See ARRESTS/ Page A2 Piano comforts his soul House gives the go-ahead to sue Obama Associated PressWASHINGTON A sharply divided House approved a Republican plan Wednesday to launch a campaign-season lawsuit against President Barack Obama, accusing him of exceeding the bounds of his constitutional authority. Obama and other Democrats derided the effort as a stunt aimed at tossing political red meat to conservative voters. Just a day before lawmakers were to begin a five-week summer recess, debate over the proposed lawsuit underscored the harshly partisan tone that has dominated the current Congress almost from its start in January 2013. The vote to sue Obama was 225 to 201. Five Republicans voted with the Democrats in opposing the lawsuit. No Democrats voted for it. Republicans said the legal action, focusing on Obamas implementation of his prized health care overhaul, was designed to prevent a further presidential power grab and his deciding unilaterally how to enforce laws. No member needs to be reminded about the bonds of trust that have been frayed or the damage thats already been done to our economy and to our people, declared House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Are you willing to let any president choose what laws to execute and what laws to change? NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHERNANDOWhen Roland Ronnie Smith sits down at the piano, it is well with his soul. A career church musician, he now has stage 4 cancer and dementia with all the confusion and memory loss that brings. But when hes at the keyboard, hes transported. He is back in the grand cathedrals and tiny chapels, playing for Presbyterians and Anglicans, playing a grand piano, playing an even grander pipe organ.

He often doesnt remember people or names or recent events, but he remembers how to play hymns and classical pieces, the theme from the movie Forest Gump or the 1981 hit Key Largo, the Bertie Higgins song on which he played as Higgins piano accompanist. Recently Smiths wife, Felicia, arranged for her husband to give a short concert at Woodland Terrace for residents and staff. Wearing a new blue shirt, the accomplished pianist took his seat at the piano bench. Closing his eyes, his fingers began to fly over the keys as he played It Is Well With My Soul.

Top executives at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida and Cigna said rate increases are likely, but declined specifics. Humana proposed an average 14.1 percent increase for its HMOs, saying the increase was driven by factors including increased prescription drug costs and doctor and hospital reimbursements. However, Molina has proposed an 11.6 percent average rate decrease. Critics of the health overhaul warned of huge rate increases, a signal they say shows the law isnt working. But rates have risen as much as 20 or 30 percent in recent years and early filing from insurers in other states suggest the 2015 increases wont be as dramatic. Meanwhile, insurers say that even though the nearly 1 million Florida enrollees include many who are older with chronic conditions, the marketplace is still ripe for profits. Brian Evanko, president of Cignas U.S. individual market, said the company anticipates financial losses from the exchange in 2014, but we expect over time that as things tend to shake out this could be a very attractive market for us. Federal health officials say 91 percent of Floridas 983,775 enrollees received a tax subsidy, 55 percent were female and 45 percent were male. The government and insurance companies have not released data on how many were previously uninsured and no details on their health conditions. A lot of the people are in need of more chronic care as opposed to people who might need a knee surgery and held out to get it, said Evanko. At Florida Blue, the states largest insurer, the average consumer age was slightly over 45 in the exchange, while their average consumer age is under 40 outside the exchange. Only about 23 percent made up the crucial healthy young adult demographic, which is essential to balancing out the cost of caring for older, sicker consumers, said Jon Urbanek, a senior vice president for the BCBSs Florida Blue. From a risk pool, its slightly worse than what we would have first anticipated, said Urbanek. About 1 in 3 Floridians who signed up or 339,000 people chose a Florida Blue plan, Urbanek said.

MORGAN BROWN/For the ChronicleLecanto High School Principal Jeff Davis greets the Class of 2018 at this years freshmen orientation. Students across the scho ol district are preparing for the start of school on next Wednesday. ChronicleTeachers return to work today in preparation for the roughly 14,000 Citrus County School District students who will be walking in for the first day of school next week. On Wednesday, Aug. 6, the 2014-15 school year begins and the big first-day transition for many soon-to-be freshmen can be daunting. As with most typical first days of school, buses may well run late, children will show up unannounced and traffic likely will be tied up. But to a high school freshman, that is the least of his or her worries. How are they going to survive? Hence, the need for freshmen orientation. Freshmen orientation is a rite of passage for entering ninth-graders. They are introduced to influential faculty members, play get-to-know-you games, tour the campus and are divided into their homeroom classes, where they spend all four years of high school. According to Crystal River High Schools newsletter, frequently asked questions and answers that apply to the three county public high schools, include: Where is the first place I should go when I get to school? Report to your homeroom teacher first. When will the first bell ring? First bell will ring at 7:50 a.m. and tardy bell will ring at 7:55 a.m. Where will I get my schedule? Schedules will be distributed in homeroom. What is the deadline for changing a class? Schedule changes must be requested within the first three days of school and must meet the criteria for a change. Orientation reduces first-day stress for incoming high school freshmen

The live telecast of this musical classic will air Dec. 4. The 26-year-old actress-comedian plays Marnie Michaels on HBOs comedy Girls, for which she has recorded several songs. She is the daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams and has also appeared on The Mindy Project and The League. NBC recently announced that Oscar winner Christopher Walken will play the villainous pirate Captain Hook. I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about 3 years old, so this is a dream come true, said Williams, who added, What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, swordfighting and singing? This musical version of Peter Pan has a long tradition on NBC. It opened on Broadway in 1954, starring Mary Martin as the flying boy and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook in a pair of Tony Awardwinning performances. They reprised their Broadway roles in a live telecast of the production that aired on NBC in 1955, revived a year later with a second live telecast and then, in 1960, with a new, videotaped Peter Pan that again starred Martin and Ritchard.Lollapalooza marks a decade in ChicagoCHICAGO Lollapalooza marks its 10th anniversary in Chicago when it opens for three days starting Friday with a lineup that includes Eminem, Outkast and Kings of Leon. Festival founder and Janes Addiction singer Perry Farrell calls Chicago a beautiful showroom for his annual event. He first brought it to the citys lakefront Grant Park in 2005. This year Lollapalooza features more than 120 bands on eight stages, and as many as 100,000 people are expected to attend each of the three days. Lollapalooza has grown, too, over its years in Chicago, adding food tents with offerings from gourmet chefs and a childrens section. Chicago city leaders say it was a wise decision to let Lollapalooza use the park, both financially and culturally. Tourism officials attribute a $140 million economic impact on the city from last years event.Ventura passage to be cut from bookMINNEAPOLIS The passage from the best-selling memoir American Sniper that sparked former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Venturas defamation lawsuit against author Chris Kyle will be removed, publisher HarperCollins said Wednesday. A federal jury in St. Paul awarded Ventura over $1.8 million in damages on Tuesday, finding that a section of the book defamed Ventura. Kyle, a former Navy SEAL regarded as the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history, wrote that he decked Ventura at a California bar in 2006 after Ventura made offensive comments about SEALs, including that the SEALs deserve to lose a few in Iraq. Ventura, himself a former SEAL and former pro wrestler, testified he never made the statement and that the confrontation never happened. The passage will be removed, HarperCollins spokeswoman Erin Crum told The Associated Press in an email. The publisher did not immediately respond to follow-up questions about how and when it would delete the passage. From wire reports Associated PressNBC announced Wednesday that Allison Williams will play the boy who refused to grow up in NBCs new staging of Peter Pan Live!

But he will be missed. Gary Kuhl, who was county administrator when Thorpe was a county commissioner, was feeling mixed emotions. He deserves to be able to retire and enjoy himself a little, Kuhl said. I personally think hes done a good job and I hate to see him leave. Patti Zub became Thorpes executive assistant just a few months ago. Ive only known him for a short time, Zub said, but hes made it easy to get adjusted to the job. Im looking forward to seeing what the next transition will bring. Hopefully, it will be as smooth as this one has been.

A group of current and former county employees gathered for doughnuts and coffee at the retirement party. THORPEContinued from Page A1BRAD THORPES CAREER Republicans also scoffed at Democratic claims that the lawsuit would be a waste of taxpayers money. What price do you place on the continuation of our system of checks and balances? What price do you put on the Constitution of the United States? said Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich. My answer to each is priceless. Democrats said the lawsuit would go nowhere and was designed only to encourage conservatives to vote in this Novembers congressional elections. Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y. said, The lawsuit is a drumbeat pushing members of the Republican Party to impeachment. In fact, Democrats already are using that argument to mine campaign contributions. In their latest appeal, House Democrats emailed a fundraising solicitation even as debate was underway, saying, Republicans have said this lawsuit has opened the door to impeachment. The appeal asked for support for Democrats who will finally put a stop to the Tea Party crazies and get President Obamas back.

while the other stumbles before doing the same. He had thought he had killed the two people here on this bridge, Indiana Rail Road spokesman Eric Powell told WTHR-TV on Tuesday while reviewing the video footage. ... Both duck at the last minute. Monroe County deputy prosecutor Jeff Kehr told the Herald-Timesof Bloomington that Indiana Railroad officials have turned over evidence to the sheriffs department, which is investigating. Powell said people sometimes follow a trail up to the railroad bridge and trespass on that bridge. Associated PressBLOOMINGTON, Ind.

The incident happened just before sunrise on July 10 on a bridge northeast of Bloomington at Lake Lemon, about 50 miles south of Indianapolis. The engineer of the 100car,14,000-ton coal train activated its emergency brakes when he sawthe women, who began to run.

Women survive ordeal along rail bridge Associated PressSARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. Racing against time, members of a Japanese organization are combing a New York military museums World War II records for information they hope will lead to the graves of American servicemen still listed as missing in action on Saipan. The reason for the urgency: A developer plans to begin construction in the fall on a condominium near the beach where scores of Americans were killed on July 7, 1944, during Japans largest mass suicide attack of the war. Kuentai-USA, a nonprofit group that searches Pacific islands for Japans war dead, found the remains of at least two American fighting men near the construction site in 2011 and 2013, and believes as many as 16 others are buried nearby. This is urgent, said Kuentai-USA founder Usan Kurata, a 58-year-old journalist who is visiting the New York State Military Museum this week with another group leader, both from Kyoto. He said the Japanese organization believes that returning Americans remains to their families is the right thing to do. The Pentagon agency in charge of searching foreign battlefields for Americas dead says about 20 U.S. servicemen are unaccounted for on Saipan, part of the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. commonwealth 1,400 miles from Japan. Maj. Jamie Dobson, a spokeswoman for the Hawaii-based U.S. Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command, said that developers must follow Saipans stringent historic preservation laws and that if a probable burial site is found to be in imminent danger, the U.S. will send a recovery team. Kuentai said it has an agreement with the Russian developer of the condo project to excavate the property for remains, but the group is still awaiting final approval from local authorities. The researchers visit to the U.S. comes 70 years after more than 3,000 Japanese troops launched the assault that killed or wounded more than 900 soldiers in the Armys 105th Regiment, part of the 27th Infantry Division, a former New York National Guard unit. Many of the Americans killed in the banzai attack were from New York state. The museum holds many of the 27th Divisions records, including enlistment cards, rosters, regimental yearbooks, photographs and other documents. Using battlefield photos published in Life magazine in August 1944 and military maps at the National Archives in Washington, Kuentai located a mass grave containing the skeletal remains of nearly 800 Japanese troops. The bones were cremated and the ashes brought back to Japan for burial. During its excavations, the group also discovered the remains of five probable American soldiers. JPAC said two have been identified so far as MIAs from the 105th Regiment, and they were returned for burial in their home states of Kentucky and Pennsylvania. JPAC and the Defense Departments other casualty accounting agency, the Defense POW-MIA Office, are the subject of a Pentagon inspector generals investigation of potential fraud and waste. In March, after The Associated Press reported the failings of the militarys MIA accounting effort, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced a shake-up that includes combining the functions of the two entities into a new agency. Associated PressU.S. Army reinforcement troops make an amphibious landing on the coral reef in July 1944 at Saipan Beach, Mariana Islands. Racing against time, members of a Japanese organization are combing a New York military museums World War II records for information they hope will lead to the graves of American servicemen still listed as missing in action on Saipan. Japanese search US archives for WWII MIA info Associated PressWASHINGTON A former IRS official at the center of the agencys tea party controversy referred to some right-wing Republicans as crazies and more in emails released Wednesday. Lois Lerner headed the IRS division that handles applications for tax-exempt status. In a series of emails with an associate in November 2012, Lerner made two disparaging remarks about some members of the GOP Rep. Dave Camp, R-Michigan, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, released the emails Wednesdayas part of his committees investigation. Congress and the Justice Department are investigating whether the IRS improperly scrutinized applications for tax-exempt status from conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections. In June, the IRS told Congress an untold number of Lerners emails were lost when her hard drive failed in 2011. Despite the lost emails, the IRS says it is providing congressional investigators with 67,000 emails to and from Lerner. In the newly released emails, Lerner was apparently traveling in Great Britain in 2012 when she used her Blackberry to send a series of emails to a personal associate who did not work at the IRS. Camp said Lerner was using her government email account. Lerner tells the person she overheard some women say America was bankrupt and going down the tubes. Well, you should hear the whacko wing of the GOP, replied the person, whose name was blacked out by Camps office. The US is through; too many foreigners sucking the teat; time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end. The right wing radio shows are scary to listen to. Lerner replies: Great. Maybe we are through if there are that many holes. The other person replies: And Im talking about the hosts of the shows. The callers are rabid. Lerner: So we dont need to worry about alien teRrorists. Its our own crazies that will take us down. Ex-IRS chief disparaged conservatives in emails

Interestrates 000IU9Y Stocks flatten out after Fed delivers no surprises Associated PressNEW YORK A cheerful report on the U.S. economy, rising profits and no surprises from the Federal Reserve left the stock market nearly where it started on Wednesday. The news was nearly all good. The government said that the economy grew at a robust 4 percent annual rate this spring. Later in the day, the Federal Reserve did exactly what investors expected. It scaled back its support for the economy, while pledging to keep short term interest rates low for a considerable time after it stops buying bonds. Traders sold U.S. government bonds, pushing the 2-year Treasury note to 0.56 percent, the highest level this year. Its a clear sign bond traders think an improving economy will force the Fed to raise interest rates sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, stock investors were mainly sitting on their hands. Good news is getting to be bad news again, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at BMO Private Bank, referring to the lack of enthusiasm among investors in the stock market. The G.D.P. report is obviously good news, so why are stocks off? Because people are wondering when the party will come to an end. The Standard & Poors 500 index ended with a gain of 0.12 of a point, or 0.01 percent, at 1,970.07. The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 31.75 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 16,880.36. The Nasdaq composite rose 20.20 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,462.90. The Fed announced plans to make further cuts to its monthly bond purchases, a program launched after the financial crisis to encourage borrowing and spending. At the current pace of cutbacks, the Feds bond purchases will end in October. Most economists expect that the Fed could start raising rates next year as the economy improves. A strong report on the economy is always good news for the stock market over the long haul, said Darrell Cronk, Deputy Chief Investment Officer for Wells Fargo Wealth Management. In the near term, though, investors are bound weigh any good news against a possible interestrate move from the Federal Reserve. Id love to get back to where what matters most for the market is the economy not what the latest read is on the Fed, Cronk said. Overall, earnings at U.S. companies have been better than many expected. More than half of the companies in the S&P 500 have reported results for the second quarter, and seven out of 10 have posted higher profits than analysts projected, according to S&P Capital IQ. News of stronger U.S. economic growth sent prices for U.S. government bonds lower. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note jumped to 2.55 percent from 2.46 percent late Tuesday, a huge move in the usually placid bond market. Source: FactSet Data through July 30 outlook.

Owners who resisted hiring after the recession are taking on workers to keep up with rising demand for products and services. Companies began stepping up their hiring pace in the spring. Faulkner Hyundai in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, is adding seven people to its staff of 92 because new cars are selling at their fastest rate in eight years. The market for used cars is also strong. Managers are actually getting involved in selling cars because we dont have enough salespeople, said Paul Selvaggi, president of the dealership and service center. Faulkner has hired a sales manager, its first new employee since the third quarter of last year. Up next: salespeople, workers to service cars and employees who develop new sources of revenue. Small businesses held off hiring until they had enough business to justify taking more risks. As recently as March, an American Express survey found 76 percent of owners planned to hire only when their revenue rose. The ripple effect from growth in construction and consumer spending are feeding the increase, said Susan Woodward, an economist who helps software maker Intuit compile its hiring surveys. The recovery in South Floridas real estate market and economy has allowed Tadd Schwartzs public relations firm to step up its hiring. Schwartz Media Strategies usually hired one or two employees annually the past six years, but in the last three months, hes added three full-time staffers and two interns, putting his payroll at 17. Thats up from 12 staffers a year ago. Schwartz has been confident enough to hire before sealing a deal with new clients. He wants to have enough people on staff to hit the ground running when a contract is signed. We want to position our firm so were not only able to service our clients, but be in a position where we dont have to say no to the right client, he said. Schwartz Medias revenue is up about 16 percent so far in 2014. If Schwartz lands two or three more big accounts, he said he will start recruiting again. Publicity the last few months about Brad Barretts product Grill Grate sent orders for the backyard grill accessory soaring. Barrett, who was cautious while building his 7-year-old company, had six employees including himself and his wife. He expected that to be enough. But orders flooded in faster than expected, and over the Independence Day weekend, the Barretts had to fill orders themselves for their product, which creates a raised grilling surface for backyard grills. Barrett is now looking for two workers for the Cartersville, Georgia, company.

Page A8THURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 Do homework before votingThis should be a fairly easy local political season. Notice how I said should be. Much to my dismay, the mud has started flying on TV. I cant speak for anyone else, but I believe many would agree they would rather hear why a candidate should be elected or re-elected, not backstabbing and nasty name-calling. The commercial never said to vote for a particular candidate, but why we shouldnt vote for a former commissioner or re-elect a current one. Im not up front and center with local politics like I used to be, but I can guarantee I know who is behind the lowblow commercial and the billboard endorsing two candidates in the election. Im sure many of you do, too. It may be perfectly legal what these people have done but I dont like it one bit. In fact, it makes me very angry. I also know exactly what Im going to do about it. Im going to vote and vote very loudly. I hope you will, too. This primary election is way too important to be blas and only worry about the general election in November. We cant let a few people who have the money and mud to sling around determine who you are going to vote for. I know most of the people running for office. I plan to attend a forum or two and find out about the candidates I dont know. I vote in every election, and I also do my homework on the candidates. Please take time to do the same. Katie Lucas Beverly HillsBlood drive a big successI express my sincere thanks for the publicity the Chronicleprovided for our latest blood drive. There was an unprecedented turnout for this time of year to provide the gift of life and share in a wonderful breakfast. In addition, the joint blood ministries of Our Lady of Grace and Knights of Columbus Council 6168 want to thank everyone who donated blood for this important drive. Over 54 pints were collected on site from 57 donors and 5 pints were donated at local Life South locations for a total of 59 pints for this drive. This was an extraordinary turnout for this time of year. We want to extend a special thanks to Les and Joan Magyar and Craven Reality for the delicious breakfast of Belgian waffles with blueberries, strawberriesand cream and eggs and sausage. Their generous and substantial effort was greatly appreciated by all. We also wish to thank all who helped publicize this meaningful community event through publications, church bulletins and word of mouth. These efforts will touch many lives for the better.Len Houle Blood ministry member After more than a year of contentious debate, could Congress be any more divided over the issue of immigration? The answer is yes. In the House, positions are hardening over what to do about the tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied young immigrants illegally crossing the southwestern border into the United States. On one side are Republicans, and a few Democrats, who support changing a 2008 law that makes it impossible to quickly return the young immigrants to their home countries. On the other side is the House Democratic leadership, which after an initial period of waffling is now dead-set against such a change. The House could quickly be headed toward a situation in which one sides top priority is the other sides deal-killer. The 2008 law, formally known as the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, is a measure originally passed to fight sex trafficking of minors. For young people who come to the United States illegally from non-contiguous countries that is, from anywhere other than Canada or Mexico the law establishes an elaborate and very lengthy procedure in which the federal government is required to house the child, bring in experts to determine the childs best interest, unite the child with any family members in the U.S., pay for the childs legal representation and more and only then, years later, to determine whether the child has an actual legal right to be in this country. If, on the other hand, the child has come to the United States from Mexico a contiguous country he or she can be returned within 72 hours. One obvious fix for the current crisis would be to allow the government to treat children from Central America the same way the law allows officials to treat children from Mexico now. That change is expected to be the centerpiece of a report from the House Republican immigration working group, appointed June 24 by Speaker John Boehner. I dont know how you can address the problem down there without looking at the law, Boehner told reporters recently. I dont know how Congress can send more money to the border to begin to mitigate the problem if you dont do something about the law thats being abused and it is being abused. Texas Republican Rep. Kay Granger, who is heading the working group, told a Dallas TV station that the first thing we need to do is to change the 2008 law. To many Democrats, however, that is the last thing we need to do. I do not believe they need a change in legislation to more expeditiously provide due process for all of the children, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said recently. I think this can be done under current law with the proper resources. Pelosis answer to the border influx is to provide more money to care for the illegal immigrants, plus more money for judges to handle their cases, and then more money for lawyers to represent the immigrants before those judges. The goal is to keep as many of the illegal border crossers as possible in the United States and not return them to Central America. If you have a lawyer we have a survey now 50 percent of the time, the child can stay in the U.S., Pelosi said. If you dont have a lawyer, one in 10 times you can stay in the U.S. So representation is important. Pelosis position is shared by many House Democrats, and particularly by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which Pelosi said is taking a leading role in shaping Democratic policy on the crisis. (Caucus members have declared their support for safeguarding the immigrants legal rights to due process provided under our current laws.) The question is whether some Democrats, particularly those from red states facing difficult re-election fights, might break with their partys leadership and support a change in the 2008 law. Boehner needs their help. Even if a border bill includes a change, some Republicans will oppose it on grounds that its too expensive. That means the speaker will need Democratic votes to pass the bill. Its not clear whether hell have enough. I would certainly hope so, Boehner said when asked whether he believes a bill can be passed by next month. But I dont have as much optimism as Id like to have.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

They authorized an invitation to negotiate for a boat ramp and public marina at the barge canal, allowed negotiation with the state Office of Greenways and Trails for a land lease for the passive recreation part of the project, and agreed to hire an interim, as-needed project manager. Port business is conducted by the same cast of characters that runs the countys business, but wearing different hats. The current port director is Brad Thorpe, also the county administrator; he is retiring on Aug. 1. The current port authority board comprises the county commissioners. One commissioner is not running for re-election, and one is being challenged. Thorpe proposed the three actions at the port meeting, his last, acknowledging that he wanted to leave the board with a positive future for the port. His recommendation for the project-basis port manager was Rick Ferrin of TransSystems, the firm that completed the Port Citrus feasibility study. There are several looming concerns with all this. First, there is guaranteed turnover among the port authoritys policy and administrative ranks. At a time when new players are not yet in place, is it the appropriate to move ahead? Another concern is the choice of Rick Ferrin as project manager. To many, it just doesnt look right to hire the guy who wrote the report that says Port Citrus is feasible. Never mind that Ferrin, a professional engineer, has some 40 years of port and marine engineering experience, 14 of them as JAXPORTs executive director. On the other hand, he has a lot at stake in taking on responsibilities in connection with a nascent Port Citrus. TransSystems produced two Port Citrus reports. The preliminary one indicated feasible possibilities for the port; the firm was then directed to do a more indepth analysis. The final report was released in October 2013 and included detailed market identification, description and recommendations on infrastructure and facilities, development and funding, and next steps for port development strategy. Moving forward with the boat ramp and public marina concept which also was promoted in a 1985 Port Citrus Feasibility Study was a recommended step. A close reading of the 51-page final report is instructive. It is harshly realistic about constraints and possibilities for Port Citrus, and how development could proceed and be funded. The port authority has done a poor job of sharing this information and educating Citrus County citizens about what has clearly remained an economic development priority for them. If the information were more widely shared and explained, there might be less suspicion and pushback about almost everything that includes the words port and Citrus in the same sentence.

LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETHURSDAY, JULY31, 2014 A9 000IS7S organ, hoping that would focus his attention. From that moment he was captivated. Smith went on to attend Ball State University on scholarship from the Lilly Foundation, then traveled all over the United States working in churches, playing piano and organ, directing the choir. He also played as an accompanist for a number of singers. Most recently, he was the director of music at The Presbyterian Church at Marion Oaks. At his Woodland Terrace concert earlier this week, one of the songs he played with great flourish was the theme from the movie Forest Gump. He had never heard it before, Mrs. Smith said. He listened to it three times on the radio and then went to the piano and played it. Since then, every time he plays it, its a little different because he improvises with every song and makes it his own. He plays without sheet music, from his memory, from the heart. According to the Alzheimers Foundation of America, people with dementia may not be able to remember names and faces or how to perform everyday tasks, but they remember music. Music is often used as therapy with dementia patients to stimulate cognitive brain function. Every experience weve learned is still there in the back of your mind, and something like music will access memory, said Judith Bescher, assistant director of nursing at Woodland Terrace. Music is one of the things people remember, and music is very important as therapy, especially with people with memory loss. As Smith played, he moved his hands with skill and artistry, as if the old upright piano under his fingertips was a grand piano in a concert hall. With eyes closed, the music took him somewhere other than here. Years ago, while on a trip to Europe, Smith got to play a restored pipe organ in a cathedral in Austria that had been bombed during World War II; he also played organs at a basilica in Germany and a cathedral in Switzerland. Hes dying, Mrs. Smith said. We dont know how much longer he has. But as long as he can, I want him to play music. I want people to know how gifted he is. At the end of his concert, Smith stood up and smiled as people applauded. Thank you for coming to hear me play, he said. I hope you liked it.

PIANOContinued from Page A1 Associated PressBesana Ross, a technician at the Gourmet Rodent, uses ultrasound to look for eggs recently at the Gourmet Rodent in Newberry. It is one of the two largest reptile suppliers in the world, and co-owner Mike Layman says he's in a place to help break down some of the stigma surrounding snakes. Reptile farm supplies snakes worldwide ERINJESTER The Gainesville SunNEWBERRY Less than a mile from downtown Newberry, hidden almost in plain sight, sits a group of unmarked gray warehouse buildings that contain either endless wonders or the stuff of nightmares, depending on how you feel about snakes. The Gourmet Rodent, established in 1986, is a 56,000-square-foot indoor reptile farm that houses 70,000 reptiles at any time, most of them snakes. The compound boasts a hundred different species of snakes, lizards, tortoises and other scaly critters, plus a few dozen scorpions, said co-owner Mike Layman, who bought the business from the original owners with his wife, Betsy, in May. The business also ships frozen feeder rodents hence the name of the business which, while its less fascinating than the snake-breeding part, accounts for about half of the companys revenue, Layman said. In decades past, Layman said, reptile breeders, especially those dealing in snakes, had a tendency to hide in the shadows because of the general publics queasy feeling toward slithery pets. But the Gourmet Rodent is one of the two largest reptile suppliers in the world, and Layman, 40, says hes in a place to help break down some of the stigma surrounding snakes. Weve got nothing to hide, he said. Layman grew up in South Florida and got his love of reptiles from his mother and grandmother, who were involved with the Miami Serpentarium. (They) always just fascinated me, he said. I was always more interested in reptiles than I was in dogs or cats, although he added hes a lover of furry creatures as well. Not the case with Betsy Layman, who said she was terrified of snakes to begin with but grew to accept them as her husband exposed her to them more and more. Nothing ate me in my sleep over the years, she said. Now, she even sports a snake tattoo, although she still prefers her Great Dane, named Andre the Giant Dog. Layman started working at the Gourmet Rodent in 2001, when original owners Bill and Marcia Brant were running the company on a smaller property outside Archer. The Gourmet Rodent moved to its larger, current home in Newberry in 2006. Eventually, Layman said he hopes the business, which occupies four warehouse buildings in a commercial park, will encompass the entire property. It already takes about 75 people to run the operation, including Laymans two sons, Matt and CJ, plus a geneticist/biologist, shippers, tank cleaners, people who feed the animals, people who breed the animals and a man named Besana Ross, who performs ultrasounds on female breeder snakes all day, every day. The Gourmet Rodent ships frozen rodents and living reptiles Monday through Thursday to clients as far away as Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia. The business also has an agreement with a national pet store chain, which Layman declined to name. The Gourmet Rodent supplies all 1,200 of its stores. Trends in reptile keeping in different parts of the world keep the company busy raising multiple popular groups of snakes, Layman said. For example, when ball pythons became the pet to have about a decade ago, he couldnt get anyone to buy snakes like the Mexican black king snake, which falls into the colubridae family with other king snakes, corn snakes and rat snakes. But now that the colubrid market is becoming popular in Asia, Layman said he can barely raise the Mexican black king snakes fast enough to keep up with demand. Snakes are bred in-house, using natural selective breeding, Layman said. Theres no artificial manipulation of the animals genetics by injection. From the time the eggs hatch, workers keep track of the snakes feeding behavior, color and pattern with meticulous colorcoded notes stamped on their plastic pans, which line shelves from floor to ceiling in most of the rooms in the Gourmet Rodents compound. Some snakes are identified as pets from the beginning. Others might hatch with an unusual color expression or pattern and will be kept as breeders. Ball pythons, the most popular species bred onsite, have 3,000 recognized color and pattern mutations. In 2008, the Gourmet Rodent became the first to produce a mutation called the highway ball python, named for the broken yellow line running down the snakes back. The original highway ball python sold for $23,000. The price on those has since fallen, Layman said, and most of the pythons he sells are still priced below a couple hundred dollars. A few of the designer varieties, such as the honeybee and super gravel ball pythons, will still fetch $10,000 out of the egg. Some other species are collected in the wild, then kept for some adjustment time before being sold as pets, such as chameleons and Peters banded skinks, which come from Niger. Layman said if his colony of Peters banded skinks does well, it will be the largest captive-bred colony in the world. While the Gourmet Rodent is a for-profit business, Layman said the most important rule of the company is that animals must be treated with respect and care. They didnt ask to be put in cages, he said, adding that he has fired workers for neglecting to feed mice and mealworms. Its our responsibility to treat them as well as we possibly can.

Condemns shelling of U.N. school Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration condemned the deadly shelling of a United Nations school in Gaza Wednesday, using tough, yet carefully worded language that reflects growing White House irritation with Israel and the mounting civilian casualties stemming from its ground and air war against Hamas. The U.S. frustrations were compounded by a flurry of Israeli media reports this week that appeared aimed at discrediting President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, who spent days trying to negotiate an unsuccessful cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. In unusually blunt language, a State Department spokeswoman on Wednesday repeatedly described one of the reports as complete crap. The developments injected fresh tension into the often fraught relationship between Obama and the Israeli government, while also highlighting the presidents willingness to take a tougher line against the longtime U.S. ally than some of his predecessors or lawmakers on Capitol Hill. While Obama and other top officials consistently state their support for Israels right to defend itself against Hamas rocket fire, the White House has been making increasingly strong statements about the Palestinian civilians dying in Israeli attacks. Officials have also directly called on Israel to do more to prevent the casualties. More than 1,300 Palestinians have been killed in three weeks of fighting, according to the Hamasrun Gaza health ministry. More than 50 Israelis have also died in the clashes. The White House escalated its rhetoric yet again on Wednesday by condemning the shelling of the UN school that was sheltering displaced Palestinians. While the administration did not publicly assign blame for the attack, UN SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon said all available evidence pointed to Israel and the Israeli military acknowledged that it fired back after its soldiers were targeted by mortar rounds launched from the vicinity of the school. We are extremely concerned that thousands of internally displaced Palestinians who have been called on by the Israeli military to evacuate their homes are not safe in UN designated shelters in Gaza, said Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the White Houses National Security Council. She also condemned those responsible for hiding weapons in the United Nations facilities in Gaza a nod to Israels charge that Hamas is housing arms in those facilities. Rally Associated PressA member of the Boilermakers local 154 Pittsburgh holds a sign at a rally to support American energy and jobs in the coal and related industries at Highmark Stadium in downtown Pittsburgh 3 people killed, 3 deputies wounded in N.C. FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. A domestic dispute erupted into a gun battle with deputies Wednesday at a North Carolina mobile home park, leaving three people dead and three officers wounded, officials said. Deputies were called to the Crystal Springs Mobile Home Park southwest of the downtown area for the domestic dispute about 7 a.m., Cumberland County Sheriff Moose Butler told local media outlets. There, he said, gunfire was exchanged with one person, who was among the three killed. Deputies did not immediately say whether the other people died in the domestic dispute or in the shootout. The names of those involved have not been released. One of the injured deputies underwent surgery for gunshot wounds and was in stable condition, Butler said. A second was treated at the scene for a grazing wound. There were no details about the injury to the third officer.Grandma thanks Idaho trooper for traffic stopBOISE, Idaho A woman who got a speeding ticket while on a recent vacation to Idaho wrote a note to the Idaho State Police thanking the trooper for the kindness he showed her grandchildren during the stop. KBOI-TV reported the Idaho State Police shared the note on Wednesday. The woman wrote that Officer Mike Nielsen made the stop a good experience for her grandchildren by talking with them calmly and giving them stickers. She said she wasnt left out and got her very own sticker shock. The letter did not say how much she was fined.Ax crashes through car windshieldTOPSFIELD, Mass. It was a scary moment on a highway north of Boston when an ax smashed through the windshield of a car. Massachusetts State Police say the ax bounced out of a landscapers dump truck at about 11 a.m. Wednesday on southbound Interstate 95 in Topsfield. They released a photo showing the ax with a corner of its blade stuck in the passenger side of the cars dashboard. The handle was sticking through the windshield. Police said the cars passenger was shaken up but not hurt. The truck driver, from Peabody, Massachusetts, was cited for failing to secure the ax, which carries a $200 fine.

A South Korean Defense Ministry official said the North fired two projectiles in the morning and two in the afternoon from a site at Mount Myohyang northeast of Pyongyang. The official spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department rules. Yonhap News agency said some of the projectiles failed to travel far and could have fallen on North Korean land, while others appeared to have reached waters off its east coast. It was the latest in a series of missile and artillery tests carried out by North Korea this year.

Congress cooperates, and fights, as recess nears VA legislation advances Associated PressWASHINGTON Eager to begin a monthlong break, Congress leavened its customary heavy partisanship on Wednesday with a pinch of compromise, advancing legislation to repair the deeply troubled Department of Veterans Affairs and working to clear funds for highway construction at home and missile defense in Israel. Yet old habits proved unbreakable less than 100 days before elections with control of Congress at stake. House Republicans hastened to authorize an official lawsuit accusing President Barack Obama of failing to enforce the health care law. And gridlock loomed on the administrations call for billions to cope with a surge in young immigrants pouring into the U.S. illegally from Central America. Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hating all the time, Obama lectured lawmakers from afar in Kansas City, Missouri, in a speech that was particularly harsh on Republicans. Come on. Lets get some work done together. There was a modest amount of progress on compromise legislation during the day, and hopes in both parties for considerably more before a scheduled adjournment today. On a vote of 420-5, the House overwhelmingly approved a compromise bill to clean up the scandalsoiled VA, where some officials are accused of covering up long delays in patient care. The $16.3 billion measure would allow veterans to get outside care if they live too far from a VA health facility or face a delay of longer than 30 days in getting an appointment. It also includes money to hire new doctors and allows the fast-track firing of senior officials found to be complicit in hiding agency shortcomings. The legislation was a compromise between the House and Senate one of few in the Congress that convened 18 months ago with less money than Democrats wanted and a significant concession from conservative Republicans as well. It would raise federal deficits by $10 billion, one of very few times since tea party-aligned lawmakers came to power that the House has agreed to new spending without also insisting on offsetting cuts elsewhere in the budget. Concerns about future costs prompted the conservative Club for Growth to oppose the bill. It creates an unproven new entitlement that sets taxpayers on a course to spend half a trillion dollars over the next decade, the organization said. Even so, a final vote was expected today in the Senate. The path was bumpy even for one of the items on the bipartisan must-do list. Legislation to assure uninterrupted funds for highway and bridge construction was stalled at least temporarily in a lastminute dispute between the House and Senate. Aides in both houses expressed confidence it would be resolved in time for final approval today.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Outdoors/B4 Football/ B4 Wheeler, Mets blow out Phillies./ B2 SPORTSSection BTHURSDAY, JULY 31, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Quarterback questions abound in SEC Who will take over with big names gone? Associated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. Quarterback battles and signal-caller questions abound in the Southeastern Conference going into preseason camps around the league. Big names, not so much. Division favorites Alabama and South Carolina will be banking on new starters. Ditto for Texas A&M, Georgia and defending East Division champion Missouri. So long, Johnny Manziel, Aaron Murray and AJ McCarron et al. Hello, little-known new guys. The biggest name returning at quarterback is Auburns Nick Marshall, himself an unproven commodity this time last year. The biggest stars are gone, but Georgia coach Mark Richt says that doesnt necessarily signal a big drop-off. Some guys are going to have a chance to make a name for themselves, Richt said. How many seasons start out where you dont know what a guys going to do? Even (Florida States) Jameis Winston, Johnny Football, their first year of starting, all of a sudden they win the Heisman. So anything can happen with a guy who gets his opportunity. I wouldnt count out the quarterbacks in this league to play great. First, some of those candidates for greatness must win the starting job. Others have already risen to No. 1 after biding their time. South Carolina and Georgia have fifth-year seniors finally getting their shots. The Gamecocks Dylan Thompson supplied a few big highlights during his time as Connor Shaws backup. Georgias Hutson Mason started a win over Georgia Tech and then put up big numbers in a loss to Nebraska in the Gator Bowl after Murrays season-ending knee injury. Missouri sophomore Maty Mauk started four games in place of an injured James Franklin last season, throwing 11 touchdown passes against two interceptions. Tampa Bay starting pitcher David Price delivers Wednesday during the seventh inning of an interleague game against Milwaukee in St. Petersburg. The Rays lost 5-0. With the trade deadline today, Price is one of the most sought-after pitchers in the league.Associated Press Riley speaks out, insists Heat will be competitive Associated PressMIAMI One of the last things Miami Heat President Pat Riley told LeBron James before free agency began this summer was that he would be selling potential players on the notion of playing alongside a four-time NBA MVP And James never made him think otherwise, Riley said until roughly the same moment that the entire world was made aware of his plan to go home. Riley made that revelation Wednesday, shortly after the Heat completed the signing of Chris Bosh to a $118 million, five-year contract and essentially wrapped up their roster-rebuilding project for next season, the first of the post-LeBron era in Miami. The Heat have 12 players locked in for next season, Bosh and Dwyane Wade foremost among them, and Riley expects the four-time defending Eastern Conference champions to compete once again this coming year. But much of his first session offering in-depth remarks about free agency revolved, predictably, about James the MVP who got away. I went into it with the thought and the notion that he was coming back and I was selling that to players, Riley said. I believed that firmly so I was selling that to players. And thats the only way I went into it. I let him know that. He never said to me, No, dont do that. Riley, however, noted that he did not feel misled by James during free agency. James is now back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that he left for Miami in 2010, four trips to the NBA Finals and two championships ago. The Heat scrambled quickly to move on to Plan B, locking up Bosh (whose signing was agreed to weeks ago) and Wade before long and avoiding what could have been an absolute disaster otherwise. Riley said hes become energized by the task of building a champion again. Miami preaches togetherness Dolphins credo on T-shirts after bullying scandal Associated PressDAVIE The Miami Dolphins, rocked by a bullying scandal last season, are now wearing T-shirts bearing a credo of togetherness that was coined by the players. One by one some of the members of the offense and defense removed their shoulder pads Wednesday and changed into the new gray shirt. On the back was a list of 10 sayings bordered by the words I am a Miami Dolphin that encompass their approach to the upcoming season. Among the sayings that bring to mind last years scandal involving former offensive linemen Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin is this one. If I see something I will say something I commit to call it as it is. Head coach Joe Philbin applauded the gesture made by his players. I think the best way to do things is to give them some ownership and let them feel like Im not coming down from the mountaintop and saying this is a must and this is a mandate, Philbin said. I thought they did a good job. I thought they gave some consideration and some thought to it and I think its good. Probably Im a professional, is one of them I like. But I think I like them all. Theyre all good, but that one sticks to me. Its kind of all encompassing, entails a lot. A T-shirt is displayed Wednesday at the Miami Dolphins training camp in Davie.

Worley is battling teammates Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman to be the starting quarterback. See QB QUESTIONS/ Page B3 Associated PressST. PETERSBURGIf David Price was making his last start for the Tampa Bay Rays, he went out quietly Wednesday. Price lost for the first time since June 20 to end his winning streak at six, allowing four runs and seven hits over seven innings in the Rays 5-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. After the loss, Price claimed he thought Thursdays trade deadline was actually Wednesday. The left-hander said he will be playing golf today when the 4 p.m. deadline passes. And I keep my phone in my bag when I play golf, Price said, adding that he expects to be with the Rays for their next game Friday. Yovani Gallardo gave up four hits in seven innings, Martin Maldonado tied a career high with four RBIs and the NL Central-leading Brewers avoided a threegame sweep. Gallardo (6-5) retired 13 in a row at one point, en route to moving past Ben Sheets into sole possession of fifth place on the Brewers career list with 87 wins. Price dropped to 11-8. David didnt have his greatest stuff but he was still really good. His fastball was a really good pitch today, Rays manager Joe Maddon said. We just have to score a couple points and he gets the win. The Rays lost for just the second time in their last 13 games. A victory Wednesday would have lifted Tampa Bay (53-55) to .500 for the first time since late April. Maddon said he also expects Price to remain with the Rays past the deadline. Obviously, if you were to lose some really important players and some friends, that would be difficult, Maddon said, but we are in a business. Weve done it before and weve survived. Id much prefer that he was here. Maldonado put the Brewers up 2-0 with a two-run single in the second, an inning that included two walks. It was just the second time this season Price walked a pair in the same inning. After Aramis Ramirez had a third-inning run-scoring single, Maldonado made it 4-0 when he drove in a run with a double in the sixth. Maldonado got his third hit on an RBI single in the eighth. Gallardo won for the first time since beating Arizona on June 19 to stop a six-start winless streak. Jeremy Jeffress gave up two of his three hits in the ninth before Zach Duke walked Logan Forsythe to load the bases with two out. Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez entered and got his 31st save by striking out Yunel Escobar. Price had gone eight or more innings in eight of his previous nine starts. He missed a chance to become the first Rays pitcher to win six games in a month.ON DECKBrewers: RHP Wily Peralta (12-6) is scheduled to face Cardinals RHP Adam Wainwright (13-5) in the start of a three-game series between two of the top NL Central teams Friday night in St. Louis.

The Mets sent 10 men to the plate in the seventh inning, scoring five insurance runs off the Philadelphia bullpen to take two of three in the series. Wheeler (6-8) gave up two runs and seven hits with four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer in six outings in a row. After the Phillies went up 1-0 in the top of the fifth, New York quickly responded with Wheeler helping himself at the plate.AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 6, Red Sox 1BOSTON Mark Buehrle pitched 6 2/3 innings to earn his first win in almost two months and Dioner Navarro had three hits and three RBIs to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to their fifth consecutive victory, a 6-1 win over the slumping Boston Red Sox. Buehrle (11-7) allowed one run on six hits and a walk to snap a six-game losing streak that matched the longest of his career. He had not won in nine starts since June 1. Toronto has won eight of its last nine games and trails first-place Baltimore by 2 1/2 games. Brandon Workman (1-4) fell behind quickly after being called up from Triple-A to replace trade bait Jon Lester. The All-Star left-hander was originally scheduled to start for Boston, but he was scratched while his name is bandied about ahead of Todays trade deadline.

Brett Gardner led off the game with a homer for the second straight night, after homering twice in the seriesopening loss for New York. The Rangers had lost seven consecutive series since taking two of three against Minnesota from June 27-29. Texas went ahead to stay with three runs in the first off Hiroki Kuroda (7-7). Elvis Andrus had an RBI double and scored the tiebreaking run on a single by Adrian Beltre, who came home on Leonys Martins single. Lewis (7-8) allowed four hits, including solo homers to Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. The right-hander struck out four and walked two, and New York didnt have another runner after Carlos Beltrans two-out single in the third.Astros 8, Athletics 1HOUSTON Dallas Keuchel pitched a four-hitter and Robbie Grossman homered to cap a six-run first inning that sent the Houston Astros over the Oakland Athletics 8-1. Keuchel (10-7) pitched his fourth complete game of the season, tying Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead. The Astros won the series from the AL West-leading Athletics. Marc Krauss beat out Oaklands try for a double play in the first, and the Astros went on to match a season high for runs in an inning. Keuchel (10-7) struck out five and walked three. Josh Donaldson hit his 23rd homer for Oaklands only run. Jason Hammel (0-4) remained winless in four starts since the As acquired him with pitcher Jeff Samardzija from the Cubs earlier this month. Hammel was 8-5 before the trade.Indians 2, Mariners 0CLEVELAND Corey Kluber had three-hitter to outpitch Felix Hernandez for his first career shutout, Yan Gomes had a two-run double and the Cleveland Indians beat the Seattle Mariners 2-0. The matchup between two of the top pitchers in the American League lived up to its billing. Kluber (11-6) held the Mariners to three singles and no walks while striking out eight. Hernandez (11-3) didnt allow a base runner until Carlos Santana drew a leadoff walk in the fifth. Gomes capped the rally with a bases-loaded double. Hernandez, who gave up four hits, was pulled after the seventh. He has allowed two runs or fewer and pitched at least seven innings in 14 consecutive starts, a major league record.Orioles 4, Angels 3BALTIMORE Kevin Gausman pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, Adam Jones homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 for their seventh win in nine games. Gausman (5-3) retired the first 14 batters he faced. The rookie allowed three runs and three walks in his first career start against the Angels. Darren ODay struck out two in a perfect eighth and Zach Britton gave up a single in the ninth before earning his 21st save. The victory lifted the AL East-leading Orioles to 14 games over .500 (6046) for the first time July 22, 2013. Garrett Richards (11-4) gave up four runs and six hits in seven innings. It was his second straight defeat following a seven-game winning streak.Tigers 7, White Sox 2DETROIT Max Scherzer pitched seven impressive innings, and the Detroit Tigers scored six runs in the first inning en route to a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Nick Castellanos hit a three-run homer in the first and added an RBI single in the seventh for the Tigers, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Scherzer (13-3) allowed a run and five hits. He struck out six and walked one. Detroit allowed seven runs in the seventh in an 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday night, but this time the big inning belonged to the Tigers. Hector Noesi (5-8) allowed six runs and 10 hits in six innings. Chicago slugger Jose Abreu singled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to 19 games. He has hit safely in 37 of his last 38 games. Adam Dunn homered for the White Sox.NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 4, Marlins 3MIAMI Tanner Roark won his fourth consecutive start and the Washington Nationals averted a series sweep by snapping the Miami Marlins six-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory. For the fourth start in a row, Roark (11-6) allowed one run in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 2.74. Drew Storen allowed two runs in the ninth before retiring Reid Johnson on a forceout with two on for the final out to earn his first save since August 2013. Manager Matt Williams didnt call on closer Rafael Soriano, who hasnt pitched since he blew a threerun ninth-inning lead in Washingtons loss Monday. Jayson Werth, back in the lineup after missing one start because of a sore right ankle, put the Nationals ahead to stay with a sacrifice fly in their three-run eighth. Denard Span stole two bases and scored twice.Diamondbacks 5, Reds 4CINCINNATI Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer that kept Alfredo Simon winless since the All-Star game, and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4, taking a series between two teams struggling to score runs. Goldschmidts 19th homer off Simon (12-6) gave the Diamondbacks two of three in the series. Simon has gone 0-3 since his first All-Star selection. Didi Gregorius added a two-run homer in the ninth. The Reds fell to 2-10 since the All-Star break. Devin Mesoracos three-run homer in the ninth off Addison Reed ended a streak of 11 straight games with three runs or fewer, Cincinnatis longest such stretch of futility since 1967.Giants 7, Pirates 5SAN FRANCISCO Reliever Jean Machi and the San Francisco Giants took advantage of a huge baserunning blunder by Pittsburgh, tagging out two runners who wandered away on the same play and beating the Pirates 7-5 to end a sixgame losing streak. San Francisco stopped a skid that matched its longest of the season, and avoided the clubs first winless homestand of at least seven games in the 15-year history of AT&T Park. The Pirates, who had won three in a row, led 5-4 in the sixth when Chris Stewart drew a one-out walk with runners on second and third. Machi (6-0) got the ball back and noticed Travis Snider had left second base, apparently thinking it was a bases-loaded walk. Machi threw to shortstop Brandon Crawford to trap Snider. Crawford returned the ball to Machi, who fired to third baseman Pablo Sandoval to get Gaby Sanchez as he tried to go home. AL Associated PressNew Yorks Daniel Murphy hits a fifth-inning, three-run, home run Wednesday off Philadelphias starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick in New York.

Youve got to have two or three quarterbacks ready, and I was ready. Maybe I wasnt mentally fully up with it. I knew this was my opportunity and I took it. They put me in great situations. Now, hes in another good one as Franklins heir. The most experienced returning quarterback is Mississippis Bo Wallace, whose 6,340 career passing yards trails only Eli Manning at the school. Mississippi States Dak Prescott, Arkansas Brandon Allen and Floridas Jeff Driskel are also back. Driskel, whos 12-3 as a starter, missed most of last season with a broken leg. Other teams quarterback competitions are carrying into August, and several could include freshman contenders:Alabama appears to have a twoman race to replace McCarron, the 2013 Heisman Trophy runner-up. Blake Sims was shaky in the spring game and Florida State transfer Jacob Coker is the presumed front-runner. But Coker, Winstons former backup, will have to play catch-up since he didnt report to Tuscaloosa until the summer after graduating. Those two are just two different type of quarterback, Crimson Tide receiver Christion Jones said. Alabamas probably never seen those two, no matter whos the starting quarterback between them. Theres no comparison to any other quarterback.Texas A&M also should have no shortage of playmakers but scant experience at quarterback. Sophomore Kenny Hill and freshman Kyle Allen, who went through spring practice, are vying to replace Manziel, the 2012 Heisman winner. Kyle Allen was one of the Aggies prized recruits, but few matched the razzle-dazzle of Manziel as a scrambler and runner. Left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi insists the basic formula doesnt change. Same offense. Same plays, Ogbuehi said. Pass the ball. Run the ball. Its all the same.LSU freshman Brandon Harris, also a January enrollee, and sophomore Anthony Jennings are competing to replace Zach Mettenberger. Harris accounted for three passing touchdowns and one rushing score in the spring game. It will be a very competitive event from the start to the finish, LSU coach Les Miles said.New Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason will likely choose between Patton Robinette, redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary and LSU transfer Stephen Rivers. Mason said hes not ruling out three other potential candidates.Patrick Towles and Maxwell Smith are vying to claim the job at Kentucky, where last years primary starter Jalen Whitlow transferred. Plus, highly recruited freshman Drew Barker and Reese Phillips are waiting in the wings.Tennessees Justin Worley, Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman are vying to lead an offense that ranked 13th in the league in passing. All three started at least one game in 2013. QB QUESTIONSContinued from Page B1 Team first, too. Maybe I like team first better. Im trying to picture the T-shirt. Considering that Philbin has come up with plenty of his own rules, he joked that some of the players think he has too many and that hes a little stiff. He had approached a group of veterans during the offseason to emphasize his desire for them to take ownership of the team. The idea for an official credo came naturally. Defensive end Cameron Wake, a three-time Pro Bowler, had showed off a T-shirt last year in the locker room that he and other members of the defense designed specifically for defensive players. That one was adorned with the words Respect The Brotherhood on the back surrounding a military style logo, so he was probably a good person to go to with the new shirt. Fellow defensive lineman Jared Odrick also was one of the players approached by Philbin. I think it means a lot, Odrick, a first-round draft pick in 2010, said of the T-shirts. I think it gives us a visualization, something that we see every day, to try to embody every day in the locker room and onto the field. Its something that helps because youre there reading on everybodys shirt. And its words that weve actually said. Its words that have come out of our mouths. Notes: Wide receiver Mike Wallace and center Sam Brenner both were kept out of practice. Brenner was carted off the field Tuesday during practice. The two players joined Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey and free agent running back Knowshon Moreno as spectators. Pouncey is recovering from hip surgery that is expected to cost him at least the first month of the regular season and Moreno is coming off of knee surgery. DOLPHINSContinued from Page B1 We are up to the challenge, Riley said. Were going to be as competitive as anybody, I think, in the Eastern Conference. I feel great, right now, today, making sure that we got Chris signed, got him under contract, and got D-Wade back and Udonis (Haslem) and the core of our foundation and well go from here. Before he announced his decision, James and his inner circle summoned Riley and Heat general manager Andy Elisburg to Las Vegas for a meeting. Riley and Elisburg left believing they had done well. A day later, James was meeting with Sports Illustrated, collaborating on the first-person essay that would come out and announce his decision to return to Cleveland. The Heat were told of the contents of that essay moments before it was released publicly. I dont get hurt, Riley said. This is business. This is all business. As soon as something happens in this business, I had to react, we had to react as an organization, and we did. Riley said Wednesday that once the Heat learned that James was leaving, it was too late to get involved in the pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, who wound up re-signing with the New York Knicks. Still, it was more than a salvage project. Wade and Bosh are both likely Hall of Fame players. The Heat wound up with some of their top freeagent targets in players like Luol Deng and Josh McRoberts, both of whom Riley raved about about. Perhaps most importantly, the Heat not only figure to be good enough to compete now, but have the flexibility financially for Riley to go out in the already-anticipated free-agent summer of 2016 and try to build what he did when he got James, Wade and Bosh to team up. And instead of blasting James as Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert did when he left Cleveland in 2010 the Heat have taken the high road, with managing general partner Micky Arison writing an open letter to fans this week reminding them that even without James, the franchises goal of winning more titles hasnt changed. Were going to try to make it another generational team, Riley said. HEATContinued from Page B1 Indians trade Justin Masterson to CardinalsCLEVELAND Justin Masterson began the season as the Indians ace. Hell end it with a different team in a different league. The Indians traded the disappointing Masterson on Wednesday to the St. Louis Cardinals, a deal that will allow Cleveland to get something in return for the right-hander who was in his final year under contract. In exchange for Masterson, who was scheduled to come off the disabled list later this week, the Indians got outfielder James Ramsey. A first-round pick by the Cardinals (No. 23 overall) in 2012, Ramsey has spent this season at Double-A Springfield, where he batted .300 with 13 homer and 36 RBIs. Masterson has underperformed this season. He started Clevelands opener but failed to live up to expectations following a 14-10 season and after he turned down a contract extension from the club during spring training. Masterson is 4-6 with a 5.51 ERA in 19 starts this season and has had a noticeable loss in velocity. In five starts before being placed on the DL with right knee inflammation, he allowed 19 runs and 27 hits in 18 innings. Masterson was acquired by the Indians at the trading deadline in 2009 in the deal that sent catcher Victor Martinez. Before Tuesdays series opener against Seattle, Masterson said he wouldnt be surprised if the Indians made any moves but he was hoping to stay and help them make a playoff push. The trade of Masterson could be followed by other moves by the Indians, who entered Wednesday 6 1/2 games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central and in a scramble with five other teams for the leagues second wild-card spot. Masterson went 48-61 with Cleveland.Nadal out of tournaments because of right wristRafael Nadal is withdrawing from hard-court tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati because of a right wrist injury, putting his status in doubt for a title defense at the U.S. Open. His manager announced the withdrawals Wednesday. The Toronto tournament begins Monday; the Cincinnati tournament starts Aug. 11. Those two events would have represented Nadals hard-court preparation for the U.S. Open, which begins Aug. 25. The Spaniard, currently No. 2 in the ATP rankings, won his second championship at Flushing Meadows in 2013. That is part of his collection of 14 Grand Slam titles, tied with Pete Sampras for second in the history of mens tennis, trailing only Roger Federers record of 17.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

The catches for the hardpulling gags have been worth it. If you dont have numbers to start with, a tip is to troll until you have a hookup. Its a deadly way to start things off and find em. Another good hint, and remember this, is to start where you see crab traps they put em down there for a reason. Then mark the spot upon a hookup, keep trolling, catch another, mark the spot, and so on, until you create a pattern, then you can go back and try for a few more anchored, off the bottom. Trout are still in the shallows. Dont sleep in, and get out early. Try your favorite top water plugs in real shallow water. Find the baitfish, rock grass or sargasm grass and trout will be amongst em. If tops dont do it, then go subsurface with a jerk bait like assasins, or riptides gulf or flats chub. And one thing Ive found to definitely add an advantage to these is Woodies Rattles. Remember, Ive said that fish go by three things: Sight, sound, and smell. Its a proven fact that even a blind fish can survive by just sound. Well, this is for sure the sound advantage. The hard plastic rattle chambers come in clear, glow, red and black. Its a small but loud rattle chamber insert that can easily be shoved in any of your favorite plastics to add sound to your arsenal. Now every lure can have sound attractiveness. They even have em already attached to the hook. It can be that little edge you need for those hot lethargic fishing days. Give em a try, you wont be dissatisfied! If your favorite B & T doesnt stock em, ask em to. Or go online at woodiesrattlers.com. Reds are on one day, off the next. Work the leeward sides of the islands and never pass up throwing around any mullet. I hear people say, Oh thats just mullet. So what? If you were hungry and had a choice would you want to be in a desert, or near a buffet? Youre not always going to see that red or trout swimming behind those mullet. However, more times than not, weve taken reds and trout around mullet schools. Never pass up the opportunity to cast around em. Reds and Trout are just waiting to make an easy meal out of an injured or stray loner. Shellcracker and bluegills are really taking up the offerings anglers are throwing at em. Im seeing hoards of minnow schools working towards the shorelines in the lakes. And the panfish are on their heals at Hernando, Floral City pool and Croft lakes, to name a few. Take advantage of these scrappy, fine-eating fish while the getting is good. Capt. Rick BurnsFISHING REPORT RICK BURNS /For the ChronicleCapt. Jeff Mauldin shows off his 25-1/2-inch Homosassa top water trout. Associated PressRENTON, Wash. As Walter Jones started going through names to give his induction speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he constantly came back to his son Walterius. The youngster was with him in New York during Super Bowl week when Jones found out hed be honored in his first year of eligibility, and just the third player having spent their entire career with Seattle Seahawks to be inducted. It felt only right to have the 14-year-old give the speech. Talk about a unique summer vacation project. When I asked him if he wanted to present me he was like, Well, theres nobody else thats going to do it, Jones said. Hes been with me throughout this whole process, so he was an easy answer to present me. Regarded as one of the games best offensive tackles ever, Jones will get his gold jacket Saturday night and add to a year that has seen the Seahawks reach the pinnacle of the NFL. The party in New York in February didnt stop with Jones being voted into the Hall of Fame on his first try. That was just the beginning. A day later, he was at MetLife Stadium to watch Seattles 43-8 rout of Denver to claim its first championship. It was a moment Jones was hoping to experience as a player in February 2006 when Seattle reached its only other Super Bowl, losing to Pittsburgh. A championship is about the only thing missing from Jones extensive resume. When I came into the league, I wasnt thinking about, Man, I want to be in the Hall of Fame. As you play the game, you watch guys. You say, Thats the way I want to play the game of football, Jones said. For me, its all about respect. You always go back to the word respect. Even guys that dont play the game of football or just an average fan when they watch the game of football, they can say, OK, I respect what Walters doing out there. Jones was deemed special when he was selected with the No. 6 overall pick of the 1997 draft coming out of Florida State. He was a unique combination of size and power, but also speed and fluidity for a man who stood at 6-foot-5 and 325 pounds. His offseason workouts became folklore, pushing Cadillac Escalades as part of his regimen and usually during some sort of contract dispute. Yet he showed up for every season opener, whether he was unhappy with his contract or not. Jones was selected to nine Pro Bowls. He was a four-time All-Pro. Mike Holmgren, who coached the Seahawks from 19992008, once called Jones the best offensive player he has ever coached. Its a heady statement considering Holmgren coached Joe Montana, Brett Favre, Steve Young and Jerry Rice during his career. Jones wanted to be like Anthony Munoz. And like Munoz before him, Jones became the standard for the next generation of offensive linemen. I think its a situation of setting the standard for how you want to play the game of football, Jones said. For me, I tried to do that every time I stepped on the football field. It just validates the things you did on the football field. So when people see you now, people say, Oh, thats the Hall of Famer Walter Jones. Thats something that makes you say I did it the right way, Jones said. When young kids go look at film, your name is talked about. So I think thats something that has changed. From Day 1 when I got in the league, I wanted to establish the standard that I set. I wanted to be a guy that when you talk about offensive linemen, I wanted my name to come up. Seattles coaches once put together the numbers that helped state the dominant level at which Jones played: He blocked for more than 5,500 pass plays in his career and gave up just 23 sacks and was called for holding just nine times in 180 career games all starts. Jones is revered in Seattle in a way usually reserved for skill position players. Its a statue of Jones that stands outside the Seahawks-themed bar at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. His No. 71 was retired the day he retired, while Steve Largent (No. 80) and Cortez Kennedy (No. 96) had to wait for their entry to Canton before their numbers were raised. Getting a gold jacket and to be a part of that team, man, its just amazing, Jones said. Then to be a part of Seattle, its just amazing to represent the city of Seattle, man. Its just amazing. I started there and I ended there. Its a lot of stuff that goes on. Associated PressSeattle Seahawks offensive tackle WalterJones smiles along the sidelines Aug. 15, 2006, during training camp at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Wash.

JULIANNEMUNN Chronicle food writerining cars on longdistance trains are a big part of the fun when traveling the rails, but you can have almost the same experience at one of Citrus Countys newest restaurants, The Breakfast Station. And you wont have to wait for the all aboard call from the conductor to step into a glimpse of past railroad glory. Located on U.S. 19 in the Sweetwater Plaza, about 3 1/2 miles south of Homosassa Springs, early risers will find an amazing variety of items including a twist on French toast, a signature railroad favorite. Owner/manager Chris Zahringer said his eaterys Crunch Toast is a specialty that quickly became a high-demand breakfast dish. The never-soggy toast is quickly deep fried with a cornflake crunch coating that holds fast until the last delicious bite. But thats just part of the extensive menu at this very popular restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch all day from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. If youve never had the excitement and adventure of a trip on the Sunset Limited, Santa Fe Super Chief or Zephyr, this railroad-themed restaurant might make you long to explore the country by rail. For breakfast, you can choose from such menu items as The Conductor with a 6ounce steak, two eggs, potatoes or grits, homemade biscuit or three dollar-size pancakes for $7.95; the Casey Jones with biscuits and sausage gravy for $3.95 or $5.50; Train Tracks with two genuine, seasoned potato cakes with applesauce or sour cream for $5.75; or The Hobo with corned beef hash, two eggs, choice of potatoes or grits and pancakes or biscuit. And thats just for starters. The Locomotive is a Belgian waffle with or without bacon or sausage; French toast stuffed with cream cheese and topped with fruit; The Engineer that includes ham steak and choice of sides; and Eggs Benedict, all sorts of omelets and a variety of beverages. The lunch menu is just as varied and interesting, with special entrees that change daily. Everything is made on the premises, Zahringer said. Some of the customer favorites include the open-face roast beef plate, the Seaboard fish and chips, reuben and Box Car Club sandwiches. From the Cattle Car comes an assortment of burgers. Salads are served with Caboose Crispers and salsa. All lunches include choice of a side dish. Zahringer said the Homosassa venue is the fifth of six franchised Breakfast Stations, a group which was founded 20 years ago in Spring Hill by entrepenuer Cash Smith.

CARLYZERVIS CorrespondentFlorida may not have much of a winter for enjoying traditional winter foods (chili, stews and other warm, heavy comfort foods), but it certainly has a summer. The long, hot days filled with swimming, boating, sports and yard work make for a more quiet appetite come dinner time, and Florida fortunately abounds with fresh summer foods for our enjoyment. Many come straight from nature, both sea and land scallops, fish, crab, watermelon, mangos, avocados and passion fruit, to name but a few. But where to procure these fine local delicacies? One such place is Pecks Old Port Cove. Located at nearly the end of Ozello Trail, a winding, tricky road that moseys through gorgeous ranges of sawgrass and palms, Pecks has been a Citrus County staple for more than 30 years. Reading reviews makes it easy to see why: We always go to Pecks when we visit up that way, said one visitor. Cannot say enough about the great fresh food. Another touts the casual, come-as-you-are atmosphere: Great food, casual environment. You feel at home and can truly relax and enjoy yourself. Many mention the trek (We were out on a weekend drive to nowhere and stumbled on Pecks ) but all agree: Its worth the trip. Jessica Pierce, Pecks kitchen manager, said their most popular dish is usually the grouper, which comes prepared in a variety of ways (blackened, fried and on a sandwich), but the seasonal scallops and homemade crab cakes are top sellers, as well. They also offer steaks and chicken dinners, as well as more seafood shrimp, softshell crab, oysters, gator, catfish, snow crab and if you cant make up your mind platters that encompass a range of choices. Pecks also boasts a new covered outdoor seating area looking out on the water, which makes for a pleasant, shady dining experience.Pecks Old Port Cove is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, and is at 139 N. Ozello Trail. They can be reached by phone at 352-795-2806. A more recent addition to the Citrus County seafood scene is the Seafood Seller and Caf. Located in the Crystal River Mall, the restaurant offers two dining experiences in one: one side, facing the food court, serves as a food counter, offering baskets with seafood sandwiches and burgers with fries; the other side is a full-service restaurant, with booths, tables and a bar. Decorated as it is in purple, green and gold, its immediately obvious that this is a Louisiana-style joint. Its owner, Jimmy Stoltz, hails from Baton Rouge, but has been in Florida since 1978. He opened the Seafood Seller and Caf in June of last year and has been humming along ever since: We havent even advertised since we opened, he said. His success could be due to a variety of factors, but undoubtedly his approach to seafood is high on the list. We cook right out of the fish case, he said, so everything is fresh. I cut all my own fish. Its true: He brought out a whole, fresh black grouper to prove it and occasionally wanders out to the bar to chat, carrying a live crawfish in hand. The menu is decidedly Cajun inspired, and boasts fried green tomatoes; two kinds of gumbo (seafood and chicken and sausage); catfish, crawfish, shrimp, gator, scallop and oyster po boys; various preparations of catfish; chicken and alligator sausage jambalaya; and crawfish touff and thats about half the list. Its not fast food, Stoltz said, but its real food.Seafood Seller and Caf is open for lunch and dinner, and is in the Crystal River Mall (near the movie theater) at 1801 U.S. 19. They can be reached by phone at 352-228-4936. Fine fresh seafoods satisfy summer appetites CARLY ZERVIS/For the ChroniclePecks Old Port Cove, at the end of Ozello Trail, is well worth the drive for fresh seafood.

C2THURSDAY, JULY31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFLAIRFORFOOD VOTE HERO For Your FavoriteHealthcare 000IRK1 Our Partners: www.chronicleonline.com/healthcareheroesATTENTION CITRUS COUNTYThe Nominations Are In Read About the Healthcare Heroes August 9 What is it that constitutes a great wine? I know serious wine friends who are spending a lifetime working to answer this question. These men and women are ever on the lookout for a label so special, so beyond the everyday pale, as to set it apart, like a Michael Jordan or the Mona Lisa. Robert Parker, the American dean of wine critics and the man responsible for the 100-point scoring system, holds seminars featuring the tasting of his 100-point perfect wines, at $2,500 for the event, and thats without travel and hotel, or dining-out expenses. I would love to attend one of these spectacular tastings just to sample a dozen perfect wines. I wonder if Mr. Parker would refund me some money for any entries scoring less than perfect on my private gauging system. But joking aside, lets set up some benchmarks for what makes a wine great or even near great in the eyes of professional beholders. What follow are the standards in the words of this Emperor of Wines (a title awarded Parker by author Elin McCoy in her good book of the same name). Consider these benchmarks: The ability to please both the palate and the intellect. Its got to taste great on a hedonistic level, but it also has to make us think. In other words, such wines must have compound dimensions and have more to contemplate than basic tastes and aromas. Complexity and multilevels of taste come to mind. The ability of a wine to offer intense aromas and flavors without heaviness. Parker is saying he doesnt want any part of the wine taste to accost us. All the elements should be balanced. Forget about in-your-face power by sacrificing muscle, what he calls oafish feel and rustic tannic, for intensity without bombast. Obviously, Parker prefers French subtlety over what some people refer to as fruit bombs. The ability of a wine to taste better with each sip. The last glass of wine in the bottle should be the best, not an easy task since oxygen (air) works to reduce or moderate flavors. Actually, most wines need a few minutes to open up, as when I wake up in the morning. The ability of a wine to improve with age. One of the legacies of European wine writers of the past decades is that for a wine to be exceptional when mature, it had to be rough when young. This means simply if a wine is too soft and ready while youthful in the barrel, it will not develop nuances with age. This is plainly not true. Ninety-five percent of the worlds wines today are ready to drink as soon as they are bottled. According to Parker, a great wine will have improved or survived with proper aging up to 10 or even 20 or more years before it explodes into greatness. The ability of a wine to offer a singular personality. What does this mean? The best way is to quote the man because this remark kind of boggles ones intelligence. Parker says, the opulent, sumptuous qualities of the 1982 and 1990 red Bordeaux, the rugged tannin and immense age ability of the 1986 red Bordeaux, the seamless, perfectly balance of 1994 Napa and Sonoma cabernet sauv ignons (one for the Americans), and the plush sweet fruit, high alcohol and glycerin of the 1990 Barolo and Barbaresco all of these are examples of what he refers to as vintage individuality. Over many years, Robert Parker published his wine review, the Wine Advocate. It carried no advertising, was not slick in appearance and yet it captured the worldwide attention of people who were true wine buffs. I remember waiting eagerly for my copy in our little wine shop in Connecticut, looking to beat the nearby competition with Parkers recommendations for best buys. Unfortunately, many selections were not available for small dealers such as myself, or were too pricey for the local market. This didnt stop me from subscribing to the magazine because I loved Parkers reports. No one had a better way with words when it came to talking about wine. I stopped getting the magazine after we retired to Citrus County, though once in a while, feeling flush, Bev and I will spring for something special. Whats my opinion of what makes for a great wine? Its not complicated. The price has to fit within our personal comfort zone and has to be worthy enough to go back to the wine store and buy another bottle or two. Sorry, we have not run into any perfect labels lately, but we continue to recommend good everyday stuff. Two recent samplings are worthy of mention. One is an exceptional chardonnay, CrossBarn Sonoma Coast 2013. The color of gold in a stream, the nose is crisp but suggests terroir, it is dry and sweet at the same time, fresh and mouthfilling, hints of oak. This chardonnay will age nicely. Keep it five years or more. The other outstanding wine was Puccioni Zinfandel 2010. The saying goes: There are no wimpy zinfandels. But even the top-shelf single vineyard labels tend to a bit of bramble on the swallow. The first sip of this one jumped out with the flavor of ripe bing cherries, dry, but with that bit of sour sweetness I love in new cherries, delicious wine. Both are available online.Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut.

Things like lemon meringue pie, the luscious Key Lime cake at Amys on the Avenue, and fruit cobblers spritzed with citrus juice. I hope you do, too, because I have a few recipes for you today (tried and true from my kitchen and gathered from friends and family) that transcend ordinary meal finales, including what must be one of the all-time easiest pies to make.Rhubarb Custard Pie 1 deep dish single pie crust (homemade or frozen) 1 1/2 cups of sliced rhubarb (fresh or frozen) 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3/4 cup half and half Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If frozen, allow pie crust to thaw to almost room temperature to ensure bottom crust gets baked. Then spread rhubarb in pie shell. Mix all other ingredients and pour over rhubarb. Set pie on a cookie sheet and bake about 45 minutes or until custard is set. Cool and serve.If you dont like this, well, I dont know how to help you.Zingy Peach Cobbler 1 stick butter 1 cup self rising flour 1 cup evaporated milk 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 can peaches with syrup Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in baking dish. In large bowl, mix flour, milk and sugar. Pour on top of melted butter in dish. Add peaches and do not stir. Bake at 350 until crust browns and is bubbly, about 55 minutes.Cheese Danish with Zest 2 cans ready-to-use refrigerated crescent rolls 2 (8-ounce each) packages cream cheese 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 egg 1 egg white Glaze: 1/2 cup powdered sugar 2 Tablespoons milk 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 13by 9-inch baking pan. Lay a pack of crescent rolls in the pan and pinch the openings together. Beat the cream cheese, lemon juice, sugar, vanilla and egg together until smooth. Spread the mixture over the crescent rolls evenly and then lay the second pack of crescent rolls on top of the cheese mixture and brush with egg white. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the top is golden brown. Mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Top Danish with glaze after cooling for 20 minutes.

Associated PressSlice em and salt em. Thats really all a seasonally delicious tomato needs, though if you really want to gussy it up, you could add a bit of pepper, a splash of olive oil, maybe a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar. Just enough of each to highlight the sweetly acidic flavor of the juicy tomato flesh. Still, summer tends to bring an abundance of tomatoes and after a while we find ourselves hankering for something with a little more oomph. And a salad just isnt cutting it. So, we couldnt help but dream up a few other ways to play to a tomatos strengths. We started by turning them into a spicy-sweet jam that is a perfect accompaniment to cheeses and cured meats. Or try it in place of ketchup on a burger (or over any grilled meat, for that matter). Its also amazing added to a grilled cheese. Looking for something a bit more robust? Try our recipe for cheese-stuffed tomatoes, which fills hollowed out tomatoes with a mix of breadcrumbs and Monterey Jack cheese, then bakes them until bubbling.Spicy-Sweet Tomato JamStart to finish: 1 hour, plus cooling Makes 3 cups 8 large tomatoes, diced 2 large yellow onions, diced 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 3/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar In a large saute pan, combine all the ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 hour, or until thick and jammy. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.Cheese-Stuffed TomatoesStart to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 medium yellow onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (about 3 slices bread, finely chopped in a food processor) 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro 4 large tomatoes Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. In a medium skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic and coriander. Cook for 5 minutes, or just until tender. Stir in the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt, pepper and cilantro. Cut a -inch slice off the top of each tomato. Use a melon baller to scoop out the insides of the tomato, leaving the outer flesh intact. Spoon a quarter of the cheese mixture into each tomato. Arrange the filled tomatoes in the prepared pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender and bubbly. C4THURSDAY, JULY31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFLAIRFORFOOD It would be difficult to get much more perfect summer weather than what we have been experiencing. Last night we had a nice rain that cut the humidity and cooled everything and everyone off once more. My 16-year-old sister, Mary Grace, who lives next door, is here helping me for the day. We are doing cleaning in preparation for Daniels family from Danville, Ohio, who plan to come for a visit this weekend. Were excited to see them again. We also did some cooking today. With mashed potatoes being one of Daniels favorite hot dishes, we made a huge batch, then divided it into small containers to be frozen. Its very handy to thaw and heat at a moments notice. Our 2--year-old daughter Julia is in her glory. Mary Grace helped her bake caramel apple cupcakes and now theyre working on her favorite part which is, of course, putting sprinkles on top of the frosting. On Monday morning after doing the laundry, I checked the sweet corn and found it to be golden yellow, ready for harvest. Obviously, the coon had discovered the same thing the night before, but it fortunately hadnt done a lot of damage yet. Have you ever heard of husking corn right on the stalk? This simplifies the task and saves a lot of time. With both hands, firmly grasp the husk on top of the ear then pull it down to the base of the cob and snap it off. After doing several with this method, you wont want to go back to the old way of picking everything then husking it all. Earlier this morning on my walk, I noticed Dad picking corn in their patch. I talked with Mom and found out they have lots of corn that needs to be done. I took our corn down to her house. We pooled everything together; it makes the task so much more fun when working with others. She had a good setup in her back yard where we washed, blanched and cut the corn from the cobs. Their set of three burners attached to a propane tank had the corn boiling in no time! Heres a tip for simplifying the cooking process, especially if you have mega amounts of corn: Use an old pillowcase or make your own sack, put 20 to 30 ears of corn in it and submerge in boiling water. Hold the top part of the sack up out of the canner, place lid on top and flip the remaining part over the lid. When ready to remove the corn from the canner, instead of doing it piece by piece, grasp the sack and lift it all out at once. Dump the corn into cold water and proceed like you generally do. This morning at the crack of dawn, husband Daniel was up and ready to tackle our new project. Hes starting to build a deck behind our house trailer, which Im very excited about. With living in a mobile home, we have limited space; hopefully, this will add a new dimension to it. Next year, wed like to build a roof over it and have part of it screened in. Itll be a nice place to eat supper on hot summer evenings. I also look forward to doing some of my canning out there, as well. I decided Daniel deserves a special treat with all the hard work hes doing, so I made chocolate coffee smoothies for him. They are always refreshing, especially on summer days. I will include our recipe in case some of you may be interested in trying it. After experimenting, this is what we came up with. We use maple syrup as our sweetener. My brother Micah taps maple trees and cooks large quantities of syrup, so we always have an ample supply of it. Perhaps I can fill you in on more details in a future column. Sugar may be replaced with maple syrup, if desired. Also for those of you who are peanut butter lovers like me, you may want to add a dab of peanut butter.Chocolate Coffee Smoothies3 cups ice cubes or frozen milk chunks 1 cup whole milk 1/2 cup maple syrup 2 teaspoons instant coffee 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Put everything in a handcranked or electric blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses, top with a dab of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!Gloria Yoder is an Amish housewife in rural Illinois.

Gloria YoderTHE AMISH COOK Trick helps make harvesting corn easier Associated PressSpicy sweet tomato jam dresses up the traditional grilled cheese sandwich or toast. Holding on to tomato season with spicy-sweet jam Associated PressOften, the best dishes are the simplest. A common feeling among chefs is that if you use the bestquality ingredients and treat them lightly, you will be rewarded. I couldnt agree more. This is illustrated perfectly by this recipe for grilled tomatoes on the vine with burrata. Tomatoes with mozzarella is one of my favorite combinations, and I love it even when the tomatoes are less than perfect and the mozzarella is a little bland. But take a bunch of cherry tomatoes on the vine, grill them and serve them with burrata and some grilled bread and youve got an amazing dish. The hardest part of this recipe is treating the fragile tomatoes carefully so that they dont fall off the vine. You want to brush or rub them with a little olive oil to protect them, then season them lightly with kosher salt. Place the tomatoes vine side up on the cooking grate and do not turn them. The heat of the grill will intensify the natural juices and sugars, making the sweet tomatoes even more flavorful. The warm tomatoes can be served immediately with the burrata, a touch of extra-virgin olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper. I like to serve this as a shared plate with grilled ciabatta bread. Smear a little burrata on the ciabatta and top with a grill-roasted tomato. You can either spread the tomato, breaking the skin and smoothing out the juice on top of the cheese and olive oil, or keep it whole. Personally, I like to smear the two together, making a soft, rich juicy bite.Grilled Tomatoes and BurrataThis will become your go-to appetizer of summer. It is delicious and luxurious, but simple to make. The hardest thing about this recipe is making sure that the cherry tomatoes dont fall off the vine. Cant find burrata? Substitute a large ball of fresh mozzarella.Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 6 2 clusters cocktail tomatoes on the vine Extra-virgin olive oil Flaked sea salt 16-ounce ball of burrata or fresh mozzarella cheese Ground black pepper Artisan bread or ciabatta, to serve Heat a grill to medium-low. Carefully rinse the tomatoes, but leave them on the vine. Drizzle oil over the tomatoes and lightly rub it in, then sprinkle them lightly with salt. Place the tomatoes, vine side up, directly on the grills cooking grate. Grill with the lid down for about 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are warmed through and blackened in spots. Gently remove the tomatoes. Place the cheese on a serving plate and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then arrange the tomatoes around it. Serve with bread to sop up the juice from the tomatoes and the buratta. Associated PressGrilled tomatoes and burrata is a great appetizer for summer. Grill on-the-vine tomatoes for stunning starter

Hipster foodies looking to sample vegan pizzas or fusion tacos? Nope, these were children, agonizing over whether to pick the ham and cheese or the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, the regular or chocolate milk. It was part of a summer meals program that tries to make sure the children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the academic year dont lose out just because schools out. Instead of the kids coming to where the food is, the food goes to where the kids are. New York Citys Department of Education put its first truck in service a couple of years ago, and this year it has four one that goes to Orchard Beach in the Bronx and three that go to a park and two library branches in Queens. By bringing the food to them were able to extend our reach in ways that previously were unattainable, said Eric Goldstein, CEO of the departments Office of School Support Services. Goldstein said about 75 percent of the citys 1.1 million public school students are eligible during the school year for daily free or reduced-price meals, which the city provides and gets reimbursed for by the federal government. Participation during the school year requires filling out paperwork, and not all eligible students take part. Theres no paperwork in the summer. But while participation in the summer meals program is on the rise, with 7.6 million meals served in summer 2013, up from 7.1 million in 2012, its still lower than when school is in session. That mirrors whats seen around the country, where only a small portion of the 21 million children who get meals during the school year have access to them in the summer when it can be more of a logistical challenge for parents to get kids to food sites. Other places around the country have started using mobile delivery systems for their summer meals programs. In Baltimore, a summer meals program drops meals off at 11 sites, while in Waco, Texas, school buses go to certain designated sites and kids get on the bus to get their meals. In Floridas Palm Beach County, a church uses a retrofitted school bus to deliver meals to kids at three apartment complexes. However, New York City was one of the first to offer mobile deliveries and most probably resembles a traditional food truck, perhaps more than almost anybody in the country, said Josh Wachs, chief strategy officer for the organization Share Our Strength. The organizations No Kid Hungry program helped the city get trucks for its mobile food offerings. The trucks are white with bright colors. Theyre decorated with text that promotes the free meals, and a number people can text to find the food service location closest to them. Something that is conspicuously missing is any reference to the idea that this is part of any antihunger program aimed at low-income residents. Thats on purpose, Wachs said. Having a food truckstyle vehicle makes it fun for kids and reduces the stigma often associated with free meals that has limited participation, he said. Participation with the trucks hasnt been an issue. In 2012, 122,000 meals were served out of trucks. In 2013, it had jumped up to 320,000, Wachs said. And Goldstein said so far this summer, 65,000 more meals have been served via the trucks than at the same point last year. Many of those have been at the truck outside the Queens Public Library branch on Main Street in the Flushing section of the borough, which had served more than 84,000 meals as of last week. They were eaten by people like 10-year-old Azwa Sadat and her 6 year-old sister, Zoya, who come by the truck a couple of times a week with their mother, Ifath, on their way to the library. They both had chocolate milk and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and said they liked coming to the library even more because they knew the truck would be there. It smells good, Azwa said. Ying Li passed by the truck with her 5-year-old daughter, Sherry. Its very convenient, she said, as the two went on their way to get her 7-year-old son from summer day camp. Of course, kids being kids, it wasnt going to be perfect, as Sherry held onto her milk, but seemed reluctant to eat her sandwich. She doesnt really like the bread, Li said with a laugh. Associated PressYoung adults and small children accompanied by parents receive free lunches July 23 at the Get Ready 2 Go truck in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York. The citys Department of Education has turned to food trucks as part of its summer meals program. The program tries to make sure the children who qualify for reduced-price or free meals during the academic year dont lose out just because schools closed. NYC uses food trucks to bring summer meals to kids

THURSDAY, JULY31, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Dorothy Miller Richardson, an English novelist, said, If there was a trick, there must be a trickster. I suppose all bridge players could be called tricksters, even though some are more skillful at prestidigitation than others. In this deal, South is trying to bring home nine tricks in no-trump. After West leads the diamond queen, what should declarer do? And suppose dummys hearts were A-Q-10. Would that change Souths plan? After South opens two no-trump, showing a balanced hand with a good 20 to a so-so 22 points, North is right not to use Stayman with 4-3-3-3 distribution and such weak spades. Even if South has four spades, it is unlikely that four spades would make and three notrump fail. The reverse would be more probable. South starts with six top tricks: one spade, three hearts and two diamonds. Obviously, declarer should try to collect three club winners but how should he play the suit? This is a great example of lead up to honors. South should plan to cross to dummy three times with a heart and to play a club toward his hand. Whenever East has the club ace or the suit splits 3-3, the contract will come home. Note that leading a club honor from hand leads to defeat with this layout. If dummys hearts are A-Q-10, it is a much tougher problem. If East has ace-fourth of clubs, South needs three heart entries, so should play a heart to the 10, hoping West has the jack. But that risks going down when clubs are 3-3. The odds of each line are almost equal guess well.

He never phones or visits. In six years, he has seen them once for a n hour. I would like to change their last name to my maiden name. I have full physical and legal custody of my girls. My ex has supervised visitation that he hasnt taken advantage of. I married a wonderful man seven years ago, and he is truly their father. I have no idea where their biological father lives. Ive asked his sister, and she, too, has no clue. He has been in and out of jail on drug charges, and seeing as he isnt paying child support or showing any interest in the girls, I dont feel they should have to use his last name. How do I go about changing their names with the least amount of trouble? I cant afford a lawyer. My girls are 8 and 9 years old, and Id like to get this done. L.A., Calif. Dear L.A.: Contact your state or county courthouse and find out what forms are necessary to request a name change for minor children, and follow whatever additional instructions are required. (Should your ex reappear and contest this at a later date, you may need to contact a lawyer.) Before taking this step, however, consider how your girls will feel down the road. They may be perfectly content to be totally disconnected from their biological father, but we caution you not to make your animosity toward him part of the package. When they are older, please allow them to have their background information should they request it. Dear Annie: When it comes to relationships, whether family or friends, Ive always had to be the one to pursue communication with them. They rarely call to say hello or ask how things are going. I recently moved from Tennessee to Indiana and feel like Im by myself. I have few friends here. What would you suggest I do? Lonely Hoosier Dear Hoosier: It takes time to make friends in a new location. We recommend you get involved in local activities through your church, community centers, gyms, volunteer organizations, etc., as well as groups that hold interest for you, such as choirs, theater troupes, political organizations, book clubs and so on, which you can find online or through meetup.com. Some people, like you, are better at maintaining communication than others. But you also could ask some close friends or family members why they so rarely call. Sometimes there are problems that can be easily remedied. Dear Annie: Can I add one more story to the replies to Frustrated with Noise, about children crying in church? Many years ago, my family and I attended a large church in Groton, Conn. It was always packed to capacity. Sitting in front of us was another family with small children. As soon as the service started, the child who was sitting on his parents lap started screaming demonically. I had never heard any human being scream that loudly. Neither parent made any attempt to quiet the child. They sat there like petrified stone. The child continued screaming as the preacher attempted to give his sermon. Even though he was using a microphone, he could not override the childs screaming. Suddenly, the preacher said in a booming voice: In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to be quiet! The child stopped screaming instantaneously, and we didnt hear a peep out of him for the rest of the service.

GENERAL INFORMATION The Citrus County Public Schools provide daily bus service for all students living in excess of two miles from the school. Also, the Citrus County Public Schools provide daily bus services for students who require accommodations or who walk in areas exposing them to hazards (as defined by the State Statute and the Citrus County School Board Policy) regardless of the distance. The personnel of the Transportation Department recommend that parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) discuss and review the procedures of Student Safety, the Bus Rules and parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) responsibilities with all students who will be riding the school buses. By reviewing the information with the student, parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) will assist the bus drivers to continually provide safe transportation for all students. Violation of the Bus Safety Rules could result in the loss of bus riding privileges for a student. One student whose actions are distracting to the Bus Driver can endanger the safety of all children. Students may be videotaped anytime while on the school bus. The Citrus County Public Schools appreciate the continued support and cooperation of the student(s) and parents and/or legal guardian(s). Citrus County public schools encourage the following for student safety: Leave home each day to be at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus arrives. Face the traffic and walk on the shoulder of the road when no sidewalk is available. Stand away from the highway at the bus stop. Wait until the bus and other traffic comes to a full stop, and the bus door is opened before moving toward the bus. Cross in front of the bus at a distance of 10 feet to 12 feet. Never run alongside a moving bus. Report any illness or injury sustained on or around the bus immediately to the bus driver. For the safety of all students, students will maintain complete silence at all railroad crossings and when otherwise deemed necessary by the bus driver. The following are the responsibility of the students: Respect the bus driver and follow instructions. Remain seated; keep head and arms inside the bus and hands to yourself. Keep door and aisle clear of obstacles. No pets, glass or large items, including band instruments will be allowed on the bus. Do not throw anything, at anytime, on or out of the bus. Be absolutely quiet when the dome lights are on. Do not eat, drink, or chew gum on the bus. Keep conversations quiet. Use no profane or obscene language or gestures. Cross the road in front of the bus, after waiting for the drivers signal. Present a permission slip, signed by your parent/legal guardian and the principal or designee, for riding a bus other than the usual one or getting off at a different stop than the usual one. Maintain complete silence at all railroad crossings. Comply with all regulations in the Student Code of Conduct. Parents/legal guardians are responsible for the supervision of students as they travel to and from the bus stops and while they wait for the bus to arrive. Parents are encouraged to accompany students to and from bus stops. Parents/legal guardians should contact the Bus Driver and/or to request a conference with the Bus Driver arranged through the school and the Transportation Department whenever they have a concern. Bus Drivers must stay on schedule and, therefore, cannot discuss parent concerns while making bus stops or while on route.Citrus County public schools transportation services

It is the position of the Citrus County School Board that students must attend school on a regular and timely basis to maximize educational opportunities offered in Citrus County Schools. Regular and timely student attendance can be successfully achieved through a strong partnership between the home and school representatives. This policy is applicable for all Pre-K-12 students in Citrus County. The superintendent may approve exceptions to this policy for special programs, such as alternative education, magnet programs, and adult education programs for the purpose of enhancing the goals of these programs. I. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE The parents or guardians are responsible for their child(ren)s attendance and to follow compulsory attendance laws. Florida Statute 1003.21 requires: All children who have attained the age of 6 years or who will have attained the age of 6 years by Feb. 1 of any school year or who are older than 6 years of age but who have not attained the age of 16 years, except as otherwise provided, are required to attend school regularly during the entire school term. Students are obligated to attend one hundred eighty (180) days of school each year. Regular attendance is a critical component for student success. Students between sixteen (16) and eighteen (18) years of age who plan to terminate their school enrollment must complete a formal Declaration of Intent signed by the student and the students parent or guardian prior to the termination going into effect. Parent Responsibilities Florida Statutes 1003.21 and 1003.24 clearly define the responsibility of parents for the attendance of their child(ren) at school. The school district expects parents to fulfill their responsibilities to ensure student attendance in school. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to be aware of all absences and the penalties associated with excessive absences and unexcused absences and tardies. Schools will provide information to parents about attendance requirements, will make reasonable attempts to notify parents of student absences, and will work with parents to resolve attendance concerns. The principal/designee will contact the parent or guardian to determine the basis for unexcused absences or absences when the reason is unknown. If a student has unexcused absences sufficient enough to jeopardize academic progress and it is determined that the students parent or legal guardian is at fault for these absences, the appropriate school personnel will adhere to Florida Statutes 1003.24, 1003.26 (Enforcement of School Attendance), and 1003.27 (Court Procedures and Penalties). Non-enrollment of Compulsory Attendance Age Students Written notice shall be given in person or by return-receipt mail to the parent(s) or guardian(s) or other person exercising in loco parentis, when no valid reason is found for a childs non-enrollment. If the notice and requirement are ignored, the designated school representative shall report the case to the superintendent and refer the case to the Student Services Department for compliance with the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21).

Some clothing which might be appropriate in other settings would be completely inappropriate and disruptive for the learning atmosphere in a school setting. The principal or designee is responsible for interpreting and clarifying the student dress code upon student or parent request. The principal or designee is the final authority for interpreting and applying the student dress code related to special events and activities conducted at the school. Students will dress in attire which does not distract from the learning process or the educational environment. The Citrus County School guidelines specify the following: Clothing should not be sexually suggestive and it should cover and conceal body parts; e.g., chest, midriff, back, legs (to mid-thigh or longer), shoulders (2-inch-wide shoulder straps minimum). Clothing should cover all undergarments. Shorts, skirts, or pants should be worn at natural waistline. Attire should not illustrate, enhance or depict tobacco alcohol/drugs, nor have offensive, racial, satanic, gang-related, sexual or violent messages or images. Attire should contribute to the health and safety of all students and staff. Jewelry, shoes, accessories, hair color and hair styles must be free of conditions that could be considered hazardous or disruptive. Accessories such as, but not limited to, spiked neck, spiked wristbands, and wallet chains are not permissible. Blankets used for jackets and sleepwear (i.e., pajamas, house slippers) are not allowed. HEAD COVERS Hats and distracting head covers should not be worn in designated school areas at any time. FOOTWEAR Footwear should contribute to the health and safety of all students and staff. Roller shoes and house slippers are not permitted. Tennis shoes/sneakers may be required for physical activity. CLOTHING The following administrative guidelines must be followed by all students when wearing shorts, skirts, pants, and dresses: 1. Length of shorts, skirts, and dresses must be mid-thigh or longer when standing. 2. Dresses, skirts, and shorts that are too tight or too baggy will not be permitted. Items such as leggings, bicycle shorts, aerobic shorts, etc. are not permitted unless under approved clothing. 3. Shorts, skirts, pants, and dresses must be hemmed. 4. Pants that are too tight, too baggy, or too long will not be permitted. NOTE: It is the responsibility of each student to come to school in the appropriate dress, have respect for self and others, and understand the role that appropriate dress and respect for self and others has on an orderly learning environment. Therefore, students, while attending school during the regular school day, are prohibited from wearing clothes that expose underwear or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner or that disrupts the orderly learning environment. Any student who violates this dress policy is subject to the following disciplinary actions: 1. For a first offense, a student shall be given a verbal warning and the school principal shall call the students parent or guardian. 2. For a second offense, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activity for a period of time not to exceed five (5) days and the school principal shall meet with the students parent or guardian. 3. For a third or subsequent offense, a student shall receive an in-school suspension pursuant to .01(5), Florida Statutes, for a period not to exceed three (3) days, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activity for a period not to exceed 30 days, and the school principal shall call the students parent or guardian and send the parent or guardian a written letter regarding the students in-school suspension and ineligibility to participate in extracurricular activities. Violation of the student dress code Any student violating the student dress code may be sent home to change, or the parent may be asked to bring a change of clothes to the school for the student. Any absence caused by a student dress code violation will be an unexcused absence for each period or day missed. A violation may also result in a suspension. Nothing in this section is intended to keep school principals from using their best judgment as to how to best implement this code.

provided by the parent, the absence(s) will be unexcused. The written statement must include the following information for each absence: Date the excuse is written Date(s) of the absence(s) Full name of the student Reason for the absence Daytime telephone number of parent or guardian Signature of the parent or guardian Final determination of whether an absence, tardy, or early dismissal is excused or unexcused is the responsibility of the local school principal/designee. Any planned absences, other than medical appointments, must be approved in advance by the principal/designee. III. TARDIES AND UNEXCUSED DISMISSALS A. A tardy is defined as an arrival to class or school after the designated starting time or the tardy signal has sounded. Reasons for excused tardies are the same as for excused absences. Three (3) unexcused tardies within a nine-week grading period are equivalent to one (1) unexcused absence. B. Students may leave early for those reasons accepted for excused absences. To leave school early without an acceptable reason is an unexcused absence/early dismissal. Three (3) unexcused early dismissals within a nineweek grading period are equivalent to one (1) unexcused absence. C. Parents are encouraged to maintain student attendance for the entire school day with minimal interruptions or unnecessary requests to leave school early. For high school, a student must attend each class period a minimum of 50 percent to avoid being marked absent. D. When tardies or early dismissals become excessive, the problem may be addressed through a required parent conference with the school principal/ designee, and appropriate disciplinary action may be taken. The disciplinary actions may include, but not be limited to: Detention In-school suspension Saturday school IV. SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY A. After 10 days of excused or unexcused absences, a written statement of illness from a licensed health care practitioner will be required for subsequent absences due to illness indicating they are under the supervision of the physician. Absences previously documented by a licensed health care practitioner, a court official, a church official and out-of-school suspensions are excluded from the 10-day absence count. (NOTE: For purposes of this policy, a licensed health care practitioner is defined as follows: medical doctors and persons who are licensed to practice medicine in psychiatry, osteopathy, podiatry, optometry, dentistry, or chiropractic medicine. An Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) or a Physicians Assistant (PA) practicing under the protocol of a supervising physician is also allowed to sign.) If no medical documentation is provided, further absences are considered unexcused. Failure to comply with these requirements, followed by continued absences of the student, may result in disciplinary action as defined in the Code of Student Conduct (i.e., detention, inschool suspension, Saturday school, etc.) and considered appropriate by the school principal. A parent conference with the schools attendance assistant may also be required to discuss compliance with the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21). B. If a student has had at least five (5) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reason is unknown, within a calendar month or ten (10) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reason is unknown, within a 90 calendar day period, the students primary teacher shall report to the school principal/designee that the student may be exhibiting a pattern of non-attendance. The principal shall, unless there is clear evidence that the absences are not a pattern of nonattendance, refer the case to the schools child study team to determine if early patterns of truancy are developing. If the child study team finds that a pattern of nonattendance is developing, whether the absences are excused or not, a meeting with the parent must be scheduled to identify potential remedies. C. After fifteen (15) unexcused absences accumulate within any ninety (90) calendar days, the Student Services Center will determine the appropriate steps for the enforcement of the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute. (Florida Statute 1003.21). V. PROVISIONS AND DIRECTIONS FOR MAKE-UP WORK A. Excused Absences 1. Students with excused absences are given the privilege of making up work for credit. Students are allowed the same number of days for make-up work as the number of days absent, not to exceed six (6) school days. The principal/designee may grant extensions to the make-up time limit for extenuating circumstances. It is the students responsibility to obtain and complete all make-up work within the time specified. 2. All scheduled tests and assignments that were due on the first day of a students absence will be taken or turned in on the day the student returns to school. 3. Planned absences, other than medical appointments, must have the prior approval of the principal/designee. At least three (3) school days prior to the absence, students are to make pre-arrangements for their test(s) and school work to be completed. Tests are to be taken and work will be due the day the student returns to school. B. Unexcused Absences Each school will develop administrative practices and procedures regarding make-up work for students with unexcused absences. Input and involvement from the faculty, staff, and school enhancement council should be included in the development of these practices and procedures. To maintain academic progress, students should be encouraged to make up work, even if credit will not be awarded. Parents and students will be provided information regarding these practices and procedures. C. Suspensions Students suspended out of school may be denied the opportunity to make up work for credit. Determination of this consideration is the responsibility of the local school principal/designee. VI. ENFORCEMENT OF COMPULSORY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE In cases of excessive absences, tardies, or early dismissals, an attendance assistant or school social worker may visit or make other contact with the parent(s) or guardian(s) at the home or other places to discuss the attendance problem for the purpose of returning the student to regular attendance. Legal action against a student and parent(s) or guardian(s) may be taken for not complying with the Florida Compulsory School Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21). VII. DRIVING PRIVILEGES Students who fail to comply with attendance requirements will lose their driving privileges. Pursuant to Section 322.091, Florida Statute requires schools to report to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (DHSMV) the names of minors who attain the age of 14 and above that have accumulated 15 unexcused absences in a period of 90 calendar days. The school principal/ designee is the contact for additional information regarding these requirements. VIII. ATTENDANCE RECORDING Student attendance records are to be maintained in accordance with School Board Policy. Students who are on hospital/homebound or home placement instruction are counted as present.

MissionThe mission of the Citrus County School District is to educate all students through relevant curriculum and experiences for life in an ever-changing world. We believe that: A safe and caring environment is essential for the learning and well being of all individuals. Individuals and organizations are accountable for their behaviors and actions. High expectations and challenging standards promote continuous improvement and high achievement. All individuals can learn at different times, in different ways, and at different rates. Mutual respect is a keystone of learning. Recognition promotes higher accomplishment and self-esteem. Community involvement and teamwork are critical to a high quality educational system. It is essential to embrace the diversity of individuals, ideas, talents, and learning styles. High quality education demands innovation and risk. The balance of academics and extracurricular activities is essential for a well-rounded education. Students require discipline and direction in order to be successful learners. Open and honest communication is essential to effective human interaction. Lifelong learning improves the quality of life.Strategic GoalsAll students will develop a foundation of knowledge and skills through a rigorous and relevant curriculum that exceeds local, state, and national expectations, closes all performance gaps, and helps all students realize their full potential. Schools will be safe and secure for all individuals and will provide students the opportunity to participate in a school community that creates a caring environment committed to building positive relationships. Strategies used to achieve the Strategic Goals will involve: Innovative and research-based curriculum and program delivery systems Emphasis on at-risk and special groups of learners (including gifted) Professional learning, recruitment, and retention of workforce Data systems (technology) Allocation of resources (human, physical, technological, financial) Career preparation Community

The appropriate Citrus County Public Schools personnel will be authorized to assist the student(s) in the administration of prescription medication according to the Florida Statute 1006.062. Over the counter (OTC) medication will be handled in the same manner as prescription medication. All medications must be properly labeled from the pharmacy and in the original container. A separate medication authorization form is required for each drug administered. The prescription bottle must be within the expiration date. An adult must bring all medication to the school. Medicines and treatments considered outside medical protocols, as established by the Citrus County Health Department, such as herbal treatments for ADD/ADHD, caffeine pills, aloe for burns, and meat tenderizer for bee stings require a physicians note. Medications should be administered at school only if it is necessary to give the medication during school hours, for example, a medication given three times a day could be given before school, after school, and at bedtime. Over-the-counter medications are treated just like prescriptions. OTC medication may be limited or require a physicians order. Students shall not carry any medications including Tylenol, eye drops or cough drops, etc. Florida Statute 1002.20 provides that students may carry a metered dose inhaler, epinephrine auto-injectors diabetic supplies and equipment, and pancreatic enzyme supplement.

A special permission form must be completed and any metered dose inhaler, epinephrine auto-injector, diabetic supplies and equipment, and pancreatic enzyme supplement must be labeled with the students name.

provided by the parent, the absence(s) will be unexcused. The written statement must include the following information for each absence: Date the excuse is written Date(s) of the absence(s) Full name of the student Reason for the absence Daytime telephone number of parent or guardian Signature of the parent or guardian Final determination of whether an absence, tardy, or early dismissal is excused or unexcused is the responsibility of the local school principal/designee. Any planned absences, other than medical appointments, must be approved in advance by the principal/designee. III. TARDIES AND UNEXCUSED DISMISSALS A. A tardy is defined as an arrival to class or school after the designated starting time or the tardy signal has sounded. Reasons for excused tardies are the same as for excused absences. Three (3) unexcused tardies within a nine-week grading period are equivalent to one (1) unexcused absence. B. Students may leave early for those reasons accepted for excused absences. To leave school early without an acceptable reason is an unexcused absence/early dismissal. Three (3) unexcused early dismissals within a nineweek grading period are equivalent to one (1) unexcused absence. C. Parents are encouraged to maintain student attendance for the entire school day with minimal interruptions or unnecessary requests to leave school early. For high school, a student must attend each class period a minimum of 50 percent to avoid being marked absent. D. When tardies or early dismissals become excessive, the problem may be addressed through a required parent conference with the school principal/ designee, and appropriate disciplinary action may be taken. The disciplinary actions may include, but not be limited to: Detention In-school suspension Saturday school IV. SCHOOL RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY A. After 10 days of excused or unexcused absences, a written statement of illness from a licensed health care practitioner will be required for subsequent absences due to illness indicating they are under the supervision of the physician. Absences previously documented by a licensed health care practitioner, a court official, a church official and out-of-school suspensions are excluded from the 10-day absence count. (NOTE: For purposes of this policy, a licensed health care practitioner is defined as follows: medical doctors and persons who are licensed to practice medicine in psychiatry, osteopathy, podiatry, optometry, dentistry, or chiropractic medicine. An Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) or a Physicians Assistant (PA) practicing under the protocol of a supervising physician is also allowed to sign.) If no medical documentation is provided, further absences are considered unexcused. Failure to comply with these requirements, followed by continued absences of the student, may result in disciplinary action as defined in the Code of Student Conduct (i.e., detention, inschool suspension, Saturday school, etc.) and considered appropriate by the school principal. A parent conference with the schools attendance assistant may also be required to discuss compliance with the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21). B. If a student has had at least five (5) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reason is unknown, within a calendar month or ten (10) unexcused absences, or absences for which the reason is unknown, within a 90 calendar day period, the students primary teacher shall report to the school principal/designee that the student may be exhibiting a pattern of non-attendance. The principal shall, unless there is clear evidence that the absences are not a pattern of nonattendance, refer the case to the schools child study team to determine if early patterns of truancy are developing. If the child study team finds that a pattern of nonattendance is developing, whether the absences are excused or not, a meeting with the parent must be scheduled to identify potential remedies. C. After fifteen (15) unexcused absences accumulate within any ninety (90) calendar days, the Student Services Center will determine the appropriate steps for the enforcement of the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute. (Florida Statute 1003.21). V. PROVISIONS AND DIRECTIONS FOR MAKE-UP WORK A. Excused Absences 1. Students with excused absences are given the privilege of making up work for credit. Students are allowed the same number of days for make-up work as the number of days absent, not to exceed six (6) school days. The principal/designee may grant extensions to the make-up time limit for extenuating circumstances. It is the students responsibility to obtain and complete all make-up work within the time specified. 2. All scheduled tests and assignments that were due on the first day of a students absence will be taken or turned in on the day the student returns to school. 3. Planned absences, other than medical appointments, must have the prior approval of the principal/designee. At least three (3) school days prior to the absence, students are to make pre-arrangements for their test(s) and school work to be completed. Tests are to be taken and work will be due the day the student returns to school. B. Unexcused Absences Each school will develop administrative practices and procedures regarding make-up work for students with unexcused absences. Input and involvement from the faculty, staff, and school enhancement council should be included in the development of these practices and procedures. To maintain academic progress, students should be encouraged to make up work, even if credit will not be awarded. Parents and students will be provided information regarding these practices and procedures. C. Suspensions Students suspended out of school may be denied the opportunity to make up work for credit. Determination of this consideration is the responsibility of the local school principal/designee. VI. ENFORCEMENT OF COMPULSORY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE In cases of excessive absences, tardies, or early dismissals, an attendance assistant or school social worker may visit or make other contact with the parent(s) or guardian(s) at the home or other places to discuss the attendance problem for the purpose of returning the student to regular attendance. Legal action against a student and parent(s) or guardian(s) may be taken for not complying with the Florida Compulsory School Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21). VII. DRIVING PRIVILEGES Students who fail to comply with attendance requirements will lose their driving privileges. Pursuant to Section 322.091, Florida Statute requires schools to report to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (DHSMV) the names of minors who attain the age of 14 and above that have accumulated 15 unexcused absences in a period of 90 calendar days. The school principal/ designee is the contact for additional information regarding these requirements. VIII. ATTENDANCE RECORDING Student attendance records are to be maintained in accordance with School Board Policy. Students who are on hospital/homebound or home placement instruction are counted as present.

It is the position of the Citrus County School Board that students must attend school on a regular and timely basis to maximize educational opportunities offered in Citrus County Schools. Regular and timely student attendance can be successfully achieved through a strong partnership between the home and school representatives. This policy is applicable for all Pre-K-12 students in Citrus County. The superintendent may approve exceptions to this policy for special programs, such as alternative education, magnet programs, and adult education programs for the purpose of enhancing the goals of these programs. I. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE The parents or guardians are responsible for their child(ren)s attendance and to follow compulsory attendance laws. Florida Statute 1003.21 requires: All children who have attained the age of 6 years or who will have attained the age of 6 years by Feb. 1 of any school year or who are older than 6 years of age but who have not attained the age of 16 years, except as otherwise provided, are required to attend school regularly during the entire school term. Students are obligated to attend one hundred eighty (180) days of school each year. Regular attendance is a critical component for student success. Students between sixteen (16) and eighteen (18) years of age who plan to terminate their school enrollment must complete a formal Declaration of Intent signed by the student and the students parent or guardian prior to the termination going into effect. Parent Responsibilities Florida Statutes 1003.21 and 1003.24 clearly define the responsibility of parents for the attendance of their child(ren) at school. The school district expects parents to fulfill their responsibilities to ensure student attendance in school. It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to be aware of all absences and the penalties associated with excessive absences and unexcused absences and tardies. Schools will provide information to parents about attendance requirements, will make reasonable attempts to notify parents of student absences, and will work with parents to resolve attendance concerns. The principal/designee will contact the parent or guardian to determine the basis for unexcused absences or absences when the reason is unknown. If a student has unexcused absences sufficient enough to jeopardize academic progress and it is determined that the students parent or legal guardian is at fault for these absences, the appropriate school personnel will adhere to Florida Statutes 1003.24, 1003.26 (Enforcement of School Attendance), and 1003.27 (Court Procedures and Penalties). Non-enrollment of Compulsory Attendance Age Students Written notice shall be given in person or by return-receipt mail to the parent(s) or guardian(s) or other person exercising in loco parentis, when no valid reason is found for a childs non-enrollment. If the notice and requirement are ignored, the designated school representative shall report the case to the superintendent and refer the case to the Student Services Department for compliance with the Florida Compulsory Attendance Statute (Florida Statute 1003.21). Notification of Loco Parentis In cases in which a student is not residing with his/her parent(s)/ guardian(s), the parent of the student must designate in writing the adult person(s) with whom the student resides who stands in loco parentis so that the student may be admitted to or continue in school. This statement must be notarized and presented to the principal/designee for acceptance. II. STUDENT ABSENCES Excused Absences Excused absences, tardies, and permission to leave school early will be allowed only for the following: Illness of the student Major illness in the immediate family of the student Medical appointments of the student Death in the immediate family of the student Religious holiday of a student must be documented by parent/guardian three (3) days in advance Subpoena or forced absence by any law enforcement agency to fulfill civic duties, (a copy of the subpoena or court summons must be presented to the principal or designee.) Major disaster that would justify absence in the judgment of the administration Head lice, a maximum of two (2) days for each occurrence Planned absences approved in advance by the principal/ designee It is the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s) to provide a written statement indicating the reason for the absence within two (2) days of the students return to school. If the written statement is notCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, July 31, 2014 D21 BACKTOSCHOOL D4Thursday, July 31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE BACKTOSCHOOL Citrus County attendance policycontinued on Page D6 The Citrus County School Board recognizes that clothing fashions change and fads come and go, but distinctions still need to be made as to what is acceptable attire for educational purposes. Some clothing which might be appropriate in other settings would be completely inappropriate and disruptive for the learning atmosphere in a school setting. The principal or designee is responsible for interpreting and clarifying the student dress code upon student or parent request. The principal or designee is the final authority for interpreting and applying the student dress code related to special events and activities conducted at the school. Students will dress in attire which does not distract from the learning process or the educational environment. The Citrus County School guidelines specify the following: Clothing should not be sexually suggestive and it should cover and conceal body parts; e.g., chest, midriff, back, legs (to mid-thigh or longer), shoulders (2-inch-wide shoulder straps minimum). Clothing should cover all undergarments. Shorts, skirts, or pants should be worn at natural waistline. Attire should not illustrate, enhance or depict tobacco alcohol/drugs, nor have offensive, racial, satanic, gang-related, sexual or violent messages or images. Attire should contribute to the health and safety of all students and staff. Jewelry, shoes, accessories, hair color and hair styles must be free of conditions that could be considered hazardous or disruptive. Accessories such as, but not limited to, spiked neck, spiked wristbands, and wallet chains are not permissible. Blankets used for jackets and sleepwear (i.e., pajamas, house slippers) are not allowed. HEAD COVERS Hats and distracting head covers should not be worn in designated school areas at any time. FOOTWEAR Footwear should contribute to the health and safety of all students and staff. Roller shoes and house slippers are not permitted. Tennis shoes/sneakers may be required for physical activity. CLOTHING The following administrative guidelines must be followed by all students when wearing shorts, skirts, pants, and dresses: 1. Length of shorts, skirts, and dresses must be mid-thigh or longer when standing. 2. Dresses, skirts, and shorts that are too tight or too baggy will not be permitted. Items such as leggings, bicycle shorts, aerobic shorts, etc. are not permitted unless under approved clothing. 3. Shorts, skirts, pants, and dresses must be hemmed. 4. Pants that are too tight, too baggy, or too long will not be permitted. NOTE: It is the responsibility of each student to come to school in the appropriate dress, have respect for self and others, and understand the role that appropriate dress and respect for self and others has on an orderly learning environment. Therefore, students, while attending school during the regular school day, are prohibited from wearing clothes that expose underwear or body parts in an indecent or vulgar manner or that disrupts the orderly learning environment. Any student who violates this dress policy is subject to the following disciplinary actions: 1. For a first offense, a student shall be given a verbal warning and the school principal shall call the students parent or guardian. 2. For a second offense, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activity for a period of time not to exceed five (5) days and the school principal shall meet with the students parent or guardian. 3. For a third or subsequent offense, a student shall receive an in-school suspension pursuant to .01(5), Florida Statutes, for a period not to exceed three (3) days, the student is ineligible to participate in any extracurricular activity for a period not to exceed 30 days, and the school principal shall call the students parent or guardian and send the parent or guardian a written letter regarding the students in-school suspension and ineligibility to participate in extracurricular activities. Violation of the student dress code Any student violating the student dress code may be sent home to change, or the parent may be asked to bring a change of clothes to the school for the student. Any absence caused by a student dress code violation will be an unexcused absence for each period or day missed. A violation may also result in a suspension. Nothing in this section is intended to keep school principals from using their best judgment as to how to best implement this code.

GENERAL INFORMATION The Citrus County Public Schools provide daily bus service for all students living in excess of two miles from the school. Also, the Citrus County Public Schools provide daily bus services for students who require accommodations or who walk in areas exposing them to hazards (as defined by the State Statute and the Citrus County School Board Policy) regardless of the distance. The personnel of the Transportation Department recommend that parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) discuss and review the procedures of Student Safety, the Bus Rules and parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) responsibilities with all students who will be riding the school buses. By reviewing the information with the student, parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) will assist the bus drivers to continually provide safe transportation for all students. Violation of the Bus Safety Rules could result in the loss of bus riding privileges for a student. One student whose actions are distracting to the Bus Driver can endanger the safety of all children. Students may be videotaped anytime while on the school bus. The Citrus County Public Schools appreciate the continued support and cooperation of the student(s) and parents and/or legal guardian(s). Citrus County public schools encourage the following for student safety: Leave home each day to be at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus arrives. Face the traffic and walk on the shoulder of the road when no sidewalk is available. Stand away from the highway at the bus stop. Wait until the bus and other traffic comes to a full stop, and the bus door is opened before moving toward the bus. Cross in front of the bus at a distance of 10 feet to 12 feet. Never run alongside a moving bus. Report any illness or injury sustained on or around the bus immediately to the bus driver. For the safety of all students, students will maintain complete silence at all railroad crossings and when otherwise deemed necessary by the bus driver. The following are the responsibility of the students: Respect the bus driver and follow instructions. Remain seated; keep head and arms inside the bus and hands to yourself. Keep door and aisle clear of obstacles. No pets, glass or large items, including band instruments will be allowed on the bus. Do not throw anything, at anytime, on or out of the bus. Be absolutely quiet when the dome lights are on. Do not eat, drink, or chew gum on the bus. Keep conversations quiet. Use no profane or obscene language or gestures. Cross the road in front of the bus, after waiting for the drivers signal. Present a permission slip, signed by your parent/legal guardian and the principal or designee, for riding a bus other than the usual one or getting off at a different stop than the usual one. Maintain complete silence at all railroad crossings. Comply with all regulations in the Student Code of Conduct. Parents/legal guardians are responsible for the supervision of students as they travel to and from the bus stops and while they wait for the bus to arrive. Parents are encouraged to accompany students to and from bus stops. Parents/legal guardians should contact the Bus Driver and/or to request a conference with the Bus Driver arranged through the school and the Transportation Department whenever they have a concern. Bus Drivers must stay on schedule and, therefore, cannot discuss parent concerns while making bus stops or while on route.Citrus County public schools transportation services

Chapter 234.01, FS instructs Florida school boards to provide transportation for students whose homes are more than a reasonable walking distance from the students assigned school. Chapter 6A-3.001, FAC defines a reasonable walking distance as any distance not more than two (2) miles between the home and school or one and one-half (1 1/2) miles between the home and the assigned bus stop.

The BOCC also hosts a page for the Extension Services Office, an excellent resource for those of you with a green thumb. The Extension Office has teamed up with the University of Florida to offer information on horticulture, food safety and finance among many other things. Love animals? You might want to take a look at Citrus Countys Animal Services website, citruscritters.com. If you are looking for a dog or cat, take a look at the postings on this site; it wont be long till you are taking one of these cute little critters to a new forever home. Maybe dogs and cats arent for you; there is also an other category that might contain anything from birds and hamsters to pigs and horses. There is also plenty of information on volunteering with the animals, which (in my opinion) sounds like a lot of fun. The county also offers obedience classes that will have your naughty puppy acting like a little angel. Safety is important and the Sheriffs Office website, sheriffcitrus.org, is a great place to look for tips on keeping safe. There is plenty of information on crime prevention, as well, and you can even fill out a form to have the Sheriffs Office come out and inspect your home for certain safety features. If you are interested in keeping your children or grandchildren safe, you might want to check this site for more information about the local Child ID program. The Sheriffs Office has all sorts of services available and its website is the best place to find out about what they offer the community.

Special to the ChronicleEach month, the PetMeals Program provides dog and cat food to the companion pets of senior citizens who receive Meals On Wheels. The PetMeals program was started when it was noticed that a very thin man was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal. When asked why he was doing this, he said he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved dog. The PetMeals Program is a 100 percent donation-based, volunteer-driven program that provides dog food and cat food to senior citizens who receive Meals On Wheels. Do you have a pet who is a member of your family? Do you love animals? The PetMeals Program is seeking help from pet lovers throughout Citrus County. If you are able, donate unopened bags or cans of dog and cat food at a local community center, or monetary donations can be sent to: PetMeals Program, 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court, Key #3, Lecanto, FL 34461. During this difficult economy, some of the hardest hit are senior citizens. Many seniors have no family members and find themselves alone with their pets as their only companions. Any contributions are accepted and appreciated. For more information about how to help and to make food or monetary donations, call 352-527-5975. PetMeals needs help to feed seniors companions Citrus Publishing1614 N.

As many of you know, I try to stay up with all the new technology. One of my reasons for doing this is, of course, my job requires some level of computer/communication skills. Aside from that, I want to make sure I continue to communicate with my beautiful and overly intelligent grandchildren. How many of us have said to ourselves we would never be tied to a cell phone? Now I have two one for work, one for personal use. In the past I said I didnt see any reason why I would ever want to text anyone. Well, again, that is mostly how I communicate with family and friends these days. I thought to myself, I simply dont understand why anyone would want to sign up for Facebook. Then I discovered one could find classmates and reconnect with them on Facebook. So, a few years ago, I opened a Facebook page and I did reconnect with a lot of my childhood friends and classmates from my hometown of Brooksville. Oh, OK. The real reason I opened the page was so I could spy on my grandchildren. While Facebook is a great medium for socializing, there are problems that crop up; not so much with the site itself, but with the people who use Facebook. Im finding, by and large, they are the same people that send those gooey Christmas letters. You know, the ones that start out with, my year has been wonderful, we won millions of dollars in the lottery and its been uphill from there or Little Susie is now a renowned doctor and she devotes all of her spare time to childrens charities! Now it seems Im bombarded all year-round with continual Family Updates. Please spare me! It seems this group rarely has any family/life issues like the rest of us normal beings. If they do report a catastrophe, it would go something like this, Our little Jerrod was allergic to the allleather couch with solid gold trim that we purchased for our living room in our new 95,000-square-foot home. We switched to all velvet and diamonds and he is recovering nicely. They seem to suffer from the Its all about me syndrome. Rarely ever do these Facebook users really report the normal family stuff, like, Grandma had her license taken away because she drove into (not to, but into, smack dab up the soda isle) the local 7-11 store. Wait, maybe that isnt exactly normal, but you get the picture. Could it be that maybe, just maybe, things arent exactly as they report them? Now, thats something to ponder. Seriously, I am glad all is more than well for these people, but please, cant they identify with us commoners once in a while? Or, how about this, I could just stay off Facebook. That might not be such a good idea, because then I wouldnt be able to snoop into other peoples lives, now would I? Oh, well, I really must go now because my limo is waiting to take me to my private jet. Just kidding. Until next time, keep laughing, because laughter is the best medicine!

By Ben KampschroerSpecial to the ChronicleYou may have heard of the Eat Local Movement, a campaign encouraging people to eat food that has been grown and prepared locally. This movement has people thinking more about where the food they eat comes from, and it can really make or break a tourist location. Things like locally caught seafood and locally brewed drinks are a big draw for tourists, who literally want to taste what it is like to live in Florida. Eating locally also bolsters a sense of pride in the community you live in, and can be a very rewarding experience for both consumer and producer. But why should we stop at food? Local restaurants must compete with larger chains, so must our locally grown websites compete with other sites. Local resources are sometimes harder to find, but they are worth the extra searching because those who are creating these resources know the community and can tailor the sites to be more useful to locals. The first stop on our tour is bocc.citrus.fl.us, which is the Board of County Commissioners website. This is an excellent starting point for many of your information needs. Here, you will find links to almost anything that the BOCC handles. You can find recent court records, learn about disaster safety or even pay a ticket. For those of you who are looking for employment, this is the place to look for any new job postings that the county is offering. This site also announces upcoming county events and news, such as which holidays our county services will not be available on, as well as workshops the county offers.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, July 31, 2014 G13 SENIORSWITHSAVVY G4Thursday, July 31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SENIORSWITHSAVVY By Doris ButtSpecial to the ChronicleOur first scarecrow at the farmstead was a couple dressed for Halloween. They were the beginning of a fun project that went on for years. We created Harry and Sally, the sentinels of the barn. One of my favorite things to do was dress them. Every time I changed their clothes, I took their pictures. Through the years, I took so many photos of the couple that I recently put them in a booklet, so they would be handy for reminiscing moments. My favorite outfits were a swimsuit dress-up when my pool friends came for a picnic, a salute to the Indiana Pacers Reggie Millers retirement and their pink outfits during breast cancer awareness month. My scarecrow pride and joy was the creation of Mr. McGregors garden. The old fellow spent years being frustrated by the rabbit family that also occupied his garden: Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit. He did manage to capture Peters little blue coat, which was proudly displayed in the garden. It started out a true vegetable garden with tiny rows of vegetables and a few flowers. As years went by, Mr. McGregor cut back on vegetables and specialized in hollyhocks. After a time, the rabbits moved on to a friends garden about the same time Rays shoulders gave up gardening. My favorite memory of the garden is when grandson Aaron, age 2, hopped on my golf cart and with the speed of light plowed through the heart of the garden, bounced over its rock wall and landed in the middle of the road. No harm came to him, but he left a path of petunias and poor Flopsy bit the dust. When we sold the farmstead, we moved where the yard is taken care of for a fee. We can only plant flowers or whatever we choose (I thought) in the mulched area around the front of the house. It did not take long for me to figure out there was room for some special friends seen daily in the Chronicle. Quite a few years ago, while still at the farmstead, I emailed cartoon artist Brian Crane asking if I could make scarecrows of his characters and he replied that he would be honored if I did. Why anyone would put Pickles and Opal in their front yard might be puzzling to you. I guess the bottom line is that it brings me much pleasure. They make me smile. And I hope I am sharing a reason to smile with those that see them as they pass by. However, I have to admit Ray and I now live on a street that probably doesnt get more than a dozen cars passing by each day. I just cut Pickles, Opal, their cat Muffin and dog Roscoe from the comics and enlarged with my printer many times. They looked just like they do in the comics. Ray made the couples bodies, which was much more of a project than a couple of sticks. Our daughter made Opals pink polka-dotted dress and apron like she always wears. Pickles was dressed in Goodwills finest. We tucked Pickles and Opal in the little space in the allowed mulch, with Muffin and Roscoe nearby. Then we planted flowing petunias that matched Opals pink dress. It was a grand scene. The mail lady noticed them. She told Ray, He looked better without his mustache. That brought a laugh. I sent a photo to Brian. He liked them. So you might think that is the end of the story. Well, readers, our homeowners association said, No. No. No. My friends have retreated to the comfort of our garage. All we have in our mulch now are some pretty pink petunias that match Opals dress, which brings a rather sad ending to this column.

Mary couldnt find her car keys. She looked on the hook just inside the front door. They werent there. She searched in her purse. No luck. Finally, she found them on her desk. Yesterday, she forgot her neighbors name. Her memory was playing tricks on her. She was starting to worry about it. She decided to see her doctor. After a complete checkup, her doctor said that Mary was fine. Her forgetfulness was just a normal part of getting older. The doctor suggested that Mary take a class, play cards with friends or help out at the local school to sharpen her memory. It is true that some of us get more forgetful as we age. It may take longer to learn new things, remember certain words or find our glasses. These changes are often signs of mild forgetfulness, not serious memory problems. See your doctor if youre worried about your forgetfulness. Tell him or her about your concerns. Be sure to make a followup appointment to check your memory in the next six months to a year. If you think you might forget, ask a family member, friend or the doctors office to remind you. You can do many things to help keep your memory sharp and stay alert. Here are some ways to help your memory: Learn a new skill. Volunteer in your community, at a school or at your place of worship. Spend time with friends and family. Use memory tools such as big calendars, to-do lists and notes to yourself. Put your wallet or purse, keys and glasses in the same place each day. Get lots of rest. Exercise and eat well. Dont drink a lot of alcohol. Get help if you feel depressed for weeks at a time. Serious memory problems make it hard to do everyday things. For example, you may find it hard to drive, shop or even talk with a friend. Signs of serious memory problems may include: asking the same questions over and over again getting lost in places you know well not being able to follow directions becoming more confused about time, people and places not taking care of yourself (eating poorly, not bathing or being unsafe) See your doctor if you are having any of the problems listed above. Its important to find out what might be causing a serious memory problem. Once you know the cause, you can get the right treatment.

By Ron KornatowskiSpecial to the ChronicleIcould walk down the street and ask everyone I meet if they ever heard of Daystar and most will say no. And, many of those that have heard of Daystar are still unsure or not aware of what all Daystar does for our community. First, let me give you a brief history of Daystar and how we started. Monsignor John McNulty developed the concept Daystar in 1981. A priest at St. Mary Catholic Church near the heart of St. Petersburg, he began seeing an increasing volume of people in distress and who did not know where to turn. The name of the organization was carefully debated. There was concern people might be afraid to come to an organization with a church name or even an official-sounding name. Daystar is a biblical reference to Christ that also connotes a feeling of hope. The first Daystar opened in Dade City near St. Rita Catholic Church. The idea caught on and became established in seven areas. Daystar Life Center opened in Crystal River in 1983 by the the Rev. James Hoge. It was at 8685 Kimberly Court and began as an agency to help residents who may not be able to fit the criteria of available existing services. Daystar moved to its present location in 2000, at 6751 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, across from the Publix shopping plaza; it took over the two-story building once occupied by Central Catholic School of Citrus County. Daystar has had 10 executive directors Mary Jo Walker, Florence Kukula, Barbara Hildenstein, Mary Patey, Cathryn Heitzman, Samantha Brown, Jacqueline Boucher, Richard Meyer, Denise Kennard and, now, Anthony D. Kopka. Daystar has its own Thrift Store on the same property, open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Daystar Life Center has multiple missions in helping to service the needy of Citrus County. Two of these missions are to provide a food pantry and social services program. Thanks to generous donations and the hard work of volunteers, Daystar has been able to successfully maintain these missions. The food pantry is well known throughout the county and in 2012 was visited 5,030 times by local families. Thats providing approximately 21 families with emergency food for each working day of the year. In 2013, Daystar gave out 223,931 pounds of food. The social services programs are less well known, but equally important. For instance, were you aware the Daystar Thrift Store provides clothing to Daystar clients twice a year? Furniture is available for fire victims. Approximately $26,813 in clothing was distributed in 2013. Donations made this possible. And lets not forget purchases from the Thrift Store. They provide real dollars to purchase food for the food pantry and support other social service programs. Among these are emergency financial assistance to include rental ($62,154), utilities ($82,267) and prescription assistance ($3,635) in 2013. Other assistance in 2013 was for transportation ($291) and obtaining I.D.s ($1,434). Unique households received $3,071 and $26,813 in clothing was provided that same year. Daystar has approximately 75 volunteers, many working one day each week. In 2012, Daystar logged in 16,213 volunteer hours. There are many opportunities for volunteering and the hours and days are very flexible. Daystar expanded its facility with the addition of an 850square-foot administrative office, lobby and interview cubicles. The purchase of the additional building was necessary to accommodate the ever-expanding need for services and to add the muchneeded space to the Food Pantry. Daystars partnership with the business community, churches, charities and citizens of Citrus County have allowed the nonprofit organization and these others to be agents in servicing citizens in need. Daystar offers services for those in needCharity for Citrus citizens By Ron KornatowskiSpecial to the ChroniclePaul Kalbacher, a resident of Homosassa for 18 years, is a truck driver for Daystar Life Center of Citrus County. Unlike most seniors who may take early retirement at 62 or for the many who wait until 65 to retire, Kalbacher is 82 and going strong. He picks up donated items for Daystar; he may be asked to pick up clothing, a lamp or two, or a houseful of furniture and appliances. A native of New York, Kalbacher moved to Florida in 1962, made his home in Tampa and worked maintenance for the Holy Redeemer School for 31 years. He relocated to Homosassa and found himself volunteering for Daystar doing odd jobs, assisting in maintenance and driving a truck. He was perceived as an asset to Daystar and became a paid staff employee in 2000. Kalbacher continued doing maintenance and became the driver for Daystar. He took care of the facility and grounds maintenance, and in between pickups of donated items he rode the lawnmower, trimmed hedges, bushes and tree limbs. As Daystar grew, so did the donation of household items. Daystar saw the need to bring on an additional part-time driver to allow for donated items to be picked up on Saturdays. Now, Kalbacher just drives the truck. Its not unusual for Kalbacher to pick up 4,000 pounds of food from the Citrus County Food Bank, deliver it to Daystar and help unload it. He was married for 58 years to Ruth, who died in January 2010. She had been a Daystar volunteer for 10 years.Dedication to DaystarCINDY CONNOLLY/ChroniclePaul Kalbacher, truck driver, has been a volunteer with Daystar for many years. His late wife, Ruth, was also a volunteer for 10 years.

The first thing visitors will notice on the way to the museum are the large oak trees lining the street, something Floral City is well known for. What visitors may not know is these trees became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 in an effort to protect them. In order to be placed on this prestigious list, the item must be at least 100 years old. These oak trees, at 125 years, have met the criteria. A total of 127 oak trees currently line Orange Avenue. If any of these trees become distressed, diseased or damaged, they are immediately replaced. More information on these oak trees can be found in the museum. It may be hard to believe, but this small, friendly community was once a place where 10,000 residents lived. Most were workers in the phosphate mines. Phosphate was exported to Germany and became a big industry in Floral City until 1914, the start of World War I. All phosphate exports then stopped and would never start up again. The great fire in 1920 nearly destroyed all of the commercial buildings in the area. One of the few buildings that remained is the original bank, which was built with bricks instead of wood. That bank still stands tall today and has become The Red Brick Place, a specialty store with unique gifts. The current Ferris Groves exhibit is back by popular demand and its easy to see why. The museum exhibit takes visitors from the beginning of Floral City, before Ferris Groves existed, up to the present time. As a young man, Lawrence Doc Ferris joined his father, James Ferris, who was part of a group of investors, the Homosassa Development Company. This company owned more than 1 million acres of land that included 125 miles of coastline. This also encompassed the Homosassa area called the new city of Homosassa. But, in 1927, land values plummeted and James Ferris died. The land was parceled out to stockholders to avoid foreclosure. Doc Ferris then began establishing Ferris Groves in 1930 and spent years working to make this a success. Eventually, his grove put Floral City on the map and Ferris became the largest employer in the county. This and plenty more information is available while the exhibit remains. The wonderful thing about Floral City is when you move here nobody is a stranger, said Jo Pasby, museum volunteer. Pasby is also excited about the upcoming Floral City Heritage Days planned for Dec. 5 and 6. Planning has already started for the event that brings visitors from all over the area. Guests can enjoy a fish fry on Friday and a home tour on Saturday. Lots of activities take place both days. Learn more about this special event later this year in the Chronicle. Its always held the first Friday and Saturday in December, said Pasby. The Floral City Heritage Museum and Country Store is at 8394 E. Orange Ave. (County Road 48), one block east of U.S. 41. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday only. The museum if free and its easy to find, with free parking available behind the museum.By Sarah EllisSpecial to the ChronicleSummer is synonymous with grilling, cookouts and barbecues. But, as foods heat up with the summer temperatures, foodborne bacteria multiply rapidly, increasing the risk of developing a foodborne illness. Seniors are a high-risk population for developing foodborne illnesses due to immune systems weakened with age. What can you do to be sure you have a safe summer cookout? There are preventative steps you can take to ensure you, your family and friends have a safe summer cookout. Safe food handling begins at the grocery store. When shopping, select your cold foods last, place raw meat and chicken into plastic bags to prevent contamination due to dripping juices and separate raw meat and chicken from other foods in the cart. Once checked out and loaded up, head directly home. Generally, perishable food should be refrigerated within two hours of purchase; however, when temperatures are above 90 degrees, as they frequently are in Florida, perishable food should be refrigerated within an hour. When preparing for a cookout, be sure to keep all cold food cold until ready to cook. If food needs to be defrosted prior to cooking, be sure to completely thaw it to ensure even cooking. Thaw meat or poultry in the refrigerator or running cold water for safe thawing. Marinate all meat and poultry in the refrigerator. Once marinade has been used on raw foods it should be discarded, as it might have harmful bacteria in it. Have extra marinade on hand to be used as a sauce on cooked foods. When grilling food, have clean utensils and platters on hand for cooked foods. Raw meat and poultry have harmful bacteria that could contaminate safely cooked foods if platters and utensils are reused without washing thoroughly first. Also use a food thermometer to guarantee food is cooked thoroughly. Safe minimum internal temperatures are: Poultry and hot dogs 165 degrees Ground beef, veal, lamb and pork 160 degrees Beef, pork, lamb and veal (steaks, chops and roasts) 145 degrees, let rest for three minutes Fish 145 degrees During a cookout, be sure to keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot. Bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses grow best in the temperature danger zone, between 40 degrees and 140 degrees. Cold foods should be kept at 40 degrees or lower until serving. Foods such as potato salad, in a serving dish, can be placed on ice. Once cold food is served, do not let it sit out for more than an hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. Cold food that has been served and left to sit out for longer should be discarded. Cooked hot foods should be kept at 140 degrees or above. Hot foods can be wrapped and placed in an insulated container until serving. Once hot food is served, just like cold foods, it should not sit out for more than an hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. Food that is left out longer should be discarded.4 simple steps to keep food safe By following four simple steps you can keep your food safe from bacteria: 1. Clean: Wash utensils, hands, and food surfaces with warm soapy water before, during and after food preparation. Always wash after preparing meat, poultry, eggs or seafood to protect against bacteria. 2. Separate: Keep raw poultry, meat, eggs and seafood and their juices away from foods that are ready to eat. Do not place cooked food on an unwashed plate that held raw meat, seafood, poultry or eggs. 3. Chill: Perishables, prepared foods and leftovers should be refrigerated or frozen within two hours, one hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. The refrigerator should be set at 40 degrees or lower and the freezer at 0 degrees. 4. Cook: Cook foods to the proper internal temperature. Use a food thermometer to check for doneness.

By BJ JarvisSpecial to the ChronicleSummeris now in full swing and many of us are getting away for a little rest and relaxation. No one wants to come back to find dead plants. What can be done to keep indoor and outdoor plants alive? Here are a couple of tips to assure your plants are healthy when you get back home. Before you leave home, avoid high-nitrogen fertilizer applications that increase growth and, therefore, the need for more maintenance and water. Delay fertilization until you return or choose a formulation with a high percentage of the nitrogen available in a slow-release form. Slowrelease fertilizers will usually look like small gravel or dried peas, as the slow-release coating encases the fertilizer inside, allowing small amounts to dissolve each time it rains or the irrigation system runs. There are a number of self-watering containers that work efficiently for indoor or outdoor plants. Although a bit pricey, self-watering containers typically have a pot within a pot or water reservoir wicking water into the root zone when needed. For outdoor plants, make sure pots have holes or overflow mechanism, as a rainy period may cause plants to swim, causing root rot. Outdoors, consider moving hanging baskets and potted plants to a shaded spot to minimize drying out. Plants could go under a tree or wide porch, or even into the garage where they receive indirect light and make cleanup of dropped leaves easier. In-ground plants need a little attention, too. Check irrigation systems in case the rain occurs all around you, but not at your house. Make sure the rain shut-off device is functioning properly and that all of the irrigation heads are properly aligned. No sense watering the street and sidewalk, while the landscape goes thirsty. If the current landscape doesnt have a 2to 3-inch layer of organic mulch (no rocks, rubber mulch or gravel, as these actually increase the soil temperature and create additional stress for plants), consider top-dressing landscape beds before your trip. Any type of wood product such as pine nuggets, pine straw, even utility mulch will help insulate the soil. This cools plant roots in the summer, while acting as a blanket in the winter. Right before leaving, mow the grass and water outdoor containerized plants. Indoor plants need some TLC, too. Planters can be moved to the tub or out of direct light that makes the soil dry faster. There are self-watering gadgets that fill with water and release it slowly over a few days. Some are designed for small plants, while others are more geared toward trees and shrubs. These tools may be a bit difficult to find locally. Check online sources if your favorite garden center doesnt carry these products. These vacation tips work well if you are only gone about a week. For longer excursions, ask a friend or neighbor to check on your plants and the temporary yard crew, since nothing is better than eyes on the ground. Discuss the current condition of plants so your trusted friend will know what to look for and what can wait. If all else fails, ask your garden buddy to text a picture of a munching bug or yellowed leaf, as longer stays may warrant action before you get back. Hopefully, these tips will allow you to relax while on your vacation, confident the garden is doing well in your absence.

Bulbs: Aztec lily, butterfly lily, walking iris and spider lily can be planted any time of the year even late summer. Herbs: Herbs that can be planted from plants (not seeds) include bay laurel, ginger Mexican tarragon and rosemary Vegetables: A final crop of warm-season vegetables can be planted at the end of the month. These include squash, beans and cucumbers. Tomato can also be planted in containers for the fall garden.What to do Lawns: Apply controlled-release nitrogen to St. Augustine and zoysia lawns this month. Palms: Check older fronds for yellowing, as it may indicate a deficiency of magnesium or potassium. Apply an appropriate palm fertilizer UF recommends palm special, a fertilizer with nutrient analysis of 8-2-12 (plus 4 of magnesium). Minor nutrients are also suggested since palms are a bit finicky about the minor nutrients. Poinsettias:Pinch back poinsettias and mums before the end of the month to allow time for buds to form for winter bloom. Ornamental Plants: Rapid growth and leaching rains may result in nutrient deficiencies in some plants. Fertilize those plants that show signs of deficiencies. Bedding Plants:Remove spent blooms, cut back and fertilize flowering annuals and perennials to extend the bloom season into the fall months.August gardening UF/IFAS/Special to the ChronicleAdjust sprinkler heads to assure they are hitting plants, not the sidewalk or other impervious surfaces. BJ JarvisGREEN GARDENING makes note that City Hall is not pictured since it wasnt built yet. The old railroad tracks passed through several blocks west of City Hall and several of the buildings, although changed a bit, still exist today. I tried to find some resemblance of the railroad tracks but I couldnt find anything, said Gloria Ferguson, museum volunteer. Other historic information includes mastodon bones dug out of Kings Bay, court record books and many photographs that tell a story of an era gone by. A large cabinet tells its own medical story of Doc Hudson. Antique furniture, old school yearbooks, antique clothing and an upright piano have been donated by local residents, along with a special quilt handmade by members of the Creative Quilters depicting 100 years of Crystal River, 1887 to 1987. Ive been here 44 years and things have really changed. The changes have been phenomenal, said Ferguson. The Coastal Heritage Museum opened in 1986. In 1998, the old City Hall building was given the designation of National Register of Historic Places. The museum now operates under the Crystal River Heritage Council. The museum is at 532 N. Citrus Ave., on the west side of U.S. 19 and welcomes visitors from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Admission is free, but donations are accepted. Floral City Heritage MuseumWhen guests visit the Floral City Heritage Museum they are immediately taken back to the days of horse and buggy. A nearby enormous slice of oak tree beckons to be touched to validate its authenticity. Both items take visitors back in time to experience what life was like in Floral City in the late 1800s.

With several museums located throughout Citrus County, theres a treasure trove of information for anyone interested in this rich history. Visiting the many community museums is a fun way to learn about the past and a great way for seniors to escape the summer heat. Old Courthouse Heritage MuseumOne of the most well-known museums is the 1912 Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in downtown Inverness. Its clock tower is recognizable and can be seen for miles. This is where all of the countys business used to be conducted. In its heyday, court sessions were regular occurrences, as were county commission meetings. This building housed the tax collector, property appraiser and many other government entities until 1978, when a much larger, new courthouse opened only a block away. Since then, the old courthouse has gone through an extensive renovation, received its National Register of Historic Places and now holds the rich history of Citrus County. Preservation of historyMuseums educate, interest, amuseOriginal documents dating back to the 1800s are still stored in the vault. The land codes, deed records and tax records remain inside, said John Grannen, Citrus County Historical Society president. Other important documents held inside the vault are court records, judges records, poll tax records and marriage certificates from 1878 to 1969. There are incorporation records from 1894 to 1926; lien record books from 1887-1934; guardianship books from 1912 to 1948 and petition orders from 1879 to 1935. This does not include 103 volumes of deeds dating from 1878 to 1953. And, of course, there is a large selection of early Citrus County Chronicle newspapers that begin in 1908. There is no record of the newspaper from 1895 (the year the paper began) through 1906 and no archives from 1916 to 1921. Starting in 1921, the Chronicle began archiving newspapers in hardback books, even though a few issues are missing. For those who do research, books of newspapers from 1928 to 1975 can be found at the museum, along with microfilm from 1931 to 1939 and 1942 to 1943. The Lakes Region Library also has microfilm of newspapers from 1939 to 1941 and 1945 to October 2000. (Bound books of more recent years are available for in-house research at the Chronicle s Meadowcrest office.) Back in the 1930s you had to pay to register to vote. The poll tax records show most of them as men until after 1920, when women where allowed to vote, said Grannen. The original courthouse was built of wood after the one-acre site was deeded to the county. The wood-frame building was later replaced with the current yellow brick building built in 1912. Much of the old building has been restored, including original windows, flooring and moldings. Other areas of the museum include the newest Chassahowitzka exhibit containing artifacts found during a recent restoration project depicted in the Citrus County Chronicle s Remember When special publication earlier this month. There is also a pre-history gallery and a local history gallery. All this is on the first floor of the museum. The entire second floor is the original courtroom that remains today. Its well known by locals who remember when Elvis Presley came to town. In the movie Follow That Dream, the entire courthouse scene was filmed in this courtroom. Many local residents were used as courtroom fill-ins during the movie. When not in use, this room is available for rent. Up above is a loft with a visible staircase that provides access to the tower clock, which has also been restored. The original clock is now encased in one of the gallery rooms. The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum operates under the Citrus County Historical Society which was founded in 1963 and incorporated in 1979. The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free but donations are welcome.Coastal Heritage MuseumIn Crystal River, the Coastal Heritage Museum resides inside the old lime rock City Hall building built in 1939. Its history is preserved in a unique way. The rock used to build City Hall came from a local quarry and the ceiling is made of magnolia wood. Government business was conducted there until 1970, when a newer and much larger building was built as Crystal River began to grow. When first walking in the front door, visitors are actually walking into what was once the judges court chamber. Three jail cells in the back were used to hold offenders until seen by the judge. But thats OK, since the building also housed the police department and the mayor. Situated on the west side of the building was the fire department.

The first thing visitors will notice on the way to the museum are the large oak trees lining the street, something Floral City is well known for. What visitors may not know is these trees became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1993 in an effort to protect them. In order to be placed on this prestigious list, the item must be at least 100 years old. These oak trees, at 125 years, have met the criteria. A total of 127 oak trees currently line Orange Avenue. If any of these trees become distressed, diseased or damaged, they are immediately replaced. More information on these oak trees can be found in the museum. It may be hard to believe, but this small, friendly community was once a place where 10,000 residents lived. Most were workers in the phosphate mines. Phosphate was exported to Germany and became a big industry in Floral City until 1914, the start of World War I. All phosphate exports then stopped and would never start up again. The great fire in 1920 nearly destroyed all of the commercial buildings in the area. One of the few buildings that remained is the original bank, which was built with bricks instead of wood. That bank still stands tall today and has become The Red Brick Place, a specialty store with unique gifts. The current Ferris Groves exhibit is back by popular demand and its easy to see why. The museum exhibit takes visitors from the beginning of Floral City, before Ferris Groves existed, up to the present time. As a young man, Lawrence Doc Ferris joined his father, James Ferris, who was part of a group of investors, the Homosassa Development Company. This company owned more than 1 million acres of land that included 125 miles of coastline. This also encompassed the Homosassa area called the new city of Homosassa. But, in 1927, land values plummeted and James Ferris died. The land was parceled out to stockholders to avoid foreclosure. Doc Ferris then began establishing Ferris Groves in 1930 and spent years working to make this a success. Eventually, his grove put Floral City on the map and Ferris became the largest employer in the county. This and plenty more information is available while the exhibit remains. The wonderful thing about Floral City is when you move here nobody is a stranger, said Jo Pasby, museum volunteer. Pasby is also excited about the upcoming Floral City Heritage Days planned for Dec. 5 and 6. Planning has already started for the event that brings visitors from all over the area. Guests can enjoy a fish fry on Friday and a home tour on Saturday. Lots of activities take place both days. Learn more about this special event later this year in the Chronicle. Its always held the first Friday and Saturday in December, said Pasby. The Floral City Heritage Museum and Country Store is at 8394 E. Orange Ave. (County Road 48), one block east of U.S. 41. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday only. The museum if free and its easy to find, with free parking available behind the museum.By Sarah EllisSpecial to the ChronicleSummer is synonymous with grilling, cookouts and barbecues. But, as foods heat up with the summer temperatures, foodborne bacteria multiply rapidly, increasing the risk of developing a foodborne illness. Seniors are a high-risk population for developing foodborne illnesses due to immune systems weakened with age. What can you do to be sure you have a safe summer cookout? There are preventative steps you can take to ensure you, your family and friends have a safe summer cookout. Safe food handling begins at the grocery store. When shopping, select your cold foods last, place raw meat and chicken into plastic bags to prevent contamination due to dripping juices and separate raw meat and chicken from other foods in the cart. Once checked out and loaded up, head directly home. Generally, perishable food should be refrigerated within two hours of purchase; however, when temperatures are above 90 degrees, as they frequently are in Florida, perishable food should be refrigerated within an hour. When preparing for a cookout, be sure to keep all cold food cold until ready to cook. If food needs to be defrosted prior to cooking, be sure to completely thaw it to ensure even cooking. Thaw meat or poultry in the refrigerator or running cold water for safe thawing. Marinate all meat and poultry in the refrigerator. Once marinade has been used on raw foods it should be discarded, as it might have harmful bacteria in it. Have extra marinade on hand to be used as a sauce on cooked foods. When grilling food, have clean utensils and platters on hand for cooked foods. Raw meat and poultry have harmful bacteria that could contaminate safely cooked foods if platters and utensils are reused without washing thoroughly first. Also use a food thermometer to guarantee food is cooked thoroughly. Safe minimum internal temperatures are: Poultry and hot dogs 165 degrees Ground beef, veal, lamb and pork 160 degrees Beef, pork, lamb and veal (steaks, chops and roasts) 145 degrees, let rest for three minutes Fish 145 degrees During a cookout, be sure to keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot. Bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses grow best in the temperature danger zone, between 40 degrees and 140 degrees. Cold foods should be kept at 40 degrees or lower until serving. Foods such as potato salad, in a serving dish, can be placed on ice. Once cold food is served, do not let it sit out for more than an hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. Cold food that has been served and left to sit out for longer should be discarded. Cooked hot foods should be kept at 140 degrees or above. Hot foods can be wrapped and placed in an insulated container until serving. Once hot food is served, just like cold foods, it should not sit out for more than an hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. Food that is left out longer should be discarded.4 simple steps to keep food safe By following four simple steps you can keep your food safe from bacteria: 1. Clean: Wash utensils, hands, and food surfaces with warm soapy water before, during and after food preparation. Always wash after preparing meat, poultry, eggs or seafood to protect against bacteria. 2. Separate: Keep raw poultry, meat, eggs and seafood and their juices away from foods that are ready to eat. Do not place cooked food on an unwashed plate that held raw meat, seafood, poultry or eggs. 3. Chill: Perishables, prepared foods and leftovers should be refrigerated or frozen within two hours, one hour if temperatures are above 90 degrees. The refrigerator should be set at 40 degrees or lower and the freezer at 0 degrees. 4. Cook: Cook foods to the proper internal temperature. Use a food thermometer to check for doneness.

Mary couldnt find her car keys. She looked on the hook just inside the front door. They werent there. She searched in her purse. No luck. Finally, she found them on her desk. Yesterday, she forgot her neighbors name. Her memory was playing tricks on her. She was starting to worry about it. She decided to see her doctor. After a complete checkup, her doctor said that Mary was fine. Her forgetfulness was just a normal part of getting older. The doctor suggested that Mary take a class, play cards with friends or help out at the local school to sharpen her memory. It is true that some of us get more forgetful as we age. It may take longer to learn new things, remember certain words or find our glasses. These changes are often signs of mild forgetfulness, not serious memory problems. See your doctor if youre worried about your forgetfulness. Tell him or her about your concerns. Be sure to make a followup appointment to check your memory in the next six months to a year. If you think you might forget, ask a family member, friend or the doctors office to remind you. You can do many things to help keep your memory sharp and stay alert. Here are some ways to help your memory: Learn a new skill. Volunteer in your community, at a school or at your place of worship. Spend time with friends and family. Use memory tools such as big calendars, to-do lists and notes to yourself. Put your wallet or purse, keys and glasses in the same place each day. Get lots of rest. Exercise and eat well. Dont drink a lot of alcohol. Get help if you feel depressed for weeks at a time. Serious memory problems make it hard to do everyday things. For example, you may find it hard to drive, shop or even talk with a friend. Signs of serious memory problems may include: asking the same questions over and over again getting lost in places you know well not being able to follow directions becoming more confused about time, people and places not taking care of yourself (eating poorly, not bathing or being unsafe) See your doctor if you are having any of the problems listed above. Its important to find out what might be causing a serious memory problem. Once you know the cause, you can get the right treatment.

By Ron KornatowskiSpecial to the ChronicleIcould walk down the street and ask everyone I meet if they ever heard of Daystar and most will say no. And, many of those that have heard of Daystar are still unsure or not aware of what all Daystar does for our community. First, let me give you a brief history of Daystar and how we started. Monsignor John McNulty developed the concept Daystar in 1981. A priest at St. Mary Catholic Church near the heart of St. Petersburg, he began seeing an increasing volume of people in distress and who did not know where to turn. The name of the organization was carefully debated. There was concern people might be afraid to come to an organization with a church name or even an official-sounding name. Daystar is a biblical reference to Christ that also connotes a feeling of hope. The first Daystar opened in Dade City near St. Rita Catholic Church. The idea caught on and became established in seven areas. Daystar Life Center opened in Crystal River in 1983 by the the Rev. James Hoge. It was at 8685 Kimberly Court and began as an agency to help residents who may not be able to fit the criteria of available existing services. Daystar moved to its present location in 2000, at 6751 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway, across from the Publix shopping plaza; it took over the two-story building once occupied by Central Catholic School of Citrus County. Daystar has had 10 executive directors Mary Jo Walker, Florence Kukula, Barbara Hildenstein, Mary Patey, Cathryn Heitzman, Samantha Brown, Jacqueline Boucher, Richard Meyer, Denise Kennard and, now, Anthony D. Kopka. Daystar has its own Thrift Store on the same property, open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Daystar Life Center has multiple missions in helping to service the needy of Citrus County. Two of these missions are to provide a food pantry and social services program. Thanks to generous donations and the hard work of volunteers, Daystar has been able to successfully maintain these missions. The food pantry is well known throughout the county and in 2012 was visited 5,030 times by local families. Thats providing approximately 21 families with emergency food for each working day of the year. In 2013, Daystar gave out 223,931 pounds of food. The social services programs are less well known, but equally important. For instance, were you aware the Daystar Thrift Store provides clothing to Daystar clients twice a year? Furniture is available for fire victims. Approximately $26,813 in clothing was distributed in 2013. Donations made this possible. And lets not forget purchases from the Thrift Store. They provide real dollars to purchase food for the food pantry and support other social service programs. Among these are emergency financial assistance to include rental ($62,154), utilities ($82,267) and prescription assistance ($3,635) in 2013. Other assistance in 2013 was for transportation ($291) and obtaining I.D.s ($1,434). Unique households received $3,071 and $26,813 in clothing was provided that same year. Daystar has approximately 75 volunteers, many working one day each week. In 2012, Daystar logged in 16,213 volunteer hours. There are many opportunities for volunteering and the hours and days are very flexible. Daystar expanded its facility with the addition of an 850square-foot administrative office, lobby and interview cubicles. The purchase of the additional building was necessary to accommodate the ever-expanding need for services and to add the muchneeded space to the Food Pantry. Daystars partnership with the business community, churches, charities and citizens of Citrus County have allowed the nonprofit organization and these others to be agents in servicing citizens in need. Daystar offers services for those in needCharity for Citrus citizens By Ron KornatowskiSpecial to the ChroniclePaul Kalbacher, a resident of Homosassa for 18 years, is a truck driver for Daystar Life Center of Citrus County. Unlike most seniors who may take early retirement at 62 or for the many who wait until 65 to retire, Kalbacher is 82 and going strong. He picks up donated items for Daystar; he may be asked to pick up clothing, a lamp or two, or a houseful of furniture and appliances. A native of New York, Kalbacher moved to Florida in 1962, made his home in Tampa and worked maintenance for the Holy Redeemer School for 31 years. He relocated to Homosassa and found himself volunteering for Daystar doing odd jobs, assisting in maintenance and driving a truck. He was perceived as an asset to Daystar and became a paid staff employee in 2000. Kalbacher continued doing maintenance and became the driver for Daystar. He took care of the facility and grounds maintenance, and in between pickups of donated items he rode the lawnmower, trimmed hedges, bushes and tree limbs. As Daystar grew, so did the donation of household items. Daystar saw the need to bring on an additional part-time driver to allow for donated items to be picked up on Saturdays. Now, Kalbacher just drives the truck. Its not unusual for Kalbacher to pick up 4,000 pounds of food from the Citrus County Food Bank, deliver it to Daystar and help unload it. He was married for 58 years to Ruth, who died in January 2010. She had been a Daystar volunteer for 10 years.Dedication to DaystarCINDY CONNOLLY/ChroniclePaul Kalbacher, truck driver, has been a volunteer with Daystar for many years. His late wife, Ruth, was also a volunteer for 10 years.

By Ben KampschroerSpecial to the ChronicleYou may have heard of the Eat Local Movement, a campaign encouraging people to eat food that has been grown and prepared locally. This movement has people thinking more about where the food they eat comes from, and it can really make or break a tourist location. Things like locally caught seafood and locally brewed drinks are a big draw for tourists, who literally want to taste what it is like to live in Florida. Eating locally also bolsters a sense of pride in the community you live in, and can be a very rewarding experience for both consumer and producer. But why should we stop at food? Local restaurants must compete with larger chains, so must our locally grown websites compete with other sites. Local resources are sometimes harder to find, but they are worth the extra searching because those who are creating these resources know the community and can tailor the sites to be more useful to locals. The first stop on our tour is bocc.citrus.fl.us, which is the Board of County Commissioners website. This is an excellent starting point for many of your information needs. Here, you will find links to almost anything that the BOCC handles. You can find recent court records, learn about disaster safety or even pay a ticket. For those of you who are looking for employment, this is the place to look for any new job postings that the county is offering. This site also announces upcoming county events and news, such as which holidays our county services will not be available on, as well as workshops the county offers.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, July 31, 2014 G13 SENIORSWITHSAVVY G4Thursday, July 31, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SENIORSWITHSAVVY By Doris ButtSpecial to the ChronicleOur first scarecrow at the farmstead was a couple dressed for Halloween. They were the beginning of a fun project that went on for years. We created Harry and Sally, the sentinels of the barn. One of my favorite things to do was dress them. Every time I changed their clothes, I took their pictures. Through the years, I took so many photos of the couple that I recently put them in a booklet, so they would be handy for reminiscing moments. My favorite outfits were a swimsuit dress-up when my pool friends came for a picnic, a salute to the Indiana Pacers Reggie Millers retirement and their pink outfits during breast cancer awareness month. My scarecrow pride and joy was the creation of Mr. McGregors garden. The old fellow spent years being frustrated by the rabbit family that also occupied his garden: Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter Rabbit. He did manage to capture Peters little blue coat, which was proudly displayed in the garden. It started out a true vegetable garden with tiny rows of vegetables and a few flowers. As years went by, Mr. McGregor cut back on vegetables and specialized in hollyhocks. After a time, the rabbits moved on to a friends garden about the same time Rays shoulders gave up gardening. My favorite memory of the garden is when grandson Aaron, age 2, hopped on my golf cart and with the speed of light plowed through the heart of the garden, bounced over its rock wall and landed in the middle of the road. No harm came to him, but he left a path of petunias and poor Flopsy bit the dust. When we sold the farmstead, we moved where the yard is taken care of for a fee. We can only plant flowers or whatever we choose (I thought) in the mulched area around the front of the house. It did not take long for me to figure out there was room for some special friends seen daily in the Chronicle. Quite a few years ago, while still at the farmstead, I emailed cartoon artist Brian Crane asking if I could make scarecrows of his characters and he replied that he would be honored if I did. Why anyone would put Pickles and Opal in their front yard might be puzzling to you. I guess the bottom line is that it brings me much pleasure. They make me smile. And I hope I am sharing a reason to smile with those that see them as they pass by. However, I have to admit Ray and I now live on a street that probably doesnt get more than a dozen cars passing by each day. I just cut Pickles, Opal, their cat Muffin and dog Roscoe from the comics and enlarged with my printer many times. They looked just like they do in the comics. Ray made the couples bodies, which was much more of a project than a couple of sticks. Our daughter made Opals pink polka-dotted dress and apron like she always wears. Pickles was dressed in Goodwills finest. We tucked Pickles and Opal in the little space in the allowed mulch, with Muffin and Roscoe nearby. Then we planted flowing petunias that matched Opals pink dress. It was a grand scene. The mail lady noticed them. She told Ray, He looked better without his mustache. That brought a laugh. I sent a photo to Brian. He liked them. So you might think that is the end of the story. Well, readers, our homeowners association said, No. No. No. My friends have retreated to the comfort of our garage. All we have in our mulch now are some pretty pink petunias that match Opals dress, which brings a rather sad ending to this column.

As many of you know, I try to stay up with all the new technology. One of my reasons for doing this is, of course, my job requires some level of computer/communication skills. Aside from that, I want to make sure I continue to communicate with my beautiful and overly intelligent grandchildren. How many of us have said to ourselves we would never be tied to a cell phone? Now I have two one for work, one for personal use. In the past I said I didnt see any reason why I would ever want to text anyone. Well, again, that is mostly how I communicate with family and friends these days. I thought to myself, I simply dont understand why anyone would want to sign up for Facebook. Then I discovered one could find classmates and reconnect with them on Facebook. So, a few years ago, I opened a Facebook page and I did reconnect with a lot of my childhood friends and classmates from my hometown of Brooksville. Oh, OK. The real reason I opened the page was so I could spy on my grandchildren. While Facebook is a great medium for socializing, there are problems that crop up; not so much with the site itself, but with the people who use Facebook. Im finding, by and large, they are the same people that send those gooey Christmas letters. You know, the ones that start out with, my year has been wonderful, we won millions of dollars in the lottery and its been uphill from there or Little Susie is now a renowned doctor and she devotes all of her spare time to childrens charities! Now it seems Im bombarded all year-round with continual Family Updates. Please spare me! It seems this group rarely has any family/life issues like the rest of us normal beings. If they do report a catastrophe, it would go something like this, Our little Jerrod was allergic to the allleather couch with solid gold trim that we purchased for our living room in our new 95,000-square-foot home. We switched to all velvet and diamonds and he is recovering nicely. They seem to suffer from the Its all about me syndrome. Rarely ever do these Facebook users really report the normal family stuff, like, Grandma had her license taken away because she drove into (not to, but into, smack dab up the soda isle) the local 7-11 store. Wait, maybe that isnt exactly normal, but you get the picture. Could it be that maybe, just maybe, things arent exactly as they report them? Now, thats something to ponder. Seriously, I am glad all is more than well for these people, but please, cant they identify with us commoners once in a while? Or, how about this, I could just stay off Facebook. That might not be such a good idea, because then I wouldnt be able to snoop into other peoples lives, now would I? Oh, well, I really must go now because my limo is waiting to take me to my private jet. Just kidding. Until next time, keep laughing, because laughter is the best medicine!

The BOCC also hosts a page for the Extension Services Office, an excellent resource for those of you with a green thumb. The Extension Office has teamed up with the University of Florida to offer information on horticulture, food safety and finance among many other things. Love animals? You might want to take a look at Citrus Countys Animal Services website, citruscritters.com. If you are looking for a dog or cat, take a look at the postings on this site; it wont be long till you are taking one of these cute little critters to a new forever home. Maybe dogs and cats arent for you; there is also an other category that might contain anything from birds and hamsters to pigs and horses. There is also plenty of information on volunteering with the animals, which (in my opinion) sounds like a lot of fun. The county also offers obedience classes that will have your naughty puppy acting like a little angel. Safety is important and the Sheriffs Office website, sheriffcitrus.org, is a great place to look for tips on keeping safe. There is plenty of information on crime prevention, as well, and you can even fill out a form to have the Sheriffs Office come out and inspect your home for certain safety features. If you are interested in keeping your children or grandchildren safe, you might want to check this site for more information about the local Child ID program. The Sheriffs Office has all sorts of services available and its website is the best place to find out about what they offer the community. If you are looking to find out what types of events are happening in the community, there are two great places to check. One, of course, is the librarys website, citruslibraries.org. Under the calendar tab, you will find all of the events we are hosting for the community. You can also check the local community website citruscountyFL. com for a very wellmaintained community calendar. When you are looking for something to do, these are the first places to go. All of these sites are great and there are many more out there to find. Get on the Web and start browsing locally!

Special to the ChronicleEach month, the PetMeals Program provides dog and cat food to the companion pets of senior citizens who receive Meals On Wheels. The PetMeals program was started when it was noticed that a very thin man was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal. When asked why he was doing this, he said he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved dog. The PetMeals Program is a 100 percent donation-based, volunteer-driven program that provides dog food and cat food to senior citizens who receive Meals On Wheels. Do you have a pet who is a member of your family? Do you love animals? The PetMeals Program is seeking help from pet lovers throughout Citrus County. If you are able, donate unopened bags or cans of dog and cat food at a local community center, or monetary donations can be sent to: PetMeals Program, 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court, Key #3, Lecanto, FL 34461. During this difficult economy, some of the hardest hit are senior citizens. Many seniors have no family members and find themselves alone with their pets as their only companions. Any contributions are accepted and appreciated. For more information about how to help and to make food or monetary donations, call 352-527-5975. PetMeals needs help to feed seniors companions Citrus Publishing1614 N.
