for Champ Car. The course was affected by standing water on the backstretch. Tony Kanaan called the conditions completely unsafe, and Ryan Briscoe predicted carnage if the race went off during its scheduled green flag time. The last IndyCar Series race to be postponed by rain was in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2011. That race ran its first 15 laps on Sunday, May 1 and concluded with 40 laps on May 2. The last race to be postponed in full was at St. Petersburg on March 28, 2010. The race was run on March 29, 2010. IndyCar Series rained out, rescheduled

Introduced to me as Chets sister, I knew she had to be special. She had a brilliant, contagious smile that immediately made me understand what Run for the Money was all about. Since then, Dorothy and I have developed a bond that makes me feel like family. She and her friends are my inspiration to return to Tallahassee every year and take part in the run. Joining Dorothy Jean to cross the Suwannee River bridge has always been the highlight of the run for me. The anticipation of seeing her eager, welcoming smile as she patiently waits at the finish line on Saturday is an experience I always cherish. Dorothy Jean is the reason I run for the Key, and I am so blessed to have met her. Each time I see her, Im reminded of what is important in life: relationships, something I take for granted too often. Seeing the joy in Dorothys face inspires me to be more appreciative of life and grateful for Gods blessings in my life. Although her words are limited, her smile, her touch and her heart have affected me profoundly. I wish that everyone had a friend like mine.

China has sustained the highest annual economic growth rate of any major country. China and the U.S. vowed recently to improve their economic and security cooperation, saying they wouldnt let persistent differences over maritime claims or cyberhacking and currency hamper a relationship critical to global peace and prosperity. BOOK REVIEW One cant understand economic forces without taking into account politics, and you cant understand politics without recognizing the impact of the global economy. This skillfully written book by Michael Mandelbaum explains how global economic forces can be used by governments to promote growth. IN GLOBAL PROSPERITY, OPTIMISM FOR A FUTURE MADE BETTER BY TRADE The author, an administrator and faculty member at Johns Hopkins University, is a widely published writer on global affairs with a sure eye for the example that illustrates his point. He also served as an adviser to President Bill Clinton and presumably might be drawn back into public service in the future. His optimistic central conclusion is that global economic growth can expand rapidly over the next few decades because, firstly, the end of the Cold War means that there is less international military conflict between countries and, secondly, the benefits of international trade are a tide that will benefit all countries if proper policies are adopted. Like most economists, he believes in the global benefits of freer trade, a proposition first demonstrated by David Ricardo in 1819 and accepted today. But in the real world, as the author points out, there are tariffs and other impediments to the free exchange of goods and services, such as governmental currency and import restrictions. However, since the end of World War II, the United States has taken leadership in numerous Michael FrancisBOOK REVIEW See REVIEW/ Page C3

Page C2SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 County made good buyI was opposed to the purchase of Meadowcrest in the beginning. After months of speaking to our local officials about the cost and other things such as maintenance fees, we have now been able to negotiate a very good settlement for the citizens of Citrus County. My special thanks to Commissioner J.J. Kenney for all of his direct involvement in this purchase. I had always said that the price was too high and the maintenance fee had to be dropped. The savings of $700,050 from this sale plus the adoption of the roadway that will save us another $700 a month is what I call a very good deal. This sale has another underlining factor, and that is the sale of commercial reality property in Citrus County is on the rise. This is a great prize as to location in the real estate market for any commercial enterprise. Charles Knecht Sr. Dunnellon Wow. A reputable poll shows that the public believes Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Worse than Richard M. Nixon, driven from the presidency by Watergate? Much worse than Jimmy Carter, for decades the very symbol of the feckless chief executive? Loads worse than George W. Bush, still a lightning rod on the left and a symbol of disappointment on the right? Definitely. These startling poll results set loose the predictable reaction: A flurry of told-you-so nods on the right and a fusillade of this-tells-usnothing assertions on the left. For once, theyre both right. Obama is in trouble, no matter how carefully you peel through the Quinnipiac University poll that is causing such a firestorm. Theres almost no good news there, or anywhere else, for the president. Then again, this worst-president poll sheds little light. Almost every veteran observer of polls and presidents will likely attest to that. First, the trouble. Obama has it, in several dimensions. The public is split evenly 48 percent to 48 percent on whether the president is honest and trustworthy. Its split fairly evenly on whether he has strong leadership qualities, with a slight advantage to those who think he doesnt. The same for whether the president cares about people like you, with the same slight advantage this time to the president. Heres the big one. By a fairly substantial margin (45 percent to 38 percent), the public believes the nation would be better off had former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts been elected two years ago rather than Obama. No one can possibly argue that these figures are good news for the president, who is dealing with an immigration crisis at the Mexican border, a crumbling Iraq, an uncertain Afghanistan and an economy that hasnt bounced back fully. How Barack Obama, employing the idiom of hope and change, would love to run against an incumbent president with a portfolio like that! Now, the sobering bucket of cold water for the Obama critics. With the exception of three occupants of the White House (all war presidents), presidents tend to grow in stature as their administrations grow more distant in the rear-view mirror. The exceptions, according to Gallup figures in The New Republic, are three of the most beleaguered modern presidents: Lyndon B. Johnson (Vietnam), Richard M. Nixon (Vietnam) and George W. Bush (Iraq and Afghanistan). Foreign crisis doesnt assure that phenomenon, however. Jimmy Carter is rated substantially more favorably today than he was when he was in office, and he dealt with a hostage crisis in Iran that persisted for 444 days and, arguably, doomed his presidency. George H.W. Bush is also more favorably regarded today than he was while in office, and he was a war president (Desert Storm). The canary of caution in this political coal mine is the poll rating for Harry Truman, who left office with a 32 percent approval rating and a 56 percent disapproval rating, according to Gallup. That represented, by the way, a substantial improvement from his ratings (23 percent approval, 67 percent disapproval) a year earlier, just before Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee upset Truman in the New Hampshire primary and prompted the presidents withdrawal from the 1952 race. But the country, which was, as the phrase went, mild about Harry and had concluded, as another aphorism of the time put it, that to err was Truman, changed its mind, albeit slowly. One of the signposts along that journey was Merle Millers Plain Speaking, an oral biography of the 33rd president that emphasized his down-home attitudes and attributes, a marked contrast at the time of its publication (1974) with Nixon, who resigned that year. Indeed, it is instructive to realize that Plain Speaking reached booksellers shelves just a year after Arthur M. Schlesinger published his The Imperial Presidency, aimed in large measure at Nixon. Trumans revival was sealed less than two decades later when the historian David McCullough published his Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of the man whose hometown of Independence seemed to be a description of his character. Suddenly Truman, regarded as an accidental president who was also accident-prone, took on a heroic aura, one that persists to this day. In the Quinnipiac survey, zero percent of Americans singled out Truman as the worst of the last dozen presidents. That figure applies to Republicans as well as Democrats. Now have a look at George H.W. Bush, who was soundly defeated for re-election only 22 years ago, dismissed as a fusty symbol of the past and considered out of touch with the public, a hopeless elitist with an awkward bedside manner. This summer, Bush, at 90 a beloved figure and an unassailable symbol of American prudence, wisdom and grace, was considered the worst president by only 2 percent. The same phenomenon applies to the man who defeated him in 1992, Bill Clinton, who left office with unusually high ratings for a president who had been impeached. Eight years ago, 16 percent of those surveyed considered him the worst president. This summer, only 3 percent do. One final example: Dwight Eisenhower, regarded as a duffer at his departure from the White House so much so that John F. Kennedy, who tried to make vigor a qualification for leadership, used Eisenhower as a foil. Today, only 1 percent of Americans surveyed consider Eisenhower the worst president. The revival of his reputation was begun by Fred I. Greensteins The HiddenHand Presidency and by the realization that, aside from wrapping up the Korean War, which he inherited, he sent few Americans into combat during his two terms in office. The message here is not that Obama isnt troubled as he rounds the clubhouse curve and heads toward his seventh year in office. It is that Americans judgments arent final. I knew from the bitter experience of all public men from Washington on down, that democracies are fickle and heartless, for democracy is a harsh employer, said the 31st president after he was defeated for re-election. Herbert Hoover, who lost the 1932 presidential race to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, is still waiting for redemption. But most of his successors have won it. So, too, might George W. Bush and Barack Obama both hired twice by the countrys harshest employers.David M. Shribman is the executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Citrus County School Board members, by a 5-0 vote, recently approved an interlocal agreement with the sheriffs office to provide employees a second location to receive medical services. The deal would also provide a second location for school district employees to meet their preventative care needs and an opportunity for the sheriffs office employees to join the program. Savings to taxpayers occur in several ways. The school board voted in 2009 to become self-insured. From that initial vote grew the idea of a clinic where employees could go to receive preventative care. Study upon study show the United States ranks low in the effectiveness of its health care system, and much of that can be attributed to the low value it places on providing affordable preventative care. According to the Center for Disease Control, more than 75 percent of health care costs in the United States are spent on chronic disease. Of that, 70 percent is largely preventable. Smoking, obesity and drinking can lead to heart disease, cancer and stroke the top three causes of death in the United States. All of these are preventable with education, monitoring and other programs designed to help people who might struggle to control their bad habits. The clinics provide lowcost, convenient opportunities for employees to receive preventative care and education. Adding the sheriffs office to the mix only increases the savings because it provides more government employees the opportunity to take advantage of the low-cost preventative care opportunities. As the idea grows and proves successful, it would be good to have more local government agencies follow suit with other cost-sharing opportunities that span multiple agencies.

Thanks, guy.Defending my leftsWhat am I supposed to do when I have to make a left-hand turn? Make it from the righthand lane? And, yes, I do go over into the left-hand lane before I get to that turn because if I wait until I get right next to it, the traffic in that lane is so heavy, then I cant get over into it unless I make a complete stop and wait for an opening in that lane. Of course, then the cars behind me in the right-hand lane are going to run up my rear-end. Or maybe we shouldnt be allowed to make any left-hand turns. We should only be allowed to go straight or make righthand turns. Yeah, real smart.Encore, encoreGreat show. Just saw Little Shop of Horrors at the Art Center Theater. All the actors were terrific.

international conferences pushing for lower tariffs. As a result, today tariffs are much lower than they were, and that has, as Ricardo predicted, led to more trade and an improvement in global economic production. However, as the author observes, many of the countries that have benefited the most from the rising trade dont realize how much their countries benefit from lower tariffs. That is the broad picture, but individual states still want tariffs on goods that would undersell their domestically produced products. Of course, they want lower foreign tariffs against goods they produce and, of course, lower tariffs abroad on whatever goods or services they export. All countries have lobbyists trying to get protection for various products. Mandebaum is a realist who is well aware of the cobweb of exceptions that continue to exist restricting the easy movement of goods and services, but he predicts that trade barriers will continue to be lowered as more and more countries recognize that this is in their national interest. Meanwhile, there remain some obvious and muchcriticized obstacles, such as Chinas undervaluation of the yen to make itself more competitive. The author also offers an illuminating look at the pros and cons of the euro and how this influences Americas growth rate. To me, the best section of the book analyzes the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China). He argues that these states have the potential to prosper and hence have a positive impact on the living standards in the rest of the world. All of those countries have been showing good economic growth rates which are, he argues, of benefit to us all because they create more markets for our goods. But each of the BRIC nations has its own problems and advantages. Mandelbaum points out Russia has important energy reserves, but that it has not made many of the changes needed for economic growth in the other sectors, in part due to the remnants of Soviet ideology and its anticapitalist tendencies. Brazil has experienced recent economic growth due to the wise policies of President Fernando Henrique Cardoso, who led the country from 1995 to 2003. He was a leftist who had the foresight to help Brazilian industries prosper while ending inflation. But Brazils problem since 2002, Mandelbaum says, is the belief that the government can increasingly provide services and welfare. Raising taxes at this point can hurt the internal flow of foreign and domestic investment. India has boomed in part by providing services in information technology. It has a large pool of welleducated young people, many of who are servicing American companies. Indian politics started out well after independence, but have never been able to help the poorest half of the population, which drags national development down. Furthermore, the memories of British colonialism have left an unfortunate residue of resistance to foreign investment. Add to this the caste system which impedes upward mobility and various other impediments which must be addressed. As for China, it has sustained the highest annual economic growth rate of any major country almost 10 percent which is the best performance in recorded history, Mandelbaum writes. However, the government has never recognized the concept of property rights, particularly in the rural areas. Who wants to invest in farming if the government can take the land away from you? The government has also been slow to give the majority of its citizens personal rights or opportunities. As we know, China is the worlds largest air polluter, which makes any global agreement on pollution difficult. India has the same unwillingness to cooperate on attempts to write a global set of standards on pollution. Economics is often referred to as the dismal science because it is so often pessimistic and sometimestoo dense or depressingfor the normal reader.

This was the one Friday afternoon of the year where I had actually caught up with all the work around the office, and I agreed to drive home and pick up the cage. I was relaxed and in a good mood that the grandkids were coming to visit for the weekend. As I drove back to Crystal River to fetch the cage, I stopped at the four-way intersection at Cutler Spur and Fifth. There was another car arriving at the intersection at the same time, and we both looked at each other. I was to her right and she waved me on. I drove forward for the very last time in my favorite car ever. As I pulled through the intersection, a young woman in a pickup truck using a cell phone blasted through the four-way stop without ever touching the brake. She ran right through the front end of my vehicle and bounced me off a pole. She continued over a rock wall and put half her truck onto the front lawn of a home. Just like that, your life changes. Fortunately, neither of our lives ended. Lots of folks are not that lucky. We both walked away from the accident, but I did end up spending the night in the emergency room with a knee that got smashed. My favorite car of all time ended up being a total loss and I had to spend a couple of weeks in a rental before I could arrange another. When we got back that evening from the emergency room, it was late and the weekend was already looking a lot less relaxing than it had a few hours before. I hobbled up the stairs and had a look out on the front porch. There sat a raccoon. Im not sure raccoons can laugh, but this little guy sure looked like he had a smile on his face. Mike Wright did eventually get the raccoon cage and managed to capture five of his night visitors. Theyve been relocated to the state forest. At the Mulligan household we have called a temporary truce with raccoons. If they will stop smiling, I will stop trying to relocate them.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

Slip-sliding all the way back to the 1970s Aconcept that has become very popular with the advent of Facebook is Throwback Thursday. On Thursdays, some folks make it a point to post photographs taken years ago. Today, Ive decided to do a Slip-sliding Away Sunday and take us all back to the 1970s. Have you ever wondered who was responsible for the s? I know many of you readers werent even born yet and others probably really loved the s, but when I mentally flash back to that decade, the vision that usually comes to my mind is a huge question mark. Who was responsible for double-knit, polyester clothing? More specifically, who designed and decreed as fashionable double-knit polyester leisure suits? Whose idea were dresses or skirts so short that they bottomed out (pun intended) some 12 to 18 inches below the waistline? Who decided platform shoes were in? Who selected colors for cars, especially the burnt orange so popular for Volkswagen minivans and AMC Gremlins? Think about the hairstyles. Hair, hair everywhere, on males and females alike. Who invented disco? Our son was just a toddler during the later part of the disco decade. On one special occasion his mother and I dressed him fashionably in a little plaid doubleknit polyester leisure suit accented by a yellow shirt with a phenomenally big collar. Then we committed the ultimate injustice: We had a photographer take his picture. His sisters still refer to him as disco baby when they see that photo. It wasnt his fault, he was just a baby and didnt know any better, but he has taken grief about the picture for most of his life. Who was responsible for the concept of free love? Nothing comes without a price. Many people paid and some are still paying dearly for what was perceived as being free during the 1970s. Think about who was running the country. The presidents during the 1970s were Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. I can still find qualities in all of these men to admire, but I can also remember Watergate and the double digits (inflation, interest rates and unemployment) which were the hallmark of the Carter administration. But, I confess: The s werent all bad. Two of our three children were born during the decade, Becky in 1970 and Fred 3 in 1977. And, yes, I have a pretty good idea who was responsible for that! Some time ago, I saw an obituary where it was noted that the decedent had served as a member of the House of Representatives for 12 years during the 1970s. I chuckled at the obvious error no one could have served 12 years during the 1970s maybe the s and s, or even the s and s, but not during the 1970s alone. Then it dawned on me that perhaps the writer has the same recollections I have, maybe he remembers the decade with the same absence of affection that I do, and maybe it seemed to him as though it lasted for 12 or 15 or maybe even 20 years!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.

REVIEWContinued from Page C1 RUNContinued from Page C1 WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Letter toTHE EDITOR Inform yourself, then voteI have lived in Citrus County for some time now; I came from the midwest. Citrus County looked like the best place to live as I am getting older (77) and, of course, I was right. I served on the county commission in Kansas, the City Planning Board and the County Planning Board, so I stayed interested in county government and what was going on. I am truly amazed at the money this commission collects and spends. Calvin Coolidge said Nothing is easier than the expenditure of public money. It doesnt appear to belong to anyone. The temptation is overwhelming to bestow it on somebody. It appears four of our county commissioners think he made that a law. They raised our taxes and now they want more. They are now talking about new ways to raise our taxes again. Is more sales tax next, or will they put up toll booths at every entrance into the county? I think it is time for voters to put a stop to this taxing and spending! The board just bought a building for over $3 million. As I understand it, the county only needs 25,000 to 30,000 square feet of space and this building has 75,000. It appears they have 50,000 square feet too much. The upkeep and tax revenue lost will be a huge number. No wonder they are talking about more sales taxes. The county just does not need that much building! This election, we voters should do the best we can to break up the spending three. Please go to the polls and vote! We do not need any more taxing and spending. This time around, spend a little time looking into those who are running. Is he/she truthful? Does he/she have a good grip of what is going on? It feels good to pick a winner who can fill those chairs, will save us money and spend wisely. Get yourself up to speed. It is your tax money they are spending. Vote with knowledge!George Sell Hernando

In the spring of 2013, the United Way of Citrus County launched a new way of assisting those in need in our community. Under the leadership of our Board of Directors, local leaders and our staff, a vision for permanent change has become a reality over the past 18 months. We call our new platform The Prosperity Center. This is not a new a building and we wont begin a capital campaign for this program. This concept is truly defined as a resource for hope. Many folks in our community struggle financially. These working families really dont even live paycheck-to-paycheck. As soon as they do receive their weekly wages, they are quickly expended on food, gas, childcare, rent and utilities. What they need most is a true living wage that can support their families, and have some funds left over to begin saving. The problem is that many of these individuals lack the education or professional certification to obtain a better job. Thats where The Prosperity Center steps in to help. We have formed strong partnerships with Withlacoochee Technical Institute (WTI) and the College of Central Florida (CF) to assist their students in successfully reaching their educational goals, which will result in family-sustaining income. Both of these schools of higher learning understand that we want to invest in individuals who are determined to accomplish results. WTI and CF refer students to us at the beginning of each semester. These are students who exemplify a willingness to complete their programs, but also face some barriers that need to be mitigated. The United Way interviews each candidate to understand what those barriers might be and we develop a plan to resourcefully solve those problems. Some of the most common obstacles are the cost of transportation, cost of childcare, rent and utilities, and not having enough food in the home. We step in with gas cards or bus passes. We reach out to our network of childcare providers like the YMCA, Early Learning Coalition or the Boys & Girls Clubs to obtain high-quality, safe learning environments for the children of our students. We make sure funding is available to assist with monthly bills. A small investment now will pay dividends in the future for these individuals and their families. Just by earning a GED, an individuals annual income increases by $6,500. A bachelors degree can increase the annual income by nearly $15,000. Another obstacle our students and their families face is strained family relationships. Financial hardships can cause stress at home. We have partnered with CASA and The Centers to bring our students free relationship training and coaching. CASA provides eight weeks of valuable education on how to build and maintain healthy relationships not just at home, but also in the workplace or any other environment. The Centers offers an eight-week curriculum on parenting. All of this adds so much to the students overall ability to succeed. Allow me to share a brief story about one of our most determined students, DJ. DJ is 24 years old and dropped out of high school six or seven years ago. When we first met him, he was enrolled in the GED program at WTI. He doesnt own a car and lives with his parents in Lecanto. For the first two months of school, he walked every day. Its 11 miles each way, 22 miles round trip. This was in January and February of this year. He said it took him about four hours to walk 11 miles. He said sometimes he would sleep in the woods. But through all of this, he never missed one day of school. Our first order of business was to get him a bike. He said the bike cut his travel time by three hours each way and made such a huge difference. DJ graduated in May with his GED and was given a full scholarship to CF, where he begins classes next month. He is now working at a local bike shop. Another great success is a woman named Kelly. Kelly earned her GED last year and went straight into a three-month medical program. She is now working full-time at local medical facility and recently reported to us that she is completely off of food stamps, something she never thought would have been possible. As the old saying goes, most folks just need a leg up, not a handout. This program invests community dollars into hardworking, dedicated individuals and results in real, lasting change for their futures. When you contribute to United Way, you are helping local people, right here in Citrus County, to improve their lives. It costs approximately $1,500 to $2,000 for each student to achieve their desired success. Our favorite part is seeing the exponential dividends that our community receives. Join us today as we change lives in Citrus County. God bless and Live United.Amy Meek is the president and CEO of United Way of Citrus County.C4SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARY July 28 We Care Food Pantry Golfers Against Hunger Raffle Drawing Raffle Ticket: $10 per ticket Contact Phone: 422-2939 or 697-1783 August 1 3 West Citrus Elks First Scallop Jam 7890 S.

I have a fire hydrant in my front yard and I am so glad it is there surrounded by my flowers. God forbid if you have a fire; where is the water coming from? Think about it. So it is for your own safety. Take care. Get rid of EDC, TDCUnbelie vable w hats going on in our county government. They want to raise the bed tax. They want to hire another administrator to just shadow the present administrator only $25,000 a year, plus benefits. Why dont we eliminate the TDC and the EDC completely? When has this county commission ever cut the size of the government? Why are we spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to attract more people? We have plenty of people. Word of mouth is the best advertising. Eliminate those two agencies.Wheres the repairs?After I wrote 15 letters to the county commissioners, which I never got a reply, and about 10 to the Chronicle, which two were printed, I see that more and more people are starting to jump on this road repair situation. And Id like to point out that I have never, ever seen road repair trucks in Citrus County in the last year. And if all the money that comes in for gas tax is supposed to go to road repair, whats happening to it? Any chance of me getting a refund on mine because they sure aint spending it on me.OKd at least onceMy comment is in reference to the stub-out that has been irritating everybody for a while now. I wonder, having done a lot of survey work in my life, who would not have believed that that stub was originally surveyed into that property for exactly what that developer wants? And guess what? The county approved it at that time. Now the wisdom is that they are going to disallow this to happen.Dessert desertWe need a restaurant out (State Road) 44 East. Do you know that theres only one restaurant between the Wildwood truck stop and Inverness on (S.R.) 44? It would be a great location for it.Geography lessonCitrus County does have a Dunnellon area. I am calling in response to a citizen who said that Dunnellon is part of Citrus Springs. I have to disagree with that. There is a part of Citrus County that has a title called Dunnellon. It is not part of the Citrus Springs area. Citrus Springs is a subdivision inside Citrus County. Dunnellon is a postal area, 34434, identified inside Citrus County as a sector of Citrus County. We are not part of the Citrus Springs Association at all.Book itThe used book store is Bookaneers. Its 33 S. Melbourne St., Beverly Hills. The telephone number is 352-270-8891. Its a great store and she could use the help and other people could use knowing where it is.ZIP itThis is in reference to the person complaining about the crimes not being printed for Citrus Springs because its considered Dunnellon, but he knows the streets so he knows crimes not being printed. You live in Citrus Springs but you have a Dunnellon post office ZIP code. Thats why youre considered Dunnellon because of your ZIP code. Does it really make a difference about them posting Citrus Springs for crime if you know the street? If that person knows the street, what is the big deal if they print Citrus Springs or Dunnellon? It doesnt make a difference if you know the streets.Missing home cookingDoes anyone know of anyone or a company in the area of Inverness that makes home-cooked meals and delivers them? I sure would appreciate some help. SOUND OFFCALL563-0579

Section DSUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bruce WilliamsSMART MONEY DEAR BRUCE: How do you know how much liability insurance you should carry on a vehicle? I am 39 years old and will be getting my first vehicle. Reader DEAR READER: I am certain many people will disagree with this information: Most people would think $100,000 to $200,000 is adequate, but in my opinion, its not even close. The primary policy ought to be $250,000, plus at least an extra $2 million on top of that first quarter of a million. The additional $2 million will be relatively inexpensive and it would give you substantial coverage, which is just barely enough. Frankly, I carry considerably more than that. You should have enough coverage in case someone sues you for a million and is successful. Without that additional insurance, you will be paying for the rest of your life or having to declare bankruptcy if you were adjudicated to be at fault. Trust me on this one. DEAR BRUCE: Do you have to be a certain age to check on your credit report? My daughter is 19 years old and already has some debt. She asked me if she has to be 21 to check. Brenda DEAR BRENDA: You dont have to be 21 years old to check your credit report. You can check at any age, assuming there is information to be checked. There are many services that will give you your credit report without cost, and you are allowed one free report from each of the major reporting agencies each year. A quick search on the Internet will tell you how to get this information. DEAR BRUCE: My 18year-old son recently started his first job.

Vote for Your Hero Up To Three Times A Day Thru Tuesday., July 29, 2014. www.chronicleonline.com/healthcareheroesATTENTION CITRUS COUNTYThe Nominations Are In Now its Your Turn To Choose the Readers Choice Winner Once the purpose and mission of a nonprofit is clearly defined, important information must be communicated about the organization to appropriate governmental agencies. There are six essential forms, five different agencies and a total of 50 to 70 pages of information or more, including supplemental materials. These filings give legal life and provide multiple benefits to the organization. Best nonprofit management practices must then be followed for the life of the organization. Avoiding any activity that may jeopardize legal status or state and federal tax exemptions is as important as fulfilling the mission. There will be certain activities that must be restricted and others absolutely avoided. Ongoing compliance falls clearly on the shoulders of the officers, directors and staff. If audited, the IRS will perform operational tests to determine compliance. If noncompliance is discovered, the risk of losing the tax exemptions is real, as is possible involuntary dissolution.INUREMENT AND PRIVATE BENEFITSIf goods, services or monetary benefits are provided to an officer, director or employee that are more than incidental, the transaction could jeopardize the tax exemption. The IRS is categorically clear that net earnings of a nonprofit cannot inure or benefit an insider. An insider is someone with a personal interest in the organization, such as an officer, director or key employee. Payment of unreasonably high income to an employee is considered inurement. These restrictions are in place to ensure that a taxexempt organization will serve a public/community interest and not private interests normally allowable in a for-profit corporation. Inurement is codified into the legal system that governs the nonprofit industry.EXCESS BENEFIT TRANSACTIONSAll 501(c)(3) nonprofits are considered public charities by IRS. The use of the term charity/charitable organization by IRS, means the organization provides benefits to the community/public in which it resides. When a 501(c)(3) nonprofit provides an economic benefit to any person who can exercise significant influence over the nonprofit operations, the action is considered an excess benefit transaction. Goods and services beyond market value are considered excessive. Excise taxes can be charged to the recipient of the benefits over and above actual value. When a 501(c)(3) realizes an excess benefit exists, management is obligated to divulge this fact to the IRS and a tax adviser should be consulted. The IRS has a process by which this situation can be resolved.POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS AND INTERVENTIONS501(c)(3) Nonprofits are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating or intervening in any political campaign irrespective of the candidate or political party seeking public office. Monetary contributions to, or public comments, endorsements and criticisms about parties or candidates, when discovered, are subject to revocation of the tax exemption. Additionally, imposition of excise taxes and strong potential for involuntary dissolution can follow. Statements or comments in support of or against candidates or parties seeking public office are the most common infraction of the political/intervention rules. BEST PRACTICES MUST PREVAILBest practices strongly suggest keeping politics out of the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Negative or positive statements about candidates or political parties does not belong inside the nonprofit boardroom, at committee meetings or at any kind of public gathering. This includes education programs, seminars, conferences and annual meetings. Avoid any comment that can be perceived as political at all costs.ALLOWABLE NONPARTISAN ACTIVITIESNot every form of political activity of a 501(c)(3) is forbidden. Conducting voter educational programs presented in a strictly nonpartisan manner is allowed. Programs that encourage people to engage in the electoral process in a nonpartisan forum are acceptable. Drives to help with voter registration absent political bias are acceptable. The basic criterion to all of the above is the nonpartisan communication of all that is said, written or otherwise directed to an audience. A detailed review of certain situations in this most important activity will follow in the next Nonprofit Briefs column on Aug. 17.Dr. Frederick J.

SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014Chamber Connection 28 N.W. U.S. 19, Crystal River, FL 34428 352-795-3149 106 W. Main St., Inverness, FL 34450 352-726-2801D3 Promotional information provided by the Citrus Chamber of Commerce. In the Aug. 26 Primary Election, there will be a universal primary in the race for County Commissioner District 4. Florida is a closed primary state, which means voters are limited to choosing candidates in their own party in the primary election. However, in the race for County Commissioner District 4 between Scott Carnahan and Winn Webb, both of the candidates are in the Republican Party. Therefore, the race becomes a universal primary and will be decided in the primary election. The race for County Commissioner District 4 will be on all ballots, allowing all voters to vote in this election. This differs from school board and judicial races because these races are nonpartisan races governed by F.S. 105. Nonpartisan races appear on the primary election ballot. If there are more than two candidates, the winner must receive 50 percent plus 1 vote or the race will appear on the general election ballot as a race between the top two candidates from the primary election. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office at 352-341-6740. A message from Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill Amy Kingery, public relations coordinator at Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, is the first member of the Florida Public Relations Associations Nature Coast chapter to achieve the certified public relations counselor credential.

This group power washed and painted the outside of the building, replaced lights, repaired rotted playground equipment, and donated picnic tables.

BUSINESS DIGEST a better-earning investment? B.C. DEAR B.C.: You son is starting off on the right foot. At $50 a week, he can certainly save $500 in 10 weeks. At that point, he should consider investing in the stock market. He cant buy large quantities, but he could buy an initial stake of $500 and add to it every month with $200 in savings. If he establishes the appropriate habits now, he will be very successful in life. I think he must have you to thank for his good judgment. DEAR BRUCE: Does it really make a difference if you earn a high school diploma versus getting a GED? Harold DEAR HAROLD: They are both valuable tools, but given the choice between the diploma and the GED, I would go for the diploma every time. DEAR BRUCE: When I purchased my house, this area was the most desirable place to live. After 15 years, the neighborhood is going down the drain because of drug dealers, robbery, etc. I cant afford to move since I am on a fixed income. I have made many phone calls to the code enforcement department to try to get help, but they want me to give them my name and address in order to make a complaint about my neighbors. I am not going to do that. What other options do I have? Reader DEAR READER: I sympathize with the house market going down the drain. You say you cant afford to move because you are living on a fixed income, but it may very well be that you ought to think about selling this house and renting in a better neighborhood, perhaps a small apartment. Regarding code enforcement, there are not many other options, but if you are in a modestly sized community, I would consider calling your city councilman or the mayors office and making a complaint directly to them, explaining the situation. They are there to help you, and they should.Send questions to bruce@brucewilliams.com. Questions of general interest will be answered in future columns. or deadlines? Starting pay at $37 an hour? Wow! Really? Uh no, no and NO. If you have to sign up for anything, become a member or provide personal information (i.e. submit to a credit check) just to apply, dont apply. Do not send anyone money up front ever for any reason. Oh, they say you need to pay for special software to get started with medical billing? No you dont. They say you have the job but just need to register for a masters degree program that theyll help you with? I dont think so. Cant pass up an opportunity to work overseas, but need to cover the costs for a visa first? Nope. Of course, you may run across a perfectly legitimate enterprise. Many companies, for example, outsource call centers and the like. I recently made airline reservations with a ticket agent who was in her kitchen (and she was terrific). But fake or misleading employment opportunities are posted on legitimate job boards all the time. I easily found scores. These not only target stay-at-home moms and those interested in supplemental income, but with the average length of unemployment in Florida hovering around 48 weeks, so-called opportunities may start to look mighty enticing to anyone who has been out of work for an extended period of time. There are many variations, but here are some basic scams to watch out for:RESHIPPING They send you stuff. One posting listed golden and silver wares, watches, electronic appliances and collectibles. Another described it as customers correspondence in remote corners of the world, which you then repackage and ship via UPS, FedEx, USPS. Job titles run the gamut from logistics manager to transportation operations manager to worldwide shipping supplier to just plain agent. Whatever they call you, youll probably be guilty of receiving and shipping stolen goods then the only job youll have is trying to stay out of prison. CHECK CASHING Youll hire on as a mystery or secret shopper and your mission will be to go undercover as a pretend customer at a local bank and describe your experience. Youll receive checks, money orders or wire deposits that youll be asked to cash. Youll fill out official-looking surveys and get to keep a percentage of the cash withdrawal as your payment, sending most back to the scammers. No surprise, the check/money order/wire transfers are fraudulent, and guess wholl end up holding the (empty) money bag? You will be held liable for the lost money; if youre lucky, thats all youll have to pay (see above reference to prison time). So what do you do to protect yourself and to ensure that the jobs you apply for are legit? First, and it should go without saying: buyer beware. It may take a little sleuthing, but do your due diligence. Google the company if it seems fishy and sign up for the Better Business Bureaus scam alerts; in the last month alone, the BBB of Central Florida issued six alerts, including warnings about secret shopper and work-fromhome scams. Other places to go for tips and resources include Employ Florida at employflorida.com and the Federal Trade Commission at consumer.ftc.gov. Second, dont rely exclusively on Internet job searches. When you work with one of our placement specialists, you benefit from the effort and expertise of a real, live person who is not going to send you down a rabbit hole. Staff-assisted services, which are available to you at no charge, include career counseling, rsum building, help with interview and other employability skills, interest and skills assessments and job-search assistance and referral. Simply throwing your resume up on a job board and hoping for the best is not a successful job-search strategy. Plus, doing so can also leave you vulnerable to those trolling through a sea of eager job seekers hoping to hook one; dont take the bait. If your job search feels overwhelming, and you need a good, trustworthy place to start, give us a call at 352-2493278 to set up an appointment for staff-assisted services or stop by our one-stop career center at 683 S.

MORGAN BROWN/For the ChronicleStanding in front one of his own creations, woodworker Mark Arnett describes how he rents out his wedding arch and then carefully hauls the piece to its temporary destination. look at a tree stump and see a dining room table. His talent does not lie solely in turning a washedup piece of wood into a bench or wedding arch, but in understanding that there are some pieces that are best left untouched and to be placed in such a way that their natural beauty shines. His workshop, located on the what remains of the old K.C. Crumps property in Homosassa, is a treasure trove of collected driftwood and old tree stumps, some pieces dating back to a time when the cities within Citrus County were a part of the then-larger Hernando County and the cedar found here was an economic engine. Arnett builds his furniture by himself, creating mirrors, tables, chairs, benches, arches and countless other custom designs. No two pieces are identical, and depending on the pieces size and complexity, can cost roughly anywhere from $400 to $1,500 or more. Though woodworking can have its challenges and risks, its nothing that Arnett cant handle. I dont really hit too many obstacles building, he said. If its not coming together, sometimes you have to back off and try something different. Contact Mark Arnett at arnettart@hotmail.com, 352628-6747 or 352-220-2651.

CITRUS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD INVERNESS, FLORIDA BY:Sandra Himmel, Superintendent of Schools Published in theCITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE: July 20, 27 & August 3, 2014 329-0720 SUCRN STATE OF FLORIDA NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to Citrus County School Board, Alan Burcaw, Director Facilities and Construction, 1007 West Main Street, Inverness, Florida 34450 to replace an existing facility with the construction and operation a new 0.015 mgd domestic wastewater treatment facility which would land apply 0.015 mgd of reclaimed water to a rapid infiltration basin system. The facility will be located at latitude 28N, longitude 82 W, on 8457 E Marvin St., Floral City, Florida 34436-4725 in Citrus County. The Department has assigned permit file number FLA011839-005-DW4P/RA to the proposed project. The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Departments Southwest District Office, 13051 N Telecom Pkwy, Temple Terrace, Florida 33637-0926, at phone number (813)632-7600. The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Departments decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Departments proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Departments proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Departments proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. Published in theCITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE: July 20, 2014 Copies of the Agenda will be available in the Administration office. Any person wishing to appeal any decision made by this Board, with respect to any matter considered at such meeting, must ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record must include the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.

Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home construction fell in June to the slowest pace in nine months, a setback to hopes that housing is regaining momentum and will boost economic growth this year. Construction fell 9.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 893,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That was the slowest pace since last September and followed a 7.3 percent drop in May, a decline even worse than initially reported. Applications for building permits, considered a good indicator of future activity, were also down in June, dropping 4.2 percent to a rate of 963,000 after a 5.1 percent decline in May. The worse-than-expected June performance reflected a big drop in activity in the South, where construction plunged by 29.6 percent last month. Analysts, however, said that the June decline in construction may have been influenced by temporary factors such as heavy rain in parts of the South which could have held back housing starts in that region. Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO, said it was too soon to conclude that the housing recovery has stalled. After all, job growth continues, mortgage rates are near Davis continues to soar at ERAERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production level achieved by one of its agents in 2014.

waking up in a puddle of water, said Weiss, 47, the director of news and media services at Augsburg College. As I got older, I just wanted to be more comfortable. She stumbled across Taylors ad on Craigslist just hours, it turned out, after he had first posted it his first attempt to sell a Vistabule. I told him I wanted to hire him to build me one, she said. I think he thought I was crazy. What sold Weiss, who has a history in sailing, was the nautical theme, the relative roominess and, of course, that huge picture window an element perhaps unique to the Vistabule. As for the cost: If you give a rip about aesthetics, its absolutely worth it, she said. You get something so beautiful. If you want to sleep in a Clorox bottle, go buy a fiberglass one. Weiss enthusiasm for her camper is unequivocal. From the ease of trailering and backing into campsites the large windows allow the driver to see right through the thing to the functionality of the kitchenette, or galley, she said its become an integral part of summer travel for her, her fiance and their dogs. I will hook it up Friday evening or Saturday morning, and if the sweetheart cant go with me, I grab a dog and just go, she said. After-dark setup involves little hassle, unlike a tent, and the purchase has allowed her to start working through a bucket list of state parks within a couple hours drive of the Twin Cities. Family events and weather have cramped her camping so far this season, but she said its often substituted for a motel or fold-out sofa at family functions, affording her solitude and a view. And she draws a crowd. You cant be an introvert and own one because everyone wants to talk to you about it. Taylor said hes constantly tinkering with improving the design and functionality. Door and window latches, for example, are custom made. I didnt design it for off-the-shelf parts, he said. That would limit me too much. As for the basic shape, the curves and the feel, he believes he accomplished what he set out to do. It was difficult to come up with something unique, but I think Ive done it. made out of silver. I am thinking it is from the 1800s. I need all the help I can get! The first two hallmarks read TE, and I cannot really make out the other three. R.T., Internet Dear R.T.: You have an interesting hunting knife. The impressed words made in Scotland on the metal indicate it was made in the 20th century no earlier. I cannot make out the two letters TE or the other impressed marks. Take it out in the bright light and look closely with a magnifier. If the decorative metal portions are silver, one of the marks will indicate such. Let me know what you discover and I will finish the story. Dear John: Here is a photo of an Acme Brewing Company Prohibition-era sign for American Queen Beer. This is a cardboard poster. The actual beer label is applied. Can you tell anything about this and is it original? K., Internet Dear K.: I have no reason to doubt your advertising poster is genuine. The Acme Brewing Company located in Macon, Georgia, was in business from 1893 to 1916. The words at the top of the poster, Are you Wet or Dry? could have a connection to Prohibition, but I am not sure. I can see the poster could use some restoration. I suggest you contact William Morford at Morford Auctions; he specializes in high-quality advertising memorabilia. The website is www. morfauction.com. The phone number is 315-6627625. Good luck. Dear John: A while back in your column someone asked about getting a broken porcelain figurine repaired. I wish I had made a note about the restorer, but I did not. Now I need their services because of an unfortunate accident. My son and his wife were here for a visit with the kids. While playing, one of them bumped into my china cabinet and one of my porcelain figurines toppled over and the arm was broken into three pieces. Can this badly broken arm be restored? F.C., InternetDear F.C.: Yes, the arm can be restored. In fact, after proper restoration, you will not be able to see where the arm was broken. Leak Enterprises is located in Belleview.

Standard Pacific Homes is building and selling these homes in 27 of its 190 developments from Florida to California and is believed to be the first to offer a pet suite as an option in every one. The most lavish suite is a 170-square-foot pet paradise with a step-in wash station, handheld sprayer and leash lead; tile walls and floors; a designated drying area with a commercial sized pet dryer; a water station; automated feeders; a large bunk-style bed; cabinets for toys, treats and food; a stackable washer and dryer; a French door that opens to a puppy run; and a flat-screen television set. Standard Pacific, based in Irvine, decided to offer pet suites after conducting livability studies with homeowners.

JENNYSTALETOVICH Miami HeraldCORAL GABLES Giselle Hosein peers into the dark sky above a manicured fairway on the Coral Gables Granada Golf Course, trying hard to see what she can so far only hear: an elusive Florida bonneted bat, among the rarest in the world. It took me three or four months before I was actually able to see one, she said. The bats, which number fewer than a thousand, have found an unlikely foraging ground at the ninehole course. By day, the former orchard draws mostly duffers and retirees, or joggers cruising the perimeter past ritzy villas and condos lawyer Roy Black and wife Lea, of Real Housewives fame, live in one walled compound. Former Gov. Jeb Bush once occupied a condo. But at night, the bats come out to play, feasting on insects to a steady rhythm of trills and tweets. When it gets dark, you hear them right next to you, but you cant see them, said Hosein, a research assistant to a Florida International University biologist and bat expert. Its like your mind is playing tricks on you. Then she sees it: a dark outline soaring against white clouds dotting the midnight blue sky. Just as quickly, the bat vanishes. Yet its calls constant chirps to get its bearings mingled with chatter that could signal mates, pups or predators fill the muggy night like a mockingbird on fast forward. Over the next hour, Hosein spots more bats, or the same one, a dozen times. A sound meter tucked into a ficus tree on the course typically records a thousand calls each night. The bats, which have the smallest range of any bat species in the western hemisphere, are one of the New Worlds most vulnerable, found mostly around South Florida. In November, U.S. wildlife managers added them to the endangered species list, citing both habitat loss and annual mosquito-spraying as critical threats. The government and biologists are now trying to determine where the bats live and whether their habitat can be protected. But the bats arent cooperating. We literally know nothing about them. We know they have a low reproduction rate, but we dont know how fast ... or what theyre eating, so we dont know what to protect, said Dr. Frank Ridgley, head of conservation and research at Zoo Miami. Until we answer those questions, its hard to get a recovery plan. Despite years of study, finding natural roosts has been difficult, making it hard for scientists to scrutinize how they live. Until last year, no roosts had been found since the 1970s. The single roost discovered by a biologist looking for woodpeckers in tree holes at the Avon Park Air Force Base in Central Florida contained a single bat. Were still finding out what we do know and what we dont know. We havent listened everywhere and we might find it somewhere else, said Dana Hartley, supervisor of the endangered species program for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which plans on releasing a draft proposal addressing potential habitat on Sept. 30. The bats officially Eumops floridanus, or Eumops for short show up most frequently at the golf course and sometimes near Zoo Miami. Biologists think the fuzzy bats, with ears so round they form a brim-like bonnet, historically roosted in pine rocklands and wetlands that development shrunk over the years. A colony also roosts in several man-made bat houses in Punta Gorda and Fort Myers. Last year, two trained dogs from Auburn University spent 21 days hunting for roosts in South Florida, but only turned up a single rice-sized bit of scat that a trainer keeps frozen, hoping to find a lab that can accurately test its DNA. Eumops also tend to be sneaky. While other bats form massive colonies, leaving roosts in noisy, thundering herds, the hamster-sized Eumops may live in small, restless harems that attach to a single male and frequently change roosts. Eumops are one of the few bats that can be heard, said Kirsten Kisi Bohn, the FIU biologist whose work on bat songs is featured in the current Science magazine. DAVEORRICK St. Paul Pioneer PressMINNEAPOLIS Several years ago, a friend told Minneapolis furniture designer Bert Taylor he should look up teardrop campers on the Internet. It changed his life. This was a scale I could work with, Taylor, 63, said. These were basically the size of large pieces of furniture. Today, Taylor and a small staff build sleek, compact, retro-style camper trailers from a workshop in Minneapolis warehouse district. His 3-year-old enterprise, Vistabule, is modest but growing; he built 12 campers last year and this year, his goal is 36. Vistabule is a portmanteau word combining vista drawn from the signature gaping window that affords its occupants ample views and vestibule, suggestive of the cozy confines of the 5-foot-by-10-foot trailers. I wanted to take the cave on wheels and turn it into an observatory on wheels, he told the St. Paul Pioneer Presswhile showing a reporter around his workshop. The place smells of a woodworking shop sawdust from the blonde-hued Baltic birch that forms the interior paneling of the campers. The workforce on this day consists of his brother Dave, 67, and friend and partner Don Grandbois, 77. The average age is reduced by Bert Taylors daughter Lilly, 26, who works the computer. The atmosphere is relaxed and joking. Two containers of Franzia boxed wine are perched on a cabinet, ready for dispensing. Among Taylors numerous endeavors over the years, hes also taking a stab at growing vineyards. I started this venture late in life, he chuckled. I didnt really realize how much effort this would take, mentally and physically, but I feel lucky to be doing it. And I love solving design problems. Originally, Taylor had been interested in campers for two reasons. He wanted to buy one because he appreciated the design of vintage models like Airstream and he figured as he aged hed appreciate a camper more than a tent. The second was that he wanted inspiration for designing furniture. When that friend told him to research teardrop campers small trailers that offer a place to sleep out of the elements but dont attempt to offer living rooms, showers and other amenities of full-size recreational vehicles it inspired him to try to build one himself. For fun. We dont see ourselves as RVers, but as campers, he said. He purchased plans and started to build one, but his propensity for design improvement got in the way. I realized this was the work of an amateur, he said. It might have been good for the trailer he wanted, but not for the one I wanted. It was claustrophobic. I knew I could do better. The creation he eventually built in 2011 was a head-turner. When asked to described the genre, he uses word like iconic, from the 1930s and s, nautical and vintage UFO. We took it to the Grand Canyon, and the response we got was unbelievable, he said. Everyone wanted to talk to us and look inside. Teardrop trailers are a niche at the tiny end of the camper trailer continuum. But they have a devoted following. The premise is a level of comfort, but a compactness that makes for storage in any garage and lightness that can handle being towed by most cars. (Vistabules are lighter than 1,300 pounds, within the threshold for many sedans.) One small maker of retro-style aluminumskinned models is Necedah, Wisconsin-based Camp-Inn. Big Woody Campers builds woodpaneled versions out of Elk Mound, Wisconsin. The big guy on the block is Little Guy, based in Ohio. Little Guy offers campers starting as low as $4,400. Vistabules, on the other hand, generally range from $14,000 to $17,000. The difference in price was well worth it for Stephanie Weiss of West St. Paul. In the summer of 2012, she was in the market for a teardrop camper.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleSand Blackberry is a common, prickly bramble in the sand hills of Central Florida. The fruit, called a drupe, is ripe from late May to July. and Massachusetts and west to Louisiana. Its erect, arching stems, 4 to 5 feet tall, are armed with stiff, curved thorns. Be sure to wear heavy jeans and a long-sleeved shirt when picking the juicy, tasty fruit. Compound leaves, usually with three leaflets, alternate along the stem. Leaf stems also have prickles. The green leaves have distinctive white hairs underneath. Rubus flowers are five-petaled, white to pinkish in color, and resemble a little single rose. They are in the Rose family. Sand Backberry flowers are in loose clusters at the ends of the stiff canes. They bloom from May to June locally, so the fruit, called a drupe, is ripe from late May to July. Ripe fruit turns black. Unripe green or reddish fruit is hard and too tart to eat. Typically, Sand Blackberries quickly colonize abandoned cleared fields, city lots and unmowed roadsides. There are many patches of blackberries along U.S. 41, State Road 200 and County Road 484. When headed home, I stop the car, get out and enjoy a pleasant hour picking wild blackberries and listening to birds. The sweet fruit is worth the effort. I prefer to drop the luscious berries into a wide wicker basket. At home, I rinse the fruit and then soak it for a few minutes to see if any insects will emerge and swim to the sides of the sink or bowl. Pour off the water and any debris, then spread the berries on a paper towel and pat dry. Blackberries may be eaten fresh, sprinkled on morning cereal, frozen in freezer bags, baked into muffins and quick breads, dehydrated or preserved in jams, jellies and preserves. Cooked and very ripe berries quickly turn into a mush which can be crushed with the bottom of a glass or mug, sieved or strained through cheese cloth and made into syrup and juice concentrate. Blackberry flavored wine is available commercially. So far I have not tried to make wines, as I have never picked enough fruit to ferment a large enough batch. Thornless hybrid blackberries are available in retail nurseries. Red Raspberry, R. indaeus, Zone 4-9 and Black Raspberry, R.occidentalis, zone 3-9 also grow well in Central Florida. Be aware that Rubus bears fruit on second year canes. Old canes are usually cut to the ground after harvest. The healthy root system quickly sends up another colony of canes. These grow tall and lose their leaves for winter. Leaves emerge in early spring. New flowers cluster at the branch tips in late spring locally. Grow blackberries in full sun in moderately rich, well-drained, moist soil. Many exotic Rubusspecies become naturalized and can invade natural habitats, displacing naturally occurring species. Blackberry jam 4 cups washed, fresh-picked blackberries. 1 cup water. 1.5 cups granulated white sugar or honey. 1 tablespoon of butter. 4.5 tablespoons Low or Nosugar Needed Pectin.Crush the blackberries and water with a potato masher or liquefy in a blender to crush the seeds. Bring berries and water to a rolling boil in a large steel pot. Add sugar and re-boil, stirring constantly. Add 1 teaspoon of butter to reduce foaming. Sprinkle in the pectin powder, stirring constantly for one minute. Pour jam into hot, sterilized, tempered mason jars. Wipe rims clean of any spills with a wet paper towel. Cap with hot sterilized lids and hand-tighten rings. Boil in a deep canner for five minutes. Set jars on wire rack out of air movement to cool. Listen for the lids popping, which indicates a vacuum seal. Yields seven half-pint jars.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan dipped to 4.13 percent, down from 4.15 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, edged down to 3.23 percent, compared with 3.24 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago, having fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term rates low. Rates on one-year adjustable rate mortgages were 2.39 percent this week, down from 2.40 percent last week, while rates on five-year adjustable rate mortgages were 2.97 percent, down from 2.99 percent last week. At 4.13 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the beginning of this year. Rates have fallen modestly even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Congress this week that the purchases will likely end altogether at the end of October. But at the same time, Yellen said during congressional testimony that the Fed still sees the need to keep its benchmark short-term rate at a record low near zero to give the economy support. To calculate average mortgage rates, 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 was 0.6 point, down from 0.7 point last week. Painter still active today; hunting knife from Scotland Dear John: I have this watercolor.

Devotion to pets is second-tonone, he added. They are family. The American Pet Products Association reports that 68 percent of Americans own pets and contribute to an industry worth more than $55 billion annually. Real estate officials say building homes designed to cater to pets is a new concept, but that remodels for pet owners have been available for some time. Adam Cowherd Construction in Ozark, Missouri, installs petfriendly additions to homes. Cowherd said he recently finished a job where there was an open shelf on the end of a kitchen island to hold pet bowls. Owners want it uniquely functional, very contemporary and something that catches the eye, Cowherd said. However, only once in the last 10 years has he been asked to build a whole room for a pet, he added. Melanie Dean lives with her family near Dallas in a Standard Pacific home with a pet package for their dog, Lola. Lolas room makes life much easier, Dean said. We dont have to use the kitchen sink to wash yucky stuff anymore. We have readers who are introducing brightly colored cabinets and appliances in tomato, pumpkin and daisy, she adds. At this springs Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York, manufacturers were showing lots of vibrantly hued kitchen equipment. Bertazzonis Arancio range came in orange, burgundy and yellow. Big Chill displayed a wall full of paint-box hues including jadite (a milky green), cherry and pink. AGAs Signature line of beefy, professional-grade ranges comes in intriguing colors like aubergine, duck-egg blue, heather, pistachio, claret and British racing green. (www.bertazzoni.com; www.bigchill.com; www.aga-ranges.com) Fans of metallics might go for Blue Stars dramatic collection of ranges, wall ovens and hoods in copper, gold and a chocolate-y ginger, as well as several hundred other colors and finishes. (www.bluestar cooking.com) Kitchens of any vintage can look great with colorful walls. Pumpkin, cobalt and deep Prussian blue enhance all kinds of woods, whether youre working with 19th century pine, Craftsman-era oak or midcentury walnut. Or consider the ceiling. In a small galley kitchen, bold color on the ceiling creates a jewel box effect. Deep hues like eggplant, navy, magenta or carmine compliment white cabinetry in a large kitchen, and look great in both natural and artificial light. New York designer Gideon Mendelson applied a pea-green gingham canvas cloth to the ceiling of a country house kitchen, and painted the island in a similar shade. With a collection of vintage baskets displayed along the tops of snowy wood cabinetry, the vibe is relaxed, fresh and contemporary. (www.mendelson groupinc.com) Meg Caswell, a designer and host on HGTVs Great Rooms, loves to add color to kitchens. She used a backsplash of crisp, blue and green fused-glass tiles as a counterpoint to a rustic, Old World-style metal and wood kitchen island, glossy black cabinetry and citrine wallpaper in an Art Deco-era home. In another home, she mixed sleek teal-andwhite glass with farmhouse blue cabinets. (www.megcaswell.com; www.hgtv.com) Baldwin, of This Old House, advises painting upper and base cabinets different colors, or painting an island or hutch in a contrasting shade. This helps reinforce their freestanding furniture look, which harks back to 18thand 19th-century kitchens, she says. (www.thisoldhouse.com) Painting the floor either one color or in a pattern like checkerboard can reinforce the vintage look too, she notes. Options include graphic designs or stencils, or illustrated rug motifs. Better Homes & Gardens website has lots of ideas. (www.bhg.com/kitchen) If youre in a rental with limited decorating options, go for color accents like Fiesta ware, rag rugs, a couple of snazzy stools, and counter appliances in candy hues.NCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE MAGNIFICENT COUNTRY ESTATE 7,434 sq. ft. total on 25 ac (fenced & gated) scattered trees, pond.

The overall weakness reflected a 9 percent fall in construction of single-family homes, the biggest part of the market, and a 9.9 percent drop in construction of apartments and other multi-family units. All of the June weakness was confined to the South, where about 40 percent of home construction occurs. Construction was up 14.1 percent in the Northeast, 28.1 percent in the Midwest and 2.6 percent in the West. Home construction has struggled to gain traction this year, limiting its ability to contribute to economic growth. Part of the weakness reflected an unusually severe winter which hampered construction. But rising home prices, a rise in mortgage rates from historically low levels and tighter lending standards imposed since the financial crisis have also been a barrier, especially for potential first-time buyers. There still is hope that housing will perform better in the second half of the year although Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen told Congress this week that the slowdown in housing is one of the concerns at the Fed and that its forecast for an economic rebound may prove to be too optimistic. The National Association of Home Builders, however, reported Wednesday that homebuilder confidence surged in July, reflecting heightened expectations that the second half of the year will see rising sales. The builders sentiment index rose to 53, up four points from a revised reading of 49 in June. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor. The July reading was the first month above 50 since January when the index stood at 56. New home sales surged 18.6 percent in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 504,000, the highest level in six years, while sales of previously owned homes rose 4.9 percent, the biggest one-month gain in nearly three years, to a rate of 4.89 million homes. Even with the big May increases, sales of new homes are still running at just about half the pace of a healthy real estate market. Economists expect there is a lot of pent-up demand for homes after many potential buyers put off purchases during the 2007-2009 recession and the weak recovery since that time. Job growth has accelerated in recent months, with an increase of 288,000 jobs in June. That has helped to push down the unemployment rate to a nearly six-year low of 6.1 percent in June. There is optimism that employers will step up their hiring further in the second half of this year as they respond to a rebound in overall economic growth following a weak winter. The economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9 percent in the JanuaryMarch quarter but analysts believe growth rebounded to around 3 percent in the April-June quarter and will remain around that level for the remainder of this year.

Devotion to pets is second-tonone, he added. They are family. The American Pet Products Association reports that 68 percent of Americans own pets and contribute to an industry worth more than $55 billion annually. Real estate officials say building homes designed to cater to pets is a new concept, but that remodels for pet owners have been available for some time. Adam Cowherd Construction in Ozark, Missouri, installs petfriendly additions to homes. Cowherd said he recently finished a job where there was an open shelf on the end of a kitchen island to hold pet bowls. Owners want it uniquely functional, very contemporary and something that catches the eye, Cowherd said. However, only once in the last 10 years has he been asked to build a whole room for a pet, he added. Melanie Dean lives with her family near Dallas in a Standard Pacific home with a pet package for their dog, Lola. Lolas room makes life much easier, Dean said. We dont have to use the kitchen sink to wash yucky stuff anymore. We have readers who are introducing brightly colored cabinets and appliances in tomato, pumpkin and daisy, she adds. At this springs Architectural Digest Home Design Show in New York, manufacturers were showing lots of vibrantly hued kitchen equipment. Bertazzonis Arancio range came in orange, burgundy and yellow. Big Chill displayed a wall full of paint-box hues including jadite (a milky green), cherry and pink. AGAs Signature line of beefy, professional-grade ranges comes in intriguing colors like aubergine, duck-egg blue, heather, pistachio, claret and British racing green. (www.bertazzoni.com; www.bigchill.com; www.aga-ranges.com) Fans of metallics might go for Blue Stars dramatic collection of ranges, wall ovens and hoods in copper, gold and a chocolate-y ginger, as well as several hundred other colors and finishes. (www.bluestar cooking.com) Kitchens of any vintage can look great with colorful walls. Pumpkin, cobalt and deep Prussian blue enhance all kinds of woods, whether youre working with 19th century pine, Craftsman-era oak or midcentury walnut. Or consider the ceiling. In a small galley kitchen, bold color on the ceiling creates a jewel box effect. Deep hues like eggplant, navy, magenta or carmine compliment white cabinetry in a large kitchen, and look great in both natural and artificial light. New York designer Gideon Mendelson applied a pea-green gingham canvas cloth to the ceiling of a country house kitchen, and painted the island in a similar shade. With a collection of vintage baskets displayed along the tops of snowy wood cabinetry, the vibe is relaxed, fresh and contemporary. (www.mendelson groupinc.com) Meg Caswell, a designer and host on HGTVs Great Rooms, loves to add color to kitchens. She used a backsplash of crisp, blue and green fused-glass tiles as a counterpoint to a rustic, Old World-style metal and wood kitchen island, glossy black cabinetry and citrine wallpaper in an Art Deco-era home. In another home, she mixed sleek teal-andwhite glass with farmhouse blue cabinets. (www.megcaswell.com; www.hgtv.com) Baldwin, of This Old House, advises painting upper and base cabinets different colors, or painting an island or hutch in a contrasting shade. This helps reinforce their freestanding furniture look, which harks back to 18thand 19th-century kitchens, she says. (www.thisoldhouse.com) Painting the floor either one color or in a pattern like checkerboard can reinforce the vintage look too, she notes. Options include graphic designs or stencils, or illustrated rug motifs. Better Homes & Gardens website has lots of ideas. (www.bhg.com/kitchen) If youre in a rental with limited decorating options, go for color accents like Fiesta ware, rag rugs, a couple of snazzy stools, and counter appliances in candy hues.NCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014E7 E10SUNDAY, JULY20, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE MAGNIFICENT COUNTRY ESTATE 7,434 sq. ft. total on 25 ac (fenced & gated) scattered trees, pond.

The overall weakness reflected a 9 percent fall in construction of single-family homes, the biggest part of the market, and a 9.9 percent drop in construction of apartments and other multi-family units. All of the June weakness was confined to the South, where about 40 percent of home construction occurs. Construction was up 14.1 percent in the Northeast, 28.1 percent in the Midwest and 2.6 percent in the West. Home construction has struggled to gain traction this year, limiting its ability to contribute to economic growth. Part of the weakness reflected an unusually severe winter which hampered construction. But rising home prices, a rise in mortgage rates from historically low levels and tighter lending standards imposed since the financial crisis have also been a barrier, especially for potential first-time buyers. There still is hope that housing will perform better in the second half of the year although Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen told Congress this week that the slowdown in housing is one of the concerns at the Fed and that its forecast for an economic rebound may prove to be too optimistic. The National Association of Home Builders, however, reported Wednesday that homebuilder confidence surged in July, reflecting heightened expectations that the second half of the year will see rising sales. The builders sentiment index rose to 53, up four points from a revised reading of 49 in June. Readings above 50 indicate more builders view sales conditions as good rather than poor. The July reading was the first month above 50 since January when the index stood at 56. New home sales surged 18.6 percent in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 504,000, the highest level in six years, while sales of previously owned homes rose 4.9 percent, the biggest one-month gain in nearly three years, to a rate of 4.89 million homes. Even with the big May increases, sales of new homes are still running at just about half the pace of a healthy real estate market. Economists expect there is a lot of pent-up demand for homes after many potential buyers put off purchases during the 2007-2009 recession and the weak recovery since that time. Job growth has accelerated in recent months, with an increase of 288,000 jobs in June. That has helped to push down the unemployment rate to a nearly six-year low of 6.1 percent in June. There is optimism that employers will step up their hiring further in the second half of this year as they respond to a rebound in overall economic growth following a weak winter. The economy shrank at an annual rate of 2.9 percent in the JanuaryMarch quarter but analysts believe growth rebounded to around 3 percent in the April-June quarter and will remain around that level for the remainder of this year.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChronicleSand Blackberry is a common, prickly bramble in the sand hills of Central Florida. The fruit, called a drupe, is ripe from late May to July. and Massachusetts and west to Louisiana. Its erect, arching stems, 4 to 5 feet tall, are armed with stiff, curved thorns. Be sure to wear heavy jeans and a long-sleeved shirt when picking the juicy, tasty fruit. Compound leaves, usually with three leaflets, alternate along the stem. Leaf stems also have prickles. The green leaves have distinctive white hairs underneath. Rubus flowers are five-petaled, white to pinkish in color, and resemble a little single rose. They are in the Rose family. Sand Backberry flowers are in loose clusters at the ends of the stiff canes. They bloom from May to June locally, so the fruit, called a drupe, is ripe from late May to July. Ripe fruit turns black. Unripe green or reddish fruit is hard and too tart to eat. Typically, Sand Blackberries quickly colonize abandoned cleared fields, city lots and unmowed roadsides. There are many patches of blackberries along U.S. 41, State Road 200 and County Road 484. When headed home, I stop the car, get out and enjoy a pleasant hour picking wild blackberries and listening to birds. The sweet fruit is worth the effort. I prefer to drop the luscious berries into a wide wicker basket. At home, I rinse the fruit and then soak it for a few minutes to see if any insects will emerge and swim to the sides of the sink or bowl. Pour off the water and any debris, then spread the berries on a paper towel and pat dry. Blackberries may be eaten fresh, sprinkled on morning cereal, frozen in freezer bags, baked into muffins and quick breads, dehydrated or preserved in jams, jellies and preserves. Cooked and very ripe berries quickly turn into a mush which can be crushed with the bottom of a glass or mug, sieved or strained through cheese cloth and made into syrup and juice concentrate. Blackberry flavored wine is available commercially. So far I have not tried to make wines, as I have never picked enough fruit to ferment a large enough batch. Thornless hybrid blackberries are available in retail nurseries. Red Raspberry, R. indaeus, Zone 4-9 and Black Raspberry, R.occidentalis, zone 3-9 also grow well in Central Florida. Be aware that Rubus bears fruit on second year canes. Old canes are usually cut to the ground after harvest. The healthy root system quickly sends up another colony of canes. These grow tall and lose their leaves for winter. Leaves emerge in early spring. New flowers cluster at the branch tips in late spring locally. Grow blackberries in full sun in moderately rich, well-drained, moist soil. Many exotic Rubusspecies become naturalized and can invade natural habitats, displacing naturally occurring species. Blackberry jam 4 cups washed, fresh-picked blackberries. 1 cup water. 1.5 cups granulated white sugar or honey. 1 tablespoon of butter. 4.5 tablespoons Low or Nosugar Needed Pectin.Crush the blackberries and water with a potato masher or liquefy in a blender to crush the seeds. Bring berries and water to a rolling boil in a large steel pot. Add sugar and re-boil, stirring constantly. Add 1 teaspoon of butter to reduce foaming. Sprinkle in the pectin powder, stirring constantly for one minute. Pour jam into hot, sterilized, tempered mason jars. Wipe rims clean of any spills with a wet paper towel. Cap with hot sterilized lids and hand-tighten rings. Boil in a deep canner for five minutes. Set jars on wire rack out of air movement to cool. Listen for the lids popping, which indicates a vacuum seal. Yields seven half-pint jars.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac reported Thursday that the nationwide average for a 30-year loan dipped to 4.13 percent, down from 4.15 percent last week. The average for the 15-year mortgage, a popular choice for people who are refinancing, edged down to 3.23 percent, compared with 3.24 percent last week. Mortgage rates are below the levels of a year ago, having fallen in recent weeks after climbing last summer when the Federal Reserve began talking about reducing the monthly bond purchases it was making to keep long-term rates low. Rates on one-year adjustable rate mortgages were 2.39 percent this week, down from 2.40 percent last week, while rates on five-year adjustable rate mortgages were 2.97 percent, down from 2.99 percent last week. At 4.13 percent, the rate on a 30-year mortgage is down from 4.53 percent at the beginning of this year. Rates have fallen modestly even though the Fed has been trimming its monthly bond purchases. Fed Chair Janet Yellen told Congress this week that the purchases will likely end altogether at the end of October. But at the same time, Yellen said during congressional testimony that the Fed still sees the need to keep its benchmark short-term rate at a record low near zero to give the economy support. To calculate average mortgage rates, 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 was 0.6 point, down from 0.7 point last week. Painter still active today; hunting knife from Scotland Dear John: I have this watercolor.

JENNYSTALETOVICH Miami HeraldCORAL GABLES Giselle Hosein peers into the dark sky above a manicured fairway on the Coral Gables Granada Golf Course, trying hard to see what she can so far only hear: an elusive Florida bonneted bat, among the rarest in the world. It took me three or four months before I was actually able to see one, she said. The bats, which number fewer than a thousand, have found an unlikely foraging ground at the ninehole course. By day, the former orchard draws mostly duffers and retirees, or joggers cruising the perimeter past ritzy villas and condos lawyer Roy Black and wife Lea, of Real Housewives fame, live in one walled compound. Former Gov. Jeb Bush once occupied a condo. But at night, the bats come out to play, feasting on insects to a steady rhythm of trills and tweets. When it gets dark, you hear them right next to you, but you cant see them, said Hosein, a research assistant to a Florida International University biologist and bat expert. Its like your mind is playing tricks on you. Then she sees it: a dark outline soaring against white clouds dotting the midnight blue sky. Just as quickly, the bat vanishes. Yet its calls constant chirps to get its bearings mingled with chatter that could signal mates, pups or predators fill the muggy night like a mockingbird on fast forward. Over the next hour, Hosein spots more bats, or the same one, a dozen times. A sound meter tucked into a ficus tree on the course typically records a thousand calls each night. The bats, which have the smallest range of any bat species in the western hemisphere, are one of the New Worlds most vulnerable, found mostly around South Florida. In November, U.S. wildlife managers added them to the endangered species list, citing both habitat loss and annual mosquito-spraying as critical threats. The government and biologists are now trying to determine where the bats live and whether their habitat can be protected. But the bats arent cooperating. We literally know nothing about them. We know they have a low reproduction rate, but we dont know how fast ... or what theyre eating, so we dont know what to protect, said Dr. Frank Ridgley, head of conservation and research at Zoo Miami. Until we answer those questions, its hard to get a recovery plan. Despite years of study, finding natural roosts has been difficult, making it hard for scientists to scrutinize how they live. Until last year, no roosts had been found since the 1970s. The single roost discovered by a biologist looking for woodpeckers in tree holes at the Avon Park Air Force Base in Central Florida contained a single bat. Were still finding out what we do know and what we dont know. We havent listened everywhere and we might find it somewhere else, said Dana Hartley, supervisor of the endangered species program for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which plans on releasing a draft proposal addressing potential habitat on Sept. 30. The bats officially Eumops floridanus, or Eumops for short show up most frequently at the golf course and sometimes near Zoo Miami. Biologists think the fuzzy bats, with ears so round they form a brim-like bonnet, historically roosted in pine rocklands and wetlands that development shrunk over the years. A colony also roosts in several man-made bat houses in Punta Gorda and Fort Myers. Last year, two trained dogs from Auburn University spent 21 days hunting for roosts in South Florida, but only turned up a single rice-sized bit of scat that a trainer keeps frozen, hoping to find a lab that can accurately test its DNA. Eumops also tend to be sneaky. While other bats form massive colonies, leaving roosts in noisy, thundering herds, the hamster-sized Eumops may live in small, restless harems that attach to a single male and frequently change roosts. Eumops are one of the few bats that can be heard, said Kirsten Kisi Bohn, the FIU biologist whose work on bat songs is featured in the current Science magazine. DAVEORRICK St. Paul Pioneer PressMINNEAPOLIS Several years ago, a friend told Minneapolis furniture designer Bert Taylor he should look up teardrop campers on the Internet. It changed his life. This was a scale I could work with, Taylor, 63, said. These were basically the size of large pieces of furniture. Today, Taylor and a small staff build sleek, compact, retro-style camper trailers from a workshop in Minneapolis warehouse district. His 3-year-old enterprise, Vistabule, is modest but growing; he built 12 campers last year and this year, his goal is 36. Vistabule is a portmanteau word combining vista drawn from the signature gaping window that affords its occupants ample views and vestibule, suggestive of the cozy confines of the 5-foot-by-10-foot trailers. I wanted to take the cave on wheels and turn it into an observatory on wheels, he told the St. Paul Pioneer Presswhile showing a reporter around his workshop. The place smells of a woodworking shop sawdust from the blonde-hued Baltic birch that forms the interior paneling of the campers. The workforce on this day consists of his brother Dave, 67, and friend and partner Don Grandbois, 77. The average age is reduced by Bert Taylors daughter Lilly, 26, who works the computer. The atmosphere is relaxed and joking. Two containers of Franzia boxed wine are perched on a cabinet, ready for dispensing. Among Taylors numerous endeavors over the years, hes also taking a stab at growing vineyards. I started this venture late in life, he chuckled. I didnt really realize how much effort this would take, mentally and physically, but I feel lucky to be doing it. And I love solving design problems. Originally, Taylor had been interested in campers for two reasons. He wanted to buy one because he appreciated the design of vintage models like Airstream and he figured as he aged hed appreciate a camper more than a tent. The second was that he wanted inspiration for designing furniture. When that friend told him to research teardrop campers small trailers that offer a place to sleep out of the elements but dont attempt to offer living rooms, showers and other amenities of full-size recreational vehicles it inspired him to try to build one himself. For fun. We dont see ourselves as RVers, but as campers, he said. He purchased plans and started to build one, but his propensity for design improvement got in the way. I realized this was the work of an amateur, he said. It might have been good for the trailer he wanted, but not for the one I wanted. It was claustrophobic. I knew I could do better. The creation he eventually built in 2011 was a head-turner. When asked to described the genre, he uses word like iconic, from the 1930s and s, nautical and vintage UFO. We took it to the Grand Canyon, and the response we got was unbelievable, he said. Everyone wanted to talk to us and look inside. Teardrop trailers are a niche at the tiny end of the camper trailer continuum. But they have a devoted following. The premise is a level of comfort, but a compactness that makes for storage in any garage and lightness that can handle being towed by most cars. (Vistabules are lighter than 1,300 pounds, within the threshold for many sedans.) One small maker of retro-style aluminumskinned models is Necedah, Wisconsin-based Camp-Inn. Big Woody Campers builds woodpaneled versions out of Elk Mound, Wisconsin. The big guy on the block is Little Guy, based in Ohio. Little Guy offers campers starting as low as $4,400. Vistabules, on the other hand, generally range from $14,000 to $17,000. The difference in price was well worth it for Stephanie Weiss of West St. Paul. In the summer of 2012, she was in the market for a teardrop camper.

waking up in a puddle of water, said Weiss, 47, the director of news and media services at Augsburg College. As I got older, I just wanted to be more comfortable. She stumbled across Taylors ad on Craigslist just hours, it turned out, after he had first posted it his first attempt to sell a Vistabule. I told him I wanted to hire him to build me one, she said. I think he thought I was crazy. What sold Weiss, who has a history in sailing, was the nautical theme, the relative roominess and, of course, that huge picture window an element perhaps unique to the Vistabule. As for the cost: If you give a rip about aesthetics, its absolutely worth it, she said. You get something so beautiful. If you want to sleep in a Clorox bottle, go buy a fiberglass one. Weiss enthusiasm for her camper is unequivocal. From the ease of trailering and backing into campsites the large windows allow the driver to see right through the thing to the functionality of the kitchenette, or galley, she said its become an integral part of summer travel for her, her fiance and their dogs. I will hook it up Friday evening or Saturday morning, and if the sweetheart cant go with me, I grab a dog and just go, she said. After-dark setup involves little hassle, unlike a tent, and the purchase has allowed her to start working through a bucket list of state parks within a couple hours drive of the Twin Cities. Family events and weather have cramped her camping so far this season, but she said its often substituted for a motel or fold-out sofa at family functions, affording her solitude and a view. And she draws a crowd. You cant be an introvert and own one because everyone wants to talk to you about it. Taylor said hes constantly tinkering with improving the design and functionality. Door and window latches, for example, are custom made. I didnt design it for off-the-shelf parts, he said. That would limit me too much. As for the basic shape, the curves and the feel, he believes he accomplished what he set out to do. It was difficult to come up with something unique, but I think Ive done it. made out of silver. I am thinking it is from the 1800s. I need all the help I can get! The first two hallmarks read TE, and I cannot really make out the other three. R.T., Internet Dear R.T.: You have an interesting hunting knife. The impressed words made in Scotland on the metal indicate it was made in the 20th century no earlier. I cannot make out the two letters TE or the other impressed marks. Take it out in the bright light and look closely with a magnifier. If the decorative metal portions are silver, one of the marks will indicate such. Let me know what you discover and I will finish the story. Dear John: Here is a photo of an Acme Brewing Company Prohibition-era sign for American Queen Beer. This is a cardboard poster. The actual beer label is applied. Can you tell anything about this and is it original? K., Internet Dear K.: I have no reason to doubt your advertising poster is genuine. The Acme Brewing Company located in Macon, Georgia, was in business from 1893 to 1916. The words at the top of the poster, Are you Wet or Dry? could have a connection to Prohibition, but I am not sure. I can see the poster could use some restoration. I suggest you contact William Morford at Morford Auctions; he specializes in high-quality advertising memorabilia. The website is www. morfauction.com. The phone number is 315-6627625. Good luck. Dear John: A while back in your column someone asked about getting a broken porcelain figurine repaired. I wish I had made a note about the restorer, but I did not. Now I need their services because of an unfortunate accident. My son and his wife were here for a visit with the kids. While playing, one of them bumped into my china cabinet and one of my porcelain figurines toppled over and the arm was broken into three pieces. Can this badly broken arm be restored? F.C., InternetDear F.C.: Yes, the arm can be restored. In fact, after proper restoration, you will not be able to see where the arm was broken. Leak Enterprises is located in Belleview.

Associated PressWASHINGTON U.S. home construction fell in June to the slowest pace in nine months, a setback to hopes that housing is regaining momentum and will boost economic growth this year. Construction fell 9.3 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 893,000 homes, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That was the slowest pace since last September and followed a 7.3 percent drop in May, a decline even worse than initially reported. Applications for building permits, considered a good indicator of future activity, were also down in June, dropping 4.2 percent to a rate of 963,000 after a 5.1 percent decline in May. The worse-than-expected June performance reflected a big drop in activity in the South, where construction plunged by 29.6 percent last month. Analysts, however, said that the June decline in construction may have been influenced by temporary factors such as heavy rain in parts of the South which could have held back housing starts in that region. Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO, said it was too soon to conclude that the housing recovery has stalled. After all, job growth continues, mortgage rates are near Davis continues to soar at ERAERA American Realty & Investments is proud to announce the latest production level achieved by one of its agents in 2014.
